         Le livre de tous les ménages ou l'art de conserver pendant plusieurs années, toutes les substances animales et végétales 3e édition revue et augmentée de procédés nouveaux, d'expériences et d'observations nouvelles.

      Paris, Barrois, 1813, in 8°, de XXXXVIII-176 pp., ill. d'une planche gravée se dépl., (un peu courte en marge inf.) demi-percal époque vert clair, qq. rousseurs sinon bon exemplaire avec la signature d'Appert au verso du titre. Bonne édition très augmentée, et en partie originale. Fr. N. Appert quelques temps confiseur près de Paris, gagna par son procédé de stérilisation et de conservation le prix proposé par Napoléon pour trouver une solution à la conservation des aliments pour les militaires. Mais les conditions du prix l'obligèrent à divulguer son procédé, ce qu'il fit par la présente publication. Il exploita quelques temps son brevet, mais finalement ruiné, il mourut pauvre. Toutefois les conserves connurent un énorme succès et suscitèrent la création d'industries. Tout d'abord conditionnées dans des récipients en verre, elles furent peu à peu mises dans des boîtes en fer-blanc soudé. Appert anticipe les travaux de Pasteur par sa méthode de stérilisation, et ce dernier reconnut lui-même que la "Pasteurisation" n'était rien d'autre qu'un perfectionnement de la méthode de F. N. Appert. ¶ Vicaire 35 - Bitting p.14 - Bulloch Hist. of Bacteriology, p. 44 "With his method Appert demonstrated practically the process of pasteurization, nearly fifty years before its scientific explanation" - En Français dans le texte n°220 - Oberlé n°184.

As Spanish power in the New World was waning, its grip on Cuba was threatened by domestic and foreign intruders. This decree, issued by Fernando VII on June 17, 1813 and printed on September 20, orders the annulment of all criminal cases. This amnesty policy, extended to other areas of New Spain as well, sought to placate opposition forces. It calls on all levels of government to announce and enforce the decree. It is endorsed in manuscript.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM JOHN TRUMBULL TO LORD SIDMOUTH, ACCOMPANIED BY TRUMBULL'S NOTES ON THEIR RESULTING CONVERSATION ON THE WAR OF 1812]

      [London], 1813. [3]pp. Both sheets held together with period wax and a seal tamp. Quarto. Very faint old fold lines. Fine. Letter sent by Trumbull to Sidmouth requesting "the honour of a few minutes conversation at any hour which his Lordship shall please to name." The second sheet bears Sidmouth's cordial response, naming the time and place. It does not appear that Trumbull was acting in a kind of official capacity but was, perhaps, merely paying an informal social visit on an influential friend. On the verso of Sidmouth's response, Trumbull has made notes on their conversation. His notes read, in part: "Conversation turned on the destruction of small towns on the Chesapeake. I expressed my high satisfaction that the officers & troops in Canada, instead of retaliating the threats held out in Gen'l Hull's proclamation, of giving no quarters & the conduct of the commanding officer of Fort Niagara, in firing hot balls upon the Village of Newark - had conducted the war with humanity & restrained the savages in a great degree from their usual habits of indiscriminate destruction & burning....His [Lordship] made many professions of gen'l good will to the U.S. - regretted the war which had been forced upon [Great Britain] by the unreasonable pretensions of the [American Government], etc." Trumbull served as John Jay's secretary during the peace negotiations with Britain that followed the American Revolution. Sidmouth had served as a Speaker in the House of Commons during Trumbull's time as Jay's secretary, and the two may have become friendly at that time. Likewise, Trumbull spent significant time in London for his painting career. When Trumbull called on Sidmouth in 1813, Sidmouth was in the beginning of his lengthy term as Britain's Home Secretary. An interesting piece for those interested in both Trumbull and the War of 1812.

      Philadelphia: Printed by A. Cornman, 1813. [2],46pp. Quarto. Original blue-grey wrappers. Horizontal crease to center. Light foxing and tanning. Bottom edge of pp.3-4 torn away, costing the list of states, territories, and districts on those pages (though the list is easily accessible from the adjacent pages).

Includes statistics on the manufacture of cotton and cloth goods, hats, guns, candles, skins, wood products, and much, much more. There is also information on the number and types of industrial machines in use in the various states. Sabin appends a note regarding this title to his description of the third United States Census, though this actually appears to be a stand-alone, privately printed publication, not a government document.

        Reglamento para el exercicio y maniobras de la infantería. De las evoluciones de línea.

      [colophon: Cadiz: en la Imprenta Tormentaria á cargo de Juan Domingo Villegas 8vo (21.5 cm; 8.125"). [2], 281–385, 15 pp., fold. plts. numbered xxxix –lxviii.. 1813] At the base of the title-page of this infantry manual is printed "Reimpreso por disposicion del . . . señor don Carlos Doyle, teniente general de los reales exercitos." => That is, Lt. Gen. Charles William Doyle (1770–1842) ordered this work to be printed. Doyle was an Irish-born British lieutenant-colonel who in 1808 was ordered to Portugal to help fight Napoleon in the Peninsular Campaign. He very successfully aided the Spanish army in instilling discipline and organizing light infantry and was made a lieutenant general in the Spanish army. In 1811 Britain ordered him home, but when he reached Cadiz, Sir Henry Wellesley convinced him to command a camp at which a new army was being organized for action in the south of Spain. Again he was highly successful in his military instruction of new troops, and as a result was promoted to full colonel in the British army; he remained in Spain till the end of the war in 1814. The present work, extracted from the larger one of the same title printed at Madrid by the Imprenta Real in 1808, was clearly printed for the instruction of Doyle's southern army. At the rear of the volume are => 30 folding plates setting forth various dispositions and movements of infantry troops; clear, careful, verbal explanations of these precede them. Searches of NUC, WorldCat, and the CCPBE locate => only three copies worldwide (all in Spain). Provenance: Contemporary signature of "Velez" on title-page. Dark brown speckled calf, black gilt-lettered title-label (a little chipped) to gilt-ruled spine, marbled endpapers; binding lightly rubbed. Age-toning and general light soiling, occasionally a dog-ear or a spot, all plates clean, well-attached, and whole at folds. => A very sound, very good copy.

        Isle de Corse (Corsica).

      - Dalla "Carta Amministrativa del Regno d&#146;Italia co' suoi stabilimenti politici, militari, civili e religiosi e con una parte degli stati limitrofi. Costrutta nel Deposito della Guerra per ordine del Ministro della Guerra e Marina nell'anno MDCCCXI, aggiunta e corretta nell'anno 1813", edita a Milano nel 1813 (una grande carta composta da più fogli quadreattati e applicati su tela d'epoca, ciascuno di cm 54 x 67 circa per un perimetro totale di cm 1400 x 1100 circa), carta della Corsica, colore, composta da due fogli uniti, numerati come foglio XVII sulla parte incisa, e con il numero 22 e 27 al retro della tela. Benedetto e Gaudenzio Bordiga furono incisori e cartografi, originari della Valsesia e attivi a Milano nella prima metà del XIX secolo, un periodo caratterizzato da alterne vicende storico politiche, in cui realizzarono un discreto corpus incisorio. L'opera più importante cui contribuirono fu la "Carte générale du Théâtre de la Guerre en Italie", una grande carta commissionata, nel 1797 dallo Stato Maggiore dell'Armata Francese di Napoleone, al capo battaglione Bacler d'Albe, capo del Gabinetto Cartografico Francese: la carta, celebrativa della prima campagna d'Italia, fu in gran parte realizzata a partire da carte preesistenti, fu realizzata in cinquantaquattro fogli sotto la direzione di Giacomo Pinchetti e fu appunto incisa dai fratelli Benedetto (1800 - 1834) e Gaudenzio Bordiga. Gaudenzio Bordiga (Camasco, Varallo, 10 febbraio 1773 &#150; Milano, 18 gennaio 1837), seguì a Varallo studi letterari e di disegno. Stabilitosi a Milano con il fratello Benedetto, fu capo incisore dell'Istituto Geografico Militare e mantenne tale incarico anche dopo l'occupazione austriaca. Senza la collaborazione del fratello Benedetto, Gaudenzio disegnò, e a volte incise, varie carte geografiche militari ("Carta delle stazioni militari in Italia", 1804; "Carta militare del Regno d'Etruria e del principato di Lucca", 1806) e scrisse opere di erudizione storico &#150; artistica ("Notizie intorno alle opere di Gaudenzio Ferrari, pittore e plasticatore", Milano, G. Pirotta, 1821; "Storia e guida del Sacro Monte di Varallo", Varallo, 1830). Alla carta mancano quattro riquadri ma delle sole parti bianche (e che peraltro possono essere facilmente integrati con altri, originali, provenienti dalla stessa granda carta). Molto buono lo stato di conservazione.

        La Nouvelle Atala; ou, La Fille de l’Esprit: Légende Indienne par Chahta-Ima (De La Louisiane).

      Imprimerie du Propagatetr [sic] Catholique. First edition.. Wrappers a little worn and creased; very good copy.. BAL 7910; OCLC records four copies (BL, two in France and UC Berkeley). Small 8vo, original printed blue wrappers, 139 pages. A novella in French by Adrien Emmanuel Rouquette (1813-1887) about an idealized Louisiana Indian maiden. At the conclusion is an unsigned review of the work by the young assistant editor of the New Orleans Item, Lafcadio Hearn - his first appearance in a book, preceding his first book (a translation of Gautier’s Cleopatra’s Nights) by three years. Rouquette was a poet and priest from New Orleans who spent much of his time living in the countryside with the Choctaw Indians (who named him “Chahta-Ima”), due in part to local disapproval of his iconoclastic and anti-slavery views. Hearn was taken with Rouquette and praises his novella in the review: “We have before us the advance pages of a romance which we do not hesitate to term the most idyllic work in the literature of Louisiana.” See the DAB for Rouquette.

        The Life of Nelson

      London: Printed for John Murray, Bookseller to the Admiralty and to the Board of Longitude,, 1813. 2 volumes octavo, (156 × 98 mm). Contemporary straight-grained calf by David Batten of Clapham Common, tickets to rear pastedowns, new green morocco lettering- and red morocco numberoing pieces to style, low flat bands with triple fillets, compartments with arabesque tools in blind, attractive zig-zag panel in blind to the boards, foliate roll to the board edges and to turn-ins, marbled edges and endpapers, narrow green silk page-markers remain intact. Engraved portrait frontispiece to volume I, frontispiece of volume II with five facsimile signatures, both half-titles present, ads dated March 1813 tipped in at the front endpapers of Volume I. Just a little rubbed, foxing fore and aft as usual, affecting frontispieces and title pages, light browning and a scatter of foxing throughout, very good. First edition, first issue with p.258 of volume II misnumbered as 852. "Southey constructed an early-nineteenth century hero as a model for the young - in his words, a 'patriotic manual.' He told a friend that he would write 'such a life of Nelson as shall be put into the hands of every youth destined for the Navy.'" (Knight The Pursuit of Victory p.542) As it most assuredly was, and many more besides, coming to dominate the Nelson biography market, perpetually in print. Elegantly written and surprisingly even-handed on the issue of the Neapolitan Jacobins. This copy with the ownership inscriptions of William Calvert of Greta Bank, friend of Wordsworth, and of Southey, together with the later inscription of William's daughter Mary in her married name Stanger, having married Joshua Stanger, also a friend and correspondent of Southey. Mary's cousin, Mary Maude was married to Constantine Moorsom, the son of Admiral Richard Moorsom, captain of the Revenge, "who bore a distinguished and active part" at Trafalgar (Ralfe, p.33), and carried the great banner at Nelson's funeral (ODNB). A very pretty sdet.

        Description of the Retreat, an institution near York, for insane persons of the Society of Friends. Containing an account of its origin and progress, the modes of treatment, and a statement of cases.

      York: printed for W. Alexander, and sold by him. 1813. 8vo., xx + (1) + 22-229 + (1)pp., engraved double-page plate of the North Front of the Retreat, two double-page engraved plans, the plates with some dampstaining and foxing, mainly marginal, intermittent slight foxing throughout, old (19th century) ink stamp in title margin of 'Medical Staff Library', the stamp repeated on verso of frontispiece, contemporary half calf over marbled boards, fairly recently rebacked, a sound but not beautiful copy. First edition: 8vo. issue. Garrison Morton 4925.1. Hunter & Macalpine pp.684-690. Norman cat. 2109. Osler 6561. Wellcome V, p.306 (the 4to. issue). A classic in the history of European psychiatry and care for the mentally ill. Notably it gave the first detailed account of the methods and results of a mild, humane system, in the first purpose-built institution of its kind. In contrast to the notorious closed-door policies of other insane asylums, the Retreat, a Quaker asylum, welcomed the observation of its humanitarian methods, the success of which was praised throughout England and the Continent. 'This book by a layman did more to improve the care and treatment of the insane in asylums and indirectly also to stimulate the development of psychiatry than many a 'scientific' tome written by a physician. ... The pioneer work of the Tukes opened a new chapter in the history of the insane because of the avowed aim to accord them the dignity and status of sick human beings, and to substitute self-restraint based on self-esteem induced by a mild system of management for the debasing and brutalising coercion and restraint of the 'terrific system'.'

The expedition was to attempt to &#145;open relations with Nippon and the Sandwich Islands, to facilitate trade in South America, to examine California for a possible colony, and make a thorough study and report of the Northwest coast, its trade and its future.&#146;.The importance of this work is due to its being the official account of the first Russian expedition to circumnavigate the globe, and the discoveries and rectifications of charts that were made, especially in the North Pacific and on the northwest coast of America.The introduction is particularly important and interesting because of the information it contains respecting the state of Russian commerce during the eighteenth century, the Russian voyages and discoveries in the Northern Ocean, and the Russian fur trade" (Hill).

        [drop-title] Decreto. La Asamblea general sanciona el decreto expedido por la Junta Provisional Gubernativa de estas provincias en 1.o de setiembre de 1811, relativo a la extincion del tributo, y ademas derogada la mita.

      [Buenos-Ayres: {Impr. de los Niños Expósitos} Folio (31 cm; 12.5"). [1] f. (printed on both sides).. 1813] The General Assembly herewith holds "los mencionados indios de todas las provincias unidas => por hombres perfectamente libres, y en igualdad de derechos todos los demas ciudadanos que las pueblan." It additionally specifically ratifies the 1 September 1811 decree of the Junta Provisional Gubernativa that freed the Indians from encomienda and mita obligations, and from church-related tribute. This fine and very important human rights document is printed in double-column format in four languages: Spanish and Aymará on the recto, and Quechua and Guaraní on the verso. => This is the first four-language publication in the New World. Documents printed in more than one indigenous New World language are rare: That this one presents a decree in three native languages is exceptional and it is even more so because of its significant, perhaps not unrelated content. The promulgators clearly wanted this document conferring legal rights on los Indios aymará, quechua y guaraní to be clearly understandable to them as doing that — partly, if not primarily, to gain their support in the ongoing war of Independence — and they wanted to describe those rights to them with unmistakable correctness. The press, of course, was one of the most famous of Spanish America's "orphan presses," maintained as a teaching, vocational operation in the city's orphanage for boys. We trace no copies of this item in NUC Pre-1956, and WorldCat locates only three copies in U.S. libraries, one in the Spanish National Library, one in the Chilean National Library, and none in Britain. Similarly, COPAC fails to find any copies in its reporting libraries. Possibly removed from a bound volume. Uniformly age-toned. => A good exemplar without stains or tears. In a red cloth folder.

Various maps show the knowledge or imagination of early geographers such as Ptolemy, Strabo, Pomponius Mela, Herodotus and Isidore of Seville, while the text deals exhaustively with the history of geography and geographers, however obscure. As a test for example it is interesting to see that Cosmas Indicopleustes is discussed at some length.Pascal-François Gossellin (1751-1830) travelled widely through Europe as a young man, while his parents encouraged him to learn the ways of business. He joined the Royal Council of Commerce in 1784, and later the central administration under Louis XVI. He continued to travel, and developed friendships with Necker and Voltaire, both then in Switzerland.However he was always pulled towards the world of learning and especially the study of ancient geography. In 1790 he won a competition set by the Academie Royale des Inscriptions (see above) and the following year he was elected to membership.When the Revolution came he devoted himself to research for this book, analysing all the texts to which he had access.

For a surperb & rare English trans- lation see TALES OF THE SAMURAI OGURI HANGWAN ICHIDAIKI... translated by James S. De Benneville or inquire with us as we may have a copy available. The work is a stunning story or Kodan [dialogue-lecture] with excellent illustrations of the characters & main events. De Benneville even cites this edition on p.xi of the preface, from which one can expect he did this translation. By and large a great example of from Japan's rich pantheon of literary and Confucian moral class- ics. Stories of this nature were the foundation on which Bu- shido, or the Samurai's "spirit" was based, it was the kind of book that most noblemen, noblewomen and Samurai read for moral training, and the substance for generations.

        La nature outragée par les écarts de l'imagination, ou nouveau traité d'onanisme; et guide physiologique pour la jeunesse

Unique édition de cet ouvrage de moral destiné à écarter par la crainte et la peur les prémisses de volupté chez les jeunes gens. Faisant parade d'un discours pseudo-médical et "physiologique", l'auteur cherche, sans aucun argumentaire scientifique valable, à entourer de peur la pratique de la masturbation et de l'onanisme chez les garçons et les filles, ainsi que la naissance de la libido chez l'adolescent. Rare traité contre l'onanisme. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
