      Havana, 1813. Folio. Old fold lines. Moderately chipped and worn at edges. Lightly and evenly toned. Contemporary manuscript notations. Good. A rare printed decree from Cuba at the beginning of the 19th century, as Spanish power in the world was waning but Spain's grip on Cuba was still quite firm. This decree, issued by the King on June 14, 1813 and printed on September 20, announces new laws regarding the rights to vote and to be elected to hold government positions for professors and scholars from certain universities, collegiums, and seminars. The decree forbade these rights to the Knights of Justice of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem as well as members of the four military orders of Santiago, Calatrava, Alcantara, and Montesa. It is endorsed in manuscript, with the imprint and header also written in by hand. Early Caribbean imprints are rare.

        The Works of Robert Burns with an account of his life, and a criticism of his writings... Seventh edition

      London: Cadell and Davies, 1813. Frontispiece and preliminary leaves of the first volume foxed; leather bindings a little mottled but most attractive.. Five volumes, with an arresting portrait frontispiece; uniformly bound in contemporary full green polished calf with gilt ornament including a lyre in gilt on front and back covers; a most endearing set. A beautifully bound set of the complete works. The editor, Dr. James Currie, was primarily motivated by a desire to raise funds for Burns' struggling widow and children. Currie writes powerfully on Burns' powerful eloquence: 'having occasion to make an excursion to the county of Dumfries, in the summer of 1792, I had there an opportunity of seeing and conversing with Burns. It has been my fortune to know some men of high reputation in literature, as well as in public life; but never to meet any one who, in the course of a single interview, communicated to me so strong an impression of the force and versatility of his talents. After this I read the poems then published with greater interest and attention, and with a full conviction that, extraordinary as they are, they afford but an inadequate proof of the powers of their unfortunate author.'This set is composed of the seventh edition of the Works of Robert Burns (first four volumes) with as the extra fifth volume the Reliques of Robert Burns; Consisting chiefly of original letters, poems, and critical observations on Scottish Songs (collected by R.H. Cromek, second edition, London 1813).

        Narrative of a Five Years' Expedition Against the Revolted Negroes of Surinam, in Guiana, on the wild coast of South America; from the year 1772, to 1777: Elucidating the history of that country, and describing its productions, viz. quadrupeds, birds, fishes, reptiles, trees, shrubs, fruits, & roots; with an account of the Indians of Guiana, & negroes of Guinea. Illustrated with 80 elegant engravings from drawings made by the author.

      London: J. Johnson & Th. Payne, 1813. Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good. xviii, 423, [blank], [4]; iv,419, [3] pages; plus and engraved frontispiece, 2 folding maps, 78 plates, sixteen by William Blake. The most famous account of slavery in the Americas in the 18th century. Stedman spent four years as a soldier in Dutch Suriname, beginning in 1773, working to put down a slave rebellion. Stedman was a keen observer of culture and natural history, but he was no abolitionist and owned at least one slave himself. His account of his affair with a slave named Joanna became the stuff of romance (and was reprinted separately in the 19th century), yet he did not buy her freedom. Stedman did, however, ransom their son, who became a British naval officer. His participation in the peculiar institution and his decisive military action against escaped slaves gave his accounts of the barbarity of the institution the ring of unassailable truth. In its review of the first edition, the London Review and Literary Journal (January 1797), wrote: “The horrible instances of cruelty, which he narrates with dreadful minuteness, would dispose every real friend to mankind to reprobate, in the most decided manner, both the Slave-trade and its votaries…Most of his readers will probably be disgusted with a picture, too frequently exhibited, of shocking, inconceivable, and gratuitous barbarity.” (Modern scholarship based on Stedman's original manuscript and journals has shown that the publisher revised the book to downplay the anti-slavery elements). In the four decades after its original publication, Stedman's Narrative went through at least 18 editions in five languages, and is often credited with influencing Europe's abolition of slavery. According to VS Naipaul, in The Middle Passage, Stedman's 'nauseous catalogue of atrocities resembles accounts of German concentration camps during the last war.' Today, however, the books influence has been given over to the engravings of slave conditions made by Stedman's friend, William Blake. 'Within [Blake’s] sixteen engravings are some of the most terrifying images that would ever come before the eyes of the British public. Some of them have permanently lodged themselves in the collective consciousness, showing up in today’s academic marketplace with assertive rapidity, as book covers, illustrations, and exhibits in scholarly arguments. “Europe Supported by Africa & America”, which has been reproduced more than almost any other image from the romantic period, has ensured that slavery remains as intimate as a glance' (Debbie Lee, Slavery in the Romantic Imagination, University of Pennsylvania Press, 2002, p. 66). Second edition, second issue (identical to 1806 edition but with a re-dated title page). All the plates and maps have full, original handcolor. Probably a large-paper copy, with leaves measuring 9 by 11 inches (these dimensions match the last two handcolored copies sold at auction. According to Richard and Sally Price, editors of the 1992 critical edition, tedman's Suriname, the large-paper copies were the only ones issued with handcoloring. The binding on this copy is a rather pedestrian 20th century half blue-green cloth over gray paper boards; with leather spine labels, possibly original.

      New York, 1813. Light fold lines. Minor edge wear and foxing. Expertly matted, and protected with mylar sheet. A broadside announcement advertising Luther Gale's purchase of Cornelius Tobey's patent for an improved bark mill. The bark was used by tanners and so was vital to the leather industry. Tobey's patent had been granted by James Madison as president. It was Madison, along with Charles Pinckney, who introduced the first U.S. patent law during the 1787 Constitutional Convention. The broadside is decorated with a woodcut of the Great Seal of the United States. OCLC locates only microfilm copies, though Rink locates one copy, at Eleutherian Mills.

        AN INTERESTING ACCOUNT OF THE VOYAGES AND TRAVELS OF CAPTAINS LEWIS AND CLARKE [sic], IN THE YEARS 1804-5 & 6 GIVING A FAITHFUL DESCRIPTION OF THE RIVER MISSOURI AND ITS SOURCE

      Baltimore, 1813. Modern half calf and marbled boards, leather label. Tanning and foxing throughout. Some minor paper loss (repaired) to three of the four plates. Still, about very good. In a half calf clamshell box, leather label. A slightly later printing of the so-called "Apocrypha edition" of Lewis and Clark, bearing the name of compiler William Fisher on the titlepage. In response to the growing curiosity of the public regarding the findings of Lewis and Clark, and the delay in publication of the "authorized account" of their expedition, this compilation of bits and pieces from already published works appeared (culled from Gass, Clark, Mackenzie, Carver, and Jefferson's MESSAGE... of 1806), misleading the reader into believing it was the account sanctioned by the government and containing all the information gathered during the journey. Howes calls this the "spurious" edition, while Sabin states it contains material not published in any other edition.

        Northern Campaigns,

      London: Patrick Martin and Co... and J. Ballantyne and Co. Edinburgh; and J. Cumming, Dublin,, 1813. from the Commencement of the War in 1812, to the Armistice Signed and Ratified June 4, 1813; with an Appendix, containing all the Bulletins issued by the French Ruler during this Contest. 2 volumes, octavo. Original drab brown paper spines with labels, blue-grey covers, uncut. Engraved portrait frontispieces of Napoleon (by Cook after Toffanelli) and Tsar Alexander I (by Charles Heath after Kugelgen), 5 coloured engraved folding maps (seat of war in Russia, seat of war in northern Poland and Prussia, 3 campaign maps). A couple of joints split but sound. a few nicks and marks to bindings. An excellent set in the original boards, as issued. First edition, uncommon, of one of the chief works of the military writer John Philippart (c.1784 - 1875), "a prolific compiler of pamphlets and books of reference relating to the British army" (ODNB). This copy has an attractive Napoleonic era provenance: with the bookplates of Thomas Buchanan, Powis House (Perthshire). Buchanan (d. 1842), was a captain in the East India Company (commanding the company ship Perseverance) and Superintendent of the Bombay Marine (later the Royal Indian Navy), who married Catherine, youngest daughter of Sir Ralph Abercromby ("a popular, well-known commander who became something of a father figure within the British army" ODNB). Each copy is inscribed on the front free endpaper: "Thomas Buchanan Island of Bombay [present day Mumbai], care of John Fraser Esq., No. 50 Lothbury London". Fraser was an Official Assignee based in the City of London, in other words he was an officer in the law court who distributed a bankrupt's assets to the creditors; but who may also assist the bankrupt to relieve of his obligations to the creditors. This may relate to the fact that in December 1827 Buchanan was removed from his office as Superintendent of the Bombay Marine, as that post was to come under the direct control of the Royal Navy, and a pension of £800 per annum was granted by the East India Company.

        Autograph letter signed in full to Hugo Balzer

      - "Along with his teacher Arnold Schoenberg and fellow pupil Anton Webern in the years before and immediately after World War I, [Berg] moved away from tonality to write free atonal and then 12-note music. At once a modernist and a Romantic, a formalist and a sensualist, he produced one of the richest bodies of music in the 20th century, and in opera, especially, he had few equals." Douglas Jarman in Grove onlineThe present letter was part of Berg's campaign to have his opera Wozzeck staged in Darmstadt, then capital of the German state of Hesse and hometown of Georg Büchner (1813-1837), author of the play the opera is based. Berg's campaign was successful: the opera was produced in Darmstadt in 1931.It was not, however, conducted by Hugo Balzer (1894-1987), who at the time was music director at the opera in Freiburg, but by Karl Böhm (1894-1981). Balzer is also noted as the founder of the Robert-Schumann-Konservatorium in Düsseldorf in 1935. 2 pp. Octavo. Dated June 10, 1931. With Berg's handstamp in blue-black ink to upper left corner: "Alban Berg / Gut Berghof / post: Sattendorf / am Ossiacher-See / Kärnten, Austria / Tel. Villach [1]395"). Together with autograph envelope addressed to Balzer at the Stadttheater in Freiburg with Berg's handstamp to verso with his address on Trauttmausdorffgasse 27 in Vienna. In German (with translation). Berg thanks Balzer for a long- delayed letter and tells him that he has also written to [Ferdinand] Kirnberger, the Finance Minister of the state of Hesse. He expresses his hope for Balzer's appointment as music director in Darmstadt."Your kind letter reached me in a roundabout way. You probably have my letter of June 5 by now. In the same mail I wrote to Fin[ance] Min[ister] Kirnberger. Hopefully success! . Please keep me in the loop."Creased at central fold and very slightly at margins; upper right corner of envelope lacking where stamp has been removed; Berg's name in another hand to address panel.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM GEORGE K. TAYLOR TO BUSHROD WASHINGTON, CONCERNING A DISPUTE WITH THE GUARDIAN OF WASHINGTON'S BROTHER'S CHILDREN OVER THE DISPOSITION OF A PIECE OF LAND]

      Petersburg, 1813. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Minor wear and soiling. Very good. Part of the ongoing settlement of George Washington's estate, of which his favorite nephew, Bushrod Washington, was executor. At this time Bushrod Washington was a sitting justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, having been appointed in 1798. Taylor writes to him offering his services as counsel. A prominent Virginia jurist, George K. Taylor (1769-1815) attended the College of William & Mary, entered private practice in 1795, and served in the Virginia House of Delegates from 1795 until 1801, when he was appointed U.S. Circuit Judge for the 4th Circuit. Almost certainly it was Taylor rather than Henry Lee who co-authored the Federalist Minority Report with John Marshall on the Alien and Sedition Acts in the Virginia House of Delegates in 1799. According to the "Commissioner's Report on the Estate of George Washington, 1 July 1811," Bushrod Washington sold land from his uncle's estate to "the late Col. Thomas Lee," guardian of the children of his late brother, Corbin Washington, for the sum of $15,125, "which purchase their present guardian did not think himself at liberty to confirm." In the absence of payment, Bushrod Washington, believing himself the rightful owner, apparently intended to sell the land or had already done so. Taylor expresses here that he think that the court will order the profits to be turned over to Col. Lee's successor, against whom Washington had filed suit, but that Washington will be allowed to retain the full amount of the original selling price. Taylor apologizes for being so slow to reply and agrees to represent Washington if he has not already retained the services of someone else. "I have no doubt the chancellor will grant an argument in your behalf." However, he also has no doubt that "you must experience in court the usual treatment of trustees acting lawfully and bona fide; and that consequently while we will be liable for the net profits of the land...it would be an outrage on all the principles hitherto entertained by the courts of equity, to subject you to anything more." While attending the circuit court of appeals, Taylor anticipates he will have "ample leisure" to review the case.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM JOHN ADAMS TO MERCY OTIS WARREN]

      Quincy [Ma.], 1813. Quarto. Old fold lines. A few small spots of foxing, faint stain from wax seal. Very good. In a folio-sized half morocco and cloth clamshell box, leather labels. A warm letter from former President John Adams to his dear friend and writer, Mercy Otis Warren, with whom he had been recently reconciled after their long falling out. Throughout the Revolutionary period, historian, poet, and dramatist Mercy Otis Warren actively corresponded on political matters with numerous leaders, including Samuel Adams, John Hancock, Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and especially John Adams, who became her literary mentor in those early years of unrest. In 1805 her literary career culminated with the publication of THE HISTORY OF THE RISE, PROGRESS, AND TERMINATION OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. The book's sharp criticisms of Adams - that his passions and prejudices often debilitated his judgment and that he had demonstrated a distinct leaning toward monarchy during his sojourn in England - led to a heated correspondence and a breach in their friendship in 1807. After nearly five years Elbridge Gerry managed to effect a reconciliation between Mercy and Abigail and John. It was Mrs. Adams who sent word to Mercy on Sept. 15, 1813 that her daughter, Nabby, had died of breast cancer a month earlier. Adams' opening salutation in this letter likely refers to condolences sent by Warren, and suggests that Nabby's death prompted an invitation to visit her: "I am very much obliged to you for your civilities to my wife, my son, Coll Smith and my granddaughters. My girls have long expressed an earnest desire to see Madam Warren, and have been highly gratified by their visit and very grateful for the kind hospitality, the social enjoyments and instructive conversations they experienced. I congratulate you Madam on the happy marriage of a granddaughter who once obliged us with a very short visit. I was delighted with her manners and accomplishments, and found her visit much too short. May every blessing attend her and all your family, in whose prosperity I take a constant interest." Adams moves beyond the opening exchange of family pleasantries to discuss Thomas McKean's comments on Mrs. Warren's late brother, the brilliant but erratic James Otis, Jr., at the 1765 Stamp Act Congress. "Governor M.Keans notice of your brother I thought worth preserving in your family. The oddity of the dialogue and the particular moment of its composition were the circumstances that made it rather an object of curiosity than use. I think however the traits of character are correct." In a letter from McKean to Adams dated Aug. 20, 1813, McKean reminisces about the Stamp Act Congress that convened in New York on Oct. 7 to elect a president of that body: "In the Congress of 1765, there were several conspicuous characters. Mr. James Otis appeared to be the boldest and best speaker. I voted for him as our President, but Brigadier Ruggles succeeded by one vote, owing to the number of the committee from New York, as we voted individually" (THE WORKS OF JOHN ADAMS, X, pp.60-62). Adams then moves on to further reflection on the rest of her family of ardent patriots: "I know not madam what your father [James Otis, Sr.], your husband [James Warren] or your brother would think of these times." Adams, however, is reluctant to conjecture about what the future might hold for America. "A mighty effort of nature is in operation that no understanding below that Providence which superintends and directs it, can comprehend. An entire separation, in government at least, between America and Europe seems to be commencing: but what will be its course when and how it will terminate; and what influence it will have upon Asia and Africa, no living man, I believe will pretend to foresee." Nevertheless, Adams believes that he, Mercy, and their fellow patriots had long since laid the necessary groundwork for the political sanguinity of America, but whose fate no longer lay in their hands, due to advanced age. "We have acted our parts. The curtain will soon be drawn upon us. We must leave the future to that Providence which has protected us in the past. This sentiment of duty and interest I doubt not, Madam, will be approved by you; as I hope it is reallized [sic] with gratitude, and entire confidence and submission by your old friend and respectful humble servant." A cordial letter to an old friend, showing a more mature and philosophical John Adams. Warren was eighty-five at the time - she was older than Adams - and she died less than a year later.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM GEN. JACOB BROWN TO JOSHUA HATHEWAY IN ROME, NEW YORK, DESCRIBING THE ATTACK ON SACKETS HARBOR]

      Sackets Harbor, N.Y., 1813. Folio. Old fold lines. Some separation at folds; one tear closed with archival tape. Lightly soiled. Good. An eyewitness account of the second battle of Sackets Harbor, on the shores of Lake Ontario, written by the commander of the American forces there, Gen. Jacob Brown, to his friend, Joshua Hatheway, quartermaster general and formerly the commander of the defenses at Sackets Harbor. The town, situated near the entrance to the St. Lawrence River at the far eastern end of Lake Ontario and opposite the Canadian town of Kingston, was a vital defensive point for the Americans, challenging British control of the St. Lawrence and the lake, and preventing a British thrust into New York State. If either side could control both sides of the entrance to the St. Lawrence, they could control the Upper Great Lakes. Taking advantage of the American action against York, which drew troops away to the western end of the Lake, the British decided to strike. On May 28, 1813 the British Great Lakes squadron under the command of James Yeo appeared off Sackets Harbor, carrying troops under the command of the governor-general, Lieut. Gen. George Prevost. Having been forewarned by several men who escaped the Battle of Henderson Bay the previous day, the Americans had some time to reinforce their defenses before the British could attack. The British landed on the 28th but launched their main attack the next morning. They easily routed the American militia, but the regulars under Brown were able to fight off repeated attacks on their fortifications. Prevost, fearing the arrival of more American troops, ordered a retreat which nearly became a rout. Brown was the hero of the day and was later rewarded with a commission as brigadier general. He must have immediately written this letter describing the action: "Dr. Sir, I received an order some days since from Genl Dearborn to take comm. at this Post. Comd. Chauncey is up the lake. We were this morning attacked as day dawned by Sir George Prevost in person who made good his landing with at least a thousand picked men. Sir James Yeo commanded the fleet after loosing some distinguished officers and of course some gallant men. Our loss is very severe as to the quality of those who have fallen. The enemy left many of their wounded on the Field - but I have no doubt carried off many more. We shall probably be again attacked as Sir George must feel very sore. All I can say is, whatever may be the result we will not be disgraced." A superb battlefield letter reporting on one of the most significant military actions of the War of 1812.

        A MILITARY AND TOPOGRAPHICAL ATLAS OF THE UNITED STATES; INCLUDING THE BRITISH POSSESSIONS & FLORIDA

      Philadelphia, 1813. Contemporary three-quarter calf and marbled boards, gilt. Minor edge wear, boards rubbed, remnants of string ties. Mild tanning to text, some expert repairs to maps along folds. A handsome copy in very good to near fine condition, certainly one of the best copies we have seen. In a cloth slipcase. This superb and very rare American atlas contains maps by H.S. Tanner and was prepared for the War of 1812. The five maps are: "Seat of War in North America"; "...the Southern Section of the United States including the Floridas & Bahama Islands Shewing the Seat of War..."; "Detroit"; "...the American coast from Lynhaven Bay to Narraganset Bay"; and "...Quebec and Adjacent Country...." The text which accompanies the maps includes interesting commentary on why the maps are pertinent, where the cartographic information came from, and other useful information. The Siebert copy fetched $12,650 in 1999 (the present copy is in superior condition).
