        Signed by Andrew Jackson during his illustrious service during the War of 1812

      "Manuscript Document Signed, ""Andrew Jackson,"" 1 page, 7.75"" x 6.5"", [Near Natchez], March 19, 1813, acknowledging a Provision return ""for Captain Kavanaugh"". Additionally signed by Capt. Charles Kavanaugh (""C. Kavanaugh Capt. Of Cavalry""). Light creases, light toning, else very good condition with a fine, dark, and early example of Jackson's signature. Jackson endorses a return for rations issued to Kavanaugh's company of cavalry from the 1st to the 12th of March, 1813. Jackson had led an expedition down the Mississippi to Natchez with orders to reinforce New Orleans in the event of a British attack. However, when Jackson arrived there, he received word from General Wilkinson, to proceed no further, as there were not adequate quarters for Jackson's volunteers there. In late March, Jackson received word from the War Department dismissing Jackson and his army from further service. However, no provision was made for the army's return to Tennessee. During the hard, overland journey, Jackson's fortitude and leadership earned him the nickname: ""Old Hickory."" Nearly two years later, Jackson would return to New Orleans, where he would be immortalized for his heroic performance defeating the British attack on that city. Charles Kavanaugh served as a Captain in Col. John Coffee's Tennessee Volunteer Cavalry which joined Jackson's force in early 1813 with a strength of approximately 600 men. After rendezvousing near Franklin, Tennessee, the regiment marched overland to Natchez in mid-January 1813. Many members of this regiment became part of a unit by Colonels Alcorn and Dyer during Jackson's first campaign against the Creeks in the fall of 1813. Kavanaugh later served with Jackson at the Battle of New Orleans. "

        Manuscript Account Book Dunbarton, Merrimack County New Hampshire 1813 -1829]

      - folio, 218 pages, plus 27 page alphabetical name index, contemporary sheep, binding worn, boards detached, but present, entries kept in a clear meticulous hand, good condition. The accounts of David Tenny, a private money lender, for monies loaned, notes, interest collected, accounts settled, etc. The approximately 250 accounts, represent loans to virtually everyone in Dunbarton and the surrounding area, leading citizens, minister, widows, a bank and other businesses. There are entries for loans to the Dunbarton Stage Company and the Concord Bank. Tenny in addition was postmaster of Dunbarton, elected in 1812 but was removed from this position during the sweeping "Jackson and Reform" movement that took place in 1829, Tenny apparently was an old Federalist. Dunbarton is situated in the extreme southwestern part of Merrimack County, but previous to the incorporation of Merrimack County, in 1852, it formed part of Hillsborough County. It was was a farming town, with a saw-mill built in 1765, as a result many of the loans are for small sums, due no doubt to the farmer's lack of specie depending on the season.

        Letters written in a Mahratta Camp during the Year 1809,

      London: John Murray,, 1813. descriptive of the Character, Manners, Domestic Habits, Quarto (252 × 202 mm) Recent half diced calf, marbled boards, by Trevor Lloyd, title gilt to spine, double-bands, wavy line roll gilt to the bands, and a greek key in blind between, attractive foliate tool to the first, third and fifth compartments, double gilt fillet to the spine and corner edges. Hand-coloured aquatint frontispiece and 9 other similar plates, half-title and directions to the binder bound in. Couple of short, professional repairs to the half-title and title, light browning throughout, and some foxing to the plates as usual, but overall a very good and attractively-presented copy. First edition. Edited from a sequence of "thirty-two letters to his brother … filled with his observations of the Marathas while serving as commander of the British Resident's escort … in Broughton's narrative the Marathas move through a portion of the Rajputana despoiling the countryside, laying siege to forts and burning villages, and fighting amongst themselves much to the dismay and disgust of the author. Of more interest to Broughton, however, were the various festivals and religious ceremonies, both Hindu and Mohammedan, which he recorded in his letters with detail and sympathy" (Riddick). Broughton (1778-1835) was educated at Eton, commissioned Ensign in 1796 and posted to the Bengal Army the following year; "having chosen the profession of arms he followed it with ardour, and whilst yet a subaltern was actively engaged in the memorable siege of Seringapatam, which the 4th of May 1799, overthrew the dynasty of Tippoo Saib, and conquered his empire. He was afterwards appointed Commandant of the Cadet Corps, a sort of college formed to receive the cadets, and teach and discipline them on their first arrival in the country, an office obviously requiring sound judgement and discreet management" (The Annual Biography and Obituary for the Year 1836, p.441). He was then appointed Military Resident to the Mahrattas, and was subsequently briefly commander of Java. In 1797, he was promoted to lieutenant, transferring to the Madras establishment, captain 1805, major in 1816, lieutenant-colonel in 1822, and colonel in 1829, after which he returned to England. He was made Honorary Secretary of the Royal Asiatic Society, was "an active manager of the Mendicity Society and of the Marylebone schools" (ODNB), and pursued the life of a "literary man" (Annual Biography), publishing Edward and Laura, a "free translation of a French novel written by a warm admirer of Rousseau"; some "interesting and often beautiful Persian poetry, and also some specimens of Hindu poetry", and the present epistolary account a "very valuable work … written during his residence with these extraordinary people, in which he has thrown much light on their personal and curious history" (p.442). His health undermined by his time in India, he died aged 57 in 1835. Another point of interest is that this is "The only British book on India to be illustrated entirely after drawings by an Indian artist, 'Deen Alee', whose 'Company' style can still be discerned through the embellishments of the English etcher, T. Baxter" (R.W. Lightbown in Archer & Lightbown, India observed, p.111), a minor cavil being that the first and last plates are in fact after James Atkinson, who also etched three of the plates. Reimposed armorial bookplate of John Cave-Brown author of Indian infanticide: its Origin, Progress, and Suppression (1857), and The Punjab and Delhi in 1857 (1861).

        Historical Sketch of Moscow:

      London: R. Ackermann,, 1813. illustrated by twelve views of different parts of that imperial city, the Kremlin, etc. Quarto (360 × 295 mm). Skilfully rebound to style in calf-backed onionskin paper boards, vellum tips, spine compartments decorated in gilt and with longitudinal red morocco label, original printed paper label pasted on front board, edges untrimmed. 12 hand-coloured aquatints on Whatman wove paper watermarked 1812. A little minor spotting and toning, but a very good copy, retaining several uncut edges. First edition, a fine copy with picturesque hand-coloured plates, showing landmarks like the Great Square and the Kremlin, but also rarer views like the Petrovskiy Palace and the Old Wood Theatre. Some plates include scenes of everyday life, like the "View of the Ice Hills, during the Carnival, at Moscow". The work was published the year after Napoleon's disastrous retreat from Moscow at a time when public interest was aroused by Russia, its historical capital and people; the 27-page introduction sarcastically applauds Napoleon for his soldier-like conduct and magnanimity. The book was offered for sale in both coloured and uncoloured state; coloured copies are naturally greatly preferred in the market.

The Englishman sits on a bench, his right leg sprawling on the top of a cask which serves as table, his left arm round the waist of the Dutchman who stands beside him with a paper inscribed 'Paris Imperial Decree Napol[eon]' under his foot; the latter's right knee is raised high in the act of trampling. The Englishman holds up a foaming tankard of 'Brown Stout', the Dutchman holds up a tobacco-pipe in his right hand, a bottle of 'Hollands' in the left …Behind them are their respective flags, leaning towards each other: red ensign and the striped flag of the Sovereign Prince, inscribed 'Orange Boven 1813' …On the cask are a large loaf, a round Dutch cheese with a slice out of it, tobacco-box, pipe, glass, and knife. On the ground is a collection of documents which has been set on fire: a large ledger inscribed 'Continental System' and papers: 'Confederation of the Rhine', 'Napo[leon]' … Above the two flags floats a ribbon inscribed in large letters: 'Eendragt maakt Magt' and below 'Concord makes Power'" (George - of Political and Personal Satires in the British Museum). The BM copy is in full, bright colour, this copy is rather more subtly coloured in orange and pale blue/grey.

        Ob man die alte Hoffnung aufgeben sollte, den Stein aus der Blase auf mechanische oder chemische Weise einst noch wegschaffen zu können (pp.289-303; 305-318; 321-331, 1 gefalt. Tafel mit 7 Fig.).

      - Med.-chir. Ztg., 1813/1. - Salzburg, Mayr'schen Buchdruckerey, 1813, 8°, 432 pp., 1 gestochene Tafel, feiner Pappband der Zeit, mit roten Rüchenschild. First Edition of the first scientific treatise on the transurethral destruction and extraction of bladder stones without any incision being made! - - It was at this time, in the early nineteenth century, that there was much controversy about whether a straight sound or tube could be passed through the male urethra. A Bavarian physician, Dr. Gruithuisen (1774-1852), settled this question, and at the same time devised the first model of a possibly workable lithotrite for the destruction of bladder stones. - - His scientific work on the treatment of bladder stones Gruithuisen's most important work in urology was his memoir published in the Medicinisch-Chirurgische Zeitung (Journal of Medicine and Surgery) of Salzburg. It appeared on 4 March 1813 with the very significant title ''Should one abandon the long-standing hope of one day being able to remove stones in the bladder by mechanical or chemical means?'' (''Ob man die alte Hoffnung aufgeben sollte, den Stein aus der Blase auf mechanische oder chemische Weise einst noch wegschaffen zu können?''). - - Only after many years of experimenting on animals, cadavers, and, partly on himself, Dr. Gruithuisen decided to present his instruments and publish his results. - The first practical attempts to remove a bladder stone by a transurethral method may be credited to Gruithuisen, who in 1813 published a description and illustration of the instrument he had devised. He distinguished between six possible treatments of bladder stones: by perineal incision (lithotomy), by washing the bladder with water, by crushing the stone (mechanical), by dissolving it with chemicals, by galvanic pulverisation, and by combining the mechanical and chemical methods. The last procedure seemed the best to him. - In 1813 Gruithuisen tested the method by passing a straight tube into a bladder. He demonstrated that a large straight tube could be passed into the bladder and he tried to secure the stone by a loop of wire before perforating it with a trephine driven by a drill bow. - His mechanical instrument consisted of a tube with awire loop, which, when placed in the bladder, would hold the stone in place against the tube for drilling or injection. The wires passed through holes in the wall of the tube into the interior and out at the external end, so that the operator holding the wire ends could keep the stone against the tube. A drill turned by the fingers or a small injection tube could be passed through the first tube. His original idea was to examine the stones, and according to the chemical analysis of the stones use an appropriate dissolving chemical solution. But no satisfactory solution could be found in vivo. - Then Gruithuisen invented an instrument consisting of a strong metal rod, having at one end two diverging branches, which were sharp along the opposing edges, like the blades of a pair of scissors. This rod was drawn into an external straight hollow tube, which determined the approach of the diverging blades to each other. The stone was thus cut, and also tended to be crushed. - Gruithuisen found that a conductor with a thick and straight shaft and a round tip facilitated its introduction and reduced the danger of injuring the urethra. In addition, the straight shaft with a thick lumen permitted other working instruments to be introduced into the bladder after the mandrin had been removed, as in the case of modern-day instruments. He used chicken-egg white as a natural lubricant. - Gruithuisen also suggested the use of an electric current to destroy stones in the bladder after the introduction of the instruments. His source of electric power was a voltaic pile, consisting of platinum discs separated by silk covered with ''gum lac''. The electric current was to be delivered to the stone by two platinum wires carried into the bladder . [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Size: 32mo - over 4" - 5" tall, Printed by B McMillan, Bow Street, Covent Garden in colophon.

Godwin published it, the first work of his prodigious child. Later research suggests a more likely author is John Taylor with the story outline being supplied by Mary. He was the author of 'Monsieur Tonson', which was also published by M J Godwin as another Juvenile Library title.

      [Np, but likely New York]. April 1813.. Broadside, 8 x 6 1/2 inches. Minimal soiling. Near fine. Signed in print by "a Republican of '93" and printed less than ten months after the start of the War of 1812, this circular is addressed to John Nicholas. It begins: "As John Nicholas, Esquire, has been so obliging as to favor the Republican party in this county with his own undivided assistance and direction, and has very modestly added a tolerable long biographical account of himself to his other laconic morsels, I feel anxious that he should superadd to his former hard labors, unequivocal Answers to a few pertinent Questions." Six acerbically pointed queries follow concerning John Nicholas' actions on the subjects of DeWitt Clinton (lieutenant governor of New York and the Federalist Party's presidential nominee in 1812); a whiskey tax of "25 Cents on the gallon"; and the Quid Council. It closes by asking, "Pray, Mr. Nicholas, were you born in the state of New- York?"

      Washington City: W. Cooper, [1813].. Broadside, 21 1/2 x 8 1/4 inches. Minor soiling and wear. Contemporary manuscript corrections. Very good. The Washington Theatre was the second theatre in early Washington. The first was the National Theatre, originally formed by Thomas Wignell and Alexander Reinagle with the company from Philadelphia's Chestnut Street Theatre. The National Theatre opened in 1800 in an unfinished hotel. Within three years money was raised for a second, more permanent theatre, which would be suitable to entertain Jefferson, Madison, and other important personages in the new capital. On Nov. 16, 1804 the Washington Theatre opened its doors on Pennsylvania Avenue. The first season completed Dec. 17, 1804, and the theatre did not reopen its doors until the following autumn. In 1808 the Wignell company began regular summer seasons, which had the benefit of getting the company out of Philadelphia during the yellow fever season, as well as providing uninterrupted practice for the cast and crew. The season of 1808 began on September 7 and lasted a mere nine nights; the season for 1809 ran from June 13 to August 7. Closed in 1810 due to lack of success, the theatre was advertised for sale June of 1811. It failed to sell, and the company reopened for a summer season later that month. They managed to stay open for the next several summer seasons, despite war with Britain and a terrible theatre fire in Richmond in December 1812 which killed eighty people and caused a country-wide anti-theatre crusade. By 1813, when this broadside was printed, the War of 1812 was raging. This copy is particularly notable for its contemporary annotations, with fourteen cast and scene changes marked. If these are taken as last-minute changes, the annotations provide a great deal of information about the actual performance of September 6, as well as the dramatic exegesis caused by losing, for example, the singer Mrs. Green, which caused the song "Bright Chanticleer" to be entirely cancelled. An extensive description is given of the pantomime of "Hercules & Omphale," choreographed by James Byrn. Byrn created a number of ballets in America, some of which he later staged in London. The playbill also indicates that the epilogue to "School of Reform" was spoken by the English actress Mrs. Mason, a brilliant comedienne of the times. Aside from a unique playbill at Harvard, this is the earliest surviving broadside of a Washington, D.C. theatre; the next nearest is 1816. Unique and interesting.

The document once had a seal attached, but was cut from the document, and this affects a few words., WELLESLEY, Henry 1st Baron Cowley (1773-1847)In 1809, Henry Wellesley became the British envoy to Spain - his eldest brother, by now Marquess Wellesley, was now Foreign Secretary, while his brother Arthur (now Viscount Wellington) was British commander-in-chief in Spain. Together, the three brothers helped to make the Peninsular campaign a success, and in 1812 Wellesley was knighted. He also was noted for recruiting Spanish soldiers for the War of 1812, a little known fact. [Attributes: First Edition]

      The first and only publication of {i The Skottowe Manuscript} since its creation in 1813. This full colour-facsimile and study of the famous manuscript in the Mitchell Library won the prestigious Galley Club of Sydney Award for Excellence. The Skottowe Manuscript. Two volumes, 80 & 112 pp., large octavo format (310 x 195 mm.), with 27 full-page watercolours and 26 pages of manuscript in colour-facsimile; printed on high quality gloss art paper, bound in fine cloth; slipcase.{b Celebrated as the best designed, illustrated adult book in the Australian Book Publishers Association Design Awards, {i The Skottowe Manuscript} is a rare and valuable collector's piece. It is also a remarkable natural history of New South Wales. David Attenborough writes in his foreword that the book's beauty lies in its representation of '…a land full of marvels seen with wonder and innocence'.}This is the first and only publication of {i The Skottowe Manuscript} since its creation one hundred and seventy-five years ago. In 1813, Thomas Skottowe, an early colonial official, and convict artist Richard Browne compiled a remarkable record of the birds, animals, insects, reptiles, and fish of the New South Wales region, comprising 27 watercolours and 26 pages of hand-written copper-plate text. For each illustration in Volume I, Skottowe records his own excited comments and the native name for the subject, making {i The Skottowe Manuscript }a delight to read as well as admire. To place the work in its historical context, author and historian Tim Bonyhady writes knowledgeably about the content of the manuscript in Volume II.
