        The metamorphosis of Ajax; a cloacinean satire: With the Anatomy and apology ... To which is added, Ulysses upon Ajax.

      C. Whittingham, 1814. Whittingham printing of this 1596 Rabelaisian satire, in which Sir John Harington describes inventing a flush toilet, resulting in much scatalogical humor as well as sly allusions to members of and events in Queen Elizabeth's court. The work was a mild scandal in its day and earned the wrath of the queen, although only temporarily -- Harington, one of her godsons, fell in and out of favor with her several times before her death. The volume, which includes Harington's two follow-ups to the original piece, features => a fine array of appurtenances including an engraved frontispiece portrait of the author, a song with sheet music provided ("O tu qui dans oracula"), a reproduction of the original woodcut illustration of a devil appearing to an aged man in the midst of doing his business, diagrams of the new privy both in parts and assembled, etc. Each section has a facsimile title-page based on originals of 1596. => Edition of only 100 copies. Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.

        Christna Lärans förkunnande af Ansgarius. [Och:] Olof Skötkonungs dop vid Husaby källa.

      Två teckningar i bläck på tunt brunt papper. Båda signerade och daterade: »Westin 1814». 30 × 24 resp. 39 × 28,8 cm. Den sistnämnda bilden lagad i marginalen med obetydlig inverkan på den tecknade ramlinjen. Proveniens: Westins kusin, konstnärskollegan Olof Johan Södermark (1790-1848), därefter i arv. Litteratur: Bo Vahlne, Nyinredningen av Rosersbergs slott 1797-1818 (1988), s. 226-27 (jfr illustr.). En av bilderna (Christna Lärans förkunnande af Ansgarius) i ny ram, förgylld med bladguld. Syrafri passepartout. Den andra oinramad. Teckningar till kormålningar för Rosersbergs slottskapell i samband med Karl XIII:s nyinredning av slottet 1797-1818. Väggmålningarna blev aldrig utförda men var tänkta att placeras över två igensatta sidofönster. Dessa teckningar utgör två olika alternativ för det ena fältet; under planeringen byttes nämligen Ansgarsbilden ut mot Olof Skötkonungs dop vid Husaby källa. Det andra fältet skulle föreställa Protestantiska Evangeliska Lutherska lärans antagande under Konung Gustaf I:s regering. Förklaringen till förändringen är troligen att Karl XIII önskade att två företrädare i den svenska regentlängden skulle spegla hans egna insatser för den andliga förnyelsen i landet (Vahlne s. 227). Att målningarna inte kom till utförande berodde antagligen på att Westin inte hann leverera dem till Karl XIII i tid, och att beställningen inte förnyades av den nye slottsherren, Karl XIV Johan. I Nationalmuseum resp. privat ägo har två teckningar till de slutligt valda motiven bevarats. De avbildas av Vahlne på s. 226-27 och kan vara de som ställdes ut på Konstakademien i Stockholm 1816. Föreliggande teckning av Olof Skötkonungs dop är uppenbarligen kalkerad på bilden som återges av Vahlne, men Ansgarsteckningen kan möjligen vara unik. På Rosersberg utförde hovmålaren Westin bl. a. Dagens stunder, fyra dörröverstycken med antikiserande figurer i Stora sängkammaren (1812-13).

        "Gentlemen, My addressing a number of young men whom I meet but once a year, & most of whom it is probable I shall never meet again; I am necessarily restricted to a few general topicks ... At present it is my Intention to give you some general observations upon the choice of a medical Library ... " [incipit]

      [New York, 1814. Autograph manuscript, 25 pp. pen and ink on paper, with manuscript corrections and deletions. 8vo (10-1/4 x 8 inches). Sewn self-wrappers in two separated gatherings. Moderate wear, 2-inch tear to lower portion of last 6 leaves, affecting text. In a custom green half morocco slipcase and chemise. Autograph manuscript, 25 pp. pen and ink on paper, with manuscript corrections and deletions. 8vo (10-1/4 x 8 inches). Original manuscript commencement speech on the topic of the formation of a medical library, delivered to graduates of Columbia's College of Physicians and Surgeons by the influential early American physician, Samuel Bard (1742-1821), founder of the King's College (Colombia) Medical School, the New York Hospital, and longtime president of Columbia's College of Physicians and Surgeons. Bard was raised in New York City, received his medical degree in Edinburgh, and went into practice with his father, also a physician, in 1765. "Interested in improving the education of American physicians since his student days at Edinburgh and impressed by what fellow student John Morgan had achieved in Philadelphia (founding the first medical school in America at what is now the University of Pennsylvania), Bard and several other physicians founded in 1767 New York's first medical school - the country's second - at King's College" (ANB). In 1769 Bard delivered the school's first commencement address, published that year as "A Discourse Upon the Duties of a Physician, With Some Sentiments on the Usefulness and Necessity of Publick Hospital." The speech so impressed the city's leaders that a thousand pounds was pledged to form a new hospital, and a charter from King George III in 1771 created the New York Hospital. Bard's practice suffered some during the Revolution because of his early Loyalist sympathies and he lost his position at King's College, which closed the medical school during the war. He soon regained his prominent status and became the leading physician in New York City. "Bard was beloved by his patients and highly esteemed by his colleagues as a practitioner. According to one of his memorialists, Henry William Ducachet, it "was unfashionable to be sick without being visited by Dr. Bard" (ANB). After the war, when the capitol of the new nation was located in New York City, Bard served as private doctor to George Washington, who credited Bard with saving his life after successfully removing a carbuncle from his thigh. In 1785 Bard was appointed trustee and dean of Columbia College, which had reopened its medical school. In 1814 the medical school merged with the College of Physicians and Surgeons and Bard was appointed its first president, a position he held until his death. Bard's published works include his 1769 King's College commencement address, a pioneering work on diphtheria (An Enquiry into the Nature, Cause and Cure, of the Angina Suffocativa, or, Sore Throat Distemper, 1771) and the first American textbook on obstetrics (A Compendium of the Theory and Practice of Midwifery, 1807), which remained the standard work in the field for American doctors for decades.

Originale Lieferumschläge in Fadenheftung mit gestochenem kalligrafischem Titel sowie floralem Linien- und Rahmenwerk. Umfangreiches Konvolut von 18 der 24 Hefte mit 180 der 240 „schwarzen", von Joseph Seher nach dekorativen Zeichnungen gestochenen Kupfertafeln des unter Herausgeberschaft von Leopold Trattinnick (1764-1849), Custos am Wiener Hof-Naturalienkabinett (heute Naturhistorisches Museum), erschienenen, komplett äußerst seltenen botanischen Prachtwerks über Österreichs Flora, hier mit den originalen, mit gestochenen Titeln versehenen Lieferungsumschlägen. Die vorliegenden Hefte 1-18 erschienen von Dezember 1814 bis Ende Jahr 1817 auf Kosten Trattinnicks und wurden über die Wiener Verlagsbuchhandlung Schaumburg vertrieben. Im Anschluß und teils parallel zu seinem ebenfalls zuerst in Lieferungen erschienenen »Archiv für Gewächskunde« (1811-1818, 5. Lief., 250 Taf.) brachte der geschäftstüchtige Botaniker und Fachschriftsteller auch die »Flora des österreichischen Kaiserthums« in der Folge als von ihm selbst vorfinanzierte Buchausgabe heraus, welche 1816 und 1820 in Kommission über den Verlagsbuchhändler Anton Strauß vertrieben wurde, und zunächst 2 Bände mit den Lieferungsheften 1-22 beinhaltend 219 Tafeln nebst 2 gestochenen Porträts umfasste. Ebenso wie im Fall der »Ausgemahlte Tafeln aus dem Archiv der Gewächskunde« (1813-14, 4 Bde., 407 Taf.) konnte dabei auch die »Flora« gegen Subskription mit kolorierten Kupfern bezogen werden, wobei Trattinnick dafür den vierfachen Preis der „schwarzen" Normalausgabe veranschlagte (wie er im Vorwort zu H. 1 berichtet). 1822 folgten als Nachtrag die Hefte 23 und 24, die als 3. Band der »Flora« herauskamen und weitere 21 Tafeln von „Holz-Pflanzen" beinhalteten, so dass sich die Gesamtzahl der Kupfertafeln des Werks auf 240 erhöhte (vgl. Nissen BB 1985; das Tafelverzeichnis (sh. digital. Ex. d. UB Frankfurt/Main) nennt allerdings für die Bde. 1 (111) u. 2 (107) nur 218 statt 219 Tafeln). Im vorliegenden Konvolut fehlen die Lieferungshefte 19-24 mit 60 Tafeln, als da sind 39 Taf., die in Bd. 2 der Buchausgabe mit den Pflanzen Nrn. 126 und 165-200 Eingang gefunden haben (wobei 180 u. 181 jew. 2 Taf. umfassen) und 21 Taf. d. 3 Bandes, sowie die beschreibenden Texte ab Pflanze Nr. 92. Hingegen ist hier eine Tafel vorhanden (H. 9: „Pedicularis versicolor"), die in der gebundenen Ausgabe nicht vorkommt. PROVENIENZ: Zwei datierte und signierte Widmungen Trattinnicks in lateinischer Sprache (mit Bleistift und Tinte, Heft 6, Titelbl. v; Heft 8, Titelbl. r u. v) für Leopold Mark (1765-1816), Kaufmann und Bürgermeister von Klosterneuburg, der Heimatstadt des Herausgebers. Die „Flora des österreichischen Kaiserthums" zählt zu den seltensten von Trattinnicks raren Werken über heimische wie exotische Flora. Das Werk wurde und wird im Handel sehr selten angeboten, auch nicht in einzelnen Heften. Vorliegendes Konvolut ist zudem aufgrund der nahezu unauffindbaren Lieferumschläge und der Widmungen ein Unikat. Laut JAP/APO wurde seit 1950 lediglich ein einziger vollständige Exemplarsatz versteigert, ein zweiter und letzter Auktionseintrag findet sich erst wieder 2005 (koloriertes Ex. d. Bde. 1-2, Hartung & Hartung (Auktion 111, Los 555). Vollständige Exemplarsätze mit allen 3 Bänden haben laut OCLC und KVK weltweit lediglich die UB Wien, die ÖNB (Grafikslg.), die ULB Münster und eine weitere Bibliothek. Heftränder stellenweise eselsohrig; Rücken, insbesondere an den oberen und unteren Enden bestoßen und mit Fehlstellen, Bindung von H. 1 in der Mitte gelöst, die Ränder des Vorderumschlags stellenweise mit Fehlstellen; die auf Maschinbütten abgezogenen Textblätter teils stockfleckig und mit Lichträndern, die auf stärkerem, handgeschöpftem und hellem Bütten mit breitem Rand gedruckten und seitlich sowie unten unbeschnittenen Tafeln dagegen bis auf wenige Stockflecken frisch.

        El Modelo de los Cristianos presentado a los Insurgentes de América,

      Mexico: en la oficina de Ontiveros,, 1814. y una introduccion necesarísima para desengaño de muchos en las actuales circunstancias, en la qual se funda el derecho de la soberania propria del Sr. D. Fernando VII...; [Together with] El Modelo de los Cristianos; Jesus en el Calvario y maria su Madre mirandole. 2 works bound in 1, small square octavo (172 x 113 mm). Publisher's Mexican marbled sheep, flat spine gilt ruled and decorated with gilt fleurons, gilt roll tool border on sides enclosing a broad gilt roll tool panel consisting of pomegranates, foliage and flowers, yellow edges, marbled endpapers. Minor wear to extremities; a lovely copy, wide-margined and crisp. First edition of this political tract, published in the years preceding the Mexican War of Independence, in an unusually excellent and richly decorated Mexican binding. Fernandez de San Salvador (1756–1842), was a writer and lawyer devotedly loyal to the Old Regime and the King of Spain, Ferdinand VII. The first of these two works, El Modelo de Los Cristianos presentado a los Insurgentes de América, warns its readers against revolutionaries, both those in support of Napoleon, and those in support of total independence from Europe. From 1808 to 1813 Spain, and therefore Mexico, had been under Napoleonic rule. Ferdinand VII was reinstated as King on 11 December 1813, however the power of the monarchy had been greatly diminished. This work therefore warns against the calls emerging in the light of this turbulence for total independence from Europe; which included calls made by San Salvador's own niece, Leona Vicario. Vicario, an orphan, who is often described as "the great heroine of Mexican Independence", was under the guardianship of San Salvador when she began her crucial involvement in the independence movement. This rift in their political ideals did not, however, appear to cause great conflict between the two, despite Vicario being imprisoned in March 1813. Vicario soon escaped and joined the rebel army, marring a fellow insurgent, Andrés Quintana Roo, who was coincidentally San Salvador's former law clerk. The second work is a religious treaty which promotes traditional Catholic devotion during times of discord. It includes a subscribers list, which details the distribution of the 800 copies published, and suggests that just 12 copies were bound thus.

        Elements of Political Science. In Three Volumes.

      Edinburgh: James Ballantyne and Co., 1814 - 3 volumes, octavo (210 x 130 mm). Contemporary polished tree calf, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, edges yellow and speckled blue. Armorial bookplates of Edward Strutt to front pastedowns, contemporary gift inscription to front free endpaper of vol. 1. Spines discreetly restored, extremities lightly rubbed, minor offsetting to front free endpaper from bookplates and facing pages from integral cloth markers, faint foxing to contents, an excellent set. First edition of the Scottish author's analysis of government rights and constitutional authority, a gift copy inscribed from the Trustees of Manchester College, York, to Edward Strutt, 1st Baron Belper, "as a Prize for Diligence, Regularity & Proficiency during the Session of 1817-18". Strutt, for whom the title Baron Belper was created in 1856, was a first-year student at York at the time. He later became a liberal politician and served as the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster. "Craig's Elements combines Godwin and Adam Smith, making the impartial spectator as anarchist the theoretical foundation for a comprehensive text-book in the political sciences. It may have been intended for the new professional course which the Professor of Logic, George Jardine, wanted introduced at the Scottish universities. Craig's work was immediately translated into German (Leipzig, 1816) in support of the old-liberal, anti-revolutionary cause" (Haakonssen, p. 156).

        Rußland wie es wirklich ist! Der 17. Jahrestag der Polnischen Revolution. Eine Rede gesprochen in der zu Paris am 29. November 1847 zur Feier dieses Jahrestags gehaltenen Versammlung. Von M. Bakunin, russischem Flüchtling. Ins Deutsche übertragen.

      19,5 x 12,5 cm. 16 Seiten. Flugschrift mit Rückenheftstreifen. *Stammhammer I, 19: Nettlau, S. 42. - Erste Ausgabe, sehr selten. - Michail Alexandrowitsch Bakunin, (1814-1876) war ein russischer Revolutionär und Anarchist. Er gilt als einer der einflussreichsten Denker, Aktivisten und Organisatoren der anarchistischen Bewegung. Ursprünglich entstammte Bakunin einer alten russischen Adelsfamilie, er entzog sich jedoch dem Leben und dem Militär in Russischen Diensten und schlug sich als Mathematiklehrer durch. 1840 kam er nach Berlin und lernte die großen Denker und Philosophen des Vormärz kennen und engagierte sich für den Sozialismus. Nach dem Ausbruch der Februarrevolution 1848 in Frankreich kehrte Bakunin nach Paris zurück und nahm am revolutionären Kampf teil. Als Mitorganisator der Aufstände im Mai 1849 in Dresden wurde er schließlich verhaftet, mehrfach zum Tode verurteilt und schließlich nach Rußland ausgeliefert, wo er zunächst zu lebenslanger Kerkerhaft und 1857 zu lebenslanger Verbannung nach Sibirien verurteilt wurde. Dort gelang ihm 1861 aber die Flucht und er kehrte über Japan und Amerika nach Europa zurück, wo er in England, Schweden und schließlich in der Schweiz weiterhin politisch tätig war. - Leicht gebräunt (Titelblatt stärker), insgesamt gut erhalten.

        Report of the Trial of Brig. General William Hull; Commanding the North-Western Army of the United States By a Court Martial Held at Albany on Monday, 3rd January, 1814, and Succeeding Days, Etc.

      New York: Eastburn, Kirk and Co., 1814. Brig Gen. Duncan McArthur's Orders to Attend General Hull's Court Martial A remarkable document from the Court Martial Brig. General William Hull following his surrender of Detroit, which resulted in a death sentence for cowardice. Although his sentence was later remitted, General William Hull is the only U.S. general to be sentenced to death by an American court-martial. This copy of the court martial transcript belonged to Hull's second in command, Brig Gen. Duncan McArthur, and includes the actual hand-written orders commanding him to attend (and testify). McArthur's testimony was an essential and central part of the trial, filling the entirety of pages 47 to 73. In it (as well as numerous contemporary accounts), his outrage against Hull's conduct as Commander of the Army of the Northwest during the War of 1812, including the entire campaign in and around Detroit, which ended with Hull's surrender not only of Detrit and the forces directly under his command, but for some reason of detached troops under McArthur's command (which particularly enraged McArthur). Tipped in is the handwritten order (a letter of summons) from Inspector General Abimael Youngs Nicoll to Brigadier General Duncan McArthur commanding his appearance at General Hull's court martial (letter is dated December 2nd, 1813) and includes the folded envelope addressed to McArthur. Duncan McArthur (1772-1839), Brigadier General, later Governor of Ohio. 156pp. + 177 + 29pp. appendices. Rebound in black cloth, gilt title on spine. Light foxing in places; cloth has light surface wear, else a Very Good copy. The President of the Court was Major General Henry Dearborn, and the special Judge Advocate was Martin van Buren, later President of the United States. There is a signature on the title page somewhat reminiscent of Van Buren's during this period, appearing to read "M.v.B [illegible]". Additional provenance: Later the property of Brig. General Thomas McArthur Anderson copy (grandson of Brig Gen. Duncan McArthur), with his signature to the title page, pg. 19, and the last page of text. General Anderson had four decades of decorated service (1861-1900), extending from his rise to brevet rank of Lt. Colonel during the Civil War, to command of the Army force sent to Skagway and Dyea Alaska to protect American miners heading to the Klondike Gold Rush, to his command of the first "Philippine Expeditionary Force" during the Spanish-American War. During the Philippine campaign, he was promoted to the brevet Major General of U.S. Volunteers (two stars), and retired as a Brigadier General.. First Edition. Hardcover.

        Ah! Papa, tu t'es fait bien du mal.

      Isola d'Elba - Napoleone - Re di Roma 1814 - Bella e rara raffigurazione caricaturale di Napoleone e l'Isola d'Elba in coloritura coeva."Ah, Papà, ti sei fatto male." La caduta dell'Imperatore è anche fisica: misurando col compasso l'Isola d'Elba sulla carta (a scala falsa) appesa alla parete, Napoleone precipita sul dorso, riconoscendo la portata del suo crollo. Mentre il cappello gli cade dal capo la spada infilata alla vita si spezza in due; il piccolo Re di Roma, che sopraggiunge spaventato, piange nel fazzoletto perché il papà si è fatto male. A terra vicino a lui c'è un gioco del diabolo: insieme al padre, anche il figlio ha smesso di giocare come erede al trono. L'11 aprile 1814 le potenze alleate garantirono a Napoleone la sovranità sull'Elba; circa una settimana dopo l'ex monarca partì per l'esilio. Rif: "Napoleon I im Spiegel der Karikatur".

First edition of this translation of the bandaging part of Heister's monumental Chirurgie (1718); complete with the rare third volume containing the fine woodcuts. In 1792, Gentaku Otsuki completed the translation of the entire text of Heister's Chirurgie, using the 1755 Dutch edition; portions were published in the 1820s. "Genkan Otsuki, the son of Gentaku, revised that part of his father's work concerned with bandaging and in 1814 published the Geka shuko (sometimes referred to as Taisei geka shuko)."-Mestler, "Introduction to Western Influences in Pre-Meiji Japanese Medicine" in Proceedings of the Royal Society of Medicine, Vol. 50, p. 1010. The fine illustrations in the rare third volume are by Untan Kaburagi (1782-1852 or 1853), who was the official artist engaged by Omurahan fiefdom in Nagasaki. They depict a series of bandaging techniques including compression bandaging of various parts of the body, types of bandaging materials, bandaging for burns of the face, fractures, splints to immobilize limbs, etc. One of the earlier full-page woodcuts depict the four kinds of bandages - the triangle, roller, four-tailed, and many tailed. All the woodcuts depicting the bandaging of humans have been printed a second time using blocks with a delicate "flesh" color. Fine and complete set. An early owner has annotated many of the illustrations in Dutch or Japanese in a neat hand. The NLM set lacks the third volume with the illustrations. ❧ Mestler, A Galaxy of Old Japanese Medical Books, V, p. 214 for the atlas volume.

        Log of the proceedings of H. M. Ship Comus between the 2nd October 1814 & 8th June 1815 John Taileur Esq. Captain

      (Off of Calabar, West Africa, 1814. Near Fine. Folio. Measuring 8" x 12". Contemporary marbled paper over thin wastepaper wrappers with a small paper label on the front cover. 96 manuscript pages, each ruled and densely written in a neat hand. Small tears, nicks, and erosion on the wrappers; internally with creases at the bottom corners of some leaves, the original stitching is present but neatly detached within the gathering, else near fine. Housed in a custom cloth clamshell box with red morocco spine label titled in gilt. Neatly filled out in a small but legible hand with standard ships' log information in ruled headers and columns (giving locations, weather, etc.), together with narrative accounts "Remarks & Occurrences" of actions taken by the ship, including accounts of encounters and armed conflicts with pirate slavers.The Captain's Log of the H.M.S. Comus, a 22-gun sixth rate man-of-war which had a distinguished record capturing Spanish, Danish, and other ships, including the American ship Jane Barnes during the War of 1812. Taileur took command in 1814, under the orders of Commodore Thomas Browne to suppress piracy and disrupt the illegal West African slave trade. His log book chronicles this period when the Comus spent six months with the West African Squadron interdicting slave ships and destroying slave factories, at which her crew was very successful, capturing ten slave ships and freeing close to 1000 slaves.The Comus also was the first man-of-war to ascend the Old Calabar River to Duke Town (Nigeria), where in March 1814 her armed boats captured seven Portuguese and Spanish vessels with 550 slaves embarked. The following extract from 16 March describes the capture of the Portuguese slave schooner Dos Amigos:"8:15 Obs'd 2 Strangers N NW, 8:30 Tacked ship, 9:30 sent the Cutter armed in chace of the sternmost vessel, 10:40 Obs'd S[tranger] fire several guns at the Cutter, lost sight of the other Stranger ... 11:20 Obs'd the Stranger hove up, for us, the Cutter having boarded her, sent the Gig with assistance ... 12:30 hove too & the Schooner Duos Amigos ... bound to Catalan for Slaves ... ."With the detained "schooner in tow," the Log then describes "running up the Calabar River," to Duke Town, and the capture of seven Spanish and Portuguese slavers, including "the Portuguese brig Santa Anna fitted for Slaves":"am - Light airs with thunder & lightening, 4:45 heard 2 rockets burst over the [?] in the direction of old Calabar. Supposed to be from our Boats as a signal for being in possession of some vessels ... Made down at 11, the Gig which had been expected with intelligence from the Boats not yet in sight. 11:20 obs'd a great number of large canoes coming down the River, beat to Quarters ... ."Britain had outlawed the slave trade (but hadn't yet abolished slavery) in 1807. Thereafter illegal traders continued to smuggle slaves to the British West Indies (and to nearby plantations). This historically important and detailed Log of the Comus provides early evidence of the Royal Navy's vigorous policy to enforce the British ban by shutting down the slave trade routes and seizing slave ships at sea. We suspect determined study of the Log by a scholar with the persistence to read Captain Taileur's small but neat handwriting will be greatly rewarded.

        Manuscript Copy of an Oration delivered on board the Nassau

      Chatham, United Kingdom, 1814. Unbound. Good. Contemporary eight-page manuscript transcription (perhaps the speaker's original copy) of the speech, written on four leaves measuring 7.25" x 8.75". Toned with some edge wear and storage folds. Archival repair and reinforcement along some folds; missing a section of the last page that contains the final two sentences of the speech. A transcript will be included. During the War of 1812, thousands of impressed American sailors refused to fight on British warships and were imprisoned in floating prison hulks at Chatham, where they were subjected to "hard fare," "scoundrelism," and "shockingly cruel punishments," In 1813, the prisoners aboard one ship attempted to celebrate Independence Day by flying two American flags, and two men were shot by British guards who were attempting to confiscate the colors. On July 4th of the following year, mindful of the near riot that had previously occurred, the British allowed Americans aboard the prison ships Crown Prince and Nassau to celebrate by flying an American flag (only as high as the 'railings'), playing of Yankee Doodle with drums and pipes on the fo'c'sle, cheering, and toasting with British porter. There was also "much speechifying, especially on the Nassau." (For more information see A Journal of a Young Man . . . Late a Surgeon . . . Confined . . . at Chatham, in England. . . . by Amos G. Babcock (Benjamin Waterhouse) and Prisoners of War in Britain, 1756-1815. . . . by Francis Abell. This manuscript text of one of the Nassau speeches is both patriotic and impassioned. It begins with a celebration of the American Revolution and diatribe against British atrocities: "Towns and Villages were burnt and nothing but Desolation and Destruction appeared from one end of our Country to the other. . . . But to complete the horrid scene an Infernal Horde of Savage Murderers were promoted by our Enemies to butcher our helpless Women and Children. . . . Oh Britian, Britian had thy Counsellors been sound and just, had they listened with attention and followed the advice of the Immortal Pitt, Britian and America might have been one at the present Hour." And it concludes with stirring exhortation to continue to resist offers of freedom in exchange for service in the British Navy: "Many of you Present my beloved Countrymen have voluntarily embraced this loathsome Prison rather than betray your Country for . . . to aid abet or give any kind of assistance to an Enemy is Treason, is Death. . . . Let us be ready to embrace the Icy Arms of Death rather than shew the least symptoms of an Inclination to betray our Country. Some have done it who pretended to be Americans so far as to shield themselves under the Name. Whether they were real Americans or not, its hard to say but . . . I have not the least doubt but they will meet their reward, that is they will be spurned by the very persons who laid the bait for them. There Characters will forever be condemned held in detestation. . . . Therefore all you who feel the Tide of true born American blood flow through your veins I hope will never attempt to flee from the Allegiance of your Country. Its Cowardice. Its Felony. And for those who have done it we may pray that the departed spirits of their Fathers who so nobly fought bled and fell in the Conflict to gain them their Liberty will haunt them in their midnight slumbers that they may feel the Horror of their Conscience and the dread of a Gallows for what they have done." This manuscript text of the speech probably predates a printed copy published in 1815 (see Bibliotheca Americana 3799) as the printed copy was slightly revised with corrected grammar, punctuation, capitalization, and spelling. This manuscript was probably transcribed at the time by one of the prisoners on the Nassau or perhaps by the original speaker. A unique manuscript; OCLC locates no other contemporary manuscript transcriptions of speeches given by American prisoners during the War of 1812. However, OCLC shows that printed copies prepared by the unknown Boston publisher in 1815 are held by 11 institutions although this number appears to include modern Kirtas Technology digital scans.

        El Modelo de los Cristianos presentado a los Insurgentes de América, y una introduccion necesarísima para desengaño de muchos en las actuales circunstancias, en la qual se funda el derecho de la soberania propria del Sr. D. Fernando VII.; [Together with] El Modelo de los Cristianos; Jesus en el Calvario y maria su Madre mirandole.

      Mexico: en la oficina de Ontiveros, 1814 - 2 works bound in 1, small square octavo (172 x 113 mm). Publisher's Mexican marbled sheep, flat spine gilt ruled and decorated with gilt fleurons, gilt roll tool border on sides enclosing a broad gilt roll tool panel consisting of pomegranates, foliage and flowers, yellow edges, marbled endpapers. Minor wear to extremities; a lovely copy, wide-margined and crisp. First edition of this political tract, published in the years preceding the Mexican War of Independence, in an unusually excellent and richly decorated Mexican binding. Fernandez de San Salvador (1756–1842), was a writer and lawyer devotedly loyal to the Old Regime and the King of Spain, Ferdinand VII. The first of these two works, El Modelo de Los Cristianos presentado a los Insurgentes de América, warns its readers against revolutionaries, both those in support of Napoleon, and those in support of total independence from Europe. From 1808 to 1813 Spain, and therefore Mexico, had been under Napoleonic rule. Ferdinand VII was reinstated as King on 11 December 1813, however the power of the monarchy had been greatly diminished. This work therefore warns against the calls emerging in the light of this turbulence for total independence from Europe; which included calls made by San Salvador's own niece, Leona Vicario. Vicario, an orphan, who is often described as "the great heroine of Mexican Independence", was under the guardianship of San Salvador when she began her crucial involvement in the independence movement. This rift in their political ideals did not, however, appear to cause great conflict between the two, despite Vicario being imprisoned in March 1813. Vicario soon escaped and joined the rebel army, marring a fellow insurgent, Andrés Quintana Roo, who was coincidentally San Salvador's former law clerk. The second work is a religious treaty which promotes traditional Catholic devotion during times of discord. It includes a subscribers list, which details the distribution of the 800 copies published, and suggests that just 12 copies were bound thus.

        Sefer Maharsha: hidushe halakhot.

      Wien (Vienna), gedrukt bei Anton Schmid k. k. priv. deitsch- und hebreischem Buchdruker, 1814. - Folio (240 x 350 mm). 2 parts in 1 vol. (1), 272 ff. Title page printed in red and black. Part 2 has separate t. p. with woodcut printer's device: Hidushe halachot mahadure batra. (1), 47 ff. Ibid., 1814. Contemp. half calf. Principal work of rabbi Samuel Eliezer Edels (1555-1631), known as the "Maharsha" (an acronym for "Our Teacher, the Rabbi Shmuel Eidels"). His "Chiddushei Halachot" ("Novellae in Jewish Law") constitutes a commentary on the Talmud, Rashi and Tosafot together, and with a focus on Tosafot. "This commentary was quickly accepted and was printed in almost all editions of the Talmud" (Wikipedia). "This edition comprises the author's larger work, 'Hidushe halakhot', plus a smaller last recension, 'Hidushe halakhot mahadure batra'" (OCLC), the latter by Moses ben Isaac mi-Lublin (d. 1668). - Anton Schmid had been one of Kurzböck's apprentices and as such had been sent to the Vienna Oriental Academy to learn Hebrew. Schmid later bought Kurzböck's Hebrew types from the printer's widow and succeeded his former master, soon to become Austria's foremost printer of Hebrew, and one of the most capable ones on the continent. Imprint in Yiddish: "Vin, gedrukt bei Anton Schmid k. k. priv. deitsch- und hebreischem Buchdruker". (The reason why a Christian businessman could rise to the honors of an "imperially and royally privileged Hebrew printer" was quite simply that, in spite of the 1782 Edict of Tolerance, Jews were still prohibited - by an older law - from operating a printing press.) - Browned throughout; first three pages professionally remargined. Contemp. Hebrew ownership to t. p. Vinograd II, 414. OCLC 122752399. Fürst I, 221 ("Bereichert mit verschiedenartigen Noten berühmter Männer").

        Journal of a Voyage in 1811 and 1812, to Madras and China; Returning by the Cape of Good Hope and St. Helena; in the H. C. S. The Hope, Capt. James Pendergrass[...] illustrated with Twenty-Four Coloured Prints, from Drawings by the Author

      London: J. Nichols (etc.), 1814. (First edition). Hardcover. Good +. Quarto, xx, 246pp., illustrated with 24 hand-colored aquatints. In period (or perhaps a little later) 3/4 brown polished calf and marbled boards with red-orange endpapers. Some dampstaining to front board, with chips and nicks to the extremities of the boards. Possible water damage to part of the spine, and the front outer joint is partially cracked, though the board is holding strong. One plate (opposite page 67, depicting the Pagoda), was poorly trimmed by the printer, with the bottom part of the plate title cut off, and the plate appearing slightly canted on the leaf (the illustration itself is entirely present). Some scattered foxing to a few leaves, but generally an unfoxed example, with only some mild, normal age-toning to the single leaves opposite a few of the plates). Some dampstaining to parts of the text and some of the plates, most obviously in about the last sixth of the book. This could be significantly improved by a professional conservator, if desired. There is no half-title (we are unsure if this is as issued or not). Overall, an unsophisticated and unrestored complete copy of this notable travel account, overall a good or better copy.

        Travels to the Source of the Missouri River and Across the American Continent to the Pacific Ocean. Performed by Order of the Government of the United States, In the Years 1804, 1805, and 1806. By Captains Lewis and Clarke [sic]...

      London: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown. Very Good. 1814. First British Edition. Hardcover. Contemporary half leather binding with marbled paper boards and marbled edges; spine has intricate designs on raised bands with title gilt. All maps and plates present; 1pp publisher's advertisements at rear. Large folding map engraved by Neele measures 26 ½" x 11 ¾" and is in very good condition; folding map has moderate offsetting throughout, a closed tear where folds meet binding, a 1" tear on bottom edge, and light pencil marginalia; folding map has left a blind indentation on opposing few leaves of text block. Five engravings on three plates are in very good condition with light to moderate foxing. Boards have moderate wear to all edges, minor chipping at corners and gutters are cracked; front and rear pastedowns have red glue residue in multiple locations. Overall a very good copy. This is the first British edition of "the definitive account of the most important exploration of North America" (Wagner-Camp 13: 1). This volume contains the history of the Lewis and Clark Expedition as well as one of the most influential maps ever created, complied from the drawings of William Clark. Published first in Philadelphia as a two volume set, this edition was published the same year and included maps and plates. Clark's famous map is almost identical, except for a few slight differences, and like the Philadelphia edition, its inclusion is quite rare to find. After the monumental purchase of the Louisiana Territory in 1803, President Jefferson called upon Meriwether Lewis and William Clark to explore the newly purchased land, to create an initial route for westward expansion, and to make systematic reports of the Missouri River's geography, flora, fauna and human inhabitants. Jefferson hoped that the Expedition would find a water route to link the Columbia and Missouri Rivers; discover good soil and new plant species for agriculture; and become liaisons for the government of Indian nations. With this tremendous task at hand, Lewis and Clark would organize the Corps of Discovery which would undertake a two-year journey. From 1804 to 1806 Lewis and Clark led the Corps from Illinois to the Pacific Ocean. Journal entries ranged from short and simple to lengthy and detailed, and provide a remarkable wealth of knowledge on the natural history, geography and ethnology of this new portion of the nation. Overall the Corps of Discovery is credited with bringing to light 178 plant species and 122 animal species previously unknown to American and European scientists. Along with consistent journal entries, "William Clark drew a series of maps that were remarkably detailed, noting and naming rivers and creeks, significant points in the landscape, the shape of river shore, and spots where the Corps spent each night or camped or portaged for longer periods of time. Later explorers used these maps to further probe the western portion of the continent" (U. S. National Archives and Records). The folding map included in this volume is Clark's renowned map of the West. In wonderful detail it illustrates the enormity of the famous Expedition. This map "is gone from many if not most copies of the book now extant…"(Streeter: 1777). This extraordinary expedition, chronicled in this volume and maps, has left a lasting imprint on America. As purveyors of Western Americana and Natural History, we are honored to handle this rare and spectacular record of United States history, science and exploration.

        Annuaire des modes de Paris, orné de douze gravures Première année

      Paris: Chez l'éditeur ... au Bureau du Journal des Dames, et chez Delaunay, Libraire, 1814. 12mo (14 cm, 5.5"). 228 pp.; 12 plts. In the year of this fashion annual's appearance, Jane Austen had just published (in 1813) Pride and Prejudice, the allies invaded France ending one of the Napoleonic wars and sending Napoleon into exile on Elba, and the British burned the U.S. White House.    Ladies' fashion in Regency-period Europe is the topic of the Annuaire des modes de Paris. Each of the => twelve plates is dedicated to a different month of the year and its appropriate garments, and each plate is explained prior to an itemization of what articles of under- and outerwear, as well as the number of each, that a woman would need for the month. This is followed by listings of the shops where each article can be purchased.    The plates are unsigned engravings that have been => very carefully hand colored. Several OPAC records suggest, based on Colas, that the work was "probably edited by P. de la Mésangère, editor of Journal des dames." Those same OPACs suggest that later issues had a name change to the Almanach des modes (1814–22), which seems most unlikely as that publisher and editor had no connection with either the publisher or editor of this work.    WorldCat locates only two U.S. libraries reporting ownership, the L.A. County Museum of Art and the Clark Art Institute: Both catalogue their copies as having only eleven plates. As peculiar as this seems, the volume appears to be bound in full dark red leather, with a richly gilt spine, over the boards (only) of which lighter red leather coverings, gilt-tooled, have been applied. Blue-veined marbled endpapers, all edges gilt, and silk place marker. Mild wear overall with area of discoloration on rear board, apparently from a liquid that lightened the color. Pages and plates gently age-toned, with intermittent light foxing. => Back free endpaper with early inked inscription: "Livre donné par ma tante.
