[Mexico] [Restitution of the Spanish Crown over Spain, from the French invasion] Barazabal, Mariano.
N.d. [c.1814]. N.p. [Mexico]. 8vo (192 x 150 mm). 1 ff. Unbound. Very good.- Possibly first edition; an extremely rare pamphlet, ephemeral in nature, containing an ode in honor of restitution of Ferdinand VII as King of Spain, following the retreat of the French forces from Spain, and the abdication of his father. Barazabal (1772 – 1807) was a Mexican poet and fabulist, and ultimately an advocate to the revolutionary cause; he collaborated in the Diario de Mexico and the Noticioso General. We find only one copy at the University of Texas according to Worldcat. Fichero bio-bibliografico de la literatura Mexicana del siglo XIX (1995).

He commanded his regiment in the invasion of France after Waterloo and remained in France until 1819 when he finally retired. Napier wrote this work following the suggestion of Henry Bickersteth. He did so to defend the memory of Sir John Moore and to prevent him being overshadowed by Wellington. Napier was assisted by Wellington for the production of this work as he provided Joseph Bonaparte's correspondence that was captured at the battle of Vittoria. The letters were written in cipher, but Mrs Napier discovered the key. Upon initial publication the first volume did not have many sales. Murray was disappointed by sales of the first volume and therefore Napier published the remainder himse … [Click Below for Full Description]

By An Officer of His Majesty's Late Ship Wolverene. By M.Miller. Printed in Yeovil by R.S.Langdon in 1814. First edition. A description of the incarceration of the crew of HMS Wolverine who were captured by the French in 1804 and the subsequent escape of some of the prisoners including the author, an officer of the ship, via Rotterdam to England in 1810. HMS Wolverine, described as a 'brig-sloop', was armed with 14 guns of various sizes that unusually for the day, pivoted along the centreline of the ship, allowing them to fire from either side of the vessel. On March 21st, 1804, whilst escorting a convoy to Newfoundland, the ship engaged the French privateer 'Blonde' which inflicted such damage on the Wolverine that she capitulated after an hour and sank soon after the surviving crew members were rescued by the French vessel. The subsequent naval inquiry found that damage to the complicated gun carriages rendering them unusable, had been a major cause of the loss of the ship.

Just ask! 1814 Wealth of Nations Adam Smith Economics Industrial Revolution Capitalism 4v "Nobody ever saw a dog make a fair and deliberate exchange of one bone for another with another dog." ― Adam Smith, The Wealth of Nations An early 19th-century edition of the famous "Wealth of Nations" by Adam Smith. "Wealth of Nations" was one of the world's first collected descriptions of what builds a nations' economy, wealth, and capitalism. Smith begins this landmark work by stating that the source of a nation's wealth comes from the labor of the people. Throughout the rest of the work, Smith shows how productivity and financial exchanges are the root of a working economy. This rare 1814 four volume edition was published in Edinburgh in three volumes with an additional volume by Buchanan on his 'Observations on the subjects treated of in Dr. Smith's Inquiry into the nature and causes of the wealth of nations.'

Winkfield, Unca Eliza [pseudonym]
Published by Jepthah Shedd and Co. Wright & Sibley, printers, Vergennes, Vt, 1814. 270 pp. 12mo: A - W^6 X^9. 5-5/8" x 3-1/4" A fictional account, in the popular Robinsonade genre, first published in London, 1767. The novel describes the adventures of a half-Native American, half-English woman, who is shipwrecked on a deserted isle, where the protagonist uses her knowledge of Christianity to convert the indigenous inhabitants.While there are many similarities to Defoe's earlier ground-breaking work, "the differences are what make The Female American distinctive. For instance, the narrator is not only a woman but is also biracial, as the daughter of a Native American princess and an English settler who resided in Virginia. The protagonist is also multilingual. Although Defoe's protagonist (Robinson Crusoe) chooses to leave his home and set out into an unexplored and dangerous life abroad, Winkfield's protagonist's (Unca Eliza Winkfield) trials and adventures are forced upon her. It is only in the latter part of the narrative that the female protagonist finds a living condition on the island that is more favorable than her American or European origins. In addition, the novel engages with the theme of finding one's home away from the native land, which can be identified in a range of fiction of 18th-century England. While Defoe's protagonist remains condescending towards the native people that he encounters and easily deserts his companions for personal salvation, Winkfield's protagonist is compassionate and benevolent towards the indigenous community, embracing its practices. … [Click Below for Full Description]

LEWIS, MERIWETHER and WILLIAM CLARK
Philadelphia: Bradford & Inskeep, 1814. First edition, a rare untrimmed copy in the original boards. This is the definitive account of the most important exploration of the North American continent (Wagner- Camp-Becker). Thomas Jefferson had begun the planning of a western expedition even before his inauguration in 1801. Early that year he appointed Meriwether Lewis as his secretary, in part, as he wrote the army officer, because of your knowledge of the Western country. Early in 1803 Jefferson proposed the expedition to Congress, and soon thereafter the Louisiana Purchase removed the major obstacles blocking not only the expedition, but also westward expansion. The resulting expedition, to the headwaters of the Missouri River, across the Rocky Mountains, and on to the Pacific Ocean, covered some 8000 miles in twenty-eight months. Many of the 1417 copies printed were issued without the map, which was available at a premium, and the map has disappeared from others. Engraved from Clark s manuscript, this map showing the 8000- mile trek is one of the greatest landmarks American cartography. More accurate than any previous western map, it rapidly became the source for a new generation of western maps (Schwartz and Ehrenberg, The Mapping of America, p. 227). This official account of the expedition is the most important of all overland narratives American explorers had for the first time spanned the continental United States and driven the first wedge in the settlement of our new far western frontier (Grolier 100 American Books). Lewis and Clark in the original printed boards is … [Click Below for Full Description]

Yarmouth: Printed by J. Keymer, Unpublished, 1814. First Edition, 4to (260 x 205 mm), [2], 72pp., large paper copy, with an additional portrait of the author engraved by John Collyers, title-page printed in red and black, added engraved title depicting Neptune with trident framed by scenes of the celebrations, large folding engraved plan of the table layout along the quay, one further engraved plate, contemporary crimson morocco-backed boards, original pink printed label on upper cover, spine rubbed and joints cracked. A festival to celebrate the fall of Napoleon I, April 1814. a vivid account of the 'grand festival' in Great Yarmouth was written by Robert Cory, a local businessman and the builder of a suspension bridge across the River Yare which collapsed in 1845 with considerable loss of life. Inclusively was again the order of the day, and on a larger scale than at Cambridge: over 9,000 people were fed at fifty-eight tables stretched along the waterfront. An afternoon of feasting, donkey-racing and a 'pig hunt' culminated in the burning of a vast, symbolic bonfire representing the 'Funeral Pile of the Buonapartean Dynasty'. Despite concerns prompted by the participation of 'the lowest order of society', everything passed off peacefully. Even the weather obliged: the drizzle stopped five minutes before dinner was served.
