        Cary's Traveller's Companion; or, a Delineation of the Turnpike roads of England and Wales; Hewing the Immediate Route to Every Market and Boroughtown Throughout the Kingdom, Laid Down from the Bet Authorities, on a New Set of County Maps.

      John Cary, London 1814 - 12mo. [3] leaves, [43] full page maps outlined in color(1 folded), maps. subtitle continues: to which is added, an alphabetical list of all the market towns, with days on which they are held. Beginning in 1790 John Cary began to issue a guide to the turnpike roads of England. Unless a great house was near one of these roads which also led to the major market towns, roads were muddy and difficult even when traveling by horse and virtually impossible to access by carriage. Originally, the parish was responsible to have a road to have the population reach for divine services but they had neither the funds or the inclination to expand access. Once the turnpike trusts were developed with tolls at each 20 mile interval, the economic growth was remarkable. Pencil note by previous owner on endpaper (M.J.B., Jr.) ordered this copy in 1920 from Reginald Atkinson, 188 Peckham Rye, London and received it by parcel post Jan. 16, 1921 at cost of 17s, 6 d. Then while looking for another book in in his book cases in 1941 came across this small volume and wondered whether he would be around in 1961 to reexamine the book. Bound in full contemporary calf, spine decorated in gilt, red morocco spine label gilt. A very scarce item in good condition with outer joints tender.

        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.

      Eastburn, Kirk and Co., New York 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.

        De pateris antiquorum ex schedis Iacobi Tatii Biancani sermo et epistolae (translation of title: "About the saucers of the ancients. From the papers of Giacomo Tazzi Biancani. Speech and letters.")

      Ex typographia Iosephi De Franceschis, Bononiae 1814 - Extremely rare first edition. Ex typographia Iosephi De Franceschis, Bononiae, 1814. Folio (366 x 245 mm), quarter calf binding. 32 plates engraved on copper. spine and borders of binding are damaged with wormholes, not affecting text nor plates, inside very good. The work was only published in 1814, about twenty years after the death of the author. The work renders the vast and erudite Etruscological knowledge of Biancani Tazzi. It was published thanks to the intervention of Filippo Schiassi, guardian of the Museum of Antiquity, who almost faithfully copied the manuscripts of Biancani Tazzi, adding to the savant apparatus some of his linguistic considerations on the readings of the names imprinted on the pateres and on some mythographic interpretation. The book's first part is a conference held in 1808 at the Regio Archiginnasio of Filippo Schiassi, who held the Chair of Archaeology. Follow some letters sent to various Italian scholars discussing the mirrors reproduced on the plates. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        CAREY'S GENERAL ATLAS, IMPROVED AND ENLARGED: BEING A COLLECTION OF MAPS OF THE WORLD.

      Philadelphia: Published by M. Carey, 1814. - 3 preliminary leaves and 58 sheets of maps (50 double-page). Maps outlined in color. Tall folio. Antique style half calf and marbled boards. Titlepage with significant repaired damage, about 20% in upper fore-edge corner supplied in facsimile. Two preliminary text leaves also with paper repairs. The maps all pristine, with original outline color, and very fine. Except for the text leaves, a beautiful copy of this important early American atlas. This is one of the earliest American atlases published in the United States. The first American atlas was issued in 1795, and was also published by Carey. That atlas contained only 21 maps, so the present 1814 atlas, with 58 maps, is much improved and expanded from the original effort. Most of the atlas is devoted to the United States and its territories, and incorporates the latest geographical knowledge available, by what was then one of the premier mapping firms in the United States. There are maps of virtually every state, including the North-Western, Michigan, Illinois and Indiana Territories. The western maps are particularly detailed, incorporating geographic information from recent explorations. The map of the whole North American continent and the excellent large detailed map of the United States and territories can lay claim to being the best available to that time. The other maps are of the West Indies, South America, Mexico, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and one of "Captain Cook's Discoveries" showing a large part of the North Pacific and as far south as the Hawaiian Islands. Wheat points out that the map of Missouri Territory was influenced by the recent explorations of Lewis and Clark: "Lewis and Clark influence is apparent on the Upper Missouri and also along the Columbia. Missouri Territory extends west to the Pacific Coast, its probable northern and southern boundaries being shown by colored dotted lines. The northern line runs easterly from Mt. Ranier and includes most of the Columbia watershed, thence north of the Missouri drainage and including that of the Assiniboin (with its large lake), thence east to Lake of the Woods and south to the head of the Mississippi, which then forms the eastern boundary. The southern line leaves the coast just north of F.S. Francisco (whose Bay is not shown), thence easterly and slightly north of the headwaters of the Rio Grande, following south along the ridge east of that stream, southeast to the head of the Colorado (of Texas) and down that stream to the Gulf of Mexico at St. Bernardo B. The Stat of Louisiana (admitted 1812) appears near the mouth of the Mississippi." PHILLIPS ATLASES 722. STREETER SALE 82. WHEAT TRANSMISSISSIPPI WEST 315.

        [Game of costumes for titles and professions].[London?, ca. 1814]. 16mo? (13 x 10.5 cm). Series of 20 finely designed and executed original gouache and watercolour drawings (the drawn images about 9 x 8 cm), 1 mounted on paperboard showing a bust portrait of a young man with his head turned in profile, in a multi-line frame drawn in grey ink, and 19 others showing richly coloured costumes for noblemen, gentlemen, military men and commoners of various titles and professions with their associated hats or crowns, each cut out as designed, to be overlaid on the portrait to transform the portrait into any of the 19 costume figures.

      Cf. Gumuchian 3229 bis. Beautifully designed and skilfully executed game, drawn in gouaches and watercolour, comprising a colour portrait of a young man and 19 cut-out costume drawings in bright colours (including their associated hats or crowns) that can be overlaid on the portrait to dress the man to suit any of 19 different professions or titles: a sort of metamorphosis game of ranks and professions. It was probably intended both as entertainment and education for children and as a pastime for adults (especially women?). Eleven drawings have contemporary or near contemporary manuscript captions on the back in English, identifying the profession, military rank, title or ethnic group associated with the costume, and some of the others can be identified. Two of costumes are explicitly labelled as an English and a French style of "dress for the year 1814" and another is labelled "Member of the Whix Club 1814". The portrait is very slightly foxed, one costume drawing has lost its hat, the left margin has been torn off another without affecting the drawing (though the hat has been reattached), and there are a couple very minor tears or bent parts, but further in very good condition and with the colours fresh and bright. A beautiful English watercolour costume game that can transform its portrait into 19 different figures.

        The Seats of the Nobility and Gentry

      1814. WATTS, William. The Seats of the Nobility and Gentry, in a Collection of the most interesting & Picturesque Views. Engraved title-page and 84 plates, each with a leaf of descriptive text in letterpress, 1 f. ("Alphabetical Index"). Oblong 4to., 210 x 265 mm, bound in contemporary English red morocco, board edges gilt, spine gilt, a.e.g. London: John & Josiah Boydell, [ca. 1814]. |~||~||~||~||~||~| The delicate engravings in Watts's famous work, Seats of the Nobility and Gentry, offer present-day viewers a record of English stately homes and the late-eighteenth-century gardens that surrounded them. The engravings were executed by Watts after his own designs, as well as those of Inigo Jones and others. John Harris has shown that these views offer valuable contemporary evidence of the architecture and gardens of each estate. Among the famous homes are: two views of Chiswick House, Middlesex, the seat of the Duke of Devonshire, another of Chatsworth in Derbyshire with modifications by Lancelot "Capability" Brown; Burghley House in Northamptonshire, the seat of the Earl of Exeter, with alterations by "Capability" Brown; Wilton House, the seat of the Earl of Pembroke; Alnwick Castle, the seat of the Duke of Northumberland; Charlton House in Wiltshire, the seat of the Earl of Suffolk, which was designed by Inigo Jones; and many others. William Watts (1752-1851) obtained his art education from such noted artists as Paul Sandby and Edward Rooker. His Seats of the Nobility and Gentry, which was originally issued serially in the years 1779-1786, is his best known work. Also a popular work, it was reprinted throughout the beginning of the nineteenth century, this copy with paper watermarked 1814. This copy with a contemporanious manuscipt index laid in. Joints professionally repaired, some minor foxing, overall a near fine copy. John Harris, The Artist and the Country House, pp. 156, 258, 261, 282. Bryan V, 347. Bénézit X, 656.

        Les souvenirs prophétiques d?une sibylle, sur les causes secrètes de son arrestation, le 11 décembre 1809. Ornés d?une gravuve. Par Mlle A. A. Le Normand.

      - Paris, Chez l?auteur, rue de Tournon, no 5, 1814. 8vo. Engr. front,+ (5),+ (blank),+ ix,+ (1),+ 592,+ (4) pp. Fine contemporary brown half calf, richly gilt spine, marbled boards and green edges. Signed by the author as authentication. From the library of Gustaf Bonde at Säfstaholm, with his gilt initials on the spine and his book plate, and with the bookplate of Arnold Hjort. Fine copy of the first edition, signed by the auteur. Marie Anne Adelaide Lenormand (1772-1843) was a French professional fortune-teller. She was active for more than 40 years and of considerable fame during the Napoleonic era, and she claimed to have given cartomantic (the future as seen in cards) advice to many famous persons, like Marat, Robespierre, St-Just, empress Josephine and czar Alexander. In 1814 she started a new literary career, with several public controversies as a result, and she was imprisoned more than once. In France she is considered as one of the greatest cartomancer, and she was highly influential for the wave of cartomancy that began in the late 18th century. The frontispiece is engraved by Fr. Janet after Seb. Le Roy and shows the sibully?s room where the police oficers are entering with an arrestment order and the sibylle is sitting with her cards in front of her at a table.

        King George III of England

      June 27, 1814. Attractive Partly-printed document signed by sheriff's Benjamin Bickley and Philip George, one page, 12" x 15", June 27, 1814, headed "A PROCLAMATION", By His Royal Highness THE PRINCE OF WALES, printed by George Eyre and Andrew Strahan, printers to the King's most excellent Majesty.Referring to the 1814 Treaty of Paris which ended the war between France and the Sixth Coalition of the United Kingdom, Russia, Austria, Sweden and Prussia. It also enforced the abdication of Napoleon I. Expertly backed, two minor stains. Fine.In part: "Whereas a Definitive Treaty of Peace and Friendship between His Majesty and His Most Christian Majesty, hath been concluded at Paris, on the Thirtieth Day of May last... We do declare to all His Majesty's loving Subjects Our Will and Pleasure, that the said Treaty of Peace and Friendship be observed inviolably, as well by Sea as Land... Given at the Court at Carleton House, the Seventeenth Day of June One thousand eight hundred and fourteen, and in the fifty-fourth Year of His Majesty's Reign." Followed by the pronouncement: "God save the King". The 1814 Treaty of Paris, signed on May 30, 1814, ended the war between France and the Sixth Coalition. It also enforced the abdication of Napoleon I. France's borders were restored to those of 1792 but there was little punitive action against France, except that the Seychelles were ceded to the United Kingdom. The greater territorial reshaping of Europe was reserved for the Congress of Vienna. 2.5 million troops fought in the conflict and the total dead amounted to as many as 2 million (some estimates suggest that over a million died in Russia alone). It included the battles of Smolensk, Borodino, Lützen, Dresden and the epic Battle of Nations - the largest of the Napoleonic wars, and indeed the largest battle in Western history up until the First World War. The final stage of the campaign, the defense of France, saw the Emperor temporarily return to his former talent as he fought off immensely numerically superior armies in the Six Days Campaign, which many say was the best campaign of his entire career. Ultimately his earlier mistakes in Russia and Germany were too great to be rectified at this late stage and the Allies occupied Paris, forcing the emperor to abdicate. George III (George William Frederick) (1738-1820) was King of Great Britain and King of Ireland from 1760 until 1801, and thereafter United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland until his death. During George III's reign, Britain lost many of its colonies in North America, which became the United States. Also during his reign, the realms of Great Britain and Ireland were joined together to form the United Kingdom. In 1810, George III became dangerously ill and by 1811, he had become permanently insane and was locked away at Windsor Castle until his death. Parliament then passed the Regency Act 1811, to which the Royal Assent was granted by the Lords Commissioners, appointed under the same irregular procedure as was adopted in 1788. The Prince of Wales acted as Regent for the remainder of George III's life. While tremendously popular in Britain, George was hated by the rebellious American colonists. The United States Declaration of Independence held him personally responsible for the political problems faced by the United States. The Declaration does not blame either Parliament or the ministers, and exposure to the views expressed in the Declaration has led the American public to perceive George as a tyrant. This view is, at worst, a historical consequence of the political climate of the times, wherein the state of the King's governing powers and mental health were practically unknown by the general public, and even less so by the distant North American colonies ruled under his crown. Another factor that exacerbated American resentment was the King's failure to intercede personally on the colonists' behalf after the Olive Branch Petition. Many modern British historians also place primary blame for the loss of the colonies on George, largely because they attribute the Proclamation of Rebellion (which treated the colonies' complaints as acts of rebellion) to him personally. George's insanity is the subject of the film The Madness of King George (1994).

        War of 1812

      , n.d. n.d.. Four small chips of gray granite in a 19th century octagonal glass medicine bottle, about 3.5” tall. Sealed with a cork. Fine condition. From the John S. Reigart Collection of Historical American Relics.Inside the bottle is a 2” x 0.5” printed card: “At the northern end of Central Park, near / Eighth avenue, stands the old block-house. / Built originally as one of a chain of local / fortifications and outposts. It has come to be / known as Fort Fireman.”Fort Fireman was built in 1814-1815 on Bergen’s Hill, Brooklyn, on or near the site of Fort Box built in 1776. Fort Clinton, also built 1814-1815, was a stone fort in the northeast corner of Central Park. These chips of granite came from one of these New York War of 1812 fortifications.John S. Reigart was born in 1833 or 1834 in New York City where he resided for most of his life. By occupation, he was a bank clerk. During the mid and late 19th century Reigart assembled a comprehensive collection of relics from every period of America’s history. He was clearly aware of the importance of provenance of all the pieces in his collection and included detailed documentation. About ten years ago, Reigart’s collection was discovered in the estate of a deceased Connecticut book dealer.

        View of Sydney in New South Wales (Taken from Bell Mount)

      James Whittle & Richard Holmes Laurie, London 1814 - Engraving on paper, 290 x 430 mm; a good, well-inked impression. A lovely, early Sydney view: the city and Harbour is shown from the Bellevue Hill and Vaucluse area, looking westward. This fine engraving was published by Laurie and Whittle, well-known London publishers of maps and charts. In 1814 they prepared a 'Catalogue of Perspective Views Coloured for the Shew Glass or Diagonal Mirror'. This catalogue comprised topographical views from around the world and included just three engravings of the new settlement in New South Wales - this and one other of Sydney and one of Parramatta. All three prints were based on original watercolours prepared by John Eyre.Eyre originally prepared a drawing of this view for the colonial entrepreneur Absalom West, who published a series of engravings of the colony in 1813-14. In all West issued 24 views, of which 14 were after drawings by Eyre. John Eyre had arrived in the colony as a convict in 1801; following his pardon in 1804 he received various artistic commissions from Governors King, Bligh and Macquarie. However it is for the views of the east and west sides of Sydney Cove which were published as aquatints in David Mann's The Present Picture of New South Wales (1811), that Eyre is best known. Some light discolouration but generally fine.

        De la Monarchie française, depuis son établissement jusqu'à nos jours, ou Recherches sur les anciennes institutions françaises, leur progrès, leur décadence, et sur les causes qui ont amené la Révolution et ses diverses phases jusqu'à la déclaration d'Empire ; avec un supplément sur le gouvernement de Buonaparte, depuis ses commencements jusqu'à sa chute ; et sur le retour de la Maison de Bourbon.

      Paris, Nicolle, Égron et Gide fils 1814 - 3 vol. in-8, VIII-451 pp., 451 pp. et 432 pp., demi-veau prune, dos lisse orné de frises dorées, tranches marbrées (reliure de l'époque). Rares rousseurs. Très bon exemplaire. Cet ouvrage fut rédigé à l'initiative de Napoléon. En effet, Montlosier rentra en France après Brumaire et fut attaché par le Premier Consul au ministère des Affaires Étrangères et collabora au Bulletin de Paris. c'est l'Empereur qui lui demanda de rédiger une Histoire de la monarchie française qui ne fut publiée qu'en 1814. Personnage à part dans cette période où les girouettes s'épanouissent, Montlosier ne renie rien de son bonapartisme. Son histoire de la monarchie devient intéressante à l'approche de la période révolutionnaire sur laquelle il développe sa critique modérée mais ferme. Sur la noblesse, il défend ses droits historiques et se situe dans la lignée des Boulainvilliers, Dubos et Mably. Sur l'Empire, il loue les institutions mises en place par Napoléon ainsi que son audace.

        THE CLARION, & TENNESSEE STATE GAZETTE. VOL. VI. NASHVILLE (TEN.), TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER, 13 1814

      Nashville, 1814. Broadsheet, approximately 17 1/4 x 12 1/4 inches, printed in five columns. Previously folded. A few small separations and chips along old folds, lower right corner chipped, slightly affecting text. Tanning and dust soiling. Good. A significant and very scarce copy of an early Tennessee newspaper, announcing the death of Tennessee founding father James Robertson. "He has been variously described as the 'Father of Tennessee,' the 'Father of Middle Tennessee,' and the 'Founder of Nashville'....By 1771 [his] family had crossed the Blue Ridge mountains. They settled in the vicinity of Sycamore Shoals on the Watauga River, not far from present-day Johnson City, and Robertson immediately became active in the development of the first major settlement in what later became the state of Tennessee....After nearly a decade on the Watauga, Robertson migrated 200 miles westward to establish a settlement on the Cumberland River. He had explored the area as early as 1778, and in the spring of 1779 he returned to plant a crop of corn and establish the nucleus of 'Fort Nashborough'" - ANB. The paper, printed with black mourning borders, laments the loss of the Tennessee pioneer, and devotes four of the five columns on the recto to an account of his accomplishments. "The important & long faithful services of the deceased; the sacrifices he made of time and health, to promote our prosperity, require that we should not omit a tribute of respect to his memory at this distressing moment." The remaining space is devoted to news of developments in the War of 1812 and bulletins from abroad, and includes several advertisements and want notices. Chronicling America locates only one copy of this issue, at the Library of Congress.

        CAREY'S GENERAL ATLAS, IMPROVED AND ENLARGED: BEING A COLLECTION OF MAPS OF THE WORLD..

      Philadelphia: Published by M. Carey, 1814. 3 preliminary leaves and 58 sheets of maps (50 double-page). Maps outlined in color. Tall folio. Antique style half calf and marbled boards. Titlepage with significant repaired damage, about 20% in upper fore-edge corner supplied in facsimile. Two preliminary text leaves also with paper repairs. The maps all pristine, with original outline color, and very fine. Except for the text leaves, a beautiful copy of this important early American atlas. This is one of the earliest American atlases published in the United States. The first American atlas was issued in 1795, and was also published by Carey. That atlas contained only 21 maps, so the present 1814 atlas, with 58 maps, is much improved and expanded from the original effort. Most of the atlas is devoted to the United States and its territories, and incorporates the latest geographical knowledge available, by what was then one of the premier mapping firms in the United States. There are maps of virtually every state, including the North-Western, Michigan, Illinois and Indiana Territories. The western maps are particularly detailed, incorporating geographic information from recent explorations. The map of the whole North American continent and the excellent large detailed map of the United States and territories can lay claim to being the best available to that time. The other maps are of the West Indies, South America, Mexico, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and one of "Captain Cook's Discoveries" showing a large part of the North Pacific and as far south as the Hawaiian Islands. Wheat points out that the map of Missouri Territory was influenced by the recent explorations of Lewis and Clark: "Lewis and Clark influence is apparent on the Upper Missouri and also along the Columbia. Missouri Territory extends west to the Pacific Coast, its probable northern and southern boundaries being shown by colored dotted lines. The northern line runs easterly from Mt. Ranier and includes most of the Columbia watershed, thence north of the Missouri drainage and including that of the Assiniboin (with its large lake), thence east to Lake of the Woods and south to the head of the Mississippi, which then forms the eastern boundary. The southern line leaves the coast just north of F.S. Francisco (whose Bay is not shown), thence easterly and slightly north of the headwaters of the Rio Grande, following south along the ridge east of that stream, southeast to the head of the Colorado (of Texas) and down that stream to the Gulf of Mexico at St. Bernardo B. The Stat of Louisiana (admitted 1812) appears near the mouth of the Mississippi." PHILLIPS ATLASES 722. STREETER SALE 82. WHEAT TRANSMISSISSIPPI WEST 315.

FIRST EDITION 1814, 12mo, 130 x 107 mm, 5 x 4¼ inches, original drab thin card wraps, printed paper label on upper cover: "Harris's Cabinet " at top, "One Shilling Coloured" below with space between for handwritten title, the original ink had faded and a later owner has re-written the title over it, engraved title page and 14 of 15 engraved numbered leaves, each printed 1 side only, LACKING IS THE FINAL LEAF 15 AND THE LOWER COVER. The final leaf has been supplied in coloured facsimile and the lower cover neatly replaced at some time by a pink cover of the same period and weight. Each leaf has a large very nicely hand coloured copper engraving with an 8 line verse below telling the story. Jerry and Kitty court, get married and have a baby, then they tire of each other and decide to go travelling. Leaf 15 shows them on a boat and Jerry pushing his wife overboard to drown. This was probably considered not quite suitable for children by some parents, who thoughtfully removed and destroyed the leaf, although no doubt most children would have enjoyed the grim ending to the tale. Spine missing, label lightly browned, early name and date on upper cover, some early writing on inside of cover and blank side of title page (title is on verso of first leaf), last line of verse on page 4 is trimmed off, contents clean and bright. A defective copy of an uncommon pretty hand coloured juvenile book (1 leaf in facsimile, lower cover replaced as noted). Moon No. 169; Osborne Volume I, page 58.
