        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.

        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.

        Elements of Political Science.

      Edinburgh: James Ballantyne and Co.,, 1814. In Three Volumes. 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. 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).

        [Hand-Colored] Glances at Character

      London: Printed by Whittingham and Rowland, Goswell Street; For John Carr, 56, Paternoster-Row, 1814. Crown 8vo: viii,158,[2]pp, with 8 delicately hand-colored aquatints, including the frontispiece. Complete with half-title and two pages of publisher's advertisements. (In every copy we've seen, plate no. 5, often described as bound out of sequence, is placed between plates nos. 7 and 8, and according to the text, that is where it belongs.) Later full tan calf, covers framed with French fillet and gilt sunburst ornament to corners, richly gilt spine in six compartments divided by raised bands, red morocco lettering piece gilt, gilt turn-ins, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. An excellent, wide-margined, hand-colored example, mild offsetting from plates, a few stray spots, else contents clean, bright and handsomely bound. From the collection of bibliophile Brent Gration-Maxfield, with his characteristic manuscript ex-libris and tidy bibliographic notes ("collated perfect," "only blemish is a slight mark on the half title"). Gration-Maxfield library was dispersed in a series of sales by Sotheby's in the early 1980s. Very scarce in commerce, not in Hardie, Abbey, or Tooley, and only J. Clark, not this title, mentioned in Prideaux. Halkett & Laing (2nd ed.) II, p. 378. NUC pre-1956, 201:609. ¶ A fine example of this uncommon satirical depiction of various Regency-era character types and memes, in verse, among them, the "bounce" (a bullying braggart), the country physician, the slave to fashion, the scholar of dead languages, and old maids and young lovers. The author remains anonymous and almost nothing is known of the artist, J. Clarke (who signs his plates "I. Clarke"), an engraver and illustrator active in the first third of the nineteenth century. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Fine.

        Consideration of Various Points of Analysis. Offprint from Philosophical Transactions.

      London: printed by W. Bulmer [for the Royal Society], 1814. Very rare separately-paginated offprint of Herschel's account of the 'calculus of operations,' which formed a major part of the programme of reform promoted by the group of Cambridge mathematicians (which included Babbage and Herschel) who called themselves the 'Analytical Society.' Koppelman (p. 156) has argued that the reason that the most important contributions of British mathematicians in the first half of the nineteenth century were to abstract algebra "was a direct response of the English to a specific aspect of the work of Continental analysts which became accessible to them. The subject came to be called, by the English, the calculus of operations." The most important such contributions were made by Duncan Gregory and George Boole. "This technique - the calculus of operations, as it was known - was also important to Boole's early mathematical research on the calculus of finite differences; and Boole's knowledge of Gregory's defence of the technique underlies his algebraic analysis of logic in [Mathematical analysis of logic (1847)]" (Ewald, From Kant to Hilbert, p. 322). OCLC lists one copy only (Northwestern). Provenance: Marcus Nathan Adler (bookplate). Adler (1803-1890) was the Orthodox Chief Rabbi of the British Empire from 1845 until his death, probably the most prominent nineteenth-century rabbi in the English-speaking world. See image of bookplate at http://www.virtualjudaica.com/Item/27334/Ex-Libris_of_Rabbi_Marcus_Nathan_Adler "The calculus of operations involved separating symbols of operation - such as differentiation - from symbols of quantity. Using general properties of algebra, the separated symbols of operation were then simplified in order to find a solution to an analytical problem or theorem... "[In 1812] a group of Cambridge reformers, who called themselves the Analytical Society, established their own journal for the diffusion of what they saw as a radical new approach to mathematics. This approach was an algebraically based conception of the calculus developed by Lagrange that emphasized series expansions instead of limits or infinitesimals. With this new conception, Analytical Society members saw themselves as leaving behind the fluxional, Newtonian notation that had been tenaciously adhered to throughout the eighteenth century in Britain. At the same time, the Society felt that it could connect with a "century of foreign improvement" in the calculus... "Facing the graduation of almost all its members and with few new recruits, the Analytical Society disintegrated in 1814. After the Society's demise, Babbage, Herschel and Peacock continued to write reform-minded publications. For example, in 1816, the three published an English translation of Silvestre Lacroix's Calcul différential et intégral as a way to bring Lacroix's formulation of the differential calculus to Cambridge and also as a platform from which to promote their own allegiance to the Lagrangian development of the calculus. In this as well as in a series of articles by Herschel from 1814 to 1822, the calculus of operations was ever present. For example, in his 1814 Philosophical Transactions article, "Consideration of Various Points of Analysis," Herschel professed his belief in the fruitfulness of the method of separating the symbols of operation from those of quantity. He explained that "[t]his method I have, perhaps, extended and carried somewhat farther than has hitherto been customary; but, I trust, without losing sight of its grand and ultimate object, the union of extreme generality with conciseness of expression [p. 12]" (Despaux, pp. 52-4). S.E. Despeaux, "Very Full of Symbols," in Episodes in the History of Modern Algebra (1800-1950), (2007), ed. by J.J. Gray & K.H. Parshall; E. Koppelman, 'The calculus of operations and the rise of abstract algebra,' Archive for the History of Exact Sciences, Vol. 8 (1971), pp. 155-242. 4to (272 x 213 mm), pp. [ii], [1] 2-29 (the last mis-paginated '33' and corrected in ink manuscript).

      2 vols., 4to., pp.[ii], vi, 148 + 122 plates; [ii], 149-381, [i] + 108 plates. Extra illustrated. Sporadic foxing especially affecting a few plates towards the rear of vol.II, occasional offset toning from a plate to the adjacent text (including the title-page to vol.I), vol.II pp.269-70 has a long horizontal paper flaw affecting the first line of text on each page. Scarlet straight-grain morocco sympathetically rebacked. Raised bands to spines with gilt tooling and titles, gilt and blind borders to each board, a.e.g., gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers. Endcaps, joints and edges rubbed, corners a little worn, endpapers split at hinges but binding completely sound. A very good, attractively-bound and extra illustrated set.The 'Advertisement to the Present Edition' states that (the previous quarto edition being out of print and the folio 'extremely rare') the publisher was 'induced' to create this new edition of 175 quarto copies and 25 folios. The new production features an appendix and index not found in the earlier edition, and was produced without illustrations. However, 'for the purchasers who choose to amuse themselves in the pursuit of illustrating [...] an assortment of some hundreds of portraits, views, medals, and historical prints, may be had, together or separate, at the Publisher's.' The original owner of this copy has pursued illustrating to the tune of 230 plates in total, mostly portraits and architectural views but with some medals and other subjects, including a folding plate with a colour depiction of the Great Fire.

        The Heroine, or Adventures of Cherubina.

      [printed by B. Clarke] for Henry Colburn, and sold by George Goldie, Edinburgh, and John Cumming, Dublin, London 1814 - Second Edition, with Considerable Additions and Alterations. Three volumes. 12mo. [177 x 105 x 58 mm]. xxiii, [ii], 26-235 pp; [2]ff, 258, [2] pp; [2]ff, 266 pp. Original bindings of purple cloth, the spine lettered in gilt on a red roan label, plain endleaves, uncut edges. (Spines faded, headcaps slightly bumped and frayed). With the half-titles in each volume, a leaf of advertisements at the end of vol. 2 and an extract from another book attached to the preceeding leaf by a small safety-pin. There is some foxing or spotting and a few minor stains but it is a very good copy with uncut edges of varying dimensions. The bindings are clearly original but must date from a few years after publication as cloth bindings were pioneered by William Pickering in 1821-22. First published in 1813 as The Heroine, or Adventures of a Fair Romance Reader, a third edition followed in 1815 and the first American edition was published in Philadelphia in the same year. A popular satire of Gothic novels, which opens with Cherubina complaining that she is too happy to be a heroine: "For me, there is no hope whatever of being reduced to despair. I am condemned to waste my health, bloom and youth, in a series of uninterrupted prosperity . I am anxious to suffer present sorrow, in order to secure future felicity". Jane Austen read the book, and wrote to her sister Cassandra on 2/3 March 1814: "I have torn through the 3d vol. of the Heroine, & do not think it falls off. It is a delightful burlesque, particularly on the Radcliffe style". It was described in The Biographical Dictionary of the Living Authors of Great Britain and Ireland (1816) as "not inferior in wit and humour to Tristram Shandy, and in point of plot and interest infinitely beyond Don Quixote". With a contemporary ink signature of a lady on the half-titles and later signature of H. Alder Barrett on front pastedowns.

        Historia della sollevatione de Fermani et morte di monsignor Uberto Maria Visconte descritta da [..] l'Asceso Accademico Avvivato.

      Libro manoscritto in-4° (cm. 20), legatura coeva in cartonato (lievi usure e restauri); cc. nn. [80] [2 b..] in buono stato, in barbe. Inedito racconto di una torbida vicenda politico-economica marchigiana di metà Seicento, l'assassinio del vicegovernatore di Fermo, il milanese di nomina pontificia Uberto Visconti che aveva calmierato il costo del grano. «Ciò piaceva ai poveri, ma dispiaceva ai ricchi, perché non potevano vendere le loro derrate al prezzo ingordo che desideravano. Pertanto cominciarono a spargere nel popolo voce che i prezzi si tenevano bassi non per altro che per farne grossissime incette, poi mandandole fuori di Stato, guadagnarvi su grandissime somme. [..]. Il popolo che più spesso crede a' suoi nemici che a' suoi amici, si risentì: delle male voglie nascevano nel paese» [C. Botta. Storia d'Italia continuata da quella del Guicciardini sino al 1814. Parigi Braudry 1832, t.V, p.386]. Alcuni popolani che pugnalarono il vicegovernatore finirono impiccati, mentre i nobili che avevano armato il popolo si resero irreperibili e sopravvissero, addossando con questo scritto del concittadino Raccamadori - all'epoca mai pubblicato e circolante manoscritto - tutte le responsabilità allo stesso Visconti (vulgata ancora sostenuta dall'aristocrazia locale fino al XIX secolo). Questa nostra trascrizione della prima ora è firmata Felice Antonio Amato [c.80]. Cfr. Y-M. Bercé. La sommossa di Fermo del 1648. Fermo, Andrea Livi editore, 2007. [LEGATO CON:] Un altra instruttione alquanto differente [..] di cc. nn. 10 [2], cerimoniale per la visita di ambasciatori regi, cardinali, etc. e concistoro. «Circa il fermare la carozza..» [p.3]. Da studiare. Interessante e in buono stato.
