        Traité des maladies chirurgicales et des opérations qui leur conviennent.

      Paris, l¿Auteur & Migneret, 1814-26. - 11 vol. in-8; T.I : XVI, 463 pp.; T.II : (4), 449 pp.; T.III : (4), 638 pp.,7 pl. dépl. h.t. ; T.IV : (4), 628 pp.; T.V : (4), 622 pp.; T.VI : (4), 480 pp.; T.VII : (4), 588 pp.; T.VIII : (4), 6, 2, 559 pp.; T.IX : (4), 512 pp.; T.X : (4), 606 pp.; T.XI : (4), 384 pp., demi-basane marron de l¿époque, dos frottés, très bon état intérieur. Edition originale, assez rare complète, de cet ouvrage monumental, dont la publication s¿étala sur 13 années. Plus exhaustif que novateur, ce traité fut l¿ouvrage de référence pendant de nombreuses années, exposant l¿ensemble des connaissances chirurgicales de l¿époque, sur le plan clinique et thérapeutique. Il eut un grand succès. On y trouve beaucoup de détails, que l¿on aurait du mal à trouver ailleurs. Les principales contributions personnelles de Boyer concernent l¿hydrocèle et la fistule anale. Boyer a de plus vulgarisé l¿extension continue dans le traitement des fractures. Il reconnaît aussi, comme Delpech, que le « mal de Pott » est occasionné par le « vice scrofuleux ». Verneuil, qui fut l¿un des chirurgiens les plus érudits du XIXe siècle, qualifie Boyer de « grand praticien » et considère ce traité comme « un immortel ouvrage ». Cet ouvrage comporte 7 planches dépliantes (numérotées de 1 à 6, avec une planche 3 bis). Il se termine par une importante table analytique générale. Né à Uzerche (Corrèze), Alexis Boyer (1760-1833) étudia la médecine à Paris, où il fut l¿élève de Louis, de Desault, de Sabatier. Il devint professeur de chirurgie à Paris, et chirurgien en chef de la Charité. Il fut chirurgien consultant de Louis XVIII, de Charles X et de Louis-Philippe. C¿était un chirurgien doué de bons sens et méfiant à l¿égard des nouveautés. Il devint membre de l¿Académie de médecine et de l¿Académie des sciences. Napoléon lui donna le titre de baron de l¿Empire. Son fils devint comme lui chirurgien de la Charité. Billings, p. 93 : ¿His Traité des maladies chirurgicales (11 vol., 1814-26) is a practical system of surgery, the most complete of its kind then in existence, and for many years it remained the highest authority in this branch of medical literature. His chief contributions to practical surgery were his descriptions of the painful crepitation of tendons, of translucency of the tumor as diagnostic of hydrocele, of bleeding fungous tumors, and of the complications of fissure of the anus. His system is characterized by Malgaigne as a summary of the works and opinions of the French Academy of Surgery, which is no doubt correct.¿ [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Flower Study III

      0 - This watercolor on paper is from a collection of watercolors and drawings that depicts the natural history (flora and fauna) of Guiana, dating to the early 19th century. The collection appears to pre-date the expeditions of Sir Robert Hermann Schomburgk, a German-born explorer for Great Britain who executed geographical, ethnological and botanical studies in various parts of the world in the 1830s and 40s. He traveled to South America, the West Indies, the Dominican Republic and Thailand. Fragments of a manuscript text accompanied these unsigned works of art, suggesting an English author with Guyanese subject matter. Important to note, the colonies of Berbice and the United Colony of Demerara and Essquibo were ceded to Britain in 1814, and unified as British Guiana in 1831. 9 x 13.25 in

        Memoire sur l'Organisation des Plantes.

      . Verh. Teyler's Tweede Gen., 18. - Te Haarlem, bij. J.J. Beets, 1814.- A Harlem chez J.J.Beets, (1812), 4°, XXI, (1), 345 pp., and 113 desine par l'auteur Fig. on 22 fine bx J.L. v. Beek engraved plates, comtemp. card board; St.o.Tit.. First Edition, with the mostly missing serial title with the correct publication date, the title itself names only "qui a remporte le prix en MDCCCXII" of the "Memoire sur l'organisation des plantes ou reponse a la question physique proposee par la Societe teylerienne par laquelle on demande : Que l'on cherche a decider au moyen d'observations nouvelles, autant que par la comparaison de celles qui ont ete faites deja, ce qu'il y a d'incontestable dans ce que l'on a avance sur l'organisation des plantes, et specialement sur la structure, la difference et les fonctions de leurs tubes ou vaisseaux ; en indiquant tout a la fois avec precision ce qu'il y a encore ici d'indetermine ou de douteux ; et quels procedes ulterieurs on pourrait employer pour acquerir plus de lumiere a ces divers egards" - - Dietrich Georg Kieser "is of interest for three reasons: first, because although he was a German and a professor at Jena, the definitive statement of his position, the "Memoire sur l'organisation des plantes" was written in French; second, because he wrote a widely read textbook, in German, in 1815, the Elemente der Phytotomie; and third, because he is mentioned by Dumortier, the discoverer of binary fission, as one of the principal proponents of the view that cells arise from subcellular granules. The Memoire sur l'organisation des plantes was submitted as a prize essay for a competition organized by the Teylerian Society on the subject of plant fine structure, and especially on the tubes and vessels to be found in plants. Kieser's essay won the prize and became very well known. It begins with a detailed review of the work of Hooke, Malpighi, Grew, Leeuwenhoek, Du Hamel de Monceau, Hill, van Marum, Mustel, Hedwig, Senebier, Sprengel, Treviranus, Link, Rudolphi and Mirbel; and it is, in this respect, one of the most useful of nineteenth- century compendiums of botanical history. As for Kieser's own ideas on the organization of plants, he takes the view that 'Les plantes sont composees en grande partie de cellules, qui forment un tissu cellulaire.' ('Plants are com-posed in large part [that is, not entirely] of cells, which form a cellular tissue.') He believed that these cells arose from an infinity of tiny, transparent globules to be found in the sap. These globules were thought to enlarge, cohere and, as a result of external pressures, assume their final shape. In the Elemente der Phytotomie, he restated this view, and he laid emphasis on the conclusion that cells were indeed the fundamental subunits of plants. He regarded the cells of lower plants, which retained their original ellipsoidal shape, as the most primitive forms. In higher plants, however, the cells were forced by reciprocal pressures into a shape that he now defined more specifically as a dodecahedral rhombus. These pressures were said to obey strict mathematical laws, but how the forces were exerted and what mathematical laws they obeyed are not stated. Kieser's work was well known in France as well as in Germany, for his Memoire was readily accessible to French- speaking scientists, and his Elemente der Phytotomie was much quoted by their German counterparts. But Dumortier, whose work will be discussed in detail at a later stage, had no hesitation in dismissing the idea that cells originated in any kind of subcellular corpuscle, an idea that he associates principally with Treviranus and Kieser. - - The French contribution to these debates was characterized less by meticulous observation than by speculative inference; the German by a striking mixture of both. The Germans were undoubtedly right on a number of specific secondary issues; but neither side made much headway in their efforts to answer the fundamental question of how cells were generated. That had to await the advent of Dumortier. - - Dumortier categorically rejected all models of cell generation that rested on the notion that they were formed from granules or any other form of subcellular particle. As mentioned earlier, he selects Treviranus and Kieser as the principal proponents of such models. - - Mr Kieser's view is thus untenable. What's more, this view, as well as the one advanced by Mr Treviranus, is based on a hypothesis that is anything but proven - the idea that granules or globular particles can be transformed into cells. We believe that we can be quite certain on the strength of our own observations that this transformation never takes place and that starch grains as well as globular particles are entirely different entities from cells. On the other hand, the production within the cell of a midline partition fits in so well with the organization of the rest of the plant that it can hardly be denied.* -cf. Henry Harris, Ther Birth of the Cell, pp.45-46; 68 - - Dietrich Georg von Kieser (24 August 1779 - 11 October 1862) was a German physician born in Harburg. He studied medicine at the Universities of Würzburg and Göttingen, receiving his doctorate from the latter institution in 1804. For most of his career he was a professor at the University of Jena, where from 1824 to 1862 he served as a "full professor". Kieser was also a learned scholar of natural sciences. While working as a professor at the University of Jena, Kieser operated a private ophthalmology clinic from 1831 to 1847, and from 1847 until 1858 he was director of the Grand Ducal Mental Hospital. He was an advocate of balneology, and beginning in 1813 was a physician at the therapeutic spas at Heilbad Berka. - - Kieser was politically active throughout his career; in October-1817 with historian Heinrich Luden and philosophers Lorenz Oken and Jakob Friedrich Fries, he partook in the historic Wartburg Festival. With Adam von Eschenmayer (1768-1852) he published the 12-volume Archiv für den thierischen Magnetismus (Archive for Animal Magnetism). Also, a magnesium sulfate mineral known as kieserite is named after him.

        LES CHEFS-D'OEUVRE DE P. CORNEILLE

      Paris: P. Didot l'aîné, 1814. n. Hardcover. 210 x 165 mm (8 1/4 x 6 1/2"). Three volumes. SUPERB CONTEMPORARY DEEP BLUE POLISHED CALF BY THOUVENIN (stamp-signed in gilt at foot of spine of volume I), covers with triple gilt fillet border, central panel with large blind-stamped floral frame highlighted with gilt, raised bands, spine panels with delicate stippled and tooled cruciform ornament, gilt titling, turn-ins with cresting gilt roll, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. One gathering somewhat foxed, otherwise A SPLENDID SET IN PRISTINE CONDITION. This astonishingly well-preserved set of the masterworks of a great French tragedian epitomizes luxury, with attractively printed text on smooth, wide-margined paper and a flawless binding by a major French artisan. Our elegant binding is typical of the fine work produced by Joseph Thouvenin (1779-1834), the eldest of three bookbinder brothers. Ramsden describes Thouvenin as one of the three great French binders of the Empire and Restoration periods (Simier and Purgold are the others), and the Walters Art Gallery catalogue says that "in his heyday, . . . he was the giant among Paris bookbinders." Our binding was done in the latter part of the binder's career: according to the British Library Database of Bookbindings, the stamp-signed signature "R[ELIÉ] P[AR] THOUVENIN" appeared on works produced before 1820; afterwards, as here, the signature consisted only of the last name of the binder by itself. Thouvenin's fame in the lore of binding history was secured when he produced a celebrated retrospective binding for the bibliophile Charles Nodier in 1829. That volume established the term "fanfare" (taken from the book's title) to describe the distinctive elaborate all-over binding style employed by Nicolas and Clovis Ève and others in France during the last quarter of the 16th and first quarter of the 17th centuries (for a modern "fanfare" example, items #89 and 100 in this catalogue). Pierre Corneille (1606-84) was, with Molière and Racine, one of the three great playwrights of 17th century France. Published as part of Didot's series of important works of French literature, our set contains 11 of Corneille's best-known plays, including "Le Cid," a tragicomedy based on tales of the Medieval Spanish knight El Cid.

        Autograph Letter Signed ('Tho Foley') from Sir Thomas Foley to Sir Richard Hussey-Bickerton, with reference to the conveyance to England in the Royal Sovereign yacht of the Emperor of Russia and King of Prussia, following Napoleon's abdication.

      24 May. Place not stated. 1814 - 12mo, 4 pp. Bifolium, with mourning border. Thirty-eight lines. Text clear and complete. On aged and worn paper. The context of the letter is explained by a report in The Times of 2 May 1814, which states that, following Napoleon's abdication, 'The Royal Sovereign and Royal Charlotte yachts are to remain in the Downs, to be ready to sail for Calais for the reception of the Emperor ALEXANDER and the other illustrious personages who will shortly visit this country. The Duke of CLARENCE will act as Admiral of the fleet.' (See Times, 16 June 1814, for another report on the 'Imperial and Royal Visit'.) Foley begins the letter by stating that he is sorry to learn that Bickerton and his wife 'have been so unwell' since he left Portsmouth. (Foley has been one of a party staying with Bickerton in Portsmouth. See Times, 2 May 1814, which states that the court-marial of Vice-Admiral Stirling assembles the following day, with Bickerton as President, and Foley one of the three other members of the court.) Foley has been 'quite otherwise for the good cheer you so hospitably bestow'd on us has not been thrown away'. He 'never was better for years', and Byam Martin [Sir Thomas Byam Martin (1773-1854)] is similarly in 'better health for the visit made you'. He has not heard from 'Legge' [Admiral Sir Arthur Kaye Legge (1766-1835)]. They have 'had the Duke [of Cumberland] here since Wednesday last till yesterday when he went to Town but said he should be down again tomorrow, he has lived afloat'. He has 'dined twice onboard the Royal Sovereign yacht with him - he is mighty fond of the thing'. They 'dont expect the Emperor [Alexander of Russia] and King [of Prussia] till after the 30th'. Gives directions concerning a 'letter for Lord George Stuart'. Ends by passing on his wife Lady Lucy's best wishes to Bickerton and his wife. Small stamp in red at head of first page states that the item has been 'Selected from the Papers of the late Admiral Sir R. H. Bickerton'. Both Foley and Bickerton had served under Nelson: it was to Foley that Nelson is said to have made the celebrated comment about putting his telescope to his blind eye at the Battle of Copenhagen.

He will happily recommend her 'in the art which you possess to such perfection'. The delay in showing her his 'humble performances has occasioned the addition of another play'. TWO: 'Twickenham | July 29th.' 4 pp. He thanks her for the offer of her box. 'I am unequal to the exertion of going to a theatre, & have great trouble in getting into a carriage & going up & down stairs'.

Discusses the play, with regard to English, French and Greek dramatic practice. SIX: 'Friday'. 4 pp. He is pleased she and her husband like his 'Athaliah', and is now sending his translation of 'Saul', 'decidedly he best Italian tragedy, that stage being poor in dramas of that description'. He compares it to the other play. If she will allow him to 'hobble into your parlour on the ground floor', he will be happy to pay her a visit, 'after you have read Saul'. SEVEN: 'Saturday'. 2 pp. He is sending a 'thick volume', containing 'what you have already read, together with Saul [from Alfierie?] & Esther', the latter being 'dull & insipid'. He has 'taken more pains with it than with any because the original is the worst & the weakest'. EIGHT: 'June 9'. 3 pp. He discusses her visiting him, and him visiting her. He is 'glad you received any pleasure from my plays'. He discusses 'Esther'.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Berlin, 26. Dezember 1814.. 2 SS. 4to.. An seinen Vater mit Dank "für die vielen Beweise Ihres väterlichen Wohlwollens, dessen Sie meine Frau, während ihres letzten Aufenthalts in Radeberg, gewürdiget haben" und einer umständlichen Schilderung seiner augenblicklichen Beschäftigung: "Unter die mir aufgedrungenen Arbeiten [...] gehört, zum Beyspiel, die Ausfeilung der hier beiliegenden, Ihnen zum Eigenthum dargebothenen Gedichte, wofür mich der Herr Autor, nach zahllosen Conferenzen und mühsamen Umänderungen, mit sechs Flaschen Wein beschenkte. Wenig genug! Doch immer noch mehr, als ich bis jetzt für ein langes Gedicht erhielt, welches ich für einen Sohn des Königs, auf Verlangen seines Gouverneurs, verfaßte. Ich stellte das Honorar dem eigenen Ermessen anheim; es vergingen aber beynahe vier Wochen, ohne daß etwas erfolgte. Endlich ward Jemand an mich abgeschickt, gegen den ich mich bestimmt erklären sollte, was ich verlange. Ich forderte aus Bescheidenheit nur halb so viel, als ich mir dafür von einem Buchhändler hätte bezahlen lassen; aber auf diese Kleinigkeit erwarte ich schon seit mehreren Tagen vergebens! So geht es mir häufig, daß ich für Leute, die ich nicht durch abschlägige Antworten vor den Kopf stoßen will, umsonst arbeiten muß. Auch Moritz Zeller erbat sich neulich in dem ersten Briefe, den er an mich schrieb, ein Hochzeitgedicht, weil einer seiner Prinzipale heirathet. Ich erfüllte, wiewohl recht ungern, seine Bitte. Aber dergleichen unfruchtbare Zumuthungen stören mich in meinen Hauptarbeiten, von welchen ich lebe, gar zu oft, und ich werde daher bald den festen Entschluß fassen müssen, alle solche Anforderungen, sie mögen kommen von wem sie wollen, standhaft zurück zu weisen [...]".

        Flora Americae Septentrionalis; or a Systematic Arrangement and Description of the Plants of North America, Containing.Many New and Rare Species, Collected During Twelve Years Travels and Residence in that Country

      White, Cochrane and Co, London 1814 - Two volumes, pp xxxvi, 358; [359]-751, [6] ads. In a simple modern binding of brown cloth with leather spines; endpapers replaced. Although not a married set (at least, not recently), for unknown reasons Vol. I has been trimmed, while Vol. II has not. There is a quarter-inch discrepancy in height, and the plates of Vol. I are trimmed closer than one might like. Library stamps on both title pages; no other library markings. Signature of Rush Van Dyke, MD, dated 1840, on each title page. Bindings sound, text clean, complete with all 24 engraved plates (uncolored). "The most important work which had hitherto been published on the Botany of North America" (Rich II:17), this was the first published record of specimens gathered on the Lewis and Clark expedition and the first to include plants of the Pacific Northwest. Pursh (1774-1820) emigrated to the United States from Germany in 1799 to manage a botanical garden in Baltimore. Within a few years, he had secured a position collecting plants for American botanist Benjamin Smith Barton. In this capacity he made many collecting trips, "principally made on foot, the most appropriate way for attentive observation? traveling over an extent of more than three thousand miles each season, with no other companions than my dog and gun, frequently taking up my lodging in the midst of wild mountains and impenetrable forests, far remote from the habitations of men" (Preface). In addition to his own collecting, Pursh had access to the specimens others had collected for Barton, who had intended (but failed) to publish a book. In 1811, Pursh moved to England, where he gained access to the libraries and herbaria of about 40 European collectors, enabling him to complete his pioneering work. Sabin 66728.

The atlas is here in its most desirable form with the plates and maps unfolded and with the early "G. & W. Nicol, 1814" imprints. Wantrup rightly calls this work "the most outstanding book on the coastal navigation of Australia" and "the centrepiece of any collection of books dealing with Australian coastal discovery." Flinders sailed from England on July 18, 1801, and during the next two years he surveyed the entire south coast of Australia from Cape Leeuwin to Bass Strait, the east coast, and the Gulf of Carpentaria. He returned to Port Jackson in 1803, having completed the first circumnavigation of Australia. On the return journey Flinders was detained by the French in Mauritius for six and a half years and was not released until June 1810. He devoted the remainder of his life to the publication of this work, which was formally published one day before his death on July 19, 1814. It is a day-by-day record of the expedition and includes a lengthy introduction detailing earlier South Seas voyages and an appendix by Robert Brown, the botanist who accompanied the expedition. Flinders took great pains to insure the accuracy of the work and the charts contained in the atlas were used for navigation for over a century. The two volumes of text were originally published in both large-paper and normal issues: the present set is the normal issue. The atlas volume was also issued in two forms: "In the smaller form the plates...were folded and bound into a volume more comfortable in size with the text volumes. The larger form [as here] was issued as an elephant folio, in which the plates were left unfolded" (Wantrup). The earliest issues of the plates and maps in the atlas volume all have the imprint of the publishers G. & W. Nicol and are dated 1814 (as here). Subsequent issues include imprints with the Nicols' names removed and replaced with "Published as the act directs by Capt. Hurd R.N. Hydrographer to the Admiralty." FERGUSON 576. HILL 614. INGLETON 6487. NISSEN (BBI) 637. STAFLEU & COWAN I:1806. WANTRUP, pp.138-44.

        Flora Americae Septentrionalis; or a Systematic Arrangement and Description of the Plants of North America, Containing...Many New and Rare Species, Collected During Twelve Years Travels and Residence in that Country

      London: White, Cochrane and Co, 1814. First Edition. Hardcover. Good+. Two volumes, pp xxxvi, 358; [359]-751, [6] ads. In a simple modern binding of brown cloth with leather spines; endpapers replaced. Although not a married set (at least, not recently), for unknown reasons Vol. I has been trimmed, while Vol. II has not. There is a quarter-inch discrepancy in height, and the plates of Vol. I are trimmed closer than one might like. Library stamps on both title pages; no other library markings. Signature of Rush Van Dyke, MD, dated 1840, on each title page. Bindings sound, text clean, complete with all 24 engraved plates (uncolored). "The most important work which had hitherto been published on the Botany of North America" (Rich II:17), this was the first published record of specimens gathered on the Lewis and Clark expedition and the first to include plants of the Pacific Northwest. Pursh (1774-1820) emigrated to the United States from Germany in 1799 to manage a botanical garden in Baltimore. Within a few years, he had secured a position collecting plants for American botanist Benjamin Smith Barton. In this capacity he made many collecting trips, "principally made on foot, the most appropriate way for attentive observation…. traveling over an extent of more than three thousand miles each season, with no other companions than my dog and gun, frequently taking up my lodging in the midst of wild mountains and impenetrable forests, far remote from the habitations of men" (Preface). In addition to his own collecting, Pursh had access to the specimens others had collected for Barton, who had intended (but failed) to publish a book. In 1811, Pursh moved to England, where he gained access to the libraries and herbaria of about 40 European collectors, enabling him to complete his pioneering work. Sabin 66728.

        Mesembryanthemum Carinatum

      [Paris 1814 - A fine plate from Bonpland's "Description des Plantes Rares Cultivées á Malmaison et á Navarre" considered to be the apex of Redouté's achievement as a botanical illustrator. Throughout his career, Redouté enjoyed royal patronage, beginning with Marie Antoinette and including the Empress Josephine, for whom he served as official painter. After Empress Josephine's divorce from Napoleon, Navarre became her principal residence, and she sought to recreate the horticultural splendours of Malmaison. This was the last work for which Redoute enjoyed her patronage, yet with the perfection of his stipple process, the illustrations are perfect both scientifically and artistically, and are a fitting close to the great era of Napoleonic works in which all available resources were used to document new and rare species. Bonpland, who provided the text for the work, was the botanist who accompanied von Humboldt in his explorations of South America and had succeeded Ventenat as botanist to Josephine. Nissen BBI 207, Dunthorne 240; MacPhail 13; Stafleu TL2 648. Stipple engraving, printed in colour and finished by hand, engraved by Allais. Very good condition with the exception of a tiny loss at upper right corner.

        Festoons of Fancy, Consisting of Compositions Amatory, Sentimental and Humorous, in Verse and Prose -

      Louisville, Kentucky: From the Press of William Farquar, 1814 - "Festoons of Fancy is not only the first important book of poems printed west of the Alleghenies, but it is almost certainly the first book of any kind printed in Louisville" (Streeter). Littell (1768-1824) was a lawyer and author who, after a stint in western Pennsylvania, settled in Kentucky in 1801. He published several import law reference works that were early efforts to codify Kentucky law. His satires, Epistles of William, Surnamed Littell, to the People of the Realm of Kentucky (1806) and Festoons of Fancy (which includes the earlier work), were not well-received at the time, and were seen as "proofs of his eccentricity, frivolousness, and immorality. Today they are acknowledged as important first examples of frontier humor" (DAB) First edition. 12mo. [2], 180 pp. (pages 3-10, 13-18 and 179 in facsimile).

        An unusual Massachusetts paper denouncing the Hartford Convention: "Three States, whose recourses, and exports consist only of potatoes, mules and grindstones, to think of giving laws to the Union, is so truly ridiculous, that we can scarcely refrain from laughing when we think of the project..."

      The November 23, 1814 edition of the Boston Patriot, (Published by Davis C. Ballard), 4pp, 14.5" x 19.75". Light chipping and tears at margins, light toning from dampstains. An unusual issue in that the front page of this decidedly Democratic organ bears a complex engraving lampooning the recently-called Hartford Convention entitled, "COMPARATIVE VIEW, of the AMERICAN CONFEDERATION with the Hartford Convention States." At once side we find the "American Union!!!" topped by an eagle and listing the American states and territories (save for three). To the right we find Massahusetts, Connectciut, and Rhode Island under the banner of the "HARTFORD CONVENTION" which is topped by a crown emblazoned with the words, "DIGNITY" and not so subtlety styled as a "BRITISH UNION." The article reads, in very small part: "It is a painful task to be obliged to expose the weakness of our own native State.

        War of 1812 - Militia Order Book Pages - 1814-1815

      Virginia, 1814. Leaves. Very Good. Leaves. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Very nice shape; light wear and toning. Disbound. Eight consecutive leaves (15 pages of text) from an order book of the 2nd Elite Corps of the Virginia Militia from September-October 1814. Most of the entries are records of courts martial (some very interesting) for offenses such as being drunk on guard, riotous conduct, beating other soldiers, and abusing (cursing) other soldiers. The sentences are equally interesting and include hard labor, standing in the stocks, and loss of whiskey rations. There are unit orders posted in the pages as well; in the most important of them, the Commander decries the behavior of the units' soldiers and inattention of its officers. One leaf (two pages) from an order book of the 2nd Virginia Militia Regiment from February 1815. One page of the leaf contains two tables; one is a chart to determine how much forage was required to feed the regiment's fourteen horses, and the other is a morning report. The other page of the leaf contains an important detailed regimental order disbanding the unit and directing disposition of its personnel and equipment.

Unique édition de ce qui devait former une grande description de l'Angleterre en plusieurs volumes (d'où la mention de Fin du premier volume, avant la table) ; mais seul celui-ci vit le jour. La date d'édition est tout sauf anodine : en 1814, le Royaume-Uni, qui apparaît déjà comme le grand vainqueur de l'affrontement européen initié dès 1792, recommence à faire figure de modèle politique, social et économique pour une partie des élites françaises opposées à l'absolutisme napoléonien comme à l'"anarchie" révolutionnaire.
