        Picturesque Representations of the Dress and Manners of the Russians Illustrated by Sixty-Four Coloured Engravings, with Descriptions

      James Goodwin, London - 4to, 9.5 by 7 inches, 24 by 17 cm. 64 plates, each accompanied by a page or two of description (on separate leaves). Colas 2358. This is derived from the same title published by John Murray in 1814, which itself was based closely on the work published by Miller in 1803 and the plates of Georgi from the 1770s (Colas 1223). Notwithstanding the derivative nature of the plates, as hand-colored stipple prints they are exquisite, with color that to this day springs off the page and delights. Leather on spine is dried out and rubbed by extremities. Rubbing of gutter areas. Boards' leather still healthy. Binding is tight, and notwithstanding some minor scattered soiling of leaves, text and plates overall quite clean and fresh. Gilt foreedges.

        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.

        A VOYAGE TO TERRA AUSTRALIS, UNDERTAKEN FOR THE PURPOSE OF COMPLETING THE DISCOVERY OF THAT VAST COUNTRY, AND PROSECUTED IN THE YEARS 1801, 1802, AND 1803, IN HIS MAJESTY'S SHIP THE INVESTIGATOR AND SUBSEQUENTLY IN THE ARMED VESSEL PORPOISE AND CUMBERLAND SCHOONER

      London: W. Bulmer and Co. for G. and W. Nicol, 1814.. Two large quarto text volumes, 12 x 9 1/4 inches. Nine engraved plates by J. Byrne, John Pye, W. Woolnoth, I. Scott, Edward Finden, and S. Middiman after William Westall. Folio atlas, 27 1/4 x 19 3/4 inches. Mounted on guards throughout, sixteen engraved maps (ten double-page), two double- page plates of coastal profiles, and ten botanical plates by Elz. Byrne (three), F. Sansom (four), John Pye (one), and two unsigned, all after Ferdinand Bauer. Expertly bound to style in diced russia, covers with borders in gilt and blind, spines gilt in compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second and fourth (text) or second and fifth (atlas) compartments, the others with decorative repeat pattern in gilt. Text volumes: Half titles lacking. Some unobtrusive spotting on plates. Atlas: Map numbered XIV shaved close at lower margin. Provenance: Henry Perkins (of Springfield, Surrey, armorial bookplate in atlas volume). A fine set of the first edition of the account of the first circumnavigation of Australia ("an enlightening and fascinating story of brilliant navigation and discovery" [ADNB]). 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.

        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. But when deluded men advance sentiments of resistance and rebellion to the Union, and talk of their

        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.

      Paris, Antoine-Augustin Renouard 1814 - in-8, [4]-XV-420 pp., demi-veau cerise, dos lisse orné de filets et larges fleurons dorés, tranches marbrées (reliure de l'époque). Bel exemplaire. 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.

        [1] An inquiry into the nature and progress of rent, and the principles by which it is regulated

      London: T. Cadell, W. Davies, J. Hatchard,, 1814. London: John Murray, 1815; [bound with, 2:] — Observations on the effects of the corn laws, and of a rise or fall in the price of corn on the agriculture and general wealth of the country. London: J. Johnson and Co., 1814; [and, 3:] — The grounds of an opinion on the policy of restricting the importation of foreign corn; intended as an appendix to "Observations on the corn laws." London: John Murray and J. Johnson and Co., 1815; [and, 4:] [ANON] Considerations upon the corn bill; suggested by a recent declaration from high authority … Bath: Richard Cruttwell; London, Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, and J. Ridgway, 1815; [and, 5:] ROSE, George. The speech of the right Hon. George Rose, in the House of Commons, on the 5th of May 1814, on the subject of the corn laws. 5 works bound together in one volume, octavo (208 x 127 mm). Contemporary sprinkled half calf, patterned paper sides, smooth spine with double gilt rules, dark green morocco label, marbled edges. Housed in a black cloth flat-back solander box. Malthus [1], first two leaves trimmed 3mm shorter at foot; Malthus [3] bound without the terminal advertisement leaves. Contemporary ink autograph contents to the front free endpaper, and contemporary ownership inscriptions to the titles of four of the pamphlets, excluding the Observations, occasional pencil annotations. Extremities lightly rubbed; hinges cracked but holding firm, some light spotting throughout, more pronounced on the titles, otherwise very good copies. First editions of five contemporary pamphlets, including three Malthus first editions. The marginal concept of rent, an essential factor in the development of political economy, and one lacking from Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations, had first appeared as early as 1777 in James Anderson's Enquiry into the Nature of the Corn-laws. But it was not until the intense public debate over the Corn Laws at the end of the Napoleonic Wars that this advanced theory of rent was rediscovered and widely credited with its true significance. The Corn-Law debate intensified in 1814 with the publication of major Parliamentary committee reports. It reached its height during the parliamentary debates on legislation between 17 February and 10 March 1815 (when the new Corn Law was passed). It was in response to these parliamentary reports, and in anticipation of the legislative debate, that Malthus, amongst many others (including Ricardo, Sir Edward West, and Robert Torrens), prepared his works. The Commons report, delivered on 26 July 1814, was politically decisive, advancing definite conclusions about its main objects of inquiry: the increases in the extent, intensity and cost of domestic cultivation effected by wartime agricultural development, and the increase in the price of grain that would be necessary to remunerate the grower. The report found that on average the cost of agricultural production, including rent, had doubled over the last twenty years, alongside new, very high levels of capital investment in agriculture. Boldly it asserted a specific price as the minimum remuneration: the notorious 80 shillings per quarter. This laid the ground for the Corn Law of 1815, and provided a direct spur to the theorists of rent. Elements of a mature theory of rent are evident in Malthus's 1814 Observations on the Effects of the Corn Laws, but it was not until February 1815 that the really crucial works appeared. Piero Sraffa has established the following chronology of publication (with reference to publishers' newspaper advertisements): Malthus's Inquiry into the Nature and Progress of Rent was issued on 3 February 1815, and his Grounds of an Opinion was issued on the 10th. "All the pamphlets in question have in common the principle of rent based on diminishing returns from the extension of cultivation to inferior qualities of land; and also from the employment of successive portions of capital on the same land" (Sraffa, Works and Correspondence of David Ricardo, IV, p. 6). "The rent of land", writes Malthus, "may be defined to be that portion of the value of the whole produce which remains to the owner of the land, after all the outgoings belonging to its cultivation, of whatever kind, have been paid, including the profits of the capital employed, estimated according to the usual and ordinary rate of the profits of agricultural stock at the time being" (Inquiry, pp. [1]-2).

Historical BackgroundWilliam Ellery (1727-1820) was a Rhode Island politician who, as a member of the Second Continental Congress (1776-1785), signed the Declaration of Independence. He was born in Newport and educated at Harvard, graduating at the age of 15. He worked as a merchant, and then as a customs collector, before finally entering law and politics, becoming active in the Rhode Island Sons of Liberty. After his political service during the Revolution, Ellery was appointed as the first customs collector in Newport under the Constitution, earning a sizeable income, and compiling a substantial library. Ellery also became an abolitionist in his later years.Ellery's daughter, Lucy, married William Channing, a prominent Newport attorney. Their son, William Ellery Channing, born in 1780, became an influential theologian and Unitarian leader. According to historian William Fowler, William Ellery Channing frequently "sent Ellery copies of The Christian Disciple, a liberal Christian periodical," for his edification.ReferencesFowler, William.
