      Philadelphia: Published by G.E. Blake, [1814].. [published with:] THE BATTLE OF THE WABASH. A PATRIOT SONG, WRITTEN BY JOSEPH HUTTON, TO THE FAVOURITE AIR OF ANACREON IN HEAVEN. [3]pp. Folio. Dbd. Tanned, dampstain in upper margin. Good. In a brown half morocco and cloth box. The rare second edition of "The Star Spangled Banner," the national anthem of the United States, in music form. Here, all four verses of Francis Scott Key's immortal poem are printed on the third page. It is printed with a song originally published in 1811, "The Battle of the Wabash," written to commemorate the Battle of Tippecanoe. That song, as well as "The Star Spangled Banner," were meant to be sung to the tune of "Anacreon in Heaven," also known as the "Anacreontic Ode." This, therefore, is the first appearance of Key's lyrics, together with the music to which it was meant to be sung. As Dichter & Shapiro point out, this printing is also "the only appearance known of Francis Scott Key's immortal song together with the words of the 'Anacreontic Ode.'" The present printing follows only a Baltimore edition by Carrs Music Store, which is believed to have been issued before November 18, 1814, and possibly before October 19 (see Filby & Howard). Francis Scott Key, a Baltimore lawyer, spent the night of September 13-14, 1814, detained on a British ship in Baltimore harbor. That night, Key witnessed the British flotilla bombard Fort McHenry, an American stronghold in the harbor. From the outset of the battle a large American flag could be seen flying over the fort, but by the end the Stars and Stripes was nowhere to be seen. At dawn, the flag was seen once again, showing that Fort McHenry had not been taken by the British, and inspiring Key to write the lyrics that he initially called "Defence of Fort M'Henry." Key meant for the lyrics to be sung to the tune of a popular song of the day, the "Anacreontic Ode," also known as "To Anacreon in Heaven," by British composer John Stafford Smith. Key's lyrics first circulated as a handbill, and on September 20 were printed in a Baltimore newspaper. It soon became known as "The Star Spangled Banner," and was performed by Hardinge's theatre troupe in Baltimore on October 18, 1814. As is noted in the title, the song was "sung with great applause by Mr. Hardinge, at the Theatre Baltimore," suggesting that this publication dates to late 1814. Both this Philadelphia printing of "The Star Spangled Banner" and the Baltimore printing that precedes it are very rare. Two copies of the Baltimore printing have appeared at auction since 1967: the Streeter copy, which brought $23,000 in that year, and a copy that sold at Christie's in 2008 for $506,500. In that same time span, only one copy of this Philadelphia printing sold at auction, in 2002, when a copy at Christie's brought $15,600. OCLC and Filby & Howard together locate a total of only eleven copies of this Philadelphia printing. A rare and early printing of "The Star Spangled Banner," our national anthem, which stands second only to the flag as a symbol of the nation. DICHTER & SHAPIRO, p.36. FILBY &HOWARD, S8. LEVY & FULD, p.245. Muller, THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER, pp.52- 57. WOLF 8329A. BAL, p.247. OCLC 3823049.

        Essai Philosophique sur les Probabilites

      Paris, 1814. Second Enlarged Edition. Original pink marbled wrappers. Fine with some occasional spotty foxing. 8vo.,This Essai is the the separately issued introduction to the second edition of Laplace's, Theorie Analytique ... first published in 1812 and appearing with the important supplements and addenda as the second edition in 1814. Laplace's biographer in the DSB notes that this book has had a longer life and greater readership than any other work by the author. ' The reason for its continuing - indeed, its growing - success has clearly been the importance that probablility, statistics, and stochastic analysis have increasingly assumed in science, social science .... Inevitably, Laplace's technical writings have come to have the same sort of relation to the later development of the discipline of probability that, for example Newton's Principia matematica had to the later science of mechanics. ' DSB XV, 374; see Stigler for app. citations.

Though principally known as a naturalist, having produced the important works "British Zoology" and "History of Quadrupeds," Pennant's posthumous book on the history of London was also quite popular, going through a number of editions.

        Travels In The Caucasus And Georgia: Performed In The Years 1806 And 1808, By Command Of The Russian Government

      Great reading! Very rare First English Edition, published in 1814 by Henry Colburn, London. First published in German, then this English edition, then French. This book has definitely been read and enjoyed many times but still presents a handsome façade. Large book, 421 pages, a newer leather spine laid over original 3/4 leather with marbled boards, new endpapers. Original part of the cover shows a lot of wear, scuffing, and fading, older leather corners rubbed and chipped. Spine looks almost new. Small library stamps on title and copyright pages. Title page has a couple tears that have been patched with pieces of clear tape, title page and about thirty following pages have creases, light foxing and occasional mold spots on pages, some light age-toning, p. 295 has a tear patched with paper. All pages very readable. A good, solid very rare copy of this classic ethnographic and linguistic exploration of a very intriguing part of the world. Julius Heinrich Klaproth (1783?"1835) was a German linguist, historian, ethnographer, author, orientalist and explorer. As a scholar, he is credited along with Jean-Pierre Abel-Rémusat, with being instrumental in turning East Asian Studies into scientific disciplines with critical methods.

        Les Voyages de Sind-Bad le Marin et les Ruses des Femmes, Contes Arabes. Traduction litterale, accompagnee du texte et de notes.

      Paris, de l'Imprimerie Royale, 1814.. 12mo. XXX, 161 pp. 113 pp. Full contemporary English calf, boards with decorative gilt surround, banded spine with black morocco title label and gilt tool in six compartments, board edges and turn-ins with additional gilt decoration, marbled edges and endpapers.. First edition of "Sind-Bad" and the first independent printing of any part of the Arabian Nights in Arabic. Although traditionally included in the corpus of the 1001 Nights (Alf Layla wa Layla) as told by Scheherazade, it is thought that the series of voyages that make up the voyages of Sinbad have older and separate origins, incorporating elements of Homer, Panchatantra, other Persian, Arab and Indian literary material as well as historical material relating to trade and navigation. Set traditionally during the reign of Haroun al-Rashid, Sindbad undertakes seven voyages from Basra, each leading one to the other, encounters fabulous creatures, faces exhaustive ordeals and amasses fabulous wealth. The publisher of the present edition, Louis-Mathieu Langles, an important figure in the study of Middle-Eastern and Oriental languages and literature, was a correspondent of William Jones in Calcutta, co-founder of the Ecole des Langues Orientales Vivantes in Paris and the keeper of the Indian manuscript department in the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris.

      St. Louis. April 27, 1814. - [1]p., on a 7 3/4 x 6 1/4-inch sheet. Old folds. Light soiling. Fine. An order for fourteen men and related rations in the Missouri Territory, signed by William Clark and Joseph Henderson. The document reads, in part: "A provision Return for fourteen men ordered into the Service of the United States by Gov. William Clark for two days commensing the Twenty Sixth & Ending the Twenty Seventh of April 1814.The Contractor will issue Forty two Compleat Rations as agreeable to the above Return St. Louis Missouri Territory the 27th April 1814 [signed] Wm. Clark." After their famous exploration of the Louisiana Purchase and lands westward to the mouth of the Columbia River, Lewis and Clark were rewarded with important government appointments. Clark's first position upon returning from the expedition was as brigadier general of the militia and agent for Indian affairs in the upper Louisiana territory. He headquartered his activities in St. Louis. Eventually, Clark was appointed the governor of the Missouri Territory after the outbreak of the War of 1812. Mere days after signing this document, on May 1, Clark traveled to Wisconsin to do his part for the war by erecting Fort Shelby at Prairie du Chien. It is reasonable to assume this document could pertain to preparations for Clark's Fort Selby mission. A rare autograph specimen from Clark's years as governor of the Missouri Territory, a position he held from 1813 to 1820. HOWGEGO C35.

      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&#39; 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&#39;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.

        A Treatise on the wealth, power, and resources of the British Empire , in every quarter of the world, including the East Indies... Illustrated by copious statistical tables

      London: Joseph Mawman, 1814. Quarto, contemporary tree calf with gilt tooled flat spine and green calf label, boards scuffed, old repairs to front board and tail of spine, title-page a little foxed yet very good. First edition: a detailed description of the state of the British Empire at the final stage of the war with Napoleon, with a chapter on the penal colony at New South Wales. Patrick Colquhoun (1745-1820) was an energetic magistrate who played an important role in the reform of the London police from 1792 onwards, while promoting philanthropic schemes for the relief of the poor through charitable funds and soup kitchens. Colquhoun predicted a disastrous rise in unemployment and poverty following the demobilisation of the British armed forces after the defeat of Napoleon, who was exiled at Elba at the time of publication. The author sought to calculate the wealth of the empire, including possible sources of future revenue, with a view to initiating large scale employment and emigration to the colonies. Colquhoun devotes an important chapter to the state of affairs in New South Wales, providing detailed descriptions of the agriculture and exports of the colony alongside the significant expenditures incurred. Through careful calculations the author proposes the convict settlement at New South Wales has cost £2,465,182: an enormous sum compared to the relatively small number of convicts transported. The cost exceeds the benefit, maintains Colquhoun, and the convicts should be sent to the relatively prosperous colonies of South Africa and North America (being present day Canada). The description of New South Wales details the trading privileges enjoyed by army officers, especially the trade in cheap liquor that bred intoxication and poor discipline, while low numbers of female migrants generated prostitution and immorality. Interestingly, the author notes the lack of minted currency and the use of grain and cattle in as a medium of exchange. Clearly a wide variety of sources were used in this ambitious project including the Report of the Select Committee for Transportation of 1812 and the early settlement accounts of Governor Arthur Phillip and Judge Advocate David Collins.

        View of Port Jackson, taken from the South Head

      London: G and W. Nicol, 1814. Engraved plate measuring 270 x 344 mm. (sheet size), some marginal loss at one corner, else good. Sydney Harbour after Westall. Fine early view of Sydney Harbour by William Westall, official illustrator for the Investigator voyage. Westall produced about one hundred and forty sketches and watercolours during his time with Flinders, yet only a handful were selected to be engraved as plates for the 1814 publication, of which this is a pleasing example. Westall was recommended by Benjamin West, president of the Royal Academy, for appointment as landscape artist to Matthew Flinders&#39;s voyage in the Investigator. Accordingly, this engraving is one of the first published records of Australian landscape to be made by a Royal Academy artist.

Tochter des Landschaftsmalers, Kunsthändlers und Musikers J.B. Stuntz (1753-1836), der zusammen mit J.N. Strixner (1782-1855) und F. Piloty (1786-1844) in München eine Steindruckerei gegründet hatte. Ausgebildet bei ihrem Vater und seinen beiden Kompagnons, arbeitete sie erst in der lithographischen Anstalt. Hier hatte sie mit eigenen Folgen großen, auch finanziellen Erfolg, weshalb sie für die Familie einen Sommersitz in Thalkirchen bei München erwerben konnte. 1813 ging sie zum Studium der Historienmalerei an die Münchner Akademie und war Schülerin von J.P. von Langer (1756-1824) und dessen Sohn R. von Langer (1783-1846). Bereits 1815 sollte sie mit ihren ersten ausgestellten Ölgemälden große Anerkennung finden. 1818 folgte eine Reise nach Paris, wo sie die Werke der Alten Meister studierte und vor allem nach Raffael kopierte. Ein dreijähriges Reisestipendium ermöglichte ihr anschließend einen Aufenthalt in Italien. Hier begegnete sie Louise Seidler (1786-1866) und entdeckte, auch durch F. Overbeck angeregt, die religiöse Malerei. 1821 wurde sie Ehrenmitglied der Accademia di San Luca. Nach München 1822 zurückgekehrt, heiratete sie 1823 den ihr seit 1818 bekannten Kgl. Bayer. Vize-Oberstallmeister Wilhelm Frh. von Freyberg. Danach wechselnde Aufenthalte in München und Thalkirchen sowie Fortsetzung ihrer künstlerischen Tätigkeit. Sie schuf ein großes OEuvre an Landschaften, Porträts, Historien- und Genrebildern sowie religiösen Motiven. Von der in ihrer Zeit als eine der besten Zeichnerinnen und Malerinnen gerühmten Künstlerin besitzen zahlreiche Museum und Graphische Sammlungen Werke, so in München, Berlin und Wien.

"Noch niemals ist mir ein Typhus-Kranker gestorben, und ein gleiches Glück glaube ich mit der festesten Gewissheit einem Jeden der die Krankheit wie ich behandelt, versprechen zu können, wenn nicht etwas sehr ungünstige Umstände die Genesung verhindern, (z.B. in überfüllten, schlechten bedingten Lazarethen, bei sehr alten oder höchst schwächlichen Subjekten). - Hierauf gründen sich meine Behauptungen, hierauf meine Behandlungsart." +++ Wedemeyer: Georg Ludwig Heinrich Karl W., Arzt und tüchtiger Physiolog, wurde um 1790 in Elbingerode geboren. Er studierte in Göttingen und erlangte daselbst 1812 die Doctorwürde mit der Inauguraldissertation "De febre petechiali". Darauf ließ er sich als Arzt in Hannover nieder, wurde kgl.

      Boston: Isaiah Thomas, Jun., J.T. Buckingham, printer, 1814. 12mo (15 cm; 5.75"). 144 pp. As per its title-page, the "Second Edition" (only) of this popular and long-reprinted production. "Hieroglyphic" is the term that was originally and is still applied to Bibles of the sort offered here, but, in fact, the stories are in the form of rebuses, with the accurate readings supplied at the base of each page. These abridged Bibles are laden with many "cuts" or illustration &#151; this one having 500, according to the title-page &#151; and were designed for use by children. They had the dual purpose of being a fun way of learning to read and of learning the Bible. Children are, unfortunately, notorious as "enemies of books," to use the term made current by Mr. Blades in his book of that title, and so, hieroglyphic Bibles are often severely damaged or incomplete. Binding: Contemporary brown calf, perimeter of boards tooled in gilt with a triple fillet; inside that is a gilt-tooled roll of a rope design, and inside that is the blind-tooled roll of a repeating flower motif. Turn-ins with a gilt-roll of dots, stone pattern endpapers. Provenance: Gift inscription on p. 5: "Sarah Fessenden to her cousin Elizabeth Ford. New Year&#39;s gift, Jan. 1817." Ownership inscription on front fly-leaf, "Elizabeth Ford&#39;s Book. Not in Rosenbach, Early American Children&#39;s Books; Welch, Bibliography of American Children&#39;s Books Printed Prior to 1821, 512.1; Shaw & Shoemaker 30861.

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.

        Edinburgh. A View of the Old Town, taken from Princes Street

      published by Daniel McIntosh, sold in London by Boydell & Co., and Colnaghi & Co, Edinburgh 1814 - A lively view of Georgian Edinburgh. A fine view of a windy day on one of the most fashionable streets of the period: in the foreground a stagecoach is leaving, laden with passengers and apparently pursued by a late-comer who gestures in an attempt to attract the attention of anyone on the coach. More serenely, the coach is flanked by fashionable Edinburgh going about its daily business. This view may be seen as a precursor to John Clark's own Views in Scotland published in London between 1824 and 1825 with a total of 35 plates. A 19th century gazetteer notes that 'Edinburgh presents, from almost every point of view whence it can be viewed such scenic and architectural groupings as are perhaps unrivalled in any existing city in the world. It possesses attractions peculiarly its own, and fixes the gaze and challenges the admiration of a spectator by displays of general excellence, unaided by the sumptuousness of any one object, and undergraded by the deteriorations from its prevailing style of magnificence.' (Fullarton [publisher's] A Gazetteer of the World 1856, III, p.140). Aquatint, printed in brown ink, coloured by hand, by John Clark.

        John Boydell, Esq

      London: Cadell & Davies, 21 June, 1814. Soft ground etching, plate size 380 x 325 mm. on a larger sheet; a very good impression, ex-library stamp to verso, together with the relevant letterpress. A fine portrait of the great publisher John Boydell (1720-1804), the most important print publisher of his day, and together with his daughter Mary and her husband George Nicol, the initial impetus behind the publication of John Webber&#39;s magnificent Views in the South Seas. Webber&#39;s colour-plate book of the Pacific, the only colour-plate book relating to Cook&#39;s voyages and the last of the great Cook publications, contained sixteen coloured aquatints, after Webber&#39;s drawings, and engraved by the artist himself. The portrait was done by Henry Meyer (1782-1847) after an original portrait by Gilbert Stuart (1755-1828). In the Georgian era Webber was perhaps most famous for a Shakespeare project that included the establishment of a Shakespeare Gallery and the publication of an illustrated edition of Shakespeare&#39;s plays. He also became Lord Mayor of London.
