        Letter, signed ("Le Gnl. Cmt. Dupont") as Minister of War under the provisional government, to Maréchal Claude Victor-Perrin, duc de Bellune, acknowledging the latter's acceptance of Napoleon's abdication and the restoration of the Bourbons

      N.p. [Paris], 13 april, 1814 - An extraordinary letter of historic significance, written a mere two days after the Treaty of Fontainebleau of April 11, 1814, which set the terms of Napoleon's abdication, and ended an era. Dupont had been one of Napoleon's most distinguished generals, but his surrender in the disastrous Spanish campaign led to disgrace and imprisonment. After the fall of Napoléon, Dupont became Minister of War for Louis XVIII, and, in just such letters as this to Marshal Victor - one of Napoleon's most trusted generals - negotiated the acquiescence of Napoléon's military leaders: [in translation] "Monsieur le Maréchal; - The provisional government has read with intense interest the declaration in which your Excellency has announced his adherence to the act of the Senate pronouncing the abdication of Napoleon Buonaparte and the restoration of the Bourbons on the throne on their ancestors. By this declaration, taken in the interest of the country, your Excellency has established anew a claim to the gratitude of the French people as well as the respect and good will of His Majesty, Louis XVIII. Such is the opinion, sir, of the provisional government - and I am more than happy to be its messenger on this memorable occasion" (NAPOLEON) Folio. 1 p., on letterhead of "Ministère de la Guerre". Some very slight waterstaining affecting a few letters, otherwise very good, handsomely mounted and framed

        Magnolia Discolor

      [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 Legrand. Very good condition.

        An essay on the prevention and cure of insanity; with observations on the rules for the detection of pretenders to madness

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme & Brown; Warrington, J. and J. Haddock, Warrington,, 1814. Octavo (225 × 137 mm). Original publisher's blue boards, rebacked with paper label to style. A little rubbed, some foxing and browning, but overall a very good copy. First edition. "George Nesse Hill (1766–1831) 'medical surgeon' of Chester wrote this critical compilation of 446 pages leavened by an appendix of 29 personally observed cases. As the title implies he stressed preventive and curative aspects, and perhaps as a result of seeing malingering among the Chester Garrison discussed 'the detection of pretenders to madness', a subject little heard of today … His interest in 'madness' had been roused by 'the observations of my late worthy preceptor Dr. James Maddocks of the London Hospital' who in his lectures had criticised physicians for not paying more regard 'to a class of diseases so distressing' and instead relegating them to 'men who make their management their only study' …" Hill was one of the first to mention 'syphilitic lunatics,' moving some way towards identifying the general paralysis of the insane in his statement that "Youthful syphilitics … are in advanced life frequent victims to melancholia with peculiar brainular mischief" (Hunter and Macalpine).

        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

      W. Bulmer and Co. for G. and W. Nicol, London 1814 - Contemporary half russia over marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spines divided into six compartments by double gilt fillets, lettered in the second compartment, numbered in the fourth A fine set of the first edition text of the first circumnavigation of Australia an enlightening and fascinating story of brilliant navigation and discovery. 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 18 July 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 19 July 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 from the regular-sized issue.

      La Real Imprenta de Niños Expósitos, [Buenos Aires], 1814 - 2 pp. on one sheet. 12 1/2 x 7 1/4 inches; 19.5 x 31.5 cm. Modern quarter morocco portfolio over marbled boards, gilt title and decoration. Hardback. Posadas, who was the first Supreme Director of the United Provinces of Rio de la Plata, accused Colonel Jose Artigas (1764-1850) of treason for which he was sentenced to death. A reward of 6000 pesos is offered for his capture, dead or alive. Those of his troops and officers who did not surrender were to be declared traitors, judged by a military commission, and shot within 24 hours if found carrying weapons. Artigas was the leader of an independent band of rebels during the conflict with Spain, but his independence caused problems for the United Provinces leading to this call for his capture and execution, neither of which occurred due to his widespread popularity. Later Artigas would lead the war for Uruguayan independence against Argentina and became its first president. Scarce. OCLC locates only one copy at UC Berkeley. Furlong IV: 3039.

A wide-margined, untrimmed set. "Libraries assembled by wealthy bibliophiles became very numerous during the nineteenth century and soon developed from the gentleman's library exemplified by the [Pierre Antoine] Crevenna collection . Like the Crevenna catalogue, the catalogues of such libraries are usually examples of luxurious printing and are sold at high prices, if they are sold at all. The descriptions of the books are often very detailed and often, in the most recent catalogues of this sort, deal with the history of the particular copy that is described. Perhaps Thomas Frognall Dibdin set the pattern for the modern bibliophile owner's catalogue by the Bibliotheca Spenceriana. This and many catalogues like it are naturally valuable to collectors, bibiographers, and scholars." (Taylor: Book Catalogues: Their Varieties and Uses, 8-9). DeRicci calls this catalogue "the handsomest and most elaborate catalogue of a private library yet issued" (English Collectors of Books & Manuscripts, 75). Very occasional spotting, with some chipping to edges. Stamp of a defunct library on title-pages, and occasionally elsewhere, but with no other library markings. Short closed tears to half-title of vol. 1; short tears/small pieces missing to top of several leaves in vol. 2, not affecting text; rear blank of vol. 3 tape-repaired; some offsetting from engravings and linecuts.

        AMERICAN ORNITHOLOGY, OR, THE NATURAL HISTORY OF THE BIRDS OF THE UNITED STATES: ILLUSTRATED WITH PLATES; ENGRAVED AND COLORED FROM ORIGINAL DRAWINGS TAKEN FROM NATURE.

      Philadelphia: Bradford & Inskeep, 1808-1814. - Nine volumes. Seventy-six engravings, with excellent handcoloring. Folio. Contemporary marbled boards, expertly backed to original style in red calf with plain gilt rules, title and volumes numbers stamped in gilt. Some light wear to text leaves. Moderate to heavy foxing and offsetting from plates, as usual with this work, but far better than typical. Wilson's work was the most important work on American ornithology before Audubon and the most elaborate color plate book published in America up to its time. Wilson, a Scot, began work on American birds in 1802 with the encouragement of William Bartram. The feverish pace of his work, which began to be published in 1808, weakened his constitution, and he died suddenly in 1813, with the eighth volume in press. His friend George Ord completed the work and wrote a memoir in the final volume. Although incomplete in scope, because of Wilson's narrow geographical travels and his early death, it was by far the most extensive work about American birds. Likewise, the color plates set a new standard of achievement for works produced in America, even though Wilson's artistry was sometimes crude, and the depictions of birds are stiff and out of scale compared to Audubon. In fact, as a self-taught poet and schoolmaster who came late to such work, he did a remarkable job, although he was fated to be outshone by Audubon. Wilson's first volume appeared in September, 1808; the present set is the second issue, with a different imprint than the first. The second volume came out in 1810, the third and fourth in 1811, the fifth and sixth in 1812, and the seventh and eighth in 1813. Ord produced the final volume in 1814. Wilson's book is a great pioneering effort in both American bookmaking and science. It remained a standard book even after Audubon, and possibly went through more editions than Audubon's octavo set, staying in print in one form or another until the 1880's. Bennett calls it "the first truly outstanding American color plate book of any type." MEISEL III, p.369. DAB XX, p.317. BENNETT, p.114. SABIN 104597. REESE, STAMPED WITH NATIONAL CHARACTER 3.

        Letters from Albion to a friend on the continent, Written in the years 1810, 1811, 1812 & 1813.

      London, Gale, Curtis, and Fenner (printed by S. Hamilton, Weybridge, Surrey), 1814.. In two volumes. 2 Bände. IV, 1 Bl., 260 S.; 281 S., 3 unnumerierte Seiten (Verlagsanzeigen). Kl. 8°, Halblederbände der Zeit mit roten Rückenschildern und leichten Rückengoldprägungen.. Die Ecken etwas gestaucht, die Deckel etwas beschabt, die Rückentiteleien etwas verblasst, in den Gelenken etwas angeplatzt, von Band 2 der Vorderdeckel insg. stärker gelockert, die Vorsätze jeweils in den Ecken leim-, bzw. braunschattig. Namensschilder und handschriftliche Namenseintragungen auf beiden Vorsatzblättern (Heinr. Eberh. Röder, bzws. Henry E. Roeder). - Originalausgabe! Nicht der Reprint (CD-ROM, bzw. Microfiche) aus dem Olms-Verlag! Englisch. Der Verfasser, nach dem Vorwort zu urteilen ev. ein deutscher Adeliger, scheint vor den kriegerischen Handlungen der napoleonischen Kriege, bzw. der Befreiungskriege nach England geflüchtet zu sein! Er reist von Berlin, sein Brieffreund war da wohl noch in Königsberg über Hamburg und mancherlei schwierige Wege dann letztendlich nach England und verbringt dort einige Jahre mit Reisen durch England und Schottland. Aus dem Vorwort: " This series of Letters arose from a correspondence which a foreigner, during his residence in this country, really kept up with an intimate friend on the Continent. They were originally written in German, and of course not designed for publication. As, however, the Author's stay here was protracted by the unfavourable turn in the affairs of Europe previous to the battle of Leipsic,... These letters are the same mentioned some weeks ago in "Lara", as being translated from the German, which alluded to the original manuscript never published before." - In Englisch. - Via COPAC nur wenige Exemplare in Schottland und England (u.a. Birmingham, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Glasgow und in der British Library) ermittelbar, in Deutschland nur ein Exemplar in der Universitätsbibliothek Erfurt. - The British Critic: A New Review, Band 3 schreibt 1815 über das Werk: " These letters are supposed to be written from a person residing in England to his friend on the Continent during 1810, and the three following years. They contain rapid scetches of the most remarkable scenery both of England and Scotland, and general descriptions of the principal cities and towns...The following description of Lemington will give the reader a fair idea of the whole: " Four miles from Newcastle, on the north side of the Tyne, are situated the iron-works of Lemington, where the ore is melted, east into pigs, and the iron worked into any shape wanted. This is an image of hell, as St. Augustine represents it, and I assure you not without cause." We must remark, however, that the information conveyed in these letters, is often spoilt by a pert vulgarity both of observation and style, which we are sorry to see estended in some instances towards principle also, as in the remarks on the opposition made to Mr. Lancaster's system of education."

Others are copied from Piranesi, Bartoli, and Millin. Nineteen plates in the section on tombs "may not at first appear connected with the principal object of the work: yet as they represent some of the vast and superb sepulchral chambers in which Vases, Cinerary Urns, and Sarcophagi were deposited, and are taken from Bartoli and other celebrated authorities, it is hoped that they will be considered as an useful addition."(p. v) These include the mausoleum of Hadrian, and the tombs of Caius Cestius, Cecilia Metella, Alexander Severus and Julia Mammea, &c. The engraver Moses "enoy[ed] a great reputation for his outline plates, which are distinguished for the purity and correctness of the drawing.

Its author Thieleman Jansz van Braght, elder of the Flemish Mennonite congregation at Dordrecht; illustrations were by engraver Jan Luiken. Historically for Amish and Mennonites, the Martyrs Mirror has been the most important book next to the Bible.

The Book that Broke the Printer Joseph Ehrenfried: In 1814 he published and printed the same martyrs' book that had put the Ephrata Cloister print shop on the bibliographic map, when they printed it in 1748. But luck was not with Joseph Ehrenfried. This hefty book broke his printing business into bankruptcy. Joseph Ehrenfried's 1814 Martyrs' Mirror was beautifully designed and carefully printed. But fortune was not smiling on Joseph Ehrenfried. This book bankrupted him, and he was forced to work for the printer John Baer for the next 20 years. The Lancaster printer Joseph Ehrenfried gambled on the Martyrer Spiegel (Martyrs' Mirror) and he lost his shirt.

The plates amount to 2592, and they are, on the whole, the most expressive and accurate of their kind." Upon its first appearance, contemporary Suffolk botanist Thomas Jenkinson Woodward wrote to Smith: "I have got the first No. of English botany, and am charmed with it. I have recommended it to every body I have seen who buys of this sort The paper, print and execution of the plates, is so much superior to Curtis, that there can be no fear of its succeeding ".
