Light browning and occasional foxing and light dampstaining, a few volumes have loose or detached leaves, all with some edgewear, bookplates (of binder) to front pastedowns. Ex-library. Location labels and owner labels to spines, stamps to edges and preliminaries. A solid set. * Fifth and final edition. This edition is considered the best. Holdsworth, for one, considers it "an invaluable collection of nearly all the important criminal trials and constitutional cases, and of some important civil cases, which have some bearing upon public law." As indicated by the title, it incorporates Francis Hargrave's Collection of State Trials (fourth edition), an eleven-volume collection published between 1776 and 1781. The majority of the cases are from the King's Bench, and many are not reported elsewhere. The coverage is chronological from Thomas Becket in 1163 through 1820. According to Sweet & Maxwell and the Harvard Law Catalogue, the first twelve volumes were compiled by William Cobbett. They seem to have drawn this conclusion because Cobbett's name appears on the title pages of early printings. Wallace disputes this claim. He believes that Cob [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        History of the Expedition Under the Command of Captains Lewis and Clark, to the Sources of the Missouri, Thence Across the Rocky Mountains and Down the River Columbia to the Pacific Ocean. Performed During the Years 1804-5-6

      Bradford and Inskeep, Philadelphia 1814 - Two volumes, octavo (8 1/2" x 5 1/2"); xxviii[470]; ix[1]522 pages. Original publisher's tree sheep, red leather lettering pieces on spines. With the large engraved FOLDING MAP from an early printing (1842, which is the second earliest map available only after the 1817 Dublin edition), as well as the eastern one fifth of the original map, and 5 engraved plans and charts. An exceptional copy, larger than usual with wider margins; internally very good, with minimal browning and foxing; expertly rebacked with original spine and labels laid on. Short closed marginal tear, volume I, page 61 and 119 and volume II, page 201, none affecting text. The folding map was not issued with all copies and actually was separately priced, nearly as much as the book. Thomas Jefferson had first proposed exploring the west to George Rogers Clark in 1783. The Louisiana Purchase of 1803 spurred Jefferson to implement his idea - Lewis and Clark covered nearly 8 thousand miles in just over 28 months. Their hope was to find a water route across the continent, but they did not. "The definitive account of the most important exploration of the North American continent." (Wagner-Camp 13, Howes L-317).

        A General Collection of the Best and Most Interesting Voyages and Travels ... Africa

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, 1814. Frontispieces & Plates. 2 vols. 4to. Recently bound in half brown calf and marbled boards, spine labels gilt. Ex-library with small perforated stamp on title pages, some browning of leaves. A very attractive set. Frontispieces & Plates. 2 vols. 4to. Pinkerton's collection of voyages was published over the course of six years in a total of seventeen volumes. The six volumes devoted to Europe comprise the largest section of the collection. They are "of great value for its texts, which are sometimes given entire and sometimes abridged, with as much as possible of the traveler's own language" (Hill). Pinkerton was something of a character. Having apprenticed to an Edinburgh solicitor, upon the death of his father and receipt of his inheritance, he immediately turned his back to a legal career and dedicated himself to literary matters. Through his works as a historian, poet and playwrite, he made friendships with the likes of Horace Walpole, Walter Scott and Edward Gibbon and through his controversial religious views and short temper he eventually lost them.

        War of 1812 American Militia Letter - The Siege of Fort Erie

      New York, 1814. Letter. Very Good. This important three-page folio-sized manuscript letter reports on the American actions at the Siege of Fort Erie during September of 1814 including the sorties attacking British artillery batteries and the death of General Daniel Davis, the leader of the New York Militia. The American defense was successful as the British forces incurred heavy losses in their assault on the fort, during the American sorties, and as a result of exposure to the elements. The handwritten letter is complete and legible. I shows some storage crease and a few small splits along the folds. One fold has an tape reinforcement that is beginning to discolor. Blackmer, was an early settler in Oneida County, New York where after initially constructing a fortified tavern on the road between Onondaga and Westmoreland, he established a large farm and donated land for a Baptist meeting-house and school. In August of 1814 at the meeting-house, the Reverend Solomon Brown read the initial dispatch from Niagara that British forces were beginning to surround Fort Erie. Subsequently, a number of Oneida militia men, including Blackmer's son, Ephraim and Jirah, volunteered to defend Buffalo and help lift the siege. Nehimiah Jones was a well-respected Revolutionary War veteran from Massachusetts who had moved to Westmoreland, New York. His son, Pomroy, served in the New York militia during the War of 1812. A transcript of the letter is included.

        Calendula Chrysanthemifolia

      [Paris, 1814. Stipple engraving, printed in colour and finished by hand, engraved by Legrand. Very good condition. 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.

The plates show costumes and customs of the 18th century Ottoman Empire including Greeks, Albanians, Egyptians, Syrians, Tartars, etc plus eunuchs, odalisks, other women, servants, a musician, a Jew, dervishes, officers of the Janissaries, soldiers, a naval admiral, the grand vizier and a few tradesmen.

It seems the text is by another, sometimes attributed to William Alexander, as one of the descriptions includes a comment made by Mons. Dalvimart. The English artist William Alexander (1767-1816) accompanied the Macartney Embassy to China in 1792 as draughtsman and in 1808 was appointed assistant keeper of antiquities in the British Museum.

        War of 1812 Manuscript Memorandum Book

      Lancaster County, Virginia, 1814. Paper Wrapper. Very Good. Handmade, string-bound 4" x 6" booklet with 24 pages, ten of which have been used. Worn cover. Binding holding, but slightly loose. Several leaves have been clipped from the rear of the book. The rear cover is titled "Memorandum Book" in ink, the book has several pencil annotations in a different hand referencing Heber Currie (b 1855). There are other indistinct markings on the cover. Ellyson A. Currie Sr. was Heber's grandfather and his great-grandfather was David Currie, a wealthy Episcopalian minister with a 1,000 acre glebe in Lancaster County, Virginia, upon which his forty slaves raised corn and grain. Ellyson Currie, Sr. became a lawyer and judge in the county and served in the House of Delegates. Although he lived on a much smaller property, Ellyson still owned over thirty slaves that census records suggest he rented to other planters. The first entry in the book is dated 1814. This book contains four pages of detailed instruction, probably to his son, Ellyson Jr., for managing the Currie property while he was away; as the Quartermaster of the 92nd Regiment of Virginia Militia, Ellyson Sr. was called to active duty away from home on four occasions during 1814. His guidance addresses provender, dung, weevils, potatoes, mending railings, sheep and cattle, hogs, tools (ploughs, hoes, etc.), the still, house security, hired hands, and possible live-in help. The book contains several records of payments including two to Billy and Ellie, "free negro lad(s)." A unique and important personal record of a citizen-soldier's preparation for deployment during the War of 1812.

        War of 1812 American Militia Letter - The Siege of Fort Erie

      New York, 1814. Letter. Very Good. This important three-page folio-sized manuscript letter reports on the American actions at the Siege of Fort Erie during September of 1814 including the sorties attacking British artillery batteries and the death of General Daniel Davis, the leader of the New York Militia. The American defense was successful as the British forces incurred heavy losses in their assault on the fort, during the American sorties, and as a result of exposure to the elements. The handwritten letter is complete and legible. I shows some storage crease and a few small splits along the folds. One fold has an tape reinforcement that is beginning to discolor. Blackmer, was an early settler in Oneida County, New York where after initially constructing a fortified tavern on the road between Onondaga and Westmoreland, he established a large farm and donated land for a Baptist meeting-house and school. In August of 1814 at the meeting-house, the Reverend Solomon Brown read the initial dispatch from Niagara that British forces were beginning to surround Fort Erie. Subsequently, a number of Oneida militia men, including Blackmer's son, Ephraim and Jirah, volunteered to defend Buffalo and help lift the siege. Nehimiah Jones was a well-respected Revolutionary War veteran from Massachusetts who had moved to Westmoreland, New York. His son, Pomroy, served in the New York militia during the War of 1812. A transcript of the letter is included.

BOUND IN DUBLIN BY GEORGE MULLEN c. 1816: blind- and gold-tooled cream straight-grained morocco,'cathedral-style' border on sides, arabesque ornament in center, similar small tools and gothic lettering in compartments of spine, different tools on turn-ins, blue silk liners, gilt edges, binder's ticket on endpaper. Cloth folding box. First edition, one of 36 copies. 8 leaves. Black letter, italic and roman type. 1 vols. 8vo. Mullen Binding, Outstanding Provenance. Provenance: inscribed by the author: "Price stitched 3/6. Only 36 Copies printed" and signed with initials; sold or given by him to -- Rev. Daniel McNeille, Rector of Hackestown, Ireland, sold in July 1816 at Mercier's Auction (clipping from the Dublin Journal of 20 July 1816 mounted on endpaper), incribed by the auctioneer, Richard Edward Mercier, on a flyleaf, presumably at the purchaser's request after it was bound: "... I had a Commission from Mr. Dibdin to purchase for him this Literary Bijoux, which he was very anxious to repossess" -- William Shaw Mason (1774-1853, author of A statistical account or parochial survey of Ireland 1814-19 and Bibliotheca Hibernica 1823), who bought it at the McNeille sale, had it bound by Mullen, and presented and inscribed it to -- Charles, Earl Whitworth of Abaston (1795-1825, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland 1813-17), "whose kind condescension has so essentially promoted the progress of the Statistical Survey" -- George John, Earl de la Warr (1791-1869), armorial bookplate. Later owners include Bernard Breslauer. Dibdin's pseudo-auction catalogue, LIMITED TO 36 COPIES and typically written in pseudo-Middle English, of the 19 early printed books in English (including three Caxtons) that he had bought from the Dean and Chapter of Lincoln Cathedral for 500 guineas. The full title reads: Here begyneth a littel tome and hathe to name The Lincolne Nosegay: beynge a brefe table of certaine bokes in the posession of Maister Thomas Frognall Dibdin clerk. Which bookes be to be sold to him who shal gyve the moste for ye same. The two buyers were Lord Spencer, whose librarian Dibdin had been since 1805, and Richard Heber. In an essay of 1953 William Jackson, Dibdin's bibliographer, sorted out these somewhat dubious transactions and was able to locate all but one of the books (reprinted in Records of a Bibliographer 1967).

        Fidelio. Eine Grosse Oper in 2 Aufzügen.

      Vienna, Artaria, [1814]. - Oblong folio. Engraved piano score with the text. Untrimmed, preserving upper cover of the blue original temporary wrappers. First printing of the first edition of Beethoven's only opera; of the utmost rarity. Inscribed on the title page, in Beethoven's own hand, to his benefactor Pasqualati (1777-1830), in whose house the composer then lodged: "Seinem werthen Freunde Baron von Pasqualati vom Verfasser" ("To his dear friend Baron Pasqualati, from the author"). No more than three copies of this first edition bearing Beethoven's autograph inscription are known; the present one is described by Kinsky/Halm as follows: "This copy from the collection of the Society of Friends of the Music in Vienna (cf. no. 893 in the guide-book to the Centenary Exhibition, Vienna 1927) was presented to the conductor Arturo Toscanini by the Austrian Government on 1 November 1934 on the occasion of a performance of Verdi's 'Requiem', directed by him, as a gift of honour (cf. 'Philobiblon' VIII, 6)." - Somewhat browned and stained throughout, old stitching loosened in places. Collection stamp of the Society of Friends of the Music in Vienna on title page and verso of final leaf. Beethoven's autograph inscription pencilled across the blank margin of the title page. - The present dedication copy was not publicly shown since the great 1927 exhibition in honour of the centennial of Beethoven's death; it was latterly considered lost (as are the other two dedication copies of "Fidelio" described in the catalogue of Beethoven's works). We acquired it directly from Toscanini's estate in spring 2016.

Later buckram, red and black lettering pieces to spines. Moderate shelfwear and soiling, heavier soiling to some volumes, chipping to spine labels. Light browning and occasional foxing and light dampstaining, a few volumes have loose or detached leaves, all with some edgewear, bookplates (of binder) to front pastedowns. Ex-library. Location labels and owner labels to spines, stamps to edges and preliminaries. A solid set. * Fifth and final edition. This edition is considered the best. Holdsworth, for one, considers it "an invaluable collection of nearly all the important criminal trials and constitutional cases, and of some important civil cases, which have some bearing upon public law." As indicated by the title, it incorporates Francis Hargrave's Collection of State Trials (fourth edition), an eleven-volume collection published between 1776 and 1781. The majority of the cases are from the King's Bench, and many are not reported elsewhere. The coverage is chronological from Thomas Becket in 1163 through 1820. According to Sweet & Maxwell and the Harvard Law Catalogue, the first twelve volumes were compiled by William Cobbett. They seem to have drawn this conclusion because Cobbett's name appears on the title pages of early printings. Wallace disputes this claim. He believes that Cob

        Indigofera Australis

      [Paris, 1814. Stipple engraving, printed in colour and finished by hand, engraved by Dion. Very good condition. 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.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM GENERAL JACOB BROWN TO NATHAN WILLIAMS CALLING FOR ASSISTANCE AT THE SIEGE OF FORT ERIE]

      West Bloomfield, N.Y., 1814. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old fold lines. Minor soiling. Near fine. In a green half morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. A hasty note written by Major General Jacob Brown to New York politician Nathan Williams, requesting more arms and equipment for the siege of Fort Erie, currently underway. The Americans, led by Brown, captured Fort Erie on July 3, 1814. British forces, led by Lt. General Gordon Drummond, engaged the Americans at the bloody Battle of Lundy's Lane on July 25th, where Brown was wounded; the Americans retreated to Fort Erie, and Brown was sent off to convalesce. After repeated sorties and engagements, the American commander, General Gaines, was gravely wounded and Brig. General Eleazer Ripley - who thought the whole operation was doomed to failure - took command. Brown, though not quite recovered from wounds taken at the battle of Lundy's Lane the previous month, was sent to replace the pessimistic Ripley as the commander of the Fort. Brown had made a name for himself at the battles of Sackett's Harbor and Lundy's Lane, and his actions at the Siege would cement his position as a national hero, winning him the Congressional Gold Medal in November 1814. Brown jotted this note before setting out to command the troops at the Fort. He writes: "My dear Sir I am so far on my way towards Buffalo. The militia turn out better than was expected. We shall I fear be deficient in arms. You will jump into your easy carriage and ride to Rome as fast as possible upon the receipt of this and see that the keeper of the arsenal there forwards fifteen hundred stand with equipments compleat with all the rapidity possible. Your attention is of much importance." A wonderful letter, written by Major General Jacob Brown on his way to the battle that would ensure his lasting fame.
