        Historia della sollevatione de Fermani et morte di monsignor Uberto Maria Visconte descritta da [.] l'Asceso Accademico Avvivato.

      XVII-XVIII secolo]., [Italia, - Libro manoscritto in-4° (cm. 20), legatura coeva in cartonato (lievi usure e restauri); cc. nn. [80] [2 b.] in buono stato, in barbe. Inedito racconto di una torbida vicenda politico-economica marchigiana di metà Seicento, l'assassinio del vicegovernatore di Fermo, il milanese di nomina pontificia Uberto Visconti che aveva calmierato il costo del grano. «Ciò piaceva ai poveri, ma dispiaceva ai ricchi, perché non potevano vendere le loro derrate al prezzo ingordo che desideravano. Pertanto cominciarono a spargere nel popolo voce che i prezzi si tenevano bassi non per altro che per farne grossissime incette, poi mandandole fuori di Stato, guadagnarvi su grandissime somme. [.]. Il popolo che più spesso crede a' suoi nemici che a' suoi amici, si risentì: delle male voglie nascevano nel paese» [C. Botta. Storia d'Italia continuata da quella del Guicciardini sino al 1814. Parigi Braudry 1832, t.V, p.386]. Alcuni popolani che pugnalarono il vicegovernatore finirono impiccati, mentre i nobili che avevano armato il popolo si resero irreperibili e sopravvissero, addossando con questo scritto del concittadino Raccamadori - all'epoca mai pubblicato e circolante manoscritto - tutte le responsabilità allo stesso Visconti (vulgata ancora sostenuta dall'aristocrazia locale fino al XIX secolo). Questa nostra trascrizione della prima ora è firmata Felice Antonio Amato [c.80]. Cfr. Y-M. Bercé. La sommossa di Fermo del 1648. Fermo, Andrea Livi editore, 2007. [LEGATO CON:] Un altra instruttione alquanto differente [.] di cc. nn. 10 [2], cerimoniale per la visita di ambasciatori regi, cardinali, etc. e concistoro. «Circa il fermare la carozza.» [p.3]. Da studiare. Interessante e in buono stato.

        Mémoires concernant l'histoire, les sciences, les arts, les moeurs, les usages . . . des Chinois . . . par les Missionnaires de Pekin.

      1814 - First edition. 17 bound in 16 vols. Two frontispiece portraits, 193 engraved plates (some folding), maps, and tables. 4to. Uniformaly bound in 19th century polished calf, elegantly rebacked. Some occasional minor staining (damp and waterstaining affecting vol. 2), but overall a very good set. Paris, Nyon/Treuttel & Würtz, 1776- A beautiful and very rare complete set of the most comprehensive survey of all aspects of Chinese life in the 18th century. The publication was the project of Henri Bertin (1720-92) who controlled the finances under Louis XVI. The main contributor was Joseph Amiot (1718-94) who had arrived in Peking in August 1751 and remained there for the rest of his life (a fine portrait in the final volume shows him in Chinese dress). Others include Gaubil, Prémare, Cibot, Poirot, as well as two Chinese converts, named Aloys Gao and Etienne Yang who had both studied in Paris. They returned to China in 1765 with a pension from the French King on the understanding that they would send reports and materials that would improve the knowledge of China in France. The Mémoires were published over a period of 38 years with much of the cost being carried by King Louis XVI. It is curious to note that the entire project was published three years after the Jesuit order had been banned by Pope Clement XIV. Furthermore, the last two volumes XVI/XVII  are exceedingly rare having been published in Nyon some 23 years after volume XV. The first volume includes a translation of the Emperor Qianlong?s account of his conquests in Western China. The frontispiece shows him wearing Manchu dress and he is honoured in the following glowing terms: ?Working tirelessly for an admirable government - the greatest ruler in the world and the best scholar of his empire? The Jesuits were the first Europeans to make a thorough study of Chinese language, literature, history, and people: The Mémoires include translations of large parts of the Chinese Classics; Chinese law, maxims, and proverbs; as well as essays on Chinese linguistics, current affairs and scientific observation. It includes a reprint of Amiot?s important work on Chinese military strategy with  French translations of some of the most important Chinese texts, i.e. the ?Sunzi?, ?Wuzi?, and ?Bingfa? There are biographies of noted Chinese throughout history, texts on martial arts, food and silk-production, musical instruments, natural history, astronomy, and medicine. Furthermore, it contains Amiot?s ?Life of Confucius? It had great influence on French philosophers of the 18th century, who were impressed with the way that Confucianism formed a strong social order without having to rely on religious dogma. There are numerous Jesuit letters touching on current Imperial affairs, including the nature of the tribute system, and relations with Tibet. Of particular rarity is vol. 16 which contains the 2nd part of the ?Abridged History of the Tang Dynasty? by Antoine Gaubil (1689-1759), as well as a Chinese chronology from the beginning of time to the year 206 B.C. (i.e. to shortly after the end of the first Qin dynasty) by the same author. Gaubil was particularly interested in early Chinese history and astronomy because it conflicted with Western notions of a biblical chronology. These ideas contributed to a big controversy in 18th century Europe over the true date for the beginning of the world and other event mentioned in the Old Testament. This set came from the prestigious Signet library, which formed part of the Society of Writers to Her Majesty?s Signet , a private society of Scottish solicitors dating back to 1594.

Anzeiger, Nr. 135 vom 15.06., S. 1384 nennt Arndt als Verfasser." (Bibliographie der Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-Gesellschaft). - Ernst Moritz Arndt beginnt seine anonym erschienene Schrift mit dem Scheitern des Russlandfeldzugs Napoleons und schildert kurz die Schlachten in Russland u. Spanien (Salamanca u. Soeg Wellingtons bei Victoria) und schildert den Verlauf des von Friedrich Wilhelm erklärten "heiligen" Befreiungskrieges. Erwähnt werden Kämpfe bei Lützen, Wurschen, Dresden, Berlin, Drennewitz, Jüderbog, Katzbach in Schlesien, der Beitritt Bayerns (Konvention zu Reid), Leipzig, Hanau, Frankfurt, Schweden u. a. - Besonders interessant und fast aktuell (TTIP) sind jedoch die Aussagen über die Folgen der Besatzung: "Fremde Gesetze und Rechte traten an die Stelle alter geheiligte Gewohnheiten und wohl bekannten Herkommens; ohne alle Rücksicht auf Sitten und Gebräuche, und Verschiedenheit des Karakters (!) des Volks, ward alles nach fremden Formen geben; die herrliche Sprache der Deutschen verachtet, entwürdigt gegen ein fremdes Geschwätz!

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]

      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).

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.

A touch of rubbing to head and tail of spine, upper hinge just starting to crack at top and bottom, endpapers very lightly foxed, occasional pale fox spot or faint browning to text pages, tiny pale mark to background of a couple of plates, faintest browning to white background of Plate 47, text leaf to that plate reinserted and very slightly dusty at top and fore-edge. A very good tight copy. 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. First published in French and in English in 1802 as The Costumes of Turkey. Attributed to the French artist Octavien Dalvimart about whom little is known, in the Preface. 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.
