        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.

      Nürnberg, Stein, 1814. - Scharfe antinapoleonische Schrift, zum Gedenken an Palm (1768-1806) herausgegeben. Das Buch enthält auch einen gekürzten Abdruck der Flugschrift 'Deutschland in seiner tiefen Erniedrigung', als deren Herausgeber Palm verhaftet und zum Tode verurteilt worden war, da er den Verfasser nicht nennen wollte. Der Vorgang erregte ungeheures Aufsehen. Durch die bestialische Hinrichtung wurde Palm eine der bekanntesten Märtyrerfiguren im Kampf gegen den französischen Usurpator. Auf dem fliegenden Vorsatz eine eigenhändige Widmung von Palms Sohn: „Bester Doctor Steinlein, Nimm dieses traurige Andenken an meinen biedern Vater Von Deinem treuen Freund Johan(n) Palm.

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. Literature (all referencing this copy): Beethoven und die Wiener Kultur seiner Zeit (= Führer durch die Beethoven-Zentenarausstellung der Stadt), Wien 1927, 893. Philobiblon VIII (1935), 6.

      1814. Best Edition of Howell's State Trials [Trials]. Howell, T[homas] B[ayly] [1768-1815], Compiler. [Cobbett, William (1763-1835)], Compiler. A Complete Collection of State Trials and Proceedings for High Treason and Other Crimes and Misdemeanors from the Earliest Period to 1783, With Notes and Other Illustrations. Including, in Addition to the Whole of the Matter Contained in the Folio Edition of Hargrave, Upwards of Two Hundred Cases Never Before Collected; To Which is Subjoined a Table of Parallel Reference, Rendering This Edition Applicable to Those Books of Authority in Which References Are Made in the Folio Edition. [With] Howell, Thomas Jones [1793-1858], Compiler. A Complete Collection of State Trials...Continued From the Year 1783 to the Present Time. [And] Jardine, David [1794-1860], Compiler. General Index to the Collection of State Trials. London: T.C. Hansard for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown [et. al.], 1814-1828. Thirty-four volumes. Complete set. Octavo (9-1/2" x 6"). 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.

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.

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.

        Cactus Ambiguus

      [Paris, 1814. Stipple engraving, printed in colour and finished by hand, engraved by Coutant. Very good condition, with the exception of some small losses at the top of the sheet edge, and a skilfully repaired 2" tear at top left. 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.

        KISOJI MEISHO ZUE: PICTORIAL DESCRIPTIONS OF NOTED PLACES ALONG THE NAKASENDO HI

      Osaka 1814, Kawachi-ya. Blue stitched stiff wrs., very good,. 7 volumes bound in 6, profusely illustrated, woodblock prin-. ted by hand on hand-made Masa paper, some old minor occasio-. nal worming, else text clean & bright, 18 x 25.5 cm. R A R E. Kiso: a mountainous region comprising the S. W. of Shimano and the East of Mino. In 702 A.D. a road was built there, called the Kiso-kaidoh or Nakasendoh. The ancient fief of Kiso, extended as far as the modern city of Matsumoto [Shi- nano] now called Nagano prefecture. It was given to a branch of the Minamoto clan, among whom Yoshinaka became famous. In the Ashikaga era, the region belonged to the Kiso family, who resided first at Suhara, then at Fukushima. Hideyoshi gave it to Ishikawa Sdakiyo. A historic road and main inland route connecting Kyoto to Edo [modern Tokyo]. It passed thr- ough the provinces: Yamashiro, Omi, Mino, Shimano,Kozuke and Musashi, as it followed the great Kiso river for a long dis- tance, thus being called the Kiso-kaidoh, it counted some 69 Eki [stations]. In Edo, all roads began [and ended] at Nihon Bashi, the famous arched bridge in the center of town. Thus, this work also shows that famous location with its charming and famous bridge. This lovely travelogue shows the majestic and wondrous sights along the highway, from its beginning in the deep mountains and lush forests. It shows the marvel- ous Buddhist shrines, Shinto temples, nestled villages, tea- shops, resting places, quaint inns, rivers, rapids, rural scenes, and of course, the people who worked and traveled this road. There were regal personages and royalty who trav- eled in their lacquered & screened carriages, religious pil- grams visiting the adjacent shrines, laborers, Samurai, ent- ertainers, cloistered women, processions of festivals and portable shrines, fierce horse-mounted armoured Samurai, a Buddhist priest riding a horse facing backwards, mixed out door bathing and so many more. The work also lingers on imp- ortant places & shows one the interior of celebrated shrines & temples, noble palaces, giving us valuable insights to the actual life styles of the times. Famous & holy places shown, great waterfalls, river crossing ferries, the lovely Gifu cormorants ply the Nagara River at night catching fish, mag- nificent holy rocks, deep gorges and canyons, epic poems cited. A most charming intimate insight to the life & times of early 19th century Japan. Cited in H. Kerlin: CATALOGUE OF PRE-MEIJI JAPANESE BOOKS & MAPS IN PUBLIC COLLECTIONS IN THE NETHERLANDS, p.373-4, as item #873. This was bound in several variants, 197 full page illustrations by Nishimura Chuwa. Several are connecting, that is to say, 3-4-5 make a single image of a famous place in panoramic form. See E. Papinot: HISTORICAL & GEOGRAPHICAL DICTIONARY OF JAPAN, Kiso Kaidoh p.285-6; Nakasendoh p.429 for more details. The set is in very good condition, with rubbed & bit soiled covers for volume one only, the balance clean, occasional old worm pin-holes, but not detracting from the overall look & value. By and large a most stunning guide book and period reference to Edo period life. Scans can be sent by email.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      [Wien], 22. X. 1814. - 1 S. 8vo. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief) und rotem Siegel. An seinen Sohn Friedrich Joseph Müller (1768-1834), "Kammerthürhüter in der Antichambre Sr. Majestaet des Kaisers; Gegenwärtig zugetheilt, der kaiserlichen Frau Großfürstin Odenburg": "Da Du geliebter Sohn! Gegenwärtig in der Abwesenheit Deiner zu bedienenden kaiserlichen Hoheiten, vielleicht ein Viertelstündchen geschäftsler hast; - so ersucht Dich Dein 77jähriger alter Vater, dessen Augen mit jedem Tag dunkler werden, beykommende stumpf geschriebene Federn, zu verbessern. Welche nicht mehr die gehörige Spitze und Spalte aushalten, wirf weg. - Laß von Deinem Karl neue kaufen und schicke mir solche durch ihn so bald es möglich ist. Ich werde sie auf der Stelle vergüten. Ich umarme Dich innigst in Gedanken! Deine brave Mutter grüßet und küsset Dich herzlich; so wie Deine Schwestern. Wir beyden Alten können uns nur in unserer Wohnung über die sehnlichst gewünschte und so segenreiche Gegenwart, der so fest gebliebenen großen ergebensten Monarchen und Ihrer ruhmwürdigsten Feldherren, Staatsmänner und Minister, in der Stille freuen, da uns Jahre drücken, wir daher nicht mehr vermögend sind die Wonne zu genießen, die Du geliebter Sohn in so reichhaltiger Fülle empfindest [ ]". - Müller kam nach dem Studium in Halle über Engagements in Hamburg, Roswalde und Linz 1763 an das Wiener Burgtheater, wo er bis 1801 nicht nur als Schauspieler, sondern auch als Direktor wirkte (vgl. DBE). Im Auftrag Kaiser Josephs II. knüpfte er Kontakte zu bedeutenden Theaterpersönlichkeiten seiner Zeit, u. a. zu Lessing und Wieland, und konnte einige der besten Schauspieler seiner Zeit für das Burgtheater gewinnen. Sein Sohn Friedrich Joseph wirkte von 1785 bis 1804 als Hofschauspieler, danach als k. k. Kammerdiener.

        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. 2 volumes only (lacking atlas volume of plates), quarto. (11 1/2 x 9 inches). Half-titles, 9 engraved plates by J. Byrne, John Pye, W. Woolnoth, I. Scott, Edward Finden and S. Middiman after William Westall. (Plates and pages on either side toned). 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.
