        [War of 1812]: Manuscript Orderly Book for the Second Regiment, First Rifle Brigade, United States Army, as kept by Lt. William House at Camp Springfield, Baltimore, Maryland, Fall of 1814

      Small quarto. 161pp. Original roan and marbled papercovered boards. House's contemporary ownership signature and rank on the front board. Boards a little rubbed, still a nice, very near fine example, housed in a custom black half-morocco and marbled papercovered boards, clamshell case.The orderly book consists of approximately 10,000 words and includes various types of entries: Briagade and Regimental orders, morning reports, duty assignments, sick lists, news from other fronts of the War, a list of field and staff officers, results of a court martial, and other details of the day-to-day operation of an Army Regiment. While most of the entries are in House's hand, a few entries appear to be in the hand of the officer responsible for issuing the order or report; a few other are in House's hand, but appear to be signed by the issuing officer.The British Army carried out its successful campaign against Washington, D.C. between August 19-29, 1814, eventually buring the city before turning its attentions to Baltimore. Its opening sally against that city resulted in the death of the British commander, General Robert Ross, and the attack by sea was stymied on September 13th by the batteries at Fort McHenry (which, of course, inspired Francis Scott Key to write the poem that was adapted to become "The Star Spangled Banner", which was eventually designated as America's National Anthem). The British fleet withdrew of October 14th. the successful defense of the city eventually lead to the signing of the Treaty of Ghent two months later, formally (if not practically - see the Battle of New Orleans) ending the War.Lt. House's orderly book for the Second Regiment picks up the Baltimore campaign a week after the bombardment of Ft. McHenry and includes details of preparations against a subsequent British attack that was never mounted, reading in part: "Major General Watson will form the Riflemen in his division into Patapsco Neck as far the Battleground [North Point, the site of the death of General Ross], the mouth of Bear and Colesgate Creeks, that the officers and men may be made acquainted with the ground on which they have to act on the approach of the enemy."A densely written and detailed volume shedding light on the daily operation of the Army during wartime, and a fascinating artifact of a little-studied war that was vital to the survival of the nation. .

        Junger Maler seine junge Frau als Madonna malend, ihnen zu Füßen ein Kind.

      . Feder in Schwarz, mit Sepia laviert, auf festem Bütten. 16,1:12,8 cm. Papier leicht vergilbt, minimale Fehlstelle im rechten Rand, verso Klebereste an den Ecken.. Der Vater Ludwig Richters war seit 1814 Schüler der Dresdener Akademie, 1817-1820 bei F. Matthäi (1777-1845). 1824 oder 1825 ging er nach München zu P. von Cornelius (1783-1867), der ihn beeinflusste. 1826/27 hielt er sich im Kreis von J. Schnorr von Carolsfeld (1794-1872) in Wien auf, 1827-1829 folgte ein Aufenthalt in Italien, meist in Rom im Nazarenerkreis. 1830 kehrte er nach Dresden zurück und wurde Lehrer an der Akademie. Seit 1839 litt er an einer fortschreitenden geistigen Erkrankung, 1845 wurde er aus dem Lehramt abgelöst und in der Heilanstalt Sonnenstein interniert. Die mit sensiblem Strich aufs Papier gebrachte Zeichnung ist vermutlich in Italien um 1827/29 entstanden, denn die den Hintergrund bildende Landschaft trägt südlichen Charakter. Das Bildmotiv ist ein Zitat des christlichen Themas "Der heilige Lukas malt die Madonna".

        Traite d'economie politique ou simple exposition de la maniere dont se forment, se distribuent et se consomment les richesses.

      Paris, Renouard, 1814.. 2nde Edition. 2 Bde. 8vo. Neue, schöne Halblederbände.. Zweite Ausgabe des Hauptwerkes, konnte erst nach Napoleons Sturz erscheinen. - Die Erstausgabe erschien 1803 (Jahr XI), weswegen Say bei Napoleon in Ungnade fiel. Es ist Says Hauptwerk, "which passed through many editions and has been translated into many languages. It was the first really popular treatise on political economy ever published in France; his main divisions and his terminology have become classical and have served as a model for innumerable subsequent treatises" (Palgrave, 1894-1901). Say (1767-1832), "inspired by Smith's Wealth of Nations, he wrote his Treatise... which introduced Smithian ideas to France and other European countries... His influence dominated officially-taught economics in France for most of the nineteenth century..." (Blaug 752).

Westall were associated in the drawings, which are worthy even of the splendid architectural monuments they commemorate, while the engraving was carried out by such masters of aquatint as J. Bluck, J.C. Stadler, F.C. Lewis, D. Havell and others of like reputation. The result was the production of plates of unequaled merit in their particular line" (Prideaux, pp. 125-6).Abbey, Scenery, 278; Tooley 5; Prideaux pp. 125-6. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Views of Australian Scenery, Painted by W. Westall, and Engraved by Byrne. Nine Very Fine Plates. - Price One Guinea

      London: G. & W. Nicoll, 1814. Oblong quarto, series of nine engraved plates, as issued in blue floral wrappers with a black leather gilt titling-label; some light spotting and the offsetting which bedevils this work, but a very good copy, neatly rebacked, in a modern folding box. Westall's marvellous views from the Flinders voyage. The superior large paper issue of this series; a smaller version on thinner paper was published at the same time for 15 shillings, while this version sold for a guinea.William Westall (1781-1850) was studying at the Royal Academy School when, aged 19, he was appointed as the draughtsman on Flinders's great circumnavigation of Australia with the impressive salary of 300 guineas. Throughout the voyage he made hundreds of fine drawings, although some were lost or badly damaged in the disastrous wreck of the Porpoise in 1803. Westall survived the wreck but sent his drawings on ahead to England while he sojourned in China, not personally returning until 1805. Over the next few years he cemented his position as an associate of the Royal Academy, but it was only after Flinders himself returned to England in 1810 and the Admiralty began planning the published account of the voyage that he settled down to complete a series of larger water-colours suitable for reproduction as aquatints. The series of published views were also included in the Voyage to Terra Australis of the same year, but there was evidently great demand for the images, some of which are the earliest representations of remote parts of the Australian coast. The subjects are: Kangaroo Island, Malay Road, Wreck-Reef Bank, Murray's Islands, King George's Sound, Port Jackson, Port Bowen, Gulf of Carpentaria and Port Lincoln.This is the separate publication of Westall's engravings of Westall's paintings that were used to illustrate the full publication of Flinders's voyage. The imprints to the plates, however, are dated February 1814, suggesting at least the possibility of earlier publication given that the books weren't issued until July; Wantrup adduces no evidence to support his claim that the series was published "at the same time as, or shortly after, the publication of Flinders' volumes"

(lithographic title), [i] (character list, contents), [ii] (blank), 3-168, 2ff. (blank), 169-363, [i] (blank). Engraved. With text in German and Italian. Rectangular piece of paper laid down to title carrying the first three letters of the title, "IL F," verso with "Archiv" showthrough. Manuscript title in pencil to recto of second blank leaf between acts: "Die Zauberfloete 2ter Theil." Minor soiling to title; occasional very light foxing; small purple stains to foot of title. A very nice, wide- margined copy overall. . First Edition of the full score. Köchel 6, p. 711. Hoboken 12, 566. Sonneck: Dramatic Music, p. 119. Hirsch IV, 1574. RISM M4772 (with title transcribed from a later issue). Conforms to the Hoboken copy, with watermarks "F" and "G" and without plate number to pp. 58, 62, 81, 82, 106, 116, 125, 226, 249, 253, 264, 305, and 333; pp. 5 and 33 with PN 1095, p. 68 with PN 1069. First performed in Vienna on September 30, 1791. The edition uses a text different from Mozart's autograph and earlier editions of the piano-vocal score, including Simrock's. The differences affect many numbers, including Tamino's aria, "Dies Bildnis ist bezaubernd schön" (here, "So reizend hold, so zaubrisch schön"); the duet of Pamina and Papageno, "Bei Männern, welche Liebe fühlen" (here, "Der Liebe holdes Glück empfinden"); and Sarastro's aria "In diesen heil'gen Hallen" (first line identical to both versions). It has been argued that Simrock obtained a copy of this version of the libretto from Constanze Mozart and that it represents the original one (Freyhan: The Authentic Magic Flute Libretto: Mozart's Autograph or the First Full-Score Edition?).

        Moeurs et coutumes des peuples, ou, Collection de tableaux representant les usages remarquables, les mariages, funérailles, supplices, et fêtes des diverses nations du monde

      Paris: Madame Veuve Hocquart, 1814. Two volumes, quarto, with 144 handcoloured plates; in fine condition, a very large copy, completely uncut, in a handsome contemporary binding of half crimson roan, flat spines banded and lettered in gilt. Acknowledging its debt to the Baudin publication. Lavishly illustrated study of the peoples of both old and new worlds, concentrating on ceremonial events and native customs. The spirit behind the work is very much that of the Enlightenment - a tremendous curiosity about newly discovered parts of the world and about human behaviour, particularly for ritualised behaviour evolved in isolation such as native punishments and social rituals.The first section, Europe, is dealt with in just 22 of the 144 plates, the other more heavily illustrated sections being Asia, Africa, America and Oceania. This last Pacific section includes images of New Holland, Van Diemens Land, New Zealand and Hawaii. There are two plates depicting Australian scenes: the 'Mariage de la Nouvelle Hollande' which depicts a rather violent scene of abduction, and the more bucolic 'Repas des habitans de la terre de Diemen', in which a family group fishes next to a river - one man is lowering a clearly defined crab onto a fire. The accompanying four-page description is derived, as a note acknowledges, from the voyages of Cook, Turnbull, Péron and Freycinet, as well as an unnamed edition of George Barrington.The New Zealand section includes a very fine depiction of a war canoe of great splendour, while a good section on Tahiti and the Friendly Isles is accompanied by no fewer than four plates, one of them a particularly good depiction of the Tahitian Chief Mourner. One of the most interesting plates of the entire work is the last, depicting a scene in Hawaii: 'Prêtre des Iles Sandwich Tabouam un terrain', in which a grey-haired priest marks out an area of taboo.The work was published by the Parisian firm of the widow Hocquart, who had also published an equally rare edition of the work of Grasset de Saint-Sauveur in 1806 (Forbes, 371), as well as an important edition of the works of the physiognomist Lavater.The range of the book is particularly wide for such a comparatively early work, with plates, for instance, of an Iroquois warrior scalping his enemy, the funeral ceremonies of the Natchez in Louisiana, the 'anthropophages' of Brazil, or of an Unalaskan man in his kayak (perhaps after John Webber's original).Apparently the only copy of this work in an Australian institution is in the National Library of Australia, part of the Rex Nan Kivell collection. It is not recorded by either Ferguson or Forbes.

Contemporary full calf, with black lettering on spines. All paper edges hand-painted (green dots). Half-titles. First complete edition of the Hebrew Bible published in America. This work is the reprint of the second edition of the Joseph Athias bible (Amsterdam), with introduction and notes in Latin by Van der Hooght. Text without vowel-points or accents (It was not until 1849 that a vocalized Hebrew Bible was published in America (see Darlow & Moule 5168a; Rosenbach 171). This Biblia Hebraica is based on the 1661 critical edition edited by Johannes Leusden (1624-1699), a Calvinist theologian. In 1812 Jonathan Horwitz proposed the publication of a Hebrew Bible using the font of Hebrew type which he brought with him to the United States, but he soon discovered that he was not alone in his desire to produce such a bible. In early 1813, in the face of stiff competition, Horwitz sold the Hebrew type to William Fry and transferred his right to publish and the subscription lists to Philadelphia publisher Thomas Dobson; It were they who printed and published the present edition [Singerman 236, Goldman 4]. Binding rubbed, partly water-stained, and creased along spines. Lettering on spines mostly faded. Head and tail of spines slightly chipped. Previous owner's Ex-libris on inside of each front cover.

Very good condition.In full,?Dear Sir I have again taken up pen to write to you which is this fourth time since I have Recd any letter from you, and knowing that you have Recd some of my letters I made up my mind not to write to you again until I heard from you by Letter, in fact I knew not where to write to, but this opportunity by Mr Williams being so good I was compeled to Brake my promise. I am compeled to say you have treated me as well as all the Rest of your friends with a great deal of disrespect in not writing to let us know that you had Returned from Camp, and of your Situation and where you was home, I was always treated you as a friend and near Relation, and am sorry to say you have not done so by me Since you have been in that Country you Certainly have been undutiful to your poor old Father he has been once to see me since the death of your Mother and complains very much of your not Writing, he has wrote to me Several times beging of me if ever I hear from you to infirm him Imediately by letter. Mrs Bradshaw begs me to give you a little lashing for her ?" however as we at such a distance from each other and it has been so long since we had the pleasure of being together I will not quarrel with you any more at this time, but if we had you here I think we should be very apt, not only to quarrel but lash you in bargain ?"I shall say nothing about the neighbourhood as Mr Williams can inform you times is extremely hard here everything we have to buy is three prices and we can get little or nothing for what we have to sell I yesterday gave $6 for one Bushell of Salt and I have no doubt it will be $10 in a short time, you have heard before this that the British has taken the City and Alexandria and have burnt the Capitol with all the Push of the public Buildings, every man in this County from 18 to 45 has been called on and is now Stationed at Baltimore and ere this I fear many of them gone to their long home, for the British made an attack on Baltimore the day before yesterday and had a very smart engagement but was compeled to Retreat to there Shiping. Our Loudon Malitia was in the engagement but I have heard no particulars yet it is thought there will be constant fighting there untill the British takes the place or gets convinced they cannot do it - we have 18 or 20,000 men there and the place will not be surrendered without a great deal of Blood shed. I got a man to take my place for which I gave him $110. I had the good luck to get one not 18 years of age or else I should have been amongst them and my tower was for 6 months ?" my family is not very well at present the Children has been very unwell but are all better except John who was taken very sick this day ?" Linny was delivered of Another Son the 6th Inst and Calls his name Henry. She is very well at present Rose had a Son Born in May last ?" another one she had before was a boy and both Black, my family is now got up to the number of 13 and 2 that is out makes the Round Number of 15 ?" Tell Sally that her brother James was at my house this Week, and that himself and both her other Brothers are well, James Weighs about 190 ?" Mr Norris?s family is well . John Norriss Junr has been dead about 2 years & James Norriss is at Canada in the Army. I must conclude my letter as it is now half past Eleven OClock at night ?" Mrs Bradshaw and Anney Joins with me in Love to you and Sally and begs at the same time that you will Work Something to let us know how you all are. I must conclude my Subscribing my Self your friend and well wisher ?" Jesse Timms N.B. When Mr Williams moved out Linncy sent Sally several little Articles and I enclosed a small trifle to her in a letter I should like to know in your next of they were Recd.?That morning, at the dawn's light, aboard British shipping, HMS ""Tonnant,"" in Baltimore Harbor, Francis Scott Key, after witnessing the attack on Baltimore on the night of September 13-14, 1814, wrote the poem which became the lyrics of ""The Star Spangled Banner."" William Robertson (1783-1874), a slave overseer in Loudoun County, Virginia, moved to Harrison County, Ohio, after 1809. The ""Loudoun County Marriage Bonds"" lists Robertson as marrying Sarah Fernandis on March 8, 1809; Jesse Timms was Best Man. Robertson's mother was Mary Timms so Jesse most probably was related to Robertson. In 1812, Robertson enlisted under General William Henry Harrison and followed him through several campaigns. This may be why his good friend Robertson didn't answer Timms' four letters.In 1804, Jesse Timms (1768-1837) became manager of the Oatlands, a 3500 acre wheat plantation in Loudoun County, Virginia. Oatlands was owned by George Carter, great-grandson of Virginia Colonial Governor Robert ?King? Carter. The Loudon County Militia participated in the Battle of Baltimore and remained in the area for another week following the British retreat.In the Loudoun County ""Pole Tax on Free Negroes & Mulattoes - males only"" records for 1814, ""List of Jesse Timms,"" the names of 11 FN (""Free Negroes"") are listed with notations that three slaves are ""over 16."" Two other names are listed without a FN notation probably meaning they were Mulattoes. Timms' statement ""Rose had a Son Born in May last ?" another one she had before was a boy and both Black, my family is now got up to the number of 13 and 2 that is out makes the Round Number of 15"" may reflect the 13 (11 FN + 2 Mulattoes) plus the 2 Rose had. Jesse and Linncy Uln Timms (1781-1835) had three sons and three daughters, each born prior to 1814."

        The female American or the extraordinary adventures of Unca Eliza Winkfield. Compiled by herself

      Vergennes, VT: Pr. by Wright & Sibley for Jepthah Shedd & Co. 12mo (15 cm, 5.9"). 270 pp.. 1814 Early, uncommon edition of a unique Robinsonade: the trials and tribulations of an intrepid, bow-wielding young maiden born in Virginia to an English emigrant and a Native American princess. After being abandoned on an island by an unscrupulous sea captain after her money, the well-educated and resourceful Unca converts the local natives to Christianity; she eventually chooses to remain on the island as a missionary, happily wed to her English cousin. The work first appeared in London in 1767 and in America (in Newburyport, MA) in 1800; this Vermont printing is the second U.S. edition. The novel was pretty much ignored at publication and on republication in America, and disregarded by American literary scholars through the first half of the 20th century; but "Twenty-first-century scholars and students have by now sharply departed from this reception history and see The Female American as a crucial addition to literary histories of the Anglo-American novel and as a text characterized by complex intertextuality layered with political and social critiques" (Female American, edited by Michelle Burnham and James Freitas, p. 11). Provenance: Front pastedown with bookplate of prominent Americana collector Hall Park McCullough (1872?-1966). Contemporary sheep, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label; scuffed and rubbed with hinges (inside) tender and free endpapers lacking. One leaf with tear from outer margin down into lower margin, without loss of text; occasional small holes and edge chips, sometimes with loss of one or two letters without affecting sense; a number of leaves with short tear from lower inner margin, sometimes with minor losses; one leaf with small portion of outer margin torn away, affecting first and last words of about eight lines, with most of torn portion laid in; one leaf with lower outer corner torn away, affecting several words; and one leaf torn across, with 19th-century sewn repair. Otherwise age-toning and moderate foxing only. => An obviously much-read copy that can yet afford much further reading and study.

First performed in Vienna on September 30, 1791. The edition uses a text different from Mozart's autograph and earlier editions of the piano-vocal score, including Simrock's. The differences affect many numbers, including Tamino's aria, "Dies Bildnis ist bezaubernd schön" (here, "So reizend hold, so zaubrisch schön"); the duet of Pamina and Papageno, "Bei Männern, welche Liebe fühlen" (here, "Der Liebe holdes Glück empfinden"); and Sarastro's aria "In diesen heil'gen Hallen" (first line identical to both versions). It has been argued that Simrock obtained a copy of this version of the libretto from Constanze Mozart and that it represents the original one (Freyhan: The Authentic Magic Flute Libretto: Mozart's Autograph or the First Full-Score Edition?).

      Paris: Mequignon-Marvis, 1814. First Illustrated Treatise on Orthopedic Treatment of Hands Dutertre, P[ierre] (b. 1758). Chirurgie. Traite d'operations nouvelles, et inventions de mecaniques, servant de moyens secondaires pour en assurer le succes. 8vo. 85 [1]pp., plus 4-page "Copie de la lettre envoyee a M. le Docteur Dutertre. . ." bound between pp. [8]-[9]. Engraved frontispiece and 21 plates. Paris: Mequignon-Marvis, 1814. 224 x 138 mm. Modern quarter morocco, marbled boards, in period style. Some minor dampstaining, but very good. First Edition of the first separate illustrated treatise on the orthopedic treatment of hand injuries and deformities. Prior to the work of William Adams on Dupuytren's contracture (1879) few, if any, orthopedic surgeons operated substantially within the hand itself. Instead, like Dutertre, they treated injured and deformed hands externally with braces, splints, etc. In this remarkable but little-known book Dutertre describes braces and splints of his own invention, which are illustrated in the plates. Many of his patients had suffered serious burns to their hands; in such cases, Dutertre would incise the crippling scar tissue, but he appears not to have performed any more complicated surgical operations. According to Dutertre's obviously self-serving dedication to the King of France, all of the operations described in his Chirurgie were successful. Dutertre is not noticed in our surgical or orthopedic references, nor does he appear in Hirsch. Waller 2662.

        THE LIFE OF GEN. FRANCIS MARION, A CELEBRATED PARTIZAN OFFICER, IN THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR, AGAINST THE BRITISH AND TORIES, IN SOUTH-CAROLINA AND GEORGIA

      Baltimore: W.D. Bell & J.F. Cook, 1814.. 270pp. 12mo. Contemporary speckled calf, leather label, spine gilt. Boards and corners lightly rubbed. Modern bookplate on rear pastedown. Contemporary ownership signature on titlepage. Scattered foxing, toning throughout. Very good. The second edition, almost as hard to come by as the first edition of 1809, of one of the rarest of all southern military books and Revolutionary War accounts, compiled from information supplied by Gen. Peter Horry and written by the famed Parson Mason Weems. General Francis Marion, "The Swamp Fox," was one of the leading American commanders of the Revolution in the South. His brilliant operations in the Carolinas kept thousands of British troops tied down and contributed immensely to an ultimate American victory. Plain and unassuming, he was widely beloved by his contemporaries, and after his death this book instigated his ascent to legendary status. Horry, Marion's second in command for part of the war, supplied many of the facts for the book, although he was allegedly disgusted by Weems' flowery passages and disclaimed any connection with the book. What he disliked, others embraced, and the book went through many editions. All of the early editions are rare. DAB XII, pp.283-84. HOWES H650. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 33636, 33637.

        The PERPETUAL ALMANACK; or, Gentleman Soldier's Prayer Book: Showing how one Richard Middleton was taken before the Mayor of the City he was in, for using Cards in Church during Divine Service:

      being a droll, merry, and humurous Account of an odd affair that happened to a Private Soldier, in the 60th Regiment of Foot. The printer James Catnach was active in London from 1814 to 1838 but as there is a mention of Queen Victoria the broadside must date after 1837. Single sheet of thin white paper, 370 x 250 mm, 14¾ x 10 inches, 2 woodcuts beneath the title 55 x 80 mm, 2¼ x 3 inches, 1 showing Richard taken before the Mayor, the other showing Richard playing cards in church, the border to the text consists of 48 playing cards, a different suit for each side and including a total of 8 royal cards. The sheet has been folding twice, it is faintly browned in parts, with a small stain on the reverse near to lower edge which shows through slightly, otherwise clean, a touch of wear to edges, slight small creases to corners. A very good copy. The soldier caught playing at cards during the church service craftily shows the mayor how he reads the bible by identifying each card with a biblical story. This fictional story concludes with the mayor giving the soldier some money and beer, after telling him he is the cleverest man he has ever met. According to the British Museum a record of the incident can be found in Durham University Library Archives & Special Collections (Add.MS.1474). MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

        A new view of society:

      or, essays on the principle of the formation of the human character, and the application of the principle to practice.These are first editions of the third and fourth parts of Robert Owen's groundbreaking New View of Society which was published in four distinct - and bibliographically distinct - parts in 1814-1814. Podmore (Robert Owen: a biography. p.111), has the following relevant note:"Some time in 1812 Owen had published, anonymously, the pamphlet already referred to - A Statement regarding the New Lanark Establishment. During the same year he wrote his first Essay on the Principle of the Formation of Human Character, and published it early in 1813 under the title of A New View of Society. The second Essay appeared at the end of the same year. Both were originally published anonymously. The third and fourth Essays, though written about the same time and circulated amongst a large number of persons eminent in the social and political world, were not published until July, 1816."It is interesting to note that the Third Essay is dedicated "To the Proprietors of the Principal Mill Establishments for Spinning and Weaving in Great Britain and Ireland". And Owen then is self-confident enough to be able to give them a lecture in both morals and civic responsibilities. Addressing them as "Friends and Associates", Owen suggests that they should be aware of the fact that as industrialists they were "characters of interest and influence in society" and he asks them to join what Owen clearly thought was a crusade for better working conditions for industrial workers. It was, Owen suggested, in the power of industrialists to introduce improvements in factories and thus "contribute to the future well-being of those who are now, in ignorance and misery, contributing to our wealth".In the Fourth Essay, dedicated more traditionally to the Prince Regent, Owen points out that "the true origin of that misery may be traced to the ignorance of those who have formerly ruled, and of those whom they governed".tall 8vo., xvi + 53 + (1)pp., old library stamp on blank verso of title, well bound in later 19th century half morocco over marbled boards, spine gilt and lettered, top edge gilt.

These are first editions of the third and fourth parts of Robert Owen's groundbreaking New View of Society which was published in four distinct - and bibliographically distinct - parts in 1814-1814. Podmore (Robert Owen: a biography. p.111), has the following relevant note:"Some time in 1812 Owen had published, anonymously, the pamphlet already referred to - A Statement regarding the New Lanark Establishment. During the same year he wrote his first Essay on the Principle of the Formation of Human Character, and published it early in 1813 under the title of A New View of Society. The second Essay appeared at the end of the same year. Both were originally published anonymously. The third and fourth Essays, though written about the same time and circulated amongst a large number of persons eminent in the social and political world, were not published until July, 1816."It is interesting to note that the Third Essay is dedicated "To the Proprietors of the Principal Mill Establishments for Spinning and Weaving in Great Britain and Ireland". And Owen then is self-confident enough to be able to give them a lecture in both morals and civic responsibilities. Addressing them as "Friends and Associates", Owen suggests that they should be aware of the fact that as industrialists they were "characters of interest and influence in society" and he asks them to join what Owen clearly thought was a crusade for better working conditions for industrial workers. It was, Owen suggested, in the power of industrialists to introduce improvements in factories and thus "contribute to the future well-being of those who are now, in ignorance and misery, contributing to our wealth".In the Fourth Essay, dedicated more traditionally to the Prince Regent, Owen points out that "the true origin of that misery may be traced to the ignorance of those who have formerly ruled, and of those whom they governed". tall 8vo., xvi + 53 + (1)pp., old library stamp on blank verso of title, well bound in later 19th century half morocco over marbled boards, spine gilt and lettered, top edge gilt.

        Sic Tu, Germane, Triumphas!", vermutlich nach einer unbekannten Vorlage von Friedrich Wilhelm von Thiersch.

      1814 1814 - Kreidelithographie in Sämisch mit Lichtern, 1814, auf festem Velin. 32,9:33 cm. Inkunabel der Lithographie. – Bugfalte geglättet, Einriß am Unterrand. Literatur: Nagler 6; Thieme-Becker S. 444; Dussler 6; Winkler (Stuntz) 833.5 und Abb. 39; Freyberg L 4. 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 Œuvre 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.

Scarce collection of letters from Lord Nelson to his mistress Lady Emma Hamilton."The publisher, Thomas Lovewell, went bankrupt in 1817 and was forced to put the letters up for sale. They were purchased by Croker acting on behalf of the Admiralty and Government who were anxious that they were kept out of public circulation. Harrison is often cited as the editor but my own research years ago suggests that Oliver (a servant with whom Emma had quarrelled} was the culprit - although Harrison may have been involved too." quoted from Michael Nash, UK.The supplement in volume II, running from page 107 on, contains letters from Lord Nelson to Miss Horatia Nelson Thomson, Miss Charlotte Nelson, letters from Alexander Davison, Esq. to Lady Hamilton, a letter from Lady Hamilton to Alexander Davison, Esq., a letter from Lady Hamilton to Viscount Sidmouth, letters from Sir William Hamilton to Lady Hamilton, and numerous letters from Sir William Hamilton to Lord Nelson, and finally a number of letters from Lord Nelson to Sir William Hamilton.
