God
Eyre for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown. See pictures. Fore-edge painting faded. A little edge wear, shelf wear, and scuffs to boards and spine, but minor and the binding is handsome. "Fore-edge painting" on blank front endpaper. Rear blank endpaper has memorable verse numbers written on it in graphite. Table of contents has "Pentateuch" written in graphite, referring to the first five books. No annotations in text. Occasional dog-eared page. Conditioning of leather, in past, has caused a ghosting of the turn-ins onto the endpapers. A very attractive, tiny, 1814 edition, Holy Bible decorated with a fore-edge painting. Just a lovely Bible, I'm not really sure how else to describe it; perhaps... rich and sumptuous binding and edge decoration. Note, "miniature" is sometimes used as a technical term, meaning less than 3"; this book is slightly larger than that, at 4.75" tall. Physical Attributes - Measures 12 x 7 x 4 cm, with signatures of twelve, but the 1873 Catalogue of the Percival Library lists this edition as 24mo, which makes sense. Straight grain Morocco leather. Boards bordered with gilt fillets, inner roll of vines and leaves with corner florets. Three raised bands to spine, top and bottom compartment richly tooled; the other two compartments have "Holy Bible" and "London 1814" in gilt. All edges gilt. Faded fore-edge painting depicting (probably) a punt (boat) on a river, near a grain mill or water lock. Pages unnumbered, but the complete Old and New Testament, with a title page for both books. Condition - See pictures. Fore-edge painting faded. A little edg … [Click Below for Full Description]

Alf layla wa-layla - English].
London, printed for William Daniell by Thomas Davison, 1814. Folio (330 x 413 mm). (2), 99, (1) pp. With 17 India-proof mounted engravings with tissue guards. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards with blind-and gilt-tooled ornamentation, spine recently rebacked. First separate edition: the story of the Hunchback from "The Arabian Nights' Entertainment", in the translation by the Rev. Edward Foster initially published in 1802, with engravings by William Daniell (1769-1837) after paintings by Robert Smirke (1752-1845). "What Brian Alderson has called the 'cocoa-table book' formula was applied to the 'Nights' as early as 1814, when William Daniell's 'The Adventure of Hunch-back' appeared, a handsome selection from Forster's adult version (Wiliam Miller, 1802, repr. 1810) intended as a juvenile complement to the adult book. The latter was produced in a small as well as large format, but, with their magnificent engravings by, among others, William Daniell from Robert Smirke's paintings, all three publications must have been beyond the pocket of most readers" (Caracciolo). - Some brownstaining and foxing throughout. Chauvin V, p. 181 (& cf. IV, p. 92, no. 239). Caracciolo, Arabian Nights In English Literature (1988), p. 39, with illustration (fig. 3). OCLC 2925884. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

[WAR OF 1812]. WILLIAM CHARLES
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: , 1814. Oliver Hazard Perry's victory in the Battle of Lake Erie caused the loss of the British fleet there in September, 1813. Then, in September 1814, Thomas Macdonough's victory at the Battle of Plattsburgh on Lake Champlain caused the British, with French Canadian allies and financiers, and British arms makers, to fear that the Yankees might take Canada next. This beautifully colored print by William Charles shows King George III frantically baking more ships to replace those lost to American victories on the Great Lakes. It is a companion to John Bull and the Baltimoreans and Johnny Bull and the Alexandrians.[WAR OF 1812]. WILLIAM CHARLES.Print.

An ambitious work, it bears witness to an important era in the development of modern medicine, as Sibly looks to combine an older hermetic tradition with new Enlightenment-era insights into the physical universe. In the final section of the work, Sibly touts his remedies, Lunar Tincture and Solar Tincture, developed to act upon female and male ailments, respectively. Composed from the 'pabulum of the universe', these medicines, Sibly claims, cure everything from gunshot wounds to dog bites.". Item sold as is please see description and photos.

Edinburgh: Printed by James Ballantyne & Co. for Archibald Constable & Co, 1814. "Second Edition," stated on title page. Published anonymously in 1814, only one week after the first printing of 1000 copies sold out in two days, this second edition (what today we would call the second printing) still did not reveal the author's name. It was Scott's first venture into prose fiction and is widely accepted as the first historical novel. It has the first issue point: "our" for "your" in the first line of text of p.136 in Volume 2, although, again, sthis is the second printing, one week after the first printing.

[Bard, Samuel]
[New York: ca.1814]. Autograph manuscript, 25 pp. pen and ink on paper, with manuscript corrections and deletions. 8vo (10-1/4 x 8 inches). Original manuscript commencement speech on the topic of the formation of a medical library, delivered to graduates of Columbia's College of Physicians and Surgeons by the influential early American physician, Samuel Bard (1742-1821), founder of the King's College (Colombia) Medical School, the New York Hospital, and longtime president of Columbia's College of Physicians and Surgeons. Bard was raised in New York City, received his medical degree in Edinburgh, and went into practice with his father, also a physician, in 1765. "Interested in improving the education of American physicians since his student days at Edinburgh and impressed by what fellow student John Morgan had achieved in Philadelphia (founding the first medical school in America at what is now the University of Pennsylvania), Bard and several other physicians founded in 1767 New York's first medical school -- the country's second -- at King's College" (ANB). In 1769 Bard delivered the school's first commencement address, published that year as "A Discourse Upon the Duties of a Physician, With Some Sentiments on the Usefulness and Necessity of Publick Hospital." The speech so impressed the city's leaders that a thousand pounds was pledged to form a new hospital, and a charter from King George III in 1771 created the New York Hospital. Bard's practice suffered some during the Revolution because of his early Loyalist sympathies and he lost his position at King's College, which … [Click Below for Full Description]

Some light foxing to title page, else very good. Owner's stamp shown in photo 4. An important volume of the AMERICAN LAW JOURNAL, reprinting Thomas Jefferson's THE PROCEEDINGS OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES, IN MAINTAINING THE PUBLIC RIGHT TO THE BEACH OF THE MISSISSIPPI, ADJACENT TO NEW ORLEANS and the reply to Jefferson, Edward Livingston's AN ANSWER TO MR. JEFFERSON'S JUSTIFICATION OF HIS CONDUCT IN THE CASE OF THE NEW ORLEANS BATTURE. The Jefferson and Livingston pamphlets address one of the bitter controversies of Jefferson's presidency. Livingston, a prominent New Orlean's attorney, claimed ownership of a strip of beach (the batture) at New Orleans which had long been used as a common boat landing. Jefferson asserted ownership up to the high-water mark and had a federal Marshall forcibly dispossess Livingston. The case became a celebrated case of the use of federal power and continued to be bitterly argued, so much so that Jefferson felt constrained, four years after leaving the presidency, to present his legal reasoning in a pamphlet, one of only three full-scale works published under his name during his lifetime. This was first published in 1812, and appears here in an augmented edition, with corrections and additions supplied by Jefferson for this printing. The status of the Livingston piece is more complicated. An edition with a Philadelphia, 1813 title page is ge … [Click Below for Full Description]

Littell, William
Louisville, Kentucky: From the Press of William Farquar, 1814. First edition. [2], 180 pp. (pages 3-10, 13-18 and 179 in facsimile). 12mo. "The first humorous book produced West of the Alleghanies [sic]" (Howes). "Festoons of Fancy is not only the first important book of poems printed west of the Alleghenies, but it is almost certainly the first book of any kind printed in Louisville" (Streeter). Littell (1768-1824) was a lawyer and author who, after a stint in western Pennsylvania, settled in Kentucky in 1801. He published several import law reference works that were early efforts to codify Kentucky law. His satires, Epistles of William, Surnamed Littell, to the People of the Realm of Kentucky (1806) and Festoons of Fancy (which includes the earlier work), were not well-received at the time, and were seen as "proofs of his eccentricity, frivolousness, and immorality. Today they are acknowledged as important first examples of frontier humor" (DAB).

A fine binding from the shop of the French-born Auguste Marie, Comte de Caumont, dating from his period at 1 Frith Street, which he occupied from 1803-1814.

Brown, Jacob (1775-1828)
West Bloomfield, NY: Aug. 30, 1814. [1] p. plus integral address leaf. 4to on a folded folio sheet. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

This is, as the title indicates, a philosophical examination of the subject rather than a rigorous mathematical presentation as in his other, more famous work (see Laplace, Théorie analytique des probabilitiés, 1812). This Essai grew out of a lecture he had given at the École Normale in 1812 - the same year that he published his Théorie analytique. It was used, essentially unchanged, as the introduction to the second and third editions of Théorie analytique (see Laplace, Théorie analytique, 1820) He indicates that he was initially led to the study of problems in celestial mechanics by his early … [Click Below for Full Description]

THOMAS JEFFERSON
John Napier, who is also credited with inventing logarithms and pioneering the use of the decimal point, first published his rule in 1614. While spherical trigonometry was the foundation for many scientific pursuits including astronomy, celestial navigation, geodesy (the measurement and mathematical representation of the Earth), architecture, and other disciplines, Napier's Theorum remained largely unknown in America because of its complexity. Since it was so important to his own scholarly pursuits, Jefferson, the Sage of Monticello, was the perfect person to school a professor friend on this important, but complicated mathematical formula.For instance, a navigator's distance and position can be determined by "solving" spherical triangles with latitude and longitude lines—essentially very large triangles laid out on a curved surface. Astronomers apply similar principles; stargazers imagine the sky to be a vast dome of stars, with triangles laid out on curved (in this case concave) surface. The distance of stars can be calculated by the viewer, who is considered to be standing at the center (the Earth) and looking up at stars and planets as if they were hung on the inside surface of the sphere. In architecture, spherical triangles fill the corner spaces between a dome that sits on foursquare arches—called a dome on pendentives.THOMAS JEFFERSON.Autograph Manuscript.

Anonymous [HAWKER, Lt. Col. Peter].
LonJohnson and Co, St Paul's Church-Yard, 1814. [Firearms reference] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (19 x 12cm), pp.xvi; 150. Publisher's drab grey paper-covered boards, printed title label to spine, edges untrimmed. Contents clean, covers a little bumped and marked, joints worn, chipped to crown of spine. A very good example of a rare book in first edition. According to a loosely inserted news-clipping from the Antique Trades Gazette, a similar copy (uncut in original boards) had sold at auction in Sept 2008 for £3000. Celebrated diarist, author, soldier and target shot, Hawker had served with the 14th Light Dragoons under the Duke of Wellington during the Peninsular War. He published his "Advice to Young Sportsmen" in 1814, a popular work with nine impressions in his lifetime. The first edition of his shooting classic did not credit Hawker as author and was printed in small numbers, principally for private circulation among his friends. An Australian review in 1893 claimed "probably no book on the subject of sport ever enjoyed so wide or so long sustained a popularity as the Instructions to Young Sportsmen"

Giovanni Battista Venturi (15 March 1746 - 24 April 1822) was an Italian physicist, savant, man of letters, diplomat and historian of science. He was the first to call attention to the importance of Leonardo da Vinci as a scientist, rather than simply as an artist. He compiled, edited and published many of Galileo's manuscripts and letters. In this book on the history and theories of optics, he recounts the observations of Bonaventura Corti, who discovered protoplasm in cells in 1774, but whose observations were overlooked until protoplasm was discovered by Treviranus in 1811. Venturi restates the original observations made by Corti, who later, in 1839 was finally credited with the first description of protoplasm. He also gives a history of the dioptra by recounting the Hero of Alexandria's treatise on the subject.

Mildmay was discovered in Lady Rosebery's bed chamber disguised as a common sailor. 'It seemed that some men, if they had pleasure in committing the crime of seduction, received still greater gratification by boasting of it, and telling their victims to what a sate of degradation they were reduced. It would be perceived by his letters, that, having enjoyed the person of this lady, it became his object to blazon forth his triumph by carrying her away to a distant climate'.

1814. E. Sibly, M.D. A key to physic and the occult sciences with Culpeper's Herbal Super book on medicine and Influence of the occult, astrology (Sibly is celebrated for the natal horoscope he cast of the United States of America, published in 1787 and still cited) and botanic remedies as well as animal magnitism/mesmerism, angels, proof of God A fascinating book mixing occult metaphysics (animal magnetism, astrology -including a weird horoscope and death by guillotine of the royal family or France - alchemy) plus every day Herbal medicine and chapter on pregnancy with engravings of stages of fetal development. Full page engravings some hand colored Large book 10 1/2 x 8 1/2 in Rebound in quality half Red morocco leather, custom label, hand marbled boards, new endpapers A few pages have some Worm holes and foxing but in solid shape A rare synthesis of theology, natural philosophy and medical science, the book argues for a microcosmic understanding of the human body as a composite of the four essential elements. An ambitious work, it bears witness to an important era in the development of modern medicine, as Sibly looks to combine an older hermetic tradition with new Enlightenment-era insights into the physical universe. In the final section of the work, Sibly touts his remedies, Lunar Tincture and Solar Tincture, developed to act upon female and male ailments, respectively. Composed from the 'pabulum of the universe', these medicines, Sibly claims, cure everything from gunshot wounds to dog bites.". Item sold as is please see description and photos.

*** Important Jefferson Book*** Hall, John E., ed: THE AMERICAN LAW JOURNAL. VOL. V.... Baltimore. 1814. xii, 299pp. Half antique calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, leather label. Light toning. Some light foxing to title page, else very good. Owner's stamp shown in photo 4. An important volume of the AMERICAN LAW JOURNAL, reprinting Thomas Jefferson's THE PROCEEDINGS OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES, IN MAINTAINING THE PUBLIC RIGHT TO THE BEACH OF THE MISSISSIPPI, ADJACENT TO NEW ORLEANS and the reply to Jefferson, Edward Livingston's AN ANSWER TO MR. JEFFERSON'S JUSTIFICATION OF HIS CONDUCT IN THE CASE OF THE NEW ORLEANS BATTURE. The Jefferson and Livingston pamphlets address one of the bitter controversies of Jefferson's presidency. Livingston, a prominent New Orlean's attorney, claimed ownership of a strip of beach (the batture) at New Orleans which had long been used as a common boat landing. Jefferson asserted ownership up to the high-water mark and had a federal Marshall forcibly dispossess Livingston. The case became a celebrated case of the use of federal power and continued to be bitterly argued, so much so that Jefferson felt constrained, four years after leaving the presidency, to present his legal reasoning in a pamphlet, one of only three full-scale works published under his name during his lifetime. This was first published in 1812, and appears here in an augmented edition, with corrections and additions supplied by Jefferson for this printing. The status of the Livingston piece is more complicated. An edition with a Philadelphia, 1813 title page is ge … [Click Below for Full Description]
