         CONNECTICUT COURANT, EXTRA. JANUARY 6, 1815. THE PROCEEDINGS OF A CONVENTION OF DELEGATES FROM THE STATE OF MASSACHUSETTS, CONNECTICUT, AND RHODE-ISLAND; THE COUNTIES OF CHESHIRE AND GRAFTON IN THE STATE OF NEW- HAMPSHIRE; AND THE COUNTY OF WINDHAM, IN THE STATE OF VERMONT [caption title]

      Hartford, 1815. [3]pp. Folio. Previously folded. Some wear and minor loss along old folds, with a few tissue repairs, slightly affecting text. Four-inch tear from upper fore-edge of second leaf. Light dust soiling and foxing. Good. Untrimmed. A rare report of the proceedings and resolutions of the Hartford Convention, together with a number of tables containing relevant statistical evidence, printed by a local Hartford newspaper, the CONNECTICUT COURANT. The Convention comprised a series of secret meetings held by New England Federalists in December 1814 to discuss their common grievances against the federal government, to demand several constitutional amenments to redress what they considered to be an imbalance of power among regions, and for some delegates to call for secession. As the convention formally ended on January 5, 1815, this supplement to the COURANT, published the following day on January 6, is undoubtedly the earliest printed account of the completed proceedings. Only one copy located by OCLC, at the Connecticut History Society.

         An account of the kingdom of Caubul, and its dependencies in Persia, Tartary, and India; comprising a view of the Afghaun nation, and a history of the Dooraunee monarchy.

      London Longman 1815 - First edition. 4to., xxvii, 675pp., 2 maps (1 large folding), 13 hand-coloured aquatint costume plates and 1 uncoloured aquatint view, occasional light foxing and offsetting, contemporary half calf, rebacked, marbled sides and edges, an excellent copy. Scarce work with fine colour plates. As the global struggle between Britain and Napoleonic France came to a climax, the Indian authorities under the governor-general, Lord Minto, became increasingly concerned that a hostile alliance of Persia, Afghanistan, and the newly powerful Punjab, under the Sikh ruler Ranjit Singh, might coalesce on the northern frontiers of British India. A French embassy was already in the Persian capital, and so in 1808 Elphinstone (1779–1859), an administrator who had originally gone to India to take up an appointment with the East India Company, was sent to treat with Afghan ruler Shah Shuja, and Charles Metcalfe was dispatched to make a defensive alliance with Ranjit Singh. Elphinstone's mission to Kabul was formally a failure. Suspicious of the British, the Afghan court refused to allow the embassy to proceed beyond the border town of Peshawar. The present work, however, continued to inform British policy on the north-western frontier until the 1840s. (ODNB). Abbey Travel 504; Colas 960; Lipperheide 1483.1 [Attributes: First Edition]

         Humphry Davy: Historic Autograph Letter Signed - Announcing His Invention of the Coal Miner's Safe Lamp

      1815 - Historic Autograph Letter Signed from Davy to the Reverend Dr. Gray. In Davy's 1818 book on the coal miner's "safety lamp", Davy states, "When I turned my attention particularly to the subject [of coal mine methane explosions], which was in August, 1815, in consequence of a letter from the Rev. Dr. Gray, there appeared little hope of finding an efficacious remedy" [preventing future mine explosions]. The famous letter offered, here, is dated Oct. 30, 1815 and constitutes Davy's first announcement of his successful development of the coal miner's safety lamp. This letter heralds the unfolding of an important scientific event. The letter begins, "Royal Institution / Albemarle St. / Oct. 30." The body reads, in part, "My dear Sir, As it was in consequence of your invitation that I endeavored to investigate the nature of the fire damp [methane gas] I owe to you the first notice of the progress of my experiments." Davy goes on to say, "I have never received so much pleasure from the result of my chemical labours, for I trust the cause of humanity will gain something by it." After thanking Dr. and Mrs. Gray for their hospitality when Davy visited the coal region of Sunderland Co., Durham, he signs with his characteristic, "H. Davy." Numerous folds, and a ¾ inch "chip" out of the top of the last leaf, otherwise in very good condition with a major portion of Davy's red wax seal still attached. Davy's "chemical labours" saved many lives in the coal mines of England during the industrial revolution.

         The Works [together with] Don Juan.

      London: John Murray; John Hunt,, 1815-24. 14 volumes in seven, octavo (164 x 100 mm). Mid-19th-century green morocco, spines in compartments with gilt titles, marbled sides, endpapers and edges. Bound without the half-titles or advertisements leaves. Spines sunned, extremities lightly rubbed, ink mark to headcap of vol. iii, all sound and internally very fresh, generally excellent condition. First collected edition of Byron's works, complete as published sequentially by John Murray 1815-1820, bound as a handsome near-contemporary library set with the complete first edition sequence of Don Juan in the foolscap octavo issue, published by John Hunt from 1821 to 1824, the year of Byron's death. The first four volumes of Murray's collected edition were printed together in 1815 with "In Four Volumes" to their title pages in 1815, the fifth volume in 1817 with the title page amended "In Five Volumes", the sixth in 1818, the seventh in 1819, and the eighth in 1820 completing Childe Harold. In this set these first eight volumes have been reordered and renumbered by hand in order to reunite the four cantos of Childe Harold. The collected works contain, in order of publication: Childe Harold's Pilgrimage: Cantos 1 and 2; The Giaour, The Bride of Abydos; The Corsair, Lara; Ode to Napoleon Buonaparte, Poems (including "Lines inscribed upon a cup formed from a skull"), Hebrew Melodies (including "She walks in beauty" and "The destruction of Semnacherib"); The Siege of Corinth, Parisina, Poems (including "Stanzas for Music"); The Prisoner of Chillon, Manfred, The Lament of Tasso; and Childe Harold's pilgrimage: Cantos 3 and 4; Beppo, and Mazeppa. The final six volumes constitute the complete first edition of Byron's magnum opus Don Juan, cantos I to XXVI, in the foolscap octavo issue. The first volume, cantos I and II, had been originally printed in quarto format. The whole set thus presents an uncommon opportunity to obtain Byron's major lifetime works together in early uniform bindings and in satisfying editions.

         James Madison

      1815;1817;1822. A bound set of four Manuscript Documents Signed and accomplished by a secretary, one page each, 8.25" x 13.5", Washington, [no date], with faint embossed seals at bottom left over seal drawings. Each document is a period clerical copy of a presidential appointment of various dates. Folds, some rough margins.

The set includes two appointments of Texas revolutionary John T. Mason (1787- 1850) as United States Marshal for Kentucky by James Monroe, December 16, 1817 and January 9,1822; as well as Monroe's appointment of William H. Crawford (1772 - 1834) as Secretary of the Treasury, March 5,1817. The set also includes James Madison's appointment of Joseph Anderson (1757 - 1837) as Comptroller of the Treasury February 28,1815. Bound together at left with a yellow ribbon. Usual folds, some marginal wear including minor tears and chips.

Only docketed "A" on the verso, the intended purpose of the documents are at present a mystery. The docket would suggest that perhaps these papers were prepared for a trial. The only commonalities in these undated copies are that James Monroe signed each document (three as President and one as Secretary of State) and all three appointees were prominent southern Democratic-Republicans. Of the three appointees named in the documents, John T. Mason is perhaps the most colorful being not only a Marshall in Kentucky, he served as Secretary of the Michigan Territory and in 1830 became a Texas land speculator and important figure in the Texas Revolution. William H. Crawford not only served Secretary of the Treasury but also as Madison's Secretary of War and Ambassador to France. Before Madison appointed Joseph I. Anderson Comptroller of the Treasury, the Tennessean had served in the Senate from 1797 to 1815. Anderson remained in office at the Treasury until 1836.

An unusual collection certainly worthy of further research.

         Mairie de Lyon. Habitans de la ville de Lyon.

      S.l. [Paris], Imprimerie de J. Moronval, s.d., (mars 1815), - placard in-folio (54 x 41 cm). en feuille. Edition parisienne de la seconde proclamation (11 mars 1815) du comte de Fargues (1777-1818), maire de Lyon depuis le 22 novembre 1814 et que le retour de Napoléon surprit en plein exercice de ses fonctions. C'est un remarquable exemple de palinodie politique, puisqu'elle avait été précédée, quatre jours auparavant, d'une autre déclaration condamnant fermement l'ex-Empereur et réaffirmant un attachement indéfectible au Roi. Mais voici que Napoléon, entré à Lyon le 10 mars dans un délire d'enthousiasme révolutionnaire, imposa au maire un démenti public de ses propos, ce qui donne la prose suivante : "Habitans de Lyon, vous revoyez dans Napoléon, celui qui vint arracher, en l'an 8 notre belle patrie aux horreurs de l'anarchie qui la dévorait ; qui, conduisant toujours nos phalanges à la victoire, éleva au plus haut dégré la gloire des armes et du nom français (.). Ce remarquable opportunisme ne sauva pas le malheureux Fargues : il fut remplacé par Gabriel Jars dès le 30 mars 1815 et ne recouvra la mairie de Lyon qu'après le 17 juillet. Il consacra d'ailleurs l'essentiel de la fin de son mandat à réprimer les menées bonapartistes dans sa ville.

Setterwall 3979. Överstelöjtnanten Didrik Reinhold Brunow (1783-1820) lät även trycka ett tal till Karl XIV Johan hållet i frimurarlogen i Kristianstad 1818. Resan som skildras här går framförallt i Tyskland genom ett stort antal städer och slagfält, där den förträfflige kronprinsen hyllas; hans långa och välbyggda hållning, hans godhet, klippans fasthet och säkerhetens styrka. Annars är det nog mer en reseskildring än ett historisk verk, och skildrar även Göteborg och Bohuslän.

         Daniel Boone

      December 19, 1815. Manuscript Document Signed “Daniel Boone” (cousin of the pioneer), "John W. Lilliston,” and “William Boone” as witnesses, one page, 13” x 16”. Mason County, Kentucky, December 19, 1815. Small holes where folds cross not affecting legibility; folds expertly reinforced on verso. Scalloped at top edge. Very good condition.

In part, “Indenture ... Between Jacob Boone and Mary his wife of the Town of Maysville, County of Mason and State of Kentucky of the one part, and Robert C. Lilleston of the town, County & State aforesaid of the other part...” For $471.88, Jacob and Mary Boone sells to Robert C. Lilleston “one certain tot or parcel of Land, in the town of Maysville, lying and being on the lower side of limestone Street, commencing at an Alley between said premises and Thomas Hopkins tot...” The signatures “Jacob Boone” and "Mary Boone” are clerical. Two related manuscript documents on verso, one signed “William Paton” and “J. Brown” as “commonwealth Justices for the county” and “Marshall Key” as Clerk of the Court of Mason County.

Jacob Boone married Mary DeHart in Mason County, Kentucky, in 1774; Kentucky was part of Virginia until it was granted statehood in 1792. Jacob Boone’s grandfather (Joseph Boone, Sr.) and pioneer Daniel Boone’s father (Squire Boone) were brothers. Signers of this indenture as witnesses, William Boone and Daniel Boone, were two of the nine children of Jacob and Mary Boone.

After the Revolutionary War, pioneer Daniel Boone settled on the Ohio River in Limestone, Kentucky, and established a tavern and trading post. In 1787, Limestone was incorporated as Maysville in honor of John May who owned most of the land, but the town was still called Limestone by many into the early years of the 19th century. In 1787, Boone was elected to a seat in the Virginia state assembly. He became a land speculator, buying and selling thousands of acres of frontier land in Kentucky. This led to financial difficulties because, according to John Mack Faragher in “Daniel Boone: The Life and Legend of an American Pioneer,” Daniel Boone “lacked the ruthless instincts that speculation demanded ... for him business obligations were personal matters, and doing the right thing frequently meant taking a financial loss...” By the summer of 1789, Boone had left Maysville for Point Pleasant, farther up on the Ohio River. Faragher notes, “There is little ... to suggest that Boone left Limestone in utter despair and none to suggest such impoverishment. His deepening failure in real estate, which must have been painfully obvious to him, was not yet publically evident ... By no means did he abandon his pursuit of profit, but continued for several more years to work as a small merchant, militia sutler, and shipper.” In 1798, Mason County issued a warrant for Daniel Boone’s arrest for debt.
