      Philadelphia: John Melish, . 1815 - Large folding map, 46 x 51 inches, partially handcolored, backed on linen. Laid in original three-quarter roan and marbled boards, linen ties affixed to spine. Contemporary signature on front board, minor insect damage to linen, not affecting map. A very nice copy in fine contemporary condition. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. The second map devoted to the state of Ohio, a greatly expanded and revised version of the first, issued in 1807. Hough and Bourne were General Land Office surveyors, who took over and improved the work of the surveyor general of the United States, Jared F. Mansfield. Because of his position, Mansfield had access to original working materials of government agents. However, when he issued his MAP OF THE STATE OF OHIO FROM THE RETURNS IN THE OFFICE OF THE SURVEYOR GENERAL (1807), he issued in privately. Hough and Bourne evidently bought the copyright to Mansfield's work after he was killed in the War of 1812, then substantially expanded it, evidently based on their own work. This map, with their revisions, is "the first map of Ohio to show all the actual surveys within the inhabited part of the state."- Ristow. "This large and detailed map of Ohio shows rapid progress of the township grid from the original surveys in the eastern part of the state in the 1790s. In southern Ohio some of the areas claimed by land companies established in the colonial period were surveyed and parcelled out prior to 1795, and their irregular patterns, conforming more to topography than geometry, are in strong contrast to the tyranny of the grid. Similar collisions of old and new systems of land tenure and surveying can be seen elsewhere in the country, particularly along the lower Mississippi where a pattern of plantation strips running back from the river established by the French settlers encounters the later American squares. Such patterns in the landscape are best seen from airplanes; they reward the traveller with an atlas and a window seat" - Reese & Miles. . The present copy contains the ownership signature of Charles Shaler, Esq., the former U.S. District Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania during the years of 1853 to 1857. A quite rare map, with no copy appearing in Antique Map Price Records, nor is there a copy in Rumsey. The Streeter copy, the last to appear in book auction records, was sold by us to the Yale Map Collection in 1982. REESE & MILES, CREATING AMERICA 57. OCLC 16881206. STREETER SALE 1354.

Crisp and clean: @[bold]in superb condition. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this ambitious epic poem in twelve cantos on the events precipitating the Peninsular War and the flight of the Portuguese court to Brazil in 1807. Appended are a lengthy commendatory poem by the prolific poet, dramatist, and literary biographer José Maria da Costa e Silva (1788-1854) and a list of over 300 subscribers to the work.Thomaz António Santos e Silva (1751-1816) was born in Setúbal and studied medicine at the Universidade de Coimbra. The death of his patron, however, initiated a life of privation and tragedy. After eking out a living as a pharmacist, he moved to Lisbon in 1781 and began new careers as an instructor in French and English and a writer and translator for the theater. In 1790 he joined the newly formed Academia das Belas Letras, also known as the Nova Arcádia. The onset of complete blindness in 1796 halted his literary activities for nearly a decade until, with the aid of his doctors, he began composing poetry again. In his final years Santos e Silva published much verse on the Peninsular War, of which the @Brazilíada was his crowning achievement.---- Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 812 (without mention of the errata leaf).

Ex-Cruising Club Association library, their gilt initials to the tail of the spine, gilt stamp to the upper board, and bookplate to the front pastedown only, a little rubbed, head of the spine pulled, light toning to the text, but overall a very good copy. First edition. Extremely uncommon, COPAC lists copies in NMM and at Oxford only, OCLC adds seven copies in North America, and one at the Alexander Turnbull Library, New Zealand. Unusual naval conduct book, often referred to in the literature, but very rarely encountered. Claxton entered the service in 1804 as a first class volunteer on board the Melampus, seeing considerable action in her. He was later in the Leopard and was a witness to the surrender of the Chesapeake to her in 1807. In 1809 he joined the Barfleur, 98 guns, Vice-Admiral Berkeley, making lieutenant in December 1810. "During the latter year he appears to have been much employed on the detached service in the Tagus, where he rendered appreciated co-operation to the troops occupying the lines of Torres Vedras, and had command of the gun-boats attached to the army While belonging next from Oct. 1812 to March 1815 to the Ramillies [he] distinguished himself in command of the attack upon Baltimore in Sept. 1814; and was likewise present at the capture of the islands in Passamaquoddy Bay, and the bombardment of Stonington" (O'Byrne). He subsequently commanded the Tartar revenue-cutter on the Yarmouth Station - "the first vessel of the kind given to a naval officer" - and in 1834 was appointed Harbour-Master of Bristol "and is the officer under whose surveillance were built those celebrated steam-vessels the Great Western and Great Britain". Less laudably he was a prominent Bristolian campaigner against the abolition of slavery, offering to fight a duel with the agent of the anti-slavery candidate in the 1830 election. An excellent copy of a highly desirable title. [Attributes: First Edition]

XV) came to the attention of an Icelandic scholar in the Danish civil service, Grímur Jónsson Thorkelin, whose interest lay in the poem as a source of information about early Danish history. Through a royal grant Thorkelin was enabled to go to England in the year 1786 "to study the treasures of the British libraries" and in particular to examine the Beowulf codex. In due time he came back with two copies of the poem, now known as A and B. These copies he used in preparing his edition of Beowulf, which came out in 1815 (the item offered). Both copies have survived, and now make part of the manuscript holdings of the Great Royal Library in Copenhagen." (Kemp Malone)

        Observations on the Symptoms and Treatment of the Diseased Spine ... the Incipient Stages ... the Consequent Palsy

      London: J Callow, 1815 First Edition. A very good copy; number removed from frt. board; old inst. stamp on title; untrimmed; unopened. 8vo.,. There are two engraved plates. A little known work by this important military surgeon. Copeland served in Spain and returned to England to an appointment as surgeon at the Westminster General Disp.. He wrote an important book on rectal surgery and was responsible for the development of a new instrument for the removal of the septum narium. The book offered here is a remarkable supplement to Pott's treatise on the topic. It is Copeland's object to diagnose the ailment in its earliest stages, before disease of the bone and paralysis, and therefore try and avoid the worst consequences. Copeland is aware of the limited understanding of the disease and proffers his book as means to alert the physicians about what might be done. He has gone through the medical literature and periodical articles of other physicians to supplement his own observations on the earliest stages of the disease.

        This Geographical Plan of the Island & Forts of St Helena is Dedicated by permission to Field Marshal His Ro.l Highness The Duke of Kent and Strathearn By Lieu.t R.P. Read.

      1815 - London: Burgess & Barfoot, October 1815. First State. Original colour. Dissected and laid on linen, total 460 x 590mm. With 'A Descriptive Sketch of St Helena to Accompany Lieut. Read's Geographical plan of the Island' pasted on the reverse. Some wear to folds in linen. Antique map of the island of St Helena, the South Atlantic island chosen to house Napoleon during his second exile because of the ring of high cliffs that would make escape a virtual impossibility. This first state of the map, which was published to coincide with his arrival in October 1815, has the Governor's mansion, Plantation House, marked as 'The Residence of Napoleon'. In fact he never lived there: for the first two months he live in a pavilion on 'The Briars' estate (almost the centre of the map) before moving to Longwood House. The poor state of repair of Longwood, situated on a damp and windswept part of the island, is reported to have shortened the former emperor's life. The three later states of the map were changed as he moved around the island.
