        Etchings Of Remarkable Beggars, Itinerant Traders And Other Persons Of Notoriety In London And Its Environs

      London: John Thomas Smith, 1815 [i.e. 1816]., 1816. folio. partly hand-coloured etched title & 48 etched plates. later half morocco, top edge gilt, rebacked with most of spine mounted (corners worn, some foxing, generally light but some of the plates more heavily affected). A later but fuller issue of the work, with forty-eight rather than the usual twenty-three plates. Some of the plates were republished in 1817 under the title Vagabondiana; Or, Anecdotes Of Mendicant Wanderers Through The Streets of London., which contained thirty-three. Smith's etchings are among the earliest attempts to depict the poor of London in a realistic way, serving as fore-runners to Busby's Costumes of the Lower Orders of London (1820) and Mayhew's London Labour and London Poor (1861-62). They present "a dramatic survey of street folk, blind beggars, cripples, the indigent poor of all kinds.and hawkers of trifles, observed with objectivity." (Houfe, Dictionary of Book Illustrators, p. 149) Smith had studied sculpting under Nollekens and mezzotinting under John Keyse Sherwin, after which he was appointed Keeper of Prints and Drawings in the British Museum.

        NATURAL AND STATISTICAL VIEW, OR PICTURE OF CINCINNATI IN THE MIAMI COUNTRY, ILLUSTRATED BY MAPS. WITH AN APPENDIX, CONTAINING OBSERVATIONS ON THE LATE EARTHQUAKES, THE AURORA BOREALIS, AND SOUTHWEST WIND.

      Cincinnati. 1815. - 251,[4]pp. plus two folding maps. Contemporary tree calf, spine elaborately gilt, black leather label. A presentation binding, as this book was issued either in boards or in a plain sheep edition binding. Scattered foxing, else a fine copy. With a presentation inscription, as given below. In a half morocco and cloth box. One of the most notable and important early Ohio books, by one of Cincinnati's most famous residents, in a remarkable copy inscribed on the front fly leaf: "For the honorable Thomas Jefferson with the respects of his very obedt. servt. Dan. Drake." The book, modeled on Jefferson's own NOTES ON THE STATE OF VIRGINIA, covers the geography, antiquities, topography, medical conditions, and government of southern Ohio. "The work is almost entirely original, and has been drawn upon largely by all subsequent writers on the subject" - Thomson. The maps are a plan of Cincinnati and a map of Miami county. The author, Dr. Daniel Drake, was one of the first great physicians in the West. He was involved in the founding of numerous Ohio and Kentucky institutions and wrote a number of important works, especially medical, on the area. This book, issued when he was thirty, was the first to achieve national notice. Despite the imprint date of 1815, a delay in obtaining the maps, which were engraved in Philadelphia while the book was printed in Cincinnati, delayed issue until Feb. 16, 1816. One of Drake's good friends was Josiah Meigs, the commissioner of the General Land Office and an acquaintance of Jefferson. Drake asked Meigs to send Jefferson this presentation copy, and on March 1, 1816, Meigs wrote to Jefferson: "My friend Dr. Daniel Drake of Cincinnati, Ohio, has requested me to transmit to you a Copy of his work, entitled 'Picture of Cincinnati.' I presume it will gratify you as an elegant and valuable work." Meigs also described Drake as "a sincere and faithful friend of our free Institutions," signaling that Drake was a good Republican. On April 7, 1816, Jefferson wrote to Meigs: "I have referred [sic] asking the favor of you to return my thanks to Dr. Drake for the copy of his account of the state of Ohio which he has been so kind as to send me until I could have time to peruse it. I have done this with great pleasure and may now express my gratification on this able addition to the knowledge we possess of our different states; and I may say with truth that were all of them as well delineated as that which is the subject of this volume, we should be more accurately and scientifically known to the rest of the world. With my thanks for this mark of attention be pleased to accept the assurance of my great esteem & respect. Th: Jefferson." This volume would have come into Jefferson's hands after the sale of his main collection to the Library of Congress in 1815, and so became part of his third and final library. Hence it does not figure in Sowerby's catalogue of Jefferson's library, and was one of the group of books widely dispersed after Jefferson's death a decade later. It does not have Jefferson's usual marks of ownership of his initials next to the signature letters; he may have assumed the presentation was identification enough. A wonderful association copy of a significant book. HOWES D465, "aa." SABIN 20822. STREETER SALE 1355. THOMSON 346. Emmet F. Horine, DANIEL DRAKE, PIONEER PHYSICIAN OF THE MIDWEST (Philadelphia, 1961), pp.116-17 (citing Meigs and Jefferson letters).

        A MAP OF THE STATE OF OHIO FROM ACTUAL SURVEY.

      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).

A. Pugin, F. Nach, F. Mackenzie, and W.

Bluck, J.C. Stadler, F.C. Lewis, D. Havell and others of like reputation.

Also a Plan for improving the Naval System, as far as it regards that most Useful Set of Petty Officers, the Midshipmen. By an Officer in the Navy.

      London: Printed by A.J. Valpy Sold by Law and Whittaker, 1815 - Octavo. Original green on blue paper-covered boards, paper label to the spine. 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]
