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.

        Presidential Document Signed, on parchment, folio, Washington, July 24, 1815

      - This visually appealing document is a ship's passport with dual engraved maritime vignettes below the scalloped top margin and Presidential seal affixed at lower left corner. .President Madison and James Monroe as Secretary of State have signed this maritime document acknowledging that the ship Lucas of Salem, Nathaniel Sage, commander, belongs to the United States. Also signed by the Collector of the Port of Salem, Will R. Lee. Fading to manuscript portions, but President Madison' signature is strong, Monroe's signature is somewhat lighter. Ships' passports were used for US vessels sailing in the Mediterranean. The passports resulted from an agreement in 1795 to allow the passage of ships in return for payments to the Barbary pirates who required countries to pay tribute in exchange for not capturing that country's ships and crews. America was one of the countries who agreed to pay for safe passage. These passports identified ships which had safe passage. The scalloped edge of the passport shows that the top portion had been cut and sent ahead to be matched when, in this case the Schooner Weymouth, arrived. An historic document with great visual appeal. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        [Japanese manuscript of flags from all over the world].[Japan, ca. 1837]. (28×21 cm). Japanese manuscript showing 87 hand-coloured flags, with names in Dutch and Japanese for the countries and only in Dutch for most cities, all except the first, measuring ca. 3.5×5.5 cm. Contemporary binding in traditional Japanese style heavy paper wrappers without spine.

      Japanese manuscript showing brightly coloured flags from cities and countries from all over the world, mostly focussing on Europe and especially the Netherlands. It includes flags of Brazil, Chile, China, England, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Norway, Poland, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, the United States, etc, and often includes variant naval flags.The first page shows a large flag of the Netherlands (twice the size of the rest), with the coat of arms as used since 1815, combining the coat of arms of the House of Orange-Nassau and that of the former Dutch Republic. The flags in the manuscript all date from ca. 1827/37. The flag shown for the United States never existed, and the stars for the states, arranged to form a larger star, have been slightly smeared, making it difficult to be sure which flag was intended. With minor water stains throughout, only faintly visible on most pages. Wrappers rubbed and with a small restoration near the spine. Despite these flaws, still an attractive flag manuscript throwing light on many flags whose history remains obscure.

Four engraved plates. xvi, 332 pp., 2 leaves of publisher's ads. 8vo, cont. grey-green polished half-calf & marbled boards, spine gilt, black leather lettering piece on spine. Edinburgh: W. Blackwood, et al., 1815. Second edition, "with [considerable] additions." "In 1812 Cuvier published a mammoth five volume work on vertebrate fossils. In a lengthy preliminary discourse, he discussed the implications of fossils for the history of the earth. The preface was quickly translated into English and published as Cuvier's theory of the earth, which indeed it was. Cuvier had studied and mapped the Paris basin, and he argued that the abrupt transition between formations proved that the earth had undergone successive revolutions. The radical change in fossil populations between formations was further evidence of repeated catastrophes. Catastrophism was not a new doctrine, but Cuvier was one of the first to support it by detailed fossil evidence... "The Essay was first published in 1813. For this [1815] edition, a section of the Paris basin was included, adapted from another Cuvier work, but with an added limestone face as a bit of Scottish geological whimsy."-Ashworth & Bradley, Theories of the Earth 1644-1830 (Linda Hall Library: 1984), 48. A very fine and pretty copy, with half-title, from the library of Sir. Joseph Radcliffe, Bart., with his armorial bookplate. ❧ Porter, The Making of Geology, p. 209-this book "became the most popular general account of the Earth in Britain in the 1810s." .

        On the Relation between the Specific Gravities of Bodies in their Gaseous State and the Weights of their Atoms

      London: Baldwin, Cradock and Joy, 1815. First Edition. Boards. Near Fine. First Edition. vii, [1], 479, [1] pp. Modern 3/4 leather over marbled boards with new endpapers. This important paper by Prout is on pages 321-330 and is unsigned (Prout's authorship was later revealed by chemist Thomas Thomson). In: Annals of Philosophy, Vol. VI, July to December 1815 (entire volume offered). Boards. In this important paper Prout "calculated that the atomic weights of all elements were integral when the atomic weight of hydrogen was taken as unity. In a correction (1816) he added that hydrogen might be the primary matter from which all other 'elements' were formed...the two hypotheses, of integral atomic weights and of the unity of matter, became known ambiguously and singularly as Prout's hypothesis. It was a continuous source of inspiration to chemists and physicists until the work of F. W. Aston on isotopes in the 1920s." (DSB 11&12, p173).

        Viaggio di La Perouse intorno al Mondo

      Milan: Dalla Tipgrafia Sonzogno e Comp, 1815. Four volumes bound in two, small octavo, with a folding world map outlined in colour and 16 hand-coloured plates; a nice set in contemporary quarter calf, flat spines gilt, the marbled sides a little rubbed. Italian edition with coloured plates. Quite uncommon: the first Italian edition of the voyages of La Pérouse, with a lovely series of handcoloured plates based on the original images of Gaspard Duché de Vancy done for the official French edition. Part of their charm lies in the way that they have been simplified to suit the format of the Italian edition. The existence of this Italian edition is testament to La Pérouse's enduring fame throughout Europe, appearing as it did before even Captain Cook's voyages were translated (Navigazioni di Cook, 1816-17). It was almost fifteen more years before Peter Dillon published his discovery of the wreck of the Astrolabe and Boussole on Vanikoro and the map for this edition therefore still shows La Pérouse's track finishing at Botany Bay. The disappearance of the entire La Pérouse expedition overshadows what was in reality a great Pacific voyage. While primarily a voyage of exploration and discovery, the possibilities of the fur trade and of French expansion into the Pacific and Asia were evidently investigated in depth. La Pérouse's habit of forwarding records whenever opportunity offered ensured their survival. The first portion was forwarded by sea from Macao; the second (Macao to Kamchatka) went overland with De Lesseps, and the final despatches from Botany Bay. 'Published as part of a series, Raccolta di Viaggi dopo quelli di Cook, of which, according to a series title, this comprised Volumes I-IV but is complete in itself. Strathern also lists a Livorno 1827 edition and a Naples 1831 edition. There is also a Naples 1833 edition' (Forbes). It was evidently sold by subscription: two extensive lists of subscribers appear at the end of the first and last volumes (respectively 26 and 27 pp., so a serious business). In both of them the name of Lover or Lovera figures, who is identified as being from Milan. "G. Lovera" also appears in gilt on the spines of the two volumes.

        Third person War-date Autographed Letter Signed

      Oak Hill, 1815. unbound. 1 page, 6 x 5 inches, Oak Hill, no date but most definitely written in 1815 (as Secretary of State) to Colonel Charles Stewart Todd, in full: "Mr. Monroe will receive Col.

He was Aide-de-Camp to General William Henry Harrison in the Battle of Thames and in March 1815, he was made Aide-de-Camp to Governor Isaac Shelby, with the rank of Colonel. James Monroe lived at Oak Hill for several months in 1815 and, along with his brother Andrew, listed the plantation as having 35 slaves. The main mansion would not be constructed until 1822.
