        Autograph Letter Signed to 'Your Royal Highness', MARIE AMÉLIE, (Viscount, Robert Stewart, 2nd Marquis of Londonderry, 1769-1822, Foreign Secretary)

      1815 - (1782-1866, Wife of Louis Philippe I, King of the French), as Duchess of Orleans, begging leave "to acknowledge . your Royal Highness's Letter", congratulating her "on your safe Landing" and offering "my Services, so far as they can be useful to your Royal Highness", he begs "your Royal Highness will use my apartments in Dover Castle if they can Accomodate your Royal Highness", if so he will "immediately send a Servant to prepare them", watermark 1812, 1 side 4to, London, 19th March no year but Castlereagh was Foreign Secretary, 1812-1822, and so during the momentous events of the 1st Restoration, the Congress of Vienna, Napoleon's Hundred Days and Exile, and the 2nd Restoration of 1815. At the Peace Conference in Paris he managed to prevent punitive measures on France and achieve some kind of 'equilibrium', though the Allies continued to occupy France under Wellington till 1819. In 1800 Louis Philippe had settled with his brothers in Twickenham, and, through the future Charles X, had become reconciled with his distant cousin Louis XVIII. He returned to Paris at the Restoration of 1814 and his vast estates were restored as far as possible. Then on 26th February 1815 Napoleon escaped from Elba and on the day of this letter was about to enter Paris. All Europe was agog. Louis Philippe had just sent his wife to England while he made north east. At Péronne he collected troops, waited three days, then went on to Lille where on the 19th March he was enthusiastically received and then joined by Louis XVIII on his way to Ghent in the Austrian Netherlands In fact the Duchess stayed in Dover town. 'Her Serene Highness the Duchess of Orleans and suite left Wright's Hotel, where she had stopped for a week confined by illness, yesterday for London, accompanied by her four children, and Count de Grave' ('Dover, March 26', quoted in The Times of 29th March 1814, 'from an Evening Paper'). The same issue of The Times tells how the Hon. Frederick Lamb, (younger brother of later Prime Minister Melbourne) sped with dispatches from Vienna, collected papers 'of the value of £20,000 belonging to the Duchess of Orleans' and left 10 hours before Bonaparte's arrival. At Ostend he 'secured a packet for Mrs FitzHerbert, for Monday, she being afraid to venture on account of the boisterous state of the weather'. Lamb ventured 'in an open boat', arriving safely on the Sunday evening in Ramsgate, 'where they learnt that a boat had that day been lost, and another driven away .'. Castlereagh's congratulations in the present letter were timely !

        A grammar of the Chinese language

      Serampore: printed at the Mission Press, 1815. First edition of the first Chinese grammar printed in English, 4to, pp. vi, [2], 280pp., original blue paper-covered boards, neatly rebacked in gray cloth; entirely uncut; minor dampstaining, occasional annotations in pencil; a very good copy; in a new cloth clamshell box. Morrison (1732-1834) missionary and translator for the East India Company, was a voluminous writer in both Chinese and English. His greatest work was his Dictionary of the Chinese Language which appeared in three parts 1815-23. This grammar was seen through the press by the missionary, Joshua Marshman who took a prominent part in translating the scriptures into the Oriental languages. The preface is dated Macao 1811, and it probably would have been printed at Canton except for the Imperial decree of 1812. It was finally published at the Mission Press in Serampore at the expense of the Directors of the East India Company. Cordier III, p. 1662; Graesse IV, p. 612; Lowndes II, p. 1618 ("a valuable work"); Ebert 14429; Astor Catalogue, p. 135; Trubner Catalogue of Dictionaries and Grammars, 1882 ("scarce").

        Autograph Letter Signed to Sir Henry Edward BUNBURY, (Sir Hudson, 1769-1844, Soldier, Governor of St. Helena, 1815-1821)

      1815 - (1778-1860, Soldier, Under-Secretary of State for War, 1809-1816), marked 'Private', sending [not present] "an Extract of the Letter of General GNEISENAU", (Graf August Neidhardt von, 1760-1831, Prussian Field Marshal), "previous to my departure from Brussels with Copy of the Remarks of the Duke of WELLINGTON which . I communicated to General Gneisenau", the writer apprehends that "the Prussian Army would be much grateful in having a Rocket Battery . in the same manner as was done to the Army of the Prince Royal of Sweden", (Jean Baptiste BERNADOTTE, 1763-1844, Napoleon's former Marshal, elected in 1810 to succeed the childless Carl XIII and from 1818 Carl XIV Johan of Sweden and Norway), for use against towns "when a defence might be attempted without the inhabitants or the Guards having the Means of resisting a regular Siege", 2 sides 4to., short title on conjugate leaf, London, 27th May crisp Sir Hudson Lowe was adept at picking up languages. His skill and much of his experience lay in commanding detachments of foreign troops in the Allied service, or as a staff officer attached at headquarters of Allied powers. In 1814, he was the first officer to bring to England the news of Napoleon's abdication. In 1815, during Napoleon's 'Hundred Days', he was in Brussels as Quartermaster-General to the Prince of Orange. He remained when, in April, the Duke of Wellington took over as Commander-in-Chief, but the Duke replaced him in May and he came back to London. War Rockets, invented in 1805 by (Sir) William Congreve at Woolwich, had no great accuracy but were very effective against troops at short range, or for setting fire to buildings. In 1813 Bernadotte, as Commander in Chief of the Northern Army, defended Berlin against the French, then in October joined in the Allied victory at Leipzig, where the Royal Horse Artillery used rockets to great effect. The Duke did not think highly of rockets, so in the present letter, Sir Hudson appears to be by-passing him. Graf von Gneisenau, as chief of engineers, had played a great part, along with Scharnhorst, in reorganizing the Prussian Army. His plan for the march on Paris in 1814 had led to Napoleon's downfall. In the Waterloo campaign of 1815 he was for a second time chief of staff to Marshal Bl

        The American Practical Brewer and Tanner : in which is exhibited the whole process of brewing without boiling... ...the French mode of tanning the heaviest soal leather in twenty-one days and calf skins in three or four. (Highly important)

      New-York: Printed by Van Winkle and Wiley, No. 3 Wall-Street, 1815. Large octavo, vii, [2], 12-246, [2] pages. Illustrated. First edition. An important and very early American beer-making manual. The great bulk of the book is devoted to the production of beer, including recipes for several different varieties, but it also "includes wine and an interesting description of the French method of handling the various Bordeaux growths" (Gabler). Also present is a final section on tanning. Coppinger was an Irishman who emigrated to America in 1802. He landed in New York, moved to Pittsburgh in 1803, and became a partner in Point Brewery. He obtained a number of patents on brewing, preserving, and on the construction of flat-roofed buildings. A great fan of Thomas Jefferson, he initiated a correspondence with the President in 1802. In 1810, he proposed establishment of a National Brewery to President James Madison, a project which never came to fruition. Coppinger maintained the correspondence with Jefferson through 1815, the year in which this book was published. In a number of letters, Jefferson inquires as to the progress Coppinger was making on its completion. In return, Coppinger requests that Jefferson become a subscriber. Surprisingly, there is no specific record of Jefferson having acquired the book for his library (Baron). Errata slip tipped-in at the title page. Foxing and dampstaining throughout. Untrimmed, in original blue, paper-covered boards, re-backed with tan paper, with printed spine label. Still, a handsome copy. While well-represented in institutional collections, this book is very rare in the marketplace, with just four copies coming to auction since the 1940s. [OCLC locates twenty-three copies; Baron, Brewed in America, pages 139-143; Gabler G17000; Noling, Beverage Literature, page 115; Rink, E.

        A Declaration of the Society of People (Commonly Called Shakers) Shewing Their Reasons for Refusing to Aid or Abet the Cause of War and Bloodshed

      Hudson and Goodwin,, Hartford: 1815 - Pamphlet, 8vo, sewn self wrappers, dbd, 23 pp. Some soiling, aging, and browning throughout, paper is somewhat brittle, edges have many folds, tears, and chips, but not affecting text. This pamphlet is a rare Shaker tract that presents their reasons for abstaining from war. While it draws generously from the "New Testament" to present their case, it also reprints excerpts from Massachusetts and New Hampshire laws that exempt Shakers from military service. No author is listed, but it has been suggested that this tract is the the work of Calvin Green and Seth Wells who have authored other Shaker pamphlets. The OCLC locates eight copies of this edition.

In the voyage context this is a little misleading, since so much exploration of the early nineteenth century would in fact continue in the spirit of the Enlightenment, but the Baudin voyage may well have been its purest expression, combining as it did scientific curiosity and research, territorial and geo-political ambition, and the spirit of enquiry on the widest scale.Sent out in 1800, in the first year of Napoleon's consulate, and only two years after the Napoleonic expedition to Egypt, the ships of the expedition returned to France, laden with specimens and replete with information, in March of 1804, just two months before the Senate's proclamation of Napoleon as Emperor. Live specimens from the "terres Australes" went directly to Joséphine and Napoleon's château at Malmaison on the outskirts of Paris, where kangaroos, emus and black swans would make their unlikely home in the imperial parkland under young gum and wattle trees brought back by the explorers. Although no trace of the introduced vegetation survives in the present-day, much reduced, gardens of Malmaison, the vignette on the title-page of this voyage account memorialises this extraordinary European acclimatisation of the southern exotic.Although the iconography of the southern land may not otherwise have translated into art, design and couture as completely as did the iconographic results of the Egyptian campaign, nonetheless the two can bear comparison in the collection of artefacts and natural curiosities, as well as topographical and other details, and their absorption into their host culture. Although Péron and Freycinet's lengthy account of the Baudin voyage was by no means on the scale of the astonishing Description de l'Egypte, which took twice as long to publish (the twenty years from 1809 to 1829) and consisted of 23 volumes in the first edition, nonetheless the two works whose publication overlapped have a certain similarity of approach and are equal testaments to the ambitions of the Emperor.The images, mostly after drawings made on the spot by the expedition's two most important artists Charles-Alexandre Lesueur and Nicolas-Martin Petit, are among the most beautiful ever conceived in their depiction of Australian Aborigines, particularly those of Tasmania, and of the natural history of the southern lands.The cartography of the voyage was of crucial interest: Baudin's instructions had included specific orders to complete the cartographic survey of the Australian coast; their examination of the western and southern coasts and Tasmania, as well as parts of the northern and eastern coasts, coincided with Flinders' circumnavigation, the two expeditions famously meeting up at the consequently named Encounter Bay in South Australia. With Flinders' subsequent imprisonment by the French, his captors were first into print with their mapping of Australia, the great Hydrographical Atlas appearing in 1812, two years before the publication of Flinders' narrative and charts, and thus the first full Australian atlas, a remarkable achievement for visitors rather than settlers.PublicationThis is an extremely good set of the first edition of the complete official account of the voyage. This set is in unusually fine condition, with the plates notably crisp and, where appropriate, with the delicate original hand-colouring.The official account of the Baudin voyage appeared over ten years, in two quite distinct sections. This is the full set with both sections together in matching bindings: four volumes represent the official narrative of the voyage (usually seen on its own and neatly christened the "general reader's edition"), published between 1807 and 1816 as two volumes of text and a small folio atlas in two parts (including some charting, chiefly of specific ports, and the famous views and portraits of native peoples). The second part, in two volumes, which was quite separately published and actually distributed by a different bookseller, published between 1812 and 1815, is the much rarer Hydrography of the voyage with its large-scale coastal mapping of Australia appearing as an imperial folio atlas accompanied by the volume of partly narrative text.History of the voyageBaudin's two ships, the Géographe and the Naturaliste, left Le Havre on 19 October 1800 and reached Mauritius six months later, but shipboard quarrels and illness caused a mass defection of scientists and sailors. Having rejigged his crew, Baudin set sail for New Holland, sighting Cape Leeuwin on 27 May and anchoring in Geographe Bay three days later. He sailed north and examined Rottnest Island and Swan River, but the two ships became separated on 11 June. The Géographe finally anchored at Shark Bay on 27 June, but had left by the time the Naturaliste arrived. The latter vessel stayed on in Shark Bay to make an extensive survey - including the discovery of the Vlamingh plate - while Baudin and the Géographe worked along the difficult coast past the North West Cape. The two ships ultimately arrived in Timor in August and September; tropical diseases were already causing deaths among the crew.In November they sailed south for Cape Leeuwin where Baudin, ignoring his instructions to begin charting the south coast immediately, headed for Tasmania, making the D'Entrecasteaux Channel in early January. The two vessels began a close survey of the east coast, again becoming separated. Hamelin on the Naturaliste crossed Bass Strait and made a survey of Western Port before running for Port Jackson. Meanwhile Baudin began his survey of "Terre Napoleon", meeting Matthew Flinders at Encounter Bay in April. Worn out, Baudin turned for Sydney, but chose to again round the southern tip of Tasmania, meaning that he did not arrive off Port Jackson until 17 June, his crew severely weakened by scurvy.Hamelin had actually already headed out to search for Baudin in Bass Strait, but the combination of a storm and poor provisions saw him back in Sydney a few days later, and the two ships stayed in Sydney until November. Warmly and hospitably entertained by Governor King, the French spent their time recuperating and making sense of their collections.In Sydney Baudin purchased a small vessel which he named the Casuarina, placing the relatively young officer Louis de Freycinet in charge. The Casuarina, just 29 feet in length, was acquired to help make the difficult inshore surveys, and Louis' appointment should be understood as an early notice of his skills in charting. The three vessels left Sydney together, but Baudin decided to send the Naturaliste directly back to France, and Hamelin reached Le Havre on 7 June 1803, having sailed via Mauritius.The Géographe and the Casuarina made close surveys of King Island, Kangaroo Island and the Gulf of St Vincent ("Golfe Joséphine"), before continuing to King George's Sound in western Australia, whence they returned to Shark Bay and the northwest before finally reaching Timor on 7 May 1803. They made a quick return visit to the northwest coast of Australia - their third - and reached Mauritius in July, where Baudin died on 19 September. Command was given to Pierre-Bernard Milius, who had been recuperating in Port Louis where he had been left by Hamelin. The decision was made to abandon the Casuarina, and the remaining crew transferred to the Géographe, which returned home on 25 March 1804, almost three-and-a-half years after they left. All pages in the imperial atlas expertly mounted on new binder's stubs; a few very sporadic spots, but the set in fine untrimmed condition, the plates crisp and the colouring bright.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Gießen, 20. I. 1815.

      1815. 1¾ SS. 4to. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Freiherrn, dem er zur Probe eine von ihm angefertigte Übersetzug des "Befreiten Jerusalems" (aus dem dritten Gesang) zukommen läßt: "[...] Es ist schon länger mein sehnlichster Wunsch gewesen, dem lieben Vaterlande in seinem Freiheitsmay auch eine Mayenblume weyhen zu dürfen. - Ich mögte dem befreyten Teutschland das befreyte Jerusalem schenken. Dies ist mein reines Streben, dem ich alles zu opfern wünsche, was in meinen Kräften steht [...] Griesens Übersetzung, gestehe ich, scheint mir keine hohe Aufgabe zu lösen. Unerlässliche Forderungen an den, der das Gedicht der Christenwelt verteutschen will, scheinen mir zu seyn: Gedankentreue: Reimreinheit und Durchführung des weiblichen Reims. Die Unterlassung eines dieser drey Gesetze scheint mir schon allein genügend, den Geist des Musters zu verwischen [...]". - Der Bruder von Karl und Paul Follenius lehrte als Professor der deutschen Sprache und Literatur an der Kantonsschule Aarau, ging nach Zürich und war von 1832 bis 1836 Mitglied des Großen Rats. "Sein Haus wurde Mittelpunkt eines literarisch-politischen Kreises deutscher Emigranten; Follen war Mentor und Mäzen Gottfried Kellers und Georg Herweghs [...] Follen selbst schrieb romantische Balladen und Romanzen" (DBE). - Mit kleinen Randläsuren.

        The Nautical Almanac and Astronomical Ephemeris, for the Year 1818.

      London: John Murray, 1815. Octavo, in original polished calf. Rare copy of the Nautical Almanac for 1818, a fundamental inclusion in the shipboard library of any Admiralty-sponsored voyage. The Almanac was used for reckoning the longitude at sea by the lunar method, and was closely studied by officers of the Royal Navy. The continued publication of such almanacs is further proof that the invention of the chronometer, whilst revolutionary, did not completely supersede the necessity for other fail-safes, and indeed the rarity with which any copies survive is ample testament to the hard use to which the almanacs were put.The Nautical Almanac was the brainchild of Astronomer Royal Nevil Maskelyne, who in the 1760s started publishing the volumes for the use of mariners: Cook famously had any number with him on his voyages (that for 1769 printing detailed instructions on observing the Transit of Venus, the impetus for his Endeavour voyage). It quickly became Board of Longitude practice to publish them as far in advance as practicable, precisely because of the rigours of long voyages of exploration. The present copy, for example, gives the data for the year 1818 but was actually published as early as 1815 (these are intriguing dates: it was of course at the end of the Napoleonic Wars that Britain began to look again to distant seas, and the 1818 edition would have been a fundamental inclusion in King's library on board the Mermaid, for example).Of special interest to the publishing history of the Board of Longitude is a short catalogue of twenty books relating to navigation published by their authority and sold by John Murray from his Albemarle street bookshop. The list makes mouth-watering reading now, proving that extreme rarities such as the Principles of John Harrison's Watch (1767), and the three astronomical works relating to Cook's voyages published chiefly under the authorship of William Wales in 1777, 1782 and 1788. Harrison was being sold as a straight remaindered book for 5 shillings (!), the others all being sold in sheets, the first two for a guinea, the third for half that. Faithfully rebacked; very good condition.

Fine ¶ "The text, which is by Lewis Engelbach, originally appeared in [Ackermann's] Repository of Arts in the years 1809 to 1813, under title 'Letters from Italy'. No plates appeared with the Repository version, however, except Map Number 2, which was published in October 1810, Part 22, Number 145. The imprint date here has been altered to 1815. The book is often said to contain seventeen or eighteen plates by Rowlandson, but in fact probably only nine are by him, Numbers 1, 3, 8, 10-13, 15 and 16. Of these only Number 1 [the frontispiece] carries Rowlandson's signature." (Abbey) N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition.
