        Substance of the Speech of George Holford, Esq. in the House of Commons... respecting the Confinement of Offenders in the Hulks

      London: Rivington & J. Hatchard, 1815. Octavo, 43 pp., original plain blue wrappers bound in; an excellent copy in green morocco gilt by Sangorski. Very rare: 'a criticism of the management of the hulks from the point of view of mortality and of the conditions of employment of the prisoners' (Ferguson). The disposition of the hulks was of great significance to the early history of transportation, and yet there are very few separately published works which discuss them in any detail, making Holford's tract an important contribution.George Holford (1768?-1839) was a Cambridge educated lawyer who served as MP for various constituencies from 1803 to 1826. Although in his early life a playwright and author of works on politics and religion, once he became an MP he established himself as a persistent crusader for prison reform, author of works such as An account of the General Penitentiary at Millbank (1828).The present work was penned largely in light of the 1812 Penitentiary Act (the Act which finally rejected Bentham's famous Panopticon design). Although Holford does not underestimate the cheapness of the hulks, he nonetheless sets out to prove to the House that 'great evils have prevailed in these prisons'. His account gives some detail of his own investigations into the subject, and is detailed on the fitting out of the Edgar, the "model" hulk established in light of the Penitentiary Act.

        Unbekannter. Mönch und Nonne bei Eisenach, undeutlich bezeichnet: C. Lauhn 1815

      - Unbekannter Künstler. Porträt des Räubers Johann Karraseck. 1803 . Radierung auf Papier. -- Technik: -- Radierung auf Papier. oben mittig datiert: "1803", verso unbekannter Sammlungsstempel (Lugt Nr. 3549). -- Maße: -- Platte: 22,2 x 14,8 cm. Papier: 23,4 x 16,2 cm -- Zustand: -- Insgesamt sehr gut, im Rand minimal fleckig, kleine Quetschfalte oben links. Winziger Knick unten links in der Ecke. -- Beschreibung: -- Am 6. August 1800 wurde der sogenannte "Räuberhauptmann" Johann Karraseck (1764-1809) in Seifhennersdorfbei Zittau verhaftet und wegen zahlreicher Raubüberfälle 1803 zu lebenslanger Haft verurteilt. Eigentlich ein Krimineller unter vielen seiner Zeit, hat sich dennoch um ihn ein wahrer Räuberkultgebildet, der ihn zu einem sächsischen Robin Hood stilisierte. All dies gehört in das Reich der Legendenbildung. Diebstahl, Gewalt und Mord prägten das Leben des Räubers, der wohl einer ganzen Gruppe vonVerbrechern vorstand. Doch bereits zeitgenössische Quellen benutzen ihn als Symbolfigur einer Modeerscheinung,die bis in unsere Zeit hinein in dem von der Gesellschaft zu Unrecht ausgegrenzten Dieb denVerwirklicher einer Sozialutopie sieht, die bewusst als Gegenmodell zu den jeweiligen herrschenden Zuständengeschaffen wurde. Dass diese Räuberromane zur Erbauung des gebildeten Bürgertums jeglicheÜbereinstimmung mit der Realität missen müssen, ist evident. Dafür sind sie aber wichtige Projektionsflächen,um ein gewisses Unbehagen an der sozialen Wirklichkeit im Schutzraum der Kunst zu artikulieren. Unsere Graphik eines geübten aber nicht näher zu bestimmenden Künstlers reiht sich in diese Mythologisierungdes Räubers ein. Im Typus einem graphischen Gelehrtenporträt vergleichbar, wie es um 1800 häufiganzutreffen ist, wird Karraseck nicht als Verbrecher charakterisiert, sondern als zu verehrende Person. Als Attribute sind ihm, Christus vergleichbar, seine Marterwerkzeuge beigegeben. --

        Description de 131 Geranions à l'usage de Ch. Dutrieu

      Paris 1815 - 8vo(20.6 x 12.7 cm). Contemporary half calf over tan speckled marble boards; gilt title and tooling on spine. Collation: [1], 83, [8- Index] pp. Text written on crisp and clean laid paper having identifiable watermark. Text covers description of 130 geranium species from different regions of world in two sections based on regular or irregular corolla. The text proceeds from introduction with general attributes of geraniums to observations of variations of corolla, floral leaves and standard varieties, which are the first 17 plants in the register. The following discussion covers 113 irregular varieties. In describing these varieties the author notes concurrence or variance in description to that of other botanists. The natural location of each species is noted along with flowering season. The most prominent are those found in eastern part of Mediterranean. Both Latin and French names are provided for each plant. This is complemented at end of manuscript with information on cultivation. Not all plants described are listed in the index, indicating that the author set the work aside for completion. There is no geranium number 18 described in the text. This may have been an error on the author's part as no. 17 ends one section followed by an entirely new chapter. The vast majority of species described are native to the environs of Cape Town in South Africa, Table Mountain being specifically identified at least once. A few species are identified for each of the following regions: Egypt, the Barbary Coast, Madeira, North America and Maritime Coast, Italy, the Alps and France. George Louis Marie Dumont de Courset (September 16, 1746 & 1824) was a French botanist and agronomist. Born near Boulogne, he studied in Paris and showed an aptitude for music and drawing. He joined the military when he was 17 and became a second lieutenant. Sent to the south of France, he visited the Pyrenees and caught a passion for botany. He gave up his military career and returned home to build an extensive garden that became famous for the diversity of plant species. He tried to influence the agricultural techniques employed in his area. Protected by scientists like André Thouin (1746&1824) during the Revolution, he became corresponding member of the French Academy of Agriculture. He published five volumes on the Botaniste cultivateur, ou description, culture et usage de la plus grande partie des plantes étrangères, naturalisées et method es, naturalisées et methodes, cultivées en Franc et en Angleterre, ranges suivant la method de Jussieu in 1802. Later he entirely re-examined the work and re-issued it in six volumes (1811). In these volumes, Dumont de Courset described 8,700 species and indicated their characteristics and their cultivation.

Der griechische Gesandte Megasthenes bezeichnete damals Palibothra als die größte Stadt der Alten Welt. Am Ganges gelegen, soll sie von einem breiten Wall, Palisaden und einem 177 m breiten Graben umgeben gewesen sein.

        Mirror for Magistrates (three volumes); WITH: The Palace of Pleasure (three volumes)

      London: Printed for Lackington, Allen, and Co. Finsbury Square; and Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, Paternoster Row; Reprinted for Robert Triphook, St. James's Street, by Harding and Wright, St. John's Square, 1815, 1813. Six quarto volumes, contemporary full brown crushed morocco gilt, gilt-ruled blindtooled boards, raised bands decorated in gilt, spine compartments decorated in blind, maroon endpapers, all edges gilt. Letterpress titles in Mirror for Magistrates printed in red and black, decorative engraved titles throughout all three volumes, small woodcut vignettes in Volume III; two engraved half-titles in Palace of Pleasure. Crease to front free endpaper of first volume of Mirror for Magistrates, lightest occasional foxing. Deluxe large-paper reissues of two classic sixteenth-century source texts, the inspiration for some of the most important Elizabethan and Jacobean plays. Featuring chapters by a number of English poets, Mirror for Magistrates was at first suppressed by the Lord Chancellor in 1555, then published under Elizabeth in 1559, and expanded by new contributors over the decades to come. The anthology offers pointed verse portraits of historic rulers, good and bad, with an eye to instructing those in power; Philip Sidney, in his Defence of Poesy, recommends "Mirrour of Magistrates meetly furnished of beautiful parts." The chapter on "Queene Cordila" served as a key source for Shakespeare's King Lear: "I must assay your friendly faithes to prove: / My daughters, tell mee how you doe mee love." The Palace of Pleasure, first published in 1566 by William Painter, and expanded in subsequent editions, translates dozens of sensational tales from Continental sources, including the first English translations of Boccaccio's Decameron and Marguerite de Navarre's Heptameron. The anthology provided English playwrights with a rich supply of plots, inspiring The Rape of Lucrece, Titus Andronicus, Romeo and Juliet, All's Well That Ends Well, Timon of Athens, The Duchess of Malfi, Love's Cruelty, Insatiate Countess, and The Revenger's Tragedy. As the Cambridge History of English Literature observes: ?"it would be difficult to find a plot that has not had its origin, or its counterpart, in Painter?'s treasure-house.?" Sixteenth-century editions of Mirror for Magistrates and The Palace of Pleasure are exceptionally scarce. Editor Joseph Haslewood, a founder of the Roxburghe Club, strove to bring neglected Renaissance texts to the attention of nineteenth-century readers and collectors; these lavishly produced sets, issued in editions of 150 copies, were part of his mission. These volumes were splendidly bound by Charles Lewis, "the leading figure in English binding of the first years of the nineteenth century" (Maggs 1075). A fine collection of Shakespearian source material.

        TRAVELS TO THE SOURCE OF THE MISSOURI RIVER AND ACROSS THE AMERICAN CONTINENT TO THE PACIFIC OCEAN. PERFORMED BY ORDER OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES, IN THE YEARS 1804, 1805, AND 1806

      London, 1815. Half title in second volume (as called for). Modern half citron morocco and marbled boards, gilt morocco label. Folding map with a few closed tears, neatly repaired on verso, with no loss; small, half-inch repaired tear in right margin, just intruding into the map, with minor loss. Internally very clean and neat, except for a stain from an old book marker on pp.120-121 in the first volume. A very good set, untrimmed. The second British edition, after the Philadelphia and London editions of 1814. The narrative of the Lewis and Clark expedition is the most famous in the trans- Mississippi West, describing their twenty-eight-month trek from St. Louis to the Pacific and back again, with a wealth of geographical, ethnological, and natural historical observations en route. Because of the death of Lewis, the publication of the account was delayed until 1814, when the Philadelphia edition appeared. The 1814 British edition quickly sold out, necessitating this three-volume 1815 edition to satisfy public demand. It has a large folding map on fine paper on a somewhat larger scale than in the original American edition.

Varying addresses of imprint: "No. 133, New Bond Street" to all titles and caption titles of Acts 1 and 2; plates of caption titles of Act 3 corrected to "140, New Bond Street." Double pagination, with continuous pagination to head of pages and separate pagination to upper inner or outer corners. All numbers with caption titles designed for individual sale and with price to the right of caption title. Some soiling and foxing; title of Acts 1 and 2 browned; impression of caption titles and pagination weak in places; other minor defects. A good copy overall. . First English edition, later issue. Rare. Not in Köchel. Not in RISM. WorldCat (four copies: Washington University has same page count but is tentatively dated "1810s;" Biblioteca de Catalunya, Barcelona, has same page count but is dated "1811;" Harvard University (dated "1810s") and the British Library (dated "1811) copies have 227 pages only. The present edition does not include recitatives except Elettra's "Marcia con Recitativo" in Act 2 and the recitatives preceding the oracle in Act 3. The duet "Spiegarti non poss'io" for Act 3 (K489), composed for the 1786 revival, is included alongside the piece it replaced ("S'io non moro a questi accenti"). Robert Birchall died in 1819. After his death, the business continued at 133 New Bond Street until ca. 1824, thereafter at 140 New Bond Street (Humphries & Smith p. 74). It would seem plausible that in the present copy, Act 3 (with the later imprint) is a later, expanded issue. The copies with 227 pages would then represent the earlier issue. "Having completed nine operatic works, Mozart, aged twenty-four, was commissioned to write an opera by the Elector Karl Theodor of Bavaria, formerly of Mannheim, who had moved to Munich in January 1778. He began work in Salzburg in October 1780 and moved to Munich in November to complete the work with the singers, several of whom he knew from Mannheim days. The opera was successful but there were no further performances in other houses and the amateur performance in Vienna took place five years later." Robbins Landon: The Mozart Companion, p. 248. "Idomeneo sprang from a specific tradition and far outstripped it. The happy auspices under which it was created brought forth from Mozart a work so demanding that it could hardly be performed elsewhere. Even the Mannheim-Munich forces were probably not ready for its boldness. "Magnificent," "expressive," "novel," "powerful," "and "strange," its first auditors called it, with the dominating impression certainly the last. For all but a few the profundities of this opera eroica were too deep. In the decade Mozart had left to live, it had already became a work dispossessed. This is perhaps one of the reasons why he loved it especially among all his works." Heartz: Mozart's Operas, p. 34.

Light to moderate foxing and toning in text. Overall very good. In a half morocco box. This curious and rare work predates the appearance of Kilbourn's first OHIO GAZETTEER by one year. It contains descriptions of western territories such as Mississippi, Michigan, Indiana, Northwest Territory, and Missouri, and therefore stands as one of the earliest western geographies. Included is a chapter about each of the other states and territories as well, with boundaries, rivers, and topography described, as well as population statistics, Indian inhabitants and slaves included.

        An Account of the Kingdom of Caubul and its Dependencies in Persia, Tartary, and India

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, & J. Murray,, 1815. Quarto (285 × 208 mm). Contemporary calf, neatly rebacked with the original spine laid down, flat spine, title gilt direct. Hand-coloured aquatint frontispiece and 12 other similar plates, one uncoloured aquatint, large folding engraved map (opening 637 × 789 mm), coloured in outline, and one similar full-page map. A little rubbed, with some judicious restoration and refurbishment at the extremities and on the joints, light browning throughout, the occasional spot of foxing, some off-setting from the plates, the large map with professional repairs at the folds and to an old tear, formerly stub-mounted, but now laid in for ease of opening, overall a very good copy. First edition. Superbly detailed regional study, much enhanced by the series of costume plates - "of excellent quality" (Abbey) - which are closer to individuated portraits than the "types" usually encountered in such works. Elphinstone stands out as one of the most remarkable figures in establishment of British hegemony in India in the early nineteenth century. The son of the eleventh Baron Elphinstone, he went out to India in 1795 at the age of sixteen as a "writer" in the service of the East India Company. In 1801 was appointed Assistant to Sir Barry Close, Resident at the court of Baji Rao the Peshwa at Poona. The Peshwa was virtual head of the Mahratta confederacy and is described by DNB as "an avowed poltroon", he was overthrown by Holkar at the Battle of Poona. Holkar refused British requests to reinstate the Peshwa which led to the Second Mahratta War. Elphinstone was attached to Wellington's staff in the Deccan and saw action at the Battles of Assaye and Argaum and the Siege of Gawilarh. The General remarked of him then that he had "mistaken his profession and ought to have been a soldier." Advanced to the important post of Resident at the court in Nagpur in 1804, in 1808 he was favoured further with the position of Ambassador to the Afghan court at Kabul where he was to assess the extent of French penetration, who had already established an embassy in the Persian capital, and to persuade Shah Shuja into a defensive alliance. "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. Shah Shuja was only prepared to make an alliance in return for substantial British aid which the envoy was unable to offer. Meanwhile, a revolt in Kashmir had made the shah's tenure of power increasingly precarious. Elphinstone did, however, return to India with a mass of new information about the Punjab and the north-west … Elphinstone's subsequent Account of the Kingdom of Caubul continued to inform British policy on the north-western frontier until the 1840s" (ODNB). He remained in India for the next 20 years, "first as resident at Poona, then as lieutenant-governor of Bombay. As a civil administrator he served with distinction, and is often regarded as the founder of the system of state education in India. He twice refused the offer of the governor-generalship of India" (Howgego). Contemporary armorial bookplate of Abraham Caldecott, former Accountant General to the Bengal Presidency, to the front pastedown, together with the slightly later plate of William Woodville Rockhill, American adventurer and diplomat.

Tonlithographie auf Papier. -- Technik: -- Tonlithographie auf Papier. unten links Unterhalb der Darstellung signiert: "Gez. u. lith. v. Meyerheim. ", unten betitelt: "Preussens Königspaar. Eigenthum u. Verlag v. Liebmann unten Comp. ". -- Maße: -- Platte: 35,8 x 22,4 cm. Papier: 50,2 x 32,7 cm -- Zustand: -- Ecke oben rechts restauriert, kleine Bereibung oben rechts im Bereich der schwarzen Umrandung. -- Beschreibung: -- Die hier gezeigte Lithographie Wilhelm Meyerheims, Bruder des Eduard Meyerheim und Spross dieser für Berlin so wichtigen Malerfamilie, zeigt das preußische Königspaar beim Wandeln im Gartengelände von Schloss Charlottenhof. Im Hintergrund erkennt man die klassizistische Portalanlage und die Säulenskulptur in dem davorliegenden Teich. Für das Königspaar hatte die Anlage eine besondere Bedeutung: Friedrich Wilhelms Vater schenkte sie dem Kronprinzen 1825, kurz nach dessen Heirat mit Elisabeth Ludovika von Bayern. Die Lithographie dürfte um die Zeit von Friedrich Wilhelms Thronbesteigung 1840 entstanden sein, denn die Unterschrift des Bildes führt beide bereits als "Königspaar". In mindestens einer weiteren Darstellung präsentieren sich beide erneut vor Schloss Charlottenhof, diesmal aber weniger "lebensnah". 1 Das vorliegende Blatt präsentiert den König als schützenden Führer ohne Zurschaustellung von Machtinsignien. Der Offizier im Hintergrund trägt weitere Kleidungsstücke des Königspaares und spielt somit auf die Ungezwungenheit und Natürlichkeit der Situation an, um so Volksnähe zu vermitteln und Sympathie zu generieren. Unter diesen Aspekten wirft die seltene Lithographie ein interessantes Licht auf den Aspekt der Selbstdarstellung in dieser frühen Phase von Friedrich Wilhelms Regentschaft. -- [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Kleiner Landschaftsausschnitt mit grasbewachsenem Felsen und Bäumen.

      - Bleistift auf gelblichem Bütten mit angeschnittenem Wasserzeichen: Traube im Wappenschild. 23,5 x 40 cm. Vertikale Knickfalte im rechten Bildteil geglättet, kleine Fehlstelle an der linken oberen Ecke, vereinzelt minimal fleckig, im unteren Rand leicht bestoßen, kleine Annotationen in der rechten unteren Ecke in Bleistift, sonst in frischer Erhaltung.- Die im zügigen Duktus gezeichnete Landschaftsskizze fertigte Rohden vermutlich während seines dritten römischen Aufenthaltes in Rom um 1815 an. Nach dem Besuch der Kasseler Akademie brach Rohden schon als 17jähriger nach Italien auf. Seit 1795 lebte er vorwiegend in Rom. In Deutschland hielt er sich 1801/02 und 1811/12 auf und 1827/29, als er zum Hofmaler in Kassel ernannt worden war. Obwohl ihn diese Berufung und das damit verbundene Gehalt, wie J.M. Wagner (1777-1858) Anfang 1827 an König Ludwig I. schrieb, aus langjähriger Mutlosigkeit aufrichtete, ließ er sich bereits 1829 beurlauben, um nach Rom zurückzukehren. Die Unterstützung, ein großzügiges Jahresgehalt, die ihm auch nach der Entlassung aus dem Hofdienst zuteil wurde, sicherte seine Existenz, für die seine sehr sorgfältige, aber seit den 40er Jahren nicht sehr umfangreiche Produktion allein nicht ausgereicht hätte.

        A MAP OF THE STATE OF OHIO FROM ACTUAL SURVEY

      Philadelphia, 1815. 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 it 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" - CREATING AMERICA. 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 period from 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 this firm to the Yale Map Collection in 1982.

        La fata galanti [unpublished manuscript translation into English]

      [?Messina], 1815. [110] pp. pen and ink on paper, fair copy manuscript in a neat hand. Folio. Modern half calf and marbled boards. Some light spotting to text, final text leaf worn and stained with some loss at margins. [110] pp. pen and ink on paper, fair copy manuscript in a neat hand. Folio. Unpublished Manuscript Translation of Giovanni Meli. An unpublished manuscript English translation of Sicilian poet Giovanni Meli's La fata galanti (The courteous fairy, 1762). Meli (1740-1815) was a physician and poet who wrote in his native dialect of Palermo and promoted and collected Sicilian literature. The Courteous Fairy, a satirical poem in 8 cantos, is one of his earliest works - it remains unpublished in English. The translation is ascribed to W.W. Baker, British consul in Messina. It opens with an Advertisement To the Reader, followed by a translated biographical sketch of Meli by the Abbé Contreras. Barker, who was married to a Sicilian women, made a number of manuscript copies of this and other Meli poems, perhaps with the intention of circulating them among his literary friends.

      Stralsund, Carl Löffler, 1815. - 8vo. 144 pp. Contemp. marbled boards. All edges sprinkled in red. Only issue of this edition of the text, with commentary, Latin translation and a loose German version of an Arabic poem by Ibn Saiyid an-Nas, a Persian one by Nizami, and a Turkish one by Emri. Following his dissertation, this was the first great scholarly publication by Johann Gottfried Ludwig Kosegarten (1792-1860), who later assisted Goethe with his "Diwan". In 1817 he was made professor of oriental languages at Jena. - Some browning due to paper; inscribed to a "Dr. Vermehren" (dated 1816) on front pastedown. Although the print shop used by the publisher was equipped with Arabic, Persian and Greek types, no types were available for the passages in Sanskrit and Armenian: these few words, on p. 48-49, had to be supplied in manuscript (possibly by the author himself?).

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

      Cincinnati, 1815. 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.

        THE LIFE OF GEN. FRANCIS MARION, A CELEBRATED PARTIZAN OFFICER, IN THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR, AGAINST THE BRITISH AND TORIES, IN SOUTH CAROLINA AND GEORGIA

      Baltimore, 1815. 12mo. Contemporary calf, neatly rebacked, retaining original gilt spine and leather label. Ownership inscription of Lawrence Washington on front flyleaf and in text. Small wormhole through center of text block. Light to moderate foxing and tanning. About good. "Third edition improved." "General Horry furnished the facts, Parson Weems the rhetoric; so much of it that Horry became indignant and disclaimed all connection with the book. Unabashed, Weems continued its publication through many editions" - Howes. Marion was a hero of the Revolution, and it was largely due to his actions and strategy that the turning point came in the South. Horry was his most trusted officer; his biography of Marion helped to establish the general as the legendary "Swamp Fox." Sabin does not note this edition. With the ownership inscription of Lawrence Washington, nephew of the first President.

Provenienz: Doublette der Hamburger Kunsthalle, Lugt 1233. – Etwas unfrisch. Literatur: Winkler 548.33 (dieses Exemplar). Elisabeth hatte, wie ihre fünf Schwestern, eine sehr fundierte Ausbildung im Zeichnen, Malen und Kupferstechen erhalten. In England waren ihre Lehrer u.a. J.A. Greese (um 1740 – 1794), Dr. J. Fisher, der spätere Bischof von Salisbury, P.W. Tomkins (1760-1840), B. Rebecca (um 1735 – 1808), S.W. Reynolds (1773-1835), M. Wyatt (1799-1859), H. Angelo (1760-1839) und R. Cooper (um 1740 – um 1814) sowie insbesondere die Miniaturistin Anne Mee (um 1760 – 1851) und die berühmte Blumenmalerin Mary Moser (1744-1819). Vor allem vor ihrer Heirat betätigte sich die Prinzessin als Zeichnerin und Malerin, porträtierte, kopierte und kolorierte Stiche, schnitt Silhouetten, schuf Lack- und Wandmalereien und katalogisierte die königliche Gemäldegalerie. Nach ihrer Verheiratung und dem Umzug in die Residenz Homburg nahm sie Mal- und Zeichenunterricht bei dem Hofmaler J.F. Voigt (1792-1871) und setzte ihre vielfältige künstlerische Arbeit fort.
