        HISTORICAL MEMOIR OF THE WAR IN WEST FLORIDA AND LOUISIANA IN 1814 - 1815. WITH AN ATLAS

      Philadelphia, 1816. Half title. Frontispiece portrait. Late 19th-century three-quarter morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Text lightly tanned, an occasional light fox mark. Maps neatly repaired. Else very good. One of the most important books on the War of 1812 in the South and West, describing the campaign around the battle of New Orleans. "Major Latour's account of the military events is minute and interesting, and the appendix contains an invaluable collection of state papers" - Sabin. "Chief authority, well-documented, on these operations" - Howes. The eight maps (Sabin states that there are only seven) consist of battle plans and "A General Map of the Seat of War in Louisiana and West Florida" executed by Major Latour in his capacity as Jackson's engineer. Streeter describes the maps and plans (which are sometimes found bound in a separate atlas) as "invaluable," and Clark calls the HISTORICAL MEMOIR... "a detailed and precise narrative of the 1814- 15 campaign from the first arrival of British forces on the Louisiana coast until their complete evacuation." Theodore Roosevelt, in his NAVAL WAR OF 1812, remarks that "Latour (who was General Jackson's chief engineer) is the only trustworthy contemporary American historian of this war" (quoted in Streeter). Latour's text was translated from the French by H.P. Nugent. The portrait of Jackson, not found in all copies, is present here, and is a rare early likeness.

        CHRESTOMATHIA: PART II. CONTAINING APPENDIX, NO. V. BEING AN ESSAY ON NOMENCLATURE AND CLASSIFICATION

      London: M'Creery, 1816. Gathered signatures, stitched. Old tape expertly removed from titlepage, including over the presentation inscription, but leaving only a slight discoloration; reinforced with Japan tissue on verso. Light tanning and foxing. Very good. Untrimmed. In a red cloth chemise and slipcase. A presentation copy, inscribed by Jeremy Bentham to James Madison on the titlepage. Bentham (1748-1832) was a British utilitarian philosopher, social reformer, and writer on jurisprudence. During James Madison's presidency he corresponded with Madison on a proposal to create a written, codified, statute law for the United States. Madison, busy with the War of 1812 and other matters of state, took several years to respond to Bentham, but the correspondence forged a relationship between the two men. That relationship also involved John Quincy Adams, who went to London to negotiate the Treaty of Ghent and stayed on as the American minister to England, and who conveyed Bentham's proposal to Madison's and Madison's ultimate response. The DICTIONARY OF NATIONAL BIOGRAPHY records that when Adams left London to return to the United States to take up his duties as Secretary of State he met with Bentham, who gave him copies of several of his works, including CHRESTOMATHIA, to distribute to leaders in America. It seems likely that this copy of the book, presented to James Madison by Jeremy Bentham, was delivered to Madison by John Quincy Adams. This is the first printing of the second part only of Bentham's important treatise on educational reform, proposing a new type of school for middle class children that excluded religion in favor of "useful" subjects such as science, economics, mathematics, and law. Separately issued, with its own titlepage, it is usually found with a publication date of 1817, not the 1816 date found on this copy (perhaps indicating copies that Bentham received early for private distribution). James Madison had an extensive library, reputed to be almost as large as that of his friend and ally Jefferson. However, he seldom marked his ownership in books as Jefferson did, and his library seems to have been scattered after his death by his debt-ridden spouse. It is far harder today to identify books which belonged to him, and they are far rarer in the market than volumes which belonged to Jefferson's third library, which was dispersed after his death (the second library, of course, went to the Library of Congress). A wonderful association of two major political thinkers, and a rare book from Madison's library.

First edition, with the half title and advertisements, notably untrimmed in a signed later 19th-century binding. This publication prints for the first time three of Coleridge's very best poems, the gothic Christabel (which was written 1797-1800 but excluded from the 1800 edition of Lyrical Ballads on Wordsworth's advice and left unpublished until here), the lysergic Kubla Khan (accompanied by Coleridge's notorious recount of its composition one night after an opium influenced dream having read a work describing Xanadu, the summer palace of the Mongol ruler and Emperor of China), and The Pains of Sleep (considered a description of opium withdrawal symptoms). The publisher's advertisements evince a good year for literature, with Murray publishing Byron's Siege of Corinth, Walter Scott's Field of Waterloo, Jane Austen's Emma, Leigh Hunt's Rimini, as well as John Malcolm's classic History of Persia.

        A bread-fruit of the Paea species with its leaf and blossom, drawn from a specimen brought to England by the Revd. Jno. Williams, missionary from the Sea Sea Islands

      London:: Published by John Snow,. Ca. late 1830s.. Good + overall. Very rare separately published image of the bread fruit, probably one of the few fruits in history to figure in a mutiny. William Bligh's mishandling of his crew, who were sent to Tahiti to secure the breadfruit to feed slaves in the West Indies in the 1790s, lead to the infamous Mutiny of the Bounty. John Williams traveled for the London Missionary Society in 1816 and brought back a bread fruit when he returned to England in 1834. This image derives from the William's period. Large colored lithograph, with the leaf and fruit occupying most of the image. Many rubbed spots with number of small tears, and one 9" closed tear into sheet. Backed on tissue paper to strengthen cracks. Some lighter discoloration on the right edge. Printed area 39.5 X 50.5 cms. Trove Libraries Australia ID 9131025, at the National Library of Australia.

      Berlin, 21. VII. 1816. - 1 S. 8vo. An seinen Verleger Georg Reimer in Berlin mit einer Entschuldigung dafür, daß er ihn mit der Ablieferung seiner Erzählung "Das Sanktus" so lange warten läßt: "[.] Freund Hitzig kann es bezeugen, wie seit drey Monathen ein ungewöhnlicher Andrang von zeitraubender und Geist anstrengender Arbeit es mir als unmöglich gemacht hat, an etwas anderes zu denken. Von Woche zu Woche hoffte ich die längst im Innern ganz fertige Erzählung: Das Sanktus, vollenden und sie Wolgebohrn persönlich bringen zu können, mit leeren Händen mocht ich nun durchaus nicht kommen [.]". - Hoffmanns Erzählung "Das Sanctus" sollte 1816/1817 im ersten Band der"Nachtstücke" veröffentlicht werden. - Liecht gebräunt und mit kleinen Randläsuren; einige Wörter etwas verwischt.

        Thomas Jefferson explains why he refuses to publish his private correspondence with Benjamin Rush, "...preventing the publication of his letters, or their getting into hands which might expose him, living, or his character when dead to obloquies from bigots in religion, in politics, or in medicine..."

      Monticello, [Charlottesville, VA], August 17, 1816. 9.75" x 8". "Autograph Letter Signed, ""Th: Jefferson"", 1p, 9.75"" x 8"", with conjoined franked address leaf in Jefferson's hand. Addressed to James Mease, Monticello, [Charlottesville, Va.], August 17, 1816. Expected toning. Fine condition.Thomas Jefferson, long since retired to private life, declines the request of Dr. James Mease for copies of Dr. Benjamin Rush?s correspondence with Jefferson. Mease hoped to include them in a volume of Rush?s letters to be published and specifically requested letters pertaining to Rush?s personal views on religion and politics. After demurring, Jefferson discusses at length the differences between personal and official correspondence, with philosophical thoughts on public versus private expression. He closes with assurances that his decision is nothing personal, and of his great respect for Mease: ?I hope, my dear Sir, you will see in my scruples only a sentiment of fidelity to a deceased friend.?In full, ""I have duly received your favor of the 7th inst. requesting me to communicate to you such letters from the late Dr. Rush to myself as I possess on political, religious, and miscellaneous subjects, with a view to their publication. I possess but few such; but these were of extraordinary confidence; insomuch that, on his death, I requested from his family a return of my letters to him on subjects of this character, which they kindly and honorably did return. had I died first, I think it probable he would have made the same request from my family, & with the same view, that of preventing the publication of his letters, or their getting into hands which might expose him, living, or his character when dead, to obloquies from bigots in religion, in politics, or in medicine When we are pouring our inmost thoughts into the bosom of a friend, we lose sight of the world, we see ourselves only in confabulation with another self; we are off our guard; write hastily; hazard thoughts of the first impression; yield to momentary excitement; because, if we err, no harm is done; it is to a friend we have committed ourselves, who knows us, who will not betray us; but will keep to himself what, but for this confidence, we should reconsider, weigh, correct, perhaps reject, on the more mature reflections and dictates of our reason. to fasten a man down to all his unreflected expressions, and to publish him to the world in that as his serious & settled form, is a surprise on his judgment and character. I do not mean an inference that there is anything of this character in Doctor Rush?s letters to me: but only that, having been written without intention or preparation for publication, I do not think it within the office of a friend to give them a publicity which he probably did not contemplate. / I know that this is often the form in which an author chuses to have his ideas made public. When the occasion, the subject, the chastened style evidently indicate this, it may be a good evidence of intention, as direct expression, but in the present case, the occasions were special, the persons and subjects most confidential, and the style the ordinary careless one of private correspondence. Under these circumstances, I hope, my dear Sir, you will see in my scruples only a sentiment of fidelity to a deceased friend, and that you will accept assurances of my great esteem and respect / Th: Jefferson"" James Mease (1771-1846) studied medicine under Benjamin Rush and was a prominent Philadelphia doctor and scientific thinker, graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Medical School. He helped develop a scientific vineyard, was a member and curator of the American Philosophical Society, was a founder and the first vice president of the Philadelphia Athenaeum, an early lecturer on pharmacy science, and an important early leader in the call for treating veterinary medicine as a science that should be studied similar to human medicine. He served as surgeon during the War of 1812. He devoted considerable time to correspondence among other scientifically-minded individuals around the United States and the world on subjects of horticulture, geology, penal and criminal reform, technology, and medicine. He wrote a book, The Picture of Philadelphia, Giving an Account of its Origin, Increase, and Improvements in Arts, Sciences, Manufactures, Commerce and Revenue (1811), that charted the city and its inhabitants? rise to prominence in American life. He also wrote Observations on the Arguments of Professor Rush in Favor of the Inflammatory Nature of the Disease Produced by the Bite of a Mad Dog, 1801. Mease attended Dr. Rush on his deathbed in 1813. Jefferson's references to religion in his available letters are particularly scarce. Only a handful have ever come to market, most notably the ""synagogue"" letter which sold nearly 30 years ago for around $400,000. This letter is made even more pertinent in light of recent developments and privacy incursions by Internet giants Google and Facebook, and the National Security Agency. "

        The Arabian antiquities of Spain.

      London, Cadell & Davies [letterpress printed by William Bulmer?], 1 June 1815 [= 1812-1816]. - Double elephant folio (675 x 500 mm). (4), 21, (1) pp. plus engraved title and plates. With engraved title-page, engraved headpiece to the introduction (dated 28 April 1812), engraved section title ("Description of the palace of the Alhambra") and 97 numbered plates, plus an additional plate 8 with the same number but with a different engraving (included in the table of the plates) and 4 other additional plates not in the table of the plates (79, 80, 86a & 86b). Contemporary red half goatskin morocco, curl-marbled sides and endpapers, gilt edges. First edition of an impressive work on the art and architecture of Moorish Spain, published in instalments from 1813 to 1816. It contains a total of 102 striking plates, including the four additional plates usually found only in Bohn's reissue published c. 1830. The plates are preceded by a short introduction, a table of the plates, and descriptions of each of the plates. The first 9 (8 numbered) plates show the Mosque at Córdoba, followed by a view of the bridge of Córdoba, while the rest of the work is devoted to the extraordinary complex of the Alhambra. It contains scenic as well as architectural views, several plans and details of the ornaments, inscriptions and other decorations. - The introduction states this work was published so as to "enable the reader to form an accurate estimate of the very high state of excellence to which the Spanish Arabs attained in the Fine Arts, while the rest of Europe was overwhelmed with ignorance and barbarism". It was completed posthumously from the drawings of the Irish architect James Cavanah Murphy (1760-1814), who visited the Alhambra and the Mosque at Córdoba in 1802. Some of the plates were based on engravings from the 1780 "Antigüedades árabes de España", although Murphy has clearly seen and redrawn their subjects. Although the book names only the publisher, not the printer, the type used for the letterpress preliminaries appears to be William Bulmer's, cut by William Martin. Bulmer is famous for his fine printing under the influence of the early work of Didot and Bodoni. The book is printed on enormous sheets of Whatman wove paper, the size Whatman introduced in 1772 under the name "Double Elephant" (67 x 102 cm). Although the book has no quire signatures, so that it might be supposed to be a 1mo, the "J Whatman" watermark appears faintly along the short edge of half the leaves, that is once in each sheet, along one half of the long edge. - Some foxing throughout, but all plates are printed with very clear impressions. The spine is slightly faded. A good copy of a work with beautiful plates, removed from the library of the Château de Dampierre. BAL 2220. Palau 186.308. Lowndes III, 1635.

        Three-volume Manuscript Course Book

      Silloth, Cumbria: Green-Row Academy,, 1816-7. I. Navigation & Algebra; II. Arithmetic; III. Gauging and Land Surveying. 3 volumes quarto (253 × 197 mm) Contemporary mottled half calf, marbled boards, red morocco labels, compartments formed by single gilt foliate roll. Water-colour title page to volume I, folding map with compass rose "A Chart from England to the Cape Verde Islands", folding diagrammatic plate, folding table, numerous diagrams to the text, some with outline colour, over 1,100 pages of manuscript text. A little rubbed and bumped, spines somewhat craquelured, head- and tail-cap of volume II chipped, light browning to contents, else very good. Highly attractive, and well-executed examples of these manuscript course/exercise books, covering a technical syllabus typical of those designed for boys destined for nautical or clerical careers. They were produced by a pupil at Joseph Saul's exceptional Green Row Academy, near Silloth in Cumbria. Saul was the son of a Quaker minister from Beckfoot a few miles down the coast from Silloth, who began his career as a tutor in 1783, with two just pupils, a number which by 1811 had grown to 135. An advertisement in the Carlisle Journal form July 1812 runs as follows; "At Green-row young gentlemen are boarded and taught the English, Latin, Greek and French Languages. Writing, Stenography, Drawing, Arithmetic, Booking [bookkeeping], the Mathematics and Natural Philosophy. In Navigation, Geography, and Astronomy the Students are accommodated with Maps, Globes, Sextants, Telescopes, etc. and in the several branches of the Natural Philosophy they have the use of appropriate Apparatus. The French language is taught by a native of France, and drawing by a student of the Royal Academy … Terms 25 guineas per annum" (Grainger & Collingwood, Register & Records of Holm Cultram). The school was visited by John Christian Curwen, lord of the manor of Workington, twice MP for Carlisle, abolitionist and a notable liberal reformer, after praising the management he continued; "No noise! and yet the gaiety which was discoverable in every face proclaimed this not to be the reluctant submission effected by the fear of punishment but the fruit of an early sense of propriety. To my astonishment, I was in the next room to 135 boys at supper, without being incommoded … I do not know how higher eulogium can be made on any man that to state he was the author of what must procure so much happiness … A further gratification arises from contemplating what Mr. Saul has done. He was educated in this parish, and affords an instance of what the good sense and spirit of the inhabitants off this district are capable of effecting when properly called into exertion". Interesting piece with an appeal both to pedagogical and regional history.

        Wellingtons Sieg oder die Schlacht bey Vittoria. Für das Piano-Forte. 91tes Werk.

      Wien, Steiner, (1816).. 1 Kupfertitel., 29 S. (1 S. typographische "Pränumerations-Anzeige, S. 2 - 29 Notendruck). Quer-4°. Pp. des 20. Jahrhunderts mit Deckelschild.. (Steiner Platten Nummer C.D.S. 2361). - Erste Ausgabe des von Beethoven selbst bearbeiteten Klavierauszugs (enthält die mit Februar 1816 datierte "Pränumerations-Anzeige", die fehlende Angabe zum "Preis" und den Druckfehler "Marlbroug" auf S. 5) - Kinsky 255. - "Der Tüftler, Erfinder und Musikmechaniker Johann Nepomuk Mälzel, mit dem Beethoven zu dieser Zeit befreundet war - Mälzel baute auch Hörrohre für den Komponisten - hatte als erster die Idee, aus der Niederlage der Franzosen ein Musikstück zu machen. Er überzeugte Beethoven, für seinen Musikautomaten, das sogenannte Panharmonikon, eine Siegessinfonie zu komponieren. Wahrscheinlich schon während der Übertragung auf den Zylinder des Automaten stellte Mälzel fest, wie musikalisch ausufernd Beethovens Werk geworden war - und damit wie inkommensurabel für eine Maschine, die mit abspielbaren Zylindern arbeitete. Er schlug Beethoven daher vor, die Komposition für großes Orchester umzuarbeiten und der Sieges-Sinfonie auch noch ein musikalisches Schlachtengemälde und eine Intrada voranzustellen. Nach heutigen Maßstäben gehört 'Wellington's Sieg' sicherlich nicht zu Beethovens Meisterwerken und wird ob seiner Banalität belächelt. 1813/14 traf das Werk allerdings den Zeitgeschmack und wurde für Beethoven und Mälzel zu einem rauschenden Erfolg. Zusammen mit der 7. Symphonie wurde op. 91 am 8. und 12. Dezember 1813 in einem Benefizkonzert zugunsten invalider Soldaten uraufgeführt" (www.beethoven-haus-bonn.de). - Im Gegenzug zu vielen anderen Werken hat Ludwig van Beethoven die vorliegende Klavierfassung selbst bearbeitet. - Durchgehend etw. fleckig und gebräunt. Titel mit Resten eines hs. Namens. Restaurierte Randläsuren.

        A description of the correct method of waltzing, the truly fashionable species of dancing, that, from the graceful and pleasing beauty of its movements, has obtained an ascendancy over every other department of that public branch of education. Part I. Containing a correct explanatory description of the several movements and attitudes in German and French waltzing. ...... Illustrated by engravings, from original designs and drawings, by J.H.A. Randall

      London, printed for the author, 2, Greville Street, Hatton Garden: published by Sherwood, Neely, and Jones. 1816. 8vo., with a fine folding coloured frontispiece showing couples waltzing, 6 other uncoloured engraved plates, (1) + lxi + (1) + 63 - 113 + (4) leaves, without the final advertisement for New Works> referred to by Abbey, printed throughout on rectos only, original pink boards with green glazed paper spine, printed title label, some wear to head and foot of spine, entirely uncut. A fine copy. First edition: scarce. C.W. Beaumont, Bibliography of dancing> (1929) pp.194-195. Abbey, Life>, 420. Magriel, Bibl. of Dancing>, (1936) p.107. A milestone in the history of English dance. Thomas Wilson (fl. 1800-1839), dancing-master and writer, was active in London during the early 19th century. His career probably began at the King's Theatre Opera House; from the early 1800s he taught at his own dancing academy, variously based at Bedford Row, Ludgate Hill, and Hatton Garden, where he was assisted by his wife and sufficient staff to form sets for any of the social dances then popular. When in 1816 Wilson published A description of the correct method of waltzing>, it 'probably followed the appearance of the shocking new dance at the Prince Regent's ball on 13 July 1816*, and its introduction to Almack's assembly rooms by one of its patronesses, Princess Lieven, a leading London society hostess. ...... Wilson's work at the theatre - where he would have helped to train many of the opera dancers—together with his teaching and writing activities, had a direct impact on the style and performance of social dancing. He was very much a traditionalist, preferring the allemande or German style of waltz, in which the dancers had intertwining arms, to the close hold which so scandalized sections of society, and which became beloved of the aristocracy. Wilson's manuals explain the figures in text and illustration, and several are accompanied by music suitable for each dance, and all fully describe the correct style and manner of performance, together with the correct ballroom etiquette expected of both ladies and gentlemen. This was an issue on which Wilson was at great pains to instruct his readers, as he feared standards of dancing would be ?'perverted into a chaos of riot and confusion?' if left to decline any further. ......... Some modern writers have commented that Wilson's figure descriptions can be difficult to follow, and that the more complicated, balletic steps that Wilson included were in fact the province of only a few extremely accomplished dancers. Despite Wilson's traditional and conservative stance, later generations are indebted to him for a comprehensive description of the most popular social dances of this period.' [Gail Ford in ODNB]. The plates in this book are worth noting. The extended coloured frontispiece of a ballroom with nine couples dancing the waltz, with a seven-piece orchestra in a box at the side of the room, the women in a variety of most elegant and colourful Empire-style dresses, the men in white cravats and tails. The other engravings include one showing 'the five positions (of the feet) in dancing', another a 'sketch shewing the movements performed within the circle formed in waltzing', while the remaining four plates are of music adapted to various named waltzes. * It is worth noting that the coloured plate here was published by Sherwood & Co. of London on July 14th 1816.
