        Extensive Run of Session Laws from Kentucky]

      Frankfort 1816 - First eleven volumes in early 20th-century three-quarter morocco and marbled boards, spines gilt; later eight bound to match in similar style. Library ink stamp on each titlepage, occasionally also an embossed stamp or second ink stamp, contemporary ownership inscription. Second volume trimmed closely, affecting some marginal notes; two leaves repaired with tape; marginal loss to one leaf; lightly dampstained. Volume five lacking several leaves, noted below. Seventh volume lightly dampstained. Tenth volume with light dampstaining to last few leaves. Volume fourteen with slight loss to center of titlepage, light dampstaining along inner margin. Volume nineteen, titlepage trimmed close at the top affecting the word "Acts"; lacking two leaves, noted below. Overall, a very good run of quite rare imprints.

        An die Hoffnung

      1816 - BEETHOVEN, Ludwig van. An die Hoffnung aus Tiedge’s Urania… 94tes Werk. Wien: S. A. Steiner, [1816]. Oblong folio, disbound; pp. 10, (2). $4700.First edition of Beethoven’s second setting of this poem by Tiedge, fully engraved.Beethoven twice set Tiege’s “An die Hoffnung” to music-once in 1805 (op. 32) in a much shorter version without the opening strophes, and again in 1813-14. “Obtaining the right rhythm for the words was always a matter of major concern for him; his preliminary sketches for songs often show him experimenting with many different rhythms for the first phase, while his latest alterations to the final version sometimes include minor improvements to the rhythm of the voice part. His concern for verbal accentuation sometimes led to unusual results, a remarkable example being the beginning of his second setting of An die Hoffnung (op. 94), where the music borders on declamatory recitative as well as being very chromatic and forward-looking harmonically” (Cooper, 263). “At certain periods of his life, Beethoven’s religious impulses were rather in the background, and there is more than a hint of agnosticism in his 1813-14 setting of An die Hoffnung (op. 94), which begins ‘Ob ein Gott sei?’ (‘Is there a God?’)-a passage omitted in his 1805 setting of the song” (Cooper, Beethoven Companion, 147). With integral blank at end. Kinsky-Hahn, 265-66. Faint foxing to title, text exceptionally clean. A wonderful copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Carl GRAEB (1816 Berlin 1884), Altar in Freiberg, Aquarell, signiert

      - Carl GRAEB (1816 Berlin 1884), Altar in Freiberg, Aquarell, signiert -- Technik: -- Aquarell über Bleistift auf Papier, unten mittig signiert und bezeichnet: "Carl Graeb Freiberg". -- Maße: -- 27,4 x 23 cm -- Zustand: -- Sehr guter Zustand. -- Beschreibung: -- Die Zahl der Architektur-Denkmäler, die Carl Graeb in seinem Werk verewigte, ist imposant. Der Student der BerlinerAkademie der Künste und Schüler von Carl Blechen bereiste im Laufe seines Lebens die Schweiz, Südfrankreich,Italien und immer wieder Deutschland, hier vor allem Berlin, Sachsen, Sachsen-Anhalt und Thüringen. 1851 wurde erzum Hofmaler von Friedrich Wilhelm IV und führte für den König umfangreiche Aufträge aus. Gleichzeitig leitete eran der Seite seines Schwiegervaters Johann Gerst ein Atelier für Dekorations- und Theatermalerei. Während seinerReisen fertigte Graeb zahlreiche zeichnerische Architektur-Notizen. Sie dienten ihm später als Vorlagen, aus denen erseine Gemälde zusammensetzte. Graeb besuchte Halberstadt zweimal . Um 1850 widmete er sich dem Chor des Doms, ein Jahrzehnt später wurde dieFrauenkirche zum Thema eines Gemäldes. Die vorliegende Zeichnung zeigt die berühmte Triumphkreuzgruppe desHalberstädter Doms, mit Maria, Johannes und zwei Cherubinen. 1874 entstand sein Gemälde mit dem Inneren desDoms zu Freiberg, das sich heute in der Sammlung des Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York befindet. DasGemälde wurde in Berlin fertiggestellt, die Skizzen dazu entstanden höchstwahrscheinlich kurz davor vor Ort. Einedavon zeigt einen Kirchenväteraltar und ein Kreuz - zwei Elemente ohne architektonischen Zusammenhang, dafür abersehr detailreich ausgeführt. Diese Studien waren seine Gedankenstützen, seine "Detailaufnahmen", sorgfältig wiedergegeben, mit Farbvorgabenversehen, und mit festgehaltenen Licht- und Schatteneffekten. Hier wird sein ausgeprägtes Verständnis fürarchitektonische Formen, dank dessen er in die Geschichte der deutschen Malerei im 19. Jahrhundert einging, deutlich. -- [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Published Under a Resolve of the Legislature. New Orleans: Printed by Peter K. Wagner, 1816. Three volumes. 742; 696; 290, 295-513, [3], 107 pp. Volume III lacking pp. 291-294, which are supplied in facsimile. English and French translation on facing pages.

Four pages of contemporary manuscript notes bound to rear of Volume II. Octavo (8" x 5"). Recent period-style calf, blind rules to boards, lettering pieces and gilt fillets to spine.

Faint stamps to title pages, hand-lettered inventory numbers to versos. A handsome set. $3,000. * First edition. One of the great landmarks in Louisiana's history, this was the first post-territorial digest of the Louisiana legislature. It contains the treaty ceding the Territory of Louisiana to the United States and, on pp. 601-691 of Volume I, the infamous Code Noir of 1685, which ordered the expulsion of the Jews from French colonies, banned non-Catholic practices there and provided a system for the regulation of slavery. Martin was an important figure in the legal history of the south. A French-born lawyer, judge, author, translator, printer and historian, he began his career in North Carolina. He later moved to the Louisiana territory, where he played the leading role in the reorganization of its legal system. Appointed attorney-general when Louisiana became a state, he is considered the father of Louisiana jurisprudence. The manuscript pages at the end of Volume II are an index. Jum.

        Ueber die Seeräuber im Mittelmeer und ihre Vertilgung. Ein Völkerwunsch an den erlauchten Kongreß in Wien. Mit den nöthigen historischen und statistischen Erläuterungen.Lubeck, M. Michelsen, 1815. 8vo. 19th-century boards covered with paste-paper.

      Allgemeine Zeitung (Stuttgart), no. 46 (19 April 1816), p. 185. First and only edition (the first of two issues) of a detailed report on the pirates in the Mediterranean Sea, giving some historical information, but primarily concerned with the infamous "Barbary" pirates then still active off the coasts of Algiers, Morocco and Tunis (the Barbary Coast), along with accounts of the Christian slaves that were still held in these regions. Herrmann presented this work to the Congress of Vienna to convince the representatives of the importance and urgency of bringing the piracy to an end. The Congress did set up an anti-piracy commission to discuss the problem of the Barbary pirates, but the issue remained unsettled and was addressed again at the 1818 Congress of Aix-la-Chapelle. There too, the necessary international cooperation proved difficult and the piracy continued until the French conquest of Algiers in 1830.With a library's ownership inscription on the front paste-down and a stamp on the back of the title-page. With the imprint damaged, or label and with minor foxing, but otherwise in good condition. With the paste-paper scuffed and torn, but the binding remains structurally sound. A plea for a solution to the piracy problem at the end of the Napoleonic Wars.

        A voyage to Abyssinia, and travels into the interior of that country, executed under the orders of the British government, in the years 1809 and 1810; in which are included, an account of the Portuguese settlements on the east coast of Africa.

      Philadelphia: M. Carey; Boston: Wells & Lilly (pr. by Lydia R. Bailey) 8vo (23.5 cm, 9.25"). 24, 454 pp.; fold. map., illus.. 1816 First U.S. edition and printed by Lydia Bailey, following the London first of 1814. Salt, a British traveller and Egyptologist, first visited Ethiopia in 1805, and returned in 1809 on a diplomatic mission intended to promote ties between the British government and the Emperor of Abyssinia. The Voyage gives Salt's observations of Ethiopian customs, manners, dress, cuisine, and music, along with the factual details of his diplomatic achievements — or lack thereof, in terms of concrete agreements — followed by an appendix comparing vocabulary words from various languages spoken along "the Coast of Africa, from Mosambique to the borders of Egypt, with a few others spoken in the Interior of that Continent" (p. 395). This is an untrimmed copy in original boards, with 24 pages of advertising for Carey publications bound in at the front of the volume. The preliminary map, engraved by John Bower, has hand-colored border lines; this American edition does not call for the plates found in the English first, but does include in-text depictions of several "Ethiopic inscriptions. Publisher's quarter tan paper over light blue paper–covered sides; front cover detached and back joint cracked, binding spotted, paper cracked and split along spine, spine label now absent and replaced with hand-inked title, spine with later paper shelving label. Front pastedown with institutional bookplate, front free endpaper with inked ownership inscription dated 1829. Half-title with portion of outer margin torn away (not touching text) and laid in. Map lightly foxed, with two short tears along folds. Pages age-toned, with occasional spots of foxing.

        A treatise on the art of flying, by mechanical means; with a full explanation of the natural principles by which birds are enabled to fly: likewise, instructions and plans for making a flying car with wings, in which a man may sit, and, by working a small lever, cause himself to ascend and soar through the air

      New-York: printed and sold by Samuel Wood & Sons, at the Juvenile Book-Store, no.357, Pearl-Street. 1816. 12mo., xviii + (19) - 68pp., including two whole-page illustrations, the paper generally rather discoloured (i.e. browned) and with a light old waterstain running throughout, original printed card covers with woodcut emblematic vignettes on both covers, an old dampstain affecting lower part of upper cover. In spite of the minor faults just described, this is in fact a complete and pretty good copy of this remarkable little book. Second American edition, following the first edition (Hull, England, 1810) and the 1st American edition (New York, 1814). Shaw & Shoemaker 39701. All these early editions have become rather rare: of this 1816 printing OCLC locates copies at only 5 libraries: Congress + Un. of Delaware + Purdue + NY Hist. Soc. + the American Univ. For historical commentary see Hodgson's History of Aeronautics in Great Britain>, pp.349-354. Thomas Walker (who describes himself as a portrait painter of Hull) seems to be otherwise virtually unknown, the present essay being thus his only real memorial. 'Walker's ideas on the practicability of flight as a means of aerial transportation were based (as stated on the title-page of his treatise) upon 'the natural principles by which birds are enabled to fly.' It is evident the flight of birds was a subject on which for many years he diligently read and observed - in his early life he dissected many birds and 'studied very minutely' the mechanism of their wings, tails and all the parts which they employ in flying. On the evidence of his reading which the author himself states would have enabled him to compile a large volume from all that had been said on the subject throughout the ages he avers 'that no one has ever understood the natural means of flying'' and he dismisses as 'childish whims' all attempts hitherto made with wings, whether of silk, leather, sheet iron, or other materials. Throughout the book he insists on the fact that granted the possession of the 'two greatest requisites ' for flying, viz, 'wings large enough' and 'sufficient power to work them' the weight of a bird - or of a man - is no obstacle to the art of flying. In respect of his own scheme for 'artificial flying' which, conceived on an analogous plan, was designed to overcome the difficulty of the insufficient strength of man's arms, and (as hitherto attempted) the unsupported weight of his body - he claimed, with that complete assurance which is rarely convincing, 'there cannot remain a doubt of success.' Walker admits that 'professional avocations and other circumstances' - which it is safe to assume includes lack of money - prevented him from making any such machine as he described on paper, and indeed the only experiment he himself records was confined to diminutive paper models. It should, however, be added that a contemporary -who as a resident of Barton-on-Humber doubtless wrote with some personal knowledge - stated that Walker made a machine, but 'was unable to raise himself from the platform on which the car was placed.' (See Hodgson's History>, pp.351-3). The two whole-page illustrations rather nicely show the inside of the flying machine with a seated pilot and a view of the flying machine from above, its component structures all identified. Walker is scornfully not 'surprised' at the failure of the attempts of earlier would-be fliers. 'When we take into consideration the different methods which are recorded to have been tried, we cannot be surprised that they have all failed, since, compared with what is contained in the following pages, they will obviously appear to be nothing more than mere whims and contrivances, all utterly destitute of the true nature and science of flying'.

        VOYAGE DE DECOUVERTES AUX TERRES AUSTRALES EXECUTE PAR ORDRE DE SA MAJESTE L'EMPEREUR ET ROI, SUR LES CORVETTES LE GEOGRAPHE, LE NATURALISTE, ET LA GOELETTE LA CASUARINA, PENDANT LES ANNEE 1800, 1802, 1803 ET 1804

      Paris, 1816. Uniformly bound in three-quarter antique calf and later 19th-century marbled boards, spines gilt, leather labels. Occasional minor foxing in both text volumes. Plates and maps in atlas volume all pristine. Overall a clean and near fine set, untrimmed. The very rare account of the Baudin-Freycinet expedition, one of the most important early explorations of Australia. The expedition was sent out by the French government in 1800 with orders to complete the cartographic survey of the Australian coast. Commanded by Nicolas Baudin, the expedition left France in 1800 and sailed via Mauritius to the Australian coast in the region of Cape Leeuwin, arriving in May 1801. Peron sailed as naturalist on the expedition and Freycinet as cartographer. The vessels, Geographe and Naturaliste, sailed north from Cape Leeuwin, surveying the coast and making observations on the natural history and inhabitants, until they crossed to Timor. After three months the two ships set out for Tasmania, continued making detailed surveys, and went on to Sydney. The group then undertook a complete survey of the southern coast and an examination of the northern coast before returning to Mauritius where, near the end of 1803, Baudin died. It was a celebrated voyage which brought back to France the most important collection of natural history specimens in the history of the French Museum, as well as a wealth of geographical and other information. The narrative of the expedition was begun by Peron, and completed by Freycinet after Peron's death. A tacit agreement between Peron and Freycinet, both of whom disliked Baudin, kept the commander's name mostly absent from the present official account of the expedition. Flinders completed his survey of the Australian coast before Baudin, but his imprisonment by the French in Mauritius for seven years resulted in the French exploration account being published first. Consequently, the Baudin-Freycinet narrative includes the first complete and fully detailed map of the Australian continent. It is justly one of the most famous depictions of Australia ever produced, with virtually the entire southern coast labeled "Terre Napolean," indicating possible French colonial ambitions. The HISTORIQUE ATLAS contains a group of beautiful color plates, mostly of natural history specimens, many of which depict what the French saw during their important visit to Tasmania. The navigational text and atlas, which was issued separately a few years later, is rarely found together with the narrative section. A most important Pacific voyage account.

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.

Hawes, Cambridge, spine in compartments with raised bands, gilt titles end fleurons, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed.

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.
