        Future President, General William Henry Harrison, Successfully Defends Himself Against Graft Charges

      Northbend, OH 1816 - Autograph Letter Signed as Congressman, to Peter Hagner. Northbend, [Ohio], September 18, 1816. 3 pp, 7 1/2 x 12 1/2 in., On two conjoined sheets. During a Congressional inquiry that he requested to clear his name, Harrison answers criticism regarding an incident during his command of the Northwestern Army during the War of 1812. Here, the future president provides lengthy details to the Department of War about "supplying the troops at Detroit under orders given by General Cass & Colo Butler" in order "to supply the neglect of the contractor in furnishing the troops then." Partial Transcript"When I received your letter containing a Statement of Certain Claims made by Mr. Orr against the Government I appointed a day to meet Capt. Oliver in Cincinnati for the purpose of examining the statements together that we might write in affording you all the light on the Subject which it was in our power to afford. But when I expected to meet him, I found that he had taken a trip to some part of Virginia. Two absences from home since that period and the illness of my wife has prevented me from attending heretofore to your request. I enclose you the statement with the several items numbered & here follow my remarks on each.No.1 I made in the course of the last Winter a long statement containing all the circumstances which authorised this purchase to be laid before a Committee of Congress. This statement together with my letter to the Speaker of the House of Representatives was referred by that House to the Secretary of War amongst the documents which accompanied it were the original letters from Gen Gano to me describing his situation & that of the Garrisons of Sandusky & Put in Bay & the neglect of the Contractor to broker the necessary supplies. A referrence to these documents will furnish all the information which I can give. Capt. Olliver says that the documents which accompanied his accounts will also shew the Correctness of his proceedings.No 2 & 3 I do not know from the manner in which these two charges is made to what purchases they refer. I suppose however that they refer to the purchase of Beef Cattle made by Mr. Piatt in the fall of 1813 & to the Purchases made by him in the Winter following winter for the supplying the troops at Detroit under orders given by General Cass & Colo Butler in the first instance & afterwards repeated by me. The statement to which I have referred above in the possession of the Secretary of War will shew that in June 1813 I offered to deliver to Mr. Orr the whole of the public provisions, he refused to take them upon the only terms which I thought proper to offer them.In the Month of September following when the Army was about to embark on the lake in prosecution of the objects of the campaign I believe he would have taken them - but at that period I thought it proper to retain them & to continue to issue them by means of the Commissariat which had been previously organized for the following reasons. - After the Contractor had refused to take them in June I did not think that the Government were obliged to deliver them When they had been bought at great expense, difficulty & risque to the very margin of the lake From a calculation which was made by Col. Bartlett the Quarter Master General it appeared that the United States would gain a considerable sum by pursuing this course - as the state in which the provisions then were would enable the commissioner to issue them with little or no loss . The other considerable purchase of provisions made by the Commissary was done by the direction of Gen Cass & Col. Butler (who successively commanded at Detroit) to supply the neglect of the contractor in furnishing the troops then.7. The march of the Army up the Thames was certainly rapid but I cannot conceive why it should be called Desultory. - the rear of the Army was safe & the Contractors proper I should suppose might have taken care of the Hides - Altho not wi.

        Types et caractères Russes.Paris, Capelle (back of half-title: Corbeil), 1847. 2 volumes. 8vo. Contemporary dark green half sheepskin.

      Cat. Russica G867; Widener Library, Slavic history and literatures, p. 320. First edition of a critical political work on Russia by Ivan Golovine (1816-1890), a Russian exile living in England, France, Germany and eventually the United States. It includes several short stories, "the subjects which are principally political, and borrowed from passing events" (English edition), often written in dialogue form. With these stories, perhaps partly fictional, the author tries to point out the shortcomings and maladministration of the Russian government and especially of Tsar Nicolas I and his predecessor, Alexander I. Golovine described Russia as the most "wretched of countries", its population basically being slaves, which didn't make him popular among his fellow Russian exiles. The work was dedicated to Lord Dudley Stuart, who received Golovine during his stay in London.Some minor foxing, otherwise in very good condition. Binding rubbed along the extremities, slightly worn along the spines, but otherwise good.

        A Summary of the Life of Arthur Duke of Wellington, from the Period of his First Achievements in India, to his Invasion of France, and the Decisive Battle of Waterloo, June 18, 1815.

      Dublin: printed for George Mullens [sic], 1816 - Octavo (235 x 185 mm). Contemporary green straight-grain morocco by George Mullen, title gilt direct to the spine, low flat bands, gilt, large device composed of floral tools gilt to the compartments, both boards with broad gilt border with twined oak leaves and shamrocks, large shamrock corner tools, enclosing strapwork panels in blind, turn-ins gilt, green morocco hinges, drab paper doublures and free endpapers, all edges gilt, dark blue silk page-marker still intact. Lightly rubbed, spine gently sunned, very good indeed, light browning, a scatter of pale foxing, but a very good copy indeed. Hand-coloured engraved folding battle plan of the Battle of Waterloo by Gonne & Brocas, Dublin, text in French, based on that issued by Jouvenel in Brussels, 1815. First and only edition of this uncommon Southey title - only 6 locations on Copac, and a just a single copy recorded at auction - here offered a large paper copy in a handsome, and highly appropriate Regency morocco presentation binding. This was a piece which stirred some controversy. Originally published in the Quarterly Review - the Tory periodical on which "Southey lived from 1809 onwards, writing for every number" and sometimes receiving as much as £100 for an article (William Wallace, Critical Introduction to Robert Southey, in Craik, English Prose) - the essay was subject to "censorship" directed by none other than Wellington himself in his efforts to dictate the authorised version of his great victory. Southey had accepted the Duke's assertion that "the battle was won before the weight of Prussian numbers became significant", however, he did "dare to suggest that the Duke had been caught somewhat off-guard on 15 June and that the Prussians had contributed materially to the day" (Foster, Wellington and Waterloo: The Duke, The Battle and Posterity 1815-2015). Through his "agent" John Wilson Croker, Wellington brought pressure to bear on the Quarterly's editor William Gifford, to bring the narrative in line, and Gifford "welcomed the changes and resisted Southey's efforts to reverse Croker's edits" (Cutmore, Contributors to the Quarterly Review: A History, 1809-25, p.70). This elegant production, which was never published in London, was perhaps produced as a rejoinder to Wellington's lordly interference. It is interesting to note that the title of the map refers to the battle as La Belle Alliance, a nomenclature much resisted by Wellington for its implication of Prussian partnership in victory, with one of Croker's interpolations to Southey's text specifically addressing this. The superb binding is by George Mullen, perhaps the leading Dublin binder of his time, the tooling precisely matching that of the University of Missouri's red morocco copy, and perhaps just slightly surpassed by the BL's copy, where the shamrock corner-pieces of the border are replaced by a combined rose, shamrock and thistle "posy", and the blind panelling reduced in size for the inclusion of large gilt corner-pieces with scrolled foliate and floral tools on a pointillé background. The present copy has the ownership inscription of "D: Normanton" - perhaps Diana, Countess of Normanton, daughter of George Augustus Herbert, 11th earl of Pembroke, and daughter-in-law of Charles Agar, Archbishop of Dublin - on blank preceding the map, bookplate removed from front pastedown.

        An account of the origin, principles, proceedings, and results of an institution for teaching adults to read, established in the contiguous parts of Bucks & Berks, in 1814. Dedicated to His Royal Highness the Prince Regent, patron of the institution.

      Windsor, printed for Knight and Son; and sold by Hatchard, and Gale and Fenner, London. 1816. 4to., xvi (numbered xvii in error) + 140pp., including the half-title, with a small library withdrawal stamp on front free endpaper, original boards, entirely uncut, sometime rebacked with paper, inscribed in ink on upper cover, The Right Honble Lord Grenville*, from the general committee.> A large, crisp. copy in fine state of preservation. First edition. A detailed and very full account of this provincial school for adults, motivated, of course, by the Christian objective that the uneducated working classes should be encouraged to read the Scriptures. Charles Goddard (1769/70 - 1848), a philanthropic and dedicated Church of England clergyman, was at the time serving as curate of the parish of Hitcham in Buckinghamshire. As general secretary of this adult institution, he uses this Account> to put on record the thinking behind the project. In summary, it was proving fruitless to teach Christian principles and the Christian faith to children when there was no support at home. 'Ordinarily speaking', Goddard writes, 'the illiterate and ignorant parent, himself without the desire or the means of instruction, is wholly indifferent to that of his children; and does not content himself with the bare neglect of his religious duties, but allows himself to scoff at them. The habitual and irreverent use of the name of the Deity; oaths of every kind indiscriminately applied to truth and falsehood, upon slight occasions as on the most important ones; the violation of the Sabbath-day; not the coveting merely, but the actual purloining systematically of his neighbours' property, in all those instances where it may be done with impunity; these are the scenes which the children of the poorer classes are in far the greater number of instances exposed to witness, by means of the most impressive part of their education - that which is given them under the roof of their parents.' [pp.107-8]. The first Adult Sunday School had been founded in Nottingham in 1798. By 1816 there were 31 such schools with an estimated 1581 adults in attendance. * William Wyndam Grenville, Baron Grenville (1759-1834), statesman, Prime Minister 1806-07 and leader of the Whig party 1807-17.

        [PREVENTING A WAR WITH JAPAN] Zapiski Flota Kapitana Rikorda o Plavanii Ego k Yaponskim Beregam v 1812 i 1813 Godakh i o Snosheniyakh s Yapontsami [i.e. Notes of Fleet Captain Rikord About his Voyage to Japan's Shores in 1812 and 1813, and His Relations with the Japanese]

      St. Petersburg: Naval Typ, 1816. [viii], 137, [iii] pp. 25,5x18 cm. With an aquatint portrait frontispiece of Takadaya-Kahei and four folding copper engraved maps and plans after P. Rikord. Period style mottled full leather with gilt tooled ornaments on the boards; all edges coloured. Pre-revolutionary owner's ink stamp on the title page. Paper slightly age toned, some leaves with minor staining. Otherwise a very good copy. First edition. Rare Russian imprint as only nine copies were found in Worldcat. Primary source of the early history of Russian-Japanese relations closely connected with the first Russian circumnavigation (1803-1806) under command of Adam von Krusenstern and the Russian-American Company under Nikolay Rezanov (1764-1807). «In 1807 Golovnin was commissioned by the Russian government to survey the coasts of Kamchatka, the Russian American colonies and the Kuril Islands» (Howgego 1800-1850, G15). The book describes the rescue operation organised by Captain Peter Rikord (1776-1855) on the Imperial Russian sloop «Diana» as a result of the famous diplomatic Golovnin incident (1811-1813), which brought Russia and Japan to the brink of war. Count Nikolai Rezanov took part in Krusenstern's circumnavigation with the goal to deliver the first Russian embassy to Japan and to establish diplomatic relations between the countries. The embassy was unsuccessful, and in 1805 the Emperor of Japan prohibited Russian ships and subjects from approaching Japanese shores. Following the instructions of an irritated and insulted Rezanov, in 1806-1807 two ships of the Russian-American Company - 'Yunona' and 'Avos' under the command of young navy officers Nikolas Khvostov and Gavriil Davydov sailed to the Japanese possessions on the Southern Sakhalin, the Kuril Islands and Hokkaido, robbed and burned the shore settlements, and captured several Japanese people. Although both Khvostov and Davydov were arrested as soon as they arrived in Okhotsk and were sent to Saint Petersburg to be trialed, the attitude of the Japanese to Russians deteriorated; Russia was considering preparing for a war with Japan. In 1808-1811 the Russian sloop 'Diana' under the command of Vasily Golovnin and Peter Ricord (second-in-command) was sent on a second official Russian circumnavigation to explore and describe the Russian Far East, Kamchatka and Alaska. Upon his return from Russian America in 1811 Golovnin sailed to chart the Kuril Islands. During a short stop at Kunashir Island, Golovnin, his two officers and four sailors were taken prisoners by the Japanese, transported to the Hokkaido Island and were kept in prison near the town of Matsumae for over two years. The peaceful solution of the conflict became possible only as a result of the friendly relationship between Peter Rikord, who organized and led three expeditions to rescue his commander Golovnin, and a prominent Japanese businessman and public figure Takadaya Kahei (1769-1827), who was captured by Rikord with his ship Kanze-maru, and stayed in Russia for several months. Takadaya Kahei learned Russian, and upon returning home he convinced the Japanese government that the Russians could be trusted. The Russian sailors were then released from Japanese captivity (no one in history had ever returned from the Japanese captivity before). This work describes the story of Golovnin's capture and rescue in a very captivating manner. The plates and maps depict the views of the harbours and ports of Edermo (modern Erimo) and Hakodate, plans of the special facilities built for the negotiations, and a portrait of Takadaya Kahei. Rikord's book is considered by Russian bibliographers as a supplement to the book by Golovnin, titled Captivity in Japan During the Years 1811, 1812, 1813 which was published earlier the same year (SPb., 1816).

        Travels in Brazil.

      London, for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme & Brown, 1816.. FIRST EDITION. Large 4° (30 x 22 cm.), original boards (neatly refurbished at head and foot of spine, printed paper label slightly chipped and worn but intact). Uncut. Some offsetting from plates. Otherwise in fine condition. Old ownership signature of James Maury on recto of front free endleaf. Circular printed ticket of (Wright) & Cruickshank, 60 Castle Street, Liverpool in upper outer corner of front pastedown endleaf. 2 maps, 8 hand-colored aquatints, ix, (3), 501, (1) pp., (3 ll. advertisement). *** FIRST EDITION of this classic work. Born in Portugal, the son of a Liverpool sugar dealer, Henry Koster originally visited Brazil for health reasons. He arrived in Recife in mid-December of 1809. As his health improved, he began traveling in Parahiba and Maranhão. He settled in Pernambuco at the "Jaguaribe", a sugar plantation, and later acquired land in Itamaraca and a sitio in Gamboa. During his residence in Brazil he sailed several times to England, where in 1816 he published this celebrated book. Koster died in Recife in 1820. Although Koster had no intention of writing a book about Brazil, he was urged to do so by friends, the most notable of whom was perhaps Robert Southey, whom he met and befriended in Portugal in 1801, and whose library he utilized. Travels in Brazil was very well received by the public and critics; a second edition was issued the following year, and soon thereafter it was translated into French and German. Today it remains the best description in English of northern Brazil just before Independence, and the original edition is of considerably greater rarity than most English travel literature of the period. The plates that illustrate the work were executed according to Koster's own drawings by a close relative. The maps show the city of Pernambuco and the northeast coast of Brazil. In the Appendix (pp. 475-501), Koster transcribes 2 monographs, rare today, that Arruda Camara published in Rio de Janeiro, 1810; both deal with the plants of Brazil. Koster was keenly observant. In his description of the town of Pernambuco, for example (pp. 5-9), he notes the height and building material of houses in various sections of the town, the condition of the streets, public buildings, bridges, and the source of water. Similar but less detailed information is given about Olinda, Natal and São Luis do Maranhão. On pp. 298-301 he describes the building of his own house, commenting on the types of wood used for different parts. In addition to references to sugar and sugar plantations throughout the text, Chapter XVI (pp. 336-64) is devoted entirely to sugar, and two of the aquatints are related to the subject: One shows a sugar mill, another a planter and his wife on a journey. *** Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 437: "This first edition is the one most sought after."

        Types et caractères Russes.Paris, Capelle (back of half-title: Corbeil), 1847. 2 volumes. 8vo. Contemporary dark green half sheepskin.

      Cat. Russica G867; Widener Library, Slavic history and literatures, p. 320. First edition of a critical political work on Russia by Ivan Golovine (1816-1890), a Russian exile living in England, France, Germany and eventually the United States. It includes several short stories, "the subjects which are principally political, and borrowed from passing events" (English edition), often written in dialogue form. With these stories, perhaps partly fictional, the author tries to point out the shortcomings and maladministration of the Russian government and especially of Tsar Nicolas I and his predecessor, Alexander I. Golovine described Russia as the most "wretched of countries", its population basically being slaves, which didn't make him popular among his fellow Russian exiles. The work was dedicated to Lord Dudley Stuart, who received Golovine during his stay in London.Some minor foxing, otherwise in very good condition. Binding rubbed along the extremities, slightly worn along the spines, but otherwise good.

        Angelo's Infantry Sword Exercise; Established by the Prince Regent's Command

      By Authority, W. Clowes, 1816. The Figures by I. [J.] A. Atkinson, Engraved by I. Robinson, with hand-colour. Large broadside, 31" x 21". The Figures by I. [J.] A. Atkinson, Engraved by I. Robinson, with hand-colour. Large broadside, 31" x 21" Highly attractive instructional single-sheet. Along the top are a series of figures showing the "Preparatory Movements" or postures, beneath is a large circular "target" with the directions of the seven cuts and guards together with the words of command for the Infantry Sword Exercise. The figures are by John Augustus Atkinson who was noted for his "spirited and lifelike" figure-drawing; "His figures, artistically arrested in movement, show rather an actor's sensibility than a draughtsman's skill. " [DNB] Here he shows a range of contemporary infantry uniforms including the Rifle Brigade and a Highlander. Angelo's Fencing Academy was established in 1759 by Domenico Angelo Malevolti Tremamondo who had first established himself in London as a riding master. Angelo, as he became known, set up a highly fashionable "école d'escrime" in Soho which enjoyed the patronage of the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Devonshire. Such was his perceived authority in the area of the art of the fence that the plates of his L'École d'Armes were reproduced in the Encyclopédie illustrative of the section on "Escrime." Angelo's eldest son Henry, who had put the final polish on his fencing skills studying in Paris under Motet, became virtual head of his father's académie around 1785 and continued its reputation as "not only a school-of-arms, [but as] a school of deportment as well" [Aylward, The House of Angelo, p. 38.] In turn Henry's son, also named Henry, inherited the business when his father "retired from ther active conduct of the school" in 1817 [DNB]. The present item is dedicated "To Field Marshal His Royal Highness, The Duke of York. by Henry Angelo Junr." who we must presume to be the latter Henry despite the dating to 1816. At this stage in the history of the House of Angelo it was probably unnecessary for him to seek patronage with a well-placed dedication, and in 1833 he was appointed Superintendent of Sword Exercise in the Army. However, it does appears that this was based entirely on personal merit, his method being such that "even the soldiers themselves are anxious to learn it" [Aylward, p. 190]. A wonderful survival of the Angelo dynasty, a school-of-arms that became, "in the end, nothing less than a British Institution" [ibid. p. 183].

        Narrative of a Ten Years' Residence at Tripoli in Africa

      1816. First Edition . (AFRICA) TULLY, Richard. Narrative of a Ten Years’ Residence at Tripoli in Africa… Also, An Account of the Domestic Manners of the Moors, Arabs, and Turks. London: Henry Colburn, 1816. Quarto, contemporary three-quarter red morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled boards, endpapers and edges. $2500.First edition of this revealing “insider” account of the Court of the Bashaw of Tripoli, with engraved folding map of the “Regencies of Tripoli and Tunis,” and five vibrant hand-colored aquatints of Moorish costume and customs.“This work is one of the most important records of Tripolitan life during the 18th century” (Maggs II 2003). Richard Tully was the British Consul at Tripoli from 1783 to 1793. “The closest intimacy subsisted” between Tully’s family and the reigning Bashaw, whose “authentic memoirs and anecdotes” are related here in Tully’s sister’s letters. These letters provide “the only exact account of the private manners and conduct of this African Despot, and detail such scenes and events, such sketches of human weakness and vice, the effects of ambition, avarice, envy, and intrigue, as will scarcely appear credible… In the parts of Africa to which [the letters] refer, the natives neither admit nor even know of innovations, their manners remaining from age to age invariably the same… The volume will be found an object of particular curiosity, from the lively and artless manner in which it lays open the interior of the Court of the Bashaw of Tripoli.” Miss Tully’s Tripoli was the source Lord Byron used for his description of furniture in Canto III of Don Juan (see Letters V, 346). Tooley 493. See Abbey, Travel 301 (1817 edition). Plate impressions crisp and colors bright, light occasional foxing to margins of text, foxing and faint dampstain to map. A very desirable copy in near-fine condition.

      KVK & WorldCat (5 copies); Quérard III, p. 245; not in Gumuchian; for the arms on the binding: Olivier, Manuel armoriées Françaises 2553, fer no. 2 (recorded on a different 1816 book). Very rare first and only edition of a compendious educational work intended for girls, dedicated (in the newly restored Bourbon monarchy) to Marie Thérèse de France (1778-1851), Duchesse d'Angoulême and daughter of King Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette, the only heir directly descended from Louis XVI to survive the Revolution. The dedication itself appears in volume 1 (1817), but is noted on all three title-pages (so also 1816). The present copy is in a beautiful armorial morocco binding clearly intended as a dedication copy for Marie Thérèse, with her arms on both boards of each volume. She had married her first cousin Louis Antoine d'Artois (1775-1844), Duc d'Angoulême in 1799 (he was to be King of France for 20 minutes in 1830 when his father and he abdicated, then pretender to the throne, calling himself Louis XIX). She was nearly forty and childless when the book appeared, soon after the 1814/15 restoration of the Bourbon monarchy with her uncle as King Louis XVIII. Rather than impale the husband's and father's arms as the English did, French ladies displayed them side by side: courtoisie. The book contains lessons in all subjects girls of good family should be taught. The first volume covers French grammar and syntax, with separate courses for younger and older girls, followed by a basic course in rhetoric. The second volume covers arithmetic and geography in single, extensive courses. The third and last volume covers history and mythology, again with separate courses for the younger and older girls, both presented like a catechism. with questions and answers for the children to learn by heart. In fine condition with only a small tear in the folding table and occasional very minor foxing. Fine copy in a fine armorial dedication binding for the daughter of King Louis XVI in the restored Bourbon monarchy.

      Zus. 18 S., 12 bis 4. Konstanze (bzw. Constantine, Constantia) Gräfin Thürheim, Schwester von Lulu von Thürheim, heiratete 1816 den russischen Fürsten Andrej Kyrillowitsch (Andreas) Rasumofsky (1752-1836), dessen Vater der letzte Hetman der Ukraine war. Der Diplomat, Musikmäzen und Kunstsammler war von 1792 bis 1807 als Gesandter am Wiener Hof, wo er bei der Teilung Polens und in den Koalitionskriegen eine bedeutende diplomatische Rolle spielte. Er ließ sich nun dauerhaft in Wien nieder und war 1814 russischer Delegierter beim Wiener Kongress. Am 31. Dezember 1814 brannte das von ihm erbaute prachtvolle Palais im 3. Wiener Gemeindebezirk zum Teil nieder, wobei bedeutende Kunstschätze verlorengingen. Besondere Bedeutung gewann er für das Wiener Musikleben als Gönner von Beethoven, der ihm drei Streichquartette (Opus 59, Nr. 1, Nr. 2 und Nr. 3) und die 5. und 6. Symphonie widmete. 1808 bis 1816 unterhielt er das erste professionelle Streichquartett, das erstmals in Wien öffentliche Konzerte veranstaltete auch war er mit Joseph Haydn und Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart befreundet. Die Memoiren ihrer Schwester Lulu Gräfin Thürheim (Mein Leben. Erinnerungen aus Österreichs großer Welt 1788-1852, 4 Bde., 1913-14) sind ein bedeutendes kultur- und geistesgeschichtliches Dokument aus der Zeit der alten Donaumonarchie. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr.

        Fu il fuoco, o l'acqua che sotterro Pompei ed Ercolano? Scoperta geologico-istorica, fatta dall'autore il di 14 e 26 Ottobre 1810, e da lui scritta nelle lingue latina, inglese, francese, italiana, tedesca, e spagnuola in due lettere. Seguite dalle scritture pro et contra, presentate all' Accademia di scienze di Napoli, per di lei ordine; e dalle decisioni di questa Società, relative al' argomento. Prima edizione Italiana.

      - Napoli, Domenico Sangiacomo, 1816. 8vo (18.9 x 11.4 cm). [iv], 384 pp., one folded plate. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards. Rich gilt spine. Edges yellow.l A very rare work by the Italian geologist Carminantonio [(or Carmine Antonio) Lippi (1760-1823). The author discusses the controversial opinions of his days about the true cause of the demise of Pompei and Herculanum, either water or fire. This is not as strange as it seems, since it reflects, essentially, the difference between lahars and pyroclastic flows, and the fate of both towns was in fact different. Small paper chip on rear board, boards a bit rubbed. Scattered foxing, mostly light, somewhat more so on the preliminary text pages, otherwise a very good complete copy with the folded plate. Neither in the Cat. BM(NH), nor in Ward & Carozzi. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
