        A NARRATIVE OF FIVE YOUTH FROM THE SANDWICH ISLANDS, NOW RECEIVING AN EDUCATION IN THIS COUNTRY. PUBLISHED BY ORDER OF THE AGENTS APPOINTED TO ESTABLISH A SCHOOL FOR HEATHEN YOUTH

      New York, 1816. Modern half calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, leather label. Minor foxing and toning. Very good plus. A very rare pamphlet which was directly responsible for accelerating the establishment of a mission school in Hawaii, an important step in drawing the Hawaiian Islands into the orbit of the United States. In 1809 a New Haven- based sea captain brought two Hawaiian youths, [Henry] Obookiah and [Thomas] Hopoo, to New Haven to educate them. These two were soon followed by three others, including Prince Tamoree, the son of the Hawaiian king. The presence of the young men and their educational development greatly impressed people throughout the United States. The text gives biographies of the youths and discusses their activities and experiences in America, as well as printing letters written by them. The final pages discuss the establishment of the Foreign Mission School in Hawaii, including a proposed constitution of the school and a discussion of the general importance of Christian education. "This publication, which aroused all New England to the plight of the natives 'suffering in ignorance of Christianity,' was directly responsible for public support of the Foreign Mission School and ultimately the beginning of the movement that sent missionaries to Hawaii in 1819" - Forbes. A rare and desirable piece of Hawaiiana.

        A VOYAGE ROUND THE WORLD, FROM 1806 TO 1812; IN WHICH JAPAN, KAMSCHATKA, THE ALEUTIAN ISLANDS, AND THE SANDWICH ISLANDS, WERE VISITED INCLUDING A NARRATIVE OF THE AUTHOR'S SHIPWRECK ON THE ISLAND OF SANNACK, AND HIS SUBSEQUENT WRECK IN THE SHIP'S LONG BOAT WITH AN ACCOUNT OF THE PRESENT STATE OF THE SANDWICH ISLANDS, AND A VOCABULARY OF THEIR LANGUAGE

      Edinburgh, 1816. Folding frontispiece map. Modern three-quarter calf and marbled boards. Very minor scattered foxing, but generally quite clean internally. Very good. The scarce first edition of this valuable account of Campbell's voyage to Japan and China, with much useful information on Hawaii and Alaska. While in China, Campbell joined the crew of the American ship Eclipse, sailing out of Boston and captained by Joseph O'Cain (called "O'Kean" in the text here). He departed China and went on to Japan and Kamchatka, and thence to Alaska, where the Eclipse was shipwrecked in 1807. Campbell gives an important and early description of Alaska. He wintered at the Russian base at Kodiak in 1808, where he met Baranov, who happened to be there at the time, and gives a valuable description of life on Kodiak. After his shipwreck on Kodiak, both of Campbell's feet froze, and they were eventually amputated. After the amputation Campbell was sent to Hawaii to rehabilitate and became friendly with King Kamehameha I, for whom he made sails. "Campbell's account of his stay in Hawaii...is of the greatest importance, being the first narrative from the viewpoint of a resident rather than as a visitor....The author lived among the chiefs and then with Isaac Davis, and he identifies some of the earliest foreign residents of the islands, a number of whom were Botany Bay men. His keen firsthand observations on the social structure and agricultural practices of Hawaiians are of great importance" - Forbes. A twenty-five-page appendix contains a Hawaiian vocabulary, and an additional three pages contain Hawaiian phrases useful to seamen. The map is a rather detailed chart of the Northwest Coast, showing the "Track of the Eclipse's Long Boat from Sannack to Kodiak 1807." After his time in Hawaii, Campbell spent two years in various businesses in Rio de Janeiro, also discussed in this narrative. This account of his adventures, edited by James Smith, was published in an attempt to benefit Campbell.

        NOUVEAU RECUEIL DES PLANS DES PORTS, ET RADES DE LA MER MEDITERRAN?E, DONT LA MAJEURE PARTIE PUBLI?S NOUVELLEMENT PAR LES MEILLEURS AUTEURS. GENES, CHEZ YVES GRAVIER IMPRIMEUR LIBRAIRE, 1816,

      in - 8 oblungo (mm.190x230), ff. (1) di frontespizio figurato inciso,179 tavole incise, (1) di tavola che illustra bandiere navali e mercantili, 1 pianta ripiegata della città di Odessa; 1 foglio sciolto su carta azzurra con un indice dei porti contenuti nella raccolta. Leg. coeva in piena pelle. La presente edizione, uniformemente legata, potrebbe essere una miscellanea di diverse edizioni del celebre portolano tascabile del Roux, a partire dal 1804 fino al 1849. Le prime 163 tavole numerate sono infatti certamente ad opera di Joseph Roux, di cui si sa che apparteneva a una famiglia di idrografi e conduceva una tipografia specializzata in Marsiglia. Nel 1764 Roux aveva pubblicato un album intitolato "Recueil des principaux plans des ports et rades de la Mer Méditerranée...", comprensivo di 121 tavole di rade e piani di porti. L?opera incontrò largo favore, e fu ristampata nel 1799 da Yves Gravier, che diede alle stampe anche le edizioni successive. L?album ebbe riedizioni sino al 1848. La presente edizione include carte, (dalla 164 alla 179) scritte in inglese, di Ayrouard (firmate quelle di Portofino, Savona e S. Fiorenzo; attribuibili di Portovenere, Porto Ercole, Porto Longone); di Rizzi Zannoni (firmate quelle di Salerno, Policastro, S. Eufemia; attribuibile quella di Messina); e una carta del Mar di Marmara di J. N. Bellin. Importante suite di piante incise di portolani del Mediterraneo.

        British Jungermanniae: Being a History and Description, with colored Figures, of each Species of the Genus, and Microscopical Analyses of the Parts

      Published by Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown.; and J. Harding, London 1816 - Folio (470 x 294 mm). Contemporary Russian leather with gilt denteles and border on boards; new spine with raised bands; tooling in panels gilt as is title, author and date; extremities abraded. Edges of covers and corners rubbed and some loss. Decorative tooling in gilt present on inside of boards. Original marble end papers. Collation: [i-xxvii], [1]- 20pp., + plates 1-84, supplement plates 1-4 [2-Index] pp. There two or more pages of text for each plate with Supplement with preceding text pages grouped together. h. Some spotting to preliminary blanks & half-title. There is also some minor light gray spotting on one plate. Plate number I in supplement has small brown off setting from spot on facing page. This is a very scarce large paper copy in fine decorative binding with excellent provenance. This study was issued in parts between 1812 and 1816 (publication date on title page). Plates were from drawings by Hooker and engraved by W. H. E. Edwards. Provenance: This is one of 10 large paper copies inscribed to Dawson Turner. Turner was Hooker's father-in-law. Dawson Turner has signed his name on the title page followed by a quote in Latin. Turner is noted for his extensive studies on the red algae, Fuci, of Britain. Hooker married Turner's eldest daughter Maria Sarah in 1815, at a time when Hooker was still working on the present study. In fact, it took Hooker 10 years to prepare this study of cryptogamic plants. Hooker's son Joseph describes this as his father's most beautiful work in point of drawing, analyses and engraving of the plates.(Turrill, J.D. Hooker). This classification and illustration of various species of the Jungermmaniae reflects the keen interest of British scientists to bring order to the biological world, particularly plants, in the British Isles. Hooker provides a detailed historical introduction to the family noting that "the name of Jungermannia was first adopted; a name given by Ruppius [1616], to perpetuate the memory of Louis Jungermann, a German botanist, who was born in 1572, and died in 1653, after having published a catalogue of plants of the neighborhood of Altorf, and a work entitled Cornucopia Florae Giessensis. He likewise gave considerable assistance to Besler, in his Hortus Eystettensis." Following the section on History, Hooker describes the different parts and reproduction of a Jungermannia in great detail. The Introduction ends with a binomial classification key for the family, Jungermanniae and a synopsis, both in Latin. (BMNH, II p.870; Brunet, III p.300; Cowan & Stafleu, 2987; D. Jackson, p. 241; Lindley, p. 209; Nissen BBI, 916; Pritzel, 4208). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        A Voyage Round the World, from 1806 to 1812; in Which Japan, Kamschatka, the Aleutian Islands and the Sandwich Islands Were Visited... With an Account of the Present State of the Sandwich Islands, and a Vocabulary of Their Language.

      Edinburgh: Archibald Constable, 1816. 288 pp. b/w folding map First edition. Campbell was a Scotsman who sailed to China on an East India Company ship, then joined an American vessel which took him to Japan, Kamchatka and Alaska. His ship was wrecked off the coast there and he wintered in a Russian settlement at Kodiak. In the course of these tribulations both his feet froze and were amputated. After his stay in Kodiak he sailed to Hawaii. There, he was befriended by King Kamehameha I, and became the Royal sailmaker. Campbell gives detailed accounts of all his ports and adventures, including his later career as an innkeeper and a butcher in Rio Janeiro. Various bibliographies testify to the importance of his narrative. ?"Of great value is his description of the Hawaiian Islands.?" -- Hill 245. ?"Campbell?'s description of Kodiak is particularly valuable.?" -- Lada Mocarski 71. ?"He identifies some of the earliest foreign residents of the islands, a number of whom were Botany Bay men. His keen firsthand observations on the social structure and agricultural practices of Hawaiians are of great importance?" -- Forbes, 461. See also Hunnewell p. 29. Judd 30.

        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 extraordinary run of the earliest laws of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. These volumes of session laws are all rare products of the early Kentucky presses. The first volume in the run contains an apparently unrecorded appendix to amend the penal laws, with much interesting material on prison practices, as well as sentencing guidelines. The primary acts for that session were, according to one of the resolutions, issued in 800 copies; they contain interesting divorce proceedings against various absent husbands, among much else. All these acts are rare in the marketplace and most are known in only a few institutional copies. Kentucky gained statehood in 1792, so these are among the earliest imprints in the state and, indeed, in the region. They are as follows: 1) Acts of a Local, or Private Nature, Passed at the Second Session of the Sixth General Assembly for the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Frankfort: John Bradford, [1798]. 87,16pp. Evans 3395; McMurtrie 86. 2) Acts Passed at the First Session of the Seventh General Assembly, for the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

        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]

A General Digest of the Acts of the Legislatures of the Late Territory of Orleans and of the State of Louisiana, And the Ordinances of the Governor Under the Territorial Government: Preceded by the Treaty of Cession, The Constitution of the United States, And of the State, With the Acts of Congress, Relating to the Government of the Country and the Land Claims Therein. 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. Moderate toning, somewhat heavier near margins, light browning in places, light foxing to text. Faint dampstaining in places, worming to middle leaves of the bottom edge of Volume II with minor loss to margin (text not affected), a bit of edgewear to folding leaf, internally clean. Ex-library. 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'.

First edition. The author's first play. "A popular and frequently revived Gothic drama, BERTRAM was first given at Drury Lane on May 9, 1816, with the renowned Edmund Kean as Bertram. Justly praised by Scott and Byron, Maturin's play consolidated Byronic hero and Gothic villain into a single character.
