        Recueils et opuscules du théologal de l'église d'Orléans,rassemblés pour le Monseigneur le baron de Talleyrand préfet du département du Loiret et offert à l'Évêque d'Orleans

      1818 - In-8° relié plein veau de l'époque, dos richement orné, pièce de titre de chagrin vert. Un petit trou de vers au dos qui n'atteint pas le volume, coiffes frottées mais intactes. Dubois, théologal de l'église d'Orléans. Dubois a rassemblé une trentaine de ses écrits, spécialement à l'attention du Baron de Talleyrand. On trouve au verso de la deuxième page, une dédicace autographe de Dubois à l'Évêque d'Orléans. On trouve ensuite, calligraphié à la maison, un texte dédié à "Monsieur le Baron de Talleyrand, préfet du département du Loiret" qui occupe 36 pages manuscrites ; puis les textes de Dubois recueillis par lui-même ; puis enfin à la fin du volume 34 pages manuscrites de notes sur les textes recueillis dans le volume, nous n'avons pas pu identifier le scripteur. - - - Talleyrand est nommé grand chambellan de France le 28 septembre 1815. Pour la première fois depuis son retour des États-Unis, il n'est pas au pouvoir, se répandant contre son successeur, le duc de Richelieu (qui pourtant fait en sorte que les titres de Talleyrand, qui n'a pas de fils légitime, soient transmissibles à son frère), certain d'être rappelé au pouvoir. Au printemps 1816, il se retire à Valençay, où il n'avait pas été depuis huit ans, puis revient un temps à Paris à l'annonce de la dissolution de la Chambre introuvable. Le 18 novembre 1816, sa critique d'Élie Decazes, ministre de la Police, dépasse les bornes (il le traite de « maquereau ») : il est interdit de se présenter à la cour, disgrâce qui dure jusqu'au 28 février 1817. Son opposition au gouvernement entraîne même une approche des ultras, opposés à Richelieu et Decazes qui poursuivent en partie la politique libérale de Talleyrand. En 1818, il a une occasion de revenir au pouvoir, mais le roi, qui ne l'« aime [ni ne l'] estime », lui préfère Jean Dessolle, puis Decazes, puis à nouveau Richelieu en 1820. Il est désormais convaincu que le roi ne veut plus de lui. Alors que les ultras sont de plus en plus influents, Talleyrand, désormais proche des doctrinaires, en particulier de Pierre-Paul Royer-Collard qu'il a pour voisin à Valençay, se place pour le reste de la Restauration dans l'opposition libérale : il prononce le 24 juillet 1821, puis en février 1822 des discours à la Chambre des pairs pour défendre la liberté de la presse, puis le 3 février 1823 contre l'expédition d'Espagne, voulue par Chateaubriand. Il est alors d'autant plus détesté par les ultras que son rôle dans l'assassinat du duc d'Enghien est révélé par Savary, qui est alors exilé par Louis XVIII, lequel souhaite protéger l'honneur de son grand chambellan.

        Deutsches Wort aus Preussen an die Rheinländer. Als Antwort auf die Schrift: Uebergabe der Adresse der Stadt Coblenz und der Landschaft an Se. Majestät den König in öffentlicher Audienz bei Sr. Durchl. dem Fürsten Staats-Kanzler am 12.Januar 1818.

      (Wiesbaden, Schellenberg) 1818 - Titel, 101 S. Bedruckte Orig.-Broschur. Leicht fleckig, leicht berieben, Vorderdeckel mit kleinem Eckabriss. Erste Ausgabe (nicht bei Goedeke). – Leicht stockfleckig, etliche schwache Anstreichungen in rot. Im Vorwort zu der noch immer grundlegenden Biographie (David Ferdinand Koreff. Serapionsbruder, Magnetiseur, Geheimrat und Dichter, Berlin u.a. 1927) schreibt F.v. Oppeln-Bronikowski über KOREFF (Breslau 1783 – 1851 Paris): „Er war berühmt als Arzt und ‚Magnetiseur‘, bekannt als Dichter, Übersetzer und Schriftsteller, Mitbegründer der Berliner Romantik und der Universität Bonn, Leibarzt und Günstling des Staatskanzlers Fürst HARDENBERG, Professor an der Universität Berlin und Geheimer Oberregierungsrat in der Staatskanzlei, Weltmann und Serapionsbruder, Freund schöner und geistvoller Damen, bekannt oder befreundet mit den hervorragendsten Zeitgenossen wie CHAMISSO und VARNHAGEN, die Brüder SCHLEGEL und HUMBOLDT, E.TH.A.HOFFMANN und PÜCKLER, MEYERBEER und HEINE, TALLEYRAND und BENJAMIN CONSTANT, VICTOR HUGO und DUMAS, DELACROIX und SPONTINI, MÉRIMÉE und BEYLE-STENDHAL und hundert anderen, kurz einer der vielseitigsten und zugleich der hilfsbereitesten Menschen, eine typische Mittlernatur, ein Bindeglied zwischen deutscher und französischer Kultur, ein Brennpunkt von tausend geistigen und praktischen Strebungen. Daß ein Mann von solcher Wirkung in die Weite so gut wie vergessen werden konnte, ist merkwürdig. Aber gerade seine Vielseitigkeit ist ihm zum Verhängnis geworden.“ (S.1*f.). Ein Aspekt dieser Vielseitigkeit war KOREFFs Tätigkeit im preußischen Staatsdienst als Vertrauter des Kanzlers HARDENBERG, in dessen Auftrag die vorliegende Schrift entstand, seine einzige Veröffentlichung politischen Inhalts. KOREFF hatte sich seit 1814 aufgehalten, wo der Arzt KAROLINE, die Frau des Kongressteilnehmers WILHELM VON HUMBOLDT, erfolgreich behandelt hatte. „WILHELM V.HUMBOLDT hatte ihn [1815], gewiß auf Betreiben seiner Gattin, aber auch aus eigner Wertschätzung, dem Staatskanzler [HARDENBERG] zugeführt, und dieser beschloß, ihn dauernd für den preußischen Staatsdienst zu gewinnen .“ (ebda S.45*). KOREFF begleitete als Berater HARDENBERG fortan auf zahlreichen Reisen. „Im Winter 1817/8 ging es dann wieder an den Rhein, und hier ereignete sich jene merkwürdige Szene in Koblenz . Die Koblenzer wollten den König an das Verfassungsversprechen erinnern und ihr Wortführer GÖRRES, ein wunderliches Gemisch von Jakobiner und Reaktionär, gab ihrer Adresse eine entsprechende Fassung, die auf Wiederherstellung der alten Landstände und der ‚uralten, wahrhaft deutschen Verfassung‘ abzielte. Mit dieser Adresse . erschien GÖRRES am 12.Januar 1818 vor dem Staatskanzler in revolutionärer Haartracht und Kleidung . Der Staatskanzler hörte seine pathetische Rede freundlich an, erklärte jedoch, daß er weit liberaler denke als die Abgeordneten; die einfache Wiederherstellung überwundener Zustände sei jedoch nicht möglich. Nachher schilderte GÖRRES diese Audienz, das ‚Maifeld des Frankenstammes‘, in einer musterhaft ungeschickten Flugschrift, und am Hofe regte sich die reaktionäre Partei, um den Vorfall gegen HARDENBERG auszubeuten. KOREFF, der diesem Auftritt vielleicht beigewohnt hat, wurde mit der Abfassung einer Gegenschrift beauftragt .; Hardenberg hat sie vor ihrer Drucklegung nur durchgesehen. Da Koreff die Amtsverschwiegenheit wahrte, zerbrachen die Politiker sich den Kopf, ob er wohl der Verfasser sei.“ (S.59*f.). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Golownin was withdrawn from the British fleet by the Tsar to do a survey of the Sea of Okhotsk, the Southern Kuriles & the Japan Sea. . Despite his peaceful signals, the Japanese cannon blazed away at him, eventually he & his crew of the "Diana" were taken prisoners. . This is the famous & historic true account of what Golownin saw, where he went and what he did during his three year sojourn in Japan. . An early & most excellent primary resource. *** Golovnin was given command of the sloop Diana in 1806, and made his first voyage around the world (1807-1809), with the object of conducting a survey of the northern Pacific, and transporting supplies to Okhotsk. . The Diana set sail from Kronstadt on July 7, 1807. A severe storm in April 1808 prevented the Diana from sailing around Cape Horn, and Golovnin decided to set sail for the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa, to restock the ship's supplies. He anchored in the nearby port of Simon's Town on May 3, 1808. Golovnin, having been at sea for ten months, was unaware that Russian relations with Britain had deteriorated, and Russia had allied herself with the French. The Diana was immediately detained as an enemy vessel by a British naval squadron, pending receipt of appropriate instructions from London. . Golovnin and his crew spent more than a year detained aboard the Diana at Simon's Town awaiting a decision from British authorities. When it became increasingly clear that a decision might never come, Golovnin began to plot their escape. On May 28, 1809, perfect conditions presented themselves -a fair wind and poor visibility. The crew severed the anchor cables, and managed successfully to sail out of the bay, passing directly in front of several British warships. Once the British discovered that they had escaped, they set off in pursuit, but failed to overtake the Diana, which sailed safely at Kamchatka in 1810.[5] News of the Diana's "audacious escape" quickly spread throughout the world. Extracted from Wikipedia. *** CAPTIVITY IN JAPAN: In 1811, Golovnin described and mapped the Kuril Islands from the Strait of Hope to the eastern shores of Iturup Island (Etorofu in Japanese). . While exploring Kunashir Island (Kunashiri in Japanese), Golovnin was lured ashore, taken prisoner, charged with violating Sakoku (a Japanese policy prohibiting foreigners from entering Japan), and held captive for two years by the Japanese on the island of Hokkaido. Golovnin was said to possess a "superior education and fascination with foreign cultures." After making one failed attempt to escape his captures, Golovnin decided to utilize his time in detainment to master the Japanese language, and familiarize himself with Japanese culture and traditions. . Golovnin was released in 1813, returned to Russia, and published an account of his years in captivity.[12] His book, Captivity in Japan During the Years 1811, 1812, 1813, became an instant classic. It was hailed in Russia as an authoritative volume on Japanese culture, and helped shape an entire generation's view of Japan. Golovnin clearly respected the Japanese, portraying them "as intelligent, as patriotic, and as worthy rivals" of the Russians in the Pacific. The captivity of Golovnin almost led to war between Russia and Japan in what became known as the Golovnin Incident.

        Oeffentliche Rechenschaft über meine zwölfjährige Dienstführung als zweiter Arzt des Königlichen Charite-Krankenhauses zu Berlin, nebst Erfahrungen über Krankenhäuser und Irrenanstalten

      Berlin Realschulbuchhandlung, 1818 - EA! - Horn (1774-1848) war seit 1806 2. dirigierender Arzt an der Charite (1. Arzt war Hufeland). Er schrieb diese zur Selbstverteidigung gedachte Schrift nach seinem Ausscheiden aus dem Dienst. Ein Kollege (Kohlrausch) hatte ihn öffentlich angegriffen und für die Mißstände in der psychiatrischen Abteilung verantwortlich gemacht; insbesondere war Horn der Tod einer Kranken in dem sog. "Sack" vorgeworfen worden. DÖRNER (Bürger und Irre, 279ff.) bezeichnet dieses Buch als "das beste Dokument der Ausdehnung bürgerlicher Vernunftherrschaft auf die Unvernunft der Irren im Rahmen der preußischen Reformzeit" und charakterisiert Horns therapeutische Ideen als "preußische Kurmethode". Die Kupfer enthalten anschauliche Darstellungen der "Behandlungsmethoden" Horns, beispielsweise Gruppen von Patientinnen, die im Garten mit Holzgewehren exerzieren mußten. Das Buch gibt nicht nur einen umfassenden Überblick über den Stand der Psychiatrie zu Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts, sondern auch über die Zuständen in einem Krankenhaus unter den Bedingungen der französischen Besatzung überhaupt.

        Anti - Israel. Eine Vorlesung in der geheimen Akademie zum grünen Esel als Eintrittsrede gehalten von Horatius Cocles.

      (Aarau, Sauerländer), 1818.58 S. Umschlag d. Zt. Goed. VII, 244, 19, 6 (falsch: 1819). - Erste Ausgabe der projüdischen Satire des Publizisten, Politikers und Schriftstellers Karl Christian Ernst von Bentzel - Sternau (1767 - 1849); "Anti - Israel" machte Bentzel - Sternau bekannt und bei nationalistischen Gruppen verhasst. Seine Werke wurden auf dem Wartburg - Fest symbolisch verbrannt. Die heute selten gewordene kleine Schrift ist eine Reaktion auf die antisemitischen Traktate von Friedrich Rühs und Jakob Friedrich Fries, die den Untergang der jüdischen Religion durch Konversion forderten und diese "Kaste mit Stumpf und Stiel ausgerottet" sehen wollten. Bentzel - Sternau zählte zu der kleinen Gruppe aufklärerischer Publizisten, die sich nach dem Wiener Kongress dem aufbrandenden völkischen Antisemitismus entgegen stellten, der 1819 in den sogenannten "Hep - Hep Unruhen" kulminierte. - Unbeschnittenes, auf besserem Papier gedrucktes Exemplar.

        NARRATIVE OF MY CAPTIVITY IN JAPAN, DURING THE YEARS 1811, 1812 & 1813: WITH OBS

      London 1818, Colburn. FIRST EDITION. Full contemporary lea-. ther, 302+348p., very good front cover old gilt stamped lib-. rary name, corner bumped, minor scuffing, sound, solid copy,. mostly bright, clean paper, almost no foxing,2 vols. R A R E. A FAMOUS 1818 EARLY RUSSIAN VOYAGE TO JAPAN SUBTITLE: continued: "... of the Author & his Companions, by Captain Rikord. *** WHO WAS CAPT. VASILY GOLOWNIN: Vasily Mikhailovich Golovnin, Russian [19 April [O.S. 8 April 1776], Gulyniki, Ryazan Oblast, Russia 11 July [O.S. 29 June] 1831, Saint Petersburg, Russia, was a Russian navigator, Vice Admiral, and Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Science *** An excellent and most early reliable resource for first contacts between the Japanese & Russians. * Captain Vasili Golowinin was captured and held by the Japanese for some three years, where he learned much about Japan and Japanese. Golownin was withdrawn from the British fleet by the Tsar to do a survey of the Sea of Okhotsk, the Southern Kuriles & the Japan Sea. . Despite his peaceful signals, the Japanese cannon blazed away at him, eventually he & his crew of the "Diana" were taken prisoners. . This is the famous & historic true account of what Golownin saw, where he went and what he did during his three year sojourn in Japan. . An early & most excellent primary resource. *** Golovnin was given command of the sloop Diana in 1806, and made his first voyage around the world (1807-1809), with the object of conducting a survey of the northern Pacific, and transporting supplies to Okhotsk. . The Diana set sail from Kronstadt on July 7, 1807. A severe storm in April 1808 prevented the Diana from sailing around Cape Horn, and Golovnin decided to set sail for the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa, to restock the ship's supplies. He anchored in the nearby port of Simon's Town on May 3, 1808. Golovnin, having been at sea for ten months, was unaware that Russian relations with Britain had deteriorated, and Russia had allied herself with the French. The Diana was immediately detained as an enemy vessel by a British naval squadron, pending receipt of appropriate instructions from London. . Golovnin and his crew spent more than a year detained aboard the Diana at Simon's Town awaiting a decision from British authorities. When it became increasingly clear that a decision might never come, Golovnin began to plot their escape. On May 28, 1809, perfect conditions presented themselves -a fair wind and poor visibility. The crew severed the anchor cables, and managed successfully to sail out of the bay, passing directly in front of several British warships. Once the British discovered that they had escaped, they set off in pursuit, but failed to overtake the Diana, which sailed safely at Kamchatka in 1810.[5] News of the Diana's "audacious escape" quickly spread throughout the world. Extracted from Wikipedia. *** CAPTIVITY IN JAPAN: In 1811, Golovnin described and mapped the Kuril Islands from the Strait of Hope to the eastern shores of Iturup Island (Etorofu in Japanese). . While exploring Kunashir Island (Kunashiri in Japanese), Golovnin was lured ashore, taken prisoner, charged with violating Sakoku (a Japanese policy prohibiting foreigners from entering Japan), and held captive for two years by the Japanese on the island of Hokkaido. Golovnin was said to possess a "superior education and fascination with foreign cultures." After making one failed attempt to escape his captures, Golovnin decided to utilize his time in detainment to master the Japanese language, and familiarize himself with Japanese culture and traditions. . Golovnin was released in 1813, returned to Russia, and published an account of his years in captivity.[12] His book, Captivity in Japan During the Years 1811, 1812, 1813, became an instant classic. It was hailed in Russia as an authoritative volume on Japanese culture, and helped shape an entire generation's view of Japan. Golovnin clearly respected the Japanese, portraying them "as intelligent, as patriotic, and as worthy rivals" of the Russians in the Pacific. The captivity of Golovnin almost led to war between Russia and Japan in what became known as the Golovnin Incident.

        In Congress, July 4th. 1776. The Unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America

      [Washington]: Benjamin Owen Tyler, 1818. Broadside. (29 x 24 1/4 inches). Engraving, on paper, by Peter Maverick of Newark, NJ, after Tyler, backed onto linen, edged with black linen tape, ebonised wood rollers at head and foot, age-toned. A remarkable document, the present Tyler facsimile is the first publication of the "Declaration of Independence" in the same form as the original. The Declaration of Independence , the foundation document of the United States, has been printed myriad times since its original publication in 1776. At first as broadsides, then as an essential addition to any volume of laws, it was from the beginning a basic work in the American canon. In the period following the War of 1812, Americans began to look back, for the first time with historical perspective, on the era of the founding of the country. The republic was now forty years old, and the generation of the Revolution, including the Signers of the Declaration, was dropping away. With nostalgia and curiosity, many Americans began to examine the details of the nation's founding. Among other things, such documents as the debates of the Constitutional Convention were published for the first time. Others revisited the Declaration - not the often reprinted text, but the actual document itself, then preserved in the State Department. They discovered remarkable differences between the original and the published versions. First, the title of the document was different (the manuscript original was as given above); secondly, the names of the Signers, now revered as the Founders, were omitted in all the published versions. It seemed extraordinary that the document, as created, was unknown to Americans, when the text was so central to the national identity. Several entrepreneurs set out to remedy this gap. The first to do so was a writing master named Benjamin Owen Tyler. Tyler decided to create a calligraphy version of the Declaration , giving the title and text exactly as it appeared in the original manuscript (although not directly copying its format), and then recreating exactly the signatures of the Signers as they appeared on the original. This he did to a remarkable degree. John Bidwell notes: "Tyler...retained every stroke and nuance of his models, preserving their proportions, stress, and weight...so convincing are his signatures that they masquerade as the originals in a recent book on American autographs...." Tyler won the endorsement of Secretary of State John Quincy Adams and, more importantly, that of the author of the Declaration , Thomas Jefferson, to whom his edition is dedicated. The Tyler facsimile was published on paper at five dollars, or on vellum at seven dollars. Only three copies on vellum survive. This is one of the copies printed on paper. John Bidwell has fully documented the story of Tyler's creation.

Droin de Bercy publia un ouvrage qui pour la première fois traitait du continent américain dans son intégralité. Il rédigea le livre après le voyage qu'il fit en Amérique durant treize ans. A travers son ouvrage il décrit les particularités de ces régions qu'il observa par rapport à la géographie, la faune, la flore, l'ethnologie, les moeurs autochtones en les mettant parfois en parallèles avec celles de l'Europe ou d'autres continents. Il parle notamment d'un animal "appelé par ironie Léger-pierre à cause de son extrême lenteur; il ressemble beaucoup au paresseux. [.] Ce que le léger-pierre à de particulier et qui le distingue par rapport à l'autre c'est qu'à chaque effort qu'il fait pour se remuer , il pousse un cri si plaintif, si désagréable, qu'il excite en même-temps le dégout et la pitié." De même, Bercy cite également d'autres auteurs tels que Buffon, Humbolt et surtout Pauw pour compléter ses propos ou pour réfuter leurs idées.

        The life and adventures of an eccentric traveller. With engravings.

      York: printed for the author, by M. W. Carrall, 1818. 8vo, (4) + iv + 105 + (1)pp, two whole-page woodcut plates and six smaller woodcuts in the text, original boards, rebacked, entirely uncut. A very good copy. First edition. A charming curiosity, with numerous eccentric but at times delightful vignettes of high and low life. Thus he writes of 'gold': 'In all countries, gold seems to be a traveller, a certain and undeniable talisman, that opens all the avenues which lead either to pleasure or information, and is more sure in its operation, than patience itself. Money will most infallibly extract sincerity from a Frenchman, open the door of hospitality from a Dutchman, and even make a Spanish Don familiar and obliging; this score it behoves everyone who has a penchant for travelling, to line his pocket well with this necessary evil.' And of a gang of gypsies: 'Asses, mules, dogs, tinkers' tools, and potcrates, formed the chief assemblage of this noisy set, amongst which also appeared ragged women, and climbing boys with brushes in their hands, emblems of their trade ...'. The woodcut frontispiece is a delightful view of The Travellers' Embarkation for the Continent>, showing a relevant dockside scene. The identity of the author is vague. He tells us that he was born in York in June 1756, his father being 'an eminent professional gentleman ..... who supported a numerous family by his medical abilities'. Educated by Jesuits in Flanders, Charles returned home in 1777 and eventually became a country apothecary. Of course, the whole thing may actually be fiction.

        HAYTIAN PAPERS. A COLLECTION OF THE VERY INTERESTING PROCLAMATIONS AND OTHER OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS, TOGETHER WITH SOME ACCOUNT OF THE RISE, PROGRESS, AND PRESENT STATE OF THE KINGDOM OF HAYTI

      Boston, 1818. Original orange printed boards. Spine partially perished, boards lightly warped and soiled. Light foxing and toning. Contemporary inscription on fly leaf. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth box, spine gilt. The first American edition, after the first London edition of 1816, of this work by an African-American author. Prince Saunders (1775-1839) attended Dartmouth and later taught for four years at Boston's African School. In 1816 he became adviser to Haitian Emperor Henri Christophe, where he set up schools and promoted emigration to Haiti for American Blacks. After Christophe was overthrown (and committed suicide) in 1821, Saunders returned to America, but he later emigrated back to Haiti to escape racial persecution. At the time of his death, Saunders was serving as attorney general of Haiti. The fly leaf bears a presentation inscription from John James to Robert Moore, M.D., dated 1818. James was a Quaker merchant, long involved with the abolitionist movements. In the autumn of 1818, while Saunders was in Philadelphia, James introduced him to Spanish ambassador Don Luis Onìs. Both James and Moore, also a fellow Quaker, were party to the 1783 Quaker Anti-Slavery Petition, which was submitted to the Continental Congress in the form of an Address from the Friend's Yearly Meeting. Dr. Moore's wife was also elected the first president of the Female Anti-Slavery Society when it was formed in 1833. Relatively scarce on the market. ABPC shows only two copies of this edition at auction, both appearing over thirty years ago. This copy is truly lovely, in the original boards and with an interesting and important association.

        Notes on a Journey in America, from the Coast of Virginia to the Territory of Illinois

      156+[4 ads] pages. Folding frontispiece map outlined in contemporary color. Royal Octavo (9 1/4" x 6"). Contemporary paper boards, paper label. (Howes: B468) 4th edition.Morris Birkbeck left his large farm in Surrey, England in order to emigrate to America in the spring of 1817, at age fifty-three. Together with his associate George Flower, he hoped to establish an agricultural settlement providing members of the English working class with new opportunities in America. The men searched Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois for a suitable site. Anti-slavery sentiments ruled out the southern United States, and an aversion to harsh winters led them away from more northerly climates. Finally, they selected the prairie between Bon Pas Creek and the Little Wabash River in Illinois as the site of their settlement. While Birkbeck bought 26,400 acres of land in what is now southeastern Illinois with their pooled funds, Flower returned to England, where he recruited many prospective colonists and sent them to the United States. In March 1818 Flower returned to America with agricultural implements, seeds, and animals for breeding, as well as about fifty new immigrants. Birkbeck and Flower named their settlement Albion, an ancient term synonymous with England. It included what was probably the earliest library in the Illinois Territory. In 1817 and 1818 Morris Birkbeck wrote two books, Letters from Illinois, and Notes on a Journey from the Coast of Virginia to the Territory Illinois, which helped to bring public attention to the Albion settlement and attract new immigrants. Each book described the bountiful opportunities available in the American West, and became popular in the United States and Europe. In 1819 Morris Birkbeck organized the Agricultural Society of Illinois. Albion's colonists practiced scientific agriculture, improving livestock through selective breeding and writing tracts to inform settlers of ways to improve crop yields. In about 1819 Birkbeck and Flower experienced a falling out, and subsequently transacted all business through intermediaries. Morris Birkbeck drowned on June 4, 1825, while attempting to swim his horse across the flooded Fox River. Condition:Spine and corners professionally repaired, spine label faded and chipped, previous owner's name on front paste down, some soiling. Some pencil underlining. Map complete with a tear with no loss, else a very good copy.

        [A series of 12 British Acts of Parliament concerning whaling, mostly in Greenland and the Davis Strait]

      London: John Baskett [and others], printers, 1818. 12 works, folio. (12 1/2 x 8 inches, and smaller). Disbound or stitched A fascinating series spanning the whole of the period when whaling was carried out on a successful commercial basis in the waters off Greenland. After an abortive start by the South Sea Company between 1724 and 1732, the British whaling fleet operated off Greenland and the Davis Strait throughout the remainder of the 18th century, with increasing success due to a large degree to the succession of bounties granted to ship owners by the British Government. The present selection of acts of parliament includes a number concerning the bounty: the first, dated 16th January 1732 makes law "that a Bounty [will] be paid on the Return of every Ship [of 200 tons and over] imployed by His Majesty's Subjects in the Whale Fishery". For the bounty to be paid, certain stringent criteria had to be met; these increased as the century progressed. By the time of the last Act in the present group (March 1818) the Greenland whalers were reporting declining catches and were already beginning to turn their attention to other whaling grounds, i.e. largely in the Pacific and Antarctic. This group offers and interesting series of snapshots of the industry during its most productive century. The acts comprise: 1. An Act for encouraging the Greenland Fishery. 1732. Stitched, later wrappers. Exemption from duty extended for a nine year period. 2. An Act for the further Encouragment of the Whale Fishery carried on by His Majesty's British Subjects. 1733. Stitched, later wrappers. The introduction of a bounty for ships over 200 tons. 3. An Act for continuing the several Laws therein mentioned ... [including] granting a further Bounty for all Ships employed in the Whale Fishery during the present War; for exempting Harponers and others ... from being impressed... [No date but circa 1750]. Spine reinforced. The bounty raised by a third, other measures to help the trade. 4. An Act for granting a additional Bounty on Ships employed in the Greenland and Whale Fishery, for a limited time. [No adte but circa 1761]. Disbound. The increased bounty confirmed for another five years. 5.An Act for further continuing several Acts ... for the Encouragement of the Whale Fishery.. 1768. Stitched. 6. An Act for the better Support and Establishment of the Greenland and Whale Fishery. 1771. Stitched. The rules about the amount of bounty to be paid has changed, with additional laws concerning vessels of American origin, exemption from duty extended to include the Gulf of St. Lawrence, certain members of a whaler's crew to be exempt from being pressed into service in the Royal Navy, etc. 7.An Act to explain and amend Two Acts made ... with respect to the Limits of the Greenland Seas and Davis's Streights ... and to enlarge the Time for the Return of the Vessels employed in the Whale Fisheries. 1780. Stitched. 8. An Act for granting an additional Bounty on Ships employed in the Greenland and Whale Fishery, for a limited Time. 1782. Disbound. The bounty retained for a further five years. 9. An Act for allowing Vessels employed in the Greenland Whale Fishery, to complete their full Number of Men at certain Ports, for the Present Season. 1805. Spine strengthened. Whaling ships permitted to call in to ports in Scotland, the Orkneys and the Shetland Islands to find men to complete their crews. 10. An Act for allowing, until the Signature of Preliminary Articles of Peace, Vessels ... to complete their full Number of Men at certain ports. 1806. Spine strenghtened. An extension of the previous act. 11. An Act to revive and continue [for five years] several Laws... 1815. Strengthened spine. Several prvious acts re-confirmed. 12. An Act to amend an Act ... so far as it relates to the Oaths thereby required... 1818. Unbound. Concerns the oaths required from owners/captains before the bounty due would be released to them.

        [A Series of Picturesque Views of the River Thames. From the drawings of Wm. Havell. Dedicated to the commissioners of Thames navigation, by ... Robt. Havell]

      [London: Robert Havell, 1818. Large folio. (22 7/8 x 17 3/4 inches). 12 hand-coloured aquatint plates by Robert Havell after William Havell, each with black ruled border at the edge of the image and a buff wash border, on thin card, all on guards. Expertly bound to style in dark green straight-grained morocco, covers with fine decorative border composed from fillets and an arabesque roll-tool of stylized foliage, spine in eight compartments with double raised bands, the bands highlighted in gilt, lettered in the second and fourth compartments, the others with repeat decoration in gilt made up from various small tools, gilt turn-ins, gilt edges A very fine copy of this important series of Thames views: a visual essay in the picturesque from one of the great watercolour landscape artists of the time, with plates by Audubon's engraver. The publication of the present work, present here in its rare second edition, marked the start of a long series of important publications by Robert Havell that were to culminate with his work on Audubon's Birds of America. The British Dictionary of National Biography describes William Havell as being "one of the best earlier painters in watercolour," an artist of the highest calibre whose images are "distinguished by pure and delicate colour." Born in 1782 in Reading, England, he traveled widely in his search for subjects: Wales, the Lake District, Europe and eight years in India and Burma. However, the present series drawn from the river that flowed through his home town is arguably his best work. The panoramic views betray the artist's intimate understanding of his subject, he ably captures both the river as a calm focus for scenes of great picturesque beauty, and the river as a vital highway for transport and trade. The plates, here bound without the title, offer the viewer a visual journey: from Oxford and the famous skyline of the Colleges, through the busy market town of Abingdon, to Wallingford (a view taken in 1810 whilst the bridge was being repaired), then two wonderful truly panoramic views of the Thames Valley, one viewed from higher ground at Streatley, and a second of Caversham Bridge near Reading. The journey continues with bucolic views near Park Place in Oxfordshire, the weir viewed from Marlow bridge and Clifden spring and woods, near Maidenhead. Taplow is next, then an interesting view of Windsor Castle before the renovations showing a skyline that is strange yet familiar. The journey ends with a fine view of Datchet Ferry near Windsor and a spectacular view of Staines church in newly emerged sunlight, whilst the rain clouds behind are lightened by a beautifully observed double rainbow.

        Paris et ses alentours, à plus de trente lieues à la ronde; ouvrage national de gravures

      Paris: Firmin Didot, 1818. Large folio. (28 3/4 x 21 inches). Letterpress title (verso blank), 1p. dedication to Louis XVIII (verso blank), 1p. 'avant-propos' (verso blank), 30ll. explanatory text (all but two printed recto only, one leaf preceding each plate). 30 fine uncoloured aquatint plates by and after Damame-Démartrais. (The 12th plate, a view of Notre-Dame, with a repaired tear in the outer margin). Contemporary blue/green straight-grained morocco-backed paper-covered boards, the flat spine divided into six compartments by double gilt fillets, lettered in the second compartment, old repairs to spine A beautiful and rare large-scale work of views of Paris and its environs. According to Dulau's 1828 catalogue this work was originally sold in parts. They offered the present uncoloured issue at £20 (item 12456), whilst the issue with the plates printed in colours and finished by hand (item 12457) was on sale at £40. An idea of the book's current rarity can be garnered from the fact that OCLC list only a single copy: that in the Victoria & Albert Museum's "National Art Library" in London, and even the distinguished Bobins collection contains only a fragmentary work (with 5 plates in two states). Damame-Démartrais is now best known for his Collection complete des divers jardins et points de vue des maisons de plaisance imperiales de Russie.. .. [Paris, 1811]: a result of the nine years he spent living in Moscow and St.Petersburg between 1796 and 1805. Paris born, Damame-Démartrais was apparently taught by David but is now celebrated for his drawings and aquatints. The present work, dedicated to King Louis XVIII, was prompted by the artist's wish to record the new open vistas in Paris and its environs: each of the beautiful large-scale plates is accompanied by brief text which gives relevant details of the subject. The artist also notes in the 'avant-propos' that this work fills a gap, as there were no other comparable books of views of Paris and its environs. The majority of the plates are of places in Paris, but, as the title suggests, there are also a significant minority of the views of beautiful locations outside the city. Cf. Bobins The Exotic and the Beautiful II, 516; A Catalogue of the Library of the Athenæum (1845) p.85; A. Dulau & Co. Catalogue of Books in Foreign Languages , A. Dulau & Co. (1828) p.600; F. E.
