        REPORT OF THE TRIAL OF CHARLES N. BALDWIN, FOR A LIBEL, IN PUBLISHING, IN THE REPUBLICAN CHRONICLE, CERTAIN CHARGES OF FRAUD AND SWINDLING, IN THE MANAGEMENT OF LOTTERIES IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK, CONTAINING, THE PUBLICATIONS IN RELATION TO THIS INTERESTING SUBJECT-- THE EVIDENCE-- THE SPEECHES OF THE COUNSEL ON BOTH SIDES, AND THE CHARGE OF HON. C.D. COLDEN, MAYOR OF THE CITY OF NEW-YORK, TO THE JURY. THE TRIAL COMMENCED ON TUESDAY THE 10TH OF NOVEMBER, AND LASTED UNTIL FRIDAY MORNING 2 O'CLOCK, WHEN THE JURY RETURNED A VERDICT OF "NOT GUILTY." THE WHOLE BEING TAKEN DOWN IN SHORT HAND, AT THE TRIAL, WITH GREAT ACCURACY.

      New York:: Printed and Published by C.N. Baldwin,. 1818. 124pp, spine reinforced. Light tanning and foxing, light accession blindstamp and rubberstamp withdrawal. Title leaf reinforced with tape at blank inner margin. Good+. A classic First Amendment case. Baldwin, editor of the Republican Chronicle in New York City, was indicted for libel after charging that the State-sponsored lottery was rigged. This Report, published after his acquittal, is his sweet revenge, demonstrating that "the honest and unsuspecting people have been swindled almost beyond the possibility of calculation." Moreover, "the fraud was so deeply hid, and artfully played off under the cloak of a benevolent Jew-- and an uncommonly pious Christian-- that both Jews and Christians have been mortified if not disgraced by the trick." The Jew was Naphthali Judah, a prominent New York bookseller, pillar of Congregation Shearith Israel, and Sachem of Tammany Hall. The Christian was the prominent New Yorker John Sickles. The courtroom testimony exposes fraud and skullduggery, and vindicates Baldwin. FIRST EDITION. McCoy, Freedom of the Press B32. Cohen 13269. II Harv. Law Cat. 1009. Marke 1019. Not in Singerman or Rosenbach.

        Gleanings And Remarks: Collected During Months Residence At Buenos Ayres, And Within the Upper Country; With A Prefatory Account of the Expedition From England, Until The Surrender of the Colony of the Cape of Good Hope, Under the Joint Command of Sir D. Baird,. and Sir Home Popham,.

      Printed by D.B. Whirst For the Author, Leeds 1818 - First edition. From the library of Colonel Adamson, K.T.S., who participated in the events described in this work; with his signature on the titlepage. Tall 8vo., contemporary calf spine, marble boards, ii, 242pp. With a map of South America and a Chart of Rio de la Plata. Approximately 50pp has brown stains (mostly marginal/foxing) and there is occasional browning and foxing, the map and chart both have some foxing, the outer front hinge is slightly cracked and tender, the binding has wear and rubbing but this is still an acceptable copy. Sabin 27391. Alexander Gillespie served as a Major in the Royal Marines, and Colonel (then Lieutenant) Peter Adamson took part in the invasions of the River Plate during the Napoleonic Wars. The British made several unsuccessful attempts to seize control of the Spanish colonies around the Plate Basin in South America in 1806 and 1807. During the first invasion in 1806, the British occupied Buenos Aires but were expelled in 1807, and the second involved occupation of Montevideo while a second force attempted to retake Buenos Aires; in both instances the British forces were repelled. The defeat of the British in 1807 under General Whitelocke was deemed such a disaster that it resulted in Whitelocke's court-martial. Both Gillespie and Adamson were captured, the later escaped while Gillespie was eventually released but did not return to the United Kingdom for 10 years. Gillespie wrote the above account of his time in Buenos Aires. Peter Adamson [1779-1865], a Scot, was appointed an Ensign in 1800, a Lieutenant in 1801, and a Captain in 1808, and while on loan to the Portuguese Army rose to the rank of Brevet-Major General. He served at the Cape and in South America and was one of the few who effected their escape from the interior of South America after the failed British invasion. In June of 1807 he wrote "Having effected my escape from the interior of South America, I take the liberty of informing you, that. I left the following gentleman along with my friend, your brother viz. Captains Mackenzie and Gillespie. I think I may venture to say, that we shall have the power of liberating our brother officers in very few weeks, as Buenos Ayres must fall immediately." Adamson's role in the British invasion, occupation and subsequent expulsion from Buenos Aires is covered in Gillespie's account as he is mentioned on numerous pages. In 1817 Adamson had made a journey to Canada and purchased property and he returned in 1820, settling in Canada (Erindale now part of Mississauga) for the remainder of his life. He served as a member of the Legislative Council of Upper Canada until the Union in 1841. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Essais de Michel de Montaigne. Nouvelle édition

      Lefèvre, Paris 1818 - ____ "Cette édition réunit à tous les avantages de celle de Naigeon, plusieurs améliorations détaillées dans la préface. L'impression est soignée et le papier de belle qualité. On en a tiré cent exemplaires en Grand Papier vélin qui sont fort beaux, et qu'on ne trouve plus facilement." (Brunet). Il s'agit ici de l'un des 100 exemplaires imprimés sur grand papier vélin, contenant le portrait avant la lettre. Il provient de la bibliothèque d'Antoine Augustin Renouard qui a fait ajouter à l'exemplaire un chapitre imprimé avec les mêmes caractères. On lit une note, très probablement de la main de Renouard : "à la fin du cinquième volume est l'éloge de Montaigne, par Mr. Droz, qui se trouve dans l'Art d'être heureux, et dont cet exemplaire a été tiré exprès de surplus pour être placé à la suite de l'ouvrage dont il fait l'éloge." Il a fait relier dans cet exemplaire 6 portraits : outre le portrait de Tardieu, un portrait de Richelieu (T. I, IV), un portrait de Montaigne (I, VII), deux autres portraits en tête du tome 3 (dont un dessiné et gravé par Dupont) et un autre par Saint-Aubin en tête du tome 4. Antoine Augustin Renouard (1765-1853) a été libraire, éditeur et grand bibliophile. Il est aussi l'auteur des "Annales de l'imprimerie des Alde".

        The Emigrant's Guide to the Western and Southwestern States and Territories: Comprising a Geographical, and Statistical Description of the States of Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Ohio; the Territories of Alabama, Missouri, and Michigan; and the Western Parts of Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New York..

      New York: Kirk and Merein, 1818. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. 8 vo, pp. [6], 298, xiii (index), with a large folding map (Map of the United States Including Louisiana, partially colored in outline), a folding chart (Chart of Mobile, Perdido, and Pensacola Bays), and a diagram showing the method for surveying and selling public lands. Original calf binding, scuffed. Map has repairs to verso and deep folding creases; light toning to second half of text, front joint starting, but generally clean and sound. William Darby was an American geographer and cartographer who emigrated from Pennsylvania to Mississippi Territory in 1799. The work contains detailed information on the routes (both land and water) and distances between settlements, natural resources, topography, climate, etc. Wagner Camp (14b): "Although written with an emphasis on the more settled regions of Ohio and Mississippi valleys, this guide contains data about the trans-Mississippi country, based only in part on previous accounts. Darby was for years a surveyor in Louisiana; his geographical interest and personal knowledge from various explorations in Texas, Louisiana, and along the Canadian border gave him a voice in the delineation of the boundaries of the United States in both areas. Texas, he wrote in 1817, is 'justly claimed' by the United States, but because 'its territory is not yet politically under the authority of the United States,' immigration should not be encouraged as yet." A note in the interior of Texas on the map reads "this part of the Provincias Internas is but imperfectly known; no scientific traveller having ever explored, the wide range from St. Antonio de Behar to Red River." Howes D-61; Sabin 19527; Hubach, p. 51; Wheat (Transmississippi West) II, 326.

        The Diseases of the Heart and the Aorta.

      FIRST EDITION. G&M 2760. Stokes?s name is associated with the phenomenon known as Cheyne-Stokes respiration. On pp. 320-327 in this book he gives a lucid account of the periodic type of breathing discussed by John Cheyne in 1818, but Cheyne did not associate any diagnostic importance with the syndrome. Stokes in this book also advocated pursuance of a system of graduated muscular exercises to aid in the removal of cardiac debility, especially among younger persons. The book is additionally famous for its accurate descriptions of pericarditis, valvular diseases, and weakening of the heart in typhus fever. It also includes the first description of paroxysmal tachycardia (p. 161).Stokes was a major figure in the Irish school. His reputation was made by his book on diseases of the chest, and he published the first systematic treatise on the use of the stethoscope.Willius & Keys, Cardiac Classics, pp. 484-489. Willius & Dry, pp. 134-135. Bedford catalogue 280.8vo, pp. xvi, 689. With the half-title. Original brown blind-stamped cloth (very nicely rebacked preserving the original backstrip), uncut.

        Laon & Cythna;

      London: printed for Sherwood, Neely & Jones; and C. and J. Ollier, by B. McMillan, 1818. or, the Revolution of the Golden City: A Vision of the Nineteenth Century. In the stanza of Spenser. Octavo. Finely bound c.1900 in tan full morocco, spine in compartments with gilt titles direct, spine and sides elaborately gilt with Art Nouveau floral design, gilt-tooled turn-ins, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Front joint just starting from bottom, very small nicks to corners, spine very slightly darkened, leaves evenly browned but otherwise all in excellent condition. True first edition, very scarce, in excellent condition almost entirely untrimmed (but for gilt top edge) and in a fine Art Nouveau binding. This copy is in the second state, without the rare flyleaf quoting Pindar which (as in all but c.12 known copies). The Errata slip is present in this copy, with the notice that, "the author deems it right to state, that the following Errata are not attributable to the printer", in a catty allusion to printer Buchanan McMillan's numerous unsolicited corrections. It was Shelley's complaint as to this liberty taken by the printer that led C. and J. Ollier, Shelley's publishers, to read, for the first time, quite what they had agreed to publish, noting not only the incendiary political and philosophical content, but more urgently the fact that an incestuous relationship between brother and sister was central to the story. London was alive with gossip about Shelley living with both Mary Godwin and her half-sister Claire Clairmont, and in contemporary usage, such a ménage was termed incest (St. Clair, The Godwins and the Shelleys, p. 432.) At the publishers' request, Shelley then made alterations to those copies which had not already been issued, removing any hint of incest, and gave it the new title The Revolt of Islam, issuing the original sheets with 26 cancelled leaves and a new title leaf (some of which were misdated 1817). This however is the rare true first edition, entirely unexpurgated, and lacking only the almost inaccessibly rare flyleaf with a quotation from Pindar (there are an estimate 12 copies in the first state). Interestingly, Shelley has, in the final paragraph of his characteristically defiant preface to the present text, given an explanation (cancelled in the expurgated edition) for the incestuous plot that points less towards his domestic ménage and more towards his demotic mission: "In the personal conduct of my Hero and Heroine, there is one circumstance which was intended to startle the reader from the trance of ordinary life. It was my object to break through the crust of those outworn opinions on which established institutions depend. I have appealed therefore to the most universal of all feelings, and have endeavoured to strengthen the moral sense, by forbidding it to waste its energies in seeking to avoid actions which are only crimes of convention. It is because there is so great a multitude of artificial vices, that there are so few real virtues." This is a splendidly bound copy of the true first edition of Shelley's longest poem, through which he truly began to work out his own vision for the world (Queen Mab, for all its characteristic enthusiasm, had essentially been a versification of Godwin's Political Justice, and Alastor more of a personal introspection), and in which the poet, as he writes in the dedication lines to Mary, "from that secret store, / wrought linkéd armour for my soul before / it might walk forth to war among mankind.

The fold-out map in excellent, very clean condition with only a very fine sign of a dampstain to the very outer margin. Rare ! And even rarer in this firm condition of the bindings ! William Mariner (1791–1853) was an Englishman who lived in Tonga from 29 November 1806 to (probably) 8 November 1810. He later published Tonga Islands, an account of his experiences that is now one of the major sources of information on Tonga, before it was significantly influenced by European culture, Christianity or colonisation. As a teenager, Mariner was a ship's clerk aboard the British privateer Port au Prince. In 1806, while it was anchored off the Tongan island of Lifuka, in the Ha'apai island group, Port au Prince was seized by a chief named Finau Ulukalala. Most of the crew were killed during the capture of the ship, but the chief spared Mariner and a few crewmates. Mariner lived in Tonga for four years. After returning to England, Mariner he dictated a detailed account of his experiences, a description of Tongan society and culture, and a grammar and dictionary of the Tongan language. The Port-au-Prince was an English private ship of war, a vessel of 500 tons armed with 24 long nine and twelve pound guns as well as 8 twelve pound carronades on the quarter deck. She carried a "letter of marque" and this document permitted her Captain and crew to become pirates against the enemies of England, primarily France and Spain. In payment for their pirate raids any plunder they seized was to be their own. Commanded by Captain Duck she sailed for the New World on 12 February 1805 having been given a twofold commission by her owner, a Mr. Robert Bent of London. Their primary goal was to attack the Spanish ships of the New World capturing gold and valuables but if she failed in that task her secondary objective was to sail into the Pacific in search of whales to be rendered for their oil. The Atlantic crossing was rough but uneventful and she lay off the coast of Brazil by April and then rounded Cape Horn in July before proceeding north in search of Spanish Galleons laden with treasure. They captured a number of ships but most yielded little in the way of valuables and at times the men began to get disgruntled by capturing what they contemptuously referred to as dung barges. The Port-au-Prince was now also on the lookout for whales as well but, although catching a few, experienced little success in this endeavour. After leaving Hawaii in September under the command of Mr. Brown, she intended to make port at Tahiti but missed the target and instead sailed westward for the Tonga Islands. She arrived in Ha'apai on 9 November 1806, almost two years since departing England and after numerous engagements, leaking badly and having already witnessed the death of her captain. She was laden with the spoils of war and cargo amounting to approx twelve thousand dollars plus a considerable amount of copper plus silver and gold ore. A large quantity of silver candlesticks, chalices, incense pans, crucifixes and images complemented the treasure. She weighed anchor, in seven fathoms water off the North West Point of Lifuka Island, for what was destined to be the last time. A number of chiefs visited the ship on the evening of her arrival and brought with them b [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Anatomie générale, précédée des Recherches physiologiques sur la vie et la mort

      1818 - 2 volumes, Paris, Ladrange & Lheureux, 1818, in-8, 2 volumes, [4]-IV-[2]-XI-[1]-270-[2]-432 + 832 pages, portrait-frontispice et 2 tableaux dépliants, demi-basane de l'époque, dos lisses ornés aux urnes, tranches jonquille, Nouvelles éditions de deux des ouvrages, parus à l'origine en 1800, qui établirent la célébrité de François-Xavier Bichat, avec le Traité de membranes : l'Anatomie générale appliquée à la physiologie et à la médecine, "pierre angulaire du savoir médical moderne" (En Français dans le texte), et les Recherches physiologiques sur la vie et la mort. Bichat a organisé une vision générale de la physiologie humaine totalement nouvelle et révolutionnaire. Il est le fondateur de ce que que Claude Bernard appellera la physiologie anatomique ; au lieu d'étudier les organes par région, il les étudiait par rapport à leur fonction, qu'il démontrait par des expériences sur animaux vivants. Avec la Révolution française, il put également accéder à des cadavres fraîchement guillotinés qui lui permirent d'aller plus loin dans ses recherches et de démontrer, notamment, que l'excitation cardiaque par l'électricité ne se produit que lorsque le coeur est stimulé par un contact direct.

        Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus.

      London: for Lackington, Hughes, Harding, Mavor, & Jones,, 1818. In three volumes. 3 volumes, duodecimo (177 × 107 mm). Bound to an attractive contemporary style in 20th-century tan full smooth morocco, spines gilt-ruled in compartments with two black morocco title labels to each, sides bordered with a double gilt rule, marbled endpapers, blind-rolled turn-ins, speckled edges. Housed in a brown morocco-backed bookform folding case. Half title to volume 2, advertisements at the rear of volumes 2 and 3. Mild offset toning and some very light spotting, top edges somewhat dust-darkened, but an excellent copy, well-margined for a later binding, which is appealingly done to style. First edition of Mary Shelley's masterpiece of Gothic horror and early polemic against the hubris of modern science. Written when Mary Shelley was only 19, Frankenstein is not the only memorable remnant of that "wet, ungenial summer" of 1816 at the Villa Diodati (Polidori's The Vampyre has the same origin), but it is certainly the most famous. Frankenstein effortlessly transcends the typical Gothic novel: ruined castles, graveyards and charnel houses appear only briefly or in the distance, and diabolical agency is replaced by human, natural and scientific powers. And unlike most Gothic novels Frankenstein is modern rather than mock-medieval: Mary Shelley managed to reconcile the Prometheus theme, then occupying both her husband Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron, with the most up-to-date scientific preoccupations, anticipating many of the themes of science fiction. The book's moral and philosophical seriousness, sign-posted by its epigraph "Did I request thee, Maker, from my clay / To mould me man? Did I solicit thee / From darkness to promote me?" from Paradise Lost (which the Shelleys were reading together in Bath when much of Frankenstein was written), pitches it still further above the level of gothic sensationalism. Her husband's editorial hand has been noted in various places, particularly in the unsigned preface describing the circumstances of its origin and in the plangent cadences of the closing paragraph.
