        A Prisoner and Private of a Convict Army Regiment Sent to Australia Penal Colony

      Port of Spain, Trinidad, 3-8 September 1818. Manuscript Court Martial proceedings which took place at the Orange Grove Barracks, for the trial and sentencing of Private Thomas Smith for deserting his regiment, and, after being apprehended, escaping imprisonment. Folio. 7 pages of text on two double leafs, laid watermarked paper made by Molineux Johnston in 1813, measuring approximately 32 x 20 cm. Signed in the original by three significant parties involved in the trial, including Governor of Barbados, Lord Combermere. A rare and fascinating primary source account of an Australian penal colony convict. Private Thomas Smith, alias John Jackson (1791-1866), was a convict assigned to Captain Thomas H. Baylis' Company of the Royal York Rangers in 1816. [The Royal York Rangers was formed in 1807 from condemned men, mostly British and Irish prisoners desperate to escape hanging, and also with drafts from the Royal African Corps. Despite this eclectic grouping, it was an extremely effective regiment.] At the risk of receiving lashes and extended sentencing, Smith dared to abandon his imposed commitment of penance and army duty, and fleed the regiment. According to this court document, dated 3 September 1818, he was captured near Arima, Trinidad, in July, having been quartered at Saint Joseph with the regiment, until his desertion. He was tried in Trinidad. The hearing addressed three charges against him, first for desertion from the regiment, also for the crime of leaving with 'Regimental Necessaries', and, after being apprehended, for subsequently escaping from prison captivity. He was found 'Guilty' on all three counts and sentenced as "Felon for Life" to be transported to an un unnamed location. The jury consisted of 14 men of various military regiments. The document further reveals that he had joined the regiment in England in on 14 December 1816. As mentioned in the introduction to the proceeding, the warrant for Smith's arrest and conviction, was issued by the Governor of Barbados himself Stapleton Cotton, 1st Viscount Combermere GCB GCH KSI PC (1773-1865), who held the post from 1817 to 1820. Governor Combermere also signed the document in his hand. The present document appears to be the earliest record of this felon. Following this hearing and conviction, he must have been successfully held until he was transported to a penal colony in Australia one year later. Docketing inscriptions to verso of the second leaf indicate that these papers were sent to the Commander In Chief on 27 January 1819. [According to historical naval records and colonial secretary's correspondence, Smith would arrive at Sydney, then a penal colony, on the ship 'Malabar' along with 169 other exiles on 30 October 1819 and from there was sent to Emu Plains. Commanded by Captain William Ascough, the ship safely delivered 170 male prisoners, 32 soldiers including the guard, 9 women and 6 children. The prisoners were landed in good health and with their rations on 5 November. They were immediately distributed to Parramatta, Windsor, Liverpool and Emu Plains. In the years to follow, Smith was charged with theft and disorderly conduct, worked as part of an iron gang from which he also escaped on several occasions, was sent to Port Macquarie to work for the government, then to Norfolk Island, was transferred to Cockatoo Island, and died in 1857 at age 66 after living an active life as a felon and convict.] Smith must have embarked on the Malabar in Trinidad, as he was already stationed on the island as early as July 1818 after deserting his convict regiment. Though detailed information is limited, and ship registers are scant, Smith evidently left England sometime between 14 December 1816 when he joined the Royal York Rangers and early 1818 when he was posted in Trinidad. Three notable individuals involved in this case have signed the last page of this document in the original: The Governor of Barbados from 1817 to 1820, Stapleton Cotton, 1st Viscount Combermere GCB GCH KSI PC (1773-1865), a British diplomat, politician, and Army officer who commanded a cavalry brigade in Sir Arthur Wellesley's Army before being given overall command of the cavalry in the latter stages of the Peninsular War. Lieutenant Colonel William Smelt, from the 103d Foot, who was the President for this trial. [Possible descendant of Leonard Smelt of Kirkby Fleetham, Yorkshire, who was the Receiver General of casual revenue, Barbados, from 1745 until his death in 1755.] Lieutenant and Adjutant William Firebrace, whose role was Deputy Judge Advocate in this trial. [He obtained the rank of Major in 1836, retired in 1841, and died on the Isle of Wight in 1856] Following are som excerpts from the document: "Proceedings of a General Court Martial held by Virtue of a Warrant bearing date Head Quarters Barbados 30th July 1818, from his Excellency the Right Honorable Lord Combermere G.C.B. [Governor General Barbados], Commander of His Majesty's Forces in the Windward and Leeward Islands - " "Trinidad, Orange Grove Barracks, 3rd September 1818." "Prisoner Private Thomas Smith alias John Jackson... was called into Court... was then asked if he had any objection to the President or any Members... he had not... the charges preferred against him as follows..." "For deserting from his Regiment on or about the 12th July last, and not returning until apprehended and brought back a Prisoner by a Party of Indians or Spaniards on or about the 14th July following."

"For making his Escape when a Prisoner, and again Deserting on or about the 15th July following, and not returning until apprehended by a Party of the Regiment on or about the 28th August following." "To which the Prisoner pleaded Not Guilty...""The Court... proceeded to examine the Evidences...." "... on the Morning of 12th July [1818], two of the Prisoner's Messmates informed him [Captain Thomas Bayliss] that the Prisoner had deserted...""Manuel Pena an Indian resident in the Island being solemnly sworn thro' an Interpreter... answers the following questions... Where did you apprehend him? In the Cocoa Market of Mr. Strickland's Plantation near Arima" How far is this from Port of Spain? About six hours walk. "Serjeant Andrew Honan... deposes as follows... Do you know if he had any Necessaries? I know he had, as I have seen them Inspected.""George Lemon a Discharged Soldier from the Royal York Rangers being called into court... Was the Prisoner under your charge as a Prisoner? He was.... At 1/2 past 7 Oclock in the evening I locked up the Prisoner as well as the rest... but at 5 Oclock next morning when I went to the place where the Prisoners were confined, I found that the Prisoner had effected his escape by digging under the door of his cell and had by that means got out." "Private Michael Dunn... Were you on the Gaol Guard on the 15th July last? I was." "Private Anthony Jones... Were you one of a Party who apprehended the Prisoner on or about the 28th August last? I was... I found him in a Liquor store in the Town..." "Serjeant William Godman... Did you ever see the Prisoner previous to this... from England with the last Draft of Recruits? I did... He [Thomas Smith] joined the Regiment with me on 14th December 1816..." "The Prisoner declines making any defences and throws himself on the mercy of the Court." "The Court having thus found the Prisoner Guilty of the whole of the Charges exhibited against him... Prisoner Private Thomas Smith alias John Jackson... Royal York Rangers, to be Transported as a Felon for Life" Signed "Wm Smelt, Lt. Colonel R. York Rangers, President" Signed "Approved. Combermere SC., Commr. of the Forces." Signed "Will. Firebrace,... 8 September 1818" End Excerpts.

      Paris, Méquignon-Marvis, 1818-1822. ____ Exemplaire complet du 5e volume de supplément qui est très rare et qui contient la PREMIERE EDITION de l' "Exposé des nouvelles découvertes sur le magnétisme et l'électricité", (pages 168-256) d'Ampère et de Babinet et un exposé de Fresnel "De la lumière" (Pages 1-137), et de nombreuses additions d'après la 6e et dernière édition. Seconde édition française et la première avec les textes d'Ampère et de Fresnel. "Si l'on considère que cette cinquième édition paraît après un intervalle de dix ans de la troisième que j'avais traduite, on pourra juger combien elle doit différer de celle-ci." This book "was so popular that it went through six editions during the next heighteen years; it also received the further accolade of appearing in French, German, and American editions. Ast the first systematic treatise of a non elementary kind to break the french monopoly of such works, Thomson's System tried patriocally to do justice to the contributions made by British chemists to the new chemistry, which had been established in the late eighteeen century."

        A New and Accurate Map of North America from the best Authorities

      Philadelphia: Mathew Carey, 1818. Map. Engraving with original outline hand coloring. Images measures 14 x 15" This 1818 map of North America was published in the third and last edition of Carey's "General Atlas". Mapping the continent prior to the explorations of Lewis and Clark, it depicts several interesting features. Hopeful traces of the Northwest passage appear in the north with the appearance of the seas identified by Mackenzie and Hearne. As we move southward, the Columbia River extends eastward to almost meet the Missouri River. The Rockies end close to the Canadian border and another small cluster of mountains are shown near the Colorado River and Rio Grande. Perhaps the most interesting feature is the appearance of the Kingdom of Quivira south of the River of the West. Quivira is one of the lands associated with the Spanish legends of the Seven Cities of Gold. Florida is shows as part of Spanish possessions. Indian tribes such as the Apacheria, Pimas and Yama are identified. The map is in good condition with some wear along the centerfold. Minor foxing at places and offsetting. Some edge wear.Raised in a family of publishers and book sellers, Mathew Carey (1760--1839) became one of the most important figures of early American cartography. Carey was based in Philadelphia, where he owned a publishing firm and oversaw a cottage system of independent artists and craftsmen. His important "Atlas" was the first American-published atlas of the United States. Furthermore, the maps his firm produced represent some of the best quality and most informative depictions of the United States in the early period after it gained independence. This map is a wonderful example of his fine work.

        A Map of the Routes of the British Embassy, from the Mouth of the Peiho River to Pekin and from thence to Canton in the year 1816

      A. Small, London 1818 - Uncolored engraving. Image measures 19.5" x 15.5" This elegant 1816 map of China maps the route of the British Embassy from the mouth of the Peking River to Canton (modern day Guangzhou). Covers the region from the Gulf of Le-O-Tong (Liaodong Bay) south to Guangzhou and Macau. Hong Kong is identified, so is Formosa Island or Taiwan. The Great Wall of China and the Imperial Canal are also marked. Several towns and cities are noted, especially along the Yangtze River, and elevation is rendered by hachure. The map is in good condition with minor wear along the folds and minimal foxing. Tear near bottom margin repaired on verso. Accompanied by title page of journal. Henry Ellis (1788 - 1855) was born in Dublin, Ireland as the illegitimate son of Robert Hobart, chief secretary to the Irish viceroy. He joined the Bengal establishment of the East India Company from 1804 to 1811, and in 1814 secured the post of plenipotentiary to Persia. He was also involved in negotiating the Anglo-American peace treaty in 1815. In 1816, he was appointed public secretary with the rank of third commissioner for Lord Amherst's embassy to China. The embassy, which was on a diplomatic mission to China to protest the ill-treatment of British subjects, left England aboard the "Alceste" in 1816. The mission was largely unsuccessful and on the return trip, the "Alceste" sank after crashing into a submerged rock in the Java Sea. With his shipwrecked companions, including Lord Amherst, Ellis reached Java and on their voyage home, their ship anchored on St. Helena. It was here that he had several interviews with emperor Napoleon, who was in exile there. In one of the interviews, Napoleon is known to have said, "China is a sleeping giant. Let her sleep. For when she wakes, she will shake the world." This map was included in Henry Ellis's "Journal of the Proceedings of the Late Embassy to China", an extensive documentation of the embassy's proceedings. A quote on the title page of the book reads "It is a strange thing, that in sea voyages, where there is nothing to be seen but sky and sea, men should make diaries; but in land travel, wherein so much is to be observed, for the most part they omit it; as if chance were fitter to be registered than observation; let diaries therefore be brought in use. - Lord Bacon"

(enkele exemplaren licht (water)vlekkig, enkele ietwat los in band) Na 1828: per deel 1 gedicht op uitvouwblad; 1831-34: 1 gevouwen blad met: gedicht in facsimile. Prijsboekjes: "Hulde aan J.M. Patrone" (=bekroond lid, secretaris) op 15 van 16 voorplatten, en eenmaal "Hulde aan het genootschap tot nut der jeugd te Antwerpen V.W." In tegenstelling tot de normale uitgaven in bedrukte papieren omslagen zijn deze prijsboekjes gebonden in leer, allen in dezelfde stijl doch (licht) van elkaar verschillend; 7 van 16 exemplaren met bindersaanduiding: [hofboekbinder] A[braham] van Rossum. Zie Storm van Leeuwen, Vorstelijke Boekbanden,12 (e.v.): "De belangrijkste Amsterdamse boekbinder uit de vroege negentiende eeuw was zeker Abraham van Rossum." KVNM 48.1,51-69: "Op 29 september 1806 kwam een aantal vrienden gewoontegetrouw bijeen in een cafe op het Leidseplein in Amsterdam. Die dag werd tijdens het gesprek het voorstel geopperd om [.] zelf een genootschap op te richten. Het doel zou moeten zijn 'Deugd te beoefenen, Menschlievendheid aan te kweeken, en Kunsten en Wetenschappen te bevorderen.' [.] De werkzaamheden zouden bestaan uit het beantwoorden van zelf opgegeven prijsvragen in de dicht- en taalkunde (dat wil zeggen het schrijven van gedichten en liedteksten) en het voorlezen van nuttige werken. Een jaar later waren de prijsvragen niet langer tot de taalkunde beperkt, maar strekten zij zich ook uit tot de tekenkunde. [.] Deze uitbreiding leidde in 1809 tot een officiele verdeling van het genootschap in drie departementen, gewijd aan respectievelijk taal- en dichtkunde, tekenkunde en muziek." Haar beslotenheid was groot, dit is opmerkelijk aangezien zij professionele musici onder haar (honoraire) leden telde, zoals Carolus Antonius (Antoine) Fodor, Jacob Rauscher en Jan George Bertelman. v.d.Berg,1986,12-45 :"Eenmaal per jaar wordt tussen de gouden prijswinnaars nog weer een superprijs uitgeloofd. Ter beoordeling daarvan werden buitengewoon honoraire leden, waartoe onder anderen Tollens en Kinker behoorden, gemobiliseerd. [.] Men zou nog kunnen denken, dat de Maatschappij toch de publiciteit zoekt op grond van de uitgave van een jaarlijks zakboekje vanaf 1818, maar dit in eigen beheer uitgegeven almanak-achtige periodiekje staat boordevol genootschapszaken en circuleert alleen in de eigen kring. Het is duidelijk, dat dit genootschap de handen vol heeft aan eigen oefening en geen behoefte heeft aan vertoon naar buiten."

        OPINION OF THE SUPERIOR COURT OF THE STATE OF NEW-HAMPSHIRE, IN THE CASE OF THE TRUSTEES OF DARTMOUTH COLLEGE, VERSUS WILLIAM H. WOODWARD, ESQ. PRONOUNCED AT PLYMOUTH, IN THE COUNTY OF GRAFTON, AT THE NOVEMBER TERM, 1817. PRESENT, HON. WILLIAM M. RICHARDSON, CHIEF-JUSTICE. HON. SAMUEL BELL, HON. LEVI WOODBURY, JUSTICES.

      Concord:: Printed by Isaac Hill,. 1818. 27, [1 blank] pp. Disbound, starting to loosen, else Very Good. The lower court opinion in the famous Dartmouth College Case, brought because the anti-Federalist legislature of New Hampshire had abolished Dartmouth's charter and turned it into a state university. Webster was not original counsel in the Superior Court, but delivered Dartmouth's summation at the close of trial. No record of his speech evidently exists, "but it was said that his emotional peroration 'left the whole courtroom in tears.'" Peterson, The Great Triumvirate 99. Nevertheless, the Court found against Dartmouth; Webster took the case to the Supreme Court for a fee. There, Webster's claim-- that the charter was a contract whose obligations the legislature could not constitutionally impair-- succeeded, but it was not original: able but losing counsel had made it in the lower court.

        THE WORKS OF CHARLES LAMB

      London: Printed for C. and J. Ollier, 1818. This is an agreeably bound set of the letters, essays, and poetry by "the prince of English essayists." According to Day, Lamb contributed to the essay form by concentrating on feeling, rather than thought, by projecting a fuller sense of self into the work, and by imbuing his text with a poetic or lyrical quality. Lamb was also an accomplished poet, writing in both rhyming and blank verse, as well as a friend to many of the leading literary figures of the Romantic period. His correspondents include Wordsworth, Southey, and Coleridge, whom he had known since his youth and to whom this work is dedicated. Lamb's letters, by turns witty and meditative, reveal a life of intense reading and writing at a time when British literature was undergoing a radical transformation. Charles Lamb (1775-1834) was educated at Christ's Hospital and at 17 joined the East India House, where he worked from 1792-1825. In 1796, Lamb's sister Mary stabbed and killed their mother with scissors in a fit of insanity. Charles took on her care as well as serving as sole support for a dying aunt and a prematurely senile father. For the two years preceding this catastrophe, Lamb himself had experienced a period of derangement in his early twenties that haunted him the rest of his life. Nonetheless, Lamb and his sister were devoted to one another and lived long and productive lives, publishing several extremely popular tales together.. 175 x 107 mm. (6 7/8 x 4 1/4"). Two volumes. Attractive navy blue crushed morocco, gilt, by Riviere & Son (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with French fillet border, raised bands, spines richly gilt in compartments with floral sprig centerpiece surrounded by a lozenge of small tools and floral cornerpieces, turn-ins with gilt filigree roll, purple glazed endpapers, top edges gilt. Front flyleaves with engraved armorial bookplate of John Whipple Frothingham. Occasional browning or minor foxing, otherwise a fine copy, clean and fresh internally, and in a lustrous, scarcely worn binding.

At Geneva And Berne There Are Four Hundred Surveillans. If You Offend Them Only By The Manner In Which Your Cravat Is Tied, You Immediately Become An Object Of Their Persecution." Further Observations Made The Likelihood Of A Further English Translation Small Indeed: "Nothing Can Equal My Admiration Of The English Legislature, Unless It Be The Repulsion I Feel From English Society. They Are The Most Unsocial Of Beings; Perhaps For That Reason The Least Happy. To Be Held In Consideration By An Englishman, The Most Perfect Air Of Coldness Must Be Assumed."
