        The Sham-Robbery, Committed by Elijah Putnam Goodridge on His Own.

      1819 - Fletcher Webster's Copy of an Account of One of His Father's Famous Cases [Trial]. Jackman, Joseph. Goodridge, Elijah Putnam [1787-1851], Defendant. The Sham-Robbery, Committed by Elijah Putnam Goodridge on His Own Person, In Newbury Near Essex Bridge, Dec. 19, 1816: With a History of His Journey to the Place Where he Robbed Himself: and His Trial with Mr. Ebenezer Pearson, Whom he Maliciously Arrested for Robbery: Also the Trial of Levi & Laban Kenniston. Concord, NH: Printed for the Author, 1819. 151, [1] pp. 12mo (6-3/4" x 4-1/4"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in plain wrappers, untrimmed edges. Light soiling and a few minor stains, wrappers worn, but secure. Light browning to text, light foxing in a few places, faint dampstaining to a few leaves, "Daniel Webster, Jr" in pencil to front endleaf and recto of rear wrapper, "Polly Webster" to rear free endpaper. $500. * Only edition. Full account of the several trials connected with this famous Massachusetts case, by one of the accused. Daniel Webster served as one of the defense attorneys shortly after his return to private practice following his two terms in Congress. The respected and well-connected Major Goodridge's accusation of robbery against the witless, low-life Kenniston brothers was supported by popular sentiment, until Webster began his defence, which meticulously unraveled the Major's story and succeeded in gaining the Kenniston's acquittal. The trial was an early landmark in Webster's legal career, and his final address to the jury, first printed here, is considered a classic of Webster's oratory. It was later anthologized. Daniel Fletcher Webster [1818-1862], known as Fletcher Webster, was Daniel Webster's eldest son. Chief Clerk of the U.S. State Department when his father was Secretary of State, he commanded the 12th Massachusetts Infantry during the Civil War. He was killed at the Second Battle of Bull Run. We are unsure of the identity of Polly Webster. Cohen, Bibliography of Early American Law 14017. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Travels in various countries of the East; more particularly Persia. Work wherein the author has described, as far as his own observations extended, the state of those countries in 1810, 1811, and 1812; and has endeavoured to illustrate many subjects of antiquarian research, history, geography, philology and miscellaneous literature, with extracts from rare and valuable Oriental manuscripts.

Sir William Ouseley (1769-1842) was secretary to his brother Sir Gore, who was sent to Persia as ambassador in 1810.

        Texas

      May 1, 1819. Rare Autograph Document Signed <I>“James Cummins,”</I> one page, 7.5” x 3”. [Arkansas County, Missouri Territory], May 1, 1819. In full <I>“Mrs Hemphill I autherize [sic] William Mills to set or subscribe my name to a Bond as security for James Bryan by an appication [sic] of himself being a stranger from your sevt.”</I> Uneven edges, worn at folds, uniformly foxed, tiny holes at folds. Fine condition. In 1811, John and Nancy Hemphill and their family moved from Georgia to the territory that became Arkansas. John established a salt making plant at what is now Arkadelphia, the earliest recorded factory in Arkansas. On May 1, 1819, after his death, his widow Nancy sold the salt works to James Cummins and James Bryan. They paid in cash and two notes. By this document, Cummins authorizes William Mills to sign his name to a bond as security for James Bryan. They failed to make payment on the first note for $1,075 and Mrs. Hemphill sued and obtained a judgment against them. She could not collect and the salt works reverted to the Hemphill estate. The family continued to operate the factory until the 1850s. It is possible that Mrs. Hemphill could not collect the money because Bryan died and Cummins left Missouri Territory for Mexico. James Bryan (1788-1822) had married Stephen F. Austin’s sister, Emily, in 1813. Moses Austin, Emily and Stephen’s father, died in 1821; James Bryan died a year later. Stephen left Missouri to continue his father’s colonization project in Texas. Emily stayed in Missouri and remarried. By 1822, James Cummins (c. 1773-1849) had settled in Texas on the east bank of the Colorado River, opposite the present town of Columbus. On August 23, 1823, he became the first alcalde (chief executive and judge) of the town of San Felipe de Austin, serving four years. Founded by Stephen F. Austin, it was the unofficial capital of his colony. On July 7, 1824, as one of Stephen F. Austin’s “Old Three Hundred,” he was granted six leagues and a labor of land in what is now Colorado and Austin counties. He received the land bonus because he was building a saw and grist mill. In December 1826, a small group of Texas colonists headed by brothers Haden and Benjamin Edwards formed their own government at Nacogdoches, proclaiming it the independent Republic of Fredonia. They made treaties with local Indians. When Mexican troops and members of Austin’s colony, including Cummins, reached Nacogdiches on January 31, 1827, they found that Fredonia had been dissolved; the rebels had fled to Louisiana. James Cummins took an active part in all Texian affairs. He served on committees and drafted petitions. Cummins had an extensive correspondence with Austin. His age prevented him from taking an active part in the Texas Revolution.

Qqs épid. sur les plats. Exemplaire grand de marges. Édition originale rare. Louis Bonaparte (roi de Hollande, comte de Saint-Leu), né à Ajaccio le 4 septembre 1778, fut élevé par son frère Napoléon dont il sera l'aide de camp en Italie et en Égypte. Il épousa Hortense de Beauharnais, qui lui donna trois enfants, dont le futur Napoléon III. Soumis aux ambitions de son frère qui lui écrira d'ailleurs : "Tout le monde sait que, hors de moi vous n'êtes rien !" - il se retirera dans une profonde misanthropie pour se consacrer aux lettres : on a de lui des Documents historiques sur le gouvernement de Hollande (1820), des Poésies (1828). Le présent titre constitue une version antérieure à celle diffusée sous le titre Essai sur la versification, par le comte de S. Leu, Rome et Florence, 1825-1826. Bel exemplaire. PROVENANCE : 1. Annotations postérieures à la mine de plomb sur les gardes : "Exemplaire du duc de Morante" et "Nota : Ouvrage composé & imprimé sous les yeux de Louis Napoléon (roi de Hollande). Cet ouvrage a été entièrement composé par lui, comme un vrai compositeur-typographe". - 2. Vignette ex-libris armoriée de cuir, contrecollée sur le contreplat supérieur : "J. Gomez de la Cortina et amicorum". Joachim Gomez de la Cortina, marquis ou duc de Morante (1808-1868), juriste espagnol né au Mexique, fut l'un des plus grands bibliophiles du XIXe siècle. Sa bibliothèque contenait environ 120.000 volumes (manuscrits, incunables, éditions des XVIe, XVIIe et XVIIIe siècle), la plupart reliés par les meilleurs praticiens de Paris et de Londres. Sa bibliothèque fut vendue à Drouot en 1872. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A Classical Tour through Italy and Sicily; tending to illustrate some districts, which have not been described by Mr. Eustace in his Classical Tour ... Second edition.

      London, J. Mawman,~ 1819. Two volumes, 8vo. Contemporary half-calf over marbled boards, rebacked with contrasting lettering-pieces to spines; pp. [iii]-xiii, [3], 395; [iv], 358, [6], folding map of Sicily, bound without half-titles; a little browned, otherwise a ery clean copy; ownership inscriptions of Jane Panton to titles. Richard Colt was a wealthy landowner and indefatigable Continental traveler, artist and antiquary. He had spent a good deal of the second half of the 1780s in Europe. 'After a brief return home Colt Hoare resumed his travels in 1788, 'no longer as a tourist but as a systematic antiquarian ... quitting ... the road for the path, the capital for the provinces' (R. C. Hoare, A Classical Tour through Italy and Sicily, 1819, x). He passed through the Netherlands, Germany, Venice, and Florence and finally settled in Siena. He sought to locate the major sites of the Etruscan civilization, then explored the Appian way with his sketchbook and returned south in order to visit the recently publicized Greek ruins at Paestum and those in Sicily. His romantic response to Italy was at once tempered and inflamed by a close interest in the classical authors, who turned his attraction into a passion; virtually nothing he saw was without resonance from a documented source' (ODNB).

        MEMOIRS OF THE LIFE AND CAMPAIGNS OF THE HON. NATHANIEL GREENE.

      Philadelphia. 1819. - xxiii,[1],452pp. plus portrait frontispiece and two folding facsimiles. Original green paper-covered boards, manuscript spine title. Spine chipped, extremities worn. Foxed, some leaves with faint dampstaining, 19th-century pencil inscriptions from "George W. Ford Baltimore Maryland" on front free endpaper, contemporary ink signature reading "E.A. Poe" on front pastedown. A good copy in original condition. Untrimmed. In a half morocco box. Edgar Allan Poe's copy of this engaging biography of Gen. Nathaniel Greene, with descriptions of many of the major battles of the Revolution, in which Greene played a significant role. Poe has signed the front pastedown, "E.A. Poe" in dark ink. During his professional life, as an editor and literary critic, Poe read widely. He reviewed literature and poetry, but also a wide range of historical nonfiction, such as INCIDENTS OF TRAVEL IN CENTRAL AMERICA, THE LIFE OF PETRARCH, MEMOIRS OF LUCIEN BONAPARTE, A LIFE OF WASHINGTON, and NOTICES OF THE WAR OF 1812, among many others. Caldwell's history of Nathaniel Greene would have fit nicely into Poe's voracious reading habits. The contemporary pencil notations from another Baltimore owner on the front free endpaper lends credence to Poe's ownership of the book. An excellent copy of Caldwell's work on Greene, with a fascinating American literary association. SABIN 9897. HOWES C21. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 47494.

        Andrew Jackson

      March 1, 1819. Manuscript Document, one page, 7” x 4”. [Melton’s Bluff, Alabama], March 1, 1819. Four-word docket by Jackson on verso. On laid paper. Fine condition.<br /><br />The document, in full, <I>“Recd of William W. Crawford five Dollars in full for my Servisses through the Sholes.”</I> Signed <I>“Robert Brashers.”</I> On verso, darkly penned by Andrew Jackson: <I>“No 4 - / Robt. Brashears / $5.”</I> The word <I>“Recpt”</I> is in another hand.<br /><br />Tensions in the South between the frontier settlers and the Creek Indians began in Revolutionary times. The Continental Congress received numerous reports on skirmishes between settlers and the Creeks. On August 30, 1813, Creek Indians massacred several hundred pioneers at Fort Mims, near Tensaw, in south Alabama, Mississippi Territory. Col. Andrew Jackson marched into Alabama with the Tennessee militiamen to fight what is now known as the Creek Indian War. The Cherokee joined in the fight. In October, Jackson dispatched Col. John Coffee, one of his wife’s nephews, and 800 men to hunt for a war party of Creeks. Once of Coffee’s men was Davy Crockett. They crossed the Tennessee River and traveled to the head of Elk River Shoals. In his report to Jackson, Coffee wrote, in part, “I proceeded to cross the river at the upper end of the shoals, all my efforts failed to produce a pilot. I took with me one of John Melton’s sons...” <br /><br />The Cherokees had established a large village at what became known as Melton’s Bluff. In 1780, John Melton, an Irishman, married a Cherokee woman and established a cotton plantation at Melton’s Bluff. As a result of the 1806 Cotton Gin Treaty, the Cherokee received one of Mississippi Territory’s first cotton gins and other concessions for ceding land north of the Tennessee River to the United States.<br /><br />On January 3, 1818, in a letter published in her ‘Letters from Alabama” (Washington: 1830), Anne Newport Royall wrote, “Of General Jackson, I shall say nothing till I see him, which pleasure I expect at Melton's Bluff, head of the Muscle Shoals, where I shall be in a few days...” On January 12th, she wrote “after chatting with Rhea, I learned he was from Rockbridge county, Virginia; had piloted boats through the Muscle Shoals, fifteen years; sometimes four at a time, at ten dollars each. He sails down one day, and walks back the next. He never met, in all that time, with an accident! There are several of these pilots...” Robert Brashers was one of those pilots.<br /><br />On January 14, 1818, Mrs. Royall told of her stay in Melton’s Bluff. In part, “Melton’s Bluff is a town, and takes its name from a person by the name of John Melton, a white man, deceased two years since, at an advanced age ... You have heard that this country consists of table and bottom land, also, of the Bluffs. These Bluffs happen where there is no bottom land, but the table land running up to the river forms a high precipice, called a Bluff. This is the case at Melton’s Bluff, the highest I have seen. Here is a very large plantation of cotton and maize, worked by about sixty slaves, and owned by General Jackson, who bought the interest of old Melton...” After John Melton died in 1816, Jackson purchased his plantation and his slaves from his son. Royal continued, “I can sit in my room and see the whole plantation; the boats gliding down the river...” <br /><br />Jackson used those boats to transport cotton and corn grown at his plantation which was located on the south bank of the Tennessee River near Florence, Alabama. Muscle Shoals was a hazard to navigation because of its sandbanks which required an experienced pilot; the river drops 140 feet in 30 miles. William W. Crawford was employed by Jackson to hire pilots to assist his boats through the Shoals. In 1821, the State of Tennessee passed an act “To authorize William Crawford and company of Franklin County, to build a Mill and other water works on the Tennessee River and for other purpose.” <br /> <br />

        Golda Meir

      , [January 18, 1935], 1819. [January 18, 1935]. Typed Manuscript Signed “Golda Meyerson” in Hebrew, three pages, 8” x 11”, separate sheets. [Eretz Yisroel, January 18, 1935]. On lightweight paper. Clip stains at upper right edge, light folds. Loose-leaf holes in blank right margin. Not translated. Fine condition.Headed “Reminder of the Increase in Tourism in the Agricultural Industry.” Summarizing this report, Meir first gives six reasons for the increase in tourism. She writes that the agricultural industry is not prepared or able to cope with the number of tourists which hinder farmers from producing the quantities needed. There is a need to have some regulations regarding the tourism industry and a need to accommodate the different groups that come to Eretz Yisroel. There is also a need to construct housing to accommodate tourists. The tourism industry will be successful if the tour guides, the Jewish Agency, and the agriculture industry are coordinated.On January 18, 1935, Meir wrote a letter to A. Kaplan at the Jewish Agency, enclosing this manuscript, telling him “I am sending a reminder on the problems we are having with the tourism industry in Eretz [Israel]. I wish that you review the policy and hope that we are able to build some housing…”In 1928, Golda Meir was elected secretary of Histadrut’s Council for Working Women, which required her to spend two years (1932-1934) as an emissary in the United States. In 1934, when Meir returned to Eretz Israel, she joined the Executive Committee of the Histadrut and moved up the ranks to become head of its Political Department. After Hitler came to power in Germany in 1933, many German Jews moved to Palestine; many came illegally on tourist visas. The number reached its height in 1935 but then declined as a result of immigration restrictions imposed by the British. In 1935, after Golda Meir wrote this manuscript, the Jewish Agency created the Tourist Development Association of Palestine. Posters encouraging travelers to "Visit Palestine” were soon seen on the walls of travel bureaus in Europe and the United States. In 1956, upon becoming Foreign Minister of Israel, Golda Meyerson Hebraized her name to “Golda Meir.”

Toutes les classifications ultérieures seront des classifications chimico-minéralogiques, encore utilisées de nos jours. ¶ DSB II p.90 "In accord with the interest that Swedish chemists had long shown in mineralogical studies, Berzelius had from time to time analyzed minerals that came into his hands. The discovery of cerium was the result of such an analysis. In 1812 he received a gift of a large number of minerals which he later decided to classify. The methods of mineral classification existing at that time were based on appearance and physical properties. These seemed highly unsystematic to Berzelius. He concluded from his analytical experience that a logical classification could be based only on chemical composition. In his original system, first published in 1814, he arranged the minerals in terms of their basic constituents, although he later revised this and placed chief emphasis on the acid component. Like most of Berzelius' innovations, his system of mineral classification was at first received with some hostility but this was gradually overcome. During his visit to Paris in 1818 he won the approval of Haüy, the leading minerologist of the day, whose own system was based on physical properties" - Ward & Carozzi 202 - Hoover 123 - Bolton 308.

        Journal of a Route Across India, Through Egypt, to England.

      London: John Murray,, 1819. In the Latter End of the Year 1817, and the Beginning of 1818. Quarto (270 x 203 mm). Recent half calf to style, Greek key roll gilt to spine forming compartments with floral centre-tools gilt, red morocco label, marbled sides and edges. Hand-coloured aquatint frontispiece and 8 similar plates, 2 uncoloured aquatints, one line-drawing, 7 maps and plans including a large folding map, battle-plans with the dispositions coloured. Light offsetting from plates, slightly stronger from folding map. An excellent copy with bright plates, complete with the half-title, errata leaf and directions to the binder. First and only edition, "very scarce, [copies] having been bought up by the noble author" (Willis and Sotheran, cited after Abbey). As his surname indicates, FitzClarence (1794-1842) was the eldest of the ten children born to the Duke of Clarence, later King William IV, by the actress Dorothy Jordan; hence he was nephew to the Prince Regent, to whom this volume is dedicated. After distinguishing himself in the Peninsular War, FitzClarence disturbed his royal relatives by agitating against his former commanding officer. He and his brother were consequently "sent in disgrace to join the 24th light dragoons in India, where the governor-general, Lord Moira, was urged to treat them 'with the strictest discipline, not to say severity' … FitzClarence was Moira's aide-de-camp and as such served in the campaigns of 1816–17 against the Marathas" (ODNB). After the death of his brother in September 1817 he was sent back to England bearing the dispatches of the peace treaty signed with Maharaja Sindhia, travelling via the overland route. "In the long section on Egypt he describes at length his contacts with Salt and Belzoni and gives an interesting account of his visits to the Pyramids with them" (Blackmer). The splendid illustrations after sketches by the author, include four "curious plates" of native troops in uniform — A Gorkah Soldier; The Dromedary and Rocket Corps; Irregular Cavalry, Bengal Army; & Seapoys of the Bombay, Bengal and Madras Armies — which are among the most authentic images of the army of the HEIC.
