        The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent.

      Printed by C. S. Van Winkle. Second editions throughout, with the first part dated 1819 and parts 2-7 dated 1820.. Some light to moderate foxing and stains in the text; a very good, unsophisticated copy.. Cf. BAL 10106; Wright I, 1431. 7 parts bound in one volume, small 4to, contemporary tree-calf skillfully rebacked, gilt decorated and lettered spine. Bound without the original wrappers, but the seven title-pages are present. An iconic work of American literature. With the first appearance of "Rip Van Winkle," "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," and Irving's charming tales of England, The Sketch Book brought critical acclaim and recognition to American literature for the first time. Part No. 1 was published in March, 1819, and was succeeded by six more parts, for a total of thirty-one tales, that concluded in August, 1820. The enormous popularity of The Sketch Book gave rise to immediate and constant reprintings of the parts issues, with one part being dated as late as 1823. In 1824 the parts ceased when the publisher issued the “Fourth Edition” in book form only, in two volumes. The publication of The Sketch Book was complicated because Irving never personally saw the manuscript installments through the press. They were sent from England, where he was living at the time, to his brother, Ebeneezer, and his friend, Henry Brevoort, in New York. They acted as his agents and unofficial editors in seeing the parts through the press of Cornelius S. Van Winkle, a book and job printer on Greenwich Street. Adding to the complication was the fact that Irving's holograph was changeling to correctly transcribe. As a consequence the first editions of the parts contained numerous typographical errors, which were corrected at Irving's insistence after he reviewed the printed versions as they were sent to him, and thus subsequent printings were made from revised and sometimes reset plates.

        Archive - Lincolnshire Spirit Merchant and Brewer - Trade Dispute with London Distillers

      London, 1819. Gosberton, London, 1819-1834. Archive of 27 manuscript documents of a Lincolnshire spirits merchant Thomas Doubleday, pertaining to his disputes over spirits purchased from London distillers mainly being claims of inferior quality; and, inversely, pertaining to inspections of Doubleday's storehouse by the Surveying Office and an enquiry by the Excise Office with undertones of possible smuggling. Includes 16 letters, 1 purchase invoice, 8 sales receipts, all in manuscript, and 1 printed court summons completed in manuscript, and 1 excise office permit to receive foreign brandy also completed in manuscript. Documents range in size and length. These are original signed letters received by Doubleday, and retained manuscript copies of his own correspondence and sales slips. Some minor creasing, otherwise the lot in very good condition. Mr. Thomas Doubleday of Gosberton, Spalding, Lincolnshire, was a dike-reeve by trade, who became a merchant of rum, brandy, gin and wine, as well as a brewer. He is sometimes addressed as "Spirits Merchant" and sometimes as "Brewer." Letters are posted to him at the Gosberton Brewery. [There were other brewers in the Doubleday family of Gosberton.] In this era, England's liquor trade was saturated by mendacious sorts of men and tainted with fraud and corruption. Smuggling, unlicenced distilling, misrepresenting quality, and reducing alcohol volume was rampant, thus lending equal opportunity for buyers to create false claims even against reputable distillers and dealers. It is impossible to ascertain truth versus exploitation in these transactions, however this lot of documents surely illuminates deceit and unscrupulous practices from one or all parties. It also affirms the importance of some changes that had recently been made to alcohol legislation in England. [Primarily designed to monitor distillers and merchants, and secondly to curtail overall consumption of spirits, an Act was passed in 1825. It aimed specifically to reduce smuggling, to strengthen controls on legitimate distilling. The Act banned distillers from retailing, outlawed distillation without a licence, banned distillations altogether on Sundays, instituted strict and extensive powers for oficers of the excise to effect inspection and seizure, and instituted retail licences. It also banned the sale or the consumption of spirits in prisons and workhouses.] The majority of the present documents are from the years 1826 to 1830 and consist of correspondence between the litigous merchant and the distillers from whom he purchased spirits, one or possibly both being unscrupulous in the transactions. However, the meddlesome presence and ironhanded excise officers, restless and keen to enforce legislation upon makers and merchants of spirits, beer and wine, also make an appearance in this lot. Collectively, these papers illustrate the Machiavellian history of the liquor trade some two hundred years ago. On 28 June 1826 an official excise summons demands a court appearance by Mr. Doubleday who is being accused in a matter of possessing "excess stock not duly accounted for" - being five gallons of English-made liquor. The document suggests theft, illegal importation, or perhaps evasion of taxes and duty. The liquor was seized the same day, prior to any investigation. In March 1831, Thomas Doubleday's shop was again investigated by the Surveying Office, and according to a manuscript letter by John Nutting of the excise office, the latter resulted in "... an unusual and illegal decrease in your stock of foreign brandy... reported to have been stolen". The excise officer requested all particulars of the purported theft, surely suspecting the liqueur had been smuggled out to evade duty fees. Doubleday responds at once, with much detail of the missing liqueur, as well as witnesses and even potential "suspicious character" to pursue. A permit dated 28 March 1830, granting one man to receive casks of foreign brandy, being two gallons, specifically from Doubleday's stock, and charging duties for "sending out one hour" and "receiving one day" suggests diligent, if not rigorous monitoring of all liquor being transported between ports and cities. Several manuscript letters were exchanged over the years between the proprietors of Eagle and Back distillery in Cripplegate Ward, London, and Mr. Thomas Doubleday, a wine and spirits merchant from Lincolnshire. Doubleday frequently disputed the quality of the liquors and even the quantity received, forming a rather curious and entertaining account of the liquor trade in early nineteenth century London. Evidently Doubleday fancied himself a better distiller, or at least a spirits connoisseur, and yet he continued to purchase from Eagle and Back. As a regular client he received written notices of price changes from the company, 'strong gin' being increased in 1826 and again in 1831. A letter/invoice dated 27 November 1826, penned on Eagle and Back stationery, outlines an order for gin, Jamaican rum, and casks, which were shipped to the port town of Boston in Lincolnshire for Doubleday. The earliest letter from John Back of the distillery, postmarked and received 7 July 1829, is a response to what appears to have been Doubleday's first complaint. His issues are the quality (strength) of a brandy and the price of gin. The writer is surprised at the notion of an unhappy customer and attempts to clarify any discrepancies or concern with much detail, and some sarcasm. Excerpt: "... the Brandy is the growth of the same maker in Cognac as your last Hogshead, which you approved... If we had wished to spoil the flavour we should have used some the Godfrey Fo. But as the Excise Commissioners have an unfortunate way of putting a heavy fine of but a few hundred pounds upon the back of a man who will infringe their laws, we are not mad enough yet to mix BB with Foreya..." On 4 April 1830 Doubleday complains of a tardy shipment, "The Boston waggoner tells my men who has met waggon thru different nights after midnight at the Isle-bar, that the puncheons certainly has not yet arrived at Peterboro [Peterborough in Cambridgeshire] ..." A response from Eagle & Back distillers written 13 April 1830 confronts the chronic complainer, "... it is not at all probably that they would make a mistake of 4 Gallons in 88 Gallons... There is certainly something suspicious in your spirits always coming deficient and if that is the case, it must be done in the hands of the Carrier..." A letter written in 1831 reveals nineteenth century liquor transport laws, as well as another questionable move attempted by Doubleday. Mr. Eagle writes to Doubleday, "... owing to the permit for the hogshead of port wine being a dock permit the name cannot be altered... have therefore sent a petition with the Board of Excise asking them to allow the same to be taken into the stock of Mr. Bennett..." Eagle and Back distillery was situated on Red Cross Street, Cripplegate Ward, London, it's owners being Messrs Thomas Eagle and John Back, who let the distillery premises and two messuages (nos 6 and 7) from a Lady-day beginning in 1826 for a term of 21 years, and whose rent was payable to the church. Half of their rent was paid to the churchwardens of the parish of St. Luke, which is connected to the parish of Cripplegate. The remaining half was payable as a contribution to the general charity fund of St. Giles parish. In the year 1830 Eagle and Back made substantial repairs and renovations to the premises as had been agreed in the lease agreement. According to the letterhead on which one letter is penned in 1826, this enterprise was the "Successor of Thomas Wyatt & Son." [In 1821, a distiller on 9 Red Cross Street named John Wyatt, possibly brother and business partner to Thomas Wyatt, died at 32 years of age, documented in the Gentleman's Magazine Vol 91.] In 1824 Thomas Eagle, one of the proprietors, inherited his brother's estate. He is listed in the register of the Licensed Victuallers Association in 1833. Along the same lines, Thomas Doubleday disputes relentlessly an over-shipment of spirits and related charges, this time with John Wood, a foreign wine & brandy merchant operating at Devonshire Street in Bishopsgate, London. As well as an original receipt for 1/4 pipe (39 gallons) of Superior Old Brandy for £31 made in October 1829, this transaction resulted in six rancorous letters between the parties. Doubleday refused to pay the invoice and further demanding credit for postage for the correspondence, while Wood repeatedly threatened legal action against him, the final letter being dated exactly six months after the invoice date, and the mater still not resolved. The lot further contains Doubleday's own copy of a letter he sent to a Mr. C. Shannon in December 1831, again disputing the alcohol proof of a bottle of rum purchased from him. Excerpt: "... I put the rum into my 2 gall measure, in the presence of our officer, when I found more than a quart deficient of measure & the strength 16.6/up[?] much lower than... My son John tells me he saw you put it up to file the measure properly therefore it cannot be Imperial. The rum is a good quality but you have reduced it too low for your own safety... it will be seizable... I should advise you to get your measure examined... & to attend to the strength of your whole stock of spirits to prevent your getting into trouble in future. As for the present mistake we can easy make right." The eights sales receipts in this archive record Doubleday's transactions, selling liquor to various customers between the years 1819 and 1834. Cripplegate was a gate in the London Wall and a name for the region of the City of London outside the gate. The area was almost entirely destroyed in the Blitz of World War II and today it is the site of the Barbican Estate and Barbican Centre. A map of St. Giles Cripplegate made in 1755 and held at the British Library, shows "Two Brewers Yard" as well as a vineyard, indicating a long history of producing wine and spirits in the district. . Very Good.

        Report of the Case of the Trustees of Dartmouth College Against

      1819. First Report of the Landmark Dartmouth College Case [Trial]. [Dartmouth College Case]. Farrar, Timothy [1788-1874], Reporter. Report of the Case of the Trustees of Dartmouth College Against William H. Woodward. Argued and Determined in the Superior Court of Judicature of the State of New-Hampshire, November 1817. And on Error in the Supreme Court of the United States, February 1819. Portsmouth: Published by John W. Forster, And West, Richardson, And Lord, Boston, [1819]. [iv], 406 pp. Octavo (9" x 5"). Original publisher boards, rebacked with replica of spine with printed paper title label, front hinge mended, front free endpaper re-hinged, untrimmed edges, several signatures unopened. A few tiny stains to boards, light fading to edges, corners bumped and worn. Some toning to text, occasional light foxing, minor tears to margins of a few leaves. * First published report. This is probably the most important American case concerning the contract right of corporations. The New Hampshire legislature passed a bill in 1816 that revoked Dartmouth College's original charter and converted the college from a private to a state institution. The college challenged the constitutionality of this act in the state Supreme Court without success, but the U.S. Supreme Court reversed the state's decision in a landmark opinion based on the contract clause of the Constitution. This decision represented "an assurance for all investors in American corporate enterprises that the terms upon which they had committed their capital could not be unilaterally altered by a state. At a time when corporations were first being widely used, it thus encouraged the expansion of American business enterprise. The decision vested the Corporation with indestructible contract rights, even against its creator" (Schwartz, 86, 111). "By construing the contract clause as a means of protecting corporate charters from state interventions, Marshall derived a significant limitation on state authority. As a result, various forms of private economic and social activity would enjoy security from state regulatory policy. Marshall thus encouraged, through constitutional sanction, the emergence of the relatively unregulated private, autonomous economic actor as the major participant in a liberal political economy that served the commonwealth by promoting enlightened

        LE PETIT MODISTE FRANÇAIS, Dédié Aux Dames.

      Paris: Le Fuel, 1819. Le Fuel,: Paris:, 1819. Paris: Le Fuel, 1819. Le Petit Modiste Français was an almanac intended by its publishers to become "le livre classique des boudoirs, et à se trouver sur toutes les toilettes." Poetry, allegory and advice on everything from fashionable dress and accessories to proper etiquette is offered here, along with 12 hand-coloured plates, one per month, showing a fashionably dressed woman either engaged in or, more often, in the foreground of some seasonal activity. (June shows a hot-air balloon aloft behind the lady). Our particular copy here has survived in a most detailed and decorative paper covered binding and slipcase, the first being quite neo-classical in ornament and the latter more romantic. Colas describes an issue of 1822 and notes that Grand Carteret cites examples from 1818, 1819 and 1820. There are 19 pages of addresses of merchants such as modistes, florists, hair dressers, cloth merchants, perfumers, shoemakers, etc, as well as announcements of where to find the latest creams, rouges, aromatic compounds, etc. Rare; OCLC lists only one undated copy from this series in any North American library and we have been unable to locate any copies of the present edition outside of France. Colas 2333; Grand Carteret 1843; 24mo (11.4 x 7.5 cm); (iv) + 211 + (1) pp. + 13 hand-colored plates including decorative title page. Bound in contemporary highly decorative color printed paper with six panels of arabesque designs on spine; upper and lower covers printed in shades of red, green, blue, black and yellow, with images of cherubs or putti in corners ; vignette of small children in a draped woodland setting within a lozenge shaped center panel; small seasonal "friezes" as accents on all sides; corners and sides ruled in gold with just slight age wear; a.e.g.; in highly decorative slipcase printed in similar colours with a scene of a visit by two young ladies to a rocky island hermitage printed on upper and lower covers, and with small rusticated and garden views (a small bridge with overhanging willow and an avenue of trees) in small compartments on the spine; slipcase shows some very moderate wear and very light soiling.

      Mercure de France - Ces deux conférences de John Ruskin (1819-1900) Sésame et Les Lys, furent publiées en 1865 et Marcel Proust s’attela à leur traduction en 1904, peu après la parution de La Bible d’Amiens. Dans sa préface, « Sur la lecture », Proust évoque tout d’abord ses souvenirs d’enfance liés à ses lectures, avant de se faire plus critique et de se démarquer de Ruskin, lui portant régulièrement dans ses notes de bas de page, la contradiction et élaborant au long de sa réflexion sa conception de l’écriture. « Sésame et les lys est à bien des égards le sésame de La Recherche » Antoine Compagnon.

        Defensa guadalupana ... contra la disertacion de D. Juan Bautista Muñoz.

      Méjico: Impr. de Alejandro Valdes Small 4to. [5] ff., 55, [1 (blank)] pp.. 1819 Juan Bautista Muñoz (1745–99, with death by apoplexy) was Charles III's official chronicler of New World. In a posthumously published article — "Memoria sobre las apariciones y el culto de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe en México . . . ", Memorias de la Real Academia de la Historia, V (1817), 204–24 — Muñoz => denied the apparition of the Virgin of Guadalupe, calling it merely the illusion of a "mere Indian." The cult of the Virgin of Guadalupe was so important to Mexicans of all classes and political persuasions that a spirited defense was assured; and Gómez Marín, a distinguished poet, naturalist, and religious writer, provides one here. Removed from a nonce volume. Title-leaf soiled and slightly foxed; upper inner corner of all leaves rodent gnawed with small loss of paper, not touching text. Two small pin-type wormholes penetrating from back toward front of volume, stopping on p. 13; some bug-spotting on last blank leaf. One leaf unaccountably browned. Not a fine copy, certainly; definitely, one priced for its faults.

        Bingham I, Hiram 1841 AQS

      No Binding. Good. Leader of the first group of Protestant missionaries to introduce Christianity to the Hawaiian Islands. He attended Middlebury College and the Andover Theological Seminary. On October 23, 1819 he was sent from Boston to lead a mission by the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions. Bingham and his wife Sybil arrived first on the Island of Hawaii in 1820, and then sailed on to Honolulu. In 1823, Queen Ka'ahumanu and 6 high chiefs requested baptism. Soon after, the government banned prostitution and drunkenness, which resulted in the shipping industry and the foreign community resenting Bingham's impact. Bingham was involved in the creation of the spelling system for the Hawaiian language and also translated some books of the Bible in Hawaiian. He designed the Kawaiaha'o Church in Honolulu on Oahu., constructed between 1836 and 1842 in the New England style of the Hawaiian missionaries, one of the oldest standing Christian places of worship in Hawaii.

        President James Monroe signs a scathing letter protecting his land investments

      Washington, DC, March 23, 1819. 8" x 9.75". "Autograph Letter Signed ""James Monroe"" as President, 2 pages, 8"" x 9.75"", front and verso. Washington, March 23, 1819. With inlaid blank integral leaf addressed on verso by Monroe to ""Thomas Swann Esqr. / Alexandria."" Minor flaws. Housed in a dark blue morocco folding protective case with a portrait. Fine condition.In full, ""I forgot to mention to you the case of Mr. Swart yesterday, who has admitted, in some degree, that he must pay the balance due for the land at the death of Judge Jones, but has never paid a cent of it. Mr Benton will take your instructions in it. I am satisfied that the object of Swart is to evade the payments in hope of taking advantage of the act of limitation, or some other circumstance. He had no title from the old gentleman, & the young one could make none. Had he better be sued in Chancery,or by ejectment. The legal title was not in me, except by the old gentlemans will, which may have some weight in the decision. If you think proper to consider the subject, & want further information, & will be so good as to inform it to me, the delay will not be material to Mr. Benton, who will always be ready to follow your instructions.""I am aware that I am indebted to you, on acct of the estate & my own account, by your kind attention to my affrs. In Alexa. You never mentioned whether you were so fortunate as to collect some bonds given you by Col. Mercer. If you will be so kind as send me an account I will with great pleasure make sure an arrangement as will be satisfactory to you. With sincere regard, your friend, James Monroe""Judge Joseph Jones (1727-1805), was the brother of Monroe's mother, Elizabeth Jones Monroe (1730-1774). Monroe's father was Spence Monroe (1727-1774). Monroe and his siblings (each younger than James) became wards of their Uncle Joseph. Monroe's youngest sibling, Joseph Jones Monroe, was only 10 when his parents died. It was Judge Jones who enrolled James Monroe in William and Mary in 1774, becoming a mentor and adviser to the future President. Joseph Jones was a Member of the Continental Congress (1777, 1780-1783) and later served as a Judge of the Virginia General Court.In 1794, Monroe purchased the land on which Oak Hill was located jointly with his uncle. Monroe inherited all interests in this land when his uncle died in 1805 with no heirs. Jones' will indicated that Monroe held the land in a moiety share. Jones' son, Joseph Jones, Jr., had lived on the property until his death, predeceasing his father.In 1810, to pay off his debts to the United States Bank, James Monroe attempted to sell the Oak Hill plantation. A notice of land sale in 1810 described the property as follows: ""Loudoun Land … For sale on Thursday, the 21st of December next on the premisies, the tract of Land on which the late Judge Jones resided in Loudoun County with about 25 slaves, and the stock of Horses, Cattle, and Hogs, on the estate…"" Robert Swart was the farm manager at Oak Hill plantation. He owed James Monroe money for land he had purchased from the estate of Judge Jones. William Benton managed the plantation. Colonel of a Virginia Regiment in the Revolutionary War, John Francis Mercer (1759-1821) had been friends with Monroe since they were classmates at the College of William and Mary. Mercer had served in the Continental Congress (1783-1784), the U.S. Congress (1792-1794), and as Governor of Maryland (1801-1803). In January 1825, President Monroe appointed his lawyer, ""Thomas Swann, of the District of Columbia, to be Attorney of the United States for the District of Columbia.""Ex Pratt, Sigety Sold in 1989 for the lofty price of $2,200."

This is probably the most important American case concerning the contract right of corporations. The New Hampshire legislature passed a bill in 1816 that revoked Dartmouth College's original charter and converted the college from a private to a state institution. The college challenged the constitutionality of this act in the state Supreme Court without success, but the U.S. Supreme Court reversed the state's decision in a landmark opinion based on the contract clause of the Constitution. This decision represented "an assurance for all investors in American corporate enterprises that the terms upon which they had committed their capital could not be unilaterally altered by a state. At a time when corporations were first being widely used, it thus encouraged the expansion of American business enterprise. The decision vested the Corporation with indestructible contract rights. even against its creator" (Schwartz, 86, 111). "By construing the contract clause as a means of protecting corporate charters from state interventions, Marshall derived a significant limitation on state authority. As a result, various forms of private economic and social activity would enjoy security from state regulatory policy. Marshall thus encouraged, through constitutional sanction, the emergence of the relatively unregulated private, autonomous economic actor as the major participant in a liberal political economy that ser [Attributes: Hard Cover]
