        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.”

        Nouveau système de minéralogie traduit du suédois sous les yeux de l'auteur ...

      Paris, Méquignon-Marvis, 1819, in 8°, de VI-315pp., demi-veau blond époque, dos lisse orné, p. de t. bleue, bel exemplaire. Edition originale française corrigée par Berzélius. Ouvrage fondamental dans lequel il expose sa nouvelle méthode de classification des minéraux d'après leur composition chimique plutôt que sur leurs qualités physiques. En cela il s'opposera à Haüy. Mitscherlich reconnaîtra que la composition chimique reste un élément déterminant et James Dwight Dana reprendra en 1837 les classifications de Berzélius. 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.

        A Voyage of Discovery Made Under the Orders of the Admiralty, in His Majesty's Ships Isabella and Alexander, for the Purpose of Exploring Baffin's Bay, and Inquiring into the Probability of a North-West Passage.

      John Murray, London 1819 - On the whole very clean and well preserved. A lovely, collectable condition copy of this illusive first edition. All plates and fold out charts and maps present.Errata slip present. Some quite stunning fold out colour illustrations which must have been hand coloured. There is a little browning/foxing to some of the plates and pages but really this is not at all severe. There is evidence of a name inscription which has been erased from the front end paper, causing the marbling to be rubbed off in that small area. The front board is present but detached and the head of the spine has been pulled away resulting in loss. The book would benefit from restoration work/rebinding. The boards appear to be the original marbled with quarter leather spine and corner tips. The spine title block is missing but the titles are still evident underneath where this would have been. Photos on request. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Die Welt als Wille und Vorstellung.

      Leipzig: F. A. Brockhaus,, 1819. Octavo (199 x 121 mm). Contemporary green half cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, marbled paper boards. Folding table tipped in opposite page 73 and several diagrams in text. Faint trace of library stamp to title, occasional pencil annotations throughout. Extremities lightly worn, spine ends and corners bruised with some minor rubbing and discolouration to spine, upper edge of text block a little crushed, hinges strengthened with cloth tape; first two leaves professionally restored in the gutter, and a few discreet marginal repairs throughout, contents browned with some spotting and nicks to edges, a couple of tears to margins not affecting text such as those to leaf 12.4, overall a very good copy. First edition of Schopenhauer's principal work, The World as Will and Idea, in which he formulates a pessimistic philosophy, that had the greatest influence on modern thinking. This is one of 750 copies printed; as the book had little initial impact, very few copies still exist. "The notions which had been forming in his mind about man's nature and destiny now found expression, and the conviction that scientific explanation could never do more than systematize and classify the appearances which we call reality led him to assert that it is the will and the passions which are the real determinants of all intellectual life. He was studied by Wagner and Nietzsche, both of whom paid tribute to the influence he had on them; and Herbert Spencer did much to spread the knowledge of his theories" (PMM).

        Kihoki [trans.: Airgun Design]

      One woodcut illus. of the length of the entire airgun depicted on six pp., another woodcut illus. on two pages, & 7 full-page woodcut illus. 14 folding leaves. 8vo, orig. wrappers (backed in paper, minor marginal worming). Shiga Prefecture ("Goshu"): [Privately Printed by the Author], Preface dated 1819. First edition of a very rare book; WorldCat lists only the 1982 reprint. Kunitomo (1778-1840), a native of the gun-making town of Kunitomo in Shiga Prefecture, was an inventor and scientist of great interest. Having lived in Edo for a period of time, he became familiar with Dutch scientific instruments including telescopes. He constructed Japan's first reflecting telescope in 1831 which had a magnification of 60 and was superior to any brought in by the Dutch traders. This allowed Kunitomo to engage in sunspot observations and the study of the topography of the moon. In 1814, following his town's tradition of gun smithing, Kunitomo began to develop the first Japanese airgun, knowledge of which came from the Dutch in Dejima. In 1818, he was lent to make repairs to a European airgun (made by Scheiffel) which the Dutch traders had given the shogun. In the following year, Kunitomo began to manufacture his own airguns (several of which still exist). The gun was able to fire twenty rounds in a relatively short period of time. The text provides an account of the Dutch airgun ("windroer" transliterated to "wuindoruuru"). Kunimoto describes the theory behind the gun, its parts, how to create air pressure by a pumping action, etc. The gun was lubricated with the oil from camellia seeds. The woodcut which extends over six pages depicts the entire length of the gun. The seven full-page woodcuts show various parts of the gun, and the final two-page woodcut depicts a rifleman showing how to hold, pump, and fire the gun. &#10087; Nakayama, A History of Japanese Astronomy, p. 197-(for Kunimoto's astronomical achievements).

        Journal of a Route Across India, Through Egypt, to England. In the Latter End of the Year 1817, and the Beginning of 1818.

      London: John Murray, 1819 - 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. 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. 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. 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&#150;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 &#151; A Gorkah Soldier; The Dromedary and Rocket Corps; Irregular Cavalry, Bengal Army; & Seapoys of the Bombay, Bengal and Madras Armies &#151; which are among the most authentic images of the army of the HEIC.

        Report of the Case of the Trustees of Dartmouth College Against William H. Woodward

      Published by John W. Foster, Portsmouth NH 1819 - Portsmouth NH: Published by John W. Foster, 1819. First edition, in original boards, of one of the most significant and influential of the early cases appearing before the Supreme Court, a landmark decision dealing with the application of the Contract Clause of the United States Constitution to private corporations. The case arose when the president of Dartmouth College was deposed by its trustees, leading to the New Hampshire legislature attempting to force the college to become a public institution and thereby place the ability to appoint trustees in the hands of the governor of New Hampshire. The Supreme Court upheld the sanctity of the original charter of the college, which pre-dated the creation of the State. Dartmouth College was represented by one of its most famous alumni, the orator and politician Daniel Webster. The ruling for the trustees was important for establishing an assurance for all investors in American corporate enterprise that the terms by which they had committed their capital could not be summarily altered by a state, a significant step on encouraging the expansion of American business. Beautifully housed in a custom clamshell box of plum morocco over matching cloth. Seldom seen in the original boards. Some light wear and a few stains to covers; some repairs to spine; light dampstain to last forty or so pages, light foxing to endpapers and title page; an exceptional copy in the original boards, untrimmed and partially unopened, rare thus.

Dritte Ausgabe dieses Berichts über die Reise der William Pitt Earl Amherst of Arracan mit den Schiffen Alceste (Kapitän Murray Maxwell) und Lyra (Kapitän Basil Hall) nach China (Hinreise über das Kap der Guten Hoffnung und Java, danach Expeditionen in China und Korea und die Rückreise über die Philippinen und Indonesien wieder zürück). - Abbey Travel 559: "An account of a voyage undertaken whilst Lord Amherst`s embassy was in China and Lord Amherst was onboard. It was on this voyage that the people of Luchu [Ryukyu i.e. Okinawa] were first visited by Europeans. On the return journey the ship called at Rio de Janeiro, Cape of Good Hope, Manila and Java before striking a submergedr ock, and was shipwrecked. A vivid primary account of the wreck is given". - Der Autor John McLeod war als Chirurg auf der unter dem Kommando von Kapitän Murray Maxwell segelten Fregatte "Alceste" unterwegs. "Die wissenschaftliche Bedeutung der Amherstschen Gesandschaft liegt in den von den Schiffen `Alceste` und `Lyra` ausgeführten Entdeckungsfahrten im Gelben Meer, dessen N- und O-Küsten der europäischen Kartographie noch unbekannt waren. . Kapitän Maxwell teilte die Geschwader nachdem er die Gesandschaft am Peiho an Land gesetzt hatte. Er selbst drang mit der `Alceste` in den Golf von Liau-tung ein; er ging an dessen W-Seite hinauf bis zum Beginn der Chinesischen Mauer, bei Schan-hai-zwan. Von hier steuerte er zur Liau-tung Halbinsel hinüber, wo er an einer geräumigen Bucht Anker warf, die er `Ross`s Bay` benannte . Wahrscheinlich ist sie identisch mit der Hu-lu-shan-Bay. Nach dessen eigentümlicher Form benannte Maxwell das S-Ende der Liau-tung-Halbinsel `Regent`s Sword`, das südlichste Kap der Halbinsel erhielt den Namen `Charlotte`s Point`, nach der Mutter des Regenten, des späteren Königs George IV. Eine Inselgruppe im S des Kaps wurde `Company`s Group` benannt, der dazwischenliegende Kanal `Saint George`s Channel`. . Mit der Fahrt der `Alceste` und `Lyra`, die die bis dahin unbekannte W-Seite Koreas erschloß, war die Entdeckung jener Halbinsel zu einem ersten Abschluß gebracht worden . Auf der Rückfahrt, die über die Lutschu-Inseln führte, erlitt die `Alceste` Schiffbruch" (Henze I, 65 ff). - Unbeschnitten. Titel mit hs. Namen. Etw. gebräunt.

Also depicted in some detail are St. James's Palace, Carlton House (with a splendid series of now-vanished interiors created for the Prince Regent by Holland with Wyatt and Nash as architects), Kensington Palace, Hampton Court, Buckingham House (including a view of the east front as it was a century before Aston Webb's drastic remodelling carried out in 1913), and Frogmore as remodeled by Wyatt.The plates are beautifully printed colour aquatints with intricate hand colouring by accomplished colourists of the day. Published in both regular and large paper (as here) issues, the work was published at 24 and 36 guineas, respectively. Besides being printed on larger, superior paper, the hand colouring on the large paper issue is more finely accomplished.Abbey Scenery 396/397;Martin-Hardie, pp. 91; Prideaux, p. 348; Tooley 389.

        Deux lettres à Mylord comte d'Aberdeen, sur l'authenticité des inscriptions de Fourmont.

      Paris, Imprimerie Royale, De Bure frères 1819 - in-4, [4]-139 pp., avec 4 planches hors-texte, cartonnage Bradel de papier turquoise, dos lisse orné de filets dorés (reliure de l'époque). Un coin abîmé. Bon exemplaire. En 1728, l'orientaliste Michel Fourmont (1690-1746), frère d'Etienne Fourmont, avait été envoyé avec l'abbé Sevin rechercher des livres et des manuscrits orientaux pour la Bibliothèque du Roi. Il se rendit à cet effet à Constantinople, mais attendit le départ de Sevin pour effectuer de son propre chef un voyage dans les Cyclades et le Péloponnèse en quête d'inscriptions et de médailles ; il était accompagné de son neveu Claude. Il rapporta de Sparte quelques relevés d'inscriptions et de bas-reliefs, qui dès le départ, furent considérés comme des faux par les érudits occidentaux. Au XIXe siècle, comme on le voit, la querelle n'était pas terminée. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
