        Together, three documents signed by Daniel Boone's sons: Manuscript Document, signed by Daniel M. Boone with two lines in his hand, 2 pp., 8vo, dated November 14, 1817 and July 5, 1819, being a document filed with the County of St. Charles listing a tally of debts for items purchased from Boone (his name appears as "Boon" within the document) accrued by Francis McDermed between June 1814 and March 1815, sworn to by Boone's clerk, John Lindsey, before Joseph Cotts, a lawyer. On the latter date, Boone acknowledges receipt of the payment in full from Hugh McDermed and signs the receipt; [and] Autograph Document, signed by Nathan Boone, 1 1/2 pages, written on a large scrap of paper, dated September 8, 1827, being a document filed with the St. Charles County probate court requesting the Mrs. Antoine Laclane and Frances Laclane, administrators of the estate of Antoine Laclane, pay an unspecified amount to Robert W. Wells as agent for Nathan Boone (his name appears as "Boon" at the top of the document); on verso,

      St. Charles County, Missouri Territory, july 5, 1819, september 8, 1827 and october 30, 1876. (BOONE, DANIEL) 1 vols., Various sizes. . Each document folded several times, very short minor tears or chipping mostly at folds, overall very good . Daniel Boone (1734-1820), born near Reading, Pennsylvania, is known as a great pioneer and Indian fighter. His family left for North Carolina in 1750 and settled in Buffalo Lick the following year. Boone spent several years working for his father, a blacksmith and stock-raiser, and then in 1755 began his travels when he joined a North Carolina contingent in the Braddock campaign. Stories he heard from his companion, John Finley, filled him with desire for pioneering the Kentucky wilderness, but after a disastrous battle, he returned home and married Rebeccah Bryan, a neighbor. In 1767, Boone and a couple of men headed westward to explore. They returned home and that same year Finley happened by and Boone and Finley made new plans to head for Kentucky. They commenced their journey in 1769, set up camp at Station Camp Creek, and after many adventures returned home in 1771. From that point forward, Boone set out for the west on a regular basis, accompanying various parties and settlers on their journeys. He brought his family to settle in Kentucky in 1775, and was made a captain and then a major in the militia once the region became a county of Virginia. He battled the Indians, was captured by the Shawnee in 1778, but later escaped and continued to accompany new settlers into the area. Kentucky was divided into three counties the next year and Boone was made lieutenant-colonel of Fayette County and later chosen as a delegate to the legislature. Boone's skill as a pioneer far outweighed his ability to manage his affairs, for, although he had taken up many tracts of land, they had all been improperly entered and after a series of suits over a number of years, lost all of the land. He left Kentucky and settled in West Virginia, where he was appointed lieutenant-colonel of the county and later selected as its legislative delegate. Around 1789, he moved to Missouri to join his son, Daniel Morgan, where he was soon elected to public office. After Boone's wife died in 1813, he lived mostly at the home of his other son, Nathan. Boone is remembered as a great pioneer for having "the most qualities needed on the frontier-courage in a rare degree, great fortitude, an iron endurance, a mastery of woodcraft, and single expertness with the rifle.... He was loyal in friendship, honest, truthful, and modest.... He was one of the most respected and beloved of the nation's heroes...." (DAB)

        Cursory Remarks on board the ship Friendship... in the years 1799, 1800, and 1801

      London: Black, Kingsbury, Parbury & Allen 1819-, 1820. Octavo, 13 consecutive extracts printing the full account (pagination varies), early owner&#39;s note that it was published in the "Asiatic Journal", presentation inscription; very good in contemporary half roan, gilt. Presentation volume: Bennelong, Sydney and a live kangaroo. A detailed and entertaining narrative by Mary Ann Reid, the wife of Hugh Reid, master of the{i Friendship }that sailed for New South Wales in 1799.{i }Mrs. Reid&#39;s "Cursory Remarks" were published in the monthly {i Asiatic Journal} between late 1819 and early 1820, in thirteen parts, and the author herself (as a presentation inscription makes clear) has had this full run of extracts bound as a gift for her sister Mrs. Campbell. The account is a particularly early account of a convict voyage written by a woman, and might be compared with Mary Ann Parker&#39;s account of the {i Gorgon} voyage. The {i Friendship} sailed from Cork in August 1799 with one hundred and thirty three convicts including a number of Irish political prisoners. Reid shows a genuine curiosity about life at sea, and is particularly interested in natural history, making comments and describing her attempts to make a small collection throughout the narrative. She spent some time ashore in St. Helena, spending nine days at the house of Henry Porteous, a protégé of Banks and botanist for the{i }East India Company. The ship arrived at Port Jackson in February 1800, and remained for three months, during which time she lived aboard ship, as it was deemed more comfortable than anything that could be found on shore. They were entertained royally by Hunter and Paterson, although internal politics were quite obvious (two rival farewells were thrown). She also had several interactions with Sydney Aborigines, including a fish dinner with Bennelong, but was not at all impressed with his manners. She was also taken to witness a ritual fight on the Barrack Square, which she describes in some detail, and gives a long and accurate account of a woman fishing in a bark canoe, openly impressed by the woman&#39;s dexterity. Her other great pastime was the collection of natural history, and her account is a surprisingly early notice of how such an activity was undertaken in polite society. Reid writes that she &#39;was not idle in making a little collection of birds, quadrupeds, and other animals, and of the weapons and implements of the natives&#39; either through purchase or gift. She is thrilled to acquire a &#39;young docile kangaroo&#39; in return for a bottle of spirits, but unfortunately the animal died on the return trip after a fall down the hatchway. The narrative was originally published in the {i Asiatic Journal and Monthly Register}, 1819-20.

        The Columbian, for the Country.

      "The New York Columbian is published daily afternoons by A. Spooner, No. 69 Pine Street. A semi-weekly paper for the country is published Tuesday and Friday mornings. 1819 - Size of binding: 13 ½ in. by 20 ¾ in. Approximately 96 issues from Volume 10: 836-849, [849], 850, [850]-858, [858]-863, 865-894, 896-910, [911], 911-926, 928, 929, 930, 932, 934, 935 (Brackets indicate that there are two issues bearing the same number.) The following issues are missing: Nov. 26, 1819 (Issue No. 927) Dec. 10, 1819 (Issue No. 931) Dec. 17, 1819 (Issue No. 933) There is no issue numbered 864 and no issue numbered 895. Since, however, there is no gap in dates between issues 863 and 865, or between issues 894 and 896, it appears that the printer erred in assigning numbers to the issues, not that those issues are missing from this collection. Each issue consists of two leaves or four pages. Totals: 194 leaves, 388 pages. Issue 886 shows one article cut out from the first of the two leaves of this issue. Issues 898 and 899 show stains. Issue 912 shows staining. Issue 934 shows damage to the paper, Issue 935 shows both staining and damage to the paper. Some issues show trimming to the top or bottom edge with the loss of a few letters of text. Some general age-related tanning as well as tan spotting is present to various issues. Old brown leather spine, sides, and corner pieces with a maroon leather title label with gilt designs and gilt titling, reading: "Columbian For the Country." Marbled paper over thick boards. The leather on the spine shows age-related deterioration, with chipping to the ends, hinges, and sides. The front cover is present but detached. The outer covers show considerable wear, with some of the marbled paper chipped away. The leather corner pieces show wear and chipping. On the inner front cover there are signs of deterioration and early repairs. There is a signature in ink present, but it is difficult to decipher. It may be: Chs. Haines. This volume once belonged to John B. Ireland, author of "From Wall Street to Cashmere" (1859). From the collection of William G. Mather (1857-1951), a Cleveland, Ohio-based book collector who was related by marriage to the Irelands. This volume requires proper paper-conservation and binding restoration. Weight is 8.5 lbs. Postage may be extra on this item. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Printed book label of Norris Marshall Jones and gilt red morocco bookplate of Richard Montgomery Gilchrist Potter. & & Papantonio mentions this book specifically in his ""The Dealer as Collector"" which prefaces his catalogue: ""About 1940 I sold a copy of Washington Irving&#39;s Sketchbook bound in red morocco by John Roulstone. I felt that I could not afford to keep it. In the early 1950s I was called in to look at a collection in a New York apartment, and among the books there was the Sketchbook. Needless to say it became part of my collection."" & & ""At his (Papantonio&#39;s) death, all but a half dozen of the books in American bindings came to the [American Antiquarian] Society. They included those shelved at his East 48th Streeet apartment as well as those volumes that he had culled from his collection and were then located in Princeton, New Jersey. Those few that did not join his collection in Worcester included the Confessions of Faith of the Boston Synod bound by Ratcliffe, a copy of The Columbiad bound exuberantly by William Swaim, and a presentation copy from the Congress to George Washington of the Acts of Congress, 1790"" (Early American Book Bindings, p. 87). Also retained was the present example. It was purchased privately in 1999 from Ximines which had been instrumental in selling off the remains of Papantonio&#39;s collection after his death."

        Nouveau Système de Minéralogie. Traduit du Suédois.

First French edition, of this famous mineralogical classic. '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 the 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 many 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 mineralogist of the day, whose own system was based on physical properties' (DSB).Ward & Carozzi 202; Hoover 122.

        Stereotype Edition of The British Essayists

      London - Andrew Wilson, 1819 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Eleven hardbound volumes. Very scarce in the original paper boards. The Spectator was a daily publication of 171112, founded by Joseph Addison and Richard Steele in England after they met at Charterhouse School. Eustace Budgell, a cousin of Addison&#39;s, also contributed. The stated goal of The Spectator was to enliven morality with wit, and to temper wit with morality. . . to bring philosophy out of the closets and libraries, schools and colleges, to dwell in clubs and assemblies, at tea-tables and coffeehouses (No. 10). It recommended that its readers consider it part of the tea-equipage (No. 10) and not leave the house without reading it in the morning. One of its functions was to provide readers with educated, topical talking points, and advice in how to carry on conversations and social interactions in a polite manner. In keeping with the values of Enlightenment philosophes of their time, the authors of The Spectator promoted family, marriage, and courtesy. The original Tatler was founded in 1709 by Richard Steele, who used a nom de plume of Isaac Bickerstaff, Esquire, the first such consistently adopted journalistic persona, which adopted in the first person, as it were, the seventeenth-century genre of characters, as first established in English by Sir Thomas Overbury and soon to be expanded by Lord Shaftesbury&#39;s Characteristics (1711). Steele&#39;s idea was to publish the news and gossip heard in London coffeehouses, hence the title, and seemingly, from the opening paragraph, to leave the subject of politics to the newspapers, while presenting Whiggish views and correcting middle-class manners, while instructing these Gentlemen, for the most part being Persons of strong Zeal, and weak Intellects. . . what to think. To assure complete coverage of local gossip, a reporter was placed in each of the city&#39;s popular coffeehouses, or at least such were the datelines: accounts of manners and mores were datelined from White&#39;s; literary notes from Wills; notes of antiquarian interest were dated from the Grecian Coffee House; and news items from St. Jamess. In its first incarnation, it was published three times a week. The original Tatler was published for only two years, from April 12, 1709 to January 2, 1711. A collected edition was published in 171011, with the title The Lucubrations of Isaac Bickerstaff, Esq. . The Guardian was a short-lived newspaper published in London from 12 March to 1 October 1713. It was founded by Richard Steele and featured contributions from Joseph Addison, Thomas Tickell and Ambrose Philips. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm with all covers and pages securely attached. There is some wear to the extremities including rubbing to the boards. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright with the occasional handling mark. The pages are rough cut and the occasional one is uncut at the top. Overall the volumes are in very good condition..

        Ledger for a New York Merchant, 1819 - 1828.

      - An un-named merchant, with a full clientele of individuals, with the usual entries for purchases of sugar, tea, rum, shrub, tobacco, bitters, flour, and nautical supplies for boats including sails and tack. Most interesting are the multiple entries for Daggett & Kensett. Our merchant appears to act as a bank & supplier for them, and supply ships in the US Navy. Payment of cash & occasionally supplies appear on the left side of the ledger, with long lists of US Navy ships & Captains on the right side of the ledger, with payments. Amongst the provisions supplied to Daggett & Kensett are Cash for Tin $53.63 1822, and 1823 Sept. 13, 12 barrels vinegar. They had developed a process for canning seafood (salmon, oysters and lobsters), in 1819, and in 1825, Ezra Daggett and Thomas Kensett of New York City were granted the first U.S. patent for food storage in cans. An April 3rd 1823 entry reads "Apl 3rd 1823 to Nov. 30th 1824 provisions sold US Navy received by US Navy received by Dept . $4350.30." The merchant had a good business, with deposits at the Franklin Bank, Bank of America & Bank of the United States, at times over $12,000. Other clients included the Brig Comet, Alfred Churchill, Sloop Eagle, Alexander M. Hamilton, Capt. Wm. Bunnell, Asaph Hall, Chatham 1823, possibly the father of Asaph Hall (October 15, 1829 - November 22, 1907) the American astronomer who discovered the moons of Mars in 1877.

Opinion Sur l'Affaire de Louis Capet, Adressée au Président de la Convention Nationale; Imprimée par ordre de la Conventional nationale. [No place, no date, but 1793]; [and with:] &#151; The American Crisis.

      London: printed & published by R. Carlile, 1819 - 3 works bound together in one volume, pp. 8; 10; [ii], 196; the first two works small octavo (approx. 195 × 122 mm), the third, with uncut edges, taller octavo (226 × 138 mm). Later mottled half calf, spine lettered gilt, marbled sides. Excellent copies. A2 and A3 misbound out of order in first work. First editions of the first two listed works, rare in commerce. No copy of the first work appears in auction records since 1975 and only one copy of the second. The Rights of Man brought Paine enormous popularity in France, and eventually election to the National Convention, the central governing agency of the First Republic. But Paine spoke little or no French and had to rely on a fellow deputy translating for him, and he had not grasped how dramatically the course of the revolution had changed. French adulation turned into anger when Paine opposed the execution of Louis XVI. After a bare majority had voted for death, Paine sought a reprieve by pressing for detention, and subsequent banishment to America, rather than execution (with Bancal reading a translation of his speech). Marat shouted him down on the grounds that he was a Quaker, and further interruptions by Marat and Thuriot challenged the accuracy of the translation being read and wrecked any chance of his plea finding support. In December 1793 he was arrested. Robespierre himself wrote out the order of execution, but Paine escaped this fate through an error of his captors and was released from prison the next year after the end of the Terror. The third work in this Sammelband was reprinted by the radical publisher Richard Carlile, who popularized the writings of Tom Paine to the next generation, adding a biography, The Life of Thomas Paine (1820). Carlile was the subject of several prosecutions in 1819; during one trial he famously read aloud The Age of Reason under the justification that the jury would have to judge whether it was blasphemous, an action which allowed him to republish the work under privilege of court (10,000 twopenny copies were subsequently sold). He was found guilty on two charges and sentenced to six years in Dorchester prison. [Attributes: First Edition]

The expedition rediscovered Baffins 17th century explorations and found three sounds including Smith, Jones and Lancaster. Unfortuately for Ross, he mistakenly thought the end of Lancaster sound was blocked by a fictitious range of mountains he named the Crocker mountains. After returning to England, many were scepitcal including William Parry about the existance of the mountain range. Parry was chosen to lead another expedition and discovered Lancaster Sound was the gateway to the North West Passage. Ross never lived down this mistake. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A Voyage Of Discovery Made Under The Orders Of The Admiralty, In His Majesty&#146;s Ships Isabella And Alexander, For The Purpose Of Exploring Baffin&#146;s Bay, And Enquiring Into The Probability Of A North-West Passage

      London: Printed by Strahan and Spottiswoode For Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, And Brown, 1819. - 2 Volumes in 1. 8vo. pp. lxix, 265; 2 p.l., 258. folding engraved map, 2 engraved plates (1 folding), & 1 full-page diagram. contemporary mottled calf, gilt back (surface tear to leather on rear cover, 2 small embossed library stamps, 1 plate repaired along fold with slight loss of image, bookplates & pockets removed from endpapers). Second (First Octavo) Edition of this famous voyage, which marked the resurgence of British interest in the search for the north-west passage, and inaugurated the great arctic explorations and discoveries of the nineteenth century. Among Ross&#146;s officers on the voyage were William Edward Parry, James Clark Ross, and Edward Sabine. Setting out in April of 1818, the expedition rediscovered Baffin Bay and its three Sounds, Smith, Jones, and Lancaster, thereby vindicating the reports made by William Baffin in 1616. Sailing some distance into Lancaster Sound, Ross sited a mirage which he believed to be a range of mountains blocking further passage. These he named the Croker Mountains in honour of the first secretary of the Admiralty, J.W.Croker. On his return to England, Ross&#146;s report was initially accepted as conclusive and he was promoted to Captain, but his contention that Lancaster Sound was landlocked was disputed by other members of the crew, notably by his second-in-command, William Edward Parry. Parry&#146;s view was supported by Sir John Barrow, second secretary of the Admiralty, with whom Ross was to carry on a life-long quarrel as a result. In 1819, the Admiralty appointed Parry to lead a second expedition, which proved Ross to be mistaken. His reputation seriously discredited, Ross was never again given command of an official government expedition. National Maritime Museum I 818n. Sabin 73376. Smith 8796.

        Travels in England, France, Spain and the Barbary States in the years 1813-14 and 15

      Kirk and Mercein 1819 - With engraved portrait frontis of the author, vi, (1) Errata, 431 pages, xlvii Appendix. Plates include: full page engraved view of Algiers, folding plate of engraving of The Fortress of Goletta near Tunis, full page engraving of Merchant Slave & Arab, and full page engraving of Abdallah American Drogaman. Foxing. The blank preceding frontispiece has two signatures and a clipping of some bookseller's listing: Daniel [?]i[?] Jr. 1820. The book is complete and has a very attractive modern full leather binding. Noah served as U.S. Consul to Tunis and was the first American Jew to receive an overseas diplomatic assignment. Descriptions of daily life and social customs of the Muslims and Jews comprise a valuable window into the intrigues of that historical time. Noah (1785-1851) was a lawyer, playwright, and journalist. He was born in Philadelphia of Portuguese-Jewish ancestry. "In 1813 [he] was appointed consul to Tunis, with a special mission to Algers. He was instructed to negotiate for the release of some Americans held as prisoners by the Algerine pirates. On May 23, 1813, he sailed from Charleston, but his vessel being captured by the British, he was taken to England and detained two months. In October he arrived in Cadiz, where he contracted with Richard R. Keene, an American who had become a Spanish subject, to effect the release of the twelve Americans After being detained in France and Spain for more than a year, Noah finally arrived in Tunis. On July 30, 1815, he received a letter from James Monroe, secretary of state, revoking his commission and hinting at irregularities in his accounts. Monroe's treatment of Noah was never satisfactorily explained, though his association with Keene, who had been accused of treason, was doubtless detrimental. In January 1817, however, Noah received a letter from the Department of State which vindicated his conduct and returned several thousand dollars due him in the enterprise which resulted in the release of the American captives" (DAB).

        1819 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT 'POOR RATE' BOOK FOR DEWSBURY WEST YORKSHIRE

      DEWSBURY WEST YORKSHIRE ENGLAND UK WAKEFIELD LEEDS 1819 - On offer is an original 1819 'DEWSBURY POOR RATE BOOK' [a book of 'poor rates' collected yearly from property owners to fund assistance to the needy of a parish] and besides being for the most part full included is a handwritten letter dated 1941 explaining that the book had come from the John Tweedale Settlement Trust (land at Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, England). Research provides that in 1864 John Tweedale takes the position of Lord Mayor of Dewsbury. In 1869 Joseph Tweedale Rawsthorne does the same. This book is superbly placed in early 19th centruy Dewsbury history as evidenced by this online entry: 'In the early 1800s Dewsbury was one of the centres of Luddite opposition to industrialization in which workers retaliated against the onset of mechanization and smashed the new machinery which threatened their way of life. In the 1830s Dewsbury was also one of the centres of Chartist agitation. The C vote to the working classes. In August 1838, after a speech by Chartist leader Fergus O'Connell, a mob of between five and seven thousand people besieged the Dewsbury Poor Law Guardians in the town's Royal Hotel. The mob had to be dispersed by troops. Trouble again flared in 1840 when radical agitators seized control of the town, again troops were called in and stationed in the town to maintain order. This radical tradition left a legacy in the political life of the town, in fact the town's first elected MP in 1867 was John Simon, a Jewish lawyer from Jamaica and a Liberal.' Nine signatures of the Church Wardens and Overseers dated the book as stated. 26.5cms / 10.5" high x 14cms / 5.5" wide x 2cms / 0.75" deep.
