        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.

        Nouveau Système de Minéralogie. Traduit du Suédois.

      Paris Méquignon-Marvis 1819 - (20,5 x 13 cm). (4) VI, 314 (1) S. Dekorativer Halblederband der Zeit mit hübscher Rückenvergoldung. Erste französische Ausgabe, von Berzelius selbst aus dem Schwedischen übersetzt. - "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 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). - Linke obere Ecke durchgehend mit kleinem Fleckenrand, gegen Ende hin größer werdend. Einband leicht bestoßen. Oberes Kapital etwas eingerissen, trotz der Mängel dekoratives Exemplar in ordentlicher Erhaltung. - DSB 2, 94; Holmberg S. 37, No. 21; Hoover 122; Bolton 308 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Texas

      May 1, 1819. Rare Autograph Document Signed “James Cummins,” one page, 7.5” x 3”. [Arkansas County, Missouri Territory], May 1, 1819. In full “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.” 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.

        Defeat at Yorktown. The British Surrendering their amrs to Gen. Washington after their Defeat at Yorktown, in Virginia, October, 1781

      Tanner, Vallance, Kearny & Co, [Philadelphia] 1819 - Hand-colored copper engraving. Sheet size: 24 1/4 x 34 1/2 inches. Scarce American print depicting the British surrender at Yorktown. This wonderful and large print depicts a British surrender at the Battle of Yorktown. The British officers are aligned on the right, with Cornwallis presenting his sword hilt first, with French officers in the center (including Lafayette) and American officers to the left. George Washington is prominently featured, holding his hat in his left hand and extending it toward the British. The American officers standing beside Washington include depictions of Alexander Hamilton, Benjamin Lincoln, and Henry Knox, The designer of the composition, John Francis Renault, was an engineer in the French army and assistant to the Comte de Grasse (he anglicised his name from Jean-François when he settled in America) and claimed to have been present at the siege and ultimate surrender at Yorktown. The scene he offers us is accurate in spirit, Cornwallis was too sick, he claimed, to be present at the surrender, delegating O'Hara, his second-in-command, to hand over his sword; which he gave to General Lincoln. Of the foreigners present, the most illustrious was Lafayette. Meanwhile, behind this gathering, various dramas are played out on higher levels of allegory. To the left, Justice and Abundance stand beside a giant urn inscribed with the names of absent (some through death) American heroes, including Montgomery, Franklin, Mercer, Laurens, Putnam, Adams and Lee. A child with a great paddle inscribed 'American Constitution' - the helm of statehood - frolics before it, with an attendant. Rising up beside her is a column surmounted by Lady Liberty with her liberty cap. To the right, and in stark contrast to these images of reason and enlightenment, a host of ancient tyrants spills from an upturned and smashed chariot, vanquished by another gravity-defying figure of Liberty. They fall to earth behind the defeated British generals. Fielding 1567(under Tanner; titled Yorktown Surrender).

        The Cenci. A Tragedy, in Five Acts.

      [Livorno,] Italy: for C. and J. Ollier, London, 1819 - Small quarto (225 × 145 mm). Late 19th-century red-brown full morocco by Ramage, raised bands tooled in gilt to spine forming compartments, second and third gilt-lettered direct between double rules gilt, remaining compartments triple-ruled in gilt, "Italy 1819" tooled to foot in gilt, broad seven-fillet border to covers gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, floral roll to turn-ins gilt, marbled endpapers. Armorial bookplate of Joseph Turner to front pastedown. Light rubbing to corners, joints and headcaps, very faint foxing towards top edge of title-page, p. 102 and binder's blanks, light marginal tanning to pp. 29-33, small spill-burn to p. 9 partially obscuring one letter, otherwise the very occasional spot chiefly restricted to margins. These flaws minor: an excellent, notably wide-margined copy in a fine Victorian binding. First edition, one of 250 copies printed; scarce in commerce, with the second, London edition (the only second edition of his own Shelley lived to see) more usually encountered. Shelley's verse tragedy proved an unexpected sensation on publication despite its action being far too lurid for the London stage. He been fascinated by the story of Beatrice Cenci and Guido's portrait of her in the Colunna palace at Rome, and originally intended the latter to be copied as a frontispiece for this book. He worked exceptionally fast on his version of the tragedy, starting in May and ending in August of his annus mirabilis, the same year he wrote Prometheus Unbound, The Masque of Anarchy, and the "Ode to the West Wind". The book is excellently produced, handsomely printed on thick laid paper: "It has a few errors of the press incidental to the Italian compositors' ignorance of English. but on the whole it seems to me a preferable text to the second edition – a text more like the absolute production of Shelley" (Forman).

The collection also includes the first book appearance of perhaps Shelley's most famous single poem, the sonnet "Ozymandias", as well as first book appearances of "Lines Written on the Euganean Hills" and the "Hymn to Intellectual Beauty" which was composed in that famously gloomy yet fecund summer of 1816, spent on the shores of Lake Geneva with Mary, Claire Clairmont, Byron and Polidori, from which issued Mary's Frankenstein, Byron's Mazeppa, Polidori's The Vampyre, and also Shelley's "Mont Blanc".

Much of the material which appears in the later work was contained in the earlier CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE, and must be considered therefore as the earliest work printed within the state relative to the aboriginal history of the area. Copies of the CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE are virtually never offered for sale, and when they infrequently appear the price is justifiably considerable for this Tennessee Rarity, which has to date never been reprinted" - Allen, TENNESSEE RARITIES.

        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. In 1813 Sir William returned to England, whereupon he began work on this book providing an account of his travels to and in Persia.

        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.

        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.
