        A description of the sights, or, instruments for pointing guns;

      royal 8vo., 3 engraved plates (2 of which are folding), vi (7) - 25 (2) 24 - 55 (1)pp., including the half-title (which has some soiling), original soiled boards, neatly rebacked. A very good large copy with the contemporary ownership signature of "Henry Beaufoy**, South Lambeth. April 1820", at head of title. A relatively little known contribution to military technology by William Congreve (1772-1828), best known now for his designs for military rockets, the "Congreve Rocket system", which he regarded as in every way superior to conventional military and naval ordnance. Among the 18 or so patents taken out by Congreve between May 1808 and February 1827, none appears, however, to be for his gun sights. * H.M.S. Liffey (1813-1827) was a 40 gun (later 50 gun) Endymion-class frigate built for the Royal Navy by Wigram, Wells & Green at Blackwall on the Thames. Launched in 1813, H.M.S. Liffey saw action in the First Burmese War but was finally broken up in July 1827. ** Henry Beaufoy was a son of the astronomer and physicist Mark Beaufoy (1764-1827), a founder member of the Society for the Improvement of Naval Architecture. It was Henry who in 1834 was to publish his father's experimental research into the relationship between hull shapes and water resistance.

        Autograph Letter, signed ("Spontini"), to Monsieur de Lattré, reminding him of an invitation to dine with Mme. Spontini

      N.p. [Paris?] 1819 - One page, in French. 8vo. The Neapolitan-born Gaspare Luigi Pacifico Spontini (1774-1851) was a celebrated composer of operas in his day, who made his career in Paris under the patronage of the Empress Josephine. His most famous opera, LA VESTALE, premiered in Paris in 1807, and, according to Grove's Dictionary, underwent over 200 performances in Paris by the year 1824. As late as 1954, in fact, in celebration of the composer's 180th birthday, it enjoyed a revival at La Scala with Maria Callas in the leading role.*According to calendars, only these two years during Spontini's time in Paris had a September 22 which fell on Wednesday. Spontini left Paris in 1819 to accept a position with the Dresden opera.

        Traite des Arbres et des Arbustes que l'on Cultive en France en plain terre.

      Paris: Etienne Michel and Arthus Bertrand, [1800]-1819. - 7 volumes, folio (16 6/8 x 10 inches). Half-titles. Engraved title-page to volume one after Percier et Thibaud engraved by Pillement and Née. 496 fine color-printed stipple-engraved plates FINISHED BY HAND (including more than 400 after P. J. Redouté and some 30 after Pancrace Bessa), and 2 engraved plates. Contemporary half calf gilt, marbled boards, all edges uncut (expertly rebacked preserving the original spines). Provenance: Anonymous ownership inscription: "G[ift] of Mr. John S. Ames, December 1951" on the verso of the title-page of each volume. Second edition, sometimes called the "Nouveau Duhamel" or, "New Duhamel", ONE OF A SMALL NUMBER PRINTED ON LARGE PAPER, is completely revised and enlarged, and bares very little resemblance to the book published by Duhamel with the same title in two volumes in 1755. The magnificent color plates, the majority of them after Redoute, and many after Bessa are new to this edition. Pierre-Joseph Redoute (1759-1840), often called "the Raphael of flowers," was born in the Belgian Ardennes - the son, grandson, great-grandson and brother of artists. From the beginning, Redoute's talents were recognized by distinguished men and women who took pleasure in forwarding his career. For the study of botany, his teacher was Heritier de Brutelle, one of the outstanding naturalists of his day. Gerard van Spaendonck, Flower Painter to the King, taught Redoute the technique of painting in watercolor on vellum. But by the master's own account, the pupil's work was finer. The luminosity of stipple engraving is particularly suited to the reproduction of botanical detail. It is essentially a technique of engraving a copper plate with a dense grid of dots which can be modulated to convey delicate gradations of color. Because the ink lies on the paper in miniscule dots, it does not obscure the "light" of the white paper beneath the color. After this complicated printing process was complete, the prints were then finished by hand in watercolor, so as to conform to the models Redoute provided. Redoute had, as pupils or patrons, five queens and empresses of France, from Marie Antoinette to Josephine's successor, the Empress Marie-Louise. Despite many changes of regime in this turbulent epoch, he worked without interruption, eventually contributing to over fifty books on natural history and archaeology. Du Hamel (later de-nobilized to Duhamel) du Monceau was born to a farming family in Paris. By 21 he was studying at the Jardin du Roi, which later became the Jardin des Plantes, where he became friends with Bernard de Jussieu (1699 –1777?), who recommended him to the Académie des Sciences. He published a number of scientific works on fruit trees and other plants: "Recherches sur les causes de la multiplication des espèces des fruit", "Anatomie de la Poire" (1730-1731), and "Traité des Arbres Fruitiers" (1768). From 1755, Duhamel began publication of the eight-volume work "Traité complet des Bois et des Fôrets" that would attempt to detail "all aspects of trees including their planting, growth, maintenance, and transportation. The first installation started with two volumes titled "Traité des Arbres et Arbustes" (1755). Other titles that were included in the comprehensive work were "La Physique des Arbres" (1758), "De l’Exploitation des Bois" (1764), and finally "Du Transport" (1767). Between the years 1752 and 1777, he authored various works that appeared both in Diderot’s "Encyclopédie" and the "Dictionnaire des Arts et Metiers". Bret Payne for Oak Spring Garden Library online. Brunet II, 871; Dunthorne, 243; "Great Flower Books", p.55' Nissen 549; Plesch p. 211; Pritzel 2470.

        Recueil factice de travaux 10 travaux, pour la plupart extraits de l'Histoire de l'Académie Royale des Sciences et de l'Institut, dont le rapport sur les tontines

      1819 - pagination multiple , 1819-1831, in-4, pagination multiple, demi-chagrin brun, dos à faux nerfs [H. Durand], Fourier fut l'un des savants qui participa à la reconstitution de l'Académie des Sciences en 1817 ; il en devint le secrétaire perpétuel en 1822. Il publia plusieurs travaux dans les Mémoires, dont ceux ici présentés, notamment le rapport de la commission dont Fourier faisait partie, avec Lacroix et Poisson, au sujet des tontines : ce travail suscita un grand intérêt à l'époque où il parut et il fut perçu comme oeuvre de bien public. En effet, Fourier y dénonçait ces groupe d'épargnants percevant des intérêts viagers lors du décès de l'un des associés ; d'une part, concluait-il, ce système implique la part funeste du hasard en lieu et place de ce qui devrait être le fruit du travail, d'autre part il encourage la jouissance personnelle et le retrait de la société. Les pièces extraites de l'Histoire de l'Académie sont reliées dans l'ordre suivant : 1. "Mémoire sur la température des habitations et sur le mouvement varié de la chaleur dans les prismes rectangulaires". Extrait des Mémoires de l'Académie Royale des Sciences et de l'Institut, année 1817, T. II (publication : 1819) ; Histoire de l'Académie Royale des Sciences), p. XVIII à XXVI. 2. "Recherches sur l'analyse algébrique". Extrait des Mémoires de l'Académie Royale des Sciences et de l'Institut, année 1821-1822, T. V (publication : 1826) ; Histoire de l'Académie Royale des Sciences, p. 9 à 11. 3. "Rapport sur les tontines, présenté dans la séance du 9 avril 1821. La commission était composée de MM. Fourrier, rapporteur, Lacroix et Poisson". Id, p. 26 à 43. Les rapports suivants donnent l'analyse des travaux de l'Académie pour la partie mathématique : Fourier en est désormais le rapporteur, après avoir succédé à Delambre en tant que secrétaire perpétuel en 1822. 4. "Rapport lu dans la séance publique de l'institut, le 24 avril 1823". Id, p. 231 à 320. 5. Géométrie. Extrait des Mémoires de l'Académie Royale des Sciences et de l'Institut, année 1823, T. VI (publication : 1827) ; Histoire de l'Académie Royale des Sciences), p. I à LX. 1823. 6. "Rapport lu dans la séance publique de l'institut, le 24 avril 1824". Extrait des Mémoires de l'Académie Royale des Sciences et de l'Institut, T. VII (1827). P.I à XCI. 7. Géométrie. Extrait des Mémoires de l'Académie Royale des Sciences et de l'Institut, T. VIII (publication : 1829) ; Histoire de l'Académie Royale des Sciences, p. I à LXXII. 8. Géométrie. Analyse des travaux de l'Académie Royale des Sciences pendant l'année 1826. Extrait des Mémoires de l'Académie Royale des Sciences et de l'Institut, T. IX (publication : 1830) ; Histoire de l'Académie Royale des Sciences), p. I à XCV. 9. Géométrie, "Supplément au cinquième volume du Traité de la mécanique céleste de M. Laplace". Analyse des travaux de l'Académie Royale des Sciences pendant l'année 1827. Extrait des Mémoires de l'Académie Royale des Sciences et de l'Institut, T. X (publication : 1831) ; Histoire de l'Académie Royale des Sciences, p. I à LIX. La 10e pièce, reliée à à suite du rapport sur les tontines, est extraite quant à elle du Journal de physique, de chimie et d'histoire naturelle, novembre an 1821 : "Considérations générales sur la population (Extrait des Mémoires statistiques de la ville de Paris)". Tome XCIII, novembre 1821, p. 321 à 446. Joseph Fourier (1768-1830) fut successivement titulaire de la chaire d'analyse mathématique à l'École polytechnique tout juste fondée, secrétaire perpétuel de l'Académie créée par Bonaparte au Caire, préfet de l'Isère, membre de l'Académie des sciences, puis de l'Académie française. Il est reconnu pour sa célèbre Théorie de la chaleur, élaborée dès 1805. Ex-libris imprimé du bibliophile Henri Viellard et l'estampille annulée de l'Institut Catholique de Paris.

        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.

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").

"By construing the contract clause as a means of protecting corporate charters from state interventions, Marshall derived a significant limitation on state authority.
