        Autograph Letter Signed New Haven, July 28, 1818 to William R. Prince, 85 South Street, New York

      - small quarto, one page, plus address leaf, folded, in very good clean condition. John Dungy was a Free Black New York shoemaker, who became a founding father of the African American church. Dungy writes: ¿Mr. Prince, Sir I received the role of Leather No 2 you need not send eny more until you see me as I exspect be down in two or three weekes with a hansom lott of shoes for you ¿ I have the greater part now made but if you have an opportunity of getting a cheap lott of light soal leather you may on a cheap lote morocco ¿ I am yours Affectionately John Dungy¿ This letter was written by John Dungy, a free black man who, three months after he wrote this letter, opened a ¿Cheap Shoe Store¿ at 24 Chatham Street, New York City, next door to the New York Free School (which, incidentally, had some Black students, separate from the New York African Free School that ¿charitably¿ educated freed slaves). In newspaper advertisements, John Dungy declared that ¿the public shall no longer be imposed on by the exorbitant prices charged for boots and shoes in Broadway¿; his cheaper prices making it ¿unnecessary to make use of extortion towards a generous public.¿ After a year, with his business failing, Dungy moved across the street, hoping to appeal exclusively to the ¿female portion of his customers.¿ But he soon closed or sold the store and turned to a new vocation: Dungy joined James Varick, another free Black ex-shoemaker, and white Rev. William Stilwell in preaching at the first service of the first African Methodist Episcopal church in New York, founded by Varick. Later that month, Dungy attended a meeting at Varick¿s home to debate whether Black Methodist preachers should remain subject to white Methodist domination, should be ordained by a splinter group of white Methodists led by Stilwell, or establish their own church organization. This question was still unsettled when Dungy (described in one contemporary account as a ¿contentious person¿) went back to New Haven and applied to the white Methodist establishment there for a license to preach, while, at the same time, urging local African Americans ¿to put themselves under the white Methodists government¿. This ¿caused some uneasiness¿ among African Americans in New Haven and promoted a permanent factional split in the growing ranks of African Methodists. But Dungy supported Varick¿s ultimate decision to opt for a completely separate African Methodist Episcopal Church organization, of which Varick became the first ¿Supervisor¿ ¿ later called ¿Bishop.¿ Dungy himself went on to become Pastor of an A.M.E. congregation in Troy, New York, where he probably remained for the rest of his life. John Dungy is hard to trace in historical records. There is no published historical record of Dungy before he joined Varick in 1820 or after he settled in Troy in the early 1830s. In Virginia there were both free Blacks and Slaves (said to be mixed race grandchildren of President John Tyler) named Dungy, including another Rev. John Dungy, who escaped to Canada thanks to Frederick Douglass and the Underground Railroad. But there is no clear link between the Virginia Dungy¿s and the New York shoemaker and church pioneer. This may be the only existing letter in his hand.

        Holograph manuscript, not signed, fair copy of a Scottish song, first line: "It's hame & it's hame & it's hame I wad be."

      Circa 1820, 1820. Apparently not published in this form. Scott manuscript material with interesting Scottish content is uncommon in the trade. Some minor tears and stains; in fine condition.. Single sheet, 20 x 33 cm, folded to make four pages, three stanzas of four lines each, approximately 120 words. Text of the song on page one. Later note in another hand on page four. A traditional Scottish song, a shorter version of which Scott included in The Fortunes of Nigel (1822), page 476. James Hogg also had a version of this song in his The Jacobite Relics of Scotland (1819-1821). Scott collected his own renderings of these songs to use in his novels and for eventual publication in his complications of Scottish melodies and aires, but this one did not appear in the latter collections. On page four is a note in pencil in a near contemporary hand: "Given by Miss Clephane for whom it was written to G. S. Cantley [?]. The three Miss MacLean Clephanes of Torloisk, Isle of Man, were wards of Sir. W. Scott . . ."

A la suite de la disparition du Conservateur, « M. de Bonald réunit de nouveau ses efforts à ceux de M. de SaintVictor, le savant et spirituel auteur du Nouveau Tableau de Paris, pour continuer à soutenir, dans le Défenseur, les principes religieux et politiques qu'il avoit professés dans le Conservateur. Cette nouvelle publication périodique renfermoit peut-être des doctrines plus monarchiques, et plus constamment conformes aux principes de l'auteur de la Législation primitive ; mais l'attrait piquant d'une opposition ardente lui inanquoit, et le Défenseur n'eut qu'une assez courte existence. Quelque mérite qu'aient les publications politiques, c'est malheureusement l'opposition seule qui a le privilége de les faire vivre : c'est là un des maux de notre époque, et personne ne le sentoit plus profondément que le sage écrivain. Quoi qu'il en soit, le Défenseur, dans sa courte existence, remplit mieux sa mission que le journal qu'il avoit remplacé : il défendit mieux que le Conservateur ne conserva, et son titre plus modeste fut aussi plus facile à justifier » (H. de Bonald, Notice sur le vicomte de Bonald).

        [in Hebrew characters, transliterated at] Doz Nayye` Te`stame`nt fon De`m Me`ssyas.

      [London]: Gedruckt bey A. Macintosh 8vo (18 cm; 7"). 591, [1 (blank)] pp.. 1820 In 1820 the London Society for Promoting Christianity amongst the Jews (commonly known as the London Jews Society, or the L.J.S.) ? founded in 1809 ? undertook to supply German-speaking Jews with copies of the German Scriptures in Rabbinic character. With this object it employed Judah D'Allemand to transliterate Luther's version of the N.T., using Von Meyer's Frankfort edition of 1819" (Darlow & Moule). We have to admit that there is considerable disagreement as to whether the language of this N.T. is Yiddish, Judeo-German, or merely German in Hebrew characters. Different libraries have catalogued it differently; the majority say Yiddish. We take the middle ground of Judeo-German, that is, German-based Yiddish rather than Polish Yiddish. To us, this makes sense as the LJS published a Polish Yiddish N.T. the next year (i.e., 1821). Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate fewer than ten U.S. libraries reporting ownership. Recent marbled paper over boards, black leather gilt spine label. Scattered foxing, notably to first and last leaves; evidence of light use only. => A rather nice copy.

        Ile de Philae. Vue Perspective du Temple de L'Ouest et de Plusieurs Autres Edifices.

      Panckouke. Paris. Ca. 1820. - Copper plate engraving (uncolored), image approx. 16 x 24 inches on sheet approximately 21 x 28 inches. Very good condition: light scattered foxing (mainly outside image area), a few short tears to lower edge (image not affected). Publisher's blindstamp at top right. This very large, finely engraved image is plate 24 from Volume I of the Antiquities section of the monumental publication "Description de L'Egypte," which documented the research of the "savants" who accompanied Napoleon Bonaparte's ambitious expedition to Egypt (1798-1801). The full title, translated into English reads "Description of Egypt, or the collection of observations and research made in Egypt during the Expedition of the French Army" hinting at the varied purposes of this foray into the Middle East. The European demand for information about Egypt and its glorious monuments led to the publication of two editions of the work, with engravings pulled from the same printing plates; this is from the second edition, uncolored as issued. Shown is a panoramic view of the Birth House and several other structures found on the Island of Philae in Upper Egypt; the quality of the engraving powerfully evokes the splendor of this beautiful edifice.

Early American Jewish merchant Moses Myers (1753-1835) was born in New York City to Dutch merchant Hyam Myers and Rachel Louzada. After serving briefly in the New York Second Battalion during the American Revolution, he went into business with his cousin Samuel Myers. Shortly after marrying Eliza Judah in 1787, he moved to Norfolk, Virginia and established an import/export business there. Myers and his family were the first permanent Jewish- American residents in the Norfolk area, and would compose the regions entire Jewish population for over a decade. His house, constructed in 1795 and occupied by the Myers family until 1935, still stands in downtown Norfolk and is the oldest Jewish home in America operated as a museum.

Gerritt, concerning the capture of the Ship Nancy by the Ship of War Goree. Folio.

        Mémoires et anecdotes sur la dynastie régnante des djogouns, souverains du Japon, avec la description des fêtes et cérémonies observées aux différentes epoques de l'année a la cour de ces princes, et un appendice contenant des détails sur la poésie des Japonais, leur manière de diviser l'année, etc; ouvrage orné de planches gravées et coloriées, tiré des originaux Japonais par M. Titsingh; publié avec les notes et éclaircissemens par M. Abel Rémusat.

      Paris, A. Nepveu, 1820. 8vo (19.3 x 12.0 cm). xxviii, 302 pp., one hand-coloured folded frontispiece, one engraved folded table, five hand-coloured folded plates. Contemporary full tree calf. Spine rich gilt including empire vignettes and a red morocco label with gilt title. Marbled endpapers. Edges speckled.= Isaac Titsingh (1745-1812) was a Dutch surgeon, scholar, merchant and ambassador. During a long career in East Asia, Titsingh was a senior official of the Dutch East India Company. Between 1779 and 1784 he was head of a factory in Deshima, then the only ?eye? between Japan and the rest of the world. 18th and early 19th century Japan was much of a mystery to foreigners. This work unveils some its secrets. However, it does not only deal with the Japanese and their customs, but also reports on the geology of the country and in particular on the active volcanos. Two of the large, hand-coloured folded plates depict eruptions; of the Asama-Yama, and of a volcano in the Simahara district. The first of these plates, as well as a view of the island of Deshima with the Dutch factory were used again in Titsingh's "Byzonderheden over Japan", volume II (1825), see Landwehr. This edition is the first one published. The French sinologist Jean Pierre Abel Rémusat (1788-1832) edited the work after Titsingh's death in Paris. An English translation was published in 1822 and formed the basis of a translation (back?) into Dutch. Boards slightly rubbed, caption of one plate shaved with some small loss of text. Inner front hinge reinforced, otherwise a fine copy of this very rare work. Brunet V, 28316; Landwehr 456 (not this work, but "Byzonderheden over Japan", see above).

        Card game. [France, c. 1820/30].

      1820. Complete set of 32 erotic engraved translucent cards, 80 x 52 mm. Stored loosely in contemp. cardboard slipcase. This complete set of 32 cards is an erotic variant of the famous "Cartes royales" by Armand Houbigant. The original was published in 1818 with a royal privilege (cf. Schreiber, French, 31, and Hoffmann 35 with plate 52a). It marks the beginning of the costume playing card; Chatto (Facts and Speculations on the origin and history of playing cards, London 1848, p. 257) praises the illustrations as "the best of the costume cards that I have seen". They were considered very rare as early as the mid-19th century. The erotic cards (revealing a hidden image when held up to the light) created after this pattern are simplified reproduced engravings, but of extreme rarity in this form. This unique variant is especially noteworthy for stating the names of the persons depicted: kings Charlemagne, Louis the Saint (!), Francis I and Henry IV, queens Hildegarde, Blanche de Castille, Marguerite de Valois and Jeanne d' Albret; the Jacks are illustrated by important military commanders. No matching set is known. - Quite clean; slipcase rather strongly scratched and scuffed.
