MARSH, John
F. C. & J. Rivington 1821. Bound volume with 3 preliminary leaves and 208 pages, complete with four folded engraved plates of interplanetary diagrams bound at the end. Bound in original cloth backed boards. First Edition of an extraordinary Rare and Early Vision of Inter-Planetary Travel. The author of this little known work is now known to be the English dilettante composer and philosopher John Marsh [1752-1828] who has left behind a large number of journals as well as musical compositions, mostly unpublished. Marsh apparently, late in the 18th Century, became fascinated with the idea of the travels of the spirit immediately after death and in 1796 completed the manuscript of this fictional account in voyage form between continents, moons and planets of the then known Solar System. Marsh was fascinated by contemporary astronomical discoveries and produced this fantasy based upon them. According to sources he revised the work with the above title in 1800 but did not publish it until here in 1821. It did not, apparently, attract much attention and his authorship has been unrecorded until recent years. As an example of quasi-science fiction in the English language it is a remarkable work, if somewhat tediously written in the Eighteenth century high 'literary' style, but it is to be found in relatively few private or public collections. Upper board detached, slight foxing to plates, else in sound original condition. Size:12 x 20 cm. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

London: Printed by J. and C. Adlard, 1821. [Panorama.] Description of a View of Bern, and the High Alps, with the Surrounding Country.

First edition. 8vo. pp. 12; large folding frontispiece engraving of Bern with key; closed tear to margin of engraving, else very good in contemporary plain wrappers. This uncommon item was a guide to be purchased for use in the panorama exhibited at London's Leicester Square.

The text offers a four-page description of Bern, followed by explanations of the sites and distant mountains shown in the panorama. The final three pages offer a "Description of the High Alps", with brief paragraphs on 12 peaks that include the Wetterhorn, Schreckhorn, Finsteraarhorn, Eiger, Monch, and the Jungfrau.

African American]. [Rhode Island]. [Henry Jackson].
Providence: Printed by Brown & Danforth, 1821. First edition.. Light faint stain to the lower inside corner of the text block; some light soiling, untrimmed fore-edges a little worn; a very good copy.. Unbound pamphlet, stitched as issued, 9.25 x 6 inches, 32 pages, untrimmed. That the Africans and their descendants are not only capable of acquiring the common rudiments of education, but the higher branches of science, the most plenary evidence could be adduced. . . . Although the natural equality of the Europeans and Africans has been repeatedly demonstrated, yet if there was even an injurious disparity inherent in the latter, it would not diminish, but rather enhance their claim to have their one talent cultivated to the utmost limits of which it is capable, in order to render them useful citizens." The detailed account of the foundation and organization of this important early African American church and school in Providence, the result of a committee of both African American and white Providence residents who secured a bequest from Moses Brown to found the Meeting House and school which eventually evolved in the Congdon Street Baptist Church. This work does much to suggest the propriety of educating African Americans, with the inclusion here of a substantial portion of Benjamin Banneker's 1791 letter to Jefferson on the intelligence of the Negro and Jefferson's reply. Per the catalog entry found on OCLC, "Authorship derived from inscription on copy in Moses Brown Papers Collection (MS 930), UMass Amherst Special Collections, and from the text of: A memorial of Rev.

Antoine Prudence Lalouette
1821. This tremendous manuscript collection documents in great detail a pioneering French settler s ambitious struggles to establish a home in the new state of Alabama in the early 1820s. In 1821, Antoine Prudence Lalouette, formerly a lieutenant of infantry under Napoleon Bonaparte, left Burgundy to establish a new home in America. He sailed from Le Havre and arrived in New Orleans in June 1821. Lalouette immediately set out for Mobile, where he acquired a prime 1240-acre parcel of land near Mobile Bay on Riviere aux Poissons (present-day Fish River). Over the course of the next two years Lalouette worked to clear the land, equip himself, build a home and slave quarters, and cultivate the land, while surviving in a harsh, wild environment. Lalouette s extremely long letters to his wife, closely but legibly written, begin with accounts of his eventful travels including his ship s arrival in the Gulf of Mexico pursued by a corsair, his stay in New Orleans, where streets were just beginning to be paved, and his journey to Mobile in search of property. He finally bought the 1240-acre parcel at the junction of the Fish River near Mobile Bay. In these densely written letters, the extremely observant French settler analyzes the state of agriculture in the deep South and the prospects for making his fortune there. He describes Mobile, its population, and its markets. Lalouette visits a neighbor who has already made a fortune and has twenty slaves and a brickyard. He makes calculations of expected profits taking into account the number of animals and the cost of slaves, makes an in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mgr. le Duc de Berri, Et Consequences a en Tirer par Rapport au Gouvernement et a la Societe. Paris: Imprimerie de Chaignieau, Jeune, 1821. 48 pp. Two added tipped-in color plates of the Duke and Dutchess de Berry. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into contemporary stiff-wrappers covered in contemporary wallpaper, hand-lettered title panel pasted to front. Light shelfwear to boards, spine abraded, most of backstrip worn away, a few cracks to text block, binding secure. Engraved bookplate of Cardinal Ernest-Louis Dubois [1856-1929], Archbishop of Paris, to front pastedown. Toning and light foxing to text, internally clean. A rare title. * In February 1820, Charles-Ferdinand, Duke of Berry, the last living male in the Bourbon line, was stabbed to death in front of the Paris Opera by an apparently deranged citizen. The murder (or as some claimed, assassination) had profound repercussions for French society and closed the final chapter of the Bourbon dynasty. The present work critiques the official coroner's reports following the assassination. The author describes himself as "Ancien Chirurgien de l'Hotel-Dieu, membre des ci-devant colleges et academie royale de Chirurgie, ancien professeur particulier d'accouchemens et membre eligible du college electoral du departement." OCLC locates 2 copies, both in France. Not in the Harvard Law Catalogue.

Daniel Bixby
Chelsea Vermont: Please see listing for details. 1821-1870 handwritten account book for Daniel Bixby (1799-1875) who lived in Chelsea Vermont and moved to Williamstown Vermont in 1826. "The property of Daniel Bixby of Chelsea County of Orange and state of Vermont" The earliest entry I found was December 1821 on page 10 for James Bradshaw. Mainly accounts for making boots and shoes, a mention of weaving pantaloons for Polly Bigelow as well as other general merchandise. According to personal research, Daniel Bixby was born in Chelsea Vermont on March 31, 1799 to Ichabod Bixby (1757-1824) and Lydia Orcutt (1756-1820). His grandfather Solomon Bixby (1732-1813) served in the Revolutionary War in the 4th Regiment Of Connecticut. He was a descendant of Nathaniel Bixby who died in Massachusetts (1694-1776) On his maternal side, Daniel Bixby descended from Daniel Orcutt (1734-1802). Father Ichabod and Lydia had 8 children. The family arrived in Chelsea around 1787. Daniel married Thirza Spiller in 1826 and they had 4 children. The Bixby family came to Vermont from Connecticut. Some names include early residents of Chelsea and Williamstown. After some research I was able to determine who some of his customers were, including many family members of the Bixbys. Polly Bigelow was daughter of Ashbel Ashbel Bigelow Born 1785, was married to Almeda Hurlbut in 1808. Ichabod Bixby most likely brother 1784-1852. was recorded living in Chelsea in 1800 Federal census James Bradshaw (1788-1841) Jeremiah Ordway Samuel Bradshaw (1790-1876) Eli Barnes (1755-1855) Solomon Bixby (1786-1829) married P … [Click Below for Full Description]

Esta America se reconocera por Nacion soberana e Independiente, y se llamara en lo sucesivo Imperio Mejicano.

The document was not ratified in Spain and O’Donoju’s power revoked, the Bourbon’s refused to send a member of the House in rejection of the declaration of independence, however it was an effectless move, which only carried as consequence Iturbide’s ascension to power –although subsequent attempts to regain power by the S … [Click Below for Full Description]
