        [PRINTED LEGAL DOCUMENT, SIGNED BY MORDECAI NOAH, ENJOINING THE RECIPIENT TO APPEAR THE NEW YORK CITY COURTHOUSE FOR JURY DUTY]

      [New York, 1821. Printed form, approximately 5 x 13 inches. Previously folded, separations along folds, with tape repairs on verso. Form completed in manuscript, signed and annotated on verso. Light dust soiling and dampstaining. Good. Mordecai Noah (1785-1851) was a diplomat, journalist, and playwright. Upon his return to the United States from consular duties in North Africa, he became a prominent leader in the Jewish political community. Noah was notable as one of the first American Jews to hold an important diplomatic post, and was ultimately removed from office for anti-Semitic reasons, prompting one of Thomas Jefferson's most impassioned pleas for religious equality, which is reprinted in Noah's most well known work, TRAVELS IN ENGLAND, FRANCE, SPAIN AND THE BARBARY STATES..., printed in 1819. Less known are his stints as sheriff, judge, and surveyor of the port in New York City under the auspices of the growing power of Tammany Hall in the early 1820s, whence the present piece of political ephemera arises. It comprises a form requiring the recipient to appear at the city courthouse to sit on the jury for a trial that took place in November 1821. The court order was executed by Noah, and is signed and annotated by him on the blank verso, "The execution of this writ appears by the hand annexed. M M Noah Sh[eri]ff." A nice piece of ephemera from one of Noah's more unfamiliar occupations.

        King Charles ye Firste Head Drawn in Optiks

      Copper engraving Image 500 x 82 mm, Plate 543 x 134 mm, Sheet 640 x 168 mm An extremely scarce, nineteenth century impression of a late seventeenth century, anamorphic portrait of King Charles I. An inscription with instruction on how to view the image, above the portrait: 'King Charles ye Firste Head Drawn in Optiks / Place the Letter A to your Eye and glance it A long.'; and the letter 'A' in the centre underneath the image. Anamorphic images have a distorted projection or perspective which requires the viewer to look at the image from a certain angle or even use a device, like for example a mirror, to correct the image. Leonardo da Vinci sparked the interest in using this technique in art with experiments like his sketch of an eye, also known as 'Leonardo's eye' c. 1485. The most well-known example of anamorphosis in art is to be found in Hans Holbein the Younger's painting 'The Ambassadors'. In this work from 1533 a diagonal, oblong shape is painted on the foreground. Only when viewed from the right does this strange shape transform into a detailed skull. Anamorphosis was also a popular tool in baroque painting. Andrea Pozzo created a masterpiece using this technique in the Church of St. Ignazio in Rome. It was not possible to build a dome for the church, so Pozzo created a perspective on the ceiling to make it look like the inside of a dome, but only if you are standing in the right spot. After the 17th century the anamorphic technique became less commonly used in fine art. It was used every now and then in caricatures and other funny prints. This kind of print is extremely rare to find today.

        MANIFIESTO QUE PARA SATISFACER AL MUNDO ENTERO DE LA CONDUCTA FRANCA Y EXCESIVAMENTE GENEROSA TENIDA POR EL GOBIERNO ESPAÑOL CON EL GEFE DE LOS DISIDENTES DE VENEZUELA

      Madrid: Imprenta de Espinosa, 1821. [2],51-89pp. Contemporary tree calf, spine gilt, gilt morocco label, raised bands. Marginal hole in titlepage, with early paper repair, not affecting text. Minor worming in gutter of last several leaves, causing separation of terminal two leaves and free endpaper from binding. About very good. A manifesto by General Don Miguel de la Torre, commander of the Spanish forces in Venezuela, declaring the honorable nature of the Spanish government's conduct toward Simón Bolívar during the 1820-21 armistice and expressing shock at Bolivar's breaking of the armistice treaty in March 1821. In 1820, in the aftermath of the Napoleonic Wars and in the midst of the South American Wars of Independence led by Simón Bolívar, Spanish liberals forced King Ferdinand the VII to accept the Constitution of 1812, which Ferdinand had repudiated shortly after his restoration to the throne in 1814. Under royal mandate Spanish commander General Pablo Morillo put the Constitution into force in the South American colonies in the summer of 1820, declared a "junta pacificadora," and began negotiating with Bolívar. On November 25, 1820, Bolívar and Morillo met and signed two treaties, one declaring a six-month suspension of hostilities, the other establishing regulations of war. By his own request, Morillo was recalled to Spain in December, and his authority was transferred to Miguel de la Torre. Less than four months after the signing of the armistice, Bolívar wrote to Torre informing him that he would recommence military action at the expiration of thirty days. In the present volume Torre reproduces and comments extensively on correspondence between Bolívar, Morillo, and himself from December 11, 1820 to March 23, 1821. He includes Bolívar's March 10 letter informing Torre of his plans to break the armistice and writes in horror at its unexpectedness, "incoheren[ce]," and disastrous implications for the Spanish army - "never," he laments, "were reason and good faith so distant" (p.84). By the time the text was printed in Madrid, it is likely that Bolívar had already advanced on Torre in Carabobo, routing the outnumbered Spanish forces with the help of the British Legion on June 24 and effectively winning the war for control of Venezuela. Palau notes that this is the second part of a larger work, MANIFIESTOS DE LA CORRSPONDENCIA QUE HA MEDIADO ENTRE LOS GENERALES... (Palau 335518), but was issued with a separate titlepage, which is present here. Neither this title nor MANIFIESTOS... is located by OCLC. Very rare, and an important record of diplomatic relations between Spain and Simón Bolívar, including significant details about Bolívar often lost to popular history. PALAU 335517.

Sight size: 16 5/8 x 22" (sight). In white gold leaf frame, close framed. 23 x 28 1/4 inches. A fine view of the junction of the Sacandaga and the Hudson from "The Hudson River Portfolio": one of the "finest collections of New York State views ever published" (Deak). The adjacent text reads: "The Hudson river receives the water of the Sacandaga, at the village of Luzerne about fourteen miles west of Sandy-Hill, and about two hundred and twenty-four from New-York. There are some considerable rapids at this place, which are dignified by the name of the Little Falls. The shores are broken and precipitous; and the natural course of the current is impeded and distracted by the large fragments of stone. The character of the scenery is a wild, ferocious, and solitary sublimity; lofty and irregular acclivities, covered with the gloomy verdure of interminable forests and glens. The forests of Luzerne are principally of white pine. The time of day represented in the engraving is morning." Cf. Deak 320; R.J. Koke Checklist of John Hill 76.

Octavo, contemporary full tan calf rebacked, original black morocco spine label, raised bands. $3700.Third edition of RicardoÂ’s most important work, the final one published in his lifetime, with revisions and amplifications to earlier editions.“David Ricardo is without doubt the greatest representative of classical political economy. He carried the work begun by Adam Smith to the farthest point possibleÂ… Ricardo, writing 50 years later than Smith, showed a greater insight in the working of the economic systemÂ… In the opinion of his own contemporaries at home and abroad, Ricardo is acknowledged the leader of the scienceÂ… His most important work is On the Principles of Political Economy and Taxation, first published in 1817” (Roll, History of Economic Thought, 155-6). “The fundamental groundwork of the Principles is based on the theory that, given free competition in trade, the exchange value of commodities will be determined by the amount of labor expended in productionÂ… [a thesis] which was given new force by the theory of distribution with which Ricardo reinforced itÂ… Ricardo was, in a sense, the first ‘scientificÂ’ economistÂ… [His work] has proved of lasting value” (PMM 277). “This is a most able, original and profound work. Its appearance formed a new era in the history of the science” (McCulloch, 16-17). Goldsmiths 23131. Lowndes, 2081. See Kress B7029. Owner signature.Some foxing; slight abrasions to covers.

        Ssufismus sive theosophia Persarum pantheistica quam e mss. Bibliothecae Regiae Berolinensis Persicis, Arabicis, Turcicis [.].

      Berlin, Ferdinand Dümmler (typis Haynianis), 1821. - 8vo. XII, 331, (1), 40 pp. (appendix printed in Arabic, Persian, and Ottoman Turkish). Contemporary papered boards with ms. spine label. First edition. - Dissertation of the German theologian August Tholuck (1799-1877), a study of Sufism and oriental Pantheism composed because an illness prevented him at the time from accepting the chair of oriental languages and Old Testament exegesis at Dorpat. "Still worth reading" (Nicholson). While Schleiermacher criticised the work as untheological, the University of Jena accorded Tholuck an honorary doctorate in 1822 on the strength of his Persian studies. As professor of Old Testament studies in Berlin and Halle, Tholuck would go on to influence many American theologians, including the Methodist John Fletcher Hurst and Philip Schaff. - A contemporary inkstain to the first few pages. Inscribed by the author on the flyleaf: "Seinem innigst verehrten 'Nomodidaskalos en Kyrio' [Greek], der ihn zu Jesu wieß / der Verf." ("To his dearly beloved Instructor of Law in the Lord, who showed him the path to Jesus, from the author"). The recipient of this gift was likely the church historian Johann August Wilhelm Neander (1789-1850), in whose collection the volume was before the entire library was acquired by the American banker Roswell S. Burrows (1798-1884) for the Rochester Theological Seminary in New York (their printed shelfmark label of "Neander Library" on the front pastedown). A good copy. ADB 38, 55. Herzog/H. XIX, 697.

        Marino Faliero, Doge of Venice [bound with] Werner, A Tragedy.

      London: John Murray, 1821. Tall octavo, missing both half-titles, 'Marino Faliero' without terminal ad.; contemporary green half morocco, gilt, Attractive volume of two important works by Byron.First edition, first issue of Marino Faliero: the Doge's speech on page 151 consists of only five and a half lines (Byron added seven new lines for the second issue) and page 154 has only twenty-one lines; in the second issue there are twenty-five lines. Set in Venice in 1355, it is the story of 'a man of talents and of courage' and, as the preface and appendix attest, of a figure who fascinated Byron.It is bound with the first edition, first issue of Werner (without imprint or 'The End' on the terminal page). Dedicated 'To the illustrious Goëthe', it is one of Byron's most important works, and again takes as its motivation the tragedy of the great man assailed by the forces of the world. Byron notes in the preface, 'When I was young (about fourteen, I think) I first read this tale, which made a deep impression on me; and may, indeed, be said to contain the germ of much that I have since written'. Rubbed at joints and extremities.

Un frontespizio ritratto. Leganti metà periodo il dolore nero negli angoli. Indietro con i nervi decorato con ferri freddi e rulli caldi e reti. Reti sulle stoviglie. Tutta la carta nuova e nero, anche se molto rara, pallido macchie dei margini sparsi. Bellissimo esemplare, ben collegato. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Première édition collective parisienne, imprimée sur les presses de Didot. Un portrait au frontispice. 8pp. de catalogue des livres en langue étrangère chez Baudry au début du tome 1. La première édition collective des poésies de Scott à Edimbourg date de 1820. Reliures en demi chagrin noir d'époque à coins. Dos à nerfs ornés de fers à froid et à chaud, de roulettes et filets. Filets sur les plats. Ensemble au papier bien frais et blanc, malgré de très rares et pâles rousseurs éparses en marges. Bel exemplaire, bien relié. Walter Scott fut célèbre en tant que poète bien avant de l'être en tant qu'inventeur du roman historique. Sa poésie fut particulièrement apprécié au début du XIXe siècle en remettant au goût du jours les anciennes ballades écossaises sur lesquelles il fonda sa poésie personnelle et romantique. Ce sont ses recherches sur l'ancienne Ecosse qui l'orientèrent peu à peu vers le roman, mais le succès de Lord Byron n'est pas non plus innocent à l'abandon progressif de la poésie dans l'oeuvre de maître écossais. Détails : Tome 1 : The Lay of the Last Minstrel. Tome 2 : Marmion. Tome 3 : The Lady of the Lake. Tome 4 : Rokeby. Tome 5 : The Lord of the Isles. Tome 6 : Thomas the Rhymer.

        A Letter to the Right Honourable Viscount Sidmouth, in Refutation of Statements made by the Hon. Henry Grey Bennet, MP in a pamphlet "On the Transportation Laws, the State of the Hulks, and of the Colonies in New South Wales".

      London: Richard Rees, 1821. Octavo; in later three-quarter brown morocco by Morrell. A handsome copy of this rare book: Governor Macquarie's only published work, which appeared in the year of his dismissal. In this important text he replies to a pamphlet by the MP Henry Grey Bennet in which Bennet complained, as part of the orchestrated campaign to unseat Macquarie as governor of New South Wales, that Macquarie had been guilty of illegal and high-handed actions, and had failed to carry out a policy really reformatory of the convicts. Macquarie's eloquent reply did not save him: after twelve years of virtual dictatorship, he was relieved of the governorship in December 1821. This was his only published work, and probably the most important text relating to Macquarie and his involvement with New South Wales.This is H.L. White's copy from the library at Belltrees. A fine copy.

This edition contains lots of information and illustrations about the journey that took place between May 1819 and October 1820. In Seeking a Northwest Passage the Hecla and Griper commanded by Parry "sailed up Baffin Bay, through the Lancaster Sound and the Barrow Strait to the south side of Melville Island where they wintered (Winter Harbour), and returned to England by the same route the next year. The expedition discovered and penetrated a short distance into Prince Regent's Inlet, discoverred Banks Island, and surveyed the south shores of Barrow Strait." Parry gives a lot of detail about all the discoveries, and how he prepared the ship for wintering. He even talks about scurvy and snow blindness, and in one of the appendices gives the reader a feel for the daily work routine. Arctic Bibliography 13145. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        MANIFIESTO QUE PARA SATISFACER AL MUNDO ENTERO DE LA CONDUCTA FRANCA Y EXCESIVAMENTE GENEROSA TENIDA POR EL GOBIERNO ESPAÑOL CON EL GEFE DE LOS DISIDENTES DE VENEZUELA

      Madrid: Imprenta de Espinosa, 1821. [2],51-89pp. Contemporary tree calf, spine gilt, gilt morocco label, raised bands. Marginal hole in titlepage, with early paper repair, not affecting text. Minor worming in gutter of last several leaves, causing separation of terminal two leaves and free endpaper from binding. About very good. A manifesto by General Don Miguel de la Torre, commander of the Spanish forces in Venezuela, declaring the honorable nature of the Spanish government's conduct toward Simón Bolívar during the 1820-21 armistice and expressing shock at Bolivar's breaking of the armistice treaty in March 1821. In 1820, in the aftermath of the Napoleonic Wars and in the midst of the South American Wars of Independence led by Simón Bolívar, Spanish liberals forced King Ferdinand the VII to accept the Constitution of 1812, which Ferdinand had repudiated shortly after his restoration to the throne in 1814. Under royal mandate Spanish commander General Pablo Morillo put the Constitution into force in the South American colonies in the summer of 1820, declared a "junta pacificadora," and began negotiating with Bolívar. On November 25, 1820, Bolívar and Morillo met and signed two treaties, one declaring a six-month suspension of hostilities, the other establishing regulations of war. By his own request, Morillo was recalled to Spain in December, and his authority was transferred to Miguel de la Torre. Less than four months after the signing of the armistice, Bolívar wrote to Torre informing him that he would recommence military action at the expiration of thirty days. In the present volume Torre reproduces and comments extensively on correspondence between Bolívar, Morillo, and himself from December 11, 1820 to March 23, 1821. He includes Bolívar's March 10 letter informing Torre of his plans to break the armistice and writes in horror at its unexpectedness, "incoheren[ce]," and disastrous implications for the Spanish army - "never," he laments, "were reason and good faith so distant" (p.84). By the time the text was printed in Madrid, it is likely that Bolívar had already advanced on Torre in Carabobo, routing the outnumbered Spanish forces with the help of the British Legion on June 24 and effectively winning the war for control of Venezuela. Palau notes that this is the second part of a larger work, MANIFIESTOS DE LA CORRSPONDENCIA QUE HA MEDIADO ENTRE LOS GENERALES... (Palau 335518), but was issued with a separate titlepage, which is present here. Neither this title nor MANIFIESTOS... is located by OCLC. Very rare, and an important record of diplomatic relations between Spain and Simón Bolívar, including significant details about Bolívar often lost to popular history. PALAU 335517.
