        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM THOMAS JEFFERSON TO THOMAS SULLY, EXPRESSING THANKS AND DISCUSSING A BOOK ORDER BEING SENT TO PARIS IN 1821].

      Monticello, Va. April 17, 1821. - [1]p., matted and framed with a later engraved portrait of Jefferson, the whole measuring 14 3/4 x 21 1/4 inches. Previously folded. Slightly browned, but overall a fine example. A friendly letter from Thomas Jefferson to the renowned American portraitist Thomas Sully, thanking the artist for gifts recently received, and agreeing to add a special request to a forthcoming book order being sent to Paris. Sully visited Jefferson at Monticello in March 1821 for the purpose of composing a portrait commissioned by the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, established by Jefferson during his presidency. The gifts mentioned at the outset of the letter are no doubt a token of thanks for the artist's two weeks residence at Jefferson's estate. Sully apparently also requested that Jefferson seek out two books on architecture for him, the RECEUIL ET PARALLÈLE DES ÉDIFICES DE TOUT GENRE by Jean- Nicolas-Louis Durand and POMPEIANA by William Gell and John P. Gandy on the ruins and ongoing excavations at Pompeii. Jefferson here agrees to add the RECEUIL. to his forthcoming order to Paris booksellers, but informs Sully that the second title should be obtainable in the United States. The letter reads as follows: "Dear Sir, I have duly received your favor of the 5th & also the half dozen cups which you have been so kind as to have forwarded to me, for which accept my thanks. Ellen will express to you herself her obligations for what was addressed to her. I am this day writing to Paris for some books and gladly place among them the Recueil of M. Durand, which I presume was published there. for the Pompeiana I shall depend on our own bookstores. accept my sincere wishes for your happiness and success in all your undertakings and the assurance of my friendly esteem & respect." A fine Jefferson letter that touches on his book collecting habits as well as the production of a famous portrait of the third President.

        The poetical works of Sir Walter Scott

      A. et W. Galignani|& P. Didot 1821 - - A. et W. Galignani & P. Didot, à Paris 1821, in-16 (10x17,5cm), 7 volumes reliés. - 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. Tome 7 : The Vision of Don Roderick - Halidon Hill - Ballads, and Miscellaneous Pieces. 2 ex libris, Miss Odell et Blanche de Chateaumorand. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] First Parisian collective edition, printed on the presses of Didot. A portrait frontispiece. Binders half black shagreen contemporary in corners. Back with nerves decorated with cold irons and hot rollers and nets. Nets on the boards. All the fresh and white paper, although very rare, pale scattered spots in margins.

        History of The Persecutions e

      London - xii, 613pp. 1821 - Both volumes bound in one as usualof Colonel Mark Wilks' sought after book. First edition. With a colouredillustrated map. Direct from the Regency library of Elizabeth Greenly, later Lady Elizabeth Coffin Greenly. Elizabeth Greenly, born at Titley Court, Herefordshire, was a noted and varied collector. She kept prolific diaries from 1784 until her death in 1839 which included her responses to current events and occasions in her daily life. Among the diaries many names and anecdotes of celebrities of the time appear, including Lord Byron, Marie Atoniette, Mary Wollstonecraft and Hannah More. She was known to comment on customs of foreign countries to which she and her friends had travelled, and had a keen interest in scientific discoveries and advancements including medicine and archaelogy. The Greenly library contents show Elizabeth Greenly's numerous interests including: Welsh causes, Science, topography, travel, Bibliana and literature, particularly female poets. The library contains many first editions of contemporary works, and many are signed or contain her bookplate. The library contained over 1000 volumes which show the diversity and depth of her interests and give an insight into the life of this fascinating collector. These works come directly from the sale of the Titley Court estate. Wilks' history begins with an analysis of the Huguenot situation after the Edict of Nantes, an edictgranting the Hugenots religious, political and military autonomy. Each chapter discusses different stages of the Protestants in France, such as the start of the revolution, Napoleon's arrival, and ending with the persecution of M Madier. Colonel Mark Wilkswrote severalhistoricalworkson countries worldwide. He was an administrator for theEast India Company amdworked in southern India. He was also the governor of SaintHelena for three years. Condition: In a half calf binding. Externally, generally smart. Loss to spine label and rubbing to boards. Front joint is starting but firm. Hinges are strained but firm. Prior owner's bookplate to front pastedown, E H Greenly. Internally, generally firmly bound though strained in places. Ink inscription to title page. Scattered spots to first and last few pages, otherwise the odd spot throughout. Overall: VERY GOOD. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        ALMANACH LYRIQUE DES DAMES

      Paris: Chez Louis Janet, [1821]. This delightful little jewel is irresistible in every way, perhaps especially as a glimpse into the world of a privileged young lady in the France of the Bourbon Restoration. The British Library holds a similar binding (shelfmark c108bb8) on an almanac also printed in 1821 by Janet with the cover title "Almanach des Demoiselles" (Almanac for Young Ladies). Unlike the pocket calendars intended for men of business, there are no dull lists of currencies, commercial laws, or government officials. Instead, the calendar here is prefaced by pages of light romantic poetry, accompanied by engravings of fashionably attired women, which the owner could have perused in moments of leisure, as a modern woman might distract herself with her smart phone. Its ephemeral nature and the fragility of the binding make this a remarkable survival--especially in such a fine state.. 103 x 61 mm. (4 x 2 1/2"). 48 pp., [12] leaves. A CHARMING "FIXÉ SOUS VERRE" BINDING, both covers with an engraving of a putto playing a harp--that on the front hand colored--"fixed" (i.e., painted) under thin plates of glass, the glass boards with a gilt frame made of heavy gilt paper embossed with a pearl pattern and incorporating floral cornerpieces, flat spine of gilt paper in a striated design, blue endpapers, all edges gilt. With six engraved plates of romantic heroines, title page of calendar section with engraved vignette, page for each month with a small vignette landscape set within a garland, engraved folding calendar for the year 1822, each month headed by a zodiac sign. A touch of rubbing to extremities, otherwise A VERY FINE SPECIMEN, the fragile binding beautifully preserved, the contents clean and fresh.

        The Plough Boy. By Henry Homespun. (And Journal of the Board of Agriculture. By SolomonSouthwick. Volume One, No. 1, - to- Volume Two, No.37.

      1819-1821. - 4to,30cm, in 2 volumes, 416 & 298pp., some text illustrations, printed inthree columns, in the original marbled boards, heavily worn, rebacked inbrown library cloth, hinges are cracked, volume one damp stained in thefore margin of the text. Volume one, hinges tight, first page (an index,probably laid in), is damaged as is the last page, the somewhat acidicpaper often used in periodical during the era, is about average, housedin a fold-over clamp shell box, in dark blue book cloth, with doubleblack and red labels, marbled interior, With a presentation on the insideboard of volume one in ink: Lord Dalhousie's best Compt. to PhilemonWright, Esq. Copies of "The Plough Boy" are very rare and the value isincreased not only as an association copy of Lord Dalhousie but also forthe pioneering Wright family. Provenance: B.R. Mackay. The two rarevolumes. were presented to Phileman Wright for his WrightvilleAgricultural library by Lord Dalhousie - Library book numbers 111 & 112on small paper spine labels, . were bound by Lord Dalhousie (probablyhad done) for Philemon Wright who solicited a donation of books from himwhen he was with his Excellency in Quebec, Dec. 16, 1820. . At thebottom of page 378, vol 1 of the Plough Boy, there is a coment by LordDalhousie (in pencil) on the article entitled "Flemish Husbandry" witha comparative table of produce of Flemish and English farmers, LordDalhousie remarks as follows: It is not the bleak mountains of Scotlandthat have progressed so much beyond the Agriculture of England, but therich Lowlands south of the mountains. On the contrary the System offallowing is the Scottish practice and is readily exploited in England. - to Sir John Sinclair the above comparative table is not very explicitand there appears to be in it some Flemish crop errors not -redley(?).'The Plough Boy", a pioneer American agricultural weekly magazinepublished in Albany, first appeared in June 1819. The editor originallylisted as Henry Homespun, Jr. was the pseudonym for Solomon Southwick(1773-1839), whose name appeared in the magazine title in Volume 1,number 34 with the added title, "The Plough Boy and Journal of the Boardof Agriculture". The periodical had been selected as the official organof the Board of Agriculture for the State of New York. A very popularperiodical, it was printed for over twenty years. Philemon Wright(1760-1839) created the first permanent settlement in the Ottawa Valleyregion in 1800 on the north side of the Ottawa River. It became aprimarily agricultural community covering what is now the city ofGatineau and Aylmer. At about 37,000 acres it became the most developedfarming area in Lower Canada. Farms included Gateno, Columbia Falls,Columbia, Britannia, Chaudiere and Dalhousie Farm. Wright shared aninterest with Lord Dalhousie in the development and improvement ofagriculture in Canada. Certainly a library of agricultural books wouldhave been of prime interest to Wright. George Ramsay, 9th Earl ofDalhousie, was recognized as having an ardent interest in agriculturalimprovement and was noted as inspiring the formation of agriculturalsocieties throughout the Colonies. He obviously had studied "The PloughBoy" and on page 381 of Volume I, as noted above. In Nova Scotia, LordDalhousie was a friend and supporter of Scottish agricultural writer,John Young, who dedicated his book, on improving Canadian agriculture,"Letters of Agricola" (Halifax, 1822) to the Governor-General. Dr. B.R.MacKay, had a long career at the Geological Survey, (1907-1953). He wasa valued member of the Ottawa Historical Society and was known forleading the campaign to save historical buidings or sites. He had so manybooks in his large house it began to sink under the weight. He donatedmany articles to the Bytown museum and claimed among his prizes thepresent set of books, a rope that Wright had used to tie his first timberraft, etc. He also had Sir John A. Mcdonald's desk, and carried a pictureshowing the desk in J.A.'s his library. He ha [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      Published & Sold by Edwd Orme, Publisher to the King, Bond Street, Corner of Brook Street,, London, 1821 - Hyde Park Engraving and etching with aquatint and original hand colour. George IV is shown travelling through Hyde Park in a carriage, the year after he became king. The riders and walkers in the park are lifting their hats in greeting and respect. George had spent a long time waiting for the throne. He had been acting as Prince Regent since 1810, after his father George III was stricken by mental illness. The Prince Regent resented his father for not giving him enough money, sending his brothers away for their education, and for making him marry his cousin, Caroline of Brunswick, whom he separated from as soon as they had a child together. He retaliated during his regency by taking several mistresses, the most famous amongst them Maria Fitzherbert, and spending lavishly on grandiose projects like the Brighton Pavilion.George IV enjoyed Hyde Park, and soon after he came to the throne he initiated a plan of improvements, including a new entrance at Hyde Park Corner, railings and John Rennie's bridge over the Serpentine.

Moderate toning, minor edgewear to a few leaves, light foxing and presentation inscription to title page, final leaf signed by Convention Secretary Benjamin Pollard. * First edition. Presented to the Essex Historical Society, this copy is inscribed in the third person "from Hon Judge Story." The great Supreme Court justice was member of the convention to amend to Massachusetts Constitution. Mel A. Topf in wrote about Story's importance at the Convention: "Story brought his prestige and leadership, together with his considerable political and legal skills, to what was for him and his allies at the convention the overriding mission: to save the Massachusetts frame of government from the democratizing forces (or from radicalism, the term Story used) that were threatening the Republic itself. It would be difficult to overemphasize the centrality of this mission to Story's theory of the judiciary. Story, along with Daniel Webster and others, led the conservative faction toward its goal of creating an alliance to protect the Massachusetts constitution from democratic extremes of the radicals, whose program was the convention's main agenda." An excellent association connecting Joseph Story to a critical event in his judicial career in Massachusetts.

        [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.

        The Junction of the Sacandaga and Hudson Rivers [No. 2 of the Hudson River Port Folio]

      New York and Charleston: H. I. Megarey & W. B. Gilly New York & John Mill Charleston SC, 1821. Aquatint, coloured by hand, by John Hill, after W.G. Wall. Printed by Rollinson. 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.

        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.
