        THE DUPLICATE LETTERS, THE FISHERIES AND THE MISSISSIPPI. DOCUMENTS RELATING TO TRANSACTIONS AT THE NEGOTIATION OF GHENT.

      Washington: Printed by Davis and Force, 1822. - 256,3pp. Contemporary three-quarter calf and marbled boards, gilt morocco label (half chipped away). Boards rubbed, spine chipped and worn, front board nearly detached. Text tanned and foxed. Good. In a folding leather box, gilt morocco spine labels. A wonderful association copy, connecting John Quincy Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson was America's first Secretary of State and, as the country's third president, concluded the Louisiana Purchase, a diplomatic coup of the first order. John Quincy Adams, arguably America's greatest diplomatic mind, was Secretary of State from 1817 to 1825, before going on to serve as president himself, from 1825 to 1829. This book is Adams' examination of the role he played in the negotiation of the Treaty of Ghent, which resolved the War of 1812, a conflict with roots in Thomas Jefferson's presidency. This volume was in Jefferson's final library (formed between selling his second collection to the Library of Congress in 1815 and his death in 1826), and was sold at the dispersal of those books in 1829, where it was bought by a Virginia lawyer and acquaintance of Jefferson, John Peyton. John Quincy Adams compiled the documents which make up this book while he was Secretary of State, two years before he was elected President. In 1822, Adams faced mounting criticism surrounding his actions in 1814, when he was among the American negotiators who concluded the Treaty of Ghent. Adams responded with this volume, in which he brings together the correspondence and reports of the negotiations he conducted with the British to resolve the War of 1812. As ever, Adams was very sensitive to criticism, and this exhaustively defends his work. British depredations against American shipping and the American Navy (including the impressment of sailors) were constant pre-occupations of Thomas Jefferson's presidency, and they were among the root causes of the War of 1812 (prosecuted by Jefferson's successor, James Madison). Jefferson was also passionately concerned about American access to the Mississippi River, and this desire was one of his major motivations in concluding the Louisiana Purchase, the outstanding achievement of his presidency. That subject is also discussed in this book, making it of even greater interest to Jefferson. On October 11, 1822, Adams wrote to Thomas Jefferson presenting him with this copy of his book. Adams wrote: "Dear Sir, I have taken the liberty of transmitting to you a pamphlet which I have felt a necessity of giving to the public. So far as it involves a mere personal controversy I should not have thought it worthy of being presented to you. [?] much of it I would request of you the favour to overlook. Nor after the recent manifestation of the public sentiment on this subject would this collection of documents have appeared, but for the questions of general interest to the Union implicated in the discussion, and which as affecting the welfare of our country, I know can never be objects of indifference to you. It is from this motive that I am induced to ask your acceptance of the volume, and avail myself of the occasion to renew the tender of my sincere veneration." Jefferson responded to Adams with a letter from Monticello dated October 23. He returned "his thanks to Mr. Adams for the copy of the Ghent Documents which he has been so kind as to send him. So far as concerns Mr. Adams personally, the respect and esteem of the public for him was too firmly and justly fixed to need this appeal to them. But the volume is a valuable gift to his fellow citizens generally, and especially to the future historian whom it will enable to give correct ideas of the views of that treaty and to do justice to the abilities with which it was negotiated. He begs leave to salute Mr. Adams with assurances of his highest esteem and respect." Books from Jefferson's library are usually identifiable by Jefferson's method of putting a manuscript "T" before the "I" signature mark in a gathering (the letter "

        Armes et ustensiles de Californie, PL. VIII

      Paris 1822 - Louis (or Ludovik) Choris (1795-1828), a Russian of German extraction, showed a talent for natural history at a remarkably early age, and won high praise for his work on Biberstein’s journey to the Caucasus in 1813. Choris published his work, “Voyage Pittoresque Autour du Monde ” in 1822 and recall the voyage of the brig Rurik from 1815 to 1818, commanded by the Russian Otto von Kotzbue, and the expedition’s search for the Northwest Passage. Entering the Pacific via the Horn and returning to Europe via the Cape of Good Hope and St. Helena, Choris, the official artist on the expedition, was invited by the St. Petersburg Academy to accompany Kotzbue and the present work represents a fine cross section of the places that the expedition visited. Choris’s magnificent work offers important pictorial representations of the people, landscape, and artifacts of the then mysterious islands of the Pacific, California, Alaska, the northwest coast of America, and other far-off lands. This work has great American interest because of its lithographs and its account of Hawaii, California, the Queen Charlotte Islands, the Aleutians, St. Lawrence Island in the Bering Sea, and Kotzebue Island in Alaska. This expertly hand-colored lithograph from Choris’s “Voyage Pittoresque Autour du Monde ,” Armes et ustensiles de Californie, PL. VIII, measures 10.25” x 16” and is in excellent condition with a few light stain marks. Illustrated in this lithograph are weapons and utensils used by California natives for hunting and gathering, when discovered in the 1800's. The pieces include a bow, arrows held together within the carcass of an animal, and woven decorative baskets and bowls.

        Petit Careme de Massillon

      Paris - Chez Dalibon, Libraire, 1822 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Handsome full red leather binding with gilt and blind tooled detail to spine and boards. Includes portrait frontispiece. In French!Jean Baptiste Massillon (June 24, 1663 - September 28, 1742) was a French churchman and preacher, Bishop of Clermont from 1717 until his death. His popularity was probably due to the fact that in his sermons he lays little stress on dogmatic questions, but treats generally of moral subjects, in which the secrets of the human heart and the processes of man's reason are described with poetical feeling. He has usually been contrasted with his predecessor Bourdaloue, the latter having the credit of vigorous denunciation, Massillon that of gentle persuasiveness. Besides the Petit Carme, a sermon which he delivered before the young king Louis XV in 1718, his sermons on the Prodigal Son, on the small number of the elect, on death, for Christmas Day, and for the Fourth Sunday in Advent, may be perhaps cited as his masterpieces. His funeral oration on King Louis XIV is only noted now for the opening sentence: Dieu seul est grand. But in truth Massillon is singularly free from inequality. His great literary power, his reputation for benevolence, and his known toleration and dislike of doctrinal disputes caused him to be much more favourably regarded than most churchmen by the philosophes of the 18th century. Condition: The binding is tight and firm and both covers are attached. The outer hinges are very slightly starting to crack but holding firm. There is some minor wear to the extremities including some rubbing to the edges and bumping to the corners. Internally the bookis generally clean and bright apart from staining ot the first and last few pages, including the frontispiece and title page and some occasional spots in the main text. There is aprivate library plate to the front pastedown for the colleges of St Peter and paul, Prior Park, Bath..

      [Mexico City]: D. José Maria Ramos Palomera, 1822.. 62pp. Small quarto. Modern speckled calf, red gilt morocco label. Old ink stain on titlepage, not affecting text; two small worm holes, each about typeface size throughout. Else near fine. On April 11, 1822 the last Spanish flag flying in Mexican territory was removed from the plaza at Monterey. Iturbide's declaration of independence, and the subsequent bloodless transfer of power, left the new government in Mexico in dire need of information regarding the various regions of the new nation. The present book, submitted to the administrative authorities in Mexico City on July 1, 1822, only two months after independence, attempts to communicate such information as was needed to govern the western provinces, most notably Sonora and New Mexico. It contains far-reaching recommendations on how to administer the region politically, militarily, and economically. The report begins with a description of the provinces and their capitals, including Santa Fe. The essential recommendation is for greater local control over the regions. Riezgo proposes that the military chiefs live within the provinces under their jurisdiction, and that they have wide discretionary powers within the limits of the constitution. Locations for regional governmental centers are suggested, and recommendations are made for increased military fortifications. Riezgo discusses the trade between Santa Fe and St. Louis, recommends that New Mexico be exempt from taxes on trade for a period of five years, and assesses the threat to trade posed by Comanche raids. He also makes suggestions concerning the role of the clergy in the region, and reforms in the educational system. "An extremely rare work in full description of the regions at the time of Independence, with much on the natural resources, settlements, Indians, future possibilities, etc." - Eberstadt. We cannot trace another copy of this work in the marketplace. It contains more detailed information than the more famous accounts of Pino and Escuerdo, one published a decade before, the other published a decade after, this work. Neither Thomas W. Streeter nor Everett D. Graff were able to secure a copy of this report. A wide-ranging early Mexican administrative report, and an exceptional southwestern rarity. EBERSTADT 138:514.

        Ours marins dans l'ile de S. Paul, Pl. XV (Sea Lions on the Island of St. Paul)

      First Edition: Paris, Firmin Didot 1822 - Louis Choris (1795-1828) Voyage Pittoresque Autour du Monde First Edition: Paris, Firmin Didot, 1822 Lithograph with original hand coloring in good condition, some minor foxing. Sheet size: 10” x 16 1/4” This view of sea lions on the island of St. Paul, one of the Pribilof Islands, a group of four Alaskan volcanic islands located in the Bering Sea between the United States and Russia, recalls the voyage of the Rurik, 1815-1818, commanded by the Russian Otto von Kotzbue, and the expedition’s search for the Northwest Passage, entering the Pacific via the Horn and returning to Europe via the Cape of Good Hope and St. Helena. Choris, the official artist on the expedition, was invited by the St. Petersberg Academy to accompany Kotzbue and the present work represents a fine cross section of the places that the expedition visited: it includes views of Teneriffe, Brazil, Chile, the Pacific Islands, Hawaii, Kamchatka, Philippines, the Cape of Good Hope and Saint Helena. Choris’ magnificent work offers important pictorial representations of the people, landscape, and artifacts of the then mysterious islands of the Pacific, California, Alaska, the northwest coast of America, and other far-off lands. This work has great American interest because of its lithographs and its account of Hawaii, California, the Queen Charlotte Islands, the Aleutians, St. Lawrence Island in the Bering Sea, and Kotzebue Island in Alaska. The lithographs are of all aspects of native life and culture. After the voyage of the Rurik, Choris went to Paris to continue work for Voyage Pittoresque Autour du Monde. Seized by an irresistible craving for adventure, Choris left France in 1827 for South America. He met his end when he was murdered by robbers on March 22, 1828, en route to Vera Cruz, Mexico.

        TRAVELS IN THE INTERIOR OF SOUTHERN AFRICA

      London: Longman, Hurst, Reese, Orme, and Brown, 1822; 1824. 2 volumes. Rare First edition, and a set with fine provenance. Extensively illustrated with 10 very fine hand-coloured plates, 3 of which are large folding panoramic vignettes, 50 engraved vignettes and a huge folding map in the first volume, 10 hand-coloured plates, 2 of which are folding panoramas, and 46 engraved vignettes in the second, a total of 20 hand-coloured plates. 4to, in handsome full polished calf of the period, the boards with central gilt tools of famed banker and antiquarian Hudson Gurney (1775-1864) and double gilt fillet lines at the borders, the spine featuring elaborately gilt tooled panel designs within the compartments, elaborately gilt borders and central ornamental tools, the raised bands gilt, two red morocco labels lettered and ruled in gilt, end-leaves renewed, board edges gilt rolled, turn-ins stippled in blind. [xii], 582, 4; [iv], 648. A very handsome and desirable set, the paper quite fresh with only a hint of minor and very occasional foxing, the colourplates fresh and bright, the very large folding map in pleasing condition, the bindings handsome and in good order and with minor aging, the hinges sometime strengthened and restored incorporating the original spine panels. "The most valuable and accurate work on South Africa published up to the first quarter of the nineteenth century, and embracing a description of a large part of the Cape Colony and Bechuanaland at this period... The illustrations in the volumes are characterized by great beauty and accuracy... The work is now extremely scarce, many copies having been broken up in the middle of the nineteenth century for the plates." - Mendelssohn. This copy includes the &#147;Hints to Emigration&#148;, which is bound in the end of Volume I. The location of this separately printed addition varies and is listed differently in the Abbey copy, British Museum copy and Tooley copy and does not have the half titles. Our copy is matching the Abbey copy. This copy has the half-page errata slip at the beginning of Volume I, which is not found in all copies.<br> William Burchell travelled in South Africa between 1810 and 1815 making one of the greatest scientific explorations of his day. He collected over 50,000 specimens, and covered over 7000 km, much of which was over completely unexplored terrain. The description of his journey, Travels in the Interior of Southern Africa, appeared in 1822 and 1824 and is now highly prized and of great scarcity. There is little doubt that a third volume was planned, since the second volume ends long before completion of his journey.<br> On 25 August 1815 he sailed from Cape Town with 48 crates of specimens aboard the vessel "Kate", calling at St. Helena and arriving back at Fulham on 11 November 1815. He traveled in Brazil between 1825 and 1830, again collecting a large number of specimens, including over 20,000 insects. The journals covering his Brazil expedition are missing, as are his diaries relating to his later travels. His field note books, detailing his plant collections, survive at Kew, and from those the latter part of his trip can be reconstructed.<br> His collection of plants, skins, skeletons, insects, seeds, bulbs and fish is considered to be the most extensive ever made in Africa, before or since. After his death by suicide, the bulk of his plant specimens went to Kew and the insects to Oxford University Museum. He is known for the copious and accurate notes he made to accompany every collected specimen, detailing habit and habitat, as well as the numerous drawings and paintings of landscapes, portraits, costumes, people, animals and plants.

Overall, a very good, tight and clean copy. In 1805, naturalist and explorer William J. Burchell "was appointed by the East India Company &#145;schoolmaster and acting botanist&#146; at the island of St Helena. While there he made the acquaintance of General Janssens, the last Dutch governor of the Cape, and of Dr Martin Lichtenstein, then a young physician on the governor&#146;s staff, and afterwards a celebrated Berlin naturalist. Furnished with letters of introduction from them to the chief Dutch and German residents, Burchell set off to the Cape with the intention of exploring the interior of South Africa. A party of Hottentots were his sole companions and assistants in more than three years of exploration, during which he made large collections of mammalia.He only published the first part of his Travels in the Interior of Southern Africa (1822-24), a book written in excelent style and illustrated from his own drawings" (Prideaux).

Generally speaking, Burchell appears to have been favourably impressed by the Boers.The author&#146;s name is perpetuated in the country by the appellation of &#145;Burchell&#146;s Zebra&#146; (equus burchelli), a species of quagga discovered by him &#145;in the country immediately to the north of the Orange River.he was also the first to mention the existence of asbestos in this part of the country. The illustrations in the volumes are characterized by great beauty and accuracy, and it is stated in the Preface that, &#145;in order to ensure greater correctness in the vignettes, the author has made all these drawings upon the blocks themselves&#146;; the coloured plates are particularly admired, and the drawings from which they were engraved were prepared with great care by the artist, and were untouched by any other hand.

(Mendelssohn) Some of the panoramic views were executed on the then practically unknown principle of scenographic projection on the surface of a revolving cylinder. The work covers Burchell's explorations in 1811 and 1812. A third volume relating his travels from 1812 to 1815 was projected but never published. In all Burchell claimed that his African collections consisted of 63,000 natural objects, 500 drawings, and a mass of astronomical, meteorological, and other observations and notes. A selection of his specimens were presented to the British museum following his return and are now in South Kensington. Abbey, Travel, 327. Mendelssohn I p. 224. Prideaux pp. 239 & 329. Tooley 116.

The first Jesuits' edition was published in Geneva in 1739-1742 and the second in 1760. These so-called Jesuits' editions (so-called because the editors were really Minims) are valued because of their copious commentary, and also because they contain additional works by Bernoully, Maclarin, and Euler which represent all that was done on the theory of tides between the publication of Newton's Principia and the investigations of Laplace.

        Advertisement for T. Cotterell & Co., Chronometer Makers, announcing an award granted by the Board of Admiralty to Cotterell for its performance at the Public Trials, Royal Observatory, Greenwich.

      London: 1822 - Ca. 1822. The advertisement for the London chronometer makers reads: "The Honorable Board of Admiralty Awarded T. Cotterell & Co. a Prize of 200 Pounds for the Extraordinary Accuracy of the Performance of their Chronometer, the actual Variation on its Rate in 12 Months being only 70 Hundredth Parts of a Second". It goes on to say that the Admiralty purchased several of the chronometers "for their superior performance on the Public Trials at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich. . Cotterell have also been liberally encouraged by the Swedish Government, And by many Scientific Navigators". Chronometers at the time played a critical role in navigation at sea, having been recently introduced as the best method to determine exact longitude. Chronometers made by Kendall were used as early as the 1770's in Captain Cook's expeditions; and by Capt. John Ross in expeditions to the Arctic. Another Kendall chronometer was used by Lieutenant Matthew Flinders in expedition to Australia in 1801. The Public Trials referred to in this advertisement commenced in 1820. By 1850 reliable and inexpensive marine chronometers were widely available and replaced the lunar distance method of measuring longitude. 5 3/4 x 5 1/2". Text in black on white paper; paper toned, edges slightly ruffled, o/w very good.

        Print of The Trial of "Bill Burn," Under Martin's Act

      P. Mathews, London 1822 - A donkey serves as a witness in a British court in this satirical scenario of the prosecution of his owner under the landmark Martin's Act, a statute enacted in Britain the year this print was made, to protect animals from abuse. Sponsored by Member of Parliament Richard Martin of Galway (1754-1834), the law focused on farm animals such as cattle, horses and sheep, making it an offense for anyone--even the owner--to abuse, beat or mistreat these animals. Initially, advocates against animal cruelty had difficulty enforcing the law, as magistrates were reluctant to convict offenders. In this picture, the donkey is in the courtroom, relieved of its burden of baskets of produce, which are on the floor, while the owner thumbs his nose. The name of "Bill Burn," given to the donkey's owner in this print, appears to be a joke on what the satirist sees as the fate of Martin's "bill"; the presence of the donkey suggests the law is viewed by many as being asinine. Generally very good with the usual light toning, soiling, wear, soft creases. Small bit of adhered paper residue in the top right corner, a very faint, small water stain in the extreme right margin and light soiling in the margins. To see details, contact us.
