        Jackson on a Creek War Expedition to Pensacola, Politics, and a Friend Who He Hopes Will Stay Sober and Pursue his Profession

      Nashville, TN 1823 - Autograph Letter Signed, to Richard K. Call. "The Hermitage," near Nashville, Tenn., February 3, 1823. 3 pp, 8 1/4 x 12 3/4 in., on two conjoined sheets. With address leaf in Jackson's hand, and light partial "NASH.T. FEB 5" postmark. "if he does this he will & must succeed . this prudent course will ensure him wealth & respectability"Writing to comrade-in-arms Richard Call, Jackson discusses cattle procurement for his troops in the Creek War in Florida: "On my march to Pensacola a fresh trail of Cattle was discovered diverting its course. The Spanish guard at Capt. Bayles was surprised & captured & six Indians killed." Jackson was still concerned with the rightful owners being paid.Recognition as a hero after the War of 1812, especially his victory over the British at the Battle of New Orleans, catapulted Jackson into the political arena. Here, soon-to-be U.S. Senator Jackson looks for support from Alabama. Turning to the topic of a mutual friend, Captain Easter, Jackson urges recipient Call to encourage Easter to stay sober and focus on his career. Transcript Hermitage Febry 3rd 1823Dear Call I have just recd your letter of the 22nd Decbr last, and of yours of the 15th of the same month accompanying one from Mr. Manuel, with his memorial and affidavits. These I have prepared to forward to Major [John Henry] Eaton [Jackson's future Secretary of War and protagonist in the "Petticoat Affair" scandal] although I have just recd his letter advising me that he has recd one from you on the subject of those claims, and stating that it is useless to forward them. - in looking over the letters & reports of Sept. Octbr & November 1814, and Col. Bentons [later Sen. Thomas Benton] communications who in Sept. & October commanded at Ft. Montgomery - Capt. Bayles & Mr Collins came up under the pretext of buying Cattle; about that time, all the Cattle in the neighbourhood of Chrispo Cowpens west side of the Perdedo was carried away by Indians, and great quantities from Alabama River above Ft. Montgomery. Two persons exerted that Mr Collins & Bayles were endeavouring to obtain supplies for the Indians & British - Bayles was confined & sent to Mobile, and I believe Collins was also detained, as it was reported--he was contractor for furnishing Pensacola with Beef -On my march to Pensacola a fresh trail of Cattle was discovered diverting its course toward Pensacola, The Spanish guard at Capt. Bayles was surprised & captured & six Indians killed, and Bayles taken by me as a guide - There we received information that this drove of Cattle had been secreted in a bend of the Perdedo on the East side, a detachment was sent after them with orders to pursue the trail, collect and bring them in - This order was executed - the cattle delivered to the contractor with orders to kill for the army - such as - might be fit & to issue it to the army on proper returns, to keep the marks & brands, and pay the owners for the beef slaughtered, and return the stock cattle to the proper owners - The greater part of those cattle were claimed by citizens of the United States, returned to them, and those slaughtered paid for by the contractor or reported to me; These cattle having been drove from the Territory of the U. States, their trail followed & regained, should any of Mr. Manuels Cattle have been found with them, and slaughtered, the contractor having got full returns for the Beef & ordered to pay for it, will have to be looked to for remuneration - all these facts are before congress if the call is made & Col. Benton in the Senate - Therefore I have no idea that the claim will be admitted. - Major Blue commanded the Indians, I never heard that a solitary horse had been brought away by them - and indeed it is not likely that thered sticks [Creek Indians]- would leave any Horses west of the escambia When they had so much use for them, and when they had sole control & possession of that country .

He settled in Australia in 1841 and is considered to be a pioneering figure in that country's musical history. Elizabeth Wood in Grove Music Online.

        Narrative of a Voyage Round the World, in the Uranie and Physicienne Corvettes, commanded by Captain Freycinet, during the years 1817, 1818, 1819 and 1820

      London: Treuttel and Wurtz, 1823. Quarto, 2 parts in 1, folding frontispiece map and 25 lithograph plates, occasional spotting of plates and offsetting to a few pages, repair to top margin on pp 35 without loss; later three-quarter tan morocco, raised panelled spine, marbled edges with the bookplate of the noted Pacific collector, Frederick E. Ellis. The artist's account of the Freycinet voyage to Australia and the PAcific. The first edition in English of this private narrative of the 1817-1820 Freycinet expedition to Australia and the Pacific - in fact the first appearance in English of any account of the voyage. Originally published in French, Arago's book in its many subsequent editions became one of the voyage best-sellers of the nineteenth century. The huge multi-volume official account of the voyage was far more serious and scientific in tone.Arago was the official artist on the voyage, and the lithograph plates here are all after his own drawings. His introduction sets the tone of the book. "During our long voyage I became acquainted with the numerous tribes; hunted with the Brasilian and the Guanche, danced with the negroes of Africa, and slept under the hut of the Sandwich Islander... I sat at their hospitable tables; and everywhere welcomed, I everywhere contributed my share by a cheerful gaiety, or the present of some European trifles".His narrative is highly readable, not least because he entirely avoids the conventional forms of the voyage narrative, ignoring the 'eternal repetition of winds, currents, longitude and lattitude'. Long portions relate to Australia, with descriptions of Sydney, the Blue Mountains, and of meetings with Governor Macquarie and John Oxley. There is also a long account (almost 100 pages) of their stay in Hawaii at a crucial period in the history of the islands, and of Guam and the Mariannas.Full of wry humour, the book takes the form of a series of letters to a friend, and it has been suggested that the letters may originally have been written to Arago's brother François, the famous scientist. Certainly it is the intimacy of their personal and anecdotal tone that makes them not only so enjoyable to read today but such a fascinating source of the more minute details of life, especially in New South Wales and Hawaii. The illustrations match the text in tone: these are not the formal depictions that characterise the beautiful atlases of the full official account of the voyage, but much more informal, always charming and in some cases quite eccentric.Despite the clear evidence of the 'Directions for placing the Plates' present here, there has been some unnecessary confusion about the collation of this book. Ferguson omitted the map from his plate count, while Hill erroneously called for a map and 26 plates. This copy, with the map and 25 plates is complete.

        Set of the three Reports of Inquiry

      1822-, House of Commons 1823 - Folio, the three works bound together; some foxing; old quarter calf, rubbed, rebacked retaining original spine, vellum corners. Full set of the Bigge reports. A fine set of the series of reports of the official enquiry into Governor Macquarie's administration of New South Wales, comprising:1) Report of the Commissioner of Inquiry into the State of the Colony (here in its first issue of June 1822, with the libel against William Wentworth. This first issue was withdrawn and is now rare. It was later reprinted on August 5 1822).2) Report of the Commissioner of Inquiry on Judicial Establishments (February 1823).3) Report of the Commissioner of Inquiry on Agriculture and Trade (March 1823).John Thomas Bigge was appointed Royal Commissioner, with sweeping powers, by Lord Bathurst - ostensibly to examine the transportation system, but in fact to cast a critical eye over every aspect of Macquarie's controversial administration. Bigge was unyielding in his critique and relations between the two were strained. However, by the time his reports were published, Macquarie had already resigned.Bigge's reports were central to the political history of the 1820s, and their influence can be seen in the later constitutional and political history of Australia. Indeed, it was as a result of Bigge's recommendations that the New South Wales Act of 1823 was ratified, authorising the establishment of a Supreme Court and Legislative Council in New South Wales, as well as a Supreme Court in Van Diemen's Land, and marked an important step towards responsible government in the colonies.Bigge's reports are also essential sources for information about conditions in New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land in the 1820s, not least because of his recognition of the growing importance of the colonies for wealthy free settlers. Bigge had urged the Colonial Office to seek places away from Sydney both to send intractable offenders and to encourage free settlement by releasing land for graziers. It was as a direct result of his report that the Moreton Bay area was first explored with a view to future settlement. Consequently, Oxley was commissioned by Brisbane to reconnoitre the north coast. He explored Moreton Bay and named the Brisbane River; his report ultimately led to the foundation of the Moreton Bay colony.

        Outlines of a System of Political Economy;

      London: Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy,, 1823. Written with a View to prove to Government and the Country, that the Cause of the present agricultural Distress is entirely artificaial; and to suggest a Plan for the Management of the Currency, by which it may be remidied now, and any recurrence of similar evils be prevented in future: together with the fourth edition of an Essay on the Principles of Banking. Octavo (214 × 127 mm). Contemporary half calf and pebble grained cloth, spine ruled and lettered gilt in compartments, marbled endpapers and edges, silk ribbon place marker. Joints and corners lightly rubbed; an excellent copy. First edition of a work "designed to be a fairly general work on economics but one which led to what Joplin saw as the central issue of macroeconomic stability" (O'Brien, p. 14), what is now famously known as the "currency principle", that a mixed (metallic and paper) currency should fluctuate exactly as a purely metallic currency would. Although the basic idea is to be found in Ricardo and, before him, Adam Smith and Hume, "Joplin was the first to propose a 100 per cent reserve system of banking, the idea being to make money interest behave as it would behave with a purely metallic currency, and to render the creation of bank currency ?- the creation of means of payment of bank currency ?- impossible" (Schumpeter, p. 723n). Born in Newcastle, Thomas Joplin (1790??-1847) is best known for his first book, An Essay on the General Principles and Present Practice of Banking (1822), reprinted in the present work as an appendix, which was 'a plea for the establishment of joint-stock banks like those operating in Scotland' (O'Brien, p. 12); this was a cause which he promoted throughout the rest of his life. The currency principle was to become one of the central policy proposals for the Currency School (including Lord Overstone, James Ramsay McCulloch, Mountifort Longfield, and a converted Robert Torrens) in its wranglings with the Banking School (Thomas Tooke, John Fullarton, and the young John Stuart Mill) in the 1840s, a period which saw a re-emergence of the Bullionist debate of the century's first two decades after the 1844 Banking Act which, though not requiring parity between note issue and gold reserves, gave the Bank of England a monopoly on the issue of banknotes.

        Three important ALSs from the 1820s

      [Paris] 1823 - Three autograph letters, 260 x 195 mm., some browning; very good. The Comte de Lauraguais, old friend of Sir Joseph Banks, still dazzlingly witty at 90. Three interesting and witty letters written by an elderly Comte de Lauraguais, providing a revealing glimpse of the exalted scientific circles in which he still moved. This small cache of letters represents a rare opportunity to gain a better understanding of the enigmatic Count, and includes a particularly good letter to Prince Pierre d'Arenberg, his grandson.Louis Léon Félicité, comte de Lauraguais, duc de Brancas (1733-1824) was a French aristocrat and accomplished chemist, now remembered for his friendship with Sir Joseph Banks. In early 1772 Lauraguais had angered his friend by attempting to publish an account of the Endeavour voyage based on a letter written by Banks, only for Banks to personally seize it from the printer and have all but one copy burnt (that single copy is now one of the treasures of the State Library of New South Wales). Lauraguais had a lifelong interest in the sciences and in voyages of discovery particularly, making the present letters, written when he was almost 90 years of age, a moving testament to his reputation. Hordern House have only once previously handled any manuscript material relating to Lauraguais.The three letters are as follows:Single page to the Chevalier de Rébourguil, 6 May 1822. Lauraguais reflects disarmingly on his long life and his old age, mentioning his old friend Voltaire, and the "spirits coming out of their tombs" as he reflects on former times. The letter was sent to his "good and old" friend the Chevalier de Rébourgil, undoubtedly connected to the town of that name in the Midi-Pyrénées. One-and-a-half pages to M. Bouillon-Lagrange, 3 July 1822. Edme-Jean Baptiste Bouillon-Lagrange (1764-1844) was a professor and later the director of the Ecole de pharmacie in Paris. He had evidently written to the Comte to discuss news relating to chemistry, as he has replied in a witty and self-deprecating way, thanking Bouillon-Lagrange for his kind words and the indulgence with which he has discussed his work, but that he now not only doesn't have a laboratory but in fact barely a kitchen. Lauraguais nonetheless looks forward to meeting him as an old colleague in chemistry.Four pages to his grandson Prince Pierre d'Arenberg, 26 May 1823. Easily the most substantial and personal of the three letters, it is written to the Prince in Marseille, and makes mention of the "Princesse de Poix" (presumably Anne Louise Marie de Beauvau-Craon, the dowager of Philippe-Louis de Noailles, duc de Poix). The letter shows Lauraguais still moving effortlessly through the beau monde - including a reference to his old friend Rébourgil, the recipient of the earlier letter in this group, as an old "ultra" who is still enjoying his health after some 60 years - and concluding with the hope that the Prince will come and see him soon. Pierre d'Arenberg (1790-1877) was the son of Lauraguais' daughter, Pauline Louise Antoinette Candide Felicite de Brancas-Villars de Lauraguais (1755-1820).

        A vintage albumen paper photograph (a cabinet card, image size 142 x 102 mm) mounted on the original card, with 'F. Duryea Photo Artist' printed on the bottom margin. 'A Dentist' is handwritten (unnecessarily!) on the verso in ballpoint pen; this impressive image leaves nothing to the imagination

      - Quite the opposite, in fact: the gentleman standing behind his extensive array of implements and dentures, looks more like a ringmaster, with his hair below the shoulders of his velvet smoking jacket with quilted silk lapels . Townsend Duryea (1823-1888) was one of the most significant early photographers of South Australia; he was married three times, and had twelve children. 'Several of his sons and grandsons became photographers' (Australian Dictionary of Biography). Four sons - Townsend Jr., Edwin, Richard and Frank - are noted as photographers on the Photohistory SA website, and we presume 'F. Duryea' is Frank Duryea (1861-1936). Interestingly, there is no record of F. or Frank Duryea in the standard register of nineteenth century Australian photographers, 'The Mechanical Eye in Australia' by Davies and Stanbury (1985), although the other three are listed. Only two images attributed to Frank Duryea are recorded on Trove. One is a routine group portrait of 'SA Railways employees' (1920). The other is clearly wrongly credited to him, as it is a carte de visite of Fanny (Frances Ann) Todd, dated 1865, when Frank Duryea was just four years old . The present photograph (undated but circa 1890s) is in fine condition; the verso of the card has slight surface abrasions to the corners where it has been removed from an album.

He served with distinction (and was unharmed) in the Peninsular war. He missed Waterloo, but was severely wounded in a minor Spanish revolution in 1823. In the years before (and after) this, he travelled widely in Europe, and mixed with artistic and literary circles; the material in this book stems from this period. He was appointed the first Surveyor-General of South Australia in February 1836; in December of that year he determined the site of Adelaide, and his plan gave the city its belt of parklands. He died from tuberculosis in October 1839. Edward Angas Johnson (1873-1951) was an Adelaide medical practitioner, prominent in public health circles; his grandmother was a daughter of George Fife Angas. 'His hobby was collecting curios and historical relics, especially those relating to South Australian history. This remarkable collection and his library were distributed to public institutions before his death' (all biographical details from the Australian Dictionary of Biography).

      Two letters from the architect C. R. Cockerell to François Mazois regarding the publication of "Les Ruines de Pompéi" dated August 28 1823 resp. April 8 1824. 8vo. Each with (4) pp, one with seal and address.The English architect and archaeologist Charles Robert Cockerell (1788-1863) took part in the excavations of the Temple of Aphaea in Aegina in 1811 and he was to become an important promoter in the archaeological field. He is nowdays -as an archaeologist- perhaps most remembered for removing the reliefs from the temple of Apollo at Bassae, which are now in the British Museum. When Cockerell returned from Greece he stayed with Gell in Naples, where they planned to write a book on Pompeii together, and he visited Pompeii with both Gell and in June 1815 with Mazois, whom he had met earlier in 1815 in Rome. In these two fine letters he tries to encourage Mazois that he must continue with the publishing of his monumental work on Pompeii. Cockerell has just received the first "livraison". Mazois (1783-1826) was finally able to publish the first two parts of the work, while the remaining parts were published by Franz Christian Gau

        Autograph Manuscript of his speech in Parliament on the English response to the French invasion of Spain

      n.p. [London], Stanhope St, 1823. 11-1/2 pp (manuscript) on 3 large bifolia of watermarked paper + one page cover letter to "Mr. Wright" (probably the printer) conveying the speech as the "correct Report ... to be inserted in the Parliamentary Debates of the late session". 1 vols. Folio & 8o (letter). Some wear, mounted on inner margins. Palmerston Speech on Negotiations over France and Spain, 1823 The Spanish Civil War of 1820-1823, a conflict between royalists and liberals, resulted in the intervention of Bourbon France in the conflict, and in April, 1823, 100,000 French troops invaded Spain to restore King Ferdinand VII to the Spanish throne. Debates on the English response were held in the House of Commons, and this is the speech delivered by Lord Palmerston (1784-1865), then Secretary at War, in his own hand, as delivered to the printer of the Parliamentary Debates: "Whatever difference of opinion might exist upon some points, there were two on which all seemed to agree; first, the injustice of the conduct of France, and next that the contest, end as it may, must be injurious to the interests of England. ...He must be a bold prophet who could venture to foretell the issue of the contest; but he must indeed be an unwise politician who could have plunged us at once and blindfold into the war.".

        J.M. ELFORD'S MARINE TELEGRAPH; OR, UNIVERSAL SIGNAL BOOK.BEING ALSO THE KEY TO THE PATENT TELEGRAPH, INVENTED BY THE AUTHOR, CAPABLE OF MAKING 9330 PROGRESSIVE CHANGES, BY USING THE FIGURES FROM 1 TO 6 ONLY.

      Charleston: Printed by Archibald E. Miller, 1823. - 75,[4]pp. plus handcolored frontispiece, and 8pp. addenda. Original marbled paper boards with leather spine, reinforced with old linen. Corners lightly worn, inner hinges cracked but sewing tight. Contemporary ownership inscription on flyleaf and rear pastedown. Minor scattered soiling, but generally quite clean internally. Very good. A rare instructional work on a patented system of ship communication, using just six telegraphic flags. Elford taught navigation and nautical astronomy in Charleston. The frontispiece depicts "Marine, Telegraphic flags." Quite an early American signal book. Though there were other early systems in America, not all the inventors published books. Elford's marine visual system depended on six uniquely patterned flags, and on a "conversation flag." These are illustrated in this book, along with a glossary of words and sentences, and their numerical equivalents, which would be signaled by means of the flags. A sheet of testimonials has been pasted on the inside of the front board, at the bottom of which is a list of agents. Lemuel Moody of Portland is the first name listed - it would be interesting to know if he used Elford's system to signal from his observatory. The front flyleaf is inscribed, "Ship Marengo of New Orleans, B. Wood, Master." On the following blank is a handcolored illustration with manuscript showing the four flags that would signal Marengo's identifying number. The supplement which follows the text is 4pp. long in this volume - an unusual variation. It is followed by an 8pp. MARINE TELEGRAPH REGISTER listing ships and their identifying numbers. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 12436. RINK 3984.
