        James Monroe and John Quincy Adams Signed Patent for Wheel to Secure Ropes and Chains Used in Machinery

      Washington 1823 - Document Signed by Madison as President and co-signed by Adams as Secretary of State, issued to James Cooper, Patent for a wheel to prevent ropes and chains from slipping when used for turning machinery. Washington, June 17, 1823. 1 p. 11 1/2 x 14 3/4 in. James Monroe (1758-1831) was the fifth president of the United States (1817-25). Born in Westmoreland County, Virginia, he served in the Revolution, entered politics after the war, becoming a Senator (1790-94) and then Governor of Virginia (1799-1802). In 1803, he helped negotiate the Louisiana Purchase for President Jefferson. Monroe served as Secretary of State (1811-17) and Secretary of War (1814-15) under Madison. He was elected President in 1816 and again (almost unanimously) in 1820, receiving 231 out of 232 electoral votes. His popularity was so widespread that he and his party's ascendancy was heralded as the "Era of Good Feelings." His two terms are remembered for the recognition of the new Latin American republics and, of course, the Monroe Doctrine. In his Annual Message of 1823, Monroe responded to European threats of encroachment on Latin American land by declaring that the American continents, "by the free and independent condition which they have assumed and maintain, are henceforth not to be considered as subjects for future colonization by any European Power." Monroe could do little to back up these statements and it was not until the presidency of Theodore Roosevelt that this policy was given military muscle.John Quincy Adams (1767-1848) was the sixth president of the United States (1825-29). Born in Quincy, Massachusetts, the son of John Adams, the younger Adams studied at Harvard and was admitted to the bar in 1790. He served successively as minister to The Netherlands, Great Britain, Portugal, and Berlin in the 1790s. He served in the Massachusetts Senate (1803-06), as minister to Russia (1809), and as minister to the Court of St. James (1815-17). Adams was elected president over Andrew Jackson without a majority of electoral votes; the election was ultimately decided by the House of Representatives. As president, he developed a federal program to create a system of highways and canals connecting the territories, and in 1828 broke ground for the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal. In 1830, Adams was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, where he served for the remainder of his life as a fighter against the circumscription of civil liberties.James Cooper (1780-1845) was born in Virginia. A serial inventor, Cooper also obtained patents for improving Archimedian screws in 1819 and for machinery to supersede the use of cog wheels in 1826.ConditionEngrossment is light; James Monroe's signature is good and John Quincy Adams' signature is dark. Tape remnants on verso at edges from former framing.Historical Background- Presidential Signed PatentsAt 3:00 on the morning of December 15, 1836, a Patent Office messenger sleeping in the building awoke to thick smoke emanating from the basement. He acted quickly, rousing his colleagues to make a desperate attempt to enter the portion of the building that housed the patent documents. Outside the patent room, they encountered blocked doors, heavy smoke, and unreachable windows. By the time the fire department arrived, it was too late; the Patent Office was doomed, and eventually burnt to the ground.An estimated 7,000 models, 9,000 drawings and 230 books-as well as applications, correspondence, and patent copies-were destroyed by the blaze. Some of these documents were recovered with the help of inventors who still held the original patents, but an examination of the records recovered by the Patent Office revealed that their efforts to restore the archive were not very successful. Many of the destroyed patents were issued between 1790 and 1822, and had expired at the time of the fire, which made the recovery process even more difficult (Early Un-numbered U.S. Patents, 1790-1836).

        Sultan. Winner of the Newmarket Whip in 1823 / By Selim out of Bacchante by Williamson's Ditto. / the Property of the Most Noble the Maquis of Exeter. Farbaquatinta in altkolorit.

      London. 1823 - Plattengrösse: 31,5x42cm. In passendem Rahmen unter Passepartout 56x64 cm. Sehr schöne handkolorierte Aquatinta. John Ferneley senior was born in Thrussington, Leicestershire; the son of a wheelwright and wagon builder. He worked for his father until, aged 20, his naïve paintings were noticed by the Duke of Rutland. He then began an apprenticeship with sporting artist Ben Marshall in London and received commissions from officers of the Leicestershire yeomanry under the Duke’s command. Fox-hunter Thomas Assheton Smith and Irish noblemen Lord Lismore and George O’Callaghan became important patrons. Ferneley settled in Melton Mowbray in 1813, later building Elgin Lodge. He is best-known for hunting portraits and panoramic views of hunters galloping. He exhibited at the Royal Academy, British Institution and Society of British Artists. He died aged 78. Edward Duncan, a marine and landscape painter in watercolour and engraver, was the son of an artist and engraver, also named Edward. He began his career in the studio of Robert Havell senior and later set up business on his own, engraving sporting and shipping subjects, particularly by the William John Huggins. He later married Huggins’s daughter, Berthia. He became a member of the Royal Institution in 1833, serving as Vice-President and Treasurer, but resigned in 1847. Two years later he became a member of the Royal Society of Painters in Water Colours. Between 1843 and 1851, he worked as an illustrator for the ‘Illustrated London News’. Duncan lived in north London throughout his life. He died at his home near Haverstock Hill, aged 78. This rich, red bay colt with three white socks was named ‘Sultan’. Bred from ‘Bacchante’ in 1816, ‘Sultan’ was initially owned by the gambling club proprietor William Crockford (c.1776-1844). Crockford began his career as a bookmaker at Newmarket Heath but in 1828 established the high-stakes London gaming club known as Crockford’s, in St James’s Street. In 1821 Sultan was sold to Thomas Foley, 3rd Baron. Immediately after the Newmarket Whip of 1823, Foley sold the horse to Brownlow Cecil, second Marquess of Exeter. As ‘Sultan’ was the only challenger for the Newmarket Whip that year, the horse in fact won by default. This may explain why the winner is here depicted at rest in a field, rather than racing.

        Manuel d’Électricité Dynamique, ou Traité sur l’action mutuelle des conducteurs électriques et des aimans, et sur une nouvelle théorie du magnetism; pour faire suite à tous les Traités de Physique élémentaire.

      Bachelier, 1823., Paris: - 8vo. 8.25 x 5.25 inches. [4], 210, [2] pp. It appears that this work was issued in two printings in 1823. There is no mention of two issues in any reference work, so we can only guess at which issue is the first. Some institutional copies (such as the Wheeler copy) are numbered to page 210 (like ours) and in those copies the address of the publisher given on the title page is "Quai des grands-Augustins, no. 55" (with the issue point of a lower case "g" in "grands"). ILLUSTRATIONS: Five folding engraved plates with light scattered foxing, but overall in very good plus condition. BINDING: Handsomely bound in modern calf over marbled boards with gilt-stamped spine label; corners rubbed, spine carefully repaired with ends missing small pieces. INTERIOR: Endpapers renewed. Some light foxing to half-title page and an occasional small, light brown spot scattered in the text, but overall the interior is in near fine condition. This work was translated into English by James Cumming in 1872 as A Manual of Electro Dynamics, or, Treatise on the Mutual Action of Electric Conductors and Magnets. Scarce FIRST EDITION of the first textbook on electrodynamics to incorporate the newly made discoveries of Ampère and Oersted (Bakken 174; Poggendorff, 548). Demonferrand’s Manuel d’Électricité Dynamique illuminates the "fundamental phenomena and laws of electro-dynamics" and represents a first, important, and comprehensive treatment (written in scientific and mathematical language) of Ampere’s theory of electromagnetism (Wheeler 797). "Demonferrand’s account is more informative in some other respects than either of the previous written versions The notion of an equilibrium is reported here for the first time, yet it agrees with a much later account given by Ampère himself in1833. Furthermore, Demonferrand indicated that the object of [one of his] experiment[s] was to throw light on the question of whether electric currents already exist in iron when it is in the unmagnetized condition, or if they are brought into being as a result of magnetization. The result of the experiment did not settle this question But once again we find Demonferrand anticipating a later statement (1833) by Ampère of his objective in performing the experiment .Some years later, after the publication of Faraday’s discovery, the history of this experiment suddenly acquired some importance" (Ross 92). "Demonferrand’s account of the Ampère-de La Rive experiment has a certain precision of description that suggests he may have derived it in part from Ampère himself; it is, at all events, a more explicit account than any previously published Ampère, himself, promoted Demonferrand’s work, sending many copies of Manuel d’Électricité Dynamique abroad, including one to Michael Faraday" (Ross 90). Demonferrand (1795-1844) was a pupil of Ampère and a professor of mathematics and physics at the Colège Royale in Versailles. In this work, he describes many of Ampère’s theories, supplemented with experimental research and theories of his own.

        [Color Plate] The Adventures of Johnny Newcome in the Navy. A poem, in four cantos, with notes

      London: Published for the author, and sold by Sherwood, Neely, and Jones, Paternoster-Row et al, 1823. Early Reprint. Morocco. Fine. Royal 8vo: [vii],[1],284]pp, with tissue-guarded, hand-colored frontispiece and 19 hand-colored full-page plates by Charles Williams. Elegantly bound by Bayntun in full blue morocco, covers with interlocking gilt scrollwork borders and anchor-device corner pieces, spine similarly decorated and lettered in six compartments between raised bands, all edges and turn-ins gilt, marbled endpapers, two royal blue silk page ribbons. A stunning copy, binding secure, square and unblemished, pages and plates bright and fresh. Abbey, Life 340. Martin Hardie, p. 173. Grolier Rowlandson 42-43. Tooley 331-32. Prideaux, p. 303-04. Third Edition of Mitford’s most famous work, in octosyllabic verse. An imitation of a work published in 1818, by Alfred Burton, with the same title, both works being imitations of The military adventures of Johnny Newcome . . . by an officer (London, 1815). "The Mitford work is an entirely different poem from the poem by Alfred Burton, though evidently an imitation of it." (Hardie) Johnny Newcome (generic for raw recruit) is a clergyman’s son forced to leave school and join the navy when his father loses his money in a banking crash. He embarks on H.M.S. Capricorn and, under the good captain Dale, his career prospers. But in Jamaica yellow fever strikes, Captain Dale dies and is replaced by the bullying Captain Teak, and Johnny leaves the navy, falling on hard times. According to the ODNB, in 1814 or thereabouts, Mitford was "showing signs of mental illness. He was discharged from the navy as insane, and took to journalism and poetry. He was unable to make a living and became poverty-stricken, leaving his wife and children. . . . [In later years,] "unkempt, ragged, and filthy, [Mitford] lived and worked for forty-three days in the open in an old gravel pit in Bayswater Fields, with a bed of grass and nettles." Mitford wrote Adventures of Johnny Newcome there, "where he lay in hiding, receiving from his publisher a shilling daily in return for his copy, wherewith to purchase gin and cheese." (Hardie) N. B.

        [MAP] Australien

      / entworfen und gezeichnet 1823 nach dem Krusenstern'schen Atlasse umgearbeitet 1825. Weimar: Im Verlage des Geograph. Instituts, 1826. Engraved map with hand colouring, 430 x 595 mm, dissected and laid down on linen, folding to 220 x 190 mm; map of Australia and Oceania with relief shown by hachures; in very good condition with a tiny amount of spotting, the linen backing with mild foxing. Although the coastlines of Australia, New Guinea, the Indonesian archipelago, New Zealand, island Polynesia, Micronesia and Melanesia are all essentially complete, perhaps the most striking aspect of this map is the vast emptiness of the as yet unexplored interiors of both the Australian continent (Neu Holland) and New Guinea. The cartographer, C.F. Weiland, was trained as a military mapmaker, and as head of map and globe production at the Weimar Geographical Institute, a publishing house and research institute, he was responsible for revising many earlier maps by important cartographers. Weiland's maps are noted for their accuracy and fine engraving, and the present example is no exception. A single copy is recorded in Australian collections (National Library of Australia).

        The Jesuits Unmasked, Being An Illustration Of The Existing Evils Of Popery In A Protestant Government

      London - B. Seeley And Son 1823 - A rare first edition of William Parker's petition to the House of Commons, complaining of Jesuit activities in South Africa. Scarce last seen at auction in 2001In this deeply sectarian series of missives, Parker complains that English Protestant settlers in South Africa have been exposed to the risk of extirpation. He argues that a conspiracy to this end was being directed from the Jesuit Institution in Lancashire. The issue was discussed in Parliament, and as such can be found in Hansard from that year. There is an advert for the work appended, which explains that it was framed at periods when the writer and his family suffered most severely from the conduct of official men, and when he was well convinced that popery in the government of the Cape, caused the oppression exercised towards him. This copy is from the collection of George Harwood, and his bookplate can be found to the front pastedown. Harwood was a businessman and Liberal party politician who lived from 1845 to 1912. He was once Mayor of Bolton and Twice Mayor of Salford. Condition: In half morocco with gilt detailing to the spine. Externally very smart indeed, with very minor rubbing to the extremities of the boards and a few light marks elsewhere. The spine has a particularly nice colour. There are two notices mentioning the bookto the front pastedown, the second of which notes that the work is extremely rare. There is also a bookplate to the front pastedown. The pages are uncut, but are generally clean and bright. Firmly bound. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Literary Remains. Collection of manuscript Drinking Songs, Poems, and late fragments]

      [Edinburgh, etc. 1823 - 56 leaves, closely written, with 4 autograph pages of verse songs dated 23 Nov. to 19 Dec. 1823 (loosely inserted, on verso of A.L.s. to Campbell, 18 Feb. 1822); and a loosely inserted receipt for one guineas for Albyn's Anthology dated 1816. 1 vols. 4to and smaller. Alexander Campbell (1764-1824), composer and writer, published several collections of Scottish songs, and while a teacher in Edinburgh "gave lessons in harpsichord and singing. Among his pupils were Walter Scott and his brothers, but the lads had no taste for the subject and the master had no patience" (ODNB). Campbell's main project, long delayed, was Albyn's anthology, begun in the 1790s and published in 2 volumes 1816-18; a third volume was projected but never published.

        England's safety: or, a bridle to the French King. Proposing a sure method for encouraging navigation, and raising qualified seamen ...London, William Miller, 1693. 4to. With a pseudo-heraldic woodcut frontispiece (17 x 12 cm) with letterpress title and motto ("This encouraged, England must flourish."), with as bearing an anchor topped by the royal crown, and other nautical attributes, supported by 2 men, one with a globe and the other with a quadrant, each with a compass at his feet. The British flag flies above it with ships in the background. Set in roman and italic types. 18th-century blue paper wrappers, side stitched through 4 holes, with manuscript title-label on front.

      ESTC R229366; DNB L, p. 172; Cat. Goldsmith I, 2996; Kress 1823; Wing S342. Second edition, with additional material and 8 pages longer than the first edition published earlier in the same year, of a rare and interesting pamphlet containing proposals for the improvement of England's navy and maritime trade, by the naval Captain and administrator George St. Lo (1658-1718).St. Lo suggest several methods for improving the British navy, recommends raising the pay of the crew and proposes that all seamen be registered with a local intendant, so that when the call for service does come, men may be located and distributed more quickly. He also notes that the French spend much more money on their navy. Regarding the confiscation of foreign cargo, St. Lo proposes that fully one third of the value of the goods be awarded to the captain and the crew. When it comes time to auction the actual goods, he recommends the spoils be broken into small lots, to allow for the greatest price per lot, thus increasing revenue.St. Lo's nine-page dedicatory letter to the Houses of Parliament gives a fascinating and detailed account of his own mistreatment by the French after his capture. In August 1688 St. Lo was appointed Captain of the Portsmouth and attached to the fleet in the river under Lord Dartmouth. He continuing to command her after the Glorious Revolution of 1688/89. In 1690 he was captured by the French and carried, severely wounded, to Brest, where he remained a prisoner for some time. His wound probably disqualified him from further service afloat, and in 1692 he was appointed a commissioner of prizes, in 1693 an extra commissioner of the navy, and in 1695 resident commissioner at Plymouth, where in 1697 he was directed to guard and assist the workmen employed in the construction of the first Eddystone lighthouse.With what may be an owner's monogram (JNL?) on the title-page. Where the author notes some opposition to his book, the owner has struck through his statement that it did not affect sales. In good condition and wholly untrimmed, slightly thumbed and with some quires slightly browned. The spine of the wrapper is tattered.
