        The Presidential message proclaiming the Monroe Doctrine, in The National Intelligencer

      Washington, D.C. Gales and Seaton, Thursday, 4 December 1823. Volume xi, no. 3417. 1823. Bound with 127 issues of the paper 8 July to 31 December 1823. Large folio, 4pp. (20 3/8 x 15 1/4 in.), printed five columns to the page, decorative masthead at top of page 1, Monroe's message with American eagle woodcut at head. FIRST NEWSPAPER PRINTING OF THE MONROE DOCTRINE, IN THE QUASI-OFFICIAL National Intelligencer. Monroe's historic message to Congress of 2 December 1823 (here occupying 6 columns on pages 2 and 3) enshrined as national policy principles suggested by Secretary of State John Quincy Adams, condemning European intervention in the Americas and prohibiting all efforts at colonization. Monroe proclaimed that "The American continents, by the free and independent condition they have assumed and maintained, are henceforth not to be considered as subjects for future colonization by any European powers," and that any such intervention would be regarded as "manifestation of an unfriendly disposition towards the United States." His announcement "represented one of Adams' finest contributions to the emergence of the United States as a world power" (Nagel, John Quincy Adams, p.271). "By including the policy statement in his annual message Monroe gave his declaration a character reminiscent of Washington's well-remembered Farewell Address. He focussed attention upon his utterances as a declaration of national policy..." (Ammon, James Monroe: The Quest for National Identity, p.492). This printing, in the quasi-official National Intelligencer, is preceded only by an exceedingly rare "extra" issued on 2 December by the same press. Grolier American 100, 33 (book form edition); Streeter Sale, lot 1734. Disbound, spine defective, occasionally minor fraying, but internally in fine condition.

Set published 1823-1827. This account of Cailliaud’s second sojourn in Egypt, 1819-1822, is particularly valuable for its description of contemporary Egypt and of Cailliaud’s contacts with Mehmet Ali. He joined Isma’il Pasha’s military expedition to Nubia, where he explored the ruins of the ancient city of Meroe, after already having explored the Western Oasis, and the Oasis of Siouwah and Jupitor Ammon with Mehmet Ali’s expeditionary force. The work was edited by Cailliaud and Jomard together. The plates in the text volumes are mostly of costumes; the lithographed views are relatively early. The Atlas contains 150 beautiful plates of maps, plans, views, costumes, inscriptions, botanical and wildlife figures. Jomard also produced two minor works connected with Cailliaud: Notice sur le second voyage de M.F. Cailliaud, 1823, and Voyage a l’Oasis de Syouah, redige et publie d’apres les materiaux recueillis par le Chev. Drovetti et par Cailliaud pendant leurs voyages dans cette Oasis en 1819 et 1820, Paris, 1823. There is a wealth of information as well as vocabulary tables "of the language of Syouah", "the language of Qamâmyl Negroes in Bertât" and "language spoken at Dongolah", lists of oasis villages in low Egypt and northern Sudan, transcriptions of Greek epigraphs found at Thebes, meteorological observations.

        Veduta della parte degl'avanzi del Foro di Nerva da altri Erario pubblico in oggi Arco de' Pantani

      Roma 1823 - LE ANTICHITA ROMANE La serie delle vedute di Antichità Romane, composta di 101 tavole, viene realizzata con il ricavato della e vendita dei rami della Raccolta di cinquanta principali vedute di antichità tratte dai scavi fatti in Roma in questi ultimi tempi divise in 40 vedute edita nel 1817. Con quest’opera, per il numero delle tavole e per il formato prescelto, di grandi dimensioni, l’incisore vuole affermarsi come figura di primo piano nel mondo artistico romano. In quest’opera Rossini si cimenta in un diretto confronto con il suo predecessore G. B. Piranesi che costituisce un punto di riferimento per un incisore di vedute antiche, per quanto riguarda l’originalità e l’ampiezza della riproduzione. Il Rossini, oltre a sottolineare la sua influenza nella scelta del titolo e di alcune didascalie, usa frequentemente le medesime inquadrature e identici punti di vista del maestro veneziano. Altro elemento riconducibile a Piranesi è l’uso della luce e dei forti contrasti chiaroscurali. In queste tavole raggiunge una certa padronanza del mezzo tecnico che gli permette di cimentarsi in inquadrature più complesse nelle quali si nota un’organizzazione spaziale molto articolata. Nelle tavole è frequente il ricorso al taglio diagonale della veduta, consentendogli una più ampia possibilità di graduare i chiaroscuri in profondità. Tuttavia essendo l’opera composta da molte tavole presenta una certa discontinuità ed è possibile riscontrare in alcune di esse qualche incertezza nella impostazione prospettica ed alcune durezze nel segno. Rimanendo fedele alla tradizione corrente, la scelta dei soggetti operata dal Rossini non introduce nessuna novità; sono infatti rappresentati tutti i più importanti monumenti e luoghi archeologici di Roma. Elementi di novità sono sottolineati dalla registrazione puntuale dei lavori di indagine e di scavo intrapresi in quegli anni che dalla originalità delle inquadrature. Di particolare interesse da un punto di vista documentario sono le ultime quattro incisioni relative alla distruzione della Basilica di San Paolo fuori le mura, in seguito all’incendio del 15 luglio 1823. La volontà di voler animare le vedute, restituendo il monumento al suo contesto storico e la propria inadeguatezza nel campo della figura porta Rossini ad una collaborazione con Bartolomeo Pinelli, incisore romano, interprete e illustratore del costume e della vita popolare; a cui si devono le figure e i gruppi caratteristici che corredano le vedute. Pinelli in alcuni casi, riprende i motivi tratti dalle sue precedenti raccolte di Costumi pittoreschi romani. ROMAN ANTIQUITIES The series of views Antichità Romane, made of 101 plates, was realized with the proceeds of the sale of the plates used for Raccolta di cinquanta principali vedute di antichità tratte dai scavi fatti in Roma in questi ultimi tempi divided in 40 views, published in 1817. This is the work with which the artist wanted to become one of the most important artists in the Roman cultural life; we can state that if we consider the size of the work and the subject he choose. In this work Rossini tested himself with his predecessor, G. B. Piranesi, who was considered as a point of reference when it came to ancient views and originality. Rossini, was deeply influenced by Piranesi, as it can be seen in the title, the legends, the same points of views and framing. Another important element he took from Piranesi is the use of light and the contrast of chiaroscuro. In these plates Rossini reached the higher mastery of the technique, realizing also extremely particular framings and a new and complex organization of the space. In the plates quite common is the diagonal view of the subject, which gave him the possibility to elaborate more the chiaroscuro. However, since the work is made of many plates, it is quite discontinuous and some of the plates present some indecision in the perspective formulation and a little harshness in the mark. Always following the tradition of his time, Ross

        Veduta dell'Antico Ponte Janiculense ristaurato da Sisto IV

      Roma 1823 - LE ANTICHITA ROMANE La serie delle vedute di Antichità Romane, composta di 101 tavole, viene realizzata con il ricavato della e vendita dei rami della Raccolta di cinquanta principali vedute di antichità tratte dai scavi fatti in Roma in questi ultimi tempi divise in 40 vedute edita nel 1817. Con quest’opera, per il numero delle tavole e per il formato prescelto, di grandi dimensioni, l’incisore vuole affermarsi come figura di primo piano nel mondo artistico romano. In quest’opera Rossini si cimenta in un diretto confronto con il suo predecessore G. B. Piranesi che costituisce un punto di riferimento per un incisore di vedute antiche, per quanto riguarda l’originalità e l’ampiezza della riproduzione. Il Rossini, oltre a sottolineare la sua influenza nella scelta del titolo e di alcune didascalie, usa frequentemente le medesime inquadrature e identici punti di vista del maestro veneziano. Altro elemento riconducibile a Piranesi è l’uso della luce e dei forti contrasti chiaroscurali. In queste tavole raggiunge una certa padronanza del mezzo tecnico che gli permette di cimentarsi in inquadrature più complesse nelle quali si nota un’organizzazione spaziale molto articolata. Nelle tavole è frequente il ricorso al taglio diagonale della veduta, consentendogli una più ampia possibilità di graduare i chiaroscuri in profondità. Tuttavia essendo l’opera composta da molte tavole presenta una certa discontinuità ed è possibile riscontrare in alcune di esse qualche incertezza nella impostazione prospettica ed alcune durezze nel segno. Rimanendo fedele alla tradizione corrente, la scelta dei soggetti operata dal Rossini non introduce nessuna novità; sono infatti rappresentati tutti i più importanti monumenti e luoghi archeologici di Roma. Elementi di novità sono sottolineati dalla registrazione puntuale dei lavori di indagine e di scavo intrapresi in quegli anni che dalla originalità delle inquadrature. Di particolare interesse da un punto di vista documentario sono le ultime quattro incisioni relative alla distruzione della Basilica di San Paolo fuori le mura, in seguito all’incendio del 15 luglio 1823. La volontà di voler animare le vedute, restituendo il monumento al suo contesto storico e la propria inadeguatezza nel campo della figura porta Rossini ad una collaborazione con Bartolomeo Pinelli, incisore romano, interprete e illustratore del costume e della vita popolare; a cui si devono le figure e i gruppi caratteristici che corredano le vedute. Pinelli in alcuni casi, riprende i motivi tratti dalle sue precedenti raccolte di Costumi pittoreschi romani. ROMAN ANTIQUITIES The series of views Antichità Romane, made of 101 plates, was realized with the proceeds of the sale of the plates used for Raccolta di cinquanta principali vedute di antichità tratte dai scavi fatti in Roma in questi ultimi tempi divided in 40 views, published in 1817. This is the work with which the artist wanted to become one of the most important artists in the Roman cultural life; we can state that if we consider the size of the work and the subject he choose. In this work Rossini tested himself with his predecessor, G. B. Piranesi, who was considered as a point of reference when it came to ancient views and originality. Rossini, was deeply influenced by Piranesi, as it can be seen in the title, the legends, the same points of views and framing. Another important element he took from Piranesi is the use of light and the contrast of chiaroscuro. In these plates Rossini reached the higher mastery of the technique, realizing also extremely particular framings and a new and complex organization of the space. In the plates quite common is the diagonal view of the subject, which gave him the possibility to elaborate more the chiaroscuro. However, since the work is made of many plates, it is quite discontinuous and some of the plates present some indecision in the perspective formulation and a little harshness in the mark. Always following the tradition of his time, Ross

      1823 - New Orleans: Printed by Benj. Levy & Co., 1823. Livingston Solicits Opinions on His Penal Code for Louisiana Livingston, Edward [1764-1836]. Extracts from the Projected Penal Code: Containing the Fourth Section of the Thirteenth Chapter, Third Book: Entitled "Of Offences Which Affect Written Contracts." So Many of the Definitions Contained in the First Book as Apply to Terms Employed in the Said Chapter. That Part of the Fourth Book which Contains the Forms of Proceeding. And of the Fifth Book Which Gives the Rules of Evidence, Applicable Exclusively to Those Offences. To Which is Prefixed an Extract from a Preliminary Discourse, Indicating the Changes that Have Been Made, And Assigning the Reasons for Adopting Them. The Whole Intended to Exemplify the Manner in Which the Projected Code will be Executed, By Exhibiting in One View the Several Parts, Which Bear Upon a Single Class of Offences. New Orleans: Printed by Benj. Levy & Co., 1823. 31, [2] pp. Folio (12-1/4" x 7-1/2"). Recent period-style quarter calf over marbled boards, gilt title and date to spine. Light toning to text, negligible light foxing in a few places. Ex-library. Small inkstamp to head of title page. $1,500. * Only edition. Livingston produced this set of excerpts when he was completing the draft of his System of Penal Law, Prepared for the State of Louisiana. He sent copies to James Kent and other distinguished jurists, as well as several politicians and journalists, in order to "point out such of the many errors I must have committed, as you may discover; and suggest such alterations and improvements as may occur to you" [2]. Submitted to the Louisiana state assembly in 1824, Livingston's code marked an epoch in the broad international movement for penal reform. Profoundly influenced by Bentham, it stressed prevention over vengeance in every facet of his work. Never enacted, it nevertheless established itself as one of the great standards for other reformers. Hicks marvels at the scope and clear organization of this code and notes that Bentham, Hugo, Lafayette, Story, Marshall, Madison, Kent and Jefferson considered it "the most comprehensive and enlightened system of criminal law that has ever been presented to the world."

        ACCREDITED GHOST STORIES. Collected by T. M. Jarvis, Esq. ..

      London: Printed for J. Andrews, New Bond Street, 1823.. 12mo, pp. [i-v] vi [vii-viii] [1] 2-235 [236: blank], rebound in nineteenth-century three-quarter brown leather and marbled boards, spine panel ruled in gold, black leather title label. First edition. A collection of credulous ghost stories based on UK legends and folklore, an early forerunner of similar compilations of "true" ghost stories by Catherine Crowe and Elliott O'Donnell. "When Horace Walpole used all the apparatus of Gothic fantasy in THE CASTLE OF OTRANTO (1765) he created a literary vehicle for ghosts without establishing the ghost story; the spectres were merely a stage effect. But they now became the stock-in-trade of the Gothic school of writing. In these novels a haunted edifice was an inevitable centerpiece. In most cases the hauntings were contrived by human agency or the ghost had a walk-on part in order to provoke the action; in much fewer cases were the ghost genuinely supernatural, with a more significant role. Most of these books were formulaic and repetitive, but a few are worthy of note ... Although the better Gothics also utilized ghosts, these were usually rationalized. The use of sheeted spectres, wailing phantoms, rattling chains and gibbering skeletons reduced the supernatural element to burlesque, and the Gothic ghost story was soon parodied in such works as NIGHTMARE ABBEY (1818) by Thomas Love Peacock and NORTHANGER ABBEY (1818) by Jane Austen. Rudolph Ackermann published GHOST-STORIES; COLLECTED WITH A PARTICULAR VIEW TO COUNTERACT THE VULGAR BELIEF IN GHOSTS AND APPARITIONS ... (1823) in an effort to counter the excesses of the Gothic story ... In the UK the ghost story was as much influenced by folk tales and legend as by the Gothic romance. A number of ghost stories were collected in the same manner as the Grimm Brothers compiled their folk tales, and presented in narrative form. The main folklorists reporting these tales included James Hogg in WINTER EVENING TALES (1820) and THE SHEPHERD'S CALENDAR (1828), the brothers John and Michael Banim in REVELATIONS OF THE DEAD-ALIVE (1824) [this is future history, not a collection of folklore - LWC] and T. Crofton Croker in FAIRY LEGENDS AND TRADITIONS OF THE SOUTH OF IRELAND (1825). Their stories take the form of reportage of folk legends, but became increasingly humanized. The best-remembered collector of ghost stories was Catherine Crowe, with her highly influential THE NIGHT SIDE OF NATURE (1848), LIGHT AND DARKNESS (1850) and GHOSTS AND FAMILY LEGENDS (1858). These set the trend for 'real' ghost stories related in fictional narrative form, an approach that became very popular in the 1890s ..." - Clute and Grant, eds., The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 403. Private owner's bookplate affixed to front paste-down. Bound without the half title leaf and the final advertising leaf, light rubbing to leather al spine ends and corner tips and along outer joints, a very good copy. (#151810)

Il Rossini, oltre a sottolineare la sua influenza nella scelta del titolo e di alcune didascalie, usa frequentemente le medesime inquadrature e identici punti di vista del maestro veneziano. Altro elemento riconducibile a Piranesi è l’uso della luce e dei forti contrasti chiaroscurali. In queste tavole raggiunge una certa padronanza del mezzo tecnico che gli permette di cimentarsi in inquadrature più complesse nelle quali si nota un’organizzazione spaziale molto articolata. Nelle tavole è frequente il ricorso al taglio diagonale della veduta, consentendogli una più ampia possibilità di graduare i chiaroscuri in profondità. Tuttavia essendo l’opera composta da molte tavole presenta una certa discontinuità ed è possibile riscontrare in alcune di esse qualche incertezza nella impostazione prospettica ed alcune durezze nel segno. Rimanendo fedele alla tradizione corrente, la scelta dei soggetti operata dal Rossini non introduce nessuna novità; sono infatti rappresentati tutti i più importanti monumenti e luoghi archeologici di Roma. Elementi di novità sono sottolineati dalla registrazione puntuale dei lavori di indagine e di scavo intrapresi in quegli anni che dalla originalità delle inquadrature. Di particolare interesse da un punto di vista documentario sono le ultime quattro incisioni relative alla distruzione della Basilica di San Paolo fuori le mura, in seguito all’incendio del 15 luglio 1823. La volontà di voler animare le vedute, restituendo il monumento al suo contesto storico e la propria inadeguatezza nel campo della figura porta Rossini ad una collaborazione con Bartolomeo Pinelli, incisore romano, interprete e illustratore del costume e della vita popolare; a cui si devono le figure e i gruppi caratteristici che corredano le vedute. Pinelli in alcuni casi, riprende i motivi tratti dalle sue precedenti raccolte di Costumi pittoreschi romani. ROMAN ANTIQUITIES The series of views Antichità Romane, made of 101 plates, was realized with the proceeds of the sale of the plates used for Raccolta di cinquanta principali vedute di antichità tratte dai scavi fatti in Roma in questi ultimi tempi divided in 40 views, published in 1817. This is the work with which the artist wanted to become one of the most important artists in the Roman cultural life; we can state that if we consider the size of the work and the subject he choose. In this work Rossini tested himself with his predecessor, G. B. Piranesi, who was considered as a point of reference when it came to ancient views and originality. Rossini, was deeply influenced by Piranesi, as it can be seen in the title, the legends, the same points of views and framing. Another important element he took from Piranesi is the use of light and the contrast of chiaroscuro. In these plates Rossini reached the higher mastery of the technique, realizing also extremely particular framings and a new and complex organization of the space. In the plates quite common is the diagonal view of the subject, which gave him the possibility to elaborate more the chiaroscuro. However, since the work is made of many plates, it is quite discontinuous and some of the plates present some indecision in the perspective formulation and a little harshness in the mark. Always following the tradition of his time, Ross
