        Letters From North America Written During a Tour In the United States And Canada

      London: Hurst, Robinson, & Co.and A. Constable & Co., 1824. First Edition. Both volumes of this two volume set are in very good+ condition in 3/4 leather (calf) and marbled paper covered boards with gilt text and rules on the spines. Both volumes are octavos measuring 8 1/2" by 5 1/8" with rubbing and light wear to the leather around the tips of the boards, at the head and heel of the spines and at the joints. Volume I contains a preface followed by 405 pages which includes an errata on page 405. It is illustrated with a frontispiece map. Volume II contains a fold-out, frontispiece map, 459 pages followed by a tipped-in errata and is illustrated with the aforementioned frontispiece and several engravings of Native American implements and ornaments on pages 442 and 443. With the exception of offsetting from the frontispieces and engravings there is no foxing or tanning present within these two volumes. This is the more complete and revised edition of Hodgson's letters. The earlier version was printed in New York in 1823 and strips much from its content. The author spent eight months traveling through out the eastern states of the US. In the process he wrote 44 letters which are published in these volumes. He arrived in New York City and traveled to Washington DC, Richmond, Norfolk, Raleigh, Fayetteville, Lumberton, Charleston, Savannah, Augusta, Mobile, New Orleans, Natchez, Greenville, Huntsville, Lookout Mountain, Knoxville, visited Jefferson at Monticello, Baltimore, parts of New England and Philadelphia. His main areas of interest were slavery, which he abhorred, and Indian culture, where he had a great interest. Howes considers this set as "quite scarce" and provides "Unbiased observations." (Clark, Vol. 2, 208; Howes, H-560)

        Rosa Damascena Variegata. Rosier d'York et de Lancastre

      [Paris: Firmin Didot], 1824. Stipple engraving printed in black, on ochre-tinted paper, by Bessin, after Redouté, printed by Rémond. Very good condition. A very rare uncoloured 'connoisseur's' impression on ochre-tinted paper from the first edition of 'Les Roses': Redouté's most famous work, and perhaps the most celebrated flower book of all time The present uncoloured plate was printed on ochre paper as it was realized that this gave a pleasing effect. The ochre background enhances the subtle gradations of tone achieved using the stipple engraving technique and gives a unique opportunity to appreciate the unrivalled artistry of both Pierre-Joseph Redouté himself and the master-craftsman he employed to translate his watercolour into a print of the highest quality. Redouté learned, whilst on a visit to London, that the most successful impressions of stipple engravings came from well-used plates. A number of black plates would thus be struck to take the edge off the plate before printing in colours. Redouté's printers struck black impressions - always on a paper with a distinct ochre tint - from the plates, and these early impressions were then combined with later colour-printed examples to form the de luxe issues of 'Les Roses'. Redouté's 'Les Roses' was issued in four formats: a large paper folio with coloured plates, a large paper folio with the plates in two states, folio with coloured plates, and folio with the plates in two states (the present plate comes from this final de luxe form). Gavin Bridson and Donald Wendel, in their magisterial 'Printmaking in the service of botany' catalogue (Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, 1986, item 25) noted that Redouté 'For the interest of connoisseurs' included `a set of black plates as a parallel series to the usual color-printed versions' in 'special issues' of both the present work and his earlier 'Les Liliacées'. The number of these special issues that were produced is unfortunately not recorded but to judge from auction records over the past twenty-five years they are extremely rare: only four complete sets of 'Les Roses' in this format are recorded. The present print therefore comes from an edition that was severely limited, and is certainly much rarer than its colour-printed equivalent. Cf. Cleveland Collections 807; cf. Dunthorne 232; cf. Hunt Redoutéana 19; cf. Hunt, Printmaking in the Service of Botany 25; cf. Nissen BBI 1599; cf. Pritzel 7455; cf. Ray French 89; cf. Stafleu and Cowan 8748.

        Remember Me! A New Years Gift or Christmas Present, 1825.

      - London: I. Poole, [1824]. Small 8vo, xxiv, 372 pp. With an engraved frontispiece, 4 full-page engravings including one by Blake, 8 hand-colored botanical plates, 8 plates of engraved music, and a calendar with an engraved title-page and 6 plates. Publisher's de luxe original full brown polished calf, covers panelled in gilt, backstrip richly gilt-panelled with the binder's name at the foot of the spine "Purgold", slightly worn, occasional small spots on plates as usual, a very good copy of the de luxe issue. First edition of one of the rarest of all of the plates designed and engraved by Blake. The title exists in three states: dated 1825, dated 1826, and with the date on the title removed -- only one other copy thus is known. Three copies in all have been sold in the last 30 years: Sotheby's Belgravia, 3 Feb. 1976, lot 3, Sotheby's London, 6 June 1991, lot 97, and a copy sold privately by Maggs Bros. to Robert N. Essick replacing this copy from Essick purchased at the 1976 sale. The plate, titled 'The Hiding of Moses' was the last plate designed and engraved by Blake himself for a commercial publication; the original drawing 'Moses placed in the Ark of Bulrushes', which closely echoes a tempera now untraced that was executed some 25 years earlier, is in the Huntington Library. BB #490A. Easson and Essick, William Blake Book Illustrator, XI (recording the Rosenwald proof and 3 copies). Bentley (in the U of T Quarterly 2011) noted: "The gift book Remember Me! with Blake's wonderful engraving of the 'Hiding of Moses' was more remarkable for its decorations than for its literary contents. Of the twenty-four copies recorded, each differs from the others in the pattern of binding, colour of fore-edges, endpapers, and the decorated sleeve-case. Despite this varied elegance, the work had only a modest sale, and the same sheets were re-issued in 1825 for the 1826 gift-giving season. This paucity of sales may be related to the fact that the publisher John Poole had little experience of book distribution. His speciality was as a maker of Marble Paper and Fancy Pocket-Books, not in selling them." [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Manuscript Order of Transportation Signed by King George IV, "Warrant for the removal of male convicts under Sentence of Transportation"

      London:. May 18, 1824.. Very good condition. An original manuscript "Warrant for the removal of male convicts under Sentence of Transportation", dated 18 May 1824, and signed strongly at the head " George R". It lists 66 convicts, the majority of whom were transported to Australia. The convicts are listed along the left margin of the order, organized by the court where they were tried, i.e.. Nottingham, Lancaster, the Old Bailey and York. The ship destinations were equally divided between New South Wales & Van Diemen's Land. Trove records only one other original manuscript Warrant, dated April 17, 1824, held at the National Library, Rex Nan Kivell Collection NK626. Astoundingly, the convicts were held on hulks in the River Medway, sometimes for years. While some ship departed as early as 1824, others left in 1836, and seemingly, one F. H. Germaine, who had a 10 year sentence, was held on the hulks for 18 years, being transported in 1842. 15 convicts were shipped on the Minerva in July of 1824. Other ships include the Sir Charles Forbes (7); Lady East (6); Medina (5); Medway (3); Lady Nugent (2); England (2); and 1 each on board the Mangles, William Metcalf, Elphinstone, Manlius, Triton, Marquis of Huntley, Hooghley, Woodman, Norfolk and Guildford. The destination(s) of the remaining 15 prisoner names was not determined. The Minerva sailed from London in July of 1824 with 172 convicts on board, under the command of Captain John Bell, with Surgeon Superintendent Alexander Nisbet on his first appointment to a convict ship. On board there was a guard consisting of Major Tobias Kirkwood, Quarter Master Francis Hales and 43 men of the 40th regiment, and 5 passengers. Surgeon Nisbet kept a medical journal, in which he expresses his concerns over prisoners' sickness: "I suspect that it lay in the ship herself, she having taken out her convicts unhealthy for the two previous voyages ... I tried to remove whatever might be the cause of diseases by the most unremitting attention and supporting their spirits by every indulgence in my power. By attention to cleanliness and encouraging amusements, having provided myself with musical instruments there were occasional dances of an evening in which all took great pleasure." (Held at the National Archives, Kew). After a journey of 128 days the Minerva arrived in Port Jackson in November 1824. Two prisoners had died on the passage out; a muster was held by the Colonial Secretary Frederick Goulburn on the 22nd November 1824. The prisoners appeared to be in good health and stated they were well treated; however 16 men were sent on to the hospital in Sydney. [see jenwilletts dot com]. The prisoners held at Nottingham include, followed by the ship they were transported on and the date: George Henry Fowler (Minerva, July 1824), Henry Green (Lady East, November 1824), John Cooper (Mangles, July 1824), William Bonnington (Minerva, July 1824), William Markham (Medina, April 1825), Daniel Boswell (Minerva, July 1824), William Hayes (Minerva, July 1824), Benjamin Preston, John Witherbed and Richard Bosnell (Minerva, July 1824). The Lancaster list includes: John Atkinson (Minerva, July 1824), John Walmsley (Minerva, July 1824), John Arnold, William Walker (Medway, July 1825), William Smart (Minerva, July 1824), Robert Clegg (Medina, April 1825), Joseph Ramsbottom (Minerva, July 1824), George Partington (Medina, April 1825), George Jones (Lady East, November 1824), John Hordern (Sir Charles Forbes, November 1824), George Griffiths (Lady East, November 1824), Richard Marsden (Lady Nugent, December 1834), James Timperley, George Thompson (Sir Charles Forbes, November 1824), John Child, Paul Hesketh, John Hatton (England, March 1832, James Buckley (Minerva, July 1824), Peter Williamson (Sir Charles Forbes, November 1824), John Smith (William Metcalf, May 1834), Samuel Thornton (Medina, April 1825), W. H. Topping (Sir Charles Forbes, November 1824), John Moorby (Elphinstone, January 1836), William Thornton, Thomas Lynett, John McFarlane (Medway, July 1825), Jos.h Irving (Manlius, April 1827), John Johnston, William Garguin, and Peter Cunningham (Lady Nugent, July 1836). The Old Bailey prisoner list includes: F. H. Germaine (Triton, August 1842), John Bass (Marquis of Huntley May 1826), John Hutchins (Medina, April 1825), Richard Stagg (Hooghley, July 1834; or Bengal Merchant, August 1836), William Sykes (Minerva, 08 July 1824), Samuel Briggs (sentenced to death 1824, not transported), Joseph Thompson (Lady East, November 1824), William Thompson (Woodman, December 1825), James Thompson (Norfolk, May 1829), John A. Henley (Sir Charles Forbes, 23 November 1824), John Willis (Sir Charles Forbes, November 1824), Samuel Moore, John Gibson, Edward Salt (Medway, 28 July 1825), Peter Ryan (Minerva, July 1824), William Ludlow (Lady East November 1824), Thomas Oakes, John Kealer (Sir Charles Forbes, 23 November 1824), Edward Brimmell (Minerva, July 1824), William Clatterback, John Wales (Minerva, July 1824), James Whitby (Minerva, July 1824), Joseph Bolton (England, June 1835, William Fairchild (Guildford, March 1827), and Edmund Burton (Lady East, November 1824). The York prisoner list includes: Thomas Hunley Taylor, Als Thomas Hunley. 4pp, 8 x 12 1/2". Written on 2 sides, with the title of the warrant on the verso. A closed split at the center fold; short splits at contemporary horizontal folds, with no loss. In very good condition overall. On watermarked laid paper, with a crest at one side and "Weatherley 1823" on the other. Research for much of the above was obtained from the very fine site convictrecords.com.au, which is made possible by the State Library of Queensland. A remarkable and rare survival of Australia's convict history, signed by the King of England.

        La Decouverte des Sources du Mississippi et de la Riviere Sanglante. Description Du Cours entier du Mississippi .

      Benj. Levy, New Orleans 1824 - (8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches). [8],327,[1]pp. Errata slip. Uncut. Original blue paper-covered boards, expertly rebacked to style, paper spine label. The rare first edition of this Italian explorer's adventures in America. "[Beltrami] found his way to the upper reaches of the Mississippi River, where he joined an expedition led by Maj. Stephen Long. The latter wrote of him, 'an Italian whom we met at Fort St. Anthony, attached himself to the expedition and accompanied us to Pembina.' Beltrami subsequently traveled down the Mississippi to New Orleans" (Wagner-Camp). "He undertook a hazardous and lonely journey in his search for the sources of the Mississippi and other rivers, in which he claimed success" (Clark). An expanded English translation was printed in London in 1828, and included a folding map illustrating the routes travelled in America, detailing Beltrami's view of the geography of the headwaters of the Mississippi. The inclusion of the map in the later edition was in response to the criticism the author received for not providing a map in this, the first edition of the work. However, the present first edition, in French, is considerably more rare.

The latter wrote of him, 'an Italian whom we met at Fort St. Anthony, attached himself to the expedition and accompanied us to Pembina.' Beltrami subsequently traveled down the Mississippi to New Orleans" - Wagner-Camp. "He undertook a hazardous and lonely journey in his search for the sources of the Mississippi and other rivers, in which he claimed success" - Clark. An expanded English translation was printed in London in 1828, and included a folding map illustrating the routes travelled in America, detailing Beltrami's view of the geography of the headwaters of the Mississippi. The inclusion of the map in the later edition was in response to the criticism the author received for not providing a map in this, the first edition of the work. WAGNER-CAMP 26a:1. JUMONVILLE 417.

        Rosa Gallica Pontiana / Rosier du Pont

      [Paris: Firmin Didot], 1824. Stipple engraving, with expert later hand-colouring, by Bessin, after Redouté, printed by Rémond. Very good condition. A fine example of a composition by the greatest of all flower painters Pierre-Joseph Redouté's most famous work, 'Les Roses', was issued in a number of forms, the most desirable of which included the plates in two states. Gavin Bridson and Donald Wendel, in their magisterial 'Printmaking in the service of botany' catalogue (Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, 1986, item 25) noted that Redouté 'For the interest of connoisseurs' included `a set of black plates as a parallel series to the usual color-printed versions' in 'special issues' of both the present work and his earlier 'Les Liliacées'. The number of these special issues that were produced is unfortunately not recorded but to judge from auction records over the past 25 years they are extremely rare. Only five complete sets of 'Les Roses' in this format are recorded. The plates of 'Les Roses' were executed by means of stipple engraving, a method ideally suited to render the nuances of tone to be found in Redouté's original water-colours. During a trip to London, where he met the renowned and talented engraver Francesco Bartolozzi, Redouté learned that the most successful impressions of stipple engravings came from well-used plates. A number of black plates would thus be struck to take the edge off the plate before printing in colours. Redouté's printers struck black impressions - always on a paper with a distinct ochre tint - from the plates for both 'Les Roses' and 'Les Liliacées'. 'Les Roses' was issued in thirty parts between March 1817 and March 1824, with each part containing six plates. 'Les Roses' was available in four formats: a large paper folio with coloured plates, a large paper folio with the plates in two states, folio with coloured plates, and folio with the plates in two states. The present plate comes from this last format. This plate was printed in black on an ochre-tinted paper. The ochre tint was subsequently removed and the print was expertly hand-coloured to match the style and quality of the original coloured examples. Cf. Cleveland Collections 807; cf. Dunthorne p 232; cf. Hunt Redoutéana 19; cf. Hunt, Printmaking in the Service of Botany 25; cf. Nissen BBI 1599; cf. Pritzel 7455; cf. Ray French 89; cf. Stafleu and Cowan TL2 8748.

        Rosa Damascena / Rosier de Cels

      [Paris: Firmin Didot], 1824. Stipple engraving, by Chardin, after Redouté, printed by Rémond. Very good condition. A fine example of a composition by the greatest of all flower painters The present uncoloured plate was printed on ochre paper as it was realized that this gave a pleasing effect. The ochre background enhances the subtle gradations of tone achieved using the stipple engraving technique and gives a unique opportunity to appreciate the unrivalled artistry of both Pierre-Joseph Redouté himself and the master-craftsman he employed to translate his watercolour into a print of the highest quality. Redouté learned, whilst on a visit to London, that the most successful impressions of stipple engravings came from well-used plates. A number of black plates would thus be struck to take the edge off the plate before printing in colours. Redouté's printers struck black impressions - always on a paper with a distinct ochre tint - from the plates, and these early impressions were then combined with later colour-printed examples to form the de luxe issues of 'Les Roses'. Redouté's 'Les Roses' was issued in four formats: a large paper folio with coloured plates, a large paper folio with the plates in two states, folio with coloured plates, and folio with the plates in two states (the present plate comes from this final de luxe form). Gavin Bridson and Donald Wendel, in their magisterial 'Printmaking in the service of botany' catalogue (Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, 1986, item 25) noted that Redouté 'For the interest of connoisseurs' included `a set of black plates as a parallel series to the usual color-printed versions' in 'special issues' of both the present work and his earlier 'Les Liliacées'. The number of these special issues that were produced is unfortunately not recorded but to judge from auction records over the past twenty-five years they are extremely rare: only four complete sets of 'Les Roses' in this format are recorded. The present print therefore comes from an edition that was severely limited, and is certainly much rarer than its colour-printed equivalent. Cf. Cleveland Collections 807; cf. Dunthorne p 232; cf. Hunt Redoutéana 19; cf. Hunt, Printmaking in the Service of Botany 25; cf. Nissen BBI 1599; cf. Pritzel 7455; cf. Ray French 89; cf. Stafleu and Cowan TL2 8748.

        U.S. CONSUL HOLOGRAPHIC 'TRUE COPY' SEALED WITH THE UNITED STATES CONSULAR SEAL,

      Valparaiso 1824, U.S. Consulate. A large single sheet letter. folded 4 times, pen written by the Consulate, opens to be. 39.7 x 24.5 cm., folds down to be 19.8 x 7 cm., very clean. bright, no defects, with the Great Seal of United States. EARLY ORIGINAL HOLORAPHIC DOCUMENT, SEALED BY U.S. CONSUL embossed on the lower right. * This is a lovely document, entirely hand-written by the Consulate, Hon. Michael Hogan. Hogan certifies on March 16, 1824 this to be a "true copy" of a document originally written in Canton, China on Feb. 14, 1823, from Samuel Russell [1789-1862] to Captain Eliphalet Smith, instructing him to pay to the firm of Frost & Jenckes [commission agents] the proceed of his "adventure" shipped on the Brig "Macedonian" to Canton. * The letter is addressed to Capt. Eliphalet Smith, and is red wax sealed with a sheet of paper on top of the hot wax, then embossed with the "United States" Consulate's seal. * Frost & Jenckes in turn paid the money to William Wetmore. Russell was a young Connecticut entrepreneur who had first sailed to China five years before, had just founded his own company to import Chinese silk and tea, and most lucratively, illegally to smuggle Turkish Opium to the Chinese mainland. Within twenty years, Russell's company would become the largest American trading house in the China trade. * Later rivaling Russell was another Connecticut Yankee, William Wetmore, then a 23 year-old ex-sailor who had been stranded in Chile, where he saw the same opportunities for trading tea, silk and spiced. Though he would steadfastly refuse to deal in Opium An equally colorful figure was Captain Smith, who had once been force to pay $100,000 in bribes and ransom to a Spanish commodore in Peru who had arrested his crew and seized his cargo of Cocoa bound for China. * The verso of the letter shows "An attested copy of Samual Russell...on Capt. Eliphalet Smith." ** WHO WAS SAMUEL RUSSELL: Attracted by financial prospects, Russell set out for China, an assured profitable venture. He arrived in Canton, China, in 1819, engaging in trade on behalf of the Providence firm of Edward Carrington & Company in various goods and products including opium, an extremely profitable activity despite being outlawed-yet protected by foreign forces. . The profits made by Russell enabled him to found Russell & Company in Canton, China, in 1824. Dealing mostly in silks, teas and opium, Russell & Company prospered, and by 1842, it had become the largest American trading house in China. It kept its dominance until its closing in 1891. Russell withdrew from the company in 1836. He returned to America, and lived in his mansion in his hometown of Middletown, Connecticut, until his death in 1862. The mansion, now bearing the name of Samuel Wadsworth Russell House, (his son's name, Samuel had no middle name) had an elaborately-decorated interior; Russell had brought back many souvenirs and antiques from China, as well as gifts from his Chinese trade partner, Howqua *** WHO WAS CAPT. ELIPHALET SMITH: Eliphalet Smith fought as a Privateer during the American Revolution. See reference below for a similar letter of the period to Capt. He was also the ship Captain of the commercial Brig "Macedonian" that plied the S. China Seas, and Canton. *** A fascinating original period document, seldom found on the market these days. * REFERENCES: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samuel_Russell * Concerning Capt. Eliphalet Smith: An 1818 letter from J.L. Ellery to Capt.

        Vingt-Quatre Heures d'une Femme Sensible, ou Une Grande Leçon.

      Arthus Bertrand, Paris 1824 - Octavo. Contemporary quarter black skiver, blue boards, spine gilt in compartments. Engraved frontispiece. 1 leaf of publisher¿s ads at rear. Spine rolled, binding rubbed, spotting and toning of contents, primarily in the margins. A very good copy. First edition, first impression. Author Constance de Salm (1767-1845) was a highly regarded French writer and moral philosopher, and an important member of a circle of leading intellectuals and scientists. Though forgotten for much of the 19th and 20th centuries, she is now the subject of renewed academic interest, providing a window onto the lives and intellectual networks of women in Revolutionary and Napoleonic France. De Salm spent most of her life promoting the equality of women, and her most important work, the poem Épître aux femmes (1797), was a direct attack on the language and social structures that uphold patriarchy, as well as an exhortation to women to liberate themselves. During her career ¿she used a variety of genres to address issues of importance to women, such as equal access to educational opportunities and to family courts, recognition of intellectual achievement, the infantilization of women and the denigration of their abilities, the cost to women¿s health of reproduction, and adequately renumerated work for poor, widowed, and single women. In many ways she can be usefully compared to Mary Wollstonecraft¿¿ (Hine, Constance de Salm, p. 4). De Salm¿s friendships with scientists were an important part of her intellectual life. She was close to the astronomer Joseph-Jérome Lalande, who left her his unpublished manuscripts and asked her to write his eulogy. ¿Not only did she know Lalande well enough to have him entrust her with securing his legacy, but she was acquainted with renowned scientists like the natural philosopher Auguste de Candolle, the botany professor at the Jardin du Roi, Antoine de Jussieu, the naturalist Alexander von Humboldt¿ all of whom were among her circle of friends and frequented her salon¿ Her involvement can be used to illustrate the shift from earlier philosophical debates among scientists to the increasing interest on the part of women in scientific culture in the latter part of the eighteenth and the early part of the nineteenth centuries ¿ (Hine pp. 2-3). The present text, Twenty-Four Hours in the Life of a Sensitive Woman, is an epistolary novel exploring the mindset of a woman whose lover may have abandoned her for another. It was praised by her friend, the author Stendhal and is now rare in the first edition. We can locate only one institutional copy, at the British Library. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
