        Introductory Report to a System of Penal Law Prepared for the State...

      1824. New Orleans: Benjamin Levy & Co., 1824. First Issue of the Introductory Report to Livingston's Louisiana System of Penal Law [Livingston, Edward (1764-1836)]. Introductory Report to a System of Penal Law Prepared for the State of Louisiana [headline title]. [New Orleans: Benjamin Levy & Co., 1824]. 185 pp. Recent period-style quarter calf over marbled boards, lettering piece and gilt fillets to spine. Light toning to text, negligible light foxing in a few places. Ex-library. Small inkstamp to head of p. 1. $2,000. * First edition. Livingston's Penal 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. The Introductory Report reviews the issues addressed by the Code. Bibliographically distinct, it was probably transmitted to the Louisiana General Assembly with the Code, a point suggested by its first sentence: "I lay before the General Assembly, with unaffected diffidence, the System which they directed me to prepare" (1). Bibliographic data is not included in the first edition of the Introductory Report, but Jumanville and Korn attribute the printing to Levy. Hicks, Men and Books Famous in the Law 180.

It was, in effect, a cover sheet. He explains the nature of the code and asks his readers "to note in the margin such observations as occur to you for its amelioration, and to communicate them to me with your first leisure. He ends his letter with a request for "the aid of your learning, experience, and judgment, to supply what is deficient, and to correct what is erroneous in the work." Plumer, the recipient of this copy was an important New Hampshire lawyer, politician and Baptist lay preacher. He is best known for his efforts to convert Dartmouth College into a public institution while governor of New Hampshire, a post he held in 1812-1813 and 1816-1819. His efforts resulted in the great U.S. Supreme Court case Trustees of Dartmouth College v. Woodward. Livingston's circular is a rare item. However, a few copies are found today bound into copies of the System. Shaw and Shoemaker, American Imprints 16927.

        Sketches of the Principal Picture-Galleries in England (with a Criticism on 'Marriage-a-la-Mode')

      London: Taylor and Hessey, 1824. Newly restored, this item has been quarterbound in calfskin with brilliantly marbled paper over boards. The spine is gold-tooled as is the red leather spine-label. New endpapers. 195pps., plus 5 pages of advertisements in the back. The text is in good condition and -- consistent with its age -- has the sporadic soiling, thumbing, and tearing; it is, nonetheless, whole and bright with very little in the way of foxing. A couple of pages (only) have notations in the margins and the signature of an early owner (of the same dipped pen) is neatly placed in the top corner of the title-page. A scarce item and, now, with repairs, quite presentable. Hazlitt is widely considered one of the great English critics and essayists. He influenced a good many of his contemporaries. As Keats said of him: his work is like 'a whale's back in a sea of prose.' Chapters include: Mr. Angerstein's Collection, Dulwich Gallery, The Marquis of Stafford's Gallery, Pictures at Windsor Castle, Pictures at Hampton Court, Lord Grosvenor's Collection, Pictures at Wilton and Stourhead, Pictures at Burleigh House, and Pictures at Oxford and Blenheim.

Although this was the author's only work -- his life being cut short by scarlet fever -- in it he anticipates both the first and second law of thermodynamics. Carnot's work was born out of the need to improve the new two-cylinder compound steam engine developed in the first part of the century. Instead of focusing on the properties of steam, as others had done, Carnot proposed a general theory of heat as a motive force. As PMM notes: "the book was essentially an attempt to calculate the mechanical equivalent of heat." Carnot's work was to profoundly influence Helmholtz and Joule and led directly to the enunciation of the theory of the conservation of energy by Helmholtz. The second law of thermodynamics is also implicit in Carnot's treatise... Carnot's... researches led also to the absolute scale of temperature" (PMM). Only 600 copies of the work were printed. Near Fine.

        A modest Lafayette turns down a chauffeur driven ride from John Q. Adams : " you know that I have asked the United States President not to dispatch the National vessel that Congress had the kindness to decide to dispatch" as he prepares for his Revolutionary War "Heros welcome" tour of the United States in 1824.

      Paris, France, June 20, 1824. 6.75" x 7.75". "Bi-fold page ALS scripted entirely in the hand of Lafayette, 6.75"" x 7.75"", scripted on the recto of the first page, with verso blank, and the second blank leaf laid in to a backing page. Expected folds, small pencil marks outside of margins. Signed and dated by Lafayette, ""Paris 20 Juin 1824"", ""Lafayette"". Accompanied by a full English translation, an engraved portrait of him, 5"" x 7.5"" and documented provenance will as noted below. Near fine condition.A lovely ALS in which Lafayette alludes to his pending travels to the US, which he pens just a month before his arrival in July 1824. From July 1824 to September 1825, the last surviving French general of the Revolutionary War, the Marquis de Lafayette, made a tour of the 24 United States. This was in request by President James Monroe who desired to initiate the ""spirit of 1776"" in the next generation of Americans and partly to celebrate the nation's 50th anniversary.The Marquis de Lafayette led troops alongside George Washington in the American Revolution over 40 years earlier. He fought in several crucial battles, including the Battle of Brandywine in Pennsylvania and the Siege of Yorktown in Virginia. The Marquis had returned to France and pursued a political career championing the ideals of liberty that the fledgling U.S. republic represented. While the Bourbon constitutional monarchy had been in place in France for at least ten years, in the spring of 1824, King Louis XVIII was wheelchair bound and suffering from severe health issues that would prove fatal by late summer. Further, Lafayette was being monitored by the dying King. His letter which discusses the preparations for his trip is transcribed into English below:TRANSLATION FROM FRENCH""Paris, June 20, 1824 You have asked me, Monsieur, to let you know the time of my departure to the United States it is not precisely set; nevertheless I see that I will benefit from an American liner which will set sail from Le Havre on July 10th at the earliest, 20th at the latest, I will ask my passport as soon as after tomorrow; you know that I have asked the United States President not to dispatch the National vessel that Congress had the kindness to decide to dispatch. I am going to La Grange [see note]; I will go back to Paris July 4th for the American dinner, and if I leave the 10th I will arrive the 8th or 9th in the evening; in case the vessel would leave a few days later I will give them to my family [the extra days.] Positive information will reach me only after an expected vessel enters Le Havre; it would have been too late to let you know my start which due to unforeseen circumstanceswas only known to myself last night; I have informed the vessel administration in Le Havre that a passenger would probably be coming right away, but without committing yourself until I have received your answer to please send to Paris rue d'Anjou or at La Grange par Rozav Seine et Marne +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++scratch++++Please do not let your friends announce the time of my expected departure that I would not want to have to determine the schedule for the little time that I have left for my family. If your affairs allow to prefer the vessel on which I have to leave to the United States, it would greatly satisfy me; if you could only leave later I will take your commissions and I will wait for you in this good country with the hope to meet you there soon. At any case please accept the very sincere expression of myhigh consideration and my attachment.Lafayette""Provenance: This item was recently discovered in an extra illustrated volume of “History of the City of New York” by Mary L. Booth, New York W. R. C. Clark, 1867. Originally two volumes, the monumental task of expanding the work to 21 volumes by none other than Emery E. Childs esquire of New York City. In volume 1 of this work exists a lovely india ink Drawing of Mary L. Booth along with a notation ”presented by her to E E C” in pencil. Next to the title page we find an original letter of Booth to Childs dated April 4, 1872 “ I am in receipt of your favor of the 4th inst., and am grateful to hear that you are taking the trouble to illustrate my History of the City of New York in the manner you describe. I shall be happy to see you, should you favor me with a callas I am usually in my office during business hours and should be pleased to facilitate your Enterprise by any means in my power”It is assumed that the book took several years to assemble at which point, assumedly through Childs, it made its way to Senator Charles B. Farwell of Chicago who took the seat of John A. Logan in 1887. Farwell had an extensive library that fortunately survived the great Chicago fire in 1871 having been housed in his Lakeside home. In the American Bibliopolist of November 1871 there is an article about the devastation to libraries caused by the tragedy . “Mr C. B. Farwell’s library is also fortunately far out from the city, at his country house, and is safe, The same remark will also apply to the extensive collection of books and curiosities belonging to Mr. E. E. Childs.” This establishes the Chicago connection between Childs and Farwell.That these letters were preserved for over 140 years and have never been on the market for that period is remarkable on many levels. It is the state of being wedged in these volumes that also account for what is mostly the pristine state of preservation. "

        LESSONS FOR CHILDREN. From Two to Three years Old. [From Three to Four years Old.] In Two Parts.

      Two parts bound as one, as with its own frontispiece and title-page. 95; 143 pages. Original quarter red roan. First published in 1778 in London. This printing is rare, WorldCat recording one copy only in Trinity College, Dublin. However, that copy differs in having continuous pagination throughout the two volumes. Anna Laetitia Barbauld [1743 -1825) was a prominent English poet, essayist, literary critic, editor, and children's author.But her career ended abruptly in 1812 with the publication of Eighteen Hundred and Eleven, a work which criticized Britain's participation in the Napoleonic Wars. The savagery of the reviews shocked Barbauld, and she published nothing else during her lifetime. Though her reputation has been in some part restored, today she is best remembered as a children's writer and educationalist.

Rara edizione originale di uno dei testi fondamentali dell'Indipendenza Americana. Nato a Potenza, nel Regno di Napoli, Vicente (Vincenzo) Filisola si è unito all'esercito spagnolo in giovane età e fù inviato in Messico nel 1811. A quel tempo gli spagnoli cercavano di sottomettere il movimento di indipendenza del Messico. Arrivato lì, però, Filisola decise di abbracciare la causa degli insorti e si mise a combattere per l'indipendenza del Messico. Fu il primo patriota ad entrare nel capitale liberata del Messico il 24 settembre 1821. Nel 1823 fù inviato dal presidente Agustín de Iturbide (1783-1824) in Honduras e Guatemala in un momento in cui Iturbide voleva annettere queste due regioni nell'impero messicano. L'annessione causò una rivolta in El Salvador, guidato dal leader Guatemalteco José Francisco Barrundia (1787-1854), che fu poi eletto presidente delle Province Unite dell'America Centrale. Dopo l'abdicazione di Iturbide, nel 1823, Filisola convocò un Congresso dell'America Centrale che il 1 ° luglio 1823 decretò la nascita di una federazione di cinque stati, che comprendeva il Messico, Guatemala, Honduras. Più tardi Filisola diventò un amico e confidente del generale Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna e nel 1833 fu nominato generale di divisione. Nel 1836 prese parte alla rivoluzione texana, di cui alcuni anni dopo pubblicò un lungo libro di memorie (Memorias para la Historia de la Guerra de Tejas, Messico, 1849). Durante la guerra messicano-americana, nel 1848, fù nominato dal presidente messicano comandante di una delle tre divisioni dell'esercito messicano. Filisola morì nel 1850, poche settimane dopo la sua nomina a presidente del Tribunale Supremo guerra. A. Ávila, J. Dym & E.

        Spectacular document signed by Red Jacket and 10 other Seneca chiefs

      New York, June 15, 1824. 7.875” x 9.875”. "Single page annuity receipt inscribed in elegant script on watermarked cream paper, featuring signature marks of eleven chiefs of the Seneca Nation including that of Red Jacket (c. 1750-1830), which appears in the left column four entries from the top. The marks of other Seneca chiefs include Young King (1760-1835), Captain Pollard, Black Snake (1760-1859), Jim Robinson, Charles O’Bail, Little Beard (d. 1806), Peter King, Jimmy Hudson, Canada, and Young Chief Welincor. Three witnesses signed the document, including E.C. Hickson, Charles Norton, and former Indian captive and interpreter Horatio Jones. In extremely fine condition, with J. & L. watermark at bottom, measuring 7.875” x 9.875”. Inscribed verso is the following docket, “Seneca Nation, Recpt. $500, June 1824, Duplicate”.This intriguing receipt, signed by almost a dozen powerful local chieftains of the Seneca Nation, gives us some insight into the administrative dynamics of early 19th C. American Indian policy. During the 1820s, many Indian tribes lived according to terms dictated by state and federal government. Oftentimes this included ceding their lands in exchange for annuities. This document cites as a precedent the September 13, 1815 treaty signed by then Governor Daniel D. Tompkins (1774-1825) in Buffalo. (Tompkins was a multiple term New York state governor as well as Vice President during the Monroe administration.) The 1815 treaty concerned the sale of several islands in the Niagara River from the Seneca to the state of New York for an outright purchase price of $1000 and a perpetual annuity of $500. Our letter acknowledges receipt of one such annuity granted in 1824. The 1815 treaty was controversial because it was only signed by some Senecas, among whom included two of our signees, Red Jacket and Colonel Pollard.During the onset of the Revolutionary War, the Seneca along with the five other nations in the Iroquois Confederacy initially resisted choosing sides in the colonial conflict. Eventually, the confederacy divided with only the Tuscarora and the Oneida contributing in significant ways to the American cause. The Seneca allied with the British, participating in many devastating raids in the Delaware and Susquehanna Valley. The United States confiscated many Seneca lands after 1783 in retaliation. Red Jacket served as a representative of the Seneca Nation during the early years of the American Republic. His Seneca name Sagoyewatha or “Keeper Awake” testified to his ability to interest listeners. Red Jacket was one of approximately fifty signees of the 1794 Treaty of Canandaigua, which restored friendly relations between the United States and the former members of the Iroquois Confederacy, and reaffirmed previous land boundaries. His name and mark appear frequently in important historical documents like this one. Ex: Parke-Bernet Galleries, New York Collection, c. Norton Owen, May 15, 1970."

II chipped with a little loss, but the bindings, while fragile, are firm. According to the preface, each of the volumes was separately published, and consequently this may account for the paucity of complete copies.

        De l'influence des agens physiques sur la vie.

      Paris, Crochard, 1824. ____ Première édition. C'est avec cette oeuvre qu'Edwards apparaît comme un précurseur de l'écologie. Il y rapporte ces expériences sur l'influence de l'air, de l'eau, de la lumière, de la chaleur et de l'électricité sur les organismes vivants. "Edwards devoted much time to the study of the influence of environmental factors on the "animal economy". His main idea was that vital processes depend on external physical and chemical forces but are not entirely controlled by them. Life is different from heat, light, or electricity, forces which, however, contribute to the production of vital phenomena. (...) Edward's book is a classic pioneer work on animal ecology."

"Mineralogical investigations, particulary experiments with carbonates and other salts, revealed to Beudant a principle of the combination of mineral substance that he expressed in Beudant's law. Essentially, he found that some compounds dissolved in the same solution would precipitate together, forming a crystal whose properties they determined in common. The interfacial angles of this new crystal would have a value intermediate between the angles of the original compounds, proportional to the quantity of each." DSB 2, 106.

        Séances Nautiques, ou exposé des Diverses Manoeuvres du Vaisseau...

      Paris: Bachelier, 1824. Octavo, with a folding plate; a fine copy, uncut and unpressed, in the original pink mottled wrappers with printed paper label. A fine association copy, affectionately inscribed by the author to Henri de Freycinet. Henri de Freycinet, older brother of Louis, served as lieutenant on board the Géographe during the Baudin expedition to Australia of 1800-1804. He was responsible for much of the mapping of the Australian coastline, and on his return was keenly involved in promoting the atlas of the voyage in France. Henri had joined the navy in 1794 and went on to a long and distinguished career, including a great deal of action against the British. He lost his right arm in battle in 1806, and was twice imprisoned. He attained the rank of rear admiral in 1828 and also served as governor of Ile Bourbon (Réunion).Pierre-Marie-Joseph de Bonnefoux (1782-1855), French naval captain and veteran of the Napoleonic era, was captured by the British in 1806 and detained for an extended time, providing him with the opportunity to observe innovations of the Royal Navy such as the flag telegraph system. With the Restoration, Bonnefoux was made a Knight of St. Louis and member of the Legion d'Honneur. Appointed to the Royal marine college at Angoulême, he prepared several standard works of naval instruction, of which Séances Nautiques is an example. Later in life he wrote a life of Christopher Columbus. At one time he was under the command of Henri de Freycinet, as he notes in his foreword where he speaks of having prepared this work for the naval students at Rochefort, then under Freycinet's direction. On the blank page opposite this is Bonnefoux's warm personal inscription to 'Mr. Henri de Freycinet, Capne. De Vaisseau &c. &c. &c. Hommage d'attachement, de reconnaissance, de Respect, De la part de l'auteur'. Faded spine.

        An exposé of the conduct of the Victualling Board to the Honorable Basil Cochrane, as contractor and agent victualler to His Majesty's ships on the East India station. To which are annexed, proofs of the zeal and exertions of Mr. Cochrane for the public service.

      London: printed by J. Davy. 1824. 8vo., (7) + vi = vii + (1) + 120pp., including the half-title, the text folowed by 5 large folding tables of contract accounts, contingent accounts, abstracts, and disbursements, original boards with printed label (slightly defective) on upper cover, printed spine label, head of spine chipped, upper joint splitting, but a fine, crisp, presentation copy inscribed in ink by Cochrane 'Robert Wm. Newman Esq. M.P.> (1776-1848), then the M.P. for Exeter. First and only edition and seemingly of great rarity (a copy in the BL but not found elsewhere by COPAC or OCLC). Basil Cochrane (1753-1826) was a Scottish civil servant, businessman, inventor, and wealthy nabob of early 19th century England. The sixth son of Scottish nobleman and politician Thomas Cochrane, 8th Earl of Dundonald, Basil Cochrane at the age of sixteen (in 1769) was given a place with the East India Company in Madras. In 1792 he took over supply contracts for the British navy in India from his brother John, who had held them since 1790. The demand for provisions was so great that Basil had flour mills and bakeries built at Calcutta and Madras to fulfil his contracts. He returned to England in 1806 having accumulated an enormous fortune (he had held contracts over the years totalling £1,418,236) but spent the next 13 years disputing his accounts with the Victualling Board. After Cochrane's accounts were finally settled in 1819, he published several pamphlets criticizing the Victualling Board's conduct towards him and calling for reforms in the process.
