        Ohio and Indiana . Improved to 1825

      H. S. Tanner, Philadelphia 1825 - Copper-engraving with full period color. An important early mapping of Ohio and Indiana: the significant second issue, reflecting new boundaries in northern Indiana created by Indian treaties. Henry Tanner's A New American Atlas , was the most distinguished atlas published in America during the nineteenth century. The maps were carefully constructed from the best and most recent surveys. They were finely engraved on a large-scale, printed on high quality paper, and carefully hand colored. Because of the great expense involved in the production and publication, the atlas was published in five parts between 1819 and 1823. The map of Ohio and Indiana originally appeared in the second part of the atlas, published in 1819. Tanner drew upon a number of important surveys, including those of Bourne, Ellicott, Volney, Darby, Kilbourn, and others. The first issue of the map is noted as being one of the earliest maps of Indiana as a state (1816). This second revised edition of the map from 1823, however, reflects the enormous changes in the region. Besides the addition of numerous counties in western Ohio, the mapping of northern Indiana changed completely following a series of Indian treaties in 1818 and 1819, including the important October 1818 Treaty of St. Mary's with the Miami. Virtually all of Indiana north of the Wabash is shown as the land of the Miami. The Delawares, who had ceded their Indiana lands in October 1818, are no longer mentioned. Several counties now appear in the state north of the 40th parallel. Other changes include the additions of many new roads, including a lengthy trail extending from Fort Wayne to Fort Dearborn. Phillips, Atlases, 3669-12 ;cf. Ristow, American Maps and Mapmakers , pps. 191-198; Rumsey 2755.012; cf. Sabin 94323.

His father, Baron John Keating, of Irish ancestry, had been an officer in the French army in the West Indies and had settled in Wilmington, Delaware. He was educated at the University of Pennsylvania, and then in France and Switzerland, where he studied mining. In 1822, he became Professor of Chemistry and Mineralogy at the University of Pennsylvania and a member of the American Philosophical Society. He is perhaps best known for his work on the staff of Stephen Long's expedition to the Great Lakes in 1823, an account of which he published in 1824. In the account he first hypothesized the existence of what is now known as Lake Agassiz. Formed at the end of the last ice age during the retreat of the great North American glaciers Lake Agassiz was, at its peak, much larger than any currently existing lake. The tremendous significance of the discovery has come to be appreciated in recent decades because the draining of Lake Agassiz into the North Atlantic Ocean is now generally thought to have been responsible for sudden periods of cooling of Northern Hemisphere climate at the end of the Pleistocene. The most dramatic of these periods of cooling is known as the Younger Dryas.Condition:Minor tears at map folds, foxing to title and frontispiece, some offset darkening to title else a very good set.

        Signed Manuscript Letter Regarding a Plan for Fighting Fire in Boston.

      July 2, 1825., Sag Harbor, Long Island, NY: - Letter sheets (8" x 12") 3 pages plus integral address leaf. Extensive tape repairs to folds, mostly archival tape, but some regular tape too, which has caused a little browning in areas, long tear obscures writers signature, but partially visible, creased, normal aging and browning, remnant of wax seal; otherwise good or better. The letter is to Boston Mayor Josiah Quincy (1772-1864), a future head of Harvard and served eight years in Congress. It appears after becoming Boston's mayor he sent delegates to New York and Philadelphia to study fire fighting techniques in those cities. The author of this letter read about this mission, and sent Mayor Quincy a lengthy letter on the subject. The probable author is Solon Robinson (1803-1880), although his signature is partially obscured by a tear. However, on the back page, a smudged docketed note identifies him as Solon Robertson or Robinson. Robinson was a writer, and would become a well known Indiana pioneer. In any case, the author would suggest a far more modern system for fighting fires, than the existing practice of engines carrying water to fires, which would become useless when the water ran out. he proposed putting lead aqueduct pipes "laid deep underground and leading to every part of the city." While her does not use the term fire hydrants, the water would be accessed from locked iron covers that would serve that function. ABN.

        Forty-six fine watercolours elegantly bound in a nineteenth-century album.

      Probaly Venice: The illustrations date from 1795 to 1825. An exquisite suite of watercolours, including a beautiful series of scenes documenting a Venetian commedia dell'arte troupe, by the Italian artist Francesco Novelli. Francesco Novelli (1767-1836), one of the preeminent artists of his generation, lived in Venice where he was best known for his outstanding book illustration. He enjoyed a long and successful career that culminated in the landmark editions of Don Quixote (1819) and Gil Blas (1820). Novelli is also known for illustrating works such as the Fasti Veneziani (1794), hinting at his abiding interest in the theatre and the performing arts. In this unmatched collection of Novelli's watercolours, the greatest number are piquant images of a troupe of the commedia dell'arte, with especially fine depictions of Pierrot himself, as well as other key figures such as Columbine and Harlequin. There is a remarkable series of scenes from a play, as well as studies of individual performers, many so precisely rendered that it is almost certain Novelli is depicting a known troupe. The remaining images cover all aspects of contemporary life, including several military vignettes (perhaps scenes from the diorama) as well as charming rural scenes. Several show Novelli's work at its most sympathetic, especially in his studies of street vendors and town squares. Many of these scenes derive from a period when the troupe was on the road. Some of the liveliest paintings depict street performers, conjurors and Punch and Judy shows. Unpublished, although the compilation of the album suggests this might have been Novelli's original intention. An exceptional collection, incomparably rare, and providing a wonderful insight into Italian theatre of the Golden Age. Small oblong quarto, 185 x 275mm, a beautiful album containing 46 fine watercolours of various sizes and shapes ranging from delicate circular vignettes to larger scenes of urban and theatrical life, elegantly bound in nineteenth-century ochre morocco, ornately gilt.

Mais au cours de cette mission, sous un climat ambiant pénible, Hiram Cox trouva la mort en 1798. Ses papiers et son journal furent ensuite récupérés par son fils Henry, qui les publia en 1821 à Londres, sous le titre de "The Journal of a Residence in the Burman Empire", soit plus de vingt ans après la parution de l'ouvrage du major Michael Symes, qui avait aussi participé à la première mission ("An account of an Embassy of the Kingdom of Ava.", Londres, 1800). "Complément indispensable" du voyage de Symes, la relation de Cox livre un témoignage précieux sur la Birmanie, une "contrée tellement peu connue, que son nom semble [.] se révéler pour la première fois à l'Europe" (p. XI de l'Avertissement). Ouvrage enrichi d'un grand nombre de notes et d'un essai historique sur l'empire des Birmans, par Chaalons d'Argé (1798-1869). Quelques rousseurs, dos légèrement passé.

        Military Laws of the United States; to which is Prefixed the Constitu

      , 1825. 1825. UNITED STATES. WAR DEPT. Military Laws of the United States; to which is Prefixed the Constitution of the United States. By Trueman Cross. Washington: Edward De Krafft, 1825. xxxi, [1], 279 p. Contemporary sheep. Foxed, binding scuffed but very tight and solid. William G. McNeill's copy, signed and dated 1827 on the title page and with his name neatly lettered in ink on the front cover. In a portfolio and fine morocco-backed slipcase. First edition of the first attempt to fully codify the military laws of the United States. Preceded by the Constitution, the work contains the texts of all laws pertaining to the military in the United States, beginning in 1776 and continuing through 1824, including a comprehensive 17-page index. The book was compiled by Trueman Cross under the authority of the War Department. Cross was a career military officer and is often considered the first important fatality of the Mexican War, having been killed by Mexican banditti on the Rio Grande near Fort Texas in April 1846. This copy belonged to William G. McNeill, an army topographical engineer who left the service in the late 1820s to become a railroad engineer. He supervised the surveying and construction of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad and eventually became one of the foremost railroad engineers in the country. Cross's book, though owned by several libraries, is very rare in trade. No copy appears in the auction records from the mid- 1970s onward, and it is unlisted in Shoemaker's American Imprints. This is a lovely copy, in the original binding, with a fine provenance.

        Signed Manuscript Letter Regarding a Plan for Fighting Fire in Boston.

      Sag Harbor, Long Island, NY: , July 2, 1825. Letter sheets (8" x 12") 3 pages plus integral address leaf. Extensive tape repairs to folds, mostly archival tape, but some regular tape too, which has caused a little browning in areas, long tear obscures writers signature, but partially visible, creased, normal aging and browning, remnant of wax seal; otherwise good or better. The letter is to Boston Mayor Josiah Quincy (1772-1864), a future head of Harvard and served eight years in Congress. It appears after becoming Boston's mayor he sent delegates to New York and Philadelphia to study fire fighting techniques in those cities. The author of this letter read about this mission, and sent Mayor Quincy a lengthy letter on the subject. The probable author is Solon Robinson (1803-1880), although his signature is partially obscured by a tear. However, on the back page, a smudged docketed note identifies him as Solon Robertson or Robinson. Robinson was a writer, and would become a well known Indiana pioneer. In any case, the author would suggest a far more modern system for fighting fires, than the existing practice of engines carrying water to fires, which would become useless when the water ran out. he proposed putting lead aqueduct pipes "laid deep underground and leading to every part of the city." While her does not use the term fire hydrants, the water would be accessed from locked iron covers that would serve that function. ABN.

      1825 - 3 pages et quart in-4. Belle lettre du fils de Lafyette de retour des Etats-Unis avec son père. « Depuis que nous avons quitté la Nouvelle-Orléans il y a neuf jours, nous avons déjà fait à peu près quatre cent lieues en bateau à vapeur sur le Mississipi ; et demain nous arrivons à hauteur de l'embouchure de l'Ohio. Nous avons déjà fait par conséquent la partie la plus considérable et la plus fatigante d'un voyage de 1800 lieues que nous avions en contemplation en partant de Washington City. Mon père a soutenu cette fatigue comme auroit pu le faire un homme de trente ans ; il est vrai qu'on a bien de la force quand on est porté en triomphe par une nation comme celle-ci. Dans cinq mois j'espère que nous serons avec vous, je commence à en avoir bien besoin ». Il rend compte d'une démarche auprès d'un débiteur de son ami et le charge de faire parvenir une lettre à l'ami Saint-Amand. « Que de belles et bonnes choses on voit ici mon respectable ami [.]. Mon Pays, mes amis qui me sont conservés, le souvenir de ceux qui m'ont été enlevés, occupent tout mon coeur en commun avec la reconnoissance envers les grands citoyens de ce pays modèle ».

Minimal berieben, sonst tadellos aus dem Nachlaß Gerhard LöwenthalAgathon Jean François Fain (* 11. Januar 1778 in Paris, Frankreich; † 14. September 1837 ebenda) war Baron und Geheimsekretär Napoleons I.Er war sehr früh in den Büros der Nationalversammlung angestellt, 1793 Sekretär des Militärausschusses des Nationalkonvents und 1796 Divisionschef der Archive sowie bald darauf Staatssekretär, kam 1806 als Archivsekretär in das geheime Kabinett des Kaisers, wurde 1807 Requetenmeister, 1809 zum Baron und Anfang 1813 zum Geheimsekretär des Kaisers ernannt. Diesen begleitete er auf allen seinen Zügen bis zur Abdankung in Fontainebleau, wo er die Abdikationsakte entwarf. Die Restauration raubte ihm seine Stelle als Vorsteher des französischen Archivs, doch trat er nach Napoleons Rückkehr wieder in seine frühere Stellung. Nach der zweiten Restauration ohne Anstellung, wurde er erst 1830 erster Kabinettssekretär Ludwig Philipps, 1832 Generalintendant der Zivilliste, Staatsrat und Großoffizier der Ehrenlegion, 1834 Deputierter. Er starb am 14. September 1837. Napoleon Bonaparte, als Kaiser Napoleon I. (französisch Napoléon Bonaparte oder Napoléon Ier; * 15. August 1769 in Ajaccio auf Korsika als Napoleone Buonaparte[1]; † 5. Mai 1821 in Longwood House auf St. Helena im Südatlantik), war ein französischer General, Staatsmann und Kaiser.Aus korsischer Familie stammend, stieg Bonaparte während der Französischen Revolution in der Armee auf. Er erwies sich als ein militärisches Talent ersten Ranges. Vor allem die Feldzüge in Italien und in Ägypten machten ihn populär und zu einem politischen Hoffnungsträger. Dies ermöglichte ihm, durch den Staatsstreich des 18. Brumaire VIII (9. November 1799) die Macht in Frankreich zu übernehmen. Zunächst von 1799 bis 1804 als Erster Konsul der Französischen Republik und anschließend bis 1814 als Kaiser der Franzosen stand er einem halbdiktatorischen Regime mit plebiszitären Elementen vor.Durch verschiedene Reformen...

This was a relatively common view during the early nineteenth century, as most Europeans and Americans had a view of history as biblical.[1] Numerous commentators on Mormon history, from LDS Church general authority B. H. Roberts to Fawn M. Brodie, biographer of Joseph Smith, have noted similarities in the content of View of the Hebrews and the Book of Mormon, which was first published in 1830, seven years after Ethan Smith's book".

The terminal leaf consists of an extensive list of additions and corrections, with an advert for the second Yorkshire Festival. Appendices relate to organizational matters, as well as a history of the "noblest of all instruments," the Organ. The pictorial plates were engraved by John Browne after drawings by Edward Finden - the frontis has a pasted cancel slip correcting the name of the dedicatee.

E duobus al-Codurii codicibus", which presents a selection from the Mukhtasar of al-Quduri, a legal epitome of composed 973–1037 by a leading Sunni fakih, jurist, of the Hanafi school, extracts discussing the legal ramifications of Islamic war against infidels; "Zohairi Carmen al-moallakah appellatum. Cum scholiis Zuzenii integris et Nachasi selectis e codicibus manuscriptis" offers a translation with scholia of the Moallaka of Ka'b ibn Zuhair, pre-Islamic poet; and "Syria descripta a Scherifo el-Edrisio et Khalil ben-Schahin Dhaheri. E codicibus Bodleianis" an extract from al-Idrisi's universal geography of those parts discussing Syria. Rosenmüller (1768–1835), the son of an evangelical theologian, became a professor at the University of Leipzig, firstly in Arabic, 1796, and subsequently in oriental languages from 1813. A pioneering effort to make the texts of important Arabic manuscripts available to scholars and to open them to a wider readership with Latin translations and scholarly notes.

        LIONEL LINCOLN; or, The Leaguer of Boston

      1825. [unopened, in original boards] In Two Volumes. By the Author of The Pioneers, Pilot, &c. New-York: Published by Charles Wiley | D. Fanshaw, Printer, 1825 [1824 in Vol II]. Original drab paper-covered boards with printed spine labels. First Edition of this "Legend of the Thirteen Republics" (per the fly-titles). This was Cooper's fifth book, following PRECAUTION (1820), THE SPY (1821), THE PIONEERS (1823) and THE PILOT (1824). After this Cooper decided that he would launch a series of thirteen novels of historical fiction, one for each of the original colonies -- beginning here with Massachusetts. Set during the Revolutionary War, Lionel Lincoln was a Boston-born member of a British noble family -- who accordingly faced conflicts and split loyalties during the War. Neither Cooper nor the public thought much of this novel, so he abandoned the project -- and with his next novel, would hit a home run (get it? -- Cooperstown?) with THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS (1826).~LIONEL LINCOLN first came out in two volumes in New York, as here, on February 5, 1825; later in February it was published in three volumes by John Miller in London. As Blanck points out, it is curious how significantly the two title pages differ from each other: first and foremost, Vol I is dated 1825 and Vol II is dated 1824; but also, "In Two Volumes" appears in Vol I only, there is no "The" before "Pioneers" in Vol II, and "Vol I" and "Vol II" are in very different fonts.~As with all copies, page 96 in Vol II is mispaginated "56"; at the bottom of page 121 of the same volume, "opinion" and the signature mark "11" are here properly printed (indicating that this was one of the earlier copies in the print run, but meaning nothing as to which copies actually reached the public first).~This set is still, remarkably, in the publisher's original boards-and-label binding -- a fragile binding that was meant to be temporary, until the buyer arranged something more permanent (half-leather) with a bookbinder. The leaves in these particular volumes not only are uncut but are still unopened. Condition is very good-plus -- both volumes have a little wear at the spine ends, and Vol II has some string-indents in the edges of its front board. This condition is about as advantageous as is possible for this pair of volumes in original binding. Blanck 3832; Spiller & Blackburn 6.
