        Report from the Secretary of the Treasury ... in relation to grants of land made to French emigrants, to encourage the cultivation of the vine and olive.

      Washington: Duff Green,, 1827. 20th Congress, 1st Session. Octavo (220 x 140 mm). Lacking the original wrappers, exposed stab-stitched binding, titles to title page in black. Library release stamps to pp. 9 and 33. Some loss to outer corner of title page, strong creases to top edge of pp. 25-32 and tear to p. 25, foxing and creasing throughout, pp. 51-52 slightly detached from binding and with a few nicks, a good copy. An important historical document regarding viticulture practices and the early wine industry in America. It concerns the progress of Alabama's Vine and Olive Colony, named thus after the land agreement made between the US Congress and refugee settlers in 1817 (some, but certainly not all, of whom were French). Attracted by the prospect of establishing a domestic winemaking industry to combat their reliance on imported European wines, Congress granted 92,000 acres of land to the settlers, with the proviso that the land be eventually used for cultivating grapes and olives. Efforts to grow them, however, were ultimately unsuccessful; the soil and weather conditions were unsuited to either crop, and the settlers were both inexperienced and plagued with disease. In 1827 a petition was made by the remaining refugees asking for the terms of the original agreement to be relaxed - thus prompting this congressional report. Frederick Ravesies, representing the community, argued that "Your Excellency is well aware how many years, nay centuries, Europe has required to obtain this experience and perfection. We can assert that, from our own experience, seven years is not sufficient to enable us to cultivate the vine successfully in an old country, and much more so in a wilderness" (p. 7). In the end, the majority of the settlement disbanded and the tracts were sold to land agents for other purposes. The report contains a progress review, a detailed log of the condition of each section of land, and a list of shareholder names.

Peipers, Architect.", rechts unten bezeichnet und datiert „Alla Passeggiata 1827 il 27, Marzo.". Doppelblatt aus einem Skizzenbuch von 1828. Möglicherweise ist der „Dächerblick" eine Vorzeichnung für Peipers lithographiertes Panorama „Rom gesehen von der öffentl. Promenade des Monte Pinsio". „[.] von seinen Reisen in Italien existieren ansehnliche Sammlungen von Zeichnungen und Aquarellen, namentlich aus Pompeji (im Besitz der Familie) [.]" (zit. aus: Weizsäcker-Dessoff: Kunst und Künstler in Frankfurt am Main im neunzehnten Jahrhundert, Frankfurt 1907, S. 107). Nach einem Studium von 1821-1825 am Polytechnikum in Karlsruhe ließ sich der als Architekt tätige Peipers in Frankfurt nieder. Studienreisen führten ihn nach Italien und Frankreich. Er leitete den Bau der Alten Börse in Frankfurt, nach Entwürfen A. Stülers (1800-1865). 1864-1865 und 1872-1873 war Peipers Vorsitzender der Frankfurter Künstlergesellschaft. Die 1849 während der französischen Belagerung zerstörte Villa Raffaels, auch Villa Olgiati oder Villa Nelli genannt, befand sich im Garten der Villa Borghese und war ein architektonisch recht anspruchsloses, ehemals von Raffael bewohntes und von ihm mit Fresken ausgeschmücktes Gebäude.

        SAGGIO DI GEOLOGIA FOSSILE

      1827. Tipografia del Seminario 1827 4° Pagine 1 cartab bianca + 348 + 1 carta bianca. Brossura editoriale a stampa in carta azzurrina. 7 tavole (su 8)incise in rame testo. Al frontespizio vignetta in rame con cartina del territorio Bellunese. Lievissime fioriture. Esemplare in barbe. Importante opera sulla geologia e sulla zoologia fossile del Veronese, del Feltrino e del Bellunese, contenente anche notevoli osservazioni sulla mineralogia delle zone suddette. L'autore fu tra i primi ad approfondire scientificamente la geologia e la paleontologia dell'Italia superiore. "Il lavoro che pone il C. in primo piano nella storia della geologia regionale, e al quale si riferirono anche nei decenni successivi gli studiosi dei terreni alpini, è la Zoologia fossile..., la prima opera in cui furono descritte esattamente la successione e la disposizione dei terreni secondari italiani, fino ad allora ignorati" (D.B.I., XXII p. 532). Innovativa soprattutto la metodologia applicata, basata sulla presenza dei fossili nei vari strati analizzati. Tommaso Catullo (1784 - 1869), celebre medico e naturalista bellunese, scrisse importanti memorie di mineralogia, chimica e idrologia, incentrate soprattutto sulla storia naturale delle province venete. Poggendorff, I 398; Bibl. Geol. e Paleont. Ital., n. 5194. Per i riferimenti al territorio bellunese cfr. Buzzati, Bibl. Bellunese, n. 873.

        Flora Australasica; or a selection of handsome and curious plants,natives of New Holland and the South Sea Islands.

      1827-28. 1827 - First edition. 56 hand-coloured engraved plates. Tall 8vo. Nineteenth century half purple morocco, gilt, some minor foxing. London, James Ridgeway, A very good copy of this handsome work. Sweet was a partner at the Stockwell Nursery and later worked at the nursery of Whitley, Brames, and Milne before being employed by Messrs Colvill. From 1818 he produced the five works that would ensure his posterity. Working under the influence of Joseph Banks, Sweet's book is distinguished in being the first to use live specimens, grown from seeds London nurseries. Each of the 56 plates are accompiend with 2pp of explanatory text. The plants are primarily from New South Wales, Kangaroo Island, Tasmania and King George's Sound. The specimens were drawn from collections at Kew Gardens, Sweet's former employer Whitley, Brames et al. Specimies were also compared with those at Josephine Bonaparte's collection at Malmaison. Robert Brown, naturalist on Matthew Flinders voyage, and later Joseph Banks's llibrarian, provided assistance. Despite Sweet's evident accomplishment, his career and health, were ruined by charges of stealing plants from Kew Gardens in 1826. Despite being acquitted of the charge, he left Colvills and devoted the next five years to producing botanical works, this being this first.

        Rare Autographed Letter Signed

      Glengarry, Scotland, 1827. unbound. 4 pages (front and back), each two-page spread measuring 7.25 x 8.75 inches, Glengarry, Scotland, March, 1827. Written at the height of his lunacy to the Highlander Society, in part: "...It has been six years since I published a legal proof which showed that Glengarry was the Chief of Clanronold; and that being the Senior House of the whole of Clan Donald...descended through Brighold, the eldest son from the Ancient Lords of the Isles, by the first marriage of his father; no descendent of 'Eain Muideortack,' the first Captain by commission could stand in competition with the Chief of that Clan..." With much insight into MacDonell having lost his seat at the Highland Society and the bitterness that remained between him and the organization. Also included is the original rare death notification mailed from the physician at hand to James Hamilton, Vice President, Highland Society, in full: "Col. Ranaldson MacDonell of Clanranald and Glengarry died at Fort Williams on Thursday this 17th Past," with proper postal markings and intact wax seal of Glengarry. Both items are in very good condition with natural folds and some wear; the letter has a 1.5-inch closed tear along one of the folds. Clan Chief of Clan MacDonell of Glengarry, and was also the personality well known to Walter Scott, a haughty and flamboyant man whose character and behavior gave Scott the model for the wild Highland clan chieftain Fergus Mac-Ivor in the pioneering historical novel Waverley of 1810. His erratic behavior included an incident whereby he pulled out a pistol at the Coronation of George IV. On January 17, 1828, acting very paranoid and delusional, he made an escape from a steamship, jumping from the ship, sustaining fatal injuries.
