        Album Amicorum

      Edinburgh, 1828. Album amicorum containing 11 drawings, three of which are in colour, and 36 pages of manuscript inscriptions. 8vo. Original condition, half calf over marbled boards, tooled spine, rose marbled endpapers. Significant wear to boards, otherwise very good condition, internally bright, a pleasing and entertaining volume. Uniquely from the female perspective in the early years of the Scottish emigration period, and nearing the end of the Industrial Revolution, these very personal jottings provide firsthand insight into culture, family, entertainment, politics, religion, and other matters either pressing or curious in nineteenth century Scotland, a time of transformation. Beautiful illustrations of Scottish scenes include elaborate formal costume, a sketch of the Water of Leith with a view of Cairns House and Cairns Castle in the distance, and the wild violet petunia. Speaking to interests abroad we find a vibrant coloured ink illustration of exotic birds, a charming nautical scene, and a sketch of the Roman temple ruins in the ancient Aramaic city of Palmyra in central Syria. Especially noteworthy is a lovely watercolour depiction of traditional Albanian costume as seen in southern Italy, titled in manuscript "Costume del Paese di Carafa, Provincia di Catanzaro Calabria Ultra, Nel Regno di Napoli." As well as some cleverly penned personal reflections, inscriptions include verses from William Shakespeare, Washington Irving, Sir Walter Raleigh, Lord Byron's Hebrew Melodies, Scottish poet James Thomson's "Castle of Indolence", and an interest chronology of Napoleon Bonaparte's career.The album amicorum, or book of friends, a precursor to modern-day autograph books, originated in German and Dutch linguistic regions (possibly originating in Wittenberg) in the middle of the sixteenth century. By the end of the century, they were common throughout Germany among students and scholars. Academics tended to retain the books for many years and gather the correspondence of fellow intellectuals with whom they associated; therefore the books began to function not only as sentimental artifacts, but also as a crude form of scholarly credentials, a form of the modern "list of references". In the 18th century they came into use among members of the burgeoning middle class. This new wave of autograph curators included women as well as men. Professors and fellow students made contributions to these albums, including inscriptions and illustrations, which were often by significant scholars or professional artists of the time. A typical volume began with a formal greeting to the album's owner or, in the case of English volumes, an address to its contributors, sometimes also including a heraldic shield or emblematic illustration by the signator. Contributions usually contained drawings, personal messages, and small pieces of verse. Inscriptions were often a few pages in length. Artistic autographers sketched full-page drawings, while less conventional entries included engravings or mementos such as embroidery, paper silhouettes, locks of hair, or pressed flowers. Water of Leith is the main river flowing through Edinburgh to the port of Leith where it flows into the sea via the Firth of Forth. . Very Good.

        Spy Unmasked or, Memoirs of Enoch Crosby, Alias Harvey Birch, the Hero of Mr. Cooper's Tale of Neutral Ground: Being an Authentic Account of the Secret Services Which He Rendered His Country during the Revolutionary War... [with] a copy reprinted by the Fishkill Weekly Times, 1886

      New York:: J. & J. Harper ,. 1828; 1886.. First edition. Hardcover. Good + condition. A first edition,1828, with the printers' sheets to the scarce 1886 reprint by the Fishkill Weekly Times. With a list of publications by O.A. Roorbach, Charleston, South Carolina, author of "Bibliotheca Americana : Catalogue of American Publications ... 1820-1861." The story of America's first double agent. Enoch Crosby (1750 - 1835), was an American soldier in the Continental Army and spy (recruited by John Jay) who posed as a British spy working for General Howe, working mostly in Westchester County New York, which at the time was "neutral ground" between the colonial forces further north and the British controlled New York City. On four separate occasions Crosby successfully infiltrated the British side, was captured, and escaped. It is thought that the character Harvey Birch in James Fenimore Cooper's 'The Spy', was based upon Crosby's life. Enoch Crosby's early years were spent in Putnam County, in the town of Southeast; the Enoch Crosby house (sometimes called Maple Hill Farm or Spy Hill Farm) still stands near the reservoir. 8vo, frontis portrait, xvi, [17]-206, ads [2], 4 pl., one map, uncut. Original quarter cloth and brown paper covered boards, paper label at spine. Previous owner name "Benjamin Matheson" contemporary with the issuance of the book at front board and at title page.

Roorbach was the author of "Bibliotheca Americana : Catalogue of American Publications ... 1820- 1861." Some light scattered foxing, bumped, and extremes rubbed, original spine laid down.

        The Crown Calendar for the Lincolnshire Lent Assizes, Holden at the Castle of Lincoln, in and for the County of Lincoln, on Saturday the Eighth Day of March, 1828, before the Right Honourable Sir William Alexander, Knight...Charles Winn, Esq. Sheriff

      Lincoln: J. W. Drury, 1828. Broadside measuring 370 x 240 mm., some foxing, small professional paper repair to lower blank margin (text unaffected) very good condition. A grim day at the courts. Calendar for the Lincoln assizes listing the names, age, origin and alleged crimes of some 37 men and women due to face trial. Although the sentences are not recorded, as this calendar was prepared in anticipation of the assizes in session for the 8 March 1828, many of those listed would have been transported to New South Wales or met their end at the gallows. The calendar makes sobering reading - in addition to the usual charges of larceny, deceit and housebreaking, it lists an unusually high proportion of violent crimes including robbery with assault and highway robbery, as well as 'carnal knowledge by force' (including one such grievous felony against a minor). We also learn of a most unusual case, that of one David Kemp, a farmers servant aged 24 years, here charged with having 'committed beastiality (sic) with a mare'.

        An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations

      Edinburgh: for Adam Black and William Tait; and Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, and Green, London,, 1828. With a Life of the Author, an Introductory Discourse, Notes, and Supplemental Dissertations by J. R. McCulloch. 4 volumes, octavo. Contemporary green half calf, comb-marbled boards, flat spines gilt-ruled in compartments, brown morocco labels, front and bottom edges untrimmed. Frontispiece, 2 plates, all with tissue guards. Boards lightly scuffed and very slightly bowed, small tear to bottom of front joint on volumes one and three, volume four partly unopened, two bookplates to front pastedown of each volume, offsetting from frontispiece and plates to adjacent pages and from bookplates to front free endpapers of volumes two to four. An excellent set. Based on the 1786 edition. "[T]he most well-known of the early nineteenth century English editions of Wealth of Nations because [John Ramsay] McCulloch was a distinguished political economist in his own right" (Tribe). In his Editorial Preface, McCulloch states that his own notes, of which the most important are collected in the final volume, are intended to "alert the reader to the fallacy of some principles advocated by Smith" while taking into consideration recent developments in academia and in legislation. The armorial bookplate does not belong to the noted Scottish physician Alexander Henderson, who lived in Edinburgh for a time, but rather a namesake who was employed as the Surveyor of Edinburgh Post Office. His inscription to the front free endpaper of volume one reads: "The Index to the [?] edition of this work (the same I presumed as that published in 1786 under A. Smith's own eye) contains 2103 references. A. H." The more modest bookplate above belongs to Robert Hoe, an American bibliophile who died in 1909 and to whom the copy would have passed at a later date. The front free endpaper has been spared offsetting from the bookplates by a loosely inserted issue of The Scots Times, which is dated February 23 1828 and contains a robust review of the present work.

        History of the War in the Peninsula

      London: John Murray; Thomas & William Boone,, 1828?-40. and in the South of France, from the year 1807 to the Year 1814 … 6 volumes, octavo (216 × 134 mm) Contemporary dark green half skiver, matching sand-grained cloth, title gilt direct to the spine, attractively panelled compartments, single gilt rule to spine and corner edges, edges and endpapers marbled. 55 engraved battle plans. A little rubbed at the extremities, front joint of the first volume just started at the head, light browning, some foxing to the plans as usual, overall an attractive and well-preserved set. The first volume, and last two are firsts, II-IV are seconds. The first volume was published by John Murray, who did not exercise his option on the next three having made a loss, Napier therefore published the rest of the history through Boone having raised the money by subscriptions. The work certainly divided opinion, "Soult considered it 'perfect', Sir Robert Peel 'eloquent and faithful', the Spanish general Alava felt it too pro-French, and a British officer in India demanded satisfaction on his return for a 'most unfounded calumny' about his conduct at Barossa" (ODNB) As a result most volumes are prefixed with "justificatory pieces" in answer to Napier's critics, his controversy with Beresford over Albuera was particularly rancourous. Perhaps judgement is best left to the acknowledged master chronicler of the conflict, Sir Charles Oman, who described Napier's work as "magnificent (if somewhat prejudiced and biased)".

        The Siege of Carlaverock in the XXVIII Edward I. A.D.MCCC; With the Arms of the Earls, Barons, and Knights, who were Present on the Occasion; with a Translation, a History of the Castle, and Memoirs of the Personages Commemorated by the Poet

      London: J. B. Nichols and Son. 1828. First Edition. Hardcover. Full calf rebacked and recornered with five raised bands on spine, gilt titles in second compartment and the other compartments with blind tooled decoration, boards with gilt fillet border and blind tooled decoration, aeg, marbled endpapers with bookplate on front pastedown, tissue guarded coloured frontis, title page printed in red and black, text illustrated with the arms of the nobles present at the siege and these nicely hand coloured, internally clean and bright. The poem "Siege of Carlaverock" is the only contemporary record of the seige of that castle in July 1300. This account is thought to have been written by the Fransiscan, Walter of Exeter and is noteworthy for several reasons. Perhaps firstly because it provides contemporary desciptions of the appearance and equipment of a late 13th century army and the manner in which they set about besieging a castle. It also contains the accurate blazon of over 100 peers of the realm, here reproduced in colour. The book presents a history of the castle itself, followed by the poem, the original text with the translation on the facing page, with the last section made up of short biographies of the worthies mentioned in the poem. Carlaverock castle is a triangular moated castle in south west Scotland. The siege of the castle in 1300 eventually ended, when having held up the might of the English army for some considerable time, the garrison of just sixty men finally surrendered. , Folio , xxxii + 380 pp .

      Baltimore. 1828.. Broadside, 13 1/2 x 10 inches. Old fold marks. Very good, untrimmed. Matted. A wonderful political broadside announcing the incoming results of the 1828 election, issued at Baltimore on Monday morning, Nov. 10, 1828, by a committee of Maryland Jacksonians headed by Roger B. Taney. There are four lines of interior headlines, in differing types, proclaiming "ALL HAIL NEW YORK," with letters indicating that Jackson has thirteen of its nineteen electoral votes; "ALL HAIL, MAINE," with news that Jackson is leading in the state; "WELL DONE, NEW-HAMPSHIRE," with returns showing Jackson in the lead there; and "ALL HAIL, OHIO," announcing that Jackson is ahead there by five thousand votes. A fine, eminently displayable political piece from one of the hardest-fought elections in U.S. history.
