        The Tasmanian. Volume II, number 56. March 21, 1828. Subscriber copy of P.A. Mulgrave.

      Hobart Town : Printed and published by John Campbell MacDougall, at the Tasmanian Office, Elizabeth Street, March 21 1828. Folio newspaper, [4] pp, upper margin of first page with subscriber's name 'P.A. Mulgrave, J.P.' inscribed in ink and 2d newspaper duty stamp in orange; old folds (some tearing along the fold lines); a fragile but complete copy. The first issue of George Howe's newspaper the Tasmanian was published in Hobart on March 3 1827. Within a few months John Campbell MacDougall, manager of the Tasmanian Brewery, had purchased the newspaperfrom Howe, and he became its editor and publisher-proprietor. The copy of the March 21 1828 issue we offer here is the subscriber copy of the significant early Van Diemen's Land colonist, the public servant Peter Archer Mulgrave. Mulgrave had arrived in Hobart Town in 1821 to take up the position of superintendent of schools in Van Diemen's Land. He later became a magistrate, coroner and superintendent of police at Port Dalrymple, and also acted as superintendent of schools at Launceston. During 1828, when he received this issue of the Tasmanian, Mulgrave was superintendent of police at Launceston. The following year Lieutenant-Governor Arthur would appoint him chief police magistrate of the colony. Atax on newspapers of 2d per sheet was introduced by Lieutenant-Governor Arthur on 20 October 1827. It remained in force for only two years, being discontinued on October 17 1829.

        Du système pénitentiaire en Europe et aux Etats-Unis ouvrage dédié aux Chambres, précédé d'une pétition qui leur est adressée, et orné de plusieurs plans de prisons et tableaux statistiques...

      Paris, Bossange, Ch. Béchet & T. Dehay, 1828-1830, 2 vol. in 8°, de CXV-337pp. 1f. & XV-448pp., ill. de 7 planches gravées se dépl., demi-basane verte époque pour le 1er vol. et en reliure pastiche identique pour le 2e vol., dos lisse à filets dorés, couv. cons. au 2e vol. Exemplaire de la Bibliothèque Chodron de Courcel, avec le nom "J.Chodron" frappé en queue. Edition originale rare avec le 2e volume paru 2 ans après. A la suite d'une série d'observations en Europe, Lucas publie un imposant ouvrage très documenté sur les différents systèmes pénitentiaires. En 1830 il est nommé par Guizot au poste d'inspecteur général des prisons poste qu'il occupera pendant 35 ans. Cette même année il publia séparément une "conclusion générale" de son ouvrage sous forme de pétition servant à défendre sa réforme devant les chambres (cf. avis de l'éditeur), elle n'est pas jointe ici. Il va consacrer sa carrière à trois grandes réformes: l'abolition de la peine de mort, la théorie de l'emprisonnement préventif, répressif et pénitentiaire, et enfin la civilisation de la guerre. Il militera toute sa vie pour le système américain dit d'Auburn (N.Y.) avec isolement nocturne et travail silencieux en commun le jour, s'opposant ainsi au système de Tocqueville prônant l'isolement total inspiré des Quakers. Il demandera aussi la suppression des bagnes métropolitains et leur remplacement par la réclusion dans des grandes maisons centrales, mais ne put empêcher la création de colonies pénitentiaires. Il est aussi à l'origine des colonies agricoles, comme celle de son ami Demetz à Mettray.

        A Brief Account of the Execution of the Six Militia Men!!

      1828. Philadelphia: Democratic Press, 1828. Philadelphia: Democratic Press, 1828. Anti-Jackson Broadside from the 1828 Presidential Race [Broadside]. [Jackson, Andrew (1767-1845)] [1828 Presidential Campaign]. A Brief Account of the Execution of the Six Militia Men!! [Philadelphia: Democratic Press, 1828]. 18-1/2" x 10 1/4" broadside with untrimmed edges, text in three columns below headline and woodcut image of six coffins. Moderate toning, light foxing and a few faint dampstains, three tiny scuffs with minor loss to text, mended on verso with archival tape. Item hinged to archival-quality cloth-covered illustration board. $3,750. * This is one of a series of broadsides attacking candidate Andrew Jackson for an incident that occurred during the War of 1812. In 1815 Jackson ordered the execution of six soldiers who tried to leave the service shortly before the conclusion of their three-month enlistment term. They were condemned as deserters and executed by firing squad in Nashville, Tennessee. Many thought execution was unfair, a classic case of a punishment that did not fit the crime. Jackson was running mainly on the strength of his war-hero resume, so broadsides such as this one were intended to undermine this reputation and to show him as a cruel individual. As we know, the strategy failed. Jackson defeated John Quincy Adams. This appears to be an unrecorded broadside. Shaw & Shoemaker records a later issue of this broadside, with the same title, entry 32473, but it is in four columns and has additional text dated 20 January 1828.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM GEORGE ORR TO "THE HONB. COL. COMMANDING AT NACOGDOCHES" [i.e. JOSÉ DE LAS PIEDRAS] ABOUT A "SMALL MEXICAN ARMED VESSEL" SURVEYING GALVESTON HARBOR.]

      Atascosita, Tx. Nov. 7, 1828. - [1]p. with integral address leaf, docketed by Orr. Mild edge wear, short edge tear, old folds, minor blank paper loss at wax seal openings. Overall very good. An interesting letter from George Orr to the commanding officer at Nacogdoches. At that time, José de las Piedras held that position, as the commander of the Mexican Twelfth Permanent Battalion at Nacogdoches, a post which he held from 1827 until 1832. George Orr first came to Texas in 1813 as a member of the Gutierrez- Magee Expedition, and returned in 1821 with his family, establishing a homestead at a site on the Old Atascosita Road just north of Trinity Bay and Galveston. Orr served as the alcalde, the local magistrate, in the Atascosita area for a time before the Texas Revolution. Here, Orr writes about a curious incident in the waters around Galveston Bay in the Fall of 1828: "We have but little knews [sic] to convey at present the most we have is that there is a small Mexican armed vessel now in our Bay taking soundings & surveying the harbour the crew consists of about 30 men carries one gun amid ship mostly American officers. We learn that the Capt. is now on a visit to see Col. Austin at St. Phillippy [San Felipe]. With much esteem Yr Obt. Sert. George Orr." Manuscript material from early American-Texan settlers emanating from before the Revolution is exceedingly rare in the marketplace, and we know of no other manuscript from Orr having been sold, period.

        Autograph Letter, Signed ("Walter Scott"), to Allan Cunningham

      Abbotsford, [Scotland] 1828 - 2 pp. pen and ink on bifolium with integral address leaf, red wax seal. 1 vols. 4to. Scott on Wordsworth. Scott writes to the poet Allan Cunningham, offering a strong opinion on the defects of Wordsworth's poetry: "Wordsworth fails in receiving the universal suffrage he merits because his poetry is too subtle and metaphysical in the idea & too blunt in the expression. He thinks like a profound philosopher often when he uses the language of common even vulgar life." This critique goes right to the heart of Wordsworth's poetic vision and the Romantic project as expressed in the Preface to Lyrical Ballads - "to choose incidents and situations from common life, and to relate or describe them, throughout, as far as was possible in a selection of language really used by men."Scott introduces the example of Wordsworth to contrast with Cunningham's own poetry, which Scott believes errs in the opposite direction, towards an overabundance of poetic language. He finds in it "a redundancy of fancy which outstrips the colder comprehension of most of your readers and which leads to an expenditure of ornament, which like too many rich trappings on a fine horse rather divert the attention from his genuine points of natural excellence." Scott belatedly concedes that authors should refrain from criticizing each other ("of a surety criticism is a thing to be eschewed betwixt two authors") and admits that it is only his own loss of poetic inspiration that has turned him to such criticism ("I am almost in the predicament Dryden speaks of when he says-the damnation of a poet is the generation of a critic").Cunningham (1784-1842) was a former stonemason's apprentice with a talent for imitating old Scottish airs. The inclusion of some of his originals in Robert Hartley Cromek's collection Remains of Nithsdale and Galloway Song led to a friendship with Scott. Grierson, ed. The Letters of Sir Walter Scott, XI, pp. 10-12 Creased from prior folding, small piece cut where opened at seal, not affecting text.

        Histoire naturelle des poissons

      Paris, F.G. Levrault [later: Pitois-Levrault; Pitois; P. Bertrand], 1828-1849. 22 volumes. 4to (25.4 x 21.0 cm). With 657 engraved plates, on 622 sheets, of which 587 beautifully hand-coloured and 70 plain. Later uniform navy buckram with gilt lettered spines.l The rare large paper issue of the most important iconography on fishes published in the 19th century, if not of all time. The work is usually found in 8vo with either plain or coloured plates. "Nearly all that was known about fishes during the first half of the nineteenth century was summarized by Georges Léopold Chrétien Frédéric Dagobert Cuvier (1769-1832), and his pupil and successor, Achille Valenciennes (1794-1865), in the monumental 'Histoire Naturelle des Poissons'. ... (It) contains descriptions of 4,514 nominal species, the greater portion, approximately two-thirds, written by Valenciennes after the death of Cuvier in 1832" (T. W. Pietsch). Nevertheless, Cuvier remained quoted as co-author. The preface of volume 9 contains Cuvier's eulogy by Valenciennes. "...To-day the work of Cuvier and Valenciennes is indispensable to systematic ichthyology ... In many parts of the world people assisted Cuvier with notes, manuscripts, and particularly specimens. For many years the Jardin des Plantes was the center where all ichthyological materials were deposited. Thus, Cuvier was able to bring together the richest and largest contemporary collection of fishes. Althogether, his vast communication network, huge world-wide collections, and extensive ichthyological library, made Paris the center of ichthyology and Cuvier the foremost ichthyologist in the world..." (T. W. Pietsch, in Archives of Natural History, volume 12). The number of species that are regarded as valid today, is immense. The plates are in the realm of the very best ever made; no ichthyological work equals the delicacy of colouring and precision of engraving. The plates of volumes 19 and 20 are not coloured; those in volume 6 are on smaller sheets, mounted to match; the smaller plate 245 is probably from another, octavo, copy. A complete collation is available upon request. Regarding text and plates this set is complete. This set is very reasonably priced as the text and plates are partly seriously affected by foxing. Generally, the text leaves are more affected than the plates; some sections and volumes are quite clean. Cat. BM(NH), p. 411; Dean I, p. 287; Nissen SFB, 46; Nissen ZBI, 1017.

        3 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift u. 2 eigenh. Gedichte.

      Zus. 9 S. (Briefe) u. 7 S. (Gedichte), 8. Bedini wurde als Spross der bekannten aus Ostra stammenden Bedini Familie geboren [...]. Als jüngster von sieben Söhnen, wurde Bedini für eine kirchliche Karriere bestimmt. Sein Vater meldete den Jungen im Priesterseminar von Senigallia an, wo Bedini am 20. Dezember 1828 die Priesterweihe empfing. In den folgenden Jahren war er Kanoniker an der Kathedrale von Senigallia. Dank einflussreicher Freunde, unter denen sich auch der gleichfalls aus Senigallia stammende Giovanni Maria Mastai Ferretti, der spätere Papst Pius IX., befand, wurde er 1838 in den diplomatischen Dienst der Kurie berufen. Hier wurde er zunächst als Sekretär von Lodovico Altieri, dem Erzbischof von Ephesos und Nuntius in Österreich tätig. 1845 wurde Altieri, der zwischenzeitlich einige Erfahrungen in der Diplomatie gesammelt hatte, nach Rom beordert. Dort wurde er am 21. April 1845 von Papst Gregor XVI. zum Kardinal berufen und mit dem Amt des Apostolischen Protonotars betraut. Damit war Bedinis Tätigkeit als Sekretär Altieris beendet. Seine erste selbstständige Mission führte Bedini von Oktober 1845 bis August 1847 nach Brasilien, wohin er als Internuntius entsandt wurde. Dort arbeitete er vornehmlich auf eine Verbesserung der Lebensbedingungen der deutschen Einwanderer hin. Bei dieser Gelegenheit versuchte er auch Protestanten für die katholische Kirche zu gewinnen. Zu gleicher Zeit wie Bedini hielt sich auch Giuseppe Garibaldi in Südamerika auf. Hieraus ergaben sich Kontakte, die in einem Brief Garibaldis an Bedini gipfelten, in dem Garibaldi bat, dem Papst mitzuteilen, dass sein Schwert und seine Italienische Legion jederzeit für das geliebte Heimatland und die Kirche zur Verfügung stünden, wie es die unsterbliche und ewig neue gemeinsame Religion einfordere. Er sei sich jedoch darüber im Klaren, dass der Thron Petri auf Fundamenten stehe, die nicht von Menschenhand erschüttert werden könnten. Bedini nahm den Brief dankend entgegen, doch wurde Garibaldis Offerte in Rom nicht angenommen. Als Bedini 1848 nach Rom zurückkehrte wurde er Assistent des Kardinals Giacomo Antonelli, der zu dieser Zeit die Stellung eines Außenministers des Kirchenstaats innehatte. Von März bis November 1848 folgte Bedini dem Papst im Gefolge der Revolution von 1848 ins Exil nach Gaeta. In dieser Zeit vermochte Garibaldi, den Widerwillen der Römer gegen Napoléon III., dessen Truppen dem Papst zu Hilfe kamen, auszunutzen und unterstützte das Triumvirat aus Giuseppe Mazzini, Aurelio Saffi und Carlo Armellini, welches der kurzlebigen römischen Republik vorstand. In der Folge der Rückkehr des Papstes nach Rom war Bedini von 1849 bis 1852 wieder als päpstlicher Nuntius tätig. In dieser Zeit wurde er als Legat und Botschafter nach Bologna entsandt. Gerade zu Beginn seiner Arbeit in Bologna wurde der von den Österreichern bei Comacchio gefangen genommene italienische Patriot Ugo Bassi in die Stadt gebracht und dort schließlich am 8. August 1849 erschossen. Viele Anhänger der italienischen Patrioten warfen Baldini vor, dass er nichts unternommen habe, um Bassi zu retten. Dabei ließen sie wohl außer acht, dass Bedini ohnehin nur äußerst wenig Einfluss auf die Entscheidungen der Österreicher hätte ausüben können. Am 15. März 1852 wurde Bedini zum Titularerzbischof von Thebae ernannt. Drei Tage später erhielt er von Kardinal Luigi Lambruschini den Auftrag, sich als päpstlicher Nuntius nach Brasilien zu begeben. Die Einreise nach Brasilien bleib ihm jedoch wegen einer dort gerade wütenden Pestepidemie verwehrt, so dass er sich statt dessen in die Vereinigten Staaten begab und so der erste päpstliche Nuntius in den USA wurde. Während seines gesamten Aufenthaltes in den USA wurde Bedini von italienischen Patrioten unter der Führung des ehemaligen Priesters Alessandro Gavazzi wegen seiner angeblichen Beteiligung an der Hinrichtung Bassis verfolgt. Es wurden sogar gegen Bedini gerichtete Proteste auf öffentlichen Plätzen organisiert. Nach einem gewalttätigen Protestakt in Cincinnati verhaftete man indes die Rädelsführer und wies sie aus den USA aus. Die restliche Zeit in den USA konnte Bedini sodann in relativer Ruhe verbringen. 1856 wurde er bei seiner Rückkehr nach Italien zum Generalsekretär der Kongregation für die Evangelisierung der Völker ernannt und im März 1861 zum Bischof von Viterbo und Toscanella geweiht. Bei seinem Einzug in Viterbo am 8. Mai 1861 wurde er von der Bevölkerung und vom Klerus herzlich begrüßt und durch die festlich illuminierten Straßen der Stadt zur Kathedrale geleitet. Am 27. September 1861 wurde Bedini zum Kardinalbischof von Santa Maria sopra Minerva geweiht. Bedini verstarb plötzlich und unerwartet am Morgen des 6. September 1864 im Alter von 59 Jahren, als er vermutlich einen Schlaganfall erlitt. In der Stadt Viterbo herrschte ob der Todesnachricht große Trauer. Obwohl sich viele Gäste in der Stadt befanden, die an einem Fest zu Ehren der Heiligen Rosa teilnehmen wollten, wurde dieses Fest abgesagt. Bedini wurde in der Kathedrale von Viterbo in einem Marmorgrabmal in der Nähe der heiligen Rosa und seines Vorgängers bestattet (Wikipedia). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -

This pioneer work on the pathological anatomy of infants includes interesting observations on cerebral congestion, intestinal disturbances, the pulse, teething, etc. It includes the first classification of infantile diseases of any importance." (Garrison-Morton). "Billard was a prominent gynecologist at the time he wrote this pioneering work on pediatric pathology. Correlating his clinical observations with hundreds of autopsies on infants and children, he shed much needed light on an array of childhood illnesses, some of which had been thought to occur only in adults. Supplementing the text, which contains illustrative case histories, is a remarkable atlas containing ten colored plates showing various pathological conditions, including peptic ulcer, cerebral hernia, thrush, etc. (Heirs of Hippocrates 1615).

        Histoire naturelle des poissons.

      - Paris, F.G. Levrault [later: Pitois-Levrault; Pitois; P. Bertrand], 1828-1849. 22 volumes. 4to (25.4 x 21.0 cm). With 657 engraved plates, on 622 sheets, of which 587 beautifully hand-coloured and 70 plain. Later uniform navy buckram with gilt lettered spines.l The rare large paper issue of the most important iconography on fishes published in the 19th century, if not of all time. The work is usually found in 8vo with either plain or coloured plates. "Nearly all that was known about fishes during the first half of the nineteenth century was summarized by Georges Léopold Chrétien Frédéric Dagobert Cuvier (1769-1832), and his pupil and successor, Achille Valenciennes (1794-1865), in the monumental 'Histoire Naturelle des Poissons'. . (It) contains descriptions of 4,514 nominal species, the greater portion, approximately two-thirds, written by Valenciennes after the death of Cuvier in 1832" (T. W. Pietsch). Nevertheless, Cuvier remained quoted as co-author. The preface of volume 9 contains Cuvier's eulogy by Valenciennes. ".To-day the work of Cuvier and Valenciennes is indispensable to systematic ichthyology . In many parts of the world people assisted Cuvier with notes, manuscripts, and particularly specimens. For many years the Jardin des Plantes was the center where all ichthyological materials were deposited. Thus, Cuvier was able to bring together the richest and largest contemporary collection of fishes. Althogether, his vast communication network, huge world-wide collections, and extensive ichthyological library, made Paris the center of ichthyology and Cuvier the foremost ichthyologist in the world." (T. W. Pietsch, in Archives of Natural History, volume 12). The number of species that are regarded as valid today, is immense. The plates are in the realm of the very best ever made; no ichthyological work equals the delicacy of colouring and precision of engraving. The plates of volumes 19 and 20 are not coloured; those in volume 6 are on smaller sheets, mounted to match; the smaller plate 245 is probably from another, octavo, copy. A complete collation is available upon request. Regarding text and plates this set is complete. This set is very reasonably priced as the text and plates are partly seriously affected by foxing. Generally, the text leaves are more affected than the plates; some sections and volumes are quite clean. Cat. BM(NH), p. 411; Dean I, p. 287; Nissen SFB, 46; Nissen ZBI, 1017.

Spine labels are probably original, as the period black and red style and serif font choice indicate. This is ironic error or binder's prerogative with labels possibly transposed, based on relative thickness of the two volumes.

Durand, after S.F.B. Morse. Volume II, Additions and Corrections leaf bound-in at rear. Initially published in an edition of only 2500, this is the very first full & comprehensive American dictionary. Some minimal restoration work (front board reattached) by a conservator. Book shows some leather flaking to bottom edge. Full calf, double-ruled in gilt, with contrasting spine labels, one black (Volume #, one red (Title), each bordered with gilt chained motif. FIRST EDITION of the dictionary "which almost at once became, and has remained, the standard English dictionary in the United States" (PMM) and has also been described as the "most ambitious publication ever undertaken, up to that time, upon American soil" (Grolier). This dictionary offered a more extensive lexicon than any previous dictionary ("Webster's great dictionary, all 70,000 entries of which he wrote with his own hand... marked a definite advance in modern lexicography, as it included many non-literary terms and paid great attention to the language actually spoken...

        Autograph Letter, Signed, to Joseph Story. 1 page, 4to. 26 Oct 1828

      1828. The Supreme Court Reporter Writes to Justice Story Peters, Richard [1740-1848]. [Story, Joseph (1779-1845)]. [Autograph Letter, Signed, to Story, Philadelphia, October, 26 1828]. Single leaf folded to form 10" x 8" quarto bifolium, written in ink, addressed, franked and postmarked on verso of fourth page, which has a wax seal. Fold lines, some toning along margins, otherwise fine. $500. * Peters, a Philadelphia lawyer and county official, was the reporter of the U.S. Supreme Court from 1828 to 1843. (His volumes are reported today as 26-41 U.S.). This letter refers to the delayed commissioning of Joseph Hopkinson [1770-1842], son of founding father Francis Hopkinson, as a judge on the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, a post held previously by Peter's father. President Adams issued Hopkinson's recess appointment to the District Court on 23 October 1828. He was confirmed by the Senate and formally commissioned in February 1829. According to Peters: "It has been long, very long, withheld, and Mr Adams has suffered much from the delay -- I do not know how he can justify it -- The public interests suffered, and this he knew -- He seems to have forgotten the maxim 'Bis dat qui' &c [Bis dat qui cito dat- he gives twice who gives promptly]. It was a wise appointment. Joseph Hopkinson's distinguished legal career included his successful defense of Supreme Court Associate Justice Samuel Chase during his impeachment trial (1804-05). (Hopkinson also wrote the lyrics to the patriotic anthem "Hail, Columbia.") Peters also thanks Story for sending him a copy of an address, most likely A Discourse at the Request of the Essex Historical Society, September 18th, 1828, in Commemoration of the First Settlement of Salem, Massachusetts, and says he was "exceedingly gratified and instructed by its perusal."

        TRAVELS THROUGH NORTH AMERICA, DURING THE YEARS 1825 AND 1826. BY HIS HIGHNESS, BERNHARD, DUKE OF SAXE-WEIMAR EISENACH

      Carey, Lea & Carey, Philadelphia 1828 - Two volumes, bound in one [as issued]. Small 4to [22.5 by 14.5 cm], later black half morocco; spine with four raised bands, ruled and lettered in gilt; decorative endpapers. (4), iv, (9)-212; 238, (4) pages. Internal foxing, as generally seen; marginal staining. Very good. The English translation of a highly detailed and enthusiastic account of a visit to the United States by Duke (Prinz und Herzog) Karl Bernhard of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach (1792-1862), who in the years 1825 and 1826 traveled through the southern, midwestern and northeastern United States and in parts of Canada. Among other things, it contains Duke Bernhard's account of his visit to the United States Mint, which is undescribed in the numismatic literature. Bernhard appears to have had some numismatic interest, and is a keen observer. On his visit to the Mint, he witnesses the production of half dollars, including the cutting of the planchets and the actual striking of the coins. He notes that no silver dollars had been struck since 1803. The medals produced by the Mint are of considerable interest to him, and he praises in particular the Naval medals of the War of 1812 period and specifically the 1815-dated medal struck in gold for Andrew Jackson for the Battle of New Orleans. (Bernhard was a military man admired for commanding the 2nd Brigade of the 2nd Dutch Division of the Duke of Wellington's forces at the Battle of Quatre Bras in the lead-up to Waterloo.) He admires as well the agricultural medals struck by the Mint and laments that the Mint's own collection does not include examples of the earlier American medals. No stranger to politics, he records that while the Mint is poorly equipped and insufficiently housed, the personnel fear requesting adequate funding from Congress for fear of losing the establishment altogether. While his record of this visit takes up only pages 179-180 of the second volume, it is quite interesting. Elsewhere, Bernhard describes the medal collection at the Boston Athenaeum and notes a collection of coins at the Western Museum in Cincinnati. Careful reading reveals a number of numismatic references throughout the text, many of them pertaining to medals, but encompassing also the circulating coinage and even bank notes. The author visits Thomas Jefferson at Monticello and spends two months enjoying New Orleans. This first English edition was published the same year as the original appeared in German. Clark III: 14. Graff 279. Howes B385. Sabin 4953. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
