        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.

Printed note to foot of page 2: "Diese[!] unter L. v. Beethovens Nachlasse vollendet vorgefundene Capriccio ist im Manuscripte folgender Massen betitelt: Die Wuth über den verlornen Groschen, ausgetobt in einer Caprice."

Composed between 1795 and 1798, the capriccio was published only after Beethoven's death.

        [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, 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.

        Pennsylvania Folk Art Drawing of a Unicorn by Zachariah Reynolds, of Washington County, Pennsylvania, circa 1812-1814

      1828. The UnicornPen and ink and ink wash on paper, measuring 5 ½ x 4 3/8 inches, some toning, slight mat burn, the image is drawn on the back of a manuscript receipt, the receipt bears the signature of Benedict Reynolds, Zachariah's father.A very nice, calligraphic, folk art image of a unicorn and a bird perched atop a curious structure. A brief synopsis of the life of Zachariah Reynolds and his family history is here reprinted from the History of Washington County."D. L. REYNOLDS, who owns 160 acres of fine land, is situated in South Strabane Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania, four and one-half miles east of Washington, was born in the old house which then stood on the present site of the barn, on this farm, December 31, 1828. His father was Zachariah and his paternal grandfather was Benedict Reynolds, while his mother was Mary Little and his maternal grandfather was Moses Little.Benedict Reynolds was born in Maryland and from there he enlisted in the American Army. After serving for six months in the War of the Revolution, he reenlisted and took part in the battle of the Brandywine, and several others under the direct command of Gen. Washington, as well as in the battle of Cowpens. After the war he married Elizabeth Harmon and came to Washington County and settled in South Strabane Township. When he built his house he constructed it after the old Maryland plan, with the doors facing the east. He spent the rest of his life there, living to the age of ninety-seven years, and was buried in the cemetery on his own land.Zachariah Reynolds was born in South Strabane Township and when he reached manhood married Mary Little. Her father was born in Ireland and came to America when a young man. After he had earned $ 100 by farm work in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, he came to Washington County and invested it in 100 acres of land in South Strabane Township, which he later sold to the Munce family. He married Margaret Locke, also a native of Ireland, they had four children: John, Mary, David and Moses. To Zachariah and Mary (Little) Reynolds was born one son, D. L. The mother died when thirty years of age. Zachariah was subsequently married to Mary Huston, and they had three children: George, who lives in California; Mary, who is the wife of William Weir, residing on Morgan Avenue, Washington; and Seth H., who is a farmer in South Strabane Township.Zachariah Reynolds was a man of natural talent, and was better educated than many men of his day, being particularly gifted as a penman. He did quite a large part of the drawing for the charts of the internal organs for Dr. Leatherman, of Houstonville, Pa., and his pen work was admired all over the county. He served as clerk in the Pittsburg post office, and in the prothonotary's and treasurer's offices (1838-1841) at Washington. He lived into his seventy-ninth year. His burial was first by the side of his wife in the home cemetery, but later D. L. Reynolds had the bodies of his parents removed and interred anew in the Washington Cemetery. His second wife survived him and died when aged 84 years…" – History of Washington County, pp., 1289-1290Source: McFarland, Joseph F., 20th Century History of the City of Washington and Washington County, Pennsylvania and Representative Citizens

        The Insects in Council, debating upon the Question of War or Peace, with other Poems ?

      J. Hatchard and Son, Piccadilly; and A. Cockshaw, Leicester., London 1828 - First edition, very scarce. A fable in verse by the abolitionist, poet, translator-and creator of landscapes in feathers-Susanna Watts (1768-1842).Watts urges readers not to be misled by the diminutive size of her insect protagonists: 'The following little fable is not presented to the Public as a mere bagatelle of amusement suggested by the fashionable popularity of Entomology, but under a serious, anxious, and most sincere desire to inculcate respect and tenderness towards all the inferior creatures'. Indeed, animal cruelty was a particular bête noir of Watts, as was slavery, and she published widely on these topics, producing an anti-slavery periodical entitled The Humming Bird (twelve numbers, 1824-5). The Insects in Council encompasses both issues, as when Dragonfly implores his friend the Emmet: 'Come, free all your slaves, and deserve our / Applause, / And nobly unite in our patriot cause!'. After Watts' death, the discovery of her scrapbook revealed a remarkable breadth of interests, with entries of poems, mementoes, statistics, portraits (many of women writers), and data on Hindu and Arabic languages, as well as detailed diagrams of the hold of a slave ship. The extraordinary landscapes which she crafted from feathers won a medal from the Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures, and Commerce (ODNB). 12mo (180 x 111 mm), pp. xii, 72; edges lightly browned; publisher's pink printed boards; spine and upper cover sunned, loss of paper to lower part of spine, upper joint a little weak, faint water stain to lower board and rear endpapers.

        Costumes et Mœurs de Mexique. Une collection de Trente Tríos Planches.

      n.d. n.d., n.d. - "Mexican Costumes Bright and Attractive Contemporary Hand Colouring Texas Interest". 4to; title, 33 hand-colored lithographs of Mexican costume plates, including frontispiece, each with descriptive letterpress leaf; contemporary calf, expertly rebacked. First edition, English issue of a cornerstone for collectors of Mexican plate books (preceded by the Brussels issue published in 1828, which had 15 additional plates). This British edition is more rare in institutional holdings, as well as in commerce.FINE HAND COLORED MEXICAN PLATES. In the early 1820s Italian lithographer Linati (1790/1832) introduced lithography to Mexico, which revolutionized Mexican graphic arts. Linati based these lithographs on his original watercolors of Mexican costumes and pastimes which he made during his sojourn in Mexico (1825/1829). Linati’s charming images justifiably captured the imagination of everyone who saw them, becoming the basis of decades of artistic borrowing and adaptation. These outstanding lithographs are a rich ethnographic source on Mexican life and manners during the first decades of the nineteenth century, vividly illustrating indigenous peoples from every part of rural Mexico, sophisticated urban dwellers, men of the cloth, soldiers, Mexican heroes, trades people from all walks of life, etc. Included is a magnificent illustration of a bold Apache chief with numerous colorful tattoos on his chest and arms, carrying decorated shield and lance, galloping on horseback, with legend below: Cacique Apache des bords du Rio Colorado dans le Californie. Of Texas interest is the handsome full length portrait of Filisola, commander of the Eastern Provincias Internas and Santa Anna’s second in command on the Texas campaign (New Handbook II:997/98). Collectors of textiles, saddles, and other material culture of Mexico and the borderlands will find these images valuable for research. *Colas 1873. Hiler, Bibliography of Costume, p. 545.

        Resúmen Histórico de La Revolucion de Los Estados Unidos Mejicanos; sacado del "Cuadro Historico" que en forma de cartas escribió el Lic. D. Carlos María Bustamente, i ordenado en cuatro libros

      Lo Publica R. Ackermann, London 1828 - xxv, 423 pp. Illus. with 5 b/w plates. Pablo de Mendibil's synopsis of Carlos Maria Bustamante's 'Cuadro Historic de la Revolucion de Mexico' (1823), was an attempt to popularize the Mexican cause among Europeans since Bustamante's original work was exceeding scarce. Mendibil (1788-1832), an exile from Spain living in London, one of the 'afrancesados' who had emigrated to France in 1814, prepared this work at the urging of Mexican Independistas, including the publisher Rodolfo Ackermann, for whom he had previously written textbooks. Both the original by Bustamente and the shorter work by Mendibil, are hard to find and are rarely at auction. Palau 163362. Sabin 47810. Spain & Spanish America II: 73.

        Neue Testament unsers Herrn und Heilandes Jesu Christi

      1828 - BIBLE. NEW TESTAMENT. GERMAN. Das Neue Testament unsers Herrn und Heilandes Jesu Christi. Princeton: D. A. Borrenstein, 1828. 272, [1] p. Contemporary sheep, very skillfully rebacked in period style. A very nice copy. The first book in German type printed in New Jersey. Although the actual presswork was probably done in Princeton by David Borrenstein, who we know owned the type, the book was printed from stereotype plates made in Philadelphia by Jedidiah Howe. There is no other evidence of German type in use in New Jersey until the establishment of German newspapers in the early 1850s. It is interesting to speculate on Borrenstein's reasoning in printing a German-language book in New Jersey, which in 1828 had relatively few German-speaking residents. The book is very rare. In more than 40 years of specializing in New Jerseyana, in Princeton, this is only the second copy we have had for sale.

        Abbildungen Herzoglich-Braunschweigischer Gestüt-Pferde [.].

      Braunschweig, 1827-1828. - Oblong 1º (475 × 630 mm). 6 lithographed plates of horses, plus 1 additional lithographed view of the stud, all coloured by Pirscher himself with highlights in gum arabic. The first plate of the series with Pirscher's autograph signature and dated "1828". Unique set of Pirscher's famous series picturing the Duke's horses, coloured by Pirscher himself and obviously prepared for the owner of stud. The first horse depicted is Mirza, a "Silver grey national Arabian with red spots on his left shoulder, presented to the King of England by the Shah of Persia in 1819. As the Persian envoy assured the King, this was the noblest and most excellent Arabian ever to have stood in his master's stables". The other illustrations show mainly descendants of Mirza, who was transferred to the Ducal stables in 1821. The series was later expanded by another instalment to a total of 16 plates, with three of the seven plates redrawn and showing different backgrounds. Thieme/Becker lists the series as complete with 6 plates as present, as does Steinacker (cf. below). Apart from the present copy, neither the first series (as thus) nor the second, expanded edition is known in a coloured version. The use of body colours in this set underlines the fact that Pirscher's lithographs, issued in black and white only, were never intended for colouring, and that this set was eleborately redone and modified (with numerous details - such as the trees and bushes in Mirza's portrait - added by hand) by the artist himself to form a unique dedication copy for his sponsor. Karl Dietrich Pirscher (1791-1857) is one of the pioneers of lithography in Braunschweig. His horse plates are considered his best work and were praised as "probably the most splendid specimens of their kind created in the entire 19th century" (Steinacker). Provenance: 1. The Duke of Braunschweig's collection. 2. I. H. Anderhub library, dispersed by auction in 1963 (in which it constituted the second most expensive item, with an estimate of DM 2600). Slightly browned; some minor fraying to the extremities of the leaves and a few specks, otherwise in very good condition. Bibliotheca Hippologica I. H. Anderhub 238 (this set).

        MEMOIRS OF VIDOCQ, AS A CONVICT, SPY, AND AGENT OF THE FRENCH POLICE

      London: I. J. Chidley, 123, Aldersgate Street, n.d. [1840s].. 12mo, pp. [i-iii] iv-vi [i] ii-xii [1] 2-562, engraved title leaf and eight inserted plates with illustrations by Thomas Onwhyn, original pictorial red cloth, front and rear panels stamped in blind, spine panel stamped in gold, all edges untrimmed, yellow coated endpapers. First complete one-volume edition? No holdings for this edition can be found in any of the libraries of COPAC, leaving some uncertainty about its exact bibliographic status. What is known and what seems likely are as follows: the first English translation of this work was issued in four volumes by Hunt and Clarke in 1828-1829. (Oxford also records another edition in 4 volumes in 1829 from Whittaker, Treacher and Arnet.) A one-volume edition appeared in 1859 in the Bohn Library and also from T. B. Peterson in the U.S., the latter running to 562 pages, the same page count as the present edition and, one may reasonably suspect, of the Bohn Library edition as well. That would place this Chidley edition somewhere between 1829 and 1859 (confirmed by a gift inscription dated July 1847 on the front free endpaper). Chidley brought out an earlier undated edition (circa 1840) titled THE LIFE AND EXTRAORDINARY ADVENTURES OF VIDOCQ. This edition consisted of only 206 pages and, therefore, may have been the first of a projected multi-volume edition. What seems likely is that this is the first complete one-volume edition of VIDOCQ -- an important probable influence on Poe's creation of Dupin. See Queen's Quorum, pp. 8-9. Queen, The Detective Short Story, pp. 107-08. July 1847 gift inscription on the front free endpaper. Some foxing and age-darkening to plates, several hairline cracks along outer joints, but a very good copy with clean binding and bright spine stamping. A very uncommon edition of this book.

        Letter from the Secretary of War, Transmitting Copies of all the Letters and Correspondence between the Secretary of War and Gen. Andrew Jackson, from the Commencement of the Creek War, to 1st March 1815. Doc. No. 146, 20th Congress, House of Representatives, 1st Session

      Gales & Seaton, Washington DC 1828 - Complete with 22 pages. Minor wear; previously bound so the left edge has binding holes and is a little rough. This collection of correspondence between Andrew Jackson and Secretary of War John Armstrong was requested in 1828 by the Jacksonian majority in Congress to defend Jackson's conduct during the Creek War of 1813-1814. The presidential contest of 1828 between the incumbent John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson was without doubt the dirtiest election campaign in American history; it was filled personal attacks and allegations of adultery, corruption, murder, pimping, and bigamy. As the election approached, Adams' supporters began to once more raise questions about Jackson's mistreatment of the Creek Indians which had plagued him for years. Although only a small fraction of the Creek Nation had rebelled, Jackson's volunteer militia of 5,000 crushed the tribe, slaughtering over 800 men, imprisoning over 500 women and children and forcing the Creeks to cede over 23 million acres of their land (about 20% of Georgia and 60% of Alabama, where Jackson later established his personal Big Spring plantation). Although this correspondence paints his treatment of the Creeks in a relatively favorable light, two years later the Democratic majority in Congress passed the Indian Relocation Act which Jackson quickly signed forcing the Creeks, Cherokees, Seminoles, Chickasaw, and Choctaw tribes to abandon their homeland and march along the Trail of Tears to resettlement in Oklahoma.

      Bannatyne Club, Edinburgh 1828 - 117pp. Three quarters leather bound. Printed for the Bannatyne Club from a manuscript. The siege of the castle happened just after the "Glorious Revolution" of 1688, in which William of Orange took over the throne of England from James VII, whose supporter, the Duke of Gordon, held the castle and refused to hand it over to the "Protestant Conventionists". The Bannatyne Club was founded by Sir Walter Scott to print rare works of Scottish interest. The book is inscribed and signed by the Duke of Sutherland, saying that it was given to him by a fellow member of the Bannatyne Club, Sir David Dundas, in 1849. Light wear to covers, with small amounts of fraying to edges of boards. . [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

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

      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.
