        The only extant fair copy of Alexander Hamilton's most historic 1792 letter to George Washington accusing Thomas Jefferson of subverting the administration: " ?I know that I have been an object of uniform opposition from Mr. Jefferson, from the first moment of his coming to the City of New York?" while insisting that he defended Jefferson when "?the Vice-President, by his indiscreet and light letter to the Printer, transmitting Paine's pamphlet?" The letter is beautifully and painstakingly reproduced and signed by Hamilton's son a mere 3 years after Jefferson's death

      [Mount Vernon?], December 22, 1829. 8" x 9.75". "Fair Copy of an Autograph Letter Signed, ""A Hamilton,"" in the hand of his son, James Alexander Hamilton (1788-1878), 5 pages, 8"" x 9.75"", Philadelphia, September 9, 1792 to George Washington, docketed on verso as ""A true copy compared with the original Decr. 22d 1829 JAH."" Pages stitched together at the top left, expected folds with a few minor partial separations, final page toned, else very good. An early transcription of one of the most important letters written by Alexander Hamilton, likely undertaken at Mount Vernon where the majority of Washington's papers remained before Congress voted to acquire them (a process that commenced in 1834 and finally completed in 1849). Hamilton's transcription of his father's letter to Washington reads, in most part: ""...The feelings and views which are manifested in that letter are such as I expected would exist - And I most sincerely regret the causes of the uneasy sensations you experience. It is my most anxious wish, as far as may depend on me, to smooth the path of your administration, and to render it prosperous & happy. And if any prospect shall open of healing or terminating the differences which exist, I shall most chearfully [sic] embrace it; though I consider myself as the deeply injured party. The recommendation of such a spirit is worthy of moderation and wisdom which dictated it; and if your endeavours should prove unsuccessful, I do not hesitate to say that in my opinion the period is not remote when the public good will require substitutes for the differing members of your administration. The continuance of a division there must destroy the energy of Government, which will be little enough with the strictest Union?" on my part there will be a most chearful acquiescence in such a result. ""I trust, Sir, that the greatest frankness has always marked and will always mark every step of my conduct towards you. In this disposition, I cannot conceal from you that I have had some instrumentality of late in the retaliations which have fallen upon certain public characters and that I find myself placed in a situation not to be able to recede for the present. ""I considered my self as compelled to this conduct by reasons public as well as personal of the most cogent nature... I know that I have been an object of uniform opposition from Mr. Jefferson, from the first moment of his coming to the City of New York to enter upon his present office -- I know, from the most authentic sources, that I have been the frequent subject of the most unkind whispers & insinuations from the same quarter ?" I have long seen a formed party in the Legislature, under his auspices, bent upon my subversion ?" I cannot doubt, from the evidence I possess, that the National Gazette was instituted by him for political purposes and that one lading object of it has been to render me and all the measures connected with my Department as odious as possible?" ""Nevertheless I can truly say, that, except explanations to confidential friends, I never directly or indirectly retaliated or countenanced retaliation till very lately- I can even assure you, that I was instrumental in preventing a very severe and systematic attack on Mr. Jefferson, by an association of two or three individuals in consequence of the persecution, which he brought upon the Vice-President, by his indiscreet and light letter to the Printer, transmitting Paine's pamphlet. ""As long as I saw no danger to the Government, from the machinations which were going on, I resolved to be a silent sufferer of the injuries which were done me... I determined to avoid giving occasion to any thing which could manifest to the world dissentions among the principal characters of the government; a thing which can never happen without weakening its hands, and in some degree throwing a stigma upon it[.] ""But when I no longer doubted, that there was a formal party deliberately bent upon the subversion of measures, which in its consequences would subvert the Government when I see that the undoing of the funding system in particular (which whatever may be the original merits of that system, would prostrate the credit and the honor of the Nation, and bring the Government into contempt with that description of Men, who are in every society the only firm supporters of Government) was an avowed object of the party; and that all possible pains were taken to produce that effect by rendering it odious to the body of the people ?" I considered it as a duty, to endeavor to resist the torrent and as an essential mean[s] to this end to draw aside the veil from the principal Actors. To this strong impulse, to this decided conviction, I have yielded ?" And I think events will prove that I have judged rightly --- ""Nevertheless I pledge my honor to you, Sir, that if you shall hereafter form a plan to reunite the members of your administration, upon some steady principle of cooperation, I will faithfully concur in executing it during my continuance in office. And I will not directly or indirectly say or do a thing, that shall endanger a feud- ""I have had it very much at heart to make an excursion to Mount Vernon, by way of the Federal City in the course of this Month - and have been more than once on the point of asking your permission for it But I now despair of being able to effect it. I am nevertheless equally obliged by your kind invitation. ""The subject mentioned in the Postscript of your letter shall with great pleasure be carefully attended to -- With the most faithful and affectionate attachment I have the honor to remain."" ""P.S. I had written you two letters on public business, one of which will go with this; but the other will be withheld, in consequence of a slight indisposition of the Attorney General, to be sent by express sometime in the course of tomorrow?""" On the docket, John A. Hamilton takes pains to copy Washington's own docket: ""From Alexr Hamilton Esq 9th Septr. 1792 Private"" and matches exactly (in terms of line structure and abbreviations) the original letter from his father that is today housed at The Library of Congress. Below his rendering of Washington's docket, he writes: ""endorsed as above in Washington[']s Hand writing A true copy compared with the original Decr 22d 1829"" Hamilton also takes pains to copy his father's address that appeared opposite Washington's docket: ""Private President of the United States. Mount Vernon."" Exactly why Hamilton chose to copy this letter is not known. It does not appear in his memoirs, published in 1867, where he took pains to burnish his father's reputation (and besmirch that of Jefferson). However the letter did find its way into volume four his brother John C. Hamilton's multivolume set, Hamilton's Works, published in 1851 (pp. 303-305). The letter was again published in John C. Hamilton's biography of his father, Life of Alexander Hamilton in 1879. (Vol. V., pp. 71-73)."

No other book about German mercenary in the service of Pedro I is as well written as this. It is a first class study of the period despite the fact that it is highly critical. The dictum 'Huma vez e nunca mais' (Once and never again) sets the tone of the book. It is now difficult to find." - Etwas berieben. Tls. stärker gebräunt. SS. 111/112 mit Papierverlust am Rand.

        An autograph letter signed to 'My dear King' (the Reverend Arthur Septimus King, son of Captain Phillip Parker King); two pages, small octavo, dated 9 July 1846, regarding assistance with finding him a curacy

      - 'I can . write to the Bishop of Norwich, who has a great respect for your Father, to ask his advice about it, and I am sure he will do all he can for you, consistently with his rules of duty.' Rear-Admiral Sir William Edward Parry, Arctic explorer, spent the years 1829-34 in Australia as Commissioner of the Australian Agricultural Company, the role Captain King took over 'for ten eventful years' from 8 April 1834 (Dictionary of National Biography, and the Australian Dictionary of Biography). This serves to establish a connection between the parties (as if the hydrographical one wasn't enough). As for the rest, the 'career of Parry as an arctic explorer is to be best studied in his own Journals; his Life, written by his son Edward in 1857, which ran through many editions, dwells, with a natural bias, on the religious side of his character, which was strongly marked' (DNB). Accordingly, we won't go on about the glories of the polar days, but rest content in the knowledge that this item reflects a part of the whole .

From the library of Moncure Biddle of Philadelphia, Pa., with his armorial bookplate on inside of clamshell case.This rare suite of plates, which is unsigned (attributed to Seymour by Abbey), is a satiric 'poke' at the upper eschelons of society and their attempts to improve the quality of their lives by gaming, art, travel and romance.The third plate contains an amusing sketch "Aerostation" which depicts early nineteenth century BallooningThe plates: 1. ?"Frolic & Fashion,?" 2. ?"Rural Retirement,?" 3. ?"Arts & Sciences,?" 4. ?"Travelling. Pl. 1,?" 5. ?"Travelling,?" 6. ?"Courtship.?" We have previously had one copy of Search after the ?"Comfortable?" in the original wrappers. The uncut size of that example was 11 3/8 x 16 3/4 inches; 288 x 425 mm. The plates in the present copy measure 10 7/8 x 16 5/8 inches; 276 x 423 mm. Robert Seymour (1798?-1836) was a popular and prolific illustrator and satirical cartoonist specializing in sporting subjects, before Dickens burst upon the London scene in 1834. "Influenced by the work of caricaturist George Cruikshank (1792-1878), Seymour gave up a career as a draftsman to devote himself to illustration, beginning under the pseudonym ?'Short Shanks.?' By 1830, his political caricatures were widely circulated through the satirical journals Figaro in London and The Looking-Glass, or McLean?'s Monthly. Highly strung and extremely sensitive about his status as an artist, Seymour was emotionally and mentally unstable, having suffered a nervous breakdown in 1830. His first Dickens illustration accompanied an extract from the early sketch ?'The Bloomsbury Christening?' in Seymour?'s Comic Album (1834). For the early short story ?'The Tuggses at Ramsgate?' Seymour provided two plates for Chapman and Hall?'s Library of Fiction (April, 1836). In 1835, Edward Chapman (1824-1880) and William Hall (1801?-1847) published a series of Seymour cartoons in the Squib Annual of Poetry, Politics, and Personalities with great success. With Seymour?'s sporting illustrations in mind, the partners now approached the up-and-coming young writer Charles Dickens to provide a series of ?'sketches?' to accompany a series of comic plates by Seymour. The offer of £14 3s. 6d. per month to write ?'The Adventures of the Nimrod Club?' was made to Dickens by Hall in person on 10 February, 1836, just two days after Sketches by Boz was published…However, the young writer countered that his stories should be the focus of the project and that Seymour?'s two plates should complement the monthly, serialised text. The first monthly part, in what would become the green wrapper familiar to so many Victorian households, went on sale on 31 March 1836 at the price of one shilling. According to Dickens's conception, Pickwick was a fat, jolly middle-class Londoner reminiscent of Shakespeare?'s Falstaff, and not the thin rake of Seymour?'s initial drawing…On 20 April 1836, having seen his project for a monthly series of plates involving the comic misadventures of a club Cockney sportsmen overtaken by young Charles Dickens?'s ?'commentary,?' Seymour returned home to begin a fresh design according to the young writer?'s instructions; them [sic], humiliated and frustrated, he rushed into the summer-house in his Islington garden, set up his gun with a string on its trigger, and shot himself in the head. Thus, only the first two parts of The Pickwick Papers were illustrated by Seymour, who had completed only one of the two plates for Part Two, and a total of seven plates for the series?" (Philip V. Allingham, ?"Robert Seymour (d. 1836), A Biographical Sketch?" at http://www.victorianweb.org/art/illustration/seymour/pva213.html).?"Despite the enormous output of Seymour, very little of his work was coloured, his illustrations being mostly woodcuts or etchings. It will be remembered that Seymour originated the idea of a series of Cockney sporting sketches to be published in monthly parts. The idea was taken up by Chapman and Hall, who engaged Dickens to write the letterpress. From this grew the famous Pickwick Papers?"

After being dismissed from military service in 1826, accused of using a weapon in a row, he made a living giving private lessons in fencing, gymnastics and swimming.

        AMERICAN ORNITHOLOGY; OR THE NATURAL HISTORY OF THE BIRDS OF THE UNITED STATES. ILLUSTRATED WITH PLATES ENGRAVED AND COLOURED FROM ORIGINAL DRAWINGS TAKEN FROM NATURE.

      New York & Philadelphia: Collins & Co. and Harrison Hall, 1828-1829. - Three quarto text volumes plus folio atlas volume. Text: cxcix,[1],230,[1]; 456 [without a leaf number vii-viii, as usual]; vi,396pp., 4pp. subscribers list at rear of third volume. Atlas: Seventy- six handcolored engraved plates, some heightened with gum arabic, by A. Lawson (52), J.G. Warnicke (21), G. Murray (2), and B. Tanner (1), all after Wilson. Expertly bound to style in half red straight-grained morocco and period near-uniform marbled boards, spines gilt. [Placeholder only] The second full edition of Wilson's work, with plates in their most desirable form. This is the most important work on American ornithology before Audubon. "Science would lose little if every scrap of pre-Wilsonian writing about United States birds could be annihilated" - Coues. The first edition of Wilson's life-work was published in nine volumes between 1808 and 1814. The present edition was prepared by Wilson's friend and colleague, George Ord, who improved the work textually by re-arranging the work in a systematic order by species and by contributing an important "Sketch of the Author's Life" (pp.vii-cxcix in the first text volume) as well as numerous additional textual notes. He also notes in his preface to the first text volume that he arranged for the plates to be "carefully examined and retouched" by Alexander Lawson (the original engraver of most of the plates). Reading between the lines of Ord's preface, it is clear that he believed the plates in the present edition to be better than the first, and this is the current general view: it is noted in FINE BIRD BOOKS that "the plates [are] coloured better," and Wood writes: "The hand- colored drawings in the atlas are from the original copper plates, colored anew by pigments which seem to have been better quality than those used by Wilson. In the copy under notice, the colors are very fresh: those of the original are faded and in some cases quite disintegrated." In addition to the coloring, better quality paper was used in this edition, thus avoiding the foxing which almost inevitably mars the first. Thus, this edition is more desirable than the first.

Andrade on the front pastedown of each volume. 19th-century quarter red morocco with red textured cloth sides.

A complete, handsome and handleable set, recently refurbished professionally from spine-panels to corner-tips, externally restored joints and all hinges strengthened with archival repair tissue. Textblocks exhibit severe foxing and damp-staining to all but the first volume (also touched, but not severely), fortunately without undue swelling to textblocks. The facsimiles were inserted with mild clumsiness, one is misfolded and overlaps, with short tears. On the plus side, the brief terminal errata list demonstrates that the set is complete; there is only one ownership mark, a nice old signature at the head of IV titlepage; the textblocks are quite sound and free of any markings; spine gilt remains reasonably bright and entirely legible; the leather is well-tanned, not decomposing, and restorations appear entirely successful.

Das Werk ist eine vortreffliche Leistung, ebenso ausgezeichnet durch die Vollständigkeit des in ihm gesammelten Materials, wie durch verständige Kritik und übersichtliche Anordnung? (ADB XII, p. 532). - Hoeck (1794-1877) war Althistoriker und Universitätsbibliothekar in Göttingen. In der Vorrede von 1823 klingt Faszination besonders für die Frühgeschichte der Insel an: ?Kretas Geschichte beginnt in so ferner Zeit, seine Glanzperiode gehört so hohem Alter an, dass es bereits schon sank, als das übrige Hellas erst aufblühte . wagte man auch nicht über die Urbevölkerung Kretas zu entscheiden, so stand es doch fast wie ein Wunderland grauer Ferne da, und galt vorzüglich in religiöser Hinsicht als Haupt- und Urquelle von Hellas? Ein wesentlicher Abschnitt des ersten Bandes untersucht die am kretischen Ida heimischen Dämonen, die als Entdecker und erste Bearbeiter von Kupfer und Eisen gelten: ?Idäische Daktylen und die Anfänge der Metallurgie? - Ekkekaki, Ta Kretika Biblia I, 1991, no. 413; nicht bei Blackmer. - Auf feinem Papier, vereinzelt stockfleckig, Band III etwas stärker. Frisches, elegant gebundenes Exemplar. Glatte Halblederbände d. Zt. mit Rückenvergoldung, die Deckel mit Achatmarmorpapier in Gelb- und Grautönen bezogen, marmorierter Schnitt.

        Novum testamentum polyglottum Bagsterianum

      Londini: Samuelis Bagster 4to (29 cm, 11.4"). 75, [3] pp., 188 cols. in 4, 22 cols., 188 cols. in 4, [8] pp., 568 cols.. 1829 First edition of Bagster's impressive New Testament, "the most inclusive since the London Polyglot" according to Darlow and Moule. This hefty volume offers the text in Greek, Latin, Portuguese, and English on facing pages, followed by French, Italian, Spanish and German likewise, and then by Syriac in a separate section printed from right to left. This was the => first published portion of the Biblia Polyglotta, Bagster's great accomplishment, published from 1829 through 1831; the Hebrew text here is W. Greenfield's, the Greek is the Textus Receptus, the Latin is the Sixtine?-Clementine, the English is the King James, the German (printed in blackletter) is Luther's, the French is Ostervald's, the Italian is Diodati's, the Spanish is Scio's, and the Syriac N.T. is from the Vienne, 1555 edition. Samuel Lee wrote the Prolegomena, which in this particular example are bound in after the (incorrectly placed) first eight pages of the French/Italian/Spanish/German section. Bagster first attempted to publish a part of his massive feat in 1822, but virtually all of that edition (in four languages only) was destroyed in a warehouse fire. Publisher's dark green ribbed cloth, covers framed in blind with large, elegant blind-stamped floriate devices in the corners; spine with gilt-stamped title and list of languages, this rebacked preserving the majority of the original spine and lettering, corners refurbished. Lower page edges (closed), title-page, and final page each with an old institutional rubber-stamp, title-page and one sectional title pressure-stamped, first preface page with inked numeral in lower margin, no other markings. Two leaves each with short tear from upper inner margin, not touching text; a scattering of very light spots in first and final sections, central portion with more consistent but still extremely faint spotting in lower margins; overall a strong, clean, attractive volume.

Veit (1768-1837). 1816 wurde er Mitglied, 1829 außerordentlicher Professor der Dresdener Akademie. Er war ein ungewöhnlich fleißiger Künstler. Zahlreiche Zeichnungen von ihm, in Bleistift, Sepia, Aquarell oder Deckfarben, aus den Jahren 1799-1855 bewahren die Sammlungen in Dresden, Berlin und Weimar u.a.O. auf. Die Motive für seine eigenen Naturaufnahmen fand er in Sachsen, Nordböhmen (Karlsbad und Teplitz), Schlesien und dem Spreewald.

        Travels in North America in the Years 1827 and 1828.

      Edinburgh: For Cadell and Co., 1829. - 3 volumes. 8vo., (8 x 4 ¾ inches). Fine engraved frontispiece "Map of the United States and Canada" with original hand color (detached, some toning), folding demographic chart. Later quarter maroon morocco, marbled boards, the spine in six compartments separated by five raised bands, gilt lettered in three and the rest gilt tooled, all edges marbled (front cover of volume I detaching). First edition. Hall was s Captain in the British Navy, who published many accounts of his travels, most notably his "Account of a Voyage of Discovery to the West Coast of Correa, and the Great Loo-Choo Island," 1818. Having resigned from the Navy in 1823, Hall spent fourteen months of 1827-1828 touring the United States and, for nine weeks, Canada. "Aided by his literary reputation and more than 100 letters of recommendation, he dined with famous people such as President John Quincy Adams, the governors of several states, and artists and academics, toured all the chief eastern rivers, including the Alabama between Montgomery and Mobile, as well as the Great Lakes, the chief canals, and the Gulf of Mexico between Mobile and New Orleans. Hall's most significant land journey was by carriage across Georgia, an adventure far different from any in the more advanced eastern states, and one that included his being feted by the Creek Indians. Altogether he claimed to have traveled 8,800 miles in the United States and Canada. "Hall's three-volume 'Travels in North America in the Years 1827 and 1828,' published in 1829 in Edinburgh and London, was one of the most widely read of over 200 such books written by British travelers to North America before the Civil War. Like all of these books, however, it was in general condemned by American readers inordinately sensitive to and defensive about any European's judgments concerning the new nation's political experiments, its classless society, and its system of slavery which, especially to Britons at the time, was becoming more and more abhorrent. Nevertheless, perhaps in part because of Hall's intent to help his countrymen 'think the Americans more worthy of regard and confidence,' perhaps in part because he was determined to learn about America only from Americans, Hall's 'Travels' was more nearly acceptable in the United States than contemporaneous accounts by Frances Trollope, Dickens, and, especially, the outspoken Marryat, another retired naval captain who visited the United States in 1837-1838. Readers today, especially Americans, will in fact find Hall's keen, detailed, and well-written observations to be both just and significant. One highly original side feature of this American journey was the collection of forty drawings Hall made with the help of the camera lucida, and which he published simultaneously with the 'Travels' in a small volume that underwent several editions. The 'Travels' itself had two more editions in its first year" (Percy Addams for ANB). Sabin 29725. Howes H-47. Clark III 48. Dionne II 1045. Lande 404.
