        Manuscript - Court Documents - Counterfeiting Silver Coin Currency

      Indiana, 1829. Charlestown, Clark County, Indiana, 1829-1832. Five (5) Manuscript Documents pertaining to two (2) early trials from the Circuit Court, both for counterfeiting silver coin currency. Documents vary in size. 4 single leafs, 1 double leaf, each with clerk's filing annotations to verso, two of which outline trial costs. Some age-toning, otherwise in very good condition, easily legible and retaining a strong impression. Counterfeit currency began in Rochester, New York, in the late eighteenth century, which became the hub of production, but as these court documents indicate, such activities were also employed in the Midwest. In the 1830s Indiana's Washington County Circuit Court docket was replete with indictments for perjury, passing counterfeit money and having in possession counterfeiter's tools, assault and battery with intent to kill, larceny mayhem, manslaughter and murder. In September 1831, Gilbert Hyatt was sentenced to seven years imprisonment in the penitentiary for passing counterfeit money, and having in his possession counterfeiting apparatus. In the early 1850s, Archibald McGregor, Clinton Barnes, and Thomas Janes moved their counterfeiting enterprise from Monroe County, New York, to Elkhart, Indiana. By 1862, the New York Times estimated that 80% of the banknotes circulating in America at that time were counterfeit. Trial: 5 June 1829. Defendant: Thomas Richardson Two original manuscript transcripts of a court proceeding which recounts the trial of Thomas Richardson, the latter being charged with having counterfeited a 25 cent silver state coin which he offered in payment to one Sally Ann Dugan. Written in the same clerk's hand, these documents contain the same text, with the exception of one annotation to the verso of the smaller leaf which states the verdict of the sworn jury confirming his innocence. The State prosecuting attorney in this case was John N. Thompson; the foremen of the grand jury were Charles Beggs and Samuel Ford; there were five witnesses present. Excerpt: "... on the fifteenth day of May... one piece o false and counterfeit money, made and counterfeited to the likeness and similitude of the good, legal, and current money and silver coin of the United States of America called a twenty five cent piece and then and there in circulation in the State of Indiana, then and there falsely and deceitfully did utter and tender in payment... well knowing the same to be false and counterfeit..." Trial Dates: 26 November 1831, 24 January 1832, 1 March 1832. Defendants: Adam Strutsman, Samuel Strutsman Three separate documents tell the story of this trial, the charge being "retaining apparatus for counterfeiting." These include a detailed transcript of the hearing, a summons order for the primary defendant Adam Strutsman, and a bond of recognizance for the indictment. Strutsman is charged with possession of a steel die, five crucibles, and other apparatus used in counterfeiting a gold coin called a half eagle, which was worth $5.00 and made almost entirely of gold when produced legally. In January of 1832 Strutsman is arrested and brought before the court. In March of 1832 a recognizance against Strutman for $100.00 is levied; Interestingly, even though the Grand Jury saw firsthand the defendant's production instruments, and four witnesses were called, the clerk's final annotation dated 23 October 1832, almost one year after charges were made, states that Strutsman was found "Not Guilty". Excerpts: "... with force and arm... did knowingly (without any lawful authority whatever) retain in his possession one die made of steel, made use of in circulating the gold coin which is now in circulation within the State of Indiana aforesaid, in and upon which die then and there was made and impressed, the figure, stamp, resemblance, and similitude, of the sides and flats, (to wit) the head side of the lawful gold coin current in circulation... called a half eagle... " "And the Grand Jury do further present... Strutsman... did knowingly retain in his possession five crusibles made of materials to the Grand Jurors unknown, apparatus made use of in counterfeiting the gold and silver coin which is currently in circulation... " [The Half Eagle coin, composed almost entirely of gold, was first produced for circulation in 1795. It was authorized by The Act of April 2, 1792, and it was the first gold coin minted by the United States. The coin discussed in this trial would have been the second Draped Bust edition circulated 1813-1829.] Isaac Shelby was a recorder and court clerk in Clark County. Not above the law, as he may have hoped, he was charged with manstealing in 1817. His brother Evan was first a Clark County Clerk, and then a County Judge between 1811-1813. Counterfeiting of currency in America has its roots in Rochester, New York, as early the 1790s when an estimated three quarters of British coin money in America was in fact light-weight counterfeit production. American State and Spanish coins were also counterfeited, but to a lesser degree. The U.S. Mint first began producing circulating coins in 1793, but it took over fifty years for them to produce a sufficient medium of exchange to keep businesses supplied and the economy running smoothly. Into this breach stepped the counterfeiter to do his civic duty. Due to the shortage, an early merchant would do business with some counterfeit money or he would simply lose business. The first suspected counterfeiter from Rochester was its first white settler, Ebenezar Allen. In 1811, he was living across the border in Canada where he was arrested and charged, only to be acquitted by the British/Canadian court on the eve of the War of 1812. Prior to the Civil War (1861-65), banks printed paper money. Notes printed by state-chartered banks, which could be exchanged for gold and silver, were the most common form of paper currency in circulation. From the founding of the United States to the passage of the National Banking Act, some 8,000 different entities issued currency, which created an unwieldy money supply and facilitated rampant counterfeiting. In Rochester alone sixteen banks issued the minimum $1, $5, $10, and $20 bills, thus sixty-four different notes were possible from our city banks alone. Notes from neighboring villages and nearby cities were also circulated. The situation was ideal for the counterfeiter. Rochester seems to have been a center for passing and manufacturing counterfeit monies; from 1821-62 as many as 107 arrests were made, twenty-five percent of these between 1857 and 1859, a period of economic recession. Of that number only six were women. The Secret Service Division was created on July 5, 1865 in Washington, D.C., to suppress counterfeit currency. Chief William P. Wood was sworn in by Secretary of the Treasury Hugh McCulloch. Anti-counterfeiting measures for producing currency did not begin in the US until well into the twentieth century, decades later than many countries. Foreign coins were once also acceptable legal tender in the United States. Before gold and silver were discovered in the West in the mid-1800s, the United States lacked a sufficient quantity of precious metals for minting coins. Thus, a 1793 law permitted Spanish dollars and other foreign coins to be part of the American monetary system. Foreign coins were not banned as legal tender until 1857.. Very Good.

        Amir Khan, and Other Poems: the remains of Lucretia Maria Davidson, who died at Plattsburgh, N.Y. August 27, 1825, aged 16 years and 11 months. With a biographical sketch, by Samuel F.B. Morse

      New York: G. & C. & H. Carvill, 1829. First edition. xxix, [31], 174 pp. 1 vols. 12mo. Contemporary calf and boards, worn and rubbed, small tear in spine. Some dampstaining to preliminaries, mostly to outer margin, endpapers somewhat spotted. Early owner's signature of "Jane Anna Gates" on the front pastedown. The Icon of the Romantic Poetess Above and beyond any question as to the merits of her poetry, the death of the American prodigy / poetess at "sixteen years and eleven months", the posthumous publication of her poems in this volume, the portrait of her given by Morse in his biographical sketch, and above all, a subsequent article by Robert Southey in the quarterly review, caught the imagination of critics and poets across the Atlantic, and contributed greatly to the developement of a conception of the Romantic poetess as sacrificial victim on the altar of her own genius. Southey's comparison of her with her boy counterpart, Thomas Chatterton, fit with the prevailing need, as did Morse's portrait of her physical attributes: "In person, Miss Davidson was possessed of great beauty; a high, open forehead, a soft, black eye, perfect symmetry of features, fair complexion, and luxuriant, dark hair." - p. xxvii.An important book in the development of the popular ideology of the "poetess" -- and now quite rare on the market.

A wonderful set, the only colored 'Subscribers Copy' that we have ever seen.The largest and without question one of the most important series of political cartoons published in the nineteenth century, and the key visual record of the major and minor issues and personages on the contemporary British political stage; the art of political theater at its finest. For English graphic political history 1829-1851 one must rely on the drawings of "H.B." There are more than six hundred examples in the print room of the British Museum. Scarcely found with all nine volumes plus the supplementary Key; only three such copies have come to auction within the last thirty-five years, and none of these were hand-colored copies. OCLC and KVK locate only seven copies with all nine volumes and supplement but we are uncertain as to how many of these are actually colored 'Subscribers' copies.John Doyle (1797-1868), painter and caricaturist, studied drawing under an Italian landscape painter named Gabrielli, and in the Royal Dublin Society's schools. He was also a pupil of the miniature painter Comerford. In 1821 he came to London but although he occasionally exhibited at the Royal Academy, he was not entirely successful as a portrait painter. He subsequently turned his attention to lithography, and having in 1827 and 1828 produced some lithographed portraits with great success, was gradually led to begin the series known popularly as the caricatures of H.B. (a signature contrived by the junction of two J's and two D's). These came out in batches of four or five at a time, at irregular intervals, but during Parliamentary sessions at least once a month, and for many years were complimented by a semi-lead article in the Times explaining their meaning. The utmost pains were taken to preserve Doyle's anonymity, and with such success that almost to the last his identity was never revealed."You never hear any laughing at H.B.," wrote Thackeray in 1840, "his pictures are a great deal too genteel for that- polite points of wit, which strike one as exceedingly clever and pretty, and cause one to smile in a quiet, gentlemanlike kind of way." Other contemporaries strike a more enthusiastic note. Macaulay, writing to his sister in 1831, describes the delight he had derived from "the caricatures of that remarkably able artist who calls himself H.B." Wordsworth and Haydon were also warm in commending his work. "He has," said the latter, "an instinct for expression and power of drawing, without academical cant, I never saw before" (Journal, 29 Oct. 1831). Prince Metternich possessed his entire collection, and regarded them as most valuable records. Wilkie, Rogers, and Moore also thought very highly of them. John Doyle ?"came to the political scene at a moment when, for the first time in a century of caricature, there was no reigning artist: Cruikshank, who had succeeded Gillray, had turned from radical protest to illustration. Doyle?'s first prints appeared anonymously in 1827-8. From 1829 the monogram ?'HB?' concealed his identity, which remained a secret for years. His lithographed Political Sketches were finely drawn likenesses, with none of the distortion or vulgarity of the prints of the previous decades. The mild humour of his satires met with approval, as public taste veered to restraint and decorum. The series ran for twenty years, numbered to the final 917th print, and was issued with keys to identify the subjects.?" (Feaver, William. Masters of Caricature, p. 69).Doyle "revolutionized the art of caricature, concentrating mainly on politicians for his subjects. His work differed greatly from previous cartoonists such as Thomas Rowlandson (1756 - 1827) and James Gillray (1757 - 1815) who attempted to make their subjects look ugly and ridiculous. Doyle's pictures appeared in 'The Times' between 1829 and 1851. His drawings were always signed HB and at the time very few people knew his real name. Doyle's cartoons were daily commentaries of political events and were sometimes accompanied by an article explaining their meaning. John Doyle died on 2nd January 1868. One of his sons, Richard Doyle (1824 - 1883), was also a cartoonist. His other son, Charles, was the father of the writer, Arthur Conan Doyle (1859 - 1930), who created the fictional character Sherlock Holmes" (British Library of Political and Economic Science,"H.B.'s sketches…exhibit a vivid picture of the party politics of the period over which the series extend. The Duke of Wellington, Sir Robert Peel, and the other leaders of the time [including Lord Brougham, one of the leading progressive radicals of his time] stand out before us now as they appeared to their contemporaries. In the works of the older caricaturists likenesses were to some extent retained but the persons caricatured were usually depicted as monsters rather than as human beings. In the caricatures of H.B. the resemblance was perfect, and it was the position rather than the person that was distorted. There was plenty of satire but is was of a refined character" (Chamber's Encyclopaedia [1891], p. 767).Doyle's "chief merits are to be found in the facility with which he grasped an idea; the harmlessness and playfulness of his satire, which wrought a complete revolution in the style and manner of caricaturists; and above all in the excellence of his likenesses" (Everitt, p. 275)."Political Sketches by 'H. B.' (John Doyle) were the first examples of unexaggerated statement, and fair and decorous satire" (Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1911 Ed.)A golden opportunity to acquire the seldom available, overwhelming majority of the complete Political Sketches of this important, though now often neglected artist, and a matchless look at English political and art history.Cole and Hungerford, First Proofs of the Universal Catalogue of Books on Art, p. 767.

      London: Catalogues to be had at the Place of Sale; of W. and D. Laing, and W. Tait, Edinburgh; M. Ogle, Glasgow; and Milliken and Son, Dublin, 1829. vi p., 1 l., 164 p. folding frontispiece and 5 other plates. 650 priced items. Printed by Ibotson and Palmer, printers, Savoy Street, Strand. 8vo. Bound in modern tree calf, gilt spine. Former library stamp to verso of the title. Very Fine. The first illustrated Bookseller's Catalogue Although earlier auction and bookseller's catalogues contained images, typically with a portrait of the collector or the dealer, Cochran's is the first to depict items offered for sale. The collection of manuscripts described here, dating from the 12th through the 18th century, was brought together by Cochran from libraries and collections across Europe and England, and span seven centuries. The line engravings illustrate some of the most valuable items offered in the catalogue, including the frontispiece, which depicts a painting prefixed to item 193, "A Series of Ducal Credentials and Instructions..." a sixteenth-century manuscript from Venice--the bookseller offers the copperplate used to render the engraving to the purchaser, if desired. Item 73, "a magnificent manuscript on vellum, executed expressly, in 1475... for the Duchess of Burgundy" is illustrated with a scene of Aubert the Scribe presenting his book to the Duke of Burgundy. Also illustrated are item 353, a fifteenth century manuscript of a French Romance in verse; item 354, a manuscript (1525) for the Duchess of Vendôme; and item 324, depicting a scene from Boethius' Consolation of Philosophy from a fifteenth century illuminated manuscript. The descriptions of the 650 lots are finely detailed and well contextualized. Among the few printed items described in the catalog, the "Biblia Pauperum" (item 505) stands out; one of only two copies known, Cochran tells us with unveiled pride that the copy herein described was acquired at a Paris auction some four years prior, where he outbid the Bibliothèque Royale. He closes his description thus "It only remains to know in which Library in this country a volume of such interest and rarity will find a place." An important landmark documenting the history of the book trade.

For the new farmers, it gives advice about choosing a flock of sheep, the difference between good and bad breeds, sheep husbandry and the most common diseases. The same information is also provided for horses and cattle, cattle breeding for beef and for dairy farms. A six-page chapter is devoted to the Tasmanian aborigines. Appendix I is the third report of the Van Diemen's land Company, which explains, to the proprietors, the progress that had been made towards the acquisition of a tract of land, suitable for the purposes for which the company was formed. Appendix II is on the new settlements at Swan River on the western coast of Australia.A stamp has been excised from the title-page and the hole repaired, and there is an offset from an ink inscription at the foot of the map, not affecting the land, but the book and binding are otherwise in very good condition.

        Chart of part of New South Wales with plans of the harbours. Respectfully dedicated to John Oxley, Esq., Surveyor-General

      London: Joseph Cross, 1829. Large hand-coloured engraved map, 990 x 640 mm., dissected and backed on linen as issued; folding into an early binding of half blue grained calf, marbled sides; in very good condition. With an inset depicting Port Phillip. One of the great maps of New South Wales: this very fine and handsome map is notable for a series of important inset charts including Moreton Bay, Port Jackson, and Port Phillip. One of the most consulted of any of the Australian maps of this era, it is dedicated to John Oxley, then Surveyor General of New South Wales.The map was evidently a publishing success, as Cross printed several different versions in the period. The first version of the map was issued in 1826 and is easily recogniseable as it features a series of vignette views. In 1827 the basic map was reused but this time the vignettes were replaced by inset maps, and over ensuing years this version of the map was subtly updated and re-issued: this is the 1829 issue "corrected". Any issue is now of some rarity.The inset charts show: Moreton Bay, Port Macquarie, Port Stephens, Port Hunter, Broken Bay, Port Jackson, Botany Bay, Jervis Bay, Twofold Bay, Western Port, and Port Phillip. There is also an inset depiction of the entire Australian coastline. The map also prints a very detailed picture of the state of inland exploration, notably including the relatively recent discoveries of Hume and Hovell.The London publisher Cross was responsible for any number of important publications relating to Australia in the 1820s and 1830s, and was perhaps the most influential promoter of the colonies at that time.

        Manuscript - Album amoricum - 29 pencil and ink Drawings

      England, 1829. England and Wales, 1829-1834. Album amoricum containing 29 pencil and ink drawings, 12 of which are in colour, as well as poetic works. 8vo. 38 pages in manuscript, many of which are drawings. Entries are mostly initialled and dated. Leather boards with tooling and gilt, printed title page. Volume measures approximately 20 x 16 cm. Minor wear to boards, split internally at hinge yet remaining solid, otherwise in very good condition, clean and bright, a most unique and appealing volume. A collective work of exceptional drawings with vibrant colour and remarkable depth, made by an intimate group of uniquely artistic contributors. The gifted authors and artists number approximately ten, the most frequent identifying themselves as R.M.G. and W. Price. Three illustrations of notable talent are ambiguously initialled J.Y.R., whom certainly possessed the skill of a professional artist. Most uncommon is a tinted sketch drawing of a human skull to illustrate a pensive poem about those who fought and lost their lives in the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, titled "Lines on a Scull (brought form the Field of Waterloo]." We also find a sketch of Napoleon's tomb accompanied by a poem, and followed by "a translation of the introductory stanzas of an unpublished poem by Lucien Bonaparte entitle The Cirneide..." [Lucien Bonaparte, 1st Prince of Canino and Musignano, is a younger brother of Napoleon Bonaparte] Two remarkably charming images illustrate childhood creativity as young boys imitate a marching band and make musical instruments from simple household items. Indicative of the contributor's current surroundings and historic nobility, pencil sketches depict among other things, the Conway (Conwy) Castle and suspension bridge in Wales, Kirkstall Abbey in Leeds, and a covered boat floating on the Regent's Canal in north central London - its first section from Paddington to Camden Town, having opened in only a few years prior in 1816. Other items of interest are the exquisite coloured and gilded butterflies, a brief musical score, a poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe about birds, and drawings of ancient castles including a harbour fortress. 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 artefacts 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.. Very Good.

Top edges rough-trimmed; other edges deckled. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Thomas Jefferson in volume 4. Indexed. Good only. The extremities are mildly rubbed. Most of the covers have large, but light damp stains. The paper title labels are a bit chipped at the edges, and there are several small splits in the cloth along the joints. The pages are foxed, and have sporadic light tide marks. The largest tide marks measure 4" wide by 1" deep. A couple of the volumes have faint contemporary notations on the preliminary pages. The text blocks are cracked multiple times. The text block of volume 1 is beginning to pull away from the backstrip. Volume 1 is missing p. 193/94. Volumes 2-4 each have a handful of pages which are just hanging on by a thread. There is a small loss from the front flyleaf of volume 3. With a facsimile of the rough draught of the Declaration of Independence at the rear of volume 4. A set in original bindings of the first publication of Jefferson's letters following his death, published in Charlottesville, and edited by Thomas Jefferson's grandson, in an attempt to take control of his grandfather's legacy. This edition included a small portion of his actual letters, and was carefully edited by Jefferson's family, omitting subjects which were considered controversial.

        Geschichte und Statut der Rosen-Ritterschaft.

      (Berlin, wohl Juli 1829).. 8vo (20 : 12 cm). 20 S. Bedruckter Original-Umschlag unter einem Halbleinenband des späteren 19. Jahrhunderts.. Außerordentlich seltener Separatdruck der Seiten 373-392 von Herzog Karls um 1830 erschienenen "Erinnerungen an Berlin". Der Abschnitt beschließt dort die Beschreibung des Festspiels "Der Zauber der weissen Rose", von ihm am 13. Juli 1829 zum Geburtstagsbesuch von Zarin Alexandra Feodorowna, der vormaligen Prinzessin Charlotte von Preußen, im Potsdamer Neuen Palais inszeniert. Der Reimtext stellt eine Allegorie auf die Jugend der preußischen Königskinder, ihr Heranwachsen und ihre Vermählungen dar. Im Mittelpunkt steht "Blancheflour", Charlottes Identifikationsfigur aus Fouques "Zauberring", einer Lieblingslektüre der Geschwister. Wir vermuten einen Vorabdruck für den engsten Hofkreis zum Fest selbst. Er weist eigene Paginierung und Bogennorm auf, der Titel findet sich nur auf dem Umschlag, noch nicht am Textkopf. Die doppelte Fußnote auf p. 391 der "Erinnerungen" fehlt noch, daher läuft der bis dahin parallele Satz ab p. 17 des Heftes etwas abweichend. Textvarianten sind nicht festzustellen. Der Roseton des Papiers macht den Anlaß augenfällig, weißes hätte keinen Effekt gemacht. - Heftung brüchig, kleine Tintenflecken am Rückumschlag, Papiertönung etwas verblaßt.

Er skizzierte wahrscheinlich die Mädchen wegen ihrer ortsunüblichen Tracht: Die Haubenformen verweisen sie in die Gegend um Biedenkopf und Gladenbach (Hinterland); vgl. hierzu Album Marburg, S. 89. Ludwig Emil Grimms Maxime, treu nach der Natur zu zeichnen, und seine besondere Liebe zum Detail sind bei der Darstellung der Trachten von besonderem Vorzug.Der vor allem als Radierer tätige Grimm war 1804-1808 Schüler der Kasseler Kunstakademie bei Gottlieb Kobold (1769-1809), Andreas Range (1762-1828) und Ernst Friedrich Ferdinand Robert (1763-1843). Durch seine Brüder Jacob und Wilhelm Grimm wurde er mit Clemens Brentano (1778-1842) und Achim von Arnim (1781-1831) bekannt, mit denen er zusammenarbeitete. Wohl 1807 lernte Grimm Bettine Brentano (1785-1859) kennen, von der er zahlreiche Porträts anfertigte. In November 1808 zog er nach Landshut zu Brentano und dessen Schwager Friedrich Carl von Savigny (1779-1861). Auf ihre Vermittlung ging er nach München und erlernte Kupferstechen bei Carl Ernst Christoph Heß (1755-1828). Zugleich studierte er an der Münchner Akademie unter Andreas Seidl (1760-1834). Unterbrechung des Studiums 1814 durch Teilnahme an den Freiheitskriegen.
