        Reise durch das nördliche Italien in den Jahren 1825 bis 1826. Von Karl Jeanrenaud?. Eigenhändige Niederschrift durch seinen Jugendfreund Eduard Ernst Heitz.

      Frankfurt am Main 1829. - 8vo (18.5 : 11 cm). 2 weiße Bl., 2 Bl., 24 S., 1 Bl. Register, 5 weiße Bl. Der Frankfurter Jurist Carl Jeanrenaud (1814-91) war ein Sohn des französisch-reformierten Pfarrers Franz August Jeanrenaud (1788-1819) und der Elisabeth Souchay (1796-1871). Das vorliegende Tagebuch überliefert eine Reise des elfjährigen Jeanrenaud von Frankfurt nach den oberitalienischen Kulturstätten vom 24. X. 1825 bis 30. IV. 1826. Als Begleiter werden genannt: die Mutter, der Großvater (Carl Cornelius Souchay, Frankfurter Hugenotte & Patrizier, Textilhändler & Spekulant in Manchester, Urgroßvater von Max Weber), sowie dessen jüngere Tochter Emilie, Carls erst zwanzigjährige Tante und spätere Fallenstein. Mehrfach erwähnter Cicerone war der geschäftlich in Italien tätige Onkel Jean (Jean, Johann oder John Souchay, Bruder von Elisabeth Jeanrenaud und Emilie Souchay). Außer den Sehenswürdigkeiten und Theatern von Mailand, der toskanischen Städte und Venedigs werden Mitglieder der Frankfurter Familien Gontard, Neufville, Passavant und Mylius besucht. Der Bericht ist in der ersten Person aus der Sicht des Knaben abgefaßt und vom Titel bis zum Register in einheitlicher, sehr sauberer Feder auf feinem Schreibpapier niedergeschrieben. Das auf den Titel folgende Blatt macht jedoch deutlich, daß nicht Carl Jeanrenaud selbst die Feder führte. Es ist ?Aneignung an Jeanrenaud? überschrieben und 16. X. 1829 datiert, wenige Tage nach Carls 15. Geburtstag am 7. X. Der Text lautet: ?Was du dereinst in frohen Jugendstunden, Gedacht, geliebt u. kindlich tief empfunden, Ist diesen Blättern freundlich anvertraut, Sie werden mich durchs Leben treu begleiten Als schönes Denkmahl deiner Jugendfreuden, Worin der Freund des Freundes Sinn erschaut? Am Vorsatz findet sich der gleichzeitige Vermerk ?Eduard Ernst 1829?, auf dem ersten weißen Blatt ein 50 Jahre späterer Bleistift-Vermerk von Jeanrenauds Hand mit Unterschrift: ?Nach Eduard Heitz (Sammler, Dr. theol.) am 19. Januar 1879 erfolgtem Ableben - nat. 25. Juli 1810 - zu Frankfurt a.M. von dessen Wittwe Frau Caroline Heitz geb. Rehbock zur Erinnerung an den verstorbenen Freund erhalten? Demnach scheint Eduard Ernst Heitz 1829 - mit 19 Jahren vielleicht Hauslehrer bei den Jeanrenauds - Briefe oder Aufzeichnungen von Carls Italienreise für sich selbst zu einem ?Monumentum Amicitiae? verarbeitet zu haben. - Cf. G. Roth, Max Webers deutsch-englische Familiengeschichte 1800-1950, Tübingen 2001, passim. - Einband gering berieben, Schuber bestoßen. Innen sauber und frisch. Schwarzes Maroquin-Bändchen d. Zt. mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel, türkisfarbenen Lackpapiervorsätzen und Goldschnitt, geschützt durch einen grauen Pappschuber d. Zt.

Limited edition, number 7 of 150 copies for sale, signed by Bowdler Sharpe and each of the artists. An attractive edition of White's magnum opus. The Natural History and Antiquities of Selborne had its origins in White's correspondence with Daines Barrington and Thomas Pennant, in which they discussed their observations and theories about local flora, fauna and wildlife. White believed in studying living birds and animals in their natural habitat which was an unusual approach at that time, as most naturalists preferred to carry out detailed examinations of dead specimens in the comfort of their studies. This deceptively simple and unpretentious account of natural comings and goings in an eighteenth-century Hampshire parish has come to be regarded as one of the most perfectly realized celebrations of nature in the English language. The American writer J. R. Lowell once described it as 'the journal of Adam in Paradise.' Thank you for your purchase from Sunset Books! Help Promote World Literacy, GIVE a Book as a GIFT!!

        The Western Pilot Containing Charts of the Ohio River, and of the Mississippi from the Mouth of the Missouri to the Gulf of Mexico . . . . Also a Variety of Matter Interesting to Travellers, and All Concerned in the Navigation of those Rivers

      Cincinnati: N. and G Guilford, 1829. Hardcover. Good to Very Good. Approximately 5" x 9". Complete with [v] unnumbered introductory pages and 104 text pages with an illustrated half-title, five plates, and 44 maps (20 numbered maps of the Ohio plus 1 unnumbered map of the "Falls of the Ohio" and 23 maps of the Mississippi). Original quarter leather with black paper-covered boards. Sound binding with cracked hinges. The uncut pages are soiled and foxed; several have marginal tears. There is a significant damp-stain to the front flyleaf and first five leaves. The cover is worn, most heavily along the spine. It would appear that this copy was used as intended. Cumming's Western Pilot, (published in more than 20 edition under various titles between 1822 until 1866), was the second, but most accurate and most important, guide book for the Ohio and Mississippi. In addition to providing concise detailed descriptions of twists, turns, channels, bars, and other assorted river hazards, Cummings also provided short descriptions of river cities and towns. Additionally, he included summary descriptions of the Mississippi, Missouri, and Ohio Rivers from Flint's Geography and History of the Western States as well as reprints of Mogan Neville's Mike Fink biography, "The Last of the Boatmen," and James Hall's short story about life in a Mississippi Valley fur-trading town, "The French Village." See: Howes C-948 and Sabin 17904 Despite its flaws, this book is complete in its original binding and, as such, it is quite scarce. As of 2016, no 1829 or earlier editions are for sale in the trade, and only two have come up for auction in the last 50 years per ABPC and the Rare Book Hub. OCLC shows many digital or microform holdings of this edition or earlier but only one real book, however Rink's Technical Americana identifies copies at 15 institutions.

        Novum Testamentum Domini Nostri et Servatoris Jesu Christi sub auspiciis D. Asselini rerum gallicarum apude Aegyptios procuratoris in Linguam Amharicam vertit Abu - Rumi Habessinus [ The first translation of the New testament into Amharic ]

      Ricardus Watts Richard Watts, 1829. Edidit Thomas Pell Platt A.M., 1 vol. petit in - 4 reliure de l'époque pleine basane marron estampée à froid, impression en deux couleurs, Impensis Societatis Ad Biblia sacra in Britannia et apud exteras gentes evulganda Institutae, Impressit Ricardus Watts [Richard Watts ], Londini [ Londres, London ], 1829, [ - ]2, B - Z4 2A - 2Q4, 2R2, B* - Z*4, AA* - ZZ*4, AAA* - DDD*4, DDD**4. Très rare exemplaire de la première traduction du Nouveau Testament en Amharique. Le consul français au Caire, Jean Louis Asselin de Cherville, avait élaboré durant 10 années cette traduction avec le secours d'Abu Rumi (l'ancien traducteur de l'explorateur James Bruce). Il n'existait auparavant que des traductions partielles en amharique, et la bible éthiopienne existait seulement en langue Ge'ez. Le manuscrit en fut acquis par William Jowett au bénéfice de la British and Foreign Bible Society. Le présent exemplaire est parfaitement conforme à la collation indiquée par Fumagalli dans sa Bibliografia Etiopica, 1384 : "Questo Nuovo Testamento si compono dei Vangeli del 1824 e degli altri liberi stampati nel 1829. Il volume ha il seguente registro : da B a 2R (fine dei Vangeli), da B* a DDD*, piu la segn. DDD*** e i due frontesp. latino ed amarico. Il quad. 2R non ha che due carte". La reliure d'origine est conservée, mais a été renforcée à l'adhésif. Hormis un très petit travail de vers marginal en début d'ouvrage, le texte est d'une fraîcheur remarquable. The first complete New Testament published in Amharic. The translator, Abu Rumi, was an Abyssinian monk. He was helped by M. Asselin de Cherville, French consul in Cairo. The editor was P. T. Platt, (1798 - 1852), librarian of the British and Foreign Bible Society, assisted by Samuel Lee, professor of Arabic at Cambridge. They bought the manuscript of the Bible for 1250.00 £.

        Physiologie du Gout, ou Méditations de Gastronomie Transcendante; ouvrage théorique, historique et à l'ordre du jour, dédié aux gastronomes parisiens. Troisième édition

      A. Sautelet (et) Alexandre Mesnier, 1829. 2 voll. in 8°(mm 215x130). Pagg. (4), 410; (4), 432. Elegante mezza pelle di vitello coeva con piatti e tagli marmorizzati, dorso a nervi titolo impresso in oro e impressioni a secco agli scomparti, fregi dorati. Prima edizione illustrata da due litografie fuori testo di Henry Monnier. Brillat - Savarin intellettuale e gastronomo (aveva studiato legge e fu magistrato, diplomatico e musicista, insignito della Legion d'Onore) si dedica inizialmente a scritti di carattere giuridico - economico, ma solo successivamente avrà la sua notorietà grazie alla pubblicazione della " Physiologie du Gout", che viene pubblicata un anno prima della sua morte. L'opera alterna riflessioni sui cinque sensi, descrizioni e aneddoti, digressioni filosofiche e di costume, annotazioni scientifiche; Brillat - Savarin si ispira per le meditazioni, a maestri quali Voltaire, Rousseau, Fenelon, Buffon, Cochin e d'Aguesseau. Il linguaggio che l'autore sceglie è spontaneo, ricco di massime e proverbi vecchi come l'umanità, mescola umorismo e impertinenza, insolenza e derisione; come modernista, egli usa tutti gli stilemi letterari, e quando quelli francesi non sembrano bastare, non esita mai a prendere in prestito una parola, come il sorso inglese drink. Si tratta di un caposaldo teorico della cucina borghese, che eserciterà una straordinaria influenza sulla letteratura culinaria futura; i suoi importanti scritti, analizzati anche dopo la morte dell'autore, saranno annoverati tra i classici. Aprono l'opera 20 venti divertenti aforismi incentrati sull'arte della gastronomia: "Gli animali si nutrono; l'uomo mangia"; "Solo l'uomo dispirito sa come mangiare"; "Dimmi cosa mangi, ti dirò chi sei"; "La scoperta di un piatto fa la felicità del genere umano più che la scoperta di una stella"; "Un dessert senza formaggio è come una bella donna a cui manca un occhio" ed altri. Impareggiabile "homme d'esprit", secondo la definizione di Balzac, Brillat - Savarin del cibo non coglie tanto l'aspetto edonistico ma soprattutto quello sociale ed è questo che rende la sua opera così moderna. Il critico letterario Roland Barthes omaggia l'A. dicendo: Il libro di Brillat Savarin è dall'inizio alla fine "propriamente umano" poichè è il desiderio che distingue l'uomo. All'autore è stato dedicato nel 1930 il formaggio Brillat Savarin. Bell'esemplare in elegante legatura. Ottimo stato di conservazione, minime fioriture tipiche della carta. Vicaire 117:"Nel considerare i piaceri della tavola sotto i più diversi aspetti, m'ero reso conto da tempo che in questo campo c'era da fare qualcosa di meglio di un semplice libro di cucina, e che molto si poteva dire su funzioni così essenziali, così continue e che influiscono così direttamente sulla salute, sulla felicità e persino sugli affari. Una volta stabilita quest'idea madre, tutto il resto è venuto da sé: mi sono guardato intorno, ho preso appunti, e spesso, in mezzo ai più sontuosi banchetti, il piacere di osservare mi ha salvato dalla noia conviviale. Certo, per tener fede agli impegni che m'ero prefisso, ho dovuto improvvisarmi fisico, chimico, fisiologo e persino, in una certa misura, erudito".

Erste Ausgabe, feines Exemplar des originalen Textbabndes; die Tafeln in Faksimile! - - Das Hauptwerk des Schöpfers der Plastischen Chirurgie war Über einen Zeitraum von 6 Jahren erschienen, sind vollständige Exemplare extrem selten. Zwischen dem Erscheinen des ersten und letzten Bandes avancierte Dieffenbach vom einfachen praktischen Arzt zum Professor an der Friedrich-Wilhelm-Universität und "dirigierenden Arzt" der Abteilung für chirurgische Kranke an der Charité. Das Handbuch enthält eine Zusammenfassung sämtlicher Leistungen und Erfindungen Dieffenbachs. - Es ist ein epochemachendes Werk aus der Pionierzeit der modernen Plastischen Chirurgie und ein Markstein in der Entwicklung dieses Fachgebietes. - - Noch zum Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts hatte die Pariser Akademie der Medizin die operative Nasen-Neubildung für ganz unmöglich erklärt. Die Erfahrungen Tagliacozzis waren in Vergessenheit geraten und die großen Chirurgen der Zeit berichteten zweifelnd oder wegwerfend über die Möglichkeiten des organischen Ersatzes. Erst als sichere Nachricht von der indischen Nasenbildung nach Europa gelangt waren (siehe mein Angebot "B.L., Article on Hindu rhinoplasty") beschäftigten sich einige Ärzte mit der neuen Technik. Mit Carpue in London, v. Graefe in Berlin erreichte die Methode einen ersten Höhepunkt. Aber erst in Dieffenbach, dem "Vater der plastischen Chirurgie", der alle Gebiete der Gesichts- und Körperplastik gültig bearbeitete, fand dieses neue Spezialgebiet der Chirurgie seinen Begründer und Vollender. Die ehrwürdige Charité wurde unter Dieffenbach zur "Wiege der Plastischen Chirurgie". Vor Einführung von Asepsis und Anästhesie erbracht, verlangen die Behandlungserfolge des genialen Arztes besondere Bewunderung. - - First Edition. Dieffenbach showed his early interest in the transplantation of tissue in the subject of his docotral thesis "Nonullade regeneratione et transplantatione", and only seven years later published the first of his surgical observations on a variety of operations for the restoration of defective parts of the body. One of the greatest geniuses in the history of plastic surgery, Dieffenbach pioneered many methods and principles which "have not been improved upon and are still constantly employed" (Gnudi & Webster). - - Garrison & Morton 5743; Waller 2441 (incomplete); Wellcome II, 466 (incomplete); Hirsch-H., II, 263; Zeis No.346, 690; Zeis/Patterson Index I, 94-104 + 527; McDowell, Source book of plastic surgery, 442 - 242; Gnudi-Webster 321 -322; Maltz, Evolution of plastic surgery, 23- 33; Bankoff, Story of plastic surgery, 48-49; Wallace, Progress of plastic surgery, 46-47; Goldschmid, 133.

        Specimens of American Poetry, with Critical and Biographical Notices. In Three Volumes

      S.G. Goodrich and Co, Boston 1829 - First edition of this landmark collection of early American poetry, conceived as a patriotic project to counter "the insinuation thrown out some years ago by our neighbors across the ocean, that there was no such thing as an American book worthy of being read." Casting a wide net, editor Kettell collected the work of over two hundred early American poets in support of his claim that "we are now becoming a literary people." Highlights include an excerpt from the Bay Psalm Book, Philip Freneau's "The Dying Indian," William Cullen Bryant's "Thanatopsis," and the lyrics of "The Star-Spangled Banner." Seventeen of the poets included are women. Volume III concludes with a catalogue of books consulted by the editor, a valuable addition for the historian, representing the earliest mention in print of Edgar Allan Poe's first book, Tamerlane. A near-fine copy of an American literary monument, "the fullest anthology of American literature published to that time" (Oxford Handbook of Early American Literature). Three twelvemo volumes, early twentieth-century brown pigskin over textured tan cloth boards, raised bands, spines tooled in gilt, marbled endpapers, text blocks uncut and partially unopened. Catalogue of American Poetry at rear of volume III. Bookplate of collector Perry Beaver Strassburger (1888-1954) to front free endpaper of volume I. Light foxing throughout, occasional light scuff to bindings, closed tear to preliminary blank of Volume I. Laid into Volume I is a handwritten note from Strassburger's widow, presenting "the Early American Poetry books which belonged to your Uncle Perry," along with his spectacles, to her nephew Peter.

The young Gogol arrived in St. Petersburg from his native Ukraine in December 1828. ''For the moment, his main idea was to publish the works he had brought with him: his short poem Italy, and the long one, Hans Kuechelgarten… He sent Italy to ''Syn Otechestva'', a periodical, asking the director, Thaddeus Bulgarin, to publish it anonymously. Bulgarin was a paid police informer, held in contempt by all his colleagues but in high esteem by the government. He acceded to the request of his unknown correspondent, and on March 23, 1829, Nikolai Gogol, who had just celebrated his twentieth birthday, read his poetry printed in black on white in a publication circulating in hundreds of copies… No one mentioned his work in the press, but the young man swelled with pride'' (Troyat, Gogol, p.48).

Van Buren,"" as Secretary of State, 5 pages, 8"" x 12.5"", Washington, March 31, 1829, to Don Francisco Dionisio Vives, Governor and Captain General of Cuba. Expected folds, moderate but even toning, minor loss at right margin affecting two words of text, else very good.An important letter of state introducing Florida attorney Richard K. Call (1792-1862) as a Special Agent to the governor general of Cuba. It reads in full: ""Extensive and valuable tracts of land, in the Territory of Florida, being claimed by individuals, under grants, or pretended grants, from the Crown of Spain, whilst that Territory formed a part of the dominions of the Spanish Monarchy, the President has judged it expedient, in order to ascertain the true character and validity of these titles, to send a Special Agent to the ___ Havana, for the purpose of procuring documentary and other evidence form the Public Archives, and other authentic sources of information there, which may serve to their elucidation and adjustment, and he has, accordingly, appointed Mr. Richard K. Call, one of our must respected Citizens, and the bearer of this communication to your Excellency, Special Agent of the United Sates, for the performance of this service. I beg leave, therefore, to recommend Mr Call to the favorable —countenance of your Excellency, and to solicit, for him, at your Excellency's hands, the protection and facilities which may be found necessary to enabl[e] him to fulfil the purpose of his – agency, in this important and delicate service. He will himself, have the honor of making Your Excellency more particularly acquainted with the nature and extent of he commission with which he is charged, and of indicating the facilities which it may be desirable should be extended to him, towards the execution of it. In the meantime, I rely with confidence upon Your Excellency's enlightened sense of justice, for a due appreciation of the motives of this application, and upon the liberal spirit of accommodation and kindness – towards the United States, which has uniformly marked your administration of the Government of Cuba, for a ready compliance with it. I pray Your Excellency to accept the assurance of the very high and distinguished consideration with which I have the honor to be Your Excellency's Obedient & humble Servant...""Beginning in 1790, Spain offered land grants to encourage settlements in Florida, which at the time was sparsely-populated and vulnerable to incursions from the United States. When the United States assumed control of Florida following the 1819 Adams-Onís Treaty (ratified in 1821), it agreed to honor those grants. However the United States required residents to provide proof of these grants. Those unable to produce documents were required to submit testimonials. After nearly a decade, some grants were still the subject of dispute and the Jackson Administration charged Richard K. Call, an attorney and close friend of Andrew Jackson, who in 1821 helped establish the new territorial government in Florida, to travel to Havana to examine official Spanish records to verify Spanish claims. In March 1836, Andrew Jackson appointed Call as Governor of the Florida Territory—where he had established two major plantations near Tallahassee. "

        Butterfly Study (P. Hero)

      [ca. 1823-1829] - FREMINVILLE, Christophe-Paulin de La Poix, chevalier de (1787-1848). Butterfly Study (P. Hero), [ca. 1823-1829]. Single sheet, matted (4 7/16 x 6 3/4 inches). Fine original pen and ink and watercolour drawing inscribed by Freminville beneath the image of the butterfly "P. Hero." In the lower right corner is inscribed "France meridionale" Freminville was the son of a naval architect. He chose a naval career after hearing a lecture on Captain Cook's voyages. At the age of 15, Freminville joined the navy and traveled to Haiti under General LeClerc. While there he discovered the great ray, native to the bay of Port-au-Prince, which came to bear his name. In 1819 he published a book with Thomas M'Keevor called "A voyage to Hudson's Bay during the summer of 1812: containing a particular account of the icebergs and other phenomena which present themselves in those regions; also, a description of the Esquimeaux and North American Indians; their manners, customs, dress, language, &c." which was pubilshed in London and Printed by Sir Richard Phillips and Co. By the time he retired in the 1830's, Freminville had spent most of his life at sea, traveling from Iceland and Russia to Central and South America to West Africa and the Antilles, and drawing specimens of exotic species. He enjoyed much fame in his own day as an antiquary and writer of travel accounts, but he died having produced only one book on natural history subjects, Considerations Generales sur les Moeurs et les Habitudes des Serpens (1842). The drawings that Freminville left behind were intended for a half-dozen other related works on exotic butterflies, fish, mollusks, snakes, and other reptiles, but these books remained unrealized.

        ALS to her daughter Janet Ranken

      [Sydney or Scotland]: 21 August, 1829. Old folds.. Three-page ALS in a neat but unfinished hand, 228 x 185 mm., original red wax seal, stamp for the Sydney post office but not otherwise marked, very good. A charming and rather rare example of a woman writing from Sydney in the 1820s. The letter was written to Janet Ranken, the wife of the important Bathurst pastoralist and settler George, one of the first to take up land in the region. On George Ranken see a long entry in the Australian Dictionary of Biography, and the well-regarded 1916 memoir The Rankens of Bathurst. The only mystery about the letter is whether it was written in Scotland (where it is probably likely that Mrs Hutchison was still living) or Sydney (the sealed letter has only one postal stamp, for Sydney): was Janet Ranken's mother also an immigrant to New South Wales?The letter was written to her daughted Janet "Jenny" Ranken Hutchison, who had then been living in Bathurst for several years, having married the pastoralist George Ranken in May 1821 before the newlyweds sailed on the Lusitana. Ranken leased property from John Piper in Sydney, and was one of the first to be granted land in Bathurst, naming his property Kelloshiel, to which property they moved in 1823.This letter dates from 1829, when the Rankens were firmly settled in Bathurst, and her mother opens with some pointed chiding of young Mrs. Ranken, who has let her duties as a correspondent slip, the more so as reports have reached her that she George have had a new child, a daughter, as long ago as December 1828, and yet "not one word from George or you" (the lack of any mail "was not the way you used to do on similar occasions" notes her mother primly). Mrs Hutchison includes an interesting aside that "you have often spoek of coming home but so long as you are so [word] in the family way I do not see how it is posable".The rest of the long letter is taken up with fabulous gossip regarding all of their acquaintance, all told in a breathless and sometimes startlingly direct style: "we had Jessie and Tibbie Taylors here lately about a week", starts one passage, "as poor and as proud as ever" A mutual friend Marion has got word of the death of her husband, "but I am one among many who does not believe he is dead." Her son Peter is up to his old tricks ("if he knew the anxiety that his old Mother and Sisters are in about him"), and her daughters are "all in the usual (?) way often complaining tho nothing deadly I think amongst them". A mysterious Mr. Smith, well known to Janet, "is nothing at all going about like an old beggar man, patching and working with Bees…". While the uppity "Mr and Mrs Otto have now got - to the astonishment of the natives - a gigg, but tho it is now nine months since she got it she has been just once in it." Their niece Jean Otto is down to buy her "wedding draws" (?), and is to be married to an "active steady young man a writer" who had stayed many times with the Otto family. And so on.The letter concludes with a return to her heartfelt wish that she could know about what is happening in Bathurst: "I wish you would let me know what you are doing with your boys and how many is begun to learn and what is Miss Rankin like and all about them."A short obituary of Janet Ranken was published in the Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser for 25 October 1883, noting that she had initially stayed in Petersham while Kelloshiel was being laid out, but not noting who she was living with at that time - it is possible that the letter, that is, dates from Petersham.

        The Whitesborough Patent: manuscript ledger recording sale of land in Delaware County NY.

      1829 - 1844.. Hardcover. Good + condition. A fascinating record of land speculation and ownership of New York state land as it passed from the original British patent holders, including Henry White (British, d. 1786) based in New York City, to Ebenezer Foote (1756 - 1829), who fought in the Revolutionary War. Foote saw action at Bunker Hill, survived Valley Forge, and was captured and escaped from captivity in Bridewell Prison in New York City. After the war Foote became a merchant, land agent, politician, judge and a founder of Delaware County. The Whitesborough patent was granted to several individuals including Henry White, a loyalist, New York City merchant, and member of the Council authorizing the granting of patents. He chose the upstate land (ca. 1770s) "from an idea that it might in remote times be beneficial to his children", perhaps thinking of a time when he and his children might have to flee the city. White remained a loyalist throughout the war, returning to England. His land in New York was confiscated by the state in 1779, whereupon he appealed to the Commissioners of Forfeiture for compensation, with limited results. He died in England in 1786.Ebenezer Foote, who purchased the land in 1799, was very active after the war, serving as member of the New York legislature (1792, 1794, 1796, and 1797) and working in the mercantile business in Newburgh and Ulster County until 1797. Foote helped found Delaware County and moved to Delhi.Foote served as the first county clerk of Delaware County (1798 - 1801), as a member of the state senate (1798 - 1802), and conducted an extensive land agency. In 1810, Foote was appointed the judge of the New York Court of Common Pleas, serving until 1816, and then again, from 1828 until his death in 1829.The ledger records Charles Hathaway acting as agent. William Sherriff, whose name is noted here, was one of the original Whitesborough patent holders, and had served as Quarter Master General for the British in the Revolution. A notice signed by Hathaway at the title page states, "Account of lands sold by the late Ebenezer Foote, and of lands contracted by Charles Hathaway, in the Whitesborough patent, for Capt. Wm. H. Shirriff (sic) the proprietor, rendered in May 1844".The ledger includes an alphabetical index of the names of the land purchasers, followed with the lot numbers, acreage, purchase price and payments recorded, on the first 95 double pages. Beginning with earliest date of 1816 and carrying through to 1850. At the rear of the volume a manuscript folding map shows the location of the lots. Map unfolds to 26" wide x 9 1/2", and extends to the Delaware River in the northeast, and showing lots numbered 1 through 40. It appears that 9 of the 40 lots have been subdivided, and new owners recorded. 8vo, 95 hand numbered pages are completed in a beautiful hand calligraphy, with about 20 double pages left blank. Faint foredge tide mark. Full brown calf with blind stamped decoration, gilt title at spine, "Ledger".

        Dromia Aegagropilus

      [ca. 1823-1829] - FREMINVILLE, Christophe-Paulin de La Poix, chevalier de (1787-1848). Dromia Aegagropilus, [ca. 1823-1829]. Single sheet, matted (4 1/16 x 6 1/8 inches). Fine original pen and ink and watercolour drawing inscribed by Freminville beneath the image of the crustacean "Dromia Aegagropilus." In the lower right corner is inscribed "Mediterranea" Freminville was the son of a naval architect. He chose a naval career after hearing a lecture on Captain Cook's voyages. At the age of 15, Freminville joined the navy and traveled to Haiti under General LeClerc. While there he discovered the great ray, native to the bay of Port-au-Prince, which came to bear his name. In 1819 he published a book with Thomas M'Keevor called "A voyage to Hudson's Bay during the summer of 1812: containing a particular account of the icebergs and other phenomena which present themselves in those regions; also, a description of the Esquimeaux and North American Indians; their manners, customs, dress, language, &c." which was pubilshed in London and Printed by Sir Richard Phillips and Co. By the time he retired in the 1830's, Freminville had spent most of his life at sea, traveling from Iceland and Russia to Central and South America to West Africa and the Antilles, and drawing specimens of exotic species. He enjoyed much fame in his own day as an antiquary and writer of travel accounts, but he died having produced only one book on natural history subjects, Considerations Generales sur les Moeurs et les Habitudes des Serpens (1842). The drawings that Freminville left behind were intended for a half-dozen other related works on exotic butterflies, fish, mollusks, snakes, and other reptiles, but these books remained unrealized.
