        Autograph letter signed.

      Naples, 28. I. 1831. - Large 4to. 3 pp. on bifolium, addressed and with seal. Long, unpublished letter to the Augsburg painter Moritz Rugendas (1802-58) in Paris: the lost answer to his letter of December 29th (now in the Munich BSB, Hss. Plateniana 69.23), in which the painter had announced his going to America. Platen responded a month later: "Ihren Brief vom 29ten December habe ich erst gestern erhalten, konnte ihn daher nicht früher beantworten. Tausend Dank für Ihre Mittheilungen sowohl, als für das von mir so sehr gewünschte Buch. Ich bin allerdings auch zum Zeitungsleser geworden; aber weder der Globe noch der Temps stehen mir zu Gebot. Sie schreiben nicht, von welcher Art der Aufsatz im Globe ist, und von wann? Mit dem, was Sie mir aus dem temps mittheilen, kann ich nicht anders als zufrieden sein, die Uebersetzung ist nicht besonders treu, aber doch lesbar. Wenn Sie mir diese Blätter gedruckt schicken, so soll es mir recht angenehm sein. Von der Ode an Karl X machen Sie den Gebrauch, der Ihnen am Vortheilhaftesten scheint. Es soll mir sehr ehrenvoll sein, wenn sie dem König übergeben wird, ob in meinem Namen oder nicht, mögen Sie selbst bestimmen. Eben so habe ich nichts dagegen, wenn sie gut übersetzt den Franzosen mitgetheilt wird, und da diese Ode in Deutschland noch nicht bekannt ist, so würde es mir um so mehr Vergnügen machen, wenn die guten Deutschen sie zuerst in einer französischen Uebersetzung müssten kennen lernen. Es wäre mir daher lieb, wenn sie in ein Paar der bei uns gelesensten Blätter aufgenommen würde. In der That hat diese Ode ihre ersten Leser in Paris gefunden, da ich [sie] hier noch Niemandem mitgetheilt, noch anderswohin geschickt habe. Ob sie den Franzosen gefällt und vor Allem dem König, davon werden Sie mich wohl nicht mehr benachrichtigen können, da Sie Europa so schnell verlassen wollen. Sie sollten mich daher mit Einem Ihrer französischen Freunde in Verbindung setzen, der mir auch zugleich von Zeit zu Zeit über die merkwürdigsten Produkte der dortigen Litteratur, seien sie historisch oder poetisch einige Nachricht gäbe, da man hier so wenig erfährt. Auch wäre ich neugierig zu erfahren, ob mein neustes Gedicht bei Ihren Pariser Freunden gut aufgenommen werden wird. Mein Epos ist nämlich noch im vorigen Jahr vollendet worden. Es heißt: Die Abbasiden, ein Gedicht in neun Gesängen. Wie leid thut es mir, daß ich es nicht in Druck verwandeln und Ihnen auf Ihre Reise mitgeben kann. Aber dazu sind noch ein Paar Monate nöthig, zumal bei meinen Verhältnissen zu Cotta. Sollten Sie mich mit Einem Ihrer Freunde in Verbindung bringen, so könnte er mir französisch schreiben, und ich deutsch oder italienisch; denn wiewohl ich ehemals manche französische Correspondenz geführt habe, so bin ich in dieser Sprache zu sehr außer Uebung gekommen. Was die Ode an Karl X betrifft, so bitte ich Sie, den letzten Vers so zu ändern: Haupt, wie das deine, so hehr und heilig. Dem Sinn nach kann zwar keine Zweideutigkeit entstehen, wohl aber könnte die Worte ein boshafter Ausleger verdrehn. Wenn Sie hier wären, würden Sie schwerlich von Kälte leiden; wir haben selbst im Januar noch 10 Gr. Wärme. Der Vesuv ist wieder ruhig geworden; doch gewährte er im Anfange Decembers ein herrliches Schauspiel. Ich theile Ihnen hier eine kleine Ode mit, die damals entstanden. [Inserted: Der Vesuv im December 1830] Ich wünsche sehr, daß ich diesen Brief nicht umsonst geschrieben, und daß er Sie noch in Paris trifft. Tot kann man Deutschland wohl nicht nennen; es entstehen überall Revolutionen. Diese helfen aber freilich nichts, da sie blos auf Constitutionen und nicht auf die Vereinigung Deutschlands ausgehen. Erst dann kann man an Constitutionen denken, wenn die Nation eine Nation ist. Ein Despot oder Eroberer wäre uns nöthiger, als Constitutionen. Dasselbe ist in Italien der Fall. Wollte Frankreich sich auf uneigennützige Art mit dem jungen und kriegerisch gesinnten König von Neapel verbinden, so würde es nicht schwer sein, die Fremden zu verjagen und Italien

        Manuscript on paper, in Latin. "De executiva et inspectiva ecclesiae potestatibus disputatio.

      [Rome? Folio (32 cm; 12.5"). [7] ff., 371 pp.. ca. 1831–44?] Gregory XVI (pope, 1831–46) was a fervent ultramontanist and so sought to strengthen the papal prerogatives and powers, and through them the religious and political authority of his papacy. This manuscript on the => executive and investigative powers of the Church, a topic dear to his heart, dovetails nicely with ultramontanism and was dedicated to him. Signed by Tagliaferri at the end of the dedication, it is written in a single easy-to-read hand on a single stock of high quality wove paper with a watermark bearing the date of 1822. => An extended text apparently unpublished, at least separately. Provenance: Gilt supra-libros of Pope Gregory XVI. Circa 1930 acquired by John Howell, bookseller in San Francisco, and added to his personal library (bookplate on front pastedown). He later sold it to the Pacific School of Religion (bookplate on front pastedown; stamps). Binding: Full vellum over boards, round spine, no raised bands; spine richly gilt using a variety of tools. Papal coat of arms in the center of each board. All edges gilt. Binding as above, spine darkened as are the boards, front joint expertly repaired; gilt faded but still attractive and "legible." Small stamp on a blank page and another in upper margin of the first page of the dedication; charge pocket on rear pastedown. => An impressively bound copy of an interesting and very nicely produced manuscript.

        [Op. 84]. Ouverture et Entr' Actes d'Egmont... Partition... Pr. 3 Thlr. [Full score]

      Leipsic: Breitkopf & Härtel [PN 5140], 1831. First Edition. CPM 4 p. 222. Hoboken 2, no. 371. New Kinsky I p. 533. Dorfmüller, p. 222. Egmont was first performed on June 15, 1810. "It had been decided to furnish Goethe';s Egmont with incidental music, and Beethoven was invited to supply it; he completed it by June 1810 and it was immediately performed. Apart from the excitement of the plot itself, in which Count Egmont foresees the liberation of the Netherlands from Spanish rule but dies as a result of his own brave stand, it is possible to suggest a deeper reason behind Beethoven';s heartfelt response to it: it may represent his own delayed reaction to the conquest and occupation of his adopted city by the French, and his hopes of being delivered from them." Joseph Kerman, Alan Tyson, and Scott G. Burnham in Grove Music Online.. Large octavo. Original publisher's dark yellow wrappers with titling within decorative border. 1f. (title), 164 pp. Title lithographed, music engraved. In a full custom-made modern black linen clamshell box with printed title label to spine. Previous owner's signature to upper outer corner of wrapper and title. Wrappers soiled with professional repairs to margins and spine. Minor foxing, heavier to some leaves; slight browning to blank margins; edges slightly dusty. Quite a good copy overall.

        Traité des exhumations juridiques, et considérations sur les changemens physiques que les cadavres éprouvent en se pourrissant dans la terre, dans l'eau, dans les fosses d'aisance et dans le fumier.

      Paris: Béchet jeune, 1831 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original drab yellow printed wrappers, uncut. Marginal paper flaw at pp. 340 and 366 in volume I. A remarkably well preserved set, with the publisher's 48-page catalogue (dated January 1833) at the end of volume I. 4 handcoloured lithograph plates of cadavers by Lemercier or Cheyère after Jacques Hippolyte van der Burch, 1 plain plate of air pumps used to draw off noxious vapours from the grave, folding letterpress table of forensic details on skeletons. First edition of "the first book to be devoted solely to the subject of exhumation and decomposition" (Visible Proofs: Forensic Views of the Body at US National Library of Medicine online). "Orfila [1787-1853], pioneer toxicologist, was the leading medico-legal expert of his time. He was born in Minorca, studied at Valencia Barcelona, and Paris, and was one of the founders of the Académie de Médicine. He was a popular teacher, and is particuloarly remembered for his writings on toxicology" (Garrison & Morton 2072). His Traité des poisons (Paris, 1814-15) - "a classic in its field" (Heirs of Hippocrates) - was published in Britain, America, Germany and Spain. Traité des exhumations juridiques, in which Orfila collaborated with Octave Lesueur (1802-1860), a fellow doctor at the Faculté de Médecine de Paris, is a detailed medico-legal treatise describing - and graphically illustrating - the processes of human decomposition and physical change that occurs in bodies in the ground, in water, exposed to the air and fumigation. In literature, Lafcadio Hearn mentions it in his ghost story "Nightmare-Touch" (first published in his collection entitled Shadowings, London 1900), where the hero relates that "the frightful plates in Orfila's Traité des exhumes, beheld for the first time, recalled to me with a sickening start the dream-terrors of childhood". Decidedly uncommon in commerce and thinly represented in British and Irish institutional libraries: Copac cites only six locations (BL, Royal Society, Glasgow, Oxford, Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh), reasonably well represented on OCLC. A superb copy in the original wrappers. Heirs of Hippocrates online 1434; not in Garrison & Morton or Bibliotheca Walleriana. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Cook's Oracle;

      [New York:] by J. & J. Harper,, 1831. and Housekeeper's Manual. Containing receipts for cookery, and directions for carving. Also, the art of composing the most simple and most highly finished broths, gravies, soups, sauces, store sauces, and flavouring essences; pastry preservers, puddings, pickles, etc. With a complete system of cookery for Catholic families. The quantity of each article is accurately stated by weight and measure; being the result of actual experiments instituted in the kitchen of William Kitchiner. Adapted to the American public by a medical gentleman. From the last London edition. Octavo (178 x 104 mm). Contemporary sprinkled sheep, smooth spine gilt-ruled in compartments, red skiver letterpiece to second, edges speckled red. 11 line-drawings to the text in the chapter on carving. Very lightly rubbed overall, spine rolled, a few lightly pencilled ownership contemporary ownership inscriptions and recipes to preliminary blanks, light toning, very occasional mild foxing, sigs. A and T4-8 starting with the latter slightly proud. A very good copy. Expanded edition of the most famous of Kitchiner's cookery books, "an acknowledged source of inspiration for Mrs Beeton, and mined by the writers of other household guides" (ODNB). First published in London in 1817, The Cook's Oracle "was written in a down-to-earth style, and demonstrated Kitchiner's familiarity with the entire process, from shopping, through preparing and serving the dishes, to cleaning up" (idem). Kitchiner also styled himself MD, falsely claiming a medical degree from Glasgow; his friend William Jerdan once commented: 'His medical and gastronomical practices were wonderfully combined, insomuch that his guests could not tell whether what was set before them was a meal or a prescription' (Jerdan, 282?7). "Numerous notices, in commendation of the work, might be selected from respectable European journals; but the mere fact, that within twelve years, seventy thousand copies of it have been purchased by the English public, is sufficient evidence of its reception and merits" (publisher's advertisement). A well-preserved copy in a pleasingly unsophisticated contemporary binding.

His Traité des poisons (Paris, 1814-15) - "a classic in its field" (Heirs of Hippocrates) - was published in Britain, America, Germany and Spain. Traité des exhumations juridiques, in which Orfila collaborated with Octave Lesueur (1802-1860), a fellow doctor at the Faculté de Médecine de Paris, is a detailed medico-legal treatise describing - and graphically illustrating - the processes of human decomposition and physical change that occurs in bodies in the ground, in water, exposed to the air and fumigation. In literature, Lafcadio Hearn mentions it in his ghost story "Nightmare-Touch" (first published in his collection entitled Shadowings, London 1900), where the hero relates that "the frightful plates in Orfila's Traité des exhumes, beheld for the first time, recalled to me with a sickening start the dream-terrors of childhood". Decidedly uncommon in commerce and thinly represented in British and Irish institutional libraries: Copac cites only six locations (BL, Royal Society, Glasgow, Oxford, Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh), reasonably well represented on OCLC. A stunning copy in the original wrappers.

      1831 - Stockholm, L. J. Hjerta, 1831. 8:o. 48 pp. Contemporary grey paper wrappers, worn and stained. Stain in lower inner corner on front cover and title. Stitching somewhat loose. Small trace of bookseller's ticket of G. L. Tullstorp on inside of rear cover. A second enlarged edition was published in 1833. The ideas of Saint-Simon had been introduced in Sweden by W. F. Dalman, Gustaf Hierta and Pär Götrek and a translation presenting the ideas of saintsimonianism had been published in the literary journal "Mimer" in 1830. The present work, which is based on Bazard's lectures on saintsimonianism, contains a biography of Saint-Simon and a list of appropriate French works on his teachings, among other things. Pär Götrek (1798-1876) was a bookseller in Stockholm and one of the driving forces behind Skandinaviska sällskapet [The Scandinavian Society], an association of utopian socialists in the same city. He is perhaps best known as the publisher of the first Swedish edition of "The Communist Manifesto". [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Manuscript Deeds - Vellum Indentures on Franklin's Estate

      Philadelphia, 1831. Philadelphia, 1831-1848. Four manuscript indentures on vellum, dealing with land titles owned and sold by the descendants of Benjamin Franklin, being properties and homes within Franklin Court. Dated 1831, 1836, 1846, and 1848, two of the documents pertain to a home constructed for Benjamin Franklin circa 1786 as a revenue property and situated on the south side of High Street [now Market Street], while the other two describe a home on a much smaller parcel of land on the portion of the courtyard that had been subdivided in 1812, evidently neighboring the aforementioned property. Documents range in size, the smallest measuring approximately 60 x 38 cm, and the largest 44 x 72 cm, and feature notable signatures, clerical annotations to verso, original red wax seals and paper seals. Mildly age-toning, otherwise in very good condition, beautifully preserved, significant and scarce documents in fine colonial hands. A history of heirs, owners and lessees of Benjamin Franklin's properties in Franklin Court, Philadelphia, is presented in original manuscript documents, and reveals the desirability and prestige associated with the address. Attracting the most reputable jewelers, a railroad magnate, a sugar plantation owner and cotton producer, a leading brewer, a victualler, a manufacturer of umbrellas, and a High Sheriff of the city. Two of the deeds are signed by Philadelphia aldermen. The earliest indenture is dated 9 July 1831, and is a lease agreement for a house and lot situated in what is now known as Franklin Court, and most likely constructed by Benjamin Franklin in 1786 as a revenue property. In 1820 it was inherited by Commodore Benjamin Franklin Bache (1801-1881), great grandson of America's founding father Benjamin Franklin, and nephew of famous journalist Benjamin Franklin Bache (1769-1798) after whom he was named. Herein, Benjamin Franklin Bache grants use of the property to respected Philadelphia jewelers and silversmiths, the Thibault brothers. The brothers' parents having immigrated from France to the West Indies, then to Philadelphia during the rebellion in Saint Dominigue, Francis (born 1787), Frederick (born in 1788), and Felix(born in 1791) learned the trade from their father. In the 1830s there were numerous jewelers and silversmiths operating within Franklin Court. This document reveals that the home was situated within the same city block as Benjamin Franklin's own home, and may very well be one of the three homes built by him in 1786. "Franklin Court" as the property is known today, was the site of an exquisite home built between 1763-65 for Benjamin Franklin, and where his wife and daughter lived while he served in England as an agent representing several colonies. Franklin resided at the house in 1775-76, went abroad as a diplomat in France, finally settling at the house for the final years of his life, from 1785-90. The Franklin house was demolished by his son-in-law in 1812. Only the foundation remains today as its walls were collapsed into the building's cellar, and subsequently, a roadway was constructed on top of it all, sealing the house ruins and all of its contents. To ascertain the precise location of the home, and any surviving remains, the site was excavated in several phases beginning in 1953. In his final years, between 1786-1787, Franklin commissioned the construction of 3 new brick houses on Market Street; one was to replace his home; one was to rent to tenants, the third possibly also a rental. The home described in the present lease indenture is quite conceivably that which was built in 1786 by Benjamin Franklin as a rental property, and which today forms an archaeological exhibit called "Fragments of Franklin Court". It has been ascertained to have been a rental property where a prosperous merchant kept shop, and lived with his family, that the house was 3 stories high, covered 33 feet square, and included 10 rooms. The present document also describes a brick house of three stories, which is being rented to successful silversmiths. Although Benjamin Franklin's home was demolished in 1812, this building may have survived as late as 1955, when further archaeological research required the demolitions of extant properties. The courtyard sits between Market and Chestnut Streets, and 3rd and 4th Streets, exactly as described in this vellum deed. It can still be entered via the original brick passageway on Market Street, or, through the gates and up the cobblestone path from Chestnut Street. [Market Street was formerly called High Street as seen in these deeds.] The lessor, Benjamin Franklin Bache (1801-1881) was born in Franklin, Albemarle, Virginia, and died in Brooklyn, New York. He was a surgeon in the United States Navy before and during the Civil War. He was a great-grandson of the Revolutionary War statesman and author, Benjamin Franklin Bache (1769-1798). He married Anna Cambridge Lawson (1798-1876), who was born and died in Philadelphia. His Father is William Bache (1773-1820) of Philadelphia, and his mother is Catherine Bache (1770-1820), both of whom are named in these documents. His uncle is Benjamin F. Bache, I, (1769-1798) the famous Philadelphia journalist. His grandfather is Richard Bache, Sr. (1737-1811), 2nd US Postmaster General, born in Yorkshire and died in Philadelphia. His grandmother is Sarah "Sally" Bache (née Franklin) (1743-1808), the daughter of Benjamin Franklin, which means his paternal great-grandfather was Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) who signed the United States "Declaration of Independence." Excerpts from the lease indenture dated 9 July 1831: "This indenture... between Benjamin Franklin Bache of Penscola Florida... and Anna his wife... Frederick Thibault and Felix Thibault... merchants... " "... in consideration of the sum of One Thousand Dollars lawful money of the United States..." "... Three Story Brick Messuage and Lot of Ground Situate on the West side of Franklin Place between High and Chestnut Streets and Delaware Third and Fourth Streets in the City of Philadelphia, Beginning at the distance of one hundred and twenty-eight feet and six inches from the South Side of High Street, thence extending Northwardly Seventeen feet and six inches, thence Westwardly to Seth Craig's Ground fourteen feet and two inches, thence Southwardly along said Craig's ground seventeen feet and six inches, and thence Eastwardly fourteen feet and two inches to the beginning..." "Being the same premises which William Bache and wife by Deed of May 22. 1812.... to convey as the survivor of the said William Bache [Benjamin Franklin's grandson] and his wife... Catherine, who survived her said husband, did by her will dated June 28. 1820... conveyed the same to the said Benjamin F. Bache..." "... To have and to hold the said Messuage and Lot of Ground... Frederick Thibault and Felix Thibault... as Tenants in Common." End excerpts. Pertaining to the same property and three story brick home, a second an equally interesting indenture dated 18 March 1848 again mentions the Bache family and transfers the title from Jacob and Mary Hart, to a successful brewer George Butz. He in turn endorses the deed for $1 to John Wright, an umbrella manufacturer. George Butz (1809-1883) of the Northern Liberties district in Philadelphia was a prominent brewer, in fact one of the two earliest brewers in Brewerytown, both of whom partnered in 1843 to form "Dithmar and Butz". [Frederick had established a brewery in 1835, Butz becoming his partner in 1843. By 1860 they produced some ten thousand barrells of porter and ale, subsequently opening a second brewery, which they sold in 1865.] There was also a George Butz Brewery opened in 1863 and closed in 1866. In 1833 George married Eliza Levan. This document bears several notable signatures. The original signature of brewer George Butz next to a red wax seal. Philadelphia alderman Chauncey Bulkley (1798-1860) signed the document in 3 places, and alderman George Erety Jr. (1806-1867) twice. [As well as his public service, Chauncey Bulkley is remembered for his service as Secretary and Treasurer of the Germantown and Norristown Railroad Co. from 1832-1833. George Erety was a prominent politician and attorney, President of the Board of Guardians of the Poor, and also associated with the Franklin Institute and the Jefferson Fire Insurance Company.] The following two indentures reflect the redevelopment of Franklin's courtyard into an income-producing property, which took place in 1812. This property and home is described as being bounded by Lot No. 24 on one side, and Lot No. 26 on the other. The 1836 document names America's founding father Benjamin Franklin in reference to a home and property initially owned by him, situated on a section of land on the west side of Franklin Court which had been divided by his descendants, this portion owned by Louis Bache [Benjamin Franklin's grandson] who died intestate. It represents the sale of the property, which included "a certain three story brick messuage and lot or piece of ground.... [with]... the common use and privilege of Franklin Court..." The lot [No. 25] measured fourteen feet seven inches by thirty-eight feet eleven inches, and was adjacent to a lot formerly owned by his brother William Bache who was also deceased by this time. This property was sold by auction for the payment of debts, the auction being held at the historic Merchants Coffee House on 1 November 1833, fetching $3,550. The purchaser was a victualler named Charles L. Cope. This document is signed by Philadelphia alderman and US marshall John Conrad. Colonel Louis Bache (1779-1819) was born in. Very Good.

The rare first edition of "a classic treatise on mid-European avifauna" (Wood 255). "In Folge eingehendster Specialkenntniss (erfuhr) die Grundlage des Systems, der Begriff der Art, eine Erweiterung insofern B. die Art schon als eine höhere systematische Gruppe fasste und die übereinstimmenden Individuen als Subspecies vereinigte." (Carus 710). "In this handbook, Brehm's chief work, the author gives his opinion on the system of Linnaeus, which is rejected as being too unnatural. The birds are divided into 23 orders which are again subdivided into genera, 'species', and 'subspecies' (Gattungen), by which the author understands birds resembling each other and mating with each other; whereas birds belonging to the same 'species' certainly bear a great resemblance to each other in most respects, but do not regularly mate with each other. Thus he went a step further than any other contemporary ornithologist in the division of birds into species" (Anker 66). The fine plates are after drawings by Bädeker and Th. Götz and engraved by W. Müller.//Nissen IVB, 140; Anker 105; Zimmer I, 90.

The present issue is a vehement appeal to all Portuguese to follow the lead of D. Pedro, the Duke of Bragança (formerly D. Pedro IV, King of Portugal, and before that D. Pedro I, Emperor of Brazil) against his brother the absolutist D. Miguel. It documents the gathering of troops in the Açores under the Conde de Vila Flor and gives a list of officers who had been taken prisoner, as well as a breakdown of the numbers of soldiers of various types (artillery of the line, caçadores, infantry, etc.) taken prisoner (1277) and of the "Força da columna expedicionaria constitucional" (1500).Canto refers to the present issue as the first, followed by the one of 4 October (paginated 9-12) and one of 11 October (paginated 13-16).The Visconde de Almeida Garrett (1799-1854) was a man of great talent and far-reaching interests: "As journalist, founder and editor of several short-lived newspapers, as a stylist and master of prose, his country's chief lyric poet in the first half of the nineteenth century . and greatest dramatist since the sixteenth; as politician and one of the most eloquent of all Portugal's orators, an enthusiastic if unscientific folk-lorist, a novelist, critic, diplomatist, soldier, jurist and judge, Almeida Garrett played many parts and with success" (Bell, @Portuguese Literature pp. 288-89).*** Canto, @Ensaio bibliograhico: catalogo das obras nacionaes e estrangeiras relativas aos successos politicos de Portugal nos annos de 1828 a 1834 (1892), p. 292. Conefrey, @Jornais, séries e periódicos portugueses 1826-1834, 174: taking his information on the issues of 4 and 11 October from Canto, because he had not seen them; "A BNL não tem esta raríssima publicação." This issue not in Rafael & Santos, @Jornais e revistas portugueses do século XIX, which cites a single copy of an issue of 4 October 1831 ONLY, in the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal. Universidade de Coimbra, @Publicações periódicas portuguesas 1760: listing all 3 issues (27 September, 4 and 11 October 1831). Not in Fonseca, @Pseudónimos. See Innocêncio, XVII, 304, and XVIII, 10, both giving the title of this periodical, with the place and date of London, 1831, but without any additional information, and giving identical cross references to the articles on Almeida Garrett in III, 309, and X, 180; however, we have not been able to locate anything pertaining to the present work in those places. This issue not in Porbase, which cites the same issue as Rafael & Santos ONLY in a single copy in the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal. Not located in Copac. [Attributes: First Edition]

A few light fox marks at the very front and rear of the text, else internally fresh. Famous Louisiana Rarity and Key Source An exceedingly rare account of the Louisiana Purchase and its transfer to American control, written by the French colonial prefect for Louisiana, and privately printed for his family. Pierre-Clément de Laussat formally received the Louisiana Territory from Spain on Nov. 30, 1803, and transferred it to the American commissioners, William C.C. Claiborne and Gen. James Wilkinson, on Dec. 20. Laussat also supervised the transfer of the Spanish colonial archives to Spain and to American officials. This is Laussat's own account of his experiences in Louisiana from March 1803 to April 1804, comprising nearly a third of the text. In the rest of the volume he describes his duties in Martinique and French Guyana. Beers asserts that 100 copies were privately printed for Laussat. Howes locates only the Yale copy, and Monaghan finds a single copy only, at the Bibliotheque Municipale in Pau, in the Pyrenees region of southern France, where the book was printed. OCLC also notes copies at the Historic New Orleans Collection, the New Orleans Public Library, and Tulane. "This is one of the rarest items of Americana in the nineteenth century" - Monaghan. An exceptionally desirable first-hand account of the Louisiana Purchase by the highest French authority serving in the region, in original condition.

        JOURNAL OF A CRUISE OF THE UNITED STATES SCHOONER DOLPHIN, AMONG THE ISLANDS OF THE PACIFIC OCEAN; AND A VISIT TO THE MULGRAVE ISLANDS, IN PURSUIT OF THE MUTINEERS OF THE WHALE SHIP GLOBE. WITH A MAP.

      New York. 1831. - 258pp. plus folding frontispiece map. Modern three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt with leather label. Map backed on linen, glued to front pastedown. Small portion of lower corner of p.141 torn away, affecting four lines of text. Lightly foxed. Good plus. A very scarce and important Pacific narrative, this is the account of the voyage of the Dolphin, a United States Navy schooner, which set out from Peru in August 1825 in search of the crew of the whaleship Globe, which had mutinied in the Pacific the year before. During their search the ship visited the Galapagos Islands, the Marquesas, and the Gilberts, before finding two survivors of the mutiny, William Lay and Cyrus Hussey, on the Mulgraves (now known as Milli Atoll), the rest of the crew having been murdered aboard ship, escaped to South America, or killed by natives. Paulding, the first officer of the Dolphin, recounts the details of his bold rescue of Lay and Hussey from the natives, and also describes the bloody mutiny. The Dolphin then sailed on to Hawaii, becoming the first American naval vessel to enter Honolulu harbor. They stayed there four months, and Paulding includes a description of the natives and their leaders, the activities of missionaries and European entrepreneurs, and Honolulu and its surroundings. The frontispiece is a map of the Mulgrave Islands. HILL 1319. HOWES P131, "aa." SABIN 59186. AMERICAN IMPRINTS 8637. FORBES 795. CARTER, p.139. FORSTER 80. JUDD & LIND 142. HUNTRESS 247C.
