         Notes on Chinese mediaeval travellers to the west.Shanghai, American Presbyterian Mission Press; London, Trübner and Co., 1875. 8vo. With numerous Chinese characters and 3 wood-engraved illustrations in text. Contemporary blind- and gold-blocked cloth.

      - Cordier, Sinica, col. 2667; Couling, p. 64. First separately published edition of a work on Chinese travellers from the 13th century, by the Baltic physician and sinologist Emil Bretschneider (1833-1901). "His writings both on botany and geography are extremely valuable" (Couling). The book is divided into four chapters, each devoted to a different Chinese traveller or voyage to the west. Bretschneider starts each chapter with a brief introduction, followed by a translation of Chinese sources including many Chinese characters. The first chapter describes the travels the Taoist monk Qiu Chuji (1148-1227) to Persia and India in the years 1221-1224 to meet the Mongol Khan. The second chapter narrates the journey of a Mongol embassy to western Asia, and chapter three is an "account of Western countries", written by an envoy of the Chinese Jin dynasty around 1220. He describes the customs and culture of the "Mohameddans" he meets in the west, probably describing the city Herat in Afghanistan. The last chapter describes the travels of the Khitan statesman Yelü Chucai, who served Genghis Khan, to present-day Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.Presentation copy, with a note by the author to "V. Gauvain" in ink on first flyleaf. Title-page with some faint water stains, otherwise in very good condition.

         Kiyoko zuga [= Representation of Nagasaki harbour].[Nagasaki, ca. 1880?]. A large watercolour painting of Nagasaki harbour (image size: 49.5 x 87.5 cm), probably on mulberry bark paper, with one large Asian ship, more than a dozen small Asian boats, and a steam boat in the background, all rendered following Western conventions of perspective. In a passe-partout in a modern wooden frame painted gold (95 x 125 cm), behind glass.

      A large watercolour painting from the Meiji period showing Nagasaki harbour viewed from the city, looking across at the Papenburg (Dutch for Pope's mountain), named for the many Catholic martyrs who were thrown off the peak. A large Asian ship in the harbour (15.5 cm tall in the painting) forms a focal point in the painting, while the masts of another appear in the foreground at left. Several more Asian sailing ships appear far in the background and there are many small rowboats in the foreground and background. Of special interest is a steamboat sailing into the harbour in the background left, with two smokestacks.Ochiai Yoshiiku (1833-1904) belonged to the group of woodcut artists known as the Utagawa school, and is therefore also known as Utagawa Yoshiiku. He studied with Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1798-1861), who had studied with Tokokuni I (1769-1825), who took charge of the group when its founder, his teacher Utagawa Toyoharu (1735-1814), died. The Utagawa school is known for mixing Western traditions, especially Western perspective, into traditional Japanese styles. While most of Ochiai's work remained faithful to the traditional manner, the present painting shows a nearly pure Western perspective. This combined with the fact that his name also appears transliterated in the Latin alphabet may mean this painting was made for a European patron.With a few wrinkles in the paper slightly affecting the mountain at the right, the sky near it and the sail of the large ship, but otherwise in fine condition. A lovely and unusually large Japanese watercolour painting, showing Nagasaki harbour with many ships and boats.

         A collection of three plays by Victor Hugo, including "Lucrèce Borgia", enriched with additional collector's pieces, including a letter signed by Lucrezia Borgia, an autograph musical manuscript by Donizetti, and an original drawing by Victor Hugo.

      Paris, Eugène Renduel, 1832-1833. - I) Lucrèce Borgia. 1833. (2), XI, (1), 192 pp. II) Le Roi s'amuse. 1832. (8), XXIII, (1), 183 pp. III) Marie Tudor. 1833. (6), IV, 214 pp. Each with frontispiece. All three bound in a single volume in slightly later half calf with giltstamped spine and marbled covers. A matching second volume contains: 1) Borgia, Lucrezia (1480-1519). Letter signed. Rome, 20 Nov. 1501. ½ p. Folio. 2) Hugo, Victor (1802-1885). Autograph ink caricature, mounted on backing paper. 10 x 13 cm. 3) Mocquard, Jean-François (1791-1864). Autograph letter signed. Paris, 15 Jan. 1853. 1 p. 8vo. 4) Fournier, Louis Edouard (1857-1917). Autograph drawing inscribed. 12.5 x 20.5 cm. 5) Donizetti, Gaetano (1797-1848). Autograph musical manuscript (fragment). 6 pp., ca. 33 x 12 cm. 6) Hugo, Victor (1802-1885). Two autograph instructions signed. 26 Dec. 1839 and 20 Feb. (no year). Oblong 8vo. 2 pp. Both volumes stored together in a matching calf-entry marbled slipcase. A charming ensemble of three first editions of Victor Hugo's plays, each one inscribed by the author to his elder brother, the essayist and military writer Abel Hugo (1798-1855). When the set was auctioned at the sale of the library of the author's grandson Georges-Victor Hugo, it was acquired by Arthur Meyer, the director of the prestigious daily "Le Gaulois" and a passionate collector who was wont to enrich, or "truffle", his books with appropriate rare autographs and drawings. In this case, the addenda, bound in a matching half-calf volume, greatly surpass in value the works they accompany: 1) A precious letter by the Renaissance noblewoman Lucrezia Borgia, famous for her marriages and her affair with Pietro Bembo (signed "Lucretia Esteri de Borgia"), written in recommendation of Hector Beringero to the poet Antonio Tebaldeo (1463-1537), secretary to Francesco II Gonzaga, Marquess of Mantua (later Lucrezia's lover). Meyer had acquired this outstanding document from the collection of Alfred Morrison (cf. Catalogue of the Collection of Autograph Letters and Historical Documents Formed Between 1865 and 1882 by Alfred Morrison, 1883, p. 100). - 2) Almost equally striking is the original, highly expressive pen-and-ink drawing by Victor Hugo, showing the dark shape of a portly figure holding a candle (an illustration of Act III, Scene 1 of his 1843 play "Les Burgraves"), captioned by the artist in his own hand: "Mm. Mélingue criant: Caïn! de la Coulisse". In the original production, the actress Rosaline Mélingue had played the role of Guanhumara, providing the off-stage voice for the eerie scene. - 3) Also included is a letter by J.-F. Mocquard, chief-of-staff to Napoleon III, addressed to Auguste Romieu, the directeur des beaux-arts, concerning matters of theatrical censorship (including Hugo's play "Lucrèce Borgia"). 4) The associations are reinforced in an expressive charcoal drawing showing Victor Hugo reading to his brother Abel the first act of "Lucrèce Borgia", inscribed in pencil to the collector by the artist L. E. Fournier: "A M. Arthur Meyer très cordialement". 5) Finally, Meyer was able to include a fragment of Gaetano Donizetti's original manuscript of his 1833 opera "Lucrezia Borgia", which he had based on Hugo's play. 6) At the very end are two brief notes by Victor Hugo in which the author instructs his publisher Renduel to issue to the bearer copies of his works, including "Lucrèce Borgia". - Provenance: bookplates of Arthur Meyer and Jean Inglessi, as well as an additional monogrammed bookplate. Last in the collection of Pierre Bergé (1930-2017). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

         Illuminated Ornaments selected from the Manuscripts and early printed books from the sixth to the seventeenth centuries.

      London: William Pickering (printed by Charles Whittingham), 1833. Imperial 4to on largest paper (38 x 27.5 cms.), lithographed titlepage heightened with hand coloring, printed titlepage, 18 pp. of text; 40 leaves of descriptions between 59 magnificent etched or lithographed plates heightened with printed and hand-coloring, 4 of the early plates with a highly burnished background of gold leaf; and many other plates illuminated with liquid gold, 1 addendum leaf. A very fresh copy, in its most desirable format, of a truly rare book in any of its three formats (uncolored, colored, hand-colored and illuminated with gold). Contemporary full brown polished calf beautifully rebacked, covers panelled in gilt, gilt edges, armorial bookplate of Nevile Rodwell Wilkinson. A superb copy with Robin de Beaumont’s original description and price retained at the front. First edition, largest paper format, of Shaw’s first book with color plates (his third book overall); regular copies measure 28 x 21 cms (approximately) and have less finished coloring and the gold areas are printed in yellow. The work was issued in 12 monthly parts each containing 5 plates; it began in June 1830 and was issued at 3s 6d plain, 7s 6d colored, “and a very limited number will be printed in Imperial Quarto, and the ornaments more highly finished in opaque colors heightened with gold, at 15s each part.” (prospectus).“In the large-paper copies, one can only say that the results are hardly less beautiful than the mediaeval originals; they are hand-illuminated with the utmost skill, and the gold used is gold leaf… this does make a considerable difference.” (McLean). Ing quotes Hardie p.259: “With their careful selection of pigments and their faithful colouring, Shaw’s reproductions attain almost to the brilliancy of an original manuscript.” In all, an extraordinary book, described by A.N.L. Munby as “the most sensible and coherent essay about miniature painting at the time” and endorsing its continuing usefulness. In the same vein, Beckwith comments: “the first of many British 19th-century studies of illuminated manuscripts… such books opened the public’s eyes to the aesthetic and historical value of manuscript arts… the format was a model for 19th-century studies of the history and methods of illumination… a landmark in the diffusion of information about manuscript arts and their history and made a significant contribution to Victorian bibliomania.” This may in fact be the very first book on illumination and its history to have color plates, and can certainly be said to have had a profound influence on early Victorian taste in and appreciation of illuminated manuscripts. Abbey, Life, 234. Keynes p. 89. McLean, Victorian Book Design, p.65-66. Warren p. 155. Ing, Charles Whittingham Printer, 9: “Magnificent large paper copy with gold leaf.” Friedman, Color Printing in England, 39 and illus. Beckwith, Victorian Bibliomania, 14. This copy purchased from Robin de Beaumont in 2003 and sold; repurchased in 2017. Nevile Rodwell Wilkinson was the Ulster King of Arms, the Principal Herald of all Ireland, and the Registrar of the Most Illustrious Order of Saint Patrick. His biography is extraordinary both as a very distinguished soldier and as an artist who created “ Titania's Palace. This chef-d'œuvre en miniature, completed over some eighteen years, was unique in being neither a luxurious dolls' house nor a model of an existing or possible future structure. It covered a space of 63 square feet, and was finished in every conceivable detail. Wilkinson developed, with the aid of an etchers' glass, a technique for decoration he called ‘mosaic painting’: minute dots of watercolour, irregular in shape like mosaic tesserae, about 1000 to the square inch. The palace was opened in 1923 by Queen Mary and was much admired by the public. It was exhibited not only in the United Kingdom but also in the Netherlands, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand, raising thousands of pounds for children's charities: the raison d'être of the entire exercise.” (DNB)

         A History of the Valley of Virginia

      Winchester: Samuel Davis, 1833. First Edition. Hardcover. Still one of the best histories of the early settlement of the Shenandoah Valley, though as Streeter notes the second and third sections of the book are simply reprints of earlier works, including Doddridge's Notes on the Settlement and Indian Wars (1824). However, Kercheval's original contributions are valuable; according to Streeter "...he was assiduous in interviewing the old timers and has assembled a large body of fact and tradition." Reprinted numerous times through the first half of the 20th century, the first edition has long been a sought-after rarity. This a tastefully restored copy, and as nice a copy as we have handled. STREETER 1336 (making $75). HOWES K104(aa). 12mo. 20th-century full calf, bound to style with early morocco spine label laid on; i-xlvi; 49-486pp; subscriber's list included. Margins of six text leaves have been professionally conserved (nowhere approaching text); scattered light foxing and age-toning, but overall a fresh, well-preserved copy of the uncommon first edition.

Declaration of Independence. From the American Archives. [Washington, D.C.: ìW. J. STONE SC WASHnî William Stone for Peter Force, c.a. 1833].The Peter Force Edition of the "Declaration of Independence." Originally found in Force's America Archives. Large folio broadside (28 7/8 x 25 1/2 inches; 732 x 650 mm) Rice paper. Printed in black ink on recto only. This is often found with a very tight margin on at least one side, as it was bound into the book, but present copy has large margins on all four sides, never touching the text. Sheet with folds, consistent with having been issued in the Force American Archives Fifth Series, volume I. Some minor, nearly invisible repairs to closed tears in some of the creases, with no loss of text. Housed flat in a mylar sleeve. Overall an about fine copy.Less than 50 years after the original draft of the Declaration, the document was beginning to degrade. One theory as to why was based on the fact that press copies were being made of it. "This 'wet transfer' method may have been used by William J. Stone when in 1820 he was commissioned by Secretary of State John Quincy Adams to make a facsimile of the entire Declaration, signatures as well as text. By June 5, 1823, almost exactly 47 years after Jefferson's first draft of the Declaration, the (Washington) National Intelligencer was able to report 'that Mr. William J. Stone, a respectable and enterprising Engraver of this City, has, after a labor of three years, completed a facsimile of the original of the Declaration of Independence, now in the archives of the government; that it is executed with the greatest exactness and fidelity; and that the Department of State has become the purchaser of the plate.' As the Intelligencer went on to observe: 'We are very glad to hear this, for the original of that paper which ought to be immortal and imperishable, by being so much handled by copyists and curious visitors, might receive serious injury. The facility of multiplying copies of it now possessed by the Department of State will render further exposure of the original unnecessary.' The language of the newspaper report, like that of Rush's earlier comment, would seem to indicate some fear of the deterioration of the Declaration even prior to Stone's work. The copies made from Stone's copperplate established the clear visual image of the Declaration for generations of Americans. The 200 official parchment copies struck from the Stone plate carry the identification "Engraved by W. J. Stone for the Department of State, by order" in the upper left corner followed by "of J. Q. Adams, Sec. of State July 4th 1823." in the upper right corner. (From the National Archives)Peter Force who was a historian and printer was commissioned by congress in 1833 to compile a work which would be known as the "American Archives" and would include government documents, records and correspondence pertaining to the history of the Colonies of North America. At the time of the Archives commission, the State Department signed a contract for 1,500 copies to be made of the Declaration from the Stone copperplate, and to be inserted into the American Archives, Fifth Series Volume I. At some point after Stone's original 200 copies, his imprint at top was removed, and replaced with the shorter imprint on he bottom left, ìW. J. STONE SC WASHn,î as seen on our present copy. Although the original contract was for 1,500 copies of the Declaration, the subscriber list for the "Archives"did not meet its goal, so the actual number of copies printed is not known, however it is probably somewhere between 500-1,500.Howes.

         THE SAVAGE. By Piomingo, a Headman and Warrior of the Muscogulgee Nation

      Knoxville: Republished at the "Scrap Book" Office, 1833. 324pp. Original sheep. Spine chipped and worn, hinges cracked, front board nearly detached, foxing throughout. Withal in decent condition. In a cloth case, leather label. Robinson's essays are written in the guise of the thoughts and debates of a Creek sage named Piomingo. Much of the text consists of arguments between whites and Piomingo over differing philosophies, making this a fascinating view of the Noble Savage and a satire on contemporary mores. First published in Philadelphia in 1810, it was evidently popular enough to go through several editions, of which this frontier-ish printing in Knoxville, at the time of Indian removal, is both exotic and notable.

         Massachusetts

      1833 - 1840. In accordance with a Massachusetts law passed on January 22, 1776 Section 23 claiming that each Brigadier General of the colony should provide two field forces. The men were often selected from two separate regiments. This manuscript with over 110 pp details the elections of the field officers as well as military officials tried for indiscretions. The items date from 1833 to 1840 with varying headquarters based in New Bedford, Wareham, Fall River, Boston and Pawtucket. Some of the excerpts read: "October 18, 1833 "The committee on Military Affairs, to whom was referred an application for authority to raise a volunteer Company of riflemen in New Bedford, report - that said application is signed by forty five individuals representing that they are mechanics and citizens of New Bedford that there is no independent Company of Infantry or riflemen in that town and that in the present state of the military companies in that place, the service would be greatly benefited by the organization of a company of Riflemen. This representation having been accompanied with a communication from James D. Thompson who is Brigadier General of the second brigade, fifth division, which although not in the form of an official certificate my nevertheless be considered as an approval of the object of the petitioners, and his Excellency the commander in Chief having been lately advised to disband the company of Cavalry in Norton, the committee recommend that authority be granted for raising said company of riflemen by voluntary enlistment to be annex'd to the Fourth Regiment second Brigade , fifth division and to be recruited within the limits of said Regiment, provided that said company shall not be organized until forty five persons shall be enrolled for that purpose . . . " "August 7, 1834 reads, "The Brigadier General, very much regrets that a return should have been received by him under the sanction of the name of so able an officer as Col. Stone so very imperfect and incorrect as that received from the 4th Regiment in June last; and cannot but hope it never passed his inspection, notwithstanding his name is attached thereto - The charges are first that as much of the artillery as is returned as al, is incorporated with the infantry, which is not the place for it, a special return having been provided and sent for that purpose. Second, all the return that is made of the artillery is simply the, men composing the company and their knapsacks nothing is said of their arms and equipments, their guns . . . brag ropes - Bricoles - Harnesses and the only way the Brig Major could make his return was from yours of last year . . . Thus sir I have endeavored to lay before you the imperfections in the return rec'd from your regiment; and when you recollect the importance attached to these returns, you will undoubtedly see the necessity of having them entirely correct and that you will be vigilant, to see that such another return may never . . . from any officer under our command. By order of the Brig. Gen'l 2'd Brig. And 5th Division. J.H. Collins Brig. Major." "January 26, 1836 General Orders: At a general court martial held at Dedham on the 6th Inst. Of which Brig, Gen'l . . . Oldham of the first Brigade and fifth divisions is President was tried Major John P. Jones commander of a Battalion of Light Infantry in he second Brigade first Div. Of the militia on a complaint exhibited against him for Breach of Duty by Brigadier Gen'l Amos H. Boyd of the same Brigade. The court having considered the charge and the several specifications under it, is of the opinion and decides that the said Maj. John P. Jones is guilty of the first specification except the words "being instigated by motives of hatred and ill will towards the several individuals so elected" and also he words "with malice" that the said Major John P. Jones is guilty of the second specifications except that words being actuated by motives of malice and ill will against the said Mowny, Blake and Hawes also the word malicious and also the words, "the said rifle company has been during the time aforesaid without any commissioned officers." . . . And the court sentenced the said Maj. John P. Jones to be removed from office and do adjudge him to be disqualified for and incapable of holding any military office under this commonwealth for ten years and the court do further sentence the said Maj. John P. Jones to pay a fine of one hundred dollars." "Headquarters of Boston, July 9, 1839 General Orders, A resonance against the election held in New Bedford on the 30th of March for the choice of Field officers in the 2nd Reg't and 2 Brig. And 5 division, having been received with a statement from the Major General , confirming the representation contained therein, the commander in chief after a careful examination of the circumstances, considers the election to have been so irregularly conducted as to make it necessary to set the proceedings aside, which is accordingly done, and a new election ordered . . ." Some of the many names you will see inside are George A. Bourne, Lieutenant Charles White, Capt. E.G. Perkins and many more. Perfect for archival research. The front cover of the book is separated.

         History of Huming Birds Volumes I and II

      Lizars, Edinburgh 1833 - Bibliography: The Naturalist’s Library consists of a series of 40 small octavo volumes dealing with the natural history of 4 groups of animals: Birds, Fish, Mammals and Insects. There are 14 volumes in this Ornithology series. Each of these small volumes consists of around 200 to 300 text pages and 30 or more hand coloured plates. There is a frontispiece depicting, in a black and white engraving, a famous naturalist. This is followed by a title page, with another engraving but of a scene from nature. There is then an essay on the life of the naturalist shown in the frontispiece. The centre piece of the illustrations thereafter is usually handcoloured and made more attractive by leaving the finely engraved naturalistic background uncoloured. (These backgrounds are not readily shown in the accompanying photographs). Several editions were produced during the middle of the 19th century. Different publishers were involved in these editions and the numbering of volumes is not consistent. The first volume produced was Volume I of two devoted to Humming Birds. Both were published in 1833. Volume I of the Humming Birds was the very first of Naturalist’s Library to be published. Volume II followed a few months later, in November 1833, after the publication of a volume on Monkeys in the Mammalian Series. Description: The binding of these two volumes is uniform. The front and back covers are light green cloth with dark green leather corners. The spine is in the same dark green leather. The spine is divided into 6 sections with the title ‘History of Humming Birds’, author ‘ Jardine’ Vol I’ and date ‘1833’ in gilt. The are gilt decorations of birds in the other sections. The size of these volumes is a uniform 10 by 15 cm. All the edges are gilt. The front and end pastedowns are in green and red marbling. The frontispiece of Volume I is an engraving of the taxonomist Linnaeus, This is separated by a tissue guard from the first of two title pages. This title page states ‘The Naturalist’s Library Ornithology Vol I ‘ and gives the publishers as Edinburgh WH Lizars; London Samuel Highley; and Dublin W Curry. It has a coloured engraving of a nest. The second title page states that this is: The Natural History of Humming Birds Illustrated by Thirty Five Plates, Coloured and Numerous Wood Cuts, with a memoir of Linnaeus. by Sir William Jardine Vol I. It gives the publishers as Edinburgh WH Lizars, and Stirling and Kenney; Longman and others London; and WCurry Dublin. There is then a table of contents. This identifies the species described by popular name in English and gives the page number. The Plate identifies the species by the taxonomic name and gives the number of the plate. Following this is an explanatory publisher’s advertisment from page 17 to 22. The memoir of Linneaus is from page 25 to 61. The general nature of Humming Birds is described from page 62 to 84. The descriptions of individual species follows. Each species is allocated about 3 to 4 pages of text with a full page illustration No artist is identified. The structure of Volume II is the same as for Volume I. The naturalist is Thomas Pennant. There are 31 plates. At the end of this 2nd volume there is a synopsis of the complete family of Trochilidae arranged in 5 sub families. The plates identifying the different species in these subfamilies are given. There is also an index. Condition The condition of both of these volumes is fine. They have been rebound by Bayntun of Bath, England. There are no marks, bumping, looseness of any kind. Apart from the most discreet of marks identifying the binder there are no inscriptions of any kind. There is minor foxing in the blank front and end papers. There is a very small nick in each of the two frontispieces of famous naturalists. These volumes are slightly smaller than usual. . The Humming Birds are, along with the Parrot and Bird of Paradise families, the most ornate of birds and this is shown beautifully in this series. All plates are pre [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Two volumes. Etched frontispiece to each and eight other similar plates, map to Volume I.

Alexander had a remarkable forty-seven year career in the army of the EIC and the British Army both. He first saw service in the Burma War of 1824, then later, having in the interim transferred to the 13th Light Dragoons, with the Persian Army during the war with Russia in 1826. Subsequently he was in Portugal for the Miguelite War of 1832-4, A-D-C to D'Urban in the Kaffir War of 1835, and led an exploring party into Namaqualand and Damaraland, for which service he was knighted. After a period in Canada, and having risen to Lieutenant-Colonel, Alexander led his present regiment, the 14th Foot, in the Crimea, remaining there until 1856. His final active service was in New Zealand where he commanded the troops at Auckland in the Maori War. He is probably best remebered today for his rÔle in saving and transporting Cleopatra's Needle. The DNB is somewhat cruel in remarking that ?His singularly varied service furnished him with materials for a large number of volumes of a rather desultory kind.? He published twelve works in his lifetime including accounts of all of the campaigns in which he was involved and his explorations in Africa and North America, but also a life of Wellington and a description of the salvation of Cleopatra's Needle. If the contents of the present work are anything to go by his output was far from ?desultory? Alexander is lively and informative on all aspects of life in the locations visited on this trip undertaken whilst unattached. He planned well for his trip and having decided to visit the New World, ?I communicated my intention to the Secretary of the Royal Geographical Society, and to other literary and scientific individuals, and volunteered to execute commissions for them in America or the West Indies. I thus obtained a series of interrogatories to answer, and in collecting the information for myself, had my attention directed to other matters of great interest, which I might otherwise have omitted to notice.? As a result they ensure far from desultory accounts of Guiana, Barbados, Trinidad, Tobago, Jamaica and Cuba [with fascinating digressions of the slave trade] and an extensive tour of North America - up the Mississippi from New Orleans to Memphis, thence by wagon to Nashville, and by stage to Louisville and Cincinnati on his way East before heading from Canada. An exemplary travelogue. The bookplates record the presentation of the volumes to Edward Hemphill, his later ownership inscriptions as Ensign and Lieutenant 69th Regiment to the front free endpaper of Volume II.

      Washington, D.C. 1833 - Autograph Letter Signed as Congressman, to Stephen Bates. Washington, D.C., April 1, 1833. 3 pp. 8 x 9 3/4 in. "To all members of the Masonic fraternity, who entered it before the murder of Morgan I would extend the most liberal Toleration. Most of them took the Oaths without reflecting upon what they imported.Now the case is otherwise. How they can now take or administer the cutthroat Oath to keep Secret, what all the world knows, I cannot comprehend."In the wake of the murder of William Morgan, a prominent anti-Mason who had threatened to reveal the society's secrets, John Quincy Adams requested the return of an old letter. Considering the political climate, Adams thought the letter would reflect poorly on its now-deceased recipient, as well as expose Adams, a prominent opponent of Freemasonry, to public criticism for having supported a man he knew to be of good character who also happened to be a Mason. The former president, now in Congress, goes on to explain his political support for anti-Masonry, one of the first third-party political movements in the United States. Complete TranscriptStephen Bates Esq. Boston Washington 1 April 1833I thank you for your kindness and attention in procuring and transmitting to me the Letter which about this Time last year I wrote to my young and now deceased friend John B. Davis, little as I imagined when it was written how sad and by what a melancholy casualty it would return to me. He had written to me, requesting a Letter from me to Governor Lincoln recommending him as a Candidate for the appointment of public attorney for the County of Suffolk, then, or soon expected to be vacant. And knowing my opinions, adverse to the Masonic Institution, of which he was a member, he had mentioned the fact to me, as a circumstance which he deemed it proper Should be known to me, in coming to my determination upon his request. From the Confidence which I had in his personal integrity, and the friendship which I entertained for him, I did not hesitate to comply with his desire. I wrote to him the Letter which you have seen and on the same day recommended him by another to Governor Lincoln. It may perhaps have occurred to you that if it had fallen into hands, of persons on the search for matter of charge or censure upon me, they would have argued on inconsistency between the sentiments expressed in this Letter, and those avowed in another to Mr. Benjamin Cowell of Rhode Island of more recent date, and which has been published; but there is no inconsistency between them at all. In the Letter to Mr. Cowell I declared my approbation of the principle of those Anti-Masons, who believing the Masonic Institutions to be an enormous Nuisance in the Community; and that if the Oaths, Obligations and Penalties were not voluntarily relinquished, they ought to be prohibited by Penal Statutes enacted by the State Legislatures, voted exclusively for persons holding the same opinions, to be members of the State Legislatures. Thus far I cordially approved of Political Anti-Masonry - And hold it to be neither disfranchisement nor persecution of Masons - The Legislature of Rhode Island have gone further. They have made the Administration of extra judicial Oaths penal; and have interdicted it my disfranchisement for the second offense. This I approve also, because it looks to the future. It does not disfranchise men because they have taken or administered extra judicial Oaths heretofore. That was Mr. Davis's case. I should not hold it justifiable to exclude such persons from public offices. I might scrutinize somewhat more closely their principles. To all members of the Masonic fraternity, who entered it before the murder of Morgan I would extend the most liberal Toleration. Most of them took the Oaths without reflecting upon what they imported, or sheltering their consciences under the great names which had gone before them. They were always taken by surprize, Summoned to take the O. (See website for full description)

        Lettres de Héléodore adressées à Napoléon Bonaparte depuis le 13 ventôse an 8 (ou 4 mars 1800) jusqu'au 17 mars 1814. - Lettre d'un Français adressée à M. le comte d'Artois en messidor an 12 (ou juillet 1804).

      Paris, Hector Bossange, Bohaire, Lecointe et Pougin, Charles Gosselin, Delaunay 1833 - 2 vol. in-8, [8]-320 et [4]-248-15 pp., demi-basane bouteille, dos à larges nerfs ornés de filets et guirlandes dorés, et de fleurons à froid, palmettes à froid sur les plats, tranches marbrées (reliure de l'époque). Dos un peu insolés, mais bon exemplaire. Unique édition, très peu commune, de cette correspondance informative qui aurait été adressée à Napoléon pendant le Consulat et l'Empire, et qui fait un peu penser à celle (authentique) de Fiévée. Mais la comparaison s'arrête là : il est impossible de déterminer si ces missives ont été effectivement mises sous les yeux de l'Empereur pour le fournir en renseignements "indépendants", les précautions avancées dans l'introduction pour expliquer qu'on n'a jamais recherché l'identité de l'auteur sentent un peu trop la manoeuvre pour décourager d'aller y voir de plus prêt. Davois II, 242 Exemplaire de l'érudit montreuillois Charles Henneguier (1811-1872), avec cachet humide apposé aux titres.
