      - Genève et Paris, J. Cherbuliez, V. Masson, 1852 [1853]-1858. Three parts in two (text and atlas). Large 8vo (23.6 x 15.3 cm). l, 286; 4, cxcix [i], 256; 352 [iii] pp. (and a loose errata leaf numbered xxiv, tipped in); 77 engraved plates with explanatory text leaves, of which 54 are nicely hand-coloured, drawn by Saussure himself, Nicoulaud, and others. Uniform contemporary half calf with gilt titles on spines. Original printed front wrappers of volume I and the first two atlas volumes bound in.l Very rare monumental monograph on wasps that is seldom seen in a complete state. The work contains numerous descriptions and fine illustrations of new and little known species. Several nests (often with cross-sections) are also illustrated, as is a schematic view of the phylogeny of the groups. Nissen quotes 78 plates, including "VI bis", but in his instruction to the binders De Saussure specifically calls for 77 plates as in this set; there is no mention of a VI bis plate. The collation of Horn-Schenkling is confusing and incorrect. Plates uncut. The title on the spines is in English. Rebacked with the old spine mounted and with markings of removed tape on one of the volumes. Bookplate pasted in on front. Some pencil marks in the text. The text is rather foxed, and the coloured plates have a bit of foxing in the margins; some are more evenly toned. Nevertheless, in all, a good set. Not a single auction record found in the past 50 years. Horn-Schenkling, 18922, 18927, 18929; Nissen ZBI, 3594. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        THE VIGILANCE COMMITTEE OF SAN FRANCISCO. METCALF vs. ARGENTI et al. SPEECHES OF R.A. LOCKWOOD, ESQ.

      San Francisco. 1852. - 48pp. Modern three-quarter morocco and cloth, spine gilt. Slight shelf wear. Bookplate on front pastedown. A bit of foxing, light stain in gutter of titlepage. Very good. An important event in the history of the first Vigilance Committee. Rufus Lockwood was Metcalf's lawyer in this bizarre case. Metcalf, a drayman, was accused of stealing goods he was transporting. In the middle of the night, Argenti and a Vigilance Committee group came to Metcalf's house and violently searched it for "stolen items," material actually in a warehouse in transit. Metcalf sued Argenti and his band for damages. The verdict of the case was $200 in compensation for Metcalf, significantly less than the $20,000 he requested. "These speeches of Lockwood are required reading for anyone wishing to understand the dark and cruel side of the activities of the Vigilance Committee" - Streeter. SABIN 41752. COHEN 12019.

        Chronicles of England, France, Spain,

      London: Henry G. Bohn,, 1852. And the adjoining countries, from the latter part of the reign of Edward II to the coronation of Henry IV. Translated from the French editions with variations and additions from many celebrated mss. by Thomas Johnes. To which are prefixed a life of the author, an essay on his works and a criticism on his history. In two volumes. 2 volumes, large octavo (238 x 166 mm). Recent red morocco by Bayntun-Riviere, titles and decoration to spines gilt in compartments, vignette of knight to front covers, gilt frame to covers, turn-ins and edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Illuminated chromolithograph frontispieces and divisional titles in both volumes, chromolithograph title page in vol. 1, with 70 similar plates by Henry Noel Humphreys, all with paper guards, and numerous wood engravings in the text. A fine set. A handsomely bound set of Johnes's translation of Froissart's chronicle of the Hundred Years' War. The first edition of Johnes's translation was published in four volumes at the translator's own press in Hafod between 1803 and 1810; the first edition containing the three preliminary essays published in 1839. The superb chromolithograph plates by Noel Humphreys were first published in William Smith's edition of 1844–45. Froissart's chronicle is considered one of the most important sources for the history of medieval Europe and chivalric culture. Originally written in French in the late 14th century it circulated widely in manuscript, with lavishly illuminated copies especially popular among nobles and clergyman, and was first printed in Paris by Anthoine Vérard circa 1495. An edition in English, translated from a Latin abridgement, did not appear until 1608. Johnes "remains the only man to have undertaken the formidable task of translating Froissart's Chronicles in their entirety, and the appearance of subsequent editions until 1906 testifies to their worth" (ODNB).

        Autograph Letter, Signed, To Jeremiah Morrow, Cincinnati, August 10..

      1852. Memories of Ohio Governor Jeremiah Morrow by by an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court McLean, John [1785-1861]. [Adair, Robert F.]. Morrow, Jeremiah (1771-1852)]. [Autograph Letter, Signed, To Robert F. Adair, Cincinnati, OH, August 10, 1852]. Single leaf folded to form bifolium and a single leaf, all 10-1/2" x 8-1/2," franked on verso of single leaf. Content in neat hand to rectos and versos of bifolium leaves. Light toning, vertical and horizontal fold lines, small losses at wax seal causing very small text loss, but no loss of legibility, minor edgewear and a few short tears to margins. This letter is accompanied by a contemporary 4-1/2" x 3-1/2" copperplate portrait of McLean (on a 9" x 6" leaf). $950. * A substantive 4-1/2 page letter by U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice John McLean about late Ohio congressman, senator, and governor, Jeremiah Morrow, who died five months earlier. McLean had served in Congress with Morrow. Appointed by President Andrew Jackson, McLean is best remembered today as the senior Supreme Court justice, and one of only two justices, who dissented in Dred Scott v. Sanford. During the 1850s, when Chief Justice Roger B. Taney was frequently ill, McLean who presided over the Court. In this letter, McLean replies to a query about Morrow from Robert F. Adair and here appends a four-page memoir of his late friend. Robert F. Adair of Maysville, Kentucky may possibly be silversmith Robert Farriss Adair (1833-1907). Justice McLean writes: "Many years ago I was well acquainted with Mr. Morrow, having served with him in Washington, and lived in the same county with him in Ohio." McLean directs Adair to write to "Howard Dunlevy Esquire" who lived only six miles from Governor Morrow. Almost like a postscript, McLean writes "[a] very hasty sketch of Morrow." Much more than a sketch, it almost four pages in length and includes biographical facts and, more interestingly, personal observations, anecdotes and judgments.

        Scènes de la vie privée et publique des animaux.

      1852. 158679 GRANDVILLE, J.J. Scènes de la vie privée et publique des animaux. [4], 220 pp. With engraved title-page and 24 plates. 4to., 295 x 208 mm. Bound in contemporary half morocco over boards. Paris: M.M. Maresq and Gustave Havard, 1852. |~||~||~||~||~| Second Edition of a Grandville masterpiece, a fantastic example of anthropomorphic illustration and an important precursor of surrealism. These illustrations represent some of Grandville's most memorable creations. Many of the plates are of single figures, but there are also satirical scenes of everyday life, monsters, animals looking at politicians caged at the zoo, etc. The texts contained herein were written by such notable authors as Balzac, Charles Nodier, George Sand and Louis Viardot, Hetzel, who published the first edition in 1842, was the the motivating force behind this work, which he undertook in order to "give words to Grandville's marvellous animals, and to join our pen with his pencil, thereby coming to his assistance in criticizing the aberrations of our epoch, and by preference among these aberrations, those which are of every period and every country." Gordon N. Ray writes: "Through Grandville's animals, Hetzel and his colleagues offered a witty and telling commentary on contemporary politics and personalities." The illustrations contained in this work are some of the most memorable creations of Grandville. Most of Grandville's plates are of single figures, but there are also satirical scenes of everyday life, monsters, animals looking at politicians caged at the zoo, etc. Originally published in 1842 in two volumes, this edition was reset with the text in two columns in order to be able to issue it in one volume. Apart from the occasional insignificant spot, this is an almost pristine copy. One of the most charming examples of zoomorphic illustration and an important precursor of surrealism. Ray 194. Carteret III, 552-59. Rebeyrat, Catalogue bibliographique et bibliophilique in: J.-J. Grandville (1985) pp. 289-90.

        Beautifully illustrated & vividly colored scroll entitled "Kano Bicchumori kaei gonen kacchu chakuyo choren ezu" ["Military Exercises at the Estate of Kano, Lord of Bicchu, in the Fifth Year of Kaei"]. One picture scroll, 263 x 10,170 mm., with numerous illus. and black & red manuscript explanatory text

      - [From the preface]: "April 1852." In the early 1850s, Japan still maintained sakoku, a policy of isolationism established in 1635 and intended to minimize foreign influence. The governments of Britain, the United States, and Russia, were each determined to be the first to benefit from trade with Japan. Within Japan, there was a growing and passionate debate about how to respond to foreign incursions. Two major camps formed: one claimed it was necessary to use foreign technology in order to repel invasions; the other argued that only traditional Japanese methods should be employed. Our scroll depicts the integration of Western weapons into this faction's strategy. This is a finely illustrated scroll with bird's-eye views of Lord Hisaakira Kano's well-equipped private army at a shimoyashiki (a secondary estate) outside of central Edo. It depicts military exercises which took place a year before Commodore Matthew Perry's first arrival. The scroll vividly illustrates formations, uniforms, and the coordinated use of rifles and cannons. In one of the scenes depicted in our scroll, Kano (1813-64), second lord of Ichinomiya-han in Kazusa province, is shown leading the exhibition of his troops' capabilities. A top minister of security, Kano advised the shogun closely on matters of national defense. An authority on such matters, he prioritized the coastal defenses of his province, which occupied a key strategic location close to Edo. Kano's army, composed of farmers, fishermen, and merchants, was superbly organized and well-equipped with the latest military technology supplied by the Dutch. The preface by Ishishi Keikyo (probably a pen-name) announces the depicted exercises as a momentous occasion celebrating Kano's military expertise. The scroll opens with a close-up at the entrance of the estate, which has been heavily decorated with the battle banners of the Kano family, as a dignitary arrives with his attendants. Guards stand ready to inspect them. The next panel offers a more expansive view, from a greater distance, of the parade grounds and the preparations for the exercises. On the right are the headquarters where the leaders (some named in red) have placed their ceremonial armor and weapons. In the background, troops in makeshift structures prepare for the display by putting on their armor. The following panels show Kano troops in formation as the exercises begin. They divide themselves into smaller squads, each behind their own colored flag, then form a procession in the shape of a square. The text in black provides the name of the formation (i.e. kagyu no jin "snail formation"; koya maedatami "defensive lines"; gyogun "marching formation"; yonchojo "four line formation"; juni inyo "twelve lines"; zenjin tezume daishohorenpatsu "cannon and rifle formation"; senjin kojin sogakari daishojurenpatsu "frontline and backline charge together with small guns"; sogun tsuiho "all-out assault"; and ryogun gattai "final assembly"). The red text meticulously describes the composition and purposes of each formation, as well as naming many of the generals involved. Subsequent sections depict the live-fire portion of the exercise. The riflemen form long lines adjacent to several cannons. Behind long sheets held up by two men, they fire into empty space. The brushwork masterfully renders the billowing gunpowder smoke. Soldiers armed with spears and swords charge at the imaginary enemy, while the riflemen and cannoneers smile, their part of the job complete. At this point, the amount of red text increases greatly, likely because of the explanation of weapons and tactics unfamiliar to many in Japan. In the penultimate panel, the riflemen and cannons create a longer line, fire, then charge with their comrades to land the finishing blow. In the final section, the troops join in formation around their leader Lord Kano. Different squads are distinguished by colored banners and armor. In fine and fresh condition with bright coloring.

Manuskripte zur Veröffentlichung in der Reichspost, bei welcher Eberle den Bereich "Allgemeine Kultur und religiöse Fragen" leitete. (7. IX. 1919:) "Es gibt keinen Autor, der nicht von einem mißwollenden Leser hingerichtet werden könnte dagegen hilft keine Vorsicht. Als ich vor Jahren meine apologtischen Gespräche über Religion in Jos. Mosers "Schul- u. Elternztg." veröffentlichte, erhielt Moser auch von einem Ordenspriester, der mich aber wiederholt in gedrückten Kritiken überschwenglich gelobt hat, bedenkliche Briefe, so daß mir nachträglich die Herausgabe in Buchform verleidet war. Und nun sagte mir vor kurzem Seminardirektor Gustav Müller, ihm habe ein Priester gesagt, daß er noch jetzt diese alten Kapitel bei Predigten u. sonst sehr gut gebrauchen könne. Ich habe dann bei Moser auch eine Psychologie ("Welt und Seele") kapitelweise erscheinen lassen da würden mir aber die Bedenken über diese Arbeit zu arg und ich brach die Veröffentlichung plötzlich ab, um nicht Ärgernis zu erregen" Weiter Bezug zur Flucht von Joseph Görres, Publizist (1776-1848). - Sonstige Briefe zu bestimmten Zeitungsartikeln oder der Position Kraliks gegenüber der Reichspost, etc. - Postkarten: (Undatierte Postkarte:) Verschiebung einer Gralsitzung (Anm.: Kralik gründete die katholisch-nationalistische Gesellschaft "Gralbund" mit der Zeitung "Der Gral") - (undatierte Postkarte:) Einladung zu einer Gralsitzung am 6. XII. 1916. - (Postkarte 16. XI. 1918:) "L[ieber] fr[eund] Ich rate dir, in der Anzeige des neuen Titels zu sagen, daß nicht eine Wandlung in den Anschauungen über die Staatsform, sondern der Umstand ausschlaggebend war, daß derzeit eine "öst.-ung. Monarchie" als Reichsgebiet nicht existiert, sondern nur verschiedene Teilstaaten, von denen wir allerdings hoffen, daß sie auf föderativem Wege wieder zu einem Bunde einigen werden, dessen Benennung wir aber nicht vorgreifen wollen. - Ich habe heute wieder ein paar Artikelchen geschrieben [...]" - (1. IX. 1919:) "Ich beug mich geknirscht vor dem Wauwau Von der Hohen Schule von Stockerau und flehe, man spreche mich endlich frei Von meiner verbrecherischen Bahrbahrei". - Manuskripte: Alle Manuskripte sind auf der Rückseite eines alten Manuskriptes verfasst worden, welches unvollständig und unzusammenhängend ist (hauptsächlich Geschichtliches). Die Seitenangabe bezieht sich auf die relevanten Seiten, d. h. 10 S. = 10 Bl.) - 1. "Tage und Werke. Lebenserinnerungen von Richard Kralik. Werke zur Literaturgeschichte. "[...] Wenn Gott, der Vater, Christi, die Welt geschaffen hat, so ist auch die ganze Welt ihrem Wesen nach christlich, d. h. katholisch. Darum steht Christus auch in der Mitte der Weltliteratur [...] Alles dient nur dazu, die christliche Kultur zu schmücken und auszugestalten. [...]"(10 S.) - 2. "Tage und Werke. Lebenserinnerungen von Richard Kralik. Literarische Vereinigungen. Kommentare zu Idunna, Leogesellschaft, Wiener Literarischer Verein, viel über den Gralbund. "[...]Ich sah nicht etwa die Katholische Literatur als "auch" zulässig an, sondern als den Gipfel, die Krone, die Vollendung aller Literatur sie sollte nicht bloß geduldet, sondern in ihrer alles überragenden Bedeutung sowohl von Katholiken wie Nichtkatholiken anerkannt werden. [...]" (10 S.) - Beiliegend Buchseiten über die Geschichte Wallensteins. (24 S.) - 3. "Zur Revision der deutschen Geschichte und Kultur vom süddeutsch-österreichischen Standpunkt. Neue Beiträge von Dr. Richard Kralik. " II. - Geschichtliche Abhandlung, die mit einem Aufruf gegen die Entente endet, die das katholische Österreich "an Haupt und Gliedern" zerstören will. (10 S.) - 4. "Tage und Werke. Lebenserinnerungen von Richard Kralik. Meine wissenschaftlichen Werke. Geschichte." In erster Linie Abhandlung über seine eigenen Geschichtsbücher. (12 S.) - 5. Die erste Seite fehlt, daher titellos. Kommentar zum ersten Weltkrieg und zu Kaiser Karl I. (4 S.) - 5. "Kulturelle Gedanken zu den Wahlen" Eine Ermahnung, die Wahlen ernstzunehmen. (6 S.) - 6. "Zum Jubiläum des hl. Hieronymus" Abhandlung über den Hl. Hieronymus mit Kommentar auf die Gegenwart (5 S.) - 7. "Allgemeine Geschichte der Neuesten Zeit. Eine Selbstanzeige von Dr. Richard Kralik" Abhandlung über die Entwicklungen der letzten Jahrzehnte, darunter v. a. Bismarck, welchen er stark verurteilt: "[...]Nicht die Begeisterung für deutsche oder preußische Größe hat seine Handlungen beseelt, sondern der Haß gegen das katholische, das habsburgische Österreich.[...]" (11 S.) - 8. "Legitimität. Von Dr. Richard Kralik" Beitrag hauptsächlich zum bereits geschehen ersten Weltkrieg: "[...] Aber - aber - die nichtlegitimen Einflüße und Störungen waren es, die verfassungsmäßige Fortentwicklung gestört haben. Also nicht Schwäche und Irrtum in der legitimen Handhabung der Gesetze, sondern Bosheit, Verbrechen und Verrat haben die organische Entwicklung der österreichisch-ungarischen Verfassung aufgehalten. unmöglich gemacht und zum Scheitern gebracht. Bis zum letzten Augenblick haben sich die Nationalitäten Österreichs als loyal bekannt und ihre Mitarbeit am Verfassungswerk zugesagt. Der Verrat kam von außen, von den Ententemächten und ihrer lebhaften Propaganda [...]" Weiter Kommentar zum Kommunismus und seinem Widerspruch zur Natur. (13 S.) - 9. "Das Unfehlbarkeitsdogma. Von Richard Kralik" Abhandlung über die päpstliche Unfehlbarkeit und dem Ersten Vatikanischen Konzil von 1870. Dabei Verurteilen der Bischöfe, die dem gegenüber skeptisch waren (und Verurteilung Bismarcks). Der katholische Theologe Ignaz von Döllinger (1799-1890) wird ebenfalls stark kritisiert. (20 S.) - Richard Ritter Kralik von Meyrswalden war katholisch-konservativer Kultur- und Literaturhistoriker, Dramatiker und Lyriker (vgl. ÖAW). Nanuskripte auf den Rückseiten stets mit einem blauen Buntstift durchgestrichen. Auf den Vorderseiten öfters Korrekturen durch eine fremde Hand (vermutlich von Eberle). Öfters sind Textpassagen korrigierend mit anderen Textpassagen überklebt, dadurch Klebspuren. Die äußeren Seiten jeweils immer leicht angestaubt. Sonst gut erhalten.

        Anatome topographica sectionibus per corpus humanum congelatum triplici directione ductis illustrata.

      St. Petersburg: Typis Jacobi Trey, 1852. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Elephant Folio. 1852-1859. 8 parts in 1 text volume and 4 parts in 1 atlas volume. Text vol.: 4to (263 x 168 mm), [2], xiv, 248, 75 [1], 28, 39 [1], 90, 60, 74, 168 pp. Atlas vol.: elephant folio (566 x 375 mm), comprising 4 parts in 13 fascicules with a total of 220 lithographic plates, of which 14 doubled page and one folding (some sheets present with two plate numbers each), lacking the 4 part titles, plates partly untrimmed and of various sizes, one oversize plate bound in as double-page and laid down on white paper. Later three-quarter calf over marbled boards, spines titled in blind (light rubbing to extremities, corners slightly bumped). Text volume internally little age-toned only, otherwise crisp and clean; atlas volume with occasional scattered foxing (some plates stronger) and marginal dust-soiling, a few plates trimmed close or shaved a few mm, a few short tears without loss, occsional annotations in light pencil. ----Garrison-M. 416, 615; Choulant, p.408; Roberts & Tomlinson, The fabric of the Body, p.576-7; Hirsch-H. IV. - EXCEPTIONALLY RARE FIRST EDITION INCLUDING BOTH THE TEXT- AND ATLAS VOLUME. "Pirogov was the greatest of all Russian surgeons. In Russian medicine he is approached only by Pavlov. He introduced the teaching of applied topographical anatomy in Russia. His great atlas of 220 plates represents the first use on a grand scale of frozen sections in anatomical illustration, an idea first carried out by de Riemer" (Garrison-M). Pirogov's frozen cross-sections bear a close resemblance to modern images produced through computed tomography (CT), and may be appreciated as the first comprehensive record of how the body could be viewed in this way. "The first volume consists of life-size sections of the head, most in transverse planes; the second contains transverse and sagittal sections of the thorax; the third transverse, sagittal and frontal sections of the abdominal cavity in both sexes; the fourth sections in three planes through the extremities and their joints." (Choulant). "Pirogov's further unusual and independent studies of an anatomy, carried out at Tartu from 1835 to 1840, and in Petersburg from 1841 to 1856, were published in Latin in eight parts... This atlas contained [lithographies] based on cross-sections of frozen corpses, a technique apparently invented by P. de Riemer in the Netherlands in 1818, and also, independently, by Pirogov, and published by him in this atlas. The technique enabled him to investigate the relationship of structures as they actually exist in a body undisturbed by dissection. Pirogov's dedication to his work has been widely noted: it has been said that he made 12000 autopsies while Professor at the Medical-Surgical Academy of Peterburg." (Roberts & Tomlinson, p.576). Our copy collates with the digitized Heidelberg copy, except that the Heidelberg copy lacks plate 22 in fasc. 2 and plate 12bis (the second half of the double-page) in Fasc. 2A. Part 1 contains 51 plates subdivided into fasc. 1, 1A, 1B and appendix, part 2 has 44 plates subdivided into fasc. 2, 2A, and 2B, part 3 has 90 plates subdivided in fasc. 3, 3A, and 3B and Part 4 has 35 plates subdivided in fasc. 4, 4A, and 4B. Since Pirogov's text was published in a much smaller format six years after the atlas, it is likely that few copies of the atlas would be associated with the accompanying text and in fact we cannot trace any copy at auction that had both, the text and the atlas volume. The only copy of the atlas volume only (incomplete lacking 2 part titles) has been the Dean Edell copy (sold at Christie's in 2015 for USD 11,250). Very Good.

        Uncle Tom's Cabin; With twenty-seven illustrations by George Cruikshank.

      London: John Cassell, 1852 - 13 parts in 11 as issued, octavo (203 x 132 mm). Original yellow paper wrappers printed in black, including the 2-page advertisement for Parr's Life-Pills to the rear of part 6, which is often lacking. Housed in a custom-made red quarter morocco solander box. Ownership signature of S. Stewart Taunton to front wrappers of part 4. Wrappers browned and a little soiled and chipped, contents very occasionally foxed, overall in extremely good condition which is rare for this edition as the wrappers were printed on poor quality paper. Portrait frontispiece and vignette title page to part 13, and 27 full-page wood engraved plates. First UK and first Cruikshank edition of Stowe's sensational abolitionist novel in the original weekly parts, one of the scarcest forms of the story, published in the same year as both the conclusion of the serialised story in the American abolitionist newspaper The National Era and the first US publication in book form. Cassell's choice of artist for his edition was well-calculated, for at the time Cruikshank was a world-famous artist whose influence ensured that Stowe's work circulated in the most fashionable illustrated book markets. This illustrated edition was "one of the most popular and long-lived. [Cruikshank's] twenty-seven whole-page designs, reproduced as wood-engravings, concentrated upon the scenes which were to provide the basic matrix for the majority of subsequent illustrated editions", and ensured that Uncle Tom's Cabin became known as a visual icon as well as a literary phenomenon (Wood, p. 152).

        A Grammar and Dictionary of the Malay Language,: with a Preliminary Dissertation. Vol.I. Dissertation and Grammar.

      London Smith, Elder & Co. 1852 - John Crawfurd, 1783-1868, East India Company surgeon, began his study of the Malay language when he was posted to Penang in 1808. He accompanied Raffles on the invasion of Java and was appointed resident at the Court of Yogyakarta where he also learnt Javanese. In 1823 he was appointed Resident of Singapore. In all Crawfurd spent 12 years in countries where Malay was the main or vernacular language. In the preface he thanks his friend Marsden, and acknowledges that "without the previous labours of Mr Marsden, my book certainly never would have been written, or even attempted", but goes on the state that his own work "is more copious than any of its predecessors". The Grammar only, without the Dictionary. A very good used copy in original cloth.

Trial of Colonel David Pinniger, Lt. Col. William P. Maxwell, Major Nathan Whiting, Captain Allen Tillinghast: Officers of the Kentish Guards, Before a General Court-Martial Holden at the Court-House, In Providence, April 27, 1808, For Disobedience of Orders and Neglect of Duty. Warren [RI]: Printed by Nathaniel & John F. Phillips, 1808. 41, [4] pp. Errata slip pasted to verso of p.41. Octavo (7-3/4"x 4-3/4"). Stab-stitched pamphlet, fragments to wrapper along spine, untrimmed edges. Moderate toning, early owner signature to verso of final leaf. $650. * Only edition. Formed in 1774, the Kentish Guards of Rhode Island boasted General Nathanael Greene as an original officer. The Guards distinguished themselves at the Siege of Boston and elsewhere. In 1807 Colonel David Pinniger refused an order to select six guardsmen for federal service, asserting that the Guards's charter permitted the call up of the entire unit, but not individual soldiers. Pinniger's refusal precipitated his court martial and that of the fellow officers who supported him. All were removed from office without further penalty. The guards elected replacement officers; no one went into the U.S. Army. This pamphlet was published by the officers after the "unfavorable result" of the court martial in order to protect their reputations. All aspects of the case are covered.
