        Utrecht, Oudegracht - H. de Pr?, ca. 1800.

      GEZICHT OP DE DOM TE UTRECHT VANAF DE OUDEGRACHTTekening in aquarelverf vervaardigd ca. 1800 door H. de Pr? naar een tekening van Pieter Jan van Liender uit ca. 1760. Gesigneerd rechtsonder. Afm. 34,5 x 21,5 cm.Bij het graven van de Oudegracht in Utrecht werd de afgegraven grond gebruikt om de oevers op te hogen. Op de hoge oevers kwam een weg te liggen met daarachter huizen van kooplieden. De opslagkelders van de huizen werden onder de straten naar de gracht doorgetrokken. V??r deze kelders werden nieuwe kaden aangelegd. Zo zijn de typische werven en werfkelders ontstaan. Vanaf de vijftiende eeuw vormde de Oudegracht een twee kilometer lange haven met dubbele kade die eeuwenlang de levensader van de stad vormde.Op de tekening zien we de Oudegracht met de Gaardbrug en werfkelders, voorgevels van de huizen aan de oostzijde van de gracht, de Domtoren en (rechts) het hoekhuis Lijnmarkt 50, uit het zuiden.H. de Pr? was actief tussen 1790 ? 1810 en kopieerde topografische tekeningen van Pieter Jan van Liender (1727-1779) met voorstellingen van de stad Utrecht.Prijs: Euro 1.850,-.

        Propyläen. Eine periodische Schrifft [Bde.2f.: Schrift] herausgegeben von Goethe. Ersten Bandes Erstes Stück (- Dritten Bandes Zweites Stück.). Sechs Stücke in drei Bänden. Mit fünf Kupfertafeln (davon zwei in Rötel und eine gefaltet).

      Tübingen, in der J.G.Cotta’schen Buchhandlung 1798 – 1800 - Gr-8°. I: XLVI S., (1) Bl., 127 S.; (2) Bll., 176 S.; II: 174 S., (1) Bl.; 171, (1) S., (1) Bl.; III: 179, (1) S., (2) Bll. Anzeigen; 175, (1) S. Halblederbände d.Zt. mit zwei farb. Rückenschilden und –vergoldung. Decken berieben, Ecken etwas bestoßen. - Erste Ausgabe (Goedeke IV/3,357-360, 89; Hagen 483; Fischer, Cotta 242, 271 u. 303). – Teils etwas stockfleckig. Zeitgenöss. Name a.d. Vorsatz „F.A.Müller“. - Nach dem unerwartet baldigen Niedergang von SCHILLERs Horen „konzipierte nunmehr GOETHE federführend mit modifizierten Ansprüchen und Inhalten die Propyläen. . Nahtlos knüpften die Propyläen, das zweite und letzte Journal der Weimarer Publizistik, deshalb mit ihrem ersten Erscheinungsjahr an das letzte der Horen an.“ (M.Gross, Ästhetik und Öffentlichkeit, S.191). Gedanklich vorbereitet war das Projekt seit einigen Jahren, da GOETHE ein enzyklopädisches Werk über Kunst und Geschichte Italiens plante. Dazu gesammelte Entwürfe und Aufsätze sollten nun in die Propyläen einfließen. Die klassizistische Kunstauffassung der Herausgeber sollte einer breiten Öffentlichkeit nahe gebracht, die Kunst aus „beschränkten, häuslichen Verhältnissen“ (Meyer) wieder wie im antiken Griechenland dem „öffentlichen Lebenszusammenhang“ zugeführt werden. Von Beginn an wandte sich die Zeitschrift gegen die aufkommende Kunstauffassung der jungen Generation: „Der Jüngling, wenn Natur und Kunst ihn anziehen, glaubt, mit einem lebhaften Streben, bald in das innerste Heiligthum zu dringen; der Mann bemerkt, nach langem Umherwandeln, daß er sich noch immer in den Vorhöfen befinde.“ (GOETHE im ersten Satz der Einleitung). R.Benz hält für wahrscheinlich, dass sich dies direkt auf WACKENRODERs Absicht, der Kunst „einen neuen Altar aufzurichten“ bezieht und gegen die „frühromantische“ Kunstauffassung, wenn GOETHE fortfährt: „Der echte gesetzgebende Künstler strebt nach Kunstwahrheit, der Gesetzlose, der einem blinden Trieb folgt, nach Naturwirklichkeit, durch jenen wird die Kunst zum höchsten Gipfel, durch diesen auf die niedrigste Stufe gebracht.“ Die meisten der enthaltenen Artikel stammen von GOETHE und MEYER. CAROLINE und WILHELM VON HUMBOLDT und SCHILLER beteiligten sich mit je einem Beitrag weniger als erhofft. Die Propyläen wurden kein Erfolg und für den Verleger COTTA, der GOETHE erstmals an seinen Verlag binden konnte, „ein riesiges Verlustgeschäft, von den 1000 Exemplaren wurden nur 54 abgesetzt“ (Unseld S.313). Lt Fischer (Cotta-Bibliogr.) betrug die Auflagenhöhe von Bd.1 u. 2 je 1500 Exemplare, 275 bzw. 425 davon wurden 1812 makuliert; von den beiden Heften von Bd.3 wurden nur je 750 Exemplare gedruckt.

Afm. ca. 27 x 18,5 cm.Van Heurn schilderde en tekende vermoedelijk uit liefhebberij bloemen en stillevens, ze werkte o.a. naar de bloemschilder Gerard van Spaendonck (1765-1822).

Menig kunstenaar heeft sinds de 17de eeuw de zo geliefde en bewonderde tulp in portret en stillevens vastgelegd.Prijs: Euro 950,-.

        The book-case of knowledge

      London: Pr. for J. Wallis by J. Cundee & T. Gillet, 1800/01. 16mo (case: 17.3 cm, 6.75"; books: approx. 9.8 cm, 3.9"). 10 vols. I: Frontis., 64 pp. II: Frontis., 63, [1] pp.; 4 plts. III: Frontis., 64 pp.; 1 plt. IV: Frontis., 64 pp. V: Frontis., 64 pp.; illus. VI: Frontis., 64 pp. VII: Frontis., 62, [2] pp. VIII: Frontis., 63, [1] pp. IX: Frontis., 32 pp.; 15 plts. X: Frontis., 32, 32 pp. Delightful collection of 10 petite but edifying volumes for children, housed in => the original wooden "bookcase" cabinet-styled box, with a sliding front panel and a drawer containing 26 wooden alphabet tiles. The wooden box is in imitation of a Georgian-style "broken pediment" bookcase with the sliding panel offering a color-printed imitation of a glass-fronted bookcase, including books behind the glass and interior draperies that are pulled partially up.    Wallis's library for youth contains the following titles: A Compendium of Simple Arithmetic (cover label: Arithmetick); A Familiar Introduction to Botany; Geography and Astronomy Familiarized for Youth of Both Sexes; Short and Easy Rules for Attaining a Knowledge of English Grammar (Grammar and Letters); The History of England from the Conquest to the Death of George II; British Heroism; or Biographical Memoirs of Some of Those Renowned Commanders, Who Have Extended the Glory of the British Nation to the Remotest Parts of the World (Lives of British Heroes); Rewards for Attentive Studies or, Stories Moral and Entertaining (Moral Tales); Mythology, or Fabulous Histories of the Heathen Deities; A Natural History of Birds and Beasts: Shewing the Character and Properties of Each Animal; and Scripture History; Or, a Brief Account of the Old and New Testament. This is the library's => first appearance; the volumes included seem to have varied somewhat in subsequent versions, and even in some recorded instances of the 1800 production. => Complete sets in the original case are vanishingly uncommon, with no U.S. institutions reporting holding all the books plus case plus tiles.    Illustration: There are a total of => 30 plates in the ten-volume set. The copper-engraved frontispiece and four plates in Botany have been => neatly and attractively hand-colored (certainly not by a childish hand), as have the frontispiece map in Geography and Astronomy and the thumbnail portraits in History of England.    The cataloguer at UCLA used the title Wallis's library for youth and said "Title supplied from Quaritch's Catalogue no. 578, p. 10. The same ten volumes were published in 1801 in a collection with the title: The book-case of knowledge."    Provenance: First, third, and sixth volumes (Arithmetick, Geography, and Lives of British Heroes) with printed paper label on front pastedowns, reading "From Grosvenor's Toy Rooms, No. 303, Holborn"; second volume (Botany) with same label on front free endpapers.    Searches of WorldCat for Bookcase of Knowledge and for Wallis's Library for Youth find only one complete set (at UCLA).         NSTC B3604 (listing second ed. only); Welsh 1453 (British Heroism), 5202 (Mythology), 6373 (Grammar). Case as above, lightly worn overall; right side panel pulling away from the base slightly and the drawer pull lacking,with interior rose paper lining chipped but present. Volumes in publisher's paper-covered boards in blue, cream, rose, yellow, and tan, with printed paper labels on front covers; bindings rubbed and darkened with varying degrees of dust-soiling and a few labels scuffed. Alphabet tiles with two Vs present, lacking X; mildly rubbed with a few darkened, one stained. Geography lacking front free endpaper, with pencilled marks of emphasis to first few pages; Moral Tales with pencilled doodle on front free endpaper. Scripture History with sewing starting to pull at front hinge (inside) and short tear to inner portion of front pastedown. => A very pleasing example of the complete collection, in a sturdy and unbroken case with finials and drawer present, and with the virtually never-seen alphabet tiles.

        The Annual Necrology for 1797–8.

      London: Printed for R. Phillips,, 1800. Including, also, Various Articles of Neglected Biography. Vol. I. Octavo. Contemporary blue paper spine, preserving original printed paper title label, original grey boards, edges untrimmed. Folding plate facsimile of handwriting. Contemporary bookplate to front pastedown. Wear to extremities, first gathering slightly shaken, a couple of leaves unopened, yellow silk page marker pinned to front pastedown, faint pencil notation to margins of contents list; a good copy. First edition, and sole volume, of this ambitious project to record obituaries of notable persons on an annual basis. The most significant memoir recorded here is the 49 page obituary of Mary Wollstonecraft by the feminist biographer Mary Hays (1759–1843). Hays received a copy of Wollstonecraft's Vindication of the Rights of Woman upon its publication in 1792, and was extremely motivated by its contents; she contacted the publishers and arranged a meeting with Wollstonecraft, becoming involved in London's radical Jacobin circles. Hays had written her own radical work, an Appeal to the Men of Great Britain in behalf of Women (1798), written at the same time as Wollstonecraft's Vindication, although not published for a further six years. In it Hays "joins Wollstonecraft in advising women to throw off their shackles by educating themselves rationally so that they realise their potential as the intellectual equals of men" (ODNB). Hays tended to Wollstonecraft on her deathbed, and upon Wollstonecraft's premature death in September 1797 wrote her obituary in the Monthly Review. The extended essay included here provides a less eulogistic analysis of Wollstonecraft's life whilst maintaining its political slant, describing women as "the victims of vice and superstition". Hays created a significant six volume biographical dictionary of 294 impressive women, her Female Biography (1803), in which Wollstonecraft was not included, making this a valuable and rare repository of material. Other notable obituaries included are those for Catharine II, Edmund Burke, and Antoine Lavoisier.

The 60 finely handcoloured plates show different occupations (largely craftsmen and street vendors) and include depictions of a barber, a bookseller, a pedlar, a shoemaker, a lady of distinction in her habit of ceremony, a carpenter, a puppet show, a woman embroidering, and many more. "Mason identified the author of the images in his book as the Chinese artist Pu Qua (active late 18th century). He probably purchased Pu Qua s paintings when, as a professional soldier, he stayed in Canton around 1790. In specifically naming the artist, Mason not only declared his role as patron and as a person with access to a faraway land, he also assured his readers that these images were credible accounts of China as seen by a Chinese" (Ten Doesschate Chu). "Mason's books are interesting, not simply as instantiations of particular illustrative scenes, but as collective documents that organize for their readers an entire typology of China, what Mason's preface to The Costume of China refers to as the "domestic and mechanical habits of an original and remote nations" (Hayot, p. 65). The first edition can be recognized by the fact the type for "costume/costumes" and "sixty engravings/soixante gravures" used on the title-pages is hollow type, as in this copy. It contains text leaves on paper watermarked 1794, 1796, 1797; plates on paper watermarked 1796, 1797, and tissue-guards watermarked 1800. The 1800 edition with "costume/costumes" and "sixty engravings/soixante gravures" in solid type on the title-pages is in fact post-1800 and contains plates printed on paper watermarked 1821 and 1823. Binding slightly used, plate 48 a bit loosening, the usual offset mostly on tissue-guards, some marginal soiling, gently age-browned. A wide-margined copy of the first costume book published by Miller and one of the most popular works on China in early 19th-century Europe. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Ausführliche Nachricht von der Octroyrten Königlich Preußichen Asiatischen Compagnie in Emden nach Canton in China.Emden, [Johann?] Brantgumm, 1751. 4to. Disbound.

      Bergér, Überseeische Handelsbestrebungen und koloniale Pläne unter Friedrich dem Grossen, p. 45; Howgego, to 1800, P159; Ring, Asiatische Handlungscompagnien Friedrichs des Grossen, pp. 87-89; Schui, Early debates about industry, pp. 64-65; WorldCat (3 copies). Rare Emden-printed pamphlet advertising the creation of the Royal Prussian Asiatic Trading Company. The company was formed in 1751 by a consortium of Dutch, Flemish and German financiers and granted a charter by King Frederick the Great of Prussia for a monopoly of trade between Prussia and China. The pamphlet, published in June 1751 to attract buyers of the advertised 200 shares, states that before the end of the year, two ships will have departed for China and all ships would be insured with respectable foreign insurers. Since the British government opposed the creation of the company and searched one of the first vessels to leave Emden and removed all British sailors onboard, this was an important guarantee for would be investors. Although the Emden company was successful, its business was destroyed after the occupation of Emden by French troops in 1757.With 18th-century manuscript number in the upper outside corner of the title-page, and with an additional name added by a contemporary hand to the list of directors of the Company on p. 8. Although disbound, the folds of the two quires remain undamaged. Part of the sewing has come loose, so that bifolia A2.3 and B2.3 are detached. Very slightly browned, but otherwise in fine condition and only slightly trimmed.

        The book-case of knowledge.

      Pr. for J. Wallis by J. Cundee & T. Gillet. Delightful collection of 10 petite but edifying volumes for children, housed in => the original wooden "bookcase" cabinet-styled box, with a sliding front panel and a drawer containing 26 wooden alphabet tiles. The wooden box is in imitation of a Georgian-style "broken pediment" bookcase with the sliding panel offering a color-printed imitation of a glass-fronted bookcase, including books behind the glass and interior draperies that are pulled partially up. Wallis's library for youth contains the following titles: A Compendium of Simple Arithmetic (cover label: Arithmetick); A Familiar Introduction to Botany; Geography and Astronomy Familiarized for Youth of Both Sexes; Short and Easy Rules for Attaining a Knowledge of English Grammar (Grammar and Letters); The History of England from the Conquest to the Death of George II; British Heroism; or Biographical Memoirs of Some of Those Renowned Commanders, Who Have Extended the Glory of the British Nation to the Remotest Parts of the World (Lives of British Heroes); Rewards for Attentive Studies or, Stories Moral and Entertaining (Moral Tales); Mythology, or Fabulous Histories of the Heathen Deities; A Natural History of Birds and Beasts: Shewing the Character and Properties of Each Animal; and Scripture History; Or, a Brief Account of the Old and New Testament. This is the library's => first appearance; the volumes included seem to have varied somewhat in subsequent versions, and even in some recorded instances of the 1800 production. => Complete sets in the original case are vanishingly uncommon, with no U.S. institutions reporting holding all the books plus case plus tiles. Illustration: There are a total of => 30 plates in the ten-volume set. The copper-engraved frontispiece and four plates in Botany have been => neatly and attractively hand-colored (certainly not by a childish hand), as have the frontispiece map in Geography and Astronomy and the thumbnail portraits in History of England. The cataloguer at UCLA used the title Wallis's library for youth and said "Title supplied from Quaritch's Catalogue no. 578, p. 10. The same ten volumes were published in 1801 in a collection with the title: The book-case of knowledge." Provenance: First, third, and sixth volumes (Arithmetick, Geography, and Lives of British Heroes) with printed paper label on front pastedowns, reading "From Grosvenor's Toy Rooms, No. 303, Holborn"; second volume (Botany) with same label on front free endpapers. Searches of WorldCat for Bookcase of Knowledge and for Wallis's Library for Youth find only one complete set (at UCLA).

This is a rarely seen set of the two first editions often described as the inaugural event of the Romantic period. The printing of "Lyrical Ballads" constituted an experiment for the two young poets (Wordsworth was 28, Coleridge 26) in the modification of the traditional artificial verse styles in order to capture forceful sincerity and elemental human emotions. Their radical purpose was nothing short of the reformation of poetry by deposing an artificial literary tradition and substituting a new poetics, more in keeping with normal contemporary speech patterns. As Wordsworth explains in the preface to the second edition of 1800, "The principal object, then, which I proposed to myself in these poems was to choose incidents and situations from common life, and to relate or describe them, throughout, as far as was possible, in a selection of language really used by men; and, at the same time, to throw over them a certain colouring of imagination. . . . Low and rustic life was generally chosen, because in that condition, the essential passions of the heart find a better soil in which they can attain their maturity, are less under restraint, and speak a plainer and more emphatic language. . . . [In] that condition our elementary feelings co-exist in a state of greater simplicity . . . [and] the passions of men are incorporated with the beautiful and permanent forms of nature. . . . For all good poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings.'' Folk ballads, as "natural" poetry, formed their models for pieces that reveal a sense of lasting joy in nature and in experiences common to all humans. The volumes contain, among others, "Tintern Abbey," "Lines Written in Early Spring," "We Are Seven," "The Brothers," "Michael," and "The Ancyent Marinere," 10 stanzas of which appear only in this edition.

For five years our binder Francis Bedford (1799-1883) managed the firm of Charles Lewis for the latter's widow and then was in a partnership for 10 years with John Clarke before establishing his own bindery in 1851. He shortly became recognized as the leading binder in fashionable West-end London, and his firm enjoyed prosperity not only until his death, but for 10 years afterwards, under the ownership of Joseph Shepherd. Bedford bindings are almost always elegantly traditional in their design. This set was once owned by the extraordinarily discriminating American collector H. Bradley Martin (1906-88); his copy of any book will always be distinguished as having been a part of a library chosen by one of the most discerning of modern collectors. The heir to a steel fortune and a director at a leading New York investment bank, Martin was a member of the Grolier Club for 50 years and was one of the great American book collectors of the 20th century. His library of 10,000 volumes was sold at Sotheby's in nine sales during 1989-90; these volumes appeared in that sale as Lot 3333.

For five years our binder Francis Bedford (1799-1883) managed the firm of Charles Lewis for the latter's widow and then was in a partnership for 10 years with John Clarke before establishing his own bindery in 1851. He shortly became recognized as the leading binder in fashionable West-end London, and his firm enjoyed prosperity not only until his death, but for 10 years afterwards, under the ownership of Joseph Shepherd. Bedford bindings are almost always elegantly traditional in their design. This set was once owned by the extraordinarily discriminating American collector H. Bradley Martin (1906-88); his copy of any book will always be distinguished as having been a part of a library chosen by one of the most discerning of modern collectors. The heir to a steel fortune and a director at a leading New York investment bank, Martin was a member of the Grolier Club for 50 years and was one of the great American book collectors of the 20th century. His library of 10,000 volumes was sold at Sotheby's in nine sales during 1989-90; these volumes appeared in that sale as Lot 3333. Former owner Harold Greenhill (1893-1968) was a Chicago book collector, active in the Caxton and Grolier Clubs. These works are uncommon in general, and handsomely bound, choice copies like the present set are exceedingly hard to find.

        AN ACCOUNT OF THE TRIAL OF THOMAS COOPER, OF NORTHUMBERLAND; ON A CHARGE OF LIBEL AGAINST THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES...

      Philadelphia: John Bioren, 1800. 64pp. Recent half morocco and cloth. Institutional ink and blind stamps on titlepage, blinds stamps to initial leaves. Light foxing and tanning. Good plus. A scarce pamphlet that gives an account of libel proceedings against Thomas Cooper, compiled and introduced by the defendant himself, who was brought to trial in 1800 under the Sedition Act for his published attacks on John Adams. Cooper was one of a number of men heavily involved in the publication of Republican newspapers targeted for libel trials by Federalists under the controversial law. The charges stemmed principally from articles critical of the Adams administration published in the Northumberland GAZETTE and the Philadelphia AURORA, as well as his POLITICAL ESSAYS. On account of his publishing practices, by the time of the election of 1800 Cooper was considered a serious, and, for the Federalists, a dangerous political figure. He was eventually convicted. Because the work was orchestrated by Cooper, the pamphlet is not simply an account of the trial, but also a further attack against his enemies and a statement against the suppression of political dissent. "The ACCOUNT is fascinating not only because it exposed the manner in which a Federalist judiciary enforced the sedition laws against its Republican opponents, but also because it revealed Thomas Cooper's willingness to exploit his own arrest for political gain. In all likelihood, Cooper published the annotated account of his trial not to salvage his own reputation, but rather to imbue his persecution with political significance.... Cooper skillfully framed the upcoming election as a referendum on the Sedition Act and on American citizens' right to engage in political debate rather than as a contest between two political parties and their ideologies" - Lehman. A vital work, both for its account of an important trial stemming from the Sedition Act, and for its reflection of the American political atmosphere at the outset of the 19th century. Rare on the market, with no copies appearing in auction records. EVANS 37249. SABIN 16608. Forrest K.

        [THE SINKING OF THE REBEL RAIDER C.S.S. ALABAMA BY THE U.S.S. KEARSARGE OFF THE FRENCH COAST IN JUNE, 1864]

      [N.p., 1800. Watercolor and gouache on board, 21 1/2 x 29 1/4 inches. Minor edge wear, a bit of mild surface soiling. Overall, very good. Handsomely framed in period style. A wonderfully accomplished naval painting of the U.S.S. Kearsarge and the sinking of the Confederate warship and raiding vessel, C.S.S. Alabama, off the French coast in 1864. The Battle of Cherbourg, as it was known, was one of the more unusual incidents of the Civil War. The C.S.S. Alabama, a swift and well-armed vessel, had done tremendous to commerce by the Union by attacking American commercial vessels around the world. After almost two years of harassment, the union was anxious to eliminate the rebel raiding ship. In June 1864, the Federal sloop-of-war U.S.S. Kearsarge, commanded by Capt. John Winslow, tracked the C.S.S. Alabama under the command of Capt. Raphael Semmes across the Atlantic, and trapped the ship in the French port of Cherbourg where it had docked for repairs. With nowhere to escape, Semmes challenged the Union sloop to a ship-to- ship duel, which Winslow accepted. On June 19, 1864, the Alabama was escorted into international waters by a French ironclad, and in the ensuing battle was sunk by the Kearsarge. The surviving Confederate sailors were rescued by the Union ship and an amalgamation of French and English boats. Those picked up by the English were taken to Southampton and evaded capture. Thousands of French spectators gathered on the heights above Cherbourg to watch the battle. The most famous painting of the battle was made by Edouard Manet and now hangs in the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Though no Manet, the present example is still a skillful and striking depiction of an important American naval battle. Provenance: Kennedy Galleries, New York; Dietrich Collection, Philadelphia.

        PARTIALLY PRINTED DOCUMENT: A BAGGAGE ENTRY DECLARATION SIGNED 3 TIMES by the powerful New Orleans businessman BEVERLY CHEW, importing 2 trunks purportedly containing personal "wearing apparel" to a port in the District of Philadelphia on board the ship "Snow Experiment". Additionally endorsed and docketed by his mentor, the Philadelphia merchant Daniel William Coxe.

      District of Philadelphia, June 6th, 1800., 1800.. Fair. - A 13-1/4 inch high by 8-3/8 inch wide "Baggage Entry" declaration, printed by John Bioren for the Philadelphia ship broker Samuel Emery. The partially printed "baggage entry" document declares an "Entry made by Beverly Chew of Fredericksburg, Virginia bieing the Property of himself imported in the Snow Experiment, whereof is Master Edward Killey from Port Passage". The contents are identified as "Two trunks containing wearing apparel". Chew further signs within the text affirming that the baggage entering the "District of Philadelphia" "contains, to the best of my Knowledge and Belief, a just and true Account of the Contents of the two trunks mentioned herien, imported in the Snow Experiment...." The document is finally signed by Chew on "this 6th day of June 1800". The baggage entry document is further docketed and signed on the verso by Daniel W. Coxe, under whom Chew apprenticed in Philadelphia. The buff paper is toned with creases, offsetting and darkening to the edges and corners. The document is folded three times horizontally with short tears along the edges of the folds and with several chips and tears along the bottom edge and a small piece chipped out from the bottom right corner. The New Orleans businessman, political appointee and purported smuggler Beverly Chew (1773-1851) was born in Spotsylvania County, Virginia and apprenticed with Philadelphia merchant Daniel William Coxe and his associates. During this time, Chew also learned about financial dealings from William Dunbar, the Natchez plantation owner who moved cotton through Coxe's firm. Moving to New Orleans, Chew partnered with Richard Relf. For a spell the firm of Chew & Relf controlled the larger part of the banking, shipping, trading and insurance business of early New Orleans commerce and were key players in the smuggling "business" of the city. A distant cousin of President Thomas Jefferson and also related to William C.C. Clairborne, Mississippi's territorial governor, Chew sought and gained political appointments. Initially as a justice of the Court of Common Pleas at New Orleans and then as New Orleans' first postmaster. Barred by New Orleans' City Council from importing slaves from the West Indies into the US, Chew smuggled them instead through the Bayou LaFourche. Chew continued in that same vein using contacts with Spanish officials after Federal Law outlawed the importation of African slaves in 1808. Chew had deep ties with British business interests when President Madison appointed him as New Orleans vice consul for Russia in 1812, tasking him to handle trade reciprocity between the two countries. Given that Chew & Relf's hands were in so many pockets, it's not surprising that their business suffered few losses from the British blockade of American ports during the War of 1812. Chew subsequently took up arms as a rifleman under General Andrew Jackson during the Battle of New Orleans which followed the British invasion of Louisiana in 1814. As early as 1809, the notorious pirates & privateers Jean & Pierre Lafitte were cutting into Chew & Relf's smuggling profits and businesses. The Lafitte brothers and Baratarian pirates had received presidential pardons for their assistance during the War of 1812. Appointed customs collector in 1816, Beverly Chew struck back, implementing and arguing for anti-smuggling laws and taking action against the Lafitte brothers while furthering his own smuggling operations. The privateers were finally pressured into leaving their base at Galveston in 1822 following diplomatic negotiations with Commodore Daniel Patterson and the Lafitte brothers were given safe conduct passes away from Louisiana. Chew profited from his position as port customs collector for 12 years until President Andrew Jackson replaced him in 1829. Though still president of a bank and with other business interests still providing income, Chew turned bitter against President Jackson's actions and was further brought down when his past caught up to him in the form of a lawsuit over Daniel Clark's will which made it all the way to the Supreme Court. When Chew & Relf's backer Daniel Clark died following an illness back in 1813, a second will mysteriously vanished, leaving Chew & Relf as co-executors of his estate with Clark's mother named as beneficiary. Somehow, after Chew & Relf were done, they claimed that no money was left once they'd paid off Clark's debts and expenses though no formal accounting was provided. The "missing" will had named Clark's daughter Myra Clark Gaines as beneficiary with different executors. The lawsuit became one of the longest-running in history and drained Chew's financial resources leaving little in his estate upon his death.Much of the Chew biographical information was found in a scholarly article published by Historiaobscura: "Beverly Chew: The Man Behind the Curtain in Early New Orleans" by Pam Keyes.Chew autographs are rare in commerce.
