Very large folding etched plate of the Greek inscription on the Rosetta stone. 4to. Uncut in fine contemporary decorative wrappers, spine repaired, with original paper label. [iv], 121pp. Paris, A bright, clean copy of one of the first translations of the 54 lines of Greek inscriptions on the Rosetta Stone, which was discovered by a soldier among the ruins of Fort St. Julien in 1799. 'Citizen' Ameilhon (1730-1811), as he is described on the title page, was a noted historian and bibliophile, who was director of the Biliotheque de l'Arsenal when he completed the translation. At the outset of the Revolution, Ameilhon was appointed to the 'Commission pour la conservation des monuments des arts et des sciences'. He subsequently managed to persuade the authorities to preserve the books confiscated in the name of the people, thereby saving in the region of 800,000 volumes from destruction.

         Louisiana Purchase

      November 5, 1803. Newspaper: A rare front page printing of the Louisiana Purchase Treaty in the Providence Phoenix, Saturday, November 5,1803 (William W. Dunham) Vol. II - No. 78, 4 pages, 11.5" x 18". Usual folds, toning and minor marginal wear.

Titled "Louisiana Treaty", this unusual front page printing of the treaty celebrates the news of its ratification in the Senate on October 20, 1803 by a vote of 24 to 7: "We congratulate our fellow-citizens on the prompt approbation given by the Senate to this important Act. The treaty, as advised to be ratified by the Senate, and which we have no doubt will in a short time receive the final ratification of the President of the United States." The full printing of the treaty, unusually placed on the front page that was normally reserved for advertisements, was printed only two months before the final transfer of sovereignty over the vast new territory. Signed in Print "BARBE MARBOIS. ROB. R. LIVINGSTON, JAS. MONROE --"

The Treaty together with two accompanying conventions consume three columns on page one together with two more on page two. The balance of page two covers happenings in the House of Representatives from October 18 - 22. On the latter day, "The President communicated by Message to the House, the ratified Louisiana Treaty. it was referred to a committee of the whole House. Mr. Randolph offered a resolution making provision for carrying the treaty into effect." The same day, "the committee to whom were transferred two resolutions proposing amendments to the constitution of the United States relative to the election of the President and Vice President, have according to order, had the same under consideration, and beg leave to submit the following report…" offering the text of what became the Twelfth Amendment.

         Tratado de artilleria que se enseña en el Real Colegio Militar de Segovia. Escrito por el Excmo Sr. D. Thomas de Morla, del Consejo de Estado, Teniente General de los Reales Exercitos.

Ballester', 'F[ernando]. Selma' y 'J[uan]. Moreno [Tejada]'.- // Encuadernación muy fatigada en plena piel. Primeras y últimas hojas afectadas de moho antiguo (eliminado) con márgenes frágiles. Cerco de humedad antiguo en margen superior y exterior de las láminas, entrando en las huellas, sin afectar a las figuras; lám. 4 de art. XII con manchas; doce últimas láminas con los márgenes en mal estado. Ejemplar pobre, pero bien completo de todos los grabados. Las lagunas en su numeración, que las hay, se deben a que esos grabados nunca se estamparon, como así se indica en el propio índice del volumen.- // Proc.: Sin datos.- // Refs.: Aguilar Piñal, XVIII, 5, 5988, para Láminas., y 10, 4702, para la Colección.- // El que fuera Gobernador civil de Cádiz y Capitán general de Andalucía, aclamado al inicio de la Guerra de la Independencia por sus victorias sobre las tropas de Napoleón en la célebre batalla de Bailén y en la defensa de Cádiz, y denostado después por entrar a las órdenes de José Bonaparte, Tomás de Morla(1), había impreso en Segovia, entre 1784 y1786 un Tratado de artilleria para el uso de la Academia de caballeros cadetes del Real Cuerpo de Artillería, dividido en quatro tomos, que tratan de las principales funciones de los Oficiales de este Cuerpo en Paz, y en Guerra del que el tercer tomo estaba escrito en realidad por Vicente de los Ríos, siendo el cuarto proyectado esta colección de láminas. Sin embargo, la impresión de las láminas se demoró y los tres tomos de texto que se habían impreso se guardaron en su espera. Finalmente, como pasaba demasiado tiempo, se pusieron en circulación en 1792, acompañados de un tomo titulado Láminas pertenecientes al articulo XII de minas, y a los seis articulos de la segunda parte del Tratado de Artilleria que se enseña en el Real Colegio Militar de Segovia, que había impreso la viuda de Ibarra en Madrid, que reunía 21 láminas. Morla pretendía así darse tiempo para terminar de revisar el resto de las láminas, preparar algunas tablas y revisar el texto de la obra para modificarlo con avances procedentes de la química y de sus recientes viajes por Europa. Entrado ya el siglo XIX Morla se dio cuenta de que no podía asumir preparar esa segunda ediciónni de escribir la explicación de las láminas, que ya estaban grabadas. De se modo, en 1803 se publicó, por fin, casi veinte años después de impresa la obra, once más tarde de que se difundiera el texto, el tomo de láminas que ofrecemos. En él, tenían que haberse incluido 131 láminas, pero, como se señala en el índice impreso que las precede, 12 de ellas, referidas a carruajes, utensilios y montajes que habían quedado en desuso, ni se grabaron ni se incluyeron nunca en la obra. En 1816, fallecido Morla, volvió a imprimirse, de nuevo en Segovia, el tratado de artillería, sin el tomo de láminas y acompañado de un denominado volumen V, de explicaciones de las láminas, que había dejado escritas Francisco de Dátoli antes de la guerra y se ignora quién completo(2).- // (1) Sobre Morla, puede verse María Dolores Herrero Fernández-Quesada: Ciencia y milicia en el siglo XVIII.

         Portrait of Joseph Ritson.

      - London: H. Humphrey, 22 March 1803. Etching, engraving and aquatint on thin grey surfaced or prepared paper, platemark 272 x 207 mm, sheet size 306 x 221 mm, tipped to white backing sheet and mounted. An extraordinary satirical portrait of the eccentric author and vegetarian Joseph Ritson. He stands at his desk writing in a large book headed "Common Place". His finger and toe nails are talons; he dips his pen into an ink-stand inscribed "Gall", and has written "Moses an Imposter the prophets old Cloaths Men of Judaea Warburton a fool Dr Percy a Liar Warton an infamous Liar a pipeer better than a parson". From hispocket projects a pamphlet "The Atheist's pocket Companion". He stands on a slab of damaged papers headed "Dr Percy's Antient Balla[ds]"; in front of him is large open book with a portrait of Thomas Warton stabbed through with a knife and fork. The room is filled with large folio volumes and vegetable products, with a cow munching at a basket of leaves beside a paper "Bill of Fare / Nettle Soup / Sour Crout / Horse Beans / Onions Leeks"; an emaciated and chained cat crouches on the top shelf besidea book "Abstinence from animal food a moral duty"; and a frog squats on the desk. Below the image are Latin, Greek and English quotes."Ritson the antiquary (1752 - 23 September 1803) was sinking from morose or savage eccentricity to insanity. Since reading Mandeville's Fables of the Bees in 1772 he had lived on milk and vegetable. The scene must represent his chambers in Gray's Inn where (Sept. 1803) he burnt many manuscripts. He disregarded the decencies of literary controversy, and attacked (1782) Warton's History of English Poetry. His ownSelect Collection of English Songs (1783) was marred by attacks on the Reliques of Percy whom he again assailed in 1792. In 1793 he adopted the French republican calendar and declared himself an atheist. Sayers's figure was copied for the only [other] two portraits of Ritson, three-quarter length and half length" - M. Dorothy George, Catalogue of Political and Personal Satires in the British Museum.

         Female Biography; or, Memoirs of Illustrious and Celebrated Women, of All Ages and Countries

      London: Richard Phillips, 1803. First edition of this important work of feminist historiography by English radical Mary Hays. Active in the Jacobin circles of William Godwin and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Hays was particularly influenced by Mary Wollstonecraft's Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), which inspired Hays to leave home and live independently, supporting herself through her writing as Wollstonecraft did. In Female Biography, an ambitious popular history covering thousands of years, Hays encourages women readers to reflect on their current disenfranchised status: "My pen has been taken up in the cause, and for the benefit, of my own sex." She pays particular attention to the lives of women rulers (Cleopatra, Boadicea, Elizabeth I, Christina of Sweden, Catherine the Great), and artists (Sappho, Artemisia Gentileschi, Madame de la Fayette, Anne Bradstreet, Aphra Behn), pointedly including rebellious women alongside the more traditionally virtuous. In many cases, Hays recasts the received historical narrative, emphasizing the prejudices her subjects faced, as in the case of the Protestant martyr Anne Askew: "The sex and age of the heretic aggravated, rather than softened, the malice of her adversaries, who could not pardon in a woman the presumption of opposing arguments and reason." A near-fine example, in handsome contemporary bindings. Six twelvemo volumes. Contemporary full tree calf; boards ornamentally ruled in gilt; red and black morocco spine labels lettered in gilt; spines ornamented, ruled, and lettered in gilt; marbled endpapers. Volume I irregularly paginated (as issued, collated complete), four pages of advertisements at rear of volume VI. Contemporary ink ownership signature of Mary Marriott on third fly leaf of all volumes except V. Light shelfwear and occasional spotting to bindings, some joints repaired.

In 8vo; pp.8n.nn.,267,5n.nn. con indice. Vignetta al frontespizio raffigurante una "Gramola per le Patate". In fine tavola più volte spieghevole raffigurante il "fornello per uso delle Suppe Economiche d'invenzione di D.Giuseppe Morina". Brunit. Cart. post. Dalla dedica a Giovanni Acton: "Offriamo a V.E. nella presente collezione un saggio del nostro zelo nella stimabile commissione addossataci per lo sollievo de' poveri nelle Provincie. Nell'eseguirla è ognun di noi penetrato dal dolce sentimento di contribuire al bene de' suoi simili a sovvenirgli ne' loro bisogni ad indicare i mezzi da ripararli e prevenirli per lo avvenire. Queste idee ci han risvegliato il pensiero di riunire insieme per lo comodo generale ciò che di più interessante è stato sparsamente scritto intorno agli usi, vantaggi, e coltivazione delle patate. Ha ciò per oggetto il familiarizzare nel Regno le cognizioni di un ramo di agricoltura tendente ad una risorta di abbondanza per tutt'i tempi... L'esempio della Irlanda e della Francia salvate dalla penuria in due diversi rincontri col mezzo delle patate: le scoverte fatte e intorno alla salubrità di questo prodotto, ed alla molteplicità dei suoi usi per gli oggetti di sussistenza e di economia: le applicazioni fattene per lo più sano e meno dispendioso alimento de' poveri e per la nutrizione di ogni specie di animali domestici a noi preziosi". Rara raccolta di opere riguardanti le patate: La composizione della suppa economica giunta il metodo adottato in Napoli; Il pomo di terra, articolo estratto dal corso di agricoltura dell'Abate Rozier; Articolo estratto dal Dizionario Universale Economico stampato in Roma nel 1795: farina di patate, pane di patate, il tempo per la piantazione, il modo di cucinarle; Memoria dell'Abate Occhiolini: l'introduzione fatta in Roma delle patate, esperienza nel cuocere le patate; Ragionamento del Sig. Filippo Bandini sui pomi di terra; Della coltivazione ed uso delle patate di Carlo Amoretti; Lettera sul pane di patate e farina di grano di Gaspare Sella.

         Risposta alli Schiarimenti dati dalla delegazione Governativa sul fiume Reno ? La presente Scrittura è Opera del Cittadino Dr. Teodoro Bonatti (sic) Prof. in Ferrara 1803

      , 0 - Manoscritto cartaceo in folio (mm 330x220) di carte 10, composte da un bifolio, che funge da copertina e reca il titolo, e da 17 pagine di testo. Ottima copia. Si tratta di un Parere richiesto al Bonati, uno dei più stimati Idraulici dell'epoca, sulla Vexata quaestio dell'immissione del fiume Panaro in Po. Il committente è il Condelegato Cittadino Costabili, Consultore di Stato, che poi farà pubblicare a proprio nome la Risposta in: "Opuscoli idraulici di T.Bonati, V. Brunacci, G. Morri, ecc.", Bologna, 1829 (pp. 230-242). Il manoscritto è con ogni probabilità autografo, è cioè la copia che il Bonati trattenne per sé affidando la stesura dell'altra ad un segretario. Il Bonati ideò l'Asta Idrometrica e pubblicò fra gli altri un importantissimo saggio dal titolo: Saggio sopra una nuova teoria del movimento delle acque pei fiumi, Pavia, 1785.

Questo Ordine Equestre fu costituito, secondo la tradizione, dall'Imperatore Costantino (Naissus, 27 febbraio 274 - Nicomedia, 22 maggio 337) dopo l'apparizione della Santa Croce a Saxa Rubra.
