         Voyage à l'Ouest des Monts Alléghanys, dans les états de l'Ohio du Kentucky et du Tennessée, et retour à Charleston par les Hautes-Carolines; contenant des détails sur l'état actuel de l'agriculture.ainsi que des renseigmenets sur les rapports commerciaux qui existent entre ces états et ceux situés à l'est des montagnes et la Basse-Louuisiane, etc

      1804 - First edition. Half title, large folding engraved map dated 1804. 8vo. Contemporary calf-backed paper old boards, ms. annotations in pencil. [4], vi, 312p. Paris, Levrault, Schoell et Compagnie, de l'imprimerie de Crapelet, An XII - An English translation by Lambert appeared in 1805. ?The zest with which Michaux describes some of the wonders of the West in this brief and discursive journal is as pleasant as his intelligent discussion of economical facts, and puritan domesticity in the East. He gave his countrymen a correct and impressive idea of the products and promise of the great West, but more especially of Ohio and Kentucky? (Thomson). Michaux (1770-1850) was a French botanist and silviculturalist, long resident in the USA. On the half title is a very interesting note in ink: 'les notes au crayon qui sont dans cet exemplaire sont de M. de la Haye habitant a St. Domingue. et notaire au port de paix [in Haiti], refugié à qu'il a habité longtemps. Mer a ecrite[sic] pour moi à Paris'. A M. l'abbé de la Haye is described as priest at Dondon, again in Haiti, in Moreau de St. Méry, Loix et constitutions des colonies françaises de l'Amérique sous le vent, Paris, [1784] i, xxiv, and this may indicate that the family was established there. The pencilled notes (which are faint) are mainly on 3, 8, 10, 45, 71pp. 76-77 and again at p. 87, with a few elsewhere, but there are small crosses marking paragra[hs through the rest of the volume. That on page 10 concerns the burning of coal in Charleston imported from England : ' Ce n'est pas pour l'économie, c'est pour luxe, car on n'en fait usage que dans la Drawing Room' (This is not done for economy but for luxury, as it is only made use of in the Drawing Room'). The two long notes on pp.76 and 77 concern the use of the river in Ohio. Michaux (p. 77) writes that people abandon themselves 'au fil de l'eau' without knowing whjere they weill stop. The annotator writes that they do not abandon themlves but make use of a large steering oar or rudder'. Provenance: at foot of the spine are the letters S.M. Sabin, 48703; MacPhail, 4; Thomson, 822; Goldsmiths'-Kress library of economic literature, no. 18816.12. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

The plates by William Alexander include a view of the Imperial Summer Palace at Yehol, some architectural studies and musical instruments, as well as a portrait-frontispiece of a certain Van-ta-gin (Wang Wenxiung). Of the latter Barrow gives the following account: ?The two officers that were sent from court. paid a visit to every yacht, and shewed the most earnest desire to please and to make us comfortable. Their names were Van and Chou, to which they annexed the title of Ta-gin, or great man. We observed in their manners no indication of that stiff and ceremonious conduct, which custom obliges them to put on in public. On the contrary, they sat down to table with us, endeavouring to learn the use of knife and fork, and made themselves extremely agreeable; lamented that they were not able to hold conversation with us in our own language; and on going away , shook hands with us like Englishmen.?

[COMPLETE IN FIVE VOLUMES] London: Printed for Richard Phillips, 1804-1807. First Edition. John Marshall (September 24, 1755 - July 6, 1835) was the fourth Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States (1801-1835). Marshall greatly admired George Washington, and between 1804 and 1807 published this influential five-volume biography. Marshall's Life of Washington was based on records and papers provided to him by the late president's family. The first volume was reissued in 1824 separately as A History of the American Colonies. The work reflected Marshall's Federalist principles. His revised and condensed two-volume Life of Washington was published in 1832. Historians have often praised its accuracy and well-reasoned judgments, while noting his frequent paraphrases of published sources such as William Gordon's 1801 history of the Revolution and the British Annual Register.

         A COMMERCIAL DICTIONARY; CONTAINING THE PRESENT STATE OF MERCANTILE LAW, PRACTICE AND CUSTOM . WITH VERY CONSIDERABLE ADDITIONS RELATIVE TO THE LAWS, USAGES, AND PRACTICE OF THE UNITED STATES

      James Humphreys, Philadelphia 1804 - Three octavo volumes in contemporary tree calf with contrasting morocco spine labels. This scarce set was first published in England in 1803 and published here for the first time in America with much new material added relating to American banking and insurance, including a section on Louisiana and more. Includes a subscribers list of prominent American institutions and businessmen, but not including the American businessman who has SIGNED the top of each of the three front endpapers: Allan Melvill, father of the novelist Herman Melville. Melvill ran an import business and these volumes would have been essential for him. The fact that they show little use is a possible indicator of why he never succeeded and often borrowed money to stay afloat. More than one critic has found the genesis of the character of Ahab in MOBY DICK in Melville's father who became insane before he died. Each volume also bears at the top of the title page the small name label of Herman's brother, Allan Melville, an attorney, to whom the novelist dedicated MARDI. From the collection of the late Jay Fliegelman. Listed as 368a in "A cumulative supplement to Melville's Reading" by Steven Olsen-Smith and Merton M. Sealts, Jr. published in the March 2004 issue of LEVIATHAN, which cites that the set was sold at auction in the fall of 1986. Sabin 50100.

         William Marrison, Tong, near Leeds, Bandage and Truss Maker, to the General Infirmary, at Leeds. His newly-invented patent spine machine and umbilical or navel rupture truss, have been sanctioned by the approbation of many eminent surgeons, both in London and in the country

      Leeds, England: E. Baines (for the Author), 1804. Very good. Handbill. 4to. (235 x 185 mm) with four-line autograph note, signed by Marrison, written at foot of sheet, additional attached leaf blank save for name of recipient “Mr. Adams Newcastle” penned on verso, old folds, verso of address leaf dusty. An impossible survival. This handbill seems to be the only surviving evidence of two ingenious medical inventions by William Marrison of Tong, near Leeds, self-proclaimed “bandage and truss maker to the General Infirmary, Leeds.” Described herein is Marrison's “Truss for the umbilical or navel rupture, upon a new principle, which appears to be superior to any now in use” and a “Machine for the distorted spine, which supports the body indifferent attitiudes of walking, sitting and standing, wheremechanical assistance is required …” The names of leading surgeons in Leeds and London are listed in support of Marrison's inventions. We have been unable to determine if either apparatus was ever manufactured.

         The Bridge at Juonpore, Bengal. Plate 18, hand coloured aquatint, from 'Twenty-four Views in Hindoostan.'

      Sold & Published July 21st 1804 by Edward Orme - H. Merke, Aquatinta. Image size 410 x 296mm, 95mm closed tear to margin & image leaving weak stain. On paper watermarked 'J. Whatman', no date, very good. S1This engraving is based on a picture by Thomas Daniell (1749-94) and depicts the 16th Century bridge crossing the Gomti River at Jaunpur. In 1803 Francis Blagdon said the following about this bridge. 'The sound principles upon which it was built are evident from its having withstood, for such a length of time, the force of the stream, which in the rainy season is very considerable. The inundations have frequently been known to rise even above the bridge, insomuch that in the year 1774, a whole brigade of British Forces passed over it in boats.'

         REPORTS OF CASES ARGUED AND ADJUDGED IN THE SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES.

      Washington, New York & Flatbush. 1804-17. - Nine volumes. Half blue morocco and cloth. Contemporary ownership inscriptions on titlepages of two volumes, institutional stamps on titlepages of all volumes. One titlepage remargined, another repaired with tape. Light tanning and foxing. A very good set. A very rare and important set, here present in first editions throughout. Because of its publication over a period of 14 years in three different cities with three different printers, a complete set is virtually impossible to obtain. The REPORTS give accounts of cases before the Supreme Court from 1801 to 1815, during which time Cranch was reporter of the Court. According to the DAB, "These reports have always been highly regarded for their clarity and accuracy, and are of great importance since they contain a large number of Chief Justice Marshall's most vital opinions on fundamental constitutional problems." These include Marbury vs. Madison, reported in volume one, and probably about 350 cases in total. The reports begin with John Marshall's first term as Chief Justice, and continue through 1815, covering just under one half of Marshall's tenure in charge of the Supreme Court, and therefore contain accounts of many cases fundamental to the power of the court and the manner in which it interpreted the Constitution. The most famous of these is of course Marbury v. Madison, decided in 1803, in which the court ruled that it could not order James Madison as Secretary of State to deliver a commission to William Marbury, invalidating part of the Judiciary Act of 1789, and thereby creating the concept of judicial review that immediately became one of the central functions of the Supreme Court. Rendering the majority opinion in that case, Marshall wrote, "It is emphatically the province and duty of the judicial department to say what the law is. Those who apply the rule to particular cases, must of necessity expound and interpret that rule. If two laws conflict with each other, the courts must decide on the operation of each. The judicial power of the United States extends to all cases arising under the constitution." Other notable cases contained here include Stuart v. Laird, another case related to the Judiciary Act of 1801 and the Midnight Appointments of John Adams, decided just a few weeks after Marbury, which affirmed the ability of Congress to create and abolish lower level federal courts, and which refuted the claim that judicial decisions were enforceable only by the court that made them. An 1804 decision in a case related to maritime shipping during the Quasi War with France, Little v. Barreme, ruled that the President of the United States does not have any power or authority to ignore an act of Congress. The Strawbridge v. Curtiss decision in 1806 established the concept that parties in a federal suit had to be from different states. During this period, the Supreme Court also established its authority to determine the constitutionality of state laws. In the 1813 case Fletcher v. Peck, which arose out the various issues surrounding the Yazoo land claims in Georgia at the end of the 18th century, the court ruled unconstitutional a state law that repealed the act allowing the sale of the Yazoo lands to individuals on that grounds that the original sales represented binding contracts. In this case, Marshall wrote that, "The legislature of Georgia could not revoke a grant once executed. It had no right to declare the law void; that is the exercise of a judicial, not a legislative function. It is the province of the judiciary to say what the law is, or what is was. The legislature can only say what the law shall be." William Cranch, the compiler of the reports, was a distinguished jurist in his own right. Born in Massachusetts, he was the son of Abigail Adams' sister, and a classmate of John Quincy Adams, his cousin, at Harvard.

         Poems by Goldsmith and Parnell

      W. Bulmer & Co., London 1804 - With 5 plates and 8 woodcuts by John & Thomas Bewick. Full contemporary calf, gilt spine, marbled endpapers; other than some minor foxing on preliminaries, an excellent copy with a pencil inscription on fly-leaf "M.S. Slocum, Pasadena" (and a full-page article on Slocum laid in). First octavo edition (preceded by the quarto edition of 1795). This book reveals the technical innovation and creative skill of Bewick, an artist who would radically change the art of book illustration in the next century. Written in two parts, the first includes a biography of Goldsmith plus his two poems, The Traveller and The Deserted village. The second contains a biographical sketch on Parnell, written by Goldsmith, as well as Parnell's poem, The Hermit. The quality of Bewick's engravings was so fine, that at the time of publication, many, including George III, did not believe that the engravings were done on wood, but rather copper.

         REPORTS OF CASES ARGUED AND ADJUDGED IN THE SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES...

      Washington, New York & Flatbush, 1804. Nine volumes. Half blue morocco and cloth. Contemporary ownership inscriptions on titlepages of two volumes, institutional stamps on titlepages of all volumes. One titlepage remargined, another repaired with tape. Light tanning and foxing. A very good set. A very rare and important set, here present in first editions throughout. Because of its publication over a period of 14 years in three different cities with three different printers, a complete set is virtually impossible to obtain. The REPORTS give accounts of cases before the Supreme Court from 1801 to 1815, during which time Cranch was reporter of the Court. According to the DAB, "These reports have always been highly regarded for their clarity and accuracy, and are of great importance since they contain a large number of Chief Justice Marshall's most vital opinions on fundamental constitutional problems." These include Marbury vs. Madison, reported in volume one, and probably about 350 cases in total. The reports begin with John Marshall's first term as Chief Justice, and continue through 1815, covering just under one half of Marshall's tenure in charge of the Supreme Court, and therefore contain accounts of many cases fundamental to the power of the court and the manner in which it interpreted the Constitution. The most famous of these is of course Marbury v. Madison, decided in 1803, in which the court ruled that it could not order James Madison as Secretary of State to deliver a commission to William Marbury, invalidating part of the Judiciary Act of 1789, and thereby creating the concept of judicial review that immediately became one of the central functions of the Supreme Court. Rendering the majority opinion in that case, Marshall wrote, "It is emphatically the province and duty of the judicial department to say what the law is. Those who apply the rule to particular cases, must of necessity expound and interpret that rule. If two laws conflict with each other, the courts must decide on the operation of each.... The judicial power of the United States extends to all cases arising under the constitution." Other notable cases contained here include Stuart v. Laird, another case related to the Judiciary Act of 1801 and the Midnight Appointments of John Adams, decided just a few weeks after Marbury, which affirmed the ability of Congress to create and abolish lower level federal courts, and which refuted the claim that judicial decisions were enforceable only by the court that made them.

His uncle appointed him to the United States district court shortly before leaving the Presidency. Although he was a staunch Federalist, Jefferson made him chief justice of the District of Columbia in 1805, a post he held for the next fifty years. The pressure of his own court work caused Cranch to cease producing Supreme Court reports after publishing his final volume in 1817. The Cranch reports were reprinted in Philadelphia by Carey & Lea in 1830-34, and Sabin cites only that set (the reports have of course been reprinted since in U.S. Reports), while Shaw and Shoemaker cite only the first volume, not noting any of the others. A most important set, basic to the history of the Supreme Court and American constitutional law, containing contemporary accounts of many landmark cases of the Marshall Court, and extremely rare as a complete run of the original edition.

      Leeds, England: E. Baines (for the Author), 1804. Very good. Handbill. 4to. (235 x 185 mm) with four-line autograph note, signed by Marrison, written at foot of sheet, additional attached leaf blank save for name of recipient “Mr. Adams Newcastle” penned on verso, old folds, verso of address leaf dusty. An impossible survival. This handbill seems to be the only surviving evidence of two ingenious medical inventions by William Marrison of Tong, near Leeds, self-proclaimed “bandage and truss maker to the General Infirmary, Leeds.” Described herein is Marrison's “Truss for the umbilical or navel rupture, upon a new principle, which appears to be superior to any now in use” and a “Machine for the distorted spine, which supports the body indifferent attitiudes of walking, sitting and standing, wheremechanical assistance is required Â...” The names of leading surgeons in Leeds and London are listed in support of MarrisonÂ’s inventions. We have been unable to determine if either apparatus was ever manufactured.

         Travels in China,

      London: Printed by A. Strahan, for T. Cadell and W. Davies,, 1804. containing Descriptions, Observations, and Comparisons, made and collected in the Course of a Short Residence at the Imperial Palace of Yuen-Min-Yuen, and on a subsequent Journey through the Country from Pekin to Canton. In which it is attempted to appreciate the rank that this extraordinary empire may be considered to hold in the scale of civilized nations. Quarto (262 x 200 mm). Recent half calf, red morocco label, marbled sides, red speckled edges. 8 engraved plates: 5 hand-coloured aquatints by Thomas Medland after William Alexander (including portrait frontispiece of Van-ta-gin, one of the embassy's guide-interpreters), 3 uncoloured plates (2 double-page: Chinese ordnance and musical instruments), illustrations of Chinese characters and musical notation in the text. Frontispiece cropped (with loss of caption), red wax stain on verso (with small puncture), paper flaw in blank margin of O2, scattered foxing or spotting, yet a very good, well-margined First edition of this highly influential work. "Barrow accompanied Lord Macartney's mission to the court of China in 1792 as his private secretary, and the present account of the country, accompanied by a number of fine plates, is one of the best illustrated English travels on China" (Hill). Barrow was the only son of a Lancashire journeyman tanner; "educated at the local… grammar school, which he left at the age of thirteen, Barrow worked successively as a clerk in a Liverpool iron foundry, as a landsman on a Greenland whaler, and as a mathematics teacher in a Greenwich academy preparing young men for a naval career, until offered the position of comptroller of household to Lord Macartney's embassy to China" (ODNB). Subsequently, Barrow accompanied Macartney to the Cape, and in 1798 was made auditor general: "His intention to settle at the Cape was frustrated by its return to the Dutch in 1803. He was offered the second secretaryship of the Admiralty by Dundas in 1804, and this he held … until 28 January 1845". An ardent imperialist, Barrow dedicated himself to the promotion of exploring expeditions - including that of Richard and John Lander to discover the course and outlet of the Niger; the arctic endeavours of John Ross, James Clark Ross and Sir John Franklin; Clapperton and Laing in North Africa; and King, Cunningham and Sturt in Australia - and the improvement of the facilities and administration of the Navy. His accounts of his own experiences in Asia and Africa "established new standards for travel writing" (ibid.). The exclusion of Europeans from China "left [that country] very much terra incognita well into the nineteenth century. Barrow was an excellent observer, and the text contains a number of descriptions of Chinese artefacts and novelties. Among these a plate of musical instruments, extensive renditions of Chinese melodies into western notation, and a long description, with illustration, of the abacus" (Hill). The excellent plates are after drawings by William Alexander, whose The Costume of China appeared in 1805.

        (Lettre sur la campagne romaine).

      (1804). In 4° (cm 23,7 x 19,5), legatura carta colorata ottocentesca con etichetta con la scritta: "Lettre de Chateaubriand". Cc (1) bianca, (16), (4) bianche, di carta vergellata e filigranata "Fabiani" di Genova, alcune pagine rigate a matita, con il testo quasi integrale, vergato in nitida gradevole leggibile grafia ottocentesca, della "Lettre sur la campagne romaine" inviata da Chateaubriand, allora Primo Segretario di Ambasciata presso la Corte romana, il 10 gennaio 1804, all'amico marchese de Fontanes, pubblicata poi il tre marzo 1804 sul "Mercure de France"; opera ricca di suggestione, che dipinge in toni preromantici la desolazione della campagna romana costellata dei resti delle antiche rovine, che ispirò una folla di artisti tra cui Corot iniziatore della pitture "en plein air". La campagna romana era già stata descritta da Montaigne, dal Président de Brosses e da George Sand con analoghi accenti: troviamo la Tomba di Nerone, Villa Borghese, Villa Pamphili, i Monti della Sabina, scorci del Tevere, il confronto con Napoli, e il Vesuvio, Posillipo, Baia, Capo Miseno, Cuma, il lago d'Averno, i Campi Flegrei. Lunga e dettagliata la descrizione del Colosseo, poi della Villa Adriana a Tivoli: le Terme, il Pecile, l'antro della Sibilla, il tempio di Vesta... Altrettanto particolaraggiata la meditazione sulla Villa d'Este, i panorami che si scorgono da essa, la tomba di Scipione l'Africano, il carattere degli italiani. Nel nostro manoscritto, l'anonimo estensore (sicuramente un personaggio dell'entourage dell'A., forse il suo segretario) non ha trascritto il penultimo paragrafo del testo originale, consacrato al resoconto della sepoltura di Vittorio Alfieri e all'epitaffio da lui concepito per la sua donna Luisa Stolberg d'Albany; in effetti, parte relativamente priva di agganci con il resto del discorso, che è armoniosa galleria di scenari dalla bellezza commovente, associata alle reminescenze delle tumultuose vicende di cui quei luoghi furono teatro. Importante e gradevole "copia" coeva, eseguita ed inviata, prima della pubblicazione, ad importantissimo altolocato. La parola data agli eredi ci impedisce di farne il nome ma ci accontentiamo del prestigioso cimelio.
