        A General History of Quadrupeds.

      - The Figures Engraved in Wood by T. Bewick. Newcastle upon Tyne:T. Bewick and S.Hodgson,1807. Fifth edition (pp. x, 525, advert). Octavo (20 cm) in full mottled leather, gilt decoration, title in compartment on spine. In the addenda, Bewick includes an early mention of two Australian species-- ‘the figures and descriptions of two very rare animals, sent from New South Wales, by James Hunter, Esq. Governor of that settlement’. The two animals are the Wombach (sic) and an as yet unnamed ‘amphibious animal’ with a bill similar to that of a duck. Thomas Bewick (1753- 1828), a contemporary of William Blake, confined his work to more ordinary subjects than those addressed by that mystic poet- engraver. The General History of Quadrupeds (1790) of which this is the fifth revised and expanded edition, and the History of British Birds (1797) are two of Bewick’s most important works, each of which was issued in a number of editions in his lifetime. A complete description of his work as an engraver, however, comprises two entire volumes (1867- 68). Bewick’s Memoir, published by a daughter in 1862, describes ‘an early impulse to draw [which] constantly filled the margins of his schoolbooks’. To his ‘rustic neighbours [he] became an eminent painter, and the walls of their houses were ornamented with an abundance [of] rude productions.’ See also our Thomas Bewick Marginal Drawings & Notes. Bewick’s third great work, completed late in life, was an edition of the Fables of Aesop. Bewick (and those who worked for him) produced wood engravings to decorate, illustrate, and enhance all manner of publications-- ‘more than eighty small books for children commissioned by some eighteen printers and booksellers such titles as The Tale of Tommy Trip, Cinderella, Goody Goosecap, and Jack Dandy, as well as many books of fables and riddles and manuals for spelling and reading’ (ODNB). If you look closely at the vignettes here in Quadrupeds (A magnifying glass helps), you will discovery ironic little slices of ordinary life: a mischievous little girl is about to give a horse’s tail a sharp yank, while her mother flies down an orchard ladder to intervene; a traveling exotic animal show, a sad bear in tow, traipses dispiritedly down the road to the next country town; a monkey wielding a straight razor contemplates a hirsute image in a shaving mirror. Backstrip skilfully repaired, absent ffep; otherwise clean and tight. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Carte Topographique des Environs de Versailles, dite des Chasses Impériales, levée et dressée de 1764 à 1773 par les Ingénieurs Géographes des Camps et Armées, commandés par feu M. Berthier, Colonel, leur chef; Terminée en 1807: par ordre de Napoléon, Empereur des Français, Roi d'Italie, et Protecteur de la Confédération du Rhin. Pendant le Ministère de S.A.S.M. le Maréchal Alexandre Berthier, Prince de Neuchatel

      Large atlas of Versailles and the surrounding towns, with twelve maps total including one map depicting the overall area covered in the atlas, and eleven more detailed maps covering the towns and immediate surroundings of Mantes, Poissy, St. Denis, Crépieres, Versailles, Paris, Montfor l'Amaury, Chevreuse, Sceaux, Rambouillet, Arpajon, and Corbeil. Very minor scattered soiling or toning, very fine condition. Elephant folio. Original full calf binding with handwritten label affixed to front cover. Some minor scattered soiling and abrasions, minor wear consistent with age. Paris (Dépôt de la Guerre) n.d. (circa 1807). This suite of maps was commissioned by Louis XV to represent his hunting territories around Versailles, and stemmed from his obsession with hunting coupled with a decision to copy an old map of the Duchy of Rambouillet. The maps are the result of three surveys of the land conducted between 1764 and 1773. The first nine maps, including the overview, were completed in the late 18th century under the reign of Louis XVI, but the work was put on hold at the time of the Revolution, when the credits allocated for completing the work were taken away by the National Convention. The last four maps were not completed until 1807, after Napoléon became Emperor. These maps are notable for their precision and the multitude of details represented, including roads, land use features, such as plowing, meadows, vegetable crops, barns, and parks, and hydrography. For his work on these maps, Berthier was granted nobility status. A spectacular and scarce volume of beautiful maps; as of January 2018, WorldCat locates only two holdings in North America.

        REPORTS OF CASES RULED AND ADJUDGED IN THE COURTS OF PENNSYLVANIA BEFORE AND SINCE THE REVOLUTION

      Printed for P. Byrne, Philadelphia 1807 - Four volumes. Second edition of the first volume, first editions of the other three. Vol. I [1806]: x, [1], [1 blank], 502, xxiv, [25]-26pp; Vol. II [1798]: [2], iv, 480, xix pp; Vol. III [1799]: [8], 519, [1 blank], xiii pp; Vol. IV [1807]: [6], 472, xxxiv, [14] pp. Bound in original calf with tooled borders [some scuffing, some wear to spine ends, couple of hinges just starting], gilt-lettered morocco spine labels [label of Vol. III missing], small gilt-lettered black morocco ownership label of "C. Henry Stinson" at foot of each spine [one label partly rubbed away]. Bookplate of "Charles A. Stinson" on front pastedown of all volumes, early ownership signatures at head of title pages, "J. Freedley 1821" and "J. Freedley August 1821." Light tanning, scattered foxing. Very Good. This "very valuable work" [Sabin] prints the official reports of the United States Supreme Court's first ten years, including cases on admiralty, bankruptcy, constitutional interpretation, emancipation of slaves, naturalization, treason; other topics come from Pennsylvania courts beginning in 1754; and federal appeals courts beginning in 1781. "Many of the cases have an historic interest" [id]. "These Reports are the oldest in the United States, except Kirby's. Lord Mansfield is reported to have said of them, that 'they do credit to the Court, the Bar, and the Reporter; they show readiness in practice, liberality in principle, strong reason and legal learning; the method, too, is clear, and the language plain.' " [Marvin]. Cases on the Whiskey Rebellion, confiscation of Loyalists' estates, and the U.S. Supreme Court case of Chisholm v. Georgia are included, along with the appointment of John Jay as Chief Justice of the United States, and the earliest Rules of Practice. The Sloop Betsey, "one of supreme importance in the early history of the country," is printed. It vindicated the Neutrality Act and rebuffed Citizen Genet, by affirming federal court jurisdiction "to restrain or penalize activities violative of international law" [I Warren, Supreme Court in United States History 105-106]. Penhallow v. Doane is also printed, another "case of importance," in which the U.S. Supreme Court upheld federal admiralty jurisdiction to adjudicate competing claims to captured vessels, despite contrary rulings of the New Hampshire State Courts. Each volume has a Table of Cases and a detailed Index by topic. Previous owner John Freedley [1793-1851], of Pennsylvania, was an attorney who represented the Fifth District of Pennsylvania in Congress from 1847-1851. Charles Stinson [1825-1899] was Judge of 38th Judicial District of Pennsylvania and in the Pennsylvania State Senate. Evans 33598, 35374. Marvin 249. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Trattamento delle api in Favignana. Saggio di Teodoro Monticelli. Professore pubblico...

      Presso Vincenzo Orsino. In 8, cm 13 x 20,5, pp. VI + 148 con 1 tavola incisa all'acquaforte ripiegata. Mezza pelle coeva con fregio al dorso. Opera poco comune di questo prete - naturalista di origini brindisine. A causa delle sue frequentazioni giacobine, nel 1795 venne arrestato. Imprigionato non rivelo' comunque quanto sapeva. Venne poi esiliato sull'isola di Favignana per 6 anni, dove, grazie alla clemenza del comandante di quella guarnigione, ebbe modo occuparsi dei suoi studi naturalistici. In questa occasione redasse quest'operetta, pubblicata nel 1807 ed in seguito piu' volte ristampata. Pur avvalendosi di nozioni tratte da vari autori, grande e' l'attenzione data dall'autore agli usi e alla maniera particolare di svolgere quest'attivita' sull'Isola di Favignana e in generale sulle Egadi, cosi' come sono molti i raffronti con la realta' osservata dall'autore in Puglia. Sono anche elencate le specie di piante che fioriscono in inverno e in estate sull'isola. Le immagini della tavola raffigurano gli strumenti utilizzati cosi' come un curioso casco protettivo ITA

        THE LIFE OF GEORGE WASHINGTON, COMMANDER IN CHIEF OF THE AMERICAN FORCES, DURING THE WAR WHICH ESTABLISHED THE INDEPENDENCE OF HIS COUNTRY, AND FIRST PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.TO WHICH IS PREFIXED, AN INTRODUCTION, CONTAINING A COMPENDIOUS VIEW OF THE COLONIES.

      Philadelphia. 1804-1807. - Five text volumes plus atlas. Portrait frontispiece in first volume. Thick octavo text volumes, small folio atlas. Recent half calf and marbled boards, leather labels. A presentation copy of Marshall's classic biography of Washington, given by Daniel Webster to his law mentor, Thomas W. Thompson. First issue of the text, save for the second volume, which is dated 1805 and thus the second issue. "After the able, accurate and comprehensive work of Chief Justice Marshall, it would be presumptuous to attempt a historical biography of Washington" - Jared Sparks. Later American editions omitted the history of the colonies, which is the subject of the first volume. Daniel Webster's presentation inscription on the recto of the frontispiece portrait reads, "Presented to Mr. Thomas W. Thompson Danl Webster Salisbury 1804." He has also signed the titlepage of the first volume. After graduating from Dartmouth in 1801, Webster returned to his hometown of Salisbury, New Hampshire to study law under Thompson. Thompson was admitted to the bar in 1791 and practiced law in Salisbury until 1810, at which time he moved to the capital of Concord to serve as a Congressman and later Senator from New Hampshire. Webster was easily his most notable apprentice. Thompson, though a Harvard man himself, would also serve as a trustee of Dartmouth College from the time he began to tutor Webster until 1821. A wonderful association copy, linking Marshall, Washington, and one of the foremost American lawyers and politicians of the next generation of American leaders. HOWES M317 "aa." SABIN 44788.

      Imprimerie Impériale 1807 - In-4 (260 x 200 mm) de 2 ff. n.ch. (faux-titre et titre), 212 pp. ch. pour le Code; 2 ff.n.ch., 47 pp. pour la Table; veau raciné, plats ornés d'un filet à froid, dos lisse orné, tranches marbrées (reliure de l'époque). Texte officiel du Code de Commerce, ratifié le 25 septembre 1807 par Napoléon à Fontainebleau et appliqué à partir du 1 janvier 1808. Le Code de Commerce fait partie des trois grands travaux de Napoléon pour la réforme du droit en France; les autres sont Le Code Napoléon et le Code Pénal. "Le Code de Commerce de 1807 couronne les efforts constants déployés tout au long du XVIIIe siècle pour adapter et mettre à jour l'ordonnance de 1673 ou Code marchand dont les imperfections s'étaient assez vite fait sentir. Il fallut les retentissantes faillites de 1806 pour que le projet soit ressorti des cartons où il s'était fait oublier. L'Empereur, ému par le scandale que suscitèrent ces affaires frauduleuses, enjoignit au Conseil de se mettre aussi tôt à l'ouvrage. Le prestige du négoce était au plus bas, et les intérêts des commerçants n'étaient pratiquement pas représentés au Conseil d'État. La discussion au Conseil d'État s'engagea le 4 novembre 1806 et s'étendit sur près de neuf mois, occupant quelque soixante-huit séances. L'adoption définitive, puis la promulgation séparée de chacune des lois composant le Code de Commerce, s'échelonnèrent tout au long du mois de septembre" (Tulard). Très bel exemplaire, du tirage de luxe de format in-4, bien complet de la très détaillée Table des matières. Le Code est entièrement interfolié. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        FEMALE CROSS DRESSING SAILOR MANUSCRIPT 1807

      [JOHNSON, Marianne Rebecca] "Report of Proceedings at the Lord Mayor's Court, on Wednesday the 11th November 1807, relative to a girl found dressed in sailors clothes in the vicinage of Bishopsgate Street the preceding morning." 118 lines in ink in a readable hand on five sides of two folded folio sheets, watermarked 1803; original folds. This is a rare and extraordinary original manuscript account of Marianne Rebecca Johnson, alias William Johnson, who was discovered in a state of distress and destitution on Dunnings Lane, Bishopsgate, London in November 1807. Discovered by a passing Master Bricklayer, the young sailor was taken to a nearby public house, the Bull's Head, whereupon Marianne fainted: "On opening his neckerchief and bosom to give air and free circulation for aiding his recovery the true sex was discovered. The hostess immediately rendered every aid and comfort in her power, took her into a private room, interrogated her as to the cause of her assuming such an appearance, when the poor girl disclosed her perverse fortunes ..." Apparently she had been abducted by her abusive stepfather, forced to don sailor's clothing and bound to an apprenticeship with the " May Flower "Collier from Sunderland, then lying off Woolwich. She had served four years before running away because of a flogging with a rope's end. She disclosed that she had lately learned that her stepfather had treated her mother in a similar fashion, sending her by force on to a man of war on which she served seven years, before being mortally wounded in the attack on Copenhagen. Her mother" preferred under a concealment of her sex to brave all the dangers and hardships of a naval life, rather than by disclosing herself to risk a transmittal to Whitby and again meet her unnatural monster of a husband" whose acts against wife and child "would be infamous amongst even the savage Slave Drovers of Africa". This report is full of compassion for the young girl who, despite all that she had experienced in her "uncouth floating boarding school" was a "well turned person, middle sized, her chest and shoulders obviously enlarged by the laborious exertions of her rough avocation, her eyes black and countenance intelligent, and marked by an air of civilized modesty and submissiveness". Marianne was taken under the protection of the Lord Mayor with the intention of passing her to the Parish as a pauper. "But surely such a daughter deserves a better destiny than the association of profligates and beggars in a parish work house". This folded document is inscribed on the verso "to be returned" and is accompanied by a contemporary wax sealed paper wrap, with the title: "female sailor. Wm. Johnson. Revd. D. Clarke. This is a very good manuscript account of a woman's oppression by her abusive father and consequent non conformity, even though dressing in men's clothing seems to have been illegal with accounts of women being charged for having "assumed male attire".

Black ink on rice paper. 68, 47, 47, 62, 63, 53, 59, 27, 61 doubleply leaves; with 26 double-page and 68 single-page hand-coloured illustrations (some placed on recto and verso of the plate leaves), and several hand-drawn schemes in text.

Original Japanese fukuro toji bindings: yellow paper covers with leaves sewn together with strings and paper title labels on the front covers. Each volume with red stamps of a prior owner on the first and last leaves. Housed in a later Japanese cloth folder. Text with minor sporadic worming throughout, back cover of vol. 9 with minor losses on the side margin, otherwise a very good set. Very rare complete 1842 copy of this famous 19th century Japanese travel account which describes the first circumnavigation performed by the Japanese people and became the only open original source of information about Russia in Edo-era Japan. ''Kankai Ibun'' is based on the reports by four Japanese sailors who in the end of December 1793 left Ishinomaki (northeastern Japan) for Edo on board the coastal ship 'Wakamya-Maru' with a cargo of wood and rice. The ship with seventeen crew members was caught in a storm and after several months at sea arrived at the Atka Island (Andreanof group, eastern Aleutian Islands). The crew, supported by local Aleuts, stayed on the island for over ten months, burying the captain who died shortly after arrival, and was eventually rescued by a fur trading vessel of the Russian-American Company. The remaining crew was taken to Okhotsk and thence to Yakutsk and Irkutsk where they lived for eight years. In 1803 the Japanese castaways were summoned to Saint Petersburg where they were received by the Russian Emperor Alexander I and asked if they wanted to return to Japan. Four Japanese expressed the desire to go back home (the rest returned to Irkutsk where most of them already had families), and subsequently joined the crew of the sloop 'Nadezhda' under command of Captain Adam von Krusenstern, which went on the first Russian circumnavigation (1803-1806), accompanied by the sloop 'Neva' under command of Yury Lisyansky. 'Nadezhda' took four Japanese sailors via the Atlantic Ocean to Brazil, around Cape Horn, to the Marquesas and Sandwich Islands, Kamchatka and thence to Nagasaki where it also delivered the Russian embassy headed by count Nikolay Rumyantsev. Although the sloop arrived at Nagasaki in September 1804, it was only in the end of March 1805 that the Japanese sailors were handed to the Japanese authorities. Being frightened of possible oppressions, one of them tried to cut his throat, but survived. The three remaining sailors then went through a long process of interrogation by Otsuki Gentaku - a doctor who was fluent in Dutch and a rangakusha [scholar of Dutch learning] Shimura Hiroyuki. Otsuki and Shimura then thoroughly checked the information from the castaways with the Chinese and Dutch sources and consulted with Japanese geographers and cartographers. Released in 15 (sometimes in 16) parts in 1807, ''Kankai Ibun'' was not confidential, like all previous accounts about Russia, and quickly became very popular with the warlords of Northern Japan and government officials across the country. After the attacks of Russian ships under command of Captains Khvostov and Davydov on the Japanese trading posts on the Sakhalin and the Kurile Islands Russia was considered as a potential war enemy, and all possible information about her was important. There are several known copies of ''Kankai Ibun'' dated from 1807 up the end of the 19th century, deposited in the libraries of Japan, Russia, United States, and Great Britain. There were several Japanese editions (1900, 1943, 1986, 1989 et al.), but its first translation from Japanese was published only in 2009 (in Russian, by a noted Russian specialist in Japanese studies Vladislav Goreglyad). The manuscript consists of sixteen parts (including the Preface), thoroughly describing the 13-year adventures of the castaways starting with them being taken away by the storm in 1793 and finishing with their return to Nagasaki in 1805. Very interesting are their notes on their life on Atka Island (part 1), illustrated with the images of a sea lion, a local bird, the 'hole' entrance to a native house in the ground, a view of (apparently) a Russian-American Company ship near an iceberg, a walrus, Aleutians hunting fish at sea from kayaks et al.); notes about their travel to Siberia and life in Irkutsk (parts 2-7), with detailed description of Russian towns, trade, prisons, manners and customs, houses, food, dress, et al (with the illustrations showing a dog sled, a horse-driven winter cart, interior and exterior of a steam bath house, utensils, a bell-tower, interior of a church, soldiers, coins, musical instruments, a sable, abacus, a windmill, et al); a detailed Japanese-Russian dictionary (part 8), account of their visit to Saint Petersburg (parts 9-11, illustrated with portraits of Alexander I and his wife Empress Elizabeth, two scenes of the first launch of balloons in Russia which took place in Saint Petersburg in 1803 in the presence of the Emperor, views of the giant Globe of Gottorf in the Kunstkamera, streets and winter gardens of Saint Petersburg, a theatrical performance, famous equestrian statue of Peter I in the Senate Square, a panorama of the fortifications of Kronstadt, and others). The last five parts are dedicated to 'Nadezhda's' voyage to Japan, illustrated with pictures of bananas, Brazilian fish ''looking like a fugu fish'', South American alligator named 'crocodile', full-length portraits of a Marquesan man and a woman, images of Marquesan tools for tattooing, three Marquesans in a native boat, a portrait of a woman and a man from Oahu Island in Hawaii (the Hawaiians being described as people with white dyed hair and two front teeth missing); a view of Petropavlovsk harbour, a world map with the track of 'Nadezhda' (based on the map presented by Count Rumyantsev), Russian flags, Cyrilic alphabet, a view of 'Nadezhda' in the Nagasaki harbour, the house where the Russian embassy stayed on shore, numerous items of Russian dress, a map of the Ob River with tributaries, a view of fishing on Lake Baikal, a close-up image of a Russian sailing vessel, and others. It is interesting that the Japanese-Russian dictionary contains a large number of dialect words from Siberia; the other noteworthy fact is that the religion of the Russians was characterized by Otsuki and Shimura as a form of Buddhism which reveals their sympathy to Russia - after Christianity had been banned in Japan no mention of Christians could be considered as positive. Overall a beautiful rare historically significant Japanese manuscript travel account.

        System der Wissenschaft. Erster Theil (all), die Phänomenologie des Geistes.

      Bamberg u. Würzburg, bey Joseph Anton Goebhardt, 1807. 8vo. Contemporary full paper binding with gilt title- and tome- label to spine. Minor wear to extremities. Internally totally fresh and clean. A small paper flaw to blank bottom of title-page. A splendid copy in completely original condition. (8), XCI, (3, - errata), (1, - hyalf-title), 765, (1), (2, -adverts) pp. ¶ The very rare first edition, in a splendid copy, of Hegel's first major work, "Phenomenology of Spirit", in which he gave the first systematic account of his own philosophy. The Phenomenology of Spirit can be read as the itinerary of human reason. It traces the development of the categories of reason from the basic categories of sense perception to the manifestations of absolute spirit as religion, art, and philosophy. As the historical coming into being of reason coincides with the genesis of its self-awareness, the Phenomenology of Spirit also offers a justification of the human condition. The importance of Hegel's work for the development of modern thought cannot be overestimated. The dialectical structures which keep in place Hegel's thought shall determine the trajectory of Marx and - through the lectures of Alexandre Kojève - the course of modern French philosophy.

Baron Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) was a Prussian geographer and explorer who traveled extensively in Latin America. His maps of New Spain corroborated existing maps, documents, and reports with astronomical observations and today, exemplify state-of-the-art cartographic knowledge in the early 19th century. This map is a fine example of his work.

        MEXICO – COLONIAL PRINTING: LIGERISIMO BOSQUEJO DE LA VIDA DE FRANCISCO.

      Mexico City, . 1807 - Illustrated Broadside (30.5 x 21 cm / 12 x 8.3 inches), copper engraving and letterpress on laid, watermakred paper (Excellent Condition, strong impression, paper with deckled edges). An extremely rare Mexican colonial illustrated broadside celebrating the life of the late Italian Jesuit priest Francesco de Geronimo, issued to celebrate his recent beatification, published in Mexico City by the engraver and assayer Francisco Gordillo. - This extremely rare broadside celebrates the life of Francesco de Geronimo (1642 - 1716), an Italian Jesuit priest who was beatified by the Vatican in 1806. It was published in Mexico City by Francisco Gordillo, a Spanish-born engraver who is best known as the Chief Assayer of the Mexico City mint. The broadside is dominated by a fine frontal portrait of Francesco de Geronimo in his vestments, with Gordillo’s imprint appearing near the bottom of the platemark. The detailed letterpress text below recounts aspects of the priest’s life and accomplishments. While Francesco de Geronimo never stepped foot in the Americas, his tireless and selfless life of work assisting destitute people in Southern Italy was well known in Mexico, even ninety years after his death. We are also aware of another version of the broadside, bearing slightly different text. Additionally, it seems that Gordillo also issued the portrait of Francesco de Geronimo that appears on the broadside separately. These issues are likewise rare. A Note on Rarity - Like virtually all Mexican colonial broadsides, which tended to have been published in only very small print runs, the present issue of Gordillo’s work is extremely rare. We can locate only a single institutional example of this version, and can trace only a single sales record going back 30 years. Francisco Gordillo: Engraver and Essayist in Spain and Mexico - The creator of the present broadside, Francisco Gordillo (fl. 1770 - 1830), is best known for his numismatic work, as an engraver and assayer. His engraving of print on paper were something of boutique sideshow, ensuring that they are particularly rare. Little is known of Gordillo’s early life, although he hails from Andalucía, perhaps Seville. He first appears as an assistant engraver in the Case de la Moneda (mint) in Seville around 1770, where he made dies for coins. He remained in Seville for two decades, during which his 1789 medal, celebrating the coronation of Carlos IV, was much admired. In 1791, Gordillo transferred to the Casa de la Moneda in Madrid, where he remained for some years. By the late 1790s, Gordillo became frustrated that, despite his nearly 30 years of experience, he could not gain promotion to the post of Principal Engraver, a role he believed he deserved.

The inscription in Hebrew are: front blank: I am writing me name, Yechiel bar Daniel [[?] [crossed out: Moshe] in Ungarn.[Rear pastedown:] [?] I mourn the death of the dear man Yaakov [Tzvi?] Yosef Katz who passed away on Tuesday, the 1[?]3th day of Iyar [5]5609 [= 1849] the 9th of May 94 and was interred [?] R.I.P. the year '94 is crossed out and in pencil is written: 1849. The correction is warranted the year in the gregorian calendar is 1849, not 1894. In his grief, the original writer made an error.
