         La Moral Universal, ó los deberes del hombre fundados en su naturaleza. Traduccion por D.M.D.M.

      Burdeos, imprenta de Pinard, 1819. - 3 volumes in-12. Frontispice. 2ff. XXXI. 356pp. + 2ff. 308pp. + 2ff. 346pp. Pleine basane racinée, dos lisse orné, pièce de titre et de tomaison de maroquin, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque, un peu frottée, coiffe supérieure du tome III manquante). Rare édition en espagnol, imprimée à Bordeaux par le fameux typographe Jean-Baptiste Pinard (mort en 1831), de "La Morale Universelle" du Baron d'Holbach, l'un des bréviaires de la philosophie matérialiste des Lumières. Il s'agit de la contrefaçon d'une traduction initialement parue à Madrid en 1812. Elle fut commanditée par Guillaume Denné, libraire français installé à Madrid à la suite de l'occupation napoléonienne et qui, à la faveur du vent de liberté qui souffla dans le pays pendant le Triennio Liberal (1820-1823), s'était fait une spécialité de l'importation d'ouvrages français censurés en Espagne. La diffusion de l'ouvrage devait rencontrer de graves difficultés: non seulement l'Inquisition espagnole, considérant la traduction comme "séditieuse et révolutionnaire", la condamna dès le 29 mai 1819 tout comme elle avait déjà condamné l'original français en 1804, mais le traducteur Manuel Díaz Moreno s'estimant lésé la dénonça également et obtint la destruction des exemplaires saisis, ainsi que le paiement de dommages et intérêts par le libraire. Il est intéressant de noter que cette édition est la plus ancienne mentionnée par Palau, qui semblait ignorer l'existence d'une édition espagnole datée de 1812. Il est également curieux de constater que l'Inquisition ignorait apparemment la première parution de la traduction, et semble avoir attendu la publication de cette édition pour la condamner. Frontispice allégorique gravé, avec la légende: "Si quieres ser amado, ama". Papier un peu bruni par endroits. Bon exemplaire. Palau, 115577. Goldsmiths’-Kress no. 23356 (exemplaire avec les titres de relance à l'adresse de Valladolid, 1821). A propos de la famille Denné, voir Diana Cooper-Richet, "Apuntes para una historia de la librería Denné (1785-1885)", in Orbis Tertius, vol. XIX, nº 20 (2014), pp. 148-154.

         MEMOIRS OF THE LIFE AND CAMPAIGNS OF THE HON. NATHANIEL GREENE.

      Philadelphia. 1819. - xxiii,[1],452pp. plus portrait frontispiece and two folding facsimiles. Original green paper-covered boards, manuscript spine title. Spine chipped, extremities worn. Foxed, some leaves with faint dampstaining, 19th-century pencil inscriptions from "George W. Ford Baltimore Maryland" on front free endpaper, contemporary ink signature reading "E.A. Poe" on front pastedown. A good copy in original condition. Untrimmed. In a half morocco box. Edgar Allan Poe's copy of this engaging biography of Gen. Nathaniel Greene, with descriptions of many of the major battles of the Revolution, in which Greene played a significant role. Poe has signed the front pastedown, "E.A. Poe" in dark ink. During his professional life, as an editor and literary critic, Poe read widely. He reviewed literature and poetry, but also a wide range of historical nonfiction, such as INCIDENTS OF TRAVEL IN CENTRAL AMERICA, THE LIFE OF PETRARCH, MEMOIRS OF LUCIEN BONAPARTE, A LIFE OF WASHINGTON, and NOTICES OF THE WAR OF 1812, among many others. Caldwell's history of Nathaniel Greene would have fit nicely into Poe's voracious reading habits. The contemporary pencil notations from another Baltimore owner on the front free endpaper lends credence to Poe's ownership of the book. An excellent copy of Caldwell's work on Greene, with a fascinating American literary association. SABIN 9897. HOWES C21. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 47494.

         Transactions of the Literary Society of Bombay. [Including] Account of a Journey from Katif on the Persian Gulf to Yamboo on the Red Sea (Volume 3, pp. 449-493)

      1819-23. 1819 - First edition. Three volumes (1819, 1820, 1823). Later green morocco over marbled boards, gilt titling to spine; binding rubbed. Vol. 1: sporadic foxing to interior, plates browned, water-staining throughout at lower right corner. Vols. 2 and 3 considerably cleaner and fresher; plates browned, otherwise very good. Ex-libris of Bath Public Reference Library, with discreet blind-stamps to title-page and plates of each volume. London, Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, Brown and John Murray, An important collection of papers on India, Persia and Arabia. It is most significant for including the first printed account of the first crossing of the Arabian Peninsula by a European. Captain G. F. Sadleir?s account of his twelve-hundred-mile journey in 1819 features a rare engraved route map and, vitally, what is quite possibly the first mention of Riyadh in print. Félix Mengin?s Histoire de l?Egypte , in which Riyadh appears once on the map and twice in the text of Vol.2, was also published in 1823, but is likely to have been preceded by the present text as it contains a number of notes on Sadleir?s journey ( Remarques sur l?Itinéraire du capitane Sadlier [sic], Vol. 2, pp. 589-93). With Ottoman control re-established over central Arabia at the fall of Diriyah in 1818 (an event which marked the end of the first Saudi State) Sadleir was sent to congratulate Ibrahim Pasha. He also sought to gain his cooperation for action against the pirates active in the Persian Gulf, who were a continual plague to British interests. Obtaining little Arabic but some experience of diplomacy in the Near East (on the political staff of Sir John Malcolm) he set out to find the Pasha and his Egyptian army. Starting from Qatif, he embarked on the potentially perilous trek across the desert, relying on the support of Turkish officials, Arab tribes and Bedouins. His route, illustrated in the map, took him through a number of towns and villages in Najd, many of which had been razed by the Pasha?s forces. This allowed him to ascertain the near-disappearance of the Wahhabis in the wake of their defeat: ?With the fall of Deriah and the departure of Abdoollah, the sect of the Wahabis appears to have been extinguished? (p.490). He did however locate traces of the religion in the future capital of Saudi Arabia: ?I, however, met some persons at Munfooah and Riad, who avowed themselves to be of the Wahabi faith; but their number was inconsiderable, and they were the remains of the inhabitants of Deriah, and not Bedouins? (p.490). Sadleir eventually encountered Ibrahim Pasha on the outskirts of Medina and put forward his case for the founding of a partnership. The Pasha was not convinced and Sadleir was forced to leave with his essential aim unfulfilled. That goal was destined to unravel in any case, as the Pasha quickly realised that Najd was ungovernable and subsequently withdrew westward to the Hejaz. Though his mission was a failure, Sadleir succeeded in crossing a swathe of land un-stepped by any European before him. The present text is, therefore, an essential source for the study of Saudi Arabian history and geography. From the library of Colonel S. B. Miles (1838-1914). The bookplate reads ?Presented [to the Bath Public Library] by Mrs. Miles in Memory of her Husband, the late Col. Samuel Barrett Miles, 1920.? Miles was an extraordinary figure. His first appointment in Arabia was as Resident at Aden in 1867; he was later made Agent and Consul at Muscat before being promoted Consul General, first at Bagdad then at Zanzibar. He is best known for the remarkable work The Countries and Tribes of the Persian Gulf (1919), which was published posthumously by his widow from an extensive archive of notes, ?many of which were jotted down on odd bits of paper as he [Miles] rode through the desert on his camel? The book remains an authority on Omani history and provides a storehouse of knowledge for any reader interested in the Persian Gulf. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Andrew Jackson

      March 1, 1819. Manuscript Document, one page, 7” x 4”. [Melton’s Bluff, Alabama], March 1, 1819. Four-word docket by Jackson on verso. On laid paper. Fine condition.

The document, in full, “Recd of William W. Crawford five Dollars in full for my Servisses through the Sholes.” Signed “Robert Brashers.” On verso, darkly penned by Andrew Jackson: “No 4 - / Robt. Brashears / $5.” The word “Recpt” is in another hand.

Tensions in the South between the frontier settlers and the Creek Indians began in Revolutionary times. The Continental Congress received numerous reports on skirmishes between settlers and the Creeks. On August 30, 1813, Creek Indians massacred several hundred pioneers at Fort Mims, near Tensaw, in south Alabama, Mississippi Territory. Col. Andrew Jackson marched into Alabama with the Tennessee militiamen to fight what is now known as the Creek Indian War. The Cherokee joined in the fight. In October, Jackson dispatched Col. John Coffee, one of his wife’s nephews, and 800 men to hunt for a war party of Creeks. Once of Coffee’s men was Davy Crockett. They crossed the Tennessee River and traveled to the head of Elk River Shoals. In his report to Jackson, Coffee wrote, in part, “I proceeded to cross the river at the upper end of the shoals, all my efforts failed to produce a pilot. I took with me one of John Melton’s sons...”

The Cherokees had established a large village at what became known as Melton’s Bluff. In 1780, John Melton, an Irishman, married a Cherokee woman and established a cotton plantation at Melton’s Bluff. As a result of the 1806 Cotton Gin Treaty, the Cherokee received one of Mississippi Territory’s first cotton gins and other concessions for ceding land north of the Tennessee River to the United States.

On January 3, 1818, in a letter published in her ‘Letters from Alabama” (Washington: 1830), Anne Newport Royall wrote, “Of General Jackson, I shall say nothing till I see him, which pleasure I expect at Melton's Bluff, head of the Muscle Shoals, where I shall be in a few days...” On January 12th, she wrote “after chatting with Rhea, I learned he was from Rockbridge county, Virginia; had piloted boats through the Muscle Shoals, fifteen years; sometimes four at a time, at ten dollars each. He sails down one day, and walks back the next. He never met, in all that time, with an accident! There are several of these pilots...” Robert Brashers was one of those pilots.

On January 14, 1818, Mrs. Royall told of her stay in Melton’s Bluff. In part, “Melton’s Bluff is a town, and takes its name from a person by the name of John Melton, a white man, deceased two years since, at an advanced age ... You have heard that this country consists of table and bottom land, also, of the Bluffs. These Bluffs happen where there is no bottom land, but the table land running up to the river forms a high precipice, called a Bluff. This is the case at Melton’s Bluff, the highest I have seen. Here is a very large plantation of cotton and maize, worked by about sixty slaves, and owned by General Jackson, who bought the interest of old Melton...” After John Melton died in 1816, Jackson purchased his plantation and his slaves from his son. Royal continued, “I can sit in my room and see the whole plantation; the boats gliding down the river...”

Jackson used those boats to transport cotton and corn grown at his plantation which was located on the south bank of the Tennessee River near Florence, Alabama. Muscle Shoals was a hazard to navigation because of its sandbanks which required an experienced pilot; the river drops 140 feet in 30 miles. William W. Crawford was employed by Jackson to hire pilots to assist his boats through the Shoals. In 1821, the State of Tennessee passed an act “To authorize William Crawford and company of Franklin County, to build a Mill and other water works on the Tennessee River and for other purpose.”

         Golda Meir

      , [January 18, 1935], 1819. [January 18, 1935]. Typed Manuscript Signed “Golda Meyerson” in Hebrew, three pages, 8” x 11”, separate sheets. [Eretz Yisroel, January 18, 1935]. On lightweight paper. Clip stains at upper right edge, light folds. Loose-leaf holes in blank right margin. Not translated. Fine condition.Headed “Reminder of the Increase in Tourism in the Agricultural Industry.” Summarizing this report, Meir first gives six reasons for the increase in tourism. She writes that the agricultural industry is not prepared or able to cope with the number of tourists which hinder farmers from producing the quantities needed. There is a need to have some regulations regarding the tourism industry and a need to accommodate the different groups that come to Eretz Yisroel. There is also a need to construct housing to accommodate tourists. The tourism industry will be successful if the tour guides, the Jewish Agency, and the agriculture industry are coordinated.On January 18, 1935, Meir wrote a letter to A. Kaplan at the Jewish Agency, enclosing this manuscript, telling him “I am sending a reminder on the problems we are having with the tourism industry in Eretz [Israel]. I wish that you review the policy and hope that we are able to build some housing…”In 1928, Golda Meir was elected secretary of Histadrut’s Council for Working Women, which required her to spend two years (1932-1934) as an emissary in the United States. In 1934, when Meir returned to Eretz Israel, she joined the Executive Committee of the Histadrut and moved up the ranks to become head of its Political Department. After Hitler came to power in Germany in 1933, many German Jews moved to Palestine; many came illegally on tourist visas. The number reached its height in 1935 but then declined as a result of immigration restrictions imposed by the British. In 1935, after Golda Meir wrote this manuscript, the Jewish Agency created the Tourist Development Association of Palestine. Posters encouraging travelers to "Visit Palestine” were soon seen on the walls of travel bureaus in Europe and the United States. In 1956, upon becoming Foreign Minister of Israel, Golda Meyerson Hebraized her name to “Golda Meir.”

         Nouveau système de minéralogie traduit du suédois sous les yeux de l'auteur ...

      Paris, Méquignon-Marvis, 1819, in 8°, de VI-315pp., demi-veau blond époque, dos lisse orné, p. de t. bleue, bel exemplaire. Edition originale française corrigée par Berzélius. Ouvrage fondamental dans lequel il expose sa nouvelle méthode de classification des minéraux d'après leur composition chimique plutôt que sur leurs qualités physiques. En cela il s'opposera à Haüy. Mitscherlich reconnaîtra que la composition chimique reste un élément déterminant et James Dwight Dana reprendra en 1837 les classifications de Berzélius. Toutes les classifications ultérieures seront des classifications chimico-minéralogiques, encore utilisées de nos jours. ¶ DSB II p.90 "In accord with the interest that Swedish chemists had long shown in mineralogical studies, Berzelius had from time to time analyzed minerals that came into his hands. The discovery of cerium was the result of such an analysis. In 1812 he received a gift of a large number of minerals which he later decided to classify. The methods of mineral classification existing at that time were based on appearance and physical properties. These seemed highly unsystematic to Berzelius. He concluded from his analytical experience that a logical classification could be based only on chemical composition. In his original system, first published in 1814, he arranged the minerals in terms of their basic constituents, although he later revised this and placed chief emphasis on the acid component. Like most of Berzelius' innovations, his system of mineral classification was at first received with some hostility but this was gradually overcome. During his visit to Paris in 1818 he won the approval of Haüy, the leading minerologist of the day, whose own system was based on physical properties" - Ward & Carozzi 202 - Hoover 123 - Bolton 308.

         Voyage en Perse pendant les années 1812 et 1813 contenant des détails peu connus sur les moeurs, usages, coutumes et cérémonies religieuses des Persans; ainsi que sur leur état militaire, tant ancien qu'actuel, et généralement sur tout ce qui concerne les forces régulières et irrégulières de cet empire.

      Imprimé chez Pulchart à ses frais à Paris chez Firmin Didot Saint Pétersbourg 1819 - Two volumes bound in one and atlas, quarto (26.8 x 21.2 cm). Half-title, title, XXXVI, [2], 168, [2]pp.; Half-title, title, 224, [2]pp. Atlas: title, complete as per index with double-page map, frontispiece portrait and 59 plates, including 13 double and 3 folding, engraved or lithographed mostly after Orlowski and Swébach by Beggrow, Shelkovnikov and others, all in contemporary hand colour, plates printed on at least three sorts of English paper, watermarks "Whatman" dated 1817 and 1818; a heraldic badge of the Prince of Wales's three feathers, 1818; heavier paper watermarked "G.J.F."; narrow light waterstain to inner margin in the last quire of text volume, occasional light spotting, heavier to titles, some occasional browning, plate 18 cut out and pasted on contemporary paper of the same sort, a few small repairs. Contemporary green crushed sheep, gilt ornamental boarders and turn-in, gilt lettering "à Sa Majesté le Roi de Sardaigne et de Piémont" to upper boards, spine decorated and lettered in gilt, pink endpapers, all edges gilt; slightly rubbed, some scratches to boards. First edition of this extensive account of Persia, which provided European and Russian policy makers with practical cultural and military knowledge. A superb example, finely bound for and presented to Victor-Emmanuel I (1759-1824), Duke of Savoy and King of Sardinia; later acquired by the great bibliophile and collector of Islamic art Charles Kettaneh. For a long time Persia had been a major player in Central Asia and the focus of Russian and European politics in the region. Interest in Persia rose further following yet another Russo-Persian War (1804–13), which culminated with the Treaty of Gulistan confirming the inclusion of modern day Azerbaijan, Daghestan and Eastern Georgia into the Russian Empire. After this humiliating defeat the Persian ruler Abbas Mirza started to seek closer ties with Europe and embarked on reforming and westernising his military forces with extensive assistance from Britain. Even though a number of historic accounts of Persia had been published before, they hardly provided Europeans and Russians with the much needed practical up-to-date information. This gap was to be filled by a Frenchman and soldier of fortune, Gaspard Drouville (1783-1856), who spent three years in Persia in the service of the Russian Tsar. Initially interested in the organisation of the Persian army and recent military reforms, Drouville thought it was necessary to make the work more appealing to the general reader, and therefore expanded it with descriptions of Persian social classes and ranks, customs, traditions and everyday life. The text is accompanied by sixty beautiful hand-coloured plates gathered in an atlas together with a map showing new borders established after the Treaty of Gulistan. Very unusually, the atlas combines lithographed and engraved plates, with most of the illustrations after the famed Polish artist Alexander Orlowski (also Orlovsky; 1777–1832), who was responsible for introducing lithography to Russia in 1816 (Erik Gollerbakh, Istoriya graviury i litografii v Rossii, p.97). Complete with an exceptionally rare first issue of the atlas absent from major bibliographies and public holdings. The atlas has a complex publication history, which is not registered in the main bibliographies. Through our own research we have established that there were at least three issues of the first edition printed in 1819–20. Our 4to. issue of the atlas was shortly followed by second and third issues published in folio format with varying titles: "Atlas ou Collection de 35 Dessins lithographiés par A. Orlowskj [.]. Second tirage. Prix 300 Rbl. Décembre 1819" and "Ou Collection De 40 Dessins lithographiés par A. Orlowskj [.]. Troisième Tirage. Prix 350 Rbl. 1820". Most bibliographies do not distinguish between these different issues, simply stating "first edition". They collate 62 plates, which corresponds to the index of the second and third issues, [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

         Journal of a Route Across India, Through Egypt, to England.

      London: John Murray,, 1819. In the Latter End of the Year 1817, and the Beginning of 1818. Quarto (270 x 203 mm). Recent half calf to style, Greek key roll gilt to spine forming compartments with floral centre-tools gilt, red morocco label, marbled sides and edges. Hand-coloured aquatint frontispiece and 8 similar plates, 2 uncoloured aquatints, one line-drawing, 7 maps and plans including a large folding map, battle-plans with the dispositions coloured. Light offsetting from plates, slightly stronger from folding map. An excellent copy with bright plates, complete with the half-title, errata leaf and directions to the binder. First and only edition, "very scarce, [copies] having been bought up by the noble author" (Willis and Sotheran, cited after Abbey). As his surname indicates, FitzClarence (1794-1842) was the eldest of the ten children born to the Duke of Clarence, later King William IV, by the actress Dorothy Jordan; hence he was nephew to the Prince Regent, to whom this volume is dedicated. After distinguishing himself in the Peninsular War, FitzClarence disturbed his royal relatives by agitating against his former commanding officer. He and his brother were consequently "sent in disgrace to join the 24th light dragoons in India, where the governor-general, Lord Moira, was urged to treat them 'with the strictest discipline, not to say severity' … FitzClarence was Moira's aide-de-camp and as such served in the campaigns of 1816–17 against the Marathas" (ODNB). After the death of his brother in September 1817 he was sent back to England bearing the dispatches of the peace treaty signed with Maharaja Sindhia, travelling via the overland route. "In the long section on Egypt he describes at length his contacts with Salt and Belzoni and gives an interesting account of his visits to the Pyramids with them" (Blackmer). The splendid illustrations after sketches by the author, include four "curious plates" of native troops in uniform — A Gorkah Soldier; The Dromedary and Rocket Corps; Irregular Cavalry, Bengal Army; & Seapoys of the Bombay, Bengal and Madras Armies — which are among the most authentic images of the army of the HEIC.
