         John Quincy Adams Scathing Anti-Masonic Letter After the Murder of a Prominent Anti-Mason Who Threatened to Reveal their Secrets

      Washington, D.C. 1833 - Autograph Letter Signed as Congressman, to Stephen Bates. Washington, D.C., April 1, 1833. 3 pp. 8 x 9 3/4 in. "To all members of the Masonic fraternity, who entered it before the murder of Morgan I would extend the most liberal Toleration. Most of them took the Oaths without reflecting upon what they imported.Now the case is otherwise. How they can now take or administer the cutthroat Oath to keep Secret, what all the world knows, I cannot comprehend."In the wake of the murder of William Morgan, a prominent anti-Mason who had threatened to reveal the society's secrets, John Quincy Adams requested the return of an old letter. Considering the political climate, Adams thought the letter would reflect poorly on its now-deceased recipient, as well as expose Adams, a prominent opponent of Freemasonry, to public criticism for having supported a man he knew to be of good character who also happened to be a Mason. The former president, now in Congress, goes on to explain his political support for anti-Masonry, one of the first third-party political movements in the United States. Complete TranscriptStephen Bates Esq. Boston Washington 1 April 1833I thank you for your kindness and attention in procuring and transmitting to me the Letter which about this Time last year I wrote to my young and now deceased friend John B. Davis, little as I imagined when it was written how sad and by what a melancholy casualty it would return to me. He had written to me, requesting a Letter from me to Governor Lincoln recommending him as a Candidate for the appointment of public attorney for the County of Suffolk, then, or soon expected to be vacant. And knowing my opinions, adverse to the Masonic Institution, of which he was a member, he had mentioned the fact to me, as a circumstance which he deemed it proper Should be known to me, in coming to my determination upon his request. From the Confidence which I had in his personal integrity, and the friendship which I entertained for him, I did not hesitate to comply with his desire. I wrote to him the Letter which you have seen and on the same day recommended him by another to Governor Lincoln. It may perhaps have occurred to you that if it had fallen into hands, of persons on the search for matter of charge or censure upon me, they would have argued on inconsistency between the sentiments expressed in this Letter, and those avowed in another to Mr. Benjamin Cowell of Rhode Island of more recent date, and which has been published; but there is no inconsistency between them at all. In the Letter to Mr. Cowell I declared my approbation of the principle of those Anti-Masons, who believing the Masonic Institutions to be an enormous Nuisance in the Community; and that if the Oaths, Obligations and Penalties were not voluntarily relinquished, they ought to be prohibited by Penal Statutes enacted by the State Legislatures, voted exclusively for persons holding the same opinions, to be members of the State Legislatures. Thus far I cordially approved of Political Anti-Masonry - And hold it to be neither disfranchisement nor persecution of Masons - The Legislature of Rhode Island have gone further. They have made the Administration of extra judicial Oaths penal; and have interdicted it my disfranchisement for the second offense. This I approve also, because it looks to the future. It does not disfranchise men because they have taken or administered extra judicial Oaths heretofore. That was Mr. Davis's case. I should not hold it justifiable to exclude such persons from public offices. I might scrutinize somewhat more closely their principles. To all members of the Masonic fraternity, who entered it before the murder of Morgan I would extend the most liberal Toleration. Most of them took the Oaths without reflecting upon what they imported, or sheltering their consciences under the great names which had gone before them. They were always taken by surprize, Summoned to take the O. (See website for full description)

Dos un peu insolés, mais bon exemplaire. Unique édition, très peu commune, de cette correspondance informative qui aurait été adressée à Napoléon pendant le Consulat et l'Empire, et qui fait un peu penser à celle (authentique) de Fiévée. Mais la comparaison s'arrête là : il est impossible de déterminer si ces missives ont été effectivement mises sous les yeux de l'Empereur pour le fournir en renseignements "indépendants", les précautions avancées dans l'introduction pour expliquer qu'on n'a jamais recherché l'identité de l'auteur sentent un peu trop la manoeuvre pour décourager d'aller y voir de plus prêt. Davois II, 242 Exemplaire de l'érudit montreuillois Charles Henneguier (1811-1872), avec cachet humide apposé aux titres.

         Massachusetts

      , 1833 - 1840. 1833 - 1840. In accordance with a Massachusetts law passed on January 22, 1776 Section 23 claiming that each Brigadier General of the colony should provide two field forces. The men were often selected from two separate regiments. This manuscript with over 110 pp details the elections of the field officers as well as military officials tried for indiscretions. The items date from 1833 to 1840 with varying headquarters based in New Bedford, Wareham, Fall River, Boston and Pawtucket. Some of the excerpts read: "October 18, 1833 "The committee on Military Affairs, to whom was referred an application for authority to raise a volunteer Company of riflemen in New Bedford, report - that said application is signed by forty five individuals representing that they are mechanics and citizens of New Bedford that there is no independent Company of Infantry or riflemen in that town and that in the present state of the military companies in that place, the service would be greatly benefited by the organization of a company of Riflemen. This representation having been accompanied with a communication from James D. Thompson who is Brigadier General of the second brigade, fifth division, which although not in the form of an official certificate my nevertheless be considered as an approval of the object of the petitioners, and his Excellency the commander in Chief having been lately advised to disband the company of Cavalry in Norton, the committee recommend that authority be granted for raising said company of riflemen by voluntary enlistment to be annex'd to the Fourth Regiment second Brigade , fifth division and to be recruited within the limits of said Regiment, provided that said company shall not be organized until forty five persons shall be enrolled for that purpose . . . " "August 7, 1834 reads, "The Brigadier General, very much regrets that a return should have been received by him under the sanction of the name of so able an officer as Col. Stone so very imperfect and incorrect as that received from the 4th Regiment in June last; and cannot but hope it never passed his inspection, notwithstanding his name is attached thereto - The charges are first that as much of the artillery as is returned as al, is incorporated with the infantry, which is not the place for it, a special return having been provided and sent for that purpose. Second, all the return that is made of the artillery is simply the, men composing the company and their knapsacks nothing is said of their arms and equipments, their guns . . . brag ropes - Bricoles - Harnesses and the only way the Brig Major could make his return was from yours of last year . . . Thus sir I have endeavored to lay before you the imperfections in the return rec'd from your regiment; and when you recollect the importance attached to these returns, you will undoubtedly see the necessity of having them entirely correct and that you will be vigilant, to see that such another return may never . . . from any officer under our command. By order of the Brig. Gen'l 2'd Brig. And 5th Division. J.H. Collins Brig. Major." "January 26, 1836 General Orders: At a general court martial held at Dedham on the 6th Inst. Of which Brig, Gen'l . . . Oldham of the first Brigade and fifth divisions is President was tried Major John P. Jones commander of a Battalion of Light Infantry in he second Brigade first Div. Of the militia on a complaint exhibited against him for Breach of Duty by Brigadier Gen'l Amos H. Boyd of the same Brigade. The court having considered the charge and the several specifications under it, is of the opinion and decides that the said Maj. John P. Jones is guilty of the first specification except the words "being instigated by motives of hatred and ill will towards the several individuals so elected" and also he words "with malice" that the said Major John P. Jones is guilty of the second specifications except that words being actuated by motives of malice and ill will against the said Mowny, Blake and Hawes also the word malicious and also the words, "the said rifle company has been during the time aforesaid without any commissioned officers." . . . And the court sentenced the said Maj. John P. Jones to be removed from office and do adjudge him to be disqualified for and incapable of holding any military office under this commonwealth for ten years and the court do further sentence the said Maj. John P. Jones to pay a fine of one hundred dollars." "Headquarters of Boston, July 9, 1839 General Orders, A resonance against the election held in New Bedford on the 30th of March for the choice of Field officers in the 2nd Reg't and 2 Brig. And 5 division, having been received with a statement from the Major General , confirming the representation contained therein, the commander in chief after a careful examination of the circumstances, considers the election to have been so irregularly conducted as to make it necessary to set the proceedings aside, which is accordingly done, and a new election ordered . . ."

         A Sketch of the History of Ohio

      Cincinnati: Corey and Fairbank, 1833. First Separate Edition. Hardcover. Good. Tall octavo, 40pp. A good copy in the original boards with period brown calf spine and corner tips and red morocco spine label. Dampstaining and general wear to boards, gentle wear at the corners, and moderate internal foxing. Pencil and some ink writing to the endpapers and endleaves, with some internal notations. Some chipping and minor closed tears to a few leaves, not affecting text. A highly scarce volume, considered by many to be one of the earliest works solely dedicated to the history of Ohio, which, at the time of publication, had been a state for only three decades. Chase, who is best known for serving as Secretary of the Treasury during the Lincoln administration, also served as Governor of Ohio and Senator from Ohio. He published this volume when he was just 25 years old, originally as part of his "Statutes of Ohio," and was soon after published separately, of which this copy is an example (Howes C-320 (aa)). Though in far from fine condition, a rare and highly sought after early history of the Buckeye state, authored by a young and ambitious Salmon P. Chase, who would, over the next three decades, cement himself as a transformational figure in Ohio and American politics.

         Entrepotdok Amsterdam - Petrus Josephus Lutgers, 1833.

      BEDRIJVIGHEID IN HET ALGEMEEN RIJKSENTREPOT TE AMSTERDAM?Entrep?t-dok, te Amsterdam? gezien vanaf de Plantage Muidergracht richting Oosterdok, steendruk uit 1833 van de hand van Petrus Josephus Lutgers, gedrukt door Desguerrois & Co. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm ca. 37 x 46 cm. (Afm. lijst: 54 x 74 cm.)Om in de 19e-eeuw transitohandel in Amsterdam te stimuleren, konden in het Rijks Entrepot goederen tijdelijk worden opgeslagen, zonder dat daarover invoerrechten moesten worden afgedragen. Accijnzen hoefden pas te worden betaald op het moment dat de goederen op de markt werden gebracht.Na de oprichting van het Rijks Entrepot werden tussen 1827 en 1840 werden 51 reeds bestaande pakhuizen aangekocht van particuliere eigenaren. Ook werden er 33 nieuwe pakhuizen bijgebouwd. De pakhuizen van de particuliere eigenaren waren in gebruik als opslag van wijn, cacao, graan, rogge, hout, walvis-spek en walvis-traan. Ze droegen namen als Bordeaux, Brandewijnstuk, Dantzig en de Hoop. Na de overname krijgen de pakhuizen nieuwe namen. Gekozen wordt voor de namen van de handelssteden uit de Noordelijke en Zuidelijke Nederlanden (het latere Belgi?), waarmee vanuit Amsterdam handel wordt gedreven. De naamgeving van de panden is een hommage aan het nieuwe nationale zelfbewustzijn dat opkwam na de Franse tijd.Omdat het Rijks Entrepot in 1827 een afgesloten en bewaakt douane-terrein wordt, komt er rondom het Entrepot een hoge muur aan de zijde van de Kadijk. Het terrein wordt bewaakt door hellebaardiers en krijgt slechts ??n toegang: het nog steeds bestaande poortgebouw aan het Kadijksplein.Tegen het eind van de 19e eeuw kunnen zeeschepen vanwege hun toegenomen grootte het Entrepot niet meer bereiken. Ze leggen nu aan in de haven van Amsterdam. In 1894 wordt het Entrepotdok overgenomen door de gemeente Amsterdam en wordt weer een normale goederenopslag.Deze steendruk is een losse uitgave van tekenmeester, schilder en lithograaf Lutgers (1808-1874), die als landschapsschilder gespecialiseerd was in riviergezichten.Prijs: ?975,- (incl. lijst).

         Emigration in Search of a Husband

      J. Kendrick, London 1833 - Handcoloured etching from a scrapbook with abbreviated title, 240 x 195 mm., lower margin and caption title incomplete. A famous satirical cartoon, lampooning the fate of a prospective bride upon her departure for the Australian colonies. A shortage of women was a defining quality of colonial society from the foundation years through the 1840s. Only the mass emigration of the gold rush years finally equalized the gender imbalance.This cartoon was printed in 1833 after the British Government had established the Emigration Commission to assist female emigration. Although intended to be humorous, it does reflect the possibilities for social and economic advancement on offer in New South Wales. It depicts a slender porter struggling to carry a heavy trunk for a portly woman wearing a large bonnet. The porter asks "What are you going to Sidney for, pray ma'am ?" and the lady replies: "Vy [why] they says as how theres lots of good husbands to be had cheap whereas the brutes in England can't see no charms in a woman unles she's got plenty of money to keep 'em in idleness". This aspirational dialogue pokes fun at the British Government's intent to encourage social mobility in what was still a penal colony in the early days of transition. Bottom margin trimmed and cropped, lacking words from the original full caption title (the word "Emigration" retained), and Kendrick's details and address (as printmaker).

         Notes on Chinese mediaeval travellers to the west.Shanghai, American Presbyterian mission press; London, Trübner and co., 1875. 8vo. With numerous Chinese characters in text and 3 wood engraved illustrations in text. Contemporary blind- and gold-blocked cloth.

      Cordier, Sinica, col. 2667; Couling, p. 64. First separately published edition of a work on Chinese travellers from the 13th century by the Baltic physician and sinologist Emil Bretschneider (1833-1901). "His writings both on botany and geography are extremely valuable" (Couling). The book is divided into four chapters, each devoted to a different Chinese traveller or voyage to the west. Bretschneider starts each chapter with a brief introduction, followed by a translation of Chinese sources including many Chinese characters. The first chapter deals with the travels of the Taoist monk Qiu Chuji (1148-1227), who travelled to Persia and India in the years 1221-1224 to meet the Mongol Khan. The second chapter narrates the journey of a Mongol embassy to west Asia, and chapter three is an "account of Western countries", written by an envoy of the Chinese Jin dynasty around 1220. He describes the customs and culture of the "Mohameddans" he meets in the west, probably describing the city Herat in Afghanistan. The last chapter describes partly the travels of the Khitan statesman Yelü Chucai, who served Genghis Khan, to present-day Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.Presentation copy, with a note by the author to "V. Gauvain" in ink on first flyleaf. Title-page with some faint damp stains, otherwise in very good condition.

Royal quarto (287 × 224 mm), 78 pp. Contemporary maroon cross-grain half morocco, spine richly gilt in compartments, flat bands, green morocco label, straight-ribbed maroon cloth sides, marbled edges. Lithographic vignette title page, engraved list of subscribers, 30 lithographic views after sketches by the author. Bound from the parts with stab-holes visible in gutter; letterpress and plates edge-bound as usual. Joints and extremities rubbed, tips bumped, cloth unevenly faded, pp. 5-6 (unsigned but evidently sig.

[28] spotted and browned, the occasional marginal spot to other plates. A very good copy. First and only edition, rare, especially so complete, as here: three copies only traced at auction of which two lacking the subscriber's list, a third copy lacking five plates; Copac locates three copies in UK libraries (British Library, National Library of Scotland, and the V & A), OCLC adding three institutional copies world-wide of which one (the Minnesota copy) is substantially incomplete, with 56 text-pages only (the other copies in Basel and Canberra). Abbey did not have a copy, and the subscribers' list records just 87 names. Bellew (1799-1868) was employed in the Hyderabad Civil Service, rising to deputy-assistant-commissary-general for Bengal and retiring with the rank of captain in 1832. Authorship is sometimes attributed to his brother Henry Walter (1803-42), father of the noted army doctor and Afghanistan expert of the same, but Henry Sr's continuous career in the Bengal army, into which he was commissioned in 1815 and in whose service he died fighting in the First Afghan War, makes this comparatively unlikely. Francis also published an autobiography, Memoirs of a Griffin, in 1845. His accomplished sketches include topographical and architectural views mainly in northern India, including Bhimtal, Almora, Jhansi and elsewhere, as well as several views of Orchha in central India and Arakan (now in Myanmar). The errata leaves (counted in the pagination) indicate that Views in India was originally issued in at least four fascicles, which offers an explanation for its remarkable scarcity today.

In a passe-partout in a modern wooden frame painted gold (95 x 125 cm), behind glass.

      A large watercolour painting from the Meiji period showing Nagasaki harbour viewed from the city, looking across at the Papenburg (Dutch for Pope's mountain), named for the many Catholic martyrs who were thrown off the peak. A large Asian ship in the harbour (15.5 cm tall in the painting) forms a focal point in the painting, while the masts of another appear in the foreground at left. Several more Asian sailing ships appear far in the background and there are many small rowboats in the foreground and background. Of special interest is a steamboat sailing into the harbour in the background left, with two smokestacks.Ochiai Yoshiiku (1833-1904) belonged to the group of woodcut artists known as the Utagawa school, and is therefore also known as Utagawa Yoshiiku. He studied with Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1798-1861), who had studied with Tokokuni I (1769-1825), who took charge of the group when its founder, his teacher Utagawa Toyoharu (1735-1814), died. The Utagawa school is known for mixing Western traditions, especially Western perspective, into traditional Japanese styles. While most of Ochiai's work remained faithful to the traditional manner, the present painting shows a nearly pure Western perspective. This combined with the fact that his name also appears transliterated in the Latin alphabet may mean this painting was made for a European patron.With a few wrinkles in the paper slightly affecting the mountain at the right, the sky near it and the sail of the large ship, but otherwise in fine condition. A lovely and unusually large Japanese watercolour painting, showing Nagasaki harbour with many ships and boats.

         The Climate of London, Deduced from Meteorological Observations, made in the Metropolis, and at Various Places Around it. A Second, Much Enlarged and Improved Edition

      London Harvey and Darton and others 1833 - 3 volumes, 4to., vol I: v, [3], lxxii, 348 pp, 2 folding diagrams, 5 plates; vol II: [2], 407 pp.; vol III: [2], 383 pp., numerous tables within text, contemporary brown cloth gilt, medallion in blind to covers, volume III unopened, attractive bookplates to each, publisher's cloth, rebacked with original spines laid on, corners bumped, replaced endpapers, internally very bright and crisp. The 'student of clouds' or 'father of meteorology' Luke Howard (1772-1864) published this work of statistics on weather conditions in London in two volumes, in 1818 and 1820, before issuing a much improved second edition in 1833. He was the first to recognise the effect of urban areas on local climates. Howard was by profession an industrial chemist, but his great interest in meteorology led to his studies on clouds, and his devising of the system of Latin cloud names which was adopted internationally and is still in use. Volume 1 begins with an introduction to the work, explaining his intention to make available in one place consistent records of weather events. He argues that for the benefit of 'agriculture and navigation', a systematic approach is required, and he outlines his methods and equipment in some detail. The tables of observations taken at Plaistow, near London, in the years 1806-9 then begin, and are interspersed with notes and a commentary which includes accounts of similar weather phenomena observed elsewhere.
