He was also an important figure in the suffrage movement. Sabin 20714. Good. No jacket. Boards rubbed with several light spots and minor loss from spine head & foot, spine toned. $750 2.

5 INSCRIBED & SIGNED BY SIXTH PRESIDENT
12. [Americana] [Signed] Adams, John Quincy Oration on the Life and Character of Gilbert Motier de Lafayette. Delivered at the Request of Both Houses of the Congress of the United States, Before Them, in the House of Representatives at Washington, on the 31st of December, 1834. Washington: Gales and Seaton, 1835. First edition. Signed & inscribed to William Hawley by John Quincy Adams on front wrapper. 94 pp. Original light blue wrappers, black stamped titles & borders. A biographical speech given by the former President of the United States of America while a member of the House of Representatives. Gilbert Motier de Lafayette, or the Marquis de La Fayette - though more commonly known simply as Lafayette - was among the most important figures in the American Revolution, serving under George Washington in the Continental Army, and playing a major role in securing French support for the rebelling colonies. This document recounts the early life of Lafayette, his support of the revolutionary cause, and his subsequent return to France. It also discusses the ways in which Lafayette’s political views coincided with the goals of colonists rebelling against British rule, and praises him not specifically as a supporter of the United States, but rather as that rare individual who staunchly supports what he believes is right for humanity. Of equal interest is that this speech was presented by John Quincy Adams, an impressive man and politician in his own right. He held the offices of Secretary of State, President, and Congressman, wrote the Monroe Doctrine, and continued the legacy of one of the most important political families in United States history, which began with his father John Adams, and continued for two more generations.

Complete in five volumes in flexible black wrappers. Includes publisher’s blue-green cloth slipcase with gilt titles. A collection of the childhood notebooks of Princess Marie Bonaparte in facsimile, providing a glimpse into the childhood of a girl of the 19th century. Bonaparte was most well-known as the great grand-niece of Emperor Napoleon I, as the benefactor of Sigmund Freud (she paid his ransom to Nazi Germany), and as a scholar on the subject of female sexuality. She also published a critical biography of Edgar Allan Poe. “Bonaparte’s discovery of these enigmatic childhood writings and drawings among the papers of her father, Roland Bonaparte, after his death in 1924 prompted her to seek an analysis with Freud. For several years thereafter, beginning in the autumn of 1925, Bonaparte, now in her forties, traveled to Vienna for the analysis, each time staying several months (1952a, 3:313). She found in Freud what she desperately needed—a new ‘father’ to love and serve. He was superior to Roland Bonaparte in two significant respects: he accepted her intellectual aspirations, and he took seriously the ideas that disturbed her life. During the analysis Bonaparte shared her copy-books with Freud, and following it began writing psychoanalytic commentaries on them. Simultaneously she wrote a series of essays on female sexuality that were deeply influenced by her study of her childhood copy-books.” (American Imago, Vol. 60, No. 3, Fall 2003) Near fine.

62. [Military Architecture] Batcheller, W. [William] A New History of Dover Castle, during the Roman, Saxon, and Norman Governments, with a Short Account of the Cinque Ports, Compiled from Ancient Records, and Continued to the Present Time; Embellished with Four Plates, & Illustrated by Four Plans. To Which is Added a New Dover Guide, and a Description of the Villages Near Dover. Privately Published by William Batcheller, King’s Arms Library, Dover, 1828. vi, 365, xv, ii. Inscribed & signed by author on front flyleaf: ‘James Drummond / Dover Eng. / Nov 1st 1833 / From his Friend William Batcheller / of the Kings Arms Library’. Batcheller had built the King’s Arms Library just two years previous, at 1-2 Snargate Street in Dover, and it housed a stationery shop, a library boasting about 6000 volumes, a reading room, and an assembly room where dances and other public gatherings were held. About 100 pages is dedicated specifically to the castle, including sections treating the Roman, Saxon, and Norman influences on its architecture, with plates illustrating these sections. Plates of the town and port, and Dover and environs, appear later. Dover Castle is unique, in that it was the site of fortifications as early as the time of William the Conqueror, saw several important sieges, and also served as a military installation in World War II, when underground components were added (or existing ones modified) to create a bunker against German bombings. That with the mixture of architectural styles make it one of the more studied castles in England. Reprints of this work released in the mid-19th century purporting to be expanded seem only to include new information and illustrations pertaining to the town and ports (specifically with regards to the harbor).
