[Dallas, Alexander J.],  
An Exposition Of The Causes And Character Of The Late War Between The United States And Great-Britain
 Picture
Publisher: William Slade, Jun. Middlebury, Vermont 1815.
First Edition Very good in early light brown leather (calf) covered boards with a more recently applied cloth back strip to the spine. The pages of the text block are rough cut and uniformly tanned with age. 59 pages of text. This title, although written without attribution, recognizes its authorship on the copyright page as Alexander J. Dallas. Dallas was the U.S. secretary of the treasury under James Madison. During his tenure as treasury secretary he realized that the War of 1812 was going to bankrupt the country so he took definitive steps to save the country financially by advocating the end of the war and recommending an increase of taxes. Considered "mildly scarce" by Howes. (Howes, D-25; only the Boston printing noted by Sabin, 18130)Our code number = TB26698

Beirne, Francis F., Illustrated by: De Fontaine, Dorothy  
The War of 1812
 Picture
Publisher: E. P. Dutton and Company, 1949 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. Poor. Hardcover Inscribed by Author(s) 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall INSCRIBED on front endpaper: "To Miss Ellen R. Harker in the / hope that she will get some enjoy- / ment out of these pages, and with / the best wishes of the author - / Francis F. Beirne." "The War of 1812 receives mention, of course, in all general histories of the United States. In recent years individual incidents or special phases have served as subjects for historical or fictional treatment. But, so far as the writer has been able to discover, not since Benson J. Lossing published his Field Boor in 1868 has anyone presented a volume devoted exclusively to the war as a whole. The present work was, therefore, undertaken with the purpose of filling the gap and bringing up to date events which happened long ago but which have an important bearing on the happenings of today. It is the belief of the writer that those who persevere until the end of the story will discover many things that will surprise them. It is his hope that they will feel their effort has been worth while.." Illustrated with 11 maps by Dorothy de Fontaine. 410 pages with index. Book is in GOOD condition. Dust jacket is present, but in POOR condition.

History of the Battle of Lake Erie (September 10, 1813) and Reminiscences of the Flagships Lawrence and Niagara
 Picture
Publisher: Ashby Printing Company, Publishers, 1913 Erie, PA.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall "In offering this pamphlet to the public, it may be deemed necessary to offer some apology. There have been many accounts of Perry's Victory, Sept. 10th, 1813, published. Yet in consequence of the unfortunate feud existing between Perry and Elliott and their friends, the accounts partook somewhat of an ex parte character. This is not a correct way to hand down passing events to posterity. In writing history, facts should be given as nearly as possible, not fiction. My father, Sailing Master Daniel Dobbins, was a pioneer in the construction of the squadron, and served actively upon the upper lakes during the war. From conversations during his lifetime, as also memoranda and other papers left by him - in connection with the accounts given by McKenzie, Cooper and Lossing, I have compiled this little book. I hope the reader will excuse the commonplace style of composition, as it is the effort of an illiterate sailor." Illustrated. 156 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. There is a bookplate from a library one the front inside cover and a card pocket on the rear inside cover, but no other library markings. Binding is very good; text pages clean. No dust jacket.

Horsman, Reginald  
The War of 1812
 Picture
Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf, 1969 New York.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Good to Very Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "In late June, 1812, as Napoleon's great army crossed the Nieman to invade Russia, a tiny American force was struggling across the Ohio wilderness to begin the invasion of Canada. Desperation rather than a set of realistic objectives impelled the United States to declare war against England in June 1812. Above all the recognition of American rights at sea was desired, but the last-minute repeal of the British Orders in Council ironically left the United States fighting largely out of resentment of past injustice; only the ending of impressments remained as a tangible war aim. By 1814 the war, entered into so confidently by many in the United States, appeared likely to bring complete disaster. With England victorious in Europe, British ships and veterans crossed the Atlantic to dismember a weak and disunited United States. But in a near-miraculous fashion this was avoided, and by 1815 the war could be regarded as a success: no American territory was lost and the government did not collapse. In this lucid and concise history of the War of 1812, based on an examination of original sources in both England and the United States, Mr. Horsman stresses the extent to which both the Americans and the British were shocked at the course of events--the Americans because of the abject failure of their attempts to invade Canada, and the British by the surprising American naval victories. He shows how the War of 1812--to the English a minor incident soon forgotten--gave the Canadians a new sense of their national identity and marked the end of an era for the United States, which had not only survived the conflict but would henceforth be a force to be reckoned with by any European power holding territory in the Western hemisphere." 286 pages with index. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD to VERY GOOD condition; several small tears to edges.

House of Representatives of Massachusetts  
Address of the House of Representatives to the People of Massachusetts (Declaration of the War of 1812)

Publisher: State of Massachusetts Massachusettes 1812.
14 pages, more recently bound in lovely marbled paper with brown cloth spine. Some age spotting, fairly heavy on initial page and otherwise lightly scattered throughout. Good clean condition otherwise. A decidedly crabby assessment of the decision to declare war on Great Britain in 1812. The arguments sound hauntingly familiar. This sentence is a sample: 'The approbation of War measures by a minority in this branch and by certain members of Congress from this state, exhibits you as a divided people to those who triumph in your divisions, as a source of their own power; and the National Government has been induced to believe that your fears and dissentions combined with your sober habits, and natural aversion from the appearance of opposition to the laws, are sufficient pledges for your tame acquiescence in the abandonment of your local interests, and for your supporting at the expense of your blood and treasure, a war, unnecessary, unjustifiable and impolitic. which under the pretence of vindicating the independence of our country against a nation which does not threaten it, must too probably consign your liberties to the care of a tyrant who has blotted every vestige of independence from the continent of Europe.'

The War of 1812: A Compact History
 Picture
Publisher: Hawthorn Books, Inc., 1969 New York.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Good to Very Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "'We view the declaration of war as we view the cataract at Niagara--as one of the wonders of the world.' Thus a newspaper of the day described the onset of the War of 1812, a war neither the United States nor Great Britain wanted, but one they 'drifted into'. British and American interests clashed in the Northwest Territory and the Gulf of Mexico region when American expansionists felt that the time and circumstances were ripe to attempt to enlarge the territory of the United States. Commercial rivalry, land-grabbing greed, sporadic episodes at sea, combined with a lack of intelligent negotiation, led at last to war. The war's inauspicious beginning for the United States--the surrender of Detroit--reflected a crisis in the military preparedness of the United States Army, but early defeat was staved off by isolated successful naval engagements in which the fledgling American Navy battled the world's greatest naval power. The consequences of the war were profound for both the United States and Great Britain; its military encounters were often dramatic, displaying heroism and cowardice, brilliance and abject stupidity, careful planning and clumsy inadvertence. But when Britain ended her war with Napoleon and brought her armies in force to defeat the new American nation--and after the quick capitulation of Washington, D.C.--the Americans were able at last to repel the British and did so decisively under Andrew Jackson at New Orleans.." 224 pages with index.

Larry L. Nelson  
MEN OF PATRIOTISM, COURAGE & ENTERPRISE! Fort Meigs in the War of 1812

Publisher: Heritage Books.
ISBN: 0788407287. BRAND NEW Softcover - The title of this fine book comes from a recruiting broadside published in Marietta, Ohio, July 29, 1812. The broadside was addressed "to men of patriotism, courage and enterprise" and promised five dollars a month pay plus 160 acres of land at the end of an honorable enlistment. Here Larry L. Nelson, the site director of the Fort Meigs State Memorial in Perrysburg, Ohio, carefully follows the chronology of major events surrounding Fort Meigs. He recounts with thorough documentation the decisions and performances of the famous leaders on both sides of the conflict. However, he also uses many previously unknown sources, including diaries, journals and personal letters to evoke the emotional effects of the war's many sacrifices and bloody confrontations. The insights provided by these intimate sources give the reader a chance to examine the lives of the officers and soldiers in light of those recruiting poster ideals of patriotism, courage and enterprise. The narrative focus of the book is the period from February through September of 1813, when the American forces at Fort Meigs, on the south bank of the Maumee river near Lake Erie, repelled two major attacks by the British and Indian forces. Gen. William Henry Harrison, commander of the army of the northwestern frontier and future president of the U.S., was the most colorful figure on the American side. His British counterpart was Colonel Henry Proctor, but the great Indian leader, Tecumseh, is perhaps the most legendary figure involved with Fort Meigs. Many militia units from countries in Ohio and Kentucky are mentioned. A fullname and subject index is included, and all sources are cited in notes at the end of each chapter as well as in the bibliography. About thirty drawings, etchings, photos and maps help bring the stories to life. Publisher List Price= $20

Lossing, Benson J.  
PICTORIAL FIELD BOOK OF THE WAR OF 1812 - Or, Illustrations, By Pen And Pencil, Of The History, Biography, Scenery, Relics, And Traditions Of The Last War For American Independence

Publisher: Heritage Books.
ISBN: 0788425544. BRAND NEW Book on CD Rom - Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, PC and MAC, 1086 pp . Mr. Lossing "traveled more than ten thousand miles…visiting places of historic interest connected with the War of 1812, from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico, gathering up, recording, and delineating every thing of special value, not found in books…and making himself familiar with the topography and incidents of the battlefields of that war." Through access to the archives of governments, state and national, and to private collections and personal accounts of the events of that struggle, which otherwise might have been lost, he received the most interesting information concerning the war. "An account is given of the perils of the country immediately succeeding the Revolution; the struggles of the new nation with the allied powers of British and Indians in the Northwest; the origin and growth of political parties in the United States, and their relations to the War of 1812; the influence of the French Revolution and French politics in giving complexion to parties in this country; the first war with the Barbary Powers; the effects of the wars of Napoleon on the public policy of the United States; the Embargo and kindred acts, and the kindling of the war in 1812." A subject, place and fullname index plus a list of illustrations covering the page numbers of over 800 drawings and maps placed throughout the text allow the researcher easy access to information
