GAY, John
Bernard Lintott [1716], London. Octavo (5-1/2" x 8-3/4") bound in full polished calf with gilt-ruled borders and gilt dentelles by F. Bedford. One of only 250 copies of the Large Paper Issue with the engraved headpiece and ornaments. Gay's best remembered poem and thought by many to be the greatest poem written on life in London in English literature. This copy has a most distinguished provenance with the bookplates of Helen Hay Whitney on the front free endpaper and those of Henry & Elizabeth Mary Collins and Robert Hoe on the front pastedown. On the front blank are several neat older notes establishing an earlier provenance including "Heber's 4th sale 1834. No. 889" and "From Dr. Bliss's Sale. 3 July 1858." In a very small hand might be a reference to the 1803 sale of the John Woodhouse library. Clean copy recently and sympathetically rebacked with gilt decorations and the original burgundy gilt-lettered morocco spine label.

[La Compagnie du Castor] Claude de Ramezay, Sieur Nicolas de la Lanouillier, and 9 others.
Montreal: August 27, 1716. Good/In 1715, the Compagnie du Castor, directed by Nicolas de la Lanouillier, retained the monopoly on the beaver trade in Canada. The company failed to honor its bills of exchange that year, and failed in all of its payments the following spring. The company scrambled to hire intermediary suppliers to deal with the rough trappers and traders at the bottom of the fur trade, but the middlemen refused to function without guarantees of payment. The present document is a declaration made by the company director in the presence of (no less than!) the acting governor of New France, Claude de Ramezay, that a certain supplier named Brire, "who does not know how to write," delivered 190 packs of dry beaver weighing 120 pounds each, and that it was duly noted in the Bureau of Beaver Inventory (Bureau de la Recette des Castors) in Montreal. The document is signed by Lanouillier, Ramezay, and several prominent merchants. There is a note of panic in the assembly of big shots to guarantee a transaction between the monopoly and an illiterate trader. By 1720, the Compagnie du Castor was amalgamated into the Compagnie des Indes. . 1 leaf folio (35cm); torn at bottom edge with loss of text at lower right of recto and damage to signatures at lower left of verso. Repaired with blank white paper, which has toned to tan. Main text and signatures still present and legible. Condition noted. Reference: Lande, Political Economy of New France, #214.

First American printing, and a very early New York imprint, of this treatise on the powers, procedures, and activities of the Parliament, originally published in London in 1690.

This is one of the very few Bradford imprints that list the names of both father and son. "We are unable to trace the sale of any copy (except Mr W. Menzies') of this most rare book" - Sabin. The Menzies copy sold for a remarkable $27 in 1875. Authorship is ascribed by Evans. The North American Imprints Project locates twelve copies. Rare on the market, and in an early American binding, likely done by William Bradford's own shop. EVANS 1850. NAIP w013590. COHEN 5802. SABIN 58055. MENZIES SALE 1531. BRINLEY SALE 3430.
