        [SAMMELBAND OF FIFTEEN 17th-CENTURY BRITISH TRIAL ACCOUNTS FOR SERIOUS CRIMES AGAINST THE KING, PLUS ONE LATER TRIAL ACCOUNT FOR THE LAST BRITISH SUBJECT TO SUFFER EXECUTION BY BEHEADING]

      London, 1747. Publication details and pagination provided in the listing below. 20th-century tan buckram, spine gilt, leather label. Minor edge wear, soiling and staining, small gouge to top of front joint, binding broken after p.2 of first work. Library stamp to first titlepage, some short edge tears. Good. An interesting collection of 17th-century English trial accounts. Some of the works touch on or directly involve the Popish Plot, a fictitious anti-Catholic conspiracy that resulted in the executions of over twenty people. Titus Oates was the instigator of the conspiracy and his trial for perjury is present here. The trial of William Scroggs here also related to the Popish Plot - Scroggs was the chief justice of the court during the trials of those accused in the Popish Plot and is largely responsible for their convictions. The trials involving the Popish Plot here come towards the end of the hysteria. Also present here are two works relating to the trial of Elizabeth Cellier. Known as the "Popish Midwife," Cellier also suffered the vehement anti-Catholic sentiment prevelant in England at the time. She was acquitted of attempting the King's kidnapping in the "Meal-Tub Plot;" but her expose of that matter, "Malice Defeated" led to her trial for "Scandalous Libel," for which she was fined, pilloried and her book burnt.

        A SUMMARY, HISTORICAL AND POLITICAL, OF THE FIRST PLANTING, PROGRESSIVE IMPROVEMENTS, AND PRESENT STATE OF THE BRITISH SETTLEMENTS IN NORTH-AMERICA; WITH SOME TRANSIENT ACCOUNTS OF THE BORDERING FRENCH AND SPANISH SETTLEMENTS. No. 7 [- No. 8]

      Boston: Printed and sold by Rogers and Fowle in Queen-Street, 1747. Two parts, 97-112; 113-128pp. Printed wrappers containing titlepage on front and publisher's advertisements on the rear. Stitched as issued. Some light wear and soiling. Very good. Two parts of Douglass' important work, which was published in serial fashion by Boston publishers and booksellers Rogers and Fowle. Each number was published as an irregular supplement to the AMERICAN MAGAZINE, and the whole work would eventually comprise two lengthy volumes. These two parts are interesting because they show a different form of publication for mid-18th-century colonial America, and the rearmost leaf contains ads both for newly published and imported books. "First American history of the whole country" - Howes. Douglass was a Scottish physician living in Boston. Although not a work noted for its accuracy, Wroth comments, "Modern critics of the SUMMARY have overlooked the fact that its author was the first to attempt this story from the viewpoint of a resident American...," and further quotes a contemporary critic in the MONTHLY REVIEW as finding it "a fuller and more circumstantial account of North-America, than is any where else to be met with." In his PRESENT STATE OF NORTH AMERICA (London, 1755) John Huske wrote: "There is not one Work yet published to the World in our Language that in any Degree deserves the Title of a History of North America, but Smith's HISTORY OF VIRGINIA, and Douglass's SUMMARY...And this last is only valuable for being the best Collection of facts in general, for a future Historian, that was ever made or published." An interesting peek at colonial publishing history, and a work of major importance in the writing of American history. HOWES D436. CLARK I:226. WROTH, AMERICAN BOOKSHELF, pp.87-91. SABIN 20726.

Indietro liscio decorato carne al glande e figura coda (DD). come Allegato pelle rossa. Un gap nella cassa d'afflusso. superiore testa mascella spaccata e coda. 2 angoli urtato. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, rare. Reliure en plein veau granité d'époque. Dos lisse orné de fers au gland et au chiffre en queue (DD). Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Un manque dans le caisson de tête. Mors supérieur fendu en tête et queue. 2 coins émoussés. Large succès de librairie au XVIIIe, la seule année 1747 connaîtra de nombreuses rééditions, le roman espistolaire met sur le devant de la scène une jeune indienne séparée de son fiancé par la conquête du Pérou par les Espagnols. Captive des envahisseurs, Zilia sera rachetée par un officier français. Débarquant à la cour de Louis XV, la jeune fille portera témoignage de tout ce qu'elle voit et éclaire d'un regard singulier les travers de la société de l'ancien régime. L'oeuvre tient à la fois des Lettres portugaises de Guillerages et des Lettres persanes de Montesquieu, mais dans style lyrique et sentimental, toutes les lettres adressées à Aza portant le sceau de la séparation. Outre le regard d'une étrangère sur les moeurs françaises de l'époque, on retiendra de nos jours que l'oeuvre nous peint l'évolution spirituelle et physique d'une femme seule, marchandée, séparée, déchirée entre son appartenance à une ancienne culture et sa vie en France, entre son amour ancien et les exigences d'une passion nouvelle qu'elle a sucitée. NB : Cet ouvrage est disponible à la librairie sur demande sous 48 heures.

      L'Aia 1747 - Carta storico-geografica che mostra i posti occupati dall'Armata Imperiale austriaca il 16 aprile 1747, durante l'assedio di Genova, nel tentativo, poi fallito, di conquistarla. Le forze austriache guidate da Schulenberg raggiunsero la periferia della città in aprile, ma realizzando di non avere forze a sufficienza per lanciare un'offensiva, dovettero aspettare fino a giugno l'arrivo di dodici battaglioni di fanteria da parte dei loro alleati sardi. Questi ritardi permisero a spagnoli e francesi di mandare altre truppe in città al comando Marshal Boufflers per rafforzare la guarnigione. L'avvicinamento delle forze franco-spagnole al comando di Marshal Belle-Isle indusse i sardi a ritirarsi, e Schulenberg abbandonò l'assedio accusando gli alleati. Titoli e rubrica alfabetica A-X bilingue francese -olandese. Edita da Antoine De Groot & eredi. Acquaforte, impressa su carta vergata coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Dimensioni 595 505mm

        A SUMMARY, HISTORICAL AND POLITICAL, OF THE FIRST PLANTING, PROGRESSIVE IMPROVEMENTS, AND PRESENT STATE OF THE BRITISH SETTLEMENTS IN NORTH- AMERICA; WITH SOME TRANSIENT ACCOUNTS OF THE BORDERING FRENCH AND SPANISH SETTLEMENTS. No. 7 [- No. 8].

      Boston: Printed and sold by Rogers and Fowle in Queen-Street, 1747. - Two parts, 97-112; 113-128pp. Printed wrappers containing titlepage on front and publisher's ads on the rear. Stitched as issued. Some light wear and soiling. Very good. Two parts of Douglass' important work, which was published in serial fashion by Boston publishers and booksellers Rogers and Fowle. Each number was published as an irregular supplement to the AMERICAN MAGAZINE, and the whole work would eventually comprise two lengthy volumes. These two parts are interesting because they show a different form of publication for mid-18th-century colonial America, and the rearmost leaf contains ads both for newly published and imported books. "First American history of the whole country" - Howes. Douglass was a Scottish physician living in Boston. Although not a work noted for its accuracy, Wroth comments, "Modern critics of the SUMMARY have overlooked the fact that its author was the first to attempt this story from the viewpoint of a resident American.," and further quotes a contemporary critic in the MONTHLY REVIEW as finding it "a fuller and more circumstantial account of North-America, than is any where else to be met with." In his PRESENT STATE OF NORTH AMERICA (London, 1755) John Huske wrote: "There is not one Work yet published to the World in our Language that in any Degree deserves the Title of a History of North America, but Smith's HISTORY OF VIRGINIA, and Douglass's SUMMARY.And this last is only valuable for being the best Collection of facts in general, for a future Historian, that was ever made or published." An interesting peek at colonial publishing history, and a work of major importance in the writing of American history. HOWES D436. CLARK I:226. WROTH, AMERICAN BOOKSHELF, pp.87-91. SABIN 20726.

        Leger B of Henry Dewitt & Dirk W. Ten Broek in Company, 1738 (sic)

      Kingston, NY, 1747. Good +. A ledger from the transitional period from Dutch to English control in colonial New York, showing the Dutch roots of the state's commerce and culture. The manuscript account book was for the company of Henry Dewitt and Dirk Tenbroek, merchants in Kingston NY and is written in Old Dutch. Most of the early names recorded in the ledger are Dutch, while the later 1740s, they are written in English. The ledger also includes a 1740 record of a slave purchase by Philip Livingston, a statesman of Dutch lineage who later signed the Declaration of Independence. The Kingston company of Dewitt and Ten Broeck was owned by influential early Dutch families. Dirck W Ten Broeck (1715 - ?) also played a role in the Revolution. He represented the manor of Livingston in the Provincial Assembly during the Revolution when it met at Kingston in 1777, and again in 1778 in Poughkeepsie. He remained an Assembly representative until 1783. The most extensive accounts in the ledger are those for Philip Livingston (1716- 1878), who at the time was in business with his father, also Philip Livingston (1686 - 1749) trading slaves in the West Indies and Africa through their company Philip Livingston & Sons. The ledger records Philip Livingston's purchase of a slave on February 13, 1740 in Dutch: "Voor 1 neger gelevert (For 1 Negro delivered) 32 pounds" (p80). The ledger entries are recorded in Dutch until 1741; the entries recorded in English begin in 1744. Philip Livingston Sr. spent much time in New York City; he owned several ships used for privateering and the triangle trade. By the 1730s Livingston & Sons were one of New York's leading importers of slave labor from the sugar islands. Wall Street's official slave market existed from 1711 to 1762; slavery wasn't fully abolished in New York state until 1827. The ledger also records Livingston's other purchases, mainly fur pelts are recorded here from 1743 to 1747 in ruled charts headed "Philip Livingston, his account current in peltry with Henry DeWitt". Livingston Jr. became active raising funds and troops to fight the British. In 1759, he was elected to the New York House of Representatives and attended the Stamp Act Congress. When New York established a rebel government in 1775, he became the President of the Provincial Convention, and a delegate to the Continental Congress. There Livingston supported separation from Britain. In 1776 he joined other Continental Congress delegates in signing the Declaration of Independence. New Netherland was founded by the Dutch as a place of religious refuge and a center of free trade. In 1664 New Amsterdam under Peter Stuyvesant was forced to surrender to the English without a struggle, but this didn't mark the end of Dutch influence in the city or in the Hudson Valley. The Dutch kept a linguistic presence, with Dutch words entering the American vernacular, and Dutch place names remaining, such as Brooklyn (Breuckelen), Harlem (Haarlem) and Broadway (Breede Wegh). The street layout of lower Manhattan below Wall Street, as well as Kingston and Albany was made by the Dutch. Kingston was originally named Wiltwyck by the Dutch, and along with Beverwyck (Albany) was an important Dutch settlement on the Hudson. Other Dutch families recorded in the ledger include Gansevoort, Tappan, Beekman, Coursaler, Colden, Delameter, Dubois, Masten, Merkel, Oosterhaut, Pawling, Rensellaer, Rutsen, Steenburgh, Sleght, Schoonmaker, Ten Eyck, Tenbroek, Van Beuren, Van Nostrand, Vandenburgh, Vansteenburgh, and Van Vliet. These customers made purchases of dry goods, beverages, grains and meals, and pottery. Folio, 8 1/4 x 12 1/2". Title page, [3] pp customer index, 114pp. Has the rear paper covered board but lacks front cover and spine binding. Some leaves and gatherings detached but present. A few final leaves marked and worn, otherwise in remarkably good condition, text bright and legible. An important early record of commerce in colonial New York showing the central role of the descendants of the original Dutch settlers in the Hudson Valley right through the middle of the 18th century.
