Captain Clark was convicted of murder and sentenced to death after he fatally shot Captain Innes in a duel. He received a royal pardon almost immediately afterwards. The trial, reported in detail and apparently verbatim, is remarkable for the number of distinguished character witnesses produced for the defence.

Both are scarce. Concerning the London edition, OCLC locates 11 copies, 3 copies in North America, 1 in a law library (University of Minnesota). English Short-Title Catalogue T25541.

        The Archbishop of Cambray's Dissertation on Pure Love, with an Account of the Life and Writings of the Lady, for whose sake the Archbishop was banish'd from Court.

      Germantown, PA: Christopher Sowr, 1750. - 8vo., (7 3/8 x 4 5/8 inches). (A bit browned throughout). Contemporary full brown sheep, the spine in six compartments separated by five raised bands (extremities a bit worn with loss). Provenance: Contemporary manuscript ownership inscription dated 1762 to flyleaf. Doyle, sale 13BP04, 2013, Lot 311. Second Pennsylvania edition, third edition overall, first published in London in 1735 and first published in Pennsylvania in 1738. Fénelon was a French Roman Catholic archbishop, theologian, poet and writer. He is remembered primarily as the author of "The Adventures of Telemachus," first published in 1699. The "Lady" referred to in the title is Jeanne-Marie Bouvier de la Motte-Guyon, commonly known as Madame Guyon, a French mystic and one of the key advocates of Quietism, although she never called herself a Quietist. Quietism was considered heretical by the Roman Catholic Church, and she was imprisoned from 1695 to 1703 after publishing a book on the topic, "A Short and Easy Method of Prayer." Fénelon first met Madame Guyon in 1688, and soon became one of her most well-known disciples. "In fact, so popular among the Quakers were both Fénelon and Guyon, that their texts were repeatedly translated and published throughout Pennsylvania during both the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. In 1738, William Bradford published excerpts from Fénelon's theological works, as well as the autobiography of Madame Guyon in a work entitled 'The Archbishop of Cambray's Dissertation on Pure Love, with an account of the Life and Writings of the Lady, for whose sake the Archbishop was banished from the Court.' This was re-published by Christopher Sauer, again in Pennsylvania, in 1750 [as here]. In this reprint Guyon was characterized as 'a martyr to Catholic intolerance, a Protestant in disguise, or an example of inner perfection ' Numerous German translations of Guyon and Fénelon's work were also published by Pennsylvania Quakers, such as Johann Kayser and Gerhard Teersteegen, during the same period" (Karen Pagani, "Forgiveness and the Age of Reason," p. 308).

        Lengthy Colonial full inventory and accounting of the Pine Forge Iron Plantation, the earliest Pennsylvania Iron Forge. The Forge supplied munitions to George Washington's Continental Army. Although 67 slaves are listed on the plantation, ultimately the Forge became a center of abolitionism and a stop on the Underground Railroad!

      Pennsylvania, ca. 1750. 8" x 13". "Manuscript Document, 4 pages, 8"" x 13"", [Bucks County, Pennsylvania, c. 1770], describing the buildings, lands and people of the Pine Forge Iron Plantation, known as Pine Forge Mansion, and in particular, an inventory of 67 ""Negroes"" residing on the premises. Expected folds, with slight tearing along fold seams. Occasional faint foxing.A fascinating document listing the specific contents of the five contributing buildings, the land sites, and various structures. Inclusive of the stone mansion, or manor house, the stone root cellar and smokehouse, ""caretaker's cottage"", the garage and small stone ""worker's house"". Includes a detailed accounting of the occupation and ages of the 67 ""Negro' slaves who worked the mansion described in paragraph No. Four as follows:""No. 4 Negroes16 Forgemen1 Forge Carpenter1 Black Smith2 Founders9 Colliers & Labourers9 Woman3 do 16 years old3 Lads 16 years6 Boys from 6 to 13 do11 Girls from 5 to 13 do10 Children from 1 to 4do2 Young ChildrenIn all………67 ~""It was customary in the North, that those who owned furnaces and forges acquired and exploited slaves as an integral part of a strategy to discipline white wage workers and maximize proprietary control over the manufacture of charcoal iron. Making charcoal iron was both capital and labor-intensive. In New England, ironmasters and other capitalists during the seventeenth century had forged unruly white workers into a labor force that suited their needs by relying on a ""culture of discipline"", northern proprietors never intended to supplant waged labor with that of slaves but instead looked to slavery to make free labor more manageable.Later, the Iron forge was used to supply munitions to George Washington's Continental Army. Of further interest, by approximately 1830, the Rutgers, (the owners of the Forge), spoke out against slavery allowing their Forge to become the first stop for the underground railroad for slaves leaving Montgomery County and entering Berks [County]. The trail, which ran from Pottstown to Pottsville, cut through Berks County from Pine Forge to Hamburg. Pine Forge Mansion was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2004. "

        S. M. Charles X. Roi de France el de Navarre. NŽ ˆ Versailles. 1757

      Artist: Basset-Himely Verlagshaus -1840 Paris; Issued in: Paris; date: c 1757 1750 - Artist: Basset-Himely Verlagshaus 1750-1840, Paris; Issued in: Paris; date: c. 1757; - Condition: Tear on left and upper margin perfectly restored; Charles X (Charles Philippe 9 October 1757 Ð 6 November 1836) was known for most of his life as the Count of Artois before he reigned as King of France from 16 September 1824 until 2 August 1830. An uncle of the uncrowned King Louis XVII, and younger brother to reigning Kings Louis XVI and Louis XVIII, he supported the latter in exile and eventually succeeded him. His rule of almost six years ended in the July Revolution of 1830, which resulted in his abdication and the election of Louis Philippe, Duke of OrlŽans, as King of the French. Exiled once again, Charles died in Gorizia, then part of the Austrian Empire. He was the last of the French rulers from the senior branch of the House of Bourbon descended from King Henry IV. Charles's political awakening started with the first great crisis of the monarchy in 1786, when it became apparent that the kingdom was bankrupt from previous military endeavours (in particular the Seven Years' War and the American War of Independence) and needed fiscal reform to survive. Charles supported the removal of the aristocracy's financial privileges, but was opposed to any reduction in the social privileges enjoyed by either the Church or the nobility. He believed that France's finances should be reformed without the monarchy being overthrown. In his own words, it was time for repair, not demolition.

Epistola ad Alexandrum Pascoli", pp. 52. Dopo aver descritto gli organi, l'A. precisa le loro funzioni, quindi espone le osservazioni che la pratica gli ha dato occasione di fare sulle malattie. Il perugino Alessandro Pascoli (1669 - 1757) fu Protomedico Generale dello Stato Ecclesiastico e Lettore Primario di Medicina nella Sapienza di Roma. Pubblicò quest'opera nel 1700, con notevole successo, tanto che ebbe numerose edizioni. Interessante anche l'"epistola" al Pascoli che raccoglie una serie di esperimenti realizzati da Giorgio Baglivi (1668 - 1707), eminente figura in campo medico. Cfr.

        A serious proposal for promoting lawful and honourable marriage.

      8vo., (2) 74pp., first and last leaves rather dust-soiled, short closed tear in title (no loss), old maroon half morocco over marbled boards, neatly rebacked to match, gilt lines and old label. A good copy. A marvellous, and very early, proposal for a marriage agency in London. The author observes that there are a significant number of young, eligible, unmarried women in the capital who "thro' either choice or necessity, have cultivated so slender, or ill-suited an acquaintance amongst single men, as not to be able, on a fair examination of their own hearts, seriously to approve of any one in their whole circle, that might be inclined to make overtures of marriage". And at the same time the author observes that "there are ..... many single ladies, in and about this great city of London, who, thro' too confined an education, and severe restraint, have not been so properly introduced into the world as they ought; and have, by that means, lost many advantages, in respect of marriage .....". From page 34 the author describes in detail the scheme he has in mind. There were 23 rules of engagement, as it were, which together make up the essentials of how it was all planned to work. In the first place, there were to be "two public offices ..... at two different parts of the city; viz. one near Temple-Bar, and the other near Charing-Cross: this to be called, The Ladies Office; and that, The Gentleman's". (Thus avoiding "as much as possible, all impertinent curiosity, of either sex"). Each office to have a registrar who would attend on each Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday", from 11am to 2pm and from 5pm to 8pm. Records would be kept on the payment of a one guinea registration fee. These records, all duly stamped and recorded, would include a "letter of description" of each client, giving essential details (age, height, complexion, "fortune" or financial status, profession or trade, &c. &c. and pseudonym). The register of clients would be available to view on certain days for one shilling per view. "Rule XII. That if any gentleman, or lady, on looking over their opposite registers, shall approve of any description, and circumstances, as there entered, so as to desire an interview with such person; on sending a letter, directed to the said office as above, and subscribed by his or her second name, or popular name, with the number on the stamp before the date, of such proposal; the same shall be immediately communicated to such lady, or gentleman, and his or her answer thereto, transmitted, as soon as received". There would be a further fee payable when an "interview" was arranged. Strict rules governed such meetings - to take place in "a private house of reputation and credit", to have no locks or bolts on the doors, and to have a guard "constantly on call".Throughout his description of the proposal, the author clearly sees it as imperative that "undiscoverable privacy" and probity of behaviour were both essential. "Rudeness, or indecency of any kind whatsoever" were to be avoided at all costs.

        Veduta generale del monastero di Vallombrosa.

      - Firenze, tiratura della fine del XIX secolo. Incisione in rame all’acquaforte, b/n, cm 55 x 143 ca. (alla lastra), stampata su quattro fogli poi uniti. Al margine inf. sin. Ant. Cioci Florent. delin. et sculpsit anno 1750, titolo didascalico lungo tutto il margine inferiore "Deiparae Virgini in coelum [.] Vallisumbrosae [ ] prospectum Sacri Monasterii [ ]", nove didascalie in calce, ai lati del titolo, sul margine inferiore, al margine inf. ds. D. A. A. F. C. Grande e bella veduta del Monastero di Vallombrosa e del territorio circostante, con scene di vita contadina; le umili abitazioni dei religiosi dell'Ordine fanno da sfondo al paesaggio circosante. Edizione della fine del XIX secolo. L'incisione è tratta dalle "Vedute di Vallombrosa e dintorni e del monastero o badia benedettina" (Antonio Donati del. e inc., Firenze, 1784), un album in folio oblungo composto da una stupenda serie di trentasei vedute incise da Antonio Donati (pittore e incisore toscano attivo nella seconda metà del XVIII secolo), tutte firmate dall’artista nell’angolo inferiore destro. Si tratta di vedute all’acquaforte che raffigurano edifici, vedute e paesaggi, risaltando le bellezze naturali della zona dell’Appennino toscano, dove Vallombrosa è situata, e il Monastero di Vallombrosa, con nome Monastero di Santa Maria Assunta (XI - XII sec.), è la più importante di queste vedute (ne citiamo alcune altre: Ponte di Tosi, San Gualberto, Masso del Diavolo, Mulino della Badia, Eremo delle Celle, Castello di Ristonchi, Eremo della Macinaia). (Cfr.: Thieme - Becker, IX, p. 427; Dizionario degli incisori Bolaffi, IV, p. 183). Curiosità sempre viva hanno suscitato i monasteri, soprattutto quelli di Vallombrosa e Camaldoli che, assenti dalle comuni agende di viaggio, sono sempre stati destinazioni predilette per i naturalisti e i pellegrini. Nel secolo romantico del vedutismo divennero invece, per la loro posizione erta, isolata e immersa nella natura, i luoghi prediletti per i pittori di paesaggio e il fascino di questi siti è stato catturato nel tempo da molti illustri visitatori: fu Milton a inaugurare, nel 1639, la consuetudine di compiere un’escursione al convento di Vallombrosa, la cui fitta vegetazione gli servirà da modello per la descrizione de Paradiso Terrestre (Brilli, 1993); al convento sono legati Cellini, Ariosto e Lamartine, che lo visitarono e lo cantarono; Valéry giudica Vallombrosa "una Chartreuse dell’Appennino, meno aspra di quella delle Alpi, con il cielo di Italia e la vista del mare". Nella chiesa del monastero di Vallombrosa, fondato dal monaco San Gualberto nell’XI secolo, si conservano le reliquie del fondatore, seppure non il corpo. Carta uniformemente un poco ingiallita, come tipico di molta carta ottocentesca, peraltro buono lo stato di conservazione.

        Torah, nevi'im u-khetuvim Biblia hebraica sine punctis Accurante Nath Forster

      Oxonii: E Typographeo Clarendoniano 4to (24 cm; 9.5"). 2 vols. in 1. I: [4], 126, [1], 110 ff. II: [1], 116, [1], 142 ff.. 1750 Late as the date may seem for it, this is the first separate edition of the Hebrew Bible printed in England, preceded only by the printing of the text as part of the Walton Polyglot. Editor Nathaniel Forster (1718–57), an accomplished scholar of Greek, Latin, and Hebrew, has included (in the style of the table of contents) "Pentateuchus, Prophetae priores, Prophetae posteriores, Hagiographa"; the leaves following "Prophetae posteriores" are separately signed and printed "Vol. 2." Based on Van der Hoogh's version, the text is in Hebrew, with titles and chapter heads also in Latin. There were two issues of this, a large paper issue and the common paper issue, of which this is one of the latter. Unlike most 18th-century books printed at Oxford, this is scarce. ESTC locates only seven U.S. holding libraries (one of which has deaccessioned its copy) and WorldCat locates three additional library copies (one of which has also been deaccessioned). Of the eight reported copies still actually in libraries four are in the Northeast, two in California, one at Duke, and one in Ohio. Provenance: The Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). Full modern brown morocco plain style, round spine, raised bands, gilt ruling above and below each band . A few sequential lower margins with a spill stain, a bit of foxing and instances of the lightest possible old waterstaining at rear. Two library stamps (one on title, one in a blank area of an interior leaf), as above. => A very clean, crisp copy.

Doppel-Blattgröße: 275 x 212 mm. - - -Miniature on double-leaf from an illuminated poetry manuscript, Moulana Nurruddin Abdorrahman Jami, North India, middle of the 18th century, on gold sprinkled paper. There are twelve lines to the page written in two columns of elegant Nasta’liq script in black ink, inter columnar rules decorated with floral motifs, corner pieces and outer margins decorated with floral sprays and motifs in colors and gold throughout, inner margins ruled in colors and gold. The double leaf measures: 275 x 212 mm. - - - The Persian mystic poet Moulana Noor-od-Din (Nuruddin) Abdorrahman Jami was born in Jam, a small town of Khorasan in 1414 CE. His poetic name is Jami, the word Jam means "wine goblet" in Persian and Nuruddin means "Light of Faith." He was born in a village near Jam, but a few years after his birth, his family migrated to the cultural city of Herat where he spent most of his life. He did travel extensively, most significantly to Samarqand, where he completed his studies. He was a famous Sufi, and a follower of the Naqshbandiyyah Sufi Order. At the end of his life (1492 CE) he was living in Herat. The Baharestan, or Land of Spring, is Jami's best-known work. It is a compendium of fables and short stories, in the tradition of the Golestan of Sa'di.

        Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux, ornée de 306 Estampes, qui les représentent parfaitement au Natural. et augmentée de notes & de remarques curieuses, par W.Derham.

      - La Haye, Pierre de Hondt, 1750. 3 volumes. 4to (293 x 235mm). With 306 fine engraved plates. Contemporary calf, richly gilt decorated spines in 6 compartments with red gilt lettered label, gilt edges (very slightly rubbed). An attractive uniformly bound copy of the rare French edition, the first English one was published in 1731-1738. Eleazer Albin is one of the obscure 18th century natural history illustrators, and apart from being a teacher of drawing and watercolour hardly anything is known of him. Besides the above work he published a splendid work on the 'Natural history of Insects' and an attractive work on spiders. The plates of the above offered work were drawn by the author."Albin. was one of the first artists to set each bird on a branch or other suitable perch, sometimes with the typical food of each species as well. The importance of his books . lies in the fact that some of his illustrations and descriptions are the first of those particular species to appear and thus serve as 'type specimens'. Albin did not work alone. He shared the task of drawing, engraving and colouring the plates with his daughter, Elisabeth (c. 1708-41). She has the distinction of being the first woman known to have worked as an illustrator of bird books, signing forty-one of the plates as having been her work alone. Her style, too, was distinctive, softer and more delicate than her father's, and she was evidently more painstaking, painting with lighter, shorter strokes of the brush" (J. Elphick, Birds, the art of ornithology pp. 32-33). There are 2 issues of the work one with the plates coloured and one with plain plates as the present copy.Provenance: Signature of Palisot-Beauvois on title.
