        Rossijskaja Grammatika (Russian, i.e. Russian Grammar).

      Sanktpeterburg (St. petersburg), 1755. 8vo. Very worn contemporary full calf. Leather lacking at capitals and corners, but binding is still tight. Internally a bit of soiling and damp staining (mostly quite vain), but overall in quite good condition and surprisingly clean. Many notes to pasted-down end-papers and old owner's inscriptions to title-page. 210 pp. Lacking the contents-leaf at the end. Some copies also seem to have a frontispiece, but this is not present in all copies (about half of the copies on OCLC do not collate it). It is not present here.. The extremely rare first edition of Lomonosov'e groundbreaking Russian Grammar, which completely reformed the Russian literary language, by combining Old Church Slavonic with the vernacular. Mikhail Vasilyevich Lomonosov (1711-1765) was the first Russian scientist-naturalist of universal importance, among whose discoveries were the atmosphere of Venus and the Law of Mass Conservation in chemical reactions. He was a great polymath and was also very influential as a poet and an artist. But he was probably most influential as a linguist, as it is he, who laid the foundation of modern Russian literary language (primarily with his "Russian Grammar", 1755).In 1748 he founded the first Russian chemical laboratory at the Academy of Sciences, and it was on his initiative that the Moscow University was founded in 1755.During the first half of the XVIIIth century in Russia, deep social and cultural changes had led to a chaotic linguistic situation, which somehow had to be solved. "An important number of scholars, writers, translators - in one word, "men of learning" - participated in, and contributed to the formation of what we now call modern Literary Russian. However, the name M.V. Lomonosov (1711-1765) stands apart, and in our opinion, deserves special attention. Lomonosov can be considered the first to have influenced the course of events by establishing some basic rules and criteria, and by giving some important grammatical and stylistic guidelines within the linguistic and literary field. Among his numerous achievements in various fields of human activities, his contribution in the sphere of language is certainly among the most important. If we accept the assumption that the "men who were at the cradle of modern Russian had to have two fundamental qualifications: 1) Complete familiarity with the Church Slavic language, with Church Slavic literature and culture in the broad sense, plus a knowledge of Greek... [and], 2) a similar familiarity with the West European languages, literature and culture...," then Lomonosov certainly fulfils these criteria, As G.H. Worth points out, in order to have a unified literary language, the most important prerequisites are: a standardized grammar, and a regulated vocabulary. Indeed, Lomonosov's most important contribution lies in the achievement of both these tasks. His "Rossijskaja Grammatika" was a first comprehensive grammar of the Russian language. It was published five times between its first appearance in 1755 and the end of the eighties... It remains an indisputable fact among scholars that Lomonosov's contribution in the field of grammar was of paramount importance." (Olgica Zingg: The Role of Lomonosov in the Formation of the Early Modern Russian Literary Language, 1997, pp. 4-6)

Exemplar com importância particular por motivo de, em cólofon, se encontrarem os despachos originais da edição: 'Pode Correr' e 'Está conforme com o original' e com 7 licenças e as respectivas assinaturas dos censores. O autor atribui o Terramoto de 1755 a causas não naturais, tal como foi corrente na época e contestado por humanistas como Voltaire. No entanto, o texto ao estilo prosa epopeica retrata bem o maremoto (tsunami): a sua aproximação e os locais principais da destruição: 'rebentando a água neste vistoso campo do Bonfim'; 'verde negro das ondas'; 'nas tuas ruas os barcos, os batéis, e os hiates atravessados com o ímpeto'; etc. Existe exemplar nos reservados da BNP.

Nevertheless, the text in epic prose depicts well the tsunami, its approach and the main places of destruction: 'rebentando a água neste vistoso campo do Bonfim' [the waves hitting this beautiful field of Bonfim]; 'verde negro das ondas' [the greenish black of the waves]; 'nas tuas ruas os barcos, os batéis, e os hiates atravessados com o ímpeto' [on your streets the boats, barges and the yachts dragged by the force of the waves]; etc. Location/localizacao: 4-6-D-59

        DOM JOSEPH POR GRAÇA DE DEOS REY DE PORTUGAL...FAÇO SABER AOS QUE ESTA LEY VIREM, QUE, MANDANDO EXAMINAR PELAS PESLOAS DO MEU CONCELHO, E POR OUTROS MINISTROS DOUTOS...[first few lines of text]

      [Lisbon, 1755. Folio. Dbd. Minor soiling. Near fine. This law is an interesting example of the type affecting South American indigenous populations and was very liberal for the time. This significant ruling was intended to favor the Companhia Geral do Grão-Pará e Maranhão, which had been established in 1755 by the Marquis of Pombal as a monopolistic trading company. It was given commercial control of the northern region of Brazil, employing imported slave labor rather than impressed indigenous labor. This law was one of the numerous laws passed in Portugal affecting the company's operations, the effect of which was to liberate the indigenous population of Grão Pará and Maranhão in present northern Brazil. The law was also calculated to vastly reduce the power and influence of the Jesuit missions and secularize the indigenous society by passing control of the region to the company. The Pombaline Reforms, including the establishment of this company, were a series of reforms with the goal of making Portugal an economically self-sufficient and commercially strong nation, by expanding Brazilian territory, streamlining the administration of colonial Brazil, and reforming fiscal and economic matters. The Jesuits were finally officially ejected from Brazil in 1759 as part of this movement. The text is divided into four sections. The preamble justifies the law, followed by a section which includes extracts from the law that freed the indigenous people; this is followed by the law which declared indigenous people could work for whomever they pleased and the law of 1611, which freed all indigenous people who were slaves. Not in Borba de Moraes or Sabin. GAUZ 1755/22.

        Theatrum botanicum: The theater of plantes. Or, an herball of a large extent ...

      London: Thomas Cotes Folio (35.3 cm, 13.9"). Add. engr. t.-p., [18], 1755 (i.e., 1745), [3] pp.; illus.. 1640 First edition: Over 3,000 species and their virtues described for the use of apothecaries and herbalists. Parkinson (1567–1650), who served officially as Royal Botanist to Charles I and unofficially as gardening mentor to his queen, Henrietta Maria, was also one of the founders of the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries — to which the allegorical frontispiece here may refer with the rhinoceros in its upper portion. The author of Paradisi in sole paradisus terrestris, Parkinson was much acclaimed by his contemporaries and by later botanists; Henrey cites Sir James Edward Smith's assessment that "this work [the Theatrum botanicum] and the herbal of Gerarde were the two main pillars of botany in England till the time of Ray." Gerard and Parkinson indeed competed in publication, with the printing of the present work having been delayed several years so as to avoid marketplace clash with Johnson's edition of Gerard's herbal. In the present work, Parkinson divided the plants by classes such as "Sweete smelling Plants," "Purging Plants," saxifrages, wound herbs, cooling herbs, "Strange and Outlandish Plants," etc. Most of the entries are illustrated with in-text woodcuts, interspersed with pages wholly occupied by four images. Among the Americana content here are descriptions of Virginia bluebells, Peruvian mechacan, potatoes, and an assortment of "Ginny peppers" (with dire warnings regarding their fiery hotness); also present are => 28 previously unrecorded British species, including the strawberry tree and the lady's slipper orchid. The index and tables are organized by Latin name, English name, and medicinal property. Provenance: Front pastedown with John Ruskin's Brantwood ex-libris, and with bookplate of American zoologist Charles Atwood Kofoid; additional engraved title-page with inked inscription "Ex bibliotheca Mathiae Lynen, Londini," dated 1641. A cheque drawn on Prescott Dinsdale Cave Tugwell & Co. by Joanna Ruskin Severn on Ruskin's behalf is tipped in. Contemporary speckled calf framed in blind double fillets, spine with gilt-stamped red leather title-label; much worn with front joint open, hinges (inside) reinforced with linen tape, old refurbishments including shellacking. Front pastedown and engraved title-page reinforced, the latter by attachments to endpaper and title-page; preface leaf partly separated; first and last leaves generally tattered and a few others with marginal paper flaws, one affecting a few letters and a small portion of one image. Occasional marginal tears, one just touching text; three small ink spots to one leaf, touching two images, else scattered spots only; one spread with ink blot (possibly printer's) obscuring portions of five words. Some corners bumped, and index leaves creased with three partly split along creases; final table leaf and errata leaf with old repairs costing a few words. Some pagination erratic and pp. 845–48 laid in, supplied from a smaller-margined copy; front free endpaper with pencilled annotations regarding this copy. A worn and pored-over yet respectable copy of this important 17th-century herbal, with => nice English and American provenance suggesting who did some of the poring.

        The Works of Jonathan Swift, D D (in 6 vols )

      London: Printed for C. Davis, C. Hitch and L. Hawes, C. Bathurst, R. And J. Dodsley, and W. Bowyer, 1755. First edition. Six quarto volumes (preceding the octavo version), collating: 8, 4, 43, xviii, 184, [ii], viii, 286; 231, 182 (but 202); iii, 191, [viii], 253; [viii], 318, ii, 237; [iv], 258, [iv], 232; [iv], 210, iii, 218. Complete with 26 numbered engravings (although number 6 bound out of order) as well as two unnumbered leaves of music plates, with a total of four plate impressions. Bound in contemporary diced calf with gilt borders, rebacked with black and brown morocco spine labels. A few paper repairs to marginal chips or tears, a few worm-tracks, and some toning to leaves, but on the whole a pleasing copy. With the armorial bookplates and signature (dated 1763) of John Wombwell. The complete works of one of literature's key satirists. Swift was in his late 30s and already had a career as a priest when his first satires, A Tale of a Tub and The Battle of the Books, were published. The former caused quite a sensation - many people thought that Swift was attacking religion itself, as opposed to its more negative aspects - but it would also make Swift a household name. Swift served for a time in politics before eventually taking up a Church position in Ireland. Though he considered himself like "a rat in a hole," he started to publish many of his most famous works, including "A Modest Proposal" and, of course, Gulliver's Travels. "...he is one of the writers I admire with the least reserve, and Gulliver's Travels, in particular, is a book which it seems impossible for me to grow tired of." (George Orwell).

        Deformity. An Essay

      London, R. and J. Dodsley, 1755 [third edition]/ 1754 - Octavo, [iv], 81, [3] pages. Early full calf worn at the extremities, with slight loss to the ends of the spine; spine lightly scorched in one small section and heavily rubbed, removing most of the gilt-decorated surface and the title-label; outer hinges broken but the covers are held firmly in place by the cords; a very good copy. William Hay (1695-1755), author and MP, wrote this 'autobiographical polemic addressing contemporary demonizing attitudes towards disfigurement [which] has been under-recognized as a key intervention in the history of disability' (Shuttleton: Smallpox and the Literary Imagination, 1660-1820). Bound together with [ASGILL, J.]: An Argument proving, that according to the Covenant of Eternal Life revealed in the Scripture, Man may be translated from hence into that Eternal Life, without passing through Death, altho the Humane Nature of Christ himself could not be translated until he had passed through Death ([London?], 1700; 106 pages), and [ASGILL, J.]: Mr Asgill's Defence upon his Expulsion from the House of Commons of Great Britain in 1707 [London, 1712; 88 pages). John Asgill (1659-1738): 'Eccentric writer, student at the Middle Temple, 1686, and called to the Bar 1692. In 1699 he published in an unlucky hour a pamphlet to prove that death was not obligatory upon Christians, which, much to his surprise, aroused the public wrath and led to his expulsion from the Irish and English House of Commons successively. Asgill thereafter fell on evil days, and passed the rest of his life between the Fleet and the King's Bench, where, strange to say, his zeal as a pamphleteer continued unabated' (Cousin: A Short Biographical Dictionary of English Literature [online]). Apart from a later name-stamp and two old signatures on the early leaves of the first Asgill item and some light tidemarks to the top corner of some leaves of the second Asgill item, the contents are in excellent condition.

        Nuova carta geografcia dello Stato Ecclesiastico.

      Calcografia Apostolica, Roma 1755 - Incisione in rame in tre fogli uniti, complessivi mm 1190x645, colore d'epoca ai confini. Importante carta graduata costruita grazie ad osservazioni e operazioni astronomico-geodetiche effettuate lungo il meridiano di Roma. Gli autori quindi, pur non avendo per scopo di "formare un'esatta carta topografica delle parti minute dello Stato Pontificio", poterono, grazie alle misurazioni effettuate "rettificare la geografia generale di esso". La carta fu terminata nel 1754 ma l'opera a stampa venne alla luce nel 1755, diligentemente incisa ed edita dalla Calcografia Apostolica. La carta non è ricchissima di particolari, ma determina idrografia principale, rete stradale e toponomastica.Ruggiero Boscovich, gesuita, nacque a Ragusa in Dalmazia nel 1711, fu chiamato ad insegnare al Collegio Romano a soli 26 anni.

        A NEW THEORY OF THE EARTH, From its Original to the Consummation of All Things. Wherein The Creation of the World in Six Days, the Universal Deluge, And the General Conflagration, As laid down in the Holy Scriptures, Are shewn to be perfectly agreeable to Reason and Philosophy. With a large Introduction concerning the genuine Nature, Style, and Extent of the Mosaick History of the Creation.

      ... J. Whiston and B. White ... 1755. . 6th Ed., To which is added, An Appendix, containing a new Theory of the Deluge.?' [iv] + 94pp. + [ii] + 478pp. + [ii] advert. leaf. 10 plates. Light browning, flyleaf partially detached, marbled e.ps., ex.-libris T.N. Metham, contemporary double gilt rule edged calf, some discolouring and wear with sm. repair to upper board, gilt ruling with gilt lettered title label to spine with sl. loss to head and tail. ESTC. T98873. ODNB ?'... Whiston's swift conversion to Newton's natural philosophy soon bore fruit in his first publication, [the above first published] (1696). He had shown this millenarian cosmogony in manuscript to Richard Bentley (1662?-1742), Christopher Wren (1632?-1723), and Newton himself, whom Whiston claims ?'well approved of it?' (Whiston, Memoirs, 43) and to whom the book was dedicated. Whiston's New Theory applied the physics of Newton and the geology of John Woodward (d. 1728) to demonstrate that the scriptural accounts of creation, the flood, and the final conflagration were ?'perfectly agreeable to Reason and Phylosophy?' (ibid.). He also sought to correct Thomas Burnet's Cartesian and deistically tinged Sacred Theory of the Earth (1681, 1684), which Whiston had defended for his BA degree. Whiston prefaced his earth theory with an essay on the style of Genesis and, like Newton, argued for a more literal hermeneutic. He drew from Newton's work on comets, and posited that the planetary system had solidified from comets attracted by the sun's gravitation. He used a catastrophist cometography to explain the flood, suggesting that the near approach of a divinely guided comet had initiated the diurnal rotation of the earth, transformed its orbit from circular to elliptical, and caused the deluge through the condensation of vapours from the comet's tail. He also identified stratified sedimentary rock and marine fossils found in continental areas as vestiges of the flood. The New Theory proved popular and after the initial run of 1500 copies went through five further editions (1708?-55), was translated into German (1713), epitomized in French (1718), and summarized by the comte de Buffon (1707?-1788) in 1749. The latter wrote ostensibly to refute the New Theory, but was nevertheless indebted to some of Whiston's ideas, as were other earth theorists. Praised by John Locke (1632?-1704) for its novel hypotheses, the New Theory was the first full-length popularization of Newtonianism and the most direct cause of Whiston's meteoric rise ...?'

        A View of the Palace of Chantilli, taken from the Principal Entrance / Vue du Chateau de Chantilli, prise du cote de la Principale Entree

      London: Sold by J. Boydell, Engraver at the Unicorn the corner of Queen Street in Cheapside, 1755. Hand-coloured engraving. Printed on laid paper. In excellent condition. Framed in a beautiful gold-leaf frame with a cream washline mount. Image size: 8 1/2 x 17 inches. A magnificent view of a stunning chateau in Chantilly, France by the celebrated landscape engraver Jacques Rigaud. Towards the middle of the eighteenth century a trend developed amongst English and European artists and printmakers, which sought to visually record their country's natural beauties. Sparked by a sense of national confidence and patriotism, artists and printmakers began to publish topographical prints of important sights and architectural attractions. In addition to being a visual record of the countryside they were meant to encourage public recognition of national treasures. These topographical prints were aimed at English and foreign tourists who desired a memento of their travels, or at those vicarious tourists who collected topographical prints instead of traveling. By joining this printing trend Jacques Rigaud made a name for himself in both France and England, and became one of the most successful French landscape engravers. He dedicated his artistic life to producing delicate engraving of national beauties across France. He executed a large series of works depicting France's stately homes and he worked in England, where he was commissioned to illustrate the celebrated gardens at Stowe. Rigaud's work influenced an entire generation of English and French printmakers; his delicate formal engravings established a classical format for topographical prints, which would be used until the onset of the nineteenth century. Le Blanc, Manuel de L'Amateur D'Estampes III, p. 337, no. 81-86 (Le Blanc mistakenly confuses Jacques Rigaud with his nephew Jean Baptiste Rigaud and attributes Jacques' work wrongly) Clayton, The English Print 1688-1802 p. 156-157.

[with:] 47 SEPARATE SESSION LAWS

      Boston, 1755. Folio. Contemporary calf, worn. Library stamps, ink ownership signatures, and slight chipping to titlepages, a few short repaired tears, scattered ink marginalia and notations in the text, some foxing, moderate overall toning. A good set. A vast collection of mid-18th-century laws of Massachusetts. This first work includes, as is often the case with this and earlier collected editions, the separately issued CHARTER (here bound first) and the full compilation of ACTS AND LAWS printed in 1742. Such compilations often are found with subsequent Massachusetts laws. Present here is one additional act from 1743, entitled, "An Act in Addition to and in Explanation of sundry Clauses of an Act intitled An Act to ascertain the Value of Money and of the Bills of publick Credit of this Province...." The copy of TEMPORARY ACTS AND LAWS here gathers together over 400 pages of a continuous run of Massachusetts session laws printed between 1742 and 1753, plus a few acts printed 1754-55 (almost continuously paginated, but lacking a few acts to make the run entirely complete). Together, this single volume of laws represents forty-seven separate entries in Evans, and constitutes a remarkable assemblage of early Massachusetts law. A rare source for colonial legal, political, and social history in Massachusetts.

        A View of Hamoze and Plymouth Dock from Mount Edgcumbe

      [London: Published J. Boydell, C. Bowles, R. Wilkinson and R. Sayer & Bennett, 1755. Hand-coloured copper engraving, heightened by touches of gum arabic. Printed on fine laid paper. Very good condition apart from some minor foxing in the margins. A panoramic view of the Hamoze estuary, which flows into the Plymouth Sound and joins the River Plym. This vibrantly coloured plate is from a series of five prints depicting the celebrated scenery of Mount Edgcumbe. Taken from the pinnacle of Mount Edgcumbe peering over the verdant canopy of trees, this beautiful print affords a clear view of the busy Plymouth dockyard. Established in 1690, the docks have an extensive naval history and, by the late 1700s, were one of the principal bases of the Royal Navy. Fleets as well as solitary naval vessels were stationed there, and the dockyard was also actively engaged in the manufacturing of new ships. Situated in Cornwall on the slopes of the Rame peninsula overlooking the River Tamar and the Plymouth Sound, Mount Edgcumbe was the family seat of the Earls of Mount Edgcumbe. Amidst the lush parklands and eighteenth-century gardens for which Edgcumbe is famous, sits Mount Edgcumbe House, an impressive Tudor-style residence erected by Roger Palmer in 1547-53 at the behest of Sir Richard Edgcumbe of Cotehele.

      London: Printed for John Bowles & Son, at the Black Horse in Cornhill, Robert Sayer at the Golden Buck in Fleet Street, & John Ryall at Hogarth's Head in Fleet Street, 1755. Engraving. Very good condition. A fine print of the picturesque buildings of Exeter College, most likely from a series of eight topographical views of Oxford engraved by William Woollett (1735-1785) after Donowell and originally published by his mentor John Tinney. Originally known as Stapeldon Hall after its founder, Walter de Stapeldon, Bishop of Exeter, Exeter College was founded in 1314. For several decades, its student body was comprised entirely of clergyman primarily from southwestern England; however, over time, it gradually became more diverse. Many of the buildings in the school's quadrangle were completed by the early eighteenth century, a period during which the caliber and number of students attending the college and the university as a whole flagged. By Victorian times, Exeter reestablished its reputation for academic excellence and underwent a significant increase in attendance. Not much is known about the architect and engraver John Donowell, who executed a number of topographical prints and drawings, primarily of London, including views of the Ironmongers' Hall, St. Giles in the Fields Church, Chiswick House, and Marlyebone Gardens. He exhibited his works during the 1760s at the Free Society of Artists and at the Incorporated Society of Artists and Royal Academy in the 1770s and 1780s. Cf.

        Carte Des Possessions Angloises & Francoises Du Continent De L'Amerique Spetentionale..

      Amsterdam: R. and J. Ottens, 1755. Engraved map, full period hand-colouring. First issue of the Ottens map of the French and English possessions, published on the eve of the French and Indian War. In 1755, Ottens issued a Dutch version of Jean Palairet's important map. The map showed the French and English territorial claims on the eve of the French and Indian War, with the colouring reflecting those claims. The English possessions are shown in yellow, with much of the region between the Appalachians and the Mississippi shown in pink reflecting territory occupied by English settlers or "peuples allies de l'Angleterre." The French claims are coloured in green, encompassing much of Canada and all of a vast Louisiana. French forts are circled in red and a red boundary line extends through Acadia to Lake Ontario. A second issue of the map was published following the Treaty of Paris which ended the war. In that issue, the date has been removed from the title and the colouring keys removed from either side of the scale of miles and the hand colouring on the map reflects the new boundaries following the war. A rare and colourful map of North America published on the eve of the war.

        Canada et Louisiane

      Paris, 1755. Engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. Large inset of the upper Mississippi, inset map of the lower Mississippi and the Gulf, small inset view of Niagara Falls. First state of this important map of the eastern portion of North America, published on the eve of the French and Indian War. "Covers the eastern part of North America from James Bay to the Gulf of Mexico. Includes inset extensions of Louisiana and the present southeastern United States. Shows provinces, numerous towns and cities, forts, mines, rivers, Indian villages and tribal territory, the Great Lakes, and relief. Also includes an inset view, 'Sault du Niagara.' Color is used to identify French, Spanish, and English territorial claims. Annotated in French to show 'les pretensions des Anglois' particularly with regard to boundaries and treaties concerning Nova Scotia" (Sellers and Van Ee). The present first state was published in 1755. With the outbreak of the American Revolution engendering increasing demand for American maps, Le Rouge reworked the plate (adding the boundaries of the new States) and re-titled it Theatre de la guerre en Amérique in 1777. He then re-worked it again and published it in 1787 with the title Carte d'une partie de l'Amérique Septentrionale pour servir a l'Histoire de la dernière guerre . The present first state, however, published on the eve of the French and Indian War is scarce.

        Manuscrit autographe. Copy of a letter from Wm. Plumsted Esq. to Wm. Parsons Esq. of Easton.

      1755 - 1 feuillet in-4 manuscrit (18,2 x 27,4 cm) de 33 lignes à l'encre brune sur le recto. Rare pièce autographe copiée de la main de Benjamin Franklin relative à la mission militaire qui lui fut confiée en Pennsylvanie. En 1755 s'ouvre sur le territoire nord-américain la Guerre de Sept ans - connue aussi sous l'appellation French and Indian war, où la Grande-Bretagne et ses colons s'opposèrent à la France et ses alliés Indiens. Après la défaite anglaise de Braddock du 9 juillet 1755, Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) membre éminent de l'assemblée générale de Pennsylvanie fut investi de plusieurs missions dont la défense des frontières pennsylvaniennes, la construction d'une ligne de forts, l'instauration d'une section d'artillerie ; il fut en outre nommé colonel et dirigea les opérations militaires à Gnadenhutten. Il écrit à ce propos au chapitre XI de ses Mémoires : « Le gouverneur me détermina à me charger de la frontière Nord-Ouest qui était infestée par l'ennemi, et à pourvoir à la défense des habitants, en levant des troupes et en construisant une ligne de forts. J'entrepris cette opération militaire, quoique je ne m'en crusse pas très capable. Le gouverneur me donna un brevet avec de pleins pouvoirs et un paquet de brevets en blanc pour les officiers que je pouvais choisir comme bon me semblait. Je trouvai peu de difficulté à lever des hommes, j'en eus bientôt cinq cent soixante sous mon commandement ». Ses fonctions l'amenèrent à constituer un dossier militaire dont cette copie de correspondance est un précieux témoin : elle fut adressée le 31 décembre 1755 par le maire de Philadelphie William Plumsted au fondateur de la ville d'Easton (Pennsylvanie) William Parsons pour la demande de renforts : M. Wm. Parsons, Sir, The Beaver Edw.d Cranston was sent down to me by Sam.l Depui in order to get him some assistance? William Plumsted, (1708-1765) maire de Philadelphie en 1750, 1754 et 1755, directeur de la Library Company et administrateur de la Philadelphia Academy et le major William Parsons (1701-1757) membre du club Junto, Surveyor General et membre de l'Assemblée de Pennsylvanie furent deux éminents correspondants de Benjamin Franklin lors de la guerre (on compte parmi les archives de Franklin quatre missives envoyées à Parsons et une réponse de ce dernier pour le seul mois de décembre 1755). Le caractère autographe de l'écriture de Benjamin Franklin est certifié dans un encart en bas de page daté et signé Philadelphia, May 25, 1853, Henry Reed : From my acquaintance and doctor Franklin's handwritten's and from several collateral proofs I have no doubt that the above copy of a letter was written by him. Professeur à l'Université de Pennsylvanie (créée par Benjamin Franklin en 1740), Henry Reed (1808-1854) enseigna la littérature anglaise, la philosophie et la rhétorique sur lesquelles il laissa un grand nombre d'études. Au verso est inscrit à l'encre du temps Copy of a letter to Wm. Parsons from Wm. Plumsted Esq. Dec. 31. 1755 n°43, suivi en regard, d'une autre main : Franklin from his own papers (signature illisible). ? Sur la correspondance Franklin, Plumsted, Parsons, cf.

        L'Isthme de l'Acadie, Baye du Beaubassin, en Anglois Shegnekto. Environs du Fort Beausejour

      Paris: Chez le Rouge, rue des Augustins, 1755. Copper-etched map, in excellent condition except for old folds. An important and very rare map that depicts the first battle of the French and Indian War in Canada The Chignecto isthmus was the location of a dividing line between the British region of Nova Scotia and the French territory. The French built Fort Beausejour on the Aulac Ridge early in 1750. The British in response constructed Fort Lawrence (called here Ft. St. Laurent) on the ridge immediately to the east across the tidal Missaquash River. This was generally accepted as the boundary between the territories, although France and England never agreed upon an official boundary. With the construction of Fort Gaspereau at Baye Verte on the shores of the Northumberland Strait, France gained effective control of travel on the Acadian isthmus. The population of the isthmus was still largely Acadian, though the English were actively trying to colonize. The Earl of Halifax had established the port town of Halifax with this in mind in 1749. The map thus establishes the context of the brief battle described below. Tensions deriving from King George's War (1745-48) had never been resolved in the region and both sides were actively trying to undermine the other. The British forces described in the account below consisted of two New England volunteer battalions and one regular British detachment. William Shirley, Governor of Massachusetts, seems to have been one of the primary provocateurs in the confrontation. "The Battle of Fort Beauséjour marked the opening of a British offensive in the French and Indian War (the North American theater of the Seven Years' War). Beginning June 3, 1755, a British army under Lieutenant-Colonel Robert Monckton staged out of nearby Fort Lawrence, besieged the small French garrison at Fort Beauséjour with the goal of opening the Isthmus of Chignecto to British control. After two weeks of siege, Louis Du Pont Duchambon de Vergor, the fort's commander, capitulated on June 16. In June 1755, Lieutenant-Colonel Monckton, commanding a fleet of 31 transports and three Royal Navy warships carrying 270 British regular troops (from the 43rd Regiment of Foot) and 2,000 New England militia, entered Cumberland Basin. The ships dropped anchor at the mouth of the Missaguash River and the British forces were able to land unopposed. Using the nearby British outpost of Fort Lawrence (about three kilometers (2 miles) to the east) as a staging area, Monckton then proceeded to the top of Aulac Ridge. The British offensive began on June 3, with Monckton carefully and methodically advancing on the French fortification from the north. When his forces were close enough on June 13, Monckton began a bombardment with 13 inch mortars. Although the commander of the fort, the Marquis Louis Du Pont Duchambon de Vergor, defied the British for two weeks, there was little the French could realistically do against the numerically superior British forces. On June 16, British mortar fire breached the walls of the fortification and badly mauled the French garrison. De Vergor had little choice but to surrender. The next day, the French abandoned nearby Fort Gaspareaux, severing communications between Acadia and ÃŽle Royale (Cape Breton Island), and leaving the British forces in control of the frontier between Nova Scotia and Acadia." (Wikipedia). The aftermath of the relatively minor siege and battle was enormous. Under the pretext of requiring unconditional allegiance to George II, the New England militia forcibly removed 14,000 Acadians from Acadia, about 75% of the French speaking population. This, known as the Great Expulsion, was perhaps the first instance in modern history of an ethnic removal. Jefferys published a version of this map, also in 1755, Shegnecto Bay. A large and particular Plan of Shegnecto Bay .... and the circumjacent country; with the forts and settlements of the French, till dispossessed by the English in June 1755 : Drawn on the spot by an officer, the map dated August . (Phillips p.233). It is not clear which map came first. The LeRouge map is clearly the French version, with French names given priority. Both maps were issued soon after the results of the battle were known. Very few examples of the map have been found. One is in the Bibliotheque et Archives Canada. And an example is listed in an 1889 map catalogue: Le bibliophile americain with the comment: "Très jolie carte gravée à l'eau forte." Catalogue of New-York State Library: 1856. Maps, Manuscripts, Engravings, Coins, &c. (Albany: 1857). p.78; Anderson, The Crucible of War p. 112-114; Chris M. Hand The Siege of Fort Beausejour 1755 (Fredericton: 2004).
