[with:] A SECOND LETTER ON FOREIGN SUBSIDIES, SUBSIDIARY ARMIES, AND THEIR CONSEQUENCES TO THIS NATION.... [with:] A THIRD LETTER TO THE PEOPLE OF ENGLAND ON THE PRESENT SITUATION AND CONDUCT OF NATIONAL AFFAIRS.... [with:] A FOURTH LETTER TO THE PEOPLE OF ENGLAND. ON THE CONDUCT OF M---- RS IN ALLIANCES, FLEETS, AND ARMIES, SINCE THE FIRST DIFFERENCES ON THE OHIO, TO THE TAKING OF MINORCA BY THE FRENCH. [with:] A FIFTH LETTER TO THE PEOPLE OF ENGLAND, ON THE SUBVERSION OF THE CONSTITUTION.... [with:] A SIXTH LETTER TO THE PEOPLE OF ENGLAND, ON THE PROGRESS OF NATIONAL RUIN...

      London, 1757. [2],58; [2],56; [1],[5-]64; [2],111; [2],99,[1]; [3],121pp. Six volumes. Dbd. Light staining to outer leaves of two volumes, some light tanning throughout. Three volumes lacking half-titles, one lacking errata slip. Very good. In a cloth clamshell box. An excellent set of Shebbeare's six letters on sundry political and economic issues, including the first and the fourth, which are of special American interest. The proposed seventh letter was seized in the press, and the only known fragment is at the John Carter Brown Library. Four letters are true first editions, and one, though a stated second edition, is a first edition, second issue. This series of letters was written by Shebbeare relatively early in his career as a political writer. "As the international crisis of 1755-6 developed into war between Britain and France, Shebbeare's political commitment increased, inspiring the composition of a series of pamphlets condemning the Newcastle ministry's management of the conflict, beginning with A LETTER TO THE PEOPLE OF ENGLAND, published in the autumn of 1755. Shebbeare accused the ministry of sacrificing British maritime and colonial interests in North America by slavishly pandering to the Hanoverian partialities of George II....Admiral John Byng's failure to save the Mediterranean island of Minorca from capture by the French in July 1756 precipitated an intense political controversy over the responsibility for the defeat. Shebbeare's FOURTH LETTER, published in August, formulated a scathing review of the Newcastle administration's European diplomacy and conduct of the war in North America, and blamed the loss of Minorca upon the neglect and incompetence of the ministers" - DNB. The second, third, and fifth letters focus on the use of money to employ foreign mercenaries, the general misuse of public funds, and the government's perceived disregard for the constitution, respectively. The sixth, most incendiary letter, attacked the House of Hanover for its alliance with Prussia in 1757, and compared it to the apocalyptic pale horse of Revelation. This last letter led to Shebbeare's conviction on charges of seditious libel, and earned him a sentence of three years in prison and an appearance in the Charing Cross pillory. Upon his arrest, Shebbeare's seventh letter was suppressed while in production. Letters one, two, four, and six in this set are first editions, letter five a first edition reissue, and letter three a third edition. An important group of English polemical pamphlets with significant material on colonial America, and quite difficult to obtain as a set, particularly in the first editions. HOWES S369, S368.

        Élémens de Chymie, suivant les principes de Becker et de Stahl, traduits du latin sur le IIème édition de M. Juncker, avec des notes.

      Paris: Siméon-Prosper Hardy, 1757. Première édition française, 6 volumes in-12. xxiv, 526p., 2 planches gravées dépliantes; viii, 623p.; viii, 599p.; viii, 388p.; viii, 412p.; vii, 283p., [4p. approbation, privilège]; Reliure d'époque en basane mouchetée, dos à nerfs orné, pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge. Quelques coins usés, accidents à plusieurs coiffes et courtes fentes aux extrémités de certains mors, autrement bon exemplaire, frais intérieurement. Rare et important traité du chimiste allemand Johann Juncker, dont l'édition originale fut publiée en latin de 1730 à 1734. Elle couvre d'une manière à peu près exhaustive les divers domaines de la chimie. Le premier volume traite de la composition et de la décomposition des corps, de l'eau, des terres et des pierres, avec une théorie de leur origine. Le second aborde les différents types d' "opérations": fusion, dissolution, amalgame, cristallisation, distillation, etc. Le troisième est consacré aux métaux, le quatrième à la métallurgie et aux substances inflammables, le cinquième aux sels et aux acides, le dernier aux fermentations et aux substances alimentaires (vin, vinaigre, bière, esprit de vin, sucre, miel). Des tables par volume et une excellente table générale sous forme d'index alphabétique permettent de retrouver facilement les sujets traités. Cette traduction faite par Jean-François Demachy (1728-1803), pharmacien hospitalier, fournit une perspective claire de l'état de la chimie "ancienne" du XVIIIème siècle, avant la révolution des nouvelles idées incarnées par Lavoisier et sa réforme chimique, dont Demachy fut l'un des plus notables opposants. DSB VII, 188.

Small quarto, 19th-century three-quarter brown polished calf rebacked, tan morocco spine label, marbled boards. Continuation: tall octavo, original half buff paper over pale blue boards, paper spine label, uncut, in custom clamshell box. Housed together in custom cloth slipcase. $6000.First edition of "the first and classic history of New York" (Streeter), with early 19th-century re-engraved frontispiece view of Oswego on Lake Ontario, together with Smith's Continuation, published posthumously by the New York Historical Society.Loyalist William Smith, Justice of the province of New York, left the country after the Revolution to accept a post as Chief Justice of Lower Canada. While he had finished his history of New York nearly up to the present time, he was persuaded "by forcible reasons" to limit the first edition of his history to the year 1732. The unpublished remainder appeared for the first time in 1826, as Volume IV of the Collections of the New-York Historical Society. Smith based his landmark work, a cornerstone of colonial history, "chiefly on the Provincial Laws, the Minutes of the Council, the Journals of the General Assembly and other government records" (Sabin 84566). In this copy, the frontispiece view of Oswego is a later version, re-engraved in Albany by D. Vaughan and printed by Gavit & Duthie. Bookbinder's ticket of W.S. Barber of Brooklyn. Howes S703. Streeter 871. Faint stamp of the Long Island Historical Society on the title page.Text lightly toned, a few short tears along folds of frontispiece; scattered foxing to Continuation, outer paper hinges split, cords holding firm.

        Epistle to the National Meeting of Friends in Dublin

      1757 - (FRANKLIN, Benjamin) PIKE, Joseph. An Epistle to the National Meeting of Friends, in Dublin. Concerning good Order and Discipline in the Church. Philadelphia: Re-printed, and Sold by B. Franklin, and D. Hall, 1757. Small octavo (4-1/2 by 6-3/4 inches), early 20th-century full red crushed morocco rebacked with original spine laid down, top edge gilt. $4500.First American edition of Joseph Pike's influential Quaker work, a rare imprint of the firm of Franklin and Hall, issued near the same time Franklin became a representative for the Pennsylvania Assembly and the colonies of Massachusetts, Georgia and New Jersey in Britain, handsomely bound in full morocco.During Franklin's partnership of several decades with David Hall, their firm focused "on those aspects of the printing business which were best established and likely to be most profitable""the Pennsylvania Gazette, the public printing for the Assemblies of Pennsylvania and the Lower Counties, the Poor Richard and pocket almanacs" (Miller, xxx). By 1757, the year this work was published, Franklin had developed a close relationship with the Overseers of the Press on behalf of the Society of Friends (Minutes of the Meeting for Sufferings, August 29, 1757, 93). Franklin maintained a "lifelong friendship with Quaker politicians, merchants and scientists". He admired Quakerism because of its affirmation of simplicity, frugality, anti-slavery and humanitarianism" (Waldstreicher: 7.7). Pike, author of this Epistle, was a prominent Quaker merchant of Cork whose "business affairs frequently took him to England, Holland and Flanders. On one of these journeys he accompanied William Penn to Holland and attended the yearly meeting at Amsterdam" (Myers, 151). First issued in Dublin in 1726, his Epistle addresses "good order and discipline in the Church." Its publication in both Ireland and America signals its importance as a defense of the faith. As issued with "Joseph" spelled "Josph" on title page. Evans 8008. Hildeburn 1552. Miller 655 (issued behind a section title with Barclay's Anarchy of Ranters). Bookplate of Reverend Anson Phelps Stokes, who was the son of prominent New York financier Anson Phelps Stokes and a descendant of two early American families, the Phelps and Stokes, both "early settlers in the Massachusetts colony". the Reverend was secretary of Yale University, and pastor of New Haven's most fashionable church, Saint Paul's Episcopal" (Birmingham, The Rest of Us, 58).Text generally fresh with light scattered foxing, expert restoration to morocco.
