        De sectionibus conicus. Tractatus geometricus. In quo, ex Natura ipsius coni, Sectionum Affestiones facillime deducuntur. Methodo Nova

De Sectionibus Conicis was soon adopted by universities throughout Britain, receiving a translation into English in 1773. ESTC T110328.. First edition. Quarto.

Il les combat ou il les approuve, toujours avec la même bonne foi, la même impartialité, la même recherche de l'intérêt général et pratique. Il écrit un livre d'histoire en même temps qu'une critique des ?uvres financières de ces temps ; c'est avec l'appui de nombreux documents de ces diverses époques qu'il dresse des états comparatifs » (G. Fleury, François Véron de Fortbonnais). Précurseur des physiocrates, Forbonnais affirme que les progrès de l'agriculture et de l'industrie sont la base du perfectionnement de la société.

      N.p., n.pr., dated at Belem, 16 June 1758. - Caption title. 15 pp. Folio (29.3 x 20.6 cm.), disbound, text block edges rouged. Overall in very good condition. Old ink foliation ("285-96") in upper outer corner of recto of each leaf. Late eighteenth-century manuscript ink annotation of twelve lines in lower outer corner of p. 13, referring to a an article of a law dated 2 March 1786. ---- FIRST EDITION, very rare, of the future Marquês de Pombal?s instructions for the rebuilding of Lisbon following the earthquake, tsunami, and fires of November 1755. Pombal charged military engineers General Manuel de Maia, Colonel Carlos Mardel, and Captain Eugénio dos Santos with drawing up plans for the new city center that was to become the very model of Enlightenment town planning, with wide streets arranged on a grid plan to serve both beauty and public health. The area in question, from the Rossio to the Praça do Commercio, remains the core of central Lisbon, and its "Pombaline architecture" is largely unchanged.On June 12, 1758, the future Marquês de Pombal announced that building would be allowed in the area in accordance with the specifications set forth in this @Plano. It sets out the direction and width of the north-south streets and the cross-streets and the placement of public plazas. The height of buildings and their windows and doors are decreed, as are the construction of sewers.The new street grid required that many homes could not be rebuilt on their original sites and that some homes which had survived the quake be destroyed. Pages 6-9 set out compensation: usually a one-for-one parcel of land near where their residences were before. The destruction occurred mostly in the wealthier quarters, and Pombal has no qualms about distinguishing between the high-class neighborhoods and areas such as the "torpe Rua, que antes se chamava Confeitaria" or "Becos estreitos, sordidos, e escuros," and that homes in these lower-class areas will be assigned new lots that are also in less prominent places. There are hints of objections to this massive overhaul of Lisbon?s center. In his decree of June 12, 1758, confirming Pombal's plan, D. José I states that this plan for the beautification of Lisbon will be implemented "não obstantes quaesquer Leys, Regimentos, Disposiçoens, Resoluçoens, ou Ordens em contratrio; e sem embargo da Constituição Zenoniana, e Opinioens de Doutores ." (pp. 13-14).His actions following the devastating 1755 Lisbon earthquake quickly led to the virtual dictatorship of Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo, later Conde de Oeiras and still later Marquês de Pombal. While D. José I, the royal family, and most of the court were paralyzed with fear following destruction of a third of the Portuguese capital and the death of some 15,000 residents, Pombal took the lead in the relief efforts and rebuilding. He remained firmly in control of Portugal?s domestic and foreign policy until D. José?s death in 1777.---- Not in Innocêncio.

        De l'esprit

      A Paris chez Durand, Libraire, rue du Foin 1758. Imprimerie de Moreau. In - 4 relié plein veau fauve marbré de l'époque, dos à cinq nerfs très orné, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge, tranches rouges, gardes de papier marbré. Page de titre + XXII + 643 pages + approbation à la date du 27 mars 1758 et privilège au 12 mai 1758. Relié en suivant "CENSURE DE LA FACULTE DE THEOLOGIE DE PARIS CONTRE LE LIVRE QUI A POUR TITRE, DE L'ESPRIT". A Paris chez Jean Baptiste Garnier 1759, 79 pages. Reliure armoriée, non identifiée dont nous faisons un essai de lecture comme suit : Ecartelé au 1 et au 4 à trois fasces ondées, 3 merlettes en chef, au 2 et au 3 à la croix de Toulouse vidée, glands ou pommes de pin entre les branches. Brochant sur le tout un oiseau (loriot) sur un mont de six coupeaux (Famille AURIOL ? dont de nombreuses branches), couronne de Marquis, deux lévriers en supports. La reliure présente un manque de cuir à la coiffe et en queue, le coin inférieur du premier plat est très émoussé, les autres le sont également mais beaucoup moins, le corps de l'ouvrage est en très bon état, papier bien blanc à grandes marges. Une note manuscrite du temps en page de titre et une seule autre en marge plus loin dans le texte. Nous référant à la bibliographie de David Smith sur les écrits d'Helvétius, nous pouvons dire que cet exemplaire est de type E.IB (p.121 et suivantes, Key for identifying editions, le titre comporte bien le premier "p" de approbation juste en dessous du M de la date, la collation est parfaitement identique, les vignettes, dont celle du titre signée Papillon et ornements concordent parfaitement. Nous retrouvons bien les erreurs d'imprimerie relevées par D. Smith et les cahiers marqués d'une étoile (*). Pour mémoire rappelons que l'ouvrage fût censuré par arrest du Conseil du Roi à la date du 10 août 1758, malgré l'approbation et le privilège antérieurs délivrés, semble t'il un peu à la hâte, puis condamné au feu. Malgré les défauts de reliure signalés, bon exemplaire du second tirage augmenté de la censure rédigée en français et en latin.

Both men were Jesuits, but in different centuries and on different continents: Ripalda was born in Spain in 1535 and died in 1618, never having left Europe; Paredes was born in Mexico in 1703 and died there the year this book was published, hailed as one of the most important Nahuatl scholars of the period. Beristain describes Paredes as being "outstanding in the Mexican language." His volume was intended for use by missionaries, by parish priests, and by Indians: Indeed, there is a => prologue intended to persuade Indians in particular to read and learn this catechism. The volume is illustrated with woodcut arms on the verso of the second title-page and bears many woodcut initials and tailpieces throughout => This copy retains Ortuño's engraved frontispiece (often missing) of St. Francis. Binding: A very interesting contemporary Mexican sprinkled calf binding, probably by a "provincial" binder. Covers with a single gilt-roll border having a modest corner device in each corner, that tool reused to form a four-part center design on each cover; same gilt-roll used on spine to accent the slightly raised bands and form spine compartments, one of these compartments with a spine-label and one having the covers' corner device gilt-tooled at its center. Board edges also with a gilt-roll design; all edges green. Highly unusual endpapers of a pattern in blue and red resembling images of strings in string theory: This is the first time we have ever seen this pattern. Binding as above, in good condition; light offsetting from it to early and late leaves. A few small areas of discoloration where candle wax spilled on a page, and a bit of other light toning; p. 135 with "Per Omnia Secula Seculorum" neatly written in bottom margin. Very good.

        The culture of silk: or, an essay on its rational practice and improvement In four parts For the use of the American colonies

      London: Pr. for A. Millar 8vo. Frontis., xv, [1 (blank)], 299, [1] pp., plt.. 1758 Interest in the production of silk in the New World began with the Spaniards in the 16th century, though despite the best efforts of many in Mexico, the enterprise came to naught. Either undaunted by or unaware of the failure of these earlier efforts, the English in the 18th century attempted the introduction of sericulture into their regions of North America. This early English treatise on the possibilities of silk culture in British North America was aimed at planters and owners of land on which the essential mulberry trees could be planted, and entrepeneurs looking to enter a new business at ground level. In the period 1750 through 1820 there was considerable interest in the development of this potentially lucrative enterprise. The work in hand is divided into four parts: "I. On the raising and planting of mulberry trees. II. On hatching and rearing the silkworms. III. On obtaining their silk, and breed. IV. On reeling their silk-pods." The two plates (one being the frontispiece) show various machinery and tools for, and stages of, the production of silk. The author, a "reverend," flourished 1734?-60. Recent quarter calf, antique style. Round spine with raised bands accented with gilt ruling. Gilt center devices in spine compartments. Green morocco title-label. Marbled paper sides. Light foxing. A very good copy.

        Catecismo Mexicano . literalmente [traducido] del Castellano, en el puro y proprio Idioma Mexicano. y le anadio la Doctrina pequena con otras cosas. Imprenta de la Bibliotheca Mexicana

      Imprenta de la Bibliotheca Mexicana, Mexico City 1758 - Small 8vo, pp [ii], [xxx], 170, [i]. This copy has both the frontispiece of San Francisco Xavier by Otuno as the frontispiece, which is often missing, and the arms of the archbishop of Mexico. There are two title pages, one in Spanish, the other in Nahuatl. Not the first edition of Fr. Ripalda's Catecism, but the first of that work translated into Nahuatl or Aztec or the Mexican language, by Fr. Paredes. The work is entirely in Nahuatl, except for Latin parts of the mass and the Spanish title-page. This imprint of the Bibliotheca Mexicana is justly esteemed in the annals of Mexican printing; the first Mexican bibliographer Eguiara y Eguren was its director and the quality of the printing was maintained at a very high level (Medina Imprenta de Mexico, I:clxxiv), as is evidenced in this volume. There is a profusion of cul-de-lampes and elegant initial letters throughout. Fr. Paredes (1703 - 66?), a Jesuit, was extremely proficient in the Mexican or Nahuatl language, as Beristain de Souza tells us, and zealous in his labors among the native Mexicans at the Colegio de San Gregorio, which had been established by the Jesuits for the education specifically of the indigenous people.Beristain also notes that it was the best of the numerous catecisms in that language. It is based on the work of Fr. Ripalda, an Italian Jesuit, but a small "Doctrina" with other material was added by Paredes, all intended for the use of ministers working among this population, but in the introduction he also urges "los indios" to read it as well. Fr. Paredes is best known for his important "Prontuario manual mexicana" (1759). which was a handbook for the instruction of priest missionaries how to teach the Indians in their native language of Nahuatl; in that book, he urges the Native Americans to read and learn from this catecism. The book is in very nice condition: the Spanish title page has been professionally, and quite expertly, restored; ink stamp on verso of plate ("13213 Jun 6 1906'). Otherwise a very nice, clean copy with good margins. The binding is rather spectacular -- full vellum over boards with gilt borders, title in sepia ink on spine, rawhide stitching in the gutters, with the binder's name on front free endpaper: Brugalla 1970. It is preserved in a fleece-lined slipcase of patterned paper over boards. Very nice copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The British Herbal: an history of plants and trees, natives of Britain, cultivated for use, or, raised for beauty

      London: T. Osborne, J. Shipton, J. Hodges, J. Newbery, B. Collins, S. Crowder and H. Woodgate, 1758. Royal folio. (18 1/8 x 11 inches). Letterepress title printed in red and black with engraved hand-coloured vignette by C. Grignion after S. Wale, hand-coloured engraved coat-of-arms of the Duke of Northumberland heading the dedication. Hand-coloured engraved frontispiece by H. Roberts after Wale, 75 engraved plates (71 hand-coloured plates, printed in brown and coloured by hand; 4 plates [nos. 29, 61, 68 & 74] uncoloured and supplied from a smaller copy), by R. Benning, Boyce, Roberts and Smith and others after J. Burgess. (Text pp.195-200, 427-430 and 473-6 also supplied from a smaller copy). Contemporary sprinkled calf gilt, covers with decorative border of a dog-tooth roll, a fillet, and two decorative rolls, the inner incorporating various insects, spine in seven compartments with raised bands, brown morocco label in the second, the others with repeat decoration in gilt made up from various small tools, comb-marbled endpapers, red-stained edges Provenance: W. Wymondesold (early signature on front blank) Large paper copy with plates printed in brown and hand-coloured at a contemporary date: the whole illustrates approximately 1500 plants. This deluxe issue of The British Herbal was originally issued in weekly numbers "on Royal paper, with the cuts coloured" and published at 3s. 6d. per part according to advertisements in The Public Advertiser of 1756-7. "The genera and species are clearly described in The British herbal , and the work is of importance as being one of the first publications to appear after [Linnaeus'] Species plantarum of 1753, the year internationally accepted as the starting-point for modern botanical nomenclature. A number of generic names used by pre-Linnaean authors, but suppressed by Linnaeus, retain here their first pre-Linnean significance, and were thus restored to botanical nomenclature... The British herbal is also of interest for Hill's criticism of Linnaeus. Although Hill admired and often praised the latter, he did not hesitate to express his opinions when they differed from those of Linnaeus. Many examples of Hill's censures are to be found in The British herbal , and Druce has pointed out that in this work Hill 'criticizes Linnaeus quite fairly and strongly but not with acridity, and shows again and again where that illustrious botanist went wrong'" (Henrey). Henrey writes of Sir John Hill that "Not only was...[he] industrious and energetic, but his writings show him to have been a man of real ability and genius" (vol. II, p. 91). Unfortunately, he was also conceited, eccentric and fond of self-advertisement: traits not conducive to winning friends, and various false starts in his search for wealth and recognition led him to pursue a number of careers: apothecary, practical botanist, actor, gardener (he apparently assisted in the laying out of a botanic garden in Kew, and was gardener at Kensington Palace) and, most productively of all, miscellaneous writer (the list of his works in the Dictionary of National Biography runs to five and a half columns). Copies of this deluxe issue are quite scarce. It is unclear why four plates and seven text leaves are missing from this copy, but seem never to have been bound in; an early owner has supplied them from the regular edition. Blunt and Stearn The Art of Botanical Illustration , pp. 170-171; Bradley III.81; Dunthorne 128; Great Flower Books (1990) p. 100; Henrey II, pp. 92-94 and III, no. 799; Hunt 557; Nissen BBI 881; Pritzel 4063; Stafleu & Cowan 2769.

        A General Map of the Middle British Colonies in America ... Corrected and Improved with the Addition of the Line of Forts on the Back Settlemetns ..

      London: Sold by R. Sayer ... & T. Jefferys .., 1758. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring. Inset map of the Ohio River, tables of distance, numerous printed notes relating to Indian tribes and geography. One of the most important maps of the British colonies done prior to Independence. Lewis Evans' map, titled "A General Map of the Middle British Colonies in America," shows the east coast of North America from Montreal and New England to the northern border of North Carolina, and also includes the Ohio valley in the west. The Evans map appeared in 1755, the same year as John Mitchell's famous map, with Evans drawing from his own original surveys, as well as Fry and Jefferson's 1753 map of Virginia. Evans's map acknowledges French claims to all lands northwest of St. Lawrence Fort, resulting in criticism from New York. Despite the controversy, Evans's work was influential (there were eighteen editions and piracies issued between 1755 and 1814), and was famously used by General Braddock during the French and Indian War. "By 1758 Kitchin's plate seems to have passed into the possession of Thomas Jefferys, the famous map publisher of Charing Cross, for in that year we find the map re-issued with exactly the same title as Kitchin's but with an alteration in the imprint ... Very little difference is to be observed between the issues of 1756 and 1758, but a number of new Forts on the back settlements are added in the latter ... Fort du Quesne, which was marked simply F. du Quesne' in the 1756 plate, is now lettered 'Ft. du Quesne Destroy'd 1758 now called Pittsburg'" (Stevens). This correction to this issue makes this map the earliest map to name Pittsburgh. A rare issue of a desirable map of colonial America.

        Atlas Universel

      Paris: chez les auteurs & Boudet, 1758. Folio. (20 3/4 x 16 1/2 inches). Letterpress 'avertissement' leaf, 33pp. text, 1p. 'table des articles', 5pp. subscribers, 1p. with details of costs and additional maps. Engraved title, 108 double-page engraved maps, all hand-coloured in outline and mounted on guards, each map stencilled on the verso twice with an identifying title. Bound to style in 19th-century calf, the covers elaborately panelled in blind, the large central panel with a diamond-shaped lattice in blind, spine in eight compartments, titled in blind in the second, the others with repeat decoration in blind, marbled endpapers A fine copy of the Robert de Vaugondy's great atlas Gilles and Didier Robert de Vaugondy were descendents of Nicolas Sanson, and their atlas is clearly a continuation of Sanson's great work, Cartes Generales de Toutes les Parties de Monde published in 1654 and later enhanced and enlarged by Hubert Jaillot. Of the 108 maps, 12 are of the ancient world and 96 reflect modern geography. The Robert de Vaugondys, following Sanson's example, include maps of the postal routes, roads and canal systems of the European countries but herein they are significantly more accurate. Special attention has been paid to the Far East and to North America where the French explorers made such important strides during the eighteenth century. The maps of the East Indies, China, Japan; the maps of Africa and Egypt; and the maps of North America, Canada, Virginia & Maryland, Colonies Angloises are especially interesting in this atlas because they include information gathered from the latest explorations of the area. In particular, California and Australia are represented in truer form. The finish date of 1758 is given on the basis of the date on the map numbered 24 'Carte du royaume de France'.

        Carte des Possessions Angloises & Françoises du Continent de L'Amérique Septentrionale

      London: Nourse, Vaillant, Millar, Rocque & Sayer, 1758. Copper-engraved map by Thomas Kitchin, with full original colour, with contemporary manuscript additions, lower centerfold strengthened outside of image area, in very good condition. A great French and Indian War map from Palairet's 'Atlas méthodique.' This is Palairet's most important map, a fascinating and artistically virtuous depiction of the political situation as it existed at the beginning of the French and Indian War (1756-63). The map colourfully depicts the British and French claims in North America and the unaligned territories in between. The map also includes the westward heading, parallel lines of each British colonies' right of expansion, as granted by one or another Stuart King, extending to the Pacific; all of which, of course, run through lands claimed by France , and at that time inhabited by Native tribes. On a more tactical level, the map locates French forts from Nova Scotia to the Mississippi and on the Missouri (Fourt Orleans). In other words, it is a map that sets the scene for the war in progress. Despite the French title, Palairet lived in Great Britain and worked for the Royal Family. The map is somewhat partial to Britain, which is shown to possess all of the eastern seaboard north of Spanish Florida up to the south bank of the St. Lawrence River - which in reality lay at the heart of New France. Southern Ontario and the region between the Appalachians and the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers is shown as disputed territory between Britain and France. These regions France considered her own. The map allows French Louisiana, comprising the land west of the Illinois and Mississippi, and the area from the Mississippi Delta to Mobile. As noted below the Explication , this issue of the map features a hand-drawn line in red ink from Bay Vert in Nova Scotia to Lake Ontario, a new 'line of control' that reflects French advances after victories in the first two years of the war. Cutting across Nova Scotia, Maine and New Hampshire, it turns south to include Lake George and Lake Champlain and most of the land ruled by the Iroquois Confederacy. All the French forts in North America have been circled as well in red ink. These revisions, made in the midst of war by one of the publishers, make this state of the map particularly intriguing. This map is based on John Mitchell's immensely influential A Map of the British Colonies in North America , published in 1755. The present map was engraved by Thomas Kitchin, one of London's most esteemed engravers and cartographers. It is adorned by an attractive rococo cartouche. The designation of states of this map will require future bibliographical clarification. The present map is an unrecorded state: dated 1755 and including "Sayer" as one of the publishers, but not including "par Palairet" (as in later states), nevertheless, reflecting events that took place in 1756 and 1757 (victories at Lake Ontario and the taking of Fort William Henry on Lake George). Jean Palairet was born in Montauban, France, but emigrated to England where he became a French tutor to the children of George II. He later wrote several informative books on arithmetic, language, arts and sciences, and geography. The present map is from the second edition of Palairet's greatest work, the Atlas méthodique , a magnificent cartographical demonstration, in which landmasses are shown in various stages of political definition.

Le premier volume comprend un exposé des faits ; il décrit l'évolution de l'embryon du poussin dans l'œuf, jour après jour. "Haller devised a numerical method to demonstrate the rate of growth of the foetus, showing that the rate of growth is relatively rapid in the earlier stages but that the tempo gradually decreases. He calculated the rate of growth of the chick and of the human embryo" (Garrison & Morton). Le second volume, illustré d'une planche sur cuivre, contient la description des expériences "les plus utiles" recueillies par l'auteur, suivies de Réflexions sur le développement et d'un Mémoire sur plusieurs phénomènes de la respiration où sont décrites 116 expériences réalisées sur animaux.

        Recreaciones geographicas, y nuevo compendio de Geographia moderna: Contiene la descripcion natural, politica, y artificiosa del Globo Terraqueo; sesenta y quatro problemas, y ochenta theoremas, para la practica de los mapas, y globos geographicos.

      - Extremely rare 18th Century Spanish treatise on geography and the use of maps and globe, published in Salamanca. This exceedingly rare and fascinating work, printed in Salamanca during the era of La Ilustración (Spanish Enlightenment), is a detailed and comprehensive treatise on global geography and its practical applications, including how to read maps and use globes. The work is divided into four main parts, namely: 1. ‘Introduccion’ (pp. 1-10); 2. La Descripcion Politica de la Terra’ (pp.11-161), which describes the political geography of the world; 3. ‘Descripcion Artificiosa de la Terra’ (pp.162-205), which includes a description of the physical world and how it can be classified; 4.‘Practica de el Globo, y Mapas’ (pp. 206-255), perhaps the most interesting aspect of the work, it presents a fascinating discussion of diverse elements of applied geography, in the form of 64 questions, asked and answered. Of particular interest, the work outlines the best way to use maps and globes. The work is concluded by a gazetteer of the latitude and longitude of various locations around the globe and two illustrated leaves of plates featuring 5 figures of the profile views of the world, an artillery sphere and globes. Importantly, the present example of the book is complete as issued. That being said, two leaves have been purposefully removed from the book (ff. 6 and 7), representing the ‘Approbaccion’ (Approbation). It appears that all surviving examples of the work have the same leaves removed, indicating that this was done in the establishment of the publisher Antonio Villargordo before the work’s release, ensuring the book as amended possesses a complete collation as issued. It is not known why these leaves were removed, but perhaps they featured a politically inconvenient passage or reference that concerned the royal censors during a period when all printing in Spain was highly regulated by both ecclesiastical and civil authorities. One of the examples of the work at the Biblioteca Nacional de España (Shelfmark: GMM/545) can be viewed on line, featuring the same two leaves as having been removed. Cristóbal Machado originally hailed from the Seville region and established himself as a watchmaker in Salamanca. It must be remembered that during the 18th Century watchmakers were imbued with great skills that could cross over into a variety of different disciplines, including instrument making, globe production and printing. During the 1750s, Machado became deeply involved in the academic life of the University of Salamanca and participated in a series of debates of the nature of geography sponsored by the mayor of Salamanca. Consequent to these debates, in 1758, Machado submitted a paper, co-written with Ramón de Guevara, to the Real Academia de la Historia entitled ‘Discursos critico-geográficos’ (Boletín Informes de la Real Academia de la Historia, Nov., 1899, p. 394). This paper spurred Machado to explore a grander study of geography, leading to the production of the present work. Machado attained considerable success as a watchmaker, with his pieces being offered to the Spanish aristocracy in the finest shops in both Madrid and Salamanca. He remained engaged in academic geography and towards the end of his life edited and annotated a Spanish edition of the treatise of Nicolas Bion, the French royal geographer, Usos o problemas de las esferas i glóbos celéstes i terráqueos, para el manéjo de éstos instruméntos (Madrid, 1790). The present work is extremely rare and was issued in only a single edition (printed 1762), erroneous references to a 1761 edition exist. We can find no records of any other examples of the work appearing in dealers’ catalogs or at auction during the last 25 years and we can locate only 3 institutional examples: 2 examples at the Biblioteca Nacional de España (Shelfmarks: 2/49297 and GMM/545) and a single example at the Bibliotecas de la Unversidad de Salamanca (Shelfmark: BG/32843).

        FRENCH AND INDIAN CRUELTY; EXEMPLIFIED IN THE LIFE AND VARIOUS VICISSITUDES OF FORTUNE, OF PETER WILLIAMSON, A DISBANDED SOLDIER. CONTAINING A PARTICULAR ACCOUNT OF THE MANNERS, CUSTOMS AND DRESS OF THE SAVAGES...A SUMMARY OF THE TRANSACTIONS OF THE SEVERAL PROVINCES OF PENNSYLVANIA (INCLUDING PHILADELPHIA), NEW YORK, NEW ENGLAND...FROM THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE WAR IN THOSE PARTS, PARTICULARLY THOSE RELATIVE TO THE INTENDED ATTACK ON CROWN POINT AND NIAGARA, AND AN ACCURATE AND SUCCINCT DETAIL OF THE SIEGE OF OSWEGO

      Glasgow, 1758. Early half calf and marbled boards, black gilt morocco label. Boards rubbed, worn at spine ends. Bookplate on front pastedown, lengthy annotations on front free endpaper. Internally clean. Very good. In a chemise and half blue morocco slipcase. The self-styled "third edition, with considerable improvements," issued the year after the superlatively rare first, of what Vail calls "the most popular of all Indian captivities." Peter Williamson was born in Scotland, but was kidnapped and sold into bondage in Pennsylvania when he was eight years old. His master proved kind and ultimately his benefactor, leaving Williamson enough money to marry and establish himself on a farm near the forks of the Delaware. In 1754 he was captured by Indians, probably Delaware, held captive for three months, and submitted to various tortures and humiliations. Escaping in January 1755, he joined the army and was first sent to Boston, then with the expedition to defend Oswego. When Oswego was captured by the French, he was wounded and taken prisoner. Ultimately he was paroled and sent to England, arriving in November 1756. Williamson's narrative is vivid and detailed, deserving of the interest and editions it evoked. It served as a model for many later narratives, and numerous fictional treatments stole details from it. One of the earliest obtainable editions, the first existing in only a few copies.
