         THE HISTORY OF LOUISIANA, OR OF THE WESTERN PARTS OF VIRGINIA AND CAROLINA

      London: Printed for T. Becket and P.A. De Hondt, 1763. Two volumes. [4],l,vii,[1],368pp. plus folding map; [8],272pp. plus two folding map. Half titles. 12mo. Contemporary full calf, gilt ruled, leather spine labels, edges painted red. Front hinges cracked, boards rubbed, spines slightly chipped, light corner and edge wear. Light dampstaining to initial leaves of both volumes, occasional foxing throughout. About very good. First English language edition of one of the most useful contemporary authorities on French Louisiana, based on the author's sixteen-year residence there. Jefferson owned a copy of this London edition, and instructed Lewis and Clark to take a copy on their expedition (Lewis borrowed Benjamin Smith Barton's single-volume second London edition of 1774). Le Page du Pratz offers a great deal of useful information about the Natchez and other Mississippi tribes, and his work as a whole has been the basis for many later studies of the period. "...Valuable for showing French claims to southern territory east of the Mississippi and for particulars concerning Indian nations there" - Howes. Of special interest is a short account of Louis de St. Denis' expedition to New Mexico in 1715. "...A curious mixture of history, travel narrative, tall stories, and reminiscences...touch[ing] upon almost every phase of Louisiana in his time..." - Clark. There is a folding plan of New Orleans and a "Carte de la Louisiane," which shows a large eastward- flowing Missouri River. HOWES L266, "b." CLARK I:75. PILLING, PROOF-SHEETS 2261. GRAFF 2463.

         The royal English dictionary: or, a treasury of the English language, to which is prefixed a comprehensive grammar of the English tongue .

      R. Baldwin, J. Richardson [et al.], London 1763 - Second edition improved, 8vo, viii, 16, plus unpaginated lexicon in double column; with the approbation leaf, in which George III (to whom the book is dedicated) grants Fenning a license to print his dictionary for a period of 14 years. Occasional dampstaining, extremities neatly repaired, edges lightly rubbed and scuffed, overall a very good, sound copy in contemporary full calf with raised bands and red morocco label lettered in gilt on spine. Little is known of Fenning. He was a compiler of several school texts, including an arithmetic, a geography, and a speller, the last of which had notable popularity in America before Webster. Webster himself was no doubt well acquainted with Fenning's speller, which in London made a 71st edition in 1823. This dictionary contains terms used in mathematics, astronomy, chemistry, architecture, printing, natural history and navigation, with "each word followed by an initial letter to denote the part of speech" --the first time I believe in a dictionary. A competent, trustworthy dictionary on "so extensive a plan as to unite the different excellencies of all other English dictionaries." Alston V, 288; Kennedy 6259.

Michel Adanson] proclaimed his contempt for `systems` and proposed a natural classification based upon all characters rather than upon a few arbitrarily selected ones, an attempt that brought him into conflict with Linnaeus.". - "Adansons Interessen verlagerten sich mehr und mehr auf Fragen des Systematik im Allgemeinen. So zog er in seinen 1763 erschienen `Familles des plantes` aus der Überlegung, dass jede menschliche Geselllschaft je nach den Erfahrungen, denen sie in ihrer jeweiligen Umwelt ausgesetzt ist, ihren besonderen Beitrag zum Wissen liefern kann, zwei Schlussfolgerungen: Zum einen seien bei der Klassifikation der Pflanzen nicht nur bestimmte, sondern alle Merkmale zu berücksichtigen. Zum anderen sei die Einführung neuer Pflanzennamen abzulehnen und stattdessen seinen sämtliche bereits existierenden Pflanzennamen zu sammeln. Mit beiden Schlussfolgerungen geriet Adanson in Opposition zu c. v. Linne, so dass den `Familles des plantes` die erhoffte Rezeption versagt blieb, auch wenn das Konzept der `natürlichen Familie` fortleben sollte". (Lexikon der bedeutenden Naturwissenschaftler.

         Autograph letter, signed, concerning Barbary pirates.

      - 2 pages (30.6 x 21.5 cm) on a bifolium, Algiers, 1 June 1763, to an unknown recipient, docketed on verso of integral blank "Algiers 1 June 1763 Consul Bruce"; a bit faded, some short fold separations. The great traveller and explorer of the Nile at the very beginning of his career abroad. In 1763 Bruce was appointed the British Consul at Algiers, charged with studying the antiquities and ruins of the country as well as maintaining diplomatic relations. In fact, Bruce's consular duties left almost no time for exploration, which he took up in earnest after he was relieved of his consular position in 1765. The present letter is likely one of the first reports that Bruce sent back to Great Britain. It explains his preparations for resisting the assaults of Barbary Pirates on British property. "There has been for these several days reports here that the Emperor of Morocco was putting out some Chebeques [war ships, usually mounted with 24 guns] to cruze upon the English And from Gibraltar it has been wrote that orders are come to bring all British subjects from the Moorish dominions & that a frigate has been stationed of Sallé Bar. I thought it my Duty in Case this should be true to speak to the Dey for leave to Export provisions to Mahon and Gibraltar should the Communications of those places with Theran be cut off. The King & principal Officers of the Government have assurd me that in the most Chearful manner that they will now & Every time Use supply & Assist these Garrisons as their own. . This Assurance the Dey Accompanied with Every Expression of Affection & Respect both for the King & For the Nation." Bruce makes a request for some assistance to be sent to him, claiming that such an attention would not only ease his burden but also flatter the Dey. "If there should be a War with Morocco & after it as it Can be but very short his Majesty should have occasion to send any person thither, I shall be much obliged to you." Bruce also hopes that consular help would allow him to begin his travel and exploration: "It would give me an Opportunity of passing through a great part of the inland Country barely known at all. . A journey into the Inland parts of the Country . I am Every day more & more convinced would bring to light a Number of very Valuable Antiquities. Every Camp or Courier that is despatched from the Beys or Government near the borders of the desert Give accounts of Large Cities that still have Immense remains nearly Entire but Every day suffering from the Barbarity of the Moors or by the need the Turks have of the Stones for Forts. A renegade formerly a Spanish priest Assures me that two days from Constantine There is a City much Larger than Madrid. ."
