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

      London: Printed for T. Becket and P.A. De Hondt, 1763. Half titles. 12mo. Antique half calf and marbled boards. 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 DREADFUL VISITATION IN A SHORT ACCOUNT OF THE PROGRESS AND EFFECTS OF THE PLAGUE, THE LAST TIME IT SPREAD IN THE CITY OF LONDON IN THE YEAR 1665 EXTRACTED FROM THE MEMOIRS OF A PERSON WHO RESIDED THERE, DURING THE WHOLE TIME OF THAT INFECTION

      Germantown: Christopher Sower, 1763. Dbd. Minor foxing. Good plus. First American edition of this abridgement of Daniel Defoe's JOURNAL OF THE PLAGUE YEAR, and notable for its imprint. Christopher Sower (Sauer) was an early American publisher based in Germantown who took over his father's publishing business in the mid-18th century. By 1754 the English publications of the Sauer press began to bear his imprint. He became a bishop of the Dunkers, or German Baptist Brethren, and as such was suspected of treason during the Revolution. His property was seized and sold "at auction" for a pittance, and, Sabin states, "The British used the poor fellow's books for making cartridges!" This Sower imprint is scarce, with only twenty-five copies recorded in ESTC, and rarely encountered in the marketplace. EVANS 9373. HILDEBURN 1885. AUSTIN 632. ESTC W6026.

        TRAITÉ DE PAIX ENTRE LE ROI, LE ROI D'ESPAGNE ET LE ROI DE LA GRANDE-BRETAGNE, CONLU A PARIS LE 10 FÉVRIER 1763. AVEC L'ACCESSION DU ROI DE PORTUGAL

      Paris: Imprimerie Royal, 1763. Quarto. Contemporary red morocco, gilt, with gilt crest and floral gilt designs on spine. 19th-century inscription on front fly leaf. Very minor foxing. A fine copy. The official French printing of the Treaty of Paris, the most important American Treaty of the 18th century except for the treaty ending the American War of Independence. It closed the long conflict of the Seven Years' or French and Indian War, and marked the end of France as a power in North America, producing a major shift in the balance of power on the continent. The removal of France from the North American continent opened the door for the expansion of the British colonies over the Alleghenies and gave them a self-sufficient posture never before possible. The removal of the French counterweight opened the door for American Independence. By the terms of the treaty all of Canada except two small islands off Newfoundland was ceded to England, as were all French lands east of the Mississippi. All of Louisiana was ceded to Spain, and France's New World holdings were reduced to several Caribbean islands, including Martinique, Guadeloupe, and several smaller islands. At the same time, East and West Florida went from Spain to England, who also received the Grenadines and Dominica. A vital landmark in the political history of colonial North America.

        An essay towards solving a problem in the doctrine of chances In Philosophical Transactions

      London, 1763. Bayes, Thomas (1702?"61). An essay towards solving a problem in the doctrine of chances. In Philosophical Transactions 53 (1763): 370?"418. Whole volume. [12], 529, [15, including index and errata]pp. 25 engraved plates. 225 x 170 mm. 18th century paneled calf, rebacked with new leather label, lower corners bumped. Fine, crisp copy. Small ownership stamp on general title. First Edition, journal issue. of Bayes?s extremely influential work on the concept of ?inverse probability,? the basis of modern statistical inference. Bayes?s paper marked ?a truly Copernican revolution in statistical concept,? giving rise to ?one of the most widely known eponyms in all of science, Baysian inference . . . The ideas this essay contains have been of vast influence? (Stigler, The History of Statistics, p. 97). With the advent of the World Wide Web, Baysian networks have been applied extensively to fundamental search structures such as those used by Google. Bayes?s Essay contains the first statement of Bayes?s Theorem for calculating ?inverse probabilities,? which forms the basis for methods of decision analysis, statistical learning machines, and Bayesian networks. Bayesian networks are complex diagrams that organize the body of knowledge in any given area by mapping out cause-and-effect relationships among key variables and encoding them with numbers that represent the extent to which one variable is likely to affect another. Programmed into computers, these systems can automatically generate optimal predictions or decisions even when key pieces of information are missing. Bayesian or subjective decision theory is arguably the most comprehensive theory of decision-making; however, until the late 1980s, it had little application due to the stupefying complexity of the mathematics involved. The rapid advances in computing power and the development of key mathematical equations during the late 1980s and early 1990s made it possible to compute Bayesian networks with enough variables to be useful in practical applications. Bayes, a Nonconformist minister (i.e., one who did not subscribe to the Thirty-Nine Articles of the Established Church of England), published only two works during his lifetime: Divine Benefits (1731), a religious treatise; and Introduction to the Doctrine of Fluxions (1736), in which he responded to Bishop Berkeley?s attack on the logical foundations of Newton?s calculus. For the latter work he was elected a member of the Royal Society in 1742. In 1763, two years after Bayes?s death, Richard Price, a fellow Nonconformist minister, economist, and actuary to whom Bayes had bequeathed his papers, found Bayes?s ?Essay? and submitted it to the Royal Society for publication. The arguments in Bayes?s paper were adopted by Laplace, who saw in them the basis for statistical inference; they were later challenged by George Boole in his Laws of Thought.

        Carte de L'Isle de Sainte Lucie

      Paris: J.N. Bellin, 1763. Copper-engraved map, in excellent condition, stamped on upper-center with the stamp of the French royal maritime printing office: "De l'Imp. de Dep. de la Mar. à Versail" A very elegant and detailed map of St. Lucia by one of the greatest French cartographers This very fine map of St. Lucia surrounds the island in seas traversed by rhumb lines. The rugged topography of this, one of the most scenic islands of the Caribbean, is captured in great detail. Oriented with the east towards the top of the map, the island features two broad ranges of mountains, which were formed by extreme tectonic activity. In the centre of the island is a plain that features a road, "Chemin de la Longue Chasse ou de la Soufriere" that runs the length of the island. In the lower left of the map is the "Pointe du Gros Piton", the distinctive mountain formation that cascades into the sea, and that is today St. Lucia's most celebrated site. The various aspects of the coast are labelled in great detail, and many places near the sea are dotted with the cultivated fields of sugarcane and banana plantations. Three cartographic insets adorn the upper portions of the map, each depicting one of the island's best harbours. Intended for practical use by mariners, each harbour is heavily detailed with depth soundings and notations of hazards. The insets are "Plan du Port du Carenage" (site of St. Lucia's modern capital of Castries), "Plan du Cul de Sac Des Roseaux" and "Mouilliages du Grande Islet et du Choc". The map is embellished with a very fine title cartouche, bordered by transitional Rococo and Neoclassical motifs, and surmounted by the French royal arms. St. Lucia was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1500, and named for St. Lucy of Syracuse. The French assumed auspices over the island in 1660, having signed a treaty with the indigenous Carib tribe. Over the next century and a half, the island went back and forth fourteen times between French and British sovereignty before the British assumed an enduring hegemony in 1814. The island became an independent member of the Commonwealth in 1979. This map was part of the l'Hydrographie Française, a great sea atlas, published by Bellin in two volumes from 1755 to 1766. This was one of the finest works of the prolific Bellin, the "Hydrographer to the King", who was so highly regarded that the British (who were almost always at war with France) made him a member of their Royal Society.

        La Richesse de l'Etat.

      1763 - 19 pièces reliées en 1 vol. in-8, veau havane marbré, dos orné à nerfs, pièces de titre en maroquin rouge (reliure de l'époque). Précieux recueil relatif à La Richesse de l'Etat de Roussel de la Tour dont la publication en 1763 à la veille d'un lit de justice où le roi allait imposer l'enregistrement d'édits fiscaux - connut un grand retentissement : « la perspective de l'impôt unique fascinait alors tellement les esprits qu'une surprenante éclosion de brochures s'attacha à commenter et à discuter les Richesses de l'État » (Stourm). Le recueil établi et annoté à l'époque rassemble la quasi intégralité des opuscules parus en 1763. Le compilateur, manifestement convaincu du projet de Roussel de la Tour, a pu ainsi noter en regard du titre de départ : « Ce projet n'a besoin que d'être exposé pour être entendu et il suffit de l'entendre pour apercevoir d'un coup d'oeil les avantages immenses qui en résulteraient. L'auteur est un citoyen zêlé sans prétention et se bornant au seul avantage de soulager d'une partie du poids des impôts? et de délivrer le peuple de tout subside. Il résulte de ce projet, que le bonheur des Peuples, la Gloire de l'Etat et le revenu du Roy - s'accroîtreront de la suppression des frais de régie et de la diminution des profits de ce qu'on appelle gens d'affaires. » Une pagination manuscrite relie l'ensemble des pièces précédées de la table des titres. 1. ROUSSEL DE LA TOUR. La Richesse de l'Etat. S.l., 1763.

Cet impôt serait payé par toute la population répartie en vingt classes, et il serait proportionnel à leur aisance. Ce projet était étranger aux principes fondamentaux du Tableau économique, puisqu'il comportait la réduction de tous les impôts à une capitation personnelle. Mais la formule de l'impôt unique était une de celles auxquelles aboutissait la doctrine économique. » (INED). Contient le Tableau de répartition de deux millions personnes.

        THE DREADFUL VISITATION IN A SHORT ACCOUNT OF THE PROGRESS AND EFFECTS OF THE PLAGUE, THE LAST TIME IT SPREAD IN THE CITY OF LONDON IN THE YEAR 1665 EXTRACTED FROM THE MEMOIRS OF A PERSON WHO RESIDED THERE, DURING THE WHOLE TIME OF THAT INFECTION.

      Germantown: Christopher Sower, 1763. - 16pp. Dbd. Minor foxing. Good plus. First American edition of this abridgement of Daniel Defoe's JOURNAL OF THE PLAGUE YEAR, and notable for its imprint. Christopher Sower (Sauer) was an early American publisher based in Germantown who took over his father's publishing business in the mid-18th century. By 1754 the English publications of the Sauer press began to bear his imprint. He became a bishop of the Dunkers, or German Baptist Brethren, and as such was suspected of treason during the Revolution. His property was seized and sold "at auction" for a pittance, and, Sabin states, "The British used the poor fellow's books for making cartridges!" This Sower imprint is scarce, with only twenty-five copies recorded in ESTC, and rarely encountered in the marketplace. EVANS 9373. HILDEBURN 1885. AUSTIN 632. ESTC W6026.

      Leeuwarden: Abraham Ferweda [vol. 1]; ... en Gerrit Tresling [vols. 2-3], 1763. Folio, 3 volumes in 2. (13 7/8 x 9 7/8 inches). Titles with a typographic border printed in red, engraved arms on the dedication. 39 hand-coloured plates engraved by Jan C. Philips or Jacob Folkema after Knoop. Contemporary speckled calf, spines with raised bands in seven compartments, bands tooled in gilt, red morocco lettering piece in the second compartment, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, red stained edges A lovely set of the first editions of Knoop's fruit monographs: "among the earliest books on the subject to be illustrated with coloured plates" (Oak Spring Pomona). Knoop served as the head gardener to the Dowager Princess of Orange et Marienburg, near Leeuwarden. "[His] fruit monographs, apples and pears in the first, plums, peaches, cherries, nuts and soft fruit in the second, are among the earliest books on the subject to be illustrated with coloured plates, the Pomologia ones packed with a dozen or so varieties, each with a label giving its time of ripening ... As descriptive records of varieties of fruit in cultivation, observed by a dedicated and scientific gardener late in his career, they are often cited by later authors" (Oak Spring Pomona). In all, Knoop published four monographs in the series, three of which are found here, with the fourth on herbs and vegetables being published in 1769 over a decade after the first part. Raphael notes that "the last part is very rare and most sets lack this final section on the contents of the kitchen garden." The plates, based on Knoop's own drawings, are made up as follows: in the first work are 12 plates of apples showing 103 varieties; 8 of pears showing 82 varieties. The plates in the second work include one plate with 2 quince varieties; 3 varieties of cherry on one plate; 3 varieties of plum on one plate; 1 apricot, 1 peach, 1 almond, 1 fig, each on a single plate; 2 grapes on one plate; 1 chestnut, 1 walnut, 1 hazelnut, 1 medlar, 1 mulberry, 1 raspberry, 1 blackberry, each on a single plate; 3 currants on one plate; 1 gooseberry, 1 unidentified fruit tree, 1 cornelian cherry, each on a single plate. No illustrations appear in the third part concerning trees. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 3766, 3767 & 3768; Oak Spring Pomona , p. 131.

        The World describ'd; or, a New and Correct set of Maps ... Each map engraved on Copper by Herman Moll ..

      [London: Robert Sayer, 1763. Broadside (15 5/8 x 9 1/4 inches). A rare print and mapseller's broadside, advertising a late issue of Moll's atlas "The World Described" and a number of other atlases and county maps, and "upward ot 1200 single Sheet Maps, and Plans, by several Hands" Robert Sayer came to be one of the dominant figures in mid to late 18th-century print and map selling, latterly in partnership with John Bennett. The present broadside was published by Sayer alone: he took over the business of Philip Overton in about 1750, and the reference to "the late war" in the second to last line, suggests that it was published just after the end of the Seven Years' War which ended in 1763. This work, aside from the detailed descriptions of the 29 maps in the 'The World describ'd; or, a New and Correct Set of Maps', also describes the "English Gentleman's Guide" "portable in a Cloak Bag, or the Pocket'; and lists a number of the large-format surveys of the individual English counties (Oxfordshire by 'Mr. Oliver' and equivalent maps of Essex, Middlesex, Hertford, Kent, Sussex and Yorkshire); aa well as mentioning a de l'Isle atlas with 110 maps, Le Clerc's "Atlas of Ancient Geography" with 100 maps; wall maps; "Friex's 28 Sheet Map of Flanders and Brabant"; "several large Maps of Holland and Flanders, and upwards of 1200 single Sheet Maps, and Plans, by several Hands". This broadside is apparently unrecorded by ESTC, but does mention two other similar but earlier broadsides published by Moll himself, N27709 and T142508, both of which performed the same function as the present work.

Dans cette œuvre riche, à la pensée vigoureuse, il proposait une idée générale du modèle humain, que Buffon avait précédemment développé en relation avec sa définition des espèces. L'auteur y soumet des théories aussi audacieuses que paradoxales , qu'il renia du reste peu avant sa mort. Sur Dieu, sur l'âme et les sensations, il attribue même aux étoiles la faculté de se reproduire. Malgré la mise à l'index de son ouvrage, Jean-Baptiste Robinet à exercé une influence sur le développement des idées au Siècle des Lumières. Mention de troisième édition sur le premier tome.

Joachim Faiguet de Villeneuve (1703-1780) commença par publier quelques morceaux de prose et de vers dans différents journaux, puis des articles plus conséquents, comme Projet d'un établissement singulier paru, sous l'anonymat, dans le Journal économique de septembre 1755, et qui n'est en fait qu'une première mouture de l'article Moraves, qu'il donnera dix ans plus tard à l'Encyclopédie. Faiguet était entré en effet en contact avec les milieux encyclopédistes et dès 1753, il remit à Diderot et d'Alembert divers articles de grammaire, de mathématiques, de théologie, de morale, de droit, etc. Signalons, dans le tome III de l'Encyclopédie, paru en 1753, l'article Citations ; dans le tome IV (1754), l'article Dimanche, loué par Grimm ; dans le tome V (1755), l'article Epargne ; dans le tome VI (1756), les articles Etudes, Expulser, Explicite, Extraction des racines, Fêtes, Fidèle ; dans le tome X (1765), l'article Moraves, repris du Journal oeconomique et qui fut encore reproduit dans l'Encyclopédie méthodique. Et dans le tome XVII (1765), l'article Usure, écrit dès 1758, publié à nouveau en 1770. « Dans ses multiples articles ou ouvrages, Faiguet cherche comment améliorer le sort des classes laborieuses et perfectionner l'espèce humaine. Imprégné d'idées physiocratiques, il sait que la masse des biens dont dépend la puissance des souverains est toujours proportionnée aux fruits de la terre, et que ces fruits dépendent essentiellement de l'aisance des laboureurs : c'est donc cette classe qu'il convient d'encourager. Depuis quelques années, la population est devenue à la mode. Mais est-il besoin d'aider la nature qui tend d'elle-même à la reproduction ? Parons plutôt à la misère et à la dégénérescence. « Le vrai secret », la pierre philosophale qui permet d'obtenir le bonheur et l'aisance tient en deux mots : travail, épargne » (Jacqueline Hecht, Trois précurseurs, in Population n°1, 1959).

        NEWFOUNDLAND: Carte Réduite de l'île de Terre-Neuve. Dressée d'après les Plans anglois de J. Cook et M. Lane .

      - A fine French edition of James Cook & Michael Lane’s magisterial chart of Newfoundland, considered to be one of the finest scientific surveys conducted anywhere in the world during the Enlightenment Era. This exquisitely engraved, large-format sea chart was produced by the Dépôt Général de la Marine (the maritime chart printing office of the French government) just after the end of the American Revolution, and features James Cook (the future Pacific explorer) & Michal Lane’s ground-breaking survey of Newfoundland and southern Labrador. Cook & Lane’s survey is widely considered to be one of the most technically impressive accomplishments of scientific mapping done during the Enlightenment Era, and the present edition of the map was made by the French government to manage its extensive interests in the fishing industry in the region. The incredibly jagged coasts of the Island of Newfoundland and Southern Labrador are portrayed with amazing accuracy, based on almost a decade of painstaking trigonometric surveys. All coastal features are meticulously labelled and the extensive offshore banks are carefully sounded with bathymetric readings. Cook & Lane’s Epic Survey of Newfoundland The story behind the creation of this chart is fascinating and one of the most consequential in the history of 18th Century cartography. In 1763, Britain had won the Seven Years' War, however, the Treaty of Paris compelled Britain to cede the tiny islands of St. Pierre & Miquelon (located off the southern coast of Newfoundland) to France and to provide the French with limited fishing rights along Newfoundland's shores. The Newfoundland fishery was then big business, in fact, it was annually worth nearly as much as Virginia's tobacco crop, which was Britain's largest single source of revenue from British North American colonies. The British had an imperative to properly manage the fishery (and limit French activities to strictly what was conceded in the Treaty), the problem was, all existing charts of Newfoundland's coasts were wildly inaccurate. For instance, the contemporary chart of record for the region was Mount & Page's A Chart Shewing Part of the Sea Coast of Newfoundland, from ye Bay of Bulls to Little Placentia Exactly and Carefully Lay'd Down by John Gaudy, first issued in 1715, it as so imprecise as to be scarcely useful. That year, Admiral Thomas Graves, the Governor of Newfoundland, appointed Lt. James Cook (1728-79) to survey the shores of Newfoundland and southern Labrador. Cook had already won acclaim for his masterly chart of the St. Lawrence River that was used by the British fleet to successfully besiege Quebec City in 1759. However, given the ferocious weather and the exceptional cragginess of Newfoundland's shores, this would prove to be a dramatically more difficult assignment. Fortunately, Cook was assisted by Michael Lane (fl. 1763-84), a highly competent surveyor who refined his skills to the highest levels under Cook's mentorship. The Newfoundland survey proceeded expeditiously until 1767, when Cook was appointed by the Admiralty to lead the first of the three Pacific Voyages that would make him the foremost explorer of the 18th Century. The superlative quality of the surveys already sent back to England, combined with glowing reports from Cook's superiors had been responsible for this august appointment. From that point onwards, Lane was left to lead the project to survey Newfoundland on his own. From that point onwards, Lane was left to lead the project to survey Newfoundland on his own, completing the endeavour in 1773. Cook & Lane’s general chart of Newfoundland was first published as A General Chart Of The Island Of Newfoundland with the Rocks & Soundings. Drawn from Surveys taken by Order of the Right Honourable the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty. By James Cook and Michael Lane Surveyors and Others (London, 1775). This chart and the various larger-scale regional surveys of the coasts immediately became the authoritati

      Dublin: Printed for Sarah Cotter 8vo (20.3 cm, 8"). xii, 412, [16] pp.. 1763 First Irish edition, following the Oxford first of the preceding year: one of the most authoritative and scholarly of such reports of the time, accompanied by examinations of treason, homicide, accessories, the writings of Lord Hale, etc. Cotter's printing seems to have appeared in two variants, as per ESTC; in the present example, the catchword on p. 406 is "to." Cotter was the daughter of Joseph Cotter and successor to his printing business. She was active from 1757 to 1767 and published/printed law, technical and religious books, belle lettres, and a wide variety of other productions. The trial mentioned in the title refers to that of those arrested for participation in the Jacobite rising of 1745, an attempt by "Bonnie Prince Charlie" (i.e., Charles Edward Stuart) to regain the British throne. (He had timed his effort for a moment when much of the British military was occupied on the continent by the War of the Austrian Succession.) Contemporary speckled calf, rebacked, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label and blind-tooled tulip decorations between raised bands; hinges (inside) reinforced. Front pastedown and free endpaper each with one small early inked annotation (shelf and price?); first and last few leaves with offsetting to margins; pages generally mildly age-toned with a very few scattered light spots.

        AN HEBREW GRAMMAR, COLLECTED CHIEFLY FROM THOSE OF MR. ISRAEL LYONS...AND THE REV. RICHARD GREY...TO WHICH IS SUBJOINED A PRAXIS, TAKEN FROM THE SACRED CLASSICS, AND CONTAINING A SPECIMEN OF THE WHOLE HEBREW LANGUAGE: WITH A SKETCH OF THE HEBREW POETRY AS RETRIEVED BY BISHOP HARE

      Boston: Reverend the President and Fellows of Harvard-College, 1763. Half title. Contemporary half calf and marbled paper boards, raised bands. Binding rubbed and edgeworn. Contemporary gift inscriptions on front free endpaper, ownership signatures excised from upper margin of half title and titlepage. A few instances of ink notes, emendations, and cross-outs in the text. Some tanning and foxing. A good copy, in original condition. A presentation copy, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "For Mr. John Lovell from his most Hble. Servt. S.S." Stephen Sewall (1734-1804) was professor of Hebrew at Harvard and was one of the leading scholars of his day, specializing in Oriental languages and Hebrew. In 1761, Sewall succeeded Judah Monis as instructor in Hebrew at Harvard, a position Sewall held for more than twenty years. The recipient of this volume was almost certainly the John Lovell who was the longtime headmaster of the Boston Latin School. This is the second Hebrew grammar produced in America, preceded only by a work by Monis published in 1735. Rosenbach asserts that the Hebrew types used in it were destroyed by fire in 1764. The final twenty-three pages are comprised of a study of Hebrew poetry. There are several early corrections in the text, possibly in the hand of Sewall or Lovell.

        Centuria Insectorum Rariorum quam. praeside. Carolo von Linné. submittit Boas Johansson.

      - Upsalia (1763). 8vo. (180 x145mm). pp. (6), 32. Cloth strip on spine. First edition. The 'Centuria Insectorum' (one hundred insects) is a 1763 taxonomic work by Carl Linnaeus, and defended as a thesis by Boas Johansson; which of the two men should be credited with its authorship has been the subject of some controversy. It includes descriptions of 102 new insects and crustacean species that had been sent to Linnaeus from British America, Suriname, Java and other locations. Most of the new names included in the 'Centuria Insectorum' are still in use, although a few have been sunk into synonymy, and one was the result of a hoax: a Common Brimstone butterfly with spots painted on was described as the new "species" Papilio ecclipsis.The specimens used by Linnaeus or Johansson in writing Centuria Insectorum include some provided by Dr Alexander Garden, a horticulturist from Charles Town in the Province of South Carolina, by Carl Gustav Dahlberg in Suriname, by Hans Johan Nordgren in Java, and from the collection of Baron Charles De Geer from the Province of Pennsylvania. The work appeared also in the 'Amoenitates Academicae'.Soulsby 2251. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Je crois qu’on le traite avec injustice sa conduite en Italie ma toujours paru celle d’un patriote sage et bien dévoué à la république. Ce n’est pas sa faute si on lui avait donné une mission qui devait nécessairement déplaire à une grande partie de l’armée de la république Cisalpine.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM GEORGE CROGHAN, CONCERNING A MAP OF THE AMERICAN COLONIES]

      [N.p., 1763. Quarto sheet. Separation at old fold, repaired on verso with contemporary paper. Minor wear otherwise. Very good. Croghan, a deputy Indian agent serving under British agent William Johnson, writes to an unnamed recipient concerning a map of the northern British colonies. This letter presumably accompanied the map in question, and both this letter and the map were likely sent to a cartographer or artisan of some kind; due to the date and the available resources, it is almost certain that the map to which Croghan refers is that of Lewis Evans. The letter reads, in part: "I Send you this Map wh. is to be Inlarged Takeing In all the province of New York to Connecticut River and as far back as the Limits of Cannada all the Jersey Pensylvaine Maryland & Virginia the Lackes & back Cuntry is properly & well Lay'd. Down in this & the Larger Scail its Lay'd. Down on the better, one Copey is for Sir William Johnson to Settle the Boundry with the Indians by the other is to be Sent the proprietors when the boundry is [pricht?] of, on itt." In the lower left corner is written in another hand: "The Map when Enlarged was 7 ft 2 in Length & 4 ft 3 inches in Breadth. Takeing in Connecticut River & the Massisippa all Virgina & Canda to the Lat. of Montreal." As indicated in the letter, the map was to assist in the boundary dispute between the British and the Native Americans, giving a probable date for the letter to circa 1763, around the end of Pontiac's Rebellion and the Royal Proclamation of 1763, which legally curtailed white settlement past the Appalachian Mountains. George Croghan (1718-82) was an Irish-born fur trader who became acquainted with the Great Lake Region Indians and their languages through his trading pursuits. Breaking the traditional modus operandi of British traders, Croghan traveled to the Indians, rather than waiting for them to arrive at a British post. This allowed him to spend time among the native peoples, whom he grew to respect, learning their customs and languages. In 1756 he began service as the deputy Indian agent under William Johnson, the British Indian agent in the area, a position he held until retiring in 1772. A fascinating document, which gives rise to the question of whether or not such a large scale map was created, and if so, does it still exist somewhere.

        A COMPLEAT HISTORY OF THE LATE WAR; OR ANNUAL REGISTER OF IT'S [sic] RISE, PROGRESS, AND EVENTS IN EUROPE, ASIA, AFRICA, AND AMERICA. AND EXHIBITING THE STATE OF THE BELLIGERENT POWERS AT THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE WAR

      Dublin, 1763. Contemporary speckled calf, gilt leather label. Extremities rubbed. Minor scattered foxing and soiling. Very good. An interesting work, first published in Dublin, comprised of selections from the ANNUAL REGISTER from 1758 to 1763, this work provides an excellent contemporary account of the military events of the French and Indian War, especially the Siege of Quebec. This work is sometimes ascribed to Edmund Burke, as he was editor of the ANNUAL REGISTER during the period covered. The attribution to John Wright stems from the London 1765 edition which gives that name, possibly a pseudonym for Burke as author. With a large folding map of the British and French territories in North America, a folding view of Montreal, a plan of Louisbourg, and several engraved portraits, subjects of which include Admiral Boscawen, Gen. James Wolfe, George III, Prince Ferdinand, and Frederick III.

      Germantown, 1763. Quarto. Contemporary calf over wooden boards; metal clasps lacking. Dampstaining and wear to edges of first and last few leaves. Some light soiling to text. Contemporary manuscript notations to endpapers. Very good to near fine. In a cloth box, gilt leather label.

The present edition, rumored to have been issued in 2000 copies, was printed by Christopher Saur II, son of Christoph Saur the elder, a native of Wittgenstein, Germany. The elder Saur emigrated to Germantown, Pennsylvania and practiced medicine before turning to printing. It was he who printed the 1743 first edition. A nice copy of an important early American Bible.

        A PLAIN AND FAITHFUL NARRATIVE OF THE ORIGINAL DESIGN, RISE, PROGRESS AND PRESENT STATE OF THE INDIAN CHARITY- SCHOOL AT LEBANON, IN CONNECTICUT

      Boston, 1763. Early 20th century three-quarter calf and marbled boards. Bookplate of C.L.F. Robinson on front pastedown. A large, untrimmed copy. Minor toning and foxing; p.39 torn at edge, minutely affecting text. Pencil notes of Thomas W. Streeter, but without his bookplate. Very good. From the famous collection of C.L.F. Robinson in Newport, and later Thomas W. Streeter, an interesting copy of this famous work. The first installment in Wheelock's series of publications giving the history of the first Indian school in America. This volume covers 1754-62 and was followed by eight more such reports, taking the story up to 1775. Wheelock discusses the origins of the school and defends the missionary endeavor. The school, founded by Wheelock, opened in 1754 under the name of Moors Charity School. In 1772 it was removed to Hanover, "where it formed the germ of the institution, known as Dartmouth College" (Field). At the conclusion of the text (at the bottom of the recto of the final leaf) is a contemporary manuscript note reading: "Memorandum. Mr. Wheeler has transmitted an account of ye school for 2 years to Dr. Gifford who his ready to communicate it to any enquirer." Andrew Gifford (1700-84) was a Baptist minister and numismatist who donated a collection of books and a pair of globes to Wheelock's school in 1764.
