        ARCHIVE OF PAPERS RELATING TO THE EARLY BUSINESS ENDEAVORS (AND DISREPUTABLE CONDUCT THEREIN) OF BENEDICT ARNOLD, INCLUDING TWO A.Ls.S.].

      London & New York. -1782. 1766 - 43pp., detailed below. Mostly folio. Most of the letters include integral blank leaf, docketed on verso. A few documents with significant paper loss, expertly repaired (though with some loss to text). Light scattered soiling, some minor offsetting. Overall, very good. In a red cloth portfolio case. An archive of business correspondence of Benedict Arnold, Revolutionary leader and later America's most famous traitor, shedding further light on his dubious character. The manuscripts present here all relate to Arnold's pre-Revolutionary business career and failure as a druggist and bookseller in New Haven, Connecticut, at a location a few blocks away from our present offices. Not a great deal seems to have been known about Arnold's early business ventures hitherto - the material available, for example, to Arnold’s principal modern biographer, Willard Sterne Randall, being comparatively scant. Arnold first entered business in 1761, and at first seems to have been successful. He visited London the next year, where he acquired stock on credit, and then set up shop on Chapel Street in New Haven under the famous sign (still preserved at the New Haven Historical Society): 'B. Arnold Druggist/ Bookseller &c./ From London/ Sibi Totique.' His biographer writes that, "His was more a department store than an apothecary, and fancier than a general store. . The only store of its kind in New Haven, it offered the usual herbs and medicines.but it specialized in luxuries" (Randall, p.38). While "for students across the green at Yale, he offered a rich assortment of books." Thus we find among his creditors many of the leading London publisher- booksellers of the day, including Thomas Longman himself, the map and printmaker Henry Overton, the Bible publishers Wright & Gill, and William Parker, proprietor of the radical GENERAL ADVERTISER. Later he also acquired a sloop and undertook trading voyages to the Caribbean and Canada. Most of these voyages, however, were devoted to smuggling rather than upstanding trade: "Benedict Arnold's business was secret by definition. To keep accurate records would have been self-destructive, yet not to engage to some degree of smuggling was all but impossible if such a business was to survive increasingly stringent British trade policies" (p.42). Despite these various enterprises, Arnold went bankrupt, owing some £16,000 when his business failed in the summer of 1766. The failure of Arnold's business was closely related to his support of the Patriot cause. He blamed his failure on the Sugar Act of 1764 and the Stamp Act of 1765, claiming they curtailed commerce. The evidence of this archive would suggest otherwise - that Arnold used these acts as an excuse for not settling debts he had no intention or ability to pay off. He first became active with the Sons of Liberty in mid-1766, and in January 1767 was involved in a notorious case of beating up a colonial tax collector. American liberty and Arnold's personal freedom from debt were to him, one and the same. In Randall's biography, Arnold is incorrectly described as having settled his debts and (Thomas Longman is incorrectly named as his principal creditor. In fact, Thomas Corbyn, from whose papers this archive derives, was Arnold's principal creditor and represented Arnold's creditors from the London end. These papers begin in July, 1766, after Arnold's failure. Unlike Arnold, Corbyn's business was rooted in Quaker honesty, as the entry in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography makes clear: "Corbyn's probity both at home and abroad was an important factor in the success of the firm.he frequently lent money to young men starting in business - and not infrequently lost it. . The life and career of Thomas Corbyn shows that the expanding drug trade of the eighteenth century was based on greater trust and probity than is often thought." To New York merchant Bernard Lintot, author of most of the letters to Corbyn, fell the unenviable task of dealing directly with Ar

      Edinburgh Printed by A. Donaldson 1766 - First Edition of "Terra Australis Cognita" CALLANDER, John. Terra Australis Cognita: or, Voyages to the Terra Australis, or Southern Hemisphere, during the Sixteenth, Seventeenth, and Eighteenth Centuries. Containing an account of the manners of the people, and the productions of the countries, hitherto found in the southern latitudes; the advantages that may result from further discoveries on this great continent, and the methods of establishing colonies there, to the advantage of Great Britain. With a preface by the editor, in which some geographical, nautical, and commercial questions are discussed. Edinburgh: Printed by A. Donaldson, 1766-1768.

Contemporary calf with red morocco gilt lettering labels and gilt volume numbers, band gilt ruled, edges sprinkled red. Some nearly invisible restoration to parts of the spines but otherwise a lovely copy. First edition of this very scarce and highly important collection of early voyages into the Southern hemisphere. The main source of this work is the French collection of voyages by Charles de Brosses (Paris, 1756). "As De Brosses had proposed that France settle Australia with her unwanted inhabitants, so Callander advises that the foundation of a colony be made on the island of New Britain as a suitable spot for the further exploration and settlement of the vast continent of New Holland, or Australia. He claimed that Australasia must fall to Great Britain because of her possession of sea power. Some of the forty-one narratives appear for the first time in English.[Callander] prefaces each article with a short introduction containing a description of the materials of which it is composed and an account of the writer. He omits many things that do not pertain to what immediately concerns Australia.But important journals, such as Magellan’s, Drake’s, Tasman’s, and some others he gives entirely. Also included are the accounts of Pedro Fernándes de Queirós, Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa, Francisco de Ulloa, Sir John Narbrough, Amédée François Frézier, Jacob Roggeveen, William Dampier, Lord Anson and others.The work is valuable both for its narrative and for its editorial comments" (Hill).

        Paralelle de la taille laterale...avec celle du lithotome-cache

      Amsterdam: Rey, 1766. 1st edition. Le Cat, Claude Nicolas (1700-1768). Parallele de la taille laterale . . . avec celle du lithotome-cache. 8vo. xiv, 16, 292, [12]pp. 7 folding plates. Amsterdam: Rey, 1766. 193 x 124 mm. Quarter sheep c. 1766, rubbed but internally fine. Gilt leather bookplate. <p>First Edition. Le Cat&#39;s summary work on the famous controversy between his gorgeret-cystitome and Frere Cume&#39;s lithotome-cache, which went on for 20 years. Famed in the sciences as well as surgery, Le Cat organized the Royal Academy of Sciences of Rouen and took on the likes of Haller and Rousseau in disputes. He invented several devices for lithotomy, of which the gorgeret-cystitome was the most ingenious. It was a multipurpose instrument that acted as a gorgeret when closed, a dilator when opened lengthways, and a lithotome when a blade was pushed out from its convex margin. To facilitate its use it had a button on the beak of the cystitome and the edges of the groove in the sound were turned in so that the blade could not become disengaged.</p><p> While Le Cat had the support of most lithotomists for his device, the lithotome-cache when suitably modified proved its worth over and above the doubtful reputation of the surgeon-priest Fr. Cume. Murphy, History of Urology, pp. 110-13, illustrating instruments. Leonardo. Hirsch. Kiefer 350. Wellcome III, p. 468. Waller 5658.</p>

        Plate 36 from the Collection of Etruscan, Greek and Roman Antiquities from the Cabinet of the Honorable William Hamilton

      Naples 1766 - William Hamilton Illustrated sheet from Collection of Etruscan, Greek and Roman Antiquities from the Cabinet of the Honorable William Hamilton Naples: 1766-1767 Aquatint engraving in black and terra-cotta ink 24 1/2&#148; x 34 1/2&#148; framed Sir William Hamilton was sent to Naples in 1764 as chief British envoy to the Bourbon King Ferdinand IV. Inspired by the cultural heritage of Italy, Hamilton developed a great passion for archaeology and the study of antiquities, and soon embarked on a project to publish illustrations of the objects that so fascinated him. Ferdinand IV, as official guardian of the treasures of Pompeii and Herculaneum, encouraged the wealthy gentlemen of his kingdom to form private &#147;cabinets&#148; of antiquities. Some of these gentlemen hired their own workmen, while others bought from scavengers and displayed, or resold, a rich harvest of pottery, sculpture, jewelry, metalwork and other artifacts. Hamilton assembled just such a collection, and then chose the finest examples of excavated pottery art for his publication. Other objects came from the Royal Collection, lent generously by the Ferdinand IV. Hamilton was driven in his project by one particular ambition: he wanted to change completely and indelibly the taste of Europe, to &#147;.annihilate those Gothic forms which habit alone renders supportable.&#148; His Collection of Etruscan, Greek and Roman Antiquities had two kinds of illustrations. The most famous are the narrative and pictorial plates, each one with decorative motifs taken from a vase, cup or plate. They exhibit the classical black and terra-cotta color scheme, with touches of accent coloring on some of the plates. The subject matter ranges, as it did on the original ceramic pieces, from activities of the mythical gods and creatures, to feasting and the daily life of ancient peoples. Each image is beautifully detailed and has rich border decorations. Hamilton also provided black and white perspective drawings of the pieces so that artists and craftsmen could follow the ancient forms &#147;with as much truth and precision as if he had the Originals themselves in his possession.&#148; In the end, Hamilton&#146;s acumen and persistence were rewarded. His book became a virtual dictionary of Classical form throughout the l8th and l9th centuries, while his collection became a cornerstone of the British Museum&#146;s Department of Classical Antiquities.

        Rettung des Theaters, oder Zergliederung des Briefes von Herrn Rousseau, Bürger zu Genf, an den Herrn von Alembert, über die Schauspiele, aus dem Französischen des Herrn Marmontel (von Gottfried Ferdinand Lindemann).

      Leipzig, bey Siegfried Lebrecht Crusius, 1766 - Mit einem Titelkupfer (C.L. Crusius fec.) und einem gestochenen Titel. Vortitel, 1 Bl., 125 (recte 152) S., 2 Bll. Marmorierter Lederband der Zeit mit rotem Rückenschild und reicher Rückenvergoldung. Sehr schönes Exemplar der seltenen ersten und einzigen deutschen Ausgabe. - Fromm IV, 16410 (ungenau; nennt Dresden als Druckort). Nicht bei Goedeke. - "Rousseaus 'Lettre à d'Alembert sur les spectacles' (1758) war eine Reaktion auf dessen Artikel über Genf in der 'Encyclopédie'. Rousseau verteidigte in seinem Brief die Genfer Obrigkeit und deren Verbot einer Theatergründung in der Stadt, indem er 'die Bühne als Verderbnis der Sitten' (Safranski) anprangerte. Der Brief hatte Folgen. Zum einen bedeutete er den endgültigen Bruch Rousseaus mit den Enzyclopädisten, den ehemaligen Freuden; zum anderen verschärfte er die Diskussion um die Rolle des Theaters. Marmontels Antwort auf diesen Angriff erschien zuerst 1761 als Anhang zu seinen 'Contes moraux'. 'Das Theater hat zu allen Zeiten seine Feinde gehabt. Auch in Deutschland hat es Milzsüchtige und Heuchler gegeben, die die Bühne als eine Schule der Laster, als eine Verführerinn zu Wollust und Müßiggang verketzert haben. Doch der Beyfall und der Tadel dieser Leute gelten dem Theater gleich viel. Ihre Krankheit ist vorbei, und sie hören auf zu lästern. Allein wenn ein Rousseau mit Scharfsinn und Grundsätzen dasselbe angreift: nur dann muß ein Marmontel aufstehn, und die Ehre der Bühne retten.' (Vorrede des Verlegers)." (Trauzettel Bl. Nr. 1180). - Ecken leicht bestoßen, ein Blatt mit 2 cm. Einriß am Oberrand, etwas gebräunt. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The castle of Otranto, a Gothic story

      printed for William Bathoe in the Strand, M.DCC.LXVI. [1766], London - 8vo: xxiv, 200pp. Beautifully rebound by Fitterer in period style, with chestnut calf spine in six compartments divided by raised bands ruled in gilt, red morocco lettering piece gilt, hand-marbled paper-covered boards, end papers renewed. A Fine binding, text block Near Fine, lightly spotted and moderately browned, first few leaves washed and so whiter then the rest. Hazen, Walpole, p.55. Gordon, Landmarks in English Literature, p. 15. PMM 211. The Third Edition (so stated), published one year after Bathoe&#146;s first. After Bathoe's death, in 1768, the sheets of this edition were taken over by John Murray and reissued with a cancel title page marked Third Edition and dated 1769. (Hazen) "On Christmas Eve 1764, a small book appeared in London with the title: 'The Castle of Otranto, A Story, translated by William Marshall, Gent. From the original Italian of Onuphrio Muralto, Canon of the Church of St. Nicholas at Otranto.' The Preface explained that the book, which had been printed in black letter at Naples in 1529, had been found 'in the library of an ancient catholic family in the north of England'. . . . This much was obfuscation, though of an interesting kind, since the story was actually written by Horace Walpole, the aristocratic son of Sir Robert Walpole, the political superman of the early eighteenth century, and on his own account an antiquary, art historian and letter-writer. When the work was republished a year later it was still anonymous, but some initials to the accompanying sonnet gave away the author's identity. In the Preface to the second edition, in which the explanation 'A Gothic Story' is added to the title page, Walpole . . . explains the story as an attempt to blend the ancient style of romance, where 'all was imagination and improbability,' with the modern style in which 'nature is always intended to be [ ] copied with success.' . . . Overblown, outrageous, cheerfully unstable and in some ways silly as it is, Otranto was hugely innovative and influential, and remains an indispensable document in the history of the gothic and of proto-romantic literature." (The Literary Encyclopedia) "'The Castle of Otranto,' wrote Sir Walter Scott, 'is remarkable not only for the wild interest of the story, but as the first modern attempt to found a tale of amusing fiction upon the basis of the ancient romances of chivalry.' . . . Its influence on Poe is manifest, and it has survived in such novels as Bram Stoker's Dracula and in modern mystery stories and horror films."

Con una gr. tav. xilogr., più volte ripiegata, stampata recto/verso e raff. l'apparecchiatura della tavola con i coperti e menù. Rarissima ediz. orig. del più noto trattato di cucina piemontese, contenente centinaia di dettagliate ricette dove l'innovazione della cucina francese si fonde con la tradizione di quella piemontese. L'opera gettò le basi per un autonomia della cucina piemontese rispetto a quella d'oltralpe: la birra lasciò spazio al vino, il vino bianco secco prese il posto dello champagne, i tartufi neri del Périgord furono sostituiti con i tartufi bianchi, e così via. Un capitolo intero è dedicato a burro e formaggio, in particolare parmigiano, altro a bevande quali caffè, tè e cioccolato. Ampia trattazione viene data a confetture e marmellate.

        THE VICAR OF WAKEFIELD: A TALE SUPPOSED TO BE WRITTEN BY HIMSELF

      Printed by B. Collins, for F. Newbery, Salisbury 1766 - The Extremely Fine Terry-Mills-Benz Copy Of Goldsmith's Masterpiece. 171 x 108 mm (6 3/4 x 4 1/4"). Two volumes, with the terminal blank in volume I. FIRST EDITION, variant B. BEAUTIFUL SCARLET CRUSHED MOROCCO, HEAVILY GILT, BY RIVIERE & SON, covers with French fillet frame, spine with raised bands and handsomely gilt compartments, lovely gilt inner dentelles, all edges gilt. Front pastedown of volume I with the leather book labels of Roderick Terry, [Edgar] Mills, and Doris Louise Benz. Temple Scott, pp. 173-75; Rothschild 1028; Tinker 1110. Lower corner of terminal blank in first volume skillfully renewed, artful repair and faint glue stains at inner margin of B3 in second volume, other isolated trivial defects, but A VERY FINE COPY, THE TEXT NEARLY PRISTINE, AND THE HANDSOME BINDINGS ESPECIALLY BRIGHT. Written in 1761-62 but not published until four years later, "The Vicar of Wakefield" was said to have been rescued from some of Goldsmith's unpublished manuscripts by Dr. Johnson, who thus saved the penniless author from imprisonment by selling it to a publisher for £60. Considered the masterpiece of the middle-class domestic novel, the "Vicar" has never gone out of style because its whimsically delineated characters have a delightful simplicity that somehow insulates them against ultimate misfortune, and the innocent and virtuous are rewarded, as they should be, in the end. This copy has a distinguished provenance, having been owned, in succession, by Roderick Terry (1849-1933), Edgar Mills, and Doris L. Benz (1907-84), all of whom collected beautiful and substantial items chosen with considered discrimination. Terry accumulated items in various fields, but his library was especially strong in English literature: he owned the four folios, and he had strong holdings in Byron, Lamb, Spenser, and Milton. He also collected Americana, assembling a complete set of autographs of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, in addition to many literary items. Dickinson characterizes him as "a connoisseur in the grand old tradition of the 19th century. His library reflected his eclectic tastes and [his] cultivated good judgment." For more on Benz, see item #52. Probably the main reason this volume had such celebrated owners is the beauty of its bindings. Riviere is considered one of the foremost names in English binding partly because the firm did consistently fine work and partly because it was so long in business. Robert Riviere began as a bookseller and binder in Bath in 1829, then set up shop as a binder in London in 1840; in 1881, he took his grandson Percival Calkin into partnership, at which time the firm became known as Riviere & Son, and the bindery continued to do business until 1939. In the early part of the 20th century, an intense rivalry between Riviere and Sangorski & Sutcliffe developed, and collectors have reaped immense dividends ever since in the form of more and more elaborate work that was not infrequently of breathtaking beauty.

Following the death of Hasselquist in Smyrna in 1752, at the early age of 30, his natural collections and arabian manuscripts was acquired by Queen Lovisa Ulrika who incorporated them into her collections at Drottningholm. The present work is one of the first natural descriptions of Palestine and was translated into German in 1766, French in 1768 and Dutch in 1771. According to the preface, the translator of this edition is a "gentleman" who has spent time in Sweden, where he has been a pupil of Linnaeus', and who is not English by birth. In a footnote on page 297 the translator mentions a letter from Linnaeus to John Ellis. It is possible that the translator is Daniel Solander, who lived in London where he was in close contact with Ellis, whose collections he was sorting and cataloguing at the time.
