        Charter Granted by His Majesty, King Charles II

      1767 - (RHODE ISLAND). The Charter Granted by His Majesty, King Charles II. To The Governor and Company of The English Colony of Rhode-Island and Providence-Plantations, in New-England, in America. BOUND WITH: Acts and Laws of the English Colony of Rhode-Island and Providence-Plantations, in New-England, in America. Printed and sold by Samuel Hall, Printer to the Honorable General Assembly, 1767. Folio, original marbled wrappers, original stitching as issued. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. $4800.Exceedingly rare 1767 Rhode Island Acts and Laws, one of only 200 copies, printed with the 1663 Royal Charter, in original marbled paper wrappers.With the 1660 restoration of the British monarch, Roger Williams's original 1644 charter was threatened by its lack of a royal seal. In 1663, Charles II granted Rhode Island a new charter, distinctively defining it as a corporate colony, with its governor, council and general assembly chosen by the people. The only other such colony was Connecticut, for elsewhere representatives were chosen by British property owners or royal appointment. As such, many Rhode Island citizens believed their charter required only "voluntary allegiance so long as the King's interest and theirs coincided. When claims of English rights and royal power differed from claims of charter rights, Rhode Islanders insisted that charter rights had equal, not subordinate authority" (McLoughlin, Rhode Island History, 82-3). Further the charter famously granted religious freedom with its statement that "no Person within the said Colony, at any Time hereafter, shall be any wise molested, punished, disquieted, or called in Question, for any Differences in Opinion in Matters of Religion." Also including the colony's reaction to the Stamp Act, laws on indentured servitude and polygamy, and one permitting conscientious objector status during war. The 1719 printing is considered the first compilation. In 1730 the second revision was published, and a third appeared in 1745. This is the "exceedingly rare fourth revision of the Rhode Island Laws, of which only 200 copies were printed" (Benedict 450). With separate title pages for the Charter and Acts and Laws. Without the Table, said to have been published separately, and the extremely rare final leaf on the 1746 Repeal of the Acts of the General Assembly. Benedict 450. Evans 10749. Harvard Law Catalogue II, 459. Sabin 70514. Tower 836. Contemporary owner inscription above title page dated March 22 ,1775. Text generally fresh with light scattered foxing, occasional marginal dampstaining, one leaf (2Z) with expert paper repair, affecting a few letters. A highly desirable, early colonial printing.

Together with the Original Observations and Calculations of the Same?Published by Order of the Commissioners of Longitude. 28, lvi pp. Large 4to. London: W. Richardson & S. Clark, 1767. [bound with]:LE ROY, J[ulien] D[avid]. A Succinct Account of the Attempts of Mess. Harrison and Le Roy, for finding the Longitude at Sea, and of the Proofs made of their works?To which is prefixed, a Summary of the Marquis de Courtanvaut's Voyage, for the Trial of certain Instruments for finding the Longitude at Sea. Done from the French, by a Fellow of the Royal Society. 14, xii, 54pp. Large 4to. London: F. Newbery, 1768. First editions of the first two works and first edition in English of the third; very fine copies from the library of Matthew Boulton, with the modern bookplate. These are important works regarding the invention and perfection of the chronometer, which enabled navigators to determine their correct geographical position at all times. I. While latitude has been ascertainable by relatively simple means, measuring longitude presented considerable challenges. In 1714, the English government offered the enormous prize of 20,000 pounds to be awarded by the Board of Longitude to anyone who developed a reliable means of calculating longitude at sea. "One way of measuring longitude is to compare local solar time with the standard time at the prime meridian. Local time is easily ascertained by observing the sun but only a very accurate clock can register a standard time over long periods. The improvements in horology effected by Christian Huygens and others after him about the mid-seventeenth century promised success with this method. But the practical problems associated with temperature-compensation and so forth remained long intractable, although several rewards for an invention were offered. Finally, John Harrison, a clockmaker with several useful inventions to his credit?perfected a chronometer of the required degree of accuracy, showing a steady rate of gain or loss. Harrison's chronometer not only supplied navigators with a perfect instrument for observing the true geographical position at any moment during their voyage, but also laid the foundation for the compilation of exact charts of the deep seas and the coastal waters of the world?There has possibly been no advance of comparable importance in aids to navigation until the introduction of radar."-Printing & the Mind of Man 208-(describing Harrison's earlier An Account of the Proceedings: 1763). II. As part of the dispute between Harrison and the Board of Longitude, Maskelyne was called upon to test the accuracy of Harrison's marine chronometer. Maskelyne was known to favor the rival method of finding longitude by means of lunar tables and he therefore subjected Harrison's chronometer, which had already performed well on two West Indian voyages, to a series of extreme and unrealistic tests. The tests were intended to fully discredit the watch. The predictably disappointing results were published in the present pamphlet, along with Maskelyne's conclusion that "Mr Harrison's watch cannot be depended upon to keep the longitude within a degree in a West India voyage of six weeks?nevertheless?it is a useful and valuable invention." III. First edition in English of the Exposé succint des Travaux de MM. Harrison et Le Roy (1768). This is a very rare and important contribution to the famous and bitter quarrel involving Pierre Le Roy (1717-85), the most eminent horologist in France of the 18th century, Harrison, and Berthoud. Le Roy made important contributions to the chronometer; he "established the main principles [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Catalogue systématique et raisonné des Curiosités de la Nature et de l'Art, qui composent le Cabinet de M. Davila.

      - Thirty engraved plates (many folding). xxxv, [1], 571 pp.; vi, 656 pp.; vi, 290 pp., 3 p.l., 286, [1] pp. Three vols. 8vo, cont. mottled calf (foot of spine of Vol. III with a bit of wear), triple gilt fillet round sides, spines gilt, a.e.g., red morocco lettering pieces on spines. Paris: Briasson, 1767. First edition, and a very handsome set, of this lavish and detailed catalogue. "In 1767 Romé was employed, on Sage's recommendation, to draw up a catalogue of the curiosities that had been collected by Pedro Francisco Davila, who wished to sell his cabinet of natural history before returning to Peru. The work ran to three volumes, in the second of which Romé, in agreement with Linnaeus, stressed the importance of crystalline form in mineralogical description."-D.S.B., XI, p. 520. During Romé's early years, he found steady employment by preparing at least fourteen other mineralogical catalogues. Davila's enormous collection contained scientific instruments (26 items), medals, prints, sculpture, illuminated MSS., Oriental MSS., and books (402 lots) as well as natural history objects. In the Preface to Vol. I, Davila writes that he hopes to sell the collection en bloc but, if no person comes forward, the collection will be sold at auction beginning 12 November. The second part of the third volume is devoted to the classical bronzes and medals (catalogued by Abbé Grimaud) and the prints and drawings (catalogued by M. Remy). The present set is priced throughout in a contemporary hand; it is the first time I have seen a set so annotated. The prices furnish invaluable information regarding the market of the period. Fine set and very scarce on the market. This is a presentation copy from Davila, inscribed on the first title: "Pour Monsieur Hulin de la part de son tres humble et tres obeissant serviteur Davila." ? Laissus, "Les Cabinets d'Histoire Naturelle" in Taton, ed., Enseignement et diffusion des sciences en France au dix-huitième siècle (1986), p. 668-"le cabinet compte alors parmi les plus riches de France: le catalogue de ce remarquable ensemble emplit trois gros in-8, le premier consacré aux règnes animal et végétal, le second aux minéraux et le troisième aux fossiles." Wilson, The History of Mineral Collecting, p. 209-(erroneously calling for 7 plates only). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

(recto descriptions of scenes, verso description of pantomimes and ballets), 54, [ii] (blank) pp. With attractive woodcut head- and tailpieces. First Edition. Sartori 590. Sonneck p. 49. Alceste, to a libretto by Ranieri de Calzbigi (1714-1795), was first performed in Italian Vienna at the Burgtheater on December 26, 1767. It was first performed in French in Paris at the Académie Royale de Musique on Apri 23, l 1776, to a libretto by Marie François Louis Gand Leblanc Roullet. "The Italian Alceste was the second of Gluck's three so-called reform operas written with Ranieri de' Calzabigi (the others were Orfeo ed Euridice and Paride ed Elena) in which a noble simplicity in the action and the music was intended to replace the complicated plots and florid musical style of opera seria. Although Orfeo was the first, it is Alceste that contains, in the first edition of the score, the famous preface in which Gluck and Calzabigi outlined their principles and ideals... The opera was a great success; according to Calzabigi 60 performances were given in Vienna. It was choreographed not by Angiolini, the choreographer of Orfeo in 1762, but his rival Jean-Georges Noverre, also an influential figure in the early ballet d'action. The principals in the first performance included Antonia Bernasconi (Alcestis), Giuseppe Tibaldi (Admetus), Filippo Laschi (Apollo and the High Priest), Antonio Pilloni (Evander) and Teresa Eberardi (Ismene)."

Sartori 16993. Not in Sonneck. First performed in Vienna at the Kärntnertor Theater on October 18, 1764 to a libretto by Metastasio. "His operatic success in Italy led to his being called to Vienna as ballet composer and successor to Gluck (1763)... Gassmann's music was generally highly regarded by such 18th century musicians as Burney, Gerber and Mozart; his operas were quite popular, receiving performances in places as far apart as Naples, Lisbon, Vienna and Copenhagen."

Containing a practical Course of Management, with Estimates of the Expences and Profit. Illustrated with a Plan of the Farm

      One large folding engraved plate. 56 pp. 8vo, stitched as issued (half-title a little soiled), uncut. London: W. Nicoll, 1767. First edition and quite rare. "In this little pamphlet of 56 pages Young assumed that Clive would spend part of his reputedly tremendous fortune made in India in purchasing land, since 'consequence and importance in this kingdom are more annexed' to land than to money. He urged Clive to purchase a large estate of waste land which should be enclosed, brought into cultivation, and turned into a vast experimental farm for crop rotations, various methods of soil treatment, new crops, and scientific stock breeding. He estimated the initial expense as about 26,000 pounds, but predicted that in time the profits might amount to 2000 pounds a year. But Young also had plenty of plans for spending the profits. To be useful the experiments should be published. The remainder of the profits could well be applied for agricultural premiums, and to send a qualified person on an agricultural tour of Europe, as suggested in that recent publication, the Farmer's Letters. Unfortunately Clive never attempted to discover the ingenious author to appoint him supervisor of the whole scheme, manager of the experiments, editor of the publications, administrator of the premiums, and traveller extraordinary."-Gazley, The Life of Arthur Young, pp. 28-29. A crisp clean copy, uncut as issued, and preserved in a folding cloth box.

        Catalogue des Livres provenans de la Bibliotheque de M L D D L V [Duc de la Vallière]

      disposé et mis en ordre, Avec une Table Alphabetique des Auteurs, par Guill. Franç. de Bure le jeune. liv, [2], 618 pp.; 2 p.l., 400 pp. Two vols. in one. Thick 4to, cont. speckled boards, excellently rebacked in antique calf, gilt, reusing the two red morocco lettering pieces on spine. Paris: G.F. de Bure, 1767. A very rare large paper copy of the extremely uncommon auction catalogue of the first of three sales of duplicates from the library of the duc de la Vallière, who formed by the time of his death in 1780 the most important collection of books of the 18th century. La Vallière, born rich and richer still through several inheritances, began buying in a serious way at the sale of the comte d'Hoym in 1738. For more than forty years, he acquired MSS., books, and entire collections on an enormous scale, buying at every major sale in France (and even in London at the Askew sale in 1775). We know that in one single year - 1774 - La Valliêre bought more than 6000 books. Such a pace of acquisition caused the Duc to have many duplicates and triplicates. This catalogue, which contains 5633 lots, contains duplicate books and MSS. (!). We see that La Valliêre was not above selling unique items: lots 5566-5633 are all precious early French MSS. A fine copy, priced throughout in a contemporary hand. ? Guigard, II, pp. 294-95. Peignot, p. 128. Pollard & Ehrman, pp. 247 & 341 & no. 347. Taylor, Book Catalogues, p. 248-49.

        Catalogue systématique et raisonné des Curiosités de la Nature et de l'Art, qui composent le Cabinet de M. Davila..

      Thirty engraved plates (many folding). xxxv, [1], 571 pp.; vi, 656 pp.; vi, 290 pp., 3 p.l., 286, [1] pp. Three vols. 8vo, cont. mottled calf (foot of spine of Vol. III with a bit of wear), triple gilt fillet round sides, spines gilt, a.e.g., red morocco lettering pieces on spines. Paris: Briasson, 1767. First edition, and a very handsome set, of this lavish and detailed catalogue. "In 1767 Romé was employed, on Sage's recommendation, to draw up a catalogue of the curiosities that had been collected by Pedro Francisco Davila, who wished to sell his cabinet of natural history before returning to Peru. The work ran to three volumes, in the second of which Romé, in agreement with Linnaeus, stressed the importance of crystalline form in mineralogical description."-D.S.B., XI, p. 520. During Romé's early years, he found steady employment by preparing at least fourteen other mineralogical catalogues. Davila's enormous collection contained scientific instruments (26 items), medals, prints, sculpture, illuminated MSS., Oriental MSS., and books (402 lots) as well as natural history objects. In the Preface to Vol. I, Davila writes that he hopes to sell the collection en bloc but, if no person comes forward, the collection will be sold at auction beginning 12 November. The second part of the third volume is devoted to the classical bronzes and medals (catalogued by Abbé Grimaud) and the prints and drawings (catalogued by M. Remy). The present set is priced throughout in a contemporary hand; it is the first time I have seen a set so annotated. The prices furnish invaluable information regarding the market of the period. Fine set and very scarce on the market. This is a presentation copy from Davila, inscribed on the first title: "Pour Monsieur Hulin de la part de son tres humble et tres obeissant serviteur Davila." ? Laissus, "Les Cabinets d'Histoire Naturelle" in Taton, ed., Enseignement et diffusion des sciences en France au dix-huitième siècle (1986), p. 668-"le cabinet compte alors parmi les plus riches de France: le catalogue de ce remarquable ensemble emplit trois gros in-8, le premier consacré aux règnes animal et végétal, le second aux minéraux et le troisième aux fossiles." Wilson, The History of Mineral Collecting, p. 209-(erroneously calling for 7 plates only).

Nourse & Mess. Mount & Page, 1767. [bound with]:MASKELYNE, Nevil. An Account of the Going of Mr. John Harrison's Watch, at the Royal Observatory, from May 6th, 1766 to March 4th, 1767. Together with the Original Observations and Calculations of the Same…Published by Order of the Commissioners of Longitude. 28, lvi pp. Large 4to. London: W. Richardson & S. Clark, 1767. [bound with]:LE ROY, J[ulien] D[avid]. A Succinct Account of the Attempts of Mess. Harrison and Le Roy, for finding the Longitude at Sea, and of the Proofs made of their works…To which is prefixed, a Summary of the Marquis de Courtanvaut's Voyage, for the Trial of certain Instruments for finding the Longitude at Sea. Done from the French, by a Fellow of the Royal Society. 14, xii, 54pp. Large 4to. London: F. Newbery, 1768. First editions of the first two works and first edition in English of the third; very fine copies from the library of Matthew Boulton, with the modern bookplate. These are important works regarding the invention and perfection of the chronometer, which enabled navigators to determine their correct geographical position at all times. I. While latitude has been ascertainable by relatively simple means, measuring longitude presented considerable challenges. In 1714, the English government offered the enormous prize of 20,000 pounds to be awarded by the Board of Longitude to anyone who developed a reliable means of calculating longitude at sea. "One way of measuring longitude is to compare local solar time with the standard time at the prime meridian. Local time is easily ascertained by observing the sun but only a very accurate clock can register a standard time over long periods. The improvements in horology effected by Christian Huygens and others after him about the mid-seventeenth century promised success with this method. But the practical problems associated with temperature-compensation and so forth remained long intractable, although several rewards for an invention were offered. Finally, John Harrison, a clockmaker with several useful inventions to his credit…perfected a chronometer of the required degree of accuracy, showing a steady rate of gain or loss. Harrison's chronometer not only supplied navigators with a perfect instrument for observing the true geographical position at any moment during their voyage, but also laid the foundation for the compilation of exact charts of the deep seas and the coastal waters of the world…There has possibly been no advance of comparable importance in aids to navigation until the introduction of radar."-Printing & the Mind of Man 208-(describing Harrison's earlier An Account of the Proceedings: 1763). II. As part of the dispute between Harrison and the Board of Longitude, Maskelyne was called upon to test the accuracy of Harrison's marine chronometer. Maskelyne was known to favor the rival method of finding longitude by means of lunar tables and he therefore subjected Harrison's chronometer, which had already performed well on two West Indian voyages, to a series of extreme and unrealistic tests. The tests were intended to fully discredit the watch. The predictably disappointing results were published in the present pamphlet, along with Maskelyne's conclusion that "Mr Harrison's watch cannot be depended upon to keep the longitude within a degree in a West India voyage of six weeks…nevertheless…it is a useful and valuable invention." III. First edition in English of the Exposé succint des Travaux de MM. Harrison et Le Roy (1768). This is a very rare and important contribution to the famous and bitter quarrel involving Pierre Le Roy (1717-85), the most eminent horologist in France of the 18th century, Harrison, and Berthoud. Le Roy made important contributions to the chronometer; he "established the main principles of the modern chronometer, to wit, a detached escapement, temperature compensation in the balance, and an isochronous balance spring."-Catherine Cardinal, "Ferdinand Berthoud and Pierre Le Roy…" in The Quest for Longitude (Ed. by William J.H. Andrewes), 1996, p. 292. The present work was written by Le Roy, using his father's name for this edition, in answer to Harrison's Principles (see item I). Le Roy illustrates the originality and priority of his own work, dating from before 1754, in comparison with Harrison's. While recognizing the merit of Harrison's chronometer, he considered his own to be superior. The condescension expressed here by Le Roy provoked a series of violently critical responses, both in England and in France. Le Roy also provides an account of the trial of his Nos. 1 and 2 on the Aurore under the Marquis de Courtanvaux in 1767. This is an extremely rare book. Fine copies, attractively bound together, and preserved in a box. Loosely inserted is a page of manuscript notes in ink by a contemporary reader about Harrison's time-keeper. ? I. Horblit 42b. II. Baillie, Clocks and Watches. An Historical Bibliography, p. 271. III. Baillie, ibid., pp. 276-77-(describing the original French edition). See also the note to Printing & the Mind of Man 208 for a discussion of the claims of Le Roy to priority in the invention of the chronometer.

        Document signé (1800) / En-tête de l'Armée d'Egypte

      - TALLIEN Jean-Lambert (1767-1820). Révolutionnaire français, chef de la réaction thermidorienne. Pièce signée avec apostille autographe, cosignée par Martin-Roch Xavier Estève (1772-1853), Le Caire, 16 nivôse an VIII (6 janvier 1800) et Paris 1er prairial an IX (21 mai 1801), 1 page in-folio, en partie imprimée à en-tête Armée d’Egypte. Estève, payeur général de l’Armée d’Egypte, reconnaît le versement fait dans sa caisse par le citoyen Tallien « administrateur des droits de l’enregistrement », de 2.462 livres 14 sols 2 deniers, qui devra lui être comptée par la Trésorerie nationale de Paris. Tallien donne quittance à Paris de « la somme de deux mille quatre cent soixante-deux livres quatorze sous deux deniers. Avec l’instauration du Directoire, l’influence politique de Tallien décline, bien qu’il siège au Conseil des Cinq-Cents. Discrédité aux yeux des Montagnards, qui le considèrent comme un renégat, comme de la droite, qui lui reproche son passé terroriste, il est également abandonné par Madame Tallien, qui devient la maîtresse du financier Ouvrard. Cependant, il est présenté par Paul Barras au général Bonaparte qui l’emmène avec lui dans son expédition vers l’Égypte en juin 1798. Après la prise du Caire, il édite le Journal officiel, la Décade égyptienne.
