        John Hancock Faces Retribution for Instigatingthe Boston Tea Party

      - His bankers, a British firm that was involved in sending tea to the American colonies, bounces his checkbecause of the alarming state of trade brought on by the Boston Tea PartyHancock was one of the wealthiest men in New England, having inherited a profitable mercantileshipping business from his uncle. London was the hub of trade, not merely for the mothercountry but the colonies, and he had close ties to England. He lived there for years just prior topassage of the Stamp Act, and his bankers in London were the prominent firm of Hayley andHopkins.It would seem logical for such a man to support the powers that be, and Hancock did so initially.However, after the Sugar and Stamp Acts were passed, the young merchant was impacted by thepublic outrage and fell under the influence of the radical Samuel Adams. Adams became HancockÕsmentor and friend, with Adams always promoting HancockÕs career. When Hancock died,he was Governor of Massachusetts and Adams was his Lieut. Governor. At the funeral, Adamswas so stricken with grief that he was overcome and had to be taken away.HancockÕs name was affixed to virtually all patriot resolutions protesting the Stamp Act, andthe 1767 Townshend Acts, and he was elected to the Massachusetts legislature. Tories, like GovernorThomas Hutchinson, roundly denounced him; then the British seized his ship Liberty andthreatened to prosecute Hancock for smuggling. By 1770, though, Hancock was exhausted withpolitics and felt that his business needed his attention. He took a less active role in public affairsand tended his neglected business, and saw less of Samuel Adams for a while. GovernorHutchinson, who had earlier concluded that HancockÕs Òruling passion was a fondness for popularapplause,Ó began to woo him in the hopes he would swing over to the Tory camp. Hancockhad much to risk by sticking with the patriots. He lived in a regal style; his Back Bay mansionwas unequaled in Boston, and he was a man about town in the finest gold-embroidered clothing.When Adams formed the Boston Committee of Correspondence in November 1772 to advocatecolonial rights, Hancock declined to join.Then came the tea tax, which brought Hancock strongly back into the patriot fold. The Americancolonies were ablaze with opposition, but in London, it seemed business as usual. In fact,HancockÕs bankers, Hayley and Hopkins, were involved in shipping the tea to the colonies,most specifically to Boston, New York and Philadelphia. The resulting Boston Tea Party on thenight of December 16, 1773 was perhaps the seminal event that led to the American Revolution,and though popular lore has Hancock as the lead Indian, more likely he did not physically takepart. However, he approved of the action, and some wouldsay called for the action, reportedly telling the crowd thatevening, ÒLet every man do what is right in his own eyes.ÓBritish firms like Hayley and Hopkins suffered losses inthe tea affair and worried about further business disruptionsdue to conditions in Boston. Conditions that Hancockwas helping create.On March 5, 1774, Hancock made the annual speech commemoratingthe Boston Massacre four years earlier, therebydispelling any doubt about in whose camp he was. Hancockcalled the British troops just about every name in thebook, from ÒvillainousÓ to Òmurderers,Ó in that dramaticoration: ÒThe Town of Boston, ever faithful to the BritishCrown, has been invested by a British fleet, the troops of George the third have crossed theAtlantic, not to engage an enemy, but to assist a band of traitors in trampling on the rights andliberties of his most loyal subjects.Ó News of the Tea Party, and HancockÕs role in it, had arrivedin London; now word of his inflammatory speech speeded there. The British government and itsgreat commercial interests determined that for both Hancock and Boston, this was the last straw.And business being business, part of the anxiety of Hayley and Hopkins was that Hancock owedthem quite a lot of money (almost 11,000 pounds ste [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        [Icelandic Falcon]

      [Nuremberg, 1767. A fine print from one of the greatest Nuremberg natural history books: "Delices Physiques Choisies, ou choix de tout ce que les trois regnes de la nature renferment de plus digne des recherches d'un amateur curieux, pour en former un cabinet choisi de curiositez naturelles."… Knorr was one of the leading proto-geologists of the eighteenth century as well as an excellent engraver, painter and art dealer. Born in Nuremberg, he was initially apprenticed to his father's trade of wood turning, but at the age of eighteen became an engraver of copper-plates for Leonhard Blanc, working with Martin Tyroff on the illustrations for Jacob Scheuchzer's Physica Sacra (1731). This work and his acquaintance with J.A. Beurer, a mineralogist-correspondent of the Royal Society, quickened Knorr's interest in natural history. Further stimulus was provided by the wealthy doctor and polymath Christoph Jakob Trew, owner of a menagerie as well as a wide-ranging natural history collection. Trew gathered around him a highly talented group of artists, engravers and scientists, all of whom contributed to making Nuremberg a centre for the publication of top quality large format natural history books. In this stimulating intellectual atmosphere Knorr went on to publish a number of lavish folio volumes, but the present work is his masterpiece. It is also one of the greatest fruits of this flowering of talent in Nuremberg. It acted as a showcase for the talented artists working in the city (most of whom were patronised by Trew). Beautifully designed and executed, the work includes some of the finest natural history plates ever produced. Cf. BM (NH) II, p.998; cf. Landwehr 97 (Dutch edition); Nissen ZBI 2227 & cf. 2229. Fine hand-coloured engraved plate.

      [Nuremberg 1767 - A fine print from one of the greatest Nuremberg natural history books: "Delices Physiques Choisies, ou choix de tout ce que les trois regnes de la nature renferment de plus digne des recherches d'un amateur curieux, pour en former un cabinet choisi de curiositez naturelles."? Knorr was one of the leading proto-geologists of the eighteenth century as well as an excellent engraver, painter and art dealer. Born in Nuremberg, he was initially apprenticed to his father's trade of wood turning, but at the age of eighteen became an engraver of copper-plates for Leonhard Blanc, working with Martin Tyroff on the illustrations for Jacob Scheuchzer's Physica Sacra (1731). This work and his acquaintance with J.A. Beurer, a mineralogist-correspondent of the Royal Society, quickened Knorr's interest in natural history. Further stimulus was provided by the wealthy doctor and polymath Christoph Jakob Trew, owner of a menagerie as well as a wide-ranging natural history collection. Trew gathered around him a highly talented group of artists, engravers and scientists, all of whom contributed to making Nuremberg a centre for the publication of top quality large format natural history books. In this stimulating intellectual atmosphere Knorr went on to publish a number of lavish folio volumes, but the present work is his masterpiece. It is also one of the greatest fruits of this flowering of talent in Nuremberg. It acted as a showcase for the talented artists working in the city (most of whom were patronised by Trew). Beautifully designed and executed, the work includes some of the finest natural history plates ever produced. Cf. BM (NH) II, p.998; cf. Landwehr 97 (Dutch edition); Nissen ZBI 2227 & cf. 2229. Fine hand-coloured engraved plate.

Contemporary mottled calf, spines with 5 raised bands, richly gilt ornaments, red and green gilt lettered labels, sides with gilt borders and gilt ornaments at corners. A rare complete set together with the text volume, which is an explanation to the plates. This last volume is lacking in most copies. François Alexandre Pierre de Garsault (1691-1778) was a French botanical artist and naturalist. He wrote several works on horses of which 'Le Nouveau Parfait Maréchal' is best known. The plates of the present work are all engraved by Garsault. "Five volumes of engravings were published by Garsault in June 1764, a volume of text in 1765 (Explication abrégée). The two were reissued in 1767 with the above title. Thellung states that 336 species are provided with binary names, but that 282 specific names are uninomial whereas 71 are polynominal. Thellung, however makes a plea to accept the binary names." (Stafleu & Cowan, listing a wrong number of plates 728!, and stating 'Only one copy seen').

      Copenhagen, 15 may 1767. (GEOGRAPHY) Folio. 7-1/2pp. in ink, on rectos and versos of 4 leaves, in a secretarial hand., signed "au nom et sur les memoires du Sieur Schultz" by "C. Klinting". Illustrated with 2 pen-and-ink drawings in the text. Sewn into paper wrapper, with remnant of wax seal. Fine. In half green morocco . Submission to the Royal Academy of Science of Schultz's system of measuring longitude on land and on sea, which the author claims to have preceded the method of Pingré by a year: In 1763 "le Sieur Schultz a publié ses idées par un écrit imprimé en Latin et en Allemand" and hopes for a favorable decision by the Academy to help develop his system "au plus grand bien du genre humain, et à l'avantage de la Géographie." The allusion to "Monsieur Pingré" is to the great French astronomer ALEXANDRE-GUY PINGRE (1711-1796), who was at this time a member of the Académie des Sciences in Paris, and whose reputation as a computer of longitudes was already very widespread

E' la prima traduzione italiana nell'edizione pirata contemporanea a quella di Berna (in realtà Lucca, 1767). «The translation is by Giuliano Merlini, the secretary of Giuseppe Pelli Bencivenni, the author of the notes» [Barucci Carpenter I, 344].
