        Holograph Document Signed ("Thomas Knolton")

      Ashford, Windham County, Connecticut. 1769. Bifolium. Approximately 8" x 12". Laid paper with applied paper seal. Old folds, light stain at horizontal fold, very good. Signed on the final page by a number of people including Thomas Knolton (later known as Thomas Knowlton).The 1769 document records a Sheriff's Jury or committee from Windham County in Connecticut impaneled to determine the route of a new highway and to determine if any landholders be compensated for damages as a result. The document enumerates the members of the jury - first men of Windham, and then several men, including Knowlton, "...all of Ashford, as a jury to lay out the within mentioned highway." Much of the document is taken up with the physical details of the highway, but concludes that the jury has determined "...that the Advantage, to each Man's Land (through which this High Way is laid out) is equal to the Disadvantage, therefore assess no Damages." Following the text, Signed by all in the Jury, ending with Knowlton. Although not directly related to the coming War, among the other signers of this document are Sampson Keyes, whose son John served in the Knowlton Rangers as a Lieutenant; Nathaniel Webb, who served as an Lieutenant under Knowlton in Durkee's Regiment (before the Rangers were detached from it); Hezikiah Huntington, who made and repaired firearms for the American troops, and others easily traceable to the Revolutionary cause.Knowlton was a veteran of the French and Indian War who participated in several battles including the Battle of Ft. Ticonderoga and the British invasion of Havana, and who resided in Ashford in Windham County, where he was named a Selectman of the town in 1773. When news of Lexington reached Knowlton he joined his local militia, the Ashford Company, as part of the Fifth Regiment Connecticut Militia. Knowlton was unanimously chosen as Captain. For his bravery at the Battle of Bunker Hill he was promoted by Congress to Major.During the Siege of Boston in 1776, Knowlton was sent by Washington to burn the remaining buildings at the base of Bunker Hill, and to capture the British guard. Knowlton accomplished this mission without firing a shot or losing a man. In August, Knowlton was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel and put in command of an elite hand picked independent corps which was under the direct command of Washington. This unit was the first unit to be designated as "Rangers", or "Knowlton's Rangers." Among the members of the unit was Captain Nathan Hale. This was considered the first organized American intelligence unit and was utilized by Washington to scout the enemy's position in dangerous circumstances. Knowlton is generally considered the first American intelligence officer. The date "1776" on the modern U.S. Army's intelligence service seal refers to the formation of Knowlton's Rangers.On September 16, 1776 Knowlton's Rangers were scouting in advance of the main army at Harlem Heights, New York when a skirmish began which ended with Knowlton being mortally wounded, by all accounts bravely leading the Rangers. He was lamented by Washington in his general orders for September 17, 1776 with the statement "The gallant and brave Col Knowlton, ... would have been an Honor to any Country, having fallen yesterday, while gloriously fighting ..."In 1995 the Military Intelligence Corps Association established the Thomas W. Knowlton Award recognizing individuals who have contributed significantly to the promotion of Army Military Intelligence in ways that stand out in the eyes of the recipients, their superiors, subordinates and peers.Knowlton's signature is rare. We could find none at auction, and none in the trade. .

Author "Vicente Dubois Lardizabal (1746-1814) was a Spanish doctor who was born & died in San Sebastian. It is unknown where he studied medicine, however his youthful education allowed him to meet with Latin & French sufficiency, & throughout his life used the title of Doctor of Medicine. He began to practice in his hometown before 1769. In 1772 he became a doctor in the Real Compania Guipuzcoana de Caracas (The Royal Guipuzcoan Company of Caracas), but he never embarked. His first published work was Consideraciones Politico-Medicas Sobre la Salud de los Navegantes (1769). It was intended for sugeons who were shipped, & relies on a combination of the doctrines of Hermann Boerhaave & Andres Piquer, with the experience provided by physicians such as James Lind, Louis Rouppe, & Richard Mead, who was especially proficient in naval medicine. Three problems of health aboard ships concerned Lardizabal: ventilation (the proposed solutions show a good understanding of the physics of gases), the preservation of drinking water, & the abuse of drugs, especially purgatives." The Royal Guipuzcoan Company of Caracas was a Spanish Basque trading company in the 18th century, operating from 1728 to 1785, which had a monopoly on Venezuelan trade. Laid paper.

This friendship album kept by the travelling student Mihály Pap contains mainly Latin, Greek, Hebrew, and German entries, beginning in 1765 with numerous contributions from Swiss cities (Bern, Lausanne, Zurich); in the later 1760s, he collects entries mainly from German cities (Worms, Regensburg, Nuremberg, Marburg, Duisburg, etc.) as well as from London and Oxford. Somewhat curiously, although the album contains several entries from Göttingen, there is no contribution by the historian August Ludwig von Schlözer, the unrivalled star teacher for the many Hungarian exiles educated at the Georg August University. - Somewhat browned and wrinkled; some pages with slight edge defects.

Oxidationsschatten durch beigelegtes Blatt eines Kataloges, St. a. V., Ebd. berieben u. fleckig, hds. Notiz des Autoren a. T., leicht fleckig, angestaubt, leichte Gbrsp. - Rétif de la Bretonne, [auch Restif de la Bretonne] (1734 - 1806), wurde 1734 in Sacy bei Auxerre als Sohn eines wohlhabenen Bauern geboren. Rétif de la Bretonne war seit seinem 15. Lebensjahr gelernter Drucker und wurde Autor von etwa 200 Büchern, die zum Teil noch nicht wissenschaftlich ausgewertet worden sind. Er verfasste Sittenromane und Sozialutopien und schrieb zuletzt, um Zeit zu sparen, direkt in den Setzkasten. Rétif de la Bretonne gilt oft als bloßer Pornograf. Tatsächlich hat er aber eine Ergänzung zu Sade`s Bild der Aristokratie in seinen freizügigen Schilderungen der niederen Stände geliefert. De Sade war ein Kontrahent Rétifs. Seine sexuelle Fixierung auf Schuhe, geschildert in dem Roman „Le Pied de Fanchette“, führte zu der Bezeichnung Retifismus für diese Art von Fetischismus. Zu seinen skurrilsten Einfällen gehört die Idee, per Gesetz die Verheiratung aller 16-jährigen Männer mit 32-jährigen Frauen zu gebieten. Nach 16 Jahren sollten diese Ehen automatisch geschieden werden, um dann wiederum eine jüngere zu heiraten. Vergleichbare Ideen hat auch Arthur Schopenhauer geäußert. Als Schilderer der Sitten der französischen Revolutionszeit hat ihn Iwan Bloch gewürdigt. Retif konnte sich rühmen jenseits des Rheins der meistgelesene (französische) Autor zu sein.

        Descrizione delle Feste celebrate in Parma l'anno MDCCLXIX per le auguste Nozze di Sua Altezza Reale l'Infante Don Ferdinando colla Reale Arciduchessa Maria Amalia.

      Parma, nella Stamperia Reale (di G.B.Bodoni), (1769), - in-folio imperiale (mm 535x430), f. (5, il primo f. bianco), pp. 76 di testo italiano e francese su due colonne (caratteri tondi e corsivi di corpo e spaziatura diversa), 36 ff. di tavole f.t., 1 f. bianco. Antiporta inc. in rame disegnata da Petitot e incisa da Volpato, frontespizio, realizzato dai medesimi artisti, con grande vignetta alle armi Borbone fiancheggiate dai leoni di Spagna, 5 testate, 8 capilettera e 19 finalini inc.; 36 tavole fuori testo incise in rame di cui 6 a doppia pagina. Legatura 800esca in mezza pelle e angoli, carta decorata ai piatti, titolo oro al dorso. Grandiosa pubblicazione voluta dalla Corte Ducale di Parma con la descrizione dei principali spettacoli allestiti per le nozze tra Ferdinando duca di Borbone e Amalia d'Asburgo, sorella dell'imperatore (''Descrizione degli abiti'', ''Nomi delle Nobil Persone impegnate nel torneo'', ''Le Pastorelle d'Arcadia, festa campestre'', ''Relazione'', ''Fiera Chinese''). Brooks segnala che ne furono tirate 2 edizioni, ciascuna di 400 copie, che però non risultano in vendita nei cataloghi del Bodoni, perché l'opera fu ben presto esaurita. L'imponente apparato decorativo fu affidato a Eurimond Alexandre Petitot, architetto e disegnatore nato a Lione nel 1727 ed ormai all'apice della sua carriera di architetto di corte, in collaborazione con il giovane Bodoni, solo da un anno in città come nuovo direttore della Stamperia Reale, e quindi all'esordio della sua gloriosa attività. Le Feste sono la seconda opera in cui i due collaborano e Petitot vi figura non solo quale inventore e realizzatore dei complessi progetti architettonici, ma anche come scenografo, costumista e decoratore, avendo fornito i disegni delle molte illustrazioni dell'opera, magistralmente rese da Benigno Bossi, principale riproduttore all'acquaforte, da Volpato, Patrini e altri. L'eco delle feste e della loro pubblicazione fu molto vasto. Jean Pierre Mariette si stupiva ''à voir sortir d'une imprimerie naissante un livre si parfaitement exécuté dans toutes ses parties.un chef-d'oeuvre''. Maria Antonietta confessava alla sorella Maria Amalia di aver spesso sfogliato il ''beau livre'' per ritrovarsi con lei. Stupendo esemplare della prima tiratura, nitidamente impresso su carta assai pesante. Brooks 6 e tavole I, III, V: ''Forse il più attraente di tutti i libri di Bodoni per la bellezza delle figure''. Ruggeri 859. Giani, p. 1-3: ''molte copie distrutte da varie circostanze e soprattutto deturpate dagli amatori di stampe.''. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Korte en eenvoudige handleyding tot het leeren van 't clavecimbel of orgel-spel. Tweede druk.Gouda, Johannes vander Klos, 1768. 4to. With an etching showing types of musical notes in text and a folding etched plate showing several aspects of staff notation. Modern cloth.

      [Advertisement] in: Opregte Haerlemse courant, 27 (1769), p. [2]; Boers, "Bouwstoffen tot eene Nederlandsche muzikale litteratuur", in: Caecilia VI, 2 (1849), p. 15; STCN (2 copies). Very rare second and enlarged edition of an introduction in learning to play keyboard instruments. In the preface, the author writes that the first edition of the treatise was highly praised and quickly sold out. As this necessitated a second edition, he used the occasion to add "everything which came to my mind while instructing [from the book]" (*2r) and include an engraved plate. In this "short and simple manual" the author gives the basics of musical staff notation and of playing basso continuo. Over the next 50 years, the book went through numerous editions but at the time proved to be too complicated for beginners. Therefore, Hess wrote a simplified edition of the book, containing more explanations and an extra illustration, which was published in 1808. No copies of the first edition of the Korte en eenvoudige handleyding could be located, nor could they be identified in any source (cf. Boers).Joachim Hess (1732-1819) was an organist and writer, who wrote several treatises on organs and organ playing. For almost sixty years he played the Moreau organ in the Sint-Janskerk in Gouda, which was changed according to his specifications. In his publications he gives great knowledge of all matters related to the organ and he was famous throughout the Netherlands for both his writing and his playing.With the title-page and the inner part and outer margin of the folding plate browned where they touch the endpapers; a good copy.
