        Tagebuch einer zween monatlichen Reise: welche in der Absicht die Religion bey den Grenzeinvohnern von Pensilvanien zu befördern, und das Christenthum bey den Indianern

      Frankfurt and Leipzig: J. G. Fleischers Buchhandlung, 1771. 8vo. (7 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches). 157pp. Uncut. Contemporary paper boards, early paper label on spine titled in manuscript. Rare edition of Beatty's journal of his travels among the Delaware Indians: "the first account of Indian towns in southeast Ohio" (Howes). The author was an Irish-born Presbyterian missionary who preached widely in both America and Europe. Beatty was sent to the American frontier in 1766 to report on the condition of the Indian tribes. "The tour of this zealous and intelligent observer to the Indian towns in Pennsylvania and Ohio, lying far beyond the frontiers, was made at a period of great interest in their history. The warriors of the Delaware and Shawnese had ravaged them with the tomahawk and firebrand for twenty years, and the Journal of the missionary is filled with notes of their awful massacres. It is very full and minute in its details of interviews with Indian chiefs, and the various phases of aboriginal life which attracted his attention" (Field). This German edition, i.e. the second edition overall following the 1768 first edition published in London, was unknown to Thomson or Field. We find no record of this edition appearing at auction in the last quarter century. Howes B28; Vail 608; Sabin 4150; Field 102 (London edition); Pilling, Proof Sheets 324 (London edition).

        A Code of Laws for the Island of Jersey

      1771. [Jersey]. [Channel Islands]. A Code of Laws for the Island of Jersey. [St. Helier, s.n.]: 1771. vi, 336, [53] pp. Fold-out table. Octavo (4-1/2" x 7"). Recent period-style calf, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed, marbled edges. Early owner inscription to front free endpaper (R.G. Mourant/ May, 1943). Toning, light foxing in a few places, interior otherwise fresh. * Only edition. With index. Main text in French. Uncommon copy of the first printed code of laws established for the island of Jersey. The contents are digested by topic. Located between the northern coast of France and the southern coast of England, Jersey was originally part of Brittany. The island was eventually annexed to the Duchy of Normandy. When William the Conqueror conquered England in 1066, the Duchy and the kingdom of England were united. It was originally governed by customary law recorded in manuscript compilations. Under the direction of the Committee of Council for the Affairs of Jersey and Guernsey these laws were codified in 1771. OCLC locates 15 copies worldwide. A second edition of this code was issued in 1860. Sweet & Maxwell, A Legal Bibliography of the British Commonwealth 1:586 (5).

        The Life of Benvenuto Cellini, a Florentine Artist. Containing a Variety of Curious and Interesting Particulars...

      London: Printed For T. Davies, in Russell-street, Covent-Garden... MDCCLXXI. [1771]. Two volumes, octavo: 1 leaf, a4, B-Z8, Aa-Kk8; Gg4 incorrectly signed G4), portrait front.; 1 leaf, B-Z8, Aa-Cc8, Dd2, a-b8, c6), Errata; 20.5 cm. Title continues: Relative to Painting, Sculpture And Architecture; And A History of His Own Time. Written By Himself In The Tuscan Language, And Translated From The Original By Thomas Nugent, L.L.D. F.S.A. In Two Volumes. First edition of this translation. First published in Italian in 1728. "Not less characteristic of its splendidly gifted and barbarically untameable author are the two autobiographical memoirs which he composed, beginning them in France in 1558,-- a production of the utmost energy, directness and racy animation, setting forth one of the most singular careers in all the annals of fine art. His amours and hatreds, his passions and delights, his love of the sumptuous and the exquisite in art, his self-applause and self-assertion, running now and again into extravagances which it is impossible to credit, and difficult to set down as strictly conscious falsehoods, make this one of the most singular and fascinating books in existence' -- EB 11th. Bound by Dragonfly in marbled paper boards, leather spines. NUC 101: 42 (NC 0249091). Stock#OB341.

A fine image from Catesby's 'The Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands', "the most famous colour-plate book of American plant and animal life...a fundamental and original work for the study of American species" (Hunt). The mutton snapper is commonly found in the Western Atlantic, between Massachusetts and as far south as Brazil. They are, however, most populous in the Bahamas, Antilles, and southern Florida, and they primarily inhabit coral reefs, continental shelves, and rock bottoms. Trained as a botanist, Catesby travelled to Virginia in 1712 and remained there for seven years, sending back to England collections of plants and seeds. With the encouragement of Sir Hans Sloane and others, Catesby returned to America in 1722 to seek materials for his 'Natural History'; he travelled extensively in Carolina, Georgia, Florida, and the Bahamas, sending back further specimens. His preface provides a lengthy account of the development of this work, including his decision to study with Joseph Goupy in order to learn to etch his plates himself to ensure accuracy and economy. A lovely and important work, embodying the most impressive record made during the colonial period of the natural history of an American colony. The most significant work of American natural history before Audubon's Birds of America. Cf. Anker 95; cf. Clark I:55; cf. Dunthorne 72; cf. Fine Bird Books (1990), p. 86; cf.

        NEW GEOGRAPHICAL AND HISTORICAL GRAMMAR:

      1771. Very Good. SALMON, Thomas A NEW GEOGRAPHICAL AND HISTORICAL GRAMMAR: Wherein the geographical part is truly modern; and the present state of the several kingdoms of the world is so interspersed, as to render the study of geography both entertaining and instructive... Illustrated with a new set of maps of the countries described. The Fourteenth Edition, with very large additions and improvements, brought down to the present times. Edinburgh: Willison and Darling..., 1771. Twenty-four plates, including twenty-two fold-out maps, as called for, and a frontispiece portrait of King George III and Queen Charlotte. Octavo: xii,[2],7-603,[13] pp. In a much worn and heavily scuffed contemporary leather binding with 1/2" loss at crown, a short tear at heel, one joint starting, and a skinned patch on the lower board. Near contemporary ink ownerships on back of frontispiece. The text leaves and maps are age-toned with some intermittent light to moderate foxing. Most maps are crisply folded and have sharp edges. The notable exception is the map of the world which has some loss along one fold (a rectangular patch in the Pacific Ocean), a horizontal tear at the top edge (without loss but the piece is heavily creased), and it is starting at folds. Nonetheless, despite the wear noted above, it is a very good and complete copy of this popular eighteenth-century work which is seldom found intact.
