        [WEST FLORIDA BRITISH LAND GRANT, SIGNED BY FLORIDA TERRITORIAL GOVERNOR PETER CHESTER]

      [Savannah or Jamaica? ca. 1772].. Broadside, 7 1/4 x 9 1/2 inches, completed in manuscript, tipped to card stock. Chipped at edges, closed tear along one fold, none affecting text. Good. A West Florida land grant signed by Peter Chester, British governor of the territory, deeding 1350 acres to Thomas Boyd, a captain in the British Army. The document is dated Sept. 1, 1772. This grant is undoubtedly the product of the Proclamation of 1763, which enabled liberal land grants to British officers who served in the French and Indian War. A group of similar land grants appeared in the Streeter sale accompanied by a note from Streeter asserting that, based on their curious watermarks, they were samples from the earliest Florida press. Servies, in the seminal A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF FLORIDA, later wrote: "However, no evidence of a press in West Florida prior to 1821 has come to light. These and other administrative forms in use in the colony may have been printed in New York, Philadelphia, or Jamaica." That being said, a case for Savannah might also be made. When the British acquired Florida in the settlement of the French and Indian War in 1763, Savannah was the closest British press to the new land. Given that the grant was probably executed in Pensacola or Mobile, it is very possible the documents were printed in Savannah, perhaps even from the press of James Johnston, the first Georgia printer. A most interesting West Florida document. STREETER SALE 1187 (ref). SERVIES 543 (ref).

        MANOSCRITTO recante il titolo "Catalogo di num.375 impronte in solfo estratte dal Museo di Cristiano Denh, continente 3000 e più varj sogetti".

      XVIII sec., S.l.n.d., - manoscritto cartaceo in-4 (mm. 310x200), 9 ccnn, custodia mod. in cart. dec. Manoscritto in chiara grafia settecentesca, con la descrizione dei prodotti ordinato in funzione dei vari personaggi riprodotti sul "solfo" e suddivisi in "scatole". Le riproduzioni sono in corniola, in cameo, in diaspro, in vetro, agata, calcedonia, ametista, etc. Al fine una importante nota del redattore del manoscritto riferisce: "Si fanno da noi Francesco M. Dolce e Faustina Denh coniugi in Roma, e possessori del suddetto Museo Dehn. Si notifica agli amanti di tali lavori, che chi desiderasse fare aquisto della collezione dei sommi Pontefici da S. Pietro fino al felice regnante Pio VI, e la collezione dei medaglioni chiamati Maximi Moduli estratti dal Museo Vaticano, et altri musei rappresentanti gli Imperatori antichi, questi si lavorano di una composizione come se fossero vere medaglie, con la loro patina antica, e a due facciate cioè dritto e rovescio. Potrà dunque fare ricapito dalli sudd. lavoratori, che abitano nelle case nuove dè Padri Trinatarij a strada Condotti in Roma". Gli autori citati al fine sono gli stessi che pubblicarono in Roma nel 1772 l'opera in 3 voll. dal titolo "Descrizione istorica del Museo di Cristiano Dehn.". La prima pagina con il titolo è parzialmente mutila, ma lo stesso viene riportato a c.2. [252]

        Les règles de la bienséance et de la civilité chrétienne, divisées en deux parties

      Metz: Jeean-Baptiste Collignon, Imprimeur de Son Excellence Monseigneur l'Évêque, 1772 - Rare Metz edition of this classic French courtesy book by La Salle (1651- 1719). Reprinted innumerable times since its first appearance in 1702, it was a standard of the genre well into the 19th century. La Salle's book aimed at teaching children the elements of civility and courtesy, not simply as social ornaments, but as specifically Christian virtues. This rare edition from Metz, except for the preliminaries, is entirely set in "civilité" type - a font first designed and cut by Granjon in the 16th century in Antwerp. Based on French handwriting on the day, it received its name from its use in Erasmus's CIVILITE PUERILE in 1559, and was thereafter frequently used in courtesy books. There are no copies in American or British institutions, and OCLC locates only one copy in Europe (Switzerland) "Sixième édition, revue & corrigée". 8vo. [16], 255 pp. Contemporary paper boards, last few leaaves dog-eared, lower corners of a few leaves stained, final few leaves dog-eared, very good. OCLC: 718557211 (one location; none in US); cf.

        THE ANNUAL REGISTER, OR A VIEW OF THE HISTORY, POLITICS, AND LITERATURE, FOR THE YEAR 1758 [through 1805]

      London. [Various dates].. Forty-eight volumes bound in forty-seven. Uniformly bound in contemporary tree calf, spines gilt, leather labels. Uniform small stain on spines; head of spine lightly chipped on a few volumes. A few cracked or tender hinges, but overall very solid. Volume from 1772 rebacked to matching style. Contemporary library bookplate in each volume (excepting the last six volumes and the volume for 1772). Light foxing and toning, heavier in a few volumes. Some slight worming to a handful of volumes, primarily in margins and not affecting text. Overall, a handsome, very good set in contemporary, uniform bindings. An extensive run of this vast compendium of British politics, life, and lore, from its first issue in 1758 through 1805. The REGISTER, which was created by Edmund Burke (1729-97) and edited by him through 1765, was conceived to be a contemporary history of current events; the first volume opens with a "History of the Present [i.e. French and Indian] War." Subsequent issues contain important accounts of the American Revolution and other momentous world events. Published continuously to the present day, the publication's website has this to say: "[THE ANNUAL REGISTER] is a primary source text for historical research and (for the recent and current annuals) a current affairs reference work. From world politics to society weddings, from the latest scientific discoveries to the weather, from the year's best-selling novels to obituaries of authors and other public figures - THE ANNUAL REGISTER provides detailed historical background and a wealth of new information for research." This copy, which is primarily comprised of various later editions of each volume, has the bookplate of the Georgetown, South Carolina Library Society in the front of each volume, with a manuscript date of December 10, 1807. As a library copy, it was certainly used by both the learned and general populace of the area, and is interesting evidence of book ownership and availability in the South in the Federal period. An essential work for anyone interested in the politics and current events of the time. The 1776 volume contains one of the earliest English printings of the Declaration of Independence. MATYAS, DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE 77-01. GEPHART 2565. SABIN 1614.

      Per Gio. Battista Stecchi, e Ant. Giuseppe Pagani,, Firenze, 1772 - In-8° (220x150mm), pp. (4), LXVIII, 204, (2) di indice, (1) di errata, legatura posteriore m. pergamena con titolo calligrafato al dorso. Diffusi aloni al margine interno dell'intero volume, peraltro non intaccanti il testo. Annotazione con commento relativo alle testi dell'opera manoscritta da mano ottocentesca alla carta finale bianca. Edizione originale, rara. Il volume, seguito del precedente trattato del 1769, sostiene la necessità di liberalizzare il commercio nella Toscana leopoldina, mantenendosi però nel contempo favorevole alle vecchie leggi suntuarie. Esso fu incluso dal Custodi nel ventesimo volume della parte moderna dei suoi "Scrittori classici italiani di economia politica". Marx dedica a questo libro un intero paragrafo nel capitolo sui Fisiocrati delle Teorie sul plusvalore. Il Paoletti (Croce, Bagno a Ripoli, Firenze, 1717-Villamagna, Bagno a Ripoli, 1801), pievano di San Donnino a Villa Magno, presso Firenze, e professore nel seminario di San Miniato, fu altresì agronomo e acuto trattatista di materie agricole. La sua azienda agricola assunse notorietà europea anche grazie alla descrizione che ne fece Arthur Young, elogiandone i metodi innovativi. Einaudi, 4287. Lastri, p. 97. Higgs, 5639.

      London - J. Dodsley, 1772 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Two volumes bound in full leather with gilt titles to the spines, and engravings to the title pages. Torquato Tasso (1544 1595) was an Italian poet of the 16th century, best known for his poem La Gerusalemme liberata (Jerusalem Delivered) (1580), in which he depicts a highly imaginative version of the combats between Christians and Muslims at the end of the First Crusade, during the siege of Jerusalem. John Hoole (1727 1803), was a translator, born in London, and was principal auditor in the India House (1744-83). He translated Torquato Tasso's Jerusalem Delivered (1763), and Ariosto's Orlando Furioso (1773-83), as well as other works from the Italian. He is described by Sir Walter Scott as a noble transmuter of gold into lead. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm. There is some wear to the extremities including rubbing and a couple of small ink stains to the boards. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright with the occasional handling mark. There is an ink inscription to the front blank endpaper of Volume I. Overall the volumes are in very good condition..
