        The History of the Late War in North-America, and the Islands of the West-Indies

      London: Printed for W. Strahan and T. Cadell, 1772. Large quarto. (11 1/4 x 9 inches). 1p. errata at back. 18 folding engraved maps. Contemporary calf, covers bordered with a gilt double fillet, expertly rebacked to style, spine in six compartments with raised bands, red morocco lettering piece in the second compartment, the others with an overall repeat decoration in gilt The best contemporary account of the French and Indian War, justly celebrated for its cartography and textual content, and one of the great rarities of colonial Americana: complete with all maps and the elusive errata leaf. Virtually all of Mante's account relates to the war in North America, with detailed narratives of Braddock's campaign and the other frontier and Canadian campaigns of the conflict. The work is particularly desirable for its contemporary descriptions of Pontiac's War, a campaign in which the author participated as Major of Brigade to Colonel Dudley Bradstreet. In addition, the introduction includes an interesting account of young George Washington's escape in 1753 from assassination by an Indian who acted as his interpreter and guide. Mante evidently took great care to gather information that was both historically and cartographically accurate for the present work. The maps are praised by all bibliographers as being by far the best relating to the war, and include several seminal maps which are the most accurate produced to that time. They comprise: 1) Fort Beau Sejour, & the adjacent Country Taken Possession of by Colonel Monckton 2) Lake Ontario to the Mouth of the River St. Lawrence 3) [Map of Lake George and vicinity] 4) A Plan of Fort Edward & Its Environs on Hudsons River 5) Communication Between Albany & Oswego 6) Attack on Louisbourg [by Amherst & Boscawen] 7) The Attack of Ticonderoga [by Major General Abercromby] 8) Plan of Fort Pitt or Pittsbourg 9) Guadaloupe 10) Attack on Quebec [by Wolfe & Saunders] 11) A Sketch of the Cherokee Country 12) The River Saint Lawrence from Lake Ontario to the Island of Montreal 13) A Plan of the Attack upon Fort Levi 14) River St. Lawrence from Montreal to the Island of St. Barnaby ... & the Islands of Jeremy 15) A View of the Coast of Martinico Taken by Desire of Rear Adml Rodney 16) Part, of the West Coast, of the Island of Saint Lucia 17) Plan of the Retaking Newfoundland [by Colville & Amherst] 18) Attack of the Havanna [by Albemarle & Pococke] Sabin writes of this great rarity: "Copies with all the maps are scarce. It is probable that but few were printed, though the large and beautiful plans and military maps (which gave it so great a value), must have made its production a work of much expense." Church 1092; Field 1003; Howes M267 "c"; Sabin 44396; Streeter Sale 1031.

        The Frugal Housewife, or Complete Woman Cook: Wherein the art of dressing all sorts of viands, with cleanliness, decency, and elegance, is explained in five hundred approved receipts to which are prefixed various bills of fare, for dinners and suppers in every month of the year; and a copious index to the whole

      Boston: re-printed and sold by Edes and Gill, in Queen Street 1772 - FIRST AMERICAN EDITION. This is the second cookbook printed in America, preceded only by the similarly rare The Compleat Housewife printed in Williamsburg in 1742. Carter’s Frugal Housewife was one of the “enduring classics in the American marketplace, reprinted in American cities into the 1830s” (Snell). Printed from the London edition with alterations, The Frugal Housewife strongly influenced the first cookery book by an American author, Amelia Simmons’s American Cookery (1796). Simmons copied entire passages almost word for word from Carter. This first American edition of The Frugal Housewife, printed without a date, was advertised by Edes & Gill in the Boston Gazette as “this day Published” on 2 March 1772. Edes & Gill are best remembered as the most important printers in Boston during the American Revolution. In 1773, one year after publishing this cookbook, they and their newspaper, the Boston Gazette, played a crucial role in sparking the Boston Tea Party. For this cookbook they turned to another patriot, Paul Revere, famed as a silversmith and engraver. Paul Revere engraved two plates on copper to illustrate this work. Revere referred to his work in his Day Book on January 20, 1772, where he wrote: “Mesr. Edes & Gill Dr. To Engraving a Copper plate for coocrey [sic] Book & 500 prints 2-14-0.” Revere evidently engraved a single plate of copper with both illustrations. A fabulous provenance. This book bears the apparently otherwise unknown book label of Sally Parsons dated 1774. Women’s book labels on American books of this interest and period are of the greatest rarity. VERY RARE. No copy appears in the book auction records of the past 100 years, apart from an example lacking nine leaves including the title. In 1954 Goodspeed’s offered a copy with a portion of the title in facsimile—the only copy we have traced in the trade. Only four research libraries have copies (Library of Congress, Harvard, Brown, and American Antiquarian Society) and The Frugal Housewife is lacking from almost all of the great cookery collections. Seven copies are known worldwide: 1. American Antiquarian Society 2. Harvard 2 leaves short and likely supplied 3. Library of Congress lacking frontispiece plate 4. John Carter Brown frontispiece plate imperfect 5. Ross County Historical Society, Chillicothe, Ohio title-page imperfect 6. Private collection lacking 9 leaves incl. title 7. The present copy 12mo. [12], 166 of 168 pp., final leaf O6 in facsimile. 2 engraved plates. 18th-century sheep. Spine rubbed, front hinge starting at top. Light toning, small tear without loss to title. Generally in excellent condition, a remarkable survival, especially given the subject matter. Provenance: Sally Parsons 1774, with book label reading “The Property of Sally Parsons. 1774.” with decorative border on front paste-down. References: Evans 12348.

      New London: Timothy Green, [1768]-1772. - [4],6,10,375pp. Original suede calf, hinges broken. Folio. Library ink stamp on titlepage; chipping at edges, remnants of contemporary ownership inscription at head of title. Text lightly foxed, contemporary annotations and underlining throughout. Overall good. In a black cloth clamshell box. The Brinley copy, from his famous sale in 1880, of an important volume of early Connecticut laws, printed by one of the premier colonial American printers, Timothy Green. This is the reprint of 1768, after the first edition of 1750, followed by session laws for several years. The first volume of laws for the Connecticut colony was printed in Cambridge in 1673, followed by volumes of acts and laws in 1702 (Boston), 1709, 1715, and 1729 (all New London). The present collection of laws was authorized by the colonial legislature, but was not completed until 1753. This reprint of 1768 bears the original date of imprint on the titlepage, but differs entirely from the 1750-53 original by including a table of ten pages preceding the text. The table in the present copy has been annotated to reflect the session laws which are bound in after the initial body of the text (these are continuously paginated).

        Nature dévoilée (La), ou théorie de la nature, dans laquelle on démontre, par une analyse exacte de ses operations, comment et de quoi toutes choses prennent naissance, comment elles se conservent, se détruisent et se réduisent de nouveau en leur essence primordiale.

      chez Edme, A Paris 1772 - 2 vol. in-12 de (4)-IV-377-(5) pp. ; 304-(1) pp., basane marbrée, dos orné à nerfs, pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin vert, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque). Première édition française du traité d'alchimie allemand Aurea Catena Homeri publié une première fois par Johann Georg Böhme en 1723 et traduit par Dufournel. « Le premier pas que doit faire celui qui désire parvenir à la connaissance de la Nature est d?examiner, avec la plus grande attention, comment et de quoi prennent naissance toutes les choses naturelles, telles que les météores, les animaux, les végétaux et les minéraux ; comment elles se conservent, et comment elles se détruisent. Il verra que ces différents effets s?opèrent par une même cause; que chaque chose contient en soi un principe de vie, qui est aussi celui de sa destruction ; que ce principe est le même dans toutes ; et que c?est cet agent universel, qui, suivant ses différentes manières d?agir, opère toutes les générations et les dissolutions qui entretiennent et renouvellent sans cesse ce vaste univers. C?est ce que je me propose de démontrer dans cet ouvrage, qui est le fruit de mes observations et de mes expériences. Je l?ai écrit particulièrement en faveur des amateurs de la chimie, qui, faute de connaître la marche de la Nature, travaillent au hasard, suivent aveuglément les procédés qu?ils ont devant les yeux, et s?égarent continuellement dans leurs recherches, au détriment de leur santé et de leur fortune. Ils y trouveront une théorie claire, palpable, et qui a l?avantage d?être aisée à vérifier par la pratique, sans laquelle on ne peut se flatter d?être véritablement instruit. Je l?ai divisé en deux parties. Dans la première, j?examine comment et de quoi toutes choses ont pris et prennent naissance. Dans la seconde, comment elles se détruisent ; et j?ai soin d?appuyer tous les raisonnements sur des faits connus ou des expériences faciles. Je préviens qu?on ne trouvera point dans ce traité l?élégance et la pureté du style ; d?autant plus que j?écris dans une langue qui m?est étrangère. Mais dans un ouvrage de la nature de celui-ci, l?on doit considérer les choses, plutôt que la manière dont elles sont exprimées. Je préviens aussi qu?en traitant philosophiquement de la Nature, je n?ai point prétendu m?écarter des vérités révélées, étant persuadé que ma théorie ne pourrait être que fausse, si je n?étais point d?accord avec elles. » (Préface).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Zittau, 14. IV. 1772. - 3 SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt mit Adresse am Gegenblatt verso (Faltbrief). 4to. An Heinrich Christian Boie in Göttingen, Herausgeber des "Göttinger Musenalmanachs": "Ihr liebes Geschenk, Hochzuehrender Herr und Freund, Ihre beyden Musenalmanache für meine Freundin und mich, habe ich am Ende des Februars richtig erhallten, mit Vergnügen und Danck angenommen, und den einen davon meiner Freundin übergeben, die Ihnen gleichfalls den verbindlichsten Danck sagte. Sie sind sehr verbindlich, mein lieber Herr Boie: allein meine Zweifel laßen mich nicht entscheiden ob mein eigener kleiner Beytrag zu dieser Sammlung, unter die beträchtlichen gehört: diesen abgerechnet, ist die Sammlung selbst eines der wichtigsten Geschencke so das Publicum von Ihnen bereits erhallten hat. Ich erstaune über die schönen Stücke die sich hier in Menge finden, und ich freue mich ungemein über die angehängte Nachricht, daß die Stücke, die Sie noch davon in Ihren Händen übrig haben, uns so eine reizende Hoffnung fürs künftige Jahr machen. Könnte ich doch meine liebe Freundin bereden, noch ferner ihrer Seites etwas beyzutragen! - Sie ist freylich meine Freundin, und folglich bin ich nicht ganz auser dem Verdachte der Partheylichkeit: aber dennoch glaube ich mit gutem Gewißen versichern zu können, daß die andern Stücke die ich von ihr kenne, den Werth des erstern nicht vermindern, ja wohl gar übertreffen würden. Vielleicht! Ich werde wenigstens keine Mühe sparen, sie zu überzeugen, daß der Ruhm, eine vorzügliche Dichterin zu seyn, um so viel schöner ist, ie seltner er diesem Geschlechte zu Theil ward. Meinen eignen neuen Beytrag - vornehmlich da Sie es so haben wollen, - erhallten Sie leicht. Ich lege ihn sogleich bey als ein Zeichen meiner Freundschaft gegen den Sammler, und als einen Beweiß von dem Wunsche, daß diese Sammlung recht lange fortgesetzt werden möge. Verhindern es meine barbarischen Arbeiten und andre Umstände nicht, so glaube ich Ihnen auch das Versprechen eines noch fernern Beytrages geben zu können. Ich schlüße mit einer zweyfachen Bitte: erstlich ist mir ja wohl wißend daß Sie selbst mit den Musen vertraut sind; ich vermuthe also auch Stücke von Ihnen im M.A. und ich läugne es nicht, ich möchte schon wißen welche ich dafür hallten sollte.

      Boston, 1772. Modern blue paper wrappers. Contemporary ownership inscription on titlepage, a few small stains. Light toning and soiling. About very good. In a cloth clamshell case, title in gilt. A seminal pamphlet of the gathering storm of revolution. A committee, consisting of Joseph Warren, James Otis, Samuel Adams, Josiah Quincy, and Benjamin Church, met at Faneuil Hall on Nov. 20, 1772, presided over by John Hancock. The "Statement of the Rights of the Colonies" was prepared by Sam Adams, the "Several Violations of those Rights" by Joseph Warren, and Benjamin Church drafted the letter to the other towns. The letter was sent out to the towns, and in one month forty-five of the 250 in the province endorsed it; a week later the number had climbed to eighty. The pamphlet also includes a call for the establishment of Committees of Correspondence.

      London, [Various dates]. 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.

        Acts and Laws of His Majesty's English Colony of Connecticut in New-England in America. [issued with]: The Charter Granted by His Majesty King Charles II to the Governour & Company of the English Colony of Connecticut in New-England in America

      Timothy Green, New London 1772 - [4],6,10,375pp. Original reverse calf, hinges broken. Library ink stamp on titlepage; chipping at edges, remnants of contemporary ownership inscription at head of title. Text lightly foxed, contemporary annotations and underlining throughout. In a black cloth clamshell box The Brinley copy, from his famous sale in 1880, of an important volume of early Connecticut laws, printed by one of the premier colonial American printers, Timothy Green. This is the reprint of 1768, after the first edition of 1750, followed by session laws for several years. The first volume of laws for the Connecticut colony was printed in Cambridge in 1673, followed by volumes of acts and laws in 1702 (Boston), 1709, 1715, and 1729 (all New London). The present collection of laws was authorized by the colonial legislature, but was not completed until 1753. This reprint of 1768 bears the original date of imprint on the titlepage, but differs entirely from the 1750-53 original by including a table of ten pages preceding the text. The table in the present copy has been annotated to reflect the session laws which are bound in after the initial body of the text (these are continuously paginated).

        A Voyage Round the World Performed by Order of His Most Christian Majesty, in the Years 1766, 1767, 1768 & 1769

      London: J. Nourse, 1772. 4to. xxviii, 476 pp. b/w folding plates and charts. First English edition, translated from the French edition of 1771 by John Reinhold Forster (though Hill attributes the translation to his son, Georg). This was the first French expedition to sail around the world, going first to the Falklands, then through the Straits of Magellan to Tahiti and across the Pacific. Culturally, it had enormous importance to the French, inspiring LaPerouse and seeming to validate Rousseau?'s concept of the noble savage. This first English edition, as Hill notes, contains a vocabulary of the language of Tahiti. Sabin 6869. Hill 165. O?'Reilly & Reitmann 285. Five folding charts, 1 folding plate. Text, plates and maps are clean and in very good condition, with only light offsetting from some of the folding maps. Bound in old mottled calf, rebacked, with original spine label. A very nice copy of an important book.

        Fundamenta Entomologiae: or, an introduction to the knowledge of insects being a translation of the Fundamenta Entomologiae of Linnaeus, farther illustrated with Copper Plates and Additions.

William Curtis (1746-1799) is chiefly remembered as the author of two famous botanical books 'Flora Londinensis'' and the 'Botanical Magazine'. Curtis, however, was more than just the author on these 2 works. He studied most branches of natural history. His first work was an entomological treatise 'Instructions for collecting and preserving insects' (1771) which was warmly praised by Sir Joseph Banks. It was followed in 1772 by his 'Fundamenta Entomologiae'.Horn-Schenkling 4241. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Le Temple de Gnide (.) Nouvelle Edition, Avec Figures Gravées par N. Le Mire, des Acad. de Vienne en Autriche et de Rouen, D’après les Deßins de Ch. Eisen. Le Text Gravé par Drouet

      Paris, Le Mire 1772. - Gr.-8°. (3) Bll., 7 Ss., (1) S. (weiß), 104 Ss. + (16) Bll. Mit insgesamt 16 nicht paginierten Kupfertafeln, Frontispiz, Titel und 1 Kopfstück, alle gestochen von Le Mire nach Eisen; der Text durchgehend gestochen von Drouet. Braunes genopptes Maroquin des 19. Jahrhunderts (Vorderdeckel schwach fleckig) mit dreifachen Deckelfileten, breiter Stehkantenbordüre, Rückenvergoldung und goldgeprägtem Rückentitel; Kopfgoldschnitt. Erste Ausgabe mit diesen Illustrationen. Das Prosawerk „Le Temple de Gnide", ein Frühwerk Montesquieus, greift einen mythologischen Stoff auf und stellt ihn unter die Fiktion einer neuen Übersetzung. Der Autor hat den kurzen Text „Céphise" selbst als Anhang zum „Temple" bezeichnet, und so findet er sich auch am Ende unserer Ausgabe. Eisens Illustrationen (neben Frontispiz und Titel je eine zu den 7 Gesängen des „Temple" und 2 zu „Céphise") gelten als seine besten überhaupt (Lewine: "In the plates artist and engraver both appear at their best". Ray: "With regard to suavity and grace Eisen never surpassed these plates". Salomons: "These magnificent illustrations are some of the finest Eisen ever drew"). Lt. Salomon, Cohen / R. und anderen liegen sie in unterschiedlichen Zuständen vor: In unserem Exemplar sind alle im normalen Druck mit Text und Nummern enthalten, und zusätzlich sind die zu den 7 Gesängen des „Temple" im Abzug ohne Text und ohne Nummern eingebunden (daher die Gesamtzahl von 16 Kupfertafeln). Es handelt sich bei letzteren wohl um äußerst seltene Probeabzüge (Lewine: "The unlettered proofs are worth a fancy price, still more so the etchings, which are excessively rare". Salomons: „A few very rare scarce sets of plates before letters exist a complete set may be regarded as unique ") auf anderem (festerem) Papier; außerdem hat man sie – vielleicht um eine bessere Bildwirkung zu erzielen, weil man sie möglicherweise als Einzeldrucke anbieten wollte – mit der unbedruckten Rückseite über eine Leerplatte laufen lassen, so dass ein erhabener Quetschrand entstanden ist; das Kupfer zum ersten Gesang liegt in dem Abzug ohne Text und Nummer zusätzlich in einem sehr frühen Zustand mit einer kleinen Bildabweichung vor, nämlich „before the lowering of the drapery" (Salomons). Die zweite Illustration zur "Céphise" findet sich mit zwei unterschiedlichen Unterschriften; in unserem Exemplar lautet sie: „La chaleur va les faire renaître.". „Suivant Cohen, c’est cette dernière qu’il faut préférer" (Tchémerzine; ähnlich Salomons). Vorderer Spiegel mit eingeklebter Bindermarke („FRANZ"), Vorsatz mit Exlibris. Ein sehr sauberes Exemplar, das so gut wie nicht gebräunt ist und nur ganz wenige etwa stecknadelkopfgroße braune Fleckchen aufweist. 1 Bl. mit kleiner Papierfehlstelle im weißen Rand, die Ss. 46 und 47 mit Abdruck des Lesebändchens im Falz. Salomons S. 138/39; Cohen / R. 726/7; Tchémerzine VIII, 455; Brunet III, 1860; Lewine 367; Ray I, 32; Fürstenberg S. 282/3. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Paris, 1772. Quarto. Half title. Contemporary mottled calf, elaborately gilt with gilt leather label, expertly rebacked with original spine laid down. Three bookplates on the front pastedown. Small ink library stamp on half title and titlepage, an occasional fox mark, short repaired tear to verso of folding plan. Internally clean. Very good, a tall handsome copy, with wide margins. A rare account of a scientific expedition to observe astronomical phenomena in California. Astronomer Jean Chappe d'Auteroche, who had observed the transit of Venus in Siberia in 1761, was sent by the French government to Baja California to observe it again when it reappeared on June 3, 1769. The transit is illustrated in the plate facing p.96. En route to Baja, Chappe d'Auteroche made stops in Vera Cruz, Guadalajara, and San Blas. "A thrilling account of a race against time to reach Lower California before the transit of Venus occurred. After nerve-racking delays, which began in Spain, and narrow escapes from disaster, the goal was reached late in May. Two days after the transit was observed a malignant fever spread through the little group and Chappe d'Auteroche, who nursed the sick and dying, took it himself and died on the first of August. Mr. Cowan is quite incorrect in his note on this book, saying 'this celestial phenomenon was visible only upon the coast of California.' It was in fact visible throughout the western hemisphere and expeditions to observe it were sent to numerous stations. Also Spain not only knew of the expedition, but in the end co-operated in every way to make it a success" - Streeter. Includes a large folding plan of Mexico City. The Volkmann copy, with his bookplate.

      [N.p., but near Trenton], 1772. Folio. Old fold lines. Some light soiling. Very good. In a blue half morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. Document written and signed by John Hart, signer of the Declaration of Independence from New Jersey, detailing the terms of a debt of £42 owed to Achsah Lambert (a woman); it is witnessed and signed by another woman, Elisabeth Smith. John Hart (1714-79) was a New Jersey politician and judge, as well as a Signer. He attended every session of New Jersey's extralegal Provincial Congress, from 1774 to 1776, sat on New Jersey's Committee of Safety, serving as its treasurer. He served as Speaker of the state legislature from 1777 until his death. Achsah Lambert seems to have been a woman of some means who owned several acres in and around Trenton. The bond reads: "Know all men by these presents that I John Hart of the township of Hopewell in the County of Huntsdon and western division of the provence of New Jersey are held and firmly bound unto Achsah Lambert of the township of Notingham in the county of Burlington and povence [sic] aforesaid in the just and full sum of forty two pounds good and lawful money of the said povince [sic] and for the payment thereof to be well and truly paid and done I do hereby find myselfe my heirs, executors and administrators firmly sealed with my seal and dated this sixteenth day of September in the year of oure Lord one thousand seven hundred and sevinty two 1772. The conduct of this obligation is such that if the above bounden John Hart himself, his heirs, executors or administrators shall and do well and truly pay or cause to be paid unto the above named Achsah Lambert or to her certain attorney, her heirs, executors or administrators or assigns the just and full sum of twenty one pounds like money as above mentioned and that on or before the sixteenth day of September next insuring the date hereof together with lawfull interest for the same without any let fraud or delay than this present obligation is to be void but otherwise to stand and remain in full fore power and virtue in the law." On the integral leaf Hart has docketed it with the notation: "John Hart obligations £21-0-0." A later note below his docketing reads: "Mentioned in inventory of the estate, 'Desperate.'" At the top of the leaf, Achsah Lambert has signed the document, noting that on May 24, 1776, she received £5/17/8 from Hart. The next notation below that signs the bond over to Lambert Cadwalader on May 19, 1781, also signed by Achsah Lambert and witnessed by two people (one of them a woman). A further notation reassigns the bond from Cadwalader back to Lambert just a few months later, on Aug. 7, 1781. It is likewise signed by Cadwalader, a prominent New Jersey merchant and representative to both the Continental and U.S. Congress. The note that accompanies the document appears to be in Achsah Lambert's hand. It reads: "This bond was assigned to L. Cadwalader by Miss Achsah Lambert in 1781 in order to prevent its being pd. in Continental money, and re- assigned to her by him in the same year. I believe the money will never be recovered." Hart's estates were ravaged by the British during the Revolution, which may have contributed to his delinquency. An interesting document, signed by more than one colonial New Jersey woman, and two important New Jersey politicians.

      Bristol: printed by S. Farley. 1772 15, [1]pp; 4to. A burn to top margin of pp.6-14, has affected a handful of words on pp. 9-12. BOUND IN: A Broadside dated Bristol, May 16, 1772: The Dying Speech and Confession of Jonathan Britain; his name at end with witnesses, sworn at Bristol 15th Day of May, 1772, Henry Bright, Mayor. Chipped with v. sl. loss of letters at foot, leading edge creased. Apparently issued together, the two works are in orig. sugar paper wrappers; spine worn, rear wrapper creased & holed.ESTC T176402 recording 8 copies, not in the British Library. The broadside is an unrecorded and fragile survival. Britain forged several drafts in Bristol and Reading. As a diversion, he claimed to have been involved in setting fire to the dockyard at Portsmouth (July 1770) and requested a promise of a pardon if he surrendered himself and his accomplices; this was granted by way of an advertisement in the London Gazette. In his 'Dying Speech', Britain declares 'that I know no more about the Fire at Portsmouth, than any other person whatsoever'. Britain also admits following the King but 'I, in Fact, never meant to shoot or hurt the Person of his Majesty...True, I had a loaded pistol in my pocket...' Britain accuses Lord Mansfield of being a traitor and Lord Faulconbridge 'being a Catholic, of harbouring the supposed Parties concerned in Portsmouth Fire.'
