        [Manuscript]: Day Book (Fishkill, New York): April 27, 1775 - September 7, 1776

      [Fishkill, New York]. (1775-1777). Manuscript Day Book (Ledger "E"). Tall folio, measuring 8" x 19.75". Contemporary full unpolished calf, tooled in blind and black, raised bands. Lacking a few manuscript leaves at the front (and two blank leaves at the rear); the first two manuscript leaves are detached and toned at the fore-edge, very good. An exceptional Colonial-era single entry account book of daily transactions, recording the accounts of about 150 leading residents of "the Fishkills" (about sixty miles north of Manhattan) in the Rombout precinct of Dutchess County, New York.The individually numbered accounts are written in columns on pages consecutively numbered 33-275, covering the period from April 27, 1775 - September 7, 1776 (and ending with three transactions from March 19 - April 5, 1777; the remaining 21 pages are blank.) The interruption between September 1776 and March 1777 was likely due to the American Revolutionary War, in which the town of Fishkill played an important part: a majority of the town's deputies and militia officers (whose transactions are duly noted in this ledger), were among the first in the New York provincial congress to sign the 1775 Revolutionary Pledge (affirming their loyalty to the Continental Congress), and the town became the main supply depot for the northern division of the Continental Army.The ledger documents goods received and sold, each person identified thus as Debtor or Creditor, with the goods itemized (by weight or volume) and cost, and with associated financial information, including cash payments, advances, etc. The most popular goods are alcoholic: wine, rum, brandy and other spirits in gallons and drams; followed by all manner of textiles: yard broad cloth, cotton, linen, silk, buttons, etc. Among the prominent names are the transactions with numerous members of the Brinckerhoff and Griffin families, many of whom were militia officers or political deputies who signed the 1775 Revolutionary Pledge. Also included are many other prominent persons (and families) who did not sign the Pledge (known formally as "the Association" promulgated in May). These include the Captains of two militia companies: Joseph Horton and Matthias Lyster.An interesting and pleasing artifact, and a scarce primary resource that provides an economic and social history of the area's Dutch, English, and German residents at the beginning of the American Revolution. .

        Three clocks and three candlesticks

      Rome 1775 - John Wilton-Ely 877The watermark that is present is the double circle fleur-de-lis numbered 43 in John Wilton-Ely on page 1164 and is dated from the mid 1770s to 1790sThis plate is from the series "Diverse Maniere d'adornare I cammini ed ogni altra parte degli edifizi desunte dall' architettura Egizia?" (John Wilton-Ely)Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruins with Callot-like figures, and "like Callot makes great use of the swelling line" (Hind). He had two sons and a daughter, all of whom helped him in his work and after his death carried on his publications in Rome and Paris. They were Francesco (born 1748 or 1756; died 1810), Pietro (who lived till after 1807) and Laura (born 1750). His position in Rome and in Europe after 1760 was a prominent one. He was well-known figure to the wealthy English visitors in Rome and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1757. Most of his life was passed in Rome, etching, writing, publishing, and directing a workshop in which the restoration and sale of antiques played a considerable part.He was famous for his poetic views of Rome and also his fantastic imaginary interiors. His skills, allied to his deep knowledge of archaeology, provided the substance for his Vedute (Views), a series of 135 etchings of ancient and contemporary Rome, published from 1745 onwards, which established the popular mental image of the city. Vasi.et Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, together with other antiquities excavated (and in some cases created) in Italy in the 18th century. The prints were initially separately issued and sold by Piranesi over a period of several years and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, in 1778. They illustrate a wide range of genuine antiquities, as well as Piranesi's own collections, from utilitarian objects such as cinerary urns, lamps, and sarcophagi to monumental vases. The plates in Vasi often included text by Piranesi with information about where the objects were discovered and their contemporary location, and the prints bore dedications to his patrons, colleagues, visitors and influential people. He believed absolutely in the supremacy of Roman over Greek architecture, an argument he expounded most forcefully in his Della magnificenza ed architettura dei Romani (On the Magnificence of Roman Architecture, 1761). his romanticized views and imaginary interiors had a profound effect on stage designers, painters of capricci such as Hubert Robert, and even writers: William Beckford, the author of the Gothic novel and Vathek .

        A Chart of Part of the Coast of Labradore, from Grand Point to Shecatica, surveyed by Michael Lane in 1768, and Engraved by Thomas Jefferys Geographer to the King.

      Printed for R. Sayer and I. Bennett, London 1775 - A chart of the coast of Labrador from the survey that launched the career of Captain James Cook. At the conclusion of the French and Indian War, the British needed accurate charts of the territories that had been awarded to them in the Treaty of Paris. The areas that were of particular interest to the Admiralty included Labrador and Newfoundland. "On 19 April 1763 James Cook, Master R.N. was ordered by the Admiralty to proceed to Newfoundland 'in order to your taking a survey of the Parts of the Coasts and Harbours of that Island'" (Tooley & Skelton, in The Mapping of America p.177). His appointment would have been based, in no small part, on the glowing endorsement of his commanding officer, who had written to the Admiralty in December 1762 "that from my experience of Mr. Cook's genius and capacity, I think him well fitted for the work he has undertaken, and for greater undertakings of the same kind". "The charting of Newfoundland and southern Labrador by Cook. and by his successor Michael Lane . was unequalled, for thoroughness and method, by any previous hydrographic work by Englishmen [and also allowed Cook to master the art of practical surveying and navigation, in a way that brought him to the attention of the Admiralty and the Royal Society at a crucial moment. More immediately.] it produced the first charts of this extensive and difficult coastline that could (in the words of a later hydrographer) 'with any degree of safety be trusted by the seaman'" (Tooley & Skelton op. cit.). Cook started by surveying the northwest stretch of coastline in 1763 and 1764, then in 1765 and 1766 the south coast between Cape Ray and the Burin Peninsula, and in 1767 the west coast. His work was interrupted by what was to prove to be the first of his three great voyages to the Pacific, and the work on Newfoundland and southern Labrador was finished by Michael Lane between 1768 and 1773" (Tooley & Skelton). This copy is the second issue of the map as published in the first edition of the North American Pilot (preceded only by the very rare first issue of the map, without Sayer and Bennett's imprint, which appeared in Jeffery's Collection of Charts of the Coasts of Newfoundland and Labradore in 1769).

        A Chart of the South-east Part of Newfoundland, Containing the Bays of Placentia, St. Mary, Trepassy and Conception, from Actual Surveys

      Printed for R. Sayer and I. Bennet, London 1775 - A spectacular chart from the survey that launched the career of Captain James Cook. At the conclusion of the French and Indian War, the British needed accurate charts of the territories that had been awarded to them in the Treaty of Paris. The areas that were of particular interest to the Admiralty included Labrador and Newfoundland. "On 19 April 1763 James Cook, Master R.N. was ordered by the Admiralty to proceed to Newfoundland 'in order to your taking a survey of the Parts of the Coasts and Harbours of that Island'" (Tooley & Skelton, in The Mapping of America p.177).

His work was interrupted by what was to prove to be the first of his three great voyages to the Pacific, and the work on Newfoundland and southern Labrador was continued by Joseph Gilbert between 1767 and 1769 and Michael Lane between 1768 and 1773" (Tooley & Skelton op,cit.). Gilbert, a surveyor in the Newfoundland squadron and the master of the HMS Guernsey, would survey the coast of Labrador between St. Peter's Bay and Cape Bluff in 1767 and the following year chart the coast of southeast Newfoundland between the Bay of Placentia and Conception Bay. The present chart is based on the latter survey, with additions from Lane's surveys of the area between 1772-73. Cook held Gilbert in high esteem and the surveyor, although about the same age as Cook, would later serve as master of the Resolution on Cook's second voyage. The present chart is an example of the second state of the map, as published in the first edition of the North American Pilot , with Sayer and Bennett's 1770 imprint, "III" in the upper right corner and the magnetic variation for 1773 noted. It is preceded only by a very rare issue of the map published in Jeffery's 1769-1770 The Newfoundland Pilot .

        Septemdecim tabulae quas nunc primun edit atque explicat, iisque alias addit de structura mammarum et de tunica testis vaginali Michael Girardi (1731-1797).

      ex Regia Typographia (Giovambattista Bodoni) 1775 - . tunica testis vaginali Michael Girardi (1731-1737). In- folio, m. pelle ottocentesca. (viii), xxxv, (1) pp. 1 f. fra le pp. 210-211 (monita e imprimatur), ritratto a piena pagina dell' autore finemente inciso in rame e 42 eccellenti tavole anatomiche pure incise in rame su disegni del Piazzetta. Alcune lievi rifioriture in poche pagine di testo, ma bell' esemplare abbondante di margini nel suo stato originale di conservazione. Prima edizione dell' opera medica più bella e più rara uscita dai torchi della celebre Officina Bodoniana. Sconosciuta al De Lama e al Brooks. "The work belongs to the best of its time (as Haller recognized, II, 715), not only as regards the dissections and illustrations, but also as to the very elaborate commentary. The pictures deal with the facial muscles, the base of the brain and other parts of the brain, the organs of smell and hearing, the pharynx, the breast, the heart, the diaphragm with the beginning of the thoracic duct, the stomach, the liver, the intestines, the pancreas, the ileocecal valve, the bladder, the muscles of the perineum, and the genitals. Covoli's pictures represent the breasts, the tunics of the testicle and a six months' fetus. The first seventeen plates were by Santorini; two of the last four plates belonged to the anatomist Giovanni Battista Covoli. The other two belonged to the editor, Michele Girardi (1731-1797), a professor of anatomy in Parma, who wrote a commentary for Santorini's plates. Al the twenty-one prints of the work are done in a light crayon effect which, however, does not impair the anatomic clarity of the prints, but even brings out well the differences in the tissues. Each plate is accompanied by an outline plate which is marked with reference letters. The seventeen plates by Santorini have a ruled margin at the top and on the side, but have no signatures of the artists. They were drawn by GIOVANNI BATTISTA PIAZZETTA (1682-1754), who made the coppers for Tasso's Gerusalemme liberata, Venezia, 1754." (Choulant & Frank, History and bibliography of anatomic illustration, pp. 262-64). "Santorini died before the completion of these anatomical plates which he intended to be his chef d' oeuvre. This elegantly printed volume is the only significant medical book printed by the celebrated Giambattista Bodoni for the Duke of Parma" (Garrison & Morton, Medical Bibliography, 399.1).

A beautiful, unsophisticated copy. ---- Choulant-Frank, pp. 262-64; Garrison-Morton 399.1; Wellcome V, 22; Heirs of Hippocrates 788; Norman 1888; Cushing S66, Waller 8476. - FIRST EDITION. Santorini's posthumously published Septemdecim tabulae is noteworthy as the only significant medical book from the press of the great Italian printer Giambattista Bodoni, printer to the Duke of Parma and creator of the "modern" style typeface now named for him. Like William Hunter's Anatomy of the Gravid Uterus, Santorini's work is one of the very few medical books issued by a private press. The first 17 plates in the work, the "septemdecim tabulae" of the title, were drawn by Giovanni Battista Piazzetta (1682-1754), and engraved by Florentia Marcella under Santorini's personal supervision. Santorini intended them for an enlarged edition of his Observationes anatomicae (1724), but died before completing this task. The plates were published 38 years after Santorini's death by Michael Girardi, a professor of anatomy at Parma, who added to them two plates by the anatomist Giovanni Battista Covoli, as well as two of his own. Girardi also prepared the extensive commentary, using portions of Santorini's and Covoli's posthumous writings. Santorini's plates illustrate several complex gross features of the human body, including the facial muscles, organs of smell and hearing, the pharynx, the breasts, the diaphragm, the intestines, the bladder and the genitals. Covoli's plates show various parts of the female breast, as does Girardi's first plate; his second plate shows a partially dissected six-month fetus. Santorini's name has been given to the arytenoid cartilages, the risorius muscle and the plexus pudendalis venosus. --- Erste Ausgabe von Santorinis Hauptwerk, gleichzeitig das einzige medizinische Werk, das Giambattista Bodoni fur den Herzog von Parma gedruckt hat. "Santorini gehört zu den hervorragendsten Anatomen seiner Zeit und stand wegen seiner sehr bedeutenden anatomischen Leistungen bei allen gelehrten Zeitgenossen in grossem Rufe" (Hirsch-H.). Die schönen Tafeln enstanden zum grössten Teil nach Zeichnungen von Giovanni Battista Piazzetta, der auch die Illustrationen zum berühmten Valgrisi-Tasso von 1745 geschaffen hatte, und wurden von Marcella unter der persönlichen Aufsicht des Künstlers gestochen.

        Letters from Yorick to Eliza; [bound after] Sterne's letters to his friends on various occasions

      London: [1st work] printed for T. Evans; [2nd] for G. Kearsly; and J. Johnson,, 1775. To which is added, his History of a watch coat, with explanatory notes. 2 volumes bound in one, small octavo (155 × 94 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, spine with double gilt rules either side of raised bands, red morocco label, red and blue sprinkled edges. Early engraved armorial bookplate (motto "Festina Lente"). A little rubbed, faint offsetting to some leaves, still a fine copy. Second London edition ("though not so-named" – Cross) of the Letters from Yorick to Eliza. This genuine correspondence between Sterne and his friend Eliza Draper was later imitated in Letters Supposed to have been Written by Yorick and Eliza (1779) by William Combe, who was also the editor of Sterne's Letters to His Friends, a combination of authentic and fabricated correspondence. It contains 12 letters, of which three are probably authentic, and one is from John Eustace to Sterne; the others are by Combe, who thereby established himself as a skilful literary imitator. Sterne had died in 1768; his daughter gathered 114 of his letters in three volumes, published in October the same year as these two less respectable volumes.

        A List of the General and Field-Officers, As they Rank in the Army; of the Officers in the Several Regiments of Horse, Dragoons, and Foot, on the British and Irish Establishments

      London: Printed for J. Millan, 1775 - Octavo (229 × 133 mm) Contemporary red morocco, green morocco label, spine gilt in compartments, floral central tools with foliate arabesque corner-pieces, wide Greek key roll panel to the boards, milled gilt edge-roll, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. A little rubbed at the extremities, corners bumped, mild soiling on the boards, a couple of small patches of stripping, but overall very good. First edition. These eighteenth-century Army Lists are becoming harder and harder to find, and those for the years of the American War of Independence are particularly desirable. This is especially true when, as here, they are presented in the style of binding which seems to have been reserved by the War Office for presentation copies.

        Histoire des Plantes de la Guiane Françoise, rangées suivant la méthode sexuelle, avec plusieurs mémoires sur différens objects intéressans, relatifs à la Culture & au Commerce de la Guiane Françoise .

      - Londres/ Paris, P.F. Didot jeune, 1775. 4 volumes (2 text volumes & 2 volumes of plates). 4to (250 x 194mm). pp. (4), 32, 1-621; (3), 622-976, 52, 160, with engraved frontispiece and 392 fine engraved plates. Contemporary mottled calf, richly gilt floral ornamented spines, with 2 red and green labels, covers with gilt borderlines. A fine copy of the first flora of French Guiana, profusely illustrated with excellent plates. "Aublet's further words on the conditions under which a naturalist worked in the French possessions are almost identical to those of Adanson with respect to his Senegalese years; the scorn of the other settlers, the absence of chances of financial reward, the hard-boiled mercenary attitude of his 'colleagues'. In addition to that are the hardships of trying to botanize in the tropical jungle with its - at that time - almost unknown hazards. . The 'Histoire' of 1775 is written, characteristically, in French and in Latin . it is remarkable that Aublet's book is fully Linnaean both with respect to taxonomy (the sexual system and the generic delimitations) and to nomenclature. It contains the descriptions of not less than 400 new species . it is still the basis for the study of the flora of the Guiana region" (Stafleu. Linnaeus and the Linnaeans, p. 283)."It is clear that Fusée Aublet should be considered one of the 'founding fathers' of neotropical ethnobotany. Although most botanists think of his 'Histoire des Plantes de la Guiane Françoise' as a taxonomic treatise, Aublet was in fact sent to French Guiana as an Apothecary-Botanist. His book describes uses of 124 species from 56 different families. That he employed many of the plants himself and that he used many of the vernacular names as the bases for his Latin names seems to indicate a high regard for the botanical sophistication of his indigenous colleagues" (Plotkin, Boom & Allison. The Ethnobotany of Aublet's 'Histoire des Plantes.' p. 2).A very few leaves with some minor old marginal paper repair. Titles with small old library stamp.Stafleu & Cowan 206; Nissen BBI, 54.

      Lisbon, Na Regia Officina Typografica, 1775. - Woodcut vignette and initial. 123 pp., (1, 1 blank ll.). 4°, splendid contemporary Portuguese binding of crimson sheep (light wear at corners, head and foot of spine; short splits in joints near head of spine), spine richly gilt with raised bands in six compartments, richly gilt roll-tooled border on each cover, edges of covers gilt tooled, all text-block edges gilt. Occasional slight marginal soiling. Overall in fine condition. Bookplates of Victor Avila-Perez and Fernando Alves Barata. ---- FIRST EDITION. "A very important book, and very rare indeed" (Borba de Moraes), containing many poems (all unsigned) written in 1775 in honor of the dedication of the statue of D. José I in Lisbon's Praça do Comercio. These are preceded by a description of the dedication ceremonies (pp. 3-74). Borba de Moraes mentions a variant in which the pagination is not continuous throughout the volume.Five of the odes and six sonnets are generally acknowledged to be the work of Domingos Caldas Barbosa, one of the finest Brazilian poets of the colonial period. These poems also appeared (again unsigned) in the undated, 27-page @Collecção de poesias feitas na feliz inauguração da Estatua Equestre, which is itself a rare work. Of these 11 poems Borba knew of no later reprints, separately or in anthologies. Whether the @Narração or the @Collecção came first is not clear: the type is set in very similar style in both, but there are variations in wording, and the order in which the poems appear differs considerably.Given the thematic structure of the @Narração, it is possible that some of the poems that did not appear in the @Collecção were also the work of Caldas Barbosa. In the @Narração, an ode entitled "Europa," which is attributed to Caldas Barbosa, is followed (pp. 79-84) by one entitled "Convoca a Europa os Genios festivos do paiz, e as deidades maritimas . . . ," then by Caldas Barbosa's "Asia," then by an ode and a sonnet entitled, respectively, "Vem a Asia offerecer os seus dons ao muito alto, e poderoso Rey . . . " (pp. 88-91), and "Vem Africa applaudir o felicissimo dia da famosa inauguração da estatua equestre . . . " (p. 92). These are followed by two more poems attributed to Caldas Barbosa, entitled "Africa," and "America," which are followed by the unattributed ode "Vem a America applaudir o feliz dia da famosa inauguração da estatua equestre . . . " (pp. 99-101). If these are not the work of Caldas Barbosa, it would be extremely interesting to know who composed these transitional pieces; a study of the style might clarify matters. A stylistic study might also show whether all 13 of the sonnets on pp. 117-23 are Caldas Barbosa's work, rather than only the five that appeared in the @Collecção.Caldas Barbosa was probably born in Rio de Janeiro in 1740; his mixed parentage (father Portuguese, mother African) led some nineteenth-century critics to dub him the "mulatto muse." When his satirical poetry offended some powerful citizens of his native city, he was sent to serve in the army at Colonia do Sacramento, in present-day Uruguay, for several years, until 1762. After another seven or eight years in Rio de Janeiro he moved to Lisbon, where he became the protégé of the Count of Pombeiro and was widely acclaimed as a singer and poet until his sudden death in 1800. Varnhagen describes the author's popularity in Lisbon society: his presence "se tornou quase uma necessidade de todas as festas, sobretudo nas partidas do campo. Nas aristocráticas reuniões das Caldas, nos cansados banhos de mar, nos pitorescos passeios de Sintra, em Belas, em Queluz, em Benfica, sociedade onde não se ahcava o fulo Caldas com sua viola não se julgava completa" (@Florilégio da poesia brasileira, quoted in W. Martins II:7, n. 578).A founder and president of the major literary establishment in Portugal during the eighteenth century, the Nova Arcadia, Caldas Barbosa's nom-de-plume was "Lereno"?hence @Viola de Lereno, "Lereno's guitar."

        Code, ou nouveau réglement sur les lieux de prostitutions dans la ville de Paris.

      'Londres' [but ?Paris], 1775 - First edition. An especially draconian proposal for the regulation of prostitution in the city of Paris. Various codes had been proposed during the eighteenth century, the most influential being the utilitarian Pornographe by Restif de la Bretonne published in 1769. The author of the 1775 Code seems to be responding directly to Restif. Where the Pornographe was accepting of the profession and concerned with the welfare of those associated with it, the Code proposed repressive measures in its 45 articles designed mainly to punish prostitution as a vice. 12mo (176 × 108 mm), pp. xx, 191, [1], including half-title. Woodcut ornaments. Slight adhesion of title verso to dedication leaf at foot, obscuring a small portion of the text of the latter. Uncut in contemporary paste-paper wrappers, spine label lettered in early manuscript. Rubbed and spine slightly faded and cracked. A very good, unsophisticated copy. [Gay I, 608. OCLC lists no copy outside continental Europe.] [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        JOURNAL OF THE PROCEEDINGS OF THE CONGRESS, HELD AT PHILADELPHIA, MAY 10, 1775.

      Philadelphia: Printed and sold by William and Thomas Bradford., 1775. - [4],iv,239pp. Half title. Modern half calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, leather label. Light foxing and soiling throughout, a few leaves more heavily. Very good. The journals of the second Continental Congress, covering its activities from its convening on May 10, 1775 through adjournment on Sept. 5, 1775. The activities of this summer, against the background of open conflict in Massachusetts, are among the most dramatic of the Revolutionary era. Included are reports concerning Lexington- Concord, the address to the inhabitants of Canada inviting them to join the other thirteen colonies, numerous military matters, the Declaration of the Causes and Necessity for Taking Up Arms, the Olive Branch Petition, the American negotiations with the Six Nations, and other crucial material. Essentially this volume is the very crux of the beginning of the Revolution, convening a few weeks after open warfare had begun, and recording the essential shift in attitude in the Congress from conciliation to revolution. These journals, like those of the first Congress, were printed in very limited quantities and are quite rare. HOWES J264, "aa." EVANS 14569.
