        A SERMON PREACHED BEFORE THE HONORABLE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, ON THE DAY INTENDED FOR THE CHOICE OF COUNSELLORS, AGREEABLE TO THE ADVICE OF THE CONTINENTAL CONGRESS.

      Watertown, Ma. 1775. - 29pp. Half title. Contemporary ownership inscription on front wrapper. Somewhat tanned, scattered foxing. Very good. William Gordon, later one of the first American historians of the Revolution, reflects on the situation of the Continental Congress in a sermon before the General Court of the Massachusetts Provincial Congress on July 19, 1775. Gordon himself was, "a vigorous partisan of independence and in 1775 was made chaplain to both houses of the Provincial Congress assembled at Watertown. Congress possessed great confidence in him and voted him a good horse and access to the prisoners of war." Of the forthcoming conflict, Gordon says in his address: "He who does not mean to bear a part in the public burdens of the day, but to escape wholly unhurt in property and person is no patriot; while he that, instead of serving, designs only to serve himself of the public, to acquire riches and raise a fortune out of the general calamity, must be really the worst of men, cannot deserve the protection of the state, and when discover'd must be detested by every true son and daughter of liberty, as being a most odious character."

        An Inquiry into the Principles of the Distribution of Wealth most conducive to Human Happiness. A New Edition by William Pare.

      Octavo. XXXII, 463 pages. Hardcover (contemporary, blindstamped publisher's cloth covered boards). The corners stronger bumped but this extremely rare volume in overall good to very good- condition with some clear signs of external wear. This second edition of special interest because of the editor William Pare's lengthy preface in which he talks about Thompson's philosophy, biography and his early decision to turn vegetarian and teetotal. William Thompson (1775 28 March 1833) was an Irish political and philosophical writer and social reformer, developing from utilitarianism into an early critic of capitalist exploitation whose ideas influenced the Cooperative, Trade Union and Chartist movements as well as Karl Marx. Born into the Anglo-Irish Ascendancy of wealthy landowners and merchants of Cork society, his attempt to will his estate to the cooperative movement after his death sparked a long court case as his family fought successfully to have the will annulled. According to E. T. Craig, this decision to will his estate to the cooperative movement was taken after a visit to the pioneering Ralahine Commune. Born in Cork, William was the son and heir of one of the most prosperous merchants of that city, Alderman John Thompson, who held, amongst other offices, that of Mayor in 1794. William inherited the small trading fleet and landed estate near Glandore, West Cork after his father's death in 1814. Rejecting the role of absentee landlord commonly led by those of a similar situation, William based his living quarters on the estate and despite many travels, invested much time with the tenants on the estate introducing agricultural innovations, services and education for children aimed at improving the welfare and prosperity of the families present. Victim of weak health from an early age, Thompson became a non-smoker, teetotaller and vegetarian for the last 13 years of his life. These abstemious habits, he explained helped him in concentrating on his reading and writing. Nonetheless, by the 1830s he was suffering from a chest affliction that finally killed him on 28 March 1833. He had never married and left no direct heir. An enthusiastic student of the writers and ideas of the Enlightenment, particularly Condorcet, Thompson became a convinced egalitarian and democrat. His support for the French Revolution earned him the label of "Red Republican" from Cork society and his support for advocates of Catholic emancipation in elections further alienated him from the rest of his wealthy Protestant kith and kin. Thompson was greatly impressed by the utilitarianism of Jeremy Bentham with whom he corresponded and established a friendship, later staying at the English philosopher's house for several months in 182122 while visiting London. As well as Bentham, Thompson read and corresponded with other utilitarian contemporaries such as James Mill and was influenced, both positively and negatively, by William Godwin and Thomas Malthus. His desire to overcome the limitations of Godwin's "intellectual speculations" and Malthus's "mechanical speculations" led him to propose a new synthesis: social science Thompson was the first to introduce this term would combine political economy's concern with scientific materialism with utilitarianism's concern with rational morality. It was the contrasting ideas of Godwin and Malthus that spurred Thompson into the project of research into the role of distribution in political economy that led him to London and, in 1824, the publication of "An Inquiry into the Principles of the Distribution of Wealth most conducive to Human Happiness" . Thompson had also become acquainted with the work of the French utopian socialists including Charles Fourier, Henri Saint-Simon and the economist Sismondi. In the Inquiry, Thompson follows the line of the labour theory of value put forward by Adam Smith. However he characterises the appropriation of the lion's share of surplus value by the capitalist owner of the tools of production as exploitation. He rejects the Malthus/Mill proposition that any increase in the wage of the workers can only result in their further immiseration, noting the self-serving nature of this theory for capitalists pressing for legislation to outlaw workers efforts to raise their wages. By applying the utilitarian principle of "the greatest good for the greatest number" to the existing and possible alternative schemes of distribution, Thompson comes down on the side of an egalitarian distribution of the product. One of Thompson's colleagues in the Cooperative movement, John Minter Morgan, made the observation that he was the first to coin the term competitive to describe the existing economic system. The case for the originality of this work is further made by Max Nettlau who states: "[Thompson's] book, however, discloses his own evolution having started with a demand for the full product of labour as well as the regulation of distribution, he ended up with his own conversion to communism, that is, unlimited distribution." In 1827 fellow "Ricardian socialist" Thomas Hodgskin published Labour Defended which also characterised the appropriation of the lion's share of the fruits of production by landlord and capitalist as exploitation defrauding the worker of the full product of their labour. However, Hodgskin proposed that the road to economic justice for the labourer was through a reformed competitive system. Thompson replied with Labor Rewarded defending cooperative communism against Hodgskin's unequal wages. Although he rejected the political and economic implications of Malthus' essay on population, Thompson recognised that, particularly in Ireland, unrestrained population growth did pose the threat of rising poverty. As such he was like Bentham and Francis Place an advocate of the benefits of contraception. Thompson's development of a critique of the contemporary status of women was most strongly influenced by his long-term close friendship with Anna Wheeler. He had met Wheeler while staying with Bentham and they moved in those utilitarian circles that included James Mill. It was the publication of the latter's "On Government" which called for the vote for men only, that aroused the fervent opposition of both Wheeler and Thompson and to the rebuttal in Appeal of One Half the Human Race... Thompson and others of the Cooperative movement have tended to be somewhat unfairly subsumed under the political label of Owenism. In fact, although his writings and social experiments at New Lanark had helped to bring the cooperative movement together, many, Thompson included, were critical of Owen's authoritarian and anti-democratic tendencies. Thompson further distrusted Owen's courtship of rich and powerful patrons, believing that the rich as a class could be never be expected to be in favour of any project of emancipation for the labouring poor as this would threaten their privilege. He also believed in the necessity of the workers in any co-operative community having eventual security of ownership of the community's land and capital property. He gained a considerable following within the cooperative movement for these positions and it was to distinguish themselves from Owen's positions that this wing of the movement began to adopt the label of "socialist or communionist" (Letter to "The Cooperative Magazine", London, November 1827, cited by OED as first documented use of socialist) rather than "Owenist". These differences led to open confrontation between Thompson and Owen at the Third Cooperative Congress held in 1832 in London. Owen, perhaps discouraged by the failure of his attempted community at New Harmony, maintained that it was necessary to wait for Government and Stock Exchange support and investment into large scale communities. Thompson and his supporters contended that they must move towards establishing independent small scale communities based on the movement's own resources. The argument was not resolved at that congress and by the following one Thompson was unable to attend probably as a result of the illness that was to lead to his death in another five months. Karl Marx had come across Thompson's work on a visit to Manchester in 1845 and cites it in passing in The Poverty of Philosophy (1847) and also in Capital itself. However the same can be said of other of the proto-socialist political economists such as Thomas Hodgskin, John Gray, John Francis Bray. It seems surprising then, that the likes of Beatrice and Sidney Webb would characterise Marx as "the illustrious disciple" of Thompson and Hodgskin. Sentiments also echoed by the likes of Harold Laski and other British historians of socialism. In this they were accepting the earlier thesis in Anton Menger's Right to the Whole Produce of Labour (1899), amalgamating all the aforementioned into a homogeneous category of Ricardian socialists which obscured the important differences between Thompson's communist critique of Hodgskin's "market libertarian" position. (Wikipedia) ______________________ PARE, WILLIAM (1805-1873), co-operator, son of John Pare, cabinet-maker and upholsterer, of Birmingham, was born there in 1805. He was apprenticed to his father, but became a reporter. He subsequently engaged in business as a tobacco and cigar retailer in New Street, Birmingham. Early in life he helped to found a mechanics' institution in that town, and joined the small group of men who were trying to obtain a reform in the parliamentary representation. He also took part in the agitation for the repeal of the test and corporation acts, and for Roman catholic emancipation. On the formation of the 'Political Union in 1830' he became a member of the council, when he advocated extension of the suffrage, shorter parliaments, and vote by ballot. On 7 Aug. 1832 he drafted and moved in the parish church three resolutions against the payment of church rates. The petition, then adopted and sent by him to Hume, was the last presented to the unreformed House of Commons. When the 'Reformers' Registration Society' was established in 1835, Pare became secretary. He was the first registrar of Birmingham under the act legalising civil marriages (6 and 7 Will. iv. c. 85). As a member of the charter committee appointed in 1837, he actively promoted the incorporation of the town, and was a member of the first town council. Meanwhile Pare had become widely known as an able disciple of Robert Owen [q. v.] Converted to his teaching by William Thompson of Cork, Pare was one of the founders in 1828 of the first Birmingham co-operative society, at the anniversary of which he presided on 28 Dec. 1829. In the following year he attracted notice by the lectures he gave in support of co-operation at Liverpool, Manchester, Bolton, Chester, and other places. From May 1830, when the first co-operative congress was held at Manchester, until 1838, he constantly attended the congresses as one of the secretaries. From 1832 he advocated the establishment of labour exchanges, and mainly through his efforts the one at Birmingham had some success. He was one of the trustees of the property bequeathed for co-operative purposes by William Thompson of Cork in 1833 and when the heirs-at-law instituted an action in the Irish court of chancery, he went to Ireland to watch over the interests of the trustees, lecturing at various co-operative centres on the way. He was vice-president of Owen's society, 'The Association of all Classes of all Nations,' of which the central board was established at Birmingham. He continued an active member of the board until its removal to London in 1840. Forced to resign his registrarship in consequence of his socialistic opinions, he left Birmingham in November 1842, when he was presented with a public testimonial. From 1842 to 1844 he was acting-governor of Owen's community at Queenwood, Hampshire. He removed to London in 1844, and as a railway statist he was frequently employed to prepare

        Faucon avec le colier [Collared Albanella Falcon]

      [Rome: Bouchard & Gravier, 1775. Etching with engraving, coloured by hand. Very good condition apart from some very light foxing. A beautiful, exuberant image from one of the rarest colour-plate bird books 'Recueil de cent-trente-trois Oiseaux des plus belle especes'.Maddalena Bouchard may be considered by some as a primitive among bird artists; however, while her birds are not true to nature in the conventional sense, they have more exuberance and charm than almost any other ornithological art with the possible exception of Manetti's Ornithologia (1765-76). Bouchard was also responsible for plates in Bonelli's Hortus Romanus (Rome 1772-93), which was also published by Bouchard and Gravier.The fierce falcon either alighting or taking off embodies the killer instinct, despite what at a later date might be called psychedelic eyes.Cf. Anker 53; cf. Nissen IVB 124; cf. Fine Birds Books (1990), p. 79; cf. Ripley and Scriber p. 37.

        Les loisirs du chevalier d'Eon de Beaumont, ancien ministre plénipotentiaire de France; sur divers sujets importants d'administration, &c. pendant son séjour en Angleterre.

      Amsterdam, 1775. 13 volumes in-8; environ 300p. par volume. Reliure d'époque en basane marbrée, dos lisse avec pièces de titre et de tomaison, jolies gardes de papier à la colle, tranches rouges. Reliure usagée mais solide: plusieurs coiffes arrachées, pièces de tomaison frottées, travail de vers sur les plats et galeries de vers marginales à plusieurs volumes, effleurant à peine le texte sur quelques feuillets. Très bon état général intérieur malgré les défauts cités. Ensemble peu courant de cet ensemble de pièces et réflexions variées et fort intéressantes, écrites durant le séjour forcé du chevalier en Angleterre de 1766 à 1777. Personnage hors normes, diplomate exceptionnel qui travailla toujours dans l'ombre mais aussi économiste et brillant militaire, le chevalier d'Eon passa de nombreuses années à la cour de Russie (où il fut introduit en 1755 sous un déguisement féminin qui lui permit d'obtenir une place de lectrice auprès de l'impératrice), puis à Londres comme ministre plénipotentiaire. Les rapports directs et secrets qu'il entretenait avec Louis XV lui valurent cependant l'hostilité de la Cour et en particulier de Madame de Pompadour, et le roi céda à regret aux pressions de son entourage en extradant le chevalier, tout en lui conseillant de se mettre sous la protection du peuple anglais. Les textes ici rassemblés témoignent des intérêts variés de l'auteur: Recherches historiques sur la Russie, la Pologne, l'Alsace, les royaumes de Naples et Sicile; recherches sur le commerce, la navigation, les charges, les péages, le célibat...; examen de la banque de Law; Observations sur l'Angleterre, l'Ecosse, et les colonies anglaises en Amérique; dissertations sur le commerce du blé, les enfants trouvés, la gabelle, les aides, les impôts, la taille, les finances, le tabac; situation de la France en Inde...

        Acts of Assembly of the Province of Pennsylvania

      1775 - (REVOLUTION). The Acts of Assembly of the Province of Pennsylvania". And an Appendix". Together with the Royal, Proprietary, City and Borough Charters; and the Original Concessions of the Honourable William Penn to the First Settlers of the Province. Philadelphia: Hall and Sellers, 1775. Folio, period style full speckled calf gilt, red morocco spine label, raised bands, marbled endpapers. $2000.First edition of this official folio collection of the Acts of the Pennsylvania Assembly, published by Franklin's longtime partner and spanning the rule of four British monarchs, containing a printing of the Pennsylvania charter of 1681, issued only one year after the convening of the First Continental Congress and shortly before the Assembly was disbanded on the eve of revolution.This 1775 official printing of the collected Acts of the Pennsylvania Assembly marks a turning point in American history. Published by the former partner of Benjamin Franklin, this folio volume appeared only one year before the colonial Assembly was disbanded and replaced under the Pennsylvania Constitution of 1776. Further, this key record emerged shortly after the Pennsylvania Assembly elections of October 1774 were "convened while the First Continental Congress deliberated."&#157; That 1774 Assembly then "promptly approved its actions"" the first colonial legislature to do so"&#157; (Klein, History of Pennsylvania, 88). Herein are Acts passed under the rule of four British monarchs (1700-1775), a printing of the Pennsylvania Charter of 1681, and laws on religious freedom, western expansion, the controversial quartering of British soldiers, colonial defense and changing relations with Indians. The shift toward revolution is also implicit here in actions such as a 1767 law that orders death for the counterfeiting of currency (p. 336)""signaling a increase of "troubles over paper money and the quartering of soldiers that kept alive the feeling against England"&#157; (Lincoln, Revolutionary Movement, 137). In 1776 the Assembly was disbanded in a move aided "by the Continental Congress which, indeed, chose Philadelphia as its meeting place partly to give aid and encouragement to the Pennsylvania revolutionary party"&#157; (Klein, 93-4). This first edition edited by loyalist Joseph Galloway and published by David Hall, a longtime partner in Benjamin Franklin's publishing firm. Franklin had captured the government printing job in Pennsylvania from his rivals the Bradfords when he was made clerk of the Assembly in 1736, a position that allowed Franklin to secure "the business of printing the votes, laws, paper money, and other occasional jobs for the public"&#157;"" especially regular printings of the Acts. In 1748 "Franklin retired and turned over the operation of his printing business to his foreman David Hall"&#157; (Isaacson, 114, 127). Franklin and Hall's firm regularly published these official collections until their partnership expired in 1766, and Hall continued to publish Assembly Acts under his imprint. Without three-page Addendum, rarely found. Evans 14364. Harvard Law Catalogue, 322. Sabin 59820. Thomas, 379-80. Tower, 216. Text generally fresh with light scattered foxing, light marginalia.

        AYRSHIRE, SCOTLAND: A New Map of Ayr Shire comprehending Kyle, Cunningham & Carrick.

      - This impressive and beautifully engraved wall map represents one of the great Enlightenment Era regional surveys of Scotland. Issued in 1775, it brings to print Andrew and Mostyn John Armstrong&#146;s exquisitely detailed survey of Ayrshire and it is importantly the first printed large-scale map of the county. It occupies an important place in the contemporary mapping of Britain, being one of the rarest of the great county surveys done to a scale of 1 mile to 1 inch. Ayrshire is and was then one of the most pleasing parts of Scotland, with a topography of rolling hills that meet the shores of the Firth of Clyde, not far to the southwest of the busy port of Glasgow. The map captures the landscape and the various manmade improvements with remarkable elegance and precision. As noted in the &#145;Explanation&#146;, located on the right side of the map, it employs pictographic symbols to designate: Market Towns; Parishes; Villages; Farm houses; Cottage houses; Churches; Seats and noble houses (ie. the area&#146;s numerous named Great Estates); Ruins; Turnpike Roads; Country Roads, Camps; Woods; Coal Pitts; Flows, Bogs and Mosses; Pikes, Cairns and Crosses; Boundaries and Hills. An attractive vignette of a ruined folly adorns the title cartouche. Curiously, the map features numerous notes, many of them quite entertaining, on local phenomena and the hazards of travel. For example, along the shore just south of the town of Girvan it is noted that "At this Point between the Road & the Sea are two remarkable Rocks in the shape of Men and called the Old Laird & the Young, and for Some Miles south of the Road leads through sharp pointed Pyramids of Rock standing on end and may be called a Forest of Stones instead of Trees." Just north of the village of Daily it is noted that "Near this a Colliery was Lost by taking Fire, and has continued burning above Eighty Years, at times rages and the Water that runs from it is scalding hot." As a warning to watch your step, the map notes that "At the Nick of Darlae & Half a Mile West, the Road leads to the Side of a very steep Hill, its not above two feet broad and if you stumble you must fall almost Perpendicular six or seven Hundred Feet." A detailed &#145;Plan of the town of Ayr&#146; occupies the lower right corner of the composition. The shire town is shown to straddle the banks of the Ayr River, as it enters the sea. The old town occupies the south bank, with the new town expands to the north. The old fort guards the seaward approaches the old town, which is itself centred on the &#145;Market Corss&#146;. Several major buildings are labeled, including churches, a schoolhouse, the meat market, the goal, as well as two breweries. Historical Context The Armstrong map of Ayrshire was produced within the context of the &#145;Re-Mapping of Britain&#146; that occurred during the mid to late 18th Century. Compared to the Netherlands, France and certain German states, Britain was a laggard with respect to producing large-scale topographic surveys of its territory. However, the situation began to change in the 1740s. While the existing small and medium scale maps of the counties of England and Scotland were vaguely informative they did not feature sufficient detail to serve a wide variety of practical uses. In an era of rapid economic growth, accurate and detailed maps were required for such uses as demarcating cadastral divisions, urban planning and infrastructure development. Systematic trigonometric surveys producing large-scale maps of the counties were in order. As the crown would not subsidize these exceedingly expensive endeavors, the process of conducting the first scientific mapping of Britain would take over a century. As the historical divisions of both Scotland and England were the counties, regional mapping was assumed to correspond to these jurisdictional entities. It was generally held that for topographical maps to be broadly and truly useful, they needed to be done to a scale of 1 mile to 1 inch. The first such county surveys undertaken

"...was an Irish barmaid of striking beauty who met the peripatetic author and adventurer Ange Goudar when he was in London with Casanova. Goudar appears to have eloped with her under the nose of the great roué, and she later became a celebrated society figure in Italy. Contemporary and later writers have suggested that the works bearing her name may in fact have been written by her husband, Casanova commenting sourly in a letter in 1787 "elles sont de lui car Sara ne sait que chanter et faire des dûpes". Ange was described by the same author as "homme d'esprit, maquereau, voleur au jeu, espion de police, faux témoin, fourbe, hardi et laid" (Quelle: Cambridge University Library) Zustand.
