It was a profound influence on the American Founding Fathers, John Adams especially, who said the book "ought to be in the hands of every American who has learned to read" (cited in Wood).

MIRABEAU (Victor Riquetti, marquis de);
Berne chez la Société typographique 1775 3 vol. in-12 brochés de (4)-LII-379-(1) pp. ; (5)-[380 à]-885-(4) pp. ; (4)-564-(4) pp., couvertures dominotées de l'époque. Première édition sous ce titre, en partie originale, du texte intégral des Lettres parues dans les Ephémérides du Citoyen de septembre 1767 à juin 1769. Une édition pirate en a été faite en 1769 chez Wilcox à Londres, mais sans la dernière partie Stabilité de l'ordre légal parut dans les Éphémérides de septembre 1768 à juin 1769. L'Avertissement paraît ici pour la première fois. L'ouvrage expose en détail la philosophie morale des physiocrates. A savoir que l'ordre physique social n'est pas autre chose que l'ordre économique ; et que l'ordre économique tout entier est impliqué dans l'économie agricole. Mirabeau pose donc les bases d'un véritable ordre social d'après les loix de la nature (propriété, liberté, restauration de l'ordre) et donne ensuite les moyens de le perpétuer aux citoyens de tous rangs (classe productible et stérile), par l'enseignement, les principes juridiques et sociaux chers aux économistes (devoirs du propriétaire, système d'agriculture, utilité du tableau économique). Bon exemplaire broché, à toutes marges. INED, 3201 ; Tchemerzine-Scheler, IV, p. 756 ; Goldsmiths, 11229 ; Higgs, 6196.

Commerce]
Versailles, 1775. 8pp. Quarto. Printed self-wrappers. Fine. An important treaty between France and Spain, with significant ramifications for their colonial holdings in America. Herein Vergennes and the Conde d'Aranda further define commercial arrangements between the two countries in an attempt to control contraband. This had special impact for the Caribbean basin, where the colonies of both powers were required to ship goods through European ports. Dissatisfaction over this prohibition was a key factor in the Louisiana Rebellion of 1768. This convention was agreed to at Versailles on Dec. 27, 1774. Not in Wroth. DAVENPORT 155.

Tucker, Josiah
Glocester: R. Raikes, 1775. 58,[2]pp. Extra-illustrated with an engraved frontispiece of Westminster Hall. Handsome 20th-century maroon calf, gilt. Small leather bookplate on front pastedown. Internally clean. Very good. The rare first edition of Tucker's detailed reply to Edmund Burke's SPEECH...ON MOVING HIS RESOLUTIONS FOR CONCILIATION WITH THE COLONIES. Josiah Tucker was a British economist and long-standing opponent of colonialism who wrote several tracts arguing that the British should forego their effort to retain the American colonies. In the present tract, Tucker skewers the American spirit of liberty, credit-worthiness, and a variety of other qualities touted by Burke. He responds to criticism from Edmund Burke and labels the colonists as "restive and untractable from the Beginning." He adds that the Americans are generally unreliable, and points out the irony of colonial claims of jeopardized liberty, when the colonists themselves own "vast multitudes of slaves." The Frank Deering copy, with his bookplate. Adams locates only sixteen copies of the first edition. AMERICAN CONTROVERSY 75-145a. SABIN 97353. HOWES T387.

AA. VV.
Torino, Giammichele Briolo, 1775-77 (ma in realtà 1779: l'ultimo fascicolo, il XII del 1777, reca infatti l'indicazione "pubblicato in giugno 1779"). 36 fascicoli mensili (componenti se riuniti 12 voll.) in-8° piccolo (18 x 11). Ogni fascicolo di pp. 80-90 ca., con svariate tavole f.t. incise su rame (alcune in xilografia), complessivamente in numero di 38, incluse 2 tabelle a stampa. Cartonature originali stampate con cornicette decorative ai piatti per le annate 1775-76, e legatura coeva in mezza pelle con titoli e fregi in oro ai dorsi per l'annata 1777, i cui fascicoli sono riuniti in 4 voll. Freschissimi esemplari, intonsi per le annate ancora in fascicoli sciolti. (8488) Raccolta di notevole interesse, pubblicata in concomitanza (o forse in concorrenza) con la analoga raccolta edita a Milano da Marelli e poi da Galeazzi negli stessi anni 1775-77 (a Milano ne uscì poi una seconda serie nel 1781-84, sempre con lo stesso titolo, da non confondere con gli Opuscoli scelti sulle scienze e sulle arti, pubblicati tra il 1778 e il 1803). La raccolta torinese vanta nei frontespizi di contenere, rispetto a quella milanese, l'aggiunta di un "nuovo opuscolo" in ogni volume (nei frontespizi degli ultimi fascic. della raccolta vi è l'indicazione "più di un quarto aumentata"). Tale tipo di pubblicazione ben rispondeva alle necessità di un aggiornamento della cultura scientifica in Italia, traducendo o sintetizzando quasi in contemporanea i più importanti saggi ed articoli apparsi sui periodici italiani stranieri nei campi più disparati delle scienze: meteorologia, agricoltura, anatom … [Click Below for Full Description]

THOMAS PAINE
[THOMAS PAINE].Bound Volume. Pennsylvania Magazine; or American Monthly Museum. Volume 1. January-December 1775. Philadelphia, Pa., R. Aitken, 1775. 5 x 8¼ in. Twelve issues and one supplement, a complete run of the first year. 625, [5] pp., including title signature and the supplement, plus fifteen plates. without a leaf numbered 285-286, but the text uninterrupted and evidently complete (apparently a mis-pagination at the time of printing).Historical BackgroundThe Pennsylvania Magazine was the only magazine issued in the American colonies for most of the crucial years of 1775 and 1776 (the only other one being The Royal American Magazine, which ceased publication in March 1775). It was conceived and founded by Robert Aitken, best known for his work as a printer for the Continental Congress. Aitken hired Thomas Paine to edit the magazine, at the paltry sum of £50 a year, just a few months after the radical writer's arrival in America (in December 1774). Paine would edit the publication from February of 1775 to May of 1776. He was also a major contributor, writing Revolutionary essays, political analyses, poems and descriptions of new inventions. Paine wrote under the initials "A.B." and various other pseudonyms, and sometimes with no byline.Paine scholar William M. Van der Weyde observes that, under Paine's editorship, the magazine "was sprightly and interesting, and had, moreover, real literary merit.... [I]n his early literary work...we may clearly trace the keen mind and forceful pen which were soon to give the world some of its most distinguishe … [Click Below for Full Description]

REVOLUTIONARY WAR
New York, NY, 1775. No binding. Fine. Rivingtons New York Gazetteer...and Weekly Advertiser. Newspaper. Rivington's New York Gazetteer...and Weekly Advertiser, New York, N.Y., July 21, 1775. 4 pp., 11 1/2 x 18 in. While 1776 will remain the most memorable year in American history, 1775 actually marks the moment when the colonists became Americans. Hostilities had already begun, yet the delegates of the Continental Congress still sought to avoid war. On July 8, the Continental Congress approved and sent the Olive Branch Petition to King George III. At the same time, they sent an appeal stating the case directly to the British people. Both attempts failed, and we have found no evidence that the address was even published in England. Here, in Rivington's New York paper, it is published in the first two columns of page one, and the first column of page two. ""Friends, Countrymen, and Brethren! By these, and by every other Appellation that may designate the Ties, which bind us to each other, we entreat your serious Attention to this our second Attempt to prevent their Dissolution.""""Our Enemies charge us with Sedition. In what does it consist? In our Refusal to submit to unwarrantable Acts of injustice and Cruelty?

FIELDING, Sir John, attributed author].
London: Printed for A. Grant and sold by all the Booksellers and News-carriers in Town and Country [1775?]. 8vo., pp. 48, with an engraved frontispiece by Terry of Daniel Perreau threatening to stab Mrs. Rudd; title-page slightly toned, last page slightly soiled, but a very good copy, uncut, in contemporary quarter calf and marbled boards, neatly rebacked.First and only edition of a pamphlet account of 'the unfortunate Perreau brothers', apparently published during their trial for forgery of financial bonds, but before their execution in January 1776. The twins Robert and Daniel Perreau, born in the West Indies to a father of Huguenot extraction, had been sent to England for education, but the death of their parents left them in the lurch. Robert apprenticed to an apothecary, qualified, and became moderately successful, with a good client list, a respectable wife, and a house on Golden Square; while Daniel was rather less successful as a merchant in Guadeloupe. After Daniel returned to England in 1769, they began to speculate heavily on the Exchange, enlisting the assistance of Daniel's common-law wife Margaret Caroline Rudd (née Youngson). Having incurred massive losses, they couldn't risk alerting their creditors by selling assets; their solution was to continue to spend extravagantly while, apparently, beginning to forge bonds, which they continued to do until 1775 when one of the forgeries was spotted at the Drummond bank. Thinking that he could clear the Perreau name by blaming the whole scheme on Rudd, Robert Perreau volunteered to tell all to the magistrates in retur … [Click Below for Full Description]

At the same time, they sent an appeal stating the case directly to the British people. Both attempts failed, and we have found no evidence that the address was even published in England, as it was here, in Rivington's New York newspaper, starting on page one.[SECOND CONTINENTAL CONGRESS].Newspaper. Rivington's New York Gazetteer; or, The Connecticut, Hudson's River, New-Jersey, and Quebec Weekly Advertiser, July 21, 1775. New York, N.Y.: James Rivington. Front- and second-page printing of "The Twelve United Colonies by their Delegates in Congress, to the Inhabitants of Great Britain" (July 8, 1775). 4 pp., 11½ x 18 in.Politically, these addresses were promoted by the more conservative elements in the Congress who wished to exhaust every possibility in finding a peaceful settlement; it was also done in the knowledge that a strong minority of the English public were sympathetic to the plight of the colonies. The entreaty was approved by Congress on July 8, 1775, following the battles of Lexington and Concord in April and Bunker Hill in June. It condemns "the wanton and unnecessary Destruction of Charlestown," and notes that Boston "is now garrisoned by an Army sent not to protect, but to enslave its Inhabitants." An exhaustive litany of wrongs, including a review of the Intolerable Acts.

""being unanimosly agreed...if any of the good people of this town Shall go Counter...it shall be the duty of this Committee publickly to advertise them...all persons must break of all Connections with Such person"" In response to the ""Intolerable Acts"" that Britain had passed to suppress the patriot movement, in October of 1774, the First Continental Congress adopted the Articles of Association, signed by 53 delegates, including George Washington and John Adams. The Articles called for severing economic ties with Britain, banning the slave trade, and improving agriculture and industry within the colonies. During the boycott, the Articles discouraged ""every species of extravagance and dissipation, especially all horse-racing, and all kinds of games, cock fighting, exhibitions of shews, plays, and other expensive diversions and entertainments."" It even frowned on expensive mourning clothes. While it lasted, the boycott was relatively successful in damaging Britain's economy. In 1775, the Crown responded with harsher acts which, rather than having the intended effect, pushed the colonies towards war.

A scarce petition for pay listing 44 members of Captain Luke Drury's Company, 27 of whom were Grafton, Massachusetts-area Minutemen who had marched 36 miles to respond to the Lexington-Concord Alarm on April 19-21, 1775. The list includes Fortune Burnee, a Minuteman of African American and Native American heritage, and his half-brother, Joseph Anthony, who enlisted on April 29th and died in service. Another of the Minutemen listed is the famous clockmaker Aaron Willard.[REVOLUTIONARY WAR].Manuscript Document, Dorchester, Massachusetts, December 30th, 1775, addressed to Massachusetts Treasurer Henry Gardner. 1p. 8 x 13 in. Likely Drury's retained copy from the time, with the signatures all in one hand, though some may be signed with marks & Jonathan Hemenway has signed himself.Petition "to pay Capt Luke Drury the Whole of our Wages (as born on his Muster roll for our Services as Officers & Soldiers in his Company) from the time of our inlistment to the first Day of August for which this shall be your effectual voucher..." Today, the terms minuteman and militiamanare often used interchangeably, but there was a distinction in the eighteenth century. Militia were men in arms formed to protect their towns from foreign invasion. They could designate up to one quarter of their force as minutemen, a specially trained force required to be highly mobile and able to assemble instantly to a call to arms. It is difficult to categorize specific men into either of the two groups based on the surviving historical record. We apply the term here to all of those militia … [Click Below for Full Description]

He made important contributions in the fields of education, moral philosophy, theology, metaphysics, political economy, history and science. He is known for his investigations of carbon dioxide and the co-discovery, with Antoine Lavoisier, of oxygen. As a young man at Daventry academy Priestley read David Hartley's Observations on Man (1749), a long psychological, philosophical and theological treatise that builds on the ideas of Locke and Isaac Newton. Later Priestley wrote that it was the book most responsible for opening his mind to new ideas and claimed that he l … [Click Below for Full Description]

Anville d Jean Babtiste (1697 - 1782) Paris
Artist: Anville d Jean Babtiste ca ; issued in: Paris; date: ca1775 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 19 x 25; - description: Map shows the back sea, the peninsula Krim and the bordering countries; - vita of the artist: Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d'Anville (1697 ?1782), was both a geographer and cartographer who greatly improved the standards of map-making. His maps of ancient geography, characterized by careful, accurate work and based largely on original research, are especially valuable. He left unknown areas of continents blank and noted doubtful information as such; compared to the lavish maps of his predecessors, his maps looked empty. His first serious map, that of Ancient Greece, was published when he was fifteen. At the age of twenty-two, he was appointed one the king's geographers, and began to attract the attention of first authorities. D'Anville's studies embraced everything of geographical nature in the world's literature, as far as he could muster it: for this purpose, he not only searched ancient and modern historians, travelers and narrators of every description, but also poets, orators and philosophers. One of his cherished subjects was to reform geography by putting an end to the blind copying of older maps, by testing the commonly accepted positions of places through a rigorous examination of all the descriptive authority, and by excluding from cartography every name inadequately supported. Vast spaces, which had before

Torino, Giammichele Briolo, 1775-77 (ma in realtà 1779: l'ultimo fascicolo, il XII del 1777, reca infatti l'indicazione "pubblicato in giugno 1779"). 36 fascicoli mensili (componenti se riuniti 12 voll.) in-8° piccolo (18 x 11). Ogni fascicolo di pp. 80-90 ca., con svariate tavole f.t. incise su rame (alcune in xilografia), complessivamente in numero di 38, incluse 2 tabelle a stampa. Cartonature originali stampate con cornicette decorative ai piatti per le annate 1775-76, e legatura coeva in mezza pelle con titoli e fregi in oro ai dorsi per l'annata 1777, i cui fascicoli sono riuniti in 4 voll. Freschissimi esemplari, intonsi per le annate ancora in fascicoli sciolti. (8488) Raccolta di notevole interesse, pubblicata in concomitanza (o forse in concorrenza) con la analoga raccolta edita a Milano da Marelli e poi da Galeazzi negli stessi anni 1775-77 (a Milano ne uscì poi una seconda serie nel 1781-84, sempre con lo stesso titolo, da non confondere con gli Opuscoli scelti sulle scienze e sulle arti, pubblicati tra il 1778 e il 1803). La raccolta torinese vanta nei frontespizi di contenere, rispetto a quella milanese, l'aggiunta di un "nuovo opuscolo" in ogni volume (nei frontespizi degli ultimi fascic. della raccolta vi è l'indicazione "più di un quarto aumentata"). Tale tipo di pubblicazione ben rispondeva alle necessità di un aggiornamento della cultura scientifica in Italia, traducendo o sintetizzando quasi in contemporanea i più importanti saggi ed articoli apparsi sui periodici italiani stranieri nei campi più disparati delle scienze: meteorologia, agricoltura, anatom … [Click Below for Full Description]

A rare survival - unrecorded in the usual databases - of the important first appearance of a new, monopoly-busting late eighteenth-century almanac, issued by publisher Thomas Carnan (1737-88), who had in June 1775 secured a famous legal victory against what was previously considered the exclusive and ever-lasting printing privilege of the Stationers' Company. His success in the Court of Common Pleas was clearly a delicious commercial prospect, and is celebrated on the title of this new work: 'The First Year of ALMANACKS being restored to Freedom from Tyranny and Dulness' Unwilling to be beaten to the punch in the newly liberated almanac business, Carnan evidently produced at least two titles for 1776; this present work (with G.
