        Document signed on parchment, in English. "Exemplification of a common recovery with double vouchers of the messuage & plantation in Blockley late the estate of Morton Garrett."

      Philadelphia Folio (51.5 cm, 20.5"). [1] p.. 1776 Document relating to strife between John Ord and Gunning Bedford (probably not the Constitution signer but rather his cousin; both Bedfords were born in Philadelphia, a few years apart) over a Philadelphia-area property and its rents. Written in March of the "sixteenth year of the reign of" George III and the year of the Revolution, this was filed before Samuel Ashmead, justice of the Court of Common Pleas; the document is indited in a fine, light hand, and signed by Samuel Mifflin, a merchant and landowner who in 1761 had refused election as mayor of the city. All the names involved here have powerful Philadelphia associations. A seal is affixed to the sheet, intended to be removed and used "for sealing of Writs in our Court." Blockley, in which the land in question was located, was a township located in West Philadelphia from about 1677 until its consolidation with the city in 1854. The name has lingered, although it has been superceded in general usage by the broader term "University City. Parchment crisp and untorn, with outermost folded portions lightly spotted; front with early inked title as given above, plus pencilled numerals. An evocative document connected to some very prominent names, in excellent condition, with its seal protected for its intended reuse by a diamond-shaped paper covering.

"Der aus Kalabrien stammende Edelmann Giovanni Francesco Gemelli Careri (1651-1725) hatte 1685-1687 schon Europa bereist, bevor er sich 1693 zu einer Weltreise aufmachte, von der er 1698 zurückkehrte. Er reiste über Ägypten, Palästina, die Türkei, Armenien und Persien nach Indien und Hinterindien, dann nach China, von dort über die Philippinen und Marianen über den Pazifik nach Mexiko und Mittelamerika. Von Kuba aus überquerte er den Atlantik, landete in Spanien kehrte nach Venedig zurück. Seine Reisebeschreibung war publizistisch sehr erfolgreich: zwischen 1700 und 1728 kamen allein sieben italienische Ausgaben heraus. Das Werk wurde ins Englische und Französische übersetzt. Es wurde lange für fiktiv gehalten, jedoch konnte Alexander von Humboldt nachweisen, daß der Autor zumindest in Mexiko gewesen sein wußte. Der Wahrheitsgehalt der gesamten Reisebeschreibung gilt heute überwiegend als erwiesen. Besonders der Bericht über Mexiko (Band 6) wird als frühe und zuverlässige Quelle geschätzt. Als Übersetzer dieser französischen Ausgabe wird neben Louis Francois Dubois de Saint-Gelais machmal auch Eustache Lenoble genannt." ex: Eutiner Landesbibliothek (Griep/ Luber online). Anmerkungen zum Verfasser: "Gemelli-Carreri, Giovanni Francesco, geb. 1651 in Neapel, Rechtsgelehrter, bereiste 1689 die Länder Süd- u. Mitteleuropas, 1693 Ägypten, Palästina, Kleinasien, die Türkei, Armenien, Georgien, Persien, Hindostan, China, 1697 Mexico u. kehrte 1698 über Cadix nach Neapel zurück; seine Reisebeschreibung (Giro del mondo), Neap. 1699-1700, 6 Bde." ex: Pierer's Universal-Lexikon, Band 7. Altenburg 1859, S. 131 "...Gemelli Careri versuchte erneut, Karriere im neapolitanischen Gerichtswesen zu machen, sah sich aber wegen seiner bürgerlichen Herkunft behindert. So beschloss er, 1693 eine Reise rund um die Welt zu unternehmen, die ihn über Malta, Ägypten, das Heilige Land, Konstantinopel, Armenien, Persien und Indien bis nach China, die Philippinen und nach Mexiko führte. Von dort kehrte er mit einem spanischen Schiff nach Europa zurück. 1699 publizierte er in Neapel seinen sechsbändigen Reisebericht Reise um die Welt (Giro intorno al mondo). Gemelli Careri wird oft als erster Tourist bezeichnet. Seine Weltreise wurde lange Zeit für erdichtet gehalten, sie gilt heute jedoch nicht zuletzt wegen ihrer präzisen Detailbeschreibungen als authentisch. ..." ex: wiki "GEMELLI CARERI, Giovanni Francesco. - Nacque a Radicena (dal 1928 Taurianova) presso Reggio di Calabria tra il 15 e il 17 ott. 1648 (Fatica, p. 66). Compiuti i primi studi presso i gesuiti, si laureo il 3 apr. 1670 in utroque iure a Napoli, ove inizialmente presto la sua opera, svolgendo funzioni giudiziarie presso l'amministrazione del Vicereame, dal 1671 al 1685. In quest'ultimo anno, per gravi contrasti, abbandono l'impiego dando inizio al suo primo viaggio al di fuori dei confini del Regno e visitando in soli sei mesi l'Italia, la Francia, l'Inghilterra, i Paesi Bassi e la Germania. Nel 1686 partecipava alla guerra contro i Turchi in Ungheria dove, nel corso della battaglia per la presa di Buda (2 sett. 1686), rimase ferito. Rientrato a Napoli, dopo una breve parentesi ripartiva per l'Ungheria distinguendosi, sotto il comando del duca Carlo V di Lorena, durante la battaglia di Mohacs (12 ag. 1687). Il valore delle sue azioni militari e ben testimoniato dagli attestati e dalle lettere che il G. ricevette dal giovane principe Eugenio di Savoia, dall'ambasciatore spagnolo Carlo Emanuele d'Este marchese di Borgomanero e, soprattutto, dall'imperatore d'Austria Leopoldo I. Tuttavia, nonostante i molteplici encomi per la condotta militare, il G. otteneva dagli Asburgo, come ricompensa dei servigi prestati, la reintegrazione nella magistratura del Regno di Napoli solo per un tempo limitato, due bienni come auditore. A conclusione dei quattro anni (tra il 1689 e il 1693) che lo avevano visto operare a Lecce e all'Aquila, lasciando di se, soprattutto nella citta abruzzese, un ottimo ricordo, il G. si ritrovava di nuovo senza un lavoro soddisfacente. Egli attribui le ragioni e le responsabilita di questa nuova situazione ancora una volta a ignoti avversari. Tutto cio, unito a una grande passione per l'avventura, lo sospinse a intraprendere una nuova avventura, che lo porto a compiere, probabilmente primo nella storia, il giro del mondo via terra. La produzione letteraria del G. e limitata ad appena tre opere. La prima, Relazione delle campagne d'Ungheria, edita a Napoli nel 1689, e la seconda, Viaggi per l'Europa, edita anch'essa a Napoli (nel 1693), ebbero scarso successo e mantennero sostanzialmente nell'anonimato l'autore. Fu la terza, Giro del mondo, in 6 volumi (ibid. 1699-1700), che consegno alla storia il nome del G., rendendolo famoso in tutta Europa. Quando il G., il 13 giugno 1693, dette inizio all'impresa, nelle sue intenzioni non vi era certo il proposito di compiere il giro del mondo. Egli, al contrario, come ebbe occasione di riferire al fratello, un ecclesiastico, prima di partire aveva l'obiettivo di visitare la Terrasanta e il grande Impero cinese. Preso congedo dai suoi piu stretti amici e collaboratori, giunse, dopo aver toccato Malta e Alessandria, al Cairo, dove venne accolto dal console francese in Egitto. Quindi, visitate le piramidi e altri luoghi antichi, si reco a Gerusalemme. Rientrato ad Alessandria, riparti per Costantinopoli. Nella capitale dell'Impero turco fu arrestato dalle autorita locali che accusarono, lui italiano, di spionaggio, mentre visitava i navigli che venivano equipaggiati in vista della guerra contro Venezia. Fu solo grazie all'immediato intervento del console francese che pote riacquistare la liberta. Imbarcatosi per Trebisonda, dopo aver attraversato l'Armenia e la Georgia, il 17 luglio 1694, giunse in Persia a Isfahan, dove pote assistere all'avvento del nuovo scia Husain ibn Sulaiman, aggregandosi, per espresso invito dell'ambasciatore polacco, al seguito diplomatico di quella nazione. Il G. visito anche quelle che sembravano essere le rovine dell'antica citta di Persepoli. Quindi, raggiunta una localita che il G. indica come Bander-Congo, sul Golfo Persico, salpo alla volta dell'India, approdando a Daman il 10 genn. 1695. E, nonostante i grandi conflitti che imperversavano nella regione, tra i principi del Sud dell'India e il Gran Mogol, ottenne da quest'ultimo udienza privata. Rifiutata dal G. la proposta del Gran Mogol di restare al suo servizio, riparti per Goa, dove incontro il vicere portoghese per circa due ore. Da Goa, via mare, il 4 ag. 1695 raggiunse Macao, dove fu accolto nel convento dei padri agostiniani spagnoli. Quindi, si reco a Canton, il 19 agosto, tra la meraviglia sia dei francescani spagnoli, sia dei gesuiti portoghesi. Entrambi lo credettero, malgrado le ripetute smentite del G., inviato segreto del papa mandato in Cina a prendere informazioni tanto sugli ordini religiosi quanto sui problemi attinenti la giurisdizione episcopale. Nonostante cio, i frati lo aiutarono a trovare una guida e un domestico per raggiungere Pechino, dove fece il suo ingresso il 6 nov. ...

Sabin 65444. Thomas, Stephens and Jones 20a. Adams 77-75a. Only later editions in Goldsmiths. Essays of some significance in Anglo-American history. 'Price had started writing the work early in November 1775 and it had taken him the better part of the winter to complete it. The pamphlet's popularity, apart from its intrinsic merits, was due to the fact that it was a spirited defence of the American colonists published at a time when relations between the colonies and the Mother Country were deteriorating to the point of rebellion. The first part examines the nature of liberty, the principles of government, and the circumstances in which one society can claim authority over another. The second discusses whether war with America could be justified and whether Britain had any prospects of success. In the Conclusion Price summarizes a speech which the Earl of Sherburne had made in the House of Lords in the debate on the American Prohibitory Bill.' [Thomas et al. p.56]. Price had for several years before the outbreak of hostilities been sympathetic to the cause of the American colonists. As a non-conformist he had long championed the cause of the freedom of worship and been disappointed in the lack of progress made towards it in England. For this reason he was less likely to support the establishment and the conventions of government as they had developed in his own country. In particular he believed that government had no part to play in religion. His theories of civil society, inspired by Locke, and based on the idea of implicit contract, took seriously the claims that political society is the creation of all> its members. It followed naturally from this that Price was the enemy of imperialism since imperialism involved claims to rule a community which did not derive from the will or consent of the constituent peoples. Price's support of the American colonists made him almost at once one of the best known men in England. 'The pamphlet provoked an extensive controversy. Some thirty pamphlets appeared from some of the best known controversialists of the day: including Adam Ferguson, John William Fletcher, Henry Goodricke, Richard Hey, John Lind, James Macpherson, John Shebbeare, and John Wesley. The City of London made Price a Freeman in recognition of his services to the cause of liberty. The pamphlet was translated into French, Dutch and German. It marked Price's emergence as a figure of national, indeed international, importance.' [Thomas et al. p.56]. The Additional Observations> 'is divided into three parts. In the first Price extends the analysis and the assessment of the value of liberty that he had given in the earlier pamphlet and points to what he believes are the tendencies that threaten the enjoyment of it. Among these he includes the general indifference on the part of the public to political matters, the diminution of the power and influence of the Commons, failure to secure triennial Parliaments, the acceptance of a standing army, the tolerance of a high level of public indebtedness, lack of vigilance in the control of public expenditure, the dangers implicit in the conduct of the Commons over the Middlesex election, and the growth in the power of the Crown through having the East India Company thrown 'into its hands'.' [Thomas et al. p.81].

        [COLONEL ARNOLD WHO COMMANDED THE PROVINCIAL TROOPS SENT TO QUEBEC THROUGH THE WILDERNESS OF CANADA AND WAS WOUNDED IN STORMING THAT CITY UNDER GENERAL MONTGOMERY]

      [London: Thomas Hart, March 26, 1776].. Engraved mezzotint, 13 x 9 3/4 inches. Trimmed to the image, lacking the caption and imprint information. A bit of light creasing and a few small, closed edge tears. About very good. Matted and framed. This attractive British mezzotint is the first portrait print of Benedict Arnold, who achieved renown for his successes as an American officer in the early years of the Revolution, but whose lasting reputation is as the most famous traitor in American history. The print depicts Arnold at the 1775 Battle of Quebec. He is shown from the knees up, dressed in an elaborate and neat uniform, his outstretched right arm pointing toward Quebec, which is shown in the background. The Battle of Quebec occurred on December 31, 1775, with the American forces led by Arnold and Richard Montgomery, and was an attempt to launch an early attack on British forces and to enlist French Canadians to the American cause. It failed badly, and would be the only American attempt to take control of Canada during the American Revolution. The American attack came after a long and difficult march to Quebec, and Arnold (and his men) would have been in much worse physical and sartorial condition than is depicted in this portrait. This mezzotint of Benedict Arnold is one of a series of fictitious portraits of military leaders done in London by R. Purcell (under the pseudonym "C. Corbutt"). Trimming mezzotints to the image was a common practice in the 18th century. CRESSWELL 9. THE ENGLISH SATIRICAL PRINT: THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION 51. BM CATALOGUE OF PRINTS 5331.

Toutes tranches marbrées. Coins très légèrement frottées. Rare ouvrage devenu une référence en minéralogie et en gemmologie. cette narration de voyage dans le palatinat, soutenu par l'électeur Palatin, est riche en observations mineralogiques de plusieurs sortes. Suite à des considérations géologiques sur la rive gauche du Rhin, l'auteur décrit les fossiles et la nature des agates et jaspes trouvés dans les champs, les mines de mercure, leur constitution géologique et leur fonctionnement, la mine de cuivre, la mine d'agate dans les environs d'Oberstein. La description de la mine d'Agate laisse alors de côté la narration de voyage et donne lieu à un long traité sur la formation des agates, leurs couleurs et l'origine minéralogique de ces couleurs, leur dureté, et la façon dont on travaille ces agates à Oberstein. Il s'agit de la première description scientifique des agates. Le voyage reprend alors avec des considérations sur d'anciens volcans et des montagnes de basalte, près de Bonn. L'auteur, historien, fut secrétaire de Voltaire durant cinq années à Berlin et devint directeur du cabinet d'histoire naturelle de Manheim. Tampon de bibliothèque (petite chouette) sur la première garde.

Tail headdress of Volume III threadbare. 7 corners bumped. Friction. The book is an attack and a critical review of the Treaty of tolerance Voltaire. The work was well received by both critics (Voltaire, d'Alembert) the public. The author demonstrated not only an argument nourished and erudite, but without pedantry and always with impartiality, that Voltaire applauded himself. Letters are not a defense of the church, but religion. As for style, Abbée Guenée establishes a dialogue with Voltaire, and his intention is clear, demonstrative, and not sententious. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Reliure en pleine basane blonde d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Petis manques en tête. Coiffe de queue du tome III élimée. 7 coins émoussés. Frottements. L'ouvrage est une attaque et un commentaire critique du Traité de la tolérance de Voltaire. L'oeuvre fut bien accepté tant par ses détracteurs (Voltaire, D'alembert) que le public. L'auteur y fait montre, non seulement d'une argumentation nourrie et érudite, mais sans pédanterie et toujours avec impartialité, ce que Voltaire applaudit lui-même. Les Lettres ne sont pas une défense de l'église, mais de la religion. Quant au style, l'abbée Guenée établit un dialogue avec Voltaire, et son propos est clair, démonstratif, et nullement sententieux.

Complete with plate on page 74 showing sign language alphabet. [55]-104 (49 pp.), 5 1/4 x 8 1/4 in. With articles on "Arguments against playing at Cards on the Lord's day," a "Method of Manufacturing Gunpowder," and "Dumb Speech, or the Art of Conversing by the Fingers only, as well in the Dark as in the Light.""Monthly Intelligence" covers the House of Commons Address to the King:"we have long lamented the condition of our unhappy fellow subjects in America; seduced from their allegiance, by the grossest misrepresentations, and the wicked and most insidious pretences, they have been made the instruments of the ambition and traiterous designs of those dangerous men, who have led them step by step to the standard of rebellion, who have now assumed the powers of sovereign authority, which they exercise in the most despotic and arbitrary manner, over the persons and properties of this deluded people." (pp. 91-92)Also, more than 10 pages on"General SCHUYLER'S account of this expedition to Tryon County (New York)" On December, 30, 1775, Schuyler was ordered to disarm disaffected inhabitants. The Continental Congress were so highly satisfied with his conduct in that delicate and meritorious service, as to declare, by a special resolution, that he had executed his trust and fidelity, prudence, and dispatch; and they ordered a publication of the narrative of his march in the depth of winter, into the regions bordering on the middle and upper Mohawk. This narrative and correspondence runs through last January, and recounts his movements, talks with the Mohawk Indians about the Patriot Cause, and much more. In part, "We beg of you brothers, to remember the engagement which was made with the Twelve United Colonies at our Interview last summer, as we then engaged to open the path of peace, and to keep it undefiled from blood.You assured us, brothers, that if any (Tories, Redcoats) were found in our neighborhood inimical to us, that you would consider them as enemies. The Six Nations then supposed that the son of Sir William [Johnson] was pointed at by that expression." (pp. 92-104).ConditionStab-stitched, disbound; last two leaves loose; some small marginal chips well clear of text; overall very good to fine condition.

        The trials on the informations which in pursuance of an Order of the House of Commons, were filed by His Majesty's Attorney General against Richard Smith, Esq. and Thomas Brand Hollis, Esq. for having been guilty of notorious bribery, and thereby procuring themselves to be elected and returned Burgesses to serve in Parliament for the Borough of Hindon, tried by a special jury on Tuesday the 12th of March, 1776. At the Assize holden at Salisbury for the County of Wilts; before the Honourable Sir Beaumont Hotham, Knt. one of the Barons of His Majesty's Court of Exchequer. Taken in short-hand by Joseph Gurney

      London: sold by G. Kearsley and M. Gurney. n.d. [1776]. 4to., 31 + (1)pp., small old inkstamp on lower blank margin of title, repeated on one other leaf margin, well bound in late 19th century half calf over marbled boards, gilt lettered. A very good copy. First edition: very scarce. An interesting, and for Hollis himself, a pretty disastrous event in his political career. Thomas Brand Hollis (ca. 1719 - 1804) developed connections among dissenters, political radicals and in the intellectual and charitable world. He was especially concerned for religious liberty and supported campaigns against the Test and Corporation Acts. 'Above all, Brand Hollis advocated political reform. His first foray ended in humiliating disaster. Hoping to promote the cause in parliament he purchased the rotten borough of Hindon, Wiltshire, at the 1774 general election, but the election was challenged. He was convicted of corruption, unseated, fined 1000 marks, and gaoled for six months. Undeterred, he joined the parliamentary reform movement precipitated by the American War of Independence. He was a founder member of the Society for Constitutional Information in 1780, and as a member of the Essex and Dorset county associations collaborated with Christopher Wyvill of Yorkshire, whose modest programme of reform at the St Alban's tavern conference in March 1780 he supported without success. Brand Hollis was especially influential on the Westminster Committee, which appointed him and Jebb to a subcommittee authorized to consider general electoral matters. Using arguments drawn from James Burgh and other Commonwealthsmen, they persuaded it to recommend a complete recasting of the representative system, including annual parliaments, equal electoral districts, universal male suffrage, and the ballot. In 1788 Brand Hollis was a founder member of the Revolution Society'. [Colin Bonwick in ODNB].

Twenty five engraved maps illustrate the distances and stops along the way between major Italian cities. Many of the maps are embellished with images of sailing ships, gondolas and depict hills, mountains, rivers, lakes and towns along the path. The text, in both Italian and French, details the directions of each map and a section at the end spells out tolls and taxes. The title suggests that this is a new edition, however, we find no indication of an earlier edition and Fossati Bellani makes no mention of one either. This is a rare book, with OCLC locating just one copy in the US at the Getty. Although one signature has become loose and the spine is a bit worn , this copy remains in appealing original condition.

        Original Hand-Coloured Aquatint Engraving From] SIR WILLIAM HAMILTON'S Collection of Etruscan, Greek, and Roman Antiquities. ]

      Naples 1766-1776 - A single aquatint plate drawn and engraved after the original pieces in the Hamilton collection. The colour aquatint shows a confrontation between two men, one brandishing a sword, with cloak draped over his left arm, the other attempting to ward him off, a stylized tree flanks the illustration. The background is black, the image coloured with shades of tan, terra-cotta and gold. Printed on a single folio sheet measuring approximately 20" x 13", the image approximately 11.5" X 9.5"., Now presented in cream mounting boards 22" x18" behind clear mylar. A very fine plate in an excellent state of preservation. A BEAUTIFUL AND IMPRESSIVE PLATE FROM A MASTERPIECE OF CLASSIC ART RENDERINGS AND PUBLICATION. Hamilton served as British envoy to the court of Naples where he began collecting Greek vases and other antiquities immediately upon arriving at his post. In 1766–67 he published a volume of engravings of his collection entitled A Collection of Etruscan, Greek, and Roman antiquities from the cabinet of the Honble. Wm. Hamilton. A further three volumes were produced in 1769–76. Josiah Wedgwood the potter and porcelain maker drew great inspiration from the reproductions presented in Hamilton's volumes. While widely recognized for their beauty, the reproductions from Hamilton's vases have become evidence of the irreconcilable problem of neoclassicism in the Romantic period. Significant changes in the way the vases were engraved over a span of thirty or forty years demonstrate how an immutable collection of objects is subject to radical shifts in representation in response to the social and artistic styles of the time.

Five (French, English, German, Dutch, Latin) titles, each with a different engraved vignette, five (Dutch, German, English, French, Latin) letters to the reader, half title (in five languages, Bayreutse Marmer on top) [14] pp., 78 figs on 13 plates (1-13); half-title (do., Wurtenbergsche Marmer [12] pp., 72 figs on 12 plates (14-25); half title (do., Neresheimsche Marmer), [6] pp., 45 figs on five plates (26-30); half title do., Durlachse Marmer) [8] pp., 36 figs on six plates (31-36); half title (do.

In total 86 descriptive text pages, 73 beautifully engraved hand-coloured plates containing 409 figures of marble. Contemporary full mottled calf; spine with five raised bands, richly gilt ornamented compartments and one red morocco label with gilt title. All edges red.l Second edition of this magnificent and outstanding colour plate book, depicting an almost infinitely-varied series of marbles and allied ornamental stones from deposits in Germany and nearby countries, including Belgium, Switzerland, and Italy. Apparently each of the rectangular panels represents the appearance of a polished slab, with most plates depicting six such pieces, but others two, four, and as many as nine. While one is immediately captivated by the richness and depth of the watercolour painting, often heightened by the application of opaque white for veinlets, it can be seen that under each painting lies a complex, lightly-incised network of lines, almost like rouletting, over which the colours have been laid. Only a few copies of this second edition are known to possess a maximum of 98 plates, of which this copy has the vast majority. Only one copy with 98 plates has ever been auctioned. And one truly exceptional copy with 100 plates has recently become known. Auction records from for the past 50 years are very scarce and demonstrate a large variety in the number of plates (i.e. 23, 30, 42, 68 and only one with 73, like ours). We believe this proves that the work was issued in parts by subscription, and accounts for all copies containing less than the maximum number of plates. The maximum number is listed in the British Museum Catalogue and in Brunet only. The few other copies recorded all lack 20 or more plates, usually towards the end of the book. This copy is remarkable for having a part of the Italian section, with six plates. The text appears in four modern languages in rectangular columns and the Latin text at the bottom. The Latin and German descriptive text is by Casimir Christoph Schmidel (1718-1792). Each section has its own title and preface; the accompanying text ends with plate 73. The next section "Florentinische Marmer" is only denoted by the caption of plate 74. Brunet IV may be in error listing text up to plate 75. Most plates, except a few, are tissue guarded. All pages clean and plates with colouring very fresh and vivid. A fine copy. Brunet IV, col. 1243; V, col. 1465 (with 98 plates). Cat BM(NH), pp. 1243, 2340 (with 98 plates); Landwehr, 1; Sinkankas, 7281 (with 54 plates)..

        De Anima brutorum commentaria

      1776. SOLDINI, Franceso Maria. De Anima Brutorum commentaria curiousum nobii Natura ingenium dedit. [2], 256 pp. Illustrated with engraved title-page printed in both sepia and azure, 8 full-page engraved plates printed in azure and 7 elaborate historiated initials printed in sepia. 8vo., 220 x 145 mm, bound in contemporary red Augsburg brocade paper with a gilt floral motief. [Florence: Cambiagi Regius, 1776]. |~||~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, a finally bound copy of this exotic example of eighteenth-century Italian colour-printing. The subject matter is a mysterious bestiary, illustrated in form with colour-printed copper-plates incorporating elements of mythology, animal psychology, comparative psychology, zoology, evolution and creationism. Soldini's De Anima Brutorum, issued nearly a century before Darwin's theories of evolution, earned a place on the Index Librorum Prohibitarum (probably on account of its pro-evolutionary position). In one astonishing plate appear two bizarre prehistoric beasts (one of which can only be described as an eight-legged crocodile-rooster) and a rhinoceros (drawn after Albrecht Durer). There are plates of shellfish and amphibians invading the land from the sea (obviously anti-creationistic), and several plates of various birds and mammals, including a hairy ape with distinctly human features. Aside from some scattered staining, mostly marginal, this is an exceptionally large uncut copy in a gorgeous decorative binding, near fine overall. PROVENANCE: Sepia toned bookplate signed "Mont. Spreti" on the front paste-down. Brunet V, 427. Eales, Cole Library 1941.

        IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, NOVEMBER 1, 1776. ORDERED, THAT THE FOLLOWING ADDRESS FROM THE GENERAL COURT OF THIS STATE TO THE OFFICERS AND PRIVATE SOLDIERS WHO ARE GONE FROM THENCE AND ARE SERVING IN THE AMERICAN ARMY, BE PRINTED IN TWO THOUSAND HAND-BILLS.

      [Boston: Printed by Benjamin Edes], Nov. 2, 1776. - Broadside, 15 x 9½ inches. Several folds, minor staining, fold lines reinforced with archival tape on verso. Good. Early November, 1776, was a dark moment for the American side in the Revolution. Washington had been routed from New York, the victory at Trenton had yet to occur, and the ability of the young United States to succeed seemed questionable. This important inspirational Revolutionary War broadside issued by the Massachusetts House of Representatives only four months after the Declaration of Independence, sought to rally the Patriot cause. The address roundly denounces Great Britain and its government in polemical language in the style of the preamble of the Declaration. It also pledges the support of the American army by the General Court of Massachusetts, emphasizes the importance of Massachusetts soldiers, and urges them to re- enlist. Massachusetts soldiers were vital in the Revolutionary War effort, practically the backbone of the Continental Army. However, desertion had become a major issue by October 1776, and this message was issued as part of an effort by the Massachusetts government to stem the tide of desertion as well as motivate new recruits for the war effort. This fiery exhortation to take up arms against the British Crown reads, in part: ^"When the tyrants of the earth began to transgress the sacred line of property, and claim their fellow men as slaves, and to exercise lawless power over them, the intentions of government were subverted, war in defence of the dignity of human nature was introduced, and men began to take the field of battle on behalf of freedom . For the free exercise of liberty, more especially in the worship of that almighty Being who supported them in the greatest distress, our venerable ancestors came to this land when it was a savage and dangerous wilderness, terrible to the civilized eye. Here they toiled and bled, with the pleasing hope of their posterity’s enjoying that freedom for which they encountered every difficulty, and braved every danger, and could their virtue have been inherited with the fruit of their toil, and their simplicity of manners and integrity of heart been transmitted to all their posterity, America would now have been the seat of peace and plenty. But such has been the avarice of some, and the ambition of others, amongst us, that the King and Parliament of Great-Britain have been fatally persuaded to claim this whole continent, with its three millions of inhabitants, as their own property, and to be at their disposal. In opposition to this unjustifiable claim most obviously founded in tyranny, after loyally petitioning, and dutifully remonstrating without effect, you have gallantly taken the field, and the salvation of your country, the happiness of future generations, as well as your own, depends upon your noble exertions." ^The American soldiers are promised supplies and every bit of support from their new government, but warned of the dangers of desertion in the face of the impending crisis: "exert every nerve in this glorious struggle; for should you for any reason quit your posts, and disgracefully turn your backs on your enemies, wild carnage, barbarous and bloody desolation must spread like a hideous torrent over your ruined country." The document also promises glory in posterity for the Continental Army, reminding the soldiers that their names will be "honourably preferred to the end of time" and that "each generation as it rises, shall learn to speak the same of those worthies, who nobly dared to face that death and despite that danger, which stood between them and their country's happiness." ^The message ends by reiterating to the soldiers that their government stands firmly behind them, promising "comfortable supplies and necessary reinforcements" during their fight for freedom, at the end of which the American army will be "crowned with a glorious victory, and return honourably from the field, bringing deliverance to distressed America." ^An el
