Manque le faux-titre du tome I. Bel exemplaire, bien frais. En compilant plusieurs histoires contemporaines de l'invasion du Pérou par les Espagnols, mais surtout l'ouvrage de Las Casas (La découverte des Indes Occidentales), Marmontel a réalisé ce roman assez mélodramatique dans le goût de l'époque, et qui conte la destruction de l'empire du Pérou. Sa préface remarquable stigmatise la vénalité et le fanatisme des conquérants espagnols, même si quelques hommes d'église dénoncèrent les exactions des soldats et chefs de l'armée.

         Vocabulaire des termes de marine anglois et françois, en deux parties ; orné de planches, avec une explication des figures qui y sont contenues, & des définitions de quelques termes de marine, principalement ceux de gréement.

      Paris, Imprimerie Royale, 1777, plein veau de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, armes de Louis XVI au centre des plats, coiffes et coins habilement restaurés. -Page 7 de la seconde partie reliée par erreur entre les pp. 2 et 3. - 2 parties en 1 vol. in-4 de XXII-(2)-88-7-(1) pp. + 4 pl. h.t. et 287 pp. + 27 pl. h.t. ; Exemplaire bien complet du feuillet d'errata.Edition originale.Conlon 77 : 1183 ; Polack 5880 (collation erronée) ; Le livre maritime au Siècle des Lumières, p. 65.Dès l'âge de 19 ans, D. Lescallier (Lyon, 1743 - 1822) fut envoyé en Angleterre "pour y apprendre la langue". Il y séjourna trois ans. A son retour, il intégra l'administration de la Marine, fut écrivain de marine (1765), élève commissaire (1767), puis commissaire des ports et arsenaux (1777). Grâce à d'Estaing, il fut chargé par Sartine de rédiger un dictionnaire de marine franco-anglais. Pour cela, il effectua une mission en Angleterre et voyagea ensuite en mer baltique, en Russie, en Suède, sur de gros vaisseaux marchands anglais. Ce n'est qu'après cette longue expérience qu'il publia son Vocabulaire, à l'Imprimerie Royale, pendant la Guerre d'Indépendance américaine. Il fit par la suite une brillante carrière d'administrateur des colonies sous l'Ancien Régime et la Révolution et fut nommé sous l'Empire préfet maritime de Gênes (1806), du Havre (1808-1810) et consul général aux États-Unis (1810).L'auteur précise sa méthode dans son introduction : "J'ai composé ce vocabulaire de deux parties ; la première est une explication en françois, de tous les termes anglois, par ordre alphabétique, avec les phrases nécessaires pour indiquer toutes leurs acceptions : la seconde partie rend pareillement en anglois tous les termes de la Marine françoise. J'ai tâché de ne rien oublier de ce qui regarde la construction, le gréement, la manœuvre, l'amarrage, la navigation, le pilotage, les grades & emplois militaires & civils des deux marines, &c. [ ] Pour rendre ce simple vocabulaire plus intéressant & plus clair, j'ai placé des figures à tous les articles qui m'en ont paru susceptibles, afin de fixer davantage la signification des mots, & d'y mettre en passant un moyen d'instruction aux commençans, qui trouveront une explication du contenu de chaque planche. Dans ces planches, & dans l'explication que j'en ai donnée, je me suis plus attaché au gréement qu'à la construction."Ces 31 planches, dessinées par Lescallier, sont dûes au célèbre graveur Yves Marie Le Gouaz, beau-frère d'Ozanne. Le Gouaz est surtout réputé pour être le graveur du recueil des "Nouvelles vues et perspectives des ports de France", dessinées par Ozanne.Comme le souligne Lescallier, les planches de Le Gouaz sont élégantes et précises.

         Illustratio Systematis Sexualis Linnaei ... An Illustration of the Sexual System of Linnaeus

      London: published and sold by the author, 1777. One volume bound in two, folio. (20 3/4 x 14 1/4 inches). Engraved frontispiece, engraved title, 4 engraved plates of botanical details, 104 engraved plates, each in two states (uncolored and finely hand colored; 66 of the hand colored plates also before letters), all by and after Miller. Extra-illustrated with 9 additional plates, each in uncolored and colored states (one before letters). 104 plates, each in two states: hand-coloured before letters and uncoloured with letters, with 9 additional plates, each in two states as above. 1 p. list of subscribers, 2 pp. errata at back of second volume. Contemporary English red straight-grained morocco gilt in the style of Staggemeier and Welcher, covers with wide decorative borders of fillets enclosing drawer-handle roll, decorative corner-pieces, spine in eight compartments with double-raised bands decorated in gilt, green silk endpapers, gilt edgesA fantastic example of the first edition, with the plates in both coloured and uncoloured states, in a glorious contemporary binding and extra-illustrated with plates not usually found.The usual requirement is for 104 plates present in two states and 4 plates in only one state. The present copy includes all 108 plates from the first edition present in two states. The work is further enhanced by the presence of the contemporary addition of the "extra-illustrations." These include the "Tea Plant" plate, also in two states, inserted with the descriptive text leaf in the correct position in Linnæan class XIII in volume I; the 7 "Icones Novæ" plates (dated 1780 in the imprint) in two states; and at the end of the second volume, an unrecorded plate of a climbing lily (Gloriosa Superba), also in two states (the uncolored state on wove paper watermarked "1794," the handcolored state before letters).The work was issued in 20 parts between 1770 and 1777. According to the list of subscribers, 105 copies were ordered by 85 individuals. The uncolored plates invariably included lettering for scientific purposes, while the handcolored plates are often without lettering and the vast majority are printed using a warm brown ink with the intent of making the images more aesthetically pleasing. The plants described and illustrated came in the main from Dr. John Fothergill's famous garden in Upton, Essex. Fothergill was an enthusiastic supporter and indeed superintendent of the work, but refused Miller's attempt to dedicate the work to him. He felt that dedications were "more productive of envy to the patron, than of advantage to the author."John Miller (1715-1780), born Johann Sebastian Müller in Nuremberg, came to England in 1744 and remained there for the rest of his life. He was a botanical artist and engraver of considerable repute and came to the attention of the great naturalist Linnæus through the connection of John Ellis. Linnæus had nothing but praise for the artist, stating that the plates were "more beautiful and more accurate" than any he had ever seen. Referring to the work, Lettsom in his 1789 Memoirs of John Fothergill writes: an "immense work of botany wherein the pencil of Miller illustrated, in a style of unprecedented elegance, the sexual system of Linnæus."Dunthorne 207; Great Flower Books (1990) p.120; Henrey III, 1153; Nissen BBI 1372; Sprague 'John Sebastian Miller's Icones Novae' in Journal of Botany , vol. 74 (London: 1936), pp.208-209; cf.

         The Town Book of Smallburgh.

      1777-1837 345pp ms. in various, occasionally difficult hands, on 174 lined folio leaves with Britannia watermark; text a little faded at times, occasional small marginal tears, light worming to lower margins and upper margin of final 20 leaves, paper a little fragile but largely internally good & clean. Contemp. vellum, orig. ms. title on front board faded almost entirely, modern ms. title at upper margin; expertly and almost imperceptibly rebacked.An invaluable primary source recording the poor rate collections, disbursements and expenses for the village of Smallburgh in the County of Norfolk over a period of 60 years. The first page of accounts begin: 'The disbursements of me Isaac Saul Overseer from Michaelmas 1777 to Lastern 1778 as follows weekly collection for 27 weeks'. Recipients include Bretts boy, widow Roll, Window Swanton, and John Cubitt whose family appear regularly throughout the ledger with one relative, George Cubitt, noted as being an Overseer. The disbursements also include expenses incurred by the town: 'Mr Cook's bill for cloathing for the poor', 'paid Robt. Pratt for making a coat & jacket for the girl Emma', 'spent on the town meeting', 'writing the town's accounts', 'letter from Norwich about Nickelson's death', and other payments to those 'in want': 'John Chapman temporary relief having met with an accident from a till'. The record of disbursements is followed by 'a rate made for & towards the relief of the poor of the Parish of Smallburgh', listing all those contributing to the village poor relief fund. In 1777/1778 Francis Read contributed £50, Robert Archer £38, Thomas Archer £25 and William Postle £22. The majority of the 38 contributors pay a rate of £5 or under, mostly only £1 or £2. The books are almost always balanced. In 1778/79 £77.16.10 was disbursed and £77.14.11 collected. In 1783/84 £137.4.7 was disbursed and £138.12.0 collected. By 1826/27 £315.8.9 was disbursed and only £280.9.11 collected; the 'book' was 'in debt' by £34.18.9.In 1801 Smallburgh, 14 miles North East of Norwich, was a village of 63 houses, 85 families and 699 people. A workhouse or 'house of industry' was built in 1725 and extended in 1836. In 1821 it contained 131 males and 107 females; an entry in this volume notes a payment for 'carrying the poor to the house of industry'. Covering a period of 60 years, this ledger provides an exceptionally detailed account of all the payments and collections made on behalf of the villagers, who contributed funds and who received them, either as a person 'in want' or those contributing to the administration of the village.

         A Manuscript Record, headed 'Calendar', of Thirty Five Nude Male Fell Races, 1777-1812.

      [c.1824] 10pp ms. in different hands on both sides of 4to leaves, with additional blanks; sl. dusted. Sewn.The first three leaves are on unmarked paper with the first three pages seemingly in an earlier hand. The remaining leaves are watermarked 1824. A fascinating document recording the rather neglected sport of nude racing in the later 18th and early 19th centuries. Although 'nude' or 'naked' is not evident in ink, the record for race number five indicates the bare nature of the racing. Held on December 24th (one may have presumed that this was a summer sport), and raced over 10 miles at Gisburn, Yorkshire, the entry notes that 'the Shephard did not accompany Stump above 3 miles before he gave up. When Stump put on his clothes and ran the remainder of the race at his own ease'. In Bill Smith's book Studmarks on the Summits, 1985, he quotes the following passage in Lancashire Legends, by J. Harland and T.T. Wilkinson, headed 'Foot Races by Nude Men': 'A correspondent in Notes and Queries says: "During the summer of 1824 I remember seeing at Whitworth in Lancashire two races, at different periods, of this description. On one occasion two men ran on Whitworth Moor, with only a small cloth or belt around the loins. On the other occasion the runners were six in number, stark naked, the distance being seven miles, or seven times round the moor. There were hundreds, perhaps thousands, of spectators, men and women, and it did not appear to shock them as being anything out of the ordinary course of things. It is with reference to this usage, no doubt, that the Lancashire riddle says - As I was going over Rooley Moor, Rooley Moor shaked, I saw four-and-twenty men running stark nak'd; The first was the last and the last was the first The answer is - The twenty four spokes of a wheel".' The races recorded here appear to have taken place throughout the year and across numerous locations largely in Lancashire and Yorkshire. It is well recorded that nude racing took place on Kersal Moor, Lancashire, where many of the races here took place. Other locations include the Knutsford and Doncaster courses, Toll Bar Road, Scarborough Sands, a common near Cardiff, Boston Moor, and others. The competitors are almost entirely listed under nicknames or just surnames. Stump, a great champion by all accounts, The Old Soul, Duck Taylor, The Pie Lad, Wood, Pollitt, Seddon and Beal, amongst others, are all recorded as competitors. One noticeable exception is number 28 which notes a race on October 12th, 1807, between the champion Wood and the celebrated pedestrian Captain Barclay. Sadly nothing of the race is recorded here but the American Turf Register and Sporting Magazine reported that 'they ran over New Market race course, for a large wager; Wood was to go fifty miles further than the Captain in twenty-four hours; Wood ran eight hours successively with a stop, a scheme then fell among the gamblers'. The manuscript entries themselves vary between four and 12 lines giving the date, location, course length, participants, and more often than not, the wager. On July 14th 1806, Wood and Pollitt ran five rounds over the Doncaster course for the enormous sum of 400 guineas: 'started at 1 O'Clock and won by Wood beating Pollitt a distance ... Pollitt stated to his friends that he would run it 55 minutes which he did in 53 minutes [the winning time was 51.24 minutes], the distance they ran was 9 miles 1 quarter and 3 yards. We may say that no man in England can beat Pollitt & (?) Wood on their day'. The fact that so much money was at stake meant that disputes were inevitable. On November 22nd, 1788 the record for race six (Stump against time) shows that 'he undertook to run 4 miles over Knutsford course in 21 minutes for £100 a side. He performed this race in 20 minutes 13 seconds as was proved by several time pieces but Jon Jackson one of the umpires not starting his watch a dispute arose and the wager was disputed'. The final race recorded here is dated 1812. Although nude running continued into the 1820s, the attitude towards public displays of bare flesh was changing as conservative sensibilities and pre-Victorian prudery escalated.

         Sammelband mit 5 kleinen Schriften. in neuer verbesserter (d.h. zweiter) Auflage. (Herausgegeben von Johann Lorenz Benzler mit Einverständnis des Autors).

      - Bremen, J. H. Cramer, 1777. 116; 96; 20; 55, (1); 24 S. Hldrbd der Zeit mit floraler Rückenvergoldung (leicht berieben, Vorsatz gebräunt und mit 1 St., sonst gering braunfleckig). Die hier zusammengestellten Texte Justus Mösers sind offenbar selten einzeln, sondern meist vom Verlag aus in Sammelbänden ausgegeben worden: 1. Der Werth wohlgewogner Neigungen und Leidenschaften.- Goed. IV/1,43,9,9; eine Schrift "über Tugend, Rechtschaffenheit und Gottesfurcht", zugleich ein Denkmal der Freundschaft für den verstorbenen Joh. Friedrich von dem Busche. 2. Harlekin oder Vertheidigung des Grostesk-Komischen.- Goed. IV/1,44,9,10; bedeutende theatertheoretische Schrift von weitreichender Wirkung auf die deutsche Schauspielkunst und den Sturm und Drang, eine "satyrhafte Apologie" des Harlekin, der von Gottsched und der Neuberin von der Bühne verbannt worden war, eine Verteidigung auch des Komischen und der Oper; gegenüber dem Erstdruck um viele sinnentstellende Druckfehler bereinigt und vom Autor um die Vorrede, das Stoßgebet des Harlekins und 5 Anmerkungen vermehrt. 3. Unterthänigste Vorstellung und Bitte Mein Joseph Patridgen Generalentrepreneur der Winterquartierslustbarkeiten bey der Hohen Alliirten Armee . in punkto des Abzugs von 1 p.C. (per Cent).- Nicht bei Goedeke; in dieser Geburtstagsschrift für den alliierten Feldherrn im Siebenjährigen Krieg, den Herzog Ferdinand von Braunschweig, schlüpft Möser erstmals in die Rolle des Harlekin. Als Landesdeputierter des Hochstifts Osnabrück ist er in das Winterquartier der Alliierten gereist, um wenigsten "1 p. C." Nachlaß von den Kriegskontributionen zu erreichen. In seiner amüsanten Schrift läßt Möser den imaginierten Theaterleiter J. Patridge in Gestalt des Harlekins auftreten und mit bewegenden Worten die traurige Lage seiner Theatertruppe beklagen; in Wahrheit spricht der Abgesandte Möser für sein kleines, notleidendes Land. Mösers geistreicher Auftritt wurde so positiv aufgenommen, daß ihm "eine halbe Million" nachgelassen wurden und das waren weit mehr als "1 p. C.". 4. Schreiben an den Herrn Vicar in Savoyen abzugeben bey dem Herrn Johann Jacob Rousseau: Goed. IV/1,44.9.11; der Erstdruck von 1765 ist VERSCHOLLEN! In dieser Schrift wendet sich Möser gegen das "Glaubensbekenntnis eines savoyischen Vicars" im dritten Teil von Rousseaus "Emile". Er erörtert hier das Eingebundensein einer jeden Religion in den gesellschaftlichen Zusammenhang oder - in der drastischen Diktion des Autors gesagt - er beweist, "daß eine sanfte natürliche Religion gut für Wallachen, aber nicht für Hengste wäre". 5. (Anonym erschienenes) Schreiben an Herrn Aaron Mendez da Costa Oberrabbinern zu Uetrecht, über den leichten Uebergang von der pharisäischen Sekte zur christlichen Religion.- Holzmann/B. IV,1345; nicht bei Goedeke; der Erstdruck von 1773 ist VERSCHOLLEN! Das Schreiben ist an Moses Mendelssohn gerichtet (der Name Aaron Mendez da Costa ist fingiert!) und die Antwort auf dessen vertrauten Brief an Thomas Abbt, "worin er (Mendelssohn) sich über gewisse Wahrheiten unserer (christlichen) Religion sehr scharf ausdrückt".

         La Marine des anciens peuples, expliquée et considérée par rapport aux lumières qu'on en peut tirer pour perfectionner la Marine moderne; avec des figures représentant les vaisseaux de guerre de ces peuples.

      Paris, Nyon ainé and Stoupe 1777 - With 6 engr. folding plates by Sellier. XXXV, (1), 224 pp. 8vo. Contemp. red morocco, flat spine gilt, gilt supralibros with the coat of arms of the French minister Armand-Thomas Hue de Miromesnil (1723-1796), triple gilt fillet around sides, single fillet on outer edges, inner dentelles, edges gilt. With bookplate Henri Houssaye. Paris, Nyon ainé and Stoupe, 1777. First edition. The architect Julien-David Leroy (1724-1803), member of the Académie des Inscriptions and the Académie des Beaux Arts, travelled extensively in Greece and the Levant; he lectured on ancient Greek architecture for forty years. He was convinced that his studies of the marine in antiquity could be profitable to modernize its modern counterpart. He experimented with unsinkable boats and adresses this problem in Book VII of the present work. Leroy even had the boat "Naupotame" constructed which he considered nearly unsinkable. The plates engraved by Louis Sellier (born in Paris in 1757) show the development of ship construction from simple rafts to vessels with three tiers of oarsmen. - Fine copy. - Polak 5848; Hoefer XXX, 893.

         Revolutionary War

      , nd nd. Two thousand British forces under Brigadier General William Tryon, the deposed Royal Governor of New York, reached Danbury, Connecticut, on the evening of April 26, 1777. Before leaving Danbury the next morning, they destroyed warehouses of food and clothing, tents and other supplies and burned about 20 houses. They left by the western road towards Ridgefield. At the beginning of Tryon's raid on Danbury, Brigadier General Silliman was at his home in Fairfield. As soon as he heard word of the British landing on the coast, he began to collect the militia. With a force of 500 militia and 100 Continentals, General Silliman hurried towards Danbury and was joined by Brigadier General Benedict Arnold. With 400 soldiers, they reached and cut off the British line of advance. The British outflanked a group of Americans at the Saugatuck River and crossed the river, heading back to their ships. Brigadier General Silliman, with 500 troops and two cannon, skirmished with the British rear guard until they reached Compo Hill. There the British turned on Silliman and his troops and charged. They drove back the Americans, loaded their troops on their ships and began their short voyage back to New York City, under British control since 1776.

Gold Selleck Silliman was a lawyer, became attorney for the crown in Fairfield, Connecticut. At the beginning of the Revolutionary War, he was colonel of cavalry in the local militia. Promoted to Brigadier General, Silliman was charged with the defense of the southwestern frontier of Connecticut. He served at the head of his regiment in the Battles of Long Island and White Plains. In 1777, Silliman was active in repelling the raid on Danbury. In May, 1779, he was captured at his home and was a prisoner in Flatbush and Gravesend (now Brooklyn) until he was exchanged a year later.

During the Revolutionary War, the military finances for the colony of Connecticut were handled by the Pay Table, also known as the Committee of Four. Pay Table members rotated during the war. To raise funds, Connecticut issued promissory which required signatures of three of four members of the "Pay Table." Many of these were signed by William Moseley who, on the following documents, has certified the wounds of Connecticut soldiers in the Battle of Danbury.

         Arthur St. Clair

      n.d.. Address leaf franked “Public Service / Majr Genl St. Clair,” addressed by him to “General Irwine / at / Carlisle,” 13” x 8.5”, address panel 7” x 3.5”. On laid paper, professionally silked for preservation. Fine condition.

On February 19, 1777, Arthur St. Clair was appointed Major General by Congress and was given the command of Fort Ticonderoga. In 1778, he was court-martialed for the loss of the Fort, but was exonerated and returned to duty, although he was no longer given any battlefield commands. On March 4, 1791, Arthur St. Clair was promoted to Major General by President Washington and was placed in command of the Army. In a March 19, 1791, letter to Lafayette, President George Washington writes, “Your friend, General St. Clair resumes his functions as Major General.” Ostensibly, even though St. Clair had been a Major General since being appointed by the Continental Congress in 1777, Pres. Washington thought it proper to issue a presidential commission as Major General as he “resumes his functions.” He has franked this address leaf as “Majr Genl. St. Clair.” General Irvine lived in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, where most letters to him were sent during and after the Revolutionary War. It is interesting to note, that in the published letters of George Washington to Gen. Irvine, his name is misspelled “Irwine” as St. Clair has penned on this address leaf.

On November 4, 1791, Major General St. Clair, 1st Governor of the Northwest Territory since 1788, led an expedition against the Indians that resulted in a rout by a tribal confederation led by Miami Chief Little Turtle and Shawnee Chief Blue Jacket. Over 600 soldiers were killed as opposed to about 50 enemy dead. In addition, over 50 women and children were killed in the battle which became known to many as St. Clair’s Defeat. At the request of General Washington, St. Clair resigned his commission on March 5, 1792, remaining as Governor until 1802.

When the Pennsylvania State Society was organized in 1783, Arthur St. Clair and William Irvine (1741-1804) were elected President and Treasurer, respectively. St. Clair and Irvine later served together as members of Pennsylvania’s delegation to the Second Continental Congress (1786-1787); St. Clair served as President of the United States in Congress Assembled from February 2, 1787 to November 4, 1787.

In a September 28, 1881, letter to William Henry Smith, editor of “Life and Public Services: Arthur St. Clair” (Cincinnati: Robert Clarke & Co., 1882), Gen. Irvine’s grandson, Dr. W.A. Irvine, sheds light on an incident in the Revolutionary War which has become one of the most memorable events in American history. He writes, in part, “Thomas Leiper, of Philadelphia, a member of the City Troop which served under Washington during the campaign of 1776, stated to my father, Callander Irvine, that St Clair had not received the credit he deserved – of having suggested to General Washington the crossing the Delaware into New Jersey, which resulted so favorably to the American cause, and to General Washington’s fame. Mr. Leiper said, the fact that St Clair did suggest the movement was well known in camp. Leiper was a man of high honor and veracity, and would not have stated the fact if not true ... It is not an uncommon thing for the Commander-in-Chief to reap all the laurels of his subordinates. True, he assumes all the responsibility of any particular course of action. General Washington, as a military man, had not, I think a suggestive mind, but he had the good sense to know when to follow sound advice...”

Gibbon's magnum opus was an immediate runaway success and is widely considered to be "esteemed as the greatest historical work ever written" (Adams, Manual of Historical Literature), placing Gibbon at the "very head of the literary tribe" in Europe according to Adam Smith. David Hume (who read Vol I on his death bed) praised the book. Publisher William Strahan was rightly of the opinion that "it will remain a lasting monument to the genius and ability of the writer" (ODNB). [Attributes: First Edition]
