        The Doctrine of Philosophical Necessity Illustrated: Being an Appendix to the Disquisitions relating to Matter and Spirit. To which is added An Answer to the Letters on Materialism, and on Hartley's Theory of the Mind.

      J. Johnson, London 1777 - First edition. Octavo, bound in three quarters 19th century calf over marbled boards, all edges marbled. Small leather restoration to the head, contemporary name on the title page, a nice clean example. The Doctrine of Philosophical Necessity Illustrated is an important work by Priestley, the theologian, natural philosopher and chemist. Priestley's defense of necessity was so successful that it overshadowed Hume's view in the free will and determinism debate in the late eighteenth century. "Remembered today primarily for his isolation and identification of seven gases, including oxygen, in his own day he was known also as a vigorous advocate of Unitarianism and of liberal reform of government, education, and theology" (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography).

        Manuscript - Rare Safe Passage Privateer Passport - Sugar Trade - Signed By Governor of Grenada, Lord George Macartney

      Grenada, 1777. Fort Royal [St. George's], Grenada, 25 July 1777. Revolutionary War era safe passage certificate for a British privateer, granting the vessel lawful registration, in essence a ship's passport, for a trade voyage from Grenada into dangerous waters teeming with pirates and Patriots. In the previous few months, the same captain and ship had captured three American Rebel vessels. Folio. 1 page. Single leaf, measuring approximately 26,5 x 23 cm, featuring remnants of a red wax seal, also with segments of other blank leafs one of which bears the watermark of Lubbert van Gerrevink or Lucas van Gerrevink ("L.V. GERREVINK") and a crest with powder horn. Chips at extremities, otherwise in very good condition, clean and bright. A singular ephemeral manuscript document signed in the original by the Governor of Grenada. [The paper on which in 1776 Thomas Jefferson penned his "First Ideas" for the Virginia Constitution was marked L.V.G. and also said to be of Dutch origin, most likely also the paper of celebrated papermaker Lubbert van Gerrevink of Egmond a/d Hoef or his successor Lucas van Gerrevink of Alkmaar, or that of L. van Groot.] Signed in the original by a colonial governor, this manuscript safe passage certificate, with its commanding petition for obligatory protection by other vessels and captains, the present document is a rare tangible example of the hindrance caused to the lucrative international sugar trade by the American Revolutionary War. The University of Michigan William L. Clements Library holds a collection of Lord George Macartney papers which deals mainly with his service as Governor of Grenada, Tobago, and the Grenadines from 1776-1779. An exceedingly rare survivor of one of history's most tumultuous eras and most nefarious industries, this particular document was issued and signed by a notable colonial administrator and pertains to a gallant captain of an active sugar trade and privateering sloop ship. It has survived at least one, and possibly multiple hazardous West Indies voyages. Lord Macartney, Governor in Chief, Captain General, Chancellor, and Vice Admiral, of Grenada, the Grenadines, and Tobago, herein announces Captain Dougal's imminent departure from Grenada on a "trade voyage" with his trusted armed sloop Howe. He further makes certain that all officers of British warships are prepared to defend the Howe and her precious cargo. Excerpts from the manuscript: "Grenada. By His Excellency The Right Honourable George, Lord Macartney, Knight of the Bath, Captain General and Governor..." "To All Flag Officers, Captains, and Commanders of His Majesty's Ships of War, and all others..." "... Sloop the Howe, James Dougall, Master... is going on a trading Voyage, and for her better security is well armed, in order to defend herself from Rebels, Pirates and others, infesting those Seas." "This certificate is given of her having been fitted out here [Grenada], and obtained a Register in due form, according to Law..." "... all His Majesty's subjects are to take notice, and give her all Aid, Success and Assistance which she may stand in need of." "Given by my hand and Seal at Arms at Fort Royal in the said Island of Grenada, this twenty fifth day of July 1777. " [signed] "Macartney" End excerpts. Grenada was at the time one of Britain's richest colonies, producing significant quantities of sugar on its plantations. In the eighteenth century, sugar from the colonies was England's most important and profitable commodity. The Revolutionary War created a significant disruption of trade between the sugar islands and the Americas mainland colonies. Cross-Atlantic voyages to England were yet more difficult, most vessels being employed in war as opposed to shipping. 'Howe' was a Grenada-based British privateer sloop, armed and active in the American Revolutionary War, Commanded by British Captain James Dougall who captured three menacing American vessels, 'Orange,' 'Rebecca,' and 'Union' just before embarking on this trade voyage. [The volumes of "The Naval Documents of The American Revolution" contain details of the three captures, and the subsequent agreement made between Captain Dougal and his crew on 1 November 1777.] Vessels captured by Captain James Dougall, Master of the British Sloop Howe, during the American Revolutionary War, just prior to the issue of the above described certificate, which was made on 25 July 1777: 'Union' - a Massachusetts Privateer Schooner commissioned on 13 June 1777 under Commander William White of Gloucester, on a voyage in the West Indies, was captured by Howe, who escorted her into Grenada where she was tried and condemned on 10 October 1777. Union sold for £1636 at auction. She is listed as having four guns in her battery and a crew of fifteen men. Union's $5000 Continental bond was signed by White and by John Codman and William Smith, both of Boston, Massachusetts. 'Orange' - another Boston sloop, with a cargo of fish, lumber, staves, hoops, tallow, and spermaceti candles, was captured by Howe and brought to St. Georges, Grenada, Thursday 15 May 1777. She was tired and sold at auction for £1383.14.3k on 14 July 1777. 'Rebecca' - an American schooner captured at around the same time as the Orange and sold the same day at auction, fetching £656.12.9k. American sloop 'Packet' and schooner 'Fox' captured by British armed sloops Howe and Gage working jointly, and libeling the American vessels which were then condemned as lawful prizes to the captors. 'Union' - a Massachusetts privateer 10 gun sloop owned by John Winthrop Jr of Boston, commanded by Capt Isaac Soames/Somes, captured by Howe 2 September 1776. The crew 65 men escaped. Throughout the eighteenth century, sugar from the colonies was England's most important import. It was the driving force in a network of trade that spanned the Atlantic, touching three continents, and facilitated Britain's development as a trading nation and as an empire. British sugar colonies grew in tandem with the colonies on the American mainland, but there were marked contrasts in economic, social, and political organization. There was a lively trade between the sugar islands and the mainland colonies in the eighteenth century. The Revolutionary War was a serious disruption of this system of trade. During the war the flow of goods was interrupted, leaving the plantations without the food and timber on which they depended, and without a market on which they counted for part of their output. Shipping sugar to England was also more difficult during the war, as shipping itself was scarcer and was frequently threatened, and the refiners' business suffered. George Macartney, 1st Earl Macartney, KB (1737-1806), best known as Lord Macartney, was a British statesman, colonial administrator and diplomat. He is often remembered for his observation following Britain's success in the Seven Years War and subsequent territorial expansion at the Treaty of Paris that Britain now controlled "a vast Empire, on which the sun never sets". Macartney arrived in the Caribbean in 1776 and was the Governor of Grenada, Tobago, and the Grenadines, from 1776 to 1779. Grenada was invaded in July 1779 by the French royal fleet of the Comte d'Estaing, the fortifications on Hospital Hill being sieged, and Macartney was imprisoned. After his return to Great Britain, he was governor of Madras from 1781 to 1785. Lord Macartney had the further distinction of being the first British ambassador to China. Appointed by George III in 1792, he was charged with the demonstration of British equality with, if not superiority to, the peoples of China, and the negotiation of commercial treaties for the export of tea, and more particularly the import of British goods to pay for the tea (until this attempt the Chinese had always forced the British to use silver for payment). Macartney was not especially well received, most likely because of his refusal to acknowledge the divine nature of the Chinese Qing Emperor Tchieng Lung by observing the traditional kowtow (k'ou-t'ou) or ritual abasement and because of his attempt to negotiate a diplomatic treaty acknowledging British equality. The Chinese viewed Macartney as a tributary ambassador (and therefore George III as a tributary king) and his requests were turned down. However, Macartney did take with him a considerable retinue, among them a number of people who published influential accounts of the journey to China and the customs and manners of the Chinese themselves. The embassy returned to England via Macao and St. Helena, arriving in September 1794, and Macartney received an earldom the same year. . Very Good.

        Le philosophe anglois, ou histoire de Monsieur Cleveland, fils naturel de Cromwel, Ecrite par lui - même & traduite de l'anglois

      Chez Paul Vailant, 1777. - Chez Paul Vailant, A Londres 1777, 6 tomes en 6 Vol. in 12 (9,5x16,5cm), (4) xxiv, 429pp. et (4) 439pp. et (4) 424pp. et (4) 366pp. et (4) 360pp. et (4) 372pp., six volumes reliés. - nuova edizione, illustrata con 12 figure Desrais. Frontespizi in rosso e nero. I volumi sono pubblicati successivamente nel 1731, 1732, 1734 e il 1739 e tutto il romanzo pubblicato nel 1741 completa Vitello tempo marmorizzato. Dorso liscio decorato. Parti di titoli e numeri di volume in marocchino rosso. Bordi in marmo. Cappelli del volume I e V logoro. Buona copia comunque. Fu in Inghilterra che l'abate Prevost (uno dei più grandi romanziere del Settecento e più prolifico) scrive gli episodi in inglese e l'utopia di Cleveland è parte dei suoi primi lavori: in questo diario di viaggio, l'eroe, "figlio naturale di Cromwell," è alla ricerca di certezze filosofiche e tranquillità emotiva. Essa esplora i limiti per tale scopo e potenziale di amore, la fauna selvatica, il dogmatismo protestante, troppo ricchi di eventi. L'utopia americana di Cleveland un nuovo mondo muore perché non c'è un mondo redento, basato sulla morale naturale, che può resistere al male. Così, come la maggior parte opere di Prevost, Cleveland nato da una tensione tra la società e le aspirazioni individuali. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition, illustrée de 12 figures de Desrais. Pages de titres en rouge et noir. Les volumes sont successivement parus en 1731, 1732,1734 et 1739 et l'intégralité du roman paraîtra pour la première fois en 1741. Reliures en plein veau d'époque marbré. Dos lisse orné. Pièces de titres et de tomaisons en maroquin rouge. Tranches marbrées. Coiffes du tome I et V élimées. Bon exemplaire néanmoins. C'est en Angleterre que l'abbé Prévost (un des plus grands romancier du XVIIIe et des plus féconds) rédige les épisodes anglais et l'utopie de Cleveland qui fait partie de ses premières oeuvres : dans ce récit de voyage, le héros, « fils naturel de Cromwell », est en quête de certitudes philosophiques et de quiétude affective. Il explore à cette fin les limites et les possibles de l'amour, de la vie sauvage, du dogmatisme protestant, au fil d'épreuves riches. L'utopie américaine de Cleveland d'un nouveau monde meurt, car il n'y a pas de monde racheté, fondé sur la morale naturelle, qui puisse résister au mal. C'est ainsi que, comme la plupart des oeuvres de Prévost, Cleveland nait d'une tension entre la société et les aspirations individuelles.

Un trou de ver au mors supérieur en queue. Deux coins émoussés. Frottements en coiffes, mors et coins. Bon exemplaire, frais. Important essai sur l'origine des populations du continent américain (nord et sud). L'auteur adopte plusieurs méthodes pour parvenir à son but : une étude comparative poussée des langues (notamment des îles du Sud - Est asiatique, du Mexique, du Pérou...), des coutumes et des traditions. Scherer en vient à conclure, notamment en se servant de la littérature antique et de divers voyages, que les populations de l'Amérique ont plusieurs origines migratoires : chinois, africaine et de tribus asiatiques. L'Amérique du Nord, et notamment l'Alaska aurait subi plusieurs flux migratoires par le détroit de Béring, via le Kamtchatka, en provenance de l'Asie.

Fette cailloutées blu. Graffi leggeri sulle stoviglie. Alcuni wormholes a morsi e lavoro verme a margine del volume I dei primi 20 fogli. Nonostante questi piccoli difetti, copia bene, con ottima e fresca. Protean libro dedicato allo studio dell'uomo, abilmente miscelazione e un sempre piacevoli storie di lettura, dialoghi e rappresentazioni teatrali (vi è anche citato in pieno lettere di 'persiano Letter'), la storia; il libro ha un ulteriore scopo enciclopedico sulla natura dell'uomo. Se il primo volume è dedicato a rigor di termini la filosofia della natura nella storia, i seguenti volumi via velocemente al fine di dedicarsi completamente allo studio dell'uomo (la morale, la religione, la politica). Volume IV di particolare interesse è dato, il suo scopo è lo studio dei mostri della natura (uomo dei boschi, l'uomo pesce, eunuchi ...) fonti bibliografiche sono preziosi. Questi sono gli ultimi due volumi che studiano il rapporto dell'uomo con la religione che ha immediatamente inviato il libro condannati al fuoco e il suo bandire in perpetuo con la confisca dei beni. Quest'ultimo non solo solo la religione cristiana, ma la maggior parte allora conosciuto culti di quei veterani e quelli attuali. Al termine dei lavori, una molto severa riflessione politica sulla religione. E 'stato chiamato l'autore di "scimmia Diderot." In che utilizza le stesse forme per raggiungere il suo obiettivo, senza dubbio, ma questo è molto comune tra i filosofi del XVIII. Il lavoro è molto originale, multipla, e se è criticabile, è nelle sue proprie qualità. 'Dalla filosofia della natura è quello di riscoprire e riabilitare. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle et meilleure édition augmentée (en partie originale), illustrée d'un frontispice, de 12 figures non signées, et de 6 vignettes de titre (les pages de titre sont entièrement gravées). Belle impression. L'édition originale de 1770 n'était qu'en 3 Volumes in 12. Reliures en plein veau écaille d'époque. Dos lisse orné avec fleurons et multiples roulettes. Triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Tranches cailloutées bleues. Légères épidermures sur les plats. Quelques trous de ver aux mors, et un travail de ver en marge du tome I sur les 20 premiers feuillets. Malgré ces menus défauts, bel exemplaire, bien relié et bien frais. Livre protéiforme consacré à l'étude de l'homme, mêlant adroitement et dans une lecture toujours plaisante des récits, des dialogues et des pièces de théâtre (on y trouve même citées in extenso des lettres de 'Lettres Persanes'), de l'histoire ; l'ouvrage a un but inavoué encyclopédique sur la nature de l'homme. Si le premier volume est consacré stricto sensu à la philosophie de la nature dans l'histoire, les volumes suivants s'en éloignent vite pour se consacrer entièrement à l'étude de l'homme (morale, religion, politique). On trouvera le volume IV particulièrement intéressant, son objet étant l'étude des monstres de la nature (homme des bois, homme poisson, eunuques...) ; ses sources bibliographiques sont précieuses. Ce sont les deux derniers volumes étudiant le rapport de l'homme à la religion qui firent aussitôt condamner le livre au feu et bannir son auteur à perpétuité avec confiscation de ses biens. Ce dernier ne se contente pas de la seule religion chrétienne, mais de la plupart des cultes connus alors, de ceux des Anciens et de ceux actuels. En fin de l'œuvre, une réflexion politique très sévère sur la religion. On a traité l'auteur de "singe de Diderot". Au sens où il emprunte les mêmes formes pour atteindre son but, sans doute, mais c'est là un lot commun chez les philosophes du XVIIIe. L'œuvre est profondément originale, multiple, et si elle est critiquable, c'est dans ses qualités mêmes. 'De la philosophie de la nature' est à redécouvrir et à réhabiliter.

      S.n, 1777. - S.n., Geneve 1777, in - 8 (12x20cm), (6) vij, (1) 316pp. (3) ; iv, 120pp., relié. - Edizioni originali, periodo di vitello screziato rara sia completa. Smooth indietro 4 ferri. Parti di titolo e il numero del volume in marocchino rosso. Confine filetto Triple sulle copertine. Piccola mancanza in mente. Mancano la testa mascella superiore. Mascella superiore diviso coda. Coda mancanza lieve. Attrito. Il lavoro di Gin è soprattutto una difesa della monarchia (come la forma naturale del governo) contro le teorie di Montesquieu e quelli di Mably, ma al di là di questa premessa, l'insieme è notevole per le sue considerazioni economiche, making gin agricoltura e l'industria degli elementi chiave della salute economica. L'autore si sforza di storia e di esempi da varie nazioni come la Cina inconfutabilmente dimostrare le sue teorie. L'opera di Voltaire è una riflessione intelligente sulle leggi della relatività, compresa la loro ingiustizia. Voltaire chiede a ciascuna categoria di reato (furto, il crimine, l'eresia, maghi ...), e le leggi che sono state stabilite. Una delle ultime opere di Voltaire animati dallo zelo per convincere i suoi contemporanei sull'urgenza di leggi di riforma. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Editions originales, rares toutes les deux.

Manque au mors supérieur en tête. Mors supérieur fendu en queue. Léger manque en queue. Frottements. L'ouvrage de Gin est d'abord une défense du pouvoir monarchique (comme la forme de gouvernement naturel) contre les théories de Montesquieu et celles de Mably, mais par delà ce postulat de départ, l'ensemble est remarquable par ses réflexions économiques, Gin faisant de l'agriculture et de l'industrie les pilers de la santé économique. L'auteur s'évertue par l'histoire et les exemples empruntés à diverses nations comme la Chine de prouver de manière irréfutable ses théories. L'oeuvre de Voltaire est une réflexion habile sur la relativité des lois, et notamment sur leur injustice. Voltaire interroge chaque catégorie de criminalité (vol, crime, hérésie, sorciers...) et les lois qui ont été établies. Une des dernières oeuvres de Voltaire animée par l'ardeur de convaincre ses contemporains sur l'urgence de réformer les lois.

      1777 - First French edition. Large folding engraved map, with paper repairs. 8vo. Fine contemporary (or slightly later) quarter calf, half title, title, & first leaf of prelims. repaired without loss, some unobtrusive water damage to bottom right corner of text pages from p.114 to end, otherwise a very fine copy. xix, 546pp. Amsterdam, Described by the elder Forster as an abortion (of course it pre-empted his account of the voyage) this account was probably edited by David Henry who also edited the Gentleman's Magazine, another of Newbery's publications. Marra, who confessed to being the author of the work, was flogged twice on the voyage on both occasions for insolence to an officer. Nevertheless he appears to have been something of a favourite with Cook who dealt with him most leniently when the Irishman made repeated attempts to desert the ship at Tahiti. To his short account of these events and some sympathetic remarks on Marra's history and character Cook, suprisingly, adds the following comment ?I know not if he might not have obtained my consent if he had applied for it in the proper time?

Linné was a Swedish botanist, physician, and zoologist, who formalised the modern system of naming organisms called binomial nomenclature. He is known by the epithet "father of modern taxonomy". Many of his writings were in Latin, and his name is rendered in Latin as Carolus Linnæus (after 1761 Carolus a Linné). He received most of his higher education at Uppsala University, and began giving lectures in botany there in 1730. He lived abroad between 1735 and 1738, where he studied and also published a first edition of his Systema Naturae in the Netherlands. He then returned to Sweden, where he became professor of medicine and botany at Uppsala. In the 1740s, he was sent on several journeys through Sweden to find and classify plants and animals. In the 1750s and 1760s, he continued to collect and classify animals, plants, and minerals, and published several volumes. At the time of his death, he was one of the most acclaimed scientists in Europe. [Wikipedia].

      Nissen, IVB 819; Ronsil 2718; Wood, p. 552. First and only edition of a natural and mythological history of the ibis by Marie Jules-César Lelorgue de Savigny (1777-1851).

The engravings show the black and the white ibis, close-ups from the beak and leg and some Egyptian illustrations. Barraband is well known for his beautiful ornithological illustrations for Levaillant's works on parrots and birds of paradise. "A learned essay on the Ibis, with observations made during the author's sojourn in Egypt. A rare book ..."

Expertly bound to style in half eighteenth century russia over period marbled paper covered boards, spine with raised bands in six compartments, red and black morocco lettering pieces in the second and fourth, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt Second edition of Cook's second voyage describing his attempt to circumnavigate the globe as far south as possible in search for a southern continent. "Cook earned his place in history by opening up the Pacific to western civilization and by the foundation of British Australia. The world was given for the first time an essentially complete knowledge of the Pacific Ocean and Australia, and Cook proved once and for all that there was no great southern continent, as had always been believed. He also suggested the existence of antarctic land in the southern ice ring, a fact which was not proved until the explorations of the nineteenth century" (Printing and the Mind of Man p.135). "The success of Cook's first voyage led the Admiralty to send him on a second expedition, described in the present work, which was to circumnavigate the globe as far south as possible in search of any southern continents . the men of this expedition became the first to cross the Antarctic Circle. Further visits were made to New Zealand, and on two great sweeps Cook made an astonishing series of discoveries and rediscoveries including Easter Island, the Marquesas, Tahiti and the Society Islands, Niue, the Tonga Islands, the New Hebrides, New Caledonia, Norfolk Island, and a number of smaller islands. Rounding Cape Horn, on the last part of the voyage, Cook discovered and charted South Georgia, after which he called at Cape Town, St. Helena and Ascension, and the Azores . This voyage produced a vast amount of information concerning the Pacific peoples and islands, proved the value of the chronometer as an aid to finding longitude, and improved techniques for preventing scurvy" (Hill p.123) "This, the official account of the second voyage, was written by Cook himself . In a letter, dated June 22nd, 1776, to his friend Commodore William Wilson, Cook writes: - "The Journal of my late Voyage will be published in the course of the next winter, and I am to have the sole advantage of the sale. It will want those flourishes which Dr. Hawkesworth gave the other, but it will be illustrated and ornamented with about sixty copper plates, which, I am of the opinion, will exceed every thing that has been done in a work of this kind; . As to the Journal, it must speak for itself. I can only say that it is my own narrative ."' (Holmes pp.35-36). Beddie 1217; cf. Hill (2004) 358; cf. Holmes 24; cf.

First Edition. This is Teten's major which was written while he was a professor at Kiel. Tentens was educated at the universities of Rostock and Copenhagen and was professor of philosophy and mathematics at the Univeristy of Keil from 1776 to 1789 - after which he embarked on a brilliant career as a senior financial official in Copenhagen.The present work "was an extended inquiry into the origins and structure of knowledge. [Tetens] distinguished three faculties of the human mind: understanding, free will and feeling of pleasures and pains. He stressed the independence of the third faculty from the first two. The three may be reducible to one, but if so, according to Tetens, we cannot know it Tetens discussed with great insight many other extremely complicated problems in metaphysics, ethics, the philosophy of education and the philosophy of language. His Philosophische Versuche exerted a tremendous influence on Kant when he was writing the Critique of Pure Reason, and the many similarities between their doctrines are evident. Teten's doctrines may be compared to Kant's even in their speculative power and importance." (EP, Vol. VIII, p. 96) Beautifully preserved contemporary full sheep bindings. Spines with five gilt-ruled raised bands and two contrasting gilt-lettered labels - titles C. L. S 1784" with an addition four lines of inked text in volume 1 describing the gift of the books.

Schroeter';s importance lies, Burney wrote, in his being ?the first who brought into England the true art of treating [the piano]'; (Rees';s Cyclopaedia). His playing was not without bravura, and he astounded audiences by the graceful ease with which he performed rapid passage-work. Indeed the impression he made owed much to the delivery: ?His touch was extremely light and graceful so that just to watch him play became a pleasure in itself'; (Musikalisches Wochenblatt). His compositions helped to popularize in England a natural ?singing-allegro'; style and his concertos opp.3 and 5, which were among the earliest in England designed specifically for the piano, enjoyed particular success and influence. (Mozart was sufficiently impressed with op.3 to write cadenzas for three concertos.)" Ronald R. Kidd in Grove Music Online.. Oblong folio. Disbound. 1f. (fine decorative engraved title), [1] (blank), 2-45, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Scored for flute or violin and harpsichord. Middle movements of each lesson with the first verse underlaid below flute part, and subsequent verses printed below music. With "N.B. To make this Work of more general use, the words are put to the middle Movements which are chiefly selected from the most favourite Scotch Airs" printed to lower margin of title. Early signature of "Miss Acton" in black ink to upper margin of title. Slightly worn; occasional light foxing and soiling; some very light dampstaining and worming to lower portions of pp. 21-27 and 35-45 respectively. Together with early manuscript verses from one of the collection's Scotch airs, "De'el tak the War" (a.k.a. "Deil tak' the wars") laid in. Octavo. 1 p. In black ink. With titling ("The Wars") to upper margin. Text in English, with significant variation from published versions, particularly in the second verse ("But my brave, my dearest Willy goes through every danger... Oh! Had he been to the Wars a stranger, from my arms he ne'er had gone").

        Journals of Congress, Containing the Proceedings from Sept. 5, 1774 to Jan. 1, 1776

      Philadelphia: R. Aitken, 1777. First edition. 8vo. (Short marginal tear on Qq2 just touching text.) Original boards, UNCUT (portions of backstrip lacking, some pale staining); quarter blue morocco slipcase. FIRST COLLECTED EDITION. The Journals were issued by the government's printers Robert Aitken, John Patterson, John Dunlap and David Claypoole and document the early history of the American republic, minutely recording its progression from an array of disparate and disgruntled colonies to armed resistence and outright rebellion, Independence, confederation, and eventually, unification under a remarkable Federal Constitution. The journals records the daily business of the Congress, and contain the most vital documents from the Revolutionary period through the end of the Confederacy, and culminates with the tumultuous adoption of the Federal Constitution in 1788. The bibliographical and textual importance of books preserved in original, unsophisticated state needs no elaboration, especially as some of the edition sizes were quite small (as few as 500 copies). The resolution of 13 September 1786, which was printed in volume 11, directs "That the Secretary of Congress take order for having printed and bound in the usual manner [boards?] five hundred volumes of the journals of Congress for each of the years 1777, 1778, 1780 and 1781 1782." The 12-page Index is not present at end of this copy--clearly issued without it at the time of publication. Soon after the Declaration of Independence, Congress recognized the necessity of publishing and disseminating its proceedings on a timely basis. These volumes appeared in more or less annual volumes, but in variable formats and from three different printers: Robert Aitken, John Dunlap, and David Claypoole. A tradition had already been established by the separate publication of the Journals from the First and Second Continental Congress in 1774 and 1775. This, the first volume in the series, began after the Declaration of Independence, reprinted those journals, and was issued concurrently with the second volume, both appearing from the press of Robert Aitken in 1777 (that volume includes the full text of the Declaration of Independence, and the names of the Signers, pp. 241-246).

Oeder was a German-Danish botanist, medical doctor, economist and social reformer, and the first director of the Danish Botanical Garden. As part of his job at the Botanical Garden he initiated this ambitious European botanical work, which was published over a 125-year period. It covers, in great detail, the plants of Norway, Greenland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, portions of Northern Germany, and some Swedish flora. "The value of the work was in the accuracy and beauty of the plates made under his [Oeder's] supervision by Martin and Michael Rösssler and later, under the supervision of the Danish editors, by Christian F. Mueller (1748-1814) and Johann Theodor Bayer (1782-1873). The Rösslers together contributed some 600 plates, J.T. Bayer some 1,500 plates. Their figures unite great artistic excellence with utmost scientific exactness, so that they belong to the best of their kind" (Stearn, The Flora Danica: Its History and Illustrations).

      Boston: John Gill/Thomas and John Fleet , 1777. First Edition. Pamphlet. Fair. Broadside having been wrapped about pamphlet, now unfolded, is fragmented: lacking about 2 inches from one half of the lower panel (thus half of 2 lines of text), and the center (once at spine of pamphlet) is chipped with some text loss. Needs restoration. Handwritten marginalia mentions Wilmington [Mass.]. The pamphlet is repeatedly signed Benjamin Jaquith, His Book (January 17, 1783) which establishes its early provenance and connection to Wilmington. Jaquith was respected by the Wilmington Community where he long served as a deacon in the Congregational Church, representing the town at the historic Middlesex Convention of 1774, and assisting in the War effort in various ways, including a short stint as an enlisted soldier when the Battle of Lexington first began (at 59 years old). Born June 27, 1716, married to Hannah Walker, daughter of Capt. Samuel and Hannah (Fowle) Walker of Woburn in July 1739. Hannah Jaquith died in Wilmington, Mass., February 20, 1801 at 82 years old. Deacon Benjamin Jaquith died in Wilmington August 29, 1801 at 85 years old. According to The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol. LXI, 1907, page 252: On April 6, 1763 (Ensign Jonathan Jones) was commissioned ensign of Cap. Benjamin Jaquiths Company of Wilmington militia (Mass. Archives, vol. Xcix p30). On the fated morning of April 19, 1775, two companies of Minutemen started out on the road to Lexington very early in response to the alarum, one of them commanded by Captain Cadwallader Ford, the other by Captain Timothy Walker. Later another went out, commanded by Captain John Harnden. They fought at Lexington, Concord and Bunker Hill. The number of Wilmington men who fought in the Revolutionary War was 260, including 24 captains, several of whom rose to higher command. This indicates that nearly all the able-bodied men of Wilmington were engaged in the struggle for liberty. Source, American Insurance Agency.From the Muster Roll of Captain Timothy Walkers Co. of Wilmington, Mass. which marched in response to the alarm of Lexington April 19, 1775 were the following members of the Jaquith family: Sgt.

        Histoire naturelle et mythologique de l'Ibis.Paris, Allais (back of half-title: Imprimerie de H.L. Perronneau), 1805. 8vo. With 6 engraved plates, including 4 hand-coloured (2 folding) by Bouquet after Redouté and Barraband. 19th-century dark red half sheepskin.

      Nissen, IVB 819; Ronsil 2718; Wood, p. 552. First and only edition of a natural and mythological history of the ibis by Marie Jules-César Lelorgue de Savigny (1777-1851). It contains six engravings after drawings by two major natural history illustrators: Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759-1840) and Jacques Barraband (1768-1809), of which four are hand-coloured. The book gives an account of the black and the white ibis, their mythical position in ancient Egypt and the related cults, their natural habitat and answers the question whether they eat snakes or not. The engravings show the black and the white ibis, close-ups from the beak and leg and some Egyptian illustrations. Barraband is well known for his beautiful ornithological illustrations for Levaillant's works on parrots and birds of paradise. "A learned essay on the Ibis, with observations made during the author's sojourn in Egypt. A rare book ..." (Wood). With a faint and somewhat blotted library stamp on half-title, title-page somewhat soiled, a few occasional small smudges, and plates shaved with slight loss of plate-numbers. Otherwise in good condition.
