        Pair of Autograph Letters Signed as a Major-General of the Northern Department June 26, 1777 and June 29, 1777 to Major Christopher Peter Yates, Saratoga and Albany ¿ giving orders a week before the Siege of Ticonderoga

      - two letters, two pages, folio, paper tanned, some staining, old folds, some nicks and chips at edges, with some minor loss, separations at fold joints, else in good, legible condition. Inscribed on laid paper water-marked ¿OCR¿ a mark not found in Gravell. This pair of letters from General Philip Schuyler to Major Yates contains orders for the troops, including preparations, and various actions to be undertaken in the field, issued in late June the week before the Siege of Fort Ticonderoga the first week of July 1777. The 1777 Siege of Fort Ticonderoga occurred between July second and sixth 1777, near the southern end of Lake Champlain in the state of New York. Lieutenant General John Burgoyne's 8,000-man army occupied high ground above the fort, and nearly surrounded the defenses. These movements forced the occupying Continental Army, an under-strength force of 3,000 under the command of General Arthur St. Clair, to withdraw from Ticonderoga and the surrounding defenses. Some gunfire was exchanged, and there were some casualties, but there was no formal siege and no pitched battle. Burgoyne's army occupied Fort Ticonderoga and Mount Independence, the extensive fortifications on the Vermont side of the lake, without opposition on 6 July. Advance units pursued the retreating Americans. The uncontested surrender of Ticonderoga caused an uproar in the American public and in its military circles, as Ticonderoga was widely believed to be virtually impregnable, and a vital point of defense. General St. Clair and his superior, General Philip Schuyler, were vilified by Congress. Both were eventually exonerated in courts martial, but their careers were adversely affected. Schuyler had already lost his command to Horatio Gates by the time of the court martial, and St. Clair held no more field commands for the remainder of the war. Saratoga [June] 26, 1777 ¿Sir, As a body of the Enemy are encamped at Gilliland¿s creek on Lake Champlain, from whence they will probably send parties to harass us, I entreat you to keep a good Look out to send scouts continually Distance to the West and North West of your Garrison to make discoveries, and lest an attempt should be made to burn our vessels on Lake George I have ordered Commodore Wynkoop to get the guns in the vessel already launched that he may be in a condition of Defence.

Marbled endpapers, bookplate of Edmond Couleru. Notes in pen and pencil on title. Stain on front blank, otherwise very bright and clean. Four changes to the text in contemporary hand on p,XXX.

XXVII Essay Analytique sur les Decouvertes Capitales de L’Esprit Humain. The work ranges over modern philosophers including the English empiricists. It also discusses the American revolution. The last essay was given at the Royal Society in London, 1777. Luigi Gonzaga prince of Castiglione (1745-1819) was a scholar and a native of Vienna. His lineage was from the ancient house of Gonzaga a noble family that ruled Mantua, in Northern Italy, from 1328 to 1708; they also ruled Monferrato in Piedmont and Nevers in France. His family was a subbranch of the Gonzaga and Solferino family. His parents were Ferdinand III of Castiglione and Elena Medin. Childless, he was the last in the line of this branch of the Gonzaga family. Luigi Gonzaga became a scholar, traveler and activist and who read and followed the philosophers of the enlightenment and understood the need for progressive measures to support civil rights, freedom and democracy. Expelled from Venice for his progressive ideas, Luigi Gonzaga became first a refugee, then an exile, then a tolerated member of a learned and ancient family. During his stay in Rome he became a friend of the poet Maria Maddalena Morelli. He was elected to membership in the patrician Pontificia Accademia degli Arcadi. (Founded Rome 1690, The “Accademia degli Arcadi” was an important if archly conservative force in classical literature and culture until the 20th century. First published Roma : B.

      Sukhoputniy Kadetskiy korpus Skt. Peterburg 1777 - Octavo (19.7 x 12.6 cm). Title, III - XXXIV, 350 pp., with frontispiece and 9 plates; first title never bound in. Contemporary calf over marbled boards, spine with raised bands, red morocco label to second compartment. Exceptionally fresh copy of this rare work on military science. The Kurganov's book is an early example of a work on military strategies and concepts, and fortifications compiled by a Russian scientist. It took the Russian Empire a long time to develop its own school of military science. Works on the topic were either available in original languages, mostly English, Dutch or Latin, or were Russian translations of a single source. The ascension to the throne of Catherine II in 1762 and her support of scientific development brought the Russian scientific research to a distinctively new level. In his work Kurganov brought together various foreign sources in order to cover each topic in the most complete way. He didn't only translate the material but also adapted it for the Russian readers. Of particular value is a dictionary of engineering terms at the end of the book – the first of its kind to be available in the Russian language. Nikolay Kurganov (1725 - 1796) was teaching Mathematics and Navigation at the Naval Academy. Among his pupils were explorer F.F. Bellingshausen and Fedor Ushakov, who was to become the most illustrious Russian naval commander and admiral of the 18th century. In 1750-1753 Kurganov himself took part in expeditions aiming to improve maps of the Gulf of Finland and the Baltic Sea.

Den sjældne originaludgave af den første trykte mineralogi på dansk.Scarce first edition of the first Danish mineralogy, a complete introduction to the subject. It emulates the work of Johan Gotschalk Wallerius upon which it is based by including in the species descriptions notes on synonoymes, hardness, physical appearance, origins, and uses. In addition, every mineral listed has a reference to Wallerius' system as presented in Systema Mineralogicum (1st ed., Holmiæ, 1772-5). Brünnich adopts a classification system founded on chemical principles that provides a good foundation for the logical organization of the species.Bibl. Danica II, 199

        Nouvelle Carte des Côtes des Carolines, Septentrionales et Meridionales de Cap Fear a sud Edisto. Levees et Sondees par N. Pocock en 1770

      Paris: Chez le Rouge, Rue des Grands Augustins, 1777. Copper-engraved sea chart, with wide margins, in excellent condition. A very rare nautical chart of the Carolina coast, and one of the most important maps relating to France's participation in the Revolutionary War. This very finely engraved sea chart was produced by the prominent Parisian cartographer Georges Louis Le Rouge for use by the French Navy, which entered the Revolutionary War the year after this map was printed. It embraces the coast of the Carolinas from Cape Fear, North Carolina, all the way down to South Edisto Island in South Carolina. The map also depicts the pictorial outlines of the key ports of Charleston and Georgetown. This chart was included in Le Rouge's Atlas Amériquain Septentrionale , and as the title suggests was based on manuscript charts produced by Nathaniel Pocock. Curiously, the identity of Pocock or the location of any of his charts has remained an enigma for historians. Nevertheless, the map features relatively advanced hydrographic information, including depth soundings and bearing lines to major landmarks and lighthouses. The chart features seven very attractive mariner's views of the coast, and the sea is embellished with two frigates under full sail and is traversed by rhumb lines that radiate from a compass rose. Examples of this chart would have been used at sea by French officers, as their navy engaged British ships on numerous occasions off the Carolina coast.

      London: John Morris, 1777. Slight edge wear, minor tape repair in upper corners. Brief biography in pencil on verso. Image quite clean. Very good. An attractive mezzotint portrait of Sir William Howe, executed while he was serving as commander of the British forces in America. Howe is shown in a half-length standing pose, wearing the star and sash of the Order of the Bath. Howe succeeded Gage as commander of the British forces in the colonies during the Revolution, serving in this capacity from 1775 to 1778. He was quite popular with his troops, and the casual pose struck here communicates a sense of his pleasant demeanor. This print is an ample demonstration of the demand in England at the time for images of British war heroes. Howe had distinguished himself as early as the French and Indian War, and his stature as commander of British forces in North America helped create a market for his image, along with those of other key military leaders. British printers responded by creating several portraits, most of them bearing little resemblance to their subject. These portraits were instead created from a basic visual template. The present portrait of Howe is one such example of this trend, as it bears little resemblance to other contemporary portraits of him, and there is no record of the General having sat for a portrait by a Charles Corbutt. To further complicate matters, "Charles Corbutt" was a pseudonym used by a Dublin-born engraver named Richard Purcell. A fine example of Revolutionary iconography. CRESSWELL, pp.40-41 (ref).

Trial of English radical John Horne Tooke, charged with libel for writing that the British troops murdered colonists at Lexington and Concord. "Following a clash between the colonists and British troops at Lexington and Concord in April 1775, the Constitutional Society, at Horne's suggestion, raised a subscription for the Americans concerned. Horne was to convey the money to Benjamin Franklin, and the society's resolutions were drawn up by Horne and published in the newspapers to announce that the subscription was for 'our beloved American fellow-subjects, who...preferring death to slavery, were...inhumanly murdered by the King's troops'....Horne found himself charged with libel for the advertisement he prepared, and on 4 July 1777 was tried before Lord Mansfield. He defended himself with characteristic forcefulness and audacity but was found guilty and sentenced to one year in prison, to pay a fine of £200, and to find sureties for three years of £400 from himself and £200 from two others" - DNB.

The present copy bears the ownership signature of Jonathan Stone of the central Massachusetts town of Rutland, just north of Worcester. The final blank page contains Stone's ink notes recording the names of leading Rutland citizens and politicians, as well as several calculations. In 1777, Massachusetts passed a State Price Act, allowing towns to set prices on various groceries and commodities to prevent profiteering through hoarding and price gouging. This printed version of the Act, passed Jan. 25, sets out the reasoning for the law in a preamble, provides a list of goods and services with the maximum prices that could be asked, and authorizes localities throughout the state to set their own prices based on "usage and custom." The law was repealed in October 1777. EVANS 15404. CUSHING 976. NAIP w033147.
