         Oliver Wolcott, Jr.

      May 1778. Endorsement signature "Olivr Wolcott Aud[itor]" signed vertically over the face of a most curious Autograph Letter Signed by Justice of the Peace, John Hempsted, one page, oblong quarto (9" x 7.5"), [New London, Connecticut], May 1778. Part letter and part invoice, Hempsted reports to state treasurer, John Lawrance at Hartford on the case of an anonymous Frenchman found dead at low tide in New London harbor. Hemptead, besides being a justice of the peace, was also a captain in the 3rd Connecticut State Regiment. He is perhaps best known for his narrative description of Benedict Arnold's 1781 raid on New London. Hempsted writes: "Sir I send you here a Bill of Cost which arose on account of a Stranger that was Drounded [sic] by all probability in our harbour from on board the french Ship that was here but is now gon[e] the body Drove out of the harbour & Came on Shore upon the Lower part of the Great neck in this town about five miles from town the Cost of Jury & Constables fees together with his Burying & was £2..6..9 there was some money in his pocket shoes on his feet which partly payd ye cost viz 1..0..3..." Wolcott adds his endorsing signature vertically over Hempsted's letter. The document is accompanied by an additional manuscript Document, one page, 7" x 3", [no place, no date but contemporary with the above document], a "Coppy [sic] of an Inventory of Sundrys taken from a Dead body of a man supposed to be a French man by a Book in his pocket Viz. one piece of Silver money a Crown peace [sic] @ £0-6-8 one Doller [sic] bill & one 1/2 of a Doller Continentel [sic] -- 0-8-0 one 5 d one 2 Connecticut Bills - 0-0-7 one p[ai]r Shoos [sic] taken of his feet ---- 0-5-0" Little is known about this mysterious "French Ship". It was not part of D'Estaing's fleet that didn't arrive at the Delaware Capes from Tulon until July 2, 1778. The ship may have been a merchant ship delivering military stores from France. Light creases, folds a tad ragged, else fine condition, very bright and clean overall. Oliver Wolcott (1726-1797) Signer of the Declaration of Independence from Connecticut, later served as Governor of Connecticut.

Mezzotint engraving on a vellin type paper. Description: Original antique master print.

Beside his portraits, Van Dyke is known for his mythological and biblical subject treatment.

A few minor in the lower margin, one just crossing neatline. Text panel on the right. Copperplate engraving and etching on a verge type hand laid paper. Description: This map originates from an unrecorded composite Atlas compiled around 1795 (based on youngest dated map) which contained many maps originally published in the famous 'Atlas Universel.', by de Vaugondy, first published in 1757. To produce the atlas, the Vaugondys integrated older sources with more modern surveyed maps. They verified and corrected the latitude and longitude of many regional maps in the atlas with astronomical observations. The older material was revised with the addition of many new place names. In the late 18th c. the plates of these maps were acquired by Delamarche. This map has reference to Le Sr. Robert de Vaugondy and Delamarche in it's cartouches. Date reference in cartouche: 1778.Artists and Engravers: Gilles Robert de Vaugondy (1688�1766), also known as Le Sieur or Monsieur Robert, and his son, Didier Robert de Vaugondy (c.1723�1786), were leading cartographers in France during the 18th century. Charles Francois Delamarche (1740-1817) founded the important and prolific Paris based Maison Delamarche map publishing firm in the late 18th century. A lawyer by trade Delamarche entered the map business with the acquisition from Jean-Baptiste Fortin of Robert de Vaugondy's map plates and copyrights and later addes many plates from other sources as well. Charles Delamarche eventually passed control of the firm to his son Felix Delamarche (18th C. - 1st half 19th C.) and geographer Charles Dien (1809-1870). It was later passed on to Alexandre Delamarche, who revised and reissued several Delamarche publications in the mid-19th century. The firm continued to publish maps and globes until the middle part of the 19th century. Condition: General age related toning and light staining. Worm holes at lower middle fold and bottom margin; paper separation lower middle fold, backed by identical paper. Irregular paper edges, chipped with small tears, backed by identical paper.

Deckeln. Teils nur wenig berieb. Schöne Einbände. Innen Papier teils leicht gebräunt, Titelblätter fleckig, stellenweise etw. braunfleckig, einige Seiten jedoch stärker. Karl Joseph Biener Ritter von Bienenberg (tschechisch Karel Josef Biener z Bienenberka; * 4. November 1731 in Schlan; † 20. Januar 1798 in Prag, Ritter seit 1769) war Hauptmann des altböhmischen Königgrätzer Kreises im Königreich Böhmen sowie Historiker. Wegen seiner prähistorischen Forschungen gilt er als Vater der böhmischen Vorgeschichtswissenschaft. Karl Joseph Biener war ein Sohn des Joseph Georg Johann Biener († um 1750), Doktor der Medizin, Kreisphysikus in Schlan, seit 1740 Professor der Anatomie an der Karlsuniversität Prag und ein Enkel des Philipp Anton Biener, Regiments-Auditor und kaiserlich königlicher Richter in Leitmeritz und Prag. 1754 wurde dem Vater der Adelstand mit dem Prädikat „von Biener“ verliehen. Karl Joseph Biener war Absolvent der Rechtswissenschaften der Karlsuniversität. 1775 wurde er zum Adjunkt am Kreisamt in Leitmeritz und um 1783 Kreishauptmann in Königgrätz. Als Kaiser Joseph II. die Festung Königgrätz gegen Preußen ausbauen ließ, galt das Interesse Karl Joseph Biener von Bienenbergs vor allem den dabei zutage kommenden prähistorischen Bodenfunden und deren Fundplätzen. Er legte sorgfältige Zeichnungen an, trat mit gleichgesinnten Forschern in Gedanken- und Forschungsaustausch, forderte systematische Grabungen und vermutete in Publikationen eine bis in die prähistorische Vorzeit reichende Besiedlung Böhmens durch Slawen. Dies fand bei tschechischen Wissenschaftlern besondere Anerkennung. Von 1779 lebte er bis zu seinem Tod in Prag.; Quelle Wikipedia. - Mit mehr. gefalt. Kupfertafeln (sehr sauber).
