        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM WILLIAM BRADFORD, JR. TO JOSEPH CLARK, LEAVING CLARK IN CHARGE WHILE BRADFORD IS AWAY]

      [N.p., but Valley Forge, Pa.], 1778. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old fold lines. Minor soiling, heavier on address leaf. Small paper loss on address leaf from wax seal. Very good. In a folio-sized blue half morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. William Bradford, Jr., Deputy Muster Master General for the Continental Army, writes to Joseph Clark of the New Jersey Militia from the brutal winter encampment of Valley Forge during the winter of 1777-78. Bradford expresses concern at not having seen Clark personally and states he is leaving Clark in charge while he is away. William Bradford Jr., son of the famous Revolutionary War printer of the same name, was a Philadelphia lawyer. He later served as Attorney General of Pennsylvania, on the state Supreme Court, and as the second Attorney General of the United States in 1794-95 (until he died at age forty). His service in the American Revolution included action at the Battle of Trenton and a term as Deputy Muster Master General, 1777-79. The recipient of this letter, Joseph Clark, was a soldier from New Jersey who attended Princeton and became a minister after the war. Bradford writes: "Sir, I was extremely disappointed by your going to Elizabethtown without seeing me. I have waited several days expecting your return; as I wanted you to superintend the department during my absence, & give you some instructions on that head. I have at length determined to set off for Philada. in confidence that your prudence will bring you to camp in a day or two, & that you will give such directions relative to the Department as the exigency of affairs may require. I have left notice at the Adjt. Genls. office that all officers do apply to you during my absence. You will direct Col. Thomas to muster Van Heere's corps of horse which is stationed at Schanks Mills on Millstone as soon as possible." The corps of horse to which he refers is that of Capt. Barth Van Heer's dragoons - the group that served as Gen. Washington's Lifeguards. This letter was written from Valley Forge, where the Continental Army spent the legendary winter of 1777-78. Within weeks, Baron Friedrich von Steuben would arrive to drill the troops, turning ragtag colonials into disciplined soldiers. It was at Valley Forge that Gen. Washington's army became a cohesive fighting force that would gain our nation its independence from Britain. APPLETON'S CYCLOPÆDIA I, p.351.

        AT A GENERAL ASSEMBLY, BEGUN AND HELD AT THE CAPITOL, IN THE CITY OF WILLIAMSBURG, ON MONDAY THE FIFTH DAY OF OCTOBER, IN THE YEAR OF OUR LORD ONE THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED AND SEVENTY EIGHT

      Williamsburg: Alexander Purdie, 1778. Folio. Antique-style three quarter calf and marbled boards, gilt, leather label. Minor foxing, text trimmed a bit close. Very good. A rare and important Revolutionary War-era collection of Virginia session laws. One act relating to the Revolutionary War encourages soldiers in the Continental Army to continue in service by providing higher pay and discounts on common luxuries like wine, coffee, chocolate, and sugar. Later in the session, the assembly partially recanted this act, declaring that it "cannot be carried fully into execution without greatly distressing the publick treasury." As a result, the provisions of the act were executed at the discretion of the governor and council. Another act calls on the governor and council to supply the American army and navy with grain and flour, and yet another act lays out guidelines for terms of service and pay for recruitment of more Virginia soldiers for the Continental Army. Other measures include an act preventing the further importation of slaves, an act extending the boundary line between Virginia and North Carolina, an act suspending payment to clergy of the Church of England, and "An act for Establishing the county of Ilinois" on the western side of the Mississippi river. "The General Assembly passed two acts at this session, both of which had an immediate effect throughout the colony. It prohibited the further importation of slaves into Virginia; and (because of a severe grain shortage) it prohibited the distilling of spirits from corn, wheat, rye, and other grains for a period of eight months" - Berg. Rare, with only five copies recorded in Berg. Printing would soon end in Williamsburg, as the government fled westward to escape the British in 1779. BERG 265. EVANS 16154. SWEM 7113.

        BAYE DE CHESAPEAKE EN 4 FEUILLES AVEC LES BAS FONDS, PASSES, ENTREES, SONDES ET ROUTES...PATOWMACK, PATAPSCO, ET NORD-EST D'APRES LES DESSINS DE NAVIGATEURS EXPERIMENTES, PRINCIPAL D'APRES A. SMITH PILOTE DE ST. MARYS; COMPAREES AVEC LES NOUVELLES LEVEES DE VIRGINIE ET MARYLAND

      Paris: George Louis Le Rouge, 1778. Very good. The first French edition of Chesapeake pilot Anthony Smith's highly detailed chart of Chesapeake Bay and the rivers that converge in it. As Pritchard points out, pilots were offering themselves for hire to visiting merchant ships from the 1640s onward, so hazardous are sand spits, currents, and shoals. Given the critical need, it is surprising how few charts were made in the 18th century. In making his chart, Anthony Smith of St. Mary's County in Maryland, took the most important cartographical works on the region: Walter Hoxton's 1735 chart, and Fry and Jefferson's map of Virginia, and added to this information many soundings in the mouths of Western shore rivers, making it the best chart of the Bay. As such it was published by George Louis Le Rouge in the PILOTE AMERICAIN SEPTENTRIONALE in 1778, the year in which the French formally allied with the Americans. The LeRouge is undoubtedly based on the second English edition of 1777. The first two editions of Smith's chart are virtually unobtainable, so the LeRouge edition (the third) in a large, wall map scale, represents an opportunity for collectors to see in detail the places where on sea and land the British endured their final defeat. Three years after it was issued, the French fleet, having driven off the British, blockaded the Bay and surrounded the Yorktown peninsula, which, in concert with Washington's siege, forced the British to surrender.

Octagonal blue stamp of Livraria Antiga e Moderna just below and to the right. xxxii, 373 pp. Page 366 numbered correctly (sometimes wrongly numbered 356). *** Third edition of this eighteenth-century masterpiece of prose and forerunner of the modern novel of ideas. This edition was edited by Silva de Eça's son, who made many changes. It is the first to contain the "Carta sobre a fortuna" (pp. 326-68), which Silva de Eça had left in manuscript.A native of São Paulo, Silva de Eça spent most of his adult life in Portugal. This work on the themes of Ecclesiastes is his principal work, and one of the few notable prose works written by a Brazilian in the latter half of the 18th century. In 1920 Solidonio Leite published a facsimile of the first edition (1752), calling the public's attention to the literary significance of this forgotten classic and reestablishing Silva de Eça's reputation as a man of Brazilian letters.Silva de Eça was the brother of Brazil's first female novelist, Teresa Margarida da Silva e Orta, author of @Aventuras de Diofanes (1752). *** Borba de Moraes, I, 240; (rev. ed., 1983) I, 283-4; @Período colonial, p. 127.

Ingenhousz' interest in this work must have been aroused by Hulme's lengthy discussion of a new technique of dissolving 'fixed air', i.e. carbon dioxide, in various liquids, an early example of carbonation.Hulme (1732-1807) 'succeeded in dissolving or breaking up a stone within the bladder by the following prescription: fifteen grains of salt of tartar, in three ounces of pure water, four times a day, followed immediately by a draught of water containing twenty drops of weak spirit of vitriol. The alleged result was that hundreds of fragments of calculus came away for several weeks . The same remedy was advocated by him . for scurvy, gout, and worms, in a pamphlet with an appendix on an extemporaneous method of impregnating water and other liquids with fixed air, by simple mixture only, without the assistance of an apparatus or complicated machine' (DNB).Van der Pas 26; Blake p 225; OCLC: NLM and Harvard for North America

        A DESCRIPTIVE ACCOUNT OF THE ISLANDS LATELY DISCOVERED IN THE SOUTH-SEAS...

      London: R. Baldwin, 1778. Original blue boards, drab paper spine, contemporary manuscript titling on spine and front board. Light wear and soiling to binding. Contemporary ownership inscription on front fly leaf. Very minor foxing, primarily to outer leaves. Very good and in unsophisticated original condition. In a cardboard slipcase. An important early compilation of South Seas voyages, assembled by John Trusler, who drew primarily on Cook's explorations. This would have been the first introduction of many readers to the English advances in exploring the Pacific. "John Trusler is described in the DNB as an eccentric divine, a literary compiler, and a medical empiric. Throughout his diverse career Trusler published many works, on subjects ranging from philosophy to farming, but he was most renowned for his HOGARTH MORALIZED and for his various condensations of famous sermons in cursive-facsimile type for use by the clergy....The [present] work contains descriptions and history of Tahiti and the Society Islands, the Friendly Islands, New Hebrides, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Australia, the Solomon Islands, New Holland, and Kamchatka. It offers lively and entertaining discussions of the customs of the inhabitants of these various Pacific islands" - Hill. A very few copies were apparently issued with a folding map, which is not present in this copy, nor was it present in the Hill copy; likewise, ESTC does not call for a map. Scarce, with only a handful of copies in ESTC. HILL 1719. ESTC T107078.

        R?PONSE AU PR?CIS. POUR MESSIRE JEAN-BAPTISTE DE CASTERA...CONTRE Me. GARDON DE COLIERE...EN PR?SENCE DU SIEUR LA VINCENDIERE, RE«U TIERS-OPPOSANT ¿ L'ARR T DU 21 JANVIER 1754, DEMANDEUR & D?FENDEUR [caption title]

      Port-au-Prince: De l'Imprimerie Royale, 1778. Quarto. Stitched as issued. A few contemporary manuscript notations. Minor soiling and wear. Very good plus. A remarkably early Saint Domingue imprint, previously unrecorded. The quality of the printing and production puts most North American work of the same period to shame. The pamphlet is a response to a court case from 1754 involving nine casks of indigo, tried by Jean Baptiste de Castera as defendant and Gardon de Coliere and his spouse Marie-Francoise Lombard as the plaintiffs. This document outlines the facts of the case and refutes them, with a final "Consultation" throwing out the case against M. de Castera. The origins of printing in Saint Domingue, now Haiti, are obscure. The best contemporary source, Isaiah Thomas in his HISTORY OF PRINTING IN AMERICA, says that a press was established at Port-au-Prince as early as 1750, but this is uncertain since the earliest imprints do not survive. In American libraries we can locate a 1767 Port- au-Prince imprint at the Library Company of Philadelphia, while the earliest held by the John Carter Brown Library (which has by far the most extensive collection of very early Saint Domingue imprints, with about three dozen prior to 1785) is 1769. The earliest we have ever seen in the market was 1773. The survival rate of early Caribbean imprints is very low, and as a result all Caribbean printing from the 18th- century is quite rare. No copies of this item is located in OCLC, and it appears to be a unique survival.

Schwerpunkt der Bibliothek sollte die deutsche Literatur der 1770er Jahre sein. In der relevanten Literatur finde ich keinen Hinweis darauf, aus welchen Quellen die Bücher dafür stammten, ebensowenig in den vorliegenden Bänden einen auf Vorbesitzer. In den zwei Jahren bis zur Eröffnung des Goethe-Hauses 1943 war der Bestand auf 20 000 Bände angewachsen, eine Anzahl, die Zweifel an durchgehend legalem Erwerb hervorrufen muss. Anders als bei den für elsässische Museen konfiszierten Gemälden und Kunstgegenständen ist (mir) über Restitutionsforderungen in Bezug auf Bücher nichts bekannt. (Vgl. T.F.Rosebrock.

        Ueber die Vernunft. 262 S. Broschur d. Z. (Rückendeckel mit kl. Loch).

      Berlin, Christian Friedrich Voß, 1778. - Außerordentlich seltene erste Ausgabe. Hennings' philosophischer Freund Moses Mendelssohn zu der Schrift, die wiederum Emilie v. Schimmelmann gewidmet ist: "Es ist ein Wort zu seiner Zeit geredet, denn m. E. hat die Vernunft noch nie so sehr einer Apologie bedurft, als in diesem philosophischen Jahrhundert" (zit. nach J. Hild, A. Hennings, S. 34). Hennings vertritt seine Auffassung, die der wahrhaften Verpflichtung des verantwortungsbewussten Menschen, in der Hoffnung, damit auf die Denkungsart der Kopenhagener Kreise einzuwirken, die – nach Hennings – ihr Interesse mehr in der Vergangenheit und bei fremden Völkern suchten und daher den Blick für die alltäglichen Erfordernisse ihrer Umgebung, für Ordnung und Arbeitsamkeit verlören. Diese Schrift wurde jedoch damals kaum wahrgenommen. – Anfangs wasserrandig, letzte Seiten etwas sporfleckig. Unbeschnitten. – Seit 1950 kein Exemplar im JAP. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A Pair: [Morning], [Evening]

      London: Published by J. Watts, Dealer in Prints & Drawings opposite the Mews Gate Charing Cross, 1778. Mezzotints. Printed on laid watermarked paper. In excellent condition. [Morning] Image size: 9 1/2 x 13 7/8 inches. Plate mark: 10 x 13 7/8 inches. Sheet size: 10 5/8 x 14 7/8 inches. [Evening] Image size: 9 3/8 x 13 7/8. Plate mark: 9 7/8 x 13 7/8. Sheet size: 10 3/4 x 15 1/8 inches. This is a stunning pair of mezzotints of two hunting dogs catching their quarry, by John Watts after paintings by Abraham Hondius. Watts was a successful printmaker and publisher who was active in London during the second half of the eighteenth century. He was famed for his rich mezzotints, which he exhibited in London between 1766 and 1778. Watts scraped mezzotints after some of the most renowned artists of his day, but he had a special penchant for works by the Dutch masters, such as this handsome pair after Abraham Hondius, the celebrated Dutch animal painter. These rich mezzotints are a superb example of Watts's luxurious style of engraving, translating the energy and fluidity of Hondius's beautiful paintings into a dramatic example of superior mezzotint engraving.

        HISTORICAL REMARKS ON THE TAXATION OF FREE STATES, IN A SERIES OF LETTERS TO A FRIEND

      London, 1778. Quarto. Contemporary three-quarter calf and marbled boards, leather label. Spine rubbed, minor wear to corners. Bookplate on front pastedown with ink notes. A near fine copy, internally clean and fresh. Meredith responds to William Barron's HISTORY OF THE COLONIZATION OF THE FREE STATES OF ANTIQUITY..., published in London in 1777. Barron attempted to justify the taxation of the American colonies by drawing on the precedent of ancient Athens. The fifteen letters in Meredith's effort are dated from April 30, 1778 to Oct. 14, 1778. According to Howes, only thirty copies were issued, which rates a "b" in his system. This information is corroborated by John Almon's biographical note on Meredith in his BIOGRAPHICAL, LITERARY AND POLITICAL ANECDOTES (1797). This is one of two issues noted by Adams, this one with a three-line quotation from Thucydides on the titlepage. Among the rarest of American Revolutionary tracts.

      Venezia 1778 - Incisione in rame, colorata d'epoca. Mm 470x360La più affascinante carta della Nuova Zelanda, una delle prime a raffigura le isole. Con riferimento alle rotte dell'Endeavour. Arricchita da bel cartiglio raffigurante un villaggio indigeno.Antonio Zatta (1775-1797) fu uno dei più importanti editori di carte geografiche del tardo XVIII secolo italiano. La sua opera costituisce un importante punto di passaggio tra la cartografia antica e moderna, più attenta all'accuratezza dei dettagli geografici che all'abbellimento estetico ricco di motivi mitologici o d'invenzione, come era quello dell'epoca precedente. La sua opera più importante è Atlante novissimo pubblicato tra il 1775 e il 1789. Bell'esemplare con discreti margini, inusuali perché essendo la lastra di questa carta più grande delle normali, i margini si trovano spesso tagliati.Copper engraving, original colour, mm 470x360. One among the first maps of New Zealand, showing Cook's voyages, and probably the most attractive, with reference to the Endeavour's path during 6 months sailing.The map delineates two islands, shows Cook's tracks around them, and a nice topographical detail. The decorative cartouche, in full original colour, shows a native village scene.Antonio Zatta is among the most important italian map editors of the late XVIII century. His most important work is Atlante novissimo published between 1775 and 1789. Good example with margins (generally trimmed); some very light foxing mainly in margins.

      [Squirrel Hill Farm, Pa.] Jan. 15, 1778. - 1p., docketed on verso. Folio. Some loss to right margin, repaired, affecting a few words of text; small loss to left margin, repaired, not affecting text. Bottom of sheet trimmed, affecting post script. Washed and pressed; silked on verso. Fair. In a half morocco box. Letter of complaint written by Thomas Galbraith to General Edward Hand, stationed at Fort Pitt, decrying the damage to his property caused by the militia stationed at Palmers Fort. He writes, "My farm at Squirrel Hill hath been this Fall their place of calling at when out on scout or on their necessary occasions to their farms. My fencing is burnt & the fields laid open, the house pillaged of the farming utensils, the grain of which there was a large quantity left a prey to cattle. When I heard militia being stationed on the frontiers by your approbation, I considered my property as safe. Unless I have satisfaction made, in a regular way, it will make no odds to me whether the enemy destroys my property or the militia takes it by violence or robbery at a time when I am rendering my personal services to my county." The services to which Galbraith refers concerned property destruction of his own. Galbraith was appointed an Agent of Forfeited Estates in October 1777, and in that capacity he confiscated the properties of Loyalists in Westmoreland County.

        Storia dell'America settentrionale.

      Venezia: dalle stampe di Antonio Zatta 8vo (19 cm; 7.5"). 2 vols. in 1, of 3. I: iii, 288 pp. II: [2] f., 294 [i.e., 298] pp.. 1778 Guillaume Thomas François Raynal (1713?-96) wrote his seven-volume account of the European colonies in the East and West Indies with the help of the coteries of philosophes whose salons he frequented: Indeed Diderot is credited with the authorship of up to a third of it, and Holbach, Pechméja, and Paulze also contributed. This Italian translation is of Books 17 and 18 of the original seven-volume work (first published Amsterdam, 1770, and an anonymous continuation); dealing strictly with North America, it has much to say about the political turmoil of the English colonies, the Continental Congress, etc., but also about Canada, native Americans, the border regions of Florida and Louisiana, and French interests. A third volume that appeared in 1780, but is not present here, carried the story "fino alla primavera del 1779 nella quale, oltre alla guerra civile trà la Gran Bretagna, e le Colonie Unite, si descrive anche quella trà la prima, e la Francia. Contemporary vellum over paste boards, gilt caramel-colored spine label, all edges blue. Some gatherings of leaves browned from impurities in the water during the paper manufacture, and occasional foxing or other light staining. Without vol. 3, later published, and, that aside, a => rather nice copy.

        Composed Doric Order in the Eating Room with Entablature over the Doorway

      London, 1778. Copper engraving. Engraved by T. Vivares. In excellent condition. An elegant engraving the columns and entablature in the dining room at Shelburne House in Berkeley Square, in London. Robert and his brother James Adam forever changed the face of British architecture by introducing innovative Classical design ideas. From 1754-57, Robert lived in Italy where he had a long productive friendship with Piranesi, which was inspirational for both men. Adam's first book, on Diocletian's palace in Dalmatia, is clearly very like the archaeological investigations Piranesi was making at the same time of similar ruins. Piranesi's friendship and passion for Roman Classicism were seminal influences on Adam, and the greatest single factor, other than his own talent, in the work Adam produced on his return to England. Upon his return, the brothers launched their career by building the Adelphi from the Thames to the Strand in London, which although not a commercial success at the time, included one of London's most cherished buildings, the Adlephi Theatre. Together, the Adam brothers designed and built some of the most famous buildings in England, including such bastions of English architecture as Kenwood House, Keddlestone Manor, and Syon House. To the interiors of their English country houses, the Adams brought wonderful ornamental elements in niches, lunettes, festoons and reliefs. Their classically designed buildings were so numerous in London that they changed the prevailing feel of the city and established their brand of neo-Classicism as the model of elegance and importance. It is asserted that the brothers originated the concept of the uniform facade attached to the typical English row house, an architectural device that distinguishes London buildings. This monumental contribution is evidenced in the Adams' designs for Portland Place and Fitzroy Square, and these were used as architectural models for the whole city. The brothers brought their talents into other areas by designing furniture to complement their beautiful interiors and by creating and publishing a treatise of design entitled 'Works in Architecture'. The work was published in three volumes over an extended span of time, beginning in 1773, with the final volume being published posthumously in 1822. Cf. Brunet I.47; cf. Lowndes I, p.8; DNB; Wilton-Ely, The Mind and Art of Giovanni Battista Piranesi.

        RÉPONSE AU PRÉCIS. POUR MESSIRE JEAN-BAPTISTE DE CASTERA...CONTRE Me. GARDON DE COLIERE...EN PRÉSENCE DU SIEUR LA VINCENDIERE, REÇU TIERS-OPPOSANT À L'ARRÊT DU 21 JANVIER 1754, DEMANDEUR & DÉFENDEUR [caption title].

      Port-au-Prince: De l'Imprimerie Royale, 1778.. 20pp. Quarto. Stitched as issued. A few contemporary manuscript notations. Minor soiling and wear. Very good plus. A remarkably early Saint Domingue imprint, previously unrecorded. The quality of the printing and production puts most North American work of the same period to shame. The pamphlet is a response to a court case from 1754 involving nine casks of indigo, tried by Jean Baptiste de Castera as defendant and Gardon de Coliere and his spouse Marie-Francoise Lombard as the plaintiffs. This document outlines the facts of the case and refutes them, with a final "Consultation" throwing out the case against M. de Castera. The origins of printing in Saint Domingue, now Haiti, are obscure. The best contemporary source, Isaiah Thomas in his HISTORY OF PRINTING IN AMERICA, says that a press was established at Port-au-Prince as early as 1750, but this is uncertain since the earliest imprints do not survive. In American libraries we can locate a 1767 Port- au-Prince imprint at the Library Company of Philadelphia, while the earliest held by the John Carter Brown Library (which has by far the most extensive collection of very early Saint Domingue imprints, with about three dozen prior to 1785) is 1769. The earliest we have ever seen in the market was 1773. The survival rate of early Caribbean imprints is very low, and as a result all Caribbean printing from the 18th- century is quite rare. No copies of this item is located in OCLC, and it appears to be a unique survival.
