        Extremely Rare and attractive hi-value Delaware Continental Loan Office Third Bill of Exchange signed by Signer of the Declaration of Independence Francis Hopkinson and issued to General Samuel Patterson of the famous "Flying Camp"

Third Bill of Exchange. Watermarked ""UNITED STATES 3"" across the center. Countersigned ""Saml Patterson"" as Commissioner of the Continental Loan-Office in the State of Delaware. Completed in manuscript. To the Commissioner or Commissioners of the United States of America, at Paris. Lightweight watermarked laid paper. Endorsed on verso ""Hugh Means."" Show-through and tiny holes at right edge. Slight tears at upper and lower edges, old paper strip affixed on verso. Good condition.Patterson was a Captain in the French and Indian War. In the American Revolution, he was member of Boston Relief Committee, colonel of Delaware battalion of the famous ""Flying Camp,"" Brigadier General of the Delaware militia, and first treasurer of the State of Delaware. After the British evacuation of Boston in March 1776, General George Washington met with members of the Continental Congress to determine future military strategy. Faced with defending a huge amount of territory from potential British operations, Washington recommended forming a ""Flying Camp"", which in the military terminology of the day referred to a mobile, strategic reserve of troops. Congress agreed and on June 3, 1776, passed a resolution ""that a flying camp be immediately established in the middle colonies and that it consist of 10,000 men ....""The men recruited for the Flying Camp were to be militiamen from three colonies: including 600 from Delaware. They were to serve until December 1, 1776, unless discharged sooner by Congress, and to be paid and fed in the same manner as regular soldiers of the Continental Army""Exch. for 500 Dollars, at five Livres Tournois p Dollars Numb. 568 … At Thirty Days Sight of this Third Bill, First, Second and Fourth not paid, pay to Mr Hugh Means or Order, Three Hundred Dollars, in Fifteen Hundred Livres Tournois, for Interest due on Money borrowed by the United States…"" On July 27, 1778, Francis Hopkinson was elected by Congress as Commissioner of Loans. Four signed Bills of Exchange were sent across the Atlantic. If the first bill was received, it was valid and used. However, many bills were lost or captured, especially during the Revolutionary War. As soon as one of the bills was exchanged in Paris, the other three lost all value. "

        A full and genuine history of the inhuman and unparallel'd murders of Mr. William Galley, a Custom-House Officer at the port of Southampton:

      J. Breadhower, at Portsmouth; J. Grist, at Portsmouth Common; W. Stapley, at Havant; W. Lee, at Lewes; T. White, at Arundel; and P. Humphry and W. Andrews, in Chichester. 1779. 12mo., viii 269 (3) iv 26pp., with seven engraved plates, with generally pretty minor dust-marking or soiling, contemporary calf, neatly and sympathetically rebacked, with gilt lines and raised bands and original lettering piece. A good, perhaps very good, copy. A very scarce early edition (ESTC showing copies at only 5 libraries: BL Brighton Central Harvard Law Huntington Un. of Memphis. OCLC adding Michigan Un.). The main text (without the sermon) had been printed in 1749 but is known in a tiny number of surviving institutional copies. (It went on to be reprinted several times in the 19th century). The criminal exploits of the so-called Hawkhurst Gang of smugglers, ruffians and thugs was a colourful chapter in the mid-18th century story of the seemingly relentless battle along the Sussex, Hampshire and Dorset coasts between the smugglers and the Customs Officers. It has been often written about and many an inn or public house along the coast has gained financially from a genuine or pretended connection with the smuggling industry. It is said that the trials and subsequent executions of so many of the ringleaders in early 1749 dramatically reduced the activities of smugglers along the south coast. The seven engraved plates, comprising nine actual engravings vividly illustrate some of the atrocious crimes of which the men were convicted.

        Dell' uso ed abuso della cioccolata.

      Venedig Locatelli 1779 - (18,5 x 13,5 cm.) 100 S. Moderner Halbpergamentband. Erstmals 1775 erschienenes Werk über die Vorzüge des Schokoladetrinkens. - "Is it cold outside? Why not warm up with a steaming cup of hot chocolate? So advised the 18th-century Italian physician Giovanni Anfossi, in. 'Dell’uso ed abuso della cioccolata'. His recommendation was not unqualified, however. Anfossi’s treatise on the origin, composition, and medicinal use of chocolate contains, among other things, arguments both for and against drinking chocolate. Ultimately, however, Anfossi praised the use of chocolate for its high nutritional value, its aphrodisiac qualities, and as a panacea for all sorts of physical maladies" (History of Science Collections). - Exlibris.

Jahrhunderts, entscheidend für die neue Bewegung des Landschaftsgartens nach englischem Vorbild.

        Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World.

      Paris: , 1779. By Lemuel Gulliver. 2 volumes, duodecimo (144 x 81 mm). Contemporary sprinkled sheep, smooth spines gilt-ruled in compartments with tan morocco letterpieces to second and third, twin gilt rules to covers, edges sprinkled red, marbled endpapers. Joints rubbed, craquelure to spines, light wear to tips and board-edges, vol. 2 front board with a little stripping and upper outer corner restored, very pale tide-mark to top edge of prelims in both volumes, else internally crisp and fresh. A very good set. A handsomely bound copy in an appealing contemporary binding, the Paris imprint unusual for an English-language edition of this date. Gulliver's Travels was first published in London in 1726 and sold particularly well in French, with the first translation appearing in January 1727 and an abridgement by Abbé Desfontaines in April; the war between Big-Endians and Small-Endians was readily intelligible as an allegory of the conflict between Catholic France and Protestant England, while Blefescu's manipulation of party divisions among the Lilliputians recalled how the French tended to profit from Whig-Tory wrangling (Erskine-Hill, Swift: Gulliver's Travels, p. 29). This edition is fairly well-represented in America and mainland Europe, but Copac traces just two copies in British and Irish libraries (BL and Cambridge).

        De l'administration provinciale, et de la réforme de l'impôt.

      Basle: [no printer,], 1779. [Bound with:] Manière de simplifier la plan proposé. Addition à placer à la fin de l'ouvrage intitulé, De l'administration provinciale et de la réforme de l'impôt. Quarto (256 x 195 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, triple line gilt rule border to covers, spine decorated gilt, red morocco label, red edges, marbled endpapers, green silk ribbon marker. Dampierre bookplate to front pastedown. Closed tear to the 12 leaves of the "Manière de simplifier le plan proposé" skilfully repaired, affecting one or two characters only; an excellent copy in a splendid contemporary binding. First edition, very rare, especially complete with the additional 24 page note. A French lawyer and economist, Le Trosne studied natural law philosophy with Pothier, planning to become a magistrate. He joined the Physiocrats in 1764 by publishing a book defending the free trade in grain and articles in the Ephémérides du citoyen and other journals, followed by De l'ordre social in 1777. In 1775, the growing difficulties of solving the problem of taxation, along with the decreasing revenues of the government drew public attention to the project which Mirabeau had been advocating as early as 1750. The Académie of Toulouse invited written solutions to this problem, of which this was one of the essays submitted. The work is an important source of information on the organisation of society before 1789. "A ponderous tome, scientific in tone, which, from the point of view of the financier, had the advantage of appearing four years before the work of Necker on the administration of the financial affairs of France; and from the point of view of the politician, of appearing ten years before the celebrated night of 5th August 1789" (A. Courtois in Palgrave). Le Trosne omitted to take into consideration the requirements of the clergy and the work was outlawed in 1780, the year of his death, which may explain its rarity. A two-volume octavo edition followed in 1788. From the celebrated library of the Ducs de Luynes, with the Dampierre bookplate.

        ANTIENT METAPHYSICS: or, the Science of Universals. With an Appendix, containing an examination of the principles of Sir Isaac Newton's philosophy.

      Edinburgh, J. Balfour and Co.; London, T. Cadell, 1779. Volumes I and II only of 6 volumes, FIRST EDITIONS 1779 and 1782. 4to, approximately 280 x 210 mm, 11 x 8¼ inches, pages: xxi, [3], ix, [1], ix, [1]-555; xii, [20], [1]-461, bound in modern quarter calf over marbled boards, raised bands, gilt ornament in compartments, contrasting gilt lettered morocco labels, new endpapers. Volume I: 2 small signatures, 1 crossed through and a number on title page, corners of first and last 20 leaves dog-eared and slightly dust-soiled, 8 of them neatly repaired with old paper at the tip, final 5 leaves have larger crease at lower corner just affecting text but with no loss of legibility, closed tear to inner margin of 1 prelim page, neatly repaired, 1 text page torn across and repaired neatly, no loss of text, contents otherwise clean; Volume II: the same inscription to title page as in Volume I, contents clean. Bindings tight and firm. Very good copies of Volumes I and II in first edition. Volume I contains 59 pages devoted to the principles of Newton's philosophy in the Appendix and Chapter XIX expresses some of the author's criticism of the Newtonian system. Volume II is subtitled "containing a further examination of the principles of Sir Isaac Newton's philosophy" and Book V is entitled Of the Principles of Sir Isaac Newton's Astronomy and consists of 146 pages in which the author finds fault with various aspects of Newton's Principia. The 6 volumes were issued over a period of 20 years from 1779 to 1799 but only the first two contain criticism and commentary on Newton's work. They are considered a defence of Greek philosophy and are firmly attributed to Lord Monboddo (1714-1799), a Scottish judge and scholar who is remembered today as the founder of modern comparative historical linguistics.

        THE CANADIAN FREEHOLDER: IN [THREE] DIALOGUES

      London, 1779. Half titles. Original plain boards, uniformly rebacked in period-style plain paper. Covers detached from first volume. Else near fine, internally crisp and untrimmed. Maseres was the attorney general of Canada from 1766 to 1769 and a staunch proponent of the rights of Canadians as British subjects, and particularly the religious liberty of the French Canadians, even though he was himself a devout Protestant. He was convinced that the harshness of the Quebec Act was a disaster for the Canadian merchants whom he represented in London, and for England's chances of holding its American empire together. This long argument, published over three years and in the form of a dialogue between a British gentleman and a Catholic Canadian freeholder, covers most of the pressing political concerns of the American colonies. It is interesting both from a Canadian perspective and as part of the larger argument over the more southern colonies. Maseres was one of the firmest Whig friends of the American colonies at the time of the Revolution. This is his longest and most elaborate political work, and the volumes are rarely found together. The present set includes the second state of the first volume titlepage, stating "in two dialogues," with the third volume stating "in three dialogues." LANDE 615. TPL 521. GAGNON I:658.

Il eut des contacts et des correspondances avec les plus grands d'entre eux, Tiraboschi, Bandini, Spallanzani, Giuseppe Gioeni, l'abbé Fortis, etc. Au cours de son périple italien, qui dura jusqu'à la fin de l'année 1793, ces nouvelles connaissances lui offrirent de nombreux ouvrages.
