        A New Plan of the Island of Grenada, from the Original French Survey of Monsieur Pinel Taken in 1763 by Order of Government and Now Published with the Addition of English names, Alterations of Property and Other Improvements to the Present Year 1780.

      London: By William Faden, 1780. - Fine folding engraved map (32 ¼ x 24 inches). Laid down on cartographic linen in 20 sections, showing the island of Grenada in detail, the title and key upper left, dedication to Lieut. General Robert Melvill lower right, scale center along bottom edge, decorated with a large compass rose, with original hand coloring in outline (a bit thumbed). Provenance: Manuscript title and ownership inscription of Hugh Percy, 2nd Duke of Northumberland (1742-1817) on verso. WONDERFUL MAP OF GRENADA FROM LIBRARY OF HUGH PERCY, 2ND DUKE OF NORTHUMBERLAND, BRITISH OFFICER IN THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION First edition. This large-format, very detailed map includes all landholdings, elevation, and water courses, as well as all the main towns, cities, and ports of Grenada. The key includes symbols for "Sugar Mills drove by Water," "Sugar Mills drove by Cattle," "Great Coffee or Cocoa Plantations," "Small Ditto," and "Pottery or Tile Kilns." Partner of Thomas Jeffreys, London's leading mid-18th century engraver, William Faden assumed sole control of the business after his colleague's death and continued Jeffreys's tradition of producing the finest quality engraved maps and atlases. Faden's fine engravings, in fact, made him one of the greatest cartographers of the 18th century. Faden's talent for mapmaking was such that he was named official geographer to the king in 1775, just five years before he produced this map. Hugh Percy, 2nd Duke of Northumberland, was a British peer and politician, and an officer in the British army during the American Revolution: "In 1763 and again at the 1768 general election, Percy was elected, unopposed, an MP for Westminster. In the Commons he supported the Grenville ministry, and in February 1766 he voted against the repeal of the Stamp Act [Percy] departed with his regiment in May 1774 for service in North America. He watched with increasing dismay as the situation deteriorated in New England: 'this Country', he told his father on 12 September, 'is now in as open state of Rebellion as Scotland was in the year 45' (Percy papers, vol. L, pt A, fol. 16). When at length hostilities began at Lexington and Concord on 19 April 1775 Percy played a crucial role in saving Lieutenant-Colonel Smith's force from destruction as it retreated to Boston. Percy's brigade, together with two field pieces, met Smith's beleaguered column on the road between Menotomy and Lexington. Percy's troops held the enraged Massachusetts militiamen at bay while Smith's men regrouped, and then escorted Smith's battered command back to Boston under heavy fire. His coolness was widely praised, and he became the hero of the hour in besieged Boston. In July 1775 he was appointed major-general in America, and in September major-general in the army. "In 1776 Percy was involved in the campaign in and around New York. After the British victory on Long Island (27 August 1776) he wrote that the Americans 'will never again stand before us in the Field. Things seem to be over with Them & I flatter myself now that this Campaign will put a total End to the War' (Letters, 69)-a misjudgement, but one shared by many of his colleagues. He took part in the storming of Fort Washington on 16 November 1776, and at the beginning of December he went with General Clinton on the expedition to occupy Newport, Rhode Island. In January 1777 Clinton left Rhode Island for England, leaving Percy in charge of the garrison. "Over the next few weeks Percy's relationship with General Sir William Howe (1729-1814), the British commander-in-chief in America, rapidly deteriorated. Percy complained at Howe's decision to reduce the number of troops under his command in order to reinforce the army operating in New Jersey. He was further aggrieved when Howe pressed him to send a large quantity of forage to New York, which Percy believed could not be spared. When Howe criticized a civil appointment that Percy had made on Rhode Island, then reversed the decision of a court martial over which Percy [Attributes: First Edition]

        A State of the Expedition from Canada, as laid before the House of Commons.

      London: J. Almon, 1780. - 4to., (11 x 9 inches). Fine folding engraved frontispiece map "of the country in which the Army under Lt. General Burgoyne acted in the Campaign of 1777"; and five fine folding engraved maps drawn by Medcalfe and engraved by William Faden, with hand coloring in outline (one or two short tears). Original publisher's paper boards with title in manuscript to front board, uncut (expertly rebacked to style, preserving the original printed paper spine label; somewhat scuffed with slight loss to extremities, one or two pale stains). Provenance: Early manuscript ownership inscription of Henry Churchill to title page. First edition. Burgoyne was given command of British troops in Canada in 1777. After successes at Fort Ticonderoga and Fort Edward Burgoyne was overwhelmed by Horatio Gates's forces at Saratoga. His troops suffered a crippling defeat at Bemis Heights at the Battle of Freeman's Farm, surrendering in October 1777. Burgoyne had been so convinced of the success of his venture that he had bet ten pounds that he would be victorious even before leaving Britain. In the event the defeat proved a vital turning point in favor of the Continental army in the War of Independence, giving France the encouragement it needed to join the American effort. Believing his defeat to be the result of lack of support from Generals Howe and Clinton, Burgoyne begged first an audience with the King, and then a court martial in order to clear his name. Eventually Burgoyne's case was heard in the House of Commons, and this is the account of those proceedings: "I read again my orders (I believe for an hundredth time) and I was decided. And I am still convinced that. [nothing]. could have justified me to my country, have saved me from the condemnation of my profession, or produced pardon within my own breast, had I not advanced, and tried a battle with the enemy" (page 15).

        Brieven van Ferdinand Cortes aan keizer Karel V wegens de verovering van Mexico.

      Amsterdam, Yntema en Tieboel, 1780-81.2 volumes in 1. Contemporary half calf. (top of spine sl. dam.). With large folding coloured map and 2 folding engraved plates. XIV,46,178; 298,(18) pp.* First Dutch edition. - 'A more correct translation than Flavigny's. The letters are properly numbered, second, third and fourth. An excellent preface and introduction are added, with additional notes, and an appendix, completing the life of Cortes' (Sabin). The first letter is still lost, the fifth was not discovered until 1777 and remained unpublished until 1844. - 'Cortés's Letters are unique among letters of the period by virtue of their much greater length and their structure as letters, or true narratives, rather than as itemized accounts. The Letters are much more than a mere narrative of political and military events during the conquest of Mexico. Cortés describes and interprets the reality in which he finds himself, fusing data with ideas, facts with proposals. His detailed descriptions provided the first image of a New World - a New Spain- for many Spaniards. Though Cortés' s Letters were written with a single reader in mind - Charles V- and were not intended as histories of the era and its events, they remain even today central documents of the conquest of Mexico' (Speake, Literature of travel and exploration, p.285). - A fine copy of the rare Dutch edition.Sabin 16962; not in Tiele or Cat.

With charming head and tail pieces. Interesting armorial bookplates of Thomas Philip Earl de Grey, Wrest Park to front pastedown, and Betsy Aikin-Sneath to front free-endpaper. Louis-lisabeth de la Vergne, comte de Tressan (4 November 1705, Le Mans - 31 October 1783, from a fall from a carriage en route to Saint-Leu-la-Fort) was a French soldier, physician, scientist, medievalist and writer, best known for his adaptations of romans chevaleresques of the Middle Ages, which contributed to the rise of the Troubadour style in the French arts. Aged 13, he was the companion of the young Louis XV, then lieutenant-gnral and king's aide de camp at the battle of Fontenoy. He was made governor of Toul and was summoned by king Stanislas to his court at Lunville, where he received the title of grand marshal. The first director of the Socit Royale des Sciences et Belles-Lettres of Nancy in 1751 and a member of several other academies in France and abroad, he was elected a member of the Acadmie des sciences in 1749 and of the Acadmie franaise in 1780. A friend of Voltaire and Buffon, he frequented the salon of Mme de Tencin and composed several odes as well as adaptations of chivalric romances, which he translated and adapted from Spanish and Old French, into editions which would be re-issued several times. He was also the author of one of the first treatises on electricity in French. Matteo Maria Boiardo (1440/1 December 20, 1494) was an Italian Renaissance poet. Boiardo was born at, or near, Scandiano (today's province of Reggio Emilia); the son of Giovanni di Feltrino and Lucia Strozzi, he was of noble lineage, ranking as Count of Scandiano, with seignorial power over Arceto, Casalgrande, Gesso, and Torricella. Boiardo was an ideal example of a gifted and accomplished courtier, possessing at the same time a manly heart and deep humanistic learning. Condition: In a full calf binding. Externally, rubbed. Front joint is cracked. Internally, firmly bound. Remarably bright and clean from the age of this book, with just the odd spot. Overall: GOOD..

      "Engraved and Printed for the Editor and Sold by him at his House in Warwick Street Golden Square St. James," [n.d. but c. 1780.], London - First edition of this book of precedency, engraved throughout. Joseph Edmondson was an artist of humble origins who had begun his career as a coach-painter, and became coach-painter to Queen Charlotte in 1763. "On 21 January 1764, thanks to the support of the new deputy earl marshal, Lord Suffolk, Edmondson was created Mowbray herald of arms extraordinary, although he continued his successful coach-painting business until his death. His brother officers, especially Stephen Martin Leake, Garter, regarded him as an ignorant and low 'mechanic', and only reluctantly did they now allow him, as an extraordinary herald and not a member of the college, access to their records and collections" (Ailes in Oxford DNB).Precedency gives tables of precedency of British men and women and provides a list of "collar days" on which those entitled may wear their official "collars" indicating precedency. The book was reprinted in a second edition c. 1785. Small 8vo (130 × 91 mm), ff. [ii], 14, engraved title and all text. Slight browning/offsetting from leather turn-ins. Contemporary calf, expertly and sympathetically rebacked. Old booskeller's label (G.A. Poynder, Reading). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Lazy Revolutionary War Doctor, Departing From His Life of Leisure, Reports on "Lord" Stirling's Failed Attempt On Staten Island

      Cranburry, NJ 1780 - Autograph Letter Signed "S. Vickers," to Andrew Craigie. Cranburry, N.J., January 17, 1780. 2 pp., 8 1/2 x 12 1/4 in. We believe the docketing to incorrectly identify the sender as John Vicker. Fellow physician John Vickers gives Dr. Craigie a nearly instantaneous account of Lord Stirling's ill-fated attack on Staten Island of Jan 15-16, 1780. Stirling's campaign was designed to surprise the British troops in their winter camp; the British were alerted, however, and were well fortified by the time the Americans arrived. Vickers also decries plundering of the island by Continental troops. Transcript"Dear Craigie, I have defered [sic] writing to you according to my promise, because I was in some expectation of spending the winter in Philadelphia; but the badness of the weather has detained me so long, that I have chose to defer my intention to the next year. I am really affriad [sic] you will esteem this excuse for my omission to be a mea evasion [my evasion], & to amount ad nihil [to nothing]; & therefore I will endeavor to procure a remission for this negligence by a frank confession-I have been for these three or four weeks downright lazy, & for the only & worse reason in the world, I have had more leisure on my hands, than I know what to do with it. However notwithstanding the inclination I feel to be lazy, I have laid myself this day under a penance of writing to all my acquaintance-Lord Stirling has just returned from his expedition against Staten Island. He has brought off a few of the inhabitants, some cattle and destroyed a few vessels. It seems he failed in taking the Fort which I believe was his intention from the great quality of snow which surrounded it and hindered his approaches. A party of our militia, who followed after the Continental Troops have surpassed the Hessians in plundering the Inhabitants; many of whom they have stripped of all their property. This conduct has so invited the indignation of the more worthy part of their Citizens that all their plunder which was found with them has been taken away and I expect it will be returned again to its owners on the Island.- I shall set off in a few days for Albany, where I hope since I have opened the preliminaries a Treaty of amity & Correspondence will be established between us on your part. Please present my Compliments to Dr. Glentworth."Samuel Vickers (?-1793) of Middlesex County, New Jersey, attended Rutgers University and was reported to have witnessed the university's first commencement when he was a senior in 1774. Various Rutgers histories refer to this report and offer a date range of 1775-1783 as his year of graduation. Nevertheless, on April 14, 1777, he enlisted in New Jersey as a surgeon's mate, and later served as a surgeon during the Revolutionary War.Andrew Craigie, Jr. (1754-1819) of Boston was apothecary of Massachusetts troops where he tended to the wounded at the Battle of Bunker Hill. After being introduced to Samuel Adams, he came to George Washington's attention and in 1777 was named the first Apothecary General of the Continental Army. Craigie was instrumental in procuring medical supplies and delivered portable medicine chests to the army. After the war, he began speculating by purchasing state debts via an insider arrangement of dubious ethical standing which did not appear to bother him in the least. He also engaged in land speculation in the Ohio valley. Further, he secretly purchased land on Lechmere Point in Boston, which he developed. All this made him a rich man, and he spent his money on a Boston mansion that soon "became a center of society." His biographer asserted that Craigie "entertained without regard to expense.kept dozens of servants and well stocked stables and wine cellars.[had] weekly dinners, great garden parties, especially at [Harvard's] Commencement season, and dances where the beauty and gallantry of the Greater Boston of the time held unprecedented sway."

        Thoughts in Prose and Verse, Started in his Walks, by John Hope.

      Stockton: Printed by R. Christopher: And sold at London by W. Goldsmiht.inter alia 1780 - FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. 8vo, 202 x 128 mms., pp. [iii] - xvi, 359 [350 Errata], 19th century calf, rebacked, with spine gilt in compartments, a very good copy, with the distinctive armorial bookplate of John Sheepshanks, dated 1852, on the front paste-down end-paper. The collector John Sheepshanks (1787 - 1763) built a collection of fine books, prints, and pictures. The author, politician, and nephew of John Hope , Second Earl of Hopetoun, John Hope (1739 - 1785) began writing in 1769. The Monthly Review in 1763 remarked, "This eccentric writer, whose thoughts seem to be expressed with the same undisguised freedom that they presented themselves to his own mind, has blended with his singularity a considerable portion of good sense. Though many of the pieces in this volume will no doubt be thought trivial and uninteresting, yet there are scarcely any in which the reader will not meet with something to entertain him." The London Magazine for 1780 also reviewed the work, taking Hope to task for not indicating when and where many of the pieces were first published, but later declares that "there are many curious, interesting, and entertaining pieces in this volume" and concludes with the inevitable pun: "Hope is a flatterer, delusive, uncertain, inconsistent; but a cheerful, entertaining companion."
