        Letter. on the Proposed Abolition of the African Slave Trade

      1787 - RANDOLPH, Rev. F[rancis], M.A. A Letter to the Honourable William Pitt, Chancellor of the Exchequer, &c. &c. On the Proposed Abolition of the African Slave Trade. London: T. Cadell, 1788. Slim octavo, period-style three-quarter black cloth and marbled boards; pp. 56. $1650.First edition of Randolph's important 1788 Letter against swift abolition of the slave trade, published the same year Prime Minister Pitt, "substituting for Wilberforce," raised the subject in House of Commons, with Randolph instead proposing fresh regulations for slave owners and the slave trade, from the collection of the New York Historical Society.At a time when "the British share of the European slave traffic was higher than ever," famed abolitionists Clarkson and Wilberforce worked with Prime Minister Pitt in February 1788 to create a committee of the Privy Council charged with investigating the slave trade. Three months later Pitt, "substituting for Wilberforce who was ill, introduced the subject of the trade in the House of Commons. That session passed a bill sponsored by William Dolben that regulated the dimensions of slave ships" (Rodriquez, Historical Encyclopedia I:162). Dolben's bill, known as the "Middle Passage" Bill, was passed that same July, and Pitt ordered "Captain Parrey, a naval surveyor, to take measurements of slaving vessels docked at Liverpool. Parrey came back with surveys of several ships measurements, including those of the slaver called the Brookes (or Brooks). The Society for Effecting the Abolition of the Slave Trade used the measurements of the Brookes and created the now-famous Brookes diagram" (Encyclopedia of African American History, 285).Randolph's Letter". on the Proposed Abolition of the African Slave Trade, published soon after, is a key document in calling for restraint amidst demands for abolition of the slave trade. While Randolph praises such efforts, his Letter clearly signals the authority of those who opposed to the urgency of Pitt, Clarkson and Wilberforce. Randolph is especially mindful of how "slavery and the slave trade were tied closely to the rights of private property, the political freedom of colonies and states, and the economic rewards of international competition" (Davis, Homicide to Slavery, 244-5). He insists we cannot "pay the Tribute of Mercy without endangering the Treasury." A sympathetic reviewer observed that Randolph's Letter "inclines strongly to the cause of freedom". and since a total abolition of Negro-slavery is not likely soon to happen, he proposes a set of very proper regulations for the African trade, and for the better treatment of slaves in the plantations" (Monthly Review, May 1788, 429). By 1807, however, those who shared Randolph's views were confronted by Parliament's passage of the Slave Trade Act and the next year Clarkson's History, with its folding map of Brookes slave ship.

First edition. Winter (fl. 1787-1801),was a practical agriculturalist whose chief purpose was to advertise his patent drill machine. His invention is depicted in two views on the engraved plate.

The 16-page list of subscribers - printed on different paper and obviously inserted in copies after the book was printed - includes the following note: "Books were left at the Exchange and Bristol Coffee-Houses, for the purpose of subscribing; whereby the author might be the better enabled to ascertain the number of copies to be printed." Fine copy of a scarce book. Contemporary signature of John Darby on title. Modern ownership signature on free front paste-down of the historian of British agriculture G.D. Fussell, "March 1941." ?

The final volume comprises the very useful indexes. Morelli, the compiler, was librarian of the Marciana. "This catalogue is one of the best ever executed, not only from the value and number of the curious works described in it, but also for the valuable bibliographical notices of Morelli. The Pinelli collection of books long held a distinguished rank among the libraries of Europe: it was upwards of 200 years forming by the family, and comprehended an unparalleled collection of Greek, Roman, and Italian authors, from the origin of printing; with many of the earliest editions printed on vellum, and finely illuminated; a considerable number of curious Greek and Latin MSS. (biblical, legal, and classical), from the 11th to the 16th centuries..."­Horne, p. 721.

        Ueber Preßfreyheit und deren Gränzen. Zur Beherzigung für Regenten Censoren und Schriftsteller. 2 Bl., 172 S. Moderner bibliophiler Pappbd mit handschriftl. Rückenschild.

      Züllichau, N. G. Frommanns seel. Erben, 1787. - Sehr seltene erste Ausgabe der politischsten Schrift Bahrdts, "womit der philosophische Freigeist zum streitbaren Publizisten geworden war. Er zog aus der Naturrechtslehre von der Volkssouveränität die revolutionäre Folgerung, daß 'Menschenrecht über Fürstenrecht' geht." Unter den Kapiteln sind besonders hervorzuheben: 'Freyheit - zu denken - höchstes Kleinod der Menschheit', 'Was heißt Aufklärung?', 'Freiheit zu reden und zu schreiben, allgemeines Recht der Menschheit', 'Regeln der Duldung' und 'Schriftstellerrecht über den Regenten'. Das Buch erschien wenige Monate, nachdem Friedrich II. gestorben war und Friedrich Wilhelm II., der von Menschen wie Wöllner und Bischoffswerder beeinflusst wurde, den Thron bestiegen hatte. Bahrdts Wunsch, Friedrich Wilhelm möge das Buch lesen, beherzigen und den Gesinnungszwang lockern, ging nicht in Erfüllung. Nach dem Religions- und Zensuredikt des Jahres 1788 zog sich Bahrdt resigniert auf sein Gut bei Halle zurück. – Titel mit schwachem Wasserrand in einer Ecke. Gering fleckig, unbeschnitten. – Goed.

        Poems, Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect

      Printed for the Author and Sold By William Creech, Edinbugrh 1787 - Octavo. xlviii, [9]-368 pages, half-title, portrait frontispiece and subscriber's list present. The second state of the second edition. Besides the major point of "stinking" for "slinking" on p. 363, here the subscriber's list is somewhat larger than the first state of the second edition, Burns' correspondence reveals that the subscribers list grew at a faster rate than he had anticipated. Additional typesetting was required on the early pages through page 288. The new sheets on the second state were reset and published on April 17, 1787. From Burns own notes it would appear that there were 1500 copies printed for each state (with a total number of 2900 subscribers for both). Creech the printer and distributor was unable to sell a large number of his copies so sent some of them to London to be sold by A. Strahan and T. Cadell, thus this London imprint is the Third Edition. Consequently, the second state of the second edition has become the more scarce of the two states.

      London: Printed by James Phillips, 1787. 16pp. Contemporary marbled wrappers. Spine chipped, wraps faded and somewhat worn. Light soiling to titlepage, otherwise internally clean. Very good. A letter printed for distribution arguing in favor of the abolition of the transatlantic slave trade by England. Nickolls, describing himself as, "a native of the West Indies, though established in this country," asserts that the prohibition of slave importation to the Caribbean, with the specific example of Barbados, would increase the value of slaves and reduce the debts of the planters. He also urges better treatment and diet for those currently enslaved in order to increase individual longevity and overall population, and as such clearly does not envision an end to the practice locally. Nickolls says he has also resided in "the northern provinces of North America", where he argues the slaves age quickly because they are used to warm climates. ESTC T4828. SABIN 55238.

        Plan of the Siege of Charlestown in South Carolina

      London, 1787. This early map of Charleston Harbor illustrates in great detail the siege of Charleston by the British forces in early 1780 at the start of their Southern Campaign of the American Revolutionary War.It features geographical and topographical details, major routes, street plan, forts, ships and waterways. The map seems to have been issued at least four or five times: in 1787 and possibly later, a presumed separate issue; in Tarleton's "History of the Campaigns" (1787 & 1796), 1793 in Faden's "Atlas of Battles of the American Revolution"; and in 1794 in Stedman's "History of the Origin, Progress and Termination of the American War" (with textual changes.) Printed on laid paper with old folds indicating inclusion in a book, but without any detectable tabbing on either the back or margins. We presume that this is from Tarleton's "A History of the Campaigns..." with the imprint "London Publifh'd March 1ft.1787." below the neat line within the plate mark. Original spot hand color on barricades colored either yellow or with a slanted red line. 10" h x 11 1/2" w.The named of Hobcaw Creek appears with the word "Creek" printed beneath "Hobcaw" and there is no solid black margin line inside the plate mark that appears in the Stedman edition. See Sellers & Van Ee, "Maps and Charts of North America and the West Indies", #1561 for the Faden "Atlas" edition, which is plate (10) and lists "Gibbes Landing" rather than the "Gibbs Landing" of this edition. A little very faint foxing, but very pleasing overall.

        Ueber Raum und Caussalität zur Prüfung der Kantischen Philosophie. Göttingen: Johann Christian Dieterich, 1787.

      - First edition of Feder's attack on Kant's Critique of Pure Reason. Adickes 319. 'In the 1780s, Feder became involved in the debate about Kantian philosophy and took the anti-Kantian side. Although he was among the first to react publically to the Critique of Pure Reason (1781), he did not initially appreciate the importance and revolutionary nature of Kant’s philosophy. Most famously perhaps, Feder edited and published Christian Garve’s critical review of the Critique (1782), which drew a fierce and devastating response from Kant (Prolegomena, 1783). But he went on to author a monograph, Ueber Raum und Caussalität (1787), taking issue with some of the main tenets of Kant’s first Critique, especially transcendental idealism. (Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century German Philosophers). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, xxx, [i], 268 pp., contemporary yellow wrappers a bit marked, two paper spine labels, ink blotch on title-page and in one other place, small library stamp on title verso, uniform light browning, a very good copy with wide margins, uncut.

        Disertacion sobre las virtudes maravillosas y uso de la planta llamada Carqueyxa, conocida en Galicia por este nombre, y en otras Provincias de Reyno por una voz análoga á la misma pronunciacion. Escrita por . en el año de 1749, y reimpresa y aumentada por D. Josef Felix Maceda, Administrador Principal de la Renta de Aguardientes de la Ciudad de Segovia.

      Segovia, En la Imprenta de D. Antonio Espinosa, 1787. - 8°, mid-twentieth-century quarter sheep over marbled boards, spine gilt with raised bands in six compartments, green morocco lettering piece in second compartment from head, short author-title lettered in gilt, gilt rule to leather where it meets the boards, old (contemporary?) plain wrappers bound in. Small typographical vignette on title page. Typographical headpiece on p. 13. Overall in very good condition. Armorial monogramed bookplate of Luis Mallo. 65 pp. *** The present edition is significantly different from the other editions, all of which are rare - but this one appears to be the rarest. It seems to be the only edition edited by Josef Felix Maceda, and contains material on pp. 55-65 not in any of the others. A section titled "Noticias modernas de Segovia ." on p. 55 of the present volume continues to p. 63. Included, beginning on p. 64 and continuing on to the first four lines of p. 65, is a section titled "Advertencias para mejor formalidad y uso de esta útil flor." Finally, on p. 65 is a note about cooking the "raiz y la hoja" in white wine. There are also other differences. Comparing the present volume to the editions of Madrid: Imprenta de Hilario Santos, 1786 and 1787, the "Nota del editor" is greatly expanded. On p. 13, which begins "Nombres y vertudes de la Planta Carqueyxa" there is a paragraph, continuing to p. 14, and with a footnote on that page, which is not present in these Madrid editions. There are other subsequent significant variations in the text. This Segovia edition is more closely related to that of Madrid: Imprenta de Pantaleon Aznar, 1787, but there are also differences other than the final 11 pages. In addition to some minor variants, a section from pp. 40-1 of the Aznar edition, titled "Precaucion," has been omitted. Then, in the section which begins "Noticias adquiridas por el Edictor de algunas curas muy particulares, hechas por la Carqueyxa" on p. 51 of our volume, and on p. 43 of the Aznar edition, several of the cures mentioned are different. Regarding the edition of Madrid: Imprenta de Blás Roman, 1790, it appears to follow more or less the two Hilario Santos editions, with more or less the same differences from ours.The plant known as carqueyxa (Genista tridentata) in the Galician dialect, from the genus Genista, is a plant similar to what is known in English as ?Common broom? [Genista scoparia]. (See Henry Stephens, The Book of Farm, volume I, 1844, p. 347; see also ?Genista? in Bartholomew Parr, M.D. ,The London Medical Dictionary, London: 1809, Volume I, p. 701.) It is known in Spanish as carquesa and in Portuguese (and in some areas of Spain) as carqueja. It is a type of shrub typical of the Iberian Peninsula, known for flowers of a deep, intense yellow that bloom in May and June. The plant has long been valued for its medicinal qualities, and is still used by homeopathic specialists and in many folk remedies. Current herbalist practices defer little from Sarmiento?s Disertacion.Sarmiento describes how carqueyxa was made into syrup, which the poor and provincial people in Spain used as a remedy to purify the blood (p. 34). Carqueyxa was seen as an affordable alternative to an unnamed plant that was brought from Japan for similar purposes (p. 35). Pages 55-65 list cases where patients in the area of Segovia had read an earlier edition of Sarmiento?s work and improved their illnesses through these remedies. Treatments in this section include bathing in water infused with carqueyxa flowers from the Cebrero mountains of Galicia, which gave patients relief from rheumatism. Pages 55-58 tell of a patient who was forbidden to eat chocolate due to stomach problems. After drinking carqueyxa tea, the patient (Don Miguel Dovalin) was able to eat chocolate freely. Later pages describe patients being cured of gout by applying boiled carqueyxa flowers to the affected areas externally, with a cloth: one patient was even able to ride horseback again (p. 61). Carqueyxa tea is also cited as curing an [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Lettres de Mademoiselle Aïssé à Madame C......... [alandrini]. Qui contiennent plusieurs anecdotes de l'histoire du tems , depuis l'année 1726 jusqu'en 1733. Précédées d'un narré très court de l'histoire de mademoiselle Aïssé, pour servir à l'intelligence de ses lettres. Avec des notes, dont quelques-unes sont de Mr. de Voltaire.

      Paris, La Grange, 1787.In-12 de 1 feuillet de titre, 1 feuillet pour l'avis de l'éditeur, et p. 4 à 242, plein veau beige, dos à nerfs richement orné, pièces de titre noire et rouge, triple filet doré sur les plats, simple sur les coupes, dentelle intérieure, tranches dorées, mors et coins légèrement frottés, pâle auréole d'humidité au coin supérieur sur 10 feuillets. "Dans le bazar de Constantinople, au début de l'année 1698, une petite princesse circassienne fut vendue à un diplomate français. Ce dernier avait pensé en faire sa fille ou sa maîtresse, puis il choisit de faire coïncider les deux rôles. C'est ainsi que la belle Aïssé fut éduquée comme une aristocrate française et accueillie avec curiosité et bienveillance dans la plus haute société. Elle fut l'une des rares dames qui sut résister au Régent. A l'âge d'or du libertinage, Aïssé vécut une histoire d'amour et d'abnégation qui, parée de son halo exotique, allait devenir, à l'instar de celle de Manon Lescaut, un des premiers emblèmes de l'amour romantique et inconsolable. Aïssé ne fut pas seulement personnage de roman, très vite, et presque sans le savoir, elle devint écrivain. Ses lettres nous laissent entrevoir les aventures de cette héroïne de la passion, mais nous permettent aussi d'observer les facettes de la scène française à l'époque de la Régence. Chez Aïssé, la fraîcheur du regard, l'acuité à saisir le détail singulier, la légèreté de la touche sont des choses admirables." (Rivages). Edition originale.

I; early armorial bookplate of Richard Brooke; very slightly rubbed, but generally a fine set. One of the great surviving English family correspondences of the 15th century, "an invaluable collection of letters and papers, consisting of members of the Paston family, and others connected with them, between the years 1422 and 1509, and also including some state paper and other important documents" (EB). This extraordinary archive first surfaced in the early 18th century and eventually came into the hands of Thomas Worth, a chemist at Diss, in Suffolk. Worth sold them to the Norfolk antiquary John Fenn, who set to work collating and transcribing the collection. These two volumes, the first fruits of his labors, were dedicated to King George III to whom the original manuscripts were then presented. The manuscripts subsequently vanished, and some doubts were expressed in the mid-19th century about their authenticity; in time, however, fragments of the collection came into the hands of Francis Douce (fragments now in the Bodleian) and Sir Thomas Phillips. Fenn went on to prepare two further volumes which appeared in 1789; a fifth volume was left unfinished at his death in 1794, and was not printed until 1823. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Christoffel Schultz. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (incl. tekst) 51,5 x 62,7 cm.Er was aan het eind van de 18e-eeuw een sterke tegenstelling tussen de Orangisten, die wilden vasthouden aan de historische positie van het Huis van Oranje, en de patriotten. De Amsterdamse scheepstimmerlieden waren sterk Oranjegezind. Voor een armoedige beloning maakte men werkweken van soms 60 uur of meer. De werklieden stelden dus hun hoop op de prins van Oranje want van de liberale rijke reders en kooplieden hadden ze niet veel te verwachten.In 1787 komt het tot een opstand van de werklieden tegen hun patriottische werkgevers. De dag waarop deze oproer hardhandig de kop werd ingedrukt, is bekend komen te staan als Bijltjesdag, genoemd naar het belangrijkste gereedschap van de werklieden.Het gezag van stadhouder Willem V was zwak. In september 1787 werd hij te hulp worden geschoten door zijn zwager, de koning van Pruisen. Deze "omwending"' wordt op de prent gevierd.Prijs: € 1.650,- (incl. lijst).

        Renseignements sur un voyage à faire dans les Pyrénées

      2 Juin 1787 - ______ Format : In-folio. [375 x 230 mm] Collation : (22) pp. Broché. ___. ____ Manuscrit en parti autographe, signé du compte-rendu du voyage dans les Pyrénées de Gillet de Laumont, inspecteur des mines, destiné à Louis-Alexandre de La Rochefoucauld. "Je vais donner une note succincte de mon voyage en 1786, qui pourra être de quelque utilité à M. le duc de La Rochefoucaud." Laumont a visité les nombreuses mines pyrénéennes et décrit les curiosités minéralogiques de l'Ariège au Béarn. Le duc de La Rochefoucauld projetait visiblement de parcourir cette région. Ce récit est accompagné de quelques conseils de voyage, "Un voyage intéressant mais fatigant est celui du Port d'Oo" et il ne manque pas de citer les noms des guides locaux qu'il faut employer. François-Pierre-Nicolas Gillet de Laumont, accompagné de son ami Lelièvre, autre géologue, est parti de Toulouse, à la fin de Juillet 1786 pour parcourir l'Ariège (Pamiers, Vic-Dessos, montagne de Lers, Etang d'Arbu, Aulus), puis les régions de Saint-Béat, Bagnères de Luchon, Bagnères de Bigorre, Barèges, Gavarnie, Gèdre, Héas, Eaux-Bonnes, Eaux-Chaudes, le chemin de la mâture, la vallée d'Aspe, Mauléon, vallée de Baigory, Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, Salies. puis est passé à Bordeaux et Saintes, pour revenir à Paris, fin Novembre "à cheval, parmi les neiges et les frimas". "En parcourant la chaîne des Pyrénées, [Laumont et Lelièvre] découvrirent ensemble le dipyre [.], les fossiles des tours de Marboré et de la Brèche de Rolland, fossiles qui depuis ont servi à déterminer les diverses révolutions que ces hautes montagnes ont éprouvées." (Héricart de Thury, Annales des Mines, 1834). En-tête de ce manuscrit on trouve ses jugements sur les ouvrages sur le sujet. Palassou, a écrit son "Essai de minéralogie des Pyrénées", "plus en voyageur qu'en minéralogiste". "Mr. de la Peyrouse a donné des descriptions très intéressantes pour le minéralogiste dans le Journal de physique en Juin 1785." "L'ouvrage le plus complet, le plus exact" est celui du baron de Dietrich. Le manuscrit est de la main d'un copiste professionnel. Laumond a ajouté dans les marges de longues notes complémentaires. Une note de sa main en tête du manuscrit : "Remis à Mr. Bergon le 2 Juin 1787 pour le faire passer à Mr. le duc de La Rochefoucaud qui avait demandé des renseignements et des mémoires." Dans une note, Laumont écrit : "Je prierai Monsieur le duc de La Rochefoucauld de vouloir bien, si Mr. Mariotte fond, suivre quelques unes de ses fonte, en le faisant rendre compte de ." Membre de l'Académie des Sciences (qu'il a présidé en 1784), La Rochefoucauld était grand voyageur et passionné par les sciences naturelles. Député aux États généraux de 1789, il sera exécuté en 1792. Ce voyage est rapporté dans :"Le voyage de Gillet de Laumont et de Lelièvre dans les Pyrénées à la veille de la Révolution française", par Franck Giraud, (ABC Mines, bulletin 29, mai 2008). D'évidence, l'auteur n'a pas connu ce manuscrit et donne les étapes de ce voyage à l'envers. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

Premier tirage de ce nouveau Rituel du diocèse de Lyon, imprimé sur papier vert et blanc selon les cahiers ; il est précédé du Catalogue des archevêques de Lyon, avec une courte notice biographique, depuis S. Pothin (IIe siècle), jusqu'à Antoine de Malvin de Montazet, nommé à Lyon en 1758, après avoir été évêque d'Autun pendant dix ans. Il a été élu à l'Académie française en 1756. Très hostile au Jansénisme, il combat leurs principes ainsi que ceux des Luthériens et Calvinistes dans son Rituel qui sera pourtant taxé de janséniste par le chapitre de Lyon qui va s'y opposer. Celui-ci est la survivance de la réforme de Leidrade, archevêque de Lyon en 799 qui fit évoluer le rite gallican de l'époque, en y introduisant bon nombre d'éléments du rite romain. Malgré une vive polémique au milieu du XIXe, au sujet du risque de disparition du Rituel de Lyon, c'est celui-ci qui va être utilisé jusqu'au concile VaticanII en 1962 (Patrice Beghain Dic. Hist. de Lyon et divers). Un mors inférieur légèrement fendu sur quatre cm, sinon bel exemplaire de cette édition originale peu courante.

        Plan of the Siege of Charlestown in South Carolina.

      March 1st 1787, London: - This early map of Charleston Harbor illustrates in great detail the siege of Charleston by the British forces in early 1780 at the start of their Southern Campaign of the American Revolutionary War. It features geographical and topographical details, major routes, street plan, forts, ships and waterways. The map seems to have been issued at least four or five times: in 1787 and possibly later, a presumed separate issue; in Tarleton's "History of the Campaigns" (1787 & 1796), 1793 in Faden's "Atlas of Battles of the American Revolution"; and in 1794 in Stedman's "History of the Origin, Progress and Termination of the American War" (with textual changes.) Printed on laid paper with old folds indicating inclusion in a book, but without any detectable tabbing on either the back or margins. We presume that this is from Tarleton's "A History of the Campaigns." with the imprint "London Publifh'd March 1ft.1787." below the neat line within the plate mark. Original spot hand color on barricades colored either yellow or with a slanted red line. 10" h x 11 1/2" w. The named of Hobcaw Creek appears with the word "Creek" printed beneath "Hobcaw" and there is no solid black margin line inside the plate mark that appears in the Stedman edition. See Sellers & Van Ee, "Maps and Charts of North America and the West Indies", #1561 for the Faden "Atlas" edition, which is plate (10) and lists "Gibbes Landing" rather than the "Gibbs Landing" of this edition. A little very faint foxing, but very pleasing overall.

Additional four pages: Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old fold lines. Light soiling, minute paper loss along some folds. Very good. In a grey half morocco and cloth clamshell case, gilt, red leather labels. Legal documents regarding the confiscation of the property of Loyalist and New York Attorney General John Tabor Kempe, the first of which is penned and signed by William Livingston, first governor of the state of New Jersey and signer of the Constitution. A reluctant politician, William Livingston nevertheless rose to prominence in colonial New York and New Jersey, in part due to his wealth and family connections. He was the first governor of the state of New Jersey, holding that office from 1776 until his death in 1790. Livingston was extremely popular with his constituents and was fiercely anti-Loyalist. "Livingston came to harbor a deep and visceral hatred of Loyalists, whose numbers and military operations posed a real civil threat in New Jersey. The governor's jaundiced reaction undermined his otherwise deep commitment to due process and his remarkable concern for the social and economic welfare of his constituents. Livingston was by nature and education a man of conservative political leanings, forced into the personally distasteful role of flamboyant revolutionary. Indeed, throughout the war he was a rebel with a price on his head. Exiled New Jersey Loyalists several times tried to arrange his assassination by offering a reward for his murder" - ANB. During this time Livingston was constantly on the move to avoid assassination, bringing him into close contact with his constituents. This sensitized him to their needs in a way few others in his station would know, additionally fuelling his desire for reforms, including the abolition of slavery. "Governor Livingston made a real effort to redistribute Loyalist land by means of a strong pioneering confiscation act, a reform that did not work well in practice, but was intended by the governor to expand New Jersey's social revolution" - ANB. John Tabor Kempe is one of those who lost his lands due to his political leanings. The first leaf is a certification of the document which follows, penned and signed by Livingston. It is embossed with the state seal of New Jersey, and the whole gathering is tied with a red ribbon. The inquisition into Kempe's property took place in 1779, whereupon it was found that: "John Tabor Kempe and Grace his wife...are offenders in manner as is described in an act of the general assembly, intitled 'An act for the forfeiting to and vesting in the state of New Jersey the real estates of certain fugitives and offenders, & for directing the mode of determining & satisfying the lawful debts and demands which may be due from or made against such fugitives & offenders and for other purposes therein mentioned' that this John Tabor Kempe, and Grace his wife, did go to the enemy and took refuge with them some time in April in the year [1776] & still remain with them." The second document, listing Kempe's lost goods and property, is titled "Rough estimate of Mr. Kempe's estate & interest lost in consequences of his loyalty." Kempe estimates his losses at an excess of £117,000, primarily in lost lands and estates, totaling over 45,000 acres. An interesting and informative set of documents, showing the high price of loyalty to the British Crown in New Jersey during the American Revolution. ANB (online).

      Boston: Printed by Adams and Nourse, 1787. First edition. Quarter tan paper spine over gray paper-covered boards, paper label on front cover. Generally fine copies, old stitching marks at inner margin, first item with foxing on three leaves, and small faded contemporary marginal notation; first leaf of second item with two creases to lower half and one leaf with paper loss at corner just affecting marginal title, final item with a few marginal pin holes and one tiny stain, otherwise very sharp and clear impressions in a fine binding.. [487-545] pp.; [546-627] pp. [87-168] pp. Beginning in 1786, only three years after the American Revolution had ended, an armed rebellion began in Western Massachusetts led by Daniel Shay, a war veteran, and composed not only of farmers but many others from diverse backgrounds who were angry about onerous taxes and imprisonment for debt, as well as cronyism, corruption and rules by an elite. The eastern rebellion was easily contained (in fact Shattuck, its leader was captured just after the time period of the Resolve), but the western insurrection under Shay remained serious enough that the U.S. Congress surreptitiously raised 4000 troops for the defense of the arsenal in Springfield under the guise of needing them to fight a coalition of ten Indian tribes out West (Resolve LXIII, Message of October 27). The courts were forced to close in Western Massachusetts, but the insurrection was eventually put down with thousands arrested. The first two documents (Acts & Laws) contain the major responses to the rebellion: Acts for: Preventing riots; Suspending the Privilege of the Writ of Hapeas Corpus; Acts for: Providing pay for the militia employed by the Gov't in suppressing the Rebellion; Amending an earlier act granting indemnity to offenders and providing for their trials; Describing the disqualifications regarding those who were guilty of treason; Suppression of Tumults and Insurrections; Disqualifying rebels from serving as jurors; Regulating the militia; and more. The Resolves began with an impassioned message delivered by Governor James Bowdoin on September 28, 1786, just two days after Daniel Shay confronted the militia Bowdoin had sent early under the direction of William Shepherd, and the Court was required to adjourn. "What led to the unwarrantable and lawless proceedings of those insurgents will be a necessary subject of serious Inquiry. The investigating the true causes of those proceedings may point out the proper remedy of them in future. But whatever may be the causes, it is impossible they should amount to a sufficient and justifiable reason for them. Every complaint, or grievance, that can be offered, as a reason to palliate them, is, from the nature of the Constitution, redressible by the General Court, the only body, within whose department it is, to redress public grievances. The application, therefore, to all other bodies, and all other modes of redress, are anticonstitutional, & of very dangerous tendency, even when attempted in a peaceable manner: but much more so, when attempted by acts of violence, for preventing the execution of the laws, and the due administration of Justice. These observations are strictly just, where there is a constitutional mode for the redress of grievance: and especially where those in Government, who have the power to redress, annually depend on the people for political existence." Bowdoin's last words were prophetic; he was not reelected, many of the reforms called for by the rebels were enacted, and a more powerful central government was created with the adoption of the Federal Constitution.

        Voyages dans les Alpes, précédés d'un essai sur l'histoire naturelle des environs de Geneve

Numerose tabelle a p. pag. e 3 tabelle ripiegate f.t. Restauri alle pp. 295-296 del quinto vol. e alle pp. 277-278 del settimo vol. Ottimo esemplare. Seconda edizione (prima edizione in-8°) di una delle opere più importanti dell'intera letteratura alpina. I primi quattro volumi sono impressi a Ginevra Chez Barde, Manget & Compagnie, i restanti a Neuchatel da Louis Fauche Borel. I Voyages dans les Alpes sono densissimi di innovative osservazioni geologiche, climatologiche, mineralogiche e di gustose notazioni di costume, e costituiscono il primo tentativo davvero approfondito di ricerca scientifica sulle Alpi. In essi si stabiliscono tra l'altro, per la prima volta, l'esatta altezza del Monte Bianco e la progressiva diminuizione di pressione in rapporto all'altitudine, con osservazioni sull'uomo e sugli animali. Horace Bénédict de Saussure (Conches, Ginevra, 1740-1799) fu eminentemente un fisico ed un geologo, ma si occupò anche di geografia, meteorologia ed altre branche scientifiche, dedicandosi in seguito alle ricognizioni sul campo nella catena delle Alpi, che attraversò 14 volte per i diversi valichi, traendone un'ingentissima messe di documentazione scientifica di cui i Voyages costituiscono la grande sintesi. Pioniere dell'alpinismo scientifico, ascese (terzo in assoluto) la vetta del Monte Bianco il 3 agosto del 1787, ripetendo la scalata l'anno seguente, restando 17 giorni sul Colle del Gigante e, nel 1789, scalando anche il Monte Rosa e, nel 1792, il Teodulo e il Piccolo Cervino. Perret, 3911: Un des principaux ouvrages jamais écrits sur la chaîne des Alpes. Il contient de nombreux développements concernant la flore, la géologie et les glaciers, mais relate également les tentatives d'ascension du Mont-Blanc, les premières ascensions dont celle de Saussure en 1787, ainsi que le sejour que celui-ci fit au col du Géant.
