VRIESE, Willem Hendrik.
Bradley I, p. 51; Landwehr, Coloured plates 206; Paradisus Batavus 105; Pritzel 9838. First and only edition of the first catalogue of the plants and trees in the famous garden of the Spaarnberg country estate in Santpoort, a few kilometres north of Haarlem in the Netherlands. The Dutch banker Adriaan van der Hoop (1788-1854) expanded the estate by buying adjacent land and created the beautiful garden with exotic and tropical plants. Van der Hoop was one of the richest men in the Netherlands and an important collector of art and botanical books. His catalogue includes plants from all over the world, including almost 200 species from Australia.The plants were catalogued by the Dutch botanist and physician Willem Hendrik de Vriese (1806-1862). A second catalogue was published in 1849 by J.J.F.H.T. Merkus Doornik.Some wear to the spine, but otherwise in very good condition, wholly untrimmed and with two attractive colour plates.

CONTINENTAL CONGRESS
Aitken (vols. 1-2), Patterson (vols. 3 and 7), Claypoole (vols 4-5 and 8) and Dunlap (vols 6, 9-13), [Philadelphia or New York, 1788. (7 1/2 x 4 5/8 inches). Collation as below. Expertly bound to style half period tree sheep and marbled paper covered boards, flat spines ruled in gilt, red morocco lettering pieces A complete set of the Journals of Congress: one of the most vital records of the Revolutionary and Confederation period. A complete set of the Journals of the Continental Congress, remarkably difficult to assemble. These Journals contain the most vital documents from the Revolutionary period through the end of the Confederacy, and culminate with the adoption of the Federal Constitution in 1788. They are an essential basis for any comprehensive collection of the Revolution and early National period. On 26 September 1776, Congress had authorized Robert Aitken to reprint the two congressional journals that had appeared, in effect, as occasional publications "and to continue to print the same." With the loss of Aitken's press in the fall of Philadelphia, this responsibility devolved to John Dunlap and David Claypoole. A tradition had already been established by the separate publication of the Journals of the first and second Continental Congresses in 1774 and 1775. The first volume of this series, begun after the Declaration of Independence, reprinted those journals, and was issued concurrently with the second volume, both appearing from the press of Robert Aitken in 1777. The second volume included a printing of the Declaration. The volumes issued thus cover the entir … [Click Below for Full Description]

1788. Thomas Jefferson Signed Act of Congress Enabling Revolutionary War Veterans to Settle the West Secretary of State Jefferson signs an act enabling Virginia to issue Northwest Territory land grants promised to veterans for their Revolutionary War service. Jefferson had already played a critical role in the creation of a national domain and the opening of the American West by orchestrating Virginia's cession of the Northwest Territory to the United States.

HAMILTON, ALEXANDER, JAMES MADISON, and JOHN JAY
New York: John and Andrew M'Lean, 1788. First edition. This splendid example of The Federalist is one of a very small number of special deluxe copies printed on thick paper.Upon receipt of his thick paper copy, George Washington wrote, "When the transient circumstances and fugitive performances which attended this Crisis shall have disappeared, that work [The Federalist] will merit the notice of posterity; because in it are candidly and ably discussed the principles of freedom and the topics of government, which will be always interesting to mankind so long as they shall be connected in Civil Society."The Federalist is the most important book in American political philosophy. It is the fundamental document left by the framers of the Constitution as an expository guide to their philosophy and intentions. "These men saw a strong central government as essential to the maintenance of a stable economy. Their conservative views regarding property rights have had a lasting effect on U.S. Constitutional law. As a commentary on the Constitution by men included among its principal architects, The Federalist has been used ... as an interpreter of the constitution not only by laymen but by lawyers and justices of the U.S. Supreme Court" (Printing and the Mind of Man).Seventy-seven of the eighty-five Federalist papers were printed in newspapers between October 1787 and August 1788. The final eight papers first appeared in the second volume of The Federalist, published in two volumes in 1788 by John and Andrew McLean in New York. The work was originally known as The Federalist; the title … [Click Below for Full Description]
