         Relation des îles Pelew, situées dans la partie occidentale de l'Océan Pacifique, composée sur les journeaux et les communications du Capitaine Henri Wilson, et de ses Officiers, qui en août mil-sept-cent-quatre-vingt-trois, y ont fait naufrage sur l'Antelope, paquebot de la Compagnie des Indes Orientales

      First french edition in-4, illustrated with 16 boards (views, portraits, objects) and a large folding map. This edition was published the same year as the English original.Binding full calf vintage root. Back to nerves adorned. Title piece in red morocco.The Palau Archipelago is located in the east of the Philippines, in northern Indonesia, in Micronesia; Captain George Wilson and his crew in the service of the East India Company were shipwrecked on an island near Palau in 1783. The book tells how they were received by the natives and their king, and how they lived, until that the king had them build a ship to go to Macau, while entrusting his son to the care of Captain Wilson, so that he received a Western education. Georges Keate, using the captain's notebooks, drew up the voyage narration of the Antelope ship that departed from Macao. The introduction is a research in the literature of the existence of these islands. The book relates, of course, the habits and customs of the inhabitants. At the end of Volume II, a vocabulary of the Pelew language. It is interesting to note an episode which shows the king at war against the inhabitants of other islands, and who borrowed 5 men to the captain to accompany him to the war, the peaceful relations between the English and the king surely draw their origin from this curious diplomatic fact.The work was a great success, certainly because the testimony it rendered corresponded to this myth of the good savage that raged in Europe; Paul and Virginie de Bernardin de Saint-Pierre appeared on the same date.

         Essays on the Active Powers of Man.

      Edinburgh: for John Bell; and G. G. J. & J. Robinson, London, 1788 - Quarto (262 × 203 mm). Contemporary tree calf, red morocco label, gilt rules either side of raised bands, red sprinkled edges. Engraved armorial bookplate of McKenzie of Coul to front pastedown. A little minor surface and edge wear; occasional light spotting; a very good copy in an unrestored contemporary binding. With the half-title. First Edition. Reid succeeded Adam Smith and Hutcheson at the chair of moral philosophy at Glasgow. His Essays on the Active Powers of Man "combined a defence of the concept of human free will with an attack on aspects of Hume's theory of morals. [Reid's two Essays] shaped the teaching of moral philosophy in Britain and America well into the nineteenth century, partly thanks to the influence of his disciple Dugald Stewart, but also because they provided the basis for a systematic account of the faculties of the mind which was both well suited to the practicalities of pedagogy and consistent with most variants of protestant theology" (ODNB). His advocacy of common sense as a philosophical method was given fresh currency by G. E. Moore early in the 20th century, and more recently contemporary philosophers such as William Alston and Alvin Plantinga have paid careful attention to Reid. Jessop, p. 165.

         The Federalist: A Collection of Essays,

      New York: J. and A. McLean,, 1788. Written in Favour of the New Constitution, as Agreed Upon by the Federal Convention, September 17, 1787. In Two Volumes. 2 volumes, duodecimo in sixes (vol. I, 174 × 110 mm; vol. II 188 × 113 mm). Uncut in the original paper-backed boards, original number stamped to spine of vol. II. Vol. I backstrip replaced to style; vol. II largely unopened. Housed in matching late 20th-century red straight-grain morocco pull-off cases and red linen chemises. Black morocco book labels of Alfred Nathan. First blank and title leaf of vol. I torn across to remove early ownership inscription, loss to title including most of the word "The"; the remaining inscription reading: "John [–] New York April 9th St Dominic 1809" and listing the three authors. Some marking and early inkstains to boards of vol. I, light foxing and toning to same vol., small inkstain in margin of Q3v not affecting text; vol. II generally clean and fresh; a very good set. First edition of the "most famous and influential American political work" (Howes), and "one of the new nation's most important contributions to the theory of government" (Printing and the Mind of Man). The collection of 85 essays that came to be known as the Federalist Papers originated in the drive to ratify the Constitution, which was intended to replace the Articles of Confederation and create a more powerful and stable federal government. Ratification occurred on a state-by-state basis, and the essays were conceived by Alexander Hamilton as propaganda in support of the Constitution within New York State. The majority were written by Hamilton, later to become Secretary of the Treasury, and James Madison, "the father of the Constitution" who served as secretary of state under Jefferson and as president between 1809 and 1817. Published under the pseudonym Publius, the first essay in the series appeared on 27 October 1787 in the Independent Journal and continued in that and three other newspapers until 2 April the following year. The first 36 essays were published in book form on 22 March 1788, with the second volume appearing on 28 May, so that essays 78–85 were published as a book before their appearance in the press. The Federalist Papers have profoundly influenced the interpretation of the Constitution, and have been described by historian Richard B. Morris as an "incomparable exposition of the Constitution, a classic in political science unsurpassed in both breadth and depth by the product of any later American writer" (The Forging of the Union, p. 309). Only 500 copies were printed, and due to the size difference between vols. I and II, most sets include a second volume that has been trimmed down to match the first. Uncut sets in the original boards are extremely uncommon.

         The Debates and Proceedings of the Convention of the State of New-York, assembled at Poughkeespsie, on the 17th June, 1788. To deliberate and decide on the Form of Federal Government recommended by the General Convention at Philadelphia, on the 17th September, 1787. Taken in short hand

      First edition. This rare volume documents Alexander Hamilton's heroic efforts to secure New York's ratification of the Constitution. In September 1787 the General Convention in Philadelphia sent the proposed Constitution to the states for ratification. One of the most contentious battlegrounds was New York. Without its ratification the new nation would be crippled from the outset. Alexander Hamilton, leader of the New York Federalists, laid the groundwork for his campaign by publishing a series of Federalist papers in newspapers beginning in October 1787. But by June 1788 he saw that the effort was in trouble. Hamilton wrote to James Madison, "the more I can penetrate the views of the anti-federal party in this state, the more I dread the consequences of the non adoption of the Constitution by any of the other states, the more I fear an eventual disunion and civil war." When the New York convention commenced that month, ratification was in jeopardy: Anti-Federalist delegates out-numbered Federalists 47 to 20. An experienced and eloquent courtroom advocate, Hamilton marshaled every argument available to the Federalists. In these speeches Hamilton presents in detail the central themes of the debate: balance of powers, federalism, the bicameral legislature, representation and apportionment, the power of the executive, defense, and so on. This rare volume presents many of the speeches of Hamilton, John Jay and other Federalists, as well as those of George Clinton and the other anti-Federalists. REVISED BY HAMILTON FOR PUBLICATION. "From a letter in the Lamb papers (NYHS) it appears probable that at least Hamilton, Jay and Lansing revised their speeches, though Francis Childs, the reporter, virtually in his preface says that no such revision took place." (P.L. Ford, Pamphlets on the Constitution of the United States). Thanks to Hamilton's efforts, New York ratified the Constitution by a vote of 30-27. This rare volume represents a pivotal moment in the establishment of the new nation. VERY RARE. Only two other examples (the Streeter copy and a rebound copy with library stamps) appear in the auction records of the past century.

         The Federalist: a collection of essays written in favor of the new constitution

      New York: John and Andrew M'Lean, 1788 A spectacular association copy of The Federalist in original boards. Two volumes. Original boards, rebacked in paper, untrimmed. Title reinserted in volume one, light foxing, a few stains, minor repair to last leaf. An outstanding set. First edition of The Federalist, the most sought-after of all American books. An exceptional copy in the original boards, with the edges untrimmed. A splendid association copy from the library of Major Roger Alden. Alden enlisted as a soldier in Benedict Arnold's expedition to Quebec in September 1776. He fought at Germantown in October 1777, and spent the winter at Valley Forge. He rose through the ranks, ultimately serving as aide-de camp, with the brevet rank of Major, to Brigadier General Jedediah Huntington. After the war Alden was elected deputy secretary of the Continental Congress, became deputy secretary of Foreign Affairs under Washington, and was the man entrusted with the original Constitution after its signing. "On September 18, 1787, the morning after it had been signed, the [Constitution] was placed on the 11:00 a.m. stagecoach for delivery to the Congress in New York City. There all the papers of the Convention were entrusted to Roger Alden, deputy secretary of the Congress" (Kammen, A Machine That Would Go of Itself: The Constitution in American Culture, p. 72). Two years later, Alden was again entrusted with the great state papers, this time including the Declaration of Independence. When the new government was formed in 1789, President Washington ordered Charles Thomson, secretary of the Continental Congress, "to deliver the Books, Records, and papers and the late Congress, the Great Seal to Mr. Roger Alden, the late Deputy Secretary of Congress; who is requested to take charge of them until farther directions shall be given." Alden was keenly interested in the debates surrounding the new government, and he evidently treasured his copy of The Federalist, signing each volume on the cover and on the title. "Few issues in American history have engrossed public attention like the debate about whether to adopt the Constitution. Roger Alden joked to brother-in-law Samuel William Johnson [in a letter dated December 31, 1787] that 'the report of the Convention affords a fruitful subject for wits, politicians and Law-makers-the presses, which conceived by the incubation of the Convention are delivered from the pangs of travail, & have become prolific indeed-the offspring is so numerous, that the public ear has become deaf to the cries of the distressed, and grow impatient for the christening of the first born'" (Kramer, "Putting the Politics Back into the Political Safeguards of Federalism" in Columbia Law Review, January 2000, p. 251). In July 1789, the First Congress under the new Constitution created the Department of Foreign Affairs and directed that its Secretary should have "the custody and charge of all records, books, and papers" kept by the department of the same name under the old government. When Washington wrote to Thomas Jefferson in Paris on October 13, 1789, offering him the post of Secretary of State, he suggested Roger Alden to be his assistant: "Unwilling, as I am, to interfere in the direction of your choice of assistants, I shall only take the liberty of observing to you, that, from warm recommendations which I have received in behalf of Roger Alden, Esq., assistant Secretary to the late Congress, I have placed all the papers thereunto belonging, under his care. Those papers, which more properly appertain to the office of Foreign Affairs, are under the superintendence of Mr. Jay, who has been so obliging as to continue his good offices, and they are in the immediate charge of Mr. Remsen." This extraordinary survival, worthy of the most discriminating collector, combines excellent original condition with an outstanding Founding era provenance. This is one of the most desirable examples of The Federalist remaining in private hands. Provenance: Roger Alden (175.

(Lausitzisches Magazin 1788, Band 21, S.337) - Stolls auflklärerische Positionen richtet sich hauptsächlich gegen die Anhänger Swedenborgs, Jacob Böhmes u. die "Theosophen" im allgemeinen: "Ich habe verschiedene dieser Secte ausgeforschet und gefunden, dass sie unter ihrer Weißheit in göttlichen Dingen die Cabbalam, die Magie und Alchymie verbergen, dass sie bey einer scheinbaren Verläugnung iher selbst und aller zeitlich Güter, doch nichts zum Grunde haben als die vortreffliche Kunst, die unedlern Metalle in edlere, nämlich in Gold oder Silber, zu verwandeln. Sie selbst wenn sie Protestanten sind, schreiben den catholischen Geistlichen diese Kunst der Verwandlung zu."
