        Political Essays on the Nature and Operation of Money, Public Finances, and other Subjects: Published during the American War, and continued up to the present Year 1791.

      Philadelphia: Joseph Crukshank, 1791 - Octavo (198 × 123 mm). Contemporary sprinkled sheep, flat spine ruled gilt in compartments, red morocco label. Short crack at top and bottom of front cover joint, corners worn, exposing board, one or two ink splashes to front cover. Some light spotting and the occasional marginal pencil mark; a fine copy in a very well preserved contemporary binding.

O.V.C." with the printed library bookplate of the Middlesex County Historical Society of Connecticut, noting the book as a gift from Mrs O. V. Coffri in 1906. First collected edition, containing twenty-five essays and two tables, at least one essay previously unpublished, as well as a new preface and notes. Webster was one of the leading nationalists of the 1780s, a prolific and highly effective publicist on behalf of a federal constitution and national economic institutions, especially a central bank. Indeed, his writings had a major influence on the establishment of the First Bank of the United States. Included in the present work are his tracts favouring the creation of a Secretary of Finance under the articles of Confederation, the Bank of North America and the First Bank of the United States, and supporting the adoption of the constitution. Also included is Webster's prophetic essay outlining the future constitution, Dissertation on Political Union, first published in 1783. Jefferson had three of these essays in his library, the Essay on Credit (Sowerby 3036), the Plea for the poor soldiers (ibid. 3153) and the Remarks on the address of Sixteen Members of the Assembly of Pennsylvania (ibid. 3019).

        Tableau Encyclopédique et Méthodique des Trois Règnes de la Nature: VERS, COQUILLES, MOLLUSQUES ET POLYPIERS.

      Paris, Agasse, 1791-1790. 5 volumes. 4to (292 x 240mm). With 392 engraved plates. Contemporary boards (4 vols.) and contemporary half calf. The complete invertebrate section of the 'Encyclopédie Méthodique' comprises 493 engraved plates. We offer the first 390 plates and 2 bis plates. We have added an extra volume with plates 287-390 on shells. These extra plates have not been included in the total count of plates. The shell section of a complete copy covers plates 160 to 471. All plates are suberbly drawn and engraved, many by De Sève, Marechal, Redouté and other famous artists of the period. 'Bruguière is chiefly remembered for his writings on invertebrates in the 'Encyclopédie Méthodique'; and his excellent work on lower animals earned him a high reputation in his day... Among the larger French collections in private hands was that of the eminent botanist Louis Claude Marie Richard, which was advertised for sale in 1819. If the advertisement is to be believed it must have been very fine indeed; for it included the valuable Hwass collection and 167 paintings of shells executed by J. Barraband, many of them being the originals from which the illustrations of the 'Encyclopédie Méthodique' were engraved' (Dance pp. 63 & 98). About 20 plates have waterstaining.//Nissen ZBI, 4621.

        Korte aanmerkingen over het Oude & Nieuwe Testament voor ongeleerden. [with] De Apokryfe boeken.

      Amsteldam: Martinus de Bruijn 8vo (22.7 cm, 8.9"). 9 vols. O.T.: I: [4], 388 pp. II: [4], 396 pp. III: [8], [429]–1011, [1] pp. IV: [4], 624 pp. V: [2], 582 pp. VI: [4], 442, [2], [443]–656, iv pp. Apocr.: [4], 456, [4], 342 pp. N.T.: I: [4], 134, [2], 135–187, [3], 189–282, [2], [283]–514 pp. II: viii, 489, [1] pp.. 1791–98 Nine-volume set of Biblical commentary intended for laypeople rather than theologians, incorporating extensive quotations from both Testaments in Dutch. Van Hamelsveld, a Christian Hebraist, preacher, and professor of theology at Utrecht, suffered a period of unpopularity due to his political activism and association with the Patriot party, but following his death his reputation was rehabilitated. His translations of the Old and New Testaments from the original languages are well regarded, with Houtman taking particular note of the fluency and free nature of van Hamelsveld's Old Testament with respect to word choice and sentence structure. This is the first edition of the Old Testament commentary and the second of the New (which was first published in 1789–90). An entire volume is dedicated to the Apocrypha; in the other volumes, each section has a separate title-page. Scarce: OCLC locates only three U.S. holdings, one of which has since been deaccessioned. Contemporary half mottled calf with speckled paper–covered sides, spines gilt extra with gilt-stamped leather title and volume labels; rubbed, paper starting to peel at a few edges, some spines with unobtrusive chips or a gilt-stamped decoration rubbed away, one spine with portion of leather (rather bigger than a "chip") lost at head. Lower (closed) edges institutionally rubber-stamped, front pastedowns each with institutional bookplate. Page edges untrimmed. Waterstaining to upper inner portions throughout (a bit difficult to visualize the accident); otherwise, occasional minor spotting only. Vol. I of N.T. with back fly-leaf excised. Vol. I of O.T. with pencilled ownership inscription on front free endpaper, one leaf with short tear from outer margin not touching text, one blank intermediary leaf excised. Apocrypha with hole to one sectional title affecting one letter. => A sturdy set with a great deal of shelf appeal.

        [DOCUMENT SIGNED BY TOBIAS LEAR CONCERNING GOODS IMPORTED FOR PRESIDENT GEORGE WASHINGTON]

      Havre de Grace [Md.], 1791. [1]p. Old fold lines. Minor loss at fold; another minor loss due to ink burn. Minor soiling. Very good. In a grey folio-sized cloth folder, gilt leather label. Document signed by Tobias Lear in the capacity as Washington's personal secretary, retrieving goods from the ship Henrietta Weeks. Lear retrieved one case of "plated wares" valued at $24.42, with a ten percent duty, and signed a statement that reads: "I do swear that this entry is to the best of my knowledge & belief just & true & contains as herein specified the whole of the goods, wairs [sic] or merchandise imported on account of the President of the United States in said vessel." Lear (1762-1816) is best known for the time he spent as General Washington's personal secretary (1786-93 and 1798- 99). He formed a close relationship with Washington and his family - he was married successively to two of Washington's nieces. Upon Washington's death, Lear spent nearly two years sorting out the general's affairs. The ANB states that "controversy over his handling of the general's papers, some of which disappeared during this period, would hound Lear the rest of his life." He subsequently served as U.S. Consul to St. Domingue and the Barbary Coast.

        Manoscritto di Supplica) Alla Santità di N.S. Pio Sesto Pontefice

      Ottimo Massimo felicem. regnant. per G.S.Negri, dalla Mole di Adriano (Castelgandolfo) A.D. M.D.CC.XCI (1791), - in-4 (cm 20x29), ff. 32 (inclusa una tavola su doppio f,; così numerati: ff. 4 n.n., pp. 3-56, 2 ff. n.n.), legatura coeva in cartone porpora goffrato e dora- Manoscritto cartaceo, vergato in vari colori, dorato, azzurro, rosso, sanguigna, riccamente figurato con bordure variegate, scene allegoriche, ritratti, animali, fiori; inclusa una tavola su doppio foglio, dipinta al recto e al verso. Dal testo si evince che l'Abate Negri (a proposito del quale non è stato possibile trovare alcuna notizia) era costretto in prigione a Castelgandolfo, ed ha prodotto questo volume per dimostrare al Pontefice le sue varie capacità nel campo della pittura, della scrittura e delle varie scienze e tecniche (meccanica, idraulica, orologeria), sperando di venire liberato. All'epoca Castelgandolfo era riservato a prigionieri di un certo rango, ecclesiatici concussi o laici condannati per reati politici o relativi a stregonerie. Il manoscritto presenta un gran numero di disegni ed acquerelli di buona qualità, alcuni strani e bizzarri: antiporta a colori raffig. il Papa genuflesso / titolo entro bordura con armi / ritratto a colori del Papa, entro ricca bordura, su fondo dorato / sonetto entro bordura rococò, su fondo azzurro / allegoria delle varie arti, con figure femminili con rovine sullo sfondo / iscrizione in oro, entro bordura con putti / anagramma numerico sul nome del Papa / testatina con veduta in rosso / finalino con bouquet di fiori / Scena allegorica con Ercole, a inchiostro violetto / Tavola su doppio foglio, al recto riproduzione di un bassorilievo su un sarcofago / al verso raffigurazione delle varie conoscenze ed invenzioni dell'autore: biblioteca, pittura, orologio e pendola, organo, strumenti idraulici, pneumatici ed elettrici / fregi con uccelli / Dio Padre, su un mappamondo raffigurante lo Stato della Chiesa, che regge un ritratto del Papa / iscrizioni in vari caratteri, ebraico, greco, gotico, latino antico, caldeo antico e moderno, ecclesiastico, siriaco, indiano, egiziaco. / due grandi ritratti, uno in sanguigna e l'altro acquerellato, copiati da Le Brun raffig. la Gelosia e la Gioia Tranquilla, passioni forse riferite all'atto criminoso del Negri / acquerello con veduta di castel Sant'Angelo, con supplica del Negri "chiuso volete ch'io viva pel mancamento mio". / acquerello raffig. un'istrice, con versi / supplica con figure di uomo e di uccello con fregi calligrafici / stemma papale policromo retto da angeli / interpretazione degli emblemi dello stemma / sonetto relativo alle vicende ed agli studi dell'autore ("mettetemi alle prove, che troverete il vero") / cesta di fiori, su tavolini / acquerello di una farfalla / acquerello di un pappagallo / preghiera in illirico e rumeno / allegoria della pace (2 figure femminili e la colomba) / disegno e spiegazione di una macchina per tagliare le lime / acquerello di un papero / conclusione entro composizione con farfalla a colori e putti musicanti in azzurro. Manoscritto estremamente curioso ed inusuale, adorno di disegni, acquerelli, e calligrafie assai variati, e di ottimo gusto popolare. Pio VI (Giannangelo Braschi, n. a Cesena nel 1717) fu eletto Papa nel 1775, guidò la Chiesa durante la Rivoluzione Francese e l'occupazione dello Stato da parte di Napoleone; morì in fuga nel 1799.

      Lisbon, Na Offic. de Antonio Gomes, 1791. - 2 volumes. 8°, contemporary mottled calf (worn, defective for less than 1 cm. at head and foot of spine of first volume, short tear at head of spine on second volume), smooth spines with gilt bands, crimson morocco lettering pieces with short title in gilt, citron label with gilt volume numbers within a wreath; first volume recased with later marbled endleaves; second volume has contemporary marbled endleaves; all text block edges marbled. Small typographical headpiece at beginning of text in each volume. A few stains. In good condition overall. Old ink signature ("Torres") on front flyleaf verso of first volume. Armorial bookplate in each volume of the Condessa dos Arcos, Dona Maria Margarida (see below). (8 ll.), 319 pp.; (4 ll.), 297 pp., 4 engraved plates of coins from ancient times to the eighteenth century. *** Third edition of the author's most important work, which first appeared in Lisbon, 1655, with a second edition of Lisbon, 1740. @@The fourth discourse (II, 1-106) is on coinage, beginning with Roman coins that circulated in the province of Lusitania and continuing with the Visigothic kings and Arab coinage. The coinage of the kings of Portugal is covered beginning with Dom Sancho I (the first king known for certainty to have operated a mint) to Dom João IV. Notably absent is the coinage of the Spanish monarchs D. Filipe II, III, and IV, who ruled Portugal as D. Filipe I, II, and III. Subsequent editors added comments on the coinage of D. João IV's successors through D. Maria I.The 1655 edition of the Noticias has engravings within the text (pp. 151-191) that illustrate the recto and verso of 15 coins. The latest is a coin issued under D. João IV (r. 1640-1656) whose verso bears an image of N. Senhora da Conceição and the inscription "Tutelaris Regni". The 1741 edition has 18 images of coins within the text (pp. 146-186), with the three additions dating to 1695, 1726, and 1733. In our 1791 edition, the 18 illustrations have been shifted to four engraved plates. Although text was added to cover coins minted under D. José I and D. Maria I, the text makes no references to additional illustrations. Hence we assume Innocêncio's call for five engraved plates in this edition is in error. The Noticias includes a total of eight discourses: (1) on increasing the population of Portugal, (2) on improving the military organization of the kingdom, (3) the origins and coats-of-arms of Portuguese nobility, (4) Portuguese coinage, (5) the development of universities in the Iberian Peninsula in general, and Portugal in particular, (6) the evangelization of Guiné, (7) the causes of shipwrecks on the carreira da India, and (8) travel. A final section includes eulogies of Portuguese cardinals. The first discourse (I, 1-69) is an appeal for increasing the population of Portugal. Severim de Faria argues that a large population will promote industry and agriculture, and provide men for the army, navy and merchant marine. He cites China, whose large population provides manpower for industry and agriculture. Germany, Flanders, England and Italy are also cited as positive examples. As a counter-example he cites the kingdom of Grenada, which declined after its Moorish population was expelled. Severim de Faria also mentions the Azores, Madeira, Angola, Mozambique, Brazil, Cabo Verde, São Tomé, Goa, Diu, Cochim, Colombo, the Malucas, Ormuz, Malaca and Mascate.The second discourse (I, 70-177) is a sweeping analysis of the military organization of Portugal from a historical and contemporary point of view. Severim de Faria's topics include the role of the king, constable, and other officers the composition of the army, military law, and the traditional hostility between Portugal and Castile. In discussing ordinance and armaments, he considers problems of supply in continental Portugal, Funchal, Ponta Delgada, Angra, Ribeira Grande in Cabo Verde, São Tomé, Salvador da Bahia, Olinda, and Rio de Janeiro. Also discussed are fortresses and the defense [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Autograph Letter, Signed, to Ogden, Newark, NJ, March 28, 1791.

      1791 - Initiating an Action in New Jersey to Recover a Pre-Revolutionary War Debt Owed to a British Army Officer Harison, Richard [1747-1829]. [Ogden, Aaron (1756-1839)]. [Autograph Letter, Signed, to Ogden, Newark, NJ, March 28, 1791]. Single 9-1/2" x 7-1/2" leaf. Moderate toning, fold lines, minor edgewear, text in neat hand, later annotation to foot of verso. A well-preserved item. * While on business in Newark at the home of Abraham Ogden, U.S. District Attorney for New Jersey (1791-1798), Richard Harison, U.S. District Attorney for the District of New York (1789-1801) writes to Aaron Ogden, New Jersey lawyer, later senator and governor of New Jersey, stating: "I find it necessary that a suit should be commenced for James Stevenson in the circuit Court of the United States for [New Jersey] against the executors of Jacob Ford Jr." Ford had defaulted on a debt of one thousand three hundred pounds owed to James Stevenson, former captain in the British Army, the debt having been incurred prior to the war in 1773. Harrison asks that Aaron Ogden serve a writ in the District Court of New Jersey against the executors, whom he names. Harison was a highly regarded member of the New York Bar. He was the law partner of Alexander Hamilton at the beginning of his legal career and later served often as Hamilton's co-counsel. He was also a pallbearer at Hamilton's funeral and served as second in command to Mayor Richard Varick in Burr's trial for the murder of Hamilton. Aaron Ogden is best remembered as the defendant in the landmark Supreme Court case, Gibbons v. Ogden. He served as a New Jersey senator from 1801-1803 and was that state's governor from 1812-1813. Abraham Ogden [1743-1798] (no relation) was a lawyer and the first U.S. District Attorney for New Jersey. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
