        A Vindication of the Rights of Woman: with Strictures on Political and Moral Subjects

      London: Printed for J. Johnson, 1792. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. First edition. xix, 452 pp. Drab three quarter 20th Century green cloth with marbled-paper sides, spine lettered in gilt. Internally Near Fine with a few light stains along top edge that intrude slightly into margins; generally pages quite bright and generally free of foxing, though. Occasional thin tidemarks along bottom margin. Former owner's name written on front free endpaper, dated 1792. Binding has not fared quite as well as the text in its significantly shorter life, with wear, edge-chipped paper, and a dampstained corner. A famous rebuttal of contemporary conservative thinker Burke, who decried the French Revolution and individual rights. Wollstonecraft asserted that both sexes should have equal access to education, thereby bettering women as citizens of an enlightened republic. Many have viewed the work as proto-feminist, for it anticipates feminism in many ways, even though no such organized movement would exist for decades. Critic and author Katha Pollitt writes in a recent introduction to the book, “Mary Wollstonecraft was not the first writer to call for women to receive a real, challenging education. But she was the first to connect the education of women to the transformation of women’s social position, of relations between the sexes, and even of society itself." As such it represents the peak of radical Enlightenment thought, and a very important step towards universal suffrage.

His famous map "Amerique Septentrionale Divisee en ses Principales Parties" was derived mainly from Sanson?s and Jaillot?s maps of 1656 and 1676. At this time, California was no longer shown as an island, but as a peninsular, and the Great Lakes to the north are enclosed, which was another feature often shown incorrectly on earlier maps of America. This map has been published in 1792 in an Atlas which included 37 other maps of different countries.

        A Vindication of the Rights of Woman with Strictures on Moral and Political Subjects

      Philadelphia: William Gibbons, 1792. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. First American edition. (Published the same year as the British first edition, and preceding the Boston edition, also published the same year.) Contemporary leather with a recent leather spine, lettered and ruled in gilt. Expert paper mends to the title page and first page of dedication. Several, sparing old ink notations to text, ink to paste downs. Moderate foxing, light corner creases and light staining throughout. A famous rebuttal of contemporary conservative thinker Burke, who decried the French Revolution and individual rights. Wollstonecraft asserted that both sexes should have equal access to education, thereby bettering women as citizens of an enlightened republic. Many have viewed the work as proto-feminist, for it anticipates feminism in many ways, even though no such organized movement would exist for decades. Critic and author Katha Pollitt writes in a recent introduction to the book, “Mary Wollstonecraft was not the first writer to call for women to receive a real, challenging education. But she was the first to connect the education of women to the transformation of women’s social position, of relations between the sexes, and even of society itself." As such it represents the peak of radical Enlightenment thought, and a very important step towards universal suffrage.

      Artist: Elwe Jan Barend d ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: d1792 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Double counterlaid fold left due to the printing; - size (in cm): 48 x 56; - description: Decorative map of Arabia, Persia, Turkey and Armenia with two catouches, showing the emperor and trading ships of the time.; - vita of the artist: Jan Barend Elwe ( 177 - 1815), was a Dutch publisher and book seller who reissued maps by De L Isle and Ottens and some other cartographers in the late 18th century. His famous map "Amerique Septentrionale Divisee en ses Principales Parties" was derived mainly from Sanson?s and Jaillot?s maps of 1656 and 1676. At this time, California was no longer shown as an island, but as a peninsular, and the Great Lakes to the north are enclosed, which was another feature often shown incorrectly on earlier maps of America. This map has been published in 1792 in an Atlas which included 37 other maps of different countries.

        A Journal of Transactions and Events During a Residence of Nearly Sixteen Years on the Coast of Labrador; Containing Many Interesting Particulars, Both of the Country and its Inhabitants, not Hitherto Known

      1792 - First edition. Three volumes bound in one. Engraved portrait frontispiece of the author, and two engraved folding maps on three sheets. Thick quarto. Modern three-quarter red morocco and cloth, spine gilt. Boards lightly soiled. Light toning and foxing, small tear to inner margin of first map.6pp. list of subscribers. Very good. Newark, Printed and sold by Allin and Ridge George Cartwright first visited the Americas in the spring of 1766, when his brother John was first lieutenant of the Guernsey, flagship of Commodore Hugh Palliser. Cartwright sailed with the governor-designate to Newfoundland, where he spent a season cruising along the northeast coast. He returned in the spring of 1768 and took part in an expedition to the interior of Newfoundland to establish friendly relations with the Beothuks at Red Indian Lake. Cartwright's army career was foundering, so he determined to set up as a trader and entrepreneur in Labrador, and in 1770 he went on half pay.Raids by the Americans, competition between the English and French fishermen and between the different English merchant houses, along with the hostility between the natives and Europeans, all made for an unstable business atmosphere during Cartwright's time in Labrador and Newfoundland. None of this was helped by the political problems caused by the rival authorities of Quebec and Newfoundland. The scene of his operations from 1770 to 1786 was the stretch of coastline between Cape Charles, where he occupied Nicholas Darby's old site, and Hamilton Inlet. From the stations he established he engaged with his servants and sharemen in the fisheries for cod, salmon, and seals, and the trade in furs. The present work gives a fascinating insight into the business life of the region.But this work offers much else besides: a detailed record of the seasons with fine meteorological and natural history observations as well as extensive notes on the numerous hunting expeditions that Cartwright undertook. ?The journal is, above all, testimony to a persistent, curious, and resourceful mind. In his relations with the native peoples of Labrador, especially the Inuit, Cartwright displayed an honesty which led to mutual trust. In 1772 he took a family of five Inuit to England, where they created considerable interest, meeting with the King, members of the Royal Society including Joseph Banks, and James Boswell, who reported to a skeptical Samuel Johnson his ability to communicate with them by sign language. What has only recently been properly recognized, however, is the interest of Cartwright not only in the Inuit language and its study, but also in making himself a glossarist of 18th-century Newfoundland English; and he was a close student of and perhaps contributor to the work of such scientific contemporaries as Banks, Thomas Pennant, and Daniel Carl Solander. Of his sole essay as a poet, 'Labrador: a poetical epistle' (composed in 1784 [and bound at the back of the final volume of the present work]), Cartwright himself warned the reader: 'Tho I have often slept whole nights on mountains as high as that of famed Parnassus, yet, never having taken a nap on its sacred summit, it cannot be expected, that I should have awoke a Poet.' Yet less interesting verses have attracted the industrious attention of Canadian literary historians, and among writings from the New World a more singular 18th-century document than the journal itself is hard to find? (DCB).Robert Southey, who met Cartwright in 1791 and read this book in 1793, subsequently wrote that the author ?had strength and perseverance charactered in every muscle. The annals of his campaigns among the foxes and beavers interested me far more than ever did the exploits of Marlbro [sic] or Frederic; besides, I saw plain truth and the heart in Cartwright's book and in what history could I look for this??There is some bibliographical confusion over the collation of the maps, which are after surveys of the coasts of Newfoundland and Labrador by [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Clarissa : or the history of a young lady. Complete in 8 volumes

      London: B. Law and Son, T. Cadell, and more, 1792. First Edition. Bound in near contemporary full tree calf with gilt-blocked leather lable to the spine. Some wear to the spine and panel edges as with age. Remains well-preserved overall; bright, clean and sharp-cornered.. Physical description; 8 volumes. Summary; Pressured by her unscrupulous family to marry a wealthy man she detests, the young Clarissa Harlowe is tricked into fleeing with the witty and debonair Robert Lovelace. He, however, proves himself to be an untrustworthy rake whose vague promises of marriage are accompanied by unwelcome advances. Pressured by her unscrupulous family to marry a wealthy man she detests, the young Clarissa Harlowe is tricked into fleeing with the witty and debonair Robert Lovelace and places herself under his protection. Lovelace, however, proves himself to be an untrustworthy rake whose vague promises of marriage are accompanied by unwelcome and increasingly brutal sexual advances. And yet, Clarissa finds his charm alluring, her scrupulous sense of virtue tinged with unconfessed desire. Told through a complex series of interweaving letters, ""Clarissa"" is a richly ambiguous study of a fatally attracted couple and a work of astonishing power and immediacy. A huge success when it first appeared in 1747, and translated into French and German, it remains one of the greatest of all European novels. Subjects; England — Social life and customs — Fiction. General & literary fiction ; Novels, other prose & writers ; Literary studies: 16th to 18th centuries. Fiction / Classics. England - Fiction. Kidnapping - Fiction.

        Thomas Mifflin

      July 18, 1792. Partly Printed Manuscript Document Signed,<i><b>"Tho. Mifflin,"</b></i> one page, 9" x 8". [Philadelphia], Pennsylvania, July 18, 1792. To Daniel Brodhead, Esquire, Surveyor-General. Light stain and partial separations at folds, all in blank areas. Fine with a dark signature. <br><br>In part: <i>"Whereas, Charles Carroll (of Carrollton) applied for, and paid into the office of the Receiver General, of the Land-Office, the whole of the purchase money for Nine hundred acres of land within the last purchase made of the Indians, East of the Allegheny river and Conawango creek, at and after the rate of Five Pounds for every hundred acres of the same... The said application and warrant are numbered one thousand five hundred. There are therefore to authorise and require you to survey or cause to be surveyed for the said Charles Carroll the said quantity of acres... ."</i> <br><br>The General Assembly of Pennsylvania used the Purchase of 1784 or "Last Purchase" as an opportunity to implement new land laws. Land located west of the Allegheny River and Conawango Creek was set aside for Depreciation and Donation lands while land east of these rivers was opened to settlement as soon as preemption applications by squatters already living in the area between Lycoming Creek and Pine Creek were settled. Depreciation Land was sold to compensate veterans of the Revolutionary War who had received pay in depreciated currency and Donation Land was provided to officers and veterans of the Pennsylvania Line who served for the duration of the war. After the preemption claims were settled, the initial sale of land in the eastern portion of the Last Purchase took place. <br><br>At his death at 95 in 1832, land purchaser Charles Carroll (of Carrollton) was the last surviving signer of the Declaration of Independence. Succeeding Benjamin Franklin as President of Pennsylvania in 1788, Thomas Mifflin was the first Governor of Pennsylvania, serving from 1790-1799. In 1789, Brodhead was appointed Surveyor-General of Pennsylvania and served until resigning in 1800. One year earlier, he married Rebecca Mifflin, the widow of Thomas Mifflin's brother.
