        The United States of North America: with the British Territories and those of Spain, according to the Treaty, of 1784

      [London]: Wm. Faden, 1793. Copper-engraved map, with full original colour, in excellent condition apart from repairs to tears in bottom and lower left margins and to center fold. The extremely rare fifth issue of one of the most important early maps of the United States Faden's sequence of maps of the United States represents one of the most important cartographic depictions of the newly independent republic. The present map is the fifth issue of the fourteen total appellations (including the parent plan and thirteen subsequent issues), and is one of the extremely rare first five appellations of this series which almost never appear on the market. The Faden sequence comprises a critical and fascinating series of historical documents regarding the political development of the United States, especially since each issue captures a distinct stage in America's process of transformative change. The present map depicts the United States' boundaries as determined by the Treaty of 1784, when in actuality it is referring to the settlement agreed to at the signing of the Treaty of Paris on September 3rd, 1783, which ended the Revolutionary War. This treaty came into effect in April, 1784. The map is in part based on John Mitchell's A Map of the British and French Dominions in North America (1755) that was used by delegates during the treaty process. While the United States was granted a large territory from the Atlantic to the Mississippi River, and from the northern frontiers of Florida to the Canadian border, this map shows that the settled area of the nation was confined to the former Thirteen Colonies, and the two newly admitted states of Vermont (1791) and Kentucky (1792). Even then, the western boundaries of many of the states, past the Appalachians, are undefined. Although Washington, D.C. was in the process of being laid out, it was not yet built, and is absent from the map. One of the most interesting aspects of the map is its labeling of "Franklinia" or the "New State of Franklin." This refers to an attempt by settlers in the Great Smoky Mountains to secede from North Carolina and to form a new state. From 1785 to 1789, seven of the states of the Union endorsed the plan, but it failed to achieve the required two-thirds support to be admitted as a state at the Constitutional Convention. Various lands in Kentucky and the future Tennessee are shown to be reserved for war veterans from "Virginia" and "North Carolina." Another curious appearance is the name of "Indiana" in what is now West Virginia, but nowhere near the future state of that name. Various areas in the southern Midwest are shown to be owned by private land development companies including the "Wabash" and "Ohio" companies. One such enterprise was headed by "Colonel Simmes [sic]," John Cleves Symmes (1742-1814), an eccentric New Jersey magistrate who later wrote a book which theorized that the interior of the earth was both hollow and inhabitable, and could be entered through the poles. In the same treaty, Spain received possession of Florida from Britain, and the vast Louisiana Territory from France. In the north, although the treaty was supposed to have settled the boundary with Canada from the Great Plains to the Atlantic, a series of geographic misconceptions left the frontier in a nebulous state. Faden elected to present the extreme British conception of the border in northern Maine, and in the northwest, the border was supposed to run west to the source of the Mississippi, when in reality the source was located well to the south. The map also features "The Twenty Leagues Line" located off of the east coast that marked the exclusive maritime jurisdiction of the United States. The composition is completed by an especially finely engraved and coloured title cartouche which depicts scenes of commerce in the prosperous new nation.

        Vom Kriege.Berlin: Ferdinand Dümmler, 1832-1837. First edition.

      "Very scarce, fine, and complete set of Clausewitz´s writings on warfare, <i>Hinterlassene Werke über Krieg und Kriegführung</i>, with all 10 volumes, including the celebrated <i>Vom Kriege</i> (PMM 297), appearing in the first 3 volumes.<br/><br/> "These thousand pages of 'On Warfare' occupy a unique position among military writings of any age and nation. The book is less a manual of strategy and tactics, although it incorporates the lessons learned from the French revolutionary and Napoleonic wars, than a general inquiry into the interdependence of politics and warfare and the principles governing either or both. War, Clausewitz maintained, must always be regarded 'as a political instrument'; for war, his most famous aphorism runs, 'is nothing but politics continued by different means'. Consequently, he scorns the notion of 'the harmful influence of politics upon the conduct of war', since blame, or praise, must be attached to politics itself. If the course of politics is sound, political influence on the conduct of war can only be advantageous: 'The French revolutionary victories over twenty years resulted mainly from the faulty politics of the opposing governments'. <br/><br/> "His basic conception, that military decisions must always be subordinate to political considerations, is buttressed by the emphasis laid on morals and morale as the decisive factors in war. He therefore condemns all rigid blue-prints for campaigns and battles, defines strategy as 'a perpetual alternation and combination of attack and defence', and implies the then startling proposition that there are no bad soldiers but only bad officers. <br/><br/> "Clausewitz took an active part in all the continental campaigns between 1793 and 1815 as an officer in Prussian and, 1812-14, Russian services. He worked with Scharnhorst and Gneisenau for the reform of the Prussian army and from 1818 to 1830 was the head of the Berlin military academy, the forerunner of the Prussian general staff. His book <i>Vom Kriege</i> grew out of a series of 'aphorisms' jotted down in 1816-18 which formed the basis of his lectures at the academy. After his death from cholera during the Polish campaign, in which he served as chief of staff to Gneisenau, who succumbed to the same disease, the book was published by his widow and won immediate recognition as the most profound exposition of the philosophy of war - a place that has never been disputed." (</i>Printing and the Mind of Man</i>) ". 10 volumes, 8vo (202 x 120 mm). Two folding engraved maps and one folding table. (Some light spotting mainly to the edges, faint dampstain in the margin of vol. 3, short tears at map folds.) Contemporary green quarter calf, flat spines ruled in gilt and blind, lettered and numbered directly in gilt (spines lightly faded). Highly scarce in such fine condition

No eighteenth-century volumes located in Hollis (cites only three volumes, for 1823-1825, published 1822-1824). No volumes located in Orbis. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        LAVOISIER ET BORDA] REDOUTÉ (Pierre Joseph)

      14 1191 - Paris, 14 septembre 1793, l'an 2e de la République, , un billet de 180 x 130 mm, rédigé à l'encre brune, portant en-tête le cachet de minute notarial à l'emblème de la République et avec la devise "la loi le roi", , Intéressante pièce autographe du peintre Pierre-Joseph Redouté : elle témoigne de son activité de dessinateur scientifique et de ses relations avec deux des plus grands noms du monde des sciences et de la physique de la fin du XVIIIe siècle, Antoine Lavoisier et Jean-Charles Borda, au sujet de l'élaboration du système métrique. En 1792, Redouté, qui passera à la postérité pour ses peintures de fleurs, est employé par l'Académie des sciences. Il signe ici une reconnaissance de paiement perçu de la part du très célèbre Lavoisier : "pour deux dessins que j'ai fait à Mr Borda relatifs aux opérations pour mesurer la longueur du pendule à seconde". Nous avons donc là une minute exceptionnelle, en lien avec l'une des dernières préoccupations de Lavoisier à la veille de son emprisonnement, le 24 novembre 1793, et de son exécution, le 8 mai 1794 : appelé par le gouvernement pour fixer les règles du nouveau système métrique, Lavoisier s'était adjoint l'aide du physicien et navigateur Jean-Charles Borda (1733-1799), rendu indispensable pour l'exactitude de ses opérations de pesage. L'importance de cette tâche était de taille : il s'agissait d'uniformiser le système des poids et des mesures dans l'ensemble de la France. Dans ces conditions, Lavoisier fut exceptionnellement autorisé, par délibération de la Commission le 28 frimaire An II (18 décembre 1793), à sortir de sa prison chaque matin accompagné d'un gendarme, pour continuer ses expériences. C'est Borda lui-même qui signa la délibération : "la présence permanente du citoyen Lavoisier, en raison de son talent particulier pour tout ce qui exige de la précision, est irremplaçable. Il est urgent que ce citoyen puisse être rendu aux travaux importants qu'il a toujours suivis avec autant de zèle que d'activité ". Bel état, en dépit d'un renfort marginal au revers et une petite déchirure de 2 cm, sans atteinte au texte. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

With an intriguing gift inscription probably to John Rawdon, first Earl of Moira who died in 1793 from one John Ball: 'Honoratissimo Comiti de Mojral misit Johannes Ball A.M. Michael Maittaire (also Michael) (1668 ?- 7 September 1747) was a French-born classical scholar and bibliographer in England, and a tutor to Lord Philip Stanhope. He edited an edition of Quintus Curtius Rufus, later owned by Thomas Jefferson. His works included a grammar of English (1712). He was born in France of Huguenot parents, who around the time of the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes moved to England. He obtained a king's scholarship at Westminster School in 1682. Richard Busby, then head-master, made him concentrate on the study of Greek and Latin. On leaving school he went to The Hague, where he was received by the Vaillants, and then to Paris. On returning to England he gained the goodwill of Robert South, at the time a canon of Christ Church, Oxford; it is said that he compiled a list of the Greek words that were wrongly accented in the works of William Sherlock. South made him 'canoneer' student of Christ Church, and he took the degree of M.A. on 23 March 1696, being incorporated M.A. at Cambridge in 1708. In 1695 he was appointed second master of Westminster, but resigned in 1699 and kept a private school, one of the pupils at which was Stephen Martin Leake. Late in life he was Latin tutor to Stanhope, Lord Chesterfield's son. In 1728 he was living in a house in Orange Street, near Holborn, London. Maittaire died on 7 September 1747, aged 79. Over fifty years he had formed a large library, rich in early printed editions. It was sold by auction in London by Cock & Langford, the sale beginning on 21 November 1748 and lasting for forty-four evenings. Maittaire began to publish about 1706. His major works are his Annales Typographici and other writings on the history of printing, and of editions of the classics, especially the series of Latin classics printed in duodecimo by Jacob Tonson and Watts of London from 1713 to 1719. Pope had made Maittaire in the manuscript of the Dunciad an inhabitant of the "Kingdom of Dullness", but the lines were not printed, after a request made for their suppression by Edward Harley, 2nd Earl of Oxford, a patron of Maittaire. Extracts from Maittaire's letters to the Earl of Oxford are printed in John Nichols's Literary Anecdotes, and other letters by him are in George Ballard's collection in the Bodleian Library. In his earliest letters he signs his name 'Michell Mattaire'. (Wikipedia)

        [PRINTED COMMISSION, COMPLETED IN MANUSCRIPT, SIGNED BY LÉGÉR-FÉLICITÉ SONTHONAX, APPOINTING THE MULATTO GENERAL VILLATE AS COMMANDER OF CAP-FRANÇAIS]

      Cap-Français, 1793. Old fold lines. Light wear and soiling. Very good. During the early years of the French Revolution, Sonthonax was the civil commissioner of Saint-Domingue, which would soon become Haiti. A radical Jacobin, he presided over a chaotic period of conflicts between royalists and revolutionaries, and between whites, free people of color, and slaves in full revolt. He is most remembered for freeing the colony's slaves on Aug. 29, 1793 in an effort to gain the support of Toussaint L'Ouverture's forces against the Spanish. This document appoints the mulatto general, Villate, a rival of Toussaint's, as military commander of the city. It is signed by Sonthonax and countersigned by French military leader Etienne LaVeaux, who later assumed the governorship for himself, but he held power only briefly before being deposed by Toussaint. A large woodcut vignette proclaiming "La Republique Française, Une et Indivisible" heads the document. All early printed material from Saint Domingue is, in and of itself, rare by nature. A handsome and important piece, signed by two important figures in the early Haitian revolution, formalizing the rise to power of a third.

      Joseph-Geneviève, Le Comte de Puisaye, 1793. No binding. Very Good. PUISAYE (Joseph of). Signed letter "Joseph cte D.P." addressed to the General Jean-Victor MOREAU. S.l., [probably 1793, and not on 19 Sept. 1796 as indicated by an old note]. 1 p. 1/2 folios, letter cut into two with the folding and repaired on the back but almost separated. Age toned paper with chipping and on the edges and a couple of small tears with one affecting the letter in the date. Nice hand-written letter. Condition otherwise very good.The count Joseph of PUISAYE (1755-1827) was one of the burning defenders of the royalist cause. Outlaw, he took refuge in 1793 in the forests at Rennes, where it reorganized bands of chouans. Then he shared his activity between London and the continent, organized landing of Quiberon in June 1795 as well as many military operations. English translation of ALS by Puisaye..."No, Monsieur the General, at least as I like to believe it (as far as I think), the fame of your new post will not at all dazzle you you and will not diminish the feelings of attachment to your King that you were not afraid of demonstrating in the most difficult (trying) circumstances.

If this generosity feeling in your heart were to be extinguished for an instant, I would say to you, look back into the past, you will see there the bloody shadow of a respectable and unfortunate father fallen victim of the assassins who you now serve...

        CORPS DE VOLONTAIRES DE BOURBON [cover title]

      L'Isle Bourbon, 1793. Quarto. Printed self-wrappers, stitched as issued. Contemporary manuscript inscription on titlepage. Moderate dampstaining to lower half of text. Good plus. Extremely early and rare imprint from the colonial press at the French colony of Bourbon, present-day Réunion Island, dated August 1, 1793. The text outlines the articles for the organization of a voluntary militia for the island. The first printing press arrived on Réunion in June 1792 and began to print early in 1793, rendering this piece very early in the history of the island's printing. Once printing arrived on the island, it was spotty at best, with a dormant period from 1797 to 1803, and many of the official documents still came over from nearby Mauritius which was responsible for the administration of Réunion. Printing began on Mauritius in 1768, and it would seem that, for the most part, Mauritius's press was sufficient for the distribution of printed material on Réunion Island. No copies located in OCLC. Possibly unique.

        Alpine Gletscheransicht mit figürlicher Staffage. Aquarell über Tuschfederzeichnung. Im unteren Rand signiert &#132;Montgelas fecit 1793".

      1793. 1793 - Unter Passepartout gerahmt (abgebildet das volle Blatt). Blattgröße 34 x 28 cm, die eigentliche Darstellung nur geringfügig kleiner. Im weißen Rand sehr schwach finger- bzw. braunfleckig, obere linke Ecke mit undeutlicher Knickspur, kaum sichtbar. Insgesamt wohlerhalten. Eindrucksvolle Landschaftsdarstellung aus der Frühzeit alpiner Erschließungsgeschichte. Der Künstler war offensichtlich mit den zeitgenössischen Theorien des Erhabenen vertraut: Am Fuße des Gletscherabflußes &#150; fast auf Punktgröße reduziert und sich dem Betrachter erst auf den zweiten Blick offenbarend &#150; können drei Reisende ausgemacht werden, die in ein Gespräch vertieft auf Einzelheiten der Naturerscheinung zeigen. Ihre Körperhaltungen sind dabei unnatürlich forciert: Die Rücken weit durchgebogen und so die natürliche Beschränkung des optischen Sinnes körperlich erweiternd versuchen sie die vor ihnen liegende geologische Formation in ihrer Gesamtheit in den Blick zu nehmen. Der Künstler kommentiert dieses vergebliche Ansinnen auf ironische Weise, ist sich aber zugleich der Tragik des Ganzen bewußt, wenn er das eigentliche Naturereignis &#150; den Gletscher &#150; trotz seines eigenen, gegenüber den Reisenden deutlich erhöhten Standpunktes auch für den Betrachter des Aquarells verbirgt. Auch für diesen bleiben lediglich die umliegenden, schneebedeckten Hochgebirgszüge und die nackte, den Abfluß des Gletscher begrenzende Felswand sichtbar. Eine präzise Zuordnung welcher der wenigen, zumeist bayerischen Träger des Namens Montgelas (hier offenbar noch ohne das gräfliche Adelsprädikat) vorliegendes Aquarell anfertigte, blieb bislang leider erfolglos. Jedoch sprechen die Qualität der Ausführung und das Sujet für einen in der Freiluftmalerei geschulten Künstler. 1001 g

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM GOVERNOR SAMUEL HUNTINGTON TO HENRY KNOX REGARDING CONNECTICUT'S REACTION TO THE NEUTRALITY PROCLAMATION]

      Norwich, Ct, 1793. Folio. Old fold lines. Later paper strip attached to top of verso. Slight separation at some folds. Minor toning. Docketed on verso. Very good. In a half cloth clamshell case, gilt leather label. The retained copy of a letter written by Samuel Huntington, but entirely in his hand and signed by him. Huntington was a Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Governor of Connecticut, and here writes to Secretary of War Major General Henry Knox, indicating receipt of the terms of neutrality which the United States adopted towards Britain and France, and Connecticut's willingness to abide by those terms. Samuel Huntington was a Signer of the Declaration of Independence, served as President of the Continental Congress, and was the third governor of Connecticut, serving for ten years, until his death in 1793. Henry Knox served with distinction during the American Revolution; he was charged with Washington's famous crossing of the Delaware River, and the successful completion of that mission earned him the promotion to brigadier general. He was one of the founding members of the Society of the Cincinnati and was the nation's first Secretary of War. On April 22, 1793, George Washington issued a statement announcing that the United States would maintain a policy of strict neutrality in the conflict between France and Britain, resulting from the French Revolution. This was the first major international conflict facing the newly formed United States, and it involved her ally, France. One of the concerns of the American government was that America not be seen to be interfering in trade - privateering to the hindrance of one side or the other. The assurances on Governor Huntington's part most likely refer to the willingness of Connecticut ship captains to abide by the law of the land and maintain U.S. neutrality. He writes: "Sir, I am on this day favoured with your two letters of the 7th instant containing the rules & regulations which the President of the United States has thought proper to adopt for a uniform line of conduct throughout the several states with respect to the belligerent powers; and also the regulations agreed upon between the general government & the Minister of France. You may be assured, sir, that a strict observance will be paid to the directions and regulations contained in those letters. I have also the satisfaction to inform you, that the inhabitants of this state appear sincerely disposed to observe a just neutrallity [sic] conformably to the tenor of the proclamation which was issued by the President on that subject and have reason to believe that the general sense & sentiment of the citizens of this state will prevent all infractions of the laws of nations as relative to the powers at war." A nice document, referring to early Federal policy, penned by one of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM GOUVERNEUR MORRIS, AMERICAN FINANCIER AND FRAMER OF THE CONSTITUTION, TO HIS NEPHEW, JAMES MORRIS]

      Paris, 1793. Light fold lines. Near fine. A lengthy letter from Gouverneur Morris to his nephew, James Morris, providing details of a 1787 loan on which significant interest was still due from the debtor, Morris' older half-sister, Mary Morris Lawrence. Morris composed this letter while serving as U.S. Finance minister to France. Most of the text is an explanation of the interest due. He states that a recent payment was made through William Constable, Morris' former business partner and who, along with other Philadelphia associates, had loaned Morris the money needed to purchase the family estate, Morrisiana, in 1787. He then embarks on a description of the remaining debt and entreats his nephew to facilitate payment "speedily." Morris ends his letter with this statement: "I perfectly agree with you that a small sum on my farm with contentment is better than any thing in a situation like that in which I am now placed but the first of all enjoyments is that which results from doing our duty." Having previously served as an assistant to Robert Morris (no relation) in the Department of Finance under the Articles of Confederation, Morris was named to the Constitutional Convention in 1787. Credited with being that document's "stylist," he would write in a later letter to Thomas Pickering: "the Constitution was written by the hand which writes you this letter; having rejected all the equivocal and redundant terms, I thought it as clear as our language would permit." Morris would later serve in the U.S. Senate and participate in the re- mapping of the city of New York that was largely responsible for its present grid pattern. Good evidence of Morris' personal finances and a fine expression of his civic spirit.

Verso weitere Studie eines Jägers. -- Maße: -- 25,6 x 26,8 cm. -- Zustand: -- Insgesamt gut, im Rand minimal fleckig. Die Linien für die Übertragung durchgegriffelt. -- Beschreibung: -- Philipp Veits Name ist auf das Engste mit der nazarenischen Kunst verbunden. 1815 schloss sich der EnkelMoses Mendelssohns in Rom dem Lukasbund um Friedrich Overbeck an und beteiligte sich an den Freskender Casa Bartholdy und des Casino Massimo. Ab 1830 wird er dafür sogen, dass unter seiner Leitung dasStädelsche Kunstinstitut zu einer nazarenischen Hochburg in Deutschland wird. Seine religiösen Motiveprägen auch heute noch neben jenen von Friedrich Overbeck maßgeblich das Bild jener Künstlergruppe. Daherist unsere Zeichnung von besonderem Interesse, denn sie ist einer jener wenigen Belege dafür, dass Veitsich auch mit Themen außerhalb der religiösen Kunst und dem Porträt beschäftigte. Das auf Vorder- undRückseite bezeichnete Blatt zeigt einen Jäger mit seinen beiden Hunden bei der Jagd (die Rückseite zeigt denJäger mit angelegter Flinte). Da es sich bei der Figur um eine Aktstudie handelt, scheint Veit hier nur dieKomposition zu klären. Die Details wird er in einem nächsten Schritt ausführen. Die groben Umrisse hat erbereits mit einigen kleinen Variationen durchgegriffelt. Der Zeichnung wird also wohl ein Ölgemälde gefolgtsein, das heute leider nicht mehr bekannt ist. Da das Motiv in Veits Werk relativ singulär ist, liegt es nahe, in dem dargestellten Jäger den langjährigenFörderer des Künstlers, Franz von Bernus zu sehen, mit dem Veit selbst öfters zur Jagd gegangen ist. Bernusließ nicht nur seine Frau von Veit porträtieren, sondern bestellte auch weitere Werke bei dem Künstler undstiftete ein Gemälde für den Kaisersaal im Frankfurter Römer. --

        [SAMMELBAND OF SIX TITLES PRINTED IN THE EARLY FEDERAL PERIOD BY AND ABOUT THOMAS PAINE, INCLUDING HIS AGE OF REASON, RESPONSES TO THE WORK, AND THE AUTHOR'S TRIAL IN LONDON FOR A LIBEL CONTAINED IN Rights of Man]

      [ Various places, dates. Contemporary calf, gilt label. Contemporary ownership inscription on front free endpaper. Text block internally separated from spine, text block split between first five titles and sixth title. Other parts of text block separating and splitting. Some foredges worn, some leaves loose. Age-toning, occasional foxing and staining. See below for additional descriptions of individual titles. About good. A wonderful collection of works by and about the controversial American author, Thomas Paine, all printed in the United States between 1793 and 1796 and collected in a single contemporary volume. The two works by Paine are THE AGE OF REASON and THE AGE OF REASON. PART THE SECOND; the three contemporary responses to Paine's writing include works by James Tytler, Gilbert Wakefield, and Ebenezer Bradford; and the sixth title is an early American edition of THE TRIAL OF THOMAS PAINE, concerning the Paine's trial as the author of seditious literature which began in London in December 1792. The titles contained in this volume are as follows: 1) Paine, Thomas: THE AGE OF REASON: BEING AN INVESTIGATION OF TRUE AND OF FABULOUS THEOLOGY. Boston: Thomas Hall, 1794. 58pp. 12mo. Lacks titlepage, pp.3-4 torn, with contemporary thread repair; pp.25-26 torn in upper corner (loss of page numbers and a few words), final blank has clean tear. One of Paine's most famous works, here in one of eight American editions printed in 1794, following French and English language editions published in France the same year. Paine's treatise on his religious beliefs created much controversy, and many authors wished to contribute to its refutation. "Paine completed THE AGE OF REASON (1794), an attack on organized Christianity and the idea of the divine inspiration of the Bible. A second part appeared in 1795. Although Paine, a deist, insisted, 'I believe in one God, and no more; and I hope for happiness beyond this life,' THE AGE OF REASON made his name anathema among the clergy and devout Christians on both sides of the Atlantic" - ANB.

BEING AN INVESTIGATION OF TRUE AND OF FABULOUS THEOLOGY. [Philadelphia]: Printed [by Benjamin Franklin Bache] for the booksellers, 1796. vii,100pp. including half title. 12mo. The second part of THE AGE OF REASON, first printed in France through the efforts of Joel Barlow while Paine was in prison in Luxembourg. "Paine had 15,000 copies of Part Two printed in English in Paris and forwarded them in September, 1795, to Benjamin Franklin Bache of Philadelphia. But these copies did not arrive in America until April, 1796, long after the work had been reprinted here, taken from the [earlier] London edition pirated by Symonds [also in 1795]" - Gimbel.

        THE UNITED STATES OF NORTH AMERICA: WITH THE BRITISH TERRITORIES AND THOSE OF SPAIN, ACCORDING TO THE TREATY, OF 1784

      London, 1793. In excellent condition. Faden's sequence of maps of the United States represents one of the most important cartographic depictions of the newly independent republic. The present map is the fifth issue of the fourteen total appellations (including the parent plan and thirteen subsequent issues), and is one of the extremely rare first five appellations of this series which almost never appear on the market. The Faden sequence comprises a critical and fascinating series of historical documents regarding the political development of the United States, especially since each issue captures a distinct stage in America's process of transformative change. The present map depicts the United States' boundaries as having been settled by the Treaty of 1784, when in actuality it is referring to the settlement agreed to at the signing of the Treaty of Paris on September 3, 1783, which ended the Revolutionary War. This treaty did not actually come into force until April 1784. This map is based in part on John Mitchell's A MAP OF THE BRITISH AND FRENCH DOMINIONS IN NORTH AMERICA (1755) that was used by delegates during the treaty process. While the United States was granted a large territory from the Atlantic to the Mississippi River, and from the northern frontiers of Florida to the Canadian border, this map shows that the settled area of the nation was confined to the former Thirteen Colonies, and the two newly admitted states of Vermont (1791) and Kentucky (1792). Even then, the western boundaries of many of the states, past the Appalachians, are undefined. Although Washington, D.C. was in the process of being laid out, it was not yet built and is absent from the map. One of the most interesting aspects of the map is its labeling of "Franklinia" or the "New State of Franklin." This refers to an attempt by settlers in the Great Smoky Mountains to secede from North Carolina and to form a new state. From 1785 to 1789 seven of the states of the Union endorsed the plan, but it failed to achieve the required two-thirds support to be admitted as a state at the Constitutional Convention. Various lands in Kentucky and the future Tennessee are shown to be reserved for war veterans from "Virginia" and "North Carolina." Another curious appearance is the name of "Indiana" in what is now West Virginia, but nowhere near the future state of that name. Various areas in the southern Midwest are shown to be owned by private land development companies including the "Wabash" and "Ohio" companies. One such enterprise was headed by "Colonel Simmes" [sic], John Cleves Symmes (1742-1814), an eccentric New Jersey magistrate who later wrote a book which theorized that the interior of the earth was both hollow and inhabitable, and could be entered through the poles. In the same treaty Spain received possession of Florida from Britain, and the vast Louisiana Territory from France. In the north, although the treaty was supposed to have settled the boundary with Canada from the Great Plains to the Atlantic, a series of geographic misconceptions left the frontier in a nebulous state. Faden elected to present the extreme British conception of the border in northern Maine, and in the northwest the border was supposed to run west to the source of the Mississippi, when in reality the source was located well to the south. The map also features "The Twenty Leagues Line" located off of the east coast that marked the exclusive maritime jurisdiction of the United States. The composition is completed by an especially finely engraved and colored title cartouche which depicts scenes of commerce in the prosperous new nation.

        Cary's New and Correct English Atlas

      1793 - CARY, John. Cary's New and Correct English Atlas: Being a New Set of County Maps from Actual Surveys. London: John Cary, 1793. Large quarto, contemporary full brown tree calf reabcked, red morocco spine label, raised bands, original marbled endpapers. $3800.Second edition of Cary's "immensely popular" atlas of England and Wales, "the standard county atlas of the period," containing 46 lovely hand-colored maps, a very handsome copy in contemporary tree calf."John Cary was one of the most prolific, and by many considered to be the finest, of English map-makers. His work was of high standard, and in the many issues of his works he made constant additions and improvements, not only in his geographical data, but also in technical processes of printing" (Tooley, 57). "The quality of his engraving established new standards and a new style, with his effective, starkly beautiful, plain design being widely adoptedâ&#128;¦ Particularly noteworthy are the immensely popular New and Correct English Atlas (editions from 1787), which became the standard county atlas of the period," among other works (DNB). "Impressive in their workmanship, remarkable for their accuracy and their clear, clean print, Cary's maps are brilliantly engraved and rank as the finest maps of the 19th century. From a visual, as distinct from a decorative point of view, they have not been surpassed" (Tooley, 71). "He may be counted as one of the greatest influences in British cartography since Saxton" (Lister, 43). First published in 12 parts from 1787-89. Shirley I:324.

      New York, 1793. 12mo. Contemporary tree calf, spines gilt, leather label, neatly rebacked, preserving the original spines. Lacking volume labels. Corners bumped and lightly worn. Modern bookplate on rear pastedowns. Large folding map in first volume separated at folds. Light toning and minor foxing to text, a bit heavier in second volume. Good plus. First American edition of Imlay's A TOPOGRAPHICAL DESCRIPTION..., first published in London in 1792, and incorporating the second American edition of Filson's history of Kentucky, originally published in Wilmington in 1784. Filson's account, like that of Imlay, is not altogether accurate, but it is important as the first history of Kentucky, the first account of Daniel Boone, and the first work to contain a map of Kentucky. In bringing together his own and Filson's narratives, and eventually adding the work of Hutchins, Imlay provides the most complete information on the trans-Allegheny region available at the end of the 18th century.
