        Manuscript Document Signed, being a contract between Webster and LINDLEY MURRAY regarding the terms of Webster's purchase from Murray of a plot of land in lower Manhattan, "now in tenure and occupation of Thomas Greenleaf, printer"

      [New York], 1794. Signed by Webster, and Murray's attorneys, John Murray , Sr. and Jr. Three scallop-topped pages on two adjoining sheets. 7-3/4 x 12-1/2 in. Some splitting along central vertical fold, otherwise in fine condition. In quarter blue morocco folder. Murray and Webster Do A Deal A New York City real-estate transaction with tremendous resonance. This remarkable agreement was made between the two pioneering, rival American grammarians, Lindley Murray and Noah Webster, whose grammars, spellers, and readers influenced many generations of American students. Indeed, Lindley Murray (1745-1826) was the only rival in popularity to Noah Webster, and he published his hugely successful ENGLISH GRAMMAR in 1795, while living in York, shortly after this document was signed. In it, he agrees to sell a plot of land to none other than Noah Webster himself ("all that certain lot of ground situate lying and being in the second Ward of the City of New York ... bounded in front on Water Street, on the East side by ground of Robert Bruce, and on the West side by ground of John Keese ...") By an equally curious coincidence, the then-current tenant of Murray's property was the New York printer, Thomas Greenleaf, whose "New York Journal and Patriotic Register" was the first Democratic organ in the country.

In part,???...the President of the United States be, and he is hereby authorized to require of the executives of the several States, to take effectual measures, as soon as may be, to organize, arm and equip, according to law, and hold in readiness to march at a moment???s warning, the following proportions, respectively, of eighty thousand effective militia, officers included...??? The number of militia is listed by state: Georgia 1333, South-Carolina 3550, North-Carolina 7331, Kentucky 1532, Virginia 11,377, Maryland 5418, Delaware 1256, Pennsylvania 10,768, New-Jersey 4318, New-York 7971, Vermont 2139, Connecticut 5881, Rhode Island 1697, Massachusetts 11,885, and New-Hampshire 3544. The act was approved by Pres. Washington on May 9, 1794. On May 19, 1794, Secretary of War Henry Knox transmitted to the Governors of the States copies of this act. Farmers in western Pennsylvania had been angered by a federal excise tax imposed on whiskey since 1791 and had been engaged in a series of attacks on tax collectors, especially in river towns. The attacks escalated and in July 1794, a federal marshal was attacked. On August 7, 1794, Pres. Washington issued a proclamation commanding ???all persons, being insurgents, as aforesaid, and all others whom it may concern, on or before the 1st day of September next to disperse and retire peaceably to their respective abodes.â? He also stated that â??it is in my judgment necessary under the circumstances of the case to take measures for calling forth the militia in order to suppress the combinations aforesaid, and to cause the laws to be duly executed; and I have accordingly determined so to do, feeling the deepest regret for the occasion.â? An army of almost 13,000 militia was mobilized and the insurrection was suppressed. Five years into his presidency, Washington had asserted the right of the national government to enforce order in one state with troops raised in other states. Evans 27852. NAIP w014568.

        Transactions of the Society Institued at London, for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures, and Commerce; with the Premiums offered in the Year 1794. Vol. XII

      London: T. Spilsbury and Son, 1794. Octavo, xviii, 400 pp., with three aquatint plates; fine in early nineteenth-century half calf, small perforation to lower end of the spine panel. Important contemporary printed notice of the success of Captain William Bligh's successful second expedition for bread-fruit in the Providence. Any printed material relating to the second breadfruit voyage is scarce, as Bligh had largely fallen out of favour with the London establishment by this time (Bligh's own planned narrative of the Providence voyage was never published).The Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures, and Commerce had for some years offered a gold medal to whoever first transported live breadfruit trees to the Caribbean colonies. Accordingly, news of Bligh's successful second expedition transporting breadfruit to St. Helena, the West Indies and Jamaica attracted the keen attention of the Society's patrons. This issue of the Transactions publishes notices from officials in all three destinations, listing the number of breadfruit trees (and their state of health) alongside other exotic species from Timor and further afield. Overall praise for Bligh is effusive from those receiving the plants; indeed, the Secretary at St. Helena wrote of the 'inexpressible degree of wonder and delight, to contemplate a floating garden...transported in luxuriance from one extremity of the world to the other'A grand list at the rear of this volume awards 'Captain William Bligh, R.N. for his having conveyed from the Islands of the South Seas, to the Islands of the West Indies, subject to the crown of Great Britain, six hundred and ninety plants of the Bread-fruit Tree in a growing state, the GOLD MEDAL.'.

Auf den Bildrand geschnitten, wie bei Graphiken von Zingg nahezu üblich, Löchlein im Bereich des Wasserfalls sorgfältigst restauriert. Literatur: S. Weisheit-Possel, Adrian Zingg (1734-1816). Landschaftsgraphik zwischen Aufklärung und Romantik. Diss. Berlin 2008, S.263, Abb. 101.. Nach erstem Unterricht bei seinem Vater, dem Stahlschneider B. Zingg, machte der Schweizer Künstler Adrian Zingg 1753-1757 eine Ausbildung zum Kupferstecher bei J.R. Holzhalb (1723-1806) in Zürich. Danach war er als Stecher in der Werkstatt J.L. Aberlis (1723-1786) in Bern tätig. Mit diesem und dem Berner Medailleur J.E. Mörikofer (1706-1761) reiste der Künstler 1759 zu dem Stecher J.Gg. Wille (1715-1808) nach Paris, zu dessen engerem Freundeskreis Zingg bald gehörte. Mit Ausnahme einer Reise in die Schweiz, 1764/1765, war er bis 1766 in Paris tätig. Durch Wille erhielt er mehrere Stichaufträge nach C. Vernet (1758-1836), C.G. Schütz (1718-1791), C.W.E. Dietrich (1712-1774) u.a. Bereits 1764 wurde er als Lehrer der Kupferstecherkunst an die neu gegründete Dresdner Akademie unter Chr.L. von Hagedorn (1712-1780) berufen. Antritt der Stelle war erst 1766, da er über Bern, Zürich, Augsburg und Nürnberg nach Dresden reiste. Weitere Künstlerfreunde waren C.W.E. Dietrich und A. Graff (1726-1813). 1769 wurde er Mitglied der Wiener, 1787 der Berliner Akademie. 1786 reiste er in die Schweiz. 1803 erhielt er eine Professur an der Dresdener Akademie. Schon 1766 wanderte Zingg durch das Elbegebirge. Besonders in den 1780/1790er Jahren unternahm er Studienwanderungen durch das Elbgebirge, Lausitzer- und Erzgebirge sowie die Meißner Gegend, das Leipziger Flachland, Böhmen, Brandenburg und Thüringen. Hier entstanden zahlreiche Landschaftszeichnungen. 1804 erschien "Adrian Zinggs Kupferstichwerk" (Leipzig, Verlag Tauchnitz). Darüber hinaus veröffentlichte er verschiedene Publikationen für den Zeichenunterricht.

A letter dated March 7, 1794 from 'an Associator' to Francis Plowden as a criticism of os History of the last Twenty Months. First edition. Francis Plowden (1749 - 1819) was an English Jesuit, barrister and writer. His first major work, Jura Anglorum, appeared in 1792, a conservative formulation of natural rights and contract theory. It was attacked in a pamphlet by his brother Robert Plowden, a priest under the title of A Roman Catholic Clergyman. The book was so highly thought of that the University of Oxford presented him with the honorary degree of D. C. L. , a unique distinction for a Catholic of those days. Previous owner's ink inscription to title page. Condition: Rebacked in paper wraps. Externally, sound but with some edgewear. Internally, firmly bound.

      London, [For the Author], , 1794. and of which the Navy serving with the Army divided their more than Ample Share, now Fourteen Years since. Octavo (230 × 140 mm). Stitched as issued, unopened and untrimmed, preserved in brown cloth drop-back box with Plexiglas window in the upper panel Light browning, else very good. First Edition. "Concerning capture of Charleston and sale of American property" (Howes). Clinton's reputation rests "almost entirely on his service in the American War of Independence [which was] almost always marred by his inability, by what historians have come to see as a disordered personality, to work well with other generals and admirals and to carry out his own plans" (ODNB). Clinton's falling out with Admiral Arbuthnot over the latter's refusal to co-ordinate with his plans was perhaps a key element in the British defeat in America which he here addresses by way of what might be considered a fringe issue. It formed part of Clinton's "destructive pamphlet war" by which he hoped to reclaim his reputation, but as the main subject of this attack, Arbuthnot, died around the time of its issue, it was withdrawn which goes some way to accounting for its scarcity.

        Vite de' più Eccellenti Pittori Scultori e Architetti

      Siena: Pazzini Carli, 1791-, 1794. Eleven volumes, octavo, printed upon pale blue tinted paper with 159 engraved plates, an excellent set in contemporary gilt decorated quarter calf with crimson morocco labels. Gorgeous eighteenth-century edition. Remarkably fine and fresh late-18th-century edition of Vasari's Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects, beautifully presented in gilt decorated contemporary calf bindings. This edition includes 159 engraved plates, providing portraits for each of the artists included in Vasari's monumental work, along with three special folding plates to accompany the life of Michelangelo.Giorgio Vasari (1511-1574) remains the pre-eminent biographer of the Italian Renaissance. A talented artist and architect in his own right, Vasari enjoyed the patronage of the powerful Florentine Medici family. Vasari turned his talents to recording the lives of great artists (including his contemporaries in Florence) and by so doing created a new genre. Vasari's biographies are both informative and intriguing - by combining fact and anecdote with a good measure of gossip he successfully offered his readers intimate insights within an engaging narrative. An experienced artist himself, Vasari introduced enlightened aesthetic and technical criticism throughout his biographies, a significant fact given that the wider public had limited access to the artworks themselves. Vasari's Lives played an important role in disseminating information and promoting Italian artists as celebrities across Europe, and has become the basis of much subsequent scholarship of the Italian Renaissance.

        Observations on the River Potomack, the Country adjacent, and the City of Washington.

      New York, Loudon and Brower, 1794. Format: 8°.. 30 S. (ohne die Tafel und Karte).. . Halbleinen um 1930 mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel, breiten Leinenecken und Buntpapierbezug. .. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION: Extremely rare original print of Tobias Lear's "Oberservations on the River Potomack", an important early publication about the founding of Washington DC and the settlements to become the United States of America. Lear was personal secretary to President George Washington. Some copies contain a map and a plate which are missing here. Some minor damages as first to leaves loose, some rebacked tear outs to white margins, title page ink stained, slightly browned and foxed, but alltogether a good copy of the extremely rare original print, which can be found only a few libraries worldwide (mostly only digital copies known and accessible). Erste Ausgabe. Gründungsgeschichte der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika*** Erste Ausgabe der Schilderung des River Potomack und der Stadt Washington, von dem Privatsekretär des ersten Präsidenten der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika, George Washington, der die letzten berühmten Worte am Totenbett überlieferte: "'Tis well": Tobias Lear (1762-1816) arbeitete in Washingtons "Potomac Company", die die schiffbarmachung des Potomac Flusses voranbrachte, aber auch in zahlreichen Landverkäufen tätig war. Im Auftrage Washingtons versuchte Lear, amerikanische Ländereien im District of Columbia an Europäer zu verkaufen, wofür er mehrer Reisen in Europa unternahm. Das kleine Büchlein ist also das erste gedruckte Zeugnis dieser Tätitkeit und eng verknüpft mit der amerikanischen Gründungsgeschichte, ein überaus seltenes Zeugnis, das nur in ganz wenigen Exemplaren bekannt ist. Einigen Exemplaren der Auflage wurde noch eine Tafel und eine Karte beigegeben, die hier beide fehlen. Titel und erstes Blatt mit Riss am Bug (lose, Titel alt angesetzt), Titel und wenige weitere Blätter mit hinterlegten Randausrissen, Titel teils stärker tintenfleckig, Blätter gebräunt und leicht angeschmutzt, insgesamt aber im Text vollständig und in guter Gesamterhaltung. Von bemerkenswerter Seltenheit. Kein Exemplar in der Berliner Staatsbibliothek, der KOBV verzeichnet lediglich eine "Elektronische Ressource" in der Universität Potsdam, auch sonst in Deutschland nur Online-Ausgaben. Auch in vielen amerikanische Bibliotheken fehlt ein Originaldruck des Rarissimums. Sabin 39533.
