        Plan of the Attack on Forts Clinton & Montgomery upon the Hudsons River, which were stormed by his majesties forces under the command of Sir Henry Clinton KB, on Oct. 6, 1777

      1794.. This important map of the Hudson Highlands region during the Revolutionary War period centers on the Hudson River from Haverstraw to just south of West Point. It clearly shows the location of the Boom (the chain) just north of today's Bear Mt. Bridge; Anthony's Nose; both Fort Montgomery & Fort Clinton battlements; Stony Point; Verplanks Point. Three British ships are named off Peekskill Creek, the Mercury, Tartar & Preston. This dramatic battle plan showing the British attempt to clear the Hudson River of the American rebel forces was first printed by William Faden in 1784 after the drawings of John Hills. General Clinton came out of New York with the intention of improving the deteriorating British position at Saratoga. The well-executed plan called for amphibious landings and encircling the American forts- all shown with much details about ships and troop movements on a map with excellent topographical accuracy. This copy of the map is a second printing in which Hills name is deleted. Hills was one of the most talented of the mapmakers in the British army. He served in America from 1777 until the end of the war and then remained to work as a commercial surveyor and draftsman. Copper engraved map, b&w as issued. Faden was the important English cartographer who produced all the British maps of the American Revolution. Nebenzahl, Bibliography of Printed Battle Plans, #55 & ills. Stevens & Tree #21b. Faden allowed Charles Stedman to use this map in his book, "History of the Origin, Progress & Termination of the American War", published in London & Dublin in 1794. We note that this copy is approximately 3/4" larger than another copy we have had, although it seems to be identically engraved. This copy measures 20 3/8" x 26 1/4". Original folds, professionally rebacked, supporting the cracking on some folds; added margin to the left hand side, just into the black ruled border. A slightly lighter impression - perhaps this is from the pirated Dublin edition published in 1794. The historian Harley comments that Stedman's work was "the most useful military text & maps of that war."

        Recherches sur les Causes des Principaux faits Physiques, Et particulierement sur celles de la Combustion, de l'Elévation de l'eau dans l'état de vapeurs; de la Chaleur produite....2 vols.

      Paris, Maradan. Seconde Anné de la Republique, (1794). 2 cont. hcalf. Richly gilt backs, tome-and titlelabels in red leather. A little weakness at top of hinge, otherwise a very attractive copy. With the 2 half-title and 2 titles. (4),412;XVI,375 pp., 2 folded plates (1 in letterpress and 1 engraved). Light yellowing to leaves and a few scattered brownspots.. First edition. It is Lamarck's first larger work in Chemistry, and published before his well-known statement of evolution. His conceptions of chemical processes as propounded here, may well provide a basis for understanding his theory of evolution, which he presented in 1800."In this work Lamarck sets forth his views on the immutability of species and attacks the theory of spontaneous origin of life. The book is interesting in the history of Chemistry because Lamarck attacs Lavoisier's anti-phlogistic theory." (Duveen p. 334)
