The act also appropriates three hundred dollars for the placement of a beacon and buoys at the mouth of the St. Mary's River, the present border between Georgia and Florida at the East Coast. The second law allows district judges to adjourn sessions of the circuit courts if no members of the Supreme Court have appeared in the first four days.

        A History Of Three Of The Judges of King Charles I

      Hartford: Printed by Elisha Babcock, 1794. First Edition. Good in a full leather contemporary binding over boards with a red leather title block on the spine with gilt text and three gilt rules and vestiges of gilt decorations on the edges of the boards. A16mo measuring 6 5/8 by 4 inches with the leather worn through on the tips of the boards, and with both boards bowed so that the fore edge of the book is considerably wider than the spine. All of the fold-out plates are creased and folded improperly, the fore-edge of the title page is ragged with no loss to the print, the remnants of a leaf (possibly a plate) is missing having faced page 12. The full title reads: "A History Of The Three Judges of King Charles I. Major-General Whalley, Major-General Goffe, and Colonel Dixwell: Who, at the Restoration, 1660, Fled to America; And Were secreted and concealed, in Massachusetts and Connecticut, for near Thirty Years. With An Account of Mr. Theophilus Whale, of Narragansett, Supposed to have been also one of the Judges." 357 pages of text including an errata slip which is attached to the last page of text and that is followed by a one page ad noting the size of the book and the size of the type used is in conflict with the proposals which initially described the publication allowing the subscribers to either take the book or not "at their liberty". Illustrated with a frontispiece of the author, Plate I is a fold-out map of New Haven and its environs; Plate II illustrates two views of "Judges Cave" on top of West Rock in New Haven; Plate III shows street maps of both Guilford and Milford, Connecticut; Plate IV is a fold-out map showing both the Connecticut shoreline area; and, the Hadley area of Massachusetts; Plate V is a street map of a section of New Haven; Plate VI is a fold-out plate showing four head and foot stones; Plate VIII is a plan of Hadley, Massachusetts and details of Mr. Russels house; and Plate IX shows a map of the western towns of Naraganset Bay in Rhode Island. No copies of this title have been seen containing Plate VII. The prevailing opinion being that no such plate was ever produced for inclusion in the title. (Howes, S-999;

        THIRD CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES: AT THE FIRST SESSION... AN ACT LAYING DUTIES ON LICENSES FOR SELLING WINES AND FOREIGN DISTILLED SPIRITUOUS LIQUORS BY RETAIL [caption title]

      [Philadelphia: Printed by Childs and Swaine, 1794. [3]pp., printed on a folded folio sheet. Folio. Old fold lines. Top right corner of first leaf torn away, not affecting text. Final blank page with contemporary manuscript annotation. Some browning and foxing, light dampstaining. Good plus. An act passed by the Third Congress that required retailers of wines and imported spirits to purchase a five dollar license for the legal right to sell their products, or else face a fifty dollar fine. The law was another facet of Alexander Hamilton's strategy to raise federal revenue through the taxation of liquor sales and production. George Washington's presidential message of November 22, 1792 advocated a tax on distilled spirits, and Alexander Hamilton was a strong proponent of the whiskey excise tax, which was part of his overall plan for putting the federal government on a sound fiscal basis. This licensing law in conjunction with another passed the same day, which required a license for all stills and subjected those not registered to confiscation, touched off the Whiskey Rebellion in western Pennsylvania that had been fomenting there since the first Excise Law was passed in 1791. "Approved - June the fifth 1794," and signed in print by Speaker of the House Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg, Vice President John Adams, and President George Washington. This printing also includes a statement of deposition: "Deposited among the rolls in the Office of the Secretary of State. [blank] Secretary of State," and is signed by Edmund Randolph. This is a variant issue of the imprint recorded as Evans 27867 and ESTC W28074, which lacks the added text and signature, and is unrecorded there and in OCLC.

        Abraham and Martha Bininger - Folio ALS - 1794

      1794. No Binding. Good. 2pp folio ALS on large folded lettersheet, small amount of writing on second leaf for address; spiritually significant letter with Christian discussion and admonition. Appears to be from parents to son and daughter in law. Bininger at one time worked with George Whitefield. Dated January 5th, although month is a little difficult to read. At this point Abraham would have been about 74 years old; he lived until 1811. ALS seems to have been written to son John, although ink is faded and unclear on first few lines, with name appearing to have an extra letter. However, ancestry sources do confirm that Abraham and Martha had a son John, and the letter refers to two other sons, Isaac and Joseph, leaving John as one of the remaining songs (the others being Abraham and Christian) to receive the letter. There was also a daughter named Martha. Descendant Mary C. Bininger notes at lower portion of verso of letter that this is her fourth ancestor

Two volumes. viii, [9]-508; viii, 602 pp. Lacking half-titles. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5"). Recent quarter cloth over marbled boards, printed paper title labels to spines, speckled edges. Moderate toning, light foxing in a few places, underlining to a few passages in Volume II, early owner signature to title page of Volume I. Ex-library. Small perforated stamp to title page of Volume II. A nice copy in a handsome binding. * Only edition. A shoemaker by trade, Hardy was the founder and First Secretary of the London Corresponding Society. This was a popular association of workingmen committing to the cause of universal male suffrage. Unnerved by the excesses of the French Revolution, and eager to set an example, Hardy was indicted for high treason in 1794. The public favored Hardy's cause and he was seen as an unjustly persecuted apostle of English liberty. As the trial proved, the Crown's case, prosecuted by Lord Eldon, had little merit and Hardy was acquitted to great acclaim. This account contains a complete transcript of the trial, along with a narrative account and the texts of letters and documents introduced as evidence. English Short-Title Catalogue T73925.

        Indonesia, West Coast of Sumatra - Laurie and Whittle, 1794.

      INDONESIA NAUTICAL CHART"A Chart of the West Coast of Sumatra from Old Bencoolen to Buffaloe Point containing the Road of Bencoolen and Poolo Bay. Plan of Rat Island. Plan of Poolo Bay.'Copper engraving from "The East-India Pilot, or Oriental Navigator' published in London by Robert Laurie and James Whittle in 1794. Coloured by a later hand. Size: approx. 63,5 x 53,3 cm.Nautical chart of the west coast of Sumatra in the vicinity of Bencoolen or Fort Marlborough. The map is divided into three sections, the left hand side being a general nautical chart of the approaches to Bencoolen and Fort Marlborough, the right hand plans are details of Rat Island and Poolo Bay. Bencoolen (Bengkulu) was established as a pepper-trading center by the British East India Company in 1685. By the time this map was drawn Bencoolen has been renamed "Old Bencoolen', being superseded in 1714 by Fort Marlborough just to the south. The map offers considerable detail on the approaches to Bencoolen for which Rat Island (top right submap) is an important marker, as well as a staging post were vessels could dry anchor and dry nets. Poolo Bay (Pulau Bay) (bottom right submap), some seven miles south of Fort Marlborough, was at the time an excellent harbor and anchorage. There the map identifies warehouses as well as lime ovens and a fresh water source.Though most charts in the East-India Pilot were derived from earlier maps prepared for Jean-Baptiste d"Apres de Mannevillette"s 1745 Neptune Oriental, this particular chart is a new production unique to Laurie and Whittle. The map offers rich detail including countless depth soundings, notes on the sea floor, commentary on reefs, rhumb lines, shoals, place names and a wealth of other practical information for the mariner. Cartographically it was derived from surveys by Captain Joseph Huddart, John Price, and a Mr McDonald.Price: € 975 (excl. VAT/BTW).

      London: J. Debrett. 1794. Two vols. in one, 8vo., one plate*, 45 + (3) and (4) + 72 + (122) + 28pp., minute hole in one leaf with loss or partial loss of one or two letters on recto and verso, contemporary calf-backed marbled boards with original morocco label lettered in gilt. A fine copy, with the early 20th century booklabel on front pastedown of Robert A.N. Petrie.> A complete set of the reports of both committees. See Goldsmiths 16119 and 16122 (although this latter is a 4th ed.). Very scarce. These were the reports of the government inquiry into the radical, and potentially revolutionary, political societies that had mushroomed in the early 1790s. They included the Society for Constitutional Information, the Society of the Friends of the People, and, most of all, the largely working class London Corresponding Society (Thomas Hardy, Maurice Margarot, &c.) which campaigned for annual parliaments and universal manhood suffrage. All these were seen by the establishment as nurturing subversive elements which were not surprisingly of great concern to the government, which employed an intricate network of spies to infiltrate the societies to gather intelligence. The two Parliamentary committees comprised the most senior members of government including Pitt himself, together with Dundas and Edmund Burke. The Reports themselves include transcriptions of numerous documents (letters, reports, &c.) throwing light on the operations of these societies largely over the period 1792 to May 1794. Of course, these reports and the committee hearings, all post-dated the principal treason trials of such men as Maurice Margarot, William Skirving, Thomas Muir, Thomas Fyshe Palmer and others which had already occurred some months earlier. Both the Commons and the House of Lords' Committees had struggled, as had the trial judges, with the boundaries between legitimate free speech and criminal sedition and treason. It was, as these reports show, not an easy distinction. The reports therefore have become an essential source for the study of what many feared might have been a 'British Revolution'. * The plate illustrates four weapons (pikes or bladed staffs) which had been discovered in various quantities in the possession of some of the men being investigated.

        Society of United Irishmen of Dublin. Established November IX. MDCCXCI./ "Let the Nation Stand". [Being the printed Founding Manifesto of this revolutionary organization these are the Declaration, resolutions, addresses, circulars, letters and transactions of the Society].

      [Society of United Irishmen], Dublin 1794 - First Edition. Dublin, [Society of United Irishmen], 1794. Duodecimo. (8), 207 pages (pages 205/206 have been replaced by a mimeographed page and bound with the volume - ask for detailed photographs). Hardcover / Full leather of the early 20th century. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Extremely scarce publication ! No copy available on the worldwide market at the time of cataloging. The Society of United Irishmen was founded as a liberal political organisation in 18th century Ireland that initially sought Parliamentary reform. However, it evolved into a revolutionary republican organisation, inspired by the American Revolution and allied with Revolutionary France. It launched the Irish Rebellion of 1798 with the objective of ending British monarchical rule over Ireland and founding a sovereign, independent Irish republic. During the 1780s, a few liberal members of the ruling Protestant Ascendancy, organised as the Irish Patriot Party led by Henry Grattan, campaigned for: reform of the Irish parliament; a lessening of British interference in Ireland's affairs; and expanding the rights and voting franchise for Catholics and Presbyterians. Backing them up was the Irish Volunteers movement, which had widespread Protestant support. Whilst they had limited success such as the establishment of Grattan's Parliament and the repeal of some of the discriminatory Penal Laws, they fell short of many of their aims. When the parliamentary reform movement collapsed in 1784, it left radicals without a political cause. By the mid-1780s, radicalism in Ireland was taking a new, bolder form, typified by the letters penned by William Drennan which were published in the Belfast Newsletter and in pamphlets. In them he hit out at leaders of the Volunteers such as Grattan and Charlemont for their conservatism and restraint, and at the political establishment for preventing the reform of the Irish parliament. Most notably was his appeal for all Anglicans, Dissenters, and Roman Catholics to unite together as one indifferent association, however he accepted that this would only appeal to the minority within each denomination. Inspiring and increasing the radicalisation of Irish reformists was the French Revolution which had started in 1789, and had so far remained largely bloodless, with the French king forced to concede effective power to a National Assembly. Also in 1789 the Whig party was founded in Ireland and soon it became an alliance of radicals, reform-minded parliamentarians, and dissident representatives of the governing class. By 1791 this alliance however was already fracturing, and several rival Whig clubs were set up by people such as Napper Tandy in Dublin and Belfast. Another grouping was a "shadowy" organisation of eleven people headed by Samuel Neilson, that sought to move the recently revived Volunteer movement in as far a radical direction as possible. The enthusiasm for the French Revolution saw great Irish interest in Thomas Paine's The Rights of Man released in May 1791, which defended it and saw around 20,000 cheap copies printed for digest in Ireland. A couple of months later the Belfast Volunteer company gathered to celebrate the second anniversary of the fall of the Bastille. It was intended that a new radical society was to be announced during the celebrations which William Drennan, who was to give a declaration, asked to add in resolutions. Drennan refused due to the short notice of the request and suggested that a Theobald Wolfe Tone be asked. Tone's reformist radicalism had advanced beyond that of the Whigs, and he proposed three resolutions for the new society, which he named the Society of United Irishmen. The first resolution was for the denouncing of the continuing interference of the British establishment in Irish affairs. The second was for the full reform of the Irish parliament and its representation. The last resolution called for a union of religious faiths in Ireland to "abolish the diff [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Lettre autographe, manuscrite au Prince de Condé, Commandant en chef de l'armée émigrée dite "Armée de Condé" au quartier général d'Heidelberg, le 24 novembre 1794. Le Manuscrit, porte comme titre "Instruction à suivre en cas que le Rhin vint à geler"

      1794 - 8 pages manuscrites in-folio d'une fine écriture très lisibles. Durant les guerres de la Révolution, les troupes françaises franchissent plusieurs fois le fleuve : une première fois en 1794, près de Düsseldorf, puis à nouveau en septembre 1795 - - - L'armée de Condé est l'une des armées des émigrés créées par Louis V Joseph de Bourbon-Condé, cousin du Roi, et de ses frères pour lutter contre la révolution française. Il évite son arrestation en émigrant après la prise de la Bastille, aux Pays-Bas puis à Turin. Jusqu'à la guerre, il s'est établi à Worms, sur les bords du Rhin tandis que les frères du Roi établissent leur quartier général à Coblence. Il crée dans cette petite ville cette armée qui va porter son nom. 27 officiers du régiment de Beauvoisis sont présentés au prince le 19 avril 1791. Cette armée participe aux guerres de la Révolution française de 1792 à 1801 aux côtés des armées des Habsbourg-Lorraine, en participant aux combats pendant l'invasion - ou libération pour les royalistes - non réussie de la France par les alliés - ou les ennemis pour les républicains. Comme l'armée des princes, il compte dans ses rangs quelques aristocrates tels que son propre fils, Louis VI Henri de Bourbon-Condé, son petit-fils, duc d'Enghien, le duc de Richelieu, le duc de Blacas, duc de Choiseul, le comte de Langeron, le comte de Damas, le comte de Montlosier, le Comte de Mauny, vicomte de Bonald et beaucoup d'hobereaux comme Chateaubriand. Cette troupe compte presque plus d'officiers que de soldats. Des officiers élégants, deviennent tout à coup soldats par dévouement pour la monarchie, mais c'est un corps où personne ne veut nettoyer son fusil, ni faire l'exercice, mais où chacun est prêt à se faire tuer et est d'une bravoure à toute épreuve constate le chevalier d'Hespel. Le 19 août 1793, l'armée de Condé s'empare de Jockgrim, Wörth et Pfotz, le long du Rhin. La contre attaque des républicains de nuit est repoussée, et permet à l'armée de Condé de s'emparer de Hagenbach et Büchelberg : les pertes républicaines sont lourdes : 3 000 hommes et 18 canons. L'armée de Condé est alors mise à l'ordre de l'armée autrichienne. Le 1er décembre 1793, les dernières attaques de l'armée de la Moselle avaient nécessité des mouvements dans celle du Rhin. Le 11 frimaire, le général Pichegru voulant tâter toute la ligne ennemie, fait d'abord attaquer, sans succès, vers le centre le village de Bertsheim, en avant d'Haguenau, occupé par les émigrés. Le lendemain, l'artillerie ayant recommencé l'action, l'infanterie, d'abord entièrement en tirailleurs, s'étant réunie en colonne au signal convenu, force le village où se trouvait le régiment des émigrés de Mirabeau et celui de Hohenlohe, autrichien, lorsque le prince de Condé, qui était posté en arrière avec son infanterie, entre dans le village sur quatre colonnes, et le reprend l'épée à la main ; en même temps sa cavalerie qui l'avait dépassé sur la droite, ayant rencontré la cavalerie républicaine, la bat, s'empare de sept canons, et met hors de combat environ 200 hommes [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Pappband d.Zt. mit Rückenschild und –linienvergoldung. Etwas berieben, Bezug a.d. Rücken fachgerecht Restauriert. Erste Ausgabe (nicht bei Goedeke; Hirschberg, Taschengoedeke 2, S.341; W./.G² 70). – Nahezu fleckfrei. Front. im Außenrand mit kurzen Einrissen. A.d. Vorsatz ein Besitzeintrag von 1978 unkenntlich gemacht. Gutes Exemplar der durchaus seltenen ersten Ausgabe, häufiger ist die zweite, unveränderte Auflage von 1798; eine dritte Auflage erschien noch 1816, eine Übersetzung ins Holländische 1820. Das Mythologische Wörterbuch konnte MORITZ (Hameln 1756 – 1793 Berlin) nicht mehr selbst vollenden; von ihm stammt nur der ausformulierte Text bis S.67, den Rest bearbeitete V.H. SCHMIDT (1756 Berlin 1838), der hier als Prorektor der Köllnischen Stadtschule firmiert, später Direktor des Köllnischen Gymnasiums wurde. Er ist heute noch bekannt als Autor einiger bedeutender Werke zur berlin- und brandenburgischen Geschichte. MORITZ beschäftigte sich seit der Rückkehr aus Italien intensiv mit der Mythologie der Griechen und Römer, was in den frühen ´90er Jahren Niederschlag in mehreren Veröffentlichungen fand (neben der vorliegenden auch Antousa oder Roms Alterthümer, 1791; Götterlehre, 1791; Mythologischer Almanach, 1792). Er stand damit im Zentrum der Bemühungen der Klassik, den Tendenzen der Zeit, revolutionäre Unruhe auf der einen, starrer Rationalismus der Aufklärung auf der anderen Seite, die antiken Ideale der Kunst und Humanität entgegenzusetzen. Das Kupfer, das als eines des treuesten Portraits MORITZ‘ gilt, stach der unbekannt gebliebene J.D.H. nach dem Gemälde, das KARL FRANZ JAKOB HEINRICH SCHUMANN 1791 in Berlin im Auftrag GLEIMs für dessen Gemäldesammlung angefertigt hatte.

        Ferishta's History of Dekkan,

      Shrewsbury: Printed by J. & W. Eddowes for John Stockdale, London, , 1794. from the first Muhammedan Conquests: with a continuation from other native writers, of the events in that part of India, to the reduction of its last monarchs by the emperor Aulumgeer Aurungzebe: also, the reigns of his suvccessors in the empire of Hindostan to the present day: and the History of Bengal, from the accession of Aliverdee Khan to the year 1780. 2 volumes, quarto (278 x 217 mm). Late 19th century dark red half morocco for the bookseller William Brown (Edinburgh), gilt lettered and banded spines, marbled sides, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, marbled endpapers. Bindings a little rubbed at the extremities, a couple of corners lightly bumped, scattered foxing and some paper toning but a good tall set. First edition of this translation of one of the most important histories of India, by the late 16th-century Persian historian Muhammad Qasim Hindu Shah, known as Ferishta. The British orientalist Jonathan Scott (1753-1829) had it published at his own expense in his native Shrewsbury. Scott served as an officer with the East India Company and saw action in the First Mahratta War when acting as Persian translator to Major William Popham. "Governor-General Warren Hastings appointed Scott his private Persian translator in 1783, responsible for communications with the native powers judged too diplomatically sensitive to be trusted to an Indian secretary. Hastings also valued Scott's historical investigations which took their cue from Robert Orme's thesis that the reign of Aurangzeb and of his successors was the key epoch of Mughal Indian history. Scott consulted the best native authorities, and amassed materials collected by his brother Captain Richard Scott, and by Lieutenant-Colonel Henri Polier, concluding that a fuller understanding of recent history might be gained from an insight into the history of the Deccan" (ODNB). From the library of the Lords Elphinstone, with their Carberry Tower Library label in both volumes; the most distinguished scion of that house was Mountstuart Elphinstone (1779-1859), administrator in India.

        A New General Map of the East Indies Exhibiting in the Peninsula on the Side of the Ganges or Hindoostan

      Laurie and Whittle, London 1794 - This beautifully hand colored map of Southeast Asia depicts from Persia (Afghanistan) east as far as Macao to include the Indian subcontinent, Thailand, Vietnam, Burma (Myanmar), Malaysia, Sumatra and part of Borneo and China. It notes the various kingdoms and territories of the time including Pegu (Burma) Siam (Thailand), Tonkin and Chochin (Vietnam) and Camboja (Cambodia). Further South, the Straits of Singapore are labeled. Singapore Island however, is not labeled but is recognizable. The partitions of the Mogul Empire, the dominions of the East India Company as well as French and Dutch possessions are color-coded. The map labels numerous towns, cities and roads with exquisitely detailed topography including coastlines, rivers and mountains. Interesting annotations at a few places read "Cancar or Ponthiamas a Little Kingdom founded about 50 years ago by Kiang-tse a Chinese Mercht" near the western coast of Cambodia, and "Mountains inhabited by the Wild Nation called Ke-Moy" in Vietnam.This map, by Thomas Jefferys was made from actual surveys made by Major James Rennel and was published by Laurie and Whittle in Thomas Kitchin's 1794 "General Atlas". The map is in good condition with reinforcements along the original centerfold. Some edge wear and verso repair. Original plate mark is visible. Small portion of margin near title is repaired with portion filled in. Overall toning and minor foxing.Thomas Kitchin (1719-1784) was an English engraver and map-maker. His maps and atlases of England earned him the position of hydrographer to the King. Robert Laurie (c. 1755 - 1836) and James Whittle (1757-1818) were London-based map and atlas publishers active in the late 18th and early 19th century. Their firm combined Laurie's engraving skills with Whittle's social contacts and print sales experience. Together, they published numerous maps and atlases, often enlisting prominent cartographers such as Kitchin, Faden, Jefferys and others to update and modify their plates.Thomas Kitchin (1719-1784) was an English engraver and map-maker.
