        The Holy Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments: Translated out of the original tongues; and with the former translations diligently compared and revised, by His Majesty's special command.

      [with] O.T. Psalms. English.1795. Paraphrases. The Psalms of David in metre. Translated, and diligently compared with the original text, and former translations. More plain, smooth, and agreeable to the text, than any heretofore. Allowed by the authority of the General Assembly of the Kirk of Scotland, and appointed to be sung in congregations and families. Edinburgh: Mark & Charles Kerr, 1795. 4to. [24] ff. The Kerrs, printers to His Majesty, published a number of Bibles in the late 18th century, with minor to significant variations among the editions -- including several different formats in 1793. In the present (uncommon) large quarto edition, the Apocrypha are not present although listed in table of contents, but the signatures of the Old and New Testaments are continuous and uninterrupted; the New Testament has a separate title-page. This edition ends with leaf 6M4 and does not match Darlow and Moule 957 (Edinburgh: M. & C. Kerr, 1793), described as a folio with text ending on 9R2, although that entry's statement that "The insertion of the Apocrypha interrupts the signatures" would seem to explain the absence of the non-integral Apocrypha; the accompanying Scotch Metrical Psalms of 1795 are also present in Darlow and Moule's listing. Herbert finds additional Kerr printings of 1793, but none that match the format and collation of this copy. Scarce: ESTC, OCLC, and NUC Pre-1956 find only two U.S. holdings. Provenance: The beautifully written ownership note, "Rebecca Jane Emack," at top of first text leaf.

      Engelmann 547. Second, enlarged and rearranged edition of his Sur la découverte du rapport constant of 1795. The correlation between atmospherical changes and the behaviour of spiders made the author predict a period of frost when the French besieged Utrecht in 1795. The frost came, and the author was released from his imprisonment in Utrecht. This second edition was systematically arranged and enlarged with new observations. Very scarce. Some spotting, otherwise in good condition.

        Scherzi poetici e pittorici...

      Parma, Co’tipi Bodoniani, 1795. 4to, 54 leaves, some edges untrimmed. With an engraved title-page and 40 plates printed in sepia, with black ornamental borders, by Jose Teixeira Barreta. Early stiff vellum, backstrip gilt with red and black labels, gilt edges, a fine copy in a modern cloth box. First Bodoni edition, and one of a few Bodoni imprints issued with illustrations (the others mostly being fête books). This copy has large margins and is printed on fine paper with the plates in delicate shades of sepia -- it may be one of 12 copies that Brooks and de Lama refer to as ‘colored’. De Lama notes copies with plates printed in black, plates “medesimi coloriti all’etrusca” and (this copy) “altri coi rami stampati in rosso pallido entro un arabesco nero”. Updike, Printing Types, vol. 2, page 165 etc. notes that Bodoni’s earlier books (such as this) are to be preferred both for their fine design and presswork, for which he was justly renowned. This work, a collection of poems, is printed in roman and italic; each poem is illustrated with an allegorical engraving, contained in an elaborate border (all different) printed in black -- in a simple neo-Classical style. Barreta (Benezit gives Bareto) was a Portuguese Benedictine monk whose artistic skills were renowned -- in addition to these engravings he executed a number of full-scale paintings at his monastery which still survive. A second edition (without the plates) appeared in 1804. Brooks 600. De Lama II, 107/8. Weiss Catalog 11 (1926) #249 (but of the four copies, none with this configuration of illustrations in russet and borders in black).

        Cries of London, Plate 10, Old Chairs to Mend

      London: Published by Colnaghi & Co. No. 132 Pall Mall, 1795. Colour printed stipple engraving. Printed on wove paper. In good condition with the exception of being trimmed just within the platemark on all sides. Margins have some loss to surface of paper. Traces of glue residue on verso of sheet. Small sections of lost paper on upper and bottom margin has been expertly infilled. Image size: 14 x 11 inches. A wonderful image of a chair mender from Wheatley's famous "Cries of London" series. The "Cries of London" was a recurring theme in English printmaking for over three centuries. These colourful prints form a visual record of London's "lower orders", the peddlars, charlatans, street hawkers, milkmaids, and grocers who made their living on the city streets. They give the viewer a glimpse of a long forgotten London where tradesmen would advertise their wares with a musical shout or a melodic rhyme. Different versions of the "Cries" vary in tone from idealistic visions of contented street vendors to satirical caricatures of humorous urban figures. One of the most famous series of "London Cries" is the group of pretty pictures executed by Francis Wheatley. Wheatley's series was immensely popular and enjoyed a long period of success in the English print shops. Between 1792 and 1795 Wheatley exhibited 14 paintings of the "Cries" at the Royal Academy. The pictures attracted a great deal of attention at the exhibition and Colnaghi & Co. quickly agreed to publish a series of engravings after Wheatley's famous series. Only thirteen of the fourteen paintings were engraved and they were offered for sale individually or in a portfolio collection. The prints, which were executed in stipple, were engraved by some the most noted engravers in England; artists such as Luigi Schiavonetti, Giovanni Vendramini and Thomas Gaugain all contributed their work to the series. Complete collections of the "Cries" remained immensely popular, and by 1910 they were fetching more than James Audubon's folio "Birds of America" at auction. This lovely print is plate ten in the series and depicts an industrious craftsman mending chairs outside a simple house; St. Paul's is pictured in the background. Roberts F. Wheatley, R.A. His Life and Works London , 1910, pp.28-32.

      London 1795 - Title page of the series 'Hollandia Regenerata', twenty caricatures by the Swiss artist David Hess, as criticism to the newly constituted commitees after the escape of William V of Orange from the country due to the invasion of the French.

Prints in the series: 1) Frontispiece titled on the flag:'HOLLANDIA REGENERATA' with a soldier playing a trumpet and a side drum, another soldier and a woman dancing and another character playing the bagpipe of the 'VADERLANDS LIEFDE' above in the sky:'Dansons la Carmagnole!

        Cries of London, Plate 8, Round & Sound Five Pence a Pound Duke Cherries

      London: Published by Colnaghi & Co. No. 132 Pall Mall, 1795. Colour printed stipple engraving. Printed on wove paper. In good condition with the exception of being trimmed just outside the platemark on upper and side margins. A paper loss on the bottom margin has been expertly infilled. Edges of upper right and left corners are missing. Margins are scuffed with slight traces of surface soiling. Image size: 14 x 11 inches. A wonderful image of a cherry seller from Wheatley's famous "Cries of London" series. The "Cries of London" was a recurring theme in English printmaking for over three centuries. These colourful prints form a visual record of London's "lower orders", the peddlers, charlatans, street hawkers, milkmaids, and grocers who made their living on the city streets. They give the viewer a glimpse of a long forgotten London where tradesmen would advertise their wares with a musical shout or a melodic rhyme. Different versions of the "Cries" vary in tone from idealistic visions of contented street vendors to satirical caricatures of humorous urban figures. One of the most famous series of "London Cries" is the group of pretty pictures executed by Francis Wheatley. Wheatley's series was immensely popular and enjoyed a long period of success in the English print shops. Between 1792 and 1795 Wheatley exhibited 14 paintings of the "Cries" at the Royal Academy. The pictures attracted a great deal of attention at the exhibition and Colnaghi & Co. quickly agreed to publish a series of engravings after Wheatley's famous series. Only thirteen of the fourteen paintings were engraved and they were offered for sale individually or in a portfolio collection. The prints, which were executed in stipple, were engraved by some the most noted engravers in England; artists such as Luigi Schiavonetti, Giovanni Vendramini and Thomas Gaugain all contributed their work to the series. Complete collections of the "Cries" remained immensely popular, and by 1910 they were fetching more than James Audubon's folio "Birds of America" at auction. This lovely print is plate eight in the series and depicts a cherry seller weighing out a portion of cherries for two eager children. Roberts F. Wheatley, R.A. His Life and Works London, 1910, pp.28-32.

        Haggadah Shel Pesah

      1795 - (HAGGADAH). Haggadah Shel Pesah. Offenbach: Zevi-Hirsch Segal Spitz, [1795]. Small octavo, period-style full marbled sheep gilt, brown morocco spine label, marbled endpapers; ff. 40. $2800.Lovely illustrated Offenbach Haggadah, with five in-text woodcuts portraying contemporary Ashkenazi (German) Jews, beautifully bound.“The illustration of the Seder, which is printed in the middle of the Haggadah, is of interest. The members of the family are dressed in 18th-century fashion, and the entire scene has a contemporary flavor” (Yerushalmi 84). This edition uses Joel Brill’s important 1785 German translation in Hebrew characters, part of Moses Mendelssohn’s Haskalah (“Enlightenment”) movement toward an integration of Jews into mainstream German and European society. The woodcut stag device on the title page is the printer’s emblem of Zevi Hirsch Segal Spitz and his son Abraham, as Zevi, in Hebrew, and Hirsch, in German, both mean “stag.” Title within woodcut border. Yerushalmi 84. See Yaari 262-65. A few stains and signs of ceremonial use. Lower corner of one leaf expertly restored, affecting a few words of text but not woodcut illustration; small expert repair to closed tear on title page. A very good copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Ruins at the Ancient City of Gour formerly on the banks of the river Ganges

      London: published for Thomas Daniell by Robert Bowyer, 1795. Colour printed aquatint with hand-finishing by Thomas Daniell, on wove paper. Gour was once the capital of Bengal but had been abandoned in 1575. Gaur, or Gour, is the name of what was once both a capital city and country in what is now Bengal, not far from the India-Bangladesh border. Founded in the 6th century, it was the site of a Buddhist kingdom ruled by a man named Gopala. The Pala Dynasty, known to its enemies as the Lords of Gauda, reigned during the 8th century, and eventually was supplanted by the Sena Dynasty. No written record of Gaur exists prior to the Muslim Conquest of 1198 however. Since then, plunder, plague, neglect and the jungle have ruled. In addition, the course of the Ganges changed over the intervening period, lessening the region's usefulness. Very little remains of the city that was once there. Thomas Daniell here drew one of the more enduring ruins, what is probably the Great Golden Mosque or Bara Darwaza. It is intriguing from an architectural history view for its pointed arch and what appear to be octagonal towers. The Daniells' Oriental Scenery is one of the finest illustrated works on India. Thomas Daniell and his nephew William spent nine years in India making studies, sketches and drawings of the scenery, architecture, and antiquities that graced the countryside. They then devoted a further thirteen years to publishing their remarkably accurate aquatints. In Britain, the impact was explosive. A cult of Indian architecture, landscaping and interior decoration arose, with the Royal Pavilion at Brighton as its centerpiece. The Daniells gave the English public their first accurate look at the exotic sub-continent. Their great achievement lay in their ability to blend the picturesque with the real, resulting in images that captured the European taste for sublime landscapes, while grounded in and faithful to their subjects. The Daniells brought the romance of the English landscape to the antiquities of India and provided England with an evocative vision of this wondrous country. Consisting of one hundred and forty-four views, published in six parts, the work was issued in seven stages: three sets of twenty-four plates titled Oriental Scenery with title dates of 1795, 1797, and 1801; twelve plates titled Antiquities of India dated 1799; twenty-four plates titled Hindoo Excavations dated 1803; twenty-four plates titled Views in Hindoostan dated 1807; and twelve further plates of Antiquities of India published without a title page in 1808. All plates were engraved by the Daniells and all are taken from their drawings save the twenty-four plates of Hindoo Excavations, which are after drawings by James Wales. Abbey Travel II 420, no.127; cf. Lowndes I, p.588; Martinelli/Michell India Yesterday and today "8 - Gaur, Dakhil gate"; cf. RIBA 799-804; cf. Sutton The Daniells (1954) p.156; cf. Tooley 172.

      Des Lauriers [1795/6], Paris - First Edition, later issue. Lesure p. 497. BUC p. 793. RISM P2102. First Edition, with imprint "chez le Suisse de l'Hôtel de Noailles" (RISM P2100), is from 1783. The first Des Lauriers issue dates from ca. 1792.Dated according to publisher's catalogue and imprints. Didon, a "tragédie lyrique" to a libretto by Jean François Marmontel was first performed at Fontainebleau on October 16, 1783."In 1783 Piccinni reached his second peak with a highly successful revival of Atys and the introduction of Didon, which momentarily eclipsed the rising star of Sacchini. The sixth and most successful of the nine serious French operas that Piccinni wrote during his sojourn in Paris, Didon continued to be performed there until 1836 and received performances in French and German translation throughout Europe during the first quarter of the 19th century."

Early crosses in red crayon to pp. 69-71. We have not traced any professional performances in which Mlle.

The sixth and most successful of the nine serious French operas that Piccinni wrote during his sojourn in Paris, Didon continued to be performed there until 1836 and received performances in French and German translation throughout Europe during the first quarter of the 19th century."

        [Manuscript]: Considerations on the Divine Nature of Christ, as held forth in Scripture ... By Lewis Nicolas [Nicola], of Philadelphia. 1795.

      Philadelphia. 1795. Folio (33 x 21cm). Quarter-bound in contemporary paper over boards. pp. [2 (title)] 181-434 [435-460 (indexes)]. Manuscript text on the rectos (beginning on p. 181), with notes on the versos (in some chapters the main text is written on both sides). A complete work in Nicolas' hand, consisting of a Preface (pp. 181-188); Introduction (pp. 189-254); five Chapters (pp. 255-434); and Indexes [26pp.]. Untrimmed quires of handmade laid-paper sheets bearing three distinct watermarks: Buttanshaw 1794; GR 1795; and Golding & Snelgrove (undated). The front fly leaf has the undated watermark of D & C Blauw; and a binder's blank bifolium at the back has a Golding & Snelgrove watermark dated 1804, thus indicating the year when the manuscript was presumably bound-up. Housed in a modern cloth clamshell box with a leather spine label titled in gold.Ownership signature on the front fly leaf of William Henry Black (London, 25 March 1841), a prolific writer on antiquarian and archaeological subjects, pastor of a London-based sect of Seventh Day Baptists, and founder of the Mill Yard Library, Goodman's Fields, London. Two short ink notes: (1) on the front pastedown: "This MS belongs to the Mill Yard Library... " and (2) an auction catalogue citation at the top of the front free endpaper: "J. Stephens, 14 London Road, Southwark, Catal. Part 5. no. 262."). The boards and spine back are soiled and worn, the front board is split along the joint (still holding snug), very good.A rare, unpublished manuscript by Colonel Lewis Nicola of Philadelphia, a prominent Revolutionary War military leader, founding member of the American Philosophical Society, and author of the famous 1782 petition to George Washington (known as the Newburgh letter) recommending that Washington become king. Despite Washington's stern rebuke (which was kept secret), the Continental Congress brevetted Nicola Brigadier-General, and the close relationship between Washington and Nicola was soon restored.Very much a man of the enlightenment, in the 1760s Nicola founded a Circulating Library and was the first American to establish and edit a journal devoted to scientific, philosophical and scholarly study and dissemination in the colonies. He published several papers and a military manual for the Continental Army in 1776. After the war he continued to serve the new federal government and the city of Philadelphia in various capacities, all the while remaining active in the American Philosophical Society and Pennsylvania Society of the Cincinnati, and remained in the forefront of scientific, philosophical, and religious scholarship of the new nation for the rest of his life.Consisting of 282 pages, the manuscript was written after the publication in 1791 of his controversial pamphlet: The Divinity of Jesus Christ Considered, From Scripture evidences in which he argued that there was no basis in Scripture for Christ's divinity. As a result of the controversy that ensued, Nicola wrote this manuscript in response, both doubling-down and expanding his argument. As he notes in the Preface:"I resolved to publish, in a small pamphlet, my collection of passages of sacred writ which relate to this grand subject; with such remarks as I was capable of making on each ... this I did in 1791 in hopes of procuring further instruction, nor was I disappointed. Dr. White, our Rev. Bishop [William White, First Bishop of Pennsylvania] having not only favoured me with verbal information, but likewise with Books on the subject, from which, and other aids of the last kind I have been enabled to make the following extracts from Trinitarian Writers, and, with my observations, add them to my original work."It is likely that Nicola intended this manuscript to be published as a new edition of the work; but realizing the unpopularity of his views, and the financial cost, he opted against its publication. As in the Newburgh letter, Nicola's handwriting is neat and legible throughout: "The result of my enquiry and reflections is, that I have been through a long life under an error of a serious nature ... With opinions thus imbibed in infancy and riveted by a continuance of more than sixty years, during which my attention was principally called to military matters ... I had a hard conflict before I could overcome the prejudice of education ... Prejudice, particularly when early imbibed, and confirmed by long habit, is certainly inimical to alteration, even to improvement. It is with much difficulty the jaundiced eye can admit the light of reason, and violent conflicts are often requisite before truth can prevail."A remarkable surviving manuscript from this important soldier, scientist, and man of letters from colonial Philadelphia. .

        [THE MANUSCRIPT LETTER BOOK OF JAMES MONROE AS MINISTER TO FRANCE, 1794 - 1795]

      Paris, 1795. [324]pp., including 112 letters, eighteen previously unknown and twelve with previously unrecorded corrections in Monroe's hand. Folio. Contemporary green vellum. Part of spine lacking, slightly soiled and rubbed. Parisian stationer's label on front pastedown. Lightly dampstained, affecting legibility only in the rear of the volume (on pp.292-322). In a half morocco box. [324]pp., including 112 letters, eighteen previously unknown and twelve with previously unrecorded corrections in Monroe's hand. Folio. The retained secretarial copy letter book of James Monroe as Minister to France in 1794 and 1795, containing 112 letters written by Monroe to both American and European leaders. Monroe, a leading Republican politician and later fifth President of the United States, was sent on a mission to Revolutionary France at a critical point in the foreign affairs of George Washington's second administration.  Besides much highly important correspondence, the letter book contains eighteen previously unknown letters and another dozen with added unrecorded annotations in Monroe's hand.  The secretarial copies are probably in the hand of Monroe's secretary, Fulwar Skipwith. James Monroe was appointed Minister to France at a difficult moment in Franco-American relations.  The intrigues of the French minister to the United States, Genet, and the extremes of the Paris Terror had deeply strained relations between the two countries, closely allied just a few years earlier.  The French had asked for the recall of Monroe's predecessor, Gouverneur Morris.  President Washington, appointing the Federalist, John Jay, Minister to England, sought to placate France by appointing a Republican as Minister there.  Monroe, who had been an active party leader as a Senator from Virginia and often at odds with the administration, was not Washington's first choice.  However, the President sought to appear non-partisan in diplomatic affairs, and perhaps thought he could control Monroe by strict instructions from the Secretary of State Edmund Randolph. Monroe sailed for France in the summer of 1794, arriving in Paris in August, a week after the execution of Robespierre and the collapse of the Terror.  In an atmosphere which seemed far more conducive to good Franco-American relations, Monroe almost immediately exceeded his instructions by addressing the French National Convention instead of conducting his discussions quietly.  News of this brought strong rebukes from Randolph, and opened the door to ever-increasing tension between the Minister and Washington's executive branch.  As time went on "Monroe often seemed a party spokesman rather than a representative of his government" (ANB).  This tension grew as John Jay negotiated a treaty with England on Federalist principles largely laid out by Alexander Hamilton.  Monroe made no secret of his dislike for Jay and his treaty, and chaffed at his government's instructions. The present letter book includes all of Monroe's communications to the Washington administration during the critical first part of his period as Minister, from shortly after his arrival, in September 1794, through the end of the following year, when relations with France had soured because of American negotiations with England.  It thus includes some of the most important letters from Monroe, both ones published later and others that have never been published to this day.  It also includes his letters to the President and Representatives of the French people and the Committee of Public Safety.  The bulk of the correspondence is to the executive branch of the United States government and the Secretary of State, Edmund Randolph. Ironically, Monroe found his own position in France undermined by the American adoption of Jay's Treaty, which was viewed with great hostility by the French Directory.  He was even further handicapped by Jay's refusal to share the terms of the treaty with him (see his letter of March 17, 1795 here, in which he complains to Randolph).  Monroe thus found himself officially arguing for the English treaty ratified by the Federalists at home, while privately agreeing with the French opposition to it.  As the French adopted an anti-American stance because of Jay's Treaty, it made Monroe's recall inevitable. Seen off with regret by the French, who liked him personally, he was greeted with hostility by the John Adams administration on his return home in the summer of 1797. Monroe immediately published an account and defense of his conduct as Minister to France, A VIEW OF THE CONDUCT OF THE EXECUTIVE... (Philadelphia, 1797).  In the introduction he openly stated his hostility to the actions of the executive branch he had represented, and his sense of betrayal by Washington and Randolph.  "Upon my arrival in Paris...I found that the work of alienation and disunion had been carried further than I had before even suspected."  He illustrated his partisan points by publishing much of his private diplomatic correspondence.  Most of the letters which were originally recorded by Monroe in this letter book were published in A VIEW..., and this letter book must have been his source for his correspondence when writing the book.  Not greatly to the credit of either Monroe or his correspondents, the communications illuminate the political machinations and intrigues of a nation in its infancy. The unpublished letters are of major significance, and Monroe's autograph corrections to others further enhance the importance of this letter book.  They illuminate his working methods, and specifically his attendance to the written record of his activities in an extremely difficult time in his professional career. Most notable is his April 13, 1795 letter to Edmund Randolph.  Another, addressed to Thomas Fitzsimons, known for supplying arms to the continental army during the Revolutionary War, is the only known letter to exist between the two.  A further letter is addressed to Secretary of War Timothy Pickering, advising on the purchase on his behalf of military books and equipment.  It also reports back on the engagement of a French cannon-founder to teach his craft in America. We read of Monroe's other activities with the inclusion of a draft (apparently never sent) of letters to Short, the American representative in Madrid.  These were part of an elaborate plot to gain bargaining power with Spain by spreading false rumors of a Franco-American alliance against Spanish interests in America. Six unpublished letters concern the repayment to the Dutch financiers Willink, Van Staphorst & Hubbard of money loaned to the nascent United States government, including the difficulties of transporting the funds from France to the Netherlands, and the eventual misplacement of the money, which Monroe's opponents, on his return to America, sought to turn against him and undermine his political career.  Five of the six are addressed to the Dutch financiers and shed new light on this poorly understood incident in Monroe's diplomatic career. The last seven unpublished letters regard consular matters, supplying details of American citizens in France and British spies passing as Americans. Notable quotes from the unpublished letters are as follows: 1) Nov. 18, 1794: To Mr Short, Madrid. [1]p.  "It is necessary for me to inform you that the most perfect good understanding subsists between our ally the French Republick and the United States, and that I have reason to believe that France will prosecute the war against Spain." 2) April 13, 1795: To Mr Randolph, Philadelphia. [3]pp.  A significant letter regarding the Jay Treaty and its effect on him as Minister to France.  "I cannot but regret that the conduct of Mr Jay in that business has been not only such as to excite the jealousy of the [French] government as to the contents of the treaty and in consequence greatly to check its friendly disposition toward it." 3) July 10, 1795: The Mr B. Highborn of Boston. [1?2]p. Regarding passport matters.  "Permit in reply to say that the evidence which is demanded can never be given by any Americans except those who take offices or being born in foreign nations." 4) Sept. 8, 1795: To Messrs Wilhelm & Jan Willink, et al, Amsterdam. [2/3]p.  "Inclosed an extract of the letter of our secretary of the Treasury to you respecting the fund to be deposited here for your use...." 5) Sept. 30, 1795: Thomas Fitzsimons. [11?2]pp.  "...you have a claim against the French Republick for supplies rendered to the Island of Guadeloupe...." 6) Oct. 9, 1795: Messrs Wilhelm & Jan Willink et al, Amsterdam. [11?2]pp.  "I transmit you herewith a mandate from this government for 300,000...and which if paid are to be taken in account of the draft of Mr Swan for 120,000 dollars." 7) Oct. 19, 1795: Messrs Wilhelm & Jan Willink et al, Amsterdam. [11?4]pp.  "...we accepted the draft in the expectation that it would be paid...." 8) Oct. 22, 1795: Messrs Wilhelm & Jan Willink et al, Amsterdam. [1?2]p.  "I explained to you in my last why the credit in Hamburgh was not forwarded on to you...." 9) Oct. 26, 1795: To the Secretary of War (Timothy Pickering). [1]p.  "I send you within the account tendered me by Mr Skipwith our consul general for the amount expended in the purchase of books and instruments for your department...." 10) Oct. 9, 1795: Messrs Wilhelm & Jan Willink et al, Amsterdam. [2/3]p.  "The bill on the house of Dallards and Swan has been the cause of more embarrassment and trouble to me and disappointment to you." After his ministerial career, Monroe served multiple terms as governor of Virginia, later returning to French diplomacy to negotiate the terms of the Louisiana Purchase.  After a further diplomatic career as Minister to England, he returned to the United States in 1807 and again served as governor of Virginia.  From 1811 he served as Madison's Secretary of State, and succeeded him as fifth president in 1817. This letter book is of critical importance to both the career of James Monroe, later the fifth president, and to the history of American diplomacy in the Federal era.  The letter book has remained in private hands until now, and is unknown to scholars or the James Monroe Museum.  A remarkable opportunity to acquire a major American manuscript at the heart of the issues of the Federal era.
