Early crosses in red crayon to pp. 69-71. We have not traced any professional performances in which Mlle. Naudet is mentioned, however the fact that this copy belonged to a female student at the Conservatoire in the early post Revolutionary years is intriguing. Binding slightly worn, joints cracked. Binder's hole to upper inner corner throughout; outer margins of title and gutter of some pages stained, occasional stains elsewhere; tears to several leaves repaired; portion of outer blank margin of pp. 279/280 torn away not affecting music. .

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."

        Recherches sur la nature et les causes de la richesse des Nations. Traduites de l'Anglois d'Adam Smith, par J.A. Roucher. Deuxième édition, Revue et considérablement corrigée.

      - Paris, F. Buisson, An 3e de la République [1795]. 5 volumes in-8, demi-veau bleu nuit, dos lisses ornés d'un décor romantique de palettes, filets gras et ondulés et fers spéciaux répétés, titres dorés, tranches mouchetées (rel. vers 1830). Rare deuxième édition posthume de la traduction par le poète, traducteur et homme des Lumières Jean-Antoine Roucher. Très lue, grâce à la grande renommée de Roucher parmi ses contemporains, cette traduction contribua à diffuser l’œuvre de Smith en France au tournant des XVIIIe et du XIXe siècle. La table, les notes critiques et très nombreuses augmentations et corrections (un volume supplémentaire) ont été composées en prison par Roucher, avant son exécution. Arrêté en même temps qu’André Chénier sous l’accusation imaginaire de "complot monarchiste", les deux poètes seront ensemble condamnés à mort le 7 thermidor an II. Dans la charrette qui les emmena vers la guillotine, ils échangent des vers tirés d’Andromaque: "Oui, puisque je perds un ami si fidèle ". Cette deuxième édition de Roucher est rare. Elle manque à la BnF et ne figurent pas aux principales bibliographies et bibliothèques spécialisées (à l'exception de 'Vanderblue Memorial Collection of Smithiana', p. 25). Très bon exemplaire, frais, bien relié.

        BESKRIFNING OFVER SVENSKA VESTINDISKA ON SR. BARTHELEMI, SAMT OARNE ST. EUSTACHE OCH ST. CHRISTOPHER

      Stockholm, 1795. Contemporary three-quarter calf and speckled boards. Spine worn and rubbed. Later ink ownership signature on front pastedown. Internally bright and clean. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth box. The first edition of Euphrasén's description of the flora and fauna of St. Barts, St. Christopher, and St. Eustachius, which includes the large folding map of St. Barts. Sabin records a 1798 German edition, which was not issued with plates. The work is divided into sections by island and is presented as a series of brief descriptions rather than a cohesive narrative. The author was for many years the pastor of the church at Lorient in St. Barts, and this book is one of the primary sources for the island in its Swedish period, as well as containing the first map of that vaunted refuge of jet- setters. An attractive early scientific investigation of the Lesser Antilles region. Scarce. OCLC locates a total of ten copies.

        Poems by Goldsmith and Parnell -- WITH A SUITE OF SEPARATELY PRINTED CUTS FROM THE 1804 EDITION

      London: W. Bulmer, 1795 - 4to. xx+76 pp. Five full-page, wood-engraved plates, and eight vingettes by Thomas and John Bewick. A superb production printed by Bulmer at his Shakespeare Press and sold originally for a guinea. A contemporary reviewer exulted in "the present admirable specimen of perfection in the kindred arts of printing, engraving, and paper-making . what particularly distinguishes this volume is the ornament which it received from the engravings in wood, executed by the Bewicks, the delicacy and clearness of which are scarcely conceivable." Gordon N. Ray concurred, calling this "by far the handsomest of contemporary volumes containing Bewick's work." Some light foxing, else a very good copy in quarter leather, with some rubbing to the marbled boards. Included with this copy is a suite of five wood engravings printed separately by Bulmer at the time of the second printing of the book. The engravings, dated January 1, 1804, are not mentioned by Hugo or Tattersfield, though the latter notes a set of impressions of full-sized plates, possibily taken from the 1795 printing, issued sometime after 1830 at 21s (see Tattersfiled 2: 532, 3:91n9). The engravings are in remarkably fine condition. Hugo 78 (1795 edn), 4160 (1804 edn); Ray 50; Tattersfield 2.481.

      London, 1795. [bound with:] EXPLANATORY ARTICLE, SIGNED AT PHILADELPHIA, THE 4th OF MAY, 1796, TO BE ADDED TO THE TREATY...SIGNED AT LONDON, THE 19th OF NOVEMBER, 1794. London. 1796. 5pp. [bound with:] EXPLANATORY ARTICLE, SIGNED AT LONDON, THE 15th OF MARCH, 1798, TO BE ADDED TO THE TREATY...SIGNED AT LONDON, THE 19th OF NOVEMBER, 1794. London. 1798. 5pp. Small quarto. Modern half morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Titlepage of the "Treaty..." dust soiled. Titlepage of the "Explanatory Articles" signed at Philadelphia in 1796 bound in before the text of the "Explanatory Articles" signed at London in 1798, and vice versa. Near fine. Three works, including the second American treaty with England, known as Jay's Treaty, and two related articles, signed later and added to the treaty, one concerning the Indian tribes in the Ohio country and the other addressing the issue of the St. Croix River and the boundary between the United States and Canada. Jay's Treaty, arguably the most controversial American treaty until the Versailles and League of Nations treaties after World War I, was negotiated with the British by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Jay. It sought to settle questions arising from the Treaty of Paris of 1783, to clarify commercial relations and neutral rights issues between England and the United States, and to secure the British evacuation of military posts in the Old Northwest. By this treaty, England agrees to withdraw from frontier posts in the Ohio country which the Americans felt to be clearly in U.S. territory, and the Americans agree to settle pre- Revolutionary debts. The Americans also received the right to trade with British possessions in the West Indies. The question of neutral rights, however, was not addressed to the liking of American commercial interests or public opinion, and the arrogant British searches and seizures of American shipping were not checked, which proved to be a long-simmering issue. The treaty provoked much hostile reaction in the U.S., and it was due only to the prestige of President Washington, who felt the measure necessary, that it was passed by the Congress. The controversy over Jay's Treaty spurred the solidification of the party division in American politics, between the supposedly pro-British faction led by Hamilton who favored the treaty, and the supporters of Jefferson, who opposed it. This is the official English edition of the treaty. The EXPLANATORY ARTICLE... of 1796, which was printed a year later and is much rarer than the treaty itself, is wholly concerned with the Indian tribes in the frontier, and allows the Indians to pass freely across the line in either direction in order to carry on their trade and commerce without the need for a license. The ESTC locates only five copies of the EXPLANATORY ARTICLE..., three in the Public Record Office (Lpro [3], NN, CSmH), and OCLC adds one more. The EXPLANATORY ARTICLE... of 1798 is also very rare. It is concerned with the delineation of the northeastern border between the United States and Canada, specifically with the river St. Croix and the boundary between New Brunswick and what is now Maine. This thorny issue would not be solved until the Webster-Ashburton Treaty of 1842. OCLC locates no copies of the 1798 EXPLANATORY ARTICLES..., ESTC locates only a single copy (CSmH), and NUC adds one more (MiU-C). A most important American treaty, here enhanced by the rare printings of two important additional articles, possibly the only case in which all are found together (except possibly the Huntington).

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM JOHN TRUMBULL TO BENJAMIN WEST]

      Paris, 1795. Old fold lines, though very faint. Chipped along left side of sheet, not affecting text. Minor tears along fold lines on right side; small tear along right side affecting text but without loss. Bright and clean. Very good. John Trumbull writes to his friend and instructor, painter Benjamin West, regarding the purchase of several paintings. This was written during Trumbull's time as John Jay's secretary on the Jay Treaty Commission, after he had been sent to France to discuss the Treaty with James Monroe, the United States minister to France. Trumbull was delayed in France, awaiting orders, and filled his time by collecting art with the help of connoisseur Jean-Baptiste Pierre Lebrun. The letter, sent from Paris, reads: "Dear Sir, You recollect my asking your opinion with respect to the prudence of purchasing pictures at present. I have been tempted to purchase a number which are now packing up to be sent forward as soon as possible, and I hope soon to have the pleasure of shewing you several such as we seldom see. Among them is a large landscape by Berghem [probably the Dutch painter Nicolaes Pieterszoon Berchem], clear and beautiful as Claude. It is allowed here to have no equal among his works except one which is in the National Museum - a small picture by Nicholas Poussin, Christ in the Garden of Olives, the most beautiful thing I ever saw - a small picture a Religious Allegory by Guido - a St. John by Murillos - a Virgin, Child & Angels by Schidone - another by Augustin Carrache, a Magdalen by Carlo Dolci, another by LeSoeur - a Holy Family small & beautiful by Nicholas Poussin - Two capital Landscapes by Salvater - two capital pictures by Teniers, &c &c. They have been bought with the assistance of LeBrun's Judgment, and are most of them from celebrated collections. I have directed them to remain in the King's Warehouse until I arrive which I hope will be in five or six weeks." This letter provides an insight into Trumbull's own collecting interest and artistic influences. Hailed as the official painter of the Revolution, Trumbull studied painting and art in England and France. The youngest son of the governor of Connecticut, the elder John Trumbull very much wanted his son to go into law. Trumbull did study the law, but gladly joined the fight against the British when the Revolution broke out. He eventually served as Washington's second aide-de- campe, having been brought to the General's attention through some very accurate drawings he had made of British gun emplacements. He rose to the rank of colonel as a deputy adjutant-general, but resigned the commission he finally received because it was dated three months late, a slight his honor could not tolerate. He refused to return to the law, finding it quite distasteful, and chose instead to pursue his true passion, art, against his family's wishes. Though he was never particularly wealthy in this pursuit, he did achieve a certain amount of success in his own lifetime. Among his most famous works are those commissioned in 1817 by Congress to adorn the Capitol building: "The Surrender of General Burgoyne at Saratoga," "The Surrender of General Cornwallis at Yorktown," "The Declaration of Independence," and "The Resignation of General Washington.

Of this group, one of the most notable was Dr. Thomas Beddoes (1760-1808), of Shropshire, who founded the Pneumatic Institute at Clifton in 1798 for the treatment of disease by inhalation. Watt was employed to design and construct the apparatus and in 1790 Watt invented the gasometer. The essays by Beddoes and Watt On Factitious Airs (1794-1796) advance the important therapeutic concept of treating certain diseases by placing the patient in a factitious atmosphere, and their general plan of treating respiratory troubles by inhalations of different gasses was revived by Louis Waldenburg in his apparatus for differential pneumotherapy in 1873. Watt had an interest in the development of pneumatic medicine. On 7th December 1794, he wrote to his friend, Sir Joseph Banks, President of the Royal Society Mankind has been long enough occasionally poisoned by the channel of the lungs, let us try if we cannot receive medicines by the same way. cf. Watt's papers, Birmingham City Library. - - "The most important contribution to the study of therapeutic inhalation was made by Thomas Beddoes. . The designs of the apparatus were prepared in the summer of 1794, and Watt wrote to Beddoes 'I send you with this , drawings of my apparatus for producing and receiving the various airs which may be supposed to be useful in Medicine."

        HISTOIRE DE LA CONQUETE DU MEXIQUE, TRADUITE DE L'ESPAGNOL D'ANTONIO DE SOLIS [manuscript caption title]

      [N.p., but France, 1795. Folio. Late 19th-century black half morocco and cloth, spine gilt. Corners rubbed. Front inner hinge cracked. Minor soiling, some contemporary ink staining. Very good. Manuscript translation, in French, of this classic history of the conquest of Mexico, first published in Madrid in 1684. Though undated, it is written on paper watermarked 1793 in a neat and uniform hand. A French translation had appeared as early as 1691, but this appears to be a different translation. The HISTORIA DE LA CONQUISTA DE MEXICO was reprinted in multiple editions in every European language and was popular on both sides of the Atlantic. The author was a noted Spanish dramatist and historian. His work includes theatre, poetry, and prose, and he has been considered one of the last great writers of Spanish baroque literature. This work remained the most important European source on Latin American history up through the first part of the 19th century.

        THIRD CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES...AN ACT MAKING APPROPRIATIONS FOR THE SUPPORT OF GOVERNMENT FOR THE YEAR ONE THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED AND NINETY FIVE [caption title]

      Philadelphia, 1795. Folio. Old fold lines. Very minor soiling. Very good. An official copy, signed by Secretary of State Edmund Randolph, of an act passed by the Third Congress, listing the appropriations for the federal budget for 1795. It includes salaries for the various government officials (the President and Vice President combined received $30,000); expenses such as fire wood, stationery, printing, candles, "and other contingent expenses" of various offices, as well as for the creation of the mint, including the purchase of land and a building to house the mint, and a coining press. The budget also provides for pensions, and for the care of the widow and orphaned children of two army officers. This is the final budget devised by Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton, who left office at the end of January 1795. "Approved, January the second, 1795," and signed in print by Speaker of the House Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg, Vice President John Adams, and President George Washington. Two states of this imprint are noted. One, Evans 29688, includes a statement of deposition: "Deposited among the rolls in the Office of the Secretary of State. Secretary of State," and is signed by Secretary of State Edmund Randolph. The other, Bristol B9364, is without this statement. The copy at hand is the former, signed by Secretary of State Edmund Randolph. NAIP locates only one copy with the deposition statement, at the Library of Congress. Scarce in either format, and particularly rare with the signature of the Secretary of State. Edmund Randolph became the second Secretary of State on Jan. 2, 1794, succeeding Thomas Jefferson, who resigned at the end of 1793. He continued the practice begun in the First Congress of the Secretary of State signing a small number of "official" copies of Congressional acts for distribution to the States and important government officials. After the Third Congress, official acts were no longer signed in manuscript by the Secretary of State.

        1795 OFFICIAL HANDWRITTEN DOCUMENT SIGNED by KING OF SPAIN to the GOVERNOR of CUBA

      1795. OFFICIAL MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENT on laid paper, in Spanish. SIGNED BY THE KING OF SPAIN with "YO EL REY". Appears to be the SIGNATURE of KING CHARLES IV / KING CARLOS IV. It is an actual hand signature, not the woodblock YO EL REY signature that is so often seen on his "signed" documents. I have confidence that this hand signature is that of the KING, though it could have been hand signed in his name by one of his officials, I have no way of knowing with absolute certainty. Written on both sides of an 8.25x11.75" sheet of laid, watermarked paper. The document is headed with a manuscript EL REY at the top of the front page, and is SIGNED on the back page, at the end of the written text, with YO EL REY. Undated (insofar as I can decipher), circa 1790s (1795?) The document begins with: "Intendente de Exército, y Real Hacienda de la Isla de Cuba" (i.e. addressed to the Governing Official of Cuba). I have not completely translated this document because the handwriting combined with the oxidation of the iron gall ink (causing offsetting from one side of the page to the other) makes it difficult. I do note that it discusses travel from Cadiz to New Spain, and from Veracruz to Guiana and Caracas. The paper has an interesting WATERMARK with the letters A and T inside circles, one on top of the other, with a cross at the very top. Also interesting is that at the bottom margin of the back page, about 5" below the King's "Yo El Rey" signature, is another signature (that I cannot make out) just below which are three additional handwritten lines. This brief text also mentions Cuba and Havana. Why these few lines are present at the bottom of the back page I have no idea. The document is in generally GOOD condition with a horizontal fold across the middle, quite a number of small holes in the writing where the pen point penetrated the paper, and some typical signs of age and use including oxidation of the iron gall ink, some edge wear and age toning. Still a solid and well-kept historic document relating to Cuba, South America, New Spain, and the King of Spain. I have tried to provide some high quality photos for your examination. I welcome questions and informative comments. Good

        THIRD CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES...AN ACT MAKING APPROPRIATIONS FOR THE SUPPORT OF THE MILITARY ESTABLISHMENT FOR THE YEAR ONE THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED AND NINETY FIVE; AND FOR THE EXPENSES OF THE MILITIA LATELY CALLED INTO THE SERVICE OF THE UNITED STATES [caption title]

      Philadelphia, 1795. Old fold lines. Minor age toning and a few small tears at extremities. Very good. An Act passed by the Third Congress appropriating funds for the military, and in particular, those troops sent to Western Pennsylvania to quell the Whiskey Rebellion. 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. As with many of his other proposals, it aroused bitter opposition in some quarters. Some objected that it laid federal taxes which properly belong to the states, while frontier representatives considered themselves singled out for an onerous tax. The impact of the whiskey revenue took several years to take full effect while the system of collectors was installed. Growing resistance to the tax continued to develop through the summer of 1794, when the Whiskey Rebellion really began. Congress repealed the excise tax on distilled spirits in March 1797, effectively ending the cause of the revolt. "Approved, thirty first Decr. 1794" and signed in print by Speaker of the House Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg, Vice President John Adams, and President George Washington. Two states of this imprint are noted. One, Evans 29689, includes a statement of deposition: "Deposited among the rolls in the Office of the Secretary of State. Secretary of State," and is signed by Secretary of State Edmund Randolph. The other, Bristol B9365, is without this statement. This is the former, signed by Secretary of State Edmund Randolph. NAIP locates four copies in all, but does not distinguish between the two states. Scarce in either format, and particularly rare with the signature of the Secretary of State. Edmund Randolph became the second Secretary of State on January 2, 1794, succeeding Thomas Jefferson, who resigned at the end of 1793. He continued the practice begun in the First Congress of the Secretary of State signing a small number of "official" copies of Congressional acts for distribution to the States and important government officials. After the Third Congress, official acts were no longer signed in manuscript by the Secretary of State.

        [MANUSCRIPT MEMORANDUM CONCERNING COPPER MINING AND EXPLORATION IN CARVER LAND GRANT IN THE GREAT LAKES REGION, SIGNED BY WILLIAM PATERSON, HENRY KNOX, AND FOUR OTHERS, AND INVOLVING ALEXANDER HAMILTON]

      [Np], 1795. Small quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old folds. Minor soiling. Narrow strip of later paper attached to left edge. Very good. In a brown half morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. A significant memorandum signed by several important Revolutionary-era figures, including William Paterson and Henry Knox, concerning a joint venture to investigate copper mines in the Great Lakes region on the so-called Carver Grant. Many public figures in the founding days of the United States dabbled in land speculation and other similar ventures. This group of eminent Americans was apparently involved with the Carver Grant, a land grant totaling hundreds of square miles located in western Wisconsin and in Minnesota (including the present- day location of Saint Paul), which was supposedly given to explorer Jonathan Carver by two local Sioux chiefs in 1767. For several decades after Carver's death his heirs and various others tried to capitalize on the grant by petitioning the United States Congress to recognize its validity, and by selling and reselling lands in the region. Jonathan Carver (1710-80) was born in Weymouth, Massachusetts, raised in Connecticut, and spent most of his adult years in western Massachusetts. He distinguished himself through his service in the French and Indian War, and in 1766-67 undertook to explore Great Britain's newly-won lands around the Upper Mississippi River, partly with a mind to seeking a route to the Pacific Ocean. Carver spent the 1770s in London, petitioning the Crown for compensation for his explorations and seeking to publish the journal of his travels. Carver's TRAVELS THROUGH THE INTERIOR PARTS OF NORTH AMERICA was published in London in 1778 and was immediately popular, appearing in several editions. Despite this, Carver died penniless in London in 1780. In 1781 a "third edition" of Carver's TRAVELS appeared, issued by Dr. John Lettsom, a benefactor of Carver's British widow. In that edition, as part of biographical material on Jonathan Carver, the text of a deed dated May 1, 1767 was published for the first time, in which Carver was apparently given hundreds of miles of land in Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Over the next several decades Carver's heirs in the United States and England, as well as dozens of others who bought and tried to sell land in the grant area, worked to prove the validity of the grant and to profit from the sales. Congress was petitioned to validate the grant, the heirs of the Sioux chiefs were appealed to, and various schemes were developed by Samuel Harrison of Vermont, the Rev. Samuel Peters, and others, to sell and resell the land. The decades-long tale of the Carver Grant is best told by Milo Quaife and John Parker in the references cited below. The present document reads: "Memorandum that we whose names are hereunto subscribed do covenant, promise and agree with each other to use our separate and joint interest in obtaining a right of preemption for the lands mentioned in a book known by the title of Carver's TRAVELS and where he mentions having seen vast quantities of virgin copper and we further covenant with each other that we will become equally concerned in the above undertaking both in profit and loss. Witness our hands this thirteenth day of March and year seventeen hundred and ninety five. [signed] Benj. Henfrey / Wm. Paterson / H. Knox / W. Macpherson / Anthy. W. White / James Chambers." The docketing on the second leaf contains a list of "parties to the within articles respecting the exploring the country on Lake Superior, &c," and the list includes Knox, Paterson, Alexander Hamilton, New Jersey Governor Richard Howell, and six others, plus "if approved by him, His Excellency the Honble. Major General [Anthony] Wayne." Hamilton at this point had been a private citizen for six weeks, having retired as Secretary of the Treasury on Jan. 31, 1795. The document is signed by William Paterson, a signer of the Constitution, U.S. Senator, governor of New Jersey (1790-93), and Associate Justice of the Supreme Court from 1793 until his death in 1806; Henry Knox, Washington's first secretary of war (1789-94); William Bingham, a Pennsylvania Congressman; Benjamin Henfrey, an Englishman who had emigrated to Pennsylvania and patented a method of making gas light, using his "thermo-lamp," which he showcased in Baltimore, Richmond, and Philadelphia; and William Macpherson and Anthony W. White, who both served in the United States Army and were involved in quelling the Whiskey Rebellion in 1794. A remarkable document illustrating a pioneering western joint venture, and Alexander Hamilton's return to private investing. This document sold for $7170 at Heritage Auctions on Oct. 24, 2007.

        Entrance tokens for Gilbert Pidcock's menagerie, ca 1795

      circa, 1795. Two bronze tokens, diameter 21cms. in very good condition. Pidcock's menagerie was at Exeter Exchange on the Strand in London. He exhibited exotic animals since 1793, including a kangaroo, elephant, rhinoceros and cockatoos. The tokens here on offer are one showing an elephant and on verso a cockatoo; the other showing an elephant and a two-headed cow. Gilbert Pidcock had worked in travelling shows since he was a young man, and in 1795 took sole ownership of the London-based menagerie which bore his name, situated in the Strand in a building called the Exeter Change. One of the grand sights of the metropolis, people flocked to see the exotic animals and birds on show, and he started at an ideal time for acquiring specimens from Australian and South-East Asia. One of Pidcock's regular visitors was the wood engraver and artist Thomas Bewick, who used the animals as models for the engravings he included in works like his famous General History of Quadrupeds.The rare bronze token advertising their acquisition of a crested cockatoo, given the rather limited detail of the present specimen, and the lack of explicit records of the birds kept by Pidcock, it is not possible to be precise about exactly what kind of cockatoo is depicted: having said that, it must be one of the birds endemic to Australia or Indonesia: the sulphur-, orange-, yellow- or otherwise crested cockatoos. In John White's Journal of a Voyage to New South Wales, to cite one obvious comparison, there is a "Crested Cockatoo" that was drawn by Sarah Stone.The two-headed heifer was a live exhibit and an advertisement referring to it appeared in the 29th January 1791 edition of the London Chronicle: "Now exhibiting at the Lyceum Strand. The surprising Heifer with two heads. This very remarkable creature has two Heads, Four Horns, Four Ears, Four Nostrils, through each of which it breathes, &c. This truly wonderful Curiosity is the only one of the kind in Europe; and what is more astonishing, it takes its Sustenance with both mouths at the same time, to the admiration of the Faculty, and the Beholders in general; and it also the received opinion of John Hunter, Esq., Professor of Anatomy, that it has two hearts. One of the Heads, together with the Horns, represents that of a bull, and the other a Cow. The height of the animal is thirteen hands, and each Horn measures twenty-five inches long. Admittance One Shilling. N.B.- Most money given for all sorts of foreign Beasts and Birds, if alive, by G. Pidcock."
