        Trois Sonates pour le Forte-Piano avec accompagnement de Violon obligé, et Basse ad libitum... Oeuvre 22me. Prix 2,,45 Xr. [Parts].

      Offenbach sur le Mein: Jean André [PN 880]. [1795]. Pianoforte: [1] (title printed from small plate), 2-19, [i] (blank) pp.; [1] (title printed from small plate), 2-7, [i] (blank) pp.; Violoncello: [1] (title), 2-5, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. The sonatas (= piano trios) are in A major, D major, and E-flat major respectively. Slightly browned. First Edition. Tare. Matthäus p. 301 (erroneously suggesting identity with an edition by Sieber: "Sonates, 3e livre"). RISM VV1961a (1 copy in Stadtbibliothek Hannover, with identical contents); RISM's claim that the edition contains arrangements of "G.19, G.20, White VIa:3+G.44/3.Satz" does not apply to the present copy; the music does not bear resemblance to any of these works. Not in WorldCat. Not in White (erroneously listed as "Vla: 1-3," following the suggestion of Matthäus). Not in Giazotto. Not in RISM. This music would seem to be otherwise completely unknown, either in printed or manuscript copy. It is very likely that the three "sonatas" (trios) are unrecorded original works by Viotti.

        [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.

        Europe Divided into its Empires, Kingdoms, States Republics, &ca. by Thos. Kitchin ... with many additions and improvements from the latest additions and improvements from the latest surveys and observations of Mr. D'Anville

      London: Robert Laurie & James Whittle, 1795. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour, on a pair of two joined sheets, each sheet measuring 21 1/2 x 50 1/4 inches, if both sheets were joined would form a map measuring 41 1/8 x 50 1/4 inches, overall in good condition. A very fine map of Europe that evinces the talents of two of the period's greatest cartographers Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d'Anville was the spiritual successor to Guillaume De L'Isle in the sense that he maintained the rigorous standard for accuracy that De L'Isle had established. D'Anville was the last French mapmaker to establish an international reputation which was superior to all his contemporaries, as witnessed by the respect shown by English cartographers and publishers during an era when the two countries were often at war and always hostile to one another. Thomas Kitchin's A General Atlas ... The whole being an improvement of the maps of D'Anville and Robert was published in 1790 by Robert Sayer, the present map, published in 1795, was available as a separate map, but also formed part of Kitchin's expanded A New Universal Atlas published by Laurie and Whittle in 1802. The map includes extremely accurate geographical data allied with informative statistics in two columns of text placed on either side of the image area. The town of origin of the map is emphasized by including in each country's section the distance from the main cities to London. Cf. Rumsey 2310 (the atlas which contained this map).

        THE HISTORY OF MASSACHUSETTS, FROM THE FIRST SETTLEMENT THEREOF IN 1628, UNTIL THE YEAR 1750

      Salem & Boston, 1795. Uniformly bound in modern half calf and marbled boards, spines gilt. Bookplates on front pastedowns. First two volumes with light toning and light foxing; a few leaves in volume two heavily foxed. Third volume with minor scattered foxing and soiling. Some later pencil notations throughout all three volumes. A very good set. The third edition of this classic Massachusetts history, with additions and corrections. "Hutchinson's HISTORY OF MASSACHUSETTS-BAY (2 vols., 1760, 1768) accurately recounted these events and contained sympathetic accounts of Puritanism; the Antinomian heresy of Hutchinson's ancestor, Anne Hutchinson; and Massachusetts opposition in the 1680s to the 'tyrannical disposition' of the royalist governor, Sir Edmund Andros, and his administration's 'harpies.' Hutchinson's HISTORY acknowledged the multiplicity of jostling interest groups in Massachusetts and the duty of government to protect the public interest from the demands of self-interested groups" - ANB. Hutchinson (1711-1780), besides being a colonial historian, was governor of Massachusetts from 1771 to 1773, and was a staunch Loyalist. He left Boston for London in late 1773, after he had helped cause the Boston Tea Party, and remained in Exile in England until his death in 1780. The first two volumes of Hutchinson's work on the Massachusetts colony are complete unto themselves; the third volume was published posthumously. Howes does not note this edition.

        [Portrait of Angelica Kauffman and Family]

      1795. Engraving. Printed on laid paper. Collector mark bearing the initials E.O printed in blue ink on verso of sheet. In excellent condition. Image size: 22 x 15 1/16 inches. An exceedingly rare self/family portrait by Raphael Morghen after a painting by Angelica Kauffman. Though the whereabouts of the original painting is not known, this is clearly a self-portrait of Angelica Kauffman (seated) with what appear to be two grown children and a son-in-law. She holds what is perhaps a portrait of her second husband, Francesco Zucchi, who died in 1795. Her children would have to have been from her unhappy first marriage. There is no title but rather a text in French about how virtue is instilled in children. This impressive portrait was painted by the celebrated artist Angelica Kauffman and engraved by the renowned Italian printmaker Raphael Morghen. Kauffman was a child prodigy, who executed her first commissioned work before the age of thirteen. As a child she traveled through Austria and Italy with her father, the painter Joseph Kauffman. She assisted him by painting the backgrounds of his works, but she quickly received her own commissions and established a reputation for herself as an accomplished painter. In 1766 she traveled to London, where she painted portraits and decorative paintings. She was a close friend of Reynolds and was one of the first female members of the British Royal Academy. Goethe called her "the most accomplished woman in Europe". Raphael Morghen received his first artistic training from his father, the accomplished engraver Filippo Morghen. Like Kauffman, Morghen was also a child prodigy, publishing his first engraving at the age of twelve. By the age of twenty he had established himself as one of the premiere engravers in Europe allowing him to garner countless commissions. He worked in Naples, Rome and Florence and produced over two hundred and fifty prints during his prolific career. Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs.

        TREATY OF AMITY, COMMERCE, AND NAVIGATION, BETWEEN HIS BRITANNIC MAJESTY AND THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, CONDITIONALLY RATIFIED BY THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES...TO WHICH IS ANNEXED, A COPIOUS INDEX

      Philadelphia, 1795. 12mo. Contemporary calf, leather label. Calf rubbed and worn, chipped quite heavily along backstrip, hinges cracked. Uniformly tanned, scattered foxing. Ink stamp on titlepage. A good copy in contemporary binding, internally sound. The George Brinley copy, with his small book label on the front pastedown and his signature on the titlepage. This later American printing of Jay's Treaty, printed the same year as the first, is most interesting as an example of the hostility provoked by the treaty in the United States. The copious index is comprised of speeches and reports by members of Congress, town resolutions and memorials, newspaper articles and columns relative to the treaty. Also printed is the text of the U.S. Constitution, the two 1778 treaties with France and the 1783 treaty with Great Britain ending the Revolution. The second American treaty with England, negotiated by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Jay, this treaty sought to resolve diplomatic issues arising out of the 1783 peace treaty, settle commercial problems, and resolve neutral rights issues. By Jay's treaty, England agrees to withdraw from frontier posts in the Ohio country which the Americans felt to be clearly in U.S. territory, but the Americans agree to settle pre-Revolutionary debts, and the arrogant British searches and seizures of American shipping were not checked. The treaty provoked much hostile reaction in the U.S., and it was only the prestige of Washington, who felt the measure necessary, that it was passed by the Congress.

        The Rope Bridge at Serinagur [Srinagar]

      published by Thomas Daniell, London - Aquatint by and after Thomas & William Daniell, coloured by hand. Image size: 17 3/4 x 23 1/2; sheet size: 21 1/8 x 29 1/8 inches. A stunning view of the rope bridge across the Alaknanda valley in Srinagar, from Thomas and William Daniell's celebrated book "Oriental Scenery". The Alaknanda River joins the Bhagirathi to form the Ganges. The Daniells' Oriental Scenery is considered to be the finest illustrated work 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 still lies in their ability to blend the picturesque with the real, resulting in images that capture the European taste for the sublime landscape, while still remaining faithful to their subjects. The Daniells brought the romance of the English landscape to the antiquities of India and provided England with an accurate 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. In their travels through the Himalayas the Daniells descended to the Alaknanda valley, entering Sringagar on the 27 of April, 1789. They were the first Europeans to visit this remote region and were immediately approached by the local raja, who entreated them to help in resolving a bitter feud with the neighboring ruler of Kumaon. They stayed only three days and left hurriedly in hope of avoiding offending the raja. While there, they sketched this lovely view of the rope bridge across the Alaknanda valley. While in the region William made the following observations regarding their sojourn, "The Rajah was in the middle of one of his recurring feuds with his brother, and "the inhabitants of Sirinagur were crossing the River as Quick as possible - they crowded on the Bridge so fast that we thought at times it would have broke, taking their Chesebust, Cots &c with them" (Journal of William Daniell).

        AN HISTORICAL GEOGRAPHICAL, COMMERCIAL, AND PHILOSOPHICAL VIEW OF THE AMERICAN UNITED STATES, AND OF THE EUROPEAN SETTLEMENTS IN AMERICA AND THE WEST-INDIES

      London, 1795. Publisher's original grey paper backstrips and blue paper boards, paper labels. Minor shelf wear. First volume has a small repaired tear to 3D3v, and 3D4 torn along top edge costing parts of the running titles and first line of text. Small ownership signature on front blank of fourth volume. Else a fine copy. Untrimmed. An advance or proof copy of the first edition of Winterbotham's extensive work on America. This copy has no date on the titlepage, the plates (where indicated) are dated "1794," and the paper is watermarked 1794. The engravings here, in particularly excellent condition, are entirely uncolored, including the tobacco plant, which is usually found colored. Later copies are found with slightly more plates and plans. Presumably this copy was bound before all matter was available, including all the maps, portraits, and the plan of Washington; also, the plates are not distributed throughout the work, but rather found together in the first and second volumes. The directions to the binder is also not present, indicating the work was not completed before this copy was bound. A fascinating early state of a notable publication, entirely unsophisticated, with directions for cancels and other printed bibliographical data still present in the margins. The author was prosecuted for sedition as a result of two sermons preached in 1792. He was found guilty and sentenced to two years imprisonment and a fine of £100 for each sermon. He wrote the present work while serving a term in Newgate Prison. It treats the discovery and early settlement of America, the American Revolution, each of the states in the Northeast and South, Northwest Territory, Canada, and settlements in South America and the West Indies. "A digest of more than two dozen contemporary sources, including the works of Adams, Franklin, Jefferson, Belknap, Gordon, Ramsay, and Raynal and census data, state constitutions, and religious tracts" - Gephart. Most of the handsome plates illustrate birds, quadrupeds, and reptiles found in the West Indies. Includes a list of subscribers.
