[XYZ Affair]
[Philadelphia, 1798. 71pp. Dbd., early stitching still present. Final leaf detached but present, ink signature on first leaf, scattered foxing and toning. Good. Partially unopened. President John Adams' report to Congress on the infamous "XYZ Affair," in which the negotiators for the French government attempted to extort bribes from the American envoys in return for treaty concessions. Largely made up of the reports of the American envoys, including Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, John Marshall, and Elbridge Gerry, providing a blow-by-blow description of the whole sordid affair. First, Mr. X demanded that "a sum of money was required for the pocket of the Directory and ministers, which would be at the disposal of the M. Talleyrand: and that a loan would also be insisted on. Mr. X said, if we acceded to these measures, M. Talleyrand had no doubt that all our differences with France might be accommodated." Mr. Y then advised, "You must pay money, you must pay a great deal of money." The work also includes President Adams' letters credentialing the ministers. Adams asked Congress to keep this document secret while an appropriate response was considered; as such, only 500 copies were printed. Along with the "Genêt Affair," this event was the important Franco- American diplomatic crisis of the 1790s, and served to harden the differences between the two emergent American political parties, the "pro-French" Democratic Republicans, and the "pro-British" Federalists.

Adams, John
[Philadelphia, 1798. 72pp. Dbd. Light even toning. Very good. This message is the second entirely devoted to the troubles of the United States with France, the XYZ Affair, and the naval "Quasi-War." The French government had attempted to extort a bribe from the American envoys Charles Pinckney, John Marshall, and Elbridge Gerry. This news had initially been delivered to Congress on April 3, 1798. The present document, published a month later, further discusses the situation with France. Here, Adams transmits to Congress the correspondence between his three ministers and the French government. They disclaim any hostile American intentions toward France, and insist upon the right and duty of the United States to remain neutral in the European War. The ministers insist that America has been "at peace with all of the belligerent powers," and has treaty obligations to remain so. The American practice of yielding up to British vessels French goods found on American ships in the high seas is defended under international law. The ministers vigorously protest the French practice of seizing American vessels and towing them to French ports, which was one of the central American complaints during the Quasi-War with France. "Excellent documentary coverage of the French-American relations during their undeclared war" - Jenkins. EVANS 34819. ESTC W26156. JENKINS COMPANY, EARLY AMERICAN IMPRINTS I:506.

Eighteenth-century American works are always some of the most desirable pieces of Americana - especially those pertaining to government, politics, and important documents. 'Laws of the State of Vermont' is one such work - a work that covers a multitude of early American legislature. Notably desirous content includes the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States! Some of the laws and topics discussed include: · Criminal laws (Murder, arson, burglary, treason) · Marital laws (Adultery, polygamy, incest) · Societal norms (Sabbath, cursing, drunkenness) · and much more!

Paris: Chez l'auteur, an VI [1798]. Third Edition. 201 x 125 mm. (7 7/8 x 4 7/8"). Four volumes. Third Edition. HANDSOME LATE 19TH CENTURY DARK GREEN MOROCCO, GILT, covers bordered by multiple plain and decorative gilt rules, oblique daisy sprigs at corners, raised bands, spine compartments with central caged-bird ornament surrounded by small tools, curling cornerpieces, gilt titling, turn-ins with decorative roll, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With 27 ANIMATED ENGRAVED PLATES after Marillier, Monsiau, Monnet, Demarne, Dutertre, and Marguerite Gérard. Cohen-de Ricci 660; Ray, "French" 83. Rear boards of two volumes with negligible dark spots, a touch of rubbing to extremities, text lightly pressed at time of binding (but not washed), a couple of plates faintly browned, occasional minor marginal smudges or stains, but still a fine set, clean, crisp, and bright internally, with excellent impressions of the plates, and in sparkling bindings that make a lovely appearance on the shelf. Licentious, sensational, and immediately successful, this trio of novels chronicling the sexual escapades of a young libertine is enhanced here by spirited illustrations that still manage to leave much to the imagination. Originally printed in 1787-90, "Les Amours" is comprised of three separate parts: "Une Année de la Vie du Chevalier de Faublas," "Six Semaines de la Vie du Chevalier de Faublas," and "La Fin des Amours du Chevalier de Faublas." The series follows our young protagonist from the time he is a teenager, relating numerous seductions, affairs with women of all social classes, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Continuing to deploy the popular epistolary form of its predecessor, The Boarding School "promotes improved female education through its depiction of an exemplary boarding school teacher" and remained "equally concerned with the status of women in the early republic" (ANB).

[Napoleon]
1798. Very good condition. An archive of Napoleonic war accounts in American newspapers, reporting important world events from 1798 through to 1857. These vivid contemporary accounts span the entire period of the Napoleonic era. Starting with the 1798 article in a Connecticut newspaper, there is a description of Napoleon's campaign (the Egyptian campaign) and the mystery which surrounded its goal and destination: "Nothing certain is yet known relative to the destination of Buonaparte's (sic) armament .... Never was a political secret more inviolably kept, nor was the curiosity of Europe ever more excited than on this occasion. Among the various destinations assigned by rumor to the expedition, Candia (sic), Cyprus, Constantinople and Alexandria are mentioned ... (See item 1, p3 col. 1). The archive ends with Napoleon's defeat at the Battle of Waterloo and the new balance of power which resulted in Europe. In the December 16, 1818 issue of 'The Morning Chronicle', a letter to the editors remarks on the vast changes in Europe: "After a state of warfare which has lasted above twenty years, and which has entirely changed the face of Europe, the reverses which Bonaparte has experienced, within the last twelvemonth, have at least placed him more on a level with his antagonists in point of power; the terror which attended the prospect of his reducing all Europe to one power, is in a great measure dissipated; his motions are neither so rapid, nor his advantages so decided as they formerly were. ...

Kants Hauptwerke - die drei Critiken - in erster Ausgabe( Three Critiks in First Editions - Kant, Immanuel
Riga Friedrich Hartknoch, ebd.; Berlin und Libau, Lagarde; Königsberg, Nicolovius;, 1781/1788/1790, 1798. Halblederbände im Stile der Zeit mit Rücenschild, einheitlich gebunden, sehr repräsentative Ausgabe. Von herausragender Bedeutung ist in dieser Sammlung die erste Ausgabe der ?Critik der reinen Vernunft?, eines der wichtigsten Werke der Philosophie des Abendlandes überhaupt, in der Kant nicht weniger als eine ?Revolution der Denkungsart? überhaupt in Angriff nahm oder wie Kant schrieb: ?Was sind die Bedingungen der Möglichkeit von Erkenntnis??, denn ?Gedanken ohne Inhalt sind leer, Anschauungen ohne Begriffe sind blind? (ebd. AA III, 75) und ?Die Ordnung und Regelmäßigkeit an den Erscheinungen, die wir Natur nennen, bringen wir selbst hinein, und würden sie auch nicht darin finden können, hätten wir sie nicht, oder die Natur unseres Gemüts ursprünglich hineingelegt? (ebd. AA IV, 92). Nach recht erfolgloser Rezeption dieser ersten Auflage ? Moses Mendelssohn sprach von einem ?Nervensaft verzehrendes Werk? ? folgte eine stark überarbeitete zweite Auflage, die als einzige Grundlage aller weiteren Ausgaben diente. Indes hat nicht jeder Leser diese Überarbeitung als Verbesserung aufgenommen.
