      [Various places, 1799. Fine. A fine collection of seven contemporary engravings of John Adams, executed from the 1770s to the 1790s.

They are as follows: 1) JOHN ADAMS. [London]: Published by Cadell & Davies, Sept. 14, 1799. 6 x 4 1/4 inches. A stipple engraving by Harding after an original illustration by Taylor. 2) [JOHN ADAMS].

[Np, The Hague? nd, ca. 1782]. 7 1/2 x 4 3/4 inches. An image almost identical to the one immediately above, but with Adams in a rectangular frame, and captioned in Dutch. An olive branch in the lower right corner perhaps symbolizes the treaty Adams negotiated with the Dutch in 1782. 4) HIS EXCELLENCY JOHN ADAMS. [London]: Published by J. Fielding, Sept. 1, 1783. 6 1/2 x 4 inches. The engraving was executed after "an original portrait in the possession of Edmund Jennings, Esq." 5) JOHN ADAMS, L.L.D.

        No. 1. Prosessive Lessons sketched from nature by Laporte.

      London John P Thompson 1799 - Original blue paperjacket with external paper label, jacket worn. Four sheets (57 x 42 cm) with soft-ground etching (Weichgrundätzung) on "J. Whatman 1794" paper; each sheet with a clear border of plate. The thread-stitching was opened to prevent the sheets from further damage. Few foxing, signs of folding and border of waterdamage on the sheets. Please ask for detailes pictures. The drawings are subheaded as follows: 1. Elm in the second & third distance. Alh (Ash?) in the second & third distance, 2. Sand Bank in the second & third distance. Lime stone in the second & third distance, 3. Oak in the second & third distance. Beech in the second & third distance, 4. Cottages in the second & third distance. Barns in the second & third distance. All four sheets have the following subtitel : "London Published May. 25. 1799. by John P. Thompson. Gt. Newport Street. And No. 51. Dean Street. Soho.". Laporte was born 1761 in London, to a French family of Huguenot origins, and studied art under John James Barralet. He became a drawing-master at the Addiscombe Military Seminary, Surrey. He was also a successful private teacher, and Dr. Thomas Monro (patron of J M W Turner), was one of his pupils. From 1785 he contributed landscapes to the Royal Academy and British Institution exhibitions in London, and was an original member of the short-lived society 'The Associated Artists in Watercolours,' from which he retired in 1811. He published: 'Characters of Trees, (1798-1801), 'Progressive Lessons sketched from Nature (1799 - 1805), and 'The Progress of a Water-colour Drawing', and, in conjunction with W F Wells, executed a set of seventy-two etchings, entitled 'A Collection of Prints illustrative of English Scenery, from the Drawings and Sketches of Thomas Gainsborough' (1819). He also painted in oils. Laporte died in London on 8 July 1839, aged 78. Soft-ground etching uses a special soft ground. The artist places a piece of paper over the ground and draws on it. The print resembles a drawing. The process of etching as applied to printmaking is believed to have been invented by Daniel Hopfer (1470-1536) of Augsburg. Lithography shows on the first view an similar effect as soft-ground etching; but the technology of lithography shows no marks of plate border on an sheet of paper. It was introduced in England in 1801 by Senefelder himself. (Philobiblon 1967, 193) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        ARTHUR MERVYN; OR, MEMOIRS OF THE YEAR 1793. By the Author of Wieland; and Ormond, or the Secret Witness ...

      Philadelphia: Printed and Published by H. Maxwell, No. 3, Laetitia Court and Sold by Messrs. T. Dobson, R. Campbell, H. and P. Rice, A. Dickins, and the Principal Booksellers in the Neighbouring States,. 1799. contemporary full leather, red leather title piece affixed to spine panel.. Signature of early owner Joseph Ewing on the title page and free. endpapers. Small chip from lower right margin of leaf B1, several. leaves with small nicks and short tears in lower and fore-edge. margins, several leaves dog-eared, text block with some staining and. scattered foxing throughout, endpapers stain, inner front hinge. reinforced with paper tape. Not a distinguished copy, but a book now. uncommon in the trade. (#153245). First edition. The first part of the second of Brown's four Gothic novels, a non- supernatural study of villainy which contains a remarkably vivid description of the yellow fever epidemic in Philadelphia. Part two of ARTHUR MERVYN (not present here) was published separately in 1800. "Brown's place in literary history is not altogether due to the fact that he was the first American who tried to live by his pen or even that he was the first American novelist who won an international hearing. He continues to be occasionally read for his intrinsic merits -- for the somber intensity which, given a chance with any but superficial readers, outweighs his shambling structure and his verbose, stilted language. Like Poe and Hawthorne, whom he in several respects anticipates, Brown had a personal acquaintance with the dark moods which he enlarged and projected in his novels. He had an eager intellectual curiosity which gives his work, even at its most naïve, a certain air of range and significance." - DAB. BAL 1498. Wright (I) 418. Petter, The Early American Novel, pp. 334- 40; 408-10.

      [London, 1799. Large folio. First volume in black morocco, elaborately tooled in gilt; second volume in dark green calf, also elaborately gilt. Hinges cracked, head and foot of spine worn; extremities rubbed, boards lightly scuffed. Internally fine, with very minor scattered foxing. Contemporary armorial bookplate of the Marquess of Rockingham on front pastedown. In matching blue half morocco clamshell cases, spines gilt. An exhaustive manuscript set of protests lodged by Members of the House of Lords over the period from 1641 to 1799, copied by the clerks in the Parliament Office and bound for Charles Watson-Wentworth, Second Marquess of Rockingham, with his bookplate. Peers had the right to protest decisions reached by Parliament into the journal or formal record of the House's proceedings, simply by signing their names against the record of the decision. Members could also add a protest consisting of a reason or series of reasons for their dissent; the first such protest originated in 1641. Such protests were not published at the time and would not have been available in printed form. This set includes, among other things, protests lodged against the Stamp Act and the Declaratory Act during the period preceding the American Revolution. Charles Watson-Wentworth, Second Marquess of Rockingham (1730-82) had long been a supporter of American rights and played a major role in the independence of the United States. He was Prime Minister first in 1766, and oversaw the repeal of the Stamp Act. His second stint as Prime Minister came in 1782, when he led Parliament in recognizing the independence of the United States at the end of the American Revolution. Rockingham always urged moderation in his government's treatment of the colonies, but nevertheless condemned the Boston Tea Party and other outrages, and in this respect did not differ from the rest of the British establishment during the time. Close connections with prominent British merchants influenced his support of the colonies, which were highly profitable for British trade, when not engaged in open rebellion. He was also the political mentor of Charles James Fox, the leading voice of American sympathy in British debates, and Edmund Burke was his personal secretary and political mouthpiece. Protest against the repeal of the Stamp Act takes up fourteen pages, covering the dissent over the second and third readings of the bill, on March 11 and 17, 1766. Among the reasons given for protesting the repeal in the second reading, the journal states that a bill could have been made to amend the Stamp Act, without repealing it, which the Lords would have considered "with a warm desire of relieving our countrymen in America, from any grievance or hardship; but with proper care to enforce their submission and obedience to the law so amended and to the whole Legislative Authority of Great Britain, without any reserve or distinction whatsoever." Likewise listed as reasons are the irrefutable authority of the power of taxation and the need for Americans to be taxed like all other British subjects, and the obvious ability of the Americans to bear their portion of the tax burden. Another point indicated is that if Americans are given the free trade they desire, the colonies will no longer be of any benefit to Britain, and would in fact be "in the highest degree prejudicial to the commerce and welfare of their Mother Country." The dissent on the third reading opens with the statement: "We think, that the Declaratory Bill we pass'd last week, cannot possibly obviate the growing mischiefs in America where it may seem calculated only to deceive people of Great Britain, by holding forth a delusive and nugatory affirmance of the legislative right of this Kingdom, whilst enacting part of it, does no more than abrogate the resolutions of the House of Representatives in the North American Colonies, which have not in themselves the least colour of authority; and declares that which is apparently and certainly criminal only, null and void." The dissent closes with the statement: "...repeal of this law, under the present circumstances, will we fear not only surrender the honour and essential interests of the Kingdom now and forever both at home and abroad...[but] we in effect annihilate this branch of the legislature and vote ourselves useless; or if by passing this bill, we mean to justify those who in America, and even in Great Britain, have treated a series of British Acts of Parliament, as so many acts of Tyranny and Oppression, which it is scarcely criminal to resist...we shall then give our approbation to an open breach of the first article of that great palladium of our liberties, the Bill of Rights...." The second volume contains numerous dissents related to the conflict with the American colonies, including an eloquent protest directed to the King regarding the imprudence and potential disgrace of hiring foreign mercenaries to fight the colonists. Additionally, protests against ceasing trade with the colonies and the impressment of American seamen. Altogether, a trove of British Parliamentary opinions, with important commentary on the American Revolution, with excellent and significant provenance.

      Philadelphia, 1799. Folio. Contemporary marbled boards, expertly rebacked, retaining the original gilt morocco label. Boards scuffed. An occasional stain or fox mark, light even tanning. Some twenty issues have from 2- to 6-inch tears in the edge or center of the text, resulting in loss. A few issues trimmed close at the upper edge or foredge, with slight loss. Overall, in good condition. A significant assemblage of William Cobbett's important and controversial - but short-lived - daily newspaper, PORCUPINE'S GAZETTE. The numbers in this volume represent about twenty percent of the complete run of the newspaper, which lasted for 770 issues. Cobbett (1763- 1835), the legendarily prolific, controversial (often contradictory), and anti-authoritarian polemicist, often wrote under the pen-name of "Peter Porcupine." In 1796, a few years after he arrived in the United States, he began a monthly periodical called THE POLITICAL CENSOR, which he used to snipe at his political opponents - usually those of a pro-French or Jeffersonian-Republican sentiment. The CENSOR ran until March 1797, when it was replaced with PORCUPINE'S GAZETTE, a daily newspaper. The first issue appeared on March 4, 1797, the day John Adams was inaugurated President, with a subscription base of about one thousand, which more than doubled within a few months. By November 1797, Cobbett was printing 3,000 copies a day. A weekly German-language version was published in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1798 and 1799, and a thrice-weekly edition called THE COUNTRY PORCUPINE also ran in those years. Cobbett used the newspaper to support the Federalist party and to rail against the French and their American supporters during the period of increased tensions between the United States and France generally known as the "Quasi War." His contentious articles thrived in the politically charged atmosphere, though Cobbett often found himself on the receiving end of libel suits. The newspaper is filled with articles on national and local politics, foreign policy, news from Europe, economics, and advertisements for Cobbett's other works. Aside from its tremendous political importance, PORCUPINE'S GAZETTE is also a rich source of information on daily life in Philadelphia, with each issue containing commercial ads and notices, reports of arrivals in the port of Philadelphia, local prices for goods, advertisements for schools and doctors, and much more. The demise of the paper was hastened when Cobbett lost a $5,000 libel judgment brought against him by Dr. Benjamin Rush, whom Cobbett had attacked for Rush's actions during an outbreak of Yellow Fever in Philadelphia. The case was adjudicated by a Pennsylvania judge whom Cobbett had also criticized. Cobbett suspended publication of the GAZETTE in late August 1799, followed by a few weekly issues that fall, and a final New York issue of January 13, 1800. A significant run of an important Federalist-era periodical, produced by one of the most controversial polemicists in American history.

        Illyrine, ou l?écueil de l?inexpérience.

      chez l'Auteur, A Paris 1799 - 3 vol. in-8 de VIII-335 pp. ; 560 pp. ; 397 pp., demi-percaline bleue, pièce de titre en maroquin bordeaux, non rogné (reliure du XIXe siècle). Edition originale très rare. Portrait de l'auteure dessiné et gravé par Canu. Etonnant et singulier ouvrage d'une femme qui offre la version à peine romancée de ses aventures amoureuses pendant la période révolutionnaire. On y trouve les portraits vifs et satiriques de ses amants (Hérault de Séchelles, le général Biron, général Bender, Dumouriez, Fabre d'Eglantine, Espagnac.) dont on a bien plus l'habitude de rencontrer leurs noms dans les manuels d'histoire que dans les récits d'alcôve. Issue d'une riche famille de négociants, Barbe-Suzanne-Amable Giroust a vu le jour à Paris rue Saint-Denis en 1770. Mariée à 14 ans à un avocat de Soissons du nom de Bertrand-Quinquet avec qui elle aura une fille, elle fut très vite délaissée et ira rejoindre son premier amant à Paris. Elle rêve à un divorce impossible et c'est alors qu'elle se décide à envoyer à l'Assemblée Nationale un vibrant plaidoyer en faveur du divorce ; Cette lettre serait à l'origine de la loi autorisant le divorce (1792). Le dix-neuvième siècle l'a jugée immorale et vulgaire ; Charles Monselet dans Les Oubliés et les dédaignés (1857), fut loin de réhabiliter la romancière : « Dans une sphère moins brillante que Madame Tallien, avec un minois coquet et une vocation littéraire plus que douteuse, La Morency apparaît comme l'expression fidèle de la galanterie sous la Terreur et du mauvais style sous le Directoire (.) Il n'y a donc rien d'étonnant à ce que ses romans aient obtenu un succès d'une heure : l'aventurière aura prêté son prestige à la femme de lettres ». Chartes Nodier, dans ses notes du Banquet des Girondins, parle d'elle comme d'« une femme qu'il fallait avoir à souper ». « Fiction romanesque remarquable par la pensée libre de tout préjugé. Suzanne Giroust a donné à son récit la forme de mémoire à la première personne. L'héroïne est une femme émancipée indépendante qui affiche ses conquêtes, parle de sensualité ardente et de ses jouissances avec bonheur. Elle n'éprouve aucun remord, la vertu est pour elle une pure convention sociale. Dans le contexte conservateur du Directoire, le roman a des avancées très originales sur les droits des femmes à la sexualité, à l'amour et sur leur liberté. Les expériences successives lui révèlent son être féminin, sa sensibilité, le désir le plaisir. La liberté sexuelle pour laquelle plaide la romancière, sa remise en cause du mariage et du couple sont un écho de certaines revendications féministes de la Révolution » (Huguette Krief, Vivre libre et écrire : anthologie des romancières de la période 1789-1800. Bon exemplaire non rogné. Le portrait a été remonté ; trace de mouillure à la fin du tome II. Gay, II 637 ; Dictionnaire des oeuvres érotiques, p. 236. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

This very rare map belongs to a never finished project for the atlas of the so called Società Calcografia, a simple commercial trade realized by the two main Venetian publishers of the XVIII century, Antonio Zatta and Giuseppe Antonio Remondini. As already stated, the project was never finished for no atlas containing these maps has ever been listed in any bibliography. Very likely, then, the maps have been sold individually, or maybe as part of smaller, custom collections. The maps of the collection derive from Paolo and Francesco Santini’s plates, used by Remondini in his 1782/4 "Atlas Universelle" and from the plates of Antonio Zatta’s "Nuovo Atlante" published in 1796. Santini’s maps have been beautifully enriched, using the system of small, masked plates which can be perceived through the platemarks on the paper, with great cartouches according to the classical style of Zatta and have been probably engraved by the members of his staff, Pasquali, Zuliani and Pitteri. The cartouches bear very often historical descriptions and maybe the maps have been realized to depict the great geographic changes of the peninsula during the Napoleonic period. In our opinion, the two publishers worked together to the realization of the project until Antonio Zatta died (1804), and the complete atlas was never finished because Giuseppe Antonio Remondini also died in 1811.

Juli 1818 in Paris) hat sich namentlich durch die Schöpfung der darstellenden (deskriptiven) Geometrie verdient gemacht. Er erhielt bereits 1762 in Lyon ein Lehramt und kam dann an die Artillerieschule bei Mézières, wurde 1765 Professor der Mathematik und 1771 der Physik. Nachdem er 1780 in die Akademie der Wissenschaften aufgenommen worden war, übernahm er in Paris die Professur für Hydrodynamik. Als 1792 die Republik ausgerufen wurde, wurde er Marineminister. In dieser Funktion musste er das Todesurteil an König Ludwig XVI. vollstrecken lassen. Einige Monate später legte er sein Amt nieder, da er den vielen konkurrierenden Parteien nicht gerecht werden konnte und trat an die Spitze der Gewehrfabriken, Geschützgießereien und Pulvermühlen der Republik. 1794 begründete er die École Polytechnique in Paris und bekleidete dort die Professur für Mathematik. Napoleon berief Monge als Mitglied der Expedition nach Ägypten, wo er von 1798 bis 1799 das Direktorium des Ägyptischen Instituts übernahm.- Innendeckel mit Bibl.-Schildchen, Titel mit Bibl.-Stempel.

A very good copy with the ownership signature of John Ward of New Road Lincoln> on verso of first sectional title-page. First collected edition: scarce. Not in Watkins [International Masonic Collection, 1723-2011>] which has only an 1848 reprint (#968]. Rev. Jethro Inwood, B.A. was Provincial Grand Chaplain for the county of Kent and curate of St. Paul's Church, Deptford. William Perfect (1731/2-1809), a physician specialising in the treatment of the insane, had a medical practice at West Malling in Kent. 'Grief at the loss of Elizabeth (his wife) seems to have resulted in Perfect's becoming a freemason about 1765, and it was in freemasonry that he obtained his greatest social distinctions. He was promoted to the office of provincial grand orator in 1787, and eight years later became provincial grand master of the county of Kent, an office which he retained until his death.' [Shirley Burgoyne Black in ODNB]. * The printed notice, dated Deptford April 1799, apologises for the printing delay ('occasioned by the slow manner in which the names of subscribers came to hand; not venturing to hazard a large impression in the first instance'), and points out that there are now eleven sermons, not ten as originally promised.

      1799. HAYDN, Joseph.Die Schoepfung ein Oratorium [The Creation an Oratorio].Vienna: T. Mollo, [1799].First edition of ?"The Creation,?" preceding Haydn?'s authorized editions of the score by one year, fully engraved and in a contemporary binding.The first edition of the vocal score of Haydn?'s greatest oratorio was this unauthorized publication, predating the composer?'s own editions of the full score and the vocal score by one year. Haydn?'s oratorio The Creation ?"is a masterwork in the special sense that it has no weak point, nothing that could be changed or omitted?" (New Grove). ?"The text, combining parts of Genesis and Milton?'s Paradise Lost, had originally been prepared by Liddell for Handel. Only because Handel had turned it down was it eventually brought to the attention of Haydn… Haydn seized upon it, for he had always nursed the ambition to write an oratorio in the Handel manner and the text provided him with the necessary stimulus?" (Cross). Haydn feared that the oratorio ?"might be too unusual for his Viennese audiences, but in fact it was an unprecedented success… Perhaps no other piece of great music has ever enjoyed such immediate and universal acceptance.?" ?"Haydn?'s fresh and charming pictures of the wonders of the creation, from the naïve but always impressive ?'And there was LIGHT?' to the glimpses of the leaping tiger and the creeping worm… The two instrumental preludes, including the superbly controlled ?'Representation of Chaos,?' are masterly?" (New Grove).Hoboken xxi.2, 41. RISM, H4634. Fuld, 271. Weinmann (Mollo), 35.Interior generally clean. Some wear and minor worming to spine of contemporary binding. An excellent copy. Rare.

        1799 Isaac Weld Travels Through US & Canada Mount Vernon Colonial Americana MAPS

      London : J. Stockdale, 1799. / 2nd edition - 1799 Isaac Weld Travels Through US & Canada Mount Vernon Colonial Americana MAPS Incredibly Illustrated with 16 BEAUTIFUL Engravings Isaac Weld (1774–1856) was an Irish topographical writer, explorer, and artist. In 1795 he sailed to Philadelphia from Dublin and spent two years travelling in the United States and Canada. He visited Monticello and Mount Vernon and met George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. He journeyed to the United States and Canada partly as an adventure and partly as research into suitable countries for the Irish to emigrate to – ".any part of those territories might be looked forward to as an eligible and agreeable place of abode". He travelled on horseback, by coach and by canoe in Canada with local native guides. He returned in 1797 ".without entertaining the slightest wish to revisit it." He found the Americans to be obsessed with material things and preferred Canada. His published Travels (1799) quickly went into three editions and was translated into French, German, and Dutch. We find this same 2nd edition for sale elsewhere for $1,925. The second edition was published the same year as the 1st, just shortly after the initial success of the first edition. Main author: Isaac Weld Title: Travels through the states of North America and the provinces of Upper and Lower Canada, during the years 1795, 1796, and 1797 second edition Published: London : J. Stockdale, 1799. / 2nd edition Language: English Illustrated contents include, but are not limited to: • Folding map of New England states including Carolinas and Virginias • Folding engraving of Mount Vernon • Natural land bridge • Niagara Falls • View of Bethlehem, a Moravian settlement Weld on slavery: He wrote on slavery “.there will be an end to slavery in the United States [as] negroes will not remain deaf to the inviting call of liberty forever." and Americans in general "civility cannot be purchased from them on any terms; they seem to think that it is incompatible with freedom.". On Washington, DC, he wrote "If the affairs of the United States go on as rapidly as they have done, it will become the grand emporium of the West, and rival in magnitude and splendour the cities of the whole world."

Främre pärmen med en oval handskriven pappersetikett, med Charlotte Elgströms namnteckning. Kraus: RISM K1913 (4 copies). Boer s. 115. Mycket ovanlig utgåva av ouverturen till Æneas i Karthago eller Dido och Æneas. Den publicerades först för pianoforte som bilaga till Musikaliskt tidsfördrif 1791. Denna fristående utgåva för fyra händer är dock betydligt mer ovanlig. Samma år publicerades även en italiensk utgåva av ouverturen i Wien. De svenska nationalsångerna av Ferdinand Ries innehåller bl.a. "Waggvisa", "Skånsk bond-dans", "Qvarndansen". Den är utgiven som opus 52. Ries uppehöll sig en period år 1813 i Sverige, då han efter en tid i Ryssland flytt därifrån undan Napoleons anfall. Han reste dock strax vidare till London. Under vistelsen i Sverige uppträdde han bl.a. med J. F. Berwald. Carl Schwencke (1797-1864) var en tysk tonsättare och pianist, som under flera perioder under 1820-talet var verksam i Sverige. Han skrev många variationer på kända melodier, både från folkvisor och operor

      Schnepfenthal, 28. VIII. 1799. - 4 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Ew. Hochedelgeboren erhalten hier ein Mscpt., welches ich an Sie mit der Anfrage, ob Sie nicht zu dem Verlage desselben geneigt wären, zu schicken mir die Freyheit nehme. Giebt [sic] es gleich der Jugendschriften schon eine große Menge: so glaube ich doch, daß die gegenwärtige nicht überflüßig seyn und einen guten Abgang finden wird, besonders da die pädagogissche Litteratur, wie ich glaube, durch ein die ganze Erziehungslitteratur umfassendes Journal, das GutsMuths mit Anfang des kommenden Jahres herausgiebt, einen neuen Schwung erhalten wird [.]". - Der aus Deutschendorf in Ungarn gebürtige ev. Theologe studierte in Jena bei Fichte, Schelling und Schlegel, unterrichtete anschließend bis 1803 an der Erziehungsanstalt in Schnepfenthal und wechselte 1804 an die protestantische Schule in Wien. "Seit 1806 k. u. k. Konsistorialrat, setzte sich Glatz für eine Verbesserung der kulturellen Verhältnisse in Ungarn sowie für die evang. Kirche in Österreich ein und war 1821 maßgeblich an der Gründung der Evangelisch-Theologischen Lehranstalt in Wien beteiligt. Er verfaßte als Theologe zahlreiche Erbauungsbücher und homiletische Schriften mit zumeist volkserzieherischer Tendenz. Glatz schrieb über hundert Bände für Kinder und Jugendliche, die hohe Auflagen erreichten" (DBE). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

First Edition of the first missionary voyage to the South Pacific. Most of the missionaries were settled on Tahiti, with several others landed at Tonga and the Marquesas. Troubles with the natives arose, and most of the missionaries were forced to seek refuge in Sydney, Australia, while three on Tonga were killed. The mission on Tahiti was re-established in 1815. In addition to Tahiti, Tonga, and the Marquesas, the work contains valuable accounts of the Fiji Islands, Tongatapu, the Gambier Islands, and the discovery of a new group of islands, named the 'Duff Group', among the Santa Cruz Islands. On the outward voyage, the expedition visited Rio de Janeiro, an engraved view of which is included among the plates. The work is also of Australian interest because of a passage mentioning escaped Botany Bay convicts, and the fact that some of the missionaries who fled to Australia eventually settled there and founded families important in Australian history. Another later edition on laid paper with different pagination (4 p.l., c, 395, [1]blank, [12]). was published the same year. Cox II p. 307. Ferguson 301. Hill p. 184.
