        East Hampton Long Island Indenture between Native Americans and inhabitants of East Hampton for the sale of the "neck of land called Montaquit" for the consideration of one hundred pounds sterling

      Very good overall. A circa 1800 copy of the original indenture for the purchase of "Montaquit" or Montauk dated August 1, 1660 between native Americans "the old sachem squa late wife of Waiandanoe and her son Wisscombone, Toquaton, Mussuquot, Yourke and gentleman the true and lawful Proprietors of the neck of land commonly Known by the name of Montaquit on the Eastern end of Long Island the one side, and Mr. Thomas Baker, Mr. Robert Rouce (Rouse), Mr. Thomas James, Lyon Gardiner, John Mufford (sic) John Hand and Benjamin Price of the plantation of East Hampton". The indenture describes the location of the land as follows: "the aforesaid neck of land called Montaquit with all and every part and parcel thereof from sea to sea from the utmost end of the land aforesaid to the sea side unto the utmost end of the said land westward adjoined to the [Rouces?] of East Hampton aforesaid ..." Waiandanoe (also called Waiandance and Wyandanch) was a sachem born around 1620 in Montauk who became the main "alliance chief", one who maintains friendly relations between his tribe and the local colonists. The Long Island colonists gradually granted him significant financial and military support which was helpful in his ongoing struggles with the Mohegans and Niantics. In the 1650s Waiandanoe was in the midst of a fight with Ninigret, the sachem of the Niantics, in which his (Waiandanoe's) daughter was held captive; Lion (Lyon) Gardiner of this indenture was instrumental in acting as intermediary in payment of the ransom for her. In 1659 Waiandanoe appointed Gardiner as guardian to his young son Wyancombone; perhaps this is the son referred to in this indenture as Wisscombone. Lion Gardiner (1599 - 1663) is known as one of the earliest English settlers of Long Island. Gardiner and Waiandanoe developed a long standing relationship on Long Island. Gardiner was a military engineer first hired to fortify the colony of Connecticut; he completed and commanded Saybrook Fort during the Pequot War. Gardiner settled the island now known as Gardiner's Island as a proprietary colony in 1639; according to some reports Gardiner also purchased the island from the Montaukett Indians (Waiandanoe) because of Gardiner's intercession in paying the ransom for Waiandanoe's daughter. Gardiner's royal patent to his island allowed him to "possess the land forever"; since 1639 it has been privately owned by Gardiner family descendants and is the only US property still held by royal grant from the British crown. Docketed on back, “Montauk Indians to Thomas James, Robert Bond, & others/ Deed "Copy" Dated 1st Aug 1660 of all Montauk for L100 sterling." Folio, written on two sides, three original folds. Some contemporary cracking of the fold lines. 8 x 13".

      [Philadelphia. 1800].. [Philadelphia. 1800].. [3]p. on a single folded folio sheet. Docketed in ink on the verso. Folio. Old folds. Closed split along the horizontal portion of the center cross- fold, but not affecting text. Very good. Rare congressional act extending the suspension of trade with France during the so-called "Quasi-War" of the late 1790s, further tightening the ban on French ships seeking to enter American ports, and clarifying the status of Hispaniola, which was in the process of coming under the control of Toussaint L'Ouverture. This act was approved February 27, 1800, and extends and expands the provisions of the law first approved June 13, 1798 and furthered in 1799. It is signed in type at the conclusion by President Adams, Vice-President Jefferson, and Speaker of the House Theodore Sedgwick. The Quasi-War was an undeclared conflict between the United States and France during the Adams administration in the late 1790s, manifested mostly in naval engagements between the two nations. The war was the outgrowth of deteriorating Franco-American relations, which had been weakened earlier in the decade by the "Genet Affair" and the "XYZ Affair," and it wreaked havoc on commerce between the two nations. One of the main weapons wielded by Adams was to ban American commerce from France and French dependencies, accomplished by the congressional act of 1798. That law was extended by an act of 1799, which also permitted United States navy vessels to inspect and potentially seize American vessels that have traded with France or with French dependencies. This 1800 extension of the law adds further provisions to the previous two acts, allowing French ships coming into American ports to be seized. It also declares that "the whole island of Hispaniola shall for the purposes of this act be considered as a dependency of the French Republic." Hispaniola was in a terrible state of upheaval in 1800, as the former slave, Toussaint L'Ouverture, was consolidating his power throughout the island and expelling or killing the former French rulers.

Featuring additional engraved titlepages and 5 other engraved plates. Complete in two volumes. James Kenneth Ridley (17361765) was an English author. He is mainly remembered for his Oriental pastiche Tales of the Genii, a set of stories based on those of the Arabian Nights. The work, firstpublished in two volumes in 1764, was issued under the pen name 'Sir Charles Morell', supposedly British Ambassador at Bombay. Ridley's Tales were allegedly composed by an imam named Horam and translated from a Persian manuscript; in actuality, they were products of Ridley's imagination. The Tales belong to a genre of imitation Orientalia popular in the eighteenh century; in its own time and after, Ridley's book was compared to Samuel Johnson's Rasselas. Ridley's compilation was popular, and went through seven editions by 1861; German and French translations also appeared. Condition: In the original full tree calf bindings. Externally, some rubbing to the extremities. Jointstender butstill reasonablyfirm. Internally, generally firmly bound although pp. 15-22 of Volume I are working loose and one plate of Volume II is detached but present. Some scattered light foxing.

        The Farmer's Boy; A Rural Poem and Rural Tales, Ballads and Songs

      02 - London - T. Bensley, 1800. 02 - London - T. Bensley, 1800 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. An illustratedcollection of Bloomfield's poetry, in a fine binding. The Farmer's Boy is a second edition and Rural Tales is a first edition. The Farmer's Boy features an engraved portrait frontispiece. Contains numerous vignettes. Robert Bloomfield (December 3 1766 August 19 1823) was an English labouring class poet. 'The Farmer's Boy' was the poem which made Bloomfield's reputation. The manuscript was declined by several publishers and was eventually shown by his brother George to Capel Lofft, a radical Suffolk squire of literary tastes, who arranged for its publication with woodcuts by Thomas Bewick in 1800. The success of the poem was remarkable, over 25,000 copies being sold in the next two years. The poem was particularly admired by the Suffolk-born painter John Constable who used couplets from it as tags to two paintings. Bloomfield's reputation was increased by the appearance of his Rural Tales (1802), several poems of which were set to music by his brother Isaac. Another of them, 'The Miller's Maid', was made intoan opera by John Davy (17631824) in 1804 and formed the basis for a two-act melodrama by John Faucit Saville (18071855) in 1821.

        L'Homme des champs, ou les Georgiques francaises

      Strasbourg - de l'Imprimerie de Levrault, 1800. Strasbourg - de l'Imprimerie de Levrault, 1800 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A first edition of thistranslation of Virgil's epic poem The Georgics, from French poet and translator Jacques Delille. Published whilst the author was in Switzerland, having fled France after the Revolution. The Georgics is a poem in four books, likely published in 29 BC. It is the second major work by the Latin poet Virgil, following his Eclogues and preceding the Aeneid. It is a poem that draws on many prior sources and influenced many later authors from antiquity to the present. As its name suggests (Georgica, from the Greek) the subject of the poem is agriculture; but far from being an example of peaceful rural poetry, it is a work characterized by tensions in both theme and purpose. With frontispiece engraving. In French. With an armorial ecclesiastical bookplate bearing the motto 'Honi soit qui mal y pense' to front pastedown. Condition: In a full calf binding. Externally sound, with some marks to the boards and and some wear to the corners and the head and tail of the spine. Front joint cracked, with rear joint starting. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright, with just some scattered light spotting throughout. Overall: GOOD..

        The Life ofLorenzo De' Medici, Called the Magnificent

      London - A. Strahan et al, 1800. London - A. Strahan et al, 1800 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The Life ofLorenzo De' Medici, Called the Magnificent by William Roscoe with a portrait of Medici to frontispiece to volume one, and illustrated with a further fifteen engravings of portraits andmedallions to titles,to head of each chapter andlast pages. [All present. ]In three volumes complete. Fourth edition, corrected. In English and Italian. Biography in ten chapters to first two volumes, to third volume the poetry of Medici in Italian, with an index to front, eighty-five appendices,a list of illustrationsand an index to rear. William Roscoe (1753 - 1831), was an English historian and miscellaneous writer, perhaps best known today as an early abolitionist, and for his poem for children the Butterfly's Ball. Meanwhile he had pursued his Italian studies, and had carried out research, which resulted in his Life of Lorenzo de' Medici, which appeared in 1796, and gained him a reputation among contemporary historians. It was often reprinted, and translations in French, German and other languages show that its popularity was not confined to Britain. Angelo Fabroni, who had intended to translate his own Latin life of Lorenzo, abandoned the idea and persuaded Gaetano Mecherini to undertake an Italian version of Roscoe's work. Lorenzo de' Medici (1449 - 1492) was an Italian statesman and de facto ruler of the Florentine Republicduring the Italian Renaissance. Known as Lorenzo the Magnificentby contemporary Florentines, he was a diplomat, politician and patron of scholars, artists, and poets. Perhaps what he is most known for is his contribution to the art world, giving large amounts of money to artists so they could create master works of art. His life coincided with the high point of the early Italian Renaissance; his death marked the end of the Golden Age of Florence. Condition: In half calf bindings. Externally, generally sound some wear to extremities, rubbedand with loss in places to paper to boards. Two boards held by cords only and three joints starting. Internally, text block firmly bound, front free endpaper to volume one loosening. Bright but with occasional spotting, mostly to endpapers and first few pages, background foxing and tidemarksto frontispieceand offsetting to titles from frontispieceandslight handling marks.

        Voyage de Dimo et Nicolo Stephanopoli en Grece pendant les annees 1797 et 1798. 2 volumes.

      Paris, Guilleminet, 1800 (an VIII).. circa 22,4 x 15 cm. XVI, 303 pp.; 2 ff., 319 pp., 8 (2 folding) engraved plates Half-calf around 1850 with two labels to spine. Blackmer 1606; Weber II, 642. Second printing in the year of the first edition, but now with the real printer instead of the fictional "Londres". The two Stephanopoli, uncle and nephew, of distant Greek origin but born in Corsica, were about to explore plants in Greece when they got introduced to Napoleon and asked to act as intermediaries between the French and the Maniot leaders in Greece. "Dimo und Nicolo Stephanopoli, Nachkommen einer nach Korsika emigrierten griechischen Familie aus Mani, reisten 1797-98 als Agenten Bonapartes auf die Ionischen Inseln, auf die Peloponnes und nach Kythera. Ihr Auftrag bestand darin, Informationen über diese Gebiete zu sammeln, die Bereitschaft ihrer Bewohner, gegen die osmanischen Herrschaft zu revoltieren, zu sondieren und durch das Versprechen von französischer Hilfe im Fall einer griechischen Revolution eine günstige Stimmung gegenüber Frankreich zu propagieren, das zu dieser Zeit seinen Einfluss im ostlichen Mittelmeerraum zu festigen versuchte." (Chatzipanagioti-Sangmeister 1067). - The folding plates show views of Gyrthion and Kythira. - Minor browning, small label to firt endpaper, bindings a little rubbed, slightly bumped, one hinge with some cracking, but solid.
