Eustace, J. S
Traité d'amitié, de commerce, et de navigation entre Sa Majesté britannique et les États-Unis d'Amérique. Finalement ratifié par la législature américaine, suivi d'un projet fraternel, addressé aux négocians français, pour effectuer la compensation des pertes occasionnées par les lois américaines, pendant leur commerce dans les États-Unis
chez Desenne, 1796. First French edition, 8vo, pp. [5], 6-68; self-wrappers, uncut and unopened, stitched, as issued; title a little dusty, else very good. Not found in Sabin or Howes. Contains the full text of the Treaty of Amity, Commerce, and Navigation, between his Britannic Majesty and the United States of America [i.e., the Jay Treaty] which was conditionally ratified by the U.S. Senate June 24, 1795. The Jay Treaty adjusted a number of thorny matters which grew out of the Peace Treaty of 1783, including several on America's northern frontier, especially boundary gaps and the failure to evacuate frontier forts. In the treaty Great Britain agreed to evacuate the frontier forts by 1796 and two mixed boundary commissions were set up. The Jay Treaty thus helped avert another war with Great Britain, and perhaps more significantly, established the principle of international arbitration.
