Item Description: [Np]. March 13, 1795., 1795. [1]p. plus integral docketing leaf. Small quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old folds. Minor soiling. Narrow strip of later paper attached to left edge. Very good. In a brown half morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. A significant memorandum signed by several important Revolutionary- era figures, including William Paterson and Henry Knox, concerning a joint venture to investigate copper mines in the Great Lakes region on the so- called Carver Grant. Many public figures in the founding days of the United States dabbled in land speculation and other similar ventures. This group of eminent Americans was apparently involved with the Carver Grant, a land grant totaling hundreds of square miles located in western Wisconsin and in Minnesota (including the present- day location of Saint Paul), which was supposedly given to explorer Jonathan Carver by two local Sioux chiefs in 1767. For several decades after Carver's death his heirs and various others tried to capitalize on the grant by petitioning the United States Congress to recognize its validity, and by selling and reselling lands in the region. Jonathan Carver (1710-80) was born in Weymouth, Massachusetts, raised in Connecticut, and spent most of his adult years in western Massachusetts. He distinguished himself through his service in the French and Indian War, and in 1766-67 undertook to explore Great Britain's newly-won lands around the Upper Mississippi River, partly with a mind to seeking a route to the Pacific Ocean. Carver spent the 1770s in London, petitioning the Crown for compensation for his explorations and seeking to publish the journal of his travels. Carver's TRAVELS THROUGH THE INTERIOR PARTS OF NORTH AMERICA was published in London in 1778 and was immediately popular, appearing in several editions. Despite this, Carver died penniless in London in 1780. In 1781 a "third edition" of Carver's TRAVELS appeared, issued by Dr. John Lettsom, a benefactor of Carver's British widow. In that edition, as part of biographical material on Jonathan Carver, the text of a deed dated May 1, 1767 was published for the first time, in which Carver was apparently given hundreds of miles of land in Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Over the next several decades Carver's heirs in the United States and England, as well as dozens of others who bought and tried to sell land in the grant area, worked to prove the validity of the grant and to profit from the sales. Congress was petitioned to validate the grant, the heirs of the Sioux chiefs were appealed to, and various schemes were developed by Samuel Harrison of Vermont, the Rev. Samuel Peters, and others, to sell and resell the land. The decades-long tale of the Carver Grant is best told by Milo Quaife and John Parker in the references cited below. The present document reads: "Memorandum that we whose names are hereunto subscribed do covenant, promise and agree with each other to use our separate and joint interest in obtaining a right of preemption for the lands mentioned in a book known by the title of Carver's TRAVELS and where he mentions having seen vast quantities of virgin copper and we further covenant with each other that we will become equally concerned in the above undertaking both in profit and loss. Witness our hands this thirteenth day of March and year seventeen hundred and ninety five. [signed] Benj. Henfrey / Wm. Paterson / H. Knox / W. Macpherson / Anthy. W. White / James chambers." The docketing on the second leaf contains a list of "parties to the within articles respecting the exploring the country on Lake Superior, &c," and the list includes Knox, Paterson, Alexander Hamilton, New Jersey Governor Richard Howell, and six others, plus "if approved by him, His Excellency the Honble. Major General [Anthony] Wayne." Hamilton at this point had been a private citizen for six weeks, having retired as Secretary of the Treasury on Jan. 31, 1795. The document is signed by William Paterson, a signer of the Constitution, U. Bookseller Inventory # WRCAM 42952

Item Description: Hard cover. Which will be sold by Auction, by Sam. Paterson, at his Great Room, in King-Street, Covent-Garden, London, on Monday, May 8, 1786, and the Thirty-Five following Days xii, 476 pp. 8vo, attractive antique half-calf & speckled boards (first three leaves somewhat foxed), spine gilt, red & green leather lettering pieces on spine. London: 1786. Samuel Paterson (1728-1802), was one of London’s most important auctioneers of the second half of the 18th century; an innovator, he was the earliest auctioneer to sell books singly in lots. He produced catalogues for a series of notable sales, including the libraries of Sylvanus Morgan (1759), Robert Nelson (1760), James Parsons (1769), James West (1773), William Fletewode (1774), E. Rowe Mores (1779), Topham Beauclerk (1781), George Costard (1782), Thomas Crofts (1783), Maffeo Pinelli (1789), and John Strange (1801). He also was one of the first English dealers to purchase large quantities of books on the Continent and bring them back to London for auction under his own name. The present catalogue is the most important example of his importing activities; it describes 8001 items. "His series of catalogues established him as a pioneer in the book auction trade. Each was arranged in a single alphabet by author and not broken down by book format, as was the usual custom. They were classified catalogues, the arrangement being set out at the beginning as an ordo venditionis (‘order of sale’). Normally Paterson would begin with books on the history of language, and proceed through bibliography (an early use of the word, with its modern meaning, in an English context) and the history of libraries, theology, classical authors, modern languages, philosophy, science and medicine, history, geography and travel, and end with local topography. He would follow this with a capita generalia, which gave more detail for each class. The Bibliotheca universalis selecta also contained an index of authors and editors, possibly the first English auction catalogue to contain such a feature."–O.D.N.B. The catalogue contains a fine and large section of bibliography and book catalogues. Very nice copy. ? Pollard & Ehrman, p. 245. Bookseller Inventory # JHABES2404

Based on earlier accounts of the colony, and in particular David Collins' "An Account of the English Colony in New South Wales", 1798, which included one of the maps and all of the plates in Paterson's book.
