Item Description: Smith, Elder, London, 1874. Decorative Cloth. Book Condition: Very Good. Helen Paterson (Allingham) (illustrator). First Edition. Hardy, Thomas. FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD. In Two Volumes. Twelve wood-engraved Illustrations by Helen Paterson including frontispiece. London: Smith, Elder, 1874. FIRST BOOK EDITION published in November 1874, one of an edition of 1,000 copies. 8vo. This is the Jerome Kern copy (sold Anderson Galleries, New York, 1929) later acquired by famed New York City collector Charles Auchincloss (sold Parke-Bernet, New York, 1961), bookplates of both distinguished collectors in each volume, an ideal provenance. VERY GOOD INDEED in original publisher's green diagonal fine-ribbed cloth, lettered in bright gilt with two vignettes in black on upper covers, original chocolate endpapers. Volume One has some discoloration to the upper spine, the front inner hinge has been partially re-glued, the outer hinge on the lower cover has a thin fingernail split. Volume Two has a little wear to one spine corner but is otherwise in excellent condition. This copy has not been re-cased and there has been no repair or restoration to the spine ends. For the Thomas Hardy collector, a sharp and fresh copy of FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD, Hardy's first success and the seminal work which gave name to his fictional Wessex is cause for celebration; it is nearly as hard to find in acceptable original condition as his notoriously rare anonymous first novel DESPERATE REMEDIES and remains, after nearly a century, the most desired and sought after first edition of all fourteen Hardy novels. There is only one recorded inscribed first edition of Far From The Madding Crowd and precious few auction records for copies of this quality. Neatly housed in a custom clamshell box. Purdy pp. 13-18. Sadleir 1105. Bookseller Inventory # 000990

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

Engraved frontispiece and two plates, two engraved maps of "Australasia" (folding) and ". of the Three Harbours of Botany Bay, Port Jackson, & Brocken Bay."

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. The "Appendix" is an account of the trial of Lieutenant-Colonel George Johnson, charged with mutiny for deposing Captain William Bligh then Governor of the colony, in January 1808, and in Paterson's view provides the "fullest, clearest, and best substantiated account of the present state of the colony of New South Wales."

Item Description: 1790. A Paris, Chez Letellier, 1789-1790. Deux ouvrages reliés en un volume in-8 (131 X 200) basane fauve, double filet doré en place des nerfs, pièce de titre maroquin ocre, tranches mouchetées en rouge (reliure de l'époque) ; (1) f. blanc, titre, (1) f. d'avis préliminaire, 213 pages ; (1) f. blanc, VIII pages (dont faux-titre et titre), 266 pages, (1) f. blanc. Cernes de mouillures claires à certains feuillets, plus marqués aux premiers feuillets du volume. Manque de papier à l'angle inférieur des feuillets 153/154 et 169/170 de l'ouvrage de Tench, avec perte d'une lettre ("e" final de "espac[e]") au second feuillet. Quelques rares rousseurs. Minimes restaurations à la reliure. EDITION ORIGINALE de la traduction française, RARE. Le premier ouvrage est la traduction anglaise par Jean-Henri Castéra de la "Relation de quatre voyages dans le pays des Hottentots et dans la Caffrerie, pendant les années 1777, 1778 et 1779" du botaniste et colonel britannique William PATERSON (1755-1810). Elle contient d'intéressantes descriptions de la flore et de la faune, ainsi que les us et coutumes des Boers, Hottentots et Bushmen qui habitent les zones côtières de l'AFRIQUE DU SUD. « Ces Voyages, écrits par de vrais et courageux voyageurs, nous apprennent des faits ignorés, et nous décrivent des pays où personne n'avait encore pénétré. » (Avis préliminaire). Les pages 200 à 213 sont occupées par un intéressant Appendice sur les poisons animaux et végétaux des régions du continent noir que visita l'auteur : serpents principalement, mais également scorpions et plantes meurtrières. Paterson nous conte à cette occasion, au sujet des méfaits des serpents dans l'Hindoustan, quelques anecdotes dignes du "Kim" de Kipling. Le second ouvrage comprend, en plus de la relation du voyage de Watkin TENCH (1758-1833) à Botany Bay, un aperçu de la découverte de l'Australie et un extrait du voyage de La Pérouse dans cette région. C'est un des PREMIERS RECITS imprimés sur la COLONISATION DE L'AUSTRALIE. Watkin TENCH embarqua en 1787 à bord du navire la "Charlotte" qui transportait des prisonniers pour Botany Bay. Arrivé à destination le 20 janvier 1788, il passa une grande partie de son temps libre à explorer la région. Son récit fut publié pour la première fois en anglais en 1789. (CHADENAT, 4408, pour l'ouvrage de Tench - GAY, 3111, pour l'ouvrage de Paterson - PLESCH, 357-358, pour l'édition anglaise de 1789 de l'ouvrage de Paterson). PLAISANT EXEMPLAIRE, en pleine reliure d'époque. PLEASANT COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST. Bookseller Inventory # 003279
