         Fully manuscript commission document, signed, appointing Enoch Page a "Captain of the Tenth Company, of the Fourth Regiment of Militia in... Province of New Hampshire".

      Nottingham, NH: Twelth day of August, , 1772. Half sheet of laid paper with indistinct watermark of the Royal Arms within garter, surmounted by a crown (79 x 304 mm), papered seal intact, text in a neat clerical hand, signed by Cilley with a flourish. Paper with light browning overall, creases from old vertical median, and trifold horizontal folding, associated splitting neatly repaired some time ago with translucent paper adhesive tape, a few minor edge-splits, but very good. Exemplary pre-Revolutionary War military document, linking two men with extensive service during the period. Joseph Cilley (1734-99) was born in Nottingham, New Hampshire, son of Captain Joseph Cilley of the Isle of Shoals. Cilley served as an officer in the American Revolution and earlier, in 1758 seeing action in the French and Indian Wars as a sergeant on attachment with Rogers' Rangers. Men from the New Hampshire Militia - which was founded in 1680, and had been present at the capture of Louisbourg in 1745 - fought at the Battle of Lake George, the Siege of Fort William Henry, the Siege of Louisbourg (1758), the Battle of Carillon and the fall of Fort Carillon (later Ticonderoga) in 1759, the Battle of the Plains of Abraham and the Battle of Sainte-Foy near Quebec, and at the final capitulation of New France at Montreal. Cilley began his Revolutionary War service at the Battle of Lexington. In 1777 he was appointed lieutenant-colonel in the 1st New Hampshire Regiment which, under his command, fought in numerous significant engagements including Trenton, Princeton, Monmouth, and Stony Point, and through the Saratoga Campaign. In 1779 Cilley was with Clinton-Sullivan Campaign against the Six Nations in the western New York, in the same year being voted a pair of pistols by the New Hampshire Assembly "as a token of this State's good intention to reward merit in a brave officer". Following the war, in 1786 he was appointed major general of the 1st Division New Hampshire Militia, commanding the troops that put down the Paper Money Riot in Essex, NH, later that year. Cilley was elected to the New Hamshire senate, and was one of the founders of the Society of the Cincinnati in New Hampshire, serving variously as treasurer, vice-president, and president. The recipient Enoch Page (1742-1832), was Cilley's brother-in-law, being married to his sister Alice. During the Revolutionary War he was a first lieutenant in Captain Ballard's Company of Colonel Frye's Regiment, Cambridge, 14 July - 6 October, 1775, and subsequently a captain commanding a company in Col. Senter's Regment at Rhode Island, August-December, 1777. A highly attractive piece, we have been unable to trace any other documentary material from Cilley on the market.

         Esprit de Leibnitz ou recueil de pensées choisies, sur la religion, la morale, l'histoire, la philosophie, etc., extraites de toutes ses ¿uvres latines et françaises

      Jean-Marie Bruyset, Lyon 1772 - 2 vol. in-12 XLVIII-463 pp. et 2 548 pp.- (5) Édition originale, plein veau marbré, dos à cinq nerfs ornés légèrement frottés, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge sur le premier volume, tranches marbrées. Travail d'insecte au niveau des mors des deux volumes (principalement sur le second), légers manques au niveau des coiffes et sur le premier plat du second volume. Intérieur en bon état. Selon la notice biographique d'Emery dans le Dictionnaire de Michaud : « L'auteur se proposa de réunir tout ce que Leibnitz avait écrit sur la religion. Affligé de l'esprit de son siècle, il voulait le ramener à la religion par une grande autorité, et lui prouver que l'incrédulité n'était pas, comme on s'en vantait, le partage de toute tête pensante, et qu'on pouvait y opposer philosophe à philosophe. Il rapporte en effet une foule de passages qui montrent combien Leibnitz était attaché à la révélation, et combien il était même instruit dans la théologie proprement dite. » [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      1772 1772 - Copenhagen: Nicolaus Möller 1772. With titlevignette, vignette, 24 copperplates, genealogical table and 1 large folding map. XLVII + [3] + 431 + [1] pp. Well-preserved copy with wide margin and yellow edges bound in contemporary halfleather with coloured label and golddecorations on spine. Binding weakly marked of use. * Carsten Niebuhr was a student at the University of Göttingen. Professor J.H. Michaëlis, employed there, recommended Niebuhr to J.H.E. Bernstorff who in cooporation with the Danish government was planning an expedition to Arabia. Michaëlis regarded Niebuhr as very qualified for the task of participating as astronomer and natural historian. On the 7th of January 1761 the members of the expedition took off. They included Niebuhr, the philologist F.V. von Haven, the Swedish natural scientist Peter Forskål, the doctor C.C. Kramer and the engraver Baurenfeind. The first stop was Istanbul where they stayed for a long while before sailing to Alexandria where they stayed for nearly one year. During the stay in Egypt they made important archeologic, geographic and natural historic investigations there and on Sinai. On the 29th December 1762 they arrived in Djedda. In May 1763 F.V. von Haven and Peter Forskål died from exhaustion caused by travel complications and the unfamiliar climate. Niebuhr became leader of the expedition. During the following eight months Niebuhr traveled through Yemen, being the first European in that area. In order to survive and to protect the collected items, the party had to leave Mekka and move on to Bombay. Baurenfeind died on the way and Kramer soon after. After 14 months in Bombay Niebuhr started his journey back. On the way he visited the ruined town Persepolis where he made drawings of the most important relics and copied cuneiforms. In November he finally reached Denmark, being the only surviving member of the Arabic expedition. His copied cuneiforms were studied by Rasmus Rask and other philologists when deciphering the cuneiform alphabet.

         The Natural History of the Tea-Tree, with Observations on the Medical Qualities of Tea, and Effects of Tea-drinking

      London: printed for Edward and Charles Dilly, 1772. 4to. viii, 64pp., plus hand-coloured engraved plate illustrating the tea plant. Expertly bound to style in half period russia and marbled paper covered boards, spine with raised bands, red morocco lettering pieceFirst edition, complete with the hand coloured frontispiece.The Natural History of the Tea-Treeis actually a translation and expansion of Lettsom's Latin doctoral dissertation entitled "Observationes ad vires Theae pertinentes" (M.D., Leyden, 1769) and contains an accurate botanical description of the plant, about which Linnaeus, in a complimentary letter, allowed himself corrected. Lettsom, a physician of great learning, discusses the varieties and methods of curing and preparing tea in China and Japan. He astutely points out that "It is indeed probable that the North American summers in the same latitude with Pekin[g], would suit ...Tree better than ours [in England]." In the second part of this work Lettsom deals extensively with the history of medicinal uses of tea.The lovely hand coloured frontispiece was painted and engraved by J. Miller after a drawing in the possession of Dr. Fothergill of a flowering specimen at Sion-House.Wellcome III 504; Nissen BBI 1182; Henry 966.

         Religious Fresco - Last Supper

      Rome 1772 - This impressive large folio, copper-plate engraving comes from Logge di Rafaele nel Vaticano, published in Rome between 1772 and 1777. Plates from this work are after the elaborate paintings found in the Vatican by Raphael (Rafaello) Sanzio d’Urbino, one of the most inspiring of Italian High Renaissance artists. During the early 1500s, Urbino spent his days in the Vatican decorating the pilasters found on the main floor of the interior apartments. Logge was one of the earliest works to show the interior design of the Vatican. Each plate was engraved by Giovanni Ottoviani after Gaetano Savorelli (painter), Ludovico Teseo (draughtsman), and Pietro Camporesi (architect). This plate has recently-applied professional opaque coloring, painted in a manner similar to the style of the late 1700s. Vibrant, strong colors were used making this engraving an astonishing work of art. Logge, as it was originally published, contained 28 plates with the intention of them being integrated into 14 larger plates. The resulting combination is being offered here. --- Please review the image carefully for condition and contact us with any questions. The work is in very good to excellent condition overall. Some minor imperfections due to age are to be expected, and most imperfections (if present) can be noted in the picture. There is generally some very light foxing or smudging in the margins which does not affect the overall quality. The engravings are quite large and our current photography set up didn't allow for all of the edges in some of the pictures.

         Der erste und wichtigste Aufstand der Strelitzen in Moskau im Jahre 1682 im Maymonate. Aus dem Russischen übersetzt von (Christian Gottlieb von Arndt).

      Riga, Hartknoch, 1772 - 88 S. Erste deutsche Ausgabe der "Pervyj i glavnyj Streleckij bunt" von Aleksandr. P. Sumarokov (1717 - 1777), sehr selten. - Höchst seltene und interessante historische Studie des wichtigsten russischen Dramatikers und Literaten des 18. Jahrhunderts Aleksandr Petrovic Sumarokov über den ersten Aufstand der Strelitzen, erstmals 1768 auf Russisch erschienen. Die Übersetzung erfolgte vom deutschen Historiker Christian Gottlieb von Arndt (1743 - 1829) der ab 1772 unter Zarin Katharina der Großen mit der Leitung des Postwesens betraut war. Aleksandr Sumarokov behandelt den Aufstand der Strelitzen aus Sicht der Anhänger Peter des Grossen und in scharfer Gegnerschaft zu Zarin Soija - "Die sich gegenüberstehenden Parteien waren die Familien der beiden Gemahlinnen Alexeis Maria Miloslawskaja († 1669) und Natalja Naryschkina und die mit ihnen verbündeten Bojaren. Als Fjodor III., Sohn der ersten Ehefrau Alexeis Maria, am 27. April 1682 gerade 20-jährig starb, hinterließ er keinen überlebenden Erben. Ihm folgte als nächster in der Thronfolge sein einziger überlebender leiblicher Bruder, der als kränklich geltende 15-jährige Iwan. Die Familie der Naryschkina versuchte dagegen Iwans Halbbruder, den 9-jährigen Peter, als Thronfolger durchzusetzen. Sie bedienten sich dazu des Patriarchen Joachim, der Peter zum Thronfolger erklärte. Da beide Söhne noch unmündig waren, übernahm zunächst die Zarenwitwe Natalja die Regentschaft. Der Aufstand der Strelizen brach im Mai 1682 aus, als sich in den Straßen Moskaus die Nachricht verbreitete, der rechtmäßige Thronfolger Iwan solle vom Naryschkin-Clan umgebracht werden. Zuvor hatte es bereits geheißen, Fjodor sei einer Intrige des Clans zum Opfer gefallen. Die Strelizen-Regimenter brachen daraufhin in den Kreml ein und verlangten, den Thronfolger vorgezeigt zu bekommen. Obwohl sie zunächst beruhigt werden konnten, brachten sie mehrere mit den Naryschkins verbündete Minister um, darunter Artamon Matwejew, Michail Dolgorukow und Grigori Romodanowski. Wenige Tage später stürmten sie erneut in den Kreml und ermordeten vor den Augen des jungen Peter mehrere Verwandte der Naryschkina, darunter ihre Brüder Kyrill und Iwan. Als aber der Patriarch Joachim persönlich vor die Strelizen trat, wagten diese es nicht ihn anzugreifen. Joachim und Sophia offenbarten, dass Iwan am Leben sei und in Wahrheit niemand ihm nach dem Leben trachte, worauf er auch den Aufständischen gezeigt wurde und diese beruhigt werden konnten. Als Ergebnis des Aufstands wurde Iwans ältere Schwester Sofia als Regentin eingesetzt und Iwan als erster Thronfolger bestätigt, während Peter (d. i. der spätere Zar Peter der Grosse) zum Mitzaren erklärt wurde" (Wikipedia Abruf vom 08.06.2017) - Gebräunt.
