  • Endicott, Charles M.:  Account Of Leslie's Retreat At The North Bridge, On Sunday, Feb'y 26, 1775.  Salem, Mass.: Wm. Ives And Geo. W. Pease, 1856. First Edition. Good in original wraps over a stab-sewn binding. The front and rear wrappers are heavily chipped around their edges and loose from the text block. The sewing thread has parted allowing the individual pages freedom of movement. The verso of the front wrapper provides errata information for page 1 of the text. 47 pages of text which detail the first, near violent, but non-bloody encounter between a regiment of British troops and townspeople from Salem and many surrounding towns. The British were under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel Alexander Leslie whose orders from General Gage were to take the cannon which had been acquired and were being prepared to thwart any British invasion. When Leslie and his 240 men arrived in Salem they were met by an armed and angry crowd. Leslie was prevented from crossing the North River as the townspeople, under the command of Colonel David Mason of the Massachusetts Committee of Public Safety, raised half the drawbridge over the river. Leslie threatened ordering his men to open fire on the men guarding the open bridge. He was advised by locals not to do so as the British would be mowed down to the last man by the townsfolk who surrounded his troops. Foiled in his efforts to capture the cannon, Leslie returned to Boston thus ending the first openly hostile encounter of the American Revolution. It was two months later that the first shots of the Revolution occurred at Concord and Lexington. This account originally appeared in volume 1 of Massachusetts Proceedings in 1856. This copy is an offprint of that account, but given a different title. (Gephart, 5783; Sabin, 22559) There are no book auction records for this title in the past 25 years. This is the original document, not a facsimile, not a print-on-demand creation.

Very good in decorated dark green cloth covered boards with black decorations stamped on the spine and front board and with gilt text stamping on the spine. A small octavo measuring 7 5/8 by 5 inches with an early prior owner's name in ink on the second free end page and at the top edge of the title page. The complete title reads: “Account of Arnold’s Campaign Against Quebec and of the Hardships and Sufferings of that Band of Heroes who Traversed the Wilderness of Maine from Cambridge to the St. Lawrence, in the Autumn of 1775.” The account is written by “one of the survivors.” 198 pages including an index, an appendix, text and one map as the frontispiece. Originally printed in Lancaster in 1812 by William Greer and revised in 1844. Considered by Howes to be a “mildly scarce” book. This printing of the book contains a memoir of John Joseph Henry by his grandson which provides much detail on Henry’s life before and after his involvement with the American army. Henry was from Pennsylvania and joined a company of riflemen under the command of Captain Matthew Smith in 1775 whose intent was to join up with Arnold’s forces in Boston before their march on Quebec through the Maine woods. The trials and privations of this band of approximately 1,000 men was legendary. They arrived at Quebec in November of 1775 and ultimately suffered a major defeat with the loss of General Montgomery, the wounding of Arnold and the capture of Henry who then spent nine months in a Quebec prison.

Very good+ and uniformly tanned mounted on a thin, cardboard stock measuring 11 11/16 by 15 3/4 inches (edge to edge). This map shows the eastern half of Connecticut, the Rhode Island coast as far north as many miles north of Providence, the southeastern portion of Massachusetts including Buzzards Bay and western Marthas Vinebyard and the eastern end of Long Island. According to Thompson's Maps of Connecticut Before The Year 1800, the latitude coordinates are correct, but the longitude coordinate is in error as it would place Connecticut in the mid-Atlantic, an error which appears to come from an earlier British map of the same yea.r This is a map taken from the London publication of The Political Magazine issue of November 30, 1780. Many of the place names, towns and cities are in error from current names. This map illustrates the area of eastern Long Island Sound and Block Island Sound which was blockaded by British Admiral Mariot Arbuthnot to contain part of the French Fleet in Newport which was under the command of Admiral Louis d'Arsac de Ternay.

    Washington, George [James Rivington, Compiler/Editor]:  Epistles Domestic, Confidential, And Official, From General Washington, Written About The Commencement Of The American Contest, When He Entered On The Command Of The Army Of The United States.  New York: James Rivington, 1796. First Edition. Good+ in full, speckled calf covered boards with a gilt on red leather title block on the spine with four double gilt rules on the spine. A small octavo measuring 7 7/8" by 4 1/2" with a 1/2" chip to the leather at the heel of the spine a 1/8" chip to the leather at the head of the spine light rubbing and wear to the edges of the boards. There is an early prior owner's name on the first free end page and a second prior owner's name at the upper edge of the title page. Per Howes, "The first seven letters are Tory forgeries previously printed as Letters from General Washington to several of his friends." As pointed out by Sabin, this copy is unique as it holds the inserted letter from Timothy Pickering which copies President Washington's letter of March 3, 1797 disavowing the forged letters noted above. Secondly, the frontispiece portrait of President Washington is engraved by "L. Hill" instead of an engraving by Rollinson which appears in most copies of this title. Finally, as Evans points out, complete copies of this title should have a blank leaf following page xiv. This copy has the blank leaf. 303 pages of text illustrated with a frontispiece portrait of President Washington. Per Howes, "The first seven letters are Tory forgeries previously printed as Letters from General Washington to several of his friends." Despite these forgeries, Howes considers this title to be "quite scarce". (Howes, W-134; Sabin, 101742; Evans, 30392)
