"According to the Introduction, this book attempts to record over 1,400 of the publications, almost all with exceptions noted, of New London printers from May 1, 1709 through the year 1800. The output of the several presses was surprisingly large because all the printing done between the spring of 1709 and the autumn of 1754 in the Colony of Connecticut was done in New London. Johnson also includes twenty-three British Royal coats-of-arms used on New London printings of colony laws from 1709 to 1775. The appendices include sections on the Rogerenes, newspapers published in New London in the 18th century, election sermons printed in New London, and New London printers and booksellers."

This copy shows the author's name as "Edward Legh". Subsequent editions of the book modified his name to "Edward Leigh". Edward Leigh (1602-1671) was a theologian and early English Puritan. His writings were prolific but he was more of a compiler than writer of original thought. This title appears to have been his first book.

It is in fair to poor condition in its original speckled calf covered boards with ruled borders and tool work on the front and rear boards.

And, the pages at the front and rear of the volume (from 371 on) show a darker stain of approximately 1/3" in depth in the gutter (apparently due to bleeding from the application of the second back stip).

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.

  • A History Of Three Of TheA History Of Three Of TheRoll over Image to expandA History Of Three Of The Judges of King Charles I by Stiles, Ezra, . Hartford: Printed by Elisha Babcock, 1794. First Edition. Good in a full leather contemporary binding over boards with a red leather title block on the spine with gilt text and three gilt rules and vestiges of gilt decorations on the edges of the boards. A 16mo measuring 6 5/8 by 4 inches with the leather worn through on the tips of the boards, and with both boards bowed so that the fore edge of the book is considerably wider than the spine. All of the three fold-out plates are creased and folded improperly, the fore-edge of the title page is ragged with no loss to the printed text, the remnants of a stub between pages 12 and 13 represent a binding error as comparisons of another same date copy reveal there is nothing missing. The full title reads: "A History Of The Three Judges of King Charles I. Major-General Whalley, Major-General Goffe, and Colonel Dixwell: Who, at the Restoration, 1660, Fled to America; And Were secreted and concealed, in Massachusetts and Connecticut, for near Thirty Years. With An Account of Mr. Theophilus Whale, of Narragansett, Supposed to have been also one of the Judges." 357 pages of text including an errata slip which is attached to the last page of text and that is followed by a one page ad noting the size of the book and the size of the type used is in conflict with the proposals which initially described the publication allowing the subscribers to either take the book or not "at their liberty". Illustrated with a frontispiece of the author, Plate I (p.29) is a fold-out map of New Haven and its environs; Plate II (p.77) illustrates two views of "Judges Cave" on top of West Rock in New Haven; Plate III (p.80) is a single page showing street maps of both Guilford and Milford, Connecticut; Plate IV (p.114) is a fold-out map showing both the Connecticut shoreline area; and, the Hadley area of Massachusetts; Plate V (p.126) is a street map of a section of New Haven; Plate VI (p.136) is a fold-out plate showing four head and foot stones; Plate VIII (p.202) is a plan of Hadley, Massachusetts and details of Mr. Russels house; and Plate IX (p.345) shows a map of the western towns of Naraganset Bay in Rhode Island. No copies of this title have been seen containing Plate VII. The prevailing opinion being that no such plate was ever produced for inclusion in the title. (Howes, S-999)

  • Three Years Travels Through The InteriorThree Years Travels Through The InteriorRoll over Image to expandThree Years Travels Through The Interior Parts of North America by Carver, Jonathan, . Boston: David West, 1794. Third American Edition. Recently rebound in full black leather with five raised bands on the spine and with a gilt stamped, red leather spine label. A 16mo measuring 6 11/16 by 3 3/4 inches with repaired title page and general tanning of the pages. 282 of text. Printed in Portsmouth, New Hampshire by Charles Peirce for David West the publisher. This title was first issued in London in 1778. It was not published in the United States until 1784 in Philadelphia with a second edition published in that city in 1789 which edition was reprinted in 1792. We therefore infer this to be a third American edition. (Lee's A Bibliography of Carver's Travels) According to Howes: "Carver penetrated farther into the West than any other English explorer before the Revolution." Although an American (by birth) Carver was not able to get the manuscript of his trip (1766-1768) published in this country. He went to London where it was published. (DAB) The popularity of his book lead to many translations, editions and printings in several countries. (Howes, C-215; Evans, 26745; Sabin, 11185; Lee, p165 to 169; DAB, v II, p552)

  • A System Of The Laws OfA System Of The Laws OfRoll over Image to expandA System Of The Laws Of The State of Connecticut (Volumes I and II) by Swift, Zephaniah, . Windham [Conn.]: Self-published, 1795 & 1796. First Editions. Both volumes have recently been rebound in 1/2 dark brown calf and brown cloth covered boards with gilt text stamping on the spines. Both are small octavos measuring 8" by 5 3/4" with the pages of the text blocks uniformly tanned to only a slight degree. Without dust jackets as they most likely never had jackets. This set was the first American law text. Vol. #2 has the list of subscribers which includes George Washington, John Adams and a number of others in Washington's cabinet, but not Jefferson or Hamilton. (Aaron Burr is listed under one of the New York subscribers.) (Sabin, 94078) Everett Goodwin , whose doctoral dissertation The Magistracy Rediscovered: Connecticut 1636-1818, wrote that Swift's work was "a milestone for several reasons: it was the first comprehensive treatise on American law of any kind. It became a manual of instruction not only in Connecticut, but in much of the frontier region all the way to Ohio. And, most important, it was the first step in Swift's almost singlehanded articulation of a new paradigm for the concept of adjudication in Connecticut." (Collier: The Literature of Connecticut History, p. 165)
