Norman MacDougall in his work, James III a political history (p. 289-291), suggests that the aim of this pamphlet was to criticize Sir Robert Walpole and his government, and can be interpreted as a covert attack on the current prime minister. There is a comma after "force" on p. 42, line 8. 1/2 leather over cloth, slightly rubbed. Remaining in v. good condition for its age

Paperback. [John Almon] 5th Edition. 4to. 51pp. Without the half-title. Rebound in morocco backed marbled boards, v. good condition. Seemingly the first tract to publicly announce Jenkinson's infatuation with an eighteen year girl thirty-six years his junior. John Almon, a successful bookseller and journalist, retired in 1781 after selling his business to John Debrett. His retirement was short-lived and he returned to publishing and journalism three years later. The present tract, much of it concerning America, was first published the same year. Interestingly Almon refers to Jenkinson's .amorous daliance after Miss A. It was no doubt ludicrous to see a tall thin old man of 54, over head and ears in love with a girl of 18. As yet we can find no other contemporary reference to this affair. Not in Sabin

Hardcover. 'To which is added, an adventure in the Champs Elises, near Paris; also an interesting account of the unfortunate disaster which befel Monsieur Pilatre de Rozier at Boulogne; with a translation of the elegant eulogium upon him, by the Marquis de Maisonfort: With abstracts from the registers of the Parliament of Paris; Containing a year's list of Criminals Sentenced at Paris; With the nature of their crimes and punishments; translated from his French." Original calf, at sometime well re-backed. Red block label, gilt cross bands. Edges a little rubbed, else a very nice copy. Minor stain to top outer margin of first few leaves, small library stamp to f.e.p. Pilatre de Rozier was the first human to ascend in a balloon, a feat he accomplished in 1783. In 1785 he determined to cross the channel from Boulogne to England in a balloon built and owned by Romaine, who was his companion. In June he deemed conditions to be right for the ascent and crossing, but many thought the place of departure inappropriate. The balloon ascended and stayed aloft for about half an hour before it caught fire, blew up and fell to earth. The description of the state of the two bodies is somewhat gruesome. Extremely scarce, as few as two recorded copies in Ireland and Britain

Hardcover. 406pp. Published 1638. Contemporary calf. Neatly re-hinged, a very good copy. The letters were originally published, in French, in 1624 and met with an extraordinary reception for their eloquence. Such was his reputation that any man who wished to be deemed a man of wit and letters wrote to him for the sole purpose of obtaining a reply. Sometimes he would need to reply to fifty or more at a time, a task which caused him much harassment. In the opinion of Voltaire he was the first person to give harmony and number to French prose.
