BOUDINOT, Elias
The Age of Revelation. Or the Age of Reason Shewn to Be an Age of Infidelity
Philadelphia, Asbury Dickins, 1801. First Edition. Hardcover. Contemporary sheep leather (5-1/8" x 8-1/2"); [ii], 232, [2] pages. Complete with half-title and errata. INSCRIBED by the author on the front endpaper: "Presented to the Library of Harvard College by the Author." An answer to Thomas Paine by a distinguished New Jersey statesman who at the time was the second director of the U.S. Mint (1795-1805). Elias Boudinot, an American revolutionary statesman serving as commissary-general of prisoners and colonel in the continental army (he was with George Washington at Valley Forge), as well as president (1782-1783) and secretary for foreign affairs of the Continental Congress, signed the treaties of peace with Great Britain and of alliance with the French king. He also helped ratify the United States Constitution in New Jersey and conducted Washington into New York for the first inauguration. He was a member of the House of Representatives and the first counsellor named by the United States Supreme Court. Boudinot was also a trustee and benefactor of Princeton University and a founder and first president of the American Bible Society. This is one of his two best known books, the other being A STAR IN THE WEST, OR A HUMBLE ATTEMPT TO DISCOVER THE LONG LOST TEN TRIBES OF ISRAEL (1816), an attempt to prove that the American Indians may be the lost tribes. Books signed by him are quite scarce. A note in a 1924 description for the sale of this title by Anderson Galleries states: "Very rare. Not in Sabin and apparently no record of sale at Auction." Remnants of Boudinot's bookplate on the front pastedown with small paper label above it. Text quite clean, early 20th century ink inscription below Boudinot's inscription; rubbing to spine and joints, "Harvard College" in gilt at base of spine, covers tight. Very Good .

BOWLES, Paul
Archive of 3 Typed Letters Signed (Tlss)
Tangier, Morocco, 1986. Letter. Three TYPED LETTERS SIGNED (TLSs) to Bob Sharrard, publisher/proprietor of City Lights Books in San Francisco, on onionskin paper, SIGNED "Paul Bowles" and "Paul B" (two). Bowles writes from his home in Morocco on various literary matters. Some excerpts: "I think I wrote you that a gentleman named Pia-Rosales had taken Mrabet's [artist-storyteller Mohammed Mrabet, a close associate of Bowles] drawings with him to New York, where he was to mail them on to you.. I've written, as I probably have told you, both to William Morris Agency and to Black Sparrow, asking for a reversion of rights on four volumes by Mrabet: THE BOY WHO SET THE FIRE, HARMLESS POISONS, LOOK AND MOVE ON, and THE BIG MIRROR.. I suppose Black Sparrow could always claim that they intended to republish the titles, but even if they said it I wouldn't believe it.. The check for Mrabet arrived yesterday; thanks.. I hope the additional drawings have reached you by now.. I'm pleased to hear that ten of them have been sold. I look forward to seeing the Voice's review of LOVE WITH A FEW HAIRS. And the NEW YORK NATIVE's review of THE LEMON.. The Burroughs quote for the Choukri's book is excellent. Choukri is having a great success with that novel; it's being translated into Bulgarian, and, believe it or not, Hebrew in Israel. (This last must be for political reasons: to show how abjectly the Moslems live. Perhaps I'm wrong, but it does seem suspicious)." Accompanied by the original mailing envelopes. Mailing folds and small marginal hole to one letter, otherwise Fine .
