    Lodge, Jno [John]:  An Accurate Map of Rhode Island, Part of Connecticut and Massachusets Shewing Admiral Arbuthnot's Station in Blocking up Admiral Ternay.  London: J. Bew, 1780. First Edition. 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.

Very good+ in dark blue cloth covered boards with orange text and decorations on the spine and on the front board. A small octavo measuring 7 1/2 by 5 1/8 inches with rubbing and wear to the cloth at the head and heel of the spine. With only the front panel of the first issue dust jacket done by Stafford Good under a clear acetate dust jacket protector. As noted above this copy has only a portion of the Stafford Good first state dust jacket which was originally used to cover the initial copies of the first edition. Roberts complained so bitterly about this jacket that the publisher (Doubleday) had to remove the book from the market to have a new jacket designed and painted by N.C. Wyeth. Any collector of Roberts' books aspires to have a first edition copy of this title in the first state dust jacket.

This ultimately lead to the victory at Saratoga the following year. A handsome, clean copy of one of Roberts' most significant historical fiction novels.

Although the Battle of Valcour Island was considered a loss to the American forces its outcome was significant enough to delay the British advance down the lake and was a major reason for the ultimate victory at Saratoga a year later.

    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)
