Bloch, Julius M., Leo Hershkowitz, Kenneth Scott, Constance D. Sherman, editors.  
An Account of Her Majesty's Revenue in the Province of New York, 1701-09. The Customs Records of Early Colonial New York.

Publisher: Gregg Press, Ridgewood, N.J. [1966].
Extra-oversize folio; l, 288, [1], li-lxx p., indexes, illus, facsimiles. The first decade of the 18th century saw quickened economic activity as well as tighter government regulation. In this volume can be traced the foundations of New York's commercial success. 'With the exception of the governor, probably no single official in the colony of New York received as careful selection, or was given more detailed instruction by the crown, than the customs collector. ...Through Customs House doors passed most, if not all, incoming and outgoing provincial trade from overseas, as well as from the other mainland colonies. ...The collectorship was often in the center of political controversy. ...The history of this office is a good example of the essential weakness of the imperial system and the strength, craftiness, and independence of the colonists' (from the introduction). Contents include a glossary of early 18th-century terms, New York shipping news, provenance of New York customs records, indexes of ships, merchants, masters of ships, disbursements, and a geographical index. Orange boards; VG+. Stock#21576 oversize.

Plural Office-Holding in Massachusetts 1760-1780: Its Relation to the 'Sepearation' of Departments of Government
 Picture
Publisher: The University of North Carolina Press, 1945 Chapel Hill, NC.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "'Has not his Honor the Lieutenant-Governor..grasped four of the most important officers..into hisown hands?..Has not the Lieutenant-Governor a brother, a Judge of the pleas in Boston, and a namesake and near relation wh9o is another Judge? Has not the Lieutenant-Governor a near relation who is register of his own court of probate, and deputy secretary? Has he not another near relation who is Clerk of the House of Representatives?' This diatribe is not taken from 'The Washington Merry-Go-Round' of 1944, but from the diary of John Adams, under date of August 15, 1765. At that time plural office-holding was an almost universal practice in the American colonies. In the present study the author's purpose is to show the relation of that custom ''to the movement for the separation of departments of government in Massachusetts in the latter part of the colonial period, as that movement culminated..in the Massachusetts Constitution of 1780.'.." xiii + 227 pages with index.

Clay, Jehu Curtis  
Annals of the Swedes on the Delaware
 Picture
Publisher: John Ericsson Memorial Committee, 1938 Chicago, IL.
Book. Book condition: Good to Very Good. Very Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall Introduction by Henry S. Hensches, with an appendix in the memory of John Ericsson. The first edition of this book was published in 1835. Clay worked with limited access to source material, but does provide "a continuous history of the Swedish settlements on the Delaware from the beginning until the present time.. He has seized the one point of prime interest to him in the settlement, namely, the ecclesiastical side of its history, which gives a unity to his book. A most interesting feature of the Annals is the 'list of Swedish families residing in New Sweden in the year 1693, with the number of individuals in each family; taken from the document left by Mr. Rudman, ' which follows Chapter XII. This list 'making 139 families, 939 individuals' was appended to Charles Springer's letter of May 31, 1693, to John Thelin in Goteborg. It is a valuable contribution to American and Swedish history and indicates that in 1693 only 39 colonists were natives of Sweden..Here are recorded the ancestors of tens of thousands of useful - at times distinguished -Ameican citizens.." 232 pages. Book is in GOOD or better condition. Illustrated. Dust jacket has been protected in a plastic cover and is thus in VERY GOOD condition.
