at the bottom of it was uniformly cut off by the binder. The date
was so rare that Gowans, the veteran collector and dealer, had not

ton Ives Catalog.

This volume was written during 1670 by one Daniel Denton, an
officer of the law, in Jamaica, in Queens County, on Long Isalnd,
and is a vivid and clear description of New York city and of the
surrounding country (including the present State of New Jersey)
of that period. The inhabitants, their customs, habits and conditions
are also carefully noted, the Indians are mentioned quite exhaust-
ively, and the whole forms a narrative of great historical interest.

"Aside from its physical peculiarities, the subject-matter is of
much interest to the collector of Americana or the student of the
youth of his country." Reader Magazine. Burrows Brothers Cat.

"The first edition was published in March, and the second in

ahead of the Gazette and Journal, which joined the others with
numbers one and two, on the loth of Dec. They were promptly
reprinted in nearly all the twenty-five papers then published on the
continent. Miller and Sower's German papers and the Boston Even-

"Written in a plain style, didactic yet argumentative, and with
illustrations taken from classical and English constitutional sources,
each point proven with telling accuracy, John Dickinson's clear
exposition of the constitutional relations between Parliament and
the Colonies circulated widely, and did much to mould opinion at
home and abroad.

"Owing to the beauty of its page and typography, and tke
excellence of its binding, one of the Boston editions was selected
for reprinting at The Gilliss Press in a limited edition of two
hundred and sixty copies on Van Gelder hand-made paper.

"The type used is the Caslon Old Style, the nearest approach to
that used in the original edition and the book is set page for page,
and line for line with original.

"The historical introduction is by R. T. H. Halsey, and there
are for illustrations a portrait of John Dickinson (photogravure on
copper by Bilbo, after a contemporary print), and a gelatine print
in colors, of a contemporary Chelsea-Derby porcelain statuette."
