The school of fencing : with a general explanation of the principal attitudes and positions peculiar to the art by Domenico Angelo( Book )

2 editions published in 1787 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Domenico Angelo's The School of Fencing was first published in 1763 and was one of the most popular and influential treatises of its time. Today, it remains essential reading for any historical swordfighter, student of martial arts, or military historians, giving the reader access to one of the great masters of the art. This modern edition is annotated by Maestro Jeannette Acosta-Martinez, who is currently the foremost expert in the French small sword. Her additions to this edition help clarify Angelo's text for the modern reader. This edition also includes an introduction by the editor, Jared Kirby, which gives a short history of Angelo's life." -- Provided by publisher
A voyage towards the North Pole : undertaken by His Majesty's command, 1773 by Constantine John Phipps Mulgrave( Book )

1 edition published in 1774 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A friend of Sir Joseph Banks, and with scientific interests of his own, the naval officer Constantine John Phipps (1744-92) was appointed by the Admiralty in 1773 to command an Arctic expedition in search of a passage to the Pacific. Among the crew was a young Horatio Nelson and a freed slave, Olaudah Equiano, who became the first African to visit the Arctic. Although unsuccessful in its primary aim, the voyage is noteworthy for Phipps' description of the polar bear as a distinct species, and for being a naval voyage on which research was deemed as crucial as exploration. Following the publication of this account in 1774, the Gentleman's Magazine commented that 'there has not appeared a voyage in any language so replete with nautical information, nor in which the mariner and philosopher can find such liberal entertainment'. Illustrated throughout, the work includes a substantial appendix containing the scientific data

Henry Clinton papers by Henry Clinton( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Henry Clinton papers contain the correspondence, records, and maps of Henry Clinton, who served under Thomas Gage and William Howe between 1775 and 1778, and was commander-in-chief of the British forces in North America from 1778 to 1782. Although the bulk of the papers cover his tenure as commander-in-chief, with particular attention to engagements in New York and New Jersey and the sieges of Charleston and Yorktown, they also document Clinton's efforts to restore his reputation after the war, and to some extent, his personal life

Charles Sloane Cadogan, Earl Cadogan papers by Charles Sloane Cadogan( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The core of this small collection consists of letters addressed to Cadogan reporting or justifying various expenditures made during the Prince's European travels between 1763 and 1767. The chief correspondents are Edward Augustus himself (9 letters), his Groom of the Bedchamber Colonel (later General) Henry St. John of Rockley, Wiltshire (32 letters), his Master of the Horse Colonel Sir William Boothby, Baronet, of Ashbourne Hall Derbyshire (10 letters), his equerry Colonel George Morrison (2 letters), and his younger brother Prince William Henry, Duke of Gloucester (1 letter only). There are passing references to travel plans, people met, and social entertainments attended, but little descriptive or other substantive comment about the pasing countryside or individual cities. The overall impression given is one of a small, informal, extravagant, and pleasure-loving royal party, well entertained by social events given in their honor, by romantic encounters with local ladies, and in one instance at least (when dining with the Duc de Villars in 1767) by homosexual propositions. Only Morrison's two letters from September 1767 can be considered descriptive travel accounts in the conventional sense. St. John provides much detail about the Prince's final illness and death and the mourning ceremonies in Monaco. Boothby and the Prince occasionally send directions concerning horses in England. In most cases the amounts of reported expenditures are summary totals only, with very few specific expenses explained. The Prince and his attendants constantly complained of their limited allowance from King and Parliament and pressed Cadogan to obtain an increase in the royal stipend
