Description: Exceedingly rare and historically important autographed document signed, 2 pages (front and back), oversize folio, 14.75 x 9 inches, signed twice "Barnabas Binney" (obverse and recto), November 21, 1786. In this document, Binney is agreeing to sell his various accumulated parcels of land under the guidance of Samuel Nicholson, in small part: "...in consideration of the sum of one thousand pounds Pennsylvania currency...I do hereby assign unto Samuel Nicholson, of the County of Franklin, all my right and title in the following parcels." He then proceeds to list extensive real estate holdings. Also signed by George Bryan (1731-1791), who was the first Vice President of Pennsylvania and its second President following the Declaration of Independence, outlining the arrangement that has been made with "Dr. Barnabas Binney."

Comments: Binney is considered one of the most honorable and compassionate surgeons to have served in the Continental Army during the American Revolution. The war took a terrible toll on Binney's life and he died at age 36 in Philadelphia.

Your beautifully wrapped package of books -- two copies of "Journal in the Night" -- arrived at my door this morning and made my day! A thousand thanks for the care you took, first to find them, and then to send them as you did, all done up with tissue paper to boot. It was like Christmas in June AND it was my first experience buying books on the Internet. All the best to you, and perhaps our paths will cross again. - Janet B.
