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.

I have to congratulate you and Argosy Book store. I have received "Fêtes Galantes" very promptly on Thursday and had no tax to pay (very rare 'cause French customs are very greedy when parcels arrived from the States). Love to do business with you ! Best regards - M.A.
