by [Treaties of Paris - Great Britain and France]
Paris: de l'Imprimerie Royale, 1783. 35pp. Quarto. Later marbled boards, leather label. Very minor marginal dampstain throughout. Near fine, untrimmed. The official French printing of the final treaty of peace between France and England in the American War of Independence, concluded Sept. 3, 1783, the same day as the final peace between the other powers in the conflict. Because of the French naval setbacks in 1782, the treaty resulted in little territorial loss for England, and the powers returned each other's Caribbean possessions. Furthermore, England's claims to Newfoundland were maintained, and mutual fishing rights off the Canadian coast were agreed upon. The NUC and OCLC together locate nine copies of this scarce printing. DAVENPORT 171. SABIN 96557. OCLC 25450771, 21984761.
