        THREE MILITARY HISTORICAL DOCUMENTS PERTAINING TO WILLIAM JONES (1753-1822), who served as the eighth Governor of Rhode Island from 1811-1817; including first, a document appointing William Jones as Lieutenant of the Second Company of Rhode Island, signed by Nicholas Cooke, Governor of the English Colony of Rhode Island, on behalf of King George III and dated January 18, 1776, bears Hope seal, 10 3/4 x 11 inches; second, a document appointing William Jones as Captain of the Second Company in Second Regiment of the Rhode Island Brigade, signed by John Hancock, the President of the Continental Congress, and dated September 13, 1776, 8 3/4 x 13 1/2 inches; and third, a document appointing William Jones as Captain of the Marines, signed by Henry Laurens, President of the Continental Congress, and dated March 4, 1778, 8 1/2 x 13 inches Other Notes: The first appointment in January of 1776 was while Rhode Island was still under British rule under King George III. In May of 1776, upon his re-election as Governor of Rhode Island, Nicholas Cooke's first order of business was to sever ties with England with a Decree issued by the General Assembly of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. Two months later the Declaration of Independence was signed in Philadelphia. In September, Jones was elevated to Captain of the same Rhode Island Regiment under the newly established Army of the United Colonies raised for defense of American liberty. Jones went on to serve as Captain of the Marines for the Navy of the United States of North America in 1778, where he was captured and taken prisoner at the Battle of Charleston along with over 5,000 Patriots. He later served as Governor of Rhode Island from 1811 to 1817.

Provenance: Jan Fitsingh (contemporary inscription title-page). "THE BIRTH OF COMPARATIVE PHILOLOGY" (PMM). FIRST EDITION. William Jones's paper announced his "epoch-making discovery" of the relationship between the Sanskrit, Gothic, Greek and Latin languages; this marked "a turning point in the history of linguistics and signalled the birth of comparative philology... His clear understanding of the basic principles of scientific linguistics provided the foundations on which Rask, Bopp and Grimm built the imposing structure of comparative Indo-European studies" (PMM). This first volume of the Transactions, also includes Samuel Turner's An Account of a Journey to Tibet describing Purangir's journey to the Panchen Lama. Warren Hastings, the most enlightened of the British Governors General, was the Society's patron, which "quickly became the catalyst for a sudden explosion of interest in Hinduism, as it formed enduring relations with the local Bengali intelligentsia and led the way to uncovering the deepest roots of Indian history and civilization" (Dalrymple White Mughals, 2004, p.41); PMM 235.
