        Some Observations Upon the Late Tryals of Sir George Wakeman, Corker and Marshal . . . By Tom Tickle-foot the Taborer, late Clerk to Justice Clodpate [etc.]. Wing S4540

      A sensationally-phrased but amazingly perceptive contemporary analysis of the Popish Plot, written just after the acquittal of George Wakeman and others had swung the balance against Oates, supposedly written by a former clerk to an imaginary judge. Modern calf, some light browning, else quite a good copy. Printed for A. Brewster [F. Smith], London, 1679.

        The Tryal of Philip Earl of Pembroke and Montgomery, Before the Peers in Westminster-Hall, on Thursday the 4th of April 1678. Wing T2209. Folio

      A fine example of the peculiarities of English law, the Earl, indicted for murder, claiming his right to be tried by his peers in the House of Lords, is there convicted of manslaughter only, and so invokes his privilege of peerage and is discharged. Original ?self-wraps, re-sewn and repaired, ink squiggles, notations and markings on the title, else a good clean copy; no copy in a law library in ESTC. N.p., London, 1679.

      The sole account of Harris' trial, "a strange combination of seditious libel and scandalum magnatum", influential upon the writings of Henry Care and John Hawles and on emerging libel doctrine, "reviv[ing] the claim to the jury's right to decide law". Modern buckram over boards, ex-library, some foxing and browning, but a usable copy; folio, eight pages. N.p., n.p., 1679.

        Précis des Oeuvres mathématiques de Fermat et de l'Arithmétique de Diophante.Toulouse: Douladoure, 1853. First edition, offprint issue.

      A separately paginated offprint from the Mémoires de l'Académie des Sciences de Toulouse, Tom. III. Brassinne begins (pp. 11-46) with a summary of the contents of Fermat's Varia Opera published by his son Samuel in 1679. This is followed (pp. 47-131) with a summary of the six books of Diophantus' Arithmetica, together with the comments Fermat added in the margins of his copy of the 1621 edition of that work (one of which was Fermat's 'last theorem'). The remainder of the work reprints Fermat's correspondence with Mersenne, Pascal, Roberval and others. In view of the relative inaccessibility of the original works, for many 19th century mathematicians and historians this was the most accessible source for understanding Fermat's work before the publication of his Oeuvres (1891-1912).. 8vo: 220 x 140 mm. Contemporary plain wrappers (chipped at edges). 164 pp. and 2 folded engraved plates
