First edition. *Nicolas de Fer (1646-1720) inherited his father's cartography business, which he quickly developed into a flourishing enterprise, producing town plans, atlases, and over 600 sheet maps, and becoming one of the most prolific cartographic publishers of his era. In 1690 he was appointed official geographer to the Dauphin (the heir to the French throne), and when Louis XIV's grandson, the Duke of Anjou, acceded to the Spanish throne, de Fer was proclaimed Geographer of the King of Spain as well. De Fer made maps of places throughout Europe and in North America, including one in 1698 depicting beavers building dams near Niagara Falls.\i Introduction a la Fortification was issued in parts between 1690 and 1695, then re-issued in 1705 (with the maps re-dated accordingly). Maps in this copy are dated from 1692 to 1695, with several undated. They depict fortified towns in France, the Low Countries, Germany, Italy, Spain and around the Mediterranean. The extra plates in this copy are Chartres, Nouveau Canal, Echelle, Quebec and Batavia. The intricate folding \i Table Geografique enables the reader to calculate journey distances from Paris to all the principle towns in Europe. This copy is from the collection of Australian military historian and academic Alec Jeffrey Hill. Born in 1916 and educated at Sydney Grammar, the University of Sydney and Balliol College, Oxford, Hill served with the Second Australian Imperial Force in 1939, commanding a company of the 2/13th Infantry Battalion during the Siege of Tobruk. He later fought in the New Guinea and Borneo campaigns, and for his war service was made a Member of the Order of the British Empire in 1947. After the war he lectured in history at the Royal Military College, Duntroon, where he mentored a new generation of soldiers and military historians. Hill was a regular contributor to the \i Australian Dictionary of Biography , but his best known work is the biography of General Sir Harry Chauvel, which was published in 1978 and is regarded as the first modern scholarly biography of a senior Australian military figure. He died in 2008. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         JUSHIKEI RYAKI WAGO: TREATISE ON ACUPUNCTURE & MOXA. Alternate Title: JUSHIKEI H

      - [Edo ? 1695, Akatsujyu]. Brown stitched wrs., covers worn, solid, bit of old minor marginal worming, text mostly not affected, [50+5] double folded leaves, 3 vols. bound in one vol., 15 full page illustrations, new title label. R A R E *** *** *** . . . GODRON E. MESTLER'S PERSONAL COLLECTION COPY . . . *** A very early illustrated and most excellent monograph. This legendary work is written in Kambun with Furigana [Chinese characters with Japanese reading sounds] for easy Japanese reading. . * PER MESTLER IN HIS "GALAXY": . ".this work was "explained" by Okamoto and drew heavily upon JUSHIKEI HAKKI by Katsu Ju in 1684 Jushikei Hakkei is likely the work of a Chinese physician, then followed with a theoretical discussion by Katsu. The book is chiefly on acupuncture but equally on moxa, not on how to cure but on the more fundamental nature of the subject. This discusses the basic Chinese and Japanese belief in a relationship between the internal organs and their diseases & curative treatment for them at specific sites on the outside of the body. The balance is on moxa. Thus, Okamoto "explained" what he read and studied in this work, based on the earlier Katsu title. Mestler states on p.476 this is a 3 vol. set, Vol. 2 has 16 stunning illustrations of "channels & points" for acupuncture and moxibustion. . Moxa or moxibustion uses the herb artemisia vulgaris latifolia which is burned either on the skin directly, or on top of small slabs of garlic over the "points." Damp moxa is also formed at the top end of acupuncture needles, then lit on fire to provide maximum therapeutic benefits, after insertion in the appropriate "point." . *** RELATIONSHIP TO DATE & EDITION: Our 2nd volume shows the back colophon, the first printing to be 1684, and a 2nd printing to be 1764. Although Mestler cites on p.476, the work was published in 1693. . * This title, and also KATSU, Juu.: JUSHI KEI HAKKI: THE FOURTEEN CHANNELS: An Early Japanese And Chinese acupuncture & Moxabustion Medical Treatise [our book no. 200334 also part of the Gordon E. Mestler collection]. Chinese Title: SHI SI JING XU, [1684] are related. The 2nd part of this was with title JUSHIKEI KETSU CHI-HO, and later re-written & re-explained by Okamoto as JUSHIKEI RYAKU WAGO, [this title now described], published later. See GALAXY, pp.475,476 & plate I B opposite p.474 for additional details. . *** THE AUTHOR'S ALTERNATE NAMES: The author was also known as Ipposhi, Ichiku, Ittokusai and also: Tametake or Hakujin, this was a common practice for Japanese to have 'studio' or alternate first names. See GALAXY, p.474 footnote 10 at the bottom of the page. Okamoto's famous brother, was an author and playwright who was eminently known as the "Japanese Shakespeare." See Whitney p.317. . ***.

         Of the Consolation of Philosophy.

      London: printed by J.D. for Awnsham and John Churchill; and Francis Hildyard bookseller in York,, 1695. In five books. Made English and illustrated with notes, by the Right Honourable Richard Lord Viscount Preston. Octavo (187 x 115 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, gilt spine titles, blind decoration on spine, red sprinkled edges, contemporary inscription. Engraved portrait frontispiece. Covers scuffed, extremities rubbed, spine ends chipped, joints cracked at spine ends; frontispiece and a few leaves somewhat browned, still a good copy. First edition of this translation which includes "The Life of Boetius" and "The Testimonies of several writers concerning Boethius translated" in the preliminaries. The translator, Richard Graham, first Viscount Preston (1648–1695), clearly identified closely with Boethius, having himself been sentenced to death for his Jacobite activities, although he saved himself from the scaffold in 1691 (and earned himself opprobrium) by testifying against his accomplices. The translation was his occupation during his last years in retirement at Nunnington Hall in Yorkshire. The preface contains a number of references to his situation, including the complaint that his judges had been more lenient than friends who despised him for giving way under trials that they had never undergone.

Antonj Nuck (1650-1692), was also often called Antonius Nuck van Leiden, after his native city. He commenced his medical studies in Harderwyjk, but changed to Leiden where he received his doctorate in 1677 with the dissertation diabetes. He then settled as a practitioner in Delft. In 1683 he was called to Den Haag as a lecturer of anatomy at the Collegium anatomicum chirurgicum, working there as a teacher of anatomy before eventually returning to Leiden, where he was appointed to the chair of medicine and anatomy. His excellent theoretical lecturing, but even more his practical-anatomical teaching soon earned him a reputation that attracted students even from far away to Leiden. Besides anatomy, physiology was Nuck's most important field of research. Besides anatomy, physiology was Nuck's most important field of research. He did his most important work in investigating the lymphatics and glands, in which he used the injection technique much as Ruysch had done with blood vessels."Sialographia contains some of Nuck's best work on glands and ducts, particularly the salivaries and tear ducts. The six large engraved folding plates were drawn by Nuck". Heirs of Hippocrates No. 673 (1st. Ed.1690)

         Britannia. Newly Translated into English with large additions and improvements.

      Printed by F. Collins for A. Swalle and A. and J. Churchill. Folio. (405x250mm) pp. frontispiece engraved portrait of Camden; title page; [32], cxcvi (in double columns), 832 (double column), 833-848 (single column), 849- 1116 (double column), [18]pp Annals of Ireland, [24]pp index, [2]pp appendix. Fifty double page engraved maps, many by Morden and nine pages of coins and other antiquities, including Stonehenge as required. Contemporary panelled calf, spine with six raised bands and seven compartment. Title in gilt on a red label to second compartment. Covers have wear and stripping. Spine is worn at head and foot with loss. Cracking to hinges. An engraving of Paxton's Crystal Palace in Hyde Park has been stuck onto the front pastedown. The contents are in near fine condition with only one tear (to Xx3) which affects the edge of one illustration but with no loss to the text. This is a very fresh and clean text block. The only map with any damage is a small tear to one of the folds of the map of Norfolk. This is, perhaps, to be expected as the previous owners of this copy were the Bulwer-Long family from Heydon Hall, Norfolk who are kinsmen of the Bulwer Lyttons. The top of the title page has the inscription "Lt Colonel Bulwer from [illegible]". Aside from the condition of the binding, which can be repaired and restored, this is a lovely copy of one of the central works of early-modern British history and with an excellent provenance.William Camden (1551-1623) began Britannia in 1577. It was conceived as a full topographical and historical survey, his intention being to "restore antiquity to Britaine, and Britain to his antiquity". It was first published, in Latin, in 1586 and was hugely popular running to five further editions over the following twenty years, each one with new material added. By the time of the 1607 edition, maps and illustrations were included. The first English language edition appeared in 1610. Britannia is a work of chorography (Camden calls it a Chorographica descriptio), a genre which owes its origins and definition to Ptolemy. It is distinct from history and geography but includes both. Ptolemy saw chorography as the study of the smaller, constituent parts of the geographical whole. Camden's work represents probably the fullest example of the Renaissance revival of this branch of classical learning. Camden aimed to show, county by county, how the traces of the past existed in and informed the contemporary landscape. The most important fruit of this method was his detailed picture of Roman Britain, the first such study. Camden worked partly from first hand research, travelling widely in England and Wales (he learnt Welsh and Old English) but he also created a network of assistants who provided material for those parts of the islands he could not visit. The importance of Britannia was immediately recognised throughout Europe with later editions being published in Germany and the Netherlands. It remains a very popular work today, partly for the range of its scholarship and for the beauty and accuracy of the illustrations.

         Tab. VI. Asiae, Arabiam Felicem, Carmaniam ac Sinum Persicum comprehendens.

      Amsterdam, 1695. - Hand-coloured engraved map (485 x 340 mm). Striking old color example of the second edition of Mercator's Ptolemaic map of the Middle East, first issued in the 1695 edition of Mercator's Geographia, based upon the works of Claudius Ptolemy. Mercator's map was a landmark in the mapping of the Arabian Peninsula, being the last published edition of Ptolemy and without question the most heavily researched and studied of all editions by its maker. Ptolemy had originally drawn on the accounts of travelers and sailors and though the information was secondhand and often inaccurate it represented the most advanced account of the world's geography at that time. In the case of Arabia, Ptolemy overestimated both the width of the southern part of Arabia and the size and shape of the Persian Gulf. Arabia Petrea and Arabia Deserta are both placed in the north and Arabia Felix is the term applied to the whole peninsula, rather than to the southern portions of it. Ptolemy's map, as interpreted by European cartographers such as Mercator, was hugely influential and served as a standard for European mapping of the peninsula for many years. Tibbetts 39.

         A New Map of the English Empire in America viz Virginia, Maryland, Carolina, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jarsey, New England, Newfoundland, New France &c

      London, 1695 - Separately issued map of English Colonial America Double-page engraved map (490 by 630mm to the neatline, full margins showing the plate mark). A rare, separately-published, early map of eastern North America west to the Mississippi River. One of the earliest obtainable English maps to focus on the entirety of English North America. This is the original state of a map made famous by John Senex in 1719. A nod to English imperial intentions, this map of the eastern part of North America notes coastal development while suggesting available lands in the undeveloped interior of the continent. It features a prominent, albeit fictitious, mountain range extending from Michigan into Florida and connecting with the Appalachians. The error remained on maps into the nineteenth century. The English colonies are shown drawn on recent cartography such as the Hermann map of Virginia and Reed map of William Reed's manuscript map of New England, and the recent grants of Pennsylvania and West New Jersey. The map includes an influential (though not completely positive) treatment of the Great Lakes, the aforementioned false transcontinental mountain range, a depiction of the Mississippi River, and many details of the English colonies. Morden's map was an early example of English cartographers contesting French claims to the North American interior: in addition to the American Midwest, Morden depicts much of New France as under English dominion. Nevertheless, the English colonies along the Atlantic Seaboard are carefully delineated according to English sources, but Canada, the Mississippi Valley, and the Great Lakes are based on the French maps of Dablon (1672) and Thevenot (1681). With an inset of Boston Harbour to the left of the cartouche derived from the Pound map of 1691, and "A General Map of the Coasts & Isles of Europe, Africa and America" as a globe gore lower right.

         Britannia. Newly Translated into English with large additions and improvements.

      Oxford: Edmund Gibson 1695 - Printed by F. Collins for A. Swalle and A. and J. Churchill. Folio. (405x250mm) pp. frontispiece engraved portrait of Camden; title page; [32], cxcvi (in double columns), 832 (double column), 833-848 (single column), 849- 1116 (double column), [18]pp Annals of Ireland, [24]pp index, [2]pp appendix. Fifty double page engraved maps, many by Morden and nine pages of coins and other antiquities, including Stonehenge as required. Contemporary panelled calf, spine with six raised bands and seven compartment. Title in gilt on a red label to second compartment. Covers have wear and stripping. Spine is worn at head and foot with loss. Cracking to hinges. An engraving of Paxton's Crystal Palace in Hyde Park has been stuck onto the front pastedown. The contents are in near fine condition with only one tear (to Xx3) which affects the edge of one illustration but with no loss to the text. This is a very fresh and clean text block. The only map with any damage is a small tear to one of the folds of the map of Norfolk. This is, perhaps, to be expected as the previous owners of this copy were the Bulwer-Long family from Heydon Hall, Norfolk who are kinsmen of the Bulwer Lyttons. The top of the title page has the inscription "Lt Colonel Bulwer from [illegible]". Aside from the condition of the binding, which can be repaired and restored, this is a lovely copy of one of the central works of early-modern British history and with an excellent provenance. William Camden (1551-1623) began Britannia in 1577. It was conceived as a full topographical and historical survey, his intention being to "restore antiquity to Britaine, and Britain to his antiquity". It was first published, in Latin, in 1586 and was hugely popular running to five further editions over the following twenty years, each one with new material added. By the time of the 1607 edition, maps and illustrations were included. The first English language edition appeared in 1610. Britannia is a work of chorography (Camden calls it a Chorographica descriptio), a genre which owes its origins and definition to Ptolemy. It is distinct from history and geography but includes both. Ptolemy saw chorography as the study of the smaller, constituent parts of the geographical whole. Camden's work represents probably the fullest example of the Renaissance revival of this branch of classical learning. Camden aimed to show, county by county, how the traces of the past existed in and informed the contemporary landscape. The most important fruit of this method was his detailed picture of Roman Britain, the first such study. Camden worked partly from first hand research, travelling widely in England and Wales (he learnt Welsh and Old English) but he also created a network of assistants who provided material for those parts of the islands he could not visit. The importance of Britannia was immediately recognised throughout Europe with later editions being published in Germany and the Netherlands. It remains a very popular work today, partly for the range of its scholarship and for the beauty and accuracy of the illustrations. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Fine. 2º in 4s: [40],407,[1],[12, Index and publisher's advert]pp (91-94 mis-numbered 93-96; 121 mis-numbered 123), with engraved frontispiece portrait of Locke by P.

A Fine, bright, tight, clean copy (text block apparently washed), with loss of several letters P4 and closed tear, without loss, through several lines Hh. Provenance: Early ownership signatures (of H. Jowett and J. [probably John] Loxley) on front free end paper, placing this copy at Cambridge (respectively, Magdalene College and St. Catharine's College, dated "Novr 23rd 1830") and of Trafford Barriston to title page. Wing L2741. Yolton 63. Pforzheimer 599 and PMM 164 (for first edition). Third Edition of the "most popular and enduring of all Locke's writings (Yolton)," a line-by-line reprint of the Second Edition (1694) with only minor adjustments and the errata corrected, but still with many misprints. First published in 1690, the Essay attracted immediate attention, both favorable and not, much of it directed toward Locke's concept of the mind as tabula rasa. "This was unacceptable—even shocking—to many of Locke's readers, including the most profound of his early critics, Leibniz. For Locke the human understanding was initially like ‘white Paper, void of all Characters': all the ideas which it subsequently contains are derived from experience, either external or internal. The account of how the mind puts together various complex ideas from the material provided by sensation and reflection occupies Book 2, the longest in the Essay. Book 3 is on words, which have meaning only by acting as signs of ideas; Book 4 is on knowledge and opinion. . . . Perhaps the most original aspect of the Essay is, however, the conception of philosophy which it embodies. Locke abandoned the whole enterprise of first philosophy as practised from Aristotle to Descartes: he did not see himself as laying a metaphysical foundation on which natural philosophers could then build, but rather (as he put it in the ‘Epistle to the Reader’) ‘as an Under-Labourer … clearing Ground a little, and removing some of the Rubbish, that lies in the way to Knowledge’. (ODNB) In the substantially revised second edition, published May, 1694, the section in the chapter ‘Of power’ dealing with freedom was entirely recast, and there was a new chapter, ‘Of identity and diversity’, in which Locke equated personal identity with continuity of consciousness, and not with continuity of any spiritual substance." According to Pforzheimer, "The importance of few philosophical books have been so quickly recognized . . . It passed through many editions in English and has several times been translated." (Yolton tallies 56 different editions and translations by 1800, not counting abstracts and abridgments.) N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

         Commission for Greenwich Hospital.

      London printed by Charles Bill and the Executrix of Thomas Newcomb deceas'd printers to the Kings most Excellent Majesty. colophon 1695 - folio, 26 + (2)pp., including the final blank G2, printed largely in black letter, with a fine and large cut of the arms of King William III and a superbly ornamental initial letter 'W' at head of first leaf of text (A2), the title page simply lettered 'Commission for Greenwich Hospital', this rather soiled and foxed, some minor marginal soiling and defective corners, fairly recently well bound in morocco-backed marbled boards, spine lettered gilt. A good, large, copy. The Commission or Letter Patent,> dated at the end, 'at Westminster, the tenth day of September, in the seventh year of Our Reign', therefore seems to pre-date the Commission> dated 12th March 1695 (i.e. 1696 according to Lady Day dating).

Wing N139 and ESTC locate copies only at Lambeth Palace Lib. and Bodleian (a later printing, Wing N139aA dated 1699, is known by copies located at BL + Harvard). Two related documents of some rarity. The Commission> or Letter Patent, dated 10th September 1695, is not recorded by ESTC nor OCLC and there is no copy in BL. And we have not found it elsewhere (but see further notes below). Not in Wing. The Names of the Lords> is Wing N139, with the only copy located by Wing and ESTC being at the Bodleian. (A later printing, Wing N139aA dated 1699, is located at BL only). The Commission> of 10th September 1695 revoked the original Commission of 12 March 1694 (i.e. 1695). (Wing W.2312 has it as 12 March 1695 (i.e. 1696) which is surely wrong). Greenwich Royal Hospital was built by Wren, Vanbrugh and Hawksmoor on the site of the old royal palace at Greenwich after a charter had been granted by William and Mary in 1695 to found a hospital for seamen who had been injured or grown old in the service of the crown, as Chelsea Hospital had been instituted for soldiers by Charles II. Christopher Wren designed the hospital and John Evelyn was appointed treasurer. The foundation stone was laid on 30th June 1696, but it was not until 1706 that the first 42 Pensioners took up residence. The 1695 Commission names the Commissioners, these including many of those in high office in both the city of London itself and, more widely, in both church and state. Among them were Sir Josiah Child, Sir Robert Clayton, John Cary, John Evelyn (father and son), John Flamsteed, Sir John Houblon, Dr. Robert Hooke, John Locke, Samuel Pepys, Sir William Trumbull, Sir Christopher Wren, and many others hardly less distinguished. The case for the hospital was based on a mixture of national defence, economic ambition and human philanthropy. 'Whereas we are extreamly desirous that the trade, navigation and naval strength of this our Realm of England . should by all proper means be promoted and advanced: and whereas we are perswaded that nothing will more effectually contribute thereto, than the endeavouring, by due and fitting encouragements, to encrease the number of English seamen, as well for the strengthening of Our Navy Royal, and better performing the naval services of us, our heirs and successors, as for the supplying and carrying on the occasions and business of our merchants, and other our loving subjects, interested in trade, commerce, fishing, plantation, discovery, and other affairs relating to navigation . and nothing is more likely to continue this their ancient reputation, and to invite greater numbers of our subjects to betake themselves to the sea, than the making some competent provision, that seamen, who by age, wounds or other accidents, shall become disabled for further service at sea, and shall not be in a condition to maintain themselves comfortably, may not fall under hardships and [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      - Borba de Moraes, p. 93; De Backer & Sommervogel I, col. 1080, 4; Chadenat 754; not in Bosch; Sabin. First edition of a French biography of the Jesuit martyr Ignacio de Azevedo, by Father Gilles-François Beauvais (1695-1773), who modelled his book on the Italian biography by Father Cabral (pseudonym of Giulio Cesare Cordara) (1704-1785), published at Rome in 1743 under the title Relazione della vita e martirio del venerabile padre Ignazio de Azevedo. In the present biography, dedicated to King Stanislaus I of Poland, Beauvais made several additions, for example the "Martyre du Vénérable Père Diaz et de ses Compagnons", pp. 193-262. Most of the book is devoted to the life of the martyr Ignatius de Azevedo from Porto (1528-1570), who worked in Brazil as Visitator for the Jesuit Order. On 15 July 1570, he and his 39 companions at sea were killed by French Calvinist pirates near the Canary Islands. In 1854, these "40 martyrs of Brazil" were canonized. Beauvais's biography may be regarded as a loose translation, with additional material, of Cordara's biography, which was translated into Spanish in the same year and into German in 1856. A second edition of Beauvais's version was published at Brussels in 1854. The martyrdom of Ignacio de Azevedo and his companions has inspired many literary works up to the present day. Some faint marginal stains, a small corner of the last 2 leaves (and larger corners of the following endleaves) restored, not approaching the text. Boards scratched. In good condition.

         Nouvelle Histoire et extraordinaire d’une fille qui vit encore, du diocèse d’Agen; laquelle a vomi plusieurs horribles animaux acatiques, en vie

      Toulouse, Veuve de P. Rey 1695 - 14ff. + 286pp. + 1ff. Manque les gardes blanches et 4 feuillets (de la page 187 à 195) + Gravure dépliante hors texte volante représentant les animaux acatiques sus-cités. petit in-12 de 9 x 15cm. Reliure plein cuir de l’époque, frottements, petits accroc à la coiffe de queue et au chant supérieur du second plat. Reliure qui a tendance à bailler. Papier avec salissures, tache brune en marge d’une vingtaine de feuillet (pas d’atteinte du texte), mentions manuscrites sur les contres plats, planche dépliante jaunie. Cahiers dereglés. Signet de coton torsadé. Impression assez mauvaise, bavures, taches, irrégularités (caractéristiques communes avec les exemplaires compulsables) Très rare édition complète de la planche dépliante Ignoré par les bibliographes l’ouvrage est pourtant très curieux. Montresse rapporte le cas de Marie Mercié, qui de Décembre 1689 à Mai 1690, vomit plus de quatorze Salamandres et quantités d’autres animaux aquatiques (tétards, dytiques ). Le livre commence comme un « récit extraordinaire » mais s’attache à rejeter la superstition et proposer une théorie scientifique expliquant le phénomène. L’auteur tient un discours très moderne en rejetant notamment l’hypothèse de la génération spontanée dans le corps de la jeune fille et conclut en préconisant l’emploie de vermifuge (il devance ainsi Andry de quelques années !) « les uns avec trop de précipitation, disaient que cette fille était ensorcelée; parce qu’elle vomissait des animaux en vie, qui faisaient horreur, à tous ceux qui les regardaient; n’ayant pas même vue, ni entendu dire, qu’un pareil cas fut jamais plus arrivé. Les autres moins crédules que ceux-là, s’imaginaient, qu’il fallait qu’elle les eut avalé, par mégarde, en buvant de l’eau de quelque fontaine, étant encore petits, sans dire de quelle manière ni comment. D’autres enfin raisonnant en plus savants soutenaient, que la première source, de tous ces hydeux insectes, venait de l’amas de corruption, qui s’était formé dans le corps de cette patienten duquel à leur avis, ils avaient tiré leur premier principe » Aucun exemplaire en ligne en ce moment, 2 exemplaires passées en salle de vente ces 15 dernières années, l'un en 2006 l'autre en avril 2017 adjugé 3100€.

         An essay toward a natural history of the earth

      Ric. Wilkins, London 1695 - Contemporary full calf, rebacked. Bookplate of Edward Hilliard. First edition of what is considered the beginning of scientific geology in England. This influential book presents the orthodox contemporary views of earth structure. Woodward describes how he took every opportunity to examine digging operations, and despatched questionnaires to all parts of the world. "The information was a valuable contribution towards the knowledge of the regularity of the earth's structure everywhere" (Wolfe, History of Science, Technology and Philosophy, pp. 352, 364).In this work, Woodward (dates) recognized the existence of various strata in the earth's crust and the true nature of fossils, failing only to make the assumptions that earned William Smith the title of father of English geology. His most important contribution to science is his catalogue of the fossils which in the course of long years he had collected in England, and which now form an interesting portion of the Sedgwick Museum at Cambridge.

A little very light dampstaining just visible at tail edge of first 10 leaves approx., a few very light paper repairs to edges of first 4 leaves, frontis slightly toned with some light transfer to title. Contemporary brown speckled calf, raised bands to spine, edges sprinkled red. Neatly rebacked with spine label, corners repaired. Rubbed, scuffed, edges worn and a little chipped. Still a very good copy overall.'The conduct of war was prominent among Edmondes's (1567/8?-1622) interests. He urged the necessity for soldiers to read about and discuss the practice of their profession, to supplement their practical experience. He was encouraged by Sir John Scott to undertake an explanatory study of Caesar's Commentaries, published in 1600 as Observations, upon the Five First Bookes of Caesar's Commentaries and followed in the same year by Observations on the Sixth and Seventh Books. Edmondes explained that the work was directed at English soldiers and he supplemented his comments on Roman military practice with observations on contemporary campaigns, including those of the English forces in France and the war in Ireland, as well as the battle of Dreux of 1562 between the royal army and protestant forces in France. He also discussed the question of how to deal with an invasion of England, whether to oppose an invading army at the coast or to withdraw and offer battle later. His preference was to fortify the coast of Kent and oppose a landing. As well as military matters, he included an explanation of the causes of tides. [...] Thomas Fuller regarded him as an example of an author who achieved 'perfection of theory' in writing on military matters without having practical experience.' (ODNB). Edmund's Caesar was popular throughout the 17th century, being reprinted in 1655 and 1677 before this edition of 1695 appeared. Accordinging to Lathrop, 'it has no literary quality, either the springing, elastic energy of the original, or any compensatory power or grace. It does, however, do its pedestrian duty of communicating information accurately and clearly, though clumsily.'
