The title page for the first part is dated 1700, the title page for the second part and the Hawkins dedication are dated 1760, so it seems to be the 1760 edition. the book is clean, tight, square and unmarked with contemporary spine covering of tan calf with five raised bands and bright gilt titles. The boards appear to be the original in brown leather and brass clasps at the fore edge. They have been rubbed to rounding at the corners. The front paste down has the name of John Bell Thirsk. The first part has 302 clear pages with occasional toning and some minor damp stain in the upper corner spine for a dozen or so page near the end. The second part has 128 pages plus an index. The frontispiece of part 2 is a plate of Cotton. Both parts are illustrated with black & white plates. The spine covering has been replaced making this a very handsome book. As this book is from the library of American Impressionist J. Alden Weir, the father of Caroline Weir (Caro Weir Ely), artist, print maker, book binder, there is a chance it was she who did this work.

[Diamond cutting and trade in Spain].
N.d. [c.1700]. [Spain]. 4to. 78 ff.; manuscript written in a neat hand within a double-rule border, possibly a presentation copy, enclosed in a double-rule ink border, with numerous tables and diagrams in ink (including one folding). Contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt in compartments with raised bands; edges somewhat rubbed and joints worn but otherwise a good copy. Excellent condition.- Extremely rare manuscript, no other copies of this treatise have been found; the work provides a technical description of the diamond – which the author notes is ‘la Joia mas subperior en las Piedras, y como tal tiene el primer lugar por su mucha hermosura, gran fortaleza, i yncorruptivilidad’ – and the various methods to work such stones into beautiful gems in keeping with their qualities. Embellished with numerous diagrams, plans and tables, a book with this amount of technical detail was probably a well trade kept secret and treasured trove of information for a family of jewellers, which would explain why it never made it to the printing presses. This singular eighteenth-century manuscript is a copy of an otherwise unknown seventeenth-century treatise on diamonds: the author remains unknown but refers to Philip IV of Spain (r. 1621–1665) as his master and displays a detailed knowledge of the diamond trade at this time. It includes (on f. 2) a description of the famous and now lost diamond, known as ‘El Estanque’ (named ‘The Pond’ for its size and clarity), which, as the author notes, was then the largest and most perf … [Click Below for Full Description]

Il est en outre enrichi de 5 gravures (trois au début, p.119 & p.190). Il est titré simplement au dos « Comp philo » et porte en pied de dos la mention « de pie mont », probablement donc de Piemont. · La première gravure semble être une page de titre non remplie, gravée par Jollain, avec les armes de France et de Navarre. En bas, dans le petit cartouche réservé à l'éditeur, on devine le nom qui aurait dû apparaître : « Chez Eustache Foucault rue St Jacques à la coquille ». Ce qui est intéressant ici c'est qu'Eustache Foucault était actif jusqu'en 1641 et que le premier graveur Jollain mentionné est Gérard Jollain vers 1660. Peut-être est-ce bien ce Jollain, déjà actif à cette époque ? · Les deux gravures suivantes sont des gravures religieuses probablement vers 1660 simplement signées « Rue S. Jacques au Séraphin », donc de la boutique de la veuve Nicolas Regnesson. · Les deux dernières gravures, signées Jollain, sont des gravures sur la logique philosophique et notamment le syllogisme.
