        Conformite des Coutumes des Indians Orientaux

      1704. First Edition . (INDIA) CRÉQUINIÈRE, M. De La. Conformité des Coutumes des Indiens Orientaux, Avec celles des Juifs & des autres Peoples de l’Antiquité. Brusselles: George de Backer, 1704. 16mo (4 by 6-1/4 inches), contemporary half crushed red morocco, raised bands, marbled boards and endpapers. $2200.Second edition, issued one year after the virtually unobtainable first edition, of Créquinière’s important early work proposing cultural similarities between early East Indian and Jewish cultures, illustrated with 12 spendid engraved plates after Jacobus Harrewyn depicting dramatic battle scenes and religious rituals, handsomely bound in crushed red morocco by Selz-Niedree.In Conformité des Coutumes des Indiens Orientaux (Uniformity of the Customs of Oriental Indians and those of Jews and other Ancient Peoples), French religious scholar Le Sieur de la Créquinière sought to trace “similarities between modern Indians and ancient Jews…. attempting to fortify the historicity of the Old Testament by enlisting Indians as surrogates for ancient Jews (Sutcliffe, Judaism and Enlightenment, 74). De la Créquiniere, who spent a number of years in India, proposes early Hebrew and East Indian civilizations share major religious origins. To key modern scholars, Conformité “is an important work in the genesis of historical ethnology…. As the title implies, the focus is mostly on the comparison between the East Indians and the Jews, but a number of references to the ancient Romans are also made…. As Joel Reed rightly argues…. It serves both to highlight ‘the presence of transcultural religious concepts and practices,’ but also to diminish ‘the relative importance of any particular religion” (Lurbe, 18th-Century Ireland Society 14:133). The same publisher’s 1703 first edition is very rarely found. Precedes the 1705 first edition in English. With engraved ornamental initials, head- and tailpieces. Containing 12 engraved plates after Jacobus Harrewyn, depicting religious and cultural practices, including images of funeral rites, snake charmers and a battle scene with elephants and camels. Leaf of publisher’s ad at rear. Text in French. Querard IV, 372. Cioranescu 35431. Text and plates fresh with only light scattered foxing, mild edge-wear to boards. A lovely near-fine copy.

A Protestant, William participated in several wars against the powerful Catholic king of France, Louis XIV, in coalition with Protestant and Catholic powers in Europe. Many Protestants heralded him as a champion of their faith. In 1685, his Catholic father-in-law, James, Duke of York, became king of England, Ireland and Scotland. James's reign was unpopular with the Protestant majority in Britain. William, supported by a group of influential British political and religious leaders, invaded England in what became known as the "Glorious Revolution."Manuscript note on fly leaf age-toned and partly water-stained at lower margin.

        Palma Nova

      Amsterdam 1704 - Esemplare tratto dal primo volume del "Nouveau Theatre de l'Italie" pubblicato ad Amsterdam nel 1704/5 e nel 1724, quale integrazione al progetto di Johannes Baleu, iniziato nel 1663, del grande "libro delle città", manchevole delle piante di gran parte della parte settentrionale della penisola. Il Blaeu, durante la sua lunga attività editoriale pubblica tre volumi sulle città italiane. Nel 1663 i primi tre, suddivisi in Stato della Chiesa, Roma e Regno di Napoli e Sicilia. Alla sua morte i suoi eredi danno alla luce altri due volumi datati 1682 incentrati sulle città del Piemonte e della Savoia, poi ristampati da altri editori nel 1693 e 1697. Il francese Pierre Mortier pubblica una ristampa nel 1704/5, intitolata "Nouveau Theatre de l’Italie". L’opera è in quattro volumi e comprende le lastre del Blaeu, ritoccate e modificate in piccola parte, integrate dall’aggiunta di numerose nuove mappe di proprio disegno, raffiguranti le città della parte settentrionale della penisola, racchiuse nel primo volume dell’opera. L’atlante del Mortier venne pubblicato con testo latino, francese ed olandese. La particolarità che differenzia le due edizioni di Blaeu e Mortier è rappresentata dal fatto che il testo non è al verso della singola mappa (che quindi è bianca nel retro), ma si trova all’inizio di ogni singolo volume. Il grande successo dell’opera diede origine ad un’ulteriore ristampa, praticamente identica, curata da R. Alberts ed edita nel 1724/5. Incisione in rame, in buono stato di conservazione. Bibliografia: Cremonini pp. 83-90. Dimensioni 460 420mm

        Morals.

      London: Tho[mas] Braddyll,, 1704. Translated from the Greek by several hands. The fourth edition corrected and amended. 5 volumes, octavo (190 × 112 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, raised bands within blind rules to spines, second compartments lettered in gilt, blind frames to sides, edges sprinkled red and blue. Engraved portrait frontispiece to each volume. Bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst, Lancashire retail chemist and discriminating collector of 18th-century literature in contemporary bindings, to the front pastedown. Tips lightly bumped and rubbed, contemporary manuscript shelfmarks inked to endpapers, vol. 1 sig. 2G browned, a few other trivial spots or blemishes. An excellent set, very well preserved indeed. A very handsome set in an unsophisticated contemporary binding. The "several hands" involved in the translation are listed in the contents to each volume; the dedicatory epistles, each addressed to a different bishop, are in order signed by Matthew Morgan, George Tullie, Charles Barcroft, Robert Midgley, and Samuel White. This edition was first published between 1684 and 1690, in five volumes. On original publication Morgan's volume "was the focus of some controversy. In the epistle dedicatory addressed to the archbishop of Canterbury, Morgan expressed the unorthodox hope that philosophers such as Plutarch might enjoy the same state of bliss as Christians in the afterlife. And in the preface a reference to 'Ashmole's rarities' and the 'insect-cabal' who cared for them displeased Robert Plot, who carried his complaint to John Lloyd, the vice-chancellor (Ath. Oxon., 711). Morgan was threatened with expulsion, but he disowned his work, the responsibility for which was assumed by John Gellibrand, the bookseller" (ODNB).

        Les Montagnes des Alpes ou sont remarques les Passages de France en Italie, le Duchè de Milan et les Estats du Duc de Savoye. .

      Amsterdam 1704 - Pieter (Pierre) Mortier (1661-1711) ed il fratello David, editori di origine francese trasferitesi ad Amsterdam, raccolsero materiale cartografico di tutte le principali botteghe del diciassettesimo secolo, ripubblicando a proprie spese, a scopo commerciale, molte delle opere della famiglia Sanson, Blaeu e di altri editori che li avevano preceduti. Alla morte di Pierre, la tipografia fu proseguita dal figlio Cornelis (1699-1783), che sposando la sorella di un altro importante editore, Johannes Covens (1697-1774), fondò la tipografia Covens e Mortier, che divenne presto la più importante firma dell’editoria cartografica in Olanda e quindi in Europa. Sotto la loro firma uscirono, postume, le pubblicazioni dei più importanti cartografi del secolo precedente, quali Sanson, Jaillot, De l’Isle, Visscher, De Wit ed altri. Il seguente corpus di mappe è tratto da uno dei loro tanti e diversi atlanti "compositi", ovvero contenenti carte di differenti cartografi. Per la prima volta incluse nella ristampa del Theatrum di Johannes Blaeu, edita nel 1704 da Pierre Mortier, sono tratte dal Atlas Nouveau pubblicato circa nel 1708 e successivamente ristampato. Incisioni in rame, coloritura coeva dei contorni, margini, leggere pieghe di carta, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Carta geografica, stampata su due fogli uniti, per la prima volta edita dal Jaillot a Parigi, qui nella successiva ristampa del Mortier. Pieter (Pierre) Mortier (1661-1711) and his brother David, French publishers who had moved to Amsterdam, collected cartographic works from all the main workshops of the XVII century, reissuing them at their own expenses in order to sell them, focusing in particular on Sanson's an Blaeu's works. When Pierre died, the family business was carried on by his son Cornelis (1699-1783), who marring the sistes of another famous publisher, Johannes Covens (1697-1774), founded the typography Covens and Mortier, due to become the most important printing business in Holland and therefore in Europe. Under their name, many work of the most important cartographers of the previous century have been reissued (Sanson, Jaillot, De l’Isle, Visscher, De Wit and others). The present corpus of maps is taken from one of their "compound" atlases, meaning with maps realized by different artists. Published for the first time in Blaeu's Theatrum, printed in 1704 by Pierre Mortie. Copperplates, contemporary outline colour, margins, light paper folds, otherwise in good condition. Tooley p. 450.

        La republique de Genes. La Principaute de Piemont, le Montferrat et partie du Duchè de Milan

      Amsterdam 1704 - Pieter (Pierre) Mortier (1661-1711) ed il fratello David, editori di origine francese trasferitesi ad Amsterdam, raccolsero materiale cartografico di tutte le principali botteghe del diciassettesimo secolo, ripubblicando a proprie spese, a scopo commerciale, molte delle opere della famiglia Sanson, Blaeu e di altri editori che li avevano preceduti. Alla morte di Pierre, la tipografia fu proseguita dal figlio Cornelis (1699-1783), che sposando la sorella di un altro importante editore, Johannes Covens (1697-1774), fondò la tipografia Covens e Mortier, che divenne presto la più importante firma dell’editoria cartografica in Olanda e quindi in Europa. Sotto la loro firma uscirono, postume, le pubblicazioni dei più importanti cartografi del secolo precedente, quali Sanson, Jaillot, De l’Isle, Visscher, De Wit ed altri. Il seguente corpus di mappe è tratto da uno dei loro tanti e diversi atlanti "compositi", ovvero contenenti carte di differenti cartografi. Per la prima volta incluse nella ristampa del Theatrum di Johannes Blaeu, edita nel 1704 da Pierre Mortier, sono tratte dal Atlas Nouveau pubblicato circa nel 1708 e successivamente ristampato. Incisioni in rame, coloritura coeva dei contorni, margini, leggere pieghe di carta, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Carta geografica della Liguria con parte del Piemonte e della Lombardia. Per la prima volta pubblicata a Parigi dal Jaillot, qui nella successiva ristampa del Mortier. Pieter (Pierre) Mortier (1661-1711) and his brother David, French publishers who had moved to Amsterdam, collected cartographic works from all the main workshops of the XVII century, reissuing them at their own expenses in order to sell them, focusing in particular on Sanson's an Blaeu's works. When Pierre died, the family business was carried on by his son Cornelis (1699-1783), who marring the sistes of another famous publisher, Johannes Covens (1697-1774), founded the typography Covens and Mortier, due to become the most important printing business in Holland and therefore in Europe. Under their name, many work of the most important cartographers of the previous century have been reissued (Sanson, Jaillot, De l’Isle, Visscher, De Wit and others). The present corpus of maps is taken from one of their "compound" atlases, meaning with maps realized by different artists. Published for the first time in Blaeu's Theatrum, printed in 1704 by Pierre Mortie. Copperplates, contemporary outline colour, margins, light paper folds, otherwise in good condition. Tooley p. 450. Dimensioni 735 545mm

        Veduta della Piazza, verso la Chiesa di S. Marco

      Lugduni Batauorum: excudit Petrus van der Aa bibliopola, urbis atque Academiae typographus ordinarius, 1704-1725 - Acquaforte e bulino di mm 359 x 275 alla battuta. Vergata forte olandese. Foglio in perfette condizioni. Filigrana giglio e scudo RS. In basso le diciture: "Veduta della Piazza, verso la Chiesa di S. Marco" "Prospectus Plateae, à parte Ecclesiae D. Marci" "Vue de la Place, du cote de l'Eglise de St. Marc"; in piccolo, in basso a destra "46"; in piccolo in alto a destra "Pag. 305 a". Il foglio proviene dalla enciclopedica edizione di Georgius Graevius "Thesaurus antiquitatum et historiarum Italiane", Leida 1704 - 1723 illustrante l'intera penisola italiana, nel tomo V dell'opera in 30 volumi, stampato da Peter Van Der AA nel 1722. Normalmente i differenti incisori dell'opera trassero spunto dalla vasta riproduzione iconografica del Carlevarijs. Johann Georg Graevius (correttamente Guava o Greffe) (29 Gennaio, 1632 - 11 Gennaio, 1703) fu uno studioso tedesco nato a Naumburg. Orientato verso studi giurisprudenziali mutò i suoi interessi verso la filologia dopo l'incontro con Johann Friedrich Gronovius. Durante il suo soggiorno ad Amsterdam, sotto l'influenza di Blondel abbandonò il luteranesimo e si unì alla Chiesa riformata, e nel 1656 fu chiamato dal principe elettore di Brandeburgo per la cattedra di retorica nella Università di Duisburg. Nel 1662 si trasferì alla Università di Utrecht, dove occupò la cattedra di retorica, e in aggiunta, dal 1667 fino alla sua morte, anche quella di storia e politica. Venne insignito di un riconoscimento speciale da Louis XIV, ma fu soprattutto apprezzato da Guglielmo III d'Inghilterra, che ne fece lo storiografo reale. Le sue due opere più importanti sono la antiquitatum Thesaurus Romanarum (1694-1699, in 12 volumi), e il Thesaurus antiquitatum et Historiarum Italiae pubblicato dopo la sua morte. Peter van der Aa (Leida, 1659 – Leida, agosto 1733) fu uno dei maggiori editori europei del diciassettesimo e diciottessimo secolo, operando circa dal 1682 a Leida insieme ai suoi fratelli. Tradusse, tra le altre opere, anche quelle di Erasmo da Rotterdam, come l'Elogio della follia e pubblicò le raccolte di storia e archeologia di J.G. Graeve e le opere botaniche di Jan Gronov. 18mo secolo

      Leiden Petrus Vander Aa 1704 - First of the Edition and first with Gronovius' curation, the volume printed in both Greek and Latin in parallel columns. A COPY WITH FINE PROVENANCE, THE MACCLESFIELD COPY WITH THEIR PLATE AT THE PASTEDOWN. The title page printed in red and black and with engraved decoration, engraved decorated capital initials at the beginning of each book, both for the Latin and Greek texts. Folio, bound at the time in full contemporary polished calf, the covers with double gilt fillet rules at the borders, the spine with raised bands gilt ruled, and with a red morocco lettering label gilt. (6 ff), 376, (6) pp. An excellent, well preserved copy, still very handsome and with slight strengthening at the hinges, the text block crisp and clean throughout, with some of the occasional browning usual to the paper stock evident on some leaves. Still as fine a copy one might hope to encounter. SCARCE AND IMPORTANT, A COPY WITH FINE PROVENANCE. THE FIRST OF THE EDITION AND A HIGHLY IMPORTANT CLASSICAL WORK. Upon his retirement Flavius Arrianus, a Greek soldier in the Roman army, completed his seven volume work on the campaigns of Alexander, and an eighth describing India was also penned, as well as his writings on the area of the Euphrates. All are included in the present volume. 'Arrian was born of Greek ethnicity in the coastal town of Nicomedia (present-day Izmit), the capital of the Roman province of Bithynia, in what is now north-western Turkey, about 70 km from Byzantium (later Constantinople, now Istanbul). He studied philosophy in Nicopolis in Epirus, under the Stoic philosopher Epictetus, and wrote two books about the philosopher's teachings. At the same time he entered the Imperial service, and served as a junior adviser on the consilium of Gaius Avidius Nigrinus, governor of Achaea and a close friend of the future Emperor Hadrian (circa 111-114). Very little is known about his subsequent career - though it is probable that he served in Gaul and on the Danube frontier, and possible that he was in Baetica and Parthia - until he held the office of Consul in 129 or 130. In 131 he was appointed governor of the Black Sea province of Cappadocia and commander of the Roman legions on the frontier with Armenia. Arrian wrote a military treatise called Ektaxis kata Alan n, which detailed battle against the Alans, and the Techn Taktik in which he described how he would organise the legions and auxiliary troops at his disposal, among which were legions XII Fulminata and XV Apollinaris. He wrote of deploying the legionaries in depth, supported by javelin throwers, archers, and horse archers in the rear ranks to defeat the assault of the Alan cavalry using these combined arms tactics. Interestingly, there seems to be no historical record of a battle between Romans and Alans that year. During this period Arrian wrote several works on military tactics, including Ektaxis kata Alan n. He also wrote a short account of a tour of inspection of the Black Sea coast in the traditional 'periplus' form (in Greek) addressed to the Emperor Hadrian, the Periplus Ponti Euxini or "Circumnavigation of the Black Sea". Arrian left Cappadocia shortly before the death of his patron Hadrian, in 138, and there is no evidence for any further public appointments until 145/6 when he was elected Archon at Athens, once the city's leading political post, but by this time an honorary one. It was here that he devoted himself to history, writing his most important work, the Anabasis Alexandri or "The Campaigns of Alexander". He also wrote the Indica, an account of the voyage by Alexander's fleet from India to the Persian Gulf under Nearchus. He also wrote a political history of the Greek world after Alexander, most of which is lost.' Arrian's history is a GREAT AND CLASSIC WORK which describes in intimate detail, the exploits of Alexander the Great, student of Aristotle and reader of Homer. By the age of sixteen, he had gained significant military experience but became estranged from his [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Conformite des Coutumes des Indians Orientaux

      1704. First Edition . (INDIA) CRÉQUINIÈRE, M. De La. Conformité des Coutumes des Indiens Orientaux, Avec celles des Juifs & des autres Peoples de lÂ’Antiquité. Brusselles: George de Backer, 1704. 16mo (4 by 6-1/4 inches), contemporary half crushed red morocco, raised bands, marbled boards and endpapers. $2200.Second edition, issued one year after the virtually unobtainable first edition, of CréquinièreÂ’s important early work proposing cultural similarities between early East Indian and Jewish cultures, illustrated with 12 spendid engraved plates after Jacobus Harrewyn depicting dramatic battle scenes and religious rituals, handsomely bound in crushed red morocco by Selz-Niedree.In Conformité des Coutumes des Indiens Orientaux (Uniformity of the Customs of Oriental Indians and those of Jews and other Ancient Peoples), French religious scholar Le Sieur de la Créquinière sought to trace “similarities between modern Indians and ancient JewsÂ…. attempting to fortify the historicity of the Old Testament by enlisting Indians as surrogates for ancient Jews (Sutcliffe, Judaism and Enlightenment, 74). De la Créquiniere, who spent a number of years in India, proposes early Hebrew and East Indian civilizations share major religious origins. To key modern scholars, Conformité “is an important work in the genesis of historical ethnologyÂ…. As the title implies, the focus is mostly on the comparison between the East Indians and the Jews, but a number of references to the ancient Romans are also madeÂ…. As Joel Reed rightly arguesÂ…. It serves both to highlight ‘the presence of transcultural religious concepts and practices,Â’ but also to diminish ‘the relative importance of any particular religion” (Lurbe, 18th-Century Ireland Society 14:133). The same publisherÂ’s 1703 first edition is very rarely found. Precedes the 1705 first edition in English. With engraved ornamental initials, head- and tailpieces. Containing 12 engraved plates after Jacobus Harrewyn, depicting religious and cultural practices, including images of funeral rites, snake charmers and a battle scene with elephants and camels. Leaf of publisherÂ’s ad at rear. Text in French. Querard IV, 372. Cioranescu 35431. Text and plates fresh with only light scattered foxing, mild edge-wear to boards. A lovely near-fine copy.

        Nova Vulterrae delineatio. Volterre Anciene Ville de Toscane, suffragante de Florence, située dans le Pisan.

      - Chez P. Mortier, Amsetrdam, 1704 circa. Incisione in rame all’acquaforte, b/n, cm 41,3 x 57 (alla lastra) più margini. Esemplare tratto dal primo volume del "Nouveau Theatre de l’Italie" pubblicato ad Amsterdam nel 1704 - 1705 e poi ancora nel 1724, quale integrazione al progetto di Johannes Blaeu, iniziato nel 1663, del grande "Libro delle città", manchevole di gran parte delle piante della parte settentrionale della penisola. L’opera del Mortier è infatti in quattro volumi e comprende le lastre del Blaeu, ritoccate e modificate in piccola parte, e integrate dall’aggiunta di numerose nuove mappe su disegno proprio, appunto relative alle città della Toscana e del Nord Italia. L’atlante del Mortier venne pubblicato con testo latino, francese e olandese e la particolarità che differenzia le edizioni del Mortier da quelle del Blaeu sta nel fatto che il testo non è al verso della singola mappa (che quindi è bianca al retro), ma si trova all’inizio di ogni singolo volume. Il grande successo dell’opera diede origine a un’ulteriore ristampa, praticamente identica, curata da R. Alberts e edita nel 1724 - '25 (Bibliografia: Cremonini, pp. 83 – 90). Veduta planimetrica di Volterra e delle aree campestri circostanti. Legenda a settantatré voci al margine inferiore. Bell'esemplare, in eccellente inchiostratura e in ampi margini, ottimo lo stato di conservazione.

        Bibliotheque Curieuse et Instructive de Divers Ouvrages Anciens & Modernes

      1704. First Edition . MÉNESTRIER, Claude-François. Bibliotheque Curieuse et Instructive de Divers Ouvrages Anciens & Modernes, de Litterature & des Arts: Ouverte pour les Personnes qui Aiment des Lettres. Trevoux: Estienne Ganeau, 1704. Two volumes in one. 12mo, contemporary full brown speckled calf, raised bands, elaborate gilt-decorated spine, later marbled endpapers. $2200.First edition of this turn-of-the-18th-century annotated bibliography of suggested readings for a liberal education, with MénestrierÂ’s famous chapter on the history of playing cards (Volume II, page 168ff.) and an original pen-and-ink drawing of the medal presented to Louis XIV in 1703 (tipped at Volume I, page 149).French Jesuit Claude-François Ménestrier was famous in his time as a specialist in organizing royal entries and fêtes, court ballets, and allegorical or spectacular events of many kinds. He was also the most widely known heraldist of his time, and today is perhaps best known as the first historian of the ballet, as well as the ""father"" of research on the history of playing cards. He conducted historical research on Trionfi cards, the origins of which he claimed to be the work of Gringonneur in 1392, and his short essay ""Des Principes des Sciences & des Arts Disposez en Forme de Jeux"" is published here for the first time. Ménestrier inherited a taste for antiquities from his great-uncle Claude, who had been employed by Cardinal Barberini as librarian charged with collecting art objects and medals. Resulting from this exposure, Claude-François became a recognized theorist of heraldry, producing a number of important publications on the origins of heraldic practices, emblems and mottoes. Having authored at least 83 separate titles, including a biography of Louis XIV—""the bibliography of Ménestrier's works is so considerable that it disconcerts bibliophiles"" (Catholic Encyclopedia). With both engraved and letterpress title pages in both volumes. Text in French. Brunet III, 1627. Graesse IV, 448. Owner signature, occasional notations, and manuscript errata sheets.A near-fine copy, with only a faint dampstaining to the bottom margins of a few gatherings, expert repair to joints and spine ends.

        Triumphs of Gods Revenge

      1704. REYNOLDS, John. The Triumphs of Gods RevengeÂ… London: C. Griffin, 1704. Folio, contemporary full brown sheep sympathetically rebacked in brown calf, raised bands, brown morocco spine label. $1600.1704 edition of ReynoldsÂ’ dramatic collection of tales of violent revenge and murder, highly influential for its insights into the psychology of crime, an inspiration for the Elizabethan drama The Changeling and hailed by Godwin as a source for his gothic novel Caleb Williams, illustrated with copper-engraved title page and elaborate wood-engravings, this association copy with the bookplate of Tage La Cour, co-author of The Murder Book (1971).“In 1621 an Exeter merchant named John Reynolds published one of the earliest bestsellers in crime reportingÂ… The Triumphs of Gods Revenge” (Borowitz, Blood and Ink, 4). This electrifying work, with its vivid tales of violent revenge, lust, murder and equally bloody punishment, is increasingly held as a turning point in crime literature, especially in its insights into the psychology of crime. Through highly detailed accounts that are “fundamentally concerned with retracing the origins of criminal rebelliousness,” Reynolds jars his readers into a sense of recognition, however hesitant, with criminals and their motives (Gladfelder, Criminality and Narrative, 34). Notably inspiring revenge dramas such as Middleton and RowleyÂ’s masterpiece, The Changeling (1622), “by 1670 Triumphs had gone into a fifth edition (the first to be profusely illustrated with woodcuts), and new editions were still appearing a century later. The curious work had not exhausted its appeal by the end of the 18th century when the English novel began to reflect social and political didacticism. William Godwin acknowledged ReynoldsÂ’s ‘tremendous compilationÂ’ as a source of inspiration for his own 1794 novel of murder and repentance, Caleb Williams” (Borowitz, 4). Stated seventh edition. With copper-engraved title page, letterpress title page printed in black and red, detailed wood-engraved pictorial chapter headings, and separate title pages for Books II-VI (each with imprint: London, Printed for Ben. Griffin and Sem. Keble. 1702). Occasional mispagination without loss of text. Early editions of this work are quite rare. Lowndes, 2078. Allibone, 1778. See STC 20924-20944; Wing 1308A-1313. Scarce association copy containing the bookplate of renowned Danish critic and author Tage La Cour, co-author of The Murder Book, An Illustrated History of the Detective Story.Text and plates generally fresh with light scattered foxing, occasional edge-wear to leaves without affecting text; slight edge-wear, rubbing to contemporary boards. An extremely good copy of this fascinating work.
