        Entomological archives, manuscripts and watercolours of the 18th and early 19th century, from the Remond family, of Semur en Auxois (Burgundy). The authors are Louis Remond, physician at Semur during the 18th century, F.M. Remond likewise physician and author of 'Avis aux peres et aux meres sur la vaccine', Dyon & Semur 1818, and his son Maurice Remond, lawyer at Semur. The greater part of the collection concerns the latter two who both were keen entomologists. The main objects in the collection are 125 watercolour drawings of caterpillars and their cocoons and a full translation into French of Roesel von Rosenhof's 'Der monatlich-herausgegebenen Insecten-Belustigungen'.

      . The main interest of father and son Remond is the metamorphosis of butterflies. The beautifully drawn watercolour drawings of caterpillars are of a superb quality and the animals are drawn with painstaking precision. The work is very much in the tradition of Maria Sibylla Merian who at the beginning of the same century was fascinated by the same subject and published in 1713-1717 a 3 volumes pioneering work 'Der rupsen begin ' We presume that the watercolours and the extensive notes to these plates are by Louis Remond and the translation of Roesel von Rosenhof by his son Maurice. The whole project was certainly intended to be published. In a draft (May 1808) of a letter of Maurice Remond to A.J.P. Kleemann (no. 14), the son of C.F. Kleemann and the son-in-law of Roesel von Rosenhof, Remond informs him of his intention to publish Roesel's work together with his own observations. "Mes compatriotes les francais ne connaissent guere de cet ouvrage que la beaute des figures et ignorent les details interessantes que renferme le texte, votre langue etant peu repandu en France; c'est ce qui m'a fait former le projet d'en donner une traduction que l'accompagnerai de mes propres observations". He continues asking him details of his father's life which he wants to incorporate in his work. In a reply dated 30 May 1808 Kleeman wishes him success with his project "Je souhaite la plus heureuse reussite de votre projet louable', and adds several pages of text concerning the life of his father C.F. Kleemann. The work of De Geer (no. 3) and Reaumur (no. 4) were studied in detail, notes and drawings were made as well as numerous notes of other authors. The town of Semur was a small centre of scientific studies. Not far from Semur, in Montbard, one of France's most famous naturalists Buffon was born. His main collaborator, Gueneau de Montbeliard lived in Semur. There must have been frequent contacts between the father and son Remond and these two famous scientists. Between the various documents (no. 14) and papers there is an invitation of the family Guenau inviting Mr. and Mrs. Remond for a concert (28 Aout 1797). Among the papers there is a note by Maurice Remond referring to frequent visits made to M. de Montbeliard. On the same sheet he discusses the 'Encyclopedie Methodique' published by Panckoucke and later Agasse and tells the following about the daughter of Panckoucke: 'Madame veuve Agasse, nee Pankouque, est sans doute la fille de M. Pankouque, venue a Semur dans son enfance et qui a ete inoculer par mon pere'. This interesting collection shows the keen interest in natural history, especially entomology in the French countryside during the second half of the 18th and beginning of the 19th century. This highly interesting period was characterized by rapid changes due to the French revolution. The collection comprises about 50 volumes and is composed as follows: 1) Collection de Chenilles et de quelques Papillons que j'ai peints d'apres Nature. 125 drawings (305 x 230mm) in watercolour showing caterpillars and cocoons, all within an ink drawn frame. Most of the plates show a caterpillar and its cocoon, sometimes there are more to a plate. Occasionally there is only one cocoon or caterpillar to a plate. Each plate is preserved in a folded sheet, dated 'l'an troisieme de la Republique' (1795) with the plate number and the name of the insect in French in manuscript. The collection has a manuscript title as quoted above, and 10 manuscript leaves of index. Preserved in a contemporary blue cardboard box. The collection is classified as follows: Chenilles epineuses, Papillons de jours; Chenilles rases ou demi-velues, Chenilles-cloportes & Papillons de jours; Chenilles a corne sur le dernier anneau. Sphinx; Chenilles rases; Chenilles a tubercules velus; Chenilles velues; Arpenteuses a 10 jambes; Chenilles a 12 et a 14 jambes. Each section is in a paper wrapper with the classification in manuscript. ADDED: 4 contemporary cardboard boxes with explanatory text relating to the above collection of watercolours with the following lettering: P.D.J. [Papillions de Jours] & SPH. [Sphinges] CH.R. [Chenilles rases] CH.V. [Chenilles velues] ARP. [Arpanteuses] The 4 boxes contain the full descriptions of 123 of the 125 watercolours and have corresponding numbering. Each description covers mostly several pages, and gives in neat handwriting the name of the insect together with its finding place as well as the date. The caterpillar and its life cycle are meticulously described. It describes the metamorphosis of the caterpillar into a cocoon, and the cocoon into a butterfly. These observations cover sometimes several months. Extensive reference is made to the works of de Geer, Reaumur, Merian, Roesel, Swammerdam and others, in many instances supplemented by elaborate pen drawings. 2) Traduction litterale de Roesel: Divertissement de l'histoire naturelle des insectes donne par mois. A French unpublished translation of Roesel von Rosenhof's' 'Der monatlich-herausgegebenen Insecten-Belustigung'. Nürnberg 1746-1793. This French translation in 6 folio volumes (bound in 7) in neat handwriting is bound in contemporary uniform boards and was made between 1807 and 1810. The set comprises the supplement by C.F. Kleeman and the final supplement by C. Schwarz. Roesel. Amusemens Periodiques sur les Insectes. 5 volumes (bound in 3). 4to. Contemporary boards. An abridged version in French in manuscript of Roesel von Rosenhof's' 'Der monatlich-herausgegebenen Insecten-Belustigung', probably predating the above final translation. In some cases Remond's own observations are noted as well (e.g. volume 4 page 91). The first volume has some pages inserted of an earlier draft with a nicely calligraphic title 'Amusemens Periodiques traduits par M. R(emond). Added are 3 preparatory volumes in manuscript. 1: 'Traduction abrege des amusemens periodiques, tome premier. Par M. R (emond); 2: Brouillon a garder: Histoire des Polypes d'eau douce ; 3: 'Phalenes ou papillons d'arpenteuses: classes non faites par Ernst. Notes relatives au volume qu'il faudrait faire en reunissant tout ce qu'en ont dit Roesel, Kleemann et Schwarz. Songer a Gladbach'. A manuscript of about 250 pages, translations of above mentioned authors together with his own observations. 3) De Geer, Charles. Memoires pour servir a l'histoire des insectes. (1752-78). Manuscript extracts and notes of De Geer's work, supplemented by many very attractive drawings in ink. About 240 pages. 4) Notes et observations sur les papillons tires de Reaumur. Manuscript notes (186 pages), with some drawings in ink on Reaumur's 'Memoires pour servir a l'histoire des insectes' (1734-42). Together with: Merian. Extrait du recueil des Insectes de Surinam. pp. 25 [and] Papillons, division de Linnee. Citations de beaucoup d'autres auteurs pp. 24. On page 4 Remond makes reference to his father 'Voir le manuscrit de mon pere pour les autres ordres'. 5) [ABEILLES] Essai d'un manuel pratique sur l'education des abeilles. Pour etre presente au concours ouvert par la Societe d'Agriculture du Departement de la Seine. A manuscript of 64 pages on bees. Together with a manuscript extract of 54 pages of Rozier's 'Traite sur les abeilles'. 6) Manuscript notes and extracts on various natural history topics, mostly entomological. Dates are between 1793 and 1833. Preserved in a contemporary cardboard box. 7) Classification. Methodes de divers auteurs. Manuscript notes on the classification of insects by authors such as Fabricius, Dumeril, Geoffroy, and Schaeffer. 8) Livres a acheter, achats, & notes bibliographiques. A collection of manuscript notes on books, books to be bought and purchased books, as well as bibliographical notes. Such as 'Note des principaux ouvrages sur les insectes qui se trouvent a la bibliotheque de Dyon'; 'Livres a acheter', 'livres achetes a la vente de M. Bertin'. The dates range from 1799 to 1834. 9) Bibliographie Entomologique: Auteurs....

      Paris, Jean Mariette, 1713.. Nouvelle [3ieme] Edition 4°. 5 Bll., 293 (1) S., 6 Bll. Mit 33 [von 38] Kupfertafeln und zahlreichen Holzschnitten und Vignetten. Es fehlen die 5 Tafeln A1-A5. Leder. Alter beschabter und beriebener Einband mit neuem Leder ergänzt. Neuer Rücken unter Verwendung des alten. Ordentlicher Zustand nach Restaurierung. Seiten teils angefleckt u. m. Eck-Knicken. Tafeln angefleckt, Ausklapptafeln m. Quetschfalten u. teils angerändert. Verso Tafeln teils mit gärtnerischen Handzeichnungen in Blein. Zwei Tafeln mit amateurhafter alter Ankolorierung.; 3. Erstmals im Titel des dritten Drucks wird der seinerzeit berühmte (Garten)Architekt Alexandre LeBlond als Urheber genannt, der wesentlich zur Verbreitung des französischen Gartenstils im Ausland beitrug und unter anderem das Schloß Peterhof bei St. Petersburg schuf. Erst in späteren Auflagen wird der tatsächliche Autor, Antoine Josephe Dezallier d'Argenville genannt, der wohl bei Le Blond Malunterricht genommen hatte. Während sich die Forschung weitgehend einig ist, dass Teile der Kupferstiche auf Le Blond zurückgehen, so ist umstritten, ob er auch an der Gesamtkonzeption dieses bedeutenden Gartenbuches mitwirkte. Eines der wichtigsten Gartenbücher des 18. Jahrhunderts, das bis 1771 viele Auflagen erlebte. Marie Luise Gothein widmet dem Buch allein 3 Seiten in ihrer "Geschichte der Gartenkunst", vermutet aber eher Le Blond als Autor: "Niemals wieder hat ein Buch mit so klarer faßlicher Sicherheit das Wesen eines Stiles in Lehrsätze umgegossen." Auf ihre Anmerkung, dass es den Nutzgarten etwas überheblich nur am Rande erwähnt ist zu bemerken, dass das Thema seit des Erscheinens des Epoche machenden Werkes von La Quintinie "Instruction pour les Jardins fruitiers et potagers" (1.Aufl. 1690) umfassend bearbeitet war. Haller II 94.

        L'ELOGE DE LA FOLIE

      Leyden: van der Aa, 1713. Translated from the Latin by Nicolas Gueudeville . Hardcover. 165 x 95 mm (6 1/2 x 3 3/4"). 16 p.l., 312 pp. Translated from the Latin by Nicolas Gueudeville. EXTREMELY ATTRACTIVE 19TH CENTURY FRENCH RED MOROCCO, HANDSOMELY GILT, BY HARDY (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with gilt French fillet border, the Villeneuve coat of arms at center, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with central floral sprig surrounded by small tools and with volute cornerpieces, inner gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Engraved frontispiece portraits of Erasmus, Thomas More, and Holbein, extra engraved allegorical title page, six engraved folding plates, and 75 illustrations in the text, all after Holbein. Front pastedown with red and blue morocco bookplates of Isidoro Fernandez. Vander Haerghen, p. 125; Cohen-de Ricci 348 (citing a 1731 edition with these plates). Probably washed at the time of binding (in keeping with the general preference of serious 19th century bibliophiles), one plate and one leaf with neatly repaired tears, another leaf with restored margin, occasional faint offsetting, other trivial imperfections, but an excellent copy, the text and plates especially clean and smooth, and the lovely binding very lustrous and entirely unworn. This is a beautifully bound copy of a French translation of Erasmus' classic satire "Moriae Encomium" ("In Praise of Folly"), issued originally in 1511. A scathing denunciation of corruption in Erasmus' day, it was probably inspired by Brant's "Ship of Fools," was composed in a week's time, and was written at the suggestion of Sir Thomas More (the title is a friendly play on words involving his name). A work that immediately and ever after made Erasmus famous, but one that its author later dismissed as, well, foolishness, "Folly" was printed more than a dozen times in the decade following its first appearance, and continued to be published 200 years later. It is in the form of an oration delivered by Folly herself, "praising" fools of all kinds, from poets to kings, but especially churchmen. It spares no one in its indictment of greed, violence, hypocrisy, and selfishness, including everyone from pope to beggar (for only God is truly wise). The work is central and revealing in that Erasmus spent most of his life teaching against vice and corruption of all sorts and promoting humanism and simple piety. The present edition is embellished with amusing illustrations based on the pen-and-ink drawings done in manuscript by Hans Holbein. The binding comes from the Hardy atelier, which produced luxurious volumes, many of them armorial, for a range of 19th century connoisseurs.Among other connections in the bibliopegic world, Hardy employed Jean Marius-Michel as a gilder near the start of his career. Our copy was in the distinguished collection of Spanish bibliophile Isidoro Fernandez (1878-1963), a prosperous toy wholesaler who collected French and Spanish literature in fine bindings.

        Limonium Syriacum [Statice or sea lavender]; Calamentha Angustifoliis [Small calamint]; Coronopus [Buckhorn]

      Eichstatt: 1713, 3rd edition. Hand-coloured engraving. Two losses in left hand margin. 20 5/8 x 16 3/8 inches. Basil Besler published "Hortus Eystettensis", the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613. He worked on the drawings for the 374 copper engravings over a period of sixteen years using the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and newly discovered plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler was, in modern terms, a botanist and horticulturalist, and he was familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of various plants. Besler had the good fortune to live at a time when exotic plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world. The garden that he organized and illustrated for his patron was both ornamental and experimental, and the large book he had engraved after his drawings was unique. The prints, made by a team of master engravers, are strong and exquisitely done.

        BIBLIOTHECÆ AMERICANÆ PRIMORDIA. AN ATTEMPT TOWARDS LAYING THE FOUNDATION OF AN AMERICAN LIBRARY, IN SEVERAL BOOKS, PAPERS, AND WRITINGS, HUMBLY GIVEN TO THE SOCIETY FOR PROPAGATION OF THE GOSPEL IN FOREIGN PARTS...By a Member of the said Society

      London: Printed for J. Churchill, 1713.. [2],iii,xvi,3-275,[224]pp. Quarto signed in 2s. Expertly bound to style in half russia over period marbled boards, spine gilt, morocco label. Very good. Provenance: New-York Historical Society (inked stamps). The "earliest exclusively American catalogue" (Church): one of only 250 copies printed. "White Kennett, Bishop of Peterborough, gave his extensive collection of Americana to the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts in 1712, with the intention that the gift should be accompanied by a printed catalogue of the collection. This wish was thwarted for a while by the decision to have Robert Watts compile what became an extensive and essential index of 223pp. Kennett had in the meantime continued his collecting at a pace which necessitated the inclusion of 55-page appendix and the catalogue was finally published in 1713. The result is the best catalogue of books relating to America extant, [arranged in chronological order], the titles being copied at full length with the greatest exactness, together with the name of the printer, and the number of pages in each volume. It is rich in English tracts relating to New England" - Rich. Pinelo's EPITOME DE LA BIBLIOTECA ORIENTAL I OCCIDENTAL (1629) includes a listing of books of Indian and Asian as well as American interest, but Kennett's is the first printed catalogue devoted exclusively to books relating to America. An account of the library is given in MASSACHUSETTS HISTORICAL SOCIETY PROCEEDINGS, Vol. 20 (1883). Despite Kennett's stated wish that the books be for the "perpetual use" of the members of the Society, a number were later given to the British Museum, and some "had been lost or mislaid" by the time Sotheby's prepared the auction catalogue for the sale of the Society's library in 1917.

        Opera] Q. Horatius Flaccus, Ex Recensione & Cum Notis Atque Emendationibus Richardi Bentleii - Editio Altera

      Rod. & Gerh. Wetstenios, Amstelaedami (Amsterdam) 1713 - [24], 538, [2], 539-717, [5], 5-239pp. Contemporary full calf, raised bands, spine in six panels, leather author label to second panel. Rubbed to extremities and covers, corners bumped, ink stains to fore-edge. Internally some light browning, with signatures Nnn, Uuu and Xxx browned, occasional light damp staining to top edge, old ownership inscriptions to title. Engraved frontispiece, title in red and black with engraved vignette. Moss II:17 "useful and creditable editions"; Dibdin II:101-105, "Amsterdam editions of 1713 and 1728 are preferable to the Cambridge one of 1711"; Mills College Editions of Horace 430, Dibdin also notes that the "merits of Bentley are highly extolled by Harles and Mitscherlich: 'Priceps Criticorum' is a title frequently bestowed on him" (Dibdin II:101-2). "Bentley, Richard (1662-1742), philologist and classical scholar . Bentley's Horace took longer still: less than a year for the text, but nearly seven for the textual notes, during part of which he stopped work altogether. In 1713 a second edition was printed in Amsterdam and a small edition in Cambridge with short notes, prepared by his nephew Thomas Bentley, who became a fellow of Trinity in the following year. A few days after its initial publication Thomas Hearne observed, on 29 January 1712, 'Dr Bentley's Horace is much condemn'd for the great Liberty he hath taken in altering the text' (Remarks, 3.273), and pamphlet attacks soon followed. With more than 700 changes from the vulgate, this was indeed 'unlike any edition of a Latin author ever before given to the world' (Monk, 1.316). Few of Bentley's conjectures are accepted, but many of his accepted emendations began as conjectures before he found support in manuscripts consulted for his notes. Confident in his own divination, Bentley emended 'anything inconsistent with the harmonious measures of classical poetry' (Pfeiffer, 154). Yet, even where his solutions are wrong, Bentley's grasp of textual problems and the learning he brings to bear on them are quite extraordinary. The much quoted note on Odes, book 3, ode 27, line 15'To us reason and common sense are better than a hundred codices'significantly continues, 'especially with the added testimony of the old Vatican codex'."

This is an oversized or heavy book that requires additional postage for international delivery outside of Canada and the US. Edmund Gibson was a British divine and jurist. While a conservative in church politics, and opposed to Methodism, he was no persecutor, and indeed broke with Walpole on the Quakers' Relief Bill of 1736. He exercised oversight over the morals of his diocese; and his denunciation of the masquerades which were popular at court finally lost him the royal favor.In the discussions which arose during the reigns of William and Anne relative to the rights and privileges of the Convocation, Gibson took a very active part, and in a series of pamphlets warmly argued for the right of the archbishop to continue or prorogue even the lower house of that assembly.The controversy suggested to him the idea of those researches which resulted in the Codex juris ecclesiastici Anglicani, published in two volumes folio in 1713, a work which discusses more learnedly and comprehensively than any other the legal rights and duties of the English clergy, and the constitution, canons and articles of the English Church.

T147726. The Calf's-Head-Club, whether real or legendary, was a profane Whig society established to deride the memory of Charles I. The dishes served at its chief meeting, held each 30 January, the anniversary of the king's execution, included a cod's head, to represent Charles Stuart; a pike, representing tyranny; a boar's head, symbolic of the king preying on his subjects; and calves' heads , to stand for Charles and his supporters. On the table an ax held the place of honor. After the banquet a copy of the Eikon Basilike was burnt, and a toast was made "To those worthy patriots who killed the tyrant." During the Restoration, the club met secretly. The first mention of it appears in a tract reprinted in the Harleian Miscellany, entitled "The Secret History of the Calves Head Club."& & & &

        Corona Imperialis [Crown Imperial Fritillary]

      Eichstatt: 1713, 3rd edition. Hand-coloured engraving. 21 x 17 1/2 inches. Basil Besler published "Hortus Eystettensis", the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613. He worked on the drawings for the 374 copper engravings over a period of sixteen years using the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and newly discovered plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler was, in modern terms, a botanist and horticulturalist, and he was familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of various plants. Besler had the good fortune to live at a time when exotic plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world. The garden that he organized and illustrated for his patron was both ornamental and experimental, and the large book he had engraved after his drawings was unique. The prints, made by a team of master engravers, are strong and exquisitely done.

      - Eichstatt: 1713, 3rd edition. Hand-coloured engraving. Some soiling in bottom margin and off-set from text, otherwise good condition. 21 1/4 x 17 1/4 inches. Basil Besler published "Hortus Eystettensis", the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613.

Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and "exotic" plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler and his brothers were familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of the different plants, and they lived at a time when exotic, new plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world.

        Bibliothecae Americanae Primordia. An Attempt Towards laying the Foundation of an American Library, in several books, papers, and writings, humbly given to the Society for Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts ... By a Member of the said Society

      Index by the Rev. Robert Watts. London: printed for J. Churchill, 1713. Quarto signed in 2s. (8 1/4 x 6 1/4 inches). (Lacking the front blank and blank A1 [i.e. blank leaf between the Dedication and the start of the bibliography], Kk1 and Kk2 cut down without affecting the text area but likely supplied from another copy at an early date, light dampstaining). 19th-century red half morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, the border between the leather and marbled paper ruled in gilt on the covers, spine in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second, the others with repeat decoration in gilt centering on a flower-spray tool, marbled endpapers. Rare copy of "the earliest exclusively American catalogue" (Church): one of only 250 copies printed. "White Kennett, Bishop of Peterborough, gave his extensive collection of Americana to the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts in 1712, with the intention that the gift should be accompanied by a printed catalogue of the collection. This wish was thwarted for a while by the decision to have Robert Watts compile what became an extensive and essential index of 223pp. Kennett had in the meantime continued his collecting at a pace which necessitated the inclusion of 55-page appendix and the catalogue was finally published in 1713. The result is the best catalogue of books relating to America extant, [arranged in chronological order],the titles being copied at full length with the greatest exactness, together with the name of the printer, and the number of pages in each volume...It is rich in English tracts relating to New England" (Rich). Pinelo's Epitome de la biblioteca oriental i occidental (1629) includes a listing of books of Indian and Asian as well as American interest, but Kennett's is the first printed catalogue devoted exclusively to books relating to America. An account of the library is given in the Massachusetts Historical Society, Proceedings, vol. 20 (1883). Despite Kennett's stated wish that the books were intended for the "perpetual use" of the members of the Society a number were later given to the British Museum, and some "had been lost or mislaid" by the time Sotheby's prepared the auction catalogue for the sale of the Society's library in 1917.

        VOLLSTÄNDIGES KRÄUTERBUCH, UND KÜNSTLICHE CONTERFEYUNGEN DER BÄUMEN

      Daniel Bartholom?Ulm: Daniel Bartholomä, 1713. Hardcover. Enduringly Popular Herbal in Fabulous Condition And with Princely Provenance. 311 x 210 mm (12 1/4 x 8 1/4"). 2 p.l., 566, [569]-750 pp., [12] leaves (two leaves bound out of order, missing internal blank leaf b-b-b-4). Excellent contemporary or slightly later vellum over stiff boards, yapp edges, title neatly lettered at top of spine in an old hand. Woodcut vignette on title page, ornamental headpiece and initials, historiated tailpieces, and MORE THAN 800 WOODCUT ILLUSTRATIONS THROUGHOUT, including genre scenes, many individual plants and animals, and distilling apparatus. Front pastedown with bookplate "Fürstl. Bibliothek zu Lich" (library of the princes of Lich) and small corresponding library stamp on title page (see below). Nissen 1228; Pritzel 5599; Graesse IV, 256. Very minor soiling to vellum, binding slightly splayed (as expected), a handful of leaves with faint dampstain, but AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE COPY, the period binding solid and pleasing, and THE TEXT AS FRESH AND CLEAN AS ONE COULD HOPE FOR, particularly in a natural history compendium like this. Lonicer (or Lonitzer, 1528-86) married the daughter of a printer who specialized in herbals, and he worked as a proofreader for his father-in-law while beginning his own career of writing on arithmetic, botany, and medicine, particularly public health. The work that made his name famous is the present enduringly popular herbal, first published in 1546 by the Frankfurt printer Christian Egenolff. The work went through several subsequent editions, being published as late as 1783. The text covers all three parts of the natural world and directs its remarks to a wide audience that includes physicians, apothecaries, and both rural and urban householders. The emphasis here is on how one uses animal, vegetable, and mineral substances in the production of medicinal, gastronomical, and household preparations. Lonicer provides us with one of the early descriptions of local flora, and, among his other accomplishments, he is one of the first to distinguish deciduous trees from conifers. Linnaeus honored the author with the genus Lonicera. As indicated by the bookplate described above, our copy once resided in princely surroundings, having belonged to one of two princes of Solms-Hohensolms-Lich, either Charles Christian or Charles Louis Augustus, who reigned from 1792-1803 and 1803-06, respectively. (Before these two reigns, Lich was a county, not a principality, and after them, the tiny Rhineland state was swallowed up by its neighbors.) Books employed in the maintenance of household health are almost always subjected to hard use, and it is now difficult to find an early herbal in even reasonably decent condition, let alone as remarkable as the present copy--this is all the more true of 17th and 18th century German imprints.

        Denbighshire

      London: Henry Overton, Bassett & Chiswell, c. 1713. Copper-engraved map, with full modern colour, very large marings, in very good condition, except for a stain at the bottom edge, well away from the image. 22 x 26 inches. A highly decorative map of Denbighshire by one of the greatest English cartographers Denbighshire in Wales, clearly a mountainous region, was surveyed by Christopher Saxton, which was Speed's source for this map. William Smith, Pursuivant at the College of Arms, was the apparent source for the coats of arms: one of which is that of Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, Queen Elizabeth's favorite. In the town plan of Denbigh, in the upper right corner is a circular inset displaying what appears to be a castle. It is actually an unfinished and indeed never finished church that Leicester had tried to have built in Denbigh. Apparently, his unpopularity was part of the reason the church was never completed. The map is decorated with a sea monster, a classical god on horseback, and a ship. Henry Overton's edition of this map includes the few roads that snaked their way through the county. cf. Hawkyard and Nicolson, The Counties of Britain A Tudor Atlas by John Speed, p. 73-76; Skelton, The County Atlases of the British Isles 1579-1850, Map Collector's Circle, part 1, #7 Speed and part 4, #92 & 121.
