Prideaux, Humphrey.
1718. 8vo. XIII, (3), 200 pp. Contemp. blindstamped calf (spine rebacked; giltstamped red spine label). 7th edition of this "often reprinted" (DNB) treatise, first published in 1697. Its scholarship depended in particular on Pococke. "Prideaux's literary reputation rests on his 'Life of Mahomet' (1697) [... of which] the story has been told that the bookseller to whom he offered the manuscript said he 'could wish there were a little more humour in it.' No sign of humour was ever shown by Prideaux, except in his proposal (26 Nov. 1715) for a hospital in each university, to be called 'Drone Hall,' for useless fellows and students. The 'Life of Mahomet' was in fact pointed as a polemical tract against the deists. [...] Some of its errors were noted by Sale in the discourse and notes to his translation of the 'Koran,' 1734" (ibid.). From the library of the British philosopher of religion, David Arthur Pailin (b. 1936), with his bookplate. Chauvin XI, 658. Cf. Gay 3623 (1st. ed.).

Longus
nbsp; Paris. Nbsp; Paris, 1718 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. The scarce 'Regent' edition of Daphnis et Chlo, with illustrations from Benoit Audran and Philippe Charles d'Orlans. Bound in the original leather with gilt lettering and decoration. Scarce. A very important work, of which only 250 copies were said to have been printed. Here in the original leather binding and exceptional unrestored condition. The plates are engraved by Benoit Audran after Phillipe d'Orleans, Regent of France from 1715, under the instructionof Coypel in 1714, with the frontis after Coypel himself. Without 'des Petits Pieds' from the 1728 edition which sometimes is bound in later but is not meant to be in the original first edition as it was suppressed until 1728. This is clearly the original binding and is untouched. Collated, complete. With 'Bibliotheque de Mr A. Houbigant' bookseller labels on the front and rear pastedowns. Daphnis and Chlo is the only known work of the 2nd century AD Greek novelist and romancer Longus. Its style is rhetorical and pastoral, its shepherds and shepherdesses are wholly conventional, but the author imparts human interest to this idealized world. Daphnis and Chloe resembles a modern novel more than does its chief rival among Greek erotic romances. Longus was a Greek novelist and romancer, and author of Daphnis and Chlo. Very little is known of his life, and it is assumed that he lived on the isle of Lesbos, the setting for Daphnis and Chloe, during the 2nd century AD. It has been suggested that the name Longus is merely a misinterpretation of the last wo … [Click Below for Full Description]

TOURNEFORT, Joseph Pitton de (1656-1708)
London: Printed for D. Browne, A. Bell, J. Darby, A Bettesworth, J. Pemberton, C. Rivington, J. Hooke, R. Cruttenden and T. Cox 1718. First Edition in English 2 vols, 4to,xlii, 402 + (iv), 398, (18) pp, folding map by J. Senex and 152 plates and maps, some foxing to plates as usual, cont. panelled calf, corners a little worn, expertly re-backed, morocco labels. A translation by John Ozell (d.1743) of Relation d'un Voyage du Levant first published in Paris the previous year. Tournefort, one of the greatest botanists of his generation and "Royal Botanist" to Louis XIV, was sent at the suggestion of M. le comte de Pontchartrain on a 2 year journey to gather information, not only on botany but other forms of natural history, as well as on the geography, commerce and social habits of the nations through which he passed. The journey was undertaken in the years 1700 to 1702 and he was accompanied by the German botanist, Andreas Gundesheimer and the artist, Claude Aubriet. Tournefort did not live to see the work published; he was the victim of a traffic accident in Paris.

Title-page printed in red and black. A small hole to the margin of final leaf, due to a weakness in the paper. A nice, clean copy with wide margins (uncut!). (2), 70 pp. ¶ Originaludgaven. Der findes mindst 5 varianter, som adskiller sig ved de anvendte citater , dels på titelbladet, dels på dennes bagside (se Gustav Rudbecks afhandling i Nordisk Tidsskrift för Bok-og Biblioteksväsen), hvor Rudbeck opstiller 5 varianter. Her antages de eksemplarer, som har citat af Ruffus Ephesius på titelbladet, at være blandt de første tryk. Vores eksemplar har følgende karakteristika: 1. Rufus-citatet på titelbladet - 2. Titelbladets verso har kun et stort trykkermærke (uden citater).

Bogen afsluttes med en i rødt trykt fugl Phønix. - At Rufus-trykket hører til de første varianter støttes endvidere af det faktum at ordet "Vederbörandes" er sat så højt på titelbladet at der ingen afstand er me … [Click Below for Full Description]
