        A New Account of Some Parts of Guinea and the Slave-Trade

      William Snelgrave was an English sea captain, slave trader, and ivory trader on the West African coast. He reportedly treated his slaves better than most traders of the day.  In what passed for notable humanity at the time,Snelgrave provided his slaves two meals a day, visits to the deck, and pipes and tobacco. He also allowed the women and children to be unchained. He was captured by pirate captains La Bouche, Cocklyn, and Howell Davis along the coast of West Africa in 1719. He was originally attacked by Cocklyn's quartermaster for failing to surrender, beaten, and shot in the arm.  What allegedly spared Snelgrave was his men crying out: "For God's sake, don't kill our captain, for we were never with a better man."  Snelgrave wrote about his captivity with the pirates. He described how Davis claimed that "their reasons for going a-pirating were to revenge themselves on base merchants and cruel commanders of ships." This may explain why Snelgrave was spared.  In 1727 he arrived at Whydah, which had just been captured by Dahomey. His account of this event, which he learned of second hand, has been the main source of many modern historians.  In 1734 he published A New Account of Some Parts of Guinea and the Slave-Trade. He was not critical of the slave trade like other traders became, and dedicated his book to the European merchants of West Africa.  Here is the first edition of Snelgrave's book.  The binding is recent and fine in 3/4 brown leather with raised spine bands and gilt rules over marbled paper-covered boards with leather corners.  The contents are bright and clean with no spotting.  The original folding map is present, properly folded, and untorn, though professionally reinforced on the back along the edges.

Forey, 1719. First edition and a very fine copy of this handsomely illustrated work. This book contains the description of the collection of models of machinery formed by Nicolas Grollier de Servière (1593-1686), a great nephew of the famous bibliophile, Jean Grolier. Written by the collector's grandson Gaspard (1677-1745), the volume contains descriptions and illustrations of numerous models of lathe work, clocks, bridges, military equipment and devices, sluices, locks, various water-raising machines, water and wind mills, pontoon bridges, an ingenious cyclometer mounted on a wheelbarrow, a revolving machine for reference books, a wheelchair, and drawing apparatus. "It is not clear whether all the mechanisms described were actual models, or whether some drawings and descriptions were included. That many were working models is, however, obvious; and these embodied details which could not be repeated on the grand scale."-Wolf, A History of Science, Technology, and Philosophy in the 16th and 17th Centuries, p. 539.

        Carte du Canada ou de la Nouvelle France, & des Découvertes qui y ont été faites

      Amsterdam: Chez L'Honoré & Châtelain, 1719. Copper-engraved map, in excellent condition. Sheet size: 18 x 21 5/8 inches. An important and fascinating map of Canada from Châtelain's celebrated 'Atlas Historique' This very finely engraved and epistemologically interesting map was one of the most important maps of Canada printed during its time, and was included in Châtelain's Atlas Historique. It is largely derived from Guillaume de L'Isle's famous 1703 map of Canada, and the geography of the Great Lakes, eastern Canada and New England is quite accurate for the time. The numerous trading posts and missions of New France and the major towns of the adjacent British colonies are labeled. The area around Hudson's Bay is shown to be inhabited by native tribes referred to as the "Christinaux or Kilistinons," while Labrador is home to the "Eskimaux." Interestingly, the map features a number of notes specifically referring to the names of explorers and the dates in which they discovered certain places, such as the reference to 'Nouveau Danemarc', discovered by the Danish explorer Jan Munk in 1619. The depiction of the upper Mississippi and Ohio basins is also quite detailed, noting the position of the French fort of 'St. Louis' or 'Crèvecouer' near the present-day site of Peoria, Illinois. Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of the map is its portrayal of the "Rivière Longue," one of the most sensational and enduring cartographic misconceptions ever devised. This imaginary river was reported to flow from the 'Pays des Gnacsitares' in the far west, promising the best route through the interior of the continent, supposedly placing one within close reach of the Pacific Ocean. It is a product of the imagination of the Baron Lahontan, an entertaining and roguish French adventurer, whose best-selling travel narrative Nouveaux voyages dans l'Amérique septentrionale (1703) convinced many of the world's greatest intellects of the existence of this mythical waterway. The text, 'Remarque Historique' that fills the northwestern part of the map describes the history of New France from the days of Jacques Cartier to contemporary times.

        MONASTIC RULES: Regula sancti Benedicti and Regula sancti Augustini episcopi

      MEDIEVAL MANUSCRIPT IN LATIN ON VELLUM WITH MODERN ILLUMINATION, Italy (Venice?), late fourteenth century with added modern miniatures. 145 x 115 mm. 79 folios, back pastedown made from a fourteenth(?)-century Italian Choir Book with music on four-line red staves, complete (collation: i4+1, ii6, iii-vi8, vii10, viii8, ix4, x8, xi6; f. 1 is inserted, ff. 2-5 belong between ff. 8 and 9), catchwords, written in cursive gothic bookhands, Rule of Benedict frame-ruled in pencil with up to 23 long lines (justification c. 115 x 65 mm.), and the Rule of Augustine written with 18 lines per page, without rubrics, on leaves ruled in hard-point; TWO MODERN FULL-PAGE MINIATURES: St. Benedict (f. 1v) and St. Augustine (f. 65v), likely added in the nineteenth or twentieth century, small red initials, some with pen decoration. BINDING: Bound in nineteenth-century burgundy velvet over pasteboard, some signs of wear, the velvet and joints worn, some cords broken, but in sound condition. TEXT: This attractively written pocket-sized manuscript contains an extremely rare pairing of texts: the two greatest foundation documents of early Western monasticism. The addition of the two modern miniatures, executed in a style based on fifteenth-century Italian miniatures adds greatly to the charm of the volume. St. Benedict of Nursia (c. 480-c. 550) is considered the founder of Western monasticism; his Rule, written c. 540, had a profound effect on the lives of religious men and women in the Middle Ages, and has remained the leading guide for communal monastic life down to the present day. The Rule of St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430), although written in the fifth century, did not have a wide influence until the late eleventh century, when it became the standard rule by which Canons Regular (secular, or non-monastic clerics) ordered their lives. Its sanity, adaptability, and the repute of its author led to its adoption by a number of monastic bodies, both active and contemplative, including the Dominicans. PROVENANCE: Combining these two monastic rules in one manuscript is unusual; normally one would not expect a Benedictine monk to have wanted a copy of the Rule of Augustine, and vice versa. Manuscripts containing both Rules appear to be exceptionally rare: the Schoenberg Database records only the present manuscript and one other (sold in 1719). The original owner of the manuscript may have been a layman, or a monk or canon with a scholarly interest in religious rules. In the fifteenth century the manuscript had a Benedictine owner, as shown by the wording of the title he added on f. 2. Sold at L’Art ancien, Zurich, Catalogue 38: Manuskripte und Inkunabeln, Bücher des XVI. und XVIII. Jahrhunderts, 17 June 1964, no. 261. Belonged to the Harry and Virginia Walton Collection, Covington, Virginia; bought c. 1964 (not recorded in Faye and Bond). CONDITION: lower margins of ff. 8 and 65 cut away and repaired using medieval parchment, with minor signs of use and age, but generally in very good condition throughout. Full description and photographs available. 388

        Relation de l'inauguration Solomnelle de Sa Sacrée Majesté Imperiale et Catholique, Charles VI. Empereur des Romains.Celebrée à Gand Ville Capitale de la Province, le XVIII. Octobre 1717

      Ghent: Augstin Graet, 1719. Hardcover. Very Good. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Tall folio [44 x 27 cm], engraved frontispiece and 6 large folding plates by Helybrouck, Berterham and Harrewyn after van Volxsom, J. Colin and Eykens, 32 pp., including title and first text leaf printed in red and black. Bound in 19th c vellum, morocco title label on spine. Provenance: Victor Massena, Prince of Essling (1836-1910). Minor toning but generally a tall and fresh copy, with the plates in fine impression. First edition of a sumptuous festival book commemorating the inauguration of HRE Charles VI in 1717 as Count of Flanders, featuring an allegorical frontispiece and 6 large folding plates, including four engravings of the extravagant fireworks displays that followed the ceremony.Graet's text provides a meticulous day-by-day account of the festivities, including the cavalcade's departure from Brussels on the 16th of October and its arrival at Mont Blandin Abbey in Ghent, the musical program of the Mass at St. Bavo, and especially the opulent splendor of the inauguration on the afternoon of the 18th at the Marché du Vendredi (Vrijdagmarkt, Ghent's largest public square), for which an enormous stage had been specially designed by the architect Jacob Colin. The inauguration engraving-nearly a full meter wide-is signed by Colin, C.Eykens and the engraver J.B. Berterham, who also executed the engraving of the interior of the Cathedral. A third plate depicts a rather grisly triumphal arch, celebrating the expansion of the Austrian Empire with pikes bearing the severed heads of Turkish generals.The spacious Vrijdagmarkt, with its central column and statue of HRE Charles V, is also the backdrop for two of the three feu d'artifice plates. Curiously, each of these engravings depicts the incendiary towers in two stages: not only during the detonation of their pyrotechnic fountains, but also prior to their lighting, when their thousands of canisters still hang intact and untouched. The most striking of these plates, by Jacob Harrewijn, depicts the towers at night, looming over the Gothic façade of the Hôtel de Ville.Though Charles VI acceded as Count of Flanders in 1713, the protracted transfer of the province from the Spanish Habsburgs to the Austrian Habsburgs delayed festivities until 1717, at which point no expense was spared to celebrate the inauguration. Graet's fête book even proclaims Charles "Roy des Espanges," though that title had already been won in the War of the Spanish Succession by Philip V.*Berlin 2959; Watanabe 2730; Landwehr Ceremonies 198; Lotz, p. 104; Salatino, Incendiary Art, pp. 33-36.

        A Compleat Collection of State Tryals and Proceedings upon Impeachments for High Treason and Other Crimes and Misdemeanours. In five volumes

      38 - London - Timothy Goodwin, 1719 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A complete first edition set of this fascinating collection of British trials from 1407 to 1709. First Edition. 'From the reign of King Henry the Fourth, to the end of the reign of Queen Anne'. 'With an exact alphabetical table to the whole'. Complete in four volumes (1719), with a supplementary fifthvolume (1738): 'A new abridgement and critical review of the state trials and impeachments for high treason; from the reign of King Richard II, down to the remarkable trial of Captain Porteous in the tenth year of the reign of his present majesty King George II'. Thomas Salmon (bap. 1679, d. 1767) was a historian and travel writer. Though he had no formal training for a profession he was said by the antiquary William Cole to have no small turn for writing, as his many productions show, most of which were written when he resided at Cambridge (BL, Add. MS 5880, fol. 198v). In 1716 or after he was recruited by the printer John Darby the younger (d. 1733) to edit what appeared as A Compleat Collection of State-tryals, in four volumes (1719), beginning with the trial of William Thorpe for heresy in 1407, and ending with the impeachment of Henry Sacheverell in 1710. Salmon had probably not led the collection of the material, but according to critics his tory political views were evident in his selection from the original sources. Salmon published abridged versions of the state trials in 1720 and again in 1737, by which time a second edition had appeared, in 1730, edited by Sollom Emlyn. Despite the improvements of Emlyn and, later, Francis Hargrave, many of Salmon's editorial decisions, particularly relating to seventeenth-century trials, survived into the edition of 180926, edited by Thomas Bayly Howell and Thomas Jones Howell.

        Carte du Canada ou de la Nouvelle France, & des Découvertes qui y ont été faites

      Amsterdam: Chez L&#39;Honoré & Châtelain, 1719. Copper-engraved map, in excellent condition. 17 1/8 x 21 7/8 inches. An important and fascinating map of Canada from Châtelain&#39;s celebrated Atlas Historique. This very finely engraved and epistemologically interesting map was one of the most important maps of Canada printed during its time, and was included in Châtelain&#39;s Atlas Historique. It is largely derived from Guillaume de L&#39;Isle&#39;s famous 1703 map of Canada, and the geography of the Great Lakes, eastern Canada and New England is quite accurate for the time. The numerous trading posts and missions of New France and the major towns of the adjacent British colonies are labeled. The area around Hudson&#39;s Bay is shown to be inhabited by native tribes referred to as the "Christinaux or Kilistinons," while Labrador is home to the "Eskimaux." Interestingly, the map features a number of notes specifically referring to the names of explorers and the dates in which they discovered certain places, such as the reference to &#39;Nouveau Danemarc&#39;, discovered by the Danish explorer Jan Munk in 1619. The depiction of the upper Mississippi and Ohio basins is also quite detailed, noting the position of the French fort of &#39;St. Louis&#39; or &#39;Crèvecouer&#39; near the present-day site of Peoria, Illinois. Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of the map is its portrayal of the "Rivière Longue," one of the most sensational and enduring cartographic misconceptions ever devised. This imaginary river was reported to flow from the &#39;Pays des Gnacsitares&#39; in the far west, promising the best route through the interior of the continent, supposedly placing one within close reach of the Pacific Ocean. It is a product of the imagination of the Baron Lahontan, an entertaining and roguish French adventurer, whose best- selling travel narrative Nouveaux voyages dans l&#39;Amérique septentrionale (1703) convinced many of the world&#39;s greatest intellects of the existence of this mythical waterway. The text, &#39;Remarque Historique&#39; that fills the northwestern part of the map describes the history of New France from the days of Jacques Cartier to contemporary times.

        The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe

      London,: W. Taylor, 1719-, 1720.. Three volumes, octavo, frontispiece and one folding plate (originally the frontispiece to vol. III) in volume one, folding map in volume two; occasional marking and foxing rarely affecting the text; generally a very handsome set, the first two volumes in contemporary sprinkled calf, the third (slightly shorter) in contemporary panelled calf, all volumes neatly rebacked to style, spines with double red morocco labels. A handsome set of all three of the Robinson Crusoe books by Daniel Defoe: the ground-breaking first work, the lesser-known sequel of the same year, and the rare second sequel, the Serious Reflections of 1720, with the appendix describing Crusoe's ultimate voyage into space, the 'Vision of the Angelick World'.This is an excellent set, with the second and third volumes present in first edition, while the first volume is the third edition. Such was the original novel's popularity that it went through four editions in four months; contemporarily formed sets of the three works are frequently composed of mixed editions. This early set of Defoe's masterpiece has uniform bookplates of Thomas Philip Earl de Grey in all three volumes, as well as the bookplates of Henry Duke of Kent in the first two.Robinson Crusoe, one of the most famous of all English books, all but founded the imaginary voyage tradition. Based on the story of the Scots sailor Alexander Selkirk, Defoe turns a genuine experience of bare survival into an elaborate tale. Indeed, Crusoe's hard-fought survival and eventual moral redemption is one of the most important and influential works of English literature, and progenitor of the genre known as the 'Robinsonade'. Defoe's novel was precursor and inspiration to endless imitations, many of which simplified the original sense of struggle and hardship, but all of which are animated by Defoe's conceit of the 'lonely human being subduing the pitiless forces of nature' (Printing and the Mind of Man).Of the three illustrations, two are signed by Clark and Pine (the latter famous for his fully engraved edition of Horace), and the map is unsigned. The famous portrait is a good impression of the first state, as is the conspectus of the island. The world map shows the extent of Crusoe's travels in the sequel The Farther Adventures, including his stop on the western most tip of New Guinea. The mapping of Western Australia clearly shows the influence of Dampier's recent discoveries.The various issue points are as follows: Vol. 1: 3rd edn, 1st state (Hutchins p. 74: lion tailpiece on p.364); Vol. 2: 1st edn, 1st issue, 2nd state (Hutchins, p. 82: A4 Breaking, verso A4 blank, U4 numbered 215); Vol. 3: 1st edn, 1st issue, 1st state (Hutchins, p.128 (p. 270 catchword THE, p.194 asterisk at foot).Blewett, 'The Illustration of Robinson Crusoe', pp. 25-9 & 195; Gibson, 'St. Thomas More... with a Bibliography of Utopiana', 663; Grolier, 41; Printing and the Mind of Man, 180; Rothschild, 775; Sargent, p. 9; Schaer et al, Utopia, pp. 180-1.

      London: A. And W. Bell, 1719. Title continues "And Made of More Use, with Very Considerable Improvements. By Geroge London and Henry Wise. To which is prefix&#39;d, an address to the Nobility and Gentry. By J. Evelyn, Esq." Pp. xxxvi, 325, contents [vii]. Engraved frontispiece, 9 further folding plates, a couple of in-text woodcuts, tailpieces etc. Superb binding, modern but in an appropriate style; quarter dark green polished calf over raised bands, marbled boards from original period marbled endpapers, with vellum tipped corners, burgundy spine label, gilt, hand-sewn head and tail bands. A beautifully crafted Binding. New end papers from genuine 18th century stock. Contents very good with clean pages. A couple of plates with tears, one with scuffing and slight chipping to outer exposed edge, just affecting lettering, all profesionally repaired, very small piece excised from page xxxi/xxxii affecting 2 -3 words only, again professional repaired. Contemporary ink stain to lower fore-edges of last few pages, but not obtrusive. An excellent copy. It is probable that the text was honed and edited by John Evelyn. Wise and London were partners in the Brompton Nursery, and were very highly regarded. This abridged text first appeared in 1699 and quickly went through a number of editions, the number of plates seemingly varying between editions but it would seem that this copy has its full complement of plates. An excellent copy.. Seventh Edition. Half Leather. Very Good. 8vo.

Second volume with wear to the corners and one board a trifle short. & & Never a common book, this set is particularly desirable due to the original trade bindings. Often considered the first English novel, Robinson Crusoe has been beloved by readers around the world since it was first published April 25, 1719. This second edition of vol. 1 appeared just weeks after the first and the second volume was published in August. One of the most widely read novels of all time; a timeless classic.

Frankfurt, Anton Heinscheidt, 1719. (issued with:) (WELLING, G.) Opus Mago-cabalisticum et theologicum. Von Uhrsprung und Erzeugung des Salzes... Frankfurt, Anton Heinscheidt, 1719. 2 volumes. Folio (336 x 205mm), pp. (xx), 584, (24); (ii), (viii), 80; with 223 plates of botanical emblems in text, 387 engraved plates and 10 engraved 'occult' plates, 9 handcoloured, in second volume; old stamp inked out on title, a fine fresh copy in contemporary German calf, spines gilt, a little wear to heads and tails of spines. First edition of this immensely appealing botanical 'museum', a compilation of engraved plates by Merian, the de Brys, etc. The botanical emblem plates are from Ludwig, Prince of Anhalt's 'Der Fruchtbringenden Gesellschaft Nahmen, Vorhaben, Gemählde und Wörter, engraved and published by Matthäus Merian in 1646. Volume two contains plates from the de Bry-Merian 'Florilegium renovatum et auctum' (Frankfurt, Matthäus Merian 1641-47), the plates of which in turn derive from several sources. These include Johann Theodor de Bry's 'Florilegium novum' (Oppenheim 1612-14), Ferrari's 'De florum cultura' (1633) and Michael Rupert Besler's 'Gazophylacium Rerum Naturalium e regno Vegetabili', (Nuremberg 1642) along with other sources. There is a further series of plates with engraved versions of the woodcuts of Mattioli, Bauhin, and others, and miscellaneous plates taken from various publications, including some ephemera which are unavailable in the originals. The final ten 'occult' plates pertain to the second title, 'Opus mago-cabalisticum', a hermetic work on the origin of salt. Valentini's assemblage of plates comprises a pictorial 'museum' of botanical images, in keeping with the spirit of another work of his, 'Museum museorum' (1704-14), a collection of 'Wunderkammer' texts and images. Valentini (1657-1729) was a physician, professor of medicine at Giessen, and a collector of natural history objects. He must also have acquired the Merian and de Bry plates. The plates are arranged as follows: two plates of floral parts and 223 emblem plates in the first volume, and 385 plates numbered 1-383, with two plates numbered 261 (a and b) and an unnumbered plate between 215 and 216; this is followed by the Welling work with its 10 plates at the end. Unfortunately, because of the emblem and florilegium plates, the Valentini has become a popular target for 'breakers', with the result that most copies that have turned up recently have been broken. Hunt 447 and 448; Johnston, Cleveland herbal, botanical and horticultural collections 344 (without the Welling); Nissen BBI, 2037.

        Discours sur la polysynodie où l'on démontre que la polysynodie, ou pluralité des conseils, est la forme de ministère la plus avantageuse pour un roi, & pour son royaume.

      Amsterdam, Villard & Changuion, 1719. 12mo. 265,+ (19) pp. Title printed in red and black. The title-leaf with browning and a large stain spot, a minor stain mark in upper margin throughout. Somewhat worn contemporary calf, blindstamped spine with raised bands, marbled edges. From the library of Ericsberg. Einaudi 931. Second, enlarged edition. The first, printed in Paris in 1718, was supressed and banned. Detta är ett viktigt idelologisk arbete som pläderar mot enväldiga ministerstyrelser och för oligarki. Idealet är ett aristokratiskt välde, en "aristomonarchie". Förslagets revolutionära radikalitet underströks t.o.m. av Rousseau. I Sverige blev hans ideéer givevis intressanta vid frihetstidens början, och bl.a. Nikodemus Tessin var influerad av honom. (Se Lennart Thanner, "Revolutionen i Sverige efter Karl XII:s död", 1953, s. 345ff.) Abbé de Saint Pierre (1658-1743) var redan känd genom ett förslag till ett folkens förbund i samband med freden i Utrecht. Första upplagan av "Discours sur la polysynodie" utkom i april 1718 och väckte stort uppseende. Den konfiskerades, författaren uteslöts ur Franska akademien och boktryckaren kastades i fängelse. Denna andra utökade upplaga kom ut i Amsterdam 1719

        THE LIFE AND STRANGE SURPRIZING ADVENTURES OF ROBINSON CRUSOE, OF YORK, MARINER: WHO LIVED EIGHT AND TWENTY YEARS ALL ALONE IN AN UN- INHABITED ISLAND ON THE COAST OF AMERICA, NEAR THE MOUTH OF THE GREAT RIVER OROONOQUE; HAVING BEEN CAST ON SHORE BY SHIPWRECK, WHEREIN ALL THE MEN PERISHED BUT HIMSELF. WITH AN ACCOUNT OF HOW HE WAS AT LAST AS STRANGELY DELIVER'D BY PYRATES ... [with:] THE FARTHER ADVENTURES OF ROBINSON CRUSOE; BEING THE SECOND AND LAST PART OF HIS LIFE, AND OF THE STRANGE SURPRIZING ACCOUNTS OF HIS TRAVELS ROUND THREE PARTS OF THE GLOBE [with:] SERIOUS REFLECTIONS DURING THE LIFE AND SUPRISING ADVENTURES OF ROBINSON CRUSOE: WITH HIS VISION OF THE ANGELICK WORLD

      London: Printed for W. Taylor at the Ship and Black Swan ... 17191720. London: Printed for W. Taylor, at the Ship and Black- Swan ..., 1719 - 1720.. Three volumes. [4],364pp.plus engraved frontis; [8],373,[11]pp. plus engraved folding frontis map; [16],270,84,[2]pp. plus engraved folding frontis. Octavos. Contemporary tree calf, neatly rebacked and recornered to style, with the original gilt backstrips laid down, marbled edges and endsheets. Two tasteful bookplates in each volume on front pastedown, pencil notes erased from one terminal binder's blank, expert reinforcement on verso of one fold to frontis map in second volume, some faint spots to B1-2 in the second volume and one small spot on title of same volume, affecting one letter, but a very good set. Third edition of the first work, Hutchins' issue 3c; first edition 2nd state (with advert on A4v) of the second work; and first edition of the third (state with catchword 'The' on p. 270). A quite respectable set of one of the most celebrated of all 18th century English novels and an essential text in the literature of the imaginary voyage, including the two supplementary narratives. The first work was immediately popular and went through four editions within the four months after publication; the second also struck a chord with the public, with a second edition appearing the same year. The third part, however, languished and was not reprinted by Taylor, and its appearance in the subsequent, often abridged, editions of the full narrative is generally fragmentary. Crusoe's ADVENTURES was both pirated in its time and imitated, serving as the progenitor of the subset of imaginary voyages christened "Robinsonades." It established the relative fortune of its publisher, though not of its author, who sold his interests outright to Taylor. HUTCHINS, pp. 74-8; 97-112; and 122-8. GROLIER ENGLISH HUNDRED 41. PRINTING AND THE MIND OF MAN 180.

      Constantin Pisarri Complete with half-title, title in red and black, and printer's device on colophon. With 3 engraved plates (1 folding). Contemporary vellum-backed boards; light marginal browning. An excellent copy from the library of Melvin Edward Jahn, with his book-label. First edition of this valuable descriptive catalogue of Graminiae, which contains wheat, maize, barley and rye, the plant family most economically useful to man. More than three hundred species have been noted by the author, many indigenous to the area around Bologna and others collected on his travels. Monti provides a botanical description and treats the medical properties of each plant. He also makes references to earlier studies, and includes a bibliography, commencing with Pliny's work of 1470. Monti (1682-1760) was a professor of botany and natural history at the University of Bologna; the genus Montia is named in his honor. He wrote a number of works on materia medica, and was quite active with the large botanical garden in Bologna.

The catchword on page 270 in our copy is "The" rather than "A" which would be correct for the following page (A Vision), but according to Hutchins "The" does not indicate an earlier printing as he is able to prove that both the copies with "The " and those with "A" are from the same first printing and are both therefore first issues. Both copies are sturdily bound with no loose pages. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.
