        Histoire de la Milice françoise, et des changemens qui s'y sont faits depuis l'éstablissement de la Monarchie dans les Gaules, jusqu'à la fin du Regne de Louis le Grand.

      70 engraved plates. 3 p.l., xxxviii, 626 pp.; xx, 770 pp., one leaf of errata, approbation, & privilege. Two vols. Large thick 4to, fine cont. polished tree calf (head of spine of Vol. I very slightly chipped, minor foxing), spines richly gilt, red morocco lettering pieces on spines. Paris: D. Mariette et al., 1721. First edition and a splendid set from the Macclesfield library. Daniel (1649-1728), a Jesuit historian, wrote an extremely successful history of France which first appeared in 1713 and a number of other works of history and commentaries on the writings of Descartes. This is the standard work on the history of militias in France which had played such an important role in the earlier history of that country. Before 1688, France has three kinds of organized military forces which were not professional in character nor employed full-time: the urban militia, the militia active in the countryside, and the militia protecting the coast line and borders. By the end of the 17th century, the introduction of firearms began to favor the professional soldier and militias began to lose their effectiveness. Increased fire power -- muskets, pistols, and cannons -- became the domain of the highly trained professional soldier. In 1688, François de Louvois, the secretary of war for Louis XIV, created royal militias to serve as auxiliary forces to the professional army. Their roles were partly to find drafts for and partly to augment the regular army. The plates depict battle formations, weaponry, devices used in sieges, fortified cities, other fortifications, bombs, uniforms of the various militias, etc. Fine and handsome set from the Macclesfield library with embossed stamp on titles and the North Library bookplate. Engraved armorial bookplate of Lt. Gen. G.L. Parker, the fourth Earl of Macclesfield. ❧ Brunet, II, 487-"Ouvrage rempli de recherches curieuses." .

        Pennsylvania Dutch manuscript heart-shaped Valentine].

      Pennsylvania, February 3, 1721. - Single sheet, (3 ½ x 3 ¼ inches). Very fine Fraktur manuscript Valentine card with floral embellishments and depiction of a crane, in pen and red, black, and green ink and watercolor wash heightened with gum arabic. Provenance: The Dr. Frank H. Sommer III Trust. Doyle sale 13BP04, November 25, 2013, Lot 296. ORIGINAL FRAKTUR MANUSCRIPT VALENTINE. This beautifully lettered and decorated Valentine is cut in the shape of a heart, with a ten-line poem as well as the date "Anno 1721 Den 3 February," and a small figure of a crane at the bottom identified as "Ein Kranich" ("a crane"). Approximate transcription follows: "Kunst und liebe tot defacten kan datselve lich figmacten Luft zur Lugend mitzig machet / Kunst und Weiss- heit verurfachet / dass man Pommt zu hohen- Dingen / Drumuss man nach Lugent ringen. Man soll nichts zum Lernen spahren / Felts schon schnoer in ersten Jahren / Ists dochleicht hernach und brin- get / Dass uns unsser Heil gelin- get." Fraktur work was used to decorate many different kinds of manuscripts and documents made by the mainly German-speaking communities of Pennsylvania. Fraktur is also the name of the specif-ic style of calligraphic lettering used on these documents, as here. It was a popular typeface in German-speaking parts of Europe from the mid-1500s until the 1940s. In 1683, upon William Penn's invitation, Mennonites from Krefeld, Germany, settled near Philadelphia. Others fol-lowed, coming from Germany, Switzerland, and Holland.

Latin text. 4to, approximately 255 x 195 mm, 10 x 7¾ inches, title pages printed red and black with large engraved pictorial printer's device, 72 folding engraved plates (14 more illustrations in Volume I than were in the first edition), mostly of scientific apparatus, especially optical instruments, pages: (26), 345, (4); (8), 199, (13 index + folding table), bound in full blind panelled vellum, raised bands and blind decoration to head and tail of spine, old hand lettered title and author to spine.

'sGravesande (1688-1742) a Dutch mathematician and philosopher, is described by the DSB as "the earliest influential exponent of Newtonian philosophy in continental Europe". He spent a year in London in 1715 having been sent there as part of a Dutch mission to congratulate George I on his accession and there he made contact with the English Newtonians Desaguliers and John Keill and met Newton himself. In 1717 he was appointed professor of mathematics and philosophy at Leiden and began to prepare his Introductio ad philosophiam Newtoniam which was first published in 1720-21. This important and popular work reached 24 editions by 1760. See Gjertsen, The Newton Handbook, page 235: "It was a work which emphasised the experimental rather than the mathematical side of Newton's thought and as such must have introduced many throughout Europe to the basic principles of the new science."

        The Virtue and Use of Coffee, with Regard to the Plague and Other Infectious Distempers: Containing . . . The First Knowledge of it, Down to the Present Time

      London: Eman. Matthews and W. Mears, 1721. First Thus. Soft Cover. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Complete with 34 text pages, frontispiece, and five pages of advertisements in the rear. Soundly bound within a marbled card wrapper. Clean pages. Wear along the spine. Richard Bradley, a Fellow of the Royal Society and Professor of Botany at Cambridge first published most of this text as A Short Historical Account of Coffee in 1714 ("all trace of which appears to be lost," Ukers, All About Coffee, p.42). He republished it in 1721 with more medical information and this revised title to take advantage the terror gripping England as a result of the Great Plague of Marseille. In addition to discussing the supposed medical effects of coffee, Bradley provided a bibliography of the few European writings about the plant and drink entertainingly annotated with his own observations and opinions. He also included instructions for preparing the drink (including drying, roasting, grinding and boiling) just as did "Persons of Distinction in Holland." As a frontispiece, Bradley provided a folding plate with an illustration of "The Coffee Plant." Scarce outside of institutions. As of 2016, although OCLC shows 26 institutions hold undamaged copies, none are currently available for sale within the trade, and only five sold at auction within the last 80 years per ABPC and Rare Book Hub.

        THE CHRISTIAN PHILOSOPHER: A COLLECTION OF THE BEST DISCOVERIES IN NATURE, WITH RELIGIOUS IMPROVEMENTS

      London, 1721. Contemporary paneled calf, neatly rebacked in matching style, spine gilt, leather label. Minor toning and foxing, a very good copy. This is one of the most curious controversial books in the vast Mather canon. Although Mather's exploration herein of the wonders of nature is intended to exhibit God's presence in the world, the book is essentially scientific and was apparently written with a self- aggrandizing motive. Mather had a flair for science, having helped to introduce smallpox inoculation into America, and in 1714 he began using the initials of a Fellow of the Royal Society after his name. According to Stevens, Mather wrote a letter of thanks to the Society and continued correspondence, but there was much contemporaneous skepticism about whether he had the right to use the august "F.R.S." This work, written while the controversy was still hot, was apparently intended to demonstrate Mather's competence and eagerness to be America's first Royal Society member. Mather's most substantial and personally significant work of science. HOLMES, COTTON MATHER 52-A. SABIN 46253.

      - Fischer von Erlachs; in der Platte in deutscher und französischer Sprache betitelt und bezeichnet; Tafel XV aus dem zweiten Band von Fischer von Erlachs monumentalen Opus "Entwurff Einer Historischen Architectur" Wien 1721 [Das dekorative Blatt am rechten Rand mit Braun- und Feuchtigkeitsflecken, die bis zu 9cm in die Darstellung reichen. Copper engraving on the right side brownspotted and dampstained.] "Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach (1656-1723) begründete mit seinen Bauten in Wien und Salzburg die führende Stellung des deutschen Spätbarocks in Europa. Zu seinen bedeutendsten Leistungen in Wien zählen die Karlskirche, die Bibliothek der Hofburg, das Winterpalais des Prinzen Eugen und das Palais Trautson. In Salzburg ist er vor allem mit Kirchenbauten wie der Dreifaltigkeits- und der Kollegienkirche hervorgetreten. Neben seiner europäischen Bedeutung als Architekt steht der gleichwertige Theoretiker Fischer von Erlach. Mit seinem 1721 veröffentlichten Stichwerk "Entwurff einer Historischen Architectur" führt er die Tradition der klassischen Architekturtraktate zwar fort, entwirft aber zugleich seine Vision einer Weltarchitektur, die in seinen eigenen Werken gipfelt. Seine eigenen Bauten stellt er nicht nur gleichberechtigt neben die berühmten Werke der Antike, in ihnen zieht er die Summe aller bisherigen Baukunst und übertrifft dadurch sogar die Antike." (www.barockmuseum.at). In den ersten 3 Teilen werden historische und legendäre Bauwerke und Städte gezeigt bzw. rekonstruiert, darunter die Sieben Weltwunder (die Hängenden Gärten in Babylon, die ägyptischen Pyramiden, das Wunderbild des Olympischen Zeus v. Phidias, das Mausoleum zu Halikarnassos, der Tempel der Artemis zu Ephesos, der Koloss v. Rhodos, der Leuchtthurm auf der Insel Pharos), die Villa des Nero, der Diokletianspalast in Split, Palmyra, Stonehenge, die Isola Borromea im Lago Maggiore, ungarische und türkische Moscheen, Mekka und Medina, Siam, Peking und Nanking. Im wichtigsten 4. Teil sind die eigenen Bauten Fischers v. Erlach abgebildet, z. B. Schönbrunn, die Karlskirche, die Paläste des Prinzen Eugen, des Fürsten Trautson u. des Grafen Gallas in Wien, die Liebfrauenkirche und die Neue Favorite in Salzburg usw. Diese Kupfer sind deshalb von hohem dokumentarischem Wert, weil die tatsächlichen Ausführungen nicht wesentlich von den hier gezeigten Entwürfen abweichen. Teil 5 enthält Abbildungen antiker und moderner Vasen, zum Teil aus Schloß Mirabell in Salzburg. Die ausführenden Stecher waren J. U. Kraus, J. A. Delsenbach, C. Engelbrecht u. J. A. Pfeffel.

        Pensées diverses, écrites à un Docteur de Sorbonne, à l'occasion de la Comète qui parut au mois de Décembre 1680. Nouvelle édition corrigée. [Tome troisième-quatrième] Continuation des Pensées diverses, ecrites à un docteur de Sorbonne, à l'occasion de la comete qui parut au mois de decembre 1680. Ou Réponse à plusieurs difficultez que Mr *** a proposées à l'auteur. Nouvelle édition corrigée.

      chez les Héritiers de Reinier Léers, A Rotterdam 1721 - 4 vol. in-12 de (30) pp. 1 f.bl. 432-(12) pp. ; (4)-438 pp. 1 f.bl. (12) pp. ; (32)-564-(18) pp. ; (16)-671-(23) pp., veau brun, dos orné à nerfs, pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge, tranches jaspées (reliure de l'époque). Edition définitive, la cinquième, qui comprend les Pensées diverses, les Additions et la Continuation des Pensées diverses. « C'est à l'occasion d'une comète qui apparut en 1680 que Bayle écrivit cet ouvrage où il développa certaines de ses idées philosophiques. Il le composa dans un style de catholique zélé car il espérait le faire paraître à Paris avec une permission ou un privilège, mais apprenant que M. de la Reynie, lieutenant général de police, ne l'autoriserait pas, il renonça à ce projet et son texte fut, peu après, publié par Reinier Leers lorsque Bayle se fixa à Rotterdam. » (Sauvy) L'édition originale parut en 1682 sous le titre Lettre sur la Comète (Cologne, Pierre Marteau) reprise l'année suivante à Rotterdam sous le titre de Pensées diverses ; les Additions parurent pour la première fois en 1694 et la Continuation en 1704. Tout en s'élevant avec force contre les préjugés qui attribuent aux comètes une puissance mystérieuse sur les événements de la Terre, Pierre Bayle (1647-1706) passe en revue tous les excès produits dans tous les temps par les superstitions, et il en conclut que l'athéisme est peut-être moins funeste dans ses effets que l'idôlatrie. Les ennemis de Bayle crièrent partout qu'il s'était fait le champion avoué des athées ; l'entrée du livre en France fut donc interdite, ce qui ne l'empècha pas pourtant d'y pénétrer et ne servit peut-être qu'à lui assurer un plus grand nombre de lecteurs. Bel exemplaire. Ex-libris manuscrit à l'encre du temps « GFerdinand a Schonberg » répété sur chaque tome.

      - Fischer von Erlachs; in der Platte in deutscher und französischer Sprache betitelt und bezeichnet; Tafel V aus dem ersten Band von Fischer von Erlachs monumentalen Opus "Entwurff Einer Historischen Architectur" Wien 1721 [Das dekorative Blatt am rechten Rand mit Braun- und Feuchtigkeitsflecken, die bis zu 12cm in die Darstellung reichen und geglätteter Knickfalte. Am unteren linken Büttenrand mit einem hinterlegten minimalen Einriss (ca.1,5cm). Copper engraving on the right side brownspotted and dampstained. In the upper right corner with smoothed kink fold.] "Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach (1656-1723) begründete mit seinen Bauten in Wien und Salzburg die führende Stellung des deutschen Spätbarocks in Europa. Zu seinen bedeutendsten Leistungen in Wien zählen die Karlskirche, die Bibliothek der Hofburg, das Winterpalais des Prinzen Eugen und das Palais Trautson. In Salzburg ist er vor allem mit Kirchenbauten wie der Dreifaltigkeits- und der Kollegienkirche hervorgetreten. Neben seiner europäischen Bedeutung als Architekt steht der gleichwertige Theoretiker Fischer von Erlach. Mit seinem 1721 veröffentlichten Stichwerk "Entwurff einer Historischen Architectur" führt er die Tradition der klassischen Architekturtraktate zwar fort, entwirft aber zugleich seine Vision einer Weltarchitektur, die in seinen eigenen Werken gipfelt. Seine eigenen Bauten stellt er nicht nur gleichberechtigt neben die berühmten Werke der Antike, in ihnen zieht er die Summe aller bisherigen Baukunst und übertrifft dadurch sogar die Antike." (www.barockmuseum.at). In den ersten 3 Teilen werden historische und legendäre Bauwerke und Städte gezeigt bzw. rekonstruiert, darunter die Sieben Weltwunder (die Hängenden Gärten in Babylon, die ägyptischen Pyramiden, das Wunderbild des Olympischen Zeus v. Phidias, das Mausoleum zu Halikarnassos, der Tempel der Artemis zu Ephesos, der Koloss v. Rhodos, der Leuchtthurm auf der Insel Pharos), die Villa des Nero, der Diokletianspalast in Split, Palmyra, Stonehenge, die Isola Borromea im Lago Maggiore, ungarische und türkische Moscheen, Mekka und Medina, Siam, Peking und Nanking. Im wichtigsten 4. Teil sind die eigenen Bauten Fischers v. Erlach abgebildet, z. B. Schönbrunn, die Karlskirche, die Paläste des Prinzen Eugen, des Fürsten Trautson u. des Grafen Gallas in Wien, die Liebfrauenkirche und die Neue Favorite in Salzburg usw. Diese Kupfer sind deshalb von hohem dokumentarischem Wert, weil die tatsächlichen Ausführungen nicht wesentlich von den hier gezeigten Entwürfen abweichen. Teil 5 enthält Abbildungen antiker und moderner Vasen, zum Teil aus Schloß Mirabell in Salzburg. Die ausführenden Stecher waren J. U. Kraus, J. A. Delsenbach, C. Engelbrecht u. J. A. Pfeffel.

First edition in French, first published in Latin in 1705, an English edition was published in 1712, and a German in 1715. "Edited by David Durand Â… this important work by the Dutch orientalist Reeland sets out to correct misconceptions in the popular about Islam, and to bring a better understanding of it. The work was based on Reeland's own collection of Arabic manuscripts and those to which he had access Â…" (Atabey). Considered by Hamilton to be a "truly objective study of Islam Â… besides reproducing a Muslim confession of faith, it gives a detailed account of Muslim practices, adding elegant representations of the ritual gestures of prayer by the Dutch engraver Jan Goerce" (The Arcadian Library, pp.238-9). An excellent copy of this important eighteenth-century study.

        THE LAWS OF THE BRITISH PLANTATIONS IN AMERICA, RELATING TO THE CHURCH AND THE CLERGY, RELIGION AND LEARNING. COLLECTED IN ONE VOLUME

      London: B. Cowse, 1721. Folio. Contemporary paneled calf, rebacked, spine gilt with raised bands, morocco labels. Endpapers renewed. Very good. Trott, the grandson of Bermuda founder Perient Trott, first came to South Carolina in 1699 as the attorney general of the colony, and was appointed chief justice in 1703. During his time on the bench in South Carolina, he is perhaps best remembered as the Vice Admiralty Judge during the trial of notorious pirate Captain Stede Bonnet. Upon his retirement from public service, he spent the rest of his life as a legal scholar. With the present work, Trott joined his interests in the law with his years of attempting to establish the Church of England within the colonies. Trott's LAWS comprise the collected ecclesiastical acts from South Carolina (pp.1-77), North Carolina (pp.83-104), Virginia (pp.113- 161), Maryland (pp.171-221), Pennsylvania (pp.227-243), New Jersey (pp.249-257), New York (pp.263-280), Connecticut (pp.285-298), Rhode Island (pp.303-304), Massachusetts-Bay (pp.311-337), New Hampshire (pp.343- 348), Barbadoes (pp.353-370), Antego (pp.375-380), Nevis (pp.385-390), the Leeward Islands (pp.395-403), Jamaica (pp.409-426), and Bermuda (pp.431-435). Each section devoted to a colony is preceded by its own sectional title. Importantly, in the Preface, Trott details his sources for each colony and in many cases they were compiled from original manuscript records. For his work he was awarded a Doctor of Civil Law degree by Oxford University in 1720 and a Doctor of Laws degree from the University of Aberdeen in 1726. The 1721 first edition of this work is particularly rare; a second edition was published in 1725. We find no other example of this work on the market in the last half century.

        A DEFENCE OF THE NEW-ENGLAND CHARTERS

      London: Printed by W. Wilkins..., 1721. 12mo. Modern red morocco, spine gilt. Title-leaf and following two leaves dampstained, light scattered foxing, but still a very good copy. This copy bears the contemporary ownership signature of Stephen Sewall on the titlepage. Sewall was clerk of the Salem witchcraft trial court and his brother, Chief Justice Samuel Sewall, sat at the Salem witchcraft trials. First edition of this "notable contribution to colonial political thought, voicing the theory that, by reason of their contractual nature, these charters could not now, after the colonists had fulfilled their obligation by redeeming the wilderness, be abrogated and government restored to the Crown" (Howes). This and later editions of 1745 and 1765 no doubt provided fuel for the fire then well kindled. HOWES D554, "b." SABIN 21197. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 721/63. COHEN 6521 (Boston ed).

His son Jacobus then included readings from Florentine manuscripts which much improved the original. Graesse VII, p. 9-10, note, states that this edition is preferable to an earlier one that contained a similar selection, Amsterdam 1672, and in which the text was "quelquefois chang sur des conjectures, mais sans consulter des mss. ..." In the edition at hand, "les mss. de Florence ont t collationns plus exactement."

        Nouvelle Relation Contenant les Voyages de Thomas Gage dans la Nouvelle Espagne... Nicaragua... Havane... avec la Description de la Ville de Mexique.

      Amsterdam: Paul Marret, 1721, 1694. 12mo. Two vols. (20), 200; 178; and (10), 316 pp. b/w folding plates and maps. Gage was a famous English traveler who was sent to South America in the 1620s by the Spanish Dominicans. He lived and traveled in Guatemala, Nicaragua, the Indies and southern America for a decade. When he returned to England he wrote about his experiences in “The English-American His Travail By Sea and Land.” According to the DNB “His account of the wealth and defenceless condition of the Spanish possessions in South America excited the cupidity of the English.” His work was translated into French in 1676. This is a mixed set of that work, with maps by famed French cartographer Sanson. See Sabin 26307 and note to Sabin 26303. Clean copies in old full calf. Both volumes have been rebacked and varnished.

        A Philosophical Treatise on Husbandry and Gardening: being a new method of cultivating and increasing all sorts of trees, shrubs, and flowers. A very curious work: containing many useful secrets in nature, for helping the vegetation of trees and plant, and for fertilizing the most stubborn soils ... Translated from the High-Dutch, with remarks ... The whole revised and compared with the original, together with a preface, confirming this new method, by Richard Bradley

      London: printed for P. Vaillant ... and W. Mears and F. Clay, 1721. Quarto. (11 1/16 x 9 inches). Title printed in red and black. 22 engraved plates (13 double-page). Contemporary speckled calf, spine in seven compartments with raised bands, red morocco lettering-piece in the second, the others with repeat decoration in gilt (joints split, corners neatly repaired) First edition in English, with notes by Richard Bradley, of the "first treatise on cuttings and graftings" (Hunt). In 1715-16, Agricola, a German doctor who practiced in his native city of Ratisbon, published some details of his important new method of propagating plants. "This consisted in grafting twigs and boughs to pieces of the same tree, using a plaster containing turpentine and pitch, mixed by means of heat, which he termed vegetable mummy. He also said that if 'vegetable mummy' were used to seal the open end of a cut bud, twig, or leaf, this would produce a root and develop into a new plant or tree. He thus claimed to be able to propagate as many new plants as a plant had twigs or even buds and leaves" (Henrey). Agricola subsequently published a book, in two parts, on the same subject "Here Agricola gives a detailed description of his method and its practical possibilities ... This work proved extremely popular and was translated into French, English, and Dutch. The French translation was probably by Antoine Augustin Bruzen de la Martinière, and it was translated from this French version into English. Bradley Bibliography III, p.152; Henrey II, pp.443-446 & III, 41; Hunt II, 452.

        Pasquin's Windkaart op de Windnegotie Van't Iaar 1720

      1721. 54 engraved cards (each 3 3/8 x 1 15/16 inches), comprising 52 playing cards, 1 title card and 1 publisher's card, each backed onto 19th-century heavy card. All contained within a single early 20th-century brown straight-grained morocco slipcase modelled as a book and titled in gilt on 'spine' Provenance: Later ownership notation in a single unidentified hand on verso of each card. John Law's Comeuppance or: the Mississippi Bubble in Playing Cards - an attractive and extremely rare complete set of early-18th century playing cards, rooted in a great early American land scheme. Second edition, after the first of the previous year. The first edition was issued with a title card reading, April Kaart of Kaart spel Van Momus naar de nieuwste Mode . Cards in both editions consist of an allegorical image set above humorous couplets. While the images in each set are primarily the same, the couplets are entirely different. According to Hargrave, a booklet was also issued with these cards, but it is absent here. This ornamental set of playing cards in the French suit system (hearts, clubs, diamonds, spades) lampoons John Law's Mississippi Bubble scheme, the South Sea Company, and other parties engaged in the disastrous speculation. The publisher's card bears the image of a large cock, which also appeared on John Law's arms. "John Law's Mississippi Bubble scheme started about 1717, was at its height in 1719, and collapsed in 1720 causing Law to flee from Paris. There are several allusions to the South Sea Company. On the three of spades, the three companies, the South Sea, the Mississippi, and the West Indian, sit side by side in a swing. On the four of spades, Madame la Petite [represented here as a black cat] is supposed to mean the wife of Thomas Knight, the cashier of the South Sea Company, who bought his shares in her name" - Hargrave. This series of cards can also be found as a plate in the Het Goote Tafereel der Dwaasheid ... (Amsterdam, 1720), the great Mississippi Bubble satirical plate book. Here the engraved area of the cards is slightly taller, which confirms the present set is from an entirely different engraving than that which appears in the book. This set is the second in a series of satirical Dutch playing cards. A set issued in 1719 made fun of a series of Papal scandals and was suppressed by the Catholic Church. A later set, done in 1740, satirized the various peoples of the world. Cary Collection, HOL 26; D. Hoffman 1973, pp.45,47; Museum Willet Holthusyen 1976, p.73, no. 62; Lady Schreiber 1892, I:12; Hargrave, pp.163-65.

Complete with frontispiece and portrait bound facing each other, (ii) subscriber list and errata, (i) preface by Leoni, (i) biography of Palladio, (iv) preface, 54 pp and 43 plates, title page for the Second Book, 57 - 93 pp, 61 plates, title page for the Fourth Book ( misplaced at the beginning of the Third Book ), (iii) preface, 4 - 37 pp, 22 plates, title page for the Third Book ( misplaced ) 40 - 42 preface, 43 - 90 pp, 104 plates, (iv) Table of Contents with errata. Excellent condition with some scratches to the covers, very tight, slight off set on the blank margin of the portrait from the facing frontispiece, slight margin foxing and small ragged piece out at bottom of both not nearly affecting the engravings, small private blind stamp at bottom blank margin of frontispiece. The plates are very nice with generally little or no foxing on the margins save the last six and the Table of Contents which are more heavily foxed. One interior plate has some moderate foxing at the top ( see photo ). One double plate has an abrasion on the blank fore edge. Slight foxing to some text leaves and slight offset to some from the densely engraved facing plate. Overall a very tight, pleasing copy with the plates in mostly lovely condition. Please note this will only be shipped to an address in the United States. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
