        The history of the Royal Society of London, for the improvement of natural knowledge. Third edition.

      London:: Printed for Samuel Chapman, 1722., 1722. 4to. [xvi], 438, [2] pp. Title printed in red & black. Frontispiece engraved coat-of-arms of the Royal Society, 2 engraved folding plates, ad ["Benjamin Workman, Next Tom's Coffee-House ... to Mr. Hauksbee)"]. Original full paneled speckled calf; neatly rebacked to match, preserving original leather spine gilt-stamped label. Bookplate of ALLAN A. C. SWINTON, Fellow of the Royal Society. ALAN ARCHIBALD CAMPBELL-SWINTON'S COPY WITH HIS BOOKPLATE. Third edition (first issued in 1667, with later editions in 1702, 1722, 1734). This historically important work was first issued to record the first history of the Royal Society and to repute the attacks levied against the Society by Henry Stubbs [or Stubbe], who contended that Spat's work was "destructive to the established Religion and Church of England." Abraham Cowley, on the other hand, praised the author and his work in an ode to the Royal Society which prefixes the main work. Further, Dr. Samuel Johnson declared it "one of the few books which selection of sentiment and elegance of diction have been able to preserve, though written upon a subject flux and transitory." - DNB. "... first published in 1667. Its 438 pages constitute a large and puzzling work on an institution barely seven years old when the book appeared. Since its concerns and their implications touched all major aspects of contemporary affairs, not least religion, the infant Royal Society quickly became involved in controversy and detraction, against which even the good fortune of royal patronage proved insufficient...It was the first design of the History to explain the nature, organization, work, and aims of the Royal Society to the public thus showing that the promotion of its affairs was a national, even a patriotic, enterprise that promised both a healing of the wounds left by the recent turbulent events and great material benefits. The History was a piece of public relations, even of propaganda. The materials that went into it was carefully supervised and selected, and its omissions and suppressions are as significant as its contents." - DSB. Hans Aarsleff gives a superb assessment of the work and its contents as well as its position in history and the controversy relating to the publication since its inception. It includes extensive accounts of some valuable experience which had not been previously printed. Among these are Robert Hooke's meteorological account, "A Method for making a History of the Weather" [with an engraved plate], and Rooke's "Directions for the Observations of the Eclipses of the Moon," followed by his "Discourse Concerning the Observations of the Eclipses of the Satellites of Jupiter," Goddard, "A Proposal for making wine," Hooke, "An Account of a Dog dissected," Lord Brouncker, "Experiments of the Recoiling of Guns," and Henshaw, "The History of the Making of Salt-Peter," Sir William Petty, "An Apparatus to the History of the Common Practices of Dying," and other papers. "In 1663 Sprat was elected a fellow of the Royal Society. His History of the Royal Society of London came out in 1667, and was often republished down to 1764. A French translation appeared at Geneva in 1669, and at Paris in 1670. Only the second part specifically relates to the society, the first and third deal respectively with ancient philosophy and experimental knowledge ... Cowley, in his ode to the Royal Society, praised Sprat's work, and Dr. Johnson declared it 'one of the few books which selection of sentiment and elegance of diction have been able to preserve, though written upon a subject flux and transitory.' Written in excellent English, it impresses even modern readers with its 'bold and liberal spirit' of observation" (Thomas Seccombe in DNB). This copy is unusual to one point: the added leaf in the back of the book is an ad: "Benjamin Workman, Next Tom's Coffee-House ... to Mr. Hauksbee)". Workman, according to the advertisement, "furnishes gentlemen with all sorts of instruments and machines, used in several parts both of mathematics and natural philosophy, including navigation, astronomy, geography, surveying, gauging, dialing, mechanicks, opticks, hydrostatics... globes, slide-rules, magic lanterns, camera obscuras, air-pumps, condensers, fountains, etc. Bishop Thomas Sprat, whose lectures were praised by John Evelyn, "became a member of the active and soon influential circle that launched him on his surprising and varied career as the historian and defender of the Royal Society and as a man of the church." - DSB. Provenance: Alan Archibald Campbell-Swinton, (1853-1930), F.R.S., Scottish consulting electrical engineer, responsible for the theoretical basis for the electronic television, even experimented with the cathode ray tubes for electronic transmission. He wrote a paper, The Elementary Principles of Electric Lighting, London, 1886. In 1897 he took a patent with Charles A. Parsons, on "Improvements in reversing steam engines." Following that, he wrote a paper, "On the Source of the Roentgen Rays in Focus Tubes," which was read before the Royal Society, June 16, 1898, being one of the first scientists to recognize the application of radiography to medicine. The bookplate was designed and drawn by Graham Johnston, Edinburgh, with his initials, and executed in 1903. See: Burns, R. W. (1998). Television: An International History of the Formative Years. The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) (History of Technology Series 22) in association with The Science Museum (UK).

        Oppian's Halieuticks of the Nature of Fishes and Fishing of the Ancients in V. Books. Translated from the Greek, with an Account of Oppian's Life and Writings, and a Catalogue of his Fishes

      Oxford: Printed at the Theater, . First edition in English. 1722 - Pp. (8), 232, (7, list of subscribers); engraved title vignette. Early brown half-calf leather, spine with five raised bands, title is lettered in gilt on a red morocco label in one compartment, gilt armorial vignette in another compartment, over gray marbled boards, 8vo. This work was written by the Greek scholar Oppianus (Oppian) who lived in the second century A.D. Casey Wood (p. 500) notes that the first time it appeared in published form was in 1478 in the Italian city-state of Florence. A second edition was published in 1508. The volume offered here is the first edition in English that was translated directly from the original Greek. Casey Wood (pg. 500) observes: "The labor of translating this Greco-Roman author was divided between Mr. Diaper (Pt. 1, Books I and II) and John Jones (Pt. 2, Books III to V). The latter contributor also wrote an account of Oppian's life and writings and compiled a catalogue of his Fishes. Dean's Bibliography of Fishes (volume III, p. 295) says that 'of all the ancient writers on fish and fishing, Oppian is easily the most important.' The contests between rival factions in the sea are amusingly drawn in the lines relating to the Lobster, the Lamprey, and the Preke (octopus). The remarkable color-changes of the last named were well known to the ancients (Book II)". The catalogue of fishes at the end of the work is of taxonomic importance since it lists all fishes known to Oppian in the 2nd century A.D. These fishes are listed with both their Greek and Latin names. The front endpaper bears the signature of Dan Lyfons of All Souls College at Oxford, dated 1752. Daniel Lyfons, M. D. became a Physician to the General Hospital at Bath. The front endpaper also has the armorial bookplate of Ferdinand Grant Loeb (1865 - 1913). Light foxing to the front endpapers and to the half-title; a tight, bright and clean copy in near fine condition in a very attractive early binding.

Allingham, Master of the Mathematical-School in Channel-Row, Westminster. FOURTH EDITION 1722, 'Carefully Revised & Corrected by the Original'. 8vo, approximately 200 x 120 mm, 8 x 4½ inches, engraved frontispiece or extra title page, 31 engraved folding plates, pages: (16), 213, (3) - adverts, bound in full contemporary calf, double ruled gilt border to covers, raised bands and gilt decoration to spine, gilt lettered morocco title label.

Text block tight and firm, a good copy. Sebastien Le Prestre, Seigneur de Vauban and later Marquis de Vauban (1633-1707), commonly referred to as Vauban, was a Marshal of France and the foremost military engineer of his age. He was famous for his skill in both designing fortifications and in breaking through them. He also advised Louis XIV on how to consolidate France's borders, to make them more defensible. He made the radical suggestion of giving up some land that was indefensible to allow for a stronger, less porous border with France's neighbours. He was involved in the Siege of Maastricht (1673), the Siege of Valenciennes (1677) and the fortification of the cities of Strasbourg (1681) and Landau (1688). Often attributed to the pen of Vauban, this work is actually a translation of the Chevalier de Cambray's "Maniere de fortifier de Mr. de Vauban" and was first published in English in 1691. The translator's Dedicatory Epistle is signed A. S. (Abel Swall). Recognised as an important work in its field the English edition was reprinted twice more in the 18th century after our fourth edition in 1748 and 1762. However it is very scarce in any edition. The book is in 3 sections: pages 1-61 A New Treatise of Geometry; pages 61-186 A Treatise of Fortification; pages 187-213 Military orders and the Art of Gunnery. Spaulding and Karpinski, Early Military Books in the Michigan Libraries, page 23, No. 201. English translation not in Sotheby's Library of the Earls of Macclesfield, Part 10.

        Harmonia mensurarum, sive analysis & synthesis per rationum & angulorum mensuras promotae: accedunt alia opuscula mathematica: per Rogerum Cotesium. Edidit et auxit Robertus Smith.

      [Cambridge] Cantabrigiae, 1722. FIRST EDITION. - Quarto. Modern half calf, marbled boards, rubbed, faint library stamps to title verso, a very good clean copy. Pagination pp. [20], 249, [1]; [2], 125, [1], collated and complete with the half-title, and the folded engraved table. Woodcut diagrams throughout. [Babson supp., p29; Norman, 519; Wallis 246; ESTC, T100930]. The English mathematician Cotes, who worked closely with Newton in the preparation of the second edition of the Principia. Cotes died from a fever at the age of 33, prompting Newton to make the famous remark that "if he had lived, we might have known something". Having published only one scientific paper in his lifetime, 'Logometria' (in which he successfully constructs the logarithmic spiral) this posthumous publication, 'Harmonia mesurarum', is the earliest record of Cotes' achievements. It contains "the first version of the Newton-Cotes formulas, introduces what is known today as Euler's formula, gives the first complete treatise on the integral calculus, the first to contain the well-known theorem of trigonometry known as "Cotes' theorem" and, according to Professor Morgan, is "the earliest work in which decided progress was made in the application of logarithms and of the properties of the circle of the calculus of fluents."

        Abhandlung von der Gicht und allen langwierigen Krankheiten ... nebst einem Vorschlag ihrer Heilung. + Falconer, W.: Anmerkungen über Herrn Cadogan Schrift der Gicht und den übrigen Krankheiten.

      Frankfurt u. Leipzig, Christian Gottlieb Hertel, 1722, Kl.8, (14), 146 pp. Berlin, Haube und Spener, 1773, 8, (8), 120 pp., Pappband der Zeit unbeschnittenes Exemplar. Not common first German Edition, bound with the first German edition of William Falconer's (1724-1844) "Observations on Dr. Cadogan's Dissertation on the gout and all chronic diseases."The clyster and other "rather fierce methods of treatment received a temporary setback when Dr. William Cadogan (1711-1799) published his best-selling book, A Dissertation on the Gout and on All Chronic Diseases (1771), which he dedicated "to all invalids." In it, he refuted specific treatment and, with great originality as was then thought, advocated a permanently temperate way of life. He wrote: "How ill can vomiting, bleeding and purging supply the place of temperance cordials and opium of peace of mind? ... It is the constant course of life which we lead, what we do, or neglect to do habitually that, if right, establishes our health if wrong, makes us invalids for life." Nevertheless he later relented somewhat and said that: "I think the causes may be very fairly reduced to these three: Indolence, Intemperance and Vexation. . . . It is by their own fault that they are ill. Nonetheless medical treatment can do good." Dr. Samuel Johnson was asked his opinion of this work by Boswell, and thought that: " 'This a good book in general, Sir, but a foolish one as to particulars." No doubt this was because for his own gout Johnson preferred and practised drastic treatment which included enormous doses of dr. James powder of antimony, such as were supposed to have killed his friend, Olvier Goldsmith." Dr. William Cadogan, F.R.S. (1711-1797), qualified originally at Leyden, but later became physician to the Foundling Hospital in London. William Munk described him as being "of pleasing manners and strong good sense, who by his writing did draw much attention to himself, and paved the way to a lucrative business." His Dissertation on the Gout (1771) attracted great attention and went through eleven editions (in two years) whilst his sturdy common sense and advocacy of moderation in all things did much to dispel the mystique which had long surrounded this disease. The great actor, David Garrick, who was a sufferer, wrote of this: "Dr. C. has written a book lately upon ye gout. It is much admired and certainly has its merit-I was frightened with it for a week." Cadogan maintained that the causes of gout were three in number: "Indolence, Intemperance and Vexation. ... So it is by the patient's own fault that he is ill," and although he realized that this was sometimes recognized by enlightened physicians, he declared: "Nonetheless, they are afraid to say so, and this talk seems to have been left to me, and I will perform it most sincerely." He concluded: "Let me say that an active and frugal life is a safe preventative, and may be a cure." Cadogan built himself a pleasant country house near London which is now the Hurlingham Club, home of English polo, to which he retired and died at the age of 86." W.S.C. Copeman, A Short history of the Gout, pp.4,7,16,84-89 "For the treatment of chronic diseases Cadogan advocated Activity, Temperance and Peace of Mind. The prescription of the modem geriatrician!"

Zum andermal vermehr heraus gegeben."DER CHIRURG DES GROSSEN KURFÜRSTEN Eines der seltensten frühen deutschen Chirurgiewerke! Aus Lüben in Schlesien, war Matthäus Gottfried Purmannn (1648-1711) einer der berühmtesten Wundärzte seiner Zeit. Als Militärarzt war er 9 Jahre in brandenburgischen Diensten. Dabei sammelte er in den vielen Feldzügen wertvolle chirurgische Erfahrungen. Besonders im pommerschen Krieg gegen die Schweden, namentlich 1677 vor Stettin in Bezug auf die schweren Verletzungen durch die gläsernen Granaten des Gegners. Der Friede von St.Germain beendete die Kriegshändel des Großen Kurfürsten. Purmann nahm seinen Abschied und wurde Stadtarzt in Halberstadt. Da er später in der kleinen, von der Pest dezimierten Stadt kein ausreichendes Auskommen fand, kaufte er 1684 eine Offizin in Breslau, wo er dann bis zu seinem Tode als hochgeachteter Stadtarzt wirkte. Eigentlich ohne wissenschaftliche Bildung, ein geschickter und mutiger Handwerkschirurg, erhielt er seine beste Ausbildung im Krieg, der Mutter der Chirurgie. Die deutsche Chirurgie verdankt ihm viel. So die erste Transfusion (1668 mit Lammblut dazu die schöne Tafel in unserer Ausgabe). Er erprobte die Infusion an sich selbst und hatte bis 1684 schon 40 Trepanationen ausgeführt, wobei er die Knochenspäne mit einem Röhrchen fortblies. Während die Kunst der Plastischen Chirurgie bei seinen Zeitgenossen weitgehend in Vergessenheit geraten war, gibt Purmann ausführliche Hinweise zur Transplantation und zur Wiederherstellungschirurgie (Zeis, Gesch. d. Plast. Chir., SS.24-25, no.150). Sehnenverletzungen der Hand band er mit in Alkohol konservierten Darmsaiten zusammen. Ein Aneurysma hat er totalexstirpiert und bei der Behandlung der Bauchbrüche verwendete er die innere Naht des Bruchsackes ohne Kastration, er praktiziert den Kaiserschnitt an der Lebenden, die Tracheotomie, ferner berichtet er über Anheilung einer fast ganz abgehauenen Ohrmuschel, deren Wundflächen zuerst "geritzet", und dann mit einem Heftpulver bestreut und mit Heftpflaster befestigt wurden, etc. Ein Pionierwerk deutscher Chirurgie!

        Britannia: or a chorographical description of Great Britain and Ireland, together with the adjacent islands. Written in Latin by William Camden, Clarenceux, King at Arms: and translated into English, with additions and improvements. The second edition. Revised, digested, and published, with large additions, by Edmund Gibson, D. D. Rector of Lambeth; and now Bishop of Lincoln, and Dean of His Majesty's Chapel-Royal

      London: printed by Mary Matthews, for Awnsham Churchill, and sold by William Taylor, in Pater-Noster-Row, 1722. Full Calf. Fine. A pinnacle of English scholarship, the first comprehensive topographical survey of Great Britain, complete in two tall folio volumes, mainly printed in two numbered columns: [66]pp,cclxviii columns,[2]pp,696 columns; [2],697-1526 columns,[176, appendices, index and errata]pp. Contemporary cambridge-style paneled calf (joints very neatly repaired), spine in seven compartments between raised bands, red morocco lettering pieces gilt; title pages in red and black, copper-engraved frontispiece portrait of Camden, 10 plates of coins and antiquities, 51 folding or double-page maps (including 42 county maps), additional engravings and woodcut illustrations in text. An unusually Fine set, original binding with handsome patina; pages bright, fresh and unmarked; plates and maps in deep, rich impressions. PMM 101 and Gibson's Library, p. 87 (for first edition). Goldsmiths' 6088. ESTC Citation No. T144701. Second (and Best) Edition of this essential translation (by Edmund Gibson), the first successful transcription into English, with maps by Robert Morden. "Not a history, the Britannia attempts (in the words of Gibson's translation of Camden's preface) 'to restore Britain to Antiquity, and Antiquity to Britain'-the charge that Camden says was given him by the 'great Restorer of old Geography', [Abraham] Ortelius himself. It does so by documenting the ancient pre-Roman British past using every kind of primary historical evidence imaginable, whether written records, inscriptions, literary remains, material both historical and mythological, or testimony drawn from the physical landscape. In his use of non-literary evidence Camden was a leading figure in his generation, and his work in numismatics . . . has been described as 'of pioneering importance' (Piggott, 204). Recognizing the imperfection of the written record, particularly the scarcity of genuine British material, Camden looks to multiple kinds of evidence to push the record as far back as possible and to trace continuities through the different periods of British history." Britannia made its début, in Latin, on 2 May 1586, with enlarged editions following in 1587, 1590, 1594, 1600 and 1607, the final Latin edition in Camden's lifetime, published in folio and containing an index, maps by Saxton and Norden, and engravings of coins, monuments, and topographical sites-all in all, an impressive and editorially sophisticated work of scholarship. The first translation into English came in 1610 , at the hand of Philemon Holland . Yet despite Camden's collaboration, "the translation is often inaccurate and takes liberties with the material, and for this reason is regarded as inferior to Edmund Gibson's translation of 1695 (ours is the second, enlarged edition of that essential translation, published in 1722). Gibson was assisted in his efforts by numerous scholars, including Samuel Pepys, and his translation was held in high esteem for the better part of the 18th century until It was finally superseded in 1789 by the edition of Richard Gough. (Literary Encyclopedia) "If Camden was not the first English historian (in the modern sense of the word), topographer, and antiquarian, he was certainly the first to relate the three studies, and his Britannia, primarily topographical, is the first book which shows, even in a rudimentary form, the need to evaluate sources. It was the revolutionary subject matter, and its even more revolutionary treatment of the subject, which made it at once the vehicle and the model for research in all three subjects for the next two hundred and fifty years." (PMM).

Exemplaire aux armes des princes de Bourbon Condé, d'azur à trois fleurs de lys d'or, au bastion de gueules, ayant vraisemblablement appartenu à Louise-anne de Bourbon Condé, dite Mademoiselle de Charolais, fille de la fille légitime de Louis XIV, Mademoiselle de Nantes. Reliures de l'époque en plein veau brun. Dos à cinq nerfs richement ornés de caissons et fleurons dorés, ainsi que d'une pièce de titre de maroquin rouge. Roulettes dorées en encadrement des contreplats ornés en leurs centres des armes des princes de Bourbon-Condé. Roulettes dorées sur les coupes et les coiffes. Toutes tranches mouchetées rouges. Coiffes, mors et coins très habilement restaurées.  Ces Lettres nouvelles sont un recueil de chroniques du temps, d'informations sur la ville et la cour, de fables, de contes et de satires. Les 13 lettres d'une dame à un cavalier composent un court récit. Le troisième volume est consitué des Lettres de Babet. Boursault est davantage connu et resté comme un dramaturge, bien que la postérité n'est souvent retenu que son rôle de censeur de L'école des femmes de Molière et de sa participation malheureuse dans les querelles théâtrale du XVIIe. L'auteur a pourtant oeuvré dans de nombreux domaines littéraires, notamment la nouvelle et le roman, dans une plume libre et légère, ainsi qu'on peut le constater dans cet ouvrage.

      Chez Jean Mariette, 1722. (19 x 26,5) Bellissima legatura in piena pelle coeva, dorso a 5 nervi con tit. e fregi in oro. (8), 293, (11) pp., 38 tavole incise in rame f.t., rip. e a doppia pagina. Testo basilare sui giardini francesi ed uno dei più importanti lavori del XVIII secolo riguardante gli aspetti teorici di questa materia. La fama dell'autore (1680-1765) deriva non solo dalla sua creativa contrapposizione di elementi ornamentali naturali con altri prodotti dell'uomo (poni, fontane, colonnati, etc.), ma in maniera più significativa dalla sua abilità nel cambiare ed adattare i suoi progetti secondo le evoluzioni del gusto di allora e degli sviluppi dell'orticoltura. Questa edizione è abbellita da 38 tavole incise da Jean Marette, otre a numerose illustrazioni nel testo. Ganay 45; Mosser, M. - Teyssot, Histoire des Jardins de la Renaissance a nos Jours, p. 8.

        TABULAE ANATOMICAE Quas è tenebris tandem vindicatas et Clementis XI Pont. Max. munificentia dono acceptas. Praefatione notisque illustravit, Jo. Maria Lancisius.

      Amstelaedami, apud R. & G. Wetstenios, 1722. In folio p. (mm. 388x228), p. pergam. coeva (risg. rifatti), tit. ms. al dorso, pp. XLIV,115,(13), con interessante vignetta inc. in rame al frontespizio che raffigura una lezione di anatomia; ornato da grandi iniziali inc. su legno. L'opera è illustrata f.t. da 47 tavv. anatomiche, inc. in rame da Giulio de Musi, tutte dettagliatamente descritte a fronte. "Seconda edizione". Queste tavole, completate nel 1552, non furono stampate all'epoca e vennero dimenticate. Furono ritrovate in Urbino, presso gli eredi di Pier Matteo Pini (allievo e fedelissimo collaboratore dell'Eustachi) grazie all'interessamento del Lancisi il quale, nel 1714, ne curò una sontuosa edizione che gareggia con la 'Fabrica' del Vesalio nel fornire lo stato della iconografia anatomica attorno alla metà del Cinquecento. Così Belloni, p. 308. Cfr. Premuda, p. 136 e segg.: "Se le tavole dello scienziato marchigiano fossero state pubblicate nel 1552, non appena pronte, Eustachi avrebbe potuto figurare accanto a Vesalio come uno dei fondatori della scienza anatomica moderna.. Le tavole eustachiane sono per lo più inferiori a quelle del Vesalio per bellezza, ma pari e talvolta superiori ad esse per precisione e per accuratezza nei dettagli”. Cfr. anche Garrison-Morton,391 che cita la I ed. del 1714: "He discovered the Eustachian tube, the thoracic duct, the adrenals and the abducens nerve, and gave the first accurate description of the uterus. He also described the cochlea, the muscles of the throat and the origin of the optic nerves" - Brunet,II,1113. Solo 1 carta iniziale restaur. per strappi margin., altrimenti esemplare con barbe, ben conservato.

        L'Antiquite Expliquee, et Representee en Figures

      1722. MONTFAUCON, Bernard de. L’Antiquité Expliquée, et Representée en Figures. Paris: Florentin Delaulne, et al., 1722, 1724. Five volumes in ten, and five volume supplement. Fifteen volumes in all. Folio (12 by 17 inches), contemporary full mottled calf, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, raised bands, marbled endpapers. $18,500.Second edition, revised and corrected from the 1719 first, with the five-volume 1724 supplement. Magnificent set of Montfaucon’s landmark work on classical archaeology, with nearly 1400 engraved plates (including approximately 250 double-page and folding plates). A splendid copy in beautiful full contemporary calf-gilt.De Montfaucon (1655-1741), a Benedictine of the Congregation of Saint-Maur devoted to historical and ecclesiastical scholarship, pioneered the studies of Greek paleography and archaeology. “His Antiquité… surveyed in fifteen volumes the social and artistic aspects of the ancient civilizations; and the unfinished Monuments de la Monarchie Française tried to do the same for early French history. These works can well be called foundation stones of scientific archaeology” (Printing and the Mind of Man 175). In preparing L’Antiquité… de Montfaucon received contributions and assistance from many of the greatest European collections of antiquities of the period; most of these are credited adjacent to each of their respective illustrations. “As this work has never been completely replaced, it still conserves its long-standing value… Beautiful copies are not easy to come by” (Brunet 28960). “In spite of the imperfections that are impossible to avoid in such an immense work… one cannot deny that it has contributed to the spread, particularly in France, of the interest in archaeology, or that he did not advance this science among us” (Biographie Universelle). Text in French and Latin. First published in 1719, in an edition of 1800 copies that sold out in two months despite its enormous size and expense. Cicognara 2493. Armorial bookplate on verso of each title page. Owner signature, dated 1837. Bookplate of Philadelphia attorney John T. Montgomery, with a presentation bookplate of the Philadelphia Club indicating that he presented this set to the Club in 1888.Interior generally clean. Expert restoration to contemporary calf, mostly joints and spine ends. A monumental work, most desirable in beautiful contemporary calf-gilt.
