"Observationum Sacrarum" is an impressive collection of material on "philological, exegetical, and theological topics which grew over the decades into an impressive six-volume set (the seven and last volume was published posthumously). The collection consists largely of material prepared in connection with Vitringa's public disputations" (For more information, see: Charles K. Telfer's "Wrestling with Isaiah: The Exegetical Methodology of Campegius Vitringa" (Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, 2016), Page 29).This work is complete with its engraved Kabbalistic plate facing page 142 in first volume.Bindings somewhat darkened and age-toned. Ex-library sticker at tail of spines, and stamp on each fly leaf and main titles. Text in Latin, with some Hebrew and Greek. Bindings in overall good- to good, interior in very good condition. About the author: Campegius Vitringa (1659-1722) was a Dutch Protestant theologian and Hebraist. A follower of Johannes Cocceius,Vitringa was a supporter of prophetic theology. He was educated at the universities of Franeker and Leiden, and became professor of Oriental languages at the former in 1681. When locating prophetic outcomes, he would associate events to the near rather than the far-off future, placing a distinct focus on the period of the Maccabees (2nd Century BC). Like Joseph Mede (1586-1638), Vitringa believed wholeheartedly that the Millennium was yet to come, but did not expect any immediate changes. He relegated the end of the time to a remote future and strongly emphasized the concept of New Jerusalem (From Wikipedia).

Nouvelle édition. [Première-Quatrième partie]. Suivi de : NOUVELLES LETTRES DE MESSIRE ROGER DE RABUTIN, COMTE DE BUSSY, Lieutenant Général des Armées du Roi, et Mestre de Camp Général de la Cavalerie française et étrangère. Avec les réponses. Sur l'imprimé A Paris, Chez Florentin Delaulne, 172 7 volumes in-12 (16 x 9,5 cm) de (4)-374-(2), (4)-295, (6)-550, (8)-491-(4), (10)-448, (8)-386 et (6)-384 pages. Nous pouvons fournir la collation détaillée sur demande. Reliure pleine basane fauve de l'époque, dos à nerfs richement ornés, pièces de titre et tomaison de maroquin rouge, tranches rouges. Coiffes et coins avec usures et manques aux extrémités, intérieur collationné complet. Papier parfois bruni sans gravité. Quelques rousseurs. Pourtour de quelques pages de titre bruni. Le titre au dos a été mal doré "RABATIN" au lieu de "RABUTIN". RARISSIME CONTREFAÇON DE L'EDITION DE 1720-1727 PARUE CHEZ LA VEUVE DELAULNE. Détail des volumes : Tome I : Outre un Avertissement, ce volume contient les lettres I à CXLIV. Soit 144 lettres. Tome II : Ce volume contient les lettres I à CXI. Soit 111 lettres. Tome III : Ce volume contient les lettres I à CCCXXXIII. Soit 333 lettres. Tome IV : Ce volume contient les lettres I à CCCLXXI. Soit 371 lettres. Tome V : Outre un Avertissement, ce volume contient les lettres I à CCCXXV. Soit 325 lettres. Tome VI : Ce volume contient les lettres I à CCLXX. Soit 270 lettres. Tome VII : Ce volume contient les lettres I à CCXIX. Soit 219 lettres. Sur l'ensemble des 7 volumes ce sont donc 1773 lettres écrites par le comte de Bussy-Rabutin ou adressées à lui qui sont rassemblées dans cette édition (identique en tous points à celle de 1720-1727). Quelques remarques sur cette édition : A noter qu'on ne trouve de réclame qu'en fin de cahiers de 4 ou 8 feuillets, ce qui contrairement à la pratique dans les Pays-Bas (Amsterdam ou La Haye) où tous les feuillets comportent habituellement une réclame pour le feuillet suivant, indiquerait ici une impression française. La mention "sur l'imprimé" présente sur les titres indique de façon claire une contrefaçon de l'impression de Paris chez Florentin Delaulne. D'ailleurs en 1727 Florentin Delaulne est décédé et la véritable édition de Paris, 1727 porte l'adresse : Veuve Delaulne. L'ensemble des 7 volumes est parsemé d'ornements gravés (fleurons, bandeaux, culs-de-lampe), leur étude serait intéressante pour déterminer de quelle ville et de quel atelier typographique sortent ces volumes (Lyon ? Rouen ?). Une comparaison avec la véritable édition Delaulne de 1720 indique un texte identique avec de faibles différences dans la justification de quelques lignes. La pagination est identique. On trouve un très grand nombre de lettres dans cette riche correspondance de Bussy-Rabutin. Exilé sur ses terres de Bourgogne à Bussy pendant près de dix-sept années à cause de son libertinage et surtout à cause de son Histoire amoureuse des Gaules qui circula en manuscrit et imprimée pendant toute la seconde moitié du XVIIe siècle, pour la plus grande fureur de Louis XIV qui ne lui pardonna jamais d’avoir chansonné les amours du Roi, Bussy-Rabutin se livre ici dans son intimité. Mais ce qu’il y a de plus remarquable sans aucun doute dans cette correspondance, c’est qu’on y trouve aussi les réponses des nombreux correspondants du comte, fait rare dans l’édition des correspondances anciennes qui sont parvenues jusqu'à nous. On y retrouve notamment la plus célèbre de ses correspondantes, la marquise de Sévigné, Marie de Rabutin Chantal. On sait que c’est le fils de Roger de Rabutin qui édita en partie avec le Père Bouhours la correspondance de Bussy (1697-1709). C’est également le fils de Roger de Rabutin qui communiqua les manuscrits des premières lettres publiées de la marquise de [Attributes: Hard Cover]

This example bound with a continuously-paginated but separately issued printing of the session laws, extending the work to November 1727.

The present 1726 edition noted for the inclusion here for the first time of the newly adopted modification to the Charter, King Georges "Explanatory Charter" (pp. 13-14), whereby the position of the Governor was further strengthened: he was given sole power to adjourn the House of Representatives, and the right to veto the House's choice of their Speaker.

      London: Printed for Benj. Motte, 1726-1727. Volume I is first edition, Teerink issue B with the continuous pagination, Volume II second edition. Volume II title-page dated 1727 and with the edition statement that reads "The Second Edition, Corrected." Four parts in two octavo volumes (7 1/2 x 4 5/8 inches; 190 x 116 mm). viii, [4], [1]-148; [6], [149]-310; [2, publisher's ads], [6], 155, [1, blank]; [8], 199, [1, blank] pp. With engraved frontispiece, five engraved maps and engraved plate of symbols. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Gulliver in the second state, as is usual (the first state only seen in large paper copies). Portrait has the inscription "Captain Lemuel Gulliver of Redriff. Ætat. suæ LVIII." around the oval the tablet bearing a Latin inscription, printed on paper with vertical chain-lines. Containing numerous woodcut head- and tail-pieces and initials. Beautifully bound by Morrell, London for Thomas W. Best in full green-blue 19th-century morocco. Boards decoratively ruled in gilt with corner devices. Spines stamped and lettered in gilt. Board edges gilt, and gilt dentelles. All edges gilt. Marbled endpapers. Previous owner's bookplate on front pastedown of each volume. Outer hinges with some slight rubbing. Title-page of volume I with some minor darkening. Overall a beautiful set. Gulliver's Travels, to use the popular title, is one of the greatest satires in the English language--or any language, for that matter. It was an immediate success, which accounts in part for its bibliographical complexity, and has been hailed as a book that "would last as long as the language, because it described the vices of man in all nations" (D.N.B.). "Gulliver's Travels has given Swift an immortality beyond temporary fame...All those who had been fascinated by the realism and vivid detail of Defoe's Robinson Crusoe were captivated again, even though they knew that Gulliver must be fiction. The brilliance and thoroughness with which his logic and invention work out the picquancies of scale involved by the giant human among the Lilliputians, and then by a minikin Gulliver among the Brobdingnagians, ran away with the author's original intention. Gulliver's Travels has achieved the final apotheosis of a satirical fable, but it has also become a tale for children. For every edition designed for the reader with an eye to the historical background, twenty have appeared, abridged or adapted, for readers who care nothing for the satire and enjoy it as a first-class story" (Printing and the Mind of Man). Grolier, 100 English, 42. Hubbard, pp. 15-17. Printing and the Mind of Man 185. Rothschild 2104. Teerink.

XXV e 20 tavv. in fondo, di cui alcune doppie e ripiegate; caratteri rossi e neri al frontespizio. Prima edizione e una delle prime opere pubblicate dal grande archeologo Antonio Francesco Gori (1691-1757). Opera di pregio e di particolare interesse archeolgico, in cui l'A. descrive, indaga e illustra il "Colombario" (monumento funebre), scoperto sulla Via Appia nel 1726, eretto per lo schiavo e i servi di Livia Drusilla (Julia Augusta) (58 a.C. - 29 d.C.), madre di Tiberio, seconda moglie di Augusto. Il Colombario, una tomba comune e deposito per le urne, conteneva le ceneri dei morti (liberi e schiavi) della famiglia di Livia. Le incisioni alle testate ed ai finali dell'opera illustrano gemme antiche ed altri preziosi reperti di piccola scala, provenienti da collezioni contemporanee. Le belle tavole mostrano il Colombario, un piano, le sale di sepoltura con una miriade di nicchie lungo le pareti, una serie di sarcofagi romani decorati, e altre antichità funerarie ritrovate in quel luogo. Ogni tavola è dedicata ad un mecenate influente, tra i quali Joseph Smith e Sir Thomas Dereham. La scoperta del Colombario aveva anche catturato l'attenzione dell'allora direttore delle antichità di Roma, Francesco Bianchini, che ha pubblicato le sue scoperte nel libro "Camera ed iscrizioni sepolcrali . della casa d'Augusto", che è apparso nello stesso anno.

        Die evangelische Lebens-Pflichten : In einem Jahrgang der Predigten bey den Sonn- und Fest-Täglichen ordentlichen Evangelien

      Publisher: Berlin & Potsdam : Bey Johann Andreas Rüdigern | 1727 | | 1334 s + register | | Some wear, typical antiquarian condition. --- Information regarding the book: Fourth edition (1st. ed. Frankfurt 1692). "Philip Jacob Spener (1635-1705) is credited with forging the ideas of Arndt into a reform movement within Lutheranism. Like Arndt, he was a Lutheran pastor and scholar. He was deeply influenced by (Arndt's) True Christianity (1605), and in 1675, he wrote a foreword to a new edition of True Christianity. This foreword, reissued separately a year later, was entitled Pia Desideria, or Heartfelt Desire for a God-pleasing Reform of the True Evangelical Church, Together with Several Simple Christian Proposals Looking Toward this End. As the title suggests, this work not only critiqued the spiritual state of German Lutheranism; it also outlined a plan of reform. It was greeted with an enthusiastic response by many German people, but with sharp criticism by much of the the clergy. In his subsequent works, Spener continued to outline the needed reform of the Lutheran church"( Gary DeLashmutt at www.xenos.org/essays/pietism).

        Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World

      ondon- N/A, 1727 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. A scarce copy ofthe famous pretended third volume to Gulliver's travels. Two parts, bound as one. Collated: Complete, with frontispiece and half title, and decorative head and tail pieces. Printed the year after the first edition, this volume is one of the best known spurious editions of the extended adventures of Gulliver. Purporting to be a third volume of Gulliver's travels, the work appeared in 1727, unattributed to a publisher. The volume has two parts, 'A Second Voyage to Brobdingnag' and 'A Voyage to Sevarambia' and was ultimately a poor imitation of Swift'soriginal work, borrowing heavily froma French work 'L'Histoire des Severambes. 'In hisMemoirs of Jonathan Swift, Sir Walter Scott referred to this work as 'the most impudent combination of piracy and forgery that ever occurred in the literary world' and 'a mere bookseller's catch-penny' of 'little genius'. Regardless of Scott's poor opinion, the work is a fascinating piece of literary history, particularly to a collector of works relating to Swift and his most famous creation. Very scarce, held at the V&A Libraries, Cambridge University, Oxford University and UCL, and last sold at auction in 2004. Condition: Rebacked in calf with original boards preserved. Externally, sound with light rubbing to boards, heavier to extremities, and slight loss to the head and tail of the spine. Hinges reinforced. Internally, firmly bound. Pages bright with tidemarks to endpapers and first six pages, including frontispiece. Pages generally clean with light handlingmarks and spots, and pages slightly cockled. Overall: VERY GOOD.

[Resp.:] Justinus Gerhardus Duising Hamberger, Georg Erhard (1697-1755) (Pr?ses) Duising, Justinus Gerhardus (1705-1761)(Resp."Recent data on intercostal muscle function, largely electromyographic, tend to confirm the ideas of Hamberger, who, in 1748 (recte 1727), proposed a theory of intercostals muscle action upon the rib cage. Hamberger's scheme was based upon a consideration of the ribs as levers and the vertebral column and sternum as fulcra, and of the directions in which the internal and external intercostal muscle fibers ran. He proposed that the external intercostals were inspiratory and that the internal intercostals were expiratory, except in the parasternal regions where the internal intercostals (there are no other intercostal muscles) are inspiratory. Careful selective electromyographic studies in both animals and man (using small bipolar needle electrodes) by Draper et al, Taylor et al, and Sears et al have amply confirmed Hamberger's ideas".

The 46 plates form the most advanced pictorial record of native life in the Cape and of the fauna too, while the earlier German edition only had one map. Kolbe or Kolben was sent to the Cape in 1705 in order to make astronomical observations, but he was not a success and in 1710 his superiors decided that a lacklustre performance of his duties warranted his repatriation to Holland. He managed, however, to find a position ending up as secretary to the Court of Landdrost and Heemraden at Stellenbosch. Again his character and abilities were found wanting and he returned to Germany in 1713. As Theal notices ?

Modern full brown morocco with gold lettering to spines. Raised bands. Engraved frontispiece portrait of the author by George Vertue. Decorative head-, and tailpieces.Originally written in 1685, John Spencer's "De Legibus Hebraeorum" is a pioneer work of comparative religion, advancing the thesis that Judaism was not the earliest of mankind's religions. Spencer's chief purpose in writting this book was to prove in detail that the rites and ceremonies of the Jewish religion were instituted in direct opposition to the practices of the surrounding idolatrous nations, and in order to establish the strongest distinction between the Jews and them. In this work the author derived nearly all his data from classical writers of Greece and Rome, the Church Fathers, the works of Josephus, or from the Bible itself.Previous owner's bookplates on inside of each front cover (Library Brocket Hall; Francis Thomas de Grey Cowper - Panshanger).

Contemporary calf, spine with raised bands in seven compartments, red and green morocco lettering pieces in the second and third, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers and edges A lovely copy of a noted illustrated work on Asia, including maps and views of India, China, and Japan. "Johann von Mandelslo was a friend of Adam Olearius and a former page of the Duke of Holstein-Gottorp. Together Mandelslo and Olearius were sent by the Duke on an embassy to the Russian Czar and to the Shah of Persia [for the purpose of initiating trade relations with Russia, Tartary and Persia]. Mandelslo was authorized to leave the embassy in Persia and to continue his travels to the Far East. He went to Surat, Agra, and Goa in India, where he received great kindness from the English merchants, and he also visited Ceylon. He gives long accounts of the other parts of the Far East, which he did not visit personally. His return was made to England by sea via the Cape of Good Hope, which he visited in 1639" (Hill). Madelslo's narrative contains substantial information on the Far East. "Before his death, Mandelslo had entrusted his rough notes to Olearius, who subsequently published them bound with his numerous official accounts of the embassy" (Howgego). Following the first publication, Olearius added additional information to subsequent editions. A new edition in French translated by Wicquefort included still more additional material, including an account of the travels of Henri de Feynes to China, Formosa and Japan. The present edition published in Amsterdam in 1727 is a re-issue of the Van der Aa edition of 1719 (published in Leiden); both are celebrated as the best editions, being the most complete and with the largest number of illustrations. The plates include views and plans of London, Amsterdam, Brussels, Antwerp, Capetown, Goa, Surat, Jedo (Tokyo), St. Helena, Mauritius, Madagascar, the Canary Islands, Java, Congo and elsewhere.

The celebrated journey story of the knight Mandelslo accompanying the Duke of Holstein in an embassy to Russia and to Persia, was first published in Schlesswig, in 1645  already deceased Mandelslo and at his desire (1), by Adam Olearius [Adam Oehlschlaeger], librarian of the Duke and secretary of the embassy, as a complement to the report that Olearius drafted about that embassy. From there, coming alive, the trip was edited on multiple occasions during XVIIth c., at least in German, Dutch, French, Italian and English. The success of the work was helped by both Olearius and his translators and successive publishers by adding new content (to the brief description of Mandelslo s return to Europe through India and by boat turning the Cape of Good Hope) taken it from other sources to describe other Asian and East Indian territories in which Mandelslo had not stayed, from China to Japan, through Siam or the Philippine Islands. These modifications also took on a life of their own and the return trip description became a completely different separate work from the original story of the embassy in Moscow and Persia. The most complete editions of what came to be known as Mandelslo s voyages, especially in regard to the arrangement of multiple images to illustrate those distant territories, are those that Pieter Van der Aa printed in Leiden, 1719, in French. He published the Mandelslo s original narrative in two continuous paged tomes titled 'Voyages très curieux et très renommez, faits in Moscovie, Tartarie et Perse', in which the name of Mandelslo did not appear. On the other hand, paradoxically, the essentially apocryphal narrative of the voyage from Persia to India with the description of East Asia with all the accumulated sum of descriptions of those territories taken from multiple sources, was published by Vander Aa also in two continuous paged tomes with the title of 'Voyages celebres & remarquables, faits de Perse... por Johann Albrecht von Mandelslo'. But something happened that we have not been able to find out, because eight years later, in 1727, the unsold copies of these two works began to be commercialized with new title-pages, under the imprint of Michel Charles Le Céne, a publisher-printer from Amsterdam that was specialized in music prints production. Focusing on the second work that we offer, by comparing the copies of both states it can be observed that, apart from took out the first engraved title-page in which the name of Van der Aa appeared, and apart the new title-pages of worse quality paper  motive by which all the copies present the title-pages more age-toned than the rest of the leaves , Le Céne did not make any other alteration. Thus, both the pages and the graphic work that must be present in any copy, whether of the commercials with the tiltle-page from Van der Aa or the one from Charles de Ce ne, are always the same  except the engraved title-page. Moreover, this circumstance implies that all engravings come from the same state of the plates and from the same print run: all of them were printed in 1719 or earlier. Graphic contents must be composed of 20 half page (or bigger) vignettes inserted in the text, and 45 engravings out of text which are the result of the sum of on the one hand the 37 engravings collated in the notice to the bookbinder that appears on the back of Ooo3 (2 folded, 28 double-page, and 7 single-page) and, on the other hand, 8 engraved leaves: the Mandelslo s portrait  sometimes in front of the cover, sometimes behind and sometimes behind preliminars , a plate of two people on the coast of Cormandel, and six full-page engravings containing each one two framed images. These leaves of uncollated engravings are etched, Mandelslo s portrait excepts, with the number of the column they must be bound together. Cartographically, 26 of the engravings of the previous set are maps, namely, 4 of the great vignettes interspersed in the text and, outsides, 1 folding city map of Goa, and 15 double-page and 6 simple-page maps. Among the remaining panoramas, landscapes, scenes, ruins and buildings stands out the Yedo (i.e. Tokyo) folding panorama. On the other hand, the engravings that are most often missing because many copies have been stripped of any of them are the double-page of the Court of the Great Mogul (col. 144), the folding plane of Goa (col. 244) , the Java Island map (col. 356), and, of course, Tokyo s grand panorama (Col. 472). The item we offer, full of his graphic work and with the second volume half-title absent, was part of the great botanical library of the marriage formed by Ruth Hinrichsen and the bibliophile Walter Middelmann, German emigrants (1935) in South Africa, and founders of Honingklip Dryflowers, flower growers like Erikas, Proteas and other endemicals of the Cape region in South Africa.

        Olofs capell som derunder lyder.

      Sthlm, J. H. Werner, 1727. Folio. (8),200 s. & 4 grav. plr, varav 2 utvikbara. Titelbladet tryckt i rött och svart. Träsnittssigill på baksidan av titelbladet. Ngt nött samtida hfrbd med upphöjda bind och rödstänkta snitt. Ryggen med liten skada upptill och falsarna med smårevor här och var samt en del smärre maskangrepp. Turkmarmorerat pärmpapper. Ren inlaga. Från Säby med Germund Ludvig Cederhielms signatur. Christoffer Eichhorns exlibris och anteckning att boken sedan tillhört Per Daniel Holm. Trevligt ex. Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 2230. Akrell Stockholmiana 701. Bygdén Landskapet Uplands och Stockholms stad s. 80. Med hyllningsverser av J. Hermansson och J. Scherping. Planscherna, signerade C. L. v. Schantz och J. v. d. Aveleen, avbildar bl.a. S:ta Klara kloster och Descartes grav. Verket är en historik över Klara församling från klostertiden till författarens samtid och avtrycker många i dag förkomna dokument. På s. 162-63 återfinns Nordbergs egenhändiga biografi. Prästen och skriftställaren Jöran A. Nordberg (1677-1744) hade tillfångatagits av ryssarna vid slaget vid Poltava och återkommit till Sverige först 1715. Han var bl.a. Karl XII:s biktfader åren 1716-17. Två år senare blev han kyrkoherde i Klara församling i Stockholm som på den tiden även innefattade Olofs kapell, nuvarande Adolf Fredriks kyrka. Nordberg har kommit att betraktas som den siste i raden av den svenska stormaktstidens rikshistoriografer, detta på grundval av sitt tvåbandsverk "Konung Carl XII:s historia" (1740). Det Cederhielmska biblioteket började byggas upp i slutet av 1600-talet av presidenten i Göta hovrätt, Germund Cederhielm. Det ärvdes och utökades ytterligare av sonen Eric Germund, men framförallt av dennes son Germund Carl. Den sista ägaren i familjen Cederhielm, Germund Ludvig, lät i början av 1800-talet flytta hela boksamlingen till Säby utanför Linköping. Den omfångsrika manuskriptsamlingen donerades med tiden till Uppsala universitetsbibliotek, medan boksamlingen 1841 gick i arv till Cederhielms hushållerska. Hennes efterlevande lät sälja böckerna på auktion i Stockholm 1878, 1880 och 1882. Biblioteket var då starkt reducerat p.g.a. en omfattande misskötsel under de föregående trettio åren, men dessa bokauktioner var trots detta bland 1800-talets viktigaste och mest intressanta. I boksamlingen ingick böcker ur Magnus Gabriel De la Gardies bibliotek och även ett stort antal krigsbyten ur polska bibliotek, framförallt med Karl Ferdinands pärmexlibris eller namn. Många av dessa böcker hade förvärvats i samband med försäljningen av det Oxenstiernska biblioteket 1732. Bibliotekarien och konsthistorikern Christoffer Eichhorn (1837-89) hade ett omfattande ochg vackert bibliotek som såldes på auktion 1890-91. Konstnären och professorn vid Konstakademien P. D. Holm (1835-1903) räknas som en av de främsta samlarna genom tiderna av svensk topografisk litteratur. I auktionskatalogen från 1904 över hans bibliotek står det i beskrivningen av denna bok: "mycket godt exemplar och som sådant sällsynt".

        Mémoire sur les colonies Américaines, sur leurs relations politques avec leurs métropoles, et sur la manière dont la France et L'Espagne ont dû envisager les suites de l'indépendance des Etats-Unis de l'Amérique.Paris, Pierre-Samuel Dupont, 1791. 8vo. 19th-century half calf, gold-tooled spine.

      Cat. Goldsmith I, 14728; Kress B2230; Sabin 97456. First separate edition of a revolutionary treatise on the relations between the American colonies and the colonising countries by the French economist Anne Robert Jacques Turgot (1727-1781). He explains his theory that the colonising countries should withdraw from the colonies on a friendly basis allowing the colonies to have their own goverment and trade with other countries independently. When the colonising countries would grant the colonies independence, they could still have the benefit of trading and settling there. The treatise was already composed in 1776 at the request of King Louis XVI, who solicited his ministers' opinions regarding the proper French policy toward the American Revolution. It was first published as Reflexions rédigées... in Mazzei's Recherches historiques et politiques (1788).A very good copy, only a few small spots.

      London: Printed for J. Roberts, in Warwick-Lane; J. Stagg, in Westminster Hall; and D. Browne, without Temple-Bar, 1727. Quarter-bound Leather. Very Good+. 4to: 80pp, with large folding copper-engraved frontispiece, "Procession of Kings and Queens with over 150 robed figures," measuring a full 44 cm x 35 cm, a second folding engraving, "The Manner of the Champions, performing the Ceremony of ye Challenge," and 12 woodcuts in the text depicting various ceremonial objects, including crowns, maces, scepters, and coronation rings. Bound in early (possibly contemporary) quarter sheep with marbled boards, rubbed along spine and corners; red morocco lettering piece, chipped but clearly legible; all edges marbled. Bookplate of Buddle Atkinson to front paste down. A sturdy, unsophisticated copy, frontispiece slightly foxed along folds, sporadic light soiling and browning, otherwise clean and bright. ESTC Citation No. T116211. Lowndes 526. Bindley pt. vi, 1039. Fourth Edition (reissue, with altered title page, of sheets from third edition). Full of fascinating information relating to the etiquette and procedure of royal ceremonies. Buddle Atkinson's bookplate appears in Hugo's Catalogue of Thomas Bewick's works, but it is, in fact, engraved on steel, not wood, and came from the workshop of Mark Lambert, one of Bewick's pupils. The plate was designed and engraved by George F. Robinson, who joined Lambert's workshop in 1841 and who, in the course of 50 years, became chief engraver and director of all art works carried out by the firm. The plate was produced when Atkinson (b.1841) was a young child, perhaps for putting in books that had been owned by his father, John Buddle, so it likely dates from 1845-1850. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.
