      London: for W. Innys and R. Manby, and T. Woodward, 1731 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. 2nd Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 1731, (6) viii (4) 376 pp., 19 engraved plates by S. Gribelin (Vol. I); 1733, xxii, (26), 361, (23) pp. (Vol. II). 8vo (19.5x12.5cm). Interior browned, Vol. II with the leaf before the title announcing the Royal Society's authorisation of publication, some dampstaining to the end. Ownership inscription H(enry?) Pemberton on flyleaf of Vol. 1. Contemporary full calfs, rebacked. PMM 189, Horblit 45b. - FIRST EDITION of Vol. 2 and SECOND EDITION of vol. 1. Hales applied his training in biology and mathematics (including physics) to make important scientific investigations presented in these separately published volumes. The first volume, Vegetable staticks, Hales describes his investigations of plant physiology, including the movement of water in plants and determining the three factors of water movement: root suction, root pressure and leaf suction. He also established that plants lose water continuously during transpiration through leaves. His quantitative measurements of these phenomena enabled him to show the rate of transpiration varied with temperature. Hales established that plants do not have true circulation system, and developed techniques of measuring the varying growth rates in different plant structures. The second volume, or Haemastaticks, 'contains the studies on blood pressure which make Hales one of the founders of modern experimental physiology. The application of the principle of the pressure-gauge or manometer enabled him to measure blood pressure during the contraction of the heart. He computed the circulation rate and estimated the velocity of the blood in the veins, arteries and capillary vessels and by showing that the capillary vessels are liable to constriction and dilation he made an important contribution both to the study of physiology and the practice of the physician of today ... Hales' work marked the greatest advance in the physiology of the circulation between Harvey and the introduction of the mercury manometer and other instruments for the measurement of blood pressure by J.L.M. Poiseuille in 1828' (PMM)..

        Plate 91 - Cereus flagellifornis. Linn. Cierge serpentant (cactus)

      Pierre Joseph Buchoz (1731-1807)Illustrated plate from Les Dons Merveilleux et Diversement Coloriés de la Nature dans Le Règne VègètaleParis, 1779-1783Hand-colored copperplate engravingSheet size: 18 ½? x 11 ¼?Pierre Joseph Buchoz (also spelled Buc'hoz) was a French lawyer, physician, botanist and naturalist and was very interested in the medicinal virtues of various plants. He was also a prolific author of botanical books in the latter half of the 18th century. Born in Metz (France), Buchoz was meant for a career in law, but soon turned to medicine, and was appointed as the physician to King Stanislaus of Poland when he was 28. Accused of not fulfilling his duties, Buchoz quit, and devoted his energies to the study of botany, medicine, economics and mineralogy, eventually publishing over 300 volumes on these subjects. Although he is held in low esteem by the scientific botanists, due to his persistence in re-using plates with different attributions, his decorative and artistic sense places him high in the ranks of eighteenth-century flower book authors.

        THE MERRY-THOUGHT: OR, THE GLASS-WINDOW AND BOG-HOUSE MISCELLANY. TAKEN FROM THE ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPTS WRITTEN IN DIAMOND BY PERSONS OF THE FIRST RANK AND FIGURE IN GREAT BRITAIN; RELATING TO LOVE, MATRIMONY, DRUNKENNESS, SOBRIETY, RANTING, SCANDAL, POLITICKS, GAMING, AND MANY OTHER SUBJECTS, SERIOUS AND COMICAL. FAITHFULLY TRANSCRIBED FROM THE DRINKING GLASSES AND WINDOWS IN THE SEVERAL NOTED TAVERNS, INNS, AND OTHER PUBLICK PLACES IN THE NATION.

      London: Printed for J. Roberts in Warwick-Lane ..., [nd. but ca. 1731].. [8],24;[2],28pp. Octavo. 19th century pebbled morocco. Identical engraved frontis to each part, signed "H. Burgh Sculpt." Binding worn at extremities and joints (but sound), internally quite nice, very good or better. Bookplate. First edition of each part. A fascinating collection, in two independent parts, of jests, graffiti and doggerel, represented as collected from public houses, bog houses and store fronts about Britain and Ireland. Some of the examples are barbs aimed at public or private figures, others are coarse or sexual, many relate to the writers' state of drunkenness, and yet others are simply the exercises of amateurs with a thought to express (sometimes while occupied otherwise). Third and fourth parts also appeared, conjecturally dated by ESTC the following year, as did subsequent editions or reissues. All are uncommon, and the first edition of the first part is rare. Case records the first editions of the first and second parts only from notices/adverts in the GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE (October and November 1731) and FOG'S WEEKLY JOURNAL, but did locate copies and collates the later parts and editions. ESTC locates three copies of the first part (Advocates Library, BL and the Bodleian - none in North America), and nine copies of the second (Huntington, McMaster, Princeton and Illinois in North America). CASE 369(I)(a) and 369(2)(b) note. ESTC T141567 and T141568.

        THE NEW TESTAMENT OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST TRANSLATED OUT OF THE LATIN VULGAT BY JOHN WICLIF, S.T.P. PREBENDARY OF AUST IN THE COLLEGIATE CHURCH OF WESTBURY, AND RECTOR OF LUTTERWORTH, ABOUT 1378. TO WHICH IS PRÆFIXT A HISTORY OF THE SEVERAL TRANSLATIONS OF THE H. BIBLE AND N. TESTAMENT, &C. INTO ENGLISH, BOTH IN MS AND PRINT, AND OF THE MOST REMARKABLE EDITIONS OF THEM SINCE THE INVENTION OF PRINTING

      London: Sold by Thomas Page and William Mount ..., 1731.. [2],iv,[4],108,[2],[3]-156,viiipp. Folio. Old calf, rebacked and recornered in the 20th century to style in brown calf, raised bands, lettered in gilt. Two fine engraved portraits, one folding plate. Three bookplates on front pastedown, modest tanning, some very tiny worm tracks in extreme edges of the portrait of Wycliffe, divisional title and first leaf of text of the NT nearly detached at gutter and a bit creased, light occasional foxing, a few short tears at the fore-edge of the folding plate, otherwise a very good copy. First printing in book form of Wycliffe's translation of the New Testament, accompanied by the extensive prefatory "History..." by John Lewis. At Wycliffe's instigation, a group of scholars prepared this translation into Middle English of the New Testament from the Latin Vulgate in 1380, and though popular, it circulated only in manuscript until this edition. Over two hundred manuscript versions are known, many of them of the revised version prepared by John Purvey. In 1409 the Wycliffe version was condemned as heretical and outlawed in Britain. This edition was published by subscription, and the edition, including some copies on large paper, is reported to have consisted of only 160 copies. An advertisement leaf, a list of subscribers, and a page of errata follow the dedication. The frontis portrait of John Lewis and the portrait of Wycliffe are signed in the plate by G. White, and the engraved folding plate is based on the frontis of the Cranmer Bible. While well represented in institutions, copies of this edition are uncommon in the market place: ABPC records only three appearances since 1999, and only one of them, the Macclesfield copy sold in 2006, was complete with both the portraits, as is this copy. ESTC T95000. DARLOW & MOULE (HERBERT) 1011. MACCLESFIELD SALE vii:2452.
