        THE TRAVELS AND ADVENTURES OF JAMES MASSEY. TRANSLATED FROM THE FRENCH

      London: Printed for John Watts, 1733.. [12],318,[6]pp. 12mo. Contemporary calf, sympathetically rebacked in matching calf, with raised bands and gilt labels. Engraved frontis (signed "G. Van der Guchte"). Early stamped insignia on front pastedown, modest tanning, but a very good copy. First edition in English of a significant imaginary voyage, of particular import for its relation to early conceptions of Australia. The first edition was published under a false Bordeaux, 1710 imprint, and three other editions appeared similarly dated. Recent authorities have sorted out the precedence, with the first edition being identified with some confidence as actually [Rouen, 1714]. The translator’s dedication is signed Stephen Whatley. Tyssot de Patot's novel "is a carefully written, well authenticated story of travel and adventure in Europe, in Africa, in Asia, and in an unknown land far beyond the Cape of Good Hope. The realism of the setting is based upon a close following of accounts of real travelers, such as Dellon, Tavernier, Mocquet, and Lahontan. There is nothing fantastic, unbelievable or overdrawn in the descriptions of the Austral continent. Tyssot seems to restrain himself consciously in order to write an apparently true story. Indirect criticism by the example of an imaginary and virtuous community is used here as in all the previous novels of the type. The journey to the unknown land is very carefully authenticated, as is the return journey... Discussions of science and religion are fitted into the adventures much more artistically than in the case of the novels of Foigny and Vairasse...From the point of the history of ideas...[it] is a very interesting document."- Atkinson. It is also notable for a reference to the Wandering Jew, as well as for a well-constructed bee fable. Atkinson, THE EXTRAORDINARY VOYAGE IN FRENCH LITERATURE FROM 1700 TO 1720, pp. [67]-97. NEGLEY 1118. Gove, THE IMAGINARY VOYAGE IN PROSE FICTION, pp. 217-19.

        Histoire des DÈcouvertes et Conquestes des Portugais

      Paris,: Chez Saugrain,, 1733.. Two volumes, quarto, with a portrait of Prince Henry the Navigator, a fine folding world map and fifteen other plates, one folding, mainly views and town plans; a good large copy in contemporary French mottled calf. First edition of this important work on Portuguese discoveries by an adventurous Jesuit missionary - the discoverer of ginseng. The foremost colonising power of Europe, Portugal was responsible for many of the discoveries in the East Indies and the Far East and Lafitau's book is an important work for this area.Lafitau was a French Jesuit priest, historian and missionary, an adventurous figure who spent many years in Canada, some of the time among the Iroquois; his experiences there formed the basis for his Moeurs des Sauvages Ameriquains, the pioneering anthropological study which influenced, among others, Rousseau and Chateaubriand and drew the vituperation of Voltaire.The insights and acumen he gained by his practical experience as a 'pioneer' were applied to this significant historical study of the grand age of Portuguese exploration. "This work is principally concerned with Portuguese voyages and explorations in the East Indies, China, Japan, and Melanesia. Many important references to Magellan are included. The introduction is an appreciation of Portuguese historians..." (Hill).Hill, 961; Silva, 779.

        A New History of the Holy Bible

      London - Printed for the author, 1733 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Thomas Stackhouse's popular self-published illustrated history of the Bible. First edition. Complete in two volumes. This work was originally to be called 'A Complete History of the Holy Bible'. Stackhouse had in May 1732 been approached by John Wilford and Thomas Edlin, to whom he owed money for books, to write a work for publication in parts, and had suggested this subject. He subsequently contracted with Edlin but soon fell out with him over payment and the rate of production of both copy and printed text. This quarrel led Edlin to engage John Campbell to take over the work, which he hurried out in 1733, though not before Stackhouse had published 'The Book-Binder, Book-Printer, and Book-Seller Confuted' (1732), defending himself and revealing Edlin's shortcomings as a publisher. Having shrewdly learned his lesson, Stackhouse completed his own text, now called 'A New History of the Holy Bible', and published it himself in 1733. Illustrated with maps and plates, each dedicated to a different member of the hierarchy of the Church of England, this book was based on wide reading and written in an accessible style. It proved to be a great success as a reliable work of reference. [DNB]With many beautiful engraved plates and maps, including a plan of the Temple of Solomon, maps of the travels of Jesus and St. Paul, a fold-out illustration of Noah's Ark and a plate depicting the Passover of the Jews. With previous owner's bookplate to front pastedown of one G. E. R. BrummerCondition: Expertly rebound in half calf bindings with marbled paper covered boards. Externally, sound with shelfwear and rubbing. Slight cracking to one joint. Internally, firmly bound. Foxing to first and last few pages but otherwise generally bright and clean with just the odd spot. Some pages have been repaired and one or two have very slight marginal loss. Some plates have been discreetly reinforced to repair curling or small closed tears. Closed tears to the Noah's Ark folding plate. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        Les Avantures de Monsieur Robert Chevalier, dit de Beauchene

      Amsterdam,: Aux Depens de la í,, 1733.. Two volumes in one, duodecimo, five plates, titles printed in red and black with engraved vignettes; slight waterstaining affecting only the margins, occasional ms. marginalia in a neat early hand, a good copy in later half red morocco, head of spine restored. An attractive copy of the second French edition of this important imaginary voyage and Canadian adventure based on the exploits of Robert Chevalier BeauchÍne.Le Sage (1668-1747) was a successful playwright and novelist, now chiefly remembered as the author of the picaresque novel Gil Blas. The novel claims to be derived from notes sent to Le Sage by BeauchÍne's widow, and is a heady confection of piratical life set in the wilds of eighteenth-century Canada. BeauchÍne is an Indian scout turned coast-prowling pirate, and the narrative recalls his bloodthirsty exploits in duels and ship-boardings, as well as his recollections of being sold into slavery in New England. It is difficult to sort the fact from the fiction in this rollicking tale - the Canadian Encyclopedia comments that Le Sage's work has 'many exaggerations and inaccuracies' - but it is a vivid account, concluding with BeauchÍne's return to France with his plundered loot, where he dies in a tavern brawl in Tours.

        OPERA

      London: John Pine, 1733. Second Issue (with "potest" error on p. 108 of volume II). Hardcover. One of the Century's Most Beautiful Books, inRemarkably Well-Preserved Morocco. 229 x 137 mm (9 x 5 3/8"). Lacking four leaves from subscriber lists. Two volumes. Edited by John Pine. Second Issue (with "potest" error on p. 108 of volume II). LOVELY LATE 18TH CENTURY BLUE-GREEN MOROCCO, GILT, BY CHRISTIAN KALTHOEBER (with his ticket on front pastedown of volume I), covers with single fillet border and delicate twining floral frame, diagonally placed vase tools facing inward at corners, flat spines with gilt-decorated red morocco bands, gilt compartments with a cresting frame enclosing a large central urn, red morocco titling labels, gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt. ENGRAVED THROUGHOUT, THE TEXT EMBELLISHED WITH LAVISH ROCOCO DECORATION including headpieces and tailpieces, initials, and numerous vignettes and large illustrations, 10 of them full-page. Front pastedown with 19th century bookplate of Lord Stanley of Alderley. Cohen-de Ricci 497; Rothschild 1548; Schweiger II, 408; Dibdin II, 108; Brueggemann, p. 585; Graesse III, 354; Brunet III, 320. Faint overall mottling and a few tiny dark spots on covers (perhaps soiling, but just as likely a natural variation in the leather), portions of the hinges cracked, but the paper still strong and nothing loose, small closed tear to gutter margin of frontispiece (not affecting image), frequent light offsetting, two openings a bit foxed, other trivial imperfections, but still QUITE AN ATTRACTIVE SET, the text smooth and fresh, and THE BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED BINDINGS VIRTUALLY UNWORN AND EXCEPTIONALLY LUSTROUS. This is an engraved book of celebrated beauty, offered here in decorative morocco by one of the leading binders of the day and in a state of preservation that far exceeds even the most sanguine expectations. Ray says that the book "marks a high point of Augustan taste" and adds that "Pine's complete command of his craft makes this the most elegant" of 18th century English books in which text and illustrations are entirely engraved. Brunet says that the book is remarkable for the elegance of its decoration and insists that it is more textually correct than generally recognized. The elegant decoration inside is matched in the present case by that on the outside. Our binder, Christian Kalthoeber, was considered to be one of the very finest craftsmen of the late 18th century; in fact, Maggs Catalogue 966 states flatly that "he was considered during his day to be the finest binder in the world." He came to London from Germany, along with several countrymen, in order to fill the need generated by the gentlemanly English fashion of forming large libraries filled with sumptuous bindings, working at first for the well-respected Baumgarten and then succeeding him in 1781. One of his bindings was priced at the unheard of sum of 30 guineas, and its reputation became such that George III insisted upon seeing it. Moreover, apparently because of the publicity surrounding his work, the Czarina made persistent efforts to induce Kalthoeber to come to St. Petersburg. The condition of our two volumes can only be described as exceptional, with gilt nearly as bright as the day it was applied. Pine's Horace is not especially rare, but copies like the present one, with its wide margins and wonderful contemporary binding, are very difficult to obtain.

        [Map of the Proposed Boundaries between Maryland and Pennsylvania]

      Philadelphia: Benjamin Franklin, 1733. Woodcut map, on laid paper, 16½ x 13 inches. (Old folds neatly repaired with tissue on verso). A major American map, the first produced in Philadelphia, by one of the greatest figures in American history. Benjamin Franklin's landmark map, showing Lord Baltimore's proposed boundary lines between Pennsylvania and Maryland, appeared in Franklin's printing of Articles of Agreement Made and Concluded upon Between...The Lord Proprietary of Maryland, and...the Proprietarys of Pensilvania (Philadelphia, 1733). Wheat and Brun note that this is the first map printed in the English colonies south of New York; they also indicate that it is possible that Benjamin Franklin himself cut the wood block from which this map was printed. Franklin executed the map after the original engraved version published the previous year by John Senex in London. One of the most momentous documents in American history, this map accompanied the original agreement between the proprietors of the colonies of Pennsylvania and Maryland to set the boundary between their provinces. The dividing line set forth here, later resurveyed as the Mason-Dixon line, famously came to be considered the dividing line in the United States between North and South. The story of the Penn-Baltimore Agreement and its accompanying cartography has been told in great detail by Nicholas Wainwright in his article "Tale of a Runaway Cape: The Penn-Baltimore Agreement of 1732." Wainwright's research remains the final word on the history of the document, a précis of which follows. From the time of William Penn's original grant of Pennsylvania in 1682, he was at loggerheads with the Lords Baltimore over the boundary line between the colonies. Sporadic efforts to resolve the problem finally became serious negotiations in 1731. Both sides put forward maps of their own as guides, and indeed, as Wainwright says, "The map was really the key to the Agreement." Baltimore insisted on the use of his map, and the Penns, who were under great money pressure and eager for an agreement, acceded, as they did to a number of Baltimore's demands. Baltimore's map was in due course taken to the shop of John Senex, in Fleet Street, where it was engraved. One proof strike of it, with a scale of miles, survives in the Penn Papers at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. The scale was later erased, and the map printed on each of the six final copies of the agreement. With the cartography agreed to, the rest of the bargain was quickly struck, and signed on February 10, 1732. Baltimore and each of the Penn brothers signed the document and placed their seals on its bottom edge. When the agreement was reported in America in 1733 the machinery was set in motion to survey the boundaries. But the deal was unpopular in Maryland, and Lord Baltimore soon discovered another problem - his map was inaccurate, and the mislocation of Cape Henelopen gave the Penns more land than he had thought. As a result, he tried to nullify the agreement. In response, Thomas Penn contracted with Franklin to produce an American edition of the Articles..., complete with a map, "so that anyone reading its articles could judge for himself how unreasonably Baltimore's commissioners were behaving" (Wainwright). He took his original document to Franklin's shop, where the text and map were copied and reproduced in an edition of 500 copies. "Franklin charged the Penns £19.8.4. for the work entailed in producing this volume: £7.10.0. for printing 5 sheets at 30s. per sheet, £5.16.8. for 5 5/6 reams at 20s., £1.10.0. for stitching 500 books and pasting the maps and £2.11.8. for printing and paper of the map" (Miller). With his colony unhappy and feeling he had given up more than intended, Calvert continued to try and abrogate the agreement. As a result, in 1734 he sued them in Chancery Court in London, charging fraud. The Penns, naturally, replied that it was based on Baltimore's map, not theirs. From this lawsuit, which was wrangled over for the next sixteen years, came a string of printed documents, all now very rare, in which the parties set out their arguments. In the course of these the Senex map was reprinted from the same plate various times. Finally, in 1750, the Penns won the case, with costs, and the surveying could again proceed. A number of abortive attempts were made to survey the boundary, before the two sides finally employed Mason and Dixon to make the final survey in 1763-1768. This, the first American issue of the original Senex map, preceded all of this later wrangling. It is one of the first half-dozen maps printed in the colonial United States, the first of these being the Hubbard map in 1677. The others were printed in the decade preceding this map, in either Boston or New York. None of these survive in more than a few copies. Lawrence Wroth in the Annual Report of the JCB for 1946-47, remarks that, "the identity of the American copyist of 1733 is unknown, but if we remember that before this time Franklin had taught himself enough of the engravers art to make small woodcuts of various sorts and plates for paper money, it is not entirely unreasonable to suggest that he may have copied the London map with his own hand."

        Histoire de poissons contenant la déscription anatomique de leurs parties externes et internes, & le caractere des divers genres rangés pas classe et par ordres

      Amand Konig, With 4 folding engraved plates. Contemporary paper-covered boards, rebacked; a fine copy. First edition of this very interesting work on the anatomy of fishes, in Latin and French on opposite pages. Gouan's history basically consists of full anatomical descriptions, with engravings by Weiss from Gouan's illustrations. Of particular interest are his remarkable observations on muscular movement. The descriptive classification of fish were probably intended as an introduction to a true general natural history of ichthyology. The book was quite popular both in France and following its translation into German.& & Goüan (1733-1821), a physician and professor of botany at Montpellier, was one of the first proponents in France of Linnaeus' methods and nomenclature. As a strict follower of the Linnaean school he only paid attention to exterior characters. According to Pietsch, it should be noted that the anatomy he gives includes a myology rather new for the time. &

        Opere fisico-mediche stampate e manoscritte... raccolte da Antonio suo Figliuolo, corredate d'una Prefazione...

      Venezia, S. Coleti, 1733. 3 volumes. Folio (355 x 225mm). pp. (2), lxxxii, 469; (4), 551; (4), 676, with 92 engraved plates, 3 engraved title-vignettes, 2 engraved plates of portraits one of Vallisnieri and the other one of Contessa Celia Grilla-Borromea, to whom one of the works is dedicated and some engravings in the text. Contemporary half calf, a bit rubbed (frontcover hinge of first volume splitting). First edition of Vallisnieri's collected works. It was edited by his son Antonio and contains all his famous contributions on zoology, entomology, medicine, geology and natural history. Antonio Vallisnieri (1666-1730) was a pupil of Malpighi at Bologna. "In comparison with contemporary scientific thought, Vallisnieri's work has a very modern character - as Redi had already done - the way opened by Galileo (whom he quotes only twice) and Francis Bacon (whom he also quotes) he rejected Scholastic knowledge and trusted solely in direct observation and in experiment... Vallisnieri was thus one of the first modern naturalist to have a clear awareness of the character of scientific phenomena" (DSB). Vallisinieri did a.o. extensive research on the reproductive system of men and animals, he complemented to Redi's demonstration of the fallacy of the hypothesis of spontaneous generation and was a forerunner of evolutionary concepts. Small paper repair to title-pages. B.M. (Nat. Hist.) V, 2191; Nissen ZBI, 4226.

Il frontespizio del I tomo ha il titolo stampato in caratteri rossi e neri., ogni frontespizio ha una vignetta incisa in rame da Alessandro dalla Via ripetuta (cm. 10,5x6,5 raffig. Minerva e Mercurio), numerosi capolettera figurati. L'edizione è riccamente illustrata da complessive 97 tavole (alcune risultano posposte), e 2 ritratti incisi in rame. l'altro di Clelia Grillo Borromeo (alla nobildonna è dedicato il trattato dei Corpi marini). Nel dettaglio vol I: 1 tavola incisa in rame n.t. (p. XLI ritratto del Vallisneri e medaglione allegorico) e complessive 52 tavole incise in rame la maggior parte a piena pagina e alcune a mezza pagina tutte comprese in 43 fogli f.t. e 2 n.t. ( insetti, alghe, rane, camaleonti, sezioni del cervello del bue, piante) e 1 piccola tavola in rame nel testo (a pagina 379). Vol. II: 36 tavole incise in rame di cui 35 fuori testo (2 ripieg.) e 1 a piena pagina n.t. (mostri umani e marini, crostacei, pesci, anguille...), 1 ritratto n.t. di Clelia Grillo Borromeo, inciso in rame da Marco Antonio Dal Re (p. 306), 1 figura intercalata inc. in rame (raffig. l'isola di Zante). Vol. III: 4 tavole inc. in rame fuori testo e 4 tavole minori nel testo (di cui 1 incisa su legno). Freschi esemplari in ottime condizioni. Si tratta dell'Opera Omnia di Antonio Vallisneri, raccolta e pubblicata dal figlio Antonio tre anni dopo la morte del padre. Lo scienziato (1661-1730), medico, naturalista e biologo è anche conosciuto per essere stato uno dei primi ricercatori in medicina ad aver proposto l'abbandono della teoria aristotelica in favore dell'approccio sperimentale basato sui principi scientifici sostenuti da Galileo Galilei. Vallisneri affermava che la conoscenza scientifica è acquisita tramite l'esperienza e il ragionamento. Questo è il principio che lui seguì per le sezioni anatomiche e la descrizione degli insetti. Per questa ragione la sua carriera medica fu al centro di una spinosa controversia, poiché molti dei suoi contemporanei non potevano abbandonare le teorie medioevali, a quel tempo dominanti, anche di fronte all'evidenza sperimentale. Aveva uno stile di scrittura chiaro e preciso. Egli seguì le tracce di Galilei nell'utilizzare la lingua italiana per scrivere i suoi trattati, e fu uno dei più ammirati scrittori di scienza dagli studiosi di tradizione galileiana, come Francesco Redi e Lorenzo Magalotti. La scelta dell'italiano come lingua per le sue opere fu molto coraggiosa per la comunità scientifica del tempo, che usava ancora il latino come "lingua del sapere". Bibl.: Sabia "Le Opere di A. Vallisneri", pp. 126-131

Plates generally quite clean and always pleasing, with faintest waterstaining to lower portion of plate 6 (only). All edges speckled red.. Folio (30.2 cm, 11.875"). [4], x, 200 pp.; pp. [201–202]. 6 fold-out plts. [bound with] Tull, Jethro. A supplement to the essay on horse-hoing husbandry.... London: Pr. for and sold by the author, and may be had at Mr. Mills's, London, at John Aitkins's, Esq, in Edinburgh, and at the Bear in Hungerford, Berks., 1736. Folio. pp. [203–205], 206–69; [1] pp.Improvements in farming founded on a scientific basis made British agriculture one of the strongest in Europe in the 18th century. Though called to the bar, Jethro Tull (1674–1741) never practiced law, but devoted himself to farming on land that had belonged to his father. From the beginning he set about trying to discover ways of doing things better, including inventing a number of implements, as this work reveals both in text and in image. His work proved very successful — Tull's "seed drills" revolutionized planting techniques — and it saw a number of editions; it was translated into French, whence it proved influential on the Continent.This volume's => six beautifully engraved, pleasantly intelligible plates ("W. Thorpe, sculp.) illustrate some of Tull's inventions, including improved plows and drills for planting seeds.First printed in London in 1731, Horse-hoing is here (likely) the fourth edition; it is only the second London (and it is the first in folio), but there were also apparently two Dublin editions of 1731. Bound with it is the first edition of the interesting Supplement issued in 1736, directed largely to answering Tull's detractors. The first title is fairly widely held, in libraries; the latter, much less so.

        The Doctrine of Chances: Or, A Mehtod of Calculating the Probabilities of Events in Play. The Second Edition, Fuller, Clearer, and more Correct than the First.London: H. Woodfall, 1738.

      A beautiful copy of the important second edition of this classic, as it is the first to contain De Moivre's main contribution to the field, i.e., his work on the normal distribution, which "became the most fruitful single instrument of discovery used in probability theory and statistics for the next two centuries." (DSB, IX: 452-453). De Moivre's result was first published in a privately circulated pamphlet which today is known in just six copies.<br/><br/> "In 1733, twenty years after the publication of James and Nicholas Bernoulli's results, de Moivre succeeded in finding a simple and accurate approximation to the binomial distribution. He considered this result so important that he printed a seven-page paper, <i>Approximatio ad Summam Terminorum Binomii (a+b)<sup>n</sup> in Serium expansi</i>, for private circulation. The Latin pamphlet was translated by de Moivre himself, and with some additions it was included in the second and third editions of the <i>Doctrine of Chances</i> (1738, pp.235-243; 1756, pp.243-254) under the title, 'A Method of approximating the Sum of the Terms of the Binomial <i>(a+b)<sup>n</sup></i> expanded into a Series, from where are deduced some practical Rules to Estimate the Degree of Assent which is to be given to Experiments.' The last sentence of the title refers to the comments to the original results given in 1738 and 1756. Only six copies of the <i>Approximatio</i> have been found" (Anders Hald: A History of Probability and Statistics and their Applications before 1750, p.485). See also Stephen Stigler: The History of Statistics, pp.70-77.. Large 4to: 273 x 223 mm, pp [4] xiv 258 [1:errata].

Late 18th- or early 19th-century speckled calf, round spine gilt extra, boards plain; two red leather spine labels on each volume with author/title and volume number, all edges marbled. Leather of four boards slightly abraded with loss of some leather, otherwise a binding in remarkably good (and strong) condition, especially notable for tomes of this size. Ex-library with bookplates but no stamps, the set generally shows offsetting from leather of binding to endpapers and otherwise light foxing and the odd spot only, with light evidence of old, mild exposure to moisture at some margins. => A very handsome set in very good condition, valuable both as precisely what it is *and* as representing a whole grand era/category of scholarship and book production.. Folio extra (41 cm; 16" ). 4 vols. I: [4] ff., xvii, [1], 979, [1] pp. II: [2] ff., xxviii, 934 pp., [1] f.

Vols. I, II, and III were printed in 1733 by Vincent but vol. IV was delayed until 1759 when Debure printed it .All volumes are => elegantly printed in double-column format placing => the original Greek text in the inner columns, the Latin translation in the outer, and commentary/notes in a smaller font below, with ease of navigation enhanced by additional side- and shouldernotes. Title-pages in black and red, and initials and head- and tailpieces both woodcut and engraved, grace and support the scholarly production; the title-pages are well laid out, the initials are various and sometimes large. Three => page-spanning engravings appear in addition, each one-third page in height, with the first two depicting Clement XII (with putti, after Gravelot and signed by N. Dupuis) and the second depicting a complex scene of martyrdom (signed Jac. de Savanne) &#151; these in vol. I, while vol. IV boasts an unsigned companion image showing a scene of judgment or law-giving.Origen's works are among the foundational works of Christian thought and were read by all of the church fathers. He had a profound influence on the history of ideas in the fields of theology, philology, and preaching from late antique times to the present.Vols. I, II, and III were edited by Charles de La Rue and IV by C.V. de La Rue.This => large folio edition is "ex variis editionibus, & codicibus manu exaratis, Gallicanis, Ialicis, Germanicis & Anglicis collecta, recensita, Latine versa, atque annotationibus illustrata, cum copiosis indicibus, vita auctoris, & multis dissertationibus.

        Dudaim eller Andelige blommor, [...] efter auctoris död uppå mångens åstundan och begiäran nu å nyo andra gången uplagdt och i sin tilbörlige krantz infästade. [1]-3.

      Stockholm, Benjamin Gottlieb Schneider, 1733. 4:o. [viii] + 24, 27-98; + [viii] + 232; + [viii] + 104 s. Samtida nött skinnband, ryggen med senare titelfält i skinn; skadat rygghuvud, svag och lagad främre fals, invändigt ngt solkad och nött, ett blad med flottfläck, ett par blad med marginalrevor. Utan porträttet. Ett arbetsexemplar med andra ord, vilket i detta fall är en särskild poäng!Proveniens: P. D. A. Atterbom (1790-1855), uppenbarligen därefter gåva till Johan Henrik Schröder, med noteringen "amico suo tessera amicitiae", till vilket Schröder fogat sin egen namnteckning. Senare hos Carl Sjögren (förvärvsanteckning från bokauktion i Uppsala 1856); exlibris från pansarbåtsauktionen 1912 (nr. 699, skänkt av fru M. Fahlberg å Thorsätra, Kungsängen), där den köptes av Christian Lovén, som även försåg den med sitt exlibris. Därtill en med boken samtida namnteckning, Sven Stillman.. Andra, utökade upplagan av Runius' Dudaim. Sista delen avslutas med en innehållsförteckning till hela verket. Atterbom avhandlar Runius och hans "rimskrifter", Dudaim, i Svenska siare och skalder, 2, 1843, särskilt s. 184-201. Några tvillingsjälar var de dock inte, Atterbom saknade enligt Kulling sinne för det 'grovkorniga karolinska skämtlynnet' och kände större sympati för blida lyriker såsom Columbus och Frese. (Jacob Kulling, Atterboms "Svenska siare och skalder" (1931), s. 216-17.Schröder och Atterbom kunde inte undgå att bli bekanta i Uppsala; 1839 utgav de tillsammans med Palmblad tidskriften Mimer och 1849 hörde Schröder till det fåtal vänner i akademiska konsistoriet som röstade för att Atterbom skulle beviljas tjänstledighet från sin proffessur, bl.a. för att avsluta Svenska siare och skalder

        The Argument of the Lord Keeper Sommers, On His Giving Judgment

      1733. Somers, John, Baron [1651-1716]. The Argument of the Lord Keeper Sommers, On His Giving Judgment in the Bankers Case: Deliver'd in the Exchequer-Chamber, June 23, 1696. [London]: Printed by E. and R. Nutt, and R. Gosling, 1733. [ii], 128 pp. Quarto (8" x 7"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into recent marbled boards, printed paper title label to spine. Soiling to title page and verso of final leaf, light foxing to a few leaves. Early shelf label to head of title page, annotations to two leaves, interior otherwise clean. * Only edition and the only complete account. This case was an unfortunate moment in Somers's otherwise brilliant career. (He was an important Whig jurist, Lord Chancellor during the reigns of William & and Mary and Queen Anne and framer of the English Bill of Rights). "In the most important case which came before him in the exchequer chamber, that of the bankers who had recovered judgment in the court of exchequer for arrears of interest due to them as assignees of certain perpetual annuities charged by Charles II upon the hereditary excise as security for advances, he expended some hundreds of pounds and an immense amount of thought and research, with no better result than to defeat an intrinsically just claim, on the technical ground that it was not cognisable in the court of exchequer, but only by petition of right. No judgment so elaborate had ever been delivered in Westminster Hall as that by which, in November 1696, he reversed the decision of the court of exchequer.": (DNB). This decision was reversed by the House of Lords three years later. Despite Somers's importance, few accounts of his legal work exist today; it is known mostly through summaries.

      Oxford Arms in Warwick-Lane, London: J Roberts, 1733 EXTRA illustrated. Bound in full brown leather, rabbit hunting scene by horse in gilt within gilt box to front cover, rear cover has gilt image of fox head and laurels. Spine has been relaid at some stage, but keeping the original which has raised bands, lots of gilt tooling, hunting scenes, title in gilt. Internally, gilt tooling to turn ins, marbled endpapers, front and rear blanks have some light foxing to edges, decorative B&W frontis, text block head in gilt, title page in red and black ink within double black ink lines, followed by 92 pages of text with 12 coloured plates and 36 B&W plates, all with tissue guards, by Howill (mainly), Woodward and Cruickshank, Rowlandson, Tomson, McKenzie, Gilpin, Marshall, Cooper etc. Many of Howitt&#39;s plates are dated 1798 or 99 and some state that they were also republished by Edward Orme in 1812 (his sporting book?). There is a wonderful double page pen and ink plate by Rowlandson. The coloured plates are mostly, 1801 or 2. Articles and plates on Horses, Foxhunting, Hare running, Shewing a Horse, Hare Hunting, Otter hunting, The Badger and more. Fascinating. Copac states copies at V&A and the National trust. It was originally published in 1733 and there were supposedly copies of it reproduced in 1803 and possibly later. It also states that it came with 1 plate, so the remainder were tipped in at a later stage?. All a bit of a mystery but a wonderful book, and possibly a little uncommon! (Halkett & Laing state author was Thomas Gosden) (pencil note to fep states author was not Gosden but by Rev Mr Squire Am, Chancellor of Wells?) (ESTC N31090
