      Sumptibus Ioannis Georgii Cottae, Tübingen 1763 - Editio nova, prioribus correctior. 3 Bde. Tübingen, Sumptibus Ioannis Georgii Cottae, 1763-1765. 4to.

Der wichtigste Pandektenkommentar im süddeutschen Raum im Zeitalter des usus modernus pandectarum! - Zum Kreis der wichtigsten Kommentare des "usus modernus pandectarum" zählt ohne Zweifel das Collegium von Lauterbach (1618-1678), des führenden Juristen des württembergischen Rechtskreises. Lauterbach war der bedeutendste Rechtslehrer an der Universität Tübingen im Zeitalter des Jus Commune und steht durchaus mit den großen Juristen wie Mevius und Carpzov auf einer Stufe. Er nahm mit seinen Werken grossen Einfluss auf die Rechtsentwicklung im süddeutschen Raum. Die Überarbeitung des gesamten Zivilrechts, insbesondere die Harmonisierung von einheimischem und römischem Recht, aber auch der Rechtstheorie und der Rechtspraxis war eine der großen Aufgaben dieser Zeit. In seinen Collegien nahm Lauterbach diese juristische Arbeit in Angriff. In den Jahren 1662 bis 1676 erörterte Lauterbach schwerpunktmäßig auf der Grundlage der Pandekten den Zivilrechtsstoff. Diese Erörterungen in der Legalordnung der Pandekten bildeten im Zusammenhang ein Compendium der Pandekten, das die Zivilrechtslehre dieser Zeit prägnant und punktgenau darstellt. Lauterbach kam bis zum 17. Buch und nach seinem Tode vollendete sein Tübinger Kollege Burkhard Bardilius (1629-1692) das Opus bis zum 50. Buch. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Theoria philosophiae naturalis redacta ad unicam legem virium in natura existentium. Editio Veneta prima ipso auctore praesente, et corrigente

      Venice: Remondini, 1763 Book. Near Fine. Hardcover. 3rd Edition. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to (261 x 203 mm). xl, 311, [4] pp.; title printed in red and black and with engraved vignette, 4 folding copper plates. 3 bookplates on inner front cover. The 4 leaves (Rr) at end with the "Catalogus operum P. Rogerii Josephi Boscovich", errata on leave Rr4 verso, quire Qq misbound. Large paper copy, internally quite fresh and clean. Contemporary vellum, title in gilt on spine. Some foxing, head of spine a little worn. Provenance: bookplate Charles Atwood Kofoid (American Zoologist); George Wilbraham of Delamere House, Northwich Cheshire (bookplate); Verne Roberts, Bibliotheca Mechanica (bookplate) and Andreas Gedeon. (bookplate), Christie's sale 5442, April 23, 2008. --- Riccardi I/1, 180; Honeyman Coll. 428; Roller-G. I, 146; de Backer-S. I, 1841; see PMM 203 and Norman 277 for 1st edition. - Third (first Venetian) edition of Boscovich's fundamental work in the history of scientific thought, a precursor of modern atomic theory by the eminent Dalmatian Jesuit mathematician and polymath. "Boskovich's theory influenced the position of nineteenth-century field physics with regard to the relations between space and matter; it was employed by Faraday and Kelvin, and J. J. Thomson used its curve of forces to introduce the earliest concepts of atomic physics" (Norman). The bookplate of Charles Atwood Kofoid (1865-1947) is interesting; there are planktonic organisms about to be hauled into the plankton net being towed by the research vessel. Kofoid was born in Illinois in 1865, did his undergraduate work at Oberlin College, and received his PhD in Zoology from Harvard in 1894. He was at the University of Michigan for a year, and for five and a half years, he was Superintendent of the Illinois Biological Station, where he wrote numerous articles and books, including the massive The Plankton of the Illinois River 1894-1899. He next went to the University of California at Berkeley where he was a leading member of the faculty for twenty-five years. Look at the upper left end of the bookplate; the campanile (bell tower) seen outside the window is the one on the Berkeley campus of the University of California. Kofoid was one of the leading investigators in protozoology and limnology, and was the developer of what came to be known as the Kofoid Bucket, a device used in the collection of planktonic samples. The associates of Professor Kofoid are said to have been always impressed by the succession of arrivals of packages of books, which did not cease until his death in 1947. A few months before his death, he gave the University more than 40,000 volumes, including many rare works in the history of science and medicine..

        Manuscript Document Recording the Sale of a Slave in Colonial New York

      12 July 1763., [New York], - Single leaf (7 3/4 x 9), five lines of text, plus signatures, remnants of wax seal. Creases whee folded, some folds at edges, one small hole at fold, a bit of staining, normal aging and browning. The document records the sale of a Negro man, named Tom, by Solomon Smith to Joseph Smith for 100 pounds. Interestingly, payment was not expected until next Chrismas. Since the buyer and seller had the same last name, this was perhaps an 'all in the family' transaction. While the exact location is not given, the sale did take place in New York at the close of the French and Indian War. The document is signed by Zophar Scidmore, Isaac Schidmore, and Joseph Smith.The Scidmore family was from upstate New York, and Zophar Scidmore is listed in the family geology as a loyalist during the Revolution.

        OSSERVAZIONI TEORICO-PRATICHE SOPRA IL GIUOCO DEGLI SCACCHI Ossia il giuoco degli scacchi esposto nel suo miglior lume da Giambatista Lolli, Modenese. Opera novissima.

      Bologna, nella Stamp. di S. Tommaso d'Aquino, 1763. In-4 p. (mm. 307x210), cartoncino rustico coevo (risg. rifatti), tit. ms. al dorso (con abras.), pp.num. (4),632. Dedica dell’autore al nobile fra Antonio Montecuccoli. “Contenente le leggi fondamentali: i precetti più purgati: le migliori aperture: le più essenziali terminazioni del Giuoco: una scelta Centuria di elegantissimi partiti: in somma tutto il migliore degli antichi e moderni Autori, e Giuocatori riformato, ricorretto, ed appianato conforme l’esigenza, e arricchito (oltre un Indice copioso ed esatto) di moltissimi avvertimenti, e dichiarazioni valevoli ad istruir pienamente chiunque desideri d’apprendere con fondamento le regole, gli artifizi, e le finezze di questo nobil Giuoco”. "Prima ed unica edizione" del trattato del Lolli, giocatore e teorico degli scacchi (Nonantola 1698-1769). La sua importante opera integra e continua quella dell’Anonimo Modenese (Ercole del Rio) "Sopra il Giuoco degli Scacchi" (1750), arricchendola di note e completandola con un centinaio di finali di cui molti originali. Vi sono comprese: una lettera di Del Rio, inviata ad un amico in cui espone alcuni precetti generali, considerata a lungo “"carta fondamentale" per il gioco degli scacchi in Italia; una seconda lettera di Del Rio, in cui venne recensito il libro di “"Philidor"”; alcuni commenti teorici delle partite; cento partiti pratici (finali), di cui 29 di Del Rio, e 11 dello stesso Lolli; tre partiti di sottilità (problemi) del Lolli. Il Del Rio fu uno degli avversari preferiti dal Lolli, e otto posizioni di partite giocate fra i due grandi modenesi nel 1755,1756 e 1757, vennero pubblicate nella presente edizione. Nell’Ottocento l’opera del Lolli godette di grande fortuna. Cfr. Gay “Bibl. du jeu des échecs", p. 194: “Cet ouvrage, enrichi de notes importantes sur le jeu des échecs selon la méthode italienne, comprend à la fin du volume une centaine de bonnes positions critiques de lui et de différents autres” - Choix de Olschki,II,2600. Fresco esemplare con barbe, ben conservato, in astuccio moderno.

        The Holy Bible, Containing the Old Testament and the New: Translated out of the Original Tongues and With the former Translations Diligently Compared and Revised

      Birmingham: John Baskerville, Printer to the University, 1763. The third variant of the Subscriber's list, with the most names, ending with that of the Hon. Charles York, Esq, Attorney General. [1146] pp. Folio. Bound in full dark blue straight-grained morocco, covers tooled in gilt with wide Greek key and drawer handle border with floral cornerpieces, narrow gilt filet-bordered rectangles tooled all over with drawer handle and sunburst tools and semé off small dots, with central gilt-stamped L with crown, spine with six double raised bands, titled in one compartment, stamped with owner's name ("Frederic Powys") in another, and the rest richly gilt, a.e.g., pink endsheets, by Staggemeier and Welcher, with their circular pink paper label on front pastedown. Front joint and headcap with conservation repairs of the highest quality, light foxing to text. The third variant of the Subscriber's list, with the most names, ending with that of the Hon. Charles York, Esq, Attorney General. [1146] pp. Folio. Baskerville's Masterpiece, in Staggemeier & Welcher Binding. The 1763 edition of Baskerville's Bible has always been recognised as his masterpiece and is one of the high-points in the history of printing in Britain. This beautiful and monumental binding can be closely dated because Thomas Powys, formerly MP for Northamptonshire, was created Baron Lilford in 1797, and Staggemeier & Welcher are recorded in partnership on Villiers Street as of 1799. By 1810, Welcher was in business alone at that address. The Hon and Rev. Frederic Powys, whose name appears on the spine, was the third son of the first Lord Lilford; he married in 1807. Whether the binding was commissioned for his taking holy orders or on the occasion of his marriage can only be conjectured. A landmark of printing, in a splendid binding. Nixon, p. 184; Gaskell, Bibliography of John Baskerville, 26; Ramsden p. 135. Provenance: Frederic Powys (his name tooled in gilt to spine, Lilford Library booklabel)

Er starb 3. März 1871 auf seiner Besitzung Hugstetten bei Freiburg. - Andlaw-Birseck schrieb u.a. Der Aufruhr und Umsturz in Baden, als eine natürliche Folge der Landesgesetzgebung (Freiburg, 1850), Priestertum und christliches Leben (Freiburg, 1865) sowie mehrere Flugschriften polemischen Inhalts. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878).

Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -

      [Florence: ca. 1763]. This handsome manuscript, prepared for presentation to Emperor Francis I (1708-65), Holy Roman Emperor and Grand Duke of Tuscany, is a beautifully written contemporary fair copy of the original holograph manuscript now in the Museo Galileo (formerly the Institute and Museum of the History of Science in Florence), compiled by Targioni-Tozzetti (1712-83), the great natural historian, librarian, director of Florence's botanical garden, and professor of botany. He was, after Spallanzani, the most active Italian naturalist of the 18th century. Emperor Francis I, the husband of Maria Theresa, was well-known for his interests in the natural sciences and for assisting his wife in running the complicated Austrian dominions. The collections of natural history specimens in the "Specola" next to the Pitti Palace trace their origins to earlier Medicis and to Georg Eberhard Rumpf, who had sold a large collection of 360 shells to Cosimo III de' Medici in 1682. The present catalogue was compiled at the instigation of Antoniotto Botta Adorno (1688-1774), prime minister of the Duchy of Tuscany. Thanks to Cosimo III's other natural history acquisitions, by the middle of the 18th century, Florence could boast one of the greatest collections of shells, botanical, and mineralogical samples in Europe. In 1775, all the collections were gathered into the "Specola" at the instigation of Grand Duke Peter Leopold which was the only scientific museum or "Wunderkammer" of its kind specifically created for the public to view. The present catalogue, following Targioni-Tozzetti's original manuscript, describes 3449 items, of which 2340 are zoological (mostly shells), 375 botanical, and 734 mineralogical and rock specimens. The preface to the catalogue describes the collections and their histories, their provenances including the Far East, etc. The main body of the catalogue is divided into three sections: zoological, botanical, and mineralogical samples. Each description is quite elaborate with full accounts of each specimen, references to other books, references to where other examples are illustrated, etc. Provenance: This manuscript entered the Apponyi family library in Oponice, Slovakia in the latter part of the 18th century and was sold in Prague in June 1939. ❧ Dance, Shell Collecting, an Illustrated History, pp. 56-57.

        Disegno della seconda Machina rappresentante una Vendemmia. Incendiata per comando di Sua Eccellenza il Sig. Don Lorenzo Colonna la sera del 19 Giugno 1763.

      1763 - Acquaforte e bulino, 1763. Da un soggetto di Paolo Posi. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini. Il foglio era applicato su tela ed in cornice; dopo un sapiente lavoro di restauro è stato riportato alla condizione originale. Piccoli strappetti ai margini bianchi, minimi difetti, per il resto in buone condizioni. Le macchine del fuoco per la festa della Chinea Chinea in senso letterale, era la mula bianca (o il cavallo ambiatore delle Asturie) che i Re di Spagna presentavano annualmente al papa in forma solenne per il pagamento del censo per il Regno di Napoli. Il cavallo, convenientemente ammaestrato, s'inginocchiava davanti al pontefice e gli offriva la somma di danaro contenuta in un vaso d'argento fissato alla sella. L'offerta era preceduta da una solenne cavalcata della durata di due ore e mezza, lungo un itinerario preciso. Per rendere più solenne la cerimonia, con decreto del 12 maggio 1691 di Carlo II, si obbligavano i "grandi" di Spagna a partecipare al solenne corteo, al quale seguivano per due sere spari di macchine pirotecniche accompagnati da esecuzioni musicali, balli e rinfreschi. La chinea, per la sua regolarità, non era soltanto la festa estiva per eccellenza, ma il migliore biglietto da visita della monarchia spagnola (poi di quella napoletana) nella città eterna, l'arma propagandistica più convincente per guadagnare un consenso universale e l'appoggio politico delle altre potenze. Le celebrazioni erano fastosissime, malgrado i problemi politici della nazione, ed il consueto ritardo nell'invio del danaro per il loro svolgimento. In occasione della festa, palazzo di Spagna e, successivamente, palazzo Colonna e palazzo Farnese, diventavano per due mesi all'anno l'atelier di inventori, pittori, disegnatori e architetti di macchine, nonché il momento di aggregazione di artificieri, fuocaroli, musicisti, fornitori e cuochi. Questi palazzi, inoltre, diventavano, per due giorni all'anno, sede dell'ambasciata straordinaria, luogo dal quale partiva la cavalcata e davanti al quale si innalzavano le « stupefacenti » macchine per i fuochi d'artificio, dove si disponevano le luminarie tenute accese le sere della vigilia e il giorno della festività dei santi Pietro e Paolo. Risale agli inizi del Settecento la consuetudine di allestire, il 28 e 29 giugno, due sontuose macchine in piazza santissimi Apostoli (più raramente in piazza Farnese), di cui conosciamo le caratteristiche grazie alle minuziose incisioni, accompagnate da esaurienti didascalie, che vennero stampate annualmente dal 1723. Monopolizzarono la costruzione e progettazione delle macchine di questo periodo Paolo Posi, architetto camerale della Repubblica di Venezia e di casa Colonna, in collaborazione con il suo allievo, l'architetto camerale Giuseppe Palazzi, e con l'incisore Giuseppe Vasi. Posi, ultimo epigono del barocco, celebrava Ferdinando negli apparati come appassionato archeologo, e come l'entusiasta monarca favorevole al trasporto in piazza di elementi popolari sulla platea d'un sontuoso edificio destinato al divertimento pubblico. Più che mai per tali apparati, ove l'incisore lavorò su disegni altrui, come d'altronde per spettacolari cortei o cavalcate cittadine, il Vasi è prezioso testimone ed interprete del suo tempo. Etching, printed on contemporary laid paper, small tear perfectly repaired, otherwise in good condition The engravings have been laid on canvas and framed; after a long work to repair them, they now look almost perfect. Signs of glue on verso, on recto signs of abrasions and oxidations. Chinea literally means white female mule, the one the Kings of Spain offered every year to the Pope as a solemn payment of the income of the Kingdome of Naples. The horse, duly trained, knelt in front of the Pope and to offer him a silver vase with money inside, that was fastened to its saddle. The offer was preceded by a solemn ride of two and a half hours, a long and precise itinerary. To make it even more solemn, as per Charles II d [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      IJSGEZICHT ROTTERDAM?Oostelijk gezicht der Stad Rotterdam en der Maaze, met IJsvermaak op deeze Rivier, 24 Januari 1763?. Ets vervaardigd door Paulus Constantijn la Fargue, uitgegeven in 1763 door P.G. van Balen, te ?s Gravenhage. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. ca. 45 x 70 cm.Als het ijs sterk genoeg was dan vertoonden zich ook deftige luyden aan het volk. Arrensleden, koetsen en speelwagens kwamen onder het belgerinkel van de dampende paarden over de dikke ijskorst aangegleden en ?gereden. Er wordt hier een historisch moment weergegeven: de latere stadhouder Willem V (1748-1806) rijdt in zijn door zes paarden getrokken koets met uitgebreid gevolg over de bevroren rivier. Het is een met alle details weergegeven drukte een formidabele prent en topografisch interessant door het gezicht op de stad vanaf het ijs.We zien Rotterdam: het Oude Hoofd met Oude Hoofdpoort en achterzijde van de huizen aan het Haringvliet; aan het einde daarvan zijn de Admiraliteitswerf aan het Boerengat en de molens op het Bosland en langs de Oostzeedijk zichtbaar.Paulus Constantijn la Fargue (1732?1782) stamt uit een Nederlands geslacht van kunstenaars, van vijf kinderen was hij de meest begaafde. Paulus Constantijn heeft zowel geschilderd en getekend, als ge?tst. In de eerste plaats waren dat nauwkeurig uitgewerkte stads? en dorpsgezichten, maar daarnaast ook actuele gebeurtenissen, landschappen, portretten, en genretaferelen.Prijs: ?5.500,- (incl. lijst).

        "Cash Accompte of His Majesty's Secret-Service Moneys; By The Hande of William Lowndes Esq. From the XXIIII th April 1695 end to [the] VIII th of March 1701/2 end."

      Folio. 126pp. of manuscript entries + 22pp. alphabetised manuscript index of names, all in the same hand and signed on each page by William Lowndes, Secretary to The Treasury of Great Britain; the holder of the purse-strings of William the Third's Secret Service and it may be interesting to note, the man who coined the phrase "Take care of the pennies and the pounds will take care of themselves." Bound in contemporary vellum, blind ruled to boards, titled in full in manuscript hand to spine and front board. Minor edge-wear and rubbing, some slight warping to the boards, light bumping to the extremities; some occasional spots of soiling to the vellum, original green leather ties absent. Strong, tight and in very good condition indeed. A rather graceful object. Internally clean, Mr Lowndes seems to have had extraordinary penmanship and mistakes and corrections are oddly few, suggesting this to be a fine copy summary of accounts, possibly for Lowndes's private reference. Inscribed to upper edge of front pastedown: "Bought at an Auction of Mr. Edwin's Library / at Saml Baker's 19 Novr 1763 price 5 sh. / Cha. Lowndes" There is a small paper label, bearing the number 192 in ink to the bottom left of the front pastedown, possibly signifying a lot or catalogue number. The manuscript text begins on the verso of the 4th leaf, the previous 3 being blank. Each subsequent page is ruled by hand into 5 columns: Date, Details of payment: who to, and on numerous occasions who from and why, and finally pounds, shillings and pence to record the exact amount. For the 18th century there are some colossal amounts of money being paid out and meticulously recorded by Mr. Lowndes. Essentially this manuscript is nothing less than a record of everyone paid under the auspices of His Majesty's Secret Service, with the full involvement of the Secretary of The Treasury, for whatever purpose or duty, between the years of 1695 and 1702. A directory of those in the pay of the more clandestine arm of The Crown of Great Britain and of the 2000 or so transactions dealing with them. Each entry page bears in elegant and rather elaborate hand "Willm Lowndes Esq. for his Mats. Secret Service is." followed by a small flowing couple of letters; either "Dr" or "Cr" presumably signifying either drawings or credit. The very first entry is dated April 30th 1695: "To Mo. recd. of Mr. Howard in part of an Order for 10,000 Li [the standard abbreviation for pounds, from the Latin 'Libra'; and when written with a florid capital the root of our current pound symbol] dated 26th Instant" It is from May 14th that one specific entry cements the real importance of this manuscript as a historical record of the less publicised aspects of 17th century politics and economics, and indeed the social system as a whole: "14. By. Paid to Dr. Oates of His Maj. Bounty. cl. ....50.0.0." The Dr. Oates who received the sizeable sum of £50 from His majesty is none other than Titus Oates; the 17th century's most prolific anti-Catholic perjurer, liar and charlatan who constructed the Popish Plot almost out of whole cloth and was up to his neck in the chaotic maelstrom of accusation, counter accusation, hysteria, murder, exile and execution which followed. There are 13 separate noted payments of bounty made to Dr. Oates, although these are the payments recorded in the index of names, there are other payments not in the (apparently incomplete) index, including one or two in 1698, at which point Oates was back in favour of the Crown officially, and was permitted to receive a pension; it is worth noting that the majority of other payments were made when Oates was thought to be persona non grata after his unofficial release from prison in 1688. Oates is second only to payments made to the King himself, and closely followed by Henry Killigrew at 12 distinct payments of bounty in the index. Henry Killigrew is most likely the same Henry Killigrew who bears the distinction of being the last (formally appointed) Royal Fool, being made court jester to William III in 1694. The list of notable names goes on, quite apart from Dr. Oates whose Popish Plot exploits clearly garnered enough sympathy within the Protestant government to ensure that he was not left completely out in the cold. The Countess of Orkney is present on a number of occasions; Elizabeth Hamilton, born Elizabeth Villiers was for an extended period of time the King's mistress, and Lady of The Bedchamber to the King's wife and co-monarch Queen Mary II, which must have made things both convenient and rather claustrophobic. She is paid something in the region of £3000 between July and September 1696, soon after her marriage to George Hamilton made her Countess of Orkney, and after her association with the King had ended upon the death of his wife. The Comte de Soissons-Savoye, Louis-Thomas, is paid £1500 in December 1695 "Pursuant to His Maj. Particular Direction and Command and For His Majesty's Service." Thomas was disgraced and ejected from the court of Louis XIV after being divested of his income, some £10,000 per year. William III had a special tendre for his mother, being quoted as saying "No-one has as many fine qualities as The Countess of Soissons." and remarking often on how much he had enjoyed her company during his residency in The Hague. On the same page John Neal is paid £6 for transcribing the reports of "diverse persons concerning the Coyne of this our kingdom." This payment would have been particularly close to the heart of Lowndes, who as Treasurer had been the man to approach the Warden of The Royal Mint, at that time none other than Isaac Newton, for assistance in dealing with the crisis facing the realm caused by the massively debased silver coinage of the time. Under Lowndes and with the assistance of Newton over £685 million in new coinage was struck by the Mint between 1695 and 1700 in an effort to bring the coin of the realm back to a degree of reliability and respectability. Lowndes was a leading figure in the economic revitalisation of Britain, conferring and corresponding not only with Newton, but also with John Locke during the construction of subsidiary Royal Mints at Bristol, Exeter, Chester, Norwich and York to handle the production and re-introduction of un-abased coinage back into the system. An important historical document both for its superficial signifiacnce and for the deeper insights further scholarly research will reveal. A further extended list of entries, with biographical notes on notable recipients and images, is available upon request. Accompanying the main folio ledger are two more manuscript items from William Lowndes's library. Two elaborately bound copies of "Parker's Ephemeris" for 1716 and 1718 respectively. 12mo. Approx 100pp. Full contemporary, heavily decorated black calf gilt (very much in the Scottish "Herringbone" style) with silver roseate bosses to fore-edges (one boss is lacking from the 1716 volume, as is the silver stylus intended to slide between the silver loops attached to the bosses; the stylus for the 1718 volume is present...which in itself is nothing short of miraculous). Minor scuffing and edgewear, extremely handsome. Rear marbled flyleaf from 1716 volume detached, small sheaf of manuscript material laid in at rear. Obviously custom bound to Lowndes' preference with two stiff pieces of treated vellum temporary note pages bound in, and a number of blank pages interleaved before and after the text of the almanac. Lowndes was clearly a compulsive record keeper and these two small volumes are a mass of notes ranging from daily accounts "Farming 2 Ponds...1.10.os" to a list of addresses Lowndes was clearly intending to visit on his next visit to London. The last 20+ pages of the 1718 volume are blank, otherwise the two volumes comprise a substantial number of notes and entries.
