        An Accurate map of Buckingham Shire, divided into its Hundreds

      London: , c 1764. Mounted size: 885 × 705 mm. Copperplate engraving with original hand colour. Slight creasing to the central fold, otherwise in very good condition. A wonderfully precise, detailed and informative large map of Buckinghamshire; from 'The Large English Atlas' ; arguably the finest English atlas produced in the eighteenth century. Emanuel Bowen and Thomas Kitchin were prolific and highly respected cartographers, however, this collaboration was not without its difficulties; ownership of the particular project changed many times, therefore the maps are found to have various imprints. This map carries the imprint of Robert Sayer, John Bowles and Carrington Bowles. In addition to being on a grand scale, the maps carry a wealth of valuable county information concerning the Seats of the Nobility, geographical and political information, and major market towns and cities.

        Employment for the Microscope. In Two Parts. I. An Examination of Salts and Saline Substances....II. An Account of Various Animalcules Never Before Described and of many other Microcscopical Discoveries

      London: R. and J. Dodsley, 1764. Hardcover. Very good. Second edition. 8vo. pp. xii, 442, [10] index, with 18 folding plates showing the the parts of the microscope, the author's discoveries involving the morophology of salt crystals, the characteristics of various microscopic insects, etc. Original calf binding, with professional repair to the joints. Spine in six compartments, black leather label (possibly a later addition). Boards have some surface damage from old chipping and cracking of the leather, which has since been stabilized and sealed. Binding is sound, text and plates quite clean, with the exception of some foxing to the first plate/frontispiece. Simple bookplate of Mr. Alexander Mackenzie on front pastedown. Baker (1698-1774) established his name as a scientific writer with the publication of The Microscope Made Easy (1742). "Written for the novice, it was divided into two parts, the first describing various types of microscope, how best to use each, and how to prepare specimens, while the second part was concerned with the examination of various natural objects, such as the flea, hairs, and pollen….Eleven years after the publication of what proved to be a best-seller, Baker published Employment for the Microscope (1753), [which] repeated the success of its predecessor. Also written for a popular audience, Employment described Baker's own microscopical discoveries…. [His] most important scientific study, for which he received the Copley medal of the Royal Society in 1744, concerned his observation under the microscope of crystal morphology, [which comprises the] first part of Employment for the Microscope" (DNB).

        1764 - 1767 ARCHIVE OF HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT REPORTS DETAILING STATUS AND ACCOUNTING OF HOSPITALS FOR 'LES COMTE DES FLANDRES ET D'ARTOI'

      Artois Flanders Belgium Belge Belgique 1764 - On offer is an archive of French language handwritten manuscript papers penned by Dr. S. Brunes between the years 1764 - 1767. Dr. Brunes provides a study and accounting of several hospitals in the counties of 'les comte des Flandres et d'Artoi". Also included is a more personal letter which acts as an overview of the report proper. This is a very detailed, very well written account in a beautiful hand. In total nine handwritten pages over 12 leaves. Provenance: collection of SIR THOMAS PHILLIPPS (1792-1872). Born in 1792, Sir Thomas Phillipps from childhood was obsessed with the idea of obtaining virtually anything written or printed on paper, including cartloads of documents from wastepaper merchants and the entire inventories of booksellers. "I wish to have one copy of every book in the world," he declared to a friend. He very nearly succeeded. His collection ultimately grew to more than 100,000 books and at least 60,000 manuscripts. As a result of his extravagant purchases, Sir Thomas was permanently on the verge of bankruptcy and was constantly pursued by creditors. So many books arrived at his house that it was impossible to unpack his acquisitions much less keep pace with them. Visiting scholars, driven to distraction, would spend days hunting for an elusive text in the dusty heaps that filled every room. Because Sir Thomas has a morbid dread of fire, most of his collection was housed in coffinlike boxes that could be carted away quickly. Visitors to Middle Hill were struck too, by the presence of numerous logs, a ploy he used to lure beetles away from his books. As Sir Thomas relentlessly pursued his passion, the house itself began to crumble and its floors started to sag under the cast weight of hundreds of tons of paper. His neglect of Middle Hill was partly deliberate, however. Sir Thomas's chief enemy in life, James Halliwell, had married his daughter against his wishes. It appears that Halliwell was, in Sir Thomas' eyes, the worst kind of criminal, a book thief who had stolen valuable works from university libraries and even from his father-in-law. Having no sons, Sir Thomas was unable to prevent Halliwell from inheriting his estate. To ensure that his detested heir would never receive anything of value, Sir Thomas's solution was to allow Middle Hill to fall unto complete disrepair. He even went so far as to chop down and sell for lumber the centuries-old oak trees that lined the majestic mile-long drive to his home. In 1863 Sir Thomas decided to move - in order to accommodate his books. With the aid of 160 men, 103 wagonloads of books and papers drawn by 230 horses, the books were lumbered from Middle Hill top their new estate in nearby Cheltenham. It is said that for years afterwards the countryside was littered with the remains of carts that had collapsed under the sheer weight of the Phillipps collection. Sir Thomas continues to add to his library until his death in 1872. After Sir Thomas's death, his immediate family had no room for his collection. So vast was the library that although individual items and large sections were sold privately or through numerous auction sales, the Phillipps collection is still being sold more than a century after the death of its owner. In the course of its sales, many treasures have come to light. As late as 1964, part of the long-lost and unique medieval manuscript of the Roman poet Ovid's Metamorphoses appeared and was subsequently reunited with its other half at Magdalen College, Oxford. Once destined for destruction as worthless wastepaper, this and many other priceless works were saved by the single-minded obsession of the greatest bibliomaniac of all time. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
