        Observations sur l'architecture

      1765. relié. DeCollection. La Haye, 1765. In-12 (17 x 10 cm) reliure plein veau tacheté du temps, dos lisse à caissons dorés et pièce de titre bordeaux, tranches tachetées, xvj p., 326 p. Manque la coiffe inférieure ; mors supérieur partiellement ouvert, coins usés. Marc-Antoine Laugier (1713-1769) est un théoricien de l'architecture français du XVIIIe siècle. Jésuite, ses prédications à Saint Sulpice plaisent au roi et lui valent sa notoriété. En 1752, Laugier écrit la première édition de l'Essai sur l'architecture, publié anonymement un an plus tard. Il quitte son ordre en 1755 à la suite d'une affaire de sermons ouvertement critiques prononcés devant le roi à Versailles en 1754. Entre 1759 et 1768, il publie une Histoire de la République de Venise. C'est en 1755 que la deuxième édition de l'ouvrage qui le rendra connu est publié: Essai sur l'architecture devient une référence en matière d'architecture religieuse ; ainsi Marc-Antoine Laugier est appelé par l'évêque d'Amiens pour aider à la décoration du chœur de la cathédrale. Il entre alors chez les Bénédictins à Paris, avec l'autorisation du Pape, où il devient homme de lettres. Ce sera le théoricien le plus influent de l'architecture néoclassique, et son ouvrage sur l'architecture sera traduit en anglais et en allemand.

        Commentaries on the Laws of England

      Oxford: Clarendon Press,, 1765. 4 volumes, quarto (260 × 200 mm). Bound in contemporary tree calf, skilfully rebacked to style, titles to spines gilt on red and green morocco labels, spines decorated gilt, new endpapers, gilt rules to boards. 2 engraved tables (1 folding) in Vol. II. Ownership signature to title page of Vol. IV. Corners restored, some light foxing and faint staining to contents. An excellent set, beautifully bound. First edition of the most influential law book ever published. "Blackstone's great work on the laws of England is the extreme example of justification of an existing state of affairs by virtue of its history … Until the Commentaries, the ordinary Englishman had viewed the law as a vast, unintelligible and unfriendly machine... Blackstone's great achievement was to popularize the law and the traditions which had influenced its formation... He takes a delight in describing and defending as the essence of the constitution the often anomalous complexities which had grown into the laws of England over the centuries. But he achieves the astonishing feat of communicating this delight, and this is due to a style which is itself always lucid and graceful" (PMM).

        COMMENTARIES ON THE LAWS OF ENGLAND

      Oxford: Printed at the Clarendon Press, 1765-1769.. Four volumes: [4],iii,[4],473; [8],520,xix; [8],455,[1],xxvii; [8],436,vii,[40]pp. plus the "Table of Consanguinity" and "Table of Descents" (folding) bound into second volume. Without the eight-page "Supplement to the First Edition," which was issued later and is generally absent in earlier copies. Quarto. Contemporary calf, neatly rebacked, preserving original gilt morocco spine labels. Moderate wear to boards. Two bookplates on each front pastedown. Contemporary ink inscription on verso of flyleaf in first volume, two leaves bound upside down in second volume, light occasional foxing, a few marginal notes in a contemporary hand. Very good. A handsome set of the first edition of this cornerstone work on English laws, which had an undeniable influence on the course of jurisprudence in the United States. "Blackstone's great work on the laws of England is the extreme example of justification of an existing state of affairs by virtue of its history....Until the COMMENTARIES, the ordinary Englishman had viewed the law as a vast, unintelligible and unfriendly machine; nothing but trouble, even danger, was to be expected from contact with it. Blackstone's great achievement was to popularize the law and the traditions which had influenced its formation....If the English constitution survived the troubles of the next century, it was because the law had gained a new popular respect, and this was due in part to the enormous success of Blackstone's work" - PMM. Blackstone's work was immediately influential and successful - it was reprinted a dozen times in England over the ensuing two decades, and translated into French, German, Italian, and Russian. Robert Bell produced the first American edition in Philadelphia in 1771-1772. With the bookplate of the Earls Waldegrave, English statesmen and soldiers. This was probably acquired by either the 3rd or 4th Earl. PRINTING AND THE MIND OF MAN 212. ROTHSCHILD 407. GROLIER CLUB, ENGLISH BOOKS 52.

        THE RIGHTS OF THE BRITISH COLONIES ASSERTED AND PROVED

      Boston, Printed; London, Reprinted. [1765].. 120pp. Later blue paper wrappers. Very minor foxing and toning. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth folder. First British edition, after the original Boston edition of 1764, of the first major political statement from the American colonies after the end of the French and Indian War, and the opening of the political dispute which ended with American Independence. "The writer, a native of Boston, was one of the first and most influential of the controversialists on the popular side. This piece was read in ms. to the Massachusetts House of Representatives, and was published with their knowledge though not by their orders. The Instructions of May, 1764, in the Appendix, were drawn by Samuel Adams....'A very zealous defence of the colonies, tending to prove that...no part of his Majesty's dominions can constitutionally be taxed without their own consent' - MONTHLY REVIEW" - Sabin. "...The RIGHTS is a closely reasoned statement of the constitutional position of the colonies in the single commonwealth that Otis believed the British Empire to be. In it were developed the principles...to which Otis remained faithful while he kept his reason" - DAB. The pamphlet was written in protest against the new Sugar Revenue Act of 1764, the first of the onerous taxes proposed for the American colonies. Otis was the political leader of Massachusetts Bay for much of the 1760s, until his instability of mind overwhelmed him in 1769. "Marks an important stage in the growth of a revolutionary frame of mind and in the history of American constitutionalism" - Bailyn. AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE 4b. AMERICAN CONTROVERSY 64-15b. SABIN 57866. BAILYN, PAMPHLETS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION 7. DAB XIV, pp.101-5. ESTC T98780. HOWES O147.

        Vida admirable, y penitente de la v. m. sor Sebastiana Josepha de la SS. Trinidad, religiosa de coro, y velo negro en la religiosissimo Convento de señoras religiosas clarisas de san Juan de la penitencia de esta ciudad de Mexico

      Mexico: Imprenta de la Bibliotheca Mexicana 4to (20 cm; 8"). [4] ff., 396 pp., [2] ff., plt.. 1765 Sole edition of this Descalced Franciscan's extensive biography of Sebastiana Josepha de la Santíssima Trinidad (1709–57, née Sebastiana Josefa de Maya), a Poor Clare and native of Mexico. Valdés details her life before entering religious life, her motives for taking the habit, and her life, piety, devotions, achievements, and charities as a nun. He includes quotations from her writings and interestingly details her confessors, who included Father Margil. Her family commissioned the work and paid publication costs. The work is illustrated with => a fine full-page engraving by Jose Morales of the biographee kneeling in devotion before an elegant shrine to the Christ Child in her book-graced cell. A woodcut of the Trinity appears at the top of the dedication page, and there are a few nice initials and head- and tailpieces. Provenance: Gift/ownership inscription in a contemporary hand on front free endpaper: "Para el Religiosissimo Convento de Corpus Chirsti de Mex[i]co que se da en nombre de los Bienechores de esta obra." Evidence of Readership: This is not a volume that was generally annotated; but on p. 104 is evidence that it was => read with careful attention and by someone who was either an eye-witness to events recounted or someone otherwise close to them. This marginal note reads, in our translation: "The author is wrong to say the three 'espanolas' entered on the same afternoon, [and] as he says [elsewhere] there were four and each entered by herself, alone. Contemporary limp vellum with remnants of ties; wormtracks on a number of leaves, often entirely marginal or otherwise missing print but also occasionally costing letters or even a word or two. A nice book, with an old "etiqueta" affirming that it "fue desinfectado para su venta" — not saying from or against what but adding, obviously fruitlessly, that that notice should be destroyed by the buyer!

        The School of Fencing,

      London: Printed for S. Hooper,, 1765. with a General Explanation of the Principal Attitudes and Positions Peculiar to the Art. Landscape folio (277 × 461 mm). Contemporary half calf, rebacked with original spine laid down, green morocco label, marbled sides. Parallel English?-French text. 47 engraved plates after illustrations by James Gwynn, all carefully hand-coloured. Board edges and corners worn, inner hinges reinforced with leather, a few minor marks, including small, light paint spills to a handful of plates, one plate (29) chipped at foot, text not affected, overall a very good copy. First edition in English, the second overall, of one of the most important books on fencing in English, by fencing-master Domenico Angelo (1716-1802), whose School of Arms was the first true fencing academy on British soil. Angelo's L'École d'armes avec l'explication générale des principales attitudes et positions concernant l'escrime was first published with French text only in 1763, by the Dodsleys. It was the most important book to appear on the subject in England since the treatise of Vincentio Saviolo; nor was its influence confined to England, Diderot incorporating the whole work into the Encyclopédie. The book is dedicated to Princes William Henry and Henry Frederic (Domenico was fencing instructor to the royal family), the large expense covered by subscriptions from 236 of Angelo's wealthy clientele who attended his School of Arms in Carlisle House, Soho. It is thought that Angelo was assisted in writing the text by the famous French-English diplomat, spy, transvestite and fencing-master, the Chevalier d'Eon (1728-1810), who shared Angelo's London house for several years. Both Angelo and d'Eon had received their fencing training in Paris from the famous Monsieur Teillagory. The book was reprinted in smaller format with English text only in 1787, and again in 1799, but this larger format first English?-French edition is generally preferred.

        Abrege de la Police accompagne de Reflexions sur l Accroissement des Villes

      Chez I. Estienne et Fils Hambourg 1765. 2 Bde. in 1 neuerer priv. Kartonband mit rotem Lederrückenschild u. Rundumgolgschnitt Papier leicht gebräunt, sonst sehr gut erhalten, beinahe neuwertig 16 Bl., 224, 192 Seiten 20,5 x 13,5 Willebrand entstammte einer in Rostock ansässigen mecklenburgischen Kaufmannsfamilie. Er studierte Rechtswissenschaften an der Universität Halle und wurde 1742 zum Dr. jur. promoviert. Nach ausgedehnten Reisen durch Europa wurde er Advokat in Lübeck und heiratete dort. In Lübeck begann er, sich mit der Geschichte der Hanse zu befassen und kann daher als einer der ganz frühen Hansehistoriker angesehen werden. Aufgrund seiner zu dem dänischen Staatsminister Johann Hartwig Ernst von Bernstorff gesuchten Beziehung wurde er 1755 vom Dänischen König zum Justizrat und Mitglied des Pinnebergischen und Altonaer Oberappellationsgericht sowie des Oberkonsistoriums in Glückstadt ernannt. Dies verpflichtete ihn Wohnsitz in Altona zu nehmen. Als Polizeidirektor von Altona (1757-1767) erbat er sich seinen Abschied aufgrund von Reibungen mit Rat und Bürgerschaft der Stadt. Er wurde nunmehr hauptberuflich Schriftsteller im benachbarten Hamburg. 1775/76 erschien sein Hauptwerk Grundriß einer schönen Stadt, in der er Grundsätze einer zweckmäßigen Stadtanlage und Stadtverwaltung entwickelte. Von den übrigen Arbeiten Willebrand's ist zunächst der im J. 1765 verfaßte "Abrege de la Police" zu nennen, ein Handbuch der Polizeiwissenschaft, welches ihm unter anderen Beifallsbezeugungen auch die Anerkennung der Kaiserin Katharina von Rußland eintrug 1 Kupferstich auf Titelblatt.

        Carte des variations de la Boussole et des vents généraux que l'on trouve dans les mers les plus frequentées

      Paris: Dépôt Génerale de la Marine, 1765. Large engraved chart measuring 620 x 930 mm., very good condition. Halley's great dream pursued by Bellin. Mid eighteenth century world map showing magnetic variation through the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.This map represents decades of work by several enlightenment luminaries. The scientific study of magnetic variation was initiated by Edmund Halley and William Dampier, who respectively commanded the first two English scientific voyages and took magnetic bearings at sea. In the early eighteenth century Halley published a world map of compass variations incorporating data from many sources and the map was re-published several times. At this time Halley introduced an important innovation into mapmaking with 'isogonic lines' representing equal magnetic values.However, as magnetic variation remains in constant flux Halley's chart inevitably became obsolete. In 1744 the Royal Society commissioned two of its members, William Mountain and James Dodson, to collate and compile some 50,000 individual magnetical observations gleaned from the logbooks of Royal Navy and East India Company officers. The project was so complex that both men ultimately conceded they did not believe variation came 'under the direction of any one general law'.This French map was prepared by Jacques-Nicolas Bellin and published by the Ministry of the Marine. As one of the pre-eminent geographers of pre-Revolutionary France, Bellin brings Halley's original project up to date to the year 1765. Bellin is remembered for the quality of his work and prodigious output (including the impressive atlases Le Neptune Français of 1735 and the Hydrographie Français of 1756-1765). Among other achievements, Bellin contributed to Diderot's Encyclopédie and was elected a member of the Royal Society in London.

        LA PHILOSOPHIE DE L'HISTOIRE

      Aux dépens de L'auteur 1765 - (12), 380 pp. Signatures *6 A-Y8 Z-Aa6 Bb2. Page 332 misnumbered 232. See pics for the versos of *1-4. Recent brown fullcalf [by Natasha Herman, Redbone Bindery, Amsterdam] in period style, marbled endpapers. Uncut [210*125 mm.]. Paper uneven in most quires and crisp. Some minor browning. No underlinings, notes etc., so a clean copy. 1 copy in KVK [Oldenburg] and NCC [Groningen], 4 in COPAC (Oxford, NLSc, Lambeth Palace and Sheffield) and 1 in BNF (#31604498), mentioning Marc Michel Rey, Amsterdam as the publisher and the number of preliminary pages as VIII. The librarian of Oxford mentions the misnumbering of p. 332, that his publisher information is quoted from BNF, and that the number of introductory pages of his copy is 12 (as in his description, that of Besterman and our copy). Status 2005, recently also the possessions at Institut et Musée Voltaire in Genève and BU Droit Lettres in Caen have been digitalized. The unevenness of the paper (possibly due to the consistent practice of wetting the paper more than usual before and drying it quite quickly after printing) is also seen in 1764 copies of Argenson, Considerations sur le gouvernement (our copy and 2 copies in RUL), of which Rey is stated as publisher on title. Theodore Besterman (Some eighteenth-century Voltaire editions unknown to Bengesco, 3th edition, 1968, p. 71) suggests that this Genève(=Amsterdam) edition may have been the first of all seven 1765-editions found by him and Bengesco. Besterman [1968] 158. Very rare in this edition. [Attributes: First Edition]

        S. BERNARDO EN NUEVA VIZCAYA...[docket title]

      [Nuevo Viscaya. 1765].. Original hand-drawn map, 13 x 8 1/2 inches. Edges restored with minor loss to two corners, two small worm holes, remnants of old backing on verso. Manuscript key written in thin margins surrounding image. Colors (brown ink, green, red, and blue washes) remain bright and clean. Very good. Archival matting, and protected with Mylar sheet. A delightful handcolored view of the village of San Bernardo in Nueva Viscaya, now part of Chihuahua and Durango, the first region of northern Mexico to be explored and settled by the Spanish. The image shows what appears to be the entire town, with a large church at the center, another towards the lower right, and scores of additional buildings with their land and fenced boundaries. All are drawn in uniform style and each is labeled with a number, some of which correspond to the text written in the margin. Two rivers border the settlement, the longer of which cuts through the lower left corner, while the other passes to the upper right. During the 17th and 18th centuries Nueva Viscaya was an essential staging area for missions and expeditions into New Mexico, and as such was a key Spanish colonial outpost. While many surviving similar views were executed by colonial officials with their trademark precision, the present plan was likely based on their example, but composed in a more provincial style. A lovely view of the northern reaches of Spanish colonial power in Mexico.

Monnet, the editor of this volume, was a French impresario and writer. "According to his memoirs (Supplément au roman comique, 1772) he led a colourful but dissolute life for some years, was imprisoned briefly in 1741 for publishing scurrilous literature (Les annales amusantes), and thereafter embarked on a series of theatrical enterprises... [He] has been credited with a number of librettos but only LÂ’inconséquente, ou Le fat dupé (1787) can be attributed to him with certainty. His edition of the Anthologie françoise (1765) is of historical value to the study of French folklore." Elisabeth Cook in Grove online

        Carte des variations de la Boussole et des vents généraux que l'on trouve dans les mers les plus frequentées

      Dépôt Génerale de la Marine, Paris 1765 - Large engraved chart measuring 620 x 930 mm., very good condition. Halley's great dream pursued by Bellin. Mid eighteenth century world map showing magnetic variation through the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.This map represents decades of work by several enlightenment luminaries. The scientific study of magnetic variation was initiated by Edmund Halley and William Dampier, who respectively commanded the first two English scientific voyages and took magnetic bearings at sea. In the early eighteenth century Halley published a world map of compass variations incorporating data from many sources and the map was re-published several times. At this time Halley introduced an important innovation into mapmaking with 'isogonic lines' representing equal magnetic values.However, as magnetic variation remains in constant flux Halley's chart inevitably became obsolete. In 1744 the Royal Society commissioned two of its members, William Mountain and James Dodson, to collate and compile some 50,000 individual magnetical observations gleaned from the logbooks of Royal Navy and East India Company officers. The project was so complex that both men ultimately conceded they did not believe variation came 'under the direction of any one general law'.This French map was prepared by Jacques-Nicolas Bellin and published by the Ministry of the Marine. As one of the pre-eminent geographers of pre-Revolutionary France, Bellin brings Halley's original project up to date to the year 1765. Bellin is remembered for the quality of his work and prodigious output (including the impressive atlases Le Neptune Français of 1735 and the Hydrographie Français of 1756-1765). Among other achievements, Bellin contributed to Diderot's Encyclopédie and was elected a member of the Royal Society in London.

        Coup d'oeil général sur la France, par M. Brion... pour servir d'introduction au tableau analytique et géographique de ce Royaume

      Paris: Grangé, Guillyn, Desnos, 1765. Quarto, numerous engraved maps and charts (see below); some preliminary foxing, an attractive copy in contemporary French mottled calf, spine gilt with crimson morocco label. An innovative eighteenth century atlas founded upon enlightenment principles, combining geographical and social information using novel methods.The atlas is the work of two eminent cartographers of the mid-eighteenth century, Royal geographer Louis Brion de la Tour and Parisian publisher Louis Charles Desnos. A wide range of statistical information - relating to the population, finances, and government of France - is here presented in inter-related charts and maps. The product is an atlas that expands beyond regular geography, so fulfilling the enlightenment ideal of joining diverse streams of knowledge into a lucid whole.The atlas was first published in 1763. This is an example of the significantly expanded later edition of 1766, containing a good number of maps not present in the first edition. New material includes the final section of road maps, tabulated for real-time use by travelers .In this revised edition the atlas is comprised of several discrete parts, each with engraved title pages. A full contents listing as follows:Introductory letterpress: title-page reading 'Coup d'oeil général sur la France', [16][4]pp.'Tableau analytique de la France...' engraved title, 33 plates (one large folding, remainder double-page).'Le petit Neptune François' engraved title, 3 double page plates of coastal districts, followed by large folding map captioned "La France divisée en ses LVIII provinces"'L'indicateur fidéle ou Guide de Voyageurs' engraved title, double-page ornamental dedication to Cassini de Thury, followed by 19 maps and charts; followed by letterpress prospectus and both alphabetic place names supplements (paginated 8,10pp.).

        1765 RARE Timberlake ‘A DRAUGHT OF THE CHEROKEE COUNTRY’ Early Tennessee Map FRAMED [Unusually Strong Impression]

      London: Henry Timberlake, 1765. 1st Edition. Other Other. Very Good. (Maps) TIMBERLAKE, Henry. A DRAUGHT OF THE CHEROKEE COUNTRY on the West Side of the Twenty Four Mountains, Commonly Called 'Over the Hills'; Taken by Henry Timberlake, when he was in that Country in March 1762. Likewise the Names of the Principal or Head men of each Town, and what Number of Fighting Men they send to War. London: Henry Timberlake, 1765. Published in ‘The Memoirs of Lieut. Henry Timberlake, (Who accompanied the Three Cherokee Indians to England in the Year 1762)’. This original map measures 15.25 x 9.25 in.; framed piece measures 26 x 20 in. Hand-colored. An unusually strong impression on unfolded, heavy laid-paper. Faintly foxed. Very Good condition. Map indicates all the Cherokee villages on the lower Little Tennessee River and provides important demographic information about village sizes, populations, and leaders. This map was used by archaeologists in the 1970s during the Tellico Archaeological Project and has been hailed as remarkably accurate. Though one of the best contemporary accounts of the 18th-century Cherokee, Timberlake’s ‘Memoirs’ was not a great success in its time, making this a VERY SCARCE piece. Henry Timberlake (1730-1765) was born in Hanover County Virginia. He joined the Virginia Militia at the outset of the French & Indian War in 1756. He was later commissioned as an Ensign. After an undistinguished role in the action around Fort Duquesne and Pittsburg, he participated in the campaign against the Cherokee in 1761, where he gained a knowledge of the Overhill country of Tennessee at Fort Robinson and accompanied two other soldiers on a trip to the Cherokee Country, down the Holston River to the French Broad River and the Little Tennessee River. The trip was intended as a show of good faith in connection with a peace treaty and resulted in his travelling extensively among the Cherokee, before returning to Virginia with several Indian Chiefs.

        Enchiridion canonico-morale de confessario ad inhonesta, & turpia solicitante: nec non de decretis, & constitutionibus pontificiis ad hoc nefarium crimen exterminandum emanantis

      Mexico: ex typographia editioni Bibliothecae Mexicanae destinata 4to (20 cm; 7.75"). [14] ff., 217 pp.. 1765 A theological and legal treatise on confessors and confession and the sacrament of penance with the emphasis on abuse of the confessional by priests. Telling a priest one's moral and legal transgressions empowers the weak or corrupt priest to then blackmail the parishioner for money or sex or other "favors." Father Vilaplana (1712?-63), a native of Benimarfull, Valencia, Spain, was a Franciscan, a university lecturer in theology, and an "examiner" for the Inquisition. His handbook gives examples of abuses, lays out the pertinent canon laws and papal edicts, and has a section of questions to be asked of accused priests during court proceedings. The work also discusses punishment and other disciplines that the crimes demand. Since abuse of the confessional fell under the authority of the Inquisition, this work is de facto a manual for Inquisitors. This is the "Editio secunda locupletior in paucis." The Bibliotheca Mexicana was the private press of the great bibliographer, writer, and secular cleric Juan Jose de Eguiara y Eguren. Contemporary limp vellum, rodent-gnawed along several edges with a small loss of vellum. Front endpapers with loss to silverfish. Text unwormed and clean.

      London: printed for John Bowles; Robert Sayer, and Carington Bowles, 1765. WITHOUT TITLE-PAGE and text but with all plates. Sixty folio crayon copperplates printed in orange. Folio. Modern cloth spine and tips, marbled boards. Fine. "Smith is generally credited with popularizing crayon manner engraving in England, mainly because he executed a series of plates in this style from designs by Watteau, Boucher, Edmé Bouchardon, and others-including 12 Heads Selected from Monsr. Le Brun's 'Passions of the Soul', printed for Robert Sayer-which were all published together on sixty folio copperplates by John and Carrington Bowles and Sayer as The School of Art, or, Most Compleat Drawing-Book Extant (1765). There had been no market for the technique when it was first used by Pond, but by the 1760s the English had developed a taste for French drawings. The preface to Smith's drawing book indicates that it appeared not only to fill that market, but also, by placing less emphasis on proportion and perspective and containing more examples of landscapes, rococo cartouches, and flower drawings, to respond to the growing demand for drawing books which catered to the new, often female, type of amateur whose numbers were beginning to increase around this time."

        Ionnis Wallisii grammatica linguae Anglicanae Edition sexta

      London: G. Bowyer & A. Millar, 1765. 8vo, xxxv, 281, [2]. With engraved portrait and HollisÕs catalogue of the literature of liberty. Smoke print of binderÕs emblem Liberty on final leaf. Red morocco with gilt figure of Britannia on upper cover, an owl on the lower cover, vertical gilt lettering and caduceus on backstrip. Bottom joint cracked, top joint starting. Marbled endpapers and edges with bookplates of two former owners on front pastedown and the signature ?'E. Gordon Duff?" on the verso of the flyleaf. Inscription on second blank leaf reads: ?'This book was printed at the expense of Mr Holles, who sent some copies to me abroad in the year 1766 for the use of learned foreigners. E. [signature cut out] See BowyerÕs Anecdotes.?" The sixth edition of WallisÕs grammar intended for foreign learners was one of several works edited and distributed by Thomas Hollis for ?'the protection and advancement of English liberty?" (DNB). The smoke print records one of the emblematic tools cut by Thomas Pingo for HollisÕs bindings, the second set used after the first was destroyed by fire in 1764. Rothschild 2731. ?'A most correct and elegant edition with a portrait of Wallis by Cipriani?"(Lowndes 2817). The signature is likely to be that of misanthropic English bibliographer, Edward Gordon Duff (1863-1924), whose ?'scientific?" approach to bibliography led to scathing attacks on his colleagues, and to new standards of accuracy in his profession (DNB). The MS note refers to Vol. 9 of BowyerÕs Literary Anecdotes (1812) which observes ?'To this Volume is prefixed a Portrait of Dr. Wallis, finely copied by Basire from that drawn by Cipriani, for Mr. HollisÕs Edition of the DoctorÕs English Grammar.?"
