        An Essay on the History of Civil Society.

      Edinburgh: for A. Millar & T. Cadell, London; and A. Kincaid & J. Bell, Edinburgh,, 1767. Quarto (264 x 207 mm). Contemporary Scottish sprinkled calf, spine decorated gilt in compartments with a thistle device, red morocco label, double gilt rules to boards, red sprinkled edges. Engraved bookplate of Plummer of Middlestead and shelf label from Sunderland Hall to front pastedown. Joints and spine ends professionally restored, inner hinges strengthened with archival tissue; pale damp mark to lower corners of first few leaves, first and final few leaves tanned from the leather turn ins; occasional light spotting; withal a very fine copy, with a good Scottish provenance. First edition of Ferguson's masterpiece, a key text of the Scottish Enlightenment. "The Essay touched a chord in its British readers because it offered a detailed, colourful, non-deterministic historical account of the way nations advance morally and materially towards the state of commerce, refinement, and liberty associated with eighteenth-century Britain" (ODNB). Ferguson made a distinctly modern economic analysis of morality, arguing that the danger was not luxury, but political laziness, or a reluctance to fulfil the duties of citizenship. Identifiably Scottish without being overtly so, Ferguson followed Montesquieu by acknowledging a great variety of factors, climatic and geographic, as well as cultural and moral, affecting the rise and fortunes of polities in Europe and beyond. "Of special significance was the Essay's impact on the early attempts at creating the disciplines of social sciences by Ferguson's contemporaries at the University of Göttingen. They were impressed by his comparative attitude to societies ancient and modern, and by his attack on Rousseau's concept of the state of nature. Ferguson's approach inspired a comparative ethnography that went beyond the traditional dichotomy between 'primitive' and 'civilized', and tried to map the varieties of social mores without grading them on a strict ladder of historical progress" (ibid.). "Ferguson is today remembered for his Essay … he was what we would now call an intellectual historian, tracing the gradual rise of the human mind from barbarism to political and social refinement … Debates between Reid, Dugald Stewart, Hume, Adam Smith, Lord Kames and Ferguson himself reveal Scottish philosophy in general to be important sociologically … His discussions of politics, economics, history, aesthetics, literature and ethnology were the synthesis of the thought of his time" (Encyclopedia of Philosophy III, p. 187). Provenance: From the library of Scottish advocate and antiquary Andrew Plummer of Middlestead (1748-1799), who preceded Walter Scott as Sheriff of Selkirkshire, with his engraved armorial bookplate to front pastedown.

        Manoeuvres for a Battalion of Infantry, Upon Fixed Principles.

      London: Printed for J. Millan,, 1767. With thirty-two copper plates. By a German officer. Price five shillings, bound with his former Manoeuvres and the essay on small detachments, 10s. 6d. 12s. 6d. the medium, and 15s. the Royal. Octavo in fours (160 x 100 mm). Recent mottled brown calf-backed blue paper boards, titles to red morocco label to spine. With 20 hand-coloured folding plates. Boards very slightly bowed, top edge dust toned, 2 stubs visible at inner margin between pp. 8-9 due to printing error, with no effect on the collation; an excellent copy. Second edition, first published in 1766 with 17 plates. A richly illustrated drill book which references a number of contemporary battles and Generals, most often the practical use of the manoeuvres mentioned in the Seven Years' War. "This small drillbook laid out a series of manoeuvres for the battalion, most of which were described in the 1764 regulations, but which were here performed in a fashion more sophisticated than that laid down in the regulations. Although only a well-trained British battalion could have performed them, they were an alternate and superior system by which the army's new manoeuvres could be carried out... where the 1764 Regulations relied on filing for most movements, those of the 'German Officer' were better tactically because they preserved a front by marching the line obliquely; and they were more speedily performed than was possible by filing." The publisher, John Millan, integrates with the letterpress advertisements for his other military titles, including "New Prussian field regulations for foot" and "Captain Miller's Art of Self-Defence", on the versos of the title and dedication pages.

        Sperimenti idraulici principalmente diretti a confermare la teoria, e facilitare la pratica del misurare le acque correnti. Volume Secondo, in cui, oltre a nuove sperienze, si contengono le risposte dell'autore ad alcuni celebri matematici d'Italia, e due esercitazioni analitiche...

      nella Reale Stamperia. 2 voll. in un tomo in-4°, pp. 24),206,(2); (8),234,(6), con 2 vignette in rame ai frontespizi, 2 testate in rame, un bel ritratto di Carlo Emanuele III in antiporta rip., 11 tavv. in rame ripiegate f.t. di Stagnon, e 12 tabelle numeriche, legatura in mezza pelle, titolo in oro su tassello al dorso, parte delle cerniere superiori staccate, abrasioni alla carta dei piatti dovute all'umidità, interno fresco. Il volume è impregnato da un odore di muffa anche se privo di gore o muffe all'interno, dovuto al luogo in cui probabilmente fu conservato. Nel 1763 il M. fu incaricato da Carlo Emanuele III della direzione delle ricerche e degli esperimenti nello Stabilimento per le sperienze idrauliche, fatto appositamente costruire dal Savoia presso la cascina della Parella, lungo la strada, a ovest di Torino, che partendo da porta Susa conduceva verso Collegno, nelle vicinanze della cappella di S. Rocco. La struttura, che utilizzava le acque del canale della Cossola, a partire dal fiume Dora superiore, comprendeva la cosiddetta «Torre o Castello d'acque», soprannominata anche il «Castello incantato della scienza». Questa torre fu iniziata per ordine del re il 23 giugno 1763 e proseguita, con molte altre strutture e congegni, fino al 1769. Si trattava non solo di un laboratorio di ricerca per effettuare esperimenti sulle acque, ma anche di un «ente normatore» nell'utilizzo delle risorse idriche del territorio. Il M. descrisse in dettaglio le costruzioni, gli strumenti, le osservazioni e i risultati ottenuti dalle ricerche condotte sul campo nell'opera in due volumi Sperimenti idraulici principalmente diretti a confermare la teorica, e facilitare la pratica del misurare le acque correnti - la sua unica opera ad essere pubblicata - edita a Torino per i tipi della Stamperia reale nel 1767 (il primo) e nel 1771 (il secondo). Nel primo tomo, dedicato a Carlo Emanuele III, il M. forniva un'accurata descrizione del progetto e della realizzazione della torre idraulica e dei numerosi apparecchi ideati e fatti costruire alla Parella per analizzare e misurare il comportamento dell'acqua: quando percorre vari tipi di canali, quando esce da fori posti a diverse altezze, quando le aperture di uscita hanno differenti sezioni e forme (quadrata, circolare, con l'aggiunta di tubi cilindrici, conici e di imbuti cicloidali). Sono inoltre esaminati alcuni strumenti per misurare la velocità dell'acqua, come il galleggiante, la ruota, il tubo di Pitot, il regolatore di Guglielmini, il sifone e il quadrante, consigliato dai «migliori scrittori d'idrometria» (p. 157), come B. Castelli, D. Guglielmini, J. Hermann, G. Grandi e B. Zendrini. Il M. ne presentava una descrizione dettagliata del funzionamento e si soffermava sui vantaggi e sui limiti, oltre che sugli accorgimenti per migliorare i risultati. Nel secondo tomo il M. proseguiva la descrizione di nuovi esperimenti idraulici condotti dal 1766 al 1770 con le relative conclusioni. Avendo ricevuto da vari studiosi italiani richieste di chiarimenti sul primo volume, l'autore inseriva nella trattazione le sue risposte ai quesiti e dubbi espressi dal p. A. Lecchi nella sua Idrostatica (1765) e da altri sperimentatori come R.G. Boscovich, E. Zanotti e T. Bonati. Poggendorff, II/146. Riccardi, I/157

        Unbetitelt (Affenschule). Signierte Originalmalerei (Aquarell und Gouache). Minutiöse Kopie der Affenschule nach A. Teniers. Von einem Frankfurter Emaillemaler.

      Frankfurt a. M., 1767. - Blattformat ca. 19,5 x 25,5 cm. Im Bild von Boy datiert und signiert (1767, Carl Gottfried Boy, delin.). An den beiden oberen Ecken auf Trägerkarton gefalzt, hinter Passepartout. In tadelloser Erhaltung. Amüsante und fein gezeichnete Szenerie in einer Affenschule, auf ein nur unwesentlich größeres Gemälde Abraham Teniers zurückgehend: Die Affenschüler sitzen studierend, lesend und schreibend an langen Bänken, am linken Rand der Lehrer mit Brille und Zuchtstock, einem vor ihm stehenden Affenschüler etwas erklärend. Über ihm – die einzige wesentliche Änderung, die sich Boy im Vergleich zur Vorlage erlaubt hat – ein Eselsbild, das ungehorsamen und faulen Schülern, wenn sie ohnehin zur Strafe in der Ecke stehen mußten, um den Hals gehängt wurde. Auf einer Stange im Hintergrund überblickt eine Eule die Szenerie. – Carl Gottfried Boy war ein Neffe des bekannten königlich-englischen Hofmalers in Hannover, Gottfried Boy (1701-1755), und war als Goldschmied und Emaillemaler in Frankfurt tätig. Die Zeichnung ist bis auf die erwähnte Abänderung eine derart präzise Kopie, daß man davon ausgehen muß, daß Boy Zugang zum Original Teniers gehabt haben muß. Das Orginalgemälde Teniers wurde vor einigen Jahren für einen hohen fünfstelligen Betrag versteigert. – Siehe auch die Abbildung auf der Titelseite dieses Kataloges. 1001 g

Dit zal een geestig, boertig stuk heten; doch het is juist die grove geestigheid en plompe boert, waarmede het gemeene volk zich vermaakt. Het schijnt ook dat buma dit stuk niet tot de uitgave bestemd had; men heeft het na zijn' dood, die den 28 Julij 1756 voorviel, in 1767 quasi te Knollendam gedrukt, en daarmede de nagedachtenis van dezen anders niet onverdienstelijken schilder en dichter weinig eer aangedaan."

        Title in Arabic:] Kitab 'Aja'ib al-maqdur fi-akhbar Taymur. Ahmedis Arabsiadae. Vitae et Rerum Gestarum Timuri, qui vulgo Tamerlanes Dicitur, Historia. Latine vertit, et adnotationes adjecit Samuel Henricus Manger.

      Leeuwarden: at the shop of H. A. de Chalmot, 1767–72 - 2 volumes in 3, quarto (200 × 150 mm). Contemporary cat's-paw calf, double rules to boards in blind, spines richly gilt in compartments separated by raised bands, red and green morocco labels to second and third respectively, all edges red, marbled endpapers, green satin bookmark to each volume. Raised bands very slightly rubbed, bookplates removed from front pastedowns, pages of vol. I quire G transposed (printing-shop accident); paper flaws not affecting text at vol. I 2S3-4, vol. II 2H3 and 4C3; marginal soiling to vol. II pp. 429-32. An excellent copy, internally crisp and clean, well-preserved in a handsome contemporary binding with the gilt tooling and red edges strikingly bright. Arabic and Latin parallel text. Engraved head- and tailpieces throughout. First edition thus of the most importance source for the life of the great conqueror Timur (1336-1405). Timur was born in Kesh, modern-day Uzbekistan, into the Turco-Mongol Barlas tribal confederation, and built an empire stretching from Anatolia in the west to Kashgar in the east. This edition, prepared by Dutch orientalist and theologian Samuel Hendrik Manger (1735-1791), comprises an annotated and improved edition of the Arabic text (first published in 1636), alongside the first edition in Latin. Manger's parallel text has never been superseded and in the author's own time served as the standard version for scholars across Europe, in particular the majority who did not know Arabic, with Edward Gibbon using it for the chapter on Timur in the Decline. Manger consulted various manuscripts to improve on the 1636 edition, and his text is supplemented with glosses from a range of other historical accounts. The author Ibn 'Arabshah (1392-1450) was deported to Samarkand as a young boy when Timur conquered his home city of Damascus around 1400. In Samarkand he was trained as a court secretary, and studied under the great scholars of Central Asia, learning Persian, Turkish and Mongol. Travelling through the Crimea he stopped at Adrianople, where he entered the service of Ottoman sultan Mehmed. He returned eventually to Damascus, completing his account in 1435. "After a brief preface the work explains the significance of Timur's name and then traces his life and career step by step. The rulers whose kingdoms Timur annexed are discussed in detail and their territories described. The plundering, devastation, and ferocious cruelty which Timur unleashed wherever he met with any resistance are scrupulously depicted. The exiling to Samarkand of the skilled craftsmen, scholars, artists, and so on, whom he encountered on his campaigns is also described Ibn 'Arabshah examines Timur's character, abilities, and conduct towards friend and foe, and offers a relatively objective assessment. Finally he gives a valuable account of the intellectual world of Samarkand with a list of famous scholars, lawyers, shaykhs, interpreters of the Koran, doctors, and artists whom he had seen or of whom he had heard" (Encyclopaedia Iranica). Considered "one of the highlights of late-Classical Arabic literature" (Miller, p. 257), Ibn 'Arabshah's account is also of great historical importance for its frank description of elements of Timur's reign otherwise known only through court hagiographies: "Timur is represented as a cruel and profligate tyrant, but towards the end his great qualities are appreciated. The book contains valuable descriptions of [Timur's court at] Samarkand and its learned world" (Encyclopaedia of Islam). It has also been demonstrated that Christopher Marlowe, in writing Tamburlaine, "selected many incidents and details from his probable Western sources that most likely have their bases in Ibn 'Arabshah" (Miller, p. 258). Fairly well-held institutionally, but of great rarity in commerce, with no appearances in auction records.

      Paris: Chez Despilly, Libraire, rue Saint Jacques, a la Croix d'Or, 1767. FIRST EDITION. 8vo. 221 x 149 x 27 mm. Four-leaf title gathering, unsigned; 52 four-leaf fascicles, unsigned; 21-page index, unopened, signed C4. Housed in a custom clamshell box. Interior: Title soiled, worn at head margin, fasc. 17 with tear affecting one word ("Catalogue"), paper flaw with loss to tail fore-corner of C1 of index, not near text, scattered minor tears and soiling. An extraordinary copy preserved in Original Unbound Fascicles (uniquely so?) The "Catalogue Hebdomadaire" began humbly as a two-page, two-column sheet issued on Saturdays in 1763, which included only domestic books, then increased to four pages in 1764, and included foreign books (sold in Paris) as well. At the conclusion of each year a title page with half-title and detailed index were printed and sent to the subscriber1 so that they might bind them up with their 52 fascicles into a work of reference. [Nota bene: Subscriptions were available from the publisher at 6 livres 12 francs per annum]. The ambitions of the title page—that every book, act of Parlement, letter of patent, ordinance, map, sheet of music, print, etc., along with the price, format, print run, and addresses of vendors will be made known in the catalogue—were not often met, but the Catalogue Hebdomadaire is still an extraordinary bibliographic record of the tumultuous book trade in mid-to-late 18th-century France. Complete sets are rare; unbound and uncut sets with the index and title, as here, vanishingly so. REFERENCES: Delalain P.

Capell's edition appearedaround a similar time to Samuel Johnson'seight volume edition which relied upon the previousWarburton edition. Edward Capell was appalled by the undisciplined emendations of Hamner and Warburton's editions andthisset took him over twenty years. He spent timecollecting and collating scarce quarto and folio editions. He is the first editor of Shekespeare to explore Shakespeare's use of Holinshed's Chronicles and Sir Tomas North's Parallel Lives. William Shakespeare was the world's pre-eminent dramatist. He is widely regarded to be the greatest writer in the English language and his plays and poems are still widely read and performed today worldwide. Collated, this ten volume set is lacking the title page to volume X and is otherwise complete. A very scarce publication of Shakespeare's works, edited by a careful and thorough critic. Condition: In full calf bindings. Externally, rubbed to the spines and extremities. Further rubbing to the extremities. Front hinge and joint to volume I are weak and may detach with further handling. Rear hinge and joint to volume I aretender with cords showing. Front joint to volume VI is starting but firm with the hinge strained but firm. Loss to the spine of volume VI at the top spine label. Crack to the rear joint of volume VI resulting in the hinge becoming strained. Front hinge and joint to volume VII arestrained but firm. Front hinge to volume VIII is strained but firm. Rear joint to volume VIII has some loss at the head and is starting but firm. Rear hinge isstrained but firm. Front hinge to volume IX is strained but firm.

Small losses to the head and tail of spines to volumes I, II, III, VI, VII and X. Loss to the head of front joint to volume V. Volume X is lacking most of spine labels. Volume X is lacking title page and endpapers. Internally, all volumes are firmly bound. Pages are generally bright. Heavy spotting to Henry VI Part III to volume VI.

        SINGAPORE / MALAYSIA / STRAITS OF MALACCA / SUMATRA: A CHART OF THE SEAS BETWEEN THE STRAITS OF BANCA AND PO. TIMON: WITH THE EASTERN PART OF THE STRAITS OF MALACCA.

      Copper engraving with modern outline colour colour (Very Good, hardly noticeable age-toned with strong engraving impression and wide blank margins, with modern colour but tastefully executed; just a small area of restoration without loss in upper centre blank margin), 63 x 49 cm (24.8 x 19.3 inches). - London, 1767. Extremely Rare – the second state of the William Herbert’s chart of the Malacca-Singapore navigation, the first broadly accurate British sea chart of Asia’s busiest shipping lane, marking a milestone in the revival of hydrography sponsored by the East India Company, and a key chart used during the ascendency of British economic and political power in Southeast Asia and the Far East. William Herbert’s chart of the Malacca-Singapore navigation is perhaps the rarest of all the seminal sea charts focussing on Asia’s busiest shipping lane, and tends to be missing from even the finest map collections of the region. Importantly, it is a key work in the revival of hydrography sponsored by the British East India Company (EIC), being the first British printed chart to feature a broadly accurate and practically useful depiction of the passage through the Singapore Strait. The chart is a manifestation of Britain’s recent large-scale commercial expansion into Southeast Asia and the Far East, and features fresh details supplied by the crews of named British ships. The chart, present here in the first state (of 3), initially appeared within the third edition of Herbert’s The New Directory of the East Indies (1767), an incredibly rare atlas of Asian & African navigation that was sponsored by the EIC. The chart is extremely rare on the market; the last sales record we can trace dates from 1991. The fact that Herbert’s chart is not better known today is due to its rarity and the patchy modern scholarship on the maritime mapping of Southeast Asia. In reality, Herbert’s charts were critical tools used to affect the rise of Britain’s power in Southeast Asia and the Far East during the second half of the 18th Century. The present chart was particularly important, given the paramount role that the Malacca and Singapore straits played in British commercial and political interests. The chart, while not predicated on systematic trigonometric surveys, and which features notable errors, was nevertheless a great improvement upon its predecessors, being sufficiently accurate and detailed to provide critical assistance to practical navigation. It embraces the southern part of the Malay Peninsula (labelled here as ‘Part of the Peninsula of Malayo’), as far north as Malacca, in the west (which is marked in the far upper left); and the key anchorage site of ‘Po. Timon’ (Tioman Island), off of the east coast. It then extends southward to embrace the southern part of the Malacca Strait and the all of the Straits of Singapore, through the Riau Archipelago, down so far as to include all of ‘Banca’ (Banka) and the east-central portion of Sumatra, including the city of ‘Palimbam’ (Palembang).

Contemporary mottled calf, neatly rebacked preserving the original spine, red morocco label with double rule border in gilt, compartments double ruled in gilt, raised bands, sprinkled red edges. With the final blank leaf. Neat 20th-century ownership stamp of Swiss librarian Jean-Christophe Curtet, Geneva, to title leaf verso. Extremities lightly bumped and corners gently bruised, front hinge cracked but firm, endpapers browned from turn-ins, front free endpaper a little loose at gutter, occasional foxing and offsetting to contents, overall a very good copy. Third edition, the first edition to include the "Dissertation on the Origin of Languages", one of 750 copies.

The "Dissertation" had been previously published in The Philological Miscellany (1761). Having been described as "Professor of Moral Philosophy in the University of Glasgow" on the title pages of the first and second editions, Smith wrote to Strahan ahead of the publication of this edition to ask him to "call me simply Adam Smith without any addition either before or behind" (letter 100, Mossner & Ross, p. 122). While his academic title was removed, he was still credited as "LL.D.", and this remained on the title page of the subsequent editions, thus cementing his reputation as "Dr Smith".

He honed his financial skills working for the British army's paymaster-general during the latter stages of the War of the Spanish Succession. He next proved his understanding of the market by making fortunes speculating against John Law's Mississippi Company and by purchasing put options (the right to sell at a predetermined price) during the height of the South Sea Bubble. His successful speculations reinforced his view that the monetary system must be based on intrinsically valuable metals. The Essai is notable for its model building, its analysis of market forces and the role of the entrepreneur, its outline of the circular flow of income, and its monetary theory. The Essai had a significant influence in developing Quesnay's circular flow of income and on Adam Smith's theory of resource allocation in the Wealth of Nations (1776). In distinguishing between market price and intrinsic value and showing how resources moved into those sectors where the market price was above intrinsic value, and away from those sectors where market price was below intrinsic value, Cantillon influenced Adam Smith's famous distinction between market price and natural price. Cantillon also pre-empted later studies of human population, with a brief but almost complete anticipation of the principles of Malthus.

        Messiah. An Oratorio in Score as it was Originally Perform'd. Composed by Mr. Handel, to which are Added his Additional Alterations, Randall & Abell, successors to the late Mr. J. Walsh. Printed By Messrs. Randall & Abell, Successors to the Late Mr. J. Walsh in Catharine Street in the Strand-of Whom May be Had the Compleat Scores of Samson, Alexander's Feast, and Acis & Galatea.

      London Randell & Abell Circa 1767 - First edition, early printing of the instrumental and vocal score, engraved portrait frontispiece by J. Houbraken, engraved title, list of subscribers, index, 188 pages engraved throughout, plus 35 Appendix pages, very occasional, light marginal finger-soiling, mostly to preliminary pages, else very good, quarter calf over contemporary marbled boards, rebacked with gilt morocco lettering piece, later endpapers, all edges untrimmed, mild rubbing to extremities and bumping to corners (restored), otherwise a handsome, clean, early copy. While visiting Dublin in 1742, Handel was hungry to capitalise on his eager audience following on the success of two series of concerts he gave there, so he arranged the first performance of Messiah on April 13th. The premiere of Messiah was a triumph. The alto soloist, Susanna Cibber, was an actress who had attracted scandal in the past but legend has it that her emotional performance of 'He was despised' moved Dr Patrick Delany – the husband of one of Handel's most ardent champions - to exclaim 'Woman, for this, be all your sins forgiven'. The Dublin Journal's review proclaimed that 'the best Judges allowed it to be the most finished piece of Musick. Words are wanting to express the exquisite Delight it afforded to the admiring crouded Audience. The Sublime, the Grand, and the Tender, adapted to the most elevated, majestick and moving Words, conspired to transport and charm the ravished Heart and Ear.' ESTC T189237.

        Essais sur le commerce; le luxe; l'argent; l'intérêt de l'argent; les impots; le crédit public, et la balance du commerce.

      Paris & Lyon: Saillant & Aimé Delaroche,, 1767. Traduction nouvelle, avec des Réflexions du Traducteur. Et lettre d'un négociant de Londres, a un de ses amis … Traduite sur la seconde édition, imprimée à Londres en 1765. Octavo (166 x 103 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, red morocco label to spine, compartments ruled in gilt with floral motifs, raised bands, boards ruled in blind, marbled endpapers and edges. Engraved head- and tailpieces. Annotations to front free endpaper verso and rear free endpaper recto. Extremities lightly rubbed, corners bruised, contents tanned with a few ink marks, otherwise an excellent copy. Third edition in French of Hume's Political Discourses, translating the seven essays on economics which first appeared in English in 1752. Together they rank as one of the major economic writings of the eighteenth century. Hume's specific contributions to economic thought include the so-called "specie-flow mechanism" and the "theory of creeping inflation". O'Brien describes Hume's two essays "Of Money" and "Of the Balance of Trade" as forming "nothing less than the foundation of classical monetary economics" (The Classical Economists, p. 7ff). Although the translation has generally been attributed to Mademoiselle de la Chaux, Laurence Bongie has argued that it cannot be so conclusively credited.

        The English Works.

      London: Printed for T. Davies and J. Dodsley,, [1767]. With notes and observations, and the author's life. By James Bennet. Quarto (283 x 217 mm). Contemporary mottled calf (sometime skilfully repaired at front joint, head of spine and head of lower joint), richly gilt spine with pomegranate device and scrolling floriate motifs, red morocco twin labels, single line gilt border on sides, gilt roll tool turn-ins, yellow edges, marbled endpapers. Attractive rococo head-piece to dedication (with arms of Earl of Shaftesbury), engraved by F. Garden. A little wear to corners, minor paper flaw at fore-edge of title page. A very good copy. First collected and first Johnson edition, second issue: "this issue is distinguished by the new half-title and undated title, and by the absence of the single leaf of 'Additional Subscribers'; in all other respects it comprises the sheets from the first issue of 1761" (Fleeman). With the 4-page list of subscribers, to whom the book was originally issued in January 1762. The dedication "To Anthony Ashley Cooper, Earl of Shaftesbury," and the "Life of Roger Ascham" were written by Samuel Johnson. "Tom Davis stated that Johnson was 'in reality' the editor, and that he (Johnson) gave the work to Bennet for his advantage" (Courtney). Bennet was a "distressed schoolmaster" of a boarding school at Hoddesdon in Hertfordshire. Roger Ascham (1514/15-1568) was appointed tutor to Princess Elizabeth in 1548, Latin Secretary to Queen Mary in 1553 and private tutor to Queen Elizabeth in 1558. This collected edition gathers together three works: Toxophilus (1545), The Scholemaster (1570) and the Report of the Affairs of Germany (1552); the "Letters to Queen Elizabeth and others" are described as "now first published from the Manuscripts". This would appear to be the first printing of Toxophilus outside of the editions of the 16th century. A very attractive period binding with an intriguing and enigmatic provenance: the lower spine label carries a small gilt supralibros (which appears to be, in heraldic terms: on a bend three roundels), this has been carefully obliterated by a gilt reticulated pattern. With the Fasque bookplate of the Gladstone family: Fasque was "the Scottish house in the Mearns, in Kincardineshire, bought by [William Ewart Gladstone's] father, where he spent many parliamentary recesses until his father's death in 1851" (ODNB).

        Picturae Etruscorum in vasculis nunc primum in unum collectae, explicationibus, et dissertaionibus inlustrate .

      J. Zempel Rome -1775 1767 - First edition. 3 volumes, folio (45.5 x 29.8 cm), 3 half-titles, 3 engraved frontispieces, titles printed in red and black with engraved vignette, engraved initials, head and tailpieces, woodcut illustrations, engraved dedication leaf in volumes 2 and 3, 301 engraved plates (some double-page), 3 woodcut plates in volume 3, contemporary half pink vellum with patterned paper boards, spines gilt in compartments, uncut, some light foxing and browning, side lightly rubbed, a very good example. Passeri (1694-1780) was a respected antiquarian who primarily focused on Etruscan civilisation. This work was one of many published in the eighteenth century which saw the Etruscans as pioneers, artists and inventors whose achievements were overshadowed by the Romans. Passeri also contributes in this work to contemporary discussion on the Etruscan and Oscan languages. The three volumes illustrate vases from important collections all over Italy. Many of these vases were housed in the Galleria Clementina of the Vatican Library. Many of the vases illustrated in this work have been lost, making this publication a valuable record. A pupil of Domenichino, Passeri is first recorded as a practising artist in 1634, when he was working, together with Giovanni Angelo Canini (1617–c.1666), at the Villa Aldobrandini, Frascati. In 1638 he was admitted to the Accademia di S Luca (succeeding Domenichino as President in 1663), and in 1641 he became a member of the Virtuosi del Pantheon. In 1661 he executed frescoes in the Palazzo Pamphili, Rome, and in September 1665 he was paid by the Costaguti family for an altarpiece of the Crucifixion for their church at Roccalvecce, near Viterbo.
