        Jesuitisches Reich in Paragay [Paraguay] durch Originaldocumente der Gesellschaft Jesu bewiesen von dem aus dem Jesuiterorden verstoßenen Pater Ibagnez. Aus dem Italienischen [von Anton Ernst Klausing].

      Cölln [ie Hannover] Peter Marteau [ie Hahn] 1774 - Kl. 8°. (8) 263 (1) Seiten. Halbleder der Zeit mit dreiseitig gefärbtem Schnitt. (Vorsatzblatt entfernt, ein Blatt im Inhaltsverzeichnis mit zwei kleinen Löchern mit kleinem Textverlust, im Druckbild gebräunt). Sabin 34147. GV, Bd. 68, 147. Herzog 11, 101. - Erschien vier Jahre nach dem Tod des Ibañez de Echavarri. Das spanische Original wurde ins Italienische übertragen, aus dem Italienischen übersetzte Klausing dann ins Deutsche. Mit einem Vorwort des Verlegers und einem weiteren von Klausing. -- Historisch befindet sich die Schrift zwischen dem Ende der Vorherrschaft der Jesuiten in Paraguay 1767 und der späteren Staatsgründung im Jahr 1811. Bernhard Ibañez war bei seiner Einreise nach Paraguay noch Jesuit und büßte seine Zugehörigkeit zum Orden während des Aufenthalts ein. Er kritisierte das "weltliche Regiment", die Anhäufung von Reichtum und besonders die Angaben, die hierzu gegenüber der spanischen Administration gemacht wurden und die er sich in seiner Schrift im Detail vornimmt und widerlegt. Die Jesuiten hatten in mehr als 160 Jahre in Paraguay die zahlreichen selbstverwalteten Enklaven, "Reduktionen" genannt, zu wirtschaftlichem Erfolg geführt und dem Einflußbereich der spanischen Krone schließlich entzogen. Die Schrift des Ibañez de Echavarria dokumentierte das. 1767 wurden die "Reduktionen" aufgelöst. Ibañez verließ Paraguay, kehrte nach Spanien zurück, wo wenig später starb. 1,000 gr.

        Publii Virgilii Maronis Bucolica et Georgica tabulis Aeneis olim a Johanne Pine sculptore Regio defuncto illustrata opus paternum in lucem profert Robertus Edge Pine. [Two volumes bound as one.]

      n. pr 1774 - 80 plates on 59 sheets (including two frontispieces, title-pages, and section titles, and 6 engraved dedications - two of them on the verso of letterpress pages; one plate double-page), frequent further engravings within the text, advertisement leaf discarded, pp. XV, [I], 49, [6], 52-144, [4], 8vo, contemporary tree calf, spine divided by a gilt fillet, red morocco lettering piece, other compartments with central sunburst gilt tools, a bit rubbed, spine creased, gutters cracking towards the middle of the textblock but the binding perfectly sound, bookplates of Magdalen College, Oxford and Sir Richard Paul Jodrell, with an inscription indicating the gift of the volume from the former to the latter dated 1802, good. Pine's Virgil, less well-known and less commonly seen than his Horace of 1733-7 (but no less elegant), was begun in 1755 but the project was halted by Pine's death when only the Eclogues and Georgics had been illustrated and issued. In 1774 his son, Robert Edge Pine, a notable painter in his own right, published this reissue with new preliminaries. Unlike the Horace, which was wholly engraved, this combines illustrations with letterpress, though the engravings are still demonstrations of Pine's remarkable skill. The publication was complicated: as Kallendorf puts it, there are 'significant variations among copies in placement of engraved matter and imposition of letterpress'; in this case the engraved dedication to the Marchioness of Granby is present on the verso of p. 95, and the engraved dedication to Robert Lowth, Bishop of Oxford, is present on the verso of p. 119. ESTC asserts that the plates in the 1774 reissue have been altered to add 'Vol. II', but that has not been done to the plates in this copy (or the last copy we handled). The wording of the inscription in this copy indicates that it was Magdalen College (or the fellows thereof) who gave this book to 'R.P. Jodrell', in 1802, rather than the other way around. The bookplate is of Sir Richard Paul Jodrell, second baronet (1781-1861), so it may have been a prize of some sort, since he took his BA there in 1804, having already been called to the bar the year before. The name in the inscription could also refer to his father, a playwright and classical scholar, but the elder Jodrell had no connection to Magdalen College. (There are references to the younger Jodrell instead attending Magdalen Hall - later renamed Hertford College, replacing the defunct Hertford where the elder Jodrell had studied - but Alumnae Oxoniensis and the inscription & bookplate here are clear in their use of 'College' instead of 'Hall'.)

        Naauwkeurige waarneemingen omtrent de veranderingen van veele insekten of gekorvene diertjes.

      Amsterdam, Johannes Sluyter, 1774. - Large folio (430 x 270 mm). (4), 34, (2) pp. With etched and engr. vignette on title page (2 people in a woods, in a decorative cartouche including 2 butterflies), and 33 numbered etched and engr. plates showing 70 kinds of insects (numbered in the text), vignette and all plates in original colour. Contemp. boards covered with sprinkled paper, sewn on 4 vellum tapes. The second, greatly enlarged edition of a set of finely etched and engraved plates depicting the metamorphosis of 70 sorts of butterflies, moths and other flying insects in their natural surroundings, the specimens collected, drawn, etched and engraved, and the descriptions written by Jacob l'Admiral (1700-70), first published in 1740 with only 25 plates. The present edition adds 8 plates prepared (along with their descriptive text) by l'Admiral but not previously published, along with a 2-page foreword by the editor, Martinus Houttuyn (1720-98). Most plates show the species as egg, larva, pupa and adult, both male and female, placed on the plants they frequent in their natural habitat. Scientifically it was a great advance over all that went before, including the pioneering work of Maria Sibylla Merian. The present foreword tells us that l'Admiral began studying butterflies at the age of ten and gives Houttuyn's personal recollections of l'Admiral and his work. He collected the specimens during thirty years of travel and intended the first edition with 25 plates to be one of four parts for a total of 100 plates. He finished only 8 additional plates before his death in 1770 and had not yet published them or his descriptions. After l'Admiral's death the bookseller Sluyter bought all the copperplates at auction and Houttuyn prepared the new descriptions from l'Admiral's manuscript. A few plates were revised after the first edition, probably by l'Admiral himself. Plate XII depicts a tulip. - With the 1896 bookplate (signed "TM") of "Tine. v. H", the artist and former prostitute Martina Hogervorst (1865-1928) who married the lithographer Theo van Hoytema in 1891 (divorced 1902), with a bird, insects and plants.

        Journal of the Proceedings of the Congress, held at Philadelphia, September 5, 1774

      Printed by William and Thomas Bradford, at the London Coffee House, Philadelphia 1774 - (7 3/4 x 4 3/4 inches). [4],144pp. Expertly bound to style in quarter 18th century russia over period marbled paper covered boards, flat spine divided into compartments with gilt double fillets, morocco lettering piece in the second compartment, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt. Housed in a modern full blue morocco box. The journal of the first Continental Congress. The Journals of the first Continental Congress, describing meetings from Sept. 5 to Oct. 20, 1774, is one of the most basic documents of the American Revolution. This is the very rare issue of 144 pages, with the correctly dated state of the titlepage, probably issued several months after the first (with 132pp. only, omitting the Petition to the King, and the correct date in Roman numerals). Committees of Correspondence, responding to the Intolerable Acts passed by Parliament in the wake of the Boston Tea Party, resolved to hold a Continental Congress in June of 1774. Delegates from twelve colonies (none from Georgia) gathered in Philadelphia in the fall. It included many of the most distinguished men in America: Samuel and John Adams, Roger Sherman, John Jay, Joseph Galloway, John Dickinson, Richard Henry Lee, George Washington, Edmund Pendleton, and Henry Middleton, among others. The Congress succeeded in taking numerous important steps. On Oct. 14 they adopted a Declaration of Rights, and agreed to an Association governing imports and exports and boycotting British goods. They also drafted and sent an Address to the People of Great Britain and another Address to the Inhabitants of the Province of Quebec. They agreed to reassemble on May 10, 1775. This issue of the Journals adds twelve highly important pages of text, consisting of the address to King George III ("The Petition to the King") arguing the American position, asking for redress, and promising loyalty if the status quo of 1764 was restored. This text was agreed upon and voted in executive session on Oct. 1, 1774, and probably reached England in early November. This text does not appear in the 132pp. issue, probably published in November, because it was still secret. The Petition certainly reached Lord North, but it is unclear the King ever saw it. By mid-January 1775, as the flow of events progressed and it seemed unlikely there would be a response (there never was), it was published in this second issue of the Journals, possibly issued on Jan. 17-18, 1775. The titlepage for the Journal of 1774 bears the famous seal of the Congress, showing twelve hands representing the twelve participating colonies supporting a column topped with a Liberty Cap and resting on the Magna Charta. Rare and desirable. Evans 13737, Howes J263, "aa." [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Tractado de paz, de navegacao, e de commercio entre o Senhor Rey D. Jozé I° eo Imperador de Marrocos assignado em 13 de Novembro de 1774.

      Palacio de N. S.a da Ajuda (Lisboa), 13. XI. 1774. - 4to. Title and 24 pp., all inset into folio leaves. Marbled spine. Rare contemporary manuscript copy of the peace treaty, in 22 articles, concluded between King José I of Portugal and the Sultanate of Morocco. After the Reconquista, Portugal had expanded into Africa, starting with the territory of Morocco, by occupying cities and establishing fortified outposts along the Atlantic coast. The Portuguese seized numerous Moroccan cities and built coastal fortresses there, but most of these had to be abadoned soon. When Tangier was ceded to England in 1661 and Ceuta finally handed over to Spain in 1668, Portugal's direct involvement in Morocco had essentially come to a close, and when King Juan I abandoned Mazagan under the pressure of Mohamed ben Abdallah in 1769, Moroccan reconquest was complete. Five years later, in 1774, the Governments of Morocco and Portugal concluded a Peace and Friendship Agreement, one of the oldest bilateral agreements of both nations. Ever since his accession in 1757, Sultan Mohamed had sought to adopt the European trading system, while simultaneously safeguarding the spirit of Islam amongst his peoples. To this end, he ratified earlier peace treaties with Great Britain and with the Netherlands, then went on to sign several more, beginning with Denmark, Sweden and Venice; similar treaties were closed with France and Spain (both 1767) and Tuscany (1782). A fundamental principle that was enshrined in all of them was rooted in the annual payment of a fee in cash or in kind. - Slight browning to inset leaves. Apparently removed from a 19th-century document collection, with the original leaves remargined to folio size. A principal document of Luso-Moroccan relations.

        ANNO REGNI GEORGII III. DECIMO QUARTO. CAP. LIV. AN ACT FOR THE BETTER PROVIDING SUITABLE QUARTERS FOR OFFICERS AND SOLDIERS IN HIS MAJESTY's SERVICE IN NORTH AMERICA [caption title].

      London. 1774. - [2],1251-1252pp. Folio. Two leaves, in three-quarter calf and marbled boards. Near fine. The Boston Tea Party of December 16, 1773 unified both the protesting colonists in America and the forces of reaction in Great Britain in their respective positions. News of it arrived in London in January, 1774. From the point of view of the English government of Lord North, which commanded a firm majority in Parliament, the Tea Party represented an outrageous act of defiance which must be quashed. As soon as news arrived in London, legislation was prepared to punish the defiant colonists and bring the colonies, especially Massachusetts, firmly to heel. Their goal was to punish Massachusetts for the Tea Party and extend direct Royal control at the expnse of popular liberty. Between March 31 and June 22, 1774, five acts were passed which became known collectively as the Coercive or Intolerable Acts. As news of each reached America, with troops to enforce it, a new spirit of defiance was kindled. Among these was the Quartering Act, passed June 2, 1774 and aimed specifically at Massachusetts. It allowed for the lodging and billeting of British soldiers with families and on private property. This shifted some of the cost of maintaining an army in the colony to the colonists, besides the difficulty of having soldiers in homes. Of all the acts, this directly affected the most people. The Intolerable Acts brought strong and immediate reaction throughout the colonies. The most important was the calling of a Continental Congress, first proposed by Rhode Island on May 17, four days after General Gage took over the government of Massachusetts as a Military Governor. A key step on the road to Revolution.

Redolent of the 1780s in its strictly contemporary binding, Campbell's Political Survey describes the England that the First Fleet left behind.More than dry political economy, the survey contains a wealth of information regarding the trades, agriculture, transportation, fisheries, seaports, markets and natural resources of Britain. The author was appointed the King's agent for the province of Georgia in 1765; accordingly this survey is rich with reference to the American and West Indian colonies (although the possibility of revolution is conspicuously absent). The subtitle itself says much of the author's aspirations for national self-sufficiency: the book is 'intended to shew That we have not as yet approached near the Summit of Improvement, but that it will afford Employment to many Generations before they push to their utmost Extent the natural advantages of Great Britain.'This set, with its elegant binding, bears the bookplates and ownership signature of Alexander Allardyce (c.1743-1801), a Scottish slaver who made his fortune in the West Indies. Upon his return home, Allardyce entered parliament and spent lavishly on the improvement of Dunottar House near Aberdeen and its magnificent walled garden. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Earlier editions of Frankli's electricity were published in separate parts. "The most dramatic result of Franklins researches was the proof that lightning is really an electrical phenomenon. Others had made such a suggestion before him--even Newton himself--but it was he who provided the experimental proof. In 1752 he flew a kite in a thunderstorm and attached a key to its string. From this he collected electric charges in a Leiden jar and showed that atmospheric and frictional or machine-made electricity are the same.His reputation as a scientist was immediately established by the publication of the results of his researches in a series of letters addressed to Peter Collinson, a London merchant and naturalist." (PMM). The first edition was published between 1751 and 1754. PMM 199 (1st Ed); Sabin 25506; Waller 11340; Wellcome III, p.62. VG-, a few very old repairs necessitated by extremely thin paper.

        Political arithmetic Containing observations on the present state of Great Britain; and the principles of her policy in the encouragement of agriculture Addressed to the Oeconomical Societies established in Europe To which is added, a memoir on the corn trade: drawn up and laid before the commissioners of the Treasury By Governor Pownall

      London: W. Nicoll, 1774. 8vo, xii + (4) + 366 + (2)pp, complete with the final leaf of advertisements, contemporary mottled calf, spine fully gilt with raised bands and gilt label, joints with some wear and cracking, but still a good, sound, binding. A very good copy indeed from the late 18th century library of John Cator* with his armorial bookplate.> First edition. A second volume was published in 1779 but the two volumes are rarely found together. The 2nd volume was clearly an afterthought unplanned in 1774. Kress 7066. Goldsmiths 11103. Higgs 5881. Einaudi 6093. Young's Political Arithmetic> is probably his most obvious excursion into economic theory (Young called it 'one of my best works'). It was largely motivated by his enduring drive to increase the profitability and product of agriculture. Nevertheless there is much here on wider economic issues; Young enthusiastically, for example, tackled what he labelled as 'false propositions'. Among these he included matters such as taxes on consumption, Quesnay's Maxims> in the Encyclopedie>, population, 'false ideas of the French writers', and so forth. The book was translated into several European languages. John Cator (1728-1806) was a wealthy timber merchant and landowner and Member of Parliament. Among other things, he was responsible for the layout of much of the area around Blackheath and Beckenham (Kent), which he transformed into a significant suburban town with opulent houses situated along wide tree-lined avenues.

        Autographed Endorsement Signed "Jas. Warren Sheriff" on the back of a partly printed document signed

      Plymouth, 1774. unbound. 2 pages (front and back), 6.75 x 8.25 inches, Boston, February 18, 1774 -- a warrant requesting that the Sheriff of Suffolk & Plymouth Counties attach the property of certain individuals, and to assure that said persons appear before the Court of Common Pleas safely. On the back, Warren responds to the warrant which he has executed: "Plymouth, March 7th, 1774, explaining in detail that he has attached a large piece of land, including the boundaries and related landmarks, and requesting a Sheriffs fee of 8 pounds / 6 shillings." Ironically, on the opposite fold from Warren's endorsement appears a clerk's notation: "Mr. Officer, Attach sufficient - or hold to Bail by order of John Adams," written just two months after the Boston Tea Party! Uniformly toned with weak folds including one that has been lightly reinforced with archival tape. The endorsement by James Warren is boldly written, taking up one complete panel, 3 x 6.5 inches, with a dark clear signature. An exceptional association piece in very good(-) condition. American patriot and arguably one of the most important figures in the instigation of hostilities between the Colonies and the British Government. He was one of the founders of the Sons of Liberty, fought at Bunker Hill, Major General of the State Militia, a planner of the Boston Tea Party, and lifelong friend of John Adams. In addition, he was a correspondent and adviser to Patrick Henry, Samuel Adams, John Hancock, Thomas Jefferson and George Washington.

Illustrated with engraved title-page and 25 engraved plates numbered I-XXIV, [XXV], including 7 folding showing 1 view of military exercises, 2 Arabic inscriptions and 4 maps. The unnumbered map of Yemen (plate size 58.5 x 39 cm) is colored by hand in outline. The full-page plates include maps, topographic views, costumes, coins, Arabic inscriptions, etc. Among the maps: (Tab. XVII) Port of Keschin; (Tab. XVIII) Map of Oman with Muscat and Doba; (Tab. XIX) Map of the Persic Gulf; (Pags. 338-339) Map of the Red Sea; (Tab. XXIII) Map of Suez and Sinai; (Pags. 408-409) Map of Yemen. First and only editions of the Dutch translation by Jac. van Ekers of a description of Arabia, Egypt and the Middle East (ad 1) and an account of a voyage to Arabia and surrounding countries (ad 2). Both works were originally written by the Danish traveler and surveyor Carsten Niebuhr (1733-1815) and published in German, in Copenhagen in 1772 under the titles: Beschreibung von Arabien, and Reisenbeschreibung nach Arabien und andern umliegenden Lander. Both works were also translated into French and English. In 1760 Niebuhr was invited to join a scientific expedition to Egypt. Other members of the expedition were Friedrich Christian von Haven (a Danish linguist and orientalist), Christian Carl Kramer (a Danish physician and zoologist), Georg Baurenfeind (an artist from southern Germany), Berggren (a Swedish ex-soldier) and Pehr Forrskal (a Swedish botanist). In January 1761, the expedition sailed from Copenhagen, Denmark to Alexandria, Egypt. The members of the expedition spent a year in Egypt, visiting Suez and Mount Sinai. They left Suez in October 1762 and sailed to Yemen. In May 1763 they reached Mocha where Von Haven and Forrskal died from malaria. In August 1763 Baurenfeind and Berggren died, followed by Kramer in February 1764. Niebuhr was the only one left to continue the expedition. In 1764, he explored India, sailing from Bombay to Muscat, as well as Shiraz, Babylon, Baghdad, Mosul, and Aleppo. He spent some time in Persepolis in 1765 where he has made very detailed drawings and maps, which were used for more than a hundred years. In 1766, he explored Palestine before finally returning to Copenhagen on 20 November 1767, after a journey of seven years. When he returned to Copenhagen the Swedish government warmly welcomed him and paid the costs of engraving the plates to illustrate his accounts of the voyage. Both works are lavishly illustrated, having together 2 large maps of Yemen and 148 beautifully engraved maps, plans and views of all the regions Niebuhr visited. Location/localizacao: PCS

        A Father's Legacy to his daughters ?the fourth edition

      London: for W, Strahan [etc.], 1774. Fourth edition. Pp. [i]-x[-xii]; 1-132. Half-title. 1 vols. 12mo. Contemporary speckled calf, red morocco lettering-piece to spine. Provenance: P. Johnston, Lincoln's Inn (inscription). Fourth edition. Pp. [i]-x[-xii]; 1-132. Half-title. 1 vols. 12mo. An excellent copy of an unusually early edition of this best-seller: but a work that did not find favour with Mary Wollstonecraft. The author, Dr. John Gregory, served as professor of medicine at the universities of Aberdeen and Edinburgh. The present work was written in 1761 after the death of his wife, but was not published until 1774, after Dr. Gregory's own death. It proved to be his most popular book, going through a great many editions (at least six appeared in 1774). It served as a sort of memorial to his wife, and he included his wife's thoughts about the education of their two daughters, the eldest of whom was Dorothea Gregory (d. 1830). "He may have incorporated the advice given him by his friend and celebrated bluestocking Elizabeth Montagu, who approved his pattern of educating the girls 'in a philosophical simplicity'" (L. Hunt. Montagu MSS, MO 3183, Elizabeth Montagu to Elizabeth Carter, 9 September 1766). "This little work was not intended for publication, but was to be given to his daughters after his death. However, it was published by his son James in 1774 and was an immediate success, running into many editions and translations. The work contains advice on religion and moral conduct, female friendship, and behaviour towards the opposite sex, principally regarding love and marriage. Deploring the forwardness and freedom of contemporary female manners, Gregory argued that modesty, delicacy, and elegance would better secure men's respect and admiration. His concern for his daughters' reputations in the world led him to advocate caution and prudence; thus he advised them to conceal their learning and wit, advice that was scornfully dismissed as a system of dissimulation by Mary Wollstonecraft in Vindication of the Rights of Woman" (Oxford DNB).

        Letters to married women. The third edition, revised, and considerably enlarged

      London: printed for the author; and sold by G. Kearsly, 1774. 12mo., xvii + (3) + 256pp., including the leaf of advertisements before the main register (advertising Smith's Family Physician>), with the contemporary armorial bookplate of Grant Mitchell on front pastedown and the near-contemporary signature of Charlotta Amelia Mitchell >on title-page, contemporary plain sheep, worn at joints. A very good crisp copy. First published in 1767: 2nd ed. 1768: 3rd ed. 1774. Translated into French 1770: into Dutch 1775: and the 1st American edition, Philadelphia 1792. Although copies of the first three editions of Smith's popular little work are now very scarce, later editions, particularly those of the 6th ed. of 1792, are relatively common. Letters to married women> is a group of 15 'letters' in each of which the author addresses various aspects of pregnancy and child care (Letters I - XII), milk (Letter XIII), the sick chamber (Letter XIV), and old age and death (Letter XV), the last letter being dated March 20, 1774. It is primarily, though, on the subject of pregnancy, infancy, and children that Smith's book was considered an authority. The first two chapters, however, consider the subject of 'marks' or birthmarks, and Smith goes about showing that the popular view that such marks 'have been generally considered as the effect of a fright, or a disappointment of the mothers longings' has no scientific validity. The author, although a convinced advocate of breast feeding - and he also warns of the 'evils' of 'delivering children to the care of foster-nurses' - describes here an artificial breast or infant suckling system of his own design. 'Since this book made its first appearance', Smith writes, 'I have contrived a milk-pot for my own nursery ... For the satisfaction of my readers I shall give a description of it. This pot is somewhat in form like an urn; it contains a little more than a quarter of a pint; its handle, and neck or spout, are not unlike those of a coffee-pot, except that the neck of this arises from the very bottom of the pot, and is very small ... The end of the spout is a little raised, and forms a roundish knob, somewhat in appearance like a small heart; this is perforated by three or four small holes: a piece of fine rag is tied loosely over it, which serves the child to play with, instead of the nipple, and through which, by the infant's sucking, the milk is constantly strained. The child is equally satisfied as it would be with the breast; it never wets him in the least; he is obliged to labour for every drop he receives in the same manner as when at the breast; and, greatly in recommendation of this contrivance, the nurses confess it is more convenient than a boat, and that it saves a great deal of trouble in the feeding of an infant; which is the greatest security to parents, that their servants will use it, when they themselves are not present' Smith concludes by announcing that 'the model of this milk-pot is left with Mr. Morrison, at the Three Kings, in Cheapside, for the benefit of the public. The milk-pots are now also made in the Queen's-ware, in order that the poor may be accommodated'. Hugh Smith, M.D. (1736?-1789), from a family of medical practitioners, practised at Hatton Garden in London, having graduated M.D. from Leyden in 1755. He married the wealthy daughter of Archibald Maclean of Trevor Park, East Barnet.

      London printed; Hartford reprinted: Eben. Watson 8vo (21.6 cm, 8.5"). 63, [1] pp.. 1774 One of five American editions appearing in 1774, following the London first of the same year, of this important polemic. The second Baron Rokeby was a politician and champion of civil liberties who published several pamphlets opposing Lord North's American policy; Appletons' Cyclopaedia of American Biography notes that "the measures for the coercion of the American colonies were especially repugnant to his sense of justice" (V, 287). As supportive as he was of the American cause, Robinson-Morris was also critical of Dr. Franklin, whose inflammatory writings are here compared to Fawkes's gunpowder. Period-style quarter calf with marbled paper–covered sides, leather edges tooled in blind, spine with gilt-stamped title and elegant small decorations at head and foot. Pages age-toned; three leaves with minor staining. Title-page with repaired chip to outer margin, traces of early inked inscriptions in center of page, and partially shaved inscription in upper margin.
