Description:
Philadelphia: A. Hart, 1852. 262 x 178 mm. (10 5/16 x 7"). Three volumes. Very attractive contemporary light tan half calf over marbled boards, raised bands, spines heavily gilt in latticed compartments, black and brown morocco labels. Front free endpaper with ink ownership inscription of Irving Maury(?) of Auburn, dated April 14, 1853 (with a note that he paid $8 for the set). One volume with small snag at head of spine, extremities with minor rubbing, leather just a bit dry and with small roughened patches in a few places, one page with ink splatter across (but not obscuring) text, other trivial imperfections, but an excellent set, the text very smooth and clean, and the bindings solid and attractive on the shelf. The American publishers of Bacon's works used the excellent Basil Montagu edition issued in London by Pickering, but excluded the original Latin text, choosing to provide only Montagu's translation. The editing of Bacon was a major achievement in the life of Montagu (1770-1851), a… Read more

Boston: Edes and Gill, 1758. FIRST EDITION. 159 x 89 mm. (6 1/4 x 3 1/2"). vi, 209, [3] pp. FIRST EDITION. Austere but pleasing contemporary sprinkled sheepskin, raised bands flanked by double gilt fillets. Front free endpaper with ink ownership inscription of S. Williams dated 1759; title page with ink inscription of E. Church dated 1847. Evans 8081. Mild dampstaining to lower outer corner of a half dozen gatherings, faint overall browning (typical of American imprints like this one), F2 with two small paper flaws affecting three words on either side of the leaf, K5 with two-inch light brown stain, but still quite an excellent copy, the text fresh, and the original unsophisticated sheepskin binding in unusually fine condition, with only trivial wear. This unprepossessing volume of sermons by a Congregational minister is a superb example of an early American binding in outstanding condition. The theological meditations making up the text examine the divinity (versus the human nature) of Christ,… Read more

Front pastedown with engraved bookplate of Major Bryan Palmes; title page with a stamp of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina ("Bibliot. Bossianae Alexandrinae"). Lowry, "World of Aldus Manutius," pp. 155-58; Edit16; CNCE 4985; USTC 813362; Brunet I, 776. First leaf with two neat repairs to wormholes (one affecting a couple of letters), a third of the leaves with faint dampstain to half the page, occasional minor marginal smudges or faint foxing, but still an excellent copy, generally clean and fresh, in a nearly unworn binding. Containing an important Renaissance text by a major figure in Italian literature, this book is also an accomplished piece of piracy, reproducing both the content and the appearance of the first edition printed by Aldus Manutius.

(8 x 6"). 18 p.l., 611, [1] pp. (601-08 misnumbered 561-68), [8] leaves. FIRST EDITION. New unlettered limp vellum by Courtland Benson in imitation of the original binding. STC 1896. Half a dozen gatherings a little browned, occasional mild foxing or small rust spots, additional trivial imperfections, otherwise an excellent copy, clean and very fresh, in a pleasing new binding. This conversation manual by an Italian teacher based in London offers an intriguing glimpse into the lives and concerns of the wealthier classes in 17th century Europe. An early effort to teach language through dialogue, the book is part cultural history, part guide to better health, and it is clear evidence of the importance of the study of Italian in Elizabethan and Jacobean England. The seven dialogues cover subjects from health to travel to servants, with… Read more
