London: Printed for J. Wickins; and to be sold by the Booksellers of London and Westminster, 1695. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. Very good. Octavo. COLLATION: A-B4 C-F8 G-Q4, COMPLETE. [2], 19-176 pp. Attractive half calf antique, marbled boards, red morocco label gilt, compartments gilt with small tools. FIRST EDITION of this important collection of Parliamentary debates, providing original and valuable documentation of the constitutional crisis that ensued during the Glorious Revolution of 1688. James II of England (a.k.a. James VII of Scotland), while fleeing to France, dropped the Great Seal of the Realm into the Thames. In Parliament the question was discussed whether he had forfeited the throne or had abdicated. The present volume offers detailed arguments for the both, but ultimately the latter designation was agreed upon, and in a full assembly of the Lords and Commons, it was resolved in spite of James's protest "that King James II having endeavored to subvert the constitution of the kingdom,… Read more

Description:
New York: Doubleday, 1996. Hardcover. Very Good/Very good. Octavo, 470 pages, original cloth with dustjacket. Illustrated throughout in black and white and color. The flowering of civilization, the rebirth of classical scholarship, and the emergence of some of the greatest artists and thinkers the world has known: this is the traditional view of the Renaissance. In this lively, provocative, and wholly absorbing new book, Lisa Jardine offers a radical new interpretation, arguing that the creation of culture during the Renaissance was inextricably tied to the creation of wealth.

The Origins of "Deep State" Conspiracy Theories, Deep in the Heart of Texas.

PRESENTATION COPY FROM THE AUTHOR TO THE TAXIDERMIST WHO UNDERTOOK THE ACTUAL 20-DAY DISSECTION. This Abyssinian female giraffe, named "Twiga" (the Swahili word for giraffe), was transported alive to Toulouse in 1843 at the age of approximately 3 years. She died on January 4, 1844, either from the harshness of the European climate or (as some said) nostalgia for her homeland. In any event, after she was dissected and studied by researchers she was cooked and eaten by multiple Toulousian families at the Feast of Epiphany (!) The… Read more

Description:
Vienna: J. Grämmer, 1798. First Edition. Very good. 32mo. (100 x 60 mm), two works in one volume (register continuous). Toiletten Kalender: [30] pp. With frontispiece (signed "Cl. Kohl, sc."), engraved title-page, and 18 unnumbered engraved plates. Taschenbuch: 36, [42] pp. Original publisher's boards covered with engraved wrappers (front joint with small splits, two almost imperceptible spots on front cover). Engraving on front cover: "Die Malerey" / lower cover: Die Zeichnung," delicately decorated floral endpapers, all edges gilt. A lovely Viennese publisher's binding, elegantly and ingeniously manufactured; it is not entirely surprising that the present volume was actually published by a bookbinder (see below). No other copy of this 1798 "Toiletten Kalender" has been located. The editors of the "Musenalm Bibliographie deutscher Almanache (1770-1870)" recorded the existence of this edition but can provide no information about it. The almanac was created for women of means and social status, and… Read more

Description:
Boston and New York: Joy, Langdon & Co, 1873. Very good. Textile product label (170 x 135). Engraved script below imprint cropped affecting several words, one short tear, corner chip, light soil. Our example appears to have actually been used for its original purchase, namely pasted on fabric as there is still glue residue on the verso, and numbering in pencil and also red ink on the verso. The number of yards of the fabric is recorded in contemporary ink: "48.2" Wonderfully gloomy factory scene rendered at the height of the American Industrial Revolution. The engraving depicts the Boston manufacturing plant of Joy, Langdon & Co., located at 76 Chauncey Street. Here the viewer is confronted by a bleak "no exit" view, with towering factories on both sides bisected by train tracks leading inexorably towards a belching smoke stack; on the left is an almost ecclesiastical looking building topped with a bell tower. The scene is populated with a total of seven men in suits and top-hats; curiously, the… Read more
