Description:
Lugduni: Seb. Gryphium, 1556. 175 x 110 mm. (6 3/4 x 4 1/4"). 567, [73] pp. Contemporary calf, blind ruled covers with a central gilt tool and smaller tools in each corner of the panel, raised bands, compartments each with a gilt flower tool. Title page with printer's device, a few inhabited woodcut initials, several in-text diagrams, including the famous world map. A few passages underlined in ink and the occasional marginal note in a contemporary (?) hand. Edges and corners a bit bumped and worn, spine a touch crackled and with a few small wormholes, some abrasions and stains to the covers (more noticeable on the back), but the original unrestored binding entirely sound and certainly appealing; lacking front free endpaper, one opening with several ink splotches obscuring a few lines of text, a thin streak of dampstaining just kissing the edges of the text block, a few negligible wormholes affecting one or two signatures, but still an excellent contemporary copy, with a very clean and… Read more

Description:
New York: N. C. Nafis, 1833. 144 x 85 mm. (5 5/8 x 3 3/8"). 71 pp. PUBLISHER'S ORIGINAL GRAY-GREEN PRINTED BOARDS, upper cover with titling and an illustration of a gentleman identified as the author, lower cover with two amusing woodcuts, "The Lawyer and his Client" (a bewigged gentleman astride an ass) and "Hocus Poke-us" (two boys fighting). In a brown cloth chemise and a (slightly rubbed) matching calf-backed slipcase. With a folding frontispiece depicting a conjurer and his assistant onstage before an amazed crowd. Toole-Stott 724. Small stains at top and bottom of spine, covers just slightly grubby, endpapers a bit browned, text with light, inoffensive foxing, but, for what it is, AN UNUSUALLY FINE COPY, the fragile binding entirely sound, and the text remarkably fresh and clean. Given the materials it was made from and the hard use it would have been expected to suffer, this is an exceptionally well-preserved copy of a popular handbook of conjuring tricks, an… Read more

Description:
Paris: Guidonem Caillou, 1678. 228 x 170 mm. (9 x 6 5/8"). 8 p.l., 384 pp.Translated and edited by Ludovicus de Compiegne de Veil. Contemporary sprinkled calf, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with floral decoration, red morocco label, marbled edges. With three double-page engraved plates by Claude Perrault. Front pastedown with engraved armorial bookplate of Nath[aniel] Cholmley. Short cracks at head of front and tail of rear joint, corners a bit bumped, leather a little pitted from acid treatment, but the binding still solid; occasional thumbing, a few corner creases, otherwise an excellent copy internally, the leaves clean and crisp. This is an important portion of the magnum opus of Rabbi Moses ben Maimon's "Mishneh Torah" ("Review of the Torah"), one of the great Jewish legal texts, innovative at the time of its composition because of its new system of legal codification, and of enduring influence to the present day because of its scope and clarity.

Description:
London: John Murray, 1817. FIRST EDITION. 229 x 152 mm. (9 x 6"). 2 p.l., 327, [1] pp. FIRST EDITION. ORIGINAL BLUE PAPER BOARDS, neatly rebacked in buff paper, original printed paper spine label, UNTRIMMED EDGES. 19th century bookplate. Goldsmith 21762; Kress B.6973; Palgrave II, 676. Spine label chipped and rubbed, with significant loss of legibility, a little soil and wear to original sides (as expected), but the boards surprisingly well preserved, and the well-restored binding absolutely tight. First few leaves and last three gatherings freckled with foxing, minor foxing elsewhere, a few trivial spots, but excellent internally, still rather fresh and not at all darkened or browned. An Essay on the Principle of Population, the great work of Malthus (1766-1834), was first published in 1798. Its main thesis held that while population increases in a geometric ratio, the means of subsistence only increase arithmetically, with the inevitable result that the expanding population will eventually… Read more

Description:
France [Avignon?], 1370-85 [but see below]. 200 x 144 mm. (7 7/8 x 5 5/8"). Single column, most leaves with 26-30 lines, in an attractive Secretary hand. See: Briquet, "Les Filigranes: Dictionnaire Historique des Marques du Papier dés Leur Apparition vers 1282 jusqu'en 1600," I (1966). Edges slightly worn and nicked, paper lightly toned and with occasional faint foxing, one leaf with two small marginal ink stains and another with a little soiling and fading down the center of one side, but very well-preserved specimens, all clean and entirely legible. These leaves contain a register of clerics who were inducted as chaplains around the time of the Western Schism, a period of considerable turmoil for church operations and hierarchy, in which Avignon and Rome both lay claim to the Holy See. Several dates spanning the years 1370-85 are mentioned in the text, including references to bulls "dated at Avignon," which further indicate that the original register was begun prior to the end of the Avignon… Read more

Leipzig: Insel-Verlag, 1925-27. No. 270 OF 320 COPIES. 372 x 250 mm. (14 5/8 x 9 3/4"). 428, [1] (colophon) leaf. No. 270 OF 320 COPIES. Publisher's fine full cream-colored pigskin over bevelled boards, large raised double cords, spine panel with blind titling, double endbands in tan and olive green. With penwork initials in red and blue, including some large puzzle initials, and 137 FULL-PAGE COLOR MINIATURES. Mild soiling to pigskin, otherwise a very fine copy, pristine internally. An imposing and beautiful object, this is a very fine early facsimile of the most comprehensive collection of Middle High German poetry and ballads, with 137 miniatures depicting either the poets or scenes from their works. Also known as the "Great Heidelberg Book of Songs," the material in the original manuscript was compiled between 1300 and 1340 by Rüdiger Manesse of Zurich and his son. It contains almost 6,000 verses from 140 poets, arranged in order of rank, beginning with Holy Roman… Read more

Description:
New York: Kimmel & Foster, 1865. 140 x 203 mm. (5 1/2 x 8"). Attractively matted. Evidence of previous matting (faint brown line at bottom and along right, outside the image, where earlier mat must have been), otherwise fresh, clean, uncreased, and altogther fine. Looking at the island from a southern vantage point, this is a fascinating view of Manhattan and environs at the end of the Civil War, before the great bridges spanned the river. The surprisingly verdant Battery Park is in the foreground, with ships docked at the piers on the tip of the island. The river is swarming with boats, from three-masted tall ships to steamships and ferries--and more vessels are docked all around the edges of the island and across the river at the Brooklyn piers. The great bridges that will connect Manhattan with the outer boroughs have yet to be built, and the tallest structures in the city are the church steeples. In the far distance uptown, we can see the beginnings of Frederick Law Olmstead's Central Park.… Read more

Pleasing contemporary dark blue three-quarter morocco by Bickers & Son (stamp-signed on verso of front free endpaper), raised bands, spine gilt in single-ruled compartments, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Tiny chip to top of one spine, three joints with short cracks at head, minor dulling from leather preservative, first volume with hinge open at rear (but the volume quite sound), one leaf with older tissue paper repair to head-edge tear (into text, but legibility not lost), other trivial defects, but still quite an attractive set in excellent condition, clean and fresh internally, and in bright, solid bindings showing little wear. This is an appealing group of four scarce works, three of them first editions, by a father and son who also wrote novels, and brought the same engaging, readable style to their non-fiction.

Title page a little brittle due to quality of paper, moderate browning throughout and text occasionally a little lightened, a few negligible stains here and there, otherwise a very clean and legible copy of a scarce text. Written by a preacher and poet, this uncommon work advocates the best foods and practices to preserve one's health.

Originally published in Dutch in 1710, this work, appearing here in its first English version, is the detailed materia medica produced by physician and botanist Paul Hermann, professor of botany at Leyden and director of the extensive botanical garden there. Hermann begins by explaining how medicines work on the human body, then discusses the properties and applications of all medicines in current use. The work is divided into sections covering substances by type--roots, herbs, seeds, flowers, animal or mineral materials, etc. There are… Read more
