Description:
Dublin: Printed by A. Rhames, printer to the Dublin Society, 1732. FIRST EDITION. 200 x 105 mm. (7 7/8 x 4 1/2"). 14 pp., [1] leaf (ads). FIRST EDITION. Recent retrospective panelled calf, raised bands, spine panels with gilt ornament, red morocco label. With frontispiece engraving of the saffron flower (crocus), its bud, and the bulb. Henrey II, 206; Hunt 488; ESTC T86873. Tiny wormhole to tail margins, a couple of small, faint spots to fore edge, but AN EXTREMELY FINE COPY, the text entirely clean, fresh, and especially bright, and in a new, sympathetic binding. This rare little account promoting the cultivation of the saffron crocus in England and Ireland seems to be the first separately published work in English entirely devoted to saffron. It is a condensed version of a paper Dr. James Douglas published in "Philosophical Transactions" in 1728, with added notes at the end by an Irish writer who claims that saffron grown in Ireland "is superior in every quality to that… Read more

New York: Éditions de la Maison Française, 1942. FIRST EDITION (preceeding the French edition). No. 431 OF 450 COPIES on Corsican paper (from a total edition of 526). 223 x 183 mm. (8 3/4 x 7 1/8"). 253, [1] (blank) pp. FIRST EDITION (preceeding the French edition). No. 431 OF 450 COPIES on Corsican paper (from a total edition of 526). Original tan printed paper wrappers, ENTIRELY UNOPENED. With a small leaf marked "431" in red loosely inserted. Wrapper edges and spine very lightly browned, lower wrapper slightly creased and with two small closed tears along fore edge, front hinge just starting but in no danger. An excellent copy, clean and fresh with only a few trivial internal blemishes. This is an unusually attractive, obviously unread copy of the true first edition (preceding the Paris printing by nine months) of Saint-Exupéry's account of his exploits when flying reconnaissance for the Armée de l'Air during the 1940 battle for France. Of his time as a pilot, Saint-Exupéry says that it… Read more

Paris: Chez la Veuve Pissot, 1736. FIRST EDITION. 165 x 102 mm. (6 1/2 x 4"). 4 p.l., 152 pp. FIRST EDITION. Slightly later marbled paper boards, flat spine, paper label, marbled endpapers. Woodcut headpieces, tailpieces, and large ornament on title page. Front pastedown with traces of bookplate. First blank with round, illegible institutional stamp. Marbled paper somewhat rubbed on lower edges and ends of spine, faint dampstaining in lower margin of first three gatherings (slightly frayed in the same spot on first few leaves), text a shade less than bright, but still an excellent copy, the binding solid and pleasing, and internally fresh and clean. Saint-Hyacinthe (1684-1746), born Hyacinthe Cordonnier, did not have a smooth ride in life. He joined the French cavalry, using the sobriquet of Chevalier de Thémiseul, but was captured by the Dutch, and his ardor for the military life was consequently dampened. Subsequently, he tested his mettle as a womanizer, but this resulted in his… Read more

Frankfurt, Liége, and Paris: Bassompierre, 1760, 1761, 1766. 185 x 98 mm. (6 1/2 x 3 3/4"). xviii, [2], 211 pp.; lvi, 401, [3] pp.; vii, [5], 201 pp. Three separately published works. First two works in contemporary marbled sheep, spines gilt in compartments (first work with inelegant repair to spine); the third work in half sheep over marbled boards. Front pastedowns with ex-libris of Daniel Berditchevsky. Short crack to tail of a couple of joints, boards with insignificant worming, extremities a little rubbed, but the bindings sound and not displeasing; excellent copies internally, clean and fresh with only minor imperfections. Intended to promote piety in an increasingly secular world, these works were written by a man deemed the "Enemy of the Philosophers" for his defense of traditional Christian spirituality against Enlightenment rationalism. Marquis Louis-Antoine Caraccioli (1719-1803) was born in Paris to a noble Neapolitan family and travelled the Continent trying a variety of careers,… Read more

In the words of DNB, from the time of its publication, this work "has been regarded, along with Boswell's 'Life of Johnson,' as one of the most important works in the history of biography."

Description:
London: George Routledge and Sons, [ca, 1875]. 260 x 178 mm. (10 1/4 x 7"). Two volumes. Edited by Charles Knight. Extremely pleasing contemporary light tan three-quarter calf, raised bands, spines elegantly gilt in compartments with lily cornerpieces sporting graceful curling foliage and a large central lozenge formed by botanical stamps, the whole accented by other small tools, two crimson morocco labels on each spine, marbled boards, edges, and endpapers With 340 text illustrations by Sir John Gilbert, A.

Two leaves with minor marginal ink stains, otherwise very fine internally, the text quite fresh, clean, and smooth.
