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

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:
London: Printed for W. Strahan et al., 1770. Eighth Edition. 173 x 103 mm. (7 x 4 1/4"). Two volumes. Eighth Edition. Contemporary marbled calf, thick gilt rule on covers, simple gilt rules and volume numbers on spine Frontispiece in each volume. Very minor wear to joints and extremities, superficial crackling to spines, but A REMARKABLY FINE COPY INSIDE AND OUT. Perhaps the first truly autobiographical novel in English, this picaresque narrative involves its hero in a wide variety of harrowing episodes that range from farcical to terrifying. Except for some good-natured English seamen, these episodes are populated almost entirely by brutal, coarse, and selfish monsters. This was Smollett's first novel, the book that made his name, and the work that usually conveys the author's identity on the title pages of subsequent novels, written "by the author of Roderick Random." A man of many abilities and considerable experience, Smollett (1721-71) made major contributions as an historian, critic,… Read more
