Description:
London: J. Debrett, 1796. First Edition. 8vo. [10], 839 pp. Bound in contemporary quarter calf over marbled boards (leather very dry, front cover nearly detached but cords holding). Bookplate of the Fraser Institute, which sold more than 5000 books to Livresse (Gatineau, Quebec), from whom we purchased the present volume. Whereas the binding is worn, it is unsophisticated, and the text is generally without blemish. A fascinating moment in the history of Animal Welfare, which provoked a debate about the "worth" of dogs; the "meaning" of the relationship between dogs and humans; and whether or not owning a dog was a luxury of the rich or the right of all. This volume contains the original Parliamentary Debates for and against Britain's famous DOG TAX of 1796. While professing to control the dog population (and thereby reduce rabies, dog fighting, hunger of the constituents, and "damage" to livestock), the Bill was also designed to regulate owners of dogs, specifically the rural poor. The legislation… Read more

Description:
London: Society of Antiquaries of London (printed by William Boyer), 1756. Good. 4to. 242 x 186 mm. [1], A-B4, C3 = 12 ff. COMPLETE, in sympathetic marbled wrappers. A crisp and clean copy, textblock edges painted red, small chip along foreedge of final leaf not affecting text, inscription in pencil on title. A4 has the foreedge folded in with a reference written in ink: "v.app.Res.Honor. / de Richeu.p.238." A historic pamphlet, published in the midst of the antiquarian movement and accompanying rising interest in local history. First read at a meeting of the Society of Antiquaries of London on 18 December, 1755, the author, Philip Carteret Webb, was heavily involved in the 18th-century antiquarian movement. He became a member of the London Society of Antiquaries in 1747 as its lawyer, securing the incorporation of the Society in 1751 and putting it on level terms with the Royal Society, which many members saw as their arch-rival. As a collector, Webb purchased nearly one-third of the letters of… Read more

Description:
Vratislaviae (i.e. Wrocklaw, Poland): [Privately published by] J.D. Grueson, 1830. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. Very good. 4to. 58 pp. COMPLETE with 18 lithographic plates. Original nineteenth-century boards (corners and tail of spine bumped), printed label on upper cover. Some minor foxing. An unsophisticated and partially unread copy, with many gatherings unopened. Important and very early work on plant pollens by the brilliant Bohemian polymath Jan Evangelista Purkinje (1787-1869), illustrated with 18 full-page lithographs. According to DSB, Purkinje was inspired by his colleague A.W. Henschel, and "studied plant structures, mainly the elastic fibrous cells of the anthers and the form of the pollen and spores in relation to the mechanism of their dispersion. In his extensive comparative study, combining anatomy with physiology, he distinguished structural types, and drew attention to mechanical factors and the role of cells in the differentiation of plant tissues. His dynamic concept was recognized… Read more

Description:
Madrid: Antonio de Sancha, 1774. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. Very good. 8vo. (4 ff.), cxcviii pp. Bound in contemporary stiff vellum, evidence of two pair of ties. Text very crisp & clean. True first edition of this crucial work on bringing parity to the tradesmen in Spain, with particular emphasis in reforming the Spanish economy. Conde de Campomanes "probably influenced Spanish economic thought of his time more than any other writer" (La Force p. 156). The present work is described as: "one of the fundamental books of the Spanish Enlightenment" (Venturi, Italy and the Enlightenment. Studies in a Cosmopolitan Century, p. 274). Campomanes advocates household industry - mainly textiles - rather than large-scale industry, so that people will not have to move from small towns and farms. In order to spread the knowledge that would make such industry possible, he strongly advocates the formation of local economic societies. Campomanes analyzes the natural resources, existing industry, and available… Read more

Madrid: Antonio de Sancha, 1775. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. Very good. 8vo. [24], 475, [1] pp. Binding with minor rubbing (a few insignificant wormholes) but overall in excellent condition, the text very clean and crisp. Contemporary Spanish mottled sheep, smooth spine gilt, red morocco label, early paper shelf label at foot, marbled endpapers and edges. An extraordinary work on Spanish business development through education of artisans and craftsmen. The work deals with female labor, trades, apprenticeships, as well as provisions and funds for the disabled and old aged members of the working class. It also has a chapter about Spanish foreign trade, notably with the West Indies. Albert Boime gives an insightful overview of the Spanish government at the time: "Goya's print of the 'Crockery Vendor' celebrates the Spanish government's ideal of a prosperous and proud artisan class, enunciated in Campomanes's publications of 1774-1775, 'Discurso sobre el fomento de la industria popular and Discurso… Read more

Philadelphia: W. Horace Hoskins, 1897. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Very good copy in original brown pebbled cloth (slight wear at head and tail, corners a little bumped). xvii, [2], 18-419 pages. With 93 illustrations. Title-page with faint blemish, but the text is clean and unmarked, the binding sound and strong. Early ownership inscription on verso of final leaf: "Dr. E. Wainfor (?), Marion." First Edition in English - profusely illustrated throughout (some of the line drawings are highly curious). This is the finest copy of the 1897 First English Edition on the market. The translator, Alexander Glass, "instantly recognized its value as a text-book: every detail in the diseases of the dog being carefully considered, and the whole so admirably arranged that the student can readily find and study any subject in a clear and condensed form." This work went through four editions up to 1920. * INCLUDES: General examination, the skeleton, the mucous membranes and the skin, emphysema, Diseases… Read more
