HAMMON,HENRY J.
ARCHITECTURAL ANTIQUITIES and present state of CROSBY PLACE,London as lately restored by John Davies esq.,Architect
London, For the author sold by Weale & Pickering 1844 Plates (15). . Folio green blindstamped and gilt lettered cloth (soiled worn and covers detached and lacking spine) 16pp +plates. Subscriber's list. *The house is mentioned in Shakespeare's Richard the Third, and the dramatist in fact lived near by. It was bought by Sir Thomas More although at the time of his martyrdom he had moved to Chelsea but later his relations William Roper and Rastell leased it. In later years it was used as a warehouse and the throne room became storage space. Some dusty fingering, some foxing & browning & even a few marginal tears but quite a scarce book and still tight and worthy of rebinding. Much research on the remnants of early traces and the Shakespeare connection make this a desirable and scarce item.

HARVEY, WILLIAM (1578-1657)
EXERCITATIONES DE GENERATIONE ANIMALIUM Quibus accedunt quaedam de partu de membranis ac humoribus uteri & de conceptione.
Amsterdam, J. Ravesteyn 1662 Engraved emblematic Titlepage. . Duodecimo original leather 4 raised bands, spine compartments gilt & gilt spine title (worn with lower half of top hinge split/hinges rubbed & some ends of hinge splits/tips worn/scuffed but quite sound & firm). Engraved titlepage +[26] +388pp +[3]pp index. Small archival repair to margin of TP (no involvement of print), ownership stamp (faint & hard to read) on pastedown and nice ownership inscription of an Avignon medical doctor dated 1676 on flyleaf. *Harvey's fundamental work on embryology and endocrinology which, if he had not discovered the circulation of the blood would alone have ensured his fame. All earlier theories of reproduction were based on Aristotelian and Galenic medicinal teaching but Harvey's researches on chicken and deer embryos proved to his satisfaction that semen fertilized the ovum and that spontaneous generation was without foundation. He also explained growth and differentiation of organs and opposed the doctrine of pre-formation. "The most important book on the subject to appear during the 17th century" (Garrison-Morton. Cf. Krivatsy 7661, Wellcome IV,98).

Geneva, Ch. Eggimann & Cie. 1894 35 full page chromolithographs including 2 full page frontispieces by D[avid] Estoppey (1862-1952), text includes some text illustrations. . Folio (435 x 325mm) beige cloth with large color & gilt illustration of bugler in mountain & lake scenery. Binding by Hug Frčres & Co. Zurich. Lower cover with remnants of corner ties on beige bevelled boards (covers with scratches & paint chipping/damage to lower part of spine but still handsome). Note the text and plates were never meant to be bound in - this was to be used as a portfolio (Mappe) in which to keep them, the inside spine is thus finished in beige cloth with pastedowns of silver & beige patterned with Swiss Crosses. 73 pages + 35 plates printed one side only but LACKING "Capitaine de Genie, Pontonnier" There are two pictorial titles one captioned in French (this creased & repaired) one in German (good condition). Text pages unsewn & on thin paper & uncut, someone has carelessly torn apart the conjoint edges often tearing into the margin of the attached page. The text has other tears & marginal losses, some with previous repairs, but no text is lost. Each fascicule covers one part of the army (cavalry, artillery etc.) it has 7 half title with the various different authors named. These sections unsewn with very wide margins - perhaps printed thus so that they could be cut down binding into a book of a smaller size to accompany the plates. Illustrations are on heavier paper with embossed texture on chromolith side, 325x208mm with captions in French & German below. *Fine plates by Estoppey: large & striking portraits including mounted figures, shown with field guns, velocipedes etc.

Marbled end-papers, [16]pp + 240pp (with pagination continuous) + [2]pp Contents, added leaf at end London 1809 printed for R. Tiphook giving List of Portraits and Places from whence taken. As in some library copies (e.g. those at Cambridge), two leaves of prelims (Post-Praefatio & Admonitio ad Lectorem) are here lacking, possibly to suppress controversial comments in their Latin text. Otherwise this copy is complete, with 240pp including brilliant impressions of all 64 portraits as listed in the Table and 3 other engravings, including the tomb of Queen Elizabeth I (which with 3 of the portraits are plates outside the collation). Pages slightly browned but all clean and crisp throughout. Light pencil notes on end-paper and at end explaining origin of the extra final leaf. *Finely bound copy of this splendid 1620 publication, as described in the DNB article on Henry Holland, whose "reputation as a bookseller was chiefly made by the issue of two elaborately illustrated antiquarian works ... [his] second and more famous illustrated publication appeared in 1620 in two folio volumes, the first dedicated to James I and the second to the universities of Cambridge and Oxford. Holland's letterpress is in Latin throughout ... The work opens with a portrait of Henry VIII, and closes with one of Thomas Holland (d. 1612). There are sixty-five portraits in all, and two engravings of monuments (of Prince Henry and Queen Elizabeth respectively).

London, R. Tayler by Amen-Corner 1692 . Quarto in later blue sugar-paper wrapper. Titlepage within ruled borders with Licensed page on back +[10]pp dedication +28pp. First and last leaf damaged and dust soiled. There is no loss of text but 1" of ruled framing lost and edges tatty with repairs on blank parts of versos. The last page with some ink spatters, one now making a 2mm hole with loss of 2 or three letters without loss of sense, another over part of a word. *A scarce pamphlet though not in good condition, in which Hollingworth defends the King's character, and includes an abridgement of Henderson's death-bed declaration, which the Dictionary of National Biography says seems to be authentic though immediately denounced as a forgery. However the interpretations & accretions seem to be later spurious. The reply to Bethel's pamplet "Ludlow no Liar" accused Hollingworth of misrepresenting the Ludlow case to substantiate his defence of Charles. Several pamphlets followed and this controversy, especially on the authorship of Eikon Basilike (which is also defended by Hollingworth, but most likely written by Gauden although it included the sentiments, and probably some actual writings, of the King) (WING H2500).
