The paper is uniformly toned (as originally printed on sl.creamy paper?) and 2 marginal tears not touching any printed area. Slight offsetting from the plates onto the facing text page which is still quite legible and clean, and the edges are a bit rough-cut so that there is some outer edge flaking (less than 1/4" and never anywhere near the print). A very nice copy of this aquatint illustrated book of romantic ruins with trees & often people and carriages etc.

PEROTTI, NICCOLO (1429-1480)
CORNUCOPIAE sive Linguae Latinae Commentarii
Basel (Switzerland), Andream Cartandrum (ie Cratander) 1521 With Cratander's large colophon printer's mark at end & full page border of putti at play on the second titlepage. . Folio near-contemporary calf spine gilt on 5 raised bands (some minor repairs to spine and lower compartment split at lower hinge/2 leather holes repaired) LACKS leaves 1-8 (available in facsimile) including titlepage, preliminaries, & index up to "aricia" on leaf 9. Folios 9-79 + 1436 columns (ie 718pp 2 columns per page). Second titlepage at folio N1 precedes Sextus Pompeius Festus de Verborum Veterum Significatione, and Nonius Marcellius Compendiosa Doctrina ad Filium de Proprietate Sermonum. Some leaves with marginal damp mark never touching text & a few minor tears or paper faults & about 20 early paper repairs with a few obscuring text but mostly just marginal. One column has a few drops of candle wax. As expected from Cratander, the margins are wide and the nice italic type well centered but 2 pages are slightly over inked and thus have ink smudges. *An early edition of this humanist reference work printed in italic columns by the famous humanist printer Cratander when Basel was in the fore-front of such printing. These lexicographical studies on the first book of Martial’s Epigrams followed by similar works by other authors were a virtual encyclopedia of Latin words. It was completed by Perotti in 1478 and first printed after his death in 1489. One commentator calls it "a massive encyclopedia of the classical world. Every verse, indeed every word of Martial's text was a hook on which Perotti hung a densely woven tissue of linguistic, historical and cultural knowledge" (Brian W. Ogilvie, The Science of Describing: Natural History in Renaissance Europe, University of Chicago Press 2006, p118) (Wikipedia entry on Niccolo Perotti).

Else a very clean, crisp handsome copy. *A defence of Charles that was earlier included in the "Works of King Charles the Martyr" attributed to Charles but actually written by various royalists. This is the first separate edition. The often clandestine circulation of these works as well as the poor behaviour of the Parliamentary troops gradually swung the English people to a royalist revival (WING P1601).

London, Tim. Childe 2nd edition 1703 . Octavo panelled sprinkled calf on 4 raised bands with red gilt spine title label (rebacked but one cover now detached/top compartment of spine damaged/edges slightly worn) Titlepage +[14]pp Dedication & Preface +203pp +[8]pp index. The 4 contents leaves that presumably belonged at the front are misbound after page 194. Coat of arms book plate of G.W.F. Gregor on pastedown. Index and a few leaves with pale marginal damp mark but all leaves, clean, crisp & supple. *The author complains that the price of drugs has increased rapidly and without cause during his tenure at St. Barts. That there is mis-prescription and fashion in drugs when there are perfectly good remedies available for much less money. This was also a territorial dispute between physicians and apothecaries who, during the late 17th and early 18th centuries had encroached on doctor's rights to prescribing and making up of their own medicines. Practices at this time included feeding gold to animals so that patients should "benefit" from eating their flesh, of grinding up pearl into powders etc. A scarce book in any edition with the Wellcome collection holding this but of the copyright libraries only the British Library and Oxford listing this title.

Three books (all edited by David Powel) in one volume, octavo 156x103mm blind-ruled contemporary calf, spine on 4 raised bands (repaired with old leather laid on) dentelles gilt, [14] +284pp +[6]pp index & blank verso. Three title pages with same imprint dated 1585 but through paginated, blank leaf D6 missing between the end of the first book and the titlepage of the 2nd. First titlepage dusty and missing lower corner without loss of text (relaid on old paper), 3 other corners or margins with paper loss but no print affected, some damp tide marks but paper supple and strong, last 3 gatherings with a shallow crescent of paper loss to top margin sometimes affecting a letter or two of the running headline. Complete apart from the missing blank. Early ownership inscription Johannes Stafford on back of last printed leaf. *This collection of works on the history of Britain and on Wales was edited by the Welsh historian David Powel (c.1552-1598) - "In 1585 Powel published three books in a single volume: (1) the Historia Britannica of Ponticus Virunnius, a summary of Geoffrey of Monmouth; (2) the Itinerarium Cambriae and the Descriptio Cambriae of Giraldus Cambrensis — this is the first printed text of Giraldus, but Powel's patriotism prevailed over his historical conscience, and he left out Giraldus's unfavourable judgements upon the Welsh; (3) a letter, De Britannica Historia recte intelligenda" (Welsh Biography Online). The DNB notes that Powel dedicated the 1st book to Sir Henry Sidney, to whom he had recently become chaplain - the 2nd book is dedicated to Sir Philip Sidney. Text in Latin. One of the earliest published works on the history and topography of Wales.

PRECHAC,JEAN DE, (1647?-1720)
LA NOBLE VENITIENNE ou la Bassette Histoire Galante
London, Claude Barbin 1679 . 123x72mm covers (detached/leather v.worn) Titlepage + (12p) + 127pp Lacks last blank? Dated the same year also by this publisher appeared in Paris & our copy is "suivant la copie de Paris" but it has been reset as the Paris copy collates differently. Here chez Claude Barvin, au Palais, sur le second Perron de la Sainte Chapelle this was probably published to satisfy the trade around the court. This copy carries a crowned head watermark in the paper. * By the 1660's the multivolume novelles had fallen out of favor and Prechac was in the vanguard of the short petits romans. An interest in love, psychological analysis, moral dilemmas and social constraints permeates these shorter works. Prechec wrote several among them "L'Illustre Parisienne,histoire galante et véritable" (1679) "Voyage de Fontainebleau" (1678) and this, rather scarcer, work. Here the introduction explains how to play La Bassette, a card game which it seems was the newest rage and was played for money between a banker and several punters, the players winning or losing according as cards turned up match those already exposed. Needs a rebind, contents neat and tight.
