BOYLE, CHARLES (1676-1731) [LATER EARL OF ORRERY]
DR BENTLEY'S DISSERTATIONS ON THE EPISTLES OF PHALARIS AND THE FABLES OF AESOP EXAMIN'D By The Honourable Charles Boyle, Esq.
London, Tho. Bennet at the Half-Moon 1698 . Octavo contemporary tan roan spine and lower cover (lacks front cover, leather worn). Titlepage +[6]pp preface +290pp with errata below the "Finis". Side notes in Latin & Greek often long enough to require incursion into the text, also some footnotes. Small blind stamped coat of arms on flyleaf with initials RB K.C. Cambridge and faint name F. Creswell. Titlepage & preface bit dusty & fingered, text on better, whiter paper is clean & crisp throughout (WING O469). *A manuscript of the Letters supposedly by Phalaris (of Sicily 570-554 B.C.) was in the care of Dr. Bentley as King's librarian. Boyle complained in his 1695 Oxford edition that Bentley was unhelpful in not giving enough time for the collation he needed. Two years later Bentley replied to this criticism in an essay which said that the Letters were a clumsy forgery by a Greek rhetorician. This book is the patrician Boyle's elaborate reply, produced with the aid of several Oxford scholars. Bentley then won the argument in a splendid scholarly work, but the controversy was justly famous and celebrated in Swift's "Battle of the Books" published in 1704 (see DNB articles on Bentley and Boyle).

Amsterdam, Daniel Elzevir 1667 Elzevir Printer's mark to Titlepage. . Duodecimo 18th century roan spined marbled boards (upper hinge repaired/head of spine chipped/tips worn) All edges rouged. Titlepage +[6] +424pp *Coat of arms bookplate & location on front end-paper otherwise completely unmarked crisp copy. The only Elzevir edition. *These essays are the first edition of Boyle's work in Latin to be printed on the continent. Physiologica in this sense included discourses on physics, chemistry, meteorology, medicine & related subjects as well as observations that we would still classify as physiology [eg dog's digestive system]. There are accounts of purely chemical research. According to Fulton "the importance of this work lies in the fact that in a very real sense it was a prologue to the Sceptical Chymist since it continued the attack on the alchemists began in New experiments, and actually it was as much of a landmark in the history of chemistry" [as those other works]. It gives the first clear outline of his corpuscular theory of the nature of matter (Fulton 29, Wellcome I 221, Garrison & Morton).

First titlepage cropped at foot affecting the date which has been written in above; 2nd titlepage better centered and complete with all publisher's details and date 1644. Ownership E.W. Sergeant to blank area of first title, the folding plates are remargined to outer edge, paper slightly browned & some pages faintly dampmarked, but supple and strong without any tears or writing. Printed side notes and pointing hands are all complete with a margin. Both first editions published by Harper but sold by different booksellers thus there is probably no precedence. *The author was a medical doctor and writer. This is the first book specifically dealing with sign language and with gesture illustrations. Bulwer was intereted in schooling for the deaf and suggests that manual alphabets could be "ordered to serve for privy ciphers for any secret intimation" (Chironomia, p149). Chirologia shows examples of manual gestures, their meanings and their uses drawing on a wide range of sources from literature, religion and Medicine. Chironomia, which the author considered as a separate work, was the result (Wing B5462A & B5467 ESTC r14061, Garrison & Morton 3346-7).
