THESAURUS SACERDOTUM ET CLERICORUM / Editio Nova
Avenione (Avignon, France)., L. Chambeau 1727, hb. 16mo, pp. 390,index.
¶ Originally bound in full brown leather, with marbled endpapers. Our copy lacks the front board and the spine leather is mostly gone. The contents are intact, and a bit age-toned. Several pages were bound incorrectly, as a result the page edges have been unevenly trimmed, resulting in a loss of the margins. It appears a page may have been removed between the last page of the table of contents and the address to the reader; or it could also be a binding irregularity. A decent reference, or re-binding, copy, and priced accordingly.

[THE LONDON TIMES NEWSPAPER]
THE TIMES / ENGINEERING SUPPLEMENT
London, The Times Newspaper 1905 to 1906, hb. Folio size volume bound in 3/4 leather over dark "pebbled" cloth. folio
¶ This periodical, which began in 1904, was issued weekly with The Times newspaper. This offering begins with the first issue, No. 1, March 1, 1905 and concludes with No. 96, December 26, 1906. Each issue contains from six to twelve pages of detailed technical, industrial, and commercial information. There is a comprehensive Index for the period March 1, 1905 to Dec. 27, 1905, and another such Index for the full year of 1906. Such indices will be invaluable reference tools for scholars. Each issue normally contains a number of special articles, followed by Correspondence, Notes and Paragraphs, Letters to the Editor, a section on Railways, Industrial Notes, Reviews of Technical Books, and Minor Articles. Interesting topics include Submarines (three-part article), The Panama Canal, Telephones and Telegraphs: Developments in the U.S., The Electrification of London, etc. as well as many period advertisements. The text is printed on newsprint stock, which has now browned a bit. The binding of this large, heavy, volume has been allowed in the past to dry, and hence the front joint is partially cracked and the boards show wear to extremities. The binding is still quite dry and must be handled with care. However, the contents are clean and unmarked. Given the ephemeral nature of such publications, it is quite unusual to find such a complete run, and in such good condition (the binding notwithstanding). We would ask that, if a purchase is contemplated, you first enquire as to shipping costs and options for this heavy volume.

London, The Times Newspaper 1904 to 1906, hb. Folio size volume bound in 3/4 leather over dark "pebbled" cloth. folio An article in the Feb. 20, 1905, issue on "The Compulsory Working of Patents" has been attributed to Winston Churchill.
¶ This periodical, which began in 1904, was issued weekly with The Times newspaper. This offering begins with the first issue, No. 1, July 18, 1904 and concludes with No. 129, December 31, 1906. Each issue contains from six to twelve pages of detailed financial, banking, and commercial information. There is a comprehensive Index for the period July 18, 1904 to Dec. 25, 1905, and another such Index for the full year of 1906. Such indices will be invaluable reference tools for scholars. Each issue normally contains a leading article, followed by a number of special articles, and regular columns on the money market, the stock exchange, freights and shipping, and the commercial markets; as well as the stock and share list, and summaries of colonial foreign finance and trade (including Canada and the United States). Later issues contain The Times Financial and Business Directory, as well as many advertisments and Notices of share offerings and stock conversions. The text is printed on newsprint stock, which has now browned a bit. The binding of this large, heavy, volume has been allowed in the past to dry, and hence the spine has partially detached at the front joint. The binding is still quite dry and must be handled with care. However, the contents are clean and unmarked.

BURROWES, AMYAS DEANE
THE MODERN ENCYCLOPAEDIA; or Dictionary of Arts, Sciences, and Literature
London, Richards & Co. 1822, hb. Ill.: copper plate engravings. Thick 4to, pp. 802.
¶ Originally published as a set of ten volumes, the title page indicates that this is volume VII, covering topics from "liquor" to "mineralogy", but it appears to be more of a "dummy" or made-up copy, for the reasons which follow. Preceding the text are fourteen full page copper plate engravings, presumably to accompany the "C" volume, as they show the internal movement of clocks, techniques of carpentry, catarnet, centres, cerebrum, chemical apparatus, chymistry [sic], cinchona, and clitorismus (rather gruesome). Extensive articles in the text cover such topics as locks, logarithms (with an eighteen page table of logarithms from 1 to 1,000), logic (pp. 58 to 89), London (pp. 96 to 124 but not complete), [the pagination then skips from page 124 (London) to 273 (magnetism)], Mahomet and Mahometanism, mechanics (pp. 379 to 430), medicine (pp. 443 to 595), metallurgy (pp. 619 to 653), microscope (pp. 676 to 715), midwifery (pp. 717 to 759). There are, of course, many other shorter articles. There is some staining to the foredges, which has darkend the outer margins, but the text is generally quite clean. When we acquired this volume it was in the original printer's boards which were in very shabby condition, although the contents were in very good condition. We deemed it appropriate to have had it re-bound in plain cloth with a new spine label. Now in very nice condition - an unusual item.

¶ The Encyclopedie was a general encyclopedia published in Paris between 1751 and 1772, with later supplements, revised editions and translations. It had many writers, known as the "Encyclopedistes".

Our offering is the five volume condensed (not abridged) edition, bound in red buckram with gilt lettering and embellishments. Each volume measures 40 x 27 x 5.5 cms. The full text and images are reduced to four double-spread pages of the original appearing on one folio-sized page of this printing, similar to the condensed edition of the Oxford English Dictionary. Each volume contains between 1,150 and 1,500 pages, wuth illustrations. The boards of each volume show very slight shelf wear. The binding is strong, and the contents are pristine. A near fine set.
