Thesaurus Sacerdotum Et Clericorum / Editio Nova
Avenione (Avignon, France). L. Chambeau, 1727. Hardcover. pp. 390, index.16mo. 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. .

[ENCYCLOPAEDIA BRITANNICA]
The Encyclopaedia Britannica: Eleventh Edition / 29 Volumes + 3 Supplemental "12th Edition" Volumes A Dictionary of Arts, Sciences, Literature and General Information
Cambridge, UK, Cambridge University Press, 1910/1911 & 1922. 11th edition. Leather Bound. 4to. Sumptuously bound in limp burgundy leather with gilt lettering and decoration to front boards and spines. Decorated endpapers on 11th edition volumes; color maps, black and white illustrations and charts. Printed on "onionskin" paper with page edges in gilt. Overall very good, but individual volumes show minor defects. Most volumes show superifical creasing and minor sunning to spines, some show sporadic rubbing to boards, periodic light rippling to margins, tide marks to the bottom edges of volumes 4-7, previously existing repair to a map in Vol. 5, rear endpaper of Vol 1 is creased; contents clean and bright, bindings sound. Generally regarded as the finest edition of the Encylopedia Britannica, "the 11th" has maintained a loyal following due to it's impecable scholarship and enduring readability. With an authorship consisting of over 1,500 of the most prominent academics of the early 20th century, this set represents the intellectual unity that characterized the years prior to the first world war and still maintains it's lasting reputation over 100 years after it's original publication.

BURROWES, AMYAS DEANE
The Modern Encyclopaedia; or Dictionary of Arts, Sciences, and Literature
London, Richards & Co. 1822. Hardcover. pp. 802.Thick 4to,,,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. Ill.: copper plate engravings.

DIDEROT, DENIS; D'ALEMBERT, JEAN LE ROND (EDS.)
Encyclopedie, Ou Dictionnaire Raisonnè Des Sciences, Des Arts Et Des Metiers / Complete Set in Five Volumes
New York and Paris, Pergamon Press, 1969. Hardcover. Each volume measures 40 x 27 x 5.5 cms. Our offering is the five volume condensed (not abridged) edition, bound in red buckram with gilt lettering and embellishments. 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, with illustrations. The boards of each volume show very slight shelf wear. The binding is strong, and the contents are pristine. A near fine set. 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'. It was edited by Denis Diderot and, until 1759, co-edited by Jean le Rond d'Alembert. It was, and remains, a massive undertaking, normally found in 35 volumes.
