ALEXANDRI AB ALEXANDRO
Genialium Dierum Libri Sex. Cum Integris Commentariis Andreae Tiraquelli, Dionysii Gothofredi, J.C. Christophori Coleri & Nic. Merceri. [Volume 2]
Lugduni Batavorum [Leiden], Ex Officina Hackiana. 1673. Vellum. Book, 8vo. (4 blank), (1 Frontispiece), (1 blank), 756, (124 Index) pp. Vellum. Volume Two [of two volumes] containing Liber Quintus (V), Liber Sextus (VI), and Index of this famous work by the Italian humanist, Alessandro Alessandri (1461-1523). Alessandri was a lawyer during the Renaissance who later distanced himself from his profession due to his disillusionment with governmental corruption, and turned to the study of the subjects of this work: philology, antiquities and folk law. With textual commentary by Andr Tiraqueau, Denis Godefroy, Christophorus Colerus and Nicolas Mercier. An excellent copy of the second volume.

 BARCLAY, EDGAR, Stonehenge and Its Earth-Works. With Plans and Illustrations
BARCLAY, EDGAR
Stonehenge and Its Earth-Works. With Plans and Illustrations
London, D. Nutt. 1895, First Edition. Cloth. Ill.: Barclay, Edgar; Various. Book, 4to. (1 plate) xi, (1 plate) 152 (3 folding plans) pp. Maroon cloth with gilt to spine; top-edge gilt; edges uncut. Neat ownership names. Frontispiece with tissue-guard. An excellent example of this scarce detailed study of Stonehenge, including (folding) plans and illustrations. Edgar Barclay was a distinguished and prolific painter and etcher, and a member both of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers, and of the Royal Institute of Oil-Painters. Moreover he was also an accomplished archaeologist and prehistorian, and his lifelong interest in Stonehenge resulted ultimately in this publication, having already addressed the British Archaeological Association in June 1893. Illustrated throughout and includes thirteen collotypes by Barclay himself. Woodcut initials to each chapter. Very Good.
