Item Description: Vols. I & II: John Noon, at the White-Hart, 1739. Vol. III: Thomas Longman, at the Ship, 1740, London, 1740. First Edition, complete with the rare third volume, uniformly bound in contemporary sprinkled calf, bordered with double fillets in gilt. Skilfully rebacked, 5 raised bands with gilt fleuron in the compartments, laiddown are the 19th-century double morocco spine labels. Octavo (19.3 cm x 12 cm), pp. Vol. I: [ii] - blank, title-page, [ii] - Advertisement, [iii] - Contents, [i] - Errata of Vol. I & II, 475, [1] - Publisher's Advert. With P1 cancelled and without the additional advertisements as usual.; Vol. II: [ii] - blank, title-page, [ii] - Contents, 318. M4v with the six-line footnote, and without the 4 publisher's adverts, as usual.; [ii] - blank, title-page, [ii] - Advertisement, [iii] - Contents, [i ] - Errata (A4v 14-lines), 310, F6v with four lines added at the end of the first paragraph. A remarkably clean and fresh copy throughout. Covers very lightly worn with a bit of wear to the corners and edges, 18th-century ink notes on the second initial blank in Vol. III, one line pointing out "Adam Smith anticipated." Preserved in a fine, sturdy, book-like clamshell box with 5 gilt-ruled faux raised bands on a black leather spine, covers and edges in dark grey cloth, colour reproduction of Hume's portrait by Allan Ramsay, mounted to cover of box. Hume's first major work which 'sums up a century of speculation on knowledge and of theological discussion' (Printing and the Mind of Man). The Treatise, begun when Hume was just 23 years old, is now regarded as one of the most important works in the history of Western Philosophy. Volumes I and II appeared at the end of January 1739, but the immediate reception was one of indifference. Discontented with Noon's conditions of sale for the first two volumes, Hume went to a different publisher,Thomas Longman, for the third volume which was published November 5, 1740. The Author's Advertisement states, ". tho' this be a third volume of the Treatise of Human Nature, yet 'tis in some measure independent of the other two, and requires not that the reader shou'd enter into all the abstract reasonings contain'd in them. I am hopeful it may be understood by ordinary readers, ." The first two volumes contain the vast metaphysical structure of Hume's work, whereas the third volume, on morals, contains more detailed observations of human behaviour. Due to the circumstances of publication, it is rare to find all three volumes together, and uniformly bound. Bookseller Inventory # 23468

Item Description: No Binding. Book Condition: Very Good. One page, 125 x 170 mm, verso of integral second page with an address panel in Hume's hand and the original wax seal, approx. 150 words in clearly legible brown ink, the paper professionally cleaned and backed with acid-free tissue, general condition very good. This letter to Madame Belot discusses her first French translation of 'The History of England under the House of Tudor' just prior to its date of publication. Not published in either 'The Letters of David Hume', ed. Greig (1932) or 'New Letters of David Hume', eds Klibansky and Mossner (1954). The body of the text reads: "You have prevented me in the Request I intended to propose, after our literary Connexions shall be over; Which, however, will not, I hope, be soon; I should be sorry to have had so much Acquaintance with a Person of your Merit; and not to continue, and rather to increase than diminish our Friendship. As Friday is the first day you can be at Leisure to see me, I shall wait upon you in the Afternoon, and bring with me all the Sheets corrected that you committed to me. The Corrections are few & not very material. If the Press come upon us too hastily in the first Volume, we can give the Printers these corrected Sheets of the second Volume, which will be food for them during some time". Antoine François Prévost was the first to undertake the French translation of Hume's historical works, but he died after completing only the House of Stuart section; this first appeared in three quarto volumes in 1760. The baton then passed to Madame Octavie Belot (née Guichard), who brought out translations of the Tudor and Plantagenet sections in 1763 and 1765 respectively. Madame Belot's translation work was much criticised as incompetent, but Hume evidently thought well of it. Only a week after writing the present letter, he wrote to William Robertson recommending her as a translator for his 'History of the Reign of Charles V': "she has a very easy natural style: sometimes she mistakes the sense; but I now correct her manuscript; and should be happy to render you the same service ." (1st Dec 1763, Letters of David Hume, J.Y.T. Greig, 2011 edition, Vol. 1, pp. 415-16). Hume addresses the letter c/o Président Jean-Baptiste François Durey de Meinières (1705–1785), influential member of the Parlement de Paris, who became Octavie Belot's second husband two years later.

Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 1st edition, 1st issue with L3 uncancelled;253 pp,3pp ads; 61/2 x 41/4 "; errata leaf is present; original boards, attractively and expertly rebacked, with newer pastedowns & endpapers, covers bordered with double gilt rulers, spine with raised bands, red morocco label: "Hume's Moral Essays", corners skillfully repaired; contemporary boards show some wear but are quite presentable; Hume, perhaps the greatest philosopher of the 18th century, considered this book to be "incomparably the best" of all of his writings. Hume's moral theory represents a transition between the moral sense doctrine of the Scottish school of common sense philosophy and the 19th century utilitarian thinkers. Hume's moral theory is in many ways parallel to his general epistomology in that he shows the limits of reason and that moral judgements are based on utility and habit and that morality is nothing more than aesthetic values. Hume also had a great influence on Kant and Nietzsche in the 19th century and Wittgenstein and the logical positivists of the 20th century; A sound, tight and sturdy copy of one of the great books of western philosophy, internally clean and well-preserved. Quite scarce. Bookseller Inventory # 2428

Item Description: ONT>, 1793. Hardcover. Book Condition: GOOD. First edition. The complete Bowyer's edition of David Hume's seminal work, The History of England, offered here in the publisher's original bindings. A rare example of this work as it was originally offered to its subscribers, inpaper and cardfolios at One Guinea each Number, to be paid for on delivery. These volumes often also contain loosely inserted notes to the subscribers from Bowyer, apologising for delays to publication or for a decreased number of plates in a previous instalment- the latter being blamed on thetardiness of the various engravers commissioned for the project. Indeed, their raw state offers a unique insight into the financial woes that plagued Bowyer during the publication of this work and his need to keep wealthy subscribers happy. As, in 1806 (the date given to the title pages provided in the final 'index' instalment),after Bowyer had published five large folios reaching the year 1688, 'the work was ceased and never fully completed, owing to the high costs involved, a loss of 30,000 said already to have been incurred. ' (ODNB)These interesting publisher's notes also explain the rather sporadic allocation of engraved plates per volume -which vary between 1 and 5 in each folio - with Bowyer frequently promising four or more plates in following instalments, as recompense for previous 'two plate' folios. However, all plates are present, totalling the required 196 plates, including the frontispiece portrait of Hume, engraved dedications and engraved full-page chapter headings:1-10: [3] 1-36, [3] 37-72, [3] 73-108, [2] 109-144, [3] 145-180, [2] 181-216, [3] 217-252, [2] 253-288, [3] 289-324, [2] 325-360. 11-20: [3] 361-396, [3] 397-432, [3] 433-468, [3] 469-504, [3] 505-540, [3] 541-576, [2] 577-612, [3] 613-648, [3] 649-684, [2] 685-720. 21-30: [4] 721-759, [3] 1-40, [3] 41-80, [3] 81-119,[3] 121-160, [3] 161-200, [3] 201-240, [3] 241-280, [3] 281-320, [3] 321-360. 31-40: [3] 361-400, [3] 401-440, [3] 441-476, [3] 477-512, [2] 513-548, [3] 549-584, [3] 585-620, [3] 621-656, [3] 657-692, [3] 693-728. 41-50: [3] 729-776, [3] 777-824, [3] 825-872, [3] 873-883/1-36, [3] 37-84, [3] 85-132, [3] 133-180, [3] 181-227, [2] 229-276, [3] 277-324. 51-60: [3] 325-372, [3] 373-420, [3] 421-468,[3] 469-528, [3] 529-588, [3] 589-672, [3] 673-756, [2] 757-821, [2] 1-64, [3] 65-128. 61-65: (bound in one) [12]129-648. 66-70: [2] 649-752, [1] 753-836/1-20, [5] 21-124, [3] 125-288, [4] 289-487. Index: Five title pages and 'A Life of Hume'. Included alongside the complete work are additional duplicate volumes of numbers 62, 63 and 64: [3] 233-336, [2] 337-440, [3] 441-544. An extraordinary compendium of British history and art, this work isfascinating in its original state. However its included title pages and the careful designation of individual volumes by the publisher (with splits between the five planned volumesindicated in folios 22, 44 and59) also offer a rare opportunity to bind this deservedly revered history in a fine and personal binding. First edition thus. Scarce. Condition: In publisher's original bindings with paper labels. Externally, worn. Many have entirely lost their backstrips, those with remaining paper show splits, tears and lifting to backstrips. Boards are rubbed and marked, although labels are generally intact and legible. Majority of joints are starting but most boards are held firmly. Exceptions are 50, 52, 66 and 67 which have either very tender or detached (but present)boards. Internally, generally firmly bound but tender in places - namely: volumes 61-65 and 68 in which the plates are loose but present. Volume 33 is bound in upside down. Some variedfoxing throughout, generally confined to first plate of each folio and the tissueguards, most of which are present. Some offsetting onto endpapers involumes 40-50. Text is generally very bright and clean, as are many of the otherplates. Overall: GOOD. Bookseller Inventory # 029967

Item Description: 1797. First Edition. HUME, David. Commentaries on the Law of Scotland Respecting the Description and Punishment of Crimes. Two Volumes. WITH: Commentaries on the Laws of Scotland Respecting Trial For Crimes. Two volumes. WITH: Supplemental Notes to Mr. Hume's Commentaries on the Law of Scotland Respecting Crimes. Edinburgh: Printed for Bell and Bradfute [and for E. Balfour for first two works], 1797, 1800, 1814. Five volumes altogether. Large quarto, contemporary full brown calf, raised bands, red and black morocco spine labels. $6500.First edition of Baron HumeÕs groundbreaking authoritative Commentaries on the Description and Punishment of Crimes, the Òstandard work on Scottish criminal lawÓ (DNB), together with first edition of his two-volume Commentaries on Trial for Crimes, and exceedingly scarce first edition of his Supplemental Notes. Rarely found together, a seminal five-volume work by the nephew of philosopher David Hume, laying Òthe foundations of our modern criminal law," uniformly bound in contemporary calf."A landmark event in Scottish legal history occurred in 1797 when Baron David HumeÉ published his Commentaries on the Law of Scotland Respecting the Description and Punishment of Crimes" (Hewitt, Symbolic Interactions, 1). A revered Professor of Scots Law at University of Edinburgh, with achievements that include his appointment as Baron of the Scots Exchequer in 1822, Baron Hume was "influenced by the views of his uncle, David Hume, the philosopher, with whom he had a close friendship. The elder had supervised his education" (Criminal Law, 47n). Baron Hume "laid the foundations of our modern criminal law" (British Justice, Hamlyn Lectures). This rare complete five-volume set of Commentaries, including the rarely found Supplemental Notes, provides "the classic statement of Scottish criminal law" (Kilday, Women and Violent Crime, 32). With this groundbreaking "standard work on Scottish criminal law" (DNB), Baron Hume "carried the torch into all the recesses of actual practice. He not only made himself familiar with all the scattered matter that had been published, though much of it lay hid in places not commonly explored; but he was the very first who went systematically to the records" (Edinburgh Review 83:197). To Sir Walter Scott, Baron Hume was "an architect É to the law of Scotland' (Scott on Himself, 42). Hume's lectures at the University of Edinburgh provided the basis of these works.To his contemporaries the Commentaries and Hume's authoritative research into "the rise and progress of this lawÉ will ever be held to communicate the most philosophical views of the criminal law in a popular and perspicuous manner" (Edinburgh Law Journal, I:485). Hume importantly highlights, as well, "the differences between Scottish and English laws, shaping the former into a symbol of cultural and national identityÉ for England's 'bloody code' of hundreds of offenses punishable by death did not extend to Scotland. The differences were celebrated in Hume's Commentaries" (Hewitt, 52, 44). "The first study of judicial decisions" in Scottish criminal law, Commentaries has been officially "afforded 'authoritative' status" (Gibb & Duff,Criminal Justice Systems, 7). Hume particularly focused on common law. Like "Blackstone and Bentham in England, Kames and Hume in Scotland were intensely engaged by the question of whether and how the common-law system of maintaining continuity through precedent, and of accommodating change through reinterpretation, could meet the demands of 18th- and early 19th-century BritainÉ As Farmer explains, 'The belief that the law matured in the late 18th century, taking the form of liberal and flexible principles [was] set out clearly for the first time by Hume. Hume affirms the sense that the past had been leading more progressively to a more enlightened presentÉ A lasting result of Hume's book and its outlookÉ. strongly implies the autonomy of criminal law from the rest of culture" (Bardsley, Belief and Beyond, 235-2.

"Soon after leaving Edinburgh University at the age of 15, [Hume (1711-1776)].embarked on a course of intense study of his own devising, which eventually led to the formulation of a complete philosophical system, published anonymously in 1739 as A Treatise of Human Nature. Hume was deeply disappointed at the reception of his revolutionary book.Blaming his own literary inexperience, Hume published anonymously in 1740 An Abstract of a Treatise of Human Nature and in 1748 and 1751 respectively Philosophical Essays concerning the Human Understanding and An Enquiry concerning the Principles of Morals. Philosophical Essays was retitled An Enquiry concerning the Human Understanding in a 1758 edition.In his advertisement to a later edition of the two Enquiries, Hume expressly desired that they and not the Treatise should be ‘regarded as containing his philosophical sentiments and principles.’ The Enquiries differ from the Treatise in style, in the omission of a number of elaborate psychological speculations, particularly concerning space, time, and sense perception, and in the inclusion of chapters on miracles, providence, and the theological implications of the free-will problem, all of which Hume had omitted from the Treatise because of their openly antireligious tendency" (The Encyclopedia of Philosophy). Hume wrote of the Enquiry: "of all my writings.incomparably the best. It came unnoticed and unobserved into the world" (Autobiography, p. 16, quoted in Rothschild). Jessop, p. 22. Rothschild 1174.

Item Description: Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. First edition, second issue, of the famous book usually known as 'the second Enquiry'. Essentially a reworking of Book III of the Treatise, 'Of Morals', Hume composed it during the two years that he spent mostly at his brother’s home at Ninewells, beginning in 1749. Both issues came out in late November 1751. Hume is often quoted as saying that 'of all my writings, historical, philosophical, or literary, [it is] incomparably the best' ('My Own Life'). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, with the half title, 12mo, [viii], 253, [3] pp., L3 a cancel, contemporary gilt-panelled calf, well rebacked and corners restored, B3 with a paper flaw, tiny stain in outer margin of last few leaves, no stamps or inscriptions, a very good copy.

Item Description: Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. First editions of the first four volumes (Chuo 47, 1-4), with the final two volumes in second edition (not in Chuo). 'Hume published his History in reverse chronological order, beginning with the Stuart monarchs (1754, 1757), moving to the House of Tudor (1759), and ending with the earlier periods (1762). The retrograde appearance of the volumes itself became a matter of discussion for several critics. Once finished, the volumes were republished as complete sets in the proper chronological order. Hume intended to continue his History past the period of the Restoration, but his plans were never fulfilled. He initially hesitated for fear that the "prejudices" against his former volumes had not yet subsided (Hume to Andrew Miller, January 14, 1765)' (James Fieser, Early Responses to Hume’s History of England, Thoemmes Press 2003, xiv). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 6 volumes, 4to, with the half titles, viii, 424; viii, 446, [1]; viii, 402; iv, 403-739, [1]; viii, 464; [ii], v, 457 pp., uniform contemporary calf with contrasting labels (numbered in chronological order rather than order of publication), title labels renewed, some scrapes to covers and wear at spine ends, front joint of first volume cracked but holding, some other joints beginning to split at ends, armorial bookplates of John White, occasional light browning and spotting, altogether a very good set.

David Humes Untersuchung über den menschlichen Verstand,: HUME, David

Item Description: Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. 1st Edition. First edition of Tennemann's translation of Hume's Enquiry. The first German translation of Hume's Enquiry concerning Human Understanding (by J.G. Sulzer) appeared in 1755 as Part Two of his Vermischte Schriften. This second translation is by Wilhelm Gottlieb Tenneman (1761-1819), author of the well known 10-volume history of philosophy. In his foreword Tennemann notes two reasons for the new translation: first, the centrality of Hume's philosophy in the Kantian revolution, and second, the many deficiencies of Sulzer's version. The book also has a fifty-page essay on scepticism by Kant's highly influential follower Karl Leonhard Reinhold: 'In fact it became customary during this time to speak of the Kant-Reinholdian philosophy' (Manfred Kuehn, Kant: a biography, CUP 2001, p. 351). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Small 8vo, xii, lii, 380 pp., contemporary speckled boards, rubbed and with wear particularly at one corner, two small faint pencil inscriptions on title-page, otherwise internally clean, uniform browning and occasional spots, no library stamps, a good copy.

An excellent copy of a scarce book, the author's first novel, and the introduction of his most famous detective Mick Cardby - regarded as the first true English take on the American 'hard-boiled' school; indeed, in an instance of narrative reflecting style, the plot concerns the curious presence of various American attributes on a corpse discovered in rural Warwickshire (the author had attended Warwick School). The dustjacket, designed by Pat Keely, is striking and most uncommon. Bookseller Inventory # 58786

Item Description: Paragon Press, London, 1994. No Binding. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. Other Men's Flowers is a portfolio of text-based prints by fifteen London artists curated by Joshua Compston (1970-96). It was printed by Thomas Shaw and Simon Redington and published by Charles Booth-Clibborn under his imprint, The Paragon Press. The title is taken from an anthology of wartime poetry compiled by Field-Marshal Viscount Wavell (published 1944) who had himself taken the phrase from a well-known quotation attributed to Montaigne: 'I have gathered a posie of other men's flowers and nothing but the thread which binds them is my own.' Each print (47 x 61 cm) is text-based and produced using mostly letterpress, but also screenprint, lithography and monotype on a variety of papers. The portfolio was produced in two slightly different editions. This copy (no. 66/100) is from the 'book' edition, of one hundred copies plus twenty artist's proofs, consisting of fifteen prints, three title pages and a colophon page signed by all the artists, presented in the publisher¿s box. (The other 'portfolio' edition of fifty, plus twenty artist's proofs, differs only in that the prints are individually signed). The three preliminary title pages were designed by Compston. The participating artists were: Henry Bond ; Stuart Brisley ; Don Brown ; Helen Chadwick ; Mat Collishaw ; Itai Doron ; Tracey Emin ; Angus Fairhurst ; Liam Gillick ; Andrew Herman ; Gary Hume ; Sarah Staton ; Sam Taylor-Wood ; Gavin Turk ; and Max Wigram. Reference: Paragon catalogue, Vol. I, p. 198. Photographs available on request. Signed by Artist. Bookseller Inventory # 004927
