Item Description: London; Printed for A. Millar; 1751;, 1751. Hardcover. 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: Very 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: London Printed for A. Millar, 1748. Rare First Edition of Hume's "An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding" HUME, David. Philosophical Essays Concerning Human Understanding. By the Author of the Essays Moral and Political. London: Printed for A. Millar, 1748. First edition. Twelvemo.(166 x 95 mm). iv; 256; [4, ad] pp. Contemporary brown calf, expertly rebacked to style, spine gilt-stamped with black and red morocco labels, marbled endpapers, all edges red. Some mild toning. Very good. Better known as An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding under which title the Philosophical Essays was reprinted in 1758, the book is a reworking of the first part of Hume's Treatise of Human Nature, with the addition of his notorious essay On Miracles, which denies that a miracle can be proved by any amount or kind of evidence. The Philosophical Essays Concerning Human Understanding is "an attempt to define the principles of human knowledge. It presents in logical form the significant questions about the nature of all reasoning in regard to matters of fact and experience, and it solves the problems by recourse to association." (Encyclopaedia Britannica). David Hume [1711-1776] "was an 18th-century British Empiricist philosopher, historian, economist, and essayist, who conceived of philosophy as the inductive, experimental science of human nature. Taking the scientific method of the British physicist Sir Isaac Newton as his model, Hume tried to describe how the mind works in acquiring what is called knowledge. He concluded that no theory of reality is possible; there can be no knowledge of anything beyond experience. Despite the enduring impact of his theory of knowledge, Hume seems to have considered himself chiefly as a moralist." (Encyclopaedia Britannica). Todd 1747 (2). Jesop, p. 19. Chuo 38.

Item Description: Hamilton Balfour and Neill & A Millar 1754--1762, Edinburgh & London, 1754. FIRST EDITION. A Complete First Edition Set of Hume's Six-Volume History of England. Bound in chronological order - rather than the order in which they were published. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.TITLES & PRINTING DATES:Volume 1: The History of England from the Invasion of Julius Caesar to the Accession of Henry VII [Hume's Vol. 1 - 1762]Volume 2: The History of England from the Invasion of Julius Caesar to the Accession of Henry VII [Hume's Vol. 2 - 1762]Volume 3: The History of England under the House of Tudor [Hume's Vol. 1 - 1759]Volume 4: The History of England under the House of Tudor [Hume's Vol. 2 - 1759]Volume 5: The History of Great Britain: The Reigns of James I and Charles I [Hume's Vol. 1 - 1754]Volume 6: The History of Great Britain: The Commonwealth and the Reigns of Charles II and James II [Hume's Vol. 2 - 1757]Hume's great History of England - the theme of which is liberty - concentrates on the development of English constitutional law from the Anglo-Saxon period to the Revolution of 1688. In Hume's lifetime, he was more famous as a historian than as a philosopher and this six-volume History of England continued to be a bestseller well into the nineteenth century and was the standard work on English history for many years.During the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745, Hume tutored the Marquise of Annandale (who was officially described as a "lunatic") This engagement ended in disarray after about a year, but it was then that Hume started his great historical work The History of Great Britain which would take him over fifteen years and run to more than a million words. In 1752, Hume was appointed librarian to the College of Advocates in Edinburgh. This provided him with tremendous resources and sufficient time and the opportunity to devote much of this time to the writing of this magnificent six-volume History of England. This work was not a new and independent interest of Hume's, rather, he saw it as a continuation of his other work, a "practical application" of his theses on politics. Beautiful contemporary full calf bindings. Each spine with five ribs and gilt lettering and volume numbers the second and third compartments. Front joints of Volumes 3 & 6 professionally reinforced. With the contemporary armorial bookplate of John Carre of Nisbet House, Berwickshire, Scotland in Volume 1 along with the bookplates of Lord Sinclair of Nisbet House and James Heron Watson in all six volumes. The only faults worthy of mention would be a 3" diagonal tear to the title page of Volume 3 and a wormhole to the rear three leaves of the same volume - not affecting the text. Overall, this is a truly beautiful set of books by the brilliant philosopher and popular historian, David Hume. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. Bookseller Inventory # 662

Item Description: Printed by William Bradford (1747), Philadelphia, 1747. First edition. 8vo. 158 pp. With a contemporary inscription "Hannah Richardson / her book the gift of / William Brown of Philadelphia" on the verso of the title page. Hume (1702-1774) was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina, among the well-to-do, but spent the last three decades of her life proselytizing as a Quaker, in Charleston, London, and Philadelphia, following her conversion from the Anglican Church in 1738. "Among Quaker women of her day, Sophia Hume had an extraordinary knowledge of arts, literature, and theology, to some extent the product of her years as an Anglican. Although conversion curbed and guided her intellectual pursuits within limits approved by Quakers, she yet found it hard to justify erudition by a woman, and harder to justify her public life, by her own principles. The result was a paradoxical career: as a minister and writer she upheld the traditional view that woman should lead a secluded life devoted to home and church, as a Quaker bluestocking she expounded scripture and culled quotations from ancient and modern Christian writers to defend her sect" (Notable American Women). Evans 5974. Sabin 33780. Brinley 3870. Turnbull I, p. 112. Persistent browning to text, top portion of rear endpaper torn away, but a very good copy in a nice example of a period binding.

"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: 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

Item Description: Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. First editions of the first four volumes (Chou 47, 1-4), with the final two volumes in second edition (not in Chou). ‘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, viii, 424, [92 index]; viii, 446, [1]; viii, 402; iv, 403-739, [1]; viii, 464; [ii], v, 457 pp., uniform contemporary half calf with contrasting labels (numbered in chronological order rather than order of publication), rubbed and scuffed, spine ends and corners worn, first volume with lower compartment of backstrip missing, all volumes with 'Ex Libris Alexander G.A. Mitchell Gaston' inscribed on front free endpaper, uniform light browning and occasional spots, otherwise clean, altogether a good set, scarce in any condition.
