Item Description: John Baskerville, Birmingham, 1757. First edition of Baskerville's first ("perhaps finest") book, and certainly the most complicated bibliographically (see Gaskell for a 5-p. discussion); 4to, pp. [10], 432; contemporary full calf, elaborate gilt borders on covers, gilt-decorated spine in 7 compartments, red morocco label in 1, a.e.g.; some scuffing, but a near fine, large (11¼" tall) copy. Gaskell 1, noting that "900 copies were printed, at 1 guinea to subscribers; 200 of them were remaindered by 1762 at 14s." A second edition, virtually identical, was (surreptitiously?) printed by Baskerville ca. 1771, which is identified by the positioning of the letter J in Johannis in the imprint. The first edition, as here, has the J between the B and the I in Birminghamiae; in the second edition it is to the left of the B. Generally considered to be Baskerville's finest production.A penciled note on the flyleaf notes that this is the Earl of Hardwicke's copy, based on the contemporary shelfmark on the facing page. Among the subscribers is Ben Franklin of Philadelphia who took six copies. Bookseller Inventory # 48665

Item Description: John Baskerville 1757 [ie 1771?], Birmingham, 1757. Second edition of Baskerville's first ("perhaps finest") book; 4to, pp. [10], 432; contemporary full mottled calf neatly rebacked, preserving the old red morocco label on spine; a bit of spotting to the prelims, but a very good copy nonetheless. Among the subscribers is Ben Franklin of Philadelphia who took six copies. This second edition, virtually identical, was (surreptitiously?) printed by Baskerville ca. 1771, which is identified by the positioning of the letter J in Johannis in the imprint. The first edition has the J between the B and the I in Birminghamiae; in the second edition it is to the left of the B. Gaskell 2: "The second edition, unlike the first, is a rare book.".

Some foxing, marginal offset from binding to early and late leaves, small pinhole in folding frontis, one folding map has short tear at mounting tab, small chip at crown of one spine, narrow surface loss at top of one joint, a couple joints cracking (but sound). A good set, in handsome contemporary bindings (labeled "Martyn's Virgil. Vol. I [and] Vol II"). Second and third editions of Martin's heavily annotated translations, printed parallel with the Latin texts. Martyn (1699 - 1768) was a botanist of considerable accomplishment, with a substantial number of original and translated publications to his credit. "About 1737 Martyn received from Linnæus a copy of his ‘Flora Lapponica,’ published in that year, and thus began a correspondence between them. Reference is made to this work by Martyn in the first volume of the last great literary undertaking of his life, an edition, with translation and natural history notes, of the works of Virgil. Of this he published the ‘Georgicks’ in 1741, the astronomical matters being revised by his friend Edmund Halley, and the ‘Bucolicks’ in 1749; but only left some dissertations and notes on the ‘Æneid,’ which were issued posthumously" - DNB. The earlier and quarto editions often appear with a larger complement of plates, and with the plates colored. Bookseller Inventory # WRCLIT 53039

Item Description: Ex Officina Classica: Impensis W. Poyntell et Soc. [H. Maxwell, Printer], Philadelphia, 1804. xx, 608 pp. 8vo. First American edition. First American edition. xx, 608 pp. 8vo. A knowledge of the Classics was considered part of the foundation of a gentleman. Following the English traditional system of education, classics were studied to impart history, science, conduct, concept of government, law, and literary style, among other things. Many of the leaders of society were products of these schools and a "gentleman's" library of course contained the standard classics. Virgil was studied for proper conduct. A consortium of Philadelphia publishers, wishing to share the costs of publishing standard works with unusual expense or special requirements, formed the Classic Press. This press, under the direction of William Poyntell provided texts for students and teachers at affordable prices. The intention of the press was to publish all the Greek and Latin classics from the best editions, in their original languages and with excellent notes. Of this edition of Virgil the editors stated that they did not include the "Index Vocabulorum" for several reasons including the fact that it is often incorrect and that by not including it they were able to reduce the cost of the work to the purchaser. The first American translation and first printing of the original of Virgil's "Works" was published in 1796 by Leonard Worcester in Worcester with Caleb Alexander's translation. Shaw and Shoemaker 7657 citing three copies. For the Rome 1469 "Opera:" PMM 6 Modern calf-backed marbled boards, red morocco label. Some browning and spotting of text. Bookseller Inventory # 65011
