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: 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: 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 Hume’s groundbreaking authoritative Commentaries on the Description and Punishment of Crimes, the "standard work on Scottish criminal law" (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 "the foundations of our modern criminal law," uniformly bound in contemporary calf."A landmark event in Scottish legal history occurred in 1797 when Baron David Hume 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 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 law 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 identity 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 Britain 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 present A lasting result of Hume's book and its outlook . strongly implies the autonomy of criminal law from the rest of culture" (Bardsley, Belief and Beyond, 235-239).

Item Description: Amsterdam: Chez J. Schreuder & Pierre Mortier le Jeune, 1754-57, 1754. 5 volumes, octavo (150 x 92 mm). Late 19th century ribbed cloth and marbled boards, cloth tips, spines lettered gilt, sprinkled edges. Margins trimmed fairly close, occasional light spotting and a few pencil marginalia; a very good set. Titles printed in red and black, with engraved vignette, woodcut head and tail pieces and initials. Ownership inscription U. Celsing (slightly trimmed) at foot of first title. First edition of this important series of economic publications, published in view of the increasing interest in works of political economy appearing in France, England, and Holland. In 1754 Schreuder and Mortier published the first volume, Hume's Political Discourses. Owing to the growing interest and the relative scarcity of earlier publications, the publishers decided to continue the series, issuing each volume with two title-pages, one a general title-page to the series Discours politiques, the other a title-page for the first work of the relevant volume. A sixth volume was published in 1758, rarely found with the set, without a general title-page, but the preface to that volume clearly shows that volume to be an addition to the series in the view of the publishers. Details of the collection are as follows: Volume I: HUME, David. Discours politiques de Mr. David Hume. Amsterdam, 1754. Volume II: O'HEGUERTY, Comte de Magnières. Essai sur les Intérêts du Commerce maritime. FORBONNAIS, François Véron de. Considérations sur les finances d'Espagne. FORBONNAIS, François Véron de. Réflexions sur la nécessité de comprendre l'étude du commerce et des finances dans celle de la politique. BOLINGBROKE, Lord. Réflexions politiques sur l'état present de l'Angleterre, principalement à l'égard de ses taxes et de ses dettes, et sur leurs causes et leurs conséquences. LE BLANC. Ouvrages sur le commerce, les finances, etc., qui ont paru depuis deux à trois ans. Amsterdam, 1756. Volume III: DISCOURS prononcés au parlement d'Angleterre, dans la chambre des pairs, pour et contre la liberté du commerce au Levant, avec le bill, ou loi intervenue à ce sujet. CANTILLON, Richard. Essai sur la nature du commerce en général. Amsterdam, 1756. Volumes IV and V: GOUDAR, Ange. Les Intérêts de la France mal entendus dans la branche de l'agriculture. Amsterdam, 1757. Takumi Tsuda, in his Cantillon, Essai de la Nature du Commerce en général, (1979), stresses the rarity of these volumes: "Les Discours politiques édités par Mauvillon sont devenus si rares aujourd'hui, que les renseignements sur cette collection sont souvent confus et contradictoires". He gives a detailed list of the collection (pp. 417-8), and a list of locations of various volumes. The British Library has only the first five volumes; interestingly, it was this edition of Cantillon that Karl Marx read while researchjing in the British Museum for Das Kapital.

Item Description: 1757. First Edition. HUME, David. Four Dissertations. I. The Natural History of Religion. II. Of the Passions. III. Of Tragedy. IV. Of the Standard of Taste. London: Printed for A. Millar, 1757. 12mo, contemporary full brown speckled calf gilt sympathetically rebacked, raised bands, red morocco spine label. $3800.First edition of this collection of four essays, including the first appearance of Hume’s Natural History of Religion, with scarce half title and dedication pages present.This classic volume includes the first appearance in print of Hume’s important The Natural History of Religion and his only works in the field of aesthetics, Of Tragedy and Of the Standard of Taste. "In The Natural History of Religion, Hume maintained that there is no evidence of any specific instinct for religious belief. Some races have no religion. In all known cases the earliest religions were polytheistic and idolatrous, with no notion whatever of an intelligent cause of the whole frame of nature. They were as truly atheistic as would be the beliefs of a contemporary person who acknowledged the existence of elves and fairies but denied the existence of God" (Encyclopedia of Philosophy), an argument which lead to Hume himself being accused of atheism. "After publication Hume withdrew the dedication ‘To the Reverend Mr. Hume, Author of Douglas, a Tragedy,’ but cancelled the withdrawal four days later, 800 copies having been sold without it. He never reprinted it The fourth ‘Dissertation’ originally proposed by Hume was to have been Some Considerations previous to Geometry and Natural Philosophy; this he withdrew and substituted two, Of Suicide and Of the Immortality of the Soul. These two reached the proof stage before being withdrawn and replaced by Of the Standard of Taste" (Rothschild 1176). First edition, early state, with cancel leaves C12 and D1, as in all copies (Todd, 200); with uncorrected "ative" as the first word on page 9 and corrected "lancing" as the first word on page 131. With half title and scarce dedication pages. Fly title to the first dissertation bound after the title page. Jessop, 33-5. Todd, 200. Rothschild 1176. Early owner signature to title page.Occasional scattered light foxing to interior; expected age wear to contemporary calf boards. A handsome copy of this landmark philosophical work.

Item Description: London: for A. Millar, 1751, 1751. Duodecimo (162 x 96 mm). Contemporary calf, rebacked, double gilt rule border to covers, spine ruled gilt in compartments, red morocco label, sprinkled edges, new endpapers. Corners lightly rubbed. Contents and errata leaves trimmed slightly shorter, errata corrected in a contemporary hand; a very good copy. Contemporary bookplate of Thomas Philip Earl de Grey of Wrest Park. With half-title, errata and final advert leaf, leaf L3 in cancelled state. First Edition, second issue with the additional paragraph at the end of Appendix II, of Hume's seminal essay, a reworking of part III of his Treatise of Human Nature. "No work, it seems, gave Hume himself more pleasure: 'in my own opinion (who ought not to judge on that subject), [it] is of all my writings, historical, philosophical, or literary, incomparably the best' ('My own life', in Essays, xxxvi). Instead of abridging the Treatise, he redesigned his treatment of morals to concentrate on the virtues of benevolence and justice, and on the argument that the standard of moral judgement is to be found in the principles of utility and agreeableness" (ODNB). Jessop, p. 22; Todd, pp. 193–4 (b). Bookseller Inventory # 111393

Item Description: London: for A. Millar, 1757, 1757. Duodecimo (159 × 98 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, red morocco label, double gilt rules, small gilt centre ornaments to spine. Housed in a burgundy flat back cloth solander box. A little neat restoration to spine ends, few stains to front cover, endleaves tanned at margin from turn-ins, but a very good copy. Ownership inscriptions on front free endpaper and pastedown: William Nasmith, London, 19 March 1757; indecipherable initials, dated 6 June 1867; Tet Htoot [Burmese historian] from R. C. Trevelyan [English poet and translator], Christmas 1941. First edition, with the half-title and the dedication, the first word on p. 9 is "ative" instead of the corrected "lative"; the other typographical error on p. 131 is corrected to "lancing". Cancels C12 and D1 and the omission of K5-K8 agree with the description of Todd, p. 200. These essays were offered by Hume to his publisher in June 1755 for 50 guineas. For a full account of the publishing history, with the suppression of one essay, its initial replacement with two alternative ones, which were then in turn replaced by an entirely new one, see Jessop, pages 33-35.

Item Description: London: no printer, 1788, 1788. 7 volumes bound in 5, octavo (160 x 98 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, triple rule gilt border to covers, spines elaborately decorated gilt, red and green morocco labels, edges stained yellow. Neat repair to head of spine of volume one, small chip at foot, very occasional light spotting, one leaf with short closed tear; a very attractive set. Titles printed in red and black, woodcut vignette chapter openings and endings. Third, enlarged edition of the second French collected works of Hume, first published in 1759-64; this is the most complete edition, which includes Hume's writings on economics. "The contents are differently ordered and vol. 7 . is an addition, containing seven of the Political Discourses of 1752 trans[lated] by Mlle. de la Chaux" in 1767 (Jessop). The other volumes contain the Treatise concerning Human Understanding (vol. I-II), Four Dissertations (vol. II), Dialogues concerning Natural Religion (vol. III), the essays on the passions, tragedy, and taste (vol. IV), Enquiry concerning the Principles of Morals (vol. V), and Essays Moral and Political (vol. VI). The first collected edition in French was published in five volumes in 1758-60 (it was preceded by a German edition in four volumes in 1754-6; the first collected works in English, Hume's own edition, had appeared in 1753-6). Hume's works were quickly translated into French, reflecting the high regard in which he was held by a considerable number of French philosophes. Early enthusiasm more generally in France for Hume's writings had rested on his political and ethical thought (and later the History); the Political Discourses (1752) were acknowledged in the Bibliotèque raisonnée to be "greatly esteemed", and received two editions in French in 1754. But the irreligious tendency of his philosophical scepticism greatly affected Hume's reception in France, and even restricted scope for publication there. By 1761, all his works were included in the Index librorum prohibitorum. See Mossner, Life, p. 225ff. Chuo 29; Jessop, p. 11. Bookseller Inventory # 113403

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
