Hardback. Published 1728 [1729]. Richard Mead, celebrated book-collector, classical scholar and student of Utrecht and Leyden became one of the outsanding physicians of his day. He provided the financial means for Samuel Buckley to prepare an extensive new edition, in seven volumes, of Jacques Auguste Thou's "Historiarum sui Temporis". In 1724 he purchased some papers originating in de Thou's archives from the historian, Thomas Carte, then a refugee in France. Mead paid Buckley to edit the papers and produce the work. The present pamphlet, to use modern terminology, is a progress report on the enterprise. A number of copies are recorded without the final leaf and are assumed to be complete as Buckley's signature dated 1 Jan 1728 appears at the foot of page 38. However, these two important final pages contain the text of his letter to Richard Mead of March 30th 1729. 1st Edition. pp40. Rebound in contemporary-style panelled-calf, with gilt lettering on the spine. A fine copy.

Hardback. Published 1734. 1st ed. 55pp. Scarce. Describing an episode in mid-15th century Scottish history. Norman MacDougall in his work, James III a political history (p. 289-291), suggests that the aim of this pamphlet was to criticize Sir Robert Walpole and his government, and can be interpreted as a covert attack on the current prime minister. There is a comma after "force" on p. 42, line 8. 1/2 leather over cloth, slightly rubbed. Remaining in v. good condition for its age
