Hardcover. 1st edition. Errata (2 lines) on p. [8]. 180 p. 17 cm. Bookplate on inside cover, Ex Libris. Contemporary cloth-backed boards. Binding a little loose. Light spotting, occasionally not so light. Covers a little rubbed. Antiquarian. The author specifically points out to the reader in his introduction that his narrative confines itself more especially to a consideration of natural objects, and the incidental events of travel. He sailed from New York for the Mediterranean, visiting Naples, Palermo, Syracuse, Malta, Messina, the Vulcanian Islands, before returning to Naples. He seems to studiously avoid what he terms artificial wonders. In the penultimate chaper he recounts the tale of an earlier visit to Scotland where he fell in company with another traveller obsessed with often macabre stories of people being buried alive. Some of these tales the author recounts in this chapter

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.
