Contemporary VELLUM BINDING, blind-stamped design and framing on the front and rear covers, 5 raised spine bands, handwritten title on spine, 8" x 10". Pagination: [140] prelim pages including life of George Buchanan, 732 Text, [96] Index, [6] prelims to JURE REGNI Apud Scotos, 116 Text. Illustrated with an engraved frontispiece and a fold-open chart. CONDITION: The Vellum covers are split at the folds but holding well with the five cord bindings; the vellum from the top spine compartment has broken off (i.e. is missing), there is an edge piece of vellum missing from the second compartment (the compartment with the hand-written title) that partially affects one letter, and there is some cracking to the spine vellum; the front and rear vellum covers have some soiling, age toning, and spotting; overall the vellum covers show wear, but are still quite attractive in a Harry Potter Hogwarts Library sort of way. Internally very nice, some age foxing, corner creasing, toning and soiling here and there throughout, but overall the inner pages are complete, tight, bright, clean and unmarked. A quite impressive copy. An Important 289 year-old book by an Renowned SCOTTISH Writer and Scholar. With its vellum binding, the book looks impressive on and off the shelf. A snippet about GEORGE BUCHANAN (from a much longer Wikipedia article): ******George Buchanan (February 1506 - 28 September 1582) was a Scottish historian and humanist scholar. Brown says that Buchanan was "the most profound intellectual sixteenth century Scotland produced." His ideology of resistance to royal usurpation gained widespread acceptance during the Scottish Reformation. Brown says the ease with which King James VII was deposed in 1689 shows the power of Buchananite ideas.******

About BARTHOLOMEW MASTRIUS (from Wikipedia): ******Bartholomew Mastrius (Bartholomaeus, Bartolomeo Mastri) (b.1602 in Meldola, d.1673 in Meldola) was an Italian Conventual Franciscan philosopher and theologian. He acquired a profound knowledge of scholastic philosophy and theology, being deeply versed in the writings of Duns Scotus. As a controversialist he was harsh and arrogant towards his opponents, mingling invective with his arguments. His opinions on some philosophical questions were fiercely disputed by many of his contemporaries and especially by Matthew Ferchi and the Irish Franciscan John Punch. He was one of the most prominent writers of his time on philosophy and theology. His works shed light on some of the difficult questions in Scotistic philosophy and theology.****** INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: This 4 volume set is large and very heavy and will require substantial additional shipping charges.

SCARCE 1740 BOOK by SCALIGER with Two Interesting BOOKPLATES. About JOSEPH JUSTUS SCALIGER (excerpted from Wikipedia): ******Joseph Justus Scaliger, b. 1540 d. 1609, was a French religious leader and scholar, known for expanding the notion of classical history from Greek and ancient Roman history to include Persian, Babylonian, Jewish and ancient Egyptian history. He spent the last sixteen years of his life in the Netherlands. During the first seven years of his residence at Leiden his reputation was at its highest point. His literary judgement was unquestioned. From his throne at Leiden he ruled the learned world; a word from him could make or mar a rising reputation. At the same time, Scaliger had made numerous enemies. He hated ignorance, but he hated still more half-learning, and most of all dishonesty in argument or in quotation. He had no toleration for the disingenuous argument and the misstatements of facts of those who wrote to support a theory or to defend an unsound cause. His pungent sarcasm soon reached the ears of the persons who were its object, and his pen was not less bitter than his tongue. He was conscious of his power, and not always sufficiently cautious or sufficiently gentle in its exercise. He made many enemies. The results of his method of historical criticism threatened the Catholic controversialists and the authenticity of many of the documents on which they relied. The Jesuits, who aspired to be the source of all scholarship and criticism, saw the writings and authority of Scaliger as a formidable barrier to their claims. Scaliger was known to be an irreconcilable Protestant and as long as his intellectual supremacy was unquestioned, the Protestants had the advantage in learning and scholarship. His enemies therefore aimed to attack him as a man and to destroy his reputation. This was no easy task, for his moral character was high. Nonetheless, in 1607 the Jesuits successfully attacked Scaliger by publishing a 400 page tome that purportedly exposed 500 lies in Scaliger's works. This was said to have broken Scaliger's spirit, and two years later he died.******

SCARCE 1747 TWO VOLUME SET on LAW by the highly influential BOHMER. These tomes would look great on the SHELF of any LAWYER or LEGAL SCHOLAR, or in the bookcase of anyone who appreciates rare, interesting old books! About JUSTUS HENNING BÖHMER (from Wikipedia): ******Justus Henning Böhmer (b. 1674 in Hanover, d. 1749 in Halle) was an outstanding German jurist, ecclesiastical jurist, Professor of the University of Halle; and also Geheimer Rat, Count Palatine and Chancellor of the Duchy of Magdeburg. In the judicial field initially he was a protectionist of the existing "territorial system" or Erastian theory of ecclesiastical government, but in the following years he tended towards the natural right and "Kollegialismus". In his first great work, "Jus Ecclesiasticum Protestantiun" he drew on the traditional Canon Law, but he reformed the law so that it was exempted from rigid orthodoxy, principles, resistance and dogmatism. Affected by the ideas of the Age of Enlightenment he represented an increasing critical and scientific development instead of a religious fundamentalism. Böhmer's legal thinking predominated in Protestantism church law of the 18th century, and was the basis for numerous church reforms yet to be. His results in the domain of civil law were of similar importance. In his next main work "Introductio in Jus Digestorum", a pandects-compendium which was maintained until the 20th century, he liberated the traditional German law from the influence of the old Roman law and thus prepared the basis of "general Landrecht (law code) of the Prussian states". A huge amount of further significant and notable works on civil and church law as well as expertises were penned by him, and were published by his son Georg Ludwig Böhmer after Justus Henning's death in the collected edition "Exercitationes ad Pandectas".****** INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: These two large books are heavy and will require substantial additional shipping charges.

Illustrated with one folding plate, engravings on the title page of each issue, and tail pieces.

    The Hamburgisches Magazin was a scientific journal containing essays, letters to the editor, etc., on the natural and physical sciences, often highlighting work from foreign scientists translated into German.

    GREAT ASSOCIATION COPY. There is an OWNERSHIP BOOKPLATE of JOHANN FRIEDRICH BLUMENBACH, b.1752 d. 1840, on the front pastedown. Blumenbach was one of Germany's most important and influential early anthropologists. The bookplate has his PRINTED SIGNATURE on its face. I feel the Signature is PRINTED even though others claim it is HAND SIGNED / AUTOGRAPH. The two copies I found online, one held by a noted HISTORY OF SCIENCE bookseller and another held by the important Herzog August Bibliothek (Herzog August Library), claim that the signature on Blumenbach's bookplates is HAND SIGNED. However, the signatures on both the examples presented online, and mine, are EXACT in even the minutest details, and convince me that this is a printed signature. I have seen his signature on documents in the past and, like all signatures, they all had noticeable, even if sometimes small, deviations. These three examples have none that I can detect. A RARE BOOKPLATE and IMPORTANT ASSOCIATION COPY.

    GOOD MINUS CONDITION: The front cover is detached but present, the rear cover is just holding on with the cord bindings, the leather spine title labels are missing and the spine gilt has substantially worn off, the leather covered boards are rubbed and scraped, the gilt coat-of-arms on the front and rear covers is bright but scratched and rubbed; the marbling on the top edges has faded away but is visible on the front and bottom page edges; internally, there is light browning and spotting throughout but the text is always clear and fully legible, overall the pages remain tightly bound, clean and unmarked. A complete, presentable copy with a detached front cover.

    This publication is often found disbound with the various articles sold separately. It is hard to find a complete volume (i.e. 6 bound issues).

    RARE with the ownership bookplate of the great natural scientist Johann Friedrich Blumenbach.

    About JOHANN FRIEDRICH BLUMENBACH (from Wikipedia):

    ******Johann Friedrich Blumenbach, b.1752 d.1840, was a German physician, naturalist, physiologist, and anthropologist. He is considered to be a main founder of zoology and anthropology as comparative, scientific disciplines. He was also important as a race theorist.

    He was one of the first to explore the study of the human being as an aspect of natural history. His teachings in comparative anatomy were applied to his classification of human races, of which he claimed there were five, Caucasian, Mongolian, Malayan, Ethiopian, and American. He was a member of what modern historians call the Göttingen School of History.

    Blumenbach's contemporaries considered him one of the great theorists of his day and a leading light of German science. Kant and Friedrich Schelling both called him "one of the most profound biological theorists of the modern era". In the words of science historian Peter Watson, "roughly half the German biologists during the early nineteenth century studied under him or were greatly influenced by him".******

    CONDITION: The covers are worn, scuffed, scraped and with light stains to the spine; the front cover is disbound as is the front free endpaper and the half title page; the rear cover is just hanging on with the binding cords. Internally, there is foxing to the first and last few pages, and a bit here and there; the last few pages have shorelining at the bottom gutter area not affecting text, the last page is age toned, the half title page is loose, is creased, and is worn at the disbound edge but it is present and still solid; overall the inner pages are very nice, bright, clean, clear and unmarked. The map and 10 plates are all in amazingly good condition, sturdy and feel rarely opened, they have some offsetting and age toning, and a few have a small tear to the edge of a bottom fold where the plate is bound in, but that is it, no significant tears and all are bright, clean and clear.

    About the HERCLEAN TABLETS (from Wikipedia):

    ******The Heraclean Tablets (in older texts: the Heraclean Table(s); in Latin: Tabulae Heracleenses) were bronze tablets found a short distance from the site of Heraclea Lucania, between it and Metapontum. They are significant for the study of Roman Law.

    As a consequence of its having accepted Roman citizenship in 89 BCE, Heraclea became a municipium, and the Tabulae Heracleenses contain a long Latin inscription relating to the municipal regulations of Heraclea, which is a part of a copy of a more general law, the Lex Iulia Municipalis, issued in 45 BCE for the regulation of the municipal institutions of towns throughout Italy. This document is a major authority for the municipal law of ancient Italy; it is engraved on two tablets of bronze, on the back of which is a long Greek inscription of earlier date, probably the 3rd century BC, defining the boundaries of lands belonging to various temples.

    The tablets were separate, and the major one was in two fragments. They were found in 1732, and 1735, in the bed of the Cavone river. The tablets are now in the Naples National Archaeological Museum.

    The Latin inscription was first published by Michel Maittaire in 1735. Both inscriptions were published with commentaries, by Alessio Simmacho Mazzocchi, b.1684 d.1771, in Naples in 1754, 1755.******
