Contemporary Review
1878 First Edition Disbound Good Condition Octavo (standard book size) 
A particularly interesting selection of material, dealing with this topic from practical aspects, often medical, rather than the more usual moral tendency. The article by Jevons is one of a small number he wrote around this time dealing with practical social issues. To aid clarity in identifying these items they have been numbered 1 to 14 as follows; 1. Experimental Legislation and the Drink Traffic. By W. Stanley Jevons. 1880. 16 pages. 2. Intemperance and the Licensing System. By Alexander Balfour. 1879. 20 pages. 3. The Contrast of Temperance with Abstinence. By James Paget. 1878. 9 pages. 4. The Action of Alcohol. By T. Lauder Brunton. 1878. 10 pages. 5. The Moderate Use of Alcohol. True Temperance. By Albert J. Bernays. 1878. 7 pages. 6. Advantages and Disadvantages of Alcohol. By William W. Gull (edited by Dr. J.C. Bucknill). 1878. 5 pages. 7. The Utility of Alcohol in Health and in Disease. By Charles Murchison. 1878. 5 pages. 8. Alcohol and Individuality; or, Why Did He Become A Drunkard ? By Walter Moxon. 1878. 18 pages. 9. The Action and Uses of Alcoholic Drinks. By Samuel Wilks. 1878. 6 pages. 10. Temperance versus Abstinence. By James Risdon Bennett. 1879. 5 pages. 11. A Casual Conversation on the Subject. By C.B. Radcliffe. 1879. 7 pages. 12. Temperance and its Boundaries. By Joseph Kidd. 1879. 7 pages. 13. The Place and Uses of Alcohol as an Article of Diet. By R. Brundenell Carter. 1879. 8 pages. 14. Results of Experience in the Use of Alcohol. By A.B. Garrod. 1879. 8 pages. Items 3 to 14 have to a large extent been underlined in purple ink in a number of places. They are still entirely readable and legible. Note; these are original articles separated from their respective volumes, not offprints or reprints. Size: Octavo (standard book size).

Ashgate Publishing
2003 0754630943 / 9780754630944 Hardcover Fine Octavo (standard book size) 
With a short introductory essay, putting the original writer and their works in an historical context, together with short bibliographical notes. Born Alice Clarke, the daughter of Oxford university's 'first director of printing', Alicia D'Anvers' poetry demonstrates an intimate familiarity with Oxford and especially with the workings of the press. This volume reproduces three works: A Poem Upon His Sacred Majesty, His Voyage for Holland (1691), Academia: or, the Humours of the University of Oxford in Burlesque Verse (1691), and The Oxford-Act: A Poem (1693). A Poem Upon His Sacred Majesty? responds to William III's decision to visit his native Holland to negotiate with fellow Protestants about their conflict with Catholic France. William, often impatient with English political wrangling, sometimes hinted that he might abdicate and return to Holland. D'Anvers' poem reflects real anxieties about such an event, as well as solid support for the Protestant king. The copy reproduced in this edition is from the Houghton Library at Harvard University. Academia and The Oxford-Act concern more local matters. Probably D'Anvers' best poem, Academia satirises some of Oxford University's 'younger sort', often adopting language that seems as rough and coarse as that of the men that she mocks. The Oxford-Act focuses on the annual university 'Act' or commencement ceremony which lasted for several days and included many rituals. The copy reproduced here is from The Huntington Library. The copy of Academia is reproduced from that held at the Folger Shakespeare Library. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 122 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Women & Feminism; Early Modern Englishwomen; England; Antiquarian & Rare. ISBN: 0754630943. ISBN/EAN: 9780754630944. Hardcover 192055 1.00

2003 075463096X / 9780754630968 Hardcover Fine Octavo (standard book size) 
With a short introductory essay, putting the original writer and their works in an historical context, together with short bibliographical notes. The Females Legacy is the only surviving work of Amey Howard about whom very little is known. While rarely political or even topical, The Females Legacy generally conforms to much of the same militantly Protestant ideology of the sort Harris spent his life advocating. The volume contains twenty-six devotional poems nearly all of which feature a male speaker. Some are 'meditations' in which the speaker considers the import of an Old or New Testament narrative. Others are 'dialogues' between speakers who grapple with a sudden realisation of their own sinful natures and a biblical figure who introduces them to Christ's redemptive majesty. Interspersed amongst these two kinds of verse are a few other poems which directly address women or deploy them as protagonists. This edition reproduces the sole surviving copy of The Females Legacy held in the British Library. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 122 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Women & Feminism; Early Modern Englishwomen; England; Antiquarian & Rare. ISBN: 075463096X. ISBN/EAN: 9780754630968. Hardcover 192056 1.00

2003 0754630935 / 9780754630937 Hardcover Fine Octavo (standard book size) 
With a short introductory essay, putting the original writer and their works in an historical context, together with short bibliographical notes. An Collins' Divine Songs and Meditacions were first printed in a small octavo volume in London in 1653. The only extant copy is presently held at The Huntington Library and it is, therefore, this copy that is reproduced in this facsimile edition. It is an important text because it is one of the earliest volumes of collected poems by an English woman in the seventeenth century. The poems are especially intriguing because of the glimpses they provide into the life and mind of a woman writer during this period and because of the social, political, historical and religious contexts in which they are embedded. The precise identity of An Collins' remains a mystery, and scholars have had to rely on the Divine Songs and Meditacions for most of their understanding of its author, often drawing very different conclusions about her religious, social and political beliefs. To date critics have focused on the biographical and historical interest of the poems, but as Robert Evans highlights in his Introductory Note to the volume, these works also exhibit a rhetorical power and skill that merits further attention. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 130 pages. Multiple copies available this title. Quantity Available: 2. Category: Women & Feminism; Early Modern Englishwomen; England; Antiquarian & Rare.

2006 0754631060 / 9780754631064 Hardcover Fine Octavo (standard book size) 
With a short introductory essay, putting the original writer and their works in an historical context, together with short bibliographical notes. Little is known of Anna Hume except as the translator of the first three of Petrach's Trionfi and also as the daughter of David Hume of Godscroft whose History of the Houses of Douglas and Angus she edited in one of its troubled versions. This volume reprints her translation of Petrarch's The Triumphs of Love - a series of six poems celebrating Petrarch's purported devotion to Laura. The poems tell a tale of Love's triumph over the poet, superseded by the triumph of chastity (in that Laura did not yield to Petrarch's love) which is in turn superseded by the triumph of death over Laura. Hume's 1644 translation is reproduced here with five related texts as appendices - an emblem and poem by Robert Farley; the translation of The Triumph of Eternitie by Elizabeth I; the translation of The Triumph of Death by Mary Sidney Herbert; illustrations from Il Petrarcha con l'espositione di M. Alessandro Vellutello?and the translation of lines 102-172 of The Triumph of Death by Barbarina Ogle Brand, Lady Dacre. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 166 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Women & Feminism; Early Modern Englishwomen; England; Antiquarian & Rare. ISBN: 0754631060. ISBN/EAN: 9780754631064. Hardcover 192068 1.00

Ashgate Publishing
2005 0754630625 / 9780754630623 Hardcover Fine Octavo (standard book size) 
With a short introductory essay, putting the original writer and their works in an historical context, together with short bibliographical notes. The title page of the 1651 continuation of Sir Philip Sidney's Arcadia, which is made available in facsimile in this volume, designates its author as 'Mris A. W.' It is now the convention to attribute the volume to Anna Weamys. Little is known about the author; the only other information about her is suggested by the substantial number of commendatory verses which precede the text. Though details about her and the specific motivations for continuing Sidney's work remain tantalisingly absent, Anna Weamys's text is important for understanding the reception of Sidney by women readers, as well as the development of prose fiction as it evolved towards the novel. Its female heroines illustrate a real concern with how women might navigate the straits of female behaviour in a judgmental and partisan society. The Introductory Note to this volume provides some analysis of how gender, class, and historical and cultural values affect what Weamys chose to pick up from Sidney's work and what seems to be of lesser interest to her. For example, in the three stories from Sidney's Arcadia on which she focuses, Weamys brings an awareness of the difficulties of women's position to bear on narrative in a way which prefigures the novel.

With a short introductory essay, putting the original writer and their works in an historical context, together with short bibliographical notes. Anne Cooke Bacon was highly educated and was known for her ability to read Latin, Greek, Italian and French. She married Sir Nicholas Bacon, Queen?s Keeper of the Great Seal and a member of Elizabeth?s Privy Council. The directions of the new Church of England were heavily influenced by her husband and Anne too was actively involved in the religious controversies of her day, her translations position her as a strong advocate for the Protestant cause. Whilst in her early 20s she translated the sermons of Bernardino Ochino, a popular Italian preacher who converted to Calvinism. Her translations were printed in four different volumes of Ochino?s sermons (between 1548 and 1570) although the publishers of these editions did not always see fit to name her as the translator. Translations by R. Argentyne were often included in the volumes and, in the earlier editions, he was credited with her work. The text reproduced here comes from the 1551 edition of Fouretene sermons of Barnardine Ochyne ? translated by AC as it not only includes Anne?s dedication to her mother and a preface in praise of Anne?s work but is the only edition of more than five sermons that does not also reprint translations by Argentyne. As an appendix to the present volume the five sermons translated by AC in the 1551 edition of Certayne sermons of the ryghte famous and excellent clerke ? are included. These five plus the fourteen reprinted in the body of this book constitute all of the sermons that Anne Cooke is known to have translated and published. In 1562 John Jewel?s Apologia ecclesiae anglicanae was published in England and was viewed as the authoritative defence of the English Church. Anne Cooke Bacon?s translation of it was published in 1564 and became the official English version. The text reprinted here is unusually clear and also has the advantage of including an engraving of Lady Bacon. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 474 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

2006 0754609928 / 9780754609926 Hardcover Fine Octavo (standard book size) 
With a short introductory essay, putting the original writer and their works in an historical context, together with short bibliographical notes. Unfamiliar today, The saints legacies? by Anne Fenwick (pseudonym Anne Phoenix) was a modest but unquestionable best seller. First published in 1629, it went through no fewer than thirteen editions between then and 1688. Most of the many thousands of Stuart readers would not have known that it was such a rare specimen: a work of godly practical divinity written by a woman. Anne Fenwick was a charismatic puritan, known for her zealous and radical non-conformist activities. She was arrested and tried before the Durham High Commission, after being targeted by the notoriously anti-puritan Bishop Neile, escaped from house arrest by May 1624 and became a noted author of religious writings. In 1629 one of her manuscripts, A collection of certaine promises out of the word of God, was published without her knowledge by the printer Robert Swayne, but the more definitive edition reproduced here was published by Michael Sparke in 1631. This edition was published with her consent and includes her prefatory letter, in which she explains the circumstances of the initial publication, and notes that she passed her own 'perfect copy' of the book to Swayne. It is reasonable to assume that this edition represents the version most faithful to the author's own manuscript and intentions. The knowledge that there was space for such a woman within the early Stuart puritan community - simultaneously prophetess, scriptual exegete and published writer - offers insight into the dramatic explosion of women's preaching and writing in the 1640s and 1650s.

2000 1840142197 / 9781840142198 Hardcover Fine Octavo (standard book size) 
With a short introductory essay, putting the original writer and their works in an historical context, together with short bibliographical notes. Despite the fame their work brought them, and despite the importance of their parents in mid-Tudor England, relatively little is known of the lives of Anne, Margaret and Jane Seymour - daughters of Anne Stanhope and the Duke of Somerset. In 1550, aged roughly eighteen, sixteen and nine, these three noblewomen composed a Latin poem of 104 distichs on the death of Marguerite de Navarre, which they sent to their former tutor, Nicolas Denisot, now living in Paris. Entitled Annae, Margaritae, Janae, Sororum virginum heroidum anglarum, in mortem Divae Margaritae Valesiae, navarrorum Reginae, Hecatodistichon, it was the first formal and original verse encomium in Latin penned by a female author to be printed in England. The Hecatodistichon was published in Paris in 1550 by Denisot, as the cornerstone of a collective tumulus, or commemorative volume, dedicated to Marguerite. The French literati were swift to respond to the appearance of the volume. In 1551 Denisot republished the Seymour's poem in a completely new volume with a French title that emphasised the collective nature of the Tombeau volume. Both volumes are reproduced here from editions held at the British Library. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 208 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

This material benefits from the immediacy and contemporary nature of the moment it is written in, and much of it has been ignored or at best skimmed over in the standard studies, and it provides the opportunity for much further study and fresh commentary on these important economic topics.

Key pieces include Malthus on Commerce (1808), McCulloch on the Banking System of England (1826), Aytoun on Scottish Banking (1844), Brougham on British Finances and the Sinking Fund (1815), Austin on the Dangers of the German Custom Union (1842), Jacques Necker on the Finances of France (1786), John Wheatley on the Theory of Money (1807), and other similar such material. Publication sources include rare issues of the Eclectic Review, early years of the Edinburgh Review and Quarterly Review, the Anti Jacobin, the British Critic and other uncommon journals from the first half of the nineteenth century. The majority of the articles are octavo in size. The entire collection runs to around 1200 pages. Note; this is a collection of articles all separated and disbound from other volumes, not offprints or reprints. All are original first editions, not reprints or photocopies. Overall condition is very good, with bright clean, easily readable pages. There is some browning here and there to a few pages, but not many.

1834 No ISBN First Edition Hardcover Very Good Condition Journal 
The Babbage article is 65 pages, with textual tables, 5 textual figures, etc. Octavo. The complete volume 59 (545pp, index). Bound in a late 20th century purple buckram binding, gilt lettered. Very sound and firm throughout, no cracked joints or loose pages. Ex university library, with their stamp to the rear of the title page, and tickets on the front endpapers, and class number label to the foot of the spine, otherwise quite unmarked throughout. Overall a very clean and sound volume. Lardner's article represents a chief source of information regarding Babbage's invention. A review of seven publications, from Babbage, and the Royal Society it presents in an accessible form an understanding of Babbage's mechanical notations and the basic workings of the machine. The Edinburgh Review article proved influential to other interested scientists including Pehr Georg Scheutz who in due course was able to build a calculating machine based upon Babbage's principles, but at a fraction of the cost. Lardner himself appears to have been most interested in mathematical table errors, to the extent of suggesting that Babbage's machine was the only possible means of eradicating them. The Edinburgh Review article was in effect a published version of a lecture series conducted by Lardner in the north of England in early 1834, where Lardner had developed an accessible means of explaining the Calculating Machine to a wider audience. He wrote the article with some help and support from Babbage. A key article regarding arguably the founding father of computing science. Quantity Available: 1.

The complete volume 111 (556pp, index). Bound in a late 20th century purple buckram binding, gilt lettered. Very sound and firm throughout, no cracked joints or loose pages. Ex university library, with their stamp to the rear of the title page, and tickets on the front endpapers, and class number label to the foot of the spine, otherwise quite unmarked throughout. Overall a very clean and sound volume. Owen's review of Darwin for the Edinburgh Review was considered by many at the time to effectively crush the evolutionist theory. Attacking Darwin's chief supporters, Hooker and Huxley as mere adherents, he claimed that Darwin represented an abuse of science whilst ignoring or dismissing Owen's own creationist views. In response Darwin believed Owen to be spiteful and malignant, though he also admitted to being hurt by Owen's views of him. One of Owen's chief charges was that Darwin had failed to bring any new facts to light, effectively basing his theory on imagination rather than observation. The arguments that raged through the scientific community, and indeed the popular press in the months and years following Darwin's publication were often buttressed by reference to Owen's opposition, and it was effectively the 1870s before Owen's views were widely discounted in public perception. This Edinburgh Review article is one of the cornerstone pieces of writing in the Darwin evolutionary theory debates of the 19th century. Size: Octavo (standard book size). Quantity Available: 1.

With a short introductory essay, putting the original writer and their works in an historical context, together with short bibliographical notes. Little is known of the upbringing of Lady Eleanor Davies, what is known is that her life was mired in both flamboyant personal conflict and in the notoriety of the Castlehaven scandal (resulting in the execution of her brother), and that her writings were embroiled in political affairs. Married in 1609 to Sir John Davies, her husband tried to discourage her prophetic writing and burned her early treatises. Her second husband, Sir Archibald Douglas was equally critical. Once free from the censorship of her husbands, her prophetic career spanned the years between 1625 and 1652. During that time she published some 69 treatises, spent years in prison, and some time in Bedlam, and made astonishing predictions on a wide range of subjects. Viewed as both an inspired seer and a mad ?ladie? by her contemporaries, Lady Eleanor has received a great deal of scholarly attention, not least of all because of her densely allusive and complex prose style. Reproduced here is the 1625 treatise A Warning to the Dragon and all his Angels which is a classic example of the kind of apocalyptic writing that predominates in late-sixteenth- and early-seventeenth-century England. All the kings of the earth shall prayse thee (1633) is one of three texts that Lady Eleanor had printed in Amsterdam and is an exegetical treatise on the visions of Daniel. Woe to the House (1633) is the first of Lady Eleanor?s four treatises that defended the innocence of her brother, Mervin Touchet. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 160 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Women & Feminism; Early Modern Englishwomen; England; Antiquarian & Rare. ISBN: 1840142162. ISBN/EAN: 9781840142167. Hardcover 192046 1.00

With a short introductory essay, putting the original writer and their works in an historical context, together with short bibliographical notes. The history of the angelicall virgin glorious S.Clare (Douai 1635) is a translation by 'Sister Magdalen' of a work by the Franciscan priest Fran??ois Hendricq, Vie admirable de madame S. Claire fondatrice des Pauvres Clairesses (1631). In its turn Hendricq's book is largely a translation of parts of Luke Wadding's Annales ordinis minorum ('Annals of the Franciscan Order'). These volumes include an account of the activities of the young woman, Clara Offreduccio di Favarone, one of the many followers of St. Francis of Assisi. In 1212 Clara was advised by St. Francis to withdraw to the monastery at San Damiano in Assisi. In this way St. Francis founded his Second Order, an order of religious women known as the Poor Clares. 'Sister Magdalen' has been identified as Elizabeth Evelinge who belonged to a dissident group of Poor Clares that left their English convent at Gravelines in 1627 and started a new convent at Aire in May 1629. The copy of her translation reproduced in this volume is that of Heythrop College, University of London. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 298 pages. Multiple copies available this title.
