About this Item

Marbled boards with leather binding. 512 pp, plus 10 pages of index. January throughJune 1754, plus a lengthy appendix. Most likely from the collection of George Peabody, as this was purchased in a lot of others, some of which bear his signature. Containing the Peabody Institute bookplate on the inside front cover, which also states, Presented by George Peabody. George Peabody (1795-1869) is considered one of the first modern philanthropists, establishing trusts to help the poor, as well as founding the Peabody Institute. He gained much of his fortune from banking, eventually partnering with Junius Spencer Morgan, father of J.P. Morgan. Edited and published by Ralph Griffiths, the Monthly Review published works of criticism on many authors and books, providing bibliographic and historical information on many topics. Of note in this volume are several articles and extracts on topics such as the use of artillery as taught by the Chinese, the history of the Chinese, the establishment of Sir Isaac Newton's doctrine of colour, a history of the Druids including their use of witchcraft and magic, fireworks as used by the Chinese, a brief look at Native Americans including the Creek Indians, a discussion of Mercator and whether he published as his own a Mr. Wright's sea chart, etc. EX-LIBRARY, from the Peabody Institute. In GOOD condition with the boards covered by dull blue paper glued to the inside cover. This paper bears library shelving info on the spine. The paper bears some soiling, fading and scuffing. Aforementioned bookplate present. Library ownership stamp and call numbers on the title pages. Small circular library stamp on one page in the text. Interior hinges repaired with library binding tape. Minor scattered foxing and soiling, a bit heavier to the title page. Minor toning to the pages. Bookseller Inventory # 003854
