About this Item

Lg. 4to. 8 vols. Uniformly bound by "J. MacKenzie, Binder to the King" in contemporary half maroon morocco, ornately gilt, over marbled boards. A.e.g. Extremities a bit rubbed, but all are in very good condition. Boldly signed by Taylor in ink at the end of the first volume. All of the volumes with the bookplate of Frances Mary Richardson Currer (1785-1861) called the "head of all female book collectors in Europe" by T. F. Dibdin. Eight of the ten volumes of the complete translation of Aristotle's works from the original Greek into English. Only 50 sets were printed, and today they seldom appear for sale. There are some sets which have 11 volumes. These contain both the first edition of THE METAPHYSICS which Taylor translated in 1801 and printed in the same large quarto format and the second edition of the METAPHYSICS with significant added material revised for "The Works" in 1812. Our set offered contains the 1801 first edition, as listed below. Lacking from our set are the volumes titled "The Physics" and "The Treatises on the Heavens, etc." The eight volumes present in this set are the following:1. The Organon. 18072. The Treatises on the Soul. 18083. The History of Animals. 18094. The Treatises on the Parts and Progressive Motion of Animals, etc. 18105. The Rhetoric. 18116. The Great and Eudemian Ethics. 18117. A Dissertation on the Philosophy of Aristotle. 18128. The Metaphysics (first edition of 1801). Bookseller Inventory # 8308
