About this Item: Hodder & Stoughton, London, 1919. Hardcover. Condition: Near fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very good. First edition. This is the memoir of Admiral Sir John Arbuthnot Fisher (1841-1920), the first edition in dust jacket. A legendary figure, Fisher would ultimately become most famous for his association with Winston Churchill during the disastrous Dardanelles campaign of the First World War. Fisher joined the navy in 1854 when British warships still carried sails. During his first stint as First Sea Lord (1904-1910), he presided over transformation of the British Navy. But he also cemented a reputation for volatility and vindictiveness. In 1914 when Churchill again made him First Sea Lord, Fisher was in his mid 70s, retired, and a member of the peerage. Churchill, only 39, had been First Lord of the Admiralty since 1911. The dominating event of their partnership would be the British assault on the Dardanelles. In 1915, with Fisher's support and endorsement, Churchill conceived a strategy to defeat Turkey. Fisher himself "suggested a substantial naval and military assault against Turkey, including a naval attack at the Dardanelles and a military landing at Gallipoli peninsula". (Martin Gilbert) The plan was enthusiastically backed by the Prime Minister's War Council. Unfortunately, the Admiral in command called off the attack as soon as several ships expectedly hit mines. Churchill's exhortations to press on were ignored. Worse still, Fisher turned on the enterprise, raging dishonestly that he had opposed the enterprise "all along". Fisher's Cabinet tantrums forced the recall of some ships. Then, after being placated at the cost of the campaign, Fisher abruptly resigned and deserted his post, refusing even direct appeal from the Prime Minister to return. The subsequent military attack failed - partly due to the naval failure. Gallipoli claimed more than 60,000 soldiers. By resigning, Fisher likely aimed to distance himself from a military endeavor he had both supported and doomed, and to politically cripple Churchill. For a time, he succeeded. Churchill would assume blame for the Dardanelles and resign from the Admiralty in 1915, after which he served as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. By the war's end, Churchill was exonerated by the Dardanelles Commission and rejoined the Government. History would confirm that the naval force came close to penetrating the Dardanelles minefields and that the Turkish shore batteries were short of ammunition. But these facts did Churchill no good at the time and the stigma of the Dardanelles would linger. Here is Fisher's story, published a year before his death. "The Dardanelles" consumes pages 49-90, of course with frequent discussion of Churchill. The first edition is not especially scarce in average, unjacketed condition, but is quite scarce thus - near-fine in a very good dust jacket. The red cloth binding is pristine - square and clean with sharp corners, bright gilt, nicely rounded spine, and virtually no wear. The contents are bright and tight. The book is unread, with the signatures throughout remaining uncut. Transfer browning to the endpapers corresponding to the dust jacket flaps testifies that this copy has spent its life jacketed. The flaw preventing this from being an extraordinary fine copy is spotting, primarily confined to the endpapers and page ends, but lightly intermittent throughout. The only indication of previous ownership is two small "Duplicate Hoover Institute" ink stamps on the ffep. The scarce dust jacket is in a plum color quite susceptible to sunning. Nonetheless, the spine shows only a hint of color shift and the color remains strong, with no color shift between the dust jacket flaps and dust jacket faces. Apart from fractional wear to the corners, the only losses are at the spine - chipping to a maximum depth of 3/8 inch at the head and a 1/4 inch circular loss taking most of the "D" in "Lord Fisher". The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Zoller B30. Seller Inventory # 001507

About this Item: Parisiis : Apud P. Fr. Didot juniorem , 1772., 1772. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 1772 De Medicina Aulus Cornelius Celsus Medicine Surgery Pharmacy Encyclopedia FAMOUS Early Roman Medical Text / compare@$810 De Medicina is a 1st-century BC medical treatise by Aulus Cornelius Celsus, a Roman encyclopedist and possibly (but not likely) a practicing physician. It is the only surviving section of a much larger encyclopedia; only small parts still survive from sections on agriculture, military science, oratory, jurisprudence and philosophy. De Medicina draws upon knowledge from ancient Greek works, and is considered the best surviving treatise on Alexandrian medicine. Aulus Cornelius Celsus (c. 25 BC – c. 50 AD) was a Roman encyclopaedist, known for his extant medical work, De Medicina, which is believed to be the only surviving section of a much larger encyclopedia. The De Medicina is a primary source on diet, pharmacy, surgery and related fields, and it is one of the best sources concerning medical knowledge in the Roman world. The lost portions of his encyclopedia likely included volumes on agriculture, law, rhetoric, and military arts. He made contributions to the classification of human skin disorders in dermatology, such as Myrmecia, and his name is often occurring in medical terms about the skin, e.g., kerion celsi and area celsi.

London: printed for J. Moor, and sold by the booksellers of London and Westminster, n.d. (1714). 19 pp. [With:] A farther continuation of the History of the Crown-Inn. Part III. Containing the present state of the Inn, and other particulars. London: printed for J. Moor, and sold by the booksellers of London and Westminster, n.d. (1714). 20 pp. [With:] The fourth and last part of the History of the Crown-Inn: with the character of John Bull, and other novels. Part IV. London: printed for J. Moor, and sold by the booksellers of London and Westminster, n.d. (1714). Together four parts, 8vo, disbound. Fourth edition of the first part, and first edition of Parts II-IV. A complete set of four pamphlets composed as a kind of sequel to Law Is a Bottomless Pit; Or, the History of John Bull, which, with three further parts and an appendix, had appeared in 1712 as a clever satire on the war policy of the Whigs; both Pope and Swift ascribed the original five pamphlets to their fellow Scriblerian John Arbuthnot (though at the time the authorship of Swift was widely suspected). The present group picks up the satire after the death of Queen Anne, and the fall from power of the Tory ministry. The attrbution of these pamphlets to Arbuthnot is very tentative; more likely they were the handiwork of an imitator. In very good condition; complete sets are scarce. Seller Inventory # B3429

About this Item: London 1714., 1714. An invitation to peace: or, Toby's preliminaries to Nestor Ironsides, set forth in a dialogue between Toby and his kinsman. London: printed and sold by Mr. Lawrence, n.d. (1714). 23 pp. 8vo, disbound. First edition. A very amusing Scriblerian contribution to an ongoing pamphlet attack on Addison and Steele, responding in particular to William Wagstaffe's Letter from the Facetious Dr. Andrew Tripe, at Bath, to the Venerable Nestor Ironside. "Toby" was the persona used by Wagstaffe in a previous mock-biography of Steele; he was in fact a nephew of the bookseller Abel Roper, and to judge from the frontispiece portrait in that tract he was feeble-minded. The satire here is much lighter than that of Wagstaffe, a high-church physician who hated all Whigs with a passion; the military metaphor is cleverly maintained throughout, and there are funny allusions to such contemporaries as Jacob Tonson, Swift, and Congreve. At the end is a two-page poem, "To Mr. Ironsides." The attribution of this pamphlet to Arbuthnot is cited by the NCBEL as tentative, but the manner of it is entirely consistent with Arbuthnot's other squibs; the ascription is not queried by the ESTC. A fine copy of a very uncommon satire. Rothschild 47 (listed as anonymous); CBEL II, 1052. Seller Inventory # B3428

About this Item: London 1734., 1734. [In Greek: Gnothi seaton.] Know your self. A poem. London: printed for J. Tonson, 1734. (4), 8 pp. 4to, disbound. First edition. An important philosophical poem, published just before the author's death. Arbuthnot, a physician by profession and a wit by reputation, was for many years a close friend of Pope and Swift; when this poem appeared he had just retired in ailing health to Hampstead, where he died some months later. A preliminary "advertisement" here notes that the poem had been written "several years ago;" in 1748 Dodsley included it in his Collection of Poems by Several Hands. "It contains some thoughts of Monsieur Pascal, which cannot make it less acceptable to the publick." A very good copy of the only separately-published poem which can be ascribed with certainty to Arbuthnot. Very uncommon. Foxon A290; CBEL II, 1051. Seller Inventory # B5597
