About this Item: W. Tooke / J. Wilkie, 1769. Leather Bound. Condition: Very Good Plus. Presumed First Edition Thus. London: Printed by W. Tooke, for J. Wilkie, in St. Paul's-Church-Yard, 1769. Second volume (of two) only. Presumed first edition of this uncredited "translation" (see comments below). 12mo., [4] + 270 pp. Three-quarter red morocco and marbled boards, marbled endpapers. Small-scale scuffing to leather at spine ends and edges, light wear otherwise. Early owner's bookplate at front pastedown; the number "26" is inked in the corner on the verso of the ffep. Overall, notably better than very good. Uncommon version, finely bound, of the biblical story of Othniel and Achsah. An ostensible translation by William Tooke from the original Chaldee (the semitic language of Chaldea, an ancient region of Babylon), but it is believed Tooke actually authored the work himself, as his exposition of the philosophy and religion of that area. Some original characters and text occur, but the text is of course in English (1769 English). Highly biblical tone, with correlative aphorisms liberally seasoning the plot action. For the bookplate collector, the one decorating the front pastedown (see scan) is that of Reuben Jeffery - possibly the grandfather of Reuben Jeffery III, the Under-Secretary of State for George W. Bush, but there is no provenance here to that effect. Just volume two here, but its stature as an enchanting piece of the binder's art, a serious vintage shelf display, is its highest collector value. Please see scans. l49n. Seller Inventory # 000694
