About This Item

Glasguae [Glasgow]: In Aedibus Academicis Excudebant Robertus et Andreas Foulis [Foulis Press], 1760. Editio Quarta [Fourth Edition]. Hardcover. Very Good. Foolscap 4to. [9], viii-ix, [2], xii, [1], 2-307, [3] pp. Original smooth calf, spine neatly rebacked (likely a contemporary rebacking), with the original spine laid down. Boards are ruled in gilt, all edges gilt, with the spine in six compartment, the second compartment features a maroon morocco label (lettered in gilt). Armorial bookplate of Robert Barclay of Bury Hill, and a late nineteenth or early twentieth-century bookplate of Charles L. Dana. Robert Barclay was a wealthy brewer, and owned the estate of Bury Hill for 150 years. On the estate he created several botanical gardens and ponds, as he was also a botanist (Exploring Surrey's Past, "Dorking: Bury Hill and the Barclays"). Charles L. Dana was a doctor at Cornell Medical College, studying nervous diseases and mental illnesses. He was an avid book collector and a member of the Sons of the American Revolution, the Society of Colonial Wars, and the Century Association. He founded the Charaka Club, a society for New York physicians to gather and discuss issues of literary and historical importance. Exploring Surrey's Past: "Dorking: Bury Hill and the Barclays". Gaskell 383. Wikipedia, ADNB: "Charles Loomis Dana". This volume includes the Epodes, the Satires, the Epistles, the Art of Poetry, and Horace's varied songs, or shorter poems (carmina). A later edition from the Foulis Press, a historic Scottish printer and book-bindery. A Very Good volume with a bit of wear to the boards' corners, and a few, very discreet, contemporary owner's markings.
