    The gentleman's pocket-farrier; shewing, how to use your horse on a journey. And what remedies are proper for common misfortunes that may befal him on the road. by BURDON, Capt. William

    London: printed for the author by S. Buckley in Amen-Corner. 1730. 8vo., (18) + 101 + (13)pp., in a fine old-style half calf over marbled boards, spine gilt with raised bands and labels. A handsome copy. First edition. A charming pocket book for the discerning (and prudent) gentleman, much expanded in numerous later printings right through the 18th century. American editions were also published ca. 1778-1793. 'A farrier is as useful a trade as any other in His Majesty's Dominions; we commonly call him Doctor, because he professes physick and surgery among horses; and some are good sensible men; but people who are able to give their sons learning, seldom bind 'em to that trade; so that farriers are oblig'd to take such apprentices as they can get, without regard to their education. ..... Thus many are illiterate, and some totally incapable of improvement. ..... The design therefore of this little treatise, is to inform gentlemen, 1st. what methods are best to be us'd if their horses fall lame. 2dly. What medicines are proper to give 'em when sick. 3dly. How to direct the manual operations, and escape the impositions of ignorant men'. [Prefece].

    The Surinam Album by Maria Sibylla Merian; Julie Harvey

    London: Folio Society, 2006. Collector's Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. Includes the massive leather bound volume 55 x 36 cm green leather bound volume containing 91 tipped in watercolor reproductions, a 25 x 16 cm, 85 page commentary volume, copies of 5 of the watercolors in an envelope along with the books all housed inside a green clamshell box. Folio Society facsimile of The Surinam Album. Limited to 1000 copies. There is some scratching to the clamshell. From the Folio Society letter: " Maria Sibylla Merian was one of the 17th and 19th centuries' great painters of plants and animals, standing alongside artists like Redoute, Ehret and Bauer. Many books on botanical art reproduce images from the Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium, a selection of 60 engravings she published in 1705... Merian's paintings contian subtleties of colour and drawing which could not be reproduced by 18th century methods, making the originals incomparably superior to the engravings."
