About This Item

Cantabrigiae: Excusum per Joannem Field, 1665. 12mo (14 cm, 5.5"). [1] f., 19, [1], 755 [i.e. 767, 1], 516 pp. (without the initial blank).

The second English edition of the Septuagint. There are different issues: This a copy of the one with the third word of the Greek title readiing "Diath?che" and not "Diath?ke" and with the printer's device showing the man holding the sun in his left hand. Thus, this is Darlow and Moule issue "B." => Thomas Jefferson owned a copy of one of the issues of this edition.
    Provenance: Manuscript ownership inscription of John Ray dated 1716 (on retained fly-leaf); ownership signature of Robert L. Wilson, New York, 1818 (on title-page); gilt supra-libros of Barzillai Slosson, dated 1829. Later in the Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released).
    Binding: American binding of dark blue goat, richly gilt, with wide floral border on covers and spine distinctively gilt using rules and floral roll. Board edges with a gilt roll; turn-ins gilt tooled. Marbled endpapers. All edges gilt. Gilt supra-libros of Barzillai Slosson as above. Unsigned.
    Barzillai Slosson may have been related to the lawyer of the same name who was active in Kent, CT, at the end of the 18th century and into the fourth decade of the 19th, whose account books are in the Yale Law Library; perhaps, the Barzillai who graduated from Columbia College in 1818 and later moved to Geneva, NY, where he was active and successful in business and civic affairs.
    
    Wing (rev. ed.) B2719. Darlow & Moule; 4702; ESTC R236848; Sowerby, Catalogue of the library of Thomas Jefferson, 1473. Binding as above, lightly rubbed. Pages closely cropped in the 19th-century rebinding and some initial or final letters touched or lost. Very good.

About Philadelphia Rare Books & Manuscripts Co., LLC (PRB&M)

The Philadelphia Rare Books & Manuscripts Co. (PRB&M/SessaBks), LLC, offers “Early Books of Europe & the Americas – Other Rarities as Chance may Supply,” and the partners like to observe that its typical book is “interesting for more than one reason.” Established in 1984 and now located on the wide parade ground of a former U.S. Army Arsenal in a historic “Officers’ Quarters” building dating in its oldest part from 1820, the shop is open to visitors by appointment and additionally keeps “Open House” most Saturdays 12 (noon) to 4. Up front, two large bookrooms offer the shop’s early, antiquarian books, while old porches and other areas offer the browsable stocks of its “SessaBks” division — the “medium rare” and the “good used.” Visitors must plan to call for reservations and directions as the partners are not always available and different Arsenal entry gates are open depending on what day or time it is, while GPS will NOT get guests all the way to PRB&M’s door within the “compound.”“Our Bottom Line”: We pride ourselves on the intrinsic interest of our material,the accuracy of our cataloguing, and the integrity of our dealings. We aim, simply, to place good books and manuscripts where they will be zestfully used and possessed with satisfaction.
