509 PRYNNE (W.). COLLECTION OF RECORDS.
AN EXACT CHRONOLOGICAL VINDICATION and HISTORICAL DEMONSTRATION
The excessive rarity of Prynne's Records, owing to the destruction of the entire impression of the first volume (with the exception of about twenty-five copies) in the great Fire of London, is too well known to collectors to require comment. The Duke of Sussex's copy sold for £155; Willett's for £152. 5s; and the Duke of Buckingham's (above) in the Stowe sale for £149; it afterwards fetched £164, which sum I paid. 510 RAMBLER, first edition. (General title :) THE RAMBLER. Nullius addictus jurare in verba magistri, Quo me cunque rapit tempestas deferor hospes. HOR. (Here a device) LONDON: Printed for J. PAYNE, and J. BOUQUET, in Pater-noster-row. M. DCC. LI
COMPLETE in 2 vols., sm. folio, mottled calf, gilt tops, UNCUT 1749-52 31 1 Very rare in this uncut state. It comprises the complete set of 208 numbers, the first of which was published on Tuesday, March 20, 1749-50, and the last on Saturday the 17th March, 1752, issued every Tuesday and Saturday, without the loss of a single publication-day. Dr. Johnson wrote the whole of the 208 papers with the exception of nos. 10, 30, 97 (by Samuel Richardson), and 100. At first the sale was slow, but they soon became very popular and before his death the author had the satisfaction of seeing ten editions issued in London, besides Scotch and Irish reprints.
511 RAYNALDE (Thomas). (Title within woodcut border
Sm. 4to., black letter; with 4 copperplates (on 2 leaves);
The work is a translation by Robert Jonas, who dedicated it to Queen Catherine Parr, from the Latin of Eucharius Roesslin's "De partu hominis et que circa ipsum accidunt", which appeared at Frankfort in 1532. It is noticeable as being probably the first English work containing copperplates, and either the first or second treating of midwifery. With this first edition Thomas Raynalde the physician had apparently no connection. He afterwards
