[SCHLOSSER, Johann Albert]. BODDAERT, Pieter.

Epistola ad virum celeberrimum Johannem Burmannum … De Chaetodonte Argo descripto atque accuratissima icone illustrato ex museo vir celeberrimi Joannis Alberti Schlosseri …

First and only edition of Boddaert’s description of this Indo-West Pacific fish species found in the Schlosser natural history cabinet. This is the first monograph on this particular fish species. Boddaert substantially redescribes and for the first time illustrates the species. In his description he refers to the attempt by Linnaeus to describe this fish already in 1766 but dismisses that effort as misleading and confusing.

[TRIMMER, Sarah].

A series of prints of Roman History, designed as ornaments for those apartments in which children receive the first rudiments of their education.

First edition. Sarah Trimmer was an educational reformer, and philanthropist, being particularly interested in the education of the poor. She was a keen advocate of the didactic use of pictures, as exemplified in the present work, which is the third in a series of six series of prints on different topics of world and biblical history, produced in collaboration with the noted publisher of cheap popular prints, John Marshall & Co. An accompanying text volume to each series was also issued. Sold in three states, pre-pasted on to board for display, sewed in marbled paper for the pocket, or bound in red leather, the present copy would seem to be the second variant, rebound on entering Parker’s library.
