Imprint: London, 1833
Steel engraving, 33.5 x 40 cms, original hand colour, blank verso.
The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge was founded in 1826 with the high-minded aim of making 'useful' information available to self-taught members of the working and lower middle classes. Some of the material was decidedly abstruse, subscribers fell away and the Society was wound up in 1848; however, the series of 209 maps published over a 14 year period from 1829 onwards were highly praised for their superior quality, accuracy and aesthetic appeal and remain an outstanding achievement.

Binding: Hardback
4 vols, 4to. pp. xxv, [ii], 537, [iii], 415-525 [=537, misnum., but 674 in total], [iv]; [viii], 538, [xii]; 579, [xi]; 555, [xi] + portrait frontispiece of Addison, engraved by J. Miller after Kneller, three other plates engraved by Grignion after Hayman, and woodcuts of coins in vol. I, and with further cuts in vol. II. Slight marginal worming in vol. IV. The curious collation in the first volumne is correct; presumably Baskerville commenced work on the work on ĎAncient Medalsí before completing the Haunted House or Poemata, and misjudged the pagination. Contemporary mottled calf, contrasting red and green morocco labels, headcaps and some joints renewed. Armorial bookplate of Edward Southwell Ward (3rd Viscount Bangor, 1790-1857, owner of Castle Ward in Strangford, Co. Down) removed from first volume but present in the remainder.

Aetius of Amida was a physician to the Byzantine Emperor Justinian in the sixth-century AD. His Tetrabiblion is an accurate and important source for earlier medical authorities such as Rufus of Ephesus, Leonides and Oribasius in surgery, Soranus and - via Philumenus - Archigenes in gynecology and obstetrics. The Tetrabiblion also contains the best ancient accounts of diseases of the eye, ear, nose, throat and teeth, and Aetius describes procedures (tonsillotomy, urethrotomy, treatment of hemorrhoids) which are not found elsewhere. In previous Latin editions of this work, the first of which was printed in Basel in 1533, several of the sixteen books were translated by Montanus and several by Cornarius. For this edition the whole work was translated by Cornarius. Aldus printed the first eight books in the original Greek in 1534, but the rest of the work was not printed in the original language until the twentieth-century., Adams A-306; Brunet I, 104.

The mark of Austria had been governed by the Babenburg family since the late tenth century. In 1156 Austria was raised to a Duchy, which is where this decorative genealogical table begins, with Duke Henry. The table closes with the extinction of the Babenburg house, when Duke Frederick was killed in battle by the Hungarians in 1246. A separate branch, top right, illustrates the re-assertion of imperial authority.

The first Valesius edition was editied by Henri de Valois and published in 1636. This edition was published by Henriís brother Adrien, and incorporates new material, the posthumous notes of Henri and the notes of Lindenbrogius. Ammianus was the last great historian writing in Latin, though born in Greek-speaking Antioch in Syria. A pagan army officer, who served under Julian in Persia, the surviving books of Ammianusí history are particularly valuable for his military and political insights into his own times: the reorganisation of the empire under Diocletian; the rise of Christianity under Constantine; the apostacy of Julian; the cataclysmic defeat at Adrianople.
