Full contemporary calf, with gilt decoration and titles to the spine. Owner's bookplate to the inside front board. This copy is a First edition of the Dissertation bound in with a First edition of the preface. (conforming to the ESTC entries for both works). The two title pages are bound in together at the front of the work, then the Preface is presented, followed by the Dissertation. Both works have their errata present. There is an owner's name in ink to the title page of the preface. The two titles show that the dissertation was published by E. Owen, and sold by S. Birt & B. Dod, S. Bathurst, J. Fletcher, W. Thurlbourn & E. Score. The preface was printed for W. Johnston, P. Davey & B. Law. The binding is somewhat rubbed, but holding together well. A little bumping to the corners of the boards. Slight scuffing to the boards. The gilt to the spine is somewhat rubbed but still attractive. There is a little nicking to the head and tail of the spine. Charles Peters [1690-1774] was a Cornish Church of England rector and Hebrew Scholar. Described by Polwhele as "The first Hebrew Scholar in Europe" Presumably meaning foremost! The production of this work is unusual, more in the style of the Seventeenth Century pamphleteers. The Dissertation, first published (as here) in 1751 was critical of William Warburton's work "The Divine Legation of Moses." Warburton responded, and a second edition (revised) was published in 1757. At this point, a lengthy preface was also added to deal with Warburton's comments. This was also published separately. It is this separate Preface offered here. Later (1760) he also published an Appendix, dealing further with Warburton's comments. He dies in 1774 and a volume of his sermons was produced in 1776. Dissertation ESTC: T101677; The preface ESTC: T115570 Lxiii, [i], 1-465, [i]. pp

If so, it came to nothing, as Copac cites only two holdings of this issue, with no others cited.Good clean, but with no wrappers (if any). This was once part of a larger work, and has been removed from this - but was published alone (with price, printers details and colophon here). There is a touch of darkening to the outside pages. Internally clean, with the annotations as described above. This work was published anonymously, and there is no reference on Copac or in bibliographies of anonymous literature to any author. However, the name Richard Mence Esq. is written in a contemporary hand alongside the stated "Country Gentleman" This would certainly fit well. Richard Mence was a Barrister, at Middle Temple, who went on to write about the Law of Libel. He was active in writing at this time, and his dedication in the Law of Libel, was to those who oppose "Disloyal and Seditious Principles" These almost certainly included Catholic Emancipation. With his awareness of Libel laws, he was perhaps wise to remain anonymous! 49 [i]. pp

Director of the 'Ecole de gravure de Genève' (1817-1822). He engraved with Gâtine the illustrations for the series 'Le Bon Genre' published by La Mésangère.

    . Non datée, mais probablement de 1818-1822, cette belle aquarelle de Marie dans le style de Raphaël, bien que non signée a une attribution/provenance sur papier de l'époque légèrement inclinée. Cela indique qu'il a été peint par Schenker et provient d'une collection. Il fut offert par Ferdinand Dupon (?) en souvenir de ses deux petits frères. Bordée de dorure, la peinture est en très bon état, avec seulement quelques petites marques. 110 par 80 mm.

A travaillé pour Bartolozzi en Angleterre et en France. Directeur de l'Ecole de gravure de Genève (1817-1822).
