Sotheby's: The Celebrated Library of Harrison D. Horblit Esq. - Early Science, Navigation and Travel
O/P. 2 volumes, illustrated, 1974. Part 1 includes book with authors A - C, part 2 includes authors D - G. As far as I can tell, the remaining volumes were not sold by Sotheby's. Horblit had a fabulous collection of books, rich in early fifteenth century science books, early English science books of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and rare books in the field of navigation. Both volumes in very good condition, covers a bit faded and corners a little bumped. (Ref: K5031 - W3)

O/P. Two articles of 13 pages and 10 pages respectively, illustrated, 2003. Two interesting papers, published in two issues of Antiquarian Horology about the famous clockmaker John Holmes. These are the only articles written about Holmes' life and work that I know of. Very good copy, soft covers. (Ref: K5033)

Price: 10.00
