London: Printed for Humphrey Mosely, at the Prince's Armes in St. Paul's Churchyard, 1659. FIRST EDITION. Ex-libris, withdrawn (rather bad form by Harvard as it was originally bequeathed in 1875 by James Walker, DD, a former president of the college, whose plate remains on the front pastedown); rebound in plain brown cloth; much foxing, browning and other discoloration throughout the text but collates complete without textual loss. Last three leaves very browned and near detached. [vi], 300 pages with twenty figures of an esoteric nature and collates as complete. Wing F1391. With special title page at beginning of the second section. A translation of the Philosophia Moysaica and considered a true rarity. In plain brown cloth, quarto. A GOOD COPY, but must emphasize the fragility of this volume and the care needed to preserve it. (Item ID: 12757)
