Geneve: Chez Henri-Albert Gosse & Compagnie, 1743. First French edition of Reid’s Abstract of Sir Isaac Newton’s Chronology of Ancient Kingdoms, which first appeared in 1732. Another French abridgement of this Newton work was published in 1725, appearing at the end of Volume VII or Prideaux’s Histoire des Juifs (1725), but that was unauthorized and was the work of another translator. A little light foxing, title-page has some minor chips and one small stain. Still, a very good copy of a scarce work. Modern antique-style calf over marbled boards, gilt spine. Octavo. viii, 124 pp. Item #13818
OCLC lists seven copies of this work, five in North America—including two copies at Berkeley and copies at the University of Chicago, Kent State, and the Burndy Library.
