MacDonald, along with his ink ownership signature. As is.. FIRST EDITION of Oudendorp’s presentation of Appuleius’ Metamorphoses, with notes and commentaries. “One of the best editions of Apuleius is that published at Leyden, in 4to. in 1786” (Dict. Univ. Hist. Crit. et Bibl. t. i., p. 442). “La meilleure édition des Métamorphoses d’Apulee” (Moss, p. 84). “Ruhnkenius has favoured us with a preface to this volume, which ranks among the completest of the Variorum quarto classics. The entire works of Colvius, Wower, Godeschalcus, Stewechius, Elmenhorst, and others, are inserted in it, and the judicious observations of Casaubon and Pricaeus have not been neglected. There are various readings from nine Mss. which occasionally differ from those selected by preceding critics” (Dibdin). PROVENANCE: Duncan Black MacDonald (1863-1943) “was an American Orientalist. He studied Semitic languages at Glasgow and then Berlin, before teaching at the Hartford Theological Seminary in the United States. His main scholarly interest was Muslim theology, which led him to the study of the One Thousand and One Nights, as he believed that the Nights stories reflected the Muslim popular piety” (Wiki.pedia).

The Endeavour Journal of Joseph Banks 1768-1771. Edited by J. C. Beaglehole., BANKS, Joseph (1743-1820).
6 BANKS, Joseph (1743-1820). The Endeavour Journal of Joseph Banks 1768-1771. Edited by J. C. Beaglehole.
[Sydney]: Public Library of New South Wales, 1963. 
Second edition. 2 volumes. 8vo. xxvii, [1], 476; xvi, [2], 406 pp. 4 maps (one folding), 10 + 6 color plates, 40 + 40 plates, 6 illus., index. Original rouge gilt-stamped cloth, dust-jackets; vol. II. jacket with edge tear. Very good. “Appointed as the expedition’s official botanist, a 25-year-old Joseph Banks travelled on Captain Cook’s first great voyage to the South Pacific in 1768. After landing on the island of Tahiti, Banks was soon to become an invaluable member of the crew by virtue of the friendly relations he struck up with the islanders; a mutual trust he built up through his openness, natural curiosity and fascination with their customs and way of life. In his willingness to learn their language, eat their food, sleep in their huts, record their customs and partake in their rituals, Banks was pioneering a new kind of science – that of ethnology. As the weeks progressed his botanical observations increasingly gave way to a study of the people (“studies” that were not always at arm’s length!). His experiences in his three month stay on the island are recorded in his Endeavour Journal. The journal is unique in character, not merely in terms of its content but also, as the writer Richard Holmes comments, “for their racy style, appalling spelling and non-existent punctuation.” ¶ “The Endeavour's stay in a wide, shallow bay south of the present day Sydney from 28 April to 5 May 1770, yielded so many previously unrecorded specimens to Bank's botanical collections that Cook named the area 'Botany Bay'.”
