Typographical antiquities, or, The history of printing in England, Scotland, and Ireland : containing memoirs of our ancient printers, and a register of the books printed by them by Joseph Ames( Book )
in English and held by 165 libraries worldwide
When this work was published, its original author had been dead for fifty years. As the title page explains, the work of Joseph Ames (1687-1759) was considerably augmented by William Herbert (1718-95), and then 'greatly enlarged, with copious notes, and illustrated with appropriate engravings' by Thomas Frognall Dibdin (1776-1847), several of whose other works are also reissued in this series. Ames' history of printing, based on his own collection, was published in 1749, as an aid to booksellers in identifying old works (and modern forgeries). Herbert, a printseller and bibliophile, acquired Ames' own interleaved copy of the work and intended to enlarge it, but died having completed only three of six proposed volumes. His working copies then passed to Dibdin, who eventually published this four-volume edition between 1810 and 1819. Volume 4 considers the lives and work of printers from Reynold Wolfe to Thomas Hacket

"The facts contained in this volume are deeply interesting to the naturalist. They not only elucidate the history of those industrious animals whose properties are the peculiar subject of investigation, but they present some new and singular features in physiology, which have hitherto been unknown, and even unsuspected. The industry of bees has proved a fertile source of admiration in all countries, and in every age, and mankind have unremittingly endeavoured to render it subservient either to their gratifications or emolument. Hence, innumerable theories, experiments, and observations have ensued, and uncommon patience has been displayed in prosecuting the enquiry. But although many interesting peculiarities have been discovered, they are so unaccountably interwoven with errors, that no subject has given birth to more absurdities than investigations into the history of bees; and unfortunately those treatises which are the most easily attained, and at this day, the most popular, only serve to give them a wider range, and to render it infinitely more difficult for the philosophic naturalist to eradicate them. A considerable portion of the following work is devoted to this purpose; and it belongs to the reader to judge of the success which has resulted from the experiments that have been employed"--Preface.
