M150F. Mushet, R, Trinities of the Ancients; or, the Mythology of the First Ages, and the Writings of Some of the Pythagorean and other Schools, Examined, with Knowledge of the Trinity Ascribed to Plato and other Ancient Philosophers, 1st edition, John W. Parker 1837, 8vo, recently rebound in dark blue cloth with gilt rules, date and lettering to spine, gilt title label cut from original cloth and laid down, new end papers, earlier marbled end papers also retained, marbled edges, 244pp, bound with: The Trinity of the Gentiles, Egyptian Mythology, a complete article extracted from three issues of Fraser’s Magazine, July – September 1839, 32pp. Mushet presents a striking alternative argument to that of Cory (see item M36AAB) regarding three-fold symbolism in ancient mythology and religion; here bound with a serialised article helpfully comparing both points of view. A remarkable copy, the text interleaved throughout with blank leaves  bound in, of which twenty one have interesting manuscript notes in various inks to one or both sides, sometimes extensive, and with very occasional marginalia to printed pages, and notes to blank verso of the front marbled end paper, all in the same small, neat and legible hand.  Sadly there is no obvious evidence to identify the scholar in question, and unfortunately they do not appear to be in the hand of the author. However, although it cannot be said with absolute certainty, they do appear to be in the hand of the author’s brother William, the dedicatee of the book, a barrister at Gray’s Inn, London, and author of legal books. From the book’s printed dedication, it is clear William strongly supported his brother’s theories on the subject, and if the attribution is correct, probably had this copy rebound for the first time with the additional pages and article c.1840. Edges of text block a little faded, outer edges of the magazine article browned and brittle in places; minor spots or soil marks to the odd margin of the main text, tiny chips to outer edge of front marbled end paper, text clean and tight throughout, overall a very good and externally fresh, unique probable association copy of the scarce first edition £250
