Dieffenbach relates the history of scholarly aluusions to a god "Cautopates" being revered in the Roman empire, although there had been scant evidence, and here writes up the unearthing of his image with an inscription during construction work on the railway station in Friedberg. He takes Cautopates to be another name for Mithras, shown on the folding plate with his cap.

FIELDING, HENRY (AND OTHERS)
Examples of the Interposition of Providence
. in the Detection and Punishment of Murder .. with an Introduction and Conclusion both written by Henry Fielding Esq. London, for A. Millar, 1752; 12mo (c. 12.5 x 7.5}; iv, 94pp.; publisher's original unlettered sheep; joints worn, head of spine chipped. Very good copy. The work was intended to reduce and preempt the crime of murder by demonstrating that guilt can't be kept secret and that through the workings of Providence truth will out and guilt be revealed. It draws on various sources, including Nathaniel Wanley's "Wonders of the Little World" (1677), Thomas Beard's "The Theatre of God's Judgments" (1597), and John Reynolds' "The Triumph of God's Revenge..".(1635). and the compression of the narratives, though thought to have been presided over by Henry Fielding, may be by Sarah Fielding or William Young, Henry Fielding's authorship being confined as the title-page states to the introduction and conclusion. The litle work or compendium was priced at "Bound one Shilling, or Ten Shillings a Dozen to those who give them away". It is now very rare.

GEIGER, BENNO,
Alessandro Magnasco.
0. 1914. Berlin, Paul Cassirer, 1914. small folio; xxiv, 76 plates [with 77 illustrations], each preceded by a page of caption; publisher's printed wrappers; a few spots to edges, otherwise a very good copy. Apparently the first attempt ever to unite the scattered oeuvre of this Italian baroque master, reprinting Ratti's LIfe of Magnasco [in Italian] in the prefatory material. For Geiger, the artist puts 'sein unerhoertes, durch die Erfindung lediglich bedingtes Koennen in den Dienst des Ausdrucks; und leitet ueber, vorTiepolo, vor Guardi oder Goya, zu jenem umgepfluegten Erdreich, darinnen wir die Wurzel der modernen Malerei erkennen.'.

GOETHE, JOHANN WOLFGANG VON
Briefwechsel Zwischen Goethe Und Zelter
0. 1833. in den Jahren 1796 bis 1832. Herausgegeben von Dr. Friedrich Wilhelm Riemer. Six volumes, bound in three, Berlin, Verlag von Duncker und Humblot, 1833/1834; each volume approx. 450 pp.; early pebble-grain cloth, spines lettered and ruled in gilt and blind, boards ruled in blind, speckled edges; spines faded, with fading extending onto the boards. A fine set of the first edition of this most important correspondence between Goethe and one of his closest friends. Its provenance is a large private library built up in Travemuende in the course of the 19th Century, now dispersed, for which it appears to have been bound ca. 1850/1860. An apparently blank and unnumbered page has been partially excised after p.362 of Volume IV. The book is nevertheless complete, as we have ascertained by comparing this copy with another copy of the same edition.
