HAZLITT, WILLIAM,
The Life of Napoleon Buonaparte.
0. 1834. London: Printed for Hunt and Clarke, York Street, Covent Garden. 1834; 535, 572, [iv] pp.; half buckram over blue paper-covered boards in style of the original binding (which was brown pebble-grain cloth over blue paper-covered boards), original spine with printed paper label mounted. An excessively rare and apparently unrecorded re-issue or re-printing of Volumes I and II of Hazlitt's "Life of Napoleon" by its original publisher. The title-page, at least, was newly-printed, and like the original printed label on the spine [preserved in this copy] implies the contents comprise a complete text of the biography: there is no mention of "Vol.I" on the title-page, no separately-printed title-page for Volume II, and no suggestion the work might comprise further volumes; the signatures to the separate gatherings, however, mostly bear the indication "Vol. I" or "Vol. II". These first two volumes of the work were first published in 1828, by Hunt and Clarke; but the firm went bankrupt, and Hazlitt himself lost two hundred pounds over its publication. New publishers, Effingham Wilson with Chapman & Hall, published Volumes III and IV in 1830, re-issuing Volumes I & II with new title-pages, giving their own imprint. The copy offered here, however, was apparently marketed four years subsequently by the original publisher and from the old address. The last four pages consist of Hunt and Clarke's advertisements, beginning with Hazlitt's "Notes of a Journey Through France and Italy" and ending with Hone's edition of Strutt's "Sports and Pastimes" ["on the 1st of February .. to prevent disappointment, orders for the large paper edition are particularly requested as early as possible."] Hone's "Sports and Pastimes" came out in 1830, so it seems safe to assume that these four pages of advertisements also date back to the year of the bankruptcy. It remains a mystery for whose benefit this volume was published, with its deceptive title-page suggesting it was the complete work, in one volume; and why it should be so rare.

JOSEPHUS, FLAVIUS,
Historien Und Buecher
0. 1571.. vom juedischen Krieg .. alles aus dem urspruenglichen Griechischen Exemplar .. verteutscht. Two parts in one volume, Frankfurt, 1571; folio; [5ll] including engraved title-page, [1l.] [blank], 348 ll, with 83 large wood-cut illustrations, + 177 ll. with 14 wood-cut illustrations [making 97 woodcuts in all], final leaf with colophon & large printer's device of Georg Raben/und Weygand Hanen Erben; contemporary pigskin dated 1572, decorative brass bosses and holders for the now-lost metal clasps; the pigskin of the front hinge cracked but holding firmly, slanting crack in the skin on the front board, with slight loss of surface, another small surface hole the size of a small coin on front board; pale library stamp on front blank and verso of last page, scattered marginal library stamps (very small)); contents lightly browned, with a stabhole in c. 80 leaves which affectsa few letters. The front board - somewhat darkened - bears the title in capitals, and the date 1572 in a once dyed or painted central panel; the blind-stamped ornament of the boards is clearer on the brighter rear board: it includes panels of acorns, fleurs-de-lys, and small historical portraits. This copy is made particularly interesting by a contemporary full-page manuscript ex-libris in black, red, yellow, and silver with a full-page armorial crest and the name "Johan Tobing her Leonardes Son" painted directly on to the front paste-down. The name of a much later English owner is written neatly in small letters above, in the top margin. The book later passed to Stoke-on-Trent Public Library, who consigned it with other books to auction in 2006. Text in German.

Heinrich Stillings Jugend.
0. 1780. Eine wahrhafte Geschichte.134pp.; WITH: Heinrich Stillings Juenglings-Jahre.188pp.; AND: Heinrich Stillings Wanderschaft. 176pp.; THREE WORKS IN ONE VOLUME, Frankfurt und Leipzig, 1780; with a few wood-cut fleurons and tail-pieces; contemporary German half calf, all edges red; binding rubbed,, particularly at corners, small chip at head of spine, only half of the black leather lettering-piece on spine present, roughly six opening pages of the first work a little embrowned and spotted, otherwise however internally fresh. The first three parts of an autobiographical novel, and all that had appeared to date, although Jung-Stilling was to continue the narrative with "Häusliches Leben" [1789], "Lehrjahre" [1804], and "Alter" [1817]. The absence of a publisher's name and of the phrase "Mit .. Privileg" suggests this edition is a "Raubdruck". a pirate edition which was cashing in on the work's great popularity. Any 18th Century edition, however, is now scarce.

Mauke. ( Corpus apologetarum Christianorum saeculi secundi ; vol. 1-5 ) editio altera. Friederich Mauke, Jena, 1847-1850, second edition, five volumes bound in two, 1786 pp. + 4 facsimiles, size 22 x 14 cm. approx. complete works of the early Christian writer, Justin Martyr, giving parallel texts in Greek and Latin, accompanied by commentary in footnotes. Full calf Leather binding, showing some signs of wear but generally robust, front and rear covers double-ruled in gilt on all four sides with gilt floral ornament in each corner, forming a rectangular panel, further gilt patterning of lines and dots along cover edges; gilt titles on labels on spines, with five raised bands, each having a line of gilt (now somewhat eroded) above and below; head and tail bands intact; cover surfaces have many spots of a darker colour (possibly from old ink stains), also there are scuff marks, particularly on the spines, and there is some wear to the cover corners and edges of both vols. and at head and tail of spine on vol. 2; apart from the upper joint of vol. 2, the joints remain strong; end papers brown; pages edged in pale red along fore-edge and lower-edge, and in brown along upper-edge; front end paper of each volume has bookplate, partly defaced, of Thomas Raffles D.D. L.L.D. (1788-1863, Congregationalist minister) with his coat of arms, partly covered by what appears to be the remains of a bookplate of the Congregational College Library, Manchester, accompanied by the former library shelf mark of "G.9.H"; text is clean and unmarked throughout, apart from slight foxing on just a few pages. Rare book. No copy of this edition in the British Library. ? Justin was born around 100 (both his birth and death dates are approximate) at Flavia Neapolis (ancient Shechem, modern Nablus) in Samaria (the middle portion of Israel, between Galilee and Judea) of pagan Greek parents. He was brought up with a good education in rhetoric, poetry, and history. He studied various schools of philosophy in Alexandria and Ephesus , joining himself first to Stoicism, then Pythagoreanism, then Platonism, looking for answers to his questions. While at Ephesus, he was impressed by the steadfastness of the Christian martyrs, Justin became a Christian, but he continued to wear the cloak that was the characteristic uniform of the professional teacher of philosophy. His position was that pagan philosophy, especially Platonism, is not simply wrong, but is a partial grasp of the truth, and serves as "a schoolmaster to bring us to Christ." He engaged in debates and disputations with non-Christians of all varieties, pagans, Jews, and heretics. He opened a school of Christian philosophy and accepted students, first at Ephesus and then later at Rome. He was tried before the Roman prefect Rusticus, refused to renounce Christianity, and was put to death by beheading along with six of his students, one of them a woman. A record of the trial, probably authentic, is preserved, known as The Acts of Justin the Martyr.

Sammlung
0. 1821. der in der Koeniglich Grosz= Britannisch= Hannoverschen Gerichten ueblichen Eidesformeln zum Gebrauch fuer Aemter, Stadtobrigkeiten, adeliche= auch Garnison= und Regiments=Gerichte. Dritte verbesserte und sehr vermehrte Ausgabe. Hannover, 1821; 104 pp.; contemporary marbled boards, spine unlettered; cont. name on front blank. Sixteen leaves of contemporary laid paper have been bound in by the first owner, with four further oaths of the same period entered in manuscript, the rest blank. A very rare handbook intended for the use of the judiciary and 'local government' civil servants in the kingdom of Hanover, and also for military trials and court martials, gathered out of the manifold legal and bureaucratic publications in which they were originally to be sought for when needed. Solemnly swearing to carrry out one's duties responsibly appears to have been a condition for being engaged for or appointed to a task or office, and the oaths are often so detailed as to provide unusually real accounts, effectively full job descriptions, of the duties of such village officers as the nightwatchman, the warden of bridges, the tax-gatherer, the turf-moor warden, the "Vogt", the midwife, and so on. The medical profession, doctors, surgeons, apothecaries are equally required to swear specific oaths to carry out their duties responsibly, as is almost anybody serving the public. Ten pages are devoted to "Der Juden-Eid", and revisions thereto; as far as we understand, the authorities seem to be wrestling with the complexity of requiring of a Jewish subject a binding oath, while not expecting him to recognise his God in the Christian God [parts of this text have scattered underlining in contemporary black ink].
