METIVIER, GEORGES,
Rimes Guernesiaises
0. par un Câtelain. Londres: Simpkin Marshall, Guernesey: E.Barbet, n.d. [c. 1840 - 1850]; [vi], 224 pp. with wood-engraved frontispiece and 14 wood-engraved pictorial head-or tail-pieces; binder's buckram, plainly lettered on the spine; the penultimate page is torn in the margins, with loss of two or three words. Georges Métivier [1790 - 1881], known as "The Guernsey Burns", drew heavily on traditiional and oral material for his poems in the Guernsey patois, but he lived much of his life in exile. In the preface to the edition of his "Rimes guernesiaises" which we are offering, the poet rails against an edition that had been published in Guernsey a few years previously under the same title in his absence, and without his editorial imput or supervision: "L'auteur des RIMES GUERNESIAISES n'habitait plus l'ile lorsque parut, il y a quelques années, un recueil sous ce titre, dans lequel se trouvait introduites plusieurs pièces qui lui sont entièrement inconnues, ces morceaux étant composés dans un patois désagréable, et très-différent du dialecte si expressif, nerveux et sonore, de la gogenarde vingtaine des Carités". Judging by the paper of our edition, and by the style of the wood-engraved illustrations, the book we are offering is from about 1840 - 50; it is therefore probable that the edition from which Métivier wished to disassociate himself, and the dialect and content of which he here corrects, is the 1831 edition usually associated with him and usually seen as having met his approval. A 32-page glossary is included in the pagination. The frontispiece, an illustration to the poem "Lamentations de Damaris", shows figures in front of an old house in Rue de la Fontaine, the street where Métivier was born.

MONTUCLA, J.F., [JEAN ETIENNE, 1725 - 1799)
Histoire Des Mathématiques Dans Laquelle on Rend Compte de Leurs Progrès Depuis Leur Origine Jusqu'à Nos Jours ; Où L'on Expose le Tableau Et le Développement Des Principales Découvertes Dans Toutes Les Parties Des Mathématiques, 4 Volumes , Complete Set
. les contestations qui se sont élevées entre les mathématiciens et les principaux traits de la vie des plus célèbres. Nouvelle édition considérablement augmentée et prolongée jusque vers l'époque actuelle? P. Agasse, An VII/An X; [1799 - 1802 ] 4 volumes in 4, Volume I [2], 8pp. 739pp. 12 folding plates, Volume II (2), 718pp. 14 folding plates Volume III 1 portrait (Montucla), [2], VIII, 832pp. 17 folding plates, volume IV Portrait La Lande[2], 688pp. 2 folding plates, ` Montucla's friends persuaded him to work on a new edition of his famous Histoire des mathématiques.(2 volumes, 1758 ) In August 1799 Montucla published new editions through Agasse in Paris of the two volumes originally published in 1758. Montucla extensively revised and enlarged the two volumes. He had intended to extend his cover of history to the end of the 18th century and part of the third volume on this topic was printed by the time he died, four months after the publication of the new editions of 1799. Lalande, with the help of some other scientists, completed volumes three and four to give the coverage that Montucla had intended. Volume three covered 18th century pure mathematics, optics and mechanics in 832 pages, while the fourth volume covered 18th century astronomy, mathematical geography and navigation. - "Montucla's major work, the first classical history of mathematics, was a comprehensive and, relative to the state of contemporary scholarship, accurate description of the development of the subject in various countries. The account also included mechanics, astronomy, optics and music which were then considered subdivisions of mathematics. The first volume covers the beginnings, the Greeks (including the Byzantines) and the West until the start of the seventeenth century ; the second volume is devoted entirely to the latter century. Montucla originally planned to take his work up to the middle of the eighteenth century in a third volume but could not do so, principally because of the abundance of material. In the second edition, extended to cover the whole eighteenth century, he was able to reach this goal. Much remained unfinished, however, since Montucla died during the printing of the third volume. Lalande, his friend from childhood, assisted by others, completed volumes III (pure mathematics, optics, mechanics) and IV (astronomy, mathematical geography, navigation) and published them in 1802". (DSB IX p. 501) Cajori p. 250 - Honeyman N 3284. In a later half calf binding with shagreen covered boards, green and red leather author/title labels on the spines. calf leather corners. Inside hinges re-enforced with linen strips. Copy with large margins, Volume I: Staining in top margins between page 1 and page 133, smaller at first then getting larger and then becoming less again; leaf 425/426 has a small tear, leaf 423/424 browned and has small hole in margin; small hole in 425/426 due to trimming error by printer/binder. Volume II: some wormholes in outer margins pages up to page 60 , leaf 73/74 stained; Volume III has holes in inner margins of pp. 595-622, this volume has an exceptionally clear text. Volume IV: Staining on pp. 221 - 312, all very small in right hand top margins and also on pp. 526 - 659, but again gradually from small stains to larger and then getting smaller again. We can send some images.

Johann Ristens/ wenig anderer beruemter Reimdichter bestreuet ueber den Gewissenlosen Roschischen Nachdruck hin und wieder verbessert: und mit 46 kuenstlichen Kupferstueken verzieret .. [Two parts in one volume] Frankfurt in Georg Muellers Verlag MDCLXIV [1664]; 12o (c. 5 x 11 cm.); [ii] [xviii], 766, [xviii] pp, with 44 copper-engraved plates, and engraved title-page to Part Two (the pagination is continuous); contemporary binding in dark pink velvet, with traces of a floral pattern, burnished endpapers, and two intricately-worked silver-plated clasps (complete and in full working order), gilt and gauffered edges; covers worn in places, with a few splits, very small brown stain with minute hole on p. 407/8; a very good, very well-preserved copy. A work very popular in its day, offering comfort but also instruction, or comfort usually in the form of instruction, and prayers, for women in whatever situations or tribulations they might experience in a very violent period of German history. It was obviously intended, and used, for devotion and meditation at home rather than in Church. In an informative blog for the University of Pennsylvania Dr Elisabeth Esser Braun, who had donated her copy of the 1708 edtion of this book to the university, refers also to a longer study by Ferdinand van Ingen, "Frauentugend und Tugendexempel . Zum Frauenspiegel des Hieronymus Ortelius und Philip von Zesens Biblischen Frauenportaets", in "Barocker Lust-Spiegel. Studien zur Literatur des Barock", (Amsterdam, 1984). We cannot ascertain whether our edition is the first to contain the additional poems by diverse authors, particularly Johannes Rist [known by some of his contemporaries as "Nordischer Apoll], but the title-page implies it is. The binding, with its 17th century-crafted silver-plated clasps and gauffered edges, is a delightful and uncommon survival. The engravings mostly show women of the Bible, whose lives and example inspire the separate chapters of the text.

A key study of the subject which influenced generation upon generation of antiquaries, scholars, and poets, augmented in this edition, including a long essay (c.250pp.) "Memoires historiques sur la Chasse".Some passages in this particular set have been whitened with chalk, making them a little harder to read but not illegible; we could have had these chalk marks removed but, we surmise that they may have been made in preparing a new edition of the work, and did not wish to detract from its historical and bibliographical value.
