MOSCHEROSCH, HANS-MICHAEL,
Wunderliche Und Wahrhaftige Gesichte

An early edition - cf. Dunnhaupt II, pp.1242-3 - of the first part of Moscherosch's adaptation of the "Visions" of Francisco de Quevedo. Among those who contributed prefatory poems are Harsdorffer, Hille, and Rist. The woodcuts first appeared in Wendel Rihels "Narrenspiegel" of 1549. An unusually well-preserved copy.

ORTEL, H.,
Geistlicher Frauen-Zimmer Spiegel
0. 1664. aus alt und neuem Testament/ an vierzig erleuchteten Frauen in schoenen und lieblichen Geschichten / nutzlichen Erinnerungen/ andaechtigen Gebeten/ und Himmelauffliegenden Herzenseufzern weiblichem Geschlecht zum Schaz der Gottseligkeit vorgestellet durch Hieronimus Orteln/ von Augsburg. welchen neulichst M. Jacob Behme/ Pfarrer in Zweinitz verbessert: der anizo mit seel-erquikenden Bluemlein meistzenteils des woledlen /u. 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.

LA CURNE DE SAINTE-PALAYE
Memoires Sur L'ancienne Chevalerie
0. 1781. consideree comme un etablissement politique et militaire. Nouvelle edition, augmentee d'un volume. Three volumes, Paris, 1781; xii, 391, 320, xvi, 456pp.; cont. light green paper-covered boards, spines simply decorated with gilt rules and bay-leaves, gilt meander rule to boards, yellow silk markers; spines faded & rubbed at head and tail, with loss of green paper, extremities also rubbed, including corners (mostly just the tips), small typographical bookplates of Otto A. Hirth, very small 19th. C. oval lib. stamp at foot of title-pages. 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. Rare.

PEEL, FRANK,
The Risings of the Luddites
0. 1888. Chartists, and Plugdrawers. Second Edition. Heckmondwyke, 1888; 354pp. with frontispiece and plate; publisher's red cloth, spine lettered in gilt and blind-tooled; spine a little faded and marked, boards very slightly marked, bookplate. A scarce and classic compilation from local sources and witnesses. This second edition is stated by the author in his preface to be twice the size of the first; but "In my search for additional information I was scarcely astonished to find that nearly all the old people I interviewed ten years before had passed away". The bookplate in this copy indicates that it was originally owned by a merchant in Hamburg.

Der Nibelungen Noth
0. 1843. Illustrirt mit Holzschnitten nach Zeichnungen von Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld und Eugen Neureuther. Die Bearbeitung des Textes von Dr. Gustav Pfizer. Stuttgart & Tuebingen, Cotta, 1843; "4to" [c. 29 x 21.5 cm].; [viii], 430, [ii] pp.; contemporary half finely-ribbed diamond-patterned cloth over plain boards; edges and extremities worn, with slight, inconspicuous loss on hinges,two or three small stains to front board, spotting to pp. [i] - [viii], and very occasional odd further spots (a few on top edge),, marginal embrowning to contents, with a slight indentation in extreme edge of top margins of ca. 40 pp.some pages unopened. First edition of one of the major works of German Romantic book illustration, the text printed throughout within a scrolled rule border, with decorative initials, marginal illustrations, and ornaments incorporated in the text as well as half-page and full-page illustrations. Schnorr took over six of his own designs for his Nibelungen frescoes in the new Muenchener Residenz for this work (hence the printed dedication to King Ludwig of Bavaria) and added new designs and decorations: all are strongly in the tradition established by Peter von Cornelius in a series of etchings published in 1817. This work is widely celebrated, and features in major exhibitions on German illustration of the period, including "Die Kunst der Illustration", Wolfenbuettel, 1986-7, No. 24 (p.59 of the catalogue).

PILKINGTON, M.,
A Dictionary of Painters
0. 1805. from the Revival of the Art to the Present Period. A New Edition, with Considerable Alterations, Additions, an Appendix, and an Index, by Henry Fuseli, R.A. London, 1805; 4to; xx, [ii],, 694, [xx] pp.; contemporary half calf, spine gilt in compartments, red morocco lettering piece, marbled boards; corners rubbed, spine and front hinge a little rubbed, a few preliminary pages bound in the wrong order but complete; a good and handsome copy. Pilkington dedicated the original edition of his Dictionary to the President and Council of the Royal Academy. This is the first edition of Fuseli's edition, containing many new biographical articles, and a short additional Preface. Fuseli revised and expanded this 1805 edition in a new edition five years later. The editorship and additions by Fuseli, a leading exponent of English, or rather of European Romantic painting, as well as a scholar of Fine Art, make this an invaluable work.

SHAKESPEARE, WILLIAM,
The Plays
0. 1825. in Nine Volumes. EIGHT volumes only [of nine], London, William Pickering, Chancery Lane, 1825; approx. 3.1 ins x 1.7 ins; each volume c. 300 pp. with 33 copper-engraved plates, and a few wood-engraved circular vignettes; contemporary maroon morocco, spines panelled in gilt with raised bands, lettered in gilt with the titles of the plays within one of the panels. triple gilt rule to boards, all edges gilt; several plates slightly or marginally embrowned, a few more than the others, text clean; Volume I lacks general title (discarded by the binder); Volume III lacks the final leaf (the last two pages of "A Winter's Tale"), title-page of Vol.IX long ago mended with neat stitching; bindings a little rubbed at extremities, a little darkened, bottom corner of rear board of Volume III scratched; generally very attractive in its miniature morocco binding, though a little used, and internally clean, but missing Volume II as well as the one leaf of Volume III. Spielman 456. "The illustrated edition of the Pickering Shakespeare is rare in itself as only a small number of the sets was issued with the engraved frontispieces". He quotes Sheringham, writing in "The Connoisseur" [Nov. 1902]: "The plates of the Shakespeare in particular, 38 in number, were all lost, and the later copies of course are without them." The plates were engraved after Thomas Stothard - except for that of Puck, which is after Sir Joshua Reynolds' already celebrated painting.Since there are usually four plates in each of our volumes, we guess that our Volume IX, with only three plates, may be short of one plate.
