BROWN, MICHELLE P., (COMMENTARY)
The Holkham Bible Picture Book. 2 Volumes.
. Over 150 pictures painted with exquisite tinted washes forms an entirely unique picture bible and creates a fascinating view of a medieval artist's personal devotion. Half bound in blue leather with buckram sides printed with diaperwork pattern. Separate leather title label blocked with a design by David Eccles in gold, red and blue. Gilded on all three edges, with a ribbon marker. Printed on Swiss made Furioso paper. Presented together with the Commentary volume by Professor Michelle P. Brown in a buckram bound solander box with a leather title label. Over 150 images, 84 manuscript pages. Book size: 11" x 8". A unique manuscript, recreated in all its original glory in an exclusive facsimile edition limited to 1,750 numbered copies. 'If I make it true and God grants me life, never will you see another such book'. The artist's opening prayer has been triumphantly realised: he has brought popular scenes from the Bible to life in a manner that had never been achieved before nor has been since. Dramatic composition, delicate colouring and a humorous personal touch combine to make this a unique vision of the Bible and of the medieval age which produced it. The Holkham Bible abounds with details from the medieval world, A picture of medieval London , from new developments in technology (a jointed visor, ships depicted with innovatory rudders and bow sprits) to familiar London landmarks in the Middle Ages. The centre of medieval manuscript production was Paternoster Row, beneath the spire of St Paul's (the medieval cathedral spire was taller than Wren's dome), and this is depicted by the artist when the devil tempts Christ to throw himself from the temple. Immediately afterwards Satan takes Christ to a high place, which seems to be the earliest depiction of Hampstead Heath with its newly acquired windmill. The entire book hums with the hubbub of city life, but underneath this delight in bustle runs a sincere dion that reminds the viewer of the enormous appetite for and popularity of sermons, miracle plays and religious frescoes among medieval audiences. Instead of gilding in silver and gold, the artist has chosen to use a form of tinted wash which was popular in earlier manuscripts, but had almost disappeared in favour of heavier ornamentation. The subtlety and naturalistic poses are more reminiscent of the developments in fresco painting which were sweeping Italy than of the stylised figures of medieval illumination. The depiction of drapery, textiles and clothing throughout the manuscript is exceptionally well realised, and there are unusual diamond patterned backgrounds (known as diaperwork) with figurative flowers and oak leaves painted in red. In her Commentary, Professor Michelle P. Brown raises some fascinating suggestions, noting similarities to the needlepoint opus anglicarum for which London was famous. The artist uses time lapsed compositions to enhance the dramatic nature of his story û rather as a film storyboard might do. He frequently conflates events into a single image for dramatic impact and to provide a wealth of naturalistic detail. Hence in the depiction of the Creator, overleaf, elements of the third, fifth and sixth days of the creation are presented as it were simultaneously, producing a sumptuous array of birds, beasts and bushes. Words have clearly been added after the painting was finished the reverse of the normal method of manuscript production. Instead of classical Latin, the captions are written in Anglo Norman, with a strong 'franglais' flavour, since English words and phrases occasionally slip in. This provides Michelle Brown with clues to unravel the secret of the book's making in her Commentary. The artist seems to bring a strongly individual approach to which scenes he chooses to paint. Rather than following any known existing model, he combined a mixture of sources: Scripture, entertaining details from the mystery plays, episodes from an Anglo Norman account of Christ's childhood, and Petrus Comestor's influential twelfth century Historia Scholastica. This mixture gives us such appealing scenes as Christ playing on sunbeams as a child and God telling Noah to hurry up with the Ark so that he is forced to finish the top section in wicker rather than wood. There are moments, almost Chaucerian in their bawdy comedy, designed to appeal to a less than 'aristocratic' audience Jesus tricks his master by doing all his work with a miracle and Herod peeps down Salome's skirt as she stands on her hands, her dance turned into a tumbling acrobatic display.

CURETON , W., [IGNATIUS, BISHOP OF ANTIOCH, SAINT, MARTYR, C.35-C.107. ]
Corpus Ignatianum: A Complete Collection of the Ignatian Epistles Genuine, Interpolated, and Spurious; Together with Numerous Extracts from Them, As Quoted By Ecclesiastical Writers Down to the Tenth Century; in Syriac, Greek, and Latin :
. an English translation of the Syriac text, copious notes, and introduction, by William Cureton. London, Francis and John Rivington, 1849, [4], xvii, lxxxvii, [2], 365, [2] pp.; double-page pl. of Syriac mss. drawn by Harrietta Cureton, lithographed in red & black; size 26 x 17 cm. text in Syriac, Greek, Latin and English. Robust and elegant full dark brown calf leather binding, with some mottled lighter patches and a few scuff marks; front and rear covers each blind-ruled with double lines to form one main central panel, narrower panels along all four sides, and four corner panels, each corner with blind stamped floral ornament; spine with title in gilt on red leather title label , four raised bands with blind stamped floral ornaments between them; the top 5 cm. of the spine has at some time been neatly repaired and strengthened, though the repair material now covers the place where a fifth raised band was originally positioned; lower part of spine has a former library shelfmark in small white numerals on black background ("2.81.3"); head and tail bands; lower rear hinge has a small split, pages edged in red; marbled end papers; pasted on to the front endpapers are bookplates of Thomas Hodgkin (1831-1913, a prominent Quaker and historian) and the Woodbrooke Library (a Quaker institution in Birmingham), with a label indicating that the Woodbrooke Library received the volume from the library of Dr. Hodgkin on 12 November 1913; apart from foxing of a few pages at the beginning and end of the book, and neat pencilled notes in the margins of about ten pages, the text is clean and unmarked. Very scarce. An important date in the Ignatian controversy was the year 1845, when Canon Cureton published a Syriac version of the epistles to St. Polycarp, the Ephesians, and the Romans. The three epistles contained in this version appear in a much shorter form than is found in the Greek text and Latin version. A fragment of the epistle to the Trallians is incorporated in the epistle to the Romans, but none of the other epistles appear in the collection. The text of Cureton's edition was based upon two MSS. in the British Museum. The former of these two MSS. dates from the sixth century. It was purchased by Archdeacon Tattam from the convent of St. Mary Deipara in the Nitrian desert in 1839. The second MS. dates from the seventh or eighth century, and was brought from Egypt by Archdeacon Tattam in 1842. Cureton maintained that these three epistles alone represented the genuine Ignatius, that the Vossian collection contained these three in an interpolated form, and that the remaining four letters of the Vossian collection were forgeries. This rekindled the controversy. Dr. Christopher Wordsworth, afterwards Bishop of Lincoln, declared the newly-discovered version to be an epitome of the genuine letters made by an Eutychian heretic. This led Cureton to a fuller treatment of the question. He had meanwhile discovered an additional MS. of the three epistles, brought, like the first-named, from the convent of St. Mary Deipara, and dating from at least the ninth century. He now published his great work Corpus Ignatianum (London, 1849), which contains a full treatment of the whole question. Cureton's view was supported by Bunsen and several eminent scholars. But it has failed to hold its ground. Apart from the fact that the seven letters of the Vossian collection were plainly known to Eusebius and Theodoret, they exhibit a perfect unity of authorship and style throughout. Cureton's theory requires us to suppose that the interpolator was able to reproduce in his additions to the letters the most subtle characteristics of language and grammar. A similar difficulty occurs when we examine the relation of Cureton's Syriac version to the Syriac version of the seven letters. The one is plainly derived from the other, and it is far more probable that the Curetonian Syriac version is an abridged form of the Syriac version of the seven letters, than that the latter is an expansion of the former. Epistle to Polycarp, to the Ephesians and to the Romans: on the left opening Cureton's restored Greek text at the head with the shorter and longer recensions in parallel, on the right the Syriac from his ms a at the head with the longer and shorter Latin versions. For the epistle to the Magnesians, Trallians, Philadelphians and Smyrnians: the shorter and longer Greek recensions on the left, the longer and shorter Latin on the right. Fragments of `Other Ignatian epistles, not mentioned by Eusebius' include epistles from and to Maria Cassobolita, to the Tarsians, to the Antiochians, to Hero the Deacon and to the Philippians, in parallel Greek and Latin; to John Apostle and Evangelist I-II and to S. Mary the Virgin, in Latin only. -- Testimonies respecting St. Ignatius, and extracts from the Ignatian epistles as cited by various authors down to the tenth century, p. [158]-195 -- Passages from the Ignatian epistles, and extracts from various writers respecting St. Ignatius, in Syriac, p. [196]-225 -- English translation from the Syriac, p. [226]-55 -- Excerpta Ignatiana Aethiopice, p. [256]-62, Ethiopic and Latin on facing pages -- Notes, p. [263]-363, with Syriac text of the Epistle to the Tarsians, obtained by the British Museum in 1847, p. 363-65. [ DR - 3 ].

LEE, SAMUEL,
New Testament in Syriac
. The text, written in Estrangela script, is pointed according to the Eastern Syriac system of vocalisation (similar in concept to the pointing of the Hebrew Masoritic text). The text of the frontspiece reads: New Testament, i.e. the book of the Holy Gospel of Our Lord and Our God, Jesus Christ. The 5 lines of the sub-script read: It was printed in London, a city fortified by God that is the metropolis of the land of England. And through the expenses of men believing in Jesus Christ who partook/participated in the printing of holy books for themselves and also for foreigners. This book was printed for the sake of the eastern Syriac believers in Jesus Christ. And it was emended according to old Syriac manuscripts in the year 1816 of Our Lord. The reference to "for themselves and also for foreigners" indicates that the book was published through the auspices of the British and Foreign Bible Society The University Library, Cambridge catalogue lists a New Testament that was published in 1816 by R. Watts for the British and Foreign Bible Society. The earliest Syriac script is called Estrangela, and the name is derived from the Greek word strongulos meaning 'rounded'. In a contemp. panelled full calf binding rebacked at a later date with a title label.
¶ SAMUEL LEE was born May 14th, 1783. Syriac was the seventh language for Samuel Lee. He learned it through a project he did for the British and Foreign Bible Society . He was commissioned to produce a Syriac New Testament for the Malabar Syriac Archbishop and his diocese. It was published in 1816 when Lee was 33 years of age. It was the beginning a great scholarly career. He produced twenty three major publications. Three of these works were specific contributions to Syriac studies: the Syriac New Testament, the Syriac Old Testament, and Eusebius’ Theophania.

LUTHER, MARTIN
Biblia Germanica (1545)
. Facsimile edition according to Luther`s original Bible of 1545. 1552pp. fine facsimile reprint , hardback in slip case. No other German book has exercised for centuries such a profound effect on the German language as the German Bible of Martin Luther. Over time other German translations appeared, and in the present we see an almost bewildering abundance of new translations, but the Luther Bible launched the progression of the German language. In addition, the Luther text set binding standards for dealing with the biblical word. The output is one column set, with the exception of the Psalter and the Proverbs of Solomon, which are in two columns. This print is a replica of the 1545 Luther Bible, of which only two originals are left. This replica maintains the numerous wood cuts, headings, and explanatory notes of Luther. // Luthers Deutsche Bibel, Ausgabe letzter Hand von 1545. Der vorliegende Band ist eine faksimilierte Handausgabe in Frakturschrift nach dem im Besitz der Deutschen Bibelgesellschaft befindlichen Originaldruck; einspaltig. Mit zahlreichen Initialen und Holzschnitten des Meisters MS, an deren Gestaltung Luther selbst mitgewirkt hat.

[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.

VETUS TESTAMENTUM
He Palaia Diatheke Kata Tous Hebdomekonta = Vetus Testamentum Ex Versione Septuaginta Interpretum : Juxta Exemplar Vaticanum Ex Editione Holmesii Et Lamberti Bos. Editio Nova
. Londini : In ædibus Valpianis. Venit apud Longman et soc.; Baldwin et soc.; Whittaker et soc.. [& 4 other firms], [1829?] [3] 908pp. COPAC DESCRIBES AS FOLLOWS: An edition of the Sixtine text [originally published Rome, 1587], reprinted apparently from the editions of L. Bos [publ. Franequerae, 1709] and Holmes-Parsons [publ. Oxonii, 1798-1827]. The title is not dated. Horne and others give the date as 1819; if this is correct, the editor .. cannot have used more than the first two volumes of the Holmes-Parsons edition, since the third appeared in 1823 .. The book seems to have been reissued more than once, and certainly some copies are later than 1819" (D. & M.) Reference: Darlow & Moule 4791. The first 6 words of the title are in Greek script. This issue included advertisement for the Classical Journal for June 1829, as "just published", so probably was published in that year. Contents: p. [i]-iv, title-page and list of books; p. [1]-905, Greek text (printed in 2 columns, without notes);, the advertisements, pp. 907-908 are missing. Other Names: Bos, Lambert, 1670-1717, Holmes, Robert, 1748-1805. In full red calf leather binding, finely gilt-decorated on spine and boards. Gilt edges all around. 4 lines written in ink on f.e.p. and one line on last blank. First 4 pp. foxed, leather of the corners and top/bottom spine rubbed. Altogether a fine copy of this rare edition. Our copy: [4] 905pp. lacks the 2 pages with adverts, [ DL I/3 ].
