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.

. [London Oriental Series Vol.33]. Oxford, 1977; xvi, 283pp.; orig. cl. d.w.; short tears in d.w. Apart from the tears in the d.w. an excellent copy, warmly inscribed by the editor in 1977. Edited for the first time from a copy of the unique manuscript, with translation and commentary. An edition and translation of, along with extensive commentary on, the earliest Kirghiz oral traditional epic extant, a poem which "bears witness to a pithy and at times ornate bardic style with well-worn, beautifully structured epithets and other formulae.." (p. 90). Demonstrates that the existing manuscript is a fair copy of a field record made by Valikhanov, documents parallel passages, and includes (Appendix 8, pp. 269-70) remarks by Radlov on oral performance and improvisation. Notes also Parry's debt to Kirghiz oral poetry and to Radlov (1885) in particular. ? Arthur Thomas Hatto, F. B. A. was born in London in 1910 and was educated at Dulwich College (1923-27) and King?s College, London (1927-32). While Lektor für Englisch at the University of Bern he made his edition of a pre-Lutheran German translation of the Apocalypse, for which he was awarded the M. A. with Distinction of London University (1934). From an Assistant Lectureship in German at King?s College (1939), he was appointed Reader (1946), then Professor of German Language and Literature in the University of London (1953) until his retirement (1977). He served as a Governor at the School of Oriental and African Studies, gave the Foundation Day Lecture there (Shamanism and Epic Poetry in Northern Asia, 1970) and was elected an Honorary Fellow (1981).

NEUDA, FANNY [ GEB. SCHMIEDL ]
Stunden Der Andacht. Ein Gebet- Und Erbauungsbuch Für Israels Frauen Und Jungfrauen, Zur öffentlichen Und Häuslichen Andacht, So Wie Für Alle Verhältnisse Des Weiblichen Lebens.
. Prague, Brandeis, n.d. 26th edition , VIII, 176pp. Fanny Schmiedl Neuda (1819-1894).published the first Jewish women¿s prayer book to be written 'by a woman in 1855. In addition to containing formal Jewish worship practices, this work covered both public and private events in the life of a Jewish woman. Fanny Neuda (née Schmiedl, b. March 6, 1819 - d. April 6, 1894) was a Jewish writer best known for her popular collection of prayers, Stunden Der Andacht (1855). She was born in Lomnice (Lobnig), Moravia to the family of Rabbi Yehudah Schmiedl (1776-1855, present-day Czech Republic). After marrying Abraham Neuda (1812-1854), she moved to Loštice, where her husband served as rabbi. After Abraham Neuda's death in 1854, her book of prayers became widely published. She died at the age of 75 years in the spa town of Merano (present-day Italy). In 2015, a plaque honouring her was unveiled in Loshtice. Neuda's collection of Jewish prayers is unique by virtue of its being the first collection of Jewish prayers composed in German by a Jewish woman. Earlier collections of te?innot - petitionary prayers, comprising a growing literature of devotional works for prayer outside of the shul had been authored by Jewish men and less commonly by Jewish women. (See the prayer of Glückel of Hameln (1646-1724) translated by Kaeren Fish in A Jewish Women's Prayer Book (e.d. Aliza Lavie 2008)). After Neuda's work was published in 1855, it attained such great popularity among Jewish women in Central Europe, that it was published in more than 30 editions (some of which were illustrated).1. At least one siddur published by Raphael Jacob Fürstenthal in 1897 appended her complete Stunden Der Andacht to it.

ORTEL, H.,

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.
