HOFFMANN, HEINRICH,
Bastian Der Faulpelz.
0. Eine Bildergeschichte fuer Kinder.c.24.5 x 18 cm.; 2 - 24 pp. each with half-page hand-coloured illustration and letterpress verse text, all within a plain ruled border; twentieth-century canvas-backed marbled paper-covered boards; lacking the title-page and the first page, the second page torn with loss to margin and border and mounted on paper, very small marginal loss to last page also, which is mounted on paper too, some spots and finger-marks, two closed tears, but contents generally clean or fairly clean. Heinrich Hofmann, beside his profession of doctor and psychiatrist, was the author of many children's books, including "König Nussknacker" and "Der Struwelpeter". This is one of his most ingenious illustrated stories in verse, a cautionary tale about the importance of learning to read, and the dire consequences for its hero, Bastian, of not trying to. One day when he is playing truant, his dreams are interrupted by a succession of strange people who embody and display the letters of the dreaded word "Faulpelz" ("Lazybones"). He ignores their warnings. Hoffmann believed in teaching children by example, not by precept, which is why his characters so often live out the consequences of their conduct or misconduct to their bitter end. In this tale he is obviously also taking the opportunity to teach his audience some of the alphabet at the same time. Since our copy lacks the title-page (as well as page 1), we have taken the title for cataloguing purposes from another source. We believe this is the edition published in Frankfurt by the Literarische Anstalt, probably between c.1860 and c.1870, the illustrations being coloured by hand. Colour facsimiles of the two missing pages are loosely inserted at the beginning of the volume, which has been restored at some time with great care, and bound using hand-marbled paper for the boards.

Elizabeth Jennings Elizabeth Joan Jennings, poet, born July 18 1926; died October 26 2001. Elizabeth was born in Boston, Lincolnshire, England in July 18, 1926. Her father was a respected Chief Medical Officer who moved the family to Oxford when she was six years old. She later discovered poetry while attending the Oxford high school. After attending St Anne's College, Oxford, Elizabeth became a librarian at Oxford city library. Having more time to focus on her writing she published her first collection of poetry (1953) which drew the attention of Robert Conquest. Mr. Conquest would later publish her work with the likes of famous authors Kingsley Amis, Philip Larkin, Thom Gunn and others in his 1956 - - New Lines Anthology - - , which would later become known as - - The Movement - - . Throughout the 1960's, Elizabeth was one of the most popular poets in England. She never married and published a great number of works. Elizabeth once said, "I write fast and revise very little. A street in North Oxford has now been named after. We are certain she would not have approved. THIS IS ONE OF THE FEW COPIES THE AUTHOR SIGNED, IT IS MARKED D .

The name of a much later English owner is written neatly in small letters above, in the top margin.

The ornaments are those used by Henry Woodfall. Illustrated with numerous engravings and diagrams. Keill, John 1671-1721, mathematician and astronomer, was born in Edinburgh.. He was the deputy to Dr. Millington, Sedleian professor at Oxford, and seems to have joined Christ Church (ib. ii. 26). His lectures were from the first highly successful. They were printed in 1701 under the title "Introductio ad Veram Physicam " and became well known on the continent. Halley is said to have pointed out numerous errors in the first edition, but in a friendly manner. (ib. i. 90). The book was first published in Latin in 1701 Two additional lectures and many corrections were introduced into the second edition, published at Oxford in 1705. Other editions appeared in London in 1715, and at Cambridge in 1741. In a translation into English, published in 1736, Maupertuis, who suggested the venture, appended his theory of the ring of the planet Saturn. The "Introductio" was considered Keill"s "best performance" and it was generally welcomed as an excellent introduction to the "Principia" of Newton He was much Newton's client in the priority dispute with Leibniz. One of few Newton supporters with High Church patronage he was crucial in fighting Cartesianism and mechanical thinking, stating natural theology should be subordinated to the Scripture. His lectures were well regarded with the first translation into English. In a new polished cloth binding with the central leather panel of trhe original binding preserved and recessed in the front board (see image).
