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.

The Golden Bubble.
0. 1957. Arabian Gulf Documentary. London, Collins, 1957; 255 pp. with frontispiece, map, and 8 photographic illustrations on four plates; publisher's cloth; lacking the dust-wrapper. A very good copy of the first edition, with signed inscription on the title page by the author: "To darling Mary, this Golden Bubble by with and from Roderick Owen, Years later - 1981". ["Mary" is Mary Stanley Smith, an Oxford friend of the author's, to whom he also refers cryptically in the text on page 90: "Mary and her house in Ship Street, and the characters to be encountered there". There is a pencil spelling correction in her hand to a word on page 172 and 194.] A personal account of a prolonged visit to the Persian Gulf in the second half of the Nineteen-Fifties, undertaken specifically to write the book. The places described include Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Abu Dhabi and Dubai, with accounts of encounters with many of the powerful, and of friendships, Arab and British. In Abu Dhabi he hunts with falcons as a guest of Sheikh Shakhbut. An interesting association copy of a rare book.

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.

PASTERNAK, BORIS
Slepaya Krasavitsa.
. London, Collins & Harveill Press, 1969, 78pp. 4to.printed and bound by Rank Xerox. this is the original typescript published by the Harvill Press in a limited edition of only 50 copies, in the original boards covered with brown wrappers, title label. First 17 pages loose.The Blind Beauty (Slepaya krasavitsa), was left incomplete at Pasternak's death; surviving extracts depict Russia's emergence from tyranny to emancipation and enlightment in the late 19th and early 20th century and suggest that the work was conceived as a form of aesopian comment on Stalinist and post-Stalinist Russia and intended as a nineteenth century prologue to his single novel, Doktor Zhivago. the text stops after the 4th chapter. It was published in Russia a few months later in the magazine Prostor [ DR-1]. (ISBN: 0002620529) .

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.

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).

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.
