GRUPPE, O.F.,
Antaus.
0. 1831. Ein Briefwechsel ueber spekulative Philosophie in ihrem Conflict mit Wissenschaft und Sprache. Berlin, in der Nauckschen Buchhandlung, 1831; xii, 467pp.; nineteenth century half morocco, raised bands, cloth boards, marbled endpapers; front hinge slightly worn, contents browned, a few light marginal pencil strokes, rather tightly bound. First Edition. Gruppe's magnum opus, which aroused huge attention when it appeared. It argues that the purpose of philosophical investigation is to advance research, not to devise elaborate systems, and that it should be based on experience, not on metaphysical introspection. Unsurprisingly, it was closely read, and in particular, and equally unsurprisingly, aroused the wrath of the Hegel school. Nevertheless, it is now a rare book.

GUIZOT, F.P.G.,
Discours Academiques
0. suivis des discours prononcés pour la distribution des prix au concours generale de l'Université et devant diverses sociétés réligieuses, et de trois essais de philosophie littéraire et politique. Paris, Didier, 1861; iv, 424 pp.; contemporary morocco-backed marbled boards, spine lettered in gilt with raised bands; corners a little worn, short, barely visible split to front joint, edges minimally rubbed, slight foxing, mostly confined to first few pages and last gatherings. Signed presentation copy of the first edition of this collection of papers, some of which date back as far as the eighteen-twenties. The three essays which follow the addresses are on "Encyclopédie" - 58 pages including a well-researched historical bibliography of encyclopedias published in Europe - "Abrégé", and "Élections" (on political elections, c. 40 pp.). This copy was inscribed, signed and given as a birthday present to the English woman of letters Charlotte Mary Yonge. author of family and historical novels and of children's books, popular educator, and devout Anglican. It's possible that the blue silk bookmark, now at page 223, the beginning of an address to the "Société Biblique Protestante" on 30th April 1851, was left there by her or by the author. Several further addresses concern religious instruction or education. A very attractive association copy, which documents an Anglo-French friendship, and is itself a document of French history as well as of Victorian history.

With a signed dedication by the author to Dr. Rudolf Buri dated Jena, 4.8.1894. First Edition! Ernst Heinrich Haeckel (1834-1919), prominent German biologist, zoologist, and philosopher. He studied medicine and natural philosophy at Würzburg, Berlin, and Vienna, and became professor of zoology, Jean (1865-1908). He is famous for his work on a number of scientific expeditions to Canary Islands (1866-67), Red Sea (1873), Ceylon (1881-82), Java (1900-01), among others. Haeckel was the first German advocate of organic evolution and early supporter of Darwin and evolution. Haeckel enunciated biogenetic law that in the development of the individual animal the stages in the evolutionary history of the postulating species are repeated, postulating as illustration a hypothetical ancestral form (gastraea) represented by the gastrula stage of the individual; first to draw up a genealogical tree relating the various animal orders. His works include Monographie der Radiolaren (1862), Generelle Morphologie der Organismen (1866), Naturliche Schopfungsgeschichte Anthropogenie order Entwicklungsgeschichte (1868), des Menschen (1874), Studien zur Gastraeatheorie (1877), Monismus als Band zwischen Religion und Wissenschaft (1892), and Weltratzel (1899).

HAKER, RICHARD STRUVE,
Hoelderlin.
0. 1942. Tribut einer Ehrfurcht. Bogota, 1942; 124 pp. with frontispiece portrait; 23 x 18 cm.; publisher's printed wrappers reproducing the same portrait as the frontispiece; largely unopened; neat repair to verso of wrapper. A very rare tribute to Hoelderlin published by in war-time exile. The first part of the book (about half the contents) narrates "Hoelderlin's Leben", in prose. The second part consists of "Sonette und Balladen" by Haker on Hoelderlin-related themes. This work was printed, in Colombia, at the end of 1942, in anticipation of the 100th anniversary of Hoelderlin's death. To quote the blurb on the wrapper: " Sie erinnert an das Ewige des Deutschtums, an das, was alle Zeiten und Alle fluechtigen Wechsel uebedauert: an das, was man die unsterbliche Seele des deutschen Volkes nennen koennte. In der biographischen Skizze findet der Leser sich unter deutschen Menschen, in den Versen erscheinen ihm alle die seelischen Zuege deutschen Wesens, die uns als wertvoll und als unverlierbar gelten .. Solche deutsche Art, wie sie Hoelderlin kennzeichnet, wuerde in unseren Tagen unter gleich tragischem Stern stehen, und so mag es wohl geschehen, dass ein jeder von uns in diesem Dichterleben ein wenig seines eigenen Lebens, seiner eigenen Wuensche, Hoffnungen und Enttaeuschungen wiederfindet ..".

HATTO, A.T. [ED.],
The Memorial Feast the Memorial Feast for Kokotoy-Khan (Kokotoydun Asi): A Kirghiz Epic Poem
. [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).

HAZLITT, WILLIAM,
The Life of Napoleon Buonaparte.
0. 1834. London: Printed for Hunt and Clarke, York Street, Covent Garden. 1834; 535, 572, [iv] pp.; half buckram over blue paper-covered boards in style of the original binding (which was brown pebble-grain cloth over blue paper-covered boards), original spine with printed paper label mounted. An excessively rare and apparently unrecorded re-issue or re-printing of Volumes I and II of Hazlitt's "Life of Napoleon" by its original publisher. The title-page, at least, was newly-printed, and like the original printed label on the spine [preserved in this copy] implies the contents comprise a complete text of the biography: there is no mention of "Vol.I" on the title-page, no separately-printed title-page for Volume II, and no suggestion the work might comprise further volumes; the signatures to the separate gatherings, however, mostly bear the indication "Vol. I" or "Vol. II". These first two volumes of the work were first published in 1828, by Hunt and Clarke; but the firm went bankrupt, and Hazlitt himself lost two hundred pounds over its publication. New publishers, Effingham Wilson with Chapman & Hall, published Volumes III and IV in 1830, re-issuing Volumes I & II with new title-pages, giving their own imprint. The copy offered here, however, was apparently marketed four years subsequently by the original publisher and from the old address. The last four pages consist of Hunt and Clarke's advertisements, beginning with Hazlitt's "Notes of a Journey Through France and Italy" and ending with Hone's edition of Strutt's "Sports and Pastimes" ["on the 1st of February .. to prevent disappointment, orders for the large paper edition are particularly requested as early as possible."] Hone's "Sports and Pastimes" came out in 1830, so it seems safe to assume that these four pages of advertisements also date back to the year of the bankruptcy. It remains a mystery for whose benefit this volume was published, with its deceptive title-page suggesting it was the complete work, in one volume; and why it should be so rare.

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.
