JUNG-STILLING, JOHANN HEINRICH,
Heinrich Stillings Jugend.
0. 1780. Eine wahrhafte Geschichte.134pp.; WITH: Heinrich Stillings Juenglings-Jahre.188pp.; AND: Heinrich Stillings Wanderschaft. 176pp.; THREE WORKS IN ONE VOLUME, Frankfurt und Leipzig, 1780; with a few wood-cut fleurons and tail-pieces; contemporary German half calf, all edges red; binding rubbed,, particularly at corners, small chip at head of spine, only half of the black leather lettering-piece on spine present, roughly six opening pages of the first work a little embrowned and spotted, otherwise however internally fresh. The first three parts of an autobiographical novel, and all that had appeared to date, although Jung-Stilling was to continue the narrative with "Häusliches Leben" [1789], "Lehrjahre" [1804], and "Alter" [1817]. The absence of a publisher's name and of the phrase "Mit .. Privileg" suggests this edition is a "Raubdruck". a pirate edition which was cashing in on the work's great popularity. Any 18th Century edition, however, is now scarce.

Rare book. No copy of this edition in the British Library. ? Justin was born around 100 (both his birth and death dates are approximate) at Flavia Neapolis (ancient Shechem, modern Nablus) in Samaria (the middle portion of Israel, between Galilee and Judea) of pagan Greek parents. He was brought up with a good education in rhetoric, poetry, and history. He studied various schools of philosophy in Alexandria and Ephesus , joining himself first to Stoicism, then Pythagoreanism, then Platonism, looking for answers to his questions. While at Ephesus, he was impressed by the steadfastness of the Christian martyrs, Justin became a Christian, but he continued to wear the cloak that was the characteristic uniform of the professional teacher of philosophy. His position was that pagan philosophy, especially Platonism, is not simply wrong, but is a partial grasp of the truth, and serves as "a schoolmaster to bring us to Christ." He engaged in debates and disputations with non-Christians of all varieties, pagans, Jews, and heretics. He opened a school of Christian philosophy and accepted students, first at Ephesus and then later at Rome. He was tried before the Roman prefect Rusticus, refused to renounce Christianity, and was put to death by beheading along with six of his students, one of them a woman. A record of the trial, probably authentic, is preserved, known as The Acts of Justin the Martyr.

KANNENGIESZER, E.H.G.,
Sammlung
0. 1821. der in der Koeniglich Grosz= Britannisch= Hannoverschen Gerichten ueblichen Eidesformeln zum Gebrauch fuer Aemter, Stadtobrigkeiten, adeliche= auch Garnison= und Regiments=Gerichte. Dritte verbesserte und sehr vermehrte Ausgabe. Hannover, 1821; 104 pp.; contemporary marbled boards, spine unlettered; cont. name on front blank. Sixteen leaves of contemporary laid paper have been bound in by the first owner, with four further oaths of the same period entered in manuscript, the rest blank. A very rare handbook intended for the use of the judiciary and 'local government' civil servants in the kingdom of Hanover, and also for military trials and court martials, gathered out of the manifold legal and bureaucratic publications in which they were originally to be sought for when needed. Solemnly swearing to carrry out one's duties responsibly appears to have been a condition for being engaged for or appointed to a task or office, and the oaths are often so detailed as to provide unusually real accounts, effectively full job descriptions, of the duties of such village officers as the nightwatchman, the warden of bridges, the tax-gatherer, the turf-moor warden, the "Vogt", the midwife, and so on. The medical profession, doctors, surgeons, apothecaries are equally required to swear specific oaths to carry out their duties responsibly, as is almost anybody serving the public. Ten pages are devoted to "Der Juden-Eid", and revisions thereto; as far as we understand, the authorities seem to be wrestling with the complexity of requiring of a Jewish subject a binding oath, while not expecting him to recognise his God in the Christian God [parts of this text have scattered underlining in contemporary black ink].

KATIN-YARTSEV, M., & A. SHUMKOV (EDS.)
Costume Ball in the Winter Palace. 2 Volumes. (Kostiumirovannyi Bal V Zimnem Dvortse ) Bi-Lingual English-Russian Edition.
. 2003. Volume 1: Album with photographs with biographical references / Al'bom s fotografiiami i biograficheskimi stat'iami. 464pp. 198 photographs, some in colour Volume 2: Research, documents, materials with added notes and a coloured section of the garments worn which moved through various museums in the 1930-ies. Also added a supplement with photographs of the guests at the ball not included in the album as separate pictures. This 2nd volumes is in English only 128pp. Edition of 4000 copies One hundred years ago the office in charge of editing the State papers started work on the creation of a unique album : that of photogravures and photographs of the guests at the costume ball that took place in the winter Palace on 11 and 13 February 1903. The participants all wore 17th century clothing. In the end it was the Empress Alexandra Feodorovna herself who became the editor-in-chief of this album. Only a few copies of the original album survive in libraries and private collections. This edition is not a reprint of that rare 1904 volume, but it is an attempt by the publishers to show the guests of the ball as we see them today, one hundred years later. It is the scene of a bygone era, the last such event in the history of the House of Romanov. Over one hundred photographs have been traced and these have been provided with full biographical details, although many of these notes finish with the lines "fate after 1917 unknown". A number of photographs not included in the 1904 edition have been added here. The main volume contains the photographs with texts in Russian and English. The photographs measuring 140 x 260 mm are magnificent. The 2nd volume, entirely in English, contains the newly found photographs and editorial materials, modern photographs of some of the uniforms, dresses, clothing surviving in some museums in full colours. Fine hardbacks in slip case. forwarding costs vary from country to country, the weight is 6 KG. Please ask for details of shipping (DHL + insurance) before you order. the set is in pristine condition. Many pictures available on our site. NOW OUT OF PRINT.

KEILL, JOHN ( 1671-1721 )
An Introduction to Natural Philosophy Or, Philosophical Lectures Read in the University of Oxford, Anno Dom. 1700
. To which are added, the demonstrations of Monsieur Huygens's theorems, concerning the centrifugal force and circular motion / By John Keill M.D. Savillian Professor of Astronomy, F.R.S.. Translated from the last edition of the Latin. The second edition. London : printed for J. Senex, W. and J. Innys, J. Osborn, and T. Longman, MDCCXXVI [ 1726 ], xii,306pp. :; 8°. Lacks the final advertisement leaf. Inscr. and smudges in ink on title ,name in ink on first page iii of preface. Text quite bright, but with occas. light soiling. P. 69/70 with heavier brown spot on centre right hand sideTitle page frayed at bottom ( see image) , last 40 pp wwith more marginal browning, and somewhat creased in top inside cornersleaf 305/306 with heavier staining , small hole in the centre not affecting the illustration and frayed sat the bottom. 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).

Of great interest in itself as an early practical guide in the field of what would now be classified as kindergarten and pre-school education - drawing heavily on German sources - by an author better remembered for his children's stories, this volume is now mostly sought after because its frontispiece is Kate Greenaway's first published book illustration.
