Historien Und Buecher
0. 1571.. vom juedischen Krieg .. alles aus dem urspruenglichen Griechischen Exemplar .. verteutscht. Two parts in one volume, Frankfurt, 1571; folio; [5ll] including engraved title-page, [1l.] [blank], 348 ll, with 83 large wood-cut illustrations, + 177 ll. with 14 wood-cut illustrations [making 97 woodcuts in all], final leaf with colophon & large printer's device of Georg Raben/und Weygand Hanen Erben; contemporary pigskin dated 1572, decorative brass bosses and holders for the now-lost metal clasps; the pigskin of the front hinge cracked but holding firmly, slanting crack in the skin on the front board, with slight loss of surface, another small surface hole the size of a small coin on front board; pale library stamp on front blank and verso of last page, scattered marginal library stamps (very small)); contents lightly browned, with a stabhole in c. 80 leaves which affectsa few letters. The front board - somewhat darkened - bears the title in capitals, and the date 1572 in a once dyed or painted central panel; the blind-stamped ornament of the boards is clearer on the brighter rear board: it includes panels of acorns, fleurs-de-lys, and small historical portraits. This copy is made particularly interesting by a contemporary full-page manuscript ex-libris in black, red, yellow, and silver with a full-page armorial crest and the name "Johan Tobing her Leonardes Son" painted directly on to the front paste-down. The name of a much later English owner is written neatly in small letters above, in the top margin. The book later passed to Stoke-on-Trent Public Library, who consigned it with other books to auction in 2006. Text in German.

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.

JURIEU, PIERRE, (1637-1713.)
The History of the Council of Trent. : In Eight Books. Whereunto Is Prefixt a Discourse Containing Historical Reflexions on Councils
. and particularly on the conduct of the Council of Trent, proving that the Protestants are not obliged to submit thereto / written in French by Peter Jurieu, Doctour and Professour of Divinity.And now done into English. Printed by J. Heptinstall, for Henry Faithorne and John Kersey, and Edward Evets, 1684, CXX, 608pp. frontispiece title page page I headed by: Historical Reflections ON COUNCILS; And particularly on the Council of TRENT: PROVING That Protestants are not Obliged to submit thereto. Page 1 is headed by: THE HISTORY OF THE Council of TRENT. Deals with LEO. X. ADRIAN. VI. CLEM. VII. PAUL. III. PAUL III. PAUL III. JULIUS III. JULIUS III. JULIUS III. MARCEL II. PAUL IV. PIUS IV. PIUS IV. PIUS IV. PIUS IV. ERRATA. A TABLE of the most remarkable matters contained in this History. Translation of Abrégé de l'histoire du concile de Trente.
¶ The Council of Trent played an important part in determining the outcome of the Counter-Reformation. Along with the part played by the Jesuits and certain individuals, the Council of Trent was a central feature of the Counter-Reformation. But whether Trent represented a positive move by the Catholic Church remains contentious. Any long term change in the Catholic Church depended on the attitude of the pope in power at one particular time. If there was no desire for change, then there would be no change! Julius III (1550 to 1555) showed little interest in reform. There were those popes who were the opposite and were truly interested in moving forward the Catholic Church such as Sixtus V (1585 to 1590). The Council of Trent was called by Paul Ill who was pope from 1534 to 1549 and it first sat in December 1545. It was finally disbanded in 1563 but though it would appear to have a life span of 18 years, it was only engaged in talks for four and a half years. Most of the popes at this time did not want to lose power and "they did not feel any enthusiasm for the abolition of abuses which were lucrative for the Papacy." (Cowie) The pope did not attend the meetings of the Council and he took no formal part in it. But his legates ensured that the pope's views would always be put forward and this meant that there was no danger in the revival of conciliarism (the Council being superior to the pope). 700 bishops could have attended the Council but to start with only 31 turned up along with 50 theologians. By 1563, a total of 270 bishops attended and the vast majority of them were Italian which was a great bonus for the pope as they were under his control and it was the pope who effectively controlled promotion to cardinal etc. and these men would not be seen in public doing anything other than what the pope wanted. The bishops also insisted that they vote as individuals rather than as a block-country vote and as there were 187 Italian bishops, 32 Spanish, 28 French and 2 German the Italians vastly outnumbered the other three countries put together! As such what was to be passed at Trent was what the pope accepted as being acceptable to him. The Council had been called to examine doctrine and reform. Charles V had wanted abuses looked at first in an attempt to please the Protestants and hopefully tempt them back to the church. Once they were back they could look at doctrine. Paul III did not want this as reforms could financially damage him and concessions could diminish his authority. The result was that two separate sections dealt with reform and doctrine simultaneously. The Council of Trent (Latin: Concilium Tridentinum) was the 16th-century Ecumenical Council of the Roman Catholic Church. It is considered to be one of the Church's most important[1] councils. It convened in Trent (then capital of the Prince-Bishopric of Trent, in the Holy Roman Empire, now in modern Italy) between December 13, 1545, and December 4, 1563 in twenty-five sessions for three periods. Council fathers met for the first through eighth sessions in Trent (1545-7), and for the ninth through eleventh sessions in Bologna (1547) during the pontificate of Pope Paul III.[2] Under Pope Julius III, the council met in Trent (1551-52) for the twelfth through sixteenth sessions. Under Pope Pius IV, the seventeenth through twenty-fifth sessions took place in Trent (1559-63). The council issued condemnations on what it defined as Protestant heresies and defined Church teachings in the areas of Scripture and Tradition, Original Sin, Justification, Sacraments, the Eucharist in Holy Mass and the veneration of saints. It issued numerous reform decrees.[3] By specifying Catholic doctrine on salvation, the sacraments, and the Biblical canon, the Council was answering Protestant disputes.[1] The Council entrusted to the Pope the implementation of its work; as a result, Pope Pius IV issued the Tridentine Creed in 1565; and Pope Pius V issued in 1566 the Roman Catechism, in 1568 a revised Roman Breviary, and in 1570 a revised Roman Missal, thus initiating what since the 20th century has been called the Tridentine Mass (from the city's Latin name Tridentum), and Pope Clement VIII issued in 1592 a revised edition of the Vulgate.[4] The Council of Trent, delayed and interrupted several times because of political or religious disagreements, was a major reform council and the most impressive embodiment of the ideals of the Counter-Reformation.[4] It would be over 300 years until the next Ecumenical Council. When announcing Vatican II, Pope John XXIII stated that the precepts of the Council of Trent continue to the modern day, a position that was reaffirmed by Pope Paul VI.[5] in full rather worn and damaged original calf no front end papers, some marginal; worm holing , staining to edges of some pages,[ DR 5 ].

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. [ DR 3 ].

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.

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).
