CURETON , W., [IGNATIUS, BISHOP OF ANTIOCH, SAINT, MARTYR, C.35-C.107. ]
Corpus Ignatianum: A Complete Collection of the Ignatian Epistles Genuine, Interpolated, and Spurious; Together with Numerous Extracts from Them, As Quoted By Ecclesiastical Writers Down to the Tenth Century; in Syriac, Greek, and Latin :
. an English translation of the Syriac text, copious notes, and introduction, by William Cureton. London, Francis and John Rivington, 1849, [4], xvii, lxxxvii, [2], 365, [2] pp.; double-page pl. of Syriac mss. drawn by Harrietta Cureton, lithographed in red & black; size 26 x 17 cm. text in Syriac, Greek, Latin and English. Robust and elegant full dark brown calf leather binding, with some mottled lighter patches and a few scuff marks; front and rear covers each blind-ruled with double lines to form one main central panel, narrower panels along all four sides, and four corner panels, each corner with blind stamped floral ornament; spine with title in gilt on red leather title label , four raised bands with blind stamped floral ornaments between them; the top 5 cm. of the spine has at some time been neatly repaired and strengthened, though the repair material now covers the place where a fifth raised band was originally positioned; lower part of spine has a former library shelfmark in small white numerals on black background ("2.81.3"); head and tail bands; lower rear hinge has a small split, pages edged in red; marbled end papers; pasted on to the front endpapers are bookplates of Thomas Hodgkin (1831-1913, a prominent Quaker and historian) and the Woodbrooke Library (a Quaker institution in Birmingham), with a label indicating that the Woodbrooke Library received the volume from the library of Dr. Hodgkin on 12 November 1913; apart from foxing of a few pages at the beginning and end of the book, and neat pencilled notes in the margins of about ten pages, the text is clean and unmarked. Very scarce. An important date in the Ignatian controversy was the year 1845, when Canon Cureton published a Syriac version of the epistles to St. Polycarp, the Ephesians, and the Romans. The three epistles contained in this version appear in a much shorter form than is found in the Greek text and Latin version. A fragment of the epistle to the Trallians is incorporated in the epistle to the Romans, but none of the other epistles appear in the collection. The text of Cureton's edition was based upon two MSS. in the British Museum. The former of these two MSS. dates from the sixth century. It was purchased by Archdeacon Tattam from the convent of St. Mary Deipara in the Nitrian desert in 1839. The second MS. dates from the seventh or eighth century, and was brought from Egypt by Archdeacon Tattam in 1842. Cureton maintained that these three epistles alone represented the genuine Ignatius, that the Vossian collection contained these three in an interpolated form, and that the remaining four letters of the Vossian collection were forgeries. This rekindled the controversy. Dr. Christopher Wordsworth, afterwards Bishop of Lincoln, declared the newly-discovered version to be an epitome of the genuine letters made by an Eutychian heretic. This led Cureton to a fuller treatment of the question. He had meanwhile discovered an additional MS. of the three epistles, brought, like the first-named, from the convent of St. Mary Deipara, and dating from at least the ninth century. He now published his great work Corpus Ignatianum (London, 1849), which contains a full treatment of the whole question. Cureton's view was supported by Bunsen and several eminent scholars. But it has failed to hold its ground. Apart from the fact that the seven letters of the Vossian collection were plainly known to Eusebius and Theodoret, they exhibit a perfect unity of authorship and style throughout. Cureton's theory requires us to suppose that the interpolator was able to reproduce in his additions to the letters the most subtle characteristics of language and grammar. A similar difficulty occurs when we examine the relation of Cureton's Syriac version to the Syriac version of the seven letters. The one is plainly derived from the other, and it is far more probable that the Curetonian Syriac version is an abridged form of the Syriac version of the seven letters, than that the latter is an expansion of the former. Epistle to Polycarp, to the Ephesians and to the Romans: on the left opening Cureton's restored Greek text at the head with the shorter and longer recensions in parallel, on the right the Syriac from his ms a at the head with the longer and shorter Latin versions. For the epistle to the Magnesians, Trallians, Philadelphians and Smyrnians: the shorter and longer Greek recensions on the left, the longer and shorter Latin on the right. Fragments of `Other Ignatian epistles, not mentioned by Eusebius' include epistles from and to Maria Cassobolita, to the Tarsians, to the Antiochians, to Hero the Deacon and to the Philippians, in parallel Greek and Latin; to John Apostle and Evangelist I-II and to S. Mary the Virgin, in Latin only. -- Testimonies respecting St. Ignatius, and extracts from the Ignatian epistles as cited by various authors down to the tenth century, p. [158]-195 -- Passages from the Ignatian epistles, and extracts from various writers respecting St. Ignatius, in Syriac, p. [196]-225 -- English translation from the Syriac, p. [226]-55 -- Excerpta Ignatiana Aethiopice, p. [256]-62, Ethiopic and Latin on facing pages -- Notes, p.

BREVIARIUM NOVI II (1495) FACSIMILE EDITION
This Second Novi Breviary Is a Large Codex of 500 Folios.
. The greater part of it was transcribed by Priest Martinac from the district of Lapac in Grobnic, one of the free medieval Vinodol communes. In his colophons he mentions 1493, 1494 and 1495 as the years in which the codex was written and finished. It was inscribed for the Pauline monastery and the Church of St. Mary on Osap, a little hill outside the walls of Novi Vinodol. The Pauline monks in the glagolitic areas celebrated the Old Slav services from glagolitic liturgical books. The script, particularly that of Priest Martinac is neat and legible liturgical script in square Croatian glagolitic as was use in the 14 and 15 centuries. In language the codex is the Croation redaction of Church Slav. The texts date from the 10th to the 15th centuries, and old and new linguistic elements are intermixed. The breviary retains entire the breviary of the Roman Curia distinguished by lessons of considerable length and detailed descriptions of the offices in the rubrics. 1. Proprium de tempore (fol. 1-267d) 2. Calendar (fol. 268-275) 3. Psalterium (fol. 276a-322c) 4. Officium defunctorum (fol. 322c-324c) 5. Commune Sanctorum (fol. 324c-355c) 6.

Proprium sanctorum (fol. 382a-500d) All the components of this codex: language, script, illuminations, and text are characterised by a mixture of older forms and newer innovations. They present a wide field of interest to scholars in linguistics, and philology, and to librarians, liturgists, musicologists and historians of art. In order to facilitate reading and orientations a glagolitic alphabet has been provided, a list of the most frequent abbreviations of contents.

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 ].

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).
