Faksimile-Reproduktionen von Tom Wolfes Manuskriptseiten und Ephemera aus der Acid-Ära.Tom Wolfe (* 2. März 1931 in Richmond/USA eigentlich Thomas Kennerly Wolfe Jr.) ist ein US-amerikanischer Schriftsteller, Journalist, Kunst- und Architekturkritiker sowie Illustrator. Wolfe gilt zusammen mit Truman Capote, Norman Mailer, Hunter S. Thompson und Gay Talese als Gründer des New Journalism, eines Reportagestils, der literarische Elemente in nichtfiktionalen Texten einsetzt. Der subjektive Blickwinkel und der an der literarischen Moderne orientierte Schreibstil stehen im Gegensatz zum sachlich-objektiven Stil gängiger Reportagen. Im Jahre 1964 brachen der berühmte Schriftsteller Ken Kesey und seine Kommune zu einer Transkontinentalen Bustour durch Amerika auf, die von San Francisco nach New York führen und den Geist der psychedelischen Revolution im ganzen Land verbreiten sollte. On the road mit dabei: ein ganzer Kanister voll mit reinem LSD. Keseys Promo-Trip für bewusstseinserweiternde Drogen in Gesellschaft seiner Merry Pranksters bildet das Kernstück von The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test von Tom Wolfe, dem Wunderkind der New-Journalism-Bewegung.

LEURECHON, HENRION, MYDORGE
Paris, Rollet Boutonne, 1638. ____ Illustré par plus de 80 bois gravés dans le texte. Il règne la plus grande confusion sur les auteurs de ce texte célèbre que l'on doit plutôt considérer comme une compilation de plusieurs auteurs. Largement inspiré de l'ouvrage de Bachet de Méziriac, cet ouvrage contient de nombreux problèmes originaux, ainsi que d'autres, extraits de Cardan. La première partie est traditionnellement attribuée à Leurechon, mais pourrait être d'Hendrik van Etten, la seconde à Denis Henrion et à Claude Mydorge. La troisième, qui traite des feux d'artifices est inspirée de Jean Appier Hanzelet. La quatrième "Nottes sur les récréations mathématiques ... par D.H.P.E.M." sont de Denis Henrion. Chaque partie a sa propre page de titre particulière. Papier un peu bruni, une galerie de ver tout au fond du cahier A de la seconde partie, mais bel exemplaire. ***** Illustrated by more 80 woodcuts in-text. Famous compilation of scientific recreations, based on Bachet de Méziriac' book, by several authors : Leurechon, Denis Henrion and Claude Mydorge. In-8. Collation : (16), 280, 63, (5), 67-106, (9), (3 bl.), 39, (1 bl.) pp. Vélin. (Reliure de l'époque.).

STENSEN, Niels (Nicolaus Steno).
Extremely rare autograph letter from Stensen (1638-86) to Viviani (1622-1703), his closest friend in the Accademia del Cimento, of which Stensen himself was a member, and where he carried out his most important research, leading to the publication of his great works Elementorum myologiae specimen (1667) and De solido intra solidum naturaliter contento (1669). The first part of the former was written in collaboration with Viviani, and the latter was seen through the press by Viviani following Stensen's return to Copenhagen after his first stay in Florence (1666-8), where both works were published. This letter dates from the period after Stensen's second stay in Florence (1670-2). Stensen expresses his frustration at being unable to find a secure position in his home city, even though the Danish king, Christian V, had invited him there as Anatomico Regio. He expresses his hope that he will therefore be able to accept the invitation of Grand Duke Cosimo III de' Medici and return to Florence, both to continue his research and act as tutor to Cosimo's son, Grand Prince Ferdinand. In fact, Stensen's difficulties in Copenhagen were never resolved, but he did not return to Florence until the end of 1674. The present letter also testifies to Stensen's intense religious sensibilities. His conversion to Catholicism in 1667 was the main obstacle to proper recognition in Lutheran Denmark, and would lead to his abandoning scientific work from 1675, the Holy Year proclaimed by Pope Clement X, to devote himself completely to his religious calling. We know of no other autograph letter of St … [Click Below for Full Description]

BERMUDEZ DE PEDRAZA, Francisco
Granada, Andrés de Santiago 1638 - Fol. (29 x 19,5 cm.) Frontis grabado al cobre, 10 h., 302 fols. Pergamino de época. Es obra rara y estimada. Desde muy joven, el autor, cronista e historiador, se interesó por la historia de su ciudad natal, investigando en los archivos y crónicas disponibles y publicando en 1608 Antigüedades y excelencias de Granada, obra erudita y llena de curiosidades, que, reformada y ampliada, volvió a publicar en 1637 bajo el título “Historia eclesiástica de Granada”, apoyándose en Luis del Mármol Carvajal para la parte correspondiente a la época islámica. “La obra responde a la necesidad de construir una historia de la ciudad de Granada acorde con las necesidades y valores de la Contrarreforma. Tras la guerra contra los moriscos de 1568-1571 y su posterior expulsión, la ciudad ve cómo se disipan los sueños imperiales forjados durante la época carolina y su prosperidad económica. Granada queda convertida en una ciudad administrativa, despoblada y decaída. En este contexto de abatimiento moral y económico, Bermúdez de Pedraza, entre otros, se propone reconstruir la historia de Granada de acuerdo con las exigencias contrarreformistas de la ortodoxia católica impuesta por Felipe II. En esta empresa, apoyado en las falsificaciones de la Torre Turpiana y del Sacromonte, los falsos cronicones y en autores del pasado reciente como Diego Hurtado de Mendoza, Bermúdez de Pedraza defiende la historicidad de una Granada mítica de remoto pasado cristiano frente a la poco grata sospecha de ser una ciudad de fundación musulmana.

BLAEU, Willem
Amsterdam, 1638. unbound. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 15.25" x 20". This important 1638 map by Willem Blaeu provides an unexpected and unequalled view of the nascent colonies of New Netherlands, labeled with its Latin equivalent of Nova Belgica, and New Amsterdam. Oriented to the west, it proceeds from south at top to north at bottom, producing an oddly oriented but highly detailed account of the coastline. This map publicizes the 1613 discoveries of Dutch captain Adriaen Block, who added to contemporary accumulated knowledge of the coastline through his voyages around Long Island and the Cape. Block's contributions, as noted on his well-known chart of 1614, include the recognition and naming of the islands of Manhates (Manhattan) and Matowacs (Long Island); detailing of the valleys of the Hudson and Connecticut Rivers; and labeling of Nieu Pleimonth, Fort Orange (formerly Fort Nassau), and various other Dutch settlements. While Blaeu repeats the inaccurate horizontality of the coast, he adds to public knowledge of the new continent by depicting local wildlife, including deer, foxes, bears, egrets, rabbits, cranes, and turkeys. Beavers and otters also appear for the first time, although it seems Dutch settlers had not yet discovered that beavers are herbivores, since one is shown clutching a fish in its mouth. The upper left corner of the map contains two inset illustrations of Mohegan villages that, despite their idealization, nonetheless offer insight into the tiny icons of Indian villages dotting the landscape. First issued in 1635, Blaeu's map … [Click Below for Full Description]

Folio, pp. [56], 723, [1], [60], [66] index; Greek and Latin texts in parallel columns; title page printed in red and black, large engraved device on title; first several gatherings extended; prelims and first 60 pages with dampstain entering from the top margin touching the text; contemporary full calf neatly rebacked with new red morocco label on spine; extremities rubbed and worn, corners bumped and showing; a good, sound copy. Isidore of Pelusium (d. ca. 450) "was born in Egypt to a prominent Alexandrian family. He became an ascetic, and moved to a mountain near the city of Pelusium, in the tradition of the Desert Fathers. Isidore is known to us for his letters, written to Cyril of Alexandria, Theodosius II, and a host of others. A collection of 2,000 letters was made in antiquity at the "Sleepless" monastery in Constantinople, and this has come down to us through a number of manuscripts, with each letter numbered and in order. The letters are mostly very short extracts, a sentence or two in length. Further unpublished letters exist in Syriac translation" (Wiki). Ebert 10573.

[Belgien - Schloß Chokier].
1638. 69, (1) SS., l. w. Bl. Geheftet. 4to. Außerordentlich seltene gedruckte Quelle zum Prozeß des Paul de Berlo(z) gegen Francisque de Belgioso (Beljoyeuse), in welchem ersterer sein Erbrecht auf das Schloß Chokier südwestlich von Lüttich (letztlich erfolgreich) gegen Belgioso erstritt. Paul de Berlo war 1592 noch als Kind von Marie de Senzeille und ihrem zweiten Gatten Paul de Stor adoptiert und zum Alleinerben auf Chokier eingesetzt worden. Nach dem Tode de Stors heiratete Marie 1596 den Mailänder Militär und Haudegen Jean-Jacques Barbiano de Belgioso. Der jähzornige und brutale Wüstling, dessen Untaten Legende waren, schaffte den Ziehsohn Paul nach Italien, sperrte seine Gattin in einen Kerker, um ihr ein Testament zu seinem Gunsten abzupressen, und erstickte sie zuletzt 1602 mit einem Kissen. Er beerbte seine Gattin und heiratete hernach Anne de Poitiers. Nach seinem Tode 1626 fiel Chokier an diese, die das Erbe aber an ihres Mannes Neffen, Ludovic Barbiano de Belgioso abtrat; nach dessen Tod im Folgejahr fiel es an seinen Bruder, Francisque de Belgioso. Gegen diesen klagte der nunmehr aus Italien zurückgekehrte Paul de Berlo sein Erbrecht ein. Zum Erfolg verhalf seiner Klage nicht zuletzt das Gebetbuch der Marie, in welches die Gefangene mit ihrem eigenen Blut ihre Leiden aufgezeichnet hatte. 1636 wurde Paul das Schloß Chokier zugesprochen, doch Belgioso focht das Urteil an: In der vorliegenden Flugschrift versuchte er, die Ansprüche seines Gegners zu diskreditieren. Erst 1639 konnte Paul de Berlo das Schloß endgültig in Besitz nehmen. - Titel etwas angestaubt; einig … [Click Below for Full Description]
