        Racing in America 1665-1979 in Six Volumes [Signed by W. S. Vosburgh, William H. Rudy, and Raymond Belmont]

      Privately Printed for the Jockey Club, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good to Fine, First editionA Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, complete in Six Volumes [including the quite scarce Vosburgh Volume], WITH THE VOSBURGH VOLUME SIGNED BY W. S. VOSBURGH AND BY RAYMOND BELMONT, AND THE RUDY VOLUME SIGNED BY WILLIAM H. RUBY, replete with 361 Plates/Illustrations; a remarkable set of this Limited Edition in Six Volumes, with several of the Volumes being hand-numbered; the first volume (being one of two Volumes covering 1665-1865) authored by John Hervey being number 241 of eight hundred copies, the second volume (being the second of two Volumes covering 1665-1865) also authored by John Hervey and also being numbered 241 of eight hundred copies; the third volume (covering 1866-1921) authored by W. S. Vosburgh not calling to be numbered and of which -- given its scarcity -- presumably few copies were printed; the fourth volume (covering 1922-1936) not called to be numbered; the fifth volume (covering 1937-1959) authored by Robert F. Kelley being numbered 137 of one thousand copies; and the sixth volume (covering 1960-1979) authored by W. H. Rudy being numbered 428 of two thousand copies. The Volumes vary from Very Good to Fine condition with the first, second, third, fourth, and sixth Volumes showing varied rubbing to the board corners; the first, second, and third Volumes show some scattered foxing; the first, second, and third Volumes showing some rubbing/wear to the boards and board edges (the first Volume also shows spotting to the front endpapers and tide marks to the spine and to the right margin of the Index pages at the rear and the second volume a tide mark to the lower spine); the third Volume's frontispiece tissue guard is wrinkled; the fourth Volume shows some wear to the spine ends and to the leading edges of the boards; and the first, second, third, and sixth Volumes show some wear to the spine labels. The first and second Volumes carry the small bookplate of Fairfield G. Coogan of York Maine, a member of the family for which "Coogan's Bluff" is named. A cornerstone of any racing collection, the individual Volumes are rather uncommon to the market and complete sets containing all six Volumes are quite scarce. Both individual Volumes and complete sets signed by any of the authors are as scarce as hen's teeth. The most important Volume, that authored by W. S. Vosburgh is quite scarce indeed and signed copies of it appear to be virtually impossible to find. One of the most notable figures in America's thoroughbred racing history. Vosburgh's Volume, itself one of the most important works of racing history, covers the period during which thoroughbred racing evolved into its modern form and provides a detailed history of racing in New York during the period covered, capsule histories of racing history in other states, including Missouri, and reviews of the most important horse races of the era. One of the New York Jockey Club's founding members, of his Volume the New York Times, in its review, stated "[Vosburgh] is probably the best equipped man in America for such a work….throughout it runs the personality of a true lover of the thoroughbred whose youthful enthusiasm has never waned." In his obituary, the Times noted that he was considered the best handicapper in America and that, during his 60 years of involvement in the sport, he did much to assure the success of thoroughbred racing in America. Vosburgh's Volume is signed by him on the title page also has been signed by Raymond Belmont on the Volume's front free endpaper, which signature Belmont has dated "1924" (and the ghost of which signature and date appears on the following blank page). Belmont, son of Belmont Park's founder August Belmont, Jr., and grandson August Belmont, Sr. who financed the inaugural Belmont Stakes held at Jerome Park Racetrack in The Bronx (1868 ), ran the Belmont track (at which the Belmont Stakes, the annual third leg of the Triple Crown, is held and at which the race has been run since 1905) from his father's death in 1924. A remarkable set of a racing collection cornerstone, SIGNED BY RAYMOND BELMONT, WILLIAM H. RUDY, and W. S. VOSBURGH.

        [four lines in Greek, then] Vetus testamentum graecum ex versione Septuaginta interpretum, juxta exemplar Vaticanum Romae editum

      Cantabrigiae: Excusum per Joannem Field 12mo (14 cm; 5.5"). [1] f., 19, [1], 755 [i.e. 767, 1], 516 pp. (without the initial blank).. 1665 The second English edition of the Septuagint. There are different issues: This a copy of the one with the third word of the Greek title readiing "Diath?che" and not "Diath?ke" and with the printer's device showing the man holding the sun in his left hand. Thus, this is Darlow and Moule issue "B." => Thomas Jefferson owned a copy of one of the issues of this edition. Provenance: Manuscript ownership inscription of John Ray dated 1716 (on retained fly-leaf); ownership signature of Robert L. Wilson, New York, 1818 (on title-page); gilt supra-libros of Barzillai Slosson, dated 1829. Later in the Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). Binding: American binding of dark blue goat, richly gilt, with wide floral border on covers and spine distinctively gilt using rules and floral roll. Board edges with a gilt roll; turn-ins gilt tooled. Marbled endpapers. All edges gilt. Gilt supra-libros of Barzillai Slosson as above. Unsigned. Barzillai Slosson may have been related to the lawyer of the same name who was active in Kent, CT, at the end of the 18th century and into the fourth decade of the 19th, whose account books are in the Yale Law Library. And the owner of this Testament may be the Barzillai who graduated from Columbia College in 1818 and later moved to Geneva, NY, where he was active and successful in business and civic affairs. Binding as above, lightly rubbed. Pages closely cropped in the 19th-century rebinding and some initial or final letters touched or lost. Very good.

This is the first astronomical treatise based on telescopic observations to be published.

        The travels of Sig. Pietro della Valle, a noble Roman, into East-India and Arabia Deserta [...]. Whereunto is added a relation of Sir Thomas Roe's voyage into the East-Indies.

      London, J. Macock for John Martin and James Allestry, 1665.. (8), 480 pp. With double-page engraved map and 3 engraved plates (on 2 leaves) and some woodcut illustrations in the text. Contemporary calf. Rebacked, with parts of the original backstrip laid down. Folio.. First edition in English (of the third part) of Pietro della Valle's renowned "Viaggi", describing his travels in India, Arabia and Syria. Della Valle sojourned six years in Persia, returning overland to Europe in 1623. He travelled from Goa (India) to Muscat and through the Arabian Gulf to Basra and from there to Aleppo. His narrative includes a detailed description of the Arabian Gulf. "Della Valle displayed excellent narrative and descriptive skills, powers of acute observation, and a genuinely scholarly breadth of learning. He refused to comment on what he had not witnessed himself or checked against the best authorities" (Gurney). - Della Valle's account is followed by Thomas Roe's journal. Sir Thomas Roe (c. 1581-1644) was the first fully accredited English ambassador to the court of the Great Mughal, Jahangir. Roe stayed at the court for nearly three years from 1615 until 1618. He described daily life at court in great detail, which makes his account a major source for the study of Mughal court life, providing interesting details of the character of Mughal Emperor Jahangir. Roe frequently refers to Arabia and includes an account of Islam. The double-page map shows the Mughal Empire. - With contemporary manuscript index on last blank. Bookplate on pastedown. Blanks and pastedowns dirty, some smudges and stains, otherwise in good condition. - ESTC R10032. Howgego, to 1800, D30. Tobler 95. Cf.

        Micrographia: or some Physiological Descriptions of Minute Bodies made by Magnifying Glasses

      London: John Martyn and James Allestry for the Royal Society, , 1665. Folio (299 x 194 mm). Contemporary calf, skilfully rebacked and relined. Title-page printed in red and black with engraved arms of the Royal Society, 38 engraved plates of which 37 are folding by and after the author and possibly Christopher Wren, woodcut headpieces and 5-line initials. Contemporary inscription on license leaf blank recto recording the gift of the book by Sir James Cuffe to Trinity Hall, Cambridge: "Liber Aula Trinitatis e Dono Jacobi Cuffe eq[uita]tis. Aurati. A[nn]o 1665". License leaf reattached in gutter, lower margin of title and A1 repaired without affecting text, some minor paper repairs to plates and text leaf corners, a good copy. First edition, first issue. This "early landmark in microscopy, containing the first illustration of cells [plate xi]" (Horblit) was published under the aegis of the Royal Society, and Hooke's observations were the first to be carried out with an improved compound microscope, and the first to describe the microscopic structure of tissue with the term "cell". The book reproduces the almost frantic series of observations made by Hooke in 1663 and 1664 as the young scientist (he was still in his twenties) peered through the lenses of his new microscope at anything he could find. His text ranges widely, finding space for discussion of microscopic fungi, the life cycle of the mosquito, the origin of lunar craters, as well as the origin of fossils (Hooke's proposal is the first sensible one in print). There is also the discussion of light and colour which led to his bitter dispute with Newton. The extent of Hooke's investigation and the precision of his account entirely devoted to microscopical examination made Hooke's work "probably the most influential book in the entire history of microscopy" (Norman). But it is the justly famous series of plates, engraved mostly from Hooke's drawings with some probably by Sir Christopher Wren, which ultimately distinguishes the book, made it a contemporary bestseller, and kept Pepys up all night staring at it in amazement. Here are the tiny, unregarded components of everyday life ?- a stinging nettle, for example, a louse, or the famous flea ?- blown up with a startling degree of detail and exactness not to be equalled until the age of the electron microscope. This discovery of a new world-within-a-world had a profound influence on contemporary perceptions of the everyday world. The disorientating effect of the new perspective is memorably captured in Swift's descriptions of Lilliput and Brobdingnag in Gulliver's Travels.

      Amsterdam, Jacob van Meurs, 1665.2 volumes in 1. Folio. Contemporary polished vellum. With title-page printed in red and black, engraved frontispiece depicting the emperor of China with globe and a convicted criminal (2 blank margins rep.), engraved portrait of the author, large folding engraved map of China and Formosa, 2 engraved coats of arms, 34 double-page engraved plates and 110 large engravings in the text. (8),208;258,(10) pp.First edition. - Between 1640 and 1644 Nieuhof was serving as an official of the Dutch West India Company (WIC) in Brazil, but by 1665 he was at Batavia, in Java, as a servant of the Dutch East India Company (VOC). In 1665 Nieuhof published what is regarded as the definitive account of the Dutch embassy to Peking, and it is for this that he is best known (Howgego p.752). Nieuhof's account presented the Dutch reader with the most substantial and detailed description of the Middle Kingdom yet published. It contains information from the most important Jesuit sources and adds to them the observations of one of the first Dutchmen to travel in China's interior and visit the capital. Nieuhof's book is lavishly illustrated (providing) European readers with more realistic visual images of China's landscape and people than ever before (Lach-Kley, Asia in the making, III, p.484. This first embassy of the Dutch East India Company of Pieter de Goyer and Jakob de Keyser to the court of China in the years 1655-57, describes all the events during this mission, the country, people, flora & fauna, etc. It is one of the very few non-Jesuit sources of the period. It is richly illustrated with large views of all ports and places visited, starting with Batavia, and with numerous nice text-engravings illustrating in detail Chinese life in the 17th century. The illustrations, engraved after Nieuhof's relatively accurate drawings exercised a considerable influence on the European conception of China and were widely used and reproduced (Löwendahl p. 65). The Paolinxi-plate mentioned in the index is actually only present in the Latin edition. - A very fine copy.Tiele 800; Landwehr, VOC, 539; Cat.

        Occasional Reflections upon Several Subjects. Whereto is premis'd a Discourse about Such Kind of Thoughts

      London: by W. Wilson for Henry Herringman, 1665. First edition. Title in red and black. [40], 264; 229, [1], 9 pp. 2 parts. 1 vols. 8vo. Contemporary panelled calf, rebacked. Some slight dampstaining to endpapers, hole on 2D3 affecting some letters. Overall, a pleasant copy, in a red quarter morocco slipcase. Boyle the Fisherman: the Honeyman Copy Boyle's most amusing and most frequently reprinted work in modern times, written for the most part while he was a young squire at Stalbridge and much given to riding, walking and angling -- as well as pursuing his scientific interests. Boyle's florid style was parodied by Swift in his Occasional Meditations on a Broomstick, and it is often stated that Reflection II of Section VI on "The Eating of Oysters" (p. 194) gave birth to Gulliver's Travels.Of special interest to anglers is the second part (Section IV), entitled "Angling Improv'd to Spiritual Uses", which contains meditations on angling themes such as "Upon Fishing with a Counterfeit Fly," "Upon a Fish's Struggling after having Swallowed the Hook," "Upon Fishes running away with the Bait," etc. Westwood & Satchell rightly note that "the details of the sport are merely employed as the pegs on which to hang moral and religious reflections." But the scientist Boyle explains that "being really a great lover of angling, and frequently diverting myself at that sport ... the accidents of that recreation were the true themes on which the following discourses were not the only meditations I had made." Published only 10 years after the appearance of Walton's Compleat Angler (1653), it is hard to imagine that Boyle's meditations were not influenced by his distinguished predecessor.The book's significance to anglers is amply evidenced by the prices of copies from famous angling collections: the Heckscher copy in 1906 brought $13.50; the Dean Sage copy in 1984 brought $400.

        Quitte

      . Aquarell auf Papier. verso bezeichnet (signiert ?): "P. F. van Brussel", 9,5 x 16,3 cm. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Die Stilllebenmalerei des 18. Jahrhunderts konnte auf eine ganze Reihe hervorragender Vorgänger zurückblicken: Georg Flegel, Abraham Mignon, Jan Davidsz. de Heem. Die Gruppe ließe sich beliebig erweitern und Künstler wie Jan van Huysum oder Rachel Ruysch waren noch selbst bis weit in das 18. Jahrhundert hinein aktiv. Diese Blütezeit des Stilllebens in jeder erdenklichen Form warf aber auch einen langen Schatten auf die Spätgeborenen, die sich entweder durch perfekte Erfüllung der hohen Vorgaben oder durch radikale Innovation bewähren mussten. Zwar war das Stillleben in der akademischen Hierarchie weiterhin von letzter Bedeutung, doch es erfreute sich bei Sammlern immer noch großer Beliebtheit. Paul van Brussel gehörte zu jener Generation Maler, die mit dem Ballast der Tradition umzugehen hatten. Für ihn bedeutete dies, in den Grenzen seines Faches zur Perfektion zu gelangen. Die großen Vorbilder Jan van Huysum und Jan van Os stehen bei seinen Gemälden immer Pate. Die Käuferschaft dankte es ihm mit zahlreichen Aufträgen und viele Kopien nach seinen Gemälden bezeugen die hohe Wertschätzung. Unsere beiden Zeichnungen verdeutlichen allerdings einen anderen, weniger konventionellen Zugriff auf die Objekte seiner Malerei. In starker Nahsicht zeigt van Brussel diese Quitte mit ihrem charakteristischen Flaum. Anders als in den durchkomponierten großen Blumengebinden oder Früchtearrangements steht hier die Konzentration auf das einzelne Objekt im Vordergrund. Jede Krümmung, jede Beschädigung, jedes Charakteristikum wird erforscht und zeichnend untersucht. Gerade diese Versenkung, das Meditieren über das Detail, unterscheidet diese Studien von der überbordenden Pracht der fertigen Gemälde, die durch ihre Opulenz überwältigen. Auch die allegorischen Aspekte des Stilllebens, die sich gegen Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts ohnehin zunehmen verflüchtigen, haben unter diesem mikroskopischen Blick keinen Platz mehr. Auch wenn es sich bei dem hier gezeigten Blatt wohl um eine vorbereitende Studie handelt, so besitzt es in der präzisen Durchführung eine Eigenständigkeit, die es erlaubt, ihren Kontext als gezeichnetes und aquarelliertes Stillleben zu betrachten. In der konzentrierten Reduktion findet sich in Adriaen Coorte (um 1665 - nach 1707) ein Vorgänger, den van Brussel allerdings wohl nicht gekannt hat. Erst das durch die Schule des Surrealismus gegangene 20. Jahrhundert hat die mysteriöse und unheimliche Vereinzelung in seinen Werken schätzen gelernt. Das Städel Museum in Frankfurt bewahrt zwei kleine Tafeln von Justus Juncker (1703-1767), auf denen ein Apfel und eine Birne in ihrer Singularität gleichsam als Denkmal präsentiert werden. Hier steigert sich die Faszination für das Detail sogar in einen bizarren Anthropomorphismus, der gut als Karikatur durchgehen könnte. In der Romantik erfährt das Detail und die Fokussierung auf Teilbereiche unter dem Überbegriff des Fragments neue Bedeutung. Paul van Brussels Blatt ist ein gelungenes Beispiel dieser Umbruchzeit, in der nicht mehr das Ganze die Summe seiner Teile ist, sondern im Versinken in das Detail ein neuer Zugriff auf die darzustellende Welt ermöglicht wird.

        Troiziesme Partie Du Ceremonial Contenant La vesture et Proffesion Des filles de choeur'. Et: 'Ceremonial quatrieme Partie Contenant la facon dadministrer Les sacremens de confession comunion et extreme onction aux Malades, avec la forme de les visiter et consoler. En semble les funerailles des trespasez selon le manuel romain reformé et l'usage regulier'. Anonyme Handschrift des 17. Jahrhunderts in französischer und lateinischer Sprache, schwarze Tinte auf Papier, sehr gleichmäßige, schöne Reinschrift mit zahlreichen Noten, die letzten 7 Seiten mit Nachträgen von anderen Händen, Blattgröße 18,8 x 14 cm.

      - (2) unbeschriebene Bl., (85) Seiten, (6) Bl. mit Nachträgen, etwas späterer Leder-Band der Zeit, Rücken auf fünf Bünden und mit reicher Goldprägung, Rückenschild fehlt, oder war nie vorhanden (Einband mäßig, Ecken etwas deutlicher, berieben). Die Handschrift beschreibt in beeindruckender Detailgenauigkeit und Präzision die zu absolvierenden Zeremonien bei der Einkleidung und Aufnahme von Novizinnen in ein - leider nicht näher bezeichnetes - Kloster, sowie bei Besuchen am Krankenbett, bei Verabreichung der Sterbesakramente und bei Beisetzungen von Nonnen. Dabei werden sowohl die vorgeschriebenen Bewegungen, zerlegt in kleinste nachvollziehbare Schritte, dargelegt, als auch die zugehörigen Gebete und Gesänge wiedergegeben. Diese besondere Ausführlichkeit und Genauigkeit wird besonders augenfällig beim Vergleich der Handschrift mit den wenigen gedruckten Manualen, wie etwa den 1665 in Mons erschienenen 'Constitutions du monastère de Port-Royal'. Die hier enthaltenen Kapitel 'De la manière de recevoir les filles à la profession' (Seite 68 - 74) und 'La manière de recevoir les filles à profession au monastere du S. Sacrement à Port Royal' (Seite 343 - 345), sowie 'La manière de donner l'habit de Novice au monastere de Port Royal' (307 - 322), stellen im Kern die gleiche Prozedur dar, allerdings erfolgt die Schilderung der Zeremonien in eher knappen Begriffen und Formulierungen. Demgegenüber werden in der hier vorliegenden Handschrift, und darin liegt neben der Seltenheit solcher Dokumente im Allgemeinen der besondere Reiz des Manuskriptes, die Zeremonien wie in einem überaus genauen Drehbuch beschrieben. - Titelblatt mit handschriftlicher Widmung 'A soeur marie seraphique en l'année '73'; die erste Seite etwas angestaubt und fleckig, sonst nur stellenweise etwas stockfleckig, das letzte Blatt vor den Nachträgen fleckig und verso mit dem ersten Nachtragsblatt verklebt.
