Dr. Brown (1644 - 1708) effettuato questo viaggio verso l'Europa occidentale, la Germania e nei Balcani nel 1668, e pubblicato il suo rapporto con il suo ritorno in Inghilterra. Questo percorso diventerà un secolo più tardi l'eccellenza di viaggio che l'inglese lo farà. Le regioni descritte Brown erano ancora poco conosciuti in Inghilterra, come la Tessaglia, Bulgaria, Dalmazia ... Come uno dei primi viaggiatori inglesi in questi paesi, tra cui la Grecia, Brown non poteva s ' aiutare impressioni su Antiquariato e mitologia, ma soprattutto di raccogliere la sua chiave mineraria e l'acqua, la geologia e l'estrazione di minerali, molte osservazioni possono essere trovati sulla cultura, i costumi, la cultura e il tabacco in Grecia il suo utilizzo da parte dei turchi, cristiani che vivono in grotta ...

Ce parcours deviendra un siècle plus tard le voyage par excellence que feront les anglais. Les régions que décrit Brown étaient encore peu connues en Angleterre, telles que la Thessalie, la Bulgarie, la Dalmatie... En tant que 'un des premiers voyageurs anglais dans ces contrées, et notamment en Grèce, Brown n'a pu s'empêcher de recueillir des impressions sur les Antiquités et la mythologie, mais son propos touche essentiellement les mines et les eaux, la géologie et l'extraction du minerais, on trouvera maintes observations sur la culture, les moeurs, la culture du tabac en Grèce et son emploi par les turcs, les chrétiens vivant dans des troglodytes... Toutes choses ayant frappé l'esprit du jeune voyageur.

        La Venaria Reale, Palazzo di piacere e di caccia ideato dall'Altezza Reale di Carlo Emanuele II, Duca di Savoia disegnato e descritto l'anno 1672. In Torino, per Bartolomeo Zapatta, 1674

      Zapatta, 1674. in - folio piccolo, pp. (4), 99, elegante legatura di inizio Settecento in p.pelle, il dorso liscio con titolo e fregi in oro. Precedono il testo un frontespizio figurato, la dedica a Giovanna Battista Duchessa di Savoia e suo ritratto nelle vesti di Diana. L'opera è inoltre adorna di un altro titolo calligrafico e 62 splendide tavole per lo più a doppia pagina, alcune più volte ripiegate, come la grandiosa veduta prospettica della Reggia e la pianta con il Parco. Incise da Tasnière da disegni e pitture di Baroncelli, Mielle, Sacchetti, Demphinus e altri, raffigurano le architetture del Castellamonte, i giardini, superbe scene di caccia nonché i dipinti e gli affreschi conservati nelle sale della residenza. Il testo è in forma di dialogo tra il Conte Amedeo di Castellamonte, architetto e primo ingegnere ducale, ed il Cavalier Bernini. Magnifico e celebre libro, tra i più belli del barocco italiano e della letteratura venatoria e uno dei più preziosi e ricercati tra i libri piemontesi d'ogni epoca. Assai raro a trovarsi completo ed in buono stato come il presente esemplare, a causa della scarsa qualità della carta e del diverso formato delle tavole. Bell'esemplare con le incisioni nitidamente inchiostrate; le tavole su doppio foglio montate su unghie per permetterne una comoda lettura. Alcune incisioni su carta fine furono nel Settecento, all'epoca della legatura, rimarginate per una migliore conservazione (qualche incisione lievemente rifilata, restauri nella pieghe di poche tavole).

        [trans.: Collection of Edo Cuisine].

      Many woodcut illus. in the text. Six volumes bound in two. 8vo, orig. wrappers (outer wrappers quite rubbed), remains of printed title label on upper cover of Vol. I (again, quite rubbed), new stitching. N.p.: Suzuki, 1674. First edition of one of the earliest cookbooks in Japan written for chefs working for fiefdom lords; it introduced Edo's cuisine to the rest of the country. The first fish market in Tokyo opened in 1625 and the number of fish recipes in this book is very large. The first printed Japanese cookery book -- Ryori monogatari -- was published in 1643. The arrangement of our work is seasonal and the anonymous author describes each season's foods, always stressing the preparations should be pleasing to the eye. The author describes balanced menus; for instance, if you serve two soups, one should be salty and the other should have the taste of miso. It is one of the first to consider kaiseki cuisine for samurai and aristocrats. This encyclopedic book is richly illustrated with woodcuts showing the various widths vegetables should be cut; ceremonial preparations; how to cut up poultry, fish, and vegetables with very detailed instructions on the many ways daikon radish can be sliced; tofu preparations; terrines of fish; etc. Hundreds of recipes are provided, including 43 detailed descriptions of such dishes as clear soup with sea bream or clear soup with whitebait. Internally, a fine copy. .

Le premier tome contient un roman épistolaire, ‘Le Portefeuille’, satire de la société parisienne précédée, en guise de préface, d’une lettre signée "Desjardins de Villedieu".

Le troisième contient des pièces diverses, maximes, églogues, fragments de journaux, pastiches et dialogues en vers et en prose. Pour M. Cuenin, Madame de Villedieu aurait choisi de ne pas prendre de privilège et se serait adressée directement à un éditeur normand, son compatriote, afin de parer à une éventuelle interdiction (cf. Micheline Cuenin, ‘Roman et société sous louis XIV: Madame de Villedieu’, Thèse, Paris IV, Champion, 1976, II, p.42-43 et p.56 pour la bibliographie).

        MACHIAVEL'S DISCOURSES UPON THE FIRST DECADE OF T. LIVIUS, translated out of the Italian. To which is added, his Prince, with some marginal animadversions noting and taxing his errors. By E.D. . The second edition much corrected & amended.

      Charles Harper, 1674 London: printed for Charles Harper at the Flower-de-luce over against St. Dunstan's Church and John Amery at the Peacock over against Fetter-lane both in Fleet-street, 1674. 8vo, pp. [xxiv], 686, [2]; complete with portrait frontispiece (included in pagination); a good copy with spine missing and contemporary front cover only partially attached. Second edition thus, but actually the third edition in English of both the Discorsi and Il Principe, first published in translations by Edward Dacres in 1636 and 1640 respectively. This collection of both works together was first published in 1663 in an uncommon 12mo edition. The Prince is infamous as a masterpiece of political science, but the Discourses are in many ways its equal - and in the view of some, a more important work. This discussion of Livy's history of the Roman republic contains a much clearer statement of Machiavelli's political philosophy and more penetrating arguments for democratic government than are to be found in The Prince. It includes early versions of the concept of checks and balances, and asserts the superiority of a republic over a principality. It became one of the central texts of republicanism, and has often been argued to be a superior work to the Prince. Housed in a custom-made collector's slipcase.. 2nd Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/No Jacket.

        Volatiles from the history of Adam and Eve:

      8vo., (8) 72 75 - 87 (1) 88 - 89 89 - 188 (4)pp., including final blank, text continuous despite pagination (see ESTC), blank strip cut away from foot of title-page but not near printed surface or ruled border, rather later calf-backed boards, sympathetically rebacked, spine fully gilt in compartments, with the early 20th century bookplate of Leonard Lionel Bloomsfield*. This is an off-piste little book by the natural philosopher and politician Sir John Pettus (ca. 1613-1685), best known now probably for his works on minerals and mining. In his dedicatory piece to his neighbour, Leister Devereux, Viscount Hereford, Pettus observes, self-deprecatingly, that "possibly, these excursions might have been more excusable to me in my youth, than in my age; but it is a solace to me, that I can be yet youthful in my notions .....". * Leonard Lionel Bloomsfield was an extraordinary bibliophile. His principal library of some 13,255 volumes (including incunabula and manuscripts and a large part of the personal library of the poets Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett Browning), is now held by Brighton & Hove City Library.

        Kaasmarkt Alkmaar - Romeijn de Hooghe, 1674.

      Kaasmarkt Alkmaar - "De Waegh en Kaes-Marckt Van de Stadt Alckmaer", ets met gravure vervaardigd door Romeyn de Hooghe in 1674, later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 41x60 cm.Bedrijvigheid op de Waag en Kaasmarkt, op de voorgrond worden de kazen per boot af- en aangevoerd. Het linker huis voorbij de brug, "de Witte-Os' aan de Mient, is van boekverkoper A. Hafersou waar deze prent te koop was.Veeteelt was een buitengewoon belangrijke bedrijfstak in Noord-Holland. Na drooglegging van de meren bleken de polders minder geschikt voor landbouw, voor veeteelt echter wel. In vele steden in dit gebied zoals in Alkmaar, Purmerend en Edam bloeiden de vee- en de kaasmarkten.Alkmaar was in 1573,de eerste stad in Holland die een beleg van de Spanjaarden weerstond. Als dank daarvoor kreeg de stad in 1581 van de Staten van Holland het recht een kaasmarkt te houden. De voormalige Heilige Geest Kapel werd toen omgebouwd tot kaaswaag. Vanaf die dag werd toen in Alkmaar de kaas elk jaar vanaf mei tot Allerheiligen verhandeld op vrijdagen en zaterdagen.In die periode had iedere groep kaasdragers, ofwel ' 'veem", een eigen kaasweegschaal. Het devies van het Alkmaarse gilde was (en is anno 2009 nog steeds): "Een valse waag is de Heer een gruwel en daarentegen een vol gewicht is zijn welbehagen'.Interessant is ook het artikel uit de Canon van Alkmaar "Waar de kaas bequaam ter Merrickt komt"Romeyn de Hooghe (Amsterdam 1645 ? Haarlem 1708) wordt beschouwd als de belangrijkste Nederlandse graficus uit de tweede helft van de 17e eeuw. Hij was behalve doctor in de rechtsgeleerdheid en schrijver van boeken een veelzijdig kunstenaar. Hij is bekend om zijn vele boekillustraties, pamfletten, maar hij etste ook topografische prenten, kaarten en plattegronden.Kunsthistoricus Otto Benesch noemde hem "not only the greatest Dutch etcher of the second half of the century, but the only great artist Holland produced at the end of her classical era. He was one of the greatest illustrators of all times and comprehends within himself all the various faculties of the universal mind of the Baroque".Prijs: € 3.200,-.

        An Account of Two Voyages to New-England

      London: Printed for Giles Widdows at the Green-Dragon in St. Paul's-Church-Yard, 1674. First edition. Woodcut winged dragon printer's device and license on leaf preceding title-page. [8], 279, [3,ads]pp. Small 8vo. Full brown 19th century morocco, a.e.g. Foxing. Bookplate of John Carter Brown (with duplicate stamp) ands stamp. First edition. Woodcut winged dragon printer's device and license on leaf preceding title-page. [8], 279, [3,ads]pp. Small 8vo. This work has been called the "earliest work on the Natural History of New England" (Rich). Josselyn made two trips to America, in 1638-39 and 1663-71, both times landing at Boston and spending most of the time in Maine. His narrative is highly valued for its observations on the state of medicine and surgery in the colonies, as well as its natural history content. Much of the text consists of an extensive catalogue of the flora and fauna of the region, with specific details about the character and demeanor of the creatures encountered there. For example, we find here the first full descriptions of the cranberry, blueberry and wild turkey. Josselyn includes an historical chronology (which includes its own separate titlepage), but acquired his information second hand. This work was proceeded by a more straightforward natural history: New-England's rarities discovered in birds, beasts, fishes, serpents, and plants of that country (1672). It's worth noting that Josselyn hoped these might admit him to the Royal Society. As ODNB explains, election did not transpire. For all their undoubted quality "Josselyn's two works blend dispassionate and useful observations with a retailing of marvels that he would neither read as providences nor explain, nor omit." A rare, important and interesting work. There was a second edition in the following year.

        Ling-t'ai I-hsiang t'u or Hsin-chih I-hsiang t'u [trans.: A Newly Made Collection of Astronomical Instruments].

      106 double-page woodcuts (the first opening is the Chinese Preface, the remaining 105 openings are woodcut illus. within frames, the images each measuring ca. 315 x 320 mm.), printed on thin white Chinese paper. Two vols. Small folio (395 x 199 mm.), orig. golden-yellow silk over paper wrappers (spines perished & with a little fraying), woodcut Chinese title labels on upper covers as issued. [Beijing: presented to the Emperor 6 March 1674]. First edition, printed by the Jesuits in Beijing, of this magnificent woodcut book depicting the observatory and scientific instruments designed by the Jesuits for the emperor of China. This is a very rare book ; our copy was prepared for the Chinese market, probably for the use of the emperor and the functionaries at the observatory. "Very soon after his first visit to Peking in 1601, Matteo Ricci, S.J. (1552-1610), the 'founding father' of the Jesuit Mission in China, was well aware of the Emperor's fondness for European clocks and other instruments such as harpsichords etc., and the former presented an opportunity to enter the Court. Shortly thereafter, he would understand that European astronomy and mathematics were unbeatable challengers of contemporary Chinese science -- for several centuries in a state of decline -- in calculating a correct calendar and reliable eclipse predictions, both very important guarantors of social and dynastic stability and continuity. Apart from this, the mechanical sciences would also became a first class vehicle to penetrate the highly sophisticated circles of mandarins and courtiers, whose curiosity about European things never seen and about new astonishing techniques struggled with their loyalty to their own uncontested traditions, with highly varying individual attitudes as a result. By all this European science appeared to be an appropriate vehicle to approach the Chinese upper class, and, implicitly, to introduce Christianity in China."-Golvers, Ferdinand Verbiest, S.J. (1623-1688) and the Chinese Heaven, p. 15. In 1629 the Jesuits succeeded in establishing an academy for western mathematical sciences in Beijing. The newly established Ch'ing Dynasty nominated Adam Schall von Bell in 1644 as acting director of the ancient Imperial Board of Astronomy, which had the sole authority to calculate and promulgate the yearly Chinese calendar. As a result, Schall and his fellow Jesuits acquired considerable prestige in the highest levels of Chinese society and government. The newly arrived Verbiest (1623-88), became Schall's assistant in 1660. With Schall's death in 1666, Verbiest was the only westerner commanding the astronomical knowledge needed at the Chinese Observatory; he was appointed director in 1669. The Emperor K'ang Hsi was a young and intellectually curious ruler who was fascinated by European science and technology. Verbiest was elevated to Mandarin rank and often accompanied the emperor on his travels around the country. Verbiest designed and built a series of instruments for observation, including a quadrant, six feet in radius; an azimuth compass, six feet in diameter; a sextant, eight feet in radius; a celestial globe, six feet in diameter; and two armillary spheres, zodiacal and equinoctial, each six feet in diameter. These were all very large, made from brass, and mounted on highly decorated stands contrived in the form of lions, dragons, flaming pearls, and other oriental motifs. The technology is entirely European while the decorative features are very Chinese. The inspiration and model for this book was clearly Tycho Brahe's Astronomiae Instauratae Mechanica of 1598. In the present work, the woodcuts display not only the instruments themselves, but show in great detail the processes of their manufacture, with the tools and implements used to produce them; the alignment and adjustment of their flat and curved surfaces; details of the gearing and screws used to adjust and direct the instruments; the civil engineering machinery and processes used in building the instrument mountings and the great observatory tower itself. Other woodcuts depict navigational instruments such as the compass and cross-staff, and their use; astronomical principles; and mechanical powers, such as those of the inclined plane, lever, screw, pulley, winches, etc. This work is one of the greatest masterpieces of Sino-European printing. The woodcuts are undoubtedly done by Chinese artists working after Verbiest's drawings, or after his directions. Fine set preserved in a rather luxurious box. There was another issue prepared for export with an additional woodcut opening with the title in Latin, the Liber Organicus Astronomiae Europaeae. ❧ Chapman, Allan, "Tycho Brahe in China: the Jesuit Mission in Peking and the Iconography of European Instrument-making Processes: in Annals of Science, Vol. 41 (1984), pp. 417-43-(gving a detailed technical exposition of the illustrations in this work). Cordier, Sinica, 1451. Golvers, Ferdinand Verbiest, S.J. (1623-1688) and the Chinese Heaven, no. LO 12 in his census. Sommervogel VIII, 575. .

        TRACTS: CONTAINING SUSPICIONS ABOUT SOME HIDDEN QUALITIES OF THE AIR [and other works]

      London: Printed by W. G. and are to be Sold by M. Pitt, 1674. FIRST EDITION y. This work contains six tracts relating to Boyle's experiments on the nature of air and atmosphere, the most important of which establishes a theory of oxidation for the first time. "I have often suspected," Boyle tells us, that "there may be in the Air some yet more latent Qualities or Powers" and that the air we breathe "is not, as many imagine, a Simple and Elementary body, but a confused Aggregate of Effluviums." He demonstrates this quality by describing the rust that occurs on certain metals when exposed to air and also through experiments on combustion in which a flame under glass will quickly extinguish itself. The active ingredient that both causes rust and feeds fire, which Boyle describes as "some odd substance, either of a Solar, or Astral, or some other exotic, nature" is, of course, oxygen. This hypothesis came a full century before the official discovery of the element by Scheele and Priestly in 1774, with Lavoisier correctly describing the process of combustion soon thereafter. Boyle's "Tracts" also contain, in the words of Fulton, "many other prescient passages," with observations on the nature of suction, experiments concerning the preservation of organic matter in sealed containers, and a particularly long dialogue directed at his adversary Thomas Hobbes concerning the problem of vacuums. Our copy is particularly noteworthy for its retention of the "Advertisement to the Book-binder," with binding instructions that include omitting that leaf; it is therefore lacking in most copies.. 165 x 105 mm. (6 1/2 x 4 1/8"). [6], 71, [3], 25, [3], 13, [7], 17, [11], 94, [6], 67, [3] (blank) pp., 1 leaf (the extremely rare "Advertisement to the Book-binder"). FIRST EDITION. Contemporary sheep, rebacked by an amateur hand, original red morocco spine label laid on. Pastedown with the remains of an unidentifiable armorial bookplate, title with ownership inscriptions of "Burges" and of Josh. Watson of Surbiton Hill House; verso of title and recto of E2 with small stamp of the Selbourne Library. Each tract with a seperate title page. Fulton 119; Wing B-4054. Binding rather rubbed and scuffed, rear free endpaper loose, front free endpaper lacking lower corners and with upper corner and portion of head edge cut away, endpapers a bit stained around the edges from binder's glue, title and a few leaves slightly soiled, an occasional small stain or spot, otherwise a fine copy internally, quite clean and fresh, in a battered but solid binding that has protected it well.

Or, A Methodical Collection Under Certain Heads, Of Thousands of Cases, Dispersed in the Many Great Volumes of the Law, Of What Words are Actionable, And What are Not. And of a Conspiracy, And a Libel. Being a Treatise of Very Great Use and Consequence to All Men, Especially in These Times, Wherein Actions for Slander are More Common Then in Times Past. With an Exact Table Annexed, For the Ready Finding Out Any Thing Therein. London: Printed for J. Starkey, T. Basset, T. Dring, and J. Leigh, 1674. [viii], 287, [17] pp. Octavo (6-3/4" x 4-1/4"). Recent period-style calf. Blind rules with corner fleurons to boards, raised bands, gilt ornaments and lettering piece to spine. Woodcut head-pieces and decorated initials. Moderate toning to text, somewhat heavier in places, faint spotting to a few leaves, some discoloration and minor edgewear to title page. A nice copy in a handsome binding. * Second and final edition. Sheppard's treatise, originally published in 1662 as Action Upon the Case for Slander, was one of the first two books to address the topic. (The other was William March's Actions for Slaunder, 1647.) As indicated by its preface, Sheppard's is especially interesting. " the Tongue, that little Member, set on fire by Hell, is not the least; And among the evils of the Tongue, is there any more pernicious and deadly, and yet more common and epidemical then Backbiting and Slander? (.) It is true, that in former times, wee finde Actions of the Case for Slanderous words very rarely brought; which speaks this much, that such words were then very rarely spoken. But in these daies they are become almost as natural to men, as their language and discourse; and therefore the disease, so deeply rooted, and over-spreading, calls for the application of the Remedy, which our Law doth abundantly furnish us withall. And hence it is, I have been encouraged to ingage in this work; which is nothing else but a naked and Methodical Collection of the remedies prescribed by the Law against this Malady."

Collijn Sveriges bibliografi 1600-talet 583. Almqvist Johann Kankel 21. Martinus Martinius (1614-61) "De bello Tartarico" utkom första gången på latin i Rom 1654 och författaren var bland annat ansvarig för den katolska missionen i Kina. Almqvist skriver i sin Kankelbiografi att en "affskrift om kongerijket China" som omnämns av Per Brahe 1666 med all sannolikhet är identisk med en avskrift av Martinius arbete. Översättaren Ambrosius Svenonis Nidelberg (död 1689) översatte ytterligare några resebeskrivningar, vilka trycktes av Kankel. Johann Kankel (1614-87) var född i Pommern och kom till Sverige 1664. Från 1666 fram till sin död förestod han Per Brahe d.y:s privata tryckeri på Visingsö. 1674 var hans mest verksamma år och sammanlagt förtecknar Almqvist sju tryck från det året omfattande ungefär 640 trycksidor. Bokförläggaren Per Wahlströms (1860-1932) exlibris är utformat av Arthur Sjögren och boken såldes i Björck och Börjessons katalog 305 för 75 kronor

        Respirationis Swammerdammianae exspiratio, una cum anatomia neologices Joannis de Raei

      1674 - de (32) et 352 pages Amsterdam, Joannis a Someren, 1674, in-8, de (32) et 352 pages, vélin rigide de l'époque, couture surjetéee, pièce de titre a dos, Première édition, peu courante, de cette violente critique de la théorie de la circulation de l'air dans les poumons que Swammerdam fit paraitre en 1667 sous le titre "Tractatus physico-anatomico-medicus, de respiratione usuque pulmonum". Lamzweerde relate de très nombreuses expériences de physique et de physiologie humaine sur les principes de la circulation de l'air, mais ne parvient pas, alors qu'il critique mot à mot le texte de Swammerdam, à déconstruire la théorie post-cartésienne de la respiration du brillant microscopiste Amstellodamois ; la sienne reposant sur des présupposés aristotéliciens et un argumentaire scolastique. Toutefois l'ouvrage est illustré, dans le texte, d'un titre frontispice et de 16 belles fines illustrations, à pleine page, montrant de nombreuses illustrations d'anatomie des poumons. Passionnant ouvrage de polémique scientifique et médicale. Malgré un papier uniformément roussi, bon exemplaire dans son vélin d'origine et portant l'ex-libris imprimé du docteur François Moutier.

        Macbeth, a Tragedy: With all the Alterations, Amendments, Additions, and New Songs. As it is now Acted at the Duke's Theatre

      London: Printed for P. Chetwin, 1674. THE SECOND QUARTO EDITION AND THE FIRST DAVENANT EDITION . 1 vol., 17 cm x 21.7 cm, (ii)66pp., small minor paper repair to extreme lower corner of A2 & D2. Bound in contemporary full paneled calf, expertly rebacked, pastedowns and endpapers renewed, internally clean and bright, a nice un-washed copy in for the most part a contemporary binding. Macbeth first appeared in the 1623 collected First Folio of Shakespeare, but was not published separately until the first quarto edition of 1673. Exceedingly rare the census locates only 3 or 4 copies in private hands. By 1673 Davenant's version was enjoying theatrical success in London and in response to this the first quarto edition of the play was issued, which included three additional witches' songs from Davenant's production. In 1674 the first full edition of Davenant's text appeared and both Philip Chetwin and A. Clark published quarto editions. Both of these printings include revised versions of several speeches, two new scenes which were entirely Davenant's own creation, and the three witches' songs. Even so, compared to other early editors, Davenant was relatively faithful to Shakespeare's text. This Chetwin edition is often thought to precede the Clark edition issued the same year by a matter of weeks or months, making the present copy the first Davenant edition and the second quarto edition overall. Both 1674 editions, and indeed all Restoration quartos of Macbeth, are extraordinarily rare. Pforzheimer did not own anything earlier than the 1687 Davenant reprint, and only a handful of 17th-century printings have appeared on the market in 25 years. Wing S-2930.

Im Drucke erschienen dann freilich nur 1665 und 1670 Bd. 1 und 2 mit den Einsiedlerurkunden, 1674 Bd. 5 über Pfäffikon, 1681 Bd. 14 über Ittendorf, 1695 Bd. 3 über St. Gerold, letzterer ohne Titel und Index. Die für den Gebrauch im Stifte bestimmten Exemplare erhielten neben den Seitenzahlen noch eigene gedruckte Signaturbezeichnungen, welche mit denjenigen des Archivs übereinstimmten.? Dies trifft auf die im vorliegenden Band neben den Seitenzahlen gedruckten Versalien W bis Y (entsprechend den archivierten ?Capsulae? vigesima prima bis tertia) so zu, denn z.B. im Titel zum ersten Abschnitt heisst es ?Capsula XXI. qua continentur litterae W? - Inhalt : I.

Dazu finden sich Urkunden seit Beginn des 14.
