        Critique generale de l'Histoire du Calvinisme de M. Maimbourg. Seconde edition, Revue & beaucoup augmentee.

      Ville-Franche, Pierre le Blanc [i.e. Amsterdam, P. et J. Blaeu, "a la sphere"], 1683.. In-12, plein velin ivoire rigide de l'epoque a recouvrement, (14) de titre, preface, errata et table, 661 p. Seconde edition tres augmentee et corrigee, publiee anonymement quelques mois apres la premiere, a Amsterdam, chez P. et J. Blaeu, selon Rahir, 'Elsevier', n°2769. Dans la preface a cette seconde edition, Bayle desavoue la premiere publiee, selon lui, sans son consentement: "Je prie [mes lecteurs] de s'attacher a cette seconde edition, & de ne s'en prendre pas a la premiere, car j'en desavoue tout ce que je n'en ay pas transporte dans celle cy" (f.*4). "Livre d'action" (Devolve), cet ouvrage fonda la reputation de Pierre Bayle en matiere de tolerance religieuse et de liberte de conscience. Sous le biais de considerations sur la methode historique critique, refusant de s'aligner sur le ton convenu de la controverse religieuse, Bayle releve avec moderation les erreurs et omissions de l'ancien jesuite Maimbourg, qui mettait sa plume au service du roi. Quelques mois avant la revocation de l'Edit de Nantes, il consacre une importante partie de son essai a revendiquer le loyalisme politique des huguenots francais et a defendre la tolerance universelle en matiere de croyance religieuse. L'ouvrage, qui eut un grand retentissement, fut severement interdit et condamne, le 9 mars 1683, a etre brule de la main du bourreau. (Devolve, n°7. A. Sauvy, 'Livres saisis a Paris', n°1017). Bel exemplaire, tres frais, tres bien conserve dans sa premiere reliure de velin..

      Frankfurt. 1683. - [273]-304pp. Gathered signatures, unbound. Lightly tanned. Very good. In a half morocco slipcase. A variant printing of the second German edition of the founding tract of Pennsylvania, William Penn's SOME ACCOUNT OF THE PROVINCE OF PENNSYLVANIA. Penn's description of the new province was first published in London in 1681; there were three English, two German, and one Dutch editions in the next two years, all aimed at stimulating emigration to America. This German edition is a variant of the one described by Bonner & Fraser, and was originally published as part of a German periodical, DIARIUM EUROPAEUM. Penn begins his tract by reviewing successful colonization efforts in history. He then discusses Pennsylvania, ".describing the location, climate, water, soil, and air. He went on the explain how easy it was to reach the Atlantic for trade.products and resources available, and crops that could be the second section, Penn wrote about how the province would be governed, and promised that no laws would be made or taxes raised without the consent of the freemen. He promised to consult with the first purchasers in writing the constitution. The proprietor then outlined conditions under which land could be obtained.he combined practical information about the opportunities for farmers, craftsmen, and younger sons with a call for men of special spirtitual maturity.Penn offered practical advice about the cost of passage, what to take, and how much capital would be conclusion, Penn asked readers to be realistic about the problems as well as the opportunities" - Bronner & Fraser. All editions of Penn's tract are rare. Plainly in the case of German emigrants, this tract was particularly successful in encouraging emigration.

Contemporary half vellum, spine with red gilt lettered label, marbled sides. First book on salamanders. The present work is an expanded version of the author's dissertation 'Salamandra', published in 1677. "He dissected salamanders and described the food contents in the stomach. He confirmed that 'Salamandra' is live bearing and found 34 larvae in one female. He also observed the shedding of the animal's epidermis. And he proceeded to rebunk most of the prevailing myths... The plates illustrate the external appearance of several species, the larvae, eggs, skeleton, internal organs including the urogenital system, and mythical figures from emblems and hieroglyphics. The two titles represent the first comprehensive basis for our modern understanding of salamander biology' (Adler 2, p. 18). J.P. Wurffbain (1655-1711) was a German physician.

      Stargard, gedruckt bey J.N.Ernsten. - 2 Bl. (Titelblatt mit ganzseitigem Holzschnitt verso und Publikationsedikt), 150 S., 1 Bl. (Index), neuerer Halbpergament-Band, 32 x 21 cm. Selten. Das VD 17:1:017076G mit der Angabe: Gegeben zu Potstam den 9. April 1683, erschienen ca. 1700. "Eine neue, selbständig zu würdigende Epoche der preußischen Rechtsentwicklung begann mit der Regierung des Großen Kurfürsten (1640 - 1688). Die Entwicklung der europäischen Verhältnisse hatte dem Kurhause Hohenzollern nicht unbeträchtliche Gebietserwerbungen ermöglicht (.) Kleve, Mark, Ravensberg, (.) der Westfälische Frieden endlich brachte 1648 Hinterpommern, Halberstadt, Minden, Kammin (.). Diesen verstreuten Gebieten fehlte es an jedem staatsrechtlichen Bande, das sie mit der Kurmark hätte einigen können." (E.Schmidt, Rechtsentwicklung in Preussen, S. 12f.). Die Überwindung des landschaftlichen, ständischen Sondergeistes und die Entwicklung einer Idee des Gesamtstaates durch "die Schaffung eines stehenden Heeres, die Verselbständigung der Steuerwirtschaft und Finanzverwaltung, aber auch die Produzierung eines neuen Amtsrechtes" (a.a.O., S. 13) ist das Verdienst des Großen Kurfürsten. Die vorliegende Hofgerichtsordnung behandelt die Bestallung des Gerichts, beschreibt die Aufgaben und Pflichten der Räte, des Protonotario und Secretario, der 'Bothmeister', 'Cantzelisten' und 'Copiisten', der Diener und Boten, der 'Sollicitanten', das Amt des 'Advocati Fici', dann die Strafen für 'untaugliche Gerichts-Personen' und ihre Abschaffung, sowie Rechte und Pflichten der 'Advocaten, Anwälden und Procuratoren', ihre 'Gewalt und Vollmacht' und ihre Besoldung, dann die 'Notarien' und ihre Taxe, nennt die verschiedenen Eidesformeln der Beteiligten, verfügt 'Was Sachen an unserem Hof-Gericht anzunehmen' sind, welche Appellationen angenommen werden sollen, wie die 'summarischen und schleunigen Processe' zu führen sind, wie oft im Jahr Gericht zu halten und welches Procedere einzuhalten ist (Supplicationibus, Gerichts-Ladung, Contumacien, etc.), behandelt dann den Kläger und den Beklagten, sowie deren Eidesformeln und -folgen, das Beweisverfahren und die Anhörung von Zeugen, dann Beschluß und Urteil, die Gerichtskosten, den Vollzug, Anfechtungsmöglichkeiten und enthält zum Schluß die Verordnung, wie in 'Fiscalischen Processen zu verfahren' ist. Zustand: Titelblatt und 2 weitere Blätter mit kl. Eckabriß, die ersten beiden Blätter mit kaum lesbarem, altem Stempel (einer Behörde?), leicht gebräunt. Interessant an dem vorliegenden Exemplar sind die gut lesbaren, zeitgenössischen Marginalien.

      London William Cademan 1683 - And more especially in that of the tyrant and usurper Oliver Cromwell. In which you have a clear view of the arbitrary, illegal, and unjust proceedings of those persons under the notion of liberty. And a compendious history of those times, faithfully collected; with the characters and lives of several of those usurpers, and a brief account of the several persons that suffered death and imprisonment under them, for their loyalty to the King and country. And by which may be seen the difference between arbitrary usurpers and lawful kings, reigning by, and according to the laws of the land. Illustrated with several brass cutts, representing the chief persons and passages therein. SECOND EDITION 1683, 12mo, approximately 150 x 85 mm, 5¾ x 3¼ inches, 4 engraved plates as required, 2 with 4 images each, pages: 92, 93-96 numbered as leaves, 97-156, 169-216, irregularities in pagination found in all copies, collated and guaranteed complete, bound in full old calf with blind rules and corner ornaments to covers, expertly rebacked with original blind decorated backstrip laid on, gilt lettered label, endpapers renewed at some time. Corners slightly worn, tiny scrape to lower cover, ink name on front endpaper and reverse of frontispiece, tipped onto reverse of frontispiece is an engraving of Cromwell from another book, frontispiece and plates faintly foxed, tiny rust hole in 1 page with loss of 2 letters, easily legible, light browning to some pages, occasional small light stain, small ink stain to 1 page, all still legible, from page 169 to the end many pages are cropped at the fore-edge, in some places shaving or losing the letter at the end or beginning of the line, almost all is easily legible. Binding tight and firm. A good copy of an anti Cromwell item. Our researches have uncovered nothing about the author who is not to be confused with the poet Thomas May who died in 1650. Most cataloguers give his dates as circa 1645-1718 and refer to him as Sir Thomas May, M. P. The date of the first edition is unknown as no copy is listed in the major libraries nor in ESTC. On the front pastedown is the small "JE" label which indicates that the book was sold in Christie's sale of the library of the Evelyn family and may have belonged to John Evelyn himself. It can be identified by the cropped fore-edges which are described in Christie's Catalogue of the Evelyn sale (Part III, No. 1005). MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

        Relation du Voyage de Monseigneur l'evesque de Beryte, Vicaire Apostolique du Royaume de la Cochinchine [bound with] Relation abregee des mission et des voyages aux Royaumes de la Chine, Cochinchine, Tonquin & Siam

      1683 - Exceptionally bound, primary French source-books on Vietnam, Siam & and the Far East. 1683 & 1682. Paris. Charles Angot. Two volumes in one, in 8vo. Eighteenth-century sang-de-boeuf calf, triple rule gilt border to boards, spine richly gilt in compartments, all edges gilt, expertly recased, some wear to boards, corners very slightly bumped. A fine copy lightly browned, ownership inscription to first title. A finely bound copy of the first French accounts of Siam ?that of Bourges-, with early relations on China, Vietnam, Tonkin and the East Indies. The Bourges is in its third edition and the Pallu in its second edition (all editions are rare). Father de Bourges (c.1630 - 1714) was a member of the first Catholic mission to Siam, arriving with his two fellow missionaries in 1662 to Ayuthaya. Since Siam was tolerant of other religions it became a safe place for the missionaries to establish themselves, and in 1664 a second group led by Monseigneur Pallu joined the fathers in Siam after a two-year journey overland. Francois Pallu (1626 - 1684) was a French Bishop and missionary in Asia and a founding member of the Paris Foreign Missions Society; he was originally recruited by Alexander de Rhodes and sent to the Far East along with other missionaries ?namely La Motte. Both volumes together combine a considerable portion of the French knowledge of the East at the end of the 17th century. Distinguished provenance: Charles de Lorraine (possibly Charles III, Duke de Elbeuf), his signature on the first title page. Cordier Sinica, 827. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Rites of Funeral, Ancient and Modern, in Use Through the Known World . to which is added A Vindication of Christianity against Paganism.

      R. Royston 1683 & 1682, London - Hardcover. Small octavo. Two volumes in one, each with separate title page. [xii] + 308pp. + [xvi] + 128pp. Later full leather binding with gilt lettering & rules on spine. Fresh endpapers. Two books in on volume, each separately paginated and with it's own title page. The "Vindication of Christianity against Paganism" has the year 1682 on the title page, whilst the "Rites of Funeral" has the year 1683. The "Rites of Funeral" is a translation, by Paul Lorrain, of "Les ceremonies funebres de toutes les nations" by Pierre Muret, an early study of funerary rites and customs. It includes chapters on the rites of the "Egyptians, Grecians, Romans, Persians, Turks, Chinese, Americans, of some Islanders, of the Tartars" and on "Living Sepulchres, Fiery Sepulchres, Water-Burials, Airy Obsequies, Burials Above Ground," etc. etc. The chapter on the funerary customs of various native American tribes must surely be amongst the earliest specific studies of the subject. The second part, by Paul Lorrain, is titled: "Marcus Minucius Felix, His Octavius; or, A vindication of Christianity against Paganism," London 1682. Curiously the page following the title page bears the translator's dedication to Samuel Pepys - the English naval administrator and Member of Parliament who is now most widely remembered on account of his rather salacious diaries, although these were not published until many decades after his death. Page-edges darkened, the first blank page has a lengthy but unobtrusive contemporary pen inscriptions & lacks a small piece from the top corner. Top margin cropped so that it touches the running head on a few leaves. Faint toning to pages, still a solid, complete VG copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Première édition de cette traduction. Celle-ci fut établie et abondamment annotée par le jésuite aveyronnais Pierre Rodelle (1622 Saint Côme-1695 Montpellier), elle connut une seconde édition à Paris chez Claude Thiboust et Pierre Esclassan en 1686. Horace naquit en 65 avant J. C. à Venosa, aux frontières de l'Apulie et de la Lucanie, dans le sud de l'actuelle Italie, et décéda en 8 avant J. C à Tibur. Il reçu une éducation soignée et étudia le grec et la philosophie à Rome et Athènes. Suite à l'assassinat de Jules César en 44 avant Jésus Christ, il commanda une legion dans l'armée des > de Brutus. Après la bataille de Philippes le 22 octobre 42 avant J. C. et la défaite de Brutus (qui se suicida), face à octave et Marc Antoine, Horace, vaincu et amnistié retourna en Italie. Réduit à la pauvreté, il se mit à la poésie. En 17 avant Jésus Christ, il composa le ''Chant séculaire''. En 35 et 29 avant J. C. il publia les ''Satires'', recueils en hexamètres dactyliques de dix et huit pièces. Les épodes, publiées en 29 avant J. C., sont écrites en distiques, formées de 625 vers, dont 4 probablement apocryphes. Les odes furent publiées entre 23 et 7 avant Jésus Christ, en 4 livres de 3 038 vers, dont 6 apocryphes. Enfin les ''Epîtres'' furent publiées en 19/18 avant Jésus Christ, composés de 1 006 dont 7 probablement apocryphes, 270 et 206 vers. S'y ajoute ''l'Epitre aux pisons'', plus connu sous le nom ''d'Art poétique'' en 476 vers. Ce sont des lettres fictives dans lesquelles Horace y a déposé son testament spirituel et la quintessence de sa sagesse. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Several Treatises, Written Upon Several Occasions

      London - Joanna Brome, 1683 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A collection of eight writings by George Morley, bound in one volume. &#39;Both before and since the King&#39;s Restoration: wherein his judgement is fully made known concerning the Church of Rome and most of those Doctrines, which are controverted betwixt Her and the Church of England. &#39;First edition. Including a Preface, A Summary of a Short Conference with a Jesuit at Brussels, An Argument drawn from the Evidence and Certainty of Sense against Transubstantiation, A Vindication of the Argument drawn from the Sense against Transubstantiation, a Sermon preached before the King at Whitehall, Nov. 5, 1667 and three letters and several texts in Latin to rear followed by a Postscript. George Morley D. D. (1597 - 1684) was an English bishop. His works are few and chiefly polemical. In 1641 he was made canon of Christ Church, Oxford and exchanged to the rectory of Mildenhall, Wiltshire. He preached before the House of Commons in 1642, but his sermon gave offence, and when in 1647 he took a prominent part in resisting the parliamentary visitation of Oxford University he was deprived of his canonry and living. Leaving England, he joined the court of King Charles II, and became one of the leading clergy at The Hague. Shortly before the Restoration he came to England on a highly successful mission to gain for Charles the support of the Presbyterians. In 1660, he regained his canonry, and soon became Dean of Christ Church. In the same year, he was consecrated Bishop of Worcester. At the Savoy Conference of 1661 he was chief representative of the bishops. He was translated to the see of Winchester in 1662 and made Dean of the Chapel Royal in 1663, a position he held until dismissed by King Charles in 1668. With previous owner&#39;s bookplate to front pastedown with ink inscription to it and a further ink inscription to title page. Condition: Expertly rebacked in buckram, preserving original leather boards with handwritten spine label. Externally, sound butwith wear and slight lossto extremities and boards.

A partir del año 1500, la obligada conversión al cristianismo de los mudéjares dio lugar a la huída de gran parte de la población morisca al norte de África. La Corona vendió al licenciado Luis Zapata, del Consejo de Su Majestad y Veinticuatro de Sevilla, los lugares de la taha de Çueyhel, lo que se llevó a cabo por Real Provisión de la reina Juana de 7 de febrero de 1505. Por dicha compra se asumieron todas las propiedades raíces que habían sido de los moriscos huídos. (fuente: Archivo General de Andalucía) Luis Zapata: Licenciado, consejero Real, letrado de las Cortes, de los Consejos de Estado, Guerra, Indias y Justicia, en tiempos de Fernando el Católico y Carlos V, fue el 1er Señor del estado de Çehel de las Alpujarras, y fundador de su mayorazgo estableciendo la sede en Albuñol, desde donde controlaba la costa en previsión de incursiones berberiscas del norte de África.El cuerpo fundamental de los documentos relativos a este señoríos conforman el fondo Alpujarra-Zapata, del archivo de los condes de Cifuentes, que durante mucho tiempo estuvieron en la capilla de San Juan Bautista de Llerena y que hoy día forman parte del Archivo General de Andalucía." Año: 1683

      Paris: Chez la Veuve Sebastian Hure, 1683.. [12],312,107pp. plus folding map. 12mo. Contemporary French calf, spine richly gilt in six compartments, raised bands, gilt title on spine, marbled paper pastedowns, edges of text block speckled. Boards lightly worn. Front and rear free endpapers with very slight worming (but no worming to text leaves). Two closed tears in the map near the gutter (one of three inches, the other of two inches; both confined to the cartouche), neatly mended and with no loss. Very clean and fresh internally. A handsome copy. The first book by the famous Recollet missionary and explorer, Father Louis Hennepin, and a foundation work of Canadiana and Americana, particularly for the Great Lakes region. Unlike some of Hennepin&#39;s later works, the truthfulness of his narrative herein is accepted by historians. Hennepin accompanied the great French explorer, the Sieur de la Salle, on his 1678-79 expedition from Fort Frontenac to Niagara, then on to the Illinois country where Hennepin was directed to explore further on his own. He ultimately ascended the Mississippi River as far as the Falls of St. Anthony, near where he was captured by the Sioux and held for some time before being released. This book is the narrative of all these adventures, and is notable for its many "firsts": the first use of the name "Louisiana"; the first good account of the Illinois country and upper Mississippi; the first detailed account of the Sioux; and the first navigation of the Great Lakes. The map, titled "Carte de la Nouuelle France et de La Louisiane Nouuellement Découuerte," is equal to the text in terms of descriptive firsts, and is one of the most important American maps of the colonial era. "[It shows] for the first time La Louisiane, Sault de St. Antoine de Padou (on the site of present- day Minneapolis), and Lac de Pleurs [lake of tears], present Lake Pepin. A faint dotted line indicating the surmised course of the lower Mississippi River is approximately located" - Schwartz & Ehrenberg. This line is of particular note. As Wheat points out, La Salle and later French cartographers recorded the course of the river as progressing further west, making Hennepin&#39;s map remarkably accurate in this regard for its time. Given the combined significance of the text and map, few works in the history of American exploration are of greater importance. A handsome copy of a foundation work, very rare in the original edition, with a fine example of the equally rare map. HOWES H415, "c." EUROPEAN AMERICANA 683/96. GRAFF 1858. GREENLY, MICHIGAN 8.

        Sefer EMUNAT SHMUEL Emunath Shemuel

      [Publisher unkonwn], Frankfurt am Main, Germany 1683 - Title printed within typographical border. The author was one of the foremost Talmudic scholars and preachers of his generation. After the Chmielnicki massacres of 1648-49, he fled to Vilna where he became a member of the Beth Din of the Chelkath Mechokek together with the Shach, R. Shabbetai He-kohen and the Shaar Ephraim, the grandfather of R. Yaakov Emden. Subsequently he served as Rabbi of many important communities, including Cracow, Brisk and Frankfurt. His major works include Breath Malevich on Kodashim; Birkath Shmuel, kabbalistic sermons; Tifereth Shmuel on the Rosh, and others. Many of his reponsa are cited as a basis for rulings by later authorities until the present. One of his controversial rulings here is responsum number 26, where he states that although in the times of the Talmud one teacher sufficed for 25 pupils, in this generation "when our hearts have been reduced to the size of hole in a thin needle," it would be preferable that the equivalent of ten, or at most 12 students would be properly supervised. 64 leaves. Running title: She'elot teshuvot Emunat Shemu'el. This book was published by the author's son, Zvi, after his father's death. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Quinquaginta Relationes ex Parnasso de Variis Europae Eventibus. Adjuncta est ratio status Davidis Judaeorum Regis tribus libris comprehensa.

      Hamburgi, apud Paulum Nicolai, 1683. - in-8. frontispice. 6ff. 376pp. Plein veau brun, dos à nerfs orné, triple filet doré encadrant les plats, armoiries frappées au centre avec, dans les angles, le chiffré doré également reproduit dans le semis ornant les entre-nerfs (reliure de l&#146;époque). Edition Originale de cet ouvrage rare et curieux composé à l&#146;imitation des célèbres 'Relations du Parnasse' (1613) de Trajan Boccalini (1556-1613), ouvrage satirique cité dans la préface. Employant la même liberté de ton, il évoque à travers des relations imaginaires différentes questions politiques ou littéraires de l&#146;Europe de son époque. On trouve notamment les chapitres suivants : "Chinenses recipiuntur in Parnassum ; obtinent Jus venum exponendi merces Politicas" mettant en scène des Chinois, "Demonstrat Theophrastus Paracelsus quam exigua prudentia in vita indigeamus humana", "Renatus Cartesius Aristotelem publice appellat &#145;Asellum Arefactum&#146;" où Descartes traite en public Aristote de "petit âne desséché", "Deliberat Apollo cum Virtuosis de remedenda Multitudine Librorum" traitant de la trop grande abondance des livres et des moyens d&#146;y remédier, "Demonstrat Thomas Campanella Thaleti Milesio quam fallax ex cognitione sui ipsius in conjectandis aliorum animis sit conclusio", etc. A la fin de l&#146;ouvrage se trouve un petit texte avec page de titre séparée, exposant pourquoi David était devenu le Roi des Juifs. Adam Ebert (1658-1735), jurisconsulte allemand qui avait notamment publié le récit de ses voyages à travers l&#146;Europe, était un caractère fantasque qui "eut la singulière idée de répandre le bruit de sa mort et comme il s&#146;était lié, dans ses voyages, avec la plupart des savants et des littérateurs de l&#146;Europe, on fit sur lui une multitude d&#146;éloges funèbres et de pièces en vers, dont le curieux recueil se trouve encore à l&#146;Université de Francfort" (Larousse). Précieux exemplaire relié aux armes de Julie-Lucie d&#146;Angennes (1607-1671), duchesse de Montausier, et de son époux le pair de France Charles de Sainte-Maure, duc de Montausier (1610-1680). Le duc de Montausier était membre de l&#146;entourage proche de Louis XIV ; il s&#146;était notamment rendu célèbre par la confection du recueil poétique 'La Guirlande de Julie', composé en l&#146;honneur de sa future femme et auquel collaborèrent tous les beaux esprits du temps. Bel exemplaire. 2 exemplaires répertoriés dans les bibliothèques américaines (cf. NUC). Olivier, Manuel de l&#146;Amateur de Reliure Armoriées Françaises, planche 451. Quentin-Bauchart, Les femmes bibliophiles, I, 229-240. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Der Churfürstl. Sächs. Handelstadt Leipzigk Kauf- Und Handels-Recht

      [Leipzig]; Christolph Günther. 1683. Boards bound with Latin missal with musical notation. 16mo. (4) , 132, 4 pages. Only edition. In German. A compendium of regulations of the City of Leipzig. Of special interest are the edicts concerning Jews: "Leipziger Juden-Ordnung de anno 1682." The relationship between this city in Saxony and the Jews is an anomaly. On the one hand, Jews were banished from Saxony in 1430 - (it took three centuries for them to be readmitted to Leipzig) . On the other hand, on account of the seasonal Leipzig Fair, the number of Jewish merchants present in the City would swell to the point that these visitors were formally authorized to conduct gatherings in their own prayer-rooms ("Judenschulen") . Indeed, permitted to attend the Fair were not only German Jews, but Jews of Eastern Europe as well. In the present text, Johann-Georg III, Duke of Saxony, mandates several laws concerning Jewish tradesmen and the nature of Jewish participation in the Fair. In order to attend, the Jew required attestation to his professional honesty ("ein Ehrlicher Handelsmann") (par. 1) ; he was forbidden to lodge in the suburbs (par. 2) ; and at all times, he must be in possession of his various individual passes (pars. 3-6) . Also, legal-clauses are addressed to the wives, children and servants of the Jewish tradesmen visiting (pars.10-12) . Of peculiar note: Jewish musicians were barred from trading altogether (par. 21) . See JE, Vol. VII, pp. 673-4. Subjects: German Law. Books before 1700. OCLC lists 14 copies worldwide. Backstrip detached. Binding very solid. Paper missal over boards torn in places and foxed. All edges lightly bumped. Pages lightly foxed around text throughout, fresh and clean otherwise. Good condition. (GER-38-46) .
