        Bucaniers of America:

      London: William Crooke,, 1684 & 1685. or, a true Account of the Most remarkable Assaults Committed of late Years upon the Coasts if the West-Indies, by the Bucaniers of Jamaica and Tortuga, Both English and French. Wherein are contained more especially, The Unparall'd Exploits of Sir Henry Morgan, our English Jamaican Hero who sack'd Puerto Velo, burnt Panama, &c. Written originally in Dutch, by John Esquemeling, one of the Bucaniers, who was present at those Tragedies; and thence translated into Spanish, by Alonso de Bonnemaison, Doctor of Physick, and Practitioner at Amsterdam. Now faithfully rendred into English. [together with:] RINGROSE, Basil. Bucaniers of America. The Second Volume. Containing the Dangerous Voyage and Bold Attempts of Captain Bartholomew Sharp, and others; performed upon the Coasts of the South Sea, for the space of two years, &c. From the Original Journal of the said Voyage. 2 volumes, small quarto (205 × 160 mm). Late 19th century red crushed morocco by Bedford, richly gilt spine, three-line gilt border on sides enclosing central gilt panel with floriate corner-pieces, all edges gilt, richly gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers; housed in a custom made fleece-lined red cloth slipcase. The first-named with 4 engraved portraits, 4 engraved plates (1 double-page, 1 folding), engraved double-page map of Panama, allegorical head-piece, and a woodcut; the second with 2 engraved folding maps (one large), 13 full-page engraved maps and charts which are included in the pagination, a full-page engraved city-plan and 42 woodcuts of coastal profiles in the text. Embossed library stamp of Donald Duncan MacDermid on a preliminary binder's blank. Light bump to back bottom corner, map of South America skilfully repaired (short closed-tear in the margin), last three leaves skilfully remargined at the bottom edge and gutter. First English edition of Exquemelin; first edition of Ringrose. Exquemlin first appeared in Dutch in 1678, the present edition being translated from Alonso de Buena Maison's Spanish edition of 1681. The two works together form the primary contemporary source in English for the history of the English and French Buccaneers, or more politely 'privateers,' who harassed Spanish shipping and colonies in the Caribbean during the seventeenth century, as Sabin averred; "No book in any language was ever the source of so many imitations, and the source of so many fictions as this." A Huguenot native to Honfleur, Exquemelin left France in 1666 as an indentured servant bound for the Antilles. On Tortuga, he was sold to a nefarious government officer, and later resold to a doctor who taught him some of the skills of a barber-surgeon, offered Exquemelin his freedom for a price, and gave him a few surgical tools. By the end of the 1660's, Exquemelin became a flibustier, or privateer. He probably served with Jean-David Nau l'Olonnais, and participated in the raid of Maracaibo in 1669. He later took part in Henry Morgan's sack of Panama in 1670-71. Soon thereafter, Exquemelin abandoned piracy, returned to Europe, and studied medicine in Amsterdam, where he completed this account. He later returned to America several times as a ship's surgeon aboard Dutch and Spanish vessels. He writes in considerable detail about raids upon various settlements throughout the West Indies, fights with Indians, encounters with other pirates, and acts of torture committed by the marauding bands upon the region's inhabitants. Although some of his dates are questionable, Exquemelin's account is considered among the most reliable of the period. The second volume, containing Basil Ringrose's narrative of Bartholomew Sharp's depredations on the Pacific coast, is similarly prized for its accuracy; "He was…one of five buccaneers, including William Dampier and Lionel Wafer, who kept a journal of the expedition. His narrative is by far the most detailed account of the voyage" (ODNB). Ringrose is also renowned for his capture and copying of the Rosario's derrotero or waggoner, which contained secret pilotage instructions for the whole of the Pacific coast of America. It is extremely unusual to find the two volumes together in first editions; "It is more usual to find Volume I of the first edition alone; or Volume I of the second edition combined with Volume II of the first edition" (Church). A highly desirable volume, particularly so in this lovely binding by one of the foremost London bookbinders of the period.

       1684 Bildmaß der Darstellung: 12,5 x 16,5 cm ( Höhe x Breite ), Blattgröße ca. 29 x 18 cm. Mit oben- und untenstehendem alten Text mit Beschreibung des Schlosses zu Ragnit und Tilsit, alt unter Glas gerahmt ( Rahmenmaß: 31,5 x 21,5 cm ). Aus dem Text: *Nach der Zeit ward dieses Schloss genennet RAGNIT / von einem Wasser oder Flüßgen / welches nahe beygeflossen / wie es auch noch heutiges Tages heisset. Heutiges Tages ist es eines von den besten Schlössern im Herzogthum Preussen / doch sind die alten Gemächer fast nicht zu gebrauchen / so daß man andere Gemächer im Schloß hat müssen anbauen / daß der Hauptmann seine bequeme Wohnung darin haben möchte. Dabey ist heutiges Tages ein grosser volckreicher Flecken. Es ist auch schon vor der Ankunfft deß Teutschen Ordens daselbst ein Schloß und ein Dorff dabey gewesen / deren Nahmen man nicht findet. Im obgedachten 1289sten Jahre hat Meneko von Querfurt auch an der Memel das Schalauer Schlo gebauet / zu dem Ende / daß die bekehrten Schalovinier darinnen wohnen könten / wie Dusberg schreibet. Was dieses für eine Festung gewesen / und wie sie geheissen / setztet Petrus von Dusberg nicht. Allein andere Scribenten melden / daß im gedachten Jahre des Schloß TILSIT gebauet sey / so schliesse ich darauß / daß es eben dieselbe Festung sey / derer Petrus von Dusberg gedencket. Scheinet also / daß dieses Schloß anfangs nicht anders genennet sey / als die Schalauer-Burg / hernach aber / und zwar schon nach deß oftgedachten Dusburgs Zeiten / den Nahmen Tilse bekommen / sonst hätte er desselben Nahmen nicht verschwiegen / wenn derselbe schon zu seiner Zeit bekant.

        Nouvelles de la République des Lettres

      Desbordes - Pain - Mortier 1684-1718, Amsterdam - Legature coeve in piena pelle con nervi e ricchi fregi oro al ds. Carte di guardia e tagli marmorizzati in coloritura omogenea. Alcuni volumi recano al piatto anteriore la scritta in oro M. De Prangins . Ottime condizioni generali, salvo poche cuffie danneggiate. Interni freschi (carte ingiallite in tre voll.) e ben conservati (solo il Tomo I del 1704 ha uno strappo al frontespizio). Tutto il pubblicato (per lo più in prima o seconda edizione): insieme ai volumi curati da Bayle (marzo 1684-febbraio 1687), le continuazioni - intervallate da anni in cui la pubblicazione della rivista venne sospesa - di Daniel de Larroque e Jean Le Clerc (marzo-agosto 1687), Jean Barrin (settembre 1687-aprile 1689), Jacques Bernard (gennaio 1699-dicembre 1710, gennaio 1716-aprile 1718), Jean Le Clerc (maggio-giugno 1718). Si tratta del primo periodico che si prefisse l obiettivo di analizzare e segnalare al Pubblico (in precedenza lo scambio di informazioni e di valutazioni si svolgeva nella stretta cerchia degli intellettuali) le edizioni contemporanee pubblicate in Europa (Francia e Olanda soprattutto, ma anche Inghilterra, Svezia, Germania, Italia, ecc.) riguardanti gli argomenti più interessanti nel mondo pre-illuministico come la filosofia cartesiana, le religioni (con molteplici note sulla religione cattolica e protestante, ma anche con segnalazioni di studi sulla chiesa anglicana, sulla storia e gli usi degli ebrei, ecc.), i viaggi, le invenzioni ed i progressi delle scienze fisiche e matematiche e della medicina, e - sia pure in minor misura - le opere storiche e letterarie. Opera completa (descrizione conforme in B.N.F.) molto rara, quasi introvabile nel mercato antiquario, di questo eccezionale periodico (pubblicato in lingua francese in Olanda per sfuggire alla censura presente in Francia) che - come testimoniano le ripetute edizioni - ebbe ungrande successo in ambito europeo. 12mo (cm. 13,8), 66 Voll., ciascuno di circa 400 pp. con disegni n.t. e tavv. f.t.

        MID-ATLANTIC STATES & NEW ENGLAND: Novi Belgii Novaeque Angliae Nec Non partis Virginiae Tabula multis in locis emendata.

      - A fine example of Nicholas Visscher’s decorative archetype map of the ‘New Netherlands’, embracing the Mid-Atlantic region and New England. This sumptuous work of Dutch Baroque cartography depicts America’s Atlantic Seaboard from Virginia up to Maine. While this example is updated to 1684, the map evokes the era of ‘Nieuw Nederland’ the colony operated in the Mid-Atlantic region by the Dutch West India Company (the WIC) from 1613 to 1664, centred on ‘Nieuw Amsterdam’ (New York City). The eminent historian Isaac Newton Phelps Stokes described Visscher’s map as giving "the best and most complete representation that we have of New Netherland during the Dutch period; it may correctly be described as a scientific map, in the making of which advantage was taken of all the material available". (Stokes, Iconography, vol. II, p. 118) The first edition of the map was made in 1655, when the Dutch held dominance over the Mid-Atlantic region, and were in the process of expelling the Swedes, who had established a small colony near the mouth of the Delaware River. In 1664, the English, who had already established colonies in Chesapeake Bay and New England, which geographically ‘sandwiched’ the New Netherlands, conquered New Amsterdam and with it all of Dutch North America. While the Dutch briefly regained control of New York in 1673, they soon left for good, ensuring that the New Netherlands would only live on in the realm of nostalgia. Curiously, in spite of the Dutch bias of the map, an example of the first edition of 1655 was entered as evidence in the long running boundary dispute between the English colonies of Lord Baltimore’s Maryland and William Penn’s Pennsylvania. The map is dominated by Dutch nomenclature, as much of the Mid-Atlantic is named ‘Nova Belgica sive Nieuw Nederlandt’. New York Harbor is designated as the ‘Groote Rivier’ (the Great Rivier), the Hudson River is the ‘Noort Rivier’, the Delware River is the ‘Zuydt Rivier’, while the Catskills as the ‘t’ Landt van Kats Kill’, Long Island is ‘t’ Lange Eylandt’, Cape Cod is labeled ‘Nieuw Hollandt’, Martha’s Vineyard is ‘Texel’ or ‘Elizabets Eylandt’ and Nantucket is ‘Vlielant’ (the latter two places being names after parts of the Frisian Island chain in the Netherlands). However, as the preset edition of map was issued after the fall of the Dutch hegemony, various English names have crept in, including’ ‘Nieuw Jorck’ (New York), ‘Nieu Iarsey’ (New Jersey) ‘Pensylvania’, ‘Niew Englandt’ (New England) and Virginia. Numerous Native American villages and place names are labeled, including ‘Conittecock’, the origin of the name Connecticut. The map features many early Dutch and Swedish settlements, including ‘Nieuw Amsterdam’ (New York City, founded 1624), ‘t’ Fort Orangie’ (Albany, New York, founded 1617), ‘Beukelen’ (Brooklyn), ‘t’ Fort de Goede hoop’ (Harford, Connecticut, founded 1623); ‘t Fort Christina’ (the main Swedish settlement in America from 1638 to 1655, on the site of present day Wilmington, Delaware), ‘Fort Nassau’ (Gloucester City, New Jersey, across the Delaware River from Philadelphia). Several English settlements rare also depicted, including ‘James Towne’ (Viginia, founded in 1607), ‘Neu Pleymout’ (Plymouth, Massachusetts, founded in 1620) ‘Stamfort’ and ‘Milfort’ (Stamford and Milford, Connecticut). Most importantly, the present edition of the map labels Philadelphia, a very early appearance for the ‘City of Brotherly Love’, which was only founded by William Penn the year before this map was printed. One of the most magnificent features of the map is the fine profile view of New Amsterdam that appears in the lower right, being amongst the earliest obtainable views of New York City. Stokes asserted that the view is based on a sketch made sometime between 1651 and 1653, prior to the construction of the wall which ran among the northern perimeter of New Amsterdam, today commemorated by New York’s Wall Street. The map is further adorned with a bird’s eye view of t

        DESCRIPTION DE LA LOUISIANE, NOUVELLEMENT DECOUVERTE AU SUD OUEST DE LA NOUVELLE FRANCE

      Paris, 1684. 12mo. Bound to style in gilt calf, spine elaborately gilt. Very good. Lacks the map. A reissue of the first edition, published the previous year, with the original sheets but a new titlepage, of 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's later works, the truthfulness of his narrative herein is accepted by historians. "In 1684 sheets of this 1683 edition were slightly altered in two issues: the first merely adding a numeral I to the date; the second substituting a new titlepage with 1684 date and Auroy's imprint" - Howes. This copy is the latter, with the new titlepage. 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. It also includes an account of Hennepin's captivity among the Sioux. Few works in the history of American exploration are of greater importance. An important and foundational work.

Rare pamphlet describing two dreams supposedly predicting the fall of the Ottoman Empire. It was written by the German composer and novelist Daniel Speer (1636-1707) under the pseudonym "Designante Somniatore" and opens with some remarks on prophetic dreams with reference to the Old Testament. Speer's pamphlet, written immediately after the 1683 Battle of Vienna, expresses a deep-seated fear of the Ottoman Empire, which, thrusting into the heart of Europe, seemed a serious threat to Christianity. With manuscript annotation on the back of the frontispiece by "Joannes Jacobus Hausmohr", 1685, and contemporary ownership of the Salzburg Theological Seminary ("Ex libris Seminarij Salisb.") on title page. In good condition. VD 17, 3:310364C. Not in Atabey or Blackmer. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        SATYRAE [together with] SATYRARUM

      Henricum Wetstenium, Amstelaedami (Amsterdam) 1684 - Thick 8vo, This is a new edition ("Editio Nova"), with commentaries, a life of Juvenal, and a bibliography of various editions. Decimus Junius Juvenalis, known in English as Juvenal, was a Roman poet (1st to 2nd century AD), who wrote a series of poems which, together, are called the "Satires" ("Satyrae"). He wrote at least 16 poems in dactylic hexameter form, which were divided between five books, and which covered many, if not most, aspects of life in pagan Rome. There is no complete list of Juvenal's manuscripts but at least 500 medieval copies are known to exist. This copy is bound in vellum with an eleborate device embossed in gilt on the front board. As was the practice then, the spine is hand-lettered with the title, year, and showing was appears to be a Roman soldier, flanked by two maidens in front of whom kneels a satyr. All 16 of the poems are present, followed by a comprehensive index. The text encompasses 525 pages, but the index is unpaginated. Bound-in after this is the "Satyrarum" (Satirarum) of the 1st century AD Roman satiric poet Auli Persii Flacci (Aulus Persius Flaccus); in six books of 112 pages with an unpaginated index at end. Text throughout is in Latin. All pages clean, althought there is some rippling. One small burn hole (?) to front cover, usual staining to vellum, althought less than might otherwise be expected. Binding is good, although front hinge starting. Overall, a good, to good plus, copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The second published collection of the statutes of Virginia, covering the acts passed by the General Assembly between 1662 and 1682, including seminal material relating to slavery and Bacon's Rebellion: this copy with contemporary manuscript acts passed at 1684-85 sessions and with original provenance to a Virginia landowner and sheriff from Surry County. The genesis of the printing of these laws is recounted by Hall in THE HISTORY OF THE BOOK IN AMERICA, vol. I: "By the early 1680s the situation was becoming critical once again in Virginia. For reasons unknown, in the years since 1662 the assembly contented itself with scribal [i.e. manuscript] publication. That system yielded an interesting set of artifacts in the wake of Bacon's Rebellion, for the reformist legislation enacted by the assembly that met in June 1676 was subsequently repealed [see pp.197-199 of the present volume], obliging county clerks to eliminate the offending pages from their cache of manuscripts. The initiative to resume the technology of printing came from a first generation planter-merchant and sometime member of the House of Burgesses, John Buckner, who imported a press from Virginia along with an experienced printer William Nuthead, to run it. Nuthead set to work in late 1682 printing the session laws from the assembly that met in 1680, only to encounter the wrath of Governor Culpeper and the council, who in February 1683, having reviewed the first two sheets to pass the press, halted the process on the grounds that Buckner the printer had not been duly licensed. [Nuthead subsequently left Virginia with his press for Maryland].In the event it was an unauthorized edition that gave Virginians their second statute book.The intermediary was John Purvis, a London-based ship captain and merchant who often came to Virginia; laying hands on a manuscript compilation, Purvis took it back to London to be printed and returned with copies, some of which contained additional blank pages [as the present example]. In April 1684 the Virginia government repudiated the book on the grounds that it was published without License and directed county courts not to use it. Even so.the book seems to have passed into general use, for several of the surviving copies [including the present] bear handwritten notations indicating the repeal or altering of laws. Of more importance, some owners used these books to record new session laws on blank pages bound in with the printed text for this purpose [as in this copy]." Besides the many laws about tobacco, trade, duties, courts, roads, agriculture, etc., two categories of laws found within this volume bear specific mention: those related to Bacon's Rebellion and those concerning slavery. Earlier historians of presented Bacon's Rebellion during 1676 as a fore-shadowing of 1776, with Bacon cast as a proto-Revolutionary who was attempting to overthrow an oppressive government appo

Tchemerzine IX, 70. - Sehr seltene Ausgabe der "Lettres", neben dem französischen Originaltext zum ersten Mal die lateinische, spanische u. italienische Übersetzung in vier Kolumnen enthaltend. -Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) verfasste 1656/57 eine Serie anonymer satirisch-polemischer Broschüren. Diese waren sehr erfolgreich und wurden 1657 in Holland unter dem Titel «Provinciales, ou Lettres de Louis de Montalte à un provincial de ses amis et aux R. R. PP. Jésuites sur la morale et la politique de ces pères» als Buch gedruckt. Es sind achtzehn Briefe eines fiktiven Paris-Reisenden namens Montalte, von denen die ersten zehn an einen fiktiven Freund in der heimatlichen Provinz gerichtet sind, die nächsten sechs an die Pariser Jesuitenpatres insgesamt und die letzten beiden speziell an den Beichtvater des Königs. In diesen Briefen beschreibt Montalte zunächst in der Rolle eines theologisch unbeschlagenen und naiven jungen Adeligen, wie Jesuiten ihm altklug und herablassend ihre Theologie erklären; später, nachdem er quasi seine Lektion gelernt hat, beginnt er mit ihnen zu diskutieren und so scharfsinnig wie witzig ihre Lehren ad absurdum zu führen. Pascal persiflierte und attackierte so die zwar gewissermaßen verbraucherfreundliche, aber tendenziell opportunistische und oft spitzfindige Theologie ? die berühmte Kasuistik ? der Jesuiten und entlarvte ihren sehr weltlichen Machthunger. Die «Lettres provinciales» hatten, obwohl sie nach der Nr. 5 verboten wurden, bei Erscheinen der Buchausgabe auf den Index kamen und 1660 sogar vom Henker verbrannt wurden, großen und langandauernden Erfolg und bedeuteten längerfristig den Anfang vom Ende der Allmacht der Jesuiten, zumindest in Frankreich. Wegen ihrer Klarheit und Präzision gelten sie als ein Meisterwerk der französischen Prosa, das ihrem Autor einen Platz unter den Klassikern der französischen Literaturgeschichte verschaffte. 1200 gr.

The first collected edition in English, translated by John Phillips and Henry Oldenburg: an account of Tavernier's travels to Turkey, Persia, India, and Japan (with large map of Japan), containing reports about the Japanese persecution of the Christians and the Dutch settlements in the Far East. Book Two, chapter Nine of the Persian Travels is of particular interest, as it contains an account of Tavernier's voyage through the Arabian Gulf, mentioning Bahrain, Bandar Abbas, Qeshm, and Hormuz and making observations on the pearl-fishing, people and navigation of the Gulf. There is also a bird's-eye map of the Strait of Hormuz showing the Musandam Peninsula (peppered with palm trees and captioned "A promontorie of Arabia the happey"), Hormuz, Larak, and Qeshm island, as well as Bandar Abbas and Bandar Kong on the Persian side. Intruguingly, this engraved map also includes depth soundings throughout the Gulf, making it useful as an early "Persian Gulf Pilot". A separate, illustrated chapter discusses extensively the invaluable pearl in the collection of the Imam of Muscat. Another illustrated chapter discusses "The Money of Arabia". In general, the plates depict festivals, processions, costumes, views, and images of the Eastern flora and fauna as well as coins and gems. - Title-page rehinged. Repaired tear to first leaf of contents. Faint marginal dampstain along lower edge of first several leaves; occasional browning, final leaves of text cleaned with some minor marginal restoration, but well-preserved on the whole.

        Les Comparaisons des grands hommes de l'Antiquité qui ont excellé dans les EDITION ORIGINALE

Chez François Muguet, à Paris 1684, in-4 (18,5x25cm), xxviij ; 305pp. (20) 388pp. (12), deux tomes reliés en un volume. - Edition originale, rare, parue anonymement, citée par Barbier dans son Catalogue des livres de la bibliothèque du Conseil d'Etat. Plein veau brun de l'époque. spine à cinq nerfs ornés de caissons dorés. Toutes tranches mouchetées rouges. spine-end de tête élimée, même chose pour la spine-end de queue. Epidermures. Une pâle mouillure marginale. Le père Rapin, entré chez les jésuites en 1639 fut, outre un poète latin apprécié de son temps, un critique, un historien et un théologien. La méthode de la comparaison ou de la confrontation entre deux oeuvres ou deux personnages fut souvent utilisée au XVIIe, l'auteur ainsi étudie des doublons comme Démosthène et Ciceron, Homère et Virgile, Thucidide et Tite-Live, Platon et Aristote, opposant à chaque fois deux grands personnages d'une même discipline, deux oeuvres, deux pensées. Cette première partie est suivie de Réflexions sur les 4 parties qui forment les belles-lettres : la poétique, l'éloquence, l'histoire et la philosophie ; l'ensemble de ces dissertations suivent une conception aristotélicienne du discours. Bien que ce type d'oeuvres sur les écrivains de l'Antiquité eut de nombreux suiveurs, il faut reconnaître à Rapin un sérieux éminent et une grande connaissance de son sujet ; il constitue un témoignage éloquent de ce que furent les belles-lettres au XVIIe siècle. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

        Cajus Valerius Catullus. Et in eum Isaaci Vossii observationes.

      London Isaac Littlebury 1684 - 2 Blätter; 327 (recte 343) Seiten; 15 Blätter. (19,7 x 16,3 cm) 8°. Auf dem Rücken und den Kanten goldgeprägter, zeitgenössischer Lederband über fünf Bünden, das Titelschild fehlt, altes Bibliotheksschildchen aus Papier auf dem Rücken. Ebert 3782. Schweiger I 84 f. Dibdin I, 379 "[Vossius] commentary, accompanying the poems of Catullus, is elegant and erudite, though not free from occasional indelicacies of thought and illustration. . the London one is rare, according to Harles .". Lowndes I, 367. Londoner und Leidener (D. à Gaesbeeck) Paralleldruck, die erste in England gedruckte Catull-Ausgabe, was wegen der dort herrschenden Prüderie nicht verwundert, die nächste folgte 1702 in Cambridge und noch 1961 unterdrückte der Herausgeber eines Catull-Kommentares der Oxford University Press mehr als 30 der insgesamt nur 116 überlieferten Gedichte, die hier vorliegende Voss-Ausgabe war textlich vollständig. Wohl auch die erste Quelle für einige der 1685 verstreut erschienenen Übersetzungsversuche einzelner Catull-Gedichte ins Englische. Mit altem, handschriftlichem Besitzeintrag "Ioan. Gothot. Richteri" auf dem Titelblatt, dort auch ein ausgestempelter Bibliotheksvermerk. In dieser Handschrift und Tinte vereinzelt Mariginalien im weißen Rand. Es kommen mindestens drei zeitgenössische Johann Gottfried Richters in Frage, so daß eine eindeutige Provenienzzuschreibung nicht möglich ist, am wahrscheinlichsten erscheint uns jedoch dieser: "Richter, Johann Gottfried (1763 - 1829) . geb. in Leipzig, gest. in Eilenburg; Kaiserl. russ. Rat, sachs.-weimar. Hofrat, seit 1774 Hauslehrer in Moskau, seit 1808 Privatgelehrter in Eilenburg." ex: (http:)//thesaurus.cerl.org/record/cnp00353204 Der Einband ein wenig sperrig und berieben, teils mit kleineren Fehlstellen und Bereibungen, am vorderen Gelenk unten etwas eingerissen, innen durchgehend mit Wasserspur, dafür jedoch alles in allem noch gut erhalten. * Zahlung mit VISA/ MASTERCARD möglich. Versand mit Deutsche Post oder DHL. * 2500 gr. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
