1700. Es handelt sich hier um eine seltene Osianderbibel in der die vorher dreibändig erschienene Osianderbibel erstmal in einem Druck aufgelegt wurde. Die Bibel enthält neben dem Luthertext theologischen Anmerkungen des Theologen Andreas Osiander. Dieser wurde vor allem durch den Osiandrischen Streit und sein Vorwort für das Hauptwerk Kopernikus bekannt. Gedruckt bei den Sternen in Lüneburg. Neben Nürnberg und Frankfurt damals eine der besten Druckereien. Davon zeugt auch das große Format und die hohe Druckqualität des vorliegenden Exemplars. 40 cm Hoch und 12 cm dick Gewicht: 9,8Kg. Mit 3 exzellenten Titelkupfern (Titel, Propheten, NT), 4 Karten (4 doppelseitige - die Kupfer zeigen Karten Kanaans, des Hl. Landes und Asia Minor sowie einen Plan von Jerusalem und ein Kalendarium (sogen. Leseplan), 1 Textkupfer mit Porträt Osianders sowie Register. Diese Bibel war größtenteils somit unbebildert, da die Bilder nicht vom Inhalt ablenken sollten. Dieses Exemplar ist in guter Verfassung. Das heißt: Nicht wurmstichig (bis auf ein einziges Loch was am Ende über 10-20 Seiten geht). Kaum verfärbt und ausgerissen (Nur eine Karte und ein Fleck 5x5cm Einbandvorder-/Rückseite). Kaum verschmutzt oder verdreckt. Nicht beschriftet, bemalt... Einzig die Kupfertafeln sind etwas mehr abgegriffen. Siehe Bilder.

London: John Walsh, 1700. First English Edition, second impression, containing the Bouche frontispiece. Marx, p. 174. Smith 31. Smith and Humphries 428. BUC, p. 220. Sartori II, p. 198. RISM C3804. The first six sonatas are "church" sonatas, while the second six (with a separate title) are "chamber" sonatas, the last of which is actually the Follia, one of the most renowned compositions of Baroque string literature.The first edition of Corelli's Opus 5 was printed by Gasparo in Rome, followed shortly thereafter by Estienne Roger in Amsterdam and John Walsh in London. In an advertisement, Walsh described his edition as "Engraven in a curious Character, being much fairer, and more correct in the Musick, than that of Amsterdam" (London Gazette, 26 August 1700). Walsh's second impression was issued shortly after, now including the engraved frontispiece by Bouche after Meloni, similar to that in the Gasparo edition but with "XII Sonatas by Arcangelo Corelli His V Opera" placed in the shield."Despite the modest size of his output, comprising six collections of instrumental music and a handful of other authentic works, and its virtual restriction to three genres - solo sonata, trio sonata and concerto - Corelli exercised an unparalleled influence during his lifetime and for a long time afterwards. This influence, which affected form, style and instrumental technique in equal measure, was most closely felt in Italy, and in particular in Rome, where he settled in early manhood, but soon spread beyond local and national confines to become a European phenomenon.

Josiah Cotton/Indian Missionary
1700. 5 in x 7 in Latin New Testament in poor condition; missing title page and both covers and some parts of the book of Revelation signed 4 times by Josiah Cotton early Native American Missionary: Born in 1680 in Plymouth, Massachusetts, Josiah Cotton was the son of Jane (née Rossiter) and John Cotton Jr. (1639-1699), a prominent Indian missionary and son of John Cotton, a leading Puritan clergyman in New England.His father was the town's fourth minister and the eldest son and namesake of Boston's most venerable pastor and theologian. He had ministered to well-established communities of Native Christians on Martha's Vineyard and Cape Cod. Virtually all of Cotton's uncles, brothers, and cousins pursued successful ministerial callings, while aunts and sisters married eminent country clergymen.[4] In 1698, Cotton graduated from Harvard College. 1698-1707, he served for several years as schoolmaster in the fishing community of Marblehead before returning to his native Plymouth. In 1707, he married Hannah Sturtevant, the only child of a prosperous Pilgrimfamily. He also petitioned the New England Company for an appointment. In 1729, Governor Samuel Shute appointed him justice of the peace and quorum. As a civil magistrate, Judge Cotton rose to considerable heights, but in what he called his "Indian Business", the lay missionary labored in the long shadow cast by his father. From the start, however, Cotton's missionary enterprise was vulnerable. Unlike John Eliot, Experience Mayhew, and his own father, he had no settled pastorate. Instead, he spent the majority of this time pre … [Click Below for Full Description]

BARDON, Michel Francois Dandré].
1700. Colas 792; Lipperheide 107; cf. Brunet I, col. 654. First and only Dutch translation of the Costume des anciens peuples by Michel-François Dandré Bardon (1700-1783). The 345 plates (instead of the 356 erroneously announced on the title page), preceded in each part by the descriptions, illustrate the costumes and the customs of the ancient peoples in the field of their religions, everyday life and the military. Parts 1 and 2 contain the plates illustrating the Greek and Roman civilisation, part 3 the Israelites and the Egyptians and part 4 the Persians, Scythians, Amazons etc. Bardon gave a large part of his life to the study of ancient history and he liked to illustrate the subjects of his study with his own hand. Some of his drawing are still in the Louvre Museum and some of his paintings are in the Museum in Marseille. Some water stains to the last few plates of both volumes, bindings slightly rubbed and a large blemish to the front board of the first volume. A good copy, untrimmed.

MASIUS, Hector Gottfried
Lubecæ: Johannem Wiedemeyerum, 1700. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Hector Gottfried Masius was a 17th-century German Lutheran author who was known for his works defending Lutheranism, religious philology, and attacks on paganism. One such work was 'Historico-Philologicum' a work in which Masius describes the history of idol worship, creation and destruction of idols, consulting oracles and future-seers, sorcery and witchcraft, and warnings against such behaviors to Slavs, Obotrites, and other Northern German tribes under the House of Mecklenburg. This 1700 edition of Masius' 'Antiquitatum' features a dissertation in the appendix entitled 'The Existence of Demons', a work that Masius originally published in 1682.

The title page for the first part is dated 1700, the title page for the second part and the Hawkins dedication are dated 1760, so it seems to be the 1760 edition. the book is clean, tight, square and unmarked with contemporary spine covering of tan calf with five raised bands and bright gilt titles. The boards appear to be the original in brown leather and brass clasps at the fore edge. They have been rubbed to rounding at the corners. The front paste down has the name of John Bell Thirsk. The first part has 302 clear pages with occasional toning and some minor damp stain in the upper corner spine for a dozen or so page near the end. The second part has 128 pages plus an index. The frontispiece of part 2 is a plate of Cotton. Both parts are illustrated with black & white plates. The spine covering has been replaced making this a very handsome book. As this book is from the library of American Impressionist J. Alden Weir, the father of Caroline Weir (Caro Weir Ely), artist, print maker, book binder, there is a chance it was she who did this work.
