[LUTE] HUNT, Arabella 1662-1705
London, 1706. Chaloner Smith: British Mezzotinto Portraits 137. Kinsky 231-3. "Hawkins mentions that 'she was unfortunate in her marriage: nevertheless she lived irreproachably, and maintained the character of a modest and virtuous woman'. In fact, her 'marriage' was to another woman (Amy Poulter, already legally married but disguised as a man under the name of James Howard)... She was a favourite of both Queen Mary and Queen Anne (to whom, as Princess, she had given singing lessons). Hawkins tells the well-known anecdote: The Queen [Mary] having a mind one afternoon to be entertained with music, sent to Mr. Gostling ? and Mrs. Arabella Hunt, who had a very fine voice, and an admirable hand on the lute, with the request to attend her; they obeyed her commands; Mr. Gostling and Mrs. Hunt sang several compositions of Purcell, who accompanied them on the harpsichord; at length the queen beginning to grow tired, asked Mrs. Hunt if she could not sing the old Scots ballad 'Cold and Raw', Mrs. Hunt answered yes, and sang it to her Lute... There is much contemporary evidence for the beauty of her voice, but she does not appear to have sung on the public stage." Ian Spink in Grove Music Online. Congreve (1670-1729) was a noted English playwright and poet of the Restoration period. The author greatly admired Hunt and wrote a lengthy ode to her, "On Mrs. Arabella Hunt Singing.". 347 x 254 mm. + narrow margins. Printed on laid paper.

MURATORI LUDOVICO ANTONIO
nella stampa di Bartolomeo Soliani stampator ducale. Due volumi di cm. 23, pp. xii, 599 (1); xii, 483 (1) + (8) [le 8 pagine n.n. in fine, contengono l'aggiunta al secondo volume con una raccolta di sonetti di Giovanni Battista Zappi]. Alcuni bellissimi capilettera istoriati. Legatura coeva in piena perg. rigida con titoli ms. al dorso. Macchiette e minime tracce d'uso alle legature, fioriture sparse, lievi e sporadici aloni (soprattutto all'angolo della seconda metà del secondo volume). Esemplare nel complesso genuino e in buono stato di conservazione. Ludovico Antonio Muratori (1672-1750), nativo di Vignola, è considerato il padre della storiografia italiana. Così la voce M. a cura di Giorolamo Imbruglia a proposito di quest'opera (Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, volume 77): "Il Della perfetta poesia italiana apparve a Modena nel 1706. Per cogliere la verità della poesia Muratori propose non esempi ma «difetti» da evitare (I, 2); insofferente per il gretto purismo e attento alla lingua come fenomeno dinamico, polemizzava contro la rigidità del classicismo arcade e contro i trattati rinascimentali e del marinismo. Nell'arte risplende un aspetto della verità del mondo (I, 5), dal quale deriva una nuova percezione della realtà (I, 6), che il poeta deve «perfezionare» (I, 8), e le azioni umane vi hanno così senso universale (I, 8-12). Contro il razionalismo cartesiano e la tesi del rispecchiamento, trovò la radice della poesia nell'espressione di uno stato d'animo da parte del «furore poetico», secondo l'espressione largamente usata. Il libro II studia l'ingegno e il gi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Til, Salomon v.
Leipzig, Matthias Groot, 1706. Seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe. Sehr geschätztes und materialreiches Werk, nicht nur über die "biblische", d. i. speziell Psalmenmusik, sondern über die kultische Musik der Antike überhaupt (z. B. bei den Panathenäen, röm. Gottesdiensten usw.; ein besonderes Kapitel über den Dienst der Cybelet). Ausführlich werden die Musikinstrumente der Antike behandelt und mit teils ganzseitigen Holzschnittillustrationen mit Saiten-, Blas- und Schlag- (oder sonstigen Lärm-)Instrumenten veranschaulicht. Auch Musikanten und Musikantinnen, Tänzerinnen, Szenen auf Münzen u. a. werden abgebildet. Mehrere zum Thema gehörende Stellen aus griechischen und römischen Poeten (Homer, Diogenes, Vergil, Ovid, Catull, Prudentius usw.) sind in guten deutschen Versen wiedergegeben. "Tils Buch ist wohl das erste ausführliche Werk über dieses Thema und blieb für längere Zeit maßgeblich, wie die späteren Auflagen und Übersetzungen beweisen. Er versuchte eine Gesamtdarstellung der sangbaren Poesie der Hebräer, wie ihrer Musikpraxis und ihres Instrumentariums unter Einbeziehung des klassischen Altertums" (Seebaß). Der Verfasser Salomon van Til aus Wesop bei Amsterdam (1644-1713) war Professor der Theologie in Leiden. Er war der Doktorvater von Barthold Hinrich Brockes. Die niederländische Ausgabe war zuerst 1692 in Dordrecht erschienen. – Die Exemplare bei Seebaß und in der Sammlung Schocken hatten nur 5 Bl. Vorstücke.

WAFFER [ou WAFER] (L.)
Cellier, Paris 1706 - 1 volume in 12, plein veau granité, dos à nerfs orné. 3 ff.n.ch., 398 (4) pp. Ex-libris héraldique non-identifié. Edition originale de la traduction française, elle est ornée de deux cartes gravées dépliantes dressées par Nicolas de Fer.  Lionel Wafer, chirurgien de métier exerça quelques années en Jamaïque. Il participa egalement aux voyages de Linch, de Dampier et prit part à toutes les expéditions qui eurent lieu dans la mer des Antilles et dans l'Atlantique. En 1681, à cause d'une blessure, il fut abandonné sur l'isthme de Darien avec quatre de ses compagnons anglais. Dès lors il vécut avec les sauvages, se nourrissant de la chasse et de la pêche. Il quitta finalement l'isthme en 1684.   Son voyage imprimé pour la première fois en anglais (1699), contient le récit de ces années passées sur l'isthme de Darien, de précieuses informations sur les moeurs et coutumes des indiens qui y habitent ainsi que sur ses productions naturelles. On y trouve également beaucoup de particularités intéressantes, et d'excellentes observations sur la Nouvelle-Espagne. Ce texte est la première et la meilleure description de l'isthme de Panama.   On y a inséré également le récit de l'expédition du Capitaine Davis aux mines d'or qui illustrent ces 3 années de piraterie que l'auteur passa à ses côtés entre 1685 et 1688.   Bel exemplaire, quelques restaurations anciennes et 1 mors fendillé.

A Ville-Franche, chez Paul Pinceau, 1706. - in-12. 6ff. 203pp. (mal num. 193). Pleine basane mouchetée de l'époque, dos à nerfs avec traces de dorure, filet à froid autour des plats (restaurations aux coiffes et au plat inférieur, la pièce de titre manque au dos). Très rare pamphlet, dans son édition apparemment la plus complète. La première était parue en 1703. C'est un spirituel tableau des grands courtisans du règne de Louis XIV, décrivant l'esprit et les moeurs de plus de 70 notables de la Cour. L'ouvrage se montre, en particulier, très hostile à la Marquise de Maintenon. On trouve à la fin (pp. 162-193) un chapitre fort intéressant, intitulé "Remarques sur les Revenus de la France". L'auteur, après avoir analysé l'origine des revenus de l'Etat, en donne une évaluation très détaillée, "d'autant plus curieuse qu'elle est fort exacte. On la tient d'une personne de bon sens et de probité, et qui avoit même quelque rang dans la Chambre des Finances". Travail de ver traversant le volume, touchant parfois quelques caractères mais sans gêner la lecture. Quelques feuillets roussis. Brunet, IV, 116
