Engraved allegoric frontispiece, titlepage printed in red and black, Xylographic head-letters, head- and tailpieces. FIRST EDITION OF A WORK DEVOTED TO TALISMANS AND AMULETS THEIR MYSTERIOUS POWERS AND THE DIFFERENT WAYS OF MAKING THEM The work is also a reasoned bibliography of 550 authors who dealt with talismans and amulets from the most remote antiquity --the invention of the first amulet dates back to Cam, son of Noah-- until the seventeenth century. Arpe gives information on the Chaldeans, on Egypt and other ancient civilizations with a comprehensive picture of the development of magical thought from the early Greek philosophers (Orpheus, Pythagoras, Plato) to the esoterism (Hermes Trismegistus, Proclus) until the most recent authors of the Renaissance and Modern Age (Marsilio Ficino, Cornelio Agrippa, Paracelso, Trithemius, Fludd and Kircher). The fifth chapter is dedicated to the materials used to make amulets: metals, stones, herbs, and the techniques used to make them effective as magical objects. The sixth one concerns the relationship between talismans and astrology, chiromancy, ancient alphabets, images and magic words, including the sympathy or antipathy between men and stars and between microcosm and macrocosm.

London: Printed by S. Richardson, and Sold by A. MillarÉJohn RivingtonÉand R. and J. Dodsley. Elizabeth Carter (1717-1806) was a noted member of the Blue Stocking Circle. Despite an early learning disability and Òwith a persistence that won the praise of V. Woolf in A Room of OneÕs Own,Ó (as Margaret Drabble reminds us in the Oxford Companion to English Literature) she learned Latin, Greek, and Hebrew in childhood with her brothers, and later studied French, Italian, German, Portuguese, and Arabic. She was a friend of Samuel Johnson, who thought her one of the best Greek scholars he had known, and invited her to contribute to The Rambler. She made a number of translations, of which this is considered her masterpiece. It was undertaken at the request of her friend, Catherine Talbot, who arranged for publication and solicited subscribers, amongst which were a large number of women, and members of the Johnson circle. Quarto. 18], xli, [1], 505, [11] pp. With a scholarly introduction to the Stoic philosophers by the translator, an impressive list of subscribers, and an index and appendix of variant readings.

VAIRASSE d'AILLIERS, Denis.
Nürnberg, J. F. Rüdiger, 1717. Kl.-4to. Gestochenes Frontispiz, 1 Bl., 362, 100 S. Pappband d. Zeit mit Kleisterpapierbezug u. modernem Rückenschild (gering berieben, Rücken etwas verblaßt). Titelauflage der dritten deutschen Ausgabe. Die erste und wichtigste Schrift des französischen Utopismus und einer der bedeutendsten und unterhaltsamsten, wenngleich wenig bekannten utopischen Staatsromane des 17. Jahrhunderts. Das auch für die Entwicklung der Gattung Roman bedeutende Werk wurde noch 1783, über hundert Jahre nach seinem Erscheinen, erneut ins Deutsche übersetzt. Es inspirierte Swift zu "Gulliver's Travels" und Defoe zu seinem "Robinson Crusoe". Nach Erscheinen des ersten Teils in London (1675), wohl von Vairasse in englischer Sprache verfaßt, folgte die erste französische Gesamtausgabe in Paris (1677-79). Im Anhang berichtet A. Roberts, Übersetzer und Bearbeiter, das Algerienabenteuer eines "T. Smith". Dieser Text erschien zuerst 1670 in London (Cox I, 362). Das "T. S." auf dem Titel verweist auf Smith. Dagegen ist der im Roman enthaltene "Brief" eines "Thomas Skinner" nur Stilmittel im Dienst der Glaubwürdigkeit der Utopie. Dieses Bemühen um Plausibilität ist entscheidend. Der utopische Staat ruht auf denselben Fundamenten wie der wirkliche. Nicht das Phantastische, sondern das Wahrscheinliche interessiert. Das utopische Experiment zielt auf eine Chance zu größerer Gerechtigkeit. Vairasse wird zum Vorläufer des modernen Sozialismus. Erst unter Führung des Staatsgründers Sevarias (Anagramm: Vairasse) entwickeln sich die Severambier im fiktiven Australien - das reale is … [Click Below for Full Description]
