Verey's most famous garden design was that of her own house, Barnsley House, near Cirencester in Gloucestershire. In 1970 she opened the garden for one day to the public for the National Gardens Scheme but eventually it was open 6 days per week to accommodate the 30,000 annual visitors. In 1984 when her husband David died, Rosemary Verey began designing gardens for American and British clients. Most notable are HRH the Prince of Wales, and Sir Elton John, Princess Michael of Kent, the Marquess of Bute and the New York Botanical Garden. See Wikipedia.

        Vieni o Caro che senza il tuo core. Aria from Rinaldo. Musical manuscript. England, ca 1717 or later. Scored for soprano and keyboard

      This setting not in HWV (Rinaldo is HWV 7a and 7b; reference to new, unspecified arias for 1717 production, p. 109). Not in the Halle Halleische Hndel-Ausgabe or the Handel-Gesellschaft edition. One MS copy at the Foundling Museum, London (part of Gerald Coke Handel Collection; RISM no. 806930963). Allegedly published in Additional Favourite Songs in the Opera of Rinaldo as they are perform'd at the Kings Theatre Hay-Market by J. Walsh, London (?1731); however, the extant copies of that publication do not the present setting of the aria. Otherwise probably unpublished; sound recordings exist. Possibly part of Richard Divall's unpublished edition of the opera (MS at the National Library of Australia). According to George Frideric Handel: Collected Documents, vol. 1: 1609-1725, ed. Donald Burrows, Helen Coffey, John Greenacombe, and Anthony Hicks (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2013), Handel newly composed the aria on the occasion of the revival of Rinaldo on January 5, 1717 as an insert (act 2, no. 3) for the soprano Anastasia Robinson as Almirena. The aria is not related to the bass aria "Vieni o cara" from the same opera (act 1, no. 7) as sometimes claimed. The title of the present manuscript either suggests that the manuscript originally included all eight additions to the opera or that it was copied from Walsh's publication with the same title. Apparently an unrecorded early source.. Folio (298 x 240 mm). 4 pp. (one bifolium). Watermark "IV"; presumably the countermark to a "bend" watermark . Notated in brown ink on 12-stave paper. No ascriptions. Singer not identified. "8 Aditionall[!] Songs in Rinaldo" at the upper margin of the first page in scribe's hand. Three staves per system, with the vocal line on the middle staff. Upper staff in G clef, middle staff in C1 (soprano) clef, lower staff in bass clef. D minor; 3/8 time except for first measure at the entrance of vocal part, which is in common time (and unaccompanied). Text: Vieni o Caro che senza il tuo core questo petto piu viver non fa. E se Vive e porteno d'amore che alimento di speme gli da. Small tears to margins; some soiling (dust). Lower margin slightly foxed.

        Commentarii Historico Dogmatici

      Rome - Plachi 1717 - An extremely scarce copy presumed first edition of Cozza's dogmatic histories on the heresies of St. Augustine. Lorenzo Cozza (1654 1729) was an Italian friar Minor Observantist, Roman Catholic Cardinal and theologian. In his order, he filled the positions of lector of theology in the convent of Santa Maria in Aracoeli, lector of philosophy in the convent of Saint Diego (Naples, 1676), and lector of theology in the convent of Viterbo, where he also became guardian. He then returned to the convent of Aracoeli as lector of theology and, later, in 1696, guardian. For five years, Cozza was master of Francesco Antonio Placidi, friar Minor and future Saint Thomas of Cori. Cardinal Giulio Cesare Sacchetti chose Cozza as his confessor and theological adviser, thus giving rise to a friendship that lasted through life. St Augustine was one of the most prolific Latin authors in terms of surviving works, and the list of his works consists of more than one hundred separate titles. They include apologetic works against the heresies of the Arians, Donatists, Manichaeans and Pelagians, texts on Christian doctrine, notably De Doctrina Christiana (On Christian Doctrine), exegetical works such as commentaries on Book of Genesis, the Psalms and Paul's Letter to the Romans, many sermons and letters, and the Retractationes, a review of his earlier works which he wrote near the end of his life. Condition: Invellum bindings. Externally sound. Some marks to the boards. Front hinge of Volume II starting. Internally, firmly bound, though some hinges strained. Bookplate and library label to front pastedowns of each volume. Copperplate ink inscriptions to title pages. Lightspotting throughout, but bright. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        Neues Hebammen-Licht, bey welchen die Hebammen-Kunst und was darzu gehöret durch geschickte Handgriffe aufrichtig gelehret wird. . Aus den Lateinischen übersetzt .

      Jena, Heinrich Christoph Cröker, 1717, - kl. in-8to, Frontispiz-Kupfer + 6 Bl., Titel in Rot und Schwarz + 489 S. + 23 S. + 35 ausklappbaren teils gefalt. Kupfer-Tafeln mit 38 Figuren (ein Teil des 3. Kupfers abgerissen, einige unbedeut. falsche Falten und Fleckchen), durchgehend etwas gebräunt, neuer Halbpergament, Buntpapier auf den Deckeln, Rotschnitt. Eines der wichtigsten Werke in der Geschichte der Geburtshilfe! Die ursprüngliche niederländ. Ausgabe und die lateinische Übersetzung erschienen 1701 in Leiden. 1724 wurde noch ein 2. Teil veröffentlicht (insgesamt 144 S., ohne Fig.). Van Deventer würdigte zum ersten Male die Wichtigkeit des knöchernen Beckens, insbesondere der Beckenachse für den Geburtsvorgang in ihrem vollen Umfang. Damit begründete er die "Lehre vom Becken".Sein vorliegendes Hauptwerk ?mit seinen guten Abbildungen läßt den Fortschritt besonders deutlich erkennen. Namentlich erscheint die Diagnose der abnormen Kindslagen bei ihm erheblich verfeinert; nicht minder die Technik der geburtshilflichen Eingriffe, bei denen er dem manuellen Verfahren gegenüber dem instrumentellen bis zur äußersten Grenze den Vorzug gab. Das letztere erhielt eine seiner wichtigsten Bereicherungen durch eine Erfindung, die sich auf die Dauer als eine der wirksamsten und segensreichsten in der Geburtshilfe überhaupt erwies: die Geburtszange? (Meyer-St./Sudhoff 379 ff.). Nach Hirsch war Deventer ?der wissenschaftlich gebildetste Geburtshelfer seiner Zeit, denn seine Forschungen waren nicht nur bahnbrechend, sondern bilden bis heute noch die Basis, auf der die moderne Geburtshilfe ruht. Musterhaft ist auch das Verfahren, das er den Hebammen bei natürlichen Geburten anempfiehlt? One of the most important works in the history of obstetrics. The original Dutch edition and the Latin translating were published in 1701 in Leiden. In 1724 a second part was published. Garrison & Morton to the Dutch edition of 1701: ?This work gives the first accurate description of the female pelvis and its deformities, and the effect of the latter in complicating labour. .? Van Deventer has been rightly called the father of modern obstetrics, for his book and the interesting plates showing the various aspects of delivery and other facets of midwifery. His illustrations represented the pelvis more accurately than any other previous work. At the same time it is a pioneer work in the delineation of deformation of the spine. Copper plate showing 12 fig. in frontispiece + 6 leaves, title in red and black + 489 p. + 23 p. + 35 folding copperplates with 38 figures (part of the 3rd plate torn off), light browning throughout, half vellum binding, marbled paper somewhat rubbed, red edges.Please notify before visiting to see a book. Prices are excl. VAT/TVA (only Switzerland) & postage. Blake 118; Hirsch II/251; Waller 2420; vgl. Wellcome II/460, Fasbender 199, Garrison-M. 6253, Eimas 678, und Norman 631.

        Anti-Goeze ... D.i. Nothgedrungener beytraege zu den Freywilligen beytraegen des hrn. past. Goeze.

      Lessing was one of the fathers of German Idealism during the Enlightenment and among other things is remembered for having provided ?the foundation of a modern philosophy of religion" (Yasukata, Lessing's Philosophy of Religion and the German Enlightenment, p. 89). Johann Melchior Goeze (1717-86), a contemporary of Lessing, was a spiritual leader of the Lutheran Church in Germany and familiar with literature; he took up writing histories and apologetics and, because of their differing views on religion and ideals of the Enlightenment, he and Lessing entered into a debate.While the two are said to have remained cordial, the debate was so "bitter" that the Duke of Brunswick (Lessing's supporter) "intervened, silencing Lessing" (Oxford Companion to German Literature, 2nd ed., p. 554)! Printed here are Lessing's portions of the eleven exchanges in that debate.

      [Edinburgh] Folio (30.5 cm, 12"). 4 pp.. 1717 The battle between Ruth Pollock and the Campbells (or Calders, from their estate of Cawdor) rages on, with the Calder side strenuously denying that any legitimate marriage ever took place between her and Capt. George Campbell. Pollock, who called herself Campbell's widow despite apparently never having been acknowledged as his wife during his lifetime, was claiming a portion of the estate of his father, Sir Hugh Campbell; in this response to some of her petitions, lawyer John Fleming, acting on behalf of the Campbells, discusses the merits of various claims as pertaining to estate law.

        Histoire de l'Église du Japon

      Paris: François Montalant, 1717 2 volumes. [28]+659+[11] pages with 4 plates and index; [10]+678+[6] pages with 4 plates (one folding) and index. Quarto (10" x 8") bound in half leather with raised spine bands in gilt lettering to spine over marbled boards. (Streit-Dindinger VI, 1418.) Second edition of a 1689 history of missions to Japan prefaced with a general account of the country.Jean Crasset was an ascetical writer, born at Dieppe, France, 3 January, 1618 and died at Paris, 4 January, 1692. He entered the Society of Jesus in 1638, became professor of humanities and philosophy, was director for twenty-three years of a famous sodality of men connected with the professed house of the Jesuits in Paris, and was also a successful preacher. Crasset is the author of many ascetical works, among which are:Methode d'oraison; Considérationes chrétiennes pour tous les jours de l'année; La chrétienne in soli tude; Dissertation sur les oracles des Sibylles, which was vigorously attacked; Entretiens pour la jeunesse. He also published in 1689 a Historie de l'église du japon which has been translated into several languages but which is considered inferior to that of Charlevoix. Crasset's history was scarcely original, for it was drawn in great part from the work which Father Solier had issued in 1627; he merely retouched the style and continued the narrative from 1624 to 1658. The objection is made that the work lacks precision, is heavy, and is crowded with details. The author attributed the origin of the persecution of 1597 to the imprudence of the friars in making their religious ceremonies public. There is a posthumous work of his entitled La foy victorieuse de l'infidélite et du libertinage. On 9 September, 1656, the Bishop of Orléans issued an interdict against him for having in one of his sermons charged several ecclesiastics with sustaining the propositions condemned by the Bull of Innocent X, Cum occasione (31 May, 1653). The interdict was removed in the following February.Condition:Nicely rebound in half leather. Contents toned and damp-stained, St. Charles Borromeo Seminary stamp on titles else a very good set.

        Arte de la lengua mexicana, breves platicas de los mysterios de n. santa fee catholica, y otras para exortacion de su obligacion a los indios.

      Mexico: Por los herederos de la Viuda de Miguel de Ribera Calderon 12mo. [13], 36, [1] ff.. 1717 Mexico saw a major rebirth of scholarly interest in Nahuatl during the first half of the 18th century, and Fr. Avila was a contributor to it. In his introduction here ("Al pio lector"), he explains why, despite the existence of the works of Molina, Carochi, Ribera, and Manuel Perez (whose enthusiastic endorsement ["Sentir"] is part of the preliminaries), he has decided to write and publish this grammar: "solo quitar algunas dificultades, que he reconosido [sic] en los que aprenden por el discurso de veinte anos." The work achieves this aim well. Moreover, Fr. Avila's extremely notable introduction has much to say about the physical and spiritual condition of the Indians at the beginning of 18th century and about the economic and social debt of the Spanish population to them. Sra. Leon-Portilla points out that among the "chats" (i.e, "platicas") that form the appendix, "las destinadas a lograr una buena confesion" are of => "gran importancia." This copy => escaped the Inquisition censors who after its publication insisted that the section on folio 34r-v, "Instruccion para ensenar lo que se resive [sic] en la Hostia" be lined through.

OUVRAGE D'ABORD MIS A L'INDEX puis en a été retiré, mais n'a jamais été formellement interdit, voir annotations rayées du Bibliothécaire du Monastère de la Visitation de Marseille "Cet ouvrage est à l'Index" et bref historique dessous.María de Jesús de Ágreda, née María Fernandez Coronel (1602-1665), en religion S?ur Marie de Jésus, l'abbesse de Ágreda, mystique espagnole. Née à Ágreda en Vieille-Castille, dans une famille de quatre enfants, elle entra dans l'Ordre de l'Immaculée Conception le 13 janvier 1619 avec sa mère et sa s?ur, alors que son père et ses frères entrèrent dans les frères du Saint-Sacrement. À partir de 1620, elle vit une série de visions extatiques du Saint-Esprit, de la passion du Christ, de la Pentecôte, de l'Enfant-Jésus et de la Reine des anges. Elle tombait en ravissement devant le Saint-Sacrement et semblait avoir un don de lévitation. Elle dut toutefois subir des assauts occultes. Choisie comme abbesse en 1627, elle RECOIT LES APPARITIONS DE LA SAINTE VIERGE QUI L'AURAIT CHARGEE D'ECRIRE SA VIE. SON OEUVRE PRINCIPALE EST LA CITE MISTIQUE. QUI FIT L'OBJET D'une CONTROVERSE et subit LES ATTAQUES VIOLENTES DE BOSSUET. Décédée en 1665, sa cause en béatification fut introduite en 1671 et elle fut déclarée vénérable huit années plus tard. - LES HUIT LIVRES de la Mistica Ciudad de Dios, réécrits trente-trois ans après les visions primitives, suivent l'ordre de la vie de la Vierge Marie. L'ouvrage comprend trois parties : . de la prédestination de la Vierge jusqu'à l'Incarnation (livres 1-2), de l'Incarnation à l'Ascension du Seigneur (livres 3-6), de l'Ascension à l'Assomption et au couronnement de Marie au ciel (livres 7-8). Chaque partie est précédée d'une introduction et, à partir du chapitre 16 du premier livre, d'une "Doctrina que me dio la Reina del cielo". Cet enseignement donné et une exhortation clôturent chaque chapitre qui décrit un épisode de la vie de Jésus (livres 3 à 6) et de Marie (livres 1 à 8). Le sujet de cette histoire reste cependant Marie, Cité mystique en laquelle Dieu habite et se complaît. - A LA MORT DE MARIE, les DIFFICULTES SURGISSENT. En effet, le procès en vue de sa béatification demandait l'examen de la Cité mystique de Dieu. Une commission diocésaine rendit un jugement favorable en 1667. En même temps l'ouvrage était révisé par une commission de huit théologiens franciscains, révision qui servit de base à l'édition princeps de 1670. Plus tard, en 1674, l'ouvrage fut déféré à l'Inquisition espagnole, qui l'approuvait en juillet 1686 après un long examen de quatorze ans. Entre-temps, les adversaires de la Cité mystique de Dieu avaient fait appel à l'Inquisition romaine. Ce tribunal suprême publia un décret prohibant la lecture de l'?uvre, le 4 août 1681, mais les rois d'Espagne obtinrent des Papes Innocent XI, puis d'Innocent XII que la publication de ce décret soit suspendue là où elle n'avait pas encore été faite. - Au milieu d'autres vicissitud

Disbound A pamphlet proposing the establishment of a "Company to enlarge trade and commerce, employ the poor, improve navigation, advance the King's revenues; and for the common good of all merchants and traders whatsoever." Clearly hoping to benefit by the success (thus far) of the South Sea Company, it seeks to raise 200,000 pounds, "which may be managed by Directors chosen by the Subscribers, in such a manner as the south-Sea or other Companys." The proposal lays out twenty-eight articles for the government of the company, which also aims to "lend money six months or a longer time without interest, unto all merchants or importers of goods, to pay the King's customs, and for the speedy discharge of ships."

        Arte de la lengua mexicana, breves platicas de los mysterios de n santa fee catholica, y otras para exortacion de su obligacion a los indios

      Mexico: Por los herederos de la Viuda de Miguel de Ribera Calderon 12mo. [13], 36, [1] ff.. 1717 Mexico saw a major rebirth of scholarly interest in Nahuatl during the first half of the 18th century, and Fr. Avila was a contributor to it. In his introduction here ("Al pio lector"), he explains why, despite the existence of the works of Molina, Carochi, Ribera, and Manuel Perez (whose enthusiastic endorsement ["Sentir"] is part of the preliminaries), he has decided to write and publish this grammar: "solo quitar algunas dificultades, que he reconosido [sic] en los que aprenden por el discurso de veinte anos." The work achieves this aim well. Moreover, Fr. Avila's extremely notable introduction has much to say about the physical and spiritual condition of the Indians at the beginning of 18th century and about the economic and social debt of the Spanish population to them. Sra. Leon-Portilla points out that among the "chats" (i.e, "platicas") that form the appendix, "las destinadas a lograr una buena confesion" are of => "gran importancia." This copy => escaped the Inquisition censors who after its publication insisted that the section on folio 34r-v, "Instruccion para ensenar lo que se resive [sic] en la Hostia" be lined through. Evidence of Readership? Or, frugal management of paper? Or, something else entirely?? A singular quality of this among all the copies that we have ever seen is the presence of => two additional leaves (four pages) at the end containing => 18th-century manuscript notes in Nahuatl for a sermon on the theme of "they who acquired divine happiness" and on conducting a confession. Provenance: Sold by the Linga Library of Hamburg as a duplicate. Pencil notes of a Spanish bookseller. Recased in modern vellum with button and loop ties, some few leaves strengthened at inner margins. Last leaf of text torn in lower margin and expertly repaired, costing small portion of two letters; a bit of staining at some edges, particularly in early part of volume.

A rare example of a work in Portuguese printed in Vienna; the printer apologizes for any errors that slipped into the text, "mais de ignorancia que da incuria" (final page). An abridged version of this work was published in 1787 under the title @Relação verdadeira da jornada que desde Lisboa fez a corte de Vienna d'Austria o Conde de Villar-Maior .The author accompanied the Conde de Villar-Maior, Fernando Telles da Silva, to Vienna in 1708 to complete arrangements for the marriage of D. João V to D. Maria Anna of Austria, and to escort D. Maria Anna back to Lisbon. Telles da Silva's party travelled to London, then to Rotterdam, the Hague and Vienna. Fonseca gives descriptions of the United Provinces, England, Germany and the Court of Vienna, and also of such events as the celebrations at Vienna when Telles da Silva made his ceremonial entry.The work is dedicated to D. João Gomes da Sylva, Conde de Tarouca.Fonseca was born at Évora in 1668 and became a Jesuit in 1686. He studied humanities at Funchal before accompanying Telles da Silva as his confessor. After this trip, Fonseca travelled to Rome with P. Alvaro Cienfuegos, later a cardinal, and while there served as Procurador Geral das Missões do Oriente. He died in Rome in 1738. José Silvestre Ribeiro, quoted in Innocêncio, describes Fonseca as "um escriptor muito engraçado e escrupulosamente justiceiro."*** Innocêncio II, 376; IX, 291; @Aditamentos 138.

        A Grant of Arms to Sir Christopher Batt by Sir John Vanbrugh and Peter Le Neve

      Manuscript, London 1717 - [4] A College of Arms scribal copy of Sir John Vanbrugh's grant of a coat of arms to Christopher Batt in 1717. This is a contemporary copy written on Vanbrugh's behalf (possibly to a family member) which would have accompanied a vellum grant of arms originally bearing the seals of Vanbrugh and a second herald, Peter Le Neve. The document is written on a folded bifolium of foolscap sized paper with the watermark showing the Royal Crest and 'Honi soi qui mal y pense'. The paper has old fold marks and has several short, closed marginal tears. The College of Heralds' scribe has written in a regular forward sloping hand on behalf of Vanbrugh as Clarencieux Herald and Le Neve as Norroy herald. The document begins: 'To all and Singular to whom these Presents shall come greeting Sir John Vanbrugh Kn.t Clarencieux King of Arms. send greeting.' The document which runs to about 500 words describes the suit on behalf of 'Christopher Batt of Kensington' who has entered his descent in the 'Visitation Book' of Wiltshire but 'there being no arms entered with the said Descent' and by the 'neglect of Sr Edw'd Bysshe' declared that an earlier coat of arms should be assigned as 'Sr Christopher Batt is a person of good Reputation, Loyalty and affection to his Majesty's Person & Government'. Vanbrugh continues: 'Know ye therefore that we the L'd Clarencieux and Norroy. have devis'd with his Ldship's approbation bearing date the 18. day of June. assign unto the said Christ'r Batt the Coat of Arms and Crest hereafter Mention'd'. The arms and crest are described in the main text and again in a supplement on the verso of the first page. The document concludes with scribal signatures of Vanbrugh and Le Neve. Sir John Vanbrugh's astonishing career encompassed his activities as dramatist, architect, and opera impresario as well as soldier-adventurer, prisoner in the Bastille, and Clarencieux King of Arms. The Catalogue of English Manuscripts 1450-1700 (CELM) points out that Vanbrugh's manuscript remains are varied: 'many of them are preserved in his originals (either autograph or scribal and signed by him, some simply docketed by him), many others in contemporary copies, and some even written entirely on his behalf.' This example would appear to be a scribal original. It comes from the archive of John Thomas Batt, a Wiltshire lawyer and grandson of Christopher Batt. Please contact Christian White at Modernfirsteditions if you would like more information about this document. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Editio Novissima ab innumeris mendis repurgata novis ac necessariis additionibus ut & Summariis denuo largiter aucta. Cum speciali Sacr. Caes. Majest. Privilegio. [Von Johann Brunnemann].,

      Lipsiae, Sumptibus B. Johannis Christophori Tarnovii haeredum (Leipzig: Johann Christoph Tarnow) 1717 - Vortitel, Kupfertitel, Titel in schwarz-weißem Druck mit Kupferstichvignette, (18), 1360, (182) Seiten. Johann Brunnemann (1608-1672) studierte Philosophie und Theologie in Wittenberg. Nach dem Erhalt einer ordentlichen Professur für Logik 1636 wendete er sich von der Theologie ab und den Rechtswissenschaften zu, in denen er 1638 zum Doktor promovierte. 1640 Professor der Instituten an der Juristenfakultät, 1645 übernahm er die Vorlesungen über die Pandekten, 1646 die des Codexes, 1653 der Decretalen und übernahm damit am 8. Oktober 1653 das Ordinat der Juristenfakultät. 1664 wurde er kurbrandenburgischer Rat und hatte Zeit seines Lebens mit Benedict Carpzov Auseinandersetzungen. (Steffenhagen in ADB III, 445-446). - Der ganzseitige Kupfertitel zeigt eine allegorische Genealogie des vorliegenden Kommentars zum Codex Iustinianus, der aus den Rechtssammlungen des Kaisers Theodosius des Jüngeren entstand, dem wiederum die Sammlungen durch Gregorius und Hermogenian vorangegangen waren. Am Fuße des Kupferstiches finden sich Abbildungen des Dekalogs ("ad hujus exemplum"), eines Panzerhandschuhs, der einen Igel ergreift ("consilio et armis") sowie einer zeitgenössischen Feldkanone ("non solum armis"). - Auf dem zweifarbigen Titel befindet sich eine Kupfervignette als Herstellungswidmung. - Dem Titel folgen zwei Lobgedichte der Juristen Immanuel Brettschneider (1616-1686) und David Müller an Brunnemann. - Der Codexkommentar entstand aus Vorlesungen Brunnemanns, die er über mehrere Jahre gehalten hatte. Mehr als der Pandektenkommentar diente er der Rechtspraxis. Die gesamte forensische Jurisprudenz, die einschlägigen Monographien und Kommentare vor allem des deutschsprachigen Rechtsraumes wurden eingearbeitet. Der Codexkommentar spiegelt das geltende Recht Mitte des 17. Jahrhunderts wieder und ist das erste Werk seiner Art, welches europaweit rezipiert wurde. Die Legalordnung des justinjanischen Codex diente der Nutzbarkeit im Geltungsbereich des europäischen Jus Commune. (Coing, Handbuch Privatrechtsgeschichte II/1, 542). - Solider Pergamenteinband stellenweise leicht, am Rücken etwas deutlicher fleckig. Ecken leicht bestoßen und Schnitt angestaubt. Innengelenk etwas abgeplatzt sowie Vortitelblatt am Rand etwas knickspurig und berieben, Papier gewellt und stellenweise gebräunt. Die Seiten 201, 615, 623 und 685 sind fehlerhaft paginiert. Insgesamt erfreulich gut erhaltenes, intaktes und vollständiges Exemplar des bedeutenden, erstmals 1663 erschienenen Kommentars. - The Codex Justinianus (Latin for "Justinianic Code" or "The Code of Justinian") is one part of the Corpus Juris Civilis, the codification of Roman law ordered by Justinian I early in the 6th century AD. The commentary by german legal scholar Johann Brunnemann is one of his two great and influencial works and contributions to jurisprudence of 17th-century europe. - Cover of contemporary parchement due to age slightly stained. Cuts slightly shopworn and paper tanned but sound. copper engravings complete and intact. Overall pleasing good copy. Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 4990 2° (35 x 25 cm).

After rededicating himself to the church and becoming an ordained priest at the age of fifty, Calderón de la Barca renounced writing secular comedies for commercial theatres. At the king’s insistence, however, he continued writing for the stage, devoting himself literarily to producing mythological plays for the palace theatres and to a particularly Spanish genre known as the auto sacramentalâ€" one-act allegories illustrating the mystery of the Eucharistâ€" for open-air performance during the feast of Corpus Christi. This collection includes 72 such autos (almost all of the 74 by Calderón known to have survived) and their accompanying loas, or preludes. Ornamented with woodcut head- and tailpieces. Owner signature in Volume VI. Manuscript titling on spines of IV-VI in a different hand from I-III, though still contemporary.Text quite clean and fresh. Expected slight darkening to vellum.
