While he accepted the basic concerto and sonata form from the Italian school, and their belief that the violin should be more than an instrument pour faire danser, he retained many French elements in his music, the most characteristic being the use of the gavotte, menuet, or other dance form as the slow middle movement and the fully written-out melodic embellishment of the solo pieces." Elizabeth Keitel and Marc Signorile in Grove online The Meyer collection, formed over a period of some 75 years, was one of the most important collections of printed music, musical autographs, and books on music of the 20th century.

        An answer to Isaac Pennington [sic], Esq; his book intituled, Observations on some passages of Lodowick Muggleton's interpretation of the 11th chapter of the Revelations

      London: Pr. by subscription 4to (21.1 cm, 8.25"). [2] ff., 24 pp.. 1719 Lodowicke (or Lodowick) Muggleton (1609–98) was, along with his cousin John Reeve, the founder of the Muggletonians, a small Christian sect that denied the doctrine of the Trinity, believed that God would no longer interfere in human affairs after the revelation of their founders, and condemned prayer and preaching. In this pamphlet Muggleton attempts to defend himself against the Observations of Isaac Penington the younger (1616–79), in which Penington criticizes Muggleton's interpretation of the passage in Revelation upon which Muggleton and Reeve based their legitimacy as prophets. The title of this second edition (first edition, 1662) is within a simple border of type ornaments, and the text has two typographical headpieces and a xylographic tailpiece. Recent marbled paper over light boards; front cover with a paper label lettered in black. Spotting, staining, and occasional tears in the margins (repaired with tissue paper) with no loss of text. Pencilled marginalia.

Wolffheim I, 578 (the present copy). Cortot p. 57. "After Couperin and Rameau, [Jean-François Dandrieu] was the most celebrated harpsichord composer of the 18th century... The multiple printings and editions of his works, which continued long after his death, are proof of the celebrity this music enjoyed in the 18th century... His Principes de l'accompagnement was no less successful, and its approach was apparently considered useful enough to merit a thorough updating according to Rameau's advances by an unknown hand as late as 1777." David Fuller in Grove online This volume was successively part of three of the largest and most famous private music libraries of all time. Prior to 1910, it was in the collection of Jean-Baptiste Weckerlin (1821-1910), director of the library of the Paris Conservatoire. When Weckerlin's library was auctioned in March of 1910, only two months before his death, Werner Wolffheim (1877-1930) purchased a large share of it, including the present item. Wolffheim's collection was then auctioned in 1927, at which time André Meyer (1884-1974) purchased it and brought it back to Paris. The Meyer collection was dispersed after its owner's death.

While he accepted the basic concerto and sonata form from the Italian school, and their belief that the violin should be more than an instrument pour faire danser, he retained many French elements in his music, the most characteristic being the use of the gavotte, menuet, or other dance form as the slow middle movement and the fully written-out melodic embellishment of the solo pieces." Elizabeth Keitel and Marc Signorile in Grove online The Meyer collection, formed over a period of some 75 years, was one of the most important collections of printed music, musical autographs, and books on music of the 20th century.

        A New & Correct Map of the Whole World

      London: Herman Moll, 1719. Large engraved map measuring 715 x 1205 mm., comprising several conjoined sheets with contemporary handcolouring; strengthened at a few points along old folds, a most attractive map in a handsome timber frame. By a associate of Dampier and Rogers. Splendid map of the known world by Hermann Moll, the renowned mapmaker famous for his personal contact with English buccaneers including William Dampier. Accordingly, this map reflects contemporary knowledge of the Australian continent during the early eighteenth-century.Of German ancestry, Moll migrated to England around 1675 to escape regional warfare in the Hanseatic States. A skilled engraver by trade, he commenced working for established mapmakers including Moses Pitt and Greenville Collins. In 1688 Moll opened his first London store and relied less upon the patronage of other cartographers as his reputation grew. Over the coming decades his output was impressive, including numerous separately issued maps, geographical handbooks, atlases, and pocket globes. By the early eighteenth-century British maritime trade and expansion had assumed unprecedented global significance and required increasingly accurate cartography. Moll is justly famous for his personal contact with famous mariners of the era, including Woodes Rogers and William Dampier, both actively engaged in raiding Spanish gold on the Pacific coast of Mexico and South America (significantly, Dampier served as pilot for Rogers on his ambitious Pacific expedition of 1708-1711).Dampier's knowledge of the farthest regions of East Asia and New Holland was unparalleled, being the first Englishman to set foot on Australian soil in 1688. Moll engraved charts for the published accounts of both Rogers and Dampier; in return they supplied him with valuable first-hand geographical information, especially concerning Australasia, the South Pacific and East Indies. This gave Moll a competitive advantage over his competitors and contributed greatly to his reputation. Some of this rivalry is evident in the note engraved upon this map attacking Moses Pitt, the London mapmaker who had employed Moll many years earlier after his arrival in London. By 1719 there was clearly little affection between the two men, and Moll demolishes the New English Atlas recently published by Pitt with vitriolic enthusiasm: 'Notwithstanding the vast incouragement Pitts had by the subscriptions of Persons of Quality and others; he had so little regard to do 'em iustice...he purchased an impression of old and incorrect maps for his Pretended new atlas; adding only a few poorly perform'd Plates to it which I hope will be a sufficient caution to everybody, not to take anything of this kind for the future upon Trust and unexamined.' Indeed, Moll has since acquired a following amongst cartographic collectors for the verbose - and sometimes eccentric - commentaries he engraved upon his maps.In addition to its historical and cartographic significance, this world map is unusually attractive with a splendid large cartouche featuring African and Ottoman warriors, a native American archer and a European knight clustered around a cantankerous old lion.

      . . Large map by Hermann Moll shows the Netherlands. In the upper left part in-set map of the North Sea between the Netherlands and South England, on the right-hand side views of Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Middelburg, Utrecht, Groningen, Het Loo Palace and a plan of the ancient Roman Castle at the mouth of the Rhine river Arx Britannica (Huis Britten, Brittenberg). This magnificent map was printed by John Bowles of Cornhill, London and published in Moll's 1719 New and Complete Atlas, but it may also have been separately issued earlier. Moll came to London from probably from Bremen around 1678 and by 1688 he had his own shop in Vanley's Court in London's Blackfriars, between 1691 and 1710 at the corner of Spring Gardens and Charing Cross, and when he moved to Beech Street where he remained until his death. In1701 he published his first work A System of Geography. He was publishing atlases and separately issued maps, and from 1710 was also known as a maker of pocket globes. Printed from two plates and joined together in the middle, repaired tears and tiny holes in folds, tiny tears in white margins, colouring slightly pale, otherwise in a good condition. - ********** See www.pahor.de for larger photos! ********** - LANDKARTEN UND ANSICHTEN / MAPS AND VIEWS

      Esemplare in condizioni molto buone. Legatura coeva in piena pelle maculata con fregi in oro al dorso ITALIANO Legatura coeva in piena pelle maculata; dorso a 6 scomparti con nervi rilevati, titolo su tassello rosso  ed eleganti fregi floreali impressi in oro; tagli rossi; sguardie marmorizzate.  XXVIII pagine numerate, compresi occhiello e frontespizio; 317 pagine numerate; al verso dell'ultima pagina,  errata; seguono 4 tavole ripiegate di tabelle. Prima edizione francese in una traduzione di Giuseppe d'Aquin di questo lavoro sulla meteorologia redatto  dallo scienziato italiano e astronomo  Giuseppe Toaldo (1719 - 1797). Fisico italiano, fu nominato nel 1762 professore di astronomia, geografia e di meteorologia a all'Università di Padova, contribuendo a riformare la stessa Università. L'Elettore Palatino decise di fondare un'accademia per le osservazioni meteorologiche e in particolare per lo studio dei fulmini a cui l'autore diede un decisivo contributo. Le sue scoperte sulla influenza delle stelle e della luna, in particolare, le stagioni, gli permisero di creare una rete di osservatori nel tentativo di verificare l'ipotesi dell'influsso lunare e stellare sui cambiamenti climatici; questo sforzo gli  valse un posto distinto tra i fisici.  Notando diciotto fenomeni meteorologici riprodotti nello stesso ordine, definì tre di questi periodi e diede loro il nome di Saros. Gli astronomi chiamarono questo studio "Ciclo Toaldino".  Toaldo si occupò, inoltre, di ristampare nel 1744  le opere di Galileo, arricchendole di una notevole prefazione, commenti e frammenti inediti. Egli sostenne fortemente l'uso dei parafulmini secondo i dettami di Franklin e ne fece dotare la cattedrale di Siena e la torre di San Marco a Venezia.   In questo lavoro i dati meteorologici per le temperature e le precipitazioni nel corso del 18 ° secolo a Padova sono elencati in forma tabellare. Esemplare dall'interno in ottimo stato di conservazione; lievi spellature alla legatura comunque ben conservata.

        The Newlyweds and their Baby's Comic Pictures for Painting and Crayoning

      Akron/New York/Chicago: The Saalfield Publishing Co.. Very Good+. (c.1917, 1907). Stiff wrappers. NOISBN . [moderate edgewear to covers, internally Fine except for the expected and inevitable age-toning to the pages]. (cartoon strips and panels) A remarkably well-preserved example of this rare vintage coloring book (OCLC reports only four library holdings), containing mostly undated reprints of George McManus's newspaper comic strip, "The Newlyweds," generally considered the first American "family" strip. Created by the then 20-year-old McManus for Joseph Pulitzer's New York World in 1904, the strip ran for twelve years, at various times as both a daily and Sunday feature; when McManus left the World for the New York American (a Hearst paper), he began a new strip called "Their Only Child" ("a perfect clone," in the words of one historian), while "The Newlyweds" continued in the World, drawn by Albert George Carmichael. Dating the strips in the book would be a major research task, not helped by the mishmash of dates provided: the 1917 date is on the front cover; the title page reads: "Copyrighted 1907 by the Press Publishing Co."; and several of the individual color strips bear a 1916 copyright date, also credited to the "Press Publishing Co. (N.Y. World)." All appear to all be Sunday strips, although some are in B&W (for "coloring-in" purposes, I suppose) and others in color, and despite McManus's sole by-line on the title page, Carmichael's work is also well-represented. (On quite a few, either McManus's or Carmichael's signature is visible; generally speaking, the color versions appear to be by Carmichael and the B&W ones by McManus.)To my eyes, the 1917 publication date signals the publishers' attempt to wring a few more drops of revenue out of a feature that had ended the previous year; the seemingly anomalous 1907 copyright date would seem related to the "birth date" of baby Snookums (yes, that was his name), who was introduced into the strip in that year. [Either that or it's just a "holdover" from an earlier book incarnation, "The Newlyweds and Their Baby," published the same year by the New York World, but not to be confused with the present volume.] But relax: it's not so much a collection (let alone a chronicle) as it is a sampler of "The Newlyweds," and as such is utterly charming. McManus's most successful and best-remembered strip, "Bringing Up Father" (aka "Jiggs & Maggie"), debuted in 1913 and had an amazing 87-year run -- outliving its creator by 46 years! .

All early editions of this classic are now scarce.

The sequel, ?'Farther Adventures?", was published in August the same year. Hutchins gives a detailed account of the printing and publishing of the two parts of Robinson Crusoe, including a number of variants within the first editions. These are not issue points, as the variants are found in different combinations.

Copies of the book with both volumes in first edition are rare and now prohibitively expensive for most collectors. Grolier English 41; Hutchins, pp. 52-71, 97-112, 122-8; Moore 412 & 417; PMM 180; Rothschild 775. PMM 180: ?'much of science fiction is basically CrusoeÕs island changed to a planet.?"
