        Tratado dos Descombrimentos Antigos, e Modernos feitos ate a era de 1550...

      Lisbon: Officina Ferreiriana, 1731. Quarto, xvi, 100pp., with a woodblock portrait of the author; a fine copy in nineteenth century marbled boards. Important account of early exploration to the year 1550, including descriptions of discoveries in the Americas by Cortes, Cabral, Pizarro, Cabot and Grenville. The author, Antonio de Galvao, served as a Portuguese governor of the Moluccas for a three year term from 1536 and was remarkable for his humane and enlightened administration.Galvao died in 1557 and his valuable manuscripts passed to the Royal archives where they were edited for the first edition of 1563. Howgego notes that information relating to the Moluccas and Spice Islands was omitted to protect lucrative Portuguese trading interests in the region. The first edition has always been very rare - indeed Hakluyt complained that he was unable to obtain it and relied on a copy sent from Lisbon when preparing his English translation of 1601. Likewise this second edition of 1731 fared little better as Sabin laments 'the greater portion having been destroyed by an earthquake.'The book is a chronological history of discovery from ancient times to the revelation of the Americas, the last included being the English expedition under Richarte Trebuli (Sir Richard Grenville). It is especially rich in information on the Conquistadores given the author's close association with the Royal Court and access to confidential information concerning lucrative interests in Central and South America. Significantly, Galvao did not exclude the English in his account and describes Sebastian Cabot's discovery of North America. This edition of 1731 is beautifully printed, noteworthy for its striking title-page printed in red and black, elegant composition and a full length woodblock portrait of the author in armour. Front hinge starting.

FIRST GERMAN EDITION, published at the same time as the Lating edition. Scheuchzer's scientific explanation of biblical history discusses events such as the creation, flood and various miracles in terms of physics, medicine and natural history. It also contains a taxonomy of all the plants and animals mentioned in the Bible. Many Augsburg engravers have contributed to this richly illustrated bible with scientific commentary for which the Swiss natural scientist Scheuchzer had used a great number of sources. Johann Jacob Scheuchzer (1672-1733) is well known for his collection of fossils, for his systematic exploration of the Alps and for his numerous publications on geology and the natural sciences. His commentary brings these sciences to bear on the explication of passages in the Bible, illustrating and discussing numerous plant and animal fossils, and many biblical animals, some with anatomical drawings. Included in the first volume is a bibliography of publications on these topics. Erste deutsche Ausgabe, gleichzeitig mit der lateinischen erschienen. Die schöne, prachtvoll illustrierte Kupferstich-Bibel in einem vollständigen Exemplar. Diese Bibelausgabe zählt zu den schönsten Erzeugnissen der Augsburg Buchillustrationen des 18. Jahrhunderts; die Kupfer wurden von den besten Stechern der Zeit gefertigt, darunter Sperling, Corvinus, Tyroff u. a. Die Vorlagen zeichnete der Züricher Maler Johann Melchior Füßli, ein Freund Scheuchzers. Die Darstellungen jeweils in phantasievollen Umrahmungen mit Blatt-, Ranken- und Muschelwerk. "Unter Scheuchzers Anleitung zeichnete sein Freund, der Züricher Maler Füßli, die Vorlagen der Tafeln. Diese selbst bringen alles was sonst im botanischen, zoologischen, astronomischen, geographischen, im architektonischen, emblematischen und religiösen Tafelwerk vorliegt. Auch die aus dem Ornamentstich bekannten Motive, Blatt-, Ranken- und Muschelwerk, Phantasieumrahmungen aller Art sind in vorbildlicher Form hier zu finden. Die von Johann Daniel Preissler geschaffenen 'abwechselnden Nebenzierraten' gehören zu den phantasievollsten Leistungen ihrer Gattung. So bildet die Scheuchzerische Kupferbibel wirklich einen Höhepunkt der Augsburger graphischen Kunst des 18. Jahrhunderts, gleichzeitig ein wichtiges Denkmal des Tafelwerkes und die Überleitung zum illustrierten Buch, vor allem zur illustrierten Bibel." (Lanck./Oehler). Very Good.

        Astro-Theology: or, a Demonstration of the Being and Attributes of God, From a Survey of the Heavens.

      W. Innys,, 1731. Sixth Edition. London, W. Innys, 1731. Octavo. [16] lvi [8] 246 pages,[10] [3 foldout engravings]. Original Hardcover / bound in contemporary panelled calf. The book has been sympathetically rebacked to style. Besides a spot of hard green adhesive to the front board in very good condition. The armorial bookplate of Dr Blackett appears on the first pastedown. The text is complete and clean with the three foldout engravings of the cosmos to the rear, a little archival paper restoration to one of the engravings. William Derham FRS (26 November 1657 ? 5 April 1735) was an English clergyman, natural theologian and natural philosopher. He produced the earliest, reasonably accurate estimate of the speed of sound.nnWilliam Derham was the son of Thomas Derham. He was born at Stoulton, in Worcestershire, England. He was educated at Blockley, Gloucestershire and at Trinity College, Oxford from 1675 to 1679. He was ordained on 29 May 1681. In 1682, he became vicar of Wargrave, Berkshire and from 1689 to 1735 he was Rector at Upminster, Essex. While at Upminster, in 1716 he became a Canon of Windsor and the vestry minutes show that thereafter he divided his time between those two places. The parish registers of Upminster record his burial at St. Laurence's in 1735. However, the precise site of his grave is unknown and, in accordance with his wishes, there is no memorial to him in the church.nnIn 1696, he published his Artificial Clockmaker, which went through several editions. The best known of his subsequent works are Physico-Theology, published in 1713; Astro-Theology, 1714; and Christo-Theology, 1730. All three of these books are teleological arguments for the being and attributes of God, and were used by William Paley nearly a century later. However, these books also include quantities of original scientific observations. For example, Physico-Theology contains his recognition of natural variation within species and that he knew that Didelphis virginialis (the Virginia opossum) was the only marsupial in North America. Similarly, Astro-Theology includes several newly identified nebulae (this was the name used at the time for all extended astronomical objects: some of his nebulae are what we would now call star clusters). His 16-feet long telescope (also used when measuring the velocity of sound) was at the top of the tower of St Laurence's Church, where the necessary doors are still in place. On 3 February 1703, Derham was elected Fellow of the Royal Society. He was Boyle lecturer in 1711?1712. His last known work, entitled A Defence of the Church's Right in Leasehold Estates, appeared as early as 1731.nBut besides the works published in his own name, Derham contributed a variety of papers to the Transactions of the Royal Society. He revised the Miscellanea Curiosa. He edited the correspondence and wrote a biography of John Ray, whose 'physico-theology' (natural theology) tradition he continued, making him an early parson-naturalist.nHe edited Eleazar Albin's Natural History, and published some of the manuscripts of the scientist Robert Hooke. His meteorological observations at Upminster (in the Transactions of the Royal Society) are amongst the earliest series in England. (Wikipedia)n

        Traité de l'organe de l'ouïe, contenant la Structure , les Usages & les Maladies de toutes les parties de l'Oreille

      [22]-196 pages, 7 pages de Leyde, Chez Joh. Arn. Langerak, 1731, in-12, [22]-196 pages, 7 pages de catalogue d'éditeur, 16 planches gravées sur cuivre par R. Blokh, veau marbré de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges, Seconde édition de ce traité qui fut l'un des premiers ouvrages complets sur l'otologie et qui parut pour la première fois en 1683. Après avoir exposé des notions d'anatomie nouvelles, Duverney développe une théorie de l'audition très proche de celle de von Helmholtz, puis aborde finalement quelques pathologies de l'oreille. C'est la première monographie scientifique sur la structure et les maladies de l'oreille.

      6 Vol. au complet La Haye, chez P. Gosse & J. Neaulme, 1731, in-12, 6 Vol. au complet, plein parchemin de remploi, dos à nerfs, pèces de titre et de tomaison en cuir (reliure d'époque), Réédition de l'ensemble des oeuvres Marot, parues pour la première en1538. En 1731 parait deux formats de la même édition, l'un en format in-4 et l'autre et celle-ci en format in-12. La première, "quoique assez bonne et beaucoup plus complète que les autres, est peu recherchée" contrairement aux 6 volumes en petit format ici présent qui "est plus commode et plus jolie". (BRUNET, III, 1452; 1458) A l'instar de la quasi-totalité des oeuvres posthumes de Marot (c'est-à-dire à partir de l'édition de Sabon-Constantin de 1544-1545), les éditeurs classent les poésies de Marot par genres poétiques et les séparent de ses traductions, rompant avec un classement semi-chronologique induit par la succession de "L'Adolescence Clémentine" et de sa "Suite". Ainsi, la première partie des "Oeuvres" comprent, dans l'ordre, les opuscules, les Elegies, les Epîtres, les Ballades, les Chants divers, les Rondeaux, les Chansons, les Epigrammes, le Epigrammes à "l'imitation de Martial", les Etrennes, les Epitaphes, les Cimetières et les Complaintes ; puis, dans une seconde partie, nouvellement paginée, les traductions de Virgile, Béroalde, Pétrarque, Ovide, Léandre et Héro, et enfin la célèbre version marotique des 50 "Psaumes de David". Ex-Libris contrecollés sur les contreplats. Malgré l'effacement volontaire du nom du propriétaire, on reconnait ici l'Ex-Libris de Louis César de Crémeaux, Marquis D'Entragues, qui était lieutenant général au gouvernement de Mâconnais. Bel ensemble dans son jus, quelques manques de parchemin par endroits, intérieur frais.

[4], IV, [26], 372pp (Vol. 1); [2]pp (Publisher's advertisement), [16], 340, [27, index], [1]pp (Vol. 2). 19th-century black- and blind-stamped full calf, with gold numerotation on spines. Raised bands. First volume with an engraved frontispiece portrait of John Locke by Vertue, after a painting by G. Knetter. Decorative headpieces and initials.Tenth and enlarged edition of John Locke's Essay "Concerning Human Understanding," a philosophical landmark originally published in 1689 (although dated 1690).One of the principal sources of empiricism in modern philosophy, this essay presents a detailed, systematic philosophy of mind and thought, and wrestles with fundamental questions about how we think and perceive, and it even touches on how we express ourselves through language, logic, and religious practices. In the introduction, entitled 'The Epistle to the Reader,' Locke describes how he became involved in his current mode of philosophical thinking. He relates an anecdote about a conversation with friends that made him realize that men often suffer in their pursuit of knowledge because they fail to determine the limits of their understanding. The Essay is divided into four books (two per volume):First volume:- Book I is devoted to an attack on nativism or the doctrine of innate ideas. Locke allowed that some ideas are in the mind from an early age, but argued that such ideas are furnished by the senses starting in the womb: for instance, differences between colors or tastes. If we have a universal understanding of a concept like sweetness, it is not because this is an innate idea, but because we are all exposed to sweet tastes at an early age. One of Locke's fundamental arguments against innate ideas is the very fact that there is no truth to which all people attest. He took the time to argue against a number of propositions that rationalists offer as universally accepted truth, for instance the principle of identity, pointing out that at the very least children and idiots are often unaware of these propositions. - Book II: Whereas Book I is intended to reject the doctrine of innate ideas proposed by Descartes and the rationalists, Book II explains that every idea is derived from experience either by sensation - direct sensory information - or reflection - "the perception of the operations of our own mind within us, as it is employed about the ideas it has got". Furthermore, Book II is also a systematic argument for the existence of an intelligent being: "Thus, from the consideration of ourselves, and what we infallibly find in our own constitutions, our reason leads us to the knowledge of this certain and evident truth, that there is an eternal, most powerful, and most knowing being; which whether any one will please to call God, it matters not!" Second volume:- Book III focuses on words. Locke connects words to the ideas they signify, claiming that man is unique in being able to frame sounds into distinct words and to signify ideas by those words, and then that these words are built into language. Chapter ten in this book focuses on "Abuse of Words." Here, Locke calls out metaphysicians for making up new words that have no clear meaning. He also criticizes the use of words which are not linked to clear ideas, and to those who change the criteria or meaning underlying a term. Thus he uses a discussion of language to demonstrate sloppy thinking. Locke followed the Port-Royal Logique (1662) in numbering among the abuses of language those that he calls "affected obscurity" in chapter 10. Locke complains that such obscurity is caused by, for example, philosophers who, to confuse their readers, invoke old terms and give them unexpected meanings or who construct new terms without clearly defining their intent. Writers may also invent such obfuscation to make themselves appear more learned or their ideas more complicated and nuanced or erudite than they actually are. - Book IV and last, focuses on knowledge in general - that it can be thought of as the sum of ideas and perceptions. Locke discusses the limit of human knowledge, and whether knowledge can be said to be accurate or truthful. Thus there is a distinction between what an individual might claim to "know", as part of a system of knowledge, and whether or not that claimed knowledge is actual. For example, Locke writes at the beginning of Chap. IV (Of the Reality of Knowledge): "I doubt not my Reader by this Time may be apt to think that I have been all this while only building a Castle in the Air; and be ready to say to me, To what purpose all of this stir? Knowledge, say you, is only the Perception of the Agreement or Disagreement of our own Ideas: but who knows what those Ideas may be? ... But of what use is all this fine Knowledge of Man's own Imaginations, to a Man that enquires after the reality of things? It matters now that Mens Fancies are, 'tis the Knowledge of Things that is only to be priz'd; 'tis this alone gives a Value to our Reasonings, and Preference to one Man's Knowledge over another's, that is of Things as they really are, and of Dreams and Fancies." In the last chapter of the book, Locke introduces the major classification of sciences into physics, semiotics, and ethics.Spines somewhat darkened and creased. Closed tears along joints, but covers still firmly attached. Back hinge of first volume, and front hinge of second volume reinforced with tape. Stamp of the University of California Riverside on inside of each front cover, and at top and bottom edges of each volume. Bindings in overall good- to good, interior in very good condition.

A similar title was first published by "H. Curll," with different registration, and the edition statement is a nonsense for this nonce collection, whose contents seem to vary from copy to copy. The texts included here are The Art of Kissing; Popeana ("Advice before Marriage"); Jacob: The Rape of the Smock; Gay: The Hoop-Petticoat; The Patch; A Recipt for Soup [no title-page called for in collation[; Bury-Fair; William Bowman: Poems on Several Occasions; Addison: Oratio, An Oration in Defense of the New Philosophy; and An Apology for the Writings of Walter Moyle, being the last item, written by Curll, who was also the printer and publisher of this volume. It is not immediately clear what the last essay has to do with "the Whole Art of Kissing." ESTC and other online resources, as well as Foxon, record a number of different configurations for the works included under the catch-all title (possibly one of Curll's many jokes), but so far as I can tell, not this one.

        Designs of Inigo Jones and Others.

      - London, Isaac Ware [1731]. Quarto contemporary calf (label missing, front hinge cracked but firm); engraved title, 5 engraved pages listing plates on three leaves and 48 plates numbered to 53 (six double page of which five carry two numbers). A rather good copy, fresh and crisp, with the charming armorial bookplate of White of Lincolns-Inn which is handcoloured and touched with gold. I suspect this is William Archibald Armstrong White but there were a few Whites of Lincolns Inn. First edition. Ware's first substantial production as part of the Burlington circle, in a way a popular version of the grander book produced by William Kent in 1727. Here the designs are mostly those of Jones and Kent (one is Burlington's) but a few had not been published before. Eileen Harris pointed out in her note on the William Kent book that its greatest influence is apparent in the use of details - doors, windows, ceilings, fireplaces &c - and doubtless the same claim can be made for this book; there are many fine details.

        Histoire de la guerre des Hussites et du concile de Basle

      - Chez Corneille Guillaume Le Febvre, à Utrecht 1731, in-4 (20x26cm), (4) xix (1) 484pp. et (4) 387pp., 2 volumes reliés. - Prima edizione, illustrata con 10 ritratti - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale illustrée de 10 portraits gravés par Fillieul et Scottin, et publiée par sa veuve Emilie Lenfant. La Dissertation de M. de Beausobre sur les Adamites de Boheme suit l'ouvrage de Lenfant (258-370p.). 2 vignettes de titre. Biographie de l'auteur dans les pages liminaires. Ornements, bandeaux et culs-de-lampe. Reliures en pleine basane brune porphyre d'époque. Dos à nerfs ornés. Pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin fauve. manques en tête des 2 tomes. Mors supérieur fendu en queue du tome I. 4 coins émoussés. Frottements. Bons exemplaires. La guerre des Hussites constitue un événement historique de première importance dans l'histoire de l'église, de la Tchécoslovaquie et de la Bohème. En choisissant d'en établir l'histoire, l'écrivain protestant Lenfant y repère un avant goût de la Réforme protestante opérée par Luther et voit en Jan Huss un précurseur. Jan Huss est un prêtre Tchèque du quatorzième sièle qui prône la réforme de l'église, il demande un retour à la pauvreté évangélique et lutte contre les indulgences. Il prêche dans sa langue natale et traduit les Evangiles en Tchèque, fixant ainsi la langue écrite tchèque, et revendique la liberté pour son peuple, contre l'empereur et roi de Bohème. Le concile de Constance le condamne pour hérésie et au bûcher en 1415. Sa mort entraîne 18 années de guerre en Bohème. Les Hussites résisteront à 5 croisades catholiques demandées par le pape et domnineront la Bohème par leurs victoires militaires. L'église pliera devant certaines revendications des Hussites lors du Concile de Basle, accordant la lecture en tchèque de l'épitre et des Evangiles, et la communion en tchèque. En 1575, les deux tiers des Tchèques se rallieront à la réforme luthérienne.

        The Coming of the Messiah in Glory and Majesty. By Juan Josafat Ben Ezra, a converted Jew.

      Small Octavo. XIV, 575 pages. Hardcover / Original, decorative half leather binding with gilt lettering and ornaments on spine. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Unusual in this excellent condition. Very scarce publication. Even more scarce in a Dublin printing ! Manuel Diaz Lacunza S.J. (born Santiago, Chile, 1731 died Imola, Italy around June 18, 1801) was a Jesuit priest who used the pen-name Juan Josafat Ben-Ezra for his main work on the interpretation of the prophecies of the Bible. The son of Charles and Josefa Diaz, wealthy merchants engaged in colonial trade between Lima and Chile, Manuel entered the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) in 1747. After the usual training in a seminary he took his full vows and was ordained priest in 1766 but began his service as a teacher of grammar in the Colegio Máximo de San Miguel in the Chilean capital, where he gained moderate fame as a pulpit orator. In 1767 King Charles III of Spain expelled the Jesuits from Spain and its possessions, (including South America) and Lacunza was sent into exile, first in Cadiz and then in the Italian town of Imola, near Bologna in central Italy, where he found refuge with other Chilean Jesuits. Charles threatened to withdraw his subsidy of 100 piastres per annum if any Jesuit wrote in self-defence or in criticism of this move. Lacunza's life as a priest-in-exile was made more difficult when the next pope, Pope Clement XIV, issued the brief, Dominus ac Redemptor, which banned Jesuits from celebrating Mass or other sacraments. In addition, his family in Chile fell on hard times and the remittances on which Lacunza relied became increasingly scarce. During this time, Lacunza began an intensive programme of study, first of the Church Fathers and then of Biblical prophecies. He read all the commentaries available to him and after 1779 restricted his study solely to the Scriptures. After five years communal living with the other exiled Jesuits, Lacunza retired to a house on the outskirts of Imola where he lived alone, apart from a mysterious person whom he calls in his letters, "my good mulatto". During this time some of his Jesuit colleagues described him as "a man whose retirement from the world, his parsimonious way of life, the neglect of his own person, even from the comforts necessary to human life, and his indefatigable application to study, earned him the respect and admiration of all". In 1773 Lacunza received another blow when, by the bull "Dominus ac Redemptor", the pope dissolved the Jesuit order in return for territorial concessions by France and Spain who were threatening the Papal States, the so-called "Patrimony of St Peter". Thus, by decree, Lacunza was reduced to a secular status. Combined with the theological and Biblical study he had undertaken, this personal trauma led Lacunza to adopt a millenarial view of the near future. His developing ideas were first published in a 22-page tract known as "The Anonymous Millennium" which was widely circulated in South America (there is evidence that Lacunza did not authorise this publication and was annoyed by it). The tract gave rise to heated public debate, particularly in Buenos Aires. Lacunza's opponents denounced him to the Inquisition, which banned the booklet. In 1790 Lacunza completed the three volumes of his major work, "The Coming of the Messiah in Glory and Majesty" (La venida del Mesías en gloria y majestad). Recognising that royal patronage was the surest guarantee that his work would be published and that he would be protected against his enemies, he made repeated attempts to obtain approval by the Spanish court, but in this he was unsuccessful. However his book circulated in manuscript form in Spain and in the whole of South America. The exact date of his death is uncertain because his body was found in a pit beside a road some distance from Imola. At the time it was assumed that the septuagenarian priest had died of natural causes while on one of his solitary walks. Despite the prohibition of the Inquisition, "La venida del Mesías en gloria y majestad" was secretly printed in Cadiz in 1810 or 1811 under the Jewish pseudonym of Rabbi Juan Josaphat ben-Ezra. A second edition was printed in Spain in 1812 and a third, in Castilian and funded by the Argentine General Manuel Belgrano, was published in London in 1816. In the same year the book was denounced before the Spanish courts and on January 15, 1819 the Spanish Inquisition ordered that the book be removed from circulation. Further editions were printed in Mexico in 1821/1822, in Paris in 1825 and again in London in 1826. In September 1824 Pope Leo XII placed it on the Index of Prohibited Books. Those who opposed the book expressed particular concern about the appeal Lacunza's ideas exerted among the more conservative and active clergy. A pamphlet denouncing Lacunza's book, published in Madrid in 1824, was subtitled, "Observations to Guard the Public against the Seduction the Work can Cause". Following the book's publication in London, the Rev Edward Irving, founder of the Catholic Apostolic Church, came across Lacunza's work and was so impressed by it that he studied Castilian for the sole purpose of translating it into English. In 1827 his two-volume translation was published under the title "The Coming of the Messiah". Lacunza's interpretation of Bible prophecies differed from that of William Miller and other prominent Protestants of the day who were focused on prophecy in that he espoused Futurism and his ideas had greater influence on British premillennialism, and his influence may be traced in premillennialism's drift into Futurist Dispensationalism. Lacunza believed that he had made some "new discoveries, real, solid, undeniable, and of the greatest importance" for the discipline of theology. The first of these "new discoveries" was that the end of the world would not be an instantaneous destruction of God's creation. He denied "that the world - that is, the material bodies or celestial globes that God has created (among which is the one on which we live) - has to have an end or return to chaos or nothingness ... This idea is not found often in Scripture before the opposite idea is stated and I agree with the best interpreters." Secondly, Lacunza concluded that the Biblical expressions "end of the age" and "end of the world" refer to two different times. He understood the "end of the age" or "day of the Lord" as merely the end of a phase of human history that would be closed by the coming of Christ and the beginning of His kingdom on Earth. At this time the living would be judged and the Jews converted, after which a new society would be established for a thousand-year reign of justice and peace. Lacunza believed - based on his reading of Bible prophecy - that during the period before the "day of the Lord" there would be a general apostasy of the Catholic Church which would make it part of the Antichrist. In this sense "the church" was not individuals, but "a moral body" composed of all the apostates and atheists. Naturally this view was especially controversial because it placed the official church on the wrong side in the final struggle between Good and Evil. It was this belief that finally brought about the Vatican's condemnation of his work. On the other hand, the "end of the world" was marked by the resurrection of the dead and the Last Judgement, which Lacunza understood involved a transmutation of the physical world to the plane of the eternal. This event would take place after the thousand years of Christ's earthly kingdom. Lacunza's various works are valuable as a record of the experience of exile and intellectual persecution. His personal letters have come to be highly valued in his birthplace of Chile owing to its recent history of exile and persecution. For example, he wrote of his fellow exiles: "We are like a tree that is perfectly dry and unable to revive, or like a dead body that is buried in oblivion. ... Meanwhile we are slowly dying off. We left Chile 352 in number now just half are left and most of them are sick and can barely move - like a quack doctor's horse." The longing of the exile for his homeland can be heard in his declaration, "No one can know Chile until he has lost it!" (Wikipedia)

        Mein Schreibetisch. An Herrn G. R. P. in D. : Band 1 (von 2).

      (1. Aufl.), Band 1 von 2. 8 (15.5x10), 1 Bl., 384 S., 2 Bl., mit gestochenem Frontispiz (C. Schule del.) und gestochenem TitelPorträt, etwas späterer marmor Pbd mit goldgepräg RSchild, Ecken minimalst bestossen, Nummer auf Vorsatz, Adels-Exlibris-Stempel verso Titelblatt (v.Böhl auf Cramon), schönes gepflegtes Exemplar, In vorliegendem Spätwerk profilierte sich Marie Sophie von La Roche, geborene Gutermann (1731-1807) weniger als Schriftstellerin, denn als selbstbewusste Frau. Im Jahre 1799, als Napoleon die Macht in Frankreich an sich riss, eilte die nun fast 70jährige ein letztes Mal ihren Zeitgenossen voraus. Schon der Titel war ein Affront gegen die Konventionen, in einer Zeit, in der einer Frau eher 'Mein Nähr- opder Küchentisch' zugekommen wäre. Frappierender noch das Porträt mit Federkiel am Schreibtisch vor einem raumerfüllenden Bücherwand als Indiz ihrer großen Belesenheit. Mit ihrer Pose - schreibend und denkend, dokumentierte die Schriftstellerin ihren Anspruch als geistige Autorität. Dieses Altersbild als erhabene Schriftstellerin ist mit großer Gewissheit das erste seiner Art und war nur zum revolutionären Jahrhundertwechsel möglich. in der folgenden Restaurationszeit wäre dies undenkbar gewesen.- 'Mein Schreibetisch' ist signifikant, denn dort benennt Sophie in collagenartigen Texten, ähnlich einer Enzyklopädie, ihr breites Lese- und Bildungsrepertoire, anderen Frauen als Anregung empfohlen, darunter Werke von Marc Aurel, Plato, Hume und Kant, also keine verniedlichende 'Frauenzimmerlektüre'.

One of Hywel's supposed pro-English acts was the introduction of elements of English law into those of Wales. This was not impossible, since according to the prologues to the Welsh law books of the thirteenth and later centuries, he was responsible for the first codification and promulgation of Welsh law, known consequently as cyfraith Hywel (¿the law of Hywel¿).

        Handschriftliches Arbeitszeugnis des Hofapothekers Caspar Neumann für Maria Elisabeth Danielin (Daniel) vom 27. Juni 1731.

      (Papier leicht nachgedunkelt, gut erhalten) Handschrift auf Papier in einem neueren Rahmen hinter Glas (25 x 30 cm). In alter Schönschrift mit einem Siegel, darauf die Inschrift "Königliche Hoffapothec" sowie die Initialen FWR (Friedrich Wilhelm Rex) und eine Krone. "Daß Vorzeigerin dieses, Maria Elisabeth Danielin, gebürtig aus Freyenwalde an der Oder 6.

Berlin d. 27. Junii 1731. Caspar Neumann Med Dr. Königl. Professor und Hoffapotheker". Seltenes handschriftliches Zeugnis des bedeutenden Pharmazeuten und Chemikers Caspar Neumann (Züllichau 1683 - 1737 Berlin). Neumann war von 1719 bis zu seinem Tode Leiter der Hofapotheke. "Innerhalb sehr kurzer Zeit gelang es ihm, durch gut durchdachte Umbauten und umfassende Modernisierung der Einrichtung, die Berliner Hof-Apotheke zu einem mustergültigen pharmazeutischen Betrieb, vor allem aber zu einer Forschungs- und Ausbildungsstätte zu entwickeln, die in Deutschland kein Gegenstück hatte. (...) Neumann entwickelte faktisch die Konzeption des wissenschaftlich gebildeten Pharmazeuten." (wikipedia). Über Kalliope konnten wir nur eine weitere Handschrift Neumanns in Dresden nachweisen.
