I have studied the compilation of songs very much and I have published a study on it in Vierteljahresschrift für Musikwissenschaft [No. 1], 1885, pp. 35-126 (and 350-355)..." & & Spitta continues with a detailed description of the two different issues of the first edition, stating that the issue with the song "Ihr Schönen, höret an" on the recto and "Befördert ihr gelinden Saiten" on the verso of the final leaf and without the index is the rarer of the two issues." & & 2 pp. of a bifolium. Octavo. Slightly worn; creased at folds; small burn hole affecting two words. & & Spitta refers to the variant last two songs of the collection, numbered "99" and 100." The first issue had no index. Later editions, from 1741, include all four songs, bringing the total of the volume to 102 songs; however, the number on the title page was left standing. Spitta's view, stated in his letter to Kade, that the first issue was much rarer than the second, has been proven wrong in recent years. & & Together with: & & Issue No. 106 of the Wissenschaftliche Beilage to the Leipziger Zeitung, September 4, 1890, with an article by Kade on the Singende Muse based largely on an earlier article by Spitta and referring to Spitta by name.

Not in Wolffheim.& & Copies of the first issue are held at the Bachhaus in Eisenach, at the British Library (Hirsch III, 1077), and at the Universität der Künste in Berlin. & & It has been suggested by Dr. Jörg Hansen at the Bachhaus that the recipient of Spitta's letter referred to above wasa Dr. Frese of Döbeln, near Leipzig, the only other known private owner of a copy of the Singende Muse (see Scholze in the Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie, http://www.deutsche-biographie.de/sfz78924.html). It is thus likely that the present copy, in fact, belonged to Frese. & & "Sperontes’s most significant work is the Singende Muse an der Pleisse, a collection of poems set as strophic songs to adaptations of the ‘newest and best music compositions’... The initial publication of 1736, containing 100 poems (and 68 compositions), proved to be so popular that it was followed by three further sets with 50 numbers each..." & & "...The music of the Singende Muse consists overwhelmingly of popular pre-existing instrumental and vocal compositions to which Sperontes invented his verses... For the most part Sperontes seems to have drawn on French, but also on English, German and Italian, musical sources. Because the compositions were evidently modified or distorted considerably in their transmission – probably the work of local composers engaged by Sperontes – it has not been possible to identify more than a handful of pieces... 18th-century documents ascribe two pieces to J.S. Bach: ‘Ich bin nun, wie ich bin’ and ‘Dir zu Liebe, wertes Herze’ (bwv Anh. 40 and 41)..."& & "... With their emphasis on modern instrumental dance forms, the lieder of the Singende Muse manifest the direct rhythms, clear phrasing and sectionalism, simple textures and harmonies of the progressive galant style. And, by avoiding the ornate vocal writing of the Italian opera, Sperontes established a precedent for differentiating lied and aria styles..." & & "... The appearance in print of the first part of the Singende Muse marked the end of the so-called ‘Liederlose Zeit’ (songless era), the first three decades of the 18th century, during which the popularity of the imported Italian opera brought the cultivation and publication of German song to a virtual standstill... In addition, the remarkable success of Sperontes’s anthology initiated almost immediately a powerful resurgence of song production which was to continue throughout the century, forming the matrix for the lieder masterpieces of the 19th-century Romantics." Robert L. Marshall and Dianne M. McMullen in Grove online. & & "As to the commercial distribution of the Singende Muse, Friedrich Matthias Friese of Leipzig took care of it. Soon after publication, however, one leaf, on which the songs "Ihr Schönen höret an" and "Befördert ihr gelinden Saiten" were printed, was removed from the copies unsold as yet. Instead, a new bifolium was inserted on whose first leaf the songs "Schwartzer Augen Gluth und Kohlen" and "Jagen verbleibet das schönste Vergnügen" were accommodated, while its second leaf was used for an index specially compiled for this new edition."

        THE ANALOGY OF RELIGION, NATURAL AND REVEALED, TO THE CONSTITUTION AND COURSE OF NATURE

      London: Printed for James, John and Paul Knapton, 1736.. [12],x,11-320pp. Large quarto. Modern half calf and marbled boards, raised bands, gilt label. Early ink name ("Thomas Ludlam") on title and transcription from Plutarch on the half-title (to all appearances in the same hand), faint seminary blindstamp in blank lower forecorner of title, with 4 digit ms. number on verso of title, occasional very minor dust marking to top margins, otherwise a large (25.5 x 20.5 cm), fresh, crisp copy. First edition of Butler&#39;s magnum opus, one of the signal works in the controversy against deism, and "one of the bulwarks of Christian apologetics ... Hume, who sent Butler his ESSAYS in 1741, ranked him with Locke and Berkeley as one of the originators in the experimental method in moral science ..."(PMM) and his influence was noted by figures as diverse as Mill, Newman, Gladstone and Macaulay. It would indeed be pleasant if the ownership signature conformed to Thomas Ludlam (1727-1811), the theologian, disciple of Locke, and staunch advocate of the application of reason in the analysis of religious experiences.

        Mechanica sive Motus Scientia Analytice exposita

      Thirty-two folding engraved plates. 8 p.l., 480 pp.; 4 p.l., 500 pp. Two vols. Large 4to, orig. boards (minor wear & foxing), entirely uncut. St. Petersburg: ex Typographia Academiae Scientiarum, 1736. First edition, and a fine set in original state, of Euler&#39;s first major publication and the first work to apply analysis to the study of mechanics. "In an introduction of the Mechanica (1736) Euler outlined a large program of studies embracing every branch of the science. The distinguishing feature of Euler&#39;s investigations in mechanics as compared to those of his predecessors is the systematic and successful application of analysis. Previously the methods of mechanics had been mostly synthetic and geometrical; they demanded too individual an approach to separate problems. Euler was the first to appreciate the importance of introducing uniform analytic methods into mechanics, thus enabling its problems to be solved in a clear and direct way... "This first large work on mechanics was devoted to the kinematics and dynamics of a point-mass. The first volume deals with the free motion of a point-mass in a vacuum and in a resisting medium; the section on the motion of a point-mass under a force directed to a fixed center is a brilliant analytical reformulation of the corresponding section of Newton&#39;s Principia; it was sort of an introduction to Euler&#39;s further works on celestial mechanics. In the second volume, Euler studied the constrained motion of a point-mass...In the chapter on the motion of a point on a given surface, Euler solved a number of problems of the differential geometry of surfaces and of the theory of geodesics."-D.S.B., IV, pp. 479-80. &#10087; Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, pp. 103-04. .

Several figures in the large folding plate are devoted to the very sophisticated water-flow meter Brunings had developed and the catamaran designed to carry it. Others show his simpler lever meter, Henri Pitot's ingeniously simple tube meter, and other equipment invented by Francesco Domenico Michelotti, Leonardo Ximenes and other eighteenth-century pioneers of hydraulics. The translation is by Claus Kröncke.Brunings (1736-1805), a hydraulic engineer from Haarlem who played an important role in the prevention of silting and floods in the Dutch parts of the Rhine valley, first published the present work in Dutch in 1789. He is best remembered for his river-flow meters. In 1806, immediately after his death, the Dutch government acknowledged his important services by offering a prize for the best account of his life and work, but the winning entry by his friend and student F.W. Conrad was not published until 1827. Occasional minor foxing, binding somewhat worn. Good copy with generous margins.

Um dieser Tendenz entgegenzuwirken, schrieb er, ohne es ausdrücklich zu sagen, seine &#130;Analogy&#145;, und manche meinen, ihre Bedeutung sei zugleich mit dem Deismus dahingeschwunden [.]. Seine Aufnahme in unsere vorliegende Sammlung zeugt hingegen für die andere Auffassung, daß es in Wirklichkeit eines der Bollwerke christlicher Apologetik ist, und wenn ihm auch nicht immer gelang, was es beabsichtigte, so ist an seiner lebendigen Fortwirkung nicht zu zweifeln [.].

        The Analogy of Religion, Natural and Revealed, to the Constitution and Course of Nature. To which are added two brief dissertations: I. Of personal identity. II. Of the nature of virtue.

      London, printed for James, John and Paul Knapton, 1736.. 4°. 6 Bll., 320 S., Mod. HLdr. a. 5 Bünden m. Rückenvergoldung.. Erstausgabe. - "Butlers große Sorge war das Vordringen des Deismus, der von Herbert von Cherbury seinen Ausgang genommen hatte; er erkannte, daß man es hier mit einem nicht unerwarteten Ergebnis zu tun hatte, das die Beseitigung der herkömmlichen Weltallvorstellung durch Kopernikus und Descartes' Vorarbeit für Newtons Idee der Naturgesetzlichkeit gezeitigt hatten. Um dieser Tendenz entgegenzuwirken, schrieb er, ohne es ausdrücklich zu sagen, seine Analogy', und manche meinen, ihre Bedeutung sei zugleich mit dem Deismus dahingeschwunden [...]. Seine Aufnahme in unsere vorliegende Sammlung zeugt hingegen für die andere Auffassung, daß es in Wirklichkeit eines der Bollwerke christlicher Apologetik ist, und wenn ihm auch nicht immer gelang, was es beabsichtigte, so ist an seiner lebendigen Fortwirkung nicht zu zweifeln [...]. Hume [...] stellte ihn auf eine Stufe mit Locke und Berkeley als einen der Urheber der experimentellen Methode in der Moralphilosophie [...]. Gladstone zählte als seine vier Doktoren' Butler, Aristoteles, Dante und den heiligen Augustinus. Macaulay nannte ihn einen Mann von echtem Genie'" (Carter/Muir, Bücher die die Welt verändern, S. 357f.). - Die ersten Bll. mit kl. Randläsuren. Vortitelbl. m. kl. Randauriß (ohne Textverlust).

        An Enquiry into the Life and Writings of Homer

      London - J. Oswald, 1736. London - J. Oswald, 1736 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The second edition of Blackwell&#39;s pioneering study of Homer in bright condition with an original binding and good provenance. Bound in leather with gilt lettering. Includes in-text engraved illustrations and a fold-out map. With adverts for the publisher J. Oswald to the rear. With Joseph Cooks armorial bookplate on the front pastedowns, with view of Newton Hall. Reverend Joseph Cook (1759-1844) was vicar of Chatton and Shilbottle, and was sufficiently acquainted with the duke of Northumberland. (DNB)Blackwell&#39;s main fame is as a writer whose booksAn Enquiry into the Life and Writings of Homer (1735), Letters Concerning Mythology (1748), and Memoirs of the Court of Augustus (3 vols. , 175363)were pioneering studies in their fields and mark him as a major figure of the Scottish Enlightenment. The Enquiry was published anonymously in 1735 and went to five subsequent editions. Blackwell considered why Homer had been the supreme epic poet and concluded that his achievement was explicable almost entirely in terms of natural forces. Homer was the outcome of a specific historical context, social organization, geography, and climate, which combined to shape the culture he represented and which provided an ethos uniquely favourable to epic poetry. (DNB)Thomas Blackwell, 1701- 1757, was a Scottish classical scholar and historian. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. The front hinge is cracked. There is some wear to the extremities, including some rubbing and wear to the top and tail of the spine. Internally the pages are bright with the occasional spot and mark. Overall the condition is good, with a very good interior..
