        Singende Muse an der Pleisse in 2. mahl 50 Oden, Der neuesten und besten musicalischen Stücke mit den darzu[!] gehörigen Melodien zu beliebter Clavier-Übung und Gemüths-Ergötzung Nebst einem Anhange aus J.C. Günthers Gedichten

      Leipzig: auf Kosten der lustigen Gesellschaft, 1741. "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 Music Online.. Small quarto. Full mid-tan leather with blind rules to edges of boards, raised bands on spine in blind-ruled compartments. 1f. (recto fine decorative title incorporating putti holding a banner with musical notation and text, verso blank), 1f.

        De la nécessité de l'instruction. Entretiens entre Irénée et Philalette

      1741 - [4]-510 pages (Paris ?), 1741, in-8, [4]-510 pages, basane brune de l'époque, dos à nerfs, muet, Manuscrit inédit, rédigé à l'encre brune ; en pied de la table qui ouvre le texte se trouve le nom de Le Rouge, peut-être l'auteur de l'ouvrage. La date du 2 juin [1741], qui figure dans l'angle supérieur du premier feuillet, signe le début de la rédaction du manuscrit ; le second entretien est quant à lui daté, à la fin, du 10 juillet 1741. Passages en latin soulignés dans le texte ; quelques paragraphes biffés par l'auteur. Le manuscrit comprend trois entretiens, sous la forme de dialogues entre Irenée et Philalette : le premier sur la nécessité de s'instruire, le second sur les motifs que les fidèles ont de s'instruire et le troisième sur les points de discipline dont il faut instruire les fidèles. L'auteur du manuscrit s'est inspiré des Entretiens et Nouveaux entretiens sur les différentes méthodes d'expliquer l'Écriture (Amsterdam, 1707) du théologien protestant Pierre de Joncourt (mort en 1725), qui avait imaginé des dialogues mettant en scène les mêmes personnages - Irenée et Philalèthe - afin de défendre ses opinions théologiques contre celles des coccéiens et des véotiens : l'auteur du présent manuscrit utilise le même procédé pour démontrer la nécessité de prendre part aux affaires de l'Église, ce qui le conduit, in fine, à prendre la défense des appelants, sur la question de la bulle Unigenitus (1713), contre les constitutionnaires, qui l'ont reconnue. Reliure usagée. Un feuillet détaché. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Nouvelle édition, considérablement augmentée, de ce traité qui fut publié pour la première fois à Paris, en 1738, avec un titre sensiblement différent.

        L'Apothéose du Beau-Sexe

      à Londres, chez Van der Hoek, (Hollande, Amsterdam ?), 1741, in 12, de XLVI-138pp. & 17ff. d'index 1f. blanc, front gravé signé P. Yver, pl. veau époque, dos orné, coiffe sup. très lég. usée, bon exemplaire. Edition originale. L'ouvrage a été imprimé en Hollande, sans doute à Amsterdam. Cette édition est tantôt répertoriée sous la date de 1712, tantôt sous celle de 1741. La difficulté provient de la mauvaise impression de la date en chiffres romains. Les catalogues de Bibliothèques ne tranchent pas cette question (CCFR, KVK). Toutefois après recherche c'est la date de 1741 qui doit être retenue car le graveur hollandais Pieter Yver a vécu de 1712 à 1787. C'est un texte libre et féministe, une "bagatelle traitée dogmatiquement" où l'auteur "soutient les droits [du Beau-Sexe], et par occasion indique la manière dont ils doivent en user avec cette belle partie du Genre Humain". Et en particulier "du saisissement et de l'enthousiasme que procurent les parties naturelles du corps de la femme, nommées avec peu de raison parties honteuses" (sic) ¶ Selon Marc Angenot, Les champions des femmes : examen du discours sur la supériorité des femmes (Pr. Univ. Québec, 1977, pp. 75-77) : " La thèse singulière défendue dans ce libelle à permis de n'y voir qu'une plaisante supercherie. Mais il est des supercheries qui tiennent plus de l'expérience spéculative que de la mystification pure et simple.... ce titre, il faut le prendre ici dans toute sa rigueur. Apothéose signifie bien étymologiquement "divinisation". Et "sexe" doit s'entendre non, selon le vocabulaire noble... mais bien précisément dans le sens de "parties génitales de la femme". L'auteur se propose tout bonnement de vouer un culte religieux aux organes sexuels féminins et justifie sur le ton le plus grave la légitimité de ce choix et l'opportunité d'un retour au paganisme naturel. Il s'appuie - c'est évident - sur la thèse de la supériorité des femmes et proclame la nécessité de réhabiliter le libidinal, l'érotisme étant le seul mouvement qui nous rapproche du divin. (...) En somme l'auteur se veut polythéiste et entend vouer à la sexualité féminine une dévotion particulière (...) conforme à la nature et à la raison. Son argument ne manque ni de solidité, ni d'érudition... " - Gay amour, femmes I. 248 "Volume curieux et assez libre... culte que les Allemands rendent à Bacchus... passions violentes... Courtisanes regardées autrefois d'un fort bon oeil, les français choisissent Vénus pour leur divinité... plaisir que le femme procure au soldat, au matelot etc..." - Barbier suppl p.12 attribué à Deslandes (né à Pondichéry en 1690) - Pas dans Quérard Fr. litt.

        Historia de la provincia de la compañía de Jesus del Nuevo Reyno de Granada en la America, descripción, y relación exacta de sus gloriosas missiones en el reyno, llanos, meta, y Rio Orinoco, almas, y terreno

      First -and only- edition of this extremely rare and important work on the Jesuit Missions in New Granada (current Colombia), including extensive information on the Orinoco. The work is rich in information regarding the labor and progresses made by the Societas Iesu, the local costumes, way of life, and the history of the region. It also includes information taken from earlier Jesuit sources, mainly those of father Gumilla, who focuses more on the Orinoco. "... a very important chronicle of a part of America where there exists very little documentation. It is a work that, with that of Piedrahita, forms a complete history of New Granada" (Leclerc). Cassani (1673 -1750) was a Spanish Jesuit professor of mathematics and astronomy, a prolific writer and learned scholar and ultimately one of the founders of the Academia de la Lengua Española (1713); amongst his works we count the Tratado de la naturaleza y origen de los cometas (Madrid, 1737) and a part of the famed biography of the Jesuits Varones Ilustres de la Compañia de Jesus. As a Jesuit, he had access to the letters and relations from missionaries to America, which allowed him to compose this chronicle on the Jesuit exploits in Colombia. This work is ostensibly the most important and comprehensive made on the subject to the time of its publication. Illustrated with a folding map of Colombia and Venezuela, by Minguet after the map by Gumilla -published in his "El Orinoco Ilustrado", 1741-, which shows the locations of the full network of Jesuit missions in the region; it includes the mouth of the Orinoco River, the North of Brazil and "La Cayana" in the Dutch settlements.

Father Gumilla was far ahead of his time in his landmark work on the Orinoco.

Leopoldo Richter immigrated from German to Columbia, where he become a ceramist, entomologist and an important artist of Colombia in the 20th Century. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
