        Summa S. Thomae Hodiernis Academiarum Moribus Accomodata, Sive Cursus TheologiaeAd usum Scholarum ThomisticarumIn Nineteen Volumes.

      50 - Leodii - Apud Everardum Kints 1747 - A smart uniformly bound set of Billuart first edition theological works created to be used within Thomistic schools. Written in Latin. Featuring decorative head and tail pieces, coat of arms and illuminated capitals. Originally created byphilosopher and theologian in the tradition of scholasticism, Thomas Aquinas, his work is described as one of the classics of the history of philosophy and one of the most influential works of Western literature. It is intended as a manual for beginners in theology and a compendium of all of the main theological teachings of the Church. It presents the reasoning for almost all points of Christian theology in the West. Thomas was a theologian and a Scholastic philosopher. However, he never considered himself a philosopher, and criticised philosophers, whom he saw as pagans, for always falling short of the true and proper wisdom to be found in Christian revelation. With this in mind, Thomas did have respect for Aristotle, so much so that in the Summa, he often cites Aristotle simply as the Philosopher. Much of his work bears upon philosophical topics, and in this sense may be characterised as philosophical. Thomas's philosophical thought has exerted enormous influence on subsequent Christian theology, especially that of the Roman Catholic Church, extending to Western philosophy in general. Thomas stands as a vehicle and modifier of Aristotelianism and Neoplatonism. The Summa's topics follow a cycle: the existence of God; Creation, Man; Man's purpose; Christ; the Sacraments; and back to God. The Summa Theologica is meant to summarise the history of the cosmos and provide an outline for the meaning of life itself. Throughout the work, Aquinas cites not only Aristotle but Sacred Scripture, Augustine of Hippo, and other Jewish, Greek, Roman, Christian, and Muslim scholars. The Summa Theologi is a more structured and expanded version of Aquinas's earlier Summa contra Gentiles, each written for different purposes: the Summa Theologi to explain the Christian faith to theology students, and the Summa contra Gentiles to explain it and defend it in hostile situations. Complete in nineteen volumes. Condition: In the originalmottled calf bindings with marbled text block edge, and gilt design and lettering to the spines. Externally, all are sound with only light wear to the extremities and head of the spines. Volume one has slightwear encroachingonto the front board. Internally, all are generally firmly bound with volume's seventeen and ninebeing slightlystrained in places. Pages are extremely bright and clean given the age of the books, with only the very odd spot, and very slight age toning to page 449 of volume five. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED.

        1747 Emanuel Bowen Map of North American Harbors

      London 1747 - Map. "Particular Draughts and Plans of Some of the Principal Towns and Harbours belonging to the English, French, and Spaniards; in America and West Indies. Collected from the best Authorities. By Eman. Bowen." London, 1747. 17 x 14 in. There are 13 maps on one sheet, the maps are of the harbors of; "Boston," "Placentia" (Eastern Coast of Canada), "Louis Bourg," "Annapolis Royal" (Canada), "New York and Perthamboy," "S'Augustine," "Providence," "Havana," "St. Jago de Cuba," "Charles Town," "Fort Royal in Martinico" (West Indies), "Cartegena," "Porto Bello." Historical BackgroundEmanuel Bowen (1693/4-1767) was a map maker and engraver in London. Bowen's career (1720-1767) was a prominent component of London's position as a leading producer of maps and atlases during the 18th century. He served as royal map maker both for George II of England and Louis XV of France. Bowen is known for many famed maps and atlases, including; The Royal English Atlas, the Large English Atlas which he produced in partnership with mapmaker Thomas Kitchen, and his earliest publication, the Britannia Depicta, produced in partnership with mapmaker John Owen (nicknamed the Owen and Bowen Maps). Bowen's maps were different from the rest of the maps created during his time, and were very popular. What set his maps apart from the others were the facts that they were created with some of the most sophisticated cartographical detail of the time, included historical and cultural information, were very artistically designed, and were some of the largest maps printed during the time. Bowen also created several geographical textbooks, including; The Complete System of Geography, and The Universal History of the World.The map featured here, the "Particular Draughts and Plans of Some of the Principal Towns and Harbours belonging to the English, French, and Spaniards; in America and West Indies. Collected from the best Authorities" shows detailed maps of the Harbors and Towns. The details include depth measurements of the waterways, labels and illustrations of towns and forts, illustrations of surrounding landscape, and interesting facts about the harbors. Such facts include a list of the number of Canons set up in different forts to defend the Louisbourg harbor entrance, and the historical fact, "Porto Bello,.taken by Admiral Vernon on Nov.r 22.d 1739 with 6 ships only." Another aspect of the map to note is that the lands of the harbors are documented before the landfills that occurred in many of them that altered the present day maps of the areas.References BOWEN Emanuelhttp://www.maphouse.co.uk/cartographer/bowen-emanuelEmanuel Bowen (1714-1767)http://www.mostlymaps.com/mapmakers/bowen-emanuelEmanuel Bowenhttp://www.jpmaps.co.uk/includes/biography.popup.cfm/id.9Emanuel Bowenhttp://www.artfact.com/subcollection/emanuel-bowen-u7hf7y914c

        19 autograph letters signed.

      Vienna, St. Pölten, and other places, 1738-1747. - Altogether 37 pages on 38 leaves. Large 4to, with additional material (see below). To the Abbott of the Premonstratensians in Hradisko near Olomouc (Moravia). These unpublished letters, hitherto unknown to scholarship, represent a substantial part of Gran's correspondence with the Hradisch Abbey. They offer a detailed and intimate perspective on the creative process of this famed artist, who, together with Paul Troger and Franz Anton Maulbertsch, is regarded as one of the best-known painters of the later Austrian Baroque period. The letters are valuable sources for the dating of Gran's works at the Hradisko Monastery itself (frescoes and oil paintings); they also provide ample information about the circumstances of their composition. Lost works such as a cycle of paintings from 1747 are also mentioned. Finally, the letters offer a unique perspective on Gran's everyday life, including the illnesses from which he suffered and collaborations with fellow artists. The recipient, although never explicitly named, is Abbott Norbert II. Also enclosed is an additional letter to the Abbott from the painter Christian Hilfgott Brandt (1693-1756), dated and signed Vienna, 25 March 1754. - Margins with occasional tears and light creases, still an extremely well-preserved collection of correspondence. Manuscript material by Gran is extremely rare. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Les Principales Aventures de L'Incomparable Chevalier Errant Don Quichotte de la Manche.

      Paris Jacques-François Chereau (c. 1747) - Large folio. (1), (25)ff., plates. A reissue or reimpression published after the artist, Charles-Antoine Coypel, was named "Premier Peintre du Roi" in 1747; this series of twenty-five engravings was first presented as a deluxe portfolio in Paris, in 1724. The engravings were done after a series of paintings illustrating scenes from Don Quixote that Coypel had designed for a popular set of tapestries, which were woven continuously between 1714 and 1794. Coypel supervised the portfolio's production, and, according to the title page, the engravings were done by "les plus habiles artistes en ce genre." These artists included L. Surugue, F. Joullain, C. N. Cochin, and eight other engravers, who sign the plates. Coypel's depictions of scenes from Don Quixote differed significantly from previous illustrations of Cervantes's classic in that they were less focused on humor, and were more courtly and sophisticated, taking into account the eighteenth-century French taste for the Fête Galante and romanticized depictions of aristocrats in baroque rural settings. The scenery of these illustrations is a much lusher Versailles, rather than arid La Mancha. In addition, Coypel's illustrations were never intended to accompany a text, but instead were meant to be admired as decorative pieces. Bound in nineteenth-century half dark blue morocco over marbled boards. The spine bears a crimson lettering piece with gilt lettering. Wear to corners and head and foot of spine, front hinge starting, covers rubbed in spots, some faint marginal foxing, else a very good copy. (Ashbee 22, p. 12). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        DIE BITTRE SUSE ODER DAS GESANG DER EINSAMEN TURTEL TAUBE, DER CHRISTLICHEN KIRCHEN HIER AUF ERDEN...[manuscript title]

      Ephrata. 1747.. [264]pp. plus 7pp. printed register. Small quarto. Contemporary three- quarter calf and marbled boards. Spine heavily worn, split in center. Later 19th- century ownership inscription on front fly leaf. Slight wear and foxing to some leaves, and some ink burn, resulting in splits to some leaves. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. A unique and spectacular manuscript hymnbook created by the religious community at Ephrata, Pennsylvania, founded by Johann Conrad Beissel. This manuscript is from the period when the community was at its zenith, and is an outstanding example of the Frakturschriften for which the Ephrata Cloister is known. It contains over 250 pages of manuscript music, some of it likely original compositions. The printed register at the end contains 375 hymn listings, and an additional fifteen pieces of music precede the main body of the work. Johann Conrad Beissel (1692-1768) was born in Germany and orphaned at an early age. A charismatic and engaging personality, he tried on several religious movements, and eventually emigrated to Pennsylvania in 1720 after being banished from his homeland for radical religious beliefs. Beissel spent part of the 1720s with the Dunkards in Germantown and Lancaster County before his controversial beliefs about celibacy and Sabbath-keeping caused a rift with his fellow congregants. He then established himself as a hermit on the banks of the Cocalico River, where he was eventually joined by other like-minded individuals who wished to follow his teachings, and so founded the Ephrata Cloister in 1732. "What began as a hermitage for a small group of devoted individuals grew into a thriving community of nearly 80 celibate members supported by an estimated 200 family members from the region at its zenith in the mid-18th century. During that period much of the activity surrounded the charismatic founder and leader, Conrad Beissel. His theology, a hybrid of pietism and mysticism, encouraged celibacy, Sabbath worship, Anabaptism, and the ascetic life, yet provided room for families, limited industry, and creative expression" - Ephrata website. "Both within and without Ephrata, Beissel aroused controversy. His opposition to the institution of marriage early divided his congregation, as did his refusal to tolerate the community's money-making industries. His adoption of the Jewish sabbath and work on Sunday violated provincial laws and aroused the opposition of civil officials. That women left their husbands and homes to be with Beissel produced their husbands' ever-lasting hostility and even provoked one to attack Beissel physically. Beissel's willingness to permit women to spend nights in his cabin and his initial housing of men and women in the same building led to rumors of sexual promiscuity that prompted a neighbor to try to set fire to the cloister" - ANB. The community became known for its self-composed a cappella music, Germanic calligraphy known as Frakturschriften, and the complete publishing center which included a paper mill, printing office, and book bindery. Printing at Ephrata began in 1745, the third geographical location of printing in Pennsylvania. In fact, the largest book printed in America before 1800, numbering more than 1,500 pages, was published at the Ephrata printing shop in 1748. The first printed hymnbook of the cloister was called the "Turtle-Taube (Turtle Dove)," and contained more than 400 of the community's hymns, most of which Beissel had written. It was issued in 1747, the same year as this manuscript. In addition to the press, the Cloister also had a scriptorium which produced beautiful manuscript hymnals and other works. Beissel composed many original hymns for the community, which then produced manuscript volumes containing both the words and, separately, the music. He is said to have composed more than 4,000 lines of poetry, almost all of it religious, some of it set to music also of his composition. "For the community's worship, he developed distinctive types of choral harmony and antiphonal singing, and he frequently required the members to sing in this style on late night walks around Ephrata" - ANB. Manuscript production at Ephrata was used as a form not only of book production, but also as a meditation and spiritual act. Beissel established a monastic style of living for the Cloister in 1735, three years after its founding, and the earliest output of the scriptorium dates to this time. Most of the fine manuscript work was likely done by the Sisters (the Cloister was segregated by gender), while the Brothers maintained the printing press. The scriptorium flourished during the 1740s and 1750s, declining near the end of that decade. The present manuscript was produced while the scriptorium was at the pinnacle of its output and handiwork. This volume, with its elaborate fraktur titlepage, was likely a presentation copy rather than a standard, everyday hymnbook. The Ephrata community produced virtually the only original hymn texts and tunes during the colonial era. It was meant to be used with the printed words from the 1747 edition of DAS GESANG DER EINSAMEN UND VERLASSENEN TURTEL-TAUBE.... A bearded face has been drawn in each of the two upper corners of the fraktur, a highly interesting and unusual feature of the work. It is inscribed on the front fly leaf with a later ownership inscription which reads, "Abm. Burger's Book / January 29, 1830," which is followed by a gift inscription: "A Present of a Music Book from / Abm. Burger / to / Elder Lucius Crandal / Plainfield / Essex County / N.J. / December 17th 1854." These lines were probably written by Abraham Berger (1795-1856), a member of the Snow Hill Congregation in Quincy, Pennsylvania, an offshoot of the Ephrata community located about ninety miles to the southwest. When Ephrata was in its decline in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, Snow Hill was in its prime, and as a result, many of the books and manuscripts were transferred from Ephrata to Snow Hill. This would explain how and why Berger may have acquired the volume. The gift recipient, Lucius Crandall (1810-76), was an elder and minister in the Seventh Day Baptist Church, first at Plainfield, New Jersey, and later at congregations in Rhode Island and New York. The Ephrata Cloister congregation, following its incorporation in 1814, became known as the Seventh Day Baptists of Ephrata, also referred to as the German Seventh Day Baptists. While Ephrata had no official ties or affiliation to the Seventh Day Baptist Church with which Crandall was affiliated, the two denominations formed a close relationship. This was true to the extent that in the later 19th century, Crandall's denomination included the annual reports of the Ephrata and Snow Hill congregations in their own annual reports. Ministers and members would travel from Crandall's Seventh Day Baptist Church to the Cloisters at Ephrata for feast days and baptisms, etc., providing a link between the two men. The Winterthur Library and Museum in Delaware has a significant collection of these hymnals, as noted by Kari Main in her excellent 1997 article on the subject (she compares eight hymnals). Columbia University has half a dozen manuscript hymnals, as well, and further collections can be found at the Ephrata Cloister, The Free Library of Philadelphia, the Library of Congress, and the Hershey Museum. Many of these derive from the great Samuel Pennypacker collection, dispersed at auction in 1908. Such manuscript works are incredibly rare on the market today, and the present copy is an especially fine example of these remarkable manuscripts. Kari M. Main, "From the Archives: Illuminated Hymnals of the Ephrata Cloister" in WINTERTHUR PORTFOLIO, Vol. 32, No. 1, pp.65-78. ANB (online).

        La Chaumiere. Gravé d'Après le Tableau Original de Ppe. Wouvermens de même grandeur Qui est dans la Gallerie de Son Ex. Mgneur. Le Comte de Brühl Premier Ministre de S.M. le Roy de Pologne Electeur de Saxe

      Moyreau, Paris 1747 - A fine composition, showing rural life in the Flemish low countries: a thatched cottage is seen to the right, in the foreground two men prepare a couple of pack-horses. One man talks to a women seated, who spines wool using a hand spindle. A traveller passes on a laden ass. In the doorway of the house a women plays with a young child. The title notes that the original painting was the same size as the engraving. 'Dutch painter and draughtsman. [Philips Wouwerman]. was the eldest son of the painter Paulus [Pauwels] Joostens Wouwerman of Alkmaar (d. 28 Sept 1642), whose two other sons, Pieter Wouwerman and Johannes Wouwerman, also became painters. Philips probably received his first painting lessons from his father, none of whose work has been identified. According to Cornelis de Bie, Wouwerman was next apprenticed to Frans Hals, although no trace of Hals's influence is discernible in Wouwerman's work. Wouwerman is also reputed to have spent several weeks in 1638 or 1639 working in Hamburg in the studio of the German history painter Evert Decker (d. 1647). While in Hamburg, he married Annetje Pietersz. van Broeckhof. On 4 September 1640 Wouwerman joined the Guild of St Luke in Haarlem, in which in 1646 he held the office of vinder (agent or finder). Given the many southern elements in his landscapes, it has repeatedly been suggested that Wouwerman must have travelled to France or Italy, but there is no documentary evidence that he left his native Haarlem for more than short periods. During his lifetime he must have attained a certain degree of prosperity, as demonstrated by the relatively large sums inherited by each of his seven children after his wife's death in 1670. Engraving, coloured by hand, by J. Moyreau.
