The volume contains the fullest collection of Obros - the macaronic poems of which alternate lines are in Hebrew and in Judeo-Provencal. A distinctively emblematic text of the particular Jewish culture and practice that evolved in the Jewish Communities of Avignon and the neighboring territory. See C. Roth, The Liturgies of Avignon and the Comtat Venaissin in: Journal of Jewish Bibliography (1939) pages 99-105. See also New York Public Library Catalogue, A Sign and a Witness (1988) number 170 (illustrated). The Haggadah adheres to the Sepahrdic rite. For example, instead of ¿Ve-hi she-¿amdah¿ hi (without the conjunctive vav) she¿amdah.¿ And before eating the ¿Hillel sandwich:¿ ¿Zekher le-mikdash ke-hillel ha-zaken de-amar ¿al matzoth u-merorim yochluhu.¿ AVIGNON (sometimes called in Hebrew Ir ha-gefanim "city of grapes"; gefen = vigne, i.e., vine), is the capital of the department of Vaucluse, southeastern France, formerly part of Provence. Avignon was the residence of the popes for some years after 1309. In 1348 Joanna, countess of Provence, sold the city to Pope Clement VI and it belonged to the French states of the Holy See until the French Revolution. In consequence the Jews were permitted to remain there and in the adjacent area of the Comtat-Venaissin even when they were excluded from the rest of France. According to legend the Jews took part in a revolt against Bishop Stephen of Avignon in 390. The first archaeological evidence of their presence there dates from the fourth century and is given by a stamp with the five-branched menorah and the inscription: Avin (ionnensis); the first written evidence dates from 1178 when Emperor Frederick I entrusted the protection of the Jews of Avignon to Bishop Pons. The Jewish quarter was at first situated at the present Vieille Juiverie street. About 1221 it was transferred to the neighborhood of the Church of St. Peter. Its location is marked by Rue Jacob and the former Place Jérusalem (today Place Victor-Basch). The old synagogue which stood on this site was destroyed by fire in 1845 and replaced on the same spot by the existing circular synagogue in the Roman manner. Near the synagogue, or escole, there was also a wedding hall, a butchery, and the oven for baking unleavened bread. The Jewish quarter, or carrière des Juifs, was surrounded by walls and closed by three gates. The Jews of Avignon were obliged to pay a tax to the collegiate chapter of St. Peter's (Arch. départ. G IX. 10). Although covering an area of approximately 100 yards by 100 yards, the quarter nevertheless housed over 1000 persons in 1358. One of the cemeteries was located on the site formerly called La Pignotte. The statutes of the city of Avignon of 1243 mention the Communitas Iudeorum several times. It was specifically laid down (art. 84) that animals killed according to Jewish ritual were not to be sold outside the carrière. Jewish commerce flourished during the period of papal residence in Avignon, supplying the papal court with victuals, bed and table linen, horses, perfumes, coral and pearls for rosary beads, parchment, and other commodities. The tailor of Gregory XI was a Jew, as was the papal bookbinder. The less wealthy Jews generally engaged in brokerage. In 1374, 87 of 94 textile dealers and 41 of 62 timber merchants were Jews. In the 14th century, Jewish moneylending on interest, practically nonexistent in the previous century, gradually developed, although limited in scale. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Journals of Major Robert Rogers

      1765. FRENCH AND INDIAN WAR. Journals of Major Robert Rogers: Containing An Account of the several Excursions he made under the Generals who commanded upon the Continent of North America, during the late war. By Major Robert Rogers. viii, 236, plus 4 pp. ads. 8vo., 198 x 125 mm, bound in English contemporary speckled calf. Preserved in a half orange morocco box. London: Printed for the Author, 1765. First Edition. The journals of a frontiersman from the years after the formation of his informally organized but very effective militia, Rogers' Rangers, from 1755 to 1761. The text offers detailed accounts of battles and missions undertaken by Rogers and his command in the region that is now upstate New York during the French and Indian war, including correspondence and tallies of dead and missing soldiers. Roger's Journals served as inspiration for a number of romantic literary tales about America, most notably Kenneth Roberts' Northwest Passage. The author's work later attracted the attention of King George III of England, and Rogers was subsequently awarded the role of governor of Michilimackinac (present-day Mackinaw City, Michigan). Two years after the publication of his journals Rogers was arrested and charged with treason, accused of stating that he would offer his territory to the French if the British did not approve his plan of governance, though he was subsequently acquitted. A bright, clean copy, with some wear to the outer edges of the binding. Inscribed on the inside front cover "Sam Parker Post 0..5..0, 1766" and "James Fenimore Cooper, Curt 65.00, 1928." This copy with the half-title for the proposed second volume and the two advertisement leaves at the rear, not always present. Rebacked in brown morocco with maroon morocco spine label.

        Observations sur l'architecture

      La Haye, 1765. In - 12 (17 x 10 cm) reliure plein veau tacheté du temps, dos lisse à caissons dorés et pièce de titre bordeaux, tranches tachetées, xvj p., 326 p. Manque la coiffe inférieure ; mors supérieur partiellement ouvert, coins usés. Marc - Antoine Laugier (1713 - 1769) est un théoricien de l'architecture français du XVIIIe siècle. Jésuite, ses prédications à Saint Sulpice plaisent au roi et lui valent sa notoriété. En 1752, Laugier écrit la première édition de l'Essai sur l'architecture, publié anonymement un an plus tard. Il quitte son ordre en 1755 à la suite d'une affaire de sermons ouvertement critiques prononcés devant le roi à Versailles en 1754. Entre 1759 et 1768, il publie une Histoire de la République de Venise. C'est en 1755 que la deuxième édition de l'ouvrage qui le rendra connu est publié: Essai sur l'architecture devient une référence en matière d'architecture religieuse ; ainsi Marc - Antoine Laugier est appelé par l'évêque d'Amiens pour aider à la décoration du ch?ur de la cathédrale. Il entre alors chez les Bénédictins à Paris, avec l'autorisation du Pape, où il devient homme de lettres. Ce sera le théoricien le plus influent de l'architecture néoclassique, et son ouvrage sur l'architecture sera traduit en anglais et en allemand. Français relié DeCollection

"The second folio edition, which began to appear serially soon after the first in the summer of 1755, shows that Johnson almost certainly revised his Preface for that edition, though probably not the wordlist itself.

The 1778 sixth abridged edition was advertised as "corrected by the author," and, indeed, it exhibits many authorial changes. The third edition of the unabridged folio, published in 1765, shows signs of slight authorial changes, partly in response to criticism.

        The Brave Capt Tyrrill (Tyrrell) in the Buckingham of 66 Guns & 472 Men defeating the Florissant, Aigrette & Atlante, three French Ships of War, the 3rd of Novr 1758 [TYRRELL]

      [London] 1765 - circa 1765. Very early edition. This hand-coloured engraving was trimmed to the edges 292mm x 442mm ( 11.5" x 17 3/8") and mounted to a dark card stock. The English only title was mounted on the reverse on the reverse of the dark mounted card. The trimmed mounted engraving has wear to the corners causing some minor rounding. There is surface dirt, soiling and spotting on the engraving more so on the sky area. Good- condition. Full title: The Brave Capt Tyrrill in the Buckingham of 66 Guns & 472 Men defeating the Florissant, Aigrette & Atlante, three French Ships of War, the 3rd of Novr 1758. N.B. The Florissant 74 Guns, 700 men, Aigrette 38 Guns 350 men Atalante 28 Guns 250 men: these ships were convoying Dutch Ships, with Provisions &c. to Martinico"In 1758, while in command of the 'Buckingham', 64 guns, he intercepted a French convoy protected by the 'Florissant', 74 guns, and two frigates. The 'Buckingham', is depicted in the right background of the portrait, flying a commodore's pendant and a white ensign. When the 'Buckingham' frightened off the two frigates a spirited action between the French and British ship ensued. The 'Buckingham' lost her steering at the moment of victory and this enabled the French ship to escape. Tyrrel was wounded several times and lost three fingers of his right hand, a mutilation clearly visible in the portrait. The action was particularly creditable because the Frenchman carried over 200 men more than the 'Buckingham'. In the following year Tyrrel assisted Commodore Moore to reduce Guadaloupe and brought home the dispatches. After the peace he went out again as Commander-in-Chief at Antigua and died at sea while returning home. " Royal Museums Greenwich.

      Waisenhaus, Halle und Leipzig 1765 - First Edition of the first volume of this 3-volume work, complete in itself. RISM BVI pp. 889-890."Wiedeburg’s most important legacy was a substantial body of pedagogical work. In 1765 he issued the first volume of his treatise on keyboard playing for beginners, Der sich selbst informirende Clavier-spieler, and two more volumes followed in 1767 and 1775 respectively. This huge work of more than 1600 pages, the largest 18th-century published treatise on keyboard playing, was designed as a compendium of the musical knowledge that one might need to learn to play the keyboard. Volume one deals with basic keyboard skills such as note- reading, rhythm and fingering, volume two teaches the principles of thoroughbass, and volume three deals with improvisation."

        The plays of William Shakespeare, in eight volumes, with the corrections and illustrations of various commentators; to which are added notes by Sam. Johnson.

      J. & R. Tonson, London 1765 - First variorum edition of Shakespeare "and the foundation of hundreds of subsequent issues" (Jaggard); first Johnson edition, without the names of Longman and Corbet in the imprint, and with Johnson's Preface unpaginated; 8 volumes, 8vo, engraved portrait frontispiece of the bard in vol. 1 by George Virtue (after Droeshout, according to Fleeman; after Chandos according to Jaggard and Courtney & Smith), full contemporary calf neatly rebacked, black morocco labels on spines; very good. "By the time the edition appeared in 1765 Johnson had been working on it, on and off, for twenty years . His most important preliminary work was the Dictionary. In the late 1740s Johnson read the complete works of Shakespeare in Warburton's 1747 edition, and marked out over 20,000 words, the meanings of which he found well illustrated in their Shakespearean contexts. Johnson says in the Preface to the Dictionary that he took 'the diction of common life' from Shakespeare; by arranging it and defining it, Johnson gave us, according to Bertrant Bronson, 'a diffused and unheralded [but] major work of Shakespearean scholarship'. The edition of Shakespeare is not merely a spin-off from the Dictionary, but it belongs to the same series of projects on the history of learning - some completed and some only planned - that runs throughout Johnson's life from the proposed edition of Poliziano and the translation of Paolo Sarpi, through the Harleian Catalogue and the Dictionary, to Shakespeare and the Lives of the Poets" (DeMaria, pp. 218-19). This edition includes the first printing of Shakespeare's will. Chapman & Hazen, pp. 146-7; Courtney & Smith, pp. 103-4; Fleeman 65.10SP/1; Jaggard, p. 501; Pforzheimer 911g.

        Lilium Convalium, Gefulite Mayenblume

      Nuremberg 1765 - The “Hortus Nitidissimis Omnem Per Annum Superbiens Floribus Sive Amoenissimorum Florum Imagines” was published between 1750 and 1786 as a periodical intended, when collected, to form an unmatched collection of botanical prints. The engravings are based on the drawings collected from various artists by the famous Nuremberg physician and amateur botanist Christopher Jacob Trew. Although the plates were produced using engraving techniques common to the period, each plate was completed individually through hand coloring. The variations in plates between different known volumes indicates that more than one artist was involved in this process. These variations render every volume of the work unique. Trew’s good friend Georg Dionysius Ehret, considered the most important and influential botanical artist of the mid-18th century, was a chief artist of this endeavor. Ehret was born to farmers in Heidelberg, Germany in 1708, and showed an early propensity for drawing. As a young man he was employed primarily as a gardener and he used his time spent gardening to examine and practice drawing botanicals and the natural world around him. Eventually his art attracted the attention of Dr. Trew who gave Ehret financial patronage and with whom he worked on the Hortus Nitidissimis as well as Plantae Selectae. These botanical engravings are considered the finest records of cultivated flowers of the time and are noted as being precisely engraved and exquisitely colored. This hand colored engraving, Lilium Convalium, 20” x 14”, is in very good condition with slight staining and foxing throughout. Lilium is a genus of herbaceous flowering plants commonly called Lilies. This detailed engraving shows the blooming flowers and the large richly colored green leaves.

The 'Buckingham', is depicted in the right background of the portrait, flying a commodore's pendant and a white ensign. When the 'Buckingham' frightened off the two frigates a spirited action between the French and British ship ensued. The 'Buckingham' lost her steering at the moment of victory and this enabled the French ship to escape. Tyrrel was wounded several times and lost three fingers of his right hand, a mutilation clearly visible in the portrait. The action was particularly creditable because the Frenchman carried over 200 men more than the 'Buckingham'. In the following year Tyrrel assisted Commodore Moore to reduce Guadaloupe and brought home the dispatches. After the peace he went out again as Commander-in-Chief at Antigua and died at sea while returning home. " Royal Museums Greenwich.

Lexikon Bd. II S. 102. Neyen, Biographie Luxemb. III S. 85-89. Heinrich Johann Nepomuk Edler von Crantz, auch Cranz, geboren am 25. 11. 1722 in Roodt (Simmern-Septfontaines), gestorben am 18.1. 1797 in Zeiring in der Steiermark war ein österreichischer Mediziner und Botaniker luxemburgischer Herkunft. Crantz studierte bei Gerard van Swieten in Wien und wurde dort 1750 promoviert. Er spezialisierte sich frühzeitig auf Gynäkologie und führte in Österreich die Schulung der Geburtshilfe durch Unterricht am Spital von St. Marx ein. Er verbesserte die Hebammenausbildung und entwickelte eine Verbesserung der Levret’schen Geburtszange. 1756 übernahm er dessen Lehrstuhl und lehrte Physiologie und Materia medica bis 1774. Neben seinen medizinischen Studien beschäftigte er sich mit botanischen Fragen sowie mit Problemen der Heilbäder, wobei er das erste Buch 1777 für Heilbäder in Österreich verfasste. "Einer der bedeutendsten Schüler van Swieten's in Wien, war am 24. Novbr. 1722 in Luxemburg geboren; 1750 wurde er auf Veranlassung seines Lehrers durch die Kaiseriin Maria Theresia auf Reisen geschickt, um sich in der Geburtshülfe gründlich auszubilden. Dies geschah in Paris unter Revret und Pujas mit glänzendem Erfolge, so daß er, 1754 nach Wien zurückgekehrt, den neu gegründeten Lehrstuhl der Geburtshülfe erhielt. In dieser Stellung beschäftigte er sich zunächst mit der Verbesserung des Hebammenwesens in Oesterreich, indem er ein vortreffliches Hebammenlehrbuch herausgab, dann folgten eine Reihe von Abhandlungen aus seinem Fache, unter denen die über die in der Geburtshülfe gebräuchlichen Instrumente in so fern hervorzuheben ist, als er darin seinen Landsleuten die Vortrefflichkeit der Levret’schen Zange demonstrirte."

        A haura-e display catalog with forty eight handpainted color & sumi designs for selection by patrons including thirty nine kachoga (flower and bird) landscapes. ***** The decorative designs reflect the refined and restrained iki aesthetic and were to be copied to the inner silk lining of the mid-length coat traditionally worn by men over the kimono, (the haura of a haori), using Yuzen starch resist technique. Some have interior and outer borders for the later application of gold and silver dust. Each design is on a sheet of handmade, 264 x 385 mm (10.39 x 15.16 inches) ivory mulberry paper and the sheets are side-bound without wrappers at crown and foot with the original antique copper, staple-like fasteners (hochikisu). *****

      - SEALS: no artist seals; one unidentified small cinnabar seal, rear of sheet 45. A machi-eshi (town painter working for privately owned businesses) didn't sign their work. CONDITION DETAIL: Colors: fresh and bright. No insect damage. Rear sides: customary pigment offset. Binding: excellent. Catalog formerly folded over and sheets retain a corresponding center fold indentation, shallow for center sheets, deeper at extremities and sheets are cockled with tip bends, some with minor corner creasing, last four with bottom tips bent back, Works 26 & 34 with a vertical crimp. Some sheets have trace bottom corner soiling, sheet 8 with a light top corner stain, Works 3, 4, and 18 with the stub from a label at the top tip, Works 32 and 34 have a few bleed-through pink spots: sheet 38 has toned top corners; sheet 40 with pink spotting, foot of inner margin, Work 29 with three characters in red at top corner. Work 1: greater corner wear, including vertical tears at bottom inner corner and a small hole at bottom outer corner, also some minor soiling including scattered spots along inner edge. Work 48: rear with a small bottom corner stain. PAPER: several thicknesses used. DESIGNS: Kachogas are in river, estuarine, coastal, and marsh settings with many bird species portrayed including: waterbirds, (red-crowned cranes, cormorants, Oriental storks, mandarin ducks, herons, and common kingfishers), shorebirds, (sandpipers, godwit and greenshank), the bush-warbler, Eurasian tree sparrow, varied tit, pheasant, rooster, northern goshawk, and sparrowhawk. Other designs include: spinning tops done with confection-like color, a striking group pantomime in silhouette, the light thrown by an early electric arc streetlight, koi, a wildflower garden with bamboo fencing, landscapes with chrysanthemum, black pine, plum tree, taro and lotus, a village in deep snow, and a pilgrimage to a Buddhist ceremony at a temple in the mountains. HIDDEN DECORATION: Even the use of silk for the inner lining of a jacket was a violation of the sumptuary laws but hidden decoration under the outer garment became commonplace in the Edo period among prosperous townspeople, as they sought to assert status while evading the restrictive sumptuary laws that forbade them to make public displays of luxury conflicting with the rights of the nobility. YUZEN: after Kyoto artist, Miyazaki Yuzen [d. 1765]. The design is first drawn with spiderworts juice on patterned cloth cut in kimono shape, the outline starched with rice paste to prevent dye bleed. Soybean juice is brushed on the kimono cloth to ensure good dye transfer. Customarily, one pattern is used for each color, with up to approximately 300 patterns being possible, permitting nearly any gradation of color. ADDITIONAL IMAGES: by request.

        JOURNALS OF MAJOR ROBERT ROGERS: CONTAINING AN ACCOUNT OF SEVERAL EXCURSIONS HE MADE UNDER THE GENERALS WHO COMMANDED UPON THE CONTINENT OF NORTH AMERICA, DURING THE LATE WAR.

      London: Printed for the Author, and sold by J. Millan, 1765. - viii,236pp. Half title. Antique-style three-quarter speckled calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, leather label. Scattered light foxing. Very good. First edition of this classic narrative of the French and Indian War. Rogers acted as a scout for the 1755 expedition against Crown Point, and in 1756 became captain of an independent company of Rangers. He made scores of raids against the French in New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, going as far west as the shores of Lake Huron. His exploits, detailed in this book, made him the most romantic and famous figure of the war in America. The book has served as the basis for much romantic fiction, most notably Kenneth Roberts' NORTHWEST PASSAGE. Rogers went on to briefly lead British rangers at the outset of the Revolution, raising recruits to fight against the American rebels. HOWES R419, "b." GAGNON II:1828. GREENLY MICHIGAN 16. BELL R366.

        Don Juan de Espina en Madrid. Comedia que escribió [.] y se ha de representar a sus Majestades en el Coliseo del Buen Retiro, a expensas de la muy Noble y muy Leal Coronada Villa de Madrid, con motivo de celebrar los gloriosos, felicísimos Desposorios del Serenísimo Señor D. Carlos Príncipe de Asturias, y de la Serenissima Señora Dña. Luisa Princesa de Parma [.].

      [Madrid, s.i. n.a., c. 1765]. - Ejemplar en tafilete rojo con las armas de Carlos IV. Edición original de esta comedia Española que se sitúa en Madrid. Se imprimieron pocos ejemplares todos ellos destinados a personajes de la corte española. El ejemplar que presentamos por su bella encuadernación es uno de los ofrecidos como regalo por el Rey Carlos III. El argumento es el siguiente: "Don Juan de Espina, Sugeto estudioso, singularmente aplicado à apurar las diversiones Mathematicas, y tropelias fisicas en la oculta virtud de la Naturaleza; reside en Madrid con fama de Magico natural, logrando aplauso comun, por los singulares prodigios, que obra en su Arte." [Sigue] "Por su fama, unos le buscan sabio, quando otros le temen Echicero; pero Espina, por desahogo de la tareas de su estudio, le ocupa muchas veces en dar algunos chascos, no sin la juiciosa idéa de procurar en el disfraz de las burlas, las virtuosas, apreciables veras de favorecer á sus confidentes, corregir los necios, y doctrinar á los ignorantes." [Finaliza] "Son frequentes las transmutaciones que executa de objetos, casos, y lugares, con maravillosa vivacidad en las ilusiones; pero rezeloso de que alguna le huviese malquistado con el poder, abandona la Patria, y se establece en Milán." José de Cañizares (Madrid 1676 - 1750), dramaturgo conocido por sus comedias de figurón, imitó algunas de las piezas del teatro italiano y francés, pretendiendo acomodarlas al teatro antiguo español. 1 hoja, 203 páginas. Encuadernación de lujo original en tafilete rojo con armas de Carlos IV en el centro de ambos planos y orla de hierros sueltos, nervios y hierros dorados entre ellos, cortes dorados. Guardas originales en papel pintado haciendo aguas. Leves restauraciones sin apenas distinguirse. Original royal binding. 24x18 cm. Palau 42900. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
