        Un Curieux manuscrit enluminé sur l'amour courtois

      Manuscrit original 1881 - SELLIER (Jules). Arrêts de cours d'amours recueillis par Benoît Le Court, jurisconsulte, né à Saint Symphorien le Châtel dans le Lyonnais, chanoine de Lyon, Vermenton, 1881. Rl. demi-chagrin, 324 ff., 22 x 14 cm. Remarquable traduction sur le vieux français sur l’édition de 1566 par Jules Sellier, de Vermenton, qui se revendique examinateur au Crédit foncier de France. Le commentaire de Benoît Le Court, sur les Arrêts d'Amours, fut imprimé pour la première fois à Lyon, chez Griphius en 1533. Les cours d'amour représentent au moyen-âge une petite révolution culturelle menée par les troubadours provençaux qui, par la diffusion de compositions gaies et galantes, réservaient une place grandissante aux femmes. Par la quête de l’amour courtois comme idéal poétique, les troubadours eurent une forte influence sur les mentalités des cours européenne et l’érotisme de la chevalerie. Tant et si bien que l’expression publique de ses sentiments, sous forme de jeu et de mises en scènes conduites par les ménestrels, passionnait les participants. On en vient ainsi à examiner toutes les figures possibles de la relation amoureuse, et de ses empêchements, pour en dénouer les cas les plus complexes au moyen des solutions les plus habiles. Ainsi naquirent les Cours d’amour, véritable code jurisprudentiel et ludique de l’amour au moyen-âge. C’est un dénommé Martial d’Auvergne qui eut le premier l’idée de réunir les arrêts rendus par les cours d'amours, pour en former une sorte de Corpus jurit amoris. Puis, en 1533, un très célèbre jurisconsulte de Lyon, nommé Benoit le Court, commenta très sérieusement et mo¬tiva légalement ces arrêts. Finalement, en 1881, Jules Sellier qui possédait une copie de l’ouvrage de Benoit le Court en modernisa le texte dans une pièce unique, le présent manuscrit. Les feuillets ne sont, pour la majorité, écrit que sur le recto, quelques pages sont assez richement enluminées, toutes sont réglées à l’encre carmine et porte le monogramme de Jules Sellier. Reliure légèrement frottée, dernière garde désolidarisée, autres défauts mineurs, bon état général. [--ENGLISH--] Remarkable translation on the 1566 edition, made by Jules Sellier. The comment of Benoît Le Court, on the Rulings of Loves, was printed for the first time in Lyon, by Griphius in 1533. The courts of love represent a sort of cultural revolution in the Middle Ages, led by troubadours who, by the spread of cheerful and courteous compositions, reserved a growing placeto the women. By the quest of the courtly love as poetic ideal, the troubadours had a strong influence on the mentalities of the European courts and the eroticism of the chivalry. So much and so that the public expression of its feelings, in the form of games and plays led by minstrels, fascinated the participants. All the possible figures of the love relation, and its hindrances, offered the challenge to solve the most complex cases using the most skillful solutions. So were born the Courts of love, real case law and playful code of love in the Middle Ages. Martial d' Auvergne had the idea to gather the rules sentenced by the courts of loves, to form a sort of of jurit amoris Corpus. Then, in 1533, a famous French legal adviser of Lyon, named Benoit le Court, commented very seriously and motivated legally these rulings. Finally, in 1881, Jules Sellier who possessed a copy of Benoit le Court’s work modernized the text in a unique copy, the present manuscript. Pages are, for the great majority, written only on the first side, some pages are rather richly illuminated, all pages are ruled with carmine ink and wear Jules Sellier's monogram. Slightly rubbed binding, last endpaper is loose, other minor defects, good overall condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Chess Monthly

      Jas Wade, London 1881 - iv+380 pages with illustrations, diagrams, tables, and index. Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 6 1/4") bound in quarter black leather with gilt lettering to spine and blue marbled boards. From the library of Dino Ruggieri. Volume III (3). (Betts: 7-25). First edition. The Chess Monthly of Great Britain was one of the first to give properly annotated games. The principal editor, Leopold Hoffer, was helped enormously by having J H Zukertort as co-editor until his death in 1888. There were four regular sections: news, annotated games, problems and endgames. In addition, Hoffer carried on a profoundly bitter feud with his one-time benefactor, Steinitz. This publication should not be confused with The Chess Monthly published in the United States which was short lived from 1857-1862 and edited by Fiske and Morphy. Dino Ruggieri was born in, Pigüé a small city in the Buenos Aires province, October 22, 1921. His parents were both Italians, natives of Porto D'Ascoli. In their early years in Argentina, the Ruggieri’s family lived in the country, located about 45 miles from Pigüé. The family was engaged in agriculture. When Ruggieri was 8, his father purchased a home in Pigüé, where he lived until 2008. In 1938 he was involved in an accident and he was transferred to Buenos Aires for recovery. This was the beginning of his hobby of chess, both as a player over the board and by correspondence, but as well as a major collector of chess materials. After his recovery he became a prominent local chess player and very good representative in postal chess, where he represented Argentina in matches against Italy, Yugoslavia, Holland and other countries. He was using the correspondence with his rivals to offer exchanges. Ruggieri was related to Mr Niemeijer and soon began exchanging materials and making important purchases. He also had frequent contacts with Gregorio Lastra, Normando Ivaldi, Gaspar Soria and Carlos De Veyga, all known collectors of chess. He died in 2009 in 2009 at the age of 88.

        Ayala's Angel

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1881. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, in three Volumes, rebound in three-quarter blue leather with complementary blue boards, spines lined, lettered, and dated in gilt, boards lined in gilt, and the top edge of each closed page block gilded as well, showing some edge rubbing to each Volume and a small chip to the spine head of Volume III. [Most copies were sent from the Publisher to the lending libraries, resulting in most copies becoming rather worn. In consequence, copies tend to be found rebound and, when still in their original cloth tend, to be quite worn.] The novel centers on Ayala, a young lady who, along with her sister Lucy, is left penniless by the death of their artist father. Each went to live with a relative and Ayala was taken in by her prosperous Aunt, Lady Tringle, whose loutish son falls in love with Ayala. In reaction to this, Lady Tringle makes a trade and sends Ayala to the impecunious relatives who had taken in Lucy and Lucy goes to live with Lady Tringle. Hugh Walpole described the tale as "...possibly the most unjustly neglected of all Trollope's novels...and yet it is one of the most charming of all the long list. It is the lightest and airiest of them all, it has a gaiety and happiness and playfulness that Trollope, gay and happy though he often was, never exceeded....what vigour of scene and creation, what vitality of action and dialogue it contains." The work was not reprinted in this triple-decker format an copies of this first edition are not at all common. A Very Good copy of this "charming" Trollope novel.

Although hardly Byron's equal as a writer, her prose somwhat turgid, she nevertheless enjoyed popularity on account of the travel writing she and her husband did based on their travels in the Near East. Lady Anne was one of the most level-headed of all women travelers. To find out how the Bedouin lived, she lived like one herself: she became a temporary nomad, riding the two thousand miles from the Mediterranean to the Persian Gulf for the most part in Arab dress, and without guides. She and her husband were trusted and accepted by the Bedouin. Indeed, the Amir himself presented them with his choicest brood mares to take home for their famous Crabbet Arabian Stud.. Second Edition. Decorative Cloth. Very Good Minus. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

        Tasmanian Friends and Foes: Feathered, Furred and Finned

      London: Marcus Ward, 1881. Small quarto, with eight chromolithographic plates, a fine copy in original splendid gilt decorated cloth. Second edition of a beautifully illustrated Australian natural history book, specially written for children by pioneer Tasmanian novelist Louisa Anne Meredith. Louisa migrated to Australia in 1839 tp join her husband Charles who enjoyed mixed fortunes in the colony. As a young woman in England, Louisa was remarkable for her outspoken political views and public support of the Chartists. Life in Van Diemen's Land held it's own challenges, and despite the lonliness and isolation of pioneering life Louisa maintained a steady literary and artistic output. The abundant natural history fascinated her: 'she studied plants, insects, seaweeds and fish of Tasmania's east coast and was an active member of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and an honorary member of the Tasmanian Royal Society' (DNB). During the four years Louisa lived at Port Sorrell she diligently recorded everything of interest. One such event was the disappearance in 1846 of three little girls and a boy in the Sassafras Valley, later found by Louisa's husband Charles. This dramatic rescure was fictionalised in Tasmanian Friends and Foes, and although the book primarily describes animal life for younger readers topics such as convict servants and the Aborigines are encountered.

        Catalogo delle camelie. Florence, printed by Mariano Ricci, 1881. 8vo. With a decorated initial and several ornaments on the wrappers. Disbound, but with the original publisher's printed grey paper wrappers in place.

      Not in BMC NH; Bradley; Merrill & Walker; KVK/WorldCat. Second copy located of a catalogue of flowering camellia shrubs, issued by the Mercatelli Nursery, one of Italy's leading 19th-century nurseries. After a short introduction on the origin and cultivation of the plant, the catalogue lists 300 different species of camellia, a genus of tropical Asiatic flowering evergreen shrubs or small trees, with short descriptions in Italian and French. The 300 species included represent only a quarter of the 1200 species cultivated at the nursery, and the selection strikes a balance between the prestigious old varieties and the best of the newly created varieties.Slightly browned. Very good copy.

      [Washington: Government Printing Office], 1881., 1881. First edition. 8vo. Original printed wrappers, 7 pp. President Hayes's attempt to redress the outrage done to the Ponca tribe by their forced removal from Nebraska to Indian Territory, where many of them died, during his administration. In 1876, Congress had passed an act to relocate the Poncas. Among the Poncas to die in the process was the son of Chief Standing Bear, who made his father promise to bury him along the Niobrara River in Nebraska. The sixty-five members of Standing Bear's clan, while going through Kansas, alarmed the settlers there, and were soon arrested by a cavalry detachment and taken to Omaha as prisoners. The Poncas, who had always been peaceful, were supported by General Crook, and two lawyers volunteered to take their case. It became a landmark case, and the 1879 decision established that Indians were equal under the law. Standing Bear was granted a reservation along the Niobrara. However other Poncas, including Standing Bear's brother, Big Snake, were not allowed to leave Indian Territory, and it is this problem that Hayes's message addresses. Hayes asserts that the Indian policy of the future should have Indians prepared for citizenship through education, with fair compensation for lands "not required for individual allotment ... In short, nothing should be left undone to show to the Indians that the Government of the United States regards their rights as equally sacred with those of its citizens." An important document. Fine copy.
