        Historische beschryving der stadt Amsterdam.Amsterdam, Jacob Meurs, 1663. Folio. With engraved title-page, coat of arms and 72 double-page engravinged plates. Contemporary motted calf, gold-tooled spine, rebacked with original backstrip laid down.

      Alden & Landis 663/47; I.H. van Eeghen, “Illustraties v. d. 17de Eeuwse Beschrijvingen ...,” in: Jaarboek Amstelodamum LXVI (1974), pp. 96-116, at pp. 100-101 & 104; Nijhoff & V. Hattum 75. First and only edition of an important and magnificently illustrated history and description of Amsterdam, written by the celebrated Dutch historian Olfert Dapper (1635/6-1689). The plates include maps of the city showing its growth from 1400 to the expansion that was still in progress at the time of publication, a city view, and views of nearly all important buildings in and around the city. The text covers politics, religious strife, trade in America and the East Indies, and is largely built around the buildings depicted. The frontispiece emphasizes the city's international nature by including figures representing the Americas, Africa and the Middle East. It was the first great account of Amsterdam since Pontanus's (Latin 1611, Dutch 1614). When Pontanus wrote, near the beginning of the Twelve-Year Truce with Spain, Amsterdam was just emerging as the Netherlands' leading city, whereas Dapper shows the city at the height of its glory.Binding rubbed along the extremities, and rebacked, as noted above. Some marginal waterstains, some marginal annotations in ink, plate with "Amsterdam van het Y aan te sien" reinforced with tape, and some minor spots. Nonetheless a good copy.

Titelvignetten in Holzschnitt (Druckermarke). Braune Wildledereinbände des 19. Jahrhunderts mit jeweils 2 goldgepr. Rückensch. Stintzing-L. I, 208. Vgl. Graesse III, 502. - Vollständige große Ausgabe der berühmten Bearbeitung des Corpus juris civilis. - Werk und Wirken dieses bedeutenden französischen Rechtsgelehrten markieren in der europäischen Rechtsgeschichte den Beginn einer neuen Epoche. Gothofredus' Werk gleicht an Bedeutung dem von Accursius am Ende der Glossatorenzeit und dem von Mommsen im Zeitalter der Pandektistik. Alle drei genannten Gelehrten haben am Corpus iuris civilis gearbeitet, welches bis in das 19. Jahrhundert Rückgrat und alles überragende Autorität der europäischen Rechtskultur war. - "Die Bedeutung Godefroys (1549-1622) für die Rechtswissenschaft beruht in erster Linie auf seiner Herausgabe des Corpus juris civilis. Sie umfaßte erstmals alle Bücher des Justinianischen Gesetzgebungswerkes und war von G. mit einem Kommentar versehen, der vor allem in der Praxis großes Ansehen genoß. In unzählig vielen Auflagen wurde das Werk seit seinem ersten Erscheinen 1583 (in Lyon) bis in das 18. Jh. hinein immer wieder nachgedruckt... Es kennzeichnet G. nicht als genialen Juristen, aber als einen philologisch geschulten Gelehrten, dessen emsiger Fleiß das von den vergangenen Generationen überkommene humanistische Wissen sorgfältig gesammelt und für das Verständnis des röm. Rechts fruchtbar gemacht hat. Stintzing sieht in G. einen Epigonen, aber auch zugleich einen großen Polyhistoriker" (H. Liermann in NDB VI, 656 f.). - Exlibris eines franz. Juristen, stellenweise im w. Rand mit kl. Wurmspuren, gutes Exemplar.

      Garden City, NY: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1974. First edition. A fine copy (no remainder spray) in a nearly fine dust jacket with some mild rubbing mainly to corner tips and spine ends. (16472). Octavo. cloth. 1974 Nebula and 1975 Hugo nominee. Winner of the 1975 John W. Campbell Award. "One day in 1988, the nation's top TV star wakes up to find himself unknown. No one has heard of him, there is no record of birth, he has no identification to show the omnipresent police. In Flow My tears, the Policeman Said. (Doubleday, $6.95), Philip K. Dick has written a proficient tale of an America taken over by data banks and bureaucrats. College students and professors have been ruthlessly separated from society, as a former advocate of law-and-order once proposed. In this dark future, all blacks are sterilized after the birth of their first child. By the time the hero finds himself an unperson, blacks are an endangered species, treated much as the whooping crane is today. But the sociological comment is only background; the real problem is whether JasonTaverner is the victim of a plot or a skid-row bum who dreams that he is a TV star. A recommended slide toward solipsism." - E.H. in Psychology Today, June, 1974. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-329. Survey of Science Fiction Literature II, pp. 797-801.

      Wiesbaden Franz Steiner 1974 - 3 Bände in 6 komplett. 31 x 22,5 cm. Original rote Leineneinbände mit Rvg., Bibliotheksschild auf Vorderdeckel u. gelbes Bibliotheksklebeband auf Rücken. Teils leicht berieb. u. verblasst. Innen mit den übl. Bibliotheksstempeln u. Einträgen, teils durchgestrichen, sonst sehr saubere Exemplare. Friedrich Wilhelm Deichmann (* 17. Dezember 1909 in Jena; † 13. September 1993 in Mentana) war ein deutscher Christlicher Archäologe und byzantinistischer Kunsthistoriker. Er ist insbesondere mit der Erforschung der Stadt Ravenna verbunden. Friedrich Wilhelm Deichmann wurde 1934 an der Universität Halle bei Paul Frankl mit einer Dissertation zum Thema Versuch einer Darstellung der Grundrisstypen des Kirchenbaues in frühchristlicher und byzantinischer Zeit im Morgenlande auf kunstgeographischer Grundlage promoviert. Es folgten fast 60 Jahre intensiver Forschungstätigkeit, die lange mit der Abteilung Rom des Deutschen Archäologischen Instituts (DAI) verbunden war. Zunächst war er 1935/36 Inhaber des Reisestipendiums des Deutschen Archäologischen Instituts. 1937 begann er in Rom seine Tätigkeit als wissenschaftlicher Referent für Christliche Archäologie. Mit Arnold Tschira begann Deichmann 1940 mit den Ausgrabungen am Helenamausoleum (Tor Pignattara, Rom). Es waren die ersten vom Institut durchgeführten Ausgrabungen seit 1913. 1942 folgte eine weitere Ausgrabung mit Michael Stettler am Tempel der Minerva Medica. Seit 1943 vertrat er zusätzlich zu seinen anderen Pflichten den zur Wehrmacht einberufenen Ernst Homann-Wedeking in der Fotothek des Instituts. 1944 war er an der Verlagerung der Bibliothek und der Fotothek sowie weiterer Unterlagen in das Salzbergwerk von Alt-Aussee bei Salzburg beteiligt. Für die Hilfe dankte er als Sprecher einer Delegation des Instituts Papst Pius XII. für dessen Unterstützung bei der Sicherung des Instituts. Gegen Ende des Zweiten Weltkrieges und in der Nachkriegszeit hütete er das zu der Zeit enteignete Institut. 1954 wurde er Honorarprofessor an der Universität Bonn und 1956 Wissenschaftlicher Oberrat, später Wissenschaftlicher Direktor bei der Abteilung Rom des DAI und nebenamtlich Professor an der Facoltà Valdese di Teologia in Rom. Nach der Pensionierung im Jahr 1974 blieb Deichmann weiter in Rom und widmete sich, bis zu seinem Tod auch mit dem Römischen Institut des DAI verbunden, intensiv der wissenschaftlichen Arbeit. Deichmann befasste sich vor allem mit den Hinterlassenschaften der drei spätantiken römischen Hauptstädte: Rom, Konstantinopel und vor allem Ravenna. Daneben forschte er insbesondere auch in Nubien. Über Ravenna verfasste er sein wichtigstes Werk, Ravenna. Hauptstadt des spätantiken Abendlandes. In diesem Werk dokumentierte er Topografie, Kirchengeschichte, Kulturgeschichte, Wirtschaftsgeschichte, Architektur, Bauplastik, Skulptur, Mosaikkunst, Ikonographie und Alltagskultur. Er gehörte zu den herausragenden Gelehrten, die den Charakter ihres Faches in ihrer Zeit prägten (Bernard Andreae).

        Épreuves corrigées "Dans l'eau changeante des résonances"

      - s.l. 1974, 16,2x25cm, 7 pages. - La prova Corretto Henri Michaux del suo testo nelle mutevoli risonanze d'acqua, - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Epreuves corrigées par Henri Michaux de son texte « Dans l'eau changeante des résonances », publié dans le numéro 22 des Cahiers du Chemin, daté d'octobre 1974. 7 pages avec des corrections autographes au stylo à bille et au crayon. Tampon de l'imprimerie Floch sur le premier feuillet. Michaux écrit « Dans l'eau changeante des résonances » à la fin de sa vie, et complète ses réflexions sur la musique ainsi évoquées dans « Premières impressions » (1949) et « Un certain phénomène qu'on appelle musique » (1958). Dans cette ode à la sanza, modeste instrument d'origine congolaise, il explore les possibilités d'une musique vibrante, qui investit l'espace et offre sa « texture » aux sens émerveillés de l'auditeur. Vouant une haine sans égale à la musique « de compétition, de composition » occidentale, il retrouve dans les simples sons de cet instrument rudimentaire une pureté solitaire, dynamique, qui le réconcilie avec le genre entier, qu'il avait laissé aux foules et aux « gens simples ». L'épreuve corrigée donne à voir les dernières modifications apportées par l'auteur : scansion du texte par de nouvelles virgules, remplacement de certains mots, ajout de majuscules à chaque insertion de poèmes dans le corps du texte - les poèmes agissant comme des descriptions sonores de son expérience musicale. Précieux témoignage génétique de la pensée de Michaux sur la musique.
