Friendship album of Conrad Friedrich Daumiller (Daumüller) from Nuremberg.
Nuremberg, Altdorf, Jena and other places, 1753-1756. - Oblong 8vo. Title page, 9 pp. of index, and 290 entires on a total of 155 ff. Contemporary red-dyed vellum, covers and spine elaborately gilt. A southern German student's curious and substantial friendship album, containing numerous entries and poems in German, Latin, and French, many with salacious or erotic content: "Ein Buch, ein Freund, ein Glas, ein wol gebiltes Weib / Sind der Galanten Welt vergnügter Zeitvertreib." - "Vivent les filles de quatre etages, / Jeunes, Belles, Riches, et Sages". - "Fällt un-gesundes Wetter ein, / So lachen die Doctores. / In Jena sollen Jungfern sein? / O tempora o mores!" - "In Jena giebts keine Jungfer mehr, / Es sey denn eine Fremde." - "Der Priester Fluch, / Der Juristen Buch / Und das Ding unter dem Schürztuch: / Diese drey Geschirr / Machen die ganze Welt irr". - "Ein Mädgen Zehn Tausend reich, / An Thalern, nicht an Flöhen; / Soll diese Viertelstunde gleich / Mit mir zu Bette gehen." - "Ein Mädgen und ein Orgelwerk, / So fern ich dieses recht bemerck, / Vergleichen sich in Vielem: / Denn Beide muß man mit Bedacht, / Sowohl bei Tag als wie bei Nacht, / befingern und bespielen." Among such risqué contributions are the usual pious sayings, as well as quotations from the classics and by contemporary poets such as Gellert and Lessing. - Conrad Friedrich Daumiller (Daumüller) hailed from Nuremberg, studied theology in Altdorf and Jena, and died in 1761, still a young man, as a candidate for a preacher's office at the Carmelites' monastery in Nuremberg. Another friendship album of Daumiller's is known in the Anna Amalia library in Weimar, covering a similar period of time but comprising no more than 28 entries (Stb 318; acquired from a Nuremberg auction in 1811; cf. K. Goldmann, Nürnberger und Altdorfer Stammbücher aus vier Jahrhunderten, Nuremberg 1981, no. 376). - A few leaves have been removed, apparently by a (near) contemporary owner. Well preserved; binding somewhat faded; gilt decoration oxydized; slight defect to lower spine-end. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
