A Sammelband of Five Manuscript Works].
?????-????????? c. -1815 1782 - Quarto (21.7 x 17 cm). Manuscript text in at least three hands on 150 numbered leaves, includes 5 works: ll. 1 - 73; 73 - 76; 76 - 78; 81 - 94; 97 - 149, text in ink of two colours within drawn boarders, with vignettes in text. Contemporarty half calf over paper boards with embossed floral ornament; rather heavily rubbed and bumped, spine chipped. A well-preserved in its contemporary binding manuscript collection of famous theological and philosophical texts, including those forbidden by the Catherine II's government in 1780s. It also includes a poem compiled most likely by the author of the manuscript and dedicated to the opening of the monument to Peter I. Content: 1) Collection of the Useful Flowers, containing 4 chapters: - First: Golden Book of Rabbi Samuel; - Second: Moral instructions to the Christians; - Third: moral medicines for different occasions; - Fourth: Golden verses of Pythagoras. 2) The memorable: a list of various events and dates from the birth of Christ to the birth of Peter I in 7180 [1682]. 3) Fortune telling by philosophers. 4) Ode on the occasion of the inauguration of the monument to Peter I. 5) Lives of the Saints. Especially interesting and controversial is the first work in the manuscript: "Golden book" was apparently written by a Moroccan rabbi and translated by the priest named Varlaam. It contains criticism of Judaism from the Christian point of view presenting an unfortunate condition of the Jews as a state of exile for their rejection of Messiah. First publication of this work in Russian was issued in 1778. Shortly before the issue of the second edition of the "Golden Book" by Bogdanovich in 1782, the work was illegally included in the publication "Collection of the Useful Flowers" by Gippius, who didn't have the rights for the publication of the translation. By 1787 distribution of the "Golden Book" was prohibited by the government due to the controversial theological judgments contained in it. "Golden verses of Pythagoras" had similar fate. The work was first published by Novikov in 1766 under the title "The Spirit of Pythagoras". As it enjoyed significant success, second edition of the work was published in 1786. But in the view of toughened censorship and persecution of Nikolay Novikov by the government the book was forbidden and its 430 copies were confiscated from the Moscow booksellers. __________________________________________________ ????????? ????????????? ????????, ?????????????? ????? ?????????? ????????? ????????? ???????????? ? ??????????? ???????, ??????? ? ??? ????? ???????? ?????? ??????????? ?????????????? ?????????
