Suffrage Diary, The Cape May Court House and Stone Harbor Equal Suffrage League

Authors

(Baker, Mrs. J. Thompson)

Description
A record of a suffrage organization at the grassroots level from 1913 to1917. At the first leaf is written "The Cape May Court House and Stone Harbor Equal Suffrage League", opposite is pasted in a flyer announcing a meeting "in the interest of woman suffrage...All the women on the island are cordially and urgently invited to attend, whether interested in the subject or not." Very likely Mrs. J. Thompson Baker, as President, kept this record of the League's activities. The notebook tracks newspaper articles on the League and its activities; notes the names of "sympathizers"; includes flyers put out by the League and ads placed in local newspapers; documents meetings and rallies and the members who attended; comments on the success (or lack thereof) of various suffrage events; and accounts for the League's finances

AUTOGRPAH LETTER SIGNED TO MRS. ADAMS

Authors

Stanton, Elizabeth Cady

Description
Mrs. Stanton writes Mrs. Adams that she is "welcome to use my name provided you give me no work to do". Citing her age, "I am seventy-seven years & shirk at the responsibilities possible", she refers her to an article she has written on the "Matriachite". Karl Pearson's 1885 essay, "The Woman's Question", "?makes women the greatest factor in civilization". Stanton declares roundly, "Historians have unearthed within the last fifteen years many facts to show the superior position women held through all the early periods of the race". She recommends her son Theodore Stanton's book, THE WOMAN QUESTION IN EUROPE (1884) ? a book to which she had lent considerable assistance ? "in which the leading women of the different countries each gives the status of the sex in her country". Mrs. Adams is possibly Alice Dana Adams (1864-1934) who later published the INTERNATIONAL BIBLE DICTIONARY as well as other titles related to the Bible and biblical studies

Jørgen Holst (-1663) var boghandler, forlægger og oldermand for bogbinderlauget i København. Han regnes også for den første danske antikvarboghandler. Han udgav bl.a. Simon Paullis »Flora Danica« og Bartholins »Institutiones Anatomicæ«. »Oeconomia Nova« blev udgivet som en serie om almennyttige emner, ofte som oversættelser. Kogebogen er udarbejdet af Anna Weckerin og oversat fra tysk af Povel Iverssøn Kolding og er den næsttidligste danske kogebog. Bogen om farve og blæk udkom oprindeligt på latin i Italien 1555, og er her oversat fra en tysksproget udgave, Schweiz 1570. Illuminerbogen er skrevet af Valentino Bolten, Schweiz 1559. Arksignaturene er gennemgående på I, II, III og V fra 1648, hvor IV. Horticultura falder udenfor. Arksignaturerne på Konfektbogen, Fiskebogen og Bogen om Bier fra 1649 er individuelle. Fællestitelblad, Dedikation og fortaler til Kogebogen og Bogen om Bier har arksignaturer med små bogstaver, hvilket viser, at disse afsnit er tilføjede i 1649, da hele værket blev samlet.à 98212.

Nuremberg was the home town of Johann Homann himself, and he gives a most attractive impression of the old city. While Homann maps tend to be in quite stereotype colours, this piece has been coloured with a fine sense of the details. The oblong panoramic view shows the medieval skyline of Albrecht Dürer's home town in all its splendour. Among the allegorical figures surrounding the the view is a putto with cartographic tools and a globe - probably an allusion to Homann and his business. 98221. HOMANN, JOHANN BAPTIST.

The map is nearly an exactly copy of the Covnens' and Mortier's map from c. 1720. The only difference is that the portrait of Peter the Great is here depicted in profile as a Roman emperor. The allegorical cartouche shows the grandeur of the city with symbols of trade, wisdom, science, literature, music, and travel. In the middle a profile-portrait of Peter the Great engraved in a medallion. The cartouche not only underlines the splendour of the city and it's European connections, but also the position of Peter the Great as emperor of Russia!

JYSKE LOV. Den Rette Judske Lowbog / Nu Nylige offuerseet / Corrigerit oc Dansken forbedrit / Aar M.D.LXXXX. Prentet i den Kongelige Stad Kiøbenhaffn / Aff Matz Vingaardt, 1590.

Nogle få mindre skjolder, som ikke virker skæmmende. 12.000,- * Jyske Lov er Nordens ældste kongegivne lov. Valdemar Sejr stadfæstede på rigsforsamlingen i Vordingborg 1241 den lovsamling, der efter sit retsområde fik navnet 'Jyske Lov'. Lovens fortale begynder med de berømte ord 'Med Lov skal Land bygges - men ville hver mand nøjes med sit eget og lade andre nyde deres, da behøvedes ingen lov ... var der ej lov i landet, da havde den mest, som mest kunne gribe'. Fortalen indeholder et helt statsretsligt program, baseret på kanonisk rets bedste retssætninger, som er blevet samlet til et klart og harmonisk hele, og det er første gang kongens rolle i lovgivningen fastlægges. Man mener, at biskop Gunner af Viborg har spillet en betydelig rolle ved udformningen af teksten. Loven var gældende, til den blev afløst af Christian V's danske Lov i 1683, men i hertugdømmet Slesvig vedblev den med at være grundlaget for den borgerlige retsforfatning helt frem til år 1900. Denne udgave af 'Jyske Lov' er den af Christian IV autoriserede udgave på nyere dansk revideret af kongens kansler Niels Kaas og rigsråd Erik Krabbe. Thesaurus 168. Laur.Nielsen 1071.

Brevet er en anmodning til Abrahams, professor i tysk og fransk, om at indgå i et bedømmelsesudvalg, der skal vurdere besvarelser af opgaven: »at udvikle den svenske digter Bellmanns poetiske Eiendommelighed«. Abrahams blev spurgt, fordi professor Oehlenschläger - digterkongen - var afgået ved døden (20. januar 1850). De andre medlemmer var professorerne Chr. Molbech og F.C. Sibbern. Lidt af en koncentration af kapaciteter! - og samtidig et vidnesbyrd om Københavns Universitets lidenhed på det tidspunkt. 49081.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Time and the Gods

Authors

Baum, Dunsany

Description
Here is the catalog listing of the two books that were stolen from the galss case in our shop. They were discovered on January 11th: "BAUM, L[yman] Frank. The WonderfulWizard of Oz. With Pictures by W.W. Denslow. Chicago: George M. Hill, 1900. 8vo, 261pp. Pictorial endpapers (fixed sheets only); 24 tipped?in color plates as well as a multitude of two color illustrations throughout the text. Spine ends and corners lightly worn, hinges expertly mended, spine sunned, covers very slightly soiled, lower joint and head and tail expertly mended and strengthened, pages a bit yellowed at edges, else an unusually clean, tight copy with the front cover remarkably sharp and bright. Neat ink inscription on front flyleaf to ?Dorothy Deering from Auntie.? In a clamshell case with green morocco spine. First edition, second state (having no box around advts. on p.a); first line of p.14 reads ?low wail of?; fourth line from bottom of p.81 reads ?pieces?; first line of p.[227] reads ?While The Woodman?; and the colophon is set in 13 lines with no box), third binding state (publisher's imprint being stamped at base of spine in red, serifed type with the ?o? in ?Co.? inside the ?C?). The plates opposite p.34 and p.92 have been corrected and the verso of the title page has the copyright notice printed on it. A little girl from Kansas is transported ?over the rainbow? where she makes several remarkable friends, encounters a humbug wizard, a perfectly hateful witch and explores that most colorful of fairylands, the Land of Oz. The book that started it all. Hanff/Greene I.2, binding state C; PPP p.111; Greene/Hearne 21. $9,500 DUNSANY, Lord. Time and the Gods. With Ten Illustrations in Photogravure by S.H. Sime. London & NY: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1922. 8vo, [x] 232pp. Marbled endpapers; 10 photogravure plates with captioned tissue?guards. Spine ends lightly rubbed, lower corners gently bumped, some light foxing, else a clean, tight copy in the original pictorial d.w. (larger than book ? as always, and so creased at edges). Rare. Signed by the author, Lord Dunsany, on the preface, and by the artist, Sidney Sime, on each of the 10 plates. First edition thus, being a deluxe issue, limited to 250 numbered copies signed by Dunsany underneath the preface and by Sime on each and every plate. 20 fantastic tales of the Elder Gods by master storyteller, Lord Dunsany, phenomenally illustrated by Sidney Sime. Sime's illustrations have a power and life all their own. The other two signed, limited editions done by Dunsany and Sime (The King of Elfland's Daughter [1924] and The Chronicles of Rodriguez [1922]) have only a frontispiece signed by Sime, making this the most lavishly illustrated (and certainly the most extensively signed) of the Dunsany/Sime collaborations. $1,850"

Il Fuoco Ristretto, Notice Raisonnee des Ouvrages de Gaspar Scott, Jesuite

Authors

Lorenzo Pagliarini, Mercier de St. Leger, Barthelemy

Description
"If these books sound at all familiar to you, please let me know promptly. Don't bother to request that, if I cannot identify the legal owner, I should quote the books to you. I have had plenty of such solicitations already. The following two volumes were offered to me this morning by a very obliging fellow who did not, frankly, seem to be the sort who would be a likely owner of such esoterica. He was happy to leave them with me for examination, and I regret that I harbor any suspicions of his bona fides: PAGLIARINI, Lorenzo Medici. Il Fuoco Ristretto, et Unito Discorso Pratico in cui si dimostra con nuova facilita nuovi modi di fare il fuoco.... Rome: Per Dom. Ant. Ercole, 1695. Small 8vo, contemporary vellum. On the rear pastedown this volume bears a neat inventory number: EYSS/1034/080 ; and a scrawl reading: "Coll. complet /4/12/57 [What looks like 'TJ']." & [MERCIER DE St. LEGER, Barthelemy.] Notice Raisonnee des Ouvrages de Gaspar Scott, Jesuite.... Paris: Chez Lagrange, 1785. 8vo, contemporary boards, pencilled paper spine label. On the front pastedown this volume bears the pencilled ownership nscription: "Robert S. Durham / Mar. 11, 1969 / Offenbacher"; and on the rear free endpaper appears in pencil: "perfect / IF / XII 14 53." Also this is very likely the copy of this unprepossessing work that as lot 773 at the sale of December 11, 1993 at Sotheby's, New York, fetched what seems to a humble provincial bookseller like me a surprisingly substantial sum. I should point out that these are both slim volumes that would easily fit into a bibliophile's pocket.... Please advise me if there is anything about one or both of these books about which I should take special note."

Armorial bookplate "Bibliothèque de Mouchy". 2250,- * Baillet was, from 1680 to his death, librarian to M. de Lamoignon, advocat-general to the parlement of Paris, of whose library he produced a manuscript catalogue raisonné in 35 folio volumes. It seems ironic that one should need to cosult Barbier to discover the author of this pioneering work, but the effort is rewarding, for here we read that - "Cet ouvrage [était] le premier publié en France sur ce genre de recherches bibliographiques". The subject is approached from various angles, the psychology of pseudonymity, the various types of cognomes etc. This was a preliminary treatise, which should have been followed by a "Recueil des Auteurs Déguisés" but unfortunately the author died in 1706 leaving his work unfinished, and it was not for another 100 years, with the publication of Barbier's Dictionnaire des Ouvrages Anonymes in 1806, that the project was finally completed. In his preface Barbier pays eloquent tribute to the erudition of his predecessor. 4 BIBLIOGRAPHIE DIPLOMATIQUE CHOISIE. Paris, à la librairie diplomatique, de J.P. Aillaud, n.d. (c. 1836). 8vo.

Contemporary mottled calf, backs gilt (corners rubbed, a few shallow wormtracks on covers). Small stamp "1777 Rouen" in lower margin of first textpage, with signature Havas; library stamp of the Hofbibliothek, Kleinheubach, on the titles or half-titles. 1500,- * Dominique de Colonia (1660-1741) was a French antiquary and man of letters, and also a Jesuit. The present work first appeared in 1722 under the title Bibliothèque Janséniste. After Colonia's death the work was considerably enlarged by P. Patouillet. Generally speaking the history of Jansenism, which may be considered one of the most important struggle in the spiritual life of three centuries - can be caracterised as a quarrel within the Western Catholic Church about a few theological problems, a quarrel which led to a still existing schism within the church. Except for some precursory events the struggle began in 1640 when - two years after the author's death - Jansenius "Augustinus" was published. The turbulent three hundred years history of Jansenism is complicated. The great quantity of problems and facts, parties, persons, and troubles, books, manifests, letters, briefs, bulls and pamphlets make it difficult to survey. This work analyses the jansenist writings or those writings considered jansenist. Still a useful work. 9 (CREVENNA, PIERRE ANTOINE). Catalogue des livres de la Bibliothèque de M.

The Crevenna library was one of the most important libraries in the Netherlands. It distinguished itself from other libraries in the eighteenth century Republic through size and structure. It was a library of international reknown, in the style of the great French bibliophiles of the school of De Bure. In 1775-1776 Crevenna had a catalogue of his collection printed in a limited edition for his friends. In 1776 appeared a new edition, also in a limited edition (6,238 items, excl. the collection letters). The library remained of importance after Crevenna was forced to sell it in 1789, due to financial problems. By now the library contained 25,000 volumes and had grown so much in the field of incunabla that it only lacked four or five important editions. The auction catalogue (not the whole library but 8,046 lots) appeared in 1789 and was edited by Crevenna and his librarian themselves. A lot of attention was paid to the research of the printing types of incunabula that lacked a place, printer and year. The catalogue consisted of 5 volums (V = author index, is missing here). Books and manuscripts from the Crevenna collection are the highlights of many important libraries throughout the world and for a long time both the privately printed and the sales catalogues remained important bibliographical instruments because of the quality of the description and the rareness of its contents. [ref. J. van Heel, in, Jaarboek Ned. Boekgesch., 5 (1998), pp. 73-93]. 10 (DIBDIN, THOMAS FROGNALL). Bibliophobia. Remarks on the present languid and depressed state of Literature and the Book Trade. In a letter addressed to the author of Bibliomania. By Mercurius Rusticus. With notes by Cato Parvus. London, 1832. 8vo. 102pp. Some pages foxed. Hcloth. Spine sl. dam. & faded. Boards soiled. 1975,- * One of 100 copies only. Written by Dibdin, notes by Heber. "In 1831 the book trade was sharing the general business depression arising out of the Reform Bill agitation, a situation aggravated in the case of the antiquarian trade by an epidemic of cholera, which made people wary of handling any possible source of infection. The circumstances prompted Dibdin to produce a small 4s 6d pamphlet entitled Bibliophobia... In this the author discourses with his usual ponderous levity on the low prices fine books and rare manuscripts were fetching at auction (with particular reference to the recent sale of the Waverly manuscripts which had gone for ridiculously low prices) and on the immobility of the stocks on the bookseller's shelves... Bibliophobia, a mere jeu d'esprit, relished only by a small circle of bibliophiles, brought its author no profit. "The chief reward, and the most heart-felt solace I felt, was in the epistolary congratulations of my old and faithful friends." Its chief point of interest to-day lies in the sketches of well-known bibliopolists of the day whose shops the author visits in the course of a morning's walk to investigate the state of the Trade." [ref. O'Dwyer, Thomas Frognall Dibdin] 11 DU BOIS, HENRI PENE. American Bookbindings in the Library of Henry William Poor. Illustrated in gold-leaf colors by Edward Bierstadt.

Bamberg, 1823. xii,457,(3)pp. 11 (mostly folded) plates of woodcuts, numerous woodcut illustrations in the text. Contemporary marbled boards. 1575,- * Good study on the development of the woodcut, the eldest block books and the, with woodcuts illustrated, books from 1450-1700 (a short chapter deals with the "gänzlichen Verfall der Holzschneidekunst of 1700-1823"). Especially interesting is the "Beilage" (pp. 299-399) on the origins of playing cards and the many parallels between woodcuts and early playing cards. The illustrations mostly show early woodcut illustrations and a large collection old woodcutter marks and monograms. "One of the best German works on xylography. It is now very scarce." (Bigmore & Wyman I,p. 695). Joseph Heller was a well-known writer on art. A scholar, he left his hometown only on trips for art purposes. Good, fresh copy. Scarce. 14 HULTMAN, C.G.

He was a lawyer, but, as this catalogue shows, was also interested in theology, history, geography, medicine, old and new literature and bibliography. The larger part with prices in pen in margin, small part also with names of buyers which shows us now what was important in Holland in 1821. There seem hardly to have been any foreign buyers, otherwise the prices that were realised would have been higher. As it was they were very low. 15 HUNTER, DARD. Papermaking by Hand in India.

In his autobiography "My life with paper" he writes: "My travels to Mexico, Europe, the South Pacific Islands, Java, Sumatra, Malaysia, China, Korea, Japan, Siam and Indo-China had resulted in more than a half-dozen books, all on the subjects of papermaking by hand... I decided that my next book should deal with papermaking in India... My travels and observations in India during 1937 and 1938 resulted in the quarto-size book entitled Papermaking by hand in India, issued late in 1939."

Still a very good copy. 18000,- * The present Catalogue of Prohibited Books supplements and repeats the Index published by the Council of Trent (1564). It contains three specific types of condemned literatue: works of authors previously censored, books forbidden by the Index and anonymous writings antagonistic to Sacred Doctrine. Such forbidden works found to be extant were to be burned within three months; their printing, sale and circulation were to be prohibited in the future. The present index was compiled by Arias Montanus. It excerted considerable influence as it laid the foundation for the following Spanish Index of Quiroga and was among "those expurging indexes" which prompted the Areopagitica. This "Antwerp Index was printed by Plantin, who had been designated "prototypographus"by Philip II, responsible for all local printers' oaths of fealty to the Crown and to the Church. Bound in with the Edict by Philip II of 15 February 1569 (= 1570 n.st.) in French, Dutch and Latin, in which Philip II of Splain forbids the printing, sale and circulation of protestant heretical literature and reaffirms the earlier decrees formulated by his father, himself and the Council of Trent (1564). The Edict was formulated by the bloody Duke of Alva and was directed particularly against the circulation of anti-Catholic works in the Netherlands, where many protestant refugees sought shelter. With an appendix imposed by the Duke of Alva on the Low Countries (1569). Sections in Latin (a large group of Bibles at the end), French, "Duytsche verboden boeken" (Dutch with a.o. Reynaert de Vos) and Spanish. Second Plantin edition. Issue with the reading at the head of p. 97 "Catalogo de los libros/en Romance, que se/Prohiben." Extremely rare. (cf. Voet 1442, 1444, Belg.

The collection of types is remarkably fine. They are purely old style, and after each size the initials belonging to that size are introduced...

Ole Worm lagde med sikker hånd et skema, som har været gældende for runomlogiske arbejder lige til vore dage. »Monumenta« er et storværk i det 17de århundredes litteratur og vil altid være uundværligt, ikke blot på grund af oplysninger, der ikke haves andetsteds, men som eneste kilde for runeindskrifter, der senere er forsvundne.

Worsaae var een af de første til at sammenligne de arkæologiske fund med andre europæiske genstande. En forskningsmetode som ellers ikke var udbredt og faktisk heller ikke var det helt op til 1930'erne. Hidtil betragtede man den arkæologiske forskning ud fra primært hjemlige forhold uden inddragelsen af de fremmede forbindelsers kulturelle betydning. I arbejdet her beskæftiger Worsaae sig primært med de blekingske runestene og indskrifter, som sammenlignes med øvrige skandinaviske fund og metoder i fortolkningen 21016. WORSAAE, J.J.A.

Biblioteksstempel på titelblad og side 5. 1.200,- * Runamo er en klippe i Blekinge, som allerede i Middelalderen var berømt for sine inskriptionslignende revner, som Saxo henfører til Harald Hildetand. Ole Worm undersøgte sagen i det 17. årh. uden at kunde tyde indskriften. Det danske Videnskabernes Selskab lod i 1831 sagen undersøge af en kommission betående af runologen Finn Magnuson, geologen G. Forchhammer og historikeren Chr. Molbech. Særlig bekendt blev Finn Magnusons opsigtsvækkende tolkning af Runamoindskriften, som efter en forbigående triumf beredte ham den største skuffelse. Opdagelsen vandt en ikke ringe navnkundighed indtil Worsaae 1844 beviste, at den såkaldte indskrift kun er naturlige revner i klippen." ****more listed, see "Ancher" or "Suetter" within author field

Sambundne I ét samtidigt [o. 1875] smukt privat sort halvchagrin med rygforgyldning. Enkelte sider gulplettede i alle titler. 1.400,- * I dette lille bind er sambundet nogle af det 19. århundredes mest interessante satiriske skrifter. Goldschmidts (1819-1887) legendariske tidsskrift »Corsaren« begyndte at udkomme i 1840. Tidsskriftet, der grundet sin republikanske og generelt respektløse indstilling ofte blev beslaglagt, hvorfor mange numre idag er uhyre sjældne, er ikke mindst kendt for den berømte fejde med Søren Kierkegaard, der pludseligt og voldsomt brød ud i 1845. I 1843 nærede Goldschmidt imidlertid stadig den største reverens for Kierkegaard, hvilket bl.a. kom til udtryk i nærværende nytårsgave. Efter de obligatoriske udfald mod kongemagt og kirke optages nemlig det meste af nytårsgaven af et storslået satirisk angreb på den hegelianske spekulative filosofi, som på dansk grund havde en af sine stærkeste støtter i Johan Ludvig Heiberg. Angrebet er helt i Kierkegaards ånd, omend ikke ganske i hans stilleje. De forskellige hegelianske stadier i »Åndens« historiske udvikling til selvbevidsthed gennemgåes med skarp ironi: I »Den i Meditationens Lys sig selv fortærende Umiddelbarhed« forelæser fx. et kjoleklædt æsel for en klasse af papegøjer. I den ophøjede »Idealitetens Periode« må den nu fuldvoksne sværmeriske idealist se sig knægtet af »Realiteten« i form af en pryglestraf for forstyrrelse af den offentlige orden ved sine højstemte gebærder. Flere af træsnittene er slet skjulte karikaturer af Heiberg med stram jaket og næsen i sky. * »Emtejægerne« med tillæg (Ehrencron-Müller s. 63 & 239) er den lidet produktive forfatter Knud Engelbrechts Valløes (1833-1877) hovedværk. Novellen gør tykt nar af samtidens middelmådige grundtvigianisme. Endnu bitrere er satiren i »De udvalgte digte af Kapellanen«, der groft og temmelig morsomt parodierer Grundtvigs skjaldestil og hans hang til svulstige sammensatte titler. Således kan man her læse tekster som: »Til Dværge-Krybet, som gaar på vælske Stylter«, »True-Brev til Troldtøjet« og »Anden Omgang eller Eja=Sangen«. * Det sidste medindbundne værk »Balle, en Gave i Sang« (ikke i Ehrenchron-Müller) indeholder en række pseudonyme bidrag, fx. digtet »Elskov« af digteren L. Skov (sic.). Her parodieres samtiden hule romantiske stil særdeles vittigt. 92200. GOOS, PIETER. De Zee Custen van Ruslant, Laplant, Finmarcken, Spitsbergen en Nova Zemla.
