Petrus Lombardus QUAESTIONES SUPER QUATTUOR LIBROS SENTENTIARUM c1491 Incunable Gothic Lettering Koberger Imprint Decorative Initials

Lot 5002: Petrus Lombardus QUAESTIONES SUPER QUATTUOR LIBROS SENTENTIARUM c1491 Incunable Gothic Lettering Koberger Imprint Decorative Initials

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Title: Quaestiones super quattuor libros sententiarumAuthor: Petrus Lombardus - Peter Lombard, Peter the Lombard or Petrus Lombardus, was a scholastic theologian and bishop and author of "Four Books of Sentences," which became the standard textbook of theology, for which he earned the accolade Magister Sententiarum.Peter Lombard wrote commentaries on the Psalms and the Pauline epistles; however, his most famous work by far was "Libri Quatuor Sententiarum," or the "Four Books of Sentences," which became the standard textbook of theology at the medieval universities. From the 1220s until the 16th century, no work of Christian literature, except for the Bible itself, was commented upon more frequently. All the major medieval thinkers, from Albert the Great and Thomas Aquinas to William of Ockham and Gabriel Biel, were influenced by it. Even the young Martin Luther still wrote glosses on the Sentences, and John Calvin quoted from it over 100 times in his Institutes.Though the "Four Books of Sentences" formed the framework upon which four centuries of scholastic interpretation of Christian dogma was based, rather than a dialectical work itself, the "Four Books of Sentences" is a compilation of biblical texts, together with relevant passages from the Church Fathers and many medieval thinkers, on virtually the entire field of Christian theology as it was understood at the time. Peter Lombard's magnum opus stands squarely within the pre-scholastic exegesis of biblical passages, in the tradition of Anselm of Laon, who taught through quotations from authorities. It stands out as the first major effort to bring together commentaries on the full range of theological issues, arrange the material in a systematic order, and attempt to reconcile them where they appeared to defend different viewpoints. The Sentences starts with the Trinity in Book I, moves on to creation in Book II, treats Christ, the saviour of the fallen creation, in Book III, and deals with the sacraments, which mediate Christ's grace, in Book IV.Publisher: A.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Title: A General History of QuadrupedsAuthor: Thomas Bewick - Thomas Bewick was an English engraver and natural history author. By adopting metal-engraving tools to cut hard boxwood across the grain, he revolutionized the printing of illustrations using wood, and restored its popularity. As an engraver he took on all kinds of work such as engraving cutlery and making the wood blocks for advertisements, as well as illustrating children's books. Gradually he turned to illustrating, writing and publishing his own books, gaining an adult audience for the fine illustrations in "A History of Quadrupeds."Bewick's career began when he was apprenticed to engraver Ralph Beilby in Newcastle upon Tyne. He became a partner in the businesss and eventually took it over. Apprentices whom Bewick trained include John Anderson, Luke Clennell, and William Harvey, who in their turn became well known as painters and engravers.Bewick is best known for his "A History of British Birds," which is admired today mainly for its wood engravings, especially the small, sharply observed, and often humorous vignettes known as tail-pieces. He notably illustrated editions of "Aesop's Fables" throughout his life. (Courtesy of Wikipedia)Publisher: S. Hodgson, R. Beilby, & T.

10V THE WORKS OF SAMUEL JOHNSON 1818 Antique English Literature In Decorative Leather Binding Reynolds Portrait Poetry Essays Literary Criticism

Lot 5008: 10V THE WORKS OF SAMUEL JOHNSON 1818 Antique English Literature In Decorative Leather Binding Reynolds Portrait Poetry Essays Literary Criticism

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Title: The Works of Samuel Johnson, LL.D.Author: Samuel Johnson - Samuel Johnson, often referred to as Dr. Johnson, was an English author who made lasting contributions to English literature as a poet, essayist, moralist, literary critic, biographer, editor and lexicographer. Johnson was a devout Anglican and committed Tory, and has been described as "arguably the most distinguished man of letters in English history". He is also the subject of "the most famous single work of biographical art in the whole of literature": James Boswell's Life of Samuel Johnson. Johnson was born in Lichfield, Staffordshire, and attended Pembroke College, Oxford for just over a year, before his lack of funds forced him to leave. After working as a teacher he moved to London, where he began to write miscellaneous pieces for The Gentleman's Magazine. His early works include the biography The Life of Richard Savage, the poems "London" and "The Vanity of Human Wishes", and the play ""Irene." After nine years of work, Johnson's "A Dictionary of the English Language" was published in 1755; it had a far-reaching effect on Modern English and has been described as "one of the greatest single achievements of scholarship." This work brought Johnson popularity and success. Until the completion of the Oxford English Dictionary 150 years later, Johnson's was viewed as the pre-eminent British dictionary. His later works included essays, an influential annotated edition of William Shakespeare's plays, and the widely read tale Rasselas. In 1763, he befriended James Boswell, with whom he later travelled to Scotland; Johnson described their travels in "A Journey to the Western Islands of Scotland." Towards the end of his life, he produced the massive and influential "Lives of the Most Eminent English Poets," a collection of biographies and evaluations of 17th- and 18th-century poets. Johnson had a tall and robust figure, but his odd gestures and tics were confusing to some on their first encounter with him. Boswell's "Life," along with other biographies, documented Johnson's behaviour and mannerisms in such detail that they have informed the posthumous diagnosis of Tourette syndrome (TS), a condition not defined or diagnosed in the 18th century. After a series of illnesses he died on the evening of 13 December 1784, and was buried in Westminster Abbey. In the years following his death, Johnson began to be recognised as having had a lasting effect on literary criticism, and even as the only great critic of English literature.Publisher: G.

Lot 5009: Ken Kesey ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST 1962 First State Of First Edition In Scarce Dust Jacket Author's Debut Novel In Clamshell Case

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Title: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest: A NovelAuthor: Ken Kesey - Ken Kesey was one of Oregon's most famous, critically acclaimed, and controversial authors. His rise to literary and cultural prominence was the product of his distinctive skills and experiences.Kesey was born on September 17, 1935, in La Junta, Colorado, and in 1946 he and his family moved to Springfield, Oregon. In both high school and at the University of Oregon, Kesey was a champion wrestler. After earning a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Oregon's School of Journalism in 1957, Kesey attended Stanford University's creative writing program under the tutelage of acclaimed historian, novelist, and short story writer Wallace Stegner. While at Stanford, Kesey participated in U.S. Army experiments involving lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) and mescalin. These hallucinogenic experiences would change Kesey's outlook on life and inspire his writings.He published One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest in 1962 and the quintessential Oregon novel Sometimes a Great Notion in 1964. Both novels explore what Kesey saw as the conflict between modern industrial society and individuality, a struggle between conformity and freedom. This struggle was also central to Kesey's personal life, where he turned to psychedelic drugs to find personal liberation.Considered a founding father of the 1960s counterculture, Kesey promoted drug use as a path to individual freedom. He founded a group known as the Merry Pranksters and in 1964 he and the Pranksters traveled the country in a day-glo colored school bus named "Further." This bus was sometimes piloted by Neal Cassady, a Beat icon made famous in Jack Kerouac's 1957 largely autobiographical novel On the Road. The Pranksters were notorious for their "acid tests" and became the inspiration for Tom Wolfe's book The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, published in 1968. The Pranksters also promoted the "Warlocks," a band later known as the Grateful Dead.In 1965, Kesey's drug use landed him in jail for six months. Upon his release, Kesey moved to a farm near Eugene to raise his family. He would publish a loosely organized memoir of his experiences in 1973's Kesey's Garage Sale. In 1975 One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest became an Oscar winning film and Kesey briefly worked as a professor of writing at the University of Oregon. He published his third novel, Sailor Song in 1992, and lived in Pleasant Hill, Oregon, until his death on November 10, 2001.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Title: Harmoniae Evangelicae libri IIII Graece et Latine, in quibus Euangelica historia ex quatuor Euangelistis ita in unum est contexta, ut nullius uerbu[m] ullum omissum, nihil alienum immixtum, nullius ordo turbatus, nihil non suo loco positum : omnia uerò literis & notis ita distincta sint, ut quid cuisq[ue] evangelistæ proprium, quid cum aliis, & cum quibus commune sit, primo statim aspectu deprehendere queas. Item Elenchus Harmoniae Annotationum liber unusAuthor: Andreas Osiander - Andreas Osiander was a German Lutheran theologian.Osiander published a corrected edition of the Vulgate Bible, with notes, in 1522 and a "Harmony of the Gospels" in 1537. In 1533, Brandenburg-Nuernbergische Kirchenordnung vom Jahre 1533 was published, with Osiander assisting in both the source material the final editing. This combined order of worship and catechism was the first work to include the Keys section of Luther's "Small Catechism," of which Osiander is a suspected author.In 1543, Osiander oversaw the publication of the book "De revolutionibus orbium coelestium" ("On the revolution of the celestial spheres") by Copernicus. He added a preface suggesting that the model described in the book was not necessarily true, or even probable, but was useful for computational purposes. This was certainly not the opinion of Copernicus, who was probably unaware of the addition. As a result, many readers, unaware that Osiander was the author of the preface, believed that Copernicus himself had not believed that his hypothesis was actually true. Osiander also did not sign the preface added to Copernicus' book, therefore many readers at the time assumed that this is what Copernicus had actually thought himself.In 1550 Osiander published two controversial disputations, "De Lege et Evangelio" and "De Justficatione." In these, he set out his view that justification by faith was instilled in (rather than ascribed to) humanity by Christ's divinity, a view contrary to those of Martin Luther and John Calvin although he agreed with Lutheranism's fundamental opposition to Roman Catholicism and Calvinism. These beliefs were maintained after his death by Johann Funck (his son-in-law) but disappeared after 1566.

Rerum.Author: Samuel Bochart - Samuel Bochart was a French Protestant biblical scholar, a student of Thomas Erpenius and the teacher of Pierre Daniel Huet. His two-volume "Geographia Sacra seu Phaleg et Canaan" (Caen 1646) exerted a profound influence on seventeenth-century Biblical exegesis.Bochart was one of the several generations of antiquaries who expanded upon the basis Renaissance humanists had laid down, complementing their revolutionary hermeneutics by setting classical texts more firmly within the cultural contexts of Greek and Roman societies, without understanding of which they could never be fully understood. Thus Bochart stands at the beginning of a discipline of the history of ideas that provides the modern context for all textual studies.(Courtesy of Wikipedia)Publisher: Thomas RoycroftCity: LondonYear: 1663Printing Information: First EditionBinding Style: HardcoverPagination: [8] + [96] + 1094 columns + [124]Width: 10" Height: 15"Book Details: Bochart's "Hierozoicon sive bipartitum opus de animalibus sacrae scripturae" is a zoological treatise on the animals of the Bible. It was more than a Christianized Pliny's "Natural History" nor just an expansion of Conrad Gesner's "Historiae animalium." Bochart instanced the Arabic naturalists, like al-Damîrî and al-Qazwini, none of whose work had appeared in European print before.

Description: Title: Poems and Epigrams : Titled Aliquid Salis or If You Prefer English, Some SaltAuthor: J. V. Cunningham - James Vincent Cunningham was an American poet, literary critic, and teacher.

His finely crafted epigrams in the style of Latin poets were much praised and frequently anthologized. But he also wrote spare, mature poems about love and estrangement, most notably the 15-poem sequence entitled "To What Strangers, What Welcome" (1964).Publisher: The Perishable PressCity: Mount Horeb, WisconsinYear: 1967Printing Information: Limited EditionBinding Style: Other - see descriptionPagination: 14 leavesWidth: 5.5" Height: 8.25"Book Details: Condition / Notes: This is a scarce limited edition of this poetry collection.

Lot 5037: THE JOURNAL OF FREDERICK HORNEMAN'S TRAVELS FROM CAIRO TO MOURZOUK 1802 First English Edition Antique Africa European Exploration Fold-Out Maps

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Title: The Journal of Frederick Horneman's Travels from Cairo to Mourzouk, the Capital of the Kingdom of Fezzan, in Africa, in the Years 1797-8Author: Frederick Horneman - Friedrich Conrad Hornemann was a German explorer in Africa.Hornemann was born in Hildesheim, a city in Lower Saxony, Germany, located about 30 km southeast of Hannover. He was a young man when, early in 1796, he offered his services to the African Association of London as an explorer in Africa. The African Association sent him to the University of Gottingen to study Arabic and otherwise prepare for an expedition from the east into the unknown regions of North Africa. In September 1797 he arrived in Egypt, where he continued his studies. When the country was invaded by the French, he was confined in the citadel of Cairo to preserve him from the fanaticism of the populace. Liberated by the French, he received the patronage of Bonaparte. On 5 September 1798 he joined a caravan returning to the Maghreb from Mecca, attaching himself to a party of Fezzan merchants who accompanied the pilgrims. As an avowed Christian would not have been permitted to join the caravan Hornemann assumed the character of a young mamluk trading to Fezzan. He then spoke, but indifferently, both Arabic and Turkish, and he was accompanied as servant and interpreter by Joseph Freudenburg, a German convert to Islam, who had thrice made the pilgrimage to Mecca. Travelling by way of the oases of Siwa and Aujila, a black rocky desert was traversed to Temissa in Fezzan. Murzuk was reached on 17 November 1798.Here Hornemann lived until June 1799, going thence to the city of Tripoli, whence in August of the same year he despatched his journals to London. He then returned to Murzuk. Nothing further is known with certainty concerning him or his companion. In Murzuk Hornemann had collected a great deal of trustworthy information concerning the peoples and countries of the western Sahara and central Sudan, and when he left Tripoli it was his intention to go directly to the Hausa country, which region he was the first European definitely to locate. "If I do not perish in my undertaking", he wrote in his journal, "I hope in five years I shall be able to make the Society better acquainted with the people of whom I have given this short description." The British consul at Tripoli heard from a source believed to be trustworthy that about June 1803 Jusef (Hornemann's Muslim name) was at Caina, i.e. Katsina, in Northern Nigeria, in good health and highly respected as a marabout. A report reached Murzuk in 1819 that the traveller had gone to Noofy (Nupe), and had died there. Hornemann was the first European in modern times to traverse the north-eastern Sahara, and up to 1910 no other explorer had followed his route across the Jebel-es-Suda from Aujila to Temissa.The original text of Hornemann's journal, which was written in German, was printed at Weimar in 1801; an English translation, "Travels from Cairo to Mourzouk..." with maps and dissertations by Major James Rennell, appeared in London in 1802. A French translation of the English work, made by order of the First Consuls and augmented with notes and a memoir on the Egyptian oases by L. Langles, was published in Paris in the following year. The French version is the most valuable of the three. Consult also the Proceedings of the African Association (1810), and the Geog. Jnl. Nov. 1906. (courtesy of Wikipedia)Publisher: Printed by W.
