self-published. 1994. First edition. . Hard cover. Very good in very good dust jacket. corner slightly bumped. 195 p. Includes illustrations. . At the height of the Peranakan cultural richness between 1910 and 1930, locally carved teak furniture gilded in gold leaf were favoured by wealthier Peranakan families. These "brown and gold" pieces, conceived usually on a grand scal for homes of almost palatial dimensions, displayed intricate designs of equally lavish splendour. A recent revival of interest in collecting these rare and beautiful pieces now ensures the survival of this rich cultural legacy. Brown & Gold features some 80 such pieces found in Singapore, from majestic two-tiered cabinets, wardrobes and sideboards to miniature handkerchief cupboards. ., self-published, 1994, likely Paris, early 19th century. 77pp. Manuscript on paper, in French, written in a uniform script in a significantly later hand (c.1800), docketed “copie d’un ecrit de cet auteur” the manuscript is a complete transcription of a fair copy of an astrological treatise (which first appeared in 1555) written by prominent French astrologer and doctor Jacques de Viard; according to the dedication it was first transcribed in 1573 or 1574 when Viard would have been 56 years old. Containing three pen and ink diagrams depicting the twelve astrological houses with signs for the planetary rulership and planetary joys. Original 19th century wrappers; (edges uniformly browned, slightly brittle). The treatise is dedicated to Charles IX of France (1550-1574) who, at the time of the original transcription (c.1573) would have been suffering with tuberculosis and in his last year of life. The text was possibly revived at the request of the ailing king who, like many of his peers, relied on astrology to predict the future and distinguish the true from the false in their lives. This 19th century copy is an important record and is confirmation of the existence of this text. Jacques de Viard describes himself as, “Docteur en chacune faculté: Astrophil, Medecin, Conseiller et Phisiologue ordinaire du Roy et de la Royne,” and was an advisor who was intimately associated with the French court. Viard had also published the Fatal Diurnal (1567), a philosophical work, which associated him with the prophetic Nostradamus. Nostradamus (b.1503), a French physician and astrologer, was the official court physician King Charles IX from 1564 until his death in 1566. It is possible Viard had become “acting” physician-in-ordinary or counselor to the King after Nostradamus’ death. Undeniably, Viard was part of that circle in which prophecies, horoscope, and conspiracies dominated 16th century; astrology and sky observations played an important role in the courts of Europe at this time. This rare treatise is a fine example which confirms these popular notions. It is an exceptional survival of Viard’s collected studies on astrology. Viard’s treatise is dominated by the traditional division of astrology systems into twelve houses (the horoscopes) whose positions depend on time and location rather than on date. Furthermore, the houses are also grouped together by Triplicity, a theory which places one of the four elements (fire, earth, air, and water) in the zodiac sign which it rules. It is possible Viard may have tried to give new elements or theories in his treatise for this branch of astrology in order to satisfy one of the King’s last requests. Rare transcription from a fair copy of an important 16th century astrological text by Jacques de Viard. Made for or associated with the royal court of King Charles IX of France., xxiii, 341 pp. 9 3/8 x 6 1/2. Original blue cloth, gilt titles & top page ridge. Map showing the position of the Southern Appalachians is present opposite title page -- the area spans Maryland, Virginia & West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. Includes a wonderful bibliography of important works on folk music. ABOUT THE AUTHORS: Olive Dame Campbell (born 1882; died 1954) was an American folklorist. Born Olive Arnold Dame in West Medford, Massachusetts, she married John C. Campbell, American educator, in 1907. After his death, she co-founded and directed the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, North Carolina in 1925. Further, she helped in the formation of the Southern Highland Craft Guild. After a 1909 grant, she compiled Tennessee and Kentucky folk song lyrics with her husband. These were published in the seminal work, English Folk Songs from the Southern Appalachians by Cecil Sharp and Olive Campbell (1917, New York). Cecil James Sharp (22 November 1859 - 23 June 1924) was the founding father of the folklore revival in England in the early twentieth century, and many of England's traditional dances and music owe their continuing existence to his work in recording and publishing them. During the years of the First World War, Sharp found it difficult to support himself through his customary efforts at lecturing and writing, and decided to make an extended visit to the United States. The visit, made with his collaborator Maud Karpeles during the years 1916-1918, was a great success. Large audiences came to hear Sharp lecture about folk music, and Sharp also took the opportunity to do field work on English folk songs that had survived in the more remote regions of the southern Appalachian Mountains, pursuing a line of research pioneered by Olive Dame Campbell. Traveling through the mountains of Virginia, North Carolina, Kentucky, and Tennessee, Sharp and Karpeles recorded a treasure trove of folk songs, many using the pentatonic scale and many in versions quite different from those Sharp had collected in rural England. Generally, Sharp recorded the tunes, while Karpeles was responsible for the words. Sharp was greatly struck by the dignity, courtesy, and natural grace of the people who welcomed him and Karpeles in the Appalachians, and he defended their values and their way of life in print. Sharp's work in promoting English folk song dance traditions in the USA is carried on by the Country Dance and Song Society (CDSS).

The frontispiece, designed by S. Blesendorff and engraved by C.F. Blesendorff, depicts Julian on his throne, and standing in front of him Cyrillus; they are looked upon from above by the pagan god Hermes, at his side a pagan Greek philosopher, and by 2 female Christian angels. Title in red & black. engraved vignette on the title: depicting a vase from which thick smoke emerges; above the smoke in Greek: 'apollumenos euphrainei'. Greek text and Latin translation juxtaposed; several text engravings) (Condition: Binding scuffed, especially at the extremities. Spine ends chafed and with slight damage. Paper yellowing, sometimes browning, as is usual with Weidmann books of this period. Some faint foxing. Lacking the half title with the text 'Iuliani Imp. Opera, et S. Cyrilli contra eundem libri decem. Gr. Lat.', which should have been before the frontispiece) (Note: The Roman emperor Flavius Claudius Julianus, 331-363, is the best documented ruler of late antiquity. He was a nephew of Constantine the Great, ca. 280-337 A.D., who had adopted christianity, and imposed it on his empire. For dynastic reasons Constantine in between wiped out in a massacre the boys family. In exile Julian covertly converted to neoplatonic polytheism. Julian was later at the age of 24 appointed Caesar by the successor of Constantine, the emperor Constantius II. In this capacity he proved himself a successful general in Gaule, where he repeatedly drove back and crushed the invading Germanic tribes. After the death of Constantius in 361 Julian openly adopted and promoted paganism. Hence the title 'Apostata', because he was the last emperor who rejected and challenged christianity. He tried to revive the pagan state cult, and to restore the traditional pagan religious practices. His reign however lasted only 18 months, from 361 till 363. 'Julian's voice can be heard memorably in his surviving writings, particularly in his letters, in a fierce denunciation of the people of Antioch (Misopogon, Beard-Hater), and in a satire on his imperial predecessors (Caesars), which ends with a vicious portrait of Christ'. (The Classical Tradition, Cambridge Massachusetts, 2010, p. 500) Julian was both philosopher and a men of letters, and far too human for his time. His work Against the Galileans (Christians), meant to refute christian dogmas, is lost, but partly survives in fragments and excerpts in Contra Iulianum, a work full of slander, by a fierce enemy of Julian, Cyrillus, bishop of Alexandria. This Julian edition was produced by the Swiss cosmopolitan scholar and diplomat Ezechiel Spanheim, 1629-1710, a prominent name in the field of numismatics, who is best known for his monumental 'De praestantia et usu veterum numismatum' of 1664. He had an encyclopedic knowledge of the ancient world. We quote the opinion of the Dutch/Swiss classical scholar Daniel Wyttenbach, 1746-1820: 'Spanheimius multa, non multum legerat; at eruditio ejus censeri debeat multidine ac varietate, non vi ac ratione'. (Sandys, 'A history of classical scholarship' , N.Y., 1964, vol. 2 p. 327) The translations of Julian's works into Latin were made by the French Jesuit scholar Dionysius Petavius (Denys Pétau), 1583-1652, whose notes on Julian are also incorporated. Cyrillus work against Julian is translated by the French author Nicolaus Borbosius (Nicolas Bourbon), 1574-1644, and the French Hellenist Johannes Aubertus (Jean Aubert), who died in 1650. He was professor Greek at the Sorbonne) (Provenance: On the front pastedown: 'J.R. D'Arnay, E.P.P.L. 1734'. On the blank margin under the frontispiece: 'Studeri, 1726'. As there are no initials it is hard to say who this Studerus is. The name seems Swiss. Of the live of the Swiss classical scholar Jean Rodolphe d'Arnay, 1710-1765, next to nothing is known. We found a message about a lecture given by him in 1734 at the university of Lausanne. His function is 'Professeur ordinaire en eloquence et en Histoire'. His only contribution to classical scholarship seems to be his 'De la vie privée des Romains', first published in Lausanne in 1757, Paris, 1760. It apparantly was a success, for it was translated into German (1761), English (1771) and Italian (1771). What does E.P.P.L after his name mean? L for Lausanne? From the Rostagni Library. 'The Rostagni private library has been built over a time of 133 years, between 1880 and 2013, by 3 generations of collectors: Augusto Gabinio (1863-1939), internist, his nephew Augusto Rostagni (1892-1961), classical philologist at the University of Turin, and his son Luigi Rostagni (1932), Operational Director. (...) Augusto Rostagni thaught Ancient literature in various Italian Universities. In 1928 he was appointed professor in Latin literature at the University of Turin, an office he fulfilled until his death in 1961. He became one of Italy's most authorative philologists of the 20th century. He held positions of President of the Turin Institute of Classical Philology, Dean of the Department of Literature and Philosophy, Editor of the Rivista di Filologia Classica, President of the 'Accademia delle Scienze di Torino'. He was a well-known member of many Italian and foreign academies and institutions, amongst them the Accademia dei Lincei. The Department of Philology, Linguistics & Classical Tradition of the University of Turin is named after him.' (Burgersdijk & Niermans, Auction sale 340, Leiden, 2014, p.68) ) (Collation: p8 (minus leaf p1, the half title), a-h4; A-3L4 (leaf 3L4 verso blank); a-d4, e2, f-3q (leaf 2z verso blank, minus leaf 3q4); (3r)-(3y)2 (leaf 3y2 verso blank), (A)-(2Q)4 (pagination of 57/58 omitted), (2R)-(2V)2 (leaf (2V2) verso blank)) (Photographs on request) (Heavy book, may require extra shipping costs), London: MacMillan and Co., Limited, 1882. 3 volumes. First of the Edition. Engraved frontispiece of Milton in each volume. 8vo, handsomely bound in three-quarter tan polished calf over pleasing marbled boards with matching endleaves, the spines with raised bands separating compartments decorated with elaborate gilt panels showing central gilt ornamental devices at the centers surrounded by gilt tooled border work, two dark-brown morocco labels lettered in gilt to each volume, t.e.g. lxix, 312; [vi], 374; [vi], 420 pp. A very handsome and well preserved set, clean and tight and handsome both internally and externally. Only light evidence of age or use. A FINE AND HANDSOME SET. In PARADISE LOST, PARADISE REGAINED and SAMSON AGONISTES Milton revived the heroic verse of Homer and Virgil to frame the tale of Satan and Paradise that has become the best-known epic poem written in English. He had difficulty in finding a publisher because of the plague of 1665, which killed many pressmen, and the Great Fire of the following year, which destroyed many printing housesand those publishers who were still operating were wary of the project because of Milton's anti-Restoration sympathies. Simmons, to whom he finally came, drove a hard bargain, and according to the agreement reached and the number of copies sold Milton was paid a total of 15. Miltons work survives and is revered to this day as amongst the most significant poetry and prose ever penned and additionally important, at a defining moment in the development of the English language. A truly towering figure, Milton remains one of the most celebrated and analyzed poets in English literature. Dryden described Paradise Lost as one of the greatest, most noble and sublime poems which either this age or nation has produced, while Blake, keying in on the poems heretical implications, described Milton as a true Poet, and of the Devils party without knowing it. This thorough collection includes not only Paradise Lost and the other major works, but the sonnets, psalms, translations, and his work in Latin. As well, there is a fine Memoir of Milton and history of his literary work., MacMillan and Co., Limited, 1882, Yale / Gallery. New. 1997. Hardcover. 0300076975 .
