WILLKIE, Wendell L..
New York 1943, Simon & Schuster. Stiff wrs., A4 size, very good, 86p., map, essays by this prsidential hopeful. With essays on China, Chiang Kai-Shek, Opening up China's West &c

In 1942, after losing the presidential election to Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1940, Willkie traveled around the world in a four engine converted Consolidated bomber named Gulliver. He traveled 31,000 miles and took 49 days for this circumnavigation of the earth and in the course of the travel met with world leaders, pleading the case for international peacekeeping after the war. * In this book Wendell Willkie gives a highly personal account of his meetings with Stalin, Chiang Kai-shek, General Montgomery, General Chennault and other United Nations leaders. He tells of his talks with prime ministers and kings, and with teachers, soldiers, librarians, factory workers, and farmers around the world. He reports a great awakening that is going on among the peoples of the world and his deep conviction that the United Nations must learn to work together now, while they fight, if they hope to live together after the war is over. * Claire L. Chennault, commander of the American Volunteer Group [A.V.G.] aka "FLYING TIGERS." In 1942, Willkie visited Kunming the seat of the home base of Chennault, and Chennault presented a letter to Willkie dated Oct 8, 1942 for hand-delivery to President Roosevelt, outlining just how the Japanese could be defeated in China. * From Wikipedia: Wendell Lewis Willkie [February 18, 1892 -October 8, 1944] was a corporate lawyer in the United States and the Republican Party nominee for the 1940 presidential election, despite having never held a prior elected political office. * Although Willkie in 1940 received more votes than any previous GOP candidate [22.3 million votes], he lost to Franklin D. Roosevelt in an Electoral College landslide: 449 to 82, carrying ten states. * After the election Willkie became one of Roosevelt's most unlikely allies. To the chagrin of many in his party, Willkie called for greater national support for controversial Roosevelt initiatives such as the Lend-Lease Act and embarked on a new campaign against isolationism in America. * On July 23, 1941, he urged unlimited aid to the United Kingdom in its struggle against Nazi Germany. That same year he traveled to Britain and the Middle East as Roosevelt's personal representative, and in 1942 visited the USSR and China in the same capacity. In 1943, Willkie wrote One World, a plea for international peacekeeping after the war. Extremely popular, millions of copies of the book sold. In 1941, Willkie helped to establish Freedom House together with Eleanor Roosevelt. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: Claire L. Chennault: WAY OF A FIGHTER. Several Willkie references and a letter to Willkie by Chennault. * Color scans can be sent by email.

WILLKIE, Wendell L..
New York 1943, Simon. Black cloth, very good, end paper maps 206p., b.w. photos, 14 x 21 cm. FIRST EDITION THE AUTHOR'S SIGNED PRESENTATION COPY

WENDELL WILLKIE: Was the Republican candidate who tired to to be President of the United States in 1940: ... In 1942, after losing the presidential election to Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1940, Willkie traveled around the world in a four engine converted Consolidated bomber named Gulliver.

In 1943, Willkie wrote ONE WORLD [this book] a plea for international peacekeeping after the war. * CHINA-U.S.A. RELATIONS WITH MADAME CHIANG KAI-SHEK According to Gardner Cowles publisher of the Des Moines Register, Willkie's visit to the Republic of China led to a bizarre consequence: Madame Chiang Kai-shek, the hugely ambitious co-ruler and First Lady of China, developed the idea that she could seduce and marry Willkie, use China's wealth to help him become president in 1944, and thus become the most powerful woman in the world. Cowles claimed that the affair was consummated in China, and that on a visit to the U.S. a few months later, she told him "If Wendell could be elected, then he and I would rule the world. I would rule the Orient and Wendell would rule the western world." He pointedly did not dismiss the possibility that Willkie, had he been nominated, might have accepted her highly improbable offer on some level. Extracted from Wikipedia. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: Claire L.

STEIN, M. Aurel..
London 1928, Oxford. Rose cloth, 4 vol. set: vol. 1-2 text, vol. 3 plates & plans, vol. 4 maps, bibliography, unclipped mended dust jackets in mylar protectors, 25.5 x 34 cm., brillantly bright superb clean copy. FIRST & ONLY EDITION

AUTHOR'S SIGNED FIRST & ONLY LIMITED EDITION OF 765 COPIES **** FIRST & ONLY LIMITED EDITION OF 765 SETS ** A monumental work, well illustrated study on the trade route countries of Central Asia. Always a rare set when complete. * "With descriptive lists of antiques by F.H. Andrews & F.M.G. Lorimer; & appendices by J. Allan et al." Volume 1, 2: text, 1159 pages, with text illustrations. Vol. 3: 137 plates, 59 plans. Vol. 4: 51 color folding maps in matching rose cloth case, with index tabs. ******* M. AUREL STEINS COPY: This is a very nice copy which was likely owned by the author as hia personal letter was found used as a book mark in one of the volumes. The letter is 19 x 25.5 cm., plain toned white paper, written by Sir Aurel Stein using a very wide fountain pen and blue ink. The letter is in remarkable condition and has been folded twice, but now is quite flat and solid. * WITH A VERY RARE HOLOGRAPHIC LETTER FROM AUREL STEIN: "At Highbroom, Ewhurst, Guilford: February 15, 1925 Dear Sirs, Thanks for your letter of the 9th inst. and the account rendered with it. I note in the account of entry of 10/6 charged for the Return of Income Tax for the years 1922-3 and 1923-4. As I was absent from the United Kingdom during the whole of these financial years, no Income Tax was due from the royalties received in these years on my behalf. I accordingly request the favour of an explanation as to how this charge arises against my account, and hope for a refund of the amount. Yours faithfully A. Stein" * Perhaps Aurel Stein got his reply from the Income Tax office and or this was a copy of his letter. It was found lost as a "book mark" found in this set. A lovely insight to Stein, and his thoughts on how the British government had wrongly charged him Income Tax. A lovely holographic letter, written in pen and ink, in his usual and steady hand. Stein letters are rare and seldom found on the market. ******** FIRST & ONLY LIMITED EDITION OF 765 COPIES. We understand that this set was issued in a Limited Edition of only 765 complete copies, the balance of 250 sets were incomplete as they lacked 48 maps. * THE MAPS AND MAP BOX VOLUME: The matching map box is also in bound in rose cloth, 25.5 x 34 cm., and is 5 cm. thick. There is some minor and usual wear to the upper and lower part of the hinged flap, with some old mends. The contents consist of 47 maps each with white index tabs, plus 4 other maps index tabs: "A,B,C,D," and the index, complete as issued. **** CONDITION: This is the brightest and freshest copy we have ever had in our 45 years of tenure. The cloth of the main three volumes is nearly flawless, with bright rose color, brilliant gold stamping on the spines and front covers. There is no scuffing whatsoever, and the head/tails of the spines are fresh with a few of the usual wrinkles expected. The joints are strong, tight and the book appears to be by and large unused. There are a few bumped corners: vol. 1: the front upper right corner has a very small bump; vol. 2: faint and very tiny hint of a bump on front lower right, else none; vol. 3: front right and left, and rear corners tiny bump, front lower right a larger bump, please see scans posted to our website for photographs. * DUST JACKETS: The set of three volumes all have the original dust jackets each protected in mylar covers. There was some of the usual wear to the unprotected dust jackets, and some restoration with matching paper was performed from the inside to stabilize the tears and small missing pieces. Overall the jackets are nice with some repairs to the upper and lower spine as well as corners and a few other spots here and there. Finding this set with the dust jacket is exceptionally rare and unusual. The set if ever found most always lacks the dust jackets. *** . * BIBLIOGRAPHY: Stein 1862-1943.

Manuscript; Kingdom of Hungary
1715
Eighteenth-Century Manuscript Relating to the Constitutional Law of Hungary [Manuscript]. [Kingdom of Hungary]. Observationes In Tripartitum Opus Juris Consuetudinarii Inclyti Regum Hungariae per Commissionem Systematicam in Arlo 24. 1715 Fundatum hoc 1717 Anno Posony Celebratum, Elaborate. [Arlo, Hungary, 1715-1717, 1726]. [101, 9 blank, 32 pp.] Folio (12" x 8"). Contemporary paneled calf, ties lacking. Moderate rubbing to boards, heavier rubbing to extremities with wear to spine and corners, rear hinge partially cracked, two leaves at rear of text detached, occasional worming to margins with no loss to text, contemporary armorial bookplate to front pastedown. Some toning to interior, text in neat secretarial hand. The second group of notes, 32 pp., are dated 1726. * Two sets of student notes on the Tripartitum. Compiled in 1514 by Istvan Werboczy [c.1465-1541], a Hungarian jurist and statesman, this collection of early customary laws, though never incorporated formally, was regarded as the second pillar of the Hungarian constitution. It was a de facto law-book of Hungary until 1848. According to the doctrine of the Holy Crown, which appeared in the Tripartitum, the king and the legally equal noblemen formulated the "corpse of the Holy Crown," which symbolized the Hungarian state. This manuscript is one such effort, in the early eighteenth century, to coordinate the Tripartitum with Hungary's constitutional statutes.

A UN-Habitat Award. Nairobi to Nanjing. - Hussam Bin Essa Al Khalifa und Howard King:
Hussam Bin Essa Al Khalifa und Howard King:
Bahrain: Private Secretariat Prime Minister's Court, 2009.
174 S., durchgehend illustriert. Fadengehefteter Originalpappband.

Sehr gutes Ex. - At the opening ceremony of the Governing Council Mrs. Anna Tibaijuka, Under-Secretary General of the United Nations, Executive Director UN-Habitat & Director General of the United Nations Office at Nairobi (UNON) officially honoured the selection of His Highness Shaikh Khalifa as the winner of the 2006 Special Citation Habitat Scroll of Honour Mr, President, Distinguished Delegates, Fortunately, we know that all these things are doable. It is not Utopia to fight urban poverty and to eradicate slums. Allow me to demonstrate how and where housing poverty and homelessness has been prevailed upon successfully and in a relatively short period of time, within a lifetime because of vision, good governance, political commitment, care and solidarity with the poor. The winner of the prestigious Special Citation Award of the Habitat Scroll of Honor for year 2006 is His Highness Shaikh Khalifa Bin Salman AI Khalifa, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Bahrain. As his Special Envoy will further elaborate, Shaikh Khalifa has dedicated his life to deliver sustainable development in his country by fighting poverty and working for all his citizens. We at UN-Habitat have admired and identified his leadership and policies as a best practice in good urban governance to be emulated. We have been working in that country for several years under our urban indicators programme and have collected and analysed reliable first-hand information that living conditions for all have been transformed dramatically. Some might hasten to add that the Prime Minister of \ Bahrain has presided over a country rich in oil. But if we look around, we see many other countries where huge oil and other natural resource endowments and revenues have failed and continue to fail to benefit the common citizen. Instead such rich natural resources have become a source of conflict, and ended up displacing rural residents who are now refugees in sprawling urban slums. In many parts of the world, : notably Africa, natural resources have become a curse rather than a blessing. In Bahrain, it is exactly the opposite. Under the able leadership of Shaikh Khalifa who has been at the helm of his country since 1971 as Prime Minister, the incomes from oil have trickled down to the lowest income levels of society, and resulted in a harmonious society. Please join me in a round of applause to congratulate Shaikh Khalifa for his outstanding achievements that have now brought him this prestigious recognition. In conclusion, UN-Habitat will be pleased to work with the Government of Bahrain in popularizing this approach, and inviting others to emulate this good example! One billion fellow human beings are counting on us. This Governing Council has a moral and ethical obligation not to fail them. Ethical issues apart,-sustainable urbanization is also an economic and environmental imperative without which peace, stability and sustainable development cannot be achieved.... (Vorwort)

[WICQUEFORT, Abraham de].
The Hague, Adrian Vlack, 1660.
Folio. Contemporary vellum. With engraved coat-of-arms of Charles II on title, engraved headpiece with coat-of-arms, folding portrait of Charles II (337 x 282 mm.), and 6 beautiful large double-page engraved plates (ca. 305-400 x 385-500 mm.) by David (1) and Pierre (3) Philippe and Theodor Matham (1) after J. Toorenvliet (3) and A. van de Venne (2). (4), 124 (=126), (6) pp.

Original and only edition of this fine example of a 'Splendid Ceremony', extensively described and richly depicted, concerning the journey of Charles II of Stuart during the period 25 May till 2 June 1660, from the Dutch city of Breda, where Charles had stayed in exile, to Delft and The Hague, and his setting sail from the port of Scheveningen, to England to regain his Crown, made possible by Lord George Monk. Although the text was originally written in French, the work was simultaneously published in The Hague in French, and in the Dutch and English translations, all editions containing the same finely engraved plates, showing Charles's arrival in Delft and The Hague (on the Vijverberg), his reception in The Hague with a banquet at the Mauritshuis (the later William III sitting next to Charles), two plates of Charles II addressing the Dutch Parliament, one with the members standing, by Theodor Matham, and one with the members seated and Charles's departure from Scheveningen, after a very fine design by the famous artist Adriaan van de Venne. All the plates are in their fresh first states (see: Muller).The author of the text probably was the colourful Abraham van Wicquefort (1598-1682), who after having been the Resident in Paris for the Elector of Brandenburg from 1626 to 1658, was appointed Historian of Holland by his patron the Pensionary Johan de Witt. He also was the Resident in The Hague of the famous art collector and collector of books, the Duke of Brandenburg August of Wolfenbüttel. Abraham van Wicquefort had access to important government papers and securities and this is exactly what the publisher is saying in his preface: that the story is based on the most first-hand and valuable sources and eye-witness accounts.book is concluded by a long laudatory poem on the text by the Dutch poet J. Westerbaen and a shorter poem in praise of George Monk, 'Brittanici Imperii Regisque restaurator' by Jacobus Baselius.
Fine copy of a rare and beautiful work. -(Some minor restorations; new ties to binding; one plate somewhat shorter.

HORATIUS.
Basel (Basileae), Per Sebastianum Henricpetri, 1580.
Folio. (XXIV)(XXXVI),2280 columns, (12 index, and printer's mark at the end) p. 19th century full calf. 35 cm (Ref: VD16 H 4874; Schweiger 2,398; Dibdin 2,94; Moss 2,12/13; Ebert 10159; Riedel Horatiana 51) (Details: Back with 5 raised bands; gilt short title in second compartment; woodcut printer's mark on title, depicting a rock on which a hand from heaven strikes fire with a hammer. The fire is aroused by a human head (cloud?) blowing from the sky; the second printer's mark on the verso of the last leaf is a simpler version of the image, now with the addition of the name of the printer 'Sebastian Henric Petri'. The 2 letters 'n' in the name are strangely enough cut backwards mirrorwise; woodcut initials; printed in 2 columns; the poems of Horace, printed in a beautifull Roman letter, are surrounded by commentary, printed in italics, thus more or less suggesting the layout of a medieval manuscript) (Condition: The foot of the spines somewhat chafed; front flyleaf gone; title a bit soiled; old name on the title; occasional yellowing paper; occasional some faint and small waterstains; small wormhole in the blank right upper corner of some 80 leaves, not affecting text; the binder erroneously switched leaf Ee1 and Ee6 ) (Note: The works of the Roman poet Quintus Horatius Flaccus, 65-8 B.C., have enjoyed a continuous presence in European culture. His memorable phrases made him the most quoted ancient author. Till well into the 20th century he stood central in school curricula. Earlier, in the Middle Ages, he was next to Vergil the most important school author. Horace is transmitted in around 300 medieval manuscripts. The Renaissance saw the beginning of a flood of editions. 'For Neo-latin poetry until modern times, and for all the vernacular literature of Europe from the 16th through the 18th centuries, Horace provided the dominant model both for private lyrics celebrating wine and love and for public lyrics celebrating affairs of state'. Young poets used Horace to learn the trade. 'Horace's elegant rationalism and moral wisdom, and also his disabused and tolerant tone, made his poems favorite reading during the Enlightenment'. (The Classical Tradition, Cambr. Mass., 2010, p. 454/60) This edition of Horace is a kind of Variorum edition. It offers the observations and emendations of 40 Horace scholars, old and new, including the commentaries of the scholiasts Helenius Acron and Porphyrius. It does not break new ground, Lambinus seems not to exist, but it is a real treasure chest for Horatian philology, supplying all what is worth knowing of Horace and his poetry. It is a reissue of the edition of 1555, which was produced by the German classical scholar Georg Fabricius, 1516-1571. 'Seine Ausgaben von Vergil, Horaz und Ovid zeichnen sich nicht nur durch philologische Akribie aus, sondern sind auch wegweisend für die Interpretation'. (NDB 4,734) A remarkable feature of this edition is the space which is attributed to the Ars Poetica. Commentaries, treatises on the AP by Landinus, Luisinus, Grifolus Lucinianensis, Iason & Gabriel de Nores, Parrhasius, Amarbachius & Freigius, fill almost a quarter of the book. It is a pity that Robertello's work on the Ars Poetica was not included. Still this 1580 edition is declared to be indispensable by Dr. Harwood: 'This is the great treasure of learning bestowed on Horace. My learned and worthy friend Dr. Parr, one of the best classical scholars in this kingdom, many years ago informed me of the distinguished merit of this edition. It contains the observations and remarks on Horache, which were made by the great scholars of that illustrious age, the glorious age of the revival of literature, as well as the criticism of all the old commentators on Horace, Acron, Porphyrion &c'. (E. Harwood, 'A view of the various editions of the Greek & Roman classics', 4th ed., London, 1790, p. 221/222) (Provenance: Name on the title of 'R. Alberda'. This must be a 'Reynt Alberda', or a 'Reint' Alberda'. This christian name is the most frequently used name for men in the Alberda family of Northern Dutch gentry, so it is hard to say who this might be. The handwriting seems to be 18th century) (Collation: * - 2*6, a - c6, A - Z6, Aa - Zz6, AA - ZZ6, AAa- ZZz6. AAaa - DDdd6) (Photographs on request)

Buckingham, United Kingdom Open University Press 1990
Library sticker on the spine, inside of the cover and on the FEP. Stamp on title page, creasingto the cover and rubbing to the ends. Throughout the 1980s, the National Health Service has been the subject of almost continuous re-organization and constant political debate. Its sheer size and complexity, however, baffled most attempts at systematic description and analysis. This is a guide to the way the NHS works. Based on anthropological research behind the scenes in seven district health authorities, it features first-hand accounts of the age old methods of administration and the new attempts at business-style management. It will be of interest not only to health service professionals and academics in social policy, public administration and health studies, but also to anyone interested in our changing national health service No Dust Jacket paperback Government Reference Library

MONTAGU, George.
London, J. White (printed by J.S. Hollis, Romsey; supplement by S. Woolmer, Exeter), [1803-] 1808[-ca. 1810].
3 parts in 1 volume. Large 4to (27.5 x 21.5 cm). 20th-century brown half goatskin morocco, marbled sides, with the original wrappers of heavy plain paper bound in. With 3 engraved title-pages (the first two together with 13 figures showing shells), more than 200 figures in 30 engraved plates, showing shells, all drawn and engraved by Eliza Dorville (ca. 1770-1844), Montagu's mistress. With 20 excellent original ink and watercolour drawings of shells (ca. 1801) bound in, along with 4 slips containing 5 engraved figures showing shells. All engraved shell figures coloured by a contemporary hand. [2], XXXVII, [2], [1 blank], 291, [1 blank]; [1], [1 blank], 293-606, [4]; [2], V, [1 blank], 183, [1] pp.

Rare complete set (two parts plus the supplement) of an extensive and thoroughly illustrated account of British shells, here with 20 excellent original watercolour drawings of shells with the species noted in neatly written captions, bound in near the relevant descriptions (4 additional slips contain engravings of shells). The artist who made the inserted watercolour drawings is not named, but one of the shells was found by a certain Miss Pocock on the Hayle Sands below Lelant on the northern coast of Cornwall in the summer of 1801. The twenty original watercolours appear to be drawn in a consistent style on matching wove paper, five show a watermark "1797," one is dated 1801 (another mentions that year, as noted above), and three refer to plates in Donovan, presumably Edward Donovan, <I>The Natural History of British Shells</I>, [1799]-1804 (plates 101, 125 & 134). Most are numbered (16 numbers between 1 and 72) and cite page numbers (from 27 to 154). The thirty plates that form an integral part of the present book were drawn and engraved by Eliza Donville (ca. 1770-1844), mistress of the author, Colonel George Montagu (1755-1815), who called her his "friend of science." She had a daughter by her husband in 1792, then separated from him. By the time the first part of the present work appeared in 1803 she had at least one child by Montagu, and by the time his wife died in 1805 she had three (all four children are mentioned in his will). Eliza continued to live with him and illustrate his natural history publications to his death in 1815. The inserted engravings of shells are numbered 71-72 and 74-76 and bear the name Turton, so they may come from William Turton, <I>A Conchological Dictionary of the British Islands</I>, 1819.The engraved title-pages to parts one and two (by Donville and dated 1803: the letterpress title-pages are undated) give the title as "Testacea Britannica or Natural History of British Shells." The engraved title-page for the supplement (engraved by J. Hibbert, Bath) is undated but the letterpress title-page is dated 1808. The letterpress text and the engraved plates are printed on wove paper by several English manufacturers (in the plates Edmeads & Pine, J. Ruse, James Whatman and John Hall). A few of the plates were apparently completed after 1808, for at least in the present copy the Whatman paper of plate 25 includes a watermark date "1810." The heavy plain-paper wrappers bound in with the present copy are watermarked "Rye Mill|1821."
With the 20-century bookplate of Vittorio Arioli. In very good condition, with minor foxing in the book itself and in the inserted watercolour drawings, one of which has a tear repaired, slightly affecting the tip of the shell. An important and well-illustrated work on British shells, here with 20 excellent original watercolour drawings bound in.

Agsteribbe, Frank:
S. 32, Frank Agsteribbe (Gent, 1968) Elegiae (2003) Vorwort Frank Agsteribbe ist ein vielseitiger Musiker, der sich als Cembalist, Dirigent, Komponist und Musiktheoretiker betätigt. Nach seiner Orgelausbildung am Königlichen Flämischen Konservatorium Antwerpen studierte er Cembalo bei Jos Van Immerseel, Gustav Leonhardt, Davitt Moroney und Luigi Ferdinando Tagliavini. Er spielt mit herausragenden Barockorchestern (Il Fondamento, Huelgas Ensemble, Anima Eterna, La Petite Bande, Collegium Vocale), gibt Konzerte in europäischen Ländern, Mexico und China und wirkt häufig mit bei Rundfunk- und CD-Aufnahmen. Er ist Mitgründer und ständiger Cembalist des Barockorchesters B'Rock, das sein erstes Konzert im September 2005 gab und seither äusserst erfolgreiche Tourneen in Belgien, Deutschland und Holland absolvierte. Seit einigen Jahren widmet er sich dem Dirigieren, wofür er sich bei David Angus (England), Diego Masson (Paris, Dartington), Lucas Vis (Holland) und Richard Armstrong (Scottish Opera) ausbilden ließ. Bisher dirigierte er schon ein vielgestaltiges Repertoire, das von La Dafne (1608) von Marco da Gagliano über Symphonien von Beethoven und Brahms bis zu Werken von John Cage und Frank Nuyts reicht. Komposition studierte Frank Agsteribbe bei Frederic Rzewski. Seine intensive Beschäftigung mit Alter Musik beeinflusst seinen Stil wesentlich, wie aus Titeln wie Haydn-Variationen (1991), Tallis-Variationen (1992), Susanna (nach Lassus, 1994), Partita per Violoncello solo (2002), Nacht mit BACH (2003) oder Piamozartet (2006) hervorgeht. Über vierzig seiner Kompositionen wurden vom Rundfunk oder auf CD aufgenommen. Seit einigen Jahren wird er auch mehr und mehr außerhalb Belgiens aufgeführt bei wichtigen Konzerten in Brasilien, Berlin (Konzerthaus und Deutsche Oper) und beim Gaudeamus Festival in Amsterdam. Seit 1989 ist Frank Agsteribbe Dozent für Analyse am Königlich Flämischen Konservatorium Antwerpen. Das Orchesterwerk Elegiae schrieb im Auftrag des Flämischen Rundfunkorchesters. Die Uraufführung fand am 1. Oktober 2003 unter der Leitung von Bjarte Engeset statt, danach wurde das Werk noch in verschiedenen Städten Flanderns gespielt. Der Titel Elegiae (Elegien) ist bezeichnend für die Grundidee: Trauergesänge. Hierzu wurde der Komponist angeregt durch einen Besuch der Katakomben in Rom einerseits, ein kleines Stück von Dietrich Buxtehude andererseits, nämlich die Arie Muss der Tod denn nun doch trennen, eine verinnerlichte Elegie. Einige Bruchstücke dieser Arie werden am Ende der Elegiae wörtlich zitiert. Außerdem wird auch eine für Streicher spezifische Schreibweise von Anfang an übernommen, das so genannte Bogenvibrato', in der Barockzeit ein typischer Ausdruck der Wehmut. Elegiae hat drei musikalische Themen: ein Signalthema (das hauptsächlich von den Trompeten gespielt wird), ein Choralthema und eine eher abstrakte' Melodie. Sie wird bei der Eröffnung des Werkes von verschiedenen Holzbläsern ausgeführt, die dieses Thema untereinander durchgeben. Die ganze Komposition ist als eine einzige, mächtige Steigerung aufgefasst. Nach der ohrenbetäubenden Explosion der Emotionen folgt zum Schluss das Buxtehude-Zitat, in sich gekehrt, aber hier und da kommentiert von dem Signalmotiv und einer Reminiszenz an das Choralthema. Frank Agsteribbe / Jan Dewilde (Übersetzung Michael Scheck) Aufführungsmaterial: http://users.telenet.be/frankagsteribbe Diese Partitur wurde herausgegeben in Zusammen-arbeit mit dem Studienzentrum für Flämische Musik (Studiecentrum voor Vlaamse Muziek) (www.svm.be). top of page Frank Agsteribbe (Gent, 1968) Elegiae (2003) Preface Frank Agsteribbe is a talented musician who plays the clarinet, a composer and music theoretician. After his organ studies at the Royal Flemish Conservatory of Music in Antwerp, he studied harpsichord with Jos Van Immerseel, and he completed his studies with Gustav Leonhardt, Davitt Moroney and Luigi Ferdinando Tagliavini. He plays with prominent baroque orchestras (Il Fondamento, Huelgas Ensemble, Anima Eterna, La Petite Bande, Collegium Vocale), performs in different European countries, Mexico and China, and often collaborates in radio and CD recordings. He is the co-founder and harpsichordist of the baroque orchestra B'Rock, which performed for the first time in September 2005 and has enjoyed great success in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany ever since. He has also been concentrating on orchestral conducting for quite some years now. He has studied with David Angus (United Kingdom), Diego Masson (Paris, Dartington), Lucas Vis (the Netherlands) and Richard Armstrong (Scottish Opera) and has since conducted a very diverse repertory, including La Dafne (1608) by Marco da Gagliano, symphonies by Beethoven and Brahms and pieces by John Cage and Frank Nuyts. Agsterribe studied composition with Frederic Rzewski. His direct contact with old music defines his style of composing, which can be deducted from titles such as: Haydn-variaties (Haydn Variations) (1991), Tallis-variations (1992), Susanna (after Lassus; 1994), Partita per violoncello solo (2002), Nacht mit BACH (2003) of Piamozartet (2006). More than forty of his compositions were recorded for radio broadcasts or CD's. These last few years, his work is also being performed outside of Belgium, with important concerts in Brazil, Berlin (Konzerthaus en Deutsche Opera) and at the Gaudeamus Festival in Amsterdam. Since 1989, Agsteribbe has been teaching analysis at the Royal Flemish Conservatory of Music in Antwerp. He was asked to compose the orchestral work Elegiae, by the Flemish Radio Orchestra; they performed the work for the first time on 1 October 2003, conducted by Bjarte Engeset, and went on to perform it in many different Flemish cities. The title Elegiae alludes to the general starting point of the composition: elegies. The composer was inspired by a visit to the catacombs in Rome on the one hand, and a short piece of music by Dietrich Buxtehude on the other hand by: the aria Muss der Tod denn nun doch trennen, a modest lamentation. A few fragments from this aria are quoted literally at the end of the Elegiae. The specific style of writing for strings (the so-called 'bow vibrato', very typical for the baroque expression of melancholy) has also been adopted from the beginning of the piece. Elegiae has three main themes: a signalling theme (usually played by the trumpets), a choral theme and a more 'abstract' melody (can be heard at the start; several woodwind players are passing on the theme to one another) The work has been composed as one large climax: the deafening outburst of emotions is followed by the quote of Buxtehude: modest, every now and then commented on by the signalling motive and a reminder of the choral theme.

There are strange goings-on at the Opera House in Ankh-Morpork. A ghost in a white mask is murdering, well, quite a lot of people, and two witches (it really isn't wise to call them "meddling, interfering old baggages"), or perhaps three, take a hand in unravelling the mystery. Fans of the popular Discworld series will be happy to see some old friends again in Maskerade, the 18th novel in the series First Edition No Dust Jacket hardcover Clean Copy

Contemporary mottled calf, both sides with gilt lines and floral borders around a gilt centre piece: Minerva sitting under a tree, and holding a book with her left hand and leaning with her right arm on the coat of arms of the city of Haarlem with the motto 'Vicit vim virtus' underneath (=Spoelder, Haarlem, nr. 3); spine gilt in compartments with red morocco title label lettered in gold, incl. the original ties (exactly the same binding as described by Coppens for his nr. 63).

Third much enlarged edition of the collected poetical work by Albius Tibullus (ca. 55 BC - ca. 19 BC). Tibullus was a Roman Poet about whom we know little, but who was considered by Quintilian, and later y many others, the best Roman poet. The work is edited by the famous German scholar and philologist Christian Gottlob Heyne (1729-1812), friend of Winckelmann and rector of the University of Göttingen. In 1855 he published the first edition of the poems of Tibullus. For this third edition he has collated 4 extra manuscripts in the library at Wolfenbüttel. The Heyne edition is considered to be one of the best 19th century editions of the Roman poet.Our copy served as a Prize book, presented to Jacob Rendorp a pupil of the Latin School at Haarlem on 22 August 1811. Complete with the extra leaf with the printed 'Ex-praemio': "Ingenuo, modesto ac bonae spei adolescenti (Jacobo Rendorp) ob egregia industriae in studiis specimina ... praemium hoc Litararium decrevere Quatuor-Viri Scholae Harlemo-Batavae constituendae; cum (e tertiae classis ordine inferiore ad superiorem) promoveretur", signed by the rector H. Waardenburg, together with the signatures of A. van den Ende, A.J. Arntzenius, Van Walre and P. de Gravere (for the greater part as the copy described by Coppens as his nr. 64). The centre piece has been in use during the years 1770 till far into the 19th century. In the standard work on, and bibliography of Dutch Prize Books - the phenomenon of prize giving and prize books at the Latin Schools in the Republic of the United Netherlands and the later Kingdom, from ca. 1585-1876 - this stamp is listed as the third used by the Latin School at Haarlem.

Gouger, a British merchant, witnessed at first hand the traumatic effects of the first Anglo-Burmese war on the Court and population of the Kingdom of Ava. He was jailed in Let Ma Yoon prison in Ava where he spent two years on death row, along with six others suspected of being spies, one of whom was Dr. Adoniram Judson, whose life and work is well documented elsewhere. The author offers a unique account of a crucial period in the history of Burma, which is valuable for historians, scholars, researchers and students alike. Having rendered his experiences into a book 35 years after the events, Gouger takes care to explain the local context, providing carefully selected and informative observations, with much thought for the Burmese themselves.

Barrow, John.
London, T. Cadell and W. Davies, 1807.
Two volumes. Quarto. Pp. xii, 608; 531. Plus portrait frontispiece, engraved by L. Schiavonetti after H. Edridge, rather foxed due to paper quality, affecting adjoining leaves. Hardcover, uniformly bound in contemporary half blonde calf extra, marbled boards, blind ruled sides, spine with raised bands decoratively tooled in gilt, blind embossed compartments, 2 dark-green gilt lettering-pieces in remaining compartments, "London 1807" gilt-stamped at foot of each spine, bit discoloured, extremities bit rubbed, chafed. A fine, wide-margined set. ~ First edition. Important work for its account of Macartney's embassy to China. Lust, 501; Cordier BS, 2391. ~ Provenance: from the private library of Stafford H. Northcote, with his attractive engraved armorial bookplate "Christi crux est mea lux" ("The cross of Christ is my light") to each volume. Sir Stafford Henry Northcote (1818-1887), 1st Earl of Iddesleigh, was Secretary of State for India (1867), Chancellor of the Exchequer (1874-1880), and British Foreign Secretary (1886). His(?) bookmark, silken red, hand embroidered with the word "Faith", is loosely inserted in volume II. ~ TO THIS IS ADDED: Loosely inserted in this copy are 2 engraved prints, apparently collected by Northcote. These are as follows: I. "View of the City of Batavia, with a Distant View of the Mountain Overhanging the Valley of the Upas, or Poison Tree. (From Authenticated Documents.)" Oblong, 200 x 260mm. Engraved by T. Dixon, after W. M. Craig, published by H. Fisher, London, 1826. II. "Sir James Brooke. (Raja of Sarawak.) From a Photograph taken expressly for the Work by Herbert Watkins." Portrait, 245 x 170mm. Stipple engraved by W. Edwards, published by James S. Virtue, London, undated. Both prints are in fine condition. A wonderful addition to a most attractive set with fine provenance.
