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.

WILLKIE, Wendell L..
New York 1943, Simon. Black cloth, very good, end paper maps 206 p., 14 x 21 cm., very good copy, 3rd. printing, worn dj. in mylar protector, with clipping from Lexington Herald. * * * 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. 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. * Willkie met with General Claire L. Chennault, commander of the A.V.G. [American Volunteer Group] 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. * On July 23, 1941, Willkie 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 [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. Chennault: WAY OF A FIGHTER. Several Willkie references and a letter to Willkie by Chennault. * Color scans can be sent by email.

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.

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.

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.

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.

CHARDIN, Sir John.
Le Normant, Paris, 1811.
With 85 engravings on 64 sheets (9 folding), including portrait of Chardin, 18 sheets with double-illustrations and 1 sheet with 4, with additional large folding map of Asia with outline coloured by hand by P. Lapie, 1810, engraved by Blondeau, all protected with original tissue guards. Recent half-calf over marbled boards. Attractive, fresh example of the atlas, uncut, from the most desirable edition enhanced with new and larger plates. Printed on thick paper and extra-illustrated with a large hand-coloured map of the whole region. 'Chardin was a Huguenot who was forced to emigrate to England. He was knighted by Charles II and on his death was buried in Westminster Abbey. His first visit to the East was made in 1665, at the age of twenty-two, when he both gratified a love of travelling and carried on his trade as a dealer in jewels. His more important voyage was made in 1671. His route differed from that usually taken by travellers to the East Indies in that he proceeded by way of the Black Sea and the countries bordering thereon' (Cox I p 249-250). 'Chardin set out for Persia for a second time in August 1671, but on this occasion diverted through Smyrna and Constantinople, and took the Black Sea Route to Caucasia, Mingrelia and Georgia, finally arriving at Esfahan in June 1673. In Georgia he heard of a race of warlike women, the Amazons, who had at some time in the recent past invaded a kingdom to the northwest. He remained in Persia for four years, as he says 'chiefly following the court in its removals, but also making some particular journeys.., as well as studying the language.' He apparently knew Esfahan better than Paris, and visited nearly every part of the country. His account of the Persian court and his business transactions with the shah are of considerable interest. In 1677 he proceeded to India, afterwards returning to France by way of the Cape of Good Hope' (Howgego C102); His second and more notable voyage to Persia, is important because it is in the account of this voyage that he describes life in late Safavid Persia' (Ghani p. 71). Includes, among others, lovely views of Tbilisi (Tiflis), Erevan, Ispahan, Persepolis as well as Georgian and Persian costumes, views of lavish palace rooms and the Coronation of Suleyman.

's-Grav., Wed. J. Allart en Comp., 1823.
Orig. boards. With allegorical illustration on engraved title by P. Velyn, pictorial alphabet with 24 finely designed views, portraits and historical scenes on 6 full-page engraved plates, and at the end a folding engraved map of The Netherlands, incl. Luxemburg, beautifully coloured by hand. XXXVI, 311, (1) pp.

Dutch history school book for children, published in the form of an A B C Book, with all illustrations arranged by the letters of the alphabet. Still, although usually listed under A B C books, the present book is far from being a first reading or spelling book, but presents a thorough Dutch history school book, with all subjects arranged alphabetically, like in a dictionary. In the preliminaries an index is also given according to subjects, so the book can also be used in a more coherent manner. The book is composed in this way to join the tradition of both the 'Vaderlandsch A B Boek' by the Patriot Swildens, and the 'Stadhouderlyk A B Boek' by the Orangists from the 1780's. The present historical school book was dedicated to the sons of the new Dutch King, Willem I, and it was intended to strengthen in youth the new national feeling of the justly founded Dutch Kingdom. The book is very beautifully illustrated with four small scenes on each plate, carefully designed and finely executed, showing views of Dutch cities, harbours, mills, overseas colonies, the School for Navigation at Amsterdam, the Hall of the Educational Society 'Tot Nut van 't Algemeen', a printing office, fishing, peat digging, etc., also including portraits of Erasmus, Michiel de Ruyter, the Princes of Orange, etc., and mostly with an extra scene on a second level as well, showing landscapes, gardens, farming, historical scenes and views, etc.

IPPEL, J.W.L.F.
Vierde verbeterde druk. Amsterdam, Schalekamp en Van de Grampel, 1828.
Sm. 8vo. Orig. boards. With 6 (of 7) large folding engraved maps by D. Veelwaard Jr., all nicely coloured by hand. 84 pp.

Bilingual school book in French and Dutch for use in the geography lessons at Dutch and Belgian primary schools, published at the time that The Netherlands and Belgium were still united into one kingdom. The text is printed parallel in two columns in the two languages, and is entirely composed like a cathechism in questions and answers for the children to learn by heart. Saalmink lists the book as first published anonymously in 1817, and as corrected by J.W.L.F. Ippel in the second edition of 1819, and again in the third edition of 1825, all editions published by Schalekamp & Van de Grampel. Present here are a map of the world in two hemispheres, with a size of ca. 40 x 20 cm., and including the routes of the latest voyages. Further a large folding map of The Netherlands is present, especially drawn for the second edition of the book in 1822 (as stated in the preface!) by G. Witlage, and large folding maps of Asia, Africa, North-America, and South-America. All maps were engraved by Daniel Veelwaard the Younger (1796-1868). The last lesson is devoted to questions and answers about Australia, but no map of Australia is called for.
Good copy of a rare school book.- (Spine sl. dam.; sl. traces of use, with the map of The Netherlands rather worn, and torn along folds; clean tear in the map of Africa; map of Europa lacking).
This edition unrecorded; cf. Saalmink p. 567 (arranged under "Elements"; no copy seen of the first ed. of 1817, and listing one copy each of the 2nd and 3rd ed. of 1819 and 1825, both in the University Library Amsterdam).

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)

Hildesheim: Gerstenberg 2012.
XL, 154 S. 4° Ln. *neuwertig*.

The present monograph consists of the expanded and updated version of my doctoral dissertation submitted to the University of Chicago in 2005. The original research initiative was aimed at understanding the nature and operations of a prominent economic entity from Egypt's Old Kingdom called the pr ßn . It became evident to me, however, even prior to undertaking the research proper, that the effectiveness of such a study would be diminished substantially had I opted to analyze that particular institution independently, with little or noregard for the larger socio-economic conditions within which it operated. Though mindful of the fact that comprehensiveness in the investigation of a topic as broad as economy remains elusive, this work nonetheless endeavors to examine multiple components of early Egypt in order to offer as complete an economic assessment of the Old Kingdom as the evidence permits. The research has not been restricted to economic matters in their narrowest sense, but accounted for cultural traits, as well as aspects of kingship that had an impact on the economic reality of ancient Egypt.Jac. Janssen has already noted over thirty years ago that the study of the economic history of ancient Egypt is "in its infancy". Much progress has since been achieved in that area, although research into the early phases of the Egyptian economy remains at a deficit when measured against the advances with respect to other periods. Additionally, inquiry into the socio-economic attributes of early Egypt has been severely undermined by the restrictive parameters imposed upon it, particularly in terms of chronology and scope. It may be argued that this approach is conditioned by one of the central problems facing the study of theeconomy and society of the Old Kingdom, namely the presumed paucity of the research material. Though such an estimation may be accurate to a certain extent, an adequate amount of data, some of which have been previously overlooked or deemed irrelevant for socio-economic investigation, remains nonetheless accessible for devising coherent proposals. Furthermore, the proper understanding of several aspects of the Old Kingdom must inevitably take into account periods antedating it, which, over a span of close to half amillennium, have left some textual records that cannot be ignored. Therefore, the artificial chronological boundaries long established between the Early Dynastic and the Old Kingdom have been dismantled for the purposes of the present study. A similar process was adopted for periods beyond the Old Kingdom, as one cannot lose sight of the evidence offered bysources from the Late, Ptolemaic, and Roman eras, which very often supply much needed confirmation for certain proposals, especially when considering the concluding stages in the evolution of a given feature.The importance of positioning the study and the development of various institutions involved in Old Kingdom economy within the greater backdrop of society and culture has occasionally eluded previous scholarship. The consequence has been that the examination of those institutions has been limited to the immediate textual context in which they are attested. Though such a methodology remains indispensable and will be used in the present work, it should not be preferred to the detriment of understanding the nature of thoseestablishments within the overall socio-economic circumstances of the Early Dynastic and the Old Kingdom, because their development mirrored that of other contemporaneous institutions (temples and agricultural domains, for instance), and also that of certain facets of Egyptian social organization and administration. This book is structured along five chapters, with a sixth serving as a recap, each addressing a different aspect of Old Kingdom economy. Individual divisions represent selfcontained units incorporating their own introduction and conclusions, as well as an outline and discussion of the sources and prior scholarship on the topic, with an analytical perspective preferred over a descriptive one. This approach enables a more focusedexamination of the subject at hand and allows a particular section to be consulted either independently, or as part of the totality of the work.More than a few individuals over the years have contributed positively and in a variety of ways to this undertaking, from the inception of the original idea to the development of the successive stages that culminated in the current monograph. I would hereby like to acknowledge my academic colleagues currently or formerly at the University of Chicago, principally Drs. Peter F. Dorman, Gregory Marouard, Nadine Moeller, Janet H. Johnson, W. Raymond Johnson, and Robert K. Ritner, for their friendship and support onmultiple levels. I also wish to thank Dr. Bettina Schmitz, editor of the Hildesheimer Ägyptologische Beiträge, for agreeing to publish my manuscript as part of that series. The ultimate stage of the preparation of this work for publication was completed while I was in residence at the Centre for Canon and Identity Formation (CIF) at the University of Copenhagen. My gratitude extends to Dr. Kim Ryholt, the director of CIF, as well as to allmy colleagues and students in Egyptology in Copenhagen for providing me with a welcoming and dynamic academic environment during my stay. But most of all I could always count on my family's unwavering encouragement with respect to all my choices, and I thank them deeply for enabling me to pursue the paths that I favored. I hope their patience in waiting for this book will be well rewarded.

Of primary importance for the light it throws on conditions in Palestine and the near east in the early years after the Moslem conquest, this narrative of Arculf's journey has the unusual interest too of simultaneously bringing into focus the widely separated Celtic, Byzantine, and Moslem worlds at the very dawn of the Middle Ages. Arculf appears to have been a Merovingian Gaul. His travels covered Moslem and Byzantine territories, and his experiences were recorded by an Irishman in the Celtic monastery of Iona. Before entering into particular study of this record, it will be helpful to dwell momentarily on the political dispositions throughout these various areas during the second half of the seventh century A.D., especially during the decade 670-80. Of the three British kingdoms, that of Northumbria was in the ascendant, and was during all this period considerably exposed to Celtic influence from the Columban monks. The reigns of Ecgfrith (671-85) and Aldfrith (685-705) concern us. Merovingian Gaul was in a period of decline. The era of the rois faineants extended from 639 to 751, when the three kingdoms of Neu-stria, Austrasia, and Burgundy were controlled rather indifferently by the Mayors of the Palace. The Roman Italy of Justinian had long been very effectively broken up by the turbulent Lombard kingdom. The Visigothic kingdom of Spain was destined to fall easily to the Moslems early in the eighth century. Sicily, though the Moslems seem to have sent an attacking fleet as early as 664, remained all the time under Byzantine control. ... (Einleitung)

Library stickers and stamps on the spine and on the FEP. Occupational Health: A Practical Guide for Managers examines the reasons why employers should address the health of their workforce. It explores the implication that health issues have for bottom line performance and offers guidelines for developing an effective occupational health policy and associated procedures. The authors are both senior professionals in the field and have a wealth of industrial experience to draw on. They have used their first-hand knowledge to produce a practical introduction to occupatioal health which includes the latest legislative requirements and current recommended practice. Material is presented in an easy-to-read, non-technical format, making the book particularly useful to the reader with no previous knowledge of the field. Short executive summaries at the beginning of each chapter highlight key action points for quick reference, while a more extensive reference section at the end of the book signposts the way to detailed information on specific issues. The book is in four parts. Part one provides an introduction to the history and scope of occupational health, discusses contemporary practice and looks at the legal and organizational factors involved. Part two examines the some of the most common issues in occupational health, including stress management, anti-smoking policies and health promotion. Specific considerations surrounding the employment of women and people with disabilities are dealt within part three. The final part offers a practical approach to two key aspects of health and safety legislation: regulations relating to Display Screen Equipment and the Manual Handling of Loads. Occupational Health: A Practical Guide for Managers is essential reading for occupational health practitioners and all professionals involved in making and implementing health and safety policy. It is also an extremely useful resource for students seeking to gain an understanding of health issues in the workplace No Dust Jacket paperback Government Reference Library

8vo. Letterpress title page and 40 engr. plates by James and Henry Roberts, engr. index leaf, and publisher's 4-page catalogue (with woodcut image of cocks fighting). Stitched in wrappers.

Fine series of plates, each depicting a famous horse with his rider or stable-hand, and recording its pedigree, qualities and racing record, together with the owner's name. The final plate shows the most famous of all, the Godolphin Arabian (here called the "Bay Arabian, the property of the Right Hon.ble the Earl of Godolphin"), foaled in Yemen around 1724: "This extraordinary horse became a private stallion soon after his arrival in this kingdom, and got a greater number of fine horses of just temper with superior speed than any Arab ever did. He was the Sire of Lath, Dismal, Cade, Bajazet, Babraham, Phenix, Dormouse, Regulus, Skewball, Sultan, Blanck, Slugg, Noble, Tarquin, Blossom, the Godolphin Gelding, Shepherdess, Amelia, and many others besides stallions and brood mares, all in the highest esteem; he dies at Hogmagogg Hills, Dec. 1753, in the 29th year of his age". - Among the other horses are Lath, the Godolphin Arabian's offspring by Roxana; Basto (son of the Byerly Turk); Old Scar, whose ancestry included the Oglethorpe Arabian and Darcy's Yellow Turk, etc. The horses pictured all ran between 1708 and 1755. The first edition was published in about 1760, and this Barker edition some forty years later. This copy has no watermarks, but the books listed in J. Barker's catalogue of publications were mostly published in the 1790s. - Spine rubbed and bumped; slight wear to edges and corners. An excellent copy with two small tears imperceptibly restored. Of the utmost rarity: the only copy recorded at auction during the last decades is the Gloucester copy (Christie's, Jan. 27, 2006, lot 592). - Huth, p. 38. Cf. Podeschi 54.

Roberts, James.
London, printed for R. & R. Baldwin, c. 1760.

Fine series of plates, each depicting a famous horse with his rider or stable-hand, and recording its pedigree, qualities and racing record, together with the owner's name. The final plate shows the most famous of all, the Godolphin Arabian (here called the "Bay Arabian, the property of the Right Hon.ble the Earl of Godolphin"), foaled in Yemen around 1724: "This extraordinary horse became a private stallion soon after his arrival in this kingdom, and got a greater number of fine horses of just temper with superior speed than any Arab ever did.

The first edition was published in about 1760. Rare, only two copies recorded in ABPC/AE Online. ESTC records two issues, one published and sold by Henry Roberts, the other printed for R. and R. Baldwin (as here): just one location is given for the first issue (Winterthur), and one for the second (BL). Huth records the work under a variant title, and also notes an 1820 edition. - Plate 12 shorter at margins, some spotting and browning, heavier at margins. A most handsome copy. - Huth 38.

CLARK, I[ohn]
London: Smith, Elder & Co., 1824.
Hand-coloured aquatint, 'drawn on the spot by I. Clark'. Image size (including text): 14 3/4 x 21 1/2 inches. Sheet size: 18 3/4 x 24 3/4 inches. An historically important topographical view of Glasgow in Scotland, from John Clark's 'Views in Scotland'. There is some debate as to who executed this stunning print. There is no reference which identifies the author of this view, but there is some indication that it is the work of the celebrated painter John Heaviside Clark (1770-1863). Born in Scotland, Clark exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy between 1801 and 1832. He was primarily a landscape and marine painter, but he also produced a number of fine aquatints, which exhibit his exceptional talents as an engraver. Known as "Waterloo Clark" for his early sketches of the battle of Waterloo, he was a painter of some repute across the British Isles, and his beautiful views remain some of the most attractive images of the English countryside. A contemporary gazetteer notes that the city was 'the manufacturing and commercial metropolis of Scotland, and the third city of the United Kingdom in point of population, and perhaps of wealth also.' (Fullarton [publisher's] A Gazetteer of the World 1856, III, p.615). According to the same source the population in 1821 was 147,043, the present view taken at about that time shows a city that is increasingly industrialised: factory chimneys are beginning to cast a pall of smoke over the city, but it has not yet come to completely overrun the landscape in which it is set. The population was to more than double in the next 20 years with the census of 1851 recording a population of 346,984. Cf. Abbey Scenery 489; cf. Prideaux p.331; Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs, vol 3, p. 676
