Roger Rea London, 1665
Hand-coloured double-page copperplate engraved map. English text on verso. Dimensions: 38 × 51 cm; Framed dimensions: 47 x 59cm A truly beautiful and outstanding map of Scotland, first produced by the famous English cartographer, John Speed (1542-1629) in 1610-11, in his atlas The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain. This later state is flanked by delightful portraits of common folk inserted at the time of the Commonwealth. There is an inset map of the Islands of Orkney in the upper right corner. The map has many decorative features; a pair of royal coats of arms, a Scottish mileage scale, galleons, sea monsters, an ornate compass rose and a scrolled title. The fascinating, historic map provides a wealth of detail, and is of tremendous general interest. This is a rare example, as most examples of the Rea edition printed in 1665 were destroyed in the Great Fire of London. Chubb xxiv; Skelton 11.

Persia, Turkey and other places, 1930s., 1930
Oblong small folio. 2 albums, the first containing 237 original photographs, the majority snapshots but some larger, mostly captioned by hand, also with a loosely inserted pencil sketch captioned "Our first home Abadan '42. Drawing room with Persian rugs", the second containing 52 original photographs, snapshots or larger, and a further 27 images in paper wallet (some duplicates). Contemp. rexine or papered boards. Fascinating collection of private photos showing the Abadan Oil refinery and life on the site in the 1930s. A series of 120 or so images is devoted to William Catchpole's time on the Abadan oilfields near Basrah and Kuwait. Catchpole became a chemist with the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company in 1933, and presumably was asked to visit the plant in this capacity. The photographs of this period show scenes on the voyages out (aboard the MV British Pride, an Anglo-Iranian tanker), life in Abadan (including the horse races), and the refinery itself. A group of 16 images show elements of the refinery, including the "cracking plant", "distillation units", and other features. Other photographs show the docks, and several show flares in the desert. The second album is undated and uncaptioned, though examination of one loosened photograph reveals a pencilled note to the verso ("Turkey between Harida Pasha and Ankara"). The photographs in the album show recreational and work-related images, including boating events, a pipeline, and three of an unidentified refinery. - William Marcus Catchpole was a grandson of Nathaniel Catchpole, founder of the brewing company Catchpole & Co. of Suffolk. The family and the business were based at Whitton, and some of the images from the first album show scenes and people at home. William Catchpole attended Radley College, and further images show the college and rowers on the river; some 100 images in the first album relate to the family's life in the UK. Artikel-Nr.: 45407.
London, W. Heinemann; New York, Scribner, 1903
Hardback. 1st Edition. Modern Boards. [xii], 323 pages ; 18 cm. A very clean copy of Evans-Gordons’ widely influential and highly controversial book. "Major Sir William Eden Evans Gordon (1857 – 1913) , was a British MP who previously served as a military diplomat in India After leaving the Army, Evans Gordon returned to Britain and in 1900 was elected as Conservative Party MP for Stepney on an anti-alien platform. As a result of the pogroms in Eastern Europe, an increasing number of Jews were arriving in Britain either to stay, or en route for America. Evans Gordon, as a 'restrictionist', was heavily and actively involved in the passing of the Aliens Act 1905, which sought to limit the number of people allowed to enter Britain Over a two-month period Evans-Gordon travelled extensively in Eastern Europe, finding out at first hand about the highly restrictive conditions imposed on Jews in the Pale of Settlement and in Rumania. His book (with map) about his fact-finding mission, ‘The Alien Immigrant’ (1903) is an even-handed account of his research The book was used in the evidence that he presented to the Aliens Commission in its inquiries. This eventually resulted in the Aliens Act 1905 which placed restrictions on Eastern European immigration, although discussion of the Bill in Parliament provoked considerable opposition. " (Wikipedia, 2016) Includes map and numerous illustrations from authors photographs of Jewish life in the Pale of Settlement and Eastern Europe including Pinsk, Cracow, Grodno, Dvinsk, Libau, Lodz and St Petersburg.

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. Artikel-Nr.: 61066.

But with the help of his allies and his beast magic, he emerges from the grave, deeply scarred in body and soul.

23,5 cm. Taschenbuch. Neuware - The Variety of Life can be read at many levels. Not least it is an extraordinary inventory - an illustrated summary of all the Earthly creatures that have ever lived. Whatever living thing you come across, from E coli to an oak tree or an elephant, The Variety of Life will show you what kind of creature it is, and how it relates to all others. Yet there are far too many creatures to present merely as a catalogue. The list of species already described is vast enough - nearly two million - but there could in reality be as many as 30 million different animals, plants, fungi and protists - and perhaps another 400 million different bacteria and archaea. In the 4,000 million years or so since life first began on Earth, there could have been several thousand billion different species. The only way to keep track of so many is to classify - placing similar creatures into categories, which nest within larger categories, and so on. As the centuries have passed, so it has become clear that the different groups are far more diverse than had ever been appreciated. Thus Linneus in the 18th century placed all living things in just two kingdoms, Animals and Plants. By the 1950s this had become five kingdoms - with fungi, protists, and bacteria hived off into their own separate groups. But leading biologists today acknowledge three vastly different domains, each divided into many kingdoms - so that animals and plants, spectacular though they are, are just a fragment of the whole. The Variety of Life explains the means by which systematists have attempted such a mammoth classification of so many various creatures - which in turn leads us into some of the most intriguing and knottiest areas of modern biology: evolutionary theory, molecular genetics, and the history of biological thought. Finally, however, The Variety of Life can simply be seen as a celebration. We should all share Miranda's pleasure in Shakespeare's Tempest - 'How many goodly creatures are there here!' - and feel, as she did, what a privilege it is to share this planet with such wonders. Their fate is in our hands; and first, we must begin to appreciate them. 704 pp. Englisch. Neu. Artikel-Nr.: 9780198604266.

Hardcover, with dustjacket, 211pp., 26.5x23cm., oblong, ills. in col. and b/w., new. ISBN 9076537011. Today, over twenty five years since manufacturing ceased there, the story of Citro'n's factory at Slough ( in its hey-day one of the largest car assembly plants in the United Kingdom ) is little appreciated by Citro'n enthusiasts in both Britain, France and the Netherlands alike - and virtually unknown by the wider motorbook readership around the world. This carefully researched and lavishly illustrated book, the first officially approved and sponsored account of Citro'n's right-hand-drive vehicles, should set the record straight! In examining the first seventy five years of Automobiles Citro'n's presence in Great Britain, Citro'n from A to X reviews the history of Citro'n Cars Ltd and Citro'n UK Ltd at Slough, recalling the vehicles built at the Slough Works between 1926 and 1966 and all those subsequently imported from France from 1966 onwards until the present day. For the benefit of readers unfamiliar with the marque, it begins with a short account of the founding of the Citro'n firm in France and discusses the earliest imports of Citro'n vehicles into the UK by the first concessionaires, Gaston Ltd. It then goes on to examine the complete span of activities that took place at the Slough factory between its opening in February 1926 and its closure in February 1966 - exactly forty years to the day - during which time it assembled vehicles to supply Citro'n's export markets throughout the entire British Commonwealth as well as the home market in Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Finally, it records the Citro'n models imported into the UK from Citro'n's contintental factories between 1966 and 1998, and gives a full account of the activities of Citro'n UK Ltd up to the present day. Pre-war, post-war and even wartime vehicle production is fully illustrated by over 200 archive pictures ( many previously unpublished ) together with contemporary advertising and publicity material, and also by a new series of full-colour pictures showing some of the very best surviving historic cars photographed by the leading motoring photographer Neill Bruce. The complete span of right-hand-drive vehicles featured and illustrated includes, amongst others, the conventional pre-war rear-wheel-drive models, the Light Fifteen and Six Cylinder Traction Avant, the 2CV and the Bijou, the DS and ID models and the Citro'n Maserati SM, the GS & GSA and the CX, together with the full range of Citro'n's recent and contemporary products. 0 g.

The Best English Law Dictionary of the Seventeenth and Early Eighteenth Centuries Cowell, John [1554-1611].

A Worke not Onely Profitable, but Necessary for Such as Desire Throughly to be Instructed in the Knowledge of Our Lawes, Statutes, and Other Antiquities. London: Printed for William Sheares, 1637.  pp. Text in parallel columns within black-ruled borders. Quarto (7-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Contemporary calf, blind rules to boards, rebacked in period style with raised bands and lettering piece, hinges mended, edges rouged. Moderate rubbing to extremities, a few negligible scuffs to boards, corners bumped. Woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces and decorated initials. Moderate toning to text, light staining to a few leaves. Early owner annotation to head of title page in small hand, another annotation in miniscule later hand to foot of another leaf, interior otherwise clean. A handsome copy. * Second edition, one of two issues from 1637. The Interpreter is considered to be the best law dictionary until Jacob's and it is still used by scholars of early English legal documents. Its publication provoked controversy. At a time when Parliament and crown were vying for power, the Commons disapproved of Cowell's royalist sympathies, which were evident in such definitions as "King," "Parliament," "Prerogative," "Recoveries" and "Subsidies." When a joint committee of Lords and Councilors reviewed the work, the ensuing controversy nearly halted the affairs of government. What is more, it contained a quotation that criticized Littleton's scholarship, which angered Sir Edward Coke. James I intervened in fear that his own fiscal interests would not be approved by Parliament. Encouraged by Coke, the king imprisoned Cowell, suppressed the book and ordered all copies burned by a public hangman on March 10, 1610. The present edition contains several changes that were made posthumously to placate the dictionary's enemies. Despite its stormy reception, The Interpreter remains a useful gloss to Coke's Littleton and other early le. Artikel-Nr.: 63772.
Holy Roman Empire, Vienna d.d. 8 March 1871. Full purple velvet, front cover decorated with gold embossed imperial coat-of-arms. Good condition. 37x28 cm. Silk endpapers, 8 pages on vellum. Printed decorative margins, text handwritten, with a hand painted coat-of-arms in colour and the original signature of Franz Joseph I. The imperial wax seal is attached by the gold cloth rope of the binding, in a disc shaped wooden case. The seal is cracked. This patent of nobility confirms the "handwritten letter of 10 June 1850", which conferred the status of Knight ("Ritter") to the recipient. Wasa Stoikovics served the Austrian Empire as soldier and became 'oberstleutenant". He deserved his nobility in the year 1849 at the defense of the "Festung Ofen" and was decorated with the Order of the Iron Crown third class, which also meant that he recieved the noble title of Ritter. 21 years after recieving this order, the nobility and his coat of arms are confirmed with this patent of nobility. The siege of Ofen took place from 4-21 May 1849. 5000 soldiers in Austrian service fought against 30.000 rebellious Hungarians who tried to take over the Festung during the War of Independence which followed the Hungarian revolution of 1848. The couragious but small army withstood the vigorous attacks for 17 days. Ofen is the German word for Buda, the western part of Budapest. Wasa Stoikovics is also mentioned to command the Theiszer Kron- und Gross-Kikindaer-Districts-Freiwilligen-Battalion in Italy in 1859. The order of the Iron Crown originally was a Napoleonic order, but was reestablished as an Austrian Order of the same name after the fall of the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy in 1815. H191.

Original cloth, xviii, 393 pp., 181 b/w ills., 3 col. plates, 3 beautiful coloured maps, very good condition. Wonderfully illustrated book on the travels of a rich American, mostly undertaken with his wife and mostly made in Tibet. Cutting was one of the very few Americans with official invitation to visit Lhasa, but also Kathmandu (where he stayed with the ambassador Eric Bailey), at that time perhaps even more difficult. But he even could visit Russian Turkestan, the Nagas in Assam (still difficult today) or the Nakhi in Southeastern Tibet, as well as the Tibetan Kingdom Muli - amazing and a very good read. Heavy book. First edition. Presendation copy "To Roy from Suydam" in other hand noted that it is actually Roy Chapman Andrews copy. Also with the bookplate and ownership inscription of noted collector Richard Tevier Daniel. Sprache: Englisch Gewicht in Gramm: 1300. Sehr gut. Artikel-Nr.: 16649.
