From the library of "Pfersch" signed by him on the title page above his armorial black stamp decorated with a horse and female figure above a shield.Johann Paul Kress' commentary on Samuel von Pufendorf's "De habitu religionis christianae ad vitam civilem".The German jurist Johann Paul Kress (1677-1741) was a professor at the University of Helmstedt. Kress authored several works covering a broad spectrum of the law, including criminal and constitutional law, and canon law. His "Constitutio Criminalis Carolina" was an important contribution to the subject of criminal law.The German jurist, political philosopher, economist and historian Baron Samuel von Pufendorf (1632-1694) authored important commentaries and revisions of the natural law theories of Thomas Hobbes and Hugo Grotius. A precursor of Rousseau and his social contract, Pudendorf promoted the idea that international law was not restricted to Christendom but should serve as a common bond between all nations. His "De habitu religionis christianae ad vitam civilem" (Of the Nature and Qualifications of Religion in Reference to Civil Society) traces the limits between ecclesiastical and civil power. Here Pufendorf pioneered the "collegial" theory of church government, the "Kollegialsystem" which the Lutheran theologian Christoph Mathkus Pfaff later developed and which then formed the basis of the relations between church and state in Germany and Prussia. Pufendorf's theory distinguishing between the legal power of the church and that of the state, while preserving the supremacy of the state, prepared the way for the principle of toleration which was put into practice in Prussia and later in Germany in the 18th and early 19th centuries. Preceding John Locke's 1689 publication of his "Letter Concerning Toleration" by two years, Pufendorf's "De habitu religionis." develops the doctrine of toleration within the framework of modern natural law.

Item Description: Circa [1972]. [1972], 1972. Book Condition: Very good. - sc - A beautiful and evocative portrait of the poet Hart Cane, author of "The Bridge", on heavy 25 inch high by 19-3/4 inch wide creamy white Fabriano paper. The 17-5/8 inch high by 14-7/8 inch wide image portrays Hart Crane peering out from the dark beneath a wooden plank (possibly the trestle of a bridge). A bent nail protrudes from a knot hole in the wood. Titled "Hart Crane" in pencil under the image at left, numbered "23/77" and signed in pencil by the artist Charles Wells at right. The inner margin is slightly darkened, likely from having been framed and there are small remnants of archival tape near the top corners of the verso. Near fine. Limited edition of 77 numbered etchings signed by the artist.Born in New York City in 1935, the printmaker and sculptor Charles Wells began his career as a stonecutter in Italy. A student and apprentice of Leonard Baskin, he subsequently had the opportunity to work alongside the great Italian carvers. Starting with carvings from stone, his work evolved over the course of his career to incorporate large-scale wood carvings, eventually growing into a synthesis of the two. It is said that his sculptures of angel-like figures appear to be emerging from their folded wings. His etchings are characterized by assymetrical faces and masterful lighting.

Item Description: Hudson River region of New York State, circa [1840]. [1840], 1840. Book Condition: Good. - sc - A 7 inch high by 13 inch wide finely executed finished pen, ink & graphite drawing on 10-1/4 inch high by 16 inch wide heavy creamy white art paper. The image illustrates a lake or pond surrounded by craggy mountains. Houses beneath the mountain rising up at left are shrouded by trees and sit near the water's bank. The prow of a boat can be discerned beneath a thatched roof held by posts rising up from the water. Discreetly signed "Livingston" diagonally at the bottom left of the image. Crudely matted with masking tape along the edges of the sheet into a 15 inch high by 21 inch wide light green mat. There is some scattered foxing, particularly along the edges of the drawing and some dampstaining to the bottom right corner of the sheet, which slightly touches on the drawing. Provenance: Purchased from an estate near Tivoli, New York. Given its provenance, we believe this finely executed work signed "Livingston" to be the work of the artist Montgomery Livingston, considered by some as belonging to the Hudson River School of Artists.The son of Margaret Maria Livingston and Robert L. Livingston, Montgomery Livingston (1816- 1855) was born at Arryl House, the Livingston estate in Clermont on the Hudson River. Sent off to study and gain culture in Europe, Montgomery set up in Geneva to focus on drawing, painting and lithography. Like many young American men of the period he depended on his father's financial assistance while abroad. Returning to New York following the Panic of 1837, he continued to paint and draw and his work was exhibited at the National Academy of Design. After his father's death Montgomery returned to Arryl House and by selling off pieces of the family's lands in the Catskills he was able to live a comfortable life as an artist. "Montgomery Livingston is considered by some critics to be a member of the Hudson River School of artists. Others do not include him." -- [information and quote from The Clermont State Historic Site]. Bookseller Inventory # 30923

Penned in Italian on a 7-1/8 inch high by 4- 1/2 inch wide sheet of paper, the letter is written and signed in the third person by the Marquise in the opening line of the letter, "La Contessa Guiccioli presenta."

There is evidence of some old tape repairs along the lower fold.This scarce work by Mary R. Darby Smith contains considerable material on Lord Byron. The Contessa Teresa Guiccioli, Marquise de Boissy, is generally considered to have been Byron's mistress while the poet was living in Ravenna, Italy at the time he wrote the first five cantos of Don Juan. She appears as "Countess G.", a minor character, in Alexandre Dumas' novel "The Count of Monte Cristo" and Lord Byron himself also used this abbreviation when referring to her in his journals.In this work the author Mary R. Darby Smith, a friend of the Countess, relates anecdotes and observations about De Boissy and her relationship with Byron, as well as her spiritualism after Byron's death. In the second half of the book, the author offers recollections of her friendship with the Count of Waldeck. Waldeck was an inveterate traveller and painter of historical scenes and several of his paintings are illustrated in the book.Two contemporary newspaper clippings tipped onto a sheet mounted on the rear pastedown refer to the Marquise de Boissy's own book "Recollections of Lord Byron".

Numbered "23/50" and titled "For Ernst Jandl" in blue ink by the artist at bottom left, this serigraph is signed "Morris" and dated "1967" at bottom right. There are several light creases and tiny tears to the edges and a heavier crease with short tears to the top right corner. This crease is reinforced with archival linen tape from the verso. There is some soiling to the left of the bottom edge and a tiny stain nearer the top. Remnants of a red label still adhere to the top edge of the verso. In overall good condition. Limited edition of 50 numbered prints, signed by Michael Morris.The British-born Canadian artist Michael Morris (b.1942), best known for his abstract paintings and prints, has also produced works in the related fields of photography, video, film, installation and performance art. His mother had studied at St.-Martins School of Art in London before moving to Canada when Morris was 4. A student of Jack Shadbolt, Roy Kiyooka and Don Jarvis at the University of Victoria and the Vancouver School of Art, he returned to London and completed his studies at the Slade School of Fine Art. Morris is "recognized by his contemporaries for shining the spotlight on Vancouver, he is perhaps best known by later generations for his collaborative artistic practice and his ability to smoothly shift between the roles of artist, curator, arts administrator and cultural player. In 1970, together with the artist Vincent Trasov, Morris founded Image Bank, a conceptual vehicle for mail art projects, which featured collaborations with Eric Metcalfe, Gary Lee Nova, Ray Johnson, General Idea, and Robert Filliou. Further to this, Morris, along with eight colleagues from various disciplines, founded and directed the Western Front Society." -- [Quoted from the National Gallery of Canada's biography of the artist].
