New Zealand. -- At top of cover: Bishop of Nelson (1866-91: Andrew Burn Suter), with his pencil markings. -- '.the sacred writings of the New Testament. .have suffered greatly. .by copying and recopying. .to suit the whims of persons biassed by opinions, or dogmas of their own. It was then that Erasmus, in 1516, and in 1550, Stephens, formed a Greek testament from this polluted original' (1) -- 'Sabbatarians say that the Sabbath existed and was establi shed by God Himself at the time of the creation, before the ceremonial law existed, and for this cause is in full force and binding through all the dispensations. We will show that this assertion goes for nothing, and has no scriptural basis whatever to stand upon.' (89) -- 'We have no objection against the dogma that Christ reigns in the heart of the believer. .but this. .is only a preparing, a schooling during this probatory life for the future Kingdom, and does by no means constitute Christ's reign over the nations of the earth. .We, in our revision, have distinguished between these two different reigns of Christ, the former by the government of God, or government of heaven, the latter, that is Christ's personal reign on earth, by the Kingdom of God, or the Kingdom of Heaven. .We who believe the scriptures do not find one single contradiction in it, and neither do we find the least difficulty as to the literal fulfilment of prophecy' (93-94) Omits John 8,1-11.

About this Item: Moskau, Typis Universitatis Mosquensis., 1810. Ca. 24,5 x 20 cm. 3 Blätter, XVIII Seiten, 424 Seiten, mit gestochener Titelvignette, 2 gefalteten Tabellen und 9 gefalteten Kupfertafeln. Brauner Lederband mit rotem Rücken, mit Rückentitel und Rückenvergoldung sowie goldgeprägter Deckelbordüre. Erste Ausgabe. Hirsch-Hübotter V, 19. Seltenes Werk zur Gynäkologie des in Moskau geborenen Wilhelm Michael Richter (1767-1822), der in Göttingen und Berlin studierte und ab 1790 Professor der Geburtshilfe an der Universität zu Moskau wurde. Er war als Arzt und Geburtshelfer sehr geschätzt und wurde auch an den kaiserlichen Hof gezogen; so zur Entbindung der Kaiserin Alexandra Feodorowna, der Gemahlin Nicolais am 17. April 1818, als der nachmalige Kaiser Alexander II. das Licht der Welt erblickte. Im vorliegendem Werk, "legt R. über seine Praxis und Amtsführung Rechenschaft ab und theilt besonders schätzbare Erfahrungen über die Wendung und den Gebrauch der Zange mit. Trotz dieser beiden, für ihre Zeit entschieden hervorragenden geburtshülflichen Bücher, trotzdem, daß ein Instrument Hysteromochlion zur Aufrichtung des schwangeren Uterus von R. erfunden worden ist, trotz der unzweifelhaften Verdienste um Geburtshülfe und Hebammenwesen in Rußland, dürfte Richter's Name den heutigen Geburtshelfern kaum bekannt sein - er gehört der Geschichte an" (ADB). Besitzvermerk auf Vorsatz, Monogramm-Stempel verso Titel, Tafeln teils mit hinterlegten Falzeinrissen, wenige Seiten auf bläulichem Papier gedruckt, Rückenkanten hinterlegt, Ecken leicht bestoßen.

With each stage of division the strips become progressively thinner (a strip of the 12th division is 0,08 mm). Endless more divisions are possible, but they would become visible only by enlargement. Each strip is then mirrored and repeated which results in patterns. The number of repetitions increases with each stage of division in order to make patterns of consistent size.

About this Item: Hennings, Erfurt, 1797. Hardcover. Condition: Befriedigend. Erste Ausgabe. Titelblatt, 2 Blatt, VI, 148, 212 S. Kleinformatiger Halblederband der Zeit mit dekorativer ornamentaler Goldprägung. Auf dem Vorsatzpapier mit montiertem kleinem eigenhändigen Briefchen, datiert Stuttgard 25. Jun. 1819 (1 Seite, 11 Zeilen Text), mit eigenhändiger Unterschrift Jean Pauls. An "Frau Legazionsräthin von Matthison: Hier send ich Ihnen Ihr Paquet zurück, aber nicht mit Vergnügen, da mir das Schiksal nicht einmal die Freude auch des kleinen Dienstes für sie vergönnt. [?] Kuefstein schrieb mir früh die Reise ab, weil die Herzogin selber in die Stadt eine macht zur Vorbereitung der großen. Mit Achtung u. Liebe Ihr JeanPaulFr. Richter." Adressatin ist wohl Luise von Matthison (geb. Schoch), die zweite Frau des Dichters Friedrich von Matthison, der bis 1825 als Legationsrat im Dienste Herzog Friedrichs II. von Württemberg stand. Die Schrift enthält das hochgestimmte Gespräch über die Unsterblichkeit, ergänzt um einen satirischen Anhang, in dem Jean Paul darauf verfiel, einen Bildkommentar zu den einfachen Holzschnitten des Bayreuther Katechismus in der Art Lichtenbergs zu schreiben. Dieses Exemplar hat etwas stärkere Gebrauchsspuren, insbesondere ist der Einband deutlich verzogen, die Deckel haben Knickspuren und die Seiten unten im Bund einen schwachen kleinen Wasserrand außerhalb des Textes. Trotz dieser Gebrauchsspuren handelt es sich um ein insgesamt noch ordentliches, weitgehend fleckenfreies und durch den Brief getrüffeltes Exemplar. Dritter der von Berend genannten 3 Paralleldrucke der Ersten Ausgabe. Widmung des Verfassers. Seller Inventory # 000142

About this Item: Francis C. Richter, Philadelphia, 1914. Condition: Very Good. First edition. 306pp., illustrated from photographs. A couple of small stains on the front fly, light discoloration from dampness on both boards, slight smudging in text, very good, internally near fine. A nice association copy of this classic baseball text Inscribed by Richter: "To Edward Martin Schoenborn, my friend and fellow lover of Base Ball with the compliments of the Author, Francis C. Richter. Philada., Pa. March 23, 1914." Schoenborn, who owned a successful cigar business, was the president of the Columbus (Ohio) Senators in the American Association. He is mentioned in the section "Leaders of Baseball" on page 285. In 1901 when it was impossible to raise money to keep a baseball team in Columbus, Schoenborn put his money behind the Columbus Senators, becoming president of the team in 1909. In 1923, Schoenborn was part of the group that purchased the Boston Red Sox.As a writer, Richter was an influent in the early development of the game. Beginning with the Philadelphia Day in 1872, then the Sunday World and Public Ledger, he was the first to set up a separate sports department for any newspaper. Richter was instrumental in the formation of the original American Association in 1882 and helped to place the Philadelphia Athletics in it. The next year he helped to organize the Phillies in the National League and started Sporting Life, a weekly newspaper, which became a force in baseball. In 1907 he was offered the presidency of the National League but turned it down. He edited the Reach Guide from its inception in 1901 to the 1926 volume, which he completed days before his death. A nice association copy. Seller Inventory # 412985

In fact, all three painters have produced work for Lincoln Center as part of the List Poster and Print program, which was established in 1962 to bring world-class contemporary poster art to the new performing arts center.In the almost 45-year history of the program, there have been only two photography commissions: a 1979 Richard Avedon poster paying tribute to the Film Society of Lincoln Center, and now ?? at a moment when all eyes are on the Metropolitan Opera, about to open its first season under the new general manager, Peter Gelb ?? a photograph taken backstage at the Met by the Cuban-born photographer Abelardo Morell. On Monday evening, the night of the Met's opening gala, an exhibition of Mr. Morrell's backstage photography will open at the Gallery at Lincoln Center, which is on the lower level concourse of the Opera House. (The Met, incidentally, recently started its own visual arts gallery, called the Arnold and Marie Schwartz Gallery Met, located in the lobby of the Opera House.)The director of visual arts at Lincoln Center, Tom Lollar, said he hopes that opera patrons, on their way upstairs from the parking garage, will be drawn by Mr. Morrell's largescale photographs of the Opera House and will discover the gallery, which he acknowledges is, in its current location, hard to find. Part of Lincoln Center's redevelopment plans involves moving it to a more prominent, above-ground space.In 1962, Albert and Vera List made a $1 million gift both to endow the poster and print program and to commission public artworks, like the Jasper Johns painting in the New York State Theater and the Henry Moore sculpture that emerges from the reflecting pool.The Lists had admired the posters designed by artists for institutions like the Paris Opera, and they wanted Lincoln Center to be graced with as distinguished and distinctive graphic art as its European counterparts, Mr. Lollar said.The first director of the poster program was Delmar Hendricks, who was also the booking manager for Avery Fisher and Alice Tully Halls. Mr. Lollar took over from him in 1988.Mr. Lollar said that, in contrast to the public artworks, most of which have been in place for decades, the List program has kept Lincoln Center's collection current. Mr. Lollar commissions four or five artists a year to design posters, most of which are linked to events or venues, like the Mostly Mozart Festival, Jazz at Lincoln Center, or an anniversary. The prints appear in unusually numbered editions, like 54, 72, or 108, because Mrs. List was interested in numerology and wanted the edition numbers to add up to nine.The artist designs the entire poster, including the typeface. (There is no writing on the signed prints, only the posters.) Sometimes the art makes specific visual references to the program being advertised ? a Donald Baechler poster for Mostly Mozart, for example, includes images of Mozart ? but in many posters, the connection between text and image is looser. A 2005 Richard Artschwager poster for the Lincoln Center Festival shows an image of conjoined figures (the title of the print is "Liebespaar," or lovers) that seem to be dancing ? thus conveying the dynamism of the festival's offerings, which include dance.Mr. Seller Inventory # ig

Erste Ausgabe, nur der 6. Band in zweiter Auflage von 1802! Dieser Klassiker der chirurgischen Literatur erschien über einen Zeitraum von 22 Jahren und wird nur noch selten in der ersten original Dietrich'schen Göttinger Ausgabe angeboten. Neben Heister gehörte August Gottlieb Richter (1742-1812) zu den Begründern der wissenschaftlichen Chirurgie in Deutschland. Als medizinischer Schriftsteller war er unerreicht. Richter vermittelt seinen zum Teil noch im Feldscherergeist befangenen Kollegen die großen ausländischen Fortschritte der Chirurgie. Er schrieb ein reines Deutsch, ohne allen gelehrten Putz. Noch ein Menschenalter später schrieb Dieffenbach in seinem Vorwort zur Operativen Chirurgie: "So ein Buch möchte ich, das auch das Meinige wäre." Das Werk glieder sich in alter Tradition von Kopf bis Fuß wie folgt: 1.Bd.: Von den allgemeinen Entzündungskrankheiten: Von den äußerlichen ächten Entzündungen; Von dem Eytergeschwüre; Von dem kalten Brande; Von der Rose; Von den Verbrennungen; Von den Erfrierungen; Von dem Blutgeschär; Von dem Karfunkel; Von den Hieb- Schnitt und Stichwunden; Von den Mitteln zur geschwinden Vereinigung der Wunden; Von den Schußwunden; Von den Quetschungen; Von den Blutungen der Wunden; Von den Nervenzufällen der Wunden; Vom Scirrhus und Krebse; Von den Balggeschwülsten; Von dem Ueberbeine; Von der Pulsadergeschwulst; Von den Blutaderknoten; Von den Polypen; Von den Warzen; Von den Hühneraugen; Von der Wassergeschwulst; Von der Windgeschwulst; Von den Fleischgeschwüren; Von den Fisteln; Von dem Beinfraße; Von den künstlichen Geschwüren. 2.Bd.: Von den Krankheiten des Kopfs: Von den Kopfwunden; Von dem Hirnbruche; Von der Kopfwassersucht; Von dem gespaltenen Rückgrade; Von den Wunden des Angesichts; Von der Speichelfistel, und einigen anderen Zufällen an den Backen; Von der Haasenscharte; Von dem Krebse, und einigen anderen Zufällen an den Lippen; Von den Krankheiten der Oberkinnbackenhöhlen; Von den Krankheiten der Stirnhöhlen; Von der Thränenfistel; Von den Entzündungen und den Wunden der Augenlieder; Von den zusammengewachsenen Augenlidern; Von der Umkehrung der Augenlider; Von der Trichiasis; Von der Ptosis; Von dem Hasenauge; Von den Geschwülsten der Augenlider. 3.Bd.: "Von den Krankheiten der Augen" gliedert sich in folgende Kapitel: "Von der Augenentzündung; Von dem Eyterauge; Von den künstlichen Augen; Von den undurchsichtigen Flecken der Hornhaut; Von dem Staphylom; Von dem graue Staare; Von dem Vorfalle der Regenbogenhaut; Von der verschloßenen Pupille; Von der widernatürlichen Erweiterung der Pupille; Von der Augenwassersucht; Von dem Vorfalle des Augapfels; Von der Ausrottung des Augapfels; Vom schwarzen Staare; Von dem Doppelsehen; Von der Halbsichtigkeit; Von der Tag- und Nachtblindheit; Von der Kurzsichtigkeit und Weitsichtigkeit; Von den Flecken und Funken vor den Augen; Von verschiedenen Gattungen des fehlerhaften Gesichts." 4.Bd.: Von den Krankheiten des Mundes: Von der Fröschleingeschwulst; Von den Fehlern des Zungenbändchens; Von den Krankheiten der Zunge; Von den Krankheiten der Mandeln; Von den Krankheiten des Gaumens; Von den Krankheiten des Zahnfleisches; Von den Krankheiten der Zähne.

About this Item: Francis C. Richter, Philadelphia, 1914. Condition: Near Fine. First edition. 306 pp., copiously illustrated after photographs. Slight soiling to the boards, and a little edgewear, still a near fine copy of a very important baseball book. As a writer and associate of baseball officials, Richter was an influential force in the early development of the game. Beginning with the Philadelphia Day in 1872, then the Sunday World and Public Ledger, he was the first to set up a Sports Department for any newspaper. Richter helped form the original American Association in 1882 and to place the Philadelphia Athletics in it. The next year he helped organize the Phillies in the National League. In 1883, he started Sporting Life, a weekly newspaper, which became a great force in baseball. In 1907, he was offered the presidency of the National League, but turned it down. He edited the Reach Guide from its inception in 1901 to the 1926 volume, which he completed days before his death. A superior copy of a book usually found well worn. Seller Inventory # 77770

About this Item: Berlin: Verlag Hermann Reckendorf G.m.b.H., 1929. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Berlin: Verlag Hermann Reckendorf G.m.b.H. 1929. First Edition. An important key book in Weimar-era film aesthetics by Hans Richter (1888-1976), a critical German avant-garde artist who went back and forth between the media of film, painting and graphic art. He created a number of important silent experimental films in the 1920s (and he always claimed that his 1921 Rhythmus 21 was the first experimental film ever made. An early and highly influential study of experimental film published to coincide with the 1929 Film und Foto exhibition in Stuttgart. Illustrated with numerous photographs, film stills and film strips, with photographic reproductions by many of the important avant-garde artists of the era (including Man Ray, Duchamp, Leger and Richter himself). A fascinating book from several perspectives. Not only one of the first books to attempt to characterize early avant-garde filmmaking, but a lushly produced volume, with hundreds of stills from various early experimental films, speaking not only to concept but also to technique and method. The stills selected by Richter include not only strips and stills of the films discussed, but also rare images of candid on-set images of the filmmakers at work. Small quarto, 125 pp. Some starting, but contents are crisp, overall NEAR FINE in VERY GOOD dust jacket, with some chips and tears. Seller Inventory # wf2717
