About this Item: [Loanhead]: privately printed for the Rivendale Press (by Alan Anderson at the Tragara Press), 1996. Soft cover. Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. Purple wrappers, printed paper label. Edition limited to 75 numbered copies. "Shelley's Centenary", a poem commemorating the centenary of Percy Bysshe Shelley's birth on 4 August 1792, was first printed in The Spectator for 30 July 1892, and then issued by T.J. Wise in an edition of 25 copies, "printed for private distribution" - though Steven Halliwell questions the strict limitation, having tracked down "rather a large number" (he lists 24). "Lachrymae Musarum", a poem written after the death of Alfred Tennyson on 6 October, was commissioned by The Illustrated London News and printed there on 15 October, before being issued by Wise in an edition (again "printed for private distribution"), this time of 100 copies. William Watson, who turned 34 on 2 August 1892, had been pursuing a career as a critic. Halliwell, who contributes efficient background and bibliographical information on both pamphlets (as well as their texts), suggests, "It is interesting to note that with the publication of these two privately printed books began a change in Watson's fortunes and from then on he concentrated on his poetry . . ." Halliwell B83. Seller Inventory # TR100374

About this Item: veneunt autem a Thoma Caslon, Bibliopolâ ., Londini, Typis Jacobi Harrison, 1765. First edition, dedicated to Thomas Hayward, Warden of New College, Oxford. An English translation, Elegiac Tears, or Plaintive Epistles, by George Itchener, was published at Chelmsford in 1766.'These Elegiac Epistles, written by Mr. Cotton, Vicar of Good Easter in Essex, on the death of his wife, are replete with the pure and genuine spirit of the classic muse; and, indeed, we have hardly ever seen any thing of the kind more ingenious. There is a delicacy, a tenderness and a chastity in the expression, the sentiments are just and interesting, and the numbers happily modulated . These epistles are three in number, and are addressed to different friends' (Monthly Review).There is a long list of subscribers. Many of them are clergymen, but it is nice to see two future poet laureates among them: Thomas Warton (2 copies) and his successor Henry James Pye, then aged 20 and styled 'Gentleman Commoner of Magdalen College, Oxford'. 4to (250 × 208 mm) in half-sheets, pp. [18], 33, [1]; light offsetting; disbound.

Opuscula quae ad Grammaticam spectant, omnia, in: Drusius, Johannes:

About this Item: Franekerae, Aegidius Radaeus, 1609. 4 unn. Bll., 152; 55; 4 unn. Bll.; 95 S. Einband berieben, bestoßen und mit etwas Verlust des Überzugpapiers. Innen immer wieder etwas fleckig. Insgesamt guter Zustand. "Johannes van den Driesche [or Drusius] (28 June 1550 – February 1616) was a Flemish Protestant divine, distinguished specially as an Orientalist, Christian Hebraist and exegete. He was born at Oudenarde, in Flanders. Intended for the church, he studied Greek and Latin at Ghent, and philosophy at Leuven; but his father having been outlawed for his religion, and deprived of his estate, retired to England, where the son followed him in 1567. He found a teacher of Hebrew in Antoine Rodolphe Chevallier, with whom he resided for some time at Cambridge. In 1572 he became professor of Oriental languages at Oxford. Upon the pacification of Ghent (1576) he returned with his father to their own country, and was appointed professor of Oriental languages at the University of Leiden in the following year. In 1585 he removed to Friesland, and was admitted professor of Hebrew in the university of Franeker, an office which he discharged with great honour till his death. He acquired a reputation as a professor, and his class was frequented by students from all the Protestant countries in Europe. He was learned in Hebrew and in Jewish antiquities; and in 1600 the states-general employed him, at a salary of 400 florins a year, to write notes on the difficult passages in the Old Testament; but this work was not published until after his death. As the friend of Jacobus Arminius, he was charged by the Contra-Remonstrant party with unfairness in the execution of the task, and the last sixteen years of his life were therefore marred by controversy. He carried on an extensive correspondence with the learned in different countries; for, besides letters in Hebrew, Greek and other languages, there were found amongst his papers upwards of 2000 written in Latin. He had a son, John, who died in England at the age of twenty-one, and was accounted a prodigy of learning. He had mastered Hebrew at the age of nine, and Scaliger said that he was a better Hebrew scholar than his father. He wrote a large number of letters in Hebrew, besides notes on the Proverbs of Solomon and other works. Jean-Noël Paquot states the number of the printed works and treatises of the elder Drusius at forty-eight, and of the unprinted at upwards of twenty. Of the former more than two-thirds were inserted in the collection entitled Critici sacri, sive annotata doctissimorum virorum in Vetus et Novum Testamentum (Amsterdam, 1698, in 9 vols folio, or London, 1660, in 10 vols. folio). Amongst the works of Drusius not to be found in this collection may be mentioned: Alphabetum Hebraicum vetus (1584, 4to) Tabulae in grammaticam Chaldaicam ad usum juventutis (1602, 8vo) An edition of Sulpicius Severus (Franker, 1807, 12mo) Opuscula quae ad grammaticam spectant omnia (1609, 4to) Lacrymae in obitum J. Scaligeri (1609, 4to) Grammatica linguae sanctae nova (1612, 4to)." (Wikipedia) Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 1100 19 x 15 cm, Halbpergament mit umlaufendem Rotschnitt. Seller Inventory # 22432
