1590 Tacitus Annals Histories Roman Empire Nero ROME Plantin Lipsius Commentary"The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws." ― Tacitus, The Annals Cornelius Tacitus was a 1st-century Roman historian who is now remembered for his two major works – 'Annals' and 'Histories' – in which he examines the lives and political careers of important Roman emperors such as Tiberius, Nero, and Claudius. By many accounts, Tacitus is considered the greatest Roman historian, not only by the accuracy of his content, but through demonstrating the psychological nature of ancient Roman politics.'Histories' is one of the first written accounts to discuss the Great Jewish Revolt, an account that openly records combative attitudes between Jews and other cultures. 'Annals' was Tacitus's final work and covers the era following the death of Caesar Augustus, including the reigns of Claudius, Caligula, and Nero. It is also the earliest known secular history to mention Jesus Christ in which Tacitus connects Nero to the p ... Read more

1734 Dianen SECRETS of Hunting Tanzer German Illustrated Bear Traps Sport DOGS The best edition of the most important German language hunting book! Johan Tänzer was a 17th-century German hunting writer known exclusively for this treatise on the secrets of hunting. This book was without question the most extensive and most important hunting book in the German language throughout the 17th- and 18th-centuries. This book, which went through a number of varying titles, discuses hunting bear, boar, deer, wolves, birds, and other large game. Tanzer describes trapping techniques, shooting and aiming, and tracking; but, in addition to the interesting content, the plates are some of the most desirable hunting engravings ever published. According to Schwerdt, "The plates are curious and give a complete survey of all the features of a great state hunt." Tanzer also focues heavily on types and breeds of sport and hunting dogs – giving details on how to train dogs and the necessary skills they need to enhance a hunt. ... Read more

1684 Saint Theophilus of Antioch Apology of Autolycus PAGAN Worship Holy Trinity Theophilus of Antioch was a 2nd-century early church father primarily remembered solely for his work 'Apology to Autolycus'. This work is a collection of short books in which Theophilus defended Christianity to his pagan friend. He describes how he himself was born into paganism but found truth through Holy Scriptures and began to identify the flaws of pagan worship. While this work is notable for refuting pagan practices, it is perhaps best-known for being the earliest Christian work to use the word 'trinity' when referring to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, even though 'Apology' is rooted in Jewish and Old Testament Hebrew scriptures. This first Oxford edition was published in 1684 and features the iconic Sheldonian Theatre printer's mark on the title page.

1804 1st print Thornhill Shooting Directory HUNTING Color Illustrated Sport Guns Richard Thornhill's 'Shooting Directory' is one of, if not the best early 19th-century shooting and hunting manual. This incredible folio hunting guide is a collection of discussions on hunting dogs, firearms and gunpowder, shooting styles, and of course descriptions of game animals. While hunting books have always been popular amongst sportsmen, this particular book is known to have more draw than most because of its exquisite full-page, color engravings! This incredibly rare and valuable true first printing includes pages 214-220 which were suppressed from later editions. These pages highly criticized the hunting ability and shooting techniques of King George III. It is certainly because of these claims that, following the publication of this book, Thornhill moved from England to live full-time in Paris.

1810 Beethoven Mozart Haydn Pleyel Violin Classical Music Piano Trios & Sonatas An incredibly rare early 19th-century printing of well-known pieces of chamber music by some of the best at the trade – Mozart, Beethoven, and Haydn. And while the pieces themselves can be found by a number of printers and publishers throughout the years, the printing of Beethoven and Haydn is of particular note. Ignace Pleyel was a prestigious and important music publisher in the early 18th-century. However, one of the most frustrating difficulties with his music was his purposeful omission of the date. According to Rita Benton in 'Pleyel as a Music Publisher', this "led to considerable difficulties for bibliographers, cataloguers, and antiquarian dealers and any others who have to deal in some way with the music. Two elements present in a particular piece at hand may be utilized as a means of dating it: the imprint and the plate number appearing at the foot of all pages." This edition meets both of these points – having ... Read more
