1826 Works of Pompeius Festus Ancient Rome Latin Grammar Flaccus Delphini Sextus Pompeius Festus was a Latin grammarian who made an abridgment in 20 books, arranged alphabetically, of Marcus Verrius Flaccus' De significatu verborum ("On the Meaning of Words"), a work that is otherwise lost. A storehouse of antiquarian learning, it preserves by quotation the work of other authors that have not survived elsewhere. Festus gives the etymology as well as the meaning of many words, and his work throws considerable light on the language, mythology and antiquities of ancient Rome. The first half of Festus' work, too, is lost, but a further abridgment of it by Paul the Deacon in the 8th century survives. The Festus Lexicon Project has summed up Paul's epitome of Festus' De Verborum Significatu as follows: The text, even in its present mutilated state, is an important source for scholars of Roman history. It is a treasury of historical, grammatical, legal and antiquarian learning, providing sometimes unique evidence f ... Read more

1873 1ed Mivart Man & Apes DARWIN EVOLUTION Zoology Illustrated Gorilla CatholicA first edition account of George Mivart's reaction to Darwinian naturalism.George Mivart was a 19th-century English biologist known for his attempts to merge the beliefs of Darwinian evolution and the Catholic Church – curiously, he was condemned by everyone! Mivart held views that were contrary to other scientists, including his view on the language of animals – he states:"Since we are unable to converse with brutes, we can but divine and infer from their gestures, motions, and the sounds they emit, what may be the nature of their highest psychical powers."Mivart discounted many of Darwin's own studies including his "hasty attribution of human qualities to brutes, on account of certain superficial resemblances." (Radick, p.69).According to Cooper and Hull,"Mivart describes primates, including humans, as being 'unguiculate, claviculate, placental mammals, with orbits encircled by bone; three kinds of teeth, at least at one ti ...

1823 Martial Epigrams Roman Poetry Epigrammaton Corruption in Rome Delphini "I live in a little cell, with a window that won't even close, In which Boreas himself would not want to live." – Martial, Epigrams Martial was a 1st-century Roman poet from Spain most-known for his 'Epigrams.' This important, early piece of Roman literature expresses details of life in Rome focusing in on the brutal daily life during the Roman Empire. Martial describes living conditions of Rome, corrupt physicians and senators, cruel treatment of slaves, and secrets and rumors of emperors. Because of the style of Martial's writing, he is often considered the first insult comic, as he used humor to disguise his disdain for the life with which he was so familiar. This edition is the collected works of Martial from the series 'Scriptores latini in usum Delphini.'

1884 1st French ed Adventures of Tom Sawyer Mark Twain Huck Finn American Lit First French edition of one of the most-recognizable American novels, Mark Twain's 'Adventures of Tom Sawyer' – the first novel Twain wrote entirely by himself (MacDonnell). The opportunity to own a first edition of any Twain is uncommon, but 'Tom Sawyer' is the high-spot in many collectors' libraries. 'Huckleberry Finn' also has the same appeal, but 'Tom Sawyer' does not carry the controversy like 'Finn' does. By the time Mark Twain had passed away, 'Tom Sawyer' had gained so much fame and prominence that it was without-a-doubt his most successful and top-selling book. This rare first French edition was published in Paris and translated out of English by William Hughes. The illustrations and vignettes in this edition are from Achille Sirouy.

1887 1st ed George McClellan Own Story Union General Civil War Slavery Lincoln "The Union, which can alone insure internal peace, and external security to each State, Must and Shall be Preserved, cost what it may in time, treasure, and blood." – George B. McClellan A rare first edition of George B. McClellan's "Own Story" which wasn't published until 1887, after his death. McClellan used this work as a platform to defend his conduct, actions, and decisions during the Mexican-American War and Civil War. This book includes letters to his wife, in which McClellan reveals his pride as a general as well as his feelings toward war. Some of the most important inclusions in this work are McClellan's views on the causes and reasons for the Civil War, noting slavery and the Lincoln-Douglas debates as primary causes, but he blamed the South as the culprit for causing the uprising, rather than putting any blame on the North. Per Eicher, "This is in large part a reworking of McClellan's 'Letter of the Secretary of Wa ... Read more

1819 Memoires of Duke of Sully France Henry IV Huguenot Utopian Europe 5v SET"A very valuable memoire of the history of the reign of Henry IV"Maximlien de Bethune was a 16th-century French statesman who was the first Duke of Sully. Most known for his service under Henry IV of France, Sully left a collection of memoirs which is now a valuable and important work on the history of France during the reign of Henry the Great. Even though 'Memoires' contains many fictitious stories, it is still recognized for its accuracy and portrayal of European royalty. The most controversial section of 'Memoires' is Sully's vision of a utopian society designed for all of Europe. He envisioned a Christian republic that was governed by a 'Very Christian Council' in which all differences were resolved and a military was complete removed. Some scholars even claim that Sully's plan helped establish what would become the current European Union.According to Tulard, this work is a "very valuable memoire of the history of the reign of ...

1758 Thomas More UTOPIA Socialism Politics Dystopian Marxism + Warner Memoir"[how can anyone] be silly enough to think himself better than other people, because his clothes are made of finer woolen thread than theirs. After all, those fine clothes were once worn by a sheep, and they never turned it into anything better than a sheep." ― Thomas More, Utopia Thomas More was one of the most important Catholic philosophers of the late 15th-century. He is remembered for his work 'Utopia', a famous book depicting a fictional island society with its own social, religious, and political customs. 'Utopia' and More's other works were highly influential to Anabaptists, communism, and social Marxism. Many aspects of 'Utopia' describe life in a monastery, yet still, More seems to be criticizing European society – which he considered to have many problems. More, a devout Catholic, writes of controversial topics which those on the island of Utopia practiced such as divorce, euthanasia, married priests, and female priests ... Read more
