1667 Brerewood LINGUISTICS Diversity of Language Voyages American Pagans Indians Edward Brerewood was a 16th-century English known for his famous book 'Enquiries Touching the Diversity of Languages and Religion'. This book was one of the most important and influential books on the origin of language and linguistics. This work; however, was not without controversy. Brerewood theorized that Native Americans were decedents of Russian Turks; a notion that was not well-received by all linguists. According to Bell, "Besides presenting the religions of the world and the areas dominated by them, Brerewood discusses the size and populations of little-known regions and even speculates on the size of the Great Southern Continent." This work also features reports on the New World religious practices discovered by Spanish and Portuguese explorers. (Alden). Brerewood identifies many of the worshipers encountered in South America as pagan idolaters and sought to determine where the majority of Christians lived in the New ... Read more

Parke Custis's edition of George Washington's private memoirs. According to Larned,"These reminiscences of Washington were written by Mrs. Washington's grandson, who was adopted by George Washington at six months of age.

1866 1ed New York Stage American THEATER Actor Joseph Ireland James Hackett 2vThis major work on the early history of the American theatre chronicles more than a century of the plays presented at the various New York houses and the performers who appeared in them. According to the "Oxford Companion to American Theatre," author Joseph Ireland has "filled the book with numerous useful biographical sketches and other background information."Ireland devoted himself to the history of the stage producing two biographies of actors and notable American performances.

1696 EMBLEMS Verrien French EMBLEMATA Illustrated Medals & Crests Monogram Art Nicolas Verrien was a late 17th-century French engraver and monogram designer. Aside from his illustrations and monographs, Verrien published a book entitled simply 'Collection of Emblems' in which he describes the manner in which he identifies emblems, executes his artistic plan, and how to provide a proper motto to support the figure. First published in 1685, this work would see numerous reissues into the 18th-century, including this 1696 second edition. These scarce 17th-century printings include thousands of illustrated figures.

1685 Meditations of Rene Descartes Philosophy Metaphysics Existence of God Latin "It is not enough to have a good mind; the main thing is to use it well." – René Descartes René Descartes was a 17th-century French philosopher whose theories and discoveries spawned an influx of commentary and responsive writings from western philosophers. He wrote numerous studies on a variety of topics including meteorology, physics, dioptric, mechanics, and even music – all of which were collected in his work 'Discourse on the Method'. According to the 'Printing and the Mind of Man', "It is no exaggeration to say that Descartes was the first of modern philosophers and one of the first modern scientists; in both branches of learning his influence has been vast The revolution he caused can be most easily found in his reassertion of the principle (lost in the Middle Ages) that knowledge, if it is to have any value, must be intelligence and not erudition. His application of modern arithmetic to ancient geometry created ... Read more

1910 1ed Richard Wagner Ring of Nibelung EXQUISITE Norse Mythology Rackham ART "Joy is not in things; it is in us" ― Richard Wagner Richard Wagner's "Der Ring des Nibelungen" (or "The Ring of the Nibelung, WWV 86) was a landmark work in the history of music. It was a collection of four large-scale operas that created a 'cycle' of works which would in-turn be called the "Ring Cycle". The story loosely follows characters of Norse mythology and was a major influence in J.R.R. Tolkien's masterpiece "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy. This fine, first-issue 1910 printing was illustrated by the famous Arthur Rackham. This book contains two movements of the work – "The Rhinegold", and "The Valkyrie" (The others being "Siegfried" and "The Twilight of the Gods"). The color illustrations are classic Rackham style and feature trolls, beasts, magic spells, and more in a very dark, and sinister fantasy style. In fact, these illustrations are often collected, printed, and sold as a collection of prints without the tex ... Read more

1723 1st ed ENGLISH Physics Isaac NEWTON Illustrated Optics by Rohault & ClarkeJacques Rohault was an important French philosopher during the 17th-century, particularly in the field of Cartesian philosophy. His 'Treaty on Physics' became the standard physics textbook for most of the 1600s as it helped differentiate the differences in physics and metaphysics. It also covered studies on gravity and other references to Newtonian theories.This extremely rare and valuable English edition is important not only for its original studies by Rohault, but because of its commentary on Isaac Newton in the extensive footnotes.
