An impressive, folio printing of the music of Franz Joseph Haydn.

Haydn is, without question, one of the most important and recognized figures in the history of classical music. Haydn's only mistake was composing and performing at the same time as Mozart. However, Haydn's music is still highly playable and enjoyed around the world.

This tome is the viola part to Haydn's string quartets and sonatas. These books were published around 1830 in Paris.

Gerard Croese was a 17th-century Dutch minister who is primarily remembered for his chronicle on the early history of the Quakers.

Books published in the 17th-century that cover early America are exceedingly rare and worthy of note. This book by Croese is no exception.

Description:
1874 1ed Mivart Man & Apes DARWIN EVOLUTION Zoology Illustrated Gorilla Catholic

A first American 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… Read More

Description:
1796 Paradise Lost BOSTON John Milton Poetry + Regained RARE American ed Newton

"The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven."
― John Milton, Paradise Lost

'Paradise Lost' follows the biblical story of the Fall of Man and the temptation of Adam and Eve. Milton himself states that purpose for this book was to "Justify the ways of God to Men". It covers the characters Adam, Eve, and Satan and the roles each played in the development of religious culture and idolatry.
It was critically acclaimed and well-received by many famed personalities, including Samuel Johnson who states.
"[Paradise Lost shows] Milton's peculiar power to astonish…and he seems to have been well acquainted with his own genius, and to know what it was the Nature had bestowed upon him more bountifully than upon others: the power of displaying the vast, illuminating the splendid, enforcing the awful, darkening the gloomy, and aggravating the dreadful.

Esprit Fléchier was a 17th-century French author who composed two important historical works – the histories of Cardinal Ximenes and Emperor Theodosius I – which are known to be highly accurate and insightful.

1699 1ed Idylls of Theocritus Ancient Greek Poetry Latin & Greek Scaliger Oxford

Theocritus was a 3rd-century BC Greek poet best known for writing pastoral poems. In fact, his Idylls are considered to be the first pastoral poems. They are still widely read today, much in part to fine 17th-century examples such as this 1699 Oxford printing. This particular edition is considerably noteworthy – it features both Latin and original Greek texts with translations and annotated notes by Joseph Scaliger, Isaac Casaubon, and Daniel Heinsius.
