SCARCE 1740 BOOK by SCALIGER with Two Interesting BOOKPLATES. About JOSEPH JUSTUS SCALIGER (excerpted from Wikipedia): ******Joseph Justus Scaliger, b. 1540 d. 1609, was a French religious leader and scholar, known for expanding the notion of classical history from Greek and ancient Roman history to include Persian, Babylonian, Jewish and ancient Egyptian history. He spent the last sixteen years of his life in the Netherlands. During the first seven years of his residence at Leiden his reputation was at its highest point. His literary judgement was unquestioned. From his throne at Leiden he ruled the learned world; a word from him could make or mar a rising reputation. At the same time, Scaliger had made numerous enemies. He hated ignorance, but he hated still more half-learning, and most of all dishonesty in argument or in quotation. He had no toleration for the disingenuous argument and the misstatements of facts of those who wrote to support a theory or to defend an unsound cause. His pungent sarcasm soon reached the ears of the persons who were its object, and his pen was not less bitter than his tongue. He was conscious of his power, and not always sufficiently cautious or sufficiently gentle in its exercise. He made many enemies. The results of his method of historical criticism threatened the Catholic controversialists and the authenticity of many of the documents on which they relied. The Jesuits, who aspired to be the source of all scholarship and criticism, saw the writings and authority of Scaliger as a formidable barrier to their claims. Scaliger was known to be an irreconcilable Protestant and as long as his intellectual supremacy was unquestioned, the Protestants had the advantage in learning and scholarship. His enemies therefore aimed to attack him as a man and to destroy his reputation. This was no easy task, for his moral character was high. Nonetheless, in 1607 the Jesuits successfully attacked Scaliger by publishing a 400 page tome that purportedly exposed 500 lies in Scaliger's works. This was said to have broken Scaliger's spirit, and two years later he died.******

SCARCE 1747 TWO VOLUME SET on LAW by the highly influential BOHMER. These tomes would look great on the SHELF of any LAWYER or LEGAL SCHOLAR, or in the bookcase of anyone who appreciates rare, interesting old books! About JUSTUS HENNING BÖHMER (from Wikipedia): ******Justus Henning Böhmer (b. 1674 in Hanover, d. 1749 in Halle) was an outstanding German jurist, ecclesiastical jurist, Professor of the University of Halle; and also Geheimer Rat, Count Palatine and Chancellor of the Duchy of Magdeburg. In the judicial field initially he was a protectionist of the existing "territorial system" or Erastian theory of ecclesiastical government, but in the following years he tended towards the natural right and "Kollegialismus". In his first great work, "Jus Ecclesiasticum Protestantiun" he drew on the traditional Canon Law, but he reformed the law so that it was exempted from rigid orthodoxy, principles, resistance and dogmatism. Affected by the ideas of the Age of Enlightenment he represented an increasing critical and scientific development instead of a religious fundamentalism. Böhmer's legal thinking predominated in Protestantism church law of the 18th century, and was the basis for numerous church reforms yet to be. His results in the domain of civil law were of similar importance. In his next main work "Introductio in Jus Digestorum", a pandects-compendium which was maintained until the 20th century, he liberated the traditional German law from the influence of the old Roman law and thus prepared the basis of "general Landrecht (law code) of the Prussian states". A huge amount of further significant and notable works on civil and church law as well as expertises were penned by him, and were published by his son Georg Ludwig Böhmer after Justus Henning's death in the collected edition "Exercitationes ad Pandectas".****** INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: These two large books are heavy and will require substantial additional shipping charges.

TWO VOLUMES. Hardcovers, leather covered boards, spine decorated and lettered in gilt, marbled page edges, marbled endpapers, xcv, [1], 264; lvi, [4], 201-684. (Note that the numbered pages at the end of Volume One and the beginning of Volume Two are not consecutive - i.e. Volume one ends at page number 264, Volume Two begins with page number 201. This is as the Two Volumes were originally published - probable printer's error. Both volumes have been collated by me with rare copies from major National Libraries that have been digitized online.) PRESENTATION COPY. Each Title-Page is INSCRIBED with a HAND-WRITTEN PRESENTATION by THE AUTHOR: "JEAN CHARLES GROSSARD... ex Dono auctoris". CONDITION: TWO BOOKS. The leather covers of both volumes are rubbed and scraped, the spine ends are chipped, the bottom of the spine of Volume Two is peeling, the front spine hinge of each volume is split but holding well; overall the covers are worn but remain attractive and are still doing their job well. Internally, the front pastedown has a long vertical scrape, as if from the removal of a piece of tape at some point. There are relevant handwritten margin notes and marks, in pencil and in English, here and there throughout. I do not know who might have written them, but they are certainly by someone carefully studying the work. The inner pages of both volumes have a bit of toning, foxing and some margin shorelining, here and there throughout, but overall the inner pages are tight, bright and clean, a remarkably well kept, sharp, clear and lovely printing of this scarce book. ILLUSTRATED with 19 ENGRAVED PLATES: ENGRAVED PORTRAIT by Thomiers at the front of Volume One, Lovely FRONTISPIECE ENGRAVING by Bacheley at the front of Volume Two (showing Women using all five senses: Sight - looking in a mirror, Sound - playing music, Taste - pouring wine; Smell - smoke from an incense burner; Touch - toughing a newly hammered helmet); PLUS 17 additional engraved PLATES (16 of which FOLD-OPEN). Also ILLUSTRATED with lovely ENGRAVED VIGNETTES at the head of many chapters, and with ENGRAVED HEAD and TAIL PIECES. This specific work by LE CAT, TRAITÉ DES SENSATIONS ET DES PASSIONS, is VERY SCARCE. About Claude-Nicolas LE CAT (from Wikipedia): ******Le Cat (1700-1768) surgeon, anatomist, & physiologist. In 1736 he established a school for anatomy & surgery in Rouen. The 'Traité Des Sensations Et Des Passions'; is considered to be Le Cat's most important work. The work grew as much out of his researches in physics as in physiology. In it Le Cat presented a theory of the propagation of light contrary to that of Newtonian attraction. He further reported on the pigmented choroid coat of the eye and assigned it a common embryonic origin with the pigment of the skin. Le Cat's reputation in France and Europe is reflected by his numerous academic awards, publications, and by surgical renown.******

    (PASTORS' GUIDE for the GOOD ADMINISTRATION of INDIANS... Composed by DON ALONSO DE LA PENA MONTENEGRO, Bishop of the Diocese of San Francisco de Quito...)

    EN MADRID: En la Oficina de Pedro Marin, 1771. Nueva Edicion, Purgada de Muchisimos Hierros (New Edition, Purged of Numerous Errors). TEXT IN SPANISH.

    VELLUM BOUND, limp vellum , five cord spine bands, manuscript title on spine (mostly faded), 8x12 inches (20cm x 30cm), Pagination: [2] blank free endpaper, [32], 612 pages.

    CONDITION: The vellum covers are soiled, darkened, rubbed, missing a half-dollar size piece at the upper rear corner, and well creased (as normal for limp vellum); nonetheless the vellum covers remain quite lovely in a Harry Potter Hogwarts' Library way. Internally, the front and rear inner hinges are split but holding with the cord binding; the bottom half of the last two leaves (pages 609/610 and 611/612) is roughly torn off; the rear free endpaper is lacking, and the rear pastedown is mostly lacking; there is chipping to the bottom corner of the first few pages, not affecting text; light foxing and some age spotting here and there throughout; otherwise the inner pages are nice, complete, tight, bright, clean and unmarked.
