    REDWOOD CAMP MEETING, NORTHERN CALIFORNIA CONFERENCE OF SEVENTH DAY ADVENTISTS. A collection of 16 cassette tapes. Plastic folding clamshell case filled with 16 cassette tapes of sermons and lectures. These were, perhaps, given (or sold) to the camp participants and listened to at the Seventh Day Adventists Camp Conference that took place in the year 2000. (Though the camp conference took place in 2000 the tapes show that they were recorded mostly in the 1990s. One tape has a date of 2001 that may have been added later?) 16 cassette tapes. I do not know the playing time of the tapes. Tape titles include: MARK OF BEAST VS. SEAL OF GOD; EARTH'S LAST BATTLE : ARMAGEDDON; LOVE GOD & DO…

The tapes all appear to me to be in GOOD condition, though the labels have bubbled. I have tested several and they played fine. I have provided photos that show exactly what tapes are in the folding case.

TEXT IN FRENCH. The spiritual works of the Reverend Louys of Granada, divided into four parts : La Guide des Pecheurs (The Fishermen's Guide); Le Livre de l'Oraison (The Book of Contemplative Prayer); Le Memorial de la Vie Christienne (The Memorial of Christian Life), and le Livre de L'Amour de Dieu (the Book of God's Love); avec la Lettre de S. Eucher (with the Letter of St. Eucher). Condition:

    The covers are worn, soiled, and scraped, the bottom cover corners are bent and creased, the spine is frayed at its ends and pulling for 1 inch at the top, the spine label has some chips; nonetheless the covers are solid, doing their job well, and are attractive in a Hogwarts Library sort of way. Internally, the pages have lightly toned and there is foxing to the first and last few pages, there are some old previous owner's signatures and notes here and there; a few pages have some edge wear and corner chipping; overall the pages are complete, tight, bright, clean and clear. A solid, nice copy of this important book. The Venerable Louis of Granada, OP (b. 1505 d. 1588), was a Dominican friar noted as theologian, writer and preacher. The cause for his canonization has been long accepted by the Holy See (i.e. he has been declared and accepted as a SAINT by the Catholic Church). Scarce.

Though many believe the 1673 edition is the first edition, IT IS NOT, as a collation with the 1671 Austrian edition and numerous bibliographic citations clearly show. Leather covered boards, spine has five compartments and four raised spine bands, tooled with framing and designs to the front and rear boards and with a design in each of the five spine compartments, 6.5x8". Pagination: Blank Front Free-Endpaper, [2] blank prelim page, [1] Frontispiece Engraving, [1] blank verso, [1] Title-Page, [1] blank verso, [3] "Serenissimo Principi Ranutio II", [1] Printer's / Publishers / "Imprimatur" Colophon page (with the date 1671 in two places), 537 Text, [38] Index, [1] blank verso, [2] blank end paper,

    Blank Rear Free-Endpaper. Plus 5 fold-open Plates. Illustrated with FRONTISPIECE ENGRAVING and FIVE FOLD-OPEN PLATES. All 5 Fold-Open Plates are Present, however they are all disbound and laid-in at their proper place. CONDITION: Covers are split at the front spine fold and tender at the rear spine fold but holding well with the cord binding, covers are bowing a bit, covers are worn through at the corners and places along the edges, have some rubs and scrapes, but are still quite lovely with their tooled leather covers and spine. Internally, there is an early handwritten note pasted on the front pastedown (in Latin-Italian?), there is some foxing, toning and smudging most noticeably on the first and last few pages and very light on most pages, "Bibliotheque (De Lovina?)" is written at the top of a blank prelim page - the page facing the engraved frontispiece page, there is some edge chipping and wear (not affecting text) mainly to the first and last few pages, otherwise the inner pages are still tight bright, clean and unmarked. THE PLATES are all disbound, all have edge chips and wear (some lightly affecting the image), closed tears to the folds and edges, tape repairs to their blank backsides, foxing primarily to the margins and backsides, and signs of handling; in spite of these flaws the plates are still solid, impressive, and quite lovely. All the plates are laid-in at their proper place. This 1671 FIRST EDITION is almost Impossible To Find, especially in a complete state, with its frontispiece and all five plates present.

He was involved in many aspects of Italian life, but his main pursuit, which he began at a very early age, was collecting books and manuscripts. At the time of his death in 1889, he left a library of approximately 25,000 rare and highly valued volumes. This is one of those volumes. Condition: The Vellum Covers have yellowed and toned, the spine has substantially darkened, there is some peeling and cracking to the covers' edges and 2" of splitting at the top and bottom of the spine folds, the edges and spine ends are shelf worn and rubbed through at places, nonetheless the covers are solid, doing their job well, and attractive in a Harry Potter's Hogwarts Library way. There is a bit of writing on the endpapers, a small bookplate to the front pastedown (as noted above) and a small label with numbers to the rear pastedown;

    the front free endpaper is creased, the title page has some edge wear and small edge chips, there is light toning and foxing throughout, overall the inner pages are very nice - tight, bright, clean, and unmarked.

Overall a complete, solid, presentable copy of this book from 1713. About FRANÇOIS DOUAREN (from Wikipedia): ******François Douaren (also sometimes spelled Duaren; Franciscus Duarenus; Francisci Duareni) b. 1509 d. 1559,

    was a French jurist and professor of law at the University of Bourges. After studies in Paris under Budé and in Bourges, Douaren worked as an advocate for the Parlement of Paris. In 1538, he was called to teach at Bourges. Following a bitter dispute with Baro, he abandoned the chair for Paris until Baro's death in 1550, after which Douaren returned to teach at Bourges. Like his compatriots Jacques Cujas, François Hotman and Hugues Doneau, Douaren was one of the leading representatives of the legal humanist school of thought within the science of Roman law on the European continent. These 16th century French law professors applied the philological methods of the Italian humanists to legal texts. It was their aim to arrive at a historically more accurate understanding of the texts of the Roman Corpus Iuris Civilis. In addition to numerous commentaries on the Corpus, Douaren wrote a leading commentary on the Roman law of obligations, Commentarius de pactis (1544), which greatly influenced modern theories of obligations. His 1544 programme of studies, De ratione docendi discendique iuris epistola, was the first statement of the mos gallicus, the French Humanist approach to higher education. Its core contents - language studies, introductory classes on the base of the Justinian Code, a methodical approach based on the laws of the Corpus - came to be introduced at most European legal faculties.******

    Autore (by) JO: BAPTISTA DU HAMEL.

    PARS PRIMA only (PART ONE ONLY of Two Parts).

    VENETIIS (Venice) MDCCXXXI (1731). Ex Typographia Balleoniana.

    Hardcovers, leather covered boards, bound with six cord bands, large thick volume, 8x11.5 inches, 866 pages.

    Illustrated with a title page engraving, head and tail pieces, engraved title letters, and most notably approximately 60 (I tried to count them all but probably missed some) intricately detailed 2.5x2.25 inch in text woodcuts.

    This particular copy is particularly interesting because of one of its flaws. The leaf composed of pages 551 and 552 is missing and has been replaced with hand copied text of the missing pages. The handwritten script is on 3 pages of a 4 page single fold sheet that has been bound in with string. The hand copied text appears to have been done at a time fairly contemporary with the printing of this book. The calligraphy is beautiful. The pages of hand calligraphy do have some edge chipping that affects a few words.

    FAIR Condition: The covers are scraped, rubbed, and worn, with chips and some tears to the spine covering, and boards that are worn though at their corners and edges; nonetheless the covers are still holding together and doing their job. Internally, the front and rear hinges are completely split but holding together with the six cord binding; there are two ink stamps on the front free endpaper, both indicating the book was in Caraglio, Italy, at some point; the inner hinge is split at a number of places, holding together by the cord binding, but causing the overall binding to be somewhat shaky and the front page edges to be irregular; the text block is stiff with age; the leaf composed of pages 553 and 554 (following the hand written pages) has old yellowed tape repairs over its face and is almost (but not quite!) loose; some pages, including the title page, have shorelining / waterstaining, but the text and illustrations are always fully legible; there are some age spots, light stains and smudges, and other signs of age here and there; overall the inner pages are still bright, clean and clear, with printing that is fully legible throughout. Part One only of Two Parts, as noted above.

    This 1731 Edition is the EARLIEST EDITION I could find online at the time of this writing.

After placing your order you will be notified of the additional charges and be able to accept or reject them before your payment is processed.

About BARTHOLOMEW MASTRIUS (from Wikipedia): ******Bartholomew Mastrius (Bartholomaeus, Bartolomeo Mastri) (b.1602 in Meldola, d.1673 in Meldola) was an Italian Conventual Franciscan philosopher and theologian. He acquired a profound knowledge of scholastic philosophy and theology, being deeply versed in the writings of Duns Scotus. As a controversialist he was harsh and arrogant towards his opponents, mingling invective with his arguments. His opinions on some philosophical questions were fiercely disputed by many of his contemporaries and especially by Matthew Ferchi and the Irish Franciscan John Punch. He was one of the most prominent writers of his time on philosophy and theology. His works shed light on some of the difficult questions in Scotistic philosophy and theology.****** INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: This 4 volume set is large and very heavy and will require substantial additional shipping charges.

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.******

Volume I has a copper engraved frontispiece portrait of Benedict XIV by Martin Tyroff, and a copper engraved printer's device on the title page. Both Volume I and II have head and tail piece engravings and ornamental initials. CONDITION: The leather covers on both bindings are scraped, rubbed, worn through at the corners and edges, chipped at the spine ends, and the spine labels are substantially chipped away; there is a some worming to the bottom edge and corners of the covers of Volume II; despite the wear, the covers are solid, still doing their job well, and attractive in a Harry Potter Hogwarts Library sort of way. Internally, the front and rear inner hinges are split but holding well with the cord binding, the pages are lightly toned and foxed throughout and have some corner creases and other signs of wear here and there, the title page has some paper repair to its top margin that affect the top portion of the first words (they are still fully legible); overall the pages are tight, bright, clean and clear. 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.
