    Memoiren in Begleitung Vertrauter Briefe Sr. Majestät des Königs Ludwig von Bayern und der Lola Montez. Herausgegeben Von A. Pappon Und Anderen by Montez, Lola

    Stuttgart: J.Scheible, 1849. Three sequences bound in one: 160, 159, 552. The boards have been neatly covered with deocorative paper thatcould be original Jugendstil and the spine reinforced again at a much later date with blue electric tape, which has partially lifted at the tail; another later addition is the front paste down / front hinge; there are two library stamps on the title page and throughout most of the book the tail of the pages have a stain which fans across the hinge on both sides. There is also intermittent foxing throughout the book. Some pages are crease along the lower outer edge. In the third section, the hinge between pp 170 - 171 has been reinforced with brown tape; throught the book the printer has cut the pages unevenly, so unevenly on page 503 that some of the words have been guillotined. Page 504 is fine and finally the back hinge is cracked at the head. The book is better than 'fair', and yet for all its faults it remains a fundamentally good copy that is comfortable to read, solid and should easily survive a couple more centuries. German translation of the original French: " Lola Montes, memoires accompagnes de lettres intimes de S. M. le Roi de Baviere et de Lola Montes,.." published in the same year. A rare title. . Hard Cover. 24mo - over 5" - 5¾" tall.

    Adam Lonicer, Kreuterbuch Künstliche Conterfeztunge der Baeume, Stauden, Hecken, Kreuter, Getrende, Gewürtze: Mit eygentlicher Besschreibung derselbigen Namen, Underschend, Gestalt, Naturilische Krafft und Wirckung. Jtem von fürnembsten Gethiern der Erden, Voegeln, und fischen. Mit Roem Renferlicher Maiestat Knaden und Privilegio auff acht Jar 1564. Getruckt zu Franckfort am Meyn, Bei Christian Egenolffe Erben in Jar MDLXIIII [1564]. Adam Lonicer (1528 – 1586) completed his title as follows: Auch von Metallen, Gummi, und gestandenen Saefften. Sampt Distillierens Künstlischem und turzen bericht. Mit fleissigen volkommenen Registern in Sechserley Spraachen, Nemlich, Greichish, Lateinish, Italianish, Franzoeisch, Spanisch, teutsch. Auch besonderm Register der heylung allerhand gepzesten. Jessoganz von newem durchsehen, gebessert, und mit mehren Breutem und figuren erstreckt. (A translation of the title: A Herbal, Artistic Pictures of Trees, Shrubs, Hedges, Herbs, Grains, Spices with Appropriate Description of the Names of the Same in Six Languages, Namely Greek, Latin, French, German, and Italian & the Form of the Natural Force & Operations of the Same Together, With a Helpful and Good Account of the Art of Distilling. Also of the Leading Animals, Birds, and Fishes of the Earth – also of Metals, and Precious Stones, Gems, Juices or Liquors …) Second German edition, the third edition after the first Latin 1551 and the first German 1557. This is a hand-colored copy. The title page has been repaired. The following folia are missing: I – XIII; XIV, XV and XVI; XIX, XXIV; XXXII, XXXV; XXXVI; XXXVIII; XLIII; XLIV; XLVII; XLVIII; XLIX; LVII; LVIII; LXXII; LXXIX, a total of 31. By comparison to the 1598 edition with 382 folia, this copy has 322. The 1557 edition, probably the German first edition, has 342 folia. This copy lacks the sections on distilling and mining. This book was trimmed and rebound, probably in the late eighteenth or early nineteenth century, in vellum, now scratched, but still a tight functioning binding. The top of the spine is cracked but not chipped (about 4 cm from the top). The book measures 28 cm x 17.5 cm x 5.5 cm. This copy bears all the signs of a much-used copy, including marginalia and a doodle of a boring professor (?) on F 265. Each folio is illustrated. The woodcuts are probably by Hans Weiditz. Even with the above exceptions noted, this is still a good working, hand-colored copy, printed on heavy laid paper.
