        The Religious Ceremonies and Customs of the Several Nations of the Known World.

      London: printed for Nicholas Prevost [later, Claude du Bosc],, 1731-39. Represented in above an hundred copper-plates, designed by the famous Picart. Together with historical explanations, and several curious dissertations. 7 volumes bound as 6, folio (395 x 240 mm). Late 18th century russia sometime rebacked to style, gilt panelled sides, speckled edges, marbled endpapars renewed. With all full-page or folding plates as indicated in the list of plate, as follows: I, 38 plates (plate 38 misnumbered 35 in the plate list); II, 27 plates; III, 45 plates; IV, 58 plates; V, 19 plates; VI, 13 plates; VII, 26 plates; i.e. 226 plates in total (complete); title pages printed in red and black with vignettes by VanderGucht. Chip to head of vol. I, touch of craquelure and patches of wear to bindings, scattered foxing, some toning and offsetting from plates to letterpress, supplied double-page plate of the High Mass (vol. I p. 312) in a rather faint impression but overall a very good, attractive set. First English edition of one of the great books of the 18th century, a work that "marked a major turning point in European attitudes toward religious belief" (Hunt, Jacob & Mijnhardt, The Book that Changed Europe: Picart & Bernard's Religious Ceremonies of the World, Harvard UP 2010, p. 1). Originally published in French at Amsterdam between 1723 and 1737, the monumental Ceremonies and Religious Customs of the Various Nations was the result of a collaboration between Europe's leading engraver, Bernard Picart, and the publisher and author Jean Frederic Bernard. Both men were Protestant refugees driven by the Counter-Reformation from France to Amsterdam, where, in a fertile milieu of radicals and free-thinkers, they produced one of the world's greatest religious books. "The original seven volumes were supplemented by two others that are very different in character and not included here [in the Getty Research Library's set]" (ibid.). Despite its radical perspective, Religious Ceremonies was a publishing phenomenon, selling out in the first edition of 1200 copies and remaining a bestseller for the next century. The first English edition, published with Bernard's approval, sold so well that a single-volume edition was published in 1741. While the English translator expurgated some of the most heretical passages, the translation is, unlike many piracies and later editions, true to Bernard and Picart's grand vision. As a reference book it was unprecedented; "no other work before then had ever attempted, in word and image, such a grand sweep of human religions" (ibid. p. 1). But as a meditation on culture it was revolutionary. "It sowed the radical idea that religions could be compared on equal terms, and therefore that all religions were equally worthy of respect – and criticism. It turned belief in one unique, absolute, and God-given truth into 'religion', that is, into individual ceremonies and customs that reflected the truths relative to each people and culture" (ibid. p. 2). A very appealing set with rich impressions of the superb plates. Provenance: each volume with remounted rococo armorial bookplate surmounted by a viscount's coronet and bearing the motto "Rapidus Contrarius Orbi", blazoning the impaled arms of the Duke of Norfolk with Finch (a chevron between three griffins passant sable); Heneage Finch, fourth Earl of Aylesford (1751-1812), was styled Lord Guernsey between 1757 and 1777 and this set may be from his library; Finch was an accomplished landscape artist and etcher, a number of whose works are held by the Tate.

      - aquarellierter Manuskriptplan v. R.C. Tilger, dat. 1731, 49 x 70,5 Rudolf Christian Tilger war ein wohl aus Regensburg stammender Ingenieur, er verfasste im Auftrag des Hofkriegsrates ("Conseil aulique de guerre") den hier vorliegenden Plan über den Ausbau der Festung Kehl. Der gegenüber von Straßburg gelegene Brückenkopf wurde zum Schutz der Rheinbrücke erstmals im Dreißigjährigen Krieg befestigt und in den Jahren danach unter anderem von Vauban zu einer der größten Festungen Europas ausgebaut. Durch den Friedensvertrag von Rijswijk kam Kehl ebenso wie die Festung Philippsburg zum Heiligen Römischen Reich. Am Vorabend des Polnischen Thronfolgekriegs gab es Pläne beide Festungen ausbauen zu lassen (ein Plan Tilgers von Philippsburg findet sich im Atlas Frederiks V in der königlichen Bibliothek in Kopenhagen), zur Ausführung gelangten die Pläne jedoch nicht; etwas fleckig, kleinere Randläsuren, in Summe von guter Erhaltung.

        PHYSICA SACRA. ((Can also come under the titles, KUPFER BIBEL, PHYSIQUE SACRE, GEESTLELYKE NATUURKUNDE.)

      Augsburg und Ulm 1731-1735 - 2 volumes small folio 15x10 inches. THE PLATES ONLY BOUND WITHOUT THE TEXT in two very worn volumes. Illustrated with one portrait only, and 759 OF 760 ENGRAVED PLATES including the 10 bis plates but wanting plate 1. The rainbow plate 66 hand coloured, as usual. Condition- binding poor, 6 plates torn without loss, one plate torn with loss, last 8 plates creased and some occasional marking - however generally clean and a reasonable working or breaking set of these stunning illustrations. This theological cum scientific work is an admirable attempt to reconcile biblical passages with the new sciences. The plates, by J. M. Fussli with borders by J.D. Preissler, illustrate Bible scenes surrounded by wonderful baroque borders incorporating natural history and scientific subjects, cosmic designs, architectural illustrations and numerous plates of plants and mammals and fishes and birds and shells and fossils, the supposed relics of the ante-diluvian world. It is a pictorial monument to a heroic and futile enterprise. A EXTRAORDINARY ILLUSTRATED NATURAL HISTORY WORK AND A GREAT EXAMPLE OF THE DECORATIVE AND IMAGINATIVE NATURE OF THE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY COPPER ENGRAVING.

        Astro-Theology: or, a Demonstration of the Being and Attributes of God, From a Survey of the Heavens.

      London, W. Innys. 1731 - Sprache: English Sixth Edition. Octavo. [16] lvi [8] 246 pages,[10] [3 foldout engravings]. Original Hardcover / bound in contemporary panelled calf. The book has been sympathetically rebacked to style. Besides a spot of hard green adhesive to the front board in very good condition. The armorial bookplate of Dr Blackett appears on the first pastedown. The text is complete and clean with the three foldout engravings of the cosmos to the rear, a little archival paper restoration to one of the engravings. William Derham FRS (26 November 1657 – 5 April 1735) was an English clergyman, natural theologian and natural philosopher. He produced the earliest, reasonably accurate estimate of the speed of sound. William Derham was the son of Thomas Derham. He was born at Stoulton, in Worcestershire, England. He was educated at Blockley, Gloucestershire and at Trinity College, Oxford from 1675 to 1679. He was ordained on 29 May 1681. In 1682, he became vicar of Wargrave, Berkshire and from 1689 to 1735 he was Rector at Upminster, Essex. While at Upminster, in 1716 he became a Canon of Windsor and the vestry minutes show that thereafter he divided his time between those two places. The parish registers of Upminster record his burial at St. Laurence's in 1735. However, the precise site of his grave is unknown and, in accordance with his wishes, there is no memorial to him in the church. In 1696, he published his Artificial Clockmaker, which went through several editions. The best known of his subsequent works are Physico-Theology, published in 1713; Astro-Theology, 1714; and Christo-Theology, 1730. All three of these books are teleological arguments for the being and attributes of God, and were used by William Paley nearly a century later. However, these books also include quantities of original scientific observations. For example, Physico-Theology contains his recognition of natural variation within species and that he knew that Didelphis virginialis (the Virginia opossum) was the only marsupial in North America. Similarly, Astro-Theology includes several newly identified nebulae (this was the name used at the time for all extended astronomical objects: some of his nebulae are what we would now call star clusters). His 16-feet long telescope (also used when measuring the velocity of sound) was at the top of the tower of St Laurence's Church, where the necessary doors are still in place. On 3 February 1703, Derham was elected Fellow of the Royal Society. He was Boyle lecturer in 1711–1712. His last known work, entitled A Defence of the Church's Right in Leasehold Estates, appeared as early as 1731. But besides the works published in his own name, Derham contributed a variety of papers to the Transactions of the Royal Society. He revised the Miscellanea Curiosa. He edited the correspondence and wrote a biography of John Ray, whose 'physico-theology' (natural theology) tradition he continued, making him an early parson-naturalist. He edited Eleazar Albin's Natural History, and published some of the manuscripts of the scientist Robert Hooke. His meteorological observations at Upminster (in the Transactions of the Royal Society) are amongst the earliest series in England. (Wikipedia)

      - aquarellierter Manuskriptplan v. R.C. Tilger, dat. 1731, 49 x 70,5 Rudolf Christian Tilger war ein wohl aus Regensburg stammender Ingenieur, er verfasste im Auftrag des Hofkriegsrates ("Conseil aulique de guerre") den hier vorliegenden Plan über den Ausbau der Festung Kehl. Der gegenüber von Straßburg gelegene Brückenkopf wurde zum Schutz der Rheinbrücke erstmals im Dreißigjährigen Krieg befestigt und in den Jahren danach unter anderem von Vauban zu einer der größten Festungen Europas ausgebaut. Durch den Friedensvertrag von Rijswijk kam Kehl ebenso wie die Festung Philippsburg zum Heiligen Römischen Reich. Am Vorabend des Polnischen Thronfolgekriegs gab es Pläne beide Festungen ausbauen zu lassen (ein Plan Tilgers von Philippsburg findet sich im Atlas Frederiks V in der königlichen Bibliothek in Kopenhagen), zur Ausführung gelangten die Pläne jedoch nicht; etwas fleckig, kleinere Randläsuren, in Summe von guter Erhaltung.

Zeitgenössischer, durch Klebemarke signierter ("O. Peterson Buchbinder Lüneburg") Ganzlederband über angedeuteten, falschen Bünden und mit etwas Rückenvergoldung. (17,7 x 8,5 cm) Kl.8°. - Eine kleine "Scheits-Bibel" der Sterne von "1731" mit insgesamt 76 blattgroßen, gestochenen Abbildungen - Nicht in VD18, nicht in BSB, WLB (Bibelsammlung) und SBB. In der vorliegenden Zusammenstellung bibliographisch, mit der u.g. Ausnahme (s. Schellmann), nicht nachweisbar, wie auch so für uns in keiner Bibliothek zu finden. Das zeitgenössische Leder stärker berieben und bestoßen, die Rückenvergoldung stellenweise abgeblättert, die äußeren Gelenke teilweise etwas eingerissen, die inneren schwach. Bis ca. Seite 260 im Alten Testament mit Wasserspuren. Teilweise sind die gedruckten Beschneidemarken in den seitlichen weißen Außenrändern noch sichtbar. Einzelne Seiten mit kleineren Knicken, bzw. Ab- und Ausrissen in den Ecken oder leicht braun-, bzw. fingerfleckig. Resteverwertung à la Stern, bereits vorhandene ältere Drucke, natürlich hauptsächlich des Alten und des Neuen Testaments wurden mit dazu passenden weiteren Texten und neu gedruckten Titelblättern, durch die Beigabe von neuen Kupfern zu einer neuen Bibel-Ausgabe zusammenmontiert. Die Druckermarke mit dem Motto ("Maledictus Vir, qui confidit Homini." = Verflucht der Mann, der sich auf die Menschen verläßt), nach Jeremia 17, 5. Trotz einer wohl ursprünglich sehr hohen Auflage dennoch sehr seltene, verkleinerte erste "Nachauflage" der Scheits-Bibel in Folio von 1672, vergl. hierzu den Aufsatz von Wolfgang Schellmann zur "Klischeeverwendung vom 16. bis 18. Jahrhundert im Bibledruck", S. 160, Anmerkung 27, in: "Archiv für die Geschichte des Buchwesens", Band 65, Berlin 2010. So wohl nur 1731 und 1762 "mit verkleinerten Kupfern als Beiheftung" nach Matthias Scheits in Oktav erschienen. Interessant sind darüberhinaus die ausführlichen Erläuterungen und Berechnungen Schellmanns, ebenfalls im AGB, Band 71 (2016) an Hand eines Lagerbuches der Sterne zur fraglichen Zeit ("Betriebswirtschaftliche Analyse eines Lagerbuchs aus dem Buchgewerbe des frühen 18.Jahrhundert") in dem sehr schön herausgearbeitet wird, wie der Produktionsvorgang der einzelnen Drucke aussah. Es wurden zu einem bestimmten Zeitpunkt Texte gedruckt, die auf Lager genommen wurden, erst bei Bedarf wurde das einzelne Buch "complet gemacht", die Zusammenstellung einzelner, auf Lager liegender Texte durchaus unterschiedlicher Produktionsjahre zu einem kompletten Buch, begann. Schellmann a.a.O., S. 68: ". Die Nr. 17 war eine sehr handliche Vollbibel in kl.-8°, zu der das Lagerbuch angibt, dass sie 1731 nur komplett gemacht wurde, aber das gleich in der für Bibeln ungewöhnlich hohen Stückzahl von 4.988 Exemplaren, sodass man dahinter eine eigene Auflage vermuten muss. Folgerichtig findet man auf dem Haupttitel der Originalausgabe und auch auf dem Zwischentitel zu den Propheten [wie auch dem zu den Apokryphen! CS] das Jahr 1731 eingedruckt. Auch dieser Ausgabe war kein wirklicher Erfolg beschieden. Deren Verkauf lief äußerst schleppend, und 22 Jahre später lag noch immer ein Drittel

        Sethos : histoire ou vie, tirée des monumens anecdotes de l'ancienne Egypte, Traduite d'un Manuscrit Grec. 2-vol. set (Complete)

      Hypolite-Louis Guerin, Paris 1731 - 24mo (6 x 3 1/2"). [2], xxii, 562, xpp (Vol. 1); 628pp (Vol. 2). Original full spotted calf, with gold lettering and tooling to spine. Raised bands. Marbled endpapers. Publisher's device on title pages. Decorative headpieces and initials. Ribbon markers. When first published in 1731, Jean Terrasson's fantasy novel "Sethos" knew a real success and popularized the notion of "Egyptian mysteries." Terrasson presents the story of Sethos as a work of fiction that he says he drew from a Greek manuscript of an unknown author, who himself would have drawn from Egyptian sources. In arguing that its composition is far before the deciphering of hieroglyphics, Egyptologists do not give it any historical value. Terrasson helped to create the mystified image of a fictional ancient Egypt, the mother of science and knowledge, based on uncritical stories by Diodorus Siculus, an image to which several other writers had contributed before the deciphering of hieroglyphs, like Athanasius Kircher. This image was at the origin of pseudo-scientific theories, such as Afrocentrism, claiming that Greek knowledge comes from Egypt. This fiction elided Masonic and ancient Egyptian ritual, and served as an inspiration for Mozart and Schikaneder's Magic Flute. Bindings partly rubbed, with some abrasion to leather at head and tail of spines. First volume with previous owner's name on inside of front free endpaper, and at verso of fly leaf. Closed tear at lower half of pages 513 to 526. Contemporary previous owner's signature at lower margin of last leaf. Title of second volume with previous owner's stamp dated 1792 along fore-edge. Text in French. Binding in overall good-, interior in good to very good condition. About the author: Jean Terrasson (1670-1750), often referred to as the Abbé Terrasson, was a French priest, author and member of the Académie française. The erudite Antoine Terrasson was his nephew.

        Descriptiones tubulorum marinorum : in quorum censum relati lapides caudæ cancri Gesneri, & his similes : Belemnitæ, eorum que alueoli, secundum dispositionem musei Kleiniani : addita est Dissertatio epistolaris de pilis marinis : cum figuris.

      Knochium, Danzig 1731 - A Very Good copy of the RARE TO THE MARKET FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING of Descriptiones Tabulorum Marinorum : In Qvorum Censum Relati Lapides Caudæ Cancri Gesneri, & his similes; Belemnitæ ; Eorumqve Alveoli. Secundum Ddispositionem Musei Kleiniani : addita est Dissertatio epistolaris de pilis marinis : cum figuris; complete with all 10 illustrations to the rear. Jacob Theodor Klein (1685 - 1759) was a German Botanist, Zoologist, Mathematician, Historian, and Jurist, as well as a Diplomat in service to Polish King August II the Strong. Klein's work in natural science was highly-regarded, and he was awarded membership in a number of scientific societies, including in The President, Council and Fellows of the Royal Society of London for Improving Knowledge (generally referred to as the "Royal Society" -- a Society which still exists and the purpose of which is to promote science and its benefits, recognize excellence in science, support outstanding science, provide scientific advice of policy, foster international and global cooperation, and to provide education and public engagement) and in the Danzig Research Society, a highly-regarded Society founded in Danzig by Daniel Gralath (1708 - 1767), Jacob Theodor Klein's son-in-law. Notable members included Nathanael Matthaeus von Wolf, Michael Christoph Hanow, Gottfried Lengnich, Johann Jacob Mascov, and Daniel Gabriel Farenheit. While the book 117 WorldCat member libraries in various forms, WorldCat reveals only 21 copies of the 1731 first edition held in book form. A well-received and notable work, at least 31 editions were published beginning with the first edition in 1731. Given that WorldCat shows relatively few copies from the 1700s being held in book form -- and only 21 copies of the first edition, first printing being held in book form -- we conclude that the first edition was not published in large numbers. Not only being SCARCE, this copy has a REMARKABLE PROVENANCE having belonged to Charles Atwood Kofoid (1865-1947) the prominent American zoologist known for his collection and classification of many new species of marine protozoans which established marine biology on a systematic basis. An interesting Biographical Memoir of Kofoid by Richard B. Goldschmidt was published by the National Academy of Sciences. His bookplate graces the volume's front pastedown. The book thereafter belonged to John Sinkankas, a noted gemologist, gem carver and gem faceter, as well as the author of numerous books and articles on minerals and gemstones. Sinkankas also was a bookseller and bibliographer of rare books. His signed bookplate also is affixed (with that of Charles Atwood Kofind) to the front pastedown.

Title page of The Universal Passion printed in red and black. With 2 engraved frontispieces. Octavo. First editions of Achilles, The Universal Passion, Gustavus Vasa, Edward and Eleonora and The Tragedy of Tragedies, second edition of Woman's Revenge and the third edition of The Toy-Shop (full details below). A collection of seven plays, including four comedies, two tragedies and an opera, owned by the actor and playwright David Garrick (1717-1779), with his bookplate to the front pastedown. Garrick moved to London in 1737 and wrote his first play, Lethe, in 1740. With a contemporary handwritten list of contents to the first blank (not in Garrick's hand). The works include Fielding's Tragedy of Tragedies, a reworking of his scarce 1730 work Tom Thumb, and his only play to feature a frontispiece; which is after his friend, William Hogarth. This collection also includes Brooke's tragedy, Gustavus Vasa, which was the first play to be banned by the Licensing Act of 1737, and The Toy-Shop, a satirical farce by Robert Dodsley, with whom Garrick had correspondence in later years.Garrick had an extensive library "of play-texts which served both to enhance Drury Lane's repertory and to satisfy his bibliomania" (ODNB). In 1780 his estate bequeathed 1,300 individual and collected plays to the British Museum; which constituted 90 per cent of all English plays in the Museum until the arrival of King George III's Library in 1828. This work was not donated at that time however, with a note marking the purchase of the book during the sale of Garrick's library by "Mr Saunders in Fleet Street" on the 30 April 1823, to the second blank.a) Dodsley, Robert, The Toy-Shop, A Dramatick Satire, printed for Lawton Gilliver, 1735;b) [Fielding, H.] The Tragedy of Tragedies, J.

        The present state of the Cape of Good-Hope: or, a particular account of the several nations of the Hottentots . Together with a short account of the Dutch settlement at the Cape. Written originally in High German, by Peter Kolben . Done into English . by Mr. Medley .

      London Printed for W. Innys 1731 - First edition in English. 2 volumes, 8vo., 2 engraved frontispieces, folding engraved map, 28 plates, 2 folding. Contemporary tree calf gilt, spines in six compartments, red and green labels to second and fourth, others with nautical gilt motif, gilt dividers, light wear, numbering labels renewed, an excellent set. A most attractive example of one of the most important early accounts of the Cape. "It contains the earliest list of South African animals . a full account of the government of the country, with detailed descriptions of the various settlements, and a mass of information respecting . the native races" (Mendelssohn). Peter Kolbe (1675–1726) (also referred to as Kolb) was sent to the Cape of Good Hope with letters of introduction from Nicolaas Witsen, mayor of Amsterdam, with a mandate to compile a comprehensive description of South Africa and for astronomical and surveying research. Kolbe was appointed in 1705 as the first official astronomer in South Africa and worked at the Cape between 1705 and 1713, providing a detailed account of day-to-day life at the Cape, also describing the geography, climate, flora and fauna, followed by an accurate study of the Hottentots, covering their language, religion, lifestyle and customs. Kolbe's account was first published in German in Nuremberg in 1719. Although his ethnological views are very much of their time, the work is important for showing us the interaction of of ethnic groups at the Cape in the early eighteenth century and provides a starting point for ethnological investigations into African history and culture (See Bloomsbury Dictionary of Eighteenth century German Philosophers).

Erste Ausgabe. 2 Teile in 2 Bänden.

Titelvignetten, 14 Kupfertafeln (7 gefaltet), 1 gefalt. Stammtafel, 1 Plan, zahlr. Textkupfern (meist Münzkupfer) und einigen gestochenen Vignetten; Titeleien in Schwarz und Rot. 2° (31,5 x 20 cm). Schweinslederbände (auf Holzdeckeln) mit reicher Blindprägung, auf 5 Bünden und mit jeweils 2 intakten Messing-Leder-Schließen. Etwas berieben und fleckig; insges. ca. 30 Bl. mit schwachem Wasserfleck im weißen Rand; Bd I mit sehr geringen Wurmfraßspuren am oberen Kapital und hs. Besitzvermerk auf Titelei (datiert 1809); Titelei von Bd II knapp beschnitten, Schmutztitel hier mit kleinen hinterlegten Fehlstellen; Innengelenke beider Bände mit schmalen Papierstreifen verstärkt. Provenienz: Auf Innenspiegel von Bd I mit dem gest. Wappenexlibris "Ex bibliotheca Theodori Karajan" - es handelt sich um den Historiker und Germanisten Theodor Georg Ritter von Karajan (1810-1873), dem Urgroßvater des nachmaligen Dirigenten Herbert von Karajan. Die reiche barocke Blindprägung der Einbände mit floralen Rollen- und Plattenstempeln, die Verstärkung der Innengelenke, die Beschneidung der Titelei sowie die signifikant frischeren Abzüge der Kupfer im Band II bieten Raum für verschiedene Vermutungen: - die beiden Bände sind nicht zeitgleich und/oder nicht in derselben Auflagenhöhe erschienen; - die Buchblöcke und die Einbände sind erst später (im 19. Jhdt?) zueinander gekommen, denn diese sind anscheinend 100 Jahre älter als der Inhalt. Im 20. Jhdt wurde zusätzlich ein marmorierter Pappschuber angefertigt. Die Datierung der Erscheinung dieses Werkes muß, anders als im Impressum mit 1729 angegeben, 1731 lauten, denn: "Anno 1730. die 9. Februarii post horam septimam matuatinam (.) placidissime in Christo obdormivit Perillustris Dominus, Joannes Georgius ab Eckhart". Das heißt, das Werk erschien unvollendet und posthum, worauf schon Jöcher (vol. II, 269f) hinweist. Kein in der Literatur, im Handel oder in öffentlichen Sammlungen beschriebenes Exemplar hat diesselbe Kollation mit der angegebenen Anzahl von Tafeln wie das vorliegende, was zusammen mit der Frische der Abzüge ein weiterer Hinweis sein mag, dass vol. II nicht zusammen mit vol. I bzw. nicht in allen Exemplaren mit derselben Tafelanzahl erschienen ist. Die Tafeln im Übrigen stammen von Johann Salver (1670-1738; vgl. Thieme/B. 29, 360). J. G. Eccard (1674 in Duingen bei Hildesheim - 1730 Würzburg), Historiker, ab 1694 Mitarbeiter/Sekretär von Leibniz, auf dessen Betreiben seit 1704 Professor für Geschichte in Helmstedt, nach Leibniz' Tod 1716 Übernahme von dessen Stelle als Historiograph und Bibliothekar in Hannover, floh 1723, vermutlich wegen Schulden, vor der Verfolgung durch die Justiz nach Würzburg, konvertierte zum Katholizismus und reüssierte erneut als Bibliothekar, Archivar und Historiker. Im vorliegenden Werk - es blieb unvollständig und der Berichtszeitraum reicht bis zur Regierungszeit Konrads I - gibt Eccard in der Behandlung des weitgefassten Themas ein Beispiel seiner quellkritischen Methode, die insgesamt seine Bedeutung als Historiker auch bei seinen zahlr. anderen Schriften begründet. "Die Geschichte des Bistums, er sieht das Würzburger Gebiet als Ursprungsland der Franken an, wird in engster Verbindung mit der Reichsgeschichte dargestellt. (.) Besondere Beachtung verdient seine Erstausgabe des Hildebrandliedes im 1. Band seiner Commentarii (S. 864-902)" (NDB 4, 270f). Die Kasseler Handschrift des Hildebrandliedes wird in Übersetzungen und ausührlichen Kommentaren als herausragendes Dokument der deutschen Sprache und Geschichte insgesamt gewürdigt.
