618 Chevalier, Etienne Etienne Chevalier's Book of Hours. The Fouquets of the Condé Museum at Chantilly.
Paris, France. NYC Editions n. d. @1940's. Blue hard cover book, with padded pebbled cloth Good. Quarto 
Unpaginated (24 pages). The book is illustrated by 11 tipped in color gravure plates. Each plate faces the page containing its brief description, which is in fact, the verso of the preceding plate.

"Jean Fouquet is situated between the brothers Limbourg, who worked at the beginning of the fifteenth century for Jean Duc de Berri, and Jean Colombe, who, at the end of the same century, completed the greatest of the illuminated manuscripts the Limbourgs had started, Les Tres Riches Heures of this noble lord. This period marks the apogee of the art of the miniature in France, the attainment of an unsurpassed degree of perfection.

Between Flemish art, which spread to Burgundy, and the art of Italy, Jean Fouquet, who was assuredly acquainted with the work of the Limbourgs and who probably traveled to Italy, has left, like a good Tourangeau, the imprint of his French genius on this refined, delicate and at time powerful art, and has enriched it with some of its purest masterpieces."

The two page Introduction by Henri Malo, (Curator of the Condé Museum), recounts the horrifying story of the loss and destruction of this beautiful Hours in 1630, the subsequent locating of the individual pages--often one at a time--followed by its painstaking reconstruction.

349 pp "William Butler Yeats conceived The Shadowy Waters around 1883 when he was in his late teens some eighteen years before it was first published as a dramatic poem in 1900. It was not produced as a play until 1904. In this volume the editors bring together prepublication drafts of the unique play - until now dispersed an d uncorrelated - which show the revisions Yeats made during those twenty some years. Even in this formative period when developing as poet and playwright, Yeats's interest in mythology, and his attempt to penetrate its meaning and to associate mythology and vision is evident."

332 pp "In spite of having Admiral Nelson testify in his defense, Colonel Edward Marcus Despard went to the scaffold in 1803, accused of treason and plotting to assassinate King George III. Despard's execution ended a life of adventure and intrigue, and a career that encompassed the American Revolution, the Irish Rebellion of 1798, and the French Revolutionary Wars. A Protestant Irishman accused of plotting with a circle of conspirators within the Brigade of Guards to assassinate the King of England would seem to be of obvious interest to historians and biographers, but such has not been the case."

First published apothecary by authority by the senate of Nuremburg in 1546, posthumously. It includes some chemical remedies as well as recipe for ether. In the middle 1500's attempts were made to standardize early pharmacological literature by authorities in charge of public health. In Latin.

"Valerius Cordus (18 February 1515 – 25 September 1544) was a German physician and botanist who authored one of the greatest pharmacopoeias and one of the most celebrated herbals in history. He is also widely credited with having pioneered a method for synthesizing ether (which he called oleum dulce vitrioli, or "sweet oil of vitriol"). Cordus wrote prolifically, and also identified and described several new plant species. The plant genus Cordia is named in honor of him.

The son of an ardent Lutheran convert, Valerius Cordus was born in Kassel. He began his higher education in 1527, at the young age of 12, studying botany and pharmacy under the tutelage of his father, Professor Euricius Cordus, M.D. In the same year he also enrolled at the University of Marburg; he completed his bachelor's degree in 1531. From then until 1539, he furthered his studies by working at an apothecary shop owned by his uncle (either Johannes or Joachim) in Leipzig, and enrolling in the University of Leipzig.

In 1539 he relocated to the University of Wittenberg, where he lectured and studied medicine. His lectures proved popular, and Cordus' lecture notes were published posthumously in 1549 as Annotations on Dioscorides. Among the research outlined in the lectures were the results of his own systematic observations of many of the same plants described by Pedanius Dioscorides in the 1st century CE. Direct observation of live specimens was one of Cordus' strengths.

In 1540 Cordus discovered and described a revolutionary technique for synthesizing ether, which involved adding sulfuric acid to ethyl alcohol.

In 1542 he began travelling back and forth between Germany and Italy for his research and studies, and also presented his great pharmacopoeia, Dispensatorium, to the Nuremberg city council. The council presented him with 100 gold guilders following the presentation, and published the work posthumously as a book in 1546.

The University of Wittenberg awarded him a medical degree in 1544, the same year that his great herbal in five volumes, Historia Plantarum, was published — a work unique at the time for its balanced analysis of interest not only to botanists, but to pharmacists and herbalists as well.

Later that same year, at the age of 29, Cordus died of malaria while in Rome. Throughout his short life, Valerius travelled extensively, visited many universities, and was widely acclaimed by his colleagues and other associates. He was an impressive linguist, and also spoke eloquently on philosophy. As a botanist, he observed with a breadth and depth that surpassed most of his contemporaries; as a scientist, his methodology was systematic and thorough. Summa Gallicana

"The story of the Habsburgs is no less than the story of Austria and the formation of all Europe as we know it. For nearly 650 years this extraordinary family contrived to back their considerable territory with the quasi-mystical authority of the Imperial crown; at times they came close to dominating half the world. There was a brooding quality about many of the Habsburgs which distinguished them as monarchs and enhanced the image of their power, an image compounded largely of Catholic bigotry and Imperial reaction. The absence of great outward show not only made the power embodied in a single ruler seem all the more terrible."
