self-published. 1994. First edition. . Hard cover. Very good in very good dust jacket. corner slightly bumped. 195 p. Includes illustrations. . At the height of the Peranakan cultural richness between 1910 and 1930, locally carved teak furniture gilded in gold leaf were favoured by wealthier Peranakan families. These "brown and gold" pieces, conceived usually on a grand scal for homes of almost palatial dimensions, displayed intricate designs of equally lavish splendour. A recent revival of interest in collecting these rare and beautiful pieces now ensures the survival of this rich cultural legacy. Brown & Gold features some 80 such pieces found in Singapore, from majestic two-tiered cabinets, wardrobes and sideboards to miniature handkerchief cupboards. ., self-published, 1994, likely Paris, early 19th century. 77pp. Manuscript on paper, in French, written in a uniform script in a significantly later hand (c.1800), docketed “copie d’un ecrit de cet auteur” the manuscript is a complete transcription of a fair copy of an astrological treatise (which first appeared in 1555) written by prominent French astrologer and doctor Jacques de Viard; according to the dedication it was first transcribed in 1573 or 1574 when Viard would have been 56 years old. Containing three pen and ink diagrams depicting the twelve astrological houses with signs for the planetary rulership and planetary joys. Original 19th century wrappers; (edges uniformly browned, slightly brittle). The treatise is dedicated to Charles IX of France (1550-1574) who, at the time of the original transcription (c.1573) would have been suffering with tuberculosis and in his last year of life. The text was possibly revived at the request of the ailing king who, like many of his peers, relied on astrology to predict the future and distinguish the true from the false in their lives. This 19th century copy is an important record and is confirmation of the existence of this text. Jacques de Viard describes himself as, “Docteur en chacune faculté: Astrophil, Medecin, Conseiller et Phisiologue ordinaire du Roy et de la Royne,” and was an advisor who was intimately associated with the French court. Viard had also published the Fatal Diurnal (1567), a philosophical work, which associated him with the prophetic Nostradamus. Nostradamus (b.1503), a French physician and astrologer, was the official court physician King Charles IX from 1564 until his death in 1566. It is possible Viard had become “acting” physician-in-ordinary or counselor to the King after Nostradamus’ death. Undeniably, Viard was part of that circle in which prophecies, horoscope, and conspiracies dominated 16th century; astrology and sky observations played an important role in the courts of Europe at this time. This rare treatise is a fine example which confirms these popular notions. It is an exceptional survival of Viard’s collected studies on astrology. Viard’s treatise is dominated by the traditional division of astrology systems into twelve houses (the horoscopes) whose positions depend on time and location rather than on date. Furthermore, the houses are also grouped together by Triplicity, a theory which places one of the four elements (fire, earth, air, and water) in the zodiac sign which it rules. It is possible Viard may have tried to give new elements or theories in his treatise for this branch of astrology in order to satisfy one of the King’s last requests. Rare transcription from a fair copy of an important 16th century astrological text by Jacques de Viard. Made for or associated with the royal court of King Charles IX of France., xxiii, 341 pp. 9 3/8 x 6 1/2. Original blue cloth, gilt titles & top page ridge. Map showing the position of the Southern Appalachians is present opposite title page -- the area spans Maryland, Virginia & West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. Includes a wonderful bibliography of important works on folk music. ABOUT THE AUTHORS: Olive Dame Campbell (born 1882; died 1954) was an American folklorist. Born Olive Arnold Dame in West Medford, Massachusetts, she married John C. Campbell, American educator, in 1907. After his death, she co-founded and directed the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, North Carolina in 1925. Further, she helped in the formation of the Southern Highland Craft Guild. After a 1909 grant, she compiled Tennessee and Kentucky folk song lyrics with her husband. These were published in the seminal work, English Folk Songs from the Southern Appalachians by Cecil Sharp and Olive Campbell (1917, New York). Cecil James Sharp (22 November 1859 - 23 June 1924) was the founding father of the folklore revival in England in the early twentieth century, and many of England's traditional dances and music owe their continuing existence to his work in recording and publishing them. During the years of the First World War, Sharp found it difficult to support himself through his customary efforts at lecturing and writing, and decided to make an extended visit to the United States. The visit, made with his collaborator Maud Karpeles during the years 1916-1918, was a great success. Large audiences came to hear Sharp lecture about folk music, and Sharp also took the opportunity to do field work on English folk songs that had survived in the more remote regions of the southern Appalachian Mountains, pursuing a line of research pioneered by Olive Dame Campbell. Traveling through the mountains of Virginia, North Carolina, Kentucky, and Tennessee, Sharp and Karpeles recorded a treasure trove of folk songs, many using the pentatonic scale and many in versions quite different from those Sharp had collected in rural England. Generally, Sharp recorded the tunes, while Karpeles was responsible for the words. Sharp was greatly struck by the dignity, courtesy, and natural grace of the people who welcomed him and Karpeles in the Appalachians, and he defended their values and their way of life in print. Sharp's work in promoting English folk song dance traditions in the USA is carried on by the Country Dance and Song Society (CDSS).

34 - Merthyr Tydfil - H. W. White, 1827 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A rebound religious, Psalm book, with marble, paper covered boards. Iolo Morganwg (or Morgannwg in modern spelling) was the bardic name of Edward Williams (Llancarfan, Glamorgan, Wales 1747-1826), an influential antiquarian, poet, collector and literary forger. The name is Welsh for Ned of Glamorgan. Edward Williams spent his working life as a stonemason. It is as Iolo Morganwg that he is remembered, chiefly for his role in (re)creating modern bardic ritual and philosophy. His bardic teacher was Sin Bradford of Tir Iarll. Iolo first came to public notice by revealing some previously undiscovered poetry by Dafydd ap Gwilym, generally considered to be the greatest Welsh poet, in 1789. These poems were in fact forgeries, but survived critical attention for over hundred years. His success lead Iolo to move to London. Become a significant figure in the Welsh community there he held the first Gorsedd, Gorsedd Beirdd Ynys Prydain, at a ceremony in 1792 at Primrose Hill, London. He went on to author fairly substantial works (most of which are now considered forgeries) claiming that the ancient druidic tradition had survived intact in Wales, despite the Roman conquest, Christianity, the persecution of the bards under King Edward I, and other adversities. Iolo's philosophy represented a fusion of Christian and Arthurian influences, a proto-romanticism comparable to that of William Blake and the Scottish poet and forger James MacPherson, the revived antiquarian enthusiasm for all things Celtic, and such elements of bardic heritage as had genuinely survived among Welsh-language poets. Part of his aim was to assert the Welshness of the South, particularly his home region of Glamorgan, against the prevalent idea that North Wales represented the purest survival of Welsh traditions. Iolo was the author of the Druid's Prayer or Gorsedd prayer (Gweddi'r Derwydd or Gweddi'r Orsedd in Welsh), which is still a staple of the ritual of both gorseddau and Neo-Druidism. His metaphysics outlined a theory of concentric 'rings of existence', proceeding outward from Annwn (the Otherworld) through Abred and Ceugant to Gwynfyd (purity or Heaven). Among his writings was Cyfrinach Beirdd Ynys Prydain, or The Mystery of the Bards of the Isle of Britain (1829), a treatise on Welsh metrics. He also forged an extra set of Welsh Triads. Condition: The book has been rebound and consequently the binding is very tight and firm with both covers and all surviving, internal pages attached. There is no visible wear to the extremities. Internally there are new pastedowns and blank-end papers. The title page in addition to the first few pages of the first volume, and page 243 of the second volume, are missing. The first original page is page xix, with pages x to xii following. These pages, in addition to pages 244 to 248 of the second volume,have been repaired with archive paper as the original corners are missing. The majority of the texts on these pages are still intact. The remainingpages from page one of the first volume to page 248 of the second volume are all present. There are handling marks, brown age spots and stains throughout the book, although these do not generally affect the visibility of the text. A fe of the top outer corners of the book are creased There is a very faint number written in ink on the first two pages of the first volume.., 34 - Merthyr Tydfil - H. W.
