Geschichte des Oesterreich-Russischen und Türkischen Krieges, in den Jahren von 1787. bis 1792. Nebst Aktenstücken und Urkunden.
First and only edition, extremely rare, of this account of the Austro-Turkish War of 1788-1791, and of the concurrent Russo-Turkish war of 1787-92. It includes the full texts of the Treaty of Sistova of 4 August 1791 and of a separate convention attached to it, in both French and German. While the gains for Austria were meagre, the end of the Russo-Turkish war, sanctioned by the Treaty of Jassy of 9 January 1792, effectively left Russia in control of the Black Sea.

HOW TO USE A FLORILEGIUM MIRANDULA (or MIRANDOLA), Ottaviano.
Illustrium poetarum flores.
A remarkable copy, with numerous and eloquent contemporary annotations and additions in a French hand, of a scarce edition of an extremely popular collection of quotes and passages from classics of poetry, published by the renowned Flemish printer and composer Joannes Bellerus (Jean Bellère, 1526–1595). This florilegium, which arranges passages from twenty-two authors (including Ovid, Horace, Virgil, Lucretius, Catullus, and Ausonius) by theme and sets these themes out alphabetically for easy reference, had first appeared in 1513; its effective format and the breadth of its content had, by mid-century, ensured its popularity both as an item for private libraries, and as a school text.
QUINTILIAN, Marcus Fabius, and Jacques-Louis d’ESTREBAY (editor).

The title-page indicates that this is a third edition.; we have found one copy , at Châlons-en-Champagne, and a single copy of the 1557 second edition, at Lyon.
