Here's what joined the shelves this week:
- Another copy of Les Avantures de Telemaque, this one published by Jean Christian Wohler at either Ulm or Augsburg in 1751 and printed by Theophile Mæntler at Esslingen, with German commentary by Joseph Anton von Ehrenreich (the first edition with Ehrenreich's commentary was published in 1736, also by Wohler). Twentieth-century ownership inscription by "Henry F. Howe" on the front flyleaf. A curious copy, with a damaged copy of the folding map tipped in at the front, and another (also damaged) copy following Ehrenreich's introduction. eBay.
