    • Revivalism and Reconstructionism in Islamic Reform: Intellectual Trends in Modernist Maghribi Thought 

      Tais, M. Amine (Rabbi Myer and Dorothy Kripke Center, Creighton University. Omaha, Nebraska, 2019)
      Modernist Islamic thought has grown in a variety of ways for the last two centuries. This paper argues that two distinct directions can be detected in the works of contemporary Muslim thinkers in the Maghrib, namely ...
    • Forest Cathedrals: “The Hidden Glory” of Hudson River Landscapes 

      Ellis, James W. (Rabbi Myer and Dorothy Kripke Center, Creighton University. Omaha, Nebraska, 2019)
      This essay analyses masterpieces of Hudson River School landscape painting within relevant religious, artistic, and literary contexts. The Hudson River School, America’s first indigenous art movement, included Thomas Cole, ...
    • Selfies as Secular Religion: Transcending the Self 

      Nygaard, Mathias Ephraim (Rabbi Myer and Dorothy Kripke Center, Creighton University. Omaha, Nebraska, 2019)
      This article argues that contemporary selfie-practice sometimes display patterns that have otherwise been associated with religion. Selfies manifesting ideals, or with a more crude description bragging-selfies, can be shown ...
    • Fables de Florian 

      Florian (J. Langlumé et Peltier. Paris, 1840)
      This book matches in all its particulars Bodemann #293.1, including the notation that the book does not show a date. The book appeared at a time when Florian's appeal seems to have been at a peak. These publishers or ...
    • Krilof and His Fables 

      Ralston, W.R.S. (Strahan & Co.. London, 1869)
      Here is a copy of an early -- perhaps the earliest? -- edition of Krylov's fables. There is perhaps an issue: Did his original edition appear in 1868 or 1869? This edition, in any case, is dated 1869 on its title-page. ...
    • Fables de Florian 

      Florian, Jean-Pierre Claris de (Antoine Auguste Renouard. Paris, 1812)
      Here is the poorer of two better copies of a book already brought into the collection a year earlier from Richard Sharp Books, Kent, UK, through eBay. Both of these copies were printed by the printer listed by Bodemann ...

      Florian, Jean-Pierre Claris de (Antoine Auguste Renouard. Paris, 1812)

    • Fables de Florian 

      Florian (Lehuby. Paris, 1846)
      Here is yet another Florian edition coming towards the end of a period in which his fables were frequently published. This 1846 copy seems to be a reprinting of Bodemann #300.2, which Lehuby reprinted in 1843 from its ...
    • Fables de Florian 

      Florian, Jean-Pierre Claris de (Antoine Auguste Renouard. Paris, 1812)
      Here is a hardbound copy in better condition than a board-bound book already in the collection. One has to be careful with this particular book because Renouard published two different editions of Florian in 1812. This ...
    • Fables de Florian 

      Florian (F. Louis, Libraire. Paris, 1807)
      Here is a direct descendant of Florian's first edition in 1792. It has been a delight to compare the two books. This little book belongs between Bodemann #179.3 and #179.4. Before I mention the similarities, let me note ...
    • Fables for Children (Cover: Picture Fables) 

      Leavitt and Allen (Leavitt and Allen. NY, 1860)
      This book is strange for a number of reasons. First, not so surprisingly, it has a different title on its cover, "Picture Fables," than on its title-page, "Fables for Children." Secondly, I can find no information on it ...
    • Fables de Florian 

      Florian (Ledentu Libraire. Paris, 1832)
      This small book (3½" x 5¼") is a curious publication by Ledentu 1832. It is one of a number of Florian editions to appear about this time: Comynet (1830, 1832); Victor Adam (1838); Langlumé et Peltier (1840); Tastu (1841); ...
    • Fables Ancient and Modern Adapted for the Use of Children from Three to Eight Years of Age 

      Baldwin, Edward; Goodwin, William (Thomas Hodgkins. London, 1805)
      A terrific find. This is Volume II of the first edition, published as the cover says in 1805. So far I find few records or images of this first edition on line. An early edition mentioned online is the 1807 second ...
    • Fables de La Fontaine II 

      La Fontaine, Jean de (La Bonne Compagnie. Paris, 1946)
      Here is a second copy of this beautiful book. In keeping with my usual procedure, I include second copies of numbered books. This collection already includes the pair of volumes found perhaps at Magers and Quinn in 1995. ...
    • Fables de La Fontaine I 

      La Fontaine, Jean de (La Bonne Compagnie. Paris, 1946)

      Biro, Val (Award Publications Limited. Worksop, Nottinghamshire, 2013)
      Award Publications had already published a pamphlet of these two stories illustrated by Biro in 2001. Now it comes out in a large print edition meant for children. The size is the same (8½" x 9½") but the print is larger. ...
