Tilij, Briocensis of the bishop; copies of this edition of the manuscripts came from the Greek, the text has been torn out, and in countless places, with an improved, compared to the Latin the book deals with Canon Law and Oriental Catholic Churches, Apostolic Canons, Councils & Synods, Photius I, Saint, Patriarch of Constantinople, etc written by Theodore Balsamon Theodore Balsamon was a canonist of the Eastern Orthodox Church and 12th-century Eastern Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch Born in the second half of the 12th century at Constantinople; died there, after 1195 (Petit). He was ordained a deacon, appointed nomophylax, and from 1178 to 1183, under Patriarch Theodosius I, he had charge of all ecclesiastical trials or cases submitted to the Patriarchate. In 1193 he became the Patriarch of Antioch, though he remained resident in Constantinople. Balsamon's best work is his "Scholia" (c. 1170), a commentary on the Nomocanon of Photios, the standard work on Eastern Orthodox ecclesiastical and imperial laws and decrees, commissioned by the Emperor Manuel I and the Patriarch Michael III. In his "Scholia", Balsamon insists on existing laws, and dwells on the relation between canons and laws, ecclesiastical and civil constitutions, giving precedence to the former. Balsamon also compiled a collection of ecclesiastical constitutions (Syntagma) and wrote other works, many of which concern the ongoing debate between the Eastern and Western Churches following the schism of 1054. Theodore's legacy is that he preserved the world?s knowledge of many otherwise unknown source documents from early Byzantine political and theological history. His commentaries are still referenced to this day by students of Eastern Orthodox canon law, and are published in official collection of canon law known as the Pedalion (Greek: ????????, "Rudder", so named because it is meant as a guide to "steer" the Church). Theodore also standardized the liturgical practices in usage in the Antiochian Church, to adopt the Byzantine Rite and to reject other Eastern Rites THE BOOK the book is bound in an old full leather binding titled in gilt to the spine, a large folio format measuring 14 inches by 9.5 inches approx.

Swinton and Knottingley Joint Railway Company Undated but possibly circa 1870s, this is a large old hand drawn map of the Railway line that ran from near the township of Adwick Upon Dearne in Yorkshire, the place names on the Map after that are Bolton Upon Dearne, Clayton, South & North Elmsall, South Kirkby, Badsworth, Ackworth, Pontefract, and finishing at Ferrybridge it appears to be the line proposed by the Swinton and Knottingley Joint Railway Company which I believe was opened in 1879 the map is mounted and divided into 20 panels and is over 70 inches in length and 10 inches high, part of the map folds out at an angle from the rest of the map as it follows the course of the railway line , the map is hand coloured and also has later handwritten annotations , it also records the ownership names of the pieces of land it passes through, like Earl Manvers, Sir T.H.S. Bunckman, Thomas Edward Taylor, Rev. John Allott, W.H.

At the time of his death, Wilkes was an Emeritus Professor of the University of Cambridge. In 1951, he developed the concept of microprogramming from the realisation that the central processing unit of a computer could be controlled by a miniature, highly specialised computer program in high-speed ROM. This concept greatly simplified CPU development. Microprogramming was first described at the University of Manchester Computer Inaugural Conference in 1951 Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall

LONDON LYRICS by FREDERICK LOCKER A Manuscript Fair Copy by R E Holmes with Original Notes and an Original Pen and ink Portrait of Frederick Locker

FREDERICK LOCKER This is an interesting item, a manuscript fair copy of Frederick Locker's Poetry book "London Lyrics", by a R E Holmes, the book runs to 149 numbered pages with some manuscript notes by Holmes at rear also inset is an original pen and ink portrait of Frederick Locker, and loosely inserted are five old photographs depicting ladies, either late Victorian or Early Edwardian interestingly one of the photos is of a woman with a book in her hands, and it does look like it could be this actual book she is holding with its plain cloth covers (see pictures) the book bound in cloth but lacking its spine covering measures 7 inches by 4.5 inches approx., front cover loosened but holding Frederick Locker-Lampson (1821-1895) was an English man of letters, bibliophile and poet. He was born at Greenwich Hospital. His father, who was Civil Commissioner of the Hospital, was Edward Hawke Locker, youngest son of the Captain William Locker who gave Nelson the memorable advice "to lay a Frenchman close, and beat him." His mother, Eleanor Mary Elizabeth Boucher, was a daughter of the Revd. Jonathan Boucher, vicar of Epsom and friend of George Washington In 1857 he published London Lyrics, a slender volume of 90 pages, which, with subsequent extensions, constitutes his poetical legacy. Lyra Elegantiarum (1867), an anthology of light and familiar verse, and Patchwork (1879), a book of extracts, were his only other publications in his lifetime. Chronic ill-health debarred Locker from any active part in life, but it did not prevent his delighting a wide circle of friends by his gifts as a host and raconteur, and from accumulating many treasures as a connoisseur. He was acquainted with practically all the major literary figures of the age, including Matthew Arnold, the Brownings, Carlyle, Dickens, George Eliot, Leigh Hunt, Ruskin, Tennyson, Thackeray and Trollope. He was also a mentor to the illustrator artists Randolph Caldecott and Kate Greenaway Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall
