Item Description: Venice, Erhard Ratdolt, 16. I. 1482., 1482. 4to. 32 ff. Title page printed in red and black. With 2 woodcut diagrams and 8 tables in the text; white-vine initials in two sizes, lombardic initials (many coloured in red). Rubricated. Recent full vellum. Second edition of the author's principal work, originally published at Mantua in 1473. Al-Qabisi (also known as "Alchabitus" in the Latin tradition) flourished in Aleppo, Syria, in the middle of the 10th century. Although his education was primarily in geometry and astronomy, his principal surviving treatise, "Madkhal" (here in the Latin translation of Joanis Hispalensis prepared in 1144), is an introductory exposition of some of the fundamental principles of genethlialogy (the astrological science of casting nativities, or divination as to the destinies of newborns). The "Madkhal" in its Latin version was published many times in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. - Bookplate of joint collectors Rudolf Hugo Driessen (1873-1957) and Caroline E. F. Kleyn (1883-1933). Outer margin of first leaf slightly frayed; marginal annotation in red ink on its verso (slightly trimmed by binder's knife).

Item Description: Venice, Petrus Liechtenstein, 1521., 1521. 4to. 64 ff. With several diagrams and woodcut initials in the text and the printer's full-page woodcut device on the final page, printed in red and black. Modern limp vellum with ties. "Early edition of Alchabitius' 'Introduction to the Mystery of Judgments from the Stars', with the 'modern' version by Antonius de Fantis. Sessa issued the same work at the same time, but Liechtenstein's edition is superior and especially esteemed for the fine woodcut in black and red (printer's mark) at the end" (Weil). Translated by Joannes Hispalensis (in 1144), with the commentary of Joannes de Saxonia. "Although al-Qabisi's education was primarily in geometry and astronomy, his principal surviving treatise, 'Al-madkhal ila sina'at ahkam al-nujum' ('Introduction into the Art of Astrology') in five sections [.], is on astrology. The book, as the title indicates, is an introductory exposition of some of the fundamental principles of genethlialogy; its present usefulness lies primarily in its quotations from the Sassanian Andarzghar literature and from al-Kindi, the Indians, Ptolemy, Dorotheus of Sidon, Masha'allah, Hermes Trismegistus, and Valens. Although completely lacking in originality, it was highly valued as a textbook [. The] Latin version was commented on by Joannes de Saxonia at Paris in 1331" (DSB). - Title slightly smudged; occasional waterstaining. From the library of Curt Wallin with his armorial bookplate on the pastedown. Rare; a single copy in auction records since 1975. Edit 16, CNCE 834. Adams A 24. BM-STC 1. BM I, 307. IA 102.864.

Written in the first half of the 11th century "its sources include a vast array of authorities, the citations from which make it one of an historian's most valuable possessions" (D. Pingree, Religion, Learning and Science in the Abbasid Period, pp. 299 f.) The Latin text was translated from the Old Castilian version made by Yehuda ben Moshe for King Alfonso X in 1254. The only surviving manuscript of the Old Castilian translation is MS 3605 at the National Library in Madrid, which however only contains 5 of the 8 books of the complete Old Castilian translation.

Item Description: Written and transcribed: c. 1757 (1170 AH)., Ottoman Empire, 1757. Contemporary full calf, expertly rebacked with six compartments of raised bands and gilt motifs, gilt red title label on two, all edges speckled red. , Ibrahim Haqqi Erzurumi Efendi (1703-1780) is considered an outstanding figure of 18th century Ottoman Turkey. He approached the domains of both religion and science as a means of approaching God, stemming from his immense knowledge of the Sufi branch of Islam as well as his studies in Western sciences. The Ma?rifat Namih is considered to be his greatest work (spelled variously as Marifatnama, Ma?rifatname, and Maarifat Nameh, with English translations of the title varying between ?The Book of Knowledge and Skills? and ?The Book of Gnossis?). It touches upon several subjects, such as theology, morality, mathematics, astronomy and medicine. It has been argued that Ibrahim Efendi was the first Muslim scholar to advocate post-Copernican astronomy, as depicted in the colourful world maps transcribed in this book and the proofs he offers in support of the concept. , Size : Small folio, (Although Arabic texts are written right-to-left, the foliation has been marked in pencil in Western numerals from left-to-right, which we will use in our description.)The manuscript was copied in Ottoman Turkish (Arabic Turkish) on thin, polished, cream-coloured paper. The title leaf has a green, blue, gold and red headpiece and its text is within double green borders, and a white flower decorates the margin. The last twelve pages (1-6) present an index with red lines and black script. The text is in fine naskh script with black and red inks within a red double-lined border, 31 lines of text within a written area of 232 x 112 mm, occasional red underlining, sections usually demarcated by a single word of red text on a line with a red border on either side. The fourth page (474v) has a green watercoloured border and green roundels in the text, and a six-pointed star in the left margin, coloured in red and green. There are 11 full-page colour illustrations of scientific diagrams (such as world maps and moon positions), 8 full-page coloured tables and 5 coloured half-page illustrations, as well as a round, black and red ink chart on leaf 448v. The manuscript was copied in Arabic on thin, polished, cream-coloured paper. The title leaf has a green, blue, gold and red headpiece and its text is within double green borders, and a white flower decorates the margin. The last twelve pages (1-6) present an index with red lines and black script. The text is in fine naskh script with black and red inks within a red double-lined border, 31 lines of text within a written area of 232 x 112 mm, occasional red underlining, sections usually demarcated by a single word of red text on a line with a red border on either side. The fourth page (474v) has a green watercoloured border and green roundels in the text, and a six-pointed star in the left margin, coloured in red and green. There are 11 full-page colour illustrations of scientific diagrams (such as globes and moon positions), 8 full-page coloured tables and 5 coloured half-page illustrations, as well as a round, black and red ink chart on leaf 448v. , References : Gulen, F. ?Key Concepts in the Practice of Sufism,? p. 106, n. 69; Virk, Z. ?Science and Technology in Ottoman Sultanate.? , Foliation. 2 ff., 474 ff., 2 ff. Occasional smudging of ink, minor offsetting on pages facing illustrations, leaves 7-11 with minor waterstains in the upper corner margins, leaves 12-18 expertly reinforced in the upper margin, with heavy loss to text in upper half of leaves 14v and 15r-v. Text appears to be lost on 378r (faint traces of text still remain). Leaves 343v-350v with dark pink stain in centre of text toward gutter (no loss), likewise on 443v-463v. Leaves 448-454 have had their margins reinforced. Leaves numbered 449 and 450 must be switched, as well as 453 and 454. Altogether a very good copy considering the uniqueness of the work and the fine detail of the illustrations. Bookseller Inventory # B3515

Item Description: Longman, London, 1816. Contemporary Half-Calf. Book Condition: Good. First English Edition. Volume I: xlii, 339 pp. steel engraved portrait frontispiece + 1 folding map of the Kingdom of Morocco, + 44 steel engraved plates / Volume II: ix, 373 pp; 36 steel engraved plates of which 2 are folding, Volume III: Atlas, 3 folding maps, 4 folding plates,marbled boards, lightly rubbed & bumped, marbled endpapers, title gilt on raised bands, scattered foxing, some foxed browning to map of morocco, stamps to fly leafs, bookplate of Henry B. H. Beaufoy verso front cover. Set complete. The Atlas contains three large folding maps: North Africa, Asia Minor and Arabia & The Red Sea. Plus three large folding plates: Plate 72 in 2 parts of El-Sahhara and one plate of El -Aksa. Badia y Leblich was a Spanish traveller who assumed the name Ali Bey El Abassi and disguised himself as an Arab. He seems to have been travelling as an agent of the Spanish government. In 1803 he departed for Tangier and travelled through North Africa to Egypt, where he met Chateaubriand in Alexandria. He continued on to Cyprus and had reached Mecca by the beginning of 1807, returning via Jerusalem, Damascus and Constantinople to Spain the same year. He joined the Napoleonic forces in the invasion of Spain, was forced to withdraw with them to France after their expulsion from the Peninsula, and was resident in Paris by 1813, which accounts for the fact that the first edition of this work was printed there. Heís commonly reported to have been a spy of Napoleon. Ali Bey was the first Christian to describe in some detail Mecca, and the mosque Omar in Jerusalem, as well as some little known aspects of Islam. After the publication of this work he planned a second journey under the name Ali Othman and returned to Syria, where he died suddenly at Aleppo, his disguise apparently having been penetrated. The plates in this work are mostly after designs by Ali Bey and include architectural plans, natural history subjects and views. In modern times scholars have demonstrated that he was actually very involved in the complex Spanish political events in the 1808-1810 period of the Peninsular War.

Item Description: Paris, R. Soubret, 1660., 1660. 8vo. 80 pp. 18th-century blind-ruled brown calf, blindstamped arms of William Stirling Maxwell on the upper cover and his blind cipher on the lower cover. Spine and vertical title label gilt; turn-ins gilt. Marbled flyleaves. All edges red. Green silk marker. First edition in a western language of the celebrated autobiographical lament of the poet, royal secretary, and soldier Al-Tughra'i, who rose to Vizier only to be beheaded. His elegy, "Lamiyyat al-'Adjam", is probably the first major work of Arabic poetry published in the west. The other significant early Arabic work here contains an offering of proverbs selected from the "Exalted Aphorisms" of the fourth Caliph Ali ibn Abi Talib (601-661), the only person born in Mecca's sacred Kaaba sanctuary, cousin and son-in-law of the prophet Muhammad. - The editor and Royal Interpreter for Arabic, Pierre Vattier (1623-47), translated these pieces into French for their stylistic elegance and textual importance. He held the Chair of Arabic at the Collège de France from 1658 until his death and contributed an extended opening essay on Arabic prosody, here in its only edition. - Front joint cracked, extremeties slightly bumped; title remargined at lower edge. Altogether a fine copy. Provenance: from the collection of the proverb bibliographer P. A. Gratet-Duplessis (1792-1853), recording the date of his acquisition (Lyon, 1828) and his paid price on the final flyleaf. In the sale of his library in 1856, the volume was described as a "joli exemplaire de ce curieux et rare petit volume" (p. 156, no. 969). A slightly later owner has quoted from Duplessis' bibliography on the second front flyleaf. Later bookplates of William Stirling Maxwell, Keir House, and Lt. Col. V. S. M. de Guinzbourg on pastedowns and flyleaf. Schnurrer 196. Zenker, BO 403. Cioranescu 65583. Gratet-Duplessis, Bibliographie parémiologique, 70. Moll, Sprichwörterbibliographie, 7624 ("1640" in error). Bookseller Inventory # 45555

Item Description: printed by J. Nichols for C. Dilly, London, 1782. Contemporary Cloth. Book Condition: Good. First Edition. (24 x 19.5 cm), Arabic and English text, [5] preface in English, +11 pages of Arabic text engraved on copper plates from an ancient manuscript, + [15] verbal transliteration of the manuscript pages, +[15] explanatory notes by William Jones, Esq. of the Middle Temple, new spine, some dust-soil to text, final leaf with a transverse discolouration, otherwise copy in very good condition. Jonesís work is a translation of Ibn al-Mulaqqinís "Bughyat al-Bahith" from Pocockeís Aleppo manuscript in the Bodleian. Jones sent a copy of his translation from his lodgings at University College, Oxford, to Edmund Burke. The accompanying letter, dated 17 March 1782, expressed his "preference of a seat in the Sedr Adalet [the chief court of appeal in civil suits] to a place in the supreme English court. on account of the use which I could make in it, of Arabic and Persian in explaining the Mahometan law". The fundamental object of Jonesís book was to aid British lawyers in their implementation of the East India Judicature Act, which stated that in all cases involving "inheritance and succession to lands, rents, and good, and all matters of contract and dealing between party and party, shall be determined in the case of Mahomedans. by the law and usage of Mahomedan". Jones was thus well advanced in his ambition; he stated to Edward Gibbon that "I might become a good Mohamedan lawyer before I reach Calcutta". [Representing India, Volume IX, Introduction]. A rare work of Anglo-Arabian scholarship, with no copies recorded at auction and very few in institutions. Sir William Jones (1746Ė1794) was an English philologist, Orientalist, and jurist. While serving as a judge of the high court in Calcutta, he became a student of ancient India and founded the Asiatic Society of Bengal. Jones entered University College, Oxford, in 1764. He had already developed a reputation for his impressive scholarship, and university enabled him to increase his knowledge of Middle Eastern studies, philosophy, Oriental literature, Greek and Hebrew. For financial reasons Jones also began studying law, entering London's Middle Temple in 1770, but he continued working on translations. He wrote a translation of seven famous pre-Islamic Arabic odes called The Moíallakát. His translation, published in 1782, would influence Alfred Lord Tennyson and later important poets. In addition to establishing the Asiatic Society of Bengal, Jones felt compelled to learn Sanskrit so that he could better prepare himself to understand Hindu and Muslim laws. This led to an enormous personal project: the compilation of all such laws. The task was so huge that he was unable to complete it before he died. However, he did publish portions, including Institutes of Hindu Law, or the Ordinances of Menu, Mohammedan Law of Succession to Property of Intestates and Mohammedan Law of Inheritance. He also published numerous works on India, covering a variety of topics including law, art, music, literature, botany and geography. Size: Small Folio. Bookseller Inventory # 012055

Item Description: 1996. LEIFER, Neil. Large original color photograph signed. Manila, Philippines: no publisher, October 1, 1975 (printed September 3, 1996). Poster-sized photographic print (sheet measures 20 inches by 24 inches), signed beneath the image. $6800.Extraordinary poster-size color photograph of Smokin' Joe Frazier taking a punishing straight right hand from Muhammad Ali during the late rounds of the "Thrilla in Manila," one of only 24 signed by both Ali and Frazier and the photographer Leifer, from the total edition of only 350 copies printed.October 1, 1975 was the third time that Smokin' Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali clashed, each having beaten the other once before. The "Thrilla in Manila" was a highpoint in Ali's fascinating career, and is ranked by many as the greatest Heavyweight Championship fight of all-time. After a brutal, punishing battle, Joe Frazier could not answer the bell for the 15th round, and Ali won by TKO. This image, shot by renowned sports photographer Neil Leifer, perfectly captures the passion of that Titanic match. Leifer chronicled Ali throughout his career and captured many of the defining images of "The Greatest"- such as the present photograph. "There's no sport I enjoy photographing as much as boxing," admits Leifer. "The atmosphere of a big-time fight-the crowd, the fashion show, all the celebrities- is electric. Over the last 42 years, I've shot almost every major fight and every major fighter. But my favorite subject, no matter what the sport, was and still is Muhammad Ali." Number 66 of only 350 copies, Muhammad Ali signed only 35 copies, and of those 35 copies, only 24 are additionally signed by Frazier. Fine condition. An extraordinary multiply-signed photograph. Signed. Bookseller Inventory # 104389
