Item Description: Basel, Eusebius Episcopius & heirs of Nicolaus Episcopius, (August) 1572., 1572. Folio (248 x 350 mm). 2 parts in 1 vol. 1st blank f., (6), 288 pp. (8), 474, (2) pp. With 2 different woodcut printer's devices on t. p. and colophon, half-page woodcut on reverse of t. p. (repeated on half-title of pt. 2), and numerous diagrams in the text. Near-contemporary full vellum binding with giltstamped red spine label. All edges sprinkled in red. First edition of "the most important work of its kind in Arabic literature" (cf. Poggendorf). Ibn al-Haytham (965-c. 1040), known as Alhazen in the Latin tradition, has been hailed as "the greatest Muslim physicist and one of the greatest students of optics of all times [.] The Latin translation [.] exerted a great influence upon Western science. It showed a great progress in experimental method. [Alhazen's book contains] research in catoptrics, [a] study of atmospheric refraction, [a] better description of the eye, and better understanding of vision [as well as an] attempt to explain binocular vision [and the] earliest use of the camera obscura" (Sarton). "This combined edition served as the standard reference work on optics well into the 17th century, influencing scientists such as Brahe, Kepler, Galileo, and Descartes" (Norman). "The Arab physicist Alhazen preserved for us all that was known by the ancients in the field of optics and added some contributions of his own. His book remained a standard authority thru the 1600s. He understood that light emanated spherically from a point and greatly improved on Ptolemy's uncertain rule for refraction which, he showed, held true only for small angles. He covered many cases of reflection and refraction and his explanation of the structure and function of the eye was followed for 600 years" (Dibner). "Ibn al-Haytham's Book of Optics is now a thousand years old. It revolutionized optics and had great impact on science in Europe, being cited by Roger Bacon and Johannes Kepler, among others" (AR, p. 99). "It is remarkable that in the Islamic world the 'Optics' practically disappeared from view soon after its appearance in the 11th century until, in the beginning of the 14th century, the Persian scholar Kamal al-Din composed his great critical commentary on it [.] By this time the 'Optics' had embarked on a new career in the West where it was already widely and avidly studied in a Latin translation of the late 12th or early 13th century, entitled 'Perspectiva' or 'De aspectibus' [.] The Latin translation was published by Frederick Risner at Basel in 1572 in a volume entitled 'Opticae thesaurus', which included Witelo's 'Perspectiva' [.] Risner's Latin edition made [the 'Optics'] available to such mathematicians as Kepler, Snell, Beeckman, Fermat, Harriot, and Descartes, all of whom except the last directly referred to Alhazen", though Descartes "employed [the work] in his successful deduction of the sine law" (DSB, p. 194-197). The 'Liber de crepusculis', the work on dawn and twilight included in Risner's 'Opticae thesaurus' and attributed to Alhazen, is actually the work of his contemporary Abu 'Abdallah Muhammad ibn Mu'adh al-Jayyani (cf. Norman; DSB, p. 208). The optical study by the Polish scholar Witelo, likewise here included, is "a massive work that relies extensively on Alhazen [and] offers an analysis of reflection that was not surpassed until the 17th century" (Norman). - Variously browned due to paper, but altogether quite a crisp, wide-margined copy, with an apparently contemporary handwritten ownership to the title page (deleted some time in the 17th or 18th century), a very few inconspicuous repairs to the edges, a faint waterstain to the lower margin and some slight worming to the lower gutter. Binding tight and well-preserved, with 17th or early 18th century library shelfmarks to front pastedown. An unusually fine specimen of a principal work of Arabic science as received in the West.

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.

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.

First English edition of this important hadith collection. The work is a translation of the Persian version by Ghulam Ya. Khan of the original Arabic version of Al- Marghinani. Al-Firgani is the name of a family of Hanafi lawyers; the nisba comes from their native town Marghinan in Farhana. The author of the celebrated Hidaya , wrote a record of his studies, but it does not appear to have survived. His principal work is the legal compendium Bidayat al-mubtadi (mss. in Brockelmann), based on al Kuduriís Muktasar and al-Shaybaniís al_Djami Ďal saghir. On this work, he himself wrote a large commentary in 8 volumes Kifayat al-muntaha. But before he had completed it, he thought it was much too diffuse and decided to write a second commentary, the celebrated Hidaya, which later writers repeatedly edited and annotated. The most important commentaries and synopses are given in the table below. For the mansuscripts and printed texts of these commentaries and synopses and of many super comentaries and glosses, see Brockelmann, II 2, 466-9, S I, 644-9; a printed edition of the Hidaya appeared in 4 vols., Cairo 1326/1908.
