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 by the West.

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.

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: Basileae : ex officina Henrichi Petri [Mense Martio], Basel, 1551. 18 Century Vellum. Book Condition: Good. uindicati, ac latinitati donati, per Antonium Stupam Rhśtum Prægalliensem. (illustrator). First Edition. Folio. (33,5 x 22,5 cm), x, 410 pp, 2 woodcut engravings, double column per page, cover slightly rubbed, some spotting, the interior has minor browning and foxing and damp light staining in places, few old annotations and under linings, small worm trace to last leaf, otherwise copy in good condition. Scarce first edition of this translation. One of the most popular and extensive astrological compendiums in the Middle Ages, even Kepler is said to have used information from this text. There are at least 25 extant manuscripts and seven printed editions dating from 1485 to 1571. The Arabic title is Kitab al-bari‘ fi akham an-nujum. 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. One of the most extensive astrological compilations of the Middle Ages. Contents: eight books, covering all branches of astrology: Books I-III (pp. 1-114) deal with interrogations; Books IV-VI (pp. 144-296) with nativity's; Book VII (pp. 296-351) with elections; and Book VIII (pp. 352-410) with revolutions and general astrology. Book I opens with some general considerations on the zodiac signs, terms, decans, planets, etc. The work is preceded by a table of contents Bibliographic references: V.

Item Description: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown,, London, 1816. Contemporary Full Calf. Book Condition: Good. First English Edition. Volume I: xlii, 339 pp. / Volume II: 373 pp. engraved portrait frontispiece, 4 large folding engraved maps, the maps laid on linen + 86 engraved plates & plans (including 9 double-page and/or folding, one a letterpress plate 'Letter of the Archbishop of Cyprus'), lacking half-titles, some offsetting, dampstaining, browning or spotting, bindings slightly rubbed, rebacked retaining original spines, otherwise set in good condition. First English edition. The first edition was published in French at Paris in 1814. Badia y Leblich was a Spanish traveller who assumed the name of Ali Bey el Abassi and disguised himself as an arab, apparently as an agent of the Spanish government. He first travelled through North Africa to Egypt where he met Chateaubriand. From there he went on to Cyprus and made the pilgrimage to Mecca in 1807. He returned to Spain the same year via Jerusalem, Damascus and Constantinople. Ali Bey was the first Christian to describe in some detail Mecca, and the mosque of Omar in Jerusalem, as well as some little known aspects of Islam. The plates, which include numerous plans and views of Mecca, Medina and Cyprus, are mostly after Ali Bey. Bibliographic References: Blackmer 62; Not in Weber.

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.

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. Jones’s work is a translation of Ibn al-Mulaqqin’s "Bughyat al-Bahith" from Pococke’s 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 Jones’s 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 (1746–1794) 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 Mo’allakát. 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
