Item Description: Springer, Netherlands, 1995. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Jabir ibn Hayyan, for a long time the reigning alchemical authority both in Islam and the Latin West, has exercised numerous generations of scholars. To be sure, it is not only the vexed question of the historical authorship and dating of the grand corpus Jabirianum which poses a serious scholarly challenge; equally challenging is the task of unraveling all those obscure and tantalizing discourses which it contains. This book, which marks the first full-scale study of Jabir ever to be published in the English language, takes up both challenges. The author begins by critically reexamining the historical foundations of the prevalent view that the Jabirian corpus is the work not of an 8th-century individual, but that of several generations of Shi i authors belonging to the following century and later. Tentatively concluding that this view is problematic, the author, therefore, infers that its methodological implications are also problematic. Thus, developing its own methodological matrix, the book takes up the second challenge, namely that of a substantive analysis and explication of a Jabirian discourse, the Book of Stones. Here explicating Jabir s notions of substance and qualities, analyzing his ontological theory of language and unraveling the metaphysics of his Science of Balance, the author reconstructs the doctrinal context of the Stones and expounds its central theme. He then presents an authoritative critical edition of a substantial selection of the text of the Stones, based on all available manuscripts. This critical edition has been translated in its entirety and is provided with exhaustive commentaries and textual notes -- another pioneering feature of this book: for this is the first English translation of a Jabirian text to emerge in print after a whole century. An outstanding contribution is that it announces and presents an exciting textual discovery: the author has found in the Stones a hitherto unknown Arabic translation of part of Aristotle s Categories. Given that we have so far known of only one other, and possibly later, classical Arabic translation of the Greek text, Haq s discovery gives this book an historical importance.

Item Description: Maisonneuve & Larose, Paris, 1988. Maisonneuve & Larose, Paris 1988. Gr.-8°. 135 S., 3 Bl., 1 (w) OKarton. Islam d'hier et d'aujourd'hui 31. - "Le Corpus des écrits attribués à l'alchimiste Jâbir ibn Hayyân, achevé vraisemblablement dans la première moitié du Xe siècle, contient des éléments d'une doctrine escha-tologique ultra-chiite assez originale. Celle-ci ne se prononce pas sur les questions de succession de l'imamat qui avait déchiré le mouvement chiite. Pour elle, la rencontre avec l'Imam a lieu par le truchement du savoir, et tout particulièrement par la compréhension des secrets de l'alchimie, science totale, universelle. Le présent article tente d'en dégager des données nouvelles à partir de l'analyse du traité Kitâb al-Bayân. Ce texte suggère que la libération collective de l'humanité des chaînes de l'ignorance aura lieu grâce à la diffusion de ces sciences ésotériques. À la fin des temps, un personnage messianique divino-humain désigné comme le Bayân viendra rendre manifeste le caché, et accomplir ainsi le destin de l'humanité entière" [Pierre Lory]. - Nahezu neuwertiges Exemplar.

An outstanding contribution is that it announces and presents an exciting textual discovery: the author has found in the Stones a hitherto unknown Arabic translation of part of Aristotles Categories. Given that we have so far known of only one other, and possibly later, classical Arabic translation of the Greek text, Haqs discovery gives this book an historical importance.

Item Description: Mathias Apiarius (Biener) for Johann Petreius,, Bern:, 1545. Quarto: I. [16], 302, [2] p. aa-bb4, a-z4, A-P4. II. [127] p. A-Q4 The Main Chemical Textbooks of Medieval EuropeWith the Oldest Known Bookplate of a German Pharmacist I. ?Alchemiae Libri? (1545) Second edition of this extremely important and early collection of alchemical writings. The identity of Geber with the eighth-century alchemist Jabir ibn Hayyan is still a matter of dispute. ?Even on the slender basis of our present knowledge, Jabir appears already as a very great personality, one of the greatest in mediaeval science.??Sarton, I, p. 532. Certainly, De Alchimia and the other works of the Geber corpus were of the greatest influence on Western chemistry, and ?whether they be translations or elaborations, they represent the amount of Arabic chemical knowledge made available to Latin reading people toward the end of the thirteenth century?they represent the best Latin knowledge on chemistry in that period.??Sarton, II, p. 1044. The present collection contains four treatises by Geber/Jabir ibn Hayyan: 1. Summa perfectionis. 2. Liber de investigatione perfectionis (the earliest description of the preparation of nitric acid and aqua regia). 3. Liber de inventione veritatis sive perfectionis. 4. Liber fornacum (a practical text on chemical operations). ?We find in them remarkably sound views on methods of chemical research; a theory on the geologic formation of metals; the so-called sulphur-mercury theory of metals (the six metals differ essentially because of different proportions of sulphur and mercury in them); preparation of various substances (e.g., basic lead carbonate; arsenic and antimony from their sulphides). Jabir deals also with various applications, e.g., refinement of metals, preparation of steel, dyeing of cloth and leather, varnishes to water-proof cloth and protect iron, use of manganese dioxide in glass-making, use of iron pyrites for writing in gold, distillation of vinegar to concentrate acetic acid. He observed the imponderability of magnetic force.??Sarton, I, p. 532. This collection also contains the following texts of which at least four are printed for the first time: 5. Roger Bacon?s Speculum Alchemiae. 6. Richard of Wendover?s Correctorium Alchemiae. 7. Rosarius minor, de Alchemia by an unknown author. 8. Khalid ibn Yazid?s Liber Secretorum Alchemiae. 9. Hermes Trismegistus? Tabula Smaragdina. 10. Hortolanus? commentary on the Tabula Smaragdina.A contemporary note in a copy of the 1545 ed. once offered for sale by E.P. Goldschimdt (Cat. 165, item 19) stated that the manuscript used by the printer Petri for this edition came from the library of Conrad Gesner. D.S.B., VII, p. 42?His ?importance for the history not only of alchemy but also of science in general, and for the intellectual history of Islam, has by no means been sufficiently examined??(& see the full article for more on his individual writings). Duveen, p. 11??one of the most valuable early collections of texts.? Ferguson, I, p. 301?(not in Young collection). Darmstaedter used this edition to prepare his Die Alchemie des Geber (1922).II. ?De Alchemia Dialogi II? (1548)This is the first combined edition of these two texts, both translated from the Italian by Guglielmo Grataroli. The prefatory "propositiones" are headed: ?Expositio librorum Gebri et Raimundi [Lulli]? The first dialogue, written by the Brescian Giovanni Braccesco, ?Dialogus primus, veram et genuinam librorum Gebri sententiam explicans, Demogorgon Geber? (p. [11-112]) was first published in Venice in 1544 under title ?La Espositione di Geber Philosopho? The second work, ?Lignum Vitae, Demogorgon Rymundus? (p. [113-127]) was first published in Rome in 1542 under title: "Il legno della vità? Although various components of these works are ascribed to Raymond Llull, ?The ascription is improbable." (Mellon)?The printer, Petreius, in a note to the reader, alludes to his recent editions of Geber and Llull, whose hidden secrets these dialogues will now disclose? The leading idea of Bra.
