Liber psalmorum Davidis Regis, et prophetae. Ex

Item Description: ex Typographia Sauariana, Romae, 1614. 4to, pp. [8], 474, [3]; parallel text in double column (Arabic and Latin); woodcut coat-of-arms on title-p., woodcut printer's device on the antepenultimate leaf; contemporary ink marginalia on the first two leaves of the text; contemporary full vellum, manuscript titling on spine, yapp edges, page edges stained blue; the last 75 leaves with rodent nibblings in the fore-margin extending into the leaf approximately 3/8 of an inch but never approaching any text; the vellum also neatly restored at the fore-margin; 19th century bookplate of Dr. Grauff, and the bookseller's ticket of S. Wolf, Antiquare, Heidelberg. Contained in a brown cloth clamshell box, leather label on spine. "In a recent study Duverdier has shown how Savary de Breves, Ambassador of France in Constantinople from 1584 to 1606, in a crusading spirit conceived the idea of an Oriental press, so that, with the printing of religious works in Syriac and Arabic, the Christian minorities in the Levant would be better prepared to understand and accept the Roman church when their political liberation was near. He has Arabic and Syriac type cut during his stay in Rome (1608-1614) with which first Bellarmin's Catechism in Arabic was published in 1613. An Arabic Psalter was begun at the same time and published a year later . The Arabic typeface for this edition was probably cut by Sottile or another Italian craftsman, and is closely modeled after a Vatical manuscript of the Psalter" (Smitskamp).

Item Description: Savary de Brèves Rome 1614, 1614. In-4°, (6ff), 474 pages, (1 f). Vélin souple du temps. (Petit manque de cuir sur un mors. Quelques mouillures stabilisées dans les marges en fin d'ouvrage.) François Savary de Brèves (1560-1628), après son Ambassade auprès de la Porte Ottomane (1591-1605), fut nommé à Rome, où il resta en poste de 1607 à 1614. Il rapporta de nombreux manuscrits orientaux de son ambassade à Constantinople et fit ciseler à ses frais des caractères arabes d'une très grande beauté. Furent-ils ciselés et fondus à Istamboul, et "améliorés à son retour à Paris par le graveur Guillaume Le Bé l'Aîné", comme l'indique C. E. Bosworth dans l'Encyclopédie de l'Islam (page 789), reprenant A. Bernard (Histoire de l'Imprimerie Royale du Louvre, Paris, 1867, page 40) ? Les poinçons furent-ils entièrement gravés à Paris par Guillaume Le Bé l'Aîné? A moins qu'ils ne l'aient été à Rome, où se trouvaient les typographes des Médicis, et même le Français Robert Granjon? Quoiqu'il en soit, c'est à Rome que Savary de Brèves fit imprimer dans sa propre maison, et à ses frais (et sans doute aussi aux frais du pape Paul V) avec le concours des Maronites du Mont-Liban Scialac et Sionite, une traduction arabe du Catéchisme de Bellarmin, et son Psautier arabe-latin, qui porte la mention "Ex Typographia Savariana. Stephanus Paulinus excudebat" -ce qui semble induire qu'Etienne Paulin eut peut-être sa part dans les poinçons. Le Psautier aurait du paraître en premier, mais il resta longtemps sous presse, l'Inquisition tardant à donner son Imprimatur. Rappelé en France en 1615, il fit venir en France Etienne Paulin -et ses caractères- et publia Les Articles du Traité fait en l'année 1604 entre Henri le Grand et Sultan Amat. Savary de Brèves mourut en 1627, et ses poinçons furent mis à l'encan. Ils furent acquis (sans être payés) par Antoine Vitré, "imprimeur du Roy ès langues orientales" puis, en 1674, à la mort de celui-ci, furent déposés à l'Imprimerie Royale. Les caractères de Savary de Brèves sont pour l'arabe ce que sont les Garamont pour le grec : les plus élégants jamais gravés. Ex-libris manuscrit XVIIème : Ad usu. F.F. M. Pred. Parisien. Prov. Parisiens. (A l'usage des frères mineurs de Paris, Province de Paris.). Bookseller Inventory # 100073

Item Description: Savary de Brèves (excudebat Stephanus Paulinus), ex typographia Savariana, Romae, MDCXIV (1614), 1614. Petit in-4°, reliure en veau d'époque, 474 pages. Il s'agit de la première édition de cet ouvrage rare (une traduction des PSAUMES de DAVID en arabe et en latin). Cet ouvrage est remarquable non seulement pas son sujet mais par la beauté de ses caractères et de sa reliure. A l'origine de ce livre se trouve SAVARY DE BREVES, grand orientaliste et habile diplomate (il fit conclure entre la France et l'Empire Ottoman le fameux Traité d'Alliance et de Commerce en 1604).SAVARY DE BREVES, après son ambassade auprès de la Porte Ottomane (1591-1605), fut nommé à ROME, où il resta en poste de 1607 à 1614. Ayant rapporté de nombreux manuscrits de CONSTANTINOPLE, il voulut faire imprimer une traduction en arabe des PSAUMES de DAVID. Il fit ciseler des caractères orientaux qui sont parmi les plus beaux –dit-on- qui aient été jamais gravés (et qui sont du reste toujours conservés à la Bibliothèque nationale).Et c'est donc à Rome qu'il fit imprimer ce psautier dans sa propre maison, et à ses frais (et sans doute aussi aux frais du Pape Paul V ).Il fit cette impression avec le concours de deux Maronites du Mont-Liban: Nasrallah Salaq al-'Aquri, miieux connus sous le nom de Victorius Scialac Accurensis et Gabriel Sionita. (Smitskamp, page 161, écrit: "Scialac fut l'un des premiers maîtres chrétiens d'Orient qui, par ses publications, défendit les causes de l'orientalisme européen et de la chrétienté orientale; il enseigna l'arabe et le syriac à l'université de Rome entre 1610 et 1631. Il travaillèrent sur la base d'une traduction arabe du Catéchisme de Bellarmin. On rapporte que cette traduction s'écartant quelque peu de la vulgate, un « imprimatur » extensif fut nécessaire.Signalons que dans la tradition juive et chrétienne, on compte 150 psaumes au lieu de 151 pour certaines églises chrétiennes d'Orient (copte entre autre), or, ici, dans ce livre, nous trouvons bien ces 151 psaumes.Sur les motivations de SAVARY DE BREVE, et peut-être même de la Papauté, il faut évoquer ce que G. Duverdier a écrit dans «LES IMPRESSIONS ORIENTALES EN EUROPE ET AU LIBAN » (cité par C. ABOUSSOUAN dans LE LIVRE ET LE LIBAN JUSQU'A1900, éd. Paris 1982), à savoir que SAVARY DE BREVES, après de longues années à Constantinople avait conçu l'idée, dans un esprit de croisade, d'une imprimerie orientale au service des minorités chrétiennes du Liban, ainsi que des non-chrétiens, pour mieux faire accepter la politique de l'église romaine. Signalons à ce sujet que pour imprimer cet ouvrage SAVARY DE BREVES créa la première imprimerie orientale française, la Typographia SAVARIANA. L'élégante reliure en cuir de notre exemplaire est d'époque, en veau fauve. Elle porte les armes de Claude V. MOLÉ ("de gueules, à deux étoiles d'or en chef, et un croissant d'argent en pointe", voir O.H.L.1335) ) Ce Claude MOLÉ , Maitre d'Hôtel ordinaire du Roi (Louis XIII), était réputé pour s'être constitué une belle bibliothèque de livres choisis. Signalons une discrète et partielle restauration sur la coiffe supérieure mais cependant l'état des pages, la qualité de l'impression et l'apparence générale de cet exemplaire en font un ouvrage de valeur et en TRES BON ETAT.

Item Description: Rome, Stefano Paolini f. Typographia Savariana, 1614., 1614. 4to. (8), 474, (6) pp. With two woodcut coats of arms on t. p. and at the end. Late 19th century half calf. First edition of this adaptation of the Psalms, set in Arabic-Latin parallel text. Printed in some 3000 copies, most of which were used for a 1619 re-issue with only the title page changed. Famous for the clarity and elegance of the typeface created by Savary de Brèves: the extensive vocalisation helped this handy quarto volume achieve immense popularity among oriental scholars throughout Europe. Formerly it was assumed that the type design was based on specimens Savary had seen during his time as French envoy at Constantinople; today his probable model is believed to be a calligraphical manuscript from Qannubin, preserved in the Bibliotheca Vaticana. The cutting and founding of the types were done in Rome, in collaboration with Stefano Paolini, an experienced printer formerly of the Typographia Medicea. The Psalms' text is based on a manuscript Savary de Brèves had bought in Jerusalem (cf. Balagna, L’imprimerie arabe en occident, p. 55f.); as it occasionally departs from the Vulgate (as does the translation by the Maronites Sionita and Scialac), an extensive imprimatur was necessary. - Bellarmin's Arabic catechism and the Arabic-Latin Psalter would remain the only works to leave the Typographia Savariana in Rome; the types have survived and are now in the archives of the Imprimerie Nationale in Paris. - From the library of the Biblical scholar Samuel Davidson (1806-98) with his ms. ownership to title page; binding slightly bumped, but a fine copy altogether. STC 108. Darlow/Moule 1641. Lüthi 198. Smitskamp 33. Schnurrer 324 & p. 500-506. Fück 56. Ebert 18088. Brunet IV, 921. Bookseller Inventory # 33412

Item Description: Paris, [A. Vitré], 1625., 1625. 4to. (24), 315, (12) pp. With two printer's devices in prelims. (Bound with) II: [Barhebraeus, Gregorius]. Veteris philosophi Syri de sapientia divina. Poema aenigmaticum. Ibid., 1628. 4 ff. (incl. final blank), 35, (1) pp. With printer's device to t. p. Calf binding (c. 1800), covers and spine gilt, leading edges and inner dentelle gilt. First complete edition of the Psalter in Syriac. "The text, which includes Ps. CLI, is based on three manuscripts, one of which had been sent to the editor by George, the Maronite Archbishop of Nicosia. The Latin version professes to be as literal a translation as possible of the Syriac text" (Darlow/M.). The present Paris edition and the one published at Leiden in the same year by Erpenius are the first two European editions of the Psalter in the Syriac language. While both are printed in Syriac and Latin, Erpenius's edition omits psalm 151 (cf. Smitskamp 80). Edited by the Maronite Gabriel Sionita (1577-1648), principally involved in the 1645 Paris polyglot Bible, printed with the types of Savary de Brèves. - Bound with the sole edition of Barhebraeus's Syriac poem. "Sionite édita et traduisit ce poème syriaque de Barhebraeus, mais sans en avoir identifié l’auteur. Pour lui c’est un auteur inconnu qui a composé ce poème sur la sagesse divine" (Le livre et le Liban). Even library catalogues frequently fail to identify the author (or cite the editor Sionita). - Catalogue clipping mounted on front endpaper. Psalter title has ms. ownership and several stamps. Title of Barhebraeus stamped; all edges remargined to page dimensions of Psalter. Of the utmost rarity, only a single, incomplete copy at auction within the last decade (Sotheby's, Dec 7, 1993, lot 315, lacking 6 prelim. leaves). I: Goldsmith B 848. Darlow/Moule 8961. - II: Le livre et le Liban 143. Bookseller Inventory # 33417
