Item Description: Dar Al-Tiba?ah c.1849, Cairo, 1849. Contemporary publisher?s half cloth, expertly rebacked in half calf with four raised bands and title on two., Text in Arabic. Frequent commentaries in wide margins. Produced under the direction of Muhammad al-Tunisi. Maq?ma are an (originally) Arabic prosimetric literary genre of rhymed prose with intervals of poetry in which rhetorical extravagance is conspicuous. The 10th-century author Bad?' al-Zaman al-Hamadh?ni is said to have invented the form, which was extended by al-Hariri of Basra in the next century. Both authors' maq?m?t center on trickster figures whose wanderings and exploits in speaking to assemblies of the powerful are conveyed by a narrator. The protagonist is a silver-tongued hustler, a rogue drifter who survives by dazzling onlookers with virtuoso displays of rhetorical acrobatics, including mastery of classical Arabic poetry (or of biblical Hebrew poetry and prose in the case of the Hebrew maq?m?t), and classical philosophy. Typically, there are 50 unrelated episodes in which the rogue character, often in disguise, tricks the narrator out of his money and leads him into various straitened, embarrassing, and even violent circumstances. Despite this serial abuse, the narrator-dupe character continues to seek out the trickster, fascinated by his rhetorical flow.Manuscripts of al-Har?r?'s Maq?m?t, anecdotes of a roguish wanderer Abu Zayd from Saruj, were frequently illustrated with miniatures. al-Har?r? far exceeded the rhetorical stylistics of the genre's innovator, al-Hamadhani, to such a degree that hismaq?m?t were used as a textbook for rhetoric and lexicography (the cataloging of rare words from the Bedouin speech from the 7th and 8th centuries) and indeed as schoolbooks for until Early Modern times. Muhammad al-Qasim ibn Ali ibn Muhammad ibn Uthman al-Hariri, known as al-Hariri of Basra (1054?1122) was an Arab poet, scholar of the Arabic language and a high government official of the Seljuk Empire. Born in Basra in modern-day Iraq, he is best known for writing Maqamat al-Hariri, a virtuosic display of saj', consisting of 50 anecdotes written in stylized prose, which was once memorized by heart by scholars, and Mulhat al-i'rab fi al-nawh, an extensive poem on grammar., Size : Quarto (251x170mm). , ex libris stamp on page 2 dated with text. , References : Ellis 14576 b6. , 419. Very good condition. Text generally clean and crisp. Bookseller Inventory # B5680

Item Description: Touch Art, London, 2003. Contemporary Full Calf. Book Condition: As New. First Edition. Volume I: Introduction 42 pp.; of English, French & German text + XXII pp.; of Arabic text, biblio./ Volume II: authentic facsimile reproduction of the original Arabic manuscript which is housed at the Bibliotheque Nationale (Paris), 334 pp.; (380 x 270 mm), 110 colour miniatures illustrations by Yahya Al-Wasiti. Set in mint condition. New. LIMITED edition to 2000 numbered copies. A MONUMENTAL WORK, and a landmark in Arabic paintings and miniatures. It combines the primary excellence of being a grand collection of literature admired during a long and important period of Arab history, and fascinating collection of miniatures. " Among the treasures of the rich collection of manuscripts at the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris is a codex of 168 folios (arabe 5847) with 101 illustrations containing the complete text of what is called al-Maqamat al-Haririyah in a decorated cartouche awkwardly located on the upper part of the first folio. The manuscript is sometimes known as the Schefer Maqamat, because it was given to the Bibliotheque Nationale by the Orientalist scholar Charles Schefer, who probably acquired it somewhere in the Ottoman Empire, where he had spent many years Dozens of manuscripts of Haririís Maqamat have been preserved from his own time.Of all the manuscripts with pictures containing Al-Haririís great work, (this copy) towers above all others for the quality and variety of its illustrations. It was completed in C. E. 1237 (A. H. 634, in the month Ramadan) and according to its colophon, was copied and illustrated by the same individual, Yahya ibn Mahmud ibn Yahya ibn Abi al-Hasan ibn Kuwwarih al-Wasiti, presumably originating from the city of al-Wasit. .This essay was written at a time of great sadness for me, as presumably civilized human organizations failed to find ways to resolve differences and felt compelled to kill each other instead. By the time this book comes out, the worst of the war will be over, but the emotional depression of men and women of good will is likely to remain for a while. This book which deals, if not with Baghdad itself, certainly with Iraq, can be construed as a homage to the permanent values of mankind and to the power and fascination of art, regardless of when or where it was made". Oleg Grabar from his introduction. # 30527 Size: Folio. LIMITED EDITION. Bookseller Inventory # 005192

Item Description: Hirschberg, Carl Wilhelm Immanuel Krahn, 1832., 1832. Large 4to. 3 parts in one vol. (14) 28 pp. (6), 38 pp. (8), 152, (2) pp. Contemp. half calf, spine rebacked with giltstamped red morocco label. Marbled endpapers. First complete Latin translation (by the Silesian classicist and oriental scholar C. R. S. Peiper, 1798-1879) of the famous "Maqamat" ("Assemblies" or "Sessions") of al-Hariri of Basra (1054-1122): a virtuoso display of Arabic poetry, consisting of fifty anecdotes written in stylized prose which used to be memorized by scholars. "Al-Hariri's Maqamat tie in with the tradition of al-Hamadani. Like he, al-Hariri tells us of the experiences of an educated vagrant, Abu Zaid from Sarug. But his aim is not so much to render vividly this creature of his imagination or even his environment, but rather to invest his accounts with every syntactical and lexical finesse imaginable, and it is these, rather than the content of the narrative, that are to captivate and preoccupy the reader. This is the final flaring of the national Arab spirit: dazzling and, for the moment, pretty as fireworks, but similarly barren, ultimately fizzling out without effect" (GAL I, 276). Hariri's masterpiece had continued to captivate European Arabists since the 17th century (cf. Fück, 148): the first part only was published in Arabic and Latin by Fabricius in 1638, followed by Golius in 1656. Schultens published the first three chapters in Arabic and Latin in 1731, with parts 4 through 6 following in 1740. Caussin de Perceval published the full Arabic text in 1819 (following an 1809-14 Calcutta edition), which was eclipsed by that of Silvestre de Sacy in 1822, while Rückert produced a German version in 1826. - Slight browning throughout due to paper; pages and Assemblies numbered in pencil by a later owner.
