Item Description: Madrid, En la Imprenta Real, 1832., 1832. 8°, contemporary crimson morocco (minor wear to edges near corners), richly gilt with Spanish royal arms on covers and elegant roll-tooled border (two corners a bit bumped, otherwise pristine), smooth spine richly gilt, burgundy leather lettering piece, gilt letter, edges of boards milled, marbled endleaves, all text block edges gilt. Engraved Spanish royal arms on title page. Printed on pale blue paper. In very fine condition. Bookplate of Oscar E. Carbone. Another unidentified bookplate with initials F.V. (1 blank l., 3 ll.), 228 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. A lovely copy of the forty-fourth in a series of almanacs first published in 1792, "indispensable para los Navegantes, conveniente en sumo grado á los que se dedican á la Astronomía práctica" (from the Prefacio). The tables for position of the sun are from Carlini and Bessel; for the moon, from Burckhardt; for the planets, from Lalande. These and other calculations are explained in detail in the preface by Josef Sanchez Cerquero, director of the Observatorio Real de Marina in San Fernando. The volume includes an explanation of how to use the tables (pp. 149-182); observations on eclipses of the sun, stars, and satellites of Jupiter that were made at the Observatorio Real (begins with divisional title, pp. 183-202); and "Memoria sobre la posicion geográfica de Sevilla" by Cerquero (with divisional title, pp. 203-226).Hattendorf notes that the first regularly published nautical almanac appeared in France in 1690, followed by the British Nautical Almanac beginning in 1766, the Dutch almanac in 1787, and the Spanish almanac, which he states first appeared in 1786 as Almanak náutico y estado general de marina and continued from 1791 as Almanaque náutico.*** Not located in Palau. On the series, see Instituto Nacional del Libro Español, Ensayo de bibliografía marítima española nº 71: noting that the series was published without interruption from 1792 until this bibliography was published in 1943, although the volumes for 1812 and 1814 were printed in London, and those of 1857-59 in Cadiz. Cf. Hattendorf, "The Boundless Deep .", The European Conquest of the Oceans, 1450-1840 (catalogue of an exhibition at the John Carter Brown Library) p. 66 on nautical almanacs, including the Spanish series. Not located in CCBPE. Not located in Rebiun, which lists other years. Copac locates this volume at the British Library and an unspecified number of volumes at the National Maritime Museum.

Item Description: De Boccard. Couverture souple. Book Condition: Comme neuf. Edition originale. Paris 2005. 1 Volume/1. -- Comme Neuf -- Broché collé. Format in-8°( 20,5 x 14 cm )( 534 gr ). ------- 435 pages. ******************* "" Avec le Dârab Nâmeh d'Abu Tâher Tarsusi, la littérature des conteurs professionnels de l'Iran médiéval offre l'exemple d'un roman d'Alexandre original ainsi qu'une image inattendue du personnage, celle d'un homme plus que d'un héros. Bien que fortement iranisé, Alexandre demeure " le Rumi " auquel manquera toujours d'avoir été reconnu par son père Dârâb l'ancien. Ni sage ni véritable conquérant, il est un voyageur avide des merveilles du monde et investi d'une mission prophétique. Les obstacles rencontrés sur son parcours n'auraient pu être surmontés sans les avis des sages qui l'entourent et la bravoure de Burân-Dokht ou Roxane, " reine d'Iran ". Le récit conserve la trace de traditions divergentes, liées pour une part à la transmission orale. Jouant à la fois de l'héritage préislamique de l'Iran et du contexte islamique de son temps (XIe-XIIe s.), le conteur fait oeuvre habile : s'il exalte le champion de la foi, il ménage les susceptibilités iraniennes, et il livre différentes lectures possibles de ce singulier récit. Membre de l'équipe Monde iranien (Cnrs) et chargée d'enseignement à l'Inalco, Marina Gaillard est spécialiste de la littérature de l'Iran médiéval, en particulier de la prose romanesque. Elle est l'auteur du Livre de Samak-e Ayyâr, Structure et idéologie du roman persan médiéval (1987), maintenant traduit en persan. Collection : Persika "" ***********************.

Item Description: Venice: Simone Occhi, 1742, Venice, 1742. First Edition. FIRST EDITION. 8 vo. Contemp. Italian marbled boards. Uncut. (2), xvi, 404 pp. Title in red and black with woodcut printer's device. Engraved allegorical frontispiece + 5 engraved plates + a folding table. Old vertical browning to outside margin of title, about 25 leaves in the beginning and 4 leaves at the end with a narrow worm trail in the text generally not affecting legibility, bookplate; otherwise, a very good copy. The Jesuit, Nicolo Ghezzi (1685-1766), in a series of letters to Sig. Conte considers a number of topics in hydraulics with many references to Halley, Musschenbroek, Vallisnieri, and Hales. It is the contemporaneous work of Hales that Ghezzi frequently cites in his attempt to desalinate sea water. In this context, he reports on an apparatus for the distillation of water, a solar still. Though Arabian alchemists employed solar distillation in the 16th century, Ghezzi's is one of the first accounts of the technique. A hair hygrometer is illustrated in one of the plates, and in another, is a water clock with an organ. Riccardi I.595. Bookseller Inventory # 000068

In 4°, XXVI pp., (incluye la Portada con una restauración en el margen superior derecho), 217 pp., más 50 láminas, y 5 mapas plegados. Encuadernación en pasta española, lomo de cuero con títulos dorados.No en Suárez. Palau, n. 34155. Santos Gómez, n. 549. Primera edición. Inspirado por el éxito que cosechara la expedición que acababa de integrar por los Mares del Ártico, el teniente de marina italiano Giacomo Bove diseñó este viaje por la región austral que tan bien fuera acogido por el gobierno argentino.Bove llegó a Buenos Aires en 1881 precedido de un gran prestigio; había integrado la expedición que comandara Otto Nordenskjöld en el Ártico y en dicho periplo, el marino italiano supo cumplir una destacada misión. Lo cierto es que más allá de los elogios públicos, Bove no logró en su patria el apoyo esperado, en tanto que aquí obtuvo cuanto se propusiera, salvo que el objetivo inicial de la Antártida fue modificado hacia las tierras meridionales de la Patagonia. El Instituto Geográfico Argentino patrocinó aquel viaje y Bove fue nombrado su jefe científico. El comandante Luis Piedrabuena fue por su parte designado capitán de la corbeta ¿Cabo de Hornos¿ y el marino europeo contó con el apoyo de los científicos locales Carlos Spegazzini, Domingo Lovisato, Decio Vinciguerra y Juan Roncagli. El contingente se hizo a la mar el 18 de diciembre de 1881 y en principio navegaron hasta la Isla de los Estados para después internarse en el estrecho de Magallanes. Desde aquí la expedición se dividió y Bove, junto con Spegazzini y Lovisato, abordaron la goleta ¿San José¿ para recorrer las aguas de los canales fueguinos; ya en el canal de Beagle, la naturaleza les jugó una mala pasada y naufragaron. En tan adversa situación fueron recogidos y trasladados hasta Punta Arenas en el cúter de las misiones inglesas ¿Allen Gardiner¿. Más tarde el grupo se dirigió hacia el río Santa Cruz, en cuya desembocadura se hallaba la ¿Cabo de Hornos¿, a bordo de la cual retornaron a Buenos Aires, donde fueron recibidos el 1º de septiembre de 1882. La obra que ahora ofrecemos reúne los informes de los científicos que integraran la expedición referidos a la zoología y la botánica, a la etnografía y la lingüística, y a la geología y la meteorología.

Item Description: Ischia - Procida - Campania, 1734. La carta è disegnata ed incisa da Francesco Cassiano de Silva, inserita nella seconda edizione dell' Atlante geografico interamente concepito, disegnato ed inciso nella città di Napoli. Interessanti sono le vicende che portarono alla pubblicazione di questa rara seconda edizione, infatti: i rami delle carte inserite nella prima edizione dal titolo "Accuratissima e nuova delineazione del Regno di Napoli con le sue provincie distinte." pubblicata nel 1692, a cura di Antonio Bulifon, andarono dispersi durante l'occupazione di Napoli da parte degli Austriaci nel 1707. Solamente il fortunoso ritrovamento degli stessi nel 1734 ad opera diLuigi Bolifoni (nipote di Antonio), rientrato a Napoli al seguito di Carlo di Borbone, permise la pubblicazione di questa edizione dedicata al nuovo Re. mm 208x310.
