ELPHINSTONE, Mountstuart.
Chadenat 822; Colas 961; Lipperheide 1483. First edition of the French translation of one of the first exhaustive works on the kingdom of Kabul, now known as Afghanistan, and its dependencies in Persia, Tartary and India. First published in English in 1815, it was written by a British official, Mountstuart Elphinstone (1779-1859). Elphinstone was sent to the kingdom of Kabul by the rulers of British India in 1808, to discuss with the Shah the possibilities of a mutual defence against Napoleonic France. Elphinstone, as a consequence, was the first Englishman to visit Peshawar, the traditional winter residence of the rulers of Kabul, which was also the terminus of all trade routes from east to west. The meeting was concluded by a treaty of friendship (7 June 1809), the Shah promising to oppose the passage of foreign troops through his country. Before this could be ratified, however, the Shah was driven off the throne by his brother.The book opens with a short history of Afghanistan that ends with the coming of the English in 1809. It gives a good impression of Afghan society at the beginning of the 19th century, when Afghanistan was still virtually unknown in Western Europe.Some foxing in text, otherwise in good condition and wholly untrimmed. Wrappers have only some minor wear to the ends of the spines and some very slight soiling, but are still very good. [Attributes: First Edition]

Die Schrift auf dem Mittelbeschlag (nicht restlos aufgelöst, vgl. wiederum Adler S. 94f), die Rosetten auf den Schließenankern sowie auf den floral durchbrochenen Eckbeschlägen sind signifikant für die Marienverehrung; als weiteres kommen hinzu Rosen-Plattenstempel in einem umlaufenden breiten Fries auf dem Hinterdeckel.

Paris: 1483. voir descriptif. RARISSIME COUTUME DE NORMANDIE INCUNABLE COUTUME. Coustumier du Pays et Duché de Normandie. [Paris, Jean du Pré, 1483].

Cette rarissime première édition de la Coutume de Normandie n'est connue qu'à quelques exemplaires. Elle a été dans un premier temps attribuée par le bibliophile normand Frère à un imprimeur de Rouen. Brunet, ainsi que des chercheurs plus récents la font sortir des presses de Jean du Pré qui exerçait à Paris dès 1481, et qui a imprimé notamment sont "Trésor des Humains" en 1482 avec des carractères absolument identiques à ceux de cette Coutume. Ce "Trésor des Humains" se termine par les lettes T.L. que Le Verdier reconnait comme étant la signature de Le Talleur, alors en apprentissage chez Dupré, et qui deviendra en 1485 le premier imprimeur rouennais. Delà à supposer qu'il a travaillé sur ce "Coustumier", il n'y a qu'un pas. Néanmoins, l'imprimeur parisien a fourni ses mê … [Click Below for Full Description]

First published by Wenssler in Basel, it went through more than seventy editions over the following 150 years. (It had a second life as the first section of the 1559 edition of Antonio de Nebrija's Lexicon Juris Civilis, a work that was reissued into the seventeenth century.)

Festus, Sextus Pompeius
Bresciae: Boninus de boninis, 18 June, 1483. Large hand-drawn initial capital letter. 38 lines, 2 columns, a6b8c-d6e8f-h6 [-h6]; 51 leaves, numbered [1]- 51 (lacking final blank). 1 vols. Folio. A Rare and Important Latin Dictionary, 1483. Sextus Pompeius Festus was a grammarian of the 2nd century A.D., who wrote this abridgement ("epitome") of the now lost encyclopedic dictionary of his contemporary Marcus Verrius Flaccus -- which survives only in fragments and in occasional citations by other authors. Our primary remaining source of this important Latin dictionary is Festus' abridgement, of which there is only one surviving manuscript (mutilated, and consisting of only the letters M-V), and an 8th-century abridgment of Festus by Paul the Deacon. The printed editions from the 15th century, therefore, are of the utmost importance in the history of the transmission of the text. Vancil lists 10: (201-210), beginning with the first edition of Milan, 1471. This edition by Boninus de Bonini is the last edition printed in the 15th century, and apparently the last edition before the rediscovered mutilated manuscript was printed in 1559. Goff locates two copies (Hartford Theological Seminary and Newberry Library). RLIN & OCLC both locate one copy (Emory University), catalogued with the inaccurate remark that "this is the second and only remaining portion of the abridgement by Festus of the lost treatise, De verborum significatione of M. Verrius Flaccus, edited and with notes by Fulvio Orsini" -- a remark which applies to the 1559 printing, edited by Orsini, from the mutilated manus … [Click Below for Full Description]

Second latin edition, the first was printed in Verona in 1472, of the first book containing tecnical illustrations. ?The historical importance of De Re Militari lies in the fact that it is the first book printed with illustrations of a technical or scientific character depicting the progressive engineering ideas of the author's own time.The woodcuts illustrate the equipment necessary for the military and naval engineer; they involve revolving gun turrets, platforms and ladders for sieges, paddle-wheels, a diver's suit, a lifebelt, something resembling a tank, pontoon and other bridges, a completely closed boat that could be half submerged, etc.The Verona Valturius and its reprints were the handbooks of the military leaders of the Renaissance, and Leonardo da Vinci, when acting as chief engineer to Cesare Borgia, possessed a copy and borrowed some of its designs.'

In the present guide, Guevara gives rulers directions with regard to their private and public conduct. The work is divided into three books: On the need for the Prince to be a good Christian; how the Prince should behave towards his wife and children; and how he should govern himself and his country.

A superb copy of this great and rare book, from the library at Syston Park, with the first appearance in print of the famous Macrobian world map, the most influential of all pre-Renaissance views of the world, including an antipodean, southern continent. Printed in Brescia, in the first decade of printing there, this strikingly handsome production is the first edition of Macrobius's Commentary on the Dream of Scipio to print the scientific diagrams and the world map. Since these had not been included in the only earlier printing of the text (Venice 1472, an edition which was therefore less than complete, as the map and diagrams are specifically referred to by Macrobius to illustrate ideas discussed in the text), this is the preferred early edition.This very fine and beautifully bound copy was from the library of the noted book collector Sir John Hayford Thorold of Syston Park, probably originally purchased by his father the equally famous bibliophile Sir John (1734-1815).
