Illuminated Bible
Ethiopia: No Publisher Named, [1600]. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. [ca 1600]An excellent Illuminated Coptic Bible from Ethiopia, approximately 400 to 500 years old, in Shittim wood boards, containing a portion of the Christian Scriptures. The Bible is housed in a handmade leather case, with hand lettering in black and in red, has string ties at the upper corner of some pages (providing place markers for a prior owners favorite passages or sections), and is beautifully illuminated in hand at the front and rear pages and at two internal pages. The Bible's boards are made of shittim wood (a type of acacia wood) which in turn is covered in a lovely decorative cloth, most of which cloth has survived the book's many years of handling. [Shittim wood likely was chosen for this Bible as it is native to the area and was the wood of which the Ark of the Covenant was constructed. See Exodus 25.] Previously owned by a nomadic Ethiopian, the owner would have spent time reading the book at night near the fire and both the book and the case still carry the campfire's aroma. Written in Ge'ez and in Very Good condition, the rear board is lacking some of the sinews that hold the book together, but the remaining sinews are holding well. The Bible's leather case would one have had a strap for carrying the encased book over the owner's shoulder as well as a strap of leather running across the front of the case into which the case's tongue would have been tucked, each of which leather straps is lacking. Also, as noted above, the decorative cloth covering shows … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bible
Ethiopia: No Publisher Named, [1600]. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. [ca 1600] A Scarce Coptic Bible from Ethiopia, approximately 400 to 500 years old, in Shittim wood boards with a leather spine sewn on, containing a portion of the Christian Scriptures written in Ge'ez in red and black lettering and with numerous (apparently both contemporary and later) marignal notes in different hands. The Bible's boards are made of shittim wood, which likely was chosen for this Bible as it is native to the area and was the wood of which the Ark of the Covenant was constructed. [See Exodus 25.] Previously owned by a nomadic Ethiopian, the owner would have spent time reading the book at night near the fire and the book still carries the campfire's aroma. In Very Good condition, the boards each have been repaired with old stitching, and the pages show stains to the margins (and in some cases affecting text -- which remains legible) due to the centuries over which this book was handled, a bit of rubbing to the text here and there and four small holes to the leaves within the text block. A very nice example of an Ethiopian Coptic Bible, beautifully illuminated. QUITE SCARCE.

Forster, Richard (1975- ), Stefan Hansen and Michael Negele (editors)
xvi+1079 pages with over 500 pictures, 1600 diagrams, 700 games and indexes. Thick quarto (11 1/4" x 8 1/4") issued in grey cloth with silver lettering to spine and cover and two ribbon markers. Published for the Lasker Society. Introduction by Paul Werner Wagner. First edition.Twenty five top level authors contribute in detail Lasker's multifaceted life inside and outside the chess world. His chess carer has been analyzed by grand-masterly hands from the very beginning over the long time as a world champion to the surprising comeback in retirement. Six key chapters trace Lasker's life and work in Germany, England, the Netherlands, the United States, Cuba and Russia. For the first time Lasker's origin and childhood have been compiled in detail besides the volume offers and in-depth appreciation of the figure of Jacques Hannak who's 1952 biography of Lasker has decisively formed the Lasker image of many generations. Moreover Lasker's own creative activity as a journalist and author has been systematically researched. Reputable experts pursue Lasker's ambitions in the fields of mathematics, philosophy and drama. His achievements in the area of Bridge and Go as well as in the game invented by himself, Laska, are appreciated first hand, and friends of artistic chess don't loose out as well. One chapter each on Lasker's oeuvre in problem chess and in endgame studies round out the diversified work.Condition:A fine copy issued without jacket.

Mansucript on Vellum of a Rare Erotic Work, Bound by Thouvenin. Manuscript facsimile on vellum of a rare erotic work, "Conjectures of Women," an excerpt from William Coquillart's legal parody DROITS NOUVEAULX, printed circa 1600 in Rouen by Abraham Cousturier. The work was again printed in a limited facsimile edition in 1830. "Présomptions signifie ici conjectures. D'apres l'extérieur des femmes, leur air, leur habillement, l'auteur présume leur conduite cachée; et il entre dans des détiails grossièrement obscènes" (Brunet). The present mansucript is attributed to the late 18th-century calligrapher François Florent Fyot, one of a number of calligraphers who specialized in producing manuscript facsimile copies, known as "copies figurées," of unobtainable 16th and 17th century printings.

Nicolas de Bruyn era figlio di Abraham, dal quale fu indirizzato verso lo studio dell?incisione. Tuttavia non ne seguì l?esempio per stile ed esecuzione, ispirandosi invece ai lavori di Luca di Leida. I disegni di Marteen de Vos raffiguranti la storia di Adamo ed Eva sono incisi anche da Crispin de Passe. Engraving, about 1600, signed in plate below. From a drawing by Maarten de Vos. Beautiful proof, printed on contemporary laid paper, with thin margins, in excellent condition. Nicolas de Bruyn was the son of Abraham, by whom he was directed to the study of the incision. However, it followed the example of style and performance, inspired by the work instead of Lucas van Leyden. Maarten de Vos's drawings depicting the story of Adam and Eve are also engraved by Crispin de Passe. Dimensioni 120x132.

Magnifica prova, impressa su singolo foglio reale di carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Splendida veduta a volo d?uccello della città edita come separata pubblicazione a Roma nell?anno giubilare 1600. Dedicata a Don Fernando de Castro, Conte di Lemos e vicerè del Regno di Napoli, la pianta reca in alto a sinistra lo stemma Reale di Spagna, a destra quello della città e al centro vicino alla dedica lo stemma del dedicatore Pico Blas, che probabilmente commissionò l?OPERA. Giacomo Lauro, cartografo, incisore e editore attivo a Roma tra il 1585 ed il 1612, è autore di diverse piante e vedute finemente intagliate al bulino. Ereditando la tradizione di Antonio Lafrery nel pubblicare carte geografiche su richiesta, il Lauro viene in concorrenza con gli altri editori romani del periodo quali Claudio Duchetti e Giovanni Orlandi. La sua opera più importante rimane Antiqua Urbis Splendor, raccolta di 166 bulini sulle antichità romane. La più importante pianta della città.

HEYTESBURY, William.
Extremely rare first edition of most of the works of Heytesbury, one of the Oxford Calculators of Merton College, including his highly important <i>Regule solvendi sophismata</i>, which certainly influenced Thomas Harriot in his work on free fall, and probably influenced Galileo's discussion of this problem in the <i>Discorsi</i> (see below). Its discussion of limiting processes and notions of infinity foreshadow in a remarkable way the approach taken by modern pure mathematicians. "The conclusions of the <i>Regule</i> with regard to limits and aggregates bear a resemblance to the work of the nineteenth-century mathematicians Cauchy and Dedekind on the logical foundations of the calculus" (Wilson, p. 149).<br/><br/> The <i>Regule</i> represents "the high point of the Merton logical and mathematical discussion of physical problems. This whole discussion, in which Heytesbury played such a prominent part, was of considerable influence throughout Europe from about 1350 to the early years of the sixteenth century. On the side of kinematics - the analysis of movement in terms of distance and time - Heytesbury's treatise was particularly important and influential. We can single out a few of its achievements: (1) In it Heytesbury gave a clear-cut definition of uniform acceleration as a movement in which equal increments of velocity are acquired in equal periods of time. (2) He also gave an analysis (certainly one of the earliest) and definition of instantaneous velocity... (3) Heytesbury's statement of the so-called Merton College mean-speed law [which] held that a uniform accelera … [Click Below for Full Description]

CABEO, Niccolo.
The first Italian book on magnetism and electricity, and only the second to be published on these subjects, the <i>De Magnate</i> (London, 1600) by William Gilbert being the first. The important discovery of electrical repulsion is here first announced (p. 194), and this phenomenon was later systematically investigated by Otto von Guericke in his <i>Experimenta Nova</i> (Amsterdam, 1672). Electrical repulsion 'seems to have been noticed incidentally by Cabeus, who ... describes how filings attracted by exhited amber sometimes recoiled to a distance of several inches after making contact' (Wolf, I, 303). Cabeo (1585-1650) taught mathematics and theology in Parma for many years and later settled in Genoa, where he taught mathematics. This work of some ... describes many experiments on the possibility of telegraphic communication by means of magnetized neddles and gives the first picture of the sympathetic telegraph, which fancifully anticipates the actual telegraph." (Neville). Jesuit Science in the Age of Galileo 14. There are three issues (no priority) of this book: the first issue has a royal coat-of-arms at the head of the title; the second issue has the coat-of-arms replaced by the Jesuit emblem [this copy]; and the third was produced for export to Germany and has an added printed title with a Cologne imprint.

La seconda parte (con proprio frontespizio) contiene un ?Compendium, quae ab eodem Auctore fusè libris decem de eadem quaestione disputantur?. "Edizione originale". Cfr. Brunet,I,1094 - Durling,628 - Wellcome,I,965. ?Federico Bonaventura (1555-1602), di nobile famiglia urbinate, si cimentò in lavori di erudizione su antichi testi di argomento astronomico e meteorologico, di pronostici astrologici, di contese cavalleresche.. Nell?autunno del 1599 diede l?ultima mano all?opera sua di maggior mole: le mille pagine in folio del "De Natura partus octomestris", replica a uno scritto di egual titolo che il medico Girolamo Bertolini gli aveva dedicato il 12 dic. 1594. Stampata a Urbino da Ragusio nel 1600, rimessa in circolazione dal Ciotti a Venezia sotto un frontespizio fittizio nel 1602 e a Francoforte nel 1612, l?opera ebbe una qualche diffusione per i quesiti medici, giuridici e astrologici che affrontava.. Era talmente smisurata che il Bonaventura si sentì in obbligo di stenderne un "Compendium" che offerse al duca il 4 maggio 1600 e che il tipografo stampò in calce all?immane tomo per comodo de? lettori sbrigativi?.

We have not been able to locate any earlier printings of the two works in any bibliographies, nor have we been able to find any in the library databases, but it seems that Bibliothèque nationale du France owns a copy of at least the Aristotle with a title-page stating 1599, also Paris by Drouart. We thus assume that this is the same printing, but with a variant title-page. Both of these monumental works are translated by Louis Le Roy (or Leroy), the great classical scholar, and have his learned an important commentaries, including additions and amendments by Louis Morel, who published the work with Drouart.
