         Relatio facta in Consistorio Secreto Coram S.D.N. Gregorio Papa XV. A Francisco Maria Episcopo Portuensi Super Vita, Sanctitate, actis Canonizationis et miraculis Beati Isidori Agricolae de Madrito.

      Sans lieu ni date ni nom d'imprimeur (Roma ?, 1622) - in-4. 21pp. Cartonnage moderne. Edition Originale (?) de cette relation de la vie d'Isidore de Madrid, futur saint patron de la capitale d'Espagne, présentée au pape Gregoire XV en vue de sa canonisation. Le Cardinal Francesco Maria Bourbon del Monte 1549-1627, mécène artistique (il prit sous sa protection notamment Caravaggio), avait défendu à Rome la cause de la canonisation d'Ignace de Loyola et de François Xavier. Ce mémoire est très rare et manque à toutes les biliothèques européennes et américaines consultées. Bel exemplaire. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Seconda edizione giuntina, esemplata sulla precedente del 1618, della prima parte della scelta e del commento del Farinacci alle decisioni della Sacra Romana Rota. Il Farinacci (Roma, 1544-ivi, 1618), illustre penalista, fu Consigliere della Sacra Consulta su nomina di Clemente VIII e Procuratore Generale Fiscale della Camera Apostolica su designazione di Paolo V e giudice inflessibile, noto per la facilità con cui comminava condanne a morte. Noto per aver difeso Beatrice Cenci nel suo famosissimo processo (un altro famigerato processo coninvolse poi lo stesso Farinacci, con l'accusa di sodomia, poi caduta nel nulla solo per la grazia accordatagli da Clemente VIII), i suoi trattati giuridici (primo tra tutti la Praxis et theorica criminalis) condensarono brillantemente le codificazioni del diritto penale sino ad allora elaborate in occidente, facendo scuola per molti decenni, anche se gli studiosi moderni hanno ridimensionato il suo apporto alla storia della giurisprudenza (Franco Cordero lo ha definito "mago dello scibile penalistico confusamente blaterante"; cfr. Criminalia. Nascita dei sistemi penali, Roma-Bari, Laterza, 1985). Camerini, I, p. 346, n. 1254. Cfr. (con bibliografia) Aldo Mazzacane in Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, volume 45, 1995: "Il Farinacci ebbe fama grandissima fra i contemporanei e i giuristi del tardo diritto comune e del primo ottocento, che tuttavia non mancarono di registrarne la propensione per il malaffare. Oggetto invece di aspre censure da parte degli illuministi, quale rappresentante tipico di un sistema penale da rifiutare, ha trovato nella storiografia moderna giudizi egualmente divisi tra il moderato apprezzamento e la severa condanna. Impegnato nel difficile compito di ridurre a scienza il diritto penale, secondo il Fiorelli, dalle tinte manzoniane con le quali Franco Cordero ha dipinto la penalistica di ancien régime egli appare, al contrario, con le sue nequizie morali e intellettuali, come un esempio di quelle "lingue vendute" che popolano il "circo penalistico" del Seicento.".

         Expurgatio oder Ehrenrettung der armen Kipper und Wipper:

      Frankfurt: Herman Rathweil,, 1622. so mit grosser Leibes und Lebens Gefahr jetziger Zeit ihre Nahrung mit dem Wechsel suchen: wieder die hefftige und ernstliche Bussvermahnung M. Andreae Lampii Pfarrherrn der Kirchen genant bey S. Lorentz zu Hall in Sachsen. Small quarto pamphlet, pp. 20 (193 x 153 mm). Recent quarter vellum, spine hand lettered in ink, brown calf boards. A little light rubbing to extremities and a few marks to boards, contents evenly browned, some small punctures to margins, a very good copy. Early edition of the pseudonymous author's response to Andreas Lampius's work regarding the "Kipper und Wipper" financial crisis during the start of the Thirty Years' War, which prompted a huge surge in pamphlet publications on coinage. In the same year as the city-states of the Holy Roman Empire started to heavily debase currency in order to raise revenue, the clergyman Andreas Lampius (1576-1627) published his essay De ultimo Diablo foetu (1621) in Leipzig. In this he denounced those speculative traders – colloquially known as "Kipper und Wipper" – who profited from the severe inflation as the children of Satan. In contrast, this anonymously published pamphlet defended the traders and suggested that the condemnation of the public should rest not on individuals but rather on the government and those in positions of high authority, such as magistrates, because it was they who made such fraudulent actions necessary. The hand lettered title on the spine mistakenly identifies the author as "Lampius".

         Hero and Leander Begunne by Christopher Marloe, and finished by George Chapman

      London: Printed by G. P. for Edward Blount, 1622. Eighth Edition. about Fine. Small quarto (6 13/16 x 4 15/16 inches; 175 x 125 mm). 96 pp. With woodcut printer's device and headpiece on title-page. Historiated woodcut initials, headpieces and rules separating the sestiads throughout. Marlowe wrote the first two sestiads, and Chapman completed the poem with sestiads 3-6. There are only a handful of copies known of any early editions of this book. The first edition was printed by Adam Islip for Edward Blount in 1598 and comprises only the first two sestiads. The only know copy of this resides at the Folger library. The second edition, also printed in 1598 has the poem completed by George Chapman. This present copy, the eighth edition is quite rare. Only one other copy has appeared at auction since 1906. Full green morocco by Elizabeth Greenhill. Boards double ruled in gilt. Spine stamped and lettered in gilt. Gilt dentelles. All edges gilt. Some very minor sunning to board edges. Leaves occasionally trimmed close, rarely just touching the catchwords or signature marks. Title-page trimmed at bottom edge just touching the date of the imprint, but with no loss. A tiny wormhole beginning at E3, but not affecting text. Some minor contemporary marginalia. Previous owner Thomas Allardes (?) contemporary signature on title-page and verso of title-page. With bookplates of Robert Pirie and Bent Juel-Jensen on front pastedown. Overall an about fine copy. A Shakespeare source book. Both the first edition and this eighth edition were printed by Edward Blount, the publisher of Shakespeare's first folio. The "Only allusion Shakespeare made to a contemporary author was his quotation in As You Like It, 3.5 of a line from Marlowe's Hero and Leander:" (Sotheby's) Dead Shepherd, now I find thy saw of might, "Who ever loved that loved not at first sight?" "Another late work, perhaps Marlowe's last, is the lushly evocative Hero and Leander, a narrative poem based on the sixth-century Greek poem by Musaeus. The work, consisting of two sestiads totaling 818 lines, is apparently unfinished. It was one of a clutch of Marlowe manuscripts copyrighted by John Wolfe shortly after the author's death, but the first edition (1598) was published by Edward Blount, with a dedication to Sir Thomas Walsingham. Another edition of 1598, dedicated to Walsingham's wife, Lady Audrey, contains a continuation of the poem by Marlowe's friend George Chapman. His comment about Marlowe's 'late desires' (Hero and Leander, sestiad 3.207-9) has been misinterpreted: the desire that Chapman should 'to light surrender [his] soules darke ofspring' refers to the publishing of Chapman's own poem, The Shadow of Night (1594), not to the writing or publishing of his continuation of Hero. There is no reason to suppose, therefore, that Chapman began his sequel in Marlowe's lifetime." (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography) ESTC S109875, Pforzheimer 643 (12th edition). about Fine.

         Copia de una carta que escrivio el Padre Tomas de Barros de la Compañia de Jesus en junio de 622. al Padre General, en que declara lo que los de la Compañia hizieron en el imperio de Etiopia, en el dicho año de 622.

      1622 - [?Madrid: s.n., c. 1622.] Folio (295 x 202mm). Late 19th-century calf-backed grey boards by Lloyd, London, spine lettered in gilt; ff. [9]-14; woodcut initial; extremities a little rubbed and bumped, short cracks on joints, some light browning and damp-marking, skillful marginal repairs, that on f. 3 touching text, otherwise a clean copy; provenance: early manuscript foliation in upper margins; Maggs Brothers, London (loosely-inserted invoice dated 1999, sold to:) Bent Einer Juel-Jensen (1922-2006, his Ge'ez booklabel on upper pastedown). Rare first edition. In the second half of the 16th century, Portuguese missionaries established a presence in Ethiopia, which was perceived as a bulwark against Ottoman expansion in the area and the consequent threat to Portuguese colonial and commercial interests. Following the conversion of the Ethiopian emperor Susenyos to Catholicism in 1622, the Jesuits increased their presence and missionary work in the country dramatically, attempting to reform traditional religious practices. These efforts were resented by the Ethiopians, and social unrest and civil war followed, leading to the abdication of Susenyos and the accession to the throne of his son Fasiladas, who rejected Catholicism and eventually either expelled or executed the Jesuits remaining in the country by 1634. The author of this letter to Muzio Vitelleschi, General of the Society of Jesus, was the Portuguese missionary Tomás de Barros (1591-1658). De Barros was born in Coimbra and entered the Society of Jesus in Goa in 1610. He lectured on humanities, philosophy and theology at the Jesuit college in Goa, was the Superior of the missions in Mogor and Tibet, and Rector of Damam, Baçaim (Vasai) and Goa. This letter, written at an important point during the Jesuit expansion of the mission in Ethiopia, is divided into sections reporting the progress of the Residence of Gorgora (Susenyos' capital), and referring to the construction of the cathedral there for Susenyos in 1621 by the Spanish Jesuit Pedro Páez (1564-1622), a 'nuevo y magnifico templo' (f. 10v); the Residence of Colela; the Residence of Ancaxa; and the Residence of Fremona. The work concludes with the 'Carta del Emperor Seltan Cegued' on f. 14v, a letter from Susenyos to Antonio Fernández (1570-1642), the Superior of the Jesuit mission in Ethiopia, who had travelled via Goa to Fremona, arriving there in 1604. In 1613 Fernández was commissioned by Susenyos to undertake an embassy to the Pope and the King of Spain, travelling to Mogadishu via the Blue Nile; however, the party was captured and sent back to Fremona in 1614. Susenyos' letter offers condolences to Fernández on the death of Pedro Páez, who had been sent to Ethiopia in 1603 to attempt to restore relations with the country. Fluent in Arabic, Páez disguised himself as an Armenian and landed at Massawa, from where he managed to travel inland. Having learnt Ge'ez, he was able to establish good relations with Susenyos, and in 1613 persuaded him 'to write to the pope requesting support for the mission, as well as a Catholic patriarch. The missionary was granted land at Gorgora, on the southern shore of Lake Tana, to build a monastery for his order and a palace for himself. Paez travelled widely in Ethiopia, largely in association with Susenyos' military campaigns. In 1618, during the course of his travels, he is credited with the discovery of the source of the Blue Nile. Setting out from Dankaz, he had passed around the northern, western and southern shores of Lake Tana [.], and at the overflow from Lake Tana near Bahardar he described the fountains which he regarded as the source of the only Nile (21.4.[16]18). He travelled to the Atala Falls (=Tisiat Falls) and penetrated southward into the gorge' (Howgego Encyclopedia of Exploration to 1800, p. 782). Susneyos' letter relates his reaction to the news of Páez' death, which 'causà en mi tan gran dolor, que no hallà cosa con que divertirme ni contenerme de derre [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The author of this letter to Muzio Vitelleschi, General of the Society of Jesus, was the Portuguese missionary Tomás de Barros (1591-1658). De Barros was born in Coimbra and entered the Society of Jesus in Goa in 1610. He lectured on humanities, philosophy and theology at the Jesuit college in Goa, was the Superior of the missions in Mogor and Tibet, and Rector of Damam, Baçaim (Vasai) and Goa. This letter, written at an important point during the Jesuit expansion of the mission in Ethiopia, is divided into sections reporting the progress of the Residence of Gorgora (Susenyos' capital), and referring to the construction of the cathedral there for Susenyos in 1621 by the Spanish Jesuit Pedro Páez (1564-1622), a 'nuevo y magnifico templo' (f. 10v); the Residence of Colela; the Residence of Ancaxa; and the Residence of Fremona. The work concludes with the 'Carta del Emperor Seltan Cegued' on f. 14v, a letter from Susenyos to Antonio Fernández (1570-1642), the Superior of the Jesuit mission in Ethiopia, who had travelled via Goa to Fremona, arriving there in 1604. In 1613 Fernández was commissioned by Susenyos to undertake an embassy to the Pope and the King of Spain, travelling to Mogadishu via the Blue Nile; however, the party was captured and sent back to Fremona in 1614. Susenyos' letter offers condolences to Fernández on the death of Pedro Páez, who had been sent to Ethiopia in 1603 to attempt to restore relations with the country. Fluent in Arabic, Páez disguised himself as an Armenian and landed at Massawa, from where he managed to travel inland. Having learnt Ge'ez, he was able to establish good relations with Susenyos, and in 1613 persuaded him 'to write to the pope requesting support for the mission, as well as a Catholic patriarch. The missionary was granted land at Gorgora, on the southern shore of Lake Tana, to build a monastery for his order and a palace for himself. Paez travelled widely in Ethiopia, largely in association with Susenyos' military campaigns. In 1618, during the course of his travels, he is credited with the discovery of the source of the Blue Nile. Setting out from Dankaz, he had passed around the northern, western and southern shores of Lake Tana [...], and at the overflow from Lake Tana near Bahardar he described the fountains which he regarded as the source of the only Nile (21.4.[16]18). He travelled to the Atala Falls (=Tisiat Falls) and penetrated southward into the gorge' (Howgego Encyclopedia of Exploration to 1800, p. 782). Susneyos' letter relates his reaction to the news of Páez' death, which 'causò en mi tan gran dolor, que no hallè cosa con que divertirme ni contenerme de derremar muchas lagrimas, y dar sentidos suspiros' (f. 14v). The Spanish text of Barros' work was reprinted in Barcelona in 1624 and an Italian translation was included in Lettere annue d'Etiopia, Malabar, Brasil, e Goa. Dall'anno 1620, fin' al 1624 (Rome: 1627). This copy is from the library of the physician, bibliophile, and noted Ethiopian scholar Bent Juel-Jensen, who first visited Ethiopia in 1973 and returned with the Oxford University Expedition to Ethiopia in 1974, subsequently editing with G. Rowell Rock-Hewn Churches of Eastern Tigray: an Account of the Oxford University Expedition to Ethiopia 1974 (Oxford: 1975). Having learnt both Amharic and Ge'ez and become expert on the Aksumite coins of Ethiopia, Juel-Jensen also published The Evolution of the Ethiopian Cross: Evidence from Aksumite Coinage, from Icons, Manuscripts, and from Some Pectoral, Hand and Processional Crosses (Oxford: 1990) and (co-written with Stuart Munro-Hay) Aksumite Coinage (London: 1995). This work is rare on the market; only one other copy (the Winterton copy) can be traced in ABPC since 1975.Barbosa Machado III, p. 726; Fumagalli 1617; Sommervogel I, col. 928; Streit XVI, 2545; cf.

      Metaphraste C. Barlaeo. Acc. et aliorum Indiae e Occidentalis descriptiones et navigationis nuperae Australis Jac. le Maire historia, uti et navigationum omnium per Fretum Magellanicum succincta narratio. Also titled: Descriptio Indiae Occidentalis per Antonium de Herrera Regium Indiarum et Castellae Historiographum. Amstelodami [Amsterdam] : Colinius [Colijn, Michiel], M. D. C. XXII [1622]. Folio, contemporary full limp vellum; [4], 81 [i.e. 82, 1], 9, 11 ff; title leaf with printer's device and early ownership signatures; second title leaf with engraved vignette illustrations; 5 copper engraved illustrations (lacking the portrait of Le Maire, present in some copies but not called for in the list of plates) and 17 double-page engraved maps; front free endpaper roughened at bottom edge and with short tear at fore-edge; occasional spotting, some browning at bottom margins of first section, mild damp staining to fore-edge margins of last few leaves; a very good copy; housed in a custom cloth covered clamshell box, the calf spine with raised bands and red morocco label in gilt. Contents: I.Antonij de Herrera, Indiae Occidentalis descriptio.--II.Historia navigationis australis ductu & moderamine Iacobi le Maire institutae.--III. Descriptio omnium quotquot in hune usque diem per Fretum Magellanicum institutae sunt navigationum.--IV.Itinerarium Indiae Occidentalis auctore Petro de Cevallos, presbytero, ex Hispanico latinitate donatum.--V.Descriptio Americae excerpta ex Tabulis geographicis P. Bertij. The first edition in Latin of all three works. The Amsterdam printer, Michel Colin, published collected editions of the three works in Dutch, Latin and French in 1622. Le Maire's Historia navigationis australis (in Dutch, Spieghel der Australische navigatie) contains the first complete published account of the circumnavigation by the Le Maire-Schouten expedition in search of Terra Australis (1615-1617), which was the first to discover and round Cape Horn. Le Maire's alternative route to the East Indies managed to avoid using the Cape of Good Hope or the Straits of Magellan, and thus did not contravene the Dutch East India Company's charter which stipulated that no other Dutch trading company could use those two particular routes to reach the East Indies. Herrera's Indiae Occidentalis descriptio had first been published in Spanish in 1601 (Descripcion de las Indias Occidentales), but Colin's 1622 editions provided the public with a revised and expanded version of this important work by the official historian to the royal court of Spain. It contains numerous significant early maps of Central and South America and the Pacific Coast. Medina, BHA 455n; Sabin 31540

      Amsterdam Colijn 1622 - Four parts in 1 volume, folio (36 x 24 cm. approx.), [4], 44, [3], 46-81 [i.e. 82], [1],[1], 2-9, [1] 2-11 leaves, 110 leaves, without final blank, engraved additional title, 17 engraved folding maps, 5 engraved illustrations; light toning, light marginal dampstaining, letterpress title slightly soiled and with small chips to corners. Nineteenth century red roan-backed marbled paper-covered boards, spine lettered in gilt; extremities a bit rubbed. The first complete account of the Le Maire-Schouten expedition around the world, the first to successfully round Cape Horn, and the first edition in Latin, expanding significantly the Madrid edition of 1601. The first two parts of the book concentrate on the New World and include fine maps of Central and South America, with those on the Pacific coast adding a great deal of new geographical knowledge. Of primary importance, however, is the second part containing the description of the great Dutch navigator Jacob Le Maire's 1615-1617 voyage in search of Terra Australis. Le Maire's rounding of Patagonia via Cape Horn impacted navigation in many ways, but principally by dispelling the idea of an imaginary Southland. Michel Colin issued simultaneous Latin, French and Dutch editions of this work, adding three maps not in the 1601 Spanish edition. Copies are known with a portrait of Le Maire, but this is not called for in the list of plates. In addition, the small map on the title-page is noteworthy for being the first cartographic depiction of California as an island. The suite of maps form an early (fourth) atlas of the Americas, principally focused on the Spanish orbit, issued as an encouragement just as the Dutch focus on the Western Hemisphere turned to settlement.

      Amsterdam, 1622. 4to. 18th century full calf with double gilt line-borders to boards and five raised bands to richly gilt spine. Neatly rebacked with 90% of the old spine preserved. Corners very neatly restored. Old owner's inscription (Madrolle) to inside of front board, dated 1840, a small Jesuit stamp to front free end-paper and verso of title-page, and a stamp to blank outer margin of title-page (École Sainte Geneviève). Neat note about the author, in French ("one of the greatest men of his century and one of the founders of astronomy"...), to title-page by previous owner Madrolle. All leaves ruled around the text. A very nice copy with some even browning of some leaves and occasional very light dampstaining or brownspotting. F.*3 with a very neatly closed tear (16), 159, (1); 342 + (8), 44 pp. Woodcut title-vignette, woodcut initials, and numerous woodcut diagrams and illustrations in the text as well as many tables. Exceedingly scarce first edition of this milestone of astronomy, in which Tycho Brahe's geoheliocentric model is developed empirically and publicly for the first time, to common acceptance for posterity. Longomontanus' magnum opus presented for the very first time Brahe's planetary observations and put them into a systematic whole, presenting the results of the entire program of Brahe. Printed five years before Keplers' "Tabulae Rudolphinae", "Astronomia Danica" constitutes the first work to systemtize Brahe's observations. It will forever stand as a cornerstone of astronomical literature, presenting us with the Tychonic world system. "When Tycho died in 1601, his program for the restoration of astronomy was unfinished. The observational aspects were complete, but two important tasks remained: the selection and integration of the data into accounts of the motions of the planets, and the presentation of the results of the entire program in the form of a systematic treatise. Severin, Tycho's sole disciple, assumed the responsibility and fulfilled both tasks in his voluminous "Astronomia Danica" (1622). Regarded as the testament of Tycho, the work was eagerly received and quickly won a place in seventeenth-century astronomical literature. Even after the appearance of Kepler's "Tabulae Rudolphinae" (1627), a rival work that bore the imprimatur of Tycho, Severin's "Astronomia Danica" retained sufficient prestige to warrant reprinting in 1640 and 1663." (DSB) - In fact, a title-issue of the work appeared already in 1633. For the dissemination of the Tychonic world system, Longomontanus' "Astronomia Danica" was in many ways more important and more influential than both Brahe's own original works and Kepler's "Tabulae Rudolphinae". And not only in the Western world - during the 20th century, research has shown for instance that this work was also a major source for the astronomical reform of China.

      Caillet 11042; Edit16/ICCU, CNCE 28586; Mortimer (Italian) 254. First edition of the so-called Oracles of Leo the Wise, with a bilingual (Latin an Italian) text and 16 lovely and rather surreal engravings: an emblematic book of prophecies traditionally attributed to Leo VI (866-911/12), Emperor of Byzantium from 866 to his death and at least here also to Antonius Severus (188-217), sole Emperor of Rome from his murder of his brother in December 211 to his death. The Latin text was circulated, already attributed to Leo the Wise, in the 12th century, but Christians revived it in the 16th century and interpreted it as a prophecy that the Ottoman Empire would fall in 1622. These oracles remained popular in the 17th century, when they were presented as having predicted the setbacks that the Ottomans suffered in Europe in that period.With bookplate. With the title-page somewhat dirty and with a water stain in many leaves, and with traces of an old horizontal fold across each leaf, but still in good condition. With the front hinge cracked, the head of the spine chipped and the mottling of the leather flaking, but the binding remains structurally sound.

Encuadernación en pergamino, de la época. Rarísimo tratado, y excelente muestra de la muy escasa producción tipográfica de la Universidad de Osuna -prestigiosa, pese al maldiciente dicho cervantino de "en Osuna y Orihuela todo cuela"- que versa en esencia sobre las fiebres y sus causas, ampliando las teorías de Galeno y Avicena y con extensos textos polémicos contra las opiniones sustentadas por gran parte de las autoridades médicas de su tiempo: Gómez Pereira, Vallés, Mercado y Cristobal Nuñez, principalmente. Matamoros, nacido en 1591, recibió el grado en Salamanca y ejerció como Catedrático de Prima de Medicina en la Universidad de Osuna, por cuyas aulas pasaron Alonso Gudiel, Gaspar López Nuceda, Diego de Zúñiga, Francisco Solano de Luque, Rodrigo Caro, Luis Vélez de Guevara y Blanco White, entre otros. -

         Vaticinium Severi, et Leonis Imperatorum, in quo videtur finis Turcarum in praesenti eorum imperatore, una cum aliis nonnullis in hac re Vaticiniis. | Profetia di Severo, et Leone Imperatori, nella quale si vede il fine de Turchi nel presente loro Imperatore, con alcune altre profetie in questo proposito. Brescia, Pietro Maria Marchetti, 1596. Small 8vo (15 x 10 cm). With Marchetti's woodcut anchor and dolphin device (imitating Aldus's) on the title-page and 16 numbered engraved emblematic illustrations (plate size 8.5 x 6.5 cm). Early 18th-century gold-tooled calf.

      Caillet 11042; Edit16/ICCU, CNCE 28586; Mortimer (Italian) 254. First edition of the so-called Oracles of Leo the Wise, with a bilingual (Latin an Italian) text and 16 lovely and rather surreal engravings: an emblematic book of prophecies traditionally attributed to Leo VI (866-911/12), Emperor of Byzantium from 866 to his death and at least here also to Antonius Severus (188-217), sole Emperor of Rome from his murder of his brother in December 211 to his death. The Latin text was circulated, already attributed to Leo the Wise, in the 12th century, but Christians revived it in the 16th century and interpreted it as a prophecy that the Ottoman Empire would fall in 1622. These oracles remained popular in the 17th century, when they were presented as having predicted the setbacks that the Ottomans suffered in Europe in that period.With bookplate. With the title-page somewhat dirty and with a water stain in many leaves, and with traces of an old horizontal fold across each leaf, but still in good condition. With the front hinge cracked, the head of the spine chipped and the mottling of the leather flaking, but the binding remains structurally sound.

         Turat Musa al-Nabi alayhi al-salam id est Pentateuchus Mosis Arabicè.Leiden, Thomas Erpenius for Johannes Maire, 1622. 4to. With the title in a woodcut architectural frame. Contemporary vellum.

      - Breugelmans 1622-2; Darlow & Moule 1645; Smitskamp, Philologia orientalis 86. "First printing of the Pentateuch in Arabic characters" (Smitskamp). Edited by Thomas Erpenius and printed with his influential nashk Arabic types, cut under his direction by Arent Corsz. Hogenacker in Leiden. It gives the text of a 13th-century translation of the Pentateuch in the Maghreb dialect (spoken in Mauritania). Erpenius was one of the most distinguished orientalists and by far the best Arabist of his day. He published an influential Arabic grammar and several excellent critical editions. His own private printing office, equipped with Hebrew, Arabic, Syriac, Ethiopic and Turkish type, produced its first works as early as 1615. With bookplate, owner's inscription and library stamp of Verplanck Colvin (1847-1920). Occasional spots, some leaves with a minor waterstain in the upper or lower margin, nor affecting the text. A good copy, with generous margins. Binding slightly soiled and with a restoration to the front inner hinge, but otherwise good. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
