        L'Alcoran de Mahomet. Translaté d'Arabe en François.

      Paris, Antoine de Sommaville, 1647. - 4to. (10), 648 [but: 598], (4) pp. Contemp. full French speckled calf with gilt tooling and title label on spine, dentelles on inner covers. Rare first edition of "the oldest complete translation of the Qur'an into a European vernacular" (Encylopedia of the Qur'an), in a handsome copy. Du Ryer's work served as the basis for further translations of the Qur'an into English, German, Dutch, and Russian, and was instrumental in introducing Europeans to the tenets of the Muslim faith. Du Ryer was a celebrated linguist and had lived in Egypt and Turkey, where he studied classical Arabic. His introduction briefly summarizes the Muslim religion for Christian readers, noting customs such as Ramadan, circumcision, the practice of having up to four wives, the significance of Mecca and Medina, Sufi brotherhoods and wandering ascetics, and finally the Islamic recognition of Jesus as a prophet but not the son of God. A prayer printed in Arabic is included on the verso of leaf e2. - "Du Ryer's translation of the Qur'an [.] became an unparalleled literary success [.] The easy availability of the Qur'an accompanied a newfound interest in the Orient; additionally, du Ryer's translation lacked the polemical tone of previous editions, an orientation which arose mainly in ecclesiastical contexts. Du Ryer used Islamic commentaries such as al-Bayawi's Anwar al-tanzil, the Tafsir al-Jalalayan by al-Mahalli (d. 864/1459) and al-Suyu i (d. 911/1505), or an excerpt from al-Razi's (d. 606/1210) great commentary made by l-Raghi l-Tunisi (d. 715/1315) entitled al-Tanwir fi l-tafsir, quite casually in his translation, merely noting them in the margins. The deprecatory tone present in the introductory chapter, 'Sommaire de la religion des Turcs,' can be understood as an attempt at camouflage (cf. Hamilton and Richard, André du Ryer, 94f)" (Encyclopedia of the Qur'an). - Extremities and joints professionally repaired. Internally fresh and clean, a very good copy with 19th-c. engr. bookplate of Sir Robert Sheffield, Bart., on front pastedown (one of the Sheffield baronets, likely the 4th, 1786-1862).

         [ Watercolour of a wallflower and a double hyacinth, with inchworm moths, larvae and pupae].[Amsterdam, ca. 1700]. Watercolour drawing (38 x 29 cm) on extremely fine white parchment, said to be uterine lamb, showing a wallflower and a double hyacinth with two inchworm moths in the air (2 different species) and two inchworms and two pupae on the leaves and flowers. Framed.

      Reitsma, Maria Sibylla Merian & dochters, ill. 110 (p. 147; a nearly identical drawing of the same wallflower specimen with 1 butterfly); Wettengl, Maria Sibylla Merian 1647-1717, kunstenares en natuuronderzoekster, no. 120 (ill. 44 on p. 85; a similar watercolour including the same wallflower specimen, with no insects). Characteristic original watercolour botanical drawing by Johanna Helena Herolt (1668-post 1721), the eldest daughter of Maria Sibylla Merian and Johann Andreas Graff. It shows a wallflower (Cheiranthus cheiri) and double hyacinth (Hyacinthus orientalis) with two inchworm moths (Geometriae) in the air, two inchworms and two pupae. She probably drew it in Amsterdam around 1700. Though she still remains in the shadow of her mother, she was a fine flower and insect artist in her own right and there is growing appreciation of her work. Her watercolours, more baroque than her mother's and often with brighter colours, radiate vigour and vivacity: the flowers, painted with intensity in every detail, really come to life. Reitsma, p. 135, notes that the prices for the flower watercolours increased with the number of insects, so the present watercolour must have been unusually expensive. Most of Herolt's work is numbered and the present watercolour is numbered "145"[?] on the back. The published catalogues rarely note the numbers, but we understand the highest number known is 164.Characteristic watercolour in fine state of preservation, with certificate of authenticity from Dr. S. Segal, Amsterdam. Herolt herself may have revised the upper part of the hyacinth.

Ad 1: Third edition of Merian's magnificent illustrations of the metamorphoses of tropical insects in Surinam, all beautifully coloured by hand, with the text in Latin and for this edition an added translation into French. It "depicts in sixty [here 72] delicately and finely coloured plates exotic leaves flowers, blossoms and fruits, explored by hovering butterflies and moths. Her artistic grouping of the insects amidst the tropical flora, makes this book one of the most beautiful and unusual in the whole range of natural history" (Landwehr). The Dutch-German artist Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) travelled through Surinam from 1699 to 1701, collecting specimens and making drawings of indigenous insects and plants. Upon return in Amsterdam she elaborated her drawings and notes into the Metamorphosis insectorum Surinamensium.Ad 2: French translation of the most extensive edition, published in the same year as this edition in the original Dutch, of a pioneering work on the insects of Europe. The work appeared in different forms, the earliest with 100 plates in 1679-1683, following by two with 150 plates, and finally the present one with 184 plates (published in both Dutch and French in 1730). While the plates are much smaller than those of the previous work, they show the same combination of plants and insects and are rendered with the same finesse and beautiful colouring.With bookplate of the Brynkinalt library of Arthur Hill-Trevor (1763-1837), 2nd viscount Dungannon. A few occasional smudges and thumbing in both volumes, and ad 1 with a 2 small tear in the lower margin, some defects in the paper of one leaf and a tiny hole in the lower margin where a quire signature should be. Otherwise in very good condition. One volume rebacked and some other restorations along the corners and the other volume with some restorations on the ends of the spine. Binding otherwise good.

Book 8vo. 16.5x 11cm, [xiv],272,[4]p. title page in facsimile, lacks map and frontis plates, bound in contemporary full vellum, incomplete copy of a rare book (cgc) T.P.L. 6322. Alden, Lande 1278, Rich, Sabin. cf. T.P.L. no. 21 for the first english translation; 1850. It is included in Recueil de Voiages au Nord, by J.F. Bernard. q.v. and a new English translation was printed in the Hakluyt Society's Publications no. 18. 1855. This relation, generally regarded as material on Greenland, is rather more an account of regions further west. It is written in the form of a letter to Monsieur de La Mothe le Vayez containing accounts of voyages by Frobisher, Hudson, and Munck. La Peyere secured his material in Demark while a member of the French ambassador's staff, 1644-45, but his work contains many inaccuracies. Captain Johan Munck, an early explorer of the north-west portion of Hudson Bay, is mentioned on the map in this edition. (Wanting in this copy). The unnumbered pages at the beginning of the book are an advertisement describing the map. .

        The Holy Bible containing the Old Testament and the New, newly translated out of the orginal tongues...

      Herbert # 598, 1647, 8vo 6.75" x 4.5" x 2", Very Good, FIRST EDITION, The earliest English Bible which bears the imprint of the Company of Stationers. Printed during the English Civil War and just two years before the execution of King Charles 1 by Cromwell at Whitehall. :The Worshipful Company of Stationers and Newspaper Makers (usually known as the Stationers' Company) is one of the Livery Companies of the City of London. The Stationers' Company was formed as an organisation in 1403; it received a Royal Charter in 1557. It held a monopoly over the publishing industry and was officially responsible for setting and enforcing regulations until the enactment of the Statute of Anne in 1710.Its members (Master, Wardens, Assistants, Liverymen, Freemen and Apprentices) are mostly involved with the modern visual and graphic communications industries which have evolved from the company's original trades. These include printing, papermaking, packaging, office products, engineering, advertising, design, photography, film and video production, publishing of books, newspapers and periodicals and digital media. The Company's principal purpose nowadays is to provide an independent forum where its members can advance the interests (strategic, educational, training and charitable) of the industries associated with the Company.In 1403, the Corporation of London approved the formation of a Guild of Stationers. At this time, stationers were either text writers, lymners (illuminators), bookbinders or booksellers who worked at a fixed location (stationarius) beside the walls of St Paul's Cathedral. Booksellers sold manuscript books, or copies thereof produced by their respective firms for retail; they also sold writing materials. Illuminators illustrated and decorated manuscripts.Printing gradually displaced manuscript production so that, by the time the Guild received a Royal Charter of Incorporation on 4 May 1557, it had in effect become a Printers' Guild. In 1559, it became the 47th in City Livery Company precedence. At the time, it was based at Peter's College, which it bought from St. Paul's Cathedral. During the Tudor and Stuart periods, the Stationers were legally empowered to seize "offending books" that violated the standards of content set down by the Church and State; its officers could bring "offenders" before ecclesiastical authorities, usually the Bishop of London or the Archbishop of Canterbury depending on the severity of the trangression. Thus the Stationers played an important role in the culture of England as it evolved through the intensely turbulent decades of the Protestant Reformation and toward the English Civil War.The Stationers' Charter, which codified its monopoly on book production, ensured that once a member had asserted ownership of a text (or "copy") no other member was entitled to publish it. This is the origin of the term "copyright". Members asserted such ownership by entering it in the "entry book of copies" or the Stationers' Company Register. The Register of the Stationers' Company became one of the most essential documentary records in the later study of English Renaissance theatre. (In 1606 the Master nof the Revels, who was responsible for licensing the performance of plays rather than their publication, acquired some overlapping authority over publication as well; but the Stationers' Register remained a crucial and authoritative source of information after that date too.) To be sure, enforcement of the rules was always a challenge, in this area as in other aspects of the Tudor/Stuart regime; and plays and other works were sometimes printed surreptitiously and illegally.In 1603, the Stationers formed the English Stock, a joint stock publishing company funded by shares held by members of the Company. This profitable business gained many patents of which the richest was for almanacks including Old Moore's Almanack. The business employed out-of-work printers and disbursed some of the profit to the poor.In 1606, the Company bought Abergavenny House in Ave Maria Lane and moved out of Peter's College. The new hall burnt down in the Great Fire of 1666 along with books to the value of about £40,000. It was rebuilt and its present interior is much as it was when it reopened in 1673. The Court Room was added in 1748 and in 1800 the external façade was remodelled to its present form.In 1695, the monopoly power of the Stationers' Company was diminished, and in 1710 Parliament passed the Copyright Act of 1709, the first copyright act.The Company established the Stationers' Company School at Bolt Court, Fleet Street in 1861 for the education of sons of members of the Company. In 1894, the school moved to Hornsey in north London. It closed in 1983.Registration under the Copyright Act of 1911 ended in December 1923; the Company then established a voluntary register in which copyrights could be recorded to provide printed proof of ownership in case of disputes.In 1937, a Royal Charter amalgamated the Stationers' Company and the Newspaper Makers' Company, which had been founded six years earlier (and whose members were predominant in Fleet Street), into the Company of the present name.The Company's motto is Verbum Domini manet in aeternum, Latin for The Word of the Lord endures forever.Collation and Condition:GENERAL TITLE PAGE, 1 page, printed by the Company of Stationers in 1647, full page architectural engraving featuring King David playing his harp, verso with royal coat of arms, HISTORIC !, COMPLETE.KING JAMES DEDICATION, 1 page, features lovely floriated header and initial, verso with the names and order of all the books of the old and new testament with the number of their chapters, VERY CLEAN !, COMPLETE.

      Wolfenbüttel, Johann Bißmarck für Michael Cubach in Lüneburg, 1647. - Erste Ausgabe der Sammlung von Schottelius‘ Dichtungen in Poesie und Prosa. "Auf dem Frontispiz stellt Schottel in programmatischer Weise seine Lyriksammlung vor: Der kunstvoll angelegte Lustgarten wird von einer Mauer von der unkultivierten, unfruchtbaren Natur abgegrenzt. Einzig die Palme (das Sinnbild der Fruchtbringenden Gesellschaft; W. B.) ist so beschaffen, daß sie, allen zu Nutzen, im Wüstensand gedeiht und über die Mauer hinweg den Pflanzen Schatten spendet. Ein 'Lusthäuslein' wird von der Göttin Ceres mit dem Füllhorn bekrönt. Im Vordergrund stehen fünf Gewächse mit sinnvollen Inschriften, ganz nach der Manier der Fruchtbringer. Schottel nimmt sich damit das Privileg heraus, das in der FG nur Fürst Ludwig als dem Oberhaupt zusteht. Seine fünf Pflanzen oder Gewächse widmet er – ohne Rücksicht auf botanische Verbindungen zu anderen Gesellschaftsmitgliedern – den ihm anbefohlenen fünf Kindern Herzog Augusts: für Sibylle Ursula das Vergißmeinnicht, für Anton Ulrich (den späteren Siegprangenden, FG 716) das Röslein, für Clara Augusta den Rosmarin, für Ferdinand Albrecht (den späteren Wunderlichen, FG 842) den Ehrenpreis, für Maria Elisabeth endlich den Augentrost. Merkwürdigerweise wird der älteste Sohn, Rudolf August (später FG 754), nicht berücksichtigt. Die Erklärung des Gewächses und des 'Worts' erfolgt jeweils am Ende der den fünf Kindern einzeln gewidmeten Büchern" (Bircher). Justus Georg Schottelius aus Einbeck (1612-1676), von Haus aus Rechtsgelehrter, war eine Zeitlang Erzieher Herzog Anton Ulrichs und seiner jüngeren Geschwister, promovierte in Helmstedt zum Dr. jur. und wurde braunschweig. Kammer-, Hof- und Kanzleirat. Als "Der Suchende" war er Mitglied der Fruchtbringenden Gesellschaft und unter dem Namen "Fortano" Genosse der Pegnitzschäfer. "It was surprising to find that a great scholar and the first serious student of language was also a poet of no mean stature. His book of poems . has been almost entirely forgotten" (Faber du Faur).

        A gorgeous document with ornate seal intact signed by a member of the Standish family of Duxbury, Lancashire - likely relations to Plymouth Colony leader Myles Standish who founded Duxbury, Massachusetts

      Manuscript Document Signed "Rd Standish," one page, 13.25" x 10.5", on vellum with scallop top, November 25,1647. Light folds, with intact wax seal affixed by a strip of vellum at bottom center. Fine condition. Richard Standish (1620 - 1662) English politician who sat in the House of Commons for Preston from 1659 - 60. Richard was the son of Thomas Standish (c. 1593 - 1642) who sat in Parliament for Preston during the Short Parliament of 1640 and in the Long Parliament until 1642. Standish, who lived at Duxbury Manor in Lancashire, was very possibly a relative of Myles Standish, one of the founders of Plymouth Colony in 1620. The document is an agreement between Richard Standish "of Duxbury in the County of Lancashire" granting Anthony Foxcroft of Halifax, York and Robert Somers an annuity of £250 "going out of all those his Mannors [sic] or Lordships of Duxbury..." A fascinating document worthy of further research. Much is known and has been written concerning the life of Myles Standish (c. 1584 - 1656) after he became associated with the English Separatists (i.e. Pilgrims) who founded the colony of Plymouth in 1620. However, very little is known about Standish's early life including his place of birth, and for nearly two centuries, this question has been been the subject of scholarly debate. The little we know about Standish's origins come from his will, drafted in 1656, in which he granted to his "son & heire apparent Alexander Standish all my lands as heire apparent by lawfull decent in Ormskirke Borscouge Wrightington Maudsley Newburrow Crowston and in the Isle of man and given to mee as Right heire by lawfull decent but Surruptuously detained from mee My great Grandfather being a 2cond or younger brother from the house of Standish of Standish."(Charles H. Simmons, Jr., Plymouth Colony Records, Volume 1, Wills and Inventories 1633-1669 ,Camden, ME: Picton Press, 1996, 312-314) Of all the places named, one is on the Isle of Man while the remaining are places in Lancashire where a branch of the Standish family resided, centered at Duxbury Hall. A short passage written by Plymouth Colony's secretary, Nathaniel Morton notes a similar origin for Standish, noting he "...was a gentleman, born in Lancashire, and was heir apparent unto a great estate of lands and livings, surreptitiously detained from him; his great grandfather being a second or younger brother from the house of Standish..."(Nathaniel Morton, New England's Memorial, Boston: Congregational Board of Publication, 1855, 6th ed., 170). Unfortunately, that is all that is known about his origins. However, the fact that Standish founded the town of Duxbury in Plymouth Colony would suggest that his origins were indeed from Lancashire and not the Isle of Man. It is not known whether Alexander Standish (1626 - 1702) ever pursued these claims.
