        L'Alcoran de Mahomet. Translate d'Arabe en Francois.

      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. 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 in 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'sAnwar 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, Andre 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). - Chauvin X, p. 126. Schnurrer 427. Fück 74. Brunet III, 1309. Encyclopedia of the Qur'an V, 347.

        Fleta, Seu Commentarius Juris Anglicani Sic Nuncupatus, Sub Edwardo...

      1647. First Edition of Selden's Edition of Fleta And His Ad Fletam Dissertatio From the Library of Sir Frederick Pollock Selden, John [1584-1645], Editor. Fleta, Seu Commentarius Juris Anglicani Sic Nuncupatus, Sub Edwardo Rege Primo Seu Circa Annos ab Hinc CCCXL. Ab Anonymo Conscriptus, Atque e Codice Veteri, Autore Ipso Aliquantulum Recentiori, Nunc Primum Typis Editus. Accedit Tractatulus Vetus de Agendi Excipiendique; Formulis Gallicanus, Fet-Assavoir Dictus. Subjungitur Etiam Joan. Seldeni ad Fletam Dissertatio Historica. London: Typis M.F. Prostant Apud Guil. Lee, & Dan. Pakeman, 1647. [viii], 553, [3] pp. Quarto (8-1/2" x 6-1/2"). Contemporary calf, blind rules to boards, "Fleta" in contemporary hand to fore-edge of text block, endpapers renewed, recently rebacked in period style, hinges mended. "F. Pollock/ Linc: Inn" to front pastedown, "F. Pollock/ Linc: Inn/ 1881" to head of title page, which is printed in red and black. Toning to text, faint dampstaining to upper margins of title page and a few following leaves. Two early struck-through signatures to title page, notes in Pollock's hand to rear endleaf, additional sheet of his notes laid-in. An appealing association copy. * First edition. The work by an anonymous author describes the practice of the courts, the forms of writs and an explanation of law terms as they existed during the reign of Edward I. Selden brought this ancient treatise to the public's attention and was instrumental in its publication. While Bracton earns the highest praise as the father of legal learning, Fleta earns a share of it for the illustrations he offered to some of the obscurities found in Bracton. Selden's appended dissertation (pp.453-553) contains many interesting observations about Bracton, Britton, Fleta, and Thornton "and shows what use was made of the Imperial law in England whilst the Romans governed here, at what time it was introduced into this nation, what use was formerly made of it, how long it continued, and when the use of it totally ceased in the King's Courts at Westminster" (Bridgman). Sir Frederick Pollock [1845-1937] was one of the greatest British judges and legal scholars of his day. His treatises on contracts, jurisprudence the common law and other subjects did much to clarify and systematize English law. Several of thes.

Finely engraved vignette on title & four engraved plates. 4 p.l. (the fourth leaf contains directions to the binder, otherwise blank), 40 pp. Danzig: Sumptibus Autoris, 1656. A magnificent sammelband containing first editions of the first six of Hevelius's publications, all privately printed. These are fine and large copies with many outer and a few lower edges uncut. This collection comes from the library formed by Sir Christopher Sykes (1749-1801), at Sledmere House in Yorkshire. I. The author's first book and one of his greatest; this is the first complete lunar atlas and contains the results of four years' observations made from Hevelius's specially built observatory at his home in Danzig. It is the foundation work of lunar topography and the first astronomical atlas to exploit the powers of the telescope. "The Selenographia proper begins with arguments disproving the ancient idea that the moon is a mirror reflecting the earth; but with the eighth chapter its contents become memorable. There Hevelius delineates and discusses the lunar markings and the movement of libration...Hevelius gave many new names to the lunar mountains, craters, and other formations; most of them are still used. His most profitable task, though, was to draw the moon in different states of libration."-D.S.B., VI, pp. 361-62. "No finer book on the moon has ever been published. In scores of illustrations, drawn and engraved by the author himself, Hevelius tracked the moon through every phase of an entire lunar cycle, and then incorporated the information gained into three large moon maps."-Ashworth, The Face of the Moon. Galileo to Apollo (Linda Hall Library, 1989), 5. II. This work contains two letters by Hevelius, the first (pages 1-48) answers Riccioli's doubts set forth in his Almagestum concerning Hevelius's theory on the libration of the moon as described in his Selenographia. The second letter (pages 49-72) is addressed to P. Nucerius (Pierre des Noyers), one of Hevelius's patrons. It contains observation methods employed and a description of the solar eclipse of August 12 and of the lunar eclipse of August 27, 1654. Bound in to this copy are the other two letters (see III) which appeared in the Epistolae IV. I have not included them in my collation for sake of simplicity (but see next title). III. The Epistolae IV contains the two letters described in II (now numbered III and IV) as well as two further letters inserted. The first of these, addressed to Laurentius Eichstädt, professor of mathematics at Danzig, provides observations of the solar eclipse on November 4, 1649. This letter consists of one double-page folding printed leaf (printed on three sides) and one engraved plate. The second letter is addressed to Pierre Gassendi and Ismael Bouilliau and contains observations of the solar eclipse of 8 April 1652. This letter consists of [8] pages. Both of these letters are inserted following the title-page. IV. The Dissertatio contains Hevelius's theory of the various configurations of Saturn and the sun's diameter. "Hevelius's works were all printed in Danzig, in folio...Each work is a masterpiece of composition and a fine example of expert printing. The books were generally not sold, but distributed at the author's discretion...Today all the works of Hevelius are very difficult to obtain."-Johannes Hevelius (B.Y.U., 1971), p. 83. Provenance: Inscription of "Cat. V1 P331 CS Sledmere" on inside front cover. A very fine set of Hevelius's first works, preserved in a morocco-backed box. ❧ Johannes Hevelius (B.Y.U., 1971) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, & 6 . I. Whitaker, Mapping and Naming of the Moon, pp. 50-57. .

        Nouvelles experiences du vuide. Avec la description des machines qui servent a les faire.Paris: J. Cusson, Fils, 1674. First edition.

      First edition, very rare and a fine copy, of one of the most important documents in the early history of the air-pump, and the the primary source (besides letters published half a century later in Christiaan Huygens' <i>Oeuvres</i>) for information on Huygens' improvements on Boyles' first air-pump. "Among further improvements in the air-pump during the latter part of the seventeenth century were the two way tap, introduced by Papin; and the double cylindered pump, probably introduced by Papin and perfected by Hauksbee, through whom the air-pump assumed what long remained its standard form" (Wolf, <i>A History of Science, Technology, and Philosophy</i>, Vol. I, p. 107).<br/><br/> Papin (1647-1712?) arrived in Paris in 1670 intending to practise medicine, but soon became disillusioned and, having developed a taste and talent for mathematics and machinery, sought the patronage of the wife of the minister Colbert. She arranged for him to lodge in the Louvre and to assist Huygens, who had been invited to develop his many scientific interests under French protection. "At the time that Papin joined him in 1673, Huygens was investigating the force of gunpowder as a means of creating a vacuum under a piston in order to drive machinery, in particular to operate a pump to raise water from the Seine to the palace of Versailles. Papin, who was continuing the investigations into the preservation of foodstuffs under vacuum that he had begun at university, was led to consider the vacuum as a possible motive force. During this period Leibniz, then in Paris, became a regular visitor to Huygens' laboratory. Papin learnt a great deal from Leibniz and the friendship thus engendered lasted for many years. The pumps that Papin developed, together with his vacuum experiments, were described in his first treatise, <i>Nouvelles expériences du vuide</i> (1674); favourably received by the Académie des Sciences, it was republished in the <i>Journal des Savants</i> in 1765" (ODNB). <br/><br/> In May 1674 Mariotte obtained a copy of Papin's book, and told a correspondent in Burgundy that Papin's machines were ten times cheaper and "more secure" than those of Huygens: he offered to send an example. A commercial market for air-pumps seems to have developed by the mid-1670s. In 1678 air-pumps in Paris were sold for the equivalent of four guineas by Hubin, "enameller to the King," and a former instrument-maker for Huygens. In Holland, van Musschenbroek made air-pumps at Leyden, and in England, Papin worked with Boyle on air-pump experiments with a new double-barrelled design from 1675. Ultimately, the air-pump techniques developed by Boyle and Papin were transmitted to Hauksbee, who began his research at the Royal Society for Isaac Newton in 1703. Hauksbee's work on capillarity in the void was to be profoundly influential in the matter theory Newton developed after 1706, in the Queries to the <i>Opticks</i>.<br/><br/> DSB X: 292-93; Poggendorff II 355. Ernst Weil stated (his Cat. 27, item 162) that this book is to be "always regarded as one of the Classics in Science; it is without doubt one of the rarest of all of them." OCLC lists Brandeis and Harvard only in US. <br/><br/> The work is contained in a sammelband from the Macclesfield Library, bound in mid-eighteenth-century polished mottled calf, with six other works: <br/><br/> MATHUR, R. Philosophica dissertatio de gravitate, London: Tho. Woodward, 1742. Pp. [iv], 76. First edition. Includes a four-page section "Newtonus" not noted in the Newton bibliographies.

First edition in English, translated by Admiral Sir Charles Knowles (1697-1777); it appeared originally as <i>Extrait du méchanisme des mouvemens des corps flotants in Mémoires pour l'Histoire des Sciences & des Beaux Arts</i>, April 1735. Knowles writes in the preface that he had verified the author's principles, by a number of experi¬ments, and had also found them to "answer perfectly well when put into practice in several line-of-battle ships and frigates that I built whilst I was in Russia."

First edition. Bose (1710-61) was elected in 1738 to the chair of natural philosophy at Wittenberg. "From 1742 to 1745, after close reading of Du Fay, Bose vigorously and successfully promoted the study of electricity in Germany, where it had never before been cultivated extensively. To this purpose he produced wonderful displays with his electrical machine, a German poem, a French tract [the present work], and several high-flown Latin commentarius. This mixture of literary polish and striking demonstration, this "writing sublimely of wonderful things," as a contemporary electrician put it, was Bose's great contribution, for he thereby indirectly brought about the central event in the early history of electricity, the discovery of the condenser (1745-1746). Musschenbroek began the experiments that culminated in the Leyden jar by repeating an impressive Bosean demonstration; and J. G. von Kleist very likely hit on his form of the condenser while attempting to ignite spirits by means of sparks, a recently successful experiment first urged by Bose" (DSB). <br/><br/> BERNHARD, J.

A fine and attractive copy. The Latin poet John Owen (Joannes Audoenus, 1563/4&#150;1622?) studied at Winchester College, when he began to be noticed as a poet. He taught school for some years but commenced professional poet when he moved to London in the early 17th century, where his first three books of epigrams were printed in 1606. In all, he published ten books of epigrams, which were unusually popular and enthusiastically collected by the cognoscenti of the `7th century book world.

        Nova Virginiae Tabula

      Willem Blaeu, Amsterdam - Rare and early map of the Chesapeake Bay in beautiful original color, circa 1647. Features two architectural cartouches, a coat of arms, a Native American figure and a vignette showing the Powhatan King surrounded by his subjects. Denotes many place names including Jamestown and geographical and topographical elements. This map was the first and most well known derivation of the map by John Smith from 1612. Settlements are marked with a house and the parameters of Smith's explorations are marked with a cross. Originally published by Jodocus Hondius Jr. in 1618, this example is the second state, after the plate was purchased by Willem Jansz. Blaeu in 1629. Competition between the highly successful Dutch mapmaking families, Hondius and Blaeu helped propel the success and wide distribution of this map, inadvertently spreading the word of England's claim in the New World. Minor overall toning, light scattered foxing, folds to margins from previous framing. Full original margins. Willem Blaeu (1571-1638) was a prolific Dutch mapmaker who started one of the most famous map publishing firms of the 17th century. It was at this time that the Dutch controlled the map trade, and their ornate and beautiful maps had immense popularity. Blaeu was instrumental in driving this dominance in his lifetime, and this legacy was continued by his sons. Map. Engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 14.75" x 18 7/8".

        Le Miroir qui ne flate point. Dédié à la Reyne de la grande Bretaigne.

      1647 - Petit in-4 [145 x 192 mm], cartonnage moderne, dos de vélin, titre doré, [10] feuillets non chiffrés, 269 pages, 7 planches gravées sur cuivre par Nikolaus VAN DER HORST d'après Corneille GALLE. (Exemplaire court de marges ; la légende est rognée en pied de deux planches. Une lacune marginale avec petit manque de texte.) Natif de Toulouse, Pierre PUGET DE LA SERRE (1593-1665) suivit Marie de Médicis dans son exil à Bruxelles, puis à Londres où elle trouva refuge auprès du roi son gendre et de sa fille Henriette-Marie : c'est à cette dernière que le toulousain dédie ce Miroir destiné à inculquer aux souverains le souvenir constant de la mort et de la vanité de toutes choses ici-bas. L'ouvrage parut à Bruxelles en 1632 chez Godefroy Schoevaerts et connut de nombreuses réimpressions (la nôtre comprend encore l'achevé d'imprimer du 14 août 1632), ainsi qu'une traduction anglaise en 1639 (The Miror which flatters not, London). L'illustration se compose de trois gravures aux feuillets liminaires, soit le titre-frontispice et deux portraits, celui de Charles Ier d'Angleterre et celui de Henriette-Marie, ainsi que quatre planches narratives en tête de chaque chapitre. L'invention en est due au graveur anversois Corneille GALLE dit le vieux (1576-1650), fils de Philippe Galle, reconnu comme le plus talentueux de sa lignée, et la gravure à Nikolaus VAN DER HORST. Le Miroir qui ne flate point est le fruit d'une nouvelle collaboration entre l'auteur, l'illustrateur et le graveur, qui avaient travaillé ensemble une première fois aux Douces pensées de la mort (Bruxelles 1627), puis qui s'associèrent pour la réalisation d'un certain nombre d'ouvrages, parmi lesquels le Bréviaire des courtisans (Bruxelles, 1630) et les Délices de la mort (Bruxelles, 1631). Il découle de leur collaboration une adéquation entre le texte et l'image, au point que les édition postérieures ne purent les séparer ; la réédition de 1671 (Bruxelles, Philippe Vlengart) emploie seule des gravures différentes, signées L.S. (Louis Spirinx), mais qui sont des copies de celles de 1632. FUNCK, le Livre belge à gravure. Véronique MEYER, "Un auteur du XVIIe siècle et l'illustration de ses livres. Jean Puget de la Serre."

Selden&#39;s appended dissertation (pp.453-553) contains many interesting observations about Bracton, Britton, Fleta, and Thornton "and shows what use was made of the Imperial law in England whilst the Romans governed here, at what time it was introduced into this nation, what use was formerly made of it, how long it continued, and when the use of it totally ceased in the King&#39;s Courts at Westminster.": Bridgman, A Short View of Legal Bibliography 87.
