        The Alcoran of Mahomet

      London: printed and are to be sold by Randal Taylor,, 1688. Translated out of Arabick into French, by the Sieur du Ryer, Lord of Malezair, and Resident for the French King, at Alexandria. And newly Englished, for the Satisfaction of all that Desire to look into the Turkish Vanities. To which is prefixed, the Life of Mahomet, the Prophet of the Turks, and Author of the Alcoran. With a Needful Caveat, or Admonition, for them who desire to know what Use may be made of, or if there be Danger in reading the Alcoran. Folio (368 x 232 mm). Contemporary panelled sheep, rebacked to style, edges sprinkled red. Contemporary ownership inscription, "H. S. G.", to the initial blank. Slightly rubbed, skilful restoration to extremities and lower outer corners, light scattered craquelure, 2 superficial worm-tracks to rear board, inner hinges partially cracked, but sound, marginal browning to pastedowns and free endpapers, front free endpaper chipped, title page soiled and with old restoration to upper outer corner, mild undulation to text-block, occasional light spotting or soiling to margins, worm-track to upper inner corner from sig. Hh to rear pastedown, the text never affected. A very good copy. First folio edition of the first English translation of the Qur'an. The "Needful Caveat" is signed Alexander Ross (c.1590-1654), who was chaplain to King Charles I and is usually assumed to have been responsible for the translation as a whole, which was first published in 1649 in quarto and octavo editions. It was based on the first edition in French, which had appeared in 1647. The work was originally intended for royal dedication but was not ready by the time of Charles's execution in January 1649; on 19 March parliament issued a warrant to seize all copies of the book and Ross was summoned before a parliamentary committee, though the translation was eventually published several weeks later, with a prefatory address entitled "The Translator to the Christian Reader" together with Ross's caveat; there is also a 13-page "Life of Mahomet". Ross's caveat, which compares Islam to other historical heresies from the Old Testament and classical antiquity, demonstrates an "interest in comparative religion [which] reflects a new, albeit highly sceptical engagement with Islamic doctrine" (Birchwood, Staging Islam in England: Drama and Culture, 1640-1685, p. 67). Although the English translation was made directly from the French without reference to Arabic, it proved highly influential in continental Europe, and was the basis for further versions in Dutch, German, and Russian (Leaman, ed., The Qur'an: An Encyclopaedia, p. 667). Taylor also published an octavo edition in the same year, of which copies occasionally appear for sale; this folio version is highly uncommon, with no copies traced at auction.

        Memoir's for a Natural History of Animals. Containing the Anatomical Descriptions Of Several Creatures Directed by The Royal Academy of Sciences at Paris

      London: Printed by Joseph Streater, for sale by T Basset, J Robinson, B Aylmer, Joh Southby And W Canning, 1688 A very good copy of this important work on comparative anatomy with engraved title; rubricated title and 30 plates. The original publication had 2 separate parts, both complete in themselves - the second section 'The Measure of the Earth' translated by Richard Waller, is not present. Alexander Pitfeild undertook to translate this work, originally led by Charles Perrault for the Royal Academy of Sciences in Paris. Animals, mostly from the royal menageries at Vincennes and Versailles, were supplied to the Royal Academy, for detailed study and dissection. The first publication including 13 species, appeared in 1671 with a second volume 5 years later. The publications had very short print runs and were very expensive being elephant folio with detailed art work mainly by Sebastien Leclerc. There was a growing desire to learn about natural history and the nature of animals and copies of Perrault's work were almost impossible to obtain. Pitfeild's translation was much needed and it became the only work published on comparative anatomy in England between 1660 and 1700. Richard Waller undertook the illustrations, copying Leclerc but reducing the size, taking care to keep the drawings in proportion. The second part, missing here, was undertaken not because it was linked in any way, but because it was important and of interest to the Royal Society. Copies of Pitfeild's translation are extremely scarce. This copy is in a new binding with cloth spine with title label and paper-covered boards. Contents: engraved title page; rubricated title page; permission for printing by the Royal Society (with 2 ink reference numbers at the top); dedication; To The Reader 2pp; preface 9pp; text pp 1- 267 with 30 plates (p 1 with small stamp to bottom margin; a few light ink spots to bottom side margins pp 48 & 49; small repaired edge tear bottom p141; alphabetical table of animal names with errata 2pp; index of anatomical matters 11pp; finis. Contents in very good clean condition. There is some staining which is mostly to the top outer page corners and varies in intensity. Occasional light marking elsewhere.

        Le secrétaire turc contenant l'art d'exprimer les pensées sans se voir, sans se parler et sans s'écrire. Avec les circonstances d'une avanture turcque & une relation très curieuse de plusieurs particularitez du Serrail qui n'avoient point encore esté sceues.

      Paris, Michel Guerrout, 1688. ____ Edition originale de ce livre très curieux. "Il y a bien des manières d'exprimer l'amour. ... La plupart des Turcs "ne savent ni lire, ni écrire, & n'ont aucune liberté de communiquer avec les femmes. Ils ne sont pourtant pas insensibles; au contraire... Ce peuple qui manque des moyens ordinaires pour faire connaitre sa passion, tâche d'en inventer d'extraordinaires. Les fleurs, les fruits, les bois, les aromates, les soies, l'or, l'argent, les couleurs, les étoffes, & enfin presque toutes les choses qui servent au commerce de la vie, entrent chez les Turcs dans celui de l'amour. ... De sorte qu'un petit paquet, gros comme le pouce, si l'on a égard à ce qu'il enferme, compose un discours fort expressif". L'auteur explique donc tous les symboles, les idées ou même les phrases qui sont attachés à ces objets, et donne en quelque sorte un manuel de conversation galante par ce procédé. Cet ouvrage est aussi l'occasion de détailler les moeurs exotiques du Sérail et contient l'aventure amoureuse de Gulbeyaz, principale esclave de la Sultane Validé. L'auteur, Du Vignau ou des Joanots du Vignau, a été pendant neuf ans secrétaire de l'ambassade de France à Istamboul. Il avait publié l'année précédente "L'Etat présent de la puissance ottomane, avec les causes de son accroissement et celles de sa décadence". Brunet II, 931 : "Livre singulier." La dorure du dos est en partie éffacée. Note sur un feuillet de garde : "Vendu le 9 Juillet 1809 à la vente des livres de M. C. M. faite par Tillard à Paris 3 # 19 s. Voyez le n° 744 de son catalogue imprimé."*-------*. In-12. Collation : (8), 340 pp. Veau brun, dos à nerfs orné. (Reliure de l'époque.).

        Faust Romantische Oper in 2 Aufzügen... im Klavierauszuge von P. Pixis... Zwey Akte 7. Rth 12 gr. [Piano-vocal score]

      Leipzig: C.F. Peters [PNs 1688; 1688 II], 1824. First Edition of the first version. Grove Music Online. OCLC no. 163227488. Hirsch IV no. 1283. Göthel p. 336. Faust, to a libretto by Joseph Carl Bernard, was first performed in Prague at the Estates Theatre on September 1, 1816. "... Faust marks an important landmark in the development of German Romantic opera. Spohr's concern to create scene complexes, rather than merely a string of individual numbers, points the way towards the continuity of his later operas. His striking use of chromatic harmony was recognized by Weber, who wrote in his introduction to the Prague première: 'this dark, Romantic spirit-world is ideally matched with the composer's inmost musical character. Owing to this fact the work as a whole is marked by great aptness of colour - grand musical and dramatic effects of charm and tenderness alternating with shatteringly powerful effects in the ensembles and choruses'." "Regarded by many contemporaries as worthy of a place beside Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven in the pantheon of the greatest composers, [Spohr] has, together with Gluck and Cherubini, been allotted a considerably lower status by posterity. Mozart's Figaro and Wagner's Tristan were both composed during Spohr's lifetime; his own work looks, Janus-like, towards both the formalism and clarity of the Classical tradition, and the structural and harmonic experimentation associated with 19th-century Romanticism." Clive Brown in Grove Music Online.. Oblong folio. Full contemporary dark green pebbled cloth with nitials "A. v B." in gilt to upper, titling gilt to spine. 1f. (title), [i] (table of contents), 2-99, [i] (blank), 3-110 pp. Each act separately paginated. Engraved. Text in German and Italian. Two publisher's handstamps to lower portion of title. Binding slightly worn. Minor dampstaining, most noticeable to first six leaves; some foxing.

        Geliebte Eltern! - [Handgeschriebener hamburger Weihnachtswunsch auf altkolorierter Kupferstich-Vorlage von 1742].

      Aufwendig gestaltete Schmuckblatt aus der Werkstatt von Gottfried Christian Pingeling (1688-1769) mit handschriftlichem Text von Hans Gottfried Knack an seine Eltern. Die reich kalligraphierten Zierschrift des Widmungskopfes stammt von einem unbekannten Schreibmeister, der Text von Knack. - Der Weihnachtswunsch entstammt einer seit dem 18. Jahrhundert in Norddeutschland gebräuchlichen Tradition. Der Brief wurde den Beschenkten am Weihnachtsabend übergeben, dazu wurde der auswendig gelernte Text vorgetragen. - Das Blatt trägt einen Rahmen von insgesamt neun Kupfervignetten mit biblischen Szenen aus dem Lukasevangelium (Illustrationen zum Besuch Marias bei Elisabeth Geburt und Beschneidung Jesus Christus) und symbolischen Darstellungen (Allegorien der vier Kontinente als geschmückte Frauengestalten). Oben mittig platziert ist die Titelvignette aus Blumenranken (mit der handschriftlichen Ortsangabe Hamburg und der Jahreszahl 1742), flankiert von zwei Engeln. Rückseitig die Adressierung an Hans Gottfried Knack (Senior). - Das Blatt ist etwas krude in Rot, Gelb und Grün koloriert. Das Atelier Pingeling gilt als bedeutendste Werkstatt der frühen, oft künstlerisch aufwendigen Bögen. Zu den Hamburger Weihnachtswünschen aus dieser Werkstatt, siehe Hinrichsen 2010 (Weihnachtsbriefe und Wunschzettel), 17ff. - Bei Hinrichsen ist nur ein einziges älteres Blatt dokumentiert - ein nicht koloriertes Blatt von 1739 (Seite 55). --- Das Blatt ist stark angerändert. Fehlstellen mit Bildverlust an den oberen Blattecken. Einige kleine Löcher und größere Risse. Die Rückseite ist stark und unschön fleckig. Trotz der Mängel sehr schönes Exemplar, dessen mechanische Schäden den interimischen Charakter der Weihnachtswünsche noch unterstreichen.

        Cantus omnis ecclesiasticus ad hebdomadae maioris Missas, passionem D.N.I.C., Officia Tenebrarum, Lamentationes, Benedictiones, Processiones, &c.

      Mutinae, ex Typographia Haeredum Cassiani, 1688. In folio (cm. 33,1); mezza pelle dell'Ottocento: antiporta con croce e musica in xilografia; frontespizio in rosso e nero; pp. 12 nn., 265 + 11 nn. + un foglietto di "errata" inserito tra p. 205 e la prima carta n.n. (prima errata). Testo incorniciato; molte raffinate vignette in xilografia (ultima cena, crocifissione, resurrezione...). A piena pagina diverse croci con all'interno della musica ed al lato due angeli. Bella copia. Marzio Erculei nacque ad Otricoli (Terni)... Quasi certamente compì i suoi studi musicali a Roma nel collegio germanico-ungarico... Dopo una breve comparsa nella cappella del Duomo di Milano, nel 1651, già ordinato sacerdote entrò come "musico ecclesiastico" al servizio della corte Estense di Modena, rimanendovi fino al 1674. In quegli anni si distinse come soprano in alcune opere date a Modena. Nel 1674, dopo aver invano tentato di ottenere un canonicato nel duomo di Modena, si ritirò dal servizio presso la corte ed entrò nella locale Congregazione religiosa della Beata Vergine e di S. Carlo, proseguendo l'insegnamento della musica e del canto e dando vita ad una sorta di scuola per giovani cantanti... Tra i suoi allievi: Antonio Maria Pacchioni, Rinaldo Bertoni e Francesco Montecchi... All'attività didattica del canto, in particolare di quello gregoriano, sono per lo più collegate le sue pubblicazioni: "Cantus omnis ecclesiasticus" contenente oltre ai canti gregoriani della Settimana Santa, alcuni falsobordoni a tre o quattro voci, adespoti e forse attribuibili all'E. stesso. Nel 1694, trovandosi a Loreto, chiese al Duca di Modena Rinaldo d'Este di potervisi trattenere in qualità di cappellano ducale presso il santuario della Santa Casa, "con l'obbligo d'applicare quotidianamente il Santo sacrificio per la salute e conservatione" della Casa Estense. Ottenuto l'incarico richiesto, l'E. rimase a Loreto non oltre il 1702, poiché il 15 gennaio di quell'anno risulta essere di nuovo a Modena nel Collegio di San Carlo, dove morì il 5 agosto 1706.

        Endimione: favola per musica da recitarsi nel Reggio Teatro di Torino. Alla presenza della loro A.A. R.R.Turin, Giovanni Battista Fontana, 1699. 12mo. With the woodcut coat-of-arms of Victor Amadeus II, Duke of Savoy on the title-page. Contemporary stiff wrappers covered with gold-brocade paper.

      - B. Forment, "Moonlight on Endymion: in search of 'Arcadian opera,' 1688-1721", in: Journal of seventeenth-century music XIV(2008), pp. 1-36, the present ed. at p. 16; ICCU (2 copies); KVK (3 copies, including the same 2). Very rare libretto printed for distribution to the audience at one of the earliest performances of the 1692 Arcadian opera Endimione, based on the classical Greek myth of Endymion and written in Italian verse by Francesco Lemene (1634-1704). It includes extensive additions to the text that probably appear here for the first time, making it an essential source for any study of the myth's history and development. It may also be the only edition to name the creators of stage sets for the opera, designed for the 1699 Turin production by Ferdinando Galli Bibiena (1657-1743), a well-known architect, designer and painter in service of the Duke of Parma, and executed by Pietro Gio[v]anni Abbati (1683-1745), who had been his apprentice and was active in Parma and Turin. Endymion as revived in the 1690s has been called "a paradigm of the earliest operatic endeavors of the Arcadian Academy" (Forment). The Accademia degli Arcadi was a utopian reaction against the Baroque, attempting to turn Italian culture back to its glorious Renaissance roots. Directly or indirectly it probably inspired many of the later renditions of the Endymion story, including Bach's 1713 Hunt Cantata and Keats's 1818 poem that begins, "A thing of beauty is a joy for ever".Owner's inscription. With a faint water stain at the foot in the first 2 quires, minor foxing, small defects in the paper of 1 leaf, and some small black spots on the title-page, but still in good condition. The wrappers are slightly rubbed with a couple bent corners and an occasional small tear or stain, but also in good condition.
