George Sale (1697, Canterbury, Kent, England 1736, London, England) was an Orientalist and practising solicitor, best known for his 1734 translation of the Qur'an into English. He was also author of The General Dictionary, in ten volumes, folio. He was educated at the King's School, Canterbury, and in 1720 became a student of the Inner Temple. It is known that he trained as a solicitor in his early years but took time off from his legal pursuits, returning at need to his profession. Sale was an early member of the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge. Sale became seriously ill for eight days before his death, and died at Surrey Street, The Strand, of fever on November 13, 1736. Sale was buried at St. Clement Danes. His family consisted of a wife and five children. He took the time to apply himself in the study of the eastern and other languages, both ancient and modern. Carolus Dadichi, the king's interpreter, helped Sale in his studies of oriental dialects. Sale reputedly spent 25 years in Arabia, thus acquiring his knowledge of the Arabic language and customs this was the basis of Voltaire's statements in the Dictionnaire Philosophique (articles Alcoran, Arot and Marot). On the other hand Harold Lyon Thomson, writing in the Dictionary of National Biography, stated that he never left his native country. In 1734, Sale published the translation of the Qur'an, dedicated to John Lord Carteret. Sale provided numerous notes and a "Preliminary Discourse" which was manifest with in-depth knowledge of Eastern habits, manners, traditions, and laws. Voltaire bestowed high praise on Sale's version of the Koran. Sale did not, however, place Islam at an equal level with Christianity.He stated: "As Mohammed gave his Arabs the best religion he could, preferable, at least, to those of the ancient pagan lawgivers, I confess I cannot see why he deserves not equal respect, though not with Moses or Jesus Christ, whose laws came really from heaven, yet with Minos or Numa, notwithstanding the distinction of a learned writer, who seems to think it a greater crime to make use of an imposture to set up a new religion, founded on the acknowledgment of one true God, and to destroy idolatry, than to use the same means to gain reception to rules and regulations for the more orderly practice of heathenism already established." Sale's translation of the Qu'ran has been reprinted into modern times. In January 2007, Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to the United States Congress, was sworn in on an old edition of Sale's Koran, donated to the Library of Congress in the early 19th century by Thomas Jefferson. Sale was also a corrector of the Arabic New Testament (1726) issued by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge. He acquired a library with valuable rare manuscripts of Persian, Turkish, and Arabic origins (which is now held in the Bodleian Library, Oxford). (Wikipedia)

        La Liguria o Stato della Republica di Genova con altri Stati adiacenti

      Roma 1697 - Grande carta geografica di tutta la Liguria, che comprende anche parte delle regioni confinanti, Piemonte, Emilia Romagna e Toscana. La carta è basata su quella, più grande, di Giuseppe Chafrion, ed è incisa da Antonio Barbey. I centri abitati principali sono rappresentati in pianta. Sono distinti arcivescovadi, vescovadi, feudi della chiesa e feudi imperiali. Tre scale grafiche in miglia d'Italia, miglia genovesi, leghe di Francia. La carta è dedicata al cardinale Giovanni Battista Spinola, e fu pubblicata Mercurio Geografico, raccolta di carte edita a Roma tra il 1660 ed il 1730 dalla tipografia de Rossi. Nel corso degli anni l’atlante fu arricchito da un numero sempre maggiore di carte; le aggiunte del tardo ‘700, come questa, sono pertanto molto più rare delle carte presenti dalle prime edizioni. Incisione in rame, leggere ossidazioni ed una gora d'acqua in alto, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Map taken from the "Mercurio Geografico", a collection of maps printed in Rome between 1660 and 1730 by De Rossi. Along the years the Atlas has been enriched with many plates; those added at the end of the XVIII century, like the present one, are much more rare to find than the maps of the first editions. Copperplate, in excellent condition. Dimensioni 440 1050mm

        Prospetto del Casale di Carroceto. ampliato con vastissima fabrica di legname nella forma presente in occasione del passaggio che fece a Nettuno la Santita di N. S. Papa Innocenzo XII

      Roma 1697 - Rara incisione che raffigura l'ampliamento del casale di proprietà del principe Giovan Battista Borghese, in occasione della storica visita di papa Innocenzo XII, il 22 aprile del 1697. Come raccontato in diverse cronache anonime dell'epoca, quel giorno del 1697 il Papa, diretto ad Anzio per l'inaugurazione del nuovo porto neroniano che aveva fatto fortificare, si fermò a metà strada nella tenuta di Carroceto, allora appartenente al principe Giovanna Battista Borghese che l'aveva comprata dai Colonna. Con grande stupore di tutta la corte papale, si scopre che il rozzo casale è sostituito da "un gran palazzo alla Regia di tavole tutto dipinto", la cui costruzione ha sacrificato un’intera selva. La stupefacente reggia effimera in legno e tela incorpora il casale e si articola in un corpo centrale a due piani e nove assi di finestre, con due porte –una finta e una vera-, sormontate dallo stemma papale; ai lati due ali a un piano con sette assi. L’edificio polarizza un accampamento, geometricamente ordinato, capace di alloggiare e rifocillare tutto il convoglio, animali inclusi. Su progetto dell’architetto dei Borghese Tommaso Mattei, allievo di Fontana, e con il significativo apporto di Domenico Botta, magister ludi, dei principi ospiti, sono allestiti ricoveri per i servitori, i cavalleggeri e le guardie; tettoie per quattrocentotrenta cavalli, forniti di biade e di paglia, oltre che di un abbeveratoio appositamente montato. Nel piazzale sono approntati forni, nevaie, grotte per i vini, due fontane con vino bianco e rosso, cucine, credenze e bottiglierie distinte per i diversi gruppi del seguito. Ai cardinali e ai nobili sono destinati i due appartamenti speculari al piano terra, muniti di dispensa, sala da pranzo e stanza di riposo. Il primo piano è per l’appartamento del Papa. I soffitti delle stanze del papa, dipinti dal pittore bolognese Giovanni de Alesandris, affiancato per i fregi dall’indoratore Silvestro Ferdichini, celebrano la Chiesa, le virtù del pontefice e quelle del munifico ospite. Il colossale apparato è costato al principe non meno di ventimila scudi: una cifra iperbolica, se si confronta con il finanziamento per i lavori condotti al porto dall’architetto Alessandro Zinaghi, che ammonta a quindicimila scudi!Il papa soggiorna poche ore a Carroceto, dove sosterà anche al ritorno, quindi prosegue per Nettuno, dove lo attende lo sfarzo mirabile del palazzo del principe Giovan Battista Pamphili, che ha convocato, per l’occasione, i migliori musici di Roma. E affinché la memoria di tale fantastico apparato non si dissolva con la sua caduca fisicità, il principe commissiona ad Alessandro Specchi la veduta panoramica del palazzo e il suo spaccato prospettico con gli arredi minuziosamente raffigurati. I due disegni, tradotti in stampa da Domenico de’Rossi, sono alla base di due quadri del pittore tedesco Cristiano Reder, conservati in palazzo Borghese a Roma. (Claudia Conforti, "Due brevi viaggi di Innocenzo XII"). Acquaforte, datata in lastra in basso a sinistra, impressa du due fogli di carta vergata uniti, applicati su carta vergata di rinforzo. Mancanza nella legenda del margine inferiore, nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Opera estremamente rara. A rare engraved-view of the temporary architecture of Tommaso Mattei and furnishings commissioned by prince Giovan Battista Borghese for the Casale Borghese in Carroceto, to celebrate the visit of Pope Innocent XII on 22 April 1697. Examines views of the festivities-engravings by Alessandro Specchi after Mattei's drawings, and paintings attributed to Christian Reder. Etching, dated in the plate lower left, printed on two sheets of contemporary paper joined, repaired areas with loss of text, generally in good condition. Very rare.

        Parte Occidentale del Mediterraneo /Carta Maritima della parte orientale del Mare Mediterraneo

      Venezia 1697 - Due grandi portolani del Mediterraneo, uno dedicato alla parte occidentale, l’altro a quella orientale, del capitano genovese Francesco Maria Levanto, qui nell'edizione di Vincenzo Maria Coronelli. I due portolani di Levanto, furono pubblicati ad apertura de "Lo specchio del mare", atlante-portolano del Mediterraneo pubblicato nella sua prima edizione a Genova nel 1664 ed in seconda edizione nel 1679. Nonostante l’opera non avesse avuto grande fortuna all’epoca, forse perché riconosciuta come poco originale dai cartografi coevi, il Coronelli – che quasi certamente non conosceva il modello e le derivazioni nordiche – la volle inserire nel suo Atlante Veneto, come ultimo volume dell’edizione del 1698. Il cartiglio della parte occidentale reca la dedicata al conte Fabrizio Antonio Monsignani, erudito forlivese e membro dell'Accademia dei Filergiti. Ciascun portolano, misura mm 510 x 402. Splendidi esemplari, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Ottimi esemplari, bella impressione, fogli completi dei margini bianchi, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Two large maps of Mediterranea sea - one for the western area and one for the eastern area, prepared in the Portolano style, by Francesco Maria Levanto, in the edition by Vincenzo Maria Coronelli. The two Levanto's maps, were published in his "Lo Specchio del Mare" (The Mirror of the Sea) the portolan atlas of Mediterranean published in its first edition in Genoa in 1664 ,and the second edition in 1679. Despite the atlas didn't has a great success at the time, perhaps because it was recognized as unoriginal by contemporary cartographers, Coronelli - who almost certainly did not know the model and the Nordic plates - wanted to include the atlas as the last volume in the 1698 edition of his Atlante Veneto. The cartouche of the western part bears the dedicated to Count Fabrizio Antonio Monsignani, a member of the Academy of Filergiti. Each plater, consisting of two sheets joined together, measuring 510 x 402 mm. Magnificient examples, in perfect condition. Dimensioni [Attributes: First Edition]

Durante la loro missione in Cina furono accolti anche a Pechino dall’Imperatore Kangxi alla corte del quale ottennero grande rispetto dopo aver guarito il sovrano da una malattia utilizzando alcuni medicinali che si erano portati dietro dall’Europa. L’opera di Le Comte oltre a descrivere gli usi e costumi della corte cinese, i monumenti e la religione, le qualità dei cinesi ed il viaggio intrapreso dai gesuiti dal Siam fino a Pechino, illustra con dovizia di particolari gli strumenti matematici ed astronomici cinesi (varie tavole rappresentano infatti strumenti astronomici) che suscitarono nei gesuiti grande ammirazione per la loro precisione ed ingegnosità. Fra le tavole più volte ripiegate una veduta dell’Osservatorio astronomico di Pechino, una veduto della Città Proibita e una tavola dedicata alla lingua cinese. Opera rara ed in buone-ottime condizioni di conservazione. Raro a reperirsi completo di tutte le tavole.

        North and South America - Carolus Allard, c. 1697.

      NORTH AND SOUTH AMERICA HEIGHTENED WITH GOLD?Recentissima Novi Orbis Sive Americae Septentrionalis et Meridionalis Tabula?. Copper engraving published in Amsterdam by Carolus Allard c. 1697. Original hand colouring, heightened with gold.Rare map of North and South America, the first to show important corrections to the mapping of the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River Valley.The cartouche is especially attractive, with an allegorical figure of America seated within a sugar cane field inhabited by exotic animals and scenes relating to mankind?s eternal search for gold.Allard?s map includes one of the boldest depictions of the myth of Terra Esonis, a land bridge extending from Japan to the Straits of Anian, here with over a dozen place names and only a small strait on either side. We see a beautiful example of California as an Island, based upon Nicholas Sanson?s second projection. The open ended Great Lakes and primitive early treatment of the Mississippi River are also noteworthy, as is the early Rio Colorado, extending to a lake in Apachas and Navaio regions of the Southwest, and mistakenly referencing Taos and Xila, indicating a confusion with the Rio Grande regarding the Taos reference. The interior of South America includes tribal vignettes in Brazil and a misprojected, overly wide projection of the continent.An further interesting aspect of the map is the depiction of early Australia. Quiri Regio, the Northern parts of what would become Australia, are also well delineated, showing what would become Carpentaria, the Gulf of Carpentaria and Arnhem Land. A massive island of Isabella appears above Australia. Several early place names and islands are also shown.The map of America by Allard is derived from that of Frederick de Wit, c. 1675.Reference: Burden, The Mapping of North America II: 724Price: ?2.200,- (excl.

      1697 - Editio princeps of a popular Arabic text, here published together with the translation in Latin. A rare and curious work, presenting at the one hand a critical text-edition for the Arabic language-student, and at the other hand it is de facto the editio princeps of a manuscript, very popular in the Near and Far East, and containing an Arabic Evangely of the Youth of Christ, belonging to the so-called apocryphe bible literature. Compiled from older apocryphe evangelies, like the Proto-Evangely by Jacobi and the Thomas-Evangely, and enlarged with all sorts of Western religious legends, it was especially popular with the Christian heretic sect of the Nestorians or Chaldeans at Syria, Persia, and Egypt. It also spread to the far East, to China, India and Japan. The editor, Henricus Sike, came from Bremen in Germany, and at the time he was a student at the Utrecht University, where he made a great impression on Reeland, a.o. Later he became professor in Hebrew at Cambridge, in England.- Our copy without title.- Titel fehlt. Gewicht in Gramm: 500 [Attributes: First Edition]

His maps of ancient geography, characterized by careful, accurate work and based largely on original research, are especially valuable. He left unknown areas of continents blank and noted doubtful information as such; compared to the lavish maps of his predecessors, his maps looked empty. His first serious map, that of Ancient Greece, was published when he was fifteen. At the age of twenty-two, he was appointed one the king's geographers, and began to attract the attention of first authorities. D'Anville's studies embraced everything of geographical nature in the world's literature, as far as he could muster it: for this purpose, he not only searched ancient and modern historians, travelers and narrators of every description, but also poets, orators and philosophers. One of his cherished subjects was to reform geography by putting an end to the blind copying of older maps, by testing the commonly accepted positions of places through a rigorous examination of all the descriptive authority, and by excluding from cartography every name inadequately supported.

[...] Der von Johann Melchior Füssli in Zürich ausgebildete Kupferstecher verbrachte seine Lehrjahre 1719-24 in Augsburg bei Johann Daniel Herz und 1724-28 in Amsterdam bei Bernard Picart, hielt sich dann in London auf und kehrte 1729 über Paris nach Zürich zurück. 1749-75 war er Eigentümer der Gerichtsherrschaft Maur und wohnte dort in der Burg, die er 1750 um einen Anbau erweiterte. H.s Bedeutung für die Buchgeschichte liegt in der Herausgabe von Druckgrafiken und illustrierten Druckschriften zur Landeskunde: 1740-41 drei Folgen mit 41 Ansichten von Herrschaftszentren des Zürcher Gebiets, 1748-51 Zürcher Ausrufer (156 Figuren), 1749 Basler Ausrufer und Zürcher Kleidertrachten (je 52 Figuren), 1750 Zürcher Kirchenbräuche (15 Abbildungen) und 1754-77 die Topografie der Eidgenossenschaft mit 328 Tafeln (unvollendet). Diese und weitere Publikationen, darunter als umfangreichstes Werk "Heilige Ceremonien" (1738-49) mit 540 Abbildungen nach Picart, bezeugen das unermüdl. Bestreben des Alleinunternehmers, nützl. Kenntnisse in Wort und Bild zu verbreiten (HLS).
