        Mughal-Persian Illuminated Manuscript - Mazhab-e Ishq or Taj-ul-Mulk Gul Bakavli

      Full leather. Very good. In old Urdu, written in Nastaliq script. 44 pages with ten illuminated miniatures. Limp leather cover, approximately 5.5" x 8.5". Edge-worn leaves, one with a large stain at the top margin. Endpapers and cover appear to be early 19th century and much newer than the manuscript. One page contains and inscription and more recent stamp that translates as the Organization for Advancement of Urdu Language Bookstore. The Mazhab-e-Ishq or Gul Bakavli, loosely translated as The Flower of Love or The Religion of Love, is a traditional Persian-Southwest Asian adventure-romance about a prince's quest for a divine flower owned by the fairy Bakavli that would restore the eyesight of his father, the king. The beautiful, illuminated miniatures that accompany the text depict the prince and his retinue on horseback and foot hunting deer and other game, in combat, and defending themselves from tigers and crocodilic river creatures. I, as you probably suspect, do not read Urdu. However, I have an acquaintance who does. Although the manuscript is written in a very old form of the language that is nearly unintelligible to those who read modern Urdu, he was able to decipher enough of the text to identify the story. The Organization for Advancement of Urdu Language was likely related Fort William College, a school established by the East India Company in 1800 to provide language instruction for British diplomatic and military officers.

Having sailed to the Arctic under John Ross, the English naval officer William Edward Parry (1790-1855) believed that Lancaster Sound could provide the opening to the western sea. Equipped with two ships, the Hecla and the Gripper, he set out to confirm his suspicion in 1819. Parry discovered Prince Regent's Inlet, Melville Sound, and Banks Island, and surveyed the south shores of Barrow Strait. He reached 110° West longitude, but ice halted further westward advance. Parry commanded two further expeditions to the Arctic. "The immediate achievements of these voyages were the charting of hundreds of miles of coastline in the Canadian Arctic archipelago and the collecting of valuable data on Arctic natural history" (Hill).Some occasional minor foxing, a few (water) stains. Binding rubbed along the extremities, sides slightly chafed. Overall in very good condition and only slightly trimmed, leaving generous margins.

De Bruijn sailed for Archangel in 1701, proceeding to Moscow, where he stayed for over a year. In 1703 he left Moscow, traveling by way of Asia Minor (Turkey) to Persia, where he remained until 1705. After nearly a year in Isfahan, he headed for Persepolis, the ancient Achaemenid palace complex, the ruins of which had his special interest. He spent three months there, carefully drawing the ruins of the palace, the remaining reliefs and cuneiform inscriptions. His drawings of these ruins are the first reliable pictures of this palace to be accessible for Western scholars. Leaving Persia in 1705 he proceeded to India, Ceylon and the East Indies. He returned by much the same route, residing in Persia between 1706 and 1707, visiting, amongst other things, the ruins of Pasaragdes. The plates include large folding views of Moscow and Isfahan (194 x 40.5 cm!), portraits of Samoyeds, as well as many illustrations of local flora and fauna.Browned, some spotting, one plate with some paper torn off (ca. 9 x 2 cm), not affecting the image, some trails of wormholes in the last quires. Binding rebacked (as noted) with the original backstrip laid down and with new headbands. Overall a good copy on large paper.

      23,5 cm x 31 cm. 30 unnumbered text pages.With atlas volume bound in the original printed boards, twenty hand colored plates, one fold-out, and tissue guards. Original Hardcover. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Corners slightly rubbed. Some foxing thoughout book. Slight water damage to some of the text pages. Félix-Archimède Pouchet (August 26, 1800, in Rouen, France to December 6, 1872) was a French naturalist and a leading proponent of spontaneous generation of life from non-living materials, and as such an opponent of Louis Pasteur's germ theory. He was the father of Georges Pouchet (18331894), a professor of comparative anatomy. From 1828 he was director of the Rouen Museum of Natural History and the Rouen Jardin des Plantes. Later, in 1838, he became professor at the School of Medicine at Rouen. His major scientific work Hétérogénie was published in 1859. He also wrote a layperson's encyclopedia The Universe, published in 1870, which gives an overview of the sciences, but in which Pouchet ridicules Louis Pasteur's theories (calling them panspermism) and atomic theory. In 1847 Felix-Archimede Pouchet effectively launched the study of the physiology of cytology. (Wikipedia).

The complete collection includes 11 framed reproductions of his photography that are all part of this offer.

      Original autograph. Excellent condition. The only existing autograph of Fox Talbot on the international market at the time of cataloging. Very rare ! The collection with framed photographs comes with free international DHL Express shipping. William Henry Fox Talbot (11 February 1800 17 September 1877) was a British scientist, inventor and photography pioneer who invented the salted paper and calotype processes, precursors to photographic processes of the later 19th and 20th centuries. His work in the 1840s on photomechanical reproduction led to the creation of the photoglyphic engraving process, the precursor to photogravure. He was the holder of a controversial patent which impacted the early development of commercial photography in Britain. He was also a noted photographer who contributed to the development of photography as an artistic medium. He published The Pencil of Nature (184446), which was illustrated with original salted paper prints from his calotype negatives, and made some important early photographs of Oxford, Paris, Reading, and York.

Near Fine or even better, with only some signs of wear to the slipcase. The most interesting publication for all scientists. A complete set of Richard Feynman's famous lectures at CALTECH (California Institute of Technology). Here in the wonderful commemorative issue in slipcase.The publication includes for example the following lectures: Atoms in Motion / Basic Physics / The Relation to Physics in other Sciences / Conservation of Energy / Time and Distance / The Theory of Gravitation / Motion / Newton's Law of Dynamics / Conservation of Momentum / Vectors / Characteristics of Force / Vectors / Work and Potential Energy / The Special Theory of Relativity / Relativistic Energy and Momentum / Space-Time / Rotation in Two Dimensions / Center of Mass / Moment of Inertia / The Harmonic Oscillator / Algebra / Optics - The Principal of Least Time / The Origina of the Refractive Index / Color Vision / Quantum Behaviour / The Relation of Wave / Applications of Kinetic Theory / The Laws of Thermodynamics / Ratchet and Pawl / The Principal of Statistical Mechanics / The Kinetic Theory of Gases / Diffusion / Sound - The Wave Equation / Beats / Harmonics / Symmetry in Physical Law / etc. etc. Richard Phillips Feynman (May 11, 1918 February 15, 1988) was an American theoretical physicist known for his work in the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics, the theory of quantum electrodynamics, and the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled liquid helium, as well as in particle physics for which he proposed the parton model. For his contributions to the development of quantum electrodynamics, Feynman, jointly with Julian Schwinger and Sin-Itiro Tomonaga, received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965. He developed a widely used pictorial representation scheme for the mathematical expressions governing the behavior of subatomic particles, which later became known as Feynman diagrams. During his lifetime, Feynman became one of the best-known scientists in the world. In a 1999 poll of 130 leading physicists worldwide by the British journal Physics World he was ranked as one of the ten greatest physicists of all time. He assisted in the development of the atomic bomb during World War II and became known to a wide public in the 1980s as a member of the Rogers Commission, the panel that investigated the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster. In addition to his work in theoretical physics, Feynman has been credited with pioneering the field of quantum computing, and introducing the concept of nanotechnology. He held the Richard C. Tolman professorship in theoretical physics at the California Institute of Technology. Feynman was a keen popularizer of physics through both books and lectures, including a 1959 talk on top-down nanotechnology called There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom, and the three-volume publication of his undergraduate lectures, The Feynman Lectures on Physics. Feynman also became known through his semi-autobiographical books Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! and What Do You Care What Other People Think ? and books written about him, such as Tuva or Bust! and Genius: The Life and Science of Richard Feynman by James Gleick.

      [Dutch? circa ] 1800 - Pen, pencil & Water-Colour on paper, originally mounted on card (Very Good, slightly dusty and stained) 34 x 34 cm (13.4 x 13.4 inches). This stunning hand-drawn anamorphosis showcases a wooden chair on black and white tiles. Anamorphosis, deriving from the Greek prefix ana?, meaning back or again, and the word morphe, meaning shape or form, is a distorted projection or perspective requiring the viewer to use special devices or occupy a specific vantage point, or both to reconstitute the image. In this case the viewer needs to place a conical mirror in the middle circle in order to get an image of a chair and tiles, when looking at the middle point from above. The drawing was probably made in the Netherlands around 1800 or at the end of the 18th century.

        A New and Complete Illustration of the Occult Sciences: Or the Art of Foretelling Future Events and Contingencies . In Four Parts. Embelllished with Curious Copper-Plates.

      London: Printed for the Author; and Sold By Champante and Whitrow . And at the British Directory-Office, [c. 1800]. - Two volumes. 4to. Half-calf & marbled boards, olive coated end papers. [1130] pp., continuously paged. Spines have been covered with modern plastic tape, repairs to inner hinges, wear to corners, scattered foxing, generally very good otherwise. Covers are mostly detached, held in place by tape. Thirty-one engraved plates (30 called for, all present). One plate, a portrait of Sibly, has been mounted on a bound-in leaf (possibly supplied from another copy or edition - it is not represented in the list of plates at the end of Volume II, but the typography suggests that it belongs here). First published in 1784, this book was issued under several titles and combinations of titles; this one has a title page for Part II (it is pg. 275 in Vol I), with the title: "An Illustration of the Celestial Science of Astrology. Part the Second". . London, [np], 1798. The main title page in Volume II has a title slightly different from that in Volume I: "A complete Illustration of the Astrological and Occult Sciences ." and the imprint states: "Printed for the Proprietor .", instead of the Author. The title page for the third part (it is page 915 in Volume II) bears the same title as that of the second part, but is dated 1792. The title page for the fourth part (it is page 1057 in Volume II) uses the same title as the main title page of Volume II, and the same imprint, undated. Despite existing in a variety of forms, complete copies are not common. The plate of Edward Kelly invoking the Spirit of a Deceased Person is notable, and present here in nice condition.

        Abstract of the rules & regulations by which Hutchesones' Hospital is governed, in conformity to the original mortifications, or to the bye-laws, or established usage of the patrons. To which is added, the history of the said hospital, and an appendix, containing the principal papers relative thereto.

      Glasgow, printed in the Courier Office by W. Reid & Co. 1800. 8vo., 77 + (1) + xvi + (1)pp.* wanting the errata leaf, contemporary maroon half morocco over marbled boards, spine lettered gilt with raised bands, top edge gilt, some wear to the binding else a very good sound copy. First edition: apparently very rare. (ESTC locates copies at only 4 libraries: BL + NLS + Glasgow + Toronto). Although Hutchesone's Hospital was a 17th century philanthropic foundation, the original building had been demolished in the 1790s. A new building was then constructed between 1802 and 1805 to a design by the young Scottish architect David Hamilton. The original hospital building had been located in Trongate but, on its demolition in 1795, the patrons of the hospital purchased new grounds on Ingram Street. The new building, opened in 1805, was planned to accommodate offices and meeting rooms for the hospital patrons as well as school rooms, but just five years later the school became overcrowded and a new purpose built school was constructed next door. * This collation corresponds exactly with that of the copy in the National Library of Scotland, i.e. the plate referred to in the BL copy is not called for.
