The "Marifetname", or "Book of Gnosis", completed in 1756, is a compilation of astronomical, astrological, mathematical, anatomical, psychological, philosophical as well as mystical religious texts. It is famous for containing the first treatment of post-Copernican astronomy by a Muslim scholar. "Sorte d'Encyclopedie, traitant successivement des croyances musulmanes, de la cosmologie, de l'anatomie etc." (Zenker). Among the astronomical and geographical illustrations are a world map in two hemispheres, a map of the poles, the lunar phases and diagrams showing the solar system and earth's orbit. - The printing office in Bulaq, near Cairo, was set up at the command of the Viceroy of Egypt, Muhammad Ali Pascha (1769-1849). Almost all its productions were printed in Ottoman Turkish with Arabic types and are today considered very rare. - Slight waterstaining to margins near beginning; a few pages near beginning and end remargined.

        The Poetical Romances of Tristan;Tristan: Recueil de ce qui Reste des Poëms Relatifs a Ses Aventures

      Londres: Guillaume Pickering, 1835. First edition. Hardcover. Very good. 2 volumes. 12mo. Illustrated with lithographs of the manuscripts, some with initials colored by hand in red and blue. Title page in Volume 1 in both English and French.. Publisher's original cloth in a small sand grain design. This is clearly Winterbottom's Type 'M' (Tomlinson). Krupp (p.30) notes this as San1, but without a Winterbottom cross-reference. She ascribes an appearance date of 1850 for this early design; to find it on books published in 1835 is a treat. That it would appear on a Pickering work should be no surprise. Pickering started experimenting with bookcloth as early as 1823 through his binder, Archibald Leighton, who was responsible for many innovations in the design and use of early bookcloth. The text constitutes mainly the remains of Thomas of Britain's Tristan Romance, composed in the 12th and 13th centuries in Norman French and Greek, here edited and rendered in the originals by Fr. Michel.  This is a very good set with only light signs of age and wear.  Fairly scarce. A third volume with additional Tristan fragments was issued in 1839, not present her. There is an old note on the front free endpaper indicating that this is one of 250 copies, but we have not been able to confirm that limitation. This is the first printed edition of Thomas of Britain. It dates from about 1170, and includes Tristan's marriage and the Hall of Statues, his return to Cornwall, and the lovers' deaths, using the motif of the sails. Reiss, Reiss & Taylor, Nrs. 930 and 956. A translation into English was issued by Pickering the same year.

        Manuscrit]. Souvenirs d'un voyage fait en Italie en 1832-1833.

      1835 - Petit in-4 de (4)-321 pp. couvertes d'une écriture fine et très lisible, texte soigneusement calligraphié dans un encadrement noir (environ 20 lignes par page), demi-basane glacée tabac, dos lisse orné de filets et guirlandes dorés, tranches mouchetées (reliure de l'époque). Très bien retranscrite, voici une relation de voyage en Italie d'un classicisme à toute épreuve, tant pour les itinéraires que pour les villes visitées ou pour les notes et appréciations suggérées à l'auteur anonyme par les monuments, sites et merveilles naturelles aperçues. C'est une relation déjà de style touristique : aucune notation sur la personne du narrateur, sa situation sociale ou ses opinions politiques, mais un rapport exact, jour par jour, des déplacements et des "curiosités" du périple, avec, de ci, de là, un aperçu sur les moeurs indigènes. La descente de France en Italie, commencée le 30 novembre 1832 depuis Paris, suit la route du Rhône et de la Provence (Lyon, Avignon, Aix, Marseille et Toulon, Grassse). La rentrée dans la péninsule se fait à Nice et se poursuit par la Riviera et les Apennins (Gênes, La Spezia, Florence, Pérouse, Spolète, Narni). Le retour se fera depuis Naples par la côte adriatique (Lorette, Ancône, Césène, Bologne, Padoue, Venise) et la Suisse (Sion, Vevey, Genève). Le tout était déjà rôdé dans les circuits proposés aux voyageurs à l'époque, et permettait une vue circulaire de la péninsule, sans avoir à repasser par la même route. Seuls deux villes ont droit à une description détaillée, et là encore, le choix est attendu : d'une part, Rome et ses environs, où notre voyageur demeure du 8 janvier au 18 avril 1833, ce qui lui donna l'occasion d'assister aux cérémonies pontificales de la Semaine Sainte, toujours très prisées des étrangers (pp. 60-141 de la relation) ; d'autre part, Naples et ses environs, épuisés en 6 excursions successives, et qui le retint du 20 avril au 21 juin (pp. 148-243). Dans cette dernière période, il eut même la "chance" d'assister à une des éruptions du Vésuve (31 mai 1833, à minuit). En-dehors de ces deux capitales, seules Venise et Milan retiennent un peu l'attention du touriste (respectivement pp. 264-285 et 288-303). Chacune des autres localités de transit ou même de visite est expédiée en une page ou un paragraphe. Exemplaire du vicomte de Noailles, avec vignette ex-libris contrecollée sur les premières gardes.

(#151684). First edition. "A story chain set somewhere in the Turkish empire in the early nineteenth century ... [the stories] are not so much reminiscent of THE THOUSAND AND ONE NIGHTS as of contemporary British fiction, being tales of the sea, general adventure, and romance. Noteworthy are the seven tales told by the renegade French sailor Huckaback. Admittedly tall tales, they draw heavily on the tradition of the imaginary voyage. Several are of science fiction interest." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1444.

        Le Monde comme il est

      Paris: Eugène Renduel, 1835. 2 vols., 8vo. 560 pp. 438 pp - Paris: Eugène Renduel, 1835. 2 vols., 8vo. 560 pp. 438 pp. This dark comedic novel was commercially successful when issued and garnered the approval of Balzac ("Mais peut-être, avec autant de talent, étiez-vous tenu de tout savoir ? Le livre est d'une incontestable supériorité, de trop de supériorité même, il sera la lecture favorite de ceux qui dégustent, des hommes d'élite, et ceux-là sont en minorité."). It paints a picture of a "society rotten to the core, a society without faith, without law, without faith, without remorse and without pleasure." The protagonist, Edmond d'Offlize, boasts in a letter to a friend that he can seduce a very rich heiress whose face is so ugly that it would be acceptable "only in the land of the frogs." She is then pursued by d'Offlize and a friend (with whom he may share a romantic relationship) and a great muddle of manners ensues. The Marquis de Custine (1790-1857) was a French aristocrat, perhaps most famous for his travel book, Empire of the Czar: A Journey Through Eternal Russia, published in 1839. He was avowedly homosexual and lived openly in Paris with his lover Edward Saint-Barbe, who remained his life companion. Aloys, his anonymously published novel deals explicitly with homosexuality long before such subjects were commonly written about. See Muhlstein, A Taste for Freedom: The Life of Astolphe de Custine.Very good in later black boards, light wear, early signature on endpaper in volume 1. Uncommon.

        Unrecorded English Manuscript Translation of Ahmet Resmî Efendi's Narrative "Viyana Sefaretnamesi" .

      England, circa 1835 8vo. 19 pages, plus introduction, penned on 6 string-tied double leafs bearing the watermark 'Cansell 1834.' Item measures approximately 10,5 x 17,5 cm. Slight age-toning, otherwise in very good condition. Unrecorded English manuscript translation of Ahmet Resmî Efendi's lesser known narrative "Viyana Sefaretnamesi" in which he described his diplomatic embassy to Vienna during the Seven Years' War. This is an abridged work, providing a summary of the journey from Istanbul to Vienna in 1757, and most importantly, his official meeting with Francis I, Holy Roman Emperor, King of Germany. The English writer includes footnotes on some Ottoman custom and terminology, drawing these from the work of Austrian diplomat and orientalist Joseph von Hammer-Purgstall (1774-1856) who, at around this same time, had translated the earlier Sefâretnâme of Evliya Efendi ito English. Ahmet Resmî Efendi's report "Viyana Sefaretnamesi" was written immediately upon his return to Istanbul from Vienna in 1758. It should not be confused with his more commonly known account of his subsequent embassy to Berlin in 1763-1764, "Sefaretnâme-yi-Prusya". Both of the works, on the Vienna and Berlin embassies, were translated into German in 1809 by celebrated Austrian diplomat and orientalist Joseph von Hammer-Purgstall (1774-1856), who is mentioned in the writer's prefatory notes. [In 1834 Von Hammer also published an English translation of the earlier Seyahatname of Evliya Efendi, covering the first two volumes on Constantinople and Anatolia. Von Hammer titled his translation "Evliya Efendi." To this day, there is no English translation of the entire Seyahatname, only of various parts, Von Hammer's being the longest single English translation.] Sefâretnâme, literally "the book of embassy", was a genre of Turkish literature which was closely related to seyahatname which means "the book of travels", but was specific to the recounting of journeys and experiences of an Ottoman ambassador in a foreign land and capital, usually in Europe. Sefâretnâme were edited by their authors with a view to their presentation to the Sultan and to his high administration, thus also bearing a semi-official character, their objective being to make them "feel" the foreign country in question, as much as informing on it. For this reason, and for the literary qualities that were sought in order to attain their objective, they remain of lasting interest. An Ottoman embassy was despatched to the royal court of Vienna in late 1757, to formally announce the accession of Sultan Mustafa III to the throne, Ahmed Resmî being appointed to the task of presenting the Imperial news to Emperor and King Francis I. It was customary at the time to send emissaries to friendly Christian states, to make such announcements. Simultaneous to Ahmet Resmi's embassy to Vienna, embassies were also sent to Poland and Russia. With an entourage of over sixty men, including court officials, Ahmet Resmi departed on 2 December 1757. The envoy consisted of the Commander of the Palace Guard, the keeper of the Seal, the Guardian of the Treasury, two Sergeant-at-Arms, the Secretary of the Embassy, an imam, an interpreter, a ceremonial sword-bearer, some thirty men of the elite Janissary Palace Guards, and twenty-two servants. The trip to Vienna took 3 months, after forty days arriving in Belgrade, where, onboard a vessel on the Sava river on 25 January 1758, he was introduced by the Minister of Finance to his Austrian guide. On the outskirts of Vienna, three days were spent resting and making arrangements for his entrance into the city. Finally, on 13 March 1758, Ahmet Resmi and his retinue proceeded into Vienna, where at a bridge, they were met by interpreter and a cavalry regiment who escorted them all to Leopoldstat, a residence for ambassadors. On 19 April the Turkish ambassador was taken to the palace in the Emperor's carriage, with quite a ceremony, as described in the present manuscript. He was first received by Francis I, who impressed him immensely, also described herein, and three days later by Mary Theresa, the same ceremony and formalities taking place on both occasions. Staying in Vienna for 4 months, the foreigners were treated with superb hospitality by the Hasburg monarchs, the hosts preparing great banquets and entertainment. Ahmet Resmi and his court officials in turn hosted a meal for the Austrian court officials. Touring, however, was hampered by the fear of the city being attacked by the armies of Frederick the Great. Late June saw their departure, after approval and provisions for safe passage from the Austrian monarchs. [It was the second year of the Seven Years' War. Frederick the Great of Prussia, and Archduchess of Austria Maria Theresa, were equally dissatisfied with the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle which had ended the Austrian War of Succession in 1748, and were once again at war.] Upon his return to Istanbul early September 1958, Ahmet Resmi documented his detailed observations of the Hasburg Empire in "Viyana Sefaretnamesi" [Vienna Embassy], including politics, government, war, and Austrian custom, which generated a new political interest on behalf of the Turkish Court to further acquaint itself with European nations. This also laid the foundation for his subsequent appointment, an embassy to Berlin. The embassy to Vienna 1757-1758 was followed by a similar appointment, the first ever Turkish embassy to the court of Frederick the Great in Berlin in 1763-1764. After each embassy, Ahmed Resmî submitted a detailed report on the geography of his passage and the politics of the courts he encountered. In the case of the Berlin embassy, he left behind not just an account of diplomatic niceties but also a portrayal of Frederick the Great and a description of the Seven Years' War. His observations abroad initiated a profound priority within the Ottoman Empire, to further study European politics. Achmet Resmî Efendi (Ahmed Efendi of Resmo) 1700-1783, was a Greek-Ottoman statesman, diplomat and author of the late 18th century. He was Turkey's first ever ambassador in Berlin (1763/1764). In terms of international relations, his most important and unfortunate task however was to act as the chief of the Ottoman delegation during the negotiations and the signature of the Treaty of Küçük Kaynarca. He wrote several important and fascinating works of social and political interest pertaining to the Ottoman Empire, the Russo-Turkish War of 1768-1774, being best remembered for the sefâretnâme accounts from his embassies to Vienna and Berlin. Ahmet Resmi was associated with a circle of reformers, who transformed diplomatic relations of the Ottomans with Europe in the 18th century, and who established some of the first privately funded public libraries of Istanbul. The present succinct translation, made from the original firsthand Turkish report "Viyana Sefaretnamesi", discloses excellent detail of an official diplomatic conference between Turkish Embassador Ahmet Resmi and Hasburg monarchs Francis I and Maria Theresa, in the Imperial Court at Vienna. It features descriptions of the exquisite palace and royal dress, the perils of travel during the during the Seven Years' War, as well as naming numerous ancient fortresses dispersed between the two nations..

        The Poetical Romances of Tristan; Tristan: Recueil de ce qui Reste des Poëms Relatifs a Ses Aventures

      Londres: Guillaume Pickering, 1835. First edition. Hardcover. Very good. 2 volumes. 12mo. Illustrated with lithographs of the manuscripts, some with initials colored by hand in red and blue. Title page in Volume 1 in both English and French.. Publisher's original cloth in a small sand grain design. This is clearly Winterbottom's Type 'M' (Tomlinson). Krupp (p.30) notes this as San1, but without a Winterbottom cross-reference. She ascribes an appearance date of 1850 for this early design; to find it on books published in 1835 is a treat. That it would appear on a Pickering work should be no surprise. Pickering started experimenting with bookcloth as early as 1823 through his binder, Archibald Leighton, who was responsible for many innovations in the design and use of early bookcloth. The text constitutes mainly the remains of Thomas of Britain's Tristan Romance, composed in the 12th and 13th centuries in Norman French and Greek, here edited and rendered in the originals by Fr. Michel. This is a very good set with only light signs of age and wear. Fairly scarce. A third volume with additional Tristan fragments was issued in 1839, not present her. There is an old note on the front free endpaper indicating that this is one of 250 copies, but we have not been able to confirm that limitation. This is the first printed edition of Thomas of Britain. It dates from about 1170, and includes Tristan's marriage and the Hall of Statues, his return to Cornwall, and the lovers' deaths, using the motif of the sails. Reiss, Reiss & Taylor, Nrs. 930 and 956. A translation into English was issued by Pickering the same year.

        Géométrie stéréographique, ou reliefs des polyèdres, pour faciliter l'étude des corps

      1835 - IV-44 pages et 25 planches, Paris, L'auteur, 1835, in-8, IV-44 pages et 25 planches, soit 24 sur carton avec figures pré-découpées et 1 pl. depl, broché, couverture imprimée de l'éditeur, couvertures renforcées et dos factice, titre à l'encre en tête du dos, Première adaptation française, rare, de deux textes anglais de Cowley, parus à Londres respectivement en 1758 et 1765-1766 sous les titres "An appendix to Euclid's elements [.] in wich the Doctrine of Solids, is Illustrated, and Rendered Easy", et "The theory of Perspective Demonstrated". La méthode de Cowley est unique dans l'histoire des livres de perspective car elle n'avait pour but de présenter des constructions de vues de perspective, mais de familiariser ses lecteurs (un public de formation militaire, puisqu'il était professeur de mathématiques à la "Royal Military Academy" de Wollwich) à la géométrie tri-dimensionnelle, autrement dit familiariser ses élèves à l'application de la théorie des plans à la perspective. Pour ce faire, il fit graver sur des cartons forts des formes géométriques pré-découpées pouvant se replier et ainsi former en relief les différents corps solides euclidiens réguliers ou irréguliers. Marie, à l'instar de Cowley, était mathématicien et cartographe. Son édition française compte 24 planches d'éléments mobiles servant à montrer les volumes des cinq polyèdres selon des calculs ou une technique représentation stéréographiques des corps. Cachet de l'Institut Catholique de Paris. Couverture renforcées et dos factice, petit manque en première de couverture ; néanmoins, exemplaire propre, complet de tous ses éléments mobiles.
