UCHIDA Masao.
WorldCat (3 copies); www.city.adachi.tokyo.jp/001/pdf/d10100057_1.pdf, no. 297; http://quod.lib.umich.edu/t/tap/7977573.0001.114?trgt=div1_03;view=fulltext. The third volume in a geographic-topographic series by Uchida Masao, this volume covering the Near and Middle East, Indonesia and surrounding regions. The five maps cover the regions around Persia, West Turkistan, Turkey & the Caucasus (including the eastern Mediterranean, Black and Caspian Seas), the Arabian peninsula and Indonesia (with the Philippines and part of Southeast Asia). Six illustrations show plants or animals and many show buildings, cities, people in exotic clothing, landscapes, etc. The maps have north at the top with a grid of latitude and longitude (with the prime meridian through Tokyo) and the other illustrations follow also Western styles and conventions. Many were made from photographs made by European travelers. Uchida Masao (1838/39-1876) was born in Edo (now part of Tokyo). He studied in the Netherlands from 1862 to 1867 and returned with Western geography books, photograph albums and other sources then largely unknown in Japan. From 1870 to 1880 he published his Yochi shiryaku (13 parts, numbered as 12 volumes with vol. 11 in 2 parts). Many of its illustrations were based on the photographs he brought back. It quickly became a best seller and was reprinted many times, giving many Japanese their first view of foreign lands. The wrapper has minor worm damage near the spine and is worn near the edges. In very good condition.

Later London edition of Sale's Qur'an, the first English translation of the Qur'an to be made directly from the Arabic on first publication in 1734, and the basis for all subsequent English editions until the mid-nineteenth century; previously the only complete English translation had been Alexander Ross's 1649 version, which relied solely on the 1647 French edition by Alexandre du Ryer. George Sale (1697-1734), a solicitor, was "the first notable English Arabist who was not in holy orders From 1726 to 1734 he was closely associated with the Society for the Propagation of Christian Knowledge, which he served in his legal capacity. Meanwhile he was working on a translation of the Qur'an a landmark in the history of Qur'anic studies" (Holt, Studies in the History of the Near East, p. 58). Sale was textually indebted to the 1698 Latin translation of Ludovico Marracci, confessor to Pope Innocent XI, and his citation of Muslim commentators is restricted to those already mentioned by his predecessor. Yet Sale's work, and in particular his extensive Preliminary Discourse discussing both the biography of the Prophet and … [Click Below for Full Description]

1838 31838. 3 vol. in-8 manuscrits à environ 30 lignes par page d'une écriture lisible, fine et serrée de 776 pp. et 1 carte repliée (37 x 50 cm) pour le 1er volume ; 726 pp. pour le 2e volume ; 343 pp. et 1 tableau replié, tables, têtes de chapitre, suppléments "Circonstances oubliées" pour le 3e volume, cartonnage dominoté, étiquette manuscrite sur le dos (reliure de l'époque). Dos du tome III manquant. Récit manuscrit au long cours demeuré inédit de la vie militaire d'un conscrit arrivé de Saluzzo (Saluces) en 1804 pour intégrer le 31ème Régiment d'Infanterie Légère parfois appelé le Régiment piémontais de Napoléon qu'il quitta en 1815 mis en demi-solde et rentré "au pays" avec le grade de lieutenant. Son journal est année après année celui des campagnes de ce régiment. Jean Joseph Marie Bonifanti, né le 16 Juillet 1782 à Villanova en Sardaigne, rédigea ses souvenirs en français à la chute de l'Empire, suite à la lecture des premiers mémoires apparus sur les campagnes napoléoniennes. « Après dix années de service militaire, la lecture d'un ouvrage composé par M. Samson, parisien, capitaine au même régiment, contenant le détail de ses campagnes et batailles où il s'était trouvé, la description des villes à l'étranger, les moeurs de ses habitants et même la production des campagnes qu'il avait parcourues m'a inspiré le dessein de composer mon histoire ; ou plutôt un galimatias de mes voyages parce que mes faibles moyens ne me permettant pas le beau style, ni même la correction de l'orthographe que je n'appris que par routine à la lecture de moi-même depuis ma retraite f … [Click Below for Full Description]

FORNERET (Xavier)
Paris, E. Duverger. VIII, 372, (7)pp broché, exemplaire non coupé, emboîtage moderne noir 1838, 1838, in-8, VIII, 372, (7)pp, broché, exemplaire non coupé, emboîtage moderne noir, PREMIERE EDITION de ce recueil de poésies très rare. Ecrivain et rentier originaire de Beaune, Forneret (1809-1884) séjourna à Dijon de 1832 à 1837, puis il passa quelques années à Paris, avant de retourner en Bourgogne, après ses échecs littéraires. Son oeuvre a été revisitée par les Surréalistes, qui le considèrent comme un précurseur de l'écriture automatique. Il est cité par André Breton et Jacques Prévert. Il est l'auteur de "L'Homme noir" (surnom qui lui est resté), drame en 5 actes publié en 1835, et joué une seule fois au théâtre de Dijon, le 10 mars 1837. Les "Vapeurs" sont un recueil de poésies où "le macabre côtoie le larmoyant, l'excentrique cède la place au prêcheur, le révolté au conformiste" ("Xavier Forneret", E. Kaye, Paris-Genève, Droz, 1971, p.54). Forneret y aborde des thèmes spécifiques aux "petits romantiques", comme "la fascination et l'horreur physiques pour la mort, l'humour noir, la frénésie des sens, la prédilection constante pour des scènes de violence, la croyance en la toute-puissance de l'amour, etc." (ibid.). Ce recueil fait partie de la période la plus féconde de Forneret (1835-40) et de celle qui est la plus intéressante d'un point de vue littéraire. Couverture restaurée, qqs rousseurs

Most of the maps in this later edition are dated 1832, with the most recent dated 1838, but many dated in between. The maps of Australia and America are: "Map of the Discoveries in Australia, Copied from the latest M.S. Surveys in the Colonial Office", 1834, including the tracks of explorers from Oxley in 1817 to Sturt in 1830, with insets of Australia in Asia and the Colony of Western Australia "Discoveries in Western Australia from documents furnished to the Colonial Office by J.S. Roe...", 1833, with five inset maps: Guildford, Augusta, Kelmscott, Perth and Fremantle. Sir James Stirling remarks of the colony that "...in general it is neither rich nor inviting"...

Henry, Patrick
3/4 x 2 inch slip, mounted to ALS Henry's son John Henry, Charlotte Court House, VA, November 7, 1838, 4to; docketed and addressed on verso. Loss to blank corners of letter. 3/4 x 2 inch slip, mounted to ALS Henry's son John Henry, Charlotte Court House, VA, November 7, 1838, 4to; docketed and addressed on verso. A cut signature of the Virginia statesman Patrick Henry (1736-1799), whose "Give me liberty or give me death speech" in Richmond in 1775 remains an integral moment in the mythology of the American Revolution. Henry was Virginia's first (and sixth) post-colonial Governor, and served in the Virginia State Assembly as well. The autograph is mounted on a letter from his son John Henry to a Reverend Samuel Alexander, reading in part: "I enclose you my fathers signature, agreeable to promise, cut from an old paper relating to private business. All his papers & letters of a public nature are deposited with the Young Men's Debating Society of Lynchburg & I expect that I have not in the house some letter of an interesting nature containing his signature to send you. John Henry." The Patrick Henry Debating Society of Lynchburg marched in a memorial parade for General Lafayett on July 15, 1836. We are unable to trace any other mention of its stewardship of Henry's papers.

Bogen indeholder et eventyr for voksne, og det skiller sig også i både indhold og tone væsentligt ud fra de hidtil udgivne, en dramatisk situation, skrevet til Det kongelige Teater men afvist, og det fortællende digt "Det har Zombien gjort", som fortæller om underklassemennesker, der ved kunsten hæver sig op til frihed mellem andre.
