        The Aleppo Codex: provided with massoretic notes and pointed by Aaron ben Asher. The codex considered authoritative by Maimonides. Part One, Plates

      Jerusalem: At The Magnes Press, The Hebrew University, 1976. Limited First edition. Hardcover. vg. 1/500. Folio (17 1/4 x 13"). [8]pp (Booklet), [4]pp (Title page in English), 596pp (Plates), [4]pp (Title page in Hebrew). Contemporary 3/4 red calf over morocco, with gilt-lettered leather title label laid on spine. Raised bands. Original publisher's booklet (in English and Hebrew) tipped in. "The Aleppo Codex is the most important surviving manuscript of the Bible that includes vocalization (nikud), accents (te'amim), and the Masorah (the traditional annotation to the biblical text). As its name signifies, it is a bound volume of vellum leaves with writing on both sides. The importance of this manuscript, probably written in Tiberias more than a thousand years ago, lies first and foremost in the fact that it is the oldest existing manuscript Bible and also the most exact. It was written by the scribe Shlomo Ben Buya'a, while the vocalization and accents were added by the greatest of masoretes, Aharon Ben Asher. The Codex was apparently brought from Jerusalem to Cairo, where it was consulted by Maimonides when he compiled the halakhic rules governing the writing of a Bible, and he also referred to it when he was manually copying a Torah scroll. In the late fourteenth century the Codex was transferred from Jerusalem to Aleppo, which local Jewish tradition claims to be the Aram Soba mentioned in the Bible. For centuries it was kept in an iron strongbox opened by two keys, held by two trustees. The box was kept in the ancient synagogue, in the "Cave of Elijah" on a large stone pedestal, under a veil of sanctity and mystery. For instance, anyone obliged by the community's court to take an oath had to swear on the Codex. Aleppo's Jews believed that their community was blessed in consequence of the presence of the Codex, and that once it would be removed, disaster would befall their community. For this reason (with a very few exceptions), the rabbis of Aleppo prevented scholars from examining the Codex. Following the UN resolution of November 29, 1947 calling for the establishment of a Jewish state in part of Palestine, rioting broke out in Aleppo during which Arab rioters caused damage to the Jewish quarter, especially to its synagogues. The Codex suffered damage, and part of it disappeared. Of the original 487 leaves, only 294 remained. Members of the community concealed the surviving sections in various places for about ten years. In 1957 they were smuggled out of Aleppo to Turkey. Thanks to the efforts of Izhak Ben-Zvi, second President of the State of Israel, the Codex was brought to Jerusalem and deposited in the Ben-Zvi Institute on January 23, 1958. Since then it has been the subject of much research and great efforts have been made to bring it to public attention. Several critical editions of the Bible have been published on the basis of the Aleppo Codex. Today the Codex is in the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, where it can be viewed in the museum's Shrine of the Book. This complete facsimile edition of the surviving sections was published for the first time by the Magnes Press, in Jerusalem." (From the Publishers).One of 500 numbered copies of which this is No. 84.Minor shelf wear. Ex-library copy with bookplate on inside of front cover, stamp at front wrap of booklet and at both limitation pages. Booklet and titles in English and Hebrew, text in Hebrew.

        [人民畫報1976年11期及珍貴手稿].[Ren min hua bao 1976 nian 11 qi ji zhen gui shou gao]. [China Pictorial 1976 No.11 and Original Mock-up].

      北京. [Beijing].: 人民畫報社.[China Pictorial].. 1976.. Rare mock-up of China Pictorial, No. 11, 1976 issued to commemorate the death of Chairman Mao Zedong on September 9th. 33 folded sheets of light card, measuring 36 x 52cm open and 36 x 26cm closed, comprise a complete draft of the 61 pages of the final magazine with some interesting, and on occasion, telling differences. The reverse of the sheets are largely blank with handwritten page numbers on upper corner. Colour mock-up of upper cover on light card, plain backstrip torn with a little loss, lower cover not present. As this mock-up was compiled in the days prior to the use of computers it includes 149 black and white photographs, rather than photographic reproductions, of varying sizes showing Mao, many high ranking officials and, naturally, scenes of Mao with the Chinese people both en masse and in more intimate settings. These photographs have been very carefully placed amongst blocks of Chinese text. The text blocks have each been painstakingly hand cut by knife to make sure the sharp right angles required for printing were achieved and then laid down along pencilled guidelines. The mock-up of this special issue of China Pictorial is accompanied by a very good copy of the published magazine. A related item loosely inserted with this collection is a contemporary photograph of instructions passed between three people, two of whom are identifiable as high ranking Chinese officials of the day, regarding an issue of China Pictorial issued the following year (No.7 1977). This mock-up offers an extraordinary behind-the-scenes insight into the political manoeuvrings, subtle and not so subtle, that were taking place at the highest level of Chinese government in the period immediately following Chairman Mao's death. The least subtle change is that of the exclusion of Mao's wife in the final publication. One photograph (page 34 in the mock-up) shows Mao leading the way to the Northern Shaanxi battlefield in 1947. A handwritten comment alongside this photo reads "remove the image of Jiang Qing." Jiang Qing, Mao's wife and the leader of the Gang of Four does not appear in the revised photo in the final published edition and she is not seen in any of the other images in the magazine either. Many of the changes were more subtle, for example, several critical comments relating to Deng Xiaoping, present in the mock-up, were removed before publication, while the criticisms of Lin Biao are kept. An example perhaps of someone reading the political winds and sensing that Deng's fortunes were again beginning to change? It is also telling to look at the significance of the order in which the names of party members are mentioned. An interesting example of this can be found on page 8 of the mock-up. On this page Soong Ching-ling, or Madame Sun Yat-sen, is listed with a number of other senior officials' names. However her name has been circled with an indication that her name be moved from third place further down to the middle of the group of names. This change of order is reflected in the final publication but on page 10 she appears still in third place which surely must be human error! On pages 12 - 13 the editors have had prepared three different drafts for approval and have written "Plan No.1, Plan No.2 and Plan No.3" respectively on the rear side of the leaves in pencil. The text is not altered between the mock-up and the published magazine, however the photographs, with the exception of one differ. On the first plan individual photographs of the leaders are laid down side by side with the names captioned underneath each image. These 16 photographs look strikingly similar to "mug shots" taken by police of criminals and it is therefore not surprising that these photographs do not appear in the final publication. Another photograph shows Hua Guofeng delivering a eulogy for Mao. In one copy of this photograph Ye Jianying is behind him and in another the physical evidence of his removal is visible. Ye Jianying appears in the image in the final publication. Comparing the mock-up of 人民畫報1976年11期及珍貴手稿 [China Pictorial Number 11, 1976] and the final publication as a whole it is interesting to note that the propaganda slogans in the background of some photos in the mock-up are not as clear as they later appear in the published version. It is this, together with the not inconsiderable number of changes between the mock-up and the final published magazine, that draw attention to just how important it was to get this landmark issue "right", to reflect the prevailing winds and to make sure the party message was brought firmly home to the reader. .

        [人民畫報1976年11期及珍貴手稿].[Ren min hua bao 1976 nian 11 qi ji zhen gui shou gao]. [China Pictorial 1976 No.11 and Original Mock-up].

      北京. [Beijing]. 人民畫報社.[China Pictorial]. 1976. Rare mock-up of China Pictorial, No. 11, 1976 issued to commemorate the death of Chairman Mao Zedong on September 9th. 33 folded sheets of light card, measuring 36 x 52cm open and 36 x 26cm closed, comprise a complete draft of the 61 pages of the final magazine with some interesting, and on occasion, telling differences. The reverse of the sheets are largely blank with handwritten page numbers on upper corner. Colour mock-up of upper cover on light card, plain backstrip torn with a little loss, lower cover not present.As this mock-up was compiled in the days prior to the use of computers it includes 149 black and white photographs, rather than photographic reproductions, of varying sizes showing Mao, many high ranking officials and, naturally, scenes of Mao with the Chinese people both en masse and in more intimate settings. These photographs have been very carefully placed amongst blocks of Chinese text. The text blocks have each been painstakingly hand cut by knife to make sure the sharp right angles required for printing were achieved and then laid down along pencilled guidelines. The mock-up of this special issue of China Pictorial is accompanied by a very good copy of the published magazine.A related item loosely inserted with this collection is a contemporary photograph of instructions passed between three people, two of whom are identifiable as high ranking Chinese officials of the day, regarding an issue of China Pictorial issued the following year (No.7 1977). This mock-up offers an extraordinary behind-the-scenes insight into the political manoeuvrings, subtle and not so subtle, that were taking place at the highest level of Chinese government in the period immediately following Chairman Mao's death.The least subtle change is that of the exclusion of Mao's wife in the final publication. One photograph (page 34 in the mock-up) shows Mao leading the way to the Northern Shaanxi battlefield in 1947. A handwritten comment alongside this photo reads "remove the image of Jiang Qing." Jiang Qing, Mao's wife and the leader of the Gang of Four does not appear in the revised photo in the final published edition and she is not seen in any of the other images in the magazine either.Many of the changes were more subtle, for example, several critical comments relating to Deng Xiaoping, present in the mock-up, were removed before publication, while the criticisms of Lin Biao are kept. An example perhaps of someone reading the political winds and sensing that Deng's fortunes were again beginning to change?It is also telling to look at the significance of the order in which the names of party members are mentioned. An interesting example of this can be found on page 8 of the mock-up. On this page Soong Ching-ling, or Madame Sun Yat-sen, is listed with a number of other senior officials' names. However her name has been circled with an indication that her name be moved from third place further down to the middle of the group of names. This change of order is reflected in the final publication but on page 10 she appears still in third place which surely must be human error!On pages 12 - 13 the editors have had prepared three different drafts for approval and have written "Plan No.1, Plan No.2 and Plan No.3" respectively on the rear side of the leaves in pencil. The text is not altered between the mock-up and the published magazine, however the photographs, with the exception of one differ. On the first plan individual photographs of the leaders are laid down side by side with the names captioned underneath each image. These 16 photographs look strikingly similar to "mug shots" taken by police of criminals and it is therefore not surprising that these photographs do not appear in the final publication. Another photograph shows Hua Guofeng delivering a eulogy for Mao. In one copy of this photograph Ye Jianying is behind him and in another the physical evidence of his removal is visible. Ye Jianying appears in the image in the final publication.Comparing the mock-up of 人民畫報1976年11期及珍貴手稿 [China Pictorial Number 11, 1976] and the final publication as a whole it is interesting to note that the propaganda slogans in the background of some photos in the mock-up are not as clear as they later appear in the published version. It is this, together with the not inconsiderable number of changes between the mock-up and the final published magazine, that draw attention to just how important it was to get this landmark issue "right", to reflect the prevailing winds and to make sure the party message was brought firmly home to the reader.

        Pharmacopoea collegii medicorum Bergomi, rationem compenendi medicamenta usitatiora complectens. Altera editio .Bergamo, Comino Ventura, 1581. Folio. With woodcut device on title-page and colophon. Modern sheepskin parchment.

      - Durling 989; G. Sonnedecker, Kremers and Urdang's History of pharmacy (1976), p. 424. Second edition of the first official pharmacopoeia of the Venetian Republic, compiled by the College of Physicians of Bergamo. "The title 'pharmacopoea' was not used in Italy until 1580 at Bergamo" (Sonnedecker), when the first edition, the Pharmacopoeia Bergamensis, was published. In 1601 the pharmacopoeia was replaced by the official pharmacopoeia of Bologna, after various delays to a revised edition.Since the appearance of the first pharmacopoeia, by Valerius Cordus (1515-1544), the authorities of several cities followed his example, compiling books with remedies and cures to various diseases and ailments. Their main goal was to enhance uniformity between the cities’ physicians, their prescriptions and their medicines. However, many private books of medicinal recipes were in circulation as well.With a restoration to title-page, not affecting the text, and one leaf detached. Heavily browned, with some water stains, small spots and thumbing. A fair copy.
