Descripción: New York, John James Audubon, 1845-1848., 1848. 3 vols. Large folio (70 x 55 cm). With 150 striking coloured plates, all lithographed on stone, printed and coloured by J. T. Bowen of Philadelphia, after drawings by John James and John Woodhouse Audubon, and the backgrounds after Victor Audubon. Each volume also with a title-page and a list of contents. Late 19th-century black morocco, with gold-tooled spine, red cloth sides and marbled endpapers. First edition of the extraordinary coloured plates of quadrupeds by the world-famous French-American naturalist and painter John James Audubon (1785-1851), whose "Birds of America" was purchased at a Christie's auction for $11.5 million in March 2000, setting a world record for the most expensive book ever sold (surpassed only by the 1640 "Psalm Bay Book", sold for $14.2 million in November 2013). The plates in the present work are considered the finest animal prints ever published in America. Unlike the "Birds", it was produced entirely in the United States, making it the "largest successful color plate book project of 19th-century America" (Reese). - After the publication of his highly acclaimed "Birds of America", Audubon settled on the Hudson River and began working on the present series to document the animal life of North America. The plates were first published in 30 parts of 5 plates each, and three separately published accompanying text volumes, written by John Bachman, appeared between 1846 and 1854. A second edition was published in 1856, but "the first edition is by far the best" (Sabin). - Title pages show some small scuff marks, a few plates with minor, unobtrusively repaired tears along the edges. Binding skillfully restored. A complete set, with most plates in fine condition. Nissen, ZBI 162. Buchanan, pp. 147-154. Reese 36. Sabin 2367. Cf. Howgego II, A19 (p. 15, 1846-54).

Descripción: Bulaq, Matba`at Bulaq, 1251 AH [1835 AD]., 1835. Royal 8vo. 707 pp. (instead of 710, the two missing leaves and two small missing corners supplied in facsimile from the Oxford copy). 620 pp. Printed in Arabic throughout, each page framed by double rules. With large woodcut vignettes on opening page. The first volume bound in somewhat later (c. 1890) red morocco with flap, boards decorated with arabesque ornaments and ruled by double fillets and wavy borders. The second volume bound in original brown morocco with flap and blindstamped central ornament (spine professionally renewed). The first complete edition of the Thousand and One Nights in the original Arabic; of the utmost rarity. Also the oldest printed version of "The Nights" in Arabic by a non-European, preceded only by the 1814-18 Calcutta edition, which was published by the British East India Company with an English title page and contained the first 200 "Nights" only. A complete Arabic edition of the "Nights" was begun by the EIC in 1839 and was finished in 1842, but with the exception of the first 200 "Nights" already published, more than three quarters of that text were "printed directly or indirectly from the printed Bulaq text" (Grotzfeld, 73). The importance of the Bulaq edition as the final received corpus of the "Arabian Nights" cannot be overestimated: this first complete edition to be printed in the original language provides the culminating point of an oral and manuscript textual tradition reaching back more than a thousand years; until today all modern editions and translations are based on this corpus. "The earliest proof of the very existence of the work titled 'Alf layla' is the [9th century] paper fragment published by Nabbia Abott. The last decisive act in the textual history of the work now commonly known as the 'Thousand and One Nights' took place with the printed editions Bulaq 1835 and Calcutta 1839-42, which, by their wide distribution, put an end to the development of the work's Arabic text. In between these two points, there is a period of a thousand years during which the work has changed continually" (Marzolph, 51). Thus, even up to the present day "the first Bulaq edition (1835) gives the most trustworthy text" (Encyclopaedia Britannica [1952 ed.], XXII, 152). - For the present edition, the earliest ever printed and until today the most authoritative of the complete Arabic text, OCLC locates no more than 8 copies worldwide. No copies recorded at international auctions during the last decades; the single other copy to have appeared on the market within the last fifty years - a complete set - was sold by us in 2014. - The appealing bindings are slightly rubbed. Slight browning to early leaves of vol. I; loss of first two leaves; third (and final) leaf remargined with slight corner loss (all supplied in photofacsimile from the Oxford copy). A 20th century scholar's notes on front endpapers. Binding of vol. II professionally repaired; occasional slight waterstains throughout; first and final quires professionally cleaned (pp. 13-14 and 15-16 bound in reverse order) with repairs to final leaves; the "Nights" numbered in red pencil by a late 19th century owner. A fine copy of the most desirable monument in the history of Arabic printing and literature. Chauvin IV, 18, 20K. Brunet III, 1715. Graesse IV, 523. Fawzi M.

Descripción: London, Richard Jugge, 1577., 1577. [10], 466, [6] ll. Narrow 4to (19 x 13.5 cm). With a woodcut celestial map of the South Polar sky in the text, dozens of decorated and mostly pictorial initials plus a few repeats (3 series?, but the main series sometimes has 3 different initials for the same letter of the alphabet). Set in textura types with extensive use of roman and italic. With 14 leaves in a 19th-century facsimile. Gold- and blind-tooled maroon morocco (ca. 1860?), sewn on 3 double cords, in allusive style, each board with a frame of arabesque ornament, with an oval centrepiece containing a 4-lobed, square endless knot. In a modern clam-shell box. First English edition of Ludovico di Varthema's famous account of travels to Arabia, Syria, Persia, Ethiopia, India and the East Indies: a highly important and adventurous narrative including his 1503 visit to Mecca and Medina, the first recorded visit of a European (probably of any non-Muslim) to the Islamic holy cities. "Varthema's Itinerario, first published in 1510, had an enormous impact at the time, and in some respects determined the course of European expansion towards the Orient" (Howgego). It is here combined with various other travel accounts, including some taken from a collection by d'Anghiera translated into English in 1555 as The decades of the newe worlde or West India. - Ludovico di Varthema or Barthema (ca. 1468-1517) sailed from Venice to Egypt in 1502 and travelled through Alexandria, Beirut, Tripoli and Aleppo, arriving in Damascus in April 1503. There he enrolled in the Mameluke garrison and proceeded overland to Khaybar, Medina and Mecca, thereby becoming the first European to enter the two holiest cities of Islam. His travels took him further to South Arabia, Persia, India, Goa, Cochin, and supposedly the Malay isthmus, Sumatra, Banda, the Moluccas, the Spice Islands, Borneo, Java and Malacca. It has often been suggested, however, that he never came further east than Ceylon and that the account of the rest of his journey was assembled from stories passed on by others, but even in these regions much of his information appears to be accurate. Thanks to his knowledge of Arabic and of Islam, Varthema was able to appreciate the local culture of the places he visited. Impressed and fascinated, he describes not only rites and rituals, but also social and geographical aspects and details of daily life. He gives a detailed description of Mecca and the Islamic pilgrimage, and his description of the Hejaz (the west coast of Arabia on the Red Sea, including Mecca and Medina) is especially valuable as it pre-dates the Ottoman occupation of 1520. He finally returned to Lisbon in 1508. - Varthema's account became a bestseller as soon as it appeared in 1510 and went through about twenty editions in various languages in the next fifty years. It certainly provided many Europeans with their first glimpse of Islamic culture and of non-European cultures in general. - With a contemporary manuscript table of contents on the nearly blank leaf preceding the opening of the main text and an occasional marginal manuscript note in the same hand, a mid-19th-century note of prices of various copies (taken from Brunet) on a blank endleaf and the armorial bookplate of Sir Arthur Help (1813-1875), probably the owner who had it bound, on the paste-down. With the first 6 and last 8 leaves in a 19th-century facsimile, but otherwise in good condition, with the head or foot of 4 leaves extended and a few other marginal defects not affecting the text. Binding fine. First English edition of a seminal work on the Middle East. Cordier, Indosinica, col. 105; Cox I, p. 2; ESTC S122069; Howgego, to 1800, V15; STC 649; USTC 508279 (citing ESTC); cf.

Descripción: London, L. Harrison for S. and J. Fuller, 1829., 1829. Large folio (60 x 42 cm). Letterpress title with engraved vignette, list of subscribers, winners of the St. Leger 1776-1814, 14 hand-coloured aquatint plates by T. Sutherland and R. G. Reeve after Herring, each with letterpress description of riders and winners of other races and the St Leger stakes for each year. Bound in recent half burgundy morocco with contemporary drab boards with large printed label on upper cover. "Extremely rare" (Tooley). Second edition of Herring's finest work, the outcome of his fascination with horse racing and the St. Leger in particular. "In the writer's estimation, the first series of the St. Leger winners contains the very best of Herring prints [.] they were engraved by Sutherland, a more competent aquatinter and colourist than his successors who handled these race-horses" (Siltzer). Herring spent the first 18 years of his life in London, where his father, an American, was a fringe-maker in Newgate Street. Having married against his father's wishes, he went to Doncaster, where he arrived during the races in September 1814, and saw the Duke of Hamilton's horse, William, win the St. Leger. The sight inspired him to attempt the art of animal-painting, in which he subsequently excelled. He painted Filho da Puta, the winner of the St. Leger in 1815, and for the following thirty-two years painted each winner in succession. "Herring's series of Portraits [.] were painted annually and quickly reproduced in large showy aquatints, the horses made literally glossy by the application of varnish to the paper" (Diana Donald, Picturing Animals in Britain 1750-1850, New Haven, CT [2007], p. 215). This is the second edition of this series of wonderful racehorse portraits. It was first published as a suite of 10 plates in 1824 by Sheardown and Son of Doncaster; S. and J. Fuller of London purchased these in 1827 and continued to publish, periodically, the St. Leger winner series up to 1845. The earlier plates were all re-captioned with Fuller's imprint. Plates watermarked 1825-28; the first plate in the present work, "Filho da Puta", is on paper watermarked 1827. - Very slight offsetting to text. Extremities rubbed; otherwise a superb example of this rare work. Siltzer 139-146. Mellon Horsemanship, 128. Nº de ref. de la librería 32114

Descripción: Vienna, 1907-1914., 1914. 4to. 2 vols. (1), 314, (1) pp.; 2 ff. of equations inserted loosely. 260 [but 248: page count jumps from 229 to 240; 1 revised leaf removed by author after numbering the pages], (3) pp. Black ink on squared paper, occasional additions and notes in pencil and red or blue crayon. Includes numerous diagrams (some nearly full-page). Contemp. half calf with giltstamped spine title "Vorlesungen Mechanik I. [bzw. II.] F.H.". All edges red. Hasenöhrl's Mechanics lecture manuscripts, used and revised throughout the great physicist's last seven years of work, mainly composed in 1907/08 and bound for the author around that time. His name is on the flyleaf in his own hand: "Prof. Dr. F. Hasenöhrl / Wien, Universität". The volumes comprise the complete first two lectures (Mechanics and Continuum Mechanics) of Hasenöhrl's four-year cycle, which also included Electrodynamics, Theory of Heat, and Optics. - Volume 1 contains "Vorlesung über Mechanik der starren Systeme. Gehalten fünfstündig im Wintersemester 1907/8 (vom Beginn 24. X, bis 14. II.)" (a piece of information that contradicts Bittner's statement [p. 335] that Hasenöhrl did not teach that winter semester). The first session was Hasenöhrl's inaugural lecture at Vienna University. He inherited Boltzmann's chair, who had taken his life in Duino in the fall of 1906. In the appointment process for the successor to Boltzmann, Hasenöhrl had prevailed against his older colleagues Max Planck and Wilhelm Wien. Appropriately, this inaugural lecture, the only one largely written in shorthand, is an obituary of his predecessor (not identical with his Boltzmann obituary published in "Elektrotechnik und Maschinenbau" 41 [1906]). The remaining 28 chapters include "Kinematik des Punktes", Lagrange's equations, "Hamiltons partielle Differentialgleichung", and the theories of relative and cyclical movement. Red crayon markings indicate the progress made from session to session; individual problems are marked as having been treated in the seminary course rather than in the lecture hall. At the end (p. 305 ff.), Hasenöhrl has included the changes made for the 1910/11 winter semester (according to Bittner, Hasenöhrl again repeated the lecture in 1913/14). - Volume II contains the two-semester "Vorlesung über Mechanik der deformablen Körper" (winter semester of 1907/08: Elasticity; summer semester of 1908: Hydromechanics, of which latter course two weeks were lost due to the great student strike). Hasenöhrl prefixed a motto from Guido Ubaldi's "Paraphrasis in duos Archimedis aequeponderantium libros" (1588): "Quapropter ad Archimedem confugiendum est, si vera huius scientiae principia perdiscere cupimus." This volume likewise contains final changes made in 1911, constituting a thorough revision of pp. 90-101. In the summer of 1914 he revised the "slipshod pages 183 ff." about ray formation, which are partly struck out (p. 183f.), partly removed altogether (p. 185f.; the leaf is missing save for a narrow guard); these notes are followed by the sections "Allgemeines über Bewegung mit Rotationssym[m]etrie" and "Kreisförmige Wirbel" (13 pp. in total). Shortly before the end of the semester, the First World War erupted. Hasenöhrl, whose mother was descended from the old military nobility, volunteered for the infantry and was decorated after an injury in July 1915. In a battle near Folgaria he was killed by a shell splinter to his head on 7 October. - Although Hasenöhrl always spoke freely during his lectures (cf. Bittner, 198), rather than reading out a written text, as many of his colleagues did, it is clear that his presentation was based on minutely prepared notes. So closely did he compress the subject matter of his lectures that each session usually comprises a mere four to six pages in the manuscript; and still, we find in the text many tidily formulated paragraphs, including digressions on themes such as Sven Hedin's observations on the rivers of Tibet, which, when flowing south-north, are deflected eas.

Descripción: Middle East, 1769-1770., 1770. Folio (235 x 170 mm). Italian manuscript in two parts with 29 original pen and ink drawings (15 and 14), written in black ink in a neat, legible hand, 28 lines to a page. (1), 95, (1) pp. (including illustrations numbered in pencil, upper right, but recto only). Collation, including illustrations: [1 f., 1 p.], [21 ff., 35 pp.], [6 pp.], [17 ff., 26 pp.], [5 pp.] (several sheets cut so that a tab only remains of the second page, and all illustrations tipped in). Contemp. half vellum over marbled paper boards. Generally written on both recto and verso, except for the two title-pages and the illustrations (recto only); all but first and last page enclosed with a single line border, in pencil for text pages and in ink for illustrations. Unpublished manuscript giving a vivid and eventful first-person account of a journey from Urbino to Constantinople, legible and beautifully presented with 29 equally unique pen-and-ink illustrations. - A unique account of a journey from Urbino to Constantinople and back, in 1769-70, hand-written and accompanied by 29 original drawings, which offer views of islands rarely if ever depicted in contemporary travel accounts or series. No counterpart has been found for the illustrations, which appear therefore to have been made from eye-witness records. That the artist may have been the author himself is suggested by the fact that he makes no mention of a separate artist, and by the manner in which he introduces the first illustration: 'Il Paise è piccolo come vedrassi della figura, che di curiosita, ed intelligenza di lettori porro a piedi di questo capitolo' (p. 5v). The story of his adventure is equally idiosyncratic, incorporating both a record of foreign places, people and customs common to other such literature, and also an account of a personal tragedy and a dangerous sea-voyage. The manuscript falls within a tradition of cultural exchange and travel writing between Europeans and the Orient; but unlike Luigi Mayer, for example, employed to make drawings of the historical buildings of Constantinople by the English ambassador Sir Robert Ainslie shortly afterwards, or J. B. Hilair, whose paintings made on a trip throughout the Empire with the French ambassador Count Choiseul-Gouffier in 1776, and engraved and published in Gouffier's "Voyage pittoresque de la Grèce" (1778-82), Gianni appears to be an entirely independent figure. Though the manuscript is set out like a printed book and was presumably destined for wider distribution in that form as a money-making enterprise, Gianni does not seem to have been commissioned, nor to have hoped for patronage. His stated aim is simply to give a true account to his readers, in case they might wish to undertake a similar journey. His route takes him through great cities such as Venice, Athens, Smyrna and Gallipoli, ancient sites such as Troy and Heraklia, through the Peloponnesus and islands such as Mykonos, Corfu, Maitos and Skios, all of which he describes and depicts in detail. Meanwhile, although he says that he is not writing in order to leave "una viva ricordanza di me, come di soggetto qualificato", that is precisely what he does: the second part of the book recounts his search for his son from whom he had heard nothing but that he had married a Greek girl. Reunited with him through a doctor who has been helping the boy through an illness, he tries to persuade the young couple to return with him to Urbino, but this plan is thwarted by the machinations of the doctor. His journey home, alone, is enlivened by an encounter with corsairs, a near shipwreck, a boy falling overboard and a violent storm. The value of this book lies not only in the unique, unpublished text and illustrations, and legible and attractive presentation, but also in the combination of commonly-found themes such as dress and customs, with an entirely personal and richly-told narrative of one man's search for his son. - One illustration (Smirne) has been trimmed along the right edge afte.

Descripción: Amsterdam, c. 1750., 1750. Uncoloured. 530 x 305 mm. 20 large engraved sea charts, pasted back to back, nineteenth-century half calf. A rare maritime atlas for V.O.C. ships bound for the Far East, published by Johannes van Keulen II, the Dutch East India Company's official map maker and hydrographer during the years 1726-55. This atlas is a fine and rare example to be used on board, including 20 large engraved sea charts, pasted back to back, as typical for on-board use, making them more durable. This atlas also includes the most important celestial chart of the period, the "Stellatum Planisphaerium" of Louis Vlasbloem. The small spheres show the geocentric and heliocentric configurations of the solar system. The expansion of Dutch maritime trade in the Far East provided new astronomical knowledge of the southern hemisphere: twelve new constellations were added to the Ptolemaic canon, making a total of 60. The newly discovered southern constellations include: Pavo, Phoenix, Indus, and others, and Coma Berenices in the north. Celestial navigation was practiced by Chinese and western sailors, and a celestial chart was of the highest importance for navigation. The volume also includes an important and scarce world map, here in its second state with additional privilege. It is on Mercator's projection with only a relatively small number of coastal place names and no interior features or localities at all. After 1682 other general maps were used by Van Keulen, possibly because of the unfamiliarity of Mercator's projection. Shows California as an island and no further coastlines to the north. Includes: 1. Stellatum Planisphaerium 2. Wassende Graade Kaart van Alle Bekende Zeekusten op den Geheelen Aardbodem 3. Pascaerte van't Noordlyckste Deel van Europa 4.

Descripción: Moscow, 14. IX. 1933., 1933. 4to. 3½ pp. on 2 ff. With autogr. envelope. In Russian, to his third wife, Natalja, on a day he and Ivan Vassilyevitch Kljun spent together attending an exhibition of the Red Workers' and Peasants' Army and visiting officials. Kljun urged him to have his hair cut, as Malevich resembled a "savage". They failed to meet Lobanov, who wanted a landscape. "[.] You cannot imagine my sentiments. What else should I do, and how wait? I am completely starved, and although I have eaten quite well these two days at Ivan Vassilyevitch's, there is no way I might be satiated, and after all, I cannot live at his place, and there is nowhere for me to go. I still have no money to go to Nemchinovka and stay there overnight [.] It's simply a nightmare when the thought turns up that something might happen to me, a severe mental illness might afflict me. Tomorrow I will try to see mother, maybe I can raise some money there [.]". Also, Malevich mentions his difficult relationship with his brother, and that he avoids seeing him: "That's what it amounts to, when a man has not a penny, they all start to lecture you and call you a fool [.] Yes, this is hard indeed for me; when people find out that you have to money, they change their ways entirely.

Descripción: Moscow, 14. V. 1929., 1929. 4to. 2 pp. In Russian, to his third wife, Natalja, about an experience during his travel to Moscow, his daily work, a proposed business trip abroad, his daughter Una, etc.: "[.] Today, on the 14th, I started working at the Tretjakowa. I was promised to sell a drawing soon [.] I called upon the Main Administration for Literary and Arts Affairs, but, as usual, they promised to make arrangements for a separate meeting and to talk to Shutko. Chwojnik sent me a note regarding my business trip abroad.

Descripción: San Francisco de Paula (Cuba) and Madrid, 1953-1955., 1955. Large 4to. Altogether 4¼ pp. on 5 pp. With one autogr. envelope. To George Brown, the owner of a gymnasium in Manhattan, Hemingway's personal trainer, boxing coach, and friend. - I: Hemingway's affection for his sporting pal is evident in this revealing and highly personal letter, written shortly before Ernest and Mary left for an African safari: "How are you kid? Mary sends her best. We are fine and in very good shape and think of you often. Were out on a trip together on the boat for two weeks and we go to bed every night after it gets dark and have plenty of time to talk and to sleep good [.]". Hemingway then gives news of his sons and mentions his youngest son ("Gig"), who, in his early twenties, was turning violently hostile to his father: "I am sorry I spoke against Gig since he is a friend of yours and used to be of mine as well as my favorite son. But he changed very strange very fast. As bad as though the devil was managing him. I couldn't ever see him again; not even to go and see him hanged. But if he seems good to you, O.K. I haven't heard from him since last November when he came of age [.]" (Finca Vigia, San Francisco de Paula, Cuba, 12 May 1953). - II: Written on the eve of the latter's visit to Cuba and while preparations are being made for the filming of "The Old Man And The Sea": "George you can't have any confidence in any of those characters. They are all tighter than a hogs ass in fly time. That Goldwyn kid was nice as could be when it was a question of seeing us and thus becoming an old pal of old Ernie [ ]" (ibid., 18 August 1955). - III: Written from his sickbed. Preparations were still being made for the film, and Hemingway had spent September trying to get actions shots of leaping marlins for the producer Leland Hayward. Apparently, too, Hemingway was making an effort to get Brown involved in getting Spencer Tracy in shape, for he writes: "I am very sorry about [Peter] Viertel [who wrote the screenplay] behaving so carelessly. He is a very selfish boy but I think he has a little bit of an excuse in that he was with Zinneman on the script and was expecting you out there. While Zinneman was down here we discussed the whole thing about your getting Spencer in shape and agreed it was absolutely necessary and we spoke about it again on the long distance phone [ ]" (ibid., 25 November 1955; with several autograph lines in pencil). - IV: In early 1954 Ernest and Mary Hemingway suffered two near-fatal plane crashes in Uganda, and Hemingway's injuries were extensive (according to Carlos Baker, "The crash at Butiaba and the fire at Shimoni had [.] left him no more than a shadow of his former vigor"). "Just got your letter of Jan 14 George forwarded back from Nairobi. Sure glad you liked the first hooks piece with the pictures. We'd only been out 4-5 weeks then and I wasn't really in shape. In 5 months of that stuff got down to under 190 before those crashes. Now no exercise since Jan 23-24th except early necessary damaging exercise (pitching rocks left-handed with a busted back type of exercise). Good thing I was in shape though. All doctors look at you like some kind of freak like Joe Grimm because you are alive. Am tired of being so smashed up. But always remember you and your head. We beat this one I guess but the smashed vertebrae etc is a no good rap [ ]" ([Madrid], 24 May 1954). - I to III: On personal stationery of Finca Vigia; IV: on sheet of hotel stationery ("Palace Hotel, Madrid"). - Partly light-soiled, otherwise in fine condition.

Descripción: Wien, 1897-1935., 1935. In späteren Jahren vom Künstler selbst auf Untersatzkartons einheitlichen Formats montiert und in zwei einfache Mappen eingelegt, die er jeweils mit den Namen der Dargestellten eigenhändig beschriftete. Die Blätter selbst von der Hand des Künstlers durchlaufend numeriert (1-24, die auf ein Kartonblatt montierten Schreiben Schnitzlers als Nr. 23) und mit der Bezeichnung der Portraitierten unter Hinzufügung ihrer Lebens- bzw. Sterbedaten versehen. Imp.-Folio. Das früheste Blatt datiert aus dem Jahr 1897, dem Gründungsjahr der Wiener Secession und der Kunstzeitschrift "Ver Sacrum". Für letztere hatte Geyling laut seiner eigenh. Beschriftung das vorliegende Portrait des secessionistischen Bildhauers Rudolf Bacher geschaffen. Ein Großteil der von ihm in den beiden Mappen versammelten Bilder entstand dann 1905, im Jahr nach der Schließung des von ihm gemeinsam mit Otto Prutscher betriebenen Ateliers für Einrichtungs- und Ausstattungsbedarf und zur Blütezeit der Wiener Werkstätte, für die Geyling u. a. Postkarten entwarf. "Obwohl Mitglied des konservativen Künstlerhauses, stand er trotzdem der Wiener Secession nahe" (AKL LII, 462). Für Geyling waren "Klimt, Hoffmann, Roller, Olbrich nicht nur meine Kollegen, sondern auch meine Freunde und wir haben viele, viele Nächte über die 'neue und reine Kunst' debattiert" (Remigius Geyling erzählt, aufgezeichnet von Gerald Szyszkowitz. In: Nebehay/Krug, SS. 5-8, hier 7). Diese Nächte boten offenbar zahlreiche Gelegenheiten für Geylings Portraitstudien: die vorliegende Sammlung enthält neben den Portraits der obengenannten auch ein Bild des oftmaligen Tivoli-Gastes Egon Schiele aus dessen Todesjahr sowie eine im Cafe Museum entstandene Portraitzeichnung von Adolf Loos. Am selben Ort wird Geyling wohl auch der von ihm so bezeichnete "Fackl-Kraus" Portrait gesessen haben. Ein besonders enges Verhältnis pflegte Geyling zu Gustav Klimt: er "gehörte viele Jahre lang zum Kreis derjenigen, die mit Klimt am Tivoli frühstückten" (Nebehay/Krug, S. 3). In dem legendären Restaurationsbetrieb am Grünen Berg in Meidling entstand im Mai 1905 dann auch das Blatt mit den beiden Portraits Klimts. Gemeinsam mit Peter Altenberg und Otto Wagner gehört Klimt zu den wenigen, die in den vorliegenden Mappen mit mehr als einer Portraitstudie (jeweils auf einem Blatt) vertreten sind. Es war die Empfehlung seines Freundes Klimt, die Geyling 1910 zur Anstellung als Ausstattungschef der "Neuen Wiener Bühnen" verhalf; die erste von ihm ausgestattete Inszenierung am Burgtheater war die Premiere von Schnitzlers "Das weite Land". Bei den Proben zu ebendieser Inszenierung, am 14. X. 1911, entstand auch die in vorliegender Sammlung überlieferte Portraitzeichnung des Dichters. Die zwei beiliegenden Schreiben Schnitzlers an Geyling betreffen u. a. das gemeinsame Projekt des "Medardusfilm", hatte sich Geyling doch um die Austattung der bedeutendsten österreichischen Filmproduktionen verdient gemacht. Seine Übertragung der "Stilmittel der Wiener Werkstätte in das historische Trauerspiel [war] so wirkungsvoll, daß 1924 Fritz Lang Geylings Entwürfe für den Stummfilm 'Nibelungen' verwendete" (AKL LII, 462). - Provenienz: Wiener Privatsammlung, in die der Künstler die beiden Mappen noch zu Lebzeiten verkaufte. Die Nrn. 6-8 sowie 18, 21 und 22 der unten verlisteten Zeichnungen jeweils ganzseitig abgebildet in: Ch. M. Nebehay u. H. Krug (Hrsg.). Remigius Geyling. Künstler und Literaten. Gezeichnet in Wien um 1900. Wien 1974. (= Jahresgabe der Wiener Bibliophilengesellschaft). Die vorliegende Sammlung dort nicht beschrieben; alle übrigen Zeichnungen unveröffentlicht.

Descripción: Recanati, 14. XI. 1817., 1817. 4to (c. 240 x 190 mm). 1 p. Address panel on verso, traces of seal, annotated by the recipient. To the publisher Antonio Stella in Milan, enquiring whether his essay on "il Diogini del Mai" (i.e., Mai's discovery of Dionysius of Halicarnassus) might be included in the next issue of the "Spettatore Italiano", urging Stella that, if so, it should be published quickly, because of the novelty of the subject matter, but that he should take particular care over the small amount of Greek text in the essay, since it comprises a number of detailed emendations which would be rendered quite unintelligible by any errors of type-setting. Leopardi promises to send him any further dissertations he writes on the many discoveries of Angelo Mai, and asks if copies might be sent to his father and to the critic known as Mezio. - Overall browning and spotting, one small hole slightly affecting the text, seal tear at corner.

Descripción: New City, 30. V. 1942., 1942. Folio (314:241 mm). 6 pp. The entire manuscript, lyrics, and music are beautifully penned in jet black ink on Chappell No. 2 and Rayner, Dalheim & Co. lined music paper. A complete musical manuscript by Kurt Weill of his "Song of the Free". The musical portion of the manuscript is six pages in length. On page one of the manuscript, Weill has written: "Song of the Free by Archibald MacLeish, Music by Kurt Weill". On the cover (music lined paper), Weill has written: "The manuscript of The Song of the Free (The United Nations Anthem) for Gertrude Lawrence as a token of my undying affection. Kurt Weill. New City May 30, 1942". German composer Kurt Weill immigrated to the United States in 1936, and his interest in American music and literature became a vital part of his music. Weill set the poetry of many American poets and writers to music, including Walt Whitman, Robert Frost, Archibald MacLeish and Maxwell Anderson. According to the Kurt Weill Foundation for Music, "Song of the Free" was composed for the war effort between February and April, 1942. Titled by Weill "Song of the Free (The United Nations Anthem)", the song may have been used as part of a radio broadcast celebrating "United Nations Day", which was June 14, 1942. At that time, the "United Nations" referred to U.S. Allies in World War II (the United Nations, as we know it today, had not yet formed). An important musical manuscript, with an important association between Weill and the three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning Modernist poet, Archibald MacLeish. Musical manuscript material in Weill's hand is extremely rare. - Light soiling. Nº de ref. de la librería 30953

Descripción: [Wittenberg], Easter [14 April 1555]., 1555. Folio (194 x 320 mm). In Latin. 2 pp. Matted and framed. To the Protestant theologian Sebastian Boetius in Halle, writing to recommend the young priest Christian Hertwig junior. Boetius (1515-73), who had studied under Luther and Melanchthon at Wittenberg, succeeded Justus Jonas as superintendent of Halle and founded the famous Library of St Mary, still in existence. - In his letter, Melanchthon reminds his former student that their minds often run in the same channel, as their letters show, and describes the role of the ideal pastor. He recommends Hertwig for such a position, both on the strength of his doctrines as on that of his moral fibre: "S[alutem] d[ico] reverendo vir & cariss[imo] frater. Memini antea in quada[m] ad te epistola hac uti similitudine, de qua sepe cogito. Ut in navi remiges, amisso gubernatore, cuius cernere signa & cora[m] audire ma[n]data potera[n]t, necesse est sua sponte maiore cura concordia[m] tutti et co[n]silia co[n]ferre. Sic nos oportet co[n]iu[n]ctiores esse, cu[m] principes cura ecclesiar[um] paru[m] adficiantur, ac insu[m]eamur summu[m] gubernatore[m] filii dei qui non deerit nobis invocantib[us] ipsu[m]. Spes facta est huic Christiano Hertwik nato ex pastore ecclesia vicina oppido Hertzberg, prafectu[m] vestru[m] ei commendatu[rum] esse ecclesia[m] qua[n]da[m]. Quare te oro ut p[er]fecto eu[m] co[m]me[n]des, sed ita ut tu quoq[ue] consideres doctrina[m] & mores huius iuvenis. Vides quale sit seculu[m] in hac circumstantia [?]. Ideo qua[n]tu[m] potes vicinis ecclesiis consulito. De sale tibi gratia[m] habeo, et si nollem te sumptus fecisse mea causa. Sed benevolentia tua delector. Mitto pagellas, quia alia nu[n]c no[n] erant ad manu[m] [.]". - Christian Hertwig (b. in Buckau c. 1530, d. before Oct. 1574) was probably the elder of two sons of the like-named former Augustinian monk C. Hertwig (c. 1495-1562), who left his order in 1526 and was recommended to the Elector by Justus Jonas and Luther in 1531. Christian the younger studied at Wittenberg for a year before teaching the gospel in Brandenburg. Twice Melanchthon interceded on his behalf: on 25 March 1555, shortly before the present letter to Boetius, he provided Hertwig with a personal letter of recommendation, quoting Georg Buchholzer's praise for the young man and appealing to anyone in a position to help to provide him with an office (CR VIII, 449f.). - Slightly browned; traces of folds. Altogether in fine condition. Unpublished. Melanchthons Briefwechsel (ed. H. Scheible), vol. VII, p. 295, no. 7449. Koehler, Epistolae quaedam Phil. Melanthonis (1802), 37 note x.

Descripción: Augsburg, Christoph Mang, 1615., 1615. Small 4to. (14), 646 [but: 648], (10) pp. With engraved title page by Wolfgang Kilian and an engraved folding plan. 19th-century tanned half sheepskin, gold-tooled spine, marbled sides. First edition of "the most influential description of China to appear during the first half of the 17th century" (Hanotiau). Ricci (1552-1610), an Italian Jesuit missionary, arrived in China in 1582. Adopting Chinese dress and learning the language, he succeeded where other missionaries had failed. He served in Nanchang, Nanking, and received permission to establish a missionary post in Beijing in 1610. During these years, he kept a journal which presented the history of Jesuit mission in China from its beginning in 1582 to 1610, the year of his death. This manuscript was translated from the Italian into Latin by Ricci's successor Trigault (1577-1628), who tried to elicit support for the mission in China. Trigault, however, changed many passages of Ricci's journal and augmented it with information based on several Portuguese reports. "The resulting volume contains not only a history of the Jesuit mission but also includes a wealth of information about China in the chapters describing Chinese geography, people, laws, government, religion, learning, commerce and the like" (Hanotiau). - The title-page, engraved by Wolfgang Kilian, gives the title on a cloth hanging in a portico, flanked by the figures of St Francis Xavier and Matteo Ricci, and with a small map of China, Korea, Japan and Formosa, with the Great Wall depicted, at the foot. - With library and de-accession stamps. Engraved title-page trimmed down and mounted on browned leaf; some thumbing on the few first and last pages and some minor foxing thoughout, not affecting the text, otherwise in very good condition. Binding rubbed along the extremities of the spine and front hinge partly cracked, otherwise good. The Perrette copy sold at Christie's New York in April 2016 commanded US$68,750 (lot 183).

Munch adds that he regrets having been unable to paint Mengelberg's feverish dreams while in Stockholm. - Letter 2 (10 June 1897): Munch writes he wanted to send birthday greetings, but when he left Hamburg he was without money, unable even to afford a postcard. He has sent a lithograph, mentions that Hamsun and Ibsen just passed by his window, and adds he wishes to travel to Paris in the spring. - Letter 3 (10 Jan. 1897): mentions the artist Paul Durand-Ruel, stating that all he exhibits is not symbolic. He also plans to publish an album of lithographs, provided he managed to find more subscribers. - Letter 4 (17 March 1897): some chat on the spring; mentions an exhibition in Dresden. - Postcards: complaints that Mengelberg is a poor correspondent. - Richard Mengelberg (1853-1932) wrote, in 1894, an article on Munch's works for the Frankfurter Zeitung. He was father of Nora Mengelberg, whose portrait Munch painted in 1894. He also made an etching of Richard Mengelberg the same year, his first work as an graphic artist.

Descripción: Venice, Bernardinus Benalius, 1497 (but not before 13 Feb. 1498)., 1498. Folio. 268 ff. Contemporary vellum with ms. title to spine. "This appears to be the first edition of Barbarus' recension, the note of a 1496 edition by the same printer being probably due to a confusion (Hain 13099)" (BMC). Early edition of Pliny's famous encylopedic work, covering the entire field of ancient knowledge. With his "Natural History", Pliny gives a mathematical and physical description of the world, discusses geography, ethnography, anthropology, human physiology, zoology, botany, mineralogy, sculpture and painting. As "a purveyor of information both scientific and nonscientific, Pliny holds a place of exceptional importance in the tradition and diffusion of culture" (DSB). Dated 1497 in the colophon, but the dedication is dated the Ides of February in the twelfth year of the Doge Augustinus Barbadicus (30 Aug. 1497 - 29 Aug. 1498). - Numerous contemporary marginalia. Slight worming to gutter and some waterstaining near end; spine severely defective. Late 19th-c. bookplate of Dr. J. Klauber on front pastedown. HC 13101*. Goff P-799. GW M34321. Klebs 786.14.

Descripción: [Büyükada und Mexiko City, 1930, 1938 und 1939]., 1939. Zusammen 4 SS. auf 4 Bll. Verschiedene Formate. Inhaltsreiche Korrespondenz mit seinem Pariser Anwalt Gérard Rosenthal. In den zwei ersten (eigenhändigen) Briefen - geschrieben aus dem türkischen Exil - berichtet Trotzki seinem Anwalt von seinen Bemühungen nach Frankreich zu übersiedeln. I: [Büyükada], 14. III. [1930]. "Mein lieber Gerard (alias sinistrer Gefährte). Ich sende Ihnen den zweiten Brief, und ich hoffe, es werden nicht mehr. Ich werde mich morgen beim französischen Konsulat erkundigen [.]" (Übers. a. d. Frz.). II: [Ebd.], 16. III. 1930. "Lieber Gerard (oder andernfalls sinistrer Advokat), ich habe an Marg[uerite Rosmer] über meinen Besuch am französischen Konsulat geschrieben. Wenn es Sie interessieren sollte, wird Ihnen Marg. Auskunft geben (da es für mich zu umständlich ist zweimal zu schreiben). Ich denke, Sie werden sich an Marg. wenden müssen, sie wird nützlicher sein als ich. (Es ist vor allem die Frage nach finanziellen Bürgen.) [.]" (Übers.). -- Der ms. Brief vom 8. Dezember 1938 wurde im mexikanischen Exil in Mexico City verfaßt, wo Trotzki dabei war, die Aktivitäten der Vierten Internationale als Opposition zu Stalin zu koordinieren. Bei dem namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten wird es sich wohl ebenfalls um Rosenthal handeln: "[.] Ich habe Ihnen am 13. November über [Bernard] Grasset (No. 16-82/06) geschrieben. Der alte Mann ist sehr beunruhigt [.] Er verdächtigt V[ictor] S[erge] einer kleinen Intrige (zwischen uns!). Grasset wird ihm wohl die besagten Kapitel zu lesen gegeben haben, so daß er die entsprechende Stelle gefunden haben dürfte, und V[ictor] S[erge] dürfte auf eine die ganze Angelegenheit bloßstellende Art geantwortet haben. (Er ist zur Zeit sehr vertraut mit [Boris] Souvarine, der die Buchveröffentlichung in nicht allzu günstigem Licht sehen dürfte.) Sie müssen die Angelegenheit unbedingt direkt mit Grasset (oder Vigneau) aufklären. Wir warten auf eine rasche Antwort. Das ganze bleibt unter uns [.]" (Übers.). Bernard Grasset war der Verleger von Trotzkis im Jahr zuvor erschienener Schrift "La révolution trahie" und der in diesem Jahr erschienenen Schrift "Les Crimes De Staline". -- Trotzkis Telegramm v. 10. April 1939 wurde gleichfalls in Mexico City verfaßt und aufgegeben. Trotzki äußert darin seine Sorge um seine erste Gattin Alexandra Sokolowskaja, die 1935 verhaftet und in ein sibirisches Lager verbracht worden war, wo sich ihre Spur im Jahr zuvor (1938) verlaufen hatte. Auch über seinen Enkel Sieva (den Sohn seiner 1933 durch Freitod aus dem Leben geschiedenen Tochter Sina) zeigt sich Trotzki besorgt. Dieser stand nach dem Tod seines Vaters Platon Iwanowitsch Wolkow (1936) in der Obhut von Jeanne Molinier, der ehemaligen Gattin des Führers der französischen Trotzkistenbewegung, die ihrerseits in enger Beziehung zu Sievas im Pariser Exil verstorbenem Vater gestanden hatte und nun, nach dessen Tod, Anspruch auf dessen zurückgebliebenen Enkel erhob. Trotzki, der aus dem mexikanischen Exil heraus sich bemühte, seinen Enkel zu sich zu holen, sollte erst im August 1939 vor Gericht damit durchkommen. Ziemlich genau ein Jahr vor seinem Tod konnte er dann schließlich den geliebten Enkel in die Arme schließen: "Standesamtliche Trauung Gefängnis Moskau März neunzehnhundert Alexandra Sokolovskaia ohne welche Aufenthalt kommun. Sibirien unmöglich stop Legaler türkischer Pass Sieva aufgrund sowjetischer Dokumente mit Verwandtschaftsangaben in Händen der Jeanne Molinier stop Ihre Weigerung Pass vorzulegen Falschaussage stop Anwendung Gesetz verlassene Kinder unfassbar schändlich stop Werde Beweise vorlegen für regelmässige Zahlungen an meinen Sohn Sieva und Jeanne Molinier / Trotzki".

Descripción: Mostly at sea, on board the barque "Sarah" of London, April 1831-14 March 1833 (with additions to 1835)., 1835. 4to (195 x 165 mm). (191) ff., including paste-downs and about 55 blanks. The journal with an engraved view as frontispiece, 15 full-page, 1 nearly full-page and 1 smaller manuscript maps and coastal profiles, plus a small engraved view mounted on 1 page. The lecture notes with a matching pair of engravings of a scull on and facing the title-page, and 27 pencil and/or ink anatomical drawings (including 2 full-page), some also with red. - Including: [Anatomical manuscript]. Morse, Edward George. Lecture Book [notes on anatomical lectures by Joseph Constantine Carpue]. [London], November-December 1828. Contemp, sheepskin parchment. A manuscript ship's journal kept by Edward George Morse (Bromyard 1805?-Deal post 1850?), who no doubt served, among other functions, as the ship's surgeon. Morse reflects on Arabian navigation and Arabian explorers, including the deservedly famous Ibn Battuta. "The Arabians like the Chinese are said to have employed the compass to guide them through the trackless sands of the desert or to enable them at the hours of prayer to direct their faces with precision towards the city of Mecca and tomb of the prophet. In the sixteenth century moreover when the Portuguese first visited the Indian seas they found that the Arabians are the chief navigators of those seas [.]". - Morse made his earliest dated entries in April 1831 at the island Mauritius in the Indian Ocean and others at Madagascar and its surrounding islands from May to August 1831. Those around Madagascar indicate he was on the barque Manchester, but from at least 11 December 1831 to his arrival back in England on 14 March 1833 he was on the barque Sarah, a 600 ton ship sailing out of London. In it he spent a year in the Seychelles 11 December 1831-15 December 1832, including Make Island, Bird Island, Praslin Island and La Digue. - In very good condition. The binding is soiled and abraded, and the boards slightly warped, but it remains structurally sound. A fascinating and unusual ship's journal with numerous maps, kept in the unused leaves of the author's illustrated anatomical lecture notes of a few years earlier. Nº de ref. de la librería 32457

Descripción: No place, c. 1941-1947., 1947. 10 ff. of ms., with an additional f. of notes. 11 ff. altogether, written in ink on one side only, narrow folio format (c. 35 x 17 cm). Complete manuscript of the famous "Hoplopoiia" section of Kazantzakis's Iliad translation: a pivotal part of the 18th book (rhapsody sigma) of Homer's epic. Kazantzakis and the scholar J. T. Kakridis collaborated on this metrical translation from classical Greek into the modern demotic language over a 14-year period. When it was privately printed in 1955, the controversial effort was hailed as "'living' poetry, through which the modern Greeks will be able to grasp much of the vigour, the passion, and the values of the heroic world of the Iliad" (C. A. Trypanis, The Classical Review 8 [1958], p. 280). The "Hoplopoiia", or the "Making of Armor for Achilles", is one of the most famous parts of Homer's poem: After the death of Patroclus has convinced Achilles to re-enter battle and avenge his friend, his mother Thetis seeks out the smithing god Hephaistus, who fashions a new set of armour for him, among which is a magnificently wrought shield. The detailed description (ekphrasis) of this shield, which takes up most of the present ms., is regarded as one of the paramount passages in Western literature: starting from the center and moving outward, the shield shows first the heavenly bodies (Earth, sky and sea, the sun, the moon and the constellations), then a city at peace (a wedding; a lawsuit; council) and at war (opposing armies; the gods; an ambush); country life (ploughing and reaping; vintage; a herd of cattle attacked by lions; a sheep farm); dancing youths and maidens; and finally, the all-enclosing ocean stream. In essence, the shield offers a physical encapsulation of the entire world: the various layers of this microcosm present a series of contrasts, antitheses that show the basic forms of a civilized, essentially orderly life. Leading up to Achilles's return to battle and one of the bloodiest parts of the Iliad, the Shield Ekphrasis also provides a moment of calm before the storm. - Traces of horizontal folds. Numerous revisions, corrections, and insertions in ink and pencil; caption "Iliada 18 (S. 368-618)" broadly underlined in red crayon. In the final page of notes (written on the reverse of a leaf on which the beginning of the translation has been struck out), Kazantzakis states that this version is not to be considered final and will require revisions as to orthography and accentuation. While the present ms. was probably composed and revised over a period of several years (the variations in pen type and ductus pointing to at least three main stages), the statement that work had been ongoing for three years suggests a time frame around the year 1944. Includes Certificate of Authenticity, issued by Spanos Rare Books, Athens. Nº de ref. de la librería 31749

Descripción: Leipzig, 14. III. 1803., 1803. Oblong 8vo. ½ p. The long-lost conclusion of Kleist's letter of March 13/14, 1803. to his sister Ulrike, probably the only part of the letter written on the 14th: " And now kiss on my behalf every finger of my eternally honourable aunt! And, as they stand in a row like organ pipes, kiss them all from the tallest to the least, the little mouse [i.e., his four-month-old niece Ottlie von Pannwitz] carved from an appleseed! But a single word from you, and before you know it I shall be rolling around in your living room with happiness. Adieu! Adieu! Adieu! O you my very dearest! / Heinrich / Leipzig, March 14th, 1803 " (transl. from the German original). Contemporary provenance note on the reverse: " I acquired the above handwriting of Heinrich von Kleist through his sister Ulrike. / Ida Jochmus " (transl.). Ulrike von Kleist, who is known to have grown increasingly eccentric in her age, met the editors of her brother's letters with extreme reserve and even burnt parts of his correspondence with her. "This little gift of hers to Ida Jochmus proves that Ulrike was capable of small concessions, even concerning the letters she treasured most highly" (cf. Klaus Kanzog, Edition und Engagement [1979] I, 149). Little is known about the recipient: Ida Jochmus, a resident of Berlin, was probably a neighbor of the Kleists; she may be related to the Frankfurt municipal judge Friedrich Jochmus. In later years she seems to been close to the conservative Hegelian circle. - The present fragment was flushed into the autograph trade at the end of the 19th century: in 1883 the Viennese dealer S. Austerlitz offered it as no. 617 in his catalogue; in 1900 Richard Bertling in Dresden offered it as no. 252 in his stock catalogue no. 36. Eight years later it was knocked down to an unknown bidder at Gilhofer & Ranschburg in Vienna and subsequently disappeared. - Acquired from a German private collection; includes Gilhofer's original catalogue description. Kleist, Briefe II (ed. by R. Reuß & P. Staengle), no. 70, p. 243, 248-251 ("lost"). Kleist, Werke (ed. by E. Schmidt with G. Minde-Pouet & R. Steig) vol. 5, no. 66, p. 295, lines 17-25.

Descripción: London, Harrison and Sons, 1919[-1920]., 1920. Large 8vo. 2 vols. (12), 264 pp. (4), 265-643, (1) pp. With frontispiece and 8 photo-plates. Original grey cloth. First edition, second issue. - Includes chapters on the advent of Islam on the Gulf coast, the Portuguese era in Eastern Arabia, the Al-Bu-Said dynasty, a history of commerce in the Gulf, a description of the country and the pearl fisheries, as well as a chapter on the tribes of the Gulf, with an entry on the Al-Kowasim ("a powerful Maadic tribe occupying the sea ports on the Pirate coast") as well as on Beni Yas and their towns, "Abu Thabi and Debaye". - The author’s first appointment in Arabia was as Resident at Aden in 1867; he was later made Agent and Consul at Muscat before being promoted Consul General, first at Bagdad then at Zanzibar. This work was published posthumously by his widow from a remarkable archive of notes, "many of which were jotted down on odd bits of paper as he [Miles] rode through the desert on his camel". The book remains an authority on Omani history and provides a storehouse of knowledge for any reader interested in the Arabian Gulf. - Backs a little faded, with two small holes repaired. The final two lines of text on the title page have been removed by a previous owner; they would have included the note "Reprinted 1920", confirming the copy as part of the second issue. An extremely uncommon and desirable work. Rare, only two copies at auction within the last decades (the Peter Hopkirk copy, Sotheby's, 14 Oct. 1998, lot 989: £10,000).

The Art of Riding, set foorth in: Astley, John).

Descripción: London, Henry Denham, 1584., 1584. 4to. (8), 79, (1) pp. With woodcut headpiece on t. p. and initials. 19th century orange-red crushed morocco by Riviere with leading edges gilt and elaborate gilt inner dentelle, rebacked. All edges gilt. The exceedingly rare first edition of one of the earliest English treatises on horsemanship, derived in part from Xenophon, Federico Grisone's "Ordini di cavalcare", and other authors, and in part from Astley's own experience. This is, in fact, the first translation into English of Xenophon's treatise "Peri hippikes" ("On horsemanship"). - The publication of Astley's "Art of Riding", perhaps his single most lasting achievement, came late in his life as an Elizabethan courtier. Here, he relays the doctrine of the Italian riding schools as he and other Gentleman Pensioners understood it, particularly on training the horse to respond to the hand. Astley was on friendly terms with Thomas Blundeville, whose Grisone translation two decades earlier counts as the first treatise on horsemanship to be published in English. - First three leaves slightly browned, with the upper right corner of each leaf imperceptibly restored from another copy; a closed tear to f. A4. Altogether a remarkable clean and crisp copy in an English master binding. The Fitzwilliam-Gloucester copy, bound with a common companion piece, Claudio Corte's "Art of Riding" (also published by Denham in the same year) commanded £14,400 at Christie's in 2006. The catalogue notes that the scarcity of these two work "at auction varies markedly; ABPC records some 5 copies of Corte's work at auction since 1975, but none of Astley's". Huth p. 11. STC 884. Mellon/Podeschi 12. Hoffmann III, 609 (s. v. Xenophon). Nº de ref. de la librería 37249

Descripción: Venice ("data in nostro Ducali Palatio"), 11 June 1579 ("indictione septima")., 1579. 4to (230 x 160 mm). Latin and Italian manuscript on vellum. 80 numbered ff., 21 lines. Headings and highlighted words in red; ruled throughout. Contemp. auburn calf, covers and spine elaborately gilt; all edges gilt; giltstamped supralibros "Iacobo Priolo" and date "MDLXXVIIII" on the covers. Wants ties. Interesting manuscript on the constitutional and legal history of the Venetian state, with many decrees regulating commerce, drafted in the age of the merchant-traveller Gasparo Balbi and of Venice's great trade relationship with the Middle East. The clean and well-legible manuscript, written in the classical humanist chancery style, was obviously prepared for members of the senate (signed at the end by the secretary, Giulio Zamberti, with the scribe's monogram). The decrees are in chronological order, rater than arranged by subject. The earliest dated decree is from the year 1351, but most date from the mid-16th century. The edicts regulated public life of the Venetian state, including civil servants' salaries, matters of commerce and trade, offices, criminal law, banishment, etc. The first leaf bears the dedication by the doge Nicolò da Ponte (in office 1578-85) to Jacopo Priuli, a member of one of the foremost modern-age families of Venetian patricians (producing two doges in the 16th century). The familiy, ennobled as early as 1297 and one of the richest in Venice, is also known for its patronage of the arts, commissioning several Tintoretto portraits. As a member of the senate, Jacopo would have been entitled to a private copy of the statues. The high quality of the binding with its rich arabesque ornamentation and wide ornamental borders on the covers reflects on the importance of the patron family. - Engraved bookplate of Amadeo Svayer (Gottlieb Schweyer, 1727-91), a Venice-based German merchant and bibliophile who had assembled a huge and select library which after his death was almost entirely integrated into St Mark's library.
