About this Item: Gide et Baudry, Paris, 1856. Contemporary Half-Calf. Condición: Good. First Edition. Folio. (423x305 mm), complete set of 40 calotype mounted plates on strong paper, half-title, title, list of plates, some foxing & light water stains to margins of first 20 pages, not reaching the actual plates, contemporary half calf, rubbed with top spine damaged, title gilt on raised spine, with initials P. M. in silver. Auguste Salzmann was commissioned in 1854 by the Ministere de l Instruction Publique, a scientific mission to the Holy Land in order in to confirm the historical hypothesis of de Saulcy about the history of certain sites in Jerusalem which ignited fierce polemics in France. Salzmann left France to the Holy Land in September 1853, visiting the Greek islands, Egypt, and Syria for "reproducing by photography all the monuments left by the Chevaliers de Saint Jean de Jerusalem. Hoping to verify religious faith through the objective documentation of the city's holy sites." In 1854 Blanquart-Evrard published the first edition of the book entitled: Jérusalem, époque Judaique, Romaine, Chrétienne, Arabe. Exploration Photographique par A. Salzmann. Two years later, a revised reduced edition appeared, entitled: Jerusalem, etude et reproduction photographique des monuments de la ville sainte depuis l époque Judaique jusqu a` nos jours, par Auguste Salzmann, chargé par le Ministere de l Instruction publique d une mission scientifique en Orient (Paris: Gide et J. Baudry). The second portfolio exists in two sizes, a deluxe edition of 174 photographs and a small edition with 40 reduced photographs + A volume of text, Etudes sur Jérusalem, accompanied by the plates. The cost was prohibitive at 1422 francs, which resulted in the project not achieving a commercial success. This book was dedicated to Salzmann s friend the famous archaeologist L. F. J. Caignant de Saulcy who presumed that Salzmann s calotype plates will validate his theories about Jerusalem as a fact. Bibliographic references: Tobler 181f, Röhricht 440f.

About this Item: Wasmuth, Berlin, 1901. Hard Cover. Condición: Very Good. No Jacket. First Edition. Volume I (Textband): x, 166 pp., 229 illustrations / Volume II (Tafelband): 8 pp., 89 plates (4 double-sided, 25 coloured), modern buckram, Light toning to plates and letterpress, scattered marginal dust smudging to plates and letterpress; Ex-library: perforated stamps to title pages, ink stamps on dedication and content pages, labels on paste downs. Plates free of library markings. Plates volume published 1901, text published 1910. Without the Erlauterung der Tafeln [the 2 located sets, Heidelberg University and Boston Public Library are also without the Erlauterung der Tafeln as above]; an excellent set printed 1901-10. Of the highest rarity. Initially published in seven consignments of fascicules between 1901 and 1910, Sarre s Denkmäler Persischer Baukunst contained numerous plates and detailed texts (the latter were issued last), and became the main source for all those who were interested in Persian Islamic architecture. Providing excellent large scale photographs, Sarre s study has been widely used since then, and it remained the main source on the topic for nearly thirty years, only surpassed by A Survey of Persian Art, the multi-volume survey carried out and written by a dozen scholars from various countries. Sarre s Denkmäler was extensively used by Eric Schroeder, Arthur Upham Pope and others. Within the two volumes, the Seljuq monuments of Konya are discussed together with several sites located in Iran. The latter include the Safavid ancestral shrine in Ardabil (begun in the fourteenth century), the mausoleum of Bayezid al- Bistami in Bistam (twelfth to fourteenth centuries), and the Islamic monuments of Isfahan, dating from the eleventh to the seventeenth century. Throughout his career, Sarre placed the Seljuq monuments of Konya (he never wrote about other Anatolian cities) within the framework of Persian art that he established here. The issue of Turkish national and ethnic identity, so important in the 1920s and 1930s, had not yet emerged in the context of art history at the time Sarre prepared the first edition of Denkmäler Persischer Baukunst in the first decade of the twentieth century. Here, as in the Munich exhibition of Islamic art in 1910, the focus on Persian art and culture remains central and integrates Seljuq art into a framework that, according to the narrative of the time, put it at the top of the hierarchy of Islamic art in the eyes of Western scholars and collectors.

BEAUTIFUL ORIGINAL EDITION [4], 87 pp. + [1], Contemporary marbled half-calf, with original corners of the period, title gilt on ornate smooth spine, Complete copy to include: the false title, the title page illustrated with the large frontispiece vignette of V. Adam, the Hommage to S.A.R Guillame II électeur de Landgrave, souverain de la Hesse, Grand Duc de Fulde, the Preface and 36 pp. of introduction, the explanation pages of the plates and the Flora, the full list of the plates which are 69 to include 1 folding map all mounted on tab and depicting the landscapes, monuments, tribes, the fauna and flora of the area (1 of the plates- number 63- is coloured painted by J.C. Werner) the plates are mainly drawn by Madame de Laborde (1), Belliard (1), Champmartin (1), Dumenil (1), Léon de Laborde (64), Linant (13) and Oudart (1), lithographed by Deroy, Deveria, Engelmann, Fragonard, Hostein, Laborde, Lavigne, Sabatier, Smith, etc. Bookplate from the Library de La Rochefoucauld, Duc de Bisaccia, some light foxing throughout mainly in the margins, not affecting the plates or text. Archivist, curator, draughtsman and engraver, De Laborde (1807 - 1869) was the son of count (Louis-Joseph-) Alexandre de Laborde and Marie-Anne-Thérèse de Sabatier de Cabre. His family was for generations associated with government public-service appointments. His grandfather, Jean Joseph de Laborde was a Privy Councillor and banker to Louis XV (and guillotined in 1794). Alexandre de Laborde was a Privy Councillor and deputy for the Seine and Oise district. Léon de Laborde s education also focused on a political career. In 1824 his father lost his assignment and he and his seventeen-year-old son traveled throughout the Middle East, from Damascus to Cairo. There Léon met the engineer Louis Linant de Bellefonds (1799-1883) The two Frenchmen decided to set up an expedition to the newly-discovered site of Petra with a view to making drawings of the monuments. The team of Linant and de Laborde spent more time at the site than any previous Western visitors, documenting the remains through drawings. After his return, De Laborde served as an embassy secretary in Rome, London, and Cassel. In 1830 he published a detailed day-to-day report of his 1828 travel, Voyage de l Arabie Pétrée, richly illustrated with lithographs of his own drawings as well as a number of those by Linant. It includes various maps and plans, and an introductory essay on different aspects of the region, such as travel, pilgrimage, and trade. An engraver himself, he wrote a study on the history of mezzotint engraving, Histoire de la gravure en manière noire (1839) and another on the discovery of printing, Nouvelles recherches sur la découverte de l imprimerie (1840). In 1841 he was elected Deputy of the town of Étampes, succeeding his father. He married Louise-Félicie Cousin-Corbin. In 1842 he was elected a member of the Académie des Inscriptions et Belles Lettres. In 1847 he was appointed curator of the Department of Antiquities at the Louvre, and a year later he became the curator of the collections of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. His research of the archives of Burgundy led to important art historical studies covering the period 1384-1482. Among these, his three-volume publication on the dukes of Burgundy, Les ducs de Bourgogne (1849-1852) deserves to be singled out. His pioneering study on sixteenth-century French Renaissance painting (1850 and 1855), La renaissance des arts à la cour de France, is also based on archival sources. De Laborde was involved in the contemporary art scene, such as the 1851 London World s Fair and the 1855 Paris Exposition Universelle. In 1857 he was appointed general director of the Archives de l Empire. In 1868, the year before he died, he became a member of the Senate. A son, Alexandre-Léon-Joseph (1853-1944), was a specialist of illuminated manuscripts. Laborde is among the first western explorers of the region around Petra. His travelogue Voyage de l A.

The Discovery of the Assyrians. The excavations of Nineveh were conducted between 1851 and 1855 by Victor Place (1818-1875), Consul of France in Mosul. The French state had just voted a credit to continue the work begun by that other pioneer of Assyriology Paul-Emile Botta at the site of Khorasabad, and they nominated Place to succeed him. (He was born at Corbeil (France) in 1811) starting first his excavation at the site of Kuyundjik where he found a large quantity of antiquities, he resumed the excavation clearing about two hundred rooms in the palace of Khorasabd and he, too, found numerous stone wall reliefs and statues - most of which were lost in 1855, on their way to Europe, when the ships were attacked by rebellious Iraqi Tribesmen near Qurana, From the 235 boxes of antiquities, consisting of what Victor Place had discovered, together with material found by the British and by Fulgence Frensel Mission (1852-53), only 28 boxes arrived- Victor Place was the first to use photography for archaeological purposes, choosing as operator engineer Gabriel Tranchand for the calotypes (negatives and prints). The architect Felix Thomas, future painter, was commissioned to survey and design plans of the embellishments. These drawings were saved from the attack and have served to illustrate the book. The text is the first synthesis of all knowledge of Assyria and the famous palace of King Sargon II. (Avery, Architectural Library, p. 790.- Vicaire VI, 698).

About this Item: A. Hauser, Paris. Contemporary Half-Calf. Condición: Good. First Edition. Folio (450 x 290 mm.), 30 chromolithographs including title page, all coloured by hand, rubbed cover, bookplate of William Arthur, sixth Duke of Portland, rare beautiful copy. Paris, , [1842]. AN IMPRESSIVE PUBLICATION ON THE ARABIAN ANTIQUITIES OF SPAIN. While John Frederick Lewis and David Roberts chased picturesque views of Spain in 1832-33, the French aristocrat Joseph-Philibert Girault de Prangey visited Granada, Seville and Cordoba, investigating the country s Islamic monumental heritage. The results of his studies appeared in Monuments Arabes et Moresques de Cordoue, Séville et Grenade (1837-39) followed by Choix d ornements moresques de l Alhambra (1842). In 1841, he had published the sum of his researches in Essai sur l architecture des arabes et des mores, en Espagne, en Sicilie et en Barbarie, in which he tried to build up a global history of Islamic architecture, being the first to compare the monuments of Andalusia with those of the Maghreb and Egypt. His depiction combine the Romantic tradition, full of picturesque details and characters, with a new sense of visual precision that opened the path to a renewed appreciation of Spain s Islamic architecture and decoration. One of the finest books of views produced at the time; Girault de Prangey used the most accomplished artists to interpret his drawings in the lithographic stone. They include views, architectural details, ornaments and plans; the figures in the foreground of the views add charm as well as recording costume and customs. Famous painters engraved the plates first in Paris, then de Prangey coloured them according to the original colours. The documentation of de Prangey has an immense value due to the destruction of and changes to the Arab monuments in Spain. Bibliographic References: Palau 102631 (giving date as 1841); Creswell 356.

First Edition. 100 mounted colour plates, tipped-in colour illustrations, loose as issued in original pictorial cloth folders with ties, printed in grey, brown and yellow, half-title to vol.1 lightly browned, Uncut, vol.1 with additional printed wrapper inside folder, Preface by Gaston Migeon, very slightly browned but a very good set. Limited Edition of 200 copies of which this copy is number 124. Henri Benjamin Jean-Pierre Rivière (1864- 1951), French artist and designer best known for his creation of a form of shadow play at the Chat Noir cabaret, and for his postimpressionist illustrations of Breton landscapes and the Eiffel Tower. Henri Rivière is remembered as one of the foremost proponents of Japonisme, the French fascination with all things Japanese at the close of the 19th century. Inspired by the possibilities of lithography to render rich, atmospheric images in full colour, he enlisted Eugène Verneau in 1897 to assist him in producing the most ambitious project in colour printmaking Europe had seen to date. Through this collaboration with Verneau, Rivière was able to translate his panoramic Japonist landscapes of Paris and Brittany into over sixty monumental colour lithographs involving the execution and registration of dozens of limestone (often larger than 30 x 40 inches.) This work is a monumental achievement by Rivière on the Islamic ceramics. Creswell 736. [31320] Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. LIMITED EDITION. Nº de ref. del artículo: 011058

About this Item: Privately Printed, London, 1842. Contemporary Half-Calf. Condición: Very Good. First Edition. 68.0 x 52.0 cm. Volume I: (1842) Poem by Victor Hugo Les Orientales 1 leaf; lithographic title in colours; typographical title printed in red and black; Dedication, 1 leaf; List of Subscribers, 1 leaf; List of Plates, 1 leaf; Advertisement, 1 leaf; Historical notice, 20 pp. with parallel text in French and English; 51 plates (2 copper engravings in original hand-colour, 25 chromolithographs, 20 single-page B & W lithographs and 4 double-page); the plates are interleaved with text in English and French as well as some Arabic, and occasional wood-engraved vignettes. The copper-engravings are printed on India paper. Volume II: (1845) Lithographic title page in colours: Details and Ornaments from the Alhambra by Owen Jones Architect; typographical title printed in red and black; 50 plates of 51 (42 chromolithographs and 9 copper engravings on India paper), a little fraying to edges, some damp staining, modern sheep over contemporary boards, damp stained, rubbed, folio. The first published work to include chromolithograph printing. Set published 1842-1845. Large paper copy of the first edition of this highly detailed and beautifully produced work. The lithographs printed in colour are extremely important in their own right as early experimental examples of the chromolithographic process that dominated colour reproduction for most of the second half of the 19th century. These, together with an excellent text, add an additional and valuable dimension to this work as an important historical record of this Moorish jewel in early 19th century, at least twenty years before the first detailed photographic records were made. An unusually good copy of a work which, because of its weight of some 26 kg, is often found in poor condition. It can be described without exaggeration as monumental, not just for its size, but as a milestone in English colour printing being one of the first to use the technique of chromolithography. Furthermore, it is a monument to the determination of its authors: Jules Goury, who died of cholera at Granada in 1836, while preparing the original drawings and Owen Jones, on his return to England in 1835, was faced with the complicated task of finding a printer capable of carrying out the work. He finally resolved to set up his own printing press; the colour plates demanded up to seven pressings and nearly nine years of experimentation passed before the work was successfully accomplished. In his employment of flat colours Owen Jones anticipated the works of William Morris, the Pre-Raphaelites and the Art Nouveau movement in France. Bibliographic references: Palau 106 445.

About this Item: Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1914. Buckram. Condición: Very Good. First Edition. xix, 180 pp., + 2 maps, 87 photo plates & 6 folding out architectural plans, hors text at the end, 35 illustrations and figures in text, gilt buckram covers (slightly faded on spine) with gilt title and lettering on spine, upper edge gilt, intermittent internal spotting mostly to the plans, copy otherwise in very good condition. Very scarce - * in the Mesopotamia desert to the west of Babylon & the Euphrates; "I have attempted in this book to bring together the materials, so far as they are known, which bear upon the earliest phases of Mohammadan architecture, to consider the circumstances under which it arose and the roots from which it sprang. No development of civilization, or of the arts which serve and adorn civilization, has burst full-fledged from the forehead of the god ; and architecture, which is the first and most permanent of the arts, reflects with singular fidelity the history of its creators. Of these buildings, the most important is the great palace of Ukhaidir on the eastern side of the Syrian desert. I have given, also, the first plans and photographs of three small ruins in its vicinity, Qsair, Mudjdah, and Atshan. If they do not belong to the same period as the palace, they cannot be far removed from it in date. The problems presented by Ukhaidir led me back to Sasanian architecture, and I publish here new plans and photographs of two vast constructions at Qasr-i- Shirin. I have, further, taken this occasion to publish the plans of two mosques, the one at Diyarbekr, the other at Mayafarqin, both of which belong to a later period. The first of these has been known to us only through a sketch made by Texier, which I found to be inaccurate in many significant points, as it is also incomplete. The second has not previously been studied. The palace of Ukhaidir was practically unknown until the winter of 1908-9, although it had been seen by European travellers as early as the seventeenth century. Delia Valle passed by it in June 1625 on his way from Basrah to Aleppo, and described it as "a great ancient fabric, perfectly square, with thirteen pilasters or round columns on each side without, and other compartments of arches ; within which were many chambers, with a court of no great bigness and uncovered. The Arabians call this fabric Casr Chaider. I could not conjecture whether it had been a palace or temple or castle ; but I incline to believe it a palace rather than anything else." [Preface].

About this Item: Le Hay et Duchange,, Paris, 1714. Contemporary Full Calf. Condición: Very Good. First Edition. Folio. Engraved Title, [3 preface], [1 avertissement], 26 pp., (Explication des Estampes + Enterrement Turc, [1 engraved leaf of music, title within border slightly soiled, + 102 engraved plates by Simonneau, Scotin, Haussard of Franssières (comprising 100 numbered plates and 2 unnumbered, 3 double-page), full morocco in the spirit of "From the Threshold", backpacks ornate spine, roulette on the fields and inside, gilt edges, Le Hay et Collombat, Paris, 1714-1715. First edition of both parts. Part II containing the explanation of the plates plus two supplementary plates of Turkish ceremonies (the dance of the Derwishes and a Turkish funeral), appeared in 1715. Because the two parts are frequently bound together and the two supplementary plates are bound in with the rest of the plates, this second part, containing the only printed title, is often referred to as a second or even the third edition. This is incorrect; it is the first edition of the text, as its preface clearly states: "Je souhaite que le Public soit aussi content de ce nouveau travail.". A second edition of both parts, with engraved letterpress in which the preface has been changed, and with an added leaf Anecdotes de l Ambassade de M. De Ferriol , appeared with the imprint L. Cars À Paris chez Basan Graveur and the date 1714. This date is puzzling since this edition, which Boppe refers to as the second edition of part I, in facet contains the explication of the plates (part II) which first appeared in 1715. Laurent Cars had bought the plates and it is clear from his preface that the explanation had already appeared: "Il a fait retoucher le discours qui avoit des longueurs et des inutilites, ajoutes des choses importantes". The work was translated into German and printed at Nuremberg in 1719-21 (q.v.). Italian and Spanish piracies exist, and the plates were used by Viero in his Raccolta, Venice, 1783, and in Thomas Jeffery s Collection of the Dresses of Different Nations, 1757. The text either was written either by Charles de Ferriol, French ambassador to the Porte from 1699 to 1710, or he furnished Le Hay with the necessary information. The plates are after drawings by J. B. Van Mour who was established at Constantinople for many years during the first half of the 18th century. It has been suggested that he came to Constantinople in 1699, possibly as part of Ferriol s entourage. He is known to have died there in 1737 at the age of 66. Much of his work was done for Cornelis Calkoen, who was Dutch ambassador to the Porte, and some of these paintings are now to be found in the Amsterdam Rijksmuseum. This publication certainly contained the most popular and influential illustrations of Turkish dress to date. Its use as a source book was wide- spread.

About this Item: Imprimerie Royale, Paris, 1819. Contemporary Half-Calf. Condición: Good. First Edition. Large Folio. [3], 132 pp., 80 plates numbered 1-78 (+ 2 unnumbered folding plates), of which 9 are folding, 70 lithographed, 8 aquatinted, and 2 engraved, half-title, title vignette, marbled boards, slightly rubbed with minor repairs to spine, fitted in a modern slipcase, title gilt on raised spine, the plates represent costumes and views of Constantinople, Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Cairo, etc. scattered foxing throughout, some light dampness on margins of plates occasionally affecting small portions of plates, otherwise copy in good condition. First edition, Brunet states that 325 copies were printed. Two editions, the one marked "Seconde", were also issued in 1819 with the text in 8vo and the folio plates to be purchased separately. Forbin's was one of the first important French books to use lithography on a grand scale, and the standard of production is equal to that of Napoleon's "Description de l'Égypte" or "Denon's Voyage". The plates are after drawings by Forbin, Isabey, Prevost, Fragonard and Carle Vernet. The aquatint plates are all after drawings by Forbin himself. Most of the plates illustrate scenes in Egypt and Syria, including one of Drovetti, French consul in Egypt, measuring a colossal head. The two unnumbered plates illustrate the catacombs of Milos and a diagram of the Holy Sepulchre. In 1816 Forbin replaced Dominique Denon as Director of Museums of France, and in August 1817 he undertook a semi-official year-long voyage to the Levant, having been authorised to purchase antiquities for the Louvre. He travelled to Milos, where his son-in-law Marcellus had negotiated the purchase of the recently discovered Venus de Milo and from there he continued to Athens, Contantinople, Asia Minor, Syria and Palestine. From Jaffa he travelled overland to Alexandria and visited Egypt. His party included the artist Prevost and the engineer Linant de Bellfonds.

About this Item: published for The Author, London, 1757. Contemporary Cloth. Condición: Good. First Edition. Large Folio (546 x 368 mm), 46 etched and engraved plates on 47 sheets (plate 3 in two sections, 10 folding) by P. Fourdrinier and T. Major after Giovanni Battista Borra, light toning and foxing to scattered plates, very good copy in general. A TALL COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION OF THIS IMPORTANT ARCHITECTURAL SOURCE. "With the Ruins of Balbec following Palmyra in 1757, Britain was firmly placed in the forefront of archaeological studies" (Harris British Architectural Books and Writers 936). Blackmer 1835. FIRST EDITION of a magnificent work published to wide acclaim and influential on contemporary British Buildings. Wood, accompanied by James Dawkins, John Bouverie and the Italian artist and architect Giovanni Battista Borra, travelled extensively in the Levant, reaching the relatively not visited sites of Palmyra and Balbec in 1751. He published The Ruins of Palmyra in 1753, and The Ruins of Balbec four years later. Robert Wood was a British traveller, classical scholar, civil servant and politician. In 1750-1751 Wood travelled around the Levant with two wealthy young Oxford scholars James Dawkins and John Bouverie (who died of a fever early in their expedition) and an Italian draftsman Giovanni Battista Borra. Their primary goal was to explore the Troad and locate the key sites mentioned by Homer. Moving south into Syria, they then took careful measurements and drawings of the ancient Roman ruins of Palmyra and Baalbek. The results of these were published in 1753 and 1757 in both English and French editions and were among the first systematic publications of ancient buildings. Both works were of great influence on Neoclassical architecture in Britain, Continental Europe and America. From 1753 to 1756, Wood was the tutor and travelling-companion (or Bear-leader as such men were known at the time) of the young Duke of Bridgewater, the richest peer in England, in making the Grand Tour. Wood's first voyage to the Levant was made in 1742. In 1750 another expedition was suggested by James Dawkins and John Bouveri. It is likely that the prime mover was Dawkins and that he intended to model the journey on Stuart and Revett's activities in Athens, which he was helping to finance. The three men accompanied by the architect and draughtsman Giovanni Batista Borra, toured Asia Minor, where Bouverie died. The others then returned to Athens where they joined Stuart and Revett. In 1751 Wood, Dawkins and Borra returned to Syria with some difficulty they managed to reach Palmyra and then went on to Baalbec, "both of Wood's publications on these unfamiliar sites were important architectural source books" (Blackmer). Borra's topographical views in the two works were engraved by Thomas Major and probably suggested to him the form of his later work on Paestum.

About this Item: Veith et Hauser, Paris, 1836. Contemporary Half-Calf. Condición: Good. First Edition. Part 1: lithographic title and 1 frontispiece 'Mosquée de Cordoue', 1 pp. of text within lithographic borders, 1 pp. of list of plates, 8 lithograph plates (some browning to plate 3 and plate 6 is erroneously numbered 3) / Part II: lithographic title and frontispiece 'La Giralda et Alcazar de Séville', 1 pp. of text within lithographic borders, 1 pp. of list of plates, 6 lithograph plates / Part III: lithographic title and 1 frontispiece 'Souvenirs de Grenade et de L'Alhambra', 5 pp. of text within lithographic borders, 1 pp. of list of plates, 30 lithograph plates of which one represents the Alhambra Palace and the last plate is folding on a double page (some browning to plate 22), half-calf morocco binding, covers slightly rubbed, some marginal staining (not affecting the plates), copy in very good condition otherwise. Published 1836-1839. AN IMPRESSIVE SERIAL PUBLICATION ON THE ARABIAN ANTIQUITIES OF SPAIN, also available hand-coloured, showing external and internal views, architectural details and ornaments, with a plan of the Alhambra. One of the finest view books produced at the time; Girault de Prangey used the most skilled artists to interpret his drawings in the lithographic stone. Includes views, architectural details, ornaments and plans; the figures in the foreground of the views add charm as well as recording costume and customs. The plates were engraved first in Paris by famous painters, after which de Prangey coloured them according to the original colours. The documentation of de Prangey has an immense value because of the destruction and changes that have taken place on the Arab monuments in Spain. Part titles and the numbered plates are signed as drawn by Girault de Prangey (Granada 18, 26 as painted by him) but for Cordoba 1, after Asselineau, and Granada 27, after Bayot and Sabatièr. The three parts are as follows: 1- Mosquée de Cordoue, vues générales intérieurs détaills et plans dessinés et mesurés surles lieux en 1833. II- La Giralda et L Alcazar de Sévile. III- Souvenirs De Grenade et de L Alhambra. After the publication of Murphy's "The Arabian Antiquities of Spain" in 1816, this book is considered the first detailed study of the Arabian architecture in Al-Andalus. Girault de Prangey was at first interested in the Roman and Greek architecture, but later he concentrated on studying Arab arts. He travelled in 1832 to Granada, Cordoba and Seville and spent three years there after which he produced this monumental work.

About this Item: Black, Parbury & Allen, London, 1817. Contemporary Full Calf. Condición: Good. First Edition. iii,47 pp. + 19 p. of plates : ill. (some col.), map ; half-title, folding hand-coloured engraved map of Gour in 1801, eighteen fine hand-coloured aquatint plates after T. Medland, manuscript note loosely inserted "Presented to the India Office Library by the Rev. Charles Arthur Molony, M.A. late vicar of Saint Lawrence, Thanet, a Grandson of Mr. Henry Creighton, the author of this book.", contemporary polished calf gilt, with gilt armourial of the East India College to centre of each board, spine lightly soiled and worn round the edges, joints repaired, cracked, East India College presentation label to upper pastedown, awarded to W.L. Wilkinson as first of his class in drawing, dated 3 December 1822. VERY RARE AND SCARCE COPY. Creighton was the Superintendent of an indigo factory at Gour, in eastern India. He was an excellent amateur painter and in order to find subjects for his paintings, he frequented the ruins of Gour at his leisure hour. Gradually, from his pastime he developed a serious interest on these ruins and antiquities. At the time of writing, Gour was regarded as an immense quarry, whence bricks had been carried to Malda, Murshidabad, Rajmahal, and other places, and many majestic and beautiful edifices of great antiquity had been thus destroyed. Marbles and stones, being rarities in Bengal, were the objects of constant depredation, which was so ruthlessly carried forward that some noble structures were defaced or undermined for the sake of a few blocks or slabs of marble built into their brick walls (Lewis 1873: 130 1). Even Charles Grant, Creighton s master, was a party to this despoliation. At his suggestion, St. John s Church was paved with stones taken from these ruins, and sent down by him to Calcutta, at a cost to the church building fund of Rs 1,258. Materials for floors, chimney pieces, and sepulchral monuments, were thus appropriated and carried off by anyone disposed to take possession of them (Lewis 1873: 130 1). In this scenario, Creighton worked in the opposite direction. He put in considerable labour to extricate richly carved architectural fragments and detached inscriptions from the deep jungles with which Gour abounded in order to prevent them from falling prey to the undertakers. He carefully recorded their place of occurrence and fondly preserved them in the courtyard of his factory at Guamalati. These inscriptions and antiquities collected at Guamalati were later removed by William Francklin, Reginald Porch and other British officers to England and fortunately found their way to the major public collections of England and USA (Mitra 2010: 30 8). Creighton visited all the extant monuments of Gour, painted sketches of them, and even repaired some of the crumbling edifices like Firuz Minar (Mitra 2010: 13). He also collected the prized glazed bricks of Gour and coins, the latter have been occasionally found among the ruins in his time. His antiquarian interests led him to Pandua where he prepared detailed architectural drawings of the Adina Mosque (Francklin 1910: 14) and probably other monuments, which never came to light. Gradually, he developed a large portfolio of drawings of the ruins of Gour and its vicinity. In 1801, he completed the first scientific survey of the city of Gour and prepared a detailed map of its ruins. He presented a copy of his survey map on a reduced scale to Marquis of Wellesley, the then Governor General of Bengal (1798 1805). A year after his death, in 1808, six of Creighton s drawings were engraved and published by James Moffat in Calcutta. Still nine years later, in 1817, the result of his exertions at Gour was finally published in the form of a book entitled: "The Ruins of Gour: Described and Represented in Eighteen Views with a Topographical Map", compiled from his manuscripts and drawings in the hope of providing some financial support for his family. The aquatints are engraved by Thomas Medland, who was the drawing master at The East India Company's College. Nº de ref. del artículo: 012385

About this Item: Longmans, London, 1816. Contemporary Half-Calf. Condición: Good. First English Edition. Volume I: xlii, 339 pp. steel engraved portrait frontispiece + 1 folding map of the Kingdom of Morocco, + 44 steel engraved plates / Volume II: ix, 373 pp; 36 steel engraved plates of which 2 are folding, Volume III: Atlas, 3 folding maps, 4 folding plates,marbled boards, lightly rubbed & bumped, marbled endpapers, title gilt on raised bands, scattered foxing, some foxed browning to map of morocco, stamps to fly leafs, bookplate of Henry B. H. Beaufoy verso front cover. Set complete. The Atlas contains three large folding maps: North Africa, Asia Minor and Arabia & The Red Sea. Plus three large folding plates: Plate 72 in 2 parts of El-Sahhara and one plate of El -Aksa. Badia y Leblich was a Spanish traveller who assumed the name Ali Bey El Abassi and disguised himself as an Arab. He seems to have been travelling as an agent of the Spanish government. In 1803 he departed for Tangier and travelled through North Africa to Egypt, where he met Chateaubriand in Alexandria. He continued on to Cyprus and had reached Mecca by the beginning of 1807, returning via Jerusalem, Damascus and Constantinople to Spain the same year. He joined the Napoleonic forces in the invasion of Spain, was forced to withdraw with them to France after their expulsion from the Peninsula, and was resident in Paris by 1813, which accounts for the fact that the first edition of this work was printed there. He s commonly reported to have been a spy of Napoleon. Ali Bey was the first Christian to describe in some detail Mecca, and the mosque Omar in Jerusalem, as well as some little known aspects of Islam. After the publication of this work he planned a second journey under the name Ali Othman and returned to Syria, where he died suddenly at Aleppo, his disguise apparently having been penetrated. The plates in this work are mostly after designs by Ali Bey and include architectural plans, natural history subjects and views. In modern times scholars have demonstrated that he was actually very involved in the complex Spanish political events in the 1808-1810 period of the Peninsular War.

About this Item: De Baudry and Theoph. Barrois,, Paris, 1833. Contemporary Half-Calf. Condición: Good. First American Edition. Text Volume: 8vo. ix, 333 pp., 2 lithograph portraits, 1 large folding plan, contemporary half-calf with marbled boards, rubbed round edges, marbled edges, title gilt on decorated spine / Atlas: Folio. 16 double-page lithographed maps and plans, of which 15 are hand coloured, contemporary boards, rubbed, spine worn, foxing throughout both volumes, small tear to folded map in text volume without any loss, bookplates of Antonio Capucho and Annibal Fernandes Thomaz verso covers. Extremely rare text and atlas in two volumes. A rare account of this 16th century sea voyage around the Arabian Peninsula. The present work is the first appearance of this journey in print, published from the original logbooks of João de Castro's voyage. We have found only one copy of this work in international auction trade, from 1964. João de Castro was a Portuguese nobleman and fourth Viceroy of Portuguese India. He was called Castro Forte ("Stronghold" or "Strong Castle") by the poet Luís de Camões. In 1535 he accompanied Dom Louis to the siege of Tunis, where he had the honour of refusing knighthood and reward bestowed by the Emperor Charles V. In 1538 he left for India in the company of his uncle Garcia de Noronha, and on his arrival at Goa went off for the relief of Diu. In 1540 he served on an expedition to Suez under Estêvão da Gama (the son of Vasco da Gama and then Viceroy of Portuguese India), by whom his son, Álvaro de Castro, a child of thirteen, was knighted, as a compliment to him. Estêvão da Gama went on an expedition to the Red Sea with 12 large galleons and carracks, and 60 galleys, on 31 December 1540; D. João de Castro being the captain of a galleon. This expedition to Suez was truly remarkable, and João de Castro made a detailed roadmap of it, with maps, calculations, pictures and detailed notes from the coasts of the Arabian Peninsula as of those of the countries of today s Somalia, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt, as far as Suez and to several ports in the shores of the Sinai Peninsula, all included in the Roteiro do Mar Roxo, which was offered to Prince Louis. Eight months later he returned to Goa on 21 August, having acquired by the experiences made during the expedition, the name of a philosopher. "I pay great attention to eclipses of the moon," he wrote, "as also to longitudes and latitudes, fishes, seaweeds, currents, winds, the colour of the Red Sea, and every detail that might concern the art of navigation", to the delight of his friends Pedro Nunes and Prince Louis, who had furnished him with special instruments and other assistance for his voyage. D. João de Castro called for the need of the co-ordination between the observation and reason, in the case of the navigation: "This science of navigation is poorly distributed among the men, or because they act like idiots, which for a long time and through continuous exercise they reach many particulars, though with all their works are never to gain authority in their office, or those who have no experience, but with much learning and great practice in the science of mathematics, reached the shadow of this art but not the true science." It is in overcoming this separation that rooted the ways of science, which reaches an understanding with no epilogue, an open knowledge, in constant motion approach, not compatible with the spirit of the system. João de Castro tell us that the knowledge of science is " to arrive at the truth", that science is "closer to the truth and not the absolute truth": "We need to consider how much we owe for teaching us how not to ignore the fact that we can be closer to the truth, as are human things that men can learn (.). Not only to be expected by virtue of reaching the truth, but also get close to her." In 1543 he was named commander of a fleet; and in 1545 he was sent to India to assist Martim Afonso de Sousa, who had been dismissed of the viceroyalty.

About this Item: Melchior Sessa & Petrus de Ravanis, Venice, 8 June, 1521. Contemporary Boards. Condición: Good. First Edition. 64 leaves (127 pp), Latin text, printed in gothic type throughout, Sessa s woodcut device on title (cat with mouse), woodcut diagrams, large ornamental initials, tables, contemporary parchment-covered boards, new spine & endpaper, remnants of clasps, another title with which this work was originally bound was likely removed, cover soiled, light damp stain at top corner of few leaves, scattered foxing, otherwise copy in general good condition. Al-Qabisi (died 967), was a famous Arab astrologer in the circle of Sayf al-Dawla, the ruler of Aleppo. This edition of the Al-madkhal ila Sina'at Ahkam al-Nujum ( Introduction to the Art of Judgments of the Stars) contains De planetarum coniunctionibus, a work which was once attributed to Alchabitius, translated into Latin by Joannes Hispalensis, and commented on by Joannes de Saxonia. However, this is probably not section four and five of the Madkhal as previously thought, since it does not seem to have been known to the two chief Arabic sources on al-Qabisi's life, al-Bayhaqi and Hajji Khalifa. This possibly spurious text was only previously published by Ratdolt in 1485. This work was dedicated to the Emir of Aleppo, Prince Sayf al-Dawla, and survives in at least twenty-five Arabic manuscripts, and over two hundred manuscripts of its Latin translation, with twelve printed editions of the Latin work between 1473 and 1521 (this edition). The Arabic text has received at least three Latin translations, which attracted several commentaries and were, in turn, translated into other European languages. In the 12th century Johannes Hispalensis translated it, but it was not published until in 1512 by Melchiorre Sessa in Venice. The 1473 copy and others until 1521, have writings about Al-Qabisi by John of Saxony. Al-Qabisi wrote a modest book on arithmetic, in which he discusses Euclid's perfect numbers and how to form them, and Thabit ibn Qurra's theorem on amicable numbers.

About this Item: ex Typographia Sac. Congregationis de Propaganda Fide,, Roma, 1642. Contemprary Vellum. Condición: Good. First Edition. Folio. 350 pp, woodcut device on title, blank leaf, woodcut printer`s device to title and a variant to verso of final f., ivory colour vellum binding of the period, professionally rebacked conserving original spine, hand written title on raised spine, binding rubbed, wear to edges, scattered foxing, ex Typographia Sac. Congregationis de Propaganda Fide, Excudebat Joseph David Luna, Maronita, Roma, First Edition, 1642. The work is well-printed, with the Arabic Bible types by Joseph David De Luna, a nephew of the Archbishop of Damascus Serius Risius; he styled himself in Arabic " Joseph of Mount Lebanon, from the town of Baslukith", when he printed also Guadagnolus s Apologia of 1637. ( see Graf IV 252, Schnurrer 247). ***The rare first edition. We can trace only 2 other copies at auction since 1981, including the Camille Aboussouan copy (Sotheby`s, 17th June, 1993, lot 407). Guadagnoli (c.1596-1656) was the first Italian nominated as professor of Arabic at the at the Collegium Sapientiae in Heidelberg in 1642. He was instrumental in the printing of the Arabic Bible. In the preface the author explains how his grammar serves a special purpose. The Arabic Bible was at that time being printed in an unvocalised text in order to make it acceptable to the Arabic speaking world, and with this in mind Guadagnoli has paid special attention to the ratio et usus scribendi, and to the essential of metrics. (Schnurrer 72, Lambrecht 804, Smitskamp Philologia Orientalis 220). In the grammar we find printed for the first time the famous metrical poem Carmen Chazregiacum ( al-Qasida al-Hazragiya ) on pp. 286-329, and the Carmen de invocationibus (al-Qasida al-Minadat), printed according to Guadagnoli after a manuscript from the library of Della Valle. The Latter poem was also edited in 1745 by G. Kuypers. At the end of his grammar Guadagnoli printed also a few lines of an Arabic poem by the well known 15th century Maronite theologian Gabriel Ibn Al-Qula i. ( See Graf III 331). ref.

The Moka name became famous in Europe in the sixteenth and seventeenth century. The first cafe opened in 1554 in Constantinople. The passion for Mocha won Venice in 1615 and opened the first coffee in Vienna (Austria) in 1640. Harvested in Yemen, coffee was transported by small vessels to Jeddah where the Turkish ships embarked for Suez and Egypt . The majority of coffee purchases for European countries was bought through the Venetian merchants and the French (Marseille). However, the Dutch were also able to establish a counter in Mokka, and each year, a Dutch vessel had to load the coffee to Batavia where it was sent back to Europe .

The fleet moored in January 1737 in Moka. they attacked the city, before entering into negotiations with the Imam, whose destitution and dismissal was obtained by le Garde -Jazier from the governor. A new and favourable agreement for the French was then negotiated and a trade deal reached with compensation for harm done.

First edition of the author's magnum opus, a monumental bio-bibliography of Syriac literature based on the manuscript holdings of the Vatican Library. This edition was almost entirely destroyed by fire which broke out in 1768 in Assemani s apartment near the Vatican Library. The large part of this monumental work was collected by Assemani himself, who returned from a collecting expedition to Egypt and Syria that took place from 1715 to 1717, carrying more than 150 manuscripts, which were placed in the Vatican Library, where they formed the nucleus of the library s subsequently famous collection of Oriental manuscripts. Joseph Assemani was one of the Lebanese scholars who studied in Rome, and who had a profound impact on the field of Oriental studies in Europe in the 18th century. Assemani was appointed Prefect, devoting most of his life carrying out an extensive plan for editing and publishing the most valuable Syriac, Arabic, Ethiopic, Armenian, Persian, Hebrew and Greek manuscripts kept in the Vatican Library. Besides his various publications on a wide range of Oriental subjects, this work is considered his best achievement. It was supposed to contain twenty volumes, of which six were supposed to cover Oriental languages, four Greek and the last ten other languages, but he was only able to finish three volumes before his death. He was succeeded by another member of the Assemani family, Istifan Awad Assemani (1709-1782), who continued cataloguing the manuscripts in the Vatican Library and other libraries in Italy.

About this Item: Arthus-Bertrand, Paris, 1874. Contemporary Half-Calf. Condición: Good. First Edition. Volume I: (Two Parts): "Relation du Voyage", 388 pp., numerous wood engravings in text, appendices, index / Volume II: consists of two texts: "De Petra À Palmyre" by Louis Vignes and "Voyage de Jerusalem a Karak et a Chaubak", by MM. Mauss & Sauvaire, 222 pp., + [3], tables / ATLAS: 78 plates 19.3 x 25.4 cm, (64 photogravures on steel by Ch. Negre from photographs taken by Louis Vignes and 14 lithographs by Eugène Cicér), all plates described, contemporary half-calf, title gilt on raised decorated spine, spines faded, marbled endpaper, set clean and in very good condition, no date of publication, (1874). The Duke of Luynes (1802-1867), an eminent numismatist, scholar, archaeologist and collector of art, directed and sponsored this important expedition to Palestine, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon in 1864. Louis Vignes (1831-1896) was a French marine officer who took photographs in the Holy Land using the Calotype system from 1859. He accompanied Honore d'Albert, Duke of Luynes at the end of September in 1864 on an archaeological journey from Beirut to Palmyra. His greatest achievement was the exploration of the Dead Sea basin in the same year. Vignes took many photographs during his voyages and explorations in the Holy Land. The photographic plates, published in this work, were lithographed by Charles Negre after photographs taken by Louis Vignes. "From 1854 until 1867 Negre dedicated himself to the perfection of an exquisite process that he termed heliogravure. The result was a printing plate capable of reproducing the entire gradation of tones, from the white of the paper to the strongest black, maintaining the precision and the fine detail of the photographic print , as he stated at a scientific congress" (Stuhlmann, in "Imagining Paradise", p.105). In 1856, the Duke of Luynes, whose primary interest was in publishing photographic evidence in a manner that would prove permanent, announced a prize of 8,000 francs for the best photomechanical reproductions. It was not until nine years later that he commissioned Negre to make the plates for his own planned publication. "Negre, a painstaking craftsman, lavished his skill upon the production of the plates, transforming the dull photographs into evocative images of great poetry. He considered this series his best achievement and submitted it to the jury."(Stuhlmann, p.105). Ultimately foiled by his own artistry, [Negre] was not awarded the Duke of Luynes renowned prize. because none of the judges believed that anyone but Negre himself could produce such beautiful photo-engraved plates .

About this Item: Press of the Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem, 1858. Contemporary Full Calf. Condición: Good. First Edition. 536 pp., Arabic text within borders, double column per page, engraved illustration at the beginning of chapter one, small tear to lower end of title page without loss, cover rubbed at edges. "Palestine held an important religious place in the world, which enabled the country to have a significant role in the world culture of the time, although it is not considered the seat of printing. Arabic printing presses were found in the Old City of Jerusalem, in Haifa, and in Jaffa. However, there is no evidence to corroborate these lists in other sources. This minimal information however plays an important role in confirming that the early printing presses made it possible for the establishment and rise of printing and publishing in Palestine. The establishment of these printers and their ability to flourish was accompanied by the growth of the missionary movement in Palestine and other areas of greater northern Syria and the involvement of various European churches in the missionary activity of the different Christian denominations. Towards the end of 1849 the Orthodox Patriarch Kerilous II recommended that the "Society of the Holy Sepulchre" establish a printing press for the Church on the grounds of the Orthodox Patriarchate in Jerusalem. The Beirut newspaper Al-Mashriq noted in 1903 (Issue 2, No. 5) in an article titled "The History of Publishing in the East" that the orthodox printing press survived well into the 20th century and published a number of instructional and church books in both Arabic and Greek. The press published approximately 36 books in Arabic and 29 books in Greek from its establishment to 1883 alone. See: Mohammed Basil Suleiman". Jerusalem Quarterly. Copac lists only one copy at the British Museum. Size: Folio. Nº de ref. del artículo: 012404
