Le Congo.
0. 1883.

Printed in an edition of 500 copies. Apparently the first edition in French. Even the publisher is unsure to whom to attribute the work: although the title-page names the author as Philippe Pigafetta (translated by Leon Cahun), the spine gives Ed. Lopez as author, rather than as principle source. Rare.

PILKINGTON, M.,
A Dictionary of Painters
0. 1805. from the Revival of the Art to the Present Period. A New Edition, with Considerable Alterations, Additions, an Appendix, and an Index, by Henry Fuseli, R.A. London, 1805; 4to; xx, [ii],, 694, [xx] pp.; contemporary half calf, spine gilt in compartments, red morocco lettering piece, marbled boards; corners rubbed, spine and front hinge a little rubbed, a few preliminary pages bound in the wrong order but complete; a good and handsome copy. Pilkington dedicated the original edition of his Dictionary to the President and Council of the Royal Academy. This is the first edition of Fuseli's edition, containing many new biographical articles, and a short additional Preface. Fuseli revised and expanded this 1805 edition in a new edition five years later. The editorship and additions by Fuseli, a leading exponent of English, or rather of European Romantic painting, as well as a scholar of Fine Art, make this an invaluable work.

AL-QAMUS
Arabic-Arabic Dictionary, By Al-Firuzabadi
. no date, (16th - 17th century) Philological dictionary in manuscript, in which the author lists a comparatively small number of root words, then proceeds their pronunciation and the meanings and Qur'anic references associated with them. This is the work of a scholar for scholars, and was not intended for general reference use. At least three different people have had a hand in inscribing the work, on various qualities of paper. The first fifty pages are of the best quality, displaying the finest calligraphy in the manuscript. The manuscript was possibly made in Egypt, and is almost certainly a copy of an earlier manuscript. The scribe's identity is unknown. Usually one can find the scribe's name on the verso of the title page, or at the end of the manuscript, whereas here the title page is mounted, which possibly conceals the name. it is considered one of the main Arabic dictionaries, the others being Lis?n al-?Arab, T?j al-?Ar?s, and Al-Mi?b?h al-Mun?r. The manuscript also finishes with a prayer for the scribe, the owner, and anyone who reads the book - not with the scribe's name. Small folio, full red embossed calf in frayed leather slip-case. We can send you the full Arabic title in rich text.

Quarles (1593-1644) was chronologer to the City of London and secretary to Archbishop Usher in Ireland. He is best remembered for his poetry, characterized by original imagery, striking sentiment, fertility of expression, and a compression of style. Upon the outbreak of the 1644 rebellion in Ireland, he fled to England and was associated with Charles I, and as a consequence, his books and some manuscripts prepared for the press were plundered.
