GUÉRIN DU ROCHER, PIERRE:
Histoire véritable des temps fabuleux. Qui contient l'histoire d'Egypt, depuis Ménès jusqu'a à sesostris, dévoilée par l'histoire-sainte, depuis Noé jusqu'a à l'entrée des Israélites en Egypte. Four volumes. Paris, Charles-Pierre Berton, & Liege, 1776-1779.
. Pp. (iv), xl, 463; (iv), 598, (2); (iv), 643; (iv), 332. With one folding map. Attractive contemporary speckled calf, flat spines gilt with green title-labels, rubbed. Front hinge to volume one starting to crack. First edition of this controversial work. The author was a French Jesuit who tried to prove that all what was known about the Egyptians from Menès to the foundation of the Persian Empire was nothing but a violated extract from passages of the Scripture dealing with Egypt. Of course the work evoked a lively polemical discussion. Volume four contains Abbé Chapelle's defence of the authors' original views. Brunet vi, 1227. De Backer- Sommervogel iii, 1909. Ibrahim-Hilmy i, 279.

AL-MAHDË AL-HIFNAWI, MUHAMMAD / MARCEL, JEAN JOSEPHE (TRANSL.):
Contes de Cheykh El-Mohdy, traduit de l'arabe le manuscrit original. Three volumes. Paris, Henri Dupuy, 1835.
. Pp. (ii), 484; (iv), 496; (ii), 508. With 25 engraved plates and many vignettes in the text. Partly with some staining. Contemporary red paper-covered boards, red morocco spines with four raised bands, lettered and decorated in gilt, lightly rubbed. A collection of fables in the same genre as the Arabian Nights translated into French from an Arabic manuscript by Marcel. Jean Josephe Marcel (1776-1854) was a French orientalist and pupil of Silvestre de Sacy. He was commissioned by Napoleon to manage the national printing press in Egypt during the French expedition in 1798-9. After his return he was placed in charge of the l'Imprimerie Impériale in Paris. During his stay in Egypt Marcel received the manuscript of these tales from his friend Al-Mahdi, the secretary general of the Divan of Cairo, who Marcel beleived to be the author. However, this has not been proven and some people beleive that Marcel might be the author himself. The collection comprises two parts: I. "Les dix Soirées malheureuses d'Abd-errahman êl-Iskanderany" (volume one) appeared first in 1829; II. "Séances du Moristan, ou les Révélations de l'Hôpital des Fous du Kaire" (volumes 2 and 3) appeared in 1832-3. Cf Gay 132.
