About this Item: Wien, Wappler 1784 - 1787., 1787. Erster bis Dritter Jahrgang (alles Erschienene), in 6 Bdn, gebunden. Mit 12 gest. Frontispices, 1 gest. Tafel und 3 gefalt. gest. Notenbeilagen. Dekorative grüne HLdr.-Bde. des 19. Jhdts., mit Rückenschild und goldgepr. Freimaurersymbolen am Rücken. Kopfgoldschnitt. Wolfstieg 506; Kloß 22; Taute 181: " Die erste bedeutende maurerische Zeitschrift. Obwohl in ca. 1000 Ex. aufgelegt, sind vollständige Sammlungen dieses unschätzbaren Quellenwerks doch äusserst selten " - Erschien in 12 Vierteljahrsheften. - Das von Joseph von Sonnenfelnd angeregte und von dem Wiener Dichter und Zensor Alois Blumauer (1755-1798) redigierte Journal "hat später vielen freimaurerischen Zeitschriften zum Vorbild gedient und wurde von ihnen bis tief ins 19. Jahrhundert hinein ausgeschöpft und immer wieder mit und ohne Quellenangabe nachgedruckt" (Kuéss/Scheichelbauer, 200 Jahre Freimaurerei in Österreich, 1959, p. 51). - Das erste Heft des zweiten Jahrgangs enthält auf einer gest. Notentafel den Erstdruck "Zur Gesellenreise", SS. 117-118 enthalten den Text von Joseph Franz Ratschky in der Version des Logenbruders Mozarts, Johann Baptist Holzer, der auf dem Notenblatt auch als Komponist ("von Br. H++r") angegeben wird. Es wird vermutet, dass Mozart Holzers Version des Liedes bei seinem eigenen Beförderungsritual in den Gesellengrad hörte und sich davon zur "Gesellenreise" (KV 468) inspirieren ließ. - Des weiteren enthält das 2. Vj. des ersten Bandes einen Notendruck auf 2 Bll. mit der gleichen Signatur, "Im Namen der Armen", das eine starke strukturelle Ähnlichkeit mit der heutigen, österreichischen Hymne "Land der Berge, Land am Strome" aufweist. Seit den 1960er Jahren diskutieren Musikwissenschaftler, ob die Musik der Landshymne nun von Mozart, wie lange angenommen, oder doch von Holzer stammt. - Im 1. Vj. des ersten Jahres mit einem Beitrag von Ignaz von Born "Ueber die Mysterien der Aegyptier", der als Vorbild für "Sarastro" in Mozarts Zauberflöte angesehen wird. - Aus der Charlesworth Masonic Library. - Titel mi kl. zeitgen. Freimaurerstempel (Zirkel und Winkel mit Initialen W E). Wenig stockfleckig, insgesamt sehr gutes und frisches Exemplar!. Seller Inventory # 22713

About this Item: , 1859-60., 1859. Albumen print from a waxed paper negative (calotype). Image Size: 26.5 x 19 cm. (10.5 x 11.5 inches). "Born to a wealthy family in the north of France, Louis De Clercq [1836-1901] was a military courier for Napoleon III during the Austrian campaign of 1859. When he was sent by the Marquis de Vogüé to Latakieh in early September 1859, Louis De Clercq was twenty-three years old and already a passionate archaeologist. He was to join the geographer and explorer Emmanuel Guillaume Rey in his exploratory mission of Syria. Rey was also actively involved with photography, and it is likely that the two photographed together, and even influenced one another in their work. However, Rey’s photographs remained unknown, while De Clercq, upon his return to France, published his ‘Voyage en Orient, 1859-60,’ six extraordinary albums of photographs in five volumes, consisting of 222 plates of rare beauty as well as of scientificand archaeological interest. The area covered during De Clercq’s trip was from Syria in the north to Egypt in the south. Most of his photographs deal with the ancient architecture of the Near East, but they are of a most unusual fashion and seen as never before through a modern eye" (Perez).Though De Clercq self-published these volumes in a reported edition of 50, only about a dozen sets--both intact and broken--are known to have survived, most of them in institutional collections.

About this Item: Le Normant c. 1811, Paris, 1811. Edition : New Edition, Atlas volume rebacked tastefully in half calf, saving the original marbled boards. Decorative red and gilt centerpiece on upper board with gilt title. Ten 8vo (216x135mm) text volumes with full brown cloth boards. With black calf labels with gilt text. , Text is in French. This 1811 edition is based on Chardin?s classic account of life and society in Persia, complete with new plates, coincided with renewed French imperial ambitions, aimed at rivaling the British possessions in India. Chardin a Frenchman was the son of a jeweller. He set out in company with a Lyon merchant named Raisin in 1665 for Persia and India. After a highly successful journey, during which he had received the patronage of Shah Abbas II of Persia, he returned to France in 1670. He set out again for Persia in August 1671. This second journey was much more adventurous than the first and did not reach Isfahan till June 1673. In Isfahan he was appointed the Shah's personal jeweler by Suleiman I. During this time he was allowed to engage in an extended tour through much of Persia. Through the course of this tour Chardain was able to study the culture, government and religion in detail.

About this Item: Le Normant c. 1811, Paris, 1811. Edition : New Edition. , Early 20th century full green-black morocco calf; boards with single gilt fillet border and inner decorative dentelles. Spine with six raised gilt tooled bands with burgundy gilt title on two and three and densely gilt compartments. All edges uncut. , The Parisian jeweller Jean Chardin, born in Paris, was the son of a wealthy merchant, himself jeweller of the Place Dauphine. In 1664 Chardin left France with another merchant to journey to the East, arriving in Persia in 1666. King Suleiman I, assigned the task of purchasing jewels which led Chardin to visit India. He returned to Persia in 1669 and to France the following year where he published his notes of his voyage in 1671 then leaving France for Persia once again. His time during 1672 in Constantinople was adventurous. Chardin made his escape to Persia across the Black Sea reaching Ispahan in 1673 where he stayed four years, followed the court in all its movements, thus making journeys throughout Persia. He also journeyed to several Indian cities, realising wealth. He returned to France in 1677 and documented his travels in publications. Chardin later moved to England, where he was received at court, soon appointed court jeweller and knighted in 1681. This jeweller became renowned as 'the flower of merchants' spending his free time on oriental studies. The remains of Chardin's library were later sold by James Levy at Tom's coffee-house, St. Martin's Lane, 1712-13. Chardin's work is valued for its fullness and fidelity; he received praise from Enlightenment thinkers such as Montesquieu,Rousseau, Voltaire, Gibbon, as well as Helvetius and Sir William Jones. Scholars of Persia also vouch for his importance; according to John Emerson, "his information on Safavid Persia outranks that of all other Western writers in range, depth, accuracy, and judiciousness." The most complete reprinted work on his travels is the present one augmented by notes of Orientalist Louis-Mathieu Langlès, 1811, in French, and considered by modern scholars to be the standard version. Chardin gave faithful accounts of what he witnessed in clear, unambiguous, and simple language., Size : Folio (550x356mm). , The atlas volume is illustrated with 65 sheets bearing 86 engravings which include: a frontis portrait of Chardin, two maps, of which one is a folding map of Persia and the other a map of the Black Sea, 9 additional folded sheets, 18 double plate sheets, 1 quadruple plate sheet, plus single plate sheets. , Volume : Atlas volume only, References : Weber 381; Graesse II 13; Wilson 40, Half-title, blank (2), frontis, engraved title, blank, map, 86 engravings. Text in French. A fine, handsome, large paper copy, in attractive 20th century binding. Maps and plates are clean and crisp. Seller Inventory # B5026

About this Item: Le Normant Paris, 1811. With 85 engravings on 64 sheets (9 folding), including portrait of Chardin, 18 sheets with double-illustrations and 1 sheet with 4, with additional large folding map of Asia with outline coloured by hand by P. Lapie, 1810, engraved by Blondeau, all protected with original tissue guards. Recent half-calf over marbled boards. Attractive, fresh example of the atlas, uncut, from the most desirable edition enhanced with new and larger plates. Printed on thick paper and extra-illustrated with a large hand-coloured map of the whole region. 'Chardin was a Huguenot who was forced to emigrate to England. He was knighted by Charles II and on his death was buried in Westminster Abbey. His first visit to the East was made in 1665, at the age of twenty-two, when he both gratified a love of travelling and carried on his trade as a dealer in jewels. His more important voyage was made in 1671. His route differed from that usually taken by travellers to the East Indies in that he proceeded by way of the Black Sea and the countries bordering thereon' (Cox I p 249-250). 'Chardin set out for Persia for a second time in August 1671, but on this occasion diverted through Smyrna and Constantinople, and took the Black Sea Route to Caucasia, Mingrelia and Georgia, finally arriving at Esfahan in June 1673. In Georgia he heard of a race of warlike women, the Amazons, who had at some time in the recent past invaded a kingdom to the northwest. He remained in Persia for four years, as he says 'chiefly following the court in its removals, but also making some particular journeys., as well as studying the language.' He apparently knew Esfahan better than Paris, and visited nearly every part of the country. His account of the Persian court and his business transactions with the shah are of considerable interest. In 1677 he proceeded to India, afterwards returning to France by way of the Cape of Good Hope' (Howgego C102); His second and more notable voyage to Persia, is important because it is in the account of this voyage that he describes life in late Safavid Persia' (Ghani p. 71). Includes, among others, lovely views of Tbilisi (Tiflis), Erevan, Ispahan, Persepolis as well as Georgian and Persian costumes, views of lavish palace rooms and the Coronation of Suleyman.

About this Item: Michel Charles le Céne, Amsterdam, 1727. 2 volumes in 1, small folio. (12 1/8 x 7 5/8 inches). Titles printed in red and black. Engraved portrait frontispiece, 44 engraved maps, plans and views (31 folding), 19 in-text engraved illustrations. Contemporary calf, spine with raised bands in seven compartments, red and green morocco lettering pieces in the second and third, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers and edges A lovely copy of a noted illustrated work on Asia, including maps and views of India, China, and Japan. "Johann von Mandelslo was a friend of Adam Olearius and a former page of the Duke of Holstein-Gottorp. Together Mandelslo and Olearius were sent by the Duke on an embassy to the Russian Czar and to the Shah of Persia [for the purpose of initiating trade relations with Russia, Tartary and Persia]. Mandelslo was authorized to leave the embassy in Persia and to continue his travels to the Far East. He went to Surat, Agra, and Goa in India, where he received great kindness from the English merchants, and he also visited Ceylon. He gives long accounts of the other parts of the Far East, which he did not visit personally. His return was made to England by sea via the Cape of Good Hope, which he visited in 1639" (Hill). Madelslo's narrative contains substantial information on the Far East. "Before his death, Mandelslo had entrusted his rough notes to Olearius, who subsequently published them bound with his numerous official accounts of the embassy" (Howgego). Following the first publication, Olearius added additional information to subsequent editions. A new edition in French translated by Wicquefort included still more additional material, including an account of the travels of Henri de Feynes to China, Formosa and Japan. The present edition published in Amsterdam in 1727 is a re-issue of the Van der Aa edition of 1719 (published in Leiden); both are celebrated as the best editions, being the most complete and with the largest number of illustrations. The plates include views and plans of London, Amsterdam, Brussels, Antwerp, Capetown, Goa, Surat, Jedo (Tokyo), St. Helena, Mauritius, Madagascar, the Canary Islands, Java, Congo and elsewhere.
