Finally on 31 leaves Erpenius's learned annotations , and coronidis loco, on 2 leaves the text and translation with commentary of the first sura. The first scholarly edition of any substantial chapter of the Qur an, translated by the pre-eminent Arabist of the early 17th century.
Prior to the 19th century, European preoccupation with the Qur'an is normally associated with a desire to understand and refute rather than to appreciate. But in the case of the editor of this book, the interest in the Qur'an was primarily philological. Thomas Erpenius believed that the prerequisites for gaining a good initial grasp of Arabic were a grammar, a dictionary and the Qur'an.
As the only Arabic text to be consistently fully vocalised, the Qur'an offers an ideal exercise for those wishing to improve their reading speed if not their understanding and it was to this end that Erpenius published the fully vocalised text of Surat Yusuf. Prefaced by some essential notes on phonetics and orthography the tahajji and accompanied by two Latin versions of his own: the interlinear, which follows the Arabic word for word; and the marginal, which is a freer rendering.
There follows a third translation, taken from the medieval Latin version first printed in Basel in , and his own detailed philological notes to the Arabic text.
Erpenius also remarks, in a note to Arabists, that it was the inaccuracy of this medieval version - the so called Cluniac version and its even less faithful Italian and German derivatives - that had led to a demand for a fresh translation. This part of the book concludes with Al Fatiha the text of the opening chapter of the Qur'an , his own two versions and the Cluniac translation, together with a fourth translation by Guillaume Postel, first printed in that eccentric Frenchman s Gammatica Arabica Paris, c.

About this Item: Pairs, Adrien Turnebe, Two vols. Concerning Theophrastus account of the four elements, it has been debated to what extent this conforms to the Aristotelian doctrine. In particular, it is not clear whether Theophrastus followed Aristotle in holding that the heavens are made of a fifth element, the ether, distinct from the four sublunary elements, or whether he claimed that the heavens are simply made of fire It has been argued, for instance, that Theophrastus abandoned the fifth element, but used it only in arguments against Plato without endorsing it himself see Steinmetz There is no doubt, on the other hand, that he gave prominence to the element of fire.
In his short treatise On Fire, Theophrastus distinguished heavenly fire from terrestrial fire, which is always mixed with other elements, and pointed out that, in contrast to the other three elements, terrestrial fire can be generated artificially and constantly requires refuelling. Most importantly, Theophrastus postulated that fire, or heat, is active while the other three elements are passive In fact, this Theophrastean view has been interpreted as a serious departure from Aristotle s physics, according to which hot and cold are active while moist and dry are passive.
Against this interpretation, however, it has been remarked that, since the Aristotelian biology postulates only the hot as active, Theophrastus did nothing but extend Aristotle s view to physics in general see Longrigg Furthermore, although some scholars have presented the action of the hot as constituting for Theophrastus the reason for the interchanges between the elements, others have counterclaimed that these should be understood as qualitative and not just due to a mechanical mixture see Steinmetz ; Gottschalk Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, online.
His Greek edition of Theophrastus work on fire is one of the first Greek printings from the Royal Press ; the text first appeared in the monumental Greek of Aristotle s Opera printed by Aldus. At the age of twelve he was sent to Paris to study, and attracted great notice by his remarkable abilities. After having held the post of professor of belles-lettres at the University of Toulouse, he returned to Paris as professor, or Royal reader, of Greek at the College Royal in In he was entrusted with the printing of the Greek books at the Royal Press, in which he was assisted by his friend Guillaume Morel.

A particularly fine copy of the second edition of Joseph Hall s ferocious satire; one of the first works to appropriate the style of a genuine travel account for fictional purposes, beautifully illustrated with a series of fictional maps that incorporate real maps. The first latin edition was printed in Frankfurt, the English editions, presumably translated by Joseph Healy, in London in and again in or Like other travel accounts, it included a series of maps, including a world map that situated this newly described territory in relation to known places.
Hall s elaborate descriptions of such locales as Tenter-Belly with its provinces of Eat-allia also known as Gluttonia and Drink-allia are pure farce, drawing strength from resemblances to medieval and contemporary travel accounts by such authorities as Mandeville, Peter Martyr, and Ralegh. Hall s satirical story tells of the adventures of a lone European voyager Mercurius Britannicus, who travels on the appropriately named ship Fancie to Terra Australis and spends 30 years there.
Oh no, there's been an error
The southern world discovered is divided into four parts, with the names of: Crapulia Tenter-belly in the English adaptation , which borders the Indian Ocean and contains the provinces of Pamphagonia Gluttonia and Yvronia Drinkallia , a place where to be a leader one must be obese; Viraginia Sheelandt a lawless republic of only women; Moronia Foolania , a land of fools and folly - including religious folly; and Lavernia Theevingen , home to criminals and crime.
In its Latin original Mundus alter et idem featured five engraved folding maps, one showing the four regions of the southern continent as almost touching South America, Africa and Asia. Hall wrote the work for private circulation, and did not intend it for publication. It was not clearly ascribed to Hall by name until , when Thomas Hyde, the librarian of the Bodleian, identified "Mercurius Britannicus" with Joseph Hall.
On the other hand Hall's authorship was an open secret, and in John Milton used it to attack Hall by arguing that the Utopia and New Atlantis had a constructive approach lacking in Mundus Alter. Joseph Hall , Bishop of Norwich, poet, moralist, satirist, controversialist against Milton, i.

First edition, with a fine Bloomsbury Group provenance, presented by Lytton Strachey to Frances Marshall [later Frances Partridge upon marriage], with a notation of the presentation in the latter's hand "Frances Marshall from Lytton " in pencil on the front free endpaper. At the time of the presentation, Frances was the lover of Ralph Partridge, who lived with Strachey in his country house, Ham Spray.
In a complicated web of unhappy relationships typical of the Bloomsbury Group, Strachey loved Ralph Partridge, who in turn had rejected him and married Dora Carrington, who in turn had loved and been rejected by Strachey. The year following the presentation, Strachey died, Carrington committed suicide in despair, and the next year Ralph and Frances married. The Age of Louis XIV ranks among Voltaire's greatest historical works, and was an important step in the development of historical writing, merging political and social history by including art, culture, and literature alongside the monarch and his ministers.
Voltaire first mentioned the work in a letter of , predicting it may take ten years, but it in fact took almost two decades to complete. A section of the work was published in Paris in , but was suppressed by the authorities, and it was for this reason that Voltaire chose to publish the full work in Berlin, under the protection and encouragement of Frederick the Great, who indeed had it printed by his printer C. Voltaire used the pseudonym of M. Strachey "devoted several essays to Voltaire and hung a portrait of him by Jean Huber over his desk, where it dominated his study" Cronk, Cambridge Companion to Voltaire, p.
Indeed, Strachey's book Landmarks in French Literature has three chapters on Voltaire, and in the fourth chapter, "The Age of Louis XIV", he follows the same interpretation Voltaire espoused in , namely, that under the Sun King "it was as if the whole nation had burst into splendid flower". Strachey's presentation of these Voltaire volumes to Frances Marshall was consequently a considered gift, yet also reflected the Bloomsbury Group's fascination with the writer: Clive Bell, in his notorious essay Civilisation , declared the age of Louis XIV leading on to the time of Voltaire as one of only three truly civilized eras of human history, Leonard Woolf took 70 volumes of Voltaire with him when he travelled to Ceylon, and Virginia Woolf called Voltaire's Candide " little pages which we shall remember for the rest of our lives".

About this Item: Berlin, Haude and Spener, Reinhard went to the University of Halle, but returned to his home town when his father died in He then became a secretary to the Herzogliche Justizkanzlei in Neu-Strelitz. Although his main occupation was law, he published on a broad range of mostly philosophical topics. He also acquired some command of the English language, which was still unusual at this time.
In , he became Justizrat in Neu-Strelitz, a high position in the judiciary. The duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin appointed him judge at the Reichskammergericht the highest court of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation in Wetzlar and thereby ennobled him. Dissatisfied with Wolffianism, he was attracted by the philosophy of Christian August Crusius. Reinhard s work carries a preface by Johann Heinrich Samuel Formey. Born in Berlin, Formey was the son of immigrant Huguenots. In , Formey was named a member of the Academy of Berlin, and in its perpetual secretary, at a time when the language between the Academy s scientists was changed from Latin to French.
Between and , successive publishers in The Hague brought out the six volumes of Formey s La belle Wolffienne, which was his effort to explain the philosophy of Christian Wolff to women.
