Buchbeschreibung Paris, Jeu de Paume / Ludion, 2003. Fol. , Halbleder. The Blue Box is done up like a handsome book, complete with a leather-bound spine and a bas-relief frontispiece that plays the painting-of-a window-within-a-window trick. Inside is a separate portfolio including eight reproductions each of the gouaches "The Pig`s Beer" and "Horse Preserve", printed on adhesive paper and meant to be stuck on to bottles just like the originals were. Also included is the hardback edition of Magritte, the catalogue for the Jeu de Paume exhibit (published by D.A.P. in spring 2003). Edited by Daniel Abadie. With Essays by Renilde Hammacher, Michel Butor, Patrick Roegiers, Jean Roudaut, Bernard Noël and Jean-Michel Goutier. Slipcased, 12 x 14.5 inc./ 304 pp. A very good copy (may missing some portfolio) Sprache: Französisch Gewicht in Gramm: 3550. Artikel-Nr. 14502

Buchbeschreibung Forbes 4569 (55-page issue); Streeter 3766 (55-page issue); cf. A.F. Lee, The Hawaii state constitution: a reference guide (1993), p. 5. The 56-page issue, plus index, of the first edition of Hawaii's last constitution as a sovereign country, containing 103 numbered articles. When in 1893 Queen Liliuokalani of Hawaii was overthrown, she was replaced by a provisional government consisting of members of the American Committee of Safety, striving to achieve annexation of Hawaii to the United States of America. When annexation was not forthcoming they set up a constitutional convention and adopted the present constitution for the Republic of Hawaii. The annexation was finally ratified four years later, the transfer of sovereignty taking place in August 1898. "The present constitution is among the more important pieces of literature pertinent to these times" (Streeter).Forbes notes that page 56 is unnumbered and blank ("[56] blank"), but in this copy it is numbered and contains the last names of the members of the constitutional convention. The present copy includes the 6-page index, often lacking.With a library stamp on front wrapper, the spine of the wrapper reinforced. A very good copy. Artikel-Nr. H6TGCND412W1

LUQMAN al-Hakim (notes by Thomas ERPENIUS).

Buchbeschreibung J.A. Lane, "Arent Corsz Hogenacker", in: Quaerendo XXV (1995), pp. 83-111, 163191, at p. 174; Smitskamp, Philologia orientalis 70; STCN (3 or 4 copies); for Luqman: A.F.L. Beeston et al., eds., Cambridge history of Arabic literature to the end of the Umayyad period (1983), pp. 378-381. Second edition, in the original Arabic with a Latin translation and notes by Thomas Erpenius (1584-1624), of the classic fables by Luqman (Lokman). Luqman "the greatest figure in the whole corpus of pre-Islamic myth and legend" (Cambridge history of Arabic literature, p. 378) is to Arabic what Aesop is to Greek, a real but much mythologized figure, said to have gathered his wisdom from observation of (and by some accounts conversation with) animals. Surat 31 of the Quran is named after him. Luqman's animal fables became an important part of pre-Islamic Arabic culture, were incorporated into early Islamic culture and remain popular today in both Western and Islamic culture. The fables are first given in Arabic, followed by a translation in Latin and Erpenius's notes. Erpenius, appointed professor of Arabic at Leiden University in 1613, set up a printing office for Arabic and other "oriental" languages and had Arabic type cut under his supervision by Arent Corsz. Hogenacker. He printed the first edition of Luqman's fables as his first trial publication, still without vowel points for the Arabic type. He annotated his own copy of the first edition extensively, and these revisions were incorporated into the present second edition, printed with vowel points. The present edition uses a new Arabic type, also by Hogenacker. The larger Arabic type (a single line on the title-page) was also new and this is almost its only use in the Netherlands. Some manuscript notes on the title-page and later owner's pencil notes in Arabic in margins and on final flyleaf. Lower outer corner torn off title-page, some marginal thumbing and waterstains and a few small wormholes. Otherwise in good condition. Definitive edition of Erpenius's seminal Luqman text, bringing the greatest Arabic fables to the Western World. Artikel-Nr. I339310GMJAP

Buchbeschreibung Borba de Moraes, p. 762; Nissen, BBI 1717; Stafleu & Cowan 10032. Rare series on Brazilian botany with 70 beautiful lithographed plates, published in 14 instalments by the French explorer, botanist and entomologist Auguste de Saint-Hilaire (1779-1853). Beginning with part 9 his two co-authors are named on the wrapper as well. After a journey of six years through Brazil (1816-1822), he brought home to France a vast collection of plants, mammals, birds and reptiles. There he dedicated himself to the publication of the results of his Brazilian journeys by working on several publications at the same time. The long journey and the pressure of work took their toll, however, and Saint-Hilaire fell ill. He was able to continue his work but not alone. Two respected colleagues, Adrien de Jussieu and Jacques Cambessèdes took over the largest part of the work. De Saint-Hilaire recovered to some degree and together they continued their work. A note in part 9 assures the readers and subscribers that the style and quality will not suffer from this change. Saint-Hilaire intended to issue 50 parts, but only these 14 were actually printed. Each instalment contains 5 plates with accompanying text. Some text leaves in the last 3 parts foxed, a tear in the back wrapper of one part and a marginal worm hole in the front wrapper and first leaf of another. In very good condition, with the bolts opened at the head, but wholly untrimmed. Artikel-Nr. 15113

Bosse, Hugo.

Buchbeschreibung This is certainly the largest, most detailed and comprehensive documentation of an interior design project on the grand scale we have ever come across. King Peter I of Serbia commissioned August Bosse, the owner of a Weimar company for interior design, to supply designs and estimates for the about 80 rooms in the Belgrade New Konak, the shell of which was completed about 1912. The building was damaged during both World Wars and was completely altered and the site serves now as Belgrade's town hall.The two enormous volumes come together with files containing hundreds of pages of duplicated typescript and manuscript pages of estimates and accosting, detailing the stucco, painting, carpentry, etc. work, as well as a stack of 36 half-plate glass negatives, tanned leather samples for upholstery or wall hangings and six blueprints of the plans of the building, lettered in Serbian and with German annotations in crayon. Included is as well a hand-written account of the project by the colleague and wife of the designer August Bosse, Else Bosse (1877-1965), written in 1947, from which we translated the most relevant passages. NOTES King Peter I of Serbia commisioned an aide to visited several noble families in Germany. Because of the construction of a new castle in Belgrade he was interested in interior design. During his travels in Silesia and Turingia he saw interiors which impressed him and came across the name of the Weimar company Bosse. We are lucky to have an account of the history of the project through a memoir by Bosse's wife included with the designs: 'We were encouraged by an agent to participate in working on the design plans. Hugo went there and visited the half-finished building and discussed the project with the court architect. The rooms were to to be furnished in French styles and in the highest quality. It was a big task; about 80 rooms. Hugo loved the challenge; however, he mistrusted the matter a bit, because Belgrade had left with him a discomforting impression. He thought that such a lavish building would not be in harmony with the bad roads with deep potholes and modest houses On top of that the war [of the Ottoman Empire] with Serbia broke out in 1912, which made Hugo wait and see. He wanted to see the outcome of the war and if King Peter would still be able to have his plans carried out. In spring of 1913 the architect came to the court of Weimar, in order to see the progress of the plans. The king had already asked for a prospectus. We had to console him and promised, to resume work on the plan immediately. The war had ended favourably for Serbia. With full steam we went ahead with the work. At that time we had three daughtsmen in the studio, and in addition we involved architects from outside who participated in the execution of the designs. We established a system, according to which the drawings where all of the same size, in watercolour or pencil, so that the different walls and views were depicted in a similar way. Many a night hour was devoted to this work, as it was most quiet then. Hugo got himself a Parlograph [a recording device] The other day the young girl would listen to the recordings with headphones and type [what Hugo had dictated] Although we had married during the art nouveau period, we had always had an affinity to classical styles. Hugo introduced me to this world and we accquired many beautiful works on these styles which we studied together. It was beautiful to be creative together Both of us determined the styles for the different rooms; I prepared and executed the details. We had to harmonize the woodwork with the textiles and carpets etc. We were pleased with the success, as much as the king was impressed. [After having submitted the designs to the king in Belgrade], the king had a look at the concepts and talked in German with Hugo. He decided on materials for the various rooms and expressed his ideas and wishes. A big book with watercolours was made, in a dignifying pigskin. Artikel-Nr. 37440AB
