16 volume set. Published 1776-1791, also includes appendix volume published in by Treuttel and Wurtz, 1814. Bound in contemporary French mottled calf. 25 x 20 cm. All edges stained red. 153 plates and tables. Clean, unmarked pages. Marbled end pages. Blind stamp on title page. Memoires concernat les Chinois was an important source for introducing China to Europeans and the foundation of French Sinology. It collected the reports of French and Chinese missionaries in Beijing, "considered at the time the chief source of information in Europe regarding China and its people . Among the monographs, the most interesting are on language and literature, warfare and philosophy, including a complete life of Confucius. In addition, there are studies on natural history, science, architecture and agriculture, translations of Chinese poetry and biographical sketches of famous Chinese. This is undoubtedly the best work that the Jesuits have published on China" - Western Travellers in China. Jean Joseph Marie Amiot, the principle author, was in China from 1740 on, and was a confidante of the Emperor Quianlong. Significantly, the work helped introduce the philosophy of Confucius to the west (volume 12 is the most complete work on the life of Confucius published up to that point in Europe) and also contained 18 pictures of Confucius. Amiot drew the pictures of Confucius based on Ming-era icons, modified to reflect contemporary western Christian religious iconography. (See Chao Ying.) The work includes sections on many aspects of Chinese life including music, warfare, etc. Volume 7 is a reprint of Amiot's Art militaire des Chinois (published in 1772), the first translation into a European language of the Sun Tzu's Art of War.

4to (276 x 205 mm), ff [1] 83, with equations and diagrams in text; in very good condition, in contemporary buckram, labelled in gilt on spine.First edition, a unique typescript of Gabor's MIT lectures on information and communication theory, including an extended discussion of the use of light waves in holography, for which Gabor was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1971. Gabor's discovery and development of holography comes directly from his work on information 'contained' in wave forms. The realization of holography had to await the invention of lasers in 1960 as a source for coherent light, but from 1947 on Gabor had already established all of the principles of holography and demonstrated it using conventional light sources.The Lectures open with a mathematical theory of signal analysis and representation. Gabor discusses Shannon's and Weiner's theories of information, the entropy of noise, principles and theories of information encoding, and the limitations of Shannon's theory. This is followed by a physical theory of signals, including the fundamental limitations of signal transmission and recognition in the light of classical and quantum physics. From page 46 on Gabor examines information theory in regard to light waves, and sets out the foundations of the theory of holography based upon the interference of coherent light beams. The work concludes with an examination of speech analysis and compression.Besides his foundation work on holography, the Lectures cover other fundamental discoveries of Gabor in the fields of information storage and retrieval, such as granular synthesis and time-frequency analysis.Dennis Gabor (1900-1979) was a Hungarian physicist who fled Nazi Germany in 1933 and came to Britain where he did all his major research. See DSB 17 pp 324-8.This typescript appears to be unique.

Collection of revised ornithological offprints from Comptes rendus (a French scientific journal published since 1666), by Charles Lucien Bonaparte, a well-known ornithologist and nephew of Napoleon. Included are taxonomic classifications of various birds, including pigeons, herons, galliformes (gamefowl) and ostriches, birds found in the collections of various museums in the Netherlands, Belgium and the Marquesas Islands, and also a review of George Robert Gray's Genera and subgenera of birds (1855). Apparently several similar collections were published, containing various articles by Bonaparte from the Comptes rendus.Some foxing near the edges, otherwise a good copy.l Ronsil 294; Zimmer, pp. 72-77.

Two offprints discussing the researches of the French ethnographer Eugène de Froberville (1790-1871) in Mauritius on the languages and races of sub-equatorial East African, the first one published in Mauritius. The first is especially interesting, because it is an account of a lecture De Froberville gave at the Royal Society of Arts and Sciences of Mauritius, apparently on 8 February 1844, and his lecture does not appear to have been published on its own. The present account, comprising primarily long quotations from De Froberville's lecture (including an 11-page comparative table of East African languages), may therefore be the best record of his lecture.Bound before the offprints is a signed autograph letter from De Froberville, written in Port Louis, Mauritius, on 7 August 1846. It does not name the person he is addressing, but it seems likely to have been sent to Louis Bouton concerning his publication of De Froberville's lecture. A signed autograph note by Bouton on the first page of the 1846 offprint identifies him as the author of the parts that are not directly quoted from De Froberville.With the second offprint foxed, but both otherwise in very good condition. A rare record of early French research into East African languages.l Ad 1: WorldCat (1 copy, as issued in the proceedings); ad 2: Cohen, French encounter with Africans, p. 242 & note 86 on pp. 340-341; for De Froberville�s work in Mauritius: Vaughan, Creating the Creole Island: slavery in eighteenth-century Mauritius (2005), p. 267.

Since its publication in 1996, The Oxford Companion to Archaeology has firmly established itself as the standard reference work in the field of archaeology, selling nearly 15,000 copies to date and remaining a favorite among students, scholars, and anyone interested in archaeology. In 700 entries, the second edition provides thorough coverage to historical archaeology, the development of archaeology as a field of study, and the ways the discipline works to explain the past. In addition to these theoretical entries, other entries describe the major excavations, discoveries, and innovations, from the discovery of the cave paintings at Lascaux to the deciphering of Egyptian hieroglyphics and the use of luminescence dating. Much has changed in the field since 1996. Recent developments in methods and analytical techniques (e.g., laser-based mapping and survey systems, new applications of the scanning electron microscope) have revolutionized the ways excavations are performed. Cultural tourism, cultural resource management, heritage, and conservation have been redefined as areas within archaeology, and have had new emphasis given them by scholars and administrators. Major new sites have expanded our understanding of prehistory and human developments through time. The second edition explores each of these advances in the field, adding approximately 200 entries and exanding the total work to three volumes. Neil Asher Silberman, a renowned practicing archaeologist, author, and scholar, and a board member for the first edition, is the editor in chief. In addition to significant expansion, first-edition entries have been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the progress that has been made in the last decade and a half.

X, 31, [1 blank], [1], [1 blank] pp.First edition of a work on the so-called "White Lady", a painting on a rock face near the foot of Brandberg mountain in Namibia, written by the French archaeologist Abbé Henri �douard Prosper Breuil (1877-1961), with a presentation inscription to his collaborator Mary Boyle. The present copy is one of the 100 signed copies (no. 90) on rag paper. The rock painting was excavated in 1918 by Reinhard Maack and is today believed to have been made around 2000 years ago. The present text deals with the presumed origin of the painting and the researchers' excavation methods. It is usually assumed that the painting shows some sort of ritual dance, and that the "White Lady" is a (male) shaman, but the painting has long been an archaeological dilemma. It was Breuil who coined the name "White Lady" and suggested a relation to paintings at Knossos (Crete). The coloured plates show the entire "White Lady" as well as details, followed by photos of the researchers and the rock painting.With on the half-title a presentation inscription by the author to Mary Boyle his life-long companion, who collaborated in the writing and publication of the book. Today, her technically competent translations, her contemporary monographs as well as hundreds of her coloured petroglyph and rock art drawings are recognised as foundational to modern rock art research. A few faint stains, otherwise in very good condition.

  • Publisher: Tipografia de Archivos
Madrid: Tipografia de Archivos. 1935. An elaborate volume on the prehistoric cave paintings of Altamira, updating a 1906 edition by Breuil and Emile Cartailhac. Large quarto with 52 plates, both black & white photographs and full color plates reproducing Breuil's original drawings of the animals in the Altamira frescoes. A number of the color plates are double pages; all are protected with tissue guards. The caves at Altamira were discovered in the 1870s and were the first caves to be found that contained prehistoric artworks. Their Spanish discoverers were ridiculed for claiming that the paintings belonged to people of the Upper Paleolithic era, and it wasn't until decades later, after numerous other such caves had been found around Europe, that this became a generally recognized truth. Breuil, a French archeologist, visited the site and made drawings of a number of the animals depicted on the cave walls for the 1906 monograph -- notably in particular a species of bison that had been extinct in Spain for thousands of years; three decades later he updated and expanded his work, taking advantage of increased access to the cave and newly available lighting. The present volume has more plates than the earlier one, and all of the earlier images have been updated and improved. The discovery of the caves at Altamira was one of the most significant archeological discoveries of the 19th century, changing forever our understanding of our human forebears. This volume was produced during the Spanish Second Republic, the relatively brief period of liberal democracy preceding the Spanish Civil War and the subsequent forty years of fascist rule. A beautiful book in very good condition, three quarter bound in leather and attractively and elaborately printed. Unless otherwise noted, our first editions are first printings. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good.

12.5 x 14.5 inches. cloth, dust jackets, slipcase. 550; 434 pages. 2 volumes. Acclaimed by Samuel Johnson as "a performance which no age or nation could hope to equal," Alexander Pope's translation of the Iliad and Odyssey stands as one of the glories of English Literature. The Chester River Press edition of the Iliad and Odyssey of Homer has been designed and printed to reflect the epic proportions of this famous translation and offers both the Greek and English translations for the general reader and scholar alike. More than 50 color drawings in Greek vase styles by Avery Lawrence were commissioned by the Press. Each drawing portrays a specific scene from each of the 48 books making up the Iliad and Odyssey with smaller medallions adorning pages throughout. An original two-part Introduction by the esteemed Pope scholar, Steven Shankman, reflects on and investigates Pope's majestic poems through a scholarly lens focused on the timless Homeric themes of war and peace. Professor Shankman also elaborates on "How To Read Homer," an aid to understanding the philosophical and historical context of the Homeric epics. The Iliad and Odyssey are presented as a companion, slipcased set and bound in black Dutch cloth with dust jackets.
