London: Henry Colburn, 1826. First edition in English. Hardcover. Very good. Three volumes. 12mo. xxvii,(1),264;(2),274;(2),249(1),6pp. (Includes 6 page publisher's catalogue at end of Volume 3). Original drab paper boards, paper spine labels. Spines and labels worn and chipped, else a very good copy; the text pages are untrimmed. The first edition in English of Joseph von Hammer-Purgstall's edition of the Arabian Nights. He was an Austrian Orientalist who served in the Levant. One of his early commissions in Constantinople was to seek out a manuscript copy of the Nights, but failed. Later, in Egypt, he apparently succeeded. This was the first manuscript discovered which had the ending in which Shahriyar repents of executing Sheherazade. The manuscript and his translation into French have been lost, but a German version survives and is the basis for this translation into English.

Edinburgh: Oliver & Boyd, 1818. Hardcover. Very good. 12mo. 108pp. Publishers original drab brown cloth; upper board blocked in gilt with title within a floral design. Ink name on front pastedown. Cloth soiled, binding lightly shaken, gilt rubbed else a very good copy. The date of publication is taken from the Advertisement, page 4. This seems to be the first Oliver and Boyd printing of a hieroglyphic Bible and the second Edinburgh printing after the Doig and Sterling edition of 1814. The accepted publicaton date for this Bible is 1818; three other known copies are known to have been issued either in quarter leather and marbled paper boards, or in printed card covers. Our copy is in what is clearly publisher's cloth with gilt blocked on the upper board. This combination is unknown before 1826. It is likely, then, that the textblock, while printed earlier, was bound after 1826. Exceedingly scarce. Protected in a custom clamshell box.
