1 Golius, Jacob; Van Gool, Jacob Lexicon arabico-latinum, contextum ex probatioribus Orientis lexicographis. Accedit index latinus copiosissimus.
Leiden Bonaventura & Abraham Elzevier 1653 First Edition Vellum Fair with no dust jacket 
This is the first edition of Golius's Arabic-Latin dictionary, based on the Sihah of Al-Jauhari, called the "best of its kind" until the nineteenth century. The Lexicon is about 1500 pages, in double columns. It is a large heavy folio measuring 14.5" x 9.5", and 3.5" thick. Will require extra postage internationally. Pagination is [12], 16 pgs, 17-2922 columns, [40] pages.OCLC 312103043. Condition is fair antiquarian. It has the original blind stamped vellum covers which are worn and rubbed, edges lifting from the boards, spine has been repaired somewhat crudely many years ago and the repair has wear and repairs itself. Interior is clean but has consistent foxing throughout. Sewing is showing and the book is somewhat fragile, not surprising considering the great weight and pressure put on the cords with this enormous book. There are ownership marks relating to a Catholic school and one of the serving fathers from the early 20th century. The work is not only a ground-breaking piece of scholarship. It was actually printed by Jean and Daniel Elzevier but printed under their fathers' names as a tribute to them for such a "formidable work of typography." Golius (1596-1667) (Jacob Van Gool) was a mathematician and orientalist who had studied Arabic with Erpenius, whom he succeeded as professor of Arabic at Leiden University in 1625. He was later the chair of mathematics at the same university. Golius taught mathematics to the French philosopher René Descartes, and later corresponded with him. Golius's Lexicon Arabico-Latinum, was a big improvement on the Arabic-to-Latin dictionary of Franciscus Raphelengius, which was published at Leiden in 1613. Golius possessed mainstream medieval Arabic dictionaries written solely in Arabic, which he had collected on his extensive travels in the Middle East, and was able to translate their contents into Latin. ; Folio 13" - 23" tall; 1500 pages
