The work is illustated by many diagrams and drawings made with ink along the text.
Calligraphic text with cursive writing in red ink, black and gold in a frame of double red nets, frontispiece on double p. Binding and paper make it possible to date this manuscript of the second half of the eighteenth century. The cursive calligraphy used by the script is very neat and finely executed, with three inks: black, red and gold, the last shade having turned green with time. The book is divided into six chapters, of 15, 21 and 23 lines, on the virtue of the prayer on the Prophet Mohammad. The titles of each chapter are written in red ink or gold, followed by the "Bismillah" sentence placed at the beginning of the suras of the Koran, meaning "In the name of God" in a larger calligraphy.
The manuscript begins with the last four suras of the Qur'an, the Amsa al-Hsnat, followed by an introduction and a prayer. A superb frontispiece on double page adorns pages 5 and 6, executed in black ink on a red background in polychrome frames. The one on the right, decorated with five arches in the margins, gives the name of Allah, the Prophet and his four caliphs; the one on the left indicates the name of the manuscript and its author "Abi Abdallah Hashim ibn Abdulaziz al-Mohammadi al-Shafei".
The first colophon, giving the end of the first chapter, is calligraphed in red ink in a banner. The other three colophons, executed in a serrated triangle, announce the end of each chapter and repeat the name of the author. The text ends with the poem "Qasida", to the glory of the Prophet. The analysis of the document and the use of the term "Shafei" suggests that its author was probably one of the imams of the school of jurisprudence of Sunni Islam "Shafiism", one of four schools madhhab of jurisprudence of Sunni Islam, based on the teaching of Imam Al-Shafii and his followers.

Scarce copy of this popular geographical work consisting of a medieval collection of geography, astronomy and other physical sciences, a text that has circulated in the form of verse and prose since the 13th century. The work is attributed to Gautier de Metz, French poet and priest who produced it around , based on the Medieval Latin text "Imago mundi" by Honorius Inclusus.
Gautier's poem is one of the many "encyclopedic" medieval works that describe creation, geography and astronomy with factual and imaginary passages. Monsters, treasures and distant lands are evoked in this pseudo-scientific poem, which has been translated into several languages during the Middle Ages, and beautifully illustrated in numerous manuscripts.
The poem "Mappemonde", attributed to Gautier de Metz, was probably transformed into prose by Maistre Gossouin in This edition reproduces that of due Cailant, but with some additions at the end. A similar copy is present in the collections of the NY public library.

According to Murray, this is the only known copy of this edition. Ferdinand Columbus , son of the discoverer of the New World, accompanied his father during his fourth voyage to America between After his death, he returned to Spain, then traveled all over Europe and set up a library of more than 15, books.
He seems to have had a particular interest for the editions of the Image du Monde. This book, and others such as Imago Mundi by Pierre d'Ailly, inspired his father's first discovery plans. Ferdinand's library was entrusted to the library of St. Paul's Cathedral in Seville. During the 16th and 17th centuries the library, like other Renaissance libraries, was neglected. Thus, when the library was inventoried in , its contents had decreased to volumes. The books of the Ferdinand Columbus Library are extremely rare on the market.

The "Barbary corsairs" of the Mediterranean represented a real scourge for maritime traffic until the 19th century, capturing thousands of ships, attacking coastal towns and supplying slave traffic with captured crews.
Although the attacks of the Barbary pirates peaked in the early mid-seventeenth century, they remained in the middle of the 18th century a constant threat to maritime traffic. Thus, the French, Spanish and Italian fleets still regularly carry out retaliation or diplomacy missions to local rulers of Algiers, Tunis and Tripoli, sponsors or accomplices of privateers of the North African coasts. In this memoire, King Louis XV sets the framework for a mission sent to the Pasha of Tripoli in April to stop attacks and looting of French ships.
hot rods roadsters coupes customs idea book Manual
Following the bombing of Tripoli by the French in July against the city of Tripoli, the Treaty of 9 June is supposed to protect French ships from the acts of piracy of Tripolitans. However, for the past three years, the corsairs of Tripoli have engaged in aggression and looting against French ships and crews: "All the French captains who had the misfortune to meet at sea corsairs of Tripoli were exposed to be removed all their effects and provisions which were in the propriety of these corsairs, and to be abused, some even received the bastarding at the risk of their life, and it was not possible to give up the navigation to the violence of the Tripolitans any longer ".
Despite various diplomatic actions, these acts of piracy have not ceased. King Louis XV therefore decided to send a squadron in front of Tripoli to get Pacha the restoration of the treaty, financial compensation and the punishment of corsairs having been identified. Before the arrival of this fleet, the captain of Revest is sent to deliver to the Pacha the King's courier detailing the damage caused by the corsairs and the requirements of the French sovereign. The King requires the Pasha to punish those suffering the same treatment they have done to the French, to have all the French captains compensated for the looting done to them, and to effectively prevent their safety for the future, by adding to the treaty of an article that barely pronounced death against the "Rais" who will dare to plunder or insult a French ship in any way whatsoever ".
The king also demands "the heads of the principal culprits, namely of a French renegade named Sicard, who is the author of thieves of the Tripolitans" and he adds to his letter to the Pacha the list of "Rais" to be punished. In addition, he sets the amount of the required indemnity at between 5 and 6, sequins. And so that his demands are satisfied, the king specifies that "the captain de Revest will not hide from the Pasha that he must be immediately followed by several vessels of strength designed to support the just pretensions of his majesty SL, Half sheep of the time, paper on board with floral motifs and morocco reinforcements and wooden pegs: homemade binding made on board a ship using available materials, including fragments of nautical charts and handwritten navigation notes.
Amazing handwritten instruction manual of a French naval officer, made and bound on board a ship at the beginning of the American Revolutionary War, and used and completed during his career. In , the French navy was fully engaged in the North American conflict in which it played a decisive role facing the British fleet. Its power is based on ships and modern artillery and on the quality of the training of its officers and crew. This handbook, an astonishing original document of which we have found no equivalents, brings together the sum of the technical, practical and scientific knowledge that an officer of the "Royale" had to acquire: astronomy, mathematics, tides, cartography, latitude and longitude, use of the compass and navigation instruments Its owner, who indicates on the title his initials and his rank: "Sieur P Also, its appearance and the materials used for its manufacture reveal the work of a sailboat or shoemaker rather than a bookbinder!
The book is abundantly illustrated with hundreds of drawings and shems, most watercolored, including 22 at full-page, plus 6 folding plates, all perfectly drawn: astronomical diagrams, diagrams, instruments including a superb armillary sphere and 3 maps, including 2 of Brest area and 1 of the Mediterranean. The writing of the set, very legible, is by the same hand and chapter headers are mostly decorated. The list of the officer's student names indicates the places of their birth. There are some names of families of sailors known as "La Touche", "Audibert" Precious maritime document of great historical interest, original object unique in its kind in its design and realization.
Derniers embarquements. Mai Novembre Jaubert et de ses camarades sur les pontons de Plymouth, et dans la terrible prison de Dartmoor. Bonne orthographe. Style et orthographe corrects. Sagit-il du commandant Roger, commandant le Ponton Le Caton? Chomel , avec notes de Louis Garneray, Paris, Nepveu, Nouveaux embarquements. Mai novembre Original Velum binding.
A precious personal "logbook" of a Marseilles sailor covering a period of forty years, recounting his successive embarkations to the trade and in the "Royale", from until his capture on November 3, , his detention on the pontoons and at the Dartmoor Prison until May 27, , and his last embarkations from June to November 5, document of considerable value for the knowledge of the maritime environment of the end of the 18th century, the heavy traffic in the Mediterranean and beyond, with first-hand accounts of the battles of Aboukir and Trafalgar and the lives of French sailors trapped on British pontoons.
The manuscript includes: Part One: From the first embarkation to Trafalgar ; Part two: Captivity on the pontoons and at Dartmoor ; Third part: freedom refound. Latest boarding. May November First part: from the first embarkation to Trafalgar : it includes 31 embarkations, with a text indicating, for each ship, the detailed account of the navigation and a watercolor representing it.
These navigations "to trade", all in the Mediterranean, except two in the Antilles, become from the 18th embarkation squadron sailing in the service of the King, the Republic, then the Emperor, whose first, after a fight against the English, ends with desertion and imprisonment. The reading of this picturesque and poignant document leaves the impression of a whole life devoted to action: Scarcely arrived and despite all the vicissitudes, Jaubert immediately seeks another ship, as if the ground burns his feet; attitude that is not unlike that of the illustrious Duguay Trouin.
The adventures experienced by Jaubert are innumerable: he finds himself a stowaway on an Italian brigantine; led the Pasha of Constantinople to Crete, the Grand Vizier of Crete to Constantinople, and Greek women from island to island; brings from Algiers to Marseille French slaves captured in Corfu; Loads of Calamata figs, oranges, butter, cheese and wax cattle Skyros?
This first part, hectic, ends in , after the 38th navigation, by incarceration "handcuffs and chain neck" Fort Saint-Nicolas of Marseille, then Toulon. It is illustrated with 31 watercolors, representing with remarkable precision the hulls and rigging of tartanes, boats, brigs, corvettes, bombards, chebecks, seneaux, vessels, brigantines, polacres, boulichous, frigates, schooners, etc It is therefore possible that Degun, talented watercolorist, detained himself on the Ganges, drew the ships that his companion of misfortune described him from preserved notes of his navigations.
The quality of these watercolors is close to the work of the portraitists of ships like "Roux" of Marseille. The variety of ships of all origins on which Jaubert resides constitutes a remarkable source of information on maritime traffic of the time in the Mediterranean, and actors: French, Italian, Spanish, Greek, Arab Jaubert also relates his enlistment on several ships of the "Royal", including the ship Scipio which participates in the Battle of Aboukir in figure the list of French squadron ships.
After various embarkations to trade, our sailor will join the French Navy in Jaubert is named gabier of hune on the ship The Formidable, armed with 80 guns, which leaves for Gibraltar to the Antilles, in the squadron of Admiral Villeneuve. His account relates various adventures of sea and gives the detail of the victorious military operations of the Admiral against the English in Martinique, then in Guadeloupe, as well as made catches. On the return from Guadeloupe, off the Azores, the ship "takes an English marching ship, a a corsair ditto with a catch of a Spanish merchant ship coming from India loaded with dry goods of the 'Indies and of eight million silver coins we took in tow and the same evening we burn the merchant ship taken English and the privateer who had made the Spanish catch End of June After taking part in the Cape Finisterre naval battle of July 22, , the Formidable October 20 leaves Cadiz and participates in the battle of Trafalgar October 21, which he manages to escape, despite many damage.
The story of the Battle of Trafalgar is extremely rich and provides details of both the course of action and the reasons for the success of the English fleet. It ends with the following remark: "I will not forget to tell you that before starting the last fight, General Dumanoir told us:" let's go and fight my children I will take you to a place where you will be well rested.
He was very right because I am in prison in my 9th year without knowing when I will come out. Thus, on the 3rd of November, Jaubert and all the crew of the Formidable were taken prisoner by the English, and conducted on the pontoon "The Generous" at Plymouth. Following are the detailed tables of the French, Spanish and English fleets with their armament.
In addition, an ink wash titled "The Formidable taken by the ship Namur November 4, " illustrates the story of the battle. This first part is of a playful style, popular, and without orthographic concern. It is obviously from Jaubert's hand. Part 2: Captivity on the pontoons and Dartmoor The stories that follow relate to the conditions of J.
Jaubert and his comrades on the Plymouth Pontoons and in the terrible Dartmoor Prison. They are illustrated with 3 gouaches representing, first, the three pontoons where Jean Jaubert was a prisoner "The pontoon the generous Captain Lanyon Remained 9 months The pontoon the hector captain The thorn remained 65 months The pontoon the ganges captain the red remained for 27 months " , the second" the Neptune pontoon [The Neptune], Captain Lorence, ", and the last the" Dartmoor prison of war the 25 of May "or, at the foot of the page" the prison of French dartimor guarded by the commander Kotgrave ".
The style and the spelling being more chastised, it is probable that a companion assisted Jaubert in his writing. November 16, " , sometimes is the spokesperson of all the prisoners of the pontoons, in a classic style, and even literary, with an excellent spelling 2, 4, 5. He goes so far as to compose a poem on the extreme harshness of the conditions of detention 3 , and write a play rather a skit narrating the arrival of the English Roger perhaps the commander of the pontoon " The Cato " in Hell. This second part constitutes a precious sum of information on the conditions of detention and the life of the French sailors on the pontoons.
There are a number of stories about pontoons, sometimes written in a novelistic way, and for the most part published after , the oldest probably being "Sergeant Flavigny's story, or ten years of my captivity on the English pontoons" by L. Chomel , with notes by Louis Garneray, Paris, Nepveu, However, this journal is to our knowledge the only example of manuscript redirected by a prisoner on the spot: As on every ship, the sailors help each other and participate together in the meager distractions of the edge.
Jaubert knows how to tell, Degun draws for him; and a more educated fellow-prisoner writes for him when it is necessary to testify, from his own experience, of the general condition of the prisoners of the English pontoons. Third part: refound freedom. New embarkments. May - November These watercolors are distinguished by the absolute accuracy of the design of the rigging. None of them are signed. The document ends with the story of a quarantine due to the plague, it is likely that the sailor is succumbing to this epidemic Plague epidemic of , , which extended from the Middle East to the Maghreb.
The author, who rightly criticizes the surgeons who contested the epidemic, while the deaths of porter-faix dockers added to those of the sailors, suggests his role during this period: "On the 2nd, eve of St. Black card stock, photographs in transparent individual pockets. A collection of 33 original silver prints of the planet Mars taken by American spacecrafts Mariner 6, 7 and 9 between and Mars has attracted the attention of humanity.
In Mesopotamia, in China, they go back more than years. With the appearance of the first astronomical glasses, it is the details that we began to distinguish on the surface of the fourth planet of our solar system. Astronomers believe they see a world similar to the earth: Ice caps, continents, oceans, changing vegetation with the seasons At the end of the 19th century, the Italian Giovanni Virginio Shiaparelli distinguishes straight lines resembling canals and he mapped them in Continuing his work, the American Percival Lowel , defends the theory of artificial Martian channels.
Lowell was convinced of the existence of Martians fighting the drought and desertification of their planet. In the early s, these beliefs are outdated, however the scientific world still considers the possibility of a plant life on the red planet. The exploration missions of the American Mariner missions will revolutionize our knowledge of Mars.
The Mariner program is a series of NASA missions that aim to send spacecrafts to study the three inner planets of the solar system, the closest from the Earth. Ten spacecrafts, from Mariner 1 to Mariner 10, are launched between and as appropriate to Mars, Venus and Mercury. The present collection includes 5 photographs taken by Mariner 6, 7 by Mariner 7 and 21 by Mariner 9. On July 14 and 15, , Mariner 4 flew over Mars and made the first 22 images of the planet. These images put an end to many theories of the time by revealing a more lunar than terrestrial surface, no expanse of water and a weak atmosphere.
Launched on February 24, , Mariner 6 is the second mission to reach Mars. She managed to take 75 pictures of Mars during her flyover. Mariner 7, launched March 27, , closely followed Mariner 6, by fulfilling the same objectives. Despite technical problems during her trip, the spacecraft even provides more scientific data than her partner. Mariner 9 is launched on May 30, Its mission is to complete the studies and measurements made by the previous couple, while being the first spacecraft to orbit a planet other than Earth, allowing a long study mission. Mariner takes photos of the surface with surprising clarity, resolution reaching 1 kilometer.
Using her instruments UV, IR, IR radiometer and two cameras , she discovers striking elements of Martian geography such as Olympus Mons, the largest volcano in the solar system, and the huge canyon that will be named Valles Marineris, in honor of the success of the mission. She allowed to build the vertical profile of its atmosphere.
Mariner 9 also analyzed the two natural satellites of Mars, Phobos and Deimos. Our shots of Mariner 6 and 7 include views of the entire planet as well as images of the surface and its many impact craters. The ones of Mariner 9 reveals all of its geography: its mountain ranges, valleys, volcanoes, plains, poles On the back of each shot are printed: the date of the shooting, the name of the spaceship, the distance, the scale and a detailed description of the geographical area. Despite its aridity unveiled by these images, interest in the red planet has only grown for 50 years.
To the spaceships in orbit have succeeded the rovers exploring its surface, and now comes the concrete realization the project of a human exploration of Mars.

His solid knowledge of both the artillery and the navy has made him think several times about the ministry of the navy; but this nomination never succeeds. Appointed Inspector of Marine Artillery in , he ended his life on his land. His abilities enabled him to compose practical works of clear design and exposition, which for a long time were authoritative; he is also at the origin of the Academy of Marine formed definitively in , and of which he was the first director. The work is divided in two parts: the first deals with naval evolutions and the second general signals and orders by day, by night, by fog that a naval army must know and execute.
Impressed by the formalism of European naval tactics, the work is characteristic of the technical fights of the time. As a result of a desire for prudence, we wanted to avoid random overflow maneuvers. Attempts to concentrate on the opposing fleet are becoming increasingly rare, and rigidity of the line and discipline of fire is imposed.
The battles can be summed up in endless evolutions to take advantage of the wind, followed by a barren cannonade between two parallel lines. This formalism reigns especially in France since the treaty of of Father Hoste, but also in Spain and, to a lesser extent, in England.
It leads to a strategic deviation, the "non-battle" which contributes to developing the passivity of the officers. One of the rare copies printed on large paper, very fresh. Ecrit en Anglais par M.

The next day is a classic sprint so well, I would have taken the same wedgie by being in shape! I pass the line well white like a laundry all the same. I take day after day without thinking about the rest. Another race in classic as a good cross path then a new day of rest saving to join Italy. I'm still taking 2 small blue on the following races and I have no more ambitions in general. I have fallen down as much as a child skinny pulling up with a bazooka on the shoulder.
But there is still the final ascent of the alpe cermis. And There, go know why, despite very bad sensations to warm up, I find myself to slam what will forever be a priori We'll say what we want but Sharpen a little it has good!! The very unusual info of the day: ' ' more than years ago, the man possessed small keratin thorns on the penis.. See you next Monday! Retirement, which has changed: It's been 2 months since I took my international retirement and beyond the words, here's especially what it changed or not in my daily life When I look at myself in an ice cream, it doesn't seem so outrageous, yet the balance is formal, I'm doing beautiful and well 3 kg more than my usual maximum, I weigh soon as much as my size, called ' ' configuration Cube ' ' and so i sprayed my absolute record..
When I think this winter I'll be between 70 and 71 kg..

And this is more time and stress in less! Basically, after three experiences in this role I can officially say that being a witness is: - to manage to manage the kinks of the organization - being responsible in case of a problem - be official supplier of tissues for the bride - don't be able to fall asleep in the bottom of the church.. The very unusual info of the day: ' ' mosquitoes have 47 "teeth" pointed out on their cheat.. See you next Monday!! My unusual memories of career Junior World Championships. For The Generation, the second world junior in Sweden are our last before the passage to the court of the grands.
So much to say we're getting inflated to block.
Mortalité : pas d’effet bénéfique des consommations modérées
But nothing is going to happen as planned, finally almost.. Already, the staff has booked us a hotel eccentric from the city with the French Nordic Jumpers and combined, that is said more conducive to performance, but we, young teens in full hormone thrust, we see the promise of a Sunday evening Very sad evening, far from the other teams. Goodbye so, Scandinavian beauties and other creatures from our fantasies.. And then, the elements go against us.. Big missed at the waxing that compels us almost all to abandon on the 30 km skate already..
When you run with double hats and boxers and straps on nose and cheekbones and that the female winner runs in the sleeve, and Ben the ego takes a shot! We're suddenly ready for the next day relay! But Roddy Darragon declares package in the evening, thinking out of shape.. But I want him because I wanted to share this with him. A fall at the start makes him drop the group and unfortunately we are forced to run after the group the whole race. I AM 3th Torchbearer and can't wait to try to come back but at the time of removing my surchaud, my coach Christophe Deloche gets my hand on the shoulder and tells me "No, wait for the last moment", and I feel there of the Despair more than coaching, since my partner is still not in sight of the stadium..
He then squeeze my arm and asks me not to let the relay finish last. I'm going strong but I quickly realize that it's going to be hard since the spectators cross me on the skis to go encourage the first ones who cross me under a bridge. And here, coup de grace, I pass in front of a french technician, waiting for encouragement full of hope, when I receive a "come on, make yourself happy" translating the surrounding discomfort!
A sentence engraved in my memory from where a particular report with fun in cross-country skiing!! But we finish the work and let's finish proudly before last! A few big ass-dry vodka in the cabin to celebrate the eyes of the coaches and here we are again for our hotel full of joy, letting other nations have fun without us. Fortunately, we caught up with a title of European champion some weeks later and some good carousing with the swedes since too!! Thought of the day: I really liked Rafa Nadal between and may The very unusual info of the day: '' like the number of words invented by Shakespeare ' ' Franck Ribery still has a way Open the valves: At the time when you read these lines, we, with all my colleagues from the French ski team, are surely hurry up to wait, swim in the cold water, crawl in the mud, run in Rangers in A Swamp, dig tunnels, savor our combat rations, climb ramparts to the rope, fasting, walk to an finish line that does not exist, evolve in quincunx, sleep on the rhythm of a baby who takes the breast And who doesn't make it , we hide in the landscape like low prices in an altitude restaurant, wear heavy loads for the simple pleasure of moving them elsewhere each his pleasure , singing fake of military songs, gush at least "keep it up", slay the enemy, and obviously ' ' at the end ' ' connoisseurs will appreciate..
Save France! So you can relax, the situation is totally under control! In Short, we are at our traditional military acculturation internship in vannes and it's not a joke.. This internship should be my last after 12 years spent proudly wearing the colors of our French Army, so obviously there will be a little pinch in the heart.. Peu loquace, assez bougon, il intriguait beaucoup car on ne savait rien sur lui. Ce fut le cas, par exemple pour la Flora Agaricina Danica de Lange. Certain jour, il fallut bien. Faut-il rappeler l'histoire de N. Puis il dispersait ces pamphlets dans le monde entier et jusque en Chine.
Mais le piquant de l'affaire fut que N. Selon la loi, son modeste bien tomba dans les caisses de l'Etat. Pauvre N. Sans doute, est-ce la vie, qui, plus forte que tout, entend ne pas renoncer. On se doute que nous ne l'avions pas attendue. Je lui exposai donc que, vu l'objet de notre publication, il n'y avait pas l'ombre de raison de la suspendre. Je laissai.
