Description

The majority of pages are undamaged with some creasing or tearing, and pencil underlining of text, but this is minimal. The fourth gave him dominion over the jinn, and was inscribed “There is no G OD but G OD, and Muhammad is His messenger.

Ma Lorenz è in grado di trasmettere la sua voglia, e la sua conoscenza con entusiasmo, mantenendo-al contempo- sempre un tono umile, semplice, in grado di catturare chiunque.The Arabs made many such terms especially popular, but just the names Seal of Solomon and Shield of David, which are often used interchangeably for the two emblems, go back to pre-Islamic Jewish magic. Ma tratta anche le abitudini sociali degli animali: il loro comportamento "in famiglia", in amore e come comunicano tra di loro, attraverso gesti e espressioni che si possono interpretare e comprendere.

Charmingly illustrated by Lorenz himself, King Solomon's Ring is a wonderfully written introduction to the world of our furred and feathered friends, a world which often provides an uncanny resemblance to our own. Ed è stupendo vederlo nuotare nel Danubio con cani al seguito, si riesce ad assaporare insieme a lui il tepore di un bel mattino soleggiato o il vento di una giornata d'autunno. A typical sentence: "A large Nemestrinus monkey bursting with energy, owned by my friend, the late Count Thun-Hohenstein, possessed, even when adult, a deeply rooted respect for an ancient Javanese monkey half of his size who had tyrannized him in the days of his youth.

The English title refers to the legendary Seal of Solomon, a ring that supposedly gave King Solomon the power to speak to animals. King Solomon's Ring is a general-audience zoological book, written by Austrian scientist Konrad Lorenz in 1949. Se siete anche solo un po' più sensibili di me nei confronti degli animali è un libro interessantissimo. Solomon, the legend goes, had a magic ring which enabled him to speak to the animals in their own language. Due to the proverbial wisdom of Solomon, it came to be seen as an amulet or talisman, or a symbol or character in medieval magic and Renaissance magic, occultism, and alchemy.

Another fragment, said the abbot, had been presented to Emperor Tazlovoo of Atlantis, and another to King Solomon. Aún así hablo con algunas especies, a las que conozco bien, y no necesito para ello ningún anillo encantado.

Un bellissimo atto d'amore verso il mondo animale, accessibile a chiunque e non solo ai naturalisti.

The ring was made from brass and iron, and the two parts were used to seal written commands to good and evil spirits, respectively. It is still an entertaining book; but not by any stretch of the imagination the scientific giant I expected to meet. L’illuminazione mi è venuta da un lupo: non per ricevere un altro schiaffo devi offrire al nemico l’altra guancia, no, devi offrirgliela proprio per impedirgli di dartelo! With each step ahead and every moment experienced, I feel more and more comfort, security and a clearer sense of direction. Although this isn't exactly a page-turner I really enjoyed learning everything this book had to offer.

Lorenz fu un osservatore privilegiato, un uomo di indole pigra e felice che visse in completa comunione con gli animali e con la natura. E anche dopo molti anni, il maschio continua ad imboccare la femmina “con gli stessi toni sommessi, tremuli di contenuta eccitazione, quegli accenti amorosi che le aveva rivolto nella primavera del loro amore” e lei a starsene ferma minuti interi a “pettinare le meravigliose, lunghe, morbidissime penne dello sposo che le offre voluttuosamente il collo con gli occhi semichiusi e le piume sul capo più arruffate che mai”.L'anello di Re Salomone è un libro che non dovrebbe mancare nella biblioteca di una persona che, oltre ad amare la lettura, ama anche gli animali. Seller has stated it will dispatch the item within 1 working day upon receipt of cleared payment - opens in a new window or tab . Memes have been circulated online that use the seal to portray the digital world, computers and the internet as inhabited by ''jinn'' ( demons). An ancient and mystical symbol that holds meaning for Jews, Christians and Muslims, the Seal of Solomon is believed to be based on the signet ring that was worn by the Biblical King Solomon. Non ha scatenato in me alcun interesse per la materia, trovando molto noiose le descrizioni del comportamento degli animali e le sue stesse considerazioni personali, poco interessanti e a tratti riconducibili a quello che era il modo di pensare di quel periodo.
