        A Discourse upon the Meanes of wel governing and maintaining in good Peace, a Kingdome, or other Principalitie.

      London: printed by Adam Islip,, 1602. Divided into three parts, namely, The Counsell, the Religion, and the Policie, which a Prince ought to hold and follow. Against Nicholas Machiavell the Florentine. Translated into English by Simon Patericke. Folio (269 x 182 mm). Contemporary calf, neatly rebacked to style, red morocco label to spine, raised bands and boards ruled in gilt, centrepieces stamped in blind to boards, edges speckled green, later endpapers. Bound without initial and final blanks, with two final leaves bearing "A table of the Maximes". Early inscription to title page. Extremities lightly rubbed, a few chips and marks to boards, hinges gently cracked but very firm, some infrequent dampstaining to upper margins and a small tear to lower margin of leaf G5, otherwise a very good copy. First edition in English of the work popularly known as Antimachiavel, a translation of Discours sur les moyens de bien gouverner et maintenir en bonne paix un royaume ou autre principauté (1576). Despite being widely discussed in Elizabethan and Jacobean England, Machiavelli's Il principe was not published in a complete English translation until 1640, a remarkable delay partly explained by the existence of Patericke's translation which cited enough of Machiavelli's original to serve as a substitute for it.

A Swedish guide to home remedies for all imaginable illnesses, injuries and complaints, with very brief sections on various body parts and organs, and on various ailments.

The Count was also patron to Johannes Kankel, who established the first printing office in Visingsborg ca. 1667, for he calls it the Count's printing office in the imprint of the present book. The inking is inconsistent. With extensive annotations in the margins and endleaves, at least one arly owner's name, and a later armorial bookplate. Somewhat browned and with some marginal stains. Binding rubbed and dirty. A good copy of a very rare guide to household pharmacology and medicine, especially interesting as a thoroughly local production (author, patron, library and printer).

      Strassburg, L. Zetzner, 1602. Folio (31.9 x 21.0 cm). [vi (of 12)]; 1-721, [xxiv (indexes)], [ii (blank)], 1-303, [viii]. With over 200 large, hand-coloured wood-engravings in the text. Contemporary full embossed calf. Spine with five raised bands, blind embossed floral patterns, gilt title and date. Brass clasps and hasps.l A copy in fine, accurate, contemporary colouring of one of the rarest and least-known German "Kräuterbücher". The basis of this work was laid by the German polymath Walther Hermann Ryff (ca. 1500-pre 1562), and this first subsequent edition was much expanded and updated by the German medical doctor Nikolaus Ager, or Acker (1568-1634). "Ager studied medicine in Basel and became a medical doctor in Strasbourg, where he worked as a canon at St. Thomas Church ... As a professor of medicine and botany (1618), he described some new plants" (deutsche-bibliographie.de) Nissen BBI (1707) mentions only an earlier, much smaller Ryff edition (1573; 422 pp.). OCLC records 21 copies, worldwide, but none seem to be hand-coloured. The first, and largest part contains the description of many plants and discusses their medical use. The second part is a systematical arrangement of plant parts, such as leaves, berries, fruits, etc., are collected in "grades". It also includes descriptions of newly discovered exotic plants, including coffee and tobacco. The third part deals with pills; their names, contents, and manufacturing processes. The pagination of the third part starts anew. As usual some defects due to age and use: Lacking the title page and prelininary pages up to the contents page. Old library stamp of a Brno school on the front free endpaper and content page lower margin; outer margin of a few leaves dampstained, but mostly clean, a few small wormholes in the inner margin of a few leaves, some marginal paper repairs, and some marginal paper loss to the index leaves of the third part. Plant names in and old hand added next to the figures. Upper clasp brass cover missing. Otherwise a very good copy, with strong imprints and neat, detailed hand-colouring. Not in Nissen BBI; not in Stafleu and Cowan.

The Northern Lyon, or Lyon of the North, and Chicken of the Eagle discovered who they are, of what nation. English, Latin, Saxon, Scotish and Welch prophecies concerning England in particular, and all Evrope in generall. : Passages upon the life and death of the late King Charles. Ænigmaticall types of the future state and condition of England for many years to come. By William Lilly, Student in Astrology.

      Original Edition (NOT a Reprint). Octavo. (8), 119, (1) pages plus 20 Emblemata illustrations to the rear. The papge with the first illustration present but blind (printer mistake). Hardcover / 18th century full calf with rebacked 20th century spine (gilt lettering to spine). Overall very good. Wormholes professionally repaired. Slightly fingerstained. From the library of William Charles de Meuron - Earl Fitzwilliam (with his bookplate to the pastedown). Extremely Rare ! William Lilly (11 May [O.S. 1 May] 1602 9 June 1681) has been described as "the most abused as well as the most celebrated astrologer of the seventeenth century". Born the son of a yeoman farmer in Leicestershire, Lilly travelled to London as a youth to take up a servant's position. Seven years later he secured his fortune by marrying his former master's widow, allowing him the leisure to study astrology. In 1644, during the English Civil War, he published the first of many popular astrological texts,and in 1647 he published Christian Astrology, a huge compendium of astrological technique. This was the first of its kind to be printed in the English language rather than Latin, and is said to have tutored "a nation in crisis in the language of the stars". By 1659, Lilly's fame was widely acknowledged and his annual almanac was achieving sales of around 30,000 copies a year. Lilly's autobiography, published towards the end of his life in 1681, at the request of his patron Elias Ashmole, gives candid accounts of the political events of his era, and biographical details of contemporaries that are unavailable elsewhere. It was described, in the late 18th century, as "one of the most entertaining narratives in our language", in particular for the historical portrayal it leaves of men like John Dee, Simon Forman, John Booker, Edward Kelley, including a whimsical first meeting of John Napier and Henry Briggs, respective co-inventors of the logarithm and Briggsian logarithms, and for its curious tales about the effects of crystals and the appearance of Queen Mab. In it, Lilly describes the friendly support of Oliver Cromwell during a period in which he faced prosecution for issuing political astrological predictions. He also writes about the 1666 Great Fire of London, and how he was brought before the committee investigating the cause of the fire, being suspected of involvement because of his publication of images, 15 years earlier, which depicted a city in flames surrounded by coffins. Lilly was a controversial character who was both aided and abetted by powerful friends and enemies. He attracted the attention of many members of Parliament, through the support of Sir Bulstrode Whitelocke, Lord Keeper of the Great Seal of England, (to whom he dedicated his Christian Astrology), but also accused Members of Parliament of engineering charges against him in 1651. To his supporters he was an "English Merlin" to his detractors he was a "juggling wizard and imposter". He is described as having been a genius at something "that modern mainstream opinion has since decided cannot be done at all", and having developed his stature as the most important astrologer in England through his social and political involvement, as well as his impact on the astrological tradition.

        Melencolia I

      1602 - Bulino, 1602, firmato e datato in lastra in basso. Esemplare nel primo stato di due, avanti l’indirizzo di Danker Dankerts. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, con sottili margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Copia molto fedele dell’omonima e celebre incisione di Albrecht Dürer, questo lavoro viene realizzato dal Wierix a distanza di quasi 90 anni dall’originale. La presenza del monogramma del Maestro di Norimberga, fa supporre ad un omaggio per lui e dimostra la grande influenza dell’opera a distanza di un secolo circa dalla sua esecuzione. La composizione è assolutamente fedele all’originale. Di notte o in una relativa oscurità, illuminata da un arcobaleno e una cometa, una figura femminile alata e pensosa è seduta su una terrazza di pietra. Sullo sfondo, una massa d’acqua sopra la quale volteggia un pipistrello che sorregge un cartiglio esplicativo che contiene il titolo. Attorniato da un’impressionante e apparentemente disordinata serie d’oggetti, la figura alata trova quali compagni nella sua notturna solitudine, un cane addormentato e un cherubino alato. Hieronimus Wierix, esponente della nota famiglia di incisori ed artisti di Anversa, inizia la sua attività presso Christoph Plantin, maggiore editore dell’epoca nelle Fiandre, dove diviene un esperto incisore. La sua prima opera indipendente è datata 1577 ed è successiva al periodo che trascorse in prigione per le sue idee ribelli verso la Spagna cattolica. La migliore derivazione della Melelcolia I di Dürer. Engraving, 1602, signed and dated in plate at the bottom. Example in the first state of two, before the address of Danker Dankerts. A beautiful impression, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, with narrow margins, in good condition. A very faithful copy of the homonymous famous engraving by Albrecht Dürer, this work is carried out by Wierix after almost 90 years from the original. The presence of the monogram of the Master of Nuremberg, suggests a tribute to him and shows the great influence of the work at a distance of about a century from its execution. The composition is absolutely faithful to the original. At night or in relative darkness, lit by a rainbow and a comet, a winged female figure and thoughtful is sitting on a stone terrace. In the background, a body of water over which hovers a bat holding a scroll that contains the explanatory title. Surrounded by an impressive and seemingly chaotic series of objects, the winged figure is as companions in his lonely night, a sleeping dog and a winged cherub. Hieronimus Wierix, a member of the famous family of engravers and artists in Antwerp, he began his career working with Christoph Plantin,'s largest publisher of the time in Flanders, where he became an expert engraver. His first independent work is dated 1577, and after the period he spent in prison for his ideas to the rebels Catholic Spain. The best derivation of the Melelcolia by Dürer. Bartsch 74a; The Illustrated Bartsch, 074, C1 I/II; Alvin 1576. Dimensioni 186 237mm [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Principato Citra olim Picentia

      Bologna 1602 - Carta geografica tratta da "L'Italia" a cura di Fabio Magini, edito a Bologna tra il 1620 ed il 1640. la carta deriva da quella contenuta nell’atlantino napoletano opera del cartografo viterbese Mario Cartaro. This map derives from the one included in the neapolitan atlas made by Mario Cartaro, a cartographer from Viterbo. Slightly spoiled at margins, overall in very good conditions. -Italy according to Magini: a cartographical model for posterity- Giovanni Antonio Magini was born in Padua in 1555, dedicating himself to the study of astronomy from an early age. In 1588 the Senate of Bologna appointed him Lecturer of Astronomy at the local university, choosing him instead of Galileo Galilei. His friendship with the Duke of Mantua, Vincenzo Gonzaga, helped Magini in his quest to obtain cartographical material for map-making from the various sovereigns ruling the different italian states at that time. Because of Magini's early death in 1617 this effort was made known by his son Fabio when he published the atlas "L'Italia" in Bologna in 1620. This is the first example of an italian atlas and is made up of 24 pages of descriptive text and 61 maps of the italian peninsula. Although this work was published posthumously, it can be entirely ascribed to Magini. He began drawing this maps around 1594, with the one depicting Bologna and its surrounding territories being the first. They were all printed before 1620 in draft editions which were then revised and updated for the final version. These draft proofs are extremely rare, although sometimes available for sale, and exhibit substantial differences in respect to the maps finally included in the atlas. Two of the most famous engravers of the time, Arnoldo Arnoldi and the englishman Benjamin Wright, were entrusted by Magini to engrave the plates. As we shall see in the presentation of the separate maps, they derive from different sources, both known and unknown, and therefore represent the result of an original work of critical analysis and compilation. This atlas had an important influence on the cartography of the italian peninsula for the following two centuries, beginning from Ortelius and going on to the principal dutch cartographers and editors. From the 1620 edition of "L’Italia". Almagià pagg. 74/76. Dimensioni 470 355mm

He is described as having been a genius at something "that modern mainstream opinion has since decided cannot be done at all", and having developed his stature as the most important astrologer in England through his social and political involvement, as well as his impact on the astrological tradition.

From the library of William Charles de Meuron - Earl Fitzwilliam (with his bookplate to the pastedown). Extremely Rare ! William Lilly (11 May [O.S. 1 May] 1602 9 June 1681) has been described as "the most abused as well as the most celebrated astrologer of the seventeenth century". Born the son of a yeoman farmer in Leicestershire, Lilly travelled to London as a youth to take up a servant's position. Seven years later he secured his fortune by marrying his former master's widow, allowing him the leisure to study astrology. In 1644, during the English Civil War, he published the first of many popular astrological texts,and in 1647 he published Christian Astrology, a huge compendium of astrological technique. This was the first of its kind to be printed in the English language rather than Latin, and is said to have tutored "a nation in crisis in the language of the stars". By 1659, Lilly's fame was widely acknowledged and his annual almanac was achieving sales of around 30,000 copies a year. Lilly's autobiography, published towards the end of his life in 1681, at the request of his patron Elias Ashmole, gives candid accounts of the political events of his era, and biographical details of contemporaries that are unavailable elsewhere. It was described, in the late 18th century, as "one of the most entertaining narratives in our language", in particular for the historical portrayal it leaves of men like John Dee, Simon Forman, John Booker, Edward Kelley, including a whimsical first meeting of John Napier and Henry Briggs, respective co-inventors of the logarithm and Briggsian logarithms, and for its curious tales about the effects of crystals and the appearance of Queen Mab. In it, Lilly describes the friendly support of Oliver Cromwell during a period in which he faced prosecution for issuing political astrological predictions. He also writes about the 1666 Great Fire of London, and how he was brought before the committee investigating the cause of the fire, being suspected of involvement because of his publication of images, 15 years earlier, which depicted a city in flames surrounded by coffins. Lilly was a controversial character who was both aided and abetted by powerful friends and enemies. He attracted the attention of many members of Parliament, through the support of Sir Bulstrode Whitelocke, Lord Keeper of the Great Seal of England, (to whom he dedicated his Christian Astrology), but also accused Members of Parliament of engineering charges against him in 1651. To his supporters he was an "English Merlin" to his detractors he was a "juggling wizard and imposter". He is described as having been a genius at something "that modern mainstream opinion has since decided cannot be done at all", and having developed his stature as the most important astrologer in England through his social and political involvement, as well as his impact on the astrological tradition.

        Prières en vers, et rime, pour reciter durant le sacrifice de la Messe, & s'accorder à cela que le prestre dit, & que le clergé chante avant le sacrifice, les jours solemnels. Par D. Jean le Prevost, Valencenois, Religieux de Hasnon, de l'ordre Sainct Benoist.

      Chez Laurent Kellam, A Valenciennes 1602 - Petit in-8 de (34)-402-(8) pp., maroquin brun, dos à nerfs, dentelle intérieure, tranches dorées (L. Claessens). Très rare impression valenciennoise dont un seul exemplaire est répertorié au Catalogue collectif de France. Le recueil de prières de Jean Le Prévost fut longtemps considéré par les bibliographes comme le premier livre imprimé dans la ville de Valenciennes et Laurent Kellam comme le « père de la typographie valenciennoise » en vertu du passage de l'épître dédicatoire adressée par l'auteur aux magistrats de Valenciennes (verso du feuillet C3) : En après, veu qu'avec grace libéralle, vous avés ici admis un imprimeur, ou il n'en y avait point encore eu : il appertient bien que ce livre composé et imprimé en a ce lieu, contenant prières en vers françois, pour soi servir sous le sacrifice de la messe , chose non « pratiquée par autre, porte vostre nom en chef, pour servir comme de rameau verdoyant , sur le fait d'un charpentage nouveau érigé ». Des recherches reprises au début du XXe siècle firent remonter les premières impressions à l'adresseValenchienes autour de 1500. Connu pour ses impressions douaisiennes et répertorié comme tel par Duthilloeul sous les dates 1604-1614, Laurent Kellam, venu d'Allemagne, installa ses presses à Valenciennes « à la fin du XVIe siècle » selon Deschamps ; c'est à cette même époque que le religieux Jean Le Prévost terminait sa traduction poétique en vers français des prières de la messe et des diverses pratiques religieuses des catholiques - projet qu'il mena pour faire pièce aux « hérétiques » qui chantaient les Psaumes mis en vers par Marot et raillaient les catholiques qui entonnaient du latin sans en comprendre un mot. Le 5 novembre 1593, le religieux natif de Valenciennes obtint du roi d'Espagne le privilège de la faire imprimer ; Laurent Kellam qui achevait le premier imprimé sous son nom (intitulé Argument général de la Tragicomédie? A Vallenciennes, De l'imprimerie Laurent Kellam, Imprimeur juré de ladite ville 1601, on en connaît aucun exemplaire), se chargea de l'impression du recueil du bénédictin de l'abbaye de Hasnon. Bel exemplaire dans une reliure de Claessens, provenant de la bibliothèque de la famille Merlin d'Estreux de Beaugrenier avec son ex-libris armorié ; sur la garde supérieure, note biographique manuscrite sur l'auteur mort en 1616. 2 feuillets liminaires Ff3-4 restaurés.

      Konvolut von 140 Büchern aus dem 17. und 18. Jahrhundert. Das älteste Buch stammt von 1602 (eine Terenz-Ausgabe), die jüngsten Bücher stammen aus den 1790er Jahren. Die Bücher liegen oft in Einzelbänden mehrbändiger Werke vor und sind teils in deutscher, teils in lateinischer oder französischer oder englischer Sprache gedruckt. Das kleinste Buch misst gerade mal 11,5 x 5,5 cm (ein weiteres nur 10,5 x 7,5 cm) - das größte Buch, ein zweifarbig gedrucktes Graduale Romanum von 1651 in reich blindgeprägtem Schweinsleder-Einband auf Holzdeckeln, misst 46 x 30 cm. - Autoren sind u.a. Thomas von Aquin, Voltaire, Friedrich der Große, Juvenal, Luther, Salomon Gessner, Klopstock, Goethe ("The Sorrows of Werter" von 1795, 2 Bände in 1), Racine... Die Texte sind teils biblischer oder religiöser Natur, es sind aber auch Bände aus den Bereichen Philosophie, Belletristik, Landeskunde, Geschichte, Mathematik, etc. enthalten. - Die Bücher liegen in unterschiedlichen, fast durchgehend zeitgenössischen Einbänden vor - meist Leder- oder Halbledereinbände, teilweise Pergamenteinbände oder Pappbände. - Die Bücher sind durchgehend in schlechtem Zustand (Einbände berieben und bestoßen, vereinzelt mit Fehlstellen, vor allem an Kopf und Fuß der Rücken, beschädigte oder fehlende Rückenschildchen innen oft Eselsohren, Flecken, angeränderte Seiten, Besitzvermerke, etc.).

Zehn der Bände haben keinen Einband. - Trotz oder gerade wegen der teilweise deutlichen Alters-, Gebrauchs- und Mißbrauchsspuren charmantes Konvolut und vielleicht besonders gut geeignet als Filmrequisite, buchrestauratorisches Rohmaterial oder buchkundlich-buchgeschichtlich-einbandkundliches und druckgeschichtliches Anschauungsmaterial. - Der Versand erfolgt ohne Aufpreis - jedoch nur innerhalb Deutschlands und den EU-Ländern.

        Sermones siue enarrationes in Euangelia et Epistolas Quadragesimales.

      Qui Thesaurus Nouus uulgo uocantur. Exactissime et fidelissime nunc primum in Germania editi & recogniti. Übersetzung des Textes auf dem Titelblatt: "Prädigten beziehungsweise, Erzählungen der Fastenzeit zu den Evangelien und den Briefen, die gemein als "Neues Testament" bezeichnet werden. Genaustens und äußerst treu nun erstmals in Deutschland ediert und herausgegeben. Köln, bei Anton Hierat, unter dem Einhorn, 1602." Die Erwähnung des Einhorns nach dem Namen des Verlegers ist eine Anspielung auf das Verlagssignet von Gymnich, dessen Geschäft Hierat kurz zuvor übernommen hatte. Auf dem Titelblatt ist eine Kupfervignette mit einem Emblem, das die Buchstaben IHS (wohl Griechisch für ??s???/Jesus) beinhaltet, abgebildet. In späteren Drucken benutzte er allerdings einen Greif als Signet. Mit Schriftzug in alter Hand auf dem Titelblatt, über dem Signet. Möglicherweise war vor dem Titelblatt noch ein Titelkupfer eingefügt, was aber nicht mehr vorhanden ist. Das Buch wurde im siebzehnten Jahrhundert aufwendig eingebunden: es weist einen geprägten Ganzpergamenteinband der Zeit und zwei Buchschließen, von denen jedoch nur noch eine vollständig und funktional vorhanden ist, auf. Der Rücken weist drei echte Bünde auf und trägt am oberen Rand ein aufgeklebtes Titelschild, worunter sich anscheinend ein älteres befindet. Auf dem Bucheinband ist auf der vorderen Seite ein Wappen mit der Kreuzabnahme Jesu mit der Gottesmutter Maria und dem Schriftzug "Aue qu[ia] de cruce suscepisti uulnis Iesum" (?) sowie einige florale und vegetale Motive neben dem Schriftzug "Sermone Depalud" (sic) farbig eingeprägt. Der Rest des einbandes ist blind mit Ornamenten und schwer verständlichen Wörtern geprägt. Auf der Hinterseite des Einbandes gibt es dazu noch die Abbildung einer Person (womöglich eines Heiligen?). Das Buch hat einen rot gefärbten Ganzschnitt. Petrus de Palude (Peter Paludanus), erste Hälfte des 14. Jahrhunderts, war ein französischer Theologe und Bischoff, Mitglied des Dominikanerordens. Nach Thomas von Aquin vertrat er die Trennung zwischen geistlicher und weltlicher Gewalt. Das Werk ist in 98 Enarrationes (Erzählungen, scil. Prädigten) eingeteilt, die für die Tage Fastenzeit von den Aschertagen bis Ostern vorgesehen sind. Für einige besondere Tage wird mehr als eine Prädigt vorgeschlagen. Dieses Werk unterscheidet sich inhaltlich von den Sermones: Pars aestiualis und Pars hyemalis, da diese andere Feiertage und dementsprechend andere Themen für die Prädigten vorsehen und behandeln. Trotzdem überschneiden sie sich, E.g. bei der Osterprädigt (Dominica Paschae, sowohl in diesem wie auch im Band "Sermones Pars aestiuualis.". Das gesamte Werk ist an die Hörerschaft angepasst (soweit dies für einen lithurgischen Text in der damaligen römisch-katholischen Kirche möglich war) und in einem einfach gehaltenem Latein geschrieben. Das Buch ist leider durchgängig von Wurmlöchern durchbort, wovon auch der Bucheinband betroffen ist. Erwähnenswerten Textverlust gibt es allerdings nicht. Am Ende des Buches gibt es noch zwei unpaginierte Blätter, die den Index enthalten. Das Buch befindet sich in einem guten Zustand. Siehe Foto.
