        The Bible with Apocrypha - King James Version [2 volumes in a slipcase]

      London: The Folio Society. AN. 2011. Hardcover. Full blue morocco with gilt titles on spines and gilt design on upper boards, all edges gilt, internally clean and bright, No.309 of an edition of 1000 produced by the Folio Society to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the printing of the original King James Bible. Two 'As New' volumes in a similar slipcase. Heavy item, may incur additional shipping costs for international delivery. , One of the first acts of King James I when he ascended the throne of England in 1603 was to commission a new translation of the Bible. The previous two centuries had seen the controversial arrival of the first ever English translations, and competing versions abounded. As head of the Church, James laid down the guiding principles of his new Bible, and forty-seven scholars from all over the country including Oxford, Cambridge and Winchester were assembled for the most ambitious translation project of the Reformation era. The scholars aimed above all to be faithful to the original Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic, translating literally where necessary. Though they were not aiming for poetic effect, their approach gave rise to some of the Bible’s most memorable and beautiful idioms. The Bible that resulted from their work became the touchstone by which all other translations are judged and remains one of the most important books in history. , 4to 11" - 13" tall, xxxvi + 884 & vi + 885-1868 pp .

        Tragoediae Septem

      Geneva: Paul Estienne, 1603 First edition of Paul Estienne's greatest achievement. Schreiber notes: "This is not a mere reprint of Henri's edition of 1578, but a much improved work: besides the commentaries of Camerarius, it includes the Annotationes of Henri Estienne, which were not found in the earlier edition. The Greek Sophoclean text is accompanied by the scholia of Triclinios and the Latin translation of Vitus Winsemius (Veit Oertel)" (Schreiber 273). In a contemporary French prize binding of full sheep, with a provenance inscription marking its passing from the Abbey of Sain-Remi to the Jesuit College in Reims in 1626. Covers profusely gilt with a pattern of crosses, interspersed with fleurs-de-lys and central arms, flat spine, gilt-stamped with the same cross motif, with gilt lettering, edges dotted in gilt, remains of ties, all edges gilt. Hinges cracking, but very sound, small crack front joint near top edge. Expensive notes in a contemporary and early eighteenth-century hand in the preliminaries and at end, early ownership inscription (Grosley) and another (Roger) on first title-page, the second repeated on preliminary blank. Bound in as a reinforcement before the front free endpaper is a fragment of a fourteenth-century document on vellum. Two parts in one, quarto. . With seven pages of early manuscript notes at the end. Greek and roman letter, in an elegant layout, with the Greek text occupying the upper half of the page, with the Latin translation underneath, and a Greek commentary at the foot. Second part in double columns, in Latin, with references in Greek. Printer's device on first title, decorative woodcut initials and tail-pieces. A few small marks, two leaves with short closed tear at fore-edge, one gathering misbound, light dampstain to upper margin of a few gatherings at center, but a very good and highly desirable copy in a spectacular binding. In new cloth slipcase. This book was given as a prize by Henri de Lorraine, the great abbot of Sain-Remi, Reims, to the prefect of the Reims Jesuit college, 1626. It carries the Prefect's note on the front free endpaper and the front free end-paper and the Jesuit emblem embossed on a small piece of paper pasted at the foot. Eighteenth-century ownership inscription, "Grosley," likely the French scholar, collector and historian Pierre-Jean Grosley, on title, with his long, densely penned manuscript note (post 1724) occupying the rest of the page and its verso, as well as five pages of the three final free endleaves, with scholarly notes and comments on the editions of Greek tragedies.

        ORLANDO FURIOSO and I CINQUE CANTI

      Venice: F. Valgrisi and N. Moretti, 1603. Early Printing. vellum. Trimmed at the top close to the text and plate lines, affecting one line of text in the dedication; other margins quite adequate. Vellum soiled. Very Good or better. Large octavo (7" x 10") bound in early full vellum, [16] 654 [32] pages. The complete and corrected ORLANDO FURIOSO, with Ruscelli's dedication to the Duke of Ferrara dated 1556 and an account of the life of Ariosto by Battista Pigna. Illustrated with an engraved title page, 51 full-page woodcuts, ornamental headpieces, and initial letters. The woodcuts, within decorative borders, are after the designs of Dossa Dossi, the Ferrarese painter and are printed from the blocks of the first Valgrisi quarto editon of 1556. Some of the impressions are weak, but most are quite presentable. First published in 1516, this classic Italian romantic epic influenced many later works including Spenser's THE FAERIE QUEENE and Shakespeare's MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. The action takes place against the background of the war between Charlemagne and his Christian paladins and the Saracen army which is attempting to invade Europe. However, Ariosto has little concern for historical or geographical accuracy, and the poem wanders at will from Japan to the Hebrides, as well as including many fantastical and magical elements, such as a trip to the moon and an array of fantastical creatures including a gigantic sea monster called the orc and the hippogriff. The poem grew in popularity as well in size after Ariosto's death, increasing in size from 40 to 46 cantos in 1532 and finally to the finished form of 51 cantos.

        Oratio darinnen ausführlich erkleret und dargestellt wird, wer ansenglich ursach geben zu dem Tumult, Zwispalt und Uneinigkeit, so nun eine geraume Zeit hero in dem uhralten und hocklöblichen Königreich der Schweden und Gothen geschwebt, dessgleichen auch zu dem blutdürstigen Kriege, der noch heutiges Tages zwischen den Schweden und Polen unendtscheiden stehet.

      Item: Darinnen auch etwas gehandelt wird von der alten Schweden und Gothen Tappferkeit und manlichen Thaten in Kriegssachen. Gehalten den 22 Augusti an: 1603 auff der Königlischen Vestung Calmar, /.../. Durch Ioannem Skytte. Aus dem Schwedischen Exemplar in Teutsche sprach versetzt. Stockholm, Andream Gutterwitz, 1608. 4:o. (48) s. Fläckig och med samtida bläckanteckningar i marginalen. Häftad, i senare pappersomslag med handskriven etikett. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Collijn sp. 858. Warmholtz 3366. Första upplagan. Ett omtryck kom året därpå. Johan Skytte (1577-1645) född Schroderus, var diplomat, riksråd, universitetskansler m.m. samt lärare åt kronprins Gustav Adolf. Han användes flitigt som politisk talesman åt Karl IX och sedermera för Gustav II Adolf. Detta viktiga tal, som hölls inför ständerna 1603 för att förklara nödvändigheten av att föra ett expansivt krig i Baltikum mot Polen, är enligt Erland Sellberg (SBL XXXII. s. 507) ett klassiskt exempel på talekonst, distinkt och välbalanserat. Karl IX blev så imponerade att han lät översätta det till tyska, och trycka det i två upplagor
