Browne, Thomas
1605-1682 Octavo, 6 x 3.75 inches. Fifth edition. A,A-T8, A-E8. Engraved frontispiece by William Marshall. This copy is bound in later smooth calf, gilt ruled edges, all edges gilt. gilt spine with a red. leather label. Hand marbled endsheets, gilt dentelles, quite a nice copy. It is far from clear that Thomas Browne ever considered publishing Religio Medici, his first and most influential work. Written during his medical apprenticeship in the mid-1630s, this essay on the religion of a doctor was (in typical fashion) circulated in multiple manuscripts among friends for seven years until 1642, when Andrew Crooke, an enterprising publisher of controversialist writing, obtained it and printed it anonymously, without the author's permission or knowledge. What Browne would later describe as "a private exercise directed to myself" was an immediate commercial success, and Crooke quickly brought out a second edition. Browne, meanwhile, had wind of a work about to be published by the colourful savant Sir Kenelm Digby, apparently responding to Browne's essay. He immediately set about revising the pirated text for authorised publication in 1643. Together with Digby's Observations upon Religio Medici, the 1643 edition, now with Browne's name on it, established his reputation in English and Continental writing. Religio Medici has been described as spiritual autobiography, but it has in fact only occasional resemblance to the true seventeenth-century exponents of the form like Lucy Hutchinson and John Aubrey. Although Browne's subject is his own beliefs, the essay is better understood a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Coke, Edward, Sir (1552-1634); Swinton, John (1703-1777); Baker, George
London: London printed for the Companie of Stationers. Anno Dom. 1605., 1605. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Modern quarter-leather over buckram, endpapers renewed. Ex-library, with small stamps on the verso of the title-page and on folio 39v. Lacks the tract "De iure Regis ecclesiastico," inserted between A8 and [2]B1 in most copies. Laid in is a draft manuscript report of a motion for arrest of judgment in R. v. Baker, K.B. Trin. 13&14 G.2 (1740), which was an information for a libel by George Baker on the Rev. John Swinton. The report is on a single side of a half sheet, 250 x 185 mm; based on the obliterations and interlineations, it seems to be a draft. For background on the case, see A Faithful narrative of the proceedings in a late affair between the Rev. Mr. John Swinton, and Mr. George Baker (1739) (ESTC T35232) (HOLLIS No. 004093710), reprinted in Secret Sexualities 85-100 (Ian McCormick, ed., 1996); Lee Edelman, Homographesis: Essays in Gay Literary and Cultural Theory 123-124 (1994); E.

DAVID, Joannes (i.e. Jan), S.J.
Antwerp, Plantin-Moretus, 1605. With engr. title, 12 full-page etchings by Theodoor Galle, engr. printer's device on second title (p. 271), woodcut printer's device at end. 8 leaves, 307, (1) pp., 13 leaves index (lacking last blank). Small 4to. Mottled calf in contemp. style (new endpapers). In slipcase. Antwerp, Plantin-Moretus, 1605. First edition. A moralistic emblem book on opportunity and neglected opportunity, followed by a drama embodying the author's precepts. Johannes David (1545-1613) was principal of Jesuit schools at Courtrai and Ghent. The fine illustrations are by Theodoor Galle (1571-1633), from a renowned Antwerp family of engravers, who was closely associated to the Plantin Press. Each of the finely executed emblems shows the goddess Opportunity (Occasio), her long hair covering her face, while the back of her head is bald: you have to seize her when she comes towards you, once she is passed, there is no way of getting hold of her. Part II (pp. 271-307), with separate title, is a drama on the same theme, with two groups of young men, five wise (prudentes), and five unwise (imprudentes). "Via the Jesuits, the Council of Trent's teaching on images reached emblem theory. Emblems, for the Jesuits, are in any case part of a much broader strategy. A strikingly beautiful example of this, albeit one taken from emblematic practice, is Johannes David's Occasio arrepta . The 'picturae' not only make up a curious emblematic allegorical chain, in which, as in modern comics, words are put into character's mouths by means of captions; they also function as illustrations … [Click Below for Full Description]

Attraverso uno svolgimento precettistico più che tramite una sistematica teoria delle forme di governo, Giusto Lipsio fornisce la propria visione delle istituzioni monarchiche e dei compromessi inerenti alla politica, preferendo, tra i diversi mali, l'autoritarismo del despota ai perniciosi contraccolpi suscitati dai moti rivoluzionari, e ritenendo inevitabile frutto di una provvidenziale ciclicità il succedere dei buoni principi a quelli cattivi.
