MARIE DE MEDICI (1575-1642), Queen consort of France
from Fontainebleau, 22 May 1608 One page oblong 4to., (7 4/8 x 8 4/8), float-mounted and framed, written in a clerical hand on the recto only (paper slightly browned, traces of vertical and horizontal folds). This beautifully-preserved piece is an affectionate letter from the great Marie de Medici, queen of France of Italian descent, to her Cousin [Sire mon Cousin]. The letter is warm and kind, filled with words such as amitié [friendship], affection [affection], bienveillance [goodwill], and its sole purpose is to maintain the amity between the two cousins: de continuer et conserver toujours l'amitié, l'affection et bienveillance que vous m'avez témoigné, et prendre entièrement assurance de la mienne [ever to continue and keep the friendship, affection and goodwill that you have shown me and rest entirely assure of my own]. Two years after this letter was written, Marie's husband, Henri IV king of France was assassinated and the Italian princess became sole monarch of France. Henri IV had married her essentially for financial purposes and the French noblesse always begrudged the queen her foreign descent. The great Florentine Medici family were extremely wealthy bankers and the main money-lenders of France-a Medici princess would have brought with her a dowry of 600 000 crowns. In fact Marie was cruelly nicknamed the 'fat-banker' by Henri's jealous mistresses. When the king died in 1610, the noblesse accused her of favouring (in particular financially) the Italian members of the court which eventually lead to a rebellion on the part of the nobles in 1614.

Paracelsus und Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim:
Straßburg, Pauli Ledertz, 1608. 198 S., letzte Seite fehlt, sonst ordentliches Exemplar, Theophrastus Bombast von Hohenheim, genannt Paracelsus, (* 1493 in Einsiedeln; † 24. September 1541 in Salzburg) war ein Arzt, Alchemist, Mystiker, Laientheologe und Philosoph. Der Name Paracelsus ist wahrscheinlich nur ein aus dem altgriechisch-lateinischen gebildeter „Humanistenname" (para = bei; celsus = hoch). Das Wissen und Wirken des Paracelsus gilt als überaus umfassend. Seine Heilungserfolge waren legendär, trugen ihm aber auch erbitterte Gegnerschaft durch etablierte Mediziner und Apotheker ein. Verschärft wurden deren Anwürfe durch zusätzliche, oftmals beißende Kritik seitens des Paracelsus an der vorherrschenden Lehrmeinung der Viersäftelehre nach Galen und der bloßen Bücherweisheit damaliger medizinischer Gelehrter. Paracelsus hinterließ zahlreiche deutschsprachige Aufzeichnungen und Bücher medizinischen, astrologischen, philosophischen und theologischen Inhalts, die größtenteils erst nach seinem Tode erschienen.

VALLET, Pierre (ca 1575-1657).
Paris: Pierre Vallet, 1608 Folio (13 5/8 x 9 inches). Etched architectural title-page with figures of Clusius and de L'Obel flanking a view of a formal garden with glass-houses beyond, engraved portraits of Vallet and Jean Robin, 73 unnumbered etched plates of flowers (one or two insignificant spots). 18th-century mottled calf (expertly rebacked preserving the original spine).

In Paris he met Jean Robin, who directed the Royal Gardens of the Louvre for Henri III, Henri IV and Louis XIII.
