        Strena seu de nive sexangula.Frankfurt: Godefrid Tampach, 1611.

      First edition of this Kepler rarity, the first scientific treatise concerning crystallography. Written in the form of a letter, this small tract was presented as a New Year's gift to Kepler's friend at court, Matthaus Wackher von Wackenfels (who had informed Kepler of the discoveries Galileo had made with the telescope in 1610). "It is not only a charming letter, light-hearted and full of puns, but also a perceptive, pioneering study of the regular arrangement and the close packing that are fundamental in crystallography" (DSB). In the course of this study, Kepler is led to formulate 'Kepler's conjecture,' one of the "greatest unsolved problems in mathematics" (Singh), which was the 18th of the problems David Hilbert presented to the mathematical world at the International Congress of Mathematicians in 1900.<br/><br/> "Crossing the bridge over the Moldau in a snowstorm, [Kepler] noticed the snowflakes falling on his sleeve. Being nearsighted, he could closely observe their hexagonal form, each snowflake different from the others, yet all six-sided. His roving mind, always filled with curiosity, began to reflect on the causes behind their pattern. What resulted was a little booklet, a New Year's gift for a friend, the charming tract that is now considered one of the pioneering works in theoretical mineralogy" (Gingerich, p. 10). <i>Strena</i> begins with a typically humanist, playful <i>jeu de mots</i>, suggesting that he is sending "some nothing" (<i>nihil</i>), a pun on the equivalent German word <i>nichts</i>, which is pronounced the same as the Latin word <i>nix</i>, meaning snow. He continues with a discussion of "nothing" with allusion to the lecherous sparrow, sacred to Venus, a topos found in ancient Greek and Latin poetry (famously in Catullus) and describes how his experience in the snowstorm gave him the idea for "something" which a poor mathematician, "<i>nihil habens, nihil accipiens</i>," could give as a present. <br/><br/> Its serious content is a discussion of snow crystals and their hexagonal structure. "Why is it," Kepler asks, "that when we see snowstars (<i>stellulae nivales</i>) they are always hexagonal, and never pentagonal or heptagonal..." "The specific answer lay a few centuries in the future [in the molecular structure of ice], but Kepler's fertile theological imagination saw a direction towards a solution, a "formative faculty" at work in the universe, a concept that he would develop in both his <i>Epitome of Copernican Astronomy</i> and his <i>Harmonice mundi</i>" (Gingerich, pp. 10-11). <br/><br/> Theorizing that the snow crystals are built from minute spheres of ice, Kepler analyzes how these tiny spheres can be stacked together to form larger crystals. He writes: "For in general equal spheres when collected in any vessel, come to a mutual arrangement in two modes according to the two modes of arranging them in a plane. If equal spheres are loose in the same horizontal plane and you drive them together so tightly that they touch each other, they come together either in a three-cornered or in a four-cornered pattern. In the former case six surround one; in the latter four. Throughout there is the same pattern of contact between all the spheres except the outermost. With a five-sided pattern uniformity cannot be maintained. A six-sided pattern breaks up into three-sided. Thus there are only the two patterns as described. <br/><br/> "Now if you proceed to pack the solid bodies as tightly as possible, and set the files that are first arranged on the level on top of others, layer on layer, the spheres will be either squared, or in triangles. If squared, either each single sphere of the upper range will rest on a single sphere of the lower, or, on the other hand, each single sphere of the upper range will settle between every four of the lower. In the former mode any sphere is touched by four neighbours in the same plane, and by one above and one below, and so on throughout, each touched by six others. The arrangement will be cubic, and the spheres, when subjected to pressure, will become cubes. But this will not be the tightest pack. In the second mode not only is every sphere touched by its four neighbours in the same plane, but also by four in the plane above and by four below, and so throughout one will be touched by twelve, and under pressure spherical spheres will become rhomboid. This arrangement will be more comparable to the octahedron and pyramid. <i>This arrangement will be the tightest possible, so that in no other arrangement could more spheres be stuffed into the same container</i>" (<i>The Six-Cornered Snowflake</i>, Oxford 1966, translated by Colin Hardie, with "pellet" changed to "sphere" and italics added). <br/><br/> This last assertion is what is called the 'Kepler conjecture.' The problem had its origin around 1587, when Sir Walter Raleigh asked his mathematician Thomas Harriot how to calculate the number of cannonballs in a square pyramidal stack without counting them directly. Harriot solved the problem easily, but his interest in the arrangements of spheres went far beyond cannonballs - he was an ardent atomist, believing that the secrets of the universe were to be revealed through the patterns and packings of small, spherical atoms. In correspondence with Kepler on the origin of rainbows in 1606-7, Harriot tried to persuade Kepler that the deeper mysteries of optics would be revealed through atomism, but Kepler was skeptical: Nature abhors a vacuum, and between the atoms lies the void. Nevertheless, his interest in the arrangements of atoms had been aroused (there is a brief reference in the present work on p.1 to Epicurus and his atoms). <br/><br/> Kepler's conjecture states that the most efficient packing of equal spheres is the 'face-centred cubic' packing. This is constructed by setting one layer of spheres upon another. Each layer is a regular pattern of spheres in a grid of equilateral triangles, and the spheres in each successive layer sit in gaps in the preceding layer. There are in fact two ways to place each layer in gaps in the preceding layer, so there are many packings all with the same efficiency - in all of them the proportion of space occupied by the spheres is ?/?18 (approximately 0.74048). Placing every third layer in the same position gives the face-centred cubic packing (the other well-known case is 'hexagonal close packing,' in which every alternate layer is the same). <br/><br/> Kepler's conjecture remained undecided for almost four centuries until in 1998 Professor Thomas Hales of Michigan University, together with his student Samuel Ferguson, announced that they had proved the conjecture. The proof is extremely long (282 pages!) and requires extensive computer calculations, and it is therefore a challenge to test its correctness. It is now generally accepted by the mathematical community. <br/><br/> Caspar 39; Cinti 30; Roller & Goodman II, p. 34. Simon Singh, <i>Fermat's Last Theorem</i>, 1997.

        COMMENTARIEN OFTE MEMORIEN VAN DEN NEDERLANDTSCHEN STAET

      London [i.e., Amsterdam]. 1610.. [8],244,cxciv,167,[23],37,[1] leaves, including engraved titlepage and portrait of the author, plus 6pp. contemporary manuscript notes. Folio. Contemporary calf over wooden boards, tooled in blind, metal clasps, corners, and bosses. Wear to head and foot of spine, spine leather cracking. Some light scattered soiling and wear, minor worming to margin of last few leaves. About very good. A classic history of the Netherlands and the wars against the Spanish, and an important Americanum with very significant material on the discovery of the Hudson River and the English settlements in Virginia. The author, although Dutch, spent much of his career as a merchant in London, and had extensive commercial and publishing contacts on both sides of the Channel. The first part of his history was published in 1593, followed by subsequent editions, all with added material, including an account of Drake&#39;s West India voyage of 1585, the capture of Spanish shipping by the English in 1592, and the Hawkins and Drake West India raid of 1595. This Dutch chronicle has become essential for understanding the activities in London leading to British exploration and permanent settlement in the New World. Though dated 1608 on the titlepage, the colophon gives a London, 1610 imprint. Beginning with the Dutch edition of 1609, Meteren included detailed accounts of the Virginia Company and the English settlement in Virginia. According to Parker, that edition included "the first appearance in print of the first document relating to the Virginia colony...Meteren&#39;s abstract of the charter is so close to the original patent in both form and content as to leave no doubt that it was based on the original letters patent or some document closely related to them." Besides this, there is extensive information on the Virginia colony which appears to come directly from Virginia Company sources. The present 1610 edition also contains the first published account of the explorations of Henry Hudson along the Middle Atlantic seaboard and the discovery of New York and the Hudson River, and the first description of his coasting of Newfoundland and New France. All of the early editions of Meteren are extremely rare, with the NUC and EUROPEAN AMERICANA locating only a few copies of each. John Parker&#39;s VAN METEREN&#39;S VIRGINIA (Minneapolis, 1961) provides a translation of the sections relating to Virginia and a detailed account of Meteren and his life. J. Franklin Jameson, as editor of NARRATIVES OF NEW NETHERLAND, translates the Henry Hudson section. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 610/76. PALAU 166948. STC 17845.7.

      Paris or Lyon, 1610. Hardcover. Bound by Charles Lewis in the Duodo Style,A Magnificent Binding in Magnificent Condition. 286 x 229 mm (11 1/4 x 9 "). The first and third works small octavo inlaid to quarto, the binding measuring 286 x 224 mm. (11 3/8 x 9") The first work collating: [1] leaf, 14 pp.; the third work: 32 pp.; the other two folded broadsides measuring approximately 533 x 397 mm. (the volume bulked out with 33 blank leaves at the end). MAGNIFICENT EARLY 19TH CENTURY STRAIGHT-GRAIN OLIVE-BROWN MOROCCO, VERY LAVISHLY GILT, BY CHARLES LEWIS (stamp-signed on front doublure), the covers intricately tooled in gilt with an outer border composed of repeated impressions of two flower tools interspersed with stars and small flower-heads, with a third flower tool in the corners, then an inner border of repeated palm fronds and another branch, with a flower in the corners, these two borders around a large central panel filled with repeated impressions of six flower tools within laurel branches, with two smaller flowers, sprigs, stars, etc. in the spaces between, and, finally, at the center an oval cartouche, lettered "Vie Et Mort De Henry IV" on the front and with Pietro Duodo&#39;s arms on the rear; flat spine tooled in gilt with the six flowers within laurel branches and lettered "Henry IV" in a cartouche and with the date at the foot, the turn-ins densely gilt with azured leafy tools, RED MOROCCO DOUBLURES panelled with a series of single and triple fillets, with a lozenge-shaped central panel, and with arabesque and other ornamental tools at the corners and centers, free endleaves of matching red glazed paper. Contained in the original (slightly worn) calf pull-off case, with a green goatskin spine. The four works bound together and extra-illustrated with six engraved portraits (inlaid to size), four of them of Henri IV by de Leu, de Marcenay and Firens and after Goltzius, one of Marie de Medicis by de Leu, and one of the Duc de Sully by de Marcenay. A manuscript and a printed note tipped in at front reading in part, "This volume may justly be termed unique, both with respect to the brilliancy of the portraits contained in it, and its exquisite binding." The early contents with minor browning, but THE BINDING IN THE MOST AMAZING STATE OF PRESERVATION IMAGINABLE. As fresh and bright as the day it was finished, this is perhaps the largest and most elaborate of Charles Lewis&#39; "Duodo"-style bindings. It is from the Stowe House library of Richard Temple-Nugent-Brydges-Chandos-Grenville (1776-1839) first Duke of Buckingham, and may have been commissioned by him. It consciously imitates the Parisian bindings done for Pietro Duodo (1554-1611), the Venetian ambassador to France from 1594 to 1597. Duodo&#39;s portable gentleman&#39;s library of 90 works in 133 small but dazzling volumes (color-coded to reflect their content) appears to have been kept intact until the French Revolution, when it was brought to England and dispersed. The arrival of these bindings on the market evidently inspired a demand for copies, and Charles Lewis was probably the first to meet it. The naturalistic flower tools which festoon the covers are accurate copies of the original tools and seem to include the Carline thistle, forget-me-not, knapweed, clover, lily, and globe flower. In design, the binding is obviously appropriate for the content here, as the "Duodo" style was contemporary with the reign of Henry IV of France (b. 1553, reigned 1589-1610), and the texts, broadsheets, and extra-illustrations deal with the revered king and were published in the year of his death (all of these occasional pieces are now quite rare). Other examples of Lewis&#39; "Duodo" bindings are illustrated by Barber and Rogers in The Bodleian Library Record, vol. VIII, no.3, February 1969; and by Ramsden, in London Bookbinders 1780-1840, plate XVIII. Dibdin commissioned such a binding from Lewis for his presentation copy of Brunet&#39;s Manuel du Libraire (1814), which is now in the British Library. An example by Charles Smith was item 214 in Maggs Bros. catalogue 1212, and Riviere was still producing them at the end of the 19th century. The son of a Hanoverian immigrant, Charles Lewis (1786-1836) was apprenticed to Henry Walther at 14, and obtained his freedom in 1807. He set up a shop in Scotland Yard, had other addresses in the Strand, and then established himself in Duke Street, St. James&#39;s, in 1817. By 1823 he was employing 21 journeymen, a number of whom are illustrated in a watercolor of the bindery reproduced in Middleton&#39;s "A History of English Craft Bookbinding Technique" (p. 349). Lewis was patronized by the great collectors of the day, including William Beckford, who favored him above all others. In a letter to the bookseller George Clarke written in 1831, Beckford declared: "Lewis was, and is, and I hope will continue to be, the first artist in this line that Europe can boast of." The level of execution seen on the present binding is simply breathtaking, and is only exceeded in impressiveness by the preternatural condition of the volume.

WorldCat list only 5 copies in institutional libraries, we know of no other copies currently on the market and auction records show only one copy since 1978. A concise contemporary history of King Henry IV, &#147;le bon Roi Henri&#148;, published within months of his death. Although he was regarded as a King of kindness, compassion, and good humor, and was popular with his people, he had been the target of several murder attempts. On the 14th of May in 1610, King Henry IV was assassinated in Paris by a fanatically passionate Catholic, François Ravaillac, who stabbed the king to death while he rode in his coach. Henry was buried at the Saint Denis Basilica. Henry&#39;s widow, Marie de Médici, served as Regent to their 9-year-old son, Louis XIII, until 1617. Very little seems to be known of the author, Edmund Skory, other than the fact that he had a rather abusive wife. She is rumored to have once even thrown him out of a window. In his will he left a considerable sum to his wife&#146;s servant, no doubt as a reward for years of service.

Fine copy in nice contemporary binding. ---- <br><br> NLM/Krivatsy 2201; Waller 1810, see Choulant-Frank 224 (dating the second edition 1622 in error). - RARE SECOND EDITION of Casserius&#39; second important contribution to the comparative anatomy not only of the ear and the vocal organs, as in his work of 1600/01, but also of the other four sense organs and especially of the EYE. The 12 plates pertaining to the ear are the same as those of Casserius&#39; earlier work; they constitute "the first accurate pictorial presentation of the internal ear" (Lyle M. Sellers, Annals of Otology, LXVIII, No. 3, Sept. 1959). Those dealing with the other four sense organs are new. Among them, in the especially important section dealing with the EYE and VISION (pp. 257--346) are the first pictorial representations of the conjunctival glands, later known as the Meibomian glands (cf. Garrison-Morton 1481). All the plates, according to Choulant-Frank, "are done with unusual care and are anatomically exact." Casserius&#39; anatomy of the sense organs is of great importance in medical history, since for the first time he adds to a complete account of each human organ a full study of the same organ in various animal forms..

        Maiorica Insula

      Venecia 1596-1610 - Grabado calcográfico, 26x 39 cms (incluyendo margenes),orientación este-oeste que presenta una imagen imagen positivada con la ciudad de Mallorca a la izquierda. Blanco y negro. Muy buen estado de conservación. Mapa procedente de un atlas italiano del grupo de "Lafreri" que se compilaron entre mediados del s XVI y principios del s XVII. Estos atlas son la culminación de uno de los mas brillantes e interesantes periodos de la historia de la cartografía y son de enorme rareza( Tooley). Roma y Venecia eran los centros de impresión y hoy dia se conocen algo mas de 60 ejemplares,la mayoría de estos en colecciones institucionales( en España hay dos ejemplares en la Biblioteca Real y uno en la BN de Madrid). Los atlas Lafreri eran usados como regalo diplomático en la época y es por ello que la mayoría se encontraban en colecciones reales o principescas. El autor es Donato Rasciotti que basandose en el mapa de Fernando Bertelli publicado hacia 1550 (no borra el nombre del autor y lo mantiene en la cartela), modifica algunos detalles de la plancha. De este autor, Rasciotti, se sabe muy poco y era hasta hace poco desconocido para la historia de la cartografía.Se sabe que estuvo activo en Venecia desde finales del s XVI y comienzos del XVII como impresor de obras menores pero no existía constancia de su labor como impresor de mapas.Este mapa es una rareza y en un estado de conservación impecable. De esta variante no existe ejemplar alguno conocido en colecciones publicas españolas. Ref: Meurer "The Strabo Atlas": rare map being a late variant on bertelli´s map of Mallorca. This map comes from Lafreri atlases( Italian atlases bound to order) one of the most rare items of the cartographical production during the XVI century. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Recherche et Advis sur le corps de S. Iaques le Maieur. A l¿occasion d¿un Oratoire tres antien du mesme Sainct qui est en l¿eglise de St maurille d¿Angers.

      Antoine Hernaut, Angers 1610 - (14) ff including engraved title page by Thomas de Leu, 124 pp. Bound in contemporary vellum, title page in fine impression and text very crisply printed, an excellent copy. Extremely rare first and sole edition of this work of polemical antiquarianism, seeking to prove that the remains of St. James the Apostle are not buried at Santiago de Compostella, as Europe¿s most pious pilgrims had believed since the 9th century, but rather in the vaults of the chapel of St. Maurille, Angers (subsequently destroyed in 1791). An interesting and exceptionally rare example of Counter-Reformation antiquarianism, in which archaeology and considerable erudition is enrolled in the service of confessional, political or material interests. Imagine the result if the theory turned out to be correct¿or even plausible: the medieval citadel of Angers, by the 17th century a provincial backwater in the Loire, would have been elevated to the third most important pilgrimmage destination in Europe¿after Jerusalem and Rome. Menard relates that at the Holy Synod held in Angers in 1583 it was decided to open a mysterious tomb beneath the Chapel of St. Maurille, a 5th century bishop of Angers. As his work goes on to prove in detail, the tomb evidently belonged to none other than St. James the Greater, among the first apostles of Christ and traditionally held to have been buried at Santiago de Compostella in Northern Spain. Verified by local ecclesiastics, the discovery elicited much joy and celebration by the inhabitants of the provincial capital of Angers. Menard reveals the complex train of events which lead to Spain¿s false claim over St. James¿ relics. The apostle¿s grave was lost, then claimed by the Spanish under the authority of Pope Leo III: Menard gives evidence that this claim was based on false evidence, drawing on, for example, a MS in the Library of St Benoit-sur-Loire. Menard then moves on to his next logical contention: that Angers is the true resting place of St. James. Evidence in support of this ranges from the saint¿s ¿image¿ at the foot of the mysterious tomb to the mosaic surrounding it which undoubtedly dates from deep antiquity. Images of the saint are apparently also found on in relief on the chairs of the choir and on a pinion near the chapel entrance. Finally, certain seals found near the tomb (reproduced in woodcut on pp 105-6) are certain to be from the time of Constantine the Great, indicating that the site existed before it was converted into a basilica for St. Maurille (d. ca. 453). Menard concludes that the current site of the Collegial de St. Maurille was originally dedicated to St. James and to St. Benoit, whose relics were ¿accommodated¿ into the current structure. The engraved title page by the esteemed Parisian Thomas de Leu (1560-1612) was commissioned for this book, suggesting an exceptional amount of effort and expense in a provincially printed work. Already at the height of his fame as one of the most important engravers of his era, Leu was best known for his portraits ¿ today highly sought after. The architectural title pictures the traditional badge of Compostella pilgrims (a clam shell) beneath the arms of France. The Inventaire du fonds français (seizième siècle) I.476 lists only three title-pages designed by Le Leu, of which the present is unrecorded, and no other example of Le Leu¿s corpus has any link to Angers. . OCLC records just 4 copies worldwide, none in America (BnF, Mannheim, Berlin, St. Genevieve). We have also located a copy at Angers. * OCLC 492704039 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        De praedictionibus astronomicis, cui titulum fecerunt Quadripartitum, Libri IIII nunc primum ex vetustissimo codice & interprete in lucem editi

      Prague: Caspar Kargesius, 1610. Hardcover. Very Good. 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall. 12 mo., (5)ff., 280 pp., (4) ff., without blank at *6. Bound in 18th c quarter calf and patterned papers over boards, later papers. Ex libris of C.O. Ricatti. Browning and foxing typical of German books of the period, otherwise good. Very rare first edition of this redaction of Ptolemy&#39;s treatise adapting horoscopic astrology to Aristotelian natural philosophy, issued by a Prague publisher who notes in the preface that he has made use of a previously unknown manuscript. The work was very possibly known to Kepler, who was court astronomer and astrologer to Rudolph II in Prague when the work was issued; further, Kepler printed a memorial ode when Rudolph died two years later which the same printer published (Nychthemeron Augustale 1612; Caspar 41) The treatise-known as the Apotelesmatika (&#39;Astrological Outcomes&#39;) or Tetrabiblios/ Quadripartitum (&#39;Four Books&#39;)-was the most popular astrological work of antiquity and had great influence in the Islamic world and medieval Latin West. It provides a systematic overview of the art of astrology, with the first two books focusing on how astronomical data is calculated and the significance of different phenomena, and the last two explaining how this information should be applied to nativities. Ptolemy considered astrology to be rather like medicine: to some degree speculative, but nonetheless based on concrete and pertinent facts. He thus rejects practices such as seeking the numerological significance of names, deeming them arbitrary and bogus. * ICCU / BVEE/040163 (expressly designating *6 as a blank).

        Compendio de las tres gracias de la santa cruzada, subsidio, y escusado, que su Santidad concede a . Don Felipe III. para gastos de la guerra contra infideles, y la pratica dellas, [etc]

      1610 - A handsome, crisp copy of the first edition of this immensely detailed account of how the Spanish imperial administration acted in the spiritual sphere .The Bul[l]a de la santa Cruzada granted by the Pope was a bull granting indulgences to those who fight against the infidel or contribute to the costs of the struggle ( the 'tesoro de la Iglesia militante'). It was first granted to the Spanish monarch in 1509, and was thereafter renewed and its scope enlarged by successive popes. The work gives details of the origins, development and organisation of this, how it was to be preached, how the indulgences were to be offered, the spiritual and financial administration of all connected with the Bulla, together with details of where and how the various editions of the bull were to be produced throughout the Spanish dominions, and to which citieds and towns various 'cedulas' etc. were to be sent, and how worded. There are in part 1 long lists of administrative centres in all of Spanish America, the Filippines etc.The section dealing with the printing of the Bullas is particularly interesting: in Spain they were to be printed in Toledo in the Dominicans monastery of S.Peter the Martyr, and at Valladolid in the monastery of Our Lady de Prado, where Rodrigo Calderon was to be in charge; for the Indies at Seville at the Hieronymite monastery of S.Lorenço, although the actual printing was to be carried out at the Monasterio de Buenavista; for Sicily the press was that at the Jesuit College in Palermo, and the costs were to be born by the Society of Jesus. Details of responsibilities for obtaining type and paper are given- for the printing at Valladolid, Genoa paper is specified 'or some other of equal quality and whiteness'.An account if given (in a royal instruction dated 15 June 1584) of the regulations governing S.Peter's, which clearly apply also to Valladolid: printing was strictly under the control of the monasteries, the prior,and ultimately the Dominican authorities, and precise details are given for the nature of the rooms for printing ang storage, the nature of the locks and keys and the control and surveillance of them, the actual printers and those who assist them (it is clear that the printers come from outside the cloister, and they are forbidden to carry swords or arms (314.22)); when type becomes worn and needs to be replaced, this has tio be done inside the monastery and at a controlled cost, and the matrices and punches are to be kept in the archives of the monastery; the bulls are to be printed well on good paper and ink, and a careful record is to be kept of their production and distribution. Similar (but shorter) regulations are also given for the Emprenta de Sicilia, where, for example (no. 4, cf.no. 12 of the Toledo instrucitons) details are given for very careful control and registration of delivery and release of paper to the printers.The title-page has an engraving which incorporates cartographic, heraldic, scripturaland historical motifs, at the mid centre being the cross and the message given to the emperor Constantine 'In hoc signo vinces'.Perez de Lara was, as he tells us in the preface, a Spanish lawyer. He worked in the royal courts at Lima,and published in 1608 in Madrid De anniversariis et capellanis, a work on canon law (reprinted 4 times) and an interesting work on the legal status of the very young and the old , Valladolid, 1629 (once reprinted)This work was reprinted by itself in Lyons (P.Chevalier, 1672;BNF & ONB) and three times - in 1733 (Devillle & Chalmette) and 1757 (de Tournes), and 1768 in Madrid (A.Perez de Soto) - as part of Opera omnia).Palau 221236;Medina (BHA) 561; Alden 610/83.

Ferdinando Pulton (1536-1618), a Cambridge scholar of Christ&#39;s College, was admitted to Lincoln&#39;s Inn in 1559 but as a Roman Catholic he was never called to the bar. He employed himself chiefly in editing the statutes and was the first private person to do so. His compilation of statute law consisted of five major works: An Abstract of All the Penal Statutes which be General (1577), A kalender, or table, comprehending the effect of all the statutes that have been made and put in print (1606), Collection of Statutes Repealed and Not Repealed (1608), A Collection of Sundry Statutes Frequent in Use (1618), and The Statutes at Large (1618). He believed that by publishing the law he would educate people in it. The treatise is the first major comprehensive work on English criminal law and offences written in English.

First published in 1609, De Pace Regis et Regni took his earlier works as the starting point for a comprehensive overview of criminal law. Holdsworth, who holds this work in high regard, observes that it was only the second title devoted to the subject. The first, Staunford&#39;s Les Plees del Coron, was published posthumously in 1560.

        Of the Citie of God: With the Learned Comments of Jo. Lod. Vives

      London: George Eld, 1610. First English edition of the author&#39;s monumental work. Folio, contemporary full brown calf. Front and rear panels double-ruled in gilt, gilt floral cornerpieces, spine double-ruled in gilt. Binding shows some wear with some ink markings and notations. Overall a very good copy of this scarce and important work, rare in the contemporary calf. One of the great cornerstones in the history of Christian thought, The City of God is vital to an understanding of modern Western society and how it came into being. Begun in A.D. 413, the book&#39;s initial purpose was to refute the charge that Christianity was to blame for the fall of Rome (which had occurred just three years earlier). Indeed, Augustine produced a wealth of evidence to prove that paganism bore within itself the seeds of its own destruction. However, over the next thirteen years that it took to complete the work, the brilliant ecclesiastic proceeded to his larger theme: a cosmic interpretation of history in terms of the struggle between good and evil. By means of his contrast of the earthly and heavenly cities--the one pagan, self-centered, and contemptuous of God and the other devout, God-centered, and in search of grace--Augustine explored and interpreted human history in relation to eternity.

        Cartas Morales y Consolatorias del Senor de Narveza. Traduzidas en lengua Castellana por Madama Francisca de Passier. De nuevo corregidas y anadidas de siete Cartas, traduzidas por Cesar Oudin, Secretario Interprete de su Magestad Christianissima

      Paris, Anthoine du Breuil, 1610. - in-8. 4ff. 152ff. 7ff. Demi veau, dos à nerfs orné (Reliure moderne dans le goût de l'époque). Seconde édition espagnole, la première complète, des Lettres de Nerveze. En 1605 était parue à Thonon-les-Bains (Savoie) la première traduction en espagnol des "Epitres Morales" du poète français Antoine de Nerveze (1570-1624), secrétaire du roi Henri IV. La traductrice était une femme connue pour ses talents, Françoise de Passier. Cette femme cultivée disparut prématurément sans avoir pu terminer la traduction et par conséquent cette première édition de Thonon-les-Bains ne contenait pas la totalité du texte original. Aujourd'hui d'une extrême rareté, il s'agit de l'un des premiers livres imprimés dans cette petite ville de Savoie. Peu après la mort de sa traductrice, Nerveze prit l'initiative d'éditer à nouveau son livre en espagnol et il confia la réalisation de la présente édition, ainsi que la traduction du fragment manquant, au traducteur d'espagnol du roi Henri IV César Oudin, qui devint peu après le premier traducteur de Don Quichotte en français. Dans la préface rédigée pour cette seconde édition, adressée à "Don Diego Pimentel, Conde de Gelves, del Consejo Supremo de Guerra de su Magestad Catholica y su Castellano del Castillo de Milan", Oudin expose les circonstances de sa mise en chantier: "despues de la muerte de ladicha Dama no quiso el susodicho de Narveza que quedase la obra imperfecta y por esta causa aviendo el cobrado un ejemplar de la impresion de Tonon comunicomelo para que cotejando la traduccion Espanola con el original Francés yo mirase si acaso o por descuido los impressores huvieran dexado passar algunas faltas y asi lo repassé con la mayor diligencia y cuydado que pude, segun mis ordinarias ocupaciones me dieron lugar a ello, tambien acabé de traduzir las Cinco Cartas que quedavan del libro, juntamente con otras dos que anadio el Autor". Oudin évoque également dans ce texte liminaire "Madama de Passier, Dama en verdad digna de mucha gloria y alabanza por su raro ingenio y levantado espiritu y por aver sido dotada de tantas y tan excelentes virtudes, como claramente se conoce en esta traduccion que ella hizo de Frances en Espanol de las Cartas Morales y Consolatorias del Senor Narveza". Texte bilingue, espagnol et français, sur deux colonnes. Bel exemplaire dans une fine reliure moderne dans le goût de l'époque. Aucun exemplaire dans les bibliothèques américaines (cf. NUC).

        BASILICA CHYMICA continens philosophicam propria laborum experientia confirmatam descriptionem et usum remediorum chymicorum selectissimorum e` lumine gratiae & naturae desumptorum

      Colonia Allobrogum (Geneva), no name, Venundantur in Officina Fabriana, 1610.. In fine additus est eiusdem autoris tractatus novus de signaturis rerum internis. Very early edition 1610 (first published in Frankfurt in 1608), 2 parts in 1 volume, the tract "De signaturis rerum internis," has a separate half-title page and pagination, but the register is consecutive throughout. Latin text, small 8vo, approximately 160 x 100 mm, 6¼ x 23¾ inches, engraved device of Sebastian Gryphius (griffin) on first title page with motto "Virtute Duce", no printer named, a few head- and tailpieces and decorated initials, 2 large woodcuts (pages 319 and 323), and lists of alchemical signs and symbols on KK8-LL1, pages:(40), 1-364, (60); (14), 1-92, (36), collation: ¶-¶¶8, ¶¶¶4, A-MM8, NN4 (-NN4 which is a blank), bound in full modern calf, raised bands to spine, gilt titled black morocco label, top edges brown, new endpapers. The preliminary pages contain "De vera antiqua philosophica medicina elegia" by Ulrich Bollinger, found at the end of the volume in other editions. Title page and following 12 leaves very slightly browned at edges, tiny worm track in text from ¶5-A1, another starts on C1 and continues to D8 with partial loss of some letters, all easily legible, top corner missing on 6 leaves of prelims, no loss of printed area, small chip to fore-edge margin of ¶5 due to paper flaw, no loss, A1 repaired neatly in inner margin, L8r (page 175) is misprinted so that the fore-edge margin is very wide and the inner margin is not visible, all still easily legible, occasional very light margin water staining, occasional very slight browning. A very good copy of a rare early edition. The editions printed at Geneva do not have the engraved title page that is found in the Frankfurt editions. There is another edition printed in Geneva in 1610 which has the same title page as ours with the Gryphius device but underneath Coloniae Allobrogum states "excudebat Paulus Marcellus" with no mention of Officina Fabriana. Otherwise the text is printed as ours. Oswald Croll [c. 1560 - 1609] was a professor of medicine and alchemy at the University of Marburg in Hesse, Germany. A strong proponent of alchemy and of using chemistry in medicine, he attempted to influence thinkers of his day towards viewing chemistry and alchemy as two separate fields. He published one volume in 1609, the year of his death, containing two books "Basilica Chymica" and "De signatura rerum" plus a long preface in which he expounds the ideas of Paracelsus to whom he was devoted. Basilica Chymica is a comprehensive summary of his researches, methods of preparation, and studies into chemical medicine or iatrochemistry. He pushes for the understanding and recognition of chemical compounds and the medicinal value of herbs and other processes first advanced by Paracelsus. It also discussed matters such as compound remedies, chemical organisation and acted as an introduction to chemistry in later years. The Tractatus novus de signaturis covered the relation of alchemy and chemistry to other fields of science, especially botany, suggesting the use of the doctrine of signatures to determine the medical property of plants.

        De praedictionibus astronomicis, cui titulum fecerunt Quadripartitum, Libri IIII nunc primum ex vetustissimo codice & interprete in lucem editi

      Caspar Kargesius Prague: Caspar Kargesius, 1610. Hardcover. Very Good. 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall. 12 mo., (5)ff., 280 pp., (4) ff., without blank at *6. Bound in 18th c quarter calf and patterned papers over boards, later papers. Ex libris of C.O. Ricatti. Browning and foxing typical of German books of the period, otherwise good.Very rare first edition of this redaction of Ptolemy's treatise adapting horoscopic astrology to Aristotelian natural philosophy, issued by a Prague publisher who notes in the preface that he has made use of a previously unknown manuscript. The work was very possibly known to Kepler, who was court astronomer and astrologer to Rudolph II in Prague when the work was issued; further, Kepler printed a memorial ode when Rudolph died two years later which the same printer published (Nychthemeron Augustale 1612; Caspar 41)The treatise-known as the Apotelesmatika ('Astrological Outcomes') or Tetrabiblios/ Quadripartitum ('Four Books')-was the most popular astrological work of antiquity and had great influence in the Islamic world and medieval Latin West. It provides a systematic overview of the art of astrology, with the first two books focusing on how astronomical data is calculated and the significance of different phenomena, and the last two explaining how this information should be applied to nativities. Ptolemy considered astrology to be rather like medicine: to some degree speculative, but nonetheless based on concrete and pertinent facts. He thus rejects practices such as seeking the numerological significance of names, deeming them arbitrary and bogus.* ICCU / BVEE/040163 (expressly designating *6 as a blank).

        Recherche et Advis sur le corps de S. Iaques le Maieur. A l'occasion d'un Oratoire tres antien du mesme Sainct qui est en l'eglise de St maurille d'Angers

      Antoine Hernaut Angers: Antoine Hernaut, 1610. Hardcover. Near Fine. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. (14) ff including engraved title page by Thomas de Leu, 124 pp. Bound in contemporary vellum, title page in fine impression and text very crisply printed, an excellent copy. Extremely rare first and sole edition of this work of polemical antiquarianism, seeking to prove that the remains of St. James the Apostle are not buried at Santiago de Compostella, as Europe's most pious pilgrims had believed since the 9th century, but rather in the vaults of the chapel of St. Maurille, Angers (subsequently destroyed in 1791). An interesting and exceptionally rare example of Counter-Reformation antiquarianism, in which archaeology and considerable erudition is enrolled in the service of confessional, political or material interests. Imagine the result if the theory turned out to be correct-or even plausible: the medieval citadel of Angers, by the 17th century a provincial backwater in the Loire, would have been elevated to the third most important pilgrimmage destination in Europe-after Jerusalem and Rome.Menard relates that at the Holy Synod held in Angers in 1583 it was decided to open a mysterious tomb beneath the Chapel of St. Maurille, a 5th century bishop of Angers. As his work goes on to prove in detail, the tomb evidently belonged to none other than St. James the Greater, among the first apostles of Christ and traditionally held to have been buried at Santiago de Compostella in Northern Spain. Verified by local ecclesiastics, the discovery elicited much joy and celebration by the inhabitants of the provincial capital of Angers. Menard reveals the complex train of events which lead to Spain's false claim over St. James' relics. The apostle's grave was lost, then claimed by the Spanish under the authority of Pope Leo III: Menard gives evidence that this claim was based on false evidence, drawing on, for example, a MS in the Library of St Benoit-sur-Loire. Menard then moves on to his next logical contention: that Angers is the true resting place of St. James. Evidence in support of this ranges from the saint's 'image' at the foot of the mysterious tomb to the mosaic surrounding it which undoubtedly dates from deep antiquity. Images of the saint are apparently also found on in relief on the chairs of the choir and on a pinion near the chapel entrance. Finally, certain seals found near the tomb (reproduced in woodcut on pp 105-6) are certain to be from the time of Constantine the Great, indicating that the site existed before it was converted into a basilica for St. Maurille (d. ca. 453). Menard concludes that the current site of the Collegial de St. Maurille was originally dedicated to St. James and to St. Benoit, whose relics were 'accommodated' into the current structure.The engraved title page by the esteemed Parisian Thomas de Leu (1560-1612) was commissioned for this book, suggesting an exceptional amount of effort and expense in a provincially printed work. Already at the height of his fame as one of the most important engravers of his era, Leu was best known for his portraits - today highly sought after. The architectural title pictures the traditional badge of Compostella pilgrims (a clam shell) beneath the arms of France. The Inventaire du fonds français (seizième siècle) I.476 lists only three title-pages designed by Le Leu, of which the present is unrecorded, and no other example of Le Leu's corpus has any link to Angers. ........................................................................ OCLC records just 4 copies worldwide, none in America (BnF, Mannheim, Berlin, St. Genevieve). We have also located a copy at Angers.* OCLC 492704039

      Lyon, 1610 [Tit. des 5. Teils der Histoire] - 1611 (Edicts. Dernière ed.). 2 Bde. in 1 Bd. geb, wobei der 1. Bd. aus 5 Teilen (Büchern) besteht und der 5. Teil ein eigenes Titelbl. enthält.

Teils der "Histoire" (nach S. 128) mit fortfahrender Paginierung von derselben Hand eingefügt worden (der Hinweis dazu steht bereits am Vorsatzbl. d. 1. Teils), welche die (schon damals!) fehlenden Texteile vom Epitre handschriftlich wiedergeben. Adams M-901 (EA. v. 1594) - Die "Histoire des derniers troubles" beginnt mit der Herrschaft der Tres-Chrestiens Roys (Francois I, Henry II, Francois II ...) und reicht bis zum Friedensvertrag von Veruins unter Heinrich IV. Den Edicts (alle von Heinrich IV erlassen) folgt Histoire des guerres entre les deux maisons de France et d&#39;Espagne, die mit dem Vertrag von Veruins und dem Tod Philippes II aus Spanien 1598 endeten. Die Erstausgabe des damals schon in dieser Gestalt verfassten Werkes erschien in Lyon 1594-95. Laut Graesse ist der 5. Teil der "Histoire" nicht von Mathieu (vgl. Graesse IV, 443). Hauser schreibt hingegen, daß es zahlreiche nicht autorisierte Eingriffe fremder Hand gab (vgl. Hauser 1448). In einem handschriftlichen Vermerk (von alter Hand) auf eingefügten Vorsatzbll. wird vorl. Buch Michel HURAULT de l&#39;Hospital zugeschrieben, einem Enkel des Chanceliers Michel de l&#39;Hospital von Belesbat und Faÿ, der ihm seine Bibliothek vererbte. Die Verbindung zwischen Henri IV und dem Hause Belesbat ist belegt durch seine häufigen Besuche (die noch zu Navarras Zeiten begannen), und die nicht ohne einen gewissen Einfluß der schönen Henriette d&#146;Entragues standen. Dies könnte zu der Annahme führen, Hurault de l&#39;Hospital hätte unter Pseudonym geschrieben. Auch Hauser belegt die Freundschaft zwischen Pierre Mathieu (1563-1621) und Heinrich IV, zu dessen Historiographen er 1594 ernannt wurde. Die im Buch enthaltenen handschriftlichen Hinweise auf Michel HURAULT de l&#39;Hospital geben erneut ein Rätsel über die Autorenschaft dieses nicht uninteressanten Werkes auf.

        Certaine Errors of Navigation with The Division of the Whole Art of Navigation

      London - Felix Kingston, 1610 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Bound in pig skinThe title page is missing. Publication details are taken from the ESTC, No. S95920. The full title of this work is given as, Certaine errors in navigation, detected and corrected by Edw: Wright with manyadditions that were not in the former edition as appeareth in the next pages -ESTC. The division of the whole art of navigation, a translation of Compendio de la arte de navegar by Rodrigo de Zamorano, has separate pagination and register. With &#39;An Addition touching the variation of the Compasse&#39; to the rear. This copy is missing the map as usual (the last copy sold with the map - the Macclesfield copy sold for 170,000 at auction)Four leaves, 441-444 and 453-456 are missing. With an armorial bookplate for Queen&#39;s College, Oxford to the front pastedown, with a &#39;Sold by Order&#39; ink stamp. Edward Wright, d. 1615,was an English mathematician and cartographer. The impetus for Wright&#39;s publication of the first edition of Certaine Errors came from his outrage at two apparent cases of plagiarism. A well-regarded navigator, Abraham Kendall, died at sea (1596) in possession of a manuscript copy of Wright&#39;s work, and this text, retrieved and brought to London, was taken to be Kendall&#39;s own, until it was passed to Wright for his review. At roughly the same time the cartographer Jodocus Hondius (15631612), who was deeply chagrined upon the discovery of his borrowing, used Wright&#39;s methods without acknowledgement in one of his maps -ODNB. Condition: A pleasingly original and unrestored copy. The text-block binding is generally tight and firm although the cords are exposed in several places. The inner hinges have failed and the text-block has come away from the case. The &#39;Compasse variation&#39; pages to the rear are held by the cords only. There is wear to the extremities, including bumping and rubbing with some small closed tears and discolouration. There are small two holes to the frontboard and a score mark to thespine. Internally the pages have slightage toning as usualwith occasional handling marks and spots. The first and lasttwo leaves have slight chips and small closed tears. There are a few repairs to margins of pages. There are Queen&#39;s College, Oxford, small ink stamps to the title page and the last page. There are ink inscriptions to the front pastedown andverso of the front blank. Overall the condition is fair with a good interior. An important and scarce work..

Second edition, corrected and enlarged, of the most important and most famous English book on the art of navigation, "a book that set the seal on the supremacy of the English in the theory and practice of the art of navigation at this time. It contained a brilliant summary of all the chief contemporary practices of navigation together with a critical examination of their faults, and either the actual means for eliminating them or else sound guidance on the measures necessary to do away with them... "Wright&#39;s Certaine Errors was so packed with learning, was such an able survey of navigation practice at the close of the sixteenth century, and by its chart projection introduced such order out of the former cartographical confusion, that it and his other work merit fuller attention than can be devoted to it in a survey of this scope."-Waters, The Art of Navigation in England, pp. 219-20. The first edition, which appeared in 1599 and is a famously rare book, caused a "revolution in navigational science, which for the first time [Wright] based firmly on mathematical principles...His fame chiefly rests on his tables of the construction of maps using &#39;Mercator&#39;s projection&#39;...Wright also formulated instructions for the use of the compass and the cross-staff, made improvements in navigational instruments and gave tables of magnetic declinations."-Printing & the Mind of Man 106-(1st ed. of 1599). The second edition is important: "What made this edition...into a navigation manual suitable for all seamen was the inclusion [for the first time] of a translation made by a friend, of a standard Spanish navigation manual of 1588, Zamorano&#39;s Compendio del Arte de Navigar."-Waters, p. 317. Like most copies of this edition (save for the Macclesfield copy which sold for 170,000 pounds in 2007), our copy lacks the two large engraved maps, one showing Cumberland&#39;s route to and from the Azores and the other the world map by William Kip. Shirley, in his Mapping of the World, 272, speculates that its great size and possible incompleteness could explain why the world map is rarely found bound with the book. A fine and crisp copy. Rare with or without the maps. &#10087; NSTC 26020. .
