Great Britain; James I, King
1610. First Edition of King James's "Book of Bounty," A Landmark in the History of Patent Law [Great Britain]. James I [1566-1625], King of England and Ireland. A Declaration of His Maiesties Royall Pleasure, In What Sort He Thinketh Fit to Enlarge, Or Reserve Himselfe in Matter of Bountie. London: Imprinted by Robert Barker, 1610 [i.e. 1611]. [iii], 29 [3] pp. Lacking initial leaf, which is blank except for signature-mark "A" in a mortised ornament. Quarto (8-1/2" x 6-1/2"). Stab-stitched pamphlet, untrimmed edges. Moderate soiling to exterior, some edgewear, light browning, faint dampstaining to upper and lower margins, occasional neat underlining in contemporary ink, brief early annotations to a few leaves and head of title page. $1,500. * First edition. Known as the Book of Bounty, this declaration clarified the confusing common-law precedents concerning monopolies and patents established during the Elizabethan period. It outlawed monopolies, but preserved the rights of inventors. It also restricted the King's power to grant patents. A landmark in the history of patent law, it established a precedent that inspired the 1624 Statute of Monopolies, which, as Holdsworth notes, established "the basis upon which our modern patent law still to some extent rests." The year 1610 is given according to Lady Day dating, the pre-1752 English practice in official business of beginning the year on March 25, the date of Annunciation. Holdsworth, A History of English Law IV:353. English Short-Title Catalogue S121223.

Einzige Ausgabe einer seiner seltensten Schriften, hier in einem Exemplar aus der Bibliothek des Medizinhistorikers Walter Pagel. - Libavius beschreibt in vorliegendem Band die Entstehung der Welt aus theologisch-philosophischer Sicht und orientiert sich dabei am Sechstagewerk des biblischen Schöpfungsberichtes. It "deals with six days of Creation; pillars of Seth; aqua sicca = mercury; transmutation of plants; rejects the divining rod (de Virgula divina theses, mentioning Agricola); rejects astrology; accepts the barnacle goose" (Partington). Die Zwischentitel behandeln, neben der Entstehung der geschaffenen Dinge, die Erschaffung der Engel, das geschaffene Firmament und die Teilung des Wassers, die Trennung des Meeres oder der unteren Wasser von der Erde, die Anfänge der Pflanzen und der mit ihnen zusammenhängenden Mineralien sowie ihre natürliche Beschaffenheit, die Erschaffung der Lichter und der Sterne, die Erschaffung der Fische und Vögel, das Atemholen der Fische und Insekten, die Erschaffung der Lebewesen aus Erde und die bewundernde Erschaffung des Menschen. In einem umfangreichen Anhang setzt sich Libavius mit den satanischen Lehren auseinander, durch welche die Welt unrein geworden ist. Der Band enthält auch seine Polemik gegen die Astrologie. - Der Philosoph und Arzt Libavius (1555-1616), ein Universalgelehrter seiner Zeit, wurde besonders als Mitbegründer der modernen Chemie berühmt. - Pa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Teixeira, Pedro, [Mir Khwand and Turan Shah].
Antwerp, Hieronymus Verdussen, 1610. 8vo. (8), 384, (8), 115 [but: 215], (17) pp. With a woodcut on title-page, a woodcut initial and some woodcut tailpieces. 17th century marbled calf with gilt label to richly gilt spine, red edges. First edition of a "history of the kings of Persia compiled from the Persian histories of Mir Khwand and Turan Shah" (Howgego), in the original Spanish, by the Portuguese merchant and adventurer Pedro Teixeira (1563-1645?). It is one of the earliest European sources to mention Qatar, relating to the pearl fishery in the region: "The pearl fishery at Bahren begins some years in June, but generally in July, an lasts all that month and August They generally go a fishing to Katar, a port on the coast of Arabia, 10 leagues to the southward of the Island Bahren. As soon an oyster is brought up, they open it, and take out the pearl. The pearls of this sea surpass all others in goodness and weight " (English translation). The work is divided into three parts. The first, which is the largest, deals with the kings of Persia. It is a summarized translation of the voluminous Rawzat al-Safa by the Persian historian Mir Khwand (ca. 1434-1498), and is probably the first translation of the text into an European language. The second part is a translation of the Ayyibud emir Turan Shah's (d. 1180) chronicle of the kings of Hormuz, a text which is today only extant in translations. Though Teixeira's adventures started in 1586, he reached Hormuz in 1593, where he resided for several years to study its history. Both parts contain a chronological account of the king … [Click Below for Full Description]

Saint Augustine
George Eld, London, 1610. First edition in English of Augustine's monumental work. Translated by John Healey. Folio, bound in full contemporary brown calf. Large woodcut printer's device on title (McKerrow 375). Decorative woodcut head-pieces and decorative and woodcut initials, including three twelve-line initials. In near fine condition. 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'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.

The first and longest "Panegyricke" compares Vaughan to King David, King Arthur, and places him among the pantheon of pagan gods. It was written by the "very voluminous and somewhat tedious" (DNB) John Davies of Hereford, poet and writing-master who taught many pupils from noble families and courted the patronage of Mary Sidney, Countess of Pembroke, her brother the Earl, Robert Sidney, and Lucy, Countess of Bedford. Davies was best known for his "Scourge of Folly", a collection of epigrams satirising popular writers of the day including Shakespeare, Jonson, and Nashe. Also included is a poem by Davies' son, Sylvanus. The author's introduction to the Earl of Pembroke takes up almost half of the v … [Click Below for Full Description]

Decorative title cartouche. - vita of the artist: Frederik de Wit (1610 ? 1698) His Atlas began to appear around 1662 and by 1671 included anywhere from 17 to 151 maps each. In the 1690s he began to use a new title page "Atlas Maior" but continued to use his old title page. His atlas of the Low Countries first published in 1667,was named Nieuw Kaertboeck van de XVII Nederlandse Provinciën and contained 14 to 25 maps. Frederik de Wit quickly expanded upon his first small folio atlas which contained mostly maps printed from plates that he had acquired, to an atlas with 27 maps engraved by or for him. By 1671 he was publishing a large folio atlas with as many as 100 maps.

In ca.1675 Frederik de Wit released a new nautical atlas. The charts in this atlas replaced the earlier charts from 1664 that are known today in only four bound examples and a few loose copies.

(6) Ff, 2096,170 Columns. A few scatered brownspots. Internally clean. ¶ Second edition of Kahl's Law Dictionnary, put on the "Index" of prohibited books. "His Kahl) best known work is Lexicon iuridicum, appearing for the first time in 1600 (Frankfurt). The text combines original work with compilations drawn from the writings of earlier lexicographers and scholars and substantial annotations. The Lexicon proved to be both serviceable and influential - John Cowell credited Kahl's text with his inspiration to undertake his own law dictionary (Interpreter, 1607).Because Kahl was a Protestant, this text ended up on the famous Index prohibitorum in 1659. In spite of this prohibition, at least 14 editions were printed between 1600 and 1673, six of them after the initial decree".(Law Dictionary Collection - University of Texas at Austin).

Scaliger, Joseph Justus.
Paris: Hieronymum Drovart, 1610. Joseph Justus Scaliger (1540-1609) was a French religious leader and scholar, known for expanding the area of classical history from Greek and Ancient Roman history to include Persian, Babylonian, Jewish, and ancient Egyptian history. He published several academic works, including De emendatione temporum (1558), a reconstruction of EusebiusÕs Chronicon, a significant work in the area of ancient chronology, which he printed in his Thesaurus Temporum (1606). Throughout the course of his life, Scaliger had made many enemies, including the Jesuits, as a result of having refuted some of the historical documents that they had relied upon. His claim of Veronese ancestry was publically attacked by Gasper Scioppius and published Scaliger Hypobolimaeus (1601), debunking his claim to be a La Scala descendant. This work damaged ScaligerÕs reputation permanently. The present work includes Diatriba de Decimis in lege Dei, De Thesi quadam Chronologia, Iudicium, Animadversiones in Cyclopem Euripidis, and Poemata qu¾dam & Epigrammata antehac non edita Quarto. [28], 582, [8] pp. Contemporary stiff vellum with yapp edges, spine lettered in manuscript. Binding extremities slightly toned with a few small stains. Lacks front flyleaf. Minor foxing, intermittent light toning. A few small holes in leaves, occasionally touching text, but not affecting legibility. Contemporary ink corrections to pagination on a few leaves.

NERVEZE (Antoine de).
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 Francé … [Click Below for Full Description]

AUGUSTINE, Aurelius Saint
George Eld, 1610. First edition in English Woodcut device on title. Contemporary calf rebacked with original backstrip laid down, both covers stamped with central gilt decoration; first two leaves repaired on edges, minor browning to fore-edges, otherwise a very nice copy with the ownership signature on title of Dan Baker dated 1822 as well as inscription that the book was "purchased from Dan Baker by J.M. Moore" dated 1824. First edition in English, translated by John Healey from the Latin version edited by Juan Luis Vives (1492-1540), the famed Spanish scholar who was encouraged by his friend Erasmus to work on Augustine's (354-430) great treatise. Vives's De causis has been compared to Bacon's Organon. Healey (d. ca. 1609) was unable to correct the printing of his translation before his death as the dedication to the Earl of Pembroke by Thomas Thorpe (printer of Shakespeare's Sonnets) implies. Thus Healey's translation remained the sole English version until Dr. Dods's translation of 1871, and is one of the most enduring examples of Elizabethan prose. De civitate Dei influenced world history from the middle ages to the end of the eighteenth century, and its power is still present, for example, in international law. It was described by Voltaire as the first contribution to a philosophy of history. The first edition (in Latin) was printed by Sweynheym and Pannartz at Subiaco in 1467.

Antwerp, Hieronymus Verdussen, 1610. 8vo.

First edition of a "history of the kings of Persia compiled from the Persian histories of Mir Khwand and Turan Shah" (Howgego), in the original Spanish, by the Portuguese merchant and adventurer Pedro Teixeira (1563-1645?). It is one of the earliest European sources to mention Qatar, relating to the pearl fishery in the region: "The pearl fishery at Bahren begins some years in June, but generally in July, an lasts all that month and August They generally go a fishing to Katar, a port on the coast of Arabia, 10 leagues to the southward of the Island Bahren. As soon an oyster is brought up, they open it, and take out the pearl. The pearls of this sea surpass all others in goodness and weight " (English translation). The work is divided into three parts. The first, which is the largest, deals with the kings of Persia. It is a summarized translation of the voluminous Rawzat al-Safa by the Persian historian Mir Khwand (ca. 1434-1498), and is probably the first translation of the text into an European language. The second part is a translation of the Ayyibud emir Turan Shah's (d. 1180) chronicle of the kings of Hormuz, a text which is today only extant in translations. Though Teixeira's adventures started in 1586, he reached Hormuz in 1593, where he resided for several years to study its history. Both parts contain a chronological account of the king … [Click Below for Full Description]

AUGUSTINE St.
George Eld, 1610. FIRST EDITION thus. Folio pp.(xx) 921 (xi) first and last blank. [A⁴, ²A⁶, B-4I⁶, 4K⁴] Roman letter, some Italic. Woodcut printer's device on title, large historiated woodcut initials, grotesque woodcut headpieces and ornaments, bibliographical note of 'E. H. Barker' on pastedown, autograph 'J Treacher' 1839 below. Title a little dusty at head, light age yellowing, a few tiny single wormholes in lower margin of opening leaves the odd marginal spot. A very good copy, crisp and clean in handsome contemporary English calf, covers bordered with a triple blind rule, strapwork arabesque gilt stamped at centres, spine with raised bands, expertly rebacked, original spine laid down, gilt ornament in compartments, in a green baize lined wooden case. First edition of the first English translation of St. Augustine's 'City of God', the first comprehensive survey of human history and the original text of that new science which Voltaire named 'the philosophy of history'. It is designed as a great apologetic treatise in vindication of the Christian Church, which Augustine conceived as rising in the form of a new civic order on the ruins of the Roman Empire. It was begun in 413 and appeared in portions until 426. The first five books deal with the polytheism of Rome, the next five with Greek philosophy especially the Platonists and neo-Platonists, and the last twelve the history of time and eternity. Many modern concepts of the just society in economics, and of the just ruler in politics, derive from the work which presents history as having the goal of the salvation of ma … [Click Below for Full Description]

Einzige Ausgabe einer seiner seltensten Schriften, hier in einem Exemplar aus der Bibliothek des Medizinhistorikers Walter Pagel. - Libavius beschreibt in vorliegendem Band die Entstehung der Welt aus theologisch-philosophischer Sicht und orientiert sich dabei am Sechstagewerk des biblischen Schöpfungsberichtes. It "deals with six days of Creation; pillars of Seth; aqua sicca = mercury; transmutation of plants; rejects the divining rod (de Virgula divina theses, mentioning Agricola); rejects astrology; accepts the barnacle goose" (Partington). Die Zwischentitel behandeln, neben der Entstehung der geschaffenen Dinge, die Erschaffung der Engel, das geschaffene Firmament und die Teilung des Wassers, die Trennung des Meeres oder der unteren Wasser von der Erde, die Anfänge der Pflanzen und der mit ihnen zusammenhängenden Mineralien sowie ihre natürliche Beschaffenheit, die Erschaffung der Lichter und der Sterne, die Erschaffung der Fische und Vögel, das Atemholen der Fische und Insekten, die Erschaffung der Lebewesen aus Erde und die bewundernde Erschaffung des Menschen. In einem umfangreichen Anhang setzt sich Libavius mit den satanischen Lehren auseinander, durch welche die Welt unrein geworden ist. Der Band enthält auch seine Polemik gegen die Astrologie. - Der Philosoph und Arzt Libavius (1555-1616), ein Universalgelehrter seiner Zeit, wurde besonders als Mitbegründer der modernen Chemie berühmt. - Pa … [Click Below for Full Description]
