      1611. Large 8vo. 2 pp. on double leaf. To an important personage regarding the organization of a horse race or tournament in honour of the Spanish ambassador in Rome: "[...] perche ho molto ben inteso il suo disid[eri]o m'ingegnerò di trattare con quel sig[no]re in modo che V[ostra] S[ignoria] Ill[ustrissi]ma resti servita. Il che farò avvanti la partita del pross[im]o corriere di mercoledi per poterle significar il ritratto. Mi farò anche nascer occasione di divolgar con decoro et senza affettazione il concetto ch'ella mi scrisse, et farello tanto piu volontieri, quanto à me pare che concerna la reputazione di Lei perche cose passate, et per la fama che n'era già discolpata. Quanto al pubblicar la disfida, a me pare che ci dobbiam governare secondo quello che disporrà il s[igno]r Ambasciatore, mass[imamen]te faccendo ella proffessione di havere per honore di S[ua] Ecc[ellenz]a et della s[igno]ra Ambasciatrice intrapreso il Torneo. Nel che non voglio restar di dirli, che stante questo pens[ier]o sarà necess[ar]io far una macchina che habbia intenzione di honorarli loro Ca[sat]o[?] et però in una delle quattro bisognerà mutar pensiero, et soggetto, et trovar cosa che porga manifesta occ[asio]ne di farlo credere che sia fatto per honorargli. Al rimanente della sua lettera non ho che dire senza che quanto ella comanderà sarò pronto di eseguire [...] Passerò ancora col debito silenzio come comanda il particolare della s[igno]ra Duchessa [...]". - The said "Duchessa" is possibly Margherita Gonzaga, widow of Alfonso II. d'Este, Duca di Ferrara. - Slightly browned.

        1612 First Edition Quarto New Testament - KJV - Bible

      The New Testament of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Newly translated out of the original Greek: and with the former translations diligently compared and revised, by his majesties special commandment. Imprinted at London by Robert Barker, printer to the Kings most excellent majesty.A close reprint of the text of the folio of 1611, though obvious mistakes like Mark vii. 4 marge. are corrected. Taking the passages quoted by Scrivener on p. 206 and p. 213 of his book The Authorized Edition, we find that in ever case except one (Luke x. 36) this New Testament agrees with the 1611 edition against that of 1613,11. 11 expertly produced facsimile pagesDarlow and Moule #245

        Historia de la Sagrada Orden de Predicadores en los remotos Reynos de la Etiopia. Valencia, Juan Chrysostomo Garriz, 1611.

      1611. Small 4to (21 x 15 cm). With woodcut arms of the Dominican order (with the IHS and cross covering the centre) on title-page, and a variant version on the last page, and 3 woodcuts in text (2 saints and the Cross). Further with 24 decorated woodcut initials in two series, including 11 repeats. [16], 410, [6] pp. Contemporary gold-tooled mottled calf, each board with the coat of arms of the French Seguier family and with the monogram PSMF (Pierre Seguier and his wife Madeleine Fabry) repeated 6 times on the spine, rebacked (on recessed cords) with original gold-tooled backstrip laid-down, a later spine label (between the 1st and 2nd monogram), the year of publication 1611 at the foot of the spine, later endpapers. First and only edition, in Spanish, of an early work on Ethiopia by the Spanish Dominican monk Luis de Urreta (ca. 1570-1636), who wrote two volumes glorifying his own order's accomplishments in Ethiopia while diminishing those of the Jesuits (his Dominican coat of arms incorporates the IHS with cross, often used by the Jesuits). In the present work, the second of the two, he deals specifically with the Dominican presence in Ethiopia and the history of the Ethiopian saints. Like the first work, the Historia ecclesiastica published in 1610, it is a late example of a stream of geographical fantasies where Ethiopia was presented as the wondrous utopian kingdom of Prester John, and Urreta makes the case for an ancient Dominican presence in the country, arguing that they should thus be given precedence over the Jesuits as Catholic missionaries in that country. On pp. 88-90 it gives the information from a report to Pope Gregory XIII (1502-1585) on two Dominican monks (Blackfriars) from the Alleluya monastery, who entered Mecca around 1580 and had contact with a Faqih and a Marabout. Everyone who travelled from Africa to Mecca supposedly had to travel by way of the Alleluya monastery as the rest of the region was considered uninhabitable (p. 61). From the library of Pierre Seguier, Lord Chancellor of France from 1635 to 1672, best known for his appearance in The three musketeers, with his arms and monogram stamped in gold on the binding. And with an owner's inscription of the 17th-century French scholar Etienne Baluze ("Stephanus Baluzius Tutelensis") on title-page. With a faint water stain in the lower margin of four leaves in the introduction, a tiny corner torn from the title-page and two tiny tears in the margins of the main text, otherwise in very good condition. Binding heavily restored, but with the gold-tooled coat of arms still very clear. Olivier, 271(4). Finger & Piccolino, The shocking history of electric fishes, p. 117; Palau 345993; Salva 3417; cf. Gay, Bibl. de l'Afrique et l'Arabe 2690.

        CORYATS CRUDITIES. Hastily gobled up in five Moneths travells in France, Savoy, Italy.Helvetia alia Switzerland, some parts of Germany and the Netherlands.

      Printed by W[illiam] S[tansby], London 1611 - Quarto in eights (8 1/8 x 6 inches; 206 x 153 mm). [-]2; a8-b8 ([-]1 inserted after a3); b4; c8-g8; h4-l4; B8-D8 (D3 inserted after preceding D); E8-3C8; 3D4; [-]2 (first is signed 3E3 and both are errata). The present copy collates the same as Pforzheimer. Illustrated with engraved title-page by William Hole and five engraved plates. Plates include the woodcut of the badge of the Prince of Wales as well as three folding plates. Also illustrated with two inter-textual engravings and numerous woodcut initials and head-pieces. With two leaves of errata. 19th-century straight-grain red morocco. Boards ruled and stamped in gilt with a central gilt coat-of-arms of Sir Henry Harben. Gilt dentelles and board edges. All edges gilt. Marbled endpapers. Some occasional light dampstaining and a few instances of old ink maginalia. The clock plate has been reinforced on the back side with two small tape repairs. The clock plate is not cropped which is rare. Engraved title is inserted on a stub. It has been remargined on the outer right margin and cropped close, as usual. Some light rubbing to edges and hinges. Book plates on front endpapers of Henry Devenish Harben, Dogmersfield Library and Arthur and Charlotte Vershbow. An exceptional copy."Perfect copies with the plates intact are not common.The D.N.B. has repeated the statement that the Chetham copy is the only perfect one know." (Pforzheimer 218) This copy owned by and bound for Sir Henry Harben (1823-1911) who was the driving force behind the Prudential Insurance Company and was knighted in 1897. This copy also with the bookplate of his grandson, Henry Devenish Harben (1874-1967), chairman of Prudential Insurance Company."There probably has never been another such combination of learning and unconscious buffoonery as is here set forth. Coryate was a serious and pedantic traveller who (as he states in his title) in five months toilsome travel wandered, mostly on foot, over a large part (by his own reckoning 1,975 miles) of western Europe. His adventures probably appeared to his contemporaries as more ridiculous than exciting, but at this remove, his chronicle by its very earnestness provides an account of the chief cities of early seventeenth century Europe which is at least valuable as it is amusing. It was probably his difficulties with the booksellers which induced Coryate to solicit the extraordinary sheaf of testimonials prefixed to the volume. Possibly he acted upon the notion apparently now current among publishers of social directories that every person listed is a prospective purchaser of the work. At any rate he secured contributions from more than sixty writers at the time. Among his panegyrists appear the names of Jonson, Chapman, Donne, Campion, Harington, Drayton, Davies of Hereford, and others, each contributor vying to mock poor Coryate with solemn ridicule." (Pforzheimer 218) "Coryate drew on his experiences in writing Coryats Crudities (1611), which was intended to encourage courtiers and gallants to enrich their minds by continental travel. It contains illustrations, historical data, architectural descriptions, local customs, prices, exchange rates, and food and drink, but is too diffuse and bulky-there are 864 pages in the 1905 edition-to become a vade-mecum. To solicit 'panegyric verses' Coryate circulated copies of the title-page depicting his adventures and his portrait, which had been engraved by William Hole and which he considered a good likeness. About sixty contributors include many illustrious authors, not all in verse, some insulting, some pseudonymous. Prince Henry accepted the dedication but insisted that all were published.

Edition originale très rare, illustrée de la planche double hors-texte : Tel se fait peindre Paul cinquiesme en la premiere page de plusieurs livres a lui dediez, imprimez à Rome & à Bouloigne. Le célèbre polémiste a dédié son livre au roi de France et une traduction latine à celui d'Angleterre. Il l'a composé pendant que les protestants étaient à Saumur, pour s'élever contre le pouvoir de l'Eglise et du pape Paul V comparé à la bête de l'Apocalypse. Ce « détestable livre » suivant le mot de Richelieu dans ses mémoires, fut condamné en Sorbonne le 22 août 1611 et provoqua une vive polémique. Le fonds de l'impression fut conservé au Château de Saumur dont Mornay était gouverneur, mais celui-ci fut démis en 1621 de sa charge, et les gens de la suite du roi, alors à Saumur brûlèrent peu après dans la cour du château, la plupart des exemplaires du Mystère d'iniquité. Vignette à la Tour de Babel sur le titre (18 x 17 cm) ; Portrait de l'auteur hors-texte gravé par L. Gaultier. De toute rareté complet de la planche dépliante.

      A Paris, chez Barthelemy Macé, 1611,1 volume, 170 x 105 mm, reliure vélin, à lorigine fermé par deux lacets, absents, dos lisse, titre à la plume, en tête, titre à la plume sur la tranche de pied, 1 ff. bl., 147- 84 pp., 6 ff., 304 pp., 2 ff., 1 ff.,bl. Hormis quelques rousseurs, belle condition. Dorigine légendaire le fameux privilège remonte à Dagobert, époque où Saint Romain était évêque de Rouen. Il fut décidé de débarrasser les marais de la rive gauche dune bête malfaisante. Seul un condamné à mort accepta la dangereuse besogne et avec laide de lévêque, ils terrassèrent la bête et traversèrent Rouen en un cortège victorieux. Le condamné fut grâcié et le privilège entériné par lAutorité. Chaque année les foules accourraient de tous les points de la Normandie pour applaudir le spectacle dun meurtrier arraché au supplice, traversant les rues, couronné de fleurs, de la Cathédrale à la Haute Vieille Tour où il soulevait, trois fois, devant une foule immense le reliquaire de Saint Romain.Mais au fil des ans le Privilège trouva de nombreux adversaires, à commencer par le pouvoir royal qui ne pouvait partager ce droit de grâce. De plus la tradition voulait que le condamné choisi fut celui qui avait commis le crime le plus horrible : « Le pis quil y a en ce privilège, cest quon ne donne grâce que des crimes les plus exécrables quon peut trouver et desquels le Roy na point acoustumé doctroyer grâce. » (Bodin, Jean),Plus grave, Jacques-Auguste de Thou se plaignait énergiquement dans son « Histoire Universelle » de ce que « Dans ces derniers temps on avait fait servir le privilège de la Fierté à une impunité détestable et sans bornes pour tous les malfaiteurs du royaume, pour tous les crimes les plus abominables. » Cest précisément lobjet du présent ouvrage qui fait état dun détournement du Privilège dans le cadre des Guerres de Religion. François de Montmorency, sieur de Hallot, gouverneur de Vernon avait été assassiné par le marquis dAllaigre en 1592. En vertu dudit privilège, lui et ses complices avaient été grâciés à la grande indignation des dames du Halot ou Hallot et de la Veronne qui sétaient estées en justice contre Claude ou Guillaume Pehu dit la Motte ou la Mothe, un complice gracié. Les orthographes sont différentes suivant les dossiers des demandeurs ou des défenseurs. « Christophe dAlègre, Allegre ou encore Allaigre, dabord partisan zélé dHenri IV, il fut, en 1591, nommé par ce prince gouverneur de Gisors. Ses pilleries et ses violences le rendirent tellement odieux, que le roi se vit obligé de le remplacer en 1592 par du Hallot, dont il se vengea en le faisant assassiner. »In, documents concernant la Normandie extraits du « Mercure François » 1605-1644.

Rerum judicatarum libri 4 è apparso nel 1597 (le tracce più antiche si trovano in Scottish BN), la Rerum anche è stata pubblicata nel 1596 da 3 chili. L'edizione latina non è apparentemente in Scozia, la Francia non ha più la British Library. Il catalogo Harvard Hollis contiene una copia del 1596. Proveniente da una avvocato di famiglia, autore, avvocato presso il Parlamento di Parigi, conosceva il picco della sua fama nel 1580, La collezione si compone di argomenti corrispondenti a quelli imposti da Anne Robert e altri avvocati in affari veri e proprio datati (includere fermate sulla data indicata negli archivi del Parlamento). Secondo Corbin, 1606, è il primo libro di questo tipo. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, très rare. 1 exemplaire à la BN de France, 1 à Paris-Cujas et un à la bibliothèque de Reims mais rien à la British Library et en Angleterre. Absent à Brunet. Page de titre en rouge et noir, une vignette de titre. Reliure en plein veau fauve d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné de 3 fleurons.

Ouvrage traduit par Gabriel Michel de La Rochemaillet. Rerum judicatarum libri 4 paru en 1597 (trace la plus ancienne trouvée à la BN d'Ecosse), le Rerum par ailleurs était paru en 1596 en 3 livres. L'édition latine ne se trouve apparemment qu'en Ecosse, La France n'en possède pas, pas plus que la British Library. Le Hollis catalogue d'Harvard contient un exemplaire de 1596. Issu d'une famille de juriste, L'auteur, avocat au parlement de Paris, connut l'apogée de sa gloire vers 1580, Le recueil se compose de plaidoiries correspondant à celles prononcées par Anne Robert ou d'autres avocats dans des affaires réelles et exactement datées (on retrouve les arrêts à la date donnée dans les registres du Parlement). Selon Corbin, 1606, c'est le premier recueil de ce type. On remarquera que les cas décrits ont une facture nettement littéraire et que l'auteur ne se fait pas défaut d'intervenir dans sa narration par des jugements moraux, en outre les personnages sont souvent nommés de noms semblables (Titius), ce qui accentue le caractère de nouvelles à ces affaires judiciaires.

Pergamena pieno del tempo. Torna con quattro nervi decorato con un pezzo di pelle di pecora come bionda. Piatti timbrato. Un ex libris due bloccato sulla prima guardia delfino con la lettera A. Il trattato di disprezzo del mondo è all'origine di un lavoro Eucherio, vescovo di Lione, poi eremita che coltivava nel suo lavoro una posizione stoica di contro il mondo; questo discorso spirituale ha trovato una notevole eco nella prima metà del XVII (che può essere riassunta con il termine di oggi Vanità) e molte opere riconquistò il titolo, come quella di Isacco Arnauld sviluppa un trattato vanità. L'opera è costruita in 7 parti: I. Discorso disprezzo del mondo. II. Dalla vita così portato. III. Iujement di Dio sui malvagi ... IIII. Meditazione sulla penitenza. V. Meditazione su saintcte Cene. VI. Afflizioni voce e sapeva martirio. VII. Meditazioni di un paziente. Arnauld era consigliere di Enrico IV e la sovrintendente delle finanze, la sua posizione pubblica illumina la sua luce spirituale di un lavoro strano, e dimostra la presenza del messaggio cristiano tinge di stoicismo in tutti gli strati della società; spirituale dottrina proprio disprezzo del mondo era in una volta ripreso dai protestanti e giansenisti, mostra la vitalità di una spiritualità ereditata sia cristiano e quello antico. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition rare, l'édition originale étant parue en 1561.

Reliure en plein vélin de l'époque. Dos à quatre nerfs orné d'une pièce de titre de basane blonde. Plats estampés. Un ex-libris à deux dauphins collé sur la première garde avec la lettre R. Le traité du mépris du monde est à l'origine un ouvrage d'Eucher, évêque de Lyon, puis ermite qui cultiva dans son oeuvre un position stoïcienne à l'égard du monde ; ce discours spirituel trouva un remarquable écho dans la première moitié du XVIIe (qu'on peut résumer aujourd'hui par le terme de Vanités) et de nombreuses oeuvres reprirent le titre, tel celui d'Isaac Arnauld qui développe un traité des vanités. L'oeuvre est construite en 7 parties : I. Discours sur le mespris du monde. II. De la conduicte de la vie. III. Iujement de Dieu sur les iniques... IIII. Meditation sur la penitence. V. Meditation sur la saintcte cene. VI. Discours des afflictions, & su martyre. VII. Meditations d'un malade. Arnauld fut conseiller d'Henri IV et intendant des finances, sa position publique éclaire son oeuvre spirituelle d'une étrange lueur, et démontre la présence du message chrétien teinté de stoïcisme dans toutes les couches de la société ; la doctrine spirituelle propre au mépris du monde fut tout à la fois reprise par les protestants et les jansénistes, elle affiche la vitalité d'une spiritualité héritée à la fois du christianisme et de l'Antiquité.

Legatura genuina in piena pergamena, con titoli manoscritti al dorso a quattro nervature. Tagli spruzzati.

Al foglio di guardia ex libris Antonia Suardi Ponti, con il motto "Leggere le buone opere e osservarle". Assai rara edizione originale di un'opera, pubblicata postuma, dell'erudito Marco Publio Fontana (18 gennaio 1548 - 10 novembre 1609), le cui origini non sono del tutto note, sostenendo taluni essere nato a Palosco nel Bergamasco, ed altri nel Bresciano. Ebbe interessi molto vari, spaziando dalla medicina alla botanica, dalla fisiognomica alla chiromanzia, dilettandosi nella pittura, nella scultura e nella musica come suonatore di cembalo. Corrispondente del Marino, ascritto alle Accademie degli Erranti e dei Rapiti, lasciò varie composizioni letterarie, alcune perdute: "Carmina" (1578), "Delphinus" (1582), "Dafne, ovvero Dell'onore" (1595), etc., oltre all'importante "Il sontuoso apparato fatto dalla magnifica citta di Brescia nel felice ritorno dell'ill. & reverendiss. vescovo suo, il cardinale Morosini. Con la spositione de' sensi simbolici che in esso si contengono" (1591), apparato che risulta essere stato da lui stesso predisposto. > Piantanida, 3580, "Edizione originale postuma". Fontanini, "Biblioteca dell'eloquenza italiana", 244, e Haym, 193, citano l'edizione 1615, come pure British Library, I.

Titre et 19 planches (sur 27) vélin souple de l'époque (corps d'ouvrage remonté au XXe siècle) 1611 et 1614, 1611 et 1614, , 2 volumes in-4 oblong de I. Titre et 19 planches (sur 24) ; et de II. Titre et 19 planches (sur 27), vélin souple de l'époque (corps d'ouvrage remonté au XXe siècle), Deux rares éditions originales de recueils de gravures de Simon Frisius d'après le peintre Mathias Bril, et imprimées par Hondius. Ces paysages variées sont dans la plus pure tradition de la peinture de l'école du Nord du dernier tiers du XVIe siècle : scène pittoresque, moulin, arbres solitaires, effets de mouvements rendus habilement grâce au mouvement du ciel et à la construction géométrique des tableaux, etc. D'après les récentes recherches de Nadine Orenstein (The New Hollstein [...] Simon Frisius I, 2008, p. 98-142), on ne compte que 9 exemplaires connus dans les fonds publics pour chacune de ces publications. 16 des planches présentent la très peu courante caractéristique d'avoir été rehaussées anciennement, voire à l'époque. Le mélange de la brillance du coloris ancien et des tons pastels a très bien été conservé. Une des planches de l'édition de 1614 ne correspond pas aux reproductions du New Hollstein, il s'agit donc d'un ajout annexe. En effet, cette planche n'est pas signée "Matias Bril inventor" mais "Jodocus van lier", c'est à dire Joos van Liere. La plus part des dessins de ce paysagiste et miniaturiste flamand mal-connu (né aux alentours de 1520 et mort en 1583) ne nous sont parvenus que d'après les gravures d'Hondius. La notre est la célèbre vue d'un village avec son reflet dans l'eau, superbement rehaussée. Bien qu'incomplet et que certaines de ces planches soient salies en bordure, très bel ensemble d'une absolue rareté du fait du coloris ancien et de la présence d'une gravure du méconnu Van Liere

        Discours sur l'Impuissance de l'Homme et de la Femme. Auquel est...

      1611. Divorce Due to Sexual Dysfunction Tagereau, Vincent. Discours sur l'Impuissance de l'Homme et de la Femme. Auquel est Declare, Que c'est qu'Impuissance Empeschant & Separant le Marriage. Paris: N. Rousset [Roussel], 1611. [viii], 191, [1] pp. Octavo (6-3/4" x 4-1/4"). Later paper-covered boards. Light rubbing to extremities. Moderate toning, somewhat heavier in places, faint dampspotting to a few leaves. Side-notes affected in a few places by shaving, minor tears to margins of a few leaves. Early underlining to some passages in faint pencil, interior otherwise clean. An appealing copy of a scarce work. * First edition. A treatise on the dissolution of marriage due to sexual dysfunction. The legal procedure, called "epreuve du congres," was humiliating: before a jury of lawyers, judges and witnesses, the man had to show whether or not he was able to fulfill the duties imposed by marriage. Apparently, testimony sufficed when dealing with female dysfunction. Later editions were published in 1612 and 1655, with reissues of the 1612 edition in 1887, 1900 and 2013.

        La Huictme Part des Reports... Heavily Annotated in Contemporary Hand

      1611. First Edition of the Eighth Part of Coke's Reports Annotated Throughout in Contemporary Hand Coke, Sir Edward [1552-1634]. La Huictme Part des Reports de Sr. Edw. Coke Chevalier, Chiefe Iustice del Common Banke: Des Divers Resolutions & Jugements Donez sur Solennes Arguments & Avec-Grand Deliberation & Conference des Tresreverends Iuges & Sages de la Ley, De Cases en Ley Queux ne Fueront Unques Resolus ou Adiudgez par Devant: Et les Raisons & Causes des Dits Resolutions & Iugements. Publie en le Neufme an de Treshaut & Tresillustre Iaques Roy Dengl. Fr. & Irel. & De Escoce le 44. Le Fountaine de Tout Pietie & Iustice, & La Vie de la Ley. London: Printed for the Societie of Stationers, 1611. [15], 171 [i.e. 173], [1] ff. Text in Law-French and Latin. Folio (11-1/4" x 7-1/4"). Contemporary calf, blind rules to boards, early initials "RB" blind-stamped to centers, raised bands to spine, fragments of cloth ties, early hand-lettered title to head of text block. Moderate rubbing to extremities, minor chipping to spine ends, corners bumped, a few partial cracks to text block. Light toning to interior, faint dampstaining to lower margins of preliminaries, following five leaves and a few more leaves at rear of text, underlining and annotations throughout text in early hand. * First edition. Coke's Reports are not reports in the conventional sense; they are highly detailed anthologies of precedents organized by topic. Taken together, it forms the most extensive and detailed treatment of common law pleading that had yet appeared. A work of immense authority, it was often cited as The Reports, there being no need to mention the author's name. The annotations in this copy, probably those of a student or practitioner, indicate careful study. Several passages are underlined, there are many brief notes in the margins and several long footnotes keyed to the text. Some of these are case references or glosses; most are interpretive. As a group, the annotations offer valuable insight into a contemporary reader's engagement with this book. English Short-Title Catalogue S4190.

        A CLOSET FOR LADIES AND GENTLEWOMEN. OR, THE ART OF PRESERVING, CONSERVING, AND CANDYING . . . ALSO DIVERS SOVERAIGNE MEDICINES AND SALVES FOR SUNDRY DISEASES

      Printed [by Thomas Purfoot?] for Arthur Iohnson, London 1611 - 120 x 72 mm. (4 3/4 x 2 7/8"). 1 p.l. (title), 190 pp., [44] blank leaves. Two parts in one volume. Second Printing. Contemporary limp vellum, flat spine with ink writing ("Dolightes ad ---"), four small holes for ties, now lacking. In a modern half calf clamshell box by the Abrams Bindery. Inside front cover inscribed in ink, "Mary Squire / her booke"; foot of p. 29 inscribed "Mary Squire / Her Booke / 12." STC 5435. Small chips at top of joints, vellum rather soiled, a number of leaves significantly stained and thumbed (as one would expect with a recipe book), one leaf with short repaired tear into text (no loss), other trivial defects, but still an excellent copy and a remarkable survival, the binding solid and not unpleasant, and the text surprisingly well preserved, given the use it has encountered. Printed the same year as the King James Bible, this is a popular home medical guide with recipes for remedies requiring such exotic ingredients as coral, amber, pearls, and unicorn horn, as well as more prosaic herbs, egg whites, cream, and spirits. First published in 1608, "Closet for Ladies" went to 15 editions by 1656, but as a result of hard use, all of these printings are now quite rare. Then, as now, mothers had the primary responsibility for ministering to the family's ailments, and "closets"--the contemporary term for collections of household recipes--were indispensable to women like our former owner Mary Squire. The ink titling on the spine here suggests that this volume was perhaps confused with a similar book, Sir Hugh Platt's "Delightes for Ladies" (some bibliographers also attribute our "Closet" to Platt). The present work begins with instructions for making preserves, candies, and cordials, but these concoctions were not for pleasure alone; they also had medicinal uses. For example, candy lozenges and cordials could be used to soothe coughs and sore throats. There are numerous recipes for treating common complaints like headaches, colic, and bruises, in addition to instructions for handling more serious matters, including infestations of intestinal worms (a frequent problem before modern sanitation and food safety standards) and potentially life-threatening complications of childbirth. The wide-ranging work even includes some cosmetics recipes, including one for whitening the skin that calls for mercury(!). Because nearly all of these early home remedy books have been destroyed, copies of any kind--let alone complete ones in anything like appealing condition--are seldom encountered. Our 1611 edition of this work is the earliest printing recorded at auction in at least 40 years, and it has appeared just once, in 1992.

        The Faerie Queen: The Shepheards Calendar: Together with the Other Works of England's Arch-Poët, Edm. Spenser: Collected into one Volume, and carefully corrected.

      - London: Printed by H. L. for Mathew Lownes, 1611. Folio, 10 inches x 7 ins., paginating thus: (Faerie Queen) [i-xvi], 363, [3, inc. final blank]; (Shepheards Calendar) [x], 56, (2, blank); (Prosopopoia) 16; (Colin Clout) [26]; (Prothalamion) [4]; (Amoretti) [16]; (Epithalamion) [6]; (Foure Hymnes) [16]; (Daphnaida) [10]; (Complaints) [12]; (The Teares of the Muses) [12]; (Virgils Gnat) (20); (The Ruines of Rome) [6]; (Muiopotmos) [10]; (Visions of the Worlds Vanitie) [6]; (The Visions of Petrarch) [2] pp. General title within woodcut border (McKerrow & Ferguson 212), twelve woodcut illustrations and ornamental borders, decorative woodcut head- and tail-pieces and initials. (The woodcuts in The Shepheards Calender were used in all the earlier separate editions.) First collected edition of Spenser's works and first folio edition, second (1615?) issue, with the title to The Second Part of the Faerie Queene beginning with signature R, dated 1613 and the colophon dated "16012" [sic]. With the Prosopopoia. Or Mother Hubberds Tale, consisting of a single gathering A of eight leaves and dated 1612 on the title, not found in the first issue. "The first modern English poet to achieve major stature, Spenser demonstrated with his fluency in many meters and stanzaic forms that English waås at least the equal to any other language as a vehicle of great poetry. While his poetry, particularly The Faerie Queene, looks backward as the culmination of the allegorical verse tradition of the Pearl Poet, Langland, and Chaucer, he has influenced with his fertile imagination and especially his sensuous imagery and melodic language nearly every important English poet who followed him."

      Darmstadt Porssius 1611 - (16,5 x 10 cm). 334 S. Pergamentband der Zeit. Erste Ausgabe. - "The work of the miracles of the four elements has the alternative title, Historical Temple of Nature, and is largely drawn from antiquated authors. Not only are the elements still four, but comets are still exhalations in the supreme region of air. Tides, however, are attributed to the moon. According to the tradition of the Magi, there are three kinds of spiritual beings: supercelestial who are very close to God, celestial intelligences for the spheres and stars, and demons for each of the four elements. There are also fiery men and aerial men, and four animals who feed on a single element: the mole on earth, the 'alec' on water, the chameleon on air, and the salamander nourished on fire. Besides miracles of each element, there are alphabetical treatments of birds, quadrupeds, mountains, bodies of water, forests, gardens, trees, herbs, flowers, fruits, cities, temples, towers, bridges, and so on passing from the realm of nature to that of art" (Thorndike). - Der aus Kirchhain in Hessen stammende Kornmann (1579-1627), ein Jurist und Polyhistoriker, verhalf durch sein Werk "Mons Veneris" dem Brocken als Hexenberg zu großer Popularität. - Der Benzing unbekannte Drucker J.

Ein Kompendium des damaligen naturwissenschaftlichen und technischen Wissens. - The work contains "a little of everything: from cosmology to the construction of machines; from the usefulness of natural sciences to the evil influence of demons; from the laws of mechanics to cryptology. It is a mine of facts, both real and imaginary; of notes on the state of the sciences, of superstition, technology, alchemy and various branches of the occult" (DSB). U.a. mit Kapiteln zu: Alchemie, Astrologie, Okkultismus, Wahrsagerei und Magie. Unter "subtilitas" (Feinheit) versteht Cardanus die Wahrnehmung mit den Sinnen und das Verstehen mit dem Verstand, deshalb ist der Mensch nur mit Hilfe der "subtilitas" in der Lage, die Geheimnisse der Natur zu ergründen. - Stempel auf Titel.

        Camino del cielo en lengua mexicana, con todos los requisitos necessarios para conseguir este fin, co[n] todo lo que un Xp[r]iano deue creer, saber, y obrar, desde el punto que tiene uso de razon, hasta que muere.

      En Mexico: En la Emprenta de Diego Lopez Davalos Small 4to (18.5 cm; 7.25"). Fols. 10–11, 13–69, 69[!]–73, [nothing missing] 76, 75, 77–108, 110–23.. 1611 Sole colonial-era edition and one rare in commerce of Fr. Martín de León's famous work for priests ministering to Nahuatl-speaking Indians. Fray Martín is universally held to have been one of the great scholars of the language in the late 16th and early 17th centuries, admired for his fluency and ability to explain complex matters in elegant yet easy to understand expositions, as here in his confessionary, catechism, and calendar essay. Tragedy struck this copy, which lacks the title-leaf, licences, dedication, preliminaries concerning use of the word "Teotlacatl," prologue, the remarks on the Mexican language, the first nine leaves of the catechism in Nahuatl, and fols. 109 and 124–60. Surviving is most of the catechism, the section in Spanish on the syncretism of the Spanish and the Mexican religious calendars, and all but the last half page of the confessionary in Nahuatl, the missing paragraph supplied in early, neat manuscript — the book's sad owner redeeming its losses as best he could? Disbound but sewn; housed in a quarter red morocco clamshell case with marbled paper sides. Waterstaining throughout causing many pages to have an almost uniform tan appearance except in the foremargins; foremargins with shouldernotes shaved. Missing leaves as itemized above; fols. 30, 80–81, and 110–11 damaged with small loss, and repairs to some of these margins plus a few others; other usually minor scattered stains. The interesting woodcut on fol. 100 verso and text on recto, holed, still striking and readable respectively. Pencilled marks of emphasis and one faded note (or signature?) across a bottom margin in old ink. Priced much, much less than a good, complete copy; and a relic with much more than its lowered price to recommend it.

        Castilla avrifera cvm vicinis provinciis.

      1611. Map. Copper-plate engraving. Image measures 9 x 11.5". Sheet measures 11.25 x 14.5". This rare map of Colombia shows the northern segment of the country, covering the coastline as it extends from the Caribbean Sea south the Andes Mountains. Panama, also included, runs into the title cartouche, which symbolically demarcates the depicted South American regions from unseen Central America. The map primarily renders forts as they have sprouted up along the main rivers. It is a later version of a map first published in Wytfliet's 1597 atlas, which contains some of the first printed maps of the New World as well as a history of the voyages of Columbus, Pizarro, Verrazano and other explorers. The map is in very good condition with wide margins. Some wormholes in margin not affecting the image. Cornelius Wytfliet (c. 1550--1597) was a Belgian cartographer who dedicated his work to Spain. He used the writings of both historians and contemporary geographers to render the geography natural history, and European discovery of the Americas. This map is a fine example of his work.
