        Leucoium

      Frankfurt, Germany.. Ca. 1612.. Engraving with handcolor, image 13 1/2 x 8 inches. Very good condition. Conservation matted. From Emanuel Sweert's Florilegium, first issued in 1612, with five subsequent editions. "Emanuel Sweert, a Dutch florist, was at one time Praefectus of the gardens of the Emperor Rudolf II, and it was at his behest that the work was produced. Although it did not contain prices it also served as a catalogue of plants offered for sale by Sweert at the Frankfurt Fair." (de Belder catalogue). The intaglio processes of engraving and etching had only recently been applied to botanical illustration, allowing for a finer, more spontaneous line than the woodcut. Pictured are a number of varieties of the Amaryllis family. .

        Einede di Virgilio del Commendatore Annibal Caro.

      Bernardo Giunti 1612 - Venise, Bernardo Giunti, 1612. In 8 de 556pp., reliure en plein vélin souple de l'époque, quelques légères traces et usures du temps, nom de l'auteur et titre, avec la date manuscrits à l'encre noire sur la tête du dos, intérieur frais avec quelques petites taches brunes et beiges, notamment sur la page de titre, bon et bel exemplaire. Fondamentale et magistrale traduction, deuxième édition plus rare et bien meilleure que la première qui date de 1581. Annibal Caro (1507-1566), originaire de Civitanova dans les Marches, étudia d Florence où il fit la connaissance de Benedetto Varchi. Par la suite, il entra au service des Farnèse, il pu ainsi jouir de revenus conséquents lui assurant une vie matérielle aisée et lui permettant ainsi de se dédier totalement à son activité littéraire. Sa réputation est surtout liée à sa remarquable traduction de ''l'Eneide'' de Virgile publiée pour la première fois en 1581, traduction qu'il améliora amplement lors de la réédition de 1612. Cette oeuvre dans cette traduction restera un classique durant plusieurs siècles. En tant qu'auteur, Caro composera ses ''Rime" (1569) et ''Gli straccioni'' (1582). En 1563 Caro laissera son poste auprès des Farnèse et se retirera dans sa villa de Frascati, durant les dernières années de sa vie, il préparera l'édition de sa correspondance et peaufinera sa traduction de Virgile.

        [Greek Title] Athenaei Deipnosophistarum libri quindecim, cum Jacobi Dalechampii Cadonensis Latina Interpretatione...Editio postrema in qua ultra quae ante Isaacus Casaubonus Recensuit

      Lugdani, [i.e. Lyon]: apud viduam Antonii de Harsy, 1612. First Casaubon Edition. Folio. [48], 490, 489-702, [2], 705-811pp, [49]. A fine, unpressed copy in late seventeenth-century English panelled calf, spine richly gilt, contrasting red morocco lettering-piece with gilt detailing. lightly rubbbed, with some splitting to upper joint, bumping to corners. A handful of minute wormholes to darkened spine. Some surface loss to boards. Graham Pollard's copy, with his pencilled note to FEP: 'possibly by the spaniel binder, witness the sprigs of leaves to spine and the rolls round the panel, but comparison with the five positively identified 'Spaniel Binder' examples held by the British Library enables no positive identification. Eighteenth century armorial bookplate of Sir Thomas Seabright to FEP, neat annotation to title identifying Casaubon as 'auctour damnatus'. The Third Century Hellenist Athenaeus of Naucratis' Deipnosophists roughly translates as the Banquet of the Learned, it examines the world of the leisure classes in the Roman Empire in fifteen books and is rich source for the study of classical recipes, wine, music, literary gossip and sexual mores. Books XII-XIII include a particularly candid discussion of homosexuality. Not only is this present volume with the extensive notes of classicist Isaac Casaubon (1559-1614) considered the definitive edition of the Deipnosophists, but also the magnum opus of Casaubon himself.

        A discoverie of the true causes why Ireland was never entirely subdued,

      [London:] Printed [by W. Jaggard] for John Jaggard,, 1612. nor brought under obedience of the crowne of England, untill the beginning of his Majesties happie raigne. Quarto (184 × 138 mm). Seventeenth-century mottled calf, spine gilt in compartments, red morocco label. Complete with the initial leaf, blank except for signature-mark "A"; in this copy the last page is blank– some copies, presumably later issues, have errata printed on 2O2v. Armorial bookplate of J. B. Roberts. Some restoration to spine and at head of rear cover, a very good copy, clean and well-margined. First edition; rare in commerce. As part of the regime consolidating English rule following the defeat of Tyrone's rebel forces, Sir John Davies's career in Ireland spanned 16 years' service, first as Solicitor-General, 1603–6, then as Attorney-General, 1606–19. More than any other English administrator, Davies realised that military force in itself was not an adequate basis for pacification of the newly conquered kingdom. "Davies proposed the universal application of English law to the whole of Ireland in a way that would facilitate assimilation of the Gaelic polity and reduce the influence of the Old English descendants of the earlier Anglo-Norman settlements" (Hans S. Pawlisch, ed., Sir John Davies and the Conquest of Ireland: A Study in Legal Imperialism, Cambridge UP, 2002).

        Americae Sive Novi Orbis, Nova Descriptio.

      Abraham Ortelius 1612 - Stunning early map of the Western Hemisphere dotted with ships and sea monsters. This was first map of the Americas to appear in a modern atlas. It went through three major revisions, as noted by Van Den Broecke. This third state of the map is most notable in that it is the first appearance of Chesapeake Bay on a map, appearing as an inlet just above an Indian name Wingandkoa, which reflects early English efforts at Colonization in the Outer Banks of the Carolinas. The nomenclature in California is also updated and improved from the two earlier states. At the time it was issued, the coastal areas of the New World had been fairly well explored, and Europeans were just beginning settlement and colonization. It is notable for depicting Spanish and Portuguese colonies in high detail, for these powers were notoriously protective of their geographical surveys. This is the third state of this famous map, with the revised shape of South America. Italian text on verso. Minor chipping to edges. Full original margins. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 14" x 19.25".

        Colloquiorum, sive dierum canicularium continuatio, seu tomus quartus. [.] Opus nunc primo editum, opera & studio M. G[eorgii] D[raudii].

      Frankfurt am Main, [Schönwetter], 1612. - (6), 363, (1) SS. Neuer Pergamentband auf 3 durchzogenen Bünden mit übergreifenden Deckelkanten. Bindebänder. Gr.-4to. Seltener vierter Band der erstmals 1597 zu Rom, dann 1600 zu Ursel erschienenen "Dies Caniculares" ("Hundstage") des aus Asti stammenden Bischofs von Voltuaria Simeon Majoli (1520-97?; vgl. Jöcher III, 54), eines weitverbreiteten, sehr beliebten Kompendiums interessanter und aufsehenerregender Geschichten. "Espèce d'encyclopédie, dans laquelle l'auteur a traité entre autres sujets, avec une certaine étendue, de la distance des astres et des marées" (Houzeau/L.). Das oft als bloß vierbändig geführte Werk (von dem wiederum meist nur die ersten drei Bände vorhanden sind) hat in Wirklichkeit, je nach Ausgabe, bis zu sieben Teile, von denen allerdings wohl nur der erste von Majolus selbst stammt, die übrigen dagegen vom Bibliographen Georg Draud (1573-1635). Der 2. Band geriet gar auf den Index librorum prohibitorum. Der vorliegende vierte Band wird am ersten Textblatt als "Dierum Canicularium imitationem [.] tomus IV & ultimus" bezeichnet. Enthält (gesellschafts-)philosophische Gespräche zwischen einem Ritter, einem Theologen und einem Philosophen "de dignitate hominis", "de hominis creatione, lapsu, generatione et educatione", "de hominum educatione, atque informatione, deque virtutum commendatione ac vitiorum vituperio", "de origine et progressu societas humanae, et coitionis populi in unam rem publicam" und "de dignitatum ac sessionum differentiis, uni de honorum dignitatumque titulis, familiarumque insignibus". - Zweispaltig mit Rahmenlinien gedruckt.

        Discorso al Serenissimo Don Cosimo II¿Intorno alle cose, che Stanno in su l¿acqua, o che in quella si muovono.

      Cosimo Giunti, Florence 1612 - (2) ff, 77 pp, (1), (1) f with printer¿s emblem. Bound with: [GALILEI, Galileo & CASTELLI, Benedetto]. Risposta alle Opposizioni del S. Lodovico delle Colombe, e del S. Vincenzo di Grazia. Florence, Cosimo Giunti, 1615. (1) ff, (2), 319 [ie 335] pp with numerous mispaginations, (5) including printer¿s emblem. Bound in contemporary limp vellum with MS title on spine, ¿Galileo Galilei Opera¿, internally very fresh, an excellent copy in all respects. A remarkable pairing of two Galileana bound together by a contemporary follower of the power struggle between Galileo and the Aristotelians. The second augmented edition of Galileo¿s classic on hydrostatics, published the same year within months of the first edition, represents his first published work in physics (Drake, p. 179). The Discorso is hailed by historians of science as having united for the first time two previously separate disciplines: statics and dynamics, resulting in a new science of mechanics, containing his first published statements on the concept of moment, an abstract concept of physical force which has been shown to have dominated his early physical thinking, and contains several first announcements concerning some of his great astronomical discoveries relating to sunspots, the triple form of Saturn, and the phases of Venus. The present 2nd edition contains significant additional text concerning this important concept. The Risposta, one of the scarcest of Galileo¿s works on the market, contains his lengthy and scathing replies to his critics only a year before his official castigation by the Catholic Church. Two years after the publication of the Sidereus Nuncius which assured his place in the history of science, and after displaying his telescopic discoveries in Rome, Galileo returned to Florence and devoted himself to the study of floating bodies, ¿the real, intrinsic and total cause why some bodies float and others sink.¿ In the Discorso, Galileo supports Archimedes and opposes Aristotle on the behavior of bodies in water, arguing that the reason some solids sink is the excess of their weight over the weight of water. Employing the concept of moment¿ ¿the force with which the mover moves and the floating body resists¿ ¿and the principle of virtual velocities, Galileo far surpasses the hydrostatic considerations of Archimedes: ¿The new method enables Galileo to unify statics and dynamics into a new science of mechanics which became the foundation of modern physics¿ (Rose, The Italian Renaissance of Mathematics, p. 287). As noted above, the second edition may be distinguished from the first by the additional material contained therein; notably, Galileo drew attention to these additions by printing them in Roman type rather than Italic. Among these additions are Galileo¿s first announcements of the Sun¿s rotation period, his announcements of sunspots, and his discovery of the ¿horns¿ of Saturn. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      - [Frankfurt or Amsterdam: circa 1612-1647]. Copper engravings, with expert modern hand-colouring. 13 1/4 x 8 1/8 inches approx. 14 1/8 x 9 1/8 inches approx. (visible area). Framed and glazed. A fine highly decorative pair of 17th-century tulip portraits from Sweert's 'Florilegium' The Dutch florist Emanuel Sweert produced his 'Florilegium' at the behest of the Emperor Rudolf II of Austria. Six editions were published in Frankfurt (1) or Amsterdam (5) between 1612 and about 1647. The present pair of Tulip prints are amongst the most beautiful of the images produced for the 'Florilegium': the flowers of 24 varieties are shown with brief explanatory text beneath each one, all beautifully arranged in ranks that echo the patterned precision with which they were grown by 17th-century gardeners. Tulips today are highly appreciated for the joyful range of colours and the elegant shapes they present in early spring. At the time when the present images were printed, Tulips were the main horticultural obsession. Their growing was essentially a pastime for the rich and powerful. The search for new varieties (particularly the bi-colour or 'broken' varieties) reached its zenith in Amsterdam in the 1620s and 1630s with a sort of 'dot-com' speculation and investment frenzy when individual bulbs fetched more than a medium-sized house.

        Virginia

      Richmond, Virginia:. 1612/1819.. A very important map of colonial Virginia and the Chesapeake Bay, the most detailed and accurate one of this coastline for many years, and the source for most later printed maps of Virginia. This classic map is oriented to the west; addition to the Bay, it shows four large rivers, the Powhatan, Pamunk, Tappahannock, and Patowomec (now the James, York, Rappahannock and Potomac rivers), with small Maltese crosses indicating the point on each river to which the exploring parties actually traveled. With more than one hundred and fifty Native American villages named. This is the tenth state from the original plate, engraved and printed in Richmond in 1819 (Philip Burden, 'The Mapping of North America' p203). With an inset of Powhatan's council with John Smith as honored captive at the upper left; a royal coat of arms below the title banner; an illustration of a Native American holding broadaxe and bow at the right ("the Sasquesahanougs are a Gyant people & thus atyred"); a scale of leagues and half leagues at the bottom; "The Virginian Sea", compass rose, sailing ship and sea monster at the lower left corner. Laid down on thin artboard, with original folds visible; very good overall. In an early dark wood frame with glass, 20 1/4 x 17".

        Discorso al Serenissimo Don Cosimo II.Intorno alle cose, che Stanno in su l'acqua, o che in quella si muovono

      Florence: Cosimo Giunti, 1612. Hardcover. Near Fine. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. (2) ff, 77 pp, (1), (1) f with printer's emblem. Bound with: [GALILEI, Galileo & CASTELLI, Benedetto]. Risposta alle Opposizioni del S. Lodovico delle Colombe, e del S. Vincenzo di Grazia... Florence, Cosimo Giunti, 1615. (1) ff, (2), 319 [ie 335] pp with numerous mispaginations, (5) including printer's emblem. Bound in contemporary limp vellum with MS title on spine, "Galileo Galilei Opera', internally very fresh, an excellent copy in all respects. A remarkable pairing of two Galileana bound together by a contemporary follower of the power struggle between Galileo and the Aristotelians. The second augmented edition of Galileo's classic on hydrostatics, published the same year within months of the first edition, represents his first published work in physics (Drake, p. 179). The Discorso is hailed by historians of science as having united for the first time two previously separate disciplines: statics and dynamics, resulting in a new science of mechanics, containing his first published statements on the concept of moment, an abstract concept of physical force which has been shown to have dominated his early physical thinking, and contains several first announcements concerning some of his great astronomical discoveries relating to sunspots, the triple form of Saturn, and the phases of Venus. The present 2nd edition contains significant additional text concerning this important concept. The Risposta, one of the scarcest of Galileo's works on the market, contains his lengthy and scathing replies to his critics only a year before his official castigation by the Catholic Church. Two years after the publication of the Sidereus Nuncius which assured his place in the history of science, and after displaying his telescopic discoveries in Rome, Galileo returned to Florence and devoted himself to the study of floating bodies, "the real, intrinsic and total cause why some bodies float and others sink." In the Discorso, Galileo supports Archimedes and opposes Aristotle on the behavior of bodies in water, arguing that the reason some solids sink is the excess of their weight over the weight of water. Employing the concept of moment- "the force with which the mover moves and the floating body resists" -and the principle of virtual velocities, Galileo far surpasses the hydrostatic considerations of Archimedes: "The new method enables Galileo to unify statics and dynamics into a new science of mechanics which became the foundation of modern physics" (Rose, The Italian Renaissance of Mathematics, p. 287). As noted above, the second edition may be distinguished from the first by the additional material contained therein; notably, Galileo drew attention to these additions by printing them in Roman type rather than Italic. Among these additions are Galileo's first announcements of the Sun's rotation period, his announcements of sunspots, and his discovery of the "horns" of Saturn.

        Hudibras. The First [Second and Third] Part[s]. Written in the time of the Late Wars. Correted and Amended With Several Additions and Annotations. [bound with] Butlers Ghost: or Hudibras. The Fourth Part.With Reflections upon these Times. Jacta est alea. Eras-

      1612-1680 Octavo, 4.25 x 6.75 inches. The first collected edition. A-Z, Aa-Cc8. A-Q8. [ ]4, B-N8. This copy is bound in nineteenth century full calf with a gilt spine, with all edges gilt, overall, a very pleasing copy. Hudibras is the most famous work of the last seventeenth century English metaphysical poet. It was much favored by Royalists and often quoted by King Charles II, who awarded Butler 3000 pounds sterling for its composition. Butler's Hudibras is written in iambic tetrameter, like the works of the metaphysical poets but it makes a seachange shift which starts a thread in English literature which runs into the fabric of Laurence Sterne's Tristram Shandy and even to Joyce's Ulysses and Finnegan's Wake. The irreverent treatment and scope of subject is undoubtledy responsible for its great popularity. "Hudibras may be described as a mock-heroic poem dealing with the pretensions and hypocrisies of the presbyterians, independents and other sects which were subversive of the monarchy at the time of the great rebellion. Though it was not published till after the restoration of Charles II, Butler's sympathies were ardently royalist; but his pen, so far as we know, was engaged only fitfully in support of his convictions. His object in putting together in a considerable poem an account of the events and opinions which he had quietly recorded during the convulsive struggles of the nation must have been to ingratiate himself with the king after his return. The impelling motive may well have been poverty, together with the desire of fame. "The name Hudibras is derived from The Faerie Queene, and the setting of the poem is obviously imitated from Don Quixote, save that the imitation is a complete reversal of the attitude of the original. Cervantes treats the vanishing chivalry of Spain in a gentle and affectionate spirit, while showing the impossibility of its continuance in the changed conditions of life. In Don Quixote, every element of grandeur and nobility is attributed to the most ordinary and meanest person, building, incident or surrounding; an inn is a castle, an inn-keeper a knight, flocks of sheep are armies; a barber's basin is a golden helmet in the vivid imagination of the knight; a mess of acorns set before him prompts a discourse full of regret at the passing away of the Golden Age, when Nature herself provided simple, wholesome fare for all, without necessity for resorting to force or fraud; and justice prevails throughout. [.] In Hudibras, on the contrary, the "blasoning" or description of the knight and squire, while following the most accredited forms of chivalric romance, serves only to set forth the odious squalor of the modern surroundings. The knight's mental qualifications are given in great detail and, after that, his bodily accomplishments-all in a vein of satirical exaggeration. Butler's purpose is to show everything in its vilest aspect. Instead of making common affairs noble in appearance, the poem reveals the boastful pretensions of the puritan knight by describing both his equipment and that of his squire squalid and beggarly, while his purpose is, not to excite pity for the poverty and wretchedness of these pitiful champions, but to provoke contempt for the disgusting condition of the wretched pair and to bring down further odium upon it. It is genre painting with a vengeance, and fully realizes the account given by Pliny of the art of Piraeicus: "He painted barbers' shops and cobblers' stalls, asses and dishes of food, and the like, thus getting the name of 'painter of low life,' and giving the highest pleasure by such representations." Our own Morland and Hogarth well answer such a description, and we are fortunate in possessing illustrations of Hudibras designed by the latter. The sympathy between the painter and the poet must have been complete. "[Hudibras] is described as a "true blue" presbyterian, ignorant, conceited, pedantic, crotchety, a pretender to linguistic, mathematical and dialectical learning, bent on a "thorough-going reformation" by means of "apostolic blows and knocks." In external appearance, he was of a most droll rusticity. His beard was orange tawny and it was unkempt because he had vowed not to trim it till the monarchy was put down. He was hunchbacked and adorned by a protuberant paunch, stuffed with country fare of milk and butter. His doublet was buff, the colour much affected by his party, and was proof against blows from a cudgel, but not against swordcuts. His trunk-hose were full of provisions; even his sword had a basket-hilt to hold broth, and was so little used that it had worn out the scabbard with rust, having been exhibited only in serving warrants. His dagger was serviceable for scraping pots and toasting cheese. His holster contained rusty pistols which proved useful in catching rats in the locks, snapping on them when they foraged amongst his garments for cheese. Don Quixote took no thought as to how he should obtain sustenance, while Hudibras was an itinerant larder. "All this is adapted from Cervantes or Rabelais, who themselves parodied the chivalric romances in the apparelling and blasoning of their heroes: in the same vein, Butler goes on to describe the steed and the squire. The horse was mealymouthed, blind of one eye, like the mare of Rabelais's Catchpole,?and wall-eyed of the other; there are also reminiscences of Rosinante and of Gargantua's mare. It was of a grave, majestic pace, and is compared with Caesar's horse, which would stoop to take up its rider, while this one stooped to throw Hudibras. The saddle was old and worn through, and the horse's tail so long and bedraggled that it was only serviceable for swishing mire on the rider. "Ralpho the squire is an independent, with a touch of the anabaptist, despising booklore and professing to be learned for salvation by means of "gifts" or "new-light," in the phraseology of those sects. [.] Ralpho is a tailor and, like Aeneas and Dante, has seen "hell"-a sartorial term of the age, meaning a receptacle for shreds and scraps." (William Francis Smith, M.A., Fellow of St. John's College.)

        DE NOUO ORBE. OR, THE HISTORIE OF THE WEST INDIES, CONTAYNING THE ACTES AND ADUENTURES OF THE SPANYARDS, WHICH HAVE CONQUERED AND PEOPLED THOSE COUNTRIES...Written by Peter Martyr...WHEREOF THREE HAUE BEEN FORMERLY TRANSLATED INTO ENGLISH. BY R. EDEN, WHEREUNTO THE OTHER FIUE, ARE NEWLY ADDED BY THE INDUSTRIE, AND PAINEFULL TRAUAILE OF M. LOK, GENT

      London: Printed for Thomas Adams, 1612.. 3 preliminary leaves, 318 numbered leaves (some leaves misnumbered). Small quarto. Full calf in contemporary style, by Middleton. Top margin trimmed close, slightly affecting some headlines. Titlepage considerably soiled, and remargined on the inner gutter with the first word of the title and about 10 letters on the left margin supplied in expert facsimile. Some other leaves with scattered staining and soiling. Nonetheless, a good, sound copy. The first complete English translation of the eight books of Spanish historian Peter Martyr's DE NOUO ORBE..., one of the most important of all sources for the history of the discovery and conquest of the New World, from Columbus through the conquest of Mexico by Cortes. Martyr, an official in the Spanish royal court, was present when Columbus returned in 1493, and was actively involved on the highest level of administration in New World affairs for the rest of his life. Herein are the best contemporary accounts of all of the earliest explorations of the Caribbean, northern South America, and Mexico. This is thus the first English text in complete form of one of the most important pieces of all early Americana. Martyr published his history beginning in 1511, and separately and cumulatively until his death. The first complete edition of all eight books was issued in Latin in 1532. Martyr's work was first translated into English in 1555 by Richard Eden as THE DECADES OF THE NEWE WORLDE. That was the first major work in English about the New World, but it only included the first three of Martyr's books. The full translation of all eight books, by Michael Lok, was not issued until 1612, when the present volume was issued by printer Thomas Adams. An English Americanum of the greatest importance.

        Lachrimae lachrimarum

      [London: Printed by Humphrey Lownes,, 1612 & 1613]. or The Distillation of Teares Shede For the untymely Death of The incomparable prince Panaretus. [Bound with:] — Lachrymae Lachryma or The Spirit of Teares Distilled … The third Edition, with Addition of His Owne. 2 works in one volume, small quarto (179 × 140 mm). Nineteenth-century green straight-grain morocco by Thomson of Edinburgh (with ticket), lately rebacked to style, covers with blind decorative roll border and gilt ornaments inside corners, wide turn-ins gilt all round, gilt edges. Bookplate of Sir Thomas Brooke (1830–1908), of Armitage Bridge House, near Huddersfield. First work: white-line woodcut title with Prince Henry's arms, text within woodcut borders throughout, collates A-D4 (lacks final sig. D4, which has the woodcut border on recto but no text). Second work: white-line woodcut title with royal arms, text within woodcut borders on first 12 leaves, the remainder mostly letterpress save 2 leaves printed with white-line royal arms on black, collates A-B4, C8 (-C8, as issued), D-G4. Both works somewhat eccentrically collated, but textually complete. Somewhat closely trimmed, the second work neatly extended with plain paper at fore and lower edge margins to match the page size of the first, printed headlines and signatures in second work shaved. Overall, very good copies of two rare editions. Second and third editions of these funerary verses, the sombre theme echoed in the design, the text predominately set in deep black woodcut borders with funerary ornaments either side. The promising life of Henry Frederick, Prince of Wales (1594–1612), eldest son of James VI of Scotland and I of England, was publically celebrated from the beginning. Nativity poems, banquets, tilts, and masques attended his birth; in his life, he inspired the praise of authors such as George Chapman, John Davies, Michael Drayton, Henry Peacham, and Francis Bacon, who dedicated the second edition of the Essays (1612) to him; and his sudden death from fever (now thought to be typhoid) was mourned in print by Thomas Campion, Joseph Hall, George Herbert, and Walter Ralegh, among others. Sylvester (1563–1618), who had depended on Prince Henry as his chief patron, was particularly effusive in his grief. The first edition also includes elegies in English, French, Latin, and Italian by the royal tutor, Walter Quin. The third edition is in two parts: the second part has a letterpress divisional title, "Sundry Funeral Elegies …" dated 1613, and contains poems by John Donne ("Look to Me, Faith; and look to my Faith, God"), Sir William Cornwallis, Sir Edward Herbert, Sir Henry Goodyere, and Henry Burton. Both editions are bibliographically complicated, the first edition appearing in various combinations of sheets which "may exist in reimpositions which have not yet been adequately studied" (ESTC). STC designates this variant "Anr. ed.", two of the three copies cited matching this in having A3r line 4 "Cædars" and B3r line 10 "Hee". In this variant the colophon is omitted from D4r (this leaf lacking in this copy), though it retains the frame of woodcuts.

Employing the concept of moment- "the force with which the mover moves and the floating body resists" -and the principle of virtual velocities, Galileo far surpasses the hydrostatic considerations of Archimedes: "The new method enables Galileo to unify statics and dynamics into a new science of mechanics which became the foundation of modern physics" (Rose, The Italian Renaissance of Mathematics, p. 287). As noted above, the second edition may be distinguished from the first by the additional material contained therein; notably, Galileo drew attention to these additions by printing them in Roman type rather than Italic. Among these additions are Galileo's first announcements of the Sun's rotation period, his announcements of sunspots, and his discovery of the "horns" of Saturn.

        A pair of prints of early-16th century Tulip varieties

      [Frankfurt or Amsterdam: circa 1612-1647]. Copper engravings, with expert modern hand-colouring. 13 1/4 x 8 1/8 inches approx. 14 1/8 x 9 1/8 inches approx. (visible area). Framed and glazed. A fine highly decorative pair of 17th-century tulip portraits from Sweert's 'Florilegium' The Dutch florist Emanuel Sweert produced his 'Florilegium' at the behest of the Emperor Rudolf II of Austria. Six editions were published in Frankfurt (1) or Amsterdam (5) between 1612 and about 1647. The present pair of Tulip prints are amongst the most beautiful of the images produced for the 'Florilegium': the flowers of 24 varieties are shown with brief explanatory text beneath each one, all beautifully arranged in ranks that echo the patterned precision with which they were grown by 17th-century gardeners.Tulips today are highly appreciated for the joyful range of colours and the elegant shapes they present in early spring. At the time when the present images were printed, Tulips were the main horticultural obsession. Their growing was essentially a pastime for the rich and powerful. The search for new varieties (particularly the bi-colour or 'broken' varieties) reached its zenith in Amsterdam in the 1620s and 1630s with a sort of 'dot-com' speculation and investment frenzy when individual bulbs fetched more than a medium-sized house.
