        Nueva Arte donde se destierran las ignorancias que hasta oy ha avido en enseñar a escivir. Eight separate engraved copper-plate calligraphic specimen pages from the work.

      - Palau 72708 et. seq. Salvá 2243. Rico y Sinobas p.56. Cotarelo y Mori 745. ‘Nueva Arte’ was published in four parts, 1616-1631. The bibliography is still somewhat confused, as complete copies (if it were ever clear what that might be), would appear to be chimeras, surviving examples being ad-hoc collections of odd plates (The copy in Seville described in ‘Un tesoro en la Universidad de Sevilla’, Catálogo de exposición, 1993, no. 97, is one such; and Cotarelo stresses that, for his bibliographical descriptions, ‘ no hemos hallado dos ejemplares exactamente iguales’. CCBPE lists no copies of parts 1 & 2, although they seem to be present in the BNM). The eight separate engraved plates here offered are from the first, second and third parts. ALL HAVE A DECKLE EDGE WITH WIDE MARGINS, SHOWING THAT THEY WERE NEVER COLLECTED AND BOUND IN PUBLISHED VOLUMES. Plates in the first part were engraved by Adrian Boon and Francisco de Villafrañe from Morente's original calligraphic manuscripts. Although apparently unhappy with the rendering of these engravers, it is not clear whether Morante (or son), had extra skill enough to engrave the later plates themselves. These plates exhibit his innovative method of linking letters and words without lifting the pen (‘el trabado’), so as to increase fluency and rapidity in writing without losing clarity or elegance. But they go further by exuberantly illustrating how the same technique might be used as decoration in the most ornate baroque taste. 1. The superb engraved title plate to the suite of plates of the first part, 'Cotarelo II. p. 66, lám no. 1. Numbered ‘1’ in top right hand corner, dated Madrid, 1615. A variant pull without the engraver’s signature [Adrian Boon] and with flourishes in the margins of the inner box. ‘En algunos ejemplares la lamina 1a. lleva unos rasgos alrededor de las letras dentro de la orla’ – Cotarelo, p.68. The other variant is reproduced in Ars Hispanae. Vol XVIII, section ‘Grabado’, p.278. The impression is printed askew on the leaf in our copy, suggesting a proof. 180 x 258mm. [plate mark]. 2. From the second part. Cotarelo p.69, n.8a (reproduced). 180 x 258mm. 3. From the second part. Dated 25 April 1625. Cotarelo p.70 n.29. 142 x 21mm., margins cut. 4. From the second part. Cotarelo p.71, n.33. 142 x 178mm. 5. From the second part. Dated Madrid 24 July, 1624. Cotarelo p.71, n.36. 142 x 212mm. 6. Engraved title plate to the third part dated 1627. Cotarelo p.72, n.1. 166 x 245mm. 7. From the third part. Dated 1625. Cotarelo p.73, n.12 (reproduced). 268 x 177mm. 8. From the third part. Cotarelo p.73, n.15 (engraving in one whole; there is a variant with the engraving divided in two parts). 172 x 162mm. Eight attractive and representative plates by the greatest master calligrapher of his day, of the utmost rarity in institutions, and probably all-but unprocurable today.

First edition and a fine set bound in contemporary red morocco with the arms of Louis Boucherat (1616-99), Chancellor of France from 1685-99, succeeding Le Tellier and serving under Louis XIV. Régis (1632--1707), was one of the principal expositors of Cartesian natural philosophy and this is his most important book on the subject. After finishing his classical studies in La Salvetat de Blanquefort, near Agen, Régis came to Paris, and studied under Rohault at the Sorbonne. Régis became a warm admirer and partisan of the philosophy of Descartes. He was then sent by Rohault to spread the doctrine, teaching with great success the principles of Cartesianism at Toulouse (1665), Aigues-Mortes, Montpellier (1671), and in Nicolas Lemery's laboratory in Paris (1680). He was elected a member of the Academy of Sciences in 1699. The present work presents the principles of Cartesian philosophy in a systematic way. Fine and handsome set. Bookplate of l'Abbé J.A. Gérard. ❧ Boucherat: Guigard, II, pp. 73-74. .

        Landschaft mit Festung und Ruine am Fluß.

      . Radierung und Aquatinta in Lavismanier, nach einer Zeichnung von Th. Wyck (1616-1677), auf Bütten. 14,5:19,5 cm. Auf die Umfassungslinie geschnitten und auf alten Sammlungsuntersatz montiert. Gedruckte Originalbeschriftung ausgeschnitten und verso aufgeklebt. Die Zeichnung stammte aus der Sammlung von J.F. Ettling, Frankfurt a.M. (Nr. 9). Literatur: Nagler 48 oder 49; Le Blanc 41.. Die Malerin, Zeichnerin, Radiererin und Kupferstecherin ist seit 1769 in Nürnberg erst Schülerin, dann Mitarbeiterin und seit 1772 Ehefrau des Malers, Radierers und Kupferstechers J.G. Prestel (1739-1808), mit dem sie gemeinsam eine Reproduktionswerkstatt betrieb, die zwar großen, aber weniger finanziellen Erfolg hatte. 1782 zog das Künstlerpaar gemeinsam nach Frankfurt am Main, 1786 jedoch siedelte sie alleine nach London über in der Hoffnung auf bessere Verdienstmöglichkeiten - eine vollständige Trennung vom Ehemann war wohl entgegen bisheriger Annahmen nicht angedacht. Dort arbeitete sie erfolgreich als Radiererin und Kupferstecherin und fertigte für verschiedene bekannte örtliche Verleger zahlreiche Reproduktionen nach deutschen, holländischen und italienischen Meistern an, z.B. für Molteno, Colnaghi & Cie. Ihre beiden Kinder, Ursula Magdalena (1777-1845) und Michael Gottlieb (1779-1845), die ebenfalls die künstlerische Laufbahn einschlugen, Gottlieb wurde darüber hinaus Kunsthändler, folgten ihr 1789 nach London; ihr Ehemann blieb mit dem Rest der Familie in Frankfurt am Main ansässig. Ein Wiedersehen der Eheleute hat nicht stattgefunden.

Jonson was the most prominent contemporary of Shakespeare, whose theater produced some of Jonson?s plays and who acted in at least one of them. Jonson?s posthumous reputation sank as Shakespeare?s rose, but the twentieth-century saw a positive reappraisal of his work, led in part by T.S. Eliot.

      Milan: Juan Baptista Bidelo 1616 - 2 parts in one vol., variant woodcut printer’s device on titles, some browning in places, textblock weak at one juncture, pp. [xii, including final blank leaf], 407; 448, 12mo, contemporary vellum over boards, a little soiled and worn, good A relatively early edition of this important text: Palau quotes Menéndez Pelayo [in translation]: ‘La Diana has influenced modern literature more than any other pastoral novel, more than the Arcadia of Sannazaro, more than Daphnis and Chloe, and had no rival until Bernard de St. Pierre. This influence did not extend to Italy, where the pastoral dramas of Tasso and Guarini held sway, but it was very great in France and England.’ Indeed, La Diana is a source for Shakespeare, in The Two Gentlemen of Verona. If the Diana did not find such fertile ground in Italy, it is curious that there should have been three sixteenth-century editions at Venice, and this at Milan in 1616 - all in Spanish, however.Montemayor, or Montemor as is his Portuguese original patronymic, wrote only seven books of the Diana, but ‘continuations’ as well as parodies and imitations were not long in coming, that of Alonso Perez being one of the first continuations. Cervates judged Montemayor’s verses harshly, but recognized the remarkable merit of his Spanish prose.

Bookplate of Alfonso Cassuto. His small, discrete armorial blindstamp in blank portion of title page. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION thus of a work written for the benefit of seventeenth-century Spanish nuns. Cáceres y Sotomayor was inspired to write this work by a nun who heard him preach on a psalm, and admitted that she was very jealous of monks, who had enough education to understand the words of the psalms that were sung throughout services every day: "que uno de los mayores desconsuelos que sentia su spiritu en el continuo exercicio del coro, era dezir, y cantar siempre lo mesmo sin entendello mas un dia que otro, y que tenia grande invidia a los Religiosos, pareciendole que de necessidad avian de medrar mucho en la devocion y en el spiritu: pues entienden lo que cantan" ( 6r). In Spain at this period it was strictly forbidden to translate the Bible: "lo qual està con mil razones prohibido, y dello avemos de huyr con todo cuydado" ( 6v). Cáceres y Sotomayor wrote this work specifically for such nuns, giving the Latin text followed by a lengthy paraphrase and explication, line by line and sometimes word by word. The taxation statement on the verso of the title page, the licenses on the recto of the following leaf, and the king's Alvará on the verso granting Fray Luís Gonçalves (i.e., Gonzalez?) a ten-year privilege for this book, are all in Portuguese. The colophon, dated 2 January 1616, is in Spanish. Fr. Antonio de Cáceres y Sotomayor was a native of Cáceres, in Estremadura, Spain. He entered the Dominican Order and became Archbishop of Astorga, a member of the King's council, and confessor to King Felipe III. He died in 1615, and the book was brought to press by the Dominican Fr. Luis Gonzalez (or Gonçalves?), who edited it and provided some preliminary matter, including a dedication to the king, which Cáceres y Sotomayor had planned, and a preface to the reader, explaining in more detail how he came to publish the work.Curiously, Felipe III of Spain, who ruled in Portugal as Filipe II, is referred to on the title page and elsewhere in this book printed in Lisbon as Felipe III.---- Arouca S483.

      Excudebat Iosephus Barnesius, Oxford 1616 - Small quarto. Collation: [par.]4 2[par.]4 A-3K4 3L*4 3L-4L4 4M2 (lacking final blank leaf 4M2). Pagination: [16], 439, 444-452, [8], 453-645, [1] pp. FIRST COMPLETE EDITION, and the first edition printed in England. Scarce: ours is apparently the only copy in the market; no copy has appeared at auction in over 35 years. Nicholas Fuller (c.1557-1623) was an English Hebraist and theologian whose skill in Semitic languages was recognized by his contemporaries including Buxtorf. Yet there are only two extant published writings to his name: the present work ("Miscellaneorum theologicorum," a.k.a. "Miscellaneorum sacrorum libri"), often reprinted, which contains a series of comments on difficult or controversial biblical texts, and the "Dissertatio de nomine Yaweh." "Fuller's writings contain ample evidence of his expertise as a Semitic scholar. It is evident from the comments he makes in 'Miscellaneorum sacrorum libri' that he recognizes the importance of cognate languages such as Syriac, Arabic, and Aramaic for understanding the Hebrew Bible, and is clearly well versed in them. He also appreciates the comments of medieval rabbis for elucidating textual difficulties. While he draws much on the leading Christian transmitters of Hebrew learning such as Nicholas de Lyre, Pagninus, Muenster, Tremellius, and Fagius, he often records his debt to the principal Jewish exegetes and grammarians. He obviously had firsthand knowledge of what he calls the 'rabbinica expositio' of certain words. He cites Rashi frequently. He refers to David Kimchi as 'doctissimus Hebraeorum grammaticus' (Critici sacri, ix.2, 862) and quotes from his grammar and lexicon. He regards Ibn Ezra as a leading rabbinic authority and describes him as 'magni nominis rabbinus' (Critici sacri, ix.2, 892)" -- Oxford DNB. The present edition contains an entirely new book (Lib. IV) and Fuller's autobiographical preface, upon which the entry in Wood's Ath. Oxon. (II, 327) was founded. Books 1-3 were first published at Heidelberg in 1612; for the present edition these were corrected by Fuller himself and printed under the author's own supervision by Joseph Barnes, the first printer of the Oxford University Press: "In 1585 the University lent 100 Pounds Sterling to Joseph Barnes, bookseller of Oxford, with which to establish a press, and an ordinance of Star Chamber of the following year specially allowed one press and one apprentice at Oxford, besides a chief printer. It is know that Barnes lives first in a house in the High Street, and next at what is now St. Mary's entry, and there worked as sold Printer to the University until 1617, most of the products of his press being theological, whether sermons or treatise" (Madan, A Brief Account of the University Press at Oxford, p. 25). Barnes died in 1618, but "during his lifetime his shop seems to have been a convivial meeting place for college fellows and may have circulated London newspapers, making it a precursor of later coffee-shops" (Cambridge History of the Book in Britain vol. IV [1557-1695], p. 669). REFERENCES: Madan, Oxford Books, p. 105. STC (2nd ed.); 11461. FINE COPY.

        Cumberland and the Ancient Citie Carlili Described With Many Memorable Antiquities Therein Found Observed/Carlile (inset)

      London 1616 - Engraving with extraordinary original hand color. Sheet size: 16 1/2 x 21 3/4". Inventory#: p250pmat. From the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine was the first complete atlas of the British Isles ever produced, containing 67 maps of the counties of England, Wales and Ireland, together with maps of the Isles of Wight and Man and also the Channel Islands. This intricately detailed map is a prime example of Speed's particular style and talent. The uncolored editions of Speed's maps are classic and highly sought after, as they reflect the true quality of Speed's work unhindered by colorists. The color on many Speed maps was generally applied years after they were produced, occasionally by private collectors. To all those interested in cartography, the name of John Speed is synonymous with early county maps of Great Britain.  His predecessors, Saxton, Norden, and one or two lesser figures had laid the groundwork for the first mapping of Britain in the days of Queen Elizabeth.  By the end of the 16th century, however, the increase in travel and commerce had created a need for better maps, and Speed's quickly replaced those of his predecessors.  Not only were they more accurate, but undoubtedly the beauty of the engraving, the fine lettering and elaborate ornamentation appealed to the original buyers as much as they do to us today.  Speed's atlas was so ambitious and of such high artistic and intellectual merit that it remained the standard reference for Great Britain until the beginning of the eighteenth century.  The atlas was so highly acclaimed that editions continued to appear until the 1770's. Speed was one of the earliest English antiquarians, and his interest in history led him to add vignettes to his maps of great past events, together with town and architectural plans.  Most maps, for example, contain representations of battles that occurred in the given county, of ancient artifacts and monuments, such as Stonehenge, and of the great cathedrals and palaces of medieval and Tudor England.  The plates were engraved in Amsterdam by the great Dutch mapmaker Jodocus Hondius and exhibit the highest level of craftsmanship and artistic embellishment, reflecting the pervasive and appealing Mannerist style of the period, with strapwork and fretwork cartouches, heraldic crests, and costumed figures.  The decoration and accuracy of Speed's maps, particularly with regard to the lavish use on each map of the coats-of-arms of that country's early leading nobles, inspired the later British county maps of Blaeu and Jansson.
