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.

        Devonshire with Excester Described And the Armes of such Nobles as have borne the titles of them.

      1616 - London, John Sudbury & George Humble, 1616, Latin text edition. 385 x 520mm. A good, early impression. Engraved by Jodocus Hondius, this is one of the most decorative maps of the county, with inset plan of Exeter, royal crest and armorials. This example comes from the only non-English edition of Speed's Theatre, produced for the Continental market. Its lack of success makes it comparatively scarce: it was only after 1918 that the British Museum obtained a complete Latin volume. CHUBB: xxiv; SKELTON 11.

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.

        Paraphrasis de los Psalmos de David: reduzidos al phrasis, y modos de hablar de la lengua Española, en el sentido que los dixo el Propheta segun que los entienden los Sanctos. Dedication to D. Felipe III and prologue by Fray Luis Gonçalez, O.P.

      Lisbon, En la officina de Pedro Crasbeeck, 1616. - Large oval woodcut of Christ on title page. Numerous woodcut initials. Several woodcut tailpieces and typographical dividers. Typographical headpiece. (6), 304, (5) ll. Leaf E1 signed "B" in error. Leaves 87, 115, 144, 163, 200, 254-255, and 258 misprinted as 78, 119, 134, 164, 100, 253-254, and 250, respectively.

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.

        Miscellaneorum theologicorum, quibus non modo scripturae divinae, sed et aliorum classicorum auctorum plurima monumenta explicantur atque illustrantur: libri tres, plurimarum observationum, in hac editione, insigni auctario locupletati : his insuper accessit, consimilis argumenti, liber item quartus, antehac nunquam pervulgatus

      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.

        "New England" from The General Historie of Virginia, New-England and the Summer Isles

      London, 1616. THE FIRST MAP OF NEW ENGLAND Copper-plate engraving: 117/8" x 137/8" References: Seymour I. Schwartz & Ralph E. Ehrenberg, The Mapping of America (New York, 1980), 96-99; Thomas Suarez, Shedding the Veil (Singapore, 1992), 127-9; M.B. Pritchard & H.M. Taliaferro, Degrees of Latitude: Mapping Colonial America (Williamsburg, 2002), n. 6. In 1614, five years after returning to England from Virginia, Captain John Smith returned to the New World, this time to the coasts of Maine and Massachusetts Bay - the region that would come to be known, thanks to the map that he subsequently published, as "New England." This map, the result of Smith's personal explorations and field surveys, covers the area from Penobscot Bay to Cape Cod. It is the earliest map devoted to the region and the foundational work of New England cartography. Smith's second New World voyage was initiated by the invitation of four London merchants who financed two ships that sailed in March 1614 with instructions to return with a profitable cargo. Smith made the Atlantic crossing in a relatively speedy six weeks, arriving off Monhegan Island near the Kennebec estuary. By that time the waters of New England, particularly Maine, were being visited by dozens of English and French fishing vessels a year. While the crew of one of Smith's vessels concentrated on catching fish and collecting other valuable commodities, Smith continued down the coast to chart and explore, lamenting the poor quality of existing maps: "[I] had six or seven several plots of those Northern parts, so unlike each to other, and most so differing from any true proportion, or resemblance of the Country, as they did me no more good, than so much waste paper, though they cost me more." In the course of his explorations, he named Plymouth Rock, describing its location as "an excellent good harbor, good lands, and no want of anything but industrious people." (This description proved the incentive, six years later, for the Mayflower Pilgrims to relocate here from their first, unsatisfactory settlement in Holland.) In mid-July, after just six weeks, Smith returned to England, but in that remarkably short span of time he had accumulated the raw materials for this highly accurate and thorough map of the New England coastline. The map, engraved by Simon van de Passe, was published as part of Smith's Generall Historie of Virginia, New-England, and the Summer Isles, one of the most important books in the history of the colonization and settlement of America..

Generally very good. Fourth French edition of this most important source book on the Indians of Mexico and Peru and on the natural history of South America. A Jesuit father, Acosta spent seventeen years in American missions in Mexico and Peru between 1571 and 1588. While in Peru he was instrumental in founding the printing press there, and its first productions, in 1585, were prepared by him. In addition to being an accomplished linguist, Acosta was one of the first to formulate a systemic theory of anthropology, suggesting a classification of different peoples into different types, which foreshadowed later ideas of social evolution. "As a natural historian, Acosta surpassed Oviedo. He took a philosophical approach to natural phenomena, searching for causes and effects in a spirit of critical inquiry....The subject of his moral history is pre- Columbian civilizations, particularly the Aztecs and the Incas, whose religions, customs, and governments he admiringly compares" - Delgado- Gomez. "He provided great detail in his descriptions of sailing directions, mineral wealth, trading commodities, Indian history, etc. Consequently his work operated more strongly than any other in opening the eyes of the rest of Europe to the great wealth that Spain was drawing from America" - Streeter. Acosta was a keen observer of New World plants. He "mentions most of the plants used in Peru as foodstuffs or as medicinals, and even the ornamentals. He remarks that the Indians loved flowers just for their beauty" (Shaw). There are also detailed discussions of plants exported to the Old World, such as ginger, and the use of coca in Peru.
