Caballo, Pietro.
Caballo (d. 1616) was a Florentine judge and legal writer who saw his "Resolutionum criminalium" achieve great acceptance upon publication in 1606 and as attested to by the several later editions in the 17th century. This dense work on criminal law begins with a title-page in red and black with type in a great variety of point sizes of roman and italic. The text is printed in double-column format and each "century" begins with a large woodcut headpiece and ends with a small woodcut tailpiece. This edition, "Hac quarta editione pluribus mendis expurgatae," has several very good indices of "arguments," words, and "things."

JONSON, Benjamin
London: William Stansby, 1616. Lacks initial blank as almost always, title-page laid down with some loss at the margins (engraved image being principally unaffected), preliminaries thumbed, intermittent water staining; margins a little smaller than usual yet overall a very good copy of a book typically encountered in poor condition.. Thick folio, recent full calf with crimson label lettered in gilt. First collected edition of the dramatic works and poems of the master playwright Ben Johnson, a milestone in literary history that forms a direct precedent to Shakespeare's first folio printed shortly afterwards in 1623. By publishing his plays in such an advanced format, Jonson elevated the role of dramatic arts from transitory entertainment to serious literature, as noted by the bibliographer H. L. Ford: 'It is noteworthy that no finer printed folio of plays was issued in that century, and it is the first printed in that size; the designation of them as 'Workes' occasioned considerable criticism amongst his fellows, but time has vindicated that they are such, rather than dramatic ephemera for a hungry stage.'Jonson's career was extraordinary even by the standards of his time. Born into humble circumstances he was a brilliant student but worked as a bricklayer before establishing a role in the theatre (John Aubrey depicts him reciting Homer with a trowel in hand). Jonson also served as a soldier in the British force sent to expel the Spanish from Holland in 1591, and narrowly escaped the gallows for murdering a fellow actor in a duel. Never a brilliant actor, Jonson was manifes … [Click Below for Full Description]

This book is entirely written in Latin. Pages are generally a bit foxed or toned but not heavily considering the age of the book. There is no writing or anotations to the book. Baudier was a French Neo-Latin poet, scholar and historian and attained his greatest fame as a latin writer. He was erudite and had great control of Latin. He was one of the best letter-writers of his time and he is considered one of the best poets of the Iambic style in humanism. . Good. 1616.

Smith, John
London, 1616. Small quarto. Full calf in antique style, leather label. Light dampstaining on top edge. Some careful expert paper restoration to upper foremargins of first ten leaves or so (including titlepage), and to a lesser extent on some later leaves. Map trimmed to the neat line, with a very small hole (4 x 25 mm.) at center in the ocean, neatly filled in. Some contemporary manuscript on verso of title- leaf and first text leaf. A nice copy. One of the great rarities of colonial Americana, Smith's A DESCRIPTION OF NEW ENGLAND... was, according to Streeter, "the pilgrim's principal guide to their American haven." Based on Smith's two visits to the New England coast in 1614 and 1615, this book did much to encourage later settlement in New England, preceding by four years the sailing of the Mayflower. In fact, Smith named Plymouth Rock, and described the place as "an excellent good harbour, good lands, and no want of anything but industrious people." Smith's first voyage was financed by a group of London merchants, with the primary objective being the search for whales and gold mines (the gold mines turned out to be "the masters device to get a voyage"). That first visit was relatively brief but afforded ample opportunities for trading with the Indians and for the collection of much geographical and natural history information. On his second voyage in 1615, Smith met with less success; thwarted by storms and pirates, he was eventually taken prisoner by a French warship. During his free time as a captive, Smith wrote A DESCRIPTION OF NEW ENGLAND..., destined to reveal the … [Click Below for Full Description]

First German edition, a significantly revised and reordered version of the Latin Nova Stereometria published the year before, a title 'generally regarded as one of the significant works in the prehistory of the calculus' (Gingerich in DSB).'Desiring to outfit his household with the produce of a particularly good wine harvest, Kepler installed some casks in his house. When he discovered that the wine merchant measured only the diagonal length of the barrels, ignoring their shape, Kepler set about computing their actual volumes. Abandoning the classical Archimedean procedures, he adopted a less rigorous but productive scheme in which he considered that the figures were composed of an infinite number of thin circulae laminae or other cross sections. Captivated by the task, he extended it to other shapes, including the torus' (ibid). According to Gingerich, Kepler was moved to produce this vernacular version when sales of the Latin version proved lacklustre. Caspar considers it a new work r … [Click Below for Full Description]

EPICTETUS
Ex Officina Plantiniana Raphelengii, Leiden, 1616. 64mo, text 7.1cm x 4.4cm (2.8" x 1.7") pp. 247, [9]. Greek and Roman letter, single column parallel text within double-fillet border, including final blanks; decorative piece on title, paper very slightly yellowed. A very good copy in contemporary plain vellum, yapp edges, blind-tooled double-fillet border, a.e.r. On recto of front endpaper, contemporary ms ex libris of ‘Justi Boelij’ and his quotation from St Augustine of Hippo, De Doctrina Christiana. A charming miniature edition of these two influential texts, forming a rare pocket-sized guide to life for any philosopher. Epictetus was a Stoic, who came to Rome as a slave and there studied philosophy under Musonius Rufus before his manumission. Banished by Domitian, he went to Epirus and opened his own philosophical school, which swiftly attracted pupils. His Enchiridion, here with a facing Latin translation, was a manual of Stoic ethics compiled by Epictetus’ most famous pupil, Flavius Arrian. In the Enchiridion, or ‘handbook’, Arrian distills the ideas of Epictetus’ Discourses and applies the Stoic precepts to daily life – it is appropriate that this text should be printed in so portable a form; a pocket reference work on dealing with life’s tribulations. For such a small text, by such a minor philosopher, the Enchiridion had a major impact. Popular amongst Christians and pagans alike, it was revived after its translation into Latin by Poliziano, published in 1497, and became exceptionally widely read. The Cebetis Tabula, often printed with the Enchiridion, is an exten … [Click Below for Full Description]

MERCATOR, Gerard
Amsterdam: Jodocus Hondius, 1616. unbound. Petrus Kaerius. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 14" x 19". Map of Mexico from the early 17th century at the height of the New World exploration when this area was considered New Spain. Describes the Western most part from Mazatlan down to Ixtapa. This map is beautifully decorated with ships and sea monsters. Markings in the shape of diamonds indicate silver mines. From the "Gerardi Mercatoris Atlas sive Cosmographicae" (Mercator-Hondius Atlas). Plate was originally made by Mercator and later added to by Hondius. Mercator (1512-1594) was an accomplished mathematician, cartographer, globe maker and engraver but is best known for the Mercator Projection. Incorporating the newly accepted fact that the world is round, Mercator was able to render longitude lines consistently straight on a chart. Although this requires some distortion, it was of great use for navigators, and is historically important, as it is still the most commonly used projection today.
