"Masson fut un des savants hommes du XVIe siècle qui se sont occupés avec le plus d'ardeur des origines de notre histoire nationale, et qui ont ouvert la voie si glorieusement suivie par les bénédictins. Ses ouvrages, qui roulent presque tous sur la Gaule, sont très recherchés" (Larousse). Belle marque d'imprimeur sur la page de titre, et beau portrait hors-texte de l'auteur gravé par Gaultier.

SELDEN (John)
[London: s.n.], 1618. First edition, third variant, small 4to, [6], xxii, [12], 491, [5]pp., title page in red and black, in this edition p.249 is misnumbered 149 and line 1 has "little"; contemporary calf, rebacked, red morocco label, a good clean copy with wide margins. "The most celebrated of Selden's treatises from this decade, 'The Historie of Tithes' (1618), marked a major refinement in his theory and practice of history. Dedicated to Sir Robert Cotton, it praised his 'inestimable Library', which assured 'a curious Diligence in search after the inmost, least known and most usefull parts of Historicall Truth'. The preface recommended the scrutinizing of earlier interpretations and of all evidence with a searching, but moderate philosophical scepticism, which helped to clear away unsound interpretations and to promote soundly based truth ........ A 'Review' at the end of the 'Historie of Tithes' provided a brief history of the Roman law to show how it could not rightly claim to have ruled even western Europe in an unbroken sequence and pictured William I, his barons, and those 'learned in the laws' (identified as 'the common Lawiers of that time, as Godric and Alfwin') gathering together as a parliament in the fourth year of the conquest to hear and confirm the 'former Laws of the Kingdome'. This vivid image of the historical triumph of the king-in-parliament appeared just in time for Selden's political career of the following decade. King James and his favourite, the marquess of Buckingham, forced Selden to withdraw Historie of Tithes from circulation, apologize to the … [Click Below for Full Description]

FLORUS, Lucius Annaeus
By William Stansby, 1618. JAMES II'S COPY? FIRST EDITION thus. [xxiv], 503, [3]. last blank. Roman letter, some Italic, text within box rule. Engraved architectural title border signed "Sim Pass scu.", [Simon van de Pass], small floriated woodcut initials, woodcut head pieces. Light age yellowing, first few leaves very slightly dust soiled. A very good copy crisp and clean in contemporary polished calf, covers bordered with a triple blind rule large blind arabesque at centers, spine with three blind ruled raised bands, joints and tail worn. C17th autograph 'York' on pastedown, possibly, James, Duke of York, later James II. First edition of Edmund Bolton's translation into english of Florus' Roman history in a high quality contemporary calf binding. On p. 503 Bolton signed the work with his initials "translated into English by E.M.B.", i.e. Edmund Maria Bolton, and also signs the dedication with his pseudonym "Philanactophil". Florus' history, known as the 'Epitome of all the Wars during Seven Hundred Years', is an abridgment of Roman history up to the age of Augustus with special reference to war. The style is rhetorical, and Florus is sometimes brief to the point of obscurity. His identity and names are not known for certain, though he is commonly called Lucius Annaeus. He lived in the second century AD and is variously identified with the Florus who was poet-friend of the emperor Hadrian. This work is often described as an epitome of Livy, and no doubt owes much to that author, who is sometimes quoted verbatim, but Livy is by no means the only source, and Florus frequentl … [Click Below for Full Description]

Knuttel, Kerkgeschiedenis, p. 242; Rogge, Remonstr. geschr., p. 96; STCN (2 copies). Very rare re-issue, enlarged with an index and several documents, of a history of the Dutch religious controversies that arose during the Seven Years Truce. The work includes an almost verbatim report by Bernard Dwingelo of the acts of the Synod of Dordrecht (1618-1619), which ended with the official condemnation and banishment of one of the two parties, the Arminians or Remonstrants. The main issue had been the Calvinist article of faith regarding the issue of predestination, which was rejected by the Leiden theologian Jacob Arminius (1560-1609). Arminius's more liberal views were opposed by his strict Calvanist colleague Franciscus Gomarus (1563-1641).Title-page slight browned and thumbed, boards rubbed along the extremities. Overall in very good condition.

[LONDON - PHARMACOPOEIA]. [ROYAL COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS].
Klaversma & Hannema 1179-1180; STCN (1 copy, lacking frontispiece). Wellcome IV, p. 365; WorldCat (5 copies). First and only edition of a Dutch translation of the London Pharmacopoeia, which had appeared in dozens of Latin (beginning in 1618) and English (beginning in 1649) editions. Although a slightly revised Latin edition had appeared in 1677, the Dutch publisher Ten Hoorn apparently based his translation on the 1650 edition, so that his readers miss out on the recipe for Irish whiskey. It nevertheless contains much interesting information for Dutch readers. Among the many ingredients used in the recipes were the wonderful horn of a unicorn, the skull of a man killed by violence (translated as "the skull of a man who died in good health"), twelve types of excrement (for which the Dutch translator used five different words) and fresh cheese (pp. 26-28). A list of other medical titles printed and sold by the publisher appears on the final pages.With a bookplate. Binding soiled and spotted, text with some spots and a few small holes; lacking front endpapers. A good copy of a rare pharmacopoeia.
