The inside pages, however, are original, intact and complete. Title hand written to front and to small paper label on spine. Inscription to main title page. First and last few pages slightly rubbed at edges. Occasional small marks. 263, 138pp. Theological argument about Tythes, published in the reign of James I of England. Also bound in is Philologicall Passages Examined. The book was published in answer to John Selden’s History of tithes which argued that clergy had a legal but not a divine right to tithes and that tithes were not ordained by God's law. This was seen as implying a separation of state law and divine law, challenging the Divine Right of Kings.

Daniel, Samuel
Printed at London Cum Privilegio. 1621. Second Edition. Hardcover. 20th century three quarter sheep over marbled boards with contrasting spine label bearing gilt titles, spine ends and corners a little rubbed, imprimatur leaf present, title within ornate woodcut architectural border, title trimmed at outer edge to just within border, a few small marks or stains including a small burn hole to foredge margin of leaf C5 just touching a couple of letters; A4 B-T6 V3 (lacks final blank V4); STC 6249. Samuel Daniel (1562-1619) was a poet and historian whose family origins are somewhat obscure, although it is thought he was born in North Somerset. It is known that in the early 1580s he was educated at Oxford from where he left without taking a degree. His poetry appears in print from 1591 and by 1594 he was recognised as one of the foremost poets of his day. Spenser in 1595, in Colin Clout's Come Home Again, described him as surpassing everyone in sight, and Shakespeare had begun to borrow from him freely, especially for his narrative poems and sonnets. Daniel turned to writing history in prose much later in his career, although he had written epic historical poems. In 1612 he published a prose history of the Norman conquest, this work became the first part of his Collection of the History of England, the complete edition of which was published in 1618. The work is significant because of way in which Daniel broke free from the historical writing of the past, writing that had sought evidence of divine providence or to support a political orthodoxy. Daniel examined sources in detail … [Click Below for Full Description]

Plautius, Caspar.
[Linz], 1621. Folio (32.6 cm, 12.875"). Engr. t.-p., [2] ff., 101, [1] pp. (lacks final blank leaf); 18 plts.. Curiously the dedicatee of this work, Caspar Plautius, is certainly also its author, writing under the pseudonym of Honorius Philoponus. Plautius was abbot of Seitenstetten in Lower Austria, and no doubt wrote as a compliment to a fellow Benedictine: Bernard Buil or Boyl of Montserrat, appointed by the pope vicar general of the Indies, who, with others of the order, accompanied Columbus on his second voyage as missionaries. In the style of a medieval legendary, Nova typis transacta navigatio novi orbis Indiae occidentalis relates first the westward voyage of St. Brendan, then the exploits of the Boyl and his fellow monks, including some description of the customs of the American native peoples they met, with their lands, their agriculture, their feast customs, et al. Boyl's missionary enterprise failed, and sadly he is now only remembered for his mordant criticism of Columbus.    This book bears an ornate, emblematic engraved title-page, with portraits of St. Brendan and Boyl and more, and no fewer than 18 leaf-filling plates by Wolfgang Kilian. These plates, which mix fancy and realism in entirely engaging ways, include a portrait of Columbus, a scene of St. Brendan celebrating mass on the back of a whale, botanical images of the marvelous Peruvian potato, and numerous views of the missionaries' interaction with the natives, some friendly, and some not— the unfriendliest being notably violent and gory. Also, on p. 35–36 is given an example of purported native Amer … [Click Below for Full Description]

AGRICOLA, GEORGIUS
Basil, Ludovici Regis, 1621. Third Latin Edition. Hardcover. Folio (8" x 12-1/2") bound in library buckram; irregularly paginated: [10], 502, [58] pages. Illustrated with 273 woodcuts, many full and half page, some signed with the monogram "RMD," and generally attributed to Hans Rudolf Manuel Deutsch (fl.1525-1572) or, less commonly, Blasius Weffring. Previously published in 1556 and 1561, this edition seems scarcer than either of the previous. PRINTING & THE MIND OF MAN 79: "The first systematic treatise on mining and metallurgy and one of the first technological books of modern times." Herbert Hoover, who first translated this book into English, described this title in his autobiography as "the first important attempt to assemble systematically in print the world-knowledge on mining, metallurgy, and industrial chemistry. It was the great textbook of those industries for two centuries and had dominated thought and practice all that time. In many mining regions and camps, including the Spanish South America, it was chained to the church altar and translated by the priest to the miners between religious services." The book combines a profound technical and financial knowledge of mining with an underlying interest in the health and daily routine of mine workers. The woodcut impressions are strong and dark. As customary with this title, there is browning throughout, occasionally heavy. Small piece of title page repaired with no loss of text or illustration; ink names of David Stuart dated 1771 and Joseph Robertson dated 1830 on title page.

PHILOPONUS, Honorius (pseudonym of Caspar PLAUTIUS, O.S.B.)
1621. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good copy of a scarce, marvelously illustrated book. Folio (7" x 11-1/4") in contemporary full blindstamped vellum bound with a 17th century religious work. Illustrated with an engraved title page, 18 numbered engraved plates, and the "Owl" plate, not found in most copies. The book begins with a lengthy and fantastic account of the Atlantic voyages of St. Brendan, the 5th century Irish monk. Most of the book describes the exploits of the Benedictine priest Bernard Buil of Montserrat, who accompanied Columbus on his second voyage in 1493 to Haiti and led a team of papal-appointed missionaries to the peoples of the Americas. One of the most curious and interesting volumes of Americana with its mixture of fantasy and authentic details of Caribbean life in both text and its wonderful plates including: Columbus with a hemispherical map showing America (signed by Wolfgang Kilian); St. Brendan celebrating mass on the back of a whale with the coast of Africa to the east and to the north the mythic island of St. Brendan; cannibals attacking and roasting members of Columbus's crew; indigenous fruits including the pineapple; and more. All of the impressions are dark and strong; all are trimmed on one side about a half-inch into the image. The upper corner of the plate of the pineapple and potato lacking and replaced in expert facsimile. The specimen of printed music on the bottom of pages 35-36 represents an early printed example of Native American chants.

N/a
London - Ex Typographia Societatis Stationariorum, 1621 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Hardbound in paper covered boards. Very scarce. Only three copies are noted on the ESTC. Joannes Susenbrotus (c1484 - c1543) was a German humanist, teacher of Latin, and author of textbooks. He wrote several books in Latin, amongst them a Latin textbook Grammaticae artis institutio and a collection of Christian poems. His rhetorics textbook Epitome troporum defines 132 tropes and figures and gives examples of their use in ancient literature as well as references in contemporary books on rhetorics. Susenbrotus' textbooks spread his name to pupils all over Europe. William Shakespeare seems to have known Epitome troporum, since - as T. W. Baldwin pointed out - he uses numerous examples from Susenbrotus' book in his works. He is also a well-known rhetorician to other Elizabethan writers and poets such as Gabriel Harvey, Thomas Nashe and Thomas Watson. On 12 March 1615, students of Trinity College, Cambridge, played the Latin comedy, Susenbrotus, or Fortunia, probably written by John Chappell, in the presence of King James I at Royston. As late as 1660 the English educationalist Charles Hoole recommends Susenbrotus' Epitome as a textbook for grammar schools. The volume is bound with Thomas Farnaby's 'Figurae Tropi et Schemata' (1616). Only one copy of this is noted in existence at Aberdeenon the ESTC. Thomas Farnaby (c1575 - 1647) was an English schoolmaster and scholar. His works chiefly consisted of annotated editions of Latin authors Juvenal, Persius, Seneca, Martial, L … [Click Below for Full Description]

Over the bookplate in contemporary hand: "G.F. Francus de Frankenau Med.D. & P.P./ Hafniæ 1709". ¶ First edition of what is perhaps the main work on artillery from the 17th Century, by one of the most highly regarded experts on artillery, the military scientist Pietro Sardi (1559 - 16?).The important "l'Artiglieria", which contains detailed descriptions of land- and navel-artillery, cannon and gun barrel production, saltpeter and gunpowder, ballistics etc., etc.,constitutes Sardi's most important work, and it occupies an absolute central place within military science of the 17th century. In the 17th century, military scientists were not generally aware of the exact qualities and abilities of saltpeter, e.g. that it became finer and purer each time it was boiled. Pietro Sardi was one of the leading scientists in the field of gunpowder and saltpeter at the time, and it is in his "L'Artiglieria" that his important theories on saltpeter are developed.
