Printed in double columns. Henry Ainsworth (1571-1622 or 1623), leader of the separatist congregation at Amsterdam, and controversialist, a fine type of the Elizabethan puritan-learned, sincere, earnest, and uncompromising. At first a Puritan, Ainsworth joined the Separatists who broke entirely with the Church of England. Driven abroad in the persecution of 1593, settled in Amsterdam. He attached himself to those who were styled 'Brownists,' who, under the name of 'Independents,' afterwards played so important a part in English history, and who were the ancestors of the 'Congregationalists' and other free churches of the present time. He and Francis Johnson founded an an independent church in Amsterdam. A falling out between the two created two separate congregations, whom they styled respectively Franciscan Brownists and Ainsworthian Brownists. Ainsworth is among the authors whose work traveled to New England in 1620 with the Pilgrims. Practically entire title page of Genesis volume laid-down, with contemporary light owner inscription of Henry Martin dated 1715, first few leaves chipped at lower corner with no loss, a few leaves, D-E marginal damp stains, Leaf F with upper corner torn away, approx. 5 x … [Click Below for Full Description]

SCHEFFER, Johannes Gerhard.
Alden & Landis 682/155; Klaversma & Hannema 1282 and 1283; cf. Cox I, p. 178. First edition of the Dutch translation of a celebrated ethnographic monograph on Swedish Lapland by the German-born professor Johannes Gerhard Scheffer (1621-1679). Scheffer's account contains valuable information on the Lappish culture, with chapters on their ceremonies, houses, diet, clothing, trading customs, handicraft, entertainment, hunting, as well as marriage and death customs. "This history long remained the main source of information on Lapland" (Cox). It has become the liveliest, detailed and uncondescending early modern account of the far north and its population, now known as the Sami. The present Dutch edition was illustrated by the engraver Jan Luyken, one of the most famous illustrators of the Netherlands during the second half of the 17th century. The plates depict the daily life in the north, but also the worship of various idols, encounters with gnomes, etc.Some plates with minor restorations, some occasional foxing and a few small marginal water stains on the last few leaves. Front cover slightly damaged. A very good copy.

Ramírez Carrillo, Alonso.
Peñafiel, Spain, 1621. Folio (31 cm; 12.25"). 15 ff.. Detailed here is the last will and testament of the choir master of Popayán, Colombia. Ramírez was an absentee office holder, for he lived in Peñafiel, Spain, indulged in this failure to take up his duties in the New World by the bishop of Popayán — who happened to be his uncle. The choir master's wealth was considerable and while not itemized as in an estate inventory, it is more than hinted at via the bequests here of real estate (with provenance), of silver and gold chalices and crosses, and of cash in the form of coin. The bequests also give an interesting picture of the size of his family and the ranking of nieces, nephews, etc.    Certified, contemporary copy of the original. Sewn. In good condition. Very legible notarial hand.

BORCHT, Willem van der (Guilielmus a CASTRO).
Bibl. Belg I, p. 319; BCNI 9630; Funck, pp. 282-283; STCV (8 copies incl. 4 incomplete). First edition, in Flemish Dutch, of a didactic satire, mostly in verse, by the Flemish poet and lawyer Willem van der Borcht or Guilelmus a Castro (1621/22-1668) in Brussels, with elegies and epigrams alternating with prose passages. It allegorically presents a mirror of self-knowledge and knowledge of the world, intended to improve the faults of the age and show the foolishness and vanity of the world. The fine plates by Antoine van der Does, showing scenes of rich and frivolous society, are of interest for the costume and morals of the time. The "Toe-ghifte", an integral part of the edition, but with its own title-page on 2D1, represents the world as a capricious woman. The portrait shows Van der Borcht at age 21 with the motto "nosce te ipsum", and a 2-line verse by Ericus Puteanus below. The 3 illustrations show realistic genre scenes, influenced by Rubens. Half the copies listed by the STCV lack the portrait and/or the engraved title-page. One illustration was printed over a crease in the paper, leaving a white line through part of the scene. In very good condition, with a minor water stain in the head margin of the engraved title, just touching its border. Binding lacking ties, with 1 sewing support broken at the back hinge, slightly wrinkled and a bit dirty, but still good. First edition of a satire of society, with plates made for it by Antoine van der Does.

PUGET, Louis de.
Blake, p. 365; BMC NH, p. 1621; Cole Library 1190; Hagen, p. 54; Horn & Schenkling 17511; for Puget and Lamy: NBG XLI, col. 177 & XXIX, cols. 298-300. First and only edition of well-illustrated observations on the structure of insect (and crayfish) eyes and a butterfly proboscis by a pioneer of French microscopy. It begins with two letters written by Puget to the Benedictine scientist François Lamy (1626-1711) in 1704, followed by 59 pages explaining the figures in the plates in great detail. The figures include original-size and microscopic (about 300x) views of the eyes of a crayfish, dragonfly and butterfly, as well as a butterfly proboscis and its interior structure.Although Robert Hooke had published his microscopic views of insects and other things in his 1665 Micrographia, little progress was made in the improvement of the microscope until the introduction of achromatic lenses in the mid-18th century. Puget (1629-1709), like Leeuwenhoek in Holland, therefore had to compensate for the limitations of his equipment with a keen sense of observation, insight and natural curiosity, experimenting, for example with a candle flame and other images reflected in the compound eyes. Unlike Leeuwenhoek, he came from a wealthy family and was able to acquire microscopes and devote his leisure time to scientific studies, and he helped to establish the Lyon Académie des Sciences. The present work forms his most important contribution to science.With some contemporary manuscript corrections. In very good condition, with only an occasional minor spot in the text and a few faint marginal … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sheets, Millard
Santa Monica, CA.: ca. 1960s. Watercolor painting. 15.5 x 40 inches. Design for the building at 1621 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica, CA. Subsequently Continental Shop/ Nawab of India. Adam Arenson: "a delicately curving building at 1619-1621 Wilshire Boulevard in Santa Monica. The color logo tiles and the terrazzo floors being the best hints at this building's Mid-Century Modern past -- given that the inside spaces were long since gutted. Note also the alley-side view in the picture above: for a building not on a prominent corner, the marble siding stopped when the facade did. 1957, photo 2012 The tile logo letters show an attempt, contemporaneous to the Home Savings work, to find a quick, recognizable way to mark the business with a colorful, artistic icon -- closer to the style of abstracted corporate icons for franchise recognizability.

St. Agnes, by Kempis, a history of the monastery, located near Zwolle, in which he served most of his long life as monk, priest, copyist and author; and (3) 'Vindiciae Kempenses,' a work by Jesuit hagiographer Heribert Rosweyde (1569-1629) regarding the dispute about Kempis' authorship of the I … [Click Below for Full Description]

Martial (Marcus Valerius Martialis)
Amsterdam: Apud Guihelm Ianssonium, 1621. Very good antiquarian condition. 32mo. (113 x 58 mm). 318 pp. including engraved title-page depicting cupids and satyrs. Contemporary Parisian binding by the Atelier Mace Ruette: red morocco elegantly gilt with superb assurance, centers inlaid with olive morocco, five raised bands on spine (beautifully rebacked), comb-marbled endpapers and pastedowns (marbling abraded inside front hinge; inscription on verso of front endpaper erased), ruled in red throughout, a.e.g. Fine contemporary Parisian binding, securely attributable to the Atelier Mace Ruette. Our example is gilt with the same tools and identical design as Esmerian (2nd sale) no. 8 (Smith, De Republica Anglorum, 1625) and No. 11 (Emmius, Graecorum Respublicae, 1632), both of which were printed by Elzevier, and bound by Ruette for H.-L. Habert de Montmort, Conseiller au Parlement de Paris. Mace Ruette (1584-1638) apprenticed to Dominique Salie and by 1606 he had opened his own shop. In 1629 he was appointed "administrateur de la Confrerie des libraires, imprimeurs et relieurs," which he served until 1634, at which time he succeeded Clovis Eve as "relieur ordinaire du Roi." Ruette was also a publisher of equal distinction, but he is best known as a binder who began experimenting with pointille tooling ca. 1620, a style of decoration that was to become a major feature of French bindings for decades. Upon Ruette's death in 1638 the post of "relieur du Roi" passed to his son Antoine. This volume has a very significant provenance: "Stanley 1813" (pencil inscription on first blank … [Click Below for Full Description]

AGRICOLA, Georgius
Basil: Ludovici Regis, 1621. Third Latin Edition. Hardcover. Very Good in a serviceable binding. 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. L … [Click Below for Full Description]

BORCHT, Willem van der (Guilielmus a CASTRO).
1621. [16], 271, [1] pp.First edition, in Flemish Dutch, of a didactic satire, mostly in verse, by the Flemish poet and lawyer Willem van der Borcht or Guilelmus a Castro (1621/22-1668) in Brussels, with elegies and epigrams alternating with prose passages. It allegorically presents a mirror of self-knowledge and knowledge of the world, intended to improve the faults of the age and show the foolishness and vanity of the world. The fine plates by Antoine van der Does, showing scenes of rich and frivolous society, are of interest for the costume and morals of the time. The "Toe-ghifte", an integral part of the edition, but with its own title-page on 2D1, represents the world as a capricious woman. The portrait shows Van der Borcht at age 21 with the motto "nosce te ipsum", and a 2-line verse by Ericus Puteanus below. The 3 illustrations show realistic genre scenes, influenced by Rubens. Half the copies listed by the STCV lack the portrait and/or the engraved title-page. One illustration was printed over a crease in the paper, leaving a white line through part of the scene. In very good condition, with a minor water stain in the head margin of the engraved title, just touching its border. Binding lacking ties, with 1 sewing support broken at the back hinge, slightly wrinkled and a bit dirty, but still good. First edition of a satire of society, with plates made for it by Antoine van der Does.l Bibl. Belg I, p. 319; BCNI 9630; Funck, pp. 282-283; STCV (8 copies incl. 4 incomplete).
