        Historie of the Raigne of King Henry the Seventh

      W. Stansky for Matthew Lownes, and William Barret, London 1622 - Second edition, first published in 1622. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Henry VII by John Payne, title within architectural woodcut border (McKerrow & Ferguson 224), woodcut initials and headpieces, text within ruled border with blank marginal columns for side-notes (one printed side-note on X1b). [iv], 248 pp. Folio. Large paper copy on thick paper of the second edition of Bacon's history of Henry VII. Bacon had promised the work to James I while on trial, and he quickly completed the work following his impeachment for taking bribes. "It should be seen in the context of humanist historiography rather than as a precursor of its modern methods. Bacon was keenly interested in the conventional topics of virtue and fortune, but was unconventional in placing a much stronger emphasis on fortune than virtue. The central lesson of The History of Henry VII was that a ruler must remain open to accident and ready to seize the opportunities it offered" (ODNB). ESTC S122252; Gibson 116b. Provenance: Robert Eglesfield (bookplate on verso of title-page); Joseph Dickinson (signature on slip dated 1823, on front pastedown); C. Geldart (signature on upper front free endpaper and numbered "26"); Robert S Pirie (bookplate, acquired from Seven Gables, 1963) Seventeenth-century calf, covers tooled in blind to a panel design, center panel of roll-tool and triple fillet border, spine in six compartments with raised bands, red morocco spine label, printer's waste on pastedowns, plain free endpapers.

        Description des Indes Occidentales, qu'on appelle aujourdhuy le Nouveau Monde . avec La Navigation du vaillant Captaine de mer Jaques le Maire, & de plusieurs autres

      Chez Michel Colin, Amsterdam 1622 - (11 x 7 1/4 inches). [6],103,[6]107-254pp. Engraved additional title, 17 engraved maps (16 double-sheet, 1 folding), 5 engraved illustrations in the text of the Le Maire narrative. Without the portrait of Le Maire as usual (found in only a small number of copies). Early eighteenth century sheep, covers ruled in blind, spine with raised bands in seven compartments, morocco lettering piece in the second, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, marbled pastedowns One of the classic descriptions of the Spanish conquests in the New World, including the first publication of Jacques Le Maire's journal of one of the greatest early Pacific voyages and circumnavigations: a work of great rarity and importance. This edition of Herrera includes the first publication of Jacques Le Maire's journal of one of the greatest early Pacific voyages and circumnavigations, that of Le Maire and Schouten in 1615 and 1616. Le Maire's journal, which occupies pp. 107-174 of this book, describes the voyage of trade and discovery, launched by one of the most agressive of Netherlands traders in this era of Dutch expansion. The expedition sailed around Cape Horn, explored the Pacific coast of South America, and pursued the search for Terra Australis. Inspired in part by Quiros and motivated by Dutch trading zeal, this was the essential precursor to Tasman's voyage; indeed Tasman made great use of Le Maire's mapping of the ocean. The Le Maire voyage, the last of the seventeenth century expeditions to search for the unknown continent from the east, was responsible for extensive discoveries in the Pacific, recorded in excellent detail on the numerous maps published here. These include maps of Le Maire's Pacific route and of New Guinea, the latter definitely establishing it to be an island. There are also five engraved views, showing the expedition in Patagonia, a Polynesian sailing canoe, the anchorage at Cocos Island, natives at Cocos, and the isle of Hoorn. The first section of this work is the first French (and second edition overall) of a portion of Antonio de Herrera's Historia General , first published in Madrid in 1601. This is one of the classic descriptions of the Spanish conquests in the New World, with important maps of the West Indies, the Americas, the coasts of Central and South America, the interior of Mexico, Terra Firme, and the west coast of South America, including some of the most important maps relating to the Pacific made to the time. The third section of this volume consists of brief accounts of other voyages into the Pacific, and the account of Pedro de Cevallos of the Spanish posessions in the New World. Two issues of this French translation were printed in Amsterdam in 1622. This copy has the first imprint recorded by Wagner. There were also Latin and Dutch editions in the same year, differing slightly in their makeup; Wagner assigns priority to this French edition. A work of great rarity and importance. Borba de Moraes p.400; European Americana 622/68; JCB (3)II:166; Sabin 31543; Tiele pp. 56-57, 314-316; Tiele-Muller 296; Wagner Spanish Southwest 12a. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Consuetudo, Vel, Lex Mercatoria: Or the Ancient Law-Merchant.

      1622. First Edition of Malynes's Lex Mercatoria Malynes, Gerard [fl. 1586-1641]. [Consuetudo, Vel Lex Mercatoria, Or the Ancient Law-Merchant. Divided Into Three Parts: According to the Essentiall Parts of Trafficke. Necessarie for All Statesmen, Iudges, Magistrates, Temporall and Civile Lawyers, Mint-Men, Merchants, Marriners, And All Others Negotiating in All Places of the World]. [London: Printed by Adam Islip, 1622 or 1629]. [xvi], 501, [3] pp. First and final blank leaves renewed. This copy bound incorrectly with a title page from a 1685 edition. Folio (10-3/4" x 7-1/2"). Recent period-style calf, blind rules and fillets to boards, gilt-edged raised bands, gilt ornaments and lettering piece to spine. Light toning to text, somewhat heavier in places, occasional faint dampstaining to margins, light foxing and spark burns and tiny ink spatters to a few leaves, faint bleed-through from early signature to head of dedication leaf. Light soiling and a few small chips to title page, light soiling to final leaf. Ex-library. Small inkstamp and annotations to verso of title page. A handsomely bound copy of a scarce title. * First edition, either the 1622 or identical (excepting the date on the title page) 1629 issue. Also known as the law merchant, consuetudinary law or, somewhat anachronistically, commercial law, lex mercatoria is a system of customary law that developed in Europe during the middle ages to regulate the dealings of mariners and merchants. The earliest significant compilations are the eleventh-century Rules of Oleron, the Laws of Wisby and the Hanseatic Laws of the Sea. Although lex mercatoria fell out of use during the seventeenth century, many of its principles were incorporated into the common law. They would later provide the foundation of the (U.S.) Uniform Commercial Code. Malynes' Consuetudo was the final significant contribution to this field. (Beawes's Lex Mercatoria Rediviva (1752) was an attempt to revive it.) Malynes was a commissioner of trade in the Low Countries and was frequently consulted by the Privy Council during the reigns of Elizabeth and James, a dynamic period of commercial expansion and colonization. He was one of the first writers on business practice, economic affairs and foreign exchange. These interests are explored at length in this po

        [three lines in Arabic, transliterated as] Turat [i e , Tawrat] Musa an-nabi, [then in Latin] id est Pentateuchus Mosis Arabicè

      Lugduni Batavorum: Ex Typographia Erpeniana Linguarum Orientalium. Prostant apud Iohannem Maire Small 4to (20.5 cm; 8.125"). [8 ff.], 458 pp., [1] f.. 1622 Edited by Thomas Erpenius (a.k.a., Thomas van Erpe) from an Arabic manuscript in Hebrew characters that Joseph Scaliger bequeathed to the Leiden University, and => printed at Erpenius' private press. Darlow and Moule say the manuscript is attributed to an African Jew. Erpenius (1584–1624), was a noted Orientalist, life-long friend of Casaubon, Arabic scholar, and professor at Leiden. It was on the advice of Scaliger that he studied Oriental languages. Following the example set by the Parisian François Savary de Brève (scholar and diplomat) who had a press and Arabic type, Erpeniuis had Arabic type cut for him and bought a press of his own so he could print his works. The title-page here has a large architectural woodcut border. The text is printed in Arabic with part of the title and preliminaries in Latin. Provenance: 18th-century signature of "M. Jo[hann]. Gottlob Stimmel" in lower margin of title-page; 20th-century ownership note of Verplanck Colvin (of Albany, NY) on front pastedown and his bookplate and rubber-stamp on rear pastedown; bookseller's label of John Howell; after ca. 1954 in The Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). Contemporary vellum over paste boards with slightly yapp edges; binding a bit sprung, rear hinge (inside) open. Age-toning, occasional foxing or a bit of soiling, an instance or two of old underlining; overall, in fact, a nice, clean, wide-margined copy.

        Sanctum provinciale concilium mexici celebratum Anno Domini millessimo quingentessimo octuagessimo quinto, Presidente in eo Illmo. ac Rmo. D.D. Petro Moya de Contreras Archiepo. Mexicano nunc vero ad instantiam et ex sumptibus Ill. ac Rmi. D.D. Ioannis de la Serna Archiep. Mexican. iussu regio editum

      Mexico City: Juan Ruiz, 1622. First edition. Folio, ff title page, [5a], 102: title page, 37, [2]. Text in Latin. Acts of the third Mexican church council, 1588. First section with titlepage (in very good facsimile on old paper) engraved by Samuel Stradanus of Antwerp, but executed in Mexico; second section, with separate title page; woodcut vignettes and tailpieces throughout. First edition of the decrees of the Third Mexican Council, held in 1585, the determinative council for the colonial epoch in New Spain and the other Spanish colonies. The council was summoned by Archbishop (and later Viceroy) Moya de Contreras, a most important figure in the colonial church. His great erudition, joined with his position as Grand Inquisitor -- the first in the New World -- and confidant of Phillip II, made his long rule (1574 - 89) of the Church in Mexico a pivotal one: he is credited with having brought the counterreformation to Mexico. Subjects covered in the first section of the work include printing of books (f. 4), Indian festivals (f. 35), instructions for clergymen working in Indian parishes (f. 49), heretics (f. 87), usury (f. 88) and concubinage (f. 92). The second section, with separate title page -- Statuta ordinata, a sancto Concilio Provinciali Mexicano III. anno Domini millessimo quingentessimo octuagessimo quinto ex praescripto Sacrosancti Concilij Tridentini -- consists primarily of strictly sacerdotal regulations (probably) necessitated by the Council of Trent.. The complete work was frequently reprinted in the eighteenth century. The secretary for the Council was Juan Salcedo, noted both for his holiness and learning -- he was first graduated Doctor of Canon Law in the University of Mexico. The Latin translation was by Pedro Hortigosa SJ, professor of theology at the University of Mexico for 44 years, the Archbishop actually being one of us pupils, and the theological consultant for the Council: Beristain calls Hortigosa's translation "terso y hermoso latin." This copy also has the dedication by Juan de la Serna immediately preceding the text (3 pp., followed by a blank) that is not mentioned in Medina, who calls for 4 leaves followed by 2 blank leaves, rather than the 6 that this copy possesses. Palau also calls for only 3 preliminary leaves. (Medina Mexico 343: Palau 293978: Sabin 48373 (saying "extremely rare"): also Beristain de Souza iii 43 (re Hortigosa) and iv 289 (re Salcedo). The binding is contemporary vellum, the original ties are still present, title inked on spine ("Concilio Mexicano"); small, almost imperceptible repair to vellum on spine. Very minor worming at bottom of about 50 pages, not affecting or even approaching the text. Unidentified (and perhaps unidentifiable) brand on lower edge. Despite the facsimile title page, quite nice copy of a very rare book

Le Mardelé. Dedié à Monseigneur de La Rochefoucault par P. Le Mardelé. Contient livre XIV, attribué à Hypsicles d'Alexandrie, et livre XV, d'attribution incertaine. Ouvrage qui comprend une collection de définitions, axiomes, théorèmes et leur démonstration sur les sujets de la géométrie euclidienne et de la théorie des nombres primitifs.

London: Printed by B.A. for Paul Man, 1622. [xvi], 78, [2] pp. Quarto (7-1/4" x 5-1/4"). Recent imitation calf, gilt title to spine. Woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces and decorated initials. Light toning to text, somewhat heavier in places, light soiling and blotted-out signature to title page, early annotation to verso. Ex-library. Bookplate to front pastedown. * Only edition. Powell was a notable poet, a man of letters and an industrious legal antiquarian. In this work, the Attourney's Academy and the Attornies' Almanack Powell offered guidance to lawyers concerning the location and use of records, mostly to settle title claims. All are mentioned favorably by Holdsworth, who notes that the study of early records was an important aspect of legal education. In a sense, these books helped students to locate material for study. They are also important sources for students of Shakespeare. (All are listed in Lee's Catalogue of Shakespeareana).

Der Buchblock durchgehend im unteren Drittel wasserrandig mit deutlicher Bräunung, vereinzelt hat die Kolorierung abgefärbt, 10 Blätter haben kleine \"Fenster\", wohl durch die chemische Beschaffenheit der Farben.

In diesem Zeitraum liegen schicksalhafte Ereignisse wie der Sieg der Reconquista, die Vertreibung der Mauren und Juden, die Entdeckung und Eroberung Amerikas, der Höhepunkt spanischer Macht unter Karl V. und der Niedergang der spanischen Seeherrschaft durch den Sieg Englands über die Armada 1588. Unter den dokumentierten Adligen finden sich an erster Stelle die \"katholischen Könige\" Ferdinand von Aragon und Isabella von Kastilien, König Philipp I. und Königin Johanna, Kaiser Karl V., König Felipe II., Fernando Cortes und Francisco Piçarro (Pizarro) sowie Adelshäuser mit wohlklingenden Namen wie: Asuña, Tasis, Toledo, Mendoça, Arellano, Sotomayor, Ribera, de la Torre, Davila, Zuniga, Guzman, Granada, Ponce de Leon, Portocarrero, Ayala, Cardenas, Andrade, Saabedra (Saavedra), Portugal u.v.a.

Universalgelehrter und Dramatiker. Durch seine Methodik und relative Neutralität gilt er als einer der ersten Naturwissenschaftler im modernen Sinne. 1558 veröffentlichte er die \"Magia naturalis\" (in der er unter anderem eines der wenigen existierenden Hexensalbenrezepte überlieferte). die ihm ersten Ruhm brachte. Weiters erwähnt er erstmals ein Wassertrommelgebläse zur Erzeugung eines kontinuierlichen Luftstrahles für eine Schmiedeesse in Nettuno südlich von Rom. Eine von ihm 1560 in Neapel gegründete Gesellschaft zur Erforschung der Natur. die Academia Secretorum Naturae . musste auf Befehl des Papstes aufgelöst werden.

        Schism dis-arm'd of the defensive weapons, lent it by Doctor Hammond and the bishop of Derry.

      John Sergeant (1622-1707) converted to Catholicism from the Church of England after researching the history of the early Church. He was ordained to the priesthood and undertook a career as a controversialist against Protestantism, writing many works. This one is a Catholic answer to Henry Hammond's (1605-60) Of Schisme, and John Bramhall's (1594-1663) A Just Vindication of the Church of England from the Unjust Aspersion of Criminal Schism. Hammond and Bramhall were leading Anglican divines of the high-church party, and in attacking them Sergeant reveals the influence that that party still commanded, even at its lowest ebb under Cromwell. His argument is largely a defense of the Papacy against those who would assert the historical independence of the Church of England. => This is the sole edition of this important Recusant work.It is also a volume that shows such controvery was definitely not ?dry?; for its presentation at our website, we photographed the start of Sergeant's explanation/defense of his personal animus against his antagonist, and also the ?Stationer's? description of the polemical feast to come, this worked out as a menu or "Bill of Fare"! Provenance: On the recto of the second front fly-leaf is a presentation inscription: "For my honnord & best frind, Master John Bulteel." The most likely John Bulteel is the one who was created M.A. at Oxford in 1661, and later served as secretary to Edward, Earl of Clarendon.

        A COURANTE OF NEWES FROM THE EAST INDIA. A TRUE RELATION OF THE TAKING OF THE ISLANDS OF LANTORE AND POLAROONE IN THE PARTS OF BANDA IN THE EAST INDIES BY THE HOLLANDERS, WHICH HANDS HAD YIELDED THEMSELVES SUBJECT UNTO THE KING OF ENGLAND...[caption title]

      [London], 1622. Small quarto. Modern half morocco and cloth, spine gilt. Lightly age-toned and stained, with light edge wear. Very good. This newsletter is probably the earliest surviving English bulletin of current information concerning events in the Far East and the East Indies. This newssheet reports the capture of the islands of Lantore (Great Banda) and Polaroone (Pulau Run) in the Banda Islands from the British by the Dutch East India Company. The islands had been discovered and annexed to Portugal in 1512, and were valued for their spices, especially nutmeg. Early in the 17th century the Dutch expelled the Portuguese. The British subsequently gained control of the islands from the Dutch for a brief period. Despite treaties, the Dutch attacked and expelled the British in 1621, as detailed here. According to ESTC, a SECOND COURANTE of news from the East Indies was printed in London on February 18. Lach notes that the Dutch and English produced several tracts during this period, each giving their respective accounts of hostilities in the East Indies and Banda in particular. The present COURANTE is among the rarest such works. ESTC locates a total of only five copies of this February 8 newsletter, at the British Library, Cambridge, Oxford, the Folger Shakespeare Library, and the University of Minnesota, and this particular title is not mentioned by Lach. Rare.

'After Thomas Digges's death [in 1595] his widow married Thomas Russell of Alderminster, whom in 1616 William Shakespeare named as an overseer of his will. The remarriage of his mother had literary repercussions for Leonard Digges. He went to University College, Oxford, in 1603, aged fifteen, and graduated BA on 31 October 1606. Having left Oxford, he returned briefly to London before embarking on a period of study in foreign universities. In 1611 it seems that he went to Spain with his friend James Mabbe, a fellow of Magdalen College, Oxford, who was secretary to the English ambassador, Sir John Digby. The evidence for their companionship in Spain is provided by a copy of Lope de Vega's Rimas (1613), now in the library of Balliol College, Oxford, which Mabbe sent to another Oxford friend, Will Baker. In a note to Baker on the flyleaf Digges compared Lope's sonnets to those of Shakespeare, which were clearly regarded, at least in Digges's circle, as the finest of their kind. In consideration of the accomplishments Digges acquired in classical and modern languages he was created MA at Oxford on 20 November 1626, and allowed to reside at University College, where he died on 7 April 1635 and was buried in the chapel' (ODNB).

        A DISCOURSE CONTAINING A LOVING INVITATION BOTH HONOURABLE, AND PROFITABLE TO ALL SUCH AS SHALL BE ADVENTURERS, EITHER IN PERSON, OR PURSE, FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF HIS MAJESTIES MOST HOPEFULL PLANTATION IN THE NEW-FOUND-LAND, LATELY UNDERTAKEN

      London, 1622. Small quarto. Brown morocco, spine gilt, t.e.g., gilt inner dentelles, by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Top edge trimmed close, affecting running title on a few pages. Lacks final blank. Minor soiling. Else very good. The first edition of this early and foundational work on one of the earliest colonies in the New World; it was also appended to later editions of Whitbourne's DISCOURSE AND DISCOVERY OF NEW-FOUND-LAND, which was first issued in 1620. Whitbourne was one of the founding fathers of Newfoundland, and this was his second discourse written to promote the young colony. This work was issued both with and without a twenty-page section of letters by Edward Wynne, describing Lord Baltimore's colony at Maryland (the letters are not present in this copy). Whitbourne came to Newfoundland as part of the colonization effort in 1615, returning to England in 1617 to bring out a group of Welsh colonists. His stated purpose was to "crowne that countrey of New-found-land with due praises, that she may...be justly called a Sister-land to this great Island of Britannia, Ireland, Virginia, New-England, and Nova Scotia." Whitbourne praises the island's "abundant heapes of nourishments & necessaries" and asks, "What seas so abounding in fish, what shores so replenished with fresh and sweet waters? The wants of other Kingdomes are not felt heere." He follows with a detailed description of the island's settlements, trade, and resources. This tract gives a glowing account of the possibilities of Newfoundland. Not in TPL, and the ESTC notes only nine locations. Rare.

        Heliodorus His Aethiopian history.

      Felix Kyngston for William Barrett, London 1622 - "FIRST EUROPEAN NOVEL IN ENGLISH 4to. pp. (iv) 336, 317-328. Roman letter, woodcut head and tail pieces and initials. Contemporary press mark and initials RLS to upper corner of title page, contemporary manuscript ex libris of Roger L'Estrange to fly, partially struck through. Light age-yellowing, occasional rust spots, a good, clean copy in contemporary limp vellum, lacking ties, two early paper library labels to spine. 19th century armorial bookplate of the Earl of Macclesfield to front pastedown, Shirburn Castle blind stamp to first few leaves. First translation into English of the oldest and best of all extant Greek novels, generally recognized as the first European novel. It was brought to light in modern times in a manuscript from the library of Matthias Corvinus, found at the sack of Buda (Ofen) in 1526, and printed at Basel in 1534. The story, developed in ten books, starts and ends in Ethiopia which gives the novel its title. In Charicleia, the daughter of the queen of Ethiopia, born white due to the effect of the sight of a marble statue upon the queen during her pregnancy, is raised by priests in Delphi, eventually becoming a priestess of Apollo herself. There she meets and falls in love with a noble Thessalian, Theagenes. The young lovers, of course, endure many trials and have many adventures. They flee Delphi with the help of Calasiris, an Egyptian priest, and are captured and separated by pirates. Once again reunited in Memphis, they head South, arriving in Meroe, the capital of Ethiopia, as prisoners of the Ethiopian army, then at war with Persia. At the last moment, just before Charicleia is about to be sacrificed to the gods, she is recognized as the true princess of Ethiopia and the two lovers are happily married. The rapid succession of events, the variety of the characters, the fascinating descriptions of natural scenery in Ethiopia, Egypt and Greece, the simplicity and elegance of the style, all give the 'Aethiopica' great charm. Heliodorus was an exceptional master of plot development and narrative style. Homer and Euripides were his favourite authors and Heliodorus was, in turn, admired by Byzantine critics and men of the Renaissance. Tasso modelled his heroine Clorinda, in his 'Gerusalemme Liberata', on Charicleia; Racine considered a drama on the same subject; and it formed the model of the 'Persiles y Sigismunda' of Cervantes. Heliodorus, famous Greek writer of romances, was born at Emesa in Syria. He lived towards the end of the fifth century of the Christian era, converted to Christianity and became Bishop of Tricca in Thessaly. The 'Aethiopica' was written in his early years, probably before his conversion. The English version is the work of Thomas Underdown who published several 16th century translations of the Classics. It is an important example of Elizabethan prose, remarkable for its prose and poetic vigour, which went on to inspire the new romantics such as Philip Sidney. This edition is the first to be modernised by William Barret. In the preface he claims his painstaking revision to have cleared the text from 'the barbarisms of antiquity' (DNB). Sir Roger L'Estrange (1616-1704), staunch royalist and Tory, accompanied Charles I and his army to Scotland in 1639, was captured at the outbreak of civil war and spent three years imprisoned in Newgate in daily anticipation of execution. On release he travelled widely delivering speeches and composing declarations to be made on the King's behalf, before fleeing to Holland. Returning to England some four years later, he published numerous anonymous broadsides attacking the army, becoming even more vocal after the dissolution of Parliament in 1659. On the Restoration he threw himself into the controversy surrounding the religious settlement, diversifying into the censorship and publication of newspapers and copious political pamphlets. Something of a womaniser, and so unpopular he was actually burnt in effigy by a London mob, L'Estrange was also a v [Attributes: Soft Cover]
