        A Catalogue and Succession of the Kings, Princes, Dukes, Marquesses, Earls, and Viscounts of this Realme of England, since the Norman Conquest, to this present year 1622. Together with their Armes, Wives and Children; the times of their Deaths and Burials, with many of their memorable actions

      London , 1622 The full set of titles on the title page continues: 'Collected by Ralph Brooke, Esquire, Yorke Herald and by him enlarged with amendment of divers faults committed by the printer in the time of the Author's sicknesse.' This very early peerage was first published in 1619 and was the centre of controversy mainly because peerages were a hotly contested issue. The book had errors, blamed by the author on the printer and blamed by factions opposed to Brooke on Brooke himself. Brooke was a Yorke Herald of Arms (an officer of arms at the College of Arms) from 1593-1625 and his main opponent in this was William Camden, a fellow Herald. The row is preserved for us in their writing - in Brooke's Dedication and Foreward to the book; in his critique of Camden; and in Augustine Vincent's published critique of Brooke (Vincent was a friend of Camden). This copy is the revised 1622 edition. It has a decorative title page; dedication 'To the High and Mighty Prince, James, King of Great Britaine, France, and Ireland, etc'; foreward for the reader 'To the Honourable and judicious Reader'; the main text with numerous coats of arms; and 'A Table of the severall Catalogues contayned in the Booke,'. It has 394 pages (although it reads to 392 because page numbers 385 and 386 have been used twice). In full leather binding with raised bands. The binding is old and worn - the spine joints have cracked and the binding is held on by the stitching. The boards and spine are complete but scuffed. There is a book plate of The Right Hon John De La Warr pasted to the inside of the front board and a small ink signature of Charlotte Mac Carty and an unreadable signature on the title page. There are 2 sets of initials on the inside of the front board. There is a quantity of hand written notes and correspondence from a previous owner which look to be an attempt to establish which John De La Warr owned the book. There are several contenders - the earliest being the 6th Baron (1663-1723). The pages are slightly age-browned but very clean and sound. There is occasional light pencil annotation of a scholarly nature.The reverse of the final page has some ink notes which are illegible and the rear endpaper is splitting away from the book at the top.

        The Historie of the Raigne of King Henry The Seventh

      London: by W. Stansby, and William Barret, 1622. Folio, [vi lacking initial blank but including portrait and woodcut title], 248 pp. Fine engraved portrait of Henry VII by John Payne, title within elaborate woodcut border of columns, strapwork, and scrolling vines, woodcut head- and tailpieces, initials, text within ruled borders. Contemporary calf, sides with borders double-ruled in blind, rebacked. Title with early inscription ÒRebecca Lytton my wifeÕs book.Ó She was married to Sir Rowland Lytton MP. First edition of what is usually called the earliest English historical monograph. ÒHenry the Seventh was almost entirely composed in the aftermath of BaconÕs fall from grace in 1621. He sent a copy of the manuscript to James I in October of that year, a gesture which has been interpreted as an attempt to gain favour by presenting the king with a flattering portrait of his ancestor. Others have pointed out that some aspects of HenryÕs character as sketched by Bacon are less than attractive. He is described, for example, as the ÔSalomon of EnglandÕÑa reference to the heavy burden of taxation he imposed on his people. Whatever BaconÕs true intention there is no doubt that subsequent accounts of Henry VII have been strongly influenced by his portrait of a wise, circumspect, and often inscrutable monarchÓ (Finch). Gibson distinguishes two ÒeditionsÓ of 1622, noting that one is a line-for-line reprint of the other, but adds that Òseveral copies, particularly those in which the errata are wholly uncorrected, are made up from quires of both early and late edns. of the bookÓ (p. 100). The present copy, with the all listed errata uncorrected, is one of those copies with mixed edition points. STC 1158/9; Gibson 116a/b.

        Historia Anglicana Ecclesiastica a primis genti . includes "Historia Wicleffiana" which was not published separately, and Edmund Campion's "Narration de divortio Henrici VIII".

      Duaci : [ either Ex typographia or Sumptibus] Marci Wyon (publisher details not clear because of missing title page). 1622 - Folio sized volume in contemporary full leather binding with six raised spine bands and blind-stamped border rules on front and back; pp. [22], 1-660 (Main text), 661-732 (Historia Wicleffiana Eiusdem Auctoris), 733-740 (Narratio de Divortio Henrici VIII Regis), 741-779 (Catalus Ex Anglico Ioannis Speed Latinus), [1] (Summa Privilegii). Head- and tail- pieces, ornate initial letters and printed marginalia throughout. Errata on verso of final leaf. A few pagination errors: p744/745 and p770/771 omitted and p290, p747 and p777 mis-numbered as 284, 752 and 769 respectively. Binding is very sturdy and surprisingly well-preserved including the joints: the only major flaw is a 5cm split to upper front hinge with a some loss to head of spine; lesser flaws include bumping with light wear to fore-corner tips, a 5 cm surface crack (not split) to upper rear hinge; a small number of ancient worm holes and a few light scuffs to rear board, and front and rear paste-downs are missing. Text block is firm with a few light spots to some leaves, but leaves are generally clean and very clear, and without any inscriptions, annotations, etc; and last leaf has section of lower corner missing, affecting a couple of words of errata paragraph. However the major flaw with this volume is the missing title page and the damaged first leaf where only a remnant of it remains (here the ornate initial letter M and underneath text survives). Apart from the text missing at beginning of front matter, main text and other sections are complete. An wonderful volume, nonetheless, with complete main texts and particularly impressive head and tail-pieces and initial letters. PLEASE NOTE: This is a heavy item and extra towards delivery cost may be requested. An enquiry is recommended - especially for overseas delivery. [Attributes: First Edition]

Common mutuall Duties betwixt Man and Wife. III. Particular Duties of Wives. IV. Particular Duties of Husbands. V. Duties of Children. VI. Duties of Parents. VII. Duties of Servants. VIII.

      London, Printed by John Haviland for William Bladen..., 1622. . FIRST EDITION. Small 4to, 196 x 137 mms., pp. [xxiv], 191, 196 - 693 [694 errata], leaves N8-O2 are cancelled by one leaf signed O on recto and O2 on verso, recently rebound in full panelled calf, red morocco end-papers; title-page slightly defective (but with no loss of text), mounted, as is the following leaf and the last leaf of text, with some loss of two or three letters of text on page 693, first several foremargins a bit fragile, slight browning throughout, but a reasonable copy that appears to have been much read. The inscription "Pittsburgh Oct. 1886 G. S. [?J. S bogart]" appears on the top margin of the dedication page, perhaps a holdover from an early Quaker immigrant. William Gouge (1578 - 1653) expanded this from a sermon on Ephesians in his "An Exposition of the Whole Fifth Chapter of S. Johns Gospell." Brett Usher in his ODNB entry for Gouge writes, "Above all Gouge is remembered for Of Domesticall Duties, a penetrating analysis of the godly household. Too frequently cited as an old-fashioned patriarch who advocated the indiscriminate physical punishment of children, Gouge has latterly (although still insufficiently) been recognized as one of the subtlest of early modern writers to articulate the concept of 'companionable' marriage—his own was regarded as exemplary—and of considerate, rather than merely prescriptive, parenthood. His psychological insights into the nature of childhood and adolescence can be breathtaking in their modernity. He even touches on the question of child abuse, a subject effectively taboo until the 1970s." Although Gouge regarded the family unit as a "little commonwealth," he had ideas that were in advance of his own time, e. g., he argued that a husband should remonstrate only verbally with his wife, since to strike or beat her would be like beating himself.

      [London]. Feb. 8, 1622.. 6pp. 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.

        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: Felix Kyngston, 1622.. [8],46pp. 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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 622/172. HARRISSE 35. JCB (3)II:175.

        Description des Indes Occidentales

      Amsterdam,: Emanuel Colin,, 1622.. Folio, engraved and printed title-pages, with 5 engravings and 17 folding engraved maps; small defects in outer portions of first few leaves neatly made good; an excellent copy in handsome dark calf by Aquarius. Herrera's highly important account of the New World, including the first true publication of the Journal of the Le Maire-Schouten expedition around the world. Their voyage in search of Terra Australis is described in full in the second part of the book (Iournal, & Miroir de la Navigation Australe), which publishes for the first time the "correct" narrative of the expedition.The momentous Pacific crossing was 'the last expedition of the seventeenth century to search for Terra Australis from the east...' (Schilder) and 'the one genuine voyage of Oceanic exploration between Quiros and Tasman...' (Spate). Sailing through Le Maire Strait, and rounding Patagonia via Cape Horn, this voyage had an enormous effect on future navigation, helping to put an end to the idea of the imaginary Southland. This is one of three versions published in the year of first publication: Latin, French, and Dutch language versions all appeared at the same time, using the same engravings; all editions are now rare. (The Dutch version was republished in the Australian Maritime Series - see following item.)An earlier narrative of the expedition had been published by Admiral Spilbergen, who had taken Le Maire and Schouten back to Europe after their capture by the VOC in the Dutch East Indies. Spilbergen had used much of Le Maire's journal to create his narrative, but not until this publication by Herrera did the original account of the crucial voyage appear in full.The spice trade was not the only motivating factor for the Le Maire voyage. Influenced by the voyage of Pedro Fernandez de QuirÛs, the Portuguese navigator who believed he had touched upon Terra Australis (see catalogue numbers 103-6), Isaac Le Maire, Jacob's father, set up The Australian Company ("Australische of Zuid Compagnie"). The expedition he finally mounted had a dual goal: to chart a new course to the Pacific and to find the great southland.Le Maire appointed his son Jacob to command the expedition. He was joined by experienced mariner Willem Schouten, who skippered the Eendracht, and Jacob's younger brother Jan, who skippered the Hoorn. The ships sailed on 14 June, 1615 on a mission whose purpose was kept secret from the crew for four months. The expedition successfully plotted a new sailing route to the Pacific under Cape Horn (which they named in honour of their home-base), rather than going through the VOC-controlled Strait of Magellan. As a result they established for evermore a new sailing route from the "old world" to the Pacific.The last of the seventeenth-century expeditions to search for the unknown continent from the east, it was responsible for extensive discoveries in the Pacific, shown in excellent detail on the various maps published here. There are also four fine engraved views, three of which show the Eendracht at anchor in the Solomon and Cocos Islands.For centuries after, the Pacific discoveries they made would be admired by great explorers including Tasman, Bougainville and James Cook. In fact, their voyage was a prelude to the 1642-3 voyage of Abel Tasman who, on the final leg of his voyage, sailed through seas first crossed and charted by Le Maire.The first and last parts of the book concentrate on knowledge of the New World, with a magnificent series of double-page maps, thirteen of which show north, central and south America, while the other four are particularly important mappings of the Pacific adding considerable new information to geographical knowledge. One in particular, larger than the others, shows Le Maire's route through the ocean with detailed mapping of the Pacific island groups visited and of New Guinea. Le Maire's voyage made significant Pacific discoveries, and established at last that New Guinea was not part of a great continent extending indefinitely to the east. This entirely altered European knowledge of the archipelago, which had been unchanged since 1545.Alden, 'European Americana', 622/68; Borba de Moraes, I, 400; Kroepelien, 561 (Latin edition); Medina, 'Hispanic America', 455; no copy recorded in either the Hill, Church or Herschel Jones catalogues; Palau, 114296; Schilder, 'Australia Unveiled', 'pp. 32-36; see Sharp, 'Discovery of the Pacific Islands', pp 73-8, and Schilder, Australia Unveiled, pp 32-36 and passim for a full account of the voyage and its importance, pp. 73-8; Tiele, pp. 56-7, 314-316; Wagner, 'Spanish Southwest', 12.

        The History of the Raigne of Henry the Seventh

      London: W. Stansby for Mathew Lownes and William Barret, 1622 Book. Fair+. Full-Leather. 2nd Edition. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. A handsome copy, whose major flaw is a detatched front board. It was received with three clipped catalogue listings which may or may not bear on this copy. Also the following notes were penciled on the blank second to last endsheet, "Bought at Anderson Galleries Dec. 12 1917, Grove sale #33, cost KE. This copy is the genuine 1st issue of the 1st edition (this is crossed out and &#39;2nd&#39; appended) See headline on page 59. A copy sold at Anderson&#39;s feb. 13th 1918 for QXE. *and spelling of enemies page 13." These points seem to have been superceded by the errata appearance and corrections. I will summarize all the data I have at hand. Spelling of &#39;Raigne&#39; is used throughout. Page 59 has &#39;The Raigne&#39; at it&#39;s page top where it should not appear. The spelling of &#39;enimies&#39; is present in the 30th line of page 13. Regarding the errata at page 248, this has been crossed out by hand and the issues corrected either by hand or type re-setting in each case. Collation is quarto, book measures 11 1/2 x 7 3/4, 248 pages. Regarding the books condition, the spine is unribbed but gilt illustrated in seven segments with the age darkened label in the 2nd from the top, there is chip out top and bottom and at exterior hinge extremities. Front hinge is neatly cracked, inside and out, back hinge starting but much less weak. The boards have gilt edgework (inside and out) and tooling. Significant tip rounding and abrasion thru the leather. There is an old booksellers label upper corner last PD. Marbled first/last endsheet and pastedowns, 1st pd has ex-librirs plate from 1808 that appears to overlay an older plate. Frontis is in place, the title page has odd inscription at bottom margin thus, "illus.- De Bourne Bethlehem 4 Juli 1625, J.E.-illus." the illustrations look like -E forward and backward- twixt which appears a Coptic Cross? The text seems grand to me, aged with a good bit of speckled foxing, some corrected dog ear. The pastedowns and back endsheets may have been redone they seem a bit newer than the balance, the front blank end sheets have the most foxing, very foxed. Foto will accompany the listing shortly..

        Selectarum Medicinae Disputationum. Tomus I [único publicado] in quo praeter ea quae de Febrium theoria, Coctione et Putredine atque aliis ex professo disputantur.

      Osuna: Ursaonae, apud Ioannem Serrano de Vargas y Ureña, Universitatis Typographum, 1622. - Folio; 3 hojas, 554 pp., 18 hojas. Diversos errores en la numeración de la paginación. Encuadernación en pergamino, de la época. Rarísimo tratado, y excelente muestra de la muy escasa producción tipográfica de la Universidad de Osuna &#150;prestigiosa, pese al maldiciente dicho cervantino de «en Osuna y Orihuela todo cuela»&#150; que versa en esencia sobre las fiebres y sus causas, ampliando las teorías de Galeno y Avicena y con extensos textos polémicos contra las opiniones sustentadas por gran parte de las autoridades médicas de su tiempo: Gómez Pereira, Vallés, Mercado y Cristobal Nuñez, principalmente. Matamoros, nacido en 1591, recibió el grado en Salamanca y ejerció como Catedrático de Prima de Medicina en la Universidad de Osuna, por cuyas aulas pasaron Alonso Gudiel, Gaspar López Nuceda, Diego de Zúñiga, Francisco Solano de Luque, Rodrigo Caro, Luis Vélez de Guevara y Blanco White, entre otros. -

First edition of this famous book on birds, their habits, methods of capture and care, noteworthy for the 66 superb full-page engravings by Tempesta, Villamena and Maggi, which «are much superior to the figures of birds by English and French artists of the same period...» (Harting 278).

      Lugduni Batavorum, Ex Officina Elzeviriana, 1622.In-8° (182x145mm), pp. 80, legatura coeva p. pergamena con titolo calligrafato in antico alla cuffia superiore. Impresa tipografica incisa su legno al frontespizio; nota di possesso in data 1666 al margine inferiore del frontespizio stesso. Dedicatoria del traduttore a Gerhard Maldechem.

Prima edizione (l'opera, redatta all'origine in latino, apparve per la prima volta in questa traduzione latina, dovuta ad Augerius Frikelburgius), impressa con tipi elzeviriani, di quest'opera sarpiana sul diritto d'asilo esaminato alla luce della giurisprudenza civile così come di quella canonica. L'autore è indicato come Pietro Sarpi in quanto tale, prima della sua ordinazione sacerdotale, era il nome di battesimo del grande storico. "Fra Paolo considera come un abuso questa pretesa immunità delle chiese, ma stante i pregiudizi della età ne consiglia la tolleranza, cui per altro ristringe con tante clausole che riduce il diritto di asilo ai soli debitori insolvibili, purchè non siano fraudolenti, e a' rei di delitto accidentale", riassumeva il Bianchi-Giovini nella sua Biografia da Frà Paolo Sarpi. Willems, n. 205. Copinger, 4095. Melzi, III, p. 28.

        A Catalogue and Succession of the Kings, Princes, Dukes, Marquesses, Earles, and Viscounts of this Realme of England, since the Norman Conquest, to the present yeere 1622. Together with their Armes, Wives and Children; collected by Raphe Brooke Esquire, Yorke Herauld, and by him inlarged, with amendment of divers faults, committed by the Printer in the time of the Authors sicknesse

      NP NP , 1622. Revised second edition. Hardcover. vg. 4to. [8],392,[2],pp. Bound in modern three-quarter calf over marbled boards protected by mylar. Gold-lettering and stamped floral decorations on spine. Raised bands. Modern endpapers. Title-page with decorative woodcut border. Title page with author's name spelled incorrectly "Raphe." Second edition of Brooke's famous 'Catalogue of English Nobility,' profusely illustrated throughout with woodcuts of coats of arms. Ralph Brooke (1553-1625) was an English Officer of Arms in the reigns of Elizabeth I and James I. The first edition was published in 1619 and was full of errors, which intensified the already excising feud between Brooke and William Camden, a fellow Officer of Arms. In the foreword of this edition, Brooke fails to take responsibility and blames his printer William Jaggard for the mistakes in the first edition. Augustine Vincent, a friend of Camden, set the record straight in his 1622 work 'A Discoverie of Errors' in which he points out that Brooke, not Jaggard, was responsible for the errors. Jaggard happily served as the printer on Vincent's work. Decorative initials and headpieces. One page-added manuscript (tipped-in) with code of arms. Some entries annotated in text, few sentences with underlining. Age wear on boards. Paper-split along gutter on free front endpaper, firmly holding. Water staining on few pages. Rippling to leaves. Some errors in paging, as published. Overall very good condition. Fascinating 17th-century work on the genealogy of English nobility. Rare, complete second edition.

O? se voit la grandeur et la puissance incomparable des Romains: Ensemble, l'esclaircissement de l'Itineraire d'Antonin et de la Carte de Peutinger.

      Paris, Chez C. Morel, 1622. In 4to (cm 17,2 x 24,5), front. in rosso / nero, pp. (40), 856, (28), testatine, capilettera xilografati e ornati, alcuni schemi e tabelle n. t., leg. recente in piena pelle, titolo in oro sul suo tassello originale. Nicolas Bergier fu storico e avvocato (Reims, 1 marzo 1567 - Reims, 18 agosto 1623). Al Bergier, appassionato della storia delle vie di comunicazione romane, il Re Luigi XIII commission? un lavoro di ricerca sul soggetto. Dopo cinque anni, venne pubblicato questo importante documento sulla geografia dell'Impero Romano e sulle sue vie di comunicazione (comprese le tecniche e i dettagli di costruzione). Per quanto non in questa, ma solo nelle due edizioni successive, quelle stampate nel Settecento (la prima nel 1728, la seconda nel 1736), si riporta la celebre "Tabula Peutingeriana" (la "Peutingeriana", come copia medievale di una carta di et? romana imperiale, fu pubblicata ad Anversa nel 1598, ripresa poi negli atlanti dell'Ortelio e del Jansson, nei primi anni del '600, e successivamente fu presente in edizioni posteriori alla prima di questa opera), resta la nostra la pi? importante delle edizioni, prima e rara, peraltro l'unica a essere edita con l'Autore ancora in vita. Edizione originale di opera dotta e importante. Esemplare in buono stato di conservazione.
