(MEDICINE - OBSTETRICS). GUILLEMEAU, JACQUES
Paris: Abraham Pacard, 1621 [1620]; Paris: Melchior Mondière, 1623. Second Edition of the first work; FIRST EDITION of the second work. In an unusually distinguished binding for a work on medicine, this is an important early treatise on obstetrics, with an added section by the author's son on the treatment of impotence and infertility. First published in 1609 and based on Guillemeau's experience in delivering newborns, it reestablished procedures for extracting babies in breeched position without damage to the infant, and firmly advocated maternal breastfeeding in an age when many affluent women hired wet nurses. Jacques Guillemeau (1550-1613) was a pupil and son-in-law of the famous surgeon Ambroise Paré and succeeded him as surgeon to Charles IX, Henry III, and Henry IV. In addition to his books on childbirth and the diseases of children, newborns, and their mothers, he was also well known for his works on dentistry and diseases of the eye. His son Charles (1588-1656) followed in his father's footsteps. In "Obstetric Treatises" (2007), Worth-Stylianou observes, "with the work of Guillemeau, father and son, we are in the presence of one of the most important contributions of surgery to obstetric medicine before the Mauriceau era." The first part of "De la Grossesse" deals with problems of pregnancy (for example, the woman's craving for certain foods); the second part discusses the ways to help a woman deliver, including the first description of a method of assisted breech delivery; and the third section covers the care and feeding of the mother and her newbo … [Click Below for Full Description]

An engraving removed from 'Thesaurus Philopoliticus', first published in Frankfurt (1623). You can see the evidence of the cut along the lefthand side. Minor foxing. Small but insignificant damage to the bottom righthand corner. Iusta Simplicitate (An engraving only. This is not an auction for the book from which it was extracted.) An engraving from Thesaurus Philopoliticus (by Daniel Meisner, first published in Frankfurt in 1623). The book contains hundreds of urban scenes, mostly European. The background city views are not taken to be important to the content of the emblems. Each emblem presented an allegoric scene. This engraving praised integrity and simplicity. It depicts a bearded man in a fur coat with scales. The heavy side holds the pigeon. In the background is Boulenham castle, which is located in Gelderland, The Netherlands. A riddle in German and Latin features at the bottom of this engraving. The elegant figure is most probably a representation of a Jewish moneylender whose values are supposed to be opposite to those the emblem praises. Measures (approx) 20 x 15 cm. In very good condition for its age. Please study photos carefully for condition. I find no copies listed online for sale. Auction starting prices for this engraving are much higher than the starting price available here.

Konrad, von Scheyern Philosophus
London: Typis Gregorij Hænlin, 1623. Written by Konrad, von Scheyern Philosophus.; Georg Christian Joannis; Stephan Reitperger; Abbot of Scheyern Stephanus; Gregor Hanlin Scheyern Abbey, formerly also Scheyern Priory (Kloster Scheyern) is a house of the Benedictine Order in Scheyern in Bavaria. The monastery at Scheyern was established in 1119 as the final site of the community originally founded in around 1077 at Bayrischzell by Countess Haziga of Aragon, wife of Otto II, Count of Scheyern, the ancestors of the Wittelsbachs. The first monks were from Hirsau Abbey, of which the new monastery was a priory, founded as it was against the background of the Investiture Controversy and the Hirsau Reforms. The original site proved unsuitable for a number of reasons, including difficulties with water supply, and the monastery moved in 1087 to Fischbachau. When that site too proved unsuitable, they moved to Petersberg, in 1104. In Latin. The dedication is to the Holy Cross and the Assumption of the Virgin Mary: the abbey has had in its possession since 1180 a relic of the Holy Cross from Jerusalem, and is still today a place of pilgrimage for this reason. By the 13th century the abbey had already gained a reputation for its school of illumination and its scriptorium. Including decorative title page. With monastic bookplate to front pastedown. CONDITION In a vellum binding. Externally worn, with dampstaining to the boards and slight loss in places. Backstrip lifting. Internally, firmly bound.

Pierre de Berulle
London: Antoine Estiene, 1623. He is generally regarded as being the initiator of the so-called French School of Spirituality, and he founded the Congregation of the Oratory in France. He was deeply involved in Church renewal in France in the seventeenth century, and was made a Cardinal in 1627. Bérulle left several written works, the remarkable qualities of which led Pope Urban VIII to call him the Apostolus Verbi incarnati. An inverted copperplate ink inscription has been left to the blank verso of the last page (Volume II). In French. CONDITION Rebound in blind stamped full calf. Externally, a trifle rubbed with some slight loss and tidemarks. Internally, firmly bound, with some age toning and occasional marks, as expected for books of this age. The first Volume contains some tidemarks and evidence of some past worming. The second Volume is bright and clean with only the odd mark.

London: Typis Gregorij Hænlin, 1623. Written by Konrad, von Scheyern Philosophus.; Georg Christian Joannis; Stephan Reitperger; Abbot of Scheyern Stephanus; Gregor Hanlin Scheyern Abbey, formerly also Scheyern Priory (Kloster Scheyern) is a house of the Benedictine Order in Scheyern in Bavaria. The monastery at Scheyern was established in 1119 as the final site of the community originally founded in around 1077 at Bayrischzell by Countess Haziga of Aragon, wife of Otto II, Count of Scheyern, the ancestors of the Wittelsbachs. The first monks were from Hirsau Abbey, of which the new monastery was a priory, founded as it was against the background of the Investiture Controversy and the Hirsau Reforms. The original site proved unsuitable for a number of reasons, including difficulties with water supply, and the monastery moved in 1087 to Fischbachau. When that site too proved unsuitable, they moved to Petersberg, in 1104. In Latin. The dedication is to the Holy Cross and the Assumption of the Virgin Mary: the abbey has had in its possession since 1180 a relic of the Holy Cross from Jerusalem, and is still today a place of pilgrimage for this reason. By the 13th century the abbey had already gained a reputation for its school of illumination and its scriptorium. Including decorative title page. With monastic bookplate to front pastedown.

He is the best known English mapmaker of the Stuart period. In creating this exceptional work--"incomparably more complete than all the histories of his predecessors put together" (Lowndes, 2471)--Speed was responding to "the need of the country to fix its place in the world, to contemplate, simultaneously, its past and present" (Schama II:10). Speed's Historie vividly tells of such monarchs as William the Conqueror, Edward the Confessor, Henry II ("the founder of the English common law"), Richard the Lionhearted, Edward I ("the greatest of the Plantagenets"), Henry V (who against great odds, "conquered an empire") and the monarch whose rule "came to embody a truly national consciousness," Elizabeth I (Kings & Queens, 52, 79, 120, 198).

Pierre de Berulle
London: Antoine Estiene, 1623. He is generally regarded as being the initiator of the so-called French School of Spirituality, and he founded the Congregation of the Oratory in France. He was deeply involved in Church renewal in France in the seventeenth century, and was made a Cardinal in 1627. Bérulle left several written works, the remarkable qualities of which led Pope Urban VIII to call him the Apostolus Verbi incarnati. An inverted copperplate ink inscription has been left to the blank verso of the last page (Volume II). In French. CONDITION Rebound in blind stamped full calf. Externally, a trifle rubbed with some slight loss and tidemarks. Internally, firmly bound, with some age toning and occasional marks, as expected for books of this age. The first Volume contains some tidemarks and evidence of some past worming. The second Volume is bright and clean with only the odd mark. In both Volumes, small amateur repairs have been left, from page 81-120, 1a-16a, 511/2 and the title page. Overall Condition: Very Good.

John Barclay, Paris Editio
1623 Latin Novel, Argenis by John Barclay, Paris Editio Click to Enlarge Description: Ioannis Barclaii Argenis by John Barclay Editio III Nicolaj Buon, Parisiis, 1623. Third printing. In Latin. Paper over boards with leather spine (highly abraded), leather corners, spine label with gilt titles, red page edges, engraved illustrated title page, frontispiece engraved portrait of Louis XIII, King of France and Navarre, 1087 pages followed by index. The binding, although very old (17th or 18 century) is probably not the original since the top margins of the text are severely trimmed with occasional slight truncation of the running page headers but no loss of text. Provenance: The book plate on the interior of the front board is that of Luther Brewer, the noted early 20th Century Cedar Rapids, Iowa publisher, author and bibliophile. First published in Paris in 1621, this was Barclay's masterpiece, one of the most popular narratives of the period. The social and political ideas in "Argenis" include reflections on the dangers of political intrigue. Barclay designed "Argenis" to admonish princes and politicians and to denounce political factions and conspiracies. Fictional characters in Argenis represent Elizabeth, Philip II, Henry IV, etc. Barclay completed "Argenis" just a fortnight before his death, which was said to have been hastened by poison. "At a fairly early stage humanism became noticeable in some Scottish Latin writers who were or had been students in Paris. Barclay was the most distinguished of these." (Josef Ijsewijn, Companion to Neo-Latin Studies Part 1). Ijsewijn st … [Click Below for Full Description]

Konrad, von Scheyern Philosophus

Written by Konrad, von Scheyern Philosophus.; Georg Christian Joannis; Stephan Reitperger; Abbot of Scheyern Stephanus; Gregor Hanlin Scheyern Abbey, formerly also Scheyern Priory (Kloster Scheyern) is a house of the Benedictine Order in Scheyern in Bavaria. The monastery at Scheyern was established in 1119 as the final site of the community originally founded in around 1077 at Bayrischzell by Countess Haziga of Aragon, wife of Otto II, Count of Scheyern, the ancestors of the Wittelsbachs. The first monks were from Hirsau Abbey, of which the new monastery was a priory, founded as it was against the background of the Investiture Controversy and the Hirsau Reforms. The original site proved unsuitable for a number of reasons, including difficulties with water supply, and the monastery moved in 1087 to Fischbachau. When that site too proved unsuitable, they moved to Petersberg, in 1104. In Latin. The dedication is to the Holy Cross and the Assumption of the Virgin Mary: the abbey has had in its possession since 1180 a relic of the Holy Cross from Jerusalem, and is still today a place of pilgrimage for this reason.

Buonarroti, Michelangelo
Florence: Appresso i Giunti, 1623. Rare first edition of Michelangelo's poems - gathered from manuscripts at Rome and Florence, and published posthumously by his grandnephew. 4to. Printer's device on title page - woodcut head and tail pieces, initials, and ornaments throughout. Contemporary flexible sewn-paper binding with remnants of university markings(?) on lower spine and front board, discreet bookseller stamp inside rear cover. Generally fresh pages with some sporadic browning, last few leaves with small moisture marks on margins, and small restoration on the upper margin of the last leaf - still an attractive, Very Good copy in a rare binding. *****Only a handful of copies have appeared on the market in the last 40 years - particularly hard to find in contemporary binding such as this. A landmark of gay literature.***** The book was published to provide a definitive version of Michelangelo's poetic writings, uniting them in a single volume. Michelangelo's great passion for poetry always remained a private matter, occasionally shared only in the circle of his most intimate friends.(Bado) *** 'When the queer art historian John Addington Symonds was granted access to the Buonarroti family archives in Florence in 1863, he discovered a note written in the margin of the manuscript poems by Michelangelo's grandnephew(called Michelangelo the Younger) saying that the poems must not be published in their original form because they expressed "amor . . . virile," literally "masculine love."
