Bernard de la Valette vécut sous Henri II, François II, Charles IX et Henri III, et, dans les temps orageux qui signalèrent le règne de ces deux derniers monarques, il leur resta constamment attaché. Il avait embrassé la carrière des armes, se distingua dans la guerre de Piémont, et obtint en 1583 le gouvernement du Dauphiné. Au passage de l'Isère, aidé par le général Ornano, il défit 400 arquebusiers français et 300 Suisses. Il fut nommé, en 1576, gouverneur de Provence, et soumit, l'année suivante, Valensoles et Digne, deux villes qui s'étaient soustraites à l'obéissance du roi. Blessé au siège de Valensoles, qu'il prit d'assaut, il montra néanmoins sa modération en défendant le pillage, après avoir pardonné à tous les habitants. Il alla ensuite à la rencontre du duc de Savoie qui était entré en Provence, lui fit lever le siège de Barcelonnette, le battit près d'Epernon en 1591, puis à Vinon, et l'obligea à repasser les Alpes dans une entière déroute. Ces succès furent interrompus par une mort précoce : il fut tué d'un coup d'arquebuse au siège de Roquebrune, près de Fréjus, le 11 février 1592 ; il n'avait que 39 ans, et ne laissa pas de postérité. De Thou dit, en parlant de ce général : In periculis imperterritus, in adversis constans, in prosperis moderatus [.]. Sa Vie a été écrite par Mauroy, son secrétaire ; on la trouve dans les Additions au mémoire historique et critique de la vie de Roger de Bellegarde, Paris, 1767, in-12." (Feller, Biographie universelle VIII-p. 253).L'auteur, témoin oculaire, était le secrétaire de Bernard Nogaret de La Valette. Le marquis de Cambis-Velleron, dans ses Additions au mémoire sur Bellegarde de Secousse, considère que cette vie de La Valette "est un monument précieux parce qu'il donne un grand et exact détail de tous les événements du marquisat de Saluces, du Dauphiné, et de la Provence." Hauser précise que "Secousse le trouve bien informé, particulièrement sur les affaires de Saluces."

Marcel de Boulene, small 8vo, approximately 165 x 100 mm, 6½ x 4 inches, engraved title page with vignettes of chemical apparatus and 4 small portraits of Hermes Trismegistus, Paracelsus, Raimon Lull and Geber, with a cabalistic circle at the top, 2 woodcut illustrations in the text, woodcut headpieces and initials, pages: (8), 223 - Preface Admonitoire, (2), 210 - Royalle Chymie, (57) - Table, (4), 119 - Traicte des Signatures, (31) - Table, lacks final blank (Kkk4), bound in antique full calf, raised bands, gilt decoration in compartments and gilt lettering to spine, edges stained red. Binding worn, spine stuck down with a vertical crease due to opening, shelf wear to edges with cardboard showing at corners and on top and bottom edges, slight loss of leather at head of spine, amateur repair to tail of spine, upper hinge starting to crack at head and tail, lower hinge starting at head, small crack also in top compartment, engraved title page trimmed losing all margins except the lower, tiny grazed patch to edge of 1 portrait due to adhesion, margins slightly trimmed, sometimes affecting running title with loss, just shaving a few side notes mostly without loss of legibility, light ink stroke in 3 margins, occasional small light stains and light soiling mostly in the Chymie section, all easily legible, tiny hole in 1 text page with loss of 1 letter, tiny dark spot to a few lower margins, a few pages lightly age-browned, small worm track in lower margin of Preface from page 111-123, 2 small tracks in fore-edge margin of Chymie from page 149-177, all neatly repaired, affecting 1 side note, still easily legible, a little ink scribble in the margin of 1 page of the final Table, final page dusty otherwise a good copy. Oswald Croll [c. 1560 - 1609] was a professor of medicine and alchemy at the University of Marburg in Hesse, Germany. A strong proponent of alchemy and of using chemistry in medicine, he attempted to influence thinkers of his day towards viewing chemistry and alchemy as two separate fields. He published one volume in 1609, the year of his death, containing two books "Basilica Chymica" (La Royalle Chymie) and "De signatura rerum" (Traicte des Signatures) plus a long preface in which he expounds the ideas of Paracelsus to whom he was devoted. The Royalle Chymie is a comprehensive summary of his researches, methods of preparation, and studies into chemical medicine or iatrochemistry. He pushes for the understanding and recognition of chemical compounds and the medicinal value of herbs and other processes first advanced by Paracelsus. It also discussed matters such as compound remedies, chemical organisation and acted as an introduction to chemistry in later years. The Traicte des Signatures covered the relation of alchemy and chemistry to other fields of science, especially botany, suggesting the use of the doctrine of signatures to determine the medical property of plants.

         Sin título [New Englande, New Scotlande, Newfoundlande]

      1624 - 25 x 34 cm. Excepcional mapa de Nueva Inglaterra, Nueva Escocia y Terranova, elaborado por Sir William Alexander, incluído en la obra An Encouragement to Colonies, publicada en Londres en 1624, con el propósito de promover los asentamientos en esta región recientemente colonizada del noroeste de Norteamérica. A pesar de ser comúnmente subestimado, este importante mapa se destaca por haber sido el primero en mostrar varios aspectos: la primera aparición del término “Cape Cod” en un mapa; la cartografía más temprana de la Isla del Príncipe Eduardo; la primera representación de la colonia francesa de Kebec en un mapa inglés; y el primer uso del término “New Scotlande” en un mapa. En noviembre de 1620, el rey Jaime I creó el Concejo de Nueva Inglaterra y otorgó el territorio que aparece en el mapa a los 40 oficiales que conformaban la compañía. Más adelante, en 1621, concedió a su funcionario favorito, el escocés William Alexander, el privilegio sobre las tierras de Nueva Escocia (Nova Scotia) y parte de la península de Gaspe. Sin embargo, dicha cesión entró en conflicto con las posesiones que ya había entregado al Concejo. Como resultado de este inconveniente, el rey simplemente rescindió parte de la concesión hecha al Concejo reorganizándola y reduciéndola a 20 beneficiarios en 1623. En la misma época, Alexander también obtuvo el privilegio sobre la mayor parte del suroeste de Terranova de los propietarios originales, imaginando que así construiría un Imperio del Nuevo Mundo. Una vez definidos los establecimientos ingleses a través de las concesiones reales, el más interesado en estimular la migración a sus vastos dominios fue William Alexander. Tarea que promovió con la publicación del panfleto An Encouragement to Colonies. El mapa muestra el noreste de Norteamérica desde Nantucket y Martha’s Vineyard hasta Terranova y Labrador, y tierra adentro hacia el norte hasta los ríos St. Lawrence y Saguenay en el territorio de Nueva Francia. Expone la mejor descripción de la costa hecha hasta ese momento, pues puede uno identificar claramente Cape Cod, el puerto de Boston, Cape Anne, Casco Bay, Kennebec y Penobscot; así como unas bien definidas Nueva Escocia y Terranova. Adicionalmente introduce nueva toponimia para la región, incluyendo “New Scotlande” (Nova Scotia), las provincias de Caledonia y Alexandria, y el renombramiento de los ríos Clyde, Twede y Sulway. En “Newfoundlande” (Terranova) encontramos las posesiones de Sir George Calvert. Calvert invirtió una enorme fortuna en su colonia de Avalon, pero después de pasar un invierno ahí abandonó el esfuerzo, obtuvo una concesión de tierras más al sur y fundó la provincia de Maryland. En cuanto a “New Scotlande” (Nueva Escocia), que abarca los actuales Nueva Escocia y New Brunswick, Alexander la dividió en las provincias de Alexandria y Caledonia (se muestran en el mapa), que a su vez fueron subdivididas en docenas de baronías para ofrecerse a la venta. “New Englande” se muestra distribuida entre 20 lores y otros personajes importantes. Estos hombres eran los miembros del Concejo de Nueva Inglaterra entre los que la región fue repartida en 1623. Con la excepción de Ferdinando Gorges, quien estableció la primera colonia permanente en Maine, todas las tentativas coloniales de los ingleses que se muestran en este mapa fracasaron. A pesar de todas estas vicisitudes, el mapa continuó siendo relevante por varias razones; cartográficamente es más avanzado y preciso que mapas anteriores de la misma región, y es el primer mapa en nombrar los 20 concesionarios de tierras del Concejo de Nueva Inglaterra. En blanco y negro, reverso en blanco, y marca de la plancha visible. Muy buen estado de conservación. Mapa icónico de Nueva Inglaterra, Nueva Escocia y Terranova, y pieza esencial en cualquier colección seria de mapas tempranos de Norteamérica y Canadá.

         Purchas his Pilgrimes in five bookes [with:] Purchas his Pilgrimage.

      London: Stansby for Fetherstone, 1624-26 - FIRST EDITION of this celebrated collection of travels accounts in English, “one of the fullest and most important collections of early voyages and travels in the English language” (Church). This is the rare first issue of volume I with the engraved title page dated 1624 (usually it is dated 1625) and with the offending passages concerning the Dutch (easily recognized by the presence of the p. 704 headline ‘Hollanders lying devices, to disgrace the English,” which was then changed to ‘Amboyna taken by the Dutch. Ingratitude. Boasting’). This extraordinary undertaking, which extended Hakluyt’s Principal Navigations (London, 1598), contains accounts of more than 1200 voyages of discovery and exploration. Many of these accounts were previously unpublished in any language; scores of others are here published for the first time in English. The set includes many of the accounts of the courageous men who had recently explored and begun to settle the New World. Among the hundreds of voyages related are those of Columbus, Da Gama, Cortés, Pizarro, Magellan, and Cabot. English explorations including those of Drake and Hawkins, the Jesuit explorations of China and Japan, the Portuguese voyages to the East Indies, and the explorations of the East India Company. The exploration of the New World is one of the focal points of this set, the greatest English work on exploration of the seventeenth century. Part of volume three and all of volume four are devoted to voyages to America. A CLASSIC OF EXPLORATION LITERATURE. The Age of Exploration contains some of the most exciting and dramatic tales of human achievement and adventure. The compilations of Ramusio and Hakluyt in the sixteenth century, and Purchas in the seventeenth century, form the foundation of a collection of great exploration books. LANDMARK MAPS. “The six original maps which Purchas uses are all of prime importance” (Wallis). The Pilgrimes contains several important maps of America including: John Smith’s Map of Virginia, which Smith made available to his friend Samuel Purchas. This is “one of the most important printed maps of America ever produced and certainly one of the greatest influence. [It] inspired much interest in the fledgling Virginia colony, influencing considerably its eventual success” (Burden). This is the first printed map of the whole extent of the Chesapeake Bay based upon personal experience. The present example is in state 8, one of three states associated with the Purchas publication. Smith’s map is “the most important map to appear in print during the period of early settlement and the one map of Virginia that has had the greatest influence upon map making for the longest period of time” (Coolie Verner, “The First Maps of Virginia, 1590-1673”). The Henry Briggs map of North America, the first in English to show California as an island. One of the most important English maps of North America, this is the first map to name Hudson’s Bay and the Hudson River. William Alexander’s map of the Northeast, showing the coast from Massachusetts to Newfoundland. This is the first map to record many place names and is a “map of great importance” (Burden). Roe’s map of Northern India, the earliest English map of Mogul territories, was the standard map of the reion for nearly a century. Saris’s map of China correctly shows Korea as a peninsula and may be the earliest map of China from Chinese sources to have be published in Europe, according to Skelton.

         Tractacus quatuor. Quorum I. De formato foetu. II. De locutione & ejus instrumentis. III. De loquela brutorum. IV. De venarum ostiolis, loquitur.

      Francfort, Zetter, 1624. ____ Première édition collective. Elle est illustrée par un titre gravé et 43 belles planches d'anatomie gravées sur cuivre. Girolamo Fabrizi d'Acquapendente (1533-1619) a été l'éleve de Gabriel Fallope et l'a remplacé à la chaire de chirurgie de l'université de Padoue. Il est considéré comme le premier grand maître de l'anatomie physiologique et de l'embryologie comparées. On lui doit la première description des valvules veineuses. Il a été le professeur de William Harvey qui a utilisé par la suite les travaux de Fabrici pour sa découverte de la circulatio sanguine. On retrouve dans le "De motu cordis" une panche similaire à celle que l'on trouve dans l'oeuvre de Fabrici. Provenances : - Ex-libris manuscrit "ex museo Francisci Delort 1741". - Ex-libris manuscrit "Dr. Grateloup, Aquensis, Burdigala, 11 octobre 1838". Jean-Pierre Grateloup, né en 1782 à Dax et mort en 1861 à Bordeaux était médecin et malacologiste. Papier un peu bruni, dos largement restauré. *-------* First collected edition. Girolamo Fabrici ab Aquapendente (1537-1619), one of the great Paduan anatomists, pupil of Fallopius and teacher of Harvey, made important observations on the valves of the veins. "He failed to recognize their true function, considering this to be merely a delaying of the blood flow. However, his work influenced Harvey, who reproduced the extended arm from the great double plate in his 'De Motu Cordis' twenty-five years later. The plates are magnificent, nothing on their scale having been seen since the days of Vesalius." (Lilly Library). In-folio. Collation : XII, 158 pp., (8), 43 planches h.-t. Veau brun, dos à nerfs. (Reliure de l'époque.).

Die Folge zeigt nicht nur ein lebendiges und getreues Bild der Mode der vornehmen Damen und Herren zur Zeit Callots, sondern ist darüber hinaus von besonderem Interesse, weil sich darunter vermutlich Porträts aus Callots Familie befinden: seine Frau (L. 549), ein Selbstporträt (L.550), Callots älterer Bruder (L. 554) und seine jüngere Schwester (L. 556). - Meist von guter Erhaltung.

         Epigrammaton libri, animadversi, emendati, et commentariolus luculenter explicati.

      - Sedan, Jean Jannon, 1624. 8vo. 17th-century calf with raised bads, spine lettered and ornamented in gilt, coverls with gilt-ruled double-fillets; pp. [viii], 342, woodcut printer's device to title, a few woodcut head-pices and initials; binding worn, but stable, a few faint marginal waterstains, otherwise a very good and still crisp copy; early 18th-century French ownership inscriptions and one armorial seal to title. First Jannon edition. Printed in the independent (up to 1651) Protestant Principality of Sedan in the Ardennes, close to the modern French border with Belgium, this collection of verses by the greatest Latin epigrammatist is a sensational achievement of French typography and Protestant book production. In 1610 the Parisian master printer Robert III Estienne recommended the printer, librarian and typecutter Jean Jannon to the Prince of Sedan as a talented and Protestant man of the book. Sedan developed into an academy of Protestant erudition with an impressive collection of printed books, manustcripts and works of art. Jannon began to print academic theses, classics and religious works, whilst designing and cutting types in Latin, Greek, Hebrew and Syriac. The type used here, la petite sedanoise, as it became known later, after it had been pirated by a Parisian typecutter, was the smallest type created since the invention of printing. It measures a mere 4.9 points. Jannon reserved this particular type solely for his own use and did not sell it to other printers as he did with other types of his design. The French government seized Jannon's printshop in 1641 and the Imprimà rie Royale used this particularly small type, which was later mis-attributed to Garamond.

         IJsgezicht - Hendrick Avercamp.

      Wintergezicht te ?Slooten, Ao 1624?. Ets vervaardigd medio 18de-eeuw door Simon Fokke (werkzaam 1722-1784) naar ontwerp van Hendrick Avercamp. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. ca. 12 x 15,5 cm.In Nederland heerst bij vriesweer al eeuwen lang ijskoorts. Jong en oud, arm en rijk houden bij vallende temperaturen grachten, rivieren en meren nauwlettend in de gaten. Deze verbondenheid met het ijs is door niemand mooier verbeeld dan door Hendrick Avercamp (1585-1634). Hij was het die aan het begin van de 17de-eeuw het ?ijsgezicht? tot zelfstandig genre maakte. Als eerste kunstenaar specialiseerde hij zich in het schilderen van winterlandschappen met ijsvermaak. In zijn schouwspelen zijn telkens nieuwe details te ontdekken die veelal te maken hebben met vertier op het ijs.Hier zien we een visser voor een rieten schutting, hij heeft net een gat gehakt om daar zijn net in te laten zakken, een vuurkorf biedt warmte. Een eendenjager met zijn hond komt een praatje maken. Verderop - kluchtig detail - een man die met z?n blote billen boven een gat in het ijs hangt. Op de achtergrond figuren die zich per slee voortbewegen.In Avercamps taferelen schuilt een tijdloosheid die ook nu nog herkenbaar is. Het is daarom dat Avercamps winterlandschappen tegenwoordig tot de belangrijkste, typisch ?Hollandse? voorstellingen uit de 17de-eeuw worden gerekend.Prijs: ?825,-.

         [First word in Greek, transliterated as] Gynaikeion: or, nine bookes of various history. Concerninge women; inscribed by ye names of ye nine Muses.

      London: Printed by Adam Islip, 1624. Folio (30.2 cm; 11.875"). [10], 466, [2] pp. Lacks preliminary blank (only). Early encyclopedia of women's biography and history covering over 3000 mythical and actual figures, with an engraved title-page depicting the nine muses, each holding an object appropriate to her attribute, as well as Apollo holding a sun and harp. Heywood (ca. 1573–1641), a prominent poet and playwright, here ends almost a decade publication-free with a "volume celebrat[ing] strong women throughout history, from mythological goddesses to earthly leaders such as Queen Elizabeth and Queen Anne" (DNB).    Each book revolves around the themes appropriate to its sovereign muse to cover, in the end, almost any topic imaginable, from mythological women's effects on the functioning of the universe to the expectations and proper execution of marital duties to the finer points of witchcraft, among others, using a mixture of prose and verse and lots of wonderful epithets. Numerous women, both virtuous and wicked, are also individually discussed, from Greek mythology to the present day.         ESTC S119701; STC (2nd ed.), 13326. 18th-century speckled calf, highly polished covers nicely panelled in blind with well-proportioned rules and rolls, board edges ruled in gilt; rebacked with modern black leather gilt spine label, new endpapers, and preliminary blank (only) lacking. Light and limited waterstaining to top margins, light age-toning with the occasional spot, some very minor marginal wormtracking, and a few creases or short closed tears; a handful of small holes affecting type but not sense, one lost corner not affecting type. Occasional ink/pencil markings, generally minimalist but in one case flourishing into a memorable manicule. => Interesting reading from a variety of perspectives in a handsome and well designed volume.

         Historia das lutas com os Hollandezes no Brazil desde 1624 a 1654.Vienna, Carlos Finsterbeck, 1871. 8vo. With lithographed frontispiece. Contemporary green half calf, gold-tooled spine.

      Blake, p.377; Borba de Moraes, p. 883; Bosch 541; Rodrigues 2434. First edition of an interesting work on the colonial history of Brazil during the years 1624 to 1654, including the activities of the Dutch and the history of their possessions in Brazil, by Francisco A. de Varnhagen who added many notes and the original texts of many important documents at the end (pp. 281-360).The frontispiece shows a map of the coastline of Brazil and facsimiles of the official seals of the time, including those seals used by the Dutch West India Company. Varnhagen is considered to be the founder of the modern historiography of Brazil. He published his famous História geral do Brazil in Madrid in 1854. Some foxing throughout, outer margin of pp. 14-15 restored, but still a good copy. Colonial Brazil, by the founder of modern Brazilian historiography.

        Gynaikeion: or, Nine bookes of various history Concerninge women; inscribed by ye names of ye nine Muses (by Thomas Haywoode)

      London: Printed by Adam Islip, 1624. Hardbound. A bit of rubbing, new endpapers; lacking 3 blank leaves, several leaves a bit shorter, perhaps supplied from another copy; very good. Later calf with 5 raised bands and applied leather labels in compartments [x], 466 pp. Lacking blanks A1, A2 and 2R6. Title within illustrated pictorial engraved border; woodcut head-and tail-pieces. (Small folio) 28x18 cm (11x7") later full paneled calf, modern spine labels, all edges gilt All edges are gilt. Engraved title with portraits of the nine muses, woodcut head- and tailpieces Appears to lack original blanks or endpapers.
