        "Minshaei emendatio ... the guide into the tongues. With their agreement and consent with one another, as also their etymologies, that is, the reasons and derivations of all or the most part of words, in these nine languages, viz. 1. English. 2. Low Dutch. 3. High Dutch. 4. French. 5. Italian. 6. Spanish. 7. Latine. 8. Greeke. 9. Hebrew, etc. ... differing from all other dictionaries ever heretofore set forth. Also the exposition of the termes of the lawes of this land..."

      London: printed by John Haviland. 1625. "Second edition, second issue (STC 17945.5); folio, [4] & 760 columns; last leaf with bottom margin restored (no loss of any text), mild waterstain pervades the bottom gutter and margin throughout, with occasional deterioration of the paper; other modest stains throughout, mostly in the gutter; early 19th century quarter calf, brown morocco label; spine ends chipped, spine worn; a good copy. A famous polyglot dictionary, noted for its emphasis on etymology. ""Quite apart from word- lore,"" writes Ernest Weekley, ""Minsheu's work contains vast and various information for every kind of archaeologist, and I can think of few better single volumes for an intelligent Robinson Crusoe."" Although this second edition omits two languages contained in the first edition of 1617 (Welsh and Portuguese), it is ""preferred by some for its additions and corrections"" (see Lowndes, 1569). The book is also a typographic wonder. The liberal use of fonts and design mark the beginning of the conscious design of the lexicon, as such. Kennedy 2718; Alston II, 107; Zaunmuller, p. 304; Graesse IV, p. 533; Vancil, p. 165."

        Lo inganno de gl'occhi, prospettiva pratica. Trattato in acconcio della pittura. Florence, Pietro Cecconcelli, 1625. Folio. With large engraved coat-of-arms of Cardinal Carlo de Medici on title-page, Cecconcelli's woodcut, and 92 woodcut figures, diagrams and perspectival illustrations in text (7 full-page). Contemporary limp sheepskin parchment.

      Cicognara 802; Fowler 1; Kemp, The science of art, pp. 134-137; Vagnetti EIIIb13. First edition of a famous practical manual on perspective, especially of interest to painters. It's divided into three parts (on plane figures, solids and shading) and distinguished for showing how perspective practice derives from principles of visual perception. In this erudite work, he criticizes classical and modern theories of vision and modern writers on perspective for underestimating the importance of light and shadow. Accolti's writings testify to the 17th-century revival of the Leonardo's ideal of scientific painting. Carlo Pedretti has shown that the appendix to part 3, "Discorso intorno al Disegno" (pp. 144-152), dedicated to young academicians, is a paraphrase of Leonardo da Vinci's treatise on painting, now known as the Libro di pittura and that this text is the earliest "edition" of Leonardo's treatise.With an owner's entry struck through on the first flyleaf. In very good condition and with generous margins, with some tears and wrinkles in the binding.

        Suecia antiqua et hodierna.[Stockholm, 1769? (engraved ca. 1670-ca. 1750)]. 3 parts in 1 volume. Folio. With 355 engraved plates (including 3 engraved title-pages and the large view of the Swedish Church in London, often lacking); most plates double-page, several folding. Only the index is printed letterpress. Contemporary mottled calf, richly gold-tooled spine. In a modern slipcase.

      BAL 772; Berlin Kat. 2256; Lipperheide 1037; Warmholtz, Bibliotheca Historica Sueo-Gothica 207; for Dahlberg: Thieme-Becker VIII, p. 276. A magnificent series of hundreds of plates showing Sweden's (and Finland's) cities, gardens, palaces, churches and antiquities, executed by such prominent artists as Willem Swidde, Jean Marot, Adam Perelle and Jan van Aveelen. Erik Jönsson Dahlberg (1625-1703) was a military engineer and subsequently Director of Fortifications to King Karl X of Sweden. He spent three years in Frankfurt am Main, where he became acquainted with the brothers Matthaeus and Conrad Merian, then working on their epoch-making Theatrum Europeaum and their famous topographies, which greatly impressed Dahlberg. Indeed, his Suecia antiqua et hodierna "was modelled closely upon the format of Topographia Galliae (published 1655) but Dahlberg was also to improve upon his models in making Suecia more exhaustive than they" (BAL).Bookplate on pastedown. A few plates browned, one mounted on another leaf. Front hinge and head and foot of spine expertly restored. A "kunstgeschichtliche Quelle von unschätzbarem Wert und ausserdem eine ganz hervorragende künstlerische Leistung" (Thieme-Becker).

        HAKLUYTUS POSTUMUS OR PURCHAS HIS PILGRIMES. CONTAYNING A HISTORY OF THE WORLD, IN SEA VOYAGES & LANDE-TRAUELLS, BY ENGLISHMEN & OTHERS...IN FIVE BOOKS

      London: William Stansby for Henrie Fetherstone, 1625-26.. Five volumes. Numerous engraved maps and plates, many of which are folding. Extra engraved titlepage. For a detailed discussion of collations, see Wilberforce Eames' exhaustive treatment in Sabin. Folio. Late 19th-century dark blue morocco, raised bands, a.e.g., by W. Pratt, handsome gilt device on front and rear covers. Careful repairs in upper margin of titlepage in fifth volume. Map of Virginia trimmed to margin on bottom and left, with loss of margin in gutter about a quarter-inch wide, repaired in expert facsimile, and laid down on linen. Engraved titlepage expertly remargined. Otherwise fresh and clean. A very good, tall, handsome set. A beautiful set of the second great collection of English voyages, expanding upon and greatly adding to the work of Hakluyt, whose manuscripts Purchas took over after Hakluyt's death. Comprised of the first issue of the first volume (which conforms to the pagination in Sabin 66683, with the offensive text concerning the Dutch in uncanceled state), and the fourth edition (as is usual and proper) of PURCHAS HIS PILGRIMAGE as the fifth volume (second issue, with the dedication to King Charles I). The first volume contains the first state of pages 703- 706, with the offending references to the Dutch (e.g. with the headline on page 704 reading, "Hollanders lying deuices, to disgrace the English," instead of "Amboyna taken by the Dutch. Ingratitude. Boasting," as in the second issue). See Sabin for a detailed description of other issue points. Purchas collects over twelve hundred separate narratives of explorations in every part of the world. Many of the accounts relate to the New World, especially Virginia, and one of the engraved maps is Smith's famous "Map of Virginia" (here in what Philip Burden describes as the tenth state). Besides the Smith Virginia map, Purchas also includes two other maps of the greatest importance for North American cartography. The first of these is the "Briggs" map of North America, generally considered the first map to show California as an island. The Briggs map is also the first to note New Mexico by that name, and the first to name the Hudson River and Hudson Bay. The other notable American map is William Alexander's depiction of the Northeast, showing the coast from Massachusetts north to Newfoundland. As Burden notes, this is the first map to record many place names and is a "map of great importance." This set of Purchas is also notable for containing the engraved title, which is usually lacking or supplied in facsimile. Purchas began work on his massive collection in 1611, and published various editions of a short collection, with the similar title of "Purchas His Pilgrimage," over the next ten years. That publication, however, was merely a precursor to the present work, an entirely different book and arguably the greatest collection of travels and voyages ever published. The first two volumes are mainly devoted to travels in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. The third volume largely treats northern explorations and America. The fourth volume is almost entirely devoted to America. The fifth volume, PILGRIMAGE, is a supplement to all of the preceding parts, and properly completes a set of Purchas' ...PILGRIMES.... A foundation work for any collection of travels and voyages, here in a nice, tall set. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 625/173. SABIN 66682-6. CHURCH 401A. HUTH SALE 6057. BAER MARYLAND 8. HILL 1403.

        Novelas exemplares. Dirigido a Don Pedro Fernandez de Castro, Conde de Lemos.

      por Huberto Antonio, Impressor jurado al Aguila de oro,, Bruselas: 1625 - 8 hojas, 608 páginas. Encuadernación un poco posterior en plena piel con hierro sdorados en lomo y planos. Algunas hojas algo amarronadas por la calidad del papel pero muy buen ejemplar. Palau 53412. Heredia 2640. Salvá 1747. Rius 233. Givanel Mas 66. Del Río y Rico 681. Temprana edición de las Novelas Ejemplares, la Segunda de Bruselas.Esta edición va enteramente ajustada a la del mismo lugar impresa por Huberto Antonio y Roger Velpio el año 1614, y además de todos los preliminares de aquélla lleva una "Aprobación de Enrique Smeyers, Visitador de los libros, en la villa de Bruselas a 20 de Deciembre de 1624". (Rius)Las Novelas ejemplares son una serie de novelas cortas que Miguel de Cervantes escribió entre 1590 y 1612, y que publicaría en 1613 en una colección editada en Madrid por Juan de la Cuesta, dada la gran acogida que obtuvo con la primera parte del Quijote. Se trata de doce novelas cortas que siguen el modelo establecido en Italia. Su denominación de ejemplares obedece al carácter didáctico y moral que incluyen en alguna medida los relatos. Cervantes se jactaba en el prólogo de haber sido el primero en escribir en castellano este tipo de novelas al estilo italiano.Se suelen agrupar en dos series: las de carácter idealista y las de carácter realista. Las de carácter idealista, que son las más próximas a la influencia italiana, se caracterizan por tratar argumentos de enredos amorosos con gran abundancia de acontecimientos, por la presencia de personajes idealizados y sin evolución psicológica y por el escaso reflejo de la realidad. Se agrupan aquí: El amante liberal, Las dos doncellas, La española inglesa, La señora Cornelia y La fuerza de la sangre. Las de carácter realista atienden más a la descripción de ambientes y personajes realistas, con intención crítica muchas veces. Son los relatos más conocidos: Rinconete y Cortadillo, El licenciado Vidriera, La gitanilla, El coloquio de los perros o La ilustre fregona. No obstante, la separación entre los dos grupos no es tajante y, por ejemplo, en las novelas más realistas se pueden encontrar también elementos idealizantes. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        HAKLUYTUS POSTUMUS OR PURCHAS HIS PILGRIMES. CONTAYNING A HISTORY OF THE WORLD, IN SEA VOYAGES & LANDE-TRAUELLS, BY ENGLISHMEN & OTHERS...IN FIVE BOOKS

      London: William Stansby for Henrie Fetherstone, 1625-1626.. Five volumes. Folio. Crushed blue morocco, gilt, by W. Pratt, covers with central gilt arabesques, spines lettered in gilt in six compartments, marbled endpapers, a.e.g. A fine copy. The second great collection of English voyages, expanding upon and greatly adding to the work of Hakluyt, whose manuscripts Purchas took over after Hakluyt's death. Purchas collects over twelve hundred separate narratives of explorations in every part of the world. Many of the accounts relate to the New World, especially Virginia, and one of the engraved maps is Smith's famous "Map of Virginia." Besides the Smith Virginia map, Purchas also includes two other maps of the greatest importance for North American cartography. The first of these is the "Briggs" map of North America, generally considered the first map to show California as an island. The Briggs map is also the first to note New Mexico by that name, and the first to name the Hudson River and Hudson Bay. The other notable American map is William Alexander's depiction of the Northeast, showing the coast from Massachusetts north to Newfoundland. As Burden notes, this is the first map to record many place names and is a "map of great importance." Purchas began work on his massive collection in 1611, and published various editions of a short collection, with the similar title of "Purchas His Pilgrimage," over the next ten years. That publication, however, was merely a precursor to the present work, an entirely different book and arguably the greatest collection of travels and voyages ever published. The first two volumes are mainly devoted to travels in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. The third volume largely treats northern explorations and America. The fourth volume is almost entirely devoted to America. The fifth volume, PILGRIMAGE, is a supplement to all of the preceding parts, and properly completes a set of Purchas' ...PILGRIMES....

        [Decamerone, in English.] The Modell of Wit, Mirth, Eloquence, and Conversation

      [London:] Printed by Isaac Jaggard,, 1625. Framed in Ten Dayes, of an hundred curious Pieces, by seven honourable ladies, and three noble gentlemen. Preserved to Posterity by the renowned John Boccacio, the first refiner of Italian prose: and now translated into English. 2 volumes bound in one, folio (274 × 170 mm), first volume gathered in sixes, second volume in fours. Contemporary dark calf, rebacked with original gilt spine laid down, red morocco label sometime added in second compartment, corners skilfully restored. Housed in a dark brown flat back cloth solander box. Titles within woodcut borders, the border to volume II composed of 6 woodcut medallions repeated as vignettes throughout both volumes, decorative woodcut head- and tailpieces and initials, typographic head- and tailpieces. Small ink ownership inscription of the English poet Martyn Skinner (1906-1993), dated 1935, to front free endpaper. Some wear and cracklure to the binding, first title just shaved at fore-edge margin and with small hole at centre not affecting text, remains of old ink (faded) over imprint, second title just shaved at head and fore-margin, a few trivial marks internally, a few small paper restorations to blank lower outer corners, overall a very good copy. The Decameron in English: second edition in English of volume I; first edition of volume II, as often. The translation is attributed on stylistic grounds to John Florio. Boccaccio's Decamerone, composed between 1348 and 1351, a collection of one hundred novelle was hugely influential in England, its canonical status reinforced by the imitations of Chaucer, Shakespeare, Dryden, Keats, and Tennyson, yet Boccaccio's masterpiece nevertheless came to the English language late, significantly later than the first translations into French, Spanish, Catalan, and German. Florio apparently worked with both the Salviati (1582) edition of the Decameron and Antoine Le Maçon's (1545) French version to hand. He shows some uneasiness in presenting the Italian novelle to an English readership and amending a Catholic author for a Protestant audience. Moral applications are interjected between the brief summaries of the tales and the novelle themselves, and the names of some characters are anglicized or given in French forms. The translation is dedicated to Sir Philip Herbert, the future fourth Earl of Pembroke, whose father had been tutored by Florio. The first volume was first published in 1620. The second volume has a separate title, The Decameron … The last Five Dayes, also dated 1620, but the 1625 title page of the first volume is specifically worded as a general title for the whole work, implying that Jaggard intended this edition to be issued thus, two volumes in one. Isaac Jaggard was successor to his father William, best known as the printer, in 1623, of the first folio of Shakespeare's plays, which recent scholars have suggested was edited by John Florio.

        Memoires du sieur Richer ambassadeur pour les roys tres-chrestiens Francois premier & Henry second en Suede & Dannemarch. [=headline].

      1625 - Troyes, 1625. 8:o. 22 leaves. Elegant contemporary varnished tan calf with raised bands, somewhat worn, spine richly gilt and with crimson and green morocco labels, sides with gilt border, gilt cover edges and inner dentelles. Marbled edges. Major dampstain throughout, closely cut, at places into signatures and catchwords. With the bookstamp of Fredrik Vult von Steijern.Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 8204: "This extremely rare little book". The Royal Library's copy is bound last in a volume beginning with "Melanges historiques", printed 1619 in Troyes. The latter work seems to have been enlarged with several separate appendixes in the form of travel books like Richer's, whose text was printed two years after the previous appendix. These appendixes all have separate signatures and paginations. In Richer's "Memoires" is found, on leaf 3 verso-9 recto, "Memoires dressé par le sieur Richer sur la conference qu'il eut par commandement du roy avec le secretaire du roy du Suede". The text concerns a visit in Chastellerault 1541 in 1541 by the Swedish ambassador Frantz Trebou, sent there by "Gostuë roy de Shuede & des goths". [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Opera physica anatomica: de formato foetu, de venarum ostiolis, de formatione ovi et pulli, de locutione et eius instrumentis, de brutorum loquela.

      Roberti Meglietti, Padua 1625 - 5 parts in one volume. Folio (403 x 273 mm). General title with engraved printer¿s device, [4], 150, [2] pp, 34 plates (including unnumbered plate on verso of plate XI, 11 double page); 23 [1] pp., 8 plates (1 double page); 68, [2] pp., 7 plates (including 4 unnumbered bound at the end); 27, [5] pp., 1 plate; 27, [3] pp. In total fifty engraved copper plates of which twelve are double-page. Contemporary sprincled calf, spine with 5 raised bands gilt in compartments (binding rubbed, corners and extremities worn, joints slighty cracked), marbled pastedowns. Internally fresh, with only very minor spotting, marginal finger soiling and browning, most plates with the edges folded in, plate 8 somewhat frayed at fore-margin. Provenance: Presentation copy from the anatomist and neurologist Sir Charles Bell (1774-1842) with his inscription on first flyleaf: "George J. Bell from his uncle Sir Charles Bell." Sir Charles Bell's brother was George Joseph Bell (1770-1843), a distinguished Scottish advocate; George J. Bell was one of his sons. Presentation inscriptions by Charles Bell, possibly the most distinguished anatomist and physiologist of his time, are of considerable rarity. An outstanding association copy of one of the greatest works in the history of anatomy. ---- NLM/Krivatsy 3804/3831 ; Norman 750 ; Wellcome I, 2126 ; Waller 2886 ; Hirsch-H. II, 460 ff. ; Grolier Medicine 27b ; Franklin, « Valves in veins : An historical survey, » Proc. Roy. Soc. Medicine 21 (1927), pp.1-33 - Important first collected edition, very rare. Fabrici¿s best known and most important medical work is his classic monograph on the venous valves, De venarum ostiolis, firt published in Padua in 1603 and reissued with four other works in 1625 under the general title Opera anatomica and Opera physica anatomica, respectively. This tract, published originally as an unbound folio pamphlet consisting of 23 pages of text and 8 engr. Plates, has been described as one of the rarest and most beautiful works in the history of anatomical illustrations. Among the plates is the well-known depiction of the surface anatomy of the veins of the forearm that William Harvey adapted to illustrate his De motu cordis. Although Fabrici did not fully appreciate the functional significance of the venous valves, hist work was a crucial precursor of Harvey¿s discovery. As Harvey told the British physicist and chemist Robert Boyle, i twas his recognition of the significance of Fabrici¿s observations and his own realization of the function of the venous valves that led him to conceptualize the circulation of the blood (Grolier, Medicine, p.104). - Fabricius's De Venarum Ostiolis (On the Valves of the Veins) was the first detailed demonstration of the existence of venous valves, and it contains the first extended illustrations of them. It was the immediately significant precursor of the De Motu Cordis of William Harvey, who studied for two years at Padua where Fabricius was Professor of Anatomy; and Harvey used the great double-plate of the veins of the arm in his own book 25 years later. Apart from his importance in relation to Harvey, Fabricius has in recent years been increasingly recognized as a man of mark in his own right; and in 1933 a translation, with reduced-size facsimile, was made of the De Venarum Ostiolis by K. J. Franklin (History of Science Society, through Charles C Thomas, Springfield, Illinois). The most striking feature of the splendidly produced editio princeps is the series of full-page plates. As Franklin says: "The sumptuously printed folios which Fabricius published in 1603-1604 were issued separately, and unbound. Though they escaped Choulant's notice, they are among the rarest and most beautiful works in the history of anatomical illustration. The plates are magnificent; in fact nothing on their scale had been seen since the days of Vesalius." In addition to its significance in the history of anatomy, the De Venarum Ostiolis is a book of the hi [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        L'Histoire du Vieux et du Nouveau Testament, avec des Explications edifiantes, tirees des Saints Peres

      16mo. Full calf, compartments, gilt spine decoration and gilt title ("Sainte Bible") on crimson spine label. (20pp), 583pp. Sewn-in silk page marker. Tables, numerous small decorative woodcuts. Marbled endpapers. Very good overall. Bit of leather damage at lower right tip of front board, with small chips at head and tail of spine; age toning to opening and closing preliminary leaves; contemporary ownership signature on inner flyleaf; small stain at bottom of some pages, though most are bright, clean and lovely. Tight, clean, attractive early printing of the noted "Bible de Royaumont" or "Sainte Bible" in an early (circa late 18th century) binding. De Royaupont (Nicolas Fontaine,1625-1709) was companion to the reknowned French theologian, priest of Port-Royal and humanist Lemaistre de Sacy (1613-84) during his captivity at the Bastille (1666-68), where he completed his famed translation of the Old Testament (known as the "Bible de Sacy" or "Bible de Port-Royal") -- supposedly with much help from Fontaine -- which became the most popular French version of the Bible in the 18th century. Fontaine's "History of the Old and New Testaments, with Edifying Explanations, from the Holy Fathers" was first published in Paris in 1670. Pierre La Petit published it again in 1681, and in 1687 Denys Thierry obtained the rights to it. Perhaps most interesting about this copy is that six leaves (pp. 25-26, pp. 29-36 and pp. 39-40) were removed at some point in the 18th century and replaced with beautifully handwritten replacements (including header and blank rule), clearly of 18th century vintage. It's been suggested these leaves were removed by a censor, but this is not definitive and clearly it would take a line-by-line comparison of these handwritten leaves against another 1692 copy to determine if any text has been altered or deleted. It's an intriguing notion, though, for the Jansenism reform movement within the Roman Catholic church, of which this volume was a part, was often heated and often violent. Censorship was not outside the realm of possibility.
