        LA VITA E MIRACOLI DEL GLORIOSISSIMO PADRE SANTO FRANCESCO DI PAOLA

      - fondatore dell'ordine de minimi. Con le rima di don Oratio Nardino Cosentino. All' illustrissimo et reverendissimo signore monsignore cardinale Boncompagno arcivescovo di Napoli da vostro illusstrissimo et reverendissimo umillissimo servitore. Giovanni Orlandi. In Napoli, dato in luce per Giovanni Orlandi, [1627?]. De 23x17 cm. Com 64 gravuras (19x13 cm). Encadernção da época em pergaminho rígido. Exemplar apresenta as gravuras nº 46. 47 e 54 com impressões deficientes ou desgastadas; e um ex-libris recente. A edição original é de Nápoles, 1622, e este conjunto de gravuras apresenta uma enorme qualidade gráfica, excepto as gravuras referidas, sendo esta possivelmente a segunda estampagem dos mesmos originais calcográficos. Obra composta por 64 gravuras de Alessandro Baratta, com rimas de Don Orazio Nardino Cosentino. Este livro, publicado em 1622 e recentemente descoberto e comentado por Concetta Bevilacqua, contém 64 gravuras de página inteira reproduzindo cenas da Vida e Milagres de São Francisco de Paula. A obra foi encomenda ao mestre de gravador Alessandro Baratta, nascido em 1583 e que viveu em Nápoles onde era o proprietário de um grande estúdio. Todas as gravuras se encontram acompanhadas de versos explicativos de Don Orazio Nardino. Os comentários que acompanham as belas imagens do século XVII foram feitos numa linguagem muito simplificada para permitir que todos possam aprender mais sobre a vida e os milagres do grande milagreiro da Calabria. A book very rare and hardly found, recently bibliographically rediscovered. Alessandro Barata is the author of these 64 plates bound in contemporary parchment. Presumably the plates were made out of a calcographic matrix, to which were added poems of Oratio Nardino Cosentino on the bottom of each page. They describe the life of St. Francis of Paola and the amazing and countless miracles he did, mostly related to the fire, and some of them with the resurrection and ?recomposition? of the human body. The work does not have a title page, and probably each plate was to be sold as a ?register?, or icon, of the saint. The first plate is a frontispice about the saint, but has no typographical data. There are 2 editions. The original edition is of Naples, 1622, and the 2nd edition of Naples, 1627. This set of prints presents a good graphic quality, but possibly this issue is the later one, due to the fading of 3 matrices (46. 47 and 54). Location/localizacao: 6-AF-C

        De lactibus sive lacteis venis quarto vasorum mesaraicorum genere novo invento. dissertatio.

      Giovanni Battista Bidelli, Milan 1627 - Exceptionally fine copy, untouched in original boards from the collection of Jean Blondelet, of the first scientific and systematic study of the lymphatic system, and the first book with anatomical illustrations printed in color. This is a rare book on the market: just three copies auctioned the past fifty years (Sotheby’s 1992; the Haskell Norman copy 1998; Evans-Friedman copy 2001) – this copy much superior to all three. Provenance: rear paste-down with the marking of Blondelet, and with his preferred custom morocco box by Duval. "Jean Blondelet was probably the greatest, but least known, French collector of rare medical and scientific books in the 20th century." (Jeremy Norman).?Grolier/Medicine 26; Norman 76; Heirs of Hippocrates 453; Lilly, Notable Medical Books 61."Among the last to continue the preeminent northern Italian traditions of anatomy and physiology, Aselli studied medicine at the University of Padua with Giambattista Carcano Leone, himself a pupil of Gabriele Falloppio. He subsequently obtained a position with the Spanish army in Milan that allowed him sufficient leisure for research. The context in which Aselli studied and experimented was one of considerable intellectual excitement, and although he died young, he was nonetheless able to make some important contributions to the history of medicine. "In 1622, while performing vivisection on a dog, Aselli chanced upon the lacteal vessels, which had gone virtually unnoticed since Galen and Erasistratus reported their documentation by Hippocrates and Aristotle. Aselli’s achievement was not only to have ‘rediscovered’ these vessels but to have clarified their nature and function. However, Aselli’s De lactibus siue lacteis venis is important also as a landmark in the history of anatomical illustration: it may well be the first publication to use colored illustrations in the service of scientific clarity. The four chiaroscuro woodcut charts that accompany the text use color - black, dark red, light red, and the natural white of the paper - to distinguish more precisely the different types of vessels from one another. "Although De lactibus siue lacteis venis probably had no influence on Harvey, its findings were confirmed later in the seventeenth century by such anatomists as Nicolaas Tulp, Guerner Rolfinck, and Johann Vesling. Aselli’s work also significantly influenced Jean Pecquet’s vascular researches. "The color-printed woodcuts illustrating the first edition of De lactibus siue lacteis venis have been attributed to Caesare Bassano, who engraved the title and the portrait of Aselli for this edition and who was also a wood-engraver, or to Bassano’s associate Domenico Falcini. Preparatory drawings and proofs for the plates are preserved at the College of Physicians of Philadelphia. Aselli’s work was reprinted in Basel in 1628, in Leiden in 1640, and in Amsterdam in 1645 (the last in Adriaan van de Spiegel’s Opera quae extant omnia). In all of these later editions, the illustrations were reduced in size and printed in black only from copperplate engravings." (Grolier, One Hundred Books Famous in Medicine). 4to (244 x 188 mm, uncut), original publishers boards, pp. [16] 1-79 [9]. Engraved title and engraved author portrait by Cesare Bassano, both conjugate with text leaves; Tab. I-IIII: 4 folding chiaroscuro woodcuts printed in black, dark red, and light red. A completley untouched copy, fresh and crsip, in its original state from the publisher. Highly scarce is such fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition]

Edition originale rare. Sur le modèle publié quatorze ans plus tôt des Aphorismes Civill and Militarie de Robert Dallington - précepteur du Prince héritier d'Angleterre, Ancelot-Mathias de Mouchemberg rassembla ses réflexions qu'il dédia à Antoine Ruzé marquis d'Effiat. Rentré d'Angleterre où il négocia avec succès le mariage d'Henriette de France avec Charles Ier d'Angleterre, Ruzé d'Effiat fut nommé surintendant des Finances en 1626 un an avant la publication de Mouchemberg. Avec l'adresse au lecteur, cet ouvrage méconnu est aussi remarquable par le choix du terme Essais probablement employé une deuxième fois dans un titre depuis Montaigne, après L'Essai des merveilles de la Nature et des plus nobles artifices du Père Binet en 1621.

        LE VOYAGE DE L'ILLUSTRE SEIGNEUR ET CHEVALIER FRANCOIS DRACH ADMIRAL D'ANGLETERRE, A L'ENTOUR DU MONDE.

      Paris: Jean Gesselin, 1627. - [6],230,[2]pp. Contemporary vellum. Bookplate on front pastedown. Later ownership notations to titlepage. Minor toning and soiling. Very good. First augmented French edition, adding considerable material to the first French edition of 1613. This is the first separate appearance of this account of Drake's famous voyage of 1577-1580, the second circumnavigation and the first English voyage around the world, translated by F. de Louvencourt, Sieur de Vauchelles and enlarged from his 1613 edition of Part I only. The text is traditionally attributed to Francis Pretty, though it is more likely that the information was compiled by Richard Hakluyt himself from three or more sources (see Wagner, DRAKE'S VOYAGE). The account of Drake's voyage first appeared in Hakluyt's PRINCIPALL NAVIGATIONS. and was subsequently translated into French (the 1613 edition). Wagner notes that the additional information found in the present edition but not in Hakluyt is "small but significant" and calls this "the most complete translation of all." The second part includes material on the East Indies, the Middle East and Persia, and Africa: "The voyage of Drake extends only to page 82, the second part being devoted to an account of countries which the great English navigator never saw" - Wagner. Drake's circumnavigation, the second successful voyage around the world (the first being Magellan's expedition), extended British maritime power into the Pacific for the first time, threatened the Spanish empire in America to its heart, opened a new age in British seamanship, and made Drake a rich man. Sailing from Plymouth in December 1577, the expedition reached Patagonia in June 1578, weathered a near mutiny, and saw the second ship, the Elizabeth, turn back during the stormy passage of the Straits of Magellan. Drake sailed on alone in the Golden Hind, raiding Spanish commerce along the Pacific coast of the Americas and culminating his piracy with the seizure of a major treasure galleon. This exploit allowed him to pay a 4,600% dividend to his backers on returning to England. In 1579 he explored northward up the California coast, discovered San Francisco Bay, and went as far north as Vancouver. He then crossed the Pacific, took on a cargo of spices in the East Indies, and went home by the Cape of Good Hope, arriving back at Plymouth in September 1580. It was the most heroic feat of seamanship of the age. A handsome copy of this important and rare work. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 627/121. SIR FRANCIS DRAKE AS SEEN BY HIS CONTEMPORARIES, p.67.

        VOX PISCIS: OR, THE BOOKFISH CONTAYNING THREE TREATISES WHICH WERE FOUND IN THE BELLY OF A COD FISH IN CAMBRIDGE MARKET, ON MIDSUMMER EUE LAST, ANNO DOMINI 1626

      London: Printed for James Boler and Robert Milbovrne, 1627. 12mo. 19th century diced calf, spine gilt extra, morocco labels, later neatly rebacked, with much of the original backstrip laid down, a.e.g. With the piscatorial bookplate of Dean Sage, and another. An imperfect copy (see below), properly deaccessioned as an institutional duplicate, with bookplate bearing requisite withdrawal stamps. First collective edition, though parts two through four have separate dated title leaves, paginations and registers. According to the editor's conceit, the original text of the work was found in the belly of a fish. On June 23, 1626, scholar and theologian Dr. Joseph Mede (or Mead) of Christ's College, Cambridge, was walking through Cambridge's market, when a fishwife found a book wrapped in sailcloth inside the stomach of a codfish caught at King's Lynn. These texts were attributed to protestant reformer John Frith (1503-1533), who was imprisoned in a fish- cellar in Oxford and later burned at the stake. "Attributed as a whole to John Frith in part 1, which is sometimes attributed to Thomas Goad. Part 2, 'The preparation to the Crosse and to death,' is a reprint of 'Of the preparation to the Crosse, and to deathe,' 1540 (STC 11393), translated by and sometimes attributed to Richard Tracy as well as to Frith. Part 3, 'A mirrour, or, glasse to know thy selfe' and 'A briefe instruction, to teach a person willingly to die, and not to feare death,' is a reprint of Frith's 'A letter wryten unto the faythful folowers of Christes Gospell' (1548-9 STC 11385.5). Part 4, 'The treasure of knowledge,' is a revision of the anonymous 'The fountayne or well of lyfe' (STC 11211), not by Frith" - ESTC. In this copy, Part 1 lacks the frontis and A12; Part 2 lacks L3-4, and Part 4 lacks H1 and H12. In the first part B8, 11 & 12 have marginal flaws (the latter two with old repairs) not affecting the text. The plate for Part 2 is present. The present copy is of the variant with page 239 properly numbered. ESTC S102646. STC 11395.

Venise et Padoue, Evangelista Deuchino et Giovanni-Batista de Martinis, 1627 et [1626], , 3 ouvrages en 1 vol. in-folio, [12]-328 (i.e. 330)-[12] p. ; [3] ff. et 97 pl. ; [8]-104 p. et 9 pl. dans le texte, vélin rigide estampé à froid de l'époque, dos à nerfs, ÉDITION ORIGINALE de cette réunion, mise en oeuvre par Daniel Bucretius en 1627 : elle se compose de la première édition posthume du De humani corporis fabrica de Spiegel (l'édition originale a paru pour la première fois à Venise en 1625) et de l'édition originale, posthume également, des Tabulae de Casseri (ou Casserio, ou Casserius). Belle marque typographique à la double ancre d'Evangelista Deuchino, au verso du dernier feuillet de Casseri . Chaque partie a son titre propre, dans le bel encadrement allégorique gravé par Francesco Valesio, figurant l'Anatomie qui siège sous un dais dominant une structure architecturale au pied de laquelle se trouve une table où sont disposés les outils du chirurgien. Les Tabulae de Casseri sont bien complètes des 97 planches finement gravées en taille-douce par Valesio d'après Odoardo Fialetti, élève du Tintoret, avec explications en regard. 78 d'entre elles avaient été commandées par Casseri de son vivant ; Bucretius, Daniel Rindfleisch (1600-1631) de son vrai nom, les reçut des héritiers en vue de les publier avec la Fabrica de Spiegel, mais il n'en utilisa que 77, l'une d'entre elles ayant été endommagée. Il y adjoint 20 nouveaux cuivres, dont il confia la réalisation aux mêmes artistes (2 vues d'homme de face et de dos, 10 planches d'ostéologie, 1 vue des muscles faciaux, 5 planches d'après Vésale figurant le système nerveux et vasculaire, 2 planches se rapportant au passage de l'air, à la vue et à l'ouïe). Exemplaire complet, bien qu'on n'y trouve pas la dédicace de Bucretius datée du 1er février 1627, qui ne figure que dans certains tirages ("it had benn asserted that in these copies the engravings have not been very careully printed" - Choulant). "[This plates] are among the finest produced in the seventeenth century and are remarkable for their accuracy, beauty of excecution, and tasteful arrangement" (Heirs of Hippocrates). On trouve, relié in fine, l'ÉDITION ORIGINALE padouane du De formato foetu de Spiegel, illustrée des 9 cuivres provenant eux aussi du fonds de Casseri : la publication est due au gendre de Spiegel, Liberalis Crema de Padoue, qui avait fait l'acquisition de plusieurs cuivres auprès du petit fils de Casseri . Il sélectionna ces 9 figures, appropriées pour l'édition du De formato, et y ajouta ses propres explications en regard. "They are among Casserius' most beautiful engravings" (Choulant). Rare. Casseri (1561-1616) et Spiegel (1578-1625) furent tous deux élèves de Fabrizio d'Acquapendente ; Casseri succéda au maître à la chaire d'anatomie et de chirurgie de Padoue, qui revint ensuite à Spiegel en 1616. Krivatsky (17th), n° 2202, 11295 et 11297. Heirs of Hippocrates, n° 282, 283. Choulant, p. 225-226. Vélin habilement restauré. Titre-frontispice de la première pièce doublé.

        Carte de l'Amerique corrigee et augmentee dessus Toutes les aultres cy devant faictes par P. Bertius

      [Paris, 1627. Copper-engraved map, insets of polar regions. Scarce first state of Tavernier's separately-issued map of North America, including insets of the Arctic and Antarctic regions. In 1627, Tavernier, the most important mapseller and publisher in France, published a set of the four continents after Bertius, though possibly without his permission. Although crediting Bertius, the map more closely follows the Hondius mapping of 1618, with the completed northwest coast line, similar mapping of the Great Lakes and similar decorative ships and sea monsters (though without the decorative surround). However, unlike the Hondius map, here the southern coast of Tierra del Fuego is completed, as per the Bertius map of 1624. The map was first issued separately, and then issued in Tavernier's Theatre Geographique . The present example is the rare, separately-issued first state; the subsequent issue published after 1640 included additional toponyms, such as "Neuf Amsterdam" (i.e. New York), "Pleymouth", "Accadie" and others.

        Moscavw. Moscovia, Urbs, regionis eiusde nominis metropolitia, duplo maior.

      - Highly decorative originally coloured bird's eye view of Moscow. The images in the fort show soldiers and two types of cattle, typical for the region. The first one is the European bison and the right one the aurochs, an extinct type of large wild cattle that inhabited Europe, Asia and North Africa. As the aurochs became rarer hunting it became a privilege of the nobility. Poland and Russia were the last territories, where aurochs survived into the 16th and early 17th century, still being documented by Herberstein and Braun and Hogenberg. The last recorded aurochs died in Jaktorów Forest, Poland in 1627. Both images together with the text, telling the difference between the two species, are based upon Sigismund von Herberstein’s book on Russia from 1556. The view was published in "Civitates orbis terrarum" by Georg Braun and Frans Hogenberg, first published in 1575. The engraving was replaced in the last edition from 1618 with a different view. A fine copy with beautiful original colouring.

Blatt marginal leicht stockfleckig (Sujet wenig sichtbar tangiert), in neueren Passepartout montiert. Gesamthaft recht gutes Exemplar in kräftigem Abzug, stellenweise mit feinem Plattenrand u. marginal zartem Plattenton. Blatt 16 aus: Daniel Meisner et al., Thesauri Philopolitici Tomi Secundi, Pars Prima [od. oder ?Politisches Schatzkästleins Zweyten Buchs, Erster Theil?, resp. Bd. 2.1; vgl. die digitalis.

Dies womöglich als Würdigung seiner Verdienste um den Wiederaufbau des Klosters nach dem Brand von 1577. ? Lit.: Achtnich/Staudenmann, Schweizer Ansichten 1477?1786, Bern 1978, p. 49; W. u. A. B. Oechslin, Die Kunstdenkmäler des Kantons Schwyz. NA Bd. III.II, Bern 2003, p. 43 u. p. 217 m. Abb. 193 von Version 1638; ebenso bei J. Eberle, Das alte Einsiedeln, 1984, p. 16 f. ?? Das Blatt stellt eine der frühesten gedruckten Darstellungen des Klosters von Süden in der quasi alt-neuen Gestalt dar: ?Bis zum Brand von 1577 war das Kloster noch ein romanisch-gotisches Bauwerk.? (Eberle, p. 18). Eine Ansicht von Norden in der Chronik des Diebold Schilling von 1513 veranschaulicht diese frühere Architektur (vgl. Oechslin, p. 205, Abb. 187). ?Der fünfte Stiftsbau, der [nach dem Brand] erfolgte, glich dem vorausgegangenen bis auf einige kleine Abweichungen.? (L. Birchler, Die Einsiedler Stiftskirche und ihr Architekt Bruder Caspar Moosbrugger. Augsburg 1924, p. 2). Die Darstellung des Dorfes als Staffage ist dagegen gem. Oechslin frei gestaltet (p. 217). ? Die der damaligen Aktualität nicht mehr völlig entsprechende Zeichnung des Klosters durch Meisner/Kieser dürfte weitgehend von einem Kupferstich aus dem Jahre 1597, ausgeführt von Heinrich Stacker, inspiriert sein. Bereits unter Abt Ulrichs Nachfolger, Augustin I. Hofmann, Abt von 1600 bis 1629, wurden z.B. als augenfälligste Um- und Neubauten schon um 1611 ein neuer ?Glockenturm auf dem Kirchendach über der Gnadenkapelle [und] ein runder Turm an der nordöstlichen Ecke der Klostermauer?, das sog. Salztürmlein, errichtet (Oechslin, p. 217 u. 219). 1612 war ausserdem ?der südliche Turmhelm heruntergestürzt. Der südliche Turm wurde im gleichen Jahr repariert, wenig später dann jedoch erneuert. Damals erhielt er seinen auf verschiedenen Ansichten erkennbaren barocken Helm.? (Oechslin p. 219; vgl. dazu die beiden Abbildungen in P. Albert Kuhn, Der jetzige Stiftsbau Maria-Einsiedeln, 2. Aufl. 1913, p. 13 u. 17). ? Die vorliegende Ansicht zeigt mit einer gewissen Authentizität das Erscheinungsbild des Klosters um das Jahr 1600. Abt Augustins Amtsnachfolger waren danach ihrerseits mit mehr oder weniger bedeutenden Renovationen, Um- und Neubauten beschäftigt, so dass das Fürstliche Stift Maria Einsiedeln als Work in Progress im 17. Jahrhundert ohnehin nur für relativ kurze Phasen einen abgeschlossenen Zustand darbot. Diese Dauerbaustelle ?führte dazu, dass man in Einsiedeln im Jahre 1702 beschloss, unter vollständigem Abbruch des alten Klosters, den heutigen, sechsten Stiftsbau zu errichten.? (Eberle, p. 17). ?1703 begann der Neubau des Klosters nach dem Plane des Einsiedler Laienbruders Caspar Moosbrugger, den die Einsiedler Klostertradition von jeher als den Hauptarchitekten bezeichnete. [.] Vorläufiger Abschluss der Arbeiten am Kloster 1717. [.] 1719 Beginn des Kirchenbaues nach neuen, ganz andern Plänen.

         Van de byen, hare wonderlyke oorspronk, natuer, eygenschap, kragtige, ongehoorde ende seltsame werken: als ook hare besondere politien ende ordentlyke regeeringen onder haren koning. Amsterdam, Jan Evertsz. Kloppenburg, 1627. 8vo. With an engraved title-page. Limp vellum (ca. 1700?). .

      KVK & WorldCat (4 copies); STCN (3 copies) ; cf. Hagen, p. 134 (other eds.). Rare fourth(?) edition of a fascinating popular Dutch guide to bees, beekeeping, honey and beeswax. The engraved title-page appears to have been newly made for this edition, making it the first and almost only illustrated edition. The book is written in the form of a dialogue between Clutius and his friend Carolus Clusius, each in his turn providing information on the bees themselves, with their characteristics, habits and remarkable social organization beekeeping and the production and use of honey and beeswax. This last part gives numerous very interesting medical, culinary and household recipes involving honey and beeswax. The largest illustration on the title-page shows a workshop for processing honey and beeswax, with nearly a dozen workmen occupied with various tasks. Clutius was fascinated by the social structure of a bee colony, which seemed to parallel the hierarchies of human society, something that also captured the public imagination. The work proved very popular, going through a dozen editions in the Netherlands and Antwerp for more than a century.With a small rust hole in 1 leaf and worm holes at the head and foot of the gutter margin throughout, just touching a letter of the text on a couple leaves, but otherwise in good condition. Binding with a few dark marks and slightly wrinkled, but otherwise very good. One of the earliest detailed accounts of bees, beekeeping, honey and beeswax, grounded in scholarship but written in a popular style..

        Histoire ecclésiastique des isles et royaumes du Iapon,

      P., Sébastien Cramoisy 1627-29, - 2 volumes in-4 de (4)-802-(17) pp. et (24)-1023- (24) pp., 2 titres gravés, 1 gravure pleine page, reliures plein veau de l'époque, dos à nerfs richement ornés. Ouvrage rédigé par le P. Solier de la Compagnie de Jésus (1558-1638), à partir des lettres de François Xavier, des relations envoyées à l'ordre des jésuites de Rome et des lettres de missionnaires inédites, et dont seulement certaines seront publiées ultérieurement. Il s'agit du premier grand ouvrage français sur le Japon, qui sera repris et remanié pendant près d'un siècle. Ainsi, comme il le note lui-même dans son introduction, Crasset a tiré en grande partie son Histoire de l'Eglise du Japon de celle de Solier, en la continuant après 1624. Pour la première fois ici apparaît en Occident le terme hara-kiri, ou encore la description des moxas. On y trouve aussi l'extraordinaire histoire de Yasuke, le premier samurai noir, un esclave affranchi qui accompagna d'abord le jésuite Alessandro Valignano avant d'entrer au service de Oda Nobunaga (1581), de même bien sûr que la description des premières ambassades japonaises à Rome (1585) et l'étude de la pénétration des missions au Japon. Les deux volumes ont été publiés à trois ans d'intervalle, et les reliures sont très légèrement différentes. Le volume un contient une table des matières mais pas de table des chapitres. Restaurations aux coiffes et aux mors, ainsi qu'à quelques feuillets. Cordier BJ 312-313 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        CLOSET for Ladies and Gentlevvomen. Or, The Art of preserving, conserving, and candying

      Printed by John Hauiland, London 1627 - UNUSUALLY WELL PRESERVED COPY 12mo. 96 unnumbered leaves. A-H12. Roman letter, titles in Italic. Title and text within woodcut border, woodcut floriated initials and typographical headpieces. Light age yellowing, quire D lightly browned, woodcut borders at outer margin very fractionally trimmed on a few leaves, title slightly dusty, the odd thumb mark. A good, clean copy, in antique style red morocco, covers bordered with single gilt rule, spine with gilt raised bands, vase tools gilt at centers, green morocco label gilt, combed marble end-papers, all edges gilt. An unusually well preserved copy of this extremely rare and delightful volume. The first part concentrates on ‘the art of preserving, conserving, and candying’ with additional recipes for syrups and banqueting dishes. The second deals with the medicines and salves needed for a household of the period. Even now the author remains anonymous, not even a set of initials appears in any of the editions, there is no introduction, epistle, dedication or acknowledgement. It is possible the manuscript of ‘A Closet’ was written by a literate woman, intended for her household and personal use. The work was entered into the Stationer’s records in 1602, so it appears that the Elizabethan manuscript may have been acquired and then remained in the printer’s office for years prior to publication. It is possible that a first work on general cookery was intended to precede it, which might explain why the work jumps straight into the recipes with no prefatory material. The work describes the domestic arts of candies and preserves that well-off ladies, gentlewomen, and housewives of the gentry might be expected to be skilled in during the late-16th until the mid-17th century and does not deal with the day-to-day cookery of a household. It provides the recipes for making those very special banqueting sweets of sugar, pastes, and waters which were thought to be necessary for special occasions and as suitable gifts as well as cosmetics eg for the preservation of a white complexion. Many bibliographies have attributed the ‘Closet’ to Sir Hugh Platt. as the anonymous ‘Closet’ were sometimes bound with Plat’s Delightes, but there seems little reason to suppose Plat wrote the Closet and allowed it to be sold anonymously and not take credit. The second section is substantial, giving a variety of remedies for medical conditions, diseases, acquired ills like worms and pests, and accidental conditions like broken bones. It also clearly represents another manuscript, probably from a different household. These medical recipes for dealing with burns, piles, worms, collick, sores, toothache, "for the pestilence," laxatives, menstrual problems, falling sickness, and mad dogges are written in a different style but do contain a few recipes for cookery and perfumes. These include a recipe for making fresh cheese, for the dessert known as snow, and an amusing recipe for King Henry VIII’s perfume. ‘The Closet’ represents perhaps hundreds of similar manuscripts that were once kept and prized by English households which have largely been lost. A good copy of a fascinating and rare work providing much insight into the history of food, drink and cosmetics.

      Picarta (1 copy); WorldCat (same copy); cf. STCN (2 copies of 16 January 1627 ed.); Tiele, Pamfletten 2213; Wulp 2006. Second copy located of the only known edition of the third(?) revised version, promulgated on 17 March 1627, of a proclamation specifying the numbers, types and weights of cannons and other arms as well as the number of men and boys required for ships in various weight classes, covering (separately) both merchant ships and fishing ships (the latter would include whaling, though only herring fishery is explicitly mentioned). War with Spain had resumed at the end of the 12 Years' Truce in 1621, so that ships were always in danger of attack. An appendix, also dated 17 March 1627, gives instructions for the officials who were to oversee the Dutch shipping in the Øresund (between Denmark and Sweden) and the Vlie (between the islands off the coast of Friesland), as well as major centres elsewhere in the Netherlands. The only other copy we have located is in the Rotterdam Public Library.With a small worm hole through most leaves, a few faintly browned patches and one corner of 2 leaves torn off, not approaching the text. The sewing has come loose, so that the quires are no longer attached to each other. In good condition and trimmed only at the foot (and there only slightly).

        Obnovené právo a Zrízení zemské dedicného království Ceského.

      Prague 1627 - Folio. [iii] 238 [v] ll. unsigned and unpaginated. Binding 22 x 30.3cm, text block 13 x 24cm , approx. 32 lines per page. Black ink in a cursive Czech hand, sidenotes in Gothic and addenda in a German Gothic hand. contemp ms. herbal remedies on ffeps. larger headings, sidenotes, and an index, title with elaborate ink flourishes. Some age yellowing, a very good, clean copy, all edges black. In black calf over wooden boards, spine with raised bands, lacking clasps. Ownership inscription of Jana Vacsl. Rozumasky, 1884, on fly. A very rare, elegantly written manuscript in Czech of the entire legal resettlement of Bohemia carried out by Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand II (1578-1637). After his victory at the Battle of White Mountain (1620) over Frederick V, Elector Palatine, Ferdinand determined to eliminate any Protestant threat to his power and consolidate Hapsburg control over Bohemia. The ordinances contained here overturn Rudolph II's 1609 Letter of Majesty that codified religious tolerance, and forbid all confessions except Catholicism and Judaism. They abolish the elective monarchy, destroying the balance of power between estates and consolidating all power in the Emperor, while restoring the once disenfranchised Catholic clergy to the first estate. Legislative power is confined entirely to Ferdinand, and his role in hearing appeals from the courts equally strengthened. The oath of allegiance is revised; once sworn to the commonwealth, it is now to the king alone and the continuing possession of public office, position, and estates dependend on this oath being taken. In addition, patents to the nobility become entirely at the discretion of the King, who in turn sidestepped the tradition of appointing only Bohemian natives and moved the court from Prague to Vienna. The changes introduced here resulted in the reassignment of over one-half of all estates in Bohemia, much of the primarily Protestant nobility was effectively dispossessed, fled as rebels or faced execution. Consistent with this policy of 'Hapsburgisation' these ordinances also elevated the German language to the same official status as Czech, although by 1627 it was already the language spoken at Court. A German edition of these ordinances was printed in 1627 as Verneuerte Landesordnung des Erbkönigreichs Böhaimb, with an incomplete Czech edition including only articles up to F.1 (about 1/3 of the book). No Czech edition was printed until 1888, in Leipzig, edited by the legal historian Hermenegild Jire_k. This complete contemporary Czech translation, matching the German even to the "Index or Ordering of the Titles of the Renewed Land Order" after the text, is a rare and vitally important work in the legal and constitutional history of the Czech people. The Strahov Monastery owns the only other complete copy we have found, although without the additional 6 1/2 pages in German Gothic hand included here, after the index. These pages contain a transcription of a letter dated 11 September 1654 that summarises the contents of the Land Order, addressed to Primate Graf Jaroslav von Bubna, quite possibly for whose use the ms was written. The quality of production indicates a commission for a client of importance. Despite the predominance of German at the highest levels of government, accurate and complete Czech translations would have been necessary to ensure enforcement and consistency between both essential.

        Discours sur les medalles antiques Divisé en quatre parties Esquelles il EDITION ORIGINALE

      à Paris: Chez Sebastien Cramoisy, 1627. Fine. Chez Sebastien Cramoisy, à Paris 1627, In 4 (16,5x24cm), (28) 399pp. (25), relié. - First edition, rare. Brand of printer in the title page. Full Calf blond glossy contemporary. Back to nerves ornate. Part of title in red morocco. Triple fillet border on covers. Roll on turns and interior. Gilt edges. Split bits with various gaps in tail and head. Caps threadbare. Gaps between the nerve and the part of title. Notebooks quite yellowed. Corners bumped. Binding quality with many flaws, but still nice outfit. Very interesting study that stands out in this field through its interest in the subject and value of medals and coins, while the vast majority of studies deal mainly with effigies and figures. It is very precise and erudite on various alloys of lead and tin, and gold, among the Romans in particular, on the use of currencies and the system on which they are based. The approach of the book is much more than most archaeological works on the field, comparing, restoring both from different known that the literature on the field currencies. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, assez rare. Marque de l'imprimeur en page de titre. Reliure en plein veau blond glacé d'époque. Dos à nerfs richement orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Roulette sur les coupes et intérieure. Tranches dorées. Mors fendus avec divers manques en queue et tête. Coiffes élimées. Manques entre le nerf et la pièce de titre. Cahiers assez jaunis. Coins émoussés. Reliure de qualité comportant de nombreux défauts, mais encore de belle tenue. Etude fort intéressante qui se distingue dans ce domaine par son intérêt quant à la matière et à la valeur des médailles et monnaies, alors que la grande majorité des études s'occupent essentiellement des effigies et figures. Elle se fait très précise et érudite sur les divers alliages de plomb et d'étain, et d'or, chez les romains en particulier, sur l'emploi des monnaies et le système sur lequel elles reposent. L'approche de l'ouvrage est donc beaucoup plus archéologique que la plupart des ouvrages sur le domaine, comparant, reconstituant, tant à partir des différentes monnaies connues que de la littérature sur le domaine.

        Autograph letter signed ("AHzFdl"; i.e., Albrecht, Duke of Friedland).

      Grabow, 12. XI. 1627. - Folio. 1 p. With address. To his confidant, the colonel (and later field marshal) Hans Georg von Arnim, dating from the time of their victorious advance on the Danes and the occupation of Mecklenburg, following Wallenstein's creation as Duke of Mecklenburg: "Dieweil der ob[erst] Hausman itzt zum herren reisen thuet als hab ich nochmahls den herren bitten wollen er wolle ein scharfe disciplin halten auf das die länder nicht ruinirt undt per consequens sie undt nacher die arme in desperacion gebracht. Von den steten als von Wismar vor die ubrige 4000 man von Rostock vor die 1000 pferdt von Strallsundt undt Stetin halte der herr die contribucion zusammen auf das wir sie zu dem gen. nothdürften gebrauchen köndten.

[.] Die dänische . in der insel Rügen muß man sich starck fortificiren undt dieweils ein gutts landt ist solches desto sterker belegen [.]" ("As Colonel Hausmann is now travelling to you, I wanted to ask you once more to maintain sharp discipline so as to prevent the countries' ruin, which would throw them and later the poor into desperation. Keep a close grasp on the contributions and taxes from the towns, such as the 4000 men from Rostock and the 1000 horses from Stralsund and Stettin, so that we may use them in case of need. Have the artillery cast in Lübeck or wherever you wish as soon as possible so that the guns may be ready by spring. The island of Rügen must be strongly fortified ."). - Remains of a seal; clipping to edge.
