Also the exposition of the termes of the lawes of this landÉ"

      London: printed by John Haviland. 1627. "Second edition, fourth issue (STC 17947), and according to Kennedy, ""a mere reprint"" of the first issue of 1625; folio, collating *1-*2, A1-2H6 (in 6's), 2I1-2I4, and paged [4] & 760 columns; internally a very good copy, a bit foxed; later full paneled calf, neatly rebacked, maroon morocco label on gilt-paneled spine; very good. A famous polyglot dictionary, noted for its emphasis on etymology. ""There are many fanciful etymologies, such as ""stepmother,"" one who steps into the place of a mother; and also etymologies that have been confirmed by subsequent historical study. A considerable number of long items are devoted to the exposition of law terms. ""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""."" (Starnes & Noyes, p. 248). 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.

      Ex officina Elzeviriana, Lugd[uni] Bat[avorum]. 1627 - Josias Simler (Kappel, 1530-Zurigo, 1576), pastore protestante e teologo, fu autore del primo libro dedicato unicamente alle Alpi, De Alpibus commentarius, e curatore della riedizione della Bibliotheca universalis del Gesner. Dal 1552 professore di esegesi neotestamentaria al Carolinum di Zurigo, dal 1560 occupò la cattedra di teologia. L’autore, aveva risposto inoltre in maniera affermativa alla domanda se la Svizzera fosse uno Stato o meno; la sua riflessione si basò su modelli concettuali analoghi a quelli del federalismo. Nella sua opera De republica Helvetiorum libri duo sostenne che, sebbene la Confederazione fosse priva di un organo esecutivo supremo, uno degli elementi distintivi dello Stato, essa era composta da membri il cui livello di coesione permetteva comunque di parlare di uno Stato svizzero. Nel 1691 Franz Michael Büeler definì la Svizzera uno Stand confederale, ossia come uno Stato, secondo la terminologia di quel tempo. Quando nel 1735 Johann Jacob Leu pubblicò un’edizione rivista dell’opera di Simler, riprese l’idea di Confederale quale Stato federale; la sua presentazione introduttiva della Svizzera costituisce un primo esempio di dottrina federalista.

        De Engelsche Cust van Lezart af tot de C. de Cornwall en 'dEijlanden van de Sorlinges

      c.1627]., [Amsterdam, - Blaeu's rare chart of west Cornwall Engraved chart. Rare chart of west Cornwall from The Lizard to Land End, published in Blaeu's rare pilot 'Zeespiegel Inhoudende Een.'.The 'Zeespeigel' was the second of Blaeu's great pilot guides: the first, 'Het Licht der Zeevaert', was published in various editions and languages between 1608 and 1630. Blaeu's copyright to this work appears to have run out in 1618, and from 1620 Johannes Janssonius was publishing his own counterfeit versions. Blaeu responded to this threat from his rival by publishing the present work in 1623. The new work covered much the same geographical area, i.e. the northern, eastern (the Netherlands to the White Sea) and western (the Netherlands to the Barbary Coast) navigations, however on a much larger scale and with more than twice the number of charts (111 compared to the Zeevaert's 42). Although the new pilot proved hugely successful and would continue to be published for the next 30 years, its practical application aboard ship accounts for its extreme rarity today.

        Tabulae Rudolphinae, quibus astronomicae scientiae temporum longinquitate collapsae restauratio Continetur

      Ulm: Jonas Saur, 1627. - 2 parts in one volume. Folio(13 2/8 x 9 inches). Roman and italic types, double column, printed shoulder notes (without sectional title-page to part 2 and "Sportula genethliacis") (occasional spotting). Engraved allegorical frontispiece of the Temple of Urania with astronomers, by George Celer after Kepler, LARGE ENGRAVED FOLDING MAP OF THE WORLD (27 x 15 2/8 inches to the neat line) (supplied), a few woodcut text diagrams, including a full-page of diagrams on k3v, woodcut initials. Eighteenth-century vellum (some worming). Provenance: probably from the library of Ismaël Boulliau, (1605 – 1694), French astronomer, with his meticulous scholarly marginalia throughout, (occasionally close-cropped affecting the text). First edition, second issue INCLUDING THE CELEBRATED WORLD-MAP "Nova orbis terrarum delineation", which was "conceived by the German cartographer Philip Eckebrecht at the request of his friend Johann Kepler" (Shirley), to be used with his "Tabulae Rudolphinae", engraved at Nuremberg by J.P. Walch and dated 1630 (but perhaps issued later). On his deathbed in 1601, Tycho Brahe urged Kepler to complete his long-projected astronomical tables, to be based on Tycho's mass of astronomical observations and named after their patron Rudolph II. As Brahe's successor in the post of imperial mathematician, Kepler's principal task was the preparation of these improved astronomical tables. He worked on them for years, with frequent interruptions. "In his own eyes Kepler was a speculative physicist and cosmologist; to his imperial employers he was a mathematician charged with completing Tycho's planetary tables. He spent most of his working years with this task hanging as a burden as well as a challenge; ultimately it provided the chief vehicle for the recognition of his astronomical accomplishments" (DSB). When the work was finally ready for the press in 1624, there were further delays, not least the arrival of the Counter-Reformation in Linz, where Kepler was living and had planned to have the work printed. The edition was finally printed in Ulm, under Kepler's close supervision, in an edition of 1000 copies. "In excusing the long delay in publication. [Kepler] mentioned in the preface [page 6] not only the difficulties of obtaining his salary and of the wartime conditions but also 'the novelty of my discoveries and the unexpected transfer of the whole of astronomy from fictitious circles to natural causes, which were most profound to investigate, difficult to explain, and diffiult to calculate, since mine was the first attempt'" (DSB). The greatly improved accuracy of Kepler's tables over previous planetary tables was due not only to his adherence to the Copernican system and his discovery of the laws of planetary motion, but also to the "happy calamity," as he put it, of his initiation into logarithms, through the intermediary of a small book by Benjamin Ursinus (the "Cursus mathematici practice", Cologne 1618) which reproduced Napier's tables of logarithms. Kepler created his own logarithmic tables (published in 1624), and used them for the complex calculations required to determine planetary orbits. The superiority of his tables "constituted a strong endorsement of the Copernican system, and insured the tables' dominance in the field of astronomy throughout the seventeenth century" (Norman). Annotated throughout, probably by an astronomer and mathematician, probably the French astronomer Ismael Boulliau, contemporary and friend of other probably more celebrated astronomers Pierre Gassendi, Christiaan Huygens, Marin Mersenne, and Blaise Pascal, and an active supporter of Galileo Galilei and Nicolaus Copernicus. He is best remembered for his "Astronomia philolaica", published in 1645, in which he supports Kepler's hypothesis that the planets travel in elliptical orbits around the Sun, but argued against the physical theory the latter had proposed to explain them, proposing instead an inverse square law for gravitation, long befo [Attributes: First Edition]

        Religion and Alegiance in Two Sermons Preached Before the Kings Majestie: The One on the Fourth of Jule, Anno 1627. At Oatlands. The Other on the 19 of July the Same Yeare, At Alderton.

      Printed By I.H. For Richard Badger, London 1627 - [2], 33pp, [1], 56pp. Nineteenth-century morocco backed marbled boards. Rubbed, with loss to head of spine and corners. Soiling/spotting to title and final leaf. Original stab-holes to gutter margin. Nineteenth-century institutional blind-stamp to title, A2 and final leaf. Roger Maynwaring (1589/90-1653), bishop of St. Davids. Following a promising academic career at All Souls, Maynwaring, patronage ensured a perpetual curacy at St Katherines Cree, Aldates in the City of London, and other clerical positions in the capital before proceeding BD and DD in 1625. Appointed a royal chaplain in the same year, his loyalty was proven beyond doubt in the wake of protest at Charles I's imposition of forced loans in 1626/7 when he preached two sermons especially supportive of absolute divine right. In promoting the rights of a King above the rule of common or statute law, and advocating absolute obedience to the King's rule in the particular circumstances of forced loans rather than in a general sense, his thought was verging on contemporary political extremism. Charles, in delight at his young chaplain's words, ordered the publication of both - hence the inclusion of 'By His Majesties Special Command' on the title - against the better judgement of Laud. Public and parliamentary reaction ensued: Maynwaring and his works were investigated by a committee on religion in 1628, he was charged in the strongest terms with insulting parliament, fined, imprisoned, disbarred from holding ecclesiastical office, the reprinting of this work banned, and preparations made for its mass burning in the weeks before a royal pardon was issued. In the contentious days of the following decade, the significant theories espoused in this present work and considered so extreme in the 1620s, entered into the popular royalist discourse and were included in Filmer's (unpublished) constitutional work Patriarcha. Published in two settings - this edition with  B4 catchword 'preames' is not held at the British Library, and is particularly scarce outside of the UK, with ESTC locating only four copies at three locations.

The colouring, which has some age but is not original, is very attractive. A fine example with English text on verso. John Speed's justly renowned map of the county from the second edition of his great early 17th century atlas of the British Isles. His survey was based on the earlier work of Philip Symonson with the addition of his own embellishments, and separate plans of Canterbury and Rochester. One of the most attractive and decorative maps of Kent. KENT MAPS KENT

        A Collection of English Proverbs. Digested into a convenient Method for the speedy finding any one upon occasion; with Short Annotations, Whereunto are added Local Proverbs with the Explications, Old Proverbial Rhythmes, Less known of Exotick Proverbial Sentences, and Scottish Proverbs. The Second Edition Enlarged by the Addition of many hundred English, and an Appendix of Hebrew Proverbs, with Annotations and Parallels. Cambridge: John Hayes for W. Morden, 1678.

      - The great naturalist John Ray (1627-1704) brought the same documentary and classificatory dedication to his proverb-collecting as he did to his scientific work. He published an earlier version of this collection anonymously in 1670. Benjamin Franklin used many of these maxims without acknowledgement (though in fairness he claimed no originality for them) in Poor Richard's Almanac. The Historical Magazine printed a parallel list, showing the closeness of some of Franklin's borrowings from this second edition of Ray's Proverbs, in its January 1860 issue. 'It is characteristic of Ray's versatile mind that one of his most important books should be entirely unconnected with botany or natural history with which his name is associated' (Keynes). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, [viii], 414, [2] pp., eighteenth-century panelled calf, spine gilt in compartments with red morocco lettering piece, title-page printed in red and black, small portion of fore-margin of B5 torn away with loss of a few letters, tear in DD4 (paper flaw) with minor loss, a fine copy from the Library of the Earls of Macclesfield, with the Sapere Aude armorial bookplate and crests blindstamped to the first four leaves.

        Memoravel Relacam da perda da Nao Conceicam Que os Turcos queymarao a vista da barra de Lisboa; varios successos das pessoas, que nella cativarao

      1627 - Turkish Privateering against Portugal, the destruction of the Conceicam; diamonds thrown over board. 1627 [later impression]. Lisbon. Offincina de Antonio Alvares. In 8vo (194 mm x 140 mm). 3 ff. + 100 + 1 ff. Mid twentieth-century quarter vellum over decorated boards, vertical author, title and date in manuscript on spine. A very good copy. Second edition. This is the counterfeit editon. There are two issues, with the title pages in different settings of type. The present variant is distinguishable by the author's name appearing correctly on the title page, along with several other variations in wording and spelling. In the other variant, his name appears as "Joam Tavares Mascarenhas". The rest of the leaves appear identical, with the exception of a single "issue point" discovered on p. 1: in the present variant on the third line of the beginning of the main text the date "1621" is given correctly, while in the other variant it is given as "621". There may very well be other minor variants, as yet undiscovered. The work was included in Gomes de Brito’s “Historia Tragico-Maritima em que se escrevem chronologicamente os Naufragios que tiverao as Naos de Portugal, depois que se poz em exercicio a Navegacao da India”, according to Maggs this was not included in every copy and was only included in one copy they had “The six extra accounts were probably issued as separate reprints at different times by Gomes de Brito. As they all bear the imprints of the original editions, and the old dates of publication, they are apt to be mistaken for them”. The title bears the same imprint as the true first edition (1627), however, the physical description doesn’t match (the first edition collating [4] + 48 ff.). Some libraries and public institutions, to date, catalogue it as the first, unaware of the 18th century reprints. Nothing is known of the author, João Carvalho Mascarenhas, except what he mentions in the text of this work. Captured aboard the Conceição in 1621 on the return voyage from India, he spent 6 years in Algiers. He says he was thirty-eight years of age in 1627; that he had travelled on foot along the coast of Brazil from Rio Grande do Norte to Bahia; that he had served on the coast of East Africa, in the Persian Gulf, and on the West Coast of India from Diu to Cape Comorim. He had personally handed dispatches from King Philip to the Shah of Persia, and had drunk of the waters of the rivers Ganges, Tigris, and Eufrates, besides having visited Arabia Felix and Arabia Deserta. Boxer speculates that it is possible he is the same João Carvalho Mascarenhas who was excluded from the captaincy of Massangano during the time that Dom Manuel Pereira Coutinho was Governor of Angola (1630–1634), and if this was so, he was still alive in 1656. It narrates the loss of the ship Conceicam (Portuguese) to Turkish corsairs of Algeria in sight of Lisbon, the naval engagement occurred between both fleets, what happened to the booty – as chapter X, on how the diamonds were thrown off board. It is written by Mascarenhas, who claims being a captive of the Turks. The privateering in the coasts of Spain and Portugal was not an isolated event; it was in fact a continuous and consistent attack on the fleets coming from the Indies –West and East- through the way of the Antilles mostly, bringing riches, precious stones, spices and such to Spain –at the time, the Crowns of Portugal and Spain were still united, under the rule of the King of Spain. The corsairs, well-aware of the situation, attacked the Conceicam, destroyed it and burned it, in the eyes of the Portuguese. As response, the Kings of Spain would soon begin incentivizing privateering activities from his vassals. Provenance: engraved armorial bookplate of Dom Diogo de Bragança (Lafões) (Lisbon, 1930-Lisbon, 2012) was an accomplished equestrian, author of books on dressage, and a dedicated bibliophile whose collection focused on books about horses and horsemanship, plus works on Portuguese hist [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Fulton 22and pp. 9ff, 110a, and pp. 73-74; cf. DSB I, pp. 377-379. Interesting convolute of these three very rare Latin translations of three major works by Robert Boyle (1627-1691), the best-known English scientist of his day and the greatest experimental scientist of the mid-seventeenth century. Although Boyle's first scientific interest was chemistry, this is the author's first published scientific work - on pneumatics -, the one that established his fame. The work is also known as the Spring and weight of the air. With a translation of A defence of the doctrine touching the spring and weight of the air (first published together with the 2nd edition of the New experiments in London, 1662, in which he developed this last discovery into a quantitative relationship: that volume varies inversely with pressure, rightly called Boyle's law).Book block almost loose.

        [A doctorate in law from the University of Padua, granted under the auspices of the Doge of Venice, Aloysius Mocenigo II]. [Incipit:] In Christi nomine amen[.] Anno reparatæ salutis millesimo septingentesimo secundo, Ducatus . . . Aloysii Mocenico . . . Padua, 25 February 1702. 24.5×18.5 cm. Manuscript authentication of the award of a doctorate in law, written in black ink and gold on sheepskin parchment, with the recipient's full-page coat of arms in red, blue, black, silver and gold, that page and the facing opening page of text with wide and elaborate borders in 5 colours plus black and gold, their decorations including a peacock, eagle, rampant lion holding a hat, fruits and flowers; the narrower floral borders of the remaining 3 pages in red and gold. Contemporary richly gold-tooled tanned goatskin in a panel design. Attached by braided cords is a flat metal canister covered with matching gold-tooled goatskin, containing the red wax seal of the University (5.5 cm diameter); metal corner pieces on the 4 fore-edge corners.

      For the binding: cf. British Library Database (shelfmark Davies875) (similar design). An elaborately decorated manuscript serving as authentication of the granting of a doctorate in law by the University of Padua to Josephus Storch of Merano (Meran) in South Tyrol, son of Franciscus Storch. It survives in its original, richly gold-tooled binding, with the large seal of the University ("SIGILLVM VNIVERSITATIS IVRISTARVM PADVA 1627") attached by a braided cord. Since Padua fell under the authority of the Venetian Republic at this date, the doctorate was awarded under the auspices of the Doge of Venice. It further names various officials of the University as well as professors of Roman law, canon law and criminal law.The binding is slightly rubbed, mainly near the edges, outside the gold tooling. There is a crack in the wax seal, and the originally red cord attaching it has faded to light brown, except the part closed inside the manuscript. In good condition, with the decorations and gold lettering well preserved.

        Lucans Pharsalia: or The Civil-Wars of Rome, Between Pompey the great and Julius Caesar / A Continuation of Lucans Historicall Poem till the Death of Julius Caesar

      Translation by Thomas May. Two volumes. 24mo. Rebound in half black calf with marbled paper over boards, gilt, compartments. (10pp), 261pp; (8pp), 122pp. All edges gilt. Very good. Tight and quite handsome. Frontispiece (Volume I), Volume II engraved title page, marbled endpapers. Miniscule "Tout Binder" inkstamped on inner flyleaf of each volume. Tight and handsome pair of the fourth enlarged and corrected edition of this 1627 work. A poem by May's friend Ben Johnson ("To my chosen Friend, The learned Translator of Lucan, Thomas May, Esquire") follows the brief biography of Lucan that opens the first volume. Bookplate of noted collector William S. Stone on the front flyleaf of each volume and, more interesting, the bookplate of H. Buxton Forman graces each front pastedown -- likely a printed reproduction of Forman's engraved bookplate, added by Anderson Galleries when they auctioned off Forman's books in April 1920. Forman (1842-1917) was an English bibliographer of Keats and Shelley and antiquarian bookseller who entered the ranks of book collecting infamy when he partnered with notorious collector Thomas J. Wise in creating phony literary pamphlets featuring previously-unknown first appearances of poems by many noted poets of the day, which were then sold for substantial sums; their large-scale fraud wouldn't be widely known until Graham Pollard and John Carter's 1934 "An Enquiry into the Nature of Certain Nineteenth Century Pamphlets" spelled it all out in detail. Forman's bookplate features a profile image of a full-bearded young Forman in his study surrounded by books and a bust of Shelley, apparently transcribing a text with quill pen. An inner flyleaf in each volume bears Forman's pencilled initials and the date "13-10-90"; a neatly, boldly pencilled note on the verso of this leaf in Volume I, likely in his hand, notes: "Fourth Edition enlarged by the author. A very popular work highly praised by Ben Johnson. This edition appeared the year of his death, which was caused by an undue fondness for conviviality. Marvell penned the following words to him. 'As one put drink into the packet boat, John [sic] May was hurried hence and did not know't.'" May (1595-1650) was an English poet, playwright and parliamentarian historian, and Lucan (39-65 A.D.) was a Spanish-born Roman poet and one-time Nero favorite who got on the emperor's bad side and ended up committing suicide, his epic poem "Pharsalia" being his sole surviving work. While it's not known for painstaking historical accuracy, it is highly regarded for its exciting conveyance of the horrors of civil war. A beautiful and quite scarce pair in handsome late 19th century bindings.

        Tabulae Rudolphinae, quibus astronomicae scientiae, temporum longinquitate collapsae restauratio continentur.

      Ulm: Jonas Saur 1627 - Ulm: Jonas Saur, 1627. 4 parts in one, folio (326 x 224 mm). Roman and Italic types, double column, printed shoulder notes. Engraved allegorical frontispiece of the Temple of Urania with astronomers, by George Celer after Kepler, LARGE ENGRAVED FOLDING MAP OF THE WORLD (435 x 710 mm), a few woodcut text diagrams, including a full-page of diagrams on k3v, woodcut initials, large woodcut device on part 2 section title. With the 4-leaves "Sportula genethliacis missa" (q4) dated 1629, inserted before the tabulae. Cased binding. FIRST EDITION, INCLUDING THE VERY RARE WORLD-MAP Nova orbis terrarum delineatio, "conceived by the German cartographer Philip Eckebrecht at the request of his friend Johann Kepler" (Shirley), to be used with his Tabulae Rudolphinae, engraved at Nuremberg by J.P. Walch and dated 1630 (but perhaps issued later), and Kepler's 4-leaf supplement of directions (signed q4), "Sportula genethliacis missa" (printed in Sagan, Prussia, 1629). It does not include the appendix by Jacob Bartsch found in a few copies. The first quire is found here in its third issue. The Rudolphine Tables is a monumental work in which the great astronomer Kepler provided the data by which the positions of the planets could be computed. It was the first book to require the use of logarithms which had recently been invented by John Napier. Kepler's tables were about 30 times better than any previous ones and were the primary source of recognition for his work in astronomy in the decades following their publication. He used the tables to predict a transit of Mercury which was observed by Pierre Gassendi in 1631. This successful observation added weight to the case for Copernicanism.
