        La Flora. Etching by Alfonso Parigi the Younger

      1628 - 188 x 286 mm. With "Avviso di Mercurio a Berecintia dea della Terra, et alle Ninfe de Campi" printed below image. Slightly worn and browned; central vertical crease flattened; trimmed; hinged at upper corners of verso. "La Flora, o vero Il natal de' fiori (Flora, or The Birth of Flowers) is an opera in a prologue and five acts composed by Marco da Gagliano and Jacopo Peri to a libretto by Andrea Salvadori. It was first performed on 14 October 1628 at the Teatro Mediceo in Florence to celebrate the marriage of Margherita de' Medici and Odoardo Farnese, Duke of Parma. Based on the story of Chloris and Zephyrus in Book V of Ovid's Fasti, Salvadori's libretto contains many allegorical references to the transfer of political power, the beauty of Tuscany, and the strength of the Medici dynasty. The score of La Flora is one of only two still in existence out of Gagliano's 14 published stage works. Several of its arias are still performed as concert pieces." Wikipedia"As maestro di cappella for nearly 35 years to the grand duke of Tuscany and of Florence Cathedral (S Maria del Fiore), [Gagliano] was one of the most important Italian musicians of the period. His Dafne (1608) is a milestone in the early history of opera, and his secular madrigals and monodies and many sacred works in various genres, though now little known, were much acclaimed in the first half of the 17th century." Edward Strainchamps in Grove Music Online.Alfonso Parigi the Younger (1606-1656 was a noted Italian architect and engraver.

      Odon [Spain]: No publisher/printer Folio (32 cm; 12.5"). [6] ff.. 1628 In 1628 the Conde de Chinchon had just finished serving as the Treasurer General of the Consejo de Aragon and was preparing to travel to Peru to be the viceroy and captain general of that New World region. He served in that role from 1629 to 1639. The Count had extensive land, business, and political matters that had to be overseen while he was in Southern Hemisphere, and in this printed form => specifically printed for him he gives his power of attorney to Jose de Carvajal Agurto, "my secretary"; Juan de Olabarria, "my accountant"; and Juan de Alderete. They are empowered to administer his estates, collect rents, and to do "other diverse things." Considerable detail is given concerning the extent of their power, including appearing in his stead before courts and councils, dealing with lawyers, agents, and the clergy, and much more. => Never before have we seen a power of attorney printed specifically for a newly appointed viceroy and specifically stating that he needs it because he is to be a viceroy in the New World. Signed by several witnesses and with the Count's paraph. Bound in half cordovan morocco with marbled paper sides. Light waterstaining at edges and along center fold.

        Ovid's Metamorphosis, Englished by G.S.

      London: Printed by Robert Young, 1628. First complete twelvemo edition of George Sandys' English translation of Ovid's Metamorphosis, the great Roman epic of transformation, pirated from the authorized 1626 folio edition. While not the earliest English translator of Ovid, Sandys was one of the most influential, his heroic couplets admired by Milton, Dryden, and Pope: "soule-lesse Phaeton, with blazing haire / Shot head-long through a long descent of Aire; / As when a falling starre glides through the skie, / Or seemes to fall to the deceived eye." Sandys had already translated the first five books of the Metamorphosis when he sailed to the New World as treasurer of the fledgling Virginia Company. He completed the next two books on the sea and the remainder in Virginia, making his Ovid the first major literary translation produced in the American colonies. His work on the Metamorphosis was punctuated by clashes with Native Americans, including one fight that left three hundred colonists dead; in his dedication to the poem, Sandys notes that "Warres and Tumults [brought] it to light in stead of the Muses." Upon Sandys's return, Charles I granted him the exclusive privilege to print his translation, which appeared in a handsome folio edition in 1626. The first five books, however, had already been registered, and this narrower right to copy was inherited by Robert Young. In 1628, Young published this unauthorized twelvemo edition of the complete Metamorphosis, in spite of the patent granted to Sandys, complete with an amusingly crude woodcut reproduction of the folio's engraved title page. Sandys successfully sued to suppress this pirated edition. STC 18965. A curiosity of seventeenth-century English printing, and a near-fine copy of a major translation. Twelvemo, full contemporary calf, skillfully rebacked with original spine laid down, raised bands, compartments ruled and lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers, all edges stained red, red silk ribbon marker. Woodcut title page, editor's note and index at rear. Minor chipping to spine ends, some toning and occasional spotting to text block, a few pages trimmed close. Bookseller notations in pencil to first fly leaf; early ink ownership inscriptions to second fly leaf, dedication page, and verso of final page.

        Annotationes in praecipua ac difficiliora sacrae scripturae loca.

      Duaci [Douai]: Apud Gerardum Patté, sub signo missalis aurei Folio in 6's (36 cm, 14.2"). [3] ff. (of 4, lacking title-leaf), 684 pp., [10] ff.. 1628 Second edition" (but really third?) of commentary on the O.T. and N.T. by Willem Hessels van Est (Gulielmus Estius, 1542–1613), who studied classics at Utrecht and religion at Louvain, and was Chancellor at the University of Douai from 1595 until his death. Famous especially for exegetical writings, as herein, "Estius's reputation became so great among later scholars that the saying . . . 'Estius on the Epistles' became proverbial." (NCE) This edition was edited by Gaspard Dubois (Nemius, 1587–1667), whose dedication to Francis van der Burch, Archbishop of Cambrai, features his => engraved arms as a headpiece. First published in 1617, the text is in Latin printed in roman and italic, double-column, framed on each page by a double-ruled border, with elaborate woodcut initials and head- and tailpieces, many incorporating the Jesuit "IHS" and one of these => censored by an 18th-century hand. (Two large leaves are drawn in ink over objectionable putti parts!) The title-page, wanting in this copy, has been transcribed by the same(?) early hand in ink on the front fly-leaf recto and verso, and the imprint information is confirmed by the colophon on the last page, which features the woodcut printer's device and the date in roman numerals. Provenance: An inscription on the front fly-leaf verso gives three dates, 1682–1739, and the names Fido Springhere and Philippus Coisne(?); there is a second ex-libris inscription with the name Baptista Baelde(?) at top of dedication leaf; and a final inscription, "Fido Springhere 1686" on verso of last leaf, above colophon. Scarce: This edition => not in NUC Pre-1956, and WorldCat finds just three U.S. copies. Contemporary calf with an elaborate cartouche gilt at the center of each cover, rebacked to style with gilt-ruled raised bands and green gilt-lettered spine label; extremities repaired and new endpapers. Ex-library: old oval stamp on first page of dedication and accession number on p. 1 of text. Lacks title-leaf; various markings on verso of front endpaper; final two quires lightly creased; small marginal hole from natural paper flaw on three leaves; a few spots and smudges and one small tear, also from natural flaw. With occasional => underlining and marginalia in Latin, seemingly by the same hand that transcribed the title and inscribed the fly-leaf.

        The Book of Common Prayer bound dos-a-dos with The New Testament [Early Embroidered Binding]

      Bonham Norton and John Bill / The Cambridge Univesity Printers, London and Cambridge 1628 - 12mo. The Common Prayer is published 1629 by Norton and Bill. The New Testament is 1628 by "the printers to the Universite" in Cambridge. The binding is embroidered with silver thread and coloured silk threads and shows foliage, flowers and birds. The edges are all gilt and stamped with a decorative pattern. The book does have some faults. One of the shared hinges is holding but a little weak. The edges and corners of the binding are somewhat worn and rubbed. Both title pages are quite chipped at the edges. There is a bit of a gap in the binding between the A and B section of The New Testament and so the A section has stood a little bit proud for a while and been a little worn at the edges. A delightful and scarce survival. Pictures of this item not already displayed here available upon request. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Plate from 'Academie de l'Espee'

      [Leiden: B. & A. Elzevir, 1628. Copper engraving by 'Rob. beaudoux'. Very good condition apart from some mild rippling. A fine print from the most sumptuous book on fencing ever produced, which combines a strong design sense with beauty and historical importance, executed by one of the greatest engravers of the day. The image illustrates Thibault's theories of successful fencing using movement and mathematical principles. Thibault's work was produced during a period when the Italian rapier (or epee) held sway. "The Italians discovered the effectiveness of the dexterous use of the point rather than the edge of the sword. By the end of the 16th century, their lighter weapon...and simple, nimble, and controlled fencing style, emphasizing skill and speed rather than force, spread throughout Europe. Most of the wrestling tricks [used in earlier disciplines] were abandoned, the lunge was discovered, and fencing became established as an art" ( Encyclopaedia Britannica ). The present image marks the zenith of the use of the epee in Europe. "In the latter half of the 17th century, the sword and swordsmanship changed dramatically with a change in gentleman's dress. In France the court of Louis XIV set the fashion of silk stockings, breeches, and brocaded coats...As the long trailing rapier was unsuited to this form of dress, fashion decreed the wearing of a light, short court sword. The French style set in throughout Europe as the Italian had done earlier" (op. cit.). Cf. Vigeant p. 125; cf. Willems 302.
