        Le blason des armoiries. (with) L' estat et comportement des armes. (with) Le tableau des armoiries de France.

      chez Rolet Boutonne, au palais, a l'entree de la petite Galerie des prisonniers 1628 - Folio. Three vols in one pp. 1) pp. [xii], 197, [iii]. 2) pp. [iv], 95, [i]. 3) pp. [viii], 70, [ii]. Roman letter. First two titles in red and black, large engraved printer’s device on each, of two angels supporting the arms of Louis XIII, signed Picart on first, vol 1 with very numerous woodcut and engraved arms, vol two with woodcut arms and genealogical tables, small woodcut diagrams in text of third, all with fine floriated initials and head and tail-pieces. Light age yellowing, some leaves slightly browned, minor, light, marginal water-stains in places. Very good, clean, well margined copies, in contemporary limp vellum, slightly soiled, nibbled at edges in places, small stab hole in upper cover, upper edge a bit chewed. An excellent collection of three of the most important French works on heraldry, covering, between them all aspects of that art or science, all corrected and augmented and beautifully illustrated and printed. The first work by Bara concerns the history and tradition of heraldry starting with a general description of the forms in heraldry, with descriptions of the colours and form of arms and the use, meaning and history of the various symbols. The second part includes descriptions of the arms of a whole host of historical and mythical individuals, including Prester John, Alexander the Great, Hercules, and the arms of the Knights of the Round table, who were a significant element in medieval heraldry. (The identification of individuals from the Arthurian legends with particular arms is evidenced from as early as the 12th century, by the 15th century some 200 such arms had been attributed.) He also includes the arms of figures from the Old Testament, Greek and Roman mythology. The work ends with descriptions of the arms of the major houses of Europe and the high nobility of France. Scohier’s work, regarded as one of the best French heraldic treatises, also starts with a general description of the form of arms. It then elaborates a method of compiling genealogies and describes how arms are passed from generation to generation, with significant sections on the rights and laws of the wearing of arms. The final work by Moreau is prefaced by an interesting letter addressed to “La Noblesse Francoise” describing the importance of arms and their heritage to the nobility and royalty. In it describes succinctly the purpose of this work, “de rechercher les raisons des Armoiries tant principals, & substantielles, que parergues, & accessoires, comme de leurs Tymbres, Ordres, & Suports, & puis rebroussant iusqu’a leur premiere origine, tascher de desfricher, & descouvrir l’antiquite des plus grandes, & illustres.”. As stated he researches the first origins of the use of arms and discusses in length the meaning of each major aspect of the design of arms and their first use, their original significance and modern interpretation. It is probable that the three works were put together by the publisher or a contemporary bookseller as they are complementary in design and use and represent the periods best works on heraldry. Brunet states that they are sometimes found together in this form. (Brunet, Bara I 642). 1) BM STC Fr. C17th B192. Brunet, I 642. Graesse I 287. 2) BM STC Fr. C17th S 475. Brunet V 234.

        Official Document Signed

      County of Bedford, 1628. unbound. 1 page, 16 x 18.5 inches (plus ribbons), County of Bedford, June 4, 1628 -- a marriage agreement between his daughter Mary Cromwell and Edward Rolt of Pertenhall in Bedfordshire. Signed by all three across the sheaths that house the hanging ribbons and seals. Note: Sir Oliver's privy seal still remains attached to its mounting with the embossed lion (walking and facing left) visible to the naked eye. All three signatures are light from being exposed to sunlight but can be seen without the use of magnification. The document itself is boldly written as the day it was created almost 400 years ago. An interesting piece by the uncle and Godfather of, arguably, one of the most important figures in English history. Very good condition. English politician and attorney to Queen Anne who sat in the House of Commons at various times between 1589 and 1625. He was the uncle and Godfather of Oliver Cromwell, general and Lord Protector of England.

It should also be regarded as “the first record of a complete biological investigation, giving a clear and accurate description of the methods employed to recognise the laws governing an important vital process, a knowledge of which had till then been befogged by mistaken conceptions...” (H.P.

C A B (Cherubinus Alberti Burgensis) u. dat. 1628 "Cum Privilegio summi Pontificis.". 23 x 16,3 cm. - Bis auf den Rand beschnitten und mit altem Papier hinterlegt, minimal gebräunt, mit kl. WZ; klarer, kräftiger und gleichmäßiger Druck. - s. National Gallery of Washington, Ailsa Mellon Bruce Fund, 1972.65.3 - Cherubino Alberti: Sansepolcro 1553 - 1615 Rom. Alberti zählt zu den herausragenden Graphik-Künstlern des Manierismus und des Frühbarock. Schon in jungen Jahren beschäftigte er sich mit der Technik des Kupferstiches, vermutlich gelernt bei dem Niederländer Cornelis Cort, der u.a. für Tizian Reproduktionen anfertigte. Die meiste Zeit seines Lebens arbeitete er aber in Rom, wo er zum Direktor des Akademie S. Luca ernannt wurde. Er schuf Kupferstichreproduktionen nach Michelangelo, Raffael, Andrea del Sarto und anderen. Dazu kreierte er eigene Motive und schuf Portraitstiche, u.a von Papst Gregor XII. Im Alter versuchte er sich auch selber in der Malerei, speziell als Freskant. Seine Werke sind z. B. im Quirinalspalast oder in der Sala Clementina des Vatikans zu sehen. Einige Werke wurden nach seinem Tod erneut aufgelegt, so wie das vorliegende Blatt.

        STATISTA REGNANTE

      LIONE, 1628. In 16. Dim. 15x9 cm. Pp. 225. Edizione originale del 1628 di questa nota opera politica scritta da Valeriano Castiglione (1593-1663) appartenente all'antico casato dei Castiglioni, letterato ed accademico. L'opera è un trattato di precetti politici importantissimo per il pensiero politico del seicento. Fu questo saggio a dare maggiore fama all'autore, da allora considerato il primo trattatista politico del suo tempo. Il saggio aveva lo scopo di insegnare ai principi cattolici la ragion di stato cristiana contro le cattive ragioni di Stato di Machiavelli e Bodin. Il modello dello statista per Castiglione era rappresentato da Emanuele I di Savoia, a tal punto che i contemporanei lo accusarono di aver fatto da prestanome per la stesura dell'opera e che in realtà l'autore fosse proprio il Savoia. L'opera si articola in una serie di cinquanta massime che vengono esposte nell'opera, tra le quali: il principe sia considerato nel maritarsi, nel lasciarsi dominare dalle donne, conservi al sua reputazione, non sia crudele, castighi i delitti, non offenda i sudditi, non permetta che il fisco sia rigoroso, sia benefico verso i poveri, si avvertito circa le insidie del veleno, distrugga i fuoriusciti, bandisca i duelli, permetta ai sudditi gli spettacoli ecc... Bella xilografia rappresentante il giglio fiorentino al frontespizio. Collazionato e risultato completo. Alto valore. Copertina in mezza pergamena con titolo manoscritto al dorso in discrete condizioni generali con lievi usure ai margini e dorso; pergamena applicata su cartoncino ottocentesco. Legatura in buone condizioni. All'interno le pagine si presentano in buone condizioni con fioriture e bruniture. Original edition of 1628 of this famous political work written by Valeriano Castiglione (1593-1663) belonging to ancient family of Castiglioni, letterate and academical. The work is a treaty of political precepts, very important for the political thought of XVII century. This essay gave more fortune to the author, from that moment he was considered the first political treaty writer of his time. The essay had the aim to teach to catholical princes the christian state reason against the bad reasons of state told by Machiavelli and Bodin. The model of the statist for Castiglione was represented by Emanuele I di Savoia, so much that contemporary historians stated that the same Savoia who wrote the book under the name of Castiglione. The work articulates in a series of fifty precepts esposed in the work among them: the prince must be careful in marriage himself, in domination of women, preserve his reputation, he must not be cruel, be good towards poor people etc... Beautiful woodcut representin a lily in the title page. Collationed and complete. High value Half parchment cover with manuscripted title in the spine in fair general conditions slightly worn in the edges and spine; parchment applied on carton cover of the XIX century.

        Salomons Recantation and Repentance: or, The Booke of Ecclesiastes briefly and fully explained.

      London, John Haviland, for John Bartlet 1628. (8) 175 p. Rebound half Leather with ribbed back and decorated with stamps, 4° (some pages are fixed at the lower margins because of wormholes, at some places affecting the text. William Pemble c.1592-1623, was a puritan divine, born as a son of a clergyman. His father was poor, and his education was provided for by John Barker. After his graduation he removed to Magdalen Hall, where he became reader and tutor. He proceeded M.A. on 9 June 1618, took orders, and was made divinity reader of Magdalen Hall, a post which he filled with great distinction, being an able exponent of Calvinism, and famous as a preacher. He was loyal to the Anglican church, though anxious that the terms of conformity should be made easier to his party. His aquirements in various branches of learning were very remarkable. It would seem that his labours and studies exhausted his strenght and shortened his days. Pemble's works were all posthumous, edited and published by his friends.).

Norman 381 (1st) "the classic study on depression". Osler 4621 "A great medical treatise". Heirs of Hippocrates 252 (2nd) <br><br> Burton&#39;s book consists mostly of a collection of opinions of a multitude of writers, grouped under quaint and old-fashioned divisions; in a solemn tone Burton endeavoured to prove indisputable facts by weighty quotations. The subjects discussed and determined by Burton ranged from the doctrines of religion to military discipline, from inland navigation to the morality of dancing-schools. <br> On its surface, the book is presented as a medical textbook in which Burton applies his vast and varied learning, in the scholastic manner, to the subject of melancholia (which includes what is now termed clinical depression). Though presented as a medical text, The Anatomy of Melancholy is as much a sui generis work of literature as it is a scientific or philosophical text, and Burton addresses far more than his stated subject. In fact, the Anatomy uses melancholy as the lens through which all human emotion and thought may be scrutinized, and virtually the entire contents of a 17th-century library are marshaled into service of this goal. It is encyclopedic in its range and reference. <br> In his satirical preface to the reader, Burton&#39;s persona Democritus Junior explains, "I write of melancholy by being busy to avoid melancholy." This is characteristic of the author&#39;s style, which often supersedes the book&#39;s strengths as a medical text or historical document as its main source of appeal to admirers. Both satirical and serious in tone, the Anatomy is "vitalized by (Burton&#39;s) pervading humour", and Burton&#39;s digressive and inclusive style, often verging on a stream of consciousness, consistently informs and animates the text.[citation needed] In addition to the author&#39;s techniques, the Anatomy&#39;s vast breadth â&#128;&#147; addressing topics such as digestion, goblins, the geography of America, and others â&#128;&#147; make it a valuable contribution to multiple research disciplines.

        Plate from 'Academie de l'Espee'

      [Leiden: B. & A. Elzevir 1628 - 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. Copper engraving by Johann Gelle. Very good condition apart from some mild creasing.
