Dieu, Ludovicus de
Leiden Elzevier, 1628. First edition 4to, pp.[xvi], 423, title printed in red and black, Hebrew, Chaldean and Syriac characters in text. A very good copy bound in recent half calf. Ludovicus de Dieu, 1590-1642, studied theology and Oriental languages (Hebrew, Syriac, Ethiopic, and Arabic) in Leiden with Thomas Erpenius and Jacob Golius. He was renowned for his interpretations of biblical texts based on a wide and profound linguistic knowledge. In this comparative grammar of a number of Semitic languages he dealt more with Syriac than Aramaic, as the latter had already been fully treated.

Pemble, William
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.) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Hugone, Hermanno
Henrici Aertssenii (Printer), Antwerp, 1628. Contemporary cream vellum over cardbord; black lettering on spine. Sewn binding. 457 pp. with bw engravings and woodcuts peppered throughout. Hermanno Hugone (Herman Hugo) was a Jesuit priest, writer and millitary chaplain, born in Brussels in May 1588. Hugo studied philosophy and theology at the University of Louvain, and his spiritual emblem book, Pia Desideria, was the most popular religious emblem book of the 17th century. It went through 42 Latin editions and several translations up to the 18th century. The Pia Desideria first was printed in 1624. Hugo died of the plague in September 1629 at Rheinsberg. Emblem books were popular in 16th- and 17th-century Europe. They were small books containing collections of allegorical illustrations, accompanied by explanatory text, typicallly in the form of poetry or a morality narrative. The black/white original engravings were created by Christopher van Sichem. Very clear, detailed illustrations. The volume consists of three books: Liber Primus - Gemitus Animae Poenitentis (The Groans of the Penitent); Liber Secundus - Desideria Animae Sanctae (The Desire of the Holy); and Liber Tertius - Suspiria Animae Amantis (Sighs of Lovers). Dedicated to Pope Urban VIII. Text in Latin. Some general wear to end papers and pre-title pages. Inside hinges loosening, but everything is solid and intact. Soiling to vellum. Text block very clean, unmarked, and tight. Bookplate of Arthur C. Newsum (English) pasted inside back cover (upside down). Beautiful bookplate. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Nichols, Philip
London, 1628. Small quarto. Modern tooled calf in contemporary style by Middleton, leather label. Titlepage in expert facsimile. Some dust soiling and toning. Else very good. The second edition, after the first of 1626, of this account of Francis Drake's highly successful raid against the Spanish in Panama in 1572-73, one of his early Caribbean raids of plunder and harassment. Sabin states of this edition: "It differs from that of 1626 in having had the advantage of the incorporation of the errata of the latter date under the personal superintendence of the nephew of the great voyager. The last four leaves are larger than the rest of the book." The expedition of fifty-two Englishmen attempted to seize the Nombre de Dios but were repulsed when Drake was wounded in the shoulder. After many reversals and hardships the British managed to waylay an entire pack train of Peruvian silver, bringing home a fortune. Drake's bold move was approved by Queen Elizabeth, who shared in the plunder, but the politics of his raid on Spain during a period of ostensible peace made it necessary for him to disappear to Ireland for several years after the event. Besides his success in plunder, on this expedition Drake became the first Englishman to see the Pacific Ocean. The book was originally written in a manuscript account of the expedition given to Queen Elizabeth on New Year's Day 1593. In his letter of presentation which serves as the introduction to the book, Drake suggests that, while it is pleasant to think of past victories, he would rather be undertaking new employment of the same sort. … [Click Below for Full Description]

HUGO Herman.
Typis Henrici Aertssenii 1628 Testo latino. Cm.12,6x8,5. Pg.(30), 456, (2). Legatura in piena pergamena rigida con titoli manoscritti al dorso a tre nervi. Tagli spruzzati. Con 46 "emblemi" incisi nel testo da Christoph van Sichem il giovane. Sempre nel testo 18 piccoli fregi ornamentali ovali, impressi su fondo nero, e numerosi altri finalini. Fresco esemplare. Peter Maurice Daly in "Companion to emblem studies" (Brooklyn, AMS Press, 2008; pg.109) definisce il presente testo "the most popular religious emblem book of the seventeenth century", tanto da conoscere 42 edizioni, solo in lingua latina. Ne è autore il padre gesuita belga Hermann Hugo (Bruxelles, 1588 - 1629), che compì gli studi di teologia e filosofia a Lovanio. Oltre a insegnare nei Collegi Gesuiti di Antwerp e di Bruxelles, svolse la pratica di cappellano militare al servizio di Ambrogio Spinola in Spagna e morì di peste a Rheinsberg. La presente costituisce la terza edizione dell'opera dopo quelle, sempre stampate ad Anversa, del 1624 e del 1627. Il ricchissimo apparato iconografico si deve alla mano di Christoph Van Sichem le jeune (1582 circa - 1658), uno dei maggiori illustratori dell'epoca, allievo di Jacques Gheyn, e sono ispirate a quelle di corredo alla prima edizione, opera di Boetius Adamsz a Bolswert (Bolsward in Frisia, 1586 circa - 1633), considerato con il fratello minore Schelte uno dei principali incisori a bulino al servizio di Rubens. L'Opera, attraverso le tavole assai significative, si articola in tre "libri" ("Gemitus Animae Poenitentis"; "Desideria Animae Sanctae"; "Suspiria Animae Amant … [Click Below for Full Description]

[N.p.: S.n., c. 1628]. [viii], 298 pp. Quarto (8" x 6"). Contemporary limp vellum, early hand-lettered title and shelf number to spine, ties lacking. Moderate rubbing to extremities, chipping to center and foot of spine, corners bumped and lightly worn, hinges partially cracked, vellum just beginning to crack through pastedowns, a few partial cracks to text block. Moderate toning to text, somewhat darker in places, dampspotting in a few places, staining to some leaves. Early owner inscription (of a Jesuit library) to title page, a few brief annotations to text, interior otherwise clean. $1,500. * With index. Arranged chronologically, this volume contains papal bulls and related documents from the pontificates of Popes Gregory XV and Urban VIII issued between 1621-1628. They offer an interesting perspective on the Church and Papal States at an important point in its history. (The expansion of political territory and church missions are two highlights from this period.) Analogous in organization to volumes of session laws, collections of papal bulls were issued sporadically from the fifteenth century onward. All are scarce today. OCLC locates 5 examples in North America, all from the seventeenth century, two in law schools (Harvard, UC-Berkeley). None are identical to our copy.

With 10 engr. title pages, 252 engraved illustrations, 3 engr. views, 17 engr. maps, and 3 armorial engravings. Bound at the end are 5 extra maps and views (including a world map and a view of Jerusalem) from Marino Sanuto's 1611 "Liber secretorum fidelium crucis". Slightly later Spanish limp vellum with ms. title to spine. Ties. All twelve books of Théodore de Bry's "Petits Voyages", the greatest single collection of material on early voyages to the East Indies and considered unique in its extraordinary wealth of cartographical and visual material on Africa, India, and South Asia. Notably, book seven includes Gasparo Balbi's groundbreaking account of the Middle East, first published in 1590 as "Viaggio dell' Indie Orientali" - a mere 16 years before this present issue, making this the second appearance in print altogether and the first Latin translation. Balbi, a Venetian jewel merchant, travelled extensively in the Arabian Peninsula in search of precious stones. From Venice he sailed for Aleppo, proceeding to Bir and from there overland to Baghdad, descending the Tigris to Basra, where he embarked for India. While in the Persian Gulf, he studied the pearl industry, noting that the best pearls were to be found at Bahrain and Julfar. He refers to islands in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi (including Sir Bani Yas and Das) and to several coastal settlements that were to become permanently established, such as Dubai and Ras al Khaima.

Basel, (Sebastian Henricpetri), 1628.. Folio (265 x 398 mm). Engr. allegorical title (with a portrait of Sebastian Münster within a cartouche at the bottom by Mathäus Merian), (24), 1752, (12) pp. Title page printed in red and black. With 26 double-page woodcut maps, woodcut portrait of Münster on verso of t. p., 72 double-page woodcut maps, plans and views, and about 1500 smaller woodcut illustrations of maps, plans, views, plants, animals, monsters, etc. in the text (including repeats). Contemp. vellum. All edges red.. A fine, tall, and very clean example of the final, largest and most important edition of Münster's monumental work. The "Cosmographia" by Sebastian Münster (1488-1552), a German cartographer and cosmographer, was one of the most successful and popular books of the 16th century. The most highly valued of all cosmographies, it passed through 24 editions in 100 years and was of paramount importance for the revival of geography in 16th-century Europe. The present copy is of the last German edition, the best and most extensive one. It contains the newly cut woodblocks by Sebastian Petri in the "copperplate style" after the corresponding maps in the pre-1587 editions of Ortelius's "Theatrum". This includes the famous map of Sumatra with the inset of an elephant that had been moved from the map of Ceylon in the 1540 edition, as opinion shifted to make Sumatra the preferred candidate for the island of "Taprobana". Furthermore, 68 other maps and plans were published here for the first time. The famous map of Europe in the form of a queen (after Bucius 1537) appears … [Click Below for Full Description]

HUGO Herman.
Typis Henrici Aertssenii, Antverpiae, 1628. Testo latino. Cm.12,6x8,5. Pg.(30), 456, (2). Legatura in piena pergamena rigida con titoli manoscritti al dorso a tre nervi. Tagli spruzzati. Con 46 "emblemi" incisi nel testo da Christoph van Sichem il giovane. Sempre nel testo 18 piccoli fregi ornamentali ovali, impressi su fondo nero, e numerosi altri finalini. Fresco esemplare. Peter Maurice Daly in "Companion to emblem studies" (Brooklyn, AMS Press, 2008; pg.109) definisce il presente testo "the most popular religious emblem book of the seventeenth century", tanto da conoscere 42 edizioni, solo in lingua latina. Ne è autore il padre gesuita belga Hermann Hugo (Bruxelles, 1588-1629), che compì gli studi di teologia e filosofia a Lovanio. Oltre a insegnare nei Collegi Gesuiti di Antwerp e di Bruxelles, svolse la pratica di cappellano militare al servizio di Ambrogio Spinola in Spagna e morì di peste a Rheinsberg. La presente costituisce la terza edizione dell'opera dopo quelle, sempre stampate ad Anversa, del 1624 e del 1627. Il ricchissimo apparato iconografico si deve alla mano di Christoph Van Sichem le jeune (1582 circa - 1658), uno dei maggiori illustratori dell'epoca, allievo di Jacques Gheyn, e sono ispirate a quelle di corredo alla prima edizione, opera di Boetius Adamsz a Bolswert (Bolsward in Frisia, 1586 circa - 1633), considerato con il fratello minore Schelte uno dei principali incisori a bulino al servizio di Rubens. L'Opera, attraverso le tavole assai significative, si articola in tre "libri" ("Gemitus Animae Poenitentis"; "Desideria Animae Sanctae"; "Suspiria A … [Click Below for Full Description]

HARVEY, William.
Third, but second complete, edition of the single most important and famous medical book ever published, containing Harvey's discovery and experimental proof of the circulation of the blood, which created a revolution in physiology comparable to the Copernican revolution in astronomy. Harvey's discovery was to become "the cornerstone of modern physiology and medicine" (Garrison-Morton). <i>De motu cordis</i> "is probably the most important book in the history of medicine. What Vesalius was to anatomy, Harvey was to physiology; the whole scientific outlook on the human body was transformed, and behind almost every important medical advance in modern times lies the work of Harvey" (Heirs of Hippocrates). This is the earliest edition that collectors can reasonably expect to obtain, the first edition (Frankfurt, 1628) being of the greatest rarity. The second edition (Venice, 1635), published with the <i>Exercitationes</i> of Emilio Parigiano (known as Parisanus), one of Harvey's many opponents, was fragmentary, lacking the plates, parts of the introduction and chapters I and XVI. In this edition, the publisher Maire restored these passages, included the illustrations, and also added the criticism and denials of James Primerose (<i>Animadversiones</i>, 1630) as a separate tract at the end of the book. The text of Harvey's treatise is printed passage by passage alternatively with the refutations of Parigiano.<br/><br/> <i>Provenance</i>: S.

CAMPEGGI, Ridolfo, Count; TORTOLETTI, Girolamo.
Rome: Lodovico Grignani, 1628. Small 8vo (141 x 96 mm). Collation: A-D8. 64 pp. (last page misnumbered "94"). Small crucifixion woodcut on title. Slight browning. 18th-century pattern paper wrappers, blue-stained edges. *** Only Edition. Campeggi's posthumously published verses in 114 stanzas in ottava rima relate in heart-rending images the siege and destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in AD 70. Descended from a noble Bolognese family, Count Campeggi (1565-1624) was an erudite and prolific author of libretti and madrigals and adept in most poetic genres of the early seicento. His verses, though skilled, bear occasional marks of the overblown Marinist style. Tortoletti's poem in 63 stanzas (pp. 43-64) appeared previously in 1625 (ICCU giving no locations) under the title used here as its drop-title: "Il santo sepolcro prigioniero. Lettera di Gierusalemme scritta a Roma." In it the personified Jerusalem, captive under Islamic rule, addresses Rome. During the same year Grignani published a discorso academic by Tortoletti on the "Turkish threat": Se l'Italia habbia forze sufficienti d'abbattere l'armi turchesche. The poems are prefaced by a dedication from the editor Federico Grossi to Vincenzo Moretti, dated 15 September 1628. No copies in OCLC, COPAC, etc.; ICCU lists 2 copies, both in Rome (Casatanense & Bib. Univ. Alessandrina). C. Mutini, art. DBI 17:470-72 (Campeggi).
