GAGLIANO, Marca da 1582-1643
1628. "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."

Ovid; Sandys, George (translator)
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 engrave … [Click Below for Full Description]

THIBAULT, Girard - Saloman SAVERY (1594-1678)
[Leiden: B. & A. Elzevir, 1628. Copper engraving by Saloman Savery. Very good condition. 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.

ANGHIERA, Peter Martyr d' (PETER MARTYR)
London: Printed for Michael Sparke, 1628. Inner margins of first few leaves strengthened; a few leaves shorter than others at lower margins but all correct and text untouched.. Small quarto, an attractive copy in a good old Morrell binding of panelled calf gilt, gilt edges. Extremely rare: the second edition of the first complete printing of Peter Martyr's Decades in English (or in fact in any vernacular language). The English text was prepared by Michael Lok (among other flourishes to his tricky career he was unfortunate to have been Frobisher's financial backer) from the Latin original. Richard Hakluyt's hand is apparent throughout as it was he that encouraged Lok to produce the translation, based on the Latin text that Hakluyt had himself published in 1587 for the good reason that the obscure 1530 Alcala original edition of the full text of the Decades, the only earlier full text, was even then so hard to find. "The first, and for many years the only, history of the New World. Hence its important position in the literature of American history; this being indeed in many respects the sole contemporary source of information concerning the discovery and conquest of America' (Church). King Ferdinand's councillor for Spain's affairs in the New World, Peter Martyr was the foremost chronicler of the New World in its earliest period, and the first writer to preach the importance of the discovery of America by his countryman Columbus. An Italian scholar, from 1487 living in Spain, he was for several years tutor to the children of Ferdinand and Isabella, and was a friend and contem … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 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 i … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

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.

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.
