        A short and sweete exposition upon the first nine chapters of Zachary

      London: Printed by R. Young for John Bartlet, at the signe of the gilt Cup in Cheape-side, 1629. FIRST EDITION. Very attractive recent half calf antique, marbled boards, five raised bands on spine, compartments gilt, red morocco label in the second. EXCELLENT COPY. 8vo. [8], 165 pp. including full-page woodcut plate bound as frontispiece (intended to be placed between pp. 50/51). COLLATION: A-Y4, without the final blank leaf, otherwise COMPLETE. Provenance: blindstamps of the now-defunct Theological Institute Connecticut (from thence to Case Memorial Library, with inkstamp) First Edition of this highly curious Elizabethan theological work, illustrated with a strange and wonderful woodcut of the "Vision of the Golden Candlestick" (Zech. 4). Rare on the market: this is the only copy known to us in private ownership; no copy has appear at auction in at least 35 years. This interpretation of Zechariah (I-IX) is perhaps Pemble's final work: "He died in the flower of his age, as he was making his lectures on the prophecy of Zechariah (finishing but nine chapters of fourteen)... of a burning fever" (SOURCE: Fuller, History of the Worthies of England, vol. 3, p. 258). Published posthumously, as were all Pemble's works, through the offices of former tutor Richard Capel, who edited this work and signed the preface. "He appears to have been a good Hebrew scholar, and employs his learning very advantageously, particularly in expounding the book of Zechariah" (SOURCE: Orme, Bibliotheca Biblica, p. 345). "Pemble's work attracted attention long after his death, helping to influence Richard Baxter against Arminianism and shape the high-Calvinist tenets of the eighteenth-century Baptists John Gill and John Brine. Baxter and Thomas Blake each cited Pemble in their dispute over the covenants and the role of scripture as an instrument of the Spirit" (SOURCE: Oxford Dictionary of National Biography).

        Les Oeuvres de N. Frenicle, conseiller du Roy et general en sa Cour des Monnayes.

      - Paris, Jean de Bordeaux, 1629. 3 parties en un volume in-8, demi-vélin blanc à la Bradel, dos lisse orné d'un petit fleuron central, titre et date calligraphiés à la plume (rel. du XIXe s.), (1) f. de titre, (6) p. de prélim., 268 p. et (1) f. de faux-titre, (6) p. de prélim., 172 p., (5) p. de table. Première édition collective, partagée avec Toussainct du Bray, des oeuvres de Nicolas Frenicle, réunissant ses hymnes, élégies, sonnets et églogues. Conseiller à la cour des monnaies, l'auteur n'avait que 29 ans lorsqu'il publia ce recueil. Ami de Chapelain, Frenicle participa au groupe des "Illustres Bergers", compagnie littéraire constituée vers 1625 avec Guillaume Colletet, Jean Ogier de Gombauld, Louis Mauduit, Claude Malleville, Antoine Godeau, les frères Germain, Philippe Habert, etc. Ces jeunes gens, qui prirent modèle sur les héros de l'Astrée, se réunissaient pour cultiver la poésie dans les environs de Paris, sur les bords de la Seine. A la fois ouverts au classicisme naissant et sensibles à la spiritualité de la réforme, réunis par leur admiration pour Ronsard et Malherbe, ils s'efforçaient de concilier leur ferveur religieuse avec une littérature galante, voire gaillarde. Selon Lachèvre (cf. infra), Frenicle avait participé au ‘Parnasse satyrique’, et comme tel, fut incriminé en 1623 par le Parlement de Paris. Contient, parmi les pièces préliminaires, des pièces de L. Mauduit, J.-C. Villeneuve, C. Morin, A. Godeau, C. Malleville et Deslandes. La troisième partie ("Eglogues") figure sous page de titre et pagination particulières. (Arbour, ‘Toussaint Du Bray', n°281. Bibliothèque De Backer, 743: "de la plus grande rareté". Brunet, II, 1390. Lachèvre, ‘Recueils collectifs de poésies libres et satiriques', p. 225. Picot, I, 824). De la bibliothèque de Frédéric Lachèvre, avec son ex-libris gravé. Très bon exemplaire.

He studied in Leyden and became there the favourite pupil of the genius J.J. Scaliger, whom he succeeded as professor of Greek after 1609. Sandys calls his work on Greek authors, such as Hesiod and Aristotle better than his work on Latin authors. 'Nevertheless, his criticisms were highly praised by his contemporaries and by his immediate successors'. (Sandys, History of Classical scholarship, p. 314) The edition was a success. Dibdin mentions 4 editions by D. Heinsius in the 17th century.)

      WorldCat (1 copy). First printed edition of a Turkish commentary on the great Persian scholar Ibn Sina (Avicenna) (ca. 980-1037), best known for his pioneering medical works, by Ziyâ ed-dîn Seyyid (or Seyyit) Yahyâ (died a.h. 1039 [= 1629/30]). It was printed at Cairo in the Islamic year 1256 (1840/41). Another edition appeared at Istanbul in 1264 (1847/48).Princeton University Library has a copy of the present edition and the 1847/48 edition, the former scanned on Hathi Trust. WorldCat lists the Princeton original and the Hathi Trust scan together in one entry, but from the catalogues of the other libraries listed it would appear that none of them has a copy of the original. With a small round owner's or library stamp on the initial blank page, difficult to make out, but probably Turkish. With an occasional minor smudge or spot, but otherwise in very good condition. The binding is rubbed, the spine tattered and the endpapers water stained. First edition of a very rare, early 17th-century Turkish commentary on Avicenna.

      Oxford, John Lichfield, for Edward Forrest 1629. (8) 248 (8) p. Rebound Leather with ribbed back and richly decorated with stamps, 4° (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.

This second edition contains for the first time the engraved portraits of Coke and Littleton, ?A Table? with separate title page dated 1629, ?To the Reader? and 34 pages of index, which was not published with the first edition."Ranging over the whole field of law, in comment, report, argument and decision, the Institutes is a disorderly, pedantic, masterful work in which the common thread is a national dogmatism, tenacious of its continuous self-perpetuating life. With it the lawyers fought the battle of the constitution against the Stewarts; historical research was their defence for national liberties. In the Institutes...the tradition of the common law...firmly established itself as the basis of the constitution". PMM

        De Plantis Exoticis. Libri duo.

      - Venezia, G. Gueriglio, 1629. 4to (195 x 141 mm). pp. (xvi), 344, including engraved title and 145 full-page engravings. Contemporary vellum. Second edition, the first was published in 1627. Prospero Alpini (1553-1616) was director of the Botanic Gardens at Padua (1603-1616). "The material for the 'De plantis exoticis', which was published posthumously, also derived from Alpini's travels. With Onorio Belli he carefully studied the flora of Crete. Information on plants from other areas was later incorporated into the manuscript, which was edited by his son Alpino and completed in 1614. Data concerning some of these plants were obtained by examining specimens grown from seeds sent to Alpini. A total of 145 plants, each illustrated by a woodcut (incorrect should be engraving!), formed a notable contribution to Mediterranean floristics. This is especially true of the flora of Crete, many of whose plants were described for the first time. The accuracy of Alpini's descriptions was demonstrated by A. Baldacci and P.A. Saccardo, who identified seventy-one of the eighty-five Cretan plants on which he reported" (DSB).Title page with small paper repair, some insignificant paper repair to a few leaves with no loss of text.Hunt 213; Nissen BBI, 21.

According to Pforzheimer, Elizabeth was apparently only dissuaded from hanging Hayward by Bacon&#146;s comment, after reading the book, that the author was not guilty of treason but only of felony since he had stolen the better part from Tacitus. Following the accession of James I, Hayward secured a large practice in the court of arches, and in 1610 was named historiographer of the newly founded Chelsea College. STC 12997.

        The Historie of the Raigne of King Henry the Seventh

      London: printed for I.H. & R.Y, 1629. SECOND EDITION. 1 volume, folio, (2)248pp.(5), clean and bright throughout. Bound in contemporary full sheep over cords, expertly rebacked in matching leather, gilt lettered black leather spine label, overall VERY GOOD. The second edition is the first to contain an index table not present in the first edition. Produced by Bacon after his 1621 impeachment by Parliament, and considered a high-spot of Renaissance historiography. This is the only historical literary endeavor of Bacon. When Baconians are confronted with their disbelief in Shakespeare they point out the from 1377 to 1547 there were eight kings of England and all make their appearance in ShakespeareÆs plays with but one exception, and that is, Henry VII. Besides, Bacon commences his History of Henry the VII where Shakespeare terminates his Richard III, that is, on Bosworth Field. It has further been pointed out that this work can easily fall into blank verse, though written in prose.

They were first published, in stages, between 1628 and 1644. Widely recognized as a foundational document of the common law, they have been cited in over 70 cases decided by the Supreme Court of the United States, including several landmark cases. For example, in Roe v. Wade (1973, Coke&#39;s Institutes are cited as evidence that under old English common law, an abortion performed before quickening was not an indictable offence. In the much earlier case of United States v. E. C. Knight Co. (1895, Coke&#39;s Institutes are quoted at some length for their definition of monopolies.

        Considerations touching a Warre with Spaine. Written by the Right Honourable Francis Lo. Verulam, Vi. St. Alban.

      London: Imprinted 1629 - Small quarto (183 × 134 mm). Early twentieth-century dark blue morocco for W.H. Smith, title gilt to spine, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with foliate tools, double gilt fillet panel to the boards, single rule to turn-ins. Title page slightly soiled, small snuff-holes to B3 and B4 costing part of a couple of letters, but overall very good. First edition, uncommon, just a handful of copies at auction in the last 30 years. Written in 1624, this essay is dedicated to Charles I, as prince of Wales ("Your Maiestie hath an Imperiall name; It was a Charles that brought the Empire first into France; A Charles that brought it first into Spaine; Why should not Great Brittaine have his turne?"), and is a plea for Britain to mount a naval challenge to Spain's European hegemony: "For money no doubt is the principall part of the greatnesse of Spaine but in this part of all others is most to be considered, the ticklish and brittle State of the greatnesse of Spain. Their greatnesse consisteth in their treasure, their treasure in their Indies, and their Indies (if it be well weighed) are indeed but an accession to such as are Masters of the Sea, so as this axeltree whereupon their greatnesse turneth is soone cut in two, by any that shall be stronger than they by Sea whereas wars are generally cause of poverty or consumption, on the contrary part the special nature of this warre with Spaine (if it be made by Sea) is like to be a lucrative and a restorative war". To this end it contains accounts of Drake's and Hawkins's various expeditions against the Spanish in the West Indies and Drake's exploits at Cadiz ("I remember Drake in the vaunting stile of a Souldier would call this Enterprise the cingeing of the King of Spaines beard"); a six-page narrative of the Spanish Armada - "that Sea Giant, the invincible Armado"; a commentary on the Spanish invasion of Ireland in 1601 and their ignominious defeat at Kinsale; and a spirited telling of the last fight of Sir Richard Grenville's Revenge: "In the yeere 1591 was that memorable fight of an English ship called the Revenge, under command of Sir Richard Greenfield, memorable I say beyond credit, & to the height of some heroicall fable. And though it was a defeat, yet it exceeded a victory, being like the Act of a Sampson that killed more men at his death than he had done in the time of all his life." In the foreword to his collection of essays by Bacon (Certaine Miscellany Works) published later in the same year, William Rawley, Bacon's chaplain, amanuensis and hagiographer, denigrated this edition as "corrupt and surreptitious", but this was the only separately printed contemporary edition in English of this work.

        Philosophia Magnetica, in qua Magnetis Natura penitus explicatur, et Omnium quae hoc Lapide cernuntur, causae propriae afferuntur

      Engraved title & several engravings & numerous woodcuts in the text. 8 p.l., 412, [12] pp. Folio, cont. half-sheep & marbled boards (minor worming towards end), spine gilt, black leather lettering piece on spine. Ferrara: F. Succius, 1629. First edition, Jesuit issue, and a very fine copy. "Perhaps the most significant discovery of the century following Gilbert was that of electrical repulsion. This effect seems first to have been noticed incidentally by Cabeus, who, in his Philosophia Magnetica (1629), describes how filings attracted by excited amber sometimes recoiled to a distance of several inches after making contact."-Wolf, A History of Science, Technology, and Philosophy, I, p. 303. Cabeo also relates his many experiments on the possibility of telegraphic communication by means of magnetized needles and gives the first picture of the sympathetic telegraph, an imaginary magnetic telegraph which sometimes appeared in early electrical literature, fancifully prefiguring the actual telegraph. It was supposed to operate by synchronous activation of two instruments with alphabetic dials whose needles had been magnetized by the same magnet. Cabeo (1586-1650), taught theology and mathematics in Parma for many years until he settled in Genoa where he taught mathematics. Handsome and large copy. There are three issues (no priority) of this book: the first issue has a royal coat-of-arms at the head of the title; the second issue has the coat-of-arms replaced by the Jesuit emblem; and the third was produced for export to Germany and has an added printed title with a Cologne imprint. &#10087; Ferguson, I, p. 136.

Dos bruni et tâches sur les plats. Une mouillure claire marge inférieure sans atteinte au texte sur l'ensemble de l'ouvrage. Giuseppe Viola Zanini (1575-1631), né à Vincence et mort à Padoue, fut un peintre et un architecte qui travailla dans les environs de Venise. Il fut davantage un peintre de décor, renommé pour tel, qu'un architecte actif, l'architecture l'intéressant comme moyen d'expression du décor peint. L'ouvrage est divisé en deux parties, la première partie s'intéressant aux origines de l'architecture et aux éléments qui la composent, ainsi que de la façon dont on doit construire, le second livre est lui entièrement dévolu aux cinq ordres. Ce livre fut largement étudié ailleurs qu'en Italie, et notamment par Blondel en France. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Booke of Common Prayer:

      London: by Bonham Norton, and John Bill, Printers to the Kings most Excellent Majestie,, 1629. And administration of the Sacraments: And other Rites and Ceremonies of the Church of England. Folio (328 x 220 mm) in sixes. Contemporary calf, sides with frames in gilt and blind, fleurons at corners, enclosing gilt centrepiece with initials "MB" either side, skilfully rebacked with original flat spine laid down, gilt bands and ornaments, relined, old gilt edges at head and tail, gilt removed from the fore edge to allow painting, lacks ties. Engraved titles, 34 full-page genealogies, double-page map of Canaan woodcut initials and head- and tailpieces. Double-column, ruled in red. Boards a little scuffed and with a few wormholes and some surface loss to upper edge of rear board and corners, the occasional blemish to contents, a good copy. With a hand-painted watercolour by John T. Beer on the fore edge. An attractive example of the work of the fore-edge artist John T. Beer (1826?-1900), a successful Merseyside clothier and book collector, who turned to fore-edge painting in his retirement, producing more than 200 fore-edge paintings and painted bindings between 1884 and 1900. Beer used books from his own collection and he did not gild the fore-edges, though he cleaned and fanned the pages before adding his illustration; the closed book therefore shows a slightly foreshortened version of the scene, with the correct proportions only appearing when the pages are fanned open. His collection was sold at auction by Sotheby&#39;s in November 1903. Beer has titled this painting "The Finding of Moses" on the front pastedown. The front pastedown is relined with paper at a later date and has an example of Charles I&#39;s bookplate pasted to it, though the contemporary initials on the boards are "M.B.

        De Corporibus marinis Lapidescentibus Quae Defossa Reperiuntur. Auctore Augustino Scilla addita dissertatione fabii columnae De Glossopetris, 1747

      SECOND EDITION, FIRST LATIN EDITION OF AN INFLUENTIAL, LAVISHLY ILLUSTRATED BOOK THAT ARGUED THE CASE FOR THE ORGANIC ORIGIN OF FOSSILS. Augustino Scilla (1629-1700) was a painter, philosopher, naturalist, antiquarian and numismatist, geologist, and is considered one of the founders of sedimentology. Calling it &#39;vain speculation,&#39; Scilla opposed the belief that fossils were just freaks of nature grown inside rocks. He believed that fossils were the remains of real animals and carried out the first real laboratory experiments to prove this. "In the 17th century, most scientists still considered fossils to be lusus naturae, sports of nature, born within rocks through the influence of the stars or by other strange means. Convinced that &#39;to doubt things is the best and only way to begin to know them, even approximately,&#39; Scilla described with admirable clarity and critical sense the observations he had made on the fossiliferous sedimentary terrains of both shores of the Strait of Messina, dealing with the succession of strata, the genesis of the rocks, and particularly the nature of the fossils. [Scilla] anticipated the principle that the present is the key to the past when he explained the repetition of coarse, medium, and fine-grained materials in terms of what he could see actually happening in the same places under the action of rapid torrents. He considered fossils to be animal remains imprisoned in rocks that are now hard but were originally muddy or sandy soil... Scilla studied the zoological features of each fossil, comparing them with those of analogous living species. He did not limit himself to the study of mollusks, the origins of which seemed obvious to him, but tackled more difficult problems, recognizing the presence of fossil corals and echinoderms and showing that the much-discussed glossopetrae are the teeth of sharks. To deny the organic origin of fossils, he concluded, was to &#39;commit the sin of disputing a known truth&#39;" (Complete Dictionary of Scientific Biography, 12, 256-257). CONDITION & DETAILS: Romae: Typis Antonii de Rubeis. Second edition. First Latin edition. Quarto (11 x 8 inches; 275 x 200mm). [12], 73, [1], 6 Tabularum, [28 plates], 2. 28 copperplate engravings.
