        Vindicae Fidei, or A Treatise of Iustification by Faith, wherein the truth of that point is fully cleared, and vindicated from the cauills of it's Adversaries. The second Edition.

      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. Behind page 248 a table of contents concerning another book).

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.

Third Edition. Hayward was imprisoned by Queen Elizabeth, 1599-1601, for publishing the present work, which he had dedicated to Essex. According to Pforzheimer, Elizabeth was apparently only dissuaded from hanging Hayward by Bacon’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.

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.

        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.

        [49 documents on the history of the Thirty Years' War]. Liège, etc., 1629-1634[-ca. 1648]. Folio (32.5×23.5 cm). Manuscript on paper in Latin, French and Italian. Italian limp sheepskin parchment (ca. 1651), constructed from the gold-tooled parchment of two smaller bindings.

      Phillipps manuscripts 7596. Interesting collection of 49 manuscript documents on the history of the Thirty Years' War, including contemporary copies of letters and other documents by King Gustav Adolf of Sweden, King Louis XIII of France, King Philippe IV of Spain and many other leading figures. About 16 are undated but the rest are dated 1629 to 1634 from Liège, Mainz, Versailles, Trier, Brussels, etc. Several watermarks or groups of related watermarks repeat in about 40 of the documents, and most of these are written in similar upright hands, so many of the documents are probably contemporary copies from a single or a small number of sources. The remaining documents show different watermarks and different (mostly sloped cursive) hands, so they may have been assembled from a variety of sources. Much of the paper may have come from Vosges but was used in the Low Countries in the 1630s. Since the spine title mentions the date 1651 and the binding decoration appears to be Italian, it seems likely that the collection was assembled and bound there.From the collection of Sir Thomas Phillipps. The binding is wrinkled with a few small tears. Some of the paper stocks are browned and the edges of some documents tattered, but they are otherwise in good condition.

Bislang war sie eigentlich nur als der schneller arbeitende Ersatz für den Linienstrich gepflegt worden. Gab es wohl auch hie und da Ausnahmen, so ist es doch zuerst Callot, der sein ganzes Lebenswerk der Radierung widmet und somit ihren Anspruch auf die Ehren einer hohen, selbständigen Kunst rechtfertigt. Er hat ihr auch als erster ein spezifisches Gepräge verliehen durch den Ausbau der Kunst des Deckens', die es bekanntermaßen ermöglicht, in unvergleichlicher Weise die Luftperspektive zu beherrschen. Hier ist er nicht nur der Erfinder, wenn man sich so ausdrücken darf, gewesen, sondern auch unübertroffen geblieben, wie viele seiner Ansichten und Landschaften, vor allem sein berühmter Pont neuf', bezeugen. Sodann ist von Wichtigkeit, dass Callot der erste große schöpferische' Künstler ist, der sich damit bescheidet, lediglich Graphiker zu sein." (zitiert aus: Thieme-Becker, Bd. V, S. 407).

        Horologium oscillatorium sive de motu pendulorum ad horologia aptato demonstrationes geometricae.Paris: F. Muguet, 1673.

      First edition and a very fine copy of the author's most important work, "a superb tapestry woven from the three strands of the science of Christiaan Huygens (1629-1695): mathematics, mechanics, and technology" (<i>Landmark Writings</i>, p. 34). It was "the most original work of this kind since Galileo's <i>Discorsi</i>" (PMM), and a "work of the highest genius which has influenced every science through its mastery of the principles of dynamics. It is second in scientific importance perhaps only to Newton's <i>Principia</i>, which is in some respects based on it" (Charles Singer, <i>A Short History of Science to the Nineteenth Century</i>, 1941, p. 258). It is also probably the single most important book in the literature on clocks.<br/><br/> &#10087; PMM 154; Dibner 145; Horblit 53; Evans 31; Sparrow 109; Norman 1137.<br/><br/> <i>Provenance:</i> The title-page is inscribed "Au / P[ère] Fiacre de / Paris Pred[icateu]r Cap[ucin]", in a contemporary hand. Below the donation inscription someone (presumably Fiacre) wrote "Pour / les Capucins / de St Honoré", i.e. the Capucin convent on rue St-Honoré, Paris, which was founded in 1574. Apparently he changed his mind however - perhaps because other copies of the book were available in Paris - and so he stuck a piece of paper over this inscription to hide it, and wrote on it "aux / Capucins de / Meudon". Meudon (south-west of Paris, towards Versailles) was the first Capucin convent in France, founded in 1572. He then also wrote of the reverse of the leaf, to try to prevent anyone reading the inscription donating the book to St-Honoré. One sheet of paper laid in with scientific notes, probably in the hand of Fiacre. <br/> The book later belonged to Pierre Berès (1913-2008), French bookseller and antiquarian book collector. He was described as "the king of French booksellers" in his New York Times obituary and as "a legendary figure in the world of art, collecting and publishing" by French culture minister Christine Albanel. <br/><br/> The construction of a reliable time-keeping device was essential for determining longitude, a problem of acute importance in seventeenth-century Europe. Galileo had discovered the isochronism of the pendulum (that the duration of its swing is independent of the width of the swing) and had proposed, unknown to Huygens, the construction of a pendulum clock. But Huygens was the first to actually construct such a clock, which he described in his <i>Horologium</i> (1658), a brief work of just 15 pages, not to be confused with the present work. Huygens realized what Galileo had not: that the isochronism of the pendulum is not exact, and only approximately true when the width of the swing is small. For the clock described in his 1658 work, he had reduced the swing of the pendulum by inserting additional gearing in the form of a crown wheel and pinion, "which allows the pendulum to swing with so small an arc that any variation has a negligible effect on the time" (Baille, p. 54). But by 1659 Huygens had already discovered a method of recovering exact isochronism: he restricted the swing of the pendulum by using 'cheeks' in the form of a cycloid (the path of a point on the edge of a circle as it rolls along a straight line). This discovery, which he had called "the most fortunate finding which ever befell me" (<i>DSB</i>), rested on a detailed mathematical analysis of circular motion, and of dynamics more widely, that is presented in the present work.<br/><br/> <i>Horologium oscillatorium</i> was in five closely-related parts. The first described the new cycloidal clock and how to build it; the next two parts were devoted to establishing that the cycloidal clock is isochronous. In Part 2 Huygens took up Galileo's analysis of free fall and fall along inclined planes and extended it to fall along curves, where the curve was approximated at each point by its tangent. Although completely general, the propositions were background to the main theorem in which Huygens demonstrated that, given a cycloid erected in the vertical plane with its axis perpendicular and its vertex at the bottom, no matter where along the inverted cycloid a body is released it will reach the bottom in a fixed amount of time; that is, fall along an inverted cycloid is isochronous.<br/><br/> In Part 3 Huygens introduced the concept of an 'evolute,' a curve that is 'unrolled' to create a second curve (the first curve was called the 'involute' of the second). The pendulum of his clock served as his model: if a cord were 'unrolled' off one curved plate, the bob would trace out the involute. Given the results of Part 2, he obviously wanted the curve swept out by the bob to be a cycloid; its evolute is the shape into which the curved plates should be bent. To his surprise he discovered that it was another cycloid. To derive this result Huygens used a very personal form of infinitesimal analysis, a fusion of the Cartesian analytic geometry that he had learned from van Schooten with classical geometry and contemporary infinitesimal techniques, but in the published version he banished infinitesimals and proved that the evolute of a cycloid is another cycloid by using a sequence of propositions that defined the reciprocal relationship between the tangent of the evolute and the perpendicular (we would now say normal) of the involute.<br/><br/> In Part 4 Huygens extended his treatment of the 'simple pendulum,' a weightless cord with a point mass at the end, to that of a 'compound pendulum,' in which the swinging mass can be any body whatever. This gave him a way to take into account the mass of the cord and bob and to adjust the rate of swing of the pendulum by means of a small weight that could be moved up and down the cord; thus the clock could be made physically as exact as possible. Huygens was able to derive a simple pendulum that was isochronous to any given compound pendulum.<br/><br/> In Part 5 of <i>Horologium oscillatorium</i> Huygens introduced another clock, this one based on a three-dimensional mathematical model that paralleled the design elements in the clock of Part 1, which had been treated as a two-dimensional system: the pendulum was presumed to swing in a plane. The progenitor of this second clock had also begun life with a freely swinging pendulum, but its bob had rotated in a circle and hence the cord traced out a cone. But as with the cycloidal clock, he modified the clock of Part 5 so that it was constrained by a curved plate to move isochronously. In one of his discoveries made in 1659, Huygens had shown that a ball circulating inside a chalice shaped like a paraboloid (the surface generated by revolving a parabola about its axis) completed any circle in the same amount of time, regardless of how high or low the ball was in the chalice: the paraboloid was isochronous. With his theory of evolutes, he could easily transfer this result to the rotating pendulum and deduce the proper shape for a curved plate that would hold the revolving bob onto the imaginary surface of a paraboloid. By Part 3, Proposition 8, the evolute of a parabola is a semicubical parabola so, if a pendulum were mounted to a curved plate shaped like a semicubical parabola and if the combined pendulum and plate were then rotated about an axis, the bob would isochronously sweep out a paraboloid. Like its cycloidal brother, the paraboloidal clock would theoretically keep perfect time.<br/><br/> With the description of the paraboloidal pendulum clock, <i>Horologium oscillatorium</i> came to an end. Huygens did not provide a detailed mathematical study of the second clock to parallel the analysis he had given for the first. Instead, he merely appended a list of thirteen theorems regarding motion in a circle that had guided his creation of the clock in 1659, but he withheld their proofs. Huygens's stated intent was to save the results for a larger work that would present his definitive explanation of circular motion and centrifugal force. Alas, that work never materialized, although hints of it are found in his manuscripts; the original proofs finally appeared in his <i>Opuscula posthuma</i> (1703) under the title 'De vi centrifuga.' <br/><br/> G.

This copy of the second and extended Elzevir edition of the mock scholarly essays of philologist Daniel Heinsius (1580-1655) has a distinguished continental provenance: that of distinguished humanist, jurist on marriage of the Amsterdam Athenaeum and sometime pupil of Heinsius, Johannes Christenius (c.1600-1672).

        Le marche d'esclaves oder La petite vue de Paris.

      1629. Radierung, 1629, auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: Posthorn (Lieure 45). 11,5:21,7 cm. Literatur: Meaume 712; Lieure 369, II (von VI). Prachtvoller und gleichmäßiger Frühdruck, klar und präzise bis in die feinen Details der Ansicht von Paris im Hintergrund. Vor der Adresse von Fagani. Mit feinem Rändchen um die Plattenkante. - Vereinzelte schwache und nur verso sichtbare Stockflecken beeinträchtigen die bis auf eine leichte Bräunung des Papiers sonst hervorragende Erhaltung des Blattes nicht. Seltene und frühe Ansicht, die einen Blick auf die Pariser Innenstadt zeigt.. "Callots Hauptehrentitel ist, daß er die Radierung zu einer selbständigen Kunst erhoben hat. Bislang war sie eigentlich nur als der schneller arbeitende Ersatz für den Linienstrich gepflegt worden. Gab es wohl auch hie und da Ausnahmen, so ist es doch zuerst Callot, der sein ganzes Lebenswerk der Radierung widmet und somit ihren Anspruch auf die Ehren einer hohen, selbständigen Kunst rechtfertigt. Er hat ihr auch als erster ein spezifisches Gepräge verliehen durch den Ausbau der Kunst des Deckens', die es bekanntermaßen ermöglicht, in unvergleichlicher Weise die Luftperspektive zu beherrschen. Hier ist er nicht nur der Erfinder, wenn man sich so ausdrücken darf, gewesen, sondern auch unübertroffen geblieben, wie viele seiner Ansichten und Landschaften, vor allem sein berühmter Pont neuf', bezeugen. Sodann ist von Wichtigkeit, dass Callot der erste große schöpferische' Künstler ist, der sich damit bescheidet, lediglich Graphiker zu sein." (zitiert aus: Thieme-Becker, Bd. V, S. 407).
