        [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.

        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.

Andrewes (1555-1626) was an English bishop and scholar during the reigns of Queen Elizabeth I and King James I. He is noted for his work overseeing the King James Bible. Andrewes' sermon following the Gunpowder Plot is the basis of later-day commemoration and celebrations of the event. This work was printed at the command of King James I. Additionally, Andrewes' sermons have been used to promulgate the doctrine of the Divine Right of Kings. Andrewes was influential on modern authors Kurt Vonnegut and T.S. Elliot, among others.

        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-velin blanc a la Bradel, dos lisse orne d'un petit fleuron central, titre et date calligraphies a la plume (rel. du XIXe s.), (1) f. de titre, (6) p. de prelim., 268 p. et (1) f. de faux-titre, (6) p. de prelim., 172 p., (5) p. de table. Premiere edition collective, partagee avec Toussainct du Bray, des oeuvres de Nicolas Frenicle, reunissant ses hymnes, elegies, sonnets et eglogues. Conseiller a 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 litteraire constituee vers 1625 avec Guillaume Colletet, Jean Ogier de Gombauld, Louis Mauduit, Claude Malleville, Antoine Godeau, les freres Germain, Philippe Habert, etc. Ces jeunes gens, qui prirent modele sur les heros de l'Astree, se reunissaient pour cultiver la poesie dans les environs de Paris, sur les bords de la Seine. A la fois ouverts au classicisme naissant et sensibles a la spiritualite de la reforme, reunis par leur admiration pour Ronsard et Malherbe, ils s'efforcaient de concilier leur ferveur religieuse avec une litterature galante, voire gaillarde. Selon Lachevre (cf. infra), Frenicle avait participe au 'Parnasse satyrique', et comme tel, fut incrimine en 1623 par le Parlement de Paris. Contient, parmi les pieces preliminaires, des pieces de L. Mauduit, J.-C. Villeneuve, C. Morin, A. Godeau, C. Malleville et Deslandes. La troisieme partie ("Eglogues") figure sous page de titre et pagination particulieres.

      O. O., 1./10. X. 1629.. Deutsche Handschrift auf Papier. 3 SS. auf Doppelblatt. Folio. Mit Adresse.. An Franz Erich von Wettberg zu Bodenwerder in Sachen der unerledigten Kredite des Statz von Münchhausen. Dieser hatte diesbezüglich beim Kaiser eine Supplik eingebracht, der seinerseits den Erzbischof von Köln und den Grafen von Schaumburg-Lippe mit der Angelegenheit betraut hatte. Da diese ins Stocken geraten war, wurde der Fall an Deichmann und drei weitere (hier mitunterzeichnende) Untersuchungskommissare delegiert. - Christoph Deichmann war der Sohn des Bürgermeisters von Burgsteinfurt. 1605 trat er eine Professur für Rechtswissenschaft in Marburg an und wurde später Kanzler beim Grafen von Lippe und Vizepräsident des Hofgerichts, schwedischer Gesandter im Westfälischen Kreis, Kanzler beim Herzog von Mecklenburg und hessischer Gesandter in Hamburg. "1637 nahm ihn die Fruchtbringende Gesellschaft unter dem Namen 'Der Lautere' in ihren Kreis auf. Er schrieb u. a. 'Carmina gratulatoria' (1605)" (DBE). - Mit einem größeren mittigen Ausschnitt (geringf. Textverlust).

      Bremen, de Villiers, 1629.. . Einzige Ausgabe dieser Übersetzung: ein Musterbeispiel für die breiten Bemühungen, die deutsche Schriftsprache 'auszupolieren' und die deutsche Literatur auf das Niveau der westeuropäischen Nachbarn zu heben. Im Vorwort äußert sich Kalckheim zu seinen Bemühungen um Klarheit der Sprache. Dieses Buch trug ihm die Mitgliedschaft in der Fruchtbringenden Gesellschaft ein (als der "Feste"). Kalckheim war Oberst in hessischen Diensten. Nach Verlust seines rechten Beines quittierte er den Dienst, um 4 Jahre lang seinen Studien nachzugehen. Danach trat er wieder in den Kriegsdienst und geriet bei der Schlacht bei Lutter am Barenberge (1626) in Gefangenschaft der Kaiserlichen, wo er Gelegenheit hatte, diese Übersetzung anzufertigen, die durch Anmerkungen und Discurse vermehrt auf beträchtlichen Umfang kam. Er starb 1640 als Kommandierender General in Rostock. Das bemerkenswerte Frontispiz ist bei Faber du Faur abgebildet und wie folgt beschrieben: "Flanking the title is shown Sallust presenting his book to Kalckheim, whose portrait certainly is not flattering. He has a Sancho Pansa face (and figure), holds a quill in his hand, and his peg leg is chained to a wall. He seems to refuse Sallust's offer. How far he is from the postwar 'gallant' type of officer!" - Lagenweise unterschiedlich gebräunt bzw. fleckig. Am Schluß in der äußeren oberen Ecke geringfügiger Wasserrand. Gutes Exemplar. Auf dem Titel der handschriftliche Besitzeintrag des Studiosus Johann C. de Barbis von 1630 sowie der Besitzeintrag von A. Pringsheim, 1906, des Schwiegervaters von Thomas Mann. - VD17 23:236548M.

        Brief mit eigenhändiger Unterschrift

      Uppsala, 4. November 1629. Schwedische Handschrift auf Papier (Wasserzeichen: Monstranz), 2 SS. auf 2 Bll., Folio, ca. 30 × 20,2 cm. Etwas wasserfleckig, zweites Blatt öffnungsbedingt mit kleiner mittiger und Randfehlstelle.. Per Baner (1588 Djursholm - 1644 Stockholm) - P., ein Mitglied des berühmten schwedischen Adelgeschlechts der Baner, war Sohn von Gustav Axelsson Baner und Neffe von Sten Baner, die beide 1600 in Linköping als Anhänger von Sigismund III Vasa hingerichtet wurden. Aufgrund seines heldenhaften Einsatzes bei Vittsjöns, wo Per das Leben von Gustav II Adolf retten konnte, erwarb sich der junge Baner die königliche Gunst; er wurde mit den eingezogenen Gütern seines Onkels Sten belehnt und wurde zum königlichen Kammerherrn ernannt und spielte in der für die schwedische Geschichte so bedeutsame Zeit des Dreißigjährigen Kriegs eine zentrale Rolle als Politiker und Diplomat. 1621 fungierte er als Kriegskommissar in Livland, wurde im Folgejahr Gouverneur von Estland und 1625 schwedischer Reichsrat. 1627 war er in diplomatischen Diensten in Lübeck und nach seiner Rückkehr wurde er schwedischer Vizekanzler und Stellvertreter des allmächtigen Oxenstierna. Während dessen Abwesenheit führte Baner die schwedischen Regierungsgeschäfte. Ein jüngerer Bruder Pers war der nicht weniger bekannte Johan Baner, Feldmarschall und Kommandat der schwedischen Truppen im Dreißigjährigen Krieg. - Peder Gustafsson (Per) Baner (1588-1644), swedish statesman, signed letter, Uppsala, 4. November 1629. Swedish manuscript on paper, 2 pp. on 2 ll., Folio, c. 30 × 20,2 cm. Some waterstaining, second leaf with small holes. To Per Madsen - Very rare Autograph. - Per Baner (1588 Djursholm - 1644 Stockholm) P., a prominent member of the famous swedish noble family Baner, was a son of Gustav Axelsson Baner and a nephew of Sten Baner, both of whom were executed in 1600 at Linköping for being supporters of Sigismund III Vasa. Per saved the life of Gustav II Adolf in 1612, thus gaining the royal favor: He was appointed royal chamberlain, received the possessions of his uncle Sten and became one of the leading political figures in the Thirty Years' War. In 1621 he acted as War Commissioner of Livonia, became Gouvernor of Estonia in 1622 and Councillor of State in 1625. Afterwards he was appointed swedish Vice Chancellor, deputy to the almighty Oxenstierna, whom Baner replaced as acting leader of the swedish politics during the latters absence. Pers brother Johan Baner was Commander-in-Chief of the Swedish troops in Germany during the Thirty Years' War.

        Disputationum de Indiarum Iure [Jure], Sive de Iusta Indiarum...

      1629. Solorzano Pereira, Juan de [1575-1655]. Disputationum de Indiarum Iure, Sive de Iusta Indiarum Occidentalium Gubernatione. Madrid: Ex Typographia Francisci Martinez, 1629. Main text in parallel columns. Copperplate pictorial title page with architectural border. Folio (11" x 8"). Recent three-quarter vellum over patterned paper boards, printed paper title label to spine, endpapers renewed. Woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces and decorated initials. Light toning to text, faint dampstaining to margins in a few places, internally clean. * First edition. Later expanded by an additional volume issued in 1639 (but bibliographically distinct), this is an important analysis of Spanish colonial law by a Spanish jurist who served as a judge of the high court at Lima. Married to the Creole daughter of the governor of Cuzco and resident in Peru for eighteen years, he acquired an unparalleled knowledge of the law and history of the Indies. According to Gongora, his treatise is the "most systematic juridical formulation of the problems of legitimisation of dominion in the seventeenth century [and] enjoyed an unrivalled prestige in the official and legal circles of the Indies for a century and a half." The engraved titles by Cordier depict Philip IV seated between allegorical figures of Spain and America. Gongora, Studies in the Colonial History of Spanish America 62.

The Lawyers Light: Or a Due Direction For the Study of the Law; For Methode, Choyce of Books Moderne, Selection of Authours of More Antiquitie, Application of Either, Accommodation of Divers Other Useful Requisits.

To Which is Annexed for the Affinitie of the Subject, Another Treatise, Called the Use of the Law. London: Benjamin Fisher, 1629. [xvi], 119, [1]; [viii], 93, [3] pp. Two parts, each with title page. Quarto (7" x 5-1/2"). Contemporary calf, blind rules to boards, recently rebacked in period style, early hand-lettered title to fore-edge.

Toning, light soiling to title page, spark burns to a few leaves, some edgewear and offsetting to endleaves. A nice copy with an appealing association. * Only edition. Sir John Dodderidge, or Doddridge, a judge during the reign of Charles I, was a formidably learned jurist who was both a common lawyer and a civilian who held a D.C.L. from Cambridge. Held in high esteem by Holdsworth, he is best known for English Lawyer: Describing a Method for the Managing of the Laws of this Land (1631). He may also be the actual author of William Sheppard's The Touch-Stone of Common Assurances (1648), though this is still a matter of debate. Sir Frederick Pollock [1845-1937] was one of the greatest British judges and legal scholars of his day. His treatises on contracts, jurisprudence the common law and other subjects did much to clarify and systematize English law. Several of these were standard texts that went through several editions. He is also remembered for his collaboration with F.W. Maitland on The History of English Law Before the Time of Edward I and his correspondence with Oliver Wendell Holmes, which was published posthumously as The Holmes-Pollock Letters.

        De Plantis Exoticis. Libri duo.

      1629. 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..

        HIS ARGENIS, TRANSLATED OUT OF LATINE INTO ENGLISH

      London: Richard Meighen and Henry Seile, 1629. First Printing of this translation (variant issue, with 1729, not 1728, on the title page) . Hardcover. 229 x 171 mm (9 x 6 3/4"). 4 p.l., 256, 247-489 pp. (collates as STC). Translated by Robert Le Grys. First Printing of this translation (variant issue, with 1729, not 1728, on the title page). LOVELY RED CRUSHED MOROCCO, ELABORATELY INLAID AND GILT IN 17TH CENTURY STYLE, BY RIVIERE & SON (stamp-signed on front turn-in), the identically decorated covers each with 10 densely gilt lobed ochre morocco inlays forming an undulant outer frame, with inlaid black morocco tulips sprouting between its crests, the whole enclosing a central panel outlined with scalloped stippling, with gilt titling and date at center (flanked by inlaid black flowers rising from a foliate spray above and below it), and with large cornerpieces of fan-shaped inlaid ochre morocco, all of the morocco inlays intricately tooled with fleurons, curling vines, small floral tools, and many gilt circlets and dots; raised bands, double-ruled spine compartments gilt with inlaid black morocco flower at center and inlaid calf trefoil on a gilt background in corners, gilt-ruled turn-ins, all edges gilt. Front pastedown with the bookplate of Austin Smith. STC 1394. A short incipient crack at bottom of front joint, isolated mild stains or smudges (the text probably washed sometime ago), but still A MOST ATTRACTIVE COPY, the text clean and fresh, and the remarkable binding in otherwise outstanding condition. This is a beautiful retrospective 17th century-style binding entirely suitable for Barclay&#39;s allegorical tale of a princess with three suitors: one good, one bad, and one who turns out to be her long-lost brother. The tale is intended to warn against political intrigue and conspiracy of the sort that was all too common both in the England of James I and in France, where Barclay spent years of his life. A key at the end of the work identifies the countries and personages representing the various characters. Some are simple anagrams--Mergania is Germany, Dereficus is Frederick of Bohemia--while others are more subtle. Meleander is Henry III of France, his daughter Argenis represents the crown of France and its line of succession, and so on. Published in Paris shortly after its author&#39;s suspicious death (purportedly from poison), "Argenis" achieved critical acclaim, immediate popularity, and lasting literary influence. According to DNB, "Fenelon&#39;s &#39;Telemachus&#39; is considerably indebted to it, and it is an indispensable link in the chain which unites classical with modern fiction." Barclay (1582-1621) wrote Latin verse in the elegant style of Petronius, producing satires with a lightness of touch that stood in contrast to the coarser style of the day. Originally published in Latin, "Argenis" first appeared in the author&#39;s own English language in 1625; our edition is from the first printing of the second English translation, done by Le Grys. STC seems to indicate that the present printing was issued both with illustrations and, as here, without. The beautiful binding is an appropriate tribute to the 17th century "Golden Age" of English bookbinding by one of the firms that led the craft&#39;s second golden age in the first part of the 20th century. Here, the skilled binders of Riviere have incorporated a number of elements common in Restoration bindings--arabesque inlays, scallops, distinctive globular flowers, garlands, and delicate gilt tooling--and combined them with the firm&#39;s own superior craftsmanship to produce a work that is a homage rather than an imitation of an earlier style. This item is among a small clutch of especially fine bindings from the library of Austin Smith that came into the market in 2006. An active buyer of volumes from the distinguished collection of J. R. Abbey, Smith owned a number of 16th and 17th century works like the present one, bound in fine decorative morocco from various centuries.

        [OPERA]

      Lugd. Batav: Ex Officina Elzeviriana, 1629. Second Elzevier Edition . Hardcover. Small Octavo Elzevier Transformed into an Elegantly Engraved Quarto in a Lovely Decorative Binding. 257 x 187 mm (10 1/8 x 7 3/8"). 16 p.l., 239, [1]; 296 [i.e., 286]; 250 pp. (no printed title to part II). Three parts bound in one volume. Edited by Daniel Heinsius. Second Elzevier Edition. HANDSOME 19TH CENTURY RED CRUSHED MOROCCO BY ARNAUD (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with gilt French fillet border, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with central ornate fleuron enclosed in a lozenge of small star and circle tools and with densely scrolling foliate cornerpieces inhabited by a small bird, intricately gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Engraved title page showing a long-haired Horace strumming a lyre and flanked by two plump cherubs riding swans, the two printed title pages with Elzevier device, foliated initials. THE ORIGINAL SMALL OCTAVO LEAVES (measuring 116 x 65 mm.) INSET INTO QUARTO-SIZE LEAVES WITH FINE ENGRAVED BORDERS. Front pastedown with engraved bookplate of Harald Wiens; verso of front free endpaper with morocco bookplate of Léon Rattier. Willems 314; Rahir 285; Schweiger, p. 403 ("Best edition of Heinsius"); Moss II, 14; Dibdin 97-98; Brunet III, 317; Graesse III, 353. A hint of soiling to boards, isolated rust spots and some faint browning to the original leaves, but A LUXURIOUS VOLUME IN VERY FINE CONDITION, the binding virtually unworn, and the leaves and their elegant frames entirely clean and fresh. This is an impressively bound and presented copy of the superb second Elzevier edition of Horace with distinguished provenance. Louis Elzevier first published Daniel Heinsius&#39; edition of Horace in 1612, but, according to Willems, it was "inferior in all respects to the edition published by Bonaventure and Abraham in 1629," the present second edition. The first volume here contains Horace&#39;s complete works, the odes, epodes, satires, epistles, and the "De Arte Poetica." The second volume contains Heinsius&#39; notes to all of Horace&#39;s works, and the third contains our editor&#39;s extensive commentary to Horace&#39;s "Satires," explaining not only matters grammatical but also putting the author&#39;s delightful sketches into historical and philosophical context. A person of obviously gifted intelligence, Daniel Heinsius (1580-1655) was one of the most distinguished scholars of his day. He began giving lessons in Greek and Latin when he was 19, published a book at 20, and became professor of history and politics at Leyden when he was 26. He went on to become librarian and secretary of the university as well as official historian of Sweden. He left some Latin drama and poetry in imitation of the styles of various ancient authors, produced several new editions of Greek and Roman writers, and authored some humorous and satirical works. His study of the Latin satyrical genre had considerable influence on Ben Jonson and other English dramatists (see P. R. Sellin&#39;s "Daniel Heinsius and Stuart England"). Our former owner--and perhaps the man who commissioned the elaborate mounting of the leaves and the binding--was the eminent French bibliophile Léon Rattier, whose collection was renowned for its beauty and uniformly outstanding condition. Rattier was married to the cousin of Edmond Goncourt, one of the arbiters of taste in Belle Epoque Paris, and works from his library are always aesthetically pleasing. Books from the Rattier library made up much of the sale held at Drouot on 6 June 1984. Swedish collector Harald Wiens had a magnificent collection of Elzeviers: "Impressions des Elzeviers," a catalogue issued by Lengertz Antikvariat in 1952, listed 804 Elzevier editions from his library.
