        Quintus Horatius Flaccus. Accedunt nunc Danielis Heinsii De Satyra Horatiana Libri duo, in quibus totum Poëtae institutum & genius expenditur. Cum ejusdem in omina Poëtae Animaduersionibus, longe auctioribus.

      Lugduni Batavorum Ex Officina Elzeviriana 1629 - Small 12mo, 127 x 78 mms., pp. [xvi], 239 [240 blank], 296, [2], 250, including engraved title-page, divisional title-page for each part, contemporary vellum, title in ink on spine; binding a little soiled, but a very good copy. Heinsius (1580 - 1655) spent all his adult life in Leiden, and he became professor of poetics at Leiden University in 1603. He published an edition of Horace's complete works in 1612, with the Elzevirs, but this is the first separate edition of the two satires, with extended notes and commentary. This is the edition of Horace that is thought to have had some influence on Ben Jonson and it is routinely described as "famous," which might be said of almost all Heinsius' editions or Elzevir imprints. Sir Thomas Browne is supposed to have said of this edition, "On my Coffin, when in the Grave, I desire may be deposited in its Leather Case or Coffin my Pocket-Elzivir-Horace comes viae vitaeque dulcis et utilis, worn out with, and by me." Willems 314. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Amsterdam - This stunning atlas includes maps of the Western Hemisphere, Africa, Asia, Europe, individual European countries, Malta, Tartary, East Indies, Russia, Persia, the Holy Land and regional maps of Spain, Germany, France and the United Provinces. Several maps include various views (Sicily, the Peloponnesian Peninsula, and Crete). Nearly all maps include decorative cartouches, often with various coats of arms and heraldic crests. The title page features the globe (showing the Old World), with Atlas holding up the sky and the sun streaming in with original gold highlights. Most notable however, is the fantastic double hemisphere world map. The beautifully detailed map includes views of the North and South poles, and is decorated with allegorical scenes illustrating the seasons, the elements and the zodiac. Particularly popular, is the drunken scene in the lower right featuring Bacchus being carried. The map itself shows California as an island and misshapen Great Lakes. Incomplete coastlines name New Zealand. This is the second state of the map, with cherubs in the cusps and a distinct border. Frederick de Wit (1629/30--1706) was one of the foremost cartographers and map sellers of the Dutch Golden Age. Based in Amsterdam, he began with a small printing shop in 1654 and soon became internationally known for his city plans and wall maps of the world. His most famous work is the "Theatrum Praecipuarum Totius Europae," published after 1694, which contained 132 plans and views of European and Asian cities. By 1671, he was producing large folio atlases for both his shop and individual patrons that could contain anywhere between 15 and 150 maps. Today, these atlases grace the collections of many museums and institutions as evidence of the vibrant cartographic trade in Amsterdam in the middle- and late-17th century. Atlas with 104 double page maps and title page in full original color and an index. Folio, measures 22" x 13.5". Bound in original vellum-wrapped wood with gold stamped title and spine; a.e.g. No printed date or title. Binding separating at spine. Ink notations on title page. Creasing and minor tearing to a few maps. Minor scattered stains and foxing, mainly to margins. Maps are generally in excellent condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Novissima et accuratissima totius Americae descriptio

      Amsterdam. unbound. Map. Engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 19 1/4" x 22 3/4". This map of the Western Hemisphere is one of the finest and most replicated examples of Dutch cartography. Drawn in the late 17th century, this early state of the map illustrates a number of then-held beliefs about the geography of the New World now known to be incorrect. California is depicted as an island, Great Lakes remain inaccurately open, and rivers exist where there are none. Moreover, the map's labeling combines the names of factual cities with more mythic ones, gleaned largely from Native American lore via the Spanish. In the lower left-hand corner, a cartouche depicts Native Americas harvesting crops and performing other every-day activities around a sign bearing the map's name. Above in the top left corner, angels carry a short text describing America that is inscribed on a round support. Eleven beautifully-rendered ships scattered throughout the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans indicate the travels of Western explorers. The map is in good condition, with small stain upper left corner. Early repair to center fold outside of plate line. Frederick de Wit (1629/30--1706) was one of the foremost cartographers and map sellers of the Dutch Golden Age. Based in Amsterdam, he began with a small printing shop in 1654 and soon became internationally known for his city plans and wall maps of the world.

Cum novo insuper & locupletissimo Rerum & verborum Indice. Accedunt & alla nonjulla Petroniorum Fragment aVetervmque Poetarvm Ctalecta, Svipici AEquve Vita et Satyra

      Geneva. Excudebat Iohannes Mercerius, 1629. 4to, 233 x 162 mms., pp. [xi], 44, 69 [70 blank, 71 - 84 Index], 430, misbound, with the Fragmenta following page 44 and the note to the reader, contemporary full vellum, with yapp edges, and the contemporary inscription on the title-page "Sum ex Libris Cornely van Lodensteyn" on the title-page. This is a rather interesting provenance in that van Lodensteyn (1552 - 1636), the twelfth of fourteen children, was a magistrate in Delft, where he died. Later in the 17th century, his descendants emigrated to New Jersey. This edition of the Satyricon was edited by Theodorus de Juges. The text ultimately derives from one manuscript source, that of Scaliger, and the texts of Tornaesius (1575) and Pithoeus (1577, 1587). While scholars and critics alike have been generous in their admiration for the narrative, some of the naughty bits were troublesome to an earlier generation, e. g., the German historian Barthold Georg Niebuhr (1776 - 1831), who commented in 1821 in a paper on Curtius and Petronius, "The disgusting indecencies of which the remains of Petronius are full (although the inoffensive, nay, the pure predominates even in amount) give him so bad a name, that he who confesses an intimate acquaintance with the poem, and expresses gratification with it, exposes himself to a severe judgment and affords a good opportunity for sanctimonious hypocrisy.... It is very probable that the great majority of those who have, since the days of the past, regaled themselves with this work, have done so from a corrupt heart...." For the genealogy of the early if not first owner, Cornelius van Lodensteyn, see Genealogies of New Jersey Families (2010).

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.

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.

      Oxford: William Turner and Thomas Hughes, 1629. A very early printing, being the fourth, revised by the author. With an engraved architectural title-page, several engraved head or tail pieces and an engraved 12 line initial. 8vo, full contemporary brown calf, the covers with double fillet lines at the borders in blind, the spine with blind ruled raised bands. [xx], 807, [2] pp. A complete and well preserved copy, crisp, unsophisticated and unpressed of this very scarce and important book. The contemporary binding worn and with normal evidence of age, some expected toning. Occasional antique ownership and marginal notations of previous owners. VERY SCARCE AND AN IMPORTANT EARLY ENGLISH TRAVEL WORK PROVIDING A STUDY OF AMERICA. A very early printing of this important encyclopedic attempt to describe the peoples and regions of the world in meticulous detail. While over half of the book describes Europe and the Holy Land and such far away locales as Africa, India, China and Japan, there is a section on the Americas which is an extremely early English account of the new found land. Heylyn states his disapproval of the name America, thinking it stresses the importance of Vespucci far too much. He thought that Cabot and Columbus both deserved greater recognition and that the name “New World” would suffice. The work was not unbiased and was influenced by both politics and religion. It is an important milestone in the area of geographical or travel writing. Largely drawn from Heylyn’s lectures at Oxford, it offers a clear representation of European knowledge of the rest of the world at the dawn of the 17th century. First published in 1621 the book offered a view of the America that the Pilgrims expected to settle when they set out to cross the Atlantic. Several years later, in 1652, Heylyn would expand this work into his groundbreaking COSMOGRAPHIE, considered a masterpiece of the genre.

        Genevan Psalter in German translation; Psalms in German; Calendarium biblicum perpetuum, Decorated manuscript with musical notation By Ambrosius Lobwasser, Martin Luther and Christopher Reicheldt

      1629 : ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT ON VELLUM in German, The Netherlands (The Hague), dated 1629, 161 x 100 mm., 180 folios, original pagination in Arabic numerals, complete (collation, i-xv4 xvi6 xvii-xl4 xli2 xlii-xlv4), copied by one scribe in a Fraktur script in up to 34 lines in two columns, with musical notation on five-line staves, numerous calligraphic initials, four decorative head and tail pieces, FIVE PAGES WITH FULL PENWORK BORDERS with delicate foliate designs, THREE FULL-PAGE DIAGRAMS of the compass and winds. BINDING: Bound in the Netherlands in its original elaborately gold-tooled pointillé red leather fan binding over wooden boards, straps missing, spine cracked along the center and fragile, and joints beginning to crack, slight scuffing to both covers. TEXT: This outstanding example of seventeenth-century calligraphy is signed by the scribe, “A. W.”, almost certainly Andre Wecheln, a German who became the first Postmaster-General of Sweden (his work is known in one other manuscript of Protestant texts). Texts include Ambrosius Lobwasser’s German translation of the metrical Genevan Psalater (intended for congregational singing), with Martin Luther’s translation of the Psalms and his version of the Ten Commandments, and Christopher Reicheldt's calendar which guided systematic reading of the Bible. Both were certainly based on printed books (cf. the Lobwasser Psalters, Johann Cause in 1614, Hanau, VD 17:612588X, also Amberg 1610, VD 17 547:651657K, and Neustadt an der Hardt, 1606, VD 17 1:053093T; and Christoph Reicheldt, Calendarium biblicum perpetuum, 1620 by Johann Glück in Leipzig, VD17 23:280492H): ff. 1-164v, Psalmen Davids, Psalms 1-150, in two columns, in the main column, the metrical Psalm in Lobwasser’s translation, and in a narrower outer column the Psalms in Martin Luther’s German translation, almost all with musical notation, followed by Ten Commandments, Canticle of Simeon, and Alphabetical table; ff. 165-180v, incipit, “CALENDARIUM BIBLICUM/ PERPETUUM … mit fleiß beschreiben/ Durch A.W.F.S." PROVENANCE: Copied in The Hague in 1629, dated on the title page, ff. 1 and 165; f. 2v, the preface supplies a date, September 20, 1629, and notes it was copied in The Hague, or Graffenhag, by a scribe who signs his name “A.W.", “A.W.S.” and “A.W.F.S.”, who can almost certainly be identified as Andre Wecheln (or Anders Wechel), who signed another manuscript with his full name (see, TM 514); P. Müller Simonis, 1887; Private European Collection. CONDITON: overall in very good condition, slight stain upper outer corner first nine leaves, some folios creased, and quires 22-24 loose. Full description and photographs available (TM 634).

        Effigies Alberti Dureri Norici, Pictoris, et Sculptoris

      Antwerp: Henricus Hondius, 1629. Engraving. Image measures 8.5 x 6.5". This handsome portrait is of the famed German painter and engraver Albrecht Dürer. Drawn after a painting by Tommaso di Andrea Vincidor, an Italian Renaissance painter and architect who trained with Raphael, the portrait shows Dürer wearing a fur-trimmed coat and cap and looking pensively off to his left. Below the oval portrait is a trompe-l'oeil banner nailed to the wall that bears the title and description of the image. The print is a dark impression in excellent condition with no chips or tears. Andries Jacobsz Stock (1580--1648) was a Baroque engraver, printmaker and illustrator who worked as an assistant to Henrik Hondius I. This scarce portrait of Dürer honors one of the most celebrated German artists of all time.

      Appresso gli Illustr. Sig. Pietro, Alvise, & Lorenzo Brag. [= Bragadin], Venice 1629 - In Hebrew with Judeo Italian, which is Italian but using the Hebrew alphabet (in this case with vocalization/Nikud/Vowels). Extensive repairs by master paper restorer. 26 leaves. The pages are longer than the platen on which I scanned the images so the images are cut off, not the actual pages. In 1609, a Haggadah of singular beauty was published in Venice by Israel ben David Zifroni, a printer and copy editor of Hebrew books in Italy and Switzerland. Dozens of woodcut illustrations of the Passover ritual, many executed as miniature vignettes, provided a striking visual imagery. [Inscription on top of title page:] Fig[lio] Azaria mio caro Dio mello possa guarire promessa e cosi sia Amen. The approximate translation is: My dear son Azaria may God heal him/ Amen, let it be, Amen The haggada, printed in three versions (Judeo-German [Yiddish], Judeo-Italian, and Judeo-Spanish [Ladino]), all using the Hebrew alphabet for the Yiddish, Judeo Italian and Ladino, proved very popular and was reprinted twenty years later, in 1629 and this is the edition offered here. Seder Haggadah shel Pesah. It includes Leone Modena¿s commentary (Tzli Esh), based on Isaac Abrabanel¿s earlier commentary, Zevah Pesah. Among its visual highlights are a very attractive architectural border surrounding every page of text, woodcut initials enclosing miniature figures and scenes, and large woodcut illustrations placed at the top or bottom of almost every page, arranged in a biblical cycle that begins with Abraham and later focuses on the narratives actually recalled in the text of the Hagada. It includes the famous 13-panel illustration of the stages of the Seder, and the ten-panel depiction of the ten plagues, which became fixtures of illustrated Hagadot after their first introduction in the 1609 Venice edition. Title page and each page throughout with decorative architectural woodcut border. Modena¿s commentary first appeared in the 1629 Venetian edition; his commentary is printed within the architectural columns (alternating at times with the translation of the text). Yaari 41. Yudlov55. Expert paper repairs, chiefly marginal, generally not affecting text or border, but in a few instances some of the commentary in the margins has some loss of text. Usual spotting and staining, signs of ceremonial use. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

In 1597 Lord Burleigh asked Camden to write a history of Elizabeth. He started the first part in 1607, and completed it in 1615. The second part - from 1589 to her death in 1603 - was begun in 1617 and published posthumously in 1625 in Leiden and 1627 in London.

        The Two Bookes of Sr Francis Bacon, Of The Proficience and Advancement of Learning, Divine and Hvmane. To the King

      London : Printed [by Nicholas Okes] for William Washington, 1629. Quarto, 7 x 5 inches. Second edition. A-Z4, Aa-Tt4. The title page of this copy has been skillfully mounted. Internally the book is in good contemporary condition. It is bound in full nineteenth century calf. This is a very nice and solid copy of an important book. Bacon [...] set himself down to work on his philosophy, that scheme for men's education which had been in his mind so long. Planning now in earnest and committing his plans to paper, Bacon called this first book the Advancement of Learning. [...] Bacon wrote out a preliminary brief statement, [...] 'The Interpretation of Nature, or the Kingdom of Man.' Nature, to Bacon, was man's true kingdom, neglected for centuries by churchmen who looked for a kingdom in heaven, or by scholiasts who despised the world about them and the evidence of their senses. Yet in order to attain this new kingdom of nature, men must draw fresh maps of exploration. 'Those who aspire not to guess and divine,' wrote Bacon, 'but to discover and to know ... who propose to examine and dissect the nature of this very world itself, to go to facts themselves for everything.'" (quoted from Francis Bacon The Temper of a Man, Catherine Drinker Bowen, page 105)
