      1629. Doderidge (Doddridge), Sir John [1555-1628]. 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.

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'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's suspicious death (purportedly from poison), "Argenis" achieved critical acclaim, immediate popularity, and lasting literary influence. According to DNB, "Fenelon's 'Telemachus' 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'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'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'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' 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's complete works, the odes, epodes, satires, epistles, and the "De Arte Poetica." The second volume contains Heinsius' notes to all of Horace's works, and the third contains our editor's extensive commentary to Horace's "Satires," explaining not only matters grammatical but also putting the author'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'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.

        Rerum Memorabilium Sive Deperditarum Pars Prior [-Posterior] Commentarius Illustrata, et Locis Prope Innumeris Postremum Aucta Ab Henrico Salmuth

      Francofurti, [i.e. Frankfurt], [1629]-1631]: Sumptibus Godefridi Tampachii. Quarto. Two volumes in one. [12], 350, [22]. [8], 313pp, [17]. Engraved title to Vol I by S. Furck, featuring scenes from the New World. Contemporary blind-ruled English calf, with paper lettering-piece '65' stamped to top compartment of spine. Rubbed, some splitting to joints and loss to edges, chipping to spine at head and foot. Endpapers sprung with some lifting of leather, revealing binders waste consisting of fragments, including title, of Wadsworth's Further Observations of the English Spanish Pilgrime, concerning Spaine...(London, 1630). Text browned, with some occasional marginal worming. The Hopetoun copy, with bookplate to FEP and 12-line bibliographical notation signed by John Hope to blank-fly, dated 19th August 1673. John Hope (1650-82), father of Charles Hope, first Earl of Hopetoun, perished in the wreck of the frigate HMS Gloucester off Yarmouth after ensuring the safety of James, then Duke of York and later King James VII and II. Sold at auction in 1889 by Sothebys, the Hopetoun library was founded by John's father, Sir James Hope, in the 1640s. Little is known of the bibliographical pursuits of his short-lived son, but the extensive notation to the fly-leaf of this volume suggests a greater participation in the Hopetoun library than mentioned in Quaritch's Contributions Towards a Dictionary of English Book Collectors (London, 1921). Guido Panciroli (1523-1599), jurist and antiquary. A student of technology ancient and modern, Panciroli's two volume work examines respectively the forgotten discoveries and investions of the ancients, and those made in the modern age.

        Effigies Alberti Dureri Norici, Pictoris, et Sculptoris

      Henricus Hondius, Antwerp 1629 - 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. Engraving. Image measures 8.5 x 6.5".

      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."

        Atlas

      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).

On a suivi le texte de l'édition corrigée par Navagerius et imprimée par Plantin en 1578. C'était la plus correcte qui eût paru jusque alors. On corrigea quelques fautes qui s'y trouvaient encore, au moyen de divers manuscrits, et particulièrement des notes que Gruter avait faites sur les manuscrits de la bibliothèque Palatine. Ces notes furent communiquées par le célèbre Jean Pergens." (BERARD, p. 60).

Quelques rares annotations manuscrites anciennes. Mors un peu frottés, pièces de titre affadies, sinon un agréable exemplaire.

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.
