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

ALPINI, P.
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.Provenance: Bookplate of Edmond Bonnet French botanist and The Horticultural Society of New York, bequest Kenneth K.

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

Pemble, William (1592?-1623)
London: Printed by R. Young for John Bartlet, at the signe of the gilt Cup in Cheape-side, 1629. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. 8vo. [8], 165 pp. including full-page woodcut plate bound as frontispiece (intended to be placed between pp. 50/51). COLLATION: A-Y4, without the final blank leaf, otherwise COMPLETE. Provenance: blindstamps of the now-defunct Theological Institute Connecticut (from thence to Case Memorial Library, with ink-stamp). Attractive recent half calf antique, marbled boards, five raised bands on spine, compartments gilt, red morocco label in the second. First Edition of this highly curious Elizabethan theological work, illustrated with a strange and wonderful woodcut of the "Vision of the Golden Candlestick" (Zech. 4). Rare on the market: this is the only copy known to us in private ownership; the last copy on the market was defective (sale at Sotheby's London on May 6, 1974, lot 73 - to Maggs). <br/><br/> This interpretation of Zechariah (I-IX) is perhaps Pemble's final work: "He died in the flower of his age, as he was making his lectures on the prophecy of Zechariah (finishing but nine chapters of fourteen)... of a burning fever" (SOURCE: Fuller, History of the Worthies of England, vol. 3, p. 258). Published posthumously, as were all Pemble's works, through the offices of former tutor Richard Capel, who edited this work and signed the preface. "He appears to have been a good Hebrew scholar, and employs his learning very advantageously, particularly in expounding the book of Zechariah" (SOURCE: Orme, Bibliotheca Biblica, p. 345). <br/><br/> "Pe … [Click Below for Full Description]

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'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's Institutes are quoted at some length for their definition of monopolies.

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's in November 1903. Beer has titled this painting "The Finding … [Click Below for Full Description]

Scilla, Augustino [Agostino]
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 'vain speculation,' 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 'to doubt things is the best and only way to begin to know them, even approximately,' 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

[MANUSCRIPTS - THIRTY YEARS' WAR].
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.

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).

HUYGENS, Christiaan.
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/> ❧ 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-Hono … [Click Below for Full Description]

Callot, Jacques (1592 - Nancy - 1635)
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).
