        Elements of the Common Lawes of England

      1630. First Edition . BACON, Francis. The Elements of the Common Lawes of England. London: John More, 1630. Two volumes bound as one. Small quarto (5-3/4 by 7-1/4 inches), contemporary full blindstamped polished brown calf rebacked with original spine laid down, raised bands. red morocco spine label; pp. [24], 104; [8], 84. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $7500.First edition of this important collection of BaconÂ’s maxims of English law—“in the science of the grounds and mysteries of the law, he was exceeded by none”—exceedingly rare in contemporary calf .As Britain's Lord Chancellor, Francis Bacon excelled as ""one of the Makers of English Law. In all the spheres that a lawyer can occupy he was preeminent"" (Reams, 105). Yet the displeasure with which James I viewed his reforms prevented any of Bacon's legal works from being published during his lifetime. Central to this conflict was Bacon's belief ""in a large, modern, centralized nation-state and in a powerful, dominant monarchy. Bacon was against medieval ideas of feudalismÂ… just as much as he was against medieval notions in metaphysicsÂ… Bacon rejected Coke's theory of the supremacy of the common law, preferring to ascribe supremacy to natural law, or to what he went so far as to call reasonÂ… What was needed was the vision of the statesman, and this Bacon himself volunteered to contribute. The statesman was ready to agree that the judges should be honored as lions, but the lions should be 'under the throne.' It was this opinion that recommended him to James I, [yet] Bacon did not succeed in winning James's sympathy, even when he was closest to him"" (Encyclopedia of Philosophy I: 236). Thus the Elements, part of Bacon's noble plan to systematize and reform English law, was published posthumously. ""Had his proposition for amending the law been favorably received by James I, Bacon would doubtless have collected and illustrated most of the settled rules and maxims of the common law, for he considered such a work to be an essential basis upon which the law should repose"" (Marvin, 83). Among America's Founding Fathers, Jefferson held Bacon in especially high esteem. He considered Bacon, Locke and Newton to be ""the three greatest men that have ever lived, without any exception"" (February 15, 1789 letter to John Trumbull). While only 25 of the hundreds of maxims collected by Bacon were ever published, Elements stands acclaimed as ""one of the earliest, if the not the first, published collection of Maxims of the English LawÂ… in the science of the grounds and mysteries of the law, he was exceeded by none"" (Marvin, 83-84). The second work in this volume, The Use of the Law, printed in 1635, may be spurious; it first appeared in 1629 as the second part of another work by Sir John Doderidge entitled The Lawyer's Light (see Gibson 192). With both general title pages (Elements, and variant Collection), no priority established, and separate title page (Use of the Law). Woodcut-engraved ornamental initials and headpieces. Complete with Preface bound before To Her Sacred Majesty. With laid-in partial initial blank leaf (3 by 4-2/3 inches) containing early hand-lettered, ""Bacon's ElementsÂ…"" ESTC S100348. Gibson 193. Sweet & Maxwell, 166. Marvin, 83. See STC 1134. Early owner signature to Elements title page.Text very fresh, faint rubbing to boards. A handsome copy.

His highly regarded Heroicall Epistles, featured herein, “present him at his happiest and best” (Pforzheimer 302) and “often rise to a true poetic eleganceÂ… while some of his odes and lyrics are inspired by noble feeling and virile imagination” (Encyclopaedia Britannica). This collection includes Barons Warres, Englands Heroicall Epistles, Legends of Robert, Duke of Normandie and the sonnet series Idea. Containing engraved title page, individual title pages for EnglandÂ’s Heroicall Epistles and Legends of Robert. With woodcut engraved head- and tailpieces, title page vignettes, initials; without one preliminary leaf.

See Wing 7144B; Pforzheimer 300-309. Armorial bookplates of Arthur Dalrymple and J. Dawson Brodie.

Their place tended to be taken by books of practice which shortly and tersely described the procedure of all the different courts. One of the oldest...is the Attourney's Academy, written...in 1623.

        Historiarum sui Temporis...

      Geneva: heirs of Pierre de la Rovière, 1626-1630. Folio, five volumes bound in four, contemporary full vellum; with contemporary annotations to front blank of first volume. Early edition of the influential, and highly controversial, history of Europe by French luminary Jacques Auguste de Thou (1553-1617).A successful lawyer and career diplomat, de Thou remained devoted to the cultivation of the mind throughout his prolific political career. He amassed an impressive personal book collection and in 1593 was appointed director of the Royal Library. Access to such abundant printed and manuscript material, selected with characteristic diligence, allowed de Thou to write a foundational history of Europe spanning the years 1544 to 1607.De Thou was horrified by the unhappy history of religious intolerance and violence that plagued his lifetime, and his history reflects this (especially the treatment of the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre of 1572). The sections relating to the massacre were deemed too critical of the Holy See, and were accordingly placed on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum in 1609.This is an early printing (the first edition of the first 18 books was published in Paris 1604), and is complete in 138 books here bound in four stately volumes. De Thou, a classicist by training, wrote in Latin during an era of vernacular scholarship and forbade translation of his opus. Numerous editions, in several European languages, appeared throughout the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.This Geneva edition includes a detailed life of the author appended to the final volume. Modest intermittent browning. A very good set.

        Venezuela, cum parte Australi Novae Andalusiae

      1630. Questa bella mappa del Venezuela di Janssonius, pubblicata nell'Atlas Major, è basata sul lavoro di Hessel Gerritsz. La carta comprende anche le isole caraibiche da Aruba a Dominica e Tobago. Nell'interno, sono mostrate montagne, foreste, fiumi, mentre i toponimi sono riportati principalmente lungo le coste, rispecchiando le allora relativamente scarse conoscenze del territorio interno. Incisione su rame, bella coloritura coeva, due fori di tarlo in corrispondenza della piega centrale, lungo la quale si notano tracce di colla, nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. This Venezuela map by Jansson is based on the cartography of Hessel Gerritsz. It covers the Venezuelan coast of South America, east to the mouth of the Orinoco, and includes the offshore islands from Aruba through Dominica and Tobago. The fine engraving illustrates the mountains, forests, rivers and missions in the interior, but shows place names primarily along the coastlines owing to the relatively few explorations made into the interior. The map is embellished with title and distance scale cartouches, a pair of compass roses and a galleon in the sea. From the Latin edition of the Atlas Major. Copper engraving, contemporary old coloured, two worm holes along the center fold, otherwise in good condition. Amsterdam Amsterdam Van der Krogt (Vol. I) #9830 496 380

      London: John Haviland, 1630. Small quarto, a good copy but bound without the map mentioned on the title-page; contemporary calf, spine and joints wearing, label chipped. Early English edition of Botero's famous chronicle. Translated into several languages from the original Italian, it was widely read not only by travellers but also by 'the growing number of politicians who believed that geographical knowledge was essential to them' (Robert Shackleton, Modern Language Review, July 1948).This English edition in particular was one of the early compendia of geography to have real social and political impact, and was recognised as a vade mecum of early modern thought on the subject which included practical advice for travellers: to exercise but to avoid tennis, to dance if young, to take water with wine, and to carry few books - or preferably none - so as to avoid trouble with the Inquisition.First published in English as The travellers Breviat in 1601, a succession of later editions incorporated the newest information and revisions. The information relating to America is in the "Sixth Booke. Of America, commonly called West India" (pp. 625-36), and has notes on Columbus, Vespucci and Magellan. There are descriptions of some ten specific regions, including Mexico, Virginia, and "Nova Francia."The last book, entitled "The Seventh Booke. America Magellanica, or Peruana", features a description of South America including the lands beyond the Straits of Darien, and is positively envious of the gold and other minerals being gathered there by the Spanish. This section also includes a significant paragraph on Terra Australis, the land that 'was lately found out, and by our latest Cosmographers... as comprehending many large regions (viz.) Psitacorum regio, Terra del feugo (sic), Beac, Lucach, and Maletur... But what people inhabit them, what fashions they use, or what profitable commodity fit for the life of man they afford, it hath not yet beene by any man discovered'.Unfortunately, as is often the case with early printed works, the map called for on the title page is missing. STC lists some 10 copies but can confirm the presence of the map in only 3; it would seem to have been avidly pursued by map-collectors. Where present, the map is a later state of that issued in The World Encompassed by Sir F. Drake (London, 1628). Bound without the map.

        Introduction en l'art analytic. ou Nouuelle algebre de François Viete. [bound with:] Les cinq livres des Zetetiques de Francois Viette. [with:] Examen de la Traduction faicte par Anthoine Vasset, des cinq Livres des Zetetiques de M. Viette.

      Paris: J. Jacquin, 1629/1630. Very rare first edition of the first French translation and exposition of Viète's In artem analyticum isagoge (Tours, 1591), the earliest work on symbolic algebra, here bound with a first edition of Vaulezard's translation of Viète's Zeteticorum libri quinque (Tours, 1593), which gives examples of the application of his 'analytic art' to problems from Diophantus' Arithmetica. The third work is a scathing criticism of a slightly later translation of the Isagoge by Antoine Vasset, a response to criticisms Vasset had made of Vaulezard's translation in his own work. "The most important of Viète's many works on algebra... [In artem analyticem isagoge] also introduced the use of letters both for known quantities, which were denoted by the consonants B, C, D, and so on, and for unknown quantities, which were denoted by the vowels. Furthermore, in using A to denote the unknown quantity x, Viète sometimes employed A quadratus, A cubus ... to represent x2, x3, ... This innovation, considered one of the most significant advances in the history of mathematics, prepared the way for the development of algebra" (DSB XIV 19). Perhaps the most important part of the work is chapter 4, in which "he presents a mode of calculation carried out completely in terms of 'species' of numbers and calls it logistice speciosa - in contrast with calculation using determinate numbers, which is logistice numerosa. Of significance for the formation of the concepts of modern mathematics, Viète devotes the logistice speciosa to pure algebra, understood as the most comprehensive possible analytic art, applicable indifferently to numbers and to geometric magnitudes." "In 1593 Viète published Zeteticorum libri quinque, which he very probably had completed in 1591. In it he offered a sample of logistice speciosa and contrasted it directly with Diophantus' Arithmetica which, in his opinion, remained too much within the limits of logistice numerosa. In order to stress the parallelism of the two works, Viète ended the fifth book of his Zetetics with the same problem that concludes the fifth book of Diophantus' Arithmetica. In other parts of the book he takes series of problems from the Diophantus work" (ibid. 19-20). Vaulezard dedicates the Zetetics to Jean Beaugrand, who had close ties, both personally and intellectually, to Fermat and probably introduced him to Viete's analytic art. In 1631 Beaugrand edited a duodecimo edition of the Isagoge. Apart from their inclusion in Viète's Opera Mathematica (1646), neither of the works were published again in any language until the twentieth century. The first edition of In artem analyticem isagoge is among the rarest of the important works in the history of mathematics. The present works are almost as rare on the market, and are in fact even rarer than the Isagoge in institutional collections. There is no copy of any of the three offered works on COPAC (which lists five copies of the Isagoge), and there are five copies of L'art analytique and six of the other two works on OCLC (which lists a dozen or so copies of the Isagoge). OCLC: L'art analytique and Zetetiques (Brown, Harvard, Michigan, NYPL in US), Examen (Brown and Harvard only in US). 8vo (170 x 107 mm), contemporary limp vellum with coat of arms to front and rear boards, pp [1-8] 9-79; [2], 2, 8; [8], 9-66, 69-217, [3], quire I being one leaf ending on p. 66 with word FIN, text starting anew on K1, engraved figures in text as far as p.132, thereafter woodcut figures. Some gatherings browned, a few small water staines in the margin, contemporary ex-libris inscription to to title, in all a fine and untouched copy. Preserved in a custom half morocco clam shell box.

Françoise-Madeleine de Chaugy era nipote di Antoine de Toulongeon, governatore di Pignerol e marito di Françoise de Rabutin-Chantal, la figlia di Jeanne de Chantal, fondatrice insieme a François de Sales de l'Ordre de la Visitation. Fatta professione di fede nel 1630, essa divenne segretaria e biografa di Jeanne de Chantal (m. 1641), di cui pubblicò anche le Lettere nel 1644. Tre anni dopo fu eletta priora del monastero di Annecy en 1647. La Chaugy giocò poi un ruolo determinante nella canonizzazione (1665) di François de Sales (m. 1610). Scomunicata per un breve periodo nel 1668, fu inseguito nominata superiora dei monasteri del suo ordine a Crest, Carpentras e Torino. OCLC, 367530365. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        COMMENTARIA IN ARTEM MEDICINALEM GALENI.

      1630. Venezia Antonium Brogiollum 1630 4° Pagine 1 carta bianca + 48 non numerate + 1638 numerate su due colonne + 1 carta bianca. Legatura coeva in pergamena. Titolo calligrafato al dorso. Lievissime fioriture. Ottima copia.Seconda edizione (la prima del 1612). Noto anche come Sanctorius o Santorio Santorii o Sanctorius da Padova o Santorre Santario. Studiò all'Università di Padova dove si laureò in medicina nel 1582. Dopo la laurea esercitò in Croazia e alla corte di Massimiliano re di Polonia. Tornato nella Repubblica Veneta nel 1599, si stabilì a Venezia dove esercitò la medicina pratica con grande consenso e successo e dove fece amicizia con Sarpi, Sagredo e Galileo. Il suo adattamento del pendolo alla pratica medica fu probabilmente ispirato dalle discussioni con Galileo sugli esperimenti di quest'ultimo con i pendoli del 1602; lo strumento fu descritto in un libro pubblicato da Santorio alla fine di quell'anno o agli inizi del 1603. Nel 1611 divenne professore di medicina teorica all'Università di Padova. In quella città pubblicò descrizioni di congegni termometrici che probabilmente avevano tratto ispirazione dal termoscopio di Galileo. Nel 1624 rinunciò alla cattedra per dedicarsi alla pratica privata. Fu un pioniere nell'impiego delle misurazioni fisiche in medicina; il suo dispositivo più famoso fu una grande bilancia usata per studiare le trasformazioni metaboliche in soggetti sperimentali tra i quali vi fu Galileo. Fu seguace del metodo sperimentale di cui comprese l'importanza e la necessità anche per le discipline biologiche. Considerato il fondatore della iatromeccanica, fu autore di importanti studi sul metabolismo e sulla termoregolazione umana dimostrando l'esistenza della perspiratio insensibilis ed introducendo in medicina l'uso del termometro clinico che ideò. Santorio inventò altri strumenti come il pulsilogio o pulsametro capace di tradurre in numero l'apprezzamento individuale della frequenza del battito cardiaco ed altri congegni atti a determinare con esattezza matematica i parametri vitali umani.

London: A. Islip for J. Norton & R. Whitakers, 1633. First edition of Thomas Johnson's expanded and corrected version of Gerarde's Herball (1st ed.: 1597), the most famous of all English herbals. "Many errors made by Gerard in his text and in the identification of the illustrations were corrected by the apothecary and botanist Thomas Johnson (d. 1644), of London, who prepared an expanded edition of The Herball that first appeared in 1633…Johnson's painstaking revision of Gerard's herbal constituted in itself a valuable contribution to botany and to the art of the printed book. He added the descriptions of many new plants with illustrations, some of them borrowed from the botanical texts published by Christophe Plantin in Antwerp, in this way bringing the total number of engravings to 2,776. Any new passages were carefully marked with special symbols so that the reader could distinguish them from the original text… "The title-page of The Herball is particularly attractive. It was executed by John Payne (1607-1647), one of the most talented engravers of the period…In the upper part of Payne's work we see a luxuriant garden with the goddesses Ceres and Pomona on either side. Below them are the fathers of botany, Theophrastus and Dioscorides, while in the lower section two imposing vases filled with flowers surround a portrait of Gerard, who is shown facing in the opposite direction to that of the portrait by Rogers. The vase on the left is crowned with a bunch of bananas as a tribute to Johnson… "One of the most significant additions made by Johnson was his chapter on the 'Maracot' or 'Grandilla' as it was called at the time (actually the passion-flower). He includes a full page illustration (p. 1592) and refers the reader to Monardes for more information on this exotic species…In the long preface Johnson traces the history of the botanical sciences, analyzing the contributions of celebrated figures from the mythical King Solomon to William Turner…He closes with some critical remarks on John Gerard and the origins of his herbal."-Tomasi & Willis, An Oak Spring Herbaria, p. 84. An uncommonly nice and crisp copy. Bookplates of John Charles Bigham, Viscount Mersey, Bignor Park and Oliver Howard. ❧ Garrison-Morton 1820-(1st ed. of 1597)-"The most important edition of his book is the second, published by T. Johnson in 1633." Henrey, I, pp. 48-54-"Johnson produced an edition that was noteworthy for its many corrections, improvements, and additions" & no. 155. Hunt 223.
