        Davids hainous Sinne. Heartie Repentance. Heavie Punishment

      London, Printed by Tho. Cotes, for John Bellamie 1631. - Small 8vo., pp. 78, wanting the terminal blank; tiny restoration to blank upper corner of title-page and lower corner of A4-5, A2 shaved at outer margin with the loss of a few letters, else a handsome copy in early nineteenth-century straight grain olive morocco, joints slightly rubbed; Thomas Thorpe's pencilled note ('fine copy, extremely rare 8/8/0'), the Bute copy with his Cardiff Castle bookplate; bookplates of J. O. Edwards and Robert S Pirie.First and only edition of Fuller's first book, and his only volume of verse. It is a three-part poem written in a variation of rhyme royal, recounting King David's adultery with Bathsheba and its consequences.Shunning the tale's opportunities for erotic (and later military) description, Fuller instead 'anticipates Milton's method of appropriating the matter of Biblical narrative: he interiorises epic action by making internal moral deliberation the sphere of heroic accomplishment' (Raymond-Jean Fontaine, in The Sacred and Profane in English Renaissance Literature). When David catches sight of Bathsheba bathing, Fuller is careful to remind his readers that however beautiful she may be, she is surpassed by God's creation:   Her skinne, as is the skie not halfe so cleare,   Her curious veines, for colour come not neare   Those azure streaks, that in the Heavens appeare.Lest any have been inadvertently titillated, Fuller warns 'let no lustfull thoughts lodge in thy minde they must be kill'd'. The story goes on to relate how David had Bathsheba's husband, Uriah, killed, how he was reproved by 'plainedealing' Nathan the prophet, and how dire consequences fell upon him and his children. Rare. ESTC records only ten copies: six in the UK, four in North America (Folger, Huntington, Harvard, Yale).STC 11463; Gibson and Keynes I. Language: English

Première édition de la seconde partie des Medicinae catholicae, qui constitue un ensemble autonome, et première édition du Pulsus seu nova, première défense (ésotérique) des théories révolutionnaires d'Harvey sur la circulation du sang. The first to support Harvey's De motu cordis in print. Fludd was trained anatomist and had watched Harvey cary out dissections at the Royal College of Physicians. In his later writings he referred to those dissections, and he was the first to support Harvey's De motu cordis in print, thinking that the views of his friend confirmed his own cosmological concept of the circulation of the blood publihed in 1629. The Medicina catholica summarizes Fludd's cosmological views and then goes into the weapon-salve problem and magnetism at great length. Restauration en marge de la page 301/302, nombreuses galeries de vers avec atteintes au texte dans la première moitié du volume, taches d'encre sur une double page, toutefois un exemplaire attractif dans sa première reliure.

Translated by Constantijn L'Empereur (1591?1648) , a promiment Dutch Hebraist. The translation ?is coupled with an attempt at refuting the positions and views of Abravanel and Alshekh. The goal is ?to give a complete understanding of the satisfaction of Christ. ? Both Abravanel and Alshekh deal extensively with the nature of the Messiah and the messianic era. Their commentaries were extremely well-known to both Jewish and Christian audiences. Alshekh, in his Bible commentaries, resorted to many allegorical and spiritual interpretations. Moreover, Alshekh himself had been influenced by Abravanel, the statesman, philosopher, and exegete, who fled Spain for Italy in 1492. Abravanel?s lucid style, influenced by Renaissance literary trends, and his elaborate treatment of issues of common concern to both Christians and Jews, together with his citation of Christian views, made him, from a Christian Hebraist perspective, possibly the most significant of Jewish authors, apart from Maimonides. ?

A Treatise was first published in 1547 and saw almost as many editions in the 16th century as the Bible. "In his Treatise, Baldwin [adapted] the precepts of the philosophers to the practical needs of would-be governors and gentlemen with out robbing them of the mystique - the impression they gave of skimming the surface of unplumbed esoteric depths - that made them attractive."

Ownership signature on the verso of the title-page, dated 1663, and again on the first page of text.

        De praefecto Urbis liber

      Tip. Rev. C. Ap. 1631 In - 4°; 1 c. di tav. (frontespizio figurato inciso su rame che raffigura un prefetto al cavallo), pp. (8), 96, completo delle 5 tavole incise su rame, alcuni legni tipografici (tra cui le api barberini); la dedica è a Taddeo Barberini. Manca pp. 33 - 34, che dovrebbe essere bianca. Legatura in piena pergamena coeva con titolo manoscritto al dorso. Felice Contelori scrive questo trattato storico sulla figura del Prefetto della città, nell?occasione in cui Taddeo Barberini viene insignito dallo zio Urbano VIII della carica di Prefetto di Roma, carica che per lugna tradizione fu attribuito alla famiglia Della Rovere; l?investitura avvenne nella cappella Paolina al Quirinale. Contelori era custode della Biblioteca Vaticana, e come indica prima del sommario attinse a molti manoscritti inediti della Biblioteca e dell?Archvio. DBI: ?Nel 1631, in occasione dell?assunzione alla carica di prefetto di Roma di Taddeo Barberini, il C. dette alle stampe, a Roma, il primo dei suoi lavori, nati dalla consultazione e dallo studio dei fondi archivistici dell?Archivio Vaticano, il De praefecto Urbis, che egli dedicò al Barberini. Si occupava di questa tematica almeno dal 1629, quando aveva risposto ad un quesito sul diritto di precedenza goduto dal prefetto dell?Urbe e probabilmente già in precedenza, da quando cioè se ne interessava Urbano VIII, che nel 1624 aveva concluso la convenzione della devoluzione del ducato di Urbino alla S. Sede alla morte di Francesco Maria Della Rovere, il quale deteneva la carica di prefetto dell?Urbe?. I capitoli: De urbanae praefecturae origine et antiquitate, De urbis praefecti indumentis et ritu, De praefecti officio, De urbanae praefecturae potestate ac iurisdictione, Urbanae praefecturae praerogativae, Series praefectorum a Tomulo rege, usque ad ac tempore.

        The historie of Great Britaine under the conquests of the Romans, Saxons, Danes and Normans. Their originals, manners, habits, warres, coines, and seales: with the successions, lives, acts, and issues of the English monarchs from Iulius Caesar, unto the raigne of King Iames, of famous memorie.

      Third edition of this archetypal early English history, a variant of the 1631 edition. Printed with all the archaic and "curious" spellings one could hope for in such a work (e.g., "Britaine" and "ye" on the title-page), each page bears both roman and italic types; the text contains a number of intricate initials, headpieces, and tailpieces, and is adorned with detailed woodcuts of kings, their coats of arms, and the seals and coinage of their reigns. The illustrations are as notable as the typography for quaint charm. Speed (1552-1629), a cartographer and historian, published the Historie as a continuation of his Theatre of Great Britaine, both works being listed in the table of contents of this work, which explains the volume's peculiar pagination and arrangement.=> An epitome of the "antiquarian" both in form and content, this is a marvelous compendium of royal history and lore.

        Saint Bernard his meditations, or, sighes, sobbes, and teares upon Our Saviours passion, in memoriall of his death; also his motives to mortification, with other meditations.

      London: Printed by E[lizabeth] A[llde] for Robert Allot 12mo (14 cm; 5.5"). 2 parts in 1 vol. I: [7] ff., 439, [1] pp. (p. [440] blank); II .[3] ff., 243, [3] pp. (pp. [244–[46] blank; numbers 127–36 omitted in the sequence).. 1631–32 All early English editions of St. Bernard's Meditations are rare. This translation of his Tractatus de interiori domo self-identies as "The third edition, much amended by W.P. Mr. of Arts in Cambridge." That is, it is the third edition of W.P.'s translation, the first of which appeared in 1611 and was proceeded by printings of earlier translations in 1499 and 1525. The identity of "W.P." remains unknown and a cataloguer at Harvard dissents regarding Bernard's authorship, writing: "Neither part is by Saint Bernard: the first piece in pt. [2] is a translation of Meditationes de interiori homine, also wrongly ascribed to Hugh of St. Victor." Searches of WorldCat, NUC, and ESTC locate only five copies in U.S. libraries, one having been deaccessioned and being the copy offered here. Harvard notes of its copy: "Imperfect: lower half of the t.p. containing the edition statement and imprint wanting." The printer Elizabeth Allde was the widow of printer Edward Allde, who was active from 1584 to his death in 1628; he was successor to his printer father John Allde (variously Allde, Aldaye, Alde or Aldye), fl. 1555–92, a Scottish stationer and printer. Elizabeth was active from 1628 to 1633, at which latter date she passed the business to Richard Oulton (or Olton), her son-in-law. He continued the firm for another ten years only. Provenance: On the front free endpaper: "From the Hon. Rev. Lowther Barrington, Buckinghamshire, Eng., 1835. Recent full brown calf, late 17th-century style; raised bands accented with gilt rules above and below each band, modest blind fillet on boards, red spine label.

      A Rouen: Iean Osmont Folio. [6] ff., 56 pp., [1] f., 564, 52 pp., [22] ff.. 1631 First edition of this sought-after history of Normandy. Preliminary leaves include a dedication; publication statement; a sonnet, epigrams, and an ode to the history of Normandy; "Discours de la Normandie" (35 pp.); "De l'ancienne Normandie" (35–56 pp.); and a genealogy of the Dukes of Normandy. Rear matter includes an index (22 ff.) and a list (52 pp.) of the Lords of Normandy and other French provinces who took part in the conquest of Jerusalem under Robert Courte-heuze, Duke of Normandy, and Godefroy du Buillon, Duke of Lorraine. An early owner has mounted on the title-page an armorial plate bearing an image of the two leopards of Normandy on a shield superimposed by a crown, the whole flanked by attendants holding long branches (palms? laurels?) in one hand and the shield in the other. Handsomely decorated with engraved initials and tailpieces. Recent deep walnut full calf old style, by Grace Bindings (signed in blind at inner area of rear cover, lower turn-in); round spine with raised bands accented in gilt and with blind-tooled devices in compartments, oxblood leather gilt-lettered title-label, blind fillets extending onto covers from each band to terminate in trefoils and covers framed in double blind fillets. Ex–Mercantile Library of Philadelphia with stamps, mostly faint, including to title-page; title-page re-margined along top and inner edge with an interior hole filled also (no words affected). Title-page with early inked ownership initials; a few other instances of early inked notations within text. Some leaves chipped, others mildly to moderately waterstained. Armorial device mounted to title-page, as noted; we cannot be sure what this covers, but it is elegant!

        Lucans Pharsalia: Or the civill warres of Rome, betweene Pompey the great, and Julius Caesar. The whole tenne bookes, Englished by Thomas May ... the second edition, corrected, and the annotations inlarged by the author.

      London: Thomas Jones (pr. by Aug. Mathews) Small 8vo. Engr. frontis., [146] ff.. 1631 [bound with] May, Thomas. A continvation of the subiect of Lucan's historicall poem till the death of Ivlivs Cæser the 2d edition corrected and amended. London: James Boler, 1633. Small 8vo. A–K8(-K8); [79 of 80] ff. May's esteemed English verse translation in its second edition, following Thomas Jones's first printing of 1627. Lucan (A.D. 39–65), born in Cordoba, Spain, and raised in Rome, was the grandson of the elder Seneca, nephew of the younger Seneca, and the brother of the Gallio mentioned in Acts 18; he published the Pharsalia in A.D. 62 or 63, but it seems likely that his poetic talent aroused the jealousy of the vain Nero, as he forbade him to write or even plead in the courts, and then later compelled him to commit suicide for alleged treason. The editio princeps of the Pharsalia was printed in Rome by Sweynheym and Pannartz in 1469; Christopher Marlowe published the first English translation of any part of the Pharsalia, his rendition of the first book, in 1600, with a 1614 effort by Sir Arthur Gorges being the only other such to precede May's => standard-setting 1626 English version of books one through three. In the present volume, this great epic poem in May's translation is accompanied by its translator's English rendition of his own sequel, originally written in Latin verse. This Continuation advances the action through Cleopatra's seduction of Caesar (May depicts the Egyptian queen with "snowie necke" and "golden tresses"), the death of Cato, and various additional battles before arriving at Caesar's death. At the time, May's work was thought highly enough of that Charles I allowed the Continuation's dedication to bear his name. 20th-century black morocco in imitation of early, severe style, with raised bands from which blind-tooling extends onto covers; spine with gilt-stamped title and date, and turn-ins elaborately tooled in blind. Moderately worn, spine faded not unattractively, and leather rubbed over joints. Front pastedown with bookplate, inked date of 1986; front free endpaper with inked gift inscription dated 1944. T1-2 trimmed differently and possibly surviving from another copy; A3 of the continuation also possibly supplied. Occasional instances of very minor staining; mostly clean. => Pleasant on shelf and in hand.

      - Amsterdam, Ioannis Ianssoni, 1631. Folio. Grav. titelblad,+ (14),+ 812,+ (52) s.+ fyra utvikbara grav. kartor. Ett helsides graverat porträtt på författaren vid 59 års ålder i dedikationen. Kartorna löst bilagda, Danmarkskartan lagad och uppfodrad, med stor bildförlust. Återkommande brunfläckiga sidor, emellanåt kraftigt, enstaka småfläckar och enstaka understrykningar med rödkrita. Svag fuktrand mot slutet. Samtida pergamentband. Med professor Carl Aurivillius namnteckning på frampärmens insida, daterad 1783. Ur Gustaf d?Albedyhlls bibliotek, med hans exlibris (variant 1 med devisen Mors sine musis vita) och ur Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris klistrat över d?Albedyhlls. Warmholtz 2775. Bibl. danica III, sp. 13. Thesaurus 596. Carlander II, 499 & III, 88 & 564ff. Ej i Nordenskiöld collection. Mycket sällsynt med kartorna. Både Bibl. danica och Thesaurus anger tre kartor. Kartorna är en Danmarkskarta, en Islandskarta, en över hertigdömet Holstein och en över Fyn. Islandskartan av Carolous Flandro är densamma som sedan kom till användning först i Janssons och sedan i Blaeus stora Atlaser. Ståtligt exemplar av den nya danska rikshistorien på latin, vilken skulle ersätta Saxos krönika som internationell gångbar dansk historia. Detta är första delen, vilket var allt som publicerades i samtiden. Den andra delen trycktes först 1740. Jobbet att få fram en ny rikshistoria på latin hade pågått i Danmark sedan mitten av 1500-talet, efter att publicerandet av Johannes Magnus svenska krönika 1554 gjort behovet märkbart. Ett stort antal danska historiker och rikshistoriografer hade i tur och ordning engagerats, Svaning, Vedel, Krag, Lyschander m.fl., men ingen blev färdigt. Arild Huitfelds stora historieverk som utkom under denna tid är skriven på danska. Slutligen utsåg man två rikshistoriografer, Pontanus och Johannes Meursius, och under 1630-talet publicerades inte mindre än två olika danska historieverk, varav Pontanus är det största. (Se Skovgaard-Petersen för alla turerna kring detta). Johannes Isaac Pontanus (1571-1639) från Helsingör studerade både Leiden och i England. Han blev nära vän med den inflytelserika Arild Huitfeldt, och jobbade ett tag som assistent åt denne, vilket skulle få stor betydelse för hans danska historia. Han blev 1604 professor i Harderwijk i Holland, där han stannade till sin död, och där han utgav en stor mängd verk i historia och geografi. 1618 blev han så även dansk rikshistoriograf, med uppgiften att skriva den danska historien på latin, vars första del skulle ta 13 år i anspråk. Resten av livet jobbade han med fortsättningen, perioden 1448-1588, vilken han fullbordade strax före sin död. Denna del utgavs dock inte förrän 1740 av E. J. von Westphalen i ?Monumenta inedita rerum Germanicarum? Carl Aurivillius (1717-86) var professor i österländska språk i Uppsala, bibelöversättare och medlem i Gustav III:s bibelkommission. Hans bibliotek såldes på två auktioner i Uppsala 1787 resp. 1788. Envoyén Gustaf d?Albedyhlls (1758-1819) boksamling ärvdes av hans son Carl Gustaf Eichstedt d?Albedyhll (1800-56), som därigenom tillsammans med egna förvärv byggde upp en mycket stor samling, f.f.a. inom nordisk historia. Denna samling skulle sålts på auktion 1843, men köptes i stället i sin helhet av Carl Jedvard Bonde, f.ö. samma år som denne efterträdde d?Albedyhll som överceremonimästare.

      London: Printed by I[ohn] N[orton] for Hugh Perry, 1631. Small 4to. (7 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches). [vi], 68, [1] pp. Printer's colophon leaf in rear. (Title and A4 on stub guards). Full red morocco by Zaehnsdorf, covers bordered with a gilt triple fillet, spine in six compartments with raised bands, ruled in gilt on either side of each band, lettered in the second compartment, the others with repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges Provenance: early ink and pencil marginalia throughout A very rare early account of an overland journey through India and the Middle East. The author and his men left Plymouth in March 1607 aboard the Ascension and were among the first Englishmen to see the Cape of Good Hope, arriving there in July 1608. Coverte eventually reached Gujarat, where the ship ran aground while approaching Surat. Not granted permission to remain in Surat, the crew departed to various destinations. Coverte and others set out overland for the Moghul Court at Agra via Burhanpur (describing the important military post as larger than London), arriving at Agra in December 1609. Although asked by the emperor Jahangir to serve in his military service, Coverte and other crew members left Agra in January 1610 "with the intention of making their way back to the Levant by the overland route. Travelling by way of Kandahar, Esfahan, and Baghdad, they reached Aleppo in December 1610 and from the coast of the Levant sailed for England. They subsequently arrived home in April 1611" (Howgego). An absorbing account presented in the form of a travel diary, Penrose described this work as a "vigorous narrative. It relates its author's reception by the Emperor Jahangir, and his ... journey across India, Afghanistan, and Persia, and ... is one of the best examples of a travel journal that the period produced." The work was first published in 1612, with a second edition appearing two years later before the present third edition: all English editions are rare and desirable. Two German translations followed and the account was further published in compilations of discovery and exploration, including those published by De Bry, Hulsius, and van der Aa.
