        "Santa Maria della Salute" originales Ölgemälde auf Spanplatte ca.50x70cm; links und rechts unten Stempelsignatur; rückseitig mit Nachlaßaufkleber

      . Santa Maria della Salute beherrscht die Einfahrt zum Canale Grande. Der Bau wurde von Baldassare Longhena 1631 begonnen, aber erst 1687 fertiggestellt und als Dank für die Errettung der Stadt vor der Pest erbaut. Die oktogonale Form der Kirche, die sich der Lage anpaßt, gestattet Durchblick von allen Seiten. Das untere Geschoß zeigt eine an Palladio erinnernde Verhaltenheit, während die riesigen Voluten, die den Schub der Kuppel auffangen, die Dynamik des Barockstils betonen. Das Äußere besteht aus weißem Kalkstein aus Istrien, während im Inneren dunkelgraue Steinsäulen einen Kontrast zu den weißen Stuckwänden bilden..

        Of the institution of the sacrament of the blessed bodie and blood of Christ . discovering the superstitious, sacrilegious, and idolatrous abominations of the Romish masse. Together with the consequent obstinacies, overtures of perjuries, and the heresies discernable in the defenders thereof

      printed by W. Stansby, for Robert Mylbourne, London 1631 - First edition, folio, pp. [20], 255, [1], 143, [16]; contemporary full speckled calf, covers ruled in blind, edges of covers with gilt rules, contemporary manuscript paper label on spine, sprinkled edges; minor rubbing; fine. Thomas Morton, at the time Bishop of Coventry and Lichfield, and later of Durham, was much admired by both James I and Charles I. He appears to have been a man of considerable charm, and a kind and enthusiastic patron of deserving scholars. Most of his writings were devoted to exposing the fallacies of Romish doctrines, but the content of his books is perhaps not well indicated by the rather strident tone of some of his titles. "They display great learning and an intimate acquaintance with the arguments of his antagonists. It is no small praise that they exhibit none of the bitterness and scurrility which too commonly disfigure the polemics of the age" (DNB). STC 18189; CBEL I, 1996.

        THE SPANISH BAWD, Represented in Celestina: or, the Tragicke-Comedy of Calisto and Melibea

      London, printed by J. B. and are to be sold by Ralph Mabbe, 1631.. London, printed by J. B. and are to be sold by Ralph Mabbe, 1631.. Wherein is contained, besides the pleasantnesse and sweetenesse of the stile, many philosophicall sentences, and profitable instructions necessary for the younger sort: shewing the deceits and subtilties housed in the bosomes of false seruants, and cunny-catching Bawds. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION 1631 of La Celestina (Spanish original first published anonymously in 1499), 4to, approximately 270 x 190 mm, 10½ x 7¼ inches, printer's device on title page, some decorative headpieces and historiated initials, pages: [14 of 16], 88, 91-202, a couple of errors of pagination, collation: A8, B-Bb4, Cc6 (-A1 - blank), Cc3 misnumbered Cc2, text is continuous and complete, Cc6 is a blank. Bound in full contemporary calf, triple blind ruled border to covers and on spine, gilt lettered red morocco title label, no pastedowns or endpapers. Spine slightly faded, gilt dull, corners slightly bumped, a few small scrapes and signs of wear to cover, endpapers replaced with incunabula leaves in black letter with red headings and initials, 2 lines of subtitle cut out on title page and now replaced with good facsimile, 3 small ink blots and a couple of faint ink words on title page (see image), small repair to lower margin of title page and following A3, 3 short closed edge tears to leaf Cc neatly repaired, another in the text with no loss of legibility, Cc is possibly reinserted as upper margin is trimmed away (no loss), very occasional small margin stain. Otherwise a very good clean copy. ESTC lists 2 versions of 1631, neither "to be sold by Ralph Mabbe", presumably a relative of the translator. La Celestina is considered to be one of the greatest works of Spanish literature, and traditionally marks the end of medieval literature and the beginning of the literary renaissance in Spain. Although usually regarded as a novel, it is written as a continuous series of dialogues and can be taken as a play, having been staged as such and filmed. (Wikipedia). "An excellent and racy, if exuberantly diffuse, translation into English prose... It is one of the first English dramatic works that approach true comedy." Oxford Companion to English Literature.

      Paris, Martin Colet, 1631. - in-8. 321pp. 2ff. tabl. dépl. Veau, dos à nerfs, guirlande autour des plats, tranches dorées (Reliure du XVIIIs. un peu restaurée). Nicolas Habicot (1550-1624) était anatomiste et chirurgien. Ses leçons publiques d'anatomie dans lesquelles il décrivait la manière de procéder à des dissections de cadavres ainsi que les instruments appropriés, étaient célèbres. On lui doit des découvertes anatomiques et la première laryngotomie réussie (cf. Garrison-Morton, 3244.1). "La Semaine" est son principal ouvrage d'anatomie. "L'auteur a mis dans son livre le même ordre qu'il suivait dans ses leçons publiques et comme il avait beaucoup disséqué il a fait quelques découvertes qu'il a exposées assez clairement " (Bayle et Tillaye). "La 'Semaine Anatomique' a servi de manuel d'amphithéâtre à de nombreuses générations de médecins et de chirurgiens . Il est devenu, un véritable chef-d'œuvre dont la France à droit à s'enorgueillir" (Vaucaire). Quelques auréoles, rousseurs. **Krivatsy, 5184. Vaucaire, Etude sur Habicot.

Als Mitstreiter von Johannes Calvin verfasste er Schriften über die Prädestination und das Abendmahl. Er teilte Calvins Ansicht über die Bestrafung von Häretikern und rechtfertigte z.B. in einem Buch "De haereticis a civili magistratu puniendis", (1554) die Hinrichtung von Michael Servetus. Er erwarb sich in der reformierten Schweiz ein so hohes Vertrauen, dass er 1557 und 1558 mehrfach Mitglied von Delegationen an die protestantischen Fürsten Deutschlands war, welche diese um Fürsprache am französischen Hof zugunsten der bedrohten Waldenser in Piemont und der in Paris inhaftierten Reformierten ersuchten. Nach Calvins Tod 1564, wurde er dessen Nachfolger als Präsident des Konsistoriums.

        A TRUE AND ALMOST INCREDIBLE REPORT OF AN ENGLISHMAN, that (being cast away in the good ship called the Assension in Cambaya, the farthest part of the East Indies) travelled by land thorow many unknowne kingdomes and great cities

      London, printed by I. N. for Hugh Perry, 1631.: . London, printed by I. N. for Hugh Perry, 1631.. VVith a particular description of all those kingdomes, cities, and people: as also, a relation of their commodities and manner of traffique, and at what seasons of the yeere they are most in use. Faythfully related: with a discovery of a great emperour called the Great Mogoll, a prince not till now knowne to our English nation. THIRD EDITION 1631. Slim 4to, approximately 180x 140 mm, 7 x 5½ inches, printed in black letter, pages: (2 of 8), 68, plus colophon leaf, initial and final blank leaves are missing as are 2 preliminary leaves which should follow the title page, the main text is complete. The title page appears to be a later printed replacement (it is not a photocopy facsimile), it is tipped onto the inner edge of page 1 and the mistake "Traffiqne" which appears on the title pages of all the 1631 editions we could find, has been corrected to "Traffique". Bound in half green roan over marbled boards, gilt title to spine. Spine rubbed, corners and board edges slightly worn, small scrape to surface paper on lower cover, some pencil notes on front pastedown, 3 armorial bookplates on endpapers, 1 belonging to Frances Mary Richardson Currer and another to her grandfather Mathew Wilson, title page just very slightly narrower than page 1, upper margins slightly trimmed, shaving running title in a few places, small light brown stain to lower corner of 4 leaves, light browning to a few pages. Binding tight and firm. A very good copy of a scarce book, (lacking 2 preliminary leaves as noted). There is very little information about Robert Coverte. Although styled on the title page as Captaine Robert Covert, It seems he was steward on the 'Ascension' which sailed from Plymouth in 1607. The vessel ran aground going into Surat, the primary port of the Moghul Empire, but the crew escaped ashore in boats. An English merchant introduced them to the court of the Great Mogul at Agra arriving in December 1609. Coverte with his companions started out for home from Agra at the beginning of 1610 choosing to travel overland through Kandahar, Esfahan, and Baghdad. They reached Aleppo in December 1610 and then took a ship back to England arriving in April 1611. Coverte's account of his travels was first published in 1612 and again in 1614. Howgego, Encyclopedia of Exploration, Volume I, C211; Cox, Volume I, page 266. England’s first lady book collector, Frances Mary Richardson Currer (1785-1861) was a well-known bibliophile and scholar, and had one of the largest libraries in the north of England. She was one of the founders of the Clergy Daughters School at Cowan Bridge which Charlotte and Emily Bronte both attended and her surname is undoubtedly the source of Charlotte's pseudonym, 'Currer Bell'.

        Horticultura, Libris II. comprehensa; huic nostro coelo & solo accommodata... in qua quicquid ad hortum proficue colendum, et eleganter instruendum facit, explicatur.

      1631. Frankfurt, Matthias Merian, (1631), (with:) Apparatus Plantarum primus: tributus in duos libros. I. De plantis bulbosis. II. De plantis tuberosis... Frankfurt, Matthias Merian, (1632). 2 vols in one. 4to (205 x 155mm). pp. 196, with engraved title and 29 full-page engraved plates (with blank conjugate to plate 21), 6 of which are printed in the text; 168, with engraved title and 36 engraved plates in text; small tear to preface of 'Apparatus' touching woodcut ornament and a few letters on verso, a very nice copy in contemporary vellum, spine a bit discoloured. First edition of one of the best of the early 17th-century gardening manuals, scientific in its detail and approach. It is known to have influenced John Evelyn who quotes it in his unpublished 'Elysium Britannicum'. Morton describes the work as 'typical of the experience and ideas that began to flow into botany from horticulture' and goes on to recount how Lauremberg rejected the idea of the 'plant soul' having a specific location, because 'horticulturalists knew that plants could live and reproduce themselves from very small pieces cut from the roots (i.e. rhizomes, stolons, etc.) as well as from branches, stems, seeds, and even leaves (as in the case of the Indian fig). Therefore the soul or vital force (vigor vitalis) is not in one part more than another, but diffused through the whole plant body... Lauremberg describes his own experiment, lasting three years, in which two hundred vine cuttings were grown in close association with two varieties of cabbage in order to test an ancient belief, mentioned by Pliny, that vine and cabbage adversely affect each other. He found, however, that both species flourished and there was no evidence of mutual inhibition... In other experiments he found, contrary to tradition, that rue and fig did not benefit from interplanting. There were many gardener's notions about how seeds were best oriented when sown; the wrong way was said to give dwarf or unthrifty plants. Again, Lauremberg made his own observations with seeds of pea, cucurbita, walnut, almond, date and others, finding that the stem grew upwards and the root downwards irrespective of the original orientation, and that the alleged effects of malplacement were "empty superstition"' (Morton, History of botanical science p. 222-3). The work covers a variety of topics, including the layout of the orchard and flower and herb gardens, topiary, labyrinths, sundials, etc. Five plates illustrate gardening tools, 18 are of designs for parterres and labyrinths, and two are for topiary. The second title, 'Apparatus plantarum', the sequel to the 'Horticultura', is devoted to bulbous and tuberous plants, including the most popular garden flowers of the time. It 'deals not only with their medicinal and culinary uses, but their care and propagation, places in literature, etc.' (Johnston). Provenance: inscription on verso of last text leaf of Apparatus: 'IASVSH. Anno 1650'; inscription on title 'Ordinis Crucigerorum cum Zubea Stella Pragae 1671'. Hunt 219 and 221; Johnston 181 and 183; Nissen BBI 1147 and 1146; Wellcome 3681 and 3682..

        Florilegium amplissimum et selectissimum, quo non, tantum varia diversorum florum praestantissimorum et nunquam antea exhibitorum genera, sed et rarae quamplurimae indicarum plantarum, et radicum formae, ad vivum partibus duabus, quatuor etiam linguis offeruntur et delineantur... Amsterdam, Johann Jansson, 1647 [bound with:] Florilegii pars secunda...

      1631. Amsterdam, Johann Jansson, 1631. Two vols in one. Folio (410 x 271mm). pp. [xxviii including frontispiece and portrait]; [xii, including terminal blank], with engraved frontispiece-title and portrait to part one, and 110 engraved plates with 560 figures of plants; some occasional marginal staining, several leaves with some browning, generally a very good copy, in contemporary yapped vellum, lettered in manuscript on spine, fore-edge worn. A large copy in its original binding, a later edition (first 1612) of one of the most attractive and popular of the early florilegia. The first part of the work is devoted to bulbous plants, and the second to miscellaneous beautiful and sweet-smelling garden plants. 'The first two editions were essentially catalogues for the selling of plants and bulbs, while the later editions were true florilegia intended for the connoisseur and the scientist... Sweerts was born in Zevenbergen, Holland, in 1552, but spent the greater part of his life in Amsterdam, where he worked as an artist and as a merchant in objects d'art and rare or curious natural specimens... His inventory included a wide variety of cultivated and bulbous plant species. His coupling of professions was an auspicious one, for rare flowers were considered prized items by collectors, but unlike the other objects in the connoisseur's collection, their beauty was transient and could only be captured on paper or canvas... Sweert's fame as a floriculturist spread far and wide, and a white iris was even named after him (the Iris sweertii). His name often appears in the correspondence of naturalists, botanists and floriculturists of the period, and he himself corresponded with many of them, including the floriculturist Matteo Caccini... The Habsburg emperor Rudolf II, possessor of many magnificent collections, tried unsuccessfully to entice Sweerts to join his court in Prague as director of the royal gardens. [In the dedication] Sweerts states that is was Rudolf II... who encouraged him to depict the more rare and unusual flowers in his collection and to have them etched in copper...' (Lucia Tongiorgi Tomasi, An Oak Spring Flora p. 43). The designer or engraver of the plates is unknown, although many of the plates are copied from de Bry's Florilegium. 'Over 560 different flowers are depicted. They are grouped by species, and in some cases several appear together on a single page. In the case of the tulips and anemones, only the flower is shown. For other species, such as the Pancratium illyricum (part I, pl. 27) the bulb occupies a large portion of the page' (ibid). Nissen BBI, 1921..

        Brief mit eigenh. U.

      [Florenz], 10. VIII. 1631.. 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt (mit Adresse). Gr.-4to. Mit einem Schuldnerverzeichnis (7 SS. auf 6 Bll. Folio).. An den Florentiner Patrizier Alessandro Caccini mit der Bitte um Gewährung einer Pension an seinen verdienten Mitarbeiter Niccolaio Martinetti. Del Turco fügt nicht nur ein Verzeichnis der wichtigsten von seiner Werkstatt ausgeführten Arbeiten (mit Preisen) bei, sondern auch ein ausführliches Schuldnerverzeichnis ("Lista di Debitori del Faglio levata ad di 11 di Luglio 1631"). Gleich der erste aufgeführte Schuldner ist kein Geringerer als Galileo Galilei, dessen epochemachender "Dialogo sopra i due Massimi Sistemi del Mondo" eben zu dieser Zeit in Florenz in Druck ging, das Werk, für das ihm schon 1633 der Prozeß gemacht werden sollte. Welche Arbeit Galilei bei Caccini in Auftrag gegeben hatte, geht aus der Aufstellung nicht hervor; die Schuld ist mit 26,12.8 Scudi aber eine vergleichsweise geringe, wenn man sie etwa vergleicht mit den 300 Scudi, die der Großherzog Ferdinand II. schuldete, oder den offensichtlich schwer einbringlichen 1330 Scudi, mit denen die Erben nach dem Florentiner Theologen Giovanni Bandini belastet waren, der bereits 1628 als Domherr zu St. Peter in Rom gestorben war. - Durchgehend stärkere Wasserränder bzw. Feuchtigkeitsspuren sowie Randläsuren, jedoch durchwegs gut lesbar.

        TITLES OF HONOR

      London by William Stansby for Richard Whitakers 1631 - The second edition of the work which earned Selden the praise of Ben Jonson, with expanded discourses on England that carried contemporary political ramifications. With the engraved bookplate of Theophilus Desbrisay. With engraved title in red and black, engraved initials and illustrations within the text. Thick 4to, bound in contemporary full calf, the boards framed with a double-rule in blind, the spine with raised bands and with a red morocco label lettered and ruled in gilt. a1-a4, 1-39; [2], 1-24; 1-131 pp. Very well preserved, the text surprisingly clean and still unpressed, minor edge wear to the title-page and endleaves, the binding sturdy and strong but with minor age to the extremities and evidence of earlier expert sophistication. THE FIRST MAJOR WORK OF HISTORICAL IMPORTANCE BY THE MAN JOHN MILTON CALLED "THE CHIEF OF LEARNED MEN REPUTED IN THIS LAND." It is also work for which Seldon was also praised as the "monarch of letters" by his friend Ben Jonson. Jonson's three page verses to his friend Selden are printed in the preliminaries. First published in 1614, this treatise on the titles of nobility, peerage law, heraldry and genealogy remained the most comprehensive work on the subject for centuries. This second edition is expanded by the author and includes further discourses on England. But the work goes well beyond England and Europe and includes Islamic lands and China. Revising the second edition created political ramifications for Selden. In investigating the origins of England’s political structure, Selden argued that the king had always been advised by assemblies, whether it be a "witenagemot" or a "parliament," Norman conquest notwithstanding. By asserting such long-standing precedents for regular meetings, Selden signaled his opposition to the country's current political situation. The reigning king, Charles I, had called a Parliament out of necessity to raise funds in 1628, but then suspended it to avoid making concessions. The suspension lasted ten years. Selden was among the members of that session of Parliament imprisoned upon its dissolution. Selden may have used this enforced leisure time to complete this second edition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Sm.f&#146;cap folio, in fours; text printed within ruled borders, with side-notes; wood-cut head-pieces and large historiated initials; without the blank [A]1, the first leaf being the title-leaf; pp.[iii - xii (not paginated)]+88; A<SUP>5</SUP>, B - I, K - M<SUP>4</SUP>; early, possibly contemporary, diced calf, later re-backed, with red lettering-piece and plain end-papers. Old calf a trifle scratched, and very slightly worn at corners; spine a little rubbed at head, with slight wear to extreme edge of lettering-piece; blank lower-margin of title-page (but not the verso) a little embrowned (apparently by contact with the turnovers of the calf); A5 with two short marginal tears not approaching the borders, and a trifle dusty on verso; blank lower fore-corner lacking to leaf F4; minute, barely visible, restorations to extreme lower fore-corner of last two leaves; otherwise a nice, unpressed, copy. This copy is printed on thick paper. Three of Ben Jonson&#146;s plays were first printed in 1631: &#145;Bartholomew Fayre&#146;, &#145;The Divell is an Asse&#146; and &#145;The Staple of Newes&#146;. The original intention seems to have been to issue them together, as was done in fact in 1640 (with the addition of a general title-page giving &#145;The Staple of Newes&#146; as the second title rather than the third), and this is supported to some extent by both the signatures and pagination. In the collective edition the signatures run-on continuously throughout &#145;Bartholomew Fayre&#146; and &#145;The Divell is an Asse&#146;, and, with the omission of gathering &#145;Z&#146;, into &#145;The Staple of Newes&#146;, where the alphabet recommences as &#145;Aa&#146;. After the third gathering of the last, however, the reduplicative letter is dropped, so that the gathering expected to be signed &#145;Dd&#146; is in fact signed merely &#145;D&#146;, and this arrangement is then continued to the end. A similar uncertainty afflicts the numbering, for whereas p.88 of &#145;Bartholomew Fayre&#146; is followed, after a two-page gap, by &#145;The Divell is an Asse&#146;, which continues the numbering from p.[91] - 170, &#145;The Staple of Newes&#146; is separately paginated throughout. The editor was Jonson himself, who presumably regarded the production as a second volume of his Works, following on from that of 1616, but it looks as though part way through the printing of these plays it struck somebody, probably Allot, that it would be sensible to have the option of issuing them separately as well as in collective form, and they were then somewhat hastily redesigned. It is a curiosity that no general title-page for the 1631 collective issue appears ever to have been provided, though they are usually found in collective form. In this copy pp.12 and 13 are misnumbered 6 and 3, and p.31 is misnumbered 13, as always. Pollard & Redgrave, 14753.5 refer but do not record a separate issue of &#145;Bartholmew Fayre&#146;; NCBEL, I: 1658 All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

      Lugduni Batavorum; Ex Officina Bonaventurae & Abrahmi Elzevir. 1631. Later cloth. 12mo. [16], 291, [13] pages. 17 cm. First edition. Text in Latin and Hebrew. Imprint date in Roman numerals. Title page in red and black. Published in Leiden. Commentaries on Isaiah 30, by Isaac Abravanel (1437-1508) and Moses Alshekh (1507-1600) . Translated by Constantijn L&#39;Empereur (1591&#150;1648) , a promiment Dutch Hebraist. The translation &#147;is coupled with an attempt at refuting the positions and views of Abravanel and Alshekh. The goal is &#145;to give a complete understanding of the satisfaction of Christ. &#146; 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&#146;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. &#148; (Entry 91, &#145;Christian Hebraism: the study of Jewish culture by Christian scholars in medieval and early modern times, proceedings of a colloquium and catalogue of an exhibition&#146;; 1998) .
