        Ancient Funerall Monuments Within The United Monarchie of Great Britain Ireland and the lands adjacent, withe the dissolved Monasteries therein in contained; their founders, and what eminent persons have beene in the same interred. As also the Death and burial of certain of the Blood Royall; the Nobilitie and Gentrie of these Kingdoms entombed in forraine Nations. with other matters mentioned in the issuing Title. Compiled by the Travels and Study of John Weever. Sye labor leuis.

      An exceptional and unique copy signed by Weever "To the Right Honourable Thomas Viscount Maidstone Jo: Weever presents these his imperfect labours." The inscription is similar to the one in Queens'College Cambridge where the inscription reads: "To the learned and judicious view of the Master and Fellows of Queens' College Cambridge John Weever presents these his imperfect Labours." Weever studied at Cambridge. The copy also unique in another respect as it has the Royal Coat of Arms, gilt, inserted into the front and rear boards. The writer was reliably informed that this Coat of Arms is pre Civil War and was probably obtained when the Royal Library was sacked. It makes this copy unique. Small Folio, calf binding, gilt lettering and image of a castle on the spine, all edges gilt, and lined quality paper. ffep's with inscription, xx pp [including engraving of the author facing engraved title page, evidently by Thomas Cecil, second title page, dedication to King Charles, The Author to the Reader, A Table of the Discourse & Errata, 871pp. This work covers the funeral monuments in the diocese of Canterbury, Rochester, London and Norwich. Evidently he intended to produce another one or two volumes covering other diocese and the notes of his work are held in the Library of the Society of Antiquaries. Weever was not only an antiquarian but produced poetry long before he started his work on the Monuments, and was the friend of many literary people of his age. Funeral Monuments is 'larded' with poetry and he had verses to Stratford upon Avon mentioning Shakespeare. In this work he addressed several epigrams to contemporary literary figures. In late 1599 appeared Weever's "Epigrammes in the Oldest Cut, and Newest Fashion" it was published in London. One of these, 'Ad Gulielmum Shakespear' is the earliest known complete poem addressed to Shakespeare, and is also the only poem in the volume to take the form of a Shakespearian sonnet. Printer's errors result in a number mispaginations but the work is complete as the text is continuous as is the gathering. There are engraved images in the text pages 292, 293, full page engraved images pages 494 495, engravings 652, 654, 698, 772, 773, 774, 775, 841, 843, 844, 846, 849, 850, & 851. There three generally minor defects: Piece missing from top corner of pages 583/84 with loss of page number but no loss of text, + small burn hole in margin., small piece missing from page 623 with no loss of text, and tear in pages 649/50 with loss of one letter. This is an extremely clean, crisp copy.

        Letter signed.

      Ingolstadt, 17. XI. 1631. - Folio. 3 pp. on bifolium. In Italian, to an unidentified recipient: "Ho riceputo la cortesiss.ma di V. S. insieme con altre lettere quali non ho mancato di servirlo conforme, m' ha commandato, per la sua, come sempre sarò ad ogni suo comando. Circa al provederè del Regi.to del S. Bilick [?] S. M. Reggia hà già disposto al Altezza del sereniss.mo Cardinal Infante il provedere al detto ove son più, che cento, in lasciandosi [.]". - An early, long letter dating from the beginning of Leslie's career, as a major in the infantry regiment of count Adam Erdmann Trcka, shortly before Wallenstein was reinstated as commander of the Imperial Army. Born at Fetternear House in Aberdeenshire, Leslie crossed the North Sea to join the Protestant Army of the United Provinces at age 17; in 1630 he transferred to the Imperial Army. Leslie's leading role in the assassination plot against Wallenstein (in the course of which he himself was wounded) paved the way to his subsequent brilliant career as an officer, courtier and landlord. - Some duststaining to margins; traces of folds; repairs to second leaf.

        Les abus du mariage | Misbruick des houwelycx | Misbrauch des ehlichen Standes.[Amsterdam], 1641. Small oblong 4to (15 x 19 cm). With engraved frontispiece, an etched plate, and 25 engravings in text (ca. 9.5 x 14 cm), each of the engravings showing 2 oval portraits of men and women, who sinned against the rules of marriage. The etching shows a cart drawn by two goats, a satyr as driver, and on the cart a joyful party of three women and two men. Modern half vellum.

      Brunet I, p. 22 (“rares et fort recherchés”, issue unclear); Franken 1372 (English issue); Hollstein XVI, p. 145, no. 188 (English issue); STCN (7 copies of the English issue, incl. 3 incomplete); not in VD17. Extremely rare issue, including the text in German, of the first and only edition of a print series warning against the failures of marriage, showing 50 portraits of (adulterous) chambermaids, madams and pimps, merchants, steersmen, hostesses, priests, tailors, astronomers, philosophers etc., the whole divided into French & Dutch women and Spanish & Italian women.

The series was published simultaneously in two issues, the less rare one with letterpress texts in French, Dutch and English (with the English title: The mistake off Matrimonij [!]), and the present with the English replaced by the German text, apparently during the press run.

With bookplate. One quire (F) includes the English instead of the German text. Some thumbing throughout, some faint water stains and a few occasional smudges, otherwise in good condition.

        Trigonometrie: Or, the Doctine of Triangles: Divided into Two Books.

      Overview Details & Condition Seventh edition of Norwood's highly important and commercially successful book on mathematics for navigators, originally published in 1631 and used as a reference by Isaac Newton. Richard Norwood (1590-1675) set out on his mathematical career when, as a teenager, he joined the crew of a coastal trading vessel and began learning mathematics and navigation. He made a number of long voyages in the coming years and was soon known for his accuracy as a surveyor and navigator. Norwood also spent time as a teacher of mathematics and navigation, and in 1622 married and settled permanently in London where he wrote books and also made important theoretical contributions. Among these were his methods for checking closure and declination of magnetic compasses, and his extremely accurate calculation of the nautical mile, which was undertaken in the mid-1630s and was eventually shown to be only 40 feet too long. Many of Norwood's books "reached several editions and remained in print in the 1690s" (ODNB). Trigonometrie reached its eighth edition in 1685, its popularity resulting from its practical mathematical solutions to astronomical and navigational problems. "With a book like this in his hand there was now no reason why the navigator should not solve all problems of plane and Mercator's sailing logarithmically. Norwood had weaned logarithmical navigation from the lecture hall" (Waters). Norwood's work is also intimately connected with that of Sir Isaac Newton, who owned copies of the 1645 and 1688 editions of Trigonometrie. Norwood was one of Newton's sources for the measured circumference of the Earth, a key part of his demonstration of universal gravitation - Newton cites Norwood's measurement of the length of a degree in the second and third editions of the Principia. There has been some controversy over this between scholars who believe that Newton worked out his theory in a flash of insight during his annus mirabilis of 1665-66 and those who argue that he struggled over a much longer period. Norwood published his accurate measurement of 69 miles per degree in A Seaman's Practice in 1636, but used the commonly accepted and less accurate measurement of 60 miles per degree in Trigonometrie. This less accurate number would not have been ideal for Newton's calculations, and some scholars have suggested that when he attempted to use it in 1666 he met with poor results and set aside his work until the 1680s, when he was at last successful using the more accurate figure. Though Trigonometrie was a best-seller in its time, copies of all editions are now scarce, with only five appearing at auction in the last fifteen years. The first shewing the Mensuration of right lined Triangles: The second of Spherical, with the Grounds and Demonstrations thereof. Both performed by that late and excellent Invention of Logarithms, after a more easie and compendious manner, than hath been formerly taught. Whereunto is annexed (chiefly for the use of Seamen) A Treatise of the application thereof, in the three principal kinds of Sailing. With exact Tables of the Suns Declination... Also other necessary Tables used in Navigation. This Seventh Edition being diligently Corrected in divers difficult Places explained; New Tables of the Stars right ascensions and Declinations added, and the whole Work very much enlarged, by the Author himself. London: by R. W. for William Fisher; T. Passenger; R. Boulter; and R. Smith, 1678. Contemporary speckled sheep rebacked with the original spine laid down, black morocco spine label, marbled edges. Woodcut diagrams throughout the text. Contemporary ownership signature "Strathnaver 1683" to front free endpaper and small contemporary decorative mark to title. Publisher's ads on the final page. Corners and head of spine worn, joints splitting at the head of the spine, repaired crack to inner side of the lower board, hinges cracked, closed tear to four leaves at the upper part of the gutter, single wormhole to margins of final leaves, the final leaf slightly trimmed at the lower edge cutting off the final line of the advertisement, but not affecting the table on the opposite side.

        [Military and quasi-military uniforms, portraits and scenes of battles, uprisings etc.].[Austria or Saxony?, ca. 1870?]. Large folio album (39 x 30.5 cm). With 84 large watercolour drawings (28 x 16 cm to 25.5 x 36 cm) on wove paper, with captions in German and/or French, mounted on the (ca. 1962) album leaves, and with the coat of arms of Von Lindeman(n) of Sachsen-Anhalt (in coloured gouaches plus gold) mounted on the first page. Early 20th-century(?) half tanned sheepskin, green sheepskin sides.

      An extraordinary set of original watercolour drawings, apparently unpublished, celebrating the creation of the Austro-Hungarian Empire through the military events that led up to it and the uniforms of the various nations and regiments involved. Except for one drawing concerning 1631, the events depicted are dated from 1757 to 1852. Officers and others in uniform from every corner of the Empire are shown: Prussians, Hungarians, Austrians, Poles, Czechs, Croats, Dalmatians, Transylvanians, Serbians, Bosnians and many more, with a few examples of local militias and of foreign army regiments from France, the Ottoman Empire, Russia and the British Isles (including kilted Scottish Grenadiers at Waterloo). A few appear in Islamic dress, including turbans. Some show portraits of leading figures, including Frederick the Great (1712-1786), King of Prussia and Mohammed Said Pasja (1822-1863) wali (governor) of Egypt. The uniforms are depicted in great detail, with vivid and bright colours, and some show the changes in uniforms at two or three different dates in a short span of years. The present set of 84 was no doubt part of a collection of at least 536. They may have been prepared for a publication that remained unrealised.The arms on the first page belong to the Von Lindeman(n) family of Sachsen-Anhalt, the binding has the name "Von Linden Just" on the spine and the first page bears a presentation inscription, below the arms, from the Freiin von Lindeman-Just, dated from Augsburg, 1962, to a relative in Italy.With occasional mostly marginal tears (3 drawings with significant tears into the image and 1 with a smaller one), and occasional spots or small scuff marks, but most of the drawings are in good or very good condition. The binding is somewhat rubbed, but otherwise good. A wide-ranging view of military and quasi-military people and events, with special emphasis on uniforms, in the prehistory of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, 1757-1852.

Ehrencron-Müller V, s. 377. ?Historiae Danicae? är en titelupplaga av första tryckningen som kom 1630. Detta är dock varianten med tillägg av Aelnotus och Passione S. Caroli. Denna variant tas upp av Ehrencron-Müller men varken Bibl. danica eller Thesaurus nämner den. Det är den tredje delen av Meursius danska historia, den enda som trycks separat innan alla tre delarna utges i folio 1638. Det andra arbetet är likaledes en variant, med både ?Libri duo de luxu romanorum? och De vita, legibus, dictis ac scriptis Solonis? tryckta tillsammans, en variant som inte Ehrencron-Müller omnämner och inte heller Bibl. danica eller Thesaurus. Första upplagan av ?De luxu? utkom i Leiden 1605 och en ny upplaga ?Item mantissa. Editio nova? trycktes i Köpenhamn 1631, medan Solon utkom i Köpenhamn 1632. Dessa är här utgivna tillsammans med gemensamt titelblad men med separata signaturer. En nu försvunnen upplaga av ?De luxu Romanorum? ska ha tryckts i Sorø 1634 (Ebert s. 16). Johannes Meursius, eller van Meurs, (1579-1639) var holländsk historiker som 1624 kallades till professorstjänsten i historia vid universitetet i Sorø, och blev dessutom dansk rikshistoriograf. VD17 12:114210X för ?Chronicon Bergense? Första upplagan av Heinrich Meiboms (1555-1625) krönika över benediktinerklostret Berge i Magdeburg. Grundat på 900-talet var Berge ett av de viktigare benediktinerklostren. Det övergick i mitten på 1500-talet till att bli ett protestantiskt kloster. Det förstördes dock i samband med Magdeburgs förstöring under trettioåriga kriget.

      1631. Venezia Gio. Battista Conzato 1631 16° Pagine 4 Rarissimo bifolio stampato in occasione della posa della prima pietra della Basilica della Salute a Venezia. Santa Maria della Salute (o chiesa della Salute o semplicemente La Salute) è una basilica di Venezia eretta nell'area della Punta della Dogana, da dove risalta nel panorama del Bacino di San Marco e del Canal Grande. Progettata da Baldassare Longhena con attenzione ai modelli del Palladio, è una delle migliori espressioni dell'architettura barocca veneziana. La sua costruzione rappresenta un ex voto alla Madonna da parte dei veneziani per la liberazione dalla peste che tra il 1630 e il 1631 decimò la popolazione, come era avvenuto in precedenza per le chiese del Redentore e di San Rocco. Questo è così radicato a Venezia che è stato necessario inserire la Vergine Maria nell'elenco dei santi patroni della città di Venezia. Nel settembre del 1922 papa Pio XI l'ha elevata al rango di basilica minore. Ogni 21 novembre dell'anno si festeggia la Festa della Madonna della Salute in cui i veneziani attraversano un ponte, per secoli fatto di barche, ora galleggiante fissato su pali, che va da San Marco alla basilica e vi si recano a pregare. Insieme alla Festa del Redentore, è ancora oggi una delle feste popolari più amate e partecipate dai veneziani.

        1631 1ed John Davenant on Justification Faith Calvinism Protestant Calvin FOLIO

      Cantabrigiæ [Ex Academiæ celeberrimæ typographeo [i.e. Thomas Buck]] [[Anno MDCXXXI. [1631]. First edition. - 1631 1ed John Davenant on Justification Faith Calvinism Protestant Calvin FOLIO “The doctrine of Justification is of prime importance in the Christian system, since the clear apprehension of it les at the bottom of all proper conceptions of the God with whom we have to do, and is therefore essential to the peace and comfort of the soul of man.” Fuller, p. 355 Few Protestant theologians were as involved in Calvinist controversy as John Davenant. Other English divines were willing to tone down, or even omit, their Calvinistic doctrine, but not Davenant. While early in his preaching and writing career, his views were moderately Calvinistic, but they escalated quickly with the approval of King James! He preached decisively on predestination, but even into the 19th-century, Davenant was considered a moderate (but outspoken) Calvinist, but ‘not equal either in extent of learning or in breadth of view’ as other Calvinists of his time. (Stephen, 101). This first edition of “Praelectiones” (or “A Treatise on Justification”) is Davenant’s views on the authority of the Christian church, and outlines the fundamentals of Justification of faith. Sayle notes the lace bordering on the title page, which is consistent with this and later editions. (Sayle II, 5734). In addition to the attractive title page, the blank sheet before is filled with notes on substance of faith and Christian doctrine – certainly outlining major aspects of this work. The inconsistency in pagination is noted in the ‘Catalog of Books, Cambridge.’ (Bowes 39*). A fine copy with decorative gold gilt stamp on cover.

Text very little browned, very minor occasional spotting, faint dampstaining to upper margin. Provenance: Chevallier Rufigny (bookplate to front pastedown). ----Ter Meulen-D. 567; vgl. PMM 125 (for 1st. ed.). THE SECOND AUTHORISED EDITION (first folio and first Amsterdam edition) of the 'foundation of modern international law' (PMM). A prodigy in his youth, Grotius became a statesman and thinker of the greatest integrity whose influence on modern European thought can scarcely be overestimated. In 1619, cutting short a successful career in the law and diplomacy, Grotius was sentenced to life imprisonment in the Louvestein fortress in Holland by order of the stadtholder, Prince Maurice of Nassau, for having attempted to orchestrate a compromise between the Calvinist and anti-Spanish party, led by Maurice, and the more moderate Remonstrant party, who advocated self-government of the Dutch states in matters of religion. After a dramatic escape two years later (his wife smuggled him out of jail in a book trunk) Grotius took refuge in France, where he survived on meagre pensions, setding in 1623 in the country house of the President de Meme near Senlis, close to the property of deThou fib, who gave him free access to his father's splendid library. There Grotius began writing his master work, De jure belli ac pacis. Many of the ideas developed therein had been outlined in an unpublished work of his youth, the De jure praedae, the manuscript of which he had brought with him, enabling him to finish the treatise in under a year. The fundamental importance of the mature work is its attempt, a century before the spread of the Enlightenment, 'to obtain a principle of right, and a basis for society and government, outside the church or the Bible' (M. Pattison, art."Grotius", Ency. Brit. 1911,12, p.623). "L'édition qui est la première parue en Hollande et la première en grand format, est la troisième de toute la serie . . . est la plus importante des cinq éditions qui on été préparées, plus ou moins, par l'auteur lui-même." (Ter Meulen, Grotius No. 567). Visit our website for additional images and information. Very Good.

        Historia Antipodum oder Newe Welt, Das ist: Natur vnd Eigenschaft desz halbentheils der Erden...

      Frankfurt: Matthias Merian, 1631. Three parts in one volume, folio, engraved allegorical title, seven double-page or folding maps and plates, and 174 half-page text engravings; one or two scattered worm holes but a fine copy in contemporary vellum, ties lost, corners slightly bumped; front flyleaf loose; bookplate. First of several editions of this handsome book on the colonisation and conquest of the New World, a heavily-illustrated collection of voyage material relating to the antipodes. While some of the material deals with South America and the oceans of the southern hemisphere, there is much on North America and the West Indies: the word antipodes is used here in its loose sense of opposite ends of the globe, whether opposite by latitude or longitude, thus giving a context for seventeenth-century notions of the antipodes.This is 'important and magnificent, greatly sought after, expensive and rare', says Borba de Moraes, while Müller noted that it 'is sufficiently well known that good copies are very rare... '. For many years it was attributed to Johann Philipp Abelin, the sixteenth-century German chronicler, whose Theatrum Europaeum was a series of chronicles of the chief events in the history of the world down to 1619. Internet resources all repeat this attribution (an object lesson to us all) although, according to Borba de Moraes, J.L. Gallati proved (Der Koniglich schwedische in Deutschland geführte Krieg, 1902) that Gottfried was in fact the real author and not one of Abelin's pseudonyms.The material derives from the Grands Voyages, the great De Bry collection of voyages. Merian, the publisher of Gottfried's book, was De Bry's son-in-law, and therefore had access to the wonderful copper-engraved plates made to illustrate the De Bry collections. He also supplied a number of new maps and plates for this version, including a German edition of the Smith map of Virginia, and a depiction of the Dutch capture of the Spanish treasure fleet in the Bay of Matanzas in 1628.The first part of the book is an abridgment of the "histories" of previous authors, such as Acosta, Oviedo and Herrera as well as Peter Martyr, Laet, Staden and Jean de Léry. The second part is an account of about thirty voyages to the Americas from Columbus and Vespucci to Spilbergen and Schouten, a number of them of interest to the history of the Pacific; the third part deals with the voyage of Jacob l'Hermite, the voyage of the eleven vessels of the Nassau Fleet which sailed to establish a safe southern route for the Dutch to their possessions in the East Indies.

        Traité de la sphère et de ses parties où sont déclarés les noms et offices des cercles, tant grands que petits,& leur signification & utilité. Plus le planisphère universel. Ou explication de la sphère plate, oeuvre agréable aux curieux, profitable aux doctes, nécessaire aux navigateurs, & où se trouvent facilement expliquées plusieurs belles et rares propositions.

      Rouen, Jacques Cailloüé, 1631. ____ Première édition. Ce très rare manuel d'astronomie est illustré par 5 planches gravées sur cuivre et un tableau dépliant. Exemplaire complet de la jolie planche dépliante (36 x 30 cm), la "sphère plate universelle" dont l'usage est traité dans les 78 pages suivantes. Elle est signée "Le Vasseur fecit". L'auteur, qui cite Copernic et Tycho Brahé, expose avec prudence les différentes hypothèses. Ainsi des orbes célestes : l'opinion "la plus commune" est que chaque orbe est complètement séparée de l'autre, "sans laisser de vide entre deux". D'autres, pensent que "les étoiles se meuvent là de la même façon que les poissons en l'eau" & les oiseaux en l'air". Cette dernière opinion paraît être celle de l'auteur. - Du monde, de ses parties, de ses mouvements. - Des cercles desquels la sphère matérielle est composée. - Discours des levés et couchés des signes, de la diversité des jours et des nuits & de la division des climats. - Bref discours de la théorie des planètes. - L'usage de la sphère plate universelle. Guillaume Le Vasseur de Beauplan, né en Normandie, était ingénieur ordinaire du Roi et géographe. Il est le premier à avoir publié une carte de Normandie sur une grande échelle. Cet ouvrage a été publié anonymement et sans le consentement de l'auteur, selon une note à la fin. Frère, Manuel du bibliographe normand (I, 82) ne connaissait pas cette première édition, mais cite de cet auteur "L'usage de la sphère plate universelle, oeuvre agréable aux curieux, profitable aux doctes, nécessaire aux navigateurs, & où se trouvent facilement expliquées plusieurs belles et rares propositions", qui est le même ouvrage, publié au Havre en 1673. Bel exemplaire. Provenance : Earls of Macclesfield (ex-libris héraldique gravé et timbre sec sur le titre).***** First edition. A very rare treaty of astronomy, quoting Copernic and Tycho Brahé, written by a royal engineer and cartographer from Normandy. Complete copy with the beautiful folding plate "Sphère plate universelle" and 4 others plates and a tab. In-4. [177 x 128 mm] Collation : (8), 175, (1), 78, (6) pp., 5 planches h.-t. et 1 tabl. Demi-veau à coins, dos à nerfs orné, pièce de titre rouge, tranches rouges. (Reliure du XVIIIe.).
