NEULIGHEM, Anthonio van.
Bierens de Haan 3537; Enhrenberg, Capital and finance in the age of Renaissance, p. 44 (note), 245 (note); STCN (2 copies); Ten Have, pp. 47-53, 57, 293. Second edition, with a newly engraved title-page and following the first edition page-for-page, of a rare Dutch account of "Italian" or double-entry book-keeping, by the Amsterdam merchant Anthonio van Neulighem. The author dedicated the book, on 31 January 1631, to the governors of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) and Dutch West India Company (WIC), and many of the examples used to demonstate methods of book-keeping present data for these multinationals, other existing companies and (prominent) individuals. The first edition was printed and published by Paulus Aertsz van Ravesteyn and has an extract from the privilege assigned to the author on 6 September 1630 printed on the verso of the title-page. ''Door het groot aantal der boeken en de uitvoerige behandeling der voorbeelden is het werk van Van Neulighem van ons van beteekenis'' (Because of the large number of "[account] books" and the extensive treatment of the examples, Van Neulighem's work is of great significance to us -- Ten Have).Professionally restored, notably in the lower outside corner throughout (which also shows water stains) and along the fore-edge of the title-page and a few other leaves, but otherwise in very good condition. Lacking the final blank. Binding warped and stained, but still good. Rare and important work on double-entry bookkeeping as practised in the Dutch Golden Age.

Allerdings scheiterte Ferdinands Versuch, auf dem Regensburger Kurfürstentag 1630 zum römisch-deutschen König gewählt zu werden. Auch die Unterstützung durch seinen Vater brachte keinen Erfolg. Die hier vorliegende Huldigungsschrift - mitten im Dreißigjährigem Krieg - zeigt die Unterstützung des jungen Monarchen durch den mächtigen Jesuitenorden.

London, Printed by I.B[eale]. for Robert Allot, and are To be sold at the signe of the Beare, in Pauls Church-yard, 1631. Sm.f'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; A5, B - I, K - M4; 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's plays were first printed in 1631: 'Bartholomew Fayre', 'The Divell is an Asse' and 'The Staple of Newes'. 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 'The Staple of Newes' as the second title rather than the third), and this is supported to some extent by both the signatures and pagination.

MARIA DE? MEDICI (1575-1642)
A Paris, chez Sebastien Cramosy, 1631. La viscerale ostilità di Maria de? Medici per il suo vecchio collaboratore Richelieu nasceva dal rifiuto della politica estera aggressiva e antispagnola, che doveva apparirle machiavellica e non rispondente agli ideali controriformistici che l?avevano da sempre animata. Luigi XIII decise di troncare l?opposizione al ministro e, il 22 Febbraio 1631, relegò M. nel castello di Compiègne e disperse il suo entourage. Isolata e timorosa di essere inviata in Toscana, M. rifiutò le proposte di trasferirsi nel castello di Moulins e, il 15 Luglio 1631, fuggì dalla sua reclusione, con l?intento di raggiungere la fortezza di La Capelle, al confine con i Paesi Bassi spagnoli, per impadronirsene e trattare con il figlio da una posizione di forza. Di fatto, la scelta di M. risolse quello che per Luigi XIII stava diventando un problema politico spinoso e, non a caso, l?esilio si rivelò definitivo. Da questa data M. non poté più rientrare sul territorio francese e trascorse il resto della vita in sempre più velleitari intrighi per abbattere il potere di Richelieu. In 8vo piccolo (cm. 15,7); pp. 16. Rarissimo. Axs

GOTTFRIED, Johann Ludwig
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. The colonisation and conquest of the Antipodes. 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.

BACON, Sir Francis, Viscount of St. Albans
Paris: Antoine de Sommaville..., 1631. Octavo, woodcut device on title and woodcut initials throughout, with some contemporary ms. annotations; slight staining but a good copy in original vellum. First French edition including the utopian New Atlantis. First French edition of Bacon's Sylva Sylvarum (first published in English in 1626), and thus of Bacon's enormously influential work New Atlantis. It introduced the imaginary voyage into utopia: 'we are told, as shall henceforth often be told in Pacific utopias, just how the author got there: he was on his way from Peru to China and Japan across the Southern Ocean' (Dunmore). The translation is by Pierre d'Amboise. The polymath Bacon (1561-1626) was for many years a highly favoured member of the Jacobean court, but he spent his last years in disgrace after being arraigned on charges of bribery. It was in this retirement that he wrote many of his greatest works, including this sweeping essay on natural history. It concludes with his utopian dream New Atlantis, a Christian utopia governed by the House of Salomon, a college dedicated to the idea that continuing research would lead to the conquest of nature, and thus to the veneration of God. Rees calls this the rather modern notion of the 'research institution as the power-house of an ideal society'. Sylva Sylvarum was the last work written by Bacon before his death in 1626 (he died from bronchitis, the result of a chill caught while stuffing a chicken with snow to see whether it would delay putrefaction).

(XXIV), (XX), 869, (55) pp. *papier sterk gebruind, enkele (oude) onderstrepingen, bibliografische notities voorin bijgeplakt*'Jean de Renou, latinized Renodaeus, of Coutances in Normandy, studied and graduated at Paris, became Royal Councillor and Physician, and was specially devoted to pharmacy. He did a good deal for it (...). His works were translated into French by Louis de Serres, who places him above all his predecessors in the same walk (...). He overturned a multitude of popular errors about the virtues of plants and minerals, though he himself was not devoid of some erroneous notions. Numerous editions of the 'Dispensatorium' are recorded: Paris, 1608, Frankfurt, 1609, 1615, Paris, 1623, Hanau, 1631. The works were printed with Josephus Quercetanus' 'Pharmacopoeia dogmaticorum', edited by Peter Uffenbach'. Ferguson, 235, 254, 481

Varutti-Klefenhausen, Marco (1917 in Hamburg -1989 ebenda):
. 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..

HABICOT (Nicolas).
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. L'Anatomie et la Chirurgie de son temps" (1891).
