Thomas Morton
London: printed by W. Stansby, for Robert Mylbourne, 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. [Attributes: First Edition]

Grotius, Hugo
1631. Amsterdam, 1631. 2nd edition, 1st in folio format. The "Most Important" Edition of De Jure Belli ac Pacis Grotius, Hugo [1583-1645]. De Iure Belli ac Pacis Libri Tres. In Quibus Jus Naturae & Gentium: Item Juris Publici Praecipua Explicantur. Editio Secunda Emendatior, & Multis Locis Auctior. Amsterdam: Apud Guilielmum Blaeuw, 1631. [xxiv], 554, [46] pp. Folio (11-1/2" x 7-1/2"). Contemporary vellum with yapp edges, faint early hand-lettered title to spine, later owner signature to front cover, edges rouged. Moderate soiling, spine darkened, some rubbing to extremities with wear to corners, pastedowns loose, chips, tears and other edgewear to endleaves. Title page printed in red and black. Moderate toning, faint dampstaining to head of text block, underlining and annotations in a few places, light soiling and some creases and edgewear to title page. $4,000. * Second edition, the first edition in a folio format, the first edition printed in Amsterdam and the first edition with corrections and additions by the author. Ter Muelen and Diermanse say this is the "most important" of the first five editions because it contains the most authorial corrections, which made it the basis for all later editions produced in the author's lifetime. Of all his numerous works De Jure Belli ac Pacis will always be considered Grotius's magnum opus, the work upon which his reputation most solidly rests. It was "the first expression of the droit naturel, the natural law which exercised the great political theorists of the eighteenth century, and is the foundation of modern international law" … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sumptibus Jacob Cardon, 1631. In-8º. (8)ff, 572, (2), 44, (1) pp. Title-page in red & black, printed fleur-de-lis on frontispice, woodcut head and tailpieces and decorative initial letters. Bound in full contemporary vellum, red title-label on spine, blue edges, occasional light foxing but in very good condition. NIREMBERG was the son of a Tyrolean father and of a Bavarian mother, who belonged to the retinue of María de Austria, daughter of Carlos V. They settled permanently in Spain where Juan Eusebio always lived. They knew Juan Caramuel, with whom Juan Eusebio would close a great friendship. He began studying at the University of Alcalá de Henares, but in 1614 he entered as a novice at Villagarcía de Arosa, despite the opposition of his father, who managed to get him out of there. However, he persisted in his idea and got his father to let him continue. He studied Greek and Hebrew at the College of Huete, and arts and theology at the University of Alcalá with his friend Juan Caramuel between 1618 and 1623. In 1623 he was ordained priest and professed as a Jesuit in 1633. He spent some time in Toledo, but was called to Madrid to teach humanities and natural sciences at the Imperial College of Madrid of the Society of Jesus for six years. Later he was in charge of teaching biblical exegesis and theology for a three-year period. During his time as professor of natural sciences published some scientific works such as Curiosa Philosophy and natural issues (Printing of the Kingdom, Madrid, 1630) and Historia naturae, maxime peregrinae (Antwerp, 1634) written with amenity, but … [Click Below for Full Description]

BLAEU, Willem Janszoon.
Amsterdam, 1631, Latin text edition. Coloured. 380 x 495mm. Paper lightly toned overall. Brazil, orientated with north to the right. The title cartouche is of two indians, an inset map shows the area around Salvador, and vignettes copied from de Bry show a hammock, goats, a battle and cannibals cooking lunch. The plate was engraved by Jodocus Hondius Jnr, son of the Jodocus who purchased the Mercator plates. When he died in 1629 many of his plates were sold to Blaeu, much to the chagrin of the Hondius firm run by Henricus Hondius and Jan Jansson, who were forced to rush the engraving of new plates. This is a very early example of Blaeu's printing, published in the third edition of his 'Appendix Theatri A. Ortelii', a year after his first atlas and four years before the first issue of his 'Novus Atlas'. KOEMAN: Bl 3.

The 'Catholic' disease springs from the sin of man, and is a plague which is sent to evil hearts by Jehovah through evil angels.the essence of disease is corruption by sin.Disease is either acute or chronic, and is undoubtedly affected by the influence of the planets.A large portion of the work treats of the stellary influence on health and disease.The effects of the moon are laid down in certain definite canons. The divine science of numbers is also explained in regard to its relation to disease, and the thirty days of the month have each their influence on the progress of disease. A very large portion of the Catoptron is taken up with a treatise 'De Nomandia, sive Oypomantia'--that is, 'divination' 'per urinam.'

London: Robert Barker: 1631. Contemporary full leather binding, with gilt decoration to the front, spine and rear. Text in double columns. Illustrated by engraved title pages, head and tail piece vignettes and decorated initials. The Bible appears complete, but there is no numbering of pages, so collation is reliant on the register. The beginning portion particularly (Genealogies and introductory matter) appears to begin each section with a new register. (so I cannot be certain that the genealogies is complete. There is NO title page for the Old Testament - beginning with the first page of the book of Genesis. However, the register shows that this page followed properly, and indicates no loss. The full collation is as follows: The Genealogies - title page, verso is dedication to the Christian reader. A Description of Canaan (Two leaves, with text and double page map). Total 3 leaves. (no printer's marks) followed by 8 Trees of Genealogy (B-B4). An Act of Uniformity of Common Prayer. (A2-A7). Dedication to King James (A2)The Old Testament then Begins A3-Yy3 (including the Book of Apocrypha. Engraved title for the New Testament (dated 1631). Pagination continues Yy4-Kkk8. Finis with Barker's imprint and date 1631. The Book of Psalmes is followed by The Whole book of Psalmes collected into English Meater. Which has it's own engraved title page. The collation is A-G3.

Edition Originale et premier tirage de cette très rare et charmante suite dessinée par Isaac Brunn et gravée par le graveur Herman Weyen (mort en 1672). Elle se compose de 8 planches y compris le titre, représentant des miroirs différends richement décorés. Dans chaque miroir est représenté un personnage resté célèbre par la gravité d'une faute commise mais aussi par la repentance et la volonté d'amendament dont il fut preuve ensuite : (David roi de Judée, Manassé roi de Judée, Marie Magdeleine, Zacchaeus de Jéricho, Saint Pierre l'Apôtre, Dismas, le bon larron et Saint Paul). Dessinateur et graveur Isaac Brunn, né en Allemagne, à Pressebourg, en 1590, mort en 1667, vécut et travailla à Strasbourg. On lui doit la publication en 1617 du premier ouvrage sur la célèbre cathédrale de la ville. Cette suite fut très probablement publiée aussi à Strasbourg. Bel exemplaire.

MYDORGE, Claude.
Jean Dedin 1631-39, Paris. Extremely rare first edition, author’s presentation copy, of all four books of this important work on conic sections, intended to provide the geometrical basis for the study of optics. "Mydorge’s work on conic sections contains hundreds of problems published for the first time, as well as a multitude of ingenious and original methods that later geometers frequently used, usually without citing their source" (DSB). Books I and II (pp. 1-134) were first published separately in 1631; a second edition appeared in 1639 with two additional books. The present copy has the first edition of the first two books, with the 1631 title page, bound up with the last two books from the second edition. A printed paper slip Libri quatuor priores has been pasted over Liber primus et secundus on the title to accommodate the added books, and a large section of text has also been pasted over the original on page 67 corresponding to changes in book I made between the 1631 and 1639 editions. The 1631 edition is very much rarer than the 1639: OCLC lists only five copies of the former – Danish Royal Library (but this copy is actually of the 1641 edition), Columbia, NYPL, Zürich, BNF – but 24 of the latter; COPAC adds copies of the 1631 edition at Oxford, Cambridge and UCL. It is likely that the 1631 edition was printed in very small numbers and was mostly, if not entirely, intended for presentation: the copies at Columbia, Zürich and BNF all have authorial corrections. The only other copy of the 1631 edition to have appeared at auction was Michel Chasles’ copy, last sold in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Le premier ouvrage est consacré à la virginité, avec des considérations sur les droits et devoirs des femmes, notamment en matière sexuelle. "Quant au second qui contient, à côté de déclarations des Pères de l'Eglise, des histoires gaillardes, on y trouve des citations des principaux occultistes et démonologues: Aeneas Sylvius, Corneille Agrippa, Mengus, J.

A very scarce and curious volume on the discovery of the West Indies, written in 1524. Its writer was the intimate friend of Columbus, the one whose interest prevailed over Ferdinand to fit out the first expedition in search of unknown lands, and proved the feasability of discovery by mathematical demonstration. Previous to being appointed Bishop of St. Domingo, he had been Ambassador to the Court of Henry VIII of England. Geraldini was born at Amerini about 1455, and as a young man found his way to Spain. At first he became a soldier in the wars against Portugal and next was employed at court in the service of Isabella, then as priest, private secretary, tutor and companion in the household of Ferdinand and Isabella. Soon after, as confidential agent or legate, he was sent to Pope Alexander VI., and to the various princes of Europe, including Henry VIII.
