        Les Bergeries de Mre Honorat de Bueil chevalier sieur de Racan Dédiées a

      à Paris: Chez Toussainct du Bray, 1632. Fine. Chez Toussainct du Bray, à Paris 1632, In 8 (11x16,8cm), 207pp. (1), relié. - Fifth Edition, the latest revised and corrected by the author. Printing Italics. Bound in full sheepskin textured brown vintage. Smooth back nicely decorated. Part of title in red morocco. Foxing. nice copy. According to Louis Arnoult, Racan (Anecdotal History and criticism of his life and his works. Paris, A. Colin. 1896), this is the best edition of Bergeries. It is preceded by numerous rooms, the Epistle to the king, The ode to the king, various sonnets to himself, writing Malherbe. Racan wrote this pastoral drama when he was enamored of Catherine Bath, alias Arthénice in 1619. Caught in the turmoil of war, being himself a soldier, he will not return to his work much later. It is considered the most brilliant student of Malherbe, whom he met in 1605. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Cinquième édition, la dernière revue et corrigée par l'auteur. Impression en Italiques.  Reliure en pleine basane granitée brune d'époque. Dos lisse joliment orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Rousseurs. bel exemplaire. Selon Louis Arnoult, Racan, (Histoire anecdotique et critique de sa vie et de ses œuvres. Paris, A. Colin. 1896), il s'agit de la meilleure édition des Bergeries. Elle est précédée de nombreuses pièces, l'epître au roi, L'ode au roi, divers sonnets à lui-même, lettre à Malherbe. Racan composa cette pastorale dramatique lorsqu'il fut épris de Catherine de Thermes, alias Arthénice, en 1619. Pris dans les tumultes de la guerre, étant lui-même soldat, il ne reviendra à son oeuvre que bien plus tard. On le considère comme le plus brillant élève de Malherbe, qu'il rencontra en 1605.

        Directorium generale uranometricum in quo trigonometriae logarithmicae fundamenta. [isued with:] Tabula ca trigonom. logarithmica.

      Bologna, Nicolo Tebaldini, 1632 - 2 parts in one vol, 4to (227 x 160 mm), pp [xvi] 330 [vi] [mispaginated 1-152; 157-164; 161-330; ff [160], with woodcut diagrams in text and large folding letterpress table printed on both sides; a few gatherings with some slight browning, a very nice copy in contemporary limp vellum, lettered in ink on spine 'Cavaler. Uranometricum', split in spine but sound and without loss. £10,000First edition of Cavalieri's first publication. 'It was this work that introduced logarithms into Italy, but as it was in Latin, that honor is often given to the author's later works written in Italian. Besides introducing logarithms, the work deals with spherical triangles, and Cavalieri introduces a new formula for calculating the area of a spherical triangle.'The tables consist of two major logarithmic tables, one trigonometric and the other numeric. A large errata is included at the end. These logarithmic tables are much more detailed than those appearing in Cavalieri's later Italian publications and have entries to every second of the arc whereas the later ones are only to every minute' (Tomash and Williams, Erwin Tomash Library of the History of Computing I pp 266-7).In order to be reconfirmed in his chair at Bologna, 'Cavalieri published his Directorium generale Uranometricum, the exceptional logarithmic tables he had compiled. The work is divided into three parts, devoted to logarithms, plane trigonometry, and spherical trigonometry, respectively. In addition to noteworthy innovations in terminology, the work includes important demonstrations of John Napier's rules of the spherical triangle and of the theorem of the squaring of each spherical triangle that, attributed to Albert Girard, was later claimed by Joseph Lagrange' (Biographical Encyclopedia of Astronomy p 211).The first part introduces the concept of logarithms, and proceeds with detailed examples of their use in astronomy, geometry, perspective, architecture, mechanics, geography, etc. Cavalieri particulary emphasises their utility in making astronomical calculations. The second part contains extensive logarithmic and trigonometric tables derived from Napier and Briggs.Bonaventura Cavalieri (1598-1647) studied mathematics under Galileo's friend Benedetto Castelli in Pisa; later he secured the chair of mathematics at the University of Bologna in part through the intercession of Galileo, who wrote a letter of recommendation in which he praised Cavalieri's mathematical skills, and said 'few, if any, since Archimedes, have delved as far and as deep into the science of geometry'. Cavalieri became one of Galileo's most important disciples and advocates; there are 112 letters recorded that he wrote to Galileo. Cavalieri held the chair from 1629 until his death eighteen years later. He was one of the first Bolognan professors to teach the Copernican theory. He published eleven books on the sciences in Bologna, of which this was the first. He made major contributions to optics, astronomy, and mathematics, particularly to a systematic method of indivisibles that was an important precursor of the calculus.Carli and Favaro 131; Cinti 91; Riccardi I 332; Tomash and Williams C48

        ESSAYES OR MORALL, POLITIKE, AND MILITARIE DISCOURSES... Whereunto is Now Newly Added an Index of the Principall Matters and Personages Mentioned in This Booke [Translated by John Florio]

      London: Printed by M. Flesher for Rich Royston, 1632. Early printing of this great work, the third of Florio's translation, with the scarce A1 leaf printed on the verso only, "To the beholder of this title." This is the First Edition to contain the "Index of the Principall Matters" and the first to contain the Droeshout engraved architectural title-page. Engraved architectural title-page by Martin Droeshout, decorative woodcut headpieces and capitals throughout. Folio, bound in contemporary paneled calf, the covers with central panel blind ruled and rolled, the spine with raised bands, tan morocco lettering label gilt. [1, Beholder of the This Title], title, [1], Engraved title,[10], 631, [12 Table or Index] pp. collated complete as called for. A handsome and well preserved copy in its original contemporary antique binding, the book crisp and clean throughout with occasional and very minor age evidence, the "To the Beholder of This Title" leaf laid down, the binding sturdy and very well preserved and in quite pleasing condition showing authentic age, the hinges sometime refurbished incorporating all of the original materials. A CORNERSTONE WORK IN PRINTING AND THE MIND OF MAN, ONE OF THE GREAT BOOKS, AND AN IMPORTANT EDITION. This is an uncommonly handsome copy of this work. This third edition was the first to include the highly useful index. Florio's was the first translation of Montaigne into English, and remains among the best-known because of its beautiful language. The Montaigne translation is considered Florio's magnum opus. Montaigne was one of the great European intellectuals of the 16th century and is often credited with being the father of the modern essay. His works were of great influence to Descartes, Pascal, Bacon and Swift. Later in America, Ralph Waldo Emerson and his fellow transcendentalists would be highly influenced by Montaigne. Montaigne wrote these essays during a most calamitous period in European history, and to which he frequently calls attention. The religious and civil confusion resulting from the break up of Christian unity in Europe, the frequently violent disturbances which followed Luther's challenge to Papal authority at the start of the sixteenth century, the constant religious and political fighting throughout Europe as different peoples and groups tried to establish or reestablish their authority was exacerbated still more by the shattering of the devout religious confidence which had been observed so perfectly in Hildegard and Dante. This awesome conflict on the continent was not resolved until 1648. Montaigne?s Essays evoke to the highest level, the struggle of the intellectual in this cathartic period. And one essay in particular is especially important in the history of English theatre for ?the Canniballs? is credited with being a primary influence for William Shakespeare?s TEMPEST.

        Le Grand Voyage du Pays des Hurons, situ? en l'Am?rique vers la Mer douce, ?s derniers confins de la nouvelle France, dite Canada É Avec un dictionaire de la langue Huronne [bound with:] Dictionaire de la Langue Huronne

      Paris: Chez Denys Moreau, ru? St. Jacques, ? la Salamandre s'Argent, 1632. First edition. Extra engraved title; [22], 380, [2]; 12, [146], [14] pp. (a8, e8, A-Z8, a-k8). 8vo (6-9/16 x 4-1/4 in.). Modern crushed red morocco by Palomino, in blue morocco chemise and marbled slipcase. ?'One of the most important early works on the North American Indian?" This "work of great interest and importance" (Sabin), an account of R?collet lay-brother Sagard's missionary work in Huronia, contains the FIRST PRINTED DICTIONARY OF THE HURON LANGUAGE and is the primary non-Jesuit source on Huron life and life on the R?collet mission to Canada from 1615 to 1629 (Streeter). Sagard was a missionary to the Huron nation from 1623-24, and this work is based on his time in Huronia as well as the accounts, documents, and letters of his contemporaries. It is an engaging, sympathetic portrayal of Huron life and an exhaustive document of Huron culture. Sagard's tenure was brief--according to Field he was ?'worn down by the privations and sufferings of a missionary life,?" though by other accounts he achieved some success in his work--and he returned to France to write his GRAND VOYAGE. A work of immense importance and scarcity, rarely found complete and "One of the most important early works on the North American Indian" (Church).

        The essayes or, Morall, politike, and militarie discourses of Lord Michael de Montaigne, Knight of the noble Order of Saint Michael, and one of the gentlemen in ordinary of the French Kings chamber [translation by John Florio]. The Third Edition. Whereunto is now newly added an Index of the principall matters and personages mentioned in this Booke

      London: Printed by M. Flesher, for Rich: Royston, in Ivie-lane next the exchequer office, 1632. Third edition in English. Additional engraved title page by Martin Droeshout; [14], 161 [i.e. 631], [13] pp. Folio. Contemporary panelled calf, rebacked, with gilt lettered spine label; endpapers renewed, but the original, with copious annotations in a contemporary hand, have been preserved. Covers slightly scuffed, closed tear in engraved title skillfully repaired and its outer edge extended, faint dampstaining to lower outer corners of text block, otherwise a very attractive, sturdy copy, with the armorial bookplate of William Hutton. Third edition in English. Additional engraved title page by Martin Droeshout; [14], 161 [i.e. 631], [13] pp. Folio. "Will be read to the end of the world". Montaigne's immortal, pioneering Essaies first appeared in 1580, and John Florio's translation, which became the standard for Elizabethan England, was first published in 1603. Although this third edition was published after Florio's death in 1625, it was printed from a corrected copy of the second edition of 1613. It had an enormous impact on English writers - most notably on Francis Bacon, who adopted the new form in his own Essays (first ed., 1597). Then there is the case of William Shakespeare, whose patron, the 3rd Earl of Southampton was tutored by Florio. It is generally conceded that Montaigne's essay "On Cannibals" was a direct source for Shakespeare's The Tempest, and some (e.g., George Coffin Taylor, Shakespeare's Debt to Montaigne, 1925) have argued that both Hamlet, in particular, and King Lear were also directly influenced. It is interesting to note that the engraved title page which first appears in this edition, is by Martin Droeshout, artist of the celebrated portrait which adorns the folio editions of Shakespeare. The original endsheets of this fascinating copy bear the copious annotations of an anonymous early owner, probably from the late 17th or early 18th century, quoting several excerpts in English translation from Pascal's Pensées, St. Evremond's "On the Exactness of Reasoning," and La Bruyère's Caractères (in French) - all regarding Montaigne's book, which, as the citation from Saint-Evremond written here on the endsheets has it, "will be read to the end of the world".

        Dialogo . . . massimi sistemi del mondo Tolemaico, e Copernicano. Bound with: Le operazioni del compasso geometrico (3rd ed.)

      Florence: Gio. Battista Landini, 1632. Galilei, Galileo (1564-1642). (1) Dialogo di Galileo Galilei Linceo . . . sopra i due massimi sistemi del mondo Tolemaico, e Copernicano. [8], 458, [32]pp. Woodcut text illustrations. Lacking engraved frontispiece and final blank. Florence: Gio. Battista Landini, 1632. (2) Le operazioni del compasso geometrico et militare. Terza edizione. [8], 80pp. Folding engraved plate, woodcut text illustrations. Padua: Paolo Frambotto, 1649. Together 2 works in 1, 4to. 222 x 160 mm. Late 19th or early 20th century vellum, gilt-lettered spine label; front free endpaper lacking. Minor dampstaining in the Dialogo, with small marginal tear in one leaf neatly mended. Very good, crisp copies. Bookplate (dated 1894) of the Durham Cathedral Library.(1) First Edition. Eight years after Pope Paul V had forbidden him to teach Copernican theory, Galileo received permission from a new Pope, Urban VIII, to discuss Copernican astronomy in a book, so long as that book provided equal and impartial discussions of the Church-approved Ptolemaic system. Galileo?'s Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems held to the letter of this command: the device of the dialogue, between a spokesman for Copernicus, one for Ptolemy and Aristotle, and an educated layman, allowed Galileo to remain technically uncommitted. After the book?'s publication, however, Urban took offense at what he felt to be its jibes against himself and ordered Galileo to be tried by the Inquisition in Rome. Galileo was sentenced to permanent house arrest and forced to abjure all Copernican ?"heresy.?" The Dialogo was suppressed by the Church five months after its publication and formally condemned in June 1633; the work was placed on the Index librorum prohibitorum, where it remained until 1835. ?"In 1615 [Galileo] was officially silenced as regards the truth of astronomy. The Dialogo was designed both as an appeal to the great public and as an escape from silence. In the form of an open discussion between three friends—intellectually speaking, a radical, a conservative, and an agnostic—it is a masterly polemic for the new science. It displays all the great discoveries in the heavens which the ancients had ignored; it inveighs against the sterility, willfulness, and ignorance of those who defend their systems; it revels in the simplicity of Copernican thought and, above all, it teaches that the movement of the earth makes sense in philosophy, that is in physics. Astronomy and the science of motion, rightly understood, says Galileo, are hand in glove. There is no need to fear that the earth?'s rotation will cause it to fly to pieces. So Galileo picked up one thread that led straight to Newton. The Dialogo, far more than any other work, made the heliocentric system a commonplace?" (Printing and the Mind of Man). Carli & Favaro, Bibliografia Galileiana, 128. Cinti, Biblioteca Galileiana, 89. Dibner, Heralds of Science, 8. Horblit 18c. Norman 858. Printing and the Mind of Man 128. (2) Third edition. Galileo?'s proportional compass, which he began manufacturing in 1597, was the most useful and successful calculating instrument until the invention of the slide rule in the mid-nineteenth century. In 1606 Galileo issued his Operazioni del compasso containing instructions on how to use the device; this first edition is a legendary rarity, as it was privately printed in an edition of only 60 copies. A second edition, with a small plate illustrating the compass, was published in 1640. The third edition is an exact reprint of the 1640 edition, but with a significantly larger plate.

      1632. FIRENS, Petro. Piscium Vivae Icones in Aes Incisae et Editae Ab Petro Firens. 20 ff. Illustrated with 20 numbered engravings, all laid down. Oblong 4to., 178 x 265 mm, bound in full 19th-century pigskin, gilt title placed within gilt circle stamped onto front cover, four raised bands with gilt title on spine. N.P., n.d. [Paris: Pierre Mariette, ca. 1650?]. A suite of twenty numbered engraved plates illustrating 82 various water creatures after Adriaen Collaert -- fish, shells, seals, frogs, turtles, shellfish, swordfish, blowfish, eels, lizards, lobsters, a sting ray, a dolphin, and a walrus -- shown four or five to a page in creative combinations against a white background, with the Latin name of each animal engraved above it. While mostly accurate, the depictions are also inventive, giving wing-like flippers to the walrus and lively expressions to many of the fish. Petro Firens (Pierre Fierens, 1580-1638) was a prolific Flemish engraver working mainly in Paris, where he was appointed graveur du Roi. He is remembered for ornamental and scientific suites such as this. Manuscript numbering in the upper corner of each plate indicates this book was previously bound with another, however the engravings form a complete set. Laid down on thick paper stock.

        Africae. Descripto IX. lib. absoluta.

      Lugd. Batav., Elzevir, 1632. First Elzevir printing, two parts in one volume, originally published in 1550. 24mo. 800pp. (two volumes bound in one, paginated consecutively). Contemporary full brown calf, spine in 5 compartments, gilt title and decorations. Top of spine and frontcover on the hingings a bit worn. With engraved title page. Translated into Latin from the original Italian. Overall a fine copy. Leo Africanus, born Al-Hassan ibn-Wazzani, was born a slave in Granada of African descent. Because of his outstanding literary ability (he had already written a draft of this book in Arabic when he was captured), the Medici Pope Leo X freed him, converted him to Christianity and became his patron. This book, a detailed account of Africa, its trade routes, geography, terrain and people was an exceptionally important source for information on the continent and is generally considered the first book written by a person of primarily African descent. Blockson 101 #1: "Any edition of Africanus works is rare and is the cornerstone of any collection of African history.".

        UNHAPPY PROSPERITIE EXPRESSED IN THE HISTORIES OF AELIUS SEIANUS AND PHILIPPA THE CATANIAN. Written in French by P. Matthieu and translated into English by Sr Th. Hawkins

      London, printed by John Haviland for Godfrey Emondson, 1632.. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION 1632, translated by Sir Thomas Hawkins. Small 4to, 190 x 140 mm, 7½ x 5½ inches, engraved pictorial title page, dated title page to second part but register and pagination continuous, pages: (4), 299, bound in contemporary full vellum, hand lettered to spine. Most copies like ours just have the engraved title without the letterpress title, a few have just a letterpress title. Some discolouration to vellum, some light rust staining to lower cover, head of spine just slightly worn, ties lacking, short closed tear to fore-edge of front endpaper and title page, neatly repaired with no loss, signature on front endpaper, occasional small pale stain, otherwise contents clean and bright. Binding tight and firm. A very good copy of a scarce book. The first part is a translation of "Aelius Sejanus, histoire romaine" by Pierre Matthieu. It is translated into English as a satire on the fall of George Villiers, Duke of Buckingham. The second part is a translation of "Histoire des prosperitez malheureuses d'une femme cathenoise, grande seneschalle de Naples" also by Matthieu, based on a story from "De casibus illustrium virorum" by Giovanni Boccaccio. Both works are supposed to have been written by Matthieu originally to represent the rise and fall of Concino Concini and his wife, Leonora Galigai. Concino Concini, (d. 1617), was a Florentine adventurer, favourite of Marie de' Medici, queen of France, who exerted great influence after the assassination of Marie's husband, Henry IV in 1610, and succeeded the duke of Sully as first minister. His greed and his spy system won him the hatred of all classes. His efforts to weaken the nobility provoked an unsuccessful revolt (1615) led by Henri II de Condé. In 1617, Louis XIII had Concini assassinated. His wife, Leonora Galigaï (1571?-1617), lady in waiting and favorite of the queen, was beheaded and burned for sorcery.

        Cautio criminalis, seu de processibus contra sagas liber ... auctore incerto theologo romano

      Frankfurt, Gronaeus, 1632 (2. Aufl.).. 15 x 9,5cm, späterer Pappband, Deckelbezug mit kleinen Defekten, altes grünes Rückenschild, neueres Signaturschildchen , alte Besitzeinträge auf inn. Spiegel, hier auch kleiner Bibl.-Stempel und auf Titelseite verso, alte Annotationen auf Titel, 7 (von 8) Bl., 459 S.. "Wenn auch nicht die früheste Schrift gegen die Hexenwahn, so war es doch die erste erfolgreiche: sofort nach Amtsantritt als Kurfürst von Mainz verbot Johann Philipp van Schönborn alle weiteren Hexenverbrennungen, die wenig Jahre zuvor bei Schriftstellern wie Albertinus noch aktive Unterstützung gefunden haben" (Dünnhaupt p.3928). On the author and this work, see extensively the introd. by Marcus Hellyer to the English translation (Univ. of Virginia Press, 2003): "(...) Its title, Cautio Criminalis, was generic, simply meaning a warning in a matter of criminal law. But its subtitle, or a Book on Witch Trials (seu de Processibus contra Sagas Liber), identified its real content. Unlike many books published in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, however, it did not encourage the princes to hunt, try and burn witches or instruct judges and inquisitors on how to identify witches and force them to confess. Rather, it argued that the plague of witches supposedly infesting Germany was the product of the trials themselves and urged princes to supervise trials closely, to regulate the use of torture strictly, and even to end witch trials entirely. (...) Since then the Cautio Criminalis, a cry of conscience from the very epicenter of the witch-hunts, has become known as one of the most stirring examples of an individual speaking truth to power. Its author drew on personal experience, telling arguments, unerring logic, love of complete strangers, and a commitment to defend the innocent to produce a work that retains its enduring appeal almost four centuries after it first appeared." (p.VIIf). GOEDECKE III, 195

His atlas The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine was published in 1610/11, and contained the first set of individual county maps of England and Wales besides maps of Ireland [five in all] and a general map of Scotland. Most, but not all, of the county maps have town plans on them; those showing a Scale of Passes being the places he had mapped himself. In 1627, two years before his death, Speed published Prospect Of the Most Famous Parts of the World which was the first world atlas produced by an Englishman. There is a fascinating text describing the areas shown on the back of the maps in English, although a rare edition of 1616 of the British maps has a Latin text ?" this is believed to have been produced for the Continental market. Much of the engraving was done in Amsterdam at the workshop of Jodocus Hondius. His maps of English counties are often found framed in homes throughout the United Kingdom.Condition:Condition is Good/Very Good.  Some wear to edges/hinges, few scuffs to boards, repair to surface tear to two compartments to mid spine/visual crack/gold trim retouched, first few pages have a wrinkle to them/tattered edges, no frontispiece, some glue/color added to hinges holding very well, pages for age are very good/excellent, text block is very good.  Overall, for over 380 years old its in Good/Very Good Condition!!!

        Africae. Descripto IX. lib. absoluta

      Lugd. Batav [Leiden]: Elzevir [Elsevier,], 1632 2 volumes in one paginated consecutively. 800+[16 index] pages. Small duodecimo (4 1/2 x 2 1/2") bound in full leather with raised spine bands and gilt lettering to spine, heal and for edge pages marbled. Originally published in 1550. In the seventeenth century, at the zenith of Dutch mercantilism, Leiden was an international university center, and the pocket editions produced by the Dutch firm of Elzevir, at a standard price of one guilder for 500 small duodecimo pages, became known throughout Europe.Joannes Leo Africanus was a Moorish diplomat and author who is best know for his book Descrittione dell'Africa describing the geography of North Africa. Most of what is known about his life is gathered from autobiographical notes in his own work. He was born in Granada around 1494 but his family moved to Fez soon after his birth. As a young man he accompanied an uncle on a diplomatic mission to the Maghreb, reaching as far as the city of Timbuktu, then part of the Songhai Empire. In 1517 when returning from a diplomatic mission to Constantinople on behalf of the Sultan of Fez Muhammad II he found himself in Rosetta during the Ottoman conquest of Egypt. He continued his journey through Cairo and Aswan and across the Red Sea to Arabia. On his way back to Tunis in 1518 he was captured by Spanish corsairs. He was taken to Rome and initially imprisoned in the Castel Sant' Angelo but when his captors realized his importance he was freed and presented to Pope Leo X. Leo Africanus left Rome and spent the next three or four years traveling in Italy. While staying in Bologna he wrote an Arabic-Hebrew-Latin medical vocabulary, of which only the Arabic part has survived, and a grammar of Arabic of which only an eight-page fragment has survived. He returned to Rome in 1526 under the protection of Pope Clement VII. According to Leo, he completed his manuscript on African geography in the same year. The work was published in Italian with the title Della descrittione dell?Africa et delle cose notabili che iui sono, per Giovan Lioni Africano in 1550 by the Venetian publisher Giovanni Battista Ramusio. The book proved to be extremely popular and was reprinted five times. It was also translated into other languages. French and Latin editions were published in 1556 while an English version was published in 1600 with the title A Geographical Historie of Africa. The Latin edition, which contained many errors and mistranslations, was used as the source for the English translation.Condition:Leather chipped away at front heal hinge heavily rubbed with cracked hinges, some worming affecting the back leather, corners bumped and rubbed through else a good copy.

        His Wife - with the Addition of New Characters and Many Other Wittie Conceits Never Before Printed

      Printed By R.B. For Robert Allot, Paul's Churchyard,London 1632 - Quite an early issue of the celebrated poem by the Seventeenth Century English poet, essayist and courtier of King James I. To cut a long story short, Overbury was imprisoned in the Tower of London by King James for disrespect in 1613 - and slowly poisoned under the orders of Lady Essex, mistress of Lord Rochester . As Robert Carr, soon to become favourite to the King, Rochester was originally Overbury's best friend, but they fell out over the latter's affair with the youthful and already infamous countess of Essex who was led to believe that the poem had been written to open Lord Rochester's eyes to her defects.The murder conspiracy was uncovered after Overbury's death and Lady Essex was brought to trial with other conspirators, whom she had enlisted.Her accomplices were executed but she was pardoned, although she had pleaded guilty.This edition of one of the most widely popular books of the 17th century - its popularity hugely boosted by the notoriety of the whole messy business - contains numerous elegies to the unfortunate poet as well as the lengthy essay, entitled 'Characters or wittie descriptions of the properties of sundry persons,'much of which was not written by Overbury himself.There are 76 characters described here from every level of society. Characterisations include a good woman, a Chamber- maid and milk- maid as well as a tinker, hypocrite and sailor, and even a French cook and a drunken Dutchman.This copy includes other essay fragments - spurious additions to the snowball of Overbury's works.The additional writings gathered here include:'Newes from any whence or old truth under a fuppofall of Noveltie'; 'Paradoxes as they were fpoken in a Maske, and prefented before his Maiefty at White-Hall' and 'The Mountebankes receipts' - the first being an approved recipe against feminine melancholy, and finally three songs. This collection is presented here in a neat and attractive 20th century craft binding in brown full calf leather.Entitled 'Overbury's Characters', It has gilt lettering and pleasing blind decoration on spine and nicely designed blind decoration on both front and back covers.The original text is bound up complete with title page of 'His Wife' and, is unpaginated but, including sundry writings with their title pages,consists of 300 or so pages.Older endpapers have been used to blend in with the age of the book and these have become slightly foxed, while there is a slight split down the joint fron the top edge on the rear endpaper.Head of spine is a little rubbed and there is just a little more rubbing along the outer joint nearer the tail; the word 'characters' in the second line of the title is tilted slightly down; the gilt on some of the letters is a little smudged; the initial title page is slightly frayed at the foredge with owner's inked initials at head and several other neat ink annotations, two of which appear to have been unsuccessfully blotted out, because although they has been covered, the lettering remains distinct. the text pages following are generally clean and in good condition for their age with just occasional foxing, light creasing and some darkening - mainly seen at page edges, but the text block is particularly darkened and stained on the top edge.The paper and print quality varies - some leaves are of a heavier weight, while a few appear light and rather fragile; the print on a few pages is pale, while on others it is particularly bold; just a few sheets are slightly nicked or frayed at the foredge. Despite faults noted, overall the binding is sound and bright, while the interior tex is in in good condition for its age. 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall [Attributes: Hard Cover]
