        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.

        Mr. William Shakespeare&#39;s Comedies, Histories, and Tragedies

      London: Printed by Tho. Cotes, for Robert Allot, And Are To Be Sold At His Shop, , 1632.. London: Printed by Tho. Cotes, for Robert Allot, And Are To Be Sold At His Shop, 1632. Second Folio Edition. Bound in full leather, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, red morocco spine label, raised bands. This copy has a presentation book-plate for the Century Association Library, New York City, donated by "Wm. M. Allen." For reference to Allen&#39;s donation see the Association&#39;s 1872 Yearbook, "The Library and Art collections have received some important accessions during the year.... and it has been enriched in particular by the valuable collection presented by Mr. William M. Allen." There is a short entry for a Shakespeare Second Folio in their 1879 Catalogue, likely to be this copy. It is estimated that no more than 1000 copies of the Second Folio were printed, and it is believed less than 200 copies are still in existence today. In facsimile is Tempest p. 1/2 , 17/18, 19/ "Two Gentlemen from Verona " p. 20; "Richard III" 173/4; final page of Macbeth and first page of Hamlet 171/2; "Othello" p. 351/2 & 359/; "Anthony and Cleopatra" p. 360 to 364, 3; Cymbeline. The Shakespeare Folios "have an aura of book magic about them. For a bibliophile it is a volume devoutly to be wished for and rarely attained; to a library it is a crowning jewel of a collection&#133; Shakespeare, indeed, is a name to conjure with. No lengthy explanations are needed; he is simply the most distinguished author in the English language" (Legacies of Genius, 36).

        Comune of Cremona "Territorio di Cremona

      Europe: Bologna. Sebastiano Bonomi for the author. 1632. Europe: Bologna. Sebastiano Bonomi for the author. 1632. Copper engraved map of the area of Cremona from Magini&#39;s "Italia, data in luce da Fabio suo figliuolo. "Original old outline colour; verso blank with old ink map number to upper corner. The somewhat naîve colour indicates the borders of the areas. The city of Mantua/ Mantova clearly shown within the lake, below the title cartouche Good impression; original old colour; dampstain to blank margins left & right. Born in Padua 1555, Magini studied astronomy from an early age. He was appointed Lecturer in Astronomy at the University by the Senate of Bolgna in 1588; [ he received the chair in preference to Gallileo]. As a cartographer, Magini&#39;s life&#39;s work was the preparation of "Italia "or the "Atlante geografico d&#39;Italia ".This was intended to include maps of every Italian region with exact nomenclature and historical note and it was eventually printed posthumously by his son Fabio in 1620. He was the first Italian to produce an Atlas of his native country. A major project, the production (begun in 1594) proved expensive and Magini assumed various additional posts in order to fund it, including becoming tutor in mathematics to the sons of Vincenzo Gonzaga, Duke of Mantua, a major patron of the arts and sciences. Magini dedicated the atlas to The Duke of Mantua, who had assisted him with this project helping him obtain cartographical material from the various sovereigns ruling the different Italian states at that time. The governments of Messina and Genoa also assisted Magini financially in this project. Magini did not do any of the mapping himself. The maps derive from different sources, both known and unknown, and therefore represent the result of an original work of critical analysis and compilation. Two of the most famous engravers of the time, Arnoldo Arnoldi and the Englishman Benjamin Wright, were entrusted by Magini to engrave the plates. SECOND EDITION with the engraved hand-coloured portrait of the author dated 1632. Magini&#39;s" Italia "was first issued in 1620 but the second and third edition retained the 1620 date on the title. Magini engraved most of the maps by 1613 and the atlas was substantially completed in his life time, but published posthumously by his son Fabio. It exercised an immense influence that led to the maps being copied within and outside Italy. Magini also edited a new edition of Ptolemy&#39;s Geographia with maps engraved by Girolamo Porro.

Les Essais were first published in 1580 and this translation by John Florio was first published in 1603, our edition having the addition of an index. The engraved title also appears for the first time in this edition, Droeshout being the engraver of the famous portrait of Shakespeare which headed the first folio. "Montaigne (1533-1592) devised the essay form in which to express his personal convictions and private meditations, a form in which he can hardly be said to have been anticipated. The most elaborate essay, the "Apologie de Raimond Sebonde," is second to no other modern writing in attacking fanaticism and pleading for tolerance. He finds a place in the present canon, however, chiefly for his consummate representation of the enlightened scepticism of the sixteenth century, to which Bacon, Descartes, and Newton were to provide the answers in the next".

Housed in a dark red morocco backed folding case and chemise. Title incorporating large engraved portrait of Shakespeare by Martin Droeshout, woodcut head- and tailpieces and initials. Engraved bookplate of Sir Christopher Willoughby, Bart (1748&#150;1808). Early pen-trials on blank recto of the To the Reader leaf including the date 1708; some early pen marks to the Effigies leaf recto, not affecting text, at foot of last leaf of text of The Tempest (B4r), including the name Thomas Thorp, and at the end of the Comedies, Z6r, with the names Joanna White and Richard Carrington; a scatter of tiny ink blots to B2 recto; a small marginal ink cross on D1r. Extremities of binding skilfully restored, front free endpaper extended in head margin. To the Reader leaf with very minor repair to short tear at lower outer corner; short closed tear at foot of title leaf not affecting text; K3 and K4 with short closed tears at foot; N2 torn across lower outer corner, affecting 19 lines in outer column, the whole corner neatly supplied from another genuine copy; short closed tear at head of d2 just touching headline; longer tear at foot of d6, affecting 26 lines but without loss, partly stitched and with old paper reinforcement on verso below the text; small marginal paper flaw in h3; small hole in ee4 affecting a couple of letters either side of the leaf; small tear across upper outer corner of ss3, outer corner of frame supplied in facsimile; very minor paper restoration at head of ccc3&#150;4; minor restoration in gutter of final leaf; some minor spots or small stains, but generally clean and fresh, a very good copy, tall and well-margined, in a handsome early panelled calf binding. Second folio edition, Todd&#39;s first issue, the edition of which William Prynne complained that it was printed on best crown paper. It is estimated that the original edition was of 1,000 copies, shared between the five publishers listed in the colophon, all of whom were proprietors of rights to one or more of the plays. This copy is one of the copies printed for Robert Allot, who took the lion&#39;s share. The book is also notable for containing the first appearance in print of John Milton, his lines printed on the Effigies leaf. This copy is Todd&#39;s first issue, with the Effigies leaf in Smith&#39;s state C (initial "S" against a filigreed background). As Todd showed in 1953, copies of the first issue of the Second Folio were printed and sold in the manner stated on the title page in 1632; later issues, although still dated 1632, have the title and conjugate Effigies leaf on thicker paper and were sold by Allot&#39;s successors sometime between 1636 and 1641.

        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&#39;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&#39; Medici, queen of France, who exerted great influence after the assassination of Marie&#39;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.

        The Tragedie of Macbeth; The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmarke

      [London: printed by Tho. Cotes, for Robert Allot,, 1632]. Folio (325 × 221 mm), 26 leaves, pp. [251]&#150;302 (pp. 251-268 mis-paginated 152-168). Modern calf-backed marbled boards, titles gilt direct to spine, speckled edges. Some spots and stains, including some small reddish-brown stains to pp. 156-7, giving the not inappropriate impression that someone has bled over the scene attending the murder of Duncan, gentle crinkling to the leaves, but all the leaves notably uncreased and untorn; very good condition indeed. Two of Shakespeare&#39;s universally acknowledged masterpieces, extracted from a copy of the second Shakespeare folio, where they are fifth and sixth among the tragedies (the last page of Macbeth and the first page of Hamlet constituting the recto and verso of a single leaf, thus practically necessitating their extraction as a pair). While there were two texts of Hamlet printed in quarto before 1623, the folio text of Hamlet is different from either. Since it was the players who brought copies of Shakespeare&#39;s plays to the publishers of the First Folio, it has been argued that the text of any play in a folio edition would be closest to that presented on stage at the Globe. Many modern critics, such as G. R. Hubbard, following Stanley Wells and Gary Taylor, regard the folio text of Hamlet as Shakespeare&#39;s personal revision of the best quarto text. Macbeth, another of Shakespeare&#39;s most popular plays, was never published during his lifetime, so it is not surprising that the only text which we have of this play - first published in 1623 - is problematic, probably derived from a Jacobean playhouse script, with various materials added by Thomas Middleton. This is example is in better condition, and notably taller-trimmed, than usually met with - hence a lovely copy of the earliest feasibly obtainable printings of Hamlet and Macbeth.

        Nova Virginæ Tabula. "

      Americas: Amsterdam, Johannis Cloppenburgji. 1632. Copper engraved map of Virginia and the Chesapeake Bay area derived from John Smith&#39;s map of 1612, from "Gerardi Mercatoris, Atlas sive Cosmographicae Meditationes de Fabrica mundi et fabricati figura, "Latin text to verso. Dark impression; toned; minor spotting and dampstaining to blank margins darker damp stain to upper margin. Worm hole to just outside engraved right scale. The "Atlas Minor" of Gerhard Mercator appears in various formats, the first published by Jodicus Hondius in 1607 with plates he most likely engraved himself. Thereafter there appeared a number of editions. In 1628 Johannes Janssonius published a new series of editions, the plates engraved by Petrus Kaerius and Abraham Goos. Both of these were small format atlases in the tradition of that published by Langenes. In 1630 Johannes Cloppenburg published a French edition in a somewhat larger size, followed by this Latin edition in 1632. The plates were in the main engraved by Petrus Kaerius. Cloppenburg published the Altas at his own expense "sumptibus"as the imprint states. There was one more edition in 1636 with French text. Due to thier larger size the maps from the Cloppenberg editions have more information, than those of Hondius and Janssonius, and are considered by some sholars as a true reduction of the maps of Mercator, as they appear in the folio Atlas.

        The East Ligurian Riviera "Riviera di Genova di Levante

      Europe: Bologna. Sebastiano Bonomi for the author. 1632. Copper engraved map of the coast of Liguria, from Genova to Spezia ,from Magini&#39;s "Italia, data in luce da Fabio suo figliuolo. "Original old outline colour; verso blank with old ink map number to upper corner. The somewhat naîve colour indicates the borders of the areas: Genova to the Apenines [ faded yellow]; green to show the "Stato del Prencipe Landi"; red for "Carrara" ;but not clear why some of the rivers are orange . Good impression; original old colour. Born in Padua 1555, Magini studied astronomy from an early age. He was appointed Lecturer in Astronomy at the University by the Senate of Bolgna in 1588; [ he received the chair in preference to Gallileo]. As a cartographer, Magini&#39;s life&#39;s work was the preparation of "Italia "or the "Atlante geografico d&#39;Italia ".This was intended to include maps of every Italian region with exact nomenclature and historical note and it was eventually printed posthumously by his son Fabio in 1620. He was the first Italian to produce an Atlas of his native country. A major project, the production (begun in 1594) proved expensive and Magini assumed various additional posts in order to fund it, including becoming tutor in mathematics to the sons of Vincenzo Gonzaga, Duke of Mantua, a major patron of the arts and sciences. Magini dedicated the atlas to The Duke of Mantua, who had assisted him with this project helping him obtain cartographical material from the various sovereigns ruling the different Italian states at that time. The governments of Messina and Genoa also assisted Magini financially in this project. Magini did not do any of the mapping himself. The maps derive from different sources, both known and unknown, and therefore represent the result of an original work of critical analysis and compilation. Two of the most famous engravers of the time, Arnoldo Arnoldi and the Englishman Benjamin Wright, were entrusted by Magini to engrave the plates. SECOND EDITION with the engraved hand-coloured portrait of the author dated 1632. Magini&#39;s" Italia "was first issued in 1620 but the second and third edition retained the 1620 date on the title. Magini engraved most of the maps by 1613 and the atlas was substantially completed in his life time, but published posthumously by his son Fabio. It exercised an immense influence that led to the maps being copied within and outside Italy. Magini also edited a new edition of Ptolemy&#39;s Geographia with maps engraved by Girolamo Porro. Graesse IV, 336; Nordenskiold 2 137; Shirley BL, T.MAG-1a. Europe Italy & Malta Genova Liguria.

At an early age he was interested in ichthyology, published De Vi et Natura Animalium in 1533. The present book is one of the earliest commentaries on the Thracian Bosphorus and its topography and people.

Bohme a German philosophical mystic who had a profound influence on such later intellectual movements as idealism and Romanticism. Born of poor parents in Goerlitz Germany, as a boy he tended cattle, later becoming a shoemaker, marrying & fathering 4 children. & & Boehme, at the robust age of 37 in 1612, wrote his first treatise Aurora, oder Die Morgenroete in Aufgang. In 1613, an unauthorized copy of the manuscript was copied and circulated by Karl von Ender. Its reception "raised him out of his homely sphere, and made him the centre of a local circle of liberal thinkers, considerably above him in station and culture." However, the local pastor primarius of Gorlitz, Gregorius Richter, leveled a charge of heresy. The local muncipal council administered an admonishment to no further "meddle in such matters." This charge Boehme [publicly] followed for 5 years. In 1618 Boehme again started writing expository & polemical treatises. The majority of his works were written, though not formally published, from 1619 - 1624. A second major work, Der Weg zu Christo, was published in 1624, and signaled a renewal of clerical hostility. Boehem, however, was destined to suffer but a short period of this second persecution; he died of an illness on 17 November 1624. & & Boehme has been said to have a "fertility of ideas" and a "trasncendent greatness of religious insight." Boehme was studied by Sir Isaac Newton and influenced the work Henry More, as well as [and especially] William Law [1686 - 1761]. "Poets such as Milton, Tieck, Novalis and William Blake found inspiration in Boehme&#39;s writings. ... Hegel went as far as to say that Boehme was &#39;the first German philosopher.&#39;" [Wiki]. . Engraved title leaf. Folding plate.
