        De Symmetria partium in rectis formis humanorum corporum / De varietate figurarum et flexuris partium ac gestibus imaginum

      Nürnberg: Hieronymus Formschneyder, 1632 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. De Symmetria partium in rectis formis humanorum corporum, Libri in Latinum conversi (per J. Camerarium). Nürnberg: in aedib. viduae Durerianae, 1532. Folio (313x206 mm). 80 unnumbered leaves (last blank), Dürer's woodcut monogram on title - [Bound with]: De varietate figurarum et flexuris partium ac gestib(us) imaginum, libri duo, qui priorib(us) de symmetria quondam editis, nunc primum in Latinum conversi (per eodem) accesserunt. Nürnberg: Hieronymus Formschneyder (i.e. Andreä) for Dürer's Widow, 1534. 55 (of 60, including 1 blank) unnumbered leaves. Both works with 145 full-length outline woodcut illustrations (4 folding) of human figures and human figures in motion, many diagrams of heads and other illustrations. Some spotting and mainly marginal browning, some dust-staining in places, few restorations, leaves E3-4 and M3-4 of first work supplied and somewhat smaller in size, leaves A3-4 and K2 trimmed in upper and lower margins (w/o loss). The second work is lacking leaves d3-4, e6 and f6 (both form the second part of a folding leaf and here supplied in facsimile) and the last blank. Recent vellum (stained, new endpapers) with Dürers monogram in manuscript to spine. ---- Adams D-1044 and D-1049; Fairfax Murray German Books 152 and 153; Bohatta 20 & 21 . - Two works in one volume in first Latin edition. "De Symmetria" comprises books I/II, "De varietate" books III/IV of the "Vier Bücher der menschlichen Proportion", the woodcuts are derived from the German edition of 1528. "These two works should, of course accompany one another, but they are often found apart and separately bound" (Murray). Unlike his Italian contemporary, Leonardo da Vinci, who published nothing, Dürer lived and worked in the world of printing and engraving. Dürer's treatise on human proportion was the earliest of the three theoretical works written in his later years. Dürer began formulating mathematical rules for the proportions of the human form soon after his first trip to Venice in 1494-5. For his mathematical formulations he drew upon the works of antiquity as well as the Italian rediscoveries; as for his other theoretical works, his goal was to establish a scientific basis for aesthetics and to provide practical guidelines for draftsmanship. "The book is the synthesis of Dürer's solutions to his self-imposed formal problems; in it he sets forth his formal aesthetic... Dürer's aesthetic rules are based firmly in the laws of optics--indeed, he even designed special mechanical instruments to aid in the measurement of human form. He used the height of the human body as the basic unit of measurement..." (DSB). Book IV is of the greatest interest as it presents for the first time many "new, difficult, and intricate considerations of descriptive spatial geometry... Dürer's chief accomplishment as outlined in the Four Books is that in rendering figures...he first solved the problem of establishing a canon, then considered the transformation of forms within that canon... In so doing he considered the spatial relations of form and the motions of form within space" (DSB)..

        The Historie of Great Britaine under the Conquests of the Romans, Saxons, Danes and Normans. Their Originals, Manners, Habits, Warres, Coines, and Seales: with the Successions, Lives, Acts, and Issues of the English Monarchs from Julius Caesar, unto the Raigne of King James, of famous Memorie

      Popes-head Pallace, at the signe of the White Horse: George Humble, 1632 A good copy of the 3rd edition, 'revised, enlarged, and newly corrected, with sundry descents of the Saxons Kings, Their Marriages and Armes.' In full leather binding which has been rebacked fairly recently retaining the original boards and adding a new spine and endpapers. The spine has a black gilt tooled title label, raised bands outlined in gilt and blind tooling. The boards appear contemporary, and, although rubbed and scuffed have elaborate blind tooling and the remains of a gilt border. Lacking the frontispiece portrait but otherwise complete. This work continued Speed's 'Theatre of Great Britaine' - and the contents listing refers to the first 4 books which were part of the Theatre, although this work (books 5 - 10) is complete in itself. With numerous woodcut illustrations and tables and head and tailpiece decorations. There is some light staining - mainly affecting the lower margins at the front of the book, and the bottom outer corner towards the end of the book. There is a small repaired tear on p 845 which has left a tiny hole, and an internal tear to one of the contents pages. There is occasional marking and browning but overall this copy is in good to very good condition with good paper quality.

        COMEDIES, HISTORIES, AND TRAGEDIES. Published according to the true Originall Copies. The second Impression

      London: Printed by Tho. Cotes, for Robert Allot, and are to be sold at his shop at the signe of the Blacke Beare in Pauls Church-yard, 1632. Second Folio edition of what is generally considered to be the most important work of literature in the English language. Engraved portrait by Martin Droeshout on title page, woodcut ornaments and initials. Folio (335x220 mm), very fine full crimson morocco by Lloyd, the covers beautifully decorated with three gilt fillet lines at the border surrounded by a key rolled border gilt, and with central gilt heraldic device, the spine in compartments fully tooled and elaborately and very handsomely decorated in gilt with superb tooling at the borders of the compartments and with central gilt devices exquisitely decorated in gilt, separated by raised bands gilt stopped and tooled, two compartments lettered in gilt. The turnovers and edges are fully gilt with fillet lines at the edges and elaborate gilt rolled decorative borders at the turnovers. Edges of the leaves with wide borders and virtually untrimmed, gilt An especially handsome, large and very attractive copy in a wonderful state of preservation. Fresh, clean and crisp throughout. The "To the Reader" leaf and title-page are expertly accomplished antique facsimiles on old paper and the final Cymbeline leaf as these, all done many years ago in completely unobtrusive and very skilled workmanship. A RARE AND ESPECIALLY BEAUTIFUL COPY OF THE SECOND FOLIO. And a most desirable copy. A Shakespeare folio is one of the most significant books for a collector of literature, and the Second Folio is the earliest copy still generally available to him or her, as most of the First Folios, of course, reside in institutional hands. The second folio is also significant for Milton collectors as it includes, on the Effigies leaf, his first published poem, entitled "An Epitaph on the admirable Dramaticke Poet, W. Shakespeare." The original folio printing of Shakespeare's works in all likelihood owes its existence to two of the Bard's principle actors, Henry Condell and John Heminges. Prior to the first folio there had been only a few "curious and rather shabby" collections of Shakespearian and non-Shakespearian works published under the bard's name. After Shakespeare's death Condell and Heminges dedicated themselves to producing a folio volume of all of his plays that would be accurate and authoritative "..only to keep the memory of so worthy a friend and fellow alive as was our Shakespeare." Their dedication, combined with help from others, eventually led to the publication of the First Folio in 1623. Without the hard work of these friends there is no knowing how many of the plays might have been lost in the years that followed. These two actor's work not only preserved the memory of their great friend but is perhaps the single most important publishing endeavor of English literature. How much the modern English-speaking world owes to these two men will never be calculable. The Second Folio contains JOHN MILTON S FIRST APPEARANCE IN PRINT: an epitaph on Shakespeare in 16 verses, incipit: What neede my Shakespeare for his honour'd bones; it appears on the same page A5r as "Upon the Effigies" in eight verses, incipit: Spectator, this Lifes Shaddow is; To see. The inner form containing these two poems is recorded in several states (in the Bruce copy: "Comicke" in line 3, "Laugh" in line 4, "passions" with ligatured double-s in line 6 of the "Effigies" poem); the outer form contains the title (A2r), whose setting varies according to the publisher in the imprint. Like its predecessor, from which the edition was set page-for-page, the Second Folio has now become extremely elusive in the open market. Copies as beautiful as this are highly desirable.

        Christian Policie: or, The Christian Common-Wealth

      London: printed by Thomas Harper, for Richard Collins, and are to be sold at his shop,, 1632. Published for the good of kings, and princes, and such as are in authoritie under them, and trusted with state affaires: as also for all true hearted subjects. Written in Spanish, and translated into English. Quarto (212 × 168 mm). Contemporary limp vellum, yapp edges, tawed skin ties (all but one broken), both covers with gilt initials "Sr T B" as supralibros. Complete with first and last blank leaves; in this issue, the title is a cancel. A little dampstaining to final quire and rear cover, else a very good, fresh copy with ample margins. First edition in English; rare. The translation is actually by the Hispanophile James Mabbe, though Edward Blount, as was his habit, signs the dedication as if he were its translator. (A variant issue of the same year has Blount's name instead of Richard Collins's in the imprint: the two booksellers were close neighbours in St Paul's Churchyard.) Edward Blount [Blunt] (bap. 1562, d. in or before 1632) is best known to posterity as the chief publisher of the first Shakespeare folio (with commendatory verses by his friends Mabbe and Leonard Digges). In other respects too, he was the most important English publisher of the early seventeenth century. He was a remarkably secular bookseller – he rarely published sermons, for example, popular and profitable though they were – and his list shows a decidedly international bent, with European histories and European travel books; dictionaries of Italian, Spanish, and Latin; and works translated out of French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Greek, Latin, and neo-Latin. He also developed relationships with English ambassadors abroad, like Sir Dudley Carleton, ambassador to Venice and The Hague, and involved himself in the Italian art trade, as well as dealing in currencies, cloth, seeds, and foodstuffs. He was a regular correspondent of William Trumbull, English agent in Brussels, and a close friend of his fellow stationer John Bill, Sir Thomas Bodley's agent in acquiring books printed abroad. A relatively late entry in the genre, Juan de Santa María's manual of advice to princes, República y policía christiana (first published in Madrid, 1615), was of particular interest in England at this time, as Charles I had set about reforming court manners on the Spanish model. Though no relation to the publisher, the supralibros is likely that of Sir Thomas Pope Blount (1556–1639) of Tittenhanger, Hertfordshire, whose well-travelled son, Sir Henry, was the author of A Voyage into the Levant (1636). Sir Henry was a supporter of Charles I; he attended the king at York and took part in the battle of Edgehill, supposedly being entrusted after it with the care of the young princes, the future James II and Charles II.

        Life of Tymon of Athens" [with] The Tragedie of Julius Cæsar

      [London]: [by Thomas Cotes for Robert Allot], [1632]. From the famed Second Folio of Shakespeare. Folio, quarter brown calf and marbled boards, gilt lettered and ruled on the spine. 107-150. A large and handsome copy, the binding in excellent order, the textblock quite nice and with only occasional and typical light spotting or aging. RARE EXAMPLE FROM THE SECOND FOLIO OF SHAKESPEARE. Two plays of Shakespeare’s great series of Roman plays, of which JULIUS CAESAR is without question the most famous. Complete and extracted from the Second Folio edition of his COMEDIES, HISTORIES, AND TRAGEDIES, a cornerstone--and some would say foundation--of English literature. While the complete Second Folio is one of the book collector's great prizes, a status well reflected in its price these days, this is an opportunity to acquire two of the most famous plays from the volume bound separately. Both of these works, along with the other Classical dramas, are believed to have been derived from Sir Thomas North’s great translation of Plutarch. Shakespeare’s version of JULIUS CAESAR is of such high regard that for many modern people, when they think Caesar, they are actually thinking Shakespeare.

        IOANNIS LEONIS AFRICANI AFRICAE. DESCRIPTO IX LIBR ABSOLUTA

      Lugd. Batav.: Elzevir [Elsevier,] 1632. . First thus. . Overall a very good copy, with some darkening to the spine and scratching to the vellum. Spine bears the notation W 371 and inside the front cover is a stamp with Willems 371. Both the content of this book and the 17th c publication by this important house, provide a tangible link to centuries of history. . The 1st Elzevir edition, in Latin translation, of a work originally issued in Italian in 1550. The author, a Moslem who was born in Granada but taken back to North Africa by his family in his early childhood, travelled extensively in Africa. Captured into slavery as a young man, his intelligence and education were recognized by his captors, and he was sent to Rome, where he was freed and converted to Christianity under the patronage of the Medici Pope, Leo X. This book, written in the early 16th Century, is considered to be the first work by a native African on the history and geography of Africa. He describes the trade routes, the peoples, towns and cities, and includes an account of the city of Timbuktu in which he describes the inhabitants as amazingly rich and ruled by a King who possessed a gold ingot which weighed over five hundred kilograms. Although the coast of Africa was known to Europeans to some extent, this was the first account of the interior of Africa, and it inspired Western explorers for hundreds of years. Blockson (101 #1) commented on this book as follows: "Any edition of Africanus works is rare and is the cornerstone of any collection of African history." The Elzevir family were among the great printers of Renaissance Europe, and significant in the establishment of Leiden in the Netherlands as one of the centers of learning and publishing in the 16th and 17th centuries. This book, which includes both volumes bound in one, numbered consecutively and in the original full-vellum binding with yapped edges, is in the very small format for which Elzevir was noted.

        Les Voyages de la Nouvelle France occidentale, dicte Canada

      Paris: chez Claude Collet, 1632. Quarto. (8 1/2 x 6 1/8 inches). Large folding engraved map on two sheets joined, 6 copper engraved illustrations (2 full-page), 2 woodcut illustrations. (Minor worming in the margins, the map matted and accompanying the text). Contemporary speckled calf, spine with raised bands in six compartments, lettered in gilt in the second compartment, the others with a repeat overall decoration in gilt. A fine copy of the most important edition of Champlain, complete with its legendary map. Among the rarest and most significant cartographically illustrated works of travel and exploration to North America. Champlain's work stands alone as a full, accurate, detailed account of New France in the first three decades of the seventeenth century. He was the first to systematically explore a large part of the coastline of New England reaching as far south as just below Cape Cod, and probably sighting Martha's Vineyard; he can also be said to have initiated the exploration of the Great Lakes. In short, his work offers an historical and ethnological source without compare. This excellence extends to the illustrations: the six engravings which appear in this edition, identical to those which illustrated the 1619 Champlain, are some of the most accurate illustrations of Indians to appear before the nineteenth century. According to Church, "Of all the editions of Champlain, this is the only complete one." The first part contains abridged accounts of the first six voyages of Champlain, through 1613 (those covered in the volume published that year) and a full account of the seventh voyage of 1615-17, with a brief note on the eighth. The second part contains a full account of the ninth voyage and a history of Canada for the period 1620-31 - this material appears here for the first time. The treatise on navigation makes its first appearance here, as well. Champlain's Voyages is, of course, justly celebrated for its large and legendary map, found here but almost always lacking. The present very fine example is Burden's first state of the landmark map, aptly described as the "last and greatest [map] produced by Champlain ... the prototype of later European maps for nearly a century" (Cumming, The Discovery of North America). Described by Heidenreich as "a mothermap," it "records virtually the full extent of ... [Champlain's] magnificent contribution to the geographic knowledge of northeastern North America" (Heidenreich/Dahl p.4). Burden writes that the map "could be labelled the first to depict the existence of the entire Great Lakes network ... The map covers the same territory as [the map]... of c.1616, but contains far greater detail, extending south as far as the Virginia colonies. The New Netherlands provides one of the areas of most interest in using nomenclature that is of unknown origin. The Hudson River is here called the Riviere des trettes, and Long Island Isle de l'Ascension. Above these is a reference to an unidentified tribe, 'Habitation de sauuages maniganaticouoit'. The church depicted is clearly an indication of the Dutch presence in the region and must be construed as the first delineation of present day New York City on a printed map" (Burden, The Mapping of North America p.295). Champlain's contribution to the exploration, description and mapping of North America is unique: he is the only individual who not only explored vast areas personally, but who also published maps and descriptions of what he had seen: "posterity is fortunate that in Champlain, experience was combined with scientific skill; otherwise the information he gathered would have been lost" (Heidenreich).

        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.

Samtida ngt nött och lätt solkigt pergamentbd med guldlinjer på rygg och pärmar samt spår av handskriven ryggtitel och numrering. Helt guldsnitt. Med Thure Bielkes namnteckning på titelbladet och förgyllda pärmexlibris på båda pärmarna, på den främre nästan bortnött. Spår av oläsbara stplr på främre pärmens insida.. Willems Les Elzevier 371. Översatt av J. Florius. Johannes Leo Africanus (ca 1494-1554), som var det kristna namnet på al-Hasan ibn Muhammad al-Wazzan al-Fasi, föddes i Granada men växte upp och studerade i Fez. Som sultanens i Fez diplomat gjorde han vidsträckta resor innan han tillfångatogs av kristna korsarer och fördes till Rom. Han frigavs på påven Leo X:s initiativ och lät omvända sig. Hans nordafrikanska geografi ska ha slutförts omkring 1526 men trycktes första gången 1550 under titeln "Della descrittione dell'Africa et delle cose notabili che iui sono". Arbetet, som delvis bygger på författarens egna resor i området, blev mycket populärt och utkom i många upplagor och översattes till flera språk. Thure Bielke (1606-48) var överste vid Nylands och Tavastehus läns regemente till häst, riksråd och slutligen häradshövding över Wehmo härad i Finland. Han hade under 1628-29 besökt Venedig och andra italienska städer och köpt ett stort antal italienska böcker. Han fortsatte att på sitt gods Salsta bygga upp ett stort bibliotek som utökades av sonen Nils Bielke. Fyra band ur Thure Bielkes bibliotek ingick enligt Carlander i Eichhorns bibliotek, två av dessa med samma typ av pärmexlibris som på föreliggande band

        IOANNIS LEONIS AFRICANI AFRICAE. DESCRIPTO IX LIBR ABSOLUTA

      Lugd. Batav.: Elzevir [Elsevier,] 1632. . First thus. . Overall a very good copy, with some darkening to the spine and scratching to the vellum. Spine bears the notation W 371 and inside the front cover is a stamp with Willems 371. Both the content of this book and the 17th c publication by this important house, provide a tangible link to centuries of history. . The 1st Elzevir edition, in Latin translation, of a work originally issued in Italian in 1550. The author, a Moslem who was born in Granada but taken back to North Africa by his family in his early childhood, travelled extensively in Africa. Captured into slavery as a young man, his intelligence and education were recognized by his captors, and he was sent to Rome, where he was freed and converted to Christianity under the patronage of the Medici Pope, Leo X. This book, written in the early 16th Century, is considered to be the first work by a native African on the history and geography of Africa. He describes the trade routes, the peoples, towns and cities, and includes an account of the city of Timbuktu in which he describes the inhabitants as amazingly rich and ruled by a King who possessed a gold ingot which weighed over five hundred kilograms. Although the coast of Africa was known to Europeans to some extent, this was the first account of the interior of Africa, and it inspired Western explorers for hundreds of years. Blockson (101 #1) commented on this book as follows: "Any edition of Africanus works is rare and is the cornerstone of any collection of African history." The Elzevir family were among the great printers of Renaissance Europe, and significant in the establishment of Leiden in the Netherlands as one of the centers of learning and publishing in the 16th and 17th centuries. This book, which includes both volumes bound in one, numbered consecutively and in the original full-vellum binding with yapped edges, is in the very small format for which Elzevir was noted.

        Manipulus Stratagematum.

      Johannes Janssonius, Amsterdam 1632. 12mo. Kobberstukket titelblad. (24)+451+(26) sider. Senere marmoreret papirbind uden rygtitel.. Bibl. Dan. II,331. Med lang trykt tilegnelse til hertug Ulrik, Christian IV's yngste kongelige søn. Tidlig militærhistorie med dansk forfatter. "..en grundlærd mærkværdighed (...) med genfortællinger af episoder fra oldtidens og middelalderens krige, hver med en krigslist eller anden bemærkelsesværdig indsats fra hærførerens side" (Gunner Lind, i Fund og Forskning 1995, p. 19). ** Elias Pedersen Winstrup (eller Vinstrup) (c. 1610-33) var yngste søn af Sjællands biskop Peder Jensen Winstrup og eneste bror til Peder Pedersen Winstrup (1605-79), der blev den sidste danske og første svenske biskop over Lund Stift. Elias studerede først i Sorø, men dimitteredes i 1627 fra Herlufsholm. Hans videre studier førte ham til udlandet. Han studerede i Wittenberg i 1630 og blev i december 1631 immatrikuleret ved universitetet i Leiden. Efter udgivelsen af sin første og eneste bog drog han syg hjem til København, hvor han døde i maj det følgende år. Danske militærhistorikere er sjældent rundet af bispegårde, men det er vel i unge Elias Winstrups familiebaggrund, man finder forklaringen på, at en så ambitiøs udgivelse var mulig. En mulig forbindelse til hertug Ulrik indgår også her. Christian IV's yngste - sympatiske og højt begavede - søn med dronning Anna Cathrine opholdt sig i Leiden i 1630 på vej gennem sin korte europæiske karriere som henholdsvis officer og åndsperson, der beklageligvis endte for en attentatmands kugle i 1633. Som et sært sammentræf gælder det for både Elias Winstrup og prins Ulrik, at man på sigt langt hellere havde set og mærket meget mere til dem end til deres respektive ældre brødre

        Dialogo...sopra I due Massimi Sistemi del Mondo Tolemaico, e Copernicano

      Finely engraved frontis. by Stephano della Bella showing Aristotle, Ptolemy, & Copernicus and several woodcut diagrams & illus. in the text. 5 p.l. (including frontis.), 458, [32] pp. 4to, attractive modern brown morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, spine lettered in gilt, t.e.g. Florence: G.B. Landini, 1632. First edition and an excellent, fresh, and large copy; the famous frontispiece is a rich impression with generous margins. Our copy is much less browned than is usual with this book. "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, wilfulness, 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 & the Mind of Man 128. From the library of Jacob Bronowski (1908-74), the mathematician, biologist, historian of science, poet, and inventor. ❧ Cinti 89. Dibner, Heralds of Science, 8. Horblit 18c.

        ESSAYES OR, MORALL, POLITIKE, AND MILITARIE DISCOURSES OF LORD MICHAEL

      1632. MONTAIGNE, Michel de. John Florio, trans. 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. The Third Edition. Whereunto is now newly added an Index of the principall matters and personages mentioned in this Book. London: Printed for M. Flesher, for Rich : Royston, in Ivie-lane next the exchequer office, 1632. Third edition of the first English-language translation by John Florio (the first edition being 1603). Folio (in 6s). 29 cm. [14],631,[13] pp. There are some errors in pagination, including the last page, which is numbered 131. Engraved architectural title-page by Martin Droeshout, which faces the explanation leaf "To the Beholder of This Title," has been trimmed close to the plate, inlaid in a leaf, and bound in. Separate title-pages for the second and third books, dated 1631. Clean text but for Q4&5, which have shallow soiling at bottom edges. In addition, Q5 and three other leaves have small chips in margins which do not affect text. Contemporary blind-ruled calf boards were skillfully rebacked, with the original elaborately gilt-tooled backstrip laid-down, but the upper joint is now cracked and the lower joint is starting. Nonetheless, the binding is sound and not unattractive. Armorial bookplate of Hugh Cecil Lowther, fifth Earl of Lonsdale, on front pastedown. Montaigne's Essayes is one of the great books of world literature and a seminal work in the development of modern thought. His essays were the epitome of sixteenth century skeptical philosophy and gave direction to European philosophy in the next century, from Descartes to Newton. Florio's translation was familiar to all the leading literary figures of the seventeenth century, such as Jonson, Burton, and Browne, not to mention Sir Francis Bacon, who developed the English version of Montaigne's new essay format.
