        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. Size: 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Famous History of the Life of King Henry the Eight

      [London]: [by Thomas Cotes for Robert Allot], [1632]. From the famed Second Folio of Shakespeare. Folio, handsomely bound in period style full calf paneled in blind and with gilt lettering on the upper board and spine, the spine also with gilt ruled raised bands. 205-232 pp. A very handsome and fine copy, the text with only the very lightest of mellowing from age, the binding proper and pristine. Shakespeare's famous play of pride, divorce, execution and the transformation or religious life in England. 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 one of the most famous plays from the volume bound separately. One of the most contemporary of Shakespeare's Histories it deals with the fall and execution of the Duke of Buckingham; the question of the Royal divorce; the pride and fall of Wolsey; the coronation of Anne Boleyn; the triumph of Cranmer over hi s enemies and the Christening of Princess Elizabeth. Its performance in June of 1613 resulted in the burning down of the Globe Theatre.

[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.

        Brabantia Mariana tripartita.

      Jan Cnobbaert, Antverpiae 1632 - In-4 (20,5 x16 cm) de (24)-962 pp. (78) pp. d'index, veau fauve, dos orné à quatre nerfs, armes frappées recouvrant les plats, filet doré d'encadrement, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque). Édition originale sortie des presses anversoires de Jan Cnobbaert. Vierge à l'enfant gravée sur le titre encadrée de l'inscription manuscrite à l'encre du temps Salve advocata Maria dulcis Maria sis nobis propitia. Description et recensement en trois livres des sanctuaires miraculeux dédiés à la Vierge dans le Brabant - qui comprenait alors la province d'Anvers - dénommé le "Jardin de Marie", par le chanoine norbertin de Tongerloo Augustin Wichmans qui montre avec ce travail une Vierge de victoire bienveillante à l'égard du peuple brabançon. Le livre II comprend 67 chapitres qui détaillent pour chaque sanctuaire l'histoire de chaque image ainsi que les miracles qu'elle a suscités. Le livre III énumère les monastères dédiés à la Vierge. « Les Pays-Bas méridionaux n'ont connu, tout au long du XVIIe siècle, que guerres et affrontements. En lutte contre les Provinces-Unies calvinistes, dévastés par les puissances européennes qui ont fait du pays leur champ de bataille, ils espèrent sans cesse une trêve définitive qui tarde à se concrétiser. Dans ce contexte politique troublé où les nombreux traités de paix ne conduisent qu'à de nouveaux conflits, les habitants recherchent une protection efficace pour leur patrie. Cette protection, certains veulent la trouver dans la figure de la Vierge Marie. C'est ainsi que quelques livrets de pèlerinage marial, véritables outils de propagande au service des autorités tant spirituelles que temporelles, réclament la paix en s'attachant à donner à la Mère de Dieu une dimension symbolique nouvelle. A côté de la traditionnelle Vierge miraculeuse qui guérit les maux, grands et petits, des simples particuliers, apparaît alors une Vierge patriote soignant les blessures de la nation. Au XVIIe siècle, les statues mariales miraculeuses sont légion dans les Pays-Bas méridionaux. D'origine médiévale ou d'invention récente, elles attirent les foules dans les sanctuaires où elles sont vénérées. Cette immense popularité est attisée par les autorités catholiques dans le cadre de la Contre-Réforme. En réaction aux attaques protestantes, elles ont fait de la Vierge la figure de proue de leur entreprise de reconquête. Elles encouragent donc la dévotion à une Marie puissante et victorieuse, intensifient le réseau de lieux sacrés qui lui sont voués, favorisent les pèlerinages aux statues miraculeuses mais exercent en même temps un contrôle sévère pour éviter tout excès qui nuirait à l'Église. Les gouverneurs qui se succèdent à la tête des Pays-Bas paraissent préserver la piété mariale. » Bel exemplaire aux armes du gouverneur général des Pays-Bas autrichiens Charles-Alexandre de Lorraine (Lunéville 1712 - château de Tervuren 1780) grand maître de l'ordre Teutonique et chevalier de l'Ordre de la Toison d'or.

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. The third edition. Revised, enlarged, and newly corrected, with sundry descents of the Saxons Kings, their marriages and armes. Pp. [xxii](including blank preliminary)+1237[actually 1281, with pp. 1043-1086 numbered on rectos only]+[5](summary conclusion)+[80](table), frontispiece portrait, large printer's device on title page, numerous text illustrations, head & tailpiece decorations, and small decorative initials, the title and dedication pages and many of the decorations rubricated (usually in simple lines, occasionally more elaborately), several full page genealogical tables; f'cap. folio; early calf boards with decorative blind border within triple gilt rules, gilt edges and dentelles, corners lightly worn, sympathetically rebacked with modern calf spine lettered and decorated in gilt, the boards a trifle marked, including a thin ink stain to upper board near head of spine; all edges green; remains of ribbon marker; marbled endpapers; hinges neatly strengthened, bookseller's sticker at foot of upper pastedown, another earlier bookseller's sticker on verso of upper free endpaper, early inked signature on blank preliminary leaf, minor printing flaw p. 1068 (affecting a couple of letters of text), a few small marginal water stains, some of the illustrations faintly offset, occasional light foxing and soiling; printed by John Dawson for George Humble, London, 1632. STC 23049; Lowndes p. 2472. *John Speed (c. 1552-1629) is best known today as a cartographer. His atlas \i The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine contained the first individual county maps of England and Wales. In his own time, he was also highly regarded as an historian, and he was encouraged to begin his \i History of Great Britaine by William Camden and other fellow members of the Society of Antiquaries. This work, first published in 1611, is a companion to Speed's famous atlas, but is complete in itself. (In the first editions, the pagination was continuous through both volumes, which is why the present edition commences with 'the fifth book' and the table of contents includes the 'first four' books [ie., the atlas]). This edition is a variant of one published in 1631, and has the peculiar pagination noted by Lowndes. A neat early inked annotation at the foot of p. 1237 in this copy briefly updates the information to include the death of James I and the reign and death of Charles I. The frontispiece portrait of Speed, by Savery, appeared in the later editions of most of Speed's works. Other illustrations include portraits of kings, royal seals and coats of arms, coinage, etc. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Leiden: Elzevier, 1632 First edition. 24mo (11,2 x 5,5 cm). 428 pp. Contemporary overlapping full vellum. Spine with handwritten title. Gyllius's work on the topography of Constantinople provides a description of Constantinople. This description of Constantinople consists of four books. He describes initially the geographical location, the natural environment, the water supply and the climate of the region. He reviews the city's mythological and historical past, and subsequently, each one of the seven hills of the city. He then describes the monuments, temples, statues, Basilicas, walls, gates and towers &c. He comes back to the most ancient monuments on every hill and ends with the description of Galata and the Ottoman monuments. That is followed by a description of Constantinople at the time of the emperors Arcadius and Honorius around 400. At the end an index. Willems (367) quotes two editions of this work (Copinger 2037 & 2038); Brunet does not. Ours is the first of these two (Copinger 2037), with the Index Capitum printed between the Praefatio and the actual text; on p. 31, 1st line admonuisse i.s.o. admonuisset; on p. 33, line 5. With a fine engraved title page, depicting a bird's eye view of Constantinople and its harbour. The work contains 4 headpieces, 3 culs-de-lampe and 7 decorated woodcut initials. This edition not in Broman, nor in Traister, both only the second edition. Also not in Elsevier Heritage Collection. A very fine and remarkably fresh copy.

        Tabulae motuum coelestium perpetuae; ex omnium temporum observationibus constructae, temporumque omnium observationibus consentientes. Item novae et genuinae motuum coelestium theoricae & Astronomicarum observationum thesaurus.

      Middelberg: Zacharias Roman [Colophon: Leiden: Willem Christiaens van der Boxe], 1632. First edition, very rare, of Lansbergen's astronomical tables. Lansbergen was a staunch Copernican, and "complained with justification that the Church opposed the heliocentric hypothesis on theological grounds alone, without examining the evidence and the scientific arguments in its support" (Heninger, The Cosmographical Glass, p.  68). Lansbergen could not, however, accept Johannes Kepler's elliptical orbits, upon which Kepler had based his own Rudolphine Tables published five years earlier. Lansbergen attacked Kepler in his early works, and produced these rival tables which were founded on a more traditional epicyclic theory. Lansbergen's tables were simpler than Kepler's and were widely used by astronomers throughout the 1630s, but they eventually began to fall out of favour when they were found to be less accurate than Kepler's. They continued to find supporters, however, as late as the 1660s (they were reprinted by Roman in 1652). Early works by Lansbergen are rare; the last copies to appear in ABPC/RBH were in the Macclesfield and Honeyman sales, neither of which included the present work; in fact, ABPC/RBH list only a single copy of Lansbergen's tables in the last fifty years. Lansbergen's works are most accessible in the Opera Omnia (1663), which appears with some regularity on the market. The brilliant young English astronomer Jeremiah Horrocks (1618-1641) bought a copy of Lansbergen's Tabulae in 1635 (when he was 16). This proved to be a fateful purchase, for his reading of this work led to his famous observation of the transit of Venus across the Sun's face in 1639. Based on the Rudolphine Tables, Kepler had predicted that Venus would be visible on the Sun's face on 6 December 1631, but the transit was not observed as it began after sunset in Europe. "However, Lansbergen had also predicted a Venus transit for 1639 [ironically, Kepler, using his more accurate Rudolphine Tables, had predicted that Venus would pass below the Sun's disc on this date]. Although Horrocks placed more faith in Kepler, the possibility of a second transit piqued his curiosity. Horrocks took Lansbergen's tables and determined that indeed, Lansbergen was correct: A transit would occur at about 3 p.m. on 4 December 1639. Using the Rudolphine Tables, Horrocks was able to understand why Kepler predicted that the second transit would pass below the visible disk of the Sun. However, with Horrocks's revised and more accurate version of Kepler's table it was clear that Venus would transit the southern face of the Sun, though well below the position predicted by Lansberg" (Biographical Encyclopedia of Astronomers, under Horrocks). Horrocks's copy of Lansbergen's tables is now in Trinity College Library, Cambridge, having been presented to the College by Augustus de Morgan in the 19th century. Horrocks appended a full-page diagram of the Copernican system to the book, yet with the addition of an orbit for the Sun about the earth, thus giving a shadowy impression of the Tychonic alternative. His copy also contains a list in Horrocks's own hand itemizing the astronomical books he owned and had studied by 1635. It contains 31 titles, all of them in Latin, some translated from medieval Arabic writers, and virtually all, except Pliny, highly mathematical. No less than four of the titles are by Kepler (including, of course, the Rudolphine Tables). "Born of Protestant parents who left the Netherlands for religious reasons in 1566, young Philip Lansbergen (1561-1632) grew up in France and England, where he was educated in mathematics and theology. Upon his return to the Netherlands without a degree in 1579, he accepted employment as a minister in Antwerp, but when this city was conquered by the Spanish in 1585, Lansbergen went to Leiden to apply himself to theology. Shortly after he married Sara Lievaerts in 1586, Lansbergen moved to Goes to be a minister again. Here, alongside his religious acts, he developed his liberal views on astronomy, was engaged in politics, and practiced medicine. "In 1613, after a series of minor incidents, Lansbergen ran into serious problems. The death of one of his patients caused a protracted medical controversy, and his opposition to the appointment of a new mayor ended in his dismissal. Thereupon, he moved to Middelburg and, provided with an annuity of "the Staten van Zeeland," Lansbergen addressed himself mainly to astronomy, mathematics, and medicine until his death in 1632. His wife died in 1625; he left six sons and four daughters ...

Mornay, auch Philippe Duplessis-Mornay (1549-1623), war als Theologe und Staatsmann ein führender Hugenotte, dessen Einfluss auf Heinrich von Navarra, den späteren König Heinrich IV. von Frankreich, so stark war, dass er als \"Papst der Hugenotten\" bezeichnet wurde. Es gibt die Vermutung, Mornay verberge sich hinter dem Pseudonym \"Stephanus Junius Brutus\" und sei damit Schöpfer einer der wichtigsten Schriften der sogenannten Monarchomachen (\"Vindiciae contra tyrannos\", 1579). - Mornay nahm am Zweiten Hugenottenkrieg teil, arbeitete für den Admiral de Coligny und rettete sich nach der Bartholomäusnacht nur knapp ins Exil nach England. Im Jahre 1575 kehrte er als Verwalter der Finanzen in die Dienste Heinrichs III. nach Navarra zurück. Nachdem sein König als Heinrich IV. König von Frankreich geworden war, arbeitete Mornay auf die Verabschiedung des Ediktes von Nantes hin. Versand D: 2,00 EUR

        De Iure Jure Belli ac Pacis [Bound with] Tabulae Generales, Quibus...

      1632. An Edition of De Jure Belli ac Pacis Overlooked by Ter Meulen and Diermanse Bound with a Rare (and Unrecorded) Synoptic Table of that Book Grotius, Hugo [1583-1645]. De Iure Belli ac Pacis Libri Tres. In Quibus Jus Naturae & Gentium, Item Juris Publici Praecipua Explicantur. Editio Nova ab Auctore ipso Recognita & Correcta: De qua Vide Pagina Frequenti. Amsterdam: Apud Guilielmum Blaeu, 1632. [xx], 421, [25], [6], 26, [2] pp. Octavo (6-1/4" x 3-3/4). [Bound after] Tabulae Generales, Quibus Univera Facies Operis Hugonis Grotii de Jure Belli et Pacis, In Usum Discenium Delineata Est. Wittenberg: Typis Joh. Wilkii, Acad. Typogr., n.d. Two folding tables, 6" x 6" and 13" x 7,"text on rectos and versos. Contemporary vellum with lapped edges, early hand-lettered title to spine. Light soiling, corners and spine ends bumped, hinges cracked, vellum just beginning to crack though pastedowns, some edgewear to Tabulae, first table neatly torn in half along fold line, a few short tears along fold lines of other table. Moderate toning to text, somewhat heavier in places, some leaves have faint dampspotting. Early and later owner signatures to front free endpaper, interior otherwise clean. $2,500. * Grotius: later edition; Tabulae: only edition located. The Tabulae is a synopsis of De Jure Belli ac Pacis in the form of a diagram (with brief notes). It is apparently unrecorded, and we were not able to locate a copy on OCLC or KVK. It is bound to an equally curious edition of De Jure Belli ac Pacis that not listed in Ter Meulen and Diermanse's Bibliographie des Ecrits Imprimes de Hugo Grotius. It is similar to the edition described in Entry 569, but it includes an additional work, Mare Librerum. We located copies De Jure Belli identical to ours on OCLC.
