Montaigne, Michel de
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, a … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 D … [Click Below for Full Description]

AFRICANI, Ioannis Leonis (Leo Africanus).
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.".

MATTHIEU, PIERRE.:
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 th … [Click Below for Full Description]

GALILEI, Galileo
Florence, 1632 The engraved frontispiece facing the title by Stefano della Bella depicting Aristotle, Ptolemy and Copernicus in discussion surmounted by the Medici arms appears to be a facsimile on contemporary paper; woodcut printer?'s device on title, woodcut initials, headpieces and diagrams. Contemporary vellum, Galileo and Systema Cosmica written in ink on spine; minor browning and spotting as usual. First edition of Galileo?'s statement and defence of the Copernican system of heliocentrism, which directly led to his trial for heresy in Rome in 1633. 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.

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 know … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vincenzo Alsario della Croce
ROMAE: EX TYPOGRAPHIA GUILELMI FACCIOTTI, 1632. In 8. Dim. 22x16 cm. Pp. (8)+317+(3). Rara opera del 1632 sul Monte Vesuvio del medico Genovese Vincenzo Alsario della Croce (n. 1570). Eminente professore di medicina a Roma per più di venti anni, fu uno dei primi a scrivere sull'epilessia. Medico dei papi Gregorio XV e Urbano VIII, Alsario venne allontanato da Roma perchè "bisbetico, litigioso, millantatore soverchio e poco prudente" (Gerini 1829, p. 287). L'opera, scritta in occasione della disastrosa eruzione del Vesuvio avvenuta il 12 Dicembre 1631 è uno studio medico fisico sulle eruzioni del Vesuvio e dell'Etna e le malattie ad esso corrrelate. Alsario descrive accuratamente le eruzioni e ciò che comportano, i terremoti e le alluvioni ad esse legate spesso citando scrittori di letteratura classica e mettendole a confronto con quelle del Sinai e dell' Hecla in Islanda. Interessante la parte dedicata alle malattie scatenate a Torre Annunziata. Alla fine del volume lista delle eruzioni del Vesuvio e relativa bibliografia. Nel testo descrizione dell'eruzioni dell'Etna nel 1537 L'opera è collazionata e risultata completa. In buone condizioni. Insieme al volume un foglio manoscritto.
