FIRENS, Pietro
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. Rare: OCLC locates only one copy in America (Harvard) and six in Europe. Thieme-Becker XII, 7. Diels/Leesberg (New Hollstein), 1436-1461.

Sir Thomas Overbury
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

JONSTON, John
Apud Guilielmum Blaeu, Amsterdam, 1632. FIRST EDITION. 12mo [xii] 501 [iii]. Roman and Italic letter, woodcut initials and tail-pieces, t.p. with printer’s device of an orrery. Light age browning, otherwise a good clean copy with C17 annotations, in contemporary English calf, covers triple-ruled in blind, spine remounted, a.e.r. FIRST EDITION of Jonston’s most popular work on "admiranda" or wonders of nature organised into ten categories (heaven, earth, and topics relating to meteors, ‘fossils’ or minerals, plants, birds, quadrupeds, insects and ‘bloodless’ animals, fish, and humans). The work draws heavily from classical sources such as Aristotle, Pliny, and Seneca, but also from the more recent work of Aldrovandi, and in the section on plants includes descriptions of the flora and fauna of the New World, as well as tobacco. Each section is headed by a useful index to its contents, and the work concludes with a poem in praise of Jonston by the Bohemian poet Venceslaus Clemens. John Jonston (1603 - 1675) emigrated from Poland to Scotland in 1622 and studied natural history at St. Andrew’s for four years. He received the degree of Doctor of Physic from both Leyden and Cambridge. Despite the compact size of Thaumaturgia, his earliest work, its wide range of material prefigures his later, large-scale works on Fish, Insects, Birds, and Trees, made possible by his extensive travel through Europe and access to its libraries, as well as firsthand observation. Venceslaus Clemens (1589 - 1640?), Protestant and prolific Neo-Latin poet, was forced to leave his native Bohemia after the … [Click Below for Full Description]

CAVALIERI, Bonaventura
Bologna: Nicolai Tebaldini, 1632. Rare first edition of the first work on logarithms printed in Italy and this great mathematician's first published work. Professor of Mathematics at Bologna, the Milanese Cavalieri introduced and popularized logarithms throughout his country within a generation of Napier's invention of these “valuable auxiliaries to numerical calculation.” The Directorium covers the construction, uses, and applications of logarithms, “together with noteworthy developments in trigonometry and applications to astronomy” (E. Carruccio in DSB III.152). It also contains the author's discovery of the expression for the area of a spherical triangle in terms of spherical excess.The Directorium incorporates two extensive appendices of “excellent logarithmic-trigonometric tables,” derived from those of Napier and Henry Briggs. The tables include logs of sines, versines (sinus versus) tangents and cotangents (but no cosines). Cavalieri included logarithms of trigonometric functions for the benefit of astronomers. A second edition was issued posthumously in 1653.Cavalieri (1598-1647) was one of the major mathematicians of his period. After studying with Benedetto Castelli, he became a self-declared disciple of Galileo to whom he wrote at least 112 recorded letters. In a letter that helped secure for Cavalieri the chair of mathematics at Bologna, Galileo wrote glowingly of him: “few, if any, since Archimedes, have delved as far and as deep into the science of geometry.”OCLC lists NYPL, CalTech, Berkeley, Burndy, U.

Folding plate. 16mo: a - f^8 A - 2Q^8. 2Q8 a blank. 4-1/2" x 2-1/4" 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 d … [Click Below for Full Description]

Of the English edition of 1629, Cockle says "This work, though in advance of anything so far written on the subject in English, does not attain to the standard of Thibourel and Appier. Yet it is with foreign treatises it must be weighed, for Malthus received his training in pyrotechnics abroad.It was Malthus who about the year 1634 introduced the mortar into the French service." - Klaus Jordan: 2328 (ed. 1629) - Chris Philip: M 040.3 - Cockle Nos 118 a. 939.

His De Topographia Constantinopoleos et de illius antiquitatibus libri IV, was translated into English in 1729 by John Ball, as The Antiquities of Constantinople; most of his books were published posthumously and edited by his nephew, Antoine Gilles, who edited the present volume. 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 "fer … [Click Below for Full Description]

Owners entry on title-page: "Missionis Warendorpiensis S(ocie)tatis Jesu 1729". " . Blosius published a broad variety of works focusing on practical spiritual advice for the common believer, outlining central Christological themes, offering guidance on prayer and self-perfection, presenting basic doctrines of theologia mystica and providing the reader with anthologies of texts from older Christian authors. Althoug BLosius' oeuvre is characterized by a relatively high degree of ecclecticism and its originality lags behind such authors as Meister Eckhart, John of the Cross or Teresa of Avila, it provided to be a valuable reservoir of spirituality for the 'vommon monk' and the 'common believer': in the two and a half centuries following Blosius' death his works were printed in different editions throughout Europe almost annually." (Peter Sajda, Ludovicus Blosius: a frightful satire on Christendom, no pagination) See for discussion on the draughtsmanship 'P.P.Rubens als boekillustrator. Tentoonstellingscatalogus 1977', p.57-58. Rubens received 20 Guilders for the design of this title-page from Moretus.

Juan de Santa María, fray.
Pr. by Thomas Harper for Richard Collins, 1632. Uncommon first edition of this English translation of Fray Juan de Santa María's Tratado de República y policía christiana, published in 1615. A Christian perspective on the powers and responsibilities of monarchs, the work was inspired by the Franciscan author's opposition to the government of the Duke of Lerma. The English rendition was often assigned to Edward Blount (who signed the dedication), but is now generally considered the work of => scholar and poet James Mabbe, known for his translations of Cervantes and other works of Spanish literature and theology. The title-page here is a cancel, changing the publisher from Edward Blount to Richard Collins. The work was additionally issued in the same year with yet another title-page, under the title, Policy Unveiled: Wherein may be Learned the Order of True Policie in Kingdomes and Commonwealths, the Matters of Justice, and Government. . . . Uncommon: ESTC, OCLC, and NUC Pre-1956 find only 9 U.S. holdings.

Piatti, Girolamo] 1545-1591
J. Cousturier, Rouen 1632 - An example of Catholic writings suppressed by the English government in the 16-17 centuries. Their printing was prohibited so most were produced in France or Belgium. Many of the nearly a thousand works briefly recorded in Allison & Rogers "Catalogue of Catholic books in English printed abroad or secretly in England, 1558-1640" lack title pages or are otherwise defective. Without collations it is impossible to know whether a title is on a single preliminary leaf or part of a gathering. The two issues of this Piatti in A&R (its 653 and 654, STC 20001 and 20001.5) have the title as a single leaf, the first without, the second with imprint, but both have the tell-tale Jesuit connection and "Permissu superiorum", reason sufficient to explain its abscence from this copy, its deft removal from hostile viewing. Original limp vellum, lacking ties, spine with a later inked inscription of the title. At top of the first page is a brief inked notation, the only evidence of provenance. Well-printed, on good paper, clean. (More, Henry 1586-1661. Recusant literature. Monastic and religious life.) Size: 23.2cm. [8]613[4,blank]p.

Shakespeare William
[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.

Shakespeare William
[London]: [by Thomas Cotes for Robert Allot], [1632]. From the famed Second Folio of Shakespeare. Folio, quarter brown calf and marbled boards, gilt lettered on the spine. 1-38. A handsome copy, the binding in excellent order, the text with occasional spotting or light typical staining, the “Tempest” leaves trimmed a bit more then those of the “Two Gentlemen” and from another copy. TWO OF SHAKESPEARE’S ENGAGING COMEDIES, INCLUDING “THE TEMPEST”, 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 plays from the volume bound separately. THE TEMPEST is one of Shakespeare’s most famous romantic dramas. Its magical themes have inspired numerous later works of art such as; Milton’s COMUS, an unfinished opera by Mozart, Shelley’s ‘Ariel to Miranda’, music by Tchaikovski and Berlioz, Auden’s THE SEA AND THE MIRROR and even the groundbreaking science fiction motion picture ‘Forbidden Planet’ in 1954. Its influence is far reaching and with good reason. Though many incidences and classical works are considered as somewhat inspirational for it, no source for the story has ever been know, it is one of Shakespeare’s most original works.
