JUAN DE SANTA MARÍA, fray.
London: printed by Thomas Harper, for Richard Collins, and are to be sold at his shop, 1632. London: printed by Thomas Harper, for Richard Collins, and are to be sold at his shop,, 1632. Quarto (212 x 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 17th 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, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ioannis Leonis [Leo Africanus]
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."

CHAMPLAIN, Samuel de (1567-1635)
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 ful … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

London: Pr. by John Dawson [and Thomas Cotes] for George Humble, 1632. Folio (33.5 cm, 13.25"). [10] ff., 1042 pp.; 1043–1086 ff., 1087–1237, [85 (index)] pp. (lacking frontis.); illus. Third edition of this archetypal early English history, a variant of the 1631 edition. Printed with all the archaic and "curious" spellings one could hope for in such a work (e.g., "Britaine" and "ye" on the title-page), each page bears both roman and italic types; the text contains a number of intricate initials, headpieces, and tailpieces, and is adorned with detailed woodcuts of kings, their coats of arms, and the seals and coinage of their reigns. The illustrations are as notable as the typography for quaint charm.    Speed (1552–1629), a cartographer and historian, published the Historie as a continuation of his Theatre of Great Britaine, both works being listed in the table of contents of this work, which explains the volume's peculiar pagination and arrangement.    => An epitome of the "antiquarian" both in form and content, this is a marvelous compendium of royal history and lore.         ESTC S997; STC (rev. ed.) 23049; Graesse 462–63; Lowndes 2471–72.

WINSTRUP, ELIAS PEDERSEN.
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 gæl … [Click Below for Full Description]

GALILEI, Galileo
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. Dibne … [Click Below for Full Description]

[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 died of an … [Click Below for Full Description]
