William Shakespeare
London: Thomas Cotes. Each of the 400-year old quotation leaves in the "Shakespeare 200" limited edition (including this example) are in overall good condition, and were professionally conserved in 2016 to the exacting standards of the "American Institute of Conservation". Each leaf in this edition is approximately 12.25 inches tall by 8.25 inches in width. The leaves throughout this edition may have minor spotting, foxing, or age toning, and close margins that may rarely touch or slightly cross a rule line. Each leaf in the edition is also beautifully (and removably) housed in a custom-designed and archival acrylic case. Each case, in-turn, is designed to sit on a small easel as a beautiful display. This feature allows them to be picked-up and handled, or even turned around on the easel to display the verso side if desired. PLAY King John QUOTATION "This England never did, nor never shall, Lye at the proud foote of a Conqueror" This is one of the few remaining 1632 Shakespeare "Second Folio" quotation leaves from my "Shakespeare 200" limited edition, which is among the most extraordinary Shakespearean limited editions ever created.

Sagard [Theodat], Gabriel
Paris: Chez Denys Moreau, ruë St. Jacques, à la Salamandre s'Argent, 1632. First edition. Extra engraved title; [22], 380, [2]; 12, [146], [14] pp. (a8, e8, A-Z8, a-k8). 8vo (6-9/16 x 4-1/4 in.). "One of the most important early works on the North American Indian". This "work of great interest and importance" (Sabin), an account of Récollet lay-brother Sagard's missionary work in Huronia, contains the FIRST PRINTED DICTIONARY OF THE HURON LANGUAGE and is the primary non-Jesuit source on Huron life and life on the Récollet mission to Canada from 1615 to 1629 (Streeter). Sagard was a missionary to the Huron nation from 1623-24, and this work is based on his time in Huronia as well as the accounts, documents, and letters of his contemporaries. He travelled with Nicolas Viel and arrived in Quebec at the end of June 1623. They followed the Ottawa River to Georgian Bay where a mission to the Hurons had been established by Joseph Le Caron. It was from Le Caron that Sagard acquired the basics of the Huron language so as to embark immediately on baptizing the Indians. "In the spring of 1624, he was permitted to return to Quebec for provisions, but by then was so popular with the Indians that he had to give them his word that he would return. However, a letter from his superior, ordering him back to France, forced him to break his promise" (Howgego). Greenly states: "Sagard and Champlain were the first explorers to give any very definite statements about the Huron Indian country and what they had learned from these Indians about the Great Lakes Country."

BELLI, Francesco (1577-1644)
Giovanni Pietro Pinelli. In 4to; legatura in cartonato con nervi passanti di metà Settecento; pp. (12), 189, (1), (2 bianche). Marca tipografica al titolo. Firma di appartenenza cassata sul titolo. Esemplare a tratti un po' brunito e fiorito, ma nel complesso fresco e genuino.RARA PRIMA EDIZIONE dedicata dall'autore a Girolamo Diedo (Venezia, 26 maggio, 1632)."Nel complesso dell'attività del Belli le pagine più vive restano le Osservazioni sul viaggio in Olanda e in Francia (pubblicate a Venezia nel 1632), iniziato nel maggio del '26 da Rotta Sabadina nel Polesine al seguito di Giorgio Zorzi, ambasciatore in Olanda, e conclusosi sulle rive dell'Oceano. Il Belli accenna nel libro ai luoghi più pittoreschi del suo itinerario: Verona, Desenzano, Bergamo, Lecco, Como; con tocchi delicati descrive il lago di Lugano e ricorda singolari incontri con gustosa vivacità , come quello avvenuto prima di arrivare a Bellinzona ("dove non si conoscono ladri, perché le merci stanno dì e notte sopra le pubbliche strade") con due guardie disarmate e un placidissimo malandrino avviato alla galera. La narrazione del Belli, benché quasi sempre contenuta nei limiti della scarna relazione, è piena di osservazioni su interessanti costumi locali; talvolta, con spirito di curioso osservatore, ci svela la sua spiccata sensibilità barocca, quando, ad esempio, si sofferma sulla fattura "bizzarra" delle case degli Svizzeri (p. 16). In genere, però, le descrizioni del paesaggio sono sommarie e tutto viene ridotto al carattere stereotipo dell' "assai vago", troppo spesso del "gentile" o "delicato", del "gr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Antwerp: trimmed at top margin years ago, tips worn, head and foot of back chipped. A nice 4to copy of perhaps the first edition by Plantin Press of Odes 4, 1632 with additions beyond, 339 pages. Head and tail chipped, top edge trimmed, perhaps 18th C, as the binding may be 18th C. Maciej Kazimierz Sarbiewski was the most famous Latin poet in Europe. He is considered the last Latin poet. This may be the first edition by the Plantin Press of his Fourth Odes. The frontice piece is after Rubens, as he was friends of the press. Undoubtedly scarce.

Shakespeare, William
Tho. Cotes, for Robert Allot, London. Folio (305 x 210 mm; 12 x 8"). Paginated 1-22. Large woodcut headpiece. Bound by Bernard Middleton in full calf antique, tooled to a Cambridge design: contrasting paneled boards with outer frame and inner panel sprinkled, fillets and corner ornaments tooled in blind, sympathetic pastedowns and endpapers. Title lettered in gilt direct on front cover, along with "Second Folio 1632." Signed by Bernard Middleton in calligraphic script on final binder's leaf. Excellent condition. Beautifully bound copy of the entire play of King John extracted from the Second Folio. This is one of the most desirable of Shakespeare's history plays, dramatising the reign of John King of England (ruled 1199-1216). John was the son of Henry II of England and Eleanor of Aquitaine. As his primary historical source, Shakespeare drew upon the 1587 edition of Holinshed's Chronicles. The play is closely related to the anonymous play of "The Troublesome Reign of King John" (ca. 1589). King John is one of only two Shakespearian plays written entirely in verse, the other being Richard II. The binder of our copy is the legendary Bernard Middleton, MBE (b. 1932). Middleton trained at the Central School of Art and Design in London and spent many years at the bindery of the British Museum / British Library; afterwards he managed Zaehnsdorf, one of the most prestigious binderies in London, and then established his own business. He has researched and written extensively on the history of bookbinding; produced many designer bindings; and received commissions from noted collecto … [Click Below for Full Description]

Beautifully bound copy of the entire play of the Comedy of Errors extracted from the Second Folio. This is one of the most desirable of all the comedies in the Shakespearian canon. The Comedy of Errors is justly famous for its slapstick humor, puns, clever word games, and riotous instances of mistaken identity. Even the title itself has passed into the English language as an idiom for a series of riculous errors. The play involves two sets of identical twins, all separated at birth. It shows Shakespeare's mastery of the art of comedy in the broadest sense, while obliquely referencing the failures of the Elizabethan feudal economy.

Tho. Cotes, for Robert Allot, London. Folio (305 x 210 mm; 12 x 8"). Paginated 205-232. Large woodcut headpiece. Bound by Bernard Middleton in full calf antique, tooled to a Cambridge design: contrasting paneled boards with outer frame and inner panel sprinkled, fillets and corner ornaments tooled in blind, sympathetic pastedowns and endpapers. Title lettered in gilt direct on front cover, along with "Second Folio 1632." Signed by Bernard Middleton in calligraphic script on final binder's leaf. Excellent condition. Beautifully bound copy of the entire play of "Henry VIII" extracted from the Second Folio. This is one of the most desirable of all the history plays in the Shakespearian canon. The synopsis of "Henry VIII" is so justly famous that it requires little introduction. It was written by Shakespeare with John Fletcher, and as such is one of the so-called collaborative plays; stylistically it exhibits characteristics of Shakespeare's late romances. It is a remarkable fact that in 1613, during one of the earliest performances of Henry VIII, a "special effects" cannon was triggered and accidentally ignited the thatched roof of the Globe Theatre, resulting in its total ruin. The principal historical source of the play was Raphael Holinshed's Chronicles (1577). In the play Shakespeare transposed many events for dramatic effect; the beheading of Anne Boleyn is omitted, and there is no reference to her four successors. The text of the play seems to imply that the charges against the Duke of Buckingham were groundless. More explicit are the pleas of Catherine of Aragon to Henr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Shakespeare, William
London: Tho. Cotes, for Robert Allot, 1632. [The Second Impression]. Folio (305 x 210 mm; 12 x 8"). Paginated 163-184. Large woodcut headpiece. Bound by Bernard Middleton in full calf antique, tooled to a Cambridge design: contrasting paneled boards with outer frame and inner panel sprinkled, fillets and corner ornaments tooled in blind, sympathetic pastedowns and endpapers. Title lettered in gilt direct on front cover, along with "Second Folio 1632." Signed by Bernard Middleton in calligraphic script on final binder's leaf. Excellent condition. Beautifully bound copy of the entire play of "The Merchant of Venice" extracted from the Second Folio. This is one of the most desirable of all the plays in the Shakespearian canon, and remains one of the finest works of Elizabethan drama. The Merchant of Venice is so justly famous that it requires little introduction. It was composed ca. 1598; it first appeared in print as a Quarto in 1600, followed by: the Second Quarto of 1619, the First Folio of 1623, and the present Second Folio edition of 1632. The Merchant of Venice is considered by modern critics to be one of Shakespeare's romantic comedies, best remembered for its dramatic scenes and reflections on humanity. Two timeless speeches appear herein, namely Portia's speech on "the quality of mercy" and Shylock's speech: "I am a Jew. Hath not a Jew eyes?" Much debate exists surrounding Shylock's character, both villanous and sympathetic, whose conversion to Christianity at the end of the play would have been, in the eyes of Elizabethan audiences, cause for celebration.

Bound by Bernard Middleton in full calf antique, tooled to a Cambridge design: contrasting paneled boards with outer frame and inner panel sprinkled, fillets and corner ornaments tooled in blind, sympathetic pastedowns and endpapers. Title lettered in gilt direct on front cover, along with "Second Folio 1632." Signed by Bernard Middleton in calligraphic script on final binder's leaf. Excellent condition. Beautifully bound copy of the entire play "Measure for Measure" extracted from the Second Folio. This is one of the most desirable of all the plays in the Shakespearian canon, and remains one of the finest works in Elizabethan drama. Measure for Measure is so justly famous that it requires little introduction. It first appeared in the First Folio of 1623 (there were no quarto editions that preceded it) followed by the present Second Folio edition of 1632. Because the play does not end tragically, it is technically a comedy, but modern critics describe it as one of Shakespeare's "problem plays," incredibly deep and complex. In it, Shakespeare explores themes of corruption and incorruptability; sin and virtue; the responsibility of civil law; morality and the dichotomy of justice and mercy. The binder of our copy is the legendary Bernard Middleton, MBE (b. 1932).

Although at the time of publication it was grouped among the Comedies, modern critics describe it as one of Shakespeare's "problem plays," incredibly deep and complex: the first three acts contain intense psychological drama, followed by comedy and a happy ending.

These explanations of the Ottoman and Arabian costume engravings based on the account of Nicolas Nicolay d'Arfeuille and on the Byzantine prophecies of Thomas Artus, Sieur d’Embry (c. 1550-after 1614), who is known for his satirical take on the French court, "Les Hermaphrodites", were variously published throughout the 17th century as an appendix to the history of the Ottoman Empire of Chalkokondyles, but were also issued separately, as is the case with the present copy. The repeated plate 60/61 and the duplicated plate number 64 identify this as Guillemot's 1632 Paris edition. Among the plates are an "Arabic merchant", an "Emir, descended from Muhammad", "Pilgrims returning from Makkah", a "Persian gentleman", a "Turkish lady dressed for going to town" etc.; at the end: prophecies foretelling the downfall of the Ottoman Empire. - Occasional insignificant brownstaining; some slight worming (also touching text and images); some repaired edge defects.

GILLES (Pierre), LAET (Jean de)
(1632) Réunion de deux titres. I. Willems 366. Première édition elzévirienne. Pierre Gilles (1489-1555) partit pour l'Orient en 1544 et eut l'occasion de visiter aussi bien la Grèce que la Turquie, puis la Syrie, la Palestine, le Sinaï, l'Égypte et l'Afrique du Nord. Il s'intéressa plus particulièrement à la capitale ottomane et au détroit du Bosphore. Mais en 1550 il tomba entre les mains des pirates à Djerba, et ceux-ci le dépouillèrent des dossiers qu'il avait constitués au long de son périple en Orient. Libéré et revenu à Constantinople, il y passa près d'une année, avant de quitter définitivement le Bosphore en 1551 ou 1552, un fois reconstituée la matière de ses deux ouvrages sur Constantinople et le Bosphore. Les opuscules de Pierre Gilles (sous sa forme latine Petrus Gillius, ou Gyllius) ont été souvent cités et largement utilisés, car ils décrivent un état ancien de la ville de Constantinople et de ses alentours et ils signalent nombre de monuments ou de sites qui ont disparu depuis (Albert Failler, Revue des études byzantines, vol. 67, pp. 247-249). Beau titre gravé. II. Willems 623. Première édition elzévirienne. Géographe hollandais, Jean de Laet (1581-1649) consacra sa vie à la théologie et à la géographie ; il fut le directeur de la Compagnie hollandaise des Indes occidentales, et devint célèbre pour ses descriptions de pays. Beau titre gravé et 8 planches de costumes gravées sur bois, hors-texte. Bon exemplaire.

Paolo Giovio (1483 - 1552) was an Italian physician, historian, biographer, and prelate. Visconti is the family name of two important Italian noble dynasties of the Middle Ages. There are two distinct Visconti families: the first one (chronologically) in the Republic of Pisa in the mid twelfth century who achieved prominence first in Pisa, then in Sardinia where they became rulers of Gallura. The second rose to power in Milan, where they ruled from 1277 to 1447 and where several collateral branches still exist. Pope Gregory X, who reigned from 1271 to 1276, was a member of the House of Visconti. The renowned director Luchino Visconti is a scion of this latter family.

Ovid / G S
Oxford: Imprinted by John Lichfield, 1632. Condition: Very Good binding. Though published in London, Sandys' translation of Ovid's Metamorphosis was written during his time as the treasurer of the Virginia Company in America, and is thus considered "the first utterance of the conscious literary spirit articulated in America," as all previous original literature penned in the colonies were for immediate, practical purposes [Tyler, A History of American Literature, 1607-1676, p. 54]. Sandys was conscious of Ovid's connection between the Ancient World and the New World: "Sprung from the Stocke of the ancient Romanes; but bred in the New-World, of the rudeness where of it cannot but participate" [from the Dedication to King Charles I]. This being the First Illustrated Edition of that work, with thirteen engraved plates, including the frontispiece, and an additional engraved title. Lacking the engraved plates at the start of chapters nine, thirteen, and fifteen; the plate for chapter twelve is present, but misbound at just before the end of chapter eleven. The "Essay" is actually a translation of the first book of the Aeneis; the full translation was unfinished and the project abandoned by the time of publication. With all points given by the ESTC, and the 3-line initials on the Errata page denoting both the preliminaries and quire Vvv were printed by William Stansby in London. Modern binding and endpapers.

Folio. An extraordinarily well preserved copy of an early printing of the 1611 King James Bible, entirely complete with all preliminaries (genealogies, calendar, maps, etc.). Red-ruled with leaves crisp and clean throughout. Quite rare in this condition. Herbert's # 466: "Perhaps published early in 1633; since in many copies the last figure 2 of the date on the general title has been altered by pen to 3." In this copy, the General Title, New Testament Title and colophon leaf are all dated 1632; though the General Title has been altered as cited by Herbert. An extremely fine example for a collector desirous of a representative copy of the crowning jewel of English Bible translation and one of the most desired antiquarian books of all time. Preparation of the Royal Version took more than five years and was laboriously attended to by over fifty translators and researchers. Six separate groups were assigned a specific section of the Scriptures and each made a preliminary translation under the direction of Lancelot Andrewes, Edward Lively and John Harding. The final translations were then exchanged and reviewed, reaching a final committee of six. Supervision of the printing was carried out by Miles Smith and Thomas Bilson.
