Bosse, Abraham (1602-1676)
"Published in Paris by Jean Leblon between 1632-1635, the set featured seven plates representing seven different trades (the doctor, the owner of a tavern... ). Four columns of French text below. Signed within plate on the bottom right: ""A. Bosse in fé"", addressed at the bottom: ""A Paris Chez le Blond avec Privilege du Roy."" Great is the amount of details. The gaze of the beholder is soon kidnapped by the gorgeous gowns of the characters, from the surgeon to the young maid on the left. On the background on the left an opened window that shows houses on the street. On the wall are two portraits, with the dates: 1635 and 1632. Below a large river landscape; the rest of the wall is covered with tapestries. The decorative frame of the print recalls the decoration of the tapestries. A cat and a dog are sitting next to each other. Behind the figures on the right, a fictive wall with two vases atop. Above, also a lute is visible. "."Etching on paper, trimmed close to plate (on the top especially): tot: 270 x 365 mm; state II (?)/2; the print is backed with Japanese paper, as reinforcement. On the top margin a small repaired hole. Some smudges due to handling, light foxing overall; in good condition. "

PYROTECHNICS - FIREWORKS - MALTHE, FRANCOIS de. (FRANCIS MALTHUS).
Paris, Pierre Gvillemot, 1632. 8vo. Cont. full limp vellum, remains of ties. Titlelabel in red leather on back, this with a small nick. Top of spine strenghtened with a strip of vellum. Engraved title with Neptun & Mars. (6),277,(10) pp., 28 half-page textengravings and 15 large wood-cut illustrations. A few scattered brownspots. A good copy. ¶ Second enlaged edition of this scarce treatise of fireworks for war and recreation. The work is divided in five sections: the first 56 pp. to war, pp. 57-146 to 'recreation' and pp. 147-277 to sundials, fortification, geometry and arithmetics. 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.

Ovid | G. S. [George Sandys] (Translator)
Oxford: Imprinted by John Lichfield, 1632. Half Leather. 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. Half brown calf over tan cloth boards, with a black morocco label and lettering stamped in gilt. Sunning to the spine and top of the front board; minor wear to the joi … [Click Below for Full Description]

CEREMONIAL CUISINE SCROLLS
Scroll I: 305 x 7365 mm., scroll II: 305 x 4820 mm. At end of each scroll it is written (in trans.): "1632. Written by Youemon Hirase for Sakuzaemon Kimura.". Formal banquets, created by hochonin (chefs and carvers) for daimyo, shoguns, aristocrats, and the emperor, at which ceremonial cuisine was served in late medieval and early modern Japan, oftentimes required that the food not be eaten. "Avoiding eating was often the most polite thing to do at a formal banquet...In extreme instances, a guest might sit down to an elaborate and visually stunning banquet in which only a small number of dishes could be eaten. To know what to do in these circumstances, diners had to rely on past custom, visual cues, and a familiarity with the symbolic associations of ingredients and the mean of certain place settings, and remain attentive to any hints from their host about what they were expect to eat and what they should not try to consume...ceremonial cuisine was synonymous with practices of not eating that demanded the appreciation of food in other ways, sometimes as a symbol evoking transcendent values such as martial virtues or marital felicity, and other items as an art form akin to flower arrangement or sculpture."-Rath, Food and Fantasy in Early Modern Japan, pp. 52-53. The earliest Japanese culinary writings, from the late 15th to the mid-17th century, were concerned with inedible dishes at banquets, written for a select readership of specialists to facilitate creation of the most refined dining experiences for the elite. These two finely illustrated early scrolls depict … [Click Below for Full Description]

Later Jonston used this work as a basis for more specialized texts.

Attractive folio King James Bible, set in roman in double columns ruled in red throughout, with woodcut headpieces and decorative capitals. Darlow and Moule suggest that this edition was actually printed in early 1633, as a number of copies are recorded as having their title-page dates altered by hand to read 1633, as is the case here. The Apocrypha are present, with the blank space on the last page of Malachi filled with an early inked "account of the several books in the Apocrypha." => The Psalter following the Bible includes music. The O.T. title-page is engraved and signed (very faintly in this example) by William (here "Guilielmus") Hole, and is framed by an elaborate architectural border displaying the coats of arms of the 12 tribes of Israel and portraits of the 12 Apostles. => The recto of the list of books is a full-page engraving of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, surrounded by animals. The New Testament has a separate title-page, dated 1632, with an ornate wood-engraved border featuring Justice and Truth along with the British lion and unicorn and various architectural motifs. The volume opens with two fly-leaves b … [Click Below for Full Description]

AESOP.
Landwehr, Emblem & fable books F025 (2 copies); Hollstein XXVII, Van Sichem II, 31; for the panel-stamp: Spoelder, Prijsboeken, Amersfoort 1. Rare second(?) edition (one of three dated "1632") of a popular Greek and Latin school book, edited by the famous Dutch neo-Latin poet, humanist and Leiden Professor of Greek, Daniel Heinsius (1580-1655), with 47 beautiful woodcut illustrations by Christoffel van Sichem II. Aesop's fables were prescribed by the States of Holland in the Hollandsche schoolordre of 1625 as one of the books to be read in the 3rd class. Christoffel van Sichem II (ca. 1577-1658), the second of several woodcut artists in that family, studied with Jacques de Gheyn and was one of the leading Dutch book illustrators in the first half of the 17th century. Although the book has no prize certificate or inscription and no owner's name, the coat-of-arms of the city of Amersfoort on the binding of a school book strongly suggests a prize binding for a student at the Amersfoort Latin school. With an occasional contemporary manuscript note in Greek and Latin. With a small dark stain in the lower inside corner of the foot margin of many leaves, not approaching the text, and with very slight browning throughout, but still in good condition. The vellum of the binding is dirty and slightly rubbed but also good.

Speed, John
London: Printed by John Dawson for George Humble, 1632. Sold in Popes-head Pallace, at the signe of the White Horse. Third edition, re-issued, enlarged, and corrected (pp. 1237, Summary of the Whole, Table of Contents). Small folio (34 cm) in full modern calf with restrained decoration by Burbidge, gilt titles to spine, six raised bands. New endpapers, archival repairs to the title page, the first ten pages, and to a few subsequent pages; table of contents ends at ‘traitors’. Text in two columns and with lined margins; numerous woodcuts as seals, coins, head and tail pieces, and other decorations; genealogical charts, arms. Text generally clean and bright, text block firm. Although Speed is said to have regarded his Historie as his most important work, it is for the atlas volume comprising which accompanied it, Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine, that he is best known. The Historie and the Theatre, as was the practice of the time, were something of a joint effort-- the plates from which the maps were printed having been engraved by Hondius and Speed was closely associated with fellow members of the Society of Antiquaries such as William Camden and Robert Cotton (ODNB). In his biography of Speed (1551- 1629), Baynton- Williams says, “We do not know the price for which the First Edition sold, but the 1627 edition of the Theatre was offered at 40 shillings bound, 30 shillings unbound, and the History for 30 shillings bound, 20 shillings unbound. In much the same way, the atlas could be purchased with the maps either in black and white or coloured”. According to the ODNB, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Delff); 3 parts in one vol: pp. nn. 23, then pp. 24-79, (1 b.); 180; 186, (6); folding plate (Canon sexagenarium) at the end of 2nd part. FIRST EDITION OF THE "TABULAE" which are perhaps Lansberg's most famous work, and contain the coordinates to predict the position of the planets. Tabulae perpetuae were patiently compiled 44 years; however, they were not free from errors, due mainly to non implementation of the recent discovery of elliptical orbits of Kepler (1622).
