         Poems, By J D With Elegies on the Authors Death

      London: by E.P. for Henry Seyle,, 1633. London: by M.F. for John Marriot, and are to be sold at his Shop, 1633; [with] Juvenilia, or certaine Paradoxes, and Problemes, written by J. Donne. 2 works bound in 1, quarto (186 × 137 mm). Contemporary calf, skilfully rebacked and relined to style, covers with three-line blind rules, edges speckled red, manuscript shelf number to fore-edge. Housed in a dark brown flat back cloth solander box. Skilful restoration to board edges, small spot of worm damage to lower cover, contents slightly toned, edges of last few leaves browned from turn-ins, an excellent copy. First edition of the principal collection of Donne's poetical works, issued two years after his death, here bound together with the first edition of his Juvenilia. This copy of Poems has the two inserted leaves with "The Printer to the Understanders" and Hexastichon Bibliopolae, not always present, and has the leaf Nn1 in the earlier uncorrected state with 35 lines of text on p. 273 instead of 30 or 31, with omission of the usual running headline. The editor of this first edition evidently made use of more than one group of surviving manuscripts. While he made a number of minor changes on his own authority, the 1633 Poems remains the best early text of the most important of all metaphysical poetry collections, including "To Sir Henry Wotton" ("Bee thine own Palace, or the world's thy g[ao]le"), "The Good Morrow", "Song" ("Goe, and catche a falling starre"), "The Sunne Rising", "Aire and Angels", "Loves growth", and "The Flea".

         The two bookes of Sr. Francis Bacon, of the proficience and advancement of learning, divine and humane

      Oxford: J. Lichfield for Thomas Huggins 1633 - Of the advancement of learning. Small quarto. 19 cm. Third Edition. [2], [1]-166, 169-335 pp. Contemporary calf, gilt spine, red leather spine label. Rubbing and splitting to joints. Armorial bookplate of John Baker Holroyd, 1st Earl of Sheffield. Occasional spotting, scattered pencil marginalia. From the personal library of Mr. Thomas Creed, who came to the US from England and founded Creed's Book Store in 1923. An early edition of Bacon's important book on the history of science, scientific philosophy, logic and rationalism. "Bacon's major contribution to the development of science lies in his natural philosophy, his philosophy of scientific method, and in his projects for the practical organization of science. During the last years of his life, he expounded these ideas in a series of works, of which the Twoo bookes was the first. The only work Bacon ever published in English, it was later expanded and Latinized into De augmentis scientiarum (1623). In the Twoo bookes, Bacon concerned himself primarily with the classification of philosophy and the sciences and with developing his influential view of the relation between science and theology. While preserving the traditional distinction between knowledge obtained by divine revelation and knowledge acquired through the senses, Bacon saw both theoretical and applied science as religious duties, the first for a greater knowledge of God through his creation, and the second for the practice of charity to one's fellows by improving their condition. This view of science as a religious function maintained its authority throughout the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries, and was an important factor in the public success of the scientific movement" (Norman Library).

Possibly, the author was lieutenant Thomas Stafford, who served under Carew, but whose name is mentioned only a single time in the entire narrative. The book, which, in the words of its editor, Standish O'Grady, “deals with the stormy conclusion of a stormy century, the lurid sunset of one of the wildest epochs in Irish history,” shows how complete, in the days of Mountjoy's viceroyalty, was the absence of anything like patriotism or public spirit from all but a very few of the Irish lords and that of all sense of honourable dealing from English officials.

         Certaine Learned and Elegant Workes of the Right Honorable Fulke Lord Brooke

      E. Purslowe / Henry Seyle, London 1633 - FIRST EDITION. Published posthumously, this is a lovely first edition and primary source for the writings of this notable English nobleman. Statesman, dramatist and poet, Fulke Greville (1554-1628) was a fascinating figure of 16th-17th century England. This edition presents some of his most significant literary works, including the famous and mysterious Caelica sonnets, as well as A Treatise of Humane Learning, An Inquisition upon Fame and Honour, A Treatise of Wars, Alaham, Mustapha, A Letter to an Honorable Lady, and A Letter of Travel. * Ex-libris bookplate with standing lion. Custom binding by Maltby's Oxford, likely late 1800s or early 1900s. Beautiful antique fine leather binding is blind tooled on front/back, with gilt along cover edges, spine, and on the leather turn-ins of cover (two bright lines around pastedown). * Volume has been beautifully preserved. Brown leather has rubbed and creased shoulders, with light edgewear and lightly scuffed corners. Spine has title and year in bright gilt, with 3 gilt dots on each of 5 raised bands, and light scuffing in places. Binder's stamp in bright gilt at foot of front pastedown. Binding is tight and strong. Endpapers and feps are a fine grade paper, with gently toned edges. Although aged, these are clearly of a fresher vintage than the text. Ex libris book features an owner's bookplate on front pastedown, as well as sticker residue as if from a former bookplate. Title page has light pencil notes in foot and fore margins, as well as bleed from verso. Interior shows commensurate aging along a range of intensities: varied toning and foxing throughout: some smudges and bleed; very little fading; overall very legible. Text block edges are darkened with faded gilt along head. Pages may have been professionally trimmed at rebinding. Book may exhibit additional minor signs of age or wear. 298 pages. 6 x 9.25 inches. Postage for oversized and international shipping will be calculated by size and weight. AbeBooks shipping quotes are ESTIMATES only.

         Das Norder theil des Lands Brasilien .

      Francoforte 1633 - Carta geografica raffigurante parte del Pernambuco, con le città di Olinda e Recife. La carta è tratta dall'ultima edizione de "Grandi Viaggi" di Johannes Theodor de Bry, curata da Mattheus Merian ed edita a Francoforte nel 1633-34. Incisione in rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. The map, displayed on a roll above, shows the coastal contours, with place-names along the Brazilian coast near Recife and Olinda, and below is a bird's-eye view of the siege with ships and the movements of the troops. With the hope of taking control of the sugar trade in Brazil, the fleet of the Dutch West India Company attacked Recife. While the troops landed further north, the fleet, under the command of Admiral Lonq, tried to force an entrance to the harbour but his ships were repulsed by the Portuguese, under the command of Albuquerque. The siege lasted two weeks and in the end the Dutch finally broke through. The Portuguese, however, not wishing their rivals to benefit from their labours, burnt all their sugar warehouses and shipping, the loss of which was estimated at two million ducats.

      Paris, Pierre Chaudière 1633 - in-folio, [3] ff. n. ch. (titre, dédicace, privilège), 724 pp., [6] ff. n. ch. de table des lettres, interversion des ff. 581-82 et 583-84, et 715-16 et 717-18, manque le portrait, veau fauve granité, dos à nerfs cloisonné et fleuronné à l'imitation, pièce de titre cerise, tranches mouchetées (rel. du XIXe siècle). Quelques mouillures claires, mais bon exemplaire. Comme les éditions de 1623 et 1629, notre troisième sortie est dédiée à Pierre Brûlart, vicomte de Puysieux (1583-1640), secrétaire d'État et grand trésorier. Il était le fils du chancelier Nicolas Brûlart de Sillery qui avait négocié le divorce et le remariage du roi Henri IV avec Marie de Médicis. Jacques Davy Du Perron (1556-1618) passa sa jeunesse en Suisse où s'étaient réfugiés ses parents calvinistes. En 1576, il vint à Paris où sur les conseils du poète Philippe Desportes, il abjura le protestantisme et obtint la place de lecteur de Henri III, ce qui lui permit de laisser libre cours à des travaux d'érudition et de poésie. À la mort du dernier Valois, il fut remarqué par Henri IV qui lui donna l'évêché d'Évreux. Proche du nouveau roi, il usa de son influence sur ce dernier pour le ramener à la religion catholique et, en 1595, il obtint, secondé par l'abbé Arnaud d'Ossat, son absolution de la part du pape Clément VIII. Sacré évêque à Rome, il se consacra désormais à la prédication et suscita de nombreuses conversions. Ses qualités de controversiste et de diplomate le firent nommer ambassadeur de France à Rome avant de devenir archevêque de Sens (1606) et membre du Conseil de Régence (1610). Ce recueil a été établi par son secrétaire César de Ligny qui ne reproduit pas les lettres déjà parues dans Les Diverses ?uvres (Paris, 1622, 3 vol. in-folio) dont les Ambassades sont considérées comme un tome quatrième. Il y a là 84 lettres au roi, des lettres de cardinaux et à des cardinaux, à Bellegarde, Bellièvre, Béthune, La Boderie, Harlay, Sully, Canaye. Le tout rangé dans un certain ordre chronologique, sauf les pièces relatives à l'absolution. C'est sur cette affaire que la collection est importante, ainsi que sur les conclaves de Léon XI et Paul V. Cioranescu, 8972. SHF, Hauser, X, 2705. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

         Self portrait Anna Maria van Schurman (Schuurman).

      In this self portrait Anna Maria van Schurman combined the techniques of engraving and etching. She depicted herself wearing an elegant dress embellished with lace on the bodice and sleeves. She convincingly rendered the illusion of spatial depth by shading the inner rim of the oval frame and placing herself behind a ledge, which pushes her figure farther back into the picture plane.That ledge also obscures her hands. Van Schurman hid her hands in her first engraved self-portrait (1633), as well, for which a correspondent, the poet and statesman Constantijn Huygens, chided her. He admonished van Schurman for being ashamed of her ink-stained hands, which he said ""have never found their equal.""As the inscription on the oval frame tells us, the artist realized this palte in 1640 when she was 33 years old. The Latin inscription at the bottom is addressed to her friends, to whom she sent this portrait. It reads: 'See my likeness depicted in this portrait:/May your favor perfect the work where art has failed.' [Cernitis hic picta nostros in imagine vultus: / Si negat ars forma, gratia vestra dabit]. Signed on bottom right with her initials: 'A.M. á S. Fec.'. Etching and engraving on laid paper; trimmed closed to plate mark; total: 203 x 156 mm; state IV/4, some dirt and smudges along the margins; some dirt on the verso; two tiny worm holes the size of small pin holes. Little scratch mark on the forehead; beautiful impression; Hollstein 3.
