        A Treatise Of the Divine Promises In Five Books

      Printed by George Miller dwelling in Black Friers,, London: 1633 - Fair in contemporary full leather covered boards with ruled black bands on the spine and black ruled borders on the boards. A small octavo measuring 7 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches with much of the leather of the spine missing and the boards are loose from the text block as is the first free end page. Worm holes are present throughout the pages of the text block, but they seem to have been careful about not invading the printed areas. Written in pencil at the upper edge of the title page are the words: "very scarce". 260 pages of text followed by a six page index of "the principall (sic) things contained in this Treatise". This copy shows the author's name as "Edward Legh". Subsequent editions of the book modified his name to "Edward Leigh". Edward Leigh (1602-1671) was a theologian and early English Puritan. His writings were prolific but he was more of a compiler than writer of original thought. This title appears to have been his first book. OCLC reports that only 14 college, university or national libraries own a copy of this title. Later printings and facsimile copies are more in evidence worldwide. As of this writing, no other copies of the first edition of this title are listed for sale. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Le Grandi Miserie della Guerra - Arruolamento delle truppe

      1633 - Acquaforte, 1633, della serie Le Grandi Miserie della Guerra. Esemplare del secondo stato di tre, avanti la firma di Callot e con la lastra numerata. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "corno da caccia" (Lieure 47), con margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Callot incise due serie di stampe che illustrano le miserie della guerra. La prima, in un formato più piccolo e quindi chiamata Le Piccole miserie della guerra, è costituita da sei stampe, che Callot incise intorno al 1632. Le piccole miserie di solito sono considerati come schizzi preliminari per le più famose Grandi Miserie. Les Grandes Misères et Malheurs de la Guerre, furono pubblicate nel 1633, nel corso del conflitto paneuropeo conosciuto come la Guerra dei Trent'anni, con il privilegio reale di Luigi XIII. La serie è composta da 18 incisioni, incluso il frontespizio. La dimensione delle immagini incise è piuttosto piccola, 113-115 x 51-57 mm; questo obbligherebbe chi le osserva a esaminarle molto da vicino, in modo da poter vedere chiaramente i dettagli di ogni stampa. La loro forma rettangolare, crea un allungamento del campo pittorico che promuove una sorta di scansione progressiva nella visualizzazione. Inoltre, il testo sotto l'immagine, che ha un orientamento orizzontale, fornisce la direzione di lettura da sinistra a destra. In ogni di crea un contrasto tra la raffigurazione più indistinta di gruppi di persone e il dettaglio di altri gruppi più esigui nel numero di figure. I diversi scenari e le persone che vi figurano non hanno dei riferimenti evidenti di una specifica nazionalità o identità. Infatti, la mancanza di questi elementi consente esaminare in maniera più generale la natura della guerra, senza entrare in polemica o abbracciare le idee propagandistiche del periodo. Tranne il frontespizio, ogni incisione è accompagnato da sei versi, sotto forma di tre rime baciate, attribuiti a Michel de Marolles, Abbé de Villeloin. Pur non essendoci prove certe, l’attribuzione sembra ragionevole dato che l'abate era un poeta e un grande collezionista de stampe che possedeva, infatti, 1468 stampe di Callot. La serie inizia con tre lastre raffiguranti la guerrain senso stretto: il frontespizio reca gli emblemi della guerra, seguono poi "Il reclutamento delle truppe", e "La Battaglia". Le successive cinque stampe, 4-8, mostrano i crimini commessi dai militari: il saccheggio di una locanda, di una casa, di un chiostro, di un villaggio, e l'assalto ai viandanti. La stampa successiva, la numero 9, illustra la scoperta cattura dei soldati-predoni. Seguono cinque stampe, 10-14, che mostrano le pene di questi soldati: la corda, l’impiccagione, la fucilazione, il rogo, e la ruota. Tre stampe, 15-17, illustrano le sventure che accadono ai soldati: malati e feriti nell'ospedale; mendicanti ed i moribondi per le strade; La vendetta dei contadini. L'ultima stampa, 18, mostra la distribuzione delle ricompense ai soldati. Etching, 1633, from the Large Miseries of War. Second state, dated 1633 (in the title page) and with the plate numbered. A very good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, with "hunting horn" watermark (Lieure 47), with margins, very good condition. Callot etched two series of prints illustrating the miseries of the war. The first, in a smaller format and therefore called the Small Miseries of War, consist of six prints, which Callot etched ca. 1632. The Small Miseries are usually treated as a preliminary sketches for the more famous Large Miseries. Les Grandes Misères et Malheurs de la Guerre, issued in 1633, during the course of the pan-European conflict known as the Thirty Years War, with a royal privilege from Louis XIII. The series consist of 18 etchings, included the title pahe. The size of the etched images is quite small, 113-115 x 51-57 mm; this would compel a viewer to examine them in close physical proximity, so as to be able to see each print clearly. Their wide, shallow rectangular shape creates an elongation

        INFERNUS, Damnatorum Carcer et Rogus, AETERNITIS Pars IIe [.] ab Hier. Drexelio è Soc. Jesu.

      Colon. Agrippinae, Apud Bernard Gualteri, 1633 - 1 volume in-24 (116 x 60 mm. - Hauteur des marges : 114 mm.) de 1 titre-frontispice gravé, 9 feuillets non chiffrés, 312 pages chiffrées la table des chapitres (dernier feuillet). 9 figures gravées sur cuivre hors-texte (comprises dans la pagination). Texte en latin. Reliure plein vélin ivoire à rabats à l'imitation des reliures de l'époque, avec lacets, dos muet. Reliure de qualité, intérieur très frais. NOUVELLE ÉDITION.Cet ouvrage a paru en latin pour la première fois en 1623 et a été réimprimé de nombreuses fois au cours du XVIIe siècle. Le Jésuite Jérémie Drexel (Drexelius) (1581(1638), originaire d'Augsbourg, fut un célèbre prédicateur. Il était professeur de de littérature ascétique, d'humanité et de rhétorique. Il professait une véritable passion pour l'iconographie symbolique, mise en évidence ici avec les 9 compositions relatives aux tourments de l'Enfer, à ses Démons et ses Supplices. Les figures ne sont pas signées mais d'une très grande finesse et fort bien imprimées sur papier fin. Ce volume constitue la deuxième partie de son ouvrage intitulé De Arternitis (De l'Eternité). La vision de l'Enfer qui livre aux pécheurs est effrayante comme il se doit : hommes et femmes enchaînés dans les ténèbres, brûlés dans les flammes, accueillis par des monstres, projetés dans les entrailles de la terre, torturés sur la roue et dévorés par les basilics et autres griffons infernaux. Voilà ce qui nous attend lorsque le péché a envahi notre âme et notre cœur. Les damnés sont promis à tous les tourments et ce petit livre pourrait convertir plus d'un mécréant par la force de l'illustration seule. Bien que ce petit ouvrage ait été réimprimé de nombreuses fois, les exemplaires se trouvent aujourd'hui difficilement. Nous n'avons trouvé aucun exemplaire sur les sites de vente de livres rares en ligne (consultés le 18 mai 2017). Une notre manuscrite ancienne présente sur la garde blanche de notre exemplaire indique : "ce livre a été traduit en français par le jésuite Ant. Girard, 1638, par le P. Colombe barnabite, 1788.

        Tēs Kainēs Diathēkēs apanta: Novi Testamenti Libri

      [8] pp 459 [13] Sombre-bound Greek New Testament with attractive and most unusual late seventeenth century cut-work decoration to the goatskin covered boards, all edges black. Octavo format with triple blind ruled panels, two blind binder's devices and a central oval and floral cut-work decoration with floral and tulip designs to the corners. Marbled end-papers, printed text-block trimmed, sometimes touching signatures. Light staining to a few pages, backstrip probably reinforced internally with glue. Late eighteenth century ownership stamp to first blank of 'W. M Atkins'. This Greek New Testament was printed in Leiden by Elzevir for Richard Whittaker whose London address is given for the imprint. The first four words of the title in Greek are Romanised with an engraved printer's device below. The text, with its introduction by Whittaker and the Elzevir printer, forms part of the post-Reformation quest for an acceptable and intellectually plausible version of the New Testament in Greek. A fashion for sombre bindings existed around the fifty years from 1675 to 1725; this example is both unusual and very beautiful.

Needs new binding. Henry Coley (18 October 1633 30 April 1704) was an astrologer and mathematician, and amanuensis of William Lilly. Coley was born, as shown in an inscription round a portrait of him by Robert White, found in some of his works, on 18 October 1633 in Oxford. His father was a joiner. In 1648 he became a clerk in the Parliamentary army in 1654 he moved to London and worked as a ladies' tailor in Gray's Inn Lane. In 1656 he married and they had one child in 1660, after his wife's death, he married again their son born in 1661 died soon after birth. He taught himself mathematics, astrology, Latin and French. From 1663 he lived in Baldwins Gardens, where he taught astrology and mathematics, and received clients. By the 1670s he had a flourishing practice. In 1669 he published Clavis Astrologiæ Elimata or a Key to the whole Art of Astrology, new filed and polished. It was well received. A second and enlarged edition was published in 1676 it was dedicated to Elias Ashmole, and included a tribute by William Lilly. In 1672, following the success of Clavis, he published the first number of his almanac, and it appeared annually until his death. Coley acted as William Lilly's amanuensis from 1677, when the latter was stricken with the illness of which he eventually died. The editor of Lilly's Autobiography tells us: "His judgments and observations for the succeeding years till his death were all composed by his directions, Mr. Coley coming to Hersham the beginning of every summer, and stayed there till by conference with him he had despatched them for the press to whom at these opportunities he communicated his way of judgment and other 'Arcana.'" Lilly constantly makes reference in his works to Coley's merit as a man and as a professor of mathematics and occult science. On his death in 1681, Lilly bequeathed to him his almanac Merlini Anglici Ephemeris, or Astrological Judgment for the Year, which had reached its thirty-sixth year of publication from 1681 it was issued by Coley "according to the method of Mr. Lilly." After Lilly's death, Coley continued to publish his predictions, as for instance, The great and wonderful Predictions of that late famous Astrologer, William Lilly, Mr. Partridge, and Mr. Coley concerning this present year 1683. Coley attained considerable distinction as a mathematician: we are told by his almanac that he taught "arithmetic, vulgar, decimal, and logarithmical, geometry, trigonometry, astronomy, navigation, the use of the celestial and terrestrial globes, dialling, surveying, gaging, measuring, and the art of astrology in all its branches," at Baldwins Gardens. He corrected and enlarged Joseph Moxon's Mathematics made easy (London, 1692), and also William Forster's Arithmetic, or that useful art made easie (London, 1686). He died in London on 30 April 1704. (Wikipedia) William Lilly (11 May [O.S. 1 May] 1602 9 June 1681) has been described as "the most abused as well as the most celebrated astrologer of the seventeenth century". Born the son of a yeoman farmer in Leicestershire, Lilly travelled to London as a youth to take up a servant's position. Seven years later he secured his fortune by marrying his former master's widow, allowing him the leisure to study astrology. In 1644, during the English Civil War, he published the first of many popular astrological texts,and in 1647 he published Christian Astrology, a huge compendium of astrological technique. This was the first of its kind to be printed in the English language rather than Latin, and is said to have tutored "a nation in crisis in the language of the stars". By 1659, Lilly's fame was widely acknowledged and his annual almanac was achieving sales of around 30,000 copies a year. Lilly's autobiography, published towards the end of his life in 1681, at the request of his patron Elias Ashmole, gives candid accounts of the political events of his era, and biographical details of contemporaries that are unavailable elsewhere. It was described, in the late 18th century, as "one of the most entertaining narratives in our language", in particular for the historical portrayal it leaves of men like John Dee, Simon Forman, John Booker, Edward Kelley, including a whimsical first meeting of John Napier and Henry Briggs, respective co-inventors of the logarithm and Briggsian logarithms, and for its curious tales about the effects of crystals and the appearance of Queen Mab. In it, Lilly describes the friendly support of Oliver Cromwell during a period in which he faced prosecution for issuing political astrological predictions. He also writes about the 1666 Great Fire of London, and how he was brought before the committee investigating the cause of the fire, being suspected of involvement because of his publication of images, 15 years earlier, which depicted a city in flames surrounded by coffins. Lilly was a controversial character who was both aided and abetted by powerful friends and enemies. He attracted the attention of many members of Parliament, through the support of Sir Bulstrode Whitelocke, Lord Keeper of the Great Seal of England, (to whom he dedicated his Christian Astrology), but also accused Members of Parliament of engineering charges against him in 1651. To his supporters he was an "English Merlin" to his detractors he was a "juggling wizard and imposter". He is described as having been a genius at something "that modern mainstream opinion has since decided cannot be done at all", and having developed his stature as the most important astrologer in England through his social and political involvement, as well as his impact on the astrological tradition.

        Herball or Generall Historie of Plantes

      , 1633. 1633. GERARD, JOHN. The Herball or Generall Historie of Plantes. London: By Adam Islip, Joice Norton, and Richard Whitakers, 1633. Folio. Engraved title, [36], 30, 29-30, 29-1630, [48] p. Illustrated with over 2500 woodcuts of plants. Early nineteenth-century panelled calf, neatly rebacked retaining original fully gilt spine. Title lightly soiled but complete and free of any repair, blank fore- and bottom edges of A4-5 neatly extended, a few marginal tears neatly closed, intermittant faint dampstain in top margin becoming a bit more noticeable toward the end of the text, marginal repair to 7A1 (index) costing several page numbers, blank lower corner of 7B5 replaced. A very good and most attractive copy, without the extensive repairing and sophistication that nearly always comes with early English herbals. With an ownership inscription and cost dated 1634. The first printing of the second and "best" edition of John Gerard's great English herbal, very extensively corrected and enlarged by Thomas Johnson from the original edition of 1597. John Gerard (1545-1612) was a barber-surgeon and horticulturist who based his work on Rembert Dodoens' earlier Stirpium Historiae Pemptades Sex and on his own extensive gardening experience. Thirty-six years later, when a new and more accurate edition was called for, Thomas Johnson, a well-known apothecary and botanist, was chosen for the task. Johnson wrote a lengthy new preface, "corrected many of Gerard's more gullible errors, and improved the accuracy of the illustrations by using Plantin's woodcuts." (Hunt) Johnson's improvements were so great that "Johnson's Gerard" quickly became the desired edition, and a second printing was done in 1636. Early English herbals have always been keenly sought by collectors, and they are normally found either imperfect or heavily repaired and sophisticated. The present copy is complete and with relatively minor restoration. Hunt 223; Henrey 155; Nissen 698; STC 11751.

(12,4 x 7,4 cm, bzw. 11,9 x 6,6 cm; Buchblock: 1,8 cm) 12°. Bérard S. 63 f. ("Cet historien a été imprimé plusieur fois par les Elzévirs sous la date de 1633. Celle de ces impressions qu'on regarde comme la première, et qui est la plus recherchée, se reconnait à ce qu'elle contient 364 pages sans l'index, et à ce que la figure qui représente le temple de Jupiter Ammon se trouve à la page 81; de plus les pages ont 35 lignes. Dans les réimpressions, le temple de Jupiter ne se trouve pas à la même page, le nombre des lignes est plus considérable, et conséquemment celui des pages est moins. Ces éditions sont dédiées par Bon. et Abr. Elzévir à Constantin Hugens; la dédicace est suivie de Testimonia, qui le sont eux-mêmes d'un avis au lecteur; et après le texte de Quinte-Curce sont des corrections de Janus Rutgersius, par qui l'édition a été soignée. Il existe une réimpression de cet auteur sous la date de 1660; mais, quoique faite par les Elzévirs, elle n'est ni belle ni recherchée. L'édition originale qui vient d'être indiquée est rare, et se trouve sur-tout difficilement en bon état."). Pieters 126 auf S. 110 f. ("Il y a trois éditions sous cette date.

Several editions give this publishing information and date; this is one of the few that seem actually to have been printed in 1633 as opposed to 1640 or later. The Constitutions and Canons Ecclesiastical was an assemblage of rulings given equal force with the canon law, although the rulings themselves were not based on canon law.

      1633. First Edition . DONNE, John. Poems, By J.D. With Elegies on the Authors Death. London: M.F. [Miles Fletcher] for John Marriot, 1633. Small quarto, period-style full burgundy morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spine and covers, raised bands, black morocco spine label, marbled endpapers. $48,000.First edition of the collected poems of the greatest of the metaphysical poets, with “Epistle” leaves, often lacking. Beautifully bound in period-style elaborately gilt-decorated morocco.Although his poetry was circulated in small bundles of manuscript copies among the cultured circles of Elizabethan and Jacobean society, Donne deliberately kept most of it out of print, fearing to tarnish his reputation in the religious establishment. Thus almost none of his poetry appeared in print during his lifetime. ""The first editors of Donne's poetry divided his work into about a dozen groupings. The Songs and Sonnets which open the volume are generally amorous in theme; the Divine Poems, which close it, are described in their title… Early scholars took for granted that all the bawdy, cynical and lecherous poems were written by young Jack Donne, while all the somber, penitent, devotional poems were written by the godly divine. The more we learn about the matter, the less this easy division seems to stand up… The poetry of Donne represents a sharp break with that written by his predecessors and most of his contemporaries. Whether he writes of love or devotion, Donne's particular blend of wit and seriousness, of intense feeling, darting thought, and vast erudition, creates a fascination quite beyond the reach of easier styles and less strenuous minds"" (Adams). This edition is ""the first collected edition of Donne's poems, derived according to current scholarly thinking from manuscript sources in direct descent from the author's papers. It has been the basis of all scholarly editions since then, including the Grolier Club edition of 1895"" (Pirie 81). This copy with page 273 (Nn1) in the uncorrected state (without running title and with 35 lines of text), and with mispaginations as in Pforzheimer. Bound with ""Epistle"" (A3-A4), rarely found, and with ""Printer to the Understanders"" and ""Hexastichon Bibliopolae""; bound without first and final blank leaves only, text complete. Several lines in the Satyres on pages 330, 331 and 341, originally containing lines offensive to the king and church, are left blank. Donne bibliographer Sir Geoffrey Keynes concludes that various corrections in the text do not differentiate earlier from later states, but were random in the preparation of the text. Keynes 78. STC 7045. Grolier 100 25. Pforzheimer 296. Hayward 54. A few minor smudges to three leaves, Ss3-Tt, remaining text generally quite clean. A few borders just shaved along upper margin, not touching running titles, with generous lower and outer margins. Period-style binding fine. A beautiful and desirable copy.

        The Herball or Generall Historie of Plantes.

      London: printed by Adam Islip, Joice Norton and Richard Whitakers,, 1633. Very much Enlarged and Amended by Thomas Johnson Citizen and Apothecarye of London. Folio (350 x 230 mm). 18th-century russia, green morocco label to spine, compartments, raised bands, and boards elaborately decorated in gilt, marbled endpapers, edges gilt. Engraved vignette title page by John Payne, 2,766 woodcut illustrations. 2 bookplates, one of Chillingham Castle, to front pastedown, bookseller's ticket to front pastedown, shelfmark to front free endpaper. Spine ends and joints lightly rubbed, a few neat ink annotations to contents, occasional minor splits and punctures to fore edges and infrequent foxing to contents, an excellent copy. First edition of Johnson's enlarged version of the herbalist's major work, first published in 1597. Thomas Johnson (c. 1595-1644), the London apothecary who was already a botanical writer of some note by 1633, sensibly marked his additions and major alterations to the first edition, making it possible to distinguish the revisions from the original. His edition brought a new and more scholarly focus to Gerard's Herball; it was greatly esteemed, was reprinted in 1636, and became more and more expensive throughout the following centuries. It is extensively illustrated and Johnson drew several of the diagrams himself. The woodcuts included in the first edition were printed from wood-blocks obtained from Frankfurt which had been used to illustrate the Eicones plantarum of Taberaemmontanus (1590), but Johnson supplemented these with superior illustrations from the stock of Antwerp's famous printer Plantin. "Gerard contributed greatly towards the advancement of the knowledge of plants in England, and in his Herball he described and illustrated several hundreds of our native flowering plants, including about 182 which were additional to those recorded in earlier works" (Henrey, p. 47). This copy once belonged to the library at Chillingham Castle, the 12th-century home of the Wakefield family.

Collated and complete but for the folding letterpress explanation of the emblematic title page ('Draught of the Frontispi[e]ce'), which often seems wanting. Wither to Prior 67. Church Library 192. Newberry (Courtesy Books) 207. ESTC Citation No. S104637. Near Fine ¶ One of the crucial conduct books of the 17th century for the rising gentry (first published in 1630), copies of which arrived in colonial America with the earliest settlers, describing the attributes of an English Gentleman in eight categories (as depicted on the emblematic title page): youth, disposition, education, vocation, recreation, acquaintance, moderation, and perfection. Known to earlier ages as a poet and author of topographical writings "whose rollicking style prefigures the picaresque novel of the eighteenth century," Brathwaite has recently "come to be most commonly associated with the lengthy conduct books he wrote in the 1630s: The English Gentleman (1630) and The English Gentlewoman (1631), both of which went through several editions and expansions in his lifetime. Both texts have become important documents for social historians and for those interested in cultural practice." (ODNB) N. B.

      Chez Martin Collet. New edition, reprint of the first edition in ten books published in 1621; illustrated with a portrait by Leonardo Gautier and a large sticker with the royal arms. Title page in red and black. Printing on thin paper. Half time level. Back tooled raised. Part of title in red morocco. Head cap threadbare. Upper joint split in mind. Friction on the boards. Corners bumped. Encyclopedic work and very famous, France's research differ among all works of this kind by its radical novelty. Pasquier can be considered the father of modern history, the nascent history as a discipline and then away from the legend and literature. Chapter VII, very different from the others because those are attached to research on ancient France, s' interested in the formation of the French language; part is devoted to the Pleiades, which Pasquier was a member. Chapter VI was already involved in the origin of French poetry. "High antiques single Monument, the seArches paper have by their variety and boldness, all that could claim a scholar of the sixteenth century."

        Le commentaire royal ou l'histoire des yncas, roys du Peru

      First French translation by Jean Baudoin from the original in Spanish published in 1609 in Lisbon. This translation only concerns the first part of the royal Comment, the second apparently never been translated. The frontispiece is in the upper Peruvian city, probably Cuzco, which is represented in a procession celebrating the various forces of nature. In the lower part, two designated Incas Manco Capac and Mama Ocllo frame the title and overcome two thumbnails representing one side of the jewels and the other a caravel. The board is usually signed ML (here L. was cleared) for Michel Lasne, French engraver and draftsman who was particular student of Rubens.Bound in full vellum, back three nerves decorated the head of a title manuscript pen, corners very lightly bumped. Waterstains small head and tail of the padding on the entire structure, gallery to between 867-977 pages 1269-1286 and slightly affecting places numbering notebooks but not the text.The frontispiece of the text summarizes the issues by showing the richness of a land conquered by the Spanish while highlighting the outstanding figures of Peruvian history. Indeed, the man left, Manco Capac is traditionally considered the first emperor of the Incas in Cuzco; Mama Ocllo would, in turn, his wife. By placing the head of his work both mythical figures of the founding of the Inca civilization, Garcilaso de la Vega (1539-1616) affirms its willingness to go back to the almost mythological origins of the Peruvian people. Itself illegitimate child of a conquistador and an Inca princess after the line Capac, raised in two different cultures, the Vega offers a history of the Incas before and during the Spanish conquest, while stressing its privileged position as a direct witness of the events. As he points out in his address to the reader, the historians who preceded him "have obscurely Traitté [es]" certain things he considers essential to understand the history of Peru. On the contrary, he "native of Peru, and perfectly instructed in the language of the Court, who spoke of his time in Cuzco, where he spent the best part of his age" has also the advantage of practicing history methodological and serious manner ( "in doubtful matters, he never provides anything"). Above all, this is the time for a single testimony on Peruvian history to the extent that the author does not privilege a Eurocentric vision, unlike his contemporaries, but regularly takes as through the eyes of the Indians concerned their own history. The fact remains that his book is still used as a reference source by historians of Latin America.French Edition of a major text on the history of the Inca civilization. Chez Augustin Courbé à Paris 1633 in-4 (16x23cm) (2f.) (44p.) 1319pp. (32p.) (1f.) relié
