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.

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.

        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.

        Cochin-China: Containing many admirable Rarities and Singularities of that Countrey. Extracted out of an Italian Relation, lately presented to the Pope, by Christophoro Barri, that lived certaine years there

      London: Robert Raworth for Richard Clutterbuck, 1633. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Tastefully bound in ruled red morocco, interior gilt dentelles; title-page dusty and trimmed at upper & outer margins; repaired corner of prelims. Otherwise very good. Rare first edition of the first book on Vietnam in English, an eyewitness account of the commerce, government and cultural life of Cochin-China (central Vietnam) written by the Jesuit missionary Cristoforo Borri and first published in Italian in 1631.Borri begins by marking the kingdom's boundaries, identifying it as a narrow strip of land between Laos and the South China Sea, bordered to the north by Tongking and to the south by Champa. A discussion of the kingdom's fertile land and rich natural resources follows, emphasizing the abundance of fruits, nuts, rice, fish, textiles, domestic stock, and "all other things requisite for the entertainement of a man's life." Silk is produced in such quantities that "the baser sort of people wear it dayly." Gold and silver mines abound, and "the Wood and Timber of this countrey is the best of all the world." Having piqued his readers' curiosity, the author goes on to describe Cochin-China's vibrant commercial climate, declaring it free of the red tape and bureaucratic hostility that so often greeted European traders in East Asia.Borri's 1631 Relazione, a Jesuit missions letter directed at his Catholic superiors and lay readers, was already unusual among works in its genre for devoting a substantial part exclusively to non-religious content. Ashley, the translator, executed further changes of his own in order to render the present work more attractive to Protestant business interests-most notably by omitting the part where Borri testified to the struggle and success of his Jesuit missions (particularly the conversion of Pulucambi province). The translation also cheerfully elides two disastrous episodes in recent European trade with Cochin-China: the 1601 massacre of 23 members of an envoy from the VOC, and a similar massacre in 1613 of the crew of an English trading vessel. This attempt to coax England's notoriously skittish merchants into commerce with Cochin-China is also borne out by Ashley's choice of dedicatee: Maurice Abbot, the newly-elected governor of the British East India Company. According to Pollard and Redgrave, the work's last signature is in 3 rather than 4 because the unsigned title-page was printed as the 4th and final leaf.Cristoforo Borri (1583-1632), a Milanese astronomer, lived in Cochin-China from 1617-1622, where he learned enough of the language to hear confession. By 1633, two years after its first appearance, his Relatione had been translated into French, German, Dutch and English. This is the first copy to appear on the market since 1988 [Christie's sale of John Fleming, 11.08.88].*STC 1504; Lach.III, v. 3, p. 1250-1266; Dror & Taylor, Views of 17th C Vietnam, pp. 66. Not in Löwendahl, who nonetheless records translations in French, German, and Dutch.

Nogle blade svagt fugtkjoldet, enkelte blade med rift, 5 blade fejlpagineret; nogle blade helt rene, nogle let bruneret. De to kobberstukne titelblade til 'Propheterne' og 'Det ny Testamente' er uden margin og formentlig derfor ved den oprindelige indbinding opklæbet på papir i samme størrelse som resten af bladene. Et godt eksemplar med et fantastisk velbevaret ciceleret guldsnit, som formentlig har ligget uberørt hen på en herregård i mange år. Copenhagen: Melchior Martzan & Salomon Sartor 1633.

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

      - Chez Augustin Courbé, à Paris 1633, in-4 (16x23cm), (2f.) (44p.) 1319pp. (32p.) (1f.), relié. - Prima traduzione francese di Jean Baudoin dall'originale in spagnolo pubblicato nel 1609 a Lisbona. Questa traduzione riguarda solo la prima parte del commento reale, il secondo a quanto pare mai stato tradotto. Il frontespizio è nella città peruviana superiore, probabilmente Cuzco, che è rappresentato in un corteo che celebra le diverse forze della natura. Nella parte inferiore, due designati Inca Manco Capac e Mama Ocllo incorniciano il titolo e superare due miniature che rappresentano una parte dei gioielli e l'altro un caravella. La scheda è di solito firmato ML (qui L. è stata autorizzata) per Michel Lasne, incisore e disegnatore francese che era particolare allievo di Rubens. Bound in piena pergamena, indietro di tre nervi decorate la testa di una penna titolo del manoscritto, angoli molto leggermente urtato. Waterstains piccola testa e la coda del imbottitura su tutta la struttura, la galleria di tra 867-977 pagine 1269-1286 e leggermente interessano luoghi di numerazione notebook ma non il testo. Il frontespizio del testo riassume le questioni, mostrando la ricchezza di una terra conquistata dagli spagnoli, mentre evidenziando le figure di spicco della storia peruviana. Infatti, l'uomo ha lasciato, Manco Capac è tradizionalmente considerato il primo imperatore degli Inca in Cuzco; Mama Ocllo sarebbe, a sua volta, la moglie. Posizionando il capo del suo lavoro entrambe le figure mitiche della fondazione della civiltà Inca, Garcilaso de la Vega (1539-1616) afferma la sua volontà di tornare alle origini quasi mitologiche del popolo peruviano. Itself figlio illegittimo di un conquistador e una principessa inca dopo la linea di Capac, cresciuto a due culture diverse, il Vega offre una storia degli Incas, prima e durante la conquista spagnola, pur sottolineando la sua posizione privilegiata come testimone diretto degli eventi. Come fa notare nel suo discorso al lettore, gli storici che lo hanno preceduto "hanno oscuramente Traitté [es]" certe cose che considera essenziale per capire la storia del Perù. Al contrario, egli "nativo del Perù, e perfettamente istruiti nella lingua della Corte, che ha parlato del suo tempo a Cuzco, dove ha trascorso la parte migliore della sua età", ha anche il vantaggio della storia praticare metodologico e modo serio ( "in materia di dubbio, non ha mai offre nulla"). Soprattutto, questo è il momento per una singola testimonianza sulla storia peruviana nella misura in cui l'autore non privilegia una visione eurocentrica, a differenza dei suoi contemporanei, ma prende regolarmente attraverso gli occhi degli indiani interessati la loro storia. Resta il fatto che il suo libro è ancora usato come una fonte di riferimento per gli storici dell'America Latina. French Edition di un importante testo sulla storia della civiltà Inca. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Première traduction française par Jean Baudoin d'après l'originale en espagnol parue en 1609 à Lisbonne. Cette traduction ne concerne que la première partie du Commentaire royal, la seconde n'ayant apparemment jamais été traduite. Le frontispice représente dans la partie supérieure une cité péruvienne, probablement Cuzco, dans laquelle est représentée une procession célébrant les différentes forces de la nature. Dans la partie inférieure, deux Incas désignés comme Manco Capac et Mama Occlo encadrent le titre et surmontent deux vignettes représentant d'un côté des joyaux et de l'autre une caravelle. La planche est signée d'ordinaire M.L. (ici le L. a été effacé) pour Michel Lasne, graveur et dessinateur français qui fut notamment élève de Rubens. Reliure en plein vélin, dos à trois nerfs orné en tête d'un titre manuscrit à la plume, coins très légèrement émoussés. Petites mouillures en tête et en queue de la marge intérieure sur l'ensemble de l'ouvrage, galeries de vers entre les pages 867-977 et 1269-1286 affectant légèrement par endroits la numérotation des cahiers mais pas le corps du texte. Le frontispice résume les enjeux du texte en montrant les richesses d'une terre conquise par les Espagnols tout en mettant en avant des figures marquantes de l'histoire péruvienne. En effet, l'homme à gauche, Manco Capac est traditionnellement considéré comme le premier empereur des Incas à Cuzco ; Mama Occlo aurait été, quant à elle, son épouse. En plaçant en tête de son ouvrage les deux figures mythiques de la fondation de la civilisation inca, Garcilaso de la Vega (1539-1616) affirme sa volonté de remonter aux origines quasiment mythologiques du peuple péruvien. Lui-même enfant naturel d'un conquistador et d'une princesse inca issue de la lignée de Capac, élevé dans deux cultures différentes, de la Vega propose une histoire des Incas avant et pendant la conquête espagnole, tout en soulignant sa position privilégiée en tant que témoin direct des événements. Comme il le souligne dans son adresse au lecteur, les historiens qui l'ont précédé « n'ont qu'obscurément traitté[es] » certaines choses qu'il considère indispensables pour comprendre l'histoire du Pérou. Au contraire, lui, « natif du Peru, & parfaitement instruit en la langue de la Cour, qui se parlait de son temps à Cuzco, où il a passé la meilleure partie de son âge » a en outre pour avantage de pratiquer l'histoire de manière méthodologique et sérieuse (« dans les matières douteuses, il n'assure jamais rien »). Surtout, il s'agit pour l'époque d'un témoignage unique sur l'histoire péruvienne dans la mesure où l'auteur ne privilégie pas une vision eurocentrée, contrairement à ses contemporains, mais prend régulièrement comme biais le regard des indiens porté sur leur propre histoire. Il n'en demeure pas moins que son ouvrage est encore aujourd'hui utilisé comme une source de référence par les historiens de l'Amérique latine. Edition originale française d'un texte majeur sur l'histoire de la civilisation inca.

        De florum cultura libri IV.

      Excudebat Stephanus Paulinus,, Roma, 1633 - In 4°; (10), 522 (ma i.e. 524), (16) pp. con antiporta figurata e 46 belle figure incise nel testo disegnate Incisioni disegnate da Pietro da Cortona, Guido Reni, Andrea Sacchi, incise da Johann Friedrich Greuter e Claude Mellan, raffiguranti allegorie, figure mitologiche associate alla flora, schemi di progettazione di giardini, attrezzi agricoli, diverse specie di fiori e loro composizioni. Un’incisione è disegnata ed incisa da Anna Maria Vaiani. Manca la prima e l’ultima carta bianca. La tav. a pag. 387 proviene probabilmente da altro esemplare anche se sicuramente trattasi di inserimento antico, essendo sbiadita e leggermente corta nel margine in basso. Bella legatura inglese in mezza pelle scura a 4 nervi con titolo, riquadri e filetti in oro nei tasselli del dorso. Piatti foderati con carta coeva. Tagli spruzzati in azzurro. Qualche minima ed ininfluente macchiolina di foxing in poche pagine e per il resto esemplare in buone-ottime condizioni di conservazione. Prima non comune edizione di questo classico di botanica del grande gesuita senese, Giovanni Battista Ferrari. Orientalista, fu per ben ventotto anni professore di Lingua ebraica al Collegio Romano. A Roma fu attivo nella cerchia di intellettuali e artisti radunata attorno a Cassiano dal Pozzo e ai cardinali Antonio e Francesco Barberini. Appassionato di Botanica è noto soprattutto per il trattato Flora, seu De florum cultura lib. 4, pubblicato dapprima in lingua latina nel 1633 e ristampato in traduzione italiana nel 1638. L’opera, dedicata al Cardinale Barberini, è un trattato in quattro libri sui fiori ornamentali e il giardinaggio. L’apparato iconografico è fra i più famosi ed eccelsi in ambito botanico per le bellissime tavole in stile barocco. Scopo dell’opera è la diffusione delle tecniche per la coltivazione dei fiori e delle piante ornamentali, principalmente di quelli esotici, molto ricercati nel XVII secolo (i cosiddetti "fiori pellegrini"). Nel primo libro si introduce all’arte del giardinaggio, dando una panoramica generale sulla coltivazione dei fiori e sulle tecniche principali per un corretto sviluppo delle piante; nel secondo e nel terzo libro si tratta dei fiori pellegrini, mentre il quarto libro è dedicato soprattutto alle decorazioni floreali (una sorta di ikebana europea con tavole di composizioni di grandi vasi di fiori recisi). L’opera è considerato uno dei più celebri trattati di floricultura mai scritti. Prima edizione, in buone-ottime condizioni di conservazione. First edition, good copy. Vinciana, Vol. II, n° 1798, p. 181; Hunt 222; Johnston 184; Nissen BBI 620; Piantanida et al 1799.

        De Droeve Ellendigheden van den Oorlooch seer aerdigh en konstighafgebeeldt door Jaques Callot Loreijns Edelman. [Dutch edition of Callot's most famous suite: "Les Miseres et malheurs de la guerre" (Translates: "The miseries and misfortunes of war") originally published in France in 1633].

      Oblong - 8. 18 original plates (including Frontispiece) with 20 interleaved, blank pages. All plates subtitled in dutch. Hardcover with label in english on front board. Callot's most famous suite, Les Misères et malheurs de la guerre (the miseries and misfortunes of war, 1633), produced following Richelieu's invasion of Lorraine during the Thirty Years War. Oblong Large Octavo. Engraved titlepage in dutch plus 17 plates after Callot by Leon Schenk, numbered 2-18, each plate with 6 lines of verse by l'abbé Michel de Marolles. Plates 3-3/4 x 7-3/4 inches, mounted on larger leaves, titled in french in manuscript-writing. Both contemporary marbled boards cleanly detached (needs repair or new binding. Inside with only minor foxing. The plates clean and fresh. Jacques Callot was a baroque printmaker and draftsman from the Duchy of Lorraine (an independent state on the north-eastern border of France, southwestern border of Germany and overlapping the southern Netherlands). He is an important person in the development of the old master print. He made more than 1,400 etchings that chronicled the life of his period, featuring soldiers, clowns, drunkards, Gypsies, beggars, as well as court life. He also etched many religious and military images, and many prints featured extensive landscapes in their background.His most famous prints are his two series of prints each on "the Miseries and Misfortunes of War". These are known as Les Grandes Misères de la guerre, consisting of 18 prints published during 1633, and the earlier and incomplete Les Petites Misères referring to their sizes, large and small (though even the large set are only about 8 x 13 cm). These images show soldiers pillaging and burning their way through towns, country and convents, before being variously arrested and executed by their superiors, lynched by peasants, or surviving to live as crippled beggars. At the end the generals are rewarded by their monarch. During 1633, the year the larger set was published, Lorraine had been invaded by the French during the Thirty Years' War and Callot's artwork is still noted with Francisco Goya's Los Desastres de la Guerra (The Disasters of War), which was influenced by Callot, as among the most powerful artistic statements of the inhumanity of war.

Its main importance to the New World was its guarantee that British traders could move freely and do business in America and the East Indies, except those parts of the West Indies, Central and South America where the Spanish had settlements. Thus it still kept England out of the Caribbean, but gave free rein to trade with the North American colonies, and for the British to pursue their plantings of colonies in unoccupied parts of the Americas.

        A treatise of the divine promises; in five books.

      Leigh summarizes his study of God's promises this way: "a general description of their nature, kindes, excellency, right use, properties, and the persons to whom they belong," and the "declaration of the covenant it self [sic], the bundle and body of all the promises, and the special promises likewise, which concern a mans [sic] self or others, both temporal, spiritual, and eternal."This third edition is typographically complex in ye good 17th-century style, with a title-page printed in red and black and liberal variation of type-ornament borders, multiple fonts, and decorative initials; the pages are ruled into multiple divisions for presentation of text and various sorts/levels of notes, with the printer occasionally breaking "form" to enhance compactness or clarity. Braces and brackets appear generously, with these tricky-to-set devices being most strikingly deployed in full-page diagrammatic "Tables" of contents, one at the start of each of the five books and the one of the third being actually a => large fold-out. The first edition appeared in 1633 with two more in 1641. Those three and this 1650 are uncommon in commerce with only three of this apparently held in U.S. libraries (Boston Athenaeum, University of Illinois, and Princeton Theological).Leigh (1602-71), a decided puritan, was described by one contemporary as "a man of fiery disposition" and by another as "a cunning man"; in addition to his religious duties he found time and inclination for politics and was elected to Parliament. Provenance: Tim Hide(?), 18th century, has signed the top margin of the title-page; George B. Engle Junior notes on a fly leaf that he bought the book in Boston, MA, March 1881. Later at the Pacific School of Religion (properly released).

        Tes Kaines Diathekes apanta: Novi Testamenti Libri

      Apud [B. and A. Elzevir for] Richardum Whittakerum, bibliopolam, M D C XXXIII, London 1633 - [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. Please contact Christian White at Modernfirsteditions if you would like more information about this book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Decade contenant la Vie et Gestes de Henry le Grand, Roy de France et de Navarre IIII. Du Nom.

Deuxième édition. L'édition originale fut publiée en 1614. « Cet ouvrage finit à la mort du maréchal d'Ancre, qui y est fort mal traité. Les bons serviteurs de la reine n'y sont pas même épargnés, tellement qu'autrefois cela faisait fort rechercher le livre. Les ennemis de Legrain s'intriguèrent pour faire condamner l'ouvrage, mais ils ne purent en venir à bout : cependant il consentit à la suppression de deux cents exemplaires qui restaient encore chez son libraire » (Michaud).

        Certaine Learned and Elegant Workes of the Right Honorable Fulke, Lord Brooke, written in his Youth, and familiar Exercise with Sir Philip Sidney .

      London: Printed by E. P. for Henry Seyle . 1633. - Small folio, pp. [2], 23-82, 298, wanting the preliminary and final blanks, and, as in all known copies, beginning at page 23 because one long poem, A Treatise of Religion, was suppressed; a very good copy in contemporary calf, neatly rebacked, gilt Pegasus device of Heneage Finch, third Earl of Winchilsea (1628-82) on both covers, bookplate of Richard Shuttleworth Streatfield.First edition. This is the definitive printing of the poems and plays of an attractive minor Elizabethan – the 'Servant to Queen Elizabeth, Councillor to King James, Friend to Sir Philip Sidney' (to quote his epitaph). Like Sidney, Greville never published his poetry in his lifetime; and, apart from a few anthologized poems and a pirated edition of Mustapha, these Workes, though written mainly in the 1570s-1590s, are printed here for the first time.In all known copies the text begins at p. 23. The Licenser's entry makes it clear that A Treatise of Religion originally stood first in the manuscript; and Malone plausibly suggested that its anti-prelatical tenor led to censorship by Archbishop Laud. This poem and A Treatise of Monarchy were eventually published in Fulke Greville's Remains (1670), completing the verse canon.As issued, the volume begins with three long reflective poems ('Of Humane Learning', 'Upon Fame and Honour', and 'Of Warres'), followed by the verse dramas Alaham and Mustapha, and the irregular 'sonnet' sequence 'Caelica' comprising 109 sonnets and other short poems. There are a few selected letters at the end.'Oh wearisome Condition of Humanity', Greville's most famous poem, forms the final chorus to Mustapha. Like Alaham, Mustapha was 'no Plaie for the Stage', but a Senecan examination of power, tyranny, ambition, and deceit. Greville wrote one other tragedy in the same vein, Antonie and Cleopatra, but thought it prudent to destroy the manuscript in about 1601, 'the Earle of Essex then falling'.STC 12361; Greg III, 1068-9; Pforzheimer 437; Hayward 68.
