        Le Grandi Miserie della Guerra - La fucilazione

      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 of the pictorial field that promotes a scanning mode of viewing. Moreover, the text below the image, also oriented horizontally, enforces this directional viewing as the eye moves across the printed sheet from left to right. The broad, full landscape pictured in each image draws attention to the general actions of a large number of people as opposed to a few detailed figures. The landscapes and the people within them bear no obvious markers of national specificity or identity. In fact, the lack of these kinds of referents allows the print series to examine the nature of warfare in general, without recourse to the sorts of polemic questions normally taken up by propagandistic images from the period Except the titlepage, each plate is accompanied by six lines of verse, in the form of three rhyming couplets, attribued to Michel de Marolles, Abbé de Villeloin. It seems reasonable since the Abbé was a prolific poet and print collector, who owned, in fact, some 1648 prints by Callot. The series begins with three plates depicting war in the narrow sense of the word: the title page, which shows the emblems of war, the "Enlisting of the Troops", and "The Battle". The next five print, 4 - 8, show show crimes committed by soldiers: the pillage of an inn, of an house, of a cloister, of a village, and attack on travelers. The next print, numbered 9, illustrates the capture of the soldier - marauders. It is followed by five prints, 10 - 14, showing the punishments of these soldiers: by strappado, hanging, firing squad, pyre, and wheel. Three prints, 15 - 17, illustrating misfortunes of soldiers come next: sick and wounded refuge, dying on the road, and a vengeful attack by peasants. The last print, 18, showing the distribution of awards to soldiers. Callot's prints are characterized by clear daylight, wide - angle perspective, meticulous drawing, and figures who display little emotion.

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.

        The English schoole-master: teaching all his schollers, of what age soever, the most easie, short, and perfect order of distinct reading, and true writing our English tongue ... the twentieth time imprinted, with certain copies to write by, at the end of this booke added

      London: printed for the Company of Stationers, 1633. A famous school-book, and legendarily rare. This edition unrecorded. "I profess to teach thee, that art utterly ignorant, to read perfectly, to write truely, and with judgement to understand the reason of our English-tongue with great expedition, ease and pleasure. " Small 4to, pp. [8], 88; 18th century vellum-backed marbled boards, manuscript title on spine; mild dampstain in the top third of the first several leaves, otherwise an excellent copy. Edmunde Coote was born in Essex, and became master of King Edward's VI Free School, Bury St. Edmunds, in 1596. This was the same year he published The English Schoole-Maister which was reprinted no less than 65 times, up until 1737. "Its determinedly logical and straightforward approach to the teaching of the English language [endeared] the work to generations of pedagogues and their pupils. Coote's claim on the title page that "he which hath this booke onely, needeth to buy no other to make him fit, from his letters unto the Grammar-schoole, for an apprentise, or any other his private use, so farre as concerneth English" and his subsequent insistance that the work was aimed "not onely for children" displays a broader educational vision to inculcate a keener awareness of their native tongue in Britons of all ages and most educational backgrounds" (Macclesfield, 3929). Nor were Coote's lexicographical skills inconsiderable. At the back of the book is a 20-page double column glossary of English words, most, but not all, with brief definitions. A number of words in Coote's index antedate the earliest OED citations. This edition is unrecorded, and all editions are certifiably rare. Of the 65-odd editions known, only 35 are recorded by Alston; and STC and Wing collectively locate only 27 editions. None of those located by Alston, STC, or Wing are present in more than three locations, and for the most part they are known by single copies only -- and many of these defective. Not in STC, Alston, OCLC, ESTC, or COPAC. Michael, Early Textbooks of English, no. 2 (citing the first edition).

        The Kings Maiesties declaration to his subjects, concerning lawfull sports to bee used.

      4to., woodcut device on title-page, large woodcut royal arms on verso, woodcut head and tail pieces, (4) 17 (1)pp., with the first leaf A1 (blank except for signature) bound in at the end, final text leaf with part of blank margin cut away (not affecting printed surface), wanting the final blank, a few minor stains and rust marks, near-contemporary ms annotation in ink (see note* below) and ownership signature of "Sam. Ware", with the 19th century armorial bookplates of Richard Clark Esqr. Chamberlain of London (1739-1831) and of William Henry Drummond, 9th Viscount Strathallan (1810-1886), bound, presumably for Richard Clark, in late 18th or early 19th century half russia gilt. A good copy wanting only the final blank. The Declaration of Sports (also known as the Book of Sports) was a declaration of James I of England issued in 1617 listing the sports and recreations that were permitted on Sundays and other holy days. It was originally issued in consultation with Thomas Morton, bishop of Chester, to resolve a dispute in Lancashire between the Puritans and the gentry (many of whom were Roman Catholics). The initial declaration was just for Lancashire, but in 1618, James made the declaration national. The 1618 declaration has largely the same main text as the 1617 version, but with an additional paragraph at the beginning explaining that the king has decided to make the declaration applicable to the whole of England. The declaration listed archery, dancing, "leaping, vaulting, or any other such harmless recreation" as permissible sports, together with "May-games, Whitsun-ales and Morris-dances, and the setting up of May-poles". Also allowed: ?women shall have leave to carry rushes to the church for the decorating of it, according to their old custom.? Amongst the activities that were prohibited were bear- and bull-baiting, "interludes" and bowling. On the one hand, the declaration rebuked Puritans and other "precise persons", and was issued to counteract the growing Puritan calls for strict abstinence on the Christian Sabbath (Sabbatarianism). On the other, it condemned Catholics and others who did not attend church services in their parish, as the declaration specified that only people who had first attended divine service were entitled to participate in recreations afterward. The declaration was reissued by Charles I on 18 October 1633, as The King's Majesty's declaration to his subjects concerning lawful sports to be used. It was claimed by William Prynne that the new declaration was written by Charles' new Archbishop of Canterbury, William Laud, but Laud denied this and there is only evidence that he supported and facilitated the reissue. Moreover, the 1633 declaration has the same main text as the 1617 and 1618 declarations of King James, with the primary differences an additional introduction and conclusion adding wakes and ales (countryside festivals) to the list of sanctioned recreations. Charles ordered that any minister who refused to read it would be deprived of position. As the Puritans gained power in Parliament in the lead-up to the English Civil War, hostility to the Book of Sports grew. Attempts to enforce the declaration came to an end with the fall of Archbishop Laud in 1640, and Parliament ordered the book publicly burned in 1643, two years before Laud was executed." [Cautiously borrowed from Wikipedia]. * The ms note at the foot of the title page reads: "These bookes were burnt at London by ye hand of ye common ha[ng]man by authority of ye Parliament 1641". This is really quite a remarkable document. Not only does it criticize "Papists and Puritanes", it encourages working people to enjoy Sunday afternoon recreation - provided, of course, they have been to "Divine Service" in the morning. "Our pleasure ..... is, that after the end of Divine service, our good people be not disturbed, letted, or discouraged from any lawful recreation .....". Sunday afternoon was to be identified as a time of relaxation and physical exercise for the working man.

        The text of the New Testament of Iesus Christ, translated out of the vulgar Latine by the Papists of the traiterous Seminarie at Rhemes ... Whereunto is added the translation out of the original Greeke, commonly used in the Church of England.

      London: Pr. by Augustine Mathewes on[e] of the assignes of Hester Ogden Folio (33.3 cm, 13.25"). Frontis., engr. t.-p., [58], 912, [18], 25, [1], 206, [2], 17, [1 (blank)] pp.. 1633 When the Jesuit scholars at Rheims succeeded in printing their Catholic translation of the New Testament into English (first edition, 1582), the event affected various English Protestant scholars in different ways: Some were offended or outraged, others intrigued, and yet others spurred to action. William Fulke, of Pembroke College, Cambridge, was among those offended, outraged, and spurred: In 1589 he produced the first edition of his work attempting to refute the Rheims New Testament. His approach, however — which was to print the Rheims NT in parallel columns with the Bishops' NT (the then accepted version of the Church of England), supplying accompanying notes and explanations — had unforeseen consequences. As Darlow and Moule comment, "by printing the Rheims Testament in full, side by side with the Bishops' version, [Fulke] secured for the former a publicity which it would not otherwise have obtained, and was indirectly responsible for the marked influence which Rheims exerted on the Bible of 1611." Alan Thomas elaborates by observing that "many a dignified or felicitous phrase was silently lifted by the editors of King James's Version, and thus passed into the language" (Great Books and Book Collectors, p. 108). This is the fourth edition, "wherein are many grosse absurdities corrected." A portrait of William Fulke precedes the engraved title-page, both done by William Marshall.

        The text of the New Testament of Iesus Christ, translated out of the vulgar Latine by the Papists of the traiterous Seminarie at Rhemes ... Whereunto is added the translation out of the original Greeke, commonly used in the Church of England.

      London: Pr. by Augustine Mathewes on[e] of the assignes of Hester Ogden Folio (33.3 cm, 13.25"). Frontis., engr. t.-p., [58], 912, [18], 25, [1], 206, [2], 17, [1 (blank)] pp.. 1633 When the Jesuit scholars at Rheims succeeded in printing their Catholic translation of the New Testament into English (first edition, 1582), the event affected various English Protestant scholars in different ways: Some were offended or outraged, others intrigued, and yet others spurred to action. William Fulke, of Pembroke College, Cambridge, was among those offended, outraged, and spurred: In 1589 he produced the first edition of his work attempting to refute the Rheims New Testament. His approach, however — which was to print the Rheims NT in parallel columns with the Bishops' NT (the then accepted version of the Church of England), supplying accompanying notes and explanations — had unforeseen consequences. As Darlow and Moule comment, "by printing the Rheims Testament in full, side by side with the Bishops' version, [Fulke] secured for the former a publicity which it would not otherwise have obtained, and was indirectly responsible for the marked influence which Rheims exerted on the Bible of 1611." Alan Thomas elaborates by observing that "many a dignified or felicitous phrase was silently lifted by the editors of King James's Version, and thus passed into the language" (Great Books and Book Collectors, p. 108). This is the fourth edition, "wherein are many grosse absurdities corrected." A portrait of William Fulke precedes the engraved title-page, both done by William Marshall. The Biblical text is followed (as issued) by Fulke's Defense of the Sincere and True Translation of the Holy Scriptures into the English Tongue, against the Manifold Cavils, Frivolous Quarrels, and Impudent Slanders of Gregorie Martin. Contemporary mottled calf, covers framed and panelled in gilt double fillets with gilt-stamped corner fleurons, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label, all edges gilt; binding rubbed, leather moderately acid-pitted, joints cracked, rectangle of leather lost at upper inner corner of front cover.

Edition originale de ce rare traité de médecine et d'alchimie rédigé par David de Planis Campy (1589-1644), médecin et chirurgien du roi Louis XIII. L'auteur, adepte des travaux de Paracelse (1493-1541), contribua à la chrysothérapie, en proposant un remède à base d'or pour guérir certaines maladies. Il fut aussi un défenseur de l'or potable, élixir toxique à base d'or dissout dans de l'eau, très en vogue à la Renaissance.

      Hieronymus Verdussen, Antwerp 1633 - 308 x 98 mm. (12 1/8 x 3 7/8"). [126] leaves. Contemporary sprinkled sheep, raised bands, spine attractively gilt in compartments with floral lozenge centerpiece and volute cornerpieces, maroon morocco label. WITH 3,370 WOODCUTS depicting both sides of 1,685 coins in their actual size. Minor rubbing to joints and extremities, faint stains to pastedowns (from glue?), other trivial defects internally, but AN UNUSUALLY FINE COPY, the binding with only negligible wear, and the text quite clean and fresh. Printed on thick, high quality paper, this compendium of the coins in use in Europe during the 17th century is an excellent artifact of commerce in the Dutch Golden Age, when the Netherlands dominated trade in Europe as the most prosperous nation of the era. Our volume was printed in Antwerp, a major commercial center, and was intended for use by merchants, bankers, and money changers, all of whom needed to determine the legitimacy and value of the multitude of currencies then in circulation. Cities, duchies, principalities, dioceses, and other bodies issued their own coinage in addition to that minted by heads of state and the Holy Roman Emperor, and as leaders of these governments changed, so did the money. In short, it was nightmarishly complex for anyone conducting commerce that went beyond bartering, and the multinational trade of the Dutch presented a particular challenge. The present guide illustrates both sides of each coin, depicted in its actual size and sometimes accompanied by notations of weight and metallic content. The unusual dimensions of the book--which make the volume of interest even apart from its content--represent the size and shape of a ledger, which would have been carried by a merchant or banker in the pocket of a robe. While it seems unlikely that the present volume is unique in its content, this kind of book seems not to have been widely printed. In any case, ours appears to be the only edition under this or any similar title. It is uncommonly seen in the marketplace, and as a heavily consulted book, it is almost always found in poor condition.

        HISTRIO-MASTIX. THE PLAYERS SCOURGE, OR, ACTORS TRAGÆDIE

      London: Printed by E. A. and W. I. for Michael Sparke, 1633. FIRST EDITION, Second Issue, as virtually always (with "Errataes" on ***4v) y. The Puritan divine William Prynne (1600-69) loosed his moral lightning upon the theater of his time in the present diatribe, a work that could not have been more unrestrained nor more ill-timed. This was no precision ideological sortie, but an unbridled surfeit of castigation. In the words of the Norton Anthology of English Literature, "in this passionate . . . tirade of over 1,000 pages larded with authorities in the text and margins--classical philosophers, Church Fathers, Protestant theologians--Prynne denounced stage plays, cross-dressed male actors, court masques, mixed dancing in masques and everywhere else, maypoles, wakes and other rural festivals, country sports on the sabbath, Laudian ritual, stained-glass windows and much more, staking out the most extreme Puritan position on traditional recreations at court and in the countryside." Prynne was also outraged by the favor shown to Shakespeare by printers, ranting, "Shackpeers Plaies are printed in the best Crowne paper, far better than most Bibles." The book would have attracted much less attention if it hadn't contained a number of stories of rulers and magistrates whose support of, or participation in, theatrical productions seemed to bring about their demise. It happened that Charles and his queen, Henrietta Maria, often danced in court masques, and Prynne's allusions to "scurrilous amorous pastorals" and to female actors as "notorious whores" struck way too close to the royal home. As a consequence, our author was imprisoned for life, eventually stripped of his academic credentials, disbarred, fined £5,000, placed in the pillory at Westminster and Cheapside, forced to watch his books being publicly burned (the first English books to go up in flames this way), and relieved of a portion of his ears. (This was before freedom of the press.) Like its author, this item (unlike the present copy) is almost always found in wretched condition.. 198 x 140 mm. (7 3/4 x 5 1/2"). 17 p.l., 512 pp., 513-568 leaves, 545-582, [2] blank, 831-1,006 pp., [20] leaves (obviously erratic numbering, but complete). FIRST EDITION, Second Issue, as virtually always (with "Errataes" on ***4v). Contemporary sprinkled calf, recently resewn and rebacked by Courtland Benson. Pforzheimer III, 809; STC 20464; Brunet IV, 618; Graesse V, 468. First few leaves with faint, inoffensive stain at lower inner margin, otherwise QUITE A FINE COPY, with only trivial imperfections--the expertly restored binding unworn, and the text consistently fresh, almost entirely clean, and with ample margins.

Ståtligt mörkbrunt marokängbd med upphöjda bind, rikt guldornerad rygg, rik ramdekor i guld på pärmarna, kantförgyllning, breda inre förgyllda denteller samt sannolikt gammalt helt guldsnitt (Hedberg). I svart fodrad och skinnskodd klotkassett. Ryggen blekt och med några små nötningar. Några ark lätt bruntonade, t.ex. registret i början. Något brun- och fuktfläckad, främst i övre marginalen. Några samtida understrykningar i bläck. Bläckfläckar på s. (2-3), 676-77 och 708-09. Utspillt bläck i övre hörnet på s. 538. Rostfläckar på s. 119 och 733, den senare även med ett litet hål. På titelbladets baksida en anteckning: "dono domini de Villebray fr. Ludovicus Poxiensis 1757". Titelbladet med en triangulär svartstpl med hebreiska tecken och en namnteckning på försättsbladet. Ur Gustaf Bernströms bibliotek med hans guldpressade exlibris på främre pärmens insida och hans anteckning "coll. cat." Det tryckta dedikationsbladet till Axel Oxenstierna saknas.. Collijn Sveriges bibliografi 1600-talet 67. Med tryckt dedikation till drottning Kristina. Detta är Gustav II Adolfs svenska fältbibel. Den trycktes i en ny upplaga 1635, även denna gång av J. Marci. På det graverade titelbladet avbildas bland annat en bataljscen med rubriken "bellum domini" och en konung i rustning som kröns av änglar. Han har fötterna på ett benrangel och bär omisskännliga drag av Gustav II Adolf, låt vara i något smärtare gestalt än den verkliga förlagan. Han är flankerad av två mindre avbildningar av Jesu korsfästelse respektive Adam och Eva i paradiset. Under konungen står skrivet "post mortem victor". Karaktären av fältbibel understryks även av andra deviser på titelbladet som "religio defensa" och "libertas Germanica". På s. 290 i sista sidföljden finns "Några böner högnödige/ i thetta krigswesendet/ och jemmerfülla tijd". Eskil Hellman har i "Den svenska bibeln genom tiderna" hävdat att denna bibel "torde vara världens första fältbibel". Ludovicus Poxiensis var klosterbroder i Paris

He was a fervent admirer of Paracelsus and accepted the relationship of the macrocosm and the microcosm and the doctrine of signatures. In this work examining the styles of the hermetic philosophers who treated of alchemy he singles out the Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus as the text in which the secret work of nature is uniquely well expressed.

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.

The Treaty of Madrid, here in the first Lisbon edition (Portugal at this time was controlled by Spain), made peace between Spain and Britain. 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.

        The garden of health: containing the sundry rare and hidden vertues and properties of all kindes of simples and plants. Together with the manner how they are to bee used and applyed in medicine for the health of mans body, against divers diseases and infirmities most common amongst men.

      London: Printed by Thomas Harper 4to in 8s (19 cm; 7.5"). [4] ff., 702 pp., [33] ff.. 1633 Preparing for a trip from England to Virginia or Massachusetts in the 1630s or 40s, one would have been well advised to make sure someone in the party was bringing a copy of Langham's work. Once in America, one would have made good use of the herbal remedies for some of the more common ailments the newly arrived would have suffered, and one would have had greater access to the "exotic" American sarsaparilla and guaiacum that Langham discusses. This precursor to the "Physician's Desk Reference" is a practical compendium of medicinal and other plants arranged alphabetically from "acacia" to "wormwood" with a strong emphasis on plants that "can be gotten without any cost or labour, the most of them being such as grow in most places and are common among us" (folio [2]). Langham's organization is this: "He devoted a chapter to each plant, describing its parts and their uses, the different processes such as distillation that could be applied to it, and how the resulting products could be used for particular diseases. To every item of information he added a number and at the end of the chapter there is an index or table of conditions with the numbers that were in the main text. The reader can thus see at a glance that one herb could be used in a wide variety of conditions, and whether a specific illness could be helped by a particular drug" (Wear, pp. 82–83). This is the second edition, "corrected and amended," the first having appeared in 1597. We are sure the reading public, which was sufficient to support a second edition, would have been helped rather more if the work had had illustrations, but that would have increased the cost of the work dramatically and a => wide audience was sought. The text is printed chiefly in gothic type while the end of chapter "indices" are in roman. This herbal was not printed during a period of good English typography, so the pages are dense with little white space or appreciation for making the text on the page easy on the eye rather than wearying. Contemporary English calf, boards modestly ruled in blind at edges; rebacked in high quality goat. Age-toning or old soiling, especially at the edges of margins and with offsetting from binding to title-page; some light marginal waterstaining especially at end in index; some short tears with last leaves' edges chopped and final two with edges strengthened. => Overall, an unsophisticated copy that has been spared being washed, pressed, and gussied up!

L'édit de 1627 décréta que 45 Vaisseaux de ligne, non compris les pataches et autres navires légers, devraient constituer l'effectif de la flotte. Pour alimenter le budget de la marine qui passa de 1.478.000 livres en 1626 à 2.762.000 en 1627 et 2.572.000 livres en 1629 et trouver dès 1627 les 3 millions de livres nécessaires aux nouvelles constructions navales et aux achats d'urgence de vaisseaux, notamment à l'étranger, Richelieu dût recourir aux expédients habituels (création d'offices, taxes, ventes de biens.). C'est de cette période que date l'acquisition en Hollande du nouveau Vaisseau amiral le « Saint-Louis » que le père Fournier représenta sur la célèbre planche de son « Hydrographie » (voir cet ouvrage). Le onzième discours de cet ouvrage fait l'historique des glorieux faits d'armes de la marine française et montre la nécessité d'avoir une marine importante à l'image des autres pays qui ont acquis dans l'histoire leur puissance grâce à leur marine.
