        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!

      Lisbon: Antonio Aluarez, 1633.. 20 leaves, plus errata. Vignette on titlepage. Modern three-quarter morocco and marbled boards. Later 17th-century ownership signature on titlepage. Very good. 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. ^An important treaty, with substantial economic consequences. Scarce. Not in EUROPEAN AMERICANA nor on OCLC. DAVENPORT 35. PALAU 43236.

P. for Henry Seyle 1633. - Small 4to., pp. [4], 44, with the initial blank; small stain to inner margin of first gathering, else a very good copy in modern boards, bookplate of the Welsh industrialist Thomas Edward Watson.Second edition, published in the same year as the first, with the omission of the licences to print but adding twenty-three new lines to Problem I, 'Why have Bastards best Fortune' ('Because Fortune herself is a Whore '), a Problem which, Keynes remarks, 'was particularly insulting to the Court'.'Donne's Juvenilia are clever and entertaining trifles, most of which were probably written before or soon after 1600 during his youth Owing to their rather free nature they could not be published during Donne's lifetime, but in 1632, shortly after his death, part of them was licensed by Sir Henry Herbert It is not known through what channels the publisher, Henry Seyle, obtained possession of the text, which had been circulating for over thirty years in a number of manuscripts' (Keynes). In a letter of 1600, probably to Sir Henry Wotton, Donne himself refers to their 'lightnes' for 'they were made rather to deceive tyme than her daughthr truth they are but swaggerers'. Keynes notes that 'the second edition is now more uncommon than the first'. STC 7044; Keynes 44. Language: English

        Nova Virginiae Tabula

      Amsterdam: Henry Hondius, 1633. Engraving with contemporary hand-colouring. French text. Some minor browning and toning. Skilful repairs to left and right margins. "The first and most important derivative of John Smith's map of Virginia, originally published in 1612" (Burden) This is derivative 5, state 1, bearing the imprint of Henricus Hondius. Originally issued by Jodocus Hondius from 1618-1629, the map closely follows State 1 of Smith's Virginia of 1612, without longitude and the various names added in Smith's later states. Upon Hondius's death in 1629, Blaeu purchased the plates and the imprint was thereafter changed to reflect the new ownership. Blaeu used the map first in his Atlantic Appendix (1630) and afterwards in virtually every edition of his atlas. This example was issued with Mercator's L'Appendice de l'Atlas , Amsterdam, 1633. "Through the purchase of this plate by William Jansz. Blaeu in 1629 and its subsequent extensive publication for forty-two years, word of the English in Virginia became known throughout Europe. It is slightly larger than its parent, although more attractively engraved. Taken from the first state of Smith, it continues the coastlines where the former left them vague." (Burden 193) The map includes the council scene of Chief Powhatan in the upper left and the British Royal Coat of Arms in the upper right. The British were the first to establish a successful colony on the North American coast in defiance of the Spanish, who felt legally entitled to it, and this represents the moment when English speaking people began to prevail in America.

        Novus Orbis seu descriptionis Indiae Occidentalis libri XVIII .... Novis tabulis geographicis et variis animantium, plantarum fructuumque iconibus illustrati

      Leiden: Elzevier, 1633. Folio. (13 3/16 x 8 5/8 inches). Half-title. Engraved title with elaborate emblematic and architectonic border, 14 double-page engraved maps by Hessel Gerritsz, 68 woodcut illustrations. Contemporary calf, covers with double-fillet border in blind, spine in seven compartments with raised bands, the bands flanked by pairs of fillets in blind, painted figure '4' carefully painted in an attractive early calligraphic hand in white paint in the uppermost compartment, red-stained edges, expert restoration to head and foot of the spine, modern cloth chemise, modern red morocco-backed cloth slipcase, lettered in gilt on the spine Provenance: Early annotations in an unidentified hand An exceptional copy of the first Latin edition of 'arguably the finest description of the Americas published in the seventeenth century' (Burden), the maps include the first to use the names Manhattan, New Amsterdam (for New York) and Massachusetts, and 'one of the foundation maps of Canada' (Burden) This work is one of the most important 17th-century New World histories. It is a cornucopia of early knowledge of the Americas and was compiled by de Laet, a director of the newly formed Dutch West India Company with access to all the latest geographic knowledge. Pierre Francois Xavier de Charlevoix (1682-1761,) writing in the 18th century, noted that the work as a whole 'is full of the most excellent and curious details of the natural history, and the character, manners, and customs of the American aborigines, derived from the reports of the European mission establishments in America.' The present first edition in Latin was preceded by two editions in Dutch (the first of which was published in 1625). De Laet continued to add to and improve the work throughout his lifetime: the present edition contains 14 maps as opposed to the 10 in the 1625 edition and the text has been considerably expanded. This copy is unusual in two respects: firstly its outstanding condition, and secondly for the early, certainly 17th century, annotations by an English-speaking owner who appears to have had some contact with the Americas, or, at least, with the products of the region. The front free endpaper includes an accomplished small ink drawing of a plant labelled 'Cassavi' with a two-line note beside it 'Mammosaporta / a Jamaica fruite;' the second blank includes a reference to an important scientific work by Mario Bettino first published in 1645 ('Marii Bettini Apiarium Mathematicum;') the index of the subjects of the woodcuts on the page preceding the first page of the main text includes two references which correctly identify 'a Kinge Crab. novis Anglis' and a pineapple as a 'Queene Pine'. The maps are by Hessel Gerritsz and are some of the very best to appear up to that time. Gerritsz had trained under Willem Blaeu but had been chosen in preference to his old master when the appointment of cartographer to the Dutch West India Company was made. The charming textual illustrations are chiefly of biological or botanical specimens, and are generally surprisingly accurate for their time, and each of the eighteen constituent books is turned over to the consideration of a different region of the New World. The quality of the maps can be gauged from the fact that they served as a prototype for the mapping of America, with a number of them being reused in various later 17th-century atlases. The maps are titled as follows: 1. 'Americae sive Indiae occidentalis tabula generalis' [Burden 229 'The best west coast delineation to date'] 2. 'Maiores minoresque insulae. Hispaniola, Cuba, Lucaiae et Caribes' 3. 'Nova Francia et regiones adiacentes' [Burden 230 'One of the foundation maps of Canada'] 4. 'Nova Anglia, Novum Belgium et Virginia' [Burden 231 'The first [map] to use the names Manhattan and N. Amsterdam. It is also the earliest to use... Massachusets (sic.)'; Cumming 35; Schwartz & Ehrenberg p. 105] 5. 'Florida. et regiones vicinae' [Burden 232 'Its influence was quite considerable'; Cumming 34] 6. 'Nova Hispania, Nova Gallicia, Guatamala' [Burden 215 'The delineations of the coastlines here was the most accurate to date'] 7. 'Tierra Firma item Nuevo Reyno de Granada atque Popayan' 8. 'Peru' 9. 'Chili' 10. 'Provinciae sitae ad fretum Magellanis itemque fretum Le Maire' 11. 'Paraguay, o prov. de rio de la Plata: cum adiacentibus Provinciis, quas vocant Tucuman, et Sta. Cruz de la Sierra' 12.

        De Mari Libero und Paulus Merula´s \"Dissertatio de Maribus\" und Marcus Zuerius Boxhorn´s \"Apologia Pro Navigationibus Hollandorum, Adversus Pontum Heuterum\"

      Lugd. Batavorum (Leiden), ex officina Elzeviriana 1633. Mit einem gestochenen Frontispiz, 308 Seiten 12°, braun mellierte alte Pp mit gedrucktem Rückentitel SEHR SELTENER TITEL IN EINEM SCHÖNEN FESTEN EXEMPLAR mit schönen gestochenen Initialen und herrlichen Kopf- und Schluss-Vignetten sowie einem sauberen alten Bibliotheksstempel. Hugo Grotius war einer der wichtigsten Rechtsgelehrten des 17. Jahrhunderts und galt als ein Wunderkind. Bereits als 12-Jähriger trat er in die Universität Leiden ein und lenkte schon frühzeitig die Aufmerksamkeit des großen J. J. Scaliger auf sich. Er promovierte zum Doktor der Rechte und verfasste 1604 als 21-Jähriger aus Anlass eines Rechtsfalles, bei dem es um das Eigentum an einer portugisischen Galeone ging, die in der Meerenge von Malakka gekapert wurden war, eine Abhandlung mit dem Titel \"De jure praedae\" (\"Über das Recht am Raube\"). Es enthält bereits die Grundgedanken seines späteren Hauptwerkes, blieb aber bis 1868 unveröffentlicht. Lediglich ein Kapitel daraus wurde 1609 zunächst anonym unter dem Titel \"Mare Liberum\" (\"Das freie Meer\") veröffentlicht. Die katholische Kirche indiziert \"Mare liberum\" umgehend, da es die päpstliche Weltordnung untergrub. Grotius formulierte hier einen revolutionären neuen Grundsatz, indem er erklärte, die Meere seien internationale Gewässer und alle Nationen hätten das Recht, sie zur Handelsschifffahrt zu nutzen. 1925 schrieb er binnen eines Jahres sein Meisterwerk \"De jure Belli ac Pacis\" (Über das Kriegs- und Friedensrecht), das ihn in ganz Europa berühmt machte. Dieses Werk, das für die späteren Auffassungen des Völkerrechts grundlegend wurde, war der erste Versuch, außerhalb der Kirche und der heiligen Schrift einen Rechtsgrundsatz aufzustellen und eine Rechtsgrundlage für Gesellschaft und Regierung zu schaffen. Die Unterscheidung zwischen Religion einerseits und Recht und Moralität andereseits ist zwar nicht klar und eindeutig getroffen, aber dessen ungeachtet ist Grotius\' Prinzip eines unwandelbaren Rechts, das Gott ebenso wenig ändern kann wie ein mathematisches Axiom, die erste Formulierung des \"droit naturel\", des Naturrechts, das die großen politischen Theoretiker des 18. Jahrhunderts so stark beschäftigte und das die Grundlage des modernen Völkerrechts ist. Versand D: 5,00 EUR VR 22226, Recht, i

        Instructions for Young Gentlemen

      John Lichfield, Oxford 1633 - ADVICE FOR A GENTLEMAN AT WAR FIRST ENGLISH EDITION. 12mo. pp. (viii) 122 (ii). Roman letter within double ruled line border; errata on recto of last. A very good, clean wide-margined copy in contemporary limp vellum, later vellum superimposed over spine, lacking ties. Acquisition note of Thomas Clifford 1647, 1s 3d, to rear free endpaper. A translation of an untraced original, subtitled "The instructions of Cardinall Sermonetta to his Cousen Petro Caetano, at his first going into Flanders to the Duke of Parma, to serve Philip, King of Spaine," the work comprises a set of instructions to a young nobleman entering military and royal service. It begins with the necessity of maintaining regular communication by writing from every stopping place to both confirm his progress, report upon the state of the war and to find out what is to be done in service to the King. The need for discretion and secrecy in his letters is advised, as well as the keeping of detailed records to eliminate confusion. As well as sending letters of his own, it is vital that he answer fully all missives, using the cypher that he receives. Cardinal Sermonetta advises his cousin to develop a close relationship with the postmaster, rewarding him intermittently for his continued good services so he would remain loyal and work with haste. Petro was evidently sent to Flanders at the desire of his father and was impelled to do his utmost to ensure the satisfaction of the Prince with his service, combining excellence in war and a thorough knowledge of the context in which hostilities had developed. It behooves him to demonstrate honour and an encyclopaedic knowledge of the state of affairs of the nation, topographically and socially as well as militarily. The Cardinal also encourages him to construct a dictionary of the terminology and tactics of warfare for his own use, and to participate as actively as possible in military life. Great emphasis is placed upon acting and speaking appropriately around the royals. The work concludes within a warning to always respect the sanctity of religious establishments, personages and artefacts, before commending him to God. Here, the war in question is the Eighty Years' War, the revolt of the Seventeen Provinces in the Low Countries against the Spanish (Habsburg) Empire. Shortly after the publication of this letter in 1639, Spain sent an Armada to Flanders carrying 20,000 troops to assist in a last large scale attempt to defeat the northern "rebels". The Armada was defeated in the Battle of the Downs, marking the end of Spain as the dominant sea power. Thomas Clifford, in ex libris, may well be the first Baron Clifford of Chudleigh (1630-1673), who probably acquired this work at the appropriate age of seventeen. He went on to distinguish himself in naval battles, including at the end of the Dutch War.

      A[ugustine] M[athewes] for William Sheares, at the Harrow in Britaines Bursse,, London 1633 - EXTREMELY RARE FIRST COLLECTED EDITION FIRST EDITION thus (mixed first and second issues). 8vo. 207 unnumbered leaves. [A] , B-2C?, 2D6, (without last two blanks). Roman letter, some Italic. Grotesque woodcut ornaments on part titles, floriated woodcut initials, typographical headpieces, a ms. list of the plays in early hand on pastedown, small library stamp on front fly. Light age yellowing, minor dust soiling in places, the odd marginal mark or spot. A very good copy in contemporary calf, covers bordered with double blind rule, later morocco label gilt, expert restoration to head and tail of spine and corners, a.e.r. in red morocco box by H. Zucker. Extremely rare first collected edition of the major plays of John Marston, the first issue with the original title pages to each play and one of two signed dramatist's addresses to the reader, with the second issue cancel of the general title page, and with the preliminary epistle left out. "One other edition of Antonio’s revenge appeared during Marston’s lifetime. William Shears printed a collected edition of six of Marston’s plays. This edition exists in two issues. The imprint of the first calls the book ‘The works of Mr. John Marston’: the imprint of the second reads ‘Tragedies and Comedies collected into one volume’. Brettle comments: ‘It would appear that in this second issue any mention of Marston’s name was omitted. A new general title-page was supplied; The publisher's preliminary epistle was left out; anonymous title-pages were given to the several plays; and the two signed dramatist's addresses to the reader were left unsigned.’ The Stationer’s register contains no reference to Sheares having any rights in Marston’s plays at all . Sheares, then pirated these plays and perhaps took the risk of publication on the assumption that the owners of the copies might not be very anxious to claim their rights in a period when the attack on plays and players was approaching its apogee. In this year the master of the Revels ordered the re-licensing of old plays, and it also saw the publication of Prynne’s Histrio-Mastix, in a sense the summation of the Puritan attack on the stage. .Marston had left the stage and entered the Church in 1609. In 1633, in view of the prevailing climate of opinion, he was probably anxious to conceal his earlier association with drama. He may well have been in the city when he heard of Sheares’s edition or, indeed, seen a copy of the first issue, for we know he died in London in 1634. . The probable explanation for the cancels in the second issue of the 1633 edition is thus that Marston personally objected to its printing. . In the second issue of the 1633 edition the intention was to remove all traces of authorship: in fact few extant copies contain a complete set of cancels." W. Reaveley Gair. "Antonio's Revenge: John Marston". John Marston (1576 – 1634) was an English poet, playwright and satirist during the late Elizabethan and Jacobean periods. His career as a writer lasted a decade, and his work is remembered for its energetic and often obscure style, its contributions to the development of a distinctively Jacobean style in poetry, and its idiosyncratic vocabulary. A successful working playwright, he was associated with many different London acting companies and exemplifies both the best and the worst traits of Elizabethan drama. Although his works were consigned to obscurity for centuries after his death, critical interest in Marston's works revived in the nineteenth century and during the 1930s; they are now acknowledged as an important part of Elizabethan literary history. "We are aware, in short, with this as with Marston’s other plays, that we have to do with a positive, powerful and unique personality. His is an original variation of that deep discontent and rebelliousness so frequent among the Elizabethan dramatists. He is, like the greatest of them, occupied in saying something else than appears in the literal actions and characters whom he [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        ARGONAUTICA GUSTAVIANA; DAS IST: NOTHWENDIGE NACH RICHT VON DER NEWEN SEEFAHRT UND KAUFFHANDLUNG...DURCH ARICHTUNG EINER GENERAL HANDEL-COMPAGNIE

      Frankfurt, 1633. Folio. 18th-century plain stiff wrappers. Wrappers worn and stained, spine perished, front wrapper nearly detached. Ex-lib. with a small bookplate with deaccession stamp on the inner front wrapper, and an unobtrusive ink stamp on the titlepage. Lightly age-toned. Very good overall. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. "The largest and most important publication of the founder of the Dutch and Swedish West India Companies and probably the first piece of American promotion literature in German. It had considerable influence in beginning the German and Swedish migration to Pennsylvania and Delaware" - Vail. Willem Usselinx, who came from a spice- trading family in Antwerp, had seen the goods flooding into Spain and Portugal from their American colonies. In 1624, at the urging of Usselinx, King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden issued an edict establishing the exclusive rights of a new Swedish company to trade with Africa, America, Asia, and the "Terra Magellanica." The present volume brings together all of Usselinx's writings on the Swedish West India Company, some in their original language and others in translation. Included is a printing of the original charter of the "South Company," published to increase interest in the trading company; prospectuses for the company from 1624 and 1626; directions to subscribers; various memorials by Usselinx; and much more. A rare work, and a foundation piece for the Dutch and Swedish colonies in the mid-Atlantic, from New York to Wilmington.

        NOVUS ORBIS SEU DESCRIPTIONIS INDIAE OCCIDENTALIS LIBRI XVIII

      Leiden, 1633. Half title. Engraved title with elaborate emblematic and architectonic border. Folio. Contemporary calf, covers with double-fillet border in blind, spine in seven compartments with raised bands, the bands flanked by pairs of fillets in blind, painted figure "4" carefully painted in an attractive early calligraphic hand in white paint in the uppermost compartment, red-stained edges, expert restoration to head and foot of spine. In a modern cloth chemise, and red half morocco and cloth slipcase, lettered in gilt on the spine. An exceptional copy of the first Latin edition of "arguably the finest description of the Americas published in the seventeenth century" (Burden). The maps include the first to use the names Manhattan, New Amsterdam (for New York), and Massachusetts, and "one of the foundation maps of Canada" (Burden). This work is one of the most important 17th-century New World histories. It is a cornucopia of early knowledge of the Americas and was compiled by de Laet, a director of the newly formed Dutch West India Company, with access to all the latest geographic knowledge. Pierre François Xavier de Charlevoix, writing in the 18th century, noted that the work as a whole "is full of the most excellent and curious details of the natural history, and the character, manners, and customs of the American aborigines, derived from the reports of the European mission establishments in America." The present first edition in Latin was preceded by two editions in Dutch (the first of which was published in 1625). De Laet continued to add to and improve the work throughout his lifetime: the present edition contains fourteen maps as opposed to the ten in the 1625 edition, and the text has been considerably expanded. This copy is unusual in two respects: firstly, its outstanding condition; and secondly, for the early, certainly 17th-century, annotations by an English- speaking owner who appears to have had some contact with the Americas, or at least with the products of the region. The front free endpaper includes an accomplished small ink drawing of a plant labeled "Cassavi" with a two- line note beside it: "Mammosaporta / a Jamaica fruite." The second blank includes a reference to an important scientific work by Mario Bettino first published in 1645, MARII BETTINI APIARIUM MATHEMATICUM. The index of the subjects of the woodcuts on the page preceding the first page of the main text includes two references which correctly identify "a Kinge Crab. novis Anglis" and a pineapple as a "Queene Pine." The maps are by Hessel Gerritsz and are some of the very best to appear up to that time. Gerritsz had trained under Willem Blaeu, but had been chosen in preference to his old master when the appointment of cartographer to the Dutch West India Company was made. The charming in- text illustrations are chiefly of biological or botanical specimens and are generally surprisingly accurate for their time, and each of the eighteen constituent books is turned over to the consideration of a different region of the New World. The quality of the maps can be gauged from the fact that they served as a prototype for the mapping of America, with a number of them being reused in various later 17th-century atlases. The maps are titled as follows: 1) "Americae sive Indiae occidentalis tabula generalis." Burden 229: "The best west coast delineation to date." 2) "Maiores minoresque insulae. Hispaniola, Cuba, Lucaiae et Caribes" 3) "Nova Francia et regiones adiacentes." Burden 230: "One of the foundation maps of Canada." 4) "Nova Anglia, Novum Belgium et Virginia." Burden 231: "The first [map] to use the names Manhattan and N. Amsterdam. It is also the earliest to use...Massachusets [sic]." CUMMING 35. SCHWARTZ & EHRENBERG, p.105. 5) "Florida. et regiones vicinae." Burden 232: "Its influence was quite considerable." CUMMING 34. 6) "Nova Hispania, Nova Gallicia, Guatamala." Burden 215: "The delineation of the coastlines here was the most accurate to date." 7) "Tierra Firma item Nuevo Reyno de Granada atque Popayan" 8) "Peru" 9) "Chili" 10) "Provinciae sitae ad fretum Magellanis itemque fretum Le Maire" 11) "Paraguay, o prov. de rio de la Plata: cum adiacentibus Provinciis, quas vocant Tucuman, et Sta. Cruz de la Sierra" 12) "Provinciua de Brasil cum adiacentibus provinciis" 13) "Guaiania sive provinciae intra rio de las Amazonas atque rio de Yviapari sive Orinoque" 14) "Venezuela, atque occidentalis pars Novae Andalusiae

Notes Schwerdt: "Latham's 'Falconry' ranks among the principal books on hawking in the English language." Harting notes that Turberville, Bert, and Latham "may be regarded as the old English masters of Falconry. They wrote chiefly from experience" (xxiii). The two books were published in 1615 and 1618, and this edition uses the woodblocks of the original and is, according to Harting, "quite as good as the first, of which it is a reprint without alteration." Almost nothing is known of the life of the author; he is identified with "Simon Latham, yeoman of Bletsoe, whose will was proved in Bedfordshire in 1649" by the ODNB, which characterizes his writing on hawking as "original, practical, and of lasting value.". ESTC S123200 & S123201; Harting 20 (see also notes at 18 & 19); Schwerdt I, p. 302 et seq.

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.

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.

        De Mari Libero, und Paulus Merula s "Dissertatio de Maribus" und Marcus Zuerius Boxhorn s "Apologia Pro Navigationibus Hollandorum, Adversus Pontum Heuterum"

      Lugd. Batavorum (Leiden), ex officina Elzeviriana 1633 - Mit einem gestochenen Frontispiz, 308 Seiten SEHR SELTENER TITEL IN EINEM SCHÖNEN FESTEN EXEMPLAR mit schönen gestochenen Initialen und herrlichen Kopf- und Schluss-Vignetten sowie einem sauberen alten Bibliotheksstempel. Hugo Grotius war einer der wichtigsten Rechtsgelehrten des 17. Jahrhunderts und galt als ein Wunderkind. Bereits als 12-Jähriger trat er in die Universität Leiden ein und lenkte schon frühzeitig die Aufmerksamkeit des großen J. J. Scaliger auf sich. Er promovierte zum Doktor der Rechte und verfasste 1604 als 21-Jähriger aus Anlass eines Rechtsfalles, bei dem es um das Eigentum an einer portugisischen Galeone ging, die in der Meerenge von Malakka gekapert wurden war, eine Abhandlung mit dem Titel "De jure praedae" ("Über das Recht am Raube"). Es enthält bereits die Grundgedanken seines späteren Hauptwerkes, blieb aber bis 1868 unveröffentlicht. Lediglich ein Kapitel daraus wurde 1609 zunächst anonym unter dem Titel "Mare Liberum" ("Das freie Meer") veröffentlicht. Die katholische Kirche indiziert "Mare liberum" umgehend, da es die päpstliche Weltordnung untergrub. Grotius formulierte hier einen revolutionären neuen Grundsatz, indem er erklärte, die Meere seien internationale Gewässer und alle Nationen hätten das Recht, sie zur Handelsschifffahrt zu nutzen. 1925 schrieb er binnen eines Jahres sein Meisterwerk "De jure Belli ac Pacis" (Über das Kriegs- und Friedensrecht), das ihn in ganz Europa berühmt machte. Dieses Werk, das für die späteren Auffassungen des Völkerrechts grundlegend wurde, war der erste Versuch, außerhalb der Kirche und der heiligen Schrift einen Rechtsgrundsatz aufzustellen und eine Rechtsgrundlage für Gesellschaft und Regierung zu schaffen. Die Unterscheidung zwischen Religion einerseits und Recht und Moralität andereseits ist zwar nicht klar und eindeutig getroffen, aber dessen ungeachtet ist Grotius' Prinzip eines unwandelbaren Rechts, das Gott ebenso wenig ändern kann wie ein mathematisches Axiom, die erste Formulierung des "droit naturel", des Naturrechts, das die großen politischen Theoretiker des 18. Jahrhunderts so stark beschäftigte und das die Grundlage des modernen Völkerrechts ist. Sprache: de 12°, braun mellierte alte Pp mit gedrucktem Rückentitel

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

      London, Richard Barker: and by the assignes of John Bill. 1633. 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. First printing of this reissue (see notes below). STC 9257. 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.
