        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.

Folio; pp. [xxxviii - no blanks], (erratically numbered as usual 1-30, 29-30, 31-1630), [2], [45], [1] (errata). Without blanks. Illustrated with over 2,600 text woodcuts. Pages 141, 721, 1119, 1207, 1303 trimmed shorter (supplied later); two leaves (Xxx4 and Vvvv3) with ink annotations in a period hand. A few spots of isolated marginal damage, archival repair to bottom fore corner of first page detailing grasses and a couple of marginal ink spots sum up the notable defects, which is otherwise a serviceable copy. Browning to edges and trifling foxing, internally fresh and bright, a couple of isolated spots of soiling. Superbly bound in full contemporary dark brown calf, skilfully rebacked with original spine, later green title label.

A generally clean copy with beautiful engravings; an important example of the herbalist's art. This is the first edition enlarged and edited by Thomas Johnson who corrected many of Gerard's more gullible errors, and improved the accuracy of the illustrations by using Plantin's woodcut.

        Novus Orbis, seu descriptionis Indiae occidentalis.

      Leiden: Elzevir, 1633. - Folio (12 6/8 x 8 4/8 inches). Half-title, engraved architectural title-page, 14 engraved double-page maps by Hessel Gerritsz (very browned), numerous woodcut illustrations of plants, animals and inhabitants of the New World in text. Contemporary vellum, yapp fore-edges, title written in manuscript on the spine. Provenance: early annotations to verso of the front free endpaper. First Edition in Latin, first published as "Nieuwe Wereldt ofte Beschrijvinghe van West-Indien" in Leiden in 1625. "One of the most famous contemporary descriptions of the natural history of the New World. The work was highly praised a century later by Charlevoix, attesting to its accuracy. Winsor referred to Laet's book as the standard seventeenth-century work on New Netherland" (Streeter sale I:37). De Laet was a director of the Dutch West India Company, and so had access to the latest information, both from the company's personnel and from the archives. Although an important record - and perhaps the best seventeenth-century account - of the Americas, the real significance of the book is the suite of maps used to illustrate it, drawn by Hessel Gerritsz, official mapmaker to the Dutch West India Company and to the East India Company, chosen in preference to Willem Blaeu. De Laet maintained the currency of subsequent editions by adding events as they occurred, making this the most complete edition, recording the sacking of Bahia, the conquest of Olinda, Itamaraca, Parahiba, and Rio Grande do Norte. There is also a contemporary marginal note in English (p. 259) disputing a claim made in the text on the capture of Truxillo in Honduras. The work was used as an atlas during the second half of the seventeenth century and is recognized for the accuracy of its maps because Laet had access to the latest geographic data as a director of the Dutch West India Company. Burden points out the new, more open style of engraving which was adopted by Blaeu and Jansson. This edition includes four regional American maps first published in the enlarged second edition of 1630. The map of "Nova Anglia" is of "extreme importance being the first printed one to use the names "Manbattes" (Manhattan), and "N. Amsterdam", or New York, founded in 1626. It is also the earliest to use the Dutch names of "Noordt Rivier" and "Zuyd Rivier", for the Hudson and Delaware Rivers respectively, as well as the Indian "Massachusetts", for the new English colony" (Burden). Many of the maps served as prototypes for later Dutch maps of the region; The translation from the Dutch was probably by Laet himself. De Laet was born in Antwerp but in 1585, the family, like thousands of Flemish protestants, fled to the northern Netherlands. After studying philosophy in Leiden the young de Laet traveled to London in 1603, obtained his denizenship, but after the death of his wife returned to Leiden, where in April 1608 he "married Maria Boudewijns van Berlicum (d. 1643). There he made a fortune through overseas trade and land investments, at home and at Laetburg, near Albany, in New Netherland. In 1619 he was appointed a director of the Dutch West Indies Company, a position he held until his death. "In the ongoing religious quarrels which troubled Holland, de Laet sided with the counter-remonstrants (Gomarists) against the remonstrants (Arminians), an allegiance evident in his 'Commentarii de Pelagianis et Semi-Pelagianis' (1617). In 1618 he was delegated for Leiden to the Synod of Dort, where he befriended the theologian Samuel Ward, master of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, one of the several English delegates. In his leisure time he proved a prolific, many-sided scholar with a keen interest in theology, geography, botany, classical philology, and comparative historical linguistics. Still of importance are his lavishly illustrated books on the Americas—'Nieuwe wereldt' (1625), which he also translated into Latin (1633) and French (1640) [as here], a detailed account of the early years of the 'Dutch West In [Attributes: First Edition]

        Traité des tourbes combustibles

      With engraved vignette on title and the famous portrait of ?Monsieur Charles Patin? by Claude Lefebvre, French painter and etcher. Contemporary full calf, slightly warped and somewhat worn; first and last leaves browned around the edges, small waterstain on last blank and paste - down, text in excellent condition. First edition of this very rare treatise describing the use of peat as a fuel. The author discusses the varieties and sources of combustible peat used to make charcoal as well as many useful by - products in agriculture, cooking and botany. At the time, charcoal was believed to mainly consist of bitumen and sulpher, causing strong fumes, which Patin was much opposed to because of his concern with dangers of health caused by inhalation. Proficient in metallurgy, Patin was an early advocate of ecology, with his knowledge that strong organic matter accumulates in the ground and gives rise to significant drops in mineral contents, causing many problems for plant growth. At the end of the book is a proposal of the Sieur de Chambre for the artificial production of peat bogs surrounding Paris along with royal letter patent for a thirty year process. Patin (1633 - 1693), the gifted son of Gui Patin, by the age of 23 completed his law studies and received his M.D. degree. He taught anatomy and pathology at the medical school of Paris, but was obliged to leave France for fear of imprisonment for circulation of certain libels which drew upon him the resentment of the court. He traveled extensively, finally settling in Padua, Italy, where he was appointed professor of chemistry, physic and medicine. He was a man of extensive learning and a voluminous writer in Latin, French, and Italian. Patin is well known for his work on numismatics and medals.

      The engraved frontispiece facing the title by Stefano della Bella depicting Aristotle, Ptolemy and Copernicus in discussion surmounted by the Medici arms appears to be a facsimile on contemporary paper; woodcut printer?s device on title, woodcut initials, headpieces and diagrams. Contemporary vellum, Galileo and Systema Cosmica written in ink on spine; minor browning and spotting as usual. First edition of Galileo?s statement and defence of the Copernican system of heliocentrism, which directly led to his trial for heresy in Rome in 1633. The Dialogo was designed both as an appeal to the great public and as an escape from silence. In the form of an open discussion between three friends ?" intellectually speaking, a radical, a conservative, and an agnostic ?" it is a masterly polemic for the new science.

        Poems, By J.D. With Elegies On The Authors Death

      London: Printed by M[iles] F[lesher] for John Marriot, 1633. First edition. First edition of the principal collection of Donne's poetical works, issued two years after his death. In a lovely modern binding, full red morocco, raised bands on the spine with gilt compartments, black morocco spine label, decorative tooling on the front and rear boards and marbled end papers. Small quarto (175 x 132 mm.) collating: [x], 406 pp. Poems with the rare two leaves (signed A and A2) containing "The Printer to the Understanders" and "Hexastichon Bibliopolæ," not present in all copies. Leaf Nn1 in the earliest, uncorrected state with thirty-five lines of text on p. 273, instead of thirty or thirty-one, as later corrected. With numerous woodcuts throughout. Top edge trimmed close, occasionally affecting decorative line above the running title. The odd spot of soiling or finger smudge, but generally in excellent condition. Leaf Mm with the edge of the corner torn off. "This book appears to have been repeatedly corrected as it passed through the press and consequently it is found in a number of different states...It seems to be clear, however, that these 'states are really governed by chance according to the order in which the sheets were taken up for folding before making up the book. No importance, therefore, can be attached to the various combinations in which the corrections are found...One of the more conspicuous irregularities in the printing is seen on Nn1a (p. 273), where there is no running head-line between rules and there are five more lines of text than on a normal page...The two leaves with The printer to the Understanders and Hexastichon Bibliopolae (with sign. A and A2) are an insertion, and are placed sometimes after the Epistle, but more often in the centre of the first quire...Sometimes the two leaves of The printer etc. are omitted altogether. It seems probable that they were an afterthought and were inserted in only a portion of the edition" (Keynes). Grolier, Langland to Wither, 71. Keynes, Donne, 78. Pforzheimer 296. STC 7045.

First Complete Scottish King James Bible and First Edinburgh Book of Common Prayer. An uncommon lot, including the first complete King James Bible printed in Scotland, and the first Edinburgh edition of the Book of Common Prayer. The Bible follows a separate printing of the New Testament in 1628. This edition, it is suggested, was printed in connection with the Coronation of Charles I in Edinburgh in June 1633. Some copies of this printing of the New Testament were accompanied by plates, but these were later additions (ca. 1638), and there are two settings of some of the sheets, which are frequently comingled. In this copy, the catchword at 3G1 is "But"; 2F6v has the reading "carkases"; the catchword at 3G1r is "37 But"; and the headline on 3K3r is "Of Widows." The Book of Common Prayer is the form with catchword "pride" at B1r, and anticipates the ill-fated 1637 revision for the Church of Scotland. The editions of Genealogies, the Concordance, and the Psalms are contemporary editions of the sort that are characteristically found bound with various editions of the Bible originating from London and elsewhere. The Edinburgh Bible is scarce: ESTC locates five copies in North America: Folger, Huntington, NYPL, Newberry and Univ. of Pennsylvania. The Prayer book is also uncommon, with three copies located in North America (Harvard, Huntington and this copy, now properly deaccessioned). Of the Psalms, four copies are located in North America: Folger, LC, UT, and again, this copy.

        Histrio-Mastix. The Players Scourge, or Actors Tragædie

      1633. PRYNNE, William. Histrio-Mastix. The Players Scourge, or Actors Tragædie divided into two parts. Wherein it is largely evidenced, by divers arguments, by the concurring authorities and resolutions of sundry texts of Scripture; of the whole Primitive Church, both under the Law and Gospell; of 55 Synodes and Councels ... That popular stage-playes (the very Pompes of the Divell which we renounce ... ) ... are sinfull, heathenish, lewde, ungodly spectacles. [34], 512 pp., 513-568 ff., 545-1006, [40] pp. Thick 8vo., 192 x 145 mm, bound in contemporary English polished calf, nineteenth-century red leather title label on spine, blind-stamped initials "T I" in both covers. London: Printed by E.A. and W.I. for Michael Sparke, 1633. First Edition of one of the outrageous publications concerning actors of the Renaissance and pre- Restoration theater in England. By Prynne's accounting, the theater was the home of "sinfull, heathenish, lewde, [and] ungodly spectacles" and the thespians were even worse. "In this passionate 1633 tirade of over one thousand pages larded with authorities in 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 strikes directly at King Charles and Queen Henrietta Maria, who regularly danced in court masques (see NAEL 8, 1.1326), through his several stories of kings and magistrates who met untimely ends after encouraging or participating in theatrical productions. Some of the remarks, especially about "women actors, notorious whores" and "scurrilous amorous pastorals," were thought to refer directly to the queen, who produced as well as acted in several masques and pastorals." "In consequence, Prynne was immediately imprisoned and a year later stripped of his academic degrees, ejected from the legal profession, and placed in the pillory at Westminster and Cheapside; his books were burned before him, his ears were partially cut off, and he was remanded to life imprisonment (though later released by Parliament). The severity of the sentence indicates the high stakes in these culture wars: according to one of Prynne's judges, his book would instigate "disobedience to the state, and a general dislike unto all governments" (Norton Anthology of English Literature, Norton Topics Online, "The Early Seventeenth Century Civil Wars of Ideas"). William Prynne (1600-1669) was one of the most prolific of seventeenth-century English writers. It is said Prynne, upon reaching adulthood, wrote one sheet of text for every day of his life. He is mostly noted as English Puritan pamphleteer whose vituperative writings against the government of King Charles I intensified the antagonisms between the Charles and the English Parliament in the years preceding the English Civil Wars (1642-51). Condition: old repair in upper compartment of spine, title-label supplied in 19th century, first signatutre partially sprung, though perfectly strong, scrape on lowest cord of spine; overall, still very good copy in a contemporary, high-quality English binding. PROVENANCE: Blind-stamped initials "T I" in both covers. STC 20464a. Arnolt & Robinson 276.

      Apud Robertum Barker 1633 - one folding plate with five woodcuts (in this copy divided into two and bound at the end), some browning and spotting, small square excised from blank area of title-page and repaired, ownership stamp, pp. [viii], 357, 356-491, [3], 8vo, early nineteenth-century European marbled calf, smooth spine divided by triple gilt fillets between decorative pallets, red morocco lettering- and dating-pieces, central gilt tools, boards bordered with a double gilt fillet and a floral roll, a.e.r., a bit rubbed, spine chipped at head, good Sir Thomas Ryves (d. 1652), a civil lawyer and amateur historian and polemicist, published three books on naval history: the first, ‘Historia Navalis, lib. i’ was a short treatise which appeared in 1629, and was incorporated into this larger ‘Historia Navalis Antiqua’ a few years later, covering naval history down to the Roman empire. His third was a further continuation, to 1453, which appeared in 1640. ‘In 1683 Samuel Pepys praised Ryves’s Historia navalis in fulsome terms, "there being not anything I know of extant in history, so much to the honour of our country as this piece of Sir Thomas Reeves, I am sure, nor so edifying to me upon the subject which above all others I am covetous of information in" (Downshire MSS, 1.18)’ (ODNB). Lehmann, in a paper presented at Tropis IV (‘Five Centuries before Olympias’), noted that Ryves anticipated the modern consensus on levels of oars - i.e. that no ship had more than three, and larger ships added more oarsmen on each oar.

        THE ENGLISH GENTLEMAN: containing sundry excellent Rules or exquisite Observations, tending to Direction of every Gentleman, of selecter Ranke and Qualitie; how to demeane or accommodate himselfe in the manage of publike or private Affaires ...

      London: Printed by Felix Kynston, and are to be sold by Robert Bostocke, 1633. Second edition, revised, corrected and enlarged. Extra engraved title-page, small 4to, pp. [10] leaves, 456, [2] leaves. Bound in new quarter leather, spine gilt in raised bands, ex-library with two small stamps, some browning and minor staining, a very good tight copy. STC 3564; Newberry 208. Aresty p. 304; see Wither to Prior, 66. A classic courtesy book describing the attributes of an English Gentleman under eight heads: youth, disposition, education, vocation, recreation, acquaintance, moderation, and perfection. Aresty notes that Braithwaite (1588?-1673) was a Royalist born to the estate of a gentleman. He attended Oxford and Cambridge, indulged in some light poetry before settling into the life of a gentleman. As a justice of the peace, he was an influential figure in his small world. His influence in molding the lives of the typical gentleman was widespead, however, and his books were even found in libraries in the US. Susan Hull, in her "Chaste, Silent & Obedient" (p. 32 ff) notes that Brathwaite's "The English Gentlewoman" "is probably more representative of the genteel English middle-class. Here the ideal, modest woman is a wife and mother involved in the "Breeding and Education of Youth". The courtier, instead of being an ideal is rejected ... Religion and class [are] dominent infuences on behavior and the respectable middle-class English woman was depicted as a modest lover of home and hearth." "Braithwaite ... went at his subject like a serious schoolmaster and Puritan, though he was neither ... His philosophy of moderation in all things, and his preference for the contemplative life ...

        Nova Virginiae Tabula

      Henricus Hondius, Amsterdam 1633 - Copper engraving, French text on verso. Good condition, with small expert marginal repairs, thinning of paper to small areas at the upper left and right of the verso. A classic, early cartographic representation of Virginia: Hondius's version of John Smith's important map. This is the fifth of the many derivatives of Captain John Smith's map of Virginia, the earliest true map of the first permanent English colony in America. This map stays close in content to the Hondius-Blaeu map of 1629, which was in turn based on the first state of the Smith map. The early Dutch versions of the map were the primary disseminators of information on Virginia throughout the European continent until the closing decades of the seventeenth century. The map is beautifully ornamented with the Royal Arms of Britain (colonial rulers of Virginia) , a standing figure of an Indian, and an inset vignette of "King Powhatan," the father of Pocahantas, sitting in state in his lodge. Powhatan was the powerful ruler of about thirty Algonquian tribes in the region, the strongest single group of Indians on the Atlantic coast. He is said to have had forty bodyguards and 100 wives. His rulership consisted of his providing military leadership and protection in exchange for tribute from the individual tribes. The ceremony at which Captain John Smith thought he was saved by Powhatan's daughter Pocahontas was apparently a ritual in which Smith agreed on behalf of his tribe, the whites, to submit to Powhatan's leadership. Smith, of course, completely misunderstood the event. This copy of the map, with French text on verso, is an early issue of Burden's first state. Verner notes: "This is a beautifully engraved and decorative map." Burden, The Mapping of North America 228, state 1; Koeman, Atlantes Neelandici Me 31 A #72; Taylor, American Colonies, p. 125-132; Verner, 165-166.

        Guiana suie Amazonum Regio

      c.1633 - Art Source International is proud to offer rare maps produced in 1633 by one of the dominant map-making houses of the 1630%27s. The atlas that this map is attributed to was first published in 1633 by Henricus Hondius and Joannes Janssonius and contained individual works by each map-maker, some derived from Henricus%27s brother Jodocus" plates, and a number of maps by Mercator that Hondius acquired from his father -also Jodocus. Although it is somewhat unclear which maps were published cooperatively between Henricus Hondius and Joannes Janssonius and which were individual works, this map illustrating Guyana bears the imprint of Henricus Hondius. The large, exceptionally well maintained map has beautiful hand coloring highlighting rivers, coast lines, and political boundaries. Many place names are identified, especially along the coast. The map is bright and full with ships sailing in he ocean, and sea monsters.

Contemporary limp sheepskin parchment, with 2 fastenings made from loops of braided cord on the front cover but only traces of thongs on the back.

Rare first edition of a handbook of physics, including optics, mechanics, fluid dynamics and cosmography, illustrated with numerous woodcut diagrams and other illustrations in the text.

Rossetti later became tutor in mathematics to the Duke of Savoy and professor of mathematics at Turin. The book is a refutation of Geminiano Montanari's Pensieri fisico-matematici (Bologna 1667). In the period shortly after Galileo, experimentalists like Montanari (1633-1675) engaged in a battle against the more mystical views of scientists such as Rossetti.With an early Italian owner's inscription on the title-page. In very good condition, with only a couple small marginal holes in the title-page. The parchment has a couple stains and a couple holes in the spine, but is otherwise very good.

        The Temple. Sacred poems and private ejaculations

      Cambride: by Thom. Buck, and Roger Daniel,, 1633. Duodecimo (143 × 77 mm). Skilfully rebound in full tan calf, red morocco label, plain endpapers. Title within typographic border, typographic head- and tailpieces. Title leaf restored in gutter not affecting text or border, some browning and soiling, chiefly marginal, a good copy. First edition of Herbert's poems, collected by his friend Nicholas Ferrar of Little Gidding and posthumously published the same year as those of John Donne, with whom Herbert is often bracketed. Herbert's English poems are notable for their controlled and inventive use of form, expressed in a wide variety of modes and dramatic voices. Using more homely imagery than Donne's extravagant metaphysical conceits, they often echo the Psalms in simplicity of diction and metaphor. "One of Herbert's most influential admirers of the century was T. S. Eliot … Herbert continues to be a major influence on poets writing in English, including – among those in the twentieth century – the American writer Elizabeth Bishop and the Irish poet and critic Seamus Heaney" (ODNB).
