        The Temple. Sacred Poems And Private Ejaculations. By Mr. George Herbert, late Oratour of the Universitie of Cambridge. The second Edition. Psal. 29. In his Temple doth every man speak of his honour

      Printed: 1633. 1593-1633 Duodecimo, 5.6 x 3.2 inches. Second edition, printed in the same year as the first edition. The type was reset throughout and some ornaments were changed. Ù4, A-H12, I2. The text of the Temple includes the pattern poems, "The Altar," and "Easter Wings." This copy is in good condition. It is bound in nineteenth century, full blind tooled brown calfskin with nineteenth century russet Morocco. The spine and the boards are tooled in bline, the title and author's name are tooled in gold on the front and back boards. The edges of the text block are stained red and the end papers are marbled. This binding is in good shape. We may partly distinguish two poets in Herbert. There is, first, the parish priest of early seventeenth-century England who revered his Church as a chaste mother neither 'painted' nor 'undrest;' who deplored the worm of schism eating away the English rose and (to the disturbance of the Cambridge licenser in 1633) saw Religion standing "on tip-toe in our land, Readie to passe to the American strand;" who celebrated with loving particularity and complete security of belief the meaning of God's temple and worship. It is this poet who can be fully appreciated, in Coleridge's works, only by 'an affectionate and dutiful child of the Church;' and it is to Herbert's writings and life that we owe much of our picture of the order, strength, and beauty of seventeenth-century Anglicanism at its best. But church-bells are heard beyond the stars, and the Anglican parish priest meres with the larger poet, with the very human saint who gives fresh and moving utterance to the aspirations and failures of the spiritual life. This is the Herbert we know through 'Aaron,' 'Discipline,' 'The Collar,' 'The Pulley,' and many other poems in which he strives to subdue the willful or kindle the apathetic self. His principal themes are those 'two vast, spacious things ... Sinne and Love.' There is nothing soft in the poet who seeks to engrave divine love in steel; and a catalogue of gratuitous, untempered, and short-lived sweets leads up to the magnificent contrast of the disciplined soul that 'never gives.' "As the Anglican merges with the greater poet, so the 'quaint' writer merges with the metaphysical. Herbert had his share of the age's passion for anagrams and the like, which Addison was to condemn as 'false Wit.' But the poet who could shape a poem in the physical likeness of 'The Altar' or 'Easter Wings' had, even more than most of his fellows, a functional sense of meter and rhythm. The technical experimentalist and master was, we remember, a skilled and devoted musician. The movement of his verse, taut or relaxed, can suggest all his fluctuating moods, from self-will or weakness to joyful surrender and assured strength. He moves from this world to the world of the spirit 'As from one room t'another, or dwells simultaneously in both, and it is in keeping with that habit of mind, and with metaphysical origins in general, that many of his poems should be allegorical anecdotes, transfigured emblems. Apart from some of his fine dramatic openings, Herbert does not attempt the high pitch of Donne's 'Divine Poems.' His great effects are all the greater for rising out of a homely, colloquial quietness of tone; and peace brings quiet endings- 'So I did sit and eat;' 'And I reply'd, My Lord.' Though the friend and admirer of Donne (and of Bacon), Herbert did not cultivate scholastic or scientific imagery; mature and everyday life, the Bible and the liturgy were his chief sources. The highest truth, as he said more than once, must be plainly dressed. In spite of his classical learning and his Latin and Greek verse, he avoided the common surface classicism of the time. Of the elements of a deeper classicism, if we care to use that name, he had muscular density, precision, deceptive simplicity, and a dynamic sense of form. At times his structure may be a winding stair, but it is all built of seasoned timber." (D. Bush, English Literature in the Earlier Seventeenth Century, page 137-138)

        Nova Virginiae Tabula

      Amsterdam: Henry Hondius, [No date but 1633]. Engraving with hand- colouring. French text. Some minor browning and toning. Skilful repairs to left and right margins. 15 1/8 x 19 1/2 inches. 18 1/4 x 22 1/8 inches. "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.

        Certaine Learned And Elegant VVorkes Of The Right Honorable Fvlke Lord Brooke, Written in his Youth, and familiar Exercise with Sir Philip Sidney. The seuerall Names of which Workes the following page doth declare

      Printed: 1633. 1554-1628 Small folio, 8 1/4 X 5 1/2 inches . First edition. p2; d-k4, L2, D-Z4, Aa-Qq4 Rr6, This copy is complete, lacking the first and last blank leaves. In all the known copies of this work the pagination begins with p. 23, signature d. It is generally believed that the book originally began with "A treatise on religion" said to have been suppressed by order of Archbishop Laud. Grosart thinks the missing pages were prefatory matter containing a life of the author "with fuller details of his murder than his friends cared to let the world read" as stated in Biographia Britannica. cf. Memorial-introd. in Grosart's edition of Brooke's works, 1870, and Grolier Club, Catalogue of ... works ... from Wither to Prior, 1905. This copy is in good condition internally with only the usual minor dampstaining, and closely trimed . It is bound in full nineteenth century calfskin, ruled in gilt with edges stained safron. The binding has been skillfully rebacked . Fulke Greville, afterwards lord Brooke, wrote (but did not publish) at the end of the sixteenth century a miscellaneous collection of poems called Caelica. The collection consisted of one hundred and nine short poems, on each of which the author bestowed the title of sonnet. Only thirty-seven, however, are quatorzains. The remaining seventy-two so-called 'sonnets' are lyrics of all lengths and in all meters. There is little internal connection among Brooke's poems, and they deserve to be treated as a series of independent lyrics. [.] The series was published for the first time as late as 1633, in a collection of Lord Brooke's poetical writings. It may be reckoned the latest example of the Elizabethan sonnet-sequence." (quoted from page 304, Cambridge History of English Literature, vol. III) "If Fulke Greville, first Lord Brooke (1554-1628), had been born twenty years later, he might perhaps have stood -with Chapman rather than with Donne- in the forefront of the metaphysical movement. What Edward Phillips called his 'close, mysterious and sentencious way of writing' is nearer the metaphysical than the Spenserian manner, yet Greville shows, in Humane Learning, a Hobbesian distrust of metaphor, and his normal utterance is of a massive realistic plainness fitted for sober and penetrating thought. In parts of Caelica, which was begun under Sidney's inspiration, he wreathed iron pokers into true-love knots, and although, according to Naunton, he 'lived, dyed, a constant Courtier of the Ladies,' no series of love poems was ever less amorous. For all the Petrarchan and Sidneian fancies, and the omnipresence of Cupid, Caelica, Myra, and Cynthia are something less than shadows, and towards the end they fade away altogether behind religious and philosophical reflection." (quoted from page 94, Bush's English Literature in the Earlier Seventeenth Century)

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.
