      [London:] Exc. Lutetiae Parisiorum. MDCXXIV. Iam denuò sed auctius & emendatius recud. London, Augustinus Matthaeus, 1633 Second edition. The first edition was published in Paris in 1624 and is rare, only one copy having appeared at auction in the last thirty years. This second edition is also very scarce. Recent quarter calf over marbled boards. Quarto. Eighteenth century annotation on front endpaper giving details of the history of the book. A good, clean copy. "....his writings, which constitute a wholly original contribution to thought. Of these, the De veritate, ('On Truth'), is the most important...The book contains an elaborate theory of knowledge linked with some penetrating psychology, to which is added a scheme of natural religion: it is in many ways an English precursor of the natural theology and rationalist philosophy by Descartes. "....The most striking thing about the De veritate is not its theory of knowledge, but its metaphysical sophistication, especially in the theory of notitiae communes, the absolute truths. 'So far are these elements or sacred principles from being derived from experience or observation that without some of them we can neither experience nor even observe.' Kant might well have said that" (Printing and the Mind of Man).

        Bellarminus enervatus, siue Disputationes anti-Bellarminianae, in illustri Frisiorum Academia ... In quatuor tomos divisus

      Londini [i.e. Amsterdam?]: [W.J. Blaeu? for London] Apud Ioannem Humpfridum [& H. Robinson], 1633 [i.e.,1632]. 12mo (12.5 cm, 4.9"). Four parts in one. [4] ff., 208 pp.; 218; [2], 401, [11] pp. Collection of arguments against Jesuit cardinal Robert Bellarmine (Bellarmino, 1542–1621) by the English theologian William Ames (Amesio, 1576–1633), by its title-page the second edition printed in England. => However ESTC suggests this is a false imprint , printed in Amsterdam for the London firms. A disciple of William Perkins (1558–1602), Ames ran into trouble preaching extreme Puritanism at Cambridge. When his nonconformity prevented his obtaining a preaching license in England, Ames moved to the Netherlands, where he was chaplain to the commander of English forces 1611–19 and wrote many treatises in support of strict Calvinism. Although he hoped to obtain a professorship at Leiden after the Synod of Dort, Ames was prevented by King James himself, who opposed the appointment to such a prestigious post. Ames moved again, to Franeker, where he had been invited by the curators to teach. It was there he composed the present text, a theological treatise against Bellarmine from the Calvinist point of view (first published at Amsterdam in 1625–26). Ames was => invited to America by John Winthrop in 1628 but accepted a post at Rotterdam instead. His family traveled to New England in 1637, a few years after his death. Four parts compose this single volume, which is paginated continuously in the third and fourth part; a separate title-page introduces each section, with the imprint date 1632 on parts II–IV. The text is printed in Latin — Bellarmine's points in italic and Ames's counter-points in roman, supported by citations in italic — with decorative ornaments on the section titles and at the end of the first part. ESTC notes the ornament on general title-page exists in two forms: a bunch of fruit, or the Jesuit mark of a burning heart with "IHS"; ours is the latter. ESTC S116616; STC 551. On Ames, see: Oxford Dictionary of National Biography online. Contemporary vellum with yapp edges, title and date inked early to spine; lightly soiled, ore to spine, dark top edge, . Library bookplate on front pastedown, pressure-stamp on title-page and last printed leaf, old inked control number. A few spots, a few small tears, one lower corner torn away without loss; the springy binding and good overall condition suggest this book was little-used, which is confirmed by a number of uncut pages.

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

      - Leiden: Elzevier, 1633. Folio. (13 1/8 x 8 3/8 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 bordered with a blind double fillet, armorial gilt stamp on the covers, expertly rebacked retaining the original spine. The first Latin edition of "arguably the finest description of the Americas published in the seventeenth century.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 which was compiled by de Laet, a director of the newly formed Dutch West India Company who had 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. 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.

        Lathams Falconry: or, the Faulcons Lure, and Cure: in two books. The first, concerning the ordering and training up of all Hawkes in generall; especially the Haggard Faulcon Gentle. The second, teaching approved medicines for the cure of all Diseases in them. Gathered by long practice and experience, and published for the delight of noble mindes, and instruction of young Faulconers in things pertaining to this Princely Art.

      London, Thomas Harper, for John Harison, 1633. 2 volumes (bound in one). 4to (190 x 138mm). pp. (24), 147, (1, blank); pp. (22), 148, (4), with woodcut illustration on title, and 31 woodcuts (some repeated) in the text. Later calf, sides with gilt border, richly gilt ornamented spine with 2 red gilt lettered labels, gilt edges. First collected edition of the two volumes. "Latham's 'Falconry' ranks among the principal books on hawking in the English language... J.E. Harting, the great authority on hawking literature, states that a relative of Latham was assistant falconer and subsequently sergeant of the hawks to the successors of Sir Thomas Monson, i.e. to Sir Patrick Hume, Master Falconer to the King, and Sir Allen Apsley. This relative was 60 years of age when Latham published his book in 1614-15, so that we may assume that a good deal of knowledge was derived by him from this source. Latham in the second book, refers to Henry Sadler of Everley, Grand Falconer to Queen Elisabeth, as 'his first and loving master'" (Schwerdt I, 302). The first volume was first published in 1615, and the second volume in 1618. The present edition is the first collected edition, using the same woodblocks and according to Harting 'quite as good as the first, of which it is a reprint without alteration'. An attractively bound and well preserved copy of this rare item. Old signature on title. Harting, Bibliotheca Accipitraria 20; Schwerdt I, 302.

        Euclide restituto overo gli antichi elementi geometrici ristaurati, e facilitati de Vitale Giordano da Bitonto; Libri XV. Ne i quali principalemente si dimostra la compositione delle proportioni secondo la definitione datane dal suo antico autore.Rome: Angelo Bernabo, 1680.

      First edition of this rare commentary on Euclid, and a highly significant work in the history of non-Euclidean geometry, containing "the first real advance in understanding the parallel postulate in 600 years" (Martin, p. 272). <br/><br/> Giordano (1633-1711) was born in the kingdom of Naples but fled to Venice after killing his brother-in-law. There he studied science and became secretary to the Admiral of Venice. He then went to Rome, where he decided to devote himself to mathematics, studying among other works Commandino's Italian translation of Euclid. In Rome he became friends with Giovanni Borelli, and he titled this, his first published work, after Borelli's <i>Euclides restitutus</i> (1658). In that work, Borelli defined parallels as equidistant straight lines, but Giordano noted that this definition depended upon the assumption that a line everywhere equidistant from a straight line is itself straight. This in turn is due to Clavius, whose proof of the assumption in his 1574 commentary on Euclid is faulty. Giordano therefore attempted his own proof of the assumption. <br/><br/> "Giordano Vitale again returns to the idea of equidistance put forward by Posidonius, and recognizes, with Proclus, that it is necessary to exclude the possibility of the Euclidean parallels being asymptotic lines. To this end he defines two equidistant straight lines as parallels, and attempts to prove that the locus of the points equidistant from one straight line is another straight line" (Bonola, p. 14). <br/><br/> As Bonola shows, Giordano's argument is itself faulty, but in the course of his attempted proof he does correctly establish the following statement: 'if three points on a line are each equidistant from a second line, then all points are equidistant.' "We regard this as one of the most noteworthy results in the theory of parallels obtained up to that date" (Bonola, p. 15). Giordano's proof makes use of a quadrilateral which has two sides, of equal length, each perpendicular to a third side. This is now known as a 'Saccheri quadrilateral', after Girolamo Saccheri made extensive use of it in his famous <i>Euclides ab omni naevo vindicatus</i> (Milan, 1733). In fact, Bonola (p. 26) points out that some of Saccheri's important results are contained in those established by Giordano in the present work. <br/><br/> Giordano was employed for a year as a mathematician by ex-Queen Christina of Sweden during her final stay in Rome. In 1667, a year after its foundation by Louis XIV, he became a lecturer in mathematics at the French Academy in Rome, and in 1685 he gained the chair of mathematics at the prestigious Sapienza University in Rome. Friend of Vincenzo Viviani, Giordano met Leibniz in Rome when Leibniz stayed there during his journey through Italy in the years 1689-90. He gave Leibniz a copy of the second edition of the present work (1686). <br/><br/> Giordano published two other books, <i>De componensis gravium momentis dissertatio</i> (Rome, 1687) and <i>Fundamenta doctrinae motus gravium</i> (Rome 1688), which treat the mechanics and theories of gravitation of Borelli and Torricelli. <br/><br/> Graesse II p.513; Poggendorf I 90; Riccardi I 603.

        NOVUS ORBIS SEU DESCRIPTIONIS INDIAE OCCIDENTALIS LIBRI XVIII

      Leiden: Elzevier, 1633.. [32],690,[18]pp. plus fourteen double-page maps by Hessel Gerritsz. Sixty- eight woodcuts in text. 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 modern red morocco- backed 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 Kings Maiesties Declaration to His Subiects, Concerning Lawfull Sports to Bee Vsed

      London: John Barker. 1633. Second Edition. Hardcover. 19th century three quarter morocco over marbled boards, spine ends and corners rubbed, bookplate on front pastedown and manuscript notes on ffep, pamphlet lacks first and final blank leaves, leaf A4r with variant headpiece showing David with a harp, test clean and bright. , The Declaration of Sports was a declaration made in 1617 by James I to settle a dispute in Lancashire. The following year it James decided to make the declaration applicable to the whole nation and the "Declaration to His Subiects, Concerning Lawfull Sports to Bee Vsed" was published. This copy is of the reissue made by Charles I in 1633. The main body of the text is the same as that of the earlier declaration with the addition of a new introduction and conclusion. These added wakes and ales to the list of sanctioned recreations. The book was disliked by puritans, who considered playing sports on the sabbath an abomination, and part of its original purpose had been to limit the puritan influence. Charles went further than his father in attempting to impose his religious ideas on the nation and ordered that any minister who refused to read the declaration be deprived of his position. Given the upheavals in England during the middle of the 17th century the &#39;Book of Sports&#39; seems relatively unimportant. It did however provide a focus for popular resentment toward the reforms of Archbishop Laud and as puritan power grew in the run up to the Civil War hostility to the &#39;Book of Sports&#39; grew and in 1634, after the outbreak of the war, Parliament ordered the book publicly burned. , 4to , [2] 17 [1] pp .

      [London:] Exc. Lutetiae Parisiorum. MDCXXIV. Iam denuò sed auctius & emendatius recud. London, Augustinus Matthaeus, 1633 Second edition. The first edition was published in Paris in 1624 and is rare, only one copy having appeared at auction in the last thirty years. This second edition is also very scarce. Recent quarter calf over marbled boards. Quarto. Eighteenth century annotation on front endpaper giving details of the history of the book. A good, clean copy. "....his writings, which constitute a wholly original contribution to thought. Of these, the De veritate, ('On Truth'), is the most important...The book contains an elaborate theory of knowledge linked with some penetrating psychology, to which is added a scheme of natural religion: it is in many ways an English precursor of the natural theology and rationalist philosophy by Descartes. "....The most striking thing about the De veritate is not its theory of knowledge, but its metaphysical sophistication, especially in the theory of notitiae communes, the absolute truths. 'So far are these elements or sacred principles from being derived from experience or observation that without some of them we can neither experience nor even observe.' Kant might well have said that" (Printing and the Mind of Man).

        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&#39;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&#39;s Virginia of 1612, without longitude and the various names added in Smith&#39;s later states. Upon Hondius&#39;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&#39;s L&#39;Appendice de l&#39;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)

David de Planis Campy (1589- c.1644) was a councilllor and surgeon in ordinary to Louis XIII. He produced 10 works on medical chemistry and traditional alchemy. 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.
