GERARD, John
London: Printed by Adam Islip Joice Norton and Richard Whitakers, 1633., 1633. FIRST Thos. JOHNSON EDITION. SECOND EDITION overall. 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. Shows remarkably well- it being almost impossible these days to put your hands on a copy that doesn't have the main part of the prelims laid down, lacking, or is wanting the errata leaf. 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. The Hunt Botanical catalogue, I-223.

PATIN, Charles
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 chemist … [Click Below for Full Description]

In this copy F1v has the brief printer's license added (Keynes records copies with printing and blank, either and neither licenses present.) Grolier, Langland to Wither, 71. Keynes, Donne, 78.

PRYNNE, William
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….

Langham, William.
London: Printed by Thomas Harper, 1633. 4to in 8s (19 cm; 7.5"). [4] ff., 702 pp., [33] ff. 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, whic … [Click Below for Full Description]

ROSSETTI, Donato.
BMC STC Italian, p. 796; Poggendorff II, col. 700; Riccardi I, R-col. 394; Thorndike VII, p. 583; not in Honeyman. 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. It was written by Donato Rossetti, professor of natural philosophy at Pisa, in the wake of Galileo's 1633 trial for promoting the heliocentric theory of the solar system. 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.

Of these, the De veritate, (ÔOn TruthÕ), 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.

Papier légèrement bruni, quelques taches aux premiers feuillets, plat inférieur légèrement gauchi, néanmoins un assez bon exemplaire. Fascinants comptes-rendus des missions jésuites au Japon, sous forme de lettres écrites par les missionnaires, au plus fort de la répression anti-chrétienne qui sévit dans ce pays de 1614 à 1638. A la fin de cette période l"Eglise japonaise se trouvera définitivement décapitée, après presque un siècle de présence chrétienne continue, depuis l"arrivée de François Xavier en 1550. On y trouve les récits des conversions et baptêmes effectués, mais surtout la narration par le détail des nombreuses persécutions et exécutions subies par les missionnaires et les chrétiens dans les diverses provinces. En fin d"ouvrage se trouvent deux chapitres concernant la Chine et le Paraguy. Le premier est consacré à la découverte et à l" "Explication des mots escrits et gravez sur une pierre antique": il s"agit de la fameuse stèle nestorienne découverte en 1625 à Sanxuen (à proximité de la ville actuelle de Xian), qui relate les 150 premières années de l"histoire du christianisme en Chine. Aujourd"hui exposée au musée de Xian -avec une copie au musée Guimet à Paris-, cette stèle érigée en 781 témoigne de la présence de la chrétient … [Click Below for Full Description]

PASQUIER Etienne
Chez Martin Collet 1633 - - Chez Martin Collet, Paris 1633, In Folio (22x34,4cm), (20) 1019pp. (1) (75), relié. - Nouvelle édition, réimpression de la première édition en dix livres parue en 1621 illustrée d'un portrait par Léonard Gautier et d'une grande vignette aux armes royales. Page de titre en rouge et noir. Impression sur papier fin. Demi veau d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Coiffe de tête élimée. Mors supérieur fendu en tête. Frottements sur les plats. Coins émoussés. Oeuvre encyclopédique et fort célèbre, Les recherches de la France se distinguent entre tous les ouvrages de ce genre par sa radicale nouveauté. Pasquier peut être considéré comme le père de l'histoire moderne, l'Histoire naissant alors comme discipline et s'écartant de la légende et de la littérature. Le chapitre VII, fort différent des autres puisque ceux-là s'attachaient à des recherches sur l'Antiquité de la France, s »intéresse à la formation de la langue française une partie est consacrée à la Pléiade, dont Pasquier fut un des membres. Le chapitre VI s'occupait déjà de l'origine de la poésie française. « Monument unique élévé aux antiquités, les Recherches comportent par leur variété et leur hardiesse, tout ce que pouvait prétendre un érudit du XVIe siècle ». Robert Barroux (archiviste de Paris et historien). (20) 1019pp. (1) (75) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Leather of time, back professionally renewed. Nissen 698 - STC 11751 - Blunt 164 f. - Hunt I, 223 - Lowndes 879 - Pritzel 3282 - Henrey I, 35-54 - Rohde 98 ff. - Krivatsy 4667 - Neu 1605 - Parkinson-Lumb 997 - Wellcome I, 2753 "The Bible of English herbalists... Johnston's Gerard is half as long as Gerard, contains 1765 woodcuts almost all taken from a different source (mostly the Plantin pool), and is in every respect immeasurably superior to its predecessor" (Blunt). The engraved title is followed by page "q3". Because all other copies show also only 18 pre-pages, we think, that if at all possible one leaf is missing, it could only be a white leaf. Title page restaurered, title and first leaf cutted to edge, first leafes little foxed and stained, in some places paper slightly waterstained, ca. 12 leafes slithly varnished at edges. The last leaf ammended in manuscript, last leaves more stained and creased, last two leaves remargined, at these leafes parts from edge torned off with little loss of text. But at all a very good copy..
