London: Printed by George Miller, 1633. Small 4to (19 cm; 7.5"). [8] ff., 120 pp., [3] ff., pp. 121-260, [3] ff. First of four editions. Leigh (1602–71), a decided puritan, was described by one contemporary as "‘a man of fiery disposition" and by another as "a cunning man"; in addition to his religious duties he found time and inclination for politics and was elected to Parliament. He summarizes his study of God's promises this way: "a general description of their nature, kindes, excellency, right use, properties, and the persons to whom they belong," and the "declaration of the covenant it self, the bundle and body of all the promises, and the special promises likewise, which concern a mans self or others, both temporal, spiritual, and eternal." Provenance: "Presented by the Hon. Rev. L. Barrington, 1895" in a neat hand at the top of the title-page; on rear endpaper, upside down, is "Robert French [possibly, Trench] is the right owner of this booke. ESTC S108428; Wing (rev. ed.)

- 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

LATHAM, S.
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.

GIORDANI, Vitale.
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tastefully bound in ruled red morocco, interior gilt dentelles; title-page dusty and trimmed at upper & outer margins; repaired corner of prelims. Otherwise very good.Rare first edition of the first book on Vietnam in English, an eyewitness account of the commerce, government and cultural life of Cochin-China (central Vietnam) written by the Jesuit missionary Cristoforo Borri and first published in Italian in 1631.Borri begins by marking the kingdom's boundaries, identifying it as a narrow strip of land between Laos and the South China Sea, bordered to the north by Tongking and to the south by Champa. A discussion of the kingdom's fertile land and rich natural resources follows, emphasizing the abundance of fruits, nuts, rice, fish, textiles, domestic stock, and "all other things requisite for the entertainement of a man's life." Silk is produced in such quantities that "the baser sort of people wear it dayly." Gold and silver mines abound, and "the Wood and Timber of this countrey is the best of all the world." Having piqued his readers' curiosity, the author goes on to describe Cochin-China's vibrant commercial climate, declaring it free of the red tape and bureaucratic hostility that so often greeted European traders in East Asia.Borri's 1631 Relazione, a Jesuit missions letter directed at his Catholic superiors and lay readers, was already unusual among works in its genre for devoting a substantial part exclusively to non-religious content.

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.

HERBERT, George
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).

Gerard Mercator (1512-1594)
Gerard Mercator (1512-1594) / Jodocus Hondius (1563-1612)Orbis Terrae Novissima DescriptioAmsterdam: 1633 (third state)Hand-colored copperplate engraving29 ½" x 35 ¾" framedFor nearly sixty years, during the most important and exciting period in the story of modern mapmaking, Gerard Mercator was the supreme cartographer, his name, second only to Ptolemy, synonymous with forms of map projection still in use today. His influence transformed land surveying and his research and calculations lead him to break away from Ptolemy's conception of the size and outline of the continents, developing a projection that drastically reduced the longitudinal length of Europe and Asia and altered the shape of the Old World as visualized in the early 16th century. Although not the inventor of this type of projection, Mercator was the first to apply it to navigational charts in such a form that compass bearing could be plotted on charts in straight lines, thereby providing seamen with a solution to an age-old problem of navigation at sea. Mercator's innovations, including the aptly named Mercator projection, continue to be employed in maps produced today, 400 years later.     The geographer died in 1594 after publishing just a few parts of the atlas that he had spent decades preparing. In 1604, after the death of Gerard's son Rumold, the plates for his maps were sold to the great Amsterdam cartographer, Jodocus Hondius, who brought out the first of the so-called "Mercator-Hondius" editions in 1606. Hondius continued to augment and perfect the atlas over the following years, constantly adding n … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ryves (Thomas, Sir)
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.

[Charles I]
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 'Book of Sports' 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 'Book of Sports' grew and in 1634, after the outbreak of the war, Parliam … [Click Below for Full Description]

Folded as issued, now flattened, fine colouring, lower right margin with a small paper loss far from printed image. 392 mm x 296 mm; 356 mm x 282 mm. A foundation map, included in Laet and Gerritsz´ Nieuwe wereldt ofte Beschrijvinghe van West-Indien; extends from North West Venezuela to Brazil, and shows the mouth of what are arguably South America´s most important Rivers. Gerritsz was a Dutch cartographer, apprenticed to Blaeu and chosen over him after starting his own business; he gained the appointment of cartographer to the Dutch East –and West- India Company, his are in many cases foundation maps for several regions of the Americas, later used as prototypes by Blaeu & Hondius. Most of his work exists only in manuscript and these maps often are the only Gerritsz maps available to the collector today. Laet (1593 – 1649) was a Dutch geographer and businessman, his overseas trading eventually led him to become a founding director of the Dutch West India Company, a position that enabled him to gain access to updated sources of information, both from the Company’s archives and seamen.
