VEGA Garcilaso de la
à Paris: Chez Augustin Courbé. VEGA Garcilaso de la Le Commentaire royal ou l'Histoire des yncas, roys du Peru Chez Augustin Courbe, Paris 1633, in-4 (16 x 23 cm), (2 f.) (44 p.) 1319 pp. (32 p.) (1 f.), contemporary vellumFirst French translation by Jean Baudoin, following the original Spanish, which was published in 1609 in Lisbon. This translation is only of the first part of the Commentaire royal; the second has apparently never been translated. The frontispiece shows a Peruvian city in the upper portion, most likely Cuzco, with a procession celebrating the various forces of nature. In the lower portion are two Incas, named as Manco Capac and Mama Occlo, framing the title; above are two vignettes showing jewels, and a caravel. The plate is normally signed M.L. (the L here has been erased) for Michel Lasne, a French draughtsman and engraver who was best known as a student of Rubens'.Contemporary vellum, spine in four compartments with ink title to head, corners very slightly bumped. Small damsptains to head and foot of inner margin throughout, wormtracks to pp. 867-977 and 1269-1286, slightly touching the numbering of the quires in places, but not the body of the text.The frontispiece sums up the themes of the text in showing the riches of a land conquered by the Spanish, all the while foregrounding key figures of Peruvian history.The man on the left, Manco Capac, is traditionally considered the first emperor of the Incas at Cuzco. Mama Occlo was his wife. In putting these two mythical figures of the founding of Inca civilization at the very front of his work, Garcilaso … [Click Below for Full Description]

John Donne
London: JUVENILIA: OR CERTAINE PARADOXES AND PROBLEMES. LONDON: PRINTED BY E[LIZABETH]. P[URSLOWE]. FOR HENRY SEYLE, AND ARE TO BE SOLD AT THE SIGNE OF THE TYGERS HEAD, IN SAINT PAULS CHURCHYARD, 1633. 4to (7 1/4 x 5 3/8 in.; 185 x 136 mm). Woodcut printer's device on title-page copied from the Estiennes (McKerrow 311), a profusion of wood- and metal-cut initials and woodcut and typographic head- and tailpieces, with initial blank A1; a bit of marginal darkening. Top spine torn (see photos). Very pleasing copy. First edition, with licenses to print on both F1v and H4v. "Donne's Juvenilia are clever and entertaining trifles, most of which were probably written before 1600 during the more wanton period of the author's life. His own opinion of them was expressed in a letter to Sir Henry Wooton in 1600: ... 'they were made rather to deceave tyme than her daughter truth'" (Keynes). Although these Paradoxes and Problemes were widely circulated in manuscript, their secular, if not vulgar, character prevented them from being published during the author's lifetime. The catalogue of the Grolier Club's quatrocentenary exhibition of Donne mentions that while copies of both the first and second editions of Juvenilia are frequently found bound with the 1633 edition of Donne's Poems, "copies bound separately in contemporary bindings are rare.".

Schurman, Anna Maria van (1607-1678)
"In this self portrait Anna Maria van Schurman combined the techniques of engraving and etching. She depicted herself wearing an elegant dress embellished with lace on the bodice and sleeves. She convincingly rendered the illusion of spatial depth by shading the inner rim of the oval frame and placing herself behind a ledge, which pushes her figure farther back into the picture plane.That ledge also obscures her hands. Van Schurman hid her hands in her first engraved self-portrait (1633), as well, for which a correspondent, the poet and statesman Constantijn Huygens, chided her. He admonished van Schurman for being ashamed of her ink-stained hands, which he said ""have never found their equal.""As the inscription on the oval frame tells us, the artist realized this palte in 1640 when she was 33 years old. The Latin inscription at the bottom is addressed to her friends, to whom she sent this portrait. It reads: 'See my likeness depicted in this portrait:/May your favor perfect the work where art has failed.' [Cernitis hic picta nostros in imagine vultus: / Si negat ars forma, gratia vestra dabit]. Signed on bottom right with her initials: 'A.M. á S. Fec.'."."Etching and engraving on laid paper; trimmed closed to plate mark; total: 203 x 156 mm; state IV/4, some dirt and smudges along the margins; some dirt on the verso; two tiny worm holes the size of small pin holes. Little scratch mark on the forehead; beautiful impression; Hollstein 3."

Francis Bacon
J. Lichfield for Thomas Huggins. Beautiful nicely-bound 1633 edition of one of Francis Bacon's seminal works. Wonderful early copy of an important work by Elizabethan/Jacobean scholar Francis Bacon, First Viscount St Alban, a contemporary of Queen Elizabeth I, King James I (of King James Bible fame), William Shakespeare (i.e. Edward de Vere, the 17th Early of Oxford), Sir Edmund Spenser, William Camden, etc. For a time Bacon was erroneously believed to be William Shakespeare by some fringe scholars who doubted the man from Stratford. Since 1920, J. Thomas Looney proved Bacon was not Shakespeare but may have been Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford in "Shakespeare Identified". The Two Bookes of Sir Francis Bacon of the Proficience and Advancement of Learning, Divine and Humane. To the King. by Francis Bacon Third Edition/First Oxford Printed by I.(J.) L. (Lichfield) Printer to the University (i.e. Oxford), for Thomas Huggins, 1633. (True first edition 1605) The first edition was printed in 1605, dedicated to King James I (of King James Bible fame) concerning the importance and not only the break-down of fields of scholarship in education but other aspects of activities such as sports, namely tennis which he claims "So that as tennis is a game of no use in itself, but of great use in respect it maketh a quick eye and a body ready to put itself into all postures", somewhat similar to John Locke's Some Thoughts Concerning Education which was addressed to a friend's son.

[ANON]
London: By the Deputies of Christopher Barker, 1633. A very nice copy of Barker's edition of the Geneva Bible. Complete. Old Testament in two parts, New Testament, Metrical Psalms. With the engraved title pages and all other engravings and cuts as outlined in Darlow & Moule. This is a difficult item to correctly date, D&M devoted pages to it. Having compared the lines we concur "The whole investigation seems to show that these editions of the Geneva-Tomson were published at different times in Amsterdam and Dort, and adopted afterwards by Barker, who affixed the date 1599 because this was a well known and popular edition." (p117) This copy states it was printed in 1599. It most closely collates with "Lea Wilson's No 5 of this series" As with most copies listed, the Apocrypha is listed in the contents, but not present. Some marginalia, with a family account of a marriage and ten children born between 1759 and 1779. The book of Common prayer is a nice copy, with some signatures to the title page and end papers. Contains the Almanac, proper lessons etc: it is followed by another copy of the Psalms. (Collected by Thomas Sternhold & John Hopkins). The binding is a solid, if unexciting full leather binding, a little rubbed, and with the leather clasps now gone. The leather label to the spine (fairly recent) states "book of Common Prayer". A little darkening and some marks consistent with age, but overall in very good condition. A leaf of the feast days for 1757 has been laid into the rear inside board.<br />230 by 180mm (9 by 7 inches).<br />Book of Common Prayer: A-H6; Old Testa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Matthaus MERIAN "il vecchio" (1593 - 1650)
"Carta geografica raffigurante parte del Pernambuco, con le città di Olinda e Recife. La carta è tratta dall'ultima edizione de ""Grandi Viaggi"" di Johannes Theodor de Bry, curata da Mattheus Merian ed edita a Francoforte nel 1633-34. Incisione in rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione." The map, displayed on a roll above, shows the coastal contours, with place-names along the Brazilian coast near Recife and Olinda, and below is a bird's-eye view of the siege with ships and the movements of the troops. With the hope of taking control of the sugar trade in Brazil, the fleet of the Dutch West India Company attacked Recife. While the troops landed further north, the fleet, under the command of Admiral Lonq, tried to force an entrance to the harbour but his ships were repulsed by the Portuguese, under the command of Albuquerque. The siege lasted two weeks and in the end the Dutch finally broke through. The Portuguese, however, not wishing their rivals to benefit from their labours, burnt all their sugar warehouses and shipping, the loss of which was estimated at two million ducats.

Antico restauro all?angolo bianco di una carta ma bella copia. Tagli spuzzati di rosso. Uno dei più raffinati prodotti dell'editoria illustrata seicentesca, il De Florum Cultura del gesuita Giovan Battista Ferrari, pubblicata a Roma nel 1633 e ristampata nel 1638 in traduzione italiana col titolo di Flora overo cultura di fiori; è un'opera eclettica che riflette l'atmosfera culturale del papato di Urbano VIII Barberini e delle ricerche naturalistiche degli Accademici Lincei. Diviso in quattro libri, il trattato intendeva proporsi come un manuale sui fiori ornamentali nostrani ed esotici assai ambiti dalle famiglie più prestigiose della Città Eterna, ma nella sua dilatata struttura digressioni precettistiche sull'allestimento di un giardino si mescolano a notazioni su meraviglie ed artifici floreali. Consapevole della necessità di un rapporto interattivo tra notazione verbale e corrispettiva immagine, l'autore volle arricchire l'opera con un sontuoso corredo iconografico che illustrasse le essenze vegetali descritte ed alcune amene 'favolette' su accattivanti metamorfosi floreali. Ad approntare queste tavole furono alcuni tra i più prestigiosi artisti del tempo, come Guido Reni, Pietro da Cortona e Friederich Greuter. Un testo di floricoltura, orticoltura e di storia naturale, scientificamente ineccepibile, che ambiva a proporsi anche come uno strumento di 'diletto' e che può offrire ancor oggi piacevoli sorprese non solo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Published late in 1632, though the title page is dated 1633, Prynne's was not the first attack on the morality of the theater, but it was longest and most famous. It was immediately burnt by the common hangman and he was imprisoned and his ears removed. The harshness of the reaction has often been traced to his calling women actors "whores" and Queen Henrietta Maria had recently appeared in a masque. He also attacks Shakespeare complaining that his books are printed on Crown paper better than that used for the bible (The second folio first appeared in 1632). Size: Quarto (4to).

Jacques Callot
Jacques Callot, Les Misères et les Malheurs de la Guerre. Paris, France: Israel Henriet, 1633. The series is Callot's best-known work and has been called the first "anti-war statement" in European art. Les Grand Misères depict the destruction unleashed on civilians during the Thirty Years' War; no specific campaign is depicted, but the set inevitably recalls the actions of the army that Cardinal Richelieu sent in 1633 to occupy Callot's native Lorraine before annexing it to France. The series begins with a florid title page, followed by an enrollment parade and a battle scene. Despite the grand theme of the series, the images are in fact only about 83 mm x 180 mm each, and are called the "large" Miseries to distinguish them from an even smaller earlier set on the same subject. Plates 4 - 8 show bands of the victorious soldiers successively attacking a farm, convent, and coach, and burning a village. In plates 9 - 14 they are rounded up and subjected to various methods of public torture and execution. Plate 15 shows crippled soldiers in a grand neo-classical hospital, Plate 16 unemployed soldiers dying in the street, and Plate 17 the peasants taking revenge on a group they have captured, killing them with flails. Plate 18 shows an enthroned king distributing rewards to the victorious generals. Jacques Callot (1592-1635) was a baroque printmaker and draftsman from the Duchy of Lorraine (an independent state on the north-eastern border of France, southwestern border of Germany and overlapping the southern Netherlands). He is an important person in the development of the old ma … [Click Below for Full Description]

It also has been shown that in El Maestro del Príncipe, Fernandez Otero wanted princes to be prepared for war, without having to rely on counselors (Enrique García Hernán, ?Escritos políticos palentinos del Siglo de Oro,? in PITTM, LXXIII, Palencia, 2002, p. 271; see also pp. 245-273).The first Libro is on finding a good tutor for a prince and the qualities and qualifications that individual should have; the second Libro is more specifically focused on what the prince should be taught and why, and how the prince?s schedule should be arranged, with emphasis on Catholic virtues and practices.

Very much Enlarged and Amended by Thomas Johnson Citizen and Apothecarye of London. Folio (335 x 220 mm). Twentieth-century dark red crushed morocco by Henry Young & Sons of Liverpool (signed in gilt at foot of front turn-in), spine gilt-lettered direct, sides framed in gilt and blind, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Engraved vignette title page by John Payne, 2,766 woodcut illustrations. A touch of rubbing at ends of joints, engraved title mounted on stub and repaired at lower fore-corner, without initial and final blanks, a dozen leaves with repairs at edge very occasionally touching text, a well-conserved copy in a handsome binding of good quality. First edition of Johnson's enlarged version of the herbalist's major work, first published in 1597. Thomas Johnson (c.1595-1644), the London apothecary who was already a botanical writer of some note by 1633, sensibly marked his additions and major alterations to the first edition, making it possible to distinguish the revisions from the original. His edition brought a new and more scholarly focus to Gerard's Herball; it was greatly esteemed, was reprinted in 1636, and became more and more expensive throughout the following centuries. It is extensively illustrated and Johnson drew several of the diagrams himself. The woodcuts included in the first edition were printed from wood-blocks obtained from Frankfurt which had been used to illustrate the Eicones plantarum of Taberaemmontan … [Click Below for Full Description]

The Treaty of Madrid, here in the first Lisbon edition (Portugal at this time was controlled by Spain), made peace between Spain and Britain. Its main importance to the New World was its guarantee that British traders could move freely and do business in America and the East Indies, except those parts of the West Indies and Central and South America where the Spanish had settlements. Thus it still kept England out of the Caribbean, but gave free rein to trade with the North American colonies, and for the British to pursue their plantings of colonies in unoccupied parts of the Americas.

There are some handwritten words, perhaps names of previous owners and some tiny notes on the title page.Title-page with small woodcut vignette.BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES: CLAUDIUS GALEN (131-201), was physician to five Roman emperors. He was a teacher, philosopher, pharmacist and leading scientist of his day. During his life he produced five hundred books and treatises on all aspects of medical science and philosophical subjects and his ideas were to formulate many of the scientific beliefs which dominated medical thinking for about 1 500 years. Galen was the great compiler and systemiser of Greco-Roman medicine, physiology, pharmacy and anatomy. Because he displayed a view of God and nature shared by the Christians of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, he was regarded by them as a fellow-Christian. This goes some way to account for the attitude of the Church towards free thinkers such as Paracelsus who challenged Galen's teachings. Galen's influence can be still seen today. The word "galenic" is used to describe drugs and medicines made from vegetable and animal ingredients using prescribed methods.. Latin, Greek. Book Condition: Very Good. Binding: Original Vellum

RUFUS, Quintus Curtius
1633 Alexander the Great Quintus Curtius Rufus Military Conquest Greece Elzevier “Nothing can be lasting when reason does not rule.” Quintus Curtius Rufus, Histories of Alexander the Great This famous and important work by Quintus Curtius was inspired by the celebrated Macedonian ruler Alexander the Great and was written, more than likely, during the reign of Caligula in Rome. The style of Quintus Curtius’s writing was a directly in line with Livy, whose work on the people of Rome greatly influenced the writing of “Histories of Alexander the Great.” Curtius describes the strange and mysterious things that Alexander the Great encounters on his military expedition and does so with great historical acumen. This book, along with Livy and Tacitus, should always be considered part of the canon of ancient world texts. This 1633 edition was published by Daniel Elzevier and edited by Daniel Heinsius, and was line-for-line reissue of the first edition. The first edition was immensely popular and the Elzevier’s responded with numerous reprints. This example features the rare and impressive folding map of the expeditions of Alexander the Great. Both Willems and Goldsmid call this edition ‘beautiful’ and ‘fine’; and the fact that this edition was reissued numerous times “adds to the typographic beauty the merit of a great correction” (Willems).

"Un des plus complets des traités anciens d'astrologie judiciaire" (Caillet). - Minimal gebräunt. Titel am unteren Rand leicht ausgefranst (ohne Textverlust). Einband gering bestoßen. Hinterer Deckel mit kleiner Wurmspur im Überzug. Insgesamt wohlerhalten. - VD17 23:239277V; Caillet 9145; Houzeau-Lancaster 4965 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

HERBERT, GEORGE
Cambridge: T. Buck, and R. Daniel, 1633. Second Edition. THE RARE 1633 SECOND EDITION (FOLLOWING THE EXTREMELY SCARCE FIRST EDITION OF THE SAME YEAR) OF ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL WORKS OF ENGLISH POETRY. A BEAUTIFUL COPY. "Educated at home, at Westminster School and at Trinity College, Cambridge, [Herbert] was in 1620 elected orator of the university, a position that he described as 'the finest place in the university.'

By1625 Herbert's sponsors at court were dead or out of favour, and he turned to the church, being ordained deacon. He resigned as orator in 1627 and in 1630 was ordained priest and became rector at Bemerton. He became friends with Nicholas Ferrar, who had founded a religious community at nearby Little Gidding, and devoted himself to his rural parish and the reconstruction of his church. Throughout his life he wrote poems, and from his deathbed he sent a manuscript volume to Ferrar, asking him to decide whether to publish or destroy them. Ferrar published them with the title The Temple: Sacred Poems and Private Ejaculations in 1633. "Herbert described his poems as 'a picture of the many spiritual conflicts that have passed between God and my soul, before I could subject mine to the will of Jesus, my Master, in whose service I have now found perfect freedom.' Herbert shares his conflicts with John Donne, the arc … [Click Below for Full Description]
