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. King James' son Charles was five years old at the time of the first edition, and King James, for all his … [Click Below for Full Description]

[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.

Roma, Stephanus Paulinus, 1633. PRIMA edizione. In 4to (cm. 24); bella legatura in pergamena rigida coeva; frontespizio inciso; pp. (8), 522 + 16 d?indice. 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]

(32), 1006, 40pp. Second issue with the errata on the verso of ***4. 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]

El maestro del príncipe is referred to in La cultura española en la Edade Moderna (Luis Gil Fernández, et al., Madrid: Ediciones Istmo, 2004.), p. 553, as one of the noteworthy examples of pedagogy for princes in the sixteenth and seventeenth century. 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. Many rhetorical devices are found in the text, along with quotations from Aristotle, Augustine, Tomas Aquinas, Sene … [Click Below for Full Description]

GERARDE, John.
London: printed by Adam Islip, Joice Norton, and Richard Whitakers, 1633. London: printed by Adam Islip, Joice Norton, and Richard Whitakers,, 1633. 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 Taberaemmontanus (1590), but Johnson supplemented these with superior illustrations from the stock … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Treaty of Madrid]
Lisbon: Antonio Aluarez, 1633. 20 leaves, plus errata. Vignette on titlepage. Modern three-quarter morocco and marbled boards. Later 17th-century ownership signature on titlepage. Very good. 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. An important treaty, with substantial economic consequences. Scarce. Not in EUROPEAN AMERICANA. DAVENPORT 35. PALAU 43236.

In very good shape save for some overall general soiling to the vellum as would be expected and a cracked inner front hinge. 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).

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.' His two immediate predecessors in the office had risen to high positions in the state, and Herbert was much involved with the court. During Herbert's academic career, his only published verse was that written for special occasions in Greek and Latin. 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]

[.] Ce mémoire du frère de Sully, diplomate souvent employé sous Henri IV et Louis XIII, n’est pas une œuvre de polémique, mais un traité dogmatique sur la manière de gouverner l’État: c’est une sorte de manuel sur l’éducation des princes, dans lequel l’auteur donne une foule de conseils." (S.H.F.)."L'auteur recommande notamment de soumettre les grands à l'observation des lois, car il faut veiller à rendre leurs actions conformes à la règle commune, aussi explique Philippe de Béthune, le prince pourra-t-il dépêcher et faire mourir secrètement et sans autre forme de justice, ceux qui ne peuvent être punis sans trouble et sans danger pour l'Etat. Et si au fond, ils méritent la mort, le prince peut se dispenser des formes pour la sûreté de son Etat. [.] De même le souverain peut fouiller d'autorité dans la bourse des plus riches en cas de grande nécessité et pauvreté de l'Etat. [.] Sans doute de telles actions sont-elles en soi injustes, mais l'injustice est "contrepesée" par la nécessité et l'utilité publiques." (Cornette). [Attributes: First Edition]

Early 20th-century full polished tan calf, spine with raised bands and with two red morocco lettering-pieces; pp. [xvi, including initial blank], 80, 89-184, 189-219, [1]; a little worming with slight loss of letters and light spotting. Very rare first edition in English of this Hellenistic text of the 2nd century BCE describing how the Septuagint was produced, based on the editio princeps, published in Basel in 1561. The Hellenized Greek speaking Jewish community needed a Greek version of the Hebrew Bible, as well as the Ptolemaic king of Egypt Ptolemy II Philadelphus, as the founder of the most famous library of the ancient world - described here for the first time - was interested to have this influential text corpus in his collection. This work relates how the Egyptian chief librarian urges his king to have Hebrew legal tests translated. He sends envoys to the Temple in Jerusalem and the High Priest choses 72 men (sometimes 70 - hence the name Septuagint) to translate independently the entire corpus and they arrived at almost identical Greek versions. Apart from the detailed narrative of the diplomatic correspondence between Alexandria and Jerusalem, and the philosophical debate about the result at the Egyptian court, the book gives details about the topography, population and trades of Jerusalem and the surrounding countryside as experienced by the Egyptian envoys on their journey. - This translation was frequently attributed to the poet John Donne, even by Keynes. ESTC S122439. [Attributes: First Edition]

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.' His two immediate predecessors in the office had risen to high positions in the state, and Herbert was much involved with the court. During Herbert's academic career, his only published verse was that written for special occasions in Greek and Latin. 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]

Bible. N.T. Greek. 1633.
Apud [B. and A. Elzevir for] Richardum Whittakerum, bibliopolam, 1633. "Surprise" Elzevir New Testament with an interesting production history: Darlow and Moule note that this "London, Whittaker" text was printed by the Elzevir press in Leyden and later sold under their name in 1641, with all but four passages -- three of these taken from the 1576 H. Stephanus' edition -- matching the second Elzevir edition of 1633. The supplementary notes, indeed by R. Whittaker, come however from the 1622 Greek Testament printed by J. Bill of London. Notes by Robert Estienne, Joseph Juste Scaliger, and Isaac Casaubon follow the New Testament. The text is pleasingly printed in two columns using Greek type with numbered verses and woodcut initials at the start of each book; the dedication and some notes appear in Latin with woodcut initials and one decorative headpiece. One of the Elzevirs' "Non solus" printer's devices also appears on the title-page, and this is the edition where *4v contains the last line: "tem opportunitatis . . . Vale." Binding: 18th-century black morocco, spine gilt with spiky-floral compartment stamps surrounded by frames of rules and dots; covers framed in gilt and blind with roll of scallops, dashes, and fillets and with same spine ornament gilt at corners. Turn-ins with gilt floral roll a little extending onto board edges, double-combed marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Provenance: On front free endpaper, 18th-century inked signature of Charles Mays (or Mayo or Mayor) and 19th-century gift inscription "Charles H. Roberts M.A. from Fred Renshaw(e)"; most rec … [Click Below for Full Description]

SEDAN - BIBLE in FRENCH.
Sedan, Jean Jannon, 1633. Small 8vo. Contemporary armorial full black morocco, ornamented in gilt, all edges gilt; ff. 364, 88, 112, [56], printed on fine, thin paper of good quality; wear to corners, one tiny hole to spine, title a little spotted, very faint trace of humidity, first leaf of the NT with marginal paperflaw, affecting only single letters of each line, remargined at a very early date; provenance: endpapers repeatedly inscribed by Rebecca Wollaston, and once by one John Chester, dated 1704. Printed in the independent (up to 1651) Protestant Principality of Sedan in the Ardennes, close to the modern French border with Belgium, this Geneva Bible in French is a rather sensational achievement of French typography and Protestant book production. In 1610 the Parisian master printer Robert III Estienne recommended the printer, librarian and typecutter Jean Jannon to the Prince of Sedan as a talented and Protestant man of the book. Sedan developed into an academy of Protestant erudition with an impressive collection of printed books, manustcripts and works of art. Jannon began to print academic theses, classics and religious works, whilst designing and cutting types in Latin, Greek, Hebrew and Syriac. The type used here, la petite sedanoise, as it became known later, after it had been pirated by a Parisian typecutter, was the smallest type created since the invention of printing. It measures a mere 4.9 points. Jannon reserved this particular type solely for his own use and did not sell it to other printers as he did with other types of his design. The French government … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bible. N.T. English. Rheims?Bishops' version. 1633.
Pr. by Augustine Mathewes on[e] of the assignes of Hester Ogden, London, 1633. When the Jesuit scholars at Rheims succeeded in printing their Catholic translation of the New Testament into English (first edition, 1582), the event affected various English Protestant scholars in different ways: Some were offended or outraged, others intrigued, and yet others spurred to action. William Fulke, of Pembroke College, Cambridge, was among those offended, outraged, and spurred: In 1589 he produced the first edition of his work attempting to refute the Rheims New Testament. His approach, however ? which was to print the Rheims NT in parallel columns with the Bishops' NT (the then accepted version of the Church of England), supplying accompanying notes and explanations ? had unforeseen consequences. As Darlow and Moule comment, "by printing the Rheims Testament in full, side by side with the Bishops' version, [Fulke] secured for the former a publicity which it would not otherwise have obtained, and was indirectly responsible for the marked influence which Rheims exerted on the Bible of 1611." Alan Thomas elaborates by observing that "many a dignified or felicitous phrase was silently lifted by the editors of King James's Version, and thus passed into the language" (Great Books and Book Collectors, p. 108). This is the fourth edition, "wherein are many grosse absurdities corrected." A portrait of William Fulke precedes the engraved title-page, both done by William Marshall. The Biblical text is followed (as issued) by Fulke's Defense of the Sincere and True Translation of the Holy Scri … [Click Below for Full Description]

Prima e rara traduzione completa degli importantissimi Essays, preceduta dalla sola cernita di pochi brani fatta dal Naselli e uscita a Ferrara nel 1590. Nonostante la citazione al frontespizio, Girolamo Canini segnalato solo nell'Avviso sarebbe il vero traduttore, mentre il Ginammi soltanto tipografo con sete di reputazione. L'Apologia legata insieme costituisce invece una continuazione in prima edizione ed è una sorta di esposizione della filosofia scettica di Montaigne. Cfr. Michel-Michel V, 189; Graesse IV, 580. Esemplare più che discreto.

GARCILASO DE LA VEGA
Paris, Augustin Courbé, 1633. 2 volumes in-4, plein veau marbré de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs guillochés or, ornés de compartiments fleuronnés et cloisonnés, pièces de titre de maroquin rouge, roulette dorée sur les coupes, tranches mouchetées rouges, (1) f. de titre, (44), 1319 [i.e. 1309], (34) p. de table, beau frontispice emblématique gravé. Première édition française, dans la traduction de Jean Baudoin, de 'Primera parte de los Commentarios reales', ouvrage publié initialement en espagnol à Lisbonne en 1609. Fils métis d'un compagnon des conquistadores et d'une princesse inca, Garcilaso de la Vega (1539-1617) fut élevé entre les deux cultures. Il voyagea à travers le Pérou pour composer cette œuvre et interrogea aussi bien les natifs que les conquérants. S'il propose au lecteur une vision parfois idyllique du "Tahuantin Suyu" (l'Empire inca), son ouvrage constitue néanmoins la première histoire, de conception moderne, d'une contrée du continent américain, écrite par un natif. A la fois histoire culturelle, matérielle et factuelle, il demeure l'une des sources fondamentales sur la civilisation inca. "Les Commentaires royaux restent un monument littéraire, le seul grand ouvrage historique dû à un métis américain, deux fois noble, témoin humaniste du drame que fut l'effondrement de l'Empire inca et la naissance convulsive d'une société coloniale péruvienne" (Jacques Lafaye, "Encyclopédie Universalis"). Le beau frontispice baroque emblématique représente dans sa partie supérieure une scène de culte public au temple du soleil, qui surplombe des représentations de Manco Cápac e … [Click Below for Full Description]
