BÉTHUNE (Philippe de)].
Paris, Estienne Richer, 1633, plein vélin moderne, genre ancien. -Rousseurs éparses, qq. ff. uniformément roussis, marge ext. du 2e f. lég. déchirée sans manque. petit in-4 de (4)-24-496 pp. ; 2e édition (E.O. : 1632).En fait, il s'agit probablement d'une 2e émission de l'édition originale, dans laquelle les erreurs de pagination ont été corrigées.Bourgeois et André, S.H.F. 6094 ; Joël Cornette, Affirmation de l'Etat absolu, 1492-1652, p. 252."Jusqu’en 1665, ce traité fut publié sans nom d’auteur. [.] 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]

ARISTEAS [ascribed to].
London, N. Okes, 1633. 12mo. 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.

HERBERT, GEORGE
Cambridge: T. Buck, and R. Daniel, 1633. Second Edition. Contemorary full sheep. Very Good. 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.'

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.

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.

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").

Prynne, William
London: Printed by E. A. and W. I. for Michael Sparke, 1633. First Edition. Second state, with errata on ***4 verso. Quarto (pages 178 x 139 mm), collating: [xxxiv], 512, ff. 513-568, 545-832, [ii], 831-1006, [xl], complete. Bound in a 19th century full morocco binding, marbled end papers, all edges gilt. Some wear to the outer joints and at the crown, otherwise binding holding well. Title page trimmed close, with publisher's imprint a bit trimmed, date still visible, no other leaves with text affected. Generally a clean copy internally, with the close cropping on the title page being the main issue. Infamous Puritan polemicist William Prynne issues the almost 1,000 page Histrio-Mastix as the ultimate denunciation of Caroline theater in all its forms -- from public plays, to dancing, to private masques. Of particular concern to Prynne was the practice of cross-dressing on stage, made necessary because only men could be licensed as professional actors and therefore played all parts. He declared that cross-dressing "perverts one principal use of garments, to difference men from women: by confounding, interchanging, transforming these two sexes for the present, as long as the play or part doth last." The result, he argued, was a rise in unnatural lusts within both actors and the audience, and a breakdown of clear gender identities or attractions. Not to leave out women, Prynne also issued a critique of King Charles I and Queen Henrietta Maria, who regularly hosted private masques in the Banqueting House at White Hall Palace and at Somerset House. Henrietta Maria and her ladies … [Click Below for Full Description]

Significantly enlarged second edition of Jonston's popular scientific work on 'admiranda' or wonders of nature organized into ten categories (heaven, earth, meteors, 'fossils' (for the most part precious stones) or minerals, plants, birds, quadrupeds, insects and 'bloodless' animals, fish, and humans) heavily referencing classical sources such as Aristotle, Pliny, and Seneca.  Imitating the style of earlier scientific compendia, the Thaumatographia keeps up with the times; including the more recent work of Aldrovandi, discussing the flora and fauna (and tobacco) found in the New World, a section on the activity of the heart and its role in the cardiovascular system, and is up to date with meteor sightings to 1629. Finally, by pairing these more exciting discoveries concerning the body and the heavens with discussion of topics in natural history, Jonston helped breathe new life into that branch of learning. Each section is headed by a useful index of its contents, and the work concludes with a poem in praise of Jonston by the Bohemian poet Vencleslaus Clemens.

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). 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 et Mama Ocllo, enfants du di … [Click Below for Full Description]

Chumacero y Carrillo, Juan; Pimentel, Domingo:
[Madrid?] [?] 1633 - Folio, pp. [4] 160 (i.e. 158) [2]. With first and final blanks. Woodcut initials and tail-piece. Text in printed compartments. First bifolium loosening, light browning, spotting and foxing, still a good, clean, generously-margined copy, bound in contemporary or early stiffened vellum, ruled in gilt with gilt corner-pieces to covers and gilt decorations to spine, binding slightly dusty and spotted, loosening from text block at top joint, bottom cover with tears, along sides, at lower joint, and on surface (with loss of vellum). Title with old monogram ink stamp surmounted by crown. First edition of this text revealing a celebrated diplomatic spat, following a Spanish embassy to Rome of 1633. The Spanish authors (Fray Domingo Pimentel, bishop of Cordoba and his secretary Juan Chumaçero y Carrillo) take issue in this report with the poor administration, and the venality and corruption that they encounter in the holy city. Most distressing is (p. 29) the claim that because Roman priests cannot make wills, they have no heirs to support them when they are ill, and they are given no food or drink and die. The charges are countered (pp. 41-53) by the Vatican Secretary, Maraldi, who, this being a Spanish publication, is naturally then refuted thoroughly (pp. 55-160). The authors emphasise Spain's role in the Catholic world. "[The Spanish Crown] has conquered a new world to the faith, and is always continuing the promulgation of the Gospel in new kingdoms and provinces of the East and West Indies, expending its treasure and vassals on this.

Hippocrates, Nicolaas Fonteyn,
Typis Iacobi Carpentier,, Amsteldami, 1633. In 12° (12,3×7 cm); (12), 125, (1) pp. Bella ed elegante legatura coeva in piena pelle chiara con titolo impressi in oro al dorso su fascette rosse. Dorso a 5 nervi. A c. D2 inizia con proprio occhietto: Tractatus de extractione foetus mortui per uncum di Nicolao Fontano. Bella Marca al frontespizio in cornice mano che impuga una spada e motto Ancho Raspel. Esemplare in ottime condizioni di conservazione. Rarissima edizione, tre soli esemplari censiti in ICCU, di questo celeberrimo testo di medicina e pediatria che, oltre a contenere i famosi aforismi di Ippocrate, presenta anche la prima edizione dell’opera dell’importante medico olandese, Nicolaas Fonteyn, dedicata all’estrazione dei feti morti. Fonteyn, geniale medico, ebbe però una brevissima vita che gli permise di pubblicare solo poche opere. Noto galenista, il suo lavoro ispirò altri grandi medici come ad esempio, Henry Vaughan a proposito dei libri del quale si legge in "The fact that he recorded notes in the Fonteyn and the Hippocrates-one a primer of medicine and the other a basic work on pediatrics, both pocket-sized and easily portable-tells us something about his medical interests and practice" nell’opera "Henry Vaughan’s Medical Annotations", Donald R. Dickson. Esemplare in bella legatura coeva ed in ottime condizioni di conservazione.

A very good, clean, well margined copy in contemporary English calf, sympathetically rebacked c. 1900, covers bordered with single blind and gilt rules, spine with raised bands, gilt ruled in compartments with gilt fleurons, all edges speckled red. 1st edn. of the first complete set of trigonometrical tables, "containing the natural sines, tangents and secants to the one hundredth part of a degree and to 15 places, which have never been superseded by any subsequent calculations". The work arose out of discussions between Briggs, professor of geometry at Gresham College, and the great Scots mathematician John Napier, the inventor of logarithms, who in 1614 had published his 'Mirifici Logarithmorum Canonis Descriptio'. Napier agreed to suggestions by Briggs for adapting his invention more readily to the construction of tables, and the result, entailing prodigious labour, was Briggs's 'Arithmetica Logarithmica' (1624) and the present work. It is clear that the scale of logarithms now in use, in which 1 is the logarithm of the ratio 10 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Monique Rollin in Grove Music Online.A rare and desirable print.

SALA, ANGELO (ANGELUS).
- Güstrow (Rostock), Joachim Fuess in Verlegung Johan Hallervords, 1633. Small 8vo. Later, modest clothbacked marbled boards. Without pagination. (320) pp. Very light browning and a few scattered brownspots. Scarce first edition of an importent work on the borderline of chemistry and medicine. Osler states that he "was one of the founders of modern chemistry"."Sala (following Paracelsus) defined the Spagyric Art as that part of chemistry which has for its subject the natural bodies, vegetable, animal, and mineral, and such operations as tend to the end of rendering them useful in medicine. its principal operations are separation, subtilisation, and sublimation." (Partington)."He was an able physician and an excellent chemist, an admirer and to some extent a follower of Paracelsus, an advocate of chemical remedies, an opponent of quackery, and he was able to judge fairly the merits both of the chemical and Galenic systems of medicine then in conflict. Concring calls him the first of the chemists who was free from triffling; (Ferguson)."Considering his work as a whole, it is evident that Sala was above all a practitioner. In his view, demonstrations could be carried out only through manual operations (inventionibus manualibus), that is to say, only with the aid of experimental examples, which he clearly distinguished from argumentation. For him, chemistry was still a handicraft (ars)."(DSB).Ferguson II, p. 314. - Partington II, p. 277. - Duveen, p. 526. - Not in Neville. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
