En ella se acumulan importantes juicios históricos y estéticos, si bien unilaterales y polémicos –por ejemplo sobre Luis de Góngora–. “Pese al carácter erudito de este epistolario, se trata de cartas verdaderamente remitidas a sus destinatarios, seleccionadas solo en número de treinta, divididas en tres décadas, de entre las muchísimas que escribió pues el gran humanista murciano tuvo la oportunidad de relacionarse con gran cantidad de hombres de Letras, desde su paisano Saavedra Fajardo a Lope de Vega, que lo cita elogiosamente en el Laurel de Apolo” [Carmen Agulló, El género epistolar] Palau, 47162; Salvá, 2226 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

S. and the Persian Nogdi-beg. As also the two great Monarchs, the King of Persia, and the Great Mogul. Quarto (275 × 183 mm).

A few scrapes to binding, joints split at head and tail, prelims and a couple of gatherings dampstained, closed tear across M3 and N1. An appealing copy complete with the attractive engraved title page and Stansby's colophon printed on a separate leaf at the end. First edition of a wonderful Caroline travel book. "About 1626 [the earl of] Pembroke secured [Herbert] a place in Sir Dodmore Cotton's impending diplomatic mission to Shah Abbas of Persia. After several delays Cotton's party finally sailed from England on 23 March 1627. The mission turned out to be a diplomatic disaster. Both of its leaders, Sir Robert Shirley and Cotton, sickened and died during July 1628, while the shah's enthusiasm for Englishmen cooled. Herbert, along with the other survivors, then made the slow return to England, arriving at Gravesend on 12 January 1630. In the course of his travels he visited the notable Persian cities of Gombroon, Shiraz, Esfahan, Ashraf, Qazvin, and Qom as well as other Asian and African locales such as Surat, Mauritius, the Cape of Good Hope, and St Helena... In 1634 he published the first edition of his book of travels, entitled A description of the Persian monarchy now beinge: the orientall Indyes Iles and other parts of greater Asia and Africk. The book appeared in an expanded second edition in 1638 under the title Some Yeares Travels into Divers Parts of Asia and Afrique. Beginning with the first edition Herbert inserted materials into his narrative about places he had not visited although he sometimes implied that he had, and in each succeeding edition the amount of this second-hand material increased significantly. One particularly famous digression appearing in the first edition onward was his speculation about the medieval Welsh Prince Madoc's discovering and colonizing America. This segment was apparently included to please the earl of Pembroke's own Welsh nationalist fancies... Some Yeares Travels proved sufficiently popular to encourage a Dutch translation in 1658, and a French in 1663. During his years of retirement after the Restoration, Herbert produced expanded third, fourth, and fifth editions in 1665, 1675, and 1677 respectively, and the book continued to be reprinted after his death" (ODNB). The illustrations include a map of Madagascar, a flying fish, "a sharke fish", and the Dodo, about which Herbert comments that "greasie stomackes may seeke after them, but to the delicate, they are offensive and of no nourishment.

        Cortona. Città Antichissima in Toscana Metropoli.

      Roma, 1634 ("in Roma con licenza de Superiori e Privil. del Somo Pont.". Incisione in rame all'acquaforte, b / n, cm 19,3 x 27,6 (alla lastra). Delineta da Piero Berrettini cortonese e disegnata da Giacomo Lauro Romano. In alto a sinistra stemma mediceo a sei palle; altri stemmi poco più in basso, sulla destra del foglio; legenda a quarantanove voci in due riquadri sempre sulla destra, nella parte bassa; in lastra, in basso a sinistra, "L. Lauro Romano f. 1694 . Borgo di S.Vincenzo"; poco più a destra "Piero Berettini Cortonese delin.". Il nome di Piero Berettini si riferisce a Pietro da Cortona, nato appunto come Pietro Berrettini (Cortona, 1569 ? Roma, 1669), celebre pittore e architetto italiano. Non si conosce la data di nascita del Lauro, attivo prevalentemente in ambito romano come incisore, stampatore e conoscitore di antichità tra il 1583 e il 1645. Il fatto che egli firmasse le sue opere come "Jacobus Laurus Romanus" lascia presumere che fosse originario di Roma e, al contempo, rende improbabile l'ipotesi di una possibile provenienza dai Paesi Bassi (Bertolotti, p. 221). Nulla si conosce della sua formazione. La prima testimonianza documentaria che attesta la sua presenza a Roma, in cui è definito "intagliatore di rame romano", risale al 1583; mentre la sua prima stampa conosciuta è un "Tiberio con la daga" (o "Il gladiatore"), pubblicata da C. Duchet nel 1585. Nonostante il Lauro abbia affrontato tematiche storiche, mitologiche e devozionali, è noto soprattutto per la produzione di piante e vedute di città, a cominciare dalla veduta a volo d'uccello di Rocca Contrada (Arcevia), realizzata nel 1594 su disegno di E. Ramazzani (Anselmi). Nel 1599, basandosi su un disegno di Antonio Tempesta, incise e pubblicò una pianta di Roma, ristampata nel 1630, dal titolo "Septem Urbis ecclesiae cum earum reliquiis stationibus et indulgentiis". Negli anni 1630 - '45 il Lauro si dedicò alla pubblicazione di una serie di piante e descrizioni di città italiane e straniere in forma di piccoli opuscoli, alcuni dei quali furono raccolti nel 1639 sotto il titolo di "Heroico splendore delle città del mondo". In ognuno di essi il frontespizio è seguito dalla dedica a un personaggio illustre, dalla pianta corredata di legenda, spesso derivata dall'opera di predecessori, e infine da una breve descrizione della città. Nell'opuscolo intitolato "Historia dell'antichissima città di Cortona in Toscana" del 1639 (Roma, Lodovico Grignani) la pianta della città, datata 1634, reca, oltre alla firma del Lauro, quella di Pietro da Cortona (vedi anche rist. anast., 1981, con il titolo "Dell'origine della città di Cortona in Toscana e sue antichità"). La data di morte del Lauro non è nota. Egli risulta già deceduto nel 1650, quando il teologo S. Gregorowic scriveva al figlio Michele per esprimergli stima e affetto (Ashby, I, p. 365). Rara veduta planimetrica di Cortona. Margini un po' stretti oltre la battuta, un uniforme ingiallimento del foglio e due macchie insistite di umido sul lato sinistro del foglio, peraltro in buona impressione e in buono stato di conservazione.

Scultetus 1566-1624, was predikant en professor in Heidelberg en afgevaardigde naar de Dordtse Synode 1618-1619. In dit werk analyseert hij de theologie en de werken van de meest bekende Kerkvaders. Abraham Scultetus was a Calvinist. He held to the doctrines of predestination and agreed with the Synod of Dort and their doctrinal deliverances. Scultetus was a Superlapsarian, and taught that from his position as professor at Heidelberg. Scultetus denied the imputation of the active obedience of Christ following the teaching of Piscator. Scultetus was chosen as a representative of the Palatinate for the Synod of Dort. Scultetus was a prominent member of that body. He preached a sermon on 122 Psalm on 15 December, an early honor given to him by the Synod. He also gave an address on the "Certainty of Grace" that apparently showed him to be a gifted speaker. Some of held that Scultetus was the most prominent foreigner at the Synod along with George Carleton, Bishop of Llandaff from England. He agreed with the condemnation of the Remonstrants and the doctrinal decrees of the Synod.).

        Insectorum sive Minimorum Animalium Theatrum: Olim ab Edoardo Wottono, Conrado Gesnero, Thomaque Pennio inchoatum ...

      Londini, ex Officina typographica Thom. Cotes, 1634. Folio (285 x 175mm). pp. (20), 326, (4), title-page with woodcut of a bee hive surrounded by various insects and about 500 woodcuts in the text. Recent half calf, gilt lettered spine, marbled sides. First edition in third issue, with the same collation as given by Lisney (Bibliography of British Lepidoptera, p. 8), who also amply describes the other issues and the interesting and complicated genesis of the work. It is the first book dealing entirely with Entomology to be published in the British Isles. "Ulysses Aldrovandi's 'De Animalibus insectis' (1602) was the first book to be devoted to insects... It was followed by Thomas Moffet's (1525-1605) 'Theatrum Insectorum' in 1634. The manuscript of this remarkable work, the first book on insects to appear in England, was actually begun before Aldrovandi's but its publication was delayed; however when it eventually appeared the book proved to be very successful and sold well... The woodcuts in the printed work are superior to those in the Aldrovandi work, and many of the butterflies can be identified" (P. Gilbert p. 2). Moffet's work remained unpublished during his lifetime, the manuscript eventuelly came into the hands of the physician and scholar, Sir Theodore de Mayerne who was able to find a publisher. A few leaves at the beginning bound in the wrong order. Title-page with restoration at the inner margin and one corner and following leaf with small repair at corner. The last two (unnumbered) leaves depict only woodcuts and are bound here before page 323. Manuscript ownership on title.//Nissen ZBI, 2852.

        DS - Bedeutende Quellen zum Dreißigjährigen Krieg. Die berühmten Pilsener Reverse - sowie ein weiteres zugehöriges Dokument in den Original-Handschriften aus dem Gräflich Schaffgottschen Archiv.

      . 3 Manuskripte, zusammen 15 1/4 Seiten folio.. Hs I Pilsen, 12.I.1634, 5 Seiten folio, mit den Unterschriften von 49 wallensteinischen Offizieren und papiergedecktem Siegel des Feldmarschalls Christian von Ilow über roter Seidenschnur. 3 beidseitig beschriebene Blätter, ein viertes Blatt leer, ebenso der Umschlag. (1r Text; 1v Text; 2r Text; 2v Text und Unterschriften; 3r Unterschriften und Siegel; 3v Stempel "Reichsgräfl. Schaffgottsche Majoratsbibliothek zu Warmbrunn" und "Standesherrl. Cameralamt zu Hermsdorf" sowie Signatur; 4r+v vacat.) - - Der erste "Pilsener Revers" oder "Pilsener Schluss" mit dem persönlichen Treueeid der einberufenen Offiziere auf ihren Generalissimus Wallenstein, der zuvor mit seinem Abschied gedroht hatte. Zu den Unterzeichnern zählen auch Ottavio Piccolomini, der zu diesem Zeitpunkt schon Wallensteins Absetzung betrieb, und mit Butler und Gordon zwei der späteren Mörder Wallensteins (nicht erschienen waren die ebenfalls geladenen Heerführer Gallas, Aldringen und Colloredo). - Das bedingungslose Treuegelöbnis für Wallenstein wird in Wien als letzter Beweis für dessen Verrat am Kaiser angesehen, am 24. Januar wird der Generalissimus per Geheimpatent ab- und Gallas als Höchstkommandierender eingesetzt. - Unter dem Eindruck der Bedrohung, wenn auch ohne Kenntnis des am Vortag ergangenen verschärften Absetzungsbefehls des Kaisers haben zu können, erklärt Wallenstein am 19. Februar seine Treue gegenüber dem Kaiser und verwahrt sich gegen die Deutung, der Revers vom 12. Januar sei gegen den Kaiser gerichtet. Ein nicht unterzeichnetes Protokoll hält die Reaktionen von 33 Offizieren auf Wallensteins Erklärung fest: - - Hs II Pilsen, 19.II.1634, 6 ? Seiten folio. 4 beidseitig beschriebene Blätter, von alter Hand am Kopf foliiert 33-35. (1r-4r beschrieben, 4v vacat.) - - Protokoll der "Vota" von 33 bei Ilow zusammengekommenen Offiziere, mit denen sie Wallensteins Treueerklärung gegenüber Kaiser und Reich annehmen und unterstützen. - Am Tag nach diesen informellen Erklärungen wird ein offizielles, für Wien bestimmtes Dokument aufgesetzt. Das Verhängnis soll aufgehalten werden, indem der "mißverstandene" Revers vom 12. Januar ins rechte Licht gesetzt wird: - - Hs III Pilsen, 20.II.1634, 4 Seiten folio, mit den Unterschriften von Wallenstein und 32 seiner Offiziere. 3 beidseitig beschriebene Blätter mit Umschlag. Blätter und Umschlag lose. (1r Text; 1v Text; 2r Text; 2v Text und Unterschriften; 3r Unterschriften; 3v Stempel "Reichsgräfl. Schaffgottsche Majoratsbibliothek zu Warmbrunn" und "Standesherrl. Cameralamt zu Hermsdorf" sowie Signatur.) - Der zweite Pilsener Schluß, in dem Wallenstein und die noch bei ihm verbliebenen Offiziere ihre Treue zu Kaiser und katholischer Religion erklären. - - Zwei Tage später bricht Wallenstein nach Eger auf, am 25. Februar wird er dort in seinem Schlafzimmer ermordet; unmittelbar vor ihm waren seine engsten Getreuen Ilow, Kinsky und Adam Trcka umgebracht worden. Sechs der Unterzeichner vom 12. Januar wurden wegen ihres Verrats an Kaiser und Reich unter Anklage gestellt. Die Anklage gegen Herzog Heinrich Julius von Sachsen-Lauenburg wird fallengelassen; Haimerl, Losy, Sparr und Scherffenberg werden zum Tode verurteilt und bald begnadigt; nur das Todesurteil gegen Graf Schaffgotsch, aus dessen Archiv die vorliegenden Dokumente stammen, wird im Juli 1635 vollstreckt. - - Angesichts der Wirrnisse, denen die Handschriften in fast 4 Jahrhunderten ausgesetzt waren, ist ihr Zustand noch bemerkenswert gut. Ränder und Falten - insbesondere die Bugfalten - weisen Einrisse und kleine Abbrechungen auf, Hs I darüber hinaus ein kleines Rostloch in Bl 1. - - Ausführliche Beschreibung auf Wunsch!

        The most ancient and famous history of the renowned Prince Arthur King of Britaine,

      London: by William Stansby, for Jacob Bloome,, 1634. Wherein is declared his Life and Death, with all his glorious Battailes against the Saxons, Saracens and Pagans, which (for the honour of his Country) he most worthily atchieved. As also, all the Noble Acts, and Heroicke Deeds of his Valiant Knights of the Round Table. Newly refined and published for the delight, and profit of the Reader. Small quarto (177 × 134 mm). Contemporary English dark calf ruled in blind, unlettered, spine with four raised bands. Brown morocco-backed folding case. In three parts, each with separate title-page and woodcut frontispiece. Without the final blanks in parts I and II, as usual. Printed in black letter, with roman and italic prelims, headlines, rubrics and proper names. Some contemporary manuscript notes to title leaf both recto and verso, including the name John Yates; other occasional early ink marginalia throughout; armorial bookplate of the Trotter family of Mortonhall, Scotland (showing arms granted 29 June 1676). Binding worn in places, spine chipped at foot, remnants of glue to front free endpaper. Frontispiece of part I remargined at fore and lower edge with no loss of text; final leaf of part III with blank lower third torn away and replaced without loss of text; a little minor worming at foot in part II, only affecting a few letters on two pages; a very good copy. Sixth edition, the earliest practically obtainable. Malory's Morte Darthur (the familiar title was accidentally given by its first printer, William Caxton, who mistook the name of its last section for the name of the whole), though in part a translation, is so woven together from a wide variety of sources that it is effectively an original work. Malory called what he wrote The Whole Book of King Arthur and his Noble Knights of the Round Table. As his title implies, he intended to retell in English the entire Arthurian story from authoritative accounts, which for him meant primarily the three major cycles of French Arthurian prose romance, although he knew many other Arthurian stories (including late medieval English alliterative poems) and drew on them for incidents, allusions, and minor characters that give his story additional solidity. Completed in prison by 1470, the Morte Darthur was first published by Caxton in 1485, reprinted by Wynken de Worde in 1498 and 1529, and by William Copland in 1557 and Thomas East in 1578. This sixth edition is the last of this early sequence and has the language modernized to Jacobean standards: that is, to Early Modern English. Only one complete copy of any earlier edition has come to auction since 1975: the fifth edition (Thomas East, 1578) in contemporary blindstamped calf which brought £22,000 hammer at Christie's in 1991. With that single exception, this is the earliest practically obtainable edition, and it is rare in a contemporary binding: those few copies that do come to market are almost invariably found in much later bindings.

STC 1577. Wellcome, I, 714. Michael White, Isaac Newton. The Last Sorcerer. 1998 pp.20-21, 27.FIRST EDITION OF THIS ENCYCLOPAEDIC TECHNICAL COMPENDIUM FROM WHICH ISAAC NEWTON AS A BOY DISCOVERED THE ELEMENTS OF EXPERIMENTATION AND PRACTICAL SKILLS. "Isaac Newton discovered this book when he was about thirteen years of age. He was totally captivated by it and spent 2 1/2d on an exercise book into which he copied out long passages. Bate?s book, first published in 1634, was full of detailed instructions for making wonderful machines and devices, and it was from following these that the teenage Newton was able to design and build working mechanical models for which he gained something of a reputation as a schoolboy. Some 70 years later, Stukeley was able to find a few folk who still remembered Newton?s miraculous models ?" windmills that actually worked...perfectly functioning sundials; and paper lanterns with which he found his way to school on dark winter mornings". Michael White.John Bate?s encyclopaedic technical compendium is divided into four parts ?" water-works, fireworks, drawing and painting, and miscellaneous experiments. Little is known of the author, though the second edition carries a portrait. The first part on water-works describes various ingenious machines including of drawing water by Engines, the making of an Engin, whereby you may draw water out of a deepe Well, experiments of motions by rarifying ayre by fire, an artificiall water-clock, an engine to force water to the top of a hill, a water-presser. The second part on fireworks [the woodcut on the title of the ?green man? garlanded in foliage and wielding a fire club who traditionally from medieval times led processions of fireworkers] begins with an introduction to the basic principles of the nature of elements in choosing ingredients for fireworks. He then gives directions and guidance on the composition of various kinds of fireworks including how to make rockets, serpents, rayning fire, fire boxes, Gironells or fire wheeles, flying Dragon, fire Drakes (a firework kite), Balloones, Crackers, Saucissons, fire-lances, rockets for the water, a Dolphin. The third part is devoted to Drawing, Limming, Colouring and Graving. It includes guidance on how to mix and create colours such as purple, crane colour, hayre colour motile greene, browne blew, brasse, azure, Lyon-tawny. Also advice to make good Inke and of painting in Oyle, as well as of Gravers and of Etching. The final book Of Extravagants includes bizarre ways to catch birds and fish, how to lay gold on glass, how to make a light burne under the water, to make yron as soft as lead, a cement as hard as stone, marbled paper, glue, work in glass, invisible ink, coral, saltpetre, and recipes for treating a wide range of ailments from a water for toothache, curing an ulcer, to a good powder for the gout.There was an expanded second edition in 1635 and a further augmented but poorly printed edition in 1654

First Edition. "Balthasar Moretus I (d. 1641) was the grandson of Christopher Plantin and worthily carried on the printing traditions of the great Antwerp firm after the death of his father, Jan Moretus, in 1610. This well-written emblem book dates from the period when both Catholics and Protestants had realized that this type of book, formerly produced for the frivolous pleasure of courtiers, was equally suitable for the allegorical interpretation of spiritual truths. The frontispiece, as in many books printed by Moretus, is engraved by Cornelis Galle the Elder after a design by Rubens, but the Plantin-Moretus archives reveal that the emblems which are exhibited were evidently originally engraved on copper by artists in the employ of the Jesuit fathers and then re-worked for Moretus between December 1633 and June 1634 by the skilled hand of André Pauwels." (PMM) Among the emblems of the famous and virtuous appears the Plantin Press compass device with motto ‘Labore et Constantia’ (p. 382), and among the illustrations is a depiction of the magnetic clock constructed by the English Jesuit scientist, Francis Line, at Liège (p. 146).The work is dedicated to Pietro Luigi Carafa, papal nuncio at Cologne, by the author, a Jesuit priest who was Carafa’s confessor. There follows a long preface with an extensive genealogical account of Carafa’s family. Landwehr, Low Countries, 498. Printing and the Mind of Man (Fine Printing) 86. Praz p. 455.

Laurence (or Lawrence) Anderton, alias Lawrence Scrope (1577-1643), was a learned English Jesuit, a missionary priest for some forty years 'in times of difficulty and danger' and an accomplished recusant writer. This influential polemical work defending Catholicism against protestant and Anglican critique, was published at the Jesuit College of St. Omer, 24 miles from Calais, France, when all Catholic education and publishing was then prohibited in England. In it, according to one contemporary review, Anderton 'endeavors to demonstrate the heads of the Roman Catholic faith in three ways - from the Scriptures, from the exposition of the Fathers and from the consent of the Protestants themselves.' A rare and important issue with a splendid shelf appearance. ~Z~ [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
