        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

        De Symbolis Heroicis Libri IX

      Antwerp: Balthasar Moretus, Plantin Press, 1634., 1634. small 4to. pp. lxxx, 480, [34]index, errata & privilege, [1 leaf]colophon. engraved allegorical title by Cornelis Galle after a design by Peter Paul Rubens, a full-page engraved portrait of dedicatee Cardinal Pietro Luigi Carafa & another full-page engraving of his coat of arms, 7 full-page engravings of blazons & genealogy relating to the Carafa family, 268 half-page engraved devices within borders of varying designs, 13 other text engravings & a few small woodcuts. woodcut ornaments & initials. contemporary vellum, overlapping fore-edges (vellum soiled, marginal wormtrack filled in in last gatherings, few tiny wormholes in 1st 2 leaves, occasional minor spotting). 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.

        Polybii Diodori Siculi Nicolai Damasceni Dionysii Halicar Appiani Alexand Dionis et Ioannis Antiocheni excerpta ex collectaneis Constantini Augusti Porphyrogenetae Henricus Valesius nunc primum Graece Editit [.]

      Mathurini Du Puis, Paris 1634 - 4to. pp. [14], 853, [19], 126. Title in red and black with small crown vignette. Text is in Greek with Latin translation on opposite page. Bound in full red morocco (perhaps later 17th century) with spine gilt in 6 compartments - rubbed, chipped. Hinges and spine caps restored; careful repair to corner tips of front cover. All edges gilt. Pages contain minor scattered foxing and age toning. Inscription written in an old hand on verso of front blank. First printed edition of the "Excerpta Peiresciana" manuscript or "De Virtutuibus et Vitiis," part of a large Byzantine anthology of excerpts which were gathered from earlier Greek historical works and compiled under the direction of the emperor Constantine Porphyrogenitus (905-959 c.e.). The collection was arranged in 53 sections, 4 of which are extant - 1.) "De Legationibus" 2.) "De Virtutibus et Vitiis" 3.) "De Sententiis" 4.) "De Insidiis." In 1582 Fulvius Ursini published "De Legationibus." (Additions were later published by Hoeschel, 1603). [See Sandy's p.397]. In 1634 Henri de Valesius (Valois)(1603-1676), a respected Greek scholar and translator, published "De Virtutibus et Vitiis" (here listed) from a Cyprus manuscript in the possession of M. Peiresc (Excerpta Peiresciana). The excerpts include selections from Polybius, Diodorus Siculus, Nicolas Damascene, Dionysius Halicarnassus, Appianus, and John of Antioch. The excerpts from Polybius's "History" are considered to be the most important as they form an integral part of what we know about the fragmentary sections of this work.

XVII de esta importante obra del siglo de oro. Es ésta una segunda edición con notables añadidos.

También están corregidas algunas de las faltas ortográficas de la primera. Las bibliografías, como PALAU 1601, SALVA 726, JIMENEZ CATALAN 328, no hacen muy claras las distinciones entre las dos.

Holandesa piel del s. XIX. Portada reforzada, y algunas páginas un poco frágiles debido a la mala caldad del papel. Por lo demás, buen ejemplar de este libro raro.Según el CCPB, faltan una portada grabada o un frontispicio, Simón Díaz (XIII. 1718) no los pide; Palau 16101/2 distingue 2 ediciones, ambas impresas en el Hospital Real en 1634. . Según esto la 1ª ed. no lleva frontis., y se citan unos pequeños errores de paginación, por el número de hojas preliminares, etc., por los cuales este ejem. pertenecería a la 2ª ed. Sería, quizás, más correcto llamarlos variantes de la 1ª ed., pequeñas errores que se corrigen en el curso de la impresión, y que hubo ejemplares con o sin frontis. Según la catalogación de la CCPB (y el ejem. de la Menéndez Pelayo, idéntico al nuestro) hay ejemplares que llevan, otros que no llevan el frontis.

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.'

Ce médecin de Castelnaudary, (1588-1658), auteur de nombreux ouvrages d'alchimie, soutient que les travaux d'Hercules sont des allégories contenant les arcanes de la philosophie hermétique. Michael Sendivogius faisait grand cas des écrits de P.J. Fabre. "In Hercules Piochymicus not only the twelve labors of Hercules are interpreted alchemically but also his begetting fifty sons from the fifty daughters of Thespius in a single night and his death from the poisoned robe of Nessus. The conclusion of the all work is an anathema to those who would have alchemy made perfectly plain to fools in words of one syllable, and a request that believers in transmutation await the appearance of his Panchymicus."

        Hercules Piochymicus. In quo penitissima, tum moralis philosophiae tum chymica artis arcana, laboribus Herculis, apud Antiquos tanquam velamine obscuro obruta deteguntur & obvia fiunt & clausa omnia philochyimicis reserantur.

      Toulouse, Pierre Bosc 1634 - In-8 [170 x 108 mm] de (16), 191 pp. Demi-basane brune, dos orné. (Reliure du XIXe.) Première édition. Ce médecin de Castelnaudary, (1588-1658), auteur de nombreux ouvrages d'alchimie, soutient que les travaux d'Hercules sont des allégories contenant les arcanes de la philosophie hermétique. Michael Sendivogius faisait grand cas des écrits de P.J. Fabre. "In Hercules Piochymicus not only the twelve labors of Hercules are interpreted alchemically but also his begetting fifty sons from the fifty daughters of Thespius in a single night and his death from the poisoned robe of Nessus. The conclusion of the all work is an anathema to those who would have alchemy made perfectly plain to fools in words of one syllable, and a request that believers in transmutation await the appearance of his Panchymicus." Thorndike, History of magic & experimental science VII, 194. Marque d'imprimeur de Pierre Bosc sur le titre. Imprimé par Pierre d'Estey selon l'achevé d'imprimé.
