        Morte d'Arthur:) The Most Ancient and Famous History of the Renowned Prince Arthur King of Britaine, .,

      Printed for William Stansby for Iacob Bloome, London 1634 - 4to. Three parts in one volume. Each part commences with its own title page and woodcut frontispiece of the Round Table. Sixth edition of Malory's Morte d'Arthur and the first edition obtainable. It was preceded by Caxton, 1485; De Worde, 1498 & 1529; Copland, 1557 and East, 1578, none of which are available barring a new discovery. The establishment of the Commonwealth under Cromwell spelled the end of editions of Malory and other books favoring the monarchy until 1816. This copy bound in a well executed nineteenth century unsigned binding of full brown morocco, spine in six compartments with raised bands, all gilt; gilt rules on the boards and all edges gilt. The binding is in fine condition. Complete except for a remargining and restoration of the frontispiece to Part III. The first thing to check with the 1634 Malory is how many pages are defective or in facsimile; usually there are several. This copy is entirely complete with only the frontispiece woodcut of Part II remargined at the fore-edge and bottom edge, and with the top outer corner restored with a few words in fine manuscript facsimile to match the printed type. The only other defect we have noted is an old stain (candle soot?) on Part I, leaf Ff2. (Some catalogues note the lack of the final blank in Part II, leaf Rr2, but this leaf is not called for and Part II in this copy ends correctly with leaf Rr1. )This is essentially a near fine, complete copy of the earliest edition of the Morte d'Arthur obtainable.STC 806; ESTC S100230; Printing and the Mind of Man, 29, for the Caxton printing.

        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 [.]

      Paris Mathurini Du Puis 1634. First Edition 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.

Elle parut originellement en 1633, et aucune de ses éditions n'est vraiment courante. Son auteur, Friedrich Spanheim (1600-1649), dit l'Ancien pour le différencier de son fils cadet, était un théologien calviniste de stricte observance, qui enseigna à Genève de 1626 à 1642. Il fut le père d'Ezechiel Spanhaim (1629-1710), le diplomate bien connu, qui représenta neuf ans la Cour de Brandebourg à Versailles et Paris.

Con la condena de Galileo en 1633 se dejaba el camino expedito para el desarrollo de la astronomía en el norte de Europa que llevaría a Newton. Este tratado fue uno de los primeros en proponer abiertamente el sistema copernicano. Blaeu quien había estudiado astronomía, matemáticas y la confección de globos con Tycho Brahe, maestro de Kepler, había abrazado la hipótesis heliocéntrica de Copérnico. Creía, sin embargo, que el estudio del sistema de Ptolomeo podría ser útil como introducción a la cosmografía, así que en su tratado describió la construcción de una esfera que lo representaba. La construcción de estas esferas forma parte de la gloriosa época de la construcción de globos que se inicia en Holanda a principios del siglo XVII. En la segunda parte de su obra Blaeu describe la esfera del sistema copernicano diseñada por él que fue la primera de este tipo que se construyó. En el prefacio al tratado, el traductor al latín, Martinus Hortensius, defensor e importante propagador de la astronomía copernicana, alaba la novedad que es representar el sistema heliocéntrico por medio de globos. Comenta que los escritos de Copérnico eran demasiado oscuros para que pudieran ser entendidos por la mayoría de los lectores y si se hubiese representado su sistema antes de forma gráfica, tal como lo había hecho Blaeu, no hubiera sido condenado como absurdo.[EXTREMELY RARE FIRST EDITION OF THIS WORK WHICH DESCRIBES THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE FIRST GLOBE TO REPRESENT THE COPERNICAN SYSTEM (published in Latin and Dutch in the same year) : Krogt cites only 5 copies. Published in the same year as Blaeu's magnum opus the "Atlas Novus", this classic treatise on the use of globes, spheres and sundials gives an account of the competing Ptolomaic and Copernican systems. The sentencing of Galileo to life imprisonment in 1633 for his pro-Copernican writings left the way open for the development of astronomy in northern Europe. This treatise was one of the first to openly defend the Copernican system. Blaeu, who had studied astronomy, mathematics, and globe-making with Tycho Brahe, Kepler's teacher, had accepted the Copernican hypotheses. He believed, however, that the Ptolomaic sytem could be useful as an introduction to cosmography and so illustrated the construction of a globe which represented it. In the second part of the work he describes the new sphere of the Copernican system which he had designed and which was the first of such spheres to be made available. The construction of these globes is part of the great history of globe making in Holland that began in the XVIIth century. Martinus Hortensius, the translator into latin of this treaty, who himself made an important contribution to diffusion of Copernican astronomy, welcomes in his preface the completely new way of explaining the heliocentric system through a system of globes. The writings of Copernicus himself, he comments, are too obscure to be understood by everyone and had the Copernican system been presented graphically sooner as it had been by Blaeu, it would not have been condemned as absurd. The manual, partly designed for the use of mariners reflects the trading interests of the Dutch and contains references to Brazil and other parts of South America]. ASTRONOMÍA

        Rimas humanas y diuinas del licenciado Tome de Burguillos: no sacadas de biblioteca ninguna (que en castellano se llama libreria) sino de papeles de amigos y borradores suyos. Por frey Lope Felix de Vega Carpio.

      en la Imprenta del Reyno: a costa de Alonso Perez ,, Madrid, 1634 - 8 hojas incluyendo un retrato grabado a plena página, 160 folios. Encuadernación moderna en pergamino de protección. Correcto ejemplar aunque con hojas amarronadas por mala calidad del papel, en *3 y M1 una pequeña falta de papel marginal por el mismo motivo sin afectar. Palau 356512. David A. Gomez, (Auto)parodia y renovación en "Las Rimas humanas y divinas de Tomé de Burguillos", Thesaurus 1, 1996. Macarena Cuiñas Gómez, Historia textual del Burguillos, Hesperia, Anuario de filología hispánica X, 2007. Las Rimas de Tomé de Burguillos es un poemario de Lope de Vega publicado en 1634 (entre diciembre de 1634 o primeros meses de 1635 a juzgar por las fechas de sus textos preliminares, que remiten a los meses de agosto, septiembre y noviembre). Se trata del último libro que Lope compuso, revisó para la imprenta y vio publicado en vida, puesto que la muerte le sobrevino el 27 de agosto de 1635.El uso de la palabra rimas en el título es una herencia petrarquista y hace referencia a una variedad de metros y estilos que, sin embargo, responden a una unidad estructural; por lo que respecta al nombre de Tomé de Burquillos, se trata de un álter ego ficticio de Lope que este presenta como autor de las rimas, de las que él solo sería el compilador.Se trata de 179 poemas (la gran mayoría, sonetos, y entre los que se encuentra el poema narrativo La Gatomaquia) que fueron reunidos por Lope en su época de vejez (conocida literariamente como ciclo de senectute), una etapa vital en la que el poeta repasa su existencia, marcada por un amor tardío (Marta de Nevares), por problemas económicos, por su frustración por no ser enteramente reconocido como poeta culto y por dramas personales (muerte de su hijo Lope y fuga con un galán de su hija adolescente Antonia Clara) que le sumen en la tristeza.No todos los poemas del libro fueron escritos en fechas cercanas a la de su publicación, sino que, algunos, lo fueron bastante antes; en todo caso, Lope sometió a este material a una revisión para adecuarlos al estilo general de la obra en la que aparecerían compilados.De acuerdo con el título, y según el contenido, las Rimas se estructuran en dos partes: por un lado, las rimas humanas (poemas de tema profano entre los que se incluyen, además de unos pocos más, 161 sonetos y La Gatomaquia), y, por otro, las rimas divinas (once poemas de tema religioso).En primera instancia, el tono general del poemario es burlesco, con una intención general lúdica, de entretenimiento. Subyace a esto un interés concreto por parodiar o ironizar determinados temas, especialmente las exageraciones y estereotipos frecuentados por dos estilos literarios: el petrarquismo y el gongorismo. En uno y otro caso, el objetivo de Lope es reivindicar un estilo sencillo y natural, con calidad de culto, del que Garcilaso de la Vega sería el mejor ejemplo.

Par Sinibal de Spadacine, de Chasteanneuf, Astrologue l&#39;Estat de Milan

      A Paris, Chez Mathurin Biesmon... & en sa Bouticque soubz les Charniers des SS, Innocents au puits Sainct Iean, 1634. Small 8vo (in 4s), 163 x 100 mms., pp. 142 (?of 144), curious woodcut on verso of title-page, two full-page woodcuts of palmistry, and 22 woodcuts in text of astrological months, recently rebound, rather crudely, in quarter vellum, plain boards, ink title on spine; text occasionally just disappears into inner margin, but readable, some restoration of several leaves, a rather fragile text, and lacking the last leaf. Spadacine&#39;s work was one of the most popular and accessible of all the early 17th century French books on astrology and fortune-tellling. First published in 1606, it continued to be reprinted in various forms well into the 18th century and often issued in a size to fit a pocket. The present copy is unrecorded, not traced in any library, so it might lack more leaves than one, but the text ends on S3 and one more leaf would complete the gathering as the book is printed in half-sheets. The text, though unfinished, does contain "la cognoissance de bonne & mauvaise fortune," the last item on the title-page description of contents, complete, the last verso being "touchant le jugement."

        The Historie of the World, in Five Bookes&#133;

      London: G. Lathum, and R. Young,, 1634. Folio (338 × 216 mm). Contemporary calf, rebacked, red morocco label. Allegorical engraved half-title by Renold Elstrack, dated 1614, explanatory text, "The Minde of the Front" bound facing, portrait of Ralegh to the title page, 6 double-page, copper-engraved maps and 2 similar battle-plans by William Hole, two pedigrees to the text, woodcut head- and tailpieces, historiated initials. A little rubbed at the extremities, free endpapers somewhat creased, light toning, a few paper flaws and splits, no loss, and light damping at the margins, but overall a very good copy. First published 1617. The major literary production of Ralegh&#39;s period of imprisonment, "a substantial work, of about a million words, in five books, running from the creation of the world to 146 BC, the time of the second Macedonian war. The first two books are principally, though not wholly, concerned with biblical history, the last three mainly with the story of Greece and Rome" (ODNB). Begun in 1607 and entered in the Stationer&#39;s Register in 1611, first publication should have been in 1614, but Ralegh&#39;s use of history as a "moral exemplum", one central theme being the "general wickedness of kings and the severity of God&#39;s judgement upon them", led to its suppression by the Archbishop of Canterbury as "too sawcie in censuring princes". All copies were seized by the king&#39;s agents for his own use. However, the suppression was soon lifted and the Historie was reprinted in 1617, and remained extremely popular with at least 11 editions produced in the seventeenth century.

Large woodcut beehive on title page surrounded on three sides by various insects, large and small entomological woodcuts in the text, including four full pages at the end, in all, A TOTAL OF 598 WOODCUT IMAGES OF INSECTS IN THE TEXT. Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Rolle and notes in an old hand, first endpaper with the bookplate of H. F. Norman, M.D. (see below). Norman 1528 (the present copy); Nissen 2852; Garrison-Morton 288; STC 17993. Spine a little scuffed, minor abrasions on covers, slight wear to corners, but the binding solidly restored and perfectly satisfactory. Title leaf with neatly mended arching tear (just reaching into the imprint, without loss), leaves with just a breath of browning at edges, but IN FINE CONDITION INTERNALLY, the text especially fresh and clean. This is the first state of the first edition of a pioneering entomological work--the first book on insects published in England--offered here in a copy with fine provenance. Garrison-Morton says that our copiously illustrated volume, based on Moffett&#39;s extensive travels, "was the best work of its kind and it set a new standard of accuracy in the study of the invertebrates." As Norman indicates, the book is a careful and thorough study that "systematically analyzed the habits, habitat, breeding and economic importance of insects." The work had a convoluted genesis. It originated with an unfinished study by Conrad Genser (1516-65), after whose death his assistant Thomas Penny (died 1589) fleshed the work out with his own observations, along with material from the notes of Edward Wotton (1492-1555). But like Genser, Penny died before his work could be published. Moffett, Penny&#39;s neighbor and close friend, acquired the manuscript and further added to it, but again death intervened, and it was not until Sir Theodore Mayerne (1573-1655) bought it from Moffett&#39;s apothecary that the work saw the light of day. Thomas Moffett (or "Moffet," 1553-1604) was educated at Cambridge and in Basel, where he took a degree in medicine. He journeyed to Italy, Spain, Germany, and Denmark, making careful notes on the local insects as he travelled. He established a medical practice in Ipswich and London and served as physician to Queen Elizabeth&#39;s forces in Normandy in 1591. A friend of Sir Francis Drake and the earl of Pembroke, Moffett authored medical and entomological works, including a poem on the silkworm. Our copy is from the celebrated library of the physician and bibliophile Haskell F. Norman, whose books are known for their fine condition (books with the "Rolle" bookplate seen here are equally renowned for being well preserved). Although woodcut illustrations were chosen instead of copper engravings in order to save money, they have a charm and suitability for their subject here that would be absent, had the other method of illustration been selected.

        Gioco del Ponte a Pisa

      Acquaforte, 1634, firmata e datata in lastra in basso a destra. Da un soggetto di Stefano della Bella. Esemplare nel primo stato di tre, avanti l?indirizzo di De Rossi e la data 1649. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, tracce di colla al verso e di una piega di carta verticale, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Nato a Firenze nel 1610, Anton Francesco Lucini si forma nello stimolante ambiente artistico della città toscana. Lucini diviene allievo dell'affermato incisore francese Jacques Callot, che in quegli anni è attivo in Toscana sotto la protezione di Cristina di Lorena. Negli stessi anni Lucini frequenta e collabora con il coetaneo Stefano della Bella di cui imita lo stile e il repertorio tematico. In questo periodo, Lucini lavora soprattutto su disegni di altri, alternando l'illustrazione di libri a quella di stampe. Si possono ricordare la serie di incisioni intitolata Disegni della guerra, assedio dell'armata turchesca all'Isola di Malta l'anno MDXLV che raccontano l'assedio di Malta del 1565 ad opera delle truppe turche di Solimano il Magnifico, sedici acqueforti pubblicate a Bologna nel 1631 e tratte dagli affreschi di Matteo Perez d'Aleccio conservati nella Sala di San Michele e San Giorgio, conosciuta anche come Sala del Trono, nel Palazzo del Gran Maestro a La Valletta. Mentre è del 1634 Il gioco del Ponte di Pisa pubblicato a Roma e realizzato da Lucini su disegno dell'amico e concittadino Stefano della Bella. Intorno al 1624 Lucini viene incaricato dal cartografo e navigatore inglese Robert Dudley, che dal 1605 vive a Firenze e presta servizio come consigliere navale per il Granducato di Toscana, di realizzare l'atlante marino Dell'Arcano del Mare, il primo che copra tutto il mondo fino ad allora conosciuto. Lucini impiega ben dodici lunghi per portare a termine le incisioni di questa opera monumentale. In questo lungo lasso di tempo, Lucini realizza le tavole degli strumenti scientifici inventati da Robert Dudley per le sue navigazioni e le carte nautiche del secondo e del sesto libro, caratterizzate da una grande eleganza in chiave barocca e da una incisione di estrema chiarezza e nitidezza. Le carte nautiche vengono incluse nella prima edizione del 1646 pubblicata a Firenze e nella seconda edizione del 1661, pubblicata sempre a Firenze in due volumi. Una delle più belle ed importanti vedute della città, la prima stampa raffigurante il gioco del ponte a Pisa. Raro primo stato dell?opera. Bibliografia: Pisa e il suo territorio, p. 35, 18 I/III.
