Pierre Jean FABRE Hercules Piochymicus. Toulouse, Pierre Bosc, 1634 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. Rousseurs. Pour plus de détails.

(Bayly, Lewis)
(London): Printed for Robert Allot, and are to be sold at the signe of the Beare in Pauls Church-yard. Published 1634. 12mo, contemporary dark brown calf wth elaborate gilt floral chain-link design to both covers and spine, (18) 701 (1) pp, with engraved title page borders. Good copy, neat Japanese paper reinforcement to front inner hinge, some wear to edges of front flyleaf, contents very good, binding shows some loss of leather to bottom half inch of spine, otherwise a splendid example of this oft-published Puritan devotional manual first published in the early 1600s. This is its 32nd edition. It was a wildly popular book and an enormous influence on John Bunyan, who credits it with causing his spiritual awakening. Intact copies from the early 17th century are rare on the market as most copies were read to the point of tatters. No copy has come up for auction from before 1650 in the last several decades. OCLC lists one copy at Oxford (COPAC lists the same copy; ESTC S90427). Good.

HESSELIN Prières pour le soir et le matin. Manuscrit sur peau de vélin enluminé. 1634 Très beau manuscrit entièrement réglé, avec un titre doré avec un bel encadrement à la plume : une tête d'angelot, deux cariatides et une tête de mort. Sur la page suivante le blason du commanditaire, Louis Hesselin est dessiné à la plume. Le texte est délicatement calligraphié en plusieurs couleurs : or, bleu, rouge et noir. En tête de chapitres on compte 6 lettrines historiées en couleur d'une très grande finesse. Reliure aux armes de Louis Hesselin (1602-1662), maître de la chambre aux deniers et surintendant des plaisirs du roi, bibliophile éclairé et collectionneur de tableaux et d'objets d'art. "Hesselin faisait grande figure à la cour vers le milieu du XVIIe siècle. C'était l'homme de goût par excellence, le personnage à la mode, l'organisateur obligé de toutes les fêtes. Très friand des belles curiosités, il avait fait de sa maison quai des Béthune, dans l'île Saint-Louis, un véritable musée. (...) "J'appelle son cabinet toute sa maison - dit le père Nicéron, auteur de "La perspective curieuse" - car véritablement elle est ornée et remplie de tant de raretés, on y voit tant de belles glaces, d'excellents miroirs, tant de rares peintures et de pièces à ravir pour les rondes bosses et les reliefs, tant de bons livres en toutes sortes de science, qu'on peut la dire l'abrégé de tous les cabinets de Paris." Hesselin mourut empoisonné par un domestique en 1664. (...) Les livres de sa bibliothèque se rencontrent difficilement; ils sont d'ordinaire reliés en veau écaille à ses armes."

Le osservazioni... contengono giuste derisioni delle false credenze o delle superstizioni dell'avversario, ma anche professioni di fede altrettanto ingenue e grossolane in principi scientifici del tutto irreali" (Patrizi, Scrittori Padovani, II, p. 430). Il libro dello Scaligero era apparso per la prima volta nel 1557. Giulio Cesare Scaligero (Riva del Garda, 1484-Agen, Garonna, 1558) fu critico, grammatico, medico e naturalista.

CROON, Petrus.
1634. STCV 3151545 (3 copies); Verberckmoes, Laughter, jestbooks and society in the Spanish Netherlands, p. 189 Rare first and only edition of a book with entertaining riddles in prose and verse, for use within the family or at social parties, by the popular author Petrus Croon IV (1634-1682). He states in his preface, that because his earlier published book Moy-al was so graciously received, he presents his readers with another collection of riddles and epigrams, to feed both their lust for pleasure and their lust for learning. All riddles are presented to Philoxenus, a lover of guests, and are told by Conviva, an invited friend. The riddles are given in verse and the answers are afterwards discussed in dialogues, with the solutions hinted at but not bluntly given, because Croon believed it would keep interest when the answer was not fully known. Included at the end is a section containing the solutions to all riddles and emblems of the Moy-al.With library stamps and bookplate. Frontispiece and title-page closely trimmed, but without loss of the image or text. Rebacked, lacking last flyleaf. Overall in good condition.

A rare edition: WorldCat lists only three copies in Italian: at the Biblioteque Mazarine, Paris; Leibniz Bibliotehek, Hanover, GDR; and at the Wissenschafliche Stadtbibliothek, Mainz GDR. *** Author GIOVANNI BATTISTA BARPO (1584-1649) priest, and later canon, of the cathedral at Belluno in the Veneto region of Northern Italy, at the foothills of the Dolomites. This rare work appears first in 1633, then the following year, it is again presented in French, English, and this second Italian edition of 1634. Bibliographer Augusto Buzzati describes it as a thoughtful dictionary of agricultural life. The author is known to have produced only one other work. Front material includes a letter from Barpo's nephew and editor, Tomaso Barpo, in which he explains that his rather provincial uncle is short of the persistence and patience an author needs to follow through with the work; the author's authentic passion for the subject of agriculture, however, is not in doubt. Morals, methods and customs of plowing, vitaculture and good husbandry are all discussed. The moral conduct of agricultural life was a hot topic at this time, following harsh years of plague and famine in which, for instance, one third of the Venetian population had died … [Click Below for Full Description]

Thomas Malory [Arthur Burnett Benton]
William Stansby, London, 1634. Books 1 and 2 only of the 3 contained in this important edition of Malory - the edition known to Milton and the Romantic poets - in a copy owned by the American architect Arthur Burnett Benton and before that forming part of the collection at Spixworth Hall in Norfolk. Bound in eighteenth century quarter calf over marbled boards, scuffed and worn, with a round table device in gilt to the spine. The upper cover is only just still attached to the book. Francis Longe's Spixworth bookplate appears on the first pastedown with Benton's book label on the verso of the first blank. The famous frontispiece showing Arthur in the middle of the round table is bound in before the title page, both of these pages have been repaired and reinforced and are now loose. The two out of three extant books contained in this volume are elaborately and complicatedly misbound so that Book II precedes Book I and the contents pages to the two books have been shuffled though they are both complete. The first (in fact second) book is preceded by the correct Prologue, the Preface of William Caxton and two leaves of contents before 'The Second Part' (A1-QQ1) with a further 8 leaves of Contents followed by Book I (B-Ii4 ) which begins Malory's text with Uther Pendragon sending for the Duke of Cornewayle. There is no title page to the second book but it is again complete in itself. Paper stock is browned and thin, several pages with damage and occasional loss. However this is an affordable example of an important work, the first edition of Malory not directly descended from Cax … [Click Below for Full Description]
