Saadi / Ryer, André du (ed. & transl.).
Paris, Anthoine de Sommaville, 1634. Small 8vo. (8), 166 pp. (lacks final blank). Contemp. brown full calf with cover borders and edges gilt. Spine gilt. Marbled endpapers. Rare first European edition of Sa'adi's famous "Gulistan", a work in a similar tradition as the Mirrors for Magistrates. The translator, André du Ryer, was a French orientalist and consul in the Levant, notably in Alexandria and Constantinople. He returned to France in 1630 and became royal interpreter in oriental languages. He also published a Turkish grammar in 1630 and a translation of the Qur'an in 1647. Sa'adi is the most widely known Persian author in the West, and his "Gulistan" (Rose Garden), completed in 1258, was the first Persian literary work to be translated into any European language. This and later translations established Sa'adi's reputation among Western writers and inspired La Fontaine, Diderot, Voltaire, Renan, Herder, and Goethe. The present translation remained incomplete; the first complete version in a western language was the edition of the text with a Latin translation published in Amsterdam in 1651. - Spine professionally repaired in places. Provenance: Gigault de la Favière, 1768 (signature on title); Colegio de Neustra Señora de Guadalupe, Lima (blindstamp to title); Jules Becker (ink stamp on first free endpaper).

DIGGES, Leonard
1634. Woodcut vignette on title, two folding printed tables, & many woodcuts in the text. 2 p.l., 26 leaves. Small 4to, later vellum (title & final leaf somewhat soiled). London: F. Kyngston, 1634. A late edition (1st ed.: 1556) of one of the four great English books on land surveying of the 16th century. Digges's Tectonicon was by far the most successful and long-lived; there were at least twenty editions, the last published in 1692. Digges (ca. 1515-59?), who attended University College, Oxford, wrote this work for "surveyors, 'landmeters,' joiners, carpenters, and masons. It taught the measurement of land, the calculation of quantities, and the use of various instruments such as the carpenter's rule, the square, and a version of the cross-staff ('the profitable staff'). Digges was at pains to correct common errors practised by those without an adequate grounding in mathematics; this theme of 'vulgar errors' became standard in many subsequent mathematical texts.The work also marks the public début of the commercial trade in mathematical ('scientific') instruments in England."-ODNB. ? D.S.B., IV, p. 97. Richeson, English Land Measuring to 1800: Instruments and Practices, p. 53-"The first five chapters give simple rules and methods for the use and application of arithmetic and geometry to the measuring of the areas of simple geometric figures; the remaining sixteen chapters, including the appendix, are primarily an application of the principles outlined in the first five chapters, along with the use and application of the various instruments at the command of the land measu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Londini, ex Officina typographica Thom. Cotes, 1634. Folio (295 x 190mm). pp. (20), 326, (4), title-page with woodcut of a bee hive surrounded by various insects and about 500 woodcuts in the text, 4 full pages with woodcuts of insects at end. Later vellum. First edition, 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. Last leaf with small paper repair at the lower outer corner, the missing legs of an insect have been supplied by pendrawing. A few leaves with some tiny marginal worming. An attractive copy of this important work.Nissen ZBI, 2852. [Attributes: First Edition]

(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.

GODARD, Benjamin 1849-1895
Folio (330 x 255 mm). Title + 7 pp. Notated in ink on systems with 3 staves, one for solo voice ("Chant") and two for piano, on 16-stave paper with small octagonal blindstamp of Lard-Esnault, Paris to upper inner corners. With autograph dedication to head of title: "à Madame La Comtesse Mercy d'Argenteau." With text in French. A fair copy. Slightly browned, a bit heavier at margins; some show-through; occasional smudges. Closely trimmed at lower edge, just affecting notation in several instances. Published as a separate piece by Durand & Schœnewerk in Paris [PN D.S. & Cie. 1634], [1873]). "Godard composed works in most genres with the exception of church music, but ultimately he made his reputation as a composer of salon pieces for piano and of songs, albums of which were translated into English... His early promise did not really develop in his later works, although his early death from consumption meant that he had no chance to mature fully as a composer... His songs have considerable charm and one or two numbers from his operas have survived in the repertory in their own right." Richard Langham Smith in Grove Music Online. Louise Mercy d'Argenteau (born Marie-Clotilde-Elisabeth Louise de Riquet, 1837-1890), the dedicatee, became famous for her championship of Russian nationalist composers, especially Alexander Borodin and César Cui. Auguste de Chatillon (1808-1881) was a painter and poet. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Another engraving (A8 verso) depicts what must be a wake, with people eating and drinking, while in the background an angel leads a figure towards Heaven. The author of this contemplative work was a distinguished theologian, writer, and cardinal, born at Montepulciano, 4 October, 1542; died 17 September, 1621. It was first published in 1620, and editions appeared in several languages into the eighteenth century. In addition to his writings on a variety of subjects, he became involved with the early stages of the Galileo case, and when the Holy Office condemned the heliocentric theory it became Bellarmine's official duty to signify the condemnation to Galileo and receive his submission. Cardinal Robert Bellarmine stood, at the time of Galileo's first published writing on the subject of Copernicanism, as the Church's chief guardian against deviation … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hafniæ (Copenhagen), Melchior Martzan, 1634. Lille 8vo. Lidt senere hldrbd. Let rygforgyldning. Rester af titeletiket. Ryg lidt slidt. (4),54,(2) pp., 1 kobberstukket planche. De første blade løse. Originaludgaven af en af de allerførste lærebøger udgivet i Danmark vedrørende læren om de hele tal og regnearterne i matematikken. Bogen var tiltænkt som lærebog i elementær aritmetik for de studerende på Christian den IV's Akademi i Sorø og indøvelsen skete ved hjælp af en række opgaver som stilles i bogen. Lauremberg (1590-1658) var både mathematiker, filolog og digter. Han blev af Chr. IV indkaldt til professoratet i matematik ved det adelige Akademi i Sorø, hvor han forlod sin stilling i Rostock som det Filosofiske Fakultets dekan. I Sorø virkede han som professor i matematik og ingeniørvidenskab fra 1623 til sin død i 1658. Han var en ikke ubetydelig matematiker og foregangsmand, særlig kendt er han for sin indførelse af logaritmerne i Danmark. Det er oså velkendt, at Chr. IV havde udset Lauremberg til at udføre det første danske kartografiske værk ved opmåling af landet. Hans virksomhed som korttegner var allerede begyndt i Mecklenburg og det ses, at han i en del år var optaget af denne virksomhed i Danmark. Kortværket blev imidlertid aldrig til noget til kongens store fortrydelse. Herefter overtog Johannes Meyer kortlægningen. Lauremberg er yderligere kendt som en af tidens mest fremragende latinske poeter, således indeholder hans "Satyra" fra 1636 spirene til de senere plattyske "Skjæmtedigte".The very scarce first edition of one of the first elementary textbooks in arit … [Click Below for Full Description]

A Paris, Chez Salomon de la Fosse, 1634. 2 parties en 1 volume in-8. Titre gravé. 3ff.

Célèbre manuel de médecine populaire publié pour la première fois en 1623 et contenant, à la suite du "Médecin Charitable", les divers traités qui lui avaient été adjoints au fur et à mesure de ses diverses éditions, et qui sont ici pour la plupart dotés d'une page de titre séparée: "Le Prix et Valeur des médicaments tant simples que composez, desquels on se sert à la Médecine", "L'Apoticaire charitable enseignant à faire en la maison les médicamens composez avec grande facilité, peu de frais et peu de temps", "Le Médecin charitable enseignant la manière d'embaumer les corps morts", "Traictez des Baumes, Unguens, et Emplastres", "Traicte des Emplastres", "La Manière de faire toutes sortes de confitures seiches et liquides" (incluant "La Manière de faire toutes sortes de parfums"), "Discours du Bezoart et des tromperies qu'on pratique avec cette pierre, qui n'est qu'une invention de Droguistes pour attraper de l'argent", "Traicte de la Peste, de ses causes et de sa cure", et "La Conservation du thresor de la santé ou advis salutaire sur la saignée". Cet ouvrage connut un succès extraordinaire avec plus de soixante éditions entre 1623 et 1679 mais il est intéressant de constater que des bibliographies comme Vicaire ou Bitting ne citent que des éditions largement postérieures à celle-ci.

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.

Lucian of Samosata
Oxford: Printed by William Turner, 1634.. Small quarto, pp. [1-8] [1-8] 1-196; collates A4-I4, K4-T4, V4, X4-Z4, Aa4-Cc4, modern black buckram. First Hickes edition of the DIALOGUES and first edition in English of Lucian's "True Historie." Includes "Lucian His True Historie" and "Icaromenippus, or the Loftie Traveller" (also known as "Above the Clouds"), as well as other fantastic dialogues and pieces. Lucian's "Verae Historiae," dating from the 2nd century A.D., is the "... earliest surviving interplanetary romance; a satire in which a sailing ship's crew is carried by a whirlwind to an inhabited moon." - Locke, Voyages in Space 002. Lucian is a major proto figure for fantasy, not only for his "True Historie," but also for "Icaromenippus" and other fantastic dialogues and pieces collected here. Lucian "was one of the first great fantasists, producing material that was knowingly fiction, satirizing the old gods but using supernatural plot devices. His most important works were his Dialogues, a form he derived from Plato (427-347 BC); they have been imitated by scores of writers from the 15th century on ... His Menippus sequence, 'Menippus' (also known as 'Necyomantia') and 'Icaromenippus,' shows an old philosopher endeavouring to discover the meaning and realities of life, first through discussions with the dead in the underworld and then with the gods on Olympus ... In 'Charon' the ferryman over the Styx leaves the underworld to explore life. It is perhaps Lucian's most expressive form of reverse perception, again highlighting the pettiness of humanity ...

Contemporary vellum, faded manuscript title to spine. Engraved title page and 143 full-page maps of the world, the first map with old hand colouring. A couple of pencilled marginalia. Vellum soiled, ties on covers now lost, light worming to rear pastedown and last few leaves, front free endpaper loosening a little, contents a little browned in places as usual, light staining to pp. 88-9 and to 609-616, chip to corner of pp. 105/6 and 651/2 without loss. A very good copy. An attractive copy of Mercator and Hondius's Atlas, unrestored in a contemporary binding. In 1628 Joannis Janssonius, spotting a gap in the Dutch market for a small format portable atlas, commissioned this edition, enlisting Abraham Goos and Pieter van den Keere - two of the most accomplished engravers of their day - to engrave the maps. The edition proved successful and underwent numerous printings up to 1651; the maps in this 1634 edition are identical to those of the 1628 edition.

Aurelius, Marcus, Emperor of Rome (Meric Casaubon translator)
London: M. Flesher for Richard Mynne, 1634. First English language edition. Translated out of the original Greek; with notes: by Meric Casaubon, Marcus Aurelius' extremely influential expression of Stoic philosophy. Small quarto (189 x 138 mm), without blank A1, otherwise complete as issued, including the folding plate in the "Notes" section (illustrating three Roman pots from the collection of Henry Dering of Kent). Bound in contemporary full calf with double blind-rule, rebacked to style (preserving part of the original spine label). Minor toning to the pages, but generally an attractive copy that hasn't been washed or put in a modern binding. Quite scarce thus. From the library of Thomas B. Mosher, the private press publisher from Portland Maine. Copies have occasionally appeared on the market with the Faithorne engraved portrait of Marcus Aurelius from Gataker's edition of 1652 inserted as frontispiece, but none is called for in this edition. First edition in English, a translation that proved an enduring success, remaining in print into the 20th century. "The charitable-sociable Stoicism of Casaubon's Marcus Aurelius appealed to a peaceful cosmic holism and rational moral duty in urging the pious conformity widely praised by Stuart advocates of the established church" (Barbour, English Epicures and Stoics, p. 195). In the 19th century Marcus Aurelius' reputation became increasingly contested, on the one hand being praised by liberal Anglican scholars who read his Stoicism as prefiguring Christianity, on the other championed by a number of prominent writers who found it … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ruiz de Alarcón y Mendoza (Juan)
Sebastian de Cormellas. text (mostly) in double columns, a trifle browned, a few spots or minor stains, paperflaw in A3 causing a split in the middle of the leaf, but no loss, pp. 35, small 4to, disbound, modern paper wrappers, library stamp on first and last pages, good. First separate edition, very rare. Most of Ruiz's (modest) output appeared in 2 collections, published in 1628 and 1634: this play, under the title Examen de maridos, appeared in the latter collection (same printer). Alarcón was the least prolific of all the great dramatists of Spain and is one of the very few Spanish-Americans (he was born in Mexico) among the great dramatists of the Siglo de Oro. He wrote less than did others, and many of his works circulated under their names. He took pains to mull over his plays and polish both their versification and their general composition. Fitzmaurice-Kelly said of Alarcón: 'There are Spanish dramatists greater than Ruiz de Alarcón: there is none whose work is of such even excellence.' This copy was once in a Sammelband, evident from the MS pagination added. (Palau 281572 and 281575)

(SPANHEIM, Friedrich )
Rouen, Iean Berthelin, 1634. 8:o. (8),+ 496,+ (56) s. Enstaka små rostfläckar. Samtida pergamentband, ryggen med handskriven pappersetikett. Äldre namnteckning på titelbladet. Warmholtz 3796 not. Ej i Planer. Senare upplaga, utökad på slutet med ett blad med den svenska soldatens brev till Gustav II Adolfs änka Maria Eleonora, "Lettre du soldat suedois a la tres-haute, tres-puissante, & serenissime princesse Marie Eleonore". Teologen Friedrich Spanheims "Le soldat suedois" blev en av de mest spridda skildringarna av kriget, och inte minst av slaget vid Lützen och Gustav II Adolfs död. Den skall enligt Warmholtz ha skrivits på uppmaning av Rasche, en diplomat i Gustav II Adolfs tjänst. Redan 1633 utkom ett antal upplagor och fler åren därefter samt översättningar. En italiensk, "Il soldato svezzese", utkom 1634, en holländsk "De Sweedsche soldaet", 1649. En engelsk, omfattande kapitlet om Lützen och kungens död, utkom 1633: "The Great and Famous Battel of Lutzen [...] ". Friedrich Spanheim (1600-49) var kalvinist och studerade teologi i Genève. Han blev professor i filosofi där 1626 och verkade mellan åren 1633 och 1637 även som rektor. 1642 flyttade han till Leiden för professorstjänsten i teologi. Han är far till numismatikern Ezechiel Spanheim, vilken utpekades av Mauvillon som författare till verket.
