        ENQVIRIES TOVCHING THE DIVERSITY OF LANGVAGES, AND RELIGIONS, THROUGH THE CHIEFE PARTS OF THE WORLD

      London: Printed by Iohn Norton, for Ioyce Norton and Richard Whitaker, 1635. Third or Fourth Edition (according to STC) . Hardcover. 194 x 143 mm (7 5/8 x 5 5/8"). 12 p.l., 203 pp. Third or Fourth Edition (according to STC). Sympathetic modern (probably 19th century) calf, covers panelled in blind, flat spine with vertical gilt titling. Historiated headpieces, foliated initials, device on title page. Front pastedown with bookplate of Isabel Somerset, Reigate Priory (see below). STC 3621. Spine leather a bit marked and scuffed, leather on covers slightly irregular in color, leaves with faint diagonal dampstain at lower right throughout (scarcely noticeable most of the time, but slightly darker on a half dozen preliminary leaves), otherwise quite an excellent copy, the binding solid, and the text clean, unusually fresh, and with comfortable margins. A major early British work in the field of anthropology, the "Enquiries" of Brerewood (1565?-1613) examines the history and contemporary state of the relations of large cultural groups in the world, particularly in Europe, western Asia, and Northern Africa. Although Brerewood writes as a person most interested in the locations, beliefs, and practices of the various branches of the Christian religion, he actually takes on the formidable task of discussing the changing character and influence of languages, peoples, and religions down through history. In the course of his discussion, he examines the spread and decline of Greek and Latin, the concurrent rise of the Romance languages, and the nature of some other tongues, including Slavonic and Oriental. According to Hodgen ("Early Anthropology in the 16th and 17th Centuries"), Brerewood, in his "perceptive little book on the geographical distribution of languages and religions," was "probably the first man to apply mathematical analysis to cultural and religious phenomena, and this in conjunction with a similar treatment of the origin and diffusion of languages." An antiquary and the first professor of astronomy at Gresham College, Brerewood was reluctant to publish his works during his lifetime, so his nephew Robert saw the present item through the press (it was first published in 1614). It became a popular and influential work that was printed in English, French, and Latin at least 10 times during the 17th century. According to Salmon in his "Effort and Achievement in 17th Century British Linguistics," the book was even more important than the seminal works of Camden or Verstegan "in determining the direction which philological enquiries were to take in 17th century England." Lady Isabel Somerset (1851-1921), whose elegant bookplate graces our volume, was a prominent philanthropist and promoter of sobriety. Deeply religious, she espoused the cause of temperance, working tirelessly for the movement and participating with American Frances Willard in a speaking tour through England and Scotland. In 1895 Lady Somerset founded the Duxhurst Colony for women recovering from alcoholism, building cottages to house some 40 residents on a 180-acre estate near Reigate. Lady Isabel's residence at Reigate Priory is now a museum.

Beautiful woodcut decorations, headers, initials throughout. First Edition. Contains the very scarce printed A before the title. and the dedication to Thomas Lord Binning in the 5th book which is not present in all copies. Fairly scarce early English printing detailing the current throughts on the philosopher's stone, numerology, burial ceremonies, different manners of duels and battles, meteors, astronomy, metaphysicks, miracles, etc. Sensitively rebacked, retaining some of the original leather on the boards, which are repaired and scuffed and worn but in the state considered "patina" rather than "tired". Judging from the leather on the spine, we would guess the work had been done in the last 50 years. Armorial book plate of Abel John Ram, Esq. (a Peer) affixed directly to the board without any end papers, and an old owner's signature on the back inside bare board. Renewed fly pages. "A" before title page has been remounted, and has numerous signatures of men in the Reeve family including "his book" dated in the 1700s, edges of page quite worn. General minor foxing, additional signatures of Reeve family on some of the blanks throughout. Book 3 has a number of pages that had a publisher's error -- there is extra paper at the gutter and this has caused some of the surrounding pages to have a vertical split at the gutter, slightly affecting text. Last few pages quite worn at the edges, not affecting text. Binding is very sturdy. A nice example of a hard to find first edition with the scarce "A".. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Good/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

This venerable justice of the peace manual went through some twenty editions between 1618 and 1746. This work is also significant because it firmly established the alphabetical topical structure adopted in later texts. Rooted in Crompton, Fitzherbert and Lambard, The Countrey Justice offers advice on such matters as buggery, customs, highways, prisons, riots, soldiers, murder, felonies, rogues and vagabonds, wool, and high treason. Though "not a judicial authority" says Marvin, "it is of considerable weight." Noyes [1805-1864] was a leading New York lawyer and a member of the commission formed to codify the state's laws, which resulted in the Field Codes. A man of extensive learning, he owned one of the finest law libraries in the United States. Marvin, Legal Bibliography (1847) 251.

        Sciographia, or, The art of shadovves: plainly demonstrating, out of the sphere, how to project both great and small circles, upon any plane whatsoever: with a new conceit of reflecting the sunne beames upon a diall, contrived on a plane, which the direct beames can never shine upon. Together with the manner of cutting, the five regular platonicall bodies, and two other, the one of 12, the other of 30 rhombes, never discovered heretofore, also the finding of their declinations, and reclinations, and adorning them with variety of dials. All performed, by the doctrine of triangles, and for ease, and delight sake by helpe of the late invented, and worthy admired numbers, called by the first inventor logarithmes.London: Thomas Harper, 1635.

      First and only edition, early issue (see below), of this very rare work which contains the first use of logarithms in dialling. Wells was a close friend of Briggs, Gellibrand and Gunter, assisted Briggs with the construction his tables of logarithms, and performed with Gellibrand and Gunter the measurements that led to the discovery of magnetic variation (published by Gellibrand in the same year as the present work).<br/><br/> Though he does not appear in the <i>Dictionary of National Biography</i>, and there is no record of his having attended either university, John Wells (d. 1635) was a man of considerable importance in the seventeenth century. Our first record of Wells consists in the grant, on May 10, 1606, to him and Antony Lewis, jointly, of the office of Keeper of the Naval Stores at Deptford Strand, Chatham, and Portsmouth for life. In 1615 a new grant of this office was issued, this time to John Wells alone. As Keeper of His Majesties Stores at the Navy Yard at Deptford, Wells had the use there of a fine house with a spacious garden second in size and value only to the adjacent house reserved for his immediate superior, the Treasurer of the Navy. Here at Deptford Wells's associates were the high naval officers who constantly brought back from distant lands data that would be scientifically valuable to anyone who could elicit and make use of it. <br/><br/> Most important, however, was the association of Wells with Briggs, Gunter, and Gellibrand. A letter from Wells to Briggs dated 9 January 1621 (Rigaud, Vol. I, pp. 5-6) shows that Wells assisted Briggs in the construction of logarithmic tables in the years after Napier's publication in 1614. Wells tells us ('The author to the reader') that when the present work was written, 'above thirteene yeeres since', Briggs and Gunter had encouraged him to publish the work as it would make use of the logarithmic tables they had compiled. Gunter, Wells, Phineas Pett, Hugh Lydiard and Edward Stevens worked together on ship design, and Wells made use of logarithms in the necessary calculations. After Gunter's death in December, 1626, an equal intimacy sprang up between Wells and Gunter's successor at Gresham College, Henry Gellibrand, whose most notable contribution to science was the proof of the secular variation of magnetic declination. Gellibrand, with Wells and several others, made the observations which led to this discovery in the garden of Wells's house at Deptford, "where no doubt he had some of the precisely oriented dials that he describes" (Taylor, p. 199). There they repeated the observations that Wells and Gunter had made in the same place twelve years earlier, in 1622. Finding a difference of more than two degrees between his and Gunter's determination of the variation, and a difference of seven degrees between his determination and that made by William Borough in 1580, Gellibrand demonstrated that the variation near London had been gradually decreasing. Wells records on p. 103 of the present work that "we have lately found a motion in the variation," and notes that this makes a needle an unreliable method of measuring the declination. <br/><br/> "Beginning with the plane-projection of the celestial sphere on the horizon of London, ... Wells describes the construction of seventeen dials, classified according to the system of Clavius's <i>Gnomonics</i>, the calculation being made with the help of spherical trigonometry and logarithms. The astronomical method of finding the meridian is described, and the author makes a passing reference to 'motion of variation' recently found out which now makes it uncertain to set a dial with a magnetic needle. He acknowledges assistance on many points from Henry Briggs and uses Edward Wright's tables of solar declination. The book was written for friends in 1622, when Gunter read it and begged him to print it. The matter lapsed when these old friends died, but Gellibrand renewed the request in 1634, and wrote an historical Preface to the book" (Taylor, p. 351). <br/><br/> This is an early issue, without the pasted-on diagrams on pp. 27, 235 and 242 found in many copies (the original diagrams having been printed inverted). ESTC notes a 'variant' which has appended the unsold sheets of logarithmic tables by Henry Briggs and Adriaan Vlacq, published at Gouda by P. Rammaseyn in 1626. These tables are not called for on the title, nor are they mentioned in the (31-page) list of contents. This copy, like that in Cambridge University Library (for example), does not have these tables appended. <br/><br/> The initials 'R.B.' on the front paste-down notwithstanding, it seems likely that this copy was from John Collins (1625-83). The subject matter is close to Collins's own interests (his <i>Geometrical dialling</i> and <i>The sector on a quadrant... accommodated for dialling</i> were both published in 1659), and the introduction to the Macclesfield sale catalogue notes that "it is probably not unreasonable to suppose that anything published before 1683 belonged to him." <br/><br/> ESTC S119762; Houzeua & Lancaster 11446; Macclesfield 2108 (this copy); Sotheran I, 5319 ('RARE'); S.J.

      Rouen - Jacques Besongne, 1635 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A very scarce first edition of this work on puragtory from French Jesuit Etienne Binet. Binet entered the Society of Jesus in 1690 and was rector of the colleges at Rouen and Paris, and provincial of Paris, Lyons, and Champagne. He was the author of forty-five published works. Father Binet&#39;s works are marked by a clear, graceful style, and quite an original turn of thought; they abound in apt quotations from Scriptures and the Fathers; although written 250 years ago they still furnish both pleasurable and profitable spiritual reading. Father Binet was the school-fellow and life-long friend of St. Francis de Sales, whose cheerful spirituality his own so much resembles. (NA)In French. With monastic bookplate to front pastedown.

      London: London, printed for the Company of Stationers. 1635., 1635. Book. Very Good. Leather. 5th or later Edition. Description: Sm. folio (11 × 7¼ in): [10], 136, 133-280, 277-410, [9] p.

Lacks A1, the initial blank. · Comments: Two rival editions were published in 1635, the result of a controversy between the assignees of John More, who had the patent for the publication of law books, and the Stationers Company, which claimed the copyright, having first published the book in 1618 when the English Stock owned the law patent. It is unclear whether Dalton was involved with either publication; the pagination (including irregularities) of both 1635 editions is the same as the 1630 edition. · References: STC 6211; S107283..

        Ioannis Seldeni Mare clausum seu De dominio maris libri duo. Primo, mare, ex iure naturæ seu gentium, omnium hominum non esse commune, sed dominii privati seu proprietatis capax, pariter ac tellurem, esse demonstratur. Secundo, serenissimum Magnæ Britanni

      Londini: Excudebat Will. Stanesbeius, pro Richardo Meighen, MDCXXXV, 1635. 27.5 cm x 18 cm, bound in sixes, pp. [26], 304, [12], [2] - errata, two stunning, large engraved maps in the text and one plan, text engravings of coins, tables, printed side-notes. Full brown calf, period rebind by Pierre Thibaudeau, 5 raised bands, gilt spine titles, red sprinkled edges, new endpapers, some minor soiling and tanning to the margins, light bit of worming to lower white space margin, else text block clean and crisp overall. "Mare clausum was probably the most widely read of all Selden&#146;s treatises. The work considered the question of dominion of the seas. The title literally translated from Latin means enclosed sea, in pointed opposition to the work Mare liberum, or free sea, published by Hugo Grotius in 1609. While Grotius, a prominent Dutch legal scholar, argued that the sea was openly navigable by all countries for trade, Selden countered that the sea was as subject to a country&#146;s private dominion as land. ... Mare clausum provided the basis of England&#146;s official position on the seas for over 100 years. Although in time Selden&#39;s argument failed, his participation in the debate helped launch the field of modern international law. Mare clausum has a secure place in the canon of classic legal texts." - Tarlton Law Library, Univ. of Texas. First Edition. Full Leather. Very Good. Quarto.

        Nova Belgica et Anglia Nova

      Amsterdam:. 1635.. Very good condition. One of the most distinctive early Dutch maps of America, characterized by a striking westward orientation, and prized for combining all the best elements of 17th century Dutch cartography. Showing Manhattan (Manatthans) only six years after it first appeared on a map. The most interesting inaccuracies of the map include the placement of Lake Champlain (Lacus Irocoisiensis), the delineation of Newport Bay, and the angle of the coast between New York and Cape Cod. Original hand color; decorative elements include Native Americans in canoes, Native American villages, European ships, bear, deer, foxes, beaver and birds. With lovely calligraphy, a title cartouche with coat of arms and two Native Americans, compass roses, and rhumb lines. Based on Adrian Block&#39;s 1614 manuscript, with some English place names (Niev Engeland, New Pleimouth, Milford Haven) which may indicate English sources, such as Captain John Smith&#39;s map. The view of the Northeast seen here would be the standard until the end of the seventeenth century. Reference: Schwartz & Ehrenberg, Mapping of America, pl. 58, p.103. Burden, P.D. 241.

        The Works Of Sir George Etherege: Containing His Plays And Poems

      1635-1689 Octavo, 7.5 x 4.5 inches. First collected edition. [p]4, B-T8. 288 pages. This is a clean copy, in contemporary boards, rebacked. This collection of Etherege's works contains the following plays: Love in a Tub; She Wou'd if She Cou'd; The Man of Mode, or, Sir Fopling Flutter. The poems are two "Letters to the Earl of Middleton," "A Song," "The Forsaken Mistress," and "Song of Basset." John Dennis commented on The Man of Mode in 1722. "Now I remember very well that upon the first acting this comedy, it was generally believed to be an agreeable representation of the persons of condition of both sexes, both in court and town; and that all the world was charmed with Dorimant; and that it was unanimously agreed that he had in him several of the qualities of Wilmot Earl of Rochester, as his wit, his spirit, his amorous temper, the charms that he had for the fair sex, his falsehood, and his inconstancy; the agreeable manner of his chiding his servants, which the late Bishop of Salisbury takes notice of in his life; and lastly, his repeating on every occasion the verses of Waller, for whom that noble lord had a very particular esteem. "'Tis by the ridicule that there is in the character of Sir Fopling, which is one of the principal ones of this comedy, from which it takes its name, that he is so very well qualified to please and to instruct. What true Englishman is there but must be pleased to see this ridiculous knight made the jest and the scorn of all the other characters for showing, by his foolish aping foreign customs and manners, that he prefers another country to his own? And of what important instruction must it be to all our youth who travel to show them that, if they so far forget the love of their country as to declare by their espousing foreign customs and manners that they prefer France or Italy to Great Britain, at their return they must justly expect to be the jest and the scorn of their own countrymen. "To conclude with one general observation, that comedy may be qualified in a powerful manner both to instruct and to please, the very constitution of its subject out always to be ridiculous. Comedy, says Rapin, is an image of common life and its end is to expose upon the stage the defects of particular persons in order to cure the defects of the public and to correct and amend the people by the fear of being laughed at. That therefore, says he, which is most essential to comedy is certainly the ridicule."

        The Mysteries of Nature and Art. In foure severall parts. The first of Water works. The second of Fire works. The third of Drawing, Washing, Limming, Painting and Engraving. The fourth of sundry Experiments

      LONDON : Thomas Harper for Ralph Mab, 1635 A rare and important work, known particularly for the inspiration that it gave to the young Isaac Newton. It was so popular that the second edition was published just a year after the first. This copy of the &#39;second Edition; with many additions unto every part&#39; is in poor condition. It is in a fairly recent leather binding with blind tooled borders and gilt titles to spine. The contents are extremely fragile and browned - presumably because of the particular batch of rag paper used in its printing. It lacks the decorative title page and the individual title pages for Second and Third Books. It also lacks the portrait of Bate. The title page for the Fourth Book &#39;The Booke of Extravagants&#39; is present. All pages have browning and fraying to edges, particularly at the beginning and end of the work where 4 pages have paper repairs. There does not appear to be text loss. There is ink annotation to the Table (index). A few pages have paint markings as if the owner was experimenting with paint and trying out the recipes in the book on the book itself. There are tape remains on another page. The work is profusely illustrated. 5 images of the work will be displayed but please contact us if you would like to see more to judge the condition of the book. We have priced this book to take account of condition, and it offers the opportunity to obtain a very rare work at a lower price. Size 19cm x 14.5 cm. 288 pages plus Table (16 pp).

Beautiful woodcut decorations, headers, initials throughout. First Edition. Contains the very scarce printed A before the title. and the dedication to Thomas Lord Binning in the 5th book which is not present in all copies. Fairly scarce early English printing detailing the current throughts on the philosopher&#39;s stone, numerology, burial ceremonies, different manners of duels and battles, meteors, astronomy, metaphysicks, miracles, etc. Sensitively rebacked, retaining some of the original leather on the boards, which are repaired and scuffed and worn but in the state considered "patina" rather than "tired". Judging from the leather on the spine, we would guess the work had been done in the last 50 years. Armorial book plate of Abel John Ram, Esq. (a Peer) affixed directly to the board without any end papers, and an old owner&#39;s signature on the back inside bare board. Renewed fly pages. "A" before title page has been remounted, and has numerous signatures of men in the Reeve family including "his book" dated in the 1700s, edges of page quite worn. General minor foxing, additional signatures of Reeve family on some of the blanks throughout. Book 3 has a number of pages that had a publisher&#39;s error -- there is extra paper at the gutter and this has caused some of the surrounding pages to have a vertical split at the gutter, slightly affecting text. Last few pages quite worn at the edges, not affecting text. Binding is very sturdy. A nice example of a hard to find first edition with the scarce "A".. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Good/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Johannes Hartmann, the first professor of iatrochemistry, used it as a practical textbook? In sharp contrast with Paracelsus? vagueness, Crollius describes in detail the individual preparations, their composition, and application. This explains why the book became such a great success?».

        RATIO ATQUE INSTITUTIO STUDIORUM SOCIETATIS IESU., Antverpia, Apud Ioannem Meursium, 1635

      10 x15, ril. coeva piena pergamena, esemplare fresco, l'edizione è suddivisa in quattro parti, ognuna con proprio frontespizio. La prima è la vera e propria RATIO che riunisce tutte le regole per prefetti, rettori, professori; è di pag. 173 + index. La seconda parte "Ordinationes praepositorum generalium" regole comuni a tutta la società (istruttori, moniti generali, ordinazione dei libri, principi di confessione e carriere nella società ) pag. 146 + index. La terza parte "Instructiones ad provinciales et superiores societatis" (tutte le regole date dalla VII congregazione ai facenti parte la Compagnia; esse riguardano il noviziato, le missioni e la promozione degli studi); è di pag. 112 + index. La quarta parte "Claudii Aquavivae instructio pro superioribus" (le istruzioni del Superiore che pubblicò la presente Ratio, riguardanti esecuzioni, spirito, preghiera, obbedienza, castità ) è di pag. 48 + index. La società di Gesù nacque il 24 giugno 1539, con a capo Ignazio di Loyola, che elaborò la prima Formula Istituti, di soli cinque punti, proposta al Papa Paolo III che la approvò il 27 settembre 1540 con la Bolla Regimini militans Ecclesiae, donando al nuovo ordine religioso il nome di Compagnia di Gesù, con il compito di "occuparsi del progresso delle anime nella vita e nella dottrina cristiana e della difesa e propagazione della fede". L'approvazione delle Costituzioni dell'Ordine è del 1558, voluta dallo stesso Loyola (morto peraltro nel 1556), che intendeva così regolare l'organizzazione interna in ogni ambito, benché lo stesso primo superiore non intendesse istituire all'interno della Compagnia corsi d'istruzione. La ratifica definitiva della "Ratio atque Institutio studiorum Societatis Jesu" avviene sotto il superiorato generale di padre Claudio Acquaviva (1543-1615), nel 1599. Nel 1616 le scuole dell'Ordine sono 372, con 13.112 studenti, numeri impensabili per il tempo. La Ratio viene ritoccata dalla VII congregazione generale del 1616, e da allora il testo rimane sostanzialmente invariato fino al 1832. Questa edizione del 1635 contiene sia le istruzioni di Padre Acquaviva che le conclusioni della Congregazione generale, ed è perciò una preziosa e ravvicinata summa del pensiero e delle opere dei GESUITI. Questa che presentiamo è la prima edizione apparsa dopo la pubblicazione della nuova Ratio nel 1616, a seguito della Congregazione, e risulta oggi presente in sole quattro biblioteche italiane.

Tillotson (sale, Anderson Auction Company, 1 February 1910, lot 53 sale marked $11.00). Sold Swan Galleries Sale 2041 lot 175, $360.00. No copies found.Publius Terentius Afer (195/185?159 BC), better known as Terence, was a playwright of the Roman Republic. His comedies were performed for the first time around 170?160 BC, and he died young probably in Greece or on his way back to Rome. Terentius Lucanus, a Roman senator, brought Terence to Rome as a slave, educated him and later on, impressed by his abilities, freed him. All of the six plays Terence wrote have survived. One famous quotation by Terence reads: "Homo sum, humani nil a me alienum puto", or "I am a man, I consider nothing that is human alien to me." This appeared in his play Heauton. Terence's date of birth is disputed; Aelius Donatus, in his incomplete Commentum Terenti, considers the year 185 BC to be the year Terentius was born; Fenestella, on the other hand, states that he was born ten years earlier, in 195 BC.He may have been born in or near Carthage or in Greek Italy to a woman taken to Carthage as a slave. Terence's ethnonym Afer suggests he lived in the territory of the Libyan tribe called by the Romans Afri near Carthage prior to being brought to Rome as a slave. This inference is based on the fact that the term was used in two different ways during the republican era: during Terence's lifetime, it was used to refer to anyone from the land of the Afri (Africa, meaning Northern Tunisia including Carthage); later, after the destruction of Carthage in 146, it was used to refer to non-Carthaginian Berbero-Libyans, with the term Punicus reserved for the Carthaginians. It is therefore possible that Terence was of Libyan descent, considered ancestors to the modern-day Berber peoples. In any case, he was sold to Terentius Lucanus, a Roman senator, who educated him and later on, impressed by Terence's abilities, freed him. Terence then took the nomen Terentius, which is the origin of the present form. When he was 25, Terence left Rome and he never returned, after having exhibited the six comedies which are still in existence. Some ancient writers tend to say that he died at sea. Like Plautus, Terence adapted Greek plays from the late phases of Attic comedy. He was more than a translator, as modern discoveries of ancient Greek plays have confirmed. However, Terence's plays use a convincingly 'Greek' setting rather than Romanizing the characters and situations. Terence worked hard to write natural conversational Latin, and most students who persevere long enough to be able to read him in the vernacular find his style particularly pleasant and direct. Aelius Donatus, Jerome's teacher, is the earliest surviving commentator on Terence's work. Terence's popularity throughout the Middle Ages and the Renaissance is attested to by the numerous manuscripts containing part or all of his plays; the scholar Claudia Villa has estimated that 650 manuscripts containing Terence's work date from after 800 AD. The mediaeval playwright Hroswitha of Gandersheim claims to have written her plays so that learned men had a Christian alternative to reading the pagan plays of Terence, while the reformer Martin Luther not only quoted Terence frequently to tap into his insights into all things human but also recommended his comedies for the instruction of children in school.Terence's six plays are:* Adelphoe (The Brothers)* Andria (The Girl from Andros)* Eunuchus; Restoration poet and playwright Sir Charles Sedley modelled his comedy Bellamira: or, The Mistress (1687) partly on this play.* Heauton Timorumenos (The Self-Tormentor)* Hecyra (The Mother-in-Law)* PhormioThe first printed edition of Terence appeared in Strasbourg in 1470, while the first certain post-antiquity performance of one of Terence's plays, Andria, took place in Florence in 1476. There is evidence, however, that Terence was performed much earlier. The short dialogue Terentius et delusor was probably written to be performed as an introduction to a Terentian performance in the ninth century (possibly earlier). A phrase by his musical collaborator Flaccus for Terence's comedy Hecyra is all that remains of the entire body of ancient Roman music. This has recently been shown to be unauthentic.
