No portrait. A very few leaves with old ink spots, otherwise pages clean. Bound in full brown calf, which is cracked on surface of boards and worn at extremities. Rebacked to style. ESTCS122127. The year 1605 produced another volume of material gathered from Camden's and Robert Cotton's libraries, the Remaines of a Greater Worke Concerning Britain. Camden did not put his name to it, identifying himself only by the final letter of each name, as M. N., but he dedicated it to Robert Cotton, suggesting his own ambivalence about a book that consisted of (as he wrote in the Epistle Dedicatorie) 'the rude rubble and out-cast rubbish' of a greater and more serious worke." If the Remaines is an ungainly, seemingly shapeless collection, it is also frequently witty and wise, and richly varied. Bringing together Camden's interest in literature and language, and social and cultural history, including both popular and high culture, the Remaines contains a wealth of material. Moreover, as a collection it reflects the unusual moment in the emergence of early modern Britain when the artefacts of the vernacular culture were coming to be valued in new ways. With the first historically organized anthology of medieval poetry, a historical and comparative study of the English language, collections of names and their meanings, of (in the words of one of the chapter headings) 'grave speeches, and wittie apothogemes,' and of epitaphs, it can be seen as a popular spin-off from its more expensive and serious historical mother lode, the Britannia. With two additional, enlarged editions in his own lifetime, seven throughout the seventeenth century, and several reprints thereafter, the Remaines remained a popular and useful work." Oxford DNB. Galland, Cryptology 33. Dekesel 17th C 17.

Danielem Schwenterum

      Nuremberg: Jeremiae Dumseis, 1636. First edition of this early collection of mathematical puzzles, games and inventions, several of which are illustrated on the title page in small vignettes. The sixteen sections cover a wide range of subjects, from mathematics to optics and hydraulics. Leibniz read a copy of the book in his student days, his study of its many combinatorial problems leading to his first mathematical publication, the <i>Ars combinatoria</i> (1666), which formed the mathematical basis for his proposed &#145;calculus of thought&#146;.<br/><br/>& As well as numerous problems in &#145;recreational&#146; mathematics, Schwenter&#146;s book describes several significant inventions. Perhaps the most notable of these is a fountain pen, which was made from two quills, one of which served as a reservoir for ink inside the other quill. The ink was sealed inside the quill with cork, and ink was squeezed through a small hole to the writing point. Although Schwenter did not invent the fountain pen, his is the first illustration of a working fountain pen in a printed work. <br/><br/>& One original invention of Schwenter described in this book is the &#145;scioptric ball&#146;. This is a universal joint that allows a microscope, mounted on the ball, to be swivelled into any position. Its invention was inspired by Schwenter&#39;s studies of the human eye. The scioptric ball provided a firm anchor for a microscope or telescope while allowing the telescope to be swivelled in all directions in order to follow the course of an eclipse or for drawing panoramic views. It was in some ways the first wide-angle lens. <br/><br/>& & Schwenter&#146;s Deliciae is sometimes described as a translation of Van Etten & Leurechon&#146;s Récréations Mathématiques (first published in 1624), but Singmaster has pointed out that this is &#145;quite wrong&#146;. Schwenter does indeed consider some of the problems in Leurechon&#146;s book (these are identified as &#147;aus dem Frankosen&#148;), but many of the problems in Deliciae were collected by Schwenter himself. The book proved extremely popular, and was expanded to three volumes by Georg Philip Harsdörffer (1651-53). This was for many years the most comprehensive work on the subject, and was reprinted in 1677 and 1692. <br/><br/>& & Professor of oriental languages and mathematics at the University of Altdorf, Daniel Schwenter was born at Nuremberg in 1595 and died on 19 January 1636, a few months before the publication of this, his second book. He was also the author of <i>Geometriae practicae novae</i>, which appeared in four parts from 1616 to 1627. <br/><br/>& & David Singmaster, Sources in Recreational Mathematics: An Annotated Bibliography & (www.gotham contains descriptions of several of the mathematical problems considered by Schwenter.& Small 4to: 189 x 151 mm. Pp. [xii], 574, [2]. Contemporary vellum over boards. Engraved titlepage, numerous illustrations and diagrams in the text. Some browning throughout, in all a very good copy.

        Epitaffio di Jacques Callot

      Acquaforte e bulino, 1636, firmato in lastra in basso. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata all?interno del rame ma completa della parte incisa, restauri nella parte bianca superiore, per il resto in buono stato di conservazione. Eseguito l?anno successivo alla morte del Callot, questo ritratto post-mortem fu probabilmente commissionato al Bosse dall?editore Israel Henriet. Il volto del Callot deriva dal ritratto di Michel Lasne, del 1629. Opera molto rara.Bibliografia: Abraham Bosse savant graveur, p. 172, 142. Dimensioni 134x245 Etching and engraving, 1636. signed and dated on lower part. Magnificent work, rich in shades, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, trimmed inside the platemark but with the entire engraved part, minor repairs on the upper part, otherwise in good condition. This plate has been realized one year after the death of Callot; the post-mortem portrait has been very likely commissioned by Israel Henriet, the publisher. The face of Callot recalls the portrait of Michel Lasne, realized in 1629. A very rare work. Abraham Bosse savant graveur, p. 172, 142. Dimensioni 134x245.

Biskopen i Strängnäs, Laurentius Paulinus Gothus - från 1637 ärkebiskop - bidrog enligt Lindroth inte med något nytt i denna sin stort upplagda svenska historia. Den kan däremot betraktas som det mest typiska uttrycket för hur en lärd historieskrivning tog sig ut, innan 1700-talets källkritik tog vid. Paulinus Gothus för fram sin historia till sin samtid och avslutar den år 1633, därefter följer en samtidighetstabell och en exkurs "De gothis externis" om folkvandringsfolkens (dvs enligt dåtidens synsätt svenskarnas) bravader utomlands

Den ovanliga första upplagan (med annat titelblad även utgiven av Jansonius i Amsterdam samma år). En andra upplaga publicerades 1651. Med denna bok steg polyhistorn Ole Worm (1588-1654) fram inför världen som den stora auktoriteten på runor, trots stora brister i tolkningarna. Bureus i Sverige blev bestört när han såg sina egna insatser förringas av Worm, men än värre var att Worm i skriften Fasti Danici (1626) påstått att danskarna hade uppfunnit runskriften och för övrigt var det förnämsta folket i hela Norden. I "Runer" undersökte Worm med enbart danskt material runornas ursprung, vilka han härledde ur de hebreiska tecknen. Mot felaktigheterna i denna skrift lät Bureus publicera en elak satir, "Runa redux". I andra upplagan av "Runer" som kom 1651 erkände Worm att han tidigare försummat Bureus forskning, vilket han nu ångrade

        Grammatica arabica . Cui Accedunt Locmanni fabulae, et adagia quaedam arabum

      Lugd. Batavorum (Leyde): Apud Ioannem Maire, 1636. relié. 2 parties en un Vol. pet. in 4 (14,5x19cm). La toute première édition de cet ouvrage est parue en 1613. Les textes (contes et maximes) de Loqman furent intégrés à la Grammatica en 1615. L&#39;ouvrage, qui connut un franc succès, fut régulièrement réédité par son éditeur. L&#39;exemplaire appartenait à la bibliothèque du mathématicien Michel Chasles. Plein Velin d&#39;époque. Dos lisse avec titre à la plume (estompé). Coin inférieur droit rogné Thomas Erpenius (1584-1624) était un fameux et célèbre orientaliste hollandais de son temps, il publia de nombreuses grammaires orientales et fut titulaire de la chaire d&#39;arabe et de langues orientales de l&#39;université de Leyde de 1613 à 1624, on créa même une chaire d&#39;hébreux en sa faveur. Courtisé par les grandes places d&#39;Europe, il ne quitta jamais Leyde. Ce fut la première fois qu&#39;on traduisait Loqman en Europe.

        Herball or Generall Historie of Plantes, The

      1636. Second Edition of the Most Famous English HerbalGERARD, John. The Herball or Generall Historie of Plantes. Gathered by John Gerarde of London, Master in Chirurgerie, Very much Enlarged and Amended by Thomas Johnson, Citizen and Apothecarye of London. London: Printed for Adam Islip, Joice Norton, and Richard Whitakers, 1636.Third edition of Gerard&#146;s Herball (first published in 1597) and the second edition edited by Thomas Johnson (a reprint of the 1633 edition, with the errata corrected in the text). Large folio (13 1/4 x 8 15/16 inches; 337 x 227 mm.). [38], 1630 [i.e, 1634], [1], [1, blank], [46, indexes and tables] pp. Bound without the initial and final blank leaves, as usual. Engraved allegorical title by John Payne and 2,766 woodcut illustrations of plants in the text. Decorative woodcut head- and tail-pieces and initials.Mid-nineteenth-century sprinkled calf, expertly rebacked, with original spine laid down. Spine decoratively tooled in gilt in compartments with five raised bands and tan morocco gilt lettering label. Board edges decoratively tooled in gilt. Marbled endpapers. The second edition of Gerarde to be edited by Thomas Johnson. It is a reprint of the 1633 edition, with the errata corrected, and in place of the list of errata on the verso of the last leaf there is &#147;An Advertisement to the Readers.&#148;&#147;The first edition of Gerard&#146;s herbal [1597] held the field without a competitor for more than a generation. It was not until it began to noised abroad that a certain John Parkinson would soon produce a new herbal to take its place, that the successors of Gerard&#146;s original publisher were brought to the point of undertaking a second edition. In 1632 they commissioned Thomas Johnson, a well-known London apothecary and botanist, to carry out the work, with the proviso that it must be completed within the year. This heavy task Johnson accomplished with marked success, even adding a balanced and comprehensive historical introduction. He recalls Gaspard Bauhin in his scholarly anticipation of modern methods of editorship. He has, for example, a system of marking the text to distinguish the degrees to which he has altered or re-written Gerarde&#146;s descriptions. Johnson&#146;s new version was illustrated with a set of 2,766 blocks, previously used in the botanical books published by Plantin. The Herball, thus transformed, reached a far higher level than Gerard&#146;s own edition&#148; (Arber, Herbals, p. 134). An excellent and generally clean copy with minor issues compulsively noted: Small ink blot on E1 recto (p. 53); small paper flaw in the upper blank margin of E5 (pp. 61/62), just touching one letter on the recto; small hole in I4 (pp. 107/108), just affecting one woodcut on the recto and a few letters on the verso; small rust spot on T6-V2 (pp. 232-235), just affecting a couple of letters; slight browning in the gutter of X2 and X3 (pp. 248 and 249) from an inserted flower, now removed; small ink blot on Dd6 verso (p. 328), affecting one woodcut; small piece torn from upper blank margin of Tt1 (pp. 497/498), just touching rule; outer margin of Ccc1 (pp. 581/582) strengthened on the recto; small repair in the outer blank margin of Vuu1 (pp. 785/786); short tear (1 inch) in the lower blank margin of Ffff1-Ffff2 (pp. 893-896), just touching one letter on p. 893; small rust hole in Ssssss3 (pp. 1593/1594), just affecting a couple of letters; short clean tear in Yyyyyy1 (first leaf of index), not affecting text. Some light offsetting from the woodcuts, faint dampstain in the lower margin of a few leaves, a few additional small stains or rust spots, and a few additional minor marginal tears or paper flaws. Small bookseller&#146;s label (&#147;R.D. Steedman/Bookseller/Newcastle-on-Tyne&#148;) on front pastedown. Henrey 156. Hunt 230. Nissen, BBI, 698. Pritzel 3282. STC 11752.

        The Herball or Generall Historie of Plantes. Gathered by John Gerarde of London, Master in Chirurgerie. Very much Enlarged and Amended by Thomas Johnson Citizen and Apothecarye of London

      London: Printed by Adam Islip, Joice Norton and Richard Whitakers, 1636. Folio. (13 5/8 x 9 inches). Engraved title by Payne with decorative surround incorporating a portrait of the author, numerous woodcut illustrations, various decorative initials, occasional woodcut head or tailpieces. (Ll3 and Ll4 with old remargining). Early panelled calf, neatly rebacked, spine in seven compartments with raised bands, morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment, modern calf-backed cloth- covered box. The third [second Johnson] edition of Gerard&#39;s Herbal: a significant work for its vast collection of botanical illustrations, which remained the standard English reference for over two centuries. Gerard was superintendent of the gardens of William Cecil, Lord Burghley, one of the most influential members of the court of Elizabeth I. In addition to his work for Lord Burghley, Gerard also raised many exotic plants in his own gardens and travelled extensively in search of new specimens. The first edition of the present work, published in 1597, was much praised for the elegance of the descriptions, but Johnson&#39;s re-editing of the work after Gerard&#39;s death undoubtedly greatly improved the accuracy and breadth of the original work. "Johnson&#39;s Gerard", with over 2700 woodcuts, is almost half as long again as the first edition. Johnson was commissioned by the publishers to produce this amended and enlarged edition at short notice in order to forestall Parkinson&#39;s Theatrum Botanicum, which was believed to be imminent, (it finally appeared in 1640), and he complains bitterly in his preface that he "was forced to performe this task within the compasse of a yeare." Almost all of the woodcuts were from a different source from Gerard&#39;s (mostly from Plantin&#39;s stock) but some of the figures Johnson drew himself, notably the famous bunch of bananas on page 1516. This had been to given him on 10th April 1633 by Dr. Argent, President of the College of Physicians of London, who had received it from Bermuda. Johnson&#39;s drawing is the first illustration of bananas to be published in England. Having drawn and described them, he says, the stalke with the fruit thereon I hanged up in my shop, where it became ripe about the beginning of May, and lasted until June ... it did eate somewhat like a Muske-Melon." The shop was in Snow Hill, in the City, and it must have been there also that John Payne studied this unknown fruit before incorporating it into his engraved title-page. Cf. Bradley I, p.283; Henrey 156; Hunt 230; Nissen BBI 698; STC 11752

Maps varying sizes Ca. (38-43 cm.) x (50-53 cm.). With 67 fine engraved maps, 40 by N. Sanson and G. Sanson, 8 by De la Rue, 7 by Duval, 10 by Tavernier (done by Sanson), 2 by Philippus Briet (Chez Pierre Mariette, Henri le Roy fecit, and Michel van Lochom). The first 22 fully coloured !!, the last 45 outline coloured.

The last map with 2 small repairs in upper margin, not affecting image. Otherwise the maps are clean and fine, all in contemporary handcolouring.. This is a fine composite atlas by the engravers of the French 17th century school. Most of the 67 maps are by Nicolas Sanson and his son Guillaume Sanson (40 + 10, as the Tavernier-maps are done by Sanson).Nicolas Sanson (1600-1667) is generally thought of as the father of the 17th century school of map-making, maps which are known for their charm and elegance in the fine lettering and delicate engraving. Sanson published an atlas of France, world atlasses and another atlas with the title "Cartes Générales de toutes les Parties du Monde (1658), containing 82 maps. After his death, the firm was run by his sons Guillaume and Adrian. After 1670 the firm's map-making material was taken over by Herbert Jaillot.
