        Traduccion latina que ha hecho el Doctor Señonqui en Lengua Castellana, de un tratado que compuso en Latina Guillermo Vandevoy. E. C. D. D.

      Impressa en Valanson (Madrid?), por Jacome Corifio, 1636. - in-4. 99ff. (dont 98 numérotés). (1f.blanc). Plein vélin souple de l'époque. Edition Originale de cet ouvrage curieux de Juan de Quiñones, magistrat madrilène de la cour de Philippe IV. Ce violent réquisitoire contre les Français est présenté sous la forme d'un traité historique qui disserte sur les mœurs françaises, les relations de l'Espagne et de la France depuis le 14e siècle, ainsi que sur la supposée alliance des Français avec les Turcs pendant le siècle d'or. C'est un livre obscur à plusieurs égards. D'une part, le lieu d'impression et le nom de l'imprimeur ne sont répertoriés nulle part et paraissent avoir été inventés. D'autre part, certaines sources attribuent l'ouvrage au médecin hollandais Guillaume Van Den Bossche, mais cette hypothèse semble être erronée et le nom de Vandevoy indiqué au titre paraît n'être qu'une fantaisie. L'ouvrage contient deux curieuses gravures à l'eau forte de Francisco Navarro, graveur espagnol au sujet duquel Bénézit indique qu'on connaît de lui "des planches d'armoiries parues en 1632 à Madrid et le titre pour un ouvrage militaire publié en 1642. Il a également gravé des titres pour divers ouvrages d'architecture et des portraits d'Horace, Perse et Juvénal". Juan de Quiñones a laissé plusieurs ouvrages remarquables, tous écrits en espagnol, parmi lesquels un traité sur les sauterelles (1620), un discours contre les gitans (1631), une relation des éruptions du Vésuve (1632) et un curieux traité de minéralogie sur le charbon (1634). Le présent volume est une véritable rareté. Nous n'avons pu en localiser qu'un seul exemplaire dans les collections américaines (à l'Hispanic Society of America de New York, cf. N.U.C.) et seulement deux exemplaires dans les bibliothèques publiques espagnoles (Biblioteca Nacional et Biblioteca de Oviedo). Très bon exemplaire dans son vélin d'origine. Palau, 245389.

        A Paraphrase upon the Psalmes of David and upon the Hymnes dispersed throughout the Old and New Testaments

      London 1636. - Small 8vo., pp. [14], 224, 227-258, 257-271 (text complete despite pagination); internally a very crisp, fresh copy; in contemporary black morocco, gilt with a double frame, fleurons to inner corners and a central wreath, spine gilt, gilt edges, ties wanting; very slightly rubbed; ownership inscriptions of A. Gowran to title-page and of the judge and collector of Elizabethan literature John Duke Coleridge to endpapers, with the latter's note that it was bought at the 1871 sale of the library of S. John Simeon; bookplates of the antiquary John Adair Hawkins and of Robert S. Pirie.First edition, a fine copy of these psalm paraphrases by the poet and adventurer George Sandys (1578-1644) who was hailed by Dryden as 'the best versifier' of his age. Sandys's Paraphrase upon the Psalmes is one of the most highly regarded collections of early Biblical verse paraphrase, notable for its anti-Calvinist theology and its effective combination of 'a formal delight in "the beauty of holiness" with personal devotion' (Oxford DNB). The commendatory poem is by Lucius Cary, Viscount Falkland, the founder of the Great Tew Circle, who was an enthusiastic advocate of Sandys's religious poetry. Sandys is best remembered as a traveller, first in the Middle East, and later in America as the treasurer of the newly-established colony of Virginia. After the colony was almost wiped out by Native Americans, Sandys himself led the counter attack. In quieter moments in Virginia he found the time to compose his famous translation of Ovid's Metamorphoses, which influenced Milton, Pope, and Dryden among others.A second edition of Sandys's Paraphrase appeared in folio in 1638, adding paraphrases of Job, Ecclesiastes, and the Lamentations of Jeremiah as well as musical settings by Henry Lawes.STC 21724; Pforzheimer 851. This is the issue with no full-stop after David on the title-page. Language: English [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      María de Quiñones, Madrid 1636 - 14.3x19.5. 4h. 140 folios. Pergamino de época, el título rotulado en la lomera. Falta un trozo de lomo, algunas antigua manchas en los márgenes, papel de algunas hojas amarronado (esto se debe principalmente a la escasa calidad del papel empleado para la edición). Esta es la 2ª edición; la primera es de 1622. Palau 182383. La biografía de la impresora María de Quiñones es fascinante: fue viuda del impresor Pedro Madrigal cuando se casa en 1602 con Juan de la Cuesta, futuro impresor del Quijote. En 1607 Cuesta se marcha a Sevilla, con intención de embarcar a las Américas, dejando la imprenta al cuidado de su esposa, su suegra, Maria Rodriguez de Ribalde, y el impresor Jerónimo de Salazar. Deja a su mujer embarazada y la imprenta con deudas. Tras 59 años a cargo del negocio, Quiñones lo traspasa en 1666, y muere tres años después. Según Astrana Marín, era analfabeta.

Slightly browned with some occasional small spots, leaf I1 of ad 1 torn, affecting part of the text. Bindings stained and bookblock detached from binding at front hinge. Overall a fair copy.

        Les images de tous les saincts et saintes de l'annee suivant le martyrologe Romain

      Paris: Israël Henriet, 1636. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. Folio (275 x 185 mm). 488 etchings (215 x 120 mm and similar) on 124 sheets including title with the arms of Richelieu, frontispiece, dedication and text. Contemporary vellum. Good impressions of the second states (the frontispiece third state), watermarks Posthorn (similar to Lieure 47). Occasional very pale foxing and toning at the sheet edges, the title-page worn, otherwise in good condition. Provenance: purchased from Davis, 1956. FIRST EDITION, second states. This is one of Callot's final works, dedicated to Cardinal Richelieu. Callot worked on the series from 1632 to 1635, dying with the plates still in his possession. It is characteristic of his late works made at Nancy, which were mostly of a religious nature. The plates here "differed from his contemporaneous work in method, for often they were almost completely drawn in line, with very little shading ... The frontispiece is Callot's Tintoretto-like Assumption of the Virgin" (Bechtel, Jacques Callot, 1955, p. 32, pls. 173-5). Lieure 807-1295.

        Amthal Luqman al-hakim]. Locmani sapientis fabulae et selecta quaedam Arabum adagia. Cum interpretatione latina & notis Thomae Erpenii.

      Leiden, Jean Maire, 1636. - 4to. 60, (2) pp. Woodcut vignette to title. Text in Latin and Arabic. Early 19th century boards covered with blue brocade paper. Second edition, following Erpenius's 1615 editio princeps. - Lokman was a legendary sage of the pre-Muhammedanian era, occasionally said to have been king of Yemen, a prophet, or an Abessinian slave. This late 13th-c. adaptation of a Syrian translation of Aesop's Fables was attached to his name. Since their first publication in Europe in 1615, the "Fables" constitute an obligatory passage for learning Arabic, which explains the proliferation of versions (including those for school use). The collection was edited by Thomas Erpenius (1584-1624), professor of oriental languages at Leiden. In 1613, after his return from Paris, he set up a private press with types cut specially for him. - Some fingerstaining, waterstaining and duststaining; lower corner of t. p. torn off (no loss to text); an early student's pen scribblings on title page, and a later owner's pencil notes in Arabic in margins and on final flyleaf.

Dunkirkers, serving the Spanish Navy, were a major threat to Dutch trade and shipping, taking hundreds of ships during the Dutch revolt. The present pamphlet discusses several commanders of warships, including the Zeeland captains Jacob Pense, Gerrit Verhagen, Jan Evertsen de Jonge and Jacob Verhelle, who captured no fewer than 30 Dunkirk ships in just one year. Jan Evertsen de Jonge was the son of the famous admiral Jan Evertsen, who had captured the infamous Duinkerk privateer Jacques Colaert in 1636 and later fought several battles in the first and second Anglo-Dutch war. The pamphlet concludes with a list of captured ships mentioned in the text. It seems to have been written to advocate the fitting out of more warships to protect Dutch (or more particularly Zeeland) trade.Spine damaged, otherwise in very good condition.

        Les images de tous les saincts et saintes de l'annee suivant le martyrologe Romain

      Paris: Israël Henriet, 1636. Folio (275 x 185 mm). 488 etchings (215 x 120 mm and similar) on 124 sheets including title with the arms of Richelieu, frontispiece, dedication and text. Contemporary vellum. Good impressions of the second states (the frontispiece third state), watermarks Posthorn (similar to Lieure 47). Occasional very pale foxing and toning at the sheet edges, the title-page worn, otherwise in good condition. Provenance: purchased from Davis, 1956. FIRST EDITION, second states. This is one of Callot's final works, dedicated to Cardinal Richelieu. Callot worked on the series from 1632 to 1635, dying with the plates still in his possession. It is characteristic of his late works made at Nancy, which were mostly of a religious nature. The plates here "differed from his contemporaneous work in method, for often they were almost completely drawn in line, with very little shading ... The frontispiece is Callot's Tintoretto-like Assumption of the Virgin" (Bechtel, Jacques Callot, 1955, p. 32, pls. 173-5). Lieure 807-1295. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow.

"In his work Boodt... enumerated 600 minerals that he knows from personal observation, and describes their properties, values, imitations and medical applications. There are also tables of values of diamonds according to their size and a short description of the polishing of precious stones" (DSB).

        Greece. "????s. Graecia Sophiani

      Greece: A Paris " "Chez N Langlois rue Saint Jaques àla Victoire" c1640-60. Copper engraved map of Greece after Ortelius by Henri Le Roy. Original outline colour; verso blank. Decorative title cartouche and scale. The map by Henri Le Roy seems to have first been published by Michel Van Lochom in 1636 and then by J Boisseau in 1643 in his " Tresor des Cartes Géographiques". Thereafter the plate seems to have passed through a number of hands including that of Pierre Mariette who was stepfather to Nicolas Langlois the present publisher. Dark impression; signs of former framing, leading to toning and tape to edges on verso; dampstain to lower margin; centrefold split, due to removal of guard, repaired to verso. Henri Le Roy (1579-1652) was a Parisian engraver. Little is known about Le Roy, however the British Museum have a set of plates by him depicting insects "Le Jardin de Sauterelles et Papillons," France, c1650 which they believe were intended to serve as a pattern for craftsmen working in the decorative arts such as embroidery or metalwork. The Victoria and Albert Museum also have a further series of engravings" this series of seven frieze designs, which could have been put to use as designs for architectural ornaments, textiles or other objects" Both of these fit with the publisher Michel van Lochom "Graveur et Imprimaeur du Roy" who published a number of works on design and ornamentation and may well have asked Le Roy an engraver known to him to copy Ortelius map as interest increased in cartography in France. "The practice of plagiarizing prints or maps seems to have been common in the seventeenth century,and it does not seem to have been dishonorable: consider, for example, the copies of Dutch maps from the Nether- lands (of Artois and Boulonnaise, Hainaut and Cambrésis, Luxembourg, and Savoy) signed by Pierre Duval, the nephew of Nicolas I Sanson d'Abbeville, in 1646 and published by Pierre I Mariette." [Pastoureau",Les Atlas Français" ,pp497?500."] Langlois, François (1588-1647) French. was a painter, publisher-printseller,and bookseller who lived on rue Saint-Jacques "AuxColonnes d'Hercules." his widow married Pierre Mariette II in 1655. In 1637, only 5 percent of his stoc kconsisted of topographical plates or blocks. The rest was composed of ornamental engravings In 1644, he bought part of Tavernier's stock. In 1655, eight years after Langlois's death, his son Nicolas I Langlois distributed the maps of French geographers, such as Tassin, Sanson,and Duval, as well as those of foreign cartographers, suchas Nicolaas Visscher and Vincenzo Coronelli. His own son was another Nicolas (c.1670-1707) who took over his father's shop in 1703.

        Prodromus Coptus sive Aegyptiacus cum linguae Coptae

      Woodcut vignette on title, woodcut illus. in the text, & many exotic type fonts used. 12 p.l., 338 pp. 4to, late 18th-cent. half calf & marbled boards (some browning as is usual with this book), spine gilt, black morocco lettering piece on spine. Rome: Propaganda Fide, 1636. First edition. This present work is "the first Coptic grammar to appear in the West, [it] was for centuries the basis for Coptic studies, along with Kircher's later work Lingua aegyptiaca restituta (1643). Kircher had encountered hieroglyphs during his tertianship (a one-year period of religious study in preparation for the ministry) in Speier, and he was convinced - correctly - that Coptic was a late vestige of ancient Egyptian. While at Avignon he was given several Coptic manuscripts by his friend and patron Nicolas Claude Fabri de Peiresc. Later in Rome Kircher acquired an Arabic-Coptic vocabulary brought from Egypt by Pietro della Valle. On the basis of these, and with Peiresc's encouragement, Kircher compiled the Prodromus. As the title reveals, it was to be a precursor of a later work on the Egyptian language, perhaps the Lingua aegyptiaca restituta. In both works he stresses the importance of Coptic for interpreting hieroglyphics. Because 'things Egyptian' were the rage in seventeenth-century Europe, the Prodromus attained immediate popularity and firmly established Kircher's reputation as a scholar… "Type fonts include Greek, Syriac, Arabic, Hebrew, Estranghelo, Samaritan, Armenian, Chaldean, Rashi, Amharic, 'Saracen,' hieroglyphic, and of course Coptic - a tour de force of seventeenth-century typography."-Merrill, Athanasius Kircher, 3. This book is virtually a type specimen of the fonts possessed by the new established (1626) Press of the Propaganda Fide. Very good copy. Stamp on free front endpaper of the "Biblioteca Privata Pasquale Regina" and a signature on blank portion of title. Dunnhaupt notes two settings of the title-page (no priority): 1. with the insignia of the dedicatee, Francesco Barberini, and 2. a medallion of Christ and Apostles (as in our copy). ❧ Dunnhaupt, II, pp. 996-97.

The only collected edition, containing the two important works "Récepte véritable" (first 1563) and "Discours admirables" (first 1580), all of great rarity. "Palissy first became famous through his technique for making a 'rustic' enameled earthenware, a skill which gained him the appointment of 'inventeur des rustiques figulines du roy'. His 'Discours admirables' gives Palissy's views on a wide array of subjects, the most significant being those on hydrology and paleontology. He recognized the relation between fossils and both living and extinct species, and was one of the first to hold a reasonably correct view of the process of petrification" (Norman 1629 for his "Discours"). Very Good.

        Elementa Jurisprudentiae, Definitionibus, Regulis & Sententiis.

      1636 - The First English Writer on Jurisprudence Zouch Richard [1590-1661]. Elementa Jurisprudentiae, Definitionibus, Regulis & Sententiis Selectioribus Juris Civilis, Illustrata; Accesserunt Descriptiones Juris & Judicii, Sacri, Militaris, Et Maritimi. Amsterdam: Sumptibus Joh. Nevilsoni, [1652]. [x], 439 pp. Four parts with continuous pagination and divisional title pages. 12mo. (5" x 2-3/4"). Recent period-style quarter calf over marbled boards, lettering piece and gilt ornaments to spine. Light toning to text. A Handsome copy. * Third edition, an issue of the Elzevier edition of 1652 with a cancel title page. One of England's greatest civilians, Zouch was an advocate of Doctors' Commons, Judge of the High Court of Admiralty and Regius Professor of Civil Law at Oxford. He published treatises on a broad range of legal topics and is best known for his contributions to international law. He is equally important as the first English writer to publish works on jurisprudence. Elementa Jurisprudentiae is an ambitious general study that lays out a general theory of general principles applicable to all branches and systems of legal science. The second, third and fourth parts, Descriptio Juris et Judicii Sacri; Ad Quam Leges, Quae Religionem, Et Piam Causam Respiciunt, Referuntur, Descriptio Juris & Judicii Militaris; Ad Quam Leges, Quae rem Militarem et Ordinem Personarum and Descriptio Juris et Judicii Maritimi; Ad Quam quae Navigationem et Negotiationem Maritimam Respiciunt, Referuntur are distinct essays on topics in English ecclesiastical law, the laws of war and military discipline and laws concerning ships and sea-borne cargo. The latter two essays also deal with international law. The first two editions were published in Oxford in 1629 and 1636. The following two editions, with different additional contents, were issued in Holland in 1652 and 1665. According to Willems, some copies of this title were printed by other printers, some with cancel title pages, others with counterfeit Elzevier title pages. See Willems, Les Elzevier: Histoire et Annales Typographiques 717. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
