QUIÑONES (Juan de) ].
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 rare … [Click Below for Full Description]

Leyde, J. Maire, 1636. ____ Seconde édition; la première augmentée des commentaires d'Adrian Toll. Ouvrage de la plus grande importance pour l'histoire de la minéralogie et de la gemmologie. Boodt a tenté la premier de classer les minéraux. Il en connaît près de 600 et décrit leurs propriétés, leur valeur et leur usage médical. Illustré par 43 bois gravés dans le texte et 2 tableaux dépliants. Les gravures montrent des pierres, des cristaux, des machines pour tailler et polir les pierres précieuses et même des fossiles.

Illustrated by 43 woodcuts in text. "In his Gemmarum et Lapidum Historia, Boodt made the first attempt at a systematic description of minerals, dividing the minerals into great and small, rare and common, hard and soft, combustible and incombustible, transparent and opaque. He uses a scale of hardness expressed in three degrees and notes the crystalline forms of some minerals (triangular, quadratic, and hexangular). Boodt criticizes some of the views of Aristotle, Pliny, Paracelsus, and others. He also mentions atoms. He enumerates about 600 minerals that he knows from personal observation, and describes their properties, values, imitations, and medical applications. There are als … [Click Below for Full Description]

Internally little browned only, a few pencil markings, final 4 leaves with single wormtrack affecting a few words of index. Otherwise a fine and unstained copy. ----VD17 39:113722S; Wellcome I, 5928. - FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE (without errata), of exceptional rarity (only one copy recorded at auction in the past 50 years). The physician and scholar Daniel Sennert (1572-1637) united various atomistic theories in the early 17th century and advocated the spread of atomism. Jungius further developed the ideas he published. In his Hypomnemata physicae (Notes on Physics), Sennert summarized his theories, emphasizing the imperceptibility of the 'minima', but referring to observations that suggest their existence. When water evaporates, its particles do not disintegrate, but become undetectably small. His efforts to unite corpuscular theories with the Aristotelian theory of matter brought him recognition in the course of his life, but was later criticized. The assumption that the original atoms are linked to hardly divisible prima mixta influenced the teachings of Robert Boyle (1627-91) and Joachim Jungius (1587-1657) "(see NDB XXIV, 262 f.). Some issues include two leaves of errata which are not present in our copy (as absent from the Wellcome and VD17 co … [Click Below for Full Description]

GERARD, John.
London: Adam Islip, Joice Norton, and Richard Whitakers, 1636. Thick folio, with more than 2500 woodcut illustrations of plants, as well as numerous other woodcut decorations; contemporary sprinkled calf, spine ornately gilt in wide compartments, red morocco label; armorial bookplate of "Walford" and 17th-century signature of Elizabeth Taylor of Wimbish Hall. A splendid copy of one of the most famous English herbals, here in the second printing of the best edition, Johnson's 'very much enlarged and amended' version which first appeared in 1633. This massive herbal made the barber-surgeon and horticulturist Gerard (1545-1612) famous when it was first published in 1597, and it remained highly esteemed for more than 200 years. Gerard's work was based on his experience in his own substantial gardens and as superintendent of several others in and around London, including various properties owned by William Cecil, first Baron Burghley, whose gardens were famous for their variety of plants and trees. Despite claims that his work was derivative, 'Gerard contributed greatly towards the advancement of the knowledge of plants in England, and in his Herball described and illustrated several hundreds of... native plants, including about 182 which were additional to those recorded in earlier works... ' (Henrey). In 1632 the successors of Gerard's first publisher commissioned Thomas Johnson (d. 1644), the well-known apothecary and botanist, to prepare a second edition. He did this so well and added so much (a valuable comprehensive historical introduction as well as half again as many wo … [Click Below for Full Description]

"This celebrated encyclopedic work, by far the most thorough and complete up to date, easily surpasses Bacci, Marbod, and Leonardus in quantity and quality of information; it is further distinguished by its intimate knowledge of the art of the lapidary and must therefore be regarded as the first treatise to offer more than the briefest of views of gem cutting" (Sinkankas 778, about the first edition from 1609). This edition was revised and enlarged by Adrian Toll, professor of medicine at Leyden. Many of the woodcuts were improved, and several of them appeared here for the first time. The extensive index of twenty pages allowed ready access to Boodt's magnificent treatise. Very Good.

Janssonius, Johann / Johannes / Jan. (1588 - 1664)
Janssonius,, 1636. Amsterdam, Janssonius, 1636. Original, hand-coloured engraving. The engraving (the plate) itself 50 cm x 38.5 cm. Mounted: c. 69 cm x 58 cm Original Map with beautifully coloured cartouche and border-colours. Differing Mileage-scale shown in "Milliaria Hibernica" and "Milliaria Anglica" . Johannes Janssonius (1588, Arnhem ? buried July 11, 1664, Amsterdam) (born Jan Janszoon, in English often incorrect Jan Jansson) was a Dutch cartographer and publisher who lived and worked in Amsterdam in the 17th century.nnJanssonius was born in Arnhem, the son of Jan Janszoon the Elder, a publisher and bookseller. In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. Elisabeth Hondius died in 1627 and he remarried one Elisabeth Carlier in 1629. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius. Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with "English County Maps", a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore … [Click Below for Full Description]

BACON, Francis, Viscount St Alban.
SECOND EDITION. 1 vol, small 8vo, (ix)94pp, 7-1/8" x 5-1/2", early paper wrappers. Housed in a green morocco slipcase.Second edition of one of the earliest, if not the first, of maxims of the English Law (Rees 1: 20). CBEL 1: 870. We have here but twenty-five out of three hundred Rules which [Bacon] had collected: 'I thought good, before I brought them all into form, to publish some few, that by the taste of other men's opinion...I might receive either approbation in my own course, or better advice for the altering of others which remain. ' The excellence of that which we possess makes us grieve that we have so small a proportion of that which the author designed: 'Though some great masters of the Law did outgo him in bulk...yet in the science of the grounds, and mysteries of the Law, he was exceeded by none'--Preface to Blackstone's Anal. (Allibone, 90). None of Bacon's legal works were published before his death in 1626; the first edition of this work (often bound with "The Use of Law", probably not by Bacon) appeared in 1630. A very good copy of this cornerstone of English Law.

Selden, John.
J. & Th. Maire, 1636. Der Titel lautet weiter: Primo, Mare, ex Iure Naturae, seu Gentium, omnium hominum non esse Commune, sed Dominii privati, seu Proprietatis capax, paiter ac Tellurem, esse demonstratur. Secundo, Serenissimum Magnae Britanniae Regem Maris circumflui, ut individuae atque perpetuae Imperii Britannici appendicis, Dominum esse, asseritur. - Pergamentband der Zeit. - STC 22175.7 Kat. Kammergericht Berlin S. 1459. - Zweite Ausgabe der berühmten Schrift, die EA war 1635 in London erschienen. Schon 1618 hatte Selden das Essay wohl niedergeschrieben, anlässlich der Konferenz zwischen Holland und England, an der auch Grotius teilnahm. Da James I. aber tief in der Schuld des dänischen Königs stand, erhielt Selden keine Erlaubnis zur Veröffentlichung. Erst 1635, auf Wunsch Charles I, nahm Selden die Arbeit am Mare Clausum wieder auf und veröffentlichte das Werk. Charles I. was so pleased by Seldens performance that, by an order of the privy counsil, it was directed that one copy should be kept in the archives of the council, another in the court of exchequer, and a third in the court of the Admiralty (DNB). Zustand: Vorderdeckel etwas aufgebogen, etwas angestaubt und fleckig. Innen: Titel mehrfach alt gestempelt, vorderer fliegender Vorsatz mit kleinem Randausriss, leicht stockfleckig und gebräunt. - Second edition of the famous work, bound in contemporary vellum.

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

First edition, Schuh's issue B (no stated priority) with the dedication to Charles de Neufville. "Very scarce. Compendium of all the author ever discovered or read about the subject of mineralogy. It was published posthumously from notes he left by his Order at Lyon six years after his death. Printed in a double column format in a relatively small type-size, the work is a vast storehouse of all things mineralogical, including new ideas, restatements of earlier authors, observations and superstitious belief. The uncritical selection of material led Webster in his Metallographia (London, 1671, p. 29) to criticize the author as too digressive and as mixing tares with the wheat. Partington thinks the use of the term 'Mineralogia' in the title is the first modern usage of the word... "The work opens by listing the evils and benefits of mineralogy. Mining is considered dangerous because of the lurking underground spirits...the author notes that the study of mineralogy helps one to understand the bible. It provides medicines and money, ornaments for religious purposes, tools used in agriculture, industry, painting, music and alchemy. Cesi then answers the question he posed earlier and declares mineralogy to be a true philosophy, worthy of careful study...

MACHIAVELLI, Niccolò.
London: by Thomas Paine for William Hills and Daniel Pakeman,, 1636. translated out of the Italian; With some marginall animadversions noting and taxing his errours. By E[dward]. D[acres]. Duodecimo (142 x 82 mm). Contemporary panelled calf, rebacked with old spine laid down, red morocco label. Without first and last blanks A1 and Ee12; sig. B1 cancelled, as usual, the correct text printed on preceding a11?12. Early ownership inscription of Richard Dowling, Fleet Street, on blank verso of title. Threadlike marginal worming affecting title and next half dozen leaves, affecting the frame but not the text, a little tight in the gutter, but a very good copy. First edition in English of Machiavelli's Discorsi sopra la prima deca di Tito Livio (1531). Machiavelli's works had been circulated in manuscript and widely discussed in England, but not published until the breakdown of press censorship in the period leading up to the Civil War. This edition was followed in 1640 by the same translator's version of The Prince. "Machiavelli founded the science of modern politics on the study of mankind ? it should be remembered that a parallel work to 'The Prince' was his historical essay on the first ten books of Livy" (PMM 63). STC notes two variants of the title, with no precedence between them: in the present variant, the word "animadversions" is printed in roman; in the other, it is printed in italic.

Mounted: c. 69 cm x 58 cm Original Map with beautifully coloured cartouche and border-colours. Differing Mileage-scale shown in "Milliaria Hibernica" and "Milliaria Anglica" . Johannes Janssonius (1588, Arnhem – buried July 11, 1664, Amsterdam) (born Jan Janszoon, in English often incorrect Jan Jansson) was a Dutch cartographer and publisher who lived and worked in Amsterdam in the 17th century. Janssonius was born in Arnhem, the son of Jan Janszoon the Elder, a publisher and bookseller. In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. Elisabeth Hondius died in 1627 and he remarried one Elisabeth Carlier in 1629. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius. Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with "English County Maps", a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions.
