JANSSON, Jan.
Amsterdam, c.1636, German text edition. Original colour. 410 x 500mm. Small repair to bottom of centre fold, well outside the engraved area.

John Gerard; Thomas Johnson [Rembert Dodoens]
Adam Islip; Joice Norton; Richard Whitakers, London. pp 18 [manuscript] pp 39-1562. Incomplete 1636 third edition of Gerard's Herball which contains the vast bulk of Thomas Johnson's expanded text but lacks the preliminaries and title page, the first 38 pages of text, p355-6, the final pages 1563-1630 and the printed index that follows. Even in its incomplete state the book still measures four inches across the spine and is robustly bound in full calf, probably very late eighteenth or early nineteenth century, rubbed and worn to extremities but sound and perfectly usable. At the time of the binding a new manuscript index has been bound in before the printed text which runs to 17 pages, written on Britannia watermarked paper in two columns again around 1800. The first and last few leaves are browned and dog-earred where the previous binding failed during the eighteenth century. A note at the head of the first printed leaf states in an old hand: 'Pages with Plates from 39 to 1562. Page 355 missing.' A little close cropped at times, the text is largely in good to very good with the marvellous woodcuts present throughout and the cornucopious accompanying letterpress text. Owing to its size Gerard's Herball is frequently encountered in more or less incomplete copies - this is one of the nicer ones we have had. This edition of the Herball from 1636 is part of the revived version of the text produced two decades after Gerard's death when it was significantly expanded in size and scope. First published in 1597, the Herball became the most influential botany book in English in the 1 … [Click Below for Full Description]

MITELLI, Agostino.
''Ag.no Mitelli / Ag.no Parisino e Gio. Battista Negroponti / Forma in Bolognia''. S.d. (1636 ca). in-folio piccolo (mm 254x191), legatura coeva in cartone rustico. Prima edizione in prima tiratura, estremamente rara, di questa serie di 12 rami raffiguranti fantasiose cornici, con spazio centrale bianco; in alcuni casi il Mitelli si è divertito a creare una duplice cornice, una più grande sopra e una più piccola al di sotto, ambedue con spazio centrale bianco. La serie, inventata ed incisa da Agostino (1609 -1660), padre di Giuseppe Maria Mitelli, si compone di un ricco repertorio di asimmetriche cornici composte da volute, grottesche, nastri, conchiglie, sirene, delfini, cornucopie, festoni, fronde, leoni, putti, che conferiscono alla raccolta un effetto decisamente barocco e quasi ipnotico. La funzione di questa serie doveva essere decisamente pratica servendo come "pattern book", una sorta di libro di modelli, per gli artisti a lui contemporanei. Esemplare in prima tiratura, avanti l'inserimento del titolo all'interno della prima cornice, ma con le indicazioni tipografiche espresse ai piedi del muro di mattoni su cui è appesa la cornice. La prima tavola è l'unica che preveda l'inserimento di un paesaggio sullo sfondo. La presente tiratura non è presente nel Berlin Katalog ed è sconosciuta a Guilmard. La collezione Berlin comprende solo la seconda e terza edizione della presente serie, pubblicate dal Rossi in Roma alcuni anni dopo, mentre Guilmard ricorda solo la seconda tiratura della prima edizione "Ce titre est dans un Cartouche suspendu à un mur".

HESIUS (Gulielmus)
Antuverpiae [Antwerp] Ex Officina Plantinana Balthasaris Moreti, 1636. 12mo, 146 x 77 mms., pp. [2] 3 - 404 [405 - 406 privileges, 407 colophon, 408 blank], with woodcut holy motto IHS on title-page, 2 engraved vignette of angelic cherub on page 6, triangle image on page 8, cipher on page 10, geometric design on page 18, 41 engraved emblems within text in de Fide, 30 emblems in Spe, and 40 emblems in Charitate, additional engraved emblems on pages 147, and 263, all images present, two early names in ink on title-page, contemporary vellum, title in ink on spine, with bookplate printed in red and black on the verso of the title-page, of The Friary, Stratford, London, the glue from which has browned the title-page; otherwise a very good copy, with clear impressions of the emblems. Hesius' Emblemata Sacra is probably the best-known of the books of sacred emblems published in the late 16th century and throughout the 17th century, though not all the images in this volume could be designated sacred. Alison Saunders in The Seventeenth-century French Emblem: A Study in Diversity provides information about the print history of the emblems: "In the original version published by Lucas Jennis in 1622 the collection comprised only fifty emblems, but in 1624 it was doubled in size, and the original collection became Part 1 of a 2-part collection: Emblemata sacra...." The woodcuts are by Jan Christoffel Jegher after Erasmus Quellinus. The emblems are striking and natural.

(FEMMES - HOMOSEXUALITE FEMININE). BENSERADE (Isaac de).
In-4 de (8)pp. non chiffrée, 95pp., (1)p. non chiffrée pour le privilège. Couverture de papier marbré du XVIIIème (qqs. brunissures, cerne claire en angle sup. de qqs. pages). Bon exemplaire. Edition originale (l'achevé est à la date du 30 novembre 1636) rare de la première pièce à évoquer ouvertement l'homosexualité féminine en France. Au sujet ovidien, cette comédie relate la métamorphose en homme d'Iphis, jeune fille que son père avait dès avant sa naissance promise à la mort du fait de son sexe, et que sa mère sauva en l'élevant aux yeux de tous pour un garçon. Devenue adulte, Iphis épouse Iante, qu'elle aime d'un amour partagé depuis l'enfance. Elle ne peut évidemment pas cacher la réalité à Iante, pour leur plus grand désespoir ; mais au lendemain de la nuit de noces, l'heureuse intervention de la déesse Isis fait du travestissement d'Iphis sa véritable nature. Mais à la différence d'Ovide, le dramaturge situe la métamorphose d'Iphis après le mariage. Ainsi les deux jeunes « épouses » peuvent alors raconter la volupté de leur nuit de noces : « J'oubliais quelquefois que j'étais fille, / Je ne reçus jamais tant de contentements....». Iante ne semble préoccupée, quant à elle, que du qu'en-dira-t-on : « il faut que je l'avoue ; Ce mariage est doux, j'y trouve assez d'appas / Et si l'on n'en riait, je ne m'en plaindrais pas / Si la fille épousait une fille comme elle, / Sans offenser le ciel et la loi naturelle, / Mon cœur assurément ne serait point fâché ».

Light age browning, heavier to a few gatherings, faint spotting in places, lightly smudged offsetting and marginal repair to two ll. A good, well-margined copy in C17 vellum over boards. A good copy of Athanasius Kircher’s fundamental study of the Coptic language. Kircher (1602-80) was a German Jesuit, author of works on linguistics, medicine, geology, biology, magnetism, visual perception and music. Beside Hebrew and Syriac, essential for biblical exegesis, Kircher taught non-European languages at the Collegium Romanum, including Chinese and Egyptian. Based on epigraphic inscriptions and texts in the Vatican Library, his ‘Prodromus’ was the first of several ground-breaking works on Egyptology. Kircher shifted orientalist and esoteric Renaissance antiquarianism, led by Valeriano’s ‘Hieroglyphica’ (1556) and based on Horapollon’s ancient theories, onto the plane of linguistic science. Whilst most of his translations from Coptic and Egyptian are now deemed incorrect, he was the first to explain the phonetic value of hieroglyphs and to prove that Coptic was the precursor of the Egyptian language. With masterful scholarly syncretism, the ‘Prodromus’ dissects the history and workings of Coptic—e.g., its etymology from the city of Copta and its institutions, the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hesius' Emblemata Sacra is probably the best-known of the books of sacred emblems published in the late 16th century and throughout the 17th century, though not all the images in this volume could be designated sacred. Alison Saunders in The Seventeenth-century French Emblem: A Study in Diversity provides information about the print history of the emblems: "In the original version published by Lucas Jennis in 1622 the collection comprised only fifty emblems, but in 1624 it was doubled in size, and the original collection became Part 1 of a 2-part collection: Emblemata sacra...." The woodcuts are by Jan Christoffel Jegher after Erasmus Quellinus. The emblems are striking and natural.

It seems likely that the ownership inscription at the mid-point of the title-page reads "Marius Albericius". Wikipedia notes that his name was rendered a great number of different ways, the surname being given "as Albrizj, Alberici, Albericius and Albericci"; Alberizzi (1609-1680) was the powerful seventeenth-century Cardinal of San Giovanni a Porta Latina in Rome. The almost illegible autograph beneath the imprint seems to read "Petri Farnese/ Farnesse." Cardinal Alberizzi's mother was Giulia Farnese, and his father was Giovanni Alberizzi, Prince of Vetrana; so this copy of Emblemata Sacra enjoys a very distinctive provenance. The Farnese family is renowned for great ecclesiastical heights in the history of the Catholic church – Pope Paul III, Cardinal Alessandro Farnese, and Cardinal Odoard … [Click Below for Full Description]

Title within fine architectural border, woodcut arms of Charles I of verso of first leaf, those of Stafford on A3, large woodcut initials and grotesque head and tail-pieces, slightly later autograph of “Wm, Conyngham” at head of title with price mark. Minor oil stain to very outer margin of title, rare marginal spot or very minor stain. A very good copy, crisp and clean with good margins in contemporary English or Irish calf, covers bordered with a double blind rule, later red morocco label gilt, all edges red. A very good copy of the first edition of these very rare Irish statutes printed during Thomas Wentworth, 1st Earl of Strafford’s tenure as Lord Deputy of Ireland with his and Charles I arms, in London under a false imprint of Dublin. These statutes covering civil, criminal, and administrative law were passed during the Irish Parliament called in 1634-5. “The Parliament called in Ireland in 1634 is an event that has been surprisingly little discussed by English historians, despite its obvious value as a guide to government thinking on parliaments during the years of Personal Rule. In fact,it was the years of the so called personal rule that witnessed the only successful parliaments of Charles reign - the ‘Coronation Parliament’ of 1633 in Scotland and the Irish parliament of 1634-5. Indeed Wentworth stated frankly in a letter to his cousin George Butler that the 1634 parliament had been ‘the only ripe Parliament that hath been gathered in my Time, and all the res … [Click Below for Full Description]

Legatura in piena pergamena semifloscia, titolo manoscritto al dorso, tracce di due bindelle.Prima edizione, seconda tiratura con dedica epistolaria a Charles de Neufville. Rara opera, compendio di autori e argomenti sulla mineralogia; diviso in cinque sezioni: la prima tratta delle facoltà della Mineralogia (ritenendo che sia una filosofia pura), la seconda delle proprietà dei materiali, degli aspetti economici e commerciali, di colori e pigmenti; il terzo dei principi interni dei minerali dei succhi della terra che congelano in minerali, la quarta e la quinta di gemme e metalli. Conclude l'opera un completo indice.Secondo Partington il termine "mineralogia" ha qui, un uso moderno della parola, i significati sono però intimamente filosofici e appartengono in maniera trasversale a molte discipline, dalla religione, (in quanto il Cesi affermava che lo studio della mineralogia aiutava a capire la Bibbia, argomento ardito) a medicina, pittura, agricoltura, alchimia. Ad esempio, nel descrivere la generazione dei minerali, segue da vicino Aristotele, ma cita anche Teofrasto, Avicenna, Alberto Magno, Agricola, Gregorius Reisch, Plinio, Boodt, Francis Rueus, Marbodio, la Bibbia, e numerosi Padri della Chiesa. Continuando nella sua dissertazione, l'autore ritiene che il Sole, la Luna e le stelle influenzino il mondo sotterraneo dei minerali e dei metalli, e che le gemme abbia … [Click Below for Full Description]

ORSINI Cesare
8 volumi di piccolo formato, in-16 o in-12. Cesare Orsini, nato a Ponzano Magra (La Spezia) nella seconda metà del XVI sec. e morto dopo il 1638, fu al servizio di vari personaggi a Venezia e Brescia, ed a Roma fu segretario del Card. Bevilacqua. Con lo pseudonimo di Magister Stopinus pubblicò nel 1636 a Venezia i "Capriccia Macaronica" che ebbero notevole successo e furono ristampati più volte. "Sono gustose e vivaci satire, interessante documento di costume, giudicate da critici e bibliografi come una delle opere più vive della poesia barocca ed il miglior esempio, dopo il Folengo, del genere maccheronico" (Cat. Vinciana, n. 3164). Oltre alle otto "macaroneae" comprende un'egloga, numerosi epigrammi ed un "Elegiarum liber", sempre in stile maccheronico. GRAESSE VI, 503.

Jodocus Hondius & Joannes Janssonius edit.
Affascinante carta dei territori della Florida, Carolina e Virginia. Il titolo è iscritto in maestoso e decorativo cartiglio arricchito dalle raffigurazioni delle diverse tipologie di insediamenti: sulla sinistra "Civitatum Floridae Imitatio" mentre sulla destra "Civitatum Virginiae Forma". Lungo il lato sinistro si trova anche la rappresentazione di "REgis et rginae habitus in Florida provincia" con la puntualizzazione che le persone della plebe non sono molto differenti. Altri elementi quali: la rosa dei venti, la raffigurazione dell'imbarcazione tipica degli abitanti della Florida e mostri marini contribuiscono ad aumentare l'aspeto decorativo ed allo stesso tempo veicolano curiose informazioni. Al verso testo latino e l'indicazione "Ssss", che in accordo con Koemann, permette di datare la carta al 1636 o 1638. Coloritura coeva. Qualche segno del tempo, ma nel complesso buon esemplare.
