        De Quadrupedib'. Digitatis Viviparis Libri tres, et de Quadrupedib' Digitatis Oviparis Libri duo.

      - Bononiae, apud Nicolaum Tebaldinum, 1637. Folio (345 x 235 mm). pp. (6), 718, (16), with engraved title and 130 woodcuts in the text of which some full-page. Later half calf, spine in 5 compartments with red and blue gilt lettered label (head of spine a bit chafed). First edition. Aldrovandi's complete natural history works consist of 11 works, he spent 45 years amassing the material. The volumes on birds and insects were completed by himself, the others by his pupils. The present work is on ‘fingered’ quadrupeds, such as dogs and cats, rodents, bears, etc. The second part 'De Quadrupedib' Digitatis Oviparis Libri duo' covers reptiles (lizards, crocodiles, turtles), and amphibians."Although Aldrovandi is not identified with any revolutionary discoveries, his work as a teacher and as the author of volumes that constitute an irreplacable cultural patrimony earns him a place among the fathers of modern science. Perhaps most importantly he was among the first to attempt to free the natural sciences from the stifling influence of the authority of textbooks, for which he substituted, as far as possible, direct study and observation of the animal, vegetable, and mineral worlds" (D.S.B. I, pp. 108-110). Title page with small paper repair at the outer upper corner and as usual a few leaves a bit browned.Nissen ZBI, 77; Wood p. 185. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Interpreter: Or Booke Containing the Signification of Words...

      1637. The Best English Law Dictionary of the Seventeenth and Early Eighteenth Centuries Cowell, John [1554-1611]. The Interpreter: Or Booke Containing the Signification of Words: Wherein is Set Foorth the True Meaning of All, Or the Most Part of Such Words and Termes, as are Mentioned in the Lawe Writers, or Statutes of This Victorious and Renowned Kingdome, Requiring Any Exposition or Interpretation. A Worke not Onely Profitable, but Necessary for Such as Desire Throughly to be Instructed in the Knowledge of Our Lawes, Statutes, and Other Antiquities. London: Printed for William Sheares, 1637. [584] pp. Text in parallel columns within black-ruled borders. Quarto (7-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Contemporary calf, blind rules to boards, rebacked in period style with raised bands and lettering piece, hinges mended, edges rouged. Moderate rubbing to extremities, a few negligible scuffs to boards, corners bumped. Woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces and decorated initials. Moderate toning to text, light staining to a few leaves. Early owner annotation to head of title page in small hand, another annotation in miniscule later hand to foot of another leaf, interior otherwise clean. A handsome copy. * Second edition, one of two issues from 1637. The Interpreter is considered to be the best law dictionary until Jacob's and it is still used by scholars of early English legal documents. Its publication provoked controversy. At a time when Parliament and crown were vying for power, the Commons disapproved of Cowell's royalist sympathies, which were evident in such definitions as "King," "Parliament," "Prerogative," "Recoveries" and "Subsidies." When a joint committee of Lords and Councilors reviewed the work, the ensuing controversy nearly halted the affairs of government. What is more, it contained a quotation that criticized Littleton's scholarship, which angered Sir Edward Coke. James I intervened in fear that his own fiscal interests would not be approved by Parliament. Encouraged by Coke, the king imprisoned Cowell, suppressed the book and ordered all copies burned by a public hangman on March 10, 1610. The present edition contains several changes that were made posthumously to placate the dictionary's enemies. Despite its stormy reception, The Interpreter remains a useful gloss to Coke's Littleton and other early

      Edinburgh: Printed by Robert Young, 1637. Small folio (signed in 8s). 19th century blindstamped calf, beveled edges, decorated in blind. Printed in black letter, with decorated initials, title within typographic frame, in red and black. Edges rubbed but binding sound; significantly tanned and with marginal soiling and occasional stains and wandering marginal tidemarks, a few ink annotations, small repair at lower edge of first title on verso, early retained binder's preliminary blank heavily smudged, with early annotations, bookplate on pastedown, and long 19th century provenance statement and bibliographic note on binder's blank closely written in ink. Obviously a heavily used copy, but collated essentially complete (see below) and sound. First edition of the first Scottish Book of Common Prayer. This controversial edition of the Liturgy was overseen by Charles I and Archbishop Laud for use by the people of Scotland. The text was drafted by John Maxwell and James Wedderburn. However, upon its first reading in churches in Scotland, the opposition was so strong that it was withdrawn from use shortly thereafter. The text eventually was influential in the compilation of the English revision of 1661- 2, and served as a model for the American BCP of 1789 and its successors. As usual, leaves R7-8, which were suppressed, are not present, and leaf 2h3 is in the second of four settings noted by ESTC, Accompanied by the 1636 Psalter, which although equipped with a separate full title, is its normal companion. Also bound with a quite imperfect copy of THE PSALMS OF KING DAVID: TRANSLATED BY KING JAMES. London: Printed by Thomas Harper. 1636, which is not included in the collation above. GRIFFITHS 1637:9.

        The Interpreter: Or Booke, Containing the Signification of Words. Wherein is Set for the True Meeting of all, or the Most part of Such Words and Termes, as are Mentioned in the Law Writers

      London: William Sheares. 1637. H Hard Cover. Fair. Second edition, 1637. First published 1610. Early law dictionary in what appears to be the original or contemporary binding. Full brown leather with blind ruled lines to covers and spine, but with title, author and some subtle decorations added in neat handwriting with a gilt pen probably in the 20th century, and what appears to be 18th or early 19th century decorative gilt borders around the far outer edges of the front cover. Unpaginated, 7.75" tall, about 1.75" thick. Pastedown endpapers present but separated with fragments of older printed text in English visible between covers. Some external wear and chipping, binding sound with one gathering slightly loosened, very minor insect damage to the far top inner margins throughout most of the book, some old initials on what is now the exposed verso of the front pastedown along with a large rubber stamped "BOND" in purple, and a more modern name and address stamp in blue on the verso of the title page - which unfortunately bleeds through to the top of the title page, just above and to the right of the title, page age-toned but generally very clean with additional darkening and dampstaining to the title page and preface. The author's name, Cowell, is neatly handwritten on the upper outside corner of the text block.

Haak executed this work at the request of the Westminster Assembly of Divines. 2 volumes bound in 2. First edition. Only 6 copies known in Britain and 6 in America, a notably low tally for an English Bible.

        Terza scena Giardino di Venere

      Firenze 1637 - Acquaforte, 1637, firmata in lastra in basso a sinistra. Da un soggetto di Alfonso Parigi. Dalla serie "Le nozze degli Dei". Buona prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame o con sottilissimi margini, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione.Firenze 1610 - 1664Stefano della Bella fu uno degli incisori più interessanti e originali nella Firenze del XVII secolo e può considerarsi l'unico geniale continuatore dell'opera del Callot. La sua educazione artistica ebbe inizio a Firenze nella bottega degli orafi Gasparo Mola e Orazio Vanni ad una precisione di segno tipica dell'orafo resterà caratteristica del suo stile. Studiò poi presso Giovanni Battista Vanni e forse anche presso il Cantagallina e Cesare Dandini, ma ben presto, come afferma il Baldinucci "posta da parte la pittura, si diede tutto all'intaglio". Il suo vero maestro può considerarsi Jacques Callot, l'incisore francese che soggiornò a lungo a Firenze lasciando una forte impronta nel panorama artistico della città.Lorenzo de' Medici prese a proteggere il piccolo Stefanino,e dal 1633 al 1636 lo invitò a Roma, dove l'artista studiò realizzando numerose copie dall'antico,da Polidoro e dove incise la sua prima opera importante: l'Entrata a Roma dell'ambasciatore di Polonia Giorgio Ossolinsky nel 1633.Nel 1639 Stefano partì per Parigi, con una pensione di Lorenzo dè Medici, e dove si trattenne fino al 1650 circa.Questi sono gli anni più importanti della sua carriera durante i quali lavorò insieme ad Israel Sil vestre, con gli editori Langlois, Ciartres e Pierre Mariette.Intorno al 1647, durante un viaggio in Olanda, dove eseguì le acqueforti con le vedute del porto di Amsterdam, incontrò Rembrandt e da quella data notiamo una eco profonda dell'arte dell'olandese nella grafica del Della Bella.

        The phoenix of these late times: or the life of Mr. Henry Welby, Esq: who lived at his house in Grub-street forty foure yeares, and in that space, was never seene by any, aged 84.

      N. Okes for Richard Clotterbuck, London 1637 - FIRST EDITION. 4to. 25 unnumbered ll. . *Š A-E4 F3. (without last blank). Woodcut initials, typographical and woodcut head and tail pieces, engraved portrait frontispiece of Welby, trimmed and mounted (probably from the 1794 reprint). Title and verso of last dusty, light age browning, upper margin cut close, running headline just trimmed in places, the odd marginal mark. A good copy in excellent C19 blue morocco gilt by Ramage, covers triple gilt ruled to a panel design gilt fleurons to outer corners, spine richly gilt in compartments, inner dentelles gilt, all edges gilt. A rare and most interesting account of the life of the famous recluse Henry Welby of Grub Street, with epistles and epitaphs by Shakerly Marmion, John Taylor the water poet, Thomas Brewer, and Thomas Heywood himself, who was most probably was the author of the main text. Heywood (?1574-1650), actor and dramatist, one of Shakespeare’s colleagues in the Admiral’s men in the 1590’s, composed principally for the stage but wrote also a small number of works unconnected with the theatre. In this work he relates the life of Welby, a wealthy land owner, who became a recluse living in his house in Grub Street for forty four years with no contact with the outer world except through his elderly maidservant. He retreated to this solitude after a quarrel, in which a younger brother traumatised him by trying to murder him (attempting to shoot him with a double-charged pistol, which only 'flashed in the pan'). Up to this point, Welby had been a student, had travelled abroad, married, had a daughter, and seen the daughter married. As a result of this incident he took ‘a very faire house in the lower end of Grub Street, near unto Cripplegate,’ and passed the rest of his life in absolute seclusion, never leaving his apartments. Heywood gives detailed description of his abstinence, his diet, his daily routine; he asserts that at Christmas and Easter, all the food for a proper feast would be served into Mr Welby’s outermost room, where he dined, which he would then carve, and send out to be distributed to his neighbours, without his eating any of it himself. Heywood also states that Welby was a scholar and a linguist, and always bought the best books available, English and foreign. He particularly admires him for his piety and charity seeing in him him something of a biblical figure living in London. "what retirement could be more? In my opinion it far surpasseth all the Vestals and Votaries, all the Ancresses and Authors that have beene memorized in any Hystorie." Despite the extraordinary nature of the events described the work nonetheless gives an interesting insight into ordinary lives in Stuart London. Shakerly Marmion spoke of Heywood as writing "all history, all actions, Councils, Decrees, man, manners, State and factions, Playes, Epicediums, Odes and Lyricks, Translations, Epitaphs, and Panegyricks" (DNB). He was indeed a translator, primarily of Lucian, and Kirkman (his bookseller) reports of him that "many of his plays were composed in the tavern, on the backside of tavern-bills" (ibid.).

      Amsterdam, 1637. Small quarto. 20th-century brown morocco, gilt, a.e.g., gilt innder dentelles, by Riviere & Son. Minor toning and soiling to text. Near fine. In a brown half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt, leather labels. One of the classic accounts of the early settlement of New England, looked to increasingly by modern historians and anthropologists for its unbiased and detailed accounts of Indian life in early New England, descriptions of flora and fauna, and internecine struggles among the colonists. Morton first came to New England in 1622 and lived there until his expulsion by the Plymouth colonists a decade later. He was particularly sympathetic to the way of life of the Indians and provides extensive descriptions of customs, hunting, planting, artifacts, and lifestyles in the first section of the work. The second part provides a remarkable account of the landscape and ecology of New England (William Cronon draws heavily on Morton in his pioneering CHANGES IN THE LAND). The final section of Morton's account is the most famous historically, since it gives an account of his long and often amusing feud with the Plymouth Colony and a description of his separate settlement at Merry-Mount, where his close association with the Indians of the area and open defiance of the laws of the Plymouth settlers provided one of the more colorful episodes in early colonial New England. Morton's work is very scarce on the market, only three copies having appeared at auction in the last thirty years. A book of the greatest importance, perhaps the best single account of early New England.

        Curiositez inouyes, sur la sculpture talismanique des persans. Horoscope des patriarches. Et lecture des estoilles.

      Np. Nr., Paris 1637 - CONTROVERSIAL TREATISE ON ORIENTAL ASTROLOGY 8vo. pp. (xvi), 315, (i) and two folding plates. a8, A-T8 V6. Roman letter, some Italic and Hebrew. Woodcut initials, typographical headpieces, grotesque woodcut tail-pieces, small woodcut diagrams and tables in text, two large folding woodcut star charts inserted at end, autograph of "Carl Aurivillius, Upsala, 1762", his shelf mark above. Light age yellowing, marginal wine stain to lower outer corner of quires D and E, small tear restored in S2. A very good, well margined copy, lower margins untrimmed in contemporary limp vellum, old stain to edge of lower cover. A rare clandestine edition of an important and influential work on Oriental Talismans, Hebrew, Egyptian and Arabic Astrology, the Kabbalah and star reading, including two beautiful folding celestial charts depicting the constellations. One of the theories argues that the stars are arranged in the form of Hebrew letters, which can be read by those with the right knowledge. Gaffarel was a follower of Pico de Mirandola and one of the chief exponents of Christian Kabbalism, and as such came into conflict with Sorbonne and particularly with Mersenne, who unambiguously rejected his work as impious and published ‘De Gaffarello Judicio’ attacking him, though he recognized Gaffarel’s profound knowledge of Kabbalah. "Jaques Gaffarel was born in Provence in 1601, educated at the Universities of Valence and Paris where he received the degree of Doctor of canon law, became a priest and chaplain of Richelieu, and had a wide knowledge of Oriental languages: Hebrew, Arabic, Syrian and Persian. (This) is Gaffarel's main work, the first appearance was in Paris 1629 and then it was repeatedly reprinted into the early 18th century and translated into Latin and English. It is divided into three parts, of which the first defends orientals, especially Hebrews, from Christian charges, and the third deals with ancient Hebrew and oriental astrology. The second part, on the talismanic sculpture of the Persians, especially interests us for its close connection with natural magic. He further contends that the astrology of the ancients was neither idolatry nor the cause of idolatry, and accuses Scaliger and others of having misrepresented the astrology of the ancient Hebrews, Egyptians and Arabs. On August 1, 1629, the faculty of theology at Paris condemned Gaffarel's book as "entirely to be disapproved", and called its doctrine false, erroneous, scandalous, opposed to Holy Writ, contumelious towards the Church Fathers, and superstitious." Thorndike. Gaffarel duly signed a retraction, but couched it in vague and general terms, stating that he was merely recording the opinions collected from the writings of the Arabs and Hebrews. The book enjoyed great success, Descartes read it with interest and Pierre Gassendi defended it. Richelieu made Gaffarel his librarian and he travelled extensively, first to Italy, where he met Campanella, then to Greece and Asia in search of rare books. A most appropriate provenance: Carl Aurivillius was professor of oriental languages at Uppsala, Swedish linguist, translator and orientalist (1717-1786). He wrote several dissertations of profound scholarship on subjects connected with biblical and oriental literature, of which thirty were published by J. D. Michaelis. Aurivillius studied at Uppsala, then at Paris, Leiden and Halle, where he became friends with great contemporary Orientalists, such as Michaelis, Fourmont and Albert Schulten. He was part of Gustav III's Biblical Commission, and helped translate almost the entire Old Testament into Swedish. A very good copy of this work, with the two folding plates in excellent condition BM STC Fr. C17 p. 214, no. 59. Cantamessa, vol, I, 1671, Thorndike, History of Magic & Experimental Science vol.

With the engraved bookplate of Henry Cabot Lodge on front paste-down and also the small oval bookplate of Derby School on verso of front endpaper.This first edition not found in any of the standard reference works and only one copy located in libraries worldwide at the Institut Catholique de Paris. No copies have appeared at auction for the past forty years. A second edition was published in 1639.Augustine of Hippo, Latin: Aurelius Augustinus Hipponensis; 13 November 354 ?- 28 August 430), also known as Saint Augustine or Saint Austin, was an early Christian theologian and philosopher whose writings influenced the development of Western Christianity and Western philosophy. He was the bishop of Hippo Regius (modern-day Annaba, Algeria), located in Numidia (Roman province of Africa). He is viewed as one of the most important Church Fathers in Western Christianity for his writings in the Patristic Era. Among his most important works are City of God and Confessions.Confessions (Latin: Confessiones) is the name of an autobiographical work, consisting of 13 books, by St. Augustine of Hippo, written in Latin between 397 and 400 AD. Modern English translations of it are sometimes published under the title The Confessions of St. Augustine in order to distinguish the book from other books with similar titles. Its original title was Confessions in Thirteen Books, and it was composed to be read out loud with each book being a complete unit.The work outlines Augustine's sinful youth and his conversion to Christianity. It is widely seen as the first Western autobiography nebridiusever written, and was an influential model for Christian writers throughout the following 1,000 years, through the Middle Ages. It is not a complete autobiography, as it was written in his early 40s, and he lived long afterwards, producing another important work City of God. It does, nonetheless, provide an unbroken record of his development of thought and is the most complete record of any single person from the 4th and 5th centuries. It is a significant theological work, featuring spiritual meditations and insights.In the work Saint Augustine writes about how much he regrets having led a sinful and immoral life. He discusses his regrets for following the Manichaean religion and believing in astrology. He writes about Saint Nebridius's role in helping to persuade him that astrology was not only incorrect but evil, and Saint Ambrose's role in his conversion to Christianity. The first nine books are autobiographical and the last four are commentary. He shows intense sorrow for his sexual sins, and writes on the importance of sexual morality. The books were written as prayers to God, thus the title, based on the Psalms of David; and it begins with "For Thou hast made us for Thyself and our hearts are restless till they rest in Thee." The work is thought to be divisible into books which symbolize various aspects of the Trinity and trinitarian belief.Henry Cabot Lodge (1850-1924) was an American Republican Senator and historian from Massachusetts. A PhD in history from Harvard, he was a long-time friend and confidant of Theodore Roosevelt. Lodge had the role (but not the official title) of the first Senate Majority Leader. He is best known for his positions on foreign policy, especially his battle with President Woodrow Wilson in 1919 over the Treaty of Versailles. Lodge demanded Congressional control of declarations of war; Wilson refused and blocked Lodge's move to ratify the treaty with reservations. As a result, the United States never joined the League of Nations.Sommervogel, 1891 (citing only the 'Seconde édition' of 1639)La Bédoyère.

Passagen wurde allerdings von Kaiser Ferdinand II unterdrückt. Nach dem Übertritt d. Verf. zum Katholizismus wurde eine zensierte Ausgabe mit neuer Adresse (Jena) möglich. Die einzelnen Tle. handeln von den Königen über das Land, von den Fürsten, von den geistl. Landes- u. Justizsachen sowie von den einzelnen Städten Schlesiens. Der Kupfertitel im uneren Teil mit einer Ansicht von Breslau. Leicht gebräunt, kaum fleckig, im unt. Drittel kl. Wurmgänge mit minimalem Buchstabenverlust. Der schöne und reich verzierte Einband hat als Mittelstück ein gepr. Emblem und hinten das sächsische Wappen. Schickfuß: Jakob (Bonaventura) S., bekannt als Schulmann und Historiker, war der älteste Sohn eines kaiserlichen Zolleinnehmers Bonaventura S. in Schwiebus. Geboren daselbst am 22. Januar 1574, widmete er sich seit 1593 in Frankfurt a. O. philosophischen und juristischen Studien und begleitete alsdann polnische Edelleute auf die Universitäten zu Basel, Straßburg und Jena. 1597 nach Frankfurt zurückgekehrt, bekleidete er die Stelle eines Notars an der Universität, hielt dabei juristische Vorlesungen und that sich durch häufige Disputationen, von denen mehrere gedruckt wurden, hervor. So ward er, als in Brieg der Rector Melchior Tilesius am 5. April 1608 gestorben war, auf Empfehlung der Universität zu dessen Nachfolger berufen und brachte diese, 1569 von Herzog Georg II. als Vorposten des deutschen Protestantismus gegen den Osten gegründete Schule zu hoher Blüthe. Die Zahl der nicht bloß aus deutschen Landen, sondern auch aus Ungarn, Siebenbürgen, Polen und Mähren dorthin zusammenströmenden Schüler stieg unter ihm zeitweise bis auf 500, welche in fünf Hauptclassen unterrichtet, durch häufige Uebungen in lateinischen und griechischen Reden und poetischen Versuchen, sowie Aufführungen antiker Dramen, eine große Gewandtheit im Gebrauch der classischen Sprache erlangten. Einer dieser Zöglinge, Joh. Heermann aus Raudten in Schlesien, ward schon bei seinem Abgange von der Schule, 1608, mit dem Dichterlorbeer geschmückt und hat später seinen Namen besonders als Verfasser geistlicher (deutscher) Lieder auf die Nachwelt gebracht. Trotz dieser Erfolge legte S. 1613 das Rectorat nieder, als sich die Theilung der herzoglichen Lande zwischen den beiden, nunmehr der Vormundschaft entwachsenen Söhnen des Herzogs Joachim Friedrich († 1602) vollzog, und trat, nachdem er am 22. October 1612 zum D. U. J. in Frankfurt promovirt worden, als Rath in die Dienste des älteren jener Brüder, des Herzogs Johann Christian von Brieg. Dabei verwandte er seine Mußestunden auf die Abfassung einer „Schlesischen Chronica", welcher er die Annales gentis Silesiae des Curäus (Wittenberg 1571, übersetzt und fortgeführt durch Heinr. Rätel, 1585, 1587, 1601) zu Grunde legte und die er mit dem Jahre 1619 „da sich dero Oesterreichisch-Wienerischen Linien Regierung gantz endet", abschloß. Die Anordnung darin ist ähnlich, wie bei Curäus (s. A. D. B. IV, [176] 644), so daß das erste Buch von den Königen über das Land bis 1619, das zweite von den einzelnen Fürsten, das dritte von den geistlichen, Landes- und Justizsachen, das vierte von den einzelnen Städten Schlesiens handelt. An einigen Stellen (IV, 75 f., 161) gibt er auch Nachrichten über seine Person und seine Vorfahren. Im Druck erschien die Chronik erst 1625 (Jena, o. J., Fol.), denn [Attributes: Hard Cover]

In the service of Arundel, the great collector of paintings and classical art and patron of the arts, Junius was encourage to compile a large compilation of art quotations from the ancient. This he combined in "De pictura veterum libri tres" with a philological treatise on the classical notions of art, an art history and a defence of the pictorial arts. The book was published with a dedication to Charles I of England, and it became a powerful scholarly book, praised by both Peter Paul Rubens and Anthony Van Dyck.

        Ruhe auf der Flucht nach Ägypten.

      um 1637 - Radierung auf Bütten. Um 1637. 8,3:13,1 cm. Literatur: Bartsch 8; Bellini 7.- Weicher, sehr guter Druck mit einigen Kratzern in der Platte, mit umlaufenden Rändchen. Rovenienz: Sammlung E. von Bayer, nicht bei Lugt. Cantarinis Ausbildung begann in Verona bei G.G. Pandolfi (1567-1636). Nach einem kurzen Aufenthalt in Venedig ging er gemeinsam mit Cl. Ridolfi (1560-1644) nach Pesaro, wo er dessen Schüler wurde. Abschließend seit 1635 war er Schüler von G. Reni (1575-1642) in Bologna. Das Studium bei Reni wurde allerdings wohl durch einen Streit zwischen Lehrer und Schüler – Cantarini schien einen anmaßenden Charakter gehabt zu haben – etwa um 1637 jäh beendet. Um 1640/1641 reiste er nach Rom, wo er neben den Meistern der Antike insbesondere die Arbeiten von Raffael (1483-1520) studierte. Nach dem Tod seines Lehrers Reni im Jahr 1642 ließ Cantarini sich schließlich in Bologna nieder, wo er erfolgreich eine eigene Werkstatt betrieb, ging dann aber an den Hof zu Mantua, wohin ihn der Herzog Carlo I. Gonzaga berufen hatte. Jedoch auch hier beendete Cantarinis Unbeherrschtheit und wohl auch Eitelkeit das Arbeitsverhältnis nach kurzer Zeit, weshalb er nach Verona zog. Hier verstarb er im Alter von nur 36 Jahren. Cantarini schuf zahlreiche Gemälde und Zeichnungen meist biblischer Themen, aber er widmete sich auch der Porträtmalerei.

In his Studies in Jewish Dream Interpretation, 1994, page 39, chapter 3, Monford Harris writes: "The Interpretation of Dreams by a sixteenth century Rabbi. Solomon Almoli¿s Interpretation of Dreams, noted by Freud in his Interpration of Dreams, is without doubt the most important post-biblical, post-talmudic Jewish work of dream interpretation." Almoli was born in Salonika no later than 1486 and by 1516 he was residing in Constantinople. He was an ordained rabbi and served as a Beit Din (Jewish Religious Court) judge, and earnied his living as a physician. He wrote works dealing with Hebrew grammar, and so universal were his interests that he planned an encyclopedia dealing with all of human knowledge, although he succeeded in composing and publishing only the proposal and outline. Rabbi Shlomo Elmoli was also a renowned Talmud Scholar in Constantinople and served as the Turkish Sultan's doctor. Almoli's Interpretation of Dreams was printed in Amsterdam by Menashe ben Israel, and as the title page states, it was printed in accordance with the request of Rabbi Yitchak Monteleto, who was the advisor and doctor of the French king, Louis XIII, and his mother the Queens of France. Initially Almoli¿s Interpretation of Dreams circulated in manuscript, but eventually it saw print. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

As usual, leaves R7-8, which were suppressed, are not present; leaf 2h3 is in second ('blotted') of four settings noted by ESTC. There is no catchword on kk6v, and in this copy A4v, line 1, reads 'Do-'; C1r, last line, reads 'ye may'; D1r, line 2, ends 'Jerusalem'; and E3v, line 5, reads 'exam-' as per STC. The general title to THE PSALTER... is the state without the word 'Pointed.' This controversial edition of the Liturgy was overseen by Charles I and Archbishop Laud for use by the people of Scotland. The text was drafted by John Maxwell and James Wedderburn However, upon its first reading in churches in Scotland, the opposition was so strong that it was withdrawn from use shortly thereafter. The text eventually was influential in the compilation of the English revision of 1661-2, and served as a model for the American BCP of 1789 and its successors.

        The North Pole and the adjacent Arctic lands Newly and Accurately Described. "Novi et Acurata Poli Arctici et terrarum Circum Iacentium Descriptio

      World Celestial & Curiosities: Amsterdam Schenk, Petri & Valk Gerardi c1700. Copper engraved map of the Arctic, the North Pole and adjacent lands from Schenk And Valk's " Atlas Contractus." Original full wash colour; verso blank The map from the plate by Janssonius was originally published in 1637, eventually replaced Hondius' map of the North Pole and became the prototype for many later maps including those of Blaeu. Rhumb lines radiate from the North Pole and several compass roses and ships embellish the chart. A large title cartouche, with two figures and numerous wind heads, conveniently hides the northwest coast of America. Small cartouche depicting men, a polar bear and foxes at lower right with the imprint of Schenk and Valk. Fifth state of the plate with Nova Zembla connected to the mainland with a land bridge and the completed coastline of Spitzbergen . Good impression with bright colour; generally clean; a few spots to blank margins; short centre old split at lower margin [approx 20mm backed with archival tape]. The maps of Schenk and Valk are famous for their full wash colour , however often the pigments, particularly in the greens deteriorated leading to browning and eventually could cause the paper to crack, for this reason it is unusual to see such bright original colour. SCHENCK, Pieter 1660-1718/9 Dutch mapmaker and publisher. Born in Elberfeld, Germany in 1660. Moved to Amsterdam in 1683 where he became a pupil of Gerard Valck, later in 1687 he married Agatha Valck, sister of his associate., thus uniting two great families. In 1686 he is noted in a privilege granted to Petrus Schenck and Gerardus Valck for the printing & sale of their prints. The Valck and Schenk families where active as print sellers, publishers and printers of maps, atlases and architectural drawings as well globes. They accquired plates from the stock of Johannes Janssonius and also of Visscher reissuing several maps of Janssonius' "Atlas Novus "from 1683-94 and published an Atlas titled" Nova totius Geographia" in 1702. The best known of the joint Pieter Schenk & Gerard Valck publications were the second edition of Andreas Cellarius's " Celestial Atlas Harmonia Macrocosmica'" 1708 and an edition of Jan Jansson's "Novus Atlas" entitled the "Atlas Anglois" published in London by David Mortier in 1715. Pieter Schenck the Elder's earliest cartographic productions were a number of maps after Nicolas Sanson published in a composite Atlas, "Atlas Contractus or Atlas Minor" c.1696. He also published a further composite Atlas, "Atlantis sylloge compendiosa," c.1702. Other works included his famous Atlas of one hundred town views," Hecatompolis" [1702];" Le Theatre de Mars "[1706]; and the "Schouwburg van der Oorlog" [1706]. Koeman III,page 115 Sche 2/ Val1.

        Bellissima incisione originale seicentesca raffigurante l'albero genealogico della famiglia Inghirami di Volterra, impressa da Giovanni Battista Falcini.

      Bella, nitida incisione originale in formato cm.76x48,3, impressa da Giovanni Battista Falcini, e tratta dall'opera "Ethruscarum antiquitatum fragmenta: quibus urbis Romae aliarumque gentium primordia, mores, & res gestae indicantur a Curtio Inghiramio reperta Scornelli prope? Vulterram" di Curzio Inghirami (1614 - 1655), edita a Francoforte nel 1637. Vi viene raffigurato l'albero genealogico della Famiglia Inghirami, con notevole dovizia di dettagli. In basso bella veduta di Pomarance, con sullo sfondo la Rocca di Volterra. Due stemmi nobiliari ai margini esterni. Esemplare privo di margini, con alcuni restauri cartacei. In basso a sinistra, in cartiglio ornamentale, la dizione "Inghiramia familia ortum habuit e Lavemburgo ab Ennone Bilingio, cui. fil. Hermannus ab Othone Imp. Dux in Saxonia fuit constitutus, Krantius hist. est; Engera mus. autem alter Ennonis filius Inghiramiam prosapiam in Ethruria intervit ut ex instrum. apparet. Declaratio litterarum indicantium loca, ex quibus praesens arbor desumpta est". Segue l'indicazione delle sigle delle fonti citate nella carta: "A.V. Archivia Vulterrana. A.E. Archivium Episcopale. A.I. Archivium Abb. S.Iusti. I.P. Instrumenta privatorum. I.I. Instrum. quae apud nos existunt. Cos. Ex Consulibus Vulterr. Urbis. Ant. Ex Antianis. Pr. Ex Prioribus Re. Reformatoribus Status Vulterrae, quae dignitates nobilioribus tantum conceduntur". Così Giovanni Battista Picotti descrive la Famiglia Inghirami nella Edizione 1933 della "Enciclopedia Treccani": "Famiglia venuta, si disse, dalla Sassonia, appare in Volterra, ed ebbe rami in Roma e in Prato. Al ramo pratese appartenne Gemignano (1370 - 1460), uditore di Rota, che lasciò nella sua propositura di Prato larga traccia di pietà e di mecenatismo e scrisse notevoli Ricordanze (Arch. stor. ital., s. 5, I, 1888, p. 20 segg.). Da Volterra venne a Roma Tomaso, detto Fedra (1470 - 1516), canonico lateranense e vaticano, bibliotecario, segretario del Sacro Collegio; autore di discorsi funebri, di lavori filologici, di carmi, fu detto il Cicerone dell'età sua; è più noto, ora, per il suo ritratto raffaellesco. Iacopo, del ramo volterrano (1565 - 1623), fu cavaliere e (1603) ammiraglio dell'ordine di S. Stefano. Curzio (1614 - 1655), archeologo e storico, pubblicò nel 1637 i famosi "Scripti", supposti frammenti di antichità etrusche, e li difese in un Discorso ricco di erudizione (1645). Francesco (1772 - 1846) fu pure archeologo, storico e artista; Giovanni (1779 - 1851) fu direttore dell'Osservatorio Ximeniano di Firenze"
