      1637. [Crompton, Richard]. L'Authoritie et Iurisdiction [Jurisdiction] des Courts de la Maiestie de la Roygne: Nouelment Collect & Compose, per R. Crompton del Milieu Temple Esquire, Apprentice del Ley. Si Seuris Index, Mitisis Corde Memento, Dicito, quae Possunt Dicta Decere Senem. London: Printed by the Assignes of Iohn More Esquire, 1637. [iv], 232 ff. Quarto (7" x 5"). Later three-quarter calf over cloth, raised bands, gilt spine. Worn, front hinge cracked but secure, title page signed "T.E. Chitty." Numerous annotations and brief notes in early court hand, light foxing to a few leaves. Ex-library. Institution name gilt-stamped to front cover and spine, corresponding monogram to rear cover, bookplate to front free endpaper, a few small ownership stamps to title page and elsewhere. * Second and final edition, first published in 1594. Crompton was a bencher of the Middle Temple during the reign of Henry VIII and the author of several notable contributions to the legal literature. First published in 1594, L'Authoritie et Iurisdiction is considered to be his principal work. It is essentially a digest of the Year Books and other cases applicable to the subject. On a broader scale, it offers legal justification for the creation of a rigidly hierarchical "natural" society governed by a powerful monarch. This desire, articulated by Bodin among others, was common to several conservatives in England and Europe during the Late Renaissance. This copy probably belonged to Thomas Chitty [1802-1878], the eminent lawyer, teacher and legal reformer. Sweet & Maxwell, A Legal Bibliography of the British Commonwealth 1:259..

        Pergamentmanuskript mit eigenh. U.

      Schloß Kaiserebersdorf bei Wien, 25. VIII. 1637.. Lateinische Handschrift, Tinte auf Pergament. 156 unnumerierte SS., 27 Zeilen. Pergamentband der Zeit auf 4 durchzogenen Bünden mit schöner goldgepr. Deckelbordüre (Rankenwerk mit Knospen und Blüten; oxydiert), Eckfleurons, Rückenvergoldung und zwei verschiedenen goldgepr. Wappensupralibros. Dreiseitiger Goldschnitt. Innenrand durchgehend gelocht; die Kordel mit dem Siegel nicht mehr vorhanden. Reste von Bindebändern. Folio.. Sammlung von habsburgischen Urkundenabschriften zum Haus Gonzaga und zum Mantuanischen Erbfolgekrieg, zusammengestellt von der kaiserlichen Hofkanzlei und eigenhändig unterzeichnet von Kaiser Ferdinand III. Die Dokumentsammlung, welche Textzeugnisse von Friedrich III., Maximilian I., Karl V., Maximilian II., Rudolf II., Matthias, Ferdinand II. etc. vereint, wurde höchstwahrscheinlich angelegt für den Herzog Ferrante III. Gonzaga, Graf von Guastalla (1618-78) zur Dokumentation und Sicherung seiner im Interesse des Kaiserhauses liegenden Ansprüche auf das Herzogtum Mantua, welches der Mantuanische Erbfolgekrieg wenige Jahre zuvor der französischen Einflußsphäre zugeschlagen hatte. - Das seit dem 12. Jahrhundert nachweisbare Haus Gonzaga regierte Mantua seit 1328; 1530 nahm Federico II. Gonzaga den Titel eines Herzogs von Mantua an. Als sich die Familie Mitte des 16. Jhs. die Grafschaften Montferrat und Guastalla einverleibte, befand sie sich auf dem Höhepunkt ihrer politischen und kulturellen Bedeutung: Durch die beiden territorial nicht angrenzenden Gebiete Mantua und Montferrat verliefen wichtige Verkehrs- und Handelswege. Das Herzogtum Mantua konnte ausschließlich durch die männliche Linie vererbt werden. Als Francesco IV. Gonzaga 1612 ohne männlichen Erben starb, folgten ihm seine Brüder Ferdinando und Vincenzo, die als Kardinäle allerdings kinderlos waren. Mit dem Tod von Vincenzo II. Gonzaga im Jahr 1627 erlosch der Hauptstamm der Familie, was den Mantuanischen Erbfolgekrieg auslöste: Kaiser Ferdinand II., Gatte von Eleonora Gonzaga, Vincenzos Schwester, versuchte Mantua als erledigtes Reichslehen einzuziehen, um es an die (auf spanischer Seite stehende) Seitenlinie Gonzaga-Guastalla zu vergeben. Dagegen standen die Interessen der älteren Linie des von Frankreich unterstützten Hauses Gonzaga von Nevers und Rethel. Die Kriegshandlungen endeten erst, als Schweden 1630 in den Dreißigjährigen Krieg eingriff und Kaiser Ferdinand seine Truppen rasch abziehen musste: Der Herzog von Nevers und Rethel wurde Herr über die verwüsteten, entvölkerten Länder von Mantua und Montferrat, und Frankreich faßte in Oberitalien Fuß. (Erst ein Dreivierteljahrhundert später sollte die kaiserliche Sache obsiegen: Der Spanische Erbfolgekrieg beendete die Auseinandersetzung 1708 im Sinne Habsburgs; der Herzog von Mantua und Montferrat stellte sich auf die französische Seite, und der Kaiser zog das Land ein.) - Die vorliegende Abschriftensammlung soll die Erbfolge des Hauses Gonzaga-Guastalla aus Archivalien und Urkunden belegen; dies unterstreicht auch das kaiserliche Supralibros am Vorderdeckel (Doppeladler; auf der Brust gevierter Wappenschild mit den Balken von Gonzaga und böhmischen Löwen, eingefaßt von spindelförmigem Ranken- und Knospenwerk, darin je im Oval die vier Evangelisten mit ihren Attributen) sowie am Hinterdeckel Guastallas aufbäumender Löwe im gekrönten Schild. Immer wieder gehen die Textzeugnisse ein auf die Feudalrechte der Gonzaga-Guastalla gegenüber ihren Vasallen und Untertanen und auf die Erblande der Gonzaga, insbesondere die Gebiete von Castiglione delle Stiviere und Castel Goffredo: "Ad perpetuam rei memoriam recognoscimus, ac postum facimus tenore praesentium universis, quod cum nobis submissime exponendum curavit. Illustris Ferdinandus Gonsaga, Priceps Castilionis a Stiveriis, Consanguineus et Princeps Noster charissimus, quem ad modum maiores olim sui ab Augustissimis Romanorum Imperatoribus & Regibus Praedecessoribus Nostris sacratissime recordationis super Marchionatu Castilionis a Stiverys, & Castro Guiffredi cum omnibus suis pertinentys investiti.

Am Schluß die eigenhändige Signatur von Kaiser Ferdinand III., gegengezeichnet von den Reichshofräten Conrad Hiltprandt und Johann Walderode.

        THE EIGHT VOLUMES OF LETTERS WRIT BY A TURKISH SPY,

      - ho liv'd five and forty years undiscover'd at Paris: giving an impartial account to the Divan at Constantinole, of the most remarkable transactions of Europe: And, discovering several intrigues and secrets ot the Christian Courts (especially of that of France). Continued from the year 1637, to the year 1682. In 8 volumes, totalling just over 2000 pages, with engraved frontispiece Volume I; post 12mo; early mottled calf boards with decorative gilt borders and edges, neatly rebacked, the new spines elaborately gilt in the style of the original binding of this set, and with gilt lettered dark green leather title labels, the boards occasionally slightly grazed, corners lightly worn; marbled edges and matching endpapers; armorial bookplate on upper pastedowns (except Volume II) and subsequent owner's bookplate on upper free endpapers (on the upper pastedown in Volume II), bookseller's stamp on verso of upper free endpaper or blank preliminary leaf each volume, scattered light foxing and occasional slight soiling; printed by A. Wilde, for G. Strahan, S. & E. Ballard, and others, London, 1748 [Volumes 3, 7 & 8] & 1753. Mixed editions [Volumes 3, 7 & 8 twelfth edition; Volumes 2, and 4-6 thirteenth edition, Volume I edition unspecified]. Lowndes p. 2721. *The first volume of Letters Writ by a Turkish Spy was written in Italian and published at Paris in 1684, then translated into English in 1687. The text is in the form of letters purportedly written by Mahmut, a mysterious Turk living in Paris and corresponding with notable public figures throughout Europe. The author was actually Giovanni Paolo Marana (1642-1693), an Italian political refugee and long-time French resident. Further volumes of this satire on seventeenth century politics and religion were published in English, and have been variously attributed to William Bradshaw and Robert Midgley, amongst others. The work was extremely popular, and Marana is generally credited with introducing the figure of the foreign observer as a literary device; a format later developed by others including Daniel Defoe, who published A continuation of the letters writ by a Turkish Spy in 1718.

        Foure Bookes of Du Bartas

      London - Printed by T. Paine, 1637 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A scarce first edition of L'Isle's translation of the works of Du BartasScarceFirst EditionRebacked with a new spine label and gilt lettering. With a large commentary by Simon Goulart de Senlis. Guillaume de Salluste Du Bartas (1544July 1590) was a French poet and soldier. A Huguenot, he served under Henry of Navarre. Du Bartas' poems went rapidly out of fashion as the 17th century, characterised by a tight and precise style. His his epic poems La Sepmaine, Creation du Monde and La Seconde Sepmaine retell the main events of the of the Bible from a Huguenot perspective. The Colonnyes, which is the third section of this book offers an insight into The New World of the 1600s. This volume has erratic pagination. This work was taken from La Seconde Semaine and was originally published as Part of Du Bartas in 1625. This volume appears to be missing the final leaf after Finis, which the ESTC (S116416) states should be anEpistle to the Lord Admirall. 1596. With French and English translations throughout. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is wear to the extremities including areas of loss and bumping. The inner hinges are strained and the end papers have been removed. Internally the pages are generally clean with the odd handling mark. There is the occasional institutional ink stamp but they do not interfear with the text. There are a couple of colour pencil notes to the front end papers. There is some slight chipping to the free end papers. Overall the condition of the book is very good..

        Cleombrotus, sive De ijs qui in aquis pereunt, philologica dissertatio

      Rome: Giacomo Faccioti, 1637. Rare first edition of this meditation inspired by the death of the author’s parents in a shipwreck, including (rather unexpectedly) the first engraved image of Bernini’s Barcaccia fountain, commissioned by Urban VIII and completed in 1629. This also appears to be the earliest reference in print to the Barcaccia: the earliest reference known to Hibbard and Jaffe was in Toti’s 1638 guidebook, a year later. Since the symbolism of the fountain’s double-prowed ship (visible in our engraving) is a matter of considerable debate, it is interesting that Lasena notes (pp. 74-77) that he and his friends often walked past the fountain in the evenings and discussed its meaning. He prints a poem in Greek written at the time of the fountain’s completion by the noted scholar and theologian Leone Allacci, and several poems by Gaspar de Simeonibus, one of which had won the favor of the pope himself. There is no mention in Cleombrotus of a story that apparently became popular in the 19th c., which linked the ship (which appears to be sinking) to a 1598 flood of the Tiber that left a ship washed up in the Piazza di Spagna, where the Barcaccia fountain now stands.According to the surviving documents the Barcaccia was constructed under the direction of Pietro Bernini, but Hibbard and Jaffe argue persuasively that the design was an early work of his son Gian Lorenzo, showing an emblematical concetto that is typically Berninesque. They consider the Barcaccia the first Roman fountain truly in the Baroque style.The Cleombrotus is a meditation on death by shipwreck or drowning, and includes eleven illustrations of monuments commemorating those who died such deaths. The inscription on Lasena’s portrait notes that he died in 1636, age 46. A bibliography of his works appears on ff. 3v-4r.OCLC: Yale. We have also located a copy in Hollis. Not at Getty or National Gallery.*Graesse IV, 113; Ceresa, Annali, 575; BMSTC p. 468; Pia8ntanida 219; Olschki, Choix, 8944.

        NEW ENGLISH CANAAN OR NEW CANAAN

      Amsterdam: Jacob Frederick Stam, 1637.. 188,[3]pp. 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. 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. CHURCH 437. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 637/69. JCB (3)II:265. STREETER SALE 616. SABIN 51028. STC 18202. VAIL 90.

        Bernardino Ricci detto il Tedeschino

      Acquaforte, 1637, firmata e datata in lastra in basso a destra. Esemplare nell?unico stato conosciuto. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana dei ?tre monti?, con inusuali ampli margini, lievi pieghe di carta nella parte superiore ed ai margini, piccolo strappo perfettamente restaurato in basso a sinistra, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Bernardino Ricci scrisse il libro Il Tedeschino overo difesa dell?arte del cavalier del piacer.. , libro nel quale difendeva la buffoneria ed i buffoni di corte, che nell?uso cortigiano iniziavano ad essere fuori moda. Nel libro egli spiega come, all?età di soli quattro anni gli venne imposto il soprannome di tedeschino, quando a corte in Camerino, sua città natale, fece il buffone per far divertire un gruppo di nobili provenienti dalla Germania. L?opera, dedicata alla principessa Vittoria di Urbino granduchessa di Toscana, presenta nella parte inferiore una veduta panoramica di Firenze.Lavoro raro e ricercato del maestro fiorentino. "Etching, 1637, signed and dated on plate at lower right. Example in the only known state. Beautiful proof, on contemporary laid paper, ""three mountains"" watermark, unusually wide margins, slight folds at the top and at the margins, a small perfectly repaired tear at lower left, overall in very good conditions. Bernardino Ricci wrote the book Il Tedeschino overo difesa dell?arte del cavalier del piacer.. (The Tedeschino or the defence of the art of the knight of pleasure..) in which he defended court jesters, who were getting out of fashion at the time. In this book he explains how it came to be that he was named the Tedeschino; when he was only four years old he acted as jester to amuse a group of german aristocrats who were visiting his home-town of Camerino. This work, dedicated to the princess Victoria of Urbino, Grand Duchess of Tuscany, features a view of Florence at the bottom. A rare and sought-after work by the florentine master."

        Geometria ... Anno 1637 Gallice edita; nunc autem cum notis Florimondi de Beaune . . . Latinam versa, & commentariis illustrata . . . Francisci a Schooten.Leyden: J. Maire, 1649.

      A fine copy of the important first Latin edition of Descarte's </i>Géométrie</i> - designated by John Stuart Mill as "the greatest single step ever made in the progress of the exact sciences" Originally published in French as an appendix to the <i>Discours de la Méthode</i> (1637), Descartes' coordinate geometry was ignored in several edition of the <i>Discours</i>. It was due to Van Schooten's Latin translation, with his extensive commentaries, that Cartesian geometry was widely adopted by the mathematical community, and thus paved the way for Newton and Leibniz. Landmark Writtings in Western Mathematics no 1 (citing both the 1637 original and the 1649 edition).<br/><br/> "It was from Schooten's edition of the <i>Géométrie</i> that contemporary mathematicians lacking proficiency in French first learned Cartesian mathematics. In this mathematics they encountered a systematic presentation of the material, not the customary, more classificatory approach that essentially listed single propositions, for the most part in unconnected parallel. Further, in the Cartesian scheme the central position was occupied by algebra, which Descartes considered to be the only 'precise form of mathematics'." (DSB). <br/><br/> "[Schooten] wrote a commentary on the text, explaining and completing points where proofs or steps were missing; he laid foundations; he linked the text to the theory in other publications; he simplified arguments; and made corrections, he systemized the contents, he widened the scope of the text (i.e., he made generalizations, answered questions that Descartes had left open, worked out similar cases, proposed new problems, and extended the theory."

        An album of original watercolour drawings of tulips on vellum

      [Holland: seventeenth century]. Folio. (12 1/2 x 8 inches). 48 watercolours of tulips on vellum, interleaved with plain paper with horn and crown watermark, each watercolour titled in ink below image, the first watercolour signed "Grein" at the lower right. Contemporary vellum over pasteboard, contained in a modern dark green morocco box, the covers with gilt-ruled borders, the spine in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second, the others with elaborate repeat pattern made up from flower-sprays and various small tools. A spectacular album containing finely-executed images on vellum of all the greatest 17th century varieties of tulips: a landmark in the history of botanical art in the Low Countries, and a unique record of the bulbs that inspired the speculative financial-madness called Tulipomania. The tulip, introduced to Europe in the middle of the sixteenth century from the Ottoman Empire, experienced a strong growth in popularity boosted by competition among the wealthy for possession of the rarest varieties. The tulip rapidly became a coveted luxury item, appearing in main-stream art as a symbol of wealth and as a decorative motif on ceramics and textiles. Special varieties were given exotic names or named after popular figures of the time: generals, admirals, etc. The most spectacular and highly sought-after tulips were the so-called "broken" varieties. These had two or more vivid colours: often a base colour of white or cream with red lines, or flames to the petals. The present album is devoted exclusively to these most expensive varieties. Tulipomania eventually reached a level where fantastic, unsustainable prices were being paid for individual bulbs. In 1637, the bubble burst and the over-heated market collapsed. For some years after this, the tulip&#39;s popularity remained at a low level but by the time the present album was produced its unique beauty was beginning once again to be appreciated. Tulip albums were produced for two principle reasons. First, as a selling tool for the bulb dealers: accurate images of what the bulbs they were offering were going to look like were obviously vital and the high prices of the tulipomania era set a precedent of employing artists of a very high quality to record the colours and details of the bulbs. These albums are almost exclusively made up of drawings on paper. One of the best known examples of this type of album is probably the 1637 tulip book of P. Cos, a nurseryman from Haarlem, Holland (now in the collection of the Wageningen Universiteit en Researchcentrum). Second, albums were produced as a collective record of the ephemeral beauty of the blooms grown by individuals, either professional growers or wealthy amateurs. The present album probably falls into this latter category: the original presentation of this album is on a much more luxurious scale than trade albums. The most obvious sign of this is the fact that each of the drawings is on vellum. Vellum, especially the prepared vellum used for the present album, was an expensive luxury material and an indicator that the drawings were commissioned by a wealthy individual (in France, for instance, King Louis XIV had all his botanical drawings executed on vellum: the so-called "velins du Roi"). Tulip albums, whatever their origin, are now very rare: according to Sam Segal (a world-renowned expert on tulips and the author of "Tulips in Visual Art",) there are now only about 50 of these albums extant. This includes albums with drawings on paper and also 18th century albums; thus, the actual number of seventeenth century albums with drawings on vellum is almost certainly no more than a handful. Most albums are in institutional collections, so the present album may well be the final example offered on the open market. Sam Segal offered the following information about the present album: the artist "Grein" is an unrecorded artist, but his name "is a Dutch name known since the early seventeenth century." The paper used for the interleaves is watermarked with a horn and crown, similar to paper known to have been made in Amsterdam and Leiden from 1665. The tulip types are from this period as well, before a relative great change in form and size during the eighteenth century. The flowers themselves carry names that "are known from the 1630s and 1640s, the period of and directly after the tulipomania ...they include the very expensive types of that period, like the &#39;Semper Augustus&#39; and &#39;Viceroy.&#39; As in many tulip books meant as a catalogue of a seller of bulbs, the illustrations show many related types. That might mean that they are tulips from one nursery or one collection from which the owner gave an order to the artist to paint his collection. The names of some of the tulips could point to a possible commissioner of the album, like &#39;General Doriszlav&#39; and &#39;Grootvorst van Moscovicz.&#39;" Dash,Tulipomania , London, 1999; Goldgar,Tulipomania , Chicago, 2007; Pavord,The Tulip,London, 1999; van der Goes (editor) Tulipomanie, Zwolle/Dresden, 2004; Wijnands,Tulips portrayed, Wageningen, 1987.

        Poems by Michael Drayton esquyer. Newly corrected and augmented

      Printed: 1637. 1563-1631 Octavo, 5 1/4 x 3.25 in. A-X12 This copy is bound in nineteenth century full red morocco, with gilt spine and edges Born within a year before Shakespeare, and dying when Milton was already twenty-three, he worked hard at poetry during nearly sixty years of his long life, and was successful in keeping in touch with the poetical progress of a crowded and swiftly-moving period. His earliest published work tastes of Tottel's Miscellany: before he dies, he suggests Carew and Suckling, and even anticipates Dryden. This quality of forming, as it were, a map or mirror of his age gives him a special interest to the student of poetry, which is quite distinct from his peculiar merits as a poet. This edition of the poems contains "The baron's wars", "England's heroical epistles", "The legend of Robert Duke of Normandy", "The legend of Matilda", "The legend of Pierce Gaveston", "The legend of Great Cromwell" and "Idea".

The general title to THE PSALTER... is the state without the word &#39;Pointed.&#39; 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. GRIFFITHS 1637:9. STC 16607 & 2736. ESTC S101893/S113851 & S122902.
