SAXTON, Christopher & William Kip.
London., 1637. olim pars danmoniorum. Size: 320 x 405 mm. Copperplate engraving with later hand colour. Good condition. Minor repairs to splits to central fold. A highly decorative and desirable early map of Cornwall, by William Kip, based on the earlier map by Elizabethan cartographer, Christopher Saxton. Published in William Camden's "Britannia". The map is embellished with compass dividers, a sea galleon, a compass rose, a sea monster and a decorative inset of Launceston Castle. The map is very detailed featuring many towns and villages, together with hills, rivers, castles and stately homes. Originally, in 1586, Camden's work was a detailed historical and topographical description of Britain. Hole & Kip added their maps to this work in 1607.

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 dr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Drayton, Michael
London: 1637: W. Stansby for J. Smethwick. 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".

Only St.Paul & Pentateuch were published while he was still in Belgium, he was then called to Rome where he was Professor of Hebrew and Scripture and where he spent the last 20 years teaching and editing his commentaries until his death in 1637. This, as several of his other works were only published after his death and then were in almost continual print as "They explain not only the literal, but also the allegorical, tropological, and anagogical sense of the sacred text, and furnish a large number of quotations from the Fathers and the later interpreters of Holy Writ" [Catholic Encyc.]

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 reforme … [Click Below for Full Description]
