TAVERNIER (Melchior) & SAINT-CLAIR.
Paris, Melchior Tavernier, 1637. 405 x 533 mm. Très rare carte gravée figurant les îles de Sainte-Marguerite et Saint-Honorat, formant l'archipel de Lérins dans la baie de Cannes. Dressée par l'ingénieur Saint-Clair, elle fut publiée en 1637 par Melchior Tavernier dans son Théâtre géographique du royaume de France, puis par Pierre Mariette en 1650 dans le Théâtre géographique de France.

Graveur, imprimeur et hydrographe du roi, Melchior Tavernier, frère du célèbre voyageur Jean-Baptiste, fut à l'origine du développement de la cartographie française gravée du XVIIe siècle.

Simone CANTARINI detto "Il Pesarese" (Pesaro 1612 - Verona 1648)
1637. Acquaforte, circa 1637 - 40, priva di dati editoriali. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Le figure di Elisabetta e del piccolo Giovanni compaiono in controparte rispetto al disegno attribuito al Cantarini conservato a Brera e databile, secondo Emiliani al periodo 1637 - 40. L'opera deriva probabilmente da un dipinto dell'artista andato perduto, un tempo di proprietà della famiglia Boscoli di Parma. La composizione è semplice e ariosa e la testa del San Giuseppe è di chiarissima matrice reniana. L'incisione è dunque databile al periodo bolognese dell'artista, appena successivo al litigio con Guido Reni (1637 - 39). Bellissimo esemplare. Ex collezione: Martin - von - Wagner - Museum der Universität Würzburg (Lugt 2541c). W.S. (non identificato, Lugt 2650c) Etching, about 1637 - 40, without publishing details. Excellent work, printed on contemporary laid paper, with margins, in perfect condition. The figures of Elizabeth and the infant John appear in counterpart to the drawing attributed to Cantarini stored at Brera and, according with Emiliani, datable to the period 1637 - 40. The work probably comes from a painting by the artist lost, once property of the family Boscoli of Parma. The composition is simple and airy and the head of St. Joseph is clear matrix of Guido Reni. The etching is then dated to the Bolognese period of Cantarini, just after the quarrel with Guido Reni (1637 - 39). Beautiful example. Ex collection: Martin - von - Wagner - Museum der Universität Würzburg (Lugt 2541c). W.S. (unidentifie … [Click Below for Full Description]

DELLA BELLA STEFANO
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 - 1664 Stefano 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. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Numerose parti del testo sono in greco. Lagatura in piena pergamena coeva, abile restauro alle cuffie. Titolo manoscritto al dorso. Ottimo stato. La prima edizione di quest'opera venne pubblicata a Venzia nel 1568, seguirono diverse edizioni a conferma della grande fortuna del libro, ma solo a partire dalla quarta edizione del 1616, l'opera fu pubblicata con le ricche illustrazioni che troviamo anche in questa quinta edizione. Manca al Cat. Vinciana. M. FOSCARINI, Della letteratura veneziana 1854. Natale CONTI Nacque probabilmente a Milano nel 1520, dove si era trasferita la sua famiglia, di origine romana. Fanciullo, fu condotto poi dai genitori a Venezia. L'unica testimonianza sicura che si abbia circa il luogo della sua nascita è un'osservazione del Conti stesso. Nelle sue Historiae (l. IX, 1581, c. 182), dopo aver lodato la cortesia dei Milanesi, egli aggiunge: "neque illud dico, quod nostri eo migrarint Roma antiquitus, unde propter bella postea Venetias, cum essem parvulus profugerunt, sed quia res docet ita esse". Nelle sue opere il Conti si definisce costantemente "Venetus", e tale lo ritiene il Foscarini (p. 303), senza negare d'altra parte una sua nascita a Milano "per caso", sulla scorta dei Picinelli (p. 325). Per il più recente biografo, il Cranz (p. 31), il Conti, di famiglia veneziana, sarebbe nato e morto in Milano. Le notizie biografiche che lo riguardano … [Click Below for Full Description]

1637. 17 hh.(incluído frontis grabado)+374 pp.+3 hh. Enc. en pergamino de época. 20,5x15,5. Por Francisco de Lyra. Sevilla, 1637. "Palau ref. 244906: "Se ha censurado esta obra por fundarse en los falsos cronicones. Una de las principales impugnaciones la escribió Martín Anaya y Maldonado".La obra de Quintanadueñas se enmarca en el ámbito de la literatura devocional, un género que, durante mucho tiempo y sobre todo en la Baja Edad Moderna, despertó el interés y la atracción de un importante número de lectores. En este sentido, las hagiografías o historia de las vidas de los santos se convirtieron en pleno siglo XVII en verdaderos paradigmas para los fieles, ya que constituían una fuente inagotable de donde extraer miles de ejemplos a imitar. Estas obras nos relatan todas las peripecias que acontecen al futuro santo, desde su nacimiento hasta el anhelado momento en que se reviste de categoría celestial. El lector, atraído por estas singulares historias, dará rienda suelta a su imaginación y "acompañará" al santo en su "camino de perfección".Además, estas fantásticas narraciones, muchas veces revestidas de gran realismo, se leían en los púlpitos como sermones y se incluían en los calendarios anuales, de los que se hacían versiones cortas del santo de cada día. Precisamente, Quintanadueñas, en la dedicatoria de su obra Santos de la ciudad de Sevilla que hace al cabildo catedralicio hispalense, fechada el 4 de febrero de 1637, se refiere a los motivos que le impulsaron a escribir esta obra, relatar la vida de aquellos santos que dicha instancia, por acuerdo capitular de 1624, d … [Click Below for Full Description]

1637. Blumenthal: Theatre Art of the Medici 81 and pp. 160-77. Le Nozze degli Dei was written to celebrate the wedding of Duke Ferdinando II de' Medici and Vittoria della Rovere, daughter of the Duke of Urbino, and first performed in Florence at the Palazzo Pitti on July 8, 1637. The libretto was by Giovanni Carlo Coppola, the music by Gagliano and others, the staging by Alfonso Parigi, and the dances by Agnolo Ricci. Della Bella executed a series of six etchings of scenes from the opera. "As maestro di cappella for nearly 35 years to the Grand Duke of Tuscany and of Florence Cathedral (S Maria del Fiore), [Gagliano] was one of the most important Italian musicians of the period. His Dafne (1608) is a milestone in the early history of opera, and his secular madrigals and monodies and many sacred works in various genres, though now little known, were much acclaimed in the first half of the 17th century." Edward Strainchamps in Grove Music Online. Della Bella (1610-1664), a noted Italian printmaker, enjoyed the patronage of the Medicis; he also made trips to Florence to record the court festivities of the Medici. Parigi (1606-1656) was a noted Italian architect and engraver.. 205 x 290 mm. A fine impression on laid paper. One vertical crease, flattened; trimmed just outside borderline; remnants of hinges to upper corners of verso.

[Book of Common Prayer - Episcopalian Church in Scotland]
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.

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. Hard Cover. Fair. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Theodore Haak
First English Edition of 1637 Dutch Bible. Rare reformation Commonwealth Bible with Cavinist Annotations. Renowned influential First Edition english translation of both text and notes of the famous dutch Bible of 1637, the preparation of which had been ordered by the Synod of Dort. 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. Its rarity is presumed due to later reaction against such "low church" theology: many such works were destroyed after the Restoration. The Annotations are enclosed within brackets, and mingled with the text, which is printed in italics. Box - 22

CATS, Jacob (1577-1660);
t' Amsterdam Hendrick vander Putte, Papier en Boekverkooper op't Water, in de Lootsman [n.d.] Early eighteenth century edition (based on the imprint) of the Dutch poet and politician's rhymed dissertations on marriage and conjugal fidelity, first published in Dordrecht, in 1637. 16mo: [44], 673, [3]pp, with an engraved title page (in addition to the letterpress title) to the first work, two engraved full-page portraits (one of Anna Maria Schurmans and one of Jacob Cats), and a full-page allegorical engraving, 'Het Derde Deel,' in addition to 51 half-page engravings in the text. Contemporary vellum, with 'J. Cats' in manuscript to the spine. The binding is soiled but sound, the pages and plates clean, but with occasional browning, finger-soiling and mild staining. Marginal loss to S3, affecting neither the text nor the plate on p. 234. Contemporary ownership inscriptions to both fly leaves. Very Good+ Cats was one of the distinguished Dutch writers of Holland's golden age, but his Orangist and Calvinistic opinions set him apart from the liberal school of Amsterdam poets. Still, for nearly two centuries, he enjoyed enormous popularity. In this, perhaps his most important work, Cats treats human behavior and society in all its aspects through the lens of marriage, both human and spiritual (the marriage of Christ and His Church). Examples are taken from the Bible (Adam and Eve, David and Abigail) and from classical and modern authors (Cyrus and Aspasia, Marc Anthony and Cleopatra). Also included are discussions of marriage after rape, the breaking of marriage bonds, adultery, … [Click Below for Full Description]

WELBY, Henry [HEYWOOD, Thomas]
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Morton, Thomas
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]
