        The generall historie of the Turkes, from the first beginning of that nation to the rising of the Ottoman familie [.]. Together with the lives and conquests of the Ottoman kings and emperours.

      [London], Adam Islip, 1638. - Folio (235 x 335 mm). (10), 1500, (20), 31, (33) pp. Original half vellum over wooden boards. Gilt embossed red label to spine. All edges red. Fifth edition. "The great history of the Turks by Knolles (c. 1550-1610), the prose of which earned the praise of Samuel Johnson, and was later utilised by such travellers as Byron [.] The fine medallion portraits of the Turkish kings, emperors and sultans together with their (mostly) Christian adversaries, were adapted by Laurence Johnson from Jean Jacques Boissard's 'Vitae et Icones Sultanorum' (1596)" (Blackmer 919). "The recent victories of Mahomet III over the Christians must have rendered the Turkish question of vital interest to the security of Europe, and the struggle remained in the balance till the end of the seventeenth century" (Hind II, 36-38). - The first folio edition appeared in 1603. James VI of Scotland became James I of England in March of that year following the death of Elizabeth I. Knolles took advantage of the dynastic transition by dedicating the work to "the High and Mightie Prince James". Knolles' "Historie" is based heavily on a range of 16th-century printed chronicles and reports. It is, therefore, essentially a synthesis of other works, but a carefully crafted synthesis produced in English. Nothing of this scale and detail had appeared before in English on the Ottomans, and it would be another fifty years before a subsequent work in English would become the authority on the subject. Despite this fact, both Samuel Johnson and Lord Byron turned to Knolles centuries later, and both alluded to the richness of his prose style. William Shakespeare, moreover, likely used Knolles’ work (and possibly an earlier manuscript version) as a source for his 'Othello' (1603/04) (cf. Parry, 2003). - First and final leaves remargined.

        (Bizzarrie per maschere, con acconciature e copricapi antropomorfi e zoomorfi) ''Agostino Mitelli intagliò / R N 12'' (rami n.12). S.l. né t., 1638

      1638. in - 4 oblungo (mm 190x264), 12 tavole, bella legatura coeva in pergamena floscia, i piatti adorni di riquadro di filetti con 8 fregi agli angoli (stella e 3 monti, stemma della famiglia Albani; un Francesco Albani, Bologna 1578 - 1660 fu pittore di fama formatosi alla scuola dei Carracci, fu attivo a Roma e Bologna). Il frontespizio inciso è costituito da una composizione in forma di rebus nella quale il nome dell'artista è formata da vari attrezzi a forma di lettere con numerazione progressiva. Le 11 tavole raffigurano ognuna un busto maschile ed uno femminile con elaborate e stravaganti acconciature e copricapi ed elmi, alcuni con straordinarie estensioni antropomorfe e zoomorfe. Le tavole (3), (11) e (12) sono firmate "A.M.F." Serie di capricci di grande fantasia e raffinatezza, inventata ed incisa da Agostino, padre di Giuseppe Maria Mitelli (Battidizzo 1609 - Madrid 1660), noto pittore esponente della "quadratura" ed autore di poche e rarissime serie di incisioni fantastiche. La data sulla prima tavola è da leggersi 1638, in quanto Agostino morì nel 1660 e la datazione 1688 è assai improbabile a causa del cambiamento della moda. Alcune tavole derivano dalla serie di 20 tavole dell'orafo Denis (Daniel) Boutemie, poste in vendita da Moncornet a Parigi nel 1636 "Ouvrage rare et nouveau.. Contenant plusieurs desseins de merveilleuse recreation .. sous diuerses caprices et gentillesses representees en l'industrieuse decoupure d'un chappeau en l'industrieuse decoupure d'un chapeau.." (1636). Le tavole furono inventate "en faueur des studieux et curieux de la pourtraicture et de/ tous Orfeures, Graueurs, Ciseleurs, Sculpteurs, menusieurs et autres"; nell'ultima tavola spiega la curiosa tecnica di taglio e piegatura del tessuto: «La rareté du chappeau est, qu'apres auoir representé/ toutes ces figures et diuersement decouppe ; il se r'assemble en sa premiere forme sans que lon y/ puisse apperceuoir aucunne ouuerture ». Fino al XVIII secolo i manufatti «caprices merveuilleux» inventati dall' orafo venivano chiamati «bouthemies». A questo proposito cfr. P.FUHRING et M.BIMBENET - PRIVAT, ?Le Style «Cosses de pois», Gazette des Beaux Arts, 01/2002, pp.1 - 224, che cita le 12 tavole di Mitelli ai n.88 - 99 confermandone la datazione 1638. Esemplare marginoso, con qualche alone e piccolo lavoro di tarlo restaurato nel margine inf. di 3 tavole. Serie di incisioni di eccezionale rarità, mancante alla National Gallery di Washington ed al Berlin Kat., che al n.310 descrive la serie del Boutemie e cita il riferimento al Mitelli, datandolo 1638. È censita in sole tre collezioni: Bologna, BCA, Cart. Cozzadini I/IV; Firenze. Marucelliana, Stampe vol. 109, n. 10 (1 pl.); Lipsia, GM. M.K.

        Anatomy of Melancholy What it is, With all the Kinds of Causes, Symptomes, Prognostics & Severall Cures for it. In Three Partitions with Their Severall Sections, Members and Subsections. Philosophically, Medicinally, Historically Opened & Cut Up. by Democritus Junior. With a Satyricall Preface Conducing to the Following Discourse. The Fifth Edition, Corrected and Augmented by the Author.

      Oxford Henry Cripps 1638 - 5th ed. Folio. Bound in contemporary English smooth paneled calf. Rebacked. Iconic engraved title. Edges stained red. Collated. Scattered spotting. Light, mostly marginal dampstaining. Provenance: Early signature of Will Westby on title, Armorial bookplate of William Westby on front paste down. From the estate of the noted American industrialist, Alfred I. duPont. First published in 1621, The Anatomy of Melancholy was a landmark book in psychology. This edition was the last to appear in Burton's lifetime. The book was presented as a medical textbook on the subject of melancholia (clinical depression). The Anatomy of Melancholy is as much a sui generis work of literature as it is a scientific or philosophical text, and Burton addresses far more than his stated subject. In fact, the Anatomy uses melancholy as the lens through which all human emotion and thought may be scrutinized, and virtually the entire contents of a 17th-century library are marshaled into service of this goal. It is encyclopedic in its range and reference. "This deeply serious work by a layman was said by Osler to be "a great medical treatise" (Osler 4621). The author, under the assumed name of Democritus Junior, offers many causes for melancholy, discusses the cure of its many forms and, in his studious discussion, throws much light on the customs and social attitudes of the day. It is a medical work in that, in all its seventy and more editions, it has continued to express the author's understanding of human psychiatric problems. Almost half of the thousand references to other authors are medical. The work was one of Dr. Samuel Johnson's favorites.? - Heirs of Hippocrates No. 406. "Robert Burton's The Anatomy of Melancholy (1638) begins with a magnificent confection, a title page of ten compartments each corresponding to a numbered stanza in the prefatory poem 'The Argument of the Frontispiece.' The diagram shows how image and stanza are linked. The poem, which repays study, is at right [transcribed in Tufte]. Compartment 10, for example, portrays Burton, not out of vanity of the author but rather at the insistence of the printed, at least according to the amusing stanza 10. This design is very special information display. The title page and accompanying poem reflect the book's argument, organization, and intellectual method. That method -- the cutting and pasting of images and words -- is announced in the opening lines: Ten distinct Squares here seene apart, And joyn'd in one by Cutters art. Moreover, the confectionary design of the title page reproduces the intellectual architecture of The Anatomy of Melancholy: about one-third of the book consists of quotations and another third of paraphrases. A busy cutter indeed, and Burton disingenuously comments: Marke well: If't be not as't should be, Blame the bad Cutter and not me (Tufte, Visual Explanations, pp.134-5). Refs: STC 4163.

        Anatomy of Melancholy What it is, With all the Kinds of Causes, Symptomes, Prognostics & Severall Cures for it. In Three Partitions with Their Severall Sections, Members and Subsections. Philosophically, Medicinally, Historically Opened & Cut Up. by Democritus Junior. With a Satyricall Preface Conducing to the Following Discourse. The Fifth Edition, Corrected and Augmented by the Author

      Oxford Henry Cripps, 1638-01-01. Hardcover. Good. 5th ed. Folio. Bound in contemporary English smooth paneled calf. Rebacked. Iconic engraved title. Edges stained red. Collated. Scattered spotting. Light, mostly marginal dampstaining. Provenance: Early signature of Will Westby on title, Armorial bookplate of William Westby on front paste down. From the estate of the noted American industrialist, Alfred I. duPont. <br>First published in 1621, The Anatomy of Melancholy was a landmark book in psychology. This edition was the last to appear in Burton's lifetime. <br> The book was presented as a medical textbook on the subject of melancholia (clinical depression). The Anatomy of Melancholy is as much a sui generis work of literature as it is a scientific or philosophical text, and Burton addresses far more than his stated subject. In fact, the Anatomy uses melancholy as the lens through which all human emotion and thought may be scrutinized, and virtually the entire contents of a 17th-century library are marshaled into service of this goal. It is encyclopedic in its range and reference. <br> "This deeply serious work by a layman was said by Osler to be "a great medical treatise" (Osler 4621). The author, under the assumed name of Democritus Junior, offers many causes for melancholy, discusses the cure of its many forms and, in his studious discussion, throws much light on the customs and social attitudes of the day. It is a medical work in that, in all its seventy and more editions, it has continued to express the author's understanding of human psychiatric problems. Almost half of the thousand references to other authors are medical. The work was one of Dr. Samuel Johnson's favorites.â? - Heirs of Hippocrates No. 406. <br> "Robert Burton's The Anatomy of Melancholy (1638) begins with a magnificent confection, a title page of ten compartments each corresponding to a numbered stanza in the prefatory poem 'The Argument of the Frontispiece.' The diagram shows how image and stanza are linked. The poem, which repays study, is at right [transcribed in Tufte]. Compartment 10, for example, portrays Burton, not out of vanity of the author but rather at the insistence of the printed, at least according to the amusing stanza 10. This design is very special information display. The title page and accompanying poem reflect the book's argument, organization, and intellectual method. That method -- the cutting and pasting of images and words -- is announced in the opening lines: Ten distinct Squares here seene apart, And joyn'd in one by Cutters art. Moreover, the confectionary design of the title page reproduces the intellectual architecture of The Anatomy of Melancholy: about one-third of the book consists of quotations and another third of paraphrases. A busy cutter indeed, and Burton disingenuously comments: Marke well: If't be not as't should be, Blame the bad Cutter and not me (Tufte, Visual Explanations, pp.134-5). Refs: STC 4163.

      London : Printed [by Miles Flesher] for Iohn Clark, MDCXXXVIII. [1638] - 1638 1ed Religion Protestants Chillingworth Puritan Oxford Sola Scriptura BIBLE Chillingworth (1602 &#150; 1644) sole authority of the Bible William Chillingworth (1602 &#150; 1644) was a controversial English churchman. His major work was an intervention in another controversy, undertaken in defense of Christopher Potter, Provost of The Queen's College, Oxford, against the Jesuit Edward Knott. Edward Knott, real name Matthew Wilson (1582&#150;1656) was an English Jesuit controversialist. We find this same book for sale elsewhere for $800! Main author: William Chillingworth Title: The religion of protestants a safe way to salvation. Or An ansvver to a booke entitled Mercy and truth, or charitie maintain'd by Catholiques: which pretends to prove the contrary Published: London : Printed [by Miles Flesher] for Iohn Clark, MDCXXXVIII. [1638] Language: English Notes & contents: &#149; 1st edition &#149; The Religion of Protestants was an intervention in another controversy, undertaken in defense of Christopher Potter, Provost of The Queen's College, Oxford, against the Jesuit Edward Knott. Potter had replied in 1633 to Knott's Charity Mistaken (1630), and Knott retaliated with Mercy and Truth, which Chillingworth attempted to answer. Knott brought out a preemptive pamphlet tending to show that Chillingworth was a Socinian. Chillingworth wrote The Religion of Protestants while staying at Great Tew, owned by Lucius Cary (by then Lord Falkland). Laud, now Archbishop of Canterbury, was anxious about Chillingworth's reply to Knott, and at his request it was examined by Richard Baily, John Prideaux, and Samuel Fell, and published with their approval in 1637, with the title The Religion of Protestants a Safe Way to Salvation.[1] &#149; The main argument is a vindication of the sole authority of the Bible in spiritual matters, and of the free right of the individual conscience to interpret it. In the preface Chillingworth expresses his new view about subscription to the articles. "For the Church of England," he there says, "I am persuaded that the constant doctrine of it is so pure and orthodox, that whosoever believes it, and lives according to it, undoubtedly he shall be saved, and that there is no error in it which may necessitate or warrant any man to disturb the peace or renounce the communion of it. This, in my opinion, is all intended by subscription."

        Paraphrase vpon the divine poems.

      London: [Printed by John Legatt, sold] at the Bell in St. Pauls Church-yard [i.e., the shop of Andrew Hebb] Folio (27.8 cm; 11"). [22], 55, [13], 171, [1], 15, [3], 33, [1] pp.. 1638 First edition of this collection of poetry inspired by Job, Psalms, Ecclesiastes, Lamentations, and various songs in the Old and New Testaments, published with commendatory poems from Henry King, Sidney Godolphin, Thomas Carew, and Edmund Waller. One section, The Paraphrase upon the Psalmes of David, separately published in 1636, here => appears for the first time with accompanying music by Henry Lawes, who set the verse of many Cavalier poets to music; Sandys certainly was friends with several of that circle embracing members of the Tribe of Ben, as is seen by their above-mentioned poems of acclaim. He is also, commonly, placed in the group of 17th-century poets centered on Michael Drayton. Sometime courtier, foreign service officer, and American colonist, curious traveller and travel writer, and committed translator and poet, Sandys (1578–1644) => spent some years as treasurer for the English colony in Virginia, in which period he completed an English translation of Ovid's Metamorphosis that had been encouraged in verse by Drayton and was praised by Dryden and Pope. The diverse couplets distinguishing this Paraphrase upon the Divine Poems — not straitly "heroic" in the 18th-century style but typically muscular and elegant in ways looking forward to that — well show why he was admired and imitated for his achievements in the form. As with some other copies, p.13 has a very neat interlinear manuscript correction to one word on the second line. This copy retains the often missing half-title at 3A1, "A paraphrase on the Lamentations of Jeremiah by G. S." Evidence of readership: One annotation at the end of Psalm 100 or just above Psalm 101; possibly musical notation of a style related to neumes. Provenance: Inked inscription in upper margin of leaf *2: "Penelope Sandys her Booke given me by the author." This almost certainly is Penelope (Sandys) Lechmere (1617–90), daughter of Edwin Sandys II, George Sandys's eldest brother. Later in the Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released), with Howell's bookplate and booklabel on pastedowns. Contemporary plain-style brown calf, spine with raised bands and without label, covers framed in blind with a double rule; rubbed and abraded, front joint cracking but cover firmly attached. Variable soiling and creasing, and light age-toning; title-page and a sectional title-leaf repaired in old ways, the former with replacement of type; one leaf with lower (blank) third excised; and a few leaves with smears or blots of old ink. Provenance markings as above, with call and accession numbers on title-page verso, pencilling on endpapers and one leaf of text, circulation materials at back; as noted, one marginal annotation. => An important book with an appealing provenance.

Frambotti, 1638-40. 4to (222 x 160mm). pp. (14), 144; 4, 54; (8), 80, (4), with 73 partly full-page woodcuts in the text (Together with:) VESLING, J.

A fine and well preserved copy of this attractively illustrated flora. First edition with Vesling's commentaries, comprising the second edition of Alpini's work on Egyptian plants and his tract on balsam (first 1592), both edited by Vesling, along with his own work which forms a supplement to Alpini. Alpini's work was the first treatment of the plants of Egypt. He accompanied the Venetian consul to Egypt as his personal physician, residing there from 1580 to 1583. He was the first European to mention the coffee plant, and the first to record the sexual differences of the date-palm tree. Alpini was Director of the Botanic Garden at Padua (1603-1616) and Johann Vesling was director of the same garden from 1638 to 1649./Vesling served as physician to Alvise Cornaro during the latter's term as Venetian representative in Cairo. The two men left for Egypt at the beginning of August 1628. Vesling studied the flora of the country with great interest. In many cases his observations were more accurate than those previously made by Prospero Alpini, and his book on the subject is also better illustrated than the latter's. Of particular interest are his comments on the coffee plant. The present volume comprises 5 different works bound together.//Provenance: Signature of Carl Heinrich Schultz (1805-1867), German physician and botanist.//Nissen BBI, 20 & 2057; Pritzel 9749.

With inkstamps of Trinity College, Dublin (duplicate) and manuscript note dated 1882. From the important library of Jean R. Perrette, his sale, Ex Libris Jean R. Perrette: Important Travel, Exploration & Cartography, April 5, 2016, Christie's sale 12259, Lot 484. First edition. SCARCE. Sully was Prime Minister to King Henry IV of France and a staunch Huguenot. This original edition of Sully's Memoires was secretly printed at the Chateau de Sully and published a false address in Amsterdam. His real printer, who was from Angers, is still unknown. In 1596 Sully was added to Henry's finance commission, and set about putting France's economic affairs in order. Acting as sole Superintendent of Finances by the end of 1601, he authorized the free exportation of grain and wine, reduced legal interest, established a special court to try cases of embezzlement, forbade provincial governors to raise money on their own authority, and otherwise removed many abuses of tax-collecting. Sully was appointed head of a government road-building service in 1599, and thereafter road-building became a major preoccupation of the French government. The financial and agrarian reforms led by Sully helped to repair the damage to France's economy caused by the Wars of Religion (1562-1598). He encouraged agriculture, urged the free circulation of produce, promoted stock-raising, forbade the destruction of the forests, drained swamps, built roads and bridges, planned a vast system of canals and actually began the Canal de Briare. He strengthened the French military, and under his direction, the construction of a great line of defense along the frontiers began. After the death of Henry IV in 1610 Sully was forced to resign and lived away from court, although occasionally he provided some service or advice to Louis XIII. He retired to his estate and dictated his memoirs [as here], in which he glorifies Henry IV and his work, in particular evoking his "Grand Design" of a confederation of European states. Brunet states that the 'Paralleles de Cesar et de Henry le Grand' are printed in Roman characters in the first edition and are to be found on pp. 469-476; they are in Roman type in the present copy, though they are on pp. 470-479. Lacking errata present in some copies, but not called for in Brunet. Sully's memoirs are very valuable for the history of the time and are, in part, Sully's autobiography. These memoirs are remarkable for their often-reprinted account of the "Great Design," which Sully attributes to Henry IV and which was a European confederation, or "Christian republic," to be established after the defeat of Austria and Spain. Brunet V: 589-590.

        Bizzarrie per maschere, con acconciature e copricapi antropomorfi e zoomorfi)

      ''Agostino Mitelli intagliò / R N 12'' (rami n.12). S.l. né t., 1638 - in-4 oblungo (mm 190x264), 12 tavole, bella legatura coeva in pergamena floscia, i piatti adorni di riquadro di filetti con 8 fregi agli angoli (stella e 3 monti, stemma della famiglia Albani; un Francesco Albani, Bologna 1578-1660 fu pittore di fama formatosi alla scuola dei Carracci, fu attivo a Roma e Bologna). Il frontespizio inciso è costituito da una composizione in forma di rebus nella quale il nome dell'artista è formata da vari attrezzi a forma di lettere con numerazione progressiva. Le 11 tavole raffigurano ognuna un busto maschile ed uno femminile con elaborate e stravaganti acconciature e copricapi ed elmi, alcuni con straordinarie estensioni antropomorfe e zoomorfe. Le tavole (3), (11) e (12) sono firmate "A.M.F." Serie di capricci di grande fantasia e raffinatezza, inventata ed incisa da Agostino, padre di Giuseppe Maria Mitelli (Battidizzo 1609 - Madrid 1660), noto pittore esponente della "quadratura" ed autore di poche e rarissime serie di incisioni fantastiche. La data sulla prima tavola è da leggersi 1638, in quanto Agostino morì nel 1660 e la datazione 1688 è assai improbabile a causa del cambiamento della moda. Alcune tavole derivano dalla serie di 20 tavole dell'orafo Denis (Daniel) Boutemie, poste in vendita da Moncornet a Parigi nel 1636 "Ouvrage rare et nouveau. Contenant plusieurs desseins de merveilleuse recreation . sous diuerses caprices et gentillesses representees en l'industrieuse decoupure d'un chappeau en l'industrieuse decoupure d'un chapeau." (1636). Le tavole furono inventate "en faueur des studieux et curieux de la pourtraicture et de/ tous Orfeures, Graueurs, Ciseleurs, Sculpteurs, menusieurs et autres"; nell'ultima tavola spiega la curiosa tecnica di taglio e piegatura del tessuto: «La rareté du chappeau est, qu'apres auoir representé/ toutes ces figures et diuersement decouppe ; il se r'assemble en sa premiere forme sans que lon y/ puisse apperceuoir aucunne ouuerture ». Fino al XVIII secolo i manufatti «caprices merveuilleux» inventati dall' orafo venivano chiamati «bouthemies». A questo proposito cfr. P.FUHRING et M.BIMBENET-PRIVAT, ?Le Style «Cosses de pois», Gazette des Beaux Arts, 01/2002, pp.1-224, che cita le 12 tavole di Mitelli ai n.88-99 confermandone la datazione 1638. Esemplare marginoso, con qualche alone e piccolo lavoro di tarlo restaurato nel margine inf. di 3 tavole. Serie di incisioni di eccezionale rarità, mancante alla National Gallery di Washington ed al Berlin Kat., che al n.310 descrive la serie del Boutemie e cita il riferimento al Mitelli, datandolo 1638.

        The Religion of Protestants A Safe Way to Salvation. Or An Answer to a Booke Entitled Mercy and Truth Or, Charity maintain'd by Catholiques, Which pretends to prove the Contrary

      Leonard Lichfield, Printer to the University, Oxford 1638 - First edition. [32], 413, [3] pp., including final blank leaf; and with a [20] pp. manuscript "Table of Contente" in a contemporary hand, bound in at rear. 1 vols. Folio. A Cornerstone of the Anglican Church. Chillingworth (1602-1644), grandson of Archbishop Laud, was one of the brilliant circle of wits and divines who gathered at Great Tew after the Restoration to discuss poetry as well as theological issues. After converting to Catholicism, then back to Protestantism, Chillingworth wrote this his magnum opus, which became a cornerstone of post-Restoration theology. His book and the clarity of his reasoning was praised by Locke, and, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica, "the whole gist of his argument, is expressed in a single sentence, 'I am fully assured that God does not, and therefore that men ought not to, require any more of any man than this, to believe the Scripture to be God's word, and to endeavour to find the true sense of it, and to live according to it.'".

For though in several of the earlier books in English on the military art in general there are chapters, or sections devoted to this branch, these notices, at best, are fragmentary. Marolois' treatise describes the Dutch system, and has a table showing the dimensions of a fortification. See: Laurence Hall Fowler, The Fowler Architectural Collection of the John Hopkins University, pages 159-160; Maurice J. D. Cockle, A Bibliography of Military Books up to 1641, page 111, reference 139. See also Sotheby's, The Library of the Earls of Macclesfield part 10, page 234, reference 3640.

Operâ & studio Eliae PetilI presbyteri.

      Londini: Typis Tho. Cotes pro Richardo Whitakero 8vo (16.1 cm, 6.5"). [262] pp. (lacking prelim. blank f.). [?1A4?4(-?1) ?4?4 ¶4¶¶4¶¶¶1 B–N4 A–04 P2].. 1638 First Greek translation of the entire Liturgy, including the Psalter, done by Elias Petley from the 1604 English Prayer Book. The Oxford Guide to the Book of Common Prayer describes this work as "reflecting an interest in Anglican-Orthodox union being promoted by Archbishop Laud and the Greek Patriarch Cyril Lucar"; the volume is dedicated to Laud. The main title-page is printed in red and black; the separate title-page for the Psalter has a neat woodcut printer's vignette and blazons (in Greek type) Psalterion prophetou kai basileos tou Dabid. The elegant Greek type is set in double columns, with some nicely laid in typographic ornaments and decorated capitals. The signing is erratic, but the collation of this example matches most recorded descriptions: Leaf ?1, apparently a cancel in a few copies but lacking in most reported examples and not present here, was a supplemental title-page giving Biblos d?mosi?n euch?n, kai leitourg?se?s myst?ri?n; Griffiths calls for only one preliminary leaf, as is found here, with the other leaf in the gathering being a blank. Leaf 1C2 is a cancel. Provenance: Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Twistleton Fiennes, with that family's motto: "Fortem posce animum"; front free endpaper rubber-stamped "Birch" and front fly-leaf inked "Tho.s Birch e Coll. Herts. Oxon." (apparently neither the historian nor the marine painter); title-page with inked monogram (obscure). Contemporary speckled calf, covers framed in gilt double fillets, rebacked with speckled calf quite plainly (without labels but with gilt-dotted raised bands); corners rubbed, original leather showing expectable acid-pitting. One preliminary blank (only) lacking; title-pages trimmed closely at outer edge, affecting typographical border and (on main page) one letter of publication information. Ownership marks as above. Pages lightly age-toned, otherwise clean; tiny spot of worming in lower inner margin, not affecting text. => A handsome and evocative little book.

        Piramide baptismal, o inscripcion cronologica, historica, genealogica, i panegirica ... Dedicada a las felicissimas memorias del sacro, soberano, i real baptismo, de la serenissima Infante de Ambas Españas Doña Maria Teresa Bibiana de Austria.

      Madrid: Por la viuda de Alonso Martin Folio (28.2 cm, 11.1"). [4], 6 ff.. 1638 Known for his Avisos históricos, Pellicer — along with other literary lights — here provides encomium, history, and genealogy on the occasion of the baptism of María Teresa of Spain. The author's name is also sometimes given as Joseph Pellicer y Ossau de Tovar (alternatively Touar/Tobar), with numerous other variants seen. This is a scarce publication: OCLC finding only one holding, in the U.K. By an interesting woman printer. Removed from a nonce volume. Light waterstaining, mostly to inner corners. Trimmed closely, with shouldernotes and first or last few letters shaved in some instances. One leaf with tear from upper margin extending into text, repaired some time ago, obscuring a few words.

        The book of common prayer, and administration of the sacraments: And other rites and ceremonies of the Church of England

      [Cambridge]: Thomas Buck & Roger Daniel Folio (35 cm, 13.75"). [96] pp. (of 104).. 1638 An excellent example of the Anglican prayer book as it stood under Charles I, produced by two names prominent among the 17th-century printers to the University of Cambridge, and here with "The Psalmes of David, of the Old Translation" as issued. A number of "fleuronic ornaments" (as Griffiths puts it) are present, including the title-page frame; the text is also decorated with three tailpieces and a number of different types of ornamental capitals, and is printed in double-column format in a large, easy to read roman. => The title-page verso is all but completely filled with inked meditations taken from Bishop Gibson's pastoral letters, inscribed in an 18th-century hand. Later period-style black morocco framed and panelled in double gilt fillets and gilt roll with gilt-stamped corner fleurons, spine with gilt-stamped title and gilt-ruled raised bands; boards slightly bowed, gilt showing small spots of rubbing. Lower (closed) page edges institutionally rubber-stamped, title-page and one other perforation-stamped, first almanac page with numerals rubber-stamped in lower portion. Final four leaves lacking (from Psalms). Title-page verso with annotations as above; two pages of almanac with early inked corrections; one text page with early inked pointer in inner margin. Title-page darkened; areas of waterstaining to some outer and inner margins. Pleasing despite minor loss at back and faults noted; a nice Buck and Daniel printing, with engaging evidence of readership.
