        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. Madan II, 881. Printing in the Mind of Man 108; Garrison-Morton 4918 (both citing 1st ed).

        Relacion de la refriega que tuvo con catorce navios de Turcos a la vista de Tarifa, y Tanger el Capitan Don Luis del Campo que yba a Levante, a cargo del General Roque Centeno, con su navio solo llamado Sanson

      1638 - Rare relation of a sea engagement in the Levant, between 14 Turkish ships against one Spanish vessel. 1638. Madrid. Diego Diaz de la Carrera. In folio (280 mm x 200 mm). 2 ff. Unbound. Minor spotting, and toning, else fine; old foliation. Very rare imprint, giving news of the sea engagement between a Spanish vessel and 14 Turkish ships; the careful detail in which the author narrates the events &#150;number of pieces of artillery shot, damages suffered in the ship, flags displayed, the difficulty of navigation during the evening, and others- is remarkable. The Spanish went back to Gibraltar, when heard news of the sinking of one of the 14 Turkish ships.

        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.

        De Plantis Aegypti liber. Cum observationibus & notis Ioannis Veslingii ... accessit Alpini de Balsamo Liber. Editio altera emendatior. ... (with:) VESLING, J.

      De Plantis Aegyptiis observationes et notae ad prosperum Alpinum, cum additamento aliarum eiusdem regionis. Padua, P. 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. Opobalsami veteribus cogniti vindiciae & Paraeneses Ad rem herbariam... Padua, P. Frambotti, 1644 (each with a separately printed title). pp. (24), 108. Contemporary vellum. 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.

        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.'".

      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.

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.

Original hand-colored copper-engraved map (plate mark measures 22 by 19 inches); matted and framed, entire piece measures 28 by 31 inches. $3000.Lovely 1638 impression of one of the earliest, largest, and most attractive maps to focus on South America, beautifully engraved and hand-colored with numerous embellishments of native people and animals, ships and sea monsters.This is an important, early, and decorative map of the South American continent. The coastlines are well detailed but the interior is more speculative: several rivers (including the Amazon and Paraguay) have their source in the Lago de los Xarayes and the mythical Lake Parime dominates the interior of Guyana. The map is richly embellished with ships and sea monsters in the oceans and vignettes of villages and animals on the continent. The large title cartouche features native and indigenous animals. Henricus Hondius was the son of renowned cartographer and mapseller Jodocus Hondius. By 1621 Henricus had established his own business, and in 1623 when he published the fifth edition of the Mercator-Hondius Atlas. Sometime around 1628 Jan Janssonius joined the business, and soon the Janssonius name came to predominate the maps produced, until by 1646 Henricusâ&#128;&#153; name disappears from published maps and atlases. This map originally came from a Latin edition of the Atlas, printed 1638-41. Latin text on verso. Van der Krogt, P. Koemanâ&#128;&#153;s Atlantes Neederlandici, I:9800.

      Oxford: "printed [by Robert Young, Edinburgh, 1635?, by Miles Flesher, London, 1638, and by Leonard Lichfield and William Turner, Oxford] for Henry Cripps". 1638. "The last lifetime edition containing Burton's final text. Folio, pp. [12], 78, [2], 97, 96-140, [4], 141-218, [4], 219-262, 259-723, [11]; woodcut initials; inserted engraved title page (outside the collation) neatly reinforced on the blank verso, half-title also with fore-edge reinforced; first half of the text block wrinkled, small worm tracks in the first 25 leaves, worm tracks also from leaves X2 to Z4, 2L3 to 2P4, and 2T1 to 2V4; F3 of the second part with corner torn with slight loss to headline and pagination, 3R2 also with corner torn but without loss of letters, leaves 4T2 and 4T3 browned; 19th-century half calf over marbled boards; light wear; very good.

Leaf 2L1, intended to be cancelled, is retained in many copies, as it is here, but with a knife slice through the text (no loss). Lowndes notes that this was ""a work once almost forgotten, but which owed it revival to the inordinate praise of Dr. Johnson, who observed that it 'was the only book that ever took him out of bed two hours sooner than he wished to rise.' Printing and the Mind of Man 120 (citing the first edition of 1621): ""The Anatomy ... was one of the most popular books of the 17th century. All the learning of the age as well as its humor - and its pedantry - are here. It has something in common with Brant's Ship of Fools, Erasmus's Praise of Folly, and More's Utopia, with Rabelais and Montaigne, and like all these it exercised a considerable influence on the thought of the time.. Dr. Johnson deeply admired it, and Charles Lamb's often and strongly expressed devotion served to rescue the Anatomy from a brief period of oblivion; its admirers will continue to read and re-read it."" DNB says it is ""one of the most famous books in literature."" Madan I, p. 204; STC 4163."

        Dissertationes de origine ac progressu idololatriae et superstitionum: De vera ac falsa prophetia; uti et de divinationibus idololatricis judaeorum.

      First edition: History and rationalist refutation of idolatry, including divination, demonology, astrology, exorcism, sorcery, prophecy, etc. -- in Judaism as well as in Zoroastrianism and pagan religions. Born in Haarlem, van Dale (a.k.a. Anton van Dalen, 1638-1708) was a physician, Mennonite preacher, and classicist; his efforts to dismiss the influence of the Devil and indeed the existence of virtually all things miraculous, angelic, or supernatural led to the placing of this work (along with his treatise discrediting the ancient oracles) on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum in 1737. This volume is also of interest typographically; some of the Greek, Syriac, and Arabic types subsequently used in productions by Hendrik Wetstein and others make their first appearances here. The text is predominantly in Latin, with quotations in Hebrew and the above languages. The title-page is printed in black and red. Provenance: Front pastedown with inked inscriptions of the Rev. A.W. Miller of Charlotte, N.C., dated 1871, and of H. Ader of Assumption Hills, dated [18]92; front free endpaper with early inked inscription of Henry Joseph Thomas Drury. Drury was a master at Harrow School (where he taught Byron), and an original member of the Roxburghe Club. His inscription notes the book's passage from the Bibliotheca Heathiana "thro' Dr. Raine's hands, and Cuthell's to mine"; Drury's mother was Louisa Heath, daughter of the great collector Benjamin Heath, but most of Heath's library had originally gone either to his two sons or to auction following the death of his wife.

        Histoire de la navigation de Iean Hugues de Linschot Hollandois: aux Indes Orientales contenant diverses descriptions des lieux jusques à present descouverts par les Portugais: observations des coustumes & singularitez de delà, & autres declarations

      Amsterdam: Evert Cloppenburgh, 1638. 3 parts in one volume, folio. (12 3/8 x 7 7/8 inches). Three letterpress titles [two within elaborate engraved surrounds, the third with engraved vignette], engraved portrait of Linschoten on verso of index leaf, 42 engraved maps, plates and views (including 6 folding maps and 36 engraved plates and views by Johann and Baptiste ven Doetecom after Linschoten [5 of the latter folding, 31 double-page]). (Light worming to lower inner corner, just affecting the image area of one map). Early 18th-century calf, expertly rebacked to style with the spine in seven compartments with raised bands, red morocco lettering-piece in the second the others with repeat decoration in gilt made up from various small tools, modern dark blue morocco-backed cloth, spine lettered in gilt Provenance: La Trémoille, prince de Talmont (1652-1733, arms stamped on flyleaf); armorial stamp of Serrant (on flyleaf and first two title margins) An exceptionally fine copy of this important and influential work. In terms of the condition of the contents, this copy is probably the finest that we have ever examined. It is to be preferred over the earlier English edition in that it contains 42 maps and plates as against the English edition's 12. The Wardington catalogue explains why copies of Linschoten's works are so difficult to find in even reasonable condition: they were "held in such high esteem that for nearly a century a copy was given to each ship proceeding to India for use as a guide to the sailing directions. The fact that most copies were in continual use is no doubt the reason that so few copies - in any language - remain extant in anything approaching good condition." This third edition in French of this famous work, with commentaries by B. Paludanus, was reprinted from the second edition in French of 1619. The second and third parts are titled: Le Grand Routier de Mer... Continant une instruction des routes & cours qu'il convient tenir en la Navigation des Indes Orientales, & au voyage de la coste du Bresil, des Antilles, & du Cap de Lopo Gonsalves and Description de l'Amerique & des parties d'icelle, comme de la Nouvelle France, Floride, des Antilles, Iucaya, Cuba, Jamaica, &c. The maps include van Langren's maps of the East Indies and South America (including the Caribbean and Florida), and the double-hemispherical World map of Plancius dated 1594 (Shirley 187). Linschoten, a Dutchman born in Delft in 1562/3, was in Goa between 1583 and 1589, and with Willem Barents on his second voyage to the Kara Sea in 1594-1595. He had an "avaricious thirst for knowledge which enabled him to get detailed information of land and sea as far afield as the Spice Islands and China" (Boies Penrose).This practical experience all lent authenticity to the present work, first published in Dutch (Amsterdam, 1595-1596), and it remains one of the most important of all travel books. It was the most comprehensive account of the East and West Indies available at the beginning of the 17th century. As well as including important travel accounts taken from contemporary Portuguese, Dutch and Spanish sources, it is the first work to include precise sailing instructions for the Indies and according to Church (and other authorities) 'it was given to each ship sailing from Holland to India.' The third part gives an excellent account of America. An important work that served not only as a valuable record but also as a catalyst for change in the balance of power amongst European trading nations in the east: "the navigator's vade mecum for the Eastern seas" (Penrose). When Linschoten returned from Goa to his home in the Netherlands, he did so at a time when the people of northern Europe and particularly his countrymen were especially interested in what he had to report concerning the trading activities of the Portuguese in the East. His most important and far-reaching observations concerned the gradual decline of Portuguese power in the East and her ability to protect her trade routes and monopolies. This, together with the trading possibilities he detailed, encouraged a series of Dutch, French and English fleets to set sail for the Spice Islands and beyond to China and Japan. European Americana 638/67; JCB (3) II:271; Palau 138584; Sabin 41373; Tiele 686-88.

      1638. Selden on the Jewish Laws of Inheritance Selden, John [1584-1654]. De Successionbus ad Leges Ebraeorum in Bona Defunctorum, Liber Singularis: In Pontificatum, Libri Duo. Leiden: Ex Officina Elseviriorum, 1638. [lx], 428 [i.e. 528] pp. 12mo. (3" x 5"). Contemporary vellum, hand-lettered title to spine, speckled edges. Light soiling, spine ends bumped, corners bumped and lightly worn. Title page, with woodcut Elzevier Solitary Man, printed in red and black, device, woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces and decorated initials. Some toning to text, minor worming to margins in a few places, light soiling to title page. An appealing copy. * Third edition, augmented and corrected. Text in Latin, some passages in Hebrew. Selden was the first great English jurists to study Jewish law seriously. As noted by the Dictionary of National Biography, Selden's "familiarity with rabbinical literature was such as has been acquired by few non-Israelite scholars; and many details of oriental civilization and antiquities were certainly brought to the knowledge of Europeans for the first time in them." First published in 1631, De Successionibus is a notable exposition of the rabbinical laws of inheritance and succession and laws concerning rabbis. It went through several editions into the eighteenth century. Dictionary of National Biography XVII:1157. Willems, Les Elzevier: Histoire et Annales Typographiques 472.

Born in Chuquisaca (1584), Antonio de la Calancha was an Augustinian religious man who died in Lima (1654). Our copy has the rare historiated frontispiece and the extraordinary plate representing the martyrdom of Father Diego Ortiz in Vilcabamba, engraved by Pierre de Jode. Few complete copies have survived. Leclerc's copy did not have the engraving. One of the great American chronicles.
