        De Successionibus ad Leges Ebraeorum in Bona Defunctorum, Liber...

      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.

        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, 1638. Folio. Early 18th-century calf, expertly rebacked to style with gilt spine with raised bands, red morocco label. Minor worming in lower inner corner, just affecting the image area of one map. Very good. In a dark blue morocco backed cloth case, spine gilt. Provenance: La Trémoille, prince de Talmont (1652-1733, arms stamped on fly leaf); armorial stamp of Serrant (on fly leaf and first two title margins). In a half morocco clamshell case, spine gilt. Third edition in French of this famous work, with commentaries by B. Paludanus, reprinted from the edition 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 Haarlem in 1563, was in Goa between 1583 and 1589 as a clerk to the Portuguese Archbishop, and with Willem Barents on his second voyage to the Kara Sea in 1594-95. 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" (Penrose). This practical experience all lent authenticity to the present work, first published in Dutch (Amsterdam, 1595-96), 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.

        Grammatica Arabica; cum varia praxios materia, cujus elenchum versa dabit pagella.Leiden, Johannes Maire, 1656. 2 parts in 1 volume. 4to. Mid 19th-century half tan calf, gold- and blind-tooled spine.

      Schnurrer 81 & 220; Smitskamp, Philologia orientalis 72; STCN (7 copies). Third edition, expanded and edited by Jacobus Golius, of Erpenius's classic Arabic grammar. The present edition is augmented with an Arabic chrestomathy that Fabricius had published in 1638. Erpenius (1584-1624) revolutionized Arabic scholarship in Europe and made the Netherlands the most important European centre of Arabic studies before he died of the plague in 1624. His grammar remained the standard work in the field for two centuries. With the owner's inscription on a free endleaf, and a meticulously lettered note on p. 42 of the Lockman fabels. Some small defects, but otherwise in very good condition, with only a small marginal tear repaired and an occasional minor and mostly marginal spot or stain. Binding with a restoration at the head and foot of the spine but otherwise good, with slight wear at the hinges and extremities. The best edition of a classic Arabic grammar.

        De Animalibus Insectis. Libri septem.

      - Bononiae, apud C. Ferronium, 1638. Folio (352 x 223mm). pp. (14), 767, (1), (44), with engraved title and about 700 woodcuts. Contemporary vellum, spine in 7 compartments (head of spine worn). Due to the binder's mistake the title-page of Aldrovandi's work on fishes instead of the one on insects is bound in. The first edition was published in 1602. 'The first work of literature dealing with insects, thus finally establishing entomology, and especially systematic entomology as a science' (Smith, R.F. History of Entomology, p. 85). Aldrovandi's complete natural history works consist of 11 works, he spent 45 years amassing the material. The volumes on birds and the present volume on insects were completed by himself, the others by his pupils. The woodcuts of the insects are of great beauty and accuracy. "Although Aldrovandi is not identified with any revolutionary discoveries, his work as a teacher and as the author of volumes that constitute an irreplaceable cultural patrimony earns him a place among the fathers of modern science" (D.S.B. I, p. 110).Nissen ZBI, 67. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Amores (with) Dissertationum ludicrarum at amoenitatum scriptores varii

      Franciscus Hegerus and Franciscus Hackius, Leiden 1638 - STUFFED WITH MANUSCRIPT REMAINS 8vo, two volumes in one: 1): FIRST EDITION. pp. [12], 518, [2]; 2): pp. 7, [1], 567, [1], final gathering Aa8 incorrectly bound after initial table of contents. Predominantly Roman letter, little Italic and Greek; decorated initials and head- and tail-pieces, printer’s device on title 1 (a little dusty), detailed full-page engraved portrait of Baudius at f. ***viv, engraved title 2; occasional spot to margins. A very good copy in contemporary plain vellum; a bit worn, front cover crudely repaired after partial removal of central vellum, overs boards made from multiple ll. of earlier ms; all edges blue; contemporary owner’s inscription to title 1) ‘Con. Ernest Ruppelius Arzb.’; contemporary annotation to verso of rear endpaper. A very amusing collection of Neo-latin poetry and essays published by the main competitors of the Elzevier press. The first work is the editio princeps (variant B of the imprint) of a sammlung of love writings, mainly by Domenicus Baudius. Baudius (1561-1613), probably a nickname for Dominique Baudier, was a prominent poet, historian and professor at the University of Leiden. Graduate in law in 1585, he received encouragement from Joseph Justus Scaliger and De Thou to engage in Latin poetry and later befriended Philip Sidney, Daniel Heinsius and Hugo Grotius. He started teaching at the University of Leiden in 1602, first as professor of rhetoric and then of history. For this reason, he was entrusted with the composition of a chronicle of the Dutch war between 1609 and 1611. His Amores were edited posthumously by Peter Schrijver (1576-1660), a younger colleague of his in Leiden as well as a Neo-Latin poet and historian in his own right. They gather several of Baudius’s letters and verses recounting his erotic often-failing adventures, along with a great number of other pieces related to love and marriage by both his erudite friends (Hensius, Grotius, Schrijver, Scaliger and Salmasius) and earlier humanists such as Erasmus, Lelio Capilupi, Giovanni Carga and even Thomas More with his Qualis uxoria deligenda. Schrijver took the opportunity to include some annotations by himself, Salmasius, Pithou and Lipsius about the famous anonymous poem of late antiquity Pervigilium Veneris. This edition, printed by George Vander Marse, was published jointly in Leiden by Hagerus & Hackius and in Amsterdam by Louis Elzevier. The other half of the volume is taken up with the second edition of a collection of scholarly divertissements, bearing a new title in respect of the princeps issued in 1623 as Argumentorum ludicrorum scriptores.

        Rudimenta linguae Arabicae. Accedunt eiusdem praxis grammatica; & consilium de studio Arabico feliciter instituendo.

      Paris, [Vitray], 1638. - Large 8vo. (16), 184, (48) pp. Title printed in red and black with woodcut vignette in red and black. Contemp. limp vellum. "A scholar’s issue, with 5 prefatory leaves" (Smitskamp): the first of three versions distinguished by Smitskamp of the third edition of the "Rudimenta". As the earlier editions (first: 1620; second, posthumously: 1628), this is printed in the beautiful Arabic type of Savary de Brèves. Erpenius (1584-1624), professor of oriental languages at Leiden, "is one of the men whom the study of oriental languages owes its resurrection [.] He set up his own printing shop with Hebrew, Arabic, Syrian, Ethiopian, and Turkish type" (cf. ADB). Until well into the 19th century his works, published in numerous editions, remained the foundation of Arabic language teaching in the west. - Old ownership of Bernard Marin Bottelko on title and final page (the latter repaired by a former owner).

        Specimen Arabicum quo exhibentur aliquot scripta Arabica partim in prosa, partim ligata oratione composita. Jam primum in Germania edita, versione Latina donata, analysi grammatica expedita, notisque necessariis illustrata. Quibus accessit judicium de soluto dicendi genere Arabum proprio. Ut et coronis de poesi Arabica hactenus a nemine in Germania tradita. Adjectus in fine est index Latinus verborum, nominum et particularum locupletissimus, qui instar lexici esse potest.

      Rostock, heirs of Johann Richel, 1638.. 4to. (12), 235, (1) pp. Contemp. vellum.. First edition, second issue (the imprint of the first issue is dated 1637). This anthology of Arabic literature includes the first of the maqama ("sessions") of al-Hariri (d. 1122), the first published text of al-Hariri in Europe. It also contains extracts from Abu al-Ala' al-Ma'arri and Ibn al-Farid and an essay on Arabic poetry based on Golius's lectures. Johann Fabricius (1608-53) was born in Danzig and lived in Rostock where he taught philosophy. He was a pupil of the well-known professor of Arabic Jacob Golius, who encouraged him to publish the present work. As Fabricius states in the preface, the "Specimen" had already been finished six years before, but its publication was delayed due to the difficulty in obtaining Arabic types. Eventually the Arabic types, imitations of those used by Erpenius, were made in Copenhagen. - Bound in between the preliminaries and the text proper of this copy is an apparently unrecorded two-leaf printing containing a poem in Arabic by Fabricius, bearing a Latin dedication to Johann Raue, a philologist and teacher at Rostock, in honour of his appointment as professor of eloquence there on 14 February 1637. The poem offers thanks to God for having preserved the fabric of the university from destruction during the Thirty Years' War. - First few leaves slightly browned due to paper; tear in leaf R4 repaired without loss. From the library of the classical scholar and educator Friedrich Carl Rumpf (1772-1824) with his ms. ownership to front flyleaf, stricken out and replaced with the ownership of Heinrich Lade (possibly the versatile German banker, horticulturalist, and amateur astronomer of that name, 1817-1904). - VD 17, 23:290162A.

"Our copy belongs to the second version. The first edition also includes the feature to include French and Latin text of the Parallel Caesar and Henry the Great printed in Roman characters . (p.470 to 488 of Volume I), which distinguishes it from counterfeiting and subsequent editions where it is printed in italics However, some are inclined to recognize in this second version and not a counterfeit original second issue; we would know also that 2 or 3 copies of the rare true first edition printed privately at the Chateau de Sully by a printer of Angers.

Notre exemplaire appartient à la seconde version. L'édition originale porte également la particularité d'inclure le texte français et latin des Parallèles de César et de Henry le Grand imprimé en caractères romains (p.470 à 488 du tome I), ce qui la distingue de la contrefaçon et des éditions suivantes où il est imprimé en caractères italiques.

Elle furent suivies par deux autres volumes publiés de manière posthume en 1662. Il est noté sur la premiere page de garde au crayon gris : Ce livre provient certes de la bibliothèque de Mgr Simony et lui a été donné par Madame de Sully.

        A Survey of History: Or, A Nursery for Gentry. Contrived and Comprized in an Intermixt Discourse upon Historicall and Poetical Relations

      Square 8vo. London: By J. Okes for Jasper Emery at the Eagle and Child in Pauls Church yard next Watlin Street, 1638. Square 8vo, modern full blind-ruled morocco, spine gilt lettered between raised bands, a.e.g. [xxviii], 413, [1(Errata)] pp.; pp. 30-31 & 202-203 misnumbered. Extra engraved title-page by William Marshall, depicting the author surrounded by vignettes of Herodotus, Livy, Thucydides, & Tacitus. Upper margins of first four leaves reinforced with old paper, sidenotes of leaves B1 & B3 slightly shaved; overall a clean, surprisingly fresh copy in a somewhat incongruous but handsome binding. Second Edition, more than doubled from its original version as The Schollers Medley, published in 1614. Braithwaite, who is today best known for his doggerel poem Drunken Barnaby's Four Journeys..., here anatomizes the various sorts of histories--including fictional or 'poetical' ones--and elaborates on their moral and educational qualities. He categorizes histories as "Divine, Discursive, Morall, Physick, or Mixt"; and in the course of analyzing them he passes on many fascinating anecdotes on both antiquity and his own times. There are references to Machiavelli, Orlando Furioso, and Don Quixote, as well as to many highly obscure writers and books. In his omniverous curiosity , digressive erudition, and idiosyncratic style Braithwaite (1588-1673) is comparable to his celebrated contemporaries Sir Thomas Browne (1605-1682) and Robert Burton (1577-1640).

        Relacion de la Vitoria sue alcanzaron las armas Catolicas en la Baia de Todos Santos, contra Olandeses, sue fueron a sitar aquella Plaza, en 14 de Junio de 1638. Siendo Governador del Estado del Brasil Pedro de Silva

      1638 - Dutch struggle for Brazil. Official account of the Dutch raid of Bahia, with a combined force of French soldiers, and natives. 1638. Madrid. 1638. Francisco Martinez. In folio (288 mm x 210 mm). 6 ff. Unbound. Some light foxing, wide margins, strong impression, excellent example. First edition. A rare and first-hand source of information on the events of the 14 June, 1638, when a combined force of Dutch, French, and recruited natives attacked the Spanish/Portuguese city of Bahia. Dutch interest in Brazil -and particularly Bahia- was cause of several incursions, as it stood as the centre of the economic power in Portuguese Brazil. The imprint starts by condemning the French and the Dutch for their greed and obstination, in joining forces with Heretics and Turks, to conquer Spanish overseas possessions. Silva, aware of Dutch presence nearby, expected the pending attack on Bahia, which was part of a larger group of actions beginning on May; Count Bagnuoli, appointed by Governor Pedro de Silva, victoriously rejected the attack. “Official account of the Dutch and French Expedition of 1,600 men against the Spanish in Bahia, in which the Spanish, under the governor Don Pedro de Silva were successful, the Dutch being driven off. The Dutch had made the River S. Francisco, midway between Bahia and Pernambuco, their base this expedition being undertaken to recapture the city” (Maggs, 211, 1926). “The Dutch had held Pernambuco and Bahia, but having lost the latter organized this expedition of 1,600 men for its recapture. It was made from their base on the River S. Francisca” (Lathrop Harper, 166-721, 1943). Exceedingly rare, no copy has sold at auction since 1966. “This Relacion is very rare and frequently quoted” (Borba de Moraes). Only one copy in public institutions in Spain of this edition, and one of the Valencia edition (Salva, 3374, only 44 ff.]. Borba de Moraes, 721 (reproduced on pp. 722). Medina, BHA, 983.

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.

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.

        Antitheses fidei, ventilabuntur in conventu S. Petri Montis Aurei fratrum Minorum S.P. Francisci reformat[orum].

      Rome, Congreg. de Propaganda Fide, 1638. - 4to (227 x 163 mm). 1 bl. f., 66 pp. (counted as 43; numerous errors in pagination; some parts included in two variants). With woodcut title vignette. Contemp. limp vellum with ms. title to spine. Very rare polemical work, printed throughout in Arabic and Latin, that aims to compare and contrast Christian and Muslim scripture and doctrines. Dedicated to Cardinal Barberini. The editor Dominicus (1585-1670) taught Arabic at the Congregatio de Propaganda Fide since 1636 and collaborated on their Bible project. His magnum opus, one of the first literal Quran translations, was not rediscovered and published until 1883. In 1636 he published a Arabic grammar (the first publication of the Congregatio de Propaganda Fide press to use Arabic type); in 1639 he would produce a dictionary of vernacular Arabic. Four years in the Middle East had convinced him that a missionary must before everything else know the vernacular language (cf. Fück, p. 78). The present work was considered lost quite recently by Antonio García Masegosa in his study "Germán de Silesia, Interpretatio Alcorani Litteralis, Parte I: La traducción latina" (Madrid, 2009): "Por la misma época, publicó un tratado religioso en árabe y en latín titulado Antitheses fidei, que se encuentra perdido en la actualidad, o que al menos no ha podido ser localizado para este trabajo" (p. 14). - Marked brownstaining throughout with waterstain to upper corner. Still an appealing copy. Schnurrer 248. Encyclopaedia of the Qur'an IV, 237. OCLC 491545005, 54509800.

      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.

        Bozza autografa di importante documento dat. 25 Maggio 1638 (destinato alle stampe) del Marchese di Leganes, Governatore di Milano dal 1635 al 1641, relativo alla guerra contro i Francesi per il predominio sull'Italia settentrionale, con particolari riferimenti alla situazione del Ducato di Savoia, che è minacciato dalle truppe francesi che hanno occupato proditoriamente alcune importanti piazzeforti. Riportiamo un passo a titolo di esempio: "Ben si raccorderanno tutti li suditi e naturali delle Provincie di Piemonte e Savoia che dopo la pace di Ratisbona dell'anno 1630 essequita per li trattati di Cherasco l'anno 1631, nel quale s'obligò il Re di Francia di cavare la sua soldatescha e gente dalle piazze, che occupava nel Piemonte senza riguardo di commettere una cosà chiara et evidente contravventione alla d.a pace, obligò con minacce e violenza il Sig. Duca Vittorio Amadeo a consignarle la Piazza di Pinarolo, soto vari pretesti di vendite e cambii con altre Piazze, che non hanno havuto alcun effetto, per non esserci mai stata altra intentione che di dare colore ad una tanta ingiustitia...". "Pertanto volendo Sua Maestà continuar questa Real protettione, che sempre ha tenuto della Casa di Savoia, e conoscendo che humanamente non c'è altro rimedio per liberare li suoi Prencipi, et sudditi dalla lagrimevole oppressione nella qual si trovano, che occupar Piazze e posti nel Piemonte non con fine che habbino da restare a Sua Maestà Cattolica, ma ben s' da scaciare da questa Provincia li Francesi...". Fascicolo costituito da dodici pp. in - 4.

        Traite du Jardinage

      1638. THE BEGINNING OF GARDEN DESIGN AS AN ART BOYCEAU, Jacques. Traite du Jardinage, selon les raisons de la nature et de l'art. Divise en trois livres. Ensemble divers desseins de Parterres, Pelouzes, Bosquets et autres ornements servans à l'embellissement des Jardins. [8], 87, [1] pp. Illustrated with an engraved title-page by Van Lochom, engraved portrait of Boyceau after De Vris, 61 plates comprising a total of 79 copper-engraved subjects printed on 36 single-page engraved plates (including one with 2 engravings on the page), 24 double-page engraved plates, and 1 quadruple folding engraved plate, plus numerous engraved head- and tailpieces and large engraved initials, and one half-page engraving depicting winds. Plus there are 9 extra engravings of garden plans published by Bonnart bound in at the rear. Folio, 384 x 273 mm, bound in eighteenth-century French speckled calf, gilt-tooled compartments on spine, red morocco title-label. Paris: Michel Van Lochom, 1638. |~||~||~||~||~||~| First Edition of the first treatise devoted primarily to the pleasure garden. Boyceau offered a new aesthetic approach to garden design and in so doing elevated the metier of garden design into an art. The Traite du Jardinage, published posthumously by his nephew Jacques de Nemours, determined the character of the French seventeenth- and eighteenth-century formal garden that was brought to its climax by André Le Nôtre a generation later. The creative significance of Boyceau's book in relation to the history of European garden design cannot be overestimated, as there is no comparable basic statement of principles either for the Italian or English garden, and therefore it remains one of the single most influential works on the art of garden design in Europe. Jacques Boyceau, Sieur de la Barauderie (ca. 1565-ca. 1635), was appointed Intendent des jardins du roi in 1602, and he continued to hold his appointment under Louis XIII after the assassination of Henri IV (in 1610), at which time he was recognized as an authority on garden planning. From the Traité (Privilege, fol. a3v) we know that Boyceau was involved with the gardens at Fontainebleau, although no extant record of his work there exists. The illustrations in the Traité include parterres executed to his designs for the gardens of Marie de Médici at the Luxembourg Palace, the "new" château commissioned by Louis XIII at Versailles, the château-neuf at St. Germain-en-Laye, the Louvre, and the Tuileries. "[Boyceau] planned the new parterres for the Tuileries gardens and his beautiful designs greatly excited the admiration of the next generation... [he] is regarded as the precursor of the great development of French gardening" (Gothein, A History of Garden Art). In general Boyceau's designs are strikingly original; they differ significantly from those of his predecessors (cf. Serlio's Architettura Book IV, Du Cerceau's Plus excellents bastiments, and to a lesser extent Claude Mollet's designs for the Tuileries and St. Germain-en-Laye as depicted in Olivier de Serres' Theatre d'agriculture). Just as Boyceau owed little to his precursors or contemporaries, some of his designs (particularly those of parterres) clearly foreshadow the future, and thus provide an obvious precedent for Le Nôtre and his successors, not only on the Continent but in England as well. Kenneth Woodbridge writes: "[Boyceau's] designs for parterres de broderie in the Traité du Jardinage are the earliest representations of garden decoration in this style, for which reason he has been credited with its invention... Boyceau's book was the first French text to be devoted to pleasure-gardens and their ornament, stressing the importance of variety, not only in the plan and in relief but in the use of sites where there are differences of level" (Oxford Companion to Gardens). The collation of Boyceau's Traite du Jardinage is complex in the extreme; inconsistencies exist among nearly every bibliography. We have collated our copy against the 1997 Nördlingen facsimile. The introduction to the Nördlingen facsimile declares that no two copies are exactly alike; the engraved plates were never numbered, and there is no reference in the text to particular plates. We have determined that: the present copy contains two single-page plates that are not present in the Nördlingen facsimile, and there are two plates in the facsimile not in our copy. The quadruple plate repaired, some occasional marginal waterstaining, but overall in good condition. The only copy listed at auction by ABPC CD-ROM is the seriously defective John Evelyn copy (44 double page plates, sold in 1977 to Weinreb of London). PROVENANCE: Bibliotheca de Bresse with ex-libris. Château de Pierre-de-Bresse is in the Bourgogne region of eastern France. Ownership traces back to 1092, however, it was Jacques de Thyard, Marquis de Bissy (1648-1744) who was likely the first owner to engage in construction of the gardens surrounding this historic Chateau under the influence of Boyceau's Traite du Jardinage. Ernest de Ganay, Bibliographie de l'art des Jardins 17 (now Bibliothèque nationale, 43 planches). Guilmard 65 (26 doubles and 36 simples). Berlin Katalog 3442 (59 plates). Destailleur 542 (63 plates). Pouillon 19 (62 plates). Grosseuvre (64 plates, of which 26 doubles).

        Panegyrique de Trajan

      First edition of this translation of Pintail Ménardière. a thumbnail title to the effigy of the emperor (repeated after the preface). Velin full time. Smooth back with respect to red feather dimmed. Seam. This panegyric, we announced the first page of text, was given by Pliny the second before the senate, in the presence of the emperor, while Pliny was Consul. In fact, the speech by Pliny was much shorter than the latter and it was written to thank the emperor for having chosen as consul, it was only later that Pliny reshuffled his text fleshing historically and gave him this title. Some think that Trajan and discipline were close upon accession to power of Emperor. A preface by translator. Chez Antoine de Sommaville A Paris 1638 In 4 (16,5x22,5cm) (28) 359pp. relié
