        Americae Pars Meridionalis

      1638 - (SOUTH AMERICA) HONDIUS, Henricus. Americae Pars Meridionalis. Amsterdam: Henricus Hondius, [1638]. 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 Henricus’ 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. Koeman’s Atlantes Neederlandici, I:9800. Phillips, Maps of America, 793. Adonias, A Cartografia da Regiao Amazonica, I: 185-86. Archival tape reinforcement on verso along edges. Light age toning, a few minor spots of foxing, original coloring fine. An extremely good copy of this scarce map.

Leuschner, qui a publié en 1757, à Leipsic, une dissertation 'Die Valentis Acidalii vita, moribus et scriptis', tàche d'y prouver qu'Acidalius n'aurait été que l'éditeur du jeu d'esprit qui lui a été attribué, et qui fit sonner le tocsin contre lui par tous les théologiens d'Allemagne"). - "C'est un jeu d'esprit satirique, dirigé contre les Sociniens et composé probablement en Pologne" (Graesse II, 409, Anm.) - "Traite badin, dirigé contre les theologiens qui, dans leurs gloses, abusent des citations de la Bible.

        "The anatomy of melancholy. What it is, with all the kinds, causes, symptomes, prognosticks, and severall cures of it ... The fift[h] edition, corrected and augmented by the author"

      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. The two leaves of Synopsis to the First Partition, ordinarily bound after K4 is bound in this copy prior to A1. 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.

        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.

        CORONICA MORALIZADA DEL ORDEN DE SAN AUGUSTIN EN EL PERU, CON SUCESOS EGENPLARES VISTOS EN ESTA MONARQUIA

      Barcelona, 1638. Folio. Contemporary vellum, calf spine with leather label. Engraved titlepage trimmed and mounted; letterpress titlepage heavily worn and repaired in similar fashion. Moderate to heavy toning, dampstaining, and soiling. Last few leaves heavily wormed, affecting some text. Small tear to edge of plate; trimmed closely and mounted. About good. First edition of this Peruvian Chronicle, one of the rarest referring to the history of Peru. It deals with the creation of the different churches and religious houses in Peru, but it also describes meticulously the most important historical events up to 1638. 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.

        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. It comprises short smart essays in praise of swimming, laughing, fleas, elephants, donkeys, ants, cows, lice, flies, blindness, malaria and gout. Among the authors are Melanchton, Willibald Pirckheimer, Celio Calcagnini, Marco Antonio Maioraggio, Jean Passerat and again Lipsius, Hensius and Scaliger. The voluminous ms binder’s waste is a potential feast for scholars. 1) Brunet I, 703; Graesse, I, 312; Gay, I, 103 (‘recueil estimé et peu commun’); Willems, 961 (‘le volume des Amores est bien execute, et les beaux exemplaires son assez recherchés .

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).

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.

After the assassination of King Henry IV, Sully retired to his castle to write his memoirs of 1612 to 1617 which were established to glorify the action of the king; these memories remain a great source for the history of time. It was followed by two other volumes published posthumously in 1662, it is noted on the first flyleaf in pencil. Certainly This book comes from the library of Bishop Simony and was given to him by Madame de Sully.

Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, rare. Il existerait deux impressions de l'édition originale : l'une avec le mot "soldats" sur le titre, écrit avec un s minuscule, le verso étant blanc, et l'autre avec la lettre S majuscule, et portant au verso deux sonnets "Fortune à la Vertu" et Vertu à la Fortune". 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. Cependant, certains penchent pour reconnaître dans cette seconde version une contrefaçon et non une originale de seconde émission ; on ne connaîtrait par ailleurs que 2 ou 3 exemplaires de la rarissime véritable édition originale imprimée en privé au château de Sully par un imprimeur d'Angers. Grande vignette de titre rehaussée de vert et rouge sur les deux pages de titre figurant les trois vertus (foi, vertu, charité) couronnées d'amarante. Reliure en plein veau blond d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné de 6 fleurons. Double filet d'encadrement sur les plats.Coiffe de queue arrachée. Mors supérieur fendu en tête et ouvert en queue. 2 manque sur le plat supérieur dû à des vers. 2 coins dénudés. Taches diverses. Exemplaire frais. Après l'assassinat du roi henry IV, Sully se retira dans son château afin de rédiger ses mémoires de 1612 à 1617 qui furent établies en vue de glorifier l'action du roi ; ces mémoires demeurent une grande source pour l'histoire du temps. 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. Mgr de S. étant le précepteur du jeune Maximilien de Sully, mort très jeune et dernier du nom.

        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).
