        Manifeste du tres-haut et serenissime Prince Charles Louys Comte Palatin du Rhin [.]. adressé a sa Majesté Imperiale, & à tous les Rois, Electeurs, Princes & Estats tant au dedans que dehors l'Empire.

      O. O. u. Dr., 1638. - (4) Bll. (d. l. w.), 192 SS. Flexibler Pergamentband der Zeit mit hs. Rückenschildchen. 4to. Offenbar zweiter Druck der ersten französischen Ausgabe dieser Streitschrift, mit der mitten im Dreißigjährigen Krieg die Kurwürde im Namen des elfjährigen Pfalzgrafen Karl Ludwig verteidigt wird.

Zuvor 1638 auf Deutsch erschienen unter dem Titel: "Manifest undt Außschreiben des [.] Herrn Carl-Ludwig Pfaltzgraven bey Rhein [.] an die Römische Keyserliche Mayestät, und an alle Christliche Könige, Chur:Fürsten und Stände in- und ausserhalb des Reichs, betreffent seiner churfürstl. durchl.

        Virginiae Item et Floridae Americae Provinciarum, nova Descriptio.

      [Amsterdam]: [Jodocus Hondius/Joannes Janssonius], [1636 or 1638]. - Single sheet, (19 ½ x 22 ¾ inches). Fine engraved map with original hand color in full, with a large cartouche depicting Indian villages and an elaborate compass rose (one or two marginal spots and creases). Later Latin edition, first published in 1606. With signature mark "Ssss" on the verso, indicating a publication date of either 1636 or 1638 according to Koemann. "The most important type map of the region until the Ogilby-Moxon 'Discription of Carolina' ca. 1672; and its influence, both direct and indirect, extends into the middle of the eighteenth century" (Cumming, Southeast, 26). "It is a composite largely of John White's Virginia and Jacques le Moyne's Florida as interpreted by Theodore de Bry in 1590 and 1591, respectively. 'Chesepioock Sinus' representing Chesapeake Bay is still shown in its White delineation. At the end of this year, 1606, a party of Englishmen left England to begin arguably the most important colonization of North America in this very bay, at Jamestown. Within just a few years the entire region would be completely revised cartographically. The area south towards 'C.S.Romano Hispanis' is entirely drawn from White. It is, however, given too much latitude, extending as fa as 32 ½ °, some 2° too far. 'S.Augustine,' however, is shown at the correct latitude. The combined effect is a compacted coastline for the present day States of Georgia and South Carolina. "The area of French 'Floridae' originally comes from de Bry's map 'Floridae Americae Provinciae' of 1591. Here a new interpretation of the cartography had made this map notable; however, the author has noted that it actually first appeared on the wall map of America by Cornelis Claesz, c. 1602. The new rendition of le Moyne's geography is caused by the great lake which is moved from central Florida north so that the 'R.de May' (St. John's River) now flows in a south-easterly direction. It was probably encouraged by the depiction on a number of maps of a similarly flowing large R.Secco like that on the 'FLORIDA et APALCHE,' by Cornelis Wytfliet of 1597. Its influence was considerable. Taken up by Hondius, this error was popularized by the major success of his atlas and lasted for some seventy years. According to Cumming some placenames appear from other sources, namely that of Jean Ribaut. In the 'Apalatcy' Mountains reference are made to the presence of both gold and silver. The map is embellished with various game including a wild turkey. Examples of Indian villages in Florida and Virginia appear in cartouches either side of the title. The map's scale and decorativeness make it very sought after.With the 1634 edition Joannes Janssonius became involved in the publication. The 1636 edition is the first occurrence of the map in the new 'Atlas Novus' issued to replace the old Mercator one" (Burden, pp. 184-185). Burden 151. Cumming 26.

        Marais artificed, entoure de Jones d'airain, et de Jets d'esu dans les jardins de Versailles

      Paris: late 18th century - This superb hand-colored engraving, Marais artificed, entoure de Jones d'airain, et de Jets d'esu dans les jardins de Versailles, from the late 18th century measures 19.75” x 26.75” and is in excellent condition. Illustrated in this engraving is courtiers of Versailles in a fountain garden, the main fountain reminiscent of a marsh, with swan fountain heads. The onlookers interact as they roam around the fountains in this lush and serene setting. The rich blues of the water blend well with greens of the gardens and the pale shades of the dusky sky. During the mid to late 18th century, the trend amongst European artists, printmakers and publishers, was to visually record their own country's architectural treasures, and the natural beauty of their gardens. Motivated by national pride, artists and printmakers began to publish views of their most-admired estates and grounds. In addition to being a visual record of the countryside, they were meant to encourage public recognition of national treasures. These prints were meant to be purchased by the English and foreign tourists whom desired a memento of their travels. Louis XIV (1638-1715), the Sun King of France, had grown up during a civil war between rival factions of aristocrats, known as the Fronde, and wanted a site where he could control the French government by absolute rule. Louis settled on the royal hunting lodge at Versailles , which had been acquired by Louis XIII in 1632, and over the following decades expanded it into the largest palace and grounds in the world. It was Louis XIV's hope to create a center for the royal court at Versailles . Beginning in 1669, the architect, Louis Le Vau (1612-1670), began a detailed renovation of the château. The Château of Versailles, outside of Paris , was converted into a spectacular royal palace in a series of four major and distinct building campaigns. By the end of the third building campaign, the Château had taken on most of the appearance that it retains to this day, except for the Royal Chapel in the last decade of the reign. Louis XIV officially moved to Versailles , along with the royal court, on May 6, 1682. Louis had several reasons for creating such a symbol of extravagant opulence and stately grandeur, and for shifting the seat of the monarch. By moving the royal court and the seat of the French government, Louis XIV hoped to gain greater control of the government from the nobility, by requiring that nobles of a certain rank and position spend time each year at Versailles, Louis prevented them from developing their own regional power and kept them from countering his efforts to centralize the French government in an absolute monarchy. Thus, many noblemen had to either to give up all influence, or to depend entirely on the king for grants and subsidies.

        Veue du Chasteau des Jardins, et de la Ville de Versailles, du coste de l'Estang

      Paris: late 18th century - This superb hand-colored engraving, Veue du Chasteau des Jardins, et de la Ville de Versailles, du coste de l'Estang, from the late 18th century measures 19.75” x 26.75” and is in excellent condition with light staining in the margins and evidence of previous repair to the central crease. Illustrated in this engraving is a view of Versailles from across a river, showing many courtiers and peasants working and riding horses. Through the use of linear perspective, this dynamic view of Versailles can be appreciated for its size and grandeur. The rich colors of the grass and river add to this lush landscape engraving. During the mid to late 18th century, the trend amongst European artists, printmakers and publishers, was to visually record their own country's architectural treasures, and the natural beauty of their gardens.

        De Calculo Renum & Vesicae Liber singularis. Cum epistolis & consultationibus magnorum virorum.

      - Leyden, Elsevir, 1638, 12°, (16), 305, (15) pp., Pergamenteinband der Zeit; feines Exemplar. First Medical Treatise to contain an Endorsement of Harvey's Discovery! - - The rare first edition of Johan van Beverwijck's (1594-1647) monograph present in the first book (pp. 1-208) Beverwijck's treatise on calculi in the kidney and bladder. The second part (pp. 209-305) contains letters addressed by Beverwijck to some prominent physicians, including Nuñez, Back, Saumaise, and Zacuto whom he consulted on that subject, along with their replies. Several consilia by Sanctorius, Spiegel, Horst, and others follow. - At the end of 1637 Beverwyck wrote a letter to Harvey in which he expressed his admiration for Harvey's discovery of blood circulation. At the same time he sent him a copy of the present book. It is the first medical treatise to contain an endorsement of Harvey's discovery, a remarkable fact in view of the negative attitude within the academic circles in Holland. The passage in question "Harvei doctrina de Circulatione sanguinus comprobata" (pp.20-24) is discussed by Walter Pagel in his William Harvey's Biological Ideas (1967), who reproduces the title-page of our book and two pages of the passage on Harvey. Harvey replied to Beverwijck's letter in April 1638, praising his book as "learned and elegant, and truly original." Osler notes the significance of Beverwyck's correspondence with Harvey but was unable to obtain a copy of this rare book. - - Beverwijck , was born in Dordrecht on 17 November 1594. He was the son of Bartholomeus van Beverwijck ( -1615), a textile trader, and Maria Boot van Wezel, a relative of Vesalius. On 25 May 1611 he matriculated at Leiden University to study arts and philosophy but switched to medicine He is said to have taken his doctoral degree with a disputation on apoplexy, but this almost certainly refers to a disputatio exercitii gratia, a public or private disputation meant as an exercise (see Lindeboom, 128). In 1615 Van Beverwijck and Cornelis van Someren (1593-1649) travelled to Caen, Paris, Orléans, Montpellier and Avignon. He also visited Rome and Siena. Meanwhile in this last town he contracted the plague. Van Beverwijck also visited Bologna and Padua, where he entered the university as a student of medicine on 14 May 1616. Under the supervision of Hieronymus Fabricius ab Aquapendente (1537-1619) he graduated on a disputation on the 79th Aphorism of book IV (De calculo) of Hippocrates. On his return journey he visited Basle and Leuven (Louvain) in the company of a Dutch physician called Buggen. In Dordrecht Van Beverwijck set up a medical practice. On 8 November 1625 he was appointed town physician of Dordrecht in succession to Jorden van Foreest (1568-1625). On 25 October 1634 Van Beverwijck inaugurated the anatomical theatre of Dordrecht with a speech on the necessity of anatomy with the "Oratie van de nootsakelickheyt der anatomie" (1634). He also became professor of medicine and anatomy at the Illustrious School (founded 1635) as well as librarian (since 1636) and administrator (1648) of the municipal library in succession to Jacob Cats (1577-1660). Van Beverwijck was a prolific writer, publishing several books on practical medicine in Dutch, like Schat der gesontheyt (1635-1636) and Schat der ongesontheyt ofte genees-konste van de sieckten (1642), as well as literary works (Spaensche Xerxes, 1640) and essays on historical topics ('t Begin van Hollant in Dordrecht, 1640). In 1639 Van Beverwijck published Van de wtnementheyt des vrouvvelicken geslachts, a collection of texts (prose and poetry) in praise of (famous) women. In 1644 he also published Epistolicae quaestiones, a work on several popular subjects containing the answers of great men. Van Beverwijck's friends include a wide range of intellectuals, like Sir Kenelm Digby (1603-1655), Constantijn Huygens, Menasseh ben Israel (1604-1657) and Anna Maria van Schurman (1607-1678). - Epistolica quaestio de vitae termino, .

        Portrait of Hippocrates engraved by P. Pontius after Peter Paul Rubens

      Antwerp, 1638. <p>Rubens, Peter Paul (1577-1640). Hippocrates Hiraclidae F. Cous. Ex marmoro antique. Engraving by Paulus Pontius [Paulus du Pont](1603-58) after Rubens. N.p. [Antwerp], 1638. 304 x 220 mm. Tiny pin-holes in upper left and lower right corners, 2 small circular stamps on verso, one reading "Stempel Tilgungs." Fine. </p> <p>An excellent impression of this well-known engraving, done by Paulus Pontius after Rubens&#39;s drawing of an antique bust of Hippocrates. "Rubens&#39;s involvement in printmaking began in earnest when he was about thirty. . . .[H]is participation in printmaking set new standards, especially for book illustrations and the reproductive print" (Logan & Plomp, "Peter Paul Rubens as Draftsman," metmuseum [internet reference]). The "Hippocrates" is the only separately issued print we know of by Rubens that is of medical interest. Paulus Pontius was a master engraver and the primary artist responsible for making engravings after Rubens&#39;s work; he lived in Rubens&#39;s home until a year after the latter&#39;s death. </p>

      Paris: late 18th century - This superb hand-colored engraving, Fontaine de la Renommee dans le Jardin de Versailles, from the late 18th century measures 19.75&#148; x 26.75&#148; and is in excellent condition with light staining and discoloration in the margins. Illustrated in this engraving is the Fountain Renommee located within a grove in the Versailles gardens. This magnificent fountain, with smaller fountains around it, is being enjoyed by onlookers from the king's court. The surrounding gardens are lush with color as is the clothing of the noblemen and women, seen interacting in this grove. During the mid to late 18th century, the trend amongst European artists, printmakers and publishers, was to visually record their own country's architectural treasures, and the natural beauty of their gardens. Motivated by national pride, artists and printmakers began to publish views of their most-admired estates and grounds. In addition to being a visual record of the countryside, they were meant to encourage public recognition of national treasures. These prints were meant to be purchased by the English and foreign tourists whom desired a memento of their travels. Louis XIV (1638-1715), the Sun King of France, had grown up during a civil war between rival factions of aristocrats, known as the Fronde, and wanted a site where he could control the French government by absolute rule. Louis settled on the royal hunting lodge at Versailles , which had been acquired by Louis XIII in 1632, and over the following decades expanded it into the largest palace and grounds in the world. It was Louis XIV's hope to create a center for the royal court at Versailles . Beginning in 1669, the architect, Louis Le Vau (1612-1670), began a detailed renovation of the château. The Château of Versailles, outside of Paris , was converted into a spectacular royal palace in a series of four major and distinct building campaigns. By the end of the third building campaign, the Château had taken on most of the appearance that it retains to this day, except for the Royal Chapel in the last decade of the reign. Louis XIV officially moved to Versailles , along with the royal court, on May 6, 1682. Louis had several reasons for creating such a symbol of extravagant opulence and stately grandeur, and for shifting the seat of the monarch. By moving the royal court and the seat of the French government, Louis XIV hoped to gain greater control of the government from the nobility, by requiring that nobles of a certain rank and position spend time each year at Versailles, Louis prevented them from developing their own regional power and kept them from countering his efforts to centralize the French government in an absolute monarchy. Thus, many noblemen had to either to give up all influence, or to depend entirely on the king for grants and subsidies.

        Veue du Chasteau de Versailles, du costre, de l'allee d'eau, et de la Fontaine du Dragon

      Paris: late 18th century - This superb hand-colored engraving, Veue du Chasteau de Versailles, du costre, de l'allee d'eau, et de la Fontaine du Dragon, from the late 18th century measures 19.75&#148; x 26.75&#148; and is in very good condition with light staining in the margins. Illustrated in this engraving is a view of the Fountain of the Dragon and Versailles rising from the background. One of the main fountains in Versailles, the Fountain of the Dragon has a Dragon in the center, with small frightened-looking statues of children surrounding it. This lively engraving shows many courtiers on the grounds walking and on horseback. Through the use of linear perspective, the engraver allows for the cascading waterfalls and lush garden areas to be appreciated along with the Fountain of the Dragon.

Elle est illustrée de 79 FIGURES sur bois, quelques-unes géométriques, la plupart narratives, certaines à caractère nettement emblématique. Cet ouvrage est un commentaire des "Récréations mathématiques" publiées à Pont-à-Mousson en 1624 sous le pseudonyme de H. Van Etten [Jean Leurechon]. La troisième partie est entièrement nouvelle et contient «a collection of many pleasant and recreative inventions of fireworks including the manner of making all kinds of rockets, single and double, with their composition all represented by figures » (Philip). La quatrième partie contient les Notes de Denis HENRION. Claude MYDORGE (1585-1647), qui était l'ami de Descartes et l'aidait à fabriquer des instruments d'optique, enrichit de ses remarques le traité de Jean Leurechon (1591-1670), l'un des premiers en langue française. Les récréations sont présentées sous forme de problème dont l'énoncé doit exciter la curiosité du lecteur : "Représenter en une chambre close tout ce qui se passe par dehors", par exemple. « A friend of Descartes and an eminent geometer, Mydorge was also well versed in optics. He possessed a lively curiosity and was open to all the new ideas of his age. Like Fermat, he belonged to that elite group of seventeenth-century scientists who pursued science as amateurs but nevertheless made contributions of the greatest importance to one or more fields of knowledge » (Biographical dictionary of mathematicians, T. III, pages 1770-71). Ex-dono manuscrit à l'encre noire en queue de la page de titre : « A Jacques Fleury et a ses amis ».

At Eton the boys in the fifth form read Valerius Maximus and Lucius Florus. There is no reason to suppose that Shakespeare knew all these, but if he went to Stratford Grammar School he would not only be able to read but to imitate the style of several of them. if he wished to consult any of the major Roman historians in Latin he could do so profitably and without great difficulty" (Bullough, Narrative and Dramatic Sources of Shakespeare). Florus was not translated into English until 1619."Florus' abridgement of Roman history, well-known to English schoolboys in Latin form, refers to Coriolanus briefly in his Book I, and gives a version of the fable of the Body's Members" (Gillespie, Shakespeare's Books, p. 171).Goldsmid II, p. 47.

        Sumario de la familia ilustrissima de Vasconcelos, historiada, y con elogios. Dirigido a la ilustrissima señora doña Ana de Vasconcelos y Meneses, Condesa de Figueyro ?.

      Madrid, Juan Sanchez, 1638. - Small typographical ornament on title page. Woodcut headpiece. Woodcut tailpiece. Typographical tailpiece. Woodcut initials. (6), 68 ll. 4°, contemporary limp vellum (somewhat worn, minor stains). Paper flaw to leaf A3, affecting a few words of text; overall in very good condition. A few early marginal annotations. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION. This history of the Vasconcelos family traces their origins to Dom Dinis through his son, Dom Pedro, Conde de Barcelos. The house of Vasconcelos is also traced to the Conde don Rodrigo Velloso, son of don Pedro Frojas, Conde de Traua in Galicia, brother of Conde don Fernan Paez de Trastamara, second husband of Dona Teresa, mother of Dom Afonso Henriques. Another ilustrious ancestor was said to be Martin Moniz, grandson of Count Osorio de la Lamia. The author demonstrates various other relationships between the house of Vasconcelos and the royal families of Portugal and Castile, as well as links with many of the most prominent families of the Iberian Peninsula. Members of the family held posts such as Master of the Order of Santiago, and governor of Ceuta. The work contains a few lines of poetry in Portuguese.The author, a native of Monção, was a presbyter and doctor of canon law at Coimbra University. After 1640 he became a staunch defender of the rights of D. João IV to the Portuguese throne. Dom Francisco Manuel de Melo referred to him as a "douto escritor", and according to the @Grande enciclopédia he was an "escrupuloso linhagista".---- Moreno Garbayo, @La imprenta em Madrid (1626-1650) 1867.

        A Display of Heraldrie:

      London - Jacob Blome 1638 - An uncommon third edition of John Guillim's A Display of Heraldrie. Bound in early calf leather. One of the best editions of Guillim. Not the best condition but priced accordingly. Can command up to $2000The Third Edition, Corrected and much enlarged by the Author himself during his lifetime. Pages 168-169 omitted from pagination. Pages 409-433 being the section Hawking and Huntingare not present. Several of the coats of arms have been hand-coloured. Guillim's Display of Heraldrie, of which there were further posthumous enlarged editions, was to remain the standard textbook on English heraldry until the second half of the eighteenth century, and it is still regularly used by working heralds in the twenty-first century. (DNB)John Guillim, c. 1565 1621, was an antiquarian and officer of arms at the College of Arms in London. He is, perhaps, best remembered for his monumental work A Display of Heraldry which was first published in London in 1610. Guillim was educated at Brasenose College in Oxford University. The first record of his involvement with heraldry is the Earl Marshal's warrant, dated 23 February 1604, permitting him to bear the tabard of the Portsmouth Pursuivant Extraordinary. From Michaelmas 1613, he was receiving a salary from the College of Arms, though his official appointment as Rouge Croix Pursuivant of Arms in Ordinary was not made until 1618. As the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography tells us, Guillim began writing his one work, and the reason for his subsequent deserved fame, A Display of Heraldrie, in 1595 In 1611 Guillim's Display of Heraldrie was published. . . It contained 283 folio pages and more than 500 woodcuts of shields in the text, illustrating the arms of named families and early seventeenth-century office-holders. Condition: The binding is generally tight and firm. The first and last pages are partially detached. The front board is detached. The rear board is held byone cord only, and could possibly detach inthe posteven after careful packaging. There is significant wear to the extremities, including significant bumping and rubbing, with loss to the leather on the rear board. Internally the pages have browning to the page edges and the very occasional spot and handling and inkmarks. There are occasional browned watermarkings to the page edges. Page 408, has two closed tears. The title page andlast pagehave significant browning and several chips to the page edges. Several pages throughout have small closed tears. There is a large heraldic symboland an institutional label on the front pastedown, with ink inscriptions to the front and rear pastedowns. There are occasional marginal ink inscriptions throughout the text. Overall the condition is good only. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Madrid, en la Imprenta de Francisco Martinez, 1638. - Two finely engraved plates. Eighteen engraved half-length portraits in text at the beginning of eulogies II through XIX. Double-ruled woodcut border throughout. Woodcut initials. Nine woodcut tailpieces. Two plates with finely engraved portraits (the Conde Duque de Olivares [the dedicatee] and Philip IV of Spain), (6), 100 ll. [i.e., 102, with 96-97 bis]; quire Bb, of 2 ll., bound after quire Cc, which ends with the colophon. Leaf 87 incorrectly numbered 7. 4°, contemporary limp vellum (inner front hinge weak, lacks ties and front free endleaf), pastedown endleaves taken from the text of an earlier work, vertical manuscript title on spine. Some light toning. Overall in fine condition. ---- FIRST EDITION. The eighteen engraved half-length portraits are all dated 1637 and signed by Pedro Perete (or Perrete, d. 1639). Son and pupil of Pieter Perret (b. Antwerp 1555; d. Madrid c. 1625), the younger Perete was one of the second generation of Flemish engravers working in Spain.The portrait of the Conde Duque de Olivares, bearing the motto "Sicut oliva fructifera" instead of his name, is signed "Ex Archetypo Velazquez. Herman Panneels f. Matriti 1638". The portrait of Philip IV was also executed in 1638 by Panneels, after a painting by Diego Velázquez. Panneels, born in Antwerp (fl. Madrid 1638?50), is considered one of the best engravers in seventeenth-century Spain.The first eulogy, much longer than the others (ll. 7?18), is about King Philip IV. The others are of popes and saints (Leo I, St. Gregory I, Nicolas I, St. Basil), a philosopher (Albertus Magnus), ancient Roman and Holy Roman Emperors (Constantine the Great, Theodosius I, Leo I, Charles I, Otto I), military heroes of antiquity (Alexander the Great, Pompey the Great), a king of France (Clovis), Spanish kings (Don Alonso III, King of Oviedo; Don Sancho IV, King of Navarra; Don Fernando I, King of Castile and Leon and Emperor of Spain; Don Pedro III, King of Aragon), and a modern military hero (Gonzalo Fernandez de Cordova, el Grande Capitan).---- Palau 327462: calling for only 7 preliminary leaves, including the 2 full-page portraits.
