        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>

        Fontaine de la Renommee dans le Jardin de Versailles

      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.

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.

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]

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.

        Plate 68, Veue d'une des aisles du Chateau de St. Cloud du Cote du fer a Cheval ou du Chemin de Versailles

      Paris: late 18th century - This superb hand-colored engraving, Plate 68, Veue d'une des aisles du Chateau de St. Cloud du Cote du fer a Cheval ou du Chemin de Versailles, from the late 18th century measures 19.75&#148; x 26.75&#148; and is in very good condition with foxing throughout. This engraving shows a view of the way leading from Chateau St. Cloud to Versailles. Noblemen and women are seen coming on foot and carriage to the grand estate, greeted by the impressive fountains and lush gardens. 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.

      Leonard Lichfield. LEATHER BOUND. B00KRE23O0 1638 first edition Leonard Lichfield (Oxford, England), 5 7/8 x 7 3/4 inches tall black full leather bound, gilt lettering to spine, marbled endpapers, woodcut headpiece and initials, [24], 355 pp., complete.

References: STC (2nd ed.), 14317; ESTC No. S107491. ~TTT~ Thomas Jackson (1579-1640) was an English theologian, and served as president of Corpus Christi College, Oxford for the last decade of his life. Originally a Calvinist, he became in later life an Arminian. This was the last of his works published during his lifetime, the ninth of what he planned as twelve books examining the Apostle&#39;s Creed. In theology, Jackson was considered a syncretic Platonist. He took an interest in the Epicurean view of free will, but argued for a middle way accommodating the Stoic criticism of the Epicureans. His humanistic Platonism has been compared to that of Robert Burton (1577-1640), author of The Anatomy of Melancholy. Puritan polemicist William Prynne (1600-1669), arguing against William Laud&#39;s promotion of Jackson, claimed Jackson&#39;s learning only made him more dangerous. . Very Good. 1638. First Edition.

        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.

        Deß Durchlauchtigsten Hochgebornen Fürsten unnd Herrn/ Herrn Christiani des Andern/ Hertzogen zu Sachsen/ etc. Appellations-Ordnung Wie es forthin in deroselben Appella- tion=Gericht gehalten werden sol.

      Dreßden, Bey Simel Bergen seligen nachgelassener Wittib und Erben, 1638.. Oktav. Titelblatt mit Signet, 66ungezählte Seiten. Späterer Halbpergamentband.. Das sächsische Appellationsgerichts ist ein fürstliches Hofgericht, das bedeutet, der Landesherr übt mithilfe seines Hofgerichts selbst die höchste Gerichtsbarkeit aus. Das "Appellationsgericht" funktioniert auch als Berufungsinstanz der verschiedenen Hofgerichte. Das Gericht setzt sich aus "Hofräten" zusammen, bei diesem Appellationsgericht "aus unsern Landen und Universitäten elff Personen". Die Abstimmung erfolgt nach Majorität, bei Stimmengleich gibt die Stimme des Präsidenten den Ausschlag. Eine Präjudiziensammlung ist vom Präsidenten und den Beisitzern "über zeifelhafte Fälle" anzulegen und zu führen: "...dieweil sonderlich nach Gelegenheit des Sächsischen Rechtens viel Tun in dem üblichen Gerichtsbrauch stehet". Das Gericht tagte zweimal im Jahr in der jeweiligen Residenz. Die Advokatur ist freigegeben, das heißt, es besteht kein numerus clausus der zugelassenen Rechtsanwälte. Vor dem Appellationsgericht wird ausschließlich in sächsischer Weise vom Mund in die Feder verfahren. Anzuwendendes Recht sind die "ausgehangene Landesordnung und publicirte Constitutiones". Das Gemeine Recht kommt nur subsidiär zur Anwendung. Der Entwurf dieser Appellationsgerichtsordnung stammt von Hartmann Pistoris. Die Appellationsordnung war insgesamt ein Markstein in der Entwicklung des deutschen gemeinen Prozesses und diente auch der Prozeßordnung von 1622 als Vorlage.
