        Compendium philosophiae, datum a.d.d. J. Pigis. (Kolophon: Scribebat Michael Guillois anno aetatis decimo octavo). Lateinisches Manuskript auf Papier.

      Paris, 1638.. 260 S.. Mit gezeichneter Titelvignette (Vase mit Blumen) und einer Tafel (System der Philosophie als architektonisches Schema). 12° (100 x 65 mm). Genarbter dunkelroter Maroquinband d. Z. auf 5 Bünden, mit reicher Deckel- und Rückenvergoldung, goldgeprägten gekrönten Initialen auf Vorder- und Wappensupralibro auf Hinterdeckel, Stehkantenvergoldung und dreiseitigem Goldschnitt.. Das Bändchen erhielt etwa in den 20er Jahren des 20. Jhdts einen roten Maroquin-Schutzumschlag (goldgepr. Rückentitel, Deckel mit montiertem Marmorpapier) und einen Leder-Pappschuber (dieser an den Kanten etwas berieben); das Wasserzeichen des geglätteten Büttenpapiers nicht entziffert; fliegende marmorierte Vorsätze fehlen. Vorzüglich erhaltenes Manuskript in schönem Wappeneinband und von bedeutender Provenienz: Auf dem vorderen Spiegel befindet sich das goldgepr. ovale Leder-Exlibris von Jacob P. R. Lyell (emporgereckter Arm mit Schwert; Motto: Viam aut inveniam aut faciam. Ein J. P. R. Lyell war nicht zu ermitteln); darunter, aber wahrscheinlich früher, das goldgepr. Leder-Exlibris von Mortimer L(oeb) Schiff (Namenszug in ovaler Rocaillen-Rahmung). M. L. Schiff, 1877-1931, Nachkomme jüdisch-deutscher Amerika-Einwanderer, Banker, Sammler (Bilder, Porzellan etc.), in seinem letzten Lebensmonat Präsident der Boy Scouts of America, war auch Sammler kostbar gebundener Bücher des 16.-19. Jhdts; als Philanthrop spendete er dem Jewish Theological Seminary u. a. eine Haggadah-Handschrift (Köln 1454; nur eine weiteres Exemplar im British Museum bekannt); außer in zahlr. Wohltätigkeitsorganisationen war er auch Mitglied in der exklusiven Bibliophilenvereinigung des Grolier Club (New York); seine Sammlungen gelangten 1938 bei Christie's zur Auktion (die Ergebnisse sollen miserabel gewesen sein). Die Initialenprägung unter siebenzackiger Krone (Vorderdeckel) und das Wappen-Supralibro auf dem Hinterdeckel (Schild mit Querbalken und 3 fleurs-de-lys unter der Krone) verweisen darauf, dass das Exemplar aus der Bibliothek von Charles Valois d'Orleans, Herzog von Angouleme (1573-1650), stammt. Dieser, Sohn von Charles IX und Marie Touchet, war in seinem turbulenten Leben Großprior des Malteserordens in Frankreich, nahm an mehreren Feldzügen teil, wurde wegen seiner Verwicklung in einer Hofintrige zu lebenslanger Haft verurteilt, 1616 rehabilitiert, zum Generaloberst der Kavallerie ernannt, bis er schließlich 1620 als Botschafter nach Deutschland ging. Seine umfängliche Bibliothek wurde von seinem Sohn, Louis de Valois, dem Kloster von Guiche (Charolais) gestiftet und in den Wirren der frz. Revolution in alle Winde zerstreut. Kaum vorstellbar, dass der 18jährige Verfasser des Manuskriptes (siehe Explicit), Michael Guillois, nicht zum näheren Umfeld des Herzogs gehört hat, denn welches andere Interesse könnte dieser an Guillois bzw. am Manuskript gehabt haben? Die Schrift (braune Tinte; Spiegel 68 x 45 mm; in brauner Vorlinierung) klein, sehr sauber und, trotz juveniler Eigenarten wie Rundungen, Bögen etc., nach Eingewöhnung leicht zu lesen; der Text, in Latein abgefaßt, zeugt von einer erstaunlichen Bildungsreife des Jugendlichen und, nach einer Einleitung, behandelt mit Metaphysica, Physica, Logica und Moralia den Kanon der vorkartesianische Philosophie, wie Guillois sie durch seinen Lehrer Jacques Pigis (? - 1676; Professor für Griechisch am College de France 1650-1676) vermittelt bekam.

        Histoire veritable contenant la vie de Iacob Almancor Roy d'Arabie, qui conquist le Royaume d'Espagne sur le Roy Dom Roderic.

      Paris, Gervais Clousier, 1638.. 8vo. 174 pp. With engraved title vignette. 19th-c. half calf with giltstamped title to panelled spine. Marbled endpapers.. First French edition of the life of Almansor, the Arabic conqueror and ruler of Spain in the tenth century. Translated from "La Verdadera Historia del Rey Rodrigo" by Gilles de Rainssant. The author, the Moorish apologist Miguel de Luna, first published this historical work in two parts in 1592 and 1600. Although presented as a translation from an Arabic manuscript, it was almost certainly of his own composition. It is important as a sympathetic account of the Moorish conquest of Spain and offers numerous accounts of the humanity and cultivation of an Arabic prince. His pre-eminence in science and learning is dwelt upon, and there is an interesting account of the formation of his vast library: he is said to have offered twice the market value for any book he found wanting from his collections. This rare French edition marks an early and remarkable point in the emergent French interest in the Arab world. - Slight browning throughout. Bookplate of Eugene Vignat (1815-95), Mayor of Orleans and Depute of Lorient. A good copy. Rare. - Goldsmith A 275. OCLC 771039115. Not in Barbier. Not in Brunet.

        [Florilegium], Nicolaus Guillelmus a florae Lotharingus. Fecit Romae 1638.

      1638. [Paris], Pierre Mariette, 1638. Small oblong 4to (190 x 290mm). Engraved throughout, title-portrait within border of flowers, 12 plates of flowers, all by Delafleur (some neat marginal repairs, old crease marks with very small tears to plates numbered 8 and 9, all but two plates pricked for transfer or showing the marks from an adjoining plate). Contemporary limp vellum (neatly rebacked, ties lacking). First edition of this rare set of decorative plates, the de Belder copy (a variant before the addition of the privilege) is the only copy we could trace having been sold in the last 20 years. Born in Lorraine, Delafleur was known in Rome, where he worked for Cardinal Barberinni, as 'Monsu Fiore' Monsieur Flower) in recognition of his great skill in depicting floral subjects. The present work, unlike many other 17th century botanical works, does not seem to be based on any earlier models.The plates each feature two or more varieties or species, with six plates depicting small bunches tied with ribbons around their stalks. Bulbous plants predominate (daffodils, narcissi, jonquils, tulips, blue-bells, lilies and fritillaries) but the work also includes irises, carnations and roses. Hunt 232 ('rather rare'); Berlin Kat. II, 4416 (incomplete); Thieme-Becker 3:578..

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. Karl Ludwig (1617-80) war der Sohn Friedrichs V., des Winterkönigs, und der Elisabeth Stuart; 1652 wurde seine Tochter Liselotte von der Pfalz geboren. 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.

        The generall historie of the Turkes.

      [London], Adam Islip, 1638.. Folio (235 x 335 mm). (10), 1500, (20), 31, (33) pp. Original half vellum over wooden boards. Gilt embossed red label to spine. All edges red.. Fifth edition. The first folio edition appeared in 1603. James VI of Scotland became James I of England in March of that year following the death of Elizabeth I. Knolles took advantage of the dynastic transition by dedicating the work to "the High and Mightie Prince James". Knolles' "Historie" is based heavily on a range of 16th-century printed chronicles and reports. It is, therefore, essentially a synthesis of other works, but a carefully crafted synthesis produced in English. Nothing of this scale and detail had appeared before in English on the Ottomans, and it would be another fifty years before a subsequent work in English would become the authority on the subject. Despite this fact, both Samuel Johnson and Lord Byron turned to Knolles centuries later, and both alluded to the richness of his prose style. William Shakespeare, moreover, likely used Knolles' work (and possibly an earlier manuscript version) as a source for his Othello (1603/04) (cf. Parry, 2003). - Two bookplates showing the arms of Lord George Macartney (1737-1806) on pastedown.The ESTC records 55 surviving copies. Identical with digital copy on EEBO, while the British Library counts 12 pp. (instead of 10 pp.) of preface. - ESTC S112920. STC (2nd ed.) 15055. Cf. Atabey, 1076; Wing K702, R2407, R2408; Blackmer 1466 (1687 ed.). V. J. Parry, Richard Knolles' History of the Turks. Ed. Salih Ozbaran.

        De Animalibus Insectis. Libri septem.

      1638. Bononiae, apud C. Ferronium, 1638. Folio (340 x 225mm). pp. (8), 767, (1), (44), with engraved title and about 700 woodcuts. Contemporary vellum, spine in 7 compartments, blind stamped centre pieces on covers. A very fine copy of '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..

        Apologie et deffence du Sr. Comte Francisque de Belle-Joyeuse: contre le manifeste ou pretendues sentences du Seigneur Paul de Berloz.

      [Lüttich], o. Dr., 1638.. 69, (1) SS., l. w. Bl. Geheftet. 4to.. Außerordentlich seltene gedruckte Quelle zum Prozeß des Paul de Berlo(z) gegen Francisque de Belgioso (Beljoyeuse), in welchem ersterer sein Erbrecht auf das Schloß Chokier südwestlich von Lüttich (letztlich erfolgreich) gegen Belgioso erstritt. Paul de Berlo war 1592 noch als Kind von Marie de Senzeille und ihrem zweiten Gatten Paul de Stor adoptiert und zum Alleinerben auf Chokier eingesetzt worden. Nach dem Tode de Stors heiratete Marie 1596 den Mailänder Militär und Haudegen Jean-Jacques Barbiano de Belgioso. Der jähzornige und brutale Wüstling, dessen Untaten Legende waren, schaffte den Ziehsohn Paul nach Italien, sperrte seine Gattin in einen Kerker, um ihr ein Testament zu seinem Gunsten abzupressen, und erstickte sie zuletzt 1602 mit einem Kissen. Er beerbte seine Gattin und heiratete hernach Anne de Poitiers. Nach seinem Tode 1626 fiel Chokier an diese, die das Erbe aber an ihres Mannes Neffen, Ludovic Barbiano de Belgioso abtrat; nach dessen Tod im Folgejahr fiel es an seinen Bruder, Francisque de Belgioso. Gegen diesen klagte der nunmehr aus Italien zurückgekehrte Paul de Berlo sein Erbrecht ein. Zum Erfolg verhalf seiner Klage nicht zuletzt das Gebetbuch der Marie, in welches die Gefangene mit ihrem eigenen Blut ihre Leiden aufgezeichnet hatte. 1636 wurde Paul das Schloß Chokier zugesprochen, doch Belgioso focht das Urteil an: In der vorliegenden Flugschrift versuchte er, die Ansprüche seines Gegners zu diskreditieren. Erst 1639 konnte Paul de Berlo das Schloß endgültig in Besitz nehmen. - Titel etwas angestaubt; einige kleinere Randläsuren; Heftung der ersten Lage gelockert. Am letzten w. Bl. verso hs. Notiz um 1750: "Le Comte de Beljoyeuse Contre Paul De Berlo". Über internationale Bibliothekskataloge kein weiteres Exemplar nachweisbar. - X. de Theux (Bibliographie Liegeoise), 297 (offb. nicht gesehen; falsch: "1678").

        THE ART OF FORTIFICATION, OR ARCHITECTURE MILITAIRE

      Amsterdam: for John Johnson, 1638.. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION 1638, divided into two parts, reviewed augmented and corrected by Albert Girard, Mathematician... & translated out of the French into English by Henry Hexam, Ex library copy. 4to, approximately 280 x 190 mm, 11 x 7½ inches, 40 numbered double page plates, but there are 42 in total as there are two plates numbered 2e 14 & 2e 17, engraved title page which is from the Amsterdam Dutch edition of 1627 with printed cancel slip pasted on, this is the same as the Sotheby's Macclesfield copy see note below, 44 pages to 1st part and 48 pages to 2nd part followed by a double page-table, woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces, handsomely rebound in full panel calf, heavy gilt decoration to spine, raised bands, maroon label with gilt lettering, new endpapers, the collation is the same as Cockle: *2, A4-F2, Aa4-Ff4; * and F are in twos. Pale staining to upper and lower margins throughout just affecting a few images, a few lower margins have small closed tears neatly repaired, 2 small neat repairs to outer margins, not affecting text, 1 page has 2 small repairs to upper margin, not affecting text, plates slightly dusty, occasional ink spot and mark, pages have horizontal crease, old ink name scribbled out on upper margin of title page, not affecting image, neat old ink name of previous owner and small pale library stamp on the blank side of title page, otherwise no more library markings. A very good copy of this rare military book. The first work on fortification in English in which the subject is treated scientifically. For though in several of the earlier books in English on the military art in general there are chapters, or sections devoted to this branch, these notices, at best, are fragmentary. Marolois' treatise describes the Dutch system, and has a table showing the dimensions of a fortification. See Maurice J. D.

        A Relation of the Fearefull Estate of Francis Spira, in the yeare, 1548

      London: Printed By J.L. For Phil Stephens and Christoph. Meredith., 1638. First Edition. 12mo. [2], 186pp, [2]. With final imprimateur leaf. Victorian half-calf over marbled boards, heavilly rubbed, joints split with loss to head and foot of spine, corners. Extensive manuscript biographical notes, dated 1883, tipped to endpapers. Inscription of Robt. Davis to blank-fly and A.S. Syer to title. Further ink marks to recto and verso of title. Marginal loss to B2, occasional shaving to running title. Nineteenth-century institutional blind-stamp to title and final leaf. Nathaniel Bacon (bap.1593, d.1660), English jurist, politician and author. This present work is the first edition of an especially influential retelling of the life of Francis Spira, a notorious Italian apostate who was dubbed a 'Nicodemite' by Jean Calvin after recanting his Protesantism at the Venetian inquisition. Later questioning his decision and enduring a long period of despair that culminated, the story recounts, in his anguished death. Bacon's popularization of this Protestant tale clearly resonated with the English readership, as the work continued to be frequently reprinted during the seventeenth-, eighteenth- and nineteenth-centuries. Appearing in 3 settings in the first year of publication, with paginations varying in length from 80 to 186; this present edition by far the most extensive. All are scarce, with ESTC locating only 5 copies of this present edition worldwide, with only Huntington outside of the US. STC 1178.

A Silver Watch Bell, The Sound whereof is able (by the Grace of God) to win the most prophane Worldling and careless Liver, (if there be but the least spark of Grace remaining in him) to become a true Christian indeed, that in the end he may obtain everlasting Salvation; Whereunto is adjoyned, A Treatise of the Holy Sacrament of The Lord's Supper, in part augmented. By Thomas Tymme. XVIIIth Impression. London: Printed by John Haviland, for Thomas Alchorn, 1638. Small octavo. [A1], [tipped-in leaf, with title supplied in ink on recto], A3-A8, B-H8, I1, I3-I8, K-T8. [2, blank], [2, title in ink, verso blank], [6, Dedication], [4, To the Reader], [2, Contents], [1]2-114, 117-188 pp. Lacking A2 (title-page) and I2 (pp. 115-116). Text within double-ruled border, with headline, page numbers, and marginal glosses inside outer border. Sixteen head-pieces, fourteen ornamental initials, and two tail-pieces. Contemporary marbled boards, rebacked (possibly in 1915, according to pencil note on front pastedown) with speckled calf, modern red and white paper spine label lettered in ink. Plain endpapers, all edges speckled red, some trimmed close to headlines and in a few cases to marginal inscriptions. Boards worn, hinges cracked. Tiny rust or ink hole to top of front free endpaper, tiny wormhole to outer margin of beginning leaves, affecting a letter or two of marginal glosses. Over-opened at a few places. Still a very good copy. A popular, much-reprinted work, Tymme’s little religious book was first published in 1605. This copy contains ink inscriptions, signatures, and marginal notations in at least five different hands: John Locke (dated 1669 on p. v), Ri. Yolland (undated), Emmanual Bayhind (undated), William Yoo (dated December 21, 1782 on p. 244), and Rietteel (dated N. York, 1819 on front free endpaper and title-page). We have been unable to locate any information on the later owners of the book. While many of the annotations in the volume are by its later owners, pp. iv and v contain Locke’s signatures and inscriptions, including a quotation in Greek. Numerous other pages (pp. 4, 6, 9, 66, 78, 80, 101, 118, 134, 139, 144, 146, 165, 228, 229, 232, 234, and 238) contain marginal notes (often in Greek) in what appears to be the same handwriting. Locke may have noted in the margin of p. 96 the date he purchased the book, its cost, and a selected list of page numbers; though partially obliterated by a later owner, the note seems to read "166[?].his book of Mr.[?] florins." On p. 176, there appears in the margin a figure which may perhaps be an early, crude version of Locke’s paraph–the distinctive mark he used to authenticate his signature on legal documents, and occasionally to mark his books for an unknown purpose (see Harrison and Laslett, pp. 41-2). Locke may have marked the spine with a label or press-mark, but if so, this has been lost when the volume was rebacked. During the period that Locke (1632-1704) acquired and annotated this volume, he was a tutor at Christ Church, Oxford. A book collector as well as physician, writer, and scholar, Locke amassed his library primarily for his own research purposes. In 1669, however, he did not have the bulk of the volumes which would comprise his library at Otes in the 1680s and ‘90s. In those later years, Locke was faced with a rapidly expanding library which confounded attempts to find any particular volume in it. Locke therefore developed a complicated cataloguing procedure to allow him easily to locate the volumes he needed. Though he generally made notations for his own reference on the title-page, spine, and last page of a work—and often also made a list of page numbers for future reference on a fly-leaf—he typically did not underline words or phrases in his books. "On the whole he left his margins well alone, and made his notes in his notebooks," always showing "much admirable respect for the whiteness of his pa [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Apologie et deffence du Sr. Comte Francisque de Belle-Joyeuse: contre le manifeste ou pretendues sentences du Seigneur Paul de Berloz.

      [Lüttich], o. Dr., 1638. - 69, (1) SS., l. w. Bl. Geheftet. 4to. Außerordentlich seltene gedruckte Quelle zum Prozeß des Paul de Berlo(z) gegen Francisque de Belgioso (Beljoyeuse), in welchem ersterer sein Erbrecht auf das Schloß Chokier südwestlich von Lüttich (letztlich erfolgreich) gegen Belgioso erstritt. Paul de Berlo war 1592 noch als Kind von Marie de Senzeille und ihrem zweiten Gatten Paul de Stor adoptiert und zum Alleinerben auf Chokier eingesetzt worden. Nach dem Tode de Stors heiratete Marie 1596 den Mailänder Militär und Haudegen Jean-Jacques Barbiano de Belgioso. Der jähzornige und brutale Wüstling, dessen Untaten Legende waren, schaffte den Ziehsohn Paul nach Italien, sperrte seine Gattin in einen Kerker, um ihr ein Testament zu seinem Gunsten abzupressen, und erstickte sie zuletzt 1602 mit einem Kissen. Er beerbte seine Gattin und heiratete hernach Anne de Poitiers. Nach seinem Tode 1626 fiel Chokier an diese, die das Erbe aber an ihres Mannes Neffen, Ludovic Barbiano de Belgioso abtrat; nach dessen Tod im Folgejahr fiel es an seinen Bruder, Francisque de Belgioso. Gegen diesen klagte der nunmehr aus Italien zurückgekehrte Paul de Berlo sein Erbrecht ein. Zum Erfolg verhalf seiner Klage nicht zuletzt das Gebetbuch der Marie, in welches die Gefangene mit ihrem eigenen Blut ihre Leiden aufgezeichnet hatte. 1636 wurde Paul das Schloß Chokier zugesprochen, doch Belgioso focht das Urteil an: In der vorliegenden Flugschrift versuchte er, die Ansprüche seines Gegners zu diskreditieren. Erst 1639 konnte Paul de Berlo das Schloß endgültig in Besitz nehmen. - Titel etwas angestaubt; einige kleinere Randläsuren; Heftung der ersten Lage gelockert. Am letzten w. Bl. verso hs.

        Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Geographica Ac Hydrographica Tabula

      Frankfurt: Mattheus Merian, 1638. Uncolored copper engraving. Image measures 10.5 x 14". This stunning map depicts the world as known in the early 17th century. The North Pole, shown as an inset in the lower left corner, is much more accurately rendered than in the past. In contrast, however, the inset of the South Pole in the lower right shows the massive hypothetical continent of Terra Australis, or "Southern Land," which is connected to New Guinea on the main map. Many other uncertainties remain: California is a peninsula, the interior of North America is largely blank with the Great Lakes yet undiscovered, and there are many open ended waterways that suggest the possibility for a Northwest Passage. But overall, the map is highly detailed, giving close attention to coastlines. The sea features a number of ornamental ships and sea monsters. Merian originally prepared his map for his German-text edition of Pierre d'Avity's "Les estats, empires, royaumes et principautes du monde" and was published in other topographical works of the period. This example is the first state, which was only published from 1638 until 1646, after which Merian's signature was removed. Text is in both ornamented gothic German script and Latin script. The map is in very good condition with overall toning. Small tear on lower left margin, not affecting the image. A treat in this uncolored state. The Swiss-born Matthäus Merian (1593-1650) studied in Zurich and Paris before moving to Frankfurt am Main, where he worked as an engraver, etcher and publisher. His maps are meticulously rendered.

        The book of common prayer, and administration of the sacraments: And other rites and ceremonies of the Church of England

      [Cambridge]: Thomas Buck & Roger Daniel, 1638. Folio (35 cm, 13.75"). [96] pp. (of 104). An excellent example of the Anglican prayer book as it stood under Charles I, produced by two names prominent among the 17th-century printers to the University of Cambridge, and here with "The Psalmes of David, of the Old Translation" as issued. A number of "fleuronic ornaments" (as Griffiths puts it) are present, including the title-page frame; the text is also decorated with three tailpieces and a number of different types of ornamental capitals, and is printed in double-column format in a large, easy to read roman. => The title-page verso is all but completely filled with inked meditations taken from Bishop Gibson's pastoral letters, inscribed in an 18th-century hand. ESTC S902; STC (2nd ed.) 16410; Griffiths, Bibliography of the Book of Common Prayer, 1638/2. Later period-style black morocco framed and panelled in double gilt fillets and gilt roll with gilt-stamped corner fleurons, spine with gilt-stamped title and gilt-ruled raised bands; boards slightly bowed, gilt showing small spots of rubbing. Lower (closed) page edges institutionally rubber-stamped, title-page and one other perforation-stamped, first almanac page with numerals rubber-stamped in lower portion. Final four leaves lacking (from Psalms). Title-page verso with annotations as above; two pages of almanac with early inked corrections; one text page with early inked pointer in inner margin. Title-page darkened; areas of waterstaining to some outer and inner margins. Pleasing despite minor loss at back and faults noted; a nice Buck and Daniel printing, with engaging evidence of readership.

      1638. First Elzevier Edition[SHAKESPEARE SOURCE]. FLORUS, [Lucius] Publius Annaeus. L. Annaeus Florus [Works], CL. Salmasius, addidit Lucium Ampelium. & cod. M.S. nunquam antehac editum. Lugd. Batav. [Leiden]: apud Elzevirios, 1638. First Elzevier edition, second issue, with pp. 200 and 336 misnumbered as 220 and 536 respectively. Twelvemo (4 15/15 x 2 3/4 in; 126 x 70 mm). [8], 536 [i.e. 336], [16, index] pp. Engraved illustrated title-page, headpieces, tailpieces, initials. Contemporary vellum. Yapp edges. Manuscript title to spine. Bookplate of Henry Scott Boys, late Bengal Civil Service, Allahabad. Neat ownership signatures to endpapers and title-page. Quarter inch wormhole to [ii-vii, 2]. Occasional early and neat underlinings. Small loss to spine head/upper board at joint. Otherwise an excellent copy in its original seventeenth century vellum binding.Scarce in the marketplace; no copies have come to auction within the last thirty-six years."At the better grammar schools of the time the relevant authors studied were Ovid, Cicero, Caesar, Sallust and Livy. 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. Willems 467. Copinger 1738.
