Folio (12" x 7-1/2"). Recent plain limp vellum, spine ends and corners lightly bumped, later typrewritten auction house (or dealer) description tipped-in to front endleaf. Text in fine hand to rectos and versos of most leaves. Light browning, light foxing and faint dampstaining to text, edgewear to most leaves, some have chips and tears with minor loss to text, a few leaves have recent repairs, internal condition very good overall. An interesting manuscript. * Possibly the work of a student, justice of the peace, or manorial official, this interesting manuscript is a compilation of rules and precedents relating to foresters, hunters, woodcutters and woodsellers. Its careful organization, lack of corrections and addition of side-notes indicates that it is a fair copy intended to serve as a reference. In effect, it is a manuscript handbook. Its contents are drawn from law collections relating to the great English forests of the day, principally Wynchwood, more commonly Wychwood, located in Oxfordshire, Windsor Forest, the Royal preserve located on the border of Berkshire and Surrey, Waltham Forest, a borough of East London, and the Forest of Dean, located in the western part of Gloucestershire. The texts are in English, La … [Click Below for Full Description]

BLAEU, Willem
Amsterdam, 1638. unbound. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 15.25" x 20". This important 1638 map by Willem Blaeu provides an unexpected and unequalled view of the nascent colonies of New Netherlands, labeled with its Latin equivalent of Nova Belgica, and New Amsterdam. Oriented to the west, it proceeds from south at top to north at bottom, producing an oddly oriented but highly detailed account of the coastline. This map publicizes the 1613 discoveries of Dutch captain Adriaen Block, who added to contemporary accumulated knowledge of the coastline through his voyages around Long Island and the Cape. Block's contributions, as noted on his well-known chart of 1614, include the recognition and naming of the islands of Manhates (Manhattan) and Matowacs (Long Island); detailing of the valleys of the Hudson and Connecticut Rivers; and labeling of Nieu Pleimonth, Fort Orange (formerly Fort Nassau), and various other Dutch settlements. While Blaeu repeats the inaccurate horizontality of the coast, he adds to public knowledge of the new continent by depicting local wildlife, including deer, foxes, bears, egrets, rabbits, cranes, and turkeys. Beavers and otters also appear for the first time, although it seems Dutch settlers had not yet discovered that beavers are herbivores, since one is shown clutching a fish in its mouth. The upper left corner of the map contains two inset illustrations of Mohegan villages that, despite their idealization, nonetheless offer insight into the tiny icons of Indian villages dotting the landscape. First issued in 1635, Blaeu's map … [Click Below for Full Description]

Isidore of Pelusium (d. ca. 450) "was born in Egypt to a prominent Alexandrian family. He became an ascetic, and moved to a mountain near the city of Pelusium, in the tradition of the Desert Fathers. Isidore is known to us for his letters, written to Cyril of Alexandria, Theodosius II, and a host of others. A collection of 2,000 letters was made in antiquity at the "Sleepless" monastery in Constantinople, and this has come down to us through a number of manuscripts, with each letter numbered and in order. The letters are mostly very short extracts, a sentence or two in length. Further unpublished letters exist in Syriac translation" (Wiki). Ebert 10573.

[Belgien - Schloß Chokier].
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; einig … [Click Below for Full Description]

Diego Mex?a Felipez de Guzman (1580 - Milano 1655)
Bozza autografa di importante documento dat. 25 Maggio 1638 (destinato alle stampe) del Marchese di Leganes, Governatore di Milano dal 1635 al 1641, relativo alla guerra contro i Francesi per il predominio sull'Italia settentrionale, con particolari riferimenti alla situazione del Ducato di Savoia, che è minacciato dalle truppe francesi che hanno occupato proditoriamente alcune importanti piazzeforti. Riportiamo un passo a titolo di esempio: "Ben si raccorderanno tutti li suditi e naturali delle Provincie di Piemonte e Savoia che dopo la pace di Ratisbona dell'anno 1630 essequita per li trattati di Cherasco l'anno 1631, nel quale s'obligò il Re di Francia di cavare la sua soldatescha e gente dalle piazze, che occupava nel Piemonte senza riguardo di commettere una così chiara et evidente contravventione alla d.a pace, obligò con minacce e violenza il Sig. Duca Vittorio Amadeo a consignarle la Piazza di Pinarolo, soto vari pretesti di vendite e cambii con altre Piazze, che non hanno havuto alcun effetto, per non esserci mai stata altra intentione che di dare colore ad una tanta ingiustitia...". "Pertanto volendo Sua Maestà continuar questa Real protettione, che sempre ha tenuto della Casa di Savoia, e conoscendo che humanamente non c'è altro rimedio per liberare li suoi Prencipi, et sudditi dalla lagrimevole oppressione nella qual si trovano, che occupar Piazze e posti nel Piemonte non con fine che habbino da restare a Sua Maestà Cattolica, ma ben s' da scaciare da questa Provincia li Francesi...". Fascicolo costituito da dodici pp. in-4.
1638.

Vera Relatione
Lodovico Grignani, 1638. 4° (203x150 mm). [4] ll. Woodcut vignette on title, showing a coastal town; woodcut decorative initial. Unbound. Unsignificant loss to the lower blank corner of l. A2, otherwise an excellent copy. Rare, and remarkable account of the Calabrian earthquake of March 1638, published close to the events on the basis of epistolary sources and other first-hand reports. The work provides much information on its effects on the inhabitants and on the very heavy damage suffered by the buildings. A testimony of the 1638 earthquake is reported also by Athanasius Kircher, who had directly observed its devastating effects at Sant?Eufemia, as attests the preface to his Mundus Subterraneus.

Karl Ludwig von der Pfalz, Kurfürst.
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. 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. Erb: undt Successions Recht, an den Chur- undt Fürstenthumben der Pfaltzgraffschafft bey Rhein, deren Recht, Session, Stimm, Wahl Landt undt Leuthen". - Die vom VD 17 verzeichnete französische Ausgabe 1638 weicht in Titelgestaltung und Kollation der Vorstücke ab; vorliegend offenbar eine Titelauflage jener Ausgabe nur hinsichtlich des paginierten Textes. Dagegen ist unser Exemplar mit Ausnahme des Druckjahrs bis in den Fingerprint identisch mit 14:078634X (hier: vnSi u-ux e"e" pade 3 1638R), welches demzufolge wohl eine Titelauflage des vorliegenden Drucks darstellt. - Etwas knittrig. Am vorderen Innendeckel Buchhändlermarke "Rudolphi & Klemm", Zürich. Vgl. VD 17, 12:126043R (Variante 1638) und 14:078634X (1639).

Erpenius, Thomas.
1638. Large 8vo. (16), 184, (48) pp. Title printed in red and black with woodcut vignette in red and black. Contemp. limp vellum. "A scholar's issue, with 5 prefatory leaves" (Smitskamp): the first of three versions distinguished by Smitskamp of the third edition of the "Rudimenta". As the earlier editions (first: 1620; second, posthumously: 1628), this is printed in the beautiful Arabic type of Savary de Brèves. Erpenius (1584-1624), professor of oriental languages at Leiden, "is one of the men whom the study of oriental languages owes its resurrection [...] He set up his own printing shop with Hebrew, Arabic, Syrian, Ethiopian, and Turkish type" (cf. ADB). Until well into the 19th century his works, published in numerous editions, remained the foundation of Arabic language teaching in the west. - Old ownership of Bernard Marin Bottelko on title and final page (the latter repaired by a former owner). Occasional insignificant browning and waterstaining to margins. Aboussouan 310. Goldsmith E 273. CLC E 524. Duverdier, Impressions, 201. Schnurrer 69. Silvestre de Sacy 2769. Smitskamp 281.

(Ali Albencufian) [i.e., Miguel de Luna].
1638. 8vo. 174 pp. With engr. 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 Eugène Vignat (1815-95), Mayor of Orléans and Député of Lorient. A good copy. Rare. Goldsmith A 275. OCLC 771039115. Not in Barbier. Not in Brunet.

CHURCH OF SCOTLAND, General Assembly] JOHNSTON, Archibald, Lord Warriston]
first edition, second issuesmall 4to.[16]pp., attractive woodcut on title page, large woodcut initial letter border at the beginning of text, type ornaments at beginning and end of text, handsome late 19th or early 20th century binding of rich tan crushed morocco signed by Riviere & Son in the richly gilt inner dentelles, marbled endpapers, spine lettered gilt. Fine copy.Very rare.STC 22047.5ESTC S116942 (locating copies in Edinburgh University Library, Mitchel Library Glasgow, Cambridge, Oxford, York Minster, and in the U.S in the Huntington Library, Folger Shakespeare Library, Newberry Library, Harvard and Princeton). This, the first book printed in Glasgow, exists in two forms: (a) with the word 'intruded' as catchword on A2r and as first word on A2v, and (b) with quire A partially reset to make the word 'of' the catchword on A2r and the first word of A2v. A variant of (a) exists with quire A wrongly printed so that the first word on A2v is 'of'. From 1560 when the reformed Church of Scotland was established along Presbyterian lines the fortunes of Scottish Presbyterians ebbed and flowed with the determination of successive Stuart kings' to make the Kirk episcopal. The policy of the powerful James VI and I was ratified by the Scottish Parliament which established episcopacy in 1612. However the imposition of a new Prayer Book brought the conflict between the Kirk and Charles I to a head in 1637. In 1638 a National Covenant on Presbyterain principles was subscribed and the General Assembly meeting at Glasgow, the first free assembly for thirty years, swept episcopacy aw … [Click Below for Full Description]

Knolles, Richard.
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 great history of the Turks by Knolles (c. 1550-1610), the prose of which earned the praise of Samuel Johnson, and was later utilised by such travellers as Byron [...] The fine medallion portraits of the Turkish kings, emperors and sultans together with their (mostly) Christian adversaries, were adapted by Laurence Johnson from Jean Jacques Boissard's 'Vitae et Icones Sultanorum' (1596)" (Blackmer 919). "The recent victories of Mahomet III over the Christians must have rendered the Turkish question of vital interest to the security of Europe, and the struggle remained in the balance till the end of the seventeenth century" (Hind II, 36-38). - 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 ric … [Click Below for Full Description]

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