Levant]. Campo, Luis del.
Rare relation of a sea engagement in the Levant, between 14 Turkish ships against one Spanish vessel. 1638. Madrid. Diego Diaz de la Carrera. In folio (280 mm x 200 mm). 2 ff. Unbound. Minor spotting, and toning, else fine; old foliation. Very rare imprint, giving news of the sea engagement between a Spanish vessel and 14 Turkish ships; the careful detail in which the author narrates the events –number of pieces of artillery shot, damages suffered in the ship, flags displayed, the difficulty of navigation during the evening, and others- is remarkable. The Spanish went back to Gibraltar, when heard news of the sinking of one of the 14 Turkish ships. Luis del Campo sailed under order of General Roque Centeno (1568 - 1641), who would be Captain General of the fleet of the Indies. Palau, 258139. [Attributes: First Edition]

Sandys, George.
London: [Printed by John Legatt, sold] at the Bell in St. Pauls Church-yard [i.e., the shop of Andrew Hebb] Folio (27.8 cm; 11"). [22], 55, [13], 171, [1], 15, [3], 33, [1] pp.. 1638 First edition of this collection of poetry inspired by Job, Psalms, Ecclesiastes, Lamentations, and various songs in the Old and New Testaments, published with commendatory poems from Henry King, Sidney Godolphin, Thomas Carew, and Edmund Waller. One section, The Paraphrase upon the Psalmes of David, separately published in 1636, here => appears for the first time with accompanying music by Henry Lawes, who set the verse of many Cavalier poets to music; Sandys certainly was friends with several of that circle embracing members of the Tribe of Ben, as is seen by their above-mentioned poems of acclaim. He is also, commonly, placed in the group of 17th-century poets centered on Michael Drayton. Sometime courtier, foreign service officer, and American colonist, curious traveller and travel writer, and committed translator and poet, Sandys (1578–1644) => spent some years as treasurer for the English colony in Virginia, in which period he completed an English translation of Ovid's Metamorphosis that had been encouraged in verse by Drayton and was praised by Dryden and Pope. The diverse couplets distinguishing this Paraphrase upon the Divine Poems — not straitly "heroic" in the 18th-century style but typically muscular and elegant in ways looking forward to that — well show why he was admired and imitated for his achievements in the form. As with some other copies, p.13 has a very neat interlinear man … [Click Below for Full Description]

Frambotti, 1638-40. 4to (222 x 160mm). pp. (14), 144; 4, 54; (8), 80, (4), with 73 partly full-page woodcuts in the text (Together with:) VESLING, J. Opobalsami veteribus cogniti vindiciae & Paraeneses Ad rem herbariam. Padua, P. Frambotti, 1644 (each with a separately printed title). pp. (24), 108. Contemporary vellum. A fine and well preserved copy of this attractively illustrated flora. First edition with Vesling's commentaries, comprising the second edition of Alpini's work on Egyptian plants and his tract on balsam (first 1592), both edited by Vesling, along with his own work which forms a supplement to Alpini. Alpini's work was the first treatment of the plants of Egypt. He accompanied the Venetian consul to Egypt as his personal physician, residing there from 1580 to 1583. He was the first European to mention the coffee plant, and the first to record the sexual differences of the date-palm tree. Alpini was Director of the Botanic Garden at Padua (1603-1616) and Johann Vesling was director of the same garden from 1638 to 1649.Vesling served as physician to Alvise Cornaro during the latter's term as Venetian representative in Cairo. The two men left for Egypt at the beginning of August 1628. Vesling studied the flora of the country with great interest. In many cases his observations were more accurate than those previously made by Prospero Alpini, and his book on the subject is also better illustrated than the latter's. Of particular interest are his … [Click Below for Full Description]

Church of England. Book of Common Prayer. Greek.
Londini: Typis Tho. Cotes pro Richardo Whitakero 8vo (16.1 cm, 6.5"). [262] pp. (lacking prelim. blank f.). [?1A4?4(-?1) ?4?4 ¶4¶¶4¶¶¶1 B–N4 A–04 P2].. 1638 First Greek translation of the entire Liturgy, including the Psalter, done by Elias Petley from the 1604 English Prayer Book. The Oxford Guide to the Book of Common Prayer describes this work as "reflecting an interest in Anglican-Orthodox union being promoted by Archbishop Laud and the Greek Patriarch Cyril Lucar"; the volume is dedicated to Laud. The main title-page is printed in red and black; the separate title-page for the Psalter has a neat woodcut printer's vignette and blazons (in Greek type) Psalterion prophetou kai basileos tou Dabid. The elegant Greek type is set in double columns, with some nicely laid in typographic ornaments and decorated capitals. The signing is erratic, but the collation of this example matches most recorded descriptions: Leaf ?1, apparently a cancel in a few copies but lacking in most reported examples and not present here, was a supplemental title-page giving Biblos d?mosi?n euch?n, kai leitourg?se?s myst?ri?n; Griffiths calls for only one preliminary leaf, as is found here, with the other leaf in the gathering being a blank. Leaf 1C2 is a cancel. Provenance: Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Twistleton Fiennes, with that family's motto: "Fortem posce animum"; front free endpaper rubber-stamped "Birch" and front fly-leaf inked "Tho.s Birch e Coll.

Church of England.
[Cambridge]: Thomas Buck & Roger Daniel Folio (35 cm, 13.75"). [96] pp. (of 104).. 1638 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. 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.

Dale, Antonius van.
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.

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 doub … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pellicer de Touar [i.e., Tovar], José.
Madrid: Por la viuda de Alonso Martin Folio (28.2 cm, 11.1"). [4], 6 ff.. 1638 Known for his Avisos históricos, Pellicer — along with other literary lights — here provides encomium, history, and genealogy on the occasion of the baptism of María Teresa of Spain. The author's name is also sometimes given as Joseph Pellicer y Ossau de Tovar (alternatively Touar/Tobar), with numerous other variants seen. This is a scarce publication: OCLC finding only one holding, in the U.K. By an interesting woman printer. Removed from a nonce volume. Light waterstaining, mostly to inner corners. Trimmed closely, with shouldernotes and first or last few letters shaved in some instances. One leaf with tear from upper margin extending into text, repaired some time ago, obscuring a few words.

Selden, John
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.

Calancha, Antonio de la
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.
