Fabricus, Johann (ed.).
Rostock, heirs of Johann Richel, 1638.. 4to. (12), 235, (1) pp. Contemp. vellum.. First edition, second issue (the imprint of the first issue is dated 1637). This anthology of Arabic literature includes the first of the maqama ("sessions") of al-Hariri (d. 1122), the first published text of al-Hariri in Europe. It also contains extracts from Abu al-Ala' al-Ma'arri and Ibn al-Farid and an essay on Arabic poetry based on Golius's lectures. Johann Fabricius (1608-53) was born in Danzig and lived in Rostock where he taught philosophy. He was a pupil of the well-known professor of Arabic Jacob Golius, who encouraged him to publish the present work. As Fabricius states in the preface, the "Specimen" had already been finished six years before, but its publication was delayed due to the difficulty in obtaining Arabic types. Eventually the Arabic types, imitations of those used by Erpenius, were made in Copenhagen. - Bound in between the preliminaries and the text proper of this copy is an apparently unrecorded two-leaf printing containing a poem in Arabic by Fabricius, bearing a Latin dedication to Johann Raue, a philologist and teacher at Rostock, in honour of his appointment as professor of eloquence there on 14 February 1637. The poem offers thanks to God for having preserved the fabric of the university from destruction during the Thirty Years' War. - First few leaves slightly browned due to paper; tear in leaf R4 repaired without loss. From the library of the classical scholar and educator Friedrich Carl Rumpf (1772-1824) with his ms. ownership to front flyleaf, stricken out a … [Click Below for Full Description]

1638 - Dutch struggle for Brazil. Official account of the Dutch raid of Bahia, with a combined force of French soldiers, and natives. 1638. Madrid. 1638. Francisco Martinez. In folio (288 mm x 210 mm). 6 ff. Unbound. Some light foxing, wide margins, strong impression, excellent example. First edition. A rare and first-hand source of information on the events of the 14 June, 1638, when a combined force of Dutch, French, and recruited natives attacked the Spanish/Portuguese city of Bahia. Dutch interest in Brazil -and particularly Bahia- was cause of several incursions, as it stood as the centre of the economic power in Portuguese Brazil. The imprint starts by condemning the French and the Dutch for their greed and obstination, in joining forces with Heretics and Turks, to conquer Spanish overseas possessions. Silva, aware of Dutch presence nearby, expected the pending attack on Bahia, which was part of a larger group of actions beginning on May; Count Bagnuoli, appointed by Governor Pedro de Silva, victoriously rejected the attack. “Official account of the Dutch and French Expedition of 1,600 men against the Spanish in Bahia, in which the Spanish, under the governor Don Pedro de Silva were successful, the Dutch being driven off. The Dutch had made the River S. Francisco, midway between Bahia and Pernambuco, their base this expedition being undertaken to recapture the city” (Maggs, 211, 1926). “The Dutch had held Pernambuco and Bahia, but having lost the latter organized this expedition of 1,600 men for its recapture.

(Dominicus Germanus de Silesia, OFM).
Rome, Congreg. de Propaganda Fide, 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 a 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 Garcia Masegosa in his study "German de Silesia, Interpretatio Alcorani Litteralis, Parte I: La traduccion latina" (Madrid, 2009): "Por la misma epoca, publico un tratado religioso en arabe y en latin 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.

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.

Diego Mexia 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 cosà 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...".

ALDROVANDI, U.
Bononiae, apud C. Ferronium, 1638. Folio (352 x 223mm). pp. (14), 767, (1), (44), with engraved title and about 700 woodcuts. Contemporary vellum, spine in 7 compartments (head of spine worn). Due to the binder's mistake the title-page of Aldrovandi's work on fishes instead of the one on insects is bound in. The first edition was published in 1602. '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. [Attributes: First Edition]

Bononiae, apud C. Ferronium, 1638. Folio (340 x 230mm). pp. (8), 767, (1), (44), with engraved title and about 700 woodcuts. Later half calf, spine with red gilt lettered label and gilt ornaments. "The first work of literature in the world dealing with insects, thus finally establishing entomology, and especially systematic entomology as a science. Objects from this collection were taken as illustrations; these recognizable, well-cut wood engravings, though rather primitive, were numerous. They contained the first known dichotomic key for determination of the higher groups, which are all morphologically defined... A special chapter was devoted to the morphology of the insect body. Metamorphosis and reproduction has been described excellently and supplemented with notes... The abundance of species of this book, mainly relating to the fauna of northern Italy, is astonishingly high; for instance 81 different species of Lepidoptera are delineated. In this volume the total literature up to his day was used by Aldrovandi almost to exhaustion" (Smith, R.F. History of entomology pp. 85-86).

Robert Burton
Oxford: Printed for Henry Cripps, 1638. Folio. 5th edition. Final edition during Burton's lifetime. 3/4 modern brown crushed Moroccan over marbled boards, gilt, red leather spine label raised bands. Fine binding and cover. [12], 78, [2], 97, 96-140, [4], 141-218, [4], 219-262, 259-723, [11], 29 cm. Title page and following page are early 20th century facsimiles of the 3rd edition. Last page and 2 pages after the frontis have been conserved. Later owners name on title page. Dampstaining, affecting text, ruffling to pages. Tears to a few pages. Scattered spotting. First published in 1621, The Anatomy of Melancholy was a landmark book in psychology. The book was presented as a medical textbook on the subject of melancholia (clinical depression). The Anatomy of Melancholy is as much a sui generis work of literature as it is a scientific or philosophical text, and Burton addresses far more than his stated subject. In fact, the Anatomy uses melancholy as the lens through which all human emotion and thought may be scrutinized, and virtually the entire contents of a 17th-century library are marshaled into service of this goal. It is encyclopedic in its range and reference. "This deeply serious work by a layman was said by Osler to be "a great medical treatise" (Osler 4621). The author, under the assumed name of Democritus Junior, offers many causes for melancholy, discusses the cure of its many forms and, in his studious discussion, throws much light on the customs and social attitudes of the day. It is a medical work in that, in all its seventy and more editions, it has continu … [Click Below for Full Description]

MERCATOR, Gerhard (1512-1594).
[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 interpreta … [Click Below for Full Description]

DELAFLEUR,N.G.
[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 'Monsù 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.
