As regards restoration, leather starts failing after 100 years depending on usage. Any large Bible exceeding this age almost invariably will need the front and back covers reattached to the body of the Bible using new leather. In this case all new archival leather has been used in the rebind. On display is a unique example of a 1638 King James Bible. This volume has had a rough life and while having been saved from the dustbin of history, it never the less shows its hard knocks. The cover both front and back were able to be saved using the original leather. It of course has been rebound. This is a one of a kind volume having survived for almost 400 years. One of the more unique and ultra rare features that make this volume one of a kind is the flowerlets impressed onto both the front and back covers on the 4 corners. Rarely has this been seen on any early 1600's Bible. Foxing is present throughout and is an expected condition of age. The cover is a deep walnut brown leather with the spine showing the title "Holy Bible" on a scarlet red leather backdrop. The spine shows 4 raised bands. Both boards and spine are firmly attached and the book is tight and put together very well. It has been rebound with new leather where existing leather was missing putting it in excellent condition. As mentioned above, archival quality leather was used in order to add longevity to the binding. The original boards were used in order to maintain the integrity of the Bible. This is a beautiful example of an early 1600's Bible. It measures 6 1/2" x 43/4" x 2 1/2" and weighs just under 2 pounds. It … [Click Below for Full Description]

Willem Janszoon BLAEU (Uitgeest 1571- Amsterdam 1638)
1638. Mappa delle Antille che si estende dalla Virginia alla foce dell'Orinoco, destinata a essere rieditata in varie forme da molti altri editori. Il cartiglio del titolo in alto a sinistra è incorniciato da una serie di animali della fauna locale. La mappa di Blaeu deriva da quella di Hessel Gerritsz del 1631. La nomenclatura della porzione del Nord America presente è praticamente identica, l'unica aggiunta degna di nota è la denominazione della Virginia. Riflette le nuove scoperte di Gerritsz durante il suo viaggio in Sud America e nelle Indie Occidentali intrapreso nel 1628. General map of the West Indies extending from Virginia to the mouth of the Orinoco, and destined to be copied in various shapes by many other publishers. Title cartouche top left incorporates various local fauna. This is a derivative of Hessel Gerritsz' chart of c. 1631. The nomenclature of the North American part is virtually identical, the only notable addition being the naming of Virginia. It reflects the firsthand knowledge of Gerritsz during his voyage to South America and the West Indies undertaken in 1628.

BARENGHI Giovanni - Anti galileiana
FRANCESCO DELLA DOTE, 1638. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena con titolo manoscritto al dorso, restauro integrativo alla parte inferiore del dorso con interessamento agli angoli dei piatti; titolo manoscritto al taglio inferiore; guardie sostituite. Frontespizio figurato a firma di A.F. Nicolao con titolo e dedica a Giovanni de Medici inscrittti all'interno di edicola di carattere militare; ampi restauri integrativi lungo il bordo destro; 10 pagine non numerate, compreso altro frontespizio editoriale con titolo e marca tipografica a silografia; 216-(4) pagine numerate. All'interno, numerosi capolettera e sporadici grafici eseguiti a silografia. Prima edizione. L'opera, prevista i tre libri non vede che la pubblicazione solo del primo in quanto l'autore venne a mancare nel frattempo. Nel testo Barenghi difende in chiave anti galileana le teorie di Aristotele sulla cosmologia. Nonostante il Dialogo fosse stato messo all'indice nel 1633 evidentemente Barenghi potè consultarlo in quanto nel testo in esame ne vengono riportati con esattezza ampi stralci. Volume raro, l'ultima asta in cui ne è comparso un esemplare fu l'asta Honeyman del 1978. Esemplare in discrete condizioni, oltre ai difetti già descritti alla legatura e al frontespizio figurato, si riscontra un piccolo foro risarcito al frontespizio editoriale, in alto; una antica menda di chiusura di piccoli strappetti in alto alla pagina 10 non numerata, lontano dal testo; modesti forellini di tarlo all'angolo inferiore delle ultime carte, lontano dal testo.

RARE Jewish Exegetical & Apology Abravanel A rare, first Latin edition of Maimonides' 'Sepher Ha-Madah' or "The Book of Knowledge." This 1638 printing is paired with Isaac Abravanel's commentary "Liber capita fidei". These two Judaica works were edited by Wilhelm Heinrich Vorstius, a friend of Menasseh Ben Israel. Vorstius, a Christian, had trouble accepting the ideas expressed by Maimonides, even though Maimonides philosophical ideas in his works helped systematize and influence Jewish thought. Each title page includes Hebrew title above the Latin title. [Attributes: First Edition]

As regards restoration, leather starts failing after 100 years depending on usage. Any large Bible exceeding this age almost invariably will need the front and back covers reattached to the body of the Bible using new leather. In this case all new archival leather has been used in the rebind. On display is a unique example of a 1638 King James Bible. This volume has had a rough life and while having been saved from the dustbin of history, it never the less shows its hard knocks. The cover both front and back were able to be saved using the original leather. It of course has been rebound. This is a one of a kind volume having survived for almost 400 years. One of the more unique and ultra rare features that make this volume one of a kind is the flowerlets impressed onto both the front and back covers on the 4 corners. Rarely has this been seen on any early 1600's Bible. Foxing is present throughout and is an expected condition of age. The cover is a deep walnut brown leather with the spine showing the title "Holy Bible" on a scarlet red leather backdrop. The spine shows 4 raised bands. Both boards and spine are firmly attached and the book is tight and put together very well. It has been rebound with new leather where existing leather was missing putting it in excellent condition. As mentioned above, archival quality leather was used in order to add longevity to the binding. The original boards were used in order to maintain the integrity of the Bible. This is a beautiful example of an early 1600's Bible. It measures 6 1/2" x 43/4" x 2 1/2" and weighs just under 2 pounds. It … [Click Below for Full Description]

Chez Pierre Billaine, 1638. 6to. [xxiv], 120, [2] pp. Engraved frontis. (by Pierre Daret), 25 engraved copper plates (1 double-page). Original full blind-stamped calf, spine with gilt rules and title; spine neatly replaced, extremities rubbed. Bookplates of Newbattle Abbey Library, [First] Earl of Ancram [Sir Robert Kerr (c. 1578-1654)] and the Honorable William Marquiss of Lothian (General William John Kerr, 5th Marquess of Lothian, 1737-1815). Fine. ANAMORPHOSES AND THE THEORY OF PERSPECTIVE. First edition, with a fine provenance, of Niceron's important treatise on perspective, geometrical optics, and anamorphic projection, which gains added significance in the history of science for containing (in Book IV) "perhaps the first published reference to Descartes' derivation of the law of refraction (1638) and thus gains some historical significance" - DSB. / The work is famous for its study of the application of illusion to optical science: "The classic phase of anamorphosis, during which it came to relate vitally to a series of scientific and theological concerns, occurred in France and Rome in the 1630s and 1640s. The theorist at the centre of the Paris-Rome developments was Jean-Francois Niceron" - Kemp. / "This richly illustrated manual on perspective revealed for the first time the secrets of anamorphosis and trompe l'oeil. It contained the first published reference to Descartes's derivation of the law of refraction. First published in 1638 with 25 plates only, Niceron's work was later enlarged by Roberval in a far inferior edition (1663). Divided into four Books, the f … [Click Below for Full Description]

Auf Reisen und längeren Studienaufenthalten in Italien, England und Frankreich knüpfte er zahlreiche wissenschaftliche Kontakte. Er *stand mit fast allen berühmten Gelehrten seiner Zeit in Verbindung und galt selbst für ein Orakel der Gelehrsamkeit* (Schröder). *Als Handschriftenforscher, Historiker, Humanist und Bibliothekar zählte (er) zu den angesehensten Wissenschaftlern im Rom des 17.

R[ANDOLPH], T[homas], attributed.
London. Apud Tho. Harperum. Et vaæneunt per Tho. Slaterum, & Laurentium Chapman 1638. 12mo. [20], 142, [2], with a fine additional engraved title-page by William Marshall of the main character standing in a sweating tub, and the terminal errata leaf, but wanting the blanks A1 and A12; a very good copy in modern full calf.First edition, a Plautine medical comedy, probably written for performance at Cambridge in the 1630s. It is often attributed to Thomas Randolph with revisions by Richard Brathwaite, but he is not otherwise known for Latin drama and the attribution is by no means secure; other candidates include his contemporary Thomas Ryley. The grave-robbing scene is similar to one in Randolph's Jealous Lovers (1632), and there are several allusions to another medical comedy, Ruggle's Ignoramus (1615).Cornelius and all the members of his household are syphilitic, the consequence of a life of whore-mongering. Contrary to all expectations he is cured by a Neapolitan stranger, then spreads a rumour of his own death, in order to exact a revenge on the thieves Lurcano and Latruculus, who are in league with the loose women who brought Cornelius low. When they come to rob Cornelius's grave, he rises from the dead, and they are driven mad and sent to bedlam; the whores are sent to Bridewell and Cornelius becomes a patron of learning. The engraving features Cornelius in a bath, taking the sweating cure for syphilis known as 'Cornelius's Tub' after Cornelius Agrippa. On the left are three women, whom Cornelius is dismissing – 'Valete o Veneris Cupidinesque' – and on the right a tabl … [Click Below for Full Description]

Maimonides, Moses; Isaac Abarbanel; Wilhelm Heinrich Vorstius (trans. by)
Amsterdam: Guiliel & Iohannem Blaeu (Willem & Johannes Blaeu), 1638. First edition. Hardcover. vg to vg+. Octavo. 7.5x6". [7] 148pp. 118pp. [9]. Brown calf with blind-stamped ruling along the edges of the covers. Raised bands and two small paper labels with handwriting in ink at the head & tail of the spine. Covers protected by modern mylar. Edges of the book block in red. The work contains two early Latin-Hebrew translations of Rabbinic literature and Jewish thought by Wilhelm Heinrich Vorstius, bound together. They are considered the first published Latin-Hebrew translations of these works. The initial title is the first Latin translation of Rabbi Moses Maimonides' "Sepher Yesode ha-Torah", which comprises the first part of the first book of his monumental work known as the Mishneh Torah. These writings specifically deal with the subjects of belief in God and other Jewish principles of faith. The second bound work is Rabbi Isaac Abarbanel's "Rosh Emunah" (The Pinnacle of Faith), here translated as "Liber de Capite Fidei". This work acts as a defense of, and commentary on Maimonides' "Thirteen Principles of Jewish Faith", as discussed in the preceding work. The first work includes both Hebrew and Latin together in single column text lines throughout, and also includes some pages in a two column format with Latin on one side and Hebrew on the opposite. The second work contains mostly Latin text, with occasional words in Hebrew in single column format, as well as a few pages in dual columns.

Davanzati, Bernardo.
Nella nuova Stamperia del Massi, e Landi, 1638. Rara prima edizione della collezione delle opere storico-economiche di Bernardo Davanzati (1529-1606), personaggio di primo piano della cultura del Cinquecento fiorentino. Mercante e letterato, compose rime, lettere, orazioni e volgarizzamenti (tra questi la sua opera più importante, la traduzione degli 'Annali' di Tacito). Fece parte dell'Accademia fiorentina, dell'Accademia degli Alterati, divenendone reggente, e infine dell'Accademia della Crusca, collaborando alla stesura del primo celebre 'Vocabolario'. L'ampiezza dei suoi interessi lo condusse a comporre contributi di varia natura, raccolti nella silloge qui presentata. Apre il volume l'opera di carattere storiografico 'Scisma d'Inghilterra fino alla morte della reina Maria', traduzione compendiata del 'De origine ac progressu schismatis anglicani' del gesuita Nicolò Sandero. Seguono due scritti eminentemente economici: la 'Notizia de' Cambi' e la 'Lezione della moneta' (letta dal Davanzati, pubblicamente, all'Accademia fiorentina). Segue poi la sezione dedicata alle orazioni: la più celebre, l''Orazione in morte del Gran Duca Cosimo I', e le due, notevoli, pronunciate all'Accademia degli Alterati, 'Accusa data dal Silente al Travagliato nel suo sindacato della Reggenza degli Alterati' e 'Orazione in genere deliberativo sopra i Provveditori dell'Accademia degli Alterati'. Chiude il volume un altro scritto economico, la 'Coltivazione toscana delle Viti e d'alcuni Arbori'.

O. O. u. Dr., 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.

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).
