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]

NICERON, Jean Francois (1613-1646).
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]

Seltener Erstdruck dieser Sammlung antiker Sinnsprüche und Lebensweisheiten.- Bursian in ADB 12, 776 Schröder, Lex. d. hamb. Schriftsteller III, 340,4.- Der aus Hamburg gebürtige Lukas Holste [1596-1661] besuchte hier das Johanneum und ab 1615 das Gymnasium und studiert dann an der Universität Leiden. 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. Jhdts und zu den bedeutendsten Präfekten der Vatikanischen Bibliothek* (Hamb. Biografie IV,161). Auch die vorliegende Spruchsammlung beruht auf einer Handschrift der Vaticana. Von dem nicht näher identifizierbaren Demophilos sind nur die vorliegenden (neupythagoräischen?) Gnomai überliefert. Demokrates ist *einerseits vielfach mit dem Politiker Demokrates v.

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'. Mancante dell'occhiello, per il resto bell'esemplare, impreziosito da un pregevole frontespizio con x … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rare first edition of this monumental concordance of all the words in the Greek New Testament by the German philologist, theologian and mathematician Erasmus Schmidt, with an appropriate provenance. It comprises an alphabetical arrangement of every word in the the Greek New Testament in which is listed immediately after the series of passages in which it occurs. The work was of great utility to theologians not only in finding particular texts which they wished to consult but especially for ascertaining which passages are really parallel, and thus deducing the accurate meaning and interpretation of each word. The only comparable work to have been published was Henry Estienne's who completed the concordance started by his father Robert in 1594. That text was so riddled with errors that many have concluded that it cannot have been the work of Henry but to which Estie … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Brazil; Anonymous].
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. It was made from their base on the River S. Francisca" (Lathrop Harper, 166-721, 1943). Exceedingly rare, no copy has sold at auction since 1966. "This Relacion is very rare and frequently quoted" (Borba de Moraes).

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. Finely printed historiated initials at the beginning of each wo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cockle 821, note; Jähns, pp. 1093-1095; STCN (1 copy of each work, also with the 1638 title-page, the Geometria lacking its title-page); cf. Cockle 139 (English edition of 1638). First Latin editions of two richly illustrated works, on geometry and on fortification, by Samuel Marolois (1572-1627), a French mathematician who published in the Netherlands. In 1614 Hendrik Hondius at the Hague had published Marolois's four major mathematical works in French (on geometry, fortification, perspective and architecture). Janssonius brought out new editions in 1627, followed by Dutch editions (1628-1630) and finally Latin editions (1633), corrected and revised by Albert Girard. The present volume contains the geometry and fortification in the original 1633 printing, but reissued in 1638 with a general title-page originally engraved for Janssonius's French edition of all four works and with a title-slip intended for the Latin edition of all four works.The first work provides a thorough and well-illustrated course in all aspects of geometry and its application to measurement, proportion, surveying, perspective, etc. The second was the most important and equally well-illustrated textbook on fortification, a field that the Dutch pioneered at the beginning of the 17th century.Very good copies of two important works, that on fortification helping to revolutionize that field.

Janssonius brought out new editions in 1627, followed by Dutch editions (1628-1630) and finally Latin editions (1633), corrected and revised by Albert Girard. The present volume contains the geometry and fortification in the original 1633 printing, but reissued in 1638 with a general title-page originally engraved for Janssonius's French edition of all four works and with a title-slip intended for the Latin edition of all four works.The first work provides a thorough and well-illustrated course in all aspects of geometry and its application to measurement, proportion, surveying, perspective, etc. The second was the most important and equally well-illustrated textbook on fortification, a field that the Dutch pioneered at the beginning of the 17th century.Very good copies of two important works, that on fortification helping to revolutionize that field.

Beide, Gessner und Aldrovandi, gelten als die Begründer der modernen Zoologie. - Dieses Exemplar in schönem Wappeneinband stammt aus der Bibliothek des bedeutenden Hebraisten, Theologen und Bibliophilen Jean Plantavit de La Pause (1579-1651) der Hofkaplan der Königinnen von Frankreich und Spanien und Bischof von Lodève war. - Wenig gebräunt, nur etwa 6 Blätter stärker fleckig (ab Seite 398), sonst meist sehr sauber.

More translated epigrams from the 'Greek Anthology' of Maximos Planudes into Ciceronian Latin which, after circulating in manuscript, were collected by Erasmus and twice printed by Froben in 1518. They were first published separately in 1520 in an edition which was substantially revised by More for its first independent appearance and presents quite a different text. Three of the epigrams which appeared in the 1518 printing were omitted and thirteen new ones added. Remarkably this is the only separate printing of these epigrams since that edition of 1520, and even more … [Click Below for Full Description]

D'ESPAGNET Jean
S. e, 1638. In 24, cm 6 x 10,3, pp. 142 + (2) + 72 1 figura xilografica a p. 71 della seconda opera. Frontspizio autonomo per la seconda opera. Piena pelle cova con filetti oro ai piatti. Dorso rifatto e piccole riparazioni agli angoli. Rara seconda edizione di quest'opera pubblicata per la prima volta nel 1623 ed in seguito piu' volte ristampata. Il nome dell'autore non compare ma si desume dall'anagramma espresso dai due motti apposti ai frontespizi: 'Spes mea in agno' e 'Penes nos unda tagi'. L'autore, presidente del parlamento di Bordeaux e protagonista di molti processi per stregoneria, era considerato un'autorita' tra gli adepti delle filosofie ermetiche. I due testi trattano delle possibilita' fisiche della trasmutazione e della pietra filosofale, il diagramma posto in fine, (signifer philosophorum) collega elementi spaziali e temporali e rappresenta sintesi efficace di immutabile stabilita' e sequenza ciclica nel tempo. Graesse, 2, 472 cita la nostra edizione, indicando in D'Espagnet l'autore dei 2 testi, ma, erroneamente, fissa il 1608 come prima data di stampa. Biblioteca Magica (Casanatense) cita solo l'edizione del 1623. LAT
