(Bible, N.T., Greek)
Genève: Pierre Aubert, 1638. First edition of the New Testament translated into modern Greek. Bilingual text (Koiné and Modern Greek) in two columns. [24], 452; [1]-314, [2] ff. Volume II: leaf 4a2 (i.e., 278) largely torn away and with two later blank leaves inserted, 4a3 (i.e. 279) defective at lower gutter, with some narrow loss of text. 2 vols. 4to. First Edition of the New Testament in Modern Greek. First edition of the New Testament translated into modern Greek. An important and attractive publication, sponsored by the States General of Holland to foster amity between the Greek and Reformed Churches. The modern Greek was prepared by the monk, Maximus of Gallipoli, and the edition was authorized by the Patriarch of Constantinople, Cyril Lucarius, who contributed a Preface. The edition is reported to have consisted of some 1500 copies. The rationale behind the preparation of this text was much the same as the impetus leading to the publication by Elzevier of a modern Greek translation of the Dutch Reformed Catechism in 1648. Darlow & Moule 4958; Cathedral Libraries Catalogue b1500. Contemporary mottled calf, rebacked, with much of the original gilt backstrip and labels laid down, gilt monogram on boards, marbled endsheets. Woodcut device on title-page, woodcut initials and head and tail pieces. Calf treated at some point early on with a darkening agent, bookplates and blindstamps (in corner of each title) of the "Society for the Home Study of Holy Scripture and Church History," irrelevant bookseller's description pasted to front endpaper of first volume.

MITELLI Agostino
in-4 oblungo (mm 190x264), 12 tavole, bella legatura coeva in pergamena floscia, i piatti adorni di riquadro di filetti con 8 fregi agli angoli (stella e 3 monti, stemma della famiglia Albani; un Francesco Albani, Bologna 1578-1660 fu pittore di fama formatosi alla scuola dei Carracci, fu attivo a Roma e Bologna). Il frontespizio inciso è costituito da una composizione in forma di rebus nella quale il nome dell'artista è formata da vari attrezzi a forma di lettere con numerazione progressiva. Le 11 tavole raffigurano ognuna un busto maschile ed uno femminile con elaborate e stravaganti acconciature e copricapi ed elmi, alcuni con straordinarie estensioni antropomorfe e zoomorfe. Le tavole (3), (11) e (12) sono firmate "A.M.F." Serie di capricci di grande fantasia e raffinatezza, inventata ed incisa da Agostino, padre di Giuseppe Maria Mitelli (Battidizzo 1609 - Madrid 1660), noto pittore esponente della "quadratura" ed autore di poche e rarissime serie di incisioni fantastiche. La data sulla prima tavola è da leggersi 1638, in quanto Agostino morì nel 1660 e la datazione 1688 è assai improbabile a causa del cambiamento della moda. Alcune tavole derivano dalla serie di 20 tavole dell'orafo Denis (Daniel) Boutemie, poste in vendita da Moncornet a Parigi nel 1636 "Ouvrage rare et nouveau.. Contenant plusieurs desseins de merveilleuse recreation .. sous diuerses caprices et gentillesses representees en l'industrieuse decoupure d'un chappeau en l'industrieuse decoupure d'un chapeau.." (1636). Le tavole furono inventate "en faueur des studieux et curieux de la pourtraicture et de … [Click Below for Full Description]

Twenty-four of the Psalms are ‘Set to new Tunes for private Devotion: and a thorow Base, for Voice, or Instrument’ by Henry Lawes (1596-1662), ‘the most famous songwriter of his age’ and a friend of Milton (Oxford DNB); probably intended for performance by the Chapel Royal, they are the first works by Lawes to appear in print.

Light browning and spotting of text, inner margin with scattered light rust spotting, leaf K4 with tear in blank fore-margin outside text, closed tear in Aa2 without loss, corners of first two leaves frayed. Provenance: illegible ink signature to half-title and lower pastedown, faint old stamp to first title. A very good copy in an untouched contemporary binding. ---- Caillet 4036; Ferguson I, p. 284; Gardner 237; NLM/Krivatsy 4140; Shaaber F150; Wellcome 2331. FIRST EDITION. This is Robert Fludd's last (posthumous) work, the mature expression of his philosophy. In it, deeply informed by arguments drawn from alchemical and cabbalistic sources, he delves into the mystical origins of all things, which he believed built upon the three primary elements of darkness, light, and the waters or the Spirit of the Lord. A significant thinker in the Rosicrucian tradition, he had earlier written against Kepler's criticisms of his theories. This cosmogenic work is significant in part simply because it does delve into the origins of the universe in a quasi-scientific fashion, and Fludd's thought, while flawed, was profound an … [Click Below for Full Description]

Printed by M. F[lesher] for Iohn Marriot, and are to be sold at his shop in Saint Dunstans Church-yard in Fleet-street, 1638. 8vo. [vi], 188, [xiv]. 3 parts in 1. Black letter, titles and prefaces in Roman. First title within double rule border, woodcut initials, woodcut and typographical head pieces and ornaments, "Mary Freeman her Book 1715" on front free endpaper, the same dated "1733" on verso. Light age yellowing, margins of title page fractionally dusty, small section torn away from blank lower margin of M4 with loss of signature letter, miniscule wormhole in upper margin, occasional marginal thumb mark. A very good copy, crisp and clean in contemporary calf, covers bordered with triple blind rule, ink stain to upper cover, spine ends worn, a.e.r. Very rare, probably second edition of this hugely important and fascinating cookery book, one of only a handful of surviving copies of any of the early editions, and one of the first cookbooks to establish cookery as a fashion, rather than simply a practical guide to running a household. The work is divided into three parts, each with its own title page, the first two on new recipes for cooking, and the third "a New Booke of Carving and sewing". In its prefaces and its dedications (to Mrs Martha Hayes in the first book and to Lady Browne in the second) the author disparages previous cookery books "the most of which nevertheless have instructed rather how to marre than to make good Meate". Murrell's work was new in that it established a new spirit of cookery as 'Fashion', and fashion as characteristic of the cosmopolitan life … [Click Below for Full Description]

The whole engraving consists of two superimposed separate views. On the top is a battle on the banks of the Scheldt, the right is a church; in the shallow water drift some sailing boats and many drowning soldiers. The bottom image is drawn in the form of a map with a view on the Scheldt; here are shown fortifications and many fighting soldiers. On the bottom of the pictures is the legend: 1-18. In 1638 Cardinal Infante Ferdinand, governor of the Spanish Netherlands, fought successfully against the Dutch and French armies. Finally, he was able to expel the invaders from the land. The Dutch built some hills around the Scheldt. In the battle which sparked by an attack of the Spaniards against these buildings, many soldiers were drowned, but the hills were finally able to be occupied by the Spaniards. This collision occurred in the 1638. Etching on paper, lower border trimmed on platemark; total: 297 x 372 mm. PH4F

Beverwyck, (Beverwijck) Johan van
Leyden, Elsevir, 1638, 12, (16), 305, (15) pp., Pergamenteinband der Zeit feines Exemplar. First Medical Treatise to contain an Endorsement of Harvey's Discovery! The rare first edition of Johan van Beverwijck's (1594-1647) monograph present in the first book (pp. 1-208) Beverwijck's treatise on calculi in the kidney and bladder. The second part (pp. 209-305) contains letters addressed by Beverwijck to some prominent physicians, including Nuñez, Back, Saumaise, and Zacuto whom he consulted on that subject, along with their replies. Several consilia by Sanctorius, Spiegel, Horst, and others follow. At the end of 1637 Beverwyck wrote a letter to Harvey in which he expressed his admiration for Harvey's discovery of blood circulation. At the same time he sent him a copy of the present book. It is the first medical treatise to contain an endorsement of Harvey's discovery, a remarkable fact in view of the negative attitude within the academic circles in Holland. The passage in question "Harvei doctrina de Circulatione sanguinus comprobata" (pp.20-24) is discussed by Walter Pagel in his William Harvey's Biological Ideas (1967), who reproduces the title-page of our book and two pages of the passage on Harvey. Harvey replied to Beverwijck's letter in April 1638, praising his book as "learned and elegant, and truly original." Osler notes the significance of Beverwyck's correspondence with Harvey but was unable to obtain a copy of this rare book. Beverwijck , was born in Dordrecht on 17 November 1594. He was the son of Bartholomeus van Beverwijck ( -1615), a textile trader, … [Click Below for Full Description]
