        De Qvadrvpedibvs Solidipedibvs volvmen integrvm.

      - I.C. Vterverivs . collegit, & recensuit. H. Tambvrinvs in lucem edidit . Cum indice copiosissimo. Bononiae, N. Tebaldini, 1639. Folio (340 x 235mm). pp. (6), 495, (31), with 1 elaborately engraved title, 13 (some full-page) woodcuts and 1 woodcut printer's device. Later half calf, spine in 5 compartments with red and blue gilt lettered label. Second Bologna edition of this work on quadrupeds, which was published posthumously as many of his other works. The volume is devoted to 'solid-hooved' quadrupeds, such as horses, zebras, elephants, centaurs, etc. and features several fine woodcuts, many from drawings by Jacopo Ligozzi. Included among the illustrations are cuts of a unicorn horn and a remarkable one of petrified elephant's catarrh. "Although Aldrovandi is not identified with any revolutionary discoveries, his work as a teacher and as the author of volumes that constitute an irreplacable cultural patrimony earns him a place among the fathers of modern science. Perhaps most importantly he was among the first to attempt to free the natural sciences from the stifling influence of the authority of textbooks, for which he substituted, as far as possible, direct study and observation of the animal, vegetable, and mineral worlds" (D.S.B. I, pp. 108-110). Some old paper repair on verso of title and some browning as is usual with this work.Nissen ZBI, 72 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Mirrour Which Flatters Not. Dedicated to their Maiesties of Great Britaine, by Le Sieur de la Serre, Historiographer of France. Enriched with Faire Figures. Transcrib'd English from the French, by T.C. And Devoted to the Well-Disposed Readers

      London: Printed by E.P. for R. Thrale, 1639. First edition in English of this classic meditation on fame and death, first published in French in 1632. Picking up where the medieval Dance of Death tradition left off, the essay is packed with historical examples of leaders who knew (or did not know) how to die, ultimately striking a balance between the levelling effect of death and an emerging humanist ideal: "Remember that you are Men, but more marvelous without comparison, then the Sunne; since your Reason is a divine light." The four striking full-page plates depict great men grappling with their own mortality: "Philip King of Macedon comanded one of his Pages to Awake him every Morning, & Call aloud to him SIR Remember that You are a MAN." The Mirrour Which Flatters Not was printed by Elizabeth Purslowe, widow of the printer George Purslowe, who produced almost 150 titles in her fourteen years running the press. STC 20490a. A near-fine copy of a compelling Renaissance conduct manual. Octavo, contemporary full calf rebacked, triple fillet border in blind and gilt, central gilt ornament to both boards, endpapers renewed (with window to front pastedown, revealing contemporary owner signature), edges speckled red. Complete with engraved frontispiece of Death, rare "Designe of the Frontispice" leaf, dedicatory material after title page, four full-page engraved plates, woodcut headpieces, translator's notes at rear, final imprimatur leaf. Seventeenth-century ink ownership inscription of physician Thomas Wharton to front pastedown; eighteenth-century inscription "Mary Woodyeare Booke" to verso of front fly leaf; nineteenth-century ink ownership inscription and twentieth-century exlibris stamp to front fly leaf; bookseller notations in pencil to front fly leaf; tiny ink notation to corner of A1.

        Discurso de los Tufos, Copetes y Calvas. Dirigido al Principe de las Eternidades Jesus Nazareno, Rey de Reyes, y Señor de Señores.

      Impreso en Baeça, por Juan de la Cuesta, 1639. - in-4. 8ff. 65ff. chiffrés. 1f. Plein vélin souple du temps. Edition Originale très rare de cet ouvrage curieux imprimé dans la ville andalouse de Baeza. C'est une dénonciation virulente des coiffures à la mode: touffes, franges, perruques, toupets et moustaches, autant de signes réprouvables de coquetterie masculine que l'auteur s'attarde à pourfendre sans relâche avec une verve particulièrement savoureuse. L'auteur Jimenez Patón (1569-1640) fut un humaniste espagnol, ami de Lope de Vega et auteur de nombreux ouvrages d'érudition sur divers sujets, certains très curieux. L'ouvrage contient à la fin une poésie (8pp.) du grand Quevedo favorable à la réforme des habits de la noblesse espagnole, et une lettre de félicitations (1p.) de Lope de Vega adressée à son ami l'auteur. Inscriptions manuscrites ancienne sur un feuillet de garde. Papier un peu bruni. Bon exemplaire dans son vélin souple d'origine. Juan de la Cuesta était le fils du principal imprimeur de Baeza Pedro de la Cuesta, cf. Herrera Morillas "Los impresos publicados en Jaén del CCPB". [Attributes: First Edition]

        America sive India Nova ad magnae Gerardi Mercatoris aui Vniversalis imitationem in compendium redacta

      [Amsterdam: Hondius, 1639. Copper-engraved map, French text on verso. Roundels at each corner with inset maps of the Gulf of Mexico, Cuba and Hispaniola, the remaining containing the cartouche. A fine example of one of the most celebrated maps of the Americas, the only printed map by Gerard Mercator's grandson Michael. Made by Gerard's grandson Michael to complete the atlas ( Atlantis Pars Altera ) begun by Gerard in 1584, this map is noted for its outstanding design and beauty, particularly its symmetrical configuration of circular insets and Mannerist flow of vines, flowers and leaves surrounding the circular map. Largely based on Rumold Mercator's world map of 1587, this map aptly reflects 16th-century knowledge, theories and suppositions regarding the New World. Naturally, most of this new knowledge was coastal, and configurations of any large areas were greatly hampered by the lack of a sound means of determining longitude. Nevertheless, the collective accomplishment of explorers and mapmakers represented in this map is astounding, showing in a generally correct way the vast extent of the New World. "A few of the most famous theories are still present: a large inland lake in Canada, two of the four islands of the North Pole, a bulge to the west coast of South America and the large southern continent" (Burden). The map appeared in 1595 and 1606 editions of the Atlantis Pars Altera , after which the plate was sold to Jodocus Hondius, who reissued the maps in varying editions through 1639. The present example includes French text on verso (confirming it to be a Hondius issue), but is apparently an unrecorded variant without a signature mark on verso.

        Uranometria ? (Single star chart)

      Bayer Uranometria Celestial Chart. The constellation Serpens from the second edition of Johann Bayaer?s Uranometria... (Augsburg, Christophorus Mangus, 1639 or later. Fine condition, good margins, centerfold. One corner of the margin has been restored (see detail). Image is about 11 x 15 inches, sheet is about 12 ¾ x 16 ¼ inches.The verso of this chart is blank, indicating the second edition. The first edition had the star catalogue printed on the verso of the plates. The first printing of the second edition was in 1639 but because of its popularity the atlas was reprinted many times into the early 18th century. Bayer was the first to use Greek letters to name stars in each constellation (in order of magnitude) an innovation still in use today. According to Warner, Bayer used Tycho Brahe?s catalogue of stars for stellar positions. The constellation Serpens, as seen on this chart, was chosen by Warner to illustrate her entry of Bayer in "The Sky Explored"

        TRADUCCION DE LA DEDICATORIA REAL, I EPISTOLAS PROEMIO DEL SEGUNDO TOMO DEL DERECHO, I GOVIERNO DE LAS INDIAS OCCIDENTALES

      [Madrid], 1639. Folio. Contemporary limp vellum. Rear pastedown torn, rear free endpaper lacking. Occasional contemporary marginal annotations and underlining in text. Bottom corner of leaf 49 torn (no loss). Internally fresh and crisp. A near fine copy. The rare epitome of the author's DISPUTATIONEUM DE INDIARUM JURE, extracted and translated from the two- volume work originally published in Madrid in 1629 and 1639. Solórzano Pereira was a renowned Spanish administrator and jurist who studied law at Salamanca and was a judge in the Audiencia of Lima from 1610 until 1626. He returned to Spain and became Prosecutor for the Council of the Indies, the administrative unit responsible for Spain's possessions in the New World. "A learned man, familiar with the Classics, as well as Roman, Canon, and Castillian Law, Solórzano compiled and studied all the royal decrees and laws pertaining to the New World. The DISPUTATIONEM, written in elegant Latin prose, is an extraordinary erudite legal history of the Indies, divided into five books. Book I, which serves as a general introduction to the rest, is a political and military history of the discovery, acquisition, and retention of the Indies. Books II and III deal with the political and legal status of the Indians, including a thorough study of the encomienda system. Book IV is dedicated to all church institutions in the New World. Book V analyzes the political organization of the Indies, from local governments to the Viceroyalty and the Supreme Council of the Indies" - Delgado Gomez. The TRADUCCION provides concise summaries of each chapter of each book in the original work. A near fine copy of the rare epitome of Solórzano's important study of Spanish law in the New World. EUROPEAN AMERICANA records only copies at Yale, Newberry, JCB (imperfect), and the Bibliothèque Nationale, compared to eleven copies for the 1629 and 1639 volumes of the DISPUTATIONEM.

Controverse politico-religieuse du jansénisme. Reçu docteur en Sorbonne en 1624, Bezian Arroy (c. 1590-1677) enseigna la philosophie au Collège de Navarre de Paris, puis chez les jésuites de Lyon. En 1634, il est nommé théologal de l'église de Lyon et publie Questions décidées sur la justice des armes des rois de France, sur les alliances avec les hérétiques ou infièles et sur la conduite de la conscience des gens de guerre pour justifier l'alliance du roi de France avec les Suédois et les princes protestants et la politique de Richelieu vis à vis des catholiques.

      Madrid, 1639. Half title. Folio. 19th-century period-style calf, spine gilt, leather label. Rubbed at extremities. Bookplate of John Carter Brown on front pastedown, with his ink stamp on half title. A few leaves trimmed closely, occasionally affecting running title. Some corners and edges reinforced. Page 251 torn and repaired, slightly affecting text. Light to moderate foxing and toning. Still, a good copy of a relatively scarce work. A collection of biographies of Spanish discoverers, conquistadors, and other figures involved in the early exploration and colonization of the New World, composed by a great grandson of Francisco Pizarro. Pizarro y Orellana, who held office in the Supreme Council of Castile, composed the work with the aim of simultaneously defending his ancestors, Francisco, Juan, and Gonzalo Pizarro, and laying claim to rights and grants due their descendants. "In order to hide this intention he cleverly included in his work biographies of other prominent discoverers such as Columbus (who by then was almost forgotten), Hernán Cortés, Alonso de Ojeda, and Diego García de Paredes. All the biographies are written in the same elevated tone of admiration, the narration being constantly enhanced with numerous erudite notes and comments in which the deeds of the subjects are favorably compared to those achieved by the great heroes of antiquity. In sharp contrast to the others, the biography of Diego de Almagro, the Pizarristas' great foe during the civil wars, is characterized by a poorly disguised tone of condemnation, his actions being shown as the tragic result of his personal shortcomings" - Delgado-Gomez. A fine mid-17th-century biographical compendium, providing extensive information about several key figures in the discovery and conquest of Spanish America.

        [Dastan-i Masi]. Historia Christi Persice conscripta, simulque multis modis contaminata.

      Leiden, Elsevier, 1639.. 4to. (24), 636, (8) pp. (With:) [Dastan-i San Bidru]. Historia S. Petri Persice conscripta [...], Latine reddita [...] a L. de Dieu. Ibid., 1639. (8), 144 pp. (And:) L. de Dieu. ['Ansarha-yi zaban-i Farsi]. Rudimenta linguae Persicae. Ibid., 1639. (8), 95, (1) pp. All titles printed in red and black. Contemp. brown full calf with gilt spine.. First edition of the first Persian grammar ever printed, with two Persian texts edited for the first time from manuscripts. "De Dieu's most striking performance [...] De Dieu is well aware that he is the first to publish a grammar of Persian. [...] In the preface De Dieu relates how he studied Persian with the help of the Constantinople Polyglot borrowed from Gomarus, and mentions Elichmann as the supplier of the manuscript with the 'Historia Christi', which was owned by Golius. The latter also supplied a ms. dictionary of Persian. In the annotations to the 'Historia S. Petri' the original ms. is described: it contained two more Persian texts, and was once bought by the Rotterdam physician Johannes Romanus at Agra in 1626. The volume then passed into the hands of Elichmann, who lent it to the editor. The two chapters from Genesis are taken from a complete translation in Arabic characters [by Rabbi Jacob Tawus] at Istanbul in 1546" (Smitskamp). These are lives of Christ and St Peter, originally written in Portuguese by the Jesuit priest Jerome Xavier (1549-1617) and then translated into Persian at the command of the Mughal emperor Akbar. It was at the Elseviers' request that De Dieu composed, as an addition, the elementary grammar. The grammars of Ignazio di Gesu (Rome 1661) and of Labrosse (Amsterdam 1684) were largely based on his work. Willems notes that Raimondi, as early as 1614, produced a grammar in Rome for the use of missionaries which remained virtually unknown in the west, but this existed only in manuscript (cf. Smitskamp). - Occasional slight brownstaining, but a good, tight copy from the library of the Swedish antiquarian bookdealer Björn Löwendahl (1941-2013). - Smitskamp, PO 310. Willems 490 & 477.
