Johann Bayer (1572-1625), an Augsburg lawyer, was an amateur astronomer in the years just prior to the invention of the telescope.

Thomas Fuller (1608-1661) was a clergyman and a historian. The Holy War, his first historical work, is a history of the crusades. The Holy State, perhaps the most popular of all his writings, describes the holy state as existing in the family and in public life, gives rules of conduct, model "characters" for the various professions and holy and profane biographies (that is of moral and immoral persons). It is not a religious book. Among the biographies of the worthy are Sir Francis Drake, St. Augustine, Lord Burleigh, Queen Elizabeth, Lady Jane Grey, Paracelsus, Bishop Ridley, Cardinal Wolsey, the Black Prince and others, among the profane are Joan of Arc, the Witch of Endor, Joan of Naples, Ferdinand Alvarez de Toledo, Cesare Borgia and others. His rules of conduct encompass a wide variety of life's problems: Of Apparell, Of Building, Of Anger, Of Memory, Of Tombes, Of Marriage, Of Deformitie, Of Contentment, Of Fame, Of Books etc. Fuller was known to be a wit and his rules are full of pithy sayings: 'It is a vanity to persuade the world one hath much learning by getting a great library'; 'The Genius of the Author is commonly discovered in the Dedicatory Epistle'.

        Sainte Bible en Latin et en Francais

      392400_1639 class=milo align=center itemprop=name>Sainte Bible en Latin et en Francais, 1819. 392400_1639 class=milo align=center itemprop=name>Sainte Bible en Latin et en Francais, 1819 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce set of French and Latin translations of the Hebrew Bible. Complete with the five books of the Torah. As well as the Books of Truth, Wisdom Books, and Poetry Books. Unfortunately the eight books of Nevi'im, and the Historical Books are absent. Five volumes of the original ten covering Genesis, Exodus, and Book of Leviticus to volume one. Volume two containing Numbers, Deuteronomy, Jose, Judges and Ruth. Volume three containing the four Books of Kings. Volume four contains the Two Books of Parlipomenes, Esdras, Nehemias, Tobias, Judith, Esther, and Job. With lastly volume five containing the Psalms of David, the Proverbs of Solomon, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Songs. According to the Talmud, much of the contents of the Tanakh were compiled by the Men of the Great Assembly by 450BCE, and have since remained unchanged. Modern scholars believe that the process of canonisation of the Tanakh became finalised between 200BCE and 200CE. The Hebrew text was originally an abjad: consonants written with some applied vowel letters (matres lectionis). During the early Middle Ages scholars known as the Masoretes created a single formalised system of vocalisation. This was chiefly done by Aaron ben Moses ben Asher, in the Tiberias school, based on the oral tradition for reading the Tanakh, hence the name Tiberian vocalisation. It also included some of Ben Naftali and Babylonian innovations. Despite the comparatively late process of codification, some traditional sources and some Orthodox Jews believe the pronunciation and cantillation derive from the revelation at Sinai, since it is impossible to read the original text without pronunciations and cantillation pauses. The combination of a text ( miqra), pronunciation ( niqqud) and cantillation ( te`amim) enable the reader to understand both the simple meaning, as well as the nuances in sentence flow of the text. With advertisements between each book. Five volumes of the original ten. Condition: In original calf bindings with gilt designs to the spines. Externally, light rubbing to the boards and slight loss to the spine of volume four. One front joint is starting. All hinges are slightly strained. Internally, all are firmly bound and bright. Generally clean, with the odd spot. Private library bookplates to the front pastedown of each volume. Copperplate ink signature to the rear endpaper and rear pastedown to every volume. Some evidence of past worming to volume five, affecting pages 411 through to the rear pastedown. Overall: GOOD..

        'DU NOTAIRE'. Französische Handschrift in schwarzer Tinte auf Papier, unsigniert und undatiert (ca. 1760), einspaltig, zu 26 - 35 Zeilen, Schriftspiegel ca. 20 x 13 cm.

      . (478) S. (bis Seite 472 paginiert), (1) lose eingelegtes Korrekturblatt, dunkelbrauner Ganzleder-Band der Zeit auf fünf unechten Bünden (Gelenke mit kl. Einrissen, Ecken etwas berieben), 27 x 18,5 cm.. Der Text, in gut lesbarer Reinschrift, besteht aus etwa 200 Kapiteln mit Überschriften, die jeweils ca. 1 bis 4 Seiten umfassen. Die ersten Kapitel (S. 1 -23) befassen sich zunächst mit dem Notariat im Allgemeinen und dessen (historischer) Funktion ('Du Notaire', 'De la Creation des Notaires', 'Du Privilege des Notaires', etc.). Die folgenden (S. 23 - 104) behandeln die Praxis und die Rechtsformen von Verträgen und Transaktionen ('De l'origine des Contracts', 'De L'obligation', 'Formule d'une obligation', 'Des legalizations', 'De la transaction', 'De la restitution', 'Des choses qui peuvent etre vendues, ou achetees', etc.) und (S. 105 bis 230) den Kauf und Verkauf, die Überlassung, den Tausch und die Nutznießung, insbesondere von Immobilien, sowie spezielle Formen der Übertragung von Gütern und Rechten ('De la vente des fruits', 'De la vente des servitudes', 'De la rente', 'Du partage', 'De l'echange', 'Du titre clerical', 'Des resignations des benefices', 'Du contract d'entree en religion', 'De la Commande', 'Des fiefs', 'Des taillables', 'Des procures', 'Des Donnations', etc.). Auf Seite 230 bis 270 werden Heiratsverträge behandelt, daran anschließend (bis S. 297) u.a. Gesellschafts- und Vereinsrecht und Lehrverträge ('De la Societe', 'De l'apprentissage', 'Du Depot', 'De la quittance'), ab Seite 298 Testamente und Erbschaftsangelegenheiten ('De l'institution hereditaire', 'De la legitime', 'Des legats', 'Des usufruits', 'Des enfants naturels, batards, ... ', 'Des aliments', 'De l'inventaire legale', etc.). Ab Seite 395 wird schließlich das Schuldner-Gläubiger-Verhältnis, Zinsen und Sicherheiten dargestellt ('Des interets et usure', 'Des prescriptions', etc.); die letzten Kapitel befassen sich mit Sonderfragen, aber auch den Notariatstarifen; die Seiten 463 bis 471 enthalten das Inhaltsverzeichnis. - Seit dem Ende des 17. Jahrhunderts gab es in Frankreich ein Standardwerk zum Notariat, das Lehrbuch par excellence : Claude de Ferrieres (1639 - 1715) 'La Science parfaite des Notaires', erstmals 1682 in Paris erschienen. Auch für das vorliegende Manuskript war dieses, von Ferrieres Sohn Claude-Joseph (1680 - 1750) fortgeschriebene Standardwerk , wohl ein Vorbild. Auch Ferrieres Werk besteht aus etwas über 200 Kapiteln, von denen die meisten in der hier vorliegenden Handschrift ihre Entsprechung finden. Während Ferriere aber streng definitorisch Begriff für Begriff abhandelt, geht die Handschrift auch auf (wohl der eigenen Praxis entnommenes) Nebensächliches und Beispielhaftes ein : 'Des fruits qui tombent des arbres d'autrui sur le fond voisin' (Seite 444) etc. - Die ersten Seiten mit mittigem Braunfleck, sonst nur stellenweise leicht stockfleckig.

Upper corner of about 30 ff. with tiny worm hole restored, mainly marginal, possibly at time of binding; several inserted notes testifying it?s importance.First edition. One of the rarest Jesuit relations; it narrates the life, missionary work and martyrdom of Father Marcelo Mastrili (1603 - 1637) in Japan on Mount Unzen (outskirts of Nagasaki) under the Tokugawa Shogunate. Mastrili had sailed to Japan with aims of reconverting the "fallen priest" Christovao Ferreira who had renounced his faith. Ferreira (c. 1580 ? 1650) was a Portuguese Jesuit missionary, he worked in Japan from 1609 to 1633 and was the head of the Jesuit Order in that country during the religious purges against Christianity in 1633; after being tortured for hours, committed apostasy, subsequently changing his name to Sawano Chuan and registering at a Buddhist temple.Mastrili was arrested shortly after landing - the relation of his travesty towards Japan is also noted-; he was then submitted to torture and beheaded. Mysticism did not elude Mastrili, he reported to having visions of St. Francis Xavier who cured him twice. Furthermore, it contains accounts of missions to Goa, Mindanao and Japan. Subjects include "La celestial vocacion a la mission de la India", "La apostolica misiondel P. Marcelo en la jornada de Mindanao", "La entrada en el Japon... tormentos y muerte gloriosa". Engraved title with large coat of arms, signed with monogram "AF?" and engraved frontispiece showing the martyrdom of the Italian Jesuit Father Mastrili by the hands of the local authorities. Stafford (1599 - 1642) was an English Jesuit, historian and mathematician, he wrote an extensive treatise on calculating instruments and several manuscripts relating to science. The work?s rarity is considerable, with only two copies in public institutions in Spain (one defective) and no copies having appeared for auction in the last 30 years.Palau, 321913 ("Obra de estima en comercio").

        Andreae Argoli S. Marci Serenissimo annuente Senatu Equitis, medici, philosophiae in Patavino Lyceo Mathematicas Scientias prositentis De Diebus Criticis et de Aegrorum Decubitu Libri Duo.

      typis Pauli Frambotti, Patavii (Padua) 1639 - Hardcover. Octavo. (xxxii) + 93 (+ i) + (+ iv) + 148pp. Later parchment spine, over early hand-printed, patterned, paper-covered boards. Gilt title ("Argoli") and rules to spine. Fresh endpapers. Engraved title-page at front of book, letter-press title page following p. 93 (as always). Woodcut astrological diagrams. Latin text. Andrea Argoli (1570–1657), was born in the Abruzzo region of Italy, but gained renown as professor of mathematics at the University of Rome La Sapienza, and then at the University of Padua, specialising also in astronomy and astrology. His astrological pupils are said to have included Placido Titi, and Giambattista Zenno, astrologer to Wallenstein. This work apparently covers Argoli's broader interests, and includes a large number of woodcut astrological charts of various notables. The engraved and the letterpress titles are slightly different. The engraved title page reads: "Andreae Argoli D. Marci serenissimo annuente equitis . De diebus criticis et de aegrorum decubitu libri duo", while that of the letterpress title page is "Andreae Argoli D. Marci serenissimo annuente senatu equitis, medici, philosophi, ac in Patauino lyceo mathematicis scientias profitentis, De diebus criticis, et de aegrorum decubitu, liber secundus." Spine slightly darkened, boards a bit rubbed especially along the extremities where there is some chafing. The printing of the engraved title-page is quite indistinct - it may be faded or even have been washed - but given the beautiful condition of the paper and other pages it seems most likely that this is a printer's flaw: not enough ink on the plate or not firmly enough pressed down. There is also a contemporary previous owner's name in the top margin of the page, and a dozen or so words in Latin added in between the printed titles. Pages very lightly rippled, otherwise a remarkably clean, bright, VG + copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Common-Wealth of Utopia: Containing a Learned and Pleasant Discourse of the Best State of a Publike Weale, as It Is Found in the Government of the New Ile Called Utopia. Written By the Right Honourable, Sir Thomas Moore, Lord Chancellour of Engla

      Printed by B. Alsop & T. Fawcet, London 1639 - Scarce seventeenth-century edition in English of Sir Thomas More';s provocative treatise on the ideal state, originally written in Latin and first published by Erasmus in 1516. The fictional report of a communal system of government recently discovered on a New World island, Utopia contains elements of satire, in the spirit of Sebastian Brant';s Ship of Fools and Erasmus';s Praise of Folly. More';s critique of absolute rule, however, placed the work in a broader political and humanist tradition: "if any King were so smally regarded, & so lightly esteemed; yea, so be-hated of his Subjects that other ways hee could not keepe them in awe, but onely by open wrongs . . . surely, it were better for him to forsake his Kingdome then to hold it by that meanes, whereby though the name of King be kept, yet the Majesty is lost." More';s utopian proposals, including universal education, religious tolerance, and the abolition of private property, sparked debate across Europe. In 1535, More';s refusal to acknowledge Henry VIII';s supremacy over the pope led to his beheading, making him one of the most celebrated of England';s saints and martyrs. Utopia did not appear in English until Ralph Robinson';s 1551 translation, years after More';s execution. Robinson';s text, with its appealing "Tudor vigor" (Pforzheimer), appeared in several editions during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries: this is the fifth edition of Robinson';s translation, which would not be superseded until Gilbert Burnet';s version of 1684. Pforzheimer 741. ESTC 18098. PMM 47 (1516 first edition). A handsome copy of a humanist classic. Duodecimo, early blindstamped paneled calf rebacked, raised bands, spine lettered and ruled in gilt. Letterpress title page with woodcut border; publisher';s dedication to Cresacre Moore; woodcut initials, headpieces, and tailpieces in text; ruled borders. Without the additional engraved title page, originally printed for More';s Epigrammata the previous year, often missing. Light shelfwear to binding, lower corners repaired; early owner signature crossed out on title page; top edge cropped close; occasional tiny wormhole in text. Armorial bookplate to front pastedown.

        Woodcut portrait by Coriolano

      1639. Liceti, Fortunio (1577-1657). Woodcut portrait by Giovanni Battista Coriolano (1590-1649), signed in the block by the artist. N.p., 1639. 194 x 138 mm. (image measures 172 x 130 mm.). Matted. Tiny ownership stamp on the verso, one or two marginal finger-marks, but fine otherwise.Excellent impression with good margins of one of Coriolano's most famous woodcut portraits. The subject, Italian physician and scientist Fortunio Liceti, was the author of De monstrosorum causis, natura & differentiis libri duo (1616), one of the earliest classifications of deformities (see Garrison-Morton 534.53). He also published works on astronomy and spontaneous generation, and minerology. Coriolano, the son of Cristoforo Coriolano, is best known for his woodcuts, "which resemble in style those of F. Villamena" (Bryan, Biographical Dictionary of Painters and Engravers [1886]). The verso of the print is blank, indicating that it was issued separately and not as part of a book.

      London: Printed by B. Alsop & T. Fawcet, and are to be sold by Wil:Sheares ... 1639.. [6],288,279-305,[1]pp. 12mo. Elegantly bound in full olive green crushed levant, raised bands, elaborately gilt with triple vertical columns of leaves and flowers surrounded by a dense field of gilt small circles, with title, date and author in gilt, inset within blind and gilt borders on each board, and with each spine compartment similarly embellished with gilt small circles and blindstamped floral devices, a.e.g., by Riviere and Son. Engraved pictorial extra title. Modest soiling at lower fore-corners of engraved title and title, intermittent light tidemark to lower forequarters of some leaves in gatherings E through J,and toward end, half small finger- tip size smudge in lower margins of same leaves, but a very good copy in a handsome exhibition binding. The scarce fifth edition of Ralph Robinson's translation into English of More's masterwork. The engraved title was executed by William Marshall, and the errors in pagination vary between copies, and include misnumberings of several individual pages. Robinson's translation was first published in 1551, and although Gilbert Burnet's new translation (1684) is in many ways its superior, it has been frequently used as the English text even into the 20th century. Dibdin frowned on the careless production evidenced in this edition, but nonetheless utilized it for his own reprint. The binding is first quality, and a note on the front pastedown records: "This binding was designed by Thomas Chatto & executed by Messrs. Riviere," below which appears the engraved bookplate of Noel Barwell. ESTC locates 11 copies in North America. Thomas More's UTOPIA... marks the creation of a genre that was to have a far-reaching effect on the world of letters and of the imagination. The notion of an ideal society had been canvassed before, notably in Plato's REPUBLIC, but it was More who fully developed the concept of an imagined ideal world, and who also gave the familiar name to the concept, with his famous pun on "good place" (eutopos) and "nowhere" (outopos).
