CRUSO John DU PRAISSAC Sieur
1639. "C[RUSO], J[ohn]. The Art of Warre, or Militarie discourses Englished by I.C. Cambridge: Printed by Roger Daniel, Printer to that famous Universitie, 1639. 12mo, period-style full blind-paneled speckled calf gilt, raised bands. $4500.Extremely scarce first edition of Cruso's translation of du Praissac's long-esteemed military manual, copiously illustrated with wood-engravings, handsomely bound in period-style speckled calf.The Sieur du Praissac's Les Discours Militaires (Paris, 1614) "makes specific, detailed reference to the military campaigns of Maurits of Nassau, especially the sieges of the 1590s" (Richelieu's Army, 28). "His book was widely read, both in the original French and in Cruso's English version, and was a recognized authority" (American Military History 2:2 [1938], 110). Little is known about Cruso, except that "he wrote or translated six military books of real value, and his publications include no books but military" (ibid, 106). Cruso's translation of it, presented here, is addressed "To the Gentlemen of the Artillerie and Militarie companies in this kingdome, and particularly of that in Norwich," with the comment that "These are times of action, and require every true hearted subject to imploy his talent for his Majesties service and the public safety"—a decidedly royalist stance at a time of increasing Puritan strength and tension between Parliament and the King. Illustrated with numerous wood-engraved illustrations, maps and military plans (many full-page), depicting martial maneuvers, equipment, and fortificatons, as well as ornamental woodcut in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Plattes, Gabriel
London: J[ohn] L[egat] to be sold by George Hutton, 1639. Small quarto (5-1/8" x 7") in later polished blue morocco leather-backed boards; A4, a4, B-P4, Q2. [2, blank], 33, [1], 92, [1 errata], [1 blank] pages. Complete with the original first blank. Woodcut initials and head-pieces. An important early treatise on agriculture by one of the earliest advocates in England of an improved system of husbandry who devoted much time and money to practical experiments. Among his references are mention of the newly founded plantations in America and new agricultural machines. This copy has the cancel title page with "ver." in the Biblical quote and with the errata leaf. It is occasionally listed as a variant edition of his DISCOVERY OF SUBTERRANEALL TREASURE, but that is an error. Ferguson notes that this is a completely different work of "an original genius in husbandry who began his observations in the latter end of Queen Elizabeth's reign....As great a genius as this writer was, the public allowed him to drop down dead in London streets with hunger only; nor had he a shirt upon his back when he died." Quite scarce. STC 19998. Ferguson, II, 207-208 (not in Young Collection). Ferguson, Glasgow, II, 567. Wellcome I, 5100. Partington II, 103. Sotheran 907, 31. ESTC s114836. Neville II, 310.

Francesco Maria COSTANTINI
1639. COSTANTINI, Francesco Maria. - Nacque in Venarotta (Ascoli Piceno) il 19 febbr. 1639 da Giovan Domenico, patrizio di antica nobiltà marchigiana, e da Dea Massini, cugina del famoso giureconsulto ascolano Serafino Massini. Primogenito di dieci figli, ricevette in famiglia la sua prima educazione e frequentò poi le scuole secondarie nella vicina Ascoli. Nel 1658 fu ammesso al collegio Montalto di Bologna, ove compì brillantemente gli studi di diritto, manifestando subito la sua non comune perspicacia giuridica; nel 1661 si addottorò in utroque e ritornò ad Ascoli ove iniziò la pratica legale presso lo zio Francesco Costantini. Nel 1667 si trasferì a Roma ove si fece presto conoscere ed apprezzare per la qualità della sua oratoria forense, per la perizia nel diritto e per la limpida onestà professionale. Il C. infatti accoppiava alla profonda conoscenza delle dottrine legali un vivo senso della giustizia e una grande integrità d'animo, per cui spesso rifiutava di assumere la difesa di una causa che sentiva ingiusta; egli riteneva infatti che un avvocato non dovesse solo servire gli interessi del cliente ma soprattutto onorare la ragione e la giustizia; e sentenziò che se un avvocato intraprendeva una causa senza la convinzione di essere nella ragione e senza sufficienti probabilità di vederla riconosciuta, era tenuto poi, in caso di sentenza sfavorevole, alla restituzione delle spese e al pagamento dei danni (Vota decisiva, Bononiae 1759, IV, pp. 214 s.).A questo principio il C. orientò sempre la sua attività, per cui difese indistintamente ricchi e poveri, potenti ed um … [Click Below for Full Description]

MAGNANINI, OTTAVIO.
1639. Ferrara, Francesco Suzzi Stampator Camerale, 1639 (prima originale edizione). In 4to, occhietto, front., pp. (16), 301 + 1 di Errata Corrige + 20 (con la "Tavola delle cose principali") + 1, testatine, capolettera decorati o istoriati, finalini xilografati, testo in cornice postillato a margine, coeva legatura in piena perg. e con tit. ms. al dorso sostituita all'originale (frammenti della pergamena originale sono rimasti integrati al dorso), ripetuti errori nella numerazione delle pagine nella prima parte del testo dipendono da una errata impaginazione del testo (176 - 179; 180 - 177; 178 - 183; 184 - 181; 182 - 185) che c'è comunque tutto e risulta completo. L'Autore (Ferrara, verso il 1574) è stato uno scrittore italiano. La famiglia dei Magnanini, passò da Firenze a Fanano, poi visse a Ferrara, dove si estinse. Ottavio Magnanini si chiamò col nome accademico di Arsiccio Accademico Ricreduto. Le "Lezioni", divise in otto parti, come le altre opere, sono fittamente intessute di citazioni latine e volgari, fatto questo di cui discute il Magnaini nella prefatoria, richiamando non solo l'autorità di Aristotele e citando passi di Dante e Petrarca. Tra gli eruditi e gli studiosi, G. Fontanini ricorda come il Magnaini avesse giudicato la favola tassiana "vera idea delle favole boscherecce". Il Magnanini ebbe un ruolo di primo piano nella vita culturale e civile della sua città: dal 1607 fu segretario dell'Accademia degli Intrepidi con il nome di Arsiccio Ricreduto, con cui firmò buona parte delle opere a stampa, e fin dal principio partecipò alle adunanze tenendo delle le … [Click Below for Full Description]

SARDI PIETRO.
appresso i Giunti, 1639. Cm. 31, pp. (28) 220. Bel frontespizio interamente illustrato, marchio tipografico in fine e 45 figure incise entro e fuori testo (anche a piena e doppia pagina). Legatura strettamente coeva in piena pergamena floscia con titoli ms. al dorso e laccetti di chiusura (di cui due mutili). Minime tracce d'uso ed un piccolo alone al marginale bianco di poche carte, complessivamente genuino, marginoso ed in ottimo stato di conservazione. Esemplare, a nostro parere, desiderabile. Note ms. di possesso del famoso scrittore di storia portoghese Prospero Peragallo, che alla fine dell'800 era il possessore del volume. Celebre opera di architettura militare che viene spesso identificata come la seconda edizione dell'opera apparsa nel 1618 con il titolo: Corona Imperiale della Architettura militare. In effetti rispetto a quest'ultima sono tali le modifiche e le aggiunte che si deve dichiarare come una nuova opera. Opera celebrata ed elogiata da tutta la bibliografia in materia.

Du Loir, [Nicolas].
1639. 8vo. (16), 358, (24) pp. (including final errata leaf). Small woodcut vignette to title; woodcut intitials, head and tail pieces. Modern full calf, bound to style. First edition (variant title). - A series of ten letters written from 1639 to 1641 in which Du Loir gives his impressions of Constantinople and the Sultan's court, to which the author was privy as a member of the entourage of French ambassador Jean de La Haye. The originality of this correspondence lies also in the transliteration of several Qur'an verses (letter 5) and in providing the musical source of a Turkish song. The eighth letter includes the Ottoman text (and its French translation) of an account of the conquest of Baghdad, with a bilingual translation from Ottoman into French of the several titles of the Sultan and the other dignitaries of the court. - The author spent some eighteen months in the Levant: while he was in Turkey, Sultan Murad died and Du Loir was present at the coronation of Sultan Ibrahim. He returned to Venice in 1641 after passing through the Morea; the first and the last of the letters give some account of mainland Greece and the islands. "Cet ouvrage, écrit avec conscience, contient sur les moeurs orientales de l'époque des documents utiles pour l'histoire de la Turquie" (NBG XV, 138). - This is the rarer (and probably earlier) variant edition, mentioned in Blackmer, with a different subtitle (instead of "contenu ... sujets"). - Contemporary ownership ("G. Carius") to title; latterly in the collection of the American dietician and professor of medicine Edward E. Cornwall (b. 18 … [Click Below for Full Description]

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. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Amsterdam 1639-1649 378 x 498 mm. Carte figurant la Vénétie. Très rare édition au cartouche contenant la dédicace de Hondius à Gulielmus Boreelius, qui ne fut publiée qu'à trois reprises dans l'Atlas Novus, entre 1639 et 1649. Cette édition au verso blanc est d'autant plus rare car elle n'est pas signalée par Koeman (7100:1.3). Bel exemplaire aux contours aquarellés à l'époque. Très rare.

BOSSCHE, Guilelmus van den.
1639. In 4° (19,5x14,5), bella leg. non coeva (primi '900) in p.perg., doppi tasselli a due colori in pelle rossa e verde, con titoli, fregi e filettature iu oro, pp.(16)-422-(20 Index e addenda, con fregio tipografico al verso nell'ultima carta). Bel fregio tipografico al frontespizio Si segnalano i seguenti errori tipografici: le pp.39-40 non vennero mai stampate (ma c'è una perfetta concordanza tra la p.38 e 41), dopo la p. 32 seguono due pp. numerate 31 e 33, invece di 33 e 34, le pp.420-421 avrebbero dovuto essere 430-431, analogamente le pp. 420-422, avrebbero dovuto essere 432-434. 78 belle xilografie inquadrate in cornici rettangolari, eseguite da Christoph Jegher, illustrano in maggioranza mammiferi e uccelli, oltre che pesci, rettili, molluschi e artropodi; la parte centrale dell'opera (da p.225 a p.243) presenta una uniforme brunitura, per il resto trattasi di un ottimo e assai raro esemplare. BrM(NH), 206, Casey Wood, p. 250. Nissen ZBI, 481. Uno dei primi trattati interessato alle malattie degli animali e alla loro utilità o nocività per l'uomo. Le belle xilografie che adornano l'opera furono eseguite da un famoso artista tedesco: Christoph Jegher (nato tra il 1578 e il 1590 e morto tra il 1660 e il 1670), specializzato proprio nelle incisioni su legno e su metallo. Egli lavorò molto presso la bottega di Rubens, riproducendo in xilografia molte composizione del grande pittore fiammingo (maggiori notizie in Benezit, 7, p.511). L'opera in questione è particolarmente rara, sul mercato librario in questi ultimi trent'anni è comparsa solo tre volte. Non posseduto da … [Click Below for Full Description]

[] 1639 1Sans lieu, 1639. In-8 de (4)-468 pp., vélin souple, titre manuscrit au dos avec la mention "RARE", trace de mouillure marginale sur quelques feuillets (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale. 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 infidèles 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. Cet ouvrage entraîna une virulente riposte de Cornelius Jansenius (1585-1638) Mars Gallicus seu de justitia armorum et faederum regis Galliae (Le Mars français ou la guerre de France, 1637). Cette attaque contre la politique de Richelieu attira la fureur d'Arroy qui répliqua dans le Mercure espagnol. Palau y Dulcet, 165177 ; Bourgeois et André, IV, 2818.

Johannes JANSSONIUS (1588 - 1664)
1639. Una bellissima mappa che è una delle mappe più interessanti del sud - est americano. La mappa si basa sulla carta di Hondius Jodocus con qualche aggiornamento. Ciò dimostra l'influenza della mappa Hondius, e il suo modo mappa portato ad una larga diffusione sia le informazioni corrette e gli errori. La mappa di Hondius era una combinazione di informazioni provenienti da due mappe cinquecentesche, una delle Carolina, e una della Florida / Georgia. Questi sono stati combinati, e nel processo sono stati introdotti molti errori, non ultimo dei quali fu il raddrizzamento di fiume St. John, in modo che scorreva da un inesistente lago situato a nord - ovest della foce del fiume. A beautiful map that is one of the most interesting maps of the American southeast. The map is based upon the Jodocus Hondius' map of the same area - Jansson was Hondius' son - in - law - with some updating. This shows the influence of the Hondius map, and the way his map led to an extensive dissemination of both its correct information and its errors. Hondius's map was a combination of information from two sixteenth century maps, one of the Carolinas, and one of the northern Florida/Georgia region. These were combined, and in the process many errors were introduced, not the least of which was the straightening out of the St. John's River so that it flowed from an non - existent lake located to the northwest of the mouth of the river. This lake, which would become Lake Apalachy, appeared on this and other maps well into the eighteenth century. Jansson's map is updated from the Hondius version, includ … [Click Below for Full Description]

XIMENEZ PATON (Bartolomé).
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]

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]
