Francis Bacon
London: William Lee, 1639. Fifth edition with alphabetical table of the principle things contained within the work, featuring decorative head and tail pieces, and illuminated capitals. To which is added Bacon's "A New Atlantis a Worke Unfinished". A utopian work originally released in 1627, depicting Bacon's ideas of an ideal land where "generosity and enlightenment, dignity and splendor, piety and public spirit" were the commonly held qualities of the inhabitants of Bensalem. The name "Bensalem" means "Son of Peace", having obvious resemblance with "Bethlehem" and is referred to as "God's bosom, a land unknown", in the last page of the work. There has been much speculation as to whether a real island society inspired Bacon's utopia. Scholars have suggested numerous countries, from Iceland to Japan, a city named "Bensalem" was actually founded in Pennsylvania, USA, in 1682. Bacon has been called the creator of empiricism. His works established and popularised inductive methodologies for scientific enquiry, often called the Baconian method, or simply the scientific method. His demand for a planned procedure of investigating all things natural marked a new turn in the rhetorical and theoretical framework for science, much of which still surrounds conceptions of proper methodology today. The Sylva Sylvarum is particularly fascinating as it contains numerous passages dealing with medical treatments for the prolongation of life and the preservation of flesh. Sylva Sylvarum lacks the frontispiece and engraved title page. New Atlantis lacks last leaf. CONDITION In a half vellum bi … [Click Below for Full Description]

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, including coats-of- … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kenelm Digby
1639. Please see item description for condition. Further images available on request. Letter written on one side by Digby in black pen. Dated top and bottom 'June 21 1637' and '21 June 1637', the latter giving London as the place. Addressed to 'My good lorde'. Signed at foot 'Kenelme Digby'. Large folded folio sheet of laid and watermarked writing paper. Address panel on rear also in Digby's hand 'A monseigneur de Conte de Lester A Paris', which he has signed and dated again alongside. The inside two pages left blank. Folio (page size: 26.2cm x 18cm). Very Good condition. Letter tipped on to thin paper mount down left side. Two old circular repairs to rear blank leaf (presumably where seal was opened), and thin marginal repair down top half of gutter between leaves. Light folding / creasing. A few old and small scattered marks to surface of written page. On the whole, nicely preserved and conserved. See gallery images. A rare and wholly original manuscript letter from English polymath Kenelm Digby in London to Robert Sidney, the second Earl of Leicester, in Paris, regarding treaty negotiations with the French instigated by Charles I. Digby appears to have been misinformed about the treaty's progress, as in the letter he congratulates Sidney on its "happy conclusion". However, the treaty had not been signed at all, and the initiative ended when both sides became distracted; France with its declaration of war with Spain, and the English with the onset of the civil war. Digby is perhaps best known today for his cookery recipes which were published in 1669 under the title 'The … [Click Below for Full Description]

Coke, Edward.
The Fourth Edition, corrected. London, Printed by M.F.I.H. and R.T. Assignes of I. More Esquire, 1639. 20 cm x 28.7 cm. Woodcut - Titlepage, [4], Portrait of Edward Coke by John Payne, 395, [30] pages (collation complete). Hardcover / Contemporary full leather on five raised bands. Original endpapers with ink annotations and name of preowner „John Daynes". Several annotations throughout the book. Bookblock overall very good (see images). Some faded dampstains to the portrait and the outer margins of some of the pages. Binding in poor condition but repairable. Titlepage good but with a minor crease. Front board cleanly detached. Rare, overall good condition of this rare version of Coke's masterpiece on English Law ! The Institutes of the Lawes of England are a series of legal treatises written by Sir Edward Coke. They were first published, in stages, between 1628 and 1644. Widely recognized as a foundational document of the common law, they have been cited in over 70 cases decided by the Supreme Court of the United States, including several landmark cases. For example, in Roe v. Wade (1973), Coke's Institutes are cited as evidence that under old English common law, an abortion performed before quickening was not an indictable offence. In the much earlier case of United States v. E. C. Knight Co. (1895), Coke's Institutes are quoted at some length for their definition of monopolies. The Institutes's various reprinted editions well into the 19th century is a clear indication of the long lasting value placed on this work throughout especially the 18th century in Britain and Eur … [Click Below for Full Description]

RUSCELLI, Girolamo (pseud. Alessio Piemontese)
1639 De Secreti Piemontese Alchemy SECRETS Medicine Recipes Dyes Chemicals Girolamo Ruscelli was a 16th-century Italian writer who published numerous works and a variety of topics including translations of well-known works such as the Decameron and Furious Orlando. However, his most famous, or infamous, work was his book of secrets. This book, ‘De Secreti’ was a book of alchemical recipes that was a wild success; however, because of the nature of the work, Ruscelli did not put his own name on the work, rather he used a pseudonym of Alessio Piemontese to distance himself from the controversial contents. According to Stijnman, “Secreti is one of the earliest printed publications containing art technological recipes. [It] contains medical and cosmetic prescriptions, and recipes for preserving fruits, how to prepare pigments, dyestuffs and printing inks, black colored and metallic writing inks, and explains the coloring of bone, leather and wood. Its recipe for ‘intaglio’ printing ink is in fact the first ever published. [It] contains chemical information on the preparation of mercury sublimate and nitric acid, the cleaning of borax, casting and hardening metals, and imitating semi-precious stones.” Item number: #3851 Price: $950 RUSCELLI, Girolamo (pseud.

The tenth considers the subjection of the external and internal parts of the body to the planets and signs of the zodiac, and the diseases which are attributed to particular signs and planets.

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.

Four historical 17th century manuscripts on paper dated between 1639 to 1640 related with Scotland, England and the Bishop's War. The manuscripts probably belonged to a statesman involved in the negotiations between England and Scotland during the Bishop's War.

Seneca
Seneca. L. Annaei Senecae Philosophi Opera Omnia Exuit I Lipsii emendation et M. Annaei Senecae rhetoric quae extant, ex And. Schotti recens. Ludg. Batav. Apud Elzeverios 1639-40 Three volumes 12mo. Engraved title in volume I (verso of leaf 2 with leaf 1 blank) portrait engravings on versos of leaves 5 and 12 of unpaginated first quire. The Dedicatory epistle from Bonaventure and Abraham Elzevir in volume I is dated 1639. Volumes II and III are also dated 1639.and have regular Elzevir title-pages with the Elzevir tree device. I conjecture that the engraved title was added to Volume I and that the three volumes were issued together. Volumes I and II are Seneca the Younger, Volume III is the rhetorician Seneca the Elder. Lipsius had been interested in reviving Stoicism and his editions of Seneca are famous. Andre Schott’s first recension of Seneca the Elder was in 1607. Pagination: Vol I: [12] +552 pages; Vol II 718 pages; Volume III 442 pages+60 leaf index with 4 blanks at the end. Contemporary vellum yapp edges, dyed top edges, gilt-lettered spine-labels, scattered foxing and browning. Title pages of volumes II and III have traces of ink removal. All three volumes have intact and functional original brass clasps. The clasps have done their job over the centuries and aall three volumes have rectangular profiles from spine to fore-edge rather than trapezoidal. “This is the best duodecimo Elzevir edition.” - Dibdin II, page 397; Willems 508; Berghman 2134. A very attractive set. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Woodcut - Titlepage, [4], Portrait of Edward Coke by John Payne, 395, [30] pages (collation complete). Hardcover / Contemporary full leather on five raised bands. Original endpapers with ink annotations and name of preowner „John Daynes". Several annotations throughout the book. Bookblock overall very good (see images). Some faded dampstains to the portrait and the outer margins of some of the pages. Binding in poor condition but repairable. Titlepage good but with a minor crease. Front board cleanly detached. Rare, overall good condition of this rare version of Coke's masterpiece on English Law ! The Institutes of the Lawes of England are a series of legal treatises written by Sir Edward Coke. They were first published, in stages, between 1628 and 1644. Widely recognized as a foundational document of the common law, they have been cited in over 70 cases decided by the Supreme Court of the United States, including several landmark cases. For example, in Roe v. Wade (1973), Coke's Institutes are cited as evidence that under old English common law, an abortion performed before quickening was not an indictable offence. In the much earlier case of United States v. E. C. Knight Co. (1895), Coke's Institutes are quoted at some length for their definition of monopolies. The Institutes's various reprinted editions well into the 19th century is a clear indication of the long lasting value placed on this work throughout especially the 18th century in Britain and E … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Stafford, Ignacio
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.
