        De Imitatione Christi. 1640]. De imitatione Christi libri IV.

      E Typographia regia, Parisiis 1640 - In-folio de (2)-550 p. 1 feuillet blanc, veau olive glacé, dos orné à 6 nerfs, triple filet doré sur les plats, dentelle intérieure, tranches dorées (relié vers 1800). Premier ouvrage sorti des presses de l'Imprimerie royale établie au Louvre en 1640. Titre-frontispice gravé par Claude Mellan, d'après Jacques Stella ; bandeaux, culs-de-lampes et lettres grises gravés par C. Mellan. Le frontispice représente un chrétien (Louis XIII) méprisant les attributs de la guerre, de la royauté et de la richesse qui sortent d'une corne d'abondance posée à terre. L'Imprimerie royale fut fondée en 1640 par le cardinal de Richelieu. Pour l'établir, il fallut sept ans et une dépense de 360.000 livres, somme énorme pour cette époque. Louis XIV développa l'institution qui eut pour premier asile les salles basses du Louvre. D'après P. E. Puyol, Descriptions bibliographiques. du livre De Imitatione Christi (1898), le texte, volontairement anonyme, reprend en la corrigeant, la version d'Heribert Rosweyde. Bel exemplaire. L'Art du livre à l'Imprimerie nationale, 99 ; Duprat, Catalogue chronologique des éditions de l'Imprimerie royale du Louvre, n°1. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Bierens de Haan 2609; Kunst op schrift 137. Second edition of a popular practical manual teaching the art of drawing by the famous Dutch painter Gerard de Lairesse (1640-1711). The book is divided into two parts, the first part teaching young children in 12 lessons the principles of drawing based on geometry, and in the second part a more advanced course is given in 10 so-called "propositions" for professional art students, including a detailed plan for the installation of an Art Academy. Gerard de Lairesse, sometimes called the Dutch Poussin, devoted himself to teaching after he became blind in 1690. Being a classicist, his theories were mainly based on Junius's De pictura Veterum, and on Charles Dufresnoy's De arte graphica, but the practical side of his teaching, based on his own lifelong experience, gives his text books their special interest and importance.The treatise by Segner teaches how to construct lamps which were economic and efficient and also spared the artist's eye-sight. The plates extensively show how to construct such lamps as well as their oil-reservoirs. Slightly browned, with some faint, marginal foxing on only a few pages. Binding slightly rubbed along the extremities with some restorations to the spine. A very good copy in attractive binding.

        Zeer aanmerkelijke reysen gedaan door Jan Erasmus Reining, meest in de West-Indien en ook in veel andere deelen des werelds. &c. Amsterdam, Jan ten Hoorn, 1691. 4to. With an engraved frontispiece signed by Caspar Luyken and 6 engraved plates (including 2 folding) one by Jan Luyken (unsigned). 18th-century marbled wrappers. In a modern black cloth clamshell box.

      Klaversma & Hannema 1381; Sabin 69119; STCN (5 copies); Tiele, Bibl. 1052. Rare first and only edition of the heroic exploits of the famous Dutch pirate, privateer and naval officer Jan Erasmus Reyning (1640-1697). His close friend, a Curaçao doctor, wrote down his stories and published them. Reyning's adventurous career began at age ten when he went to sea with his father, who was killed in battle when they served on a privateering ship a couple years later. Jan Erasmus was taken prisoner during the Second Anglo-Dutch War (1665-1667), and went into the service of a French plantation on the island of Hispaniola. Around 1667 he became a buccaneer in the jungles around Santo Domingo, and between 1669 and 1672 he appears to have fought as a privateer captain with French or English letters of marque. He and his partner Jelle Lecat worked with such notorious pirates as Roche Braziliano and Henry Morgan. In 1672, with the Netherlands at war with England and France, he left Spanish service to protect the Dutch colony of Curaçao, earning him a reputation as a sort of Robin Hood and the gratitude of the Dutch West India Company. After returning to the Netherlands he served as an officer in the Dutch marine, dying in a storm in the Bay of Biscay in 1697.An object apparently once placed between C1 and C2 left some rust-coloured stains in the text near the gutter margin and there are occasional marginal stains or chips, but the book is still in good condition and only slightly trimmed. A vivid picture of the pleasures and violence of life among pirates of the Caribbean: it would make a good movie.

        Commentarius in Enchiridion Epicteti, ex libris veteribus emendatus. Cum versione Hieronymi Wolfii, et Cl. Salmasii animadversionibus, et notis quibus Philosophia Stoica passim explicatur & illustratur.Leiden, Johannes Maire, 1640. 4 parts in 1 volume. 4to. With three title-pages. Set in roman, Greek and Arabic types. Contemporary French pointillé binding in the style of "Le Gascon", richly gold-tooled in concentric panels on both covers, and in the six compartments of the spine, the second with the title.

      - Breugelmans 1640:17; Smitskamp, Philologia orientalis 322 (part 3); Nave, Philologia Arabica 97 (part 3). A parallel Greek and Latin edition, edited by Daniel Heinsius, of Simplicius's commentaries on Epictetus's Enchiridion. The commentaries are especially valuable for the light they shed on earlier philosophers, some of whose writings have not survived. The second part provides extensive additional notes on Epictetus and Simplicius by Claudius Salamasius (1588-1653). The third and fourth part provide the parallel Greek, Latin and Arabic Tabula Cebetis and Aurea Carmina Pythagoræ by Johan Elichman (c. 1600-1639), with a preface by Salmasius. Maire's presswork and typography is excellent. With an 18th-century letterpress bookplate of "Robert" and a late 19th-century engraved bookplate of Harold George Messel. In very good condition, with only minor browning and water stains, and a couple of spots in the text. The spine with a smal restoration. A very good copy of Heinsius's Simplicius, in a sumptuous binding.

        Zeer aanmerkelijke reysen gedaan door Jan Erasmus Reining, meest in de West-Indien en ook in veel andere deelen des werelds. &c. Amsterdam, Jan ten Hoorn, 1691. 4to. With an engraved frontispiece signed by Caspar Luyken and 6 engraved plates (including 2 folding) one by Jan Luyken (unsigned). 18th-century marbled wrappers. In a modern black cloth clamshell box.

      - Klaversma & Hannema 1381; Sabin 69119; STCN (5 copies); Tiele, Bibl. 1052. Rare first and only edition of the heroic exploits of the famous Dutch pirate, privateer and naval officer Jan Erasmus Reyning (1640-1697). His close friend, a Curaçao doctor, wrote down his stories and published them. Reyning's adventurous career began at age ten when he went to sea with his father, who was killed in battle when they served on a privateering ship a couple years later. Jan Erasmus was taken prisoner during the Second Anglo-Dutch War (1665-1667), and went into the service of a French plantation on the island of Hispaniola. Around 1667 he became a buccaneer in the jungles around Santo Domingo, and between 1669 and 1672 he appears to have fought as a privateer captain with French or English letters of marque. He and his partner Jelle Lecat worked with such notorious pirates as Roche Braziliano and Henry Morgan. In 1672, with the Netherlands at war with England and France, he left Spanish service to protect the Dutch colony of Curaçao, earning him a reputation as a sort of Robin Hood and the gratitude of the Dutch West India Company. After returning to the Netherlands he served as an officer in the Dutch marine, dying in a storm in the Bay of Biscay in 1697.An object apparently once placed between C1 and C2 left some rust-coloured stains in the text near the gutter margin and there are occasional marginal stains or chips, but the book is still in good condition and only slightly trimmed. A vivid picture of the pleasures and violence of life among pirates of the Caribbean: it would make a good movie.

        Libro de la destreza berdadera de las armas ." Manuscript on paper, in Spanish.

      , , 1640. - 4° (25.4 x 18.5 cm.), contemporary limp vellum, worn. Written in ink, in a seventeenth-century hand, large and fairly legible, with copious corrections and annotations. Engravings on 3 leaves: title, author and date within a cartouche on one of opening leaves; portrait of author with his arms, motto, and an inscription; engraved arms (of dedicatee?). Occasional light dampstaining and soiling. Overall very good condition. (5 ll.), 68 ll. [skips 44, text appears complete], 23 ll., (5 ll.), 71 ll. [skips 48, text lacking], (3 ll.), 22 ll. [skips 8, text appears complete], 31 ll. [skips 1-4, 6-7, 17-29 with text lacking, also undetermined amount at end], (6 ll.), 30-44 ll., 24-32 ll., 27-34 ll., (1 l.) [=245 ll.]. *** A very substantial and important unpublished manuscript covering the principles and fundamentals of fencing and tactics to use in specific situations. The manuscript consists of two books: a lengthy "Adbirtencias praticas y primeros principios para el conosimiento de lo que se ubiere de dezir o enseñar en este Libro" in 178 numbered sections; and a shorter "Primeros principios y fundamentos para comensar [?] por nuestros tres caminos." Following this section are two apparently earlier working drafts (and a fragment of a third) of the first book, plus several incomplete drafts of the second book. The sequence of composition is unclear, for each draft includes substantial alterations and additions not present in the others.The substantial corrections and annotations suggest that it is in the hand of the author, and was perhaps being prepared for publication: the opening leaves include a dedication to the Conde de Peñaflor and sonnets addressed to the author (among them several by other fencing masters and another by a physician). The pagination is erratic, and some leaves of the preliminary drafts appear to have been lost (as noted above) or perhaps even discarded intentionally after revision, but the total of 245 leaves approximately corresponds to that given by Palau and Leguina.The title, author, and date of the work are engraved (on ruled lines) within a cartouche on one of the opening leaves. On the following leaf is a naively engraved portrait of the author, with his coat of arms above, the words "Ludovicus Mendes de Carmona nobilissimae totius civitatis Escegae natus etatis sue 66 annorum" around the oval frame, and at the top of the engraving the motto, "Por las armas y las letras se goviernan el mundo." On the next leaf, the dedication, an engraved coat of arms-presumably those of the dedicatee-has been tipped.Little is known of Mendes de Carmona other than that he was born no later than 1574 and was a native of Écija (between Córdoba and Seville). The dedication to the manuscript implies that he was a fencing master in Seville.Provenance: The manuscript described by Palau is noted as having appeared in the Edouard de Beaumont sale (Paris, 6 June 1888), "en aquel Catálogo fué descrito por primera vez." It later sold for 3500 frs. in Paris in 1936. Our manuscript evidently passed through the French book trade: several pencilled notes in French appear on the recto of the front flyleaf, and the words "Vente de Beaumont 1888" are pencilled on the front pastedown.*** Palau 163091n: apparently describing this manuscript ("autógrafo del autor"), with 240 ll. and an engraved title-page, portrait, and coat of arms; he cites the author's name as Luis Méndez de Carmona Tamariz. Leguina 117: apparently describing the same manuscript, with 240 ll. Thimm p. 46: citing the author as Tamaris Méndes de Carmona, and calling for 240 ll. plus a plate with a coat of arms.

        EROTOMANIA, OR A TREATISE DISCOURSING OF THE ESSENCE, CAUSES, SYMPTOMES, PROGNOSTICKS, AND CURE OF LOVE, OR EROTIQUE MELANCHOLY

      Oxford: Printed by L. Lichfield, 1640. First Edition in English. First published in Toulouse in 1610, then revised and reissued in Paris in 1623, this discussion of erotic melancholy enraged the Inquisition and inspired Robert Burton. Toulouse-trained physician Jacques Ferrand (b. ca. 1575) defines the symptoms, especially the mood swings from jocumdity to deep melancholy, that accompanied unreasonable passions, and recommends treatments to control them, from diet and rigorous exercise to bloodletting. The Inquisition took issue with Ferrand even discussing astrology, chiromancy, and magic--even though he disparaged their claims--and with his frank discussion of sexual health. Perhaps his biggest offense, in their eyes, was treating erotomania as a physical disorder to be treated by medical means when the Church considered it a sickness of the soul curable only by God and his ministers. Madan notes that "If Robert Burton was acquainted with the first edition of this book, as he may well have been, there can be little doubt that he has taken or imitated the general method and treatment of the subject, in his Anatomy of Melancholy". Burton certainly owned a copy of the Paris 1623 edition (N.K. Kiessling, The Library of Robert Burton, Oxford, 1988, no. 566). The translation here is by Edmund Chilmead (1610-54), a serious scholar of music and a cleric at Christ Church, Oxford, who supplemented his meager income by transcribing music, translating books, and cataloguing the collection of Greek manuscripts at the Bodleian Library.. 145 x 95 mm. (5 3/4 x 3 5/8"). 20 p.l., 363 pp. Translated from the French by Edmund Chilmead. First Edition in English. Contemporary sprinkled sheep, flat spine divided into panels by double blind rules. Front free endpaper with neat early ink inscription in Latin. STC 10829; Madan I, 219. Front joint with one-inch crack at head, leather loose at head of spine, joints a little worn, tail edge of upper cover with thin half-inch hole from worming, extremities rubbed, but the binding still sound. Endpapers with offsetting from turn-ins, front pastedown with repaired three-inch tear, a5 with one-inch smudge affecting the final word on the last three lines of text, light dampstain to head margin throughout, other trivial imperfections, but still a very good copy, generally clean and fresh with no major defects.

        Il Sacrificio di Isacco

      1640 - Acquaforte, 1640-50, privo di data e firma. Stato unico. Il tema del sacrificio di Isacco è raccontata nella Genesi (22: 1-19): Dio comandò ad Abramo di sacrificare il suo unico figlio, Isacco, come prova della sua obbedienza. La storia è stata interpretata come una prefigurazione della crocifissione di Cristo, che il Padre ha mandato per essere sacrificato. Testa raffigura il momento in cui appare un angelo e arresta il braccio di Abramo che sta per colpire suo figlio; Nel frattempo, un altro angelo porta un agnello sacrificale da sostituire a Isacco. Presso il Museo Teylers, ad Haarlem, è conservato un disegno, a penna e inchiostro, solo leggermente più grande e corrispondente a questa incisione nella maggior parte dei dettagli. Harris e Brigstocke riferiscono la realizzazione di questa incisione alla fine del decennio 1630, mentre Bellini ritiene appartenga agli ultimi anni di Testa, o al periodo compreso tra il 1645 e il 1650, in relazione con la serie del figliol prodigo. Cropper suggerisce il biennio 1640-1642, più vicino a L'Adorazione dei Magi e al dipinto della Presentazione della Vergine al Tempio. Tuyll ha osservato che l'invenzione di Testa può essere collegato al rilievo in terracotta dello stesso soggetto di Alessandro Algardi, probabilmente della fine degli anni 1630, ora al Seattle Art Museum. Ci sono molte differenze tra i due, ma le proporzioni e la figura di Abramo potrebbero indicare che la sua conoscenza del rilievo. Testa può anche aver visto l’omonimo dipinto del Domenichino, ora al Prado, nel quale l'angelo toglie il pugnale dalla mano di Abramo e il paesaggio ha molte corrispondenze con quello interpretato da Testa. Come spesso accade per le sue stampe di questo periodo, che si occupano di temi austeri o tragici, l'incisione del sacrificio di Isacco illustra uno dei di brani biblici più drammatici. La propensione di Testa per tali soggetti potrebbe essere condizionata dalla sua complessa personalità, e alla sua depressione. Com’è noto, si suicidò annegando nel Tevere, all'età di 38 anni. Etching, 1640 – 1650, without date and signature. Only state. The subject of Isaac’s sacrifice is told in Genesis (22: 1–19): God commanded Abraham to sacrifice his only son, Isaac, as proof of his obedience. The story was interpreted as a prefiguration of the crucifixion of Christ, whom the Father sent to be sacrificed. Testa depicts the moment when an angel appears and stays Abraham’s arm as he is about to strike his son; meanwhile, another angel brings a sacrificial lamb to be substituted for Isaac. There is a fully resolved compositional drawing for this etching, in pen and ink, only slightly larger and corresponding to it in most details, preserved in the Teylers Museum, Haarlem. Harris and Brigstocke place this etching in the 1630s, whereas Bellini considers it to belong to Testa’s last years, or between 1645 and 1650, relating it to the series of the story of the Prodigal Son. Cropper suggest 1640-42, closer to The Adoration of the Magi and to the painting of The Presentation of the Virgin in the Temple. Tuyll have observed that Testa’s invention may be connected to the terra-cotta relief of the same subject by Alessandro Algardi, probably from the late 1630s, now in the Seattle Art Museum. There are many differences between the two, but the proportions and appearance of Testa’s figure of Abraham may well indicate his knowledge of the relief. Testa may also have known Domenichino’s painting, now in Museo del Prado, in which the angel also removes the dagger from Abraham’s hand and a brilliant landscape is similarly juxtaposed to the shady trees behind Abraham, whose features likewise resemble those portrayed by Testa. As is often the case with Testa’s mature prints, which deal with austere or tragic themes, the etching of The sacrifice of Isaac illustrates one of the most dramatic of biblical passages, touching on heroic suffering and the psychological conflict of the father figure, Abraham.

      - Hunt 378; Nissen, ZBI, 859; South African bibl., p. 345; Stafleu & Cowan 2684. First edition of a botanical catalogue of about 3300 plants in the botanical garden of Leiden University (106 illustrated), compiled and apparently drawn by Paul Hermann (1640-1695). Hermann had only recently introduced many to Europe from the East Indies, Ceylon, the Cape and America. Most entries give the Latin name of the plant with references to the literature; some give more detailed descriptions. Hermann, born in Halle an der Saale, sailed with the VOC (Dutch East India Company) to Ceylon in 1672 and collected many plants there. As a professor of botany and medicine at Leiden University, he directed the University botanical garden from 1679 to his death in 1695. He made it the richest garden in Europe during the Dutch golden age, always looking over his shoulder at his leading competitor, Jan Commelin at the Amsterdam botanical garden. "He did excellent, vigorous work in depicting his plants" (Hunt). His premature death prevented publication of a planned second part. With bookplate and initial stamp.

        Frate con un libro seduto su una roccia in un paesaggio

      1640 - Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame o con sottilissimo margine, minime ossidazioni, per il resto in perfetto stato di conservazione. Opera giovanile di Salvator Rosa, sconosciuta ai repertori, e sinora conosciuta nell’unico esemplare della Collezione Ferdinando Salamon, pubblicato nel catalogo monografico dell’Arte Antica di Torino. L’opera viene descritta:"E’ questa una stampa inedita rinvenuta nella stessa collezione seicentesca che conteneva il rarissimo - Uomo seduto su una roccia - e l’unico altro esemplare conosciuto del - Paesaggio lacustre -. Inoltre, nella stessa collezione, vi era anche il - Paesaggio con due figure -. Si tratta con certezza di un’opera giovanile di Rosa, da lui evidentemente abbandonata come le altre di quel periodo, forse un progettato san Gerolamo nel deserto. Le affinità stilistiche lo situano temporalmente ai primi anni del 1640, quando Rosa era parzialmente influenzato dalle incisioni di Claude Lorraine". Magnifico esemplare, di questa rarissima opera del Rosa. Al verso i timbri di collezione di J.E. WETTERAUER (Lugt 3869) R. ALIANELLO (Lugt 5K) Etching, about 1640-45, with no data publishing. A very fine proof, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to copperplate or with thin margins, two small spots, otherwise in perfect condition. Early work by Salvator Rosa, unknown to the repertoires, and so far in the only known copy of the Collection Ferdinand Salamon, published in the monographic catalog of Silverio Salamon. The work is described: "This work was found in the same collection seventeenth century which contained the rare - Man sitting on a rock - and the only other known example of the - Lake landscape -. Also in the same collection, there was also - Landscape with Two Figures -. It is sure of an early work of Rosa, he evidently abandoned like others of the period, perhaps a designed St. Jerome in the desert. The stylistic affinities temporally situate him in the early years of 1640, when Rosa was partially influenced by the engravings of Claude Lorraine. " Ex collection: J.E. WETTERAUER (Lugt 3869) R. ALIANELLO (Lugt 5K) Magnificent example of this very rare work of Rosa, the second known copy. Salamon, Salvator Rosa (Aranella 1615- Roma 1673) L'opera grafica, n. 5. Dimensioni 77x112. Dimensioni 77 112mm [Attributes: Soft Cover]
