        Peribologia oder Bericht...von Vestungs gebewen. Vieler Orter vermehrett

      Finely engraved title, nine engraved divisional titles, & 410 engravings (numbered I-CCC & I-CX) of which many are double-page (plate CCC is a large folding plan of Strasbourg). 163, [8] pp. Thick folio, cont. blindstamped panelled pigskin over boards (a few plates with foxing around margins, two cropped by the binder's knife, the large plan with old repairs on verso & a few splits along folds), remains of green silk ties. Frankfurt am Main: [A. Humm], 1640. First edition, and a very appealing fresh copy in a contemporary blindstamped pigskin of this great work on architecture and fortification, illustrated with hundreds of finely engraved plates, here in deep rich impressions. This was a very influential work which Vauban studied carefully. Dilich (d. 1655), studied at Kassel and the universities of Wittenberg and Marburg. Following an extended sojourn in Holland, he became historian, geographer, and architect to Johann Georg I, Elector of Saxony. He was later appointed "oberlandbaumeister" with responsibility for all fortresses in Saxony. He oversaw the improvements of the fortresses surrounding Dresden. This was the classic work on fortifications in Germany of the period. "This treatise is distinguished by the ferocity of the illustrations which attempt to create an aesthetic of fear, elaborated in the external form of the fortification, especially the casemates, the gun embrasures of the parapet and the gates. [Dilich's] outlines for fortified city plans are somewhat influenced by Francesco de' Marchi's, but have even more extensive outworks; [he] clearly supported a fortification system based on the 'tenaille,' a predilection partially announced by his title (Peribologia = study of the circumference [of a sanctuary]). Nonetheless, many of his fortified city plans contain elaborate proposals for urban compositions of streets, squares and building lots."-Pollak, Military Architecture, Cartography, and the Representation of the Early Modern European City: A Checklist of Treatises on Fortification in the Newberry Library, 14. The illustrations are by Dilich's son, the Frankfurt engineer and architect Johann Wilhelm (1600-57), who also underwrote the publication. Fine copy. ❧ Berlin Kat. 3526. Cockle 832. .

Dopo essersi innamorato di Leucippe. i due giovani fanno naufragio e vengono catturati da dei briganti. Sfuggiti dai briganti e giunti ad Alessandria, Leucippe viene nuovamente rapita, dai pirati, e data per morta da Clitofonte. Col passare del tempo, il giovane sposa una vedova di Efeso di nome Melite, per scoprire in seguito che Leucippe aveva servito come schiava proprio da lei. Alla scoperta se ne aggiunge un'altra: il marito di Melite infatti non è morto, ma ritorna inaspettatamente a casa e, trovatovi Clitofonte come nuovo marito di sua moglie, lo imprigiona. Melite riesce a far fuggire Clitofonte, che però viene nuovamente arrestato. Nel frattempo Leucippe, si trova in realtà anch'essa ad Efeso e si rifugia nel tempio di Artemide, dove si svolge la conclusione del romanzo con la risoluzione dei conflitti: Leucippe dimostra la propria verginità e Melite la propria fedeltà al marito creduto morto, e i due giovani, finalmente riunitisi, possono sposarsi e tornare a Tiro. Esemplare in buone condizioni, salvo poche carte ossidate, completo delle due pagina di errata spesso mancanti. 0 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Datura Turcarum [Jimson weed or thorn apple]; Polium foliis & facie Lavendulæ [Germander]; Linaria purpureo violacea elatior [Purple linaria]

      Eichstatt, 1640. Hand-coloured engraving. In excellent condition with the exception of being trimmed within the platemark on the top margin. Basil Besler published "Hortus Eystettensis", the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613. He worked on the drawings for the 374 copper engravings over a period of sixteen years using the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and newly discovered plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler was, in modern terms, a botanist and horticulturalist, and he was familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of various plants. Besler had the good fortune to live at a time when exotic plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world. The garden that he organized and illustrated for his patron was both ornamental and experimental, and the large book he had engraved after his drawings was unique. The prints, made by a team of master engravers, are strong and exquisitely done.

        His Majesties Declaration, Concerning His Proceedings with His Subjects of Scotland, Since the Pacification in the Camp neere Berwick

      London: R. Young, and R. Badger, 1640. (ii); 63; (i)(blank) pages. Engraved portrait frontispiece. Light soiling and age discolouration, soft pencil annotations. Leather-backed boards. ESTC, 9260 & 22006. Thomas Wentworth after his recall by the King was defeated on the border by the Scots, this resulted in the signing of a temporary truce at Berwick. Charles needing new taxes to raise an efficient army ended his eleven years of tyranny by recalling parliament. Parliament refused to authorise any new taxes until the King agreed to abandon the hated "ship money". The King said he would only agree if Parliament would grant him enough money to re-open the war in Scotland, they refused which lead to the dismissal of this brief parliament. Wentworth then set out for the Scottish border again with a scratch army. The army mutinied and the Scots seized English land, eventually leading to the treaty of Ripon. 4to.. Book.

With 2 (identical) engraved title-pages and 497 engravings on 496 plates, including 52 double-page. Contemporary uniform brown calf, gold-tooled spines, gold-tooled board edges. Rebacked.

      BAL 2712; Fuhring, Ornament prints 1, 889-996 passim, etc.; cf. Berlin Kat. 314; Fowler 182. Magnificent collection of about 50 complete series of engravings of all kinds of ornaments and architectural details, mostly by Jean and Pierre Le Pautre. In the late seventeenth century, the enterprising Parisian print publisher Nicolas Langlois I (1640-1703) assembled numerous print series displaying designs for ornament, furniture, metalwork, interior decoration, architecture and gardens. He published them together under a general title, bound in one, two or more volumes with no table of contents and with a varying collection of print series from ca. 1655 to the time of publication. While several print publishers in Rome had issued collections of previously published and new print series already in the 16th-century, Langlois took the idea a step further by giving his collections a general title-page. In this respect his publication can be called the first French encyclopedia of ornament, decorative arts and architecture. With the 2 general title-page slightly browned and worn, and the last few leaves of volume 2 with minor water stains, but otherwise in very good condition, with only an occasional spot, small marginal tear or other minor blemish. Rebacked. An extensive collection of French architectural ornamentation by some of the greatest masters of the age of Louis XIV.

        The Case of Shipmony Briefly Discoursed, according to the Grounds of Law, Policie, and Conscience

      [London:] Printed [by E. Purslowe],, 1640. And most humbly presented to the Censure and Correction of the High Court of Parliament, Nov. 3. 1640. Small quarto (174 × 133 mm), pp. 49. Early 20th-century marbled boards, titled in gilt up spine, bookplate of Thomas Edward Watson, St Mary's Lodge, Newport. A very good copy. Listed in STC as the second printing ("policie" rather than "policy" in the title) of what "may be the first intellectually significant political pamphlet of the Long Parliament era. In this crisp and well printed quarto, Parker, a publicist and man of affairs, used issues raised during John Hampden's celebrated test case of 1637 to develop his own political views" (Michael Mendle, The English Experience: Its record in early printed books published in facsimile). From an important Sussex family, Parker (1604–1652) wrote anonymously, though he became well known under the moniker of the Observator in the pamphlet wars of the early and middle 1640s.

        Caryophyllus syluestris flore laciniato carneo; Caryophyllus sylvestris prolifero; Brunella coerulea magna flore

      Eichstatt 1640 - Hand-coloured engraving. Basil Besler published "Hortus Eystettensis", the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613. He worked on the drawings for the 374 copper engravings over a period of sixteen years using the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and newly discovered plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler was, in modern terms, a botanist and horticulturalist, and he was familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of various plants. Besler had the good fortune to live at a time when exotic plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world. The garden that he organized and illustrated for his patron was both ornamental and experimental, and the large book he had engraved after his drawings was unique. The prints, made by a team of master engravers, are strong and exquisitely done.

This is an oversized or heavy book that requires additional postage for international delivery outside of Canada and the US. <br><br> &#39;Matthew Paris (d. 1259?) is commonly regarded as England&#39;s greatest medieval historian. The &#39;Historia Anglorum&#39;, begun in 1250, is an abridgement, concentrating on English history, of the &#39;Chronica Majora&#39;, but it also includes some additional material for the period A.D. 1067-1253. Matthew Paris became a monk of St. Albans in 1217, and succeeded Roger Wendover as historiographer of that abbey in 1236. He drew his information from many documentary sources including papal bulls and royal letters and from conversations with eye-witnesses of the events narrated. (.) His style is graphic; his view is broad; and his opinions are expressed with fervour. He condems what he regarded as abuses of the court and church; he rebukes pope, king, nobles, and clergy, when he deems them worthy of blame. Matthew was a man of many interests and attainments&#39;.

In folio de [X]-554-[IV]-[555]-812-[XXXII]pp., reliure en plein veau brun de l'époque, dos remonté dans une basane plus claire que l'originale qui se retrouve également dans les angles supérieurs et dans la partie inférieure des marges, dos muet à 5 nerfs surlignés et soulignés de filets dorés, quelques petites craquelures sur les plats, pages de garde postérieures avec dans l'angle supérieur externe conservée une phrase manuscrite à l'encre noire: ''The gift of Mr. Derry Senr., june 24th 1813'', grande et belle gravure sur la page de titre, lettrines historiées, gravures en bandeau en haut des premières pages en début de volume, magnifiques et grands fers en culs-de-lampe en début de volume, de nombreuses notes dans les marges, bon et bel exemplaire.

Elle connut 9 éditions au XVIIème siècle. Lodge traduisit également Sénèque qui fut utilisé comme une référence jusqu'au XXème siècle. Il décéda en tentant de soigner des victimes de la peste.

        THE HOLY BIBLE: CONTAINING THE OLD TESTAMENT AND THE NEW. [bound with] THE WHOLE BOOK OF PSALMES

      London: by Robert Barker, 1640, 1639; by R. Bishop for the Company of Stationers, 1639. n. Hardcover. Bound in Memory of Beloved Joanna Strode, Somerset Mother of 16. 191 x 127 mm (7 1/2 x 5"). [944] pp.; 5 p.l., 95, [7] pp. SUPERB CONTEMPORARY DARK BROWN MOROCCO, ELABORATELY GILT, covers with intricate frame and central lozenge composed of many fleurons, volutes, and other small tools, silver cornerpieces and centerpiece engraved "Recor / dare / Matrem / Johanna Strode" ("To Remember Mother, Johanna Strode"), original silver clasps and catches, raised bands, spine densely gilt in compartments with fleurons radiating from concentric circles, marbled pastedowns (apparently lacking marbled free endpapers), all edges gilt. Ornate woodcut titles and headpieces for each testament, full-page royal coat of arms opposite dedication. For the Bible: STC 2342; Darlow & Moule 546. For Psalms: STC 2695. Slight rubbing to joints and extremities, occasional mild browning, isolated rust spots or small stains, other trivial imperfections, but AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE COPY, clean and fresh internally, and IN A SPARKLING BINDING. This is at once a remarkably handsome binding and a memento of a much-loved wife and mother, memorializing as it does Joanna (also Johanna or Joan) Barnard Strode of Barrington, Somerset, who died in 1649 at age 42. An heiress in her own right, she married William Strode, a wealthy clothier, in 1628, and bore him 16 children, nine of whom (six sons and three daughters) survived her. She was buried in an elaborate sepulcher which depicts her kneeling, surrounded by her living children and her armor-clad husband, whose arm is raised in a vain attempt to keep Death from striking her. The Latin epitaph describes her as "fruitful[!], faithful, loving, helpful, gentle, diligent, and meticulous" and praises her as a devoted daughter, a good wife, a kind mother, and a gracious and benevolent lady. Probably commissioned by the children for their grieving father (who never remarried), this may very well be the work of a London binder, given its quality. William Strode went on to serve in the Long Parliament, and took an active part in the English Civil War as a colonel in Cromwell&#39;s army. The extremely well-preserved state of the present volume indicates that it was treasured as a remembrance of a loved one rather than used for regular devotions. Apart from its substantial sentimental dimension, it is among the most beautiful antiquarian English bindings of its size that we have ever handled.
