        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'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.

        Portulaca Sativa [Purslane]; Satureia Domestica [Garden savory (summer savory)]; Thymbra legitima [Winter savory]

      Eichstatt 1640 - 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. Hand-coloured engraving. In excellent condition with the exception of some paper loss on the left margin and in the bottom left corner.

        The Historie of the Councel of Trent [History of the Council of Trent] In Eight Bookes. In Which (Besides the Ordinary Acts of the Councell) are declared many notable Occurences which happened in Christendom during the space of fourtie yeeres & more

      Richard Wittaker, printed by Robert Young and John Raworth, London 1640 - x; 882pp+table A-Z. woodcut engraving motifs. And Particularly the Practices of the Court of Rome, To hinder the Reformation of their Errours and to maintain their Greatness. Translated into English, the "Historie of the Councel of Trent" chronicles the great Council that formed the modern Catholic Church. The Council of Trent played an important part in determining the outcome of the Counter-Reformation. Called for by Pope Paul Ill, the Council was finally disbanded in 1563; although it had a life span of 18 years, it was only engaged in talks for four and a half years. The Pope did not attend the meetings of the Council and he took no formal part in it, however his legates had to ensure that the pope’s views would always be put forward in order that there was no danger of the Council being superior to the Pope.The Council was called to examine doctrine and reform. Charles V had wanted abuses looked at first in an attempt to please the Protestants and hopefully tempt them back to the church. Once they were back they could look at doctrine. Paul III did not want this as reforms could financially damage him and concessions could diminish his authority. The result was that two separate sections dealt with reform and doctrine simultaneously. The Council of Trent did mark a turning-point in the history of the Catholic Church as it gave Catholics a certainty about their own beliefs and practices that had been lacking and offered a firm base on which the spiritual life of the Catholic world could be reconstructed.

      per Francesco Suzzi Stampatore Camerale, FERRARA 1640 - Legatura settecentesca in piena pergamena rigida, al dorso tassello in pelle marrone con autore e titolo in oro; tagli rossi; al contropiatto anteriore due ex libris di cui uno del marchese Hieronymi de Summo Picenardi Marchionis Calvatoni. I volume: 4 carte non numerate per occhiello (che presenta un antico timbro circolare con all'interno monogramma), frontespizio e dedicatoria; 28 pagine numerate per Introduzione al Convito, 268 pagine numerate, di cui 254 dedicate all'opera e 14 alla Tavola delle cose più notabili . II volume: 2 carte non numerate per occhiello e frontespizio; 12 pagine numerate per dedicatoria, avviso al lettore e indice dei capitoli; 295 pagine numerate, di cui 272 per l'opera e 23 per la Tavola delle cose più notabili. In entrambi i volumi, testo inquadrato all'interno di dupilice filetto, capilettera abitati, finalini silografati. Ampia ed erudita monografia descrittiva delle attività conviviali degli antichi, con numerose citazioni di filosofi e scrittori sui convivii. Nell'introduzione l'autore recita: " Con lo scrivere de' Conviti, voglio inserire, quel rintracciare le molte, e varie costumanze degli antichi intorno ai loro Conviti". Opera rarissima a trovarsi completa delle due parti, rintracciato un unico esemplare presso la Biblioteca Marciana. Di particolare interesse gli aspetti enogastronomici descritti. Esemplare in ottime condizioni sia di legatura che all'interno, la seconda parte presenta alcune pagine con lievi uniformi arrossature, mentre la prima è freschissima.

        THEATRUM POLITICUM IN QUID AGENDUM SIT A PRINCIPE, ET QUID CAVENDUM ACCURATE PRESCRIBITUR PRINCIPIBUS, PRAELATIS. PRAENECESSARIUM.

      Florentiae 1640 - (600 ECONOMIA-RARO). (cm 22,3) Buona piena pergamena originale, tit. ms. al dorso, tracce di lacci, cc. 6 nn., pp 334, cc. 9 nn., molti fregi e capilettera ornati in xilografia. Edizione assolutamente rarissima e probabilmente originale che ebbe poi molte ristampe anche nel '700. Fu stampata senza dati tipografici per motivi politici. Nonostante approfondite ricerche non abbiamo trovato alcun riferimento bibliogr. in varie bibliografie specializzate. Manca anche alla Kress Library, a Sapori Antichi testi giuridici, al Cat. della Biblioteca Einaudi, al British M. XVII Cent. Italian ed a Bruni-Evans Italian in Cambridge. Lautore (1589-1659), e' originario di Pavia, per notizie vedi: Carnevale G. Notizie illustri tortonesi 1838 p. 317; Allacci L. Apes urbanae 1633 p. 26; Rosini C. Lyceum lateranense 1649, I p. 17. Qualche lievissima ombreggiatura ma esemplare molto bello e marginoso. Il Census nazionale OPAC SBN non registra alcun esemplare nelle biblioteche italiane.[f51] [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Proclamacion Catolica a la Magestad Piadosa de Felipe el Grande, Rey de las Españas y Emperador de las Indias, Nuestro Señor. Los Conselleres y Consejo de Ciento de la Ciudad de Barcelona

      Sin lugar de impresión ni impresor, pero: Barcelona, Año de 1640. 4to.; portada con el escudo de Cataluña, 266 pp., 2 hojas. Ejemplar con ligeras manchas de humedad antiguas en algunas páginas. Dos páginas sueltas. El conjunto en buen estado. Encuadernación de época en pergamino. Gaspar Sala i Berart, agustino nacido en Bujaraloz, en Aragón, publica anónimamente ésta «Proclamación Católica» que se convierte en la obra más representativa de la propaganda catalana del momento, en la que se critica la política del Conde Duque de Olivares, se manifiesta contrario a Felipe IV «de Castilla», favorable a la intervención francesa, y justifica la posición independentista del Principado. La Guerra de los Segadores en definitiva. Al año siguiente sería nombrado Cronista, y como «predicador real» intervino en las exequias de Pau Claris. Acabó su carrera con el Tratado de los Pirineos de 1659. Murió en Perpignan, Perpinyá, en 1670.

      None listed, London 1640 - 64 pp. 4to, 12 by 8 inches, 30 by 20 cm. Typos on title page include possibly "Johnson", although spelling was a more fluid matter in the 17th century, and the year of printing is given as 1440 instead of 1640. Pages have expected levels of age toning but generally clean otherwise. Leaf with pp 33/4 has tiny hole by the continuation word, "The" in lower right of 33, with trivial loss of part of the lettering of "the". Modern morocco and marbled endpapers bright and fresh.
