James Shirley
James Shirley The Coronation. A Comedy. Written by John Fletcher, Gent. London: Printed by Tho[mas] Cotes, for Andrew Crooke, and William Cooke. and are to be sold at the signe of the Greene Dragon, in Pauls Church-yard, 1640. Woodcut vignette on title-page, woodcut initial and headpieces, some headpieces composed of printer's ornaments; inkstains on margin of title-page and one hole costing several letters on the verso, pages somewhat browned. First edition. Sm. 4to. Pencil marking on verso. Gift inscription in pen on ffep. Interior quite clean considering the book's age. In remarkably good condition. The Coronation is a Caroline era stage play, a tragicomedy written by James Shirley, and notable for the tug-of-war of authorship claims in which it was involved in the middle seventeenth century. The first edition of The Coronation was issued in 1640 in a quarto printed by Thomas Cotes for the booksellers Andrew Crooke and William Cooke. And the authorship of the play was assigned to John Fletcher. Fletcher succeeded Shakespeare as the house playwright for the King's men, and was regarded as Shakespeare's equal in his day. His works produced with fellow playwright Francis Beaumont were considered by Rosenbach to be "almost equal in importance in English literature to the First Folio of Shakespeare" (Rosenbach 25:7).

Parkinson, John
Printed by Tho. Cotes, London, 1640-01-01. Hardcover. Acceptable. First edition. Folio, 34.5 x 24 cm. [20] 1755 pp. Lacking engraved title, final 3 pages of errata. Rebound in modern leather. Fine binding. 5 raised bands. Gilt flourish and title to spine. Restoration to title page. Some toning, spotting and marginal soiling/staining. Offsetting to woodcuts. Dampstaining, corrosion to first leaves with loss to text. Occasional old ink corrections and marginalia. Final leaf remounted. <br><br> Parkinson held the position of Botanicus Regius Primarius to Charles I and Apothecary to James I. Parkinson's Theatrum Botanicum is the largest of the English herbals (nearly double that of the first edition of Gerard's). "While Parkinson's reputation was established by the appearance of his Paradisus in 1629, the latter was overshadowed by the publication in 1640 of what was his much greater work, the Theatrum Botanicum . This digest attempted the description of nearly 4,000 plants, almost 1000 more than were contained in Johnson's edition of Gerard. The descriptions in many instances are new and great care was exercised to secure accuracy in indicating localities."- Green. The Botanicum was the most complete and beautifully presented English botanical treatise of its day. "One of the two main pillars of botany in England at the time of Ray" (Henrey). Parkinson's work, although based on Matthias L'Obel's works, was in large part original. It was the first work to describe 33 native plants, 13 of which grew near Parkinson's Middlesex home. Some of these plants, such as the Welsh … [Click Below for Full Description]

FULLER, Thomas.
Cambridge, R. Daniel for Thomas Buck, 1640. Small folio, pp. [xvi], 286, [2, blank], [28], with an engraved frontispiece and a folding map; one leaf (A1) slightly stained, but an excellent copy in eighteenth-century English calf, spine gilt and with red morocco label lettered in gilt; rubbed and slightly marked, front inner hinge strengthened, short split at head of upper joint; armorial bookplate of Rainald, Baron Knightley to front pastedown.First published the previous year. 'In 1639 Fuller's first major literary and historical work, The Historie of the Holy Warre, was published by the university press at Cambridge. The book was prefaced by commendatory verses by friends at Sidney Sussex, Queens', Corpus Christi, Jesus, and Trinity colleges. It was the first modern history of the crusades in English, aside from the account in Richard Knolles, Generall Historie of the Turks (1603), and was based on Fuller's extensive reading in medieval sources. He was sharply critical of the papacy for promoting the wars in the Holy Land and he analysed shrewdly the reasons for the movement's eventual failure' (Oxford DNB). A short chapter at the end concerns 'the greatnesse, strength, wealth, and wants of the Turkish empire'.Provenance: Rainald, Baron Knightley (1819-1895), of Fawsley Park, long-serving Conservative member of parliament for Northamptonshire and leading authority on whist.ESTC S121254.

Ovidius Naso, Publius ; Valentijn, Abraham (vert.)
Contemporary parchment binding. 150 x 90 mm, 12º: (dl 1:) pi2 *6 (-*4) A-K#12 L#8, [14] 256 pp.; (dl 2:) pi#2 A-Q#12, [4] 382 pp.; (dl 3:) pi#2 A-Q#12, [4] 338 [44] pp. Three identical engraved title pages with a circular portrait engraving. Part II has 15 etchings by C[oenraad] Decker. Little foxing, good copy. Prose translation (prozavertaling) of the complete works of Ovid (and more, because some poems are now known not to be Ovid’s). The works are arranged in the usual chronological order: first the heroines letters (Heldinnenbrieven) and erotic poetry (erotische poezie), then the metamorphoses, illustrated with 15 engravings by C Decker and in part III the incomplete calendar (only six of the 12 months) and mourning songs and letters from the Black Sea. These last two titles were written by Ovid while he was in exile. The translator, Abraham Valentijn (1640 – after 1697) was preceptor and rector at the Latin School in Dordrecht and from 1681 also the librarian for the Dordrecht city library. In his dedication to Mayor Adriaan van Blyenborch, he blames previous Ovid translators that they had not studied Greek historians and poets enough, thus "op tallijke blinde klippen gestooten sijn" (which means that they had a lot of difficulties translating). The 15 prints by Decker for the first edition of Valentijn’s translation, which appeared at Daniel Gaasbeeck at Leiden, are only a small part of the originally intended prints. When you read the message to the binder in the back, you’ll see that there was another set of prints (124 pieces!) that could have been bound with the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Machiavelli, Niccolo
R. Bishop for Wil: Hils, London. Rare first edition in English of Machiavelli's Prince, a seminal work in the foundation of modern political theory, and the great classic of political science. 12 mo, bound in full contemporary calf. From the library of William Constable, Baronet with his bookplate, in near fine condition. Housed in a custom full morocco clamshell box. An exceptional example, most rare and desirable in this condition. "Machiavelli founded the science of modern politics on the study of mankind. Politics was a science to be divorced entirely from ethics, and nothing must stand in the way of its machinery,.'for when a decision to be taken depends on the survival of one's country, no consideration may be given to justice or injustice, to kindness or cruelty, to actions being laudable or ignominious. That course must be followed which will save its existence and preserve its freedom" (PMM 63). The first manuscript of The Prince arrived in England by way of Thomas Cromwell almost 100 years before this 1640 publication in English, and the influence of "this little work" was great. Shakespeare and Marlowe abound with references to Machiavelli. His seemingly amoral stance earned him a villainous reputation in Elizabethan England, where his name was synonymous with evil and atheism (Lord Macaulay wrote: "We doubt whether any name in literary history be so generally odious"), but his keen and practical analysis were admired by such important Enlightenment figures as Bacon, Rousseau, and above all David Hume (Smith 32).

The dedication, to John Etheridge, Vicar of Halstead, Essex and former fellow of Queen's College Cambridge (1615-1626), is signed Edward Alliston and suggests that the work was printed posthumously. Thereafter follows an epistle in tribute to the translator signed Isaac Tinckler, which contains the somewhat condescending line: 'Now Ovid hath his wish, that he may be / In English read upon a Ladies knee.' The work includes a life of the Roman poet, as well as an adaptation of 'Clio's complaint for the death of Ovid'. A concurrently printed variant (STC 18948.5) omits Sparke's name in imprint.

London: Good. Here is the ultimate antiquarian heraldry volume! There are over 300 pages of coats of arms. As far as I can see they are all hand painted in vibrant colors. Ebay photography does not begin to do justice to the bright, mineral hardness of the colors of the coats of arms in this book. I don't know when these illuminations were done or by whom. The main title page gives the date as 1640. But another minor title page has been added and that gives the date as 1644. Go figure! The cover is weathered but complete. The front hinge is starting to separate but is still holding very strong. Because I'm absorbing the postage costs, the offer is open only to US residents. [Attributes: First Edition]

BARBA, ALBARO (ALVARO) ALONSO.
Franckfurt am Mayn, Johann Friedrich Fleischer, 1739. Small 8vo. Recent hvellum. 2 old names on titlepage. (4),198,(3) pp., some textillustr. in woodcut showing chemical apparatus. ¶ Scarce fourth German edition. The first part of the book deals with the generation of metals...the second with the extraction of silver by mercury. He cites alchemical literature on the origin of the earth, minerals, salts, adding clear descriptions. He excelled in the "Treatment of silver ores by amalgation, using processes that he himself had discovered and that were in large measure responsible for the wealth of the province." (DSB)."Barba was a native of the village of Lepe in Andalusia. He entered the church and became pastor of St. bernards at Potosi, in South America. While there he had the opportunity of studying minerals and mining, extraction of silver and assaying, and became very skilful in these branches of science. He embodied his knowledge and experience in the treatise "El arte de los metallos", published in Madrid in 1640 in 4to, with illustrations. It was kept as secret as possible by the Spaniards, but when Edw. Montagu, Earl of Sandwich, was ambassador extraordinary to Spain, he obtained a copy and translated two of the five books into English in 1669. The first book appeared at London in 1670, and the two together in 1674. Two German translations followed, one from the English, and long after, another from the French; and two in French from the Spanish." (Ferguson I: p.70-71). - Duveen p.42-43 (but not this edition). Thorndike VII: pp. 257-61.

GROTIUS, HUGO. - FIRST TEXTBOOK IN CHRISTIAN APOLOGETICS.
Lugduni Batavorum (Leiden), 1640. 12mo. Bound in one contemp. full vellum. Small spots to vellum. MS-title on spine faint. (6),327,(7);372 pp. Light marginal browning. From the library of the Danish zoologist Henrik Krøyer. ¶ Early edition of this famous work arguing for the truth of Christianity and aiming to convert Muslims and Jews to Christianity.While in Paris, Grotius set about rendering into Latin prose a work which he had compiled in prison, providing rudimentary yet systematic arguments for the truth of Christianity. (Showcasing Grotius' skill as a poet, the earlier Dutch version of the work, Bewijs van den waren Godsdienst (pub. 1622), was written entirely in didactic verse.) The Latin work was first published in 1627 as De veritate religionis Christianae."It was the first Protestant textbook in Christian apologetics, and was divided into six books. Part of the text dealt with the emerging questions of historical consciousness concerning the authorship and content of the canonical gospels. Other sections of the work addressed pagan religion, Judaism and Islam. What also distinguished this work in the history of Christian apologetics is its precursor role in anticipating the problems expressed in Eighteenth century Deism, and that Grotius represents the first of the practitioners of legal or juridical apologetics in the defence of Christian belief. Hugely popular, the book was translated from Latin into English, Arabic, Persian and Chinese by Edward Pococke for use in missionary work in the East and remained in print until the end of the nineteenth century."(Wikipe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Nel capitolo L dell'opera, dedicato alla luce cinerea che si può scorgere nella parte tenebrosa della luna, specialmente quando è poco distante dalla congiunzione con il sole, il L. cercò di confutare l'opinione di Galilei - già esposta nel Sidereus nuncius -, secondo cui il fenomeno non è altro che l'effetto dei raggi solari riflessi dalla Terra sulla luna; il L., invece, ne attribuiva l'origine a una luminescenza prodotta dall'atmosfera che circonda la luna, la quale, analogamente alla "pietra lucifera di Bologna", avrebbe avuto la proprietà di conservare per un certo tempo la luce in precedenza pervenutale dal s … [Click Below for Full Description]

BLAEU, JOAN
Regno di Napoli "Regno di Napoli"?, kopergravure rond 1640 vervaardigd door Joan Blaeu. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. ca. 38,5 x 50 cm. Met aan de achterzijde in het Nederlands een beschrijving van het gebied. Het koninkrijk Napels maakte in die tijd deel uit van de Spaanse gebieden van het Habsburgse rijk. In de rechter bovenhoek zien we dan ook het Spaanse wapen. De kaart is verder fraai versierd met de kleurige provinciewapens in de kaartrand. Als bron voor deze kaart maakte Blaeu gebruik van een atlas van de Italiaanse kartograaf Giovanni Antonio Magini (1555-1617), wiens kaartboek Italia in 1620 postuum in Bologna was uitgegeven. De kaart werd maakte ook onderdeel uit van Blaeu's Atlas Major. Het uitgeven van de Atlas Major wordt, met bijna 600 dubbelzijdige van koperen platen gedrukte gravures en 3000 pagina's tekst, gezien als een van de grote prestaties van de Gouden Eeuw. Een onderneming met een gecompliceerde planning, financiering en inzet van mankracht en specialisten. Ook hedendaagse uitgevers erkennen Joan Blaeu's superioriteit, drie?nhalve eeuw geleden. De Blaeu atlas was het meest kostbare gedrukte boek dat je in de tweede helft van de 17e eeuw kon krijgen, afhangend van de taal en kleuring tussen fl. 330 en fl. 460. (Een assistent boekverkoper verdiende rond 1660 fl. 2 per week, de huurprijs van een boekwinkel lag tussen fl. 400 - fl. 700 per jaar.) De atlas werd dan ook gemaakt voor een kleine groep geprivilegieerden, die over het intellect en met name de middelen beschikten, om een meesterwerk als de Atlas Major te kunnen waarderen.

The first translation into English of Ovid's Fasti, done by Master of Arts John Gower, graduate of Jesus College, Cambridge. The dedication, to John Etheridge, Vicar of Halstead, Essex and former fellow of Queen's College Cambridge (1615-1626), is signed Edward Alliston and suggests that the work was printed posthumously. Thereafter follows an epistle in tribute to the translator signed Isaac Tinckler, which contains the somewhat condescending line: 'Now Ovid hath his wish, that he may be / In English read upon a Ladies knee.' The work includes a life of the Roman poet, as well as an adaptation of 'Clio's complaint for the death of Ovid'. A concurrently printed variant (STC 18948.5) omits Sparke's name in imprint.

Parkinson's Theatrum Botanicum is the largest of the English herbals (nearly double that of the first edition of Gerard's). "While Parkinson's reputation was established by the appearance of his Paradisus in 1629, the latter was overshadowed by the publication in 1640 of what was his much greater work, the Theatrum Botanicum . This digest attempted the description of nearly 4,000 plants, almost 1000 more than were contained in Johnson's edition of Gerard. The descriptions in many instances are new and great care was exercised to secure accuracy in indicating localities."- Green. The Botanicum was the most complete and beautifully presented English botanical treatise of its day. "One of the two main pillars of botany in England at the time of Ray" (Henrey). Parkinson's work, although based on Matthias L'Obel's works, was in large part original. It was the first work to describe 33 native plants, 13 of which grew near Parkinson's Middlesex home.

Much of the contents of this compilation was used by John Foxe in his portrayal of Cranmer in his ‘Book of Martyrs’. According to the British Museum Catalogue, this work is “A code of ecclesiastical law, intended for use in the Church of England, but never ratified by Parliament.
