Earl of Clare.
FAIRFAX, Edward., Lord. "Your Lordships very affectionat kinsman and servant, Clare" to Lord Fairfax, asking for Fairfax's help with lodgings and a stable when Holles and Lord North attend the King at York on the 24th of the month. One page, one professional repair at head; with the integral address leaf, 'To the Right honourable the Lord Fayrfax at his house in York, or in his absence to Mrs Fayrfax his daughter in law", part red wax seal remaining. London, 15 September 1640. ~ Following defeat at the battle of Newburn, the Royalist army under Thomas Fairfax retreated towards Yorkshire, leaving the two northern counties in the undisputed possession of the Scots. Charles hastened with reinforcements to York, where he found himself at the head of 20,000 men, with sixty pieces of cannon. But here he was beset with difficulties; his army was inexperienced and of doubtful loyalty, and its maintenance in the field could not long be sustained without supplies. Ten years had passed since Charles had dissolved his last parliament, and he had ruled in the meantime without its aid. He now summoned the peers of the realm to meet him in a great council, to be held at York, on the 24th September 1640. The people viewed this return to ancient feudal practice with alarm, and the friends of the king advised him to summon a new parliament, to which he reluctantly assented. The Great Council in York met at the Dean's House next to the Minster. Ferdinando Fairfax 2nd Lord Fairfax of Cameron (1584-1648), was commander of the parliamentary forces in Yorkshire during the Civi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jansson
1640 - Amsterdam c1640 copper engraved map; 39 x 50 cm ; exc. cond. Beautifully decorated map of the East Indies with a nice large cartouche, vignette, scales and 2 windroses. This is one of Jansson's historically most important maps, first published in 1630, being the first map to show evidence of the route taken by the ?Duyfken?, the ship that discovered Australia. The Dutch East India Company had placed a secrecy order on Blaeu, their official cartographer. It is assumed that Jansson either had access to the original map used by the ?Duyfken? or the Hessel Gerritz? map of the Pacific. Beneath New Guinea 'Duyfkens Eyland' is marked. Jansson belonged to the influential map publishing Dutch family, publishing first in Arnhem, then later in Amsterdam. In 1612, he married the daughter of Jodocus Hondius and Colette van den Keere as well as starting up his own business in Amsterdam where he published atlases, maps and globes. In the same year, his father-in-law died and he assisted his widowed mother-in-law with the publication of the Mercator/Hondius atlas. After her and her son?s, Jodocus the Younger, death, Jansson together with his brother-in-law, Henricus Hondius, revised the atlas which, from 1638 onwards, became known as ?Atlas Novus? and was published in several languages over many years. From the early 1640s, Jansson continued on his own to expand the ?Atlas? which then became known as ?Atlas Maior? with editions in Dutch, French, Latin, German ad English. [ref: 1996 ]

Johannes JANSSONIUS
Amsterdam, 1640. Carta dell'Africa Orientale raffigurante il mitico Impero del Prete Gianni. Decorata da un meraviglioso cartiglio. Edizione a cura degli eredi Janssonius, dopo il 1656. Coloritura coeva, in ottime condizioni. An attractive map of the Eastern African and the fictitious kingdom of Prester John. The map shows a major section of central and eastern Africa including Mozambique north to present day Sudan The map contains numerous coastal place names such as Mozambique Island, Quiloa, Mombaza, and Melinde indicating the importance of the area to both Arab, Portuguese, and traders and explorers from other countries. The Congo region on the west coast of Africa is included in this map. The two Ptolemaic lakes of Zaire and Zaflan are in the lower portion of the map. Lake Niger, and the supposed course of the Niger River, is shown flowing westward. This map is based on Ortelius' map of Prester John of 1573. The myth of Prester John, the good king defeating the enemies of Christianity, was in part a response to Mongol and Islamic pressures on Christian Europe. Initially, Prester John was placed in Asia, but later in East Africa. The center of the map above ,Amara mons, the kingdom of Prester John, shows a note in Latin to the effect that here the sons are Prester John are held in confinement. 490 390mm

Modern full brown morocco, with gilt-lettered leather label on spine. Raised bands. Decorative head-, tailpieces and initials. Begun by Johannes Buxtorf in 1609, and completed by his son in 1639, this second edition of "Lexicon chaldaicum, talmudicum et rabbinicum" immediately became a standard reference work for Christian scholars in Jewish studies. (a new but very imperfect edition was published as late as 1866). Because of the time needed to be completed, the "Lexicon chaldaicum, talmudicum et rabbinicum" has often been referred to as the "opus triginta annorum," work of thirty years (1609-1639). Integrating a variety of Roman, Italic, Greek, Hebrew and Gothic typefaces, this lexicon is also an impressive example of 17th century printing. The text, in two columns, is arranged alphabetically according to the Hebrew alphabet, however, the text itself is in Latin. Unfortunately, this work is lacking the engraved frontispiece portrait of Johannes Buxtorf and the additional engraved title. Moderate rubbing along front joint.

Aselli "records the discovery of the lacteal vessels. While performing vivisection on a dog that had recently fed, Aselli noticed a network of vessels in the mesentery and along the peritoneal surface of the intestine. The vessels released a whitish fluid similar to milk when incised, so Aselli called them lacteas, sive albas venas. He made a systematic study of these vessels in different species of animals, noting the chronological relationship between their engorgement and the animal's last meal, and erroneously conjectured that the vessels led to the liver; it was not until Jean Pecquet's discovery of the thoracic duct and its continuity with the lacteal vessels that the process of absorption was clearly established."

Manoscritto (Siena)
1640. 4to (cm. 29) Manoscritto di 5 cc.nn. (la quinta è bianca), 86 cc. num. e 19 cc.nn. (bianche). Testo in prevalenza su 20 righe. Nitida, bella grafia. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena con titolo (’Storia di Siena’) ms. al ds. Ottimo stato di conservazione. Il manoscritto contiene, tra l’altro, ‘Numero dell’Anime della Città e masse... Famiglie della città sopra ducati cento d’entrata... Numero di Cavalieri, Dottori, Notari, Famiglie nobili... Denaro che si rigira in Siena... Descrizione di tutte le Città . Terre e Castelli ad uno ad uno con il numero de’ Fuochi, Anime, Poderi Ecclesiastici...’. Questa Relazione sullo Stato di Siena e suo Dominio sembra sia stata ordinata dal Granduca Ferdinando II e redatta da A. Ventura, F. De Medici, B. Fantini e G. Biringucci. In quel periodo si era infatti verificata una diminuzione dell’industria e un incremento dei conventi con conseguente crescita dei religiosi regolari insieme ad un decremento della popolazione. Ciò aveva provocato una contrazione delle entrate e un aggravamento del debito delle singole Comunità , costituendo naturalmente fonte di grave preoccupazione. Rarissimo e importantissimo documento. L’unica altra copia a noi nota è conservata all’Archivio di Stato di Siena, ma differisce in alcuni dettagli dalla nostra e non contiene i dati della popolazione relativi agli anni 1596 e 1638. Inoltre manca dell’aggiornamento degli stessi dati fino al 1657.

1640. that is, for Reparations, in its final expanded form, in an attractive upright hand, with, in another hand, the English Commissioners' Answer, dated 7th January 1640 (1641 modern reckoning), and the Scottish Reply, all with transcriptions. (On 8th September 1640, after invading Northumberland and Durham, the Scots wrote to Charles I at York repeating their demands in Seven Articles, drawn up by their recent Parliament. Negotiations were begun at Ripon and were transferred to London after the Long Parliament opened on 3rd November). Henderson recalls the Scots' "distresses in our religion and liberties", saying "our ... supplications for redress were answered ... with the terrors of an army" (in June 1639), and that "after a Pacification" (at Berwick), "greater preparations were made for a war, whereby many acts of hostility were done against us both by sea and land, the kingdom wanted administration of justice, and we constrained to take arms for our defence", being forced also "to maintain so many thousands as were spoiled of their ships and goods ... and many others who lived by fishing, and whose callings are upholden from hand to mouth by sea trade". The Scots' only hope other than "perfect slavery ... in our souls, lives & means" has been "to come into England ... Since therefore the war on our part ... is defensive", and "in common equity, the defendant should not be suffered to perish in his just and necessary defence ... it is not against reason ... to demand some reparation of this kind". The Scots attribute all their "losses and wrongs" to "that prevalent fa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Botero, Giovanni.
Venice, Giunta, 1640. 4to. (8), 800, (36) pp. With 4 folding engr. plates (Europe, Asia, Africa, America). (Bound with) II: The same. Della ragioni di stato, libri dieci. Ibid., 1640. (8), 264 pp. Contemp. vellum with ms. spine title. Famous geographical treatise by Giovanni Botero (1544-1617), with Arabia pictured on both the Asia and the Africa plate, and discussions of the Arabian Peninsula (pp. 120 ff.), the Middle East (pp. 123 ff.), "Arabia troglodotica" [!] (p. 130 f.), Egypt (pp. 131 ff.). Originally conceived as a statistical examination of the ecumenical propagation of Christianity, in subsequent editions the work gradually expanded until it formed a comprehensive repertory of anthropology and geography, with systematic accounts of the physical properties, demographics, economic resources, military power, and political constitution of all states of the world. - Appended to this is Botero's famous treatise "Della ragion di Stato" (The Reason of State), in which Botero argues - against Machiavelli - that a prince's power must be based on some form of consent of his subjects, and princes must make every effort to win the people's affection and admiration. - Some browning throughout; occasional insignificant edge defects and small tears; traces of old library stamps. Graesse I, 504. Cf. Cox I, 71.

Small wormhole in upper margin of some leaves, 3Y6 and 3Z1-2 with tears mended, margins of 2 leaves of index strengthened, last leaf (errata) with a small hole affecting about 7 words and laid down, all the repairs apparently done at a very early date, indeed the wormhole in the index goes through the repair paper (the first time I have seen this), old reversed calf, morocco label, joints repaired, corners a little worn. Despite these blemishes this remains a good copy of a herbal which is difficult to find complete, let alone in good condition. The author, a London pharmacist, received the title of Royal Apothecary from James I. Later Charles I appointed him as his chief botanist ("Botanicus Regius Primarius"). He had a private garden in Long Acre (Theatrum p.609) in which he grew many rarities. Work on his herbal, which was delayed for a number of years by the success of Johnson's edition of Gerarde, was greatly helped by the unpublished notes of the French botanist, Matthias L'Obel, who had lived in North London for the last years of his life. The result was an enormous folio work containing descriptions of nearly 4,000 plants (almost 1,000 more than the 1636 Gerarde) including some twenty-eight species not previously recorded in Britain. The most important of these were the strawb … [Click Below for Full Description]
