BEROALDO, Filippo].
1640. KVK & WorldCat (1 copy); cf. Kruyskamp, Jan Mommaert en het "Stichtelyck Proces", in: Het Boek XXX, pp. 306-312 (1640 ed.). Second known copy of the third edition (1635) of a rare satirical Dutch adaptation (first and second editions 1634) of a moralistic story in Latin by Filippo Beroaldo (1453-1505), possibly intended in this adaptation to satirize the Princes of Orange. The quotations from classical sources are given in Latin, each followed by a Dutch verse translation that takes some liberties with the text. Pieter Nootmans (active 1627-1635) contributed a verse about the book, printed on the back of the title-page. Following the main text is a drinking song by H. Rulant (active 1632-1634), with its own part-title, which had been published separately in 1632. We have located only one other copy of the present edition, in the library of Tresoar in Leeuwarden.The British Library database of bindings includes one binding by this Ghent binder. The title-page is worn and dirty, with a small abrasion obliterating the letter S in "Stichtigh", and the upper outside corner of the last leaf has been restored, with the loss of a few words of the text of the added drinking song. The binding is good, with some cracks in the hinges and minor damage along the edges.

PARKINSON, John.
London: Thomas Cotes, 1640. Folio, with elaborately engraved title-page and about 2700 woodcut illustrations in the text; in an attractive later binding of smooth polished calf, with the armorial bookplate of "Brodie of Brodie" An especially good copy of this famous and beautiful English herbal, 'one of the two main pillars of botany in England till the time of Ray' (James Edward Smith). The largest herbal in English, this was also the last great medicinally-based plant study, by an author who thought of himself as first and foremost an apothecary.Early botanical works were frequently illustrated with original woodcuts, and this book is a marvellous example of the impressive beauty that the relatively naïve method of woodcut illustration conveys in a botanical work, with a flower portrayed in line in singular contrast to the accompanying botanical description: altogether two thousand seven hundred woodblocks were individually cut for this massive herbal, which describes more than four thousand plants, most of them with medicinal properties.Parkinson had given notice of his intention to compile an herbal in his Paradisus terrestris of 1629, but was delayed by the publication of the second Johnson edition of Gerarde's Herball, in 1636. This delay meant that Parkinson's work had time to grow much larger than originally planned, and on publication it included about one thousand more plants than Gerarde could, and describes many species not previously recorded.Natural history collecting in exotic lands was actively pursued from the earliest period of botanical study, and the ear … [Click Below for Full Description]

Parkinson, John.
First edition: Over 3,000 species and their virtues described for the use of apothecaries and herbalists. Parkinson (1567-1650), who served officially as Royal Botanist to Charles I and unofficially as gardening mentor to his queen, Henrietta Maria, was also one of the founders of the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries -- to which the allegorical frontispiece here may refer with the rhinoceros in its upper portion. The author of Paradisi in sole paradisus terrestris, Parkinson was much acclaimed by his contemporaries and by later botanists; Henrey cites Sir James Edward Smith's assessment that "this work [the Theatrum botanicum] and the herbal of Gerarde were the two main pillars of botany in England till the time of Ray." Gerard and Parkinson indeed competed in publication, with the printing of the present work having been delayed several years so as to avoid marketplace clash with Johnson's edition of Gerard's herbal. In the present work, Parkinson divided the plants by classes such as "Sweete smelling Plants," "Purging Plants," saxifrages, wound herbs, cooling herbs, "Strange and Outlandish Plants," etc. Most of the entries are illustrated with in-text woodcuts, interspersed with pages wholly occupied by four images. Among the Americana content here are descriptions of Virginia bluebells, Peruvian mechacan, potatoes, and an assortment of "Ginny peppers" (with dire warnings regarding their fiery hotness); also present are => 28 previously unrecorded British species, including the strawberry tree and the lady's slipper orchid. The index and tables are organized by L … [Click Below for Full Description]

Félix de JOUVENEL des URSINS, Félix de JUVENEL
AN IMPORTANT 917 PAGE FOLIO MANUSCRIPT (no author or date specified), of an original work preserved by the heirs of the author, Félix Jouvenel des Ursins (also known as Jouvenel or Juvenal, 1617 - ?). Jouvenel, a noted scholar who devoted his life to his studies, was the author of a number of works.The manuscript is mentioned in Antoine-Alexandre Barbier's Examen critique et complément des dictionnaires historiques of 1820.Written in a fine, clear hand with numerous additions, corrections, crossings-out and marginal notes.Bound in full contemporary vellum. Spine titled in black ink (partly illegible), ties, stitching visible. Tear to head, some staining to covers. A few spots, but the paper well preserved. Large engraved armorial ex-libris of Henri de Juvenel, Châtelain of Montpezat (1810-1875) inside upper cover. The manuscript can be dated to between 1640 and 1645 thanks to the author's references to early 17th century works as his principal historiographical sources, and especially to the following observation: "in any case, it has come to pass that in our time, the chronicles of the Moor Abulcaçim Tarif Abentarique have been translated from Arabic into Spanish."Several things confirm that this is Jouvenel's original manuscript. The spelling of the words "défaicte", "loing", "mesprisable", "enfans", "tesmoing" (p. 160) and "autresfois" (p. 83) are in accordance with that established in Jean Nicot's Thresor de la langue francoyse of 1606. The spelling of these words changed during the 17th century and by 1694 the Dictionnaire de l'Académie has them as: "defaite", "loin", … [Click Below for Full Description]

MACHIAVELLI, NICCOLÒ
London: R. Bishop for William Hils & Daniel Pakeman, 1640. First edition in English of one of the great books of the Renaissance and a classic of political philosophy. Machiavelli, long a diplomat for the Florentine Republic, was personally acquainted with many of the great leaders of the Renaissance including Lorenzo de Medici (the dedicatee of Il Principe), Louis XII of France, Emperor Maximilian, Catherine Sforza, and Piero Soderini. In 1502 he was sent as the Florentine envoy to the court of Cesare Borgia, duke of Valentinois. In Borgia he found an audacious and strong willed leader capable of deception and violence to achieve his ends, yet a man who appeared at all times both controlled and diplomatically prudent. Borgia provided the model for Machiavelli’s ideal prince, Valentino. His book addressed the problem of the unification of a self-reliant Italy. “It was Machiavelli’s intense preoccupation with this problem– what a state is and how to found one in existing circumstances– which caused the many riddles of his speculative writings He was by no means indifferent to private virtue but in the realm of politics he postponed morals to political expediency” (Britannica 11th ed.). “The Prince is far more than a book of directions to any one of the many Italian princelings. 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. Many of the remedies he proposed for the rescue of Italy were eventually applied. His concept of the qualities dem … [Click Below for Full Description]

Franckfurt am Mayn: Anth. Humm, 1640. 1 gestochener Kupfertitel: Schwalbacher Saur- Unndt Prodel-Brunnen Beschreibung. Ludivici vonn Hörnigk, 7 Blätter, 260 Seiten, 1 Blätter Register. 16,7 x 10,5 cm, zeitgenössischer? mit Kiebitzpapier bezogener Pappband, mit goldgprägtem rückentitel auf Rückenschild, dreiseitiger Rotschnitt. Durch Register erschlossen. \"Bad Schwalbach (bis 21. April 1927 Langenschwalbach) ist die Kreisstadt im Rheingau-Taunus-Kreis in Hessen. Die Stadt ist eines der ältesten hessischen Heilbäder, zugleich ist sie seit 2014 ein anerkannter Kneippkurort. Bad Schwalbach ist ein Kurort etwa 20 Kilometer nordwestlich der hessischen Landeshauptstadt Wiesbaden. Die Kernstadt liegt in 289 bis 465 Meter Höhe im westlichen Hintertaunus sehr langgestreckt auf 2,5 Kilometer Länge in einem linken Seitental der Aar, das vom Nesselbach durchflossen wird. Über 56 Prozent der Gemarkungsfläche besteht aus Wald. Bad Schwalbach wurde als Langinswalbach im Jahre 1352 erstmals urkundlich erwähnt und war seit 1364 als Pfarrei bekannt. Weitere historisch dokumentierte Erwähnungen des Ortsnamens sind Swalbach 1360 und Langenschwalbach Anfang des 16. Jahrhunderts. Erste zuverlässige Berichte über die Mineralquellen gibt es ab 1568 durch den Wormser Arzt Tabernaemontanus, der den Ort auch in seinem 1581 erschienenen Werk Neuw Wasserschatz bekannt machte. Der Speyerer Weihbischof Heinrich Fabricius hielt sich bereits 1583 zur Kur am Sauerbrunnen von Bad Schwalbach auf.[5] Obwohl Langenschwalbach im Dreißigjährigen Krieg völlig zerstört wurde, wurde es schnell wieder aufgebaut, de … [Click Below for Full Description]

REINZER, Franz.
- De Backer & Sommervogel VI, col. 1640; Landwehr, German Emblem Books 494; Praz, p. 468. Second or third edition in the original Latin of a beautiful, instructive emblem book by the Jesuit Franz Reinzer (1661-1708), curiously mixing science and philosophical politics, including moral lessons. Quotations from scientists and classical philosophers accompany beautiful emblems with meteorites, flying dragons, lightning, comets, rainbows, fata morganas, earthquakes, underground fires, minerals, metals, etc., with references in the margins and allegories of politics and public life and wise lessons drawn from them. Both the texts and the emblems show the influence of the Jesuit scientist Athanasius Kircher. Wolfgang Josephus Kadoriza or Catoriza was a painter, active at Linz between ca. 1697 and 1730. With the engraved armorial bookplate of Christoph Wenzel, Graf von Nostitz (1643-1712) of Schloss Lobris in Lower Silesia, and the bookplate of Bob Luza (1893-1980). With about 1 mm shaved off the head of the frontispiece on the right side, but generally in fine condition. The binding very good. A beautiful meteorological Jesuit emblem book influenced by Athanasius Kircher.

Law. England.) [BRETON (John le, Bishop of Hereford)]
Printed by the assignes of Iohn Moore 1640 - 1 vol. bound in 2, interleaved, and annotated, with the Corrections divided between the volumes more or less as approriate (the 21 folios below), woodcut printer's device on title, main text (in Law French) in black letter, ff. [xvi], 64, 66-175, 175-238, 240-249, 245-287, [21], small 8vo, old calf, rebacked, corners very worn, sound. 'Britton' was first published in 1533, and edition which Wingate says is 'quite worn out, and exceeding full of manifest Imperfections.' The treatise is traditionally attributed to the Bishop of Hereford (d. 1275), but is largely derived from Bracton. There is an early ownership inscription, longitudinal, by the fore-margin of the title of a member of the Middle Temple, and another at the top of the title, 'Ed. Hatton, 17 Jan [18]17', the latter being the annotator. His notes, or quite often queries, are not all that prolific, but they do extend through the entire work. The previous owner, who signs himself 'Johannis Georgii', must be the John Georges (of Cirencester) who was admitted to Middle Temple 1st July 1615, then was called to the Bar in May 1623, made a Bencher in November 1651, and Treasurer in 1658 (with thanks to Renae Satterley of Middle Temple Library for this identification).
