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.

According to Humboldt and Schomburgk, it was after the return of Raleigh's and Keymis's expedition that Hondius was the first in his 'Nieuwe Caerte van het goudreyke landt Guiana' (1599), to introduce the Laguna Parima with its city Manoa in a map We find the lake also in the 'Nieuwe Wereldt' of De Laet in 1630, and in the editions of that year in other languages" (Justin Winsor, ed., "Narrative and Critical History of America," p. 587).

The map has the best west coast delineation to date. He also does not get drawn into the debate about the North West Passage, preferring to cut his map short of these latitudes" (Burden, p. 285).

DE LAET, Joannes (1581-1649).
Leiden: Chez Bonaventure & Abraham Elseviers, 1640. Single sheet, (13 ½ x 16 inches, full margins showing the platemark). Fine engraved map of eastern Canada, with a large compass rose, showing an accurate Prince Edward Island and the first depiction of a north-south orientation of Lake Champlain (old central fold, edges browned). ONE OF THE FOUNDATION MAPS OF CANADA (Burden). First French edition, first published in Dutch in 1625. This is the first printed map to show Prince Edward Island accurately, and also the first to show Lake Champlain with a north-south orientation. "The map is of considerable importance to the early cartography of Canada and is the source map of several derivatives. Although the cartography of Quebec and the Maritimes in the map draws heavily on Champlain 1613, the configuration of Lake Champlain and Lake St Pierre is considerably improved. C. Blanc (Cape Cod) though, is retained, but a realistic Prince Edward Island appears in its correct position. Newfoundland, however, is given a somewhat unique shape. O'Dea (1971) points out that the De Laet map has more Portuguese names on the coast of Newfoundland than French ones, and it seems reasonable to infer a Portuguese source for the map. Newfoundland was copied by Coronelli much later in the century. Similarly, the map of Newfoundland and the Maritimes by Blaeu, incorporated the De Laet Portuguese place names without change" (Kershaw, p. 88). Burden 230. [Attributes: First Edition]

Donne, John
London: Printed for Richard Royston, in Ivie-Lane, and Richard Marriot in S. Dunstans Church-yard in Fleetstreet, 1640. First edition, and also the first appearance of Walton's "Life and Death of Dr Donne", later state of the additional title. Engraved portrait by Merian (in second state, as usual). A-B6, C4, B-Aaaa6, Bbbb4 , Cccc7. Bound without first and last blanks (A1 and Ccc8). 1 vols. 4to (344x223mm.). Contemporary calf, early neat rebacking, new endpapers. Portrait with strengthening at inner margin. Some wear at outer margins of the first four leaves. Bookplate Bibliothecam Doncastriensem and ownership inscription on title-page with gift inscription to them from the Reverend Lees Ward of Jesus College, Cambridge, "Ad Bibliothecam Doncastriensem Ex Dono Viiri Reverend Lees Ward Coll Jesu apud Cantab. Socii.". Donne remains a towering figure in English literature no less for his preaching than for his poetry. "Of Donne's estimated 180 sermons, the extraordinary total of 160 survive - monumental evidence that he was both a prolific and a popular preacher. The reasons for his popularity are clear: the sermons are not only rich in learning and curious lore; they are characteristically personal and powerful in their phrasing ... At his most characteristic, he is the spokesman before God of a virile, unconquerable humanity" (Norton, 913, 918). Now considered "very rare," this volume of sermons is one of three folios issued by Donne's son between 1640 and 1660, after Donne's death (Allibone, 513). In addition to Donne's addresses for major Christian festivals and his master … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ovid
London: Printed by J.L. for Andrew Hebb, 1640. Fourth edition of the Sandys translation. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Ovid, additional engraved title-page by Salamon Savery after Francisco Clein, and 15 engraved plates. Folio. Bound in full early twentieth-century red crushed levant morocco gilt, skillfully rebacked with the original spine laid down, by Stern & Dess, circa 1920. Portrait and engraved title slightly waterstained, the latter with one small closed tear repaired, else fine, in a brown cloth morocco-backed slipcase. Fourth edition of the Sandys translation. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Ovid, additional engraved title-page by Salamon Savery after Francisco Clein, and 15 engraved plates. Folio. Penned on the Banks of the James River, Virginia, 1626. Sandys' translation of the Metamorphosis is of special note as being the first major poetic production to come from American soil. Sandys became Treasurer of the Virginia Company in 1621 and sailed to America with the Governor, Sir Francis Wyatt. Before leaving, he had started the translation, but it was on the banks the James River that he finally finished it in 1626, dedicating it to Charles I. According to Kunitz and Haycraft, "he seems to have been of rather a quarrelsome disposition, and after many differences with his fellow members and with his neighbors he returned to England for good in 1631." His Ovid remained a very popular translation for over a century after his time, and greatly admired by Pope. This was the last lifetime edition, and also contains the first book of his translation of Virgil … [Click Below for Full Description]

Historians emphasize Sully's role in building a strong centralized administrative system in France using coercion and highly effective new administrative techniques. From 1596, when he was added to Henry's finance commission, Sully introduced some order into France's economic affairs.

SMEATON, John.
Second edition in book form of these three papers, detailing the experiments "that constituted his chief contribution to science" (DSB). The first and longest paper is best known for Smeaton's demonstration that overshot waterwheels, contrary to popular opinion, are twice as efficient as undershot."Smeaton was not only the greatest civil engineer of the 18th century but 'the first to achieve distinction as an engineering scientist' (Skempton). His reputation largely sprang from these three seminal papers. The first and most famous, on wind- and watermills ('justly regarded as the most masterly report ever published on this subject', comments Samuel Smiles) established an empirical tradition in British engineering as well as the use of scale model testing in fluid mechanics. The second paper, which grew directly out of the first, is concerned with prime-mover experiments, particularly in relation to the concept of work, while the third, on the collision of bodies, sets out successfully to measure exactly the loss of energy on impact using an instrument designed and made by Smeaton himself. In all three he is concerned to apply sound theory to practical engineering and 'in taking this positionwas equalled by few and excelled by none (Norman Smith, 'Scientific Work' in John Smeaton FRS, edited by A.W. Skempton).Skempton, British civil engineering 1640-1840, 1344.8vo, pp. vii, 110, (2) adverts, 5 folding engraved plates from drawings by Smeaton, 2 folding tables, other tables in the text.
