Besler, Basilus
Nuremburg, 1640. Second & preferred edition. Published in an edition of 300 in 1613, the Hortus Eysttensis is the earliest large folio botanical and is considered one of the greatest botanical books ever created. This is a very strong impression, with an early hand notating the species names in German below the label for each flower.Archivally framed. The fresh, strong impression & absence of any bleed-through of text from the verso would suggest that this is the second & preferred edition, published in 1640, but it cannot be categorically stated because of the framing.

La vie quotidienne a Paris de 1820 a 1824, d'apres les lithographies de Marlet et de Carle Vernet. Paris: Grund, 1950-1951. 4to.

The Game of the Goose (Das Gansespiel (german), Gioco dell'oca (italian), Jeu de l'oie (french), Juego de la Oca (spanish), Ganzenbord (dutch), Gaspelet (swedish) is thought to be the prototype for many of the commercial European racing board games of recent centuries. The game is therefore mostly played in Europe and seen as family entertainment. Commercial versions of the game appeared in the 1880s and 1890s, and feature typical old European characteristics such as an old well and kids in clothes from the period. It is claimed that the game was originally a gift from Francesco I de' Medici of Florence to King Philip II of Spain sometime between 1574 and 1587. In June 1597 John Wolfe had attested that the game existed in London.In his 1899 novel Le Testament d'un excentrique, Jules Verne uses the United States of America as a giant real-life Game of the Goose board, on which seven players race each other in pursuit of a $60,000,000 inheritance.

García, Carlos.
Presso Cristoforo Tomasini, 1640. An expatriate living in Paris, Carlos García (ca. 1575 - ca. 1630) wrote on a variety of topics and in different genres ranging from a picaresque novel to essays on politics. The original Spanish title of the work offered here in Italian translation is La oposicion y conjuncion de los dos grandes luminares de la tierra, and was first published in Paris in 1617. This translation first appeared in 1637 and is from the pen of Clodio Vilopoggio. The subject of this work is the rivalry between Spain and France for political and religious supremacy in the Catholic realm of Europe, but the author also discusses national traits, as he sees them, such as manner of dressing, walking, eating, and talking.

Five act comedy of intrigue in prose. Set in Naples. A Baron has two sons, Timante and the chevalier. Timante wishes to marry a young widow who is a countess, while his father wants him to marry the daughter of the marquis. The countess has a beautiful young ward, Zaide, of unknown origin, who was brought to the countess by a sea captain. The intrigue of the play involves an attempt by the second son, the chevalier, to successfully disguise himself as a mute valet in order to be near Zaide, with whom he is in love. Unfortunately, the sea captain will not let Zaide marry a mute, and the Baron will not let the Chevalier marry Zaide. A happy ending for all involved follows the unraveling of the girl's true parentage. Le Muet is based on Eunuchus of Terence. This version is considered to be superior to the adaptation of La Fontaine because it is cleverly modernized. The play was very popular until the death of J.-B. Raisin, in 1693, who acted the character of Frontin, the valet who dominates the intrigue. It was republished and revived in 1716 and acted "with fair frequency" until 1832 (Lancaster). Jean Palaprat, dramatist born in Toulouse, is best known for this play, also for L'Avocat Pathelin (1 … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Este libro apareció al poco tiempo de la "Proclamación Católica de Sala". En la obra el autor justifica la conocida revuelta de Cataluña (denominada "dels segadors"), que afectó a gran parte del Principado entre los años 1640 y 1652 dado el mal gobierno del Conde Duque de Olivares, llegando las instituciones catalanas a pedir la protección del Rey de Francia Luis XIII, al que rindieron vasallaje. Pero hete aquí que los franceses resultaron ser bastante más absorventes que los castellanos, o más bién, que la monarquía hispánica de Felipe IV. Tras esto, volvieron a pedir las instituciones catalanas la protección soberana del Rey Felipe, aunque ya fue tarde y la … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Bernard Alsop and Thomas Fawcett, 1640. Very Good. [6], 46 p.; 8 cm. In plain brown wrapper with "Priviledges of Parliament" in ink on spine. Signatures: [A]4-F4 G2 (4to). Quire A is unsigned, except for printer's mark "3" on [A]3. D1 is unsigned; F3 missigned E3. Title Woodcut title vignette, headpieces, and initial. First published in 1628. Cf. STC 7749. STC (2nd ed.), 7750; Thomason, E.161[1]. The names of the printers, Bernard Alsop and Thomas Fawcett, are taken from STC. This tract originally printed by Alsop and Fawcett in 1628, probably was re-issued by them before the sitting of the Short Parliament, which sat from 13 April 1640 until dismissed by King Charles in 5 May 1640. Following that dismissal, Alsop and Fawcett printed a number of tracts in support of the rights of Parliament against the efforts of the king to increase his power without that body's backing. In Very Good Condition: lacking first (blank) leaf; "18" in ink in upper right-hand corner of title page; light foxing and soiling throughout; 4-cm. tear from fore-edge of last leaf with invisible (Japanese paper?) repair of part of tear touching text--no loss of text; a few letters rubbed off on p. 46. A very scarce pro-Parliament pre-English Civil War tract.

BELLA, S[tefano] Della [1610-1664].
[Paris?: 1640's?]. etched title & 6 etched plates. approximately 122/141 x 73/83 mm. all mounted in an album. oblong 8vo. 19th century mottled calf by R. De Coverley, all edges gilt (joints cracked, hinges strengthened). [BOUND WITH:] BELLA, S[tefano] Della. [Vues de Ports de Mer]. 8 etched plates. approximately 136/138 x 85/89 mm. [Paris?: 1640's?]. Two complete suites of maritime views by Della Bella; First States of all of the plates. Della Bella was born in Florence in 1610, and studied the art of etching under Remigio Cantagallina, who had also been the master of Callot. While at first the young artist undertook to emulate Callot, he soon developed a style of his own. "No artist has handled the point with more facility and finesse than Della Bella. His execution is admirable, and his touch spirited and picturesque. He designed his subjects with infinite taste, and his plates produce a clear and brilliant effect.". (Bryan's Dictionary Of Painters And Engravers). The present series of etchings date from Della Bella's enormously productive and successful stay in Paris, where he worked from 1640 to 1649, etching prints on a wide variety of subjects: military, landscape, theatrical, religious, architectural, &c. They demonstrate his fascination for seaports and marine views, of which he produced several sets, large and small. The second series includes three harbour views of Amsterdam, one showing Herringpacker's Tower, two of Calais, one showing the Tower of Calais, and one of of the stormy strait between Calais and Dover. These are often cited as evidence that Della Bella … [Click Below for Full Description]

BLAEU, Willem (1571-1638)
Amsterdam: Blaeu, 1640. Engraved with period outline colour. French text. Mild soiling more evident at the edges. Repaired split at base of center fold. This attractive map called the American Islands is essentially a coastal chart of the eastern seaboard from the Chesapeake to Florida, all of the Gulf of Mexico to the Orinoco River in Venezuela, and part of the Pacific coast of Central America. The map was based upon the Hessel Gerritz map of circa 1631, which was separately published and is extremely rare. Gerritz was the cartographer for the Dutch West India Company, working under Johannes de Laet, who was in charge of Dutch interests in the Americas and Africa. The new material for this map was gathered in 1628 during a voyage through the region that may have included Chesapeake Bay and certainly included all the places from the Bahamas south and southwest depicted in the map.
