Cambridge: Pr. by R. Daniel for Thomas Buck Folio (27.7 cm, 10.9"). Add. engr. t.-p., [16], 286, [30] pp.; 1 fold. map.. 1640 Second edition, following the first of the previous year: A very popular anti-Catholic (and anti-Jewish as well) account of the crusades, citing the cruel and impious behavior of popes and participants alike as reason for the failure of the conquest of the Holy Land. Fuller, chaplain extraordinary to Charles II, was one of the earliest English historians thus to analyze the crusades as a historical event. The volume opens with an added engraved title-page and also features an oversized, folding map of the region, both signed by William Marshall.

Contemporary calf with early 20th-century reback. Engraved general title by William Marshall, woodcut illustrations and diagrams in the text, final errata leaf.

First complete edition, containing important revisions to the first book and, for the first time, the "second Booke". The Discovery (first published 1638) and the Discourse together constitute "One of the first important books of modern 'popular science,' a work written by a man who knew the technicalities of science, yet who … had the ability to explain those technicalities to the general reader" (Nicholson). This 1640 edition contains a new section added to the first book on the then-sensational idea of voyaging to the moon, with associated scientific discussions of gravity and the nature and height of the atmosphere. This discourse "established the conventions of the moon-voyage for more than a century" (Nicholson).

Epictetus, Arrian, and] Simplicius of Cilicia, Cl. Salmasii, and Johanne Elichmanno
1640. Four works bound as one (Simplicius’ Commentary on Epictetus’ Enchiridion, or compilation of practical precepts; Claude Saumaise, Commentary on Epictetus and Simplicius; parallel Greek, Latin, and Arabic texts arranged by Johan Elichman of the Tabula of Cebes (Anon.) together with the Aurea Carmina of Pythagorus. Lugduni Batavorum [Leiden]: Johannis Maire, 1640 ([xviii], 332, index; 329, indices; [xxxii], 88; 15). Quarto (20 cm.) in modern calf, titles to spine, five raised bands; new endpapers, headbands. Epictetus (c. 55- 135) was the late Stoic philosopher and teacher concerned with questions of ethics (as in, how to live one’s life), and the Enchiridion, a collection of his teachings and sayings, was collected and preserved by his student Arrian. Simplicius of Cilicia (c. 490- 560), said to be one of the last neo-Platonists, also wrote commentaries on Aristotle. Claude Saumaise (1588- 1653) was professor at Leiden and something of an academic controversialist for hire, as witness his duel with Milton over the rights of monarchs (and Charles in particular). He evidently never was at a loss for words, in any of several languages, and as another description, citing Brunet, notes much given to ‘commentaire prolixe’. An attractive copy bound in suitably plain seventeenth century fashion, a few period ms. notes in Greek. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Folio (pages 272 x 176 mm) collating: [10], 32, 39-135, 166-219, [1]; complete with engraved frontis, engraving on the title and two pages of plates just before signature B. Bound in the original trade binding, without sophistication. Minor soiling and wear to the boards, spine holding firm, but chipped and cracked at the ends. Rather substantial wear to the edges of the preliminary and final pages, internal contents are generally clean. & & The author's first book, written as a political allegory of the first third of the 17th century. This copy with a crucial "key," written in a contemporary hand on the front end paper, to the identities of the people and places encrypted in the allegory. For anyone other than a contemporary courtesan, understanding this work without the benefit of a detailed key, such as this one, would be quite a challenge.

BESLER, Basil (1561-1629)
Eichstatt 1640 - Basil Besler published "Hortus Eystettensis", the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613. He worked on the drawings for the 374 copper engravings over a period of sixteen years using the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and newly discovered plants such as tobacco and peppers. 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. Hand-coloured engraving.

Jansson, Jan
Amsterdam: , c1640. Copper engraved double page map, had colored in outline, large colored cartouche, 34.7 x 48. 3 cm (13 3/4" x 19"). Latin text on verso. Some aging and toning, verso repairs along center fold, and a few other places, tear at crease in lower portion of map, lower margin partially replaced below neat line, which is defective in one place; despite defects, an attractive map with a nice impression. Jannson (1596-1664) was a Dutch mapmaker during the "golden age" of Dutch cartography. He started out as a publisher and bookseller, but when he married the daughter of another map maker, Jodocus Hondius, he got into that business. In 1633 he and his brother-in=law (Henry Hodicus) produced the two volume edition of the Mercator Atlas. The present map shows Mexico City and points west, and the west coast of Mexico shown from present day Tuxpan to Acapulco de Juarez. A large cartouche shows a lion holding a sword on the top of the royal shield of Spain, which is flanked by a man and woman in Greek style togas. Portinaro and Knirsch p.315.

Nicols, Thomas
Small 4to, old calf with later rebacking, endpapers replaced, with folding table, [x], [10], 239 pp. Covers spotted, edges rubbed, hinges cracked, rubberstamping on endpapers and verso of chart, half of front blank lacking, scribbling on front and rear blanks, light browning to page edges; else very good. While his exact origins are not clear, Thomas Nicols may have been the son of a Dr. Nicols, and appears to have entered Jesus College in Cambridge in 1640. The first edition of this book (other editions published in 1653 and 1659) represents the first gemological work written and published by a British author. This work is divided into two sections; the first is a general treatise on the subject. The second provides descriptions of the characteristics of individual gemstones. Nicols seems to be an author who gives credit where credit is due; in that in his preface he indicates he used a lot of material from Boetius de Boot?s Gemmarum et lapidum (1st edition in 1609) and other authors. Nevertheless, this is a landmark work on the subject, which provides a scheme of classification, and presents a lot of very valuable personal experience with gems. ?A striking feature of the book, perhaps gained from personal experience, is his familiarity with the methods of enhancement of gems in their jewelry settings, also falsifications and adulterations, all of his statements regarding these areas being fresh and authoritative and suggesting a recent experience with gems and the manufacture of jewelry. Much of this information remains pertinent.?

PARKER, Henry
[London:] Printed [by E. Purslowe],, 1640. And most humbly presented to the Censure and Correction of the High Court of Parliament, Nov. 3. 1640. Small quarto (174 × 133 mm), pp. 49. Early 20th-century marbled boards, titled in gilt up spine, bookplate of Thomas Edward Watson, St Mary's Lodge, Newport. A very good copy. Listed in STC as the second printing ("policie" rather than "policy" in the title) of what "may be the first intellectually significant political pamphlet of the Long Parliament era. In this crisp and well printed quarto, Parker, a publicist and man of affairs, used issues raised during John Hampden's celebrated test case of 1637 to develop his own political views" (Michael Mendle, The English Experience: Its record in early printed books published in facsimile). From an important Sussex family, Parker (1604–1652) wrote anonymously, though he became well known under the moniker of the Observator in the pamphlet wars of the early and middle 1640s.

BLAEU WILLEM
1640. Incisione in rame, colorata a mano, di mm 410x500. Elegante carta eseguita sul modello di Magini, in fine coloritura, con bei cartigli figurati. W. Blaeu, astronomo allievo di Tycho Brahe, fondò un'officina per la costruzione di globi nel 1599; quasi immediatamente iniziò a pubblicare anche carte geografiche, giungendo nel 1630 alla creazione del primo atlante "Atlantis Appendix" e cinque anni dopo, della prima edizione in due tomi de "Atlas Novus". Dopo la sua morte, avvenuta nel 1638, si giunse nel 1662 alla pubblicazione del celebre "Atlas Maior" in 11 volumi a cura del figlio Johan. Nel 1672 un incendio distrusse l'officina segnando la fine dell'attività. Buon esemplare con qualche restauro all'estremità dei margini e della piega centrale.

Amsterdam, 1640 - Incisione in rame, coloritura originale d'epoca, 412x502. Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638) fu allievo di Tycho Brahe, e fondò ad Amsterdam nel 1599 un'officina per la produzione di strumenti astronomici e globi, che in breve tempo pubblicò anche carte geografiche e nautiche; nel 1630 fu dato alle stampe il primo atlante: Atlantis Appendix composto da 60 carte. Nel 1635 Blaeu pubblicò i primi due volumi dell'Atlas Novus, ampliato dopo la sua morte dai figli fino a giungere nel 1662 all'Atlas Major in 9-12 voll. e contenente circa 600 carte geografiche. L'attività dei Blaeu terminò nel 1672 a causa di un incendio; le lastre salvate furono vendute a De Wit, Schenk e Valck.

BARBERINO (Francesco)
(1640) Cicognara, 1985. David Freedberg, Nicolas Poussin (1594-1665), exposition au Grand Palais 1995, pp. 65-67. Ad. van Bever & Ed. Sansot-Orland, Œuvres Galantes des Conteurs Italiens (XIVe, XVe & XVIe siècles), Mercure de France, 1905. Édition originale rare de ce livre très élégant, illustré de 16 planches gravées à pleine page hors-texte, dont un titre gravé et le portrait de l'auteur. Le titre et les planches (sauf 2 d'entre eux) sont dus à divers dessinateurs et graveurs : Camas, Bloemaert, Magalotti, Greuter, Fabio della Cormia, Massimi. Dans ces illustrations apparaît l'influence de Nicolas Poussin. Après W. Vitzhum dans Arts de France (II. pp. 263-264), David Freedberg étudie la contribution de Poussin aux Documenti d'Amore : "Il s'agit de la très belle édition illustrée, de Federico Ubaldini, des poèmes d'une des plus grandes figures littéraires de l'ascendance d'Urbain VIII, Francesco da Barberino (1264-1348), originaire de la petite ville de Barberino Val d'Elsa dans la province de Sienne. Le fait que la plupart des illustrations (gravées par G.F. Greuter et Cornelis Bloemaert) étaient tirées des dessins d'un groupe de jeunes aristocrates romains a été mentionné par Baglione (1642) et n'a pas manqué d'attirer l'attention des chercheurs ; mais l'on n'a pas souligné comme il le mérite le rôle de Poussin dans l'élaboration de cette charmante oeuvre collective. Nicolo Pucci, Alessandro Magalotti, Malatesta Albani et Francesco Crescenzi contribuèrent chacun par une illustration ainsi que le précisait Baglione et comme le prouvent les gravures elles-mêmes ; mais l'o … [Click Below for Full Description]
