He spent five years as Papal Notary at the Avignon court; and for his Ghibelline tendencies was temporarily exiled from Florence before being allowed to return in 1315.

D'Allemagne, Henry Rene.
D'Allemagne, Henry Rene. Le noble jeu de l'oie en France de 1640 a 1950. Quarante-huit tableaux et notices. La vie quotidienne a Paris de 1820 a 1824, d'apres les lithographies de Marlet et de Carle Vernet. Paris: Grund, 1950-1951. 4to. (335 x 250 mm). 237pp., cartonnage illustre en couleurs sur le premier plat. (Reliure de l"editeur.) Original edition of 700, this is no. 300. Ce magnifique ouvrage de reference sur le sujet, est illustree par 110 illustrations dans le texte et 48 gravures hors-texte dont 9 en couleurs de Jean Kerhor. 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. The game was also the basis for a game/stunt show in Spain, El gran juego de la oca (The Big Goose G … [Click Below for Full Description]

Original edition. Cioranescu 17, 51746. 12mo. Old wrappers. Leaf of title, verso blank; 1p priv 30 January 1693, acheve 4 May 1693; 1p acteurs; 160pp. text. Collation: []2, A-N6, 02. 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, Basil (1561-1629)
Eichstatt, 1640. Hand-coloured engraving. 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.

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.

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.

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]

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.

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.

PARIS, Matthew.
London: Richard Hodgkinson for Cornelius Bee & Laurence Sadler 1640 - Folio, (350x227mm), [50],1009,[125],310,[14]p. frontispiece portrait engraved by T. Cecill, the seperate part title to Vitae Duorum Offarum present and carring the imprint of Miles Flesher as printer, dated 1639, paper reapir to the final leraf (without loss) and some slightly soiling of the first (licence) and final leaf. Contemporary, or near-contemporary, calf, the joints and corner tips sometime repaired, some slight scratching of the leather surface and some wear to the edges, armorial bookplate of Victor Albert George Charles Villiers, Early of Jersey; Osterley Park. (ESTC S115363) Based on an earlier work by Roger of Wendover and also known as Flores historiarum, and probably based on an earlier St Albans chronicle, this new edition which appeared in 1640 was evidently a direct result of Matthew Parker's work. Indeed it was originally intended to be a mere reprint of Parker's edition, and its editor, Dr William Wats, who was chaplain to Prince Rupert, did not begin work on it until the text up to the annal for 1188 had been printed off. Wats's edition, though far from perfect, was a definite advance on Parker's. It was reissued twice (Paris, 1644; London, 1684), and was not superseded until Luard undertook in 1869 to re-edit the whole of the Chronica Majora for the Rolls Series. (Vaughan, Matthew Paris).

Ostküste -

Die Ostküste mit Virgina, Nord- und Süd-Carolina, Georgia und dem Norden Floridas. Dekorative Karte mit zwei Windrosen, Segelschiffen, figürlichem Meilenzeiger, zwei Wappen im Kartenbild und grosser Kartusche mit Indianern. Papier mit leichter dekorativer Bräunung. Aus Blaeus "Le Theatre du Monde, ou Novvel Atlas", Amsterdam 1640, mit französischem Rückentext. This map of Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia and northern Florida is described by William P. Cumming in "The SouthEast in Early Maps" as "the most correct map of this area yet to appear." The map has both the English and French Royal Arms marking their areas of influence. The limited extent of knowledge of the area is apparent: the source of the St. Johns River, for example, is shown to be a large lake to the north west, in the Appalachian Mountains. There are many decorative elements including an ornate scroll title cartouche, with figures of Indians, based on le Moyne’s drawings, scale-bar cartouche and sailing ship vignettes. From "Le Theatre du Monde, ou Novvel Atlas", Amsterdam 1640, with french text. Paper browned, wide margins, contemporary handcolor. Sprache: ewb 2018.

Burden, Mapping of North America , no. 242. Dekorative Karte der Karibik aus Blaeus "Le Theatre du Monde, ou Novvel Atlas", Amsterdam 1640, mit französischem Rückentext. Cartographically the map draws on the extremely rare chart by Hessel Gerritsz, c. 1631. The area of coverage is exactly the same with the exception of Blaeu's addition of the west coast of Central America. The nomenclature of the North American part is virtually identical, the only notable addition being the naming of VIRGINIA. It reflects the firsthand knowledge of Gerritsz during his voyage to South America and the West Indies undertaken in 1628."- (Burden) From Blaeu's "Le Theatre du Monde, ou Novvel Atlas", Amsterdam 1640, with french text, original contemporary handcolour. Paper browned at right margin, centerfold browned at upper end, there also some minor faults. Wide margins. Sprache: ewb 2018.

Celebre summa storica attribuita al Cluverio, ma che molti vogliono sia la trascrizione di un manoscritto di altra mano. La prima edizione risale al 1631.
