Binding slighty rubbed, title page slightly dusty, pale age-browning to margins, occasional small fox spot, otherwise a very good copy in an attractive binding. ESTC R12740. Leicester's Commonwealth (originally titled The Copie of a Leter wryten by a Master of Arts of Cambrige) (1584) is a scurrilous tract that circulated in Elizabethan England and which attacked Queen Elizabeth I's favourite, Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. The work functioned as Roman Catholic propaganda against the political and religious policy of Elizabeth I's regime, in particular the Puritan sympathies fostered by Leicester. In doing so it portrayed Leicester as an amoral opportunist of "almost satanic malevolence", and circulated lurid stories of his scandalous deeds and his dangerous plots. The text is presented as "a letter written by a Master of Art of Cambridge to his friend in London, concerning some talk passed of late between two worshipful and grave men about the present state and some proceedings of the Earl of Leicester and his friends in England." The title "Leicester's Commonwealth" was first used in the 1641 edition. The book highly influenced Leicester's historical reputation in the ensuing centuries (Wikipedia).

Written in 1529 by a philosopher at the top of his fame, the two books are a direct confrontation with Neoplatonism then current Nifo attack that frankly using the two concepts of love and beauty, it definitely ranks in the banner of desire. The book was originally dedicated to beautiful Giovanna d'Aragona (1502-1577), godson of King Ferdinand of Naples, who Nifo saw the ideal of human beauty, able to stir all human and therefore love desires, but beyond this ideal Nifo defines what is beautiful, for what we love, revolutionary design at the time of love and beauty were deified. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

        A Parallell betweene Robert late Earle of Essex, and George late Duke of Buckingham. Written by Sir Henry Wotton, Knight, &c.

      4to. Late 19th century full red morocco made for the Piccadilly bookseller Toovey, spine with raised bands, ornamented in gilt, marbled endpapers; pp. [2], 14, double portrait in woodcut on title; other pamphlets removed from binding at an earlier date (filled with blanks), hinges a little rubbed; one corner of title expertly restored, woodcut cropped at outer margin, otherwise a fine copy with a good provenence: 19th-century armorial engraved bookplate of C.W.H. Sotheby (d.1887) of Ecton Hall, Northants. inside front cover, later gilt-stamped red morocco bookplate of W.A. Foyle, Beeleigh Abbey, Essex, on opposite fly-leaf. First edition of this double biography and character assessment of two eminent political figures in England at the beginning of the 17th century. The first had been the major player in the Essex Rebellion, which had begun with a staging of Richard II at the Globe Theatre and ended with the Earl of Essex's beheading in the Tower. The Duke of Buckingham did not rebel against a monarch, he was the favourite (some say lover) of James I and was a member of Francis Bacon's intellectual circle, before being stabbed to death by a critic of his military leadership. The author Wotton had been, together with Francis Bacon (whose writings he published), an initial supporter of the Essex Rebellion. Sir Henry Wotton was an English politician, ambassador on various missions in Europe, writer and later Provost of Eton. He announces at the beginning 'Amongst those Historicall Imployments, whereunto I have devoted my later yeares, (for I read, that old men live more by memorie than by hope) we thoght it would be a little time not ill spent, to confer the Fortunes and the natures of these two great personages of so late knowledge, wherein I intend to doe them right with the truth thereof, and my selfe with the freedome' (p. 1). Provenance: William Alfred Westropp Foyle (1885-1963) was a successful bookseller who founded the business in 1903. At Beeleigh Abbey in Essex, purchased by him in the 1940s he created one of the largest book collections, which was sold at auction in 2000, the single most valuable collection of books ever to be sold in Britain or Europe.

The project 'that can be seen as a series, and which ensured Maire's reputation through the ages, is undoubtedly his edition of Erasmus's 'opera omnia' in 12mo. 23 different volumes appeared between 1641 and 1652. It has long been thought that Petrus Scriverius was the editor, but now there is proof that in fact Willem Henricus Vorstius did the job'. (Breugelmans p. 24). Vorstius was a very learned Remonstrant theologian and minister living in the small town of Warmond, where he died in 1652. (NNBW 10,1136) Ad 1: The precationes were first published in Basle in 1535. It is a collection of 27 prayers, to which Erasmus appended another series of 35 shorter prayers) (Provenance: An ex libris of Leo Polak on front pastedown.

        A Pack of Patentees. Opened. Shuffled. Cut. Dealt. And Played

      - Type ornament device on title & a type ornament headpiece at beginning of text. 15 pp. Small 4to, polished calf (head of spine a bit chipped), signed "F. Bedford," triple gilt fillet round sides, spine gilt, a.e.g. "London, Printed in the yeare 1641." First edition of this very rare anonymous satire in verse, which criticizes monopolies and patents placed on goods such as coals, soap, starch, leather, gold wire, wine, salt, tobacco and butter. By the reign of James I, patents had become so numerous and unfairly granted that they were considered oppressive and unjust to various classes, especially tradesmen and manufacturers. King James was forced to revoke all existing monopolies (except for "novel inventions") and declare that they were only to be used for "projects of new invention." This "statute of monopolies," enacted in 1624, became the foundation for all later developments in patent law in England and elsewhere. It was a fundamental landmark in the transition of Britain's economy from the feudal to the capitalist. However, James I's successor, Charles I continued to abuse the patents system and it was only during the English Restoration that this system of abuse was curtailed. The present work, written during Charles I's reign, bitterly describes the injustices within certain trades and industries. A fine copy preserving the deckle on all lower edges. Huth bookplate (sale Sotheby's 17 July 1917, lot 5630) and the armorial bookplate of Lord Fairfax of Cameron. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Legatura antica in pergamena con titolo manoscritto al dorso. Esemplare in eccellente stato di conservazione con solo un piccolo strappo all’angolo bianco inferiore della carta intitolata alla Bandiera. Prima edizione di quest’opera in cui l’Alfieri mise insieme il trattato della Picca con quello della Bandiera, pubblicato in precedenza (1638). Splendido e introvabile libro illustrato, considerato tra i più belli del seicento stampati in Italia e presente in sole tre biblioteche italiane. Francesco Ferdinando Alfieri ha il merito di aver divulgato, in maniera succinta ma assai efficace, sia l’uso della Picca associata alla spada sia il gioco della bandiera, attraverso tutti i movimenti che lo avevano caratterizzato fin dalle sue origini.

        The Diurnall Occurrences of Every Dayes Proceeding in Parliament

      1641. The First Published Collection of Parliamentary Proceedings [Great Britain]. [Parliament]. The Diurnall Occurrences of Every Dayes Proceeding in Parliament Since the Beginning Thereof, Being Tuesday the Twentieth of Ianuary, Which Ended the Tenth of March. Anno Dom. 1628. With the Arguments of the Members of the House Then Assembled. London: Printed by R.H. And are to be Sold by William Cooke, 1641. [ii], 77, [1] pp. Lacking frontispiece. Quarto (7-1/4" x 5-1/2"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into recent quarter vellum over patterned-paper boards, black-stamped title to spine. Light rubbing to extremities, light soiling to spine, recent owner bookplate to front pastedown, lower corner of title page, which includes text and part of a typographical border, repaired with a well-matched facsimile. Moderate toning, faint dampstaining to a few leaves, light soiling and spotting to title page, internally clean. * Only edition. Until the publication of this work, accounts of Parliamentary proceedings were produced privately and distributed as expensive copies produced by scribes. This is part of the significance of Diurnall Occurrences. It is important also because it records one of the early stages of the English Civil War. This is the defiant Parliament that issued the Petition of Right, which asserted Parliament's right to curtail Royal power, and Three Resolutions, which sparked a near-riot on the floor of the House of Commons. Charles I dissolved this Parliament in the wake of the Three Resolutions. This was another step toward civil war. OCLC locates 10 copies in North America, 1 in a law library (Harvard).

        The diurnall occurrences of every dayes proceeding in Parliament since the beginning thereof, being Tuesday the twentieth of Ianuary, which ended the tenth of March. Anno Dom. 1628. With the arguments of the members of the House then assembled.

      London: Pr. by R.H. for William Cooke 4to (18.5 cm, 7.25"). [2], 77, [1] pp.. 1641 A record of debates and speeches from 20 January 1628 through 10 March 1628, along with some communications from Charles I. => This publication and others like it marked the first time that reliable printed parliamentary news became widely and inexpensively available to the public; previously, manuscripts and unreliable illicit printings had been the only such reports obtainable. There was much to report on regarding the proceedings of the 1628 Parliament, which was called only reluctantly by the King; the time period covered here includes extended discussion of the Petition of Right, of obvious interest during the lead-up to the English Civil War. Evidence of readership: On the question of the "deplorable estate of the reformed Churches abroad," the remark that "certainly fighting will doe them much more good than fasting" has been underlined in pencil and pointed out in the margin (p. 23). Recent blue, brown, and tan marbled paper?covered boards, spine with printed paper label. Title-page with inked annotation: "in reign of Charles I"; recto with traces of partially effaced rubber-stamped numeral. Margins browned. => An important record of public interest in the conflict between the King and Parliament.

        Prodromi Catoptricorum et Dioptricorum: sive Conicorum operis ad abdita radii reflexi et refracti mysteria praevii et facem praeferentis. Libri Quatuor Priores. D.A.L.G.

      Parisiis, ex Typographia I. Dedin, 1641. - in-folio. 2ff. 308pp. Plein vélin raciné, dos lisse orné de filets (reliure de l'époque). Première Edition Complète des quatre livres (exemplaire de seconde émission avec un nouveau titre à la date de 1641). Les deux premiers livres avaient déjà été publiés en 1631. Cet ouvrage important et rare, qui fut inséré en 1644 par Mersenne dans son "Universae geometriae" sous le titre "De sectionibus conicis", contient les travaux de l'auteur sur les sections coniques considérées comme base géométrique pour l'étude de l'optique. Il contient notamment l'explication de la méthode inventée par l'auteur pour déformer les figures géométriques, méthode qui fut utilisée notamment par Newton puis, beaucoup plus tard, par Chasles qui lui donna le nom de "déformation homographique". "Mydorge's works on conic sections contain hundreds of problems published for the first time, as well as a multitude of ingenious and original methods that later geometers frequently used, usually without citing their source. ( ) A friend of Descartes and an eminent geometer, Mydorge was also well versed in optics. He possessed a lively curiosity and was open to all the new ideas of his age. Like Fermat, he belonged to that elite group of seventeenth-century scientists who pursued science as amateurs but nevertheless made contributions of the greatest importance to one or more fields of knowledge" (D.S.B.). Diverses figures géométriques gravées sur bois dans le texte. Cachet ancien sur le titre. Minuscule trace de ver à l'angle de trois feuillets en début d'ouvrage, loin du texte. La plupart des cahiers sont uniformément brunis comme c'est presque toujours le cas. Bon exemplaire toutefois, agréablement relié. D.S.B., IX, p.598.

        RELAC,AM DO ENCONTRO, QVE O MESTRE DE CAMPO Dom Nuno Mascarenhas teue cõ o inimigo em Montaluão,

      - & da entrada que fez em Ferreyra a 15. de Agosto 1641. [Colofón]: Com todas as licenças necessárias. Por Manoel da Sylva. Anno 1641. A? custa de Lourenço de Queiròs liueiro do estado de Bragança. In 4º (de 18,5x14 cm) com 7 páginas inumeradas. Encadernação cartonada do séc. xx. Exemplar com nota bibliográfica manuscrita na folha de guarda anterior, com o seguinte teor: «Curiosa e de bastante apreço. Muito rara. A sua autoria é atribuída a Ruy de Figueiredo de Alarcão. Vide Catálogo Ameal nº1932. Almodôvar, 25 de Janeiro de 1940. Soares Prieto». A Relação do encontro que o Mestre de Campo Dom Nuno Mascarenhas teve com o inimigo é o relato de alguns combates da Guerra da Restauração ocorridos no alto Alentejo (Ferreira, Crato, Gavião, etc) no qual os portugueses ganham todos os confrontos, sem feridos nem mortos, prescindindo da protecção das imagens capturadas ao inimigo que são devolvidas de seguida. Inocêncio XVIII, 175: ' Relaçam do encontro que o mestre de campo Dom Nuno Mascarenhas teue com o inimigo em Montaluão, & da entrada que fez em Ferreyra a 15 de agosto de 1641. 4.º de 7 pag. innumer. Esta relação é datada de Castelo de Vide, 18 do mesmo mês. Tem no fim a indicação de ter sido impressa por Manuel da Sylva. Anno 1641. No catálogo da biblioteca de Fernando Palha vejo indicado este folheto com a designação tipográfica: «Lisboa por Iorge Rodrigues, 1641». É decerto outra edição; facto que se dá com outras publicações, como se verá, o que prova que a copia das noticias bélicas era dada a dois editores na mesma ocasião para que fossem melhor e mais rapidamente divulgadas '. Inocêncio (VII, 189) refere outras notícias bélicas do mesmo autor: 'Ruy de Figueiredo de Alarcão, Fronteiro-mór, e Governador das armas da província de Trás-os-Montes, no tempo da guerra da Independência em 1641, etc'. Location/localizacao: 5-2-C-7
