        Contemporary Unsigned Copy of the Petition of the Nobility Knights Gentry Ministers & Freeholders of the County of Lancaster

      1641 - shewing that "whereas divers papers usurping the names of our county [as] petitioner[s], have been obtruded upon this honourable house", the Commons of the Long Parliament, "to the great scandal of religion, & prejudice of our country, some whereof we have found to be groundless invectives, against Episcopy, barely founded upon indiscretion & ignorance" the petitioners, "aiming chiefly at the glory of God, & salvation of our souls, humbly crave leave, to vindicate our county, from such aspersions", stating that "the office & calling of Bishops, a name we shall here rather, pray for than dispute . founded in the first Christian churches, confirmed in the blood of Martyrs, & maintained in the purest time of the gospel, we apprehend to be of greater weight than to be libelled, & scandaled, by such factious persons, as have either ignorance, or prejudice, for their best counsellors"; and "praying that personal crimes may not be imputed to religious orders, nor that errors in private governors, may be a breach in public government". But "when the person of any Bishop by his life or doctrine, hath dishonoured God . or defamed his calling, may his fault be punished with such severity, as in your justice, and wisdom, shall be thought fit". They suggest that "were the Antipetitioners throughly examined, they would be found partial prejudicate men, rash inconsiderate men, unable & unqualified men, men of thin and cheap abilities, such as know no government, or scorn all", and "ready to add new firebrands to set the whole church of God in combustion". Their "last petition" is that "superstition & popery may be banished . their liberties abridged, their patrons punished, & their power shortened, according to the laws in that case provided", praying "for your happy progress, in reforming the distempers of church and state", 1 side folio bearing watermark G DVRAND below a shield topped with a fleur-de-lys, short title on conjugate leaf with year date, no place, (Transcription of 55798, by lines) The humble petition of the Nobility Knights Gentry Ministers & Freeholders of the County of Lancaster Humbly sheweth, that whereas divers papers usurping the names of our county [as] petitioner[s], have been obtruded upon this honourable house, to the great scandal of religion, & prejudice of our country, some whereof we have found to be groundless invectives, against Episcopy, barely founded upon indiscretion & ignorance: we whose names are subscribed, aiming chiefly at the glory of God, & salvation of our souls, humbly crave leave, to vindicate our county, from such aspersions, as these inconsiderate petitioners may bring upon it. The office & calling of Bishops, a name we shall here rather, pray for than dispute, so pious in it self, so reverend in its progress, so useful in ecclesiastical government, founded in the first Christian churches, confirmed in the blood of Martyrs, & maintained in the purest time of the gospel, we apprehend to be of greater weight than to be libelled, & scandaled, by such factious persons, as have either ignorance, or prejudice, for their best counsellors; we therefore beseech you to take into your considerations this great & weighty function, praying that personal crimes may not be imputed to religious orders, nor that errors in private governors, may be a breach in public government. When the person of any Bishop by his life or doctrine, hath dishonoured God, profaned his religion, or defamed his calling, may his fault be punished with such severity, as in your justice, and wisdom, shall be thought fit, so that this sacred function may be still maintained in all pristine purity, as is already established, by the laws of the land.

        Contemporary Copies in the same hand, unsigned, - (A) of Sir Thomas Aston's 2nd Petition to the Lords in support of Episcopacy, (Sir Thomas, 1600-1646, Sheriff of Cheshire, 1634-1635, M.P. for Cheshire in the Short Parliament, from 1628 1st Baronet of Aston near Runcorn), Sir George BOOTH (1566-1652, Sheriff of Cheshire, 1621-1622, of Lancashire, 1623, from 1611 1st Baronet of Dunham Massey, Sir Richard WILBRAHAM (1579-1643, High Sheriff of Cheshire, 1615-1617, from 1621 1st Baronet of Woodhey, near Nantwich) and others]

      1641 - on behalf of the Nobility, Gentry and Inhabitants of Cheshire, (read in the Lords 2nd April 1641), with (B) the Attestation to the Lords against the production of (A), by Sir George Booth, Sir Richard Wilbraham and others, not named here, but bearing numerous Original Corrections by one of the Attestors, and with (C) a Fair Copy of (B) in the same copyist's hand as (A) and (B) but a little smaller, with transcriptions. In (A) Sir Thomas recalls that he "did lately present", (27th February 1641), a 1st petition "unto your honours . attested by the Subscription of divers persons of honour and of quality of that County which your Lordships were pleased to approve of, and to [be] committed to the consideration of the Committee for Religion", since when "some seditious person . hath caused to be printed a most invective Libel . in name of a petition from the Inhabitants of the same County, in answer . herein most Scandalously reviling the whole order of Bishops as the professed enemies of the Gospel, That they are only of Ethnical or Diabolical institution, that they have exceeded the primitive persecutors, in . shedding the Blood of God's dear Saints, that in their doctrine there's nothing taught but what is different from the word of God, or the Articles ratified by Law". In addition the libel traduces "your honours, that your Lordships have unanimously voted that the Bishops have corrupted the purity of the Gospel . with Romish errors", the libel is clearly "fictious" though "in every particular doubling the number" of subscribers to Aston's 1st petition, including "all the vulgar people . who cannot well imagine" fathering "such a Bastard" and "Blemish upon the whole County", Aston prays for warrants against "the several persons whose names are . annexed" so that "your Lordships' Judgments shall . testify to the world your Lordships' care of the Public Peace. And that the Inhabitants of the said County . be not constrained to seek their own" vindication "by protestation". Aston names three people as 'Stationers', two as 'Dispersers', Barnard Alsopp and Thomas Fawcett as 'Printers', all with their addresses in London, and Henry Walker as 'the supposed Author'. (B) The "Attestation and Certificate", addressed to the Lords by "divers knights and gentry of the County Palatine of Chester whose names are subscribed [no names present]", states that "Sir Thomas Aston Baronet hath preferred to this honourable house a Petition", (A) above, "in the behalf of the Nobility Gentry and Inhabitants of this County Palatine of Chester; And therein mentioneth a former petition . presented by him to your honours . And also he takes notice of a late printed libel in answer to his former petition, which we disclaim as never approved or seen in this County till the press made it common", but their main point is that "We (who . hold ourselves to be a considerable part of this Shire) do utterly dislike, that any one man should take so much power upon himself, without public trust and appointment to use the name of the County . (when none of us were held worthy by him to be consulted withal, or to be made acquainted with his intent)". Now, following this 2nd petition of Aston's "it is high time to express our dislike of this his voluntary act, not holding it safe to refer to any of so forward a disposition the managing of any business in the name of the County . without the approbation of those the County hath entrusted as knights for our shire". They "leave him to himself to justify his own undertakings", pouring doubt on Sir Thomas's "manner of gaining hands thereto", but referring it "wholly to the consideration of this honourable house, being confident to find much good and happiness in the resolutions" and "wisdom of this honourable Parliament". The writers see in Sir Thomas's reference to their Lordships' "care of the public peace", a further slur on their Lordships, twisting it to mean "want of care", and another on the County, which could not ha [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Afbeeldinge van zeker concept tot Bedykinge van de Haarlemmer, Leydse en andere byleggende MeerenKopergravure naar het ontwerp van Jacob Bartelsz Veeris gegraveerd door Daniel van Breen. De kaart verscheen eerst in 1641 bij Nicolaes Visscher, dit exemplaar werd ca. 1750 uitgegeven door zijn opvolger Pieter Schenk Jr. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 47,5 x 71 cm.Hoewel in de 17de eeuw op grote schaal meren in Noord-Holland werden ingepolderd, bleef het project om het steeds verder afkalvende Haarlemmermeer droog te leggen voorlopig liggen. Rivaliteit tussen Haarlem en Leiden, dat niet graag de inkomsten uit de visrechten van de enorme binnenzee wilde verliezen, maakte dat de plannen niet ten uitvoer werden gebracht. Nadat in 1836 een storm het water opjoeg tot Amsterdam en Leiden werd besloten de Haarlemmermeer toch droog te malen. Dat gebeurde uiteindelijk tussen 1848 en 1852.Prijs: ? 1.750,- (excl. lijst).

      Rome, Andrea Fei, 1641. - Folio (222 x 322 mm). (22), 396 pp. Engraved title-page by Lanfranchi, engraved portrait of the author, and 72 engraved illustrations in the text (22 full-page). Contemporary full vellum. Red mottled edges.

"John Evelyn visited Angeloni in November 1644 as well as the following year and wrote in his diary that Angeloni's collection of coins was one of the most impressive in Europe" (Strandberg). - Occasional slight browning and waterstaining.

        [DIALOGO]; DIALOGUS DE SYSTEMATE MUNDI. SYSTEMA COSMICUM: IN QUO DIALOGIS IV. DE DUOBUS MAXIMIS MUNDI SYSTEMATIBUS, PTOLEMAICO & COPERNICANO, RATIONIBUS VTRINQUE PROPOSITIS INDEFINITE DIFFERITUR.

      Lugduni: Sumptibus Ioann. Antonij Huguetan., 1641. Second Latin edition of Galileo's masterwork on the Copernican system. With the famous frontispiece illustrating the three scientists in the midst of their dialogue, engraved title-page, full-page pictorial engraving of Galileo, a profusion of engraved scientific diagrams and head and tail pieces throughout. 4to, bound in antique, near contemporary polished calf, the covers with double gilt fillet ruled borders, the spine with raised bands gilt ruled, gilt lettering in one compartment, gilt tooling at the head and tail. (*4), 377, colophon, [20 pp. index], errata pp. A very handsome contemporaneously bound copy of this highly important work in the history of science, minor edge repair to the frontis, occasional very slight evidence of staining, the binding with some very expert and sympathetic refurbishment. GALILEO'S EXPOSITION AND PROOF OF THE COPERNICAN SYSTEM, which led to his trial before the Inquisition and sentence to perpetual house arrest. The book, as is well known, was placed on the Vatican’s list of outlawed books. It was not published again legally in Italy until approximately a century after the original printing. The title was not removed from the "Index librorum prohibitorum" until 1823. In 1610 Galileo published his SIDEREUS NUNCIUS, in which he described the construction of his telescope and his observations using the new instrument. His discoveries did not prove that Copernicus's heliocentric theory was correct, but they did show that geocentric philosophy of Aristotle and the geocentric system proposed by Ptolemy were incorrect, providing strong evidence for the heliocentric theory--an implausible theory which had largely been ignored for sixty years after Copernicus's death. His new support for the Copernican system reopened the controversy, and in 1615 he was officially silenced as regards the truth of astronomy. "The DIALOGO was designed both as an appeal to the great public and as an escape from silence. In the form of an open discussion between three friends--intellectually speaking, a radical, a conservative, and an agnostic--it is a masterly polemic for the new science. It displays all the great discoveries in the heavens which the ancients had ignored; it inveighs against the sterility, wilfulness, and ignorance of those who defend their systems; it revels in the simplicity of Copernican thought and, above all, it teaches that the movement of the earth makes sense in philosophy, that is, in physics. Astronomy and the science of motion, rightly understood, says Galileo, are hand in glove. There is no need to fear that the earth's rotation will cause it to fly to pieces" (PMM). Galileo pioneered the study of motion and its mathematical analysis, a field which was taken up by Decartes and Huygens and culminated in the "massive achievements of Newton in dynamics and gravitational astronomy" (PMM).

        De igne subterraneo physica prolusio.

      Firenze, Massa & Landi, 1641. ____ Première édition de cette dissertation sur la constitution de la terre et de son feux souterrain. L'auteur traite des volcans, du mouvement de la Terre, des cavernes, des rivières souterraines, des fontaines, des fossiles, des métaux... Galilée possédait cet ouvrage et recommandait sa lecture à plusieurs de ses correspondants. Giovanni Nardi (1585-1654) était médecin à Florence. Beau titre gravé, plié dans sa marge inférieure, avec deux cachets de bibliothèque de Capucins, le faux-titre manque. Bel exemplaire. Ferguson II, 126. *-------* First edition. "During the final year of his life, Galileo recommended to his correspondents to read Giovanni Nardi's De igne subterraneo (1641), a book he regarded as deserving scrutiny and discussion. (...) Galileo was well aware that a new theory of the earth as part of a new sublunary physics was a necessary consequence of accepting the Copernican cosmology and that such theory should be based on a corpuscular conception of matter radically different from the elemental theory of Aristotle." (Luca Ciancio). This is a dissertation on the nature of the Earth and its underground fire. The author deals with volcanoes, the movement of the Earth, caves, underground rivers, fountains, fossils, metals ...Giovanni Nardi (Montepulciano, 1585-1654) graduated in medecine at Pisa and practised in Florence with great reputation. It lacks the half-title. Engraved title folded at bottom, two religious congregation stamps on it. Fine copy. In-4. Collation : (2), 152 pp. Vélin doré, dos orné, encadrements dorés sur les plats avec fleurons d'angle et un fleuron au centre. (Reliure récente dans le style de l'époque.).

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.

      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.

        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. Cockle, 743. Non in Vinciana.
