        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.

        Peristromata Turcica, sive dissertatio emblematica, praesentem Europae statum ingeniosis coloribus repraesentans. [Nürnberg, Wolfgang Endter] (ad 1 with a false colophon: Paris, Toussaint du Bray), 1641-1642.

      1641. (2) [Harsdörffer, Georg Philipp]. Germania deplorata, sive relatio, qua pragmatica momenta belli pacisque expenduntur. (3) [Milag, Martin]. Aulaea Romana, contra Peristromata Turcica expansa: sive dissertatio emblematica, concordiae Christianae omen repraesentans. (4) [Anonymous French critic of Cardinal Richelieu]. Gallia deplorata, sive relatio, de luctuoso bello, quod rex Christianissimus contra vicinos populos molitur. 4 editions published together in 1 volume. 4to. With 2 engraved title-plates plus 12 full-page engraved emblematic illustrations, all on integral leaves, each with a small plate nested in a larger plate (7 in the Peristromata with a varying plate black and the same outer plate of a Persian carpet in orange). Gold-tooled light brown calf (ca. 1820?) by Charles Murton in London. Rare first and only Latin editions (probably the first and only early editions in any language) of four closely related polemical pamphlets on European policy toward the Ottoman Empire. The publication was instigated by the prominent Nuremberg poet and jurist Georg Philipp Harsdörffer (1607-1658), who somehow got access to the French manuscripts of the pro-Richelieu "Peristromata Turcica" (Turkish carpets), and the anti-Richelieu "Gallia deplorata", translated them into Latin, edited them for publication and added what is believed to be his own anti-French Latin rebuttal of the former, "Germania deplorata". On 26 November 1641 he sent all three to the Calvinist Prince Ludwig of Anhalt-Köthen, founding president of the Fruchtbringende Gesellschaft in Weimar, who found the "Peristromata Turcica" shocking and dangerous, not only for its content but also because its remarkable and "seductive" graphic form. At a spring 1642 meeting of the society Ludwig initiated the writing and production of an emblematic rebuttal, the "Aulaea Romana" (Roman tapestries). Besides the political importance of these pamphlets as records of differing European attitudes toward the Ottoman Empire, they are remarkable graphic and typographic artefacts, early examples of colour printing and important emblemata. In 1536 Francois I had formed an alliance with the Ottoman Emperor Suleiman the Magnificent, and for a century Franco-Ottoman relations swung between extremes. Around 1626 Cardinal Richelieu began to encourage noblemen to strengthen France's economy by expanding its maritime trade in the Middle East, Near East and beyond. But with its great maritime power, the Ottoman Empire was not only a potentially valuable trading partner but also a fierce competitor and even a military threat to Europe's trade in those regions. Richelieu therefore attempted to form a Catholic union with the Holy Roman Empire and others to fight against the Ottomans. With owner's inscription of the lawyer and diplomat Georg Achatz Heher (1601-67) and bookplate of Robert Hoe (1839-1909), one of the greatest book collectors of all time. With the last quires (E-H) of the "Aulaea Romana" misbound following the last quire (G) of Gallia. A small marginal worm hole in the first work and the first leaves of the second, and an occasional small marginal chip or tear, but still in good condition. The binding with cracks in the hinges and some wear at the extremities, but otherwise good. Although these four editions were clearly designed to be published together, only about a dozen complete sets are known to survive, nearly all in Germany, Austria and Poland. Faber de Four 497-500. Praz, pp. 448-449. M. Reinhart, "Georg Philipp Harsdörffer and the emblematic pamphlets of 1641-42 ...", in: Emblemata XX (2013), pp. 313-376 & XXI (2014), pp. 277-375.

        DELL'ANELLO FISICO ovvero DEL RISTRETTO DELL'ARTE MEDICA. Traduttione,, & Ampliatione di Carlo Pona, Accademico Incognito Veneto.

      Per Bartolomeo Merlo. Ad istanza di Francesco de' Rossi Libraro, In Verona 1641 - Prima edizione. Opera dedicata al Podestà di Verona Alvise Morosini. Cm.20,5x14,2. Pg.XVI, 264. Legatura in piena pergamena rigida. Marca tipografica con elementi allegorici al frontespizio, bordato con cornicetta a doppio filo. Leggero alone che interessa solo le prime carte. Le carte (A-A4) sono presenti in riproduzione fotostatica. Minimo restauro a carta (A5). Errata collazione delle ultime quattro carte, ma testo completo. Cartigli e capilettera calcografici. Cultore dell'aristotelismo padovano, dove aveva compiuto gli studi, poi ultimati a Bologna,Francesco Pona (Verona, 1595-1655) fu scrittore assai prolifico passando con disinvoltura da testi di medicina e di anatomia a studi botanici e ad impegni letterari. Oltre al presente testo, qui in edizione originale, assai rara, in campo medico pubblicò "Il gran contagio di Verona" in riferimento all'epidemia di peste dell'anno precedente, mentre in campo letterario diede alle stampe nel 1625, fra gli altri, "La Lucerna", sul modello del romanzo ellenistico. Scrisse anche due opere dedicate alla cura dei giardini, il "Sileno" nel 1620 e "l Paradiso de' Fiori overo Lo archetipo de' Giardini" nel 1622. Fu membro di varie Accademie: dell'Accademia dei Gelati di Bologna con il nome di "Incurvato", dei Filarmonici de Verona con il nome di "Insaziabile", degli Incogniti de Venezia con il nome di "Assicurato", degli Invaghiti di Mantova con il nome di "Improntato" et dell'Accademia Olimpica di Vicenza. L'edizione si deve alle cure di Carlo Pona, anch'egli medico, probabilmente congiunto di Francesco. > Vinciana, 2004, "L'opera passa in rassegna i metodi di cura, farmachi, ricette, ecc. per ogni genere di malattie".

        La Sacra Bibbia tradotta in lingua italiana, e commentata da Giovanni Diodati, di nation lucchese. Seconda editione, migliorata ed accrescita. con l'aggiunta de' Sacri Salmi, messi in rime per lo medesimo

      Pierre Chouët, 1641. In folio, sontuosa legatura coeva in piena pelle, dorso a cinque nervi, piatti decorati a secco con angolari e decoro centrale in ottone sbalzato, tracce di fermagli, pp. (4), 837 (Antico Testamento), (1 bianca), 331 (Nuovo Testamento), 148, 68 (Testi apocrifi e Salmi). Antiporta incisa su rame da Abraham Bosse con titolo entro cornice architettonica sormontata da un libro aperto. Marca tipoografica al frontespizio. Tavola dei libri scritturali canonici in principio. Capilettera ornati su legno. Ampie note esegetiche in calce. Consuete bruniture, restauri al margine interno e superiore dell'antiporta, strappo restaurato alle pp. 107/108, ma ottima copia genuina e ben legata. Sul risguardo anteriore libero nota di possesso in retoromanzo di un certo Sebastian Marcadant datata 1837. Al verso dell'antiporta preghiera sempre in retoromanzo ma di mano più antica. SECONDA EDIZIONE INTERAMENTE RIVISTA ED AMPLIATA della Bibbia protestante del Diodati. A questa nuova edizione, che riflette il mutato spirito die tempi (dopo il massacro della Valtellina del 1620 era ormai chiaro che l'Italia non poteva più essere riformata), fu aggiunto un ampio commento, dei sommari ai capitoli e la versione in versi dei Salmi che Diodati aveva pubblicato nel 1631 (I Sacri Salmi messi in rime italiane). &ldquo,Questa seconda edizione.. è una versione dell'età matura che costituisce una vera e propria opera letteraria,.. il rispetto degli originali, evidenziato dall'accorgimento di segnalare in corsivo le proprie aggiunte, non impedisce al Diodati di usare tutta la ricchezza che la lingua italiana aveva maturato nella fioritura letteraria dei secoli precedenti, dimostrando grande autonomia e padronanza della lingua.. Le non poche varianti tra l'edizione del 1607 e quella del 1641 attestano un maggior approfondimento del testo ebraico e la conoscenza di molti sussidi grammaticali ed esegetici, oltre a una maggior cura dello stile.. L'ampliamento dell'apparato esegetico dimostra anche il cambiamento del pubblico cui si rivolgeva la sua traduzione: l'edizione del 1641 ha soprattutto un intento catechetico ed è rivolta alle famiglie della Chiesa italiana di Ginevra e a tutte le comunità riformate sparse per il mondo&rdquo, (I. Zatelli, a cura di, La Bibbia a Stampa da Gutenberg a Bodoni, 1991, Firenze, nr. 132). Il Diodati, membro di una importante famiglia calvinista ginevrina originaria di Lucca, fu professore di teologia e di lingua ebraica a Ginevra. La sua fama è soprattutto legata alla traduzione italiana delle Sacre Scritture (1607 e successive revisioni), che fu tradotta anche in francese nel 1644, condotta direttamente sulle lingue originali. Amico di John Milton e di Paolo Sarpi, compì una missione a Venezia, in quell'occasione sollecitò il distacco dalla Chiesa di Roma e l'adesione al protestantesimo. La sua importantissima versione italiana, aspramente contrastata nei secoli dai cattolici, fu largamente letta ed ammirata dai Valdesi, soprattutto quelli stanziati nelle valli del Piemonte. La traduzione del Diodati rimase in vigore nella Chiesa Valdese sino al 1924, quando fu fatta una revisione rimasta poi la versione ufficiale delle Chiese evangeliche italiane. Per l'importanza che ricoprì nel corso dei secoli e per i pregi di stile, essa viene non infondatamente accostata alla Bibbia inglese di Re Giacomo e alla Bibbia tedesca di Lutero. Darlow Moule, 5600 (&ldquo,His pure Italian style is not vitiated by French influence&rdquo,), N. Bingen, Philausone (1500 - 1660), nr. 133.

        Africa nova Tabula

      1641. Questa carta dell'Africa, realizzata da Hendrik Hondius, è una variante della mappa realizzata da Jodocus Hondius Jr. nel 1619. In questa versione, con l'excudit della casa editrice di Janssonius, in basso a destra, mancano i bordi decorativi. La descrizione geografica ricalca quella delle mappe di Blaeu e di Speed. Questo esemplare proviene da un'edizione latina; la data nel cartiglio è abrasa. Incisione in rame, fine coloritura coeva, in buone condizioni. This map of Africa, realized by Hendrik Hondius, is a reissue of Jodocus Hondius' map, without the decorative borders, but with the excudit of Janssonius, on lower right. The complete geographic description of Africa is quite common in the XVII century and recalls those by Speed and Blaeu. This example comes from a Latin edition; the date on the cartouche can't be read. Copper engraving, fine contemporary colour, in good condition. Amsterdam Amsterdam O. I.

        Sammelband zum Streit um Bremens Reichsunmittelbarkeit. Vier Schriften in 1 Band.

      - Ohne Ort u. Dr. 1641-52. 4to. Zus. über 1000 S. Leder d. Zeit mit Rückenschild u. linearer Deckel- u. Rückenvergoldung; etwas fleckig, Bezug an den Kapitalen u. Gelenken rissig bzw. brüchig. Der Streit um die Reichsunmittelbarkeit Bremens begann nicht erst mit dem Westfälischen Frieden, nahm aber nach 1648 an Heftigkeit zu. 1640 z. B. lag Bremen wieder einmal mit Oldenburg in einem alten Zollstreit, der nur mit dem Nachweis der Reichsunmittelbarkeit zu entscheiden war (und den Oldenburg später gewann). Das diesbezügliche Privileg Kaiser Heinrichs V. wurde in seiner Echtheit nämlich wiederholt angezweifelt. Bereits 1646 stand fest, daß im Frieden das Erzbistum Bremen an Schweden fallen würde; deshalb war für Bremen - vor allem aus wirtschaftlichen Gründen - die Reichsunmittelbarkeit unabdingbar. Darauf ließen sich die Schweden bei den Verhandlungen in Münster und Osnabrück aber nicht ein: sie wollten das Privileg nur für das stadtnahe Territorium, nicht aber für entferntere Gebiete gewähren. Die folgenden vier Schriften geben einen Einblick in die Auseinandersetzungen zwischen der schwedischen Krone und der Hansestadt, die sich noch bis 1666 hinzogen. - Der Sammelband enthält in Bindefolge: 1. Kurtze fundamentalische (!) Erläuterung Des von der Stadt Bremen, wieder daß der gantzen Welt kundbahres Herkommend etliche Jahr hero sich anmaßlich arrogirten ReichsStädtischen Praedicati. 1652. 8 nn. Bl. - 2. (CONRING, H.) Gründlicher Bericht, Von der LandesFürstlichen ErtzBischöfflichen Hoch- und Gerechtigkeit über die Stadt Bremen. 1652. 208 nn. Bl. - 3.

        Walonis Messalini De episcopis et presbyteris contra D[ionysium] Petavium Loiolitam dissertatio prima.

      Lugduni Batavorum: Ex officina Ioannis Maire 8vo (15.8 cm, 6.25"). 476 pp., [1], [1 (blank)] ff.. 1641 Walo Messalinus" is a pseudonym for Claude Saumaise (or Salmasius, 1588–1653), a Huguenot classicist and theologian probably best noted for his attacks on the papacy. In this treatise he argues against the Jesuit patrologist Denis Petau that bishops and presbyters were the same in the early church, and thus that presbyterian polity was more primitive. The text of this => sole edition is printed in roman with a goodly amount of Greek, while the title-page is printed in black and red and ornamented with a woodcut vignette of a man digging beneath the motto "Fac et spera." => "Do and hope." Provenance: Charles Spencer, Third Earl of Sunderland, lot 8432 in the Sunderland Library sale (1882). Vellum over paste boards. Ex-library with bookplate, a bit of pencilling, paper labels on spine and pressure-stamps, yet a copy notably clean, bright, and even crisp; perhaps a half-dozen leaves sometime exposed to a small spill(?) lightly marking lower outer corner-tips. => One "pencilling" ("Sund. 8732") notes the Sunderland provenance as does the upper "paper label on spine." All edges speckled red.

      Geneuae : Ex typographia Iacobi Stoer + Roterodami : Ex bibliopolio Arnold Leers, 1641 - 1646. Hardcover. Good. 2 volume set. Folios, 35 cm. Uniformly bound in full leather. Rebacked. Title vignettes in red and black. Biblical text in Greek and Latin. Collated: [12], 30, [42] pages, 1894 columns, [9], 372, [12] pages. + [8], 1223, [48] pages. Since the advent of the church, there were attempts to reconcile the four gospels into a chronological and ordered narrative. The 16th century saw a rise in the production in Gospel harmonies, as the burgeoning Protestant movement and its offshoots attempted to decipher the true nature of the Gospels. After Martin Luther, Martin Chemnitz and Johann Gerhard are often recognized as the greatest theologians of the Lutheran Church. This book is a valuable Lutheran interpretation of the Harmony of the first four books of the New Testament. Chemnitz published Chapters 1-51 in 1593, succeeded by Leyser in 1603-11 with Chapters 52-140. Gerhard finished the work in 1626-27 with Chapters 141-218. The substantial work provides the text of the Gospels in Greek and Latin with prolific commentary and exegesis. This is an oversized or heavy book, which requires additional postage for international delivery outside the US. Harmoniae euangelicae, a præstantiss. theol. D.M. Chemnitio primum inchoatae. "In Harmoniam historiae euangelicae de Passione, Crucifixione, morte, sepultura, Resurrectione et Ascensione Christi Saluatoris nostri, ex quatuor Euangelistis contextam: commentarius conscriptus" has half-title.

        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. .

        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.

        ACTS AND MONUMENTS OF MATTERS MOST SPECIALL AND MEMORABLE, HAPPENING IN THE CHURCH, WITH AN UNIVERSALL HISTORIE OF THE SAME. . . . WITH THE BLOODY TIMES, HORRIBLE TROUBLES, AND GREAT PERSECUTIONS AGAINST THE TRUE MARTYRS OF CHRIST . . . AS NOW LATELY PRACTISED BY ROMISH PRELATES, ESPECIALLY IN THIS REALME OF ENGLAND AND SCOTLAND

      London: Printed for the Company of Stationers, 1641. Eighth Edition n. This is a particularly well-preserved copy of the substantially expanded eighth English edition of Foxe's famous horrific account of the sufferings of Protestants for their faith, commonly called his "Book of Martyrs." A compendium of supererogatory agony and terror, the work met with such popularity that its second edition of 1570 was ordered to be chained in all cathedral churches for the use of the congregation. Kunitz observes that for more than a century "it was practically required reading in every English-speaking Puritan household, often the only book owned except the Bible. Probably no single book has caused so many neuroses as has this one." Kunitz says that Foxe (1516-87) "was a fanatical Protestant, wrote with feverish energy, was completely credulous, and reveled in horror. No detail is too small or too dreadful to be described minutely, and no invective too violent to be applied to the Roman Catholics." While some lesser-known martyrs are represented with a generic woodcut of a man being burned at the stake, illustrations of particularly notable executions are rendered in gruesome detail, like that of a pregnant female martyr whose unborn child bursts out of her womb, only to be returned to the flames to perish with his mother. "Acts and Monuments" begins with the earliest Christian martyrs and continues to the Reformation. In subsequent editions during his lifetime, Foxe continued to expand and enhance his account with new stories of Christian (i.e., Protestant) suffering, doubling the size of the work by the fourth edition. A series of abridged editions appeared after his death, but in 1641, with Parliamentary power on the ascendent in the English Civil War, a new edition appeared. This eighth edition followed the 1632 printing but was substantially expanded to three folio volumes and includes a biography of Foxe, written by his sons Samuel and Simeon. New woodcuts were used for this edition, as the previous woodblocks had worn out, and Lowndes notes that our edition has additional illustrations. Copies of one edition or another of Foxe appear from time to time in the marketplace, but inevitably the descriptions of their condition begin with a litany of defects, starting with how many leaves are missing. It is difficult to state how unlikely it is to find a copy of an early edition of this work in an appealing state; this is the best one we have ever seen.. 360 x 240 mm. (14 1/4 x 9 1/2"). Volumes II and III without initial blank, volume I with leaves in quire Dddd bound out of order, otherwise complete. Three volumes. Eighth Edition. Contemporary sprinkled calf, upper boards with late 18th or early 19th century gilt armorial device, recently rebacked to style with raised bands and spines gilt in compartments with intricate central lozenge and scrolling cornerpieces, endpapers renewed. WITH historiated woodcut borders to the three title pages, MORE THAN 150 WOODCUTS OF MARTYRS IN THE TEXT (a number of them repetitions), AND FIVE WOODCUT PLATES, including a frontispiece portrait of Foxe and folding plates of Windsor Castle and the execution of Ridley. Lacking the folding engraved plate showing the Roman persecutions of early martyrs (as often). Recto of frontispiece portrait with ink signature of D. Taylor; title pages with ink inscription of M. Deane. Wing F-2035; Lowndes I, 829. Leather worn away at corners, covers a bit crackled and discolored, overall mild soiling to the title page of volume III, one tear across a leaf with early inexpert repair, another arching closed tear into the text (no loss in either case), a handful of other short closed tears, inconsequential tape repair to the fold of one plate, minor stains here and there (often from candle wax), a few small rust or burn holes, but actually IN REMARKABLE CONDITION as a whole for a work usually found in lamentable shape--the bindings solidly restored, the margins especially ample, and the text fresh, smooth, and surprisingly clean. This is a particularly well-preserved copy of the substantially expanded eighth English edition of Foxe's famous horrific account of the sufferings of Protestants for their faith, commonly called his "Book of Martyrs." A compendium of supererogatory agony and terror, the work met with such popularity that its second edition of 1570 was ordered to be chained in all cathedral churches for the use of the congregation.

        The Workes of Benjamin Jonson. [together with] The Workes of Benjamin Jonson. The second Volume..

      London: Printed by William Stansby [and] Printed for Richard Meighen, 1641. First edition. First folio edition and first collected edition. Three folio volumes, bound in two (Volume II divided into four parts, originally issued in two volumes). (11 1/8 x 6 7/8 inches; 281 x 173 mm): [12], 1015, [1, blank]; [12], 88, 75, [1], [2], 93-170; 159, [1, blank]; 79, 70-122, 133-155, [1, blank]; [2], 163-292; 132 pp. Volume I with engraved allegorical title by William Hole (Pforzheimer state B, and according to Pforzheimer this is the rarest of the states). Volume I with the rare initial blank. Decorative woodcut head-and tail pieces and initials. In volume I, page 1013-1014 is bound out of order between page 1010 and 1011. This set is complete and collates according to Pforzheimer. Volume I- In this copy, the section title to Every Man out of His Humour (p. [73]) is the state without a woodcut border, and without Iohn Smithwicke;" with dedication leaf (G2), signed, with "By your honorer, Ben Jonson," (same as Pforzheimerr) the section title to Cynthias Revels (p. [177]) is the second state without the woodcut border and has the imprint: "LONDON, Printed by WILLIAM STANSBY. MDCXVI." The section title to Poëtaster (p. [271]) is the first state within the woodcut border and has the imprint: "Printed by W. Stansby, for M. Lownes. 1616." Volume II- Issue D, with the 1640 general title-page, the first three plays with the imprint dated 1631 (same as Pforzheimer). The end of Mortimer reads: "Hee dyed, and left it unfinished". Both volumes uniformly bound in 17th-century full mottled calf. Rebacked to style in the 19th-century. Boards ruled in blind. A bit of light wear to spines and edges. Edges speckled red. Newer endpapers. Small rust hole, not affecting text to top margin of signature A of volume I, and a minor stain to signature Oo. Page 525 of volume I with a stain and small hole, not affecting text. Volume I, leaves Ppp2 and GGGG with small rust holes, just barely affecting text. In volume II, the general title-page with minor early ink ownership notes. Leaf D3, of Horace with a small rust hole. Occasional light toning to pages. It is unusual to find these books uniformly bound in a contemporary binding, because of the long delay in publication between the two volumes. Overall a very pleasing set. "This book... is a handsome specimen of typography. It reflects great credit upon its printer, Stansby, who was an apprentice and then successor to John Windet, and himself a master printer. Such work entitles him to a front rank among the printers of the reign of James I. Jonson is said to have prepared the plays for the press, himself, and one or two matters of editing... certainly appear to show the author's hand. At the end of each play, for instance, is a statement telling when it was first acted, and by whom, whether the king's or the queen's servants. The names of the actors are also given... All of the works not included in the first were intended for a second volume, which, however, did not appear until after Jonson's death, in 1640" (Grolier, 100 English). Grolier, 100 English, 17.

An appealing copy with wide margins. * Only edition. This book was based on an unpublished speech delivered in 1610 at the last session of the long Parliament before the Civil War by Hakewill, M.P. for Bossiney in Cornwall, Bencher of Lincoln's Inn and a notable legal antiquarian. Copies of the text circulated widely in manuscript. Appreciating its value, the Long Parliament ordered it to be printed. Based on a wide range of historical sources, some from the time of the Saxon kings, it asserts the illegality of extra-parliamentary taxation. It is an important early statement of the principal that taxation without representation is illegal and tyrannical. English Short-Title Catalogue R9193.

        Haarlemmermeer, plan inpoldering - Jacob Bartelsz Veeris.

      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).

        Opera graece et latine quae extant

      Lutetiae Parisiorum: Typis Regiis Tall folio (32.7 cm, 12.9"). [28], 854, 74 (lacking 75–79 [index]) pp. (some pagination erratic; 823/24 repeated).. 1641 Works of the second-century Greek theologian Clement of Alexandria (ca. 150–215), reissued from the 1616 Patius printing and here handsomely printed by the French Royal Press. This edition was apparently also issued with the title-page in a different state, sporting the imprint as "Apud Matthaeum Guillemot, via Iacobaea, sub signo Bibliothecae." Set forth is Heinsius's edition of the text, with Greek and Latin in parallel columns, additionally offering the earlier revisions and alternate readings by Friedrich Sylburg; the title-page is printed in red and black, with an impressive sailing ship publisher's device, while the main text pages are ornamented with head- and tailpieces and decorative capitals. Provenance: Title-page with inked inscription "J.D. Michaeli," presumably Orientalist, biblical scholar, and Göttingen professor Johann David Michaelis (1717–91). Later manuscript notes as below in the hand of the early 19th-century scholar August Neander; his library sold to the Colgate (Rochester Crozer) Divinity School, properly deaccessioned. Evidence of readership: Three pages completely covered in Neander's hand with annotations in Greek and Latin, tipped in at the front; pencilled marks of emphasis, inked underlining, and inked marginal annotations in what appear to be two different early hands. Period-style quarter speckled calf and marbled paper–covered sides, spine with raised bands and gilt-stamped leather title-label, all edges red; final three index leaves (only) lacking. Trimmed closely, in some instances touching headers and often the marginalia; approximately 30 leaves with a finger's-breadth portion of upper edge chewed, affecting headers but never text; several leaves with repaired tears or reinforced margins; one leaf with flaw in outer margin touching three letters. Markings as above; occasional small areas of light staining or inkblots, one small burn hole, and two pages with dripped red wax. => A solid and very readable copy in an attractive recent binding, with provenance worthy of note.
