        Acts and monuments of matters most special and memorable, happening in the church, with a universal historie of the same. Wherein is set forth at large, the whole race and course of the church, from the primitive age to these later times of ours, with the bloody times, horrible troubles, and great persecutions against the true martyrs of Christ, fought and wrought as well by heathen emperors, as now lately practiced by Romish prelates, especially in this realme of England and Scotland. Now again, as it was recognised, perused, and recommended to the studious reader.

      London: Printed for the Company of Stationers Large folio. 3 vols. I: Engr. frontis. port., [74] ff., 1033 [i.e. 1023], [1] p., [2] ff. of plates (one large, engr. folding). II: [19] ff., 788 [i.e., 786] pp., [1] f. (fold. plate). III: [2] ff., 1030 [i.e., 1020] pp., [7] ff., 106 [i.e., 108] pp., [48] ff., [2] ff. of plates. (Without the half-titles).. 1641 English printing of the 1640s was very much at a nadir as to quality of illustration and presentation of text on the page: Remarkably, this multi-volume, large-format edition of Foxe's "Book of Martyrs" (as it is generally known) offers very good levels of illustration, composition, and imposition of type. It is printed in double-column format on high quality paper, in mostly gothic type (i.e., "black letter") with some roman and italic. The woodcut illustrations are at once charmingly naive and arresting in both their simplicity and their ability to convey the artists' intentions, with a few of the => 142 in-text woodcuts or initials looking => quite remarkably modern. There are 37 in-text woodcuts, one very large => historiated woodcut initial showing Elizabeth splendidly enthroned, one woodcut plate, and one => huge engraved folding plate showing a grand variety of martyrdoms in vol. I; 29 in-text woodcuts and two woodcut plates (one folding) in vol. II; and 76 in-text woodcuts and two woodcut plates in vol. III. The engraved plate in vol. I is by George Glover and he has signed one of the large woodcuts as well; at least one other woodcuts is signed by another artist, John Droeshout. => This was clearly a luxury production. It was on 20 March 1563 that the first edition of Actes and Monuments appeared, and it was an immediate success. A second, corrected, edition appeared in 1570; many subsequent editions were issued; and the text is still being published in the 21st century. It is without a doubt => the best-known English work of martyrology. This edition contains => the first printing of Simeon Foxe's biography of his father, the author; it was written in 1611 but not published for thirty years. Provenance: Round ownership stamp of "Iltyd Nicholl" on the fly-leaves. Later in the collections of the Pacific School of Religion (properly released), though without its usual markings; small bookseller's label of "John Howell Importer" on rear pastedowns. Late 18th-century acid-mottled calf, Cambridge-style binding, rebacked with original gilt-extra spine reattached. Covers tooled in blind to form concentric panels, one panel with corner devices; edges of covers tooled in gilt with a roll, board-edges tooled in gilt with a different roll, and turn-ins tooled in blind with yet another roll. Marbled endpapers of a combed pattern. All edges carmine. As usual, without the half-titles; each volume with a stamped number on verso of title-page; ownership indications as above. Vol. I with title-leaf subtly reinforced at fore-edge (with a limited number of other such subtle repairs to be found scattered in the set), slim wormtracks to a few lower margins, last leaf backed, and large folding plate backed with top line of text a little faded/abraded; vol. II with a natural paper flaw or two and folding plate backed; vol. III with very faint signs of old dampstaining to some top margins; otherwise, only the most occasional spot or smear to suggest age and use. => Clean and crisp.

        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.

        America Septentrionalis

      Amsterdam: Jansson, 1641. Copper-engraved map, full period hand-colouring. Hondius' important map of North America, here with glorious full period hand colouring. "Henricus Hondius' beautifully engraved map of North America had greater influence than any other to date in perpetuating the theory of California as an island ... Cartographically, this map is a careful composition of many different sources and illustrates well the current state of knowledge" (Burden). The mapping of the East coast of America is striking given the early date of the map. Fort Orange, the primary trading post on the Hudson (North River then), later to be Albany, is located. Further south, from the Chesapeake through the Gulf the map shows the benefits of the work of de Laet and Hessel Gerritz. In the north, the greatly mis-located Hudson's Bay includes recent discoveries by Thomas James, who explored the west coast of the Bay, in search of a westward passage in 1633. Henricus Hondius was the son of the engraver and mapmaker Jodocus Hondius. Henricus continued the family's cartographical business in partnership with Jan Jansson, his brother-in-law. Mapmaking was more often than not a family enterprise in Amsterdam and in Paris in the 17th century. The firm was active under one family member or another for nearly the entire 17th century. This was the period of Dutch supremacy at sea, when, having supplanted the Portuguese in India, central Africa and northeastern Brazil, the Dutch were the prime carriers of spices, silks, furs, tobacco, sugar and slaves. It was not in the nature of things that this predominance could last very long, if only because the Netherlands is a very small country. But until the Anglo-Dutch Wars of the 1660s and 70s, the Dutch were supreme, and the making of maps was a form of nationalistic journalism. First issued in 1636, the map appeared unchanged in various editions of the Hondius/Jansson atlas throughout much of the century. This copy an example of Burden's second state, with Jansson's imprint added. "Jansson was an extremely influential publisher and this depiction of the continent indicated the best that was known, as well as the great amount that remained unknown" (Martin & Martin).

        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.

        Quadrupedum omnium bisulcornum historia.

      Gian Battista Ferroni for Marco Antonio Bernia, Bologna 1641 - A PIONEERING WORK ON HOOVED ANIMALS Folio, pp. (8), 1040, (12). Roman and Italic letter, little Greek; engraved architectural and allegorical title by Gian Battista Coriolano, with rampant lions, nude figures and putti, large historiated and decorated initials, some decorative head- and tail-pieces, numerous detailed woodcut illustrations of animals, large printer’s device on final verso; a bit yellowed, mainly marginal light foxing, old repair to lower outer corner of 851. A good copy in contemporary vellum, yapped edges; early shelf mark on small oval label at head of rear cover; library stamp of Universitetets Zoologiske Museums of Copenhagen and eighteenth-century autograph ‘F. Bollin[?]’ on front endpaper; early duplicate stamp on title. Second and slightly corrected edition of a ground-breaking investigation into hoofed (ungulate) quadrupeds, first published in 1621. Ulisse Aldrovandi (1522-1605) is regarded as the father of modern natural history due to his pivotal contribution to zoology, botany and geology. An erudite scholar of wide-ranging interests, he was the first professor of natural science at Bologna University. There, he established a renowned botanical garden and gathered a steady amount of specimens and detailed drawings of faunal and floral rarities in his private museum. Everything was later bequeathed to the City Senate. The majority of his extensive essays was published posthumously by his pupils with the support of the Bolognese Commune. This vast zoological survey is not confined to scientific information on ungulates, but, in the encyclopaedic style of the author, touches also on their occurrences in European, Egyptian and Arabic literature and figurative art, as well as their meaning in prophecies and mystic symbolism and use in medical preparation. Descriptions of deformed exemplars and mythological creatures, like unicorns and centaurs, are included too. A fine copy of Dürer’s Rhinoceros (p. 884) and one of the earliest depictions of a giraffe (p. 931) stand out amongst the many zoological illustrations. Together with De quadrupedibus solidipedibus, De quadrupedibus digitatis viviparis and De quadrupedibus digitatis oviparis, this work represents one of the earliest and broadest scientific insights into quadrupeds’ features. The Scottish scholar Thomas Dampster (1579-1625) was involved in its publication as professor of humanities at the University of Bologna. Not in BM STC 17th It. Nissen ZBI, 76; Bibliotheca Osleriana, 1770; Alden, 642/3; Graesse, I, 65. Latin [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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.

Le livre du beau était originellement dédié à Giovanna d'Aragona (1502-1577), filleul du roi Ferdinand de Naples, en qui Nifo voyait l'idéal de beauté humain, capable d'attiser tous les désirs humain et donc l'amour, mais au delà cet idéal Nifo définit ce qui est beau, par ce qu'on aime, conception révolutionnaire à l'heure où l'amour et la beauté étaient divinisés.

Containing the severall patents; proclamations, orders, whereby the Soape-makers of London, and other His Majesties subjects, were damnified, by the Gentlemen that were the patentees for soape at Westminister, with the particular proceedings concerning the same

      London, printed for Nicholas Bourne at the South Entrance of the Royall Exchange, 1641. 4to, 29 + (1)pp, without the final blank, inksplash on title, no pages numbered after p.16, late 19th century half calf with a label. A good copy. First and only edition. Amex 420. Goldsmiths 724. Kress 603. Wing S.3555. See Scott, The Constitution and Finance of English, Scottish and Irish Joint-Stock Companies to 1720> I, p.219. An interesting and amusing tract on commercial rivalry, monopolistic oppression, consumer fraud and the making of soap, with reference to the Greenland Whale Fishery Company. In 1631, hoping to exploit the soap trade as a source of revenue, Charles I granted a monopoly of soap-manufactures to a Westminster group made up of inexperienced Catholic recusants. The new patent was justified on the basis of invention which allegedly made a better, cheaper white soap without the use of whale oil, which had been the key ingredient in the patent of the dispossessed London soap makers: the latter were now ruthlessly suppressed, brought before the Star Chamber, and even jailed. In this petition the Londoners narrate the extraordinary repressive measures taken against themselves and the general public and expose the fraud of their Westminster rivals, who in fact continued to use whale oil while producing an inferior and more expensive product. 'The economies, as a matter of fact, had not become actual; and the new company, working by its old methods, would be forced, in justice to itself, to recover the Crown-royalty as well as the sums paid to the members of the late society of Soapers. Moreover, when it obtained a monopoly, it was not in human nature for the soap-boilers to abstain from obtaining pecuniary compensation for their past sufferings by surreptitiously advancing prices, in spite of proclamations to the contrary effect. Therefore it follows that the consumer was destined to pay heavily for the disturbance of the trade during the past five years: and until the abolition of monopolies of this character, the price was close upon double what it had been in 1630'. [Scott].

        CONSILIORUM DECISSIVORUM CENTURIA PRIMA.

      Caesaraugustae (Zaragoza): Ex Officina Petri Verges, - 1641 - 8h., 228f., 14h.; 30x21 cm.- Pergamino. Pérdida de éste en la parte superior del lomo y plano y margen posterior (ver foto), papel ligeramente tostado y tenue mancha de humedad en la parte superior derecha del conjunto del libro que, a pesar de esta descripción, debe describirse como un ejemplar en correcto estado en su conjunto. La obra que nos ocupa es una colección de dictámenes y decisiones de tribunales, que a semejanza de otras muchas publicadas durante este siglo en Aragón, expone casos muy dispares: unas veces se refiere al derecho privado y otras al común, unas aplica el derecho aragonés y otras únicamente el segundo. El método del autor está muy sujeto al de la jurisprudencia que utiliza, puede ser como defensa forense del propio autor, respondiendo en un todo a su pensamiento y a su manera de trabajar, y otras es consecuencia de los casos prácticos en los cuales el autor no ha intervenido como parte, pero sí como juez. Derecho Fueros Aragón S. XVII
