Atherton was born 1598 in Somerset and attended Oxford. He was appointed in 1630 as Lord Bishop of Waterford and Lismore. In 1640 he was accused - with his Steward John Childe - of sodomy and the two were hanged in December of 1640.

        (Sefer Yezir = Hebrew title) id est LIBER IEZIRAH qui Abrahamo patriarchae adscribitur, una cum commentario rabi Abraham F. D. super 32 Semitis Sapientiae, a quibus liber Iezirah incipit. Translatus & notis illustratus

      Amsterdam, apud Joannem & Jodocum Janssonios, 1642.. a Joanne Stephano Rittangelio. THIRD TRANSLATION INTO LATIN 1642, with parallel Hebrew and Latin texts in 2 columns. Small 4to, approximately 200 x 140 mm, 7¾ x 5½ inches, printer's pictorial device on title page, title page printed red and black, 2 engraved plates of the cabbalistic tree, pages: (8), 208, lacking final Errata leaf, bound modern full calf, ornate blind stamped border to covers, raised bands to spine, small blind motif in compartments, gilt lettered red morocco label, new endpapers. Title page unevenly browned, showing signs of damp damage, small repair to upper corner, tiny chip to lower corner, a few old paper repairs on reverse to strengthen, lower third of next few pages lightly browned, diminishing to affect lower margin only and disappearing by page 31, small damp stain to upper margin of last few leaves, leaves throughout slightly wavy, small neat ink Hebrew inscription to title page. A good plus copy of a rare book lacking only the Errata leaf. This work on the Sepher Yetzirah (Sefer Yezir and various other spellings) or "Book of Formation", perhaps the oldest Rabbinical treatise of Kabalistic philosophy which is still extant, originates possibly from as early as the third centuiry AD. The first Latin translation was made by Guillaume Postel and published in Paris in 1552; a second translation by Johannes Pistorius was published in the In Tomas Primus of "Artis Cabalisticae" in Basle in 1587. Rittangel (1606-1652) was Professor of Hebrew at the University of Konigsberg and his version is the first to give parallel texts. He also added the "32 Paths of Wisdom" in Hebrew and Latin, followed by the commentary on the the Paths of Wisdom (also in Latin and Hebrew), and an explanation by him of it. The commentary is now believed to be by the 14th century writer Joseph ben Shalom ha-Ashkenazi. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        La Famosa Comedia de la Entrada del Marqués de los Vélez en Cathaluña, rota de las tropas castellanas y assalto de Monivich

      0 - La Famosa Comedia de la Entrada del Marqués de los Vélez en Cathaluña, rota de las tropas castellanas y assalto de Monivich, Barcelona, Emprenta de Jayme Romeu, 1642. 4º. (21,5 x 16 cm.), 2 hs. + 26 págs. Ejemplar con sus barbas originales sin cortar, pequeño injerto en el vértice inferior derecho de la portada. Encuadernación moderna en plena piel con petaca. Segunda edición muy rara en comercio de esta importante comedia en tres jornadas -Tragicomedia se denomina en el texto-, publicada apenas un año después de la primera edición. A diferencia de la versión príncipe, como ya señaló Salvá, «Es edición diversa de la anterior, y no tiene el Entremés ni la Loa». Y así es, carece de la Loa de la comedia de Moniuych que figura previa a la pieza dramática, así como el Entremés de los labradores y soldados castellanos, con un bayle al uso de Cathaluña que remata la obra. Por otra parte, la impresión de ambas ediciones es diferente: la versión 1641 debió de tener dos emisiones con variantes, algunas de las cuales se recogen en la edición de 1642, que se estampa con tipos más pequeños, lo que conlleva una distribución diversa del texto. Entre las variantes la más destacable es que se muda el FIN por un Omnia sub correctione S. M. Eccles. En la nota preliminar, A quien quisiera leer la comedia, el autor anónimo presenta "Esta comedia consorte de las Catalanas fortunas", cuyo fin no era su puesta en pública escena, "porque falta quien la represente", sino el que se puedan leer las verdades de su historia, aunque muestra ser consciente de que si su obra "llegare a Reynos estraños, que un papel suele yr por el ayre, en particular si son de la corona de España, sé que la quemarán, aunque no ay heregías, sino verdades". La Tragicomedia cuenta desde un marco dramático ficcional la derrota de las tropas castellanas capitaneadas por el V marqués de los Vélez, Pedro Fajardo de Zúñiga y Requesens (1602-1647), durante el asedio de la ciudad de Barcelona en la Batalla de Montjuic (26 de enero de 1641). Nombrado, tras el asesinato de Dalmau de Queralt, virrey de Cataluña y jefe del ejército de Felipe IV en 1640 a instancias del conde-duque de Olivares, intentó reprimir la sublevación del presidente de la Generalitat, Pau Claris i Casademunt, que había dado inicio a la Guerra del Segadors. El ejército castellano con el apoyo de tropas portuguesas e italianas, conquistaron de Tortosa a Tarragona, reprimiendo con contundencia la resistencia de los sublevados, pero la derrota en Montjuic le supuso su destitución, sucediéndole el virrey de Valencia, Federico Colonna. La comedia, por tanto, pertenece a la abundante guerra de papel que se forjó en torno a sublevación catalana y en particular este hecho histórico del que no faltaron numerosos relatos como la Breve y verdadera relación de la entrada del Marqués de los Véles en Cataluña, y la retirada de su Exército de Barcelona., con doble impresión en Barcelona en 1641 en los talleres de Mathevat y Nogués; o el libro de Jusepe Font, Catalana iusticia contra las castellanas armas (Barcelona, Iayme Matevard, 1641), entre otros.

        Lacus Lamanni lo curumque circumiacentium accuratissima descriptio

      Artist: Blaeu Willem Janszoon ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1642 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 42 x 52; - description: Map shows the lake of Geneva.; - vita of the artist: Joan Guilliemus Blaeu was the eldest son of Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638), and was probably born in Alkmaar in the province of Noord-Holland in the final years of the 16th century. He was brought up in Amsterdam, and studied law at the University of Leiden before going into partnership with his father in the 1630s. Although his father Willem had cartographic interests, having studied under the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe and having manufactured globes and instruments, his primary business was as a printer. It was under the control of Joan that the Blaeu printing press achieved lasting fame by moving towards the printing of maps and expanding to become the largest printing press in Europe in the 17th century.By the 1660s the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (or Atlas Maior as it had became known by this time) had expanded to between 9 and 12 volumes, depending on the language. With over 3,000 text pages and approximately 600 maps, it was the most expensive book money could buy in the later 17th century. The translation of the text from Latin into Dutch, English, German, French, and Spanish for several volumes created enormous work for those involved in typography and letterpress activities. It is estimated that over 80 men must have been employed full-time in the Blaeu printing house in Bloemgracht, not including engravers who worked elsewhere, with over 15 printing presses running simultaneously, and in 1667 a second press was acquired at Gravenstraat. At the same time as producing the Atlas Maior, Blaeu was also publishing town plans of Italy, maps for globes, and other volumes. At its peak the Blaeu press managed to produce over 1 million impressions from 1,000 copper plates within four years.

Title printed within woodcut architectural border, typographical head-pieces, woodcut tail-pieces. Light toning to text, minor worming to margins of the first few leaves below text. An appealing copy of an uncommon title in commerce. $5,000. * First edition. The Second Part of the Institutes, an exposition of "many ancient and other statutes" including Magna Carta, was published by order of the House of Commons after the author's death. It is a landmark work because it offered a novel interpretation of Magna Carta. Reflecting contemporary struggles between the king and Parliament, Coke presented the charter as the ancient constitution of England, one that established the fundamental rights of Englishmen and placed royal power under the laws of the land. Perhaps the most famous section is Coke's commentary on the 29th chapter, in which he traced the origins of trial by jury and the right of habeas corpus. According to the ESTC, this edition has two states: "state 1 has pages 28-29 misnumbered 38-39; state 2 has the pages numbered correctly." Yet another issue is listed in a separate record, R231698, but it is believed to be a ghost. The last copy of the first edition seen at auction was in 2005. English Short-Title Catalogue R12887.

        De la vertu des Payens

      Paris, Chez François Targa, 1642, in 4°, de 4ff. 374pp., pl. basane racinée 18e, dos lisse entièr. orné, bel exemplaire. Edition originale de cet important traité polémique, par un des piliers des figures du libertinage érudit du XVIIe siècle. La Mothe Le Vayer avance ici que le Salut ou la Rédemption peuvent s'opérer sans le secours du Christ, après avoir établi que les bonnes actions des païens sont aussi de véritables vertus. Ainsi "L'homme depuis sa chute trouve assez de force en lui-même pour opérer son salut sans le secours de Jésus-Christ" (Busson p.408). Sentant que l'ouvrage risquait de faire scandale, il rajouta in fine, alors que le livre était déjà imprimé, quelques pages (pp. 371-374) pour se justifier d'une comparaison qu'il avait établie entre Saint-Etienne et Socrate. L'ouvrage n'est pas que philosophique, car c'est aussi un livre politique « très utile pour aider contre une austérité fanatique qu'il estimait dangereuse pour la paix des consciences, les efforts de Richelieu » (Pintard). Il est divisé en deux parties : dans la première il évoque l'organisation de l'état, dans la seconde il traite en détail des philosophes de l'antiquité (Socrate, Platon, Aristote, Diogène, Zenon, Pythagore, Épicure, Pyrrhon, Confucius, Sénèque et Jullien). ¶ Cioranescu 39692 - Tchemerzine III, 967a - Pintard libertins n°845 - James Libertins érudits n°227.

        Overblyfsels van geheugchenis, der bisonderste voorvallen, in het leeven van den heere Coenraat Droste, terwyl hy gedient heeft in veld- en zee-slaagen, belegeringen en ondernemingen, als ook mede syn verdere bejegeningen aan en in verscheyde vreemde hoven en landen. Den Haag, Robertus Viejou, 1728.

Schotel, met zeer veel aantekeningen van zijn hand en los in het boek 24 p. manuscript over Droste, ook van Schotel. Lit.: NNBW VI, 454."Autobiografie op rijm van Coenraad Droste (Dordrecht 1642 - Den Haag 1734), die tot zijn vierendertigste officier was in het leger van de Republiek, dus ook in het rampjaar 1672, toen het land in oorlog was met al zijn buren. Omdat hij als staatsgezinde van de Oranjepartij die sinds dat jaar aan de macht was geen promotie meer hoefde te verwachten, nam hij in 1676 ontslag en besteedde de bijna zestig jaren die volgden aan verzen schrijven, schilderijen verzamelen en reizen. Een eerste proeve van levensbeschrijving verscheen in 1723 ('Verversing van geheuchgenis'); in deze uitgave van 1728 is het aantal verzen meer dan verdubbeld en toen hij in 1734 stierf, 92 jaar oud, lag de kopij voor een derde druk klaar, met nog eens 2600 nieuwe verzen. Die derde druk kwam pas 150 jaar later, door toedoen van de historicus R. Fruin. Ze geven ons van het leven van een aanzienlijk en vermogend man in de dagen van Willem III een aanschouwelijker beeld, dan wij elders in onze, aan gedenkschriften zo arme letterkunde te zien krijgen, zo oordeelde hij over Drostes 'Overblyfsels van geheuchgenis'. De voormalige eigenaar van het hier aangeboden exemplaar, de predikant en historicus Schotel, heeft - zoals hij op de titelpagina schrijft - uittreksels uit die 2600 verzen in de marges bijgeschreven en bovendien zelf nog een groot aantal bijzonderheden over Droste bijeengebracht die bij elkaar 24 handgeschreven bladzijden vullen."

        Historische Chronica, oder Beschreibung der fürnemsten Geschichten, so sich von Anfang der Welt, biß auff unsere Zeiten zugetragen

      Third edition; an interesting history of the world, in an imposing volume, contemporary-bound in a peculiar blindstamped skin, with devices on covers coloured by a contemporary hand. The binding seems to by in imitation of the Wittenberg binder Thomas Kruger. A remarkable binding, in a strictly untouched state, featuring a medallion on the front cover with contemporary colour representing "Caritas and the beggar", and lettered in blind re-enhanced with red with the inscription "Chronica J. L. Gottfridi M.DC.XXXXII. Matthaeus Merian Frankcfurt Ammain", thus identifying the work and printers details; the lower cover is more austere in decoration, simply showing the Brandenburg arms, also heightened with colour, this time red and black. The binding is probably attributable to a follower of the Kruger workshop (see his Melanchton/Luther-decorated binding at the BL). The Margraviate of Brandenburg, and their longest ruling house, the Hohenzollern, played a significant role in the history of Germany and Central Europe, by the 17th century it inherited the Duchy of Prussia, paving the way to the Kingdom of Prussia, which would help shape modern Europe; the relevance and influence of the Margraves was rivalled by only a few houses across Europe (having had part of the Elections for the Holy Roman Emperor, participating in the Prussian victories and expansion in the 18th century, the dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire in the 19th century, and the unification of Germany in the 19th century), this binding, commissioned for one of them, or presented as a gift by them, is a wonderful testimony to the House´s splendour. The illustration is comprised of an engraved frontispiece by Sandrart double page maps and views (namely that of the world and Gibraltar in siege) is by Merian the elder (1593 - 1650), father of Maria Sibylla, and one of the leading figures in publishing and book-illustration of the first half of the 17th century in Germany, whose career began by joining the well-established De Bry family of publishers and travellers. The Historische Chronica can take its place amongst the most famed histories of the world, having gone through several editions in the 17th and 18th century; Gottfried (1584 - 1633) was a German historian, writer, translator and publisher, this is likely his magnum opus. Although not rare in itself, it is unusual to find it in such a binding, and complete. Haebler I, 251, XVII and II, 46, IV. Shirley 345. Graesse III, 122.
