Jyske lov er Nordens ældste kongegivne lovbog og var gældende indtil den afløstes af Christian V's Danske Lov 1683; i hertugdømmet Slesvig vedblev den dog med at være grundlaget for den borgerlige retsforfatning helt frem til år 1900. I begyndelsen af Christian IV's regeringstid (1590) optrykte Matz Wingaard alle på den tid gældende love svarende til de 8 numre af denne bogs indhold. Den mest omfangsrige er Jyske Lov, som på dette tidspunkt havde vundet hævd på at gælde for hele Kongeriget og kongens dele af Hertugdømmerne. I Christian IV's regeringstid udkom flere hundrede enkelte forordninger og mindre love; nogle af disse blev i 1615 samlet i den såkaldte Lille Reces, og endelig i 1643 i et større værk: Store Reces. Peter Hake trykte Recessen og de andre på den tid gældende bestemmelser, herunder hele samlingen, som Wingaard havde trykt. Da behovet for lovtrykkene var stort, kopierede Salomon Sartor, Niels Michelsen og Jørgen Hantsch Wingaards tryk, så de i hele fremtoningen ligner 1590-trykene, også med det falske trykår 1590, men uden bogtrykkerangivelse. Niels Michelsen, der senere blev Norges første bogtrykker, har med stor sandsynlighed trykt småtrykkene på bestilling af netop Salomon Sartor; men han lavede ikke noget optryk af Jyske Lov, det gjorde kun Sartor og den tredie "trykforfalsker" Jørgen Hantsch. Sartors tryk er iøvrigt delvist trykt med materiel, som han overtog efter afdøde Matz Wingaard 1600. Bibl. Dan. I, 628-29. Thesaurus 168 + 427. Laur.

        The Holy State. By Thomas Fuller Bachelour Divinitie, and Prebendarie of Sarum

      Cambridge: Roger Daniel for John Williams, 1642 Book. Illus. by William Marshall. Very Good. Leather Bound. 1st Edition. [12], pp 1-122, pp 119-436, pp 436-441, [2] The first edition of Fuller's Holy State, bound as usual with The Profane State and printed in Cambridge. The seventeenth century binding is in full calf with five raised spine bands and a red morocco label stating 'Fuller's Holy State'. In an effort towards conservation, or perhaps a concession to fashion, a nineteenth century owner has covered the boards in printed paper with a wavy design on it. The binding is sound, with a little bumping to extremities and tenderness to hinges. The text block has speckled edges and internally the text is complete, with excellent impressions of the William Marshall's engraved portraits of Joan of Arc and the book's other subjects. The first blank, the engraved title and the following page bearing the Prince of Wales' arms all have a small triangle of paper loss to the lower outside page corners and worming in the opposite gutter. Interestingly the first blank is used by 'William Filsley' to record his ownership of the book in 1648 and the fact that he paid 8 shillings for it. The armorial bookplate of Sir Charles Mordaunt, Baronet, appears on the verso of the title page. The bookseller's invoice of Frank Hammond Fine Books (Birmingham) records that the book was sold from a catalogue to a clergyman in Cambridgeshire in 1954 for £7 15s. Although not his most popular work during his lifetime, Fuller's Holy State is now highly valued for the biographical account it offers of the many exemplary figures included, among them: Hildegard of Bingen, Sir Francis Drake, Bishop Ridley, Lady Jane Grey and Joan of Arc.

        De originibus Americanis. Libri quatuor.

      - Ad 1: Alden & Landis 652/111; Borba de Moraes, p. 413; JCB II, p. 418; Sabin 33014; ad 2: V.d. Linde, David Joris 242; STCN (7 copies); cf. Mennonite Encyclopedia I, pp. 360-361. The first edition of a learned essay on the origins of the American Indians. It was a reply to Grotius who had argued in 1642 that the American Indians were descendants of Norsemen, Ethiopians, and Chinese, basing his theory mainly on linguistic arguments. Hornius criticized Grotius's philological approach and placed the origins of the American peoples in Scythia, Phoenicia, Carthage and China. The work is bound with Blesdijk's famous biography of the Anabaptist leader David Joris, edited by Jacobus Revius. First published in 1559, it remains the most important source for the life and teaching of David Joris.

        Les antiquitez, histoires , et choses remarquables de la ville d'Amiens [Ensemble] Recueil de plusieurs nobles et illustres maisons vivantes & esteintes en l'estendue du ddiocese d'Amiens [.]

      Chez Sebastien Cramoisy 1642 - - Chez Sebastien Cramoisy, A PAris _1642, 2 ouvrages en un Vol. in Folio (22x35,5cm), 409pp. ; 441pp. (1), relié. - Troisième et meilleure édition, la plus complète, contenant l'édition du Recueil des illustres maisons du Diocèse d'Amiens avec sa propre page de titre à la date de 1642. Les deux ouvrages avaient paru dans des versions moins complètes, respectivement en 1621 et 1630. Le second livre porte l'emplacement après chaque nom de famille des armes qui n'ont pas été imprimées mais sont décrites dans la marge ; de rares exemplaires possèdent ces armes illustrées à la main en couleurs. Grande marque de l'imprimeur sur les 2 pages de titre. Première page de titre en rouge et noir. Faux-titre entre chaque partie du premier livre. Demi Basane début XXe marbré, pastiche d'une reliure d'époque. Dos à nerfs soulignés de filets à froid. Pièce de titre een veau rouge. Frottements coiffes, mors et coins. Le faux-titre général a été doublé et restauré en marge basse par une bande de papier ancienne. Adrian de la Morlière, chanoine de la cathédrale d'Amiens a rassemblé durant toute sa vie un nombre incroyable de matériaux sur l'histoire de sa ville. L'ouvrage procède sous forme d'articles et n'use pas de la forme classique mais sommaire de l'annale, mais les articles ont une évolution chronologiques, des romains jusqu'à l'époque contemporaine. On y distingue un catalogue des évêques d'Amiens, des Comtes et des gouverneurs ou lieutenants de la ville. Le traité sur les Maisons de Picardie renferment de précieux renseignements. Outre les éléments historiques, l'auteur a ajouté à la fin de chaque partie de nombreuses poésies de son cru. Bien que l'accent soit plus essentiellement mis sur l'histoire de la ville, on y trouve maints paragraphes sur les églises, les remparts et la description de la ville. "Quoique l"ouvrage de La Morlière soit mal écrit, il est cependant utile & nécessaire, & même assez rare" note Lenglet-Dufresnoy. Au lecteur d'aujourd'hui, l'ouvrage apparaîtra surtout désordonné dans sa première partie, mais plein d'enseignements sur la ville. 409pp. ; 441pp. (1) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        (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, 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 in the original panelled calf over wooden boards, with 2 clasps at the fore-edge, small device in the centre, originally gilt, unsympathetically but neatly rebacked in brown leather with black lettering, new endpapers. Small chip to lower corner of upper cover, the others slightly worn, a few old worm holes and stains to covers, leather has been treated to make it appear polished, 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 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.

      An important and early chart of eastern Brazil. c.1642. Amsterdam. A very good example, wide margins, contemporary colour. 500 mm x 385 mm. The map features strong detail of the coastline, with some rather fictitious places and an exaggerated eastern tip. By the first half of the 17th century, Brazilian inland was mostly unknown; this map reflects the relative ignorance regarding the geographical reality of the immense landmass. Embellished with two cartouches ?one with the Dutch coat of arms-, two compass roses, and sailing ships. Published in Blaeu?s Atlas Maior, Dutch edition.

        (Map Virginia, Chesapeake): Nova Virginiae Tabula

      Amsterdam: Blaeu, 1642. Burden 193, State 2, Dutch text verso, imprint "Ex officina Guiljelmi Blaeuw", from Nieuwe Atlas. Very good condition, early color, minimal browning, nice margins, virtually no foxing. This was the first major derivative of John Smith's 1612 map of Virginia, with the image of Powhatan on the upper left inset, and based on Blaeu's use of Hondius' original 1618 plate, but altering the imprint as noted. The image measures 14.75 x 18.75 inches (37.5 x 47.5 cm). The remnants of the first imprint "Ex Officina Judoci Hondii" are still discernible, particularly underneath the "G" of Guiljelmi and just to the left of the "B" in Blaeuw..

        Insulae divi Martini et Uliarius, vulgo L'Isle de Re et Oleron

      Amsterdam: , c 1642. Size: 480 × 580 mm. Copperplate engraving with early wash colour. Dutch text on verso. Very good condition. A very fine and most attractive mid seventeenth century map of the delightful L'Isle de Ré and the L'Isle de Oleron in the Pictou-Charentes region of north west France. North is orientated to the left. This Blaeu map is typically detailed and precise and complemented by a number of subtle, decorative embellishments; compass roses, galleons, a divider and a mileage scale, a sea monster, and a discreet title cartouche. Throughout the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, the island alternated between belonging to the English or French crowns. In 1987, a 3 km bridge was constructed between the island and the mainland, making the island an attractive tourist and holiday destination.

      Registering events in the World associated with the Church, including vast references to its progress in America and Asia. 1642. Madrid. Francisco Martinez Acosta. In 8vo (200 mm x 146 mm). 1 [blank] + 11 ff. + 348 + 40 ff. + 1 [blank]. Contemporary vellum, spine lettered in ink, nearly detached, else very good. Very good copy, some pages lightly browned; else fine. First edition. A widely comprehensive work on the history of the Catholic Church, from the very beginning towards the Age of Discovery; despite the fact that it contains abundant information on the Americas, the work doesn´t appear to be found in Sabin. It is rich in details of the progress of the Society of Jesus in both Asia and America. In fact, it seems that every event associated with the Church all over the world was intended to be registered. It also doesn´t appear to be a common book, not a copy is registered as having sold at auction. Embellished with a handsome engraved title page by Navarro.

        La logique francoyse diuisée en trois parties selon les trois actions de l'entendement.

      Contenant plusieurs belles & curieuses disputes & questions filosofiques qui enseignent a bien discourir & raisoner. Utrecht, H. Borculoy, 1642. 8:o. (15,1 blank),287 s. Samtida lätt nött pergamentbd med spår av handskriven ryggtitel och numrering. Blåstänkta snitt. Lite nära skuren, ibland snuddande de tryckta marginalkommentarerna. Bitvis med svag fuktfläck i yttre marginalen. Med lång och trevlig tillskrift från Erich Vigelius att han skänkt boken till Carl Piper 1713 och C. F. Pipers namnteckning daterad samma år. Med en lös auktionslapp med numret "472". Från Biby.. Jean Louys D'Arsy är förmodligen mest känd för sitt stora flamländsk-franska lexikon. Erik Vigelius (1657-1731) var kyrkoherde i Ängsö kyrka vid Ängsö slott, vilket familjen Piper förvärvat 1710. Exemplaret har skänkts av honom till Carl Fredric Piper (1700-70) som redan nio år gammal inskrivits vid Uppsala universitet. I den latinska tillskriften skriver Vigelius att han skänker boken som ett tecken på sin uppskattning av Piper, känd för sin imponerande läraktighet och goda moral. Fadern, Carl Piper, befann sig vid denna tid i fångenskap i Ryssland där han dog 1716. Sonen blev sedermera president i Kammarkollegiet och ledamot av Vetenskapsakademien. Exemplaret har sedan sannolikt inköpts av Ulric Celsing (1731-1805) på Ängsöauktionen 1803 där C. F. Pipers fina bibliotek skingrades. Celsing var diplomat i bl.a. Konstantinopel och hans boksamling utgjorde grunden för fideikommissbiblioteket på Biby

        An interpretation of the number 666. Wherein, not onely the manner, how this number ought to be interpreted, is clearely proved and demonstrated: but it is also shewed, yt [sic] this number is an exquisite and perfect character, truly, exactly, and essentially describing that state of goverment, to wch [sic] all other notes of Antichrist doe agree. With all knowne objections, solidly, and fully answeared, yt [sic] can be materially made against it. By Francis Potter B.D [Earls of Macclesfield copy]

      Oxford: printed by Leonard Lichfield, , 1642. First Edition. Half-Calf. Near Fine. 4to: [16],214,[2]pp, with a copper-engraved title page showing numerical manifestations of ‘666’ and their supposed connections with the Catholic Church, signed: W. Marshall sculp, full-page metal cut, woodcut diagrams in the text, numerous woodcut initials and a head- and tailpiece. Leaf X4 is a cancel; final leaf is blank. Beautifully bound in 19th century half-calf, spine gilt in six compartments, red morocco lettering piece gilt; brown medium diaper cloth-covered boards; all edges speckled red; sea-green end papers. Complete in all respects and in excellent condition internally and externally, with clean pages, clear print and ample margins throughout. Engraved title is a rich, deep impression. Binding with strong joints, square text block, only minor scuffing and fading of the boards. A superb example. Provenance: book plate from the North Library of the Earls of Macclesfield and binder's ticket (Hatton of Manchester) on front paste down. Wing P3028. ESTC Citation No. R40657. Madan, II, 1032. First Edition one of the most curious and fascinating books published during the seventeenth century, Potter’s treatise on the Number of the Beast. Clergyman, instrument-maker and a founder of the Royal Society, Potter, according to the ODNB, "was interested in computing the number of the beast, connecting 25, the ‘appropinque’ square root of 666, with various institutions in the Roman Catholic church. His ideas were elaborated in a manuscript which was read in 1637 by Joseph Mede, and commended as a wonderful discovery, the ‘happiest that ever yet came into the world.'" Pepys considered it ‘mighty ingenious’. It continued to be influential and was reprinted in Worcester as late as 1808. Aubrey’s short ‘life’ of Potter paints a vivid picture of his character and highly inventive mind.

      [Nueremberg], 1642. Folio (34.3 x 22.5 cm). Engraved title page and 33 (of 34) engraved plates. Later blind paper binding.* Very rare first edition of natural history objects and antiques in the Wunderkammer of the brothers Basil (1561-1629) and Hieronymus (1566-1632) Besler. This "proto-museum" was inherited and enriched by Basil's nephew, the Neuremberg physician and pharmacist Michael Rupert Besler (1607-1661). This 'treasury of natural things from the vegetable, animal, and mineral kingdoms' contains birds, shells (some delicately carved), corals, minerals, and typical Wunderkammer artefacts such as a unicorn horn, several 'Arcimboldo' grotesque of shells, antique coins and pretty polished marble slabs, along with such unica as the sword of the Bohemian knight Johann Zisca (c.1378-1424; leader of the Hussites). Many rare plants and birds are figured, along with ethnographic objects such as a Brazilian Indian girdle made from the nuts of the Brazilian tree Cerbera ahovai. The image of this plate was used for the border of Valentini's Museum museorum (Frankfurt 1714). Besler was a in Nuremberg, was a virtuoso scholar-collector, and also assembled an important collection of art and antiquities. These plates were reissued in 1716, and 1733. In this first edition there is no further text, other than the (sometimes extensive) plate captions. This copy is printed on blue proof paper, and before letters and numbers. Only the last plate bound in is on white paper. This is plate 13 in copies with numbering. Plate 14, with the intestines of the wolf, is lacking. This suggests that initially the plates were printed and perhaps distributed in a more random order and that this copy was bound before the work was truly finished. Some worm traces on the inner margin Cobres p. 102 n 10; Nissen ZBI, 346.

Blaeu was instrumental in driving this dominance in his lifetime, and this legacy was continued by his sons.

Philippi Mülbii, 1642. 8:o. (16),+ (223),+ (blank),+ 144, 195-366,+ (177) s. Titel tryckt i rött och svart. Sammanbunden med: BOECLERUS, Johann Heinrich. Characteres politici Velleiani. Strassburg, Joan. Philippi Mülbii, 1642. 8:o. (144) s. Titel tryckt i rött och svart. Samtida understrykningar och marginalanteckningar i bläck. Samtida pergamentband, med senare tryckt titeletikett. Ur biskop Eric Wallers bibliotek, med dess exlibris, samt med Andreas Gregorij namnteckning på titelbladet, daterad Stockholm 1651, samt Friedricus Åhrbergs på försättsbladet, daterad 1745. Schweiger s. 1127 och 1133. Båda verken i första upplagan. Bra proveniensexemplar. Första arbetet innehåller även "Thrasybulos Pacificator, sive De amnestia", liksom Boeclerus långa kommentar. Det senare, Boeclerus politiska arbete om Velleius, utkom i nya upplagor 1662 och 1672. Johann Heinrich Boeclerus (1611-72) var tysk historiker och från år 1637 professor i vältalighet i Strassburg. Som sådan introducerade han den unge Schefferus i studiet av klassikerna. Han kallades av drottning Kristina till den skytteanska professuren i Uppsala 1647 men avböjde, och rekommenderade istället Schefferus. 1649 kom han ändå till Sverige och Uppsala som professor i vältalighet och 1651 utnämndes han till rikshistoriograf. Samma år återvände han dock till Strassburg och till professorsstolen i historia. Historikerna Tacitus och Velleius Paterculus ägnade han speciellt intresse. I denna utgåva följer han Voss text från 1639, men hans kommentarer är mer politiskt-moraliska än filologiska. Eric Waller (1732-1811) var biskop i Västerås. Marginalanteckningarna i boken verkar tillhöra Andreas Gregorii, medan anteckningar på försättsbladet är av Åhrberg

        Aedes Barberinae ad Quirinalem.

      Romae, Excudebat Mascardus, 1642. Folio. Beautiful red full morocco w. richly gilt back. Boards w. gilt ornamental borders, inside which another square gilt border w. a large diamond-shaped border inside, gilt corner-ornamentations. Triple blind-stamped line-borders following the gilt ones (gift-binding). On both boards a centre-ornamentation (weapon?) has been removed (to hide provenance?), revealing beautiful, cont. but vague drawings of angels on both boards, inside the gilt border, surrounding the missing centrepiece. All edges gilt, capitals, hinges and corners professionally restored. Lacking ties. Inside of boards and endpapers w. insect-bites. A cont. owner's name has been removed from top of frontispiece (same provenance as that of the removed weapons?). Some brownspotting and overall wear. Some leaves w. small holes to margins, none affecting illustrations or text. A few of the folded plates w. tears and a few w. repairs. Engr. frontispiece/ t-p., numerous large engr. head- and tail-pieces and initials, engr. text-illustrations, 18 full-page engr. plates and 11 folded engr. plates. (6), 221, (1), (30) pp.. Very scarce first edition, only printed in very few copies, which were probably all given as gift-copies to the Barberini-family and friends, with "Donum auctoris" printed at bottom of title-page. A second enlarged edition appeared in 1647 after the death of Tetius and Pope Urban the VIII, it was printed in much larger numbers and is more common than the first, though still a rarity. "Il a étè réimpr. en 1647, sur plus grand papier; mais on préfère la première édition." (Brunet V: 765-66). This richly illustrated work is renowned for its beauty. It contains the beautiful and famous engravings of the treasures and interior of the Barberini Palace in Rome. It was printed to celebrate the building of Pope Urban VIII (Maffeo Barberini) and his nephew Cardinal Francesco Barberini's then new palace on the Quirinal at Rome. Many of the folded plates depict the famous fresco-ceiling by Pietro da Cortona in the Palazzo Barberini Salone. The illustrations are so excellent that Tetius himself described the work as a second palace serving as a stand-in for the real one and being equivalent to a visit to it. The plate with the portrait of Pope Urban VIII is drawn by Andreas Camass and executed by Jo. Frederic Greuter, other plates are by Cungius, Petrus Berettius da Cortona & Cornelius Bloemaert, and Camillus C.The book seems to be complete, as it collates as thus: Engr. frontispiece (or t-p.), t-p. w. large engr. vignette, one unnumbered leaf w. 2 engr. vignettes (probably misbound and should have been pp. 5-6 (A3) ), p.1 (A1) w. engr. vignette and engr. initial, p. 3 (A2) w. engr. vignette (no A3, as this is probably the leaf bound in as the 3rd unnumbered leaf), p.7 (A4) w. engr. vignette and engr. initial, p. 9 (B1) w. engr. vignette, p. 10 (verso of B1) w. large vignette/ illustr., full-page engr. portrait of Pope Urban VIII, p. 11 (B2) w. engr. vignette and engr. initial, p. 41 (F1) w. engr. end-vignette, p. 42 (verso of F1) w. engr. vignette/ illustr., full-page engr. plate of the Barberini Palace with garden, p. 43 (F2) w. engr. vignette and engr. initial, p 46 (verso of F3) w. engr. end-vignette, 4 large folded engr. plates of the fresco-ceiling, p. 48 (verso of F4) w. engr. end-vignette, 1 large folded engr. plate (fresco-ceiling), p. 54 (verso of G3) w. engr. end-vignette, 1 large folded engr. plate (fresco-ceiling), p. 58 (verso of H1) w. large engr. illustr., p. 59 (H2) w. engr. vignette and engr. initial, p. 67 (I2) w. engr. portrait inside Barberini-border, p. 71 (I3) w. engr. portrait inside Barberini-border, p. 73 (I4) w. engr. portrait inside Barberini-border, p. 75 (K2) w. engr. portrait inside Barberini-border, p. 82 (verso of K4) w. engr. illustr. and engr. vignette, p. 83 (L2) w. engr. vignette and engr. initial, p. 96 (verso of L4) w. engr. end-vignette/ -illustration, p. 97 (N1) w. engr. vignette and engr. initial, p. 106 (verso of O1) w. engr. illustr., 1 large folded engr. plate, p. 107 (O2) w. engr. vignette and engr. initial, p. 113 (P1) w. large engr. illustr., p. 116 and p. 117 (verso of P2 and P3) consisting of two engr. illustrations of empty frames, (pp. 141-44 w.
