Printed by Roger Daniel for John Williams, Cambridge, 1642. [10],441pp. (with some errors and duplications of page numbers, as usual). Quarto. Modern half calf and marbled boards.

AGGESØN, SVEN - STEPHANIUS, JOH. ST. (udg.).
Henrik Kruse, Sorø 1642. 8vo. (16)+223+(1) sider. Titelblad trykt i sort og rødt. Smujkt samtidigt brunt hellæderbind med rig rygfrogyldning og udvendig guldkant på permerne. Exlibris.. Bibl. Dan. III,9. Første trykte udgave af Svend Aggesøns Danmarkskrønike, der strækker sig fra kong Skjold til ca. 1185. Originalmanuskriptet, som Stephanius byggede udgaven på, brændte som så meget andet stof til Danmarks historiske hukommelse med Universitetsbiblioteket i 1728. Svend Aggesøn eller Aggesen levede omtrent samtidig med Saxo, og hvor Saxo lidt populært sagt er Absalons mand, betoner Aggesøn kong Valdemar den Stores rolle i Danmarks genrejsning efter 1150ernes borgerkrige

Manoel da Cunha (1594-1658), Bishop of Elvas, Chaplain of D.

Maimonides' text is usually accompanied, as it is here, by the massive commentary by Gerardus Vossius (father of Isaac and Dionysius) DE THEOLOGIA GENTILI ... a book said to have been an iinfluence on Isaac Newton; his library contained an "extensively dog-eared" copy of the book (John Harrison, THE LIBRARY OF ISAAC NEWTON, Cambridge University Press, p. 258).

VEEN, Jan van der.; SALOMON SAVERY
1642. VEEN, Jan van der. Zinne-beelden, oft Adams appel verciert met seer aerdige Const-plaeten, mitsgaders Syne oude ende nieuwe ongemeene Bruydt-lofs ende Zege-zangen. [24], 523 pp. Illustrated with an engraved title and 50 etched emblems. 4to., 205 x 165 mm, bound in contemporary Dutch vellum. Amsterdam: Everhard Cloppenburgh, 1642. First Edition of the poet Jan van der Veen's renowned Dutch emblem book, the only edition to include the French diptychs, and the only one issued in the larger quarto size. The title vignette and fifty etchings accompanying van der Veen's Adams Appel are the work of the Dutch artist Salomon Savery (1594 - after 1665), nephew of the painter Roelandt Savery and one of the most productive printmakers associated with book illustration in seventeenth-century Holland. Savery's etchings principally combine landscape and genre in a series of evocative pastoral scenes aptly complementing van der Veen's ironic explications of contemporary Dutch morality. The art historical importance of Savery's etchings for the Adams Appel has been pointed out by Otto Benesch, who remarked that the delicate, painterly prints figure "among the finest specimens of early Dutch naturalism in book illustration." For its seventeenth-century audience, the Adams Appel must have had especially broad appeal; Landwehr has recorded no fewer than nine editions of the work published by 1745. Jan van der Veen (1578-1659) spent his life as a poet and chemist in Deventer and dedicated the Adams Appel to the city council there. Two additional collections of van der Veen's verses accomp … [Click Below for Full Description]

Besler, M. R
[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 lac … [Click Below for Full Description]

Raynaud, Théophile (S.J., here under the pseudonym Renatus a Valle)
Francopoli: Petrus Salvianus, 1642. (8), 224 pp. Original latin, first edition. Small 8to (165*100 mm). Contemporary full vellum, title (Hipparcus. de Relig. Negotiator:) on spine calligraphed in black. Small part of front edge of front board chipped. Interior browned, small signature on front flyleaf. Alltogether in fine condition taking into account age and rarety. This is the first and only edition in the original Latin. A French translation (Hipparque.) was published in 1645 in France (Orange?) and a new translation (Le Moine Marchand.) in 1714 in Amsterdam (see Kress 2925), reprinted in 1761. 3 copies in BNF, another one in OCLC (Un. of Chicago) the description of both with exactly matching title and collation. Hipparchus refers to one of the first period dialogs of Plato, which in 1818 has been translated in French under the title: Hypparque ou l'amour du gain. This very well summarises the content of this older book, which is a comment to a bill issued by pope Urbanus VIII. The text of this bill is included at the end of the present work (pp. 220-224), dated Romae, die 29. Augusti 1637. The bill prohibits Roman Catholic priests to negotiate. Evidently such a prohibition was necessary. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

(pièces liminaires), 542 pp., [16] ff. n. ch. d'index, avec un tabl. dépliant (degrés de parenté), vélin rigide à rabats, dos lisse (reliure de l'époque). Bon exemplaire. Première édition elzévirienne de ce traité sur les fondements de la science politique, encore très dépendant d'Aristote, et d'abord paru en 1609 à l'adresse de Francfort. Georg Schönborn ou Schönborner (1579-1637) était un juriste de formation, et il fit toute sa carrière comme chancelier des Comtes de Hohenzollern. Il fait la liaison dans son ouvrage entre la théorie politique issue du Stagirite et les acquis positifs du droit public de son époque. Réédité au moins douze fois jusqu'en 1674, son traité eut de grosses répercussions pour la réflexion politique, notamment dans l'aire germanique. Willems, Elzévir, 989.

Crescent (150 tons, 14 guns) was bought for the Navy that year. In June 1648 she was one of 11 ships carried off by Sir William Batten to join the royalists in Holland, but was almost immediately retaken. Sir Walter Erle, a strong puritan, was closely associated with the Rev. John White of Dorchester. From 1624-1627 he served as governor of White's Dorchester Company, an early venture at colonizing New England. In 1627 Earle led the resistance in the county to 'ship money', was imprisoned for a year, and won a landmark victory against the Crown for imprisoning without showing cause. He was active in the first civil war as Governor of Dorchester, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Montagu, Richard.
Miles Flesher & Robert Young, 1642. First edition: Doctrinal discussion by Richard Montagu (or Mountague), Bishop of Norwich. A controversial theologian, Montagu sought to moderate between the extremes of Catholicism and Calvinism, with his stated goal being to support the Anglican Church by standing "in the gapp against Puritanisme and Popery" (Correspondence of John Cosin, 1.21). Allibone, however, joins many of the bishop's contemporaries in feeling that "There is no doubt as to the place where Bishop Montagu desired to go and to carry with him the king and the Church of England, -- to the bosom of the Church of Rome." In the present work Montagu examines Jewish doctrine and practices before the birth of Jesus, and their implications for Christianity; in doing so he argues strongly against Casaubon, Scaliger, and other Protestant scholars, while defending the Catholic Baronius and his Annales Ecclesiastici. The dedication, written in Latin and Greek, is addressed to Jesus Christ.

Fighting between Spain and Portugal broke out periodically from 1640, when D. João IV was acclaimed king of Portugal, to 1668, when the Treaty of Lisbon was signed. During those 28 years, only five major battles were fought. Usually the hostilities took the form of border skirmishes and sacks of nearby towns, of the sort described in this newsletter.*** Arouca A82. Cruz, Tipografia portuguesa do séc.
