Single pinpoint wormhole in lower inner margins, never affecting the text. A bit of light toning. In good to very good condition. [4 ll.]. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Describes an engagement during the war for the restoration of Portuguese independence (the Restauração) that occurred on July 24, 1642, as well as events leading up to that engagement and subsequent events near Olivença, Badajoz and Elvas on the Portuguese-Spanish frontier. 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.

Van der Veen, Jan.
Amsterdam, Everhard Cloppenburgh, 1642, First edition. Leather, 4to (21 cm) ; [24], 523, [1] pages (with errors in pagination). Title engraving and 50 copperplate engraved emblems by Salomon Savery (1594-1678), each emblem with a two-line caption in Dutch above and two-line translation into French below, and an explanatory stanza in Dutch on the facing page. Plate XIV a cancel, as usual in the first edition. Bound in half calf over speckled paper-covered boards, rebacked with recent leather in period style, retaining original boards. Trimmed a little close at top edge without loss, except for page numbers of last two leaves. Lightly toned with occasional spots. Reference: Landwehr, Emblem and Fable Books, 842; Praz, 522. Very Good ¶ Van der Veen's extraordinary emblem book, with his book of popular songs appended, was reprinted frequently into the 18th century, but the first edition offered here is its only appearance in the larger quarto format. The first impressions of the plates are crisp and luminous. Also the only edition to include French paraphrases of the couplets accompanying each emblem. Scarce and important.

[Bible, New Testament in Ancient Greek]
Paris: Imprimerie Royale, 1642. Fol., (4), 453, (3) pp. [A-Iii4]. Text in Ancient Greek (Koine). Strong contemporary mottled calf binding with minor restoration, top cover stamped in gilt with the insignia of the Earl of Coningsby, gilt lettering and decoration to backstrip. Engraved decorations throughout, including an engraved title-page by Claude Mellan. Page 291 (PaulÕs 2nd Corinthians, Chpt. 6) with stains, though text still legible. Very good. GaramondÕs Greek types from mid-sixteenth century, used at the Estienne dynasty of printers, accepted still as the most beautiful Greek types ever devised, became a precious part of the equipment of the Imprimerie Royale when Richelieu established it in 1640; and among the splendid early folios from the Imprimerie Royale was this Greek Testament of 1642, known as the Mazarin edition. This copy came from the library of Leonard and Lisa Baskin with their several book labels.& & ÔA handsome copy of the so-called Ã’Mazarin editionÓ of the Greek New Testament. The Imprimerie Royale had been established in 1640, at the behest of Cardinal Richelieu; it produced a number of distinguished editions in its first years. Cardinal Mzarin assumed control of the press (and much else besides) on RichelieuÕs death in 1642; the present edition was printed under his auspices. Textually, it is closely based on the Elzevir edition of [1624]; it adds a 30 page appendix of Ã’Variae lectiones.Ó It is an attractive edition, well-printed in a clear Greek face, and with generously proportioned margins; the engraved decorative material works very well … [Click Below for Full Description]

Montagu, Richard
London: Miles Flesher & Robert Young Folio (27.7 cm, 10.9"). [4], 307, [1 (blank)], 313?-552 pp.. 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. Contemporary mottled calf, shellacked, covers framed and panelled in blind double fillets with blind-tooled corner fleurons, simply rebacked (without labels) with complementary mottled calf; board edges with gilt roll. Original leather rubbed, shellac showing small cracks, edge gilt mostly lost; title-page with small early inked addition to author's name and with inked numeral in lower margin.

Ett av exemplaren med bladen 4O3 & 4O4 (s. 663-666) i original! Dessa drogs in och ersattes i de flesta fall av kancellanser. Johannes Baazius (1581-1649) var kyrkoherde i Jönköping. Hans kyrkohistoria är ett av de första svenska försöken till en sådan och tillika ett självständigt och, enligt Lindroth, delvis intressant verk. Innehåller mycket källpublikationer. Den är även ett inlägg i tidens strid om biskopsvärdigheten (det s. k. consistorium generale), där Baazius, som en av de få kyrkomännen, ställer sig på regeringens sida och kritiserar biskopliga maktövergrepp, vilket väl även föranlett indragningen av blad

Rambert Chanoine
Trois volumes in-folio sur cinq, comprenant au Tome I : de Berold de Saxe, premier Comte de Savoie à Amédée Septième. 214 pages avec une préface de l'auteur. Tome IV : Charles Emmanuel Premier. 190 pages. Tomes V : de Victor Amédé Premier à Charles Emmanuel Second. 139 pages. Histoire finissant en 1642 et se terminant par « Fin des mémoires de Savoie composées par le C.R. ». Cet ensemble est une copie tout début XVIIIè du manuscrit jamais publié du Chanoine Rambert de la Sainte Chapelle de Chambéry, mort en 1728. On fait référence à cet ouvrage dans « Manno » biblio tome 1, « Foras » Tome 5, pages 57 à 60, « Grillet » Tome 2, page 143, « S.S.H.A » Tome 28, pages XXXIII à XXXVII. Deux exemplaires complets existent à la bibliothèque Royale de Turin, et un exemplaire chambérien est passé dans les mains de Mr Mugnier qui le considère, quoique criticable, d'une agréable écriture. En effet on y trouve Berold de Saxe, totalement inventé afin de créer une filiation honorable à la famille de Savoie, mais aussi de multiples anecdotes forts curieuses, jamais justifiées dans leur provenance. Le Chanoine Rambert fut Evèque d'Aoste en 1727 juste avant sa mort lors de son voyage à Chambéry en 1728. Il fait partie de la famille chargé de la Baronnie de Chatillon et des Seigneurs de Chautagne. Les 3 volumes manuscrits sont reliés dans un carton d'époque avec dos devenu muet avec les marges frottés. Le tome IV a des traces d'humidité et le tome V une trace de vers.

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

HÔPITAL, François de l', comte du Hallier, later duc de Rosnay.
[Colophon] Lisbon, Na Officina de Lourenço de Anveres, 24 October 1642. 4°, recent antique sheep, spine gilt with raised bands in six compartments, crimson leather lettering-piece in second compartment from head, gilt letter, text-block edges rouged. Caption title. Six-line woodcut initial. Light browning. In good to very good condition. Old oval paper ticket with shelfmark 1729 in upper outer corner of first leaf recto, covering last letter of the caption title. (6 ll.). *** First and Only Edition in Portuguese of this rare tract. François de l'Hôpital (1573-1660), comte du Hallier and later Maréchal de France (1643) and duc de Rosnay (1651), was at this time serving as governor of Lorraine, in northeastern France. This account describes how Hallier captured Dieuze, which was incorporated into France. (As part of the Holy Roman Empire it was known as Duss.) Details are given of commanders, troops, and movements. The report mentions Viviers, which was destroyed in 1642 at the order of Richelieu.In 1635, Hallier was named a marshal of France. This was a minor action in the brutal course of the Thirty Years' War (1618-1648), which began as a religious conflict between Catholics and Protestants within the Holy Roman Empire, and evolved into a battle between the Bourbons and Habsburgs. The War significantly affected the outcome of the Portuguese struggle for independence (the Restauração), since it prevented the King of Spain from directing his full military might against Portugal.*** Arouca R233 (citing a copy in the Biblioteca Pública e Arquivo Distrital de Évora).
