        A Chronicle of the kings of England, from the time of the Romans government, to the death of King James the first [...] With a continuation to the year 1660. By E. Phillips. Whereto is added in this edition, a second continuation [...]

      Folio. pp. [22], 918, [12] with additional [engraved] title signed W. Sherwin. Double column text. Some old light pen marks on bottom margin of main title. Tear at the bottom of the engraved title is neatly sealed. Pages are overall clean and crisp with an occasional small stain; some light ink marks in margin of p. 235; a couple minor marginal tears neatly sealed. Damp staining and age toning are present on the last few leaves of the index. The fore-edge of the text block contains a small area of light rubbing. Pages 382-383, 422-423, 524 are mis-numbered. Bound in modern half calf with marbled boards. 19th century spine label preserved. Baker’s “Chronicle” was first published in 1643. Editions after 1660 contain the reign of Charles I and a continuation to the year 1660 by Edward Phillips, nephew of John Milton. Phillips’s account of the Restoration principally makes use of notes by Sir Thomas Clarges. The 1730 edition contains corrections to Baker’s numerous errors. Phillips’s contributions are shortened, and a new section (a second continuation) is added which contains the reigns of Charles II, James II, William III and Queen Mary II, Queen Anne, and King George I. Sir Richard Baker (1568-1644/45) was an impoverished English knight and one time Member of Parliament. Baker spent his last years in debtor’s prison where he wrote his “Chronicle of the Kings of England.” Although frequently scorned by intellectuals of the age, Baker’s “Chronicle” achieved a lasting popularity among general readers. Part of Baker’s appeal came from his narrative style which did not linger just on affairs of state but also included many human interest stories and bizarre bits of gossip. (See M. Watson Brownley, “Sir Richard Baker’s ‘Chronicle’” in Huntington Library Quart. Vol. 52 #40, 1989). [ESTC T90186; Graesse I, p.278; Lowndes, p. 101 – “best edition”].

        Relatione della Grande Monarchia della Cina del P. Alvaro Semedo Portoghese della Compagnia di Gies?.

      Con privilegio, Romae umptibus Hermanni Scheus, 1643. In 8vo, front. inciso a piena pagina con i simboli della Compagnia e figure allegoriche, antip. incisa a p. p. con il ritratto dell'Autore, pp. (6) con la dedica all' e Principe Francesco Barberino della Santa Romana Chiesa Cardinale Vicecancellario, 309 (mancano, molto probabilmente a causa di un errore di stampa dato che non sembrano esserci fogli decurtati, le pp. dalla 197 inclusa alla 204 inclusa; la p. 307 ? numerata, per errore di stampa, 207), (14) con la Tavola delle Cose pi? Notabili, capolettera decorati, finalini e qualche testatina, testo in volgare, leg. in p. p. semirigida con tit. ms. al dorso. Rara prima edizione italiana di una delle pi? interessanti storie della Cina ancora relativa al periodo Ming (XIV - XVII sec.), scritta in lingua spagnola nel 1642 dal gesuita portoghese Semedo (il quale visse in quel regno per pi? di venti anni), e tradotta l'anno successivo in italiano (non viene riportato il nome del traduttore). Il Semedo descrive con accuratezza i costumi, i riti, il governo dei popoli che vi abitano, non mancando di descrivere minutamente i progressi della religione cristiana in quelle aree. Si trattano quindi svariati aspetti della vita cinese: delle persone, dei banchetti, del modo di vestire, di studiare, dei giochi, delle punizioni, della scienza cinese, della nobilt? e di molto altro ancora, portando a conoscenza degli europei usi e costumi della civilt? cinese. Esemplare mediocremente conservato all'esterno, con mancanza di parte della pergamena al piatto posteriore; mancanze al frontespizio ma solo ai margini bianchi di esso (la parte incisa a piena pagina c'? tutta), alcune bruniture e leggeri aloncini di umido interessano le prime pagine; peraltro buono tutto l'interno.
