        Le Parfaict Ioaillier, ou Histoire des Pierreries: ou sont amplement descrites leur naissance, iuste prix, moyen de les cognoistre, & se garder des contrefaites, facultez medecinales, & proprietez curieuses ... et de nouveau enrichi de belles annotations, indices & figures, par Andre Toll.

      1644. Lyon, Huguetan, 1644. 8vo. pp. (32), 746, (36), with 2 folding tables, engraved device on title and numerous woodcut illustrations. Contemporary mottled calf (head and tail of spine slightly worn). Ward & Carozzi 254. First edition in French of Boodt's fundamental manual on mineralogy and gemmology. Boodt (ca.1550-1632), court physician to Rudolf II, 'made the first attempt at a systematic description of minerals, dividing the minerals into great and small, rare and common, hard and soft, combustible and incombustible, transparent and opaque. He usues a scale of hardness expressed in three degrees and notes the crystalline forms of some minerals (triangular, quadratic, and hexangular). ... He enumerates about 600 minerals that he knows from personal observation, and describes their properties, values, imitations, and medical applications. There are also tables of values of diamonds according to their size and short description of the polishing of precious stones' (Wlodzimierz Hubicki in DSB). The woodcuts illustrate crystals, gemstones, and a variety of cutting and polishing equipment.

Zierrahmen), S. 3-464 (recte 384: die Paginierung springt von S. 192 auf 273). Teil 1 Titelauflage der 4. Ausg., Teil 2 vierte Ausg. Angeb.: Ders: Florilegium variorum epigrammatum. Mart. Opitius ex vestustis ac recentioribus Poetis congessit & versibus Germanicis reddidit. Frankfurt, Hoffmann für Götz 1644. 8°. 46 Ss., (1) Bl. (weiß). Mit Holzschnitt - Titelvignette. Dritte rechtmäßige Ausgabe. Angeb.: Ders.: Geistliche Poemata, Von jhm selbst anjetzo zusammengelesen verbessert vnd absonderlich herauß gegeben. (Breslau), Müllers Erben 1638. 8°. 408 Ss. Mit Holzschnitt - Titelvignette. Erste Ausgabe dieser Sammlung. Pergament d. Zt. (stark gebräunt, etwas fleckig) mit handschriftl. Rückenschild (etwas beschädigt). Die Bedeutung von Martin Opitz (1597 - 1639) liegt nicht zuletzt darin, dass er mit seinen Gedichtsammlungen nachweisen will, dass die deutsche Sprache die gleichen poetischen Qualitäten hat wie andere große Kultursprachen; damit leistet er einen ganz wesentlichen Beitrag zur Emanzipation des Deutschen gegenüber dem Lateinischen; zugleich legt er wichtige Grundlagen dafür, dass das Deutsche sich auch wirklich zu einer Literatursprache entwickelt. Seine Gedichtsammlungen verstehen sich als Muster; deshalb enthalten sie verschiedene Gattungen. Ganz zeittypisch orientieren sie sich an großen Vorbildern: Opitz war von der Lehrbarkeit der Kunstformen überzeugt, die "imitatio" von Vorbildern spielt deshalb eine viel größere Rolle als ein Dichterindividuum. Das "Florilegium" ist eine Sammlung griechischer und lateinischer (auch mittelalterlicher) Epigramme, mit den geistlichen und weltlichen "Poemata" umfaßt diese Ausgabe den größten Teil Opitzscher Lyrik. Gestochenes Exlibris. Vorderer Vorsatz mit alt handschriftl., aber inkorrekt notiertem Titel und Erscheinungsjahr von Text 1, Teil 1. Hinterer Vorsatz ebenfalls mit alten handschriftlichen Eintragungen. Durchgehend mäßig gebräunt, einige Lagen stärker. Verschiedene Lagen mit Wurmfraßspuren an obere bzw. unterer Ecke (Text kaum tangierend), tls. auch am seitlichen Rand, und hier mit leichtem Text- oder Buchstabenverlust. Hin und wieder mit geringen Randschäden, gegen Ende zunehmender Wasserrand; ab und an mit Stockflecken. Insgesamt ein ordentliches Exemplar. I: Dünnhaupt 9; Faber du Faur I, 228; Goed. III, 49, 94. II: Dünnhaupt 186.I.4; Faber du Faur I, 225; Goed. III, 49, 85 c. III: Dünnhaupt 5.I; Faber du Faur I, 223; Goed. III, 49, 84 b..

Cambridge: Rogeri Daniel, 1644. [xvi], 226, 9 pp. with a two-page map. Portions of text in parallel columns. Folio (14" x 9"). Contemporary calf, blind rules to boards, rebacked in period style with raised bands and lettering piece, endpapers renewed. A few scuffs to boards, moderate rubbing to edges, front hinge cracked. Title page printed in red and black, woodcut printer device, head-pieces, tail-pieces and decorated initials. Moderate toning to text, some browning to outer edges of margins, inkspots and dampspotting to a few leaves. * Second edition, corrected, edited and expanded by Wheelocke. With side-notes, index and a preface by Sir Roger Twysden. First published in 1568, this collection of Anglo-Saxon laws presents the original Anglo-Saxon texts and Latin translations in parallel columns. This edition also includes the laws of William I in Norman and Latin, the law of Henry I in Latin and a glossary from a manuscript in the Monastery of St. Augustine. As Holdsworth observed, it is a significant work because it "restored the forgotten Anglo-Saxon laws to the students of the common law. Because they had a direct bearing upon constitutional and legal antiquities, they could be pressed into the service of those who fought the battle of the constitution in the following century... and our laws to be traced back to an antiquity sufficiently remote and obscure to justify many ingenious deductions as to their rightful relations and proper sphere in the modern state.": History of English Law IV:117.

Thomas Brightman (1562&#150;1607) was an English clergyman and biblical commentator. His exegesis of the Book of Revelation, published posthumously, proved influential. According to William M. Lamont, Brightman and Joseph Mede were the two most important &#147;revisionists&#148; of the interpretation and eschatology set down by John Foxe; among Brightman&#39;s contributions was to weaken the imperial associations tied to the Emperor Constantine I. The detailed reading, in favour of the Genevan and Scottish churches, and condemning the &#39;Laodicean&#39; (lukewarm) Church of England, helped to move on the Puritan conceptions of church reform and its urgency... As a preacher he was celebrated, though his disaffection from the church establishment was no secret. (Wikipedia). MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST.

        Les Saintes Metamorphoses, ou les Changemens miraculeux de quelques grands Saints. Tirez de leurs Vies, par J. Baudoin.

      Paris, En l'imprimerie et des nouveaux caractheres de P. Moreau, Me Escrivain Jure a Paris, et Imprimeur ordinaire du Roy.(...), 1644.. In-4, plein veau marbre de l'epoque, dos a 5 nerfs orne de compartiments dores, doubles filets d'encadrement sur les plats (qqs traces de restaurations), (16), 424 p., titre frontispice et 12 planches gravees hors-texte. Edition originale de cet ouvrage compose avec les caracteres crees par Pierre Moreau, illustre de 12 portraits attribues a l'auteur ou a Abraham Bosse, d'un curieux frontispice a la date de 1643 et de nombreux ornements typographiques. Ancien clerc des finances, Pierre Moreau dessina et grava un nouveau jeu de caracteres cursifs mobiles a l'imitation de son ecriture, dite "ecriture financiere", reprenant la tradition inauguree au XVIe siecle avec le caractere de civilite. Bien que n'ayant pas ete admis au sein de la communaute des imprimeurs de Paris, il recut des lettres de privilege pour exploiter ses nouveaux caracteres et devint imprimeur du roi en 1643. Pierre Moreau imprima 33 livres jusqu'a sa mort survenue en 1648. Ses caracteres furent, par la suite, cedes a Denis Thierry, puis a Jacques Collombat; certains sont encore conserves au Cabinet des poincons de l'Imprimerie nationale. Les livres sortis de ses presses ont toujours ete recherches pour leur originalite typographique et qualite d'impression. (Arbour, 17947.

        Liber Nizachon Rabbi Lipmanni.

      Nürnberg, Simon Halbmayer, 1644.. (Gest., ill. Vortitel), (Titel), (12), 512, (24) SS. - [Vorgebunden] II: Crinesius, Christoph. [Babel] sive Discursus de confusione linguarum, tum orientalium [...]. Nürnberg, Simon Halbmayer, 1629. (Titel), (14), 144, (4) SS. Mit Holzschnittdruckermarke am Titel, 3 ganzs. Textkupfern (Schriftproben) sowie zahlr. ornamentalen Initialen und Vignetten in Holzschnitt. - [Vorgebunden] III: Hackspan, Theodor. Disputationum theologicarum & philologicarum sylloge [...]. Nürnberg, Johann Andreas Endter & Wolfgang Endter, 1663. (Titel in rot und schwarz), (6), 616, (43) SS. Mit einigen ornamentalen Vignetten und Zierstücken in Holzschnitt. Zeitgenössischer Pergamentband mit hs. Rückentitel. 4to.. Nürnberger Sammelband zu Fragen und Problemen der hebräischen Philologie und Textexegese, verfaßt bzw. herausgegeben von bedeutenden protestantischen Orientalisten. - I: Die erste gedruckte Ausgabe des 'Sefer nizzachon', das Hauptwerk des großen Apologeten und Kabbalisten Jom-Tow ben Salomo Lipmann von Mühlhausen (fl. n. 1400). In dem vor 1410 verfaßten 'Buch des Sieges' bekämpft Lipmann "christliche Hauptlehren, vor allem die christlichen Deutungen einzelner Bibelstellen [...] Die eine genaue Kenntnis des Neuen Testaments voraussetzende Schrift erregte unter den Christen großes Aufsehen und bewirkte eine Gegenschrift des Brandenburger Bischofs Stephan Bodecker" (Jüd. Lex. III, 1119). Herausgegeben vom bedeutenden Orientalisten Theodor Hackspan (1607-59), der sich das bis dahin nur in jüdischen Kreisen als geheimes Manuskript im Umlauf befindliche Werk auf spektakuläre Weise beschaffte: "Hackspann besuchte mit etlichen Studenten einen Juden in Schnattach, mit dem er öffters von dem Nizzachon gesprochen hatte, von dem er es aber niemals erhalten konnte. Bey dem Besuch machte er den Juden so treuherzig, daß er ihm das Nizzachon wies; und indem die Studenten abgeredter massen sich inzwischen mit dem Juden in Streit und Discours einliesen, ersahe Hackspann seinen Vortheil, setzte sich mit dem Nizzachon auf den schon fertigen Wagen und lies dem Juden das Nachsehen. So bald er mit der Beute zu Hause war, zerschnitte er das Buch, und Schnell, Blendinger, Frischmuth nebst andern im Rabbinischen wohl versirten Leuten musten es in der Eile abschreiben, damit man es dem Juden, der gleich dem andern Tag nachkam, wiedergeben konte. Und durch diesen schönen Betrug kam nun dies böse Buch in der Christen Hände und auch hernach zum Druck" (Will). - Der hebr. Text (der Hauptteil des Werkes) wurde in Altdorf gedruckt, der lateinische (ebenfalls in Paginierung von rechts nach links) in Nürnberg. Im Anhang zahlr. Passagen auf Arabisch. - II: Frühes wiss. Werk der komparativen Linguistik, das das Hebräische, Aramäische, Äthiopische, Lateinische, Griechische, Französische usw. in Bezug auf Grammatik, Wort- und Lautschatz detailliert vergleicht. Der Verfasser, Christoph Crinesius (1584-1629), ein in Böhmen gebürtiger Orientalist und "in der hebräischen, chaldäischen und syrischen Sprache wohl erfahren gewest" (Jöcher), war nach Studium und Lehrtätigkeit in Wittenberg Prediger zu Gschwendt geworden. Nach der Ausweisung der Protestanten aus Österreich wurde er Theologieprofessor in Altdorf; das vorliegende Werk erschien erstmals zweiteilig 1610 in Wittenberg. - Zahlr. Stellen in griech. und hebr. Type. - III: Sammlung von theologischen und philologischen Disputationen Hackspans, der als "neben Sal. Glaß bedeutendster Hebraist seiner Zeit" gilt. "Auch die Rabbinen hatte er eingehend studiert und die aus ihnen gewonnenen Kenntnisse für die theologische Wissenschaft verwerthet. Außerdem war er im Arabischen und Syrischen bewandert" (ADB X, 299).

      Edinburgh (?), No date. (?). Hardcover (Half Leather) . Good Condition. This copy was rebound early in its life & is now in 1/2 leather, poor condition, covers detached, quite worn. Title page and preliminary section, &#39;to the reader&#39; & Preface are missing about 12 pages. Evidence of considerable handling with edge wear and smudges, some close trimmed pages. On the front fly leaf is an inked inscription that this is the Edinburgh printing of 1644, which may be correct. Included is the "Appellation" & "Letter" to Queen Mary. An inked note on the fly leaf says this copy was given by Mrs. Laing, widow of Malcolm Laing, to &#39;J. B." in 1853. Since the inked name, Margaret Laing, 1819, is at the top of the 1st page of the Preface, this would seem to be accurate.

        Matthaei Paris Monachi Albanenfis Angli Historia Maior

      Paris - Apud Viduam G Villielmi Pele, 1644 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce edition of William Watts&#39;s revised edition of the life and historical works of Matthaeus Parisiensis. Matthew Paris is commonly regarded as England&#39;s greatest medieval historian. He became a monk of St. Albans in 1217, and succeeded Roger Wendover as historiographer of St. Albans in 1236. He drew his information from many documentary sources including papal bulls and royal letters and from conversation with eye-witnesses of the events narrated. His style is graphic; his view is broad; and his opinions are expressed with fervour. Based on an earlier work by Roger of Wendover and also known as Flores historiarum, this is the new edition which first appeared in 1640. It was originally intended to be a mere reprint of Parker&#39;s edition,however its editor, Dr William Watts, who was chaplain to Prince Rupert, was regarded as a definite advance on Parker&#39;s. It was reissued twice, of which this is the first. Features decorative boarders, capitals and head and tail pieces. Condition: Bound in decorative calf binding. Externally, a trifle rubbed with worn extremities. Both boardsare held by the cords only. Internally, generally firmly bound although endpaper is detached yet present. Frontispiece absent. Marginal tide marks effecting page 15 to page 52. Occasional spot. Slight worming to page 189 through to the back board. Armorial bookplate to front pastedown. Copperplate ink numbering to half title. Early copperplate ink signature to endpaper dated 1690. Library stamp to half title and title page. Overall: GOOD ONLY..

Spine leather has 6 raised bands, with 7 compartments. Armorial book plate of Baron Maule on verso. Seminary stamps. Internally very good, with clean, unmarked pages. <br><br>&#39;Matthew Paris (d. 1259?) is commonly regarded as England&#39;s greatest medieval historian. The &#39;Historia Anglorum&#39;, begun in 1250, is an abridgement, concentrating on English history, of the &#39;Chronica Majora&#39;, but it also includes some additional material for the period A.D. 1067-1253. Matthew Paris became a monk of St. Albans in 1217, and succeeded Roger Wendover as historiographer of that abbey in 1236. He drew his information from many documentary sources including papal bulls and royal letters and from conversations with eye-witnesses of the events narrated. (...) His style is graphic; his view is broad; and his opinions are expressed with fervour. He condems what he regarded as abuses of the court and church; he rebukes pope, king, nobles, and clergy, when he deems them worthy of blame. Matthew was a man of many interests and attainments&#39;.

The importance of this Commentary on Galatians for the history of Protestantism is very great.

      30 double-page engraved plates, including the title, each on a stub. 8vo, cont. speckled calf, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: A. Bosse, 1644. First edition of this very appealing and handsome series of engravings by Abraham Bosse after designs by the Italian artist and draughtsman Paolo Farinati (1524-1606). Farinati&#39;s chiaroscuro drawings were often used as "modelli." The plates depict small cupids and angels (22 plates) and eight plates of masks. Paolo Farinati was a highly productive painter and draughtsman from Verona, whose paintings are preserved in many churches. "Farinati&#39;s drawings are held in high esteem and , according to Mariette...he was a gifted draughtsman whose compositions show the influence of Paolo Veronese, though he fails to match Veronese&#39;s expressiveness of light and refinement."-Benezit, Vol. 5, p. 474. Appended at the end are four additional plates from Bosse&#39;s Différentes manères de Dessiner et Peindre (1667) and the suite of four double-page engravings for his Les Quatre Éléments (1630?). These four are entitled "Lefeu," LAir," "Leau," and "La Terre." A very fine copy in fresh condition from the Macclesfield library. The engravings are richly inked. Early engraved bookplate with legend at foot: "This Book is to be sold by J. Groenewegen & A. vander Hoeck in the Strand." They were Dutch emigré booksellers who issued catalogues in London ca. 1723-24. .

        Some Fruits of Solitude, in Reflections and Maxims Relating to the Conduct of Human Life.

William Penn (1644-1718) was born in London, and in 1681 would make history by founding the colony of Pennsylvania. He started this enterprise with good intentions and considerable resources, and even managed to cultivate good relations with Native Americana in the area. However, by 1685 the colony became a financial failure for Penn, and his vision for an "ideal society" ended. Penn, a Quaker, had his share of squabbles with other religious leaders, but he was fortunate enough to have the means to publish his opinions. The present title was a popular work, and published in several editions. It contains a lot of useful information that presents Penn's views on life. He tells us that diet is important to a balanced life and recommends "eat therefore to live, and do not live to eat." He also tells us that "strong liquors" are not a bad thing if used in moderation. He also felt having good friends was very important, and advises a person to choose them like a wife, "till death separate you." ANB.

With side-notes, index and a preface by Sir Roger Twysden.

This edition also includes the laws of William I in Norman and Latin, the law of Henry I in Latin and a glossary from a manuscript in the Monastery of St. Augustine. As Holdsworth observed, it is a significant work because it "restored the forgotten Anglo-Saxon laws to the students of the common law. Because they had a direct bearing upon constitutional and legal antiquities, they could be pressed into the service of those who fought the battle of the constitution in the following century... and our laws to be traced back to an antiquity sufficiently remote and obscure to justify many ingenious deductions as to their rightful relations and proper sphere in the modern state.": History of English Law IV:117.

A brilliant mathematician, Torricelli was Galileo's assistant and companion during the last two years of the elder scientist's life, and he succeeded Galileo in the post of grand ducal mathematician. In his Opera Geometrica, published at the expense of Grand-Duke Ferdinand II, Torricelli elucidated and diffused the difficult geometry of Cavalieri (see lot 359), thereby gaining himself widespread recognition throughout Europe. The first part, compiled around 1641, 'studies figures arising through rotation of a regular polygon inscribed in or circumscribed about a circle around one of its axes of symmetry... Torricelli... classifies such rotation solids into six kinds, studies their properties, and presents some new propositions and new metrical relations for the round bodies of elementary geometry... As Torricelli acquired increasing familiarity with the method of indivisibles, he reached the point of surpassing the master - as Cavalieri himself said' (DSB). In the second section, De moto gravium, Torricelli continued Galileo's study of the parabolic motion of projectiles. The treatise includes several significant contributions to mechanics, the calculus and ballistics. It also 'refers to the movement of water in a paragraph so important that Ernst Mach proclaimed Torricelli the founder of hydrodynamics' (DSB). This states 'Torricelli's theorem' in which Torricelli determined that the efflux velocity of a jet of liquid spurting from a small hole at the bottom of a vessel is equal to that which a single drop of the liquid would have if it could fall freely in a vacuum from the level of the top of the liquid..

        Kino's Historical Memoir of Pimeria Alta, a Contemporary Account of the Beginnings of California, Sonora, and Arizona, By Father Eusebio Francisco Kino, S.J., Pioneer Missionary Explorer, Cartographer, and Ranchman 1683-1711

      2 volumes: 379 pages with frontispiece, three maps and plans; 328 pages with frontispiece, plate, map and index. Royal octavo (9 1/2" x 6 1/4") issued in maroon cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Head page ends in gilt with deckeled fore-edge. Signed by Bolton. Spain in the West volumes 3 and 4. Limited to 750 copies. First editions.Eusebio Francisco Kino, c.1644?1711, missionary explorer in the American Southwest, was born Segno, in the Tyrol. He was in 1669 admitted to the Jesuit order. A distinguished mathematician, he observed the comet of 1680?81 at Cádiz, publishing his results in his Exposición astronómica de el [sic] cometa (1681). He arrived as a missionary in New Spain in 1681 and was appointed royal cosmographer to accompany the expedition to colonize Lower California. When the settlement in Southern California was abandoned, he went to Pimería Alta (now N Sonora and S Arizona), where he labored as a missionary, explorer, and colonizer until his death. He made more than 50 journeys from his base, the mission of Nuestra Señora de los Dolores in Sonora, frequently with only Native American guides as companions. He established agriculture at the missions he founded and brought in cattle, horses, and sheep; he distributed cattle and seed grain among the Native Americans. In 1701?2 he made two expeditions down the Colorado, on the second reaching the head of the Gulf and proving anew that California was not an island. He was the first to map Pimería Alta on the basis of actual exploration, and his map, published in 1705, and many times reproduced, remained the basis for maps of the region until the 19th century. His valuable historical and autobiographical chronicle, Favores celestiales, was edited by H. E. Bolton as Kino's Historical Memoir of Pimería Alta (1919)

        Advis pour dresser une Bibliotheque. Presenté à Monseigneur le President de Mesme

      Woodcut device on title. 4 p.l., 164 pp. Thick 8vo, cont. calf (upper joint with small defect at head), spine richly gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: Rolet le Duc, 1644. [oftentimes issued & bound with]:JACOB, Louis. Traicté des Plus Belles Bibliotheques Publiques et Particulieres, qui ont esté, & qui sont à present dans le monde. 10 p.l., 438 pp.; 1 p.l., 439-717, [73] pp. Two parts in one vol. 8vo. Paris: Rolet le Duc, 1644. A most appealing sammelband in fine contemporary state from the library of Claude Marie Févret de Fontette (1710-72), conseiller to the Parliament of Burgundy and editor of the Bibliothèque Historique de France. With Fontette&#39;s engraved bookplate. I. Second edition, "reveuë corrigée & augmentée" by Naudé himself, of a work of the greatest importance in the history of book collecting and libraries; Naudé&#39;s bibliographic canon still influences us today. It is the first comprehensive guide devoted to how to form a library in which Naudé also stresses the importance of making the library available to the public. One can understand the continuing importance of this book by noting the many reprints in French and translations into other languages well into the 20th century. Naudé (1600-53), Cardinal Mazarin&#39;s librarian, "advised collectors to buy books on all subjects, taking pains to seek out the best commentaries and critical editions; the contents were all-important, and nothing was to be bought on account of its antiquity, appearance or associations."-Hobson, Great Libraries, p. 14. Naudé said that it was necessary to gather all types of books, regardless of the author&#39;s religion or political beliefs. II. First edition of the first history of public and private libraries ever to be published. It is a scarce book and of great importance owing to the abundance of information contained in it. According to the Index, about 1000 libraries throughout Europe, both public and private, are described, among them many of which there is no further record. The account of English, Scottish, and Irish libraries occupies more than sixty pages and we find descriptions and histories of the various libraries at Oxford, Sion, the cathedral libraries, and many others. The descriptions of the libraries of France (pp. 439-717) are even more comprehensive and exact. Jacob (1608-70), French bibliophile and librarian, was inspired by Gabriel Naudé to write this book. Fine copies. Two ownership inscriptions on first title inked-out at an early date. &#10087; I. Viardot, Jean, "Naissance de la bibliophilie: les cabinets de livres rares," in Histoire des Bibliothèques françaises. Les bibliothèques sous l&#39;Ancien Régime 1530-1789, p. 270-"L&#39;Advis a exercé une influence profonde et durable sur le monde du livre. Il faut admettre avec Dacier qu&#39;il a été pour son temps &#39;un guide, le premier du genre où cette question était traitée d&#39;ensemble et sous tous ses aspects et qu&#39;il a occupé une place et joué un rôle éminents dans l&#39;histoire des idées&#39;." See Archer Taylor&#39;s edition of the Evelyn translation of Naudé&#39;s book (Berkeley & Los Angeles: 1950). .
