BAUDOIN (Jean), BOSSE (Abraham), MOREAU (Pierre) imprimeur
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.

Knox, John [1505-1572]
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, 'to the reader' & 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 '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. Malcolm Laing [1762-1818] edited Knox's works and also published a History of Scotland. Size: Square 8vo. 76 + 458 +139 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 4 lbs.

Guillielmi Pele, 1644-01-01. Hardcover. Acceptable. Folio. 38 cm. Contemporary leather. Worn cover. Boards detached. Title page printed in red and black. 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>'Matthew Paris (d. 1259?) is commonly regarded as England's greatest medieval historian. The 'Historia Anglorum', begun in 1250, is an abridgement, concentrating on English history, of the 'Chronica Majora', 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'. E. Graves. A bibliography of English history to 1485. Oxford, 1975, 2941

Impresa tipografica al titolo. Testatine, finalini e capilettera istoriati od ornati incisi su legno. Sparsi aloni marginali e bruniture, lievi quanto usuali. Bell'esemplare. Rarissima prima edizione di uno dei testi di maggiore importanza della letteratura antica sui Valdesi. L'opera è la seconda storia dei Valdesi in assoluto dopo quella del Perrin. "Le projet de cette nouvelle histoire des Vaudois fut conçu immédiatement après l'apparition de l'ouvrage insuffisant de Perrin...

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

Austine, Robert
London: Rich. Cotes for Joh. Bellamy. 1644. First Edition. Hardcover. Three quarter calf over marbled boards, some bumping to corners, spine ends and corners rubbed, bookplate on front pastedown, title page within border of printer's flowers, pamphlet trimmed close to text at upper margin but with no loss of text, some toning to paper but text remain clear and unmarked. (Wing A4253), Robert Austine (bap.1593-1661) was am Anglican clergyman and political pamphleteer. This current work is his best known. In it he seeks to show that it was the Oath of Allegiance to the Crown that compelled Parliament and its supporters to take up arms against King Charles I. While such an argument sounds strange to us now, it was one which had been deployed in various forms in both the run up to and in the early stages of the Civil War. It seems even those opposed to the King either believed in the ideal of monarchy or felt the need to assert that they did and so disagreements with the King were attributed to his 'evil counsellors' rather than to any action of the King himself. Austine follows this pattern and in his 'Address to the Reader' states that he is motivated only by patriotism and that he looked forward to the time when the king would ‘return in safety and his throne be established in judgement and justice’. , 4to , [12] 49 [1] pp .

A fine copy, heavily annotated in a contemporary hand, of this "masterwork of one of the most original geniuses in the history of science and medicine" (Neville). PMM 135; Norman 1048; Heirs of Hippocrates 409 & 409; Garrison-Morton 665.<br/><br/> "Helmont, who was himself an alchemist, marks the transition from alchemy to chemistry in the modern sense, and it is not surprising to find that he was much studied by Robert Boyle who adopted many of his ideas. Helmont therefore stands at the very beginning of the chemical revolution which was completed by Lavoisier in the eighteen century." (PMM). "Helmont was one of the founders of biochemistry. He was the first to realize the physiological importance of ferments and gases, and indeed invented the word 'gas'. He introduced the gravimetric idea in the analysis of urine. Helmont published very little during his life. The above work is a collection of his writings , issued by his son, Franz Mercurius. (Garrison-Morton). <br/><br/> "A Belgian mystic, Helmont was nonetheless the most prominent chemist of the first half of the seventeenth century. Originally an alchemist and a follower of Paracelsus in that his outlook was universal, he himself marks the transition from alchemy to the science of chemistry in the modern sense" (Heirs of Hippocrates). "In this work, Helmont established his name as one of the founders of biochemistry, although some authorities believe that he is perhaps overrated because of his vacillations between mysticism and science. In any event, his discovery of digestive juices in the stomach and intestine, and … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Choisy, L' Abbe Francois-Timoleon de
Small 8vo (6 1/4x4), period vellum, inked spine title, [4], 377, [3] pp. Vellum is a little stained and soiled, internally clean; a very nice copy. Choisy (1644-1724) was a missionary that was sent to Siam by Louis XIV to convert the king of Siam to Christianity. The format for this work is a diary that provides details of his trip. Prior to joining the missionary, Choisy appears to be an eccentric character, who was known to dress in woman's clothes. His memoirs were first published in 1732, and it appears they are still in print. The current work was first published in Paris a year earlier, and a second edition appears to have come out came out in that same year (1687).
