More than 3000 people were marshalled by the officers of the College of Arms for a funeral based on that of Henry, prince of Wales, to whom Essex had been companion in his teenage years: 'almost all the details of the composition of the cortege seem to have been copied copiously from accounts of Henry's funeral' (Adamson, 'Chivalry and political culture', 191) ... Essex was buried, on 22 October 1646, with the pomp so long denied him in life, and was laid to rest in Westminster Abbey. Richard Vines, an old friend and minister of the parish within which Essex House lay, preached a funeral oration on a text from the second book of Samuel, about how Abner had delivered the Israelites from the tyranny of Saul (explicitly, Charles I) and subjected them to the sceptre of David (explicitly, parliament)" (ODNB).

        Flora, seu De Florum Cultura Lib. IV. Editio Nova. Accurante Bernh: Rottendorffio, Sereniß. Electoris Colon: Medico Cubiculario, &c.

      Jan Janszoon (apud Joannem Janssonium), Amsterdam 1646 - Format: Quarto in 8s (9 1/4" x 7 1/4", 236mm x 184mm). ?2 (?)4 ?-4?4 5?2 A-Ii8 Kk6 Ll4 Mm2 (Mm2 blank), blank [$4 (–(?)4, ?4, 2?4, 3?4, 4?4, A1, D4, G1, P4, Kk4, Ll4; N4 missigned as "4. N.", O3 missigned as "G 3"]; 285 leaves (including plates) + 1 additional plate; pp. [48], 522, [12]. Collated perfect with Bayerische Staatsbibliothek copy (Res/4 Oecon. 124) Number of Volumes: Bound in contemporary full vellum with yapp edges. Six cords visible at hinges. On spine, pasted orange hand-written title-piece (Ferrarius. s.j. / Flora.). Edges of text-block stained red. Fore-corners slightly bumped, yapp edges slightly soiled. Patches of light soiling to covers and to top and bottom edges of covers. Splits to front and rear paste-downs. Plate opp. p. 125 misprinted as 119; p. 123 (engraving of narcissus bulb and leaves) pasted over. As in other copies, there is an added plate between Aa6 and Aa7 (numbered 381, opposite p. 381). Edge-stains dark and even. On the front paste-down, a smudge of the red pigment from the edge-stain. Almost entirely devoid of foxing and tanning. Engravings crisp and vivid. A bright, tight, unsophisticated copy. At the lower fore-corner of the frontispiece, old ownership stamp of the Lyons Jesuit College (Lugdunensis Soc. Jesu), and, at the upper edge of the front paste-down, their (presumably) shelf-mark (1f –175B 2, 248). Ferrari (1584-1655), a Sienese Jesuit, was Professor of Hebrew and of Rhetoric at the Jesuit College in Rome, and at the same time advisor to the pope on the Vatican gardens and to Cardinal Francesco Barberini, whose Horti Barberini were the laboratory of this endeavor. The fruit of this learning is this four-book treatise ranging from the tools of the gardener to the morphology of flowers, the layout of gardens and the arrangement of flowers in a vase. The work is a milestone both in the breadth of its treatment of interest in flowers, as well as marking the standards of Italian taste in the early seventeenth century. Notably, the work features the first ever botanical illustration based on microscopy (Ii2r, p. 499). No book had ever been so systematic in its analysis of flowers. The first edition was published Rome 1633, and is rather scarce. 1638 saw translation of the work into Italian (as Flora overo cultura di fiori ). This 1646 edition, which declares itself to be a "new edition, refined by Berhnard Rottendorf", is nearly identical to the 1633 edition, the pagination even lining up (save minor alterations such as the replacement of "v" with "u"). The major addition is a 36-page dedicatory letter from Bernhard Rottendorff (1594-1671), a Jesuit medical doctor and chamberlain to the Archbishop of Cologne, to Count Franz Wilhelm von Wartenburg, Bishop of Osnabrück. The plates have, I believe, been re-cut, the original artists’ names having also been removed. The plates are continuous in pagination (i.e., integral with the text), and some retain their deckled fore-edge, suggesting very minimal trimming. Coffin, David.

        Florae Lugduno-Batavae flores sive enumeratio stirpium Horti Lugduno-Batavi.Leiden, Frederik Haaring, 1690. 8vo. With engraved frontispiece. 18th-century vellum.

      Kuijlen & Wijnands, Paradisus Batavus 79; Stafleu & Cowan 2686; STCN 833427695. First and only edition of a Latin flora of the botanical garden at Leiden University, with the plants arranged in a classification scheme prefiguring Linnaeus, references to the relevant literature and an appendix with further details about the characteristics with references to the catalogue itself, by Paul Hermann (1646-1695) director of the botanical garden. It was edited by Lothar Zumbach von Coesfeld (1661-1727) and lists about 600 plants, with an alphabetical index. For most plants it cites either Hermann's more extensive 1687 alphabetical catalogue of the collection or Gaspard Bauhin's 1623 Pinax theatri botanici , another landmark of plant classification. Hermann, born in Halle an der Saale, sailed with the VOC (Dutch East India Company) to Ceylon in 1672 and collected many plants there. As a professor of botany and medicine at Leiden University, he directed the University botanical garden from 1679 to his death in 1695. He made it the richest garden in Europe during the Dutch golden age, always looking over his shoulder at his leading competitor, Jan Commelin at the Amsterdam botanical garden.The presumably blank *8 has been removed as intended, as in all copies we have seen. With one early manuscript marginal note in Latin. Book and binding in very good condition. An important Leiden flora and an early example of a botanical catalogue arranged according to a classification scheme.

        Asia carta di ciasete piu moderna.

      Florence: 1646 - 2 sheets joined (23 x 17 ½ inches, trimmed margins showing the platemark). Fine engraved map showing Japan with ornate cartouche and compass rose (very light toning, some separation along the fold). Robert Dudley's splendid Arcano del mare (Secrets of the Sea) is one of the greatest and most complex atlases of the world ever produced. Dudley's monumental work was the only exception to the total dominance of sea-atlas production by the Dutch for nearly a century. The complete work contained nearly 150 sea charts as well as dozens of illustrations and working diagrams. It was superior to any previous work in that the charts illustrated the whole world, and the first time any outside of Europe had been included. Arcano del mare was also the first atlas to show the prevailing winds, currents and magnetic deviation. In using the projection developed by Mercator, Dudley improved upon the theory of navigating by the "Great Circle," the shortest distance between two points on a globe. It was not until the eighteenth century that cartographers used the projection consistently, and during the prolonged period when the Dutch dominated cartographic production, not one atlas was produced using it. One of the great marine atlases of all time, this magnificently engraved work is an encyclopedia of seventeenth-century knowledge regarding the seas. Dudley was one of the more colorful and adventurous characters in the history of mapmaking. The illegitimate son of the Earl of Leicester and Lady Douglas Sheffield, but unable to establish his claim to the title of Earl of Leicester, Dudley left England in 1605. Arriving in Florence, Dudley entered the service of the Cosimo II, Grand Duke of Tuscany, as an engineer and naval commander. In 1646, Dudley published Arcano del mare, the whole written in Italian by Dudley himself. The atlas was twelve years in the making, and the main innovation lay in its conception of a world atlas of charts, both general ocean charts and detailed surveys, covering all the rival spheres of European dominion: Spanish, English and Dutch. Dudley's sources included the original charts of Henry Hudson, and for the Pacific coast he used the observations of Henry Cavendish, the third circumnavigator of the globe (and Dudley's brother-in-law). Aesthetically, the distinctive character of Dudley's charts was due to the Italian Baroque engraving, executed by Antonio Francesco Lucini.

        La perspective du Pont Neve de Paris.

      - Incisione in rame all’acquaforte, 1646 circa, b/n, cm 36 x 68,6 (alla lastra), firmata e datata in lastra, in bs. al centro: "Ste. Della Bella Florentinus In. e Fe. et D. D. 1646. Cum Privielegio Regis". Prova nel secondo stato su quattro, impressa su carta databile alla metà del XVII secolo (al più tardi tra la fine del XVII e l’inizio del XVIII secolo). Il primo stato, raro secondo il De Vesme, non ha con certezza il gallo sul campanile della chiesa sullo sfondo, alla metà del margine destro, che invece qui compare (per quanto con tentativo di abrasione, forse per far passare l'esemplare per un primo stato - si considera come terzo stato quello impresso su carta databile tra la fine del XVIII e l’inizio del XIX secolo; come quarto stato quello impresso su carta databile nella seconda metà del XIX secolo). Ben riconoscibile il Pont – Neuf con la statua di Enrico IV, sullo sfondo le torri di Notre Dame. Diciotto titoli di legenda divisi in due gruppi di nove. Filigrana con stemma e corona, sulla destra del verso del foglio. Con un buon margine tutt’intorno, oltre l’impronta del rame. Alcuni punti di ossidazione, abrasioni del foglio nell'inciso ma soprattutto ai margini bianchi, esemplare in margini e in buona impressione.

        Hesperides sive de malorum aureorum cultura et usu. Libri quatuor.

      Rome: Hermann Scheus, 1646. - Folio (13 6/8 x 9 inches). Allegorical engraved frontispiece, 101 engraved plates on 100 sheets by Cornelis Bloemaert "one of the great Dutch seventeenth-century botanical artists" (Hunt) and others. Contemporary calf elaborately decorated I blind panels (spine worn with minor loss, extremities scuffed). Provenance: with the ownership inscription of the College of the Society of Jesus at Brussels at the head of the frontispiece, dated 1647. First edition of the first book entirely devoted to describing and celebrating citrus fruit, and one of the most attractive of all Baroque botanical works. The 79 magnificent, bold, and detailed life-size studies of citrus fruits by Cornelis Bloemaert, shown with ribbons labeled with their specimen names, depict the plants being grown in the Baroque gardens of Rome. The other 22 engravings showing methods of cultivation, tools etc, are also by important Roman classical painters: two allegorical plates are after drawings by Nicolas Poussin (Friedlander & Blunt, "Catalogue Raisonne" II, 46), and others are after Pietro da Cortona, Francesco Albani, Guido Reni, and Andrea Sacchi. The gardens of the Villa Aldrobrandini are depicted by Filippo Gagliardi and those of the Vila Farnese by Girolamo Rainaldi. The accompanying text classifies the plants, gives details of their origin and location, methods of cultivation, and medical uses. Ferrari was born into a prosperous Sienese family in 1583 and entered the Jesuit Order in Rome in 1602. He was a Professor of Hebrew and Rhetoric at the Jesuit College in Rome, and significantly a horticultural advisor to the papal Barberini family. He a friend of the scholar Cassiano dal Pozzo (1588-1657) who was also an advisor to the Barberini family. "Through this connection, Ferrari joined an important circle of men of science in Rome, and was appointed to manage the new garden at the Barberini Palace which was unique as a showplace for the newest and rarest plants from the distant regions of Asia, Africa, and America. The cultivation of new specimens led Ferrari to the subject of botanical nomenclature, and he became a leading 17th century source for nomenclatural definition. Ferrari's first book was a Syriac Lexicon, and he also published a series of 'Orations'-treatises on Rhetoric which emphasized good Latin usage. His last publication was a book on Sienese saints" (Missouri Botanical Garden online). However, Ferrari's greatest works were the "De Florum Cultura" (1633) and the "Hesperides sive de Malorum Aureorum cultura" (1646), as here. In this last he worked closely with Cassiano, who was intensely interested in the citrus family, he "not only corresponded extensively on the subject, he collected specimens from many quarters. In its final form, Hesperides was a collaborative work even though Cassiano's name is not included in the authorship. He was the source of much of the information for the book, while Ferrari was the editor, composer, and author; Cassiano also managed the financing of the publication. "Hesperides" is a book in four parts with the first part elaborating on the archaeological, numismatic, mythological and etymological background to citrus lore. The next three parts are about citrons, lemons, and oranges respectively. Perhaps the most notable aspect of these three sections is Ferrari's extensive and dedicated effort to establish precise taxonomic data" ((Missouri Botanical Garden online).

        A Looking-Glasse for Sope-Patentees: or a prospective-glasse, making discovery of a new projects contrived and propounded (by the sope-projectors) to the Parliament, to monopolize the soping-mystery, under pretences of good to the State in the duty of excize.

      London, printed in the year 1646. 4to., title printed within typographical border, 8pp., final page rather soiled else a very good untrimmed copy, now bound in 20th century calf gilt and labelled. First edition. Wing L.3026. Goldsmiths 910. The subject of the tract is expanded and somewhat clarified on p.3:- 'The sope-boylers of London's New-project, or the last sope-patentees, and most ancient projecting monopolizers of the sope-boyling art. Propositions now presented by them to the Honourable House of Commons, for the monopolizing of the sope-boyling art, by authority of Parliament, first proposed, then answered or expounded'. [bound with, but after], A short and true relation concerning the soap-business. Containing the severall patents; proclamations, orders, whereby the Soape-makers of London, and other His Majesties subjects, were damnified, by the Gentlemen that were the patentees for soape at Westminster, with the particular proceedings concerning the same.> London, printed for Nicholas Bourne at the South Entrance of the Royall Exchange, 1641. 4to., 29 + (1)pp., wanting the final blank D4, small repaired defect on lower blank corner of title (nowhere near printed surface), else a very good, crisp, copy entirely uncut. First and only edition. Amex 420. Goldsmiths 724. Kress 603. Wing S.3555. See Scott, The Constitution and Finance of English, Scottish and Irish Joint-Stock Companies to 1720> I, p.219. An interesting and amusing tract on commercial rivalry, monopolistic oppression, consumer fraud and the making of soap, with reference to the Greenland Whale Fishery Company. In 1631, hoping to exploit the soap trade as a source of revenue, Charles I granted a monopoly of soap-manufactures to a Westminster group made up of inexperienced Catholic recusants. The new patent was justified on the basis of invention which allegedly made a better, cheaper white soap without the use of whale oil, which had been the key ingredient in the patent of the dispossessed London soap makers: the latter were now ruthlessly suppressed, brought before the Star Chamber, and even jailed. In this petition the Londoners narrate the extraordinary repressive measures taken against themselves and the general public and expose the fraud of their Westminster rivals, who in fact continued to use whale oil while producing an inferior and more expensive product. 'The economies, as a matter of fact, had not become actual; and the new company, working by its old methods, would be forced, in justice to itself, to recover the Crown-royalty as well as the sums paid to the members of the late society of Soapers. Moreover, when it obtained a monopoly, it was not in human nature for the soap-boilers to abstain from obtaining pecuniary compensation for their past sufferings by surreptitiously advancing prices, in spite of proclamations to the contrary effect. Therefore it follows that the consumer was destined to pay heavily for the disturbance of the trade during the past five years: and until the abolition of monopolies of this character, the price was close upon double what it had been in 1630'.

        Haarlem - Joan Blaeu, 1649.

      HAARLEM IN DE GOUDEN EEUW"Harlemum vernacule Haerlem', kopergravure voorstellende een plattegrond van Haarlem vervaardigd door Pieter Wils in 1646, uitgegeven ca. 1649 door Joan Blaeu te Amsterdam als deel van het "Tooneel der Steden van de Vereenighde Nederlanden'.Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (prent) ca. 46,5 x 57 cm. Door de inname van Antwerpen door Spaanse troepen in 1585 vluchtten duizenden naar de noordelijke Nederlanden. Vlaamse textielarbeiders zochten een veilig heenkomen in onder andere Leiden, Amsterdam en Haarlem. Het Haarlemse stadsbestuur was zich er van bewust dat ze deze nieuwkomers moest zien te behouden om de eigen in verval geraakte textielnijverheid nieuw leven in te blazen en kwam hen tegemoet met riante subsidies, tijdelijke belastingvrijstellingen, gunstige vestigingsvoorwaarden, maar vooral door het aanbieden van woon- en werkruimte. Daartoe werd een aantal kloosters afgebroken en werden de vrijgekomen terreinen verkaveld in woonerven.Eind zestiende eeuw waren de meeste open plekken in de stad opgevuld. De toestroom van vluchtelingen bleef evenwel onverminderd aanhouden. Hoewel verboden, moest het stadsbestuur toezien dat er ook buiten de stadsmuren een allegaartje aan bebouwing ontstond.De stad kreeg pas in 1610 weer een beetje lucht, toen het enorme terrein ten zuidwesten van de stad voor bebouwing werd gereserveerd. Het hele terrein werd verkaveld in zo"n 250 percelen. Deze kaart van Pieter Wils laat zien hoe zuinig er met de grond werd omgesprongen. Vrijwel nergens is een tuintje te zien en in sommige woonblokken staan de huizen zelfs rug aan rug.Een laatste kans om grootschalig te bouwen kreeg de stad in 1625 toen het kloosterrein van de Johannieterorde in handen van de stad viel dat verkaveld werd in zo"n honderd erven.Prijs € 1.350,- (incl. lijst) .

        Vindiciae vindiciarum: Or, a vindication of his Vindication of infant-baptisme, from the exceptions of M. Harrison, in his Poedo-baptisme oppugned, and from the exceptions of M. Tombes, in his chief digressions of his late Apology, from the manner to the matter of his treatises.

      First edition of this defense of Geree's Vindiciæ pædo-baptismi (published in 1646), itself a reply to both Infant Baptism God's Ordinance by Michael Harrison and Two Treatises and an Appendix to Them Concerning Infant-Baptisme by John Tombes. Geree, a Church of England clergyman, may be best remembered for his summary of Puritan philosophy, The Character of an Old English Puritan -- the publication of which was another result of the voluminous controversy with Tombes over infant baptism. Uncommon: OCLC, ESTC, Wing, and NUC Pre-1956 report only eight U.S. holdings, one of which has been deaccessioned.

      London: Pr. by Ric. Cotes for Steven Bowtell 4to (19.1 cm, 7.5"). [8], 256, [4 (index)] pp.. 1646 First edition of this reply to Tombes's Two Treatises — one of the most passionately debated publications of the infant baptism controversy — written by a popular and influential preacher. Marshall, John Geree, John Tombes, and a number of the most prominent theologians of the day debated prolifically on the topic; here, Marshall re-engages with Tombes's "destructive Artifice" (p. 3). Some holdings report (variously) 10 or 12 preliminary pages as present, but signature A is complete here, including one blank leaf. Recent marbled paper wrappers. Some light staining to a few early leaves, pages otherwise almost entirely clean.

        Al rey nuestra Señor, por la Provincia de la Compañía de Iesus de la Nueva España. En satisfación de un libro de el visitador obispo D. Juan de Palafox y Mendoza.

      The legendary feud between Bishop Juan de Palafox y Mendoza and the Society of Jesus was acrimonious, lengthy, and rich in legal filings. The main point of contention between the opposing parties was the failure of the Society to submit to the authority of the bishops and archbishop of Mexico, and this had a subchapter concerning the Jesuits' refusal to tithe to the ecclesiastical authorities. The present filing by the Society via its lawyer is a reply to Father Palafox's Al excelentissimo señor Don Garcia de Avellaneda i Haro conde de Castrillo . . . presidente en el Real y supremo [Consejo] de las Indias; el dean i cabildo de la Santa Iglesia de la Puebla de los Angeles, published 1646? (see: Medina, BHA, 6946). => Sabin characterizes the Society's reply as "rabid." There are two editions of this work: The other has only 131 leaves and contains a typographical error on the title-page ("lirro" for "libro"). In this edition the "Apendiz al Memorial. Aduertencias a quien lo huuiere leido," pp. 242-78, is by Juan Antonio Jarque. The place of printing has long been a matter of conjecture because of the paucity of studies of typography and typographic norms in Mexico and Puebla in the 17th century. We admit to no scholarship on the topic of typefaces but do have extensive experience with the paper used in Mexico and Puebla in the 1650s and the watermark in this edition is that of paper widely used there. Provenance: Bookseller's label of the Libreria de San Martin in Madrid.
