        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) .

      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.

        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.

Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. Warmholtz 1376. Carlander II, 597f & III, 568ff. Första upplagan, tryckt av Johannes Jansonius i Amsterdam. Denna första del av planerade tre var allt som utkom, p.g.a. författarens död. En ny upplaga trycktes i Antwerpen 1658 och då utkom alla tre delarna. Faxardos historik över goterna som börjar med Alarik blev väl mottagen i Sverige och Sparwenfeld översatte den till svenska redan 1699, varav några ark hann tryckas innan arbetet avbröts. Warmholtz nämner att den svenska utgåvan skulle förses med spanska kungarnas porträtt som graverats i Rom. Här blandar Warmholtz dock troligen ihop det med de av Truls Arwidssons graverade plåtarna till en planerad svensk utgåva av Tesaurus bok om göternas och langobardernas historia (se Klemming En antecknares samlingar s. 3). Den spanske politikern och filosofen Don Diego Saavedra Faxardo (1584-1648) var bl.a. spanskt kungligt råd vid fredförhandlingarna i Münster. Hans mest kända bok är kanske emblemboken och furstespegeln ?Idea de un Principe Politico Christiano? Christopher Henrik Braad (1728-81) var en framstående litterär samlare med ett stort bibliotek i historia och antikviteterna. Han skriver i kommentaren på försättsbladet att han fått denna fina och sällsynta bok av Dragsdisponenten i Norrköping Harald Urlander. Urlander, som blev disponent på Drags (Norrköpings yllefabriksaktiebolag) 1736 efter Petter Ehrenspetz, är känd för att han tvingade kvinnorna på Spinnhuset i Norrköping att arbeta där. 1748 gick han dock i konkurs.

        Pseudodoxia Epidemica: Or, Enquiries Into Very many received Tenents, And commonly presumed Truths.

      By Thomas Browne Dr. of Physick. London, Printed by T.H. for Edward Dod, and are To be sold in Ivie Lane, 1646. F?'cap folio (so watermarked); license leaf present, but without the final blank; text printed within line border throughout; large historiated initial on A3, woodcut initials elsewhere, and head-pieces of type ornaments; pp.[xx (not paginated)]+386; a6, b, A - T, V, X - Z, Aa - Ii, Kk - Tt, Vv, Xx - Zz, Aaa4, Bbb5 (ex 6); nineteenth century polished calf ruled gilt, tooled blind, at borders, gilt tooled edges, neatly re-backed with matching calf, ruled and tooled gilt on spines, red lettering-piece; matching oil-marbled edges and end-papers, the end-papers strengthened with linen at the gutters. Small split in a1 (not touching printed area) unobtrusively strengthened, and small hole in blank upper margin of a2 neatly almost invisibly repaired with matching paper (both being original paper flaws); small hole in T3 due to an original paper flaw, with loss of one letter on each side of the leaf; quarter inch chip to extreme blank lower margin of F3; otherwise an excellent, clean, copy with good margins. Wing, B5159; Grolier 107; Wellcome II, p.253; Keynes [73B]; NCBEL, I, 2230. There is an alternative 1646 imprint [73A] with the printer?'s name in full and with no address, which Keynes reports as ?'less usual?' and ?'likely to be the earlier?'. The rest of the title-page was printed from the same setting, ?'so the change was probably made while the book was in the press.?' The present copy has the wrong catchword on A6v (?'THE?' instead of ?'A?') and p.317 misnumbered 217, apparently as always. The first edition of Browne?'s most famous and substantial work in which he applies his brilliant scientific mind to a wealth of common misconceptions, at the same time providing a fascinating account of popular superstition and tradition. The book, which came to be known as Browne?'s ?'Vulgar Errors?', was the result of many years of experimental investigation, and, written in an extravagant style described by Johnson in his Life as ?"a tissue of many languages; a mixture of heterogeneous words, brought together from distant regions, with terms appropriated to one art, and drawn by violence into the sevice of another?", it also provides for the modern reader an ?"inexhaustible store of entertainment?" - (D.N.B.). Browne?'s complaint against the science of the day was that it turned its back on nature and relied on tradition. ?'Intellectual acquisition?', he wrote in his introductory address To the Reader, ?'is but a reminiscential evocation, and new impressions but the colouring of old stamps which stood pale in the soul before.?' He addressed his accusations of ?'vulgar error?', not to the ignorant, but ?'the knowing and leading part of Learning?' with the hope that he might awaken an intellectual conscience in them. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

        Pseudodoxia epidemica: Or, enquiries into very many received tenents . . .

      T. H. For Edward Dod, London 1646 - Browne, Thomas (1605-1682). Pseudodoxia epidemica: or, enquiries into very many received tenents, and commonly presumed truths. Folio. [20], 386pp. Lacking final blank. London: T.H. for Edward Dod, 1646. 272 x 178 mm. 19th century calf, with arms of Sir William Stirling-Maxwell (1818-78) on front and back covers, some wear at spine and edges. Margin of first leaf expertly repaired, tear in title also repaired, title a bit soiled, but a very good copy. Stirling-Maxwell’s very large armorial bookplate inside front cover. First Edition, second state, with the imprint as above. In his second and largest work, often referred to as "Browne’s Vulgar Errors," Browne drew upon his many years of reading, observation and experimental investigation to refute popular misconceptions in the fields of history, folklore, science, philology, natural history, medicine and embryology. Browne conducted numerous experiments in physics, comparative anatomy and biology, many of which were reported in Pseudodoxia epidemica; he also coined the term "electricity" (first printed here) to describe certain electromagnetic phenomena. "Except in matters of religious faith, [Browne] was unwilling to accept anything without carefully examining it in the light of such facts as he could gather. He has thus expressed himself regarding his own attitude: ‘In philosophy, where truth seems double-faced, there is no man more paradoxical than myself, but in divinity, I love to keep to the road’" (Keynes, p. 51). This copy displays the probable second state of the title, with the imprint reading "Printed by T.H. for Edward Dod, and are to be sold in Ivie Lane." The probable first state, which is scarcer, has the imprint reading "Printed by Tho. Harper for Edvvard Dod." Keynes, Thomas Browne, 73B. Norman 358. Wing B-5159. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Thaumaturgus opticus

      1646 - frontispice, portrait, (34), Paris, F. Langlois, 1646, in-folio, frontispice, portrait, (34), 222 pages et 42 planches, vélin ancien, Première édition latine, en partie originale. La première partie de cet ouvrage, est la seule parue d'une œuvre plus vaste que Niceron ne put mener à bien et dont la première édition date de 1638. A sa mort en 1646, ses amis reprirent son manuscrit et le publièrent dans sa version latine sous le titre Thaumaturgus Opticus. Mais l'achèvement de cette publication fut finalement accompli par Marin Mersenne, puis, à la mort de ce dernier, en 1648, par Roberval, et donna lieu à une édition en français en 1651-1652. "C'est un travail scientifique où la science évolue dans l'atmosphère d'un conte. [.] Conçue comme une machine de précision, avec ses agencements secrets, la perspective qui éloigne et rapproche, qui fait bouger et qui anime les formes de l'univers de l'illusion", appartient aux miracles, à la magie, à la poésie. (Baltrusaitis, Anamorphoses ou perspectives curieuses, Perrin, 1950, p. 22). Bien plus tard, cet ouvrage inspirera fortement l'artiste Marcel Duchamp, qui le cita ainsi dans sa Boîte blanche : "Voir Catalogue de la bibliothèque Ste-Geneviève, toute la rubrique Perspective, Niceron (Le père J, Fr.), Thaumaturgus opticus". Beau portrait frontispice gravé par Simon Vouet et 42 planches gravées sur cuivre, représentant diverses vues perspectives, des anamorphoses linéaires et circulaires. Petites restaurations en marge des derniers feuillets et rousseurs, quelques feuillets légèrement brunis. Les 18 dernières planches ont été reliées à l'envers. Bon exemplaire.
