It is signed by Robert Rich ("Warwicke"), Dudley North, John Rolle, John Trevor, Alexander Berne. Robert Rich (1587-1658) was an important English political figure in the 17th century. Involved in Parliament, he also held command of the Royal Navy, and was involved in several colonial American ventures. After failing to persuade the original Puritan "pilgrims" to settle in Guiana, Rich - as a member of the Council for New England - secured for John Peirce the patent on which the Plymouth colony existed for the first eight years. He likewise signed the second patent for William Bradford in 1630, and was instrumental in the patent for the Massachusetts Bay Colony. He was also involved in privateering and several settlement schemes along the Central American coast and in the West Indies. His signature is rare.

        L'Historia di Milano volgarmente scritta nella quale non solamente si veggono l'origine, i fatti, et le fortune di essa città, nello spatio di due mille cento anni; ma gli accidenti, et le resolutioni di quasi tutta l'Italia, et di molte Provincie, et Regni del Mondo ancora. Con le vite insieme di tutti gli Imperatori.

      Frambotto,, In Padoa, 1646 - Due opere in un volume di cm. 22, pp. (72) 982; (1) 111 (1). La seconda opera, con autonomo frontespizio titola: CORIO B. Le Vite degl'Imperatori, incominciando da Giulio Cesare fino a Federico Barbarossa. In Padoa, Paolo Frambotto, 1646. Legatura strettamente coeva in piena pergamena semirigida con titoli manoscritti al dorso. Bell'esemplare, genuino e marginoso. Pregiata riedizione secentesca della celebre storia di Milano del Corio, pubblicata per la prima volta nel 1503 e costituente la più compiuta ricostruzione storiografica delle vicende milanesi compiuta nel Rinascimento. La trattazione, quanto a impostazione tipico portato della storiografia umanistica, parte dalle origini della città per giungere sino alla fuga di Ludovico il Moro in Germania. La seconda opera delinea le biografie di numerosi Imperatori da Giulio Cesare sino a Federico Barbarossa. Il Corio (Milano, 1459-in località non conosciuta, 1519 ca.) fu storico, giureconsulto e letterato. Dal 1474 al servizio di Galeazzo Maria Sforza, in seguito alla sua morte passò al servizio di Gian Galeazzo Maria e assunse svariati incarichi pubblici (nel 1499 fu nominato giudice delle strade) nel periodo del ducato di Ludovico il Moro. Alla caduta del Moro abbandonò Milano, e non si conoscono con certezza ne' la data ne' il luogo della sua morte. STC XVII Century, 261. Michel-Michel, II, 130. Cat. Hoepli, 649. Cfr. Predari, p. 136.

Armes frappées aux centres des plats : d’azur, à un faisceau d’or, lié d’argent, du milieu duquel s’élève une hache consulaire de même : à la fasce de gueules, seulement chargée de trois étoiles d’or. Bel et précieux exemplaire en maroquin rouge provenant de la bibliothèque du cardinal Mazarin (1602-1661), successeur du cardinal de Richelieu en tant que ministre d’État de 1643 à 1661. Grand amateur des lettres et des arts, Jules Mazarin, avait rassemblé dans son palais de magnifiques collections de livres et d’objets d’art. Sa première bibliothèque, comprenait la collection formée par Siméon Dubois (Bosius), continuée par Jean Descordes et comptait 6 000 volumes au moment de son acquisition par le cardinal. Mazarin l’ouvrit au public dès 1643 et la fit augmenter d’ouvrages achetés en France et à l’étranger par Gabriel Naudé : en 1647, elle était la plus belle d’Europe et comptait plus de 45 000 volumes magnifiquement reliés par des artistes éprouvés. Cette bibliothèque fut saisie par le Parlement et vendue en 1652 (Fronde Parlementaires). Lors de son retour aux affaires en février 1653, Mazarin, avec l’aide du bibliothécaire La Potterie reconstitua sa bibliothèque ; de plus, beaucoup de livres lui furent renvoyés par les amateurs qui les avaient acquis à la vente. Le cardinal acheta également la bibliothèque de Naudé, comprenant plus de 8 000 volumes, si bien qu’en 1660 la seconde bibliothèque égalait la splendeur de la première. Mazarin la légua au collège des Quatres-Nations qu’il avait fondé. Elle est devenue aujourd’hui la Bibliothèque Mazarine. L’auteur reprend dans toute leur ampleur les idées qu’il avait toujours soutenues dans sa lutte contre la Compagnie de Jésus et les congrégations en général et les exposent dans son grand ouvrage de synthèse : De Hierarchia ecclesiastica. Libri qvatvor. Il y insiste particulièrement sur les droits et l’autorité fondamentale de la hiérarchie ecclésiastique en opposition aux ordres religieux. La polémique, chez François Hallier (1585-1659), se résolvait toujours en dogmatique. FIRST EDITION VERY SCARCE. MAZARIN LIBRARY. VERY GOOD COPY. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Chez Augustin Courbé 1646 - - Chez Augustin Courbé, A Paris 1646, In 4 (17x22,5cm), (16) (16) 384pp., relié. - Edition originale collective contenant certaines pièces inédites. Un des rares exemplaires contenant les deux épîtres de Bois-Robert et de Scarron (la majorité des exemplaires contiennent moins de feuillets préliminaires). Un portrait au frontispice de l'auteur dessiné par Petrus et gravé par Daret une vignette de titre, marque de l'imprimeur en page de titre. Plein Velin souple d'époque. Dos lisse muet. Taches claires sur le plat supérieur. Travaux de vers sur les feuillets préliminaires, après les deux premiers feuillets, en marge basse bien que confinées dans la marge, nombreuses dentelles au milieu des feuillets préliminaires. A signaler également, une galerie de vers sur la table et partant des derniers feuillets de texte, toujours en marge basse. Quelques rousseurs et feuillets jaunis. Cette édition a été en grande partie préparée par l'auteur lui-même, conscient de la valeur de son oeuvre et de sa fin prochaine (décédé en 1646), elle contient 268 pièces, dont 173 inédites. Certaines pièces qui avaient paru dans des recueils collectifs ne figurent pas dans cette intégrale. François Maynard est l'un des pricipaux noms de la poésie de la première moitié du XVIIe, au côté de Malherbe, Racan, Viau, Regnier. Disciple de Malherbe, sa poésie se distingue par la grande clarté de son style et la régularité de ses vers il s'en dégage en outre une certaine mélancolie.

Al frontespizio in rosso e nero, piccola marca tipografica con figura femminile che sotto il sole versa dell’acqua da un vaso su di un piccolo albero, entro cornice con il motto Donec Optata Eniant Rigabo, attorniata da racemi. In basso un piccolo scudetto con le lettere S R. Testate, capilettera e finalini ornati.Il frontespizio è rinforzato con una striscetta di nastro trasparente e presenta un buco per il resto lo stato delle carte che pur presentano un piccolo alone all’angolo superiore destro ed un piccolo, sottilissimo lavoro di tarlo al margine bianco delle pp. 423-540, è buono, salvo la normale ossidazione.

L’opera è composta da tredici libri: i primi sei sono dedicati alla geometria piana, i successivi tre alle proprietà dei numeri razionali, il decimmo agli irrazionali. Gli ultimi tre libri sono dedicati alla misurazione dei volumi dei solidi: parallelepipedi, prismi e piramidi ed a quelli dei coni, cilindri e sfere. Gli ulteriori due libri, quattordicesimo e quindicesimo sono invece attrubuiti ad Hypsicle. A partire dal XVI secolo l’opera cominciò ad essere tradotta anche in lingua francese. Pierre Le Mardelé della cui vita non si hanno notizie, e che fu autore di un trattato di matematica nel 1626, fu violentemente attaccato dal contemporaneo Henrion, che aveva curato un’altra traduzione nel 1631.

        Afbeeldinge der voornaemste gezichten van Duinrel gediestig opgedragen door zyn hoog-edels onderdanigen dienaer.[Amsterdam], Pieter Schenk, [ca. 1720]. Oblong royal 4to (ca. 23×28.5 cm). With engraved title/dedication and 16 numbered engraved views (15×18.5 cm). Modern half sheepskin parchment.

      The Anglo-Dutch Garden 76; Hollstein (Dutch & Flemish) XXV, p. 228, 1234-1258; Springer Bibl. Overzicht, pp. 43-44. A complete set of 16 numbered views of the magnificent buildings, gardens and woods of Cornelis de Jonge van Ellemeet's "Duinrel" estate, built on the edge of the dunes near Wassenaar. Like the other great Dutch estates of the 17th century, it included gardens, fountains, mazes, etc., but it is distinguished from the others by its extensive woods and uncultivated land, and its location at the edge of the sand dunes near the coast. This silvan flavour is also reflected in the emphasis on the Greco-Roman goddess Diana in the decoration, and the present series of engravings includes the Diana pavilion.When Ellemeet (1646-1721), Procurer General for the Dutch Republic, bought the estate in 1680, much of it was still wild land and dunes, and in the next two decades he turned it into the lavish wooded estate shown in the present prints. While some great estates of the day appeared in many different print series over the years or have even survived to the present day, the various views by Schenk are nearly the only surviving images of Duinrel.In very good condition, with large margins and only an occasional very minor spot. A fine and historically important series of prints of the Duinrel estate.

        Observationes defectus lunaris Grenovici habitæ in observatorio regio februarii 11/21 1682. p.m. [London, 1683]. From Philosophical Transactions , vol. 13, pp. 89-92. With: (2) FLAMSTEED, John. An abstract of a letter from Mr. J. Flamsteed, ... giving an account of the eclipses of [Jupiter]s satellits, anno 1686; and containing a table of the parallaxes of [Jupiter]s orb, and an ephemeris of [Jupiter]s geocentric places for the same year. [London, 1685]. From Philosophical Transactions , vol. 15, pp. 1215-1230. (3) FLAMSTEED, John. An abstract of a letter from Mr J. Flamsteed. ... giving the description & uses of an instrument for finding the distances of [Jupiter]s satellits from his Axis, with the help of the table of parallaxes and catalogue of eclipses; printed in the preceding Transactions. [London, 1685]. From Philosophical Transactions , vol. 15, pp. 1262-1265. With an engraved astronomical instrument for calculating the positions of Jupiter's moons. 3 parts. 4to. Disbound.

      www.adsabs.harvard.edu (under Flamsteed and Flamsteedio); for Flamsteed's life: DSB V, pp. 22-26. Three astronomical articles (2 in the form of letters) by England's first Royal Astronomer, John Flamsteed (1646-1719) at the Greenwich Observatory from its establishment in 1675, published in the Philosophical Transactions of the British Royal Society in the years 1683 and 1685. The first article gives observations of a 1682 lunar eclipse by Flamsteed himself, Edmund Halley and a certain Haynes. The second gives Flamsteed's calculations of the eclipses of Jupiter's four moons for the coming year 1686, intended in part as an aid to the determination of longitude. The third gives an engraved dial with four scales around its perimeter, with Flamsteed's description of its use to calculate the positions of Jupiter's moons.. Flamsteed's magnum opus, his great star catalogue and charts, appeared posthumously in 1725 and 1729, so his most important publications during his own lifetime were a single book in 1680 and a dozen short astronomical articles in the years 1672 to 1686, three of them present here. The articles and plate have been disbound, but they are otherwise in very good condition, with only some minor spots in the text and a couple tears (one repaired). Three of Flamsteed's rare non-posthumous astronomical publications, with an engraved plate of his calculating dial.
