        The Booke Called, The Mirrour of Justices: Made by Andrew Horne...

      1646. First English-Language Edition of Horne's Mirrour of Justices Horne, Andrew [d.1328]. H[ughes], W[illiam], Translator. [Fitzherbert, Anthony (1470-1538)]. The Booke Called, The Mirrour of Justices: Made by Andrew Horne. With the Book, Called, The Diversity of Courts, And Their Jurisdictions. Both Translated Out of the Old French into the English Tongue. London: Matthew Walbancke, 1646. [xxxii], 288, 287-325, [9] pp. Recent period-style calf, blind rules to boards, blind fillets to spine, front free endpaper renewed, later armorial bookplate of the Earl of Macclesfield to front pastedown, small embossed Macclesfield stamp to head of title page. Woodcut head and tail-pieces. Some browning to text, faint dampspotting in places. Early owner signature (of Thomas Clarke) and annotation to front free endpaper, occasional annotations to margins. * First edition in English and the second edition overall. Written about 1290, The Mirrour of Justices became an authority in the latter part of the sixteenth century when English lawyers began to look to Glanville, Bracton, and Britton as guides to put the common law into a more logical arrangement. It was not a reliable source, however. As Maitland observed, it is "the work of one profoundly dissatisfied with the administration of the law by the king's judges. As against this he appeals to myths and legends about the law of King Alfred's day and the like, some of which myths and legends were perhaps traditional, while others were deliberately concocted. Intelligently read it is very instructive; but the intelligent reader will often infer that the law is exactly the opposite of what the writer represents it to be." Mirrour was first published in Law-French in 1642. The Diversity of Courts is by Fitzherbert. A note of the front free endpaper says: "Note in going over the Mirror Justices in French I cursorily compar'd the French with the English & wherever there appear'd any material error in either of 'em I corrected it in the margin."

Er war ein Sohn des bedeutenden lutherischen Theologen Aegidius und Bruder von Nikolaus Hunnius. 1630 konvertierte er zum katholischen Glauben "unter dem vorwand / weil die lutherische lehr an und vor sich selbst ein böses leben verursache / worinn ihm aber D. Himmel in Jena wohl geantwortet. [..] Unter seinen Juristischen schrifften aber sind die 'resolutiones [etc.]', worüber er mit Bachovio [Johann Jakob Bachofen] in sehr grossen streit gerathen." (Iselin 1726, p. 867). Vgl. ADB 13, p. 418 f.; Ladvocat (nur Ulm 1760, sp. 1970 f. unter 'Aegidius Hunnius'); Wetzer/Welte 1889 (6, 429 f., unter Aegidius H.); Hauck 1900 (8, p. 458, 50 ff., unter Aegidius H.); Baumberger (Hsg.), 1933 (5, 202), und besonders eigenständig, ausführlich u. informativ Bayle 1730 (822-825, Aegidius H.). "L'un d'eux se fit Catholique Romain. Il etoit Jurisconsulte, & s'apelloit Helfricus Ulricus Hunnius. [.. Il] publia a Giesse [..] quatre Livres 'variarum Resolutionum Juris Civilis', a Francfort l'an 1620, [etc.]." (loc. cit. p. 824, Anm. I). -- Besitzervermerk (Autograph) 'Pauli Buolij Rhätj. A. 1653 Bas. [Basilea / Basel] d. 13 Januar.' In Frage kommt dafür eigentlich nur Paul Buol [-von Strassberg und von Schauenstein] (1629 od. 1634-ev. 1697), von Parpan, der Sohn des Obersten in spanischen Diensten und geachteten Politikers und Staatsmannes im Zehngerichtenbund, Johann Anton Buol von Strassberg (1600-1662). Paul Buol war Landammann des Gerichtes Churwalden, Bundeslandammann [des Zehngerichtenbundes] 1673, Landeshauptmann des Veltlins 1681, dann Syndikatur-Präsident, Oberst in spanischen Diensten [usw.]. Er trat 1691(?) zur katholischen Kirche über, 1692 (1670?) erwarb er die Hälfte des Schlosses Rietberg im Domleschg, woher die Familie das weitere Prädikat 'von Rietberg' führte. (HBLS, 2, p. 434, Nr. 8; als Todesjahr wird 1677 angegeben, was aber offensichtlich falsch ist). Vgl. auch E. Poeschel, Kunstdenkmäler des Kantons Graubünden, 3, 1940, bes. p. 118 (Rietberg), und P. Gillardon, Geschichte des Zehngerichtenbundes, 1936, p. 193 u. 211. "Nach seinem Konfessionswechsel Entzug des Landrechts im Zehngerichtenbund. [..] Um 1675 Hausbau in Chur (seit 1872 Rätisches Museum)" (J. Simonett, in: HLS). - "Im letzten Jahrzehnt des ausgehenden 17. Jahrhunderts ist auch ein neues Zunehmen der konfessionellen Gegensätze festzustellen. So erregte im Jahre 1690 in Chur und im Zehngerichtenbund der Uebertritt des Obersten Paul Buol von Parpan zum katholischen Glauben allgemeines Aufsehen. In Chur kam es deswegen zu einem eigentlichen Auflauf." (Gillardon, op. cit. p. 211). Angesichts der ähnlichen konfessionellen Umstände bei Autor und Vorbesitzer des vorliegenden Werkes dürften diese detaillierten Erläuterungen angebracht sein. - Sinnspruch wohl von gleicher Hand "Symb. quicquid agis prudenter agas et respice finem" : i.e. Was immer du tust, handle mit Bedacht und bedenke das Ende.

        Eroberung der Statt Loando de Sanct Paolo in Angola in Affrica

      1646 - A famous slave-port portrayed by Merian. c.1646. Slight uniform toning. 320 mm x 210 mm. Uncommon view of Luanda published by Merian; the city was formerly known as Sao Paulo da Assuncao de Loanda, the largest city in Angola and a famous port in the West coast of Africa. Luanda was founded in 1576 by Portuguese Paulo Dias de Novais and remained under Portuguese ruling until a Dutch overtaking from 1640 to 1648. The city is still an important port, and one of the fastest growing cities in the world, again as a port in a country now producing oil; the importance in the 16th to 18th century, however, was based on the fact that it was the center for the slave trade to Brazil.

        FRAGMENTA AUREA. A COLLECTION OF ALL THE INCOMPARABLE PEECES, WRITTEN BY SIR JOHN SVCKLING

      London: Humphrey Moseley, 1646. FIRST EDITION . Hardcover. 178 x 114 mm (7 x 4 1/2"). 4 p.l. (including the frontispiece), 119, [1] pp; 3 p.l., 82 pp; 64 pp; 2 p.l., 52 pp. Four parts in one volume. FIRST EDITION. ANIMATED BROWN CRUSHED MOROCCO BY RIVIERE & SON (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with large panels of inlaid crimson morocco covered with cirling gilt tendrils bearing many rosettes, the crimson inlay surrounding two large lobed panels, the upper one with gilt titling, the lower one with author and date, both accented with an inlaid ochre morocco tulip and two fan shapes; raised bands, spine compartments with central quatrefoil formed by four inlaid ochre tulips, all edges gilt. Engraved frontispiece portrait. Front pastedown with engraved bookplate of Frank Fletcher. Pforzheimer 995; Wither to Prior 827; Hayward 84; Greg, p. 1130; Tinker 2000; Wing S-6126. Head edge trimmed a bit close at times (but with no loss), isolated short marginal tears or mild smudges, a faint overall brown cast to leaves (probably from light washing many years ago), but still A FINE COPY in all important respects, the text smooth and clean, and the lovely binding lustrous and entirely unworn. This is a spirited 20th century binding that loosely reinterprets the "cottage roof" style that was popular at about the time our 17th century collection was printed. These "Golden Fragments" comprise all of the significant works of Suckling (1609-42), a dashing Cavalier, lady's man, and gambler (he is said to have been the inventor of cribbage). Although he raised a troop to support the king in the First Bishops' War, he was accused of treason in a plot to free the Earl of Stafford, and he apparently committed suicide as a result. Although his poetry is not profound, he writes well-crafted short colloquial stanzas, and as a careless and impudent light lyricist, gaily pursuing women and never letting himself get caught, he is extremely good. In addition to his poems, the present collection contains, among other things, Suckling's letters to important personages as well as three dramatic works. Nearly all of the several portions making up the text were printed for Moseley by one of two women, Susan Islip or Ruth Raworth. Almost all of the items appearing here are printed for the first time. Our sparkling binding is an impressionistic version of a "cottage roof" design, with the rounded brown roof-like compartments peeking through the gilt-tooled red inlay, the latter decorated with a more modern controlled riot of roses. As a whole, then, the binding recalls of the Golden Age of English bookbinding in a manner that is reminiscent more than it is derivative.

With title page in red and black inks and fine engraving (other sections with additional use of red inks), sections with decorative head and tailpieces and initial capitals. Works arranged in 16 parts with extensive use of diagrams, formulae and tables. Section XIV, on the Gregorian Calendar, has a separate title page and 3 volvelles (discs to manipulate attached to the page) - XV has a separate title and both XIV and XV make extensive use of red inks. The vellum binding has conservation work (a separate statement of conservation works to this book can be provided on request) to provide some light cleaning and particularly to repair the bottom corner of the back board. There is a small title - Vieta - to the top of the spine. Internally there is an armorial bookplate to the front pastedown with the title Reg.Schol.Westmon. There is an ink word on a preliminary and very occasional pencil or ink annotation. There have been paper repairs to remove mould and build up the bottom corner of pages particularly to the rear of the book. This work has been expertly done to conservation standards. There is very occasional staining to a page or a slight mark but otherwise the text and volvelles are in beautifully clean condition. The book has a slight musty odour. Some ink hand written notes giving a biography of Viete and Van Schooten are enclosed - they look to be from around 1900. Please ask for more images and more detail on condition and conservation work if you are interested in the work. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Dutch text to verso; illuminated initial. Title cartouche with 7 coats of arms plus 2 blanks: Royal crests. Bright original colour; clean; hardly visible printers crease close to centrefold, Good. Willem Janszoon Blaeu [1571- 1668] had set up the business in Amsterdam 1596 following studies with the famous astonomer Tycho Brahe. In 1630 Willhem published his first atlas "Atlas Appendix", having published maritime cartography, books, charts and pilot guides for previous thirty years. Appointed Hydrographer of the V. O. C. ( United East India Company)in 1633 he died in 1638. leaving the company to his sons Joan and Cornelius Of Cornelius little is know; his name appearing on in the prefaces of books and atlases only until c1645. Dr Joan Blaeu [ 1596-1673] who had studied at Leiden took over the management of the business and established its fame. He was also appointed Hydrographer to the V. O. C. ( 1638), but his interests leant more to geography than maritime cartography. His aim was" a full description of heaven, earth and water" ( Koeman) which was unachievable. but his work produced the magnificent "Atlas Major" and the Town books of the Netherlands and Italy; works unsurpassed in history and modern times. The "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum " or "Atlas Novus" Willem Blaeu's great project enlarging the "Appendix" was advertised in 1634, was first published in a preliminary edition in 1635. (preface dated 10-3-1634) two volumes. The final edition comprising again two volumes with 109 & 99 maps respectively with German text also published 1635; an edition with Dutch text, (preface dated 22-4-1635) 104 & 103 maps; French text( preface dated 1-7-1635) 105 & 103 maps; and with Latin text (preface dated "ipsis Aprillis")105 & 102 maps. In 1640, after Willem's death a Third volume with French text and comprising 58 maps of Italy and 8 of Greece, was published; later the same year an edition was produced with Latin text. Still in 1640, variant editions in both languages were issued with an appendix of 4 maps of the British Isles as a precursor to the Fourth volume, which would be a complete description thereof. In 1645 the Fourth volume, "Le Theatre du Monde ou Nouvel Atlas, Mis en lumiere par Guillaume et Jean Bleau. Quartiesme Partie. " with a dedication to " A la serinissme Princesse Henriette-Marie Reine de la Grande Bretagne, France & Yrlande. " was published; preface dated 1 October 1645. This volume consisted of 58 maps with description of all the British Isles. The "Atlas Novus" was eventually extended to six volumes with the addition of a fifth volume, Scotland in 1654 and the following year a sixth the "Atlas Sinensis"of Martini. Joan Blaeu recognised that the wealthy patrons who would buy such an atlas were primarily concerned with display, thus aesthetic considerations were emphasised: the quality of the paper, binding, beautiful typography and bright colour, making maps from the Blaeu printing house amongst the most decorative of their time. Blaeu eventually updated and extended the "Theatrum" producing the "Atlas Major" in various formats from 9-12 volumes Koeman1, Bl 45A. [321. ] British Isles Norfolk

        Christ Mighty in Himself & Members: revealed in some short Expressions by way of Catechisme. Wherein is demonstrated, that according to the Scripture (sence & phrase) and the experience of them that do beleeve, the saving and joyful knowledge of God & man, (and althings [sic] else that relate to either) is alone in the spirit, by Jesus Christ. To which is added (occasionally) a hint of the nature of the kingdome of God (as it is even now to faith.).

      Printed by J.M. for G. Calvert 1646 - FIRST EDITION, title within border of typographical ornaments, with an engraved frontispiece, a bit browned or soiled in places, pp. [2, including frontispiece], 240, 12mo, original calf, spine mostly defective due to insect damage, likewise the adjacent part of lower cover, worn, 18th-century engraved armorial bookplate inside front cover, sound A curious and rare little book. Bacon was a chaplain in the family of William Fiennes, first Viscount Saye and Sele (1582–1662) - Old Subtlety, as he was known - and the book is dedicated to the Viscountess. ESTC states ‘With an engraved title page (A2) and initial blank leaf’, but in fact the first leaf has on the verso ‘The mind of the Frontispiece.’ The work is strongly anti-Catholic, but in-fighting among Protestants is censored too, and its slightly odd phraseology is adumbrated in the long title.

Colmeiro, La Botánica y los botánicos de la península hispano-lusitana, página 158. Mar Rey Bueno, De exámenes, ramilletes y simples incógnitos: la obra farmacéutica de fray Esteban Villa en la Biblioteca Histórica Marqués de Valdecilla. Miguel López Pérez y Mar Rey Bueno, Aguas destiladas y aguas alquímicas en la España moderna, Azogue, 5, 2002-2007. Segunda edición, la primera apareció en 1637.Ésta es la obra más importante del monje benedictino Esteban de Villa, Burgalés de origen. Dedicó gran parte de su vida a la farmacia, tanto la práctica diaria entre morteros y alambiques -fue Regente de la botica del Hospital de San Juan de Burgos- como la disertación teórica a través de las cinco obras que publicó. Fue uno de los farmacéuticos mas instruídos de su época e hizo una contribución significativa al desarrollo y renovación de la terapéutica española del siglo xvii. El objeto de Villa "fue distinguir bien las plantas usadas en Medicina, para evitar las equivocaciones que, segun aparece en el prólogo, resultaban de la ignorancia de los boticarios, poco ejercitados en el conocimiento de las plantas." (Colmeiro). Por su condición dentro de la Iglesia y su aceptación de la astrología, se ha considerado que representa la conjunción de ésta con la ortodoxia religiosa; Villa acepta la influencia de los astros sobre la vida vegetal y recomienda tener aquéllos en cuenta para fijar el momento más oportuno para la recolección de las plantas. Otra nota a destacar es su defensa de los medicamentos químicos, que se convierte en ataque a los médicos que no se atreven a prescribirlos.La obra está dividida en tres partes, la primera trata de las plantas en general, su sexualidad, la influencia de los astros y las partes útiles en medicina. La segunda parte consta de 45 capítulos dedicados a otras tantas plantas y aclarar las dudas que pudieran aparecen en el uso de determinados simples; y la tercera, escrita a modo de recetario de todos los compuestos usuales de la época, con las aclaraciones más necesarias.

        The Booke Called, The Mirrour of Justices: Made by Andrew Horne

      1646. Horne, Andrew [d.1328]. H[ughes], W[illiam], Translator. [Fitzherbert, Anthony (1470-1538)]. The Booke Called, The Mirrour of Justices: Made by Andrew Horne. With the Book, Called, The Diversity of Courts, And Their Jurisdictions. Both Translated Out of the Old French into the English Tongue. London: Matthew Walbancke, 1646. [xxxii], 288, 287-325, [9] pp. First leaf blank. Octavo (5-1/4" x 3-1/4"). Recent period-style calf, blind fillets to boards, blind fillets and gilt title to spine, endpapers renewed. Woodcut head and tail-pieces. Moderate toning, light foxing in places. Early owner annotations and signature (of Jacobi Bremridge) to front endleaves, small tear to title page mended with archival tape. An appealing copy. * First edition in English and the second edition overall. Written about 1290, The Mirrour of Justices became an authority in the latter part of the sixteenth century when English lawyers began to look to Glanville, Bracton, and Britton as guides to put the common law into a more logical arrangement. It was not a reliable source, however. As Maitland observed, it is "the work of one profoundly dissatisfied with the administration of the law by the king's judges. As against this he appeals to myths and legends about the law of King Alfred's day and the like, some of which myths and legends were perhaps traditional, while others were deliberately concocted. Intelligently read it is very instructive; but the intelligent reader will often infer that the law is exactly the opposite of what the writer represents it to be." Mirrour was first published in Law-French in 1642. The Diversity of Courts is by Fitzherbert. A note of the front free endpaper says: "Note in going over the Mirror Justices in French I cursorily compar'd the French with the English & wherever there appear'd any material error in either of 'em I corrected it in the margin."

        Map of New Guinea

      Amsterdam,: Jansson,, 1646.. Engraved map, 185 x 435 mm.; with central fold, in fine condition mounted. Important early map of the Pacific with insets of the Le Maire Strait and New Guinea from Commelin's compendium of Dutch voyages, Begin Ende Voortgangh (see catalogue number 75).This map comes from the chapter which describes Spilbergen's second voyage to the Moluccas via the Strait of Magellan and the narrative of Le Maire and Schouten's voyage of 1615-1617 to the Australian regions. The momentous Pacific crossing of Le Maire and Schouten was 'the last expedition of the seventeenth century to search for Terra Australis from the east...' (Schilder).The larger inset shows Le Maire's discoveries along the northern coast of New Guinea, including the detailed voyage track. Of particular interest is the westernmost island depicted, which clearly shows Gilolo. Gilolo or Jailolo, which is situated on Halmahera - the largest island of the Moluccas - was the original home of Giolo, Dampier's "Painted Prince". Giolo and his mother had been captured and sold as slaves at Mindanao to Moody, an English trader. Dampier purchased a half-interest in Giolo, during his trading voyage of 1690 (described in New Voyage round the World, 1697) and returned with him to London.
