Giovanni Battista Ferrari
Rome. Giovanni Battista Ferrari (1584-1655) devoted himself to the study and cultivation of ornamental plants and in 1646 published Hesperides sive de Malorum Aureorum Cultura et Usu Libri Quatuor, the first book devoted to citrus fruit. These bold, detailed studies of citrus fruits showed each tied with ribbons and labeled with their specimen names. The sumptuous illustrations of specimens and information included in this book such as classification, origin and locations, methods of cultivation, and medical uses of citrus fruits were by Dutch printmaker Cornelius Bloemart, whom was from a family of Dutch artists and was known as a great botanical artist. This series includes 110 plates of depictions of mainly life-size fruits, whole and in section, along with foliage and flowers and a few cultivation, mythological and allegorical scenes. This engraving, 13.5" x 9.5" is in excellent condition with only slight staining in the margins and evidence of previous binding.

MERIAN, Matthaeus
Frankfurt:, c.1646. [World map] Size: 350 x 260 mm. Mounted size: 520 x 435 mm. Copper engraving. Later colour. Excellent condition. A very attractive and detailed world map, laid out according to Mercator's projection; text in German in ornamented gothic and Latin scripts; two polar hemispheres in the lower corners. The acclaimed Swiss engraver Matthew Merian prepared this world map from Blaeu's world map, though it lacks the latter's decorative border and is about two-thirds the size. Originally published in 1638, this copy, without Merian's signature, was prepared for Gottfried's Archontologica in 1646.

ALPINI, P.
Gulielmi Pele, 1646. Title in red and black, decorative woodcut on dedication, 3 full-page plates and 2 text illustrations. Nineteenth century boards, re-backed; interior is lightly toned throughout, with occasional spots and a small tear in the lower blank margin not affecting text. From the library of A. Gabriel Pouchet, with a stamp on recto of first blank leaf. Generally an excellent copy. First appearance of both treatises together. The present work is essentially the 1645 edition (printed by Nicolaus Redelichuysen) with a cancel title. The first book represents Alpini's best-known and most important medical work, a comprehensive account of Egyptian medical practice, and among the earliest accounts of non-European medicine. Of special interest is his introduction of moxa (mugwort) to European medical practice. The second book, on the medicine of the East Indies, was based on de Bondt's research in Java. It is divided into four sections: criticisms of Garcia de Orta's treatise on Asian materia medica; health and diet in the East Indies; Indian methods of treatment; and observations from autopsies. His treatise includes the first modern descriptions of cholera, beri-beri, tropical dysentery, and yaws, making it "a milestone in the history of medicine." n n

SUCKLING, SIR JOHN. Fragmenta Aurea. A Collection of all the Incomparable Peeces, Written by Sir John Suckling . Printed by his owne Copies. London: For Humphrey Moseley, 1646. [6], 119, [7], 82, 64, [4], 52 p. Engraved port. by William Marshall. Contemporary calf, gilt fillet and cornerpieces, red morocco spine label. Portrait and first two leaves with two very tiny holes at the gutter, worm trail in lower margin of first three gatherings, else a very nice copy in a lovely contemporary binding. Bookplate of C. Pearl Chamberlain and book label of Abel Berland. Fine red morocco pull-off case. Accompanied by an A.L.S. of John Suckling (1569-1627), father of the poet, Goodfathers, 29 July 1625, to an unnamed recipient, seeking information on his election as a burgess in Yarmouth. First edition, first state of the title, with "FRAGMENTA AVREA" in upper case, a period after "Churchyard" in the imprint, and the rule under the date; A3v:16 reads "allowred." Second state of the frontispiece, re-incised with heavier lines around the leaves of the garland and the bulge in the left sleeve. According the Beaurline and Clayton, the plate was most certainly re-incised in the course of printing and is fairly evenly distributed with the various states of the title. Suckling is perhaps best remembered for the fine lyrics in his dramas, including the famous line "Why so pale and wan, fond lover?" (in Aglaura). D'Avenant called Suckling the greatest gallant and gamester of his day. He is also remembered as the inventor of the game of cribbage. L. A. Beaurline and T. Clayton, "Notes on Early E … [Click Below for Full Description]

Regius Henrici [Henri van Roy]
Amsterdam: Ludovicum Elzevirium, 1646. RARE First Edition. Illustrated throughout with fascinating woodcut engravings in the text, many of which are quite large, also with engraved initials. Small 4to, in a modern binding of paper covered boards, the paper is a facsimile of a double coloum incunable printed leaf thus mimicing the common practice of the time for printers to use old text leaves for binding purposes, endpapers and blanks renewed. ]xvi], 306, [1]. A fine copy for a book of this age and rarity, the top margin trimmed a bit close but not effecting the headlines, a bit of expected toning or spotting to the paper.

Nött samtida skinnband, guldornerad rygg med upphöjda bind, pärmarna med förgyllda dubbla ramlinjer, röda stänsksnitt. Ryggen litet trasig upptill. Äldre raderad namnteckning på försättsbladet. Ur Christian H. Braads bibliotek, med hans namnteckning, daterad Norrköping 23 april 1746, och hans notering på försättsbladet att han fått den av Harald Urlander i Norrköping. 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 furst … [Click Below for Full Description]
