Bacon (Roger)
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, eighteenth-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.

[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.

Modern wrappers. 133 pp. (text set in two columns; last page in facsimile).Extracted from Commelin's collection of voyages. - 'Hagenaer, a VOC senior merchant, visited Japan three times: in 1634, in 1635-36, and again in 1637, years in which Caron was resident there. While Hagenaer attempts no comprehensive descriptions of Japan, his journal contains some interesting details about VOC trade in Japan, especially about the Dutch embassy in Edo in 1635-36, and some description of the sights and experiences along the way' (Lach & Van Kley, III, p.1868). His description of Japan is regarded, in terms of Dutch reports, as second only to that of François Caron (Howgego p.471).Landwehr, VOC, 250; Cordier, B.J., col. 338. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

SPILBERGEN, Joris van
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.

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 passsare 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 con difetti e abrasioni del foglio sono presenti nell'inciso e soprattutto ai margini bianchi, peraltro esemplare in margini e in buona impressione.

An excellent copy, carefully cleaned and pressed, title restored at gutter, very attractive, splendid tall copy. First Italian edition printed the same year as the first in Spanish; the simultaneity of both relations makes it impossible to assess to their priority in time. Ovalle provides a description of the geography and natural history of the province of Chile, including Tierra del Fuego, and describes the native populations who inhabited the region. In particular, this work is a highly important source for the study of the Araucanian Indians, as it deals at length with their social structure, political organization, diet, and domestic life. Ovalle also discusses the early contact period between the Spanish and Indians, the ensuing conflicts, the Spanish settlement, the advent of Catholic missionaries, proselytization and conversion, the role of the Society of Jesus, miracles and apparitions of the Virgin, and numerous other topics. Overall, it is one of the most primary and richest sources of information on the physical and cultural reality of the country, and provides a remarkable amount of information of the Indian ethnology. Ovalle (1601 ? 1651) was a Chilean born historian, educator and Jesuit; he lived in Rome from 1642 to 1650 where h … [Click Below for Full Description]

He was also involved in privateering and several settlement schemes along the Central American coast and in the West Indies. His signature is rare.

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.
