BEAUMONT, Francis, & John Fletcher.
London: for Humphrey Robinson, and for Humphrey Moseley, 1647. Folio (343 x 220 mm). Contemporary dark brown morocco for Charles II as Prince of Wales, gilt-ruled borders and frame with gilt-stamped floral cornerpieces, spine with six raised bands, divided into nine compartments by double gilt rules, gilt-stamped flower-head tool in each compartment, gilt-stamped supralibros (three ostrich feathers emerging from a coronet with motto "Ich dien"), early 19th-century marbled endpapers of the Schrottel Pattern. Bookplate of Robert S. Pirie. Head and foot of spine renewed, the portrait and 5 prelims (A1, A3, e2, f1, g2) supplied and with skilful cleaning and paper restoration at lower edges, extreme edges of margins very lightly browned, a handsome volume. Engraved frontispiece portrait of John Fletcher by William Marshall in second state (reading "Vates Duplex" for "vates duplex", and with "J. Berkenhead" in small type), woodcut head- and tailpieces, decorative initials. First edition, modelled on the first two folio collections of Shakespeare's plays (1623 and 1632) and the first two folios of the works of Ben Jonson (1616 and 1640-1). These folios are often credited with establishing a recognisably modern concept of the individual author, though the Beaumont and Fletcher folio is more problematic in that regard. It contains 39 plays, of which very few are actually collaborations between Beaumont and Fletcher. Even the preface acknowledges that several are written by Fletcher with Philip Massinger, rather than Beaumont. Editorship is usually assigned to the playwright James Sh … [Click Below for Full Description]

Leg. piena pergamena coeva con unghie, titoli ms. al dorso (un angolino guasto). Ottimo esemplare. Seconda edizione di quest'opera non comune, pubblicata dopo la prima rarissima del 1640; il successo del testo fu confermato anche da due traduzioni francesi settecentesche. Bogislav Philipp von Chemnitz (Stettino, 1605 - Hollstedt, 1678), nipote del teologo protestante Martin, fu nominato nel 1644 storiografo ufficiale della regina Cristina di Svezia, e in tale qualità scrisse anche la storia delle Guerra dei Trent'Anni; per i suoi servigi gli fu attribuito il possedimento di Hollstedt. In quest'opera egli tenta un bilancio della situazione dei paesi germanici sul finire di questa guerra, pochi anni prima della Pace di Westfalia (1648), e ritiene che questo ciclo storico sancisca la fine del Sacro RomaNo Impero e della dinastia asburgica; le diverse repubbliche e i principati germanici dovrebbero unirsi in una sorta di grande "Familia Germaniae" liberandosi degli Asburgo ("domus Austriac … [Click Below for Full Description]

With folding engraved chart of The Figure of The Philosophique Globe, or Eye of ye Wonders of Eternity, or Looking Glass of Wisdom. Original calf ruled in blind, small old paper shelf labels on backstrip. Bookplate of the Macclesfield South Library (Sapere Aude) and shelf mark 165 b 18. Early ink signature "Jo. Boseweth" on title, bland-stamped crest on title-page almost invisible. § Jakob Böhme was a German philosopher, Christian mystic, and Lutheran Protestant theologian. In one interpretation of Böhme's cosmology (as represented in the engraved chart), it was necessary for humanity to return to God, and for all original unities to undergo differentiation, desire and conflict—as in the rebellion of Satan, the separation of Eve from Adam and their acquisition of the knowledge of good and evil—in order for creation to evolve to a new state of redeemed harmony that would be more perfect than the original state of innocence, allowing God to achieve a new self-awareness by interacting with a creation that was both part of, and distinct from, himself. Free will becomes the most important gift God gives to humanity, allowing us to seek divine grace as a deliberate choice while still allowing us to remain individuals. Institutional plate from South Library. Ownership mark on title page.

FOLLIN, Herman (Hermanus FOLLINUS).
1647. 76 ll.Rare first (and only early) edition of a Dutch Hermetic textbook by the medical doctor Herman Follin, who was born in Friesland at the end of the sixteenth century and died of the plague in Cologne around the middle of the 17th century. Follin had a successful medical practice at s-Hertogenbosch and became professor of medicine at Cologne. His present work in Dutch, one of his first publications, presents alchemists and occult knowledge in clear and easy language for pharmacists and physicians. It is composed like a schoolbook, treating each subject succinctly in short chapters. The first chapter is devoted to alchemists knowledge of metals, presented in short propositions followed by their proofs. The second chapter, Die const Hermetis, ofte chymie , treats chemistry. In the third chapter, Van de eerste materie der philosophen, en van sijn ontallijcke vruchten , Follin gives a survey of the Hermetic-philosophical thought concerning the quintessence of matter. Den Nederlandtsche sleutel is a rare book, not recorded in the standard occult-chemical subject bibliographies, but found in some medical collections. It is a great example of how a medical doctor spread alchemical and occult knowledge among medical practitioners by presenting it in an understandable manner.With an owner's inscription of the Jesuit College at Brussels, dated 1647, at the head of the title-page. In good condition.l BMN, p. 528; Krivatsy 4149; Simoni F47; STCN (4 copies); not in Brüning, Caillet; Duveen; Ferguson; Wellcome.

"In 1564, Viète accepted a position in the household of the prominent family of Jean de Parthenay and his wife, Antoinette d'Aubeterre. In fulfilment of his responsibilities as tutor for their daughter Catherine, he wrote a collection of essays on various scientific subjects." (Bradley). The present compilation of three of these works first appeared posthumously in 1637, based on Viètes manuscript, under the title Principes de cosmographie ..., the three essays forming the three divisions of the book, on the geocentric universe, geography, and astronomy..It includes a section covering the geography of the Arabian peninsula (pp. 96-97), naming: Bahrain, Mecca, Aden, Ormuz etc.With owners' inscriptions (one dated 1657) and library stamps. Browned and with mostly marginal, water stains throughout. A reasonable copy. Binding still good. Cf. DSB XIV, pp. 18-25; M.J. Bradley, Pioneers in Mathematics: the age of genius, p. 16.

HILLE, Carl Gustav von. c. 1589-1647
Nürnberg: W. Endter, 1647. Slightly later marbled paper over thick pressed paper boards (worn), early manuscript-lettered paper spine label. ONLY EDITION, FIRST ISSUE, OF THE FIRST HISTORY OF THE FIRST AND MOST FAMOUS GERMAN LITERARY SOCIETY - its statutes, aims, activities, members (academy name, plant emblem, motto) and their published works. In 1617, with the Accademia della Crusca as his model, Prince Ludwig of Anhalt-Köthen established the Fruchtbringende Gesellschaft to raise German to a true literary language. He "initiated the members, gave them the insignia of the society in the shape of a medallion hung around the neck, assigned to them the new characteristic names, and immortalized each new member with a picture and a stanza in the society's manual" (Faber du Faur). Inducted in 1637, Hille puts prose, verse, songs, proverbs, chronograms, allegories, heraldry and emblems to his purpose along with contributions by fellow members Harsdörffer and Moscherosch. He incorporated English, French, Italian and Latin into his narrative and HILLE DESIGNED AND ENGRAVED ALL BUT ONE OF THE ILLUSTRATIONS HIMSELF.  Many of the incidental ornament is peculiar to this emblem book. For instance, some initials incorporate the society's device (a palm tree), others the palm fruit (coconuts), others still show shaking hands (the medieval German symbol for friendship, here introducing a poem on members' ties to one another) and a printing press tailpiece. There are reference to the New World, Columbus, America and the West Indies. A good copy (slightly browned, one musical note shaved) … [Click Below for Full Description]

FULLER, Thomas
Cambridge: Roger Daniel, and are to be sold by John Williams, 1647. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Thomas Fuller was a 17th-century English historian who particularly notable for his historical accounts of English worthies and the Church of England. In 1639, Fuller wrote 'History of the Holy War' - a popular book on the Crusades, taken from several notable and accurate accounts. It is curious though, Fuller wrote this work with an incredible amount of wit and humor, so much so that he included stories unrelated to the Crusades just to fill pages! According to Tyerman, "Thomas Fuller's 'History of the Holy Warre is one of the more interesting histories of the crusades written by an Englishman." While many works concerning the Crusades were written and published over the 17th- and 18th-centuries, Thomas Fuller's was the first Anglican view of the Crusades and the first in English following the Reformation. Modern Crusades scholars such as Christopher Howse describe Fuller's account as a mocking of the Crusades and the allure of Islamic pilgrimage. Fuller was even known to have said that Islam was "the scum of Judaisme and Paganisme sod together, and here and there strewed over with a spice of Christianitie".

Contents in excellent condition (light stain in outer margin of two leaves), complete with both folding tables (both with small tears without loss.) Illustrated with eighty-seven (87) woodcuts of gems and minerals, including geodes, hematite, crystals, corral, and fossils. Third and best edition (1st 1609, 2nd 1636), edited by the Belgian physician Adrian Toll (1610-1675), of “one of the most important mineralogical works of the seventeenth century, marking a transition over previous lapidaries” (Schuh). The mineralogical researches of Jan De Laet and the translation (presumably by de Laet) of Theophrastus’ “On Stones” are added here for the 1st time. "In his ‘Gemmarum et Lapidum Historia’ Boodt, the Bruges humanist and court physician to Rudolf II of Bohemia, made the first attempt at a systematic description of minerals, dividing the minerals into great and small, rare and common, hard and soft, combustible and incombustible, transparent and opaque. He uses a scale of hardness expressed in three degrees and notes the crystalline forms of some minerals (triangular, quadratic, and hexangular). Boodt criticizes some of the views of Aristotle, Pliny, Paracelsus, and others, but accepts the existence of the four elements and three principles, although he also mentions atoms. He enumerates 600 minerals that he knows from personal observation, and describes their properties, values, imitations and medical applications. There are … [Click Below for Full Description]

THEOLOGY - BOSSI, Giovanni Angelo.
Venetiis, Apud Paulum Baleonium, MDCXXXXVII [ 1647]. FIRST EDITION. 8vo, pp. [xxiv], 356, [36] index; some marginal soiling and browning in places, and some worming with the occasional loss of the odd letter; in contemporary vellum; title in ink on spine; binding soiled and worn, and somewhat loose. First edition of this theological and psychological treatise on scruples, by the Barnabite father Giovanni Angelo Bossi (1590-1665). This is Bossi's first major work of moral theology, and he returned to the theme a few years later in his three volume Moralia varia ad usum utriusque Fori. He divides the difficulties that can affect conscience into three types: erroneous conscience, doubtful conscience, and scrupulous conscience, treating the last in particular as essentially a mental illness, in need of cure. Bossi discusses the nature of scruples, the various causes, the consequences and the ways in which they lead to sin, the effect they have on knowledge and perception of both moral demands and facts, and the role of scruples in undermining marriage. The work saw a second edition in 1673, and then further editions in the eighteenth century. Bossi, in addition to his theological works, was also a noted jurist, and published works on the jurisdiction of bishops and the marriage contract. He was elected general of the Barnabites in 1653.

Leg. piena pergamena coeva con unghie, titoli ms. al dorso (un angolino guasto). Ottimo esemplare. Seconda edizione di quest'opera non comune, pubblicata dopo la prima rarissima del 1640; il successo del testo fu confermato anche da due traduzioni francesi settecentesche. Bogislav Philipp von Chemnitz (Stettino, 1605 - Hollstedt, 1678), nipote del teologo protestante Martin, fu nominato nel 1644 storiografo ufficiale della regina Cristina di Svezia, e in tale qualità scrisse anche la storia delle Guerra dei Trent'Anni; per i suoi servigi gli fu attribuito il possedimento di Hollstedt. In quest'opera egli tenta un bilancio della situazione dei paesi germanici sul finire di questa guerra, pochi anni prima della Pace di Westfalia (1648), e ritiene che questo ciclo storico sancisca la fine del Sacro RomaNo Impero e della dinastia asburgica; le diverse repubbliche e i principati germanici dovrebbero unirsi in una sorta di grande "Familia Germaniae" liberandosi degli Asburgo ("domus Austriac … [Click Below for Full Description]
