        The History of the Parliament of England: Which began November the third, M.DC.XL. With a short and necessary view of some precedent yeares

Raised bands. Title page in red and black lettering. Engraved vignette. Decorative headpieces, initials, and tailpiece. Commissioned by the House of Commons to compose a history of the Parliament, Thomas May's "The History of the Parliament of England" is a shining example of rhetorical humanist historiography, complete with abundant classical citations (especially from Marcus Annaeus Lucanus, better known as Lucan). In this work divided into three books, May presents recent English history as the wrecking of a peaceful and prosperous Elizabethan society by the greed and stupidity of the Stuarts.Binding rubbed along edges, and repaired at upper joints. Closed tear at upper front joint. Offsetting along edges of endpapers. Modern watermarked front free endpaper. Blank side of first leaf repaired with binder's tape.

HAPPEL Eberhard Werner Guerner (1647-1690) Schriftsteller, Polyhistor u. Historiker. Der Sohn eines lutherisch reformierten Pfarrers studierte ab 1663 Mathematik, Medizin und später auch Jura in Marburg. Seit 1668 lebte er in Magdeburg, Harburg u. zuletzt in Hamburg, wo er seine schriftstellerische Tätigkeit aufnahm. Einem einjährigen Aufenthalt in Kiel, folgte 1674-79 eine Anstellung in Holstein. Danach kehrte er nach Hamburg zurück und lebte dort als Lehrer und Schriftsteller, bis er ebenda im Alter von 42 Jahren verstarb. Er schrieb umfangreiche höfisch-galante Geschichtsromane und gilt als einer der großen Romanschriftsteller des späten 17. Jahrhunderts. Goed. schreibt dazu wenig schmeichelhaft: "Seine Romane waren ihrer Zeit ebenso beliebt, wie die Luise Mühlbach in neuerer Zeit und ebenso wertlos wie diese." Daneben trat er als Übersetzer des Valerius Maximus und Autor historischer Werke, insbesondere der "Relationes curiosae", hervor. Vorliegender Roman erschien posthum. In der nicht unterzeichneten Vorrede wird H. nicht ausdrücklich als tot bezeichnet, doch deutlich gesagt, daß in seiner Manier fortgeschrieben sei. Es erschienen dann noch 2 weitere Werke unter seinem Namenschiffre im gleichen Verlag. Es fehlt eine in den Anweisungen für den Buchbinder angeführte Tabelle. Das Porträt zeigt den bayrischen Kurfürsten Maximilian II. Emanuel, der der Widmungsträger des vorliegenden Werkes ist.

        Le Vite de' più eccellenti Pittori, Scultori et Architetti. In questa nuova edizione diligentemente riviste, ricorrette, accresciute d'alcuni ritratti & accresciute di postille nel margine. Al Serenissimo Ferdinando II Granduca di Toscana

      presso gli Heredi di Evangelista Dozza, 1647. In-4° antico (238x170mm), pp. (18), 432 (le prime due parti dell'opera in numerazione continua e in un unico volume), legatura settecentesca m. pelle con titolo, filetti e fregi floreali in oro su dorso a nervi. Antiporta allegorica incisa su rame da Bloemaert su invenzione del Canini (alla quale si ispira il Livaldini per il suo sonetto), mancante alla quasi totalità degli esemplari. La vita di ogni artista reca in principio, a tre quarti di pagina, un ritratto xilografico dell'artista in questione riprodotto fedelmente sugli stessi legni dell'edizione Giunti del 1568, per un totale di oltre 90 incisioni xilografiche. Finalini ornati e figurati su legno, iniziali ornate ed istoriate. Dedica a stampa (datata da Bologna, 21 marzo 1647) dell'editore del testo, Carlo Manolessi, al Granduca di Toscana, Ferdinando II, in principio del primo volume, ed altra avvertenza del Manolessi ai lettori. Al cominciamento dello stesso volume, l'ode di Giovan Pietro Bellori "Sopra l'Ara dell'Eternità" ed il sonetto di Giuseppe Livaldini "Sopra il Frontespizio del Vasari disegnato dal Signor Gio. Angelo Canini". Cerniere restaurate, mancanze marginali alla prima carta di dedica, alle pp. 37-38 e 373-374; numerose pp. posposte, aloni marginali ad alcune pp. In buono stato complessivo. Il solo primo volume della terza edizione in assoluto dell'opera, la seconda figurata (la narrazione giunge qui sino a Luca Signorelli). Importante riedizione secentesca ampliata, di una delle pietre miliari della storia della storiografia artistica. L'impressione, estremamente pregiata, riproduce la lezione testuale e le silografie (riutilizzando i legni originali) della prima edizione figurata, la giuntina del 1568 (la prima assoluta è del 1550), ma con l'aggiunta di centinaia di note marginali e di una mezza dozzina di ritratti del tutto nuovi, sempre incisi su legno e nello stile iconografico di quelli originali della stampa giuntina. "...The first modern history of art. It has made Vasari's name immortal...Vasari's excellent sense of narrative...and lively style combined with his wide personal acquaintance makes his "Lives" a vital contribution to our understanding of the character and psychology of the great artists of the Renaissance...It became a model for subsequent writing on the history of art and was the forerunner to the remarkable series of studies on the various Italian schools of painting produced in Italy during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries" (P.M.M.). Il capolavoro vasariano abbraccia la storia delle arti in Italia da Cimabue sino al manierismo tardocinquecentesco, costituendone la principale fonte documentaria, destinata a fissare le linee portanti della storiografia (con la preminenza conferita a Firenze rispetto agli altri centri di produzione) e della critica artistica sino a Bernard Berenson; le "Vite", scrive Benedetto Croce, "sono solcate da lampi quali non rifulsero giammai nell'antichità". Interessante osservare come qui ricorra per la prima volta il sostantivo "rinascita" riferito alla periodizzazione artistica. Manca alla Vinciana e al Cicognara. Cfr. Moreni, II, 430; Gamba, 1725 (cita indirettamente questa ristampa attraverso le parole di Luigi Lanzi); Brunet, V, 1096; Graesse, VII, 264, note; Sidney Churchill, "Bibliografia Vasariana", passim. Per la prima edizione, Schlosser Magnino, p. 332 e P.M.M., n. 88. Italiano

        Il fusto di una colonna

      1647 - Acquaforte, circa 1647/50, firmata in lastra in basso a sinistra. Stato unico. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "agnello pasquale nel doppio cerchio" (Heawood 2838), con sottili margini, minime ossidazione, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Conosciuto come il Bolognese, Grimaldi era probabilmente nato in questa città intorno al 1606 e, in effetti, la produzione degli ultimi anni fu fortemente influenzata dai suoi primi contatti con la tradizione dei Carracci. Grimaldi realizzò oltre cinquanta incisioni di paesaggi, tutti fortemente influenzati dalla formula paesaggistica di Annibale Carracci e Domenichino. Le sue stampe, così come i dipinti e i disegni di vedute, sono caratterizzate da un approccio alla natura estremamente regolare e controllato, enfatizzando le linee orizzontali, verticali e i piani. Alla stregua dei suoi modelli bolognesi, Grimaldi usava spesso masse rocciose, o di terra, sporgenti, file di alberi posizionate strategicamente, e architetture posizionate nei piani per disporre il suo schema organizzativo. Etchings, about 1647/50, signed on plate at the bottom left. Only state. Magnificent proof, rich tone, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark "paschal lamb in double circle" (Heawood 2838), with thin margins, low oxidation, otherwise in excellent condition. Known as the Bolognese, Grimaldi was probably born in this city around 1606 and, in fact, the production of recent years was strongly influenced by his first contacts with the tradition of the Carracci. Grimaldi created over fifty etchings of landscapes strongly influenced by the formula landscape by Annibale Carracci and Domenichino. His prints, as well as paintings and drawings of views, are characterized by an approach to nature extremely smooth and controlled, emphasizing the horizontal, vertical and plans. As in the case of its models Bologna, Grimaldi often used rock mass, or land, jutting lines of trees positioned strategically positioned architectures and plans to have its organizational scheme.

        Amsterdam - Hugues Picart + Jean Boisseau, 1647.

      UITERST ZELDZAAM PROFIEL VAN AMSTERDAM?Profil de la renommee ville et port demstredam cappitalle des estats de Hollande?. Ets met droge naald gedrukt op 2 bladen, vervaardigd 1647 door Hugues Picart en uitgegeven door Jean Boisseau. Afm.: 24 x 73 cm (afbeelding), 27,5 x 73 (incl. tekst).De gravure komt voor in het Th??tre des Citez, een van de zeldzaamste Franse boeken met stadsgezichten. Hiervoor maakte meester graveur Hugues Picart tussen 1641 en 1648 achtentwintig grote profielen van Europese en Aziatische steden. Vanaf 1648 werden de bladen ook los verkocht.Bij het Amsterdamse stadsarchief ligt een exemplaar met rechtsonder de voorstelling de vermelding ?A Paris chez Jean Boisseau 1647?. Ons exemplaar vermeldt slechts ?A Paris Chez?, conform nr. 42 van A.E. d?Ailly?s ?Repertorium van de profilen der stad Amsterdam? (1953). D?Ailly noemt als vervaadigingsjaar ca. 1630. Het is echter waarschijnlijker dat het hier om een vanaf 1648 los uitgegeven blad gaat.We zien van links naar rechts het bolwerk Rijzenhoofd, de Peperwerf, de Montelbaans-, Zuiderkerks- en Regulierstorens, de Waag op de Nieuwmarkt, ?l?hotel Dieu?(Diaconie Oude Mannen- en Vrouwenhuis, thans Hermitage Amsterdam), de Waalse Kerk, de Scheierstoren, de Oudezijdskapel, de Oude Kerk, de Beurs, de Engelse Kerk, de Vismarkt, de Dam, de Waag op de Dam, het Stadshuis met stompe toren, de St. Jacobskapel, de Nieuwe Kerk, de Roodenpoorts- en Haringpakkerstorens (?lieu ou on encaque le hareng?), de Wester- en Noorderkerk, het Bickerstorentje, de Haarlemmerpoort, de zoutziederijen (?saline ou on blanchit le sel?, tegenwoordig is hier de zoutkeetsgracht) en het Blauwhoofd. Voor de stad de ?Rivierre de lye?met daaran twee tolhuizen en de stadsherberg (?maison publique?). Het Nieuwe Waalseiland (gebouwd in 1644) is nog niet aangegeven, het gebouw op de Herenmarkt is als Westindisch Huis aangeduid (het werd in 1657 als Herenlogement ingericht). Het Westindisch Pakhuis (gebouwd in 1641) komt ook nog niet voor op de prent.Van Jean Boisseau (actief tussen 1637-1658) weten we dat hij in 1631 werkte als ?meester verluchter? [dus iemand die handschriften met miniatuurschilderingen verfraaid] en vanaf 1635 als ?afsetter?: ?Enlumineur de cartes marines?/ ?Enlumineur du Roy pour les cartes geographiques ? [kleurder van kaarten dus].Prijs: ?2.950,-.

      1647 1647 - Samtidigt håndkoloreret kobberstik. Amsterdam 1647. 45,3 x 55,8 cm. * Janssonius' sjældne og smukke danmarkskort adskiller sig fra J. W. Blaeus ved at udformningen af Sjælland og Lolland/Falster er væsentlig mere korrekt, dette skyldes at Janssonius havde forbindelse med den danske kartograf Hans Lauremberg, som sandsynligvis har tegnet forlægget. Fyn og Jylland er gengivet efter Mercator med nogle forbedringer. I øverste højre hjørne titelkartouchen med rigsvåbnet og vildmændene. Dekoreret med kompasrose og skibe. Nørlund 61. Makholm 27.

A fine copy. ----Brunet III, 1662; Sotheran II, 11782; Honeyman 2217; Sotheby's Macclesfield Cat. V, 1374. - The very rare supplement in first edition to Mersenne's Cogitata physico-mathematica and Universae geometriae mixtaeque mathematicae synopsis, which form vols. 1 and 2 of the series published in 1644. This 3rd volume is a collection of essays concerning mechanics, pneumatics, hydrostatics, navigation, the techniques for establishing weights and measures and an examination of Aristarchus' heliocentric theory. As one of the most fascinating intellectual figures of the seventeenth century, Mersenne is well known for his relationships with many outstanding contemporary scholars as well as for his friendship with Descartes. Moreover, his own contributions to natural philosophy have an interest of their own. Mersenne worked on the main scientific questions debated in his time, such as the law of free fall, the principles of Galileo's mechanics, the law of refraction, the propagation of light, the vacuum problem, the hydrostatic paradox, and the Copernican hypothesis. Mersenne contributed to spread Galileo's writings in France as well as the ideas of thinkers such as Hobbes and Roberval. He dealt with almost every one of the mixed and pure mathematical sciences and first collected a number of treatises on geometry and mixed mathematics in the two editions of his Synopsis (Synopsis Mathematica, 1626; Universae geometriae synopsis, 1644). He composed several treatises on music (Traité de l'harmonie universelle, 1627; Questions harmoniques, 1634; Les preludes de l'harmonie universelle, 1634; Harmonie universelle, 1636; Harmonicorum libri XII, 1648) and optics (De Natura lucis, 1623; Opticae, 1644; L'Optique et la catoptrique, 1651). (Malet and Cozzoli, Mersenne and Mixed Mathematics, 2010, pp.1-8). Whereas the first two volumes of this series are fairly well represented in libraries, this third volume is of considerable rarity. Only one copy of this volume has appeared at auction in the past 30 years (the Macclesfield copy). Very Good.

Fine The Holy War is the third edition, with re-engraved title page (Pforzheimer). The Holy State is the second edition, enlarged. Based on Fuller's extensive reading in medieval sources, The Holy War is the first modern history of the crusades in English. In his judgment, the Papacy, in waging them, had spent European lives and wealth for nothing more than a faraway plot of land and a few relics. The Holy State and The Profane State, Fuller's celebrated studies in virtue and vice?"the most popular and characteristic of all his books" (ODNB)?provides rule of conduct, offering as exemplars a rich collection of model characters, along with short biographies of historical figures from Queen Elizabeth and Sir Francis Drake to St. Augustine and Joan of Arc. Allibone calls it, "Perhaps . . . the best of his works; and certainly [it] displays to better advantage than any his original and vigorous powers of thinking."

        Syntagma anatomicum. Locis plurimis auctum, emendatum, novisque iconibus diligenter exornatum.

      Padua: P. Frambotti, 1647. 2nd Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to (250 x 195 mm). [16], 274, [14] pp, including additional engraved title page depicting the anatomical theater at Padua, and 24 engraved copperplates (one outside pagination). Contemporary half tanned leather (extremities worn, corners of boards heavily scuffed), paper shelf label to spine. Internally only very little browned, faded dampstain to gutter of a few leaves. Extensive ink marginalia in a neat early hand throughout. Provenance: D.G.Seidel (signature on title-page); Library of the Count of Solms-Wildenfels (armorial bookplate inscribed "Comes de Solms" to front pastedown). Internally a fine, crisp copy. ----NLM/Krivatsy 12328; Waller 9931; Osler 4166; Choulant-Frank p.243; Roberts & Tomlinson, p.236-239. FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION (after the octavo first edition of 1641) with plates by Giovanni Georgi. Remarkably, the first edition was not illustrated, reflecting the reality that it was still possible to sell books on anatomy at this time without reference to images. Notably, the copperplates in this first illustrated edition bear little or no relationship to the powerfully influential woodcuts of Vesalius' Fabrica. In spite of its aesthetic limitations, Vesling's book found a ready market, and was reissued numerous times and translated into the main European languages including English. The plates were "intended for the commonest needs but are mostly original engravings and represent some organs of the human body more correctly than their predecessors. They were very popular at the time of their appearance and have been frequently re-engraved" (Choulant-Frank, p.243). This true first edition is scarcer than previosuly assumed, as most copies belong to a generally unsuspected counterfeit edition printed by the atlas publisher Johannes Janssonius of Amersterdam (F. Oyens, Jan Janssen as counterfeiter and pirate, Quaerendo vol. IX, 1979, p.351). In December 1632, Johann Wesling (1598-1649) was appointed professor of anatomy and surgery at Padua University. In 1638, he was appointed to the chair of botany, and left the chair of surgery but retained the chair of anatomy. Wesling was born in Minden, Westphalia. His Catholic family had probably left Vienna to escape religious persecution. (A. Porzionato et al., The Anatomical School of Padua. The Anatomical Record, Vol. 295, no. 6, 2012, p.908). Very Good.

        Epigrammatum. Editio Postrema, correctissima, & posthumis quibusdam adaucta.

      Amsterdam: Elzevier, 1647. 18mo (9,6 x 5,2 cm). (4), 212 pp. Full calf, covers with gilt filets, board edges with gilt-decorated elements, spine with 3 gilt fleurons, green morocco gilt-lettered label and 3 raised bands. With engraved title page and engraved portrait as frontispiece. John Owen [c.1560 - 1622] was a Welsh Latin poet. He was a headmaster of Henry VIII's school at Warwick for some years but then moved to London and became a professional poet. Altogether, he published 10 books of epigrams. His epigrams became almost overnight very popular throughout Europe. Dutch and German publishers were the first to gather the different books together into a single, unified publication. Because of his perfect mastery of the Latin language, his epigrams earned him an enduring reputation as the "British Martial", after the Roman poet Marcus Valerius Martialis. This is an interesting and unique copy. There are probably at least four editions of this 1647-Elzevier-edition. Willems states that there are three and our copy is certainly not mentioned by him. This edition also not in the Elsevier Heritage Collection. This is the third of the four Louis Elzevier-1647-editions that are mentioned by the STCN; curiously however, the portrait in our copy is not mentioned there by the STCN, as is also conform the collation-formula of that copy. The engraved title page, unsigned and as frontispiece an engraved portrait of Owen, also unsigned. With a headpiece and an endpiece. Fine antiquarian condition. Small damage to upper spine compartment, name on first flyleaf, otherwise fine. A charming, very small, miniature Elzevier-edition, vey nice binding, excellent copy of a rare edition.

        Watercolour of a wallflower and a double hyacinth, with inchworm moths, larvae and pupae].[Amsterdam, ca. 1700]. Watercolour drawing (38 x 29 cm) on extremely fine white parchment, said to be uterine lamb, showing a wallflower and a double hyacinth with two inchworm moths in the air (2 different species) and two inchworms and two pupae on the leaves and flowers. Framed.

      - Reitsma, Maria Sibylla Merian & dochters, ill. 110 (p. 147; a nearly identical drawing of the same wallflower specimen with 1 butterfly); Wettengl, Maria Sibylla Merian 1647-1717, kunstenares en natuuronderzoekster, no. 120 (ill. 44 on p. 85; a similar watercolour including the same wallflower specimen, with no insects). Characteristic original watercolour botanical drawing by Johanna Helena Herolt (1668-post 1721), the eldest daughter of Maria Sibylla Merian and Johann Andreas Graff. It shows a wallflower (Cheiranthus cheiri) and double hyacinth (Hyacinthus orientalis) with two inchworm moths (Geometriae) in the air, two inchworms and two pupae. She probably drew it in Amsterdam around 1700. Though she still remains in the shadow of her mother, she was a fine flower and insect artist in her own right and there is growing appreciation of her work. Her watercolours, more baroque than her mother's and often with brighter colours, radiate vigour and vivacity: the flowers, painted with intensity in every detail, really come to life. Reitsma, p. 135, notes that the prices for the flower watercolours increased with the number of insects, so the present watercolour must have been unusually expensive. Most of Herolt's work is numbered and the present watercolour is numbered "145"[?] on the back. The published catalogues rarely note the numbers, but we understand the highest number known is 164.Characteristic watercolour in fine state of preservation, with certificate of authenticity from Dr. S. Segal, Amsterdam. Herolt herself may have revised the upper part of the hyacinth.
