        CORONA E PALMA MILITARE DI ARTIGLIERA, ET FORTIFICATIONI [etc.].

      1647In Venetia [Venise], Presso Antonio Bariletti, 1647. In folio (249 X 355) demi-vélin ivoire, plats de carton souple (reliure de l'époque); (4) ff. (dont titre orné d'une grande vignette gravée), 60 ff.. Ex-libris «DR» [Désiré Ruggieri] dessiné et gravé par Baticle collé sur le premier contreplat. UN RARE ET IMPORTANT TRAITÉ D'ARTILLERIE DE LA FIN DU XVIe SIÈCLE. L'ouvrage est conçu sous la forme d'un jeu de 69 questions-réponses entre deux interlocuteurs (ff. 1 à 44), suivi d'une série d'«instructions» ou «avvertimento» (ff. 45 à 58). Ces dialogues évoquent certaines idées défendues par des théoriciens de l'art militaire, pour mieux les dénigrer ensuite sur le ton de la moquerie, au profit de préceptes avancés par l'auteur. Ces dialogues et instructions concernent principalement l'artillerie, les fortifications ainsi que les FEUX D'ARTIFICES. Il s'agit de la quatrième édition, les précédentes ayant été imprimées en 1598, 1602 et 1618, toutes à Venise. Alessandro CAPOBIANCO, originaire de Vicence, en Vénétie, était capitaine des artilleurs de la ville de Crema, en Lombardie. Ce FAMEUX TRAITÉ, qui contient toutes les connaissances acquises au XVIe siècle sur la pratique de l'artillerie, dédié par l'auteur à Lunardo Rossetti, capitaine des bombardiers de Venise, est divisé en CINQ PARTIES: 1): "Del Capitano sopra l'artiglieria è esaminato il bombardiero". (Du capitaine sur l'artillerie et en particulier du bombardier). 2) : "Delle provisioni nelle fattioni di mare con altri avvertimenti" (Du matériel utilisé pour les manoeuvres en mer avec d'autres instructions). 3) : "Delle invenzioni de fuochi artificiali per feste e giuoco" (Des feux d'artifices pour les fêtes et les jeux). 4): "Della cognizione per misurare distanze" (De la connaissance de la mesure des distances). 5): "Breve Ragionamento sopra la fortificazione" (Brefs raisonnements sur les fortifications). 96 FIGURES SUR BOIS dans le texte, certaines de grand format, représentant des canons, du matériel militaire, des machines de guerre, des feux d'artifices, plans de fortifications, vue de ville, etc., et une grande vignette de titre représentant l'auteur, un fusil à la main, devant une table sur laquelle reposent un petit canon, une équerre, un compas, un plan de fortification, deux grandes plumes et une couronne. Le cadre de cette illustration est composé de matériel militaire. EXEMPLAIRE TRÈS PUR relié sur brochure, imprimé sur beau vergé à la forme, avec ses grandes marges d'origine conservées. Il provient de la BIBLIOTHÈQUE de Désiré-François RUGGIERI (1818-1885), qui fut l'artificier et le protégé de Napoléon III. Grand érudit, bibliophile, il fut également l'élève d'Ingres avant de succéder à son père Claude-Fortuné RUGGIERI, et de reprendre la célèbre entreprise familiale de feux d'artifices. (Cockle, "Bibliography of English military books up to 1642 and of contemporary foreign works", n°673 - Riccardi, "Biblioteca matematica italiana dalla origine della stampa ai primi anni del secolo XIX", I, 232 pour l'édition de 1598 - Graesse, "Trésor de livres rares et précieux", II, 43, pour l'édition de 1598).

        The Character of a London-Diurnalll: With Several Select Poems: By the Same Author

      [London:] Printed in the Year, 1647, 1647. Third edition, one of at least seven editions published in 1647; this one contains 18 poems and has the running head "Poems" on page 7. Wing C-4663; Hayward 92 (also an edition of 1647); NCBEL I, 1304. Edges of the title slightly browned; fine copy.. Octavo, modern red full morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, gilt lozenge on the upper and lower boards, gilt lettering, a.e.g. The scarce first book John Cleveland (1613-1658) - "the metaphysical reductio ad absurdum" (Hayward) - one of the most popular poets of his era. It went through several editions beginning in 1644. The 18 poems are preceded by Cleveland's acerbic essay on the character of newspapers, then in their infancy: "A Diurnall is a puny Chronicle, scarce pin-feathered with the wings of time: It is a historie in Sippets; the English Iliads in a nut-shell; the Apocryphall Parliaments book of Maccabees in single sheets." Cleveland mocks the pseudonyms used by writers, accuses them of scheming and spreading lies, and compares them to Don Quixote: "Thus the Quixotes of this Age fight with the Windmill of their own heads; quell Monsters of their own creation, make plots, and then discover them . . ." Cleveland's essay on newspapers incited a pamphlet war that continued for a few years. Bookplate of Robert S. Pirie on the front free endpaper.

Relié en plein vélin souple de l'époque, dos lisse, petits calculs manuscrits anciennement annotés à la plume sur les plats. Pâle mouillure dans l'angle inférieur. TROISIEME EDITION DE CE TRES RARE OUVRAGE D'ASTRONOMIE REDIGE AU XVI SIECLE POUR CATHERINE DE PARTHENAY. François Viète quitte le barreau pour devenir le tuteur de Catherine de Parthenay. C'est l'époque où il s'intéresse particulièrement à l'astronomie, et où il rédige son premier ouvrage scientifique, qu'il donne en lecture à son élève. François Viète, the greatest French mathematician of the sixteenth century. Vieta became a key figure in its development and his influence can be seen on Descartes, on Harriot, and even on Newton and Leibniz. All his books were published privately at his own expense for distribution to his friends and are therefore notably rare. Le présent ouvrage est divisé en trois parties où Viète décrit les pays du monde et Elemens d'astronomie, des pp. 145 à 172, où il traite des étoiles et des planètes. Viète se finançait lui-même et il ne faisait imprimer ses écrits qu'à un très petit nombre d'exemplaires qu'il distribuait à ses amis. Cela explique la rareté de ses écrits. Il est considéré comme le principal précurseur de l'algèbre. La présente édition est la plus rare de cet ouvrage. Exemplaire très pur de cet ouvrage d'astronomie rare et recherché, conservé dans son vélin souple de l'époque. DSB 14, pp. 18-25 ; P.M.M., 103. ***First edition, printed in Mexico City, of one of the rarest and the most valuable Mexican grammars.

        De rerum natura libri sex

      Florence, Amato Massa, 1647. In-4, (8), 268, (4), 269-680 pages, vélin souple de l'époque (petit accroc au milieu du dos) [les deux derniers feuillets des pièces préliminaires, dont un feuillet blanc, furent reliées entre les deuxième et troisième parties]. Early illustrated work on Egyptian funeral customs, mummies and art of embalming. Peu courante première édition procurée par Giovanni Nardi du De rerum natura de Lucrèce avec un intéressant et particulièrement précoce appendice sur les funérailles des égyptiens, autrement dit sur les momies. Le grand livre de Kircher sur les égyptiens ne paraîtra que 5 ans plus tard, en 1652. "The poem's medical authority lasted in Italy until well into the seventeenth century, when one published commentator on the DRN was in fact a physician, the Florentine Giovanni Nardi. His Paraphrastica explanatio of 1647, an ambitious work ignored, or worse, by later Lucretian exegetes, examines the text from the point of view of content rather than form; and in his own scientific treatises Nardi not infrequently resorts to Lucretian quotations in the course of scientific demonstrations' (Cambridge Companion to Lucretius, pages 217-218). Déchirure à la page 457/458 sans manque, toutefois bel exemplaire en condition d'origine.

        De monstris et monstrosis, quam mirabilis, bonus et iustus, in mundo administrando, sit Deus, monstrantibus.

      Haenlin & Wagner, 1647. In 16° (160x95); pagg. (16), 636, (52). Vignetta sul frontespizio inciso da W. Kilian. Dedica al duca di Baviera Massimiliano Enrico. Pergamena settecentesca muta con unghie. Rara prima edizione di questa rara opera, la più interessante e ricercata fra le tre scritte dal gesuita tedesco Georg Stengel (Augsburg 1585 - Ingolstadt 1651): tratta di mostri fantastici, mostruosità reali o difetti fisici gravi, meraviglie naturali; a questo riguardo l'autore argomenta le cause probabili e di quale parte abbia il demonio in queste espressioni naturali e nelle vicende umane. Manca alle bibliografie esoteriche. Ottimo esemplare, che presenta una cerniera un po' difettata ed una nota di possesso al frontespizio tagliata con mancanza, motivo per cui questo è rimontato su carta di supporto.

        Mercurius Batavus sive Epistolarum libri V. Opus stili, & Oratoriae studiosis apprime utile.

      Amsterdam, Janssonius, 1647. - 12mo (13 : 6.5 cm). (16, including engraved title), 540, (16) and (4 blank) p. A tiny early note on rear pastedown reading ?Mai: 11 lig. 5. den:? suggests that the book was purchased at eleven maiores (of whatever currency), and that the binding (ligatura) did cost five denarii. As Hungary was the only country where denarii were still struck throughout the 17th century, the binding seems to have been executed there. The volume remained in the region. There are two subsequent ownership inscriptions from Kronstadt (Brasso in Transylvania) on title-page: the superior judge Johann Jakob Mylius (died in 1832) and the preacher Johann Friedrich Hiemesch (1793-1869). - The text is a classic first published in four books in 1633, a fifth was added from 1642 onwards and a sixth around 1653. The present edition has no letterpress title and the dedication year is misprinted 1663 for 1643. The preliminaries match the copy digitized by the Bavarian State Library. - Vellum dust soiled, free front endpaper glued to pastedown, internally fresh. Contemporary, probably Hungarian vellum binding with blind-stamped fillets and blue edges gauffered in gilt with a star pattern. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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."

        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.

        VII Opera Misericordiae piis animis dicat Matthias Bolzetta de Cadorinis.

      1647. Patavii, Matthias Bolzetta De Cadorinis, 1647. Sette incisioni in rame più una di frontespizio. Rarissima collezione - completa - tratta da originali di Tiziano (perduti), indicato in lastra come autore delle opere da cui sono tratte le calcografie. Ogni scena, incisa in rame all'acquaforte, misura mm 154x120 circa, più ampi margini bianchi (mm. 320x215 i fogli). Maria Agnese Chiari nel catalogo "Incisioni da Tiziano", Venezia, 1982 attribuisce la raccolta a Hans Heinrich Schweitzer, anche se in due lastre a noi risulta leggibile la firma "Snizer f." e "Gio. Snizer f.". Anche il Museo Correr di Venezia - nel cui catalogo on - line siamo riusciti a rintracciare solo 3 delle 8 incisioni - le attribuisce a Schweitzer. A proposito di queste immagini cfr. l'asta Sotheby's "Arts of Europe", Londra, 3 dicembre 2013, lotto 138 (un boccale d'argento del Seicento) nella cui descrizione sono menzionate queste incisioni: "The barrel of the tankard is engraved with a continuous scene which skillfully combines at least two different images which are after lost works by Titian. The Titian - derived images: The clothing of the poor and part of the feeding scene, which straddle the tankard's handle are found with the same Latin inscription, in a 1647 Paduan publication by Mathias Bolzetta de Cadorinis, VII opera misericordiae piis animis dicat. A contemporary Swiss artist Hans Heinrich Schweitzer may have been the engraver of the images in the 1647 publication. See: Patricia Fortini Brown, Private lives in Renaissance Venice, Princeton, 2004, p. 211". Ottime condizioni di conservazione.

Tear in top left margin not affecting text, small portion of seal missing. In a custom red morocco-backed folding-box. Pen and ink on one parchment membrane (210 x 290 mm), parchment tag with armorial wax seal, three witness signatures on the dorse, including the poet's brother Dudley Lovelace. Rare Signature of Richard Lovelace. Extremely rare example of the signature of cavalier poet Richard Lovelace (1617-1657) - the only known privately owned example of his hand. Save for his "To Althea, from Prison", of which contemporary manuscript copies are known, Lovelace's work achieved limited popularity in his time and there is a corresponding derth of manuscript material in his hand. Only one complete manuscript in Lovelace's hand - a petition to the House of Commons - is known to exist. His signature appears on a series of 13 documents, of which this is one, relating to land transactions in Kent. CELM LoR 63.

        Christ Dying and Drawing Sinners to Himselfe

      London. 1st Edition. Very Good. FIRST EDITION (1647) IN CONTEMPORARY BINDING OF AN IMPORTANT WORK IN THE THEOLOGY OF SAMUEL RUTHERFORD. Rutherford's Christ Dying and Drawing Sinners to Himselfe was published in 1647, the last year he served in the London Assembly. "In th[o]se four years he participated fully in the Assembly's debates over church government and published a number of major works … Rutherford's main responsibility in London was to advance the presbyterian cause … In England, he earned a place in one of Milton's sonnets as a prime defender of Scottish presbyterianism (DNB)." "Rutherford's writings during the London years provide a significant commentary of the theology of the Westminster Confession and Catechisms. In Christ Dying and Drawing Sinners to Himselfe Rutherford elaborately scrutinizes the Antinomian notion that the law has no obligation for the Christian" (Dictionary of Scottish Church History and Theology). For Rutherford and the Puritans, "the stress [was] upon the individual's experience of faith. Later in Christ Dying, Rutherford seems to make just this point" (Guy M. Richard, in The Supremacy of God in the Theology of Samuel Rutherford). First edition, with handwritten ownership details of William Bernard Sears, master wood carver, on rear endpapers. London: printed by J[ohn]. D[awson]. for Andrew Crooke at the Green-Dragon in Pauls Church-yard, 1647. Small quarto (144x185mm), contemporary full calf. [38] 1-598 + errata. Owner signature on title.

Burn holes on B2, C2-D1, going through a couple of words on each page), one gathering (kkk) with uniform browning; ggg2 and ggg3 with marginal tear (affecting a few words on ggg2); some margins with light dampstaining.

        Relaçam verdadeira do alevantamento de Napoles, e de Sicilia, com a copia dos capitulos acordados entre o Visorey, & Povo de Napoles.

      (Lisbon), [Colophon] por D.[omingos] Lopes Roza, 1647?. - 4°, later plain grey wrappers (minor soiling), old manuscript title on front cover, text-block edges rouged. Caption title. Four-line woodcut initial. A bit rubbed on final page, but overall in very good condition. Engraved bookplate of Victor d'Avila Perez. (6 ll.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this rare account of a 1647 rebellion in Naples led by Masaniello (Tommaso Aniello), a fisherman, against the rule of Philip IV of Spain. The rebellion briefly created an independent Neapolitan republic, which lasted only until 1648 but remains a celebrated moment in the history of Naples. Not surprisingly, few if any accounts of this rebellion were printed in Spanish dominions. This one appeared in Portugal, which had declared its independence of Spanish rule in 1640 and was still at war with Spain. The relevance of all this for the Portuguese war of independence is summed up on f. A4v.This @Relaçam begins with a recap of the history of Naples and Sicily under French and Spanish rule (including the Sicilian Vespers), briefly describes the recent rebellion in Sicily (ff. A1v-A2r), then moves on to a detailed account of the rebellion in Naples (ff. A2r-A4v). The central characters are Masaniello and the viceroy of Naples, Rodrigo Ponce de León, fourth Duke of Arcos, but the names and actions of many others are also included. On ff. A4v-A6v is the full text of the agreement between the viceroy and the people of Naples, dated Naples July 12, 1647. In it the viceroy grants Neapolitans limited self-government, promises restrictions on taxes, and exempts them from the crime of @lèse majesté. Masaniello and his companions promise to march to the church of Sta. Maria de Constantinopola and lay down their arms.In the 1640s, Spain was dealing with rebellions in Portugal, the Netherlands, and Catalonia, and was embroiled in the Thirty Years' War. In Sicily and Naples (Europe's second-largest city), the hefty taxes imposed to raise money for war expenses had caused much unrest.*** Arouca R395. @Exposição bibliografica da Restauração 1229.

        Annales des choses plus mémorables arrivées tant en Angleterre qu'ailleurs, sous les règnes de Henry VIII, Edovard VI & Marie

      1647 - de (VIII), 500, (2) pp. Paris, P. Rocolet, 1647, in-4, de (VIII), 500, (2) pp., plein vélin de l'époque, titre en manuscrit sur le dos, étui moderne, Première édition en français, traduite de l'anglais par le sieur de Loigny. La page de titre porte la signature de François de La Rochefoucauld, auteur célèbre des 'Maximes' (1665), dont Voltaire dira "C'est un des ouvrages qui contribuèrent le plus à former le goût de la nation, et à lui donner un esprit de justesse et de précision. Il accoutuma à penser et à renfermer des pensées dans un tour vif, précis et délicat." Inspiré par les oeuvres de son ami William Camden, surtout par la première partie de son histoire du règne d'Elisabeth 1er, et déçu par les ouvrages existants sur le sujet, Godwin décida d'écrire sa propre histoire du 16e siècle en Angleterre : "Calling for a complete national history based on the sort of erudition that had marked 'Britannia' [par Camden], he remarked that 'our antiquaries may justly be taxed of sloth'" (ODNB). Bel exemplaire, vélin légèrement fatigué par places. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        GLI ARTIFICIOSI E CURIOSI MOTI SPIRITALI DI HERONE

      Bologna: Carlo Zenero, 1647. Second Edition in Italian n. Following the first edition of 1589, this is the second (and only obtainable early) edition in Italian of one of the most popular books on ancient technology of the Renaissance, highlighted with fascinating woodcuts of inventions that include the first steam-powered engine. "Pneumatics," as this book is commonly known, is the work of the first century Greek mathematician Hero (or Heron) of Alexandria, who here provides detailed instructions for building machines and practical scientific instruments to demonstrate his ideas. As Brittanica observes, the work "describes a menagerie of mechanical devices, or "toys": singing birds, puppets, coin-operated machines, a fire engine, a water organ, and his most famous invention, the aeolipile . . . . This last device consists of a sphere mounted on a boiler by an axial shaft with two canted nozzles that produce a rotary motion as steam escapes." Like other Greek classics, "Pneumatics" arrived in Europe in the 15th century via Constantinople the only major city of the ancient world to survive to the Middle Ages without being conquered and sacked. Its libraries, with their holdings of ancient GReek manuscripts, avoided the fate of other institutions in Alexandria and elsewhere. Hero's works were among those brought to Italy by the great Greek scholar Cardinal Basilios Bessarion (1403-72), who donated his substantial library to the Republic of Venice, the most stable Italian city-state, where it became the foundation of the Library of Saint Mark's. Aldus Manutius began printing Greek classics in the 1490s, but Hero did not make it into print until 1575, when Federico Commandino's Latin translation of "Pneumatics" was published in Urbino and, according to scholar James Bradburne, "the explosion of interest in Hero';s 'Pneumatics' begins in earnest. . . . Courts thirsty for innovation vied with one another in creating spectacles, pageants and gardens filled with hydraulic and mechanical wonders." While this book is not remarkably rare in one early edition or another, contemporary copies as inviting as the present one seldom appear in the marketplace.. 216 x 152 mm. (8 1/2 x 6"). 4 p.l., 103 pp., [4] leaves.Edited and translated into Italian by Giambattista Aleotti. Second Edition in Italian. Contemporary limp vellum, flat spine with ink titling, lower cover neatly ruled in ink with an enclosed initial "P" and the words "Scudi uno." Engraved armorial device on title page and 89 woodcut figures in the text. Title page with early inscription obscured by ink scribbles, occasional neat annotations in an early hand, pencil drawing of an heraldic device on rear free endpaper. Riccardi I, 21; Mortimer Italian 230, note; Brunet III, 129; Graesse III, 258. Vellum lightly soiled, two-inch tear to front pastedown, three leaves with a couple of small ink spots to text (nothing obscured), other trivial imperfections, but a fine copy--the text clean, fresh, and rather bright, and in a well-preserved binding.

        Arte de la lengua moxa, con su vocabulario, y cathecismo.

      The first printed grammar, dictionary, and catechism in the language of the Moxo Indians of the lowlands of south-central Beni, a region of Bolivia. The language is a member of the Arawakan family. Marbán (1647-1713), a native of Spain, was admitted to Society of Jesus in 1663 and sent to Peru in 1675, there to spend rest of his life among the Moxo Indians of Upper Peru (now Bolivia). 1701 is often given as the date of publication of this work, but since the last license to print is dated the middle of December, 1701, and the caption title of the "Cartilla, y doctrina cristina" is 1702, a publication date of 1701 is impossible.The notably variable and uneven printing here, sometimes very light and sometimes very dark, is typical of Peruvian printing's low-grade state in this era. Representing perhaps a particularly bad day, a compositor who had missed a phrase on p. 83 => inserted it in tiny type along the outer margin!

        Fleta, Seu Commentarius Juris Anglicani Sic Nuncupatus, Sub Edwardo.

      1647 - First Printing of Selden's Edition of Fleta and His Ad Fletam Dissertatio Selden, John [1584-1645], Editor. Fleta, Seu Commentarius Juris Anglicani Sic Nuncupatus, Sub Edwardo Rege Primo Seu Circa Annos ab Hinc CCCXL. Ab Anonymo Conscriptus, Atque e Codice Veteri, Autore Ipso Aliquantulum Recentiori, Nunc Primum Typis Editus. Accedit Tractatulus Vetus de Agendi Excipiendique; Formulis Gallicanus, Fet-Assavoir Dictus. Subjungitur Etiam Joan. Seldeni ad Fletam Dissertatio Historica. London: Typis M.F. Prostant Apud Guil. Lee, & Dan. Pakeman, 1647. [8], 64, 63-452, [2], 453-553, [3] pp. Pagination irregular. Complete. Quarto (8-1/2" x 6-1/2"). Handsome period-style quarter calf over cloth, lettering piece, blind ornaments and gilt-ruled raised bands to spine. Negligible light rubbing to boards, some fading to spine. Title page printed in red and black. Moderate toning to text, occasional faint dampspotting, faint dampstaining to margins in a few places, internally clean. A very nice copy. * First edition. The work by an anonymous author describes the practice of the courts, the forms of writs and an explanation of law terms as they existed during the reign of Edward I. Selden brought this ancient treatise to the public's attention and was instrumental in its publication. While Bracton earns the highest praise as the father of legal learning, Fleta earns a share of it for the illustrations he offered to some of the obscurities found in Bracton. Selden's appended dissertation (pp.453-553) contains many interesting observations about Bracton, Britton, Fleta, and Thornton "and shows what use was made of the Imperial law in England whilst the Romans governed here, at what time it was introduced into this nation, what use was formerly made of it, how long it continued, and when the use of it totally ceased in the King's Courts at Westminster": Bridgman, A Short View of Legal Bibliography 87. Sowerby, Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson 1647. English Short-Title Catalogue R15006. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
