        Epigrammatum: Editio postrema, correctissima, & posthumis quibusdam adaucta

      Amsterodami, Apud Lud. Elzevirium, A. 1647. 24mo, 101 x 57 mms., pp. 212, engraved frontispiece portrait of Owen, engraved title-page, no engraved tail-piece on page 204, last line on p. 212 reading "se exercuit, peritia omnibus se approbarit," dated 3 Jan. 1629 and signed by Daniel Heinsius, finely bound in contemporary maroon sheepskin, spine ornately gilt in compartments, gilt border on covers, with floral ornament in each corner, all edges gilt, marbled end-papers. A fine and attractive copy. The Latin poet John Owen (Joannes Audoenus, 1563/4–1622?) studied at Winchester College, when he began to be noticed as a poet. He taught school for some years but commenced professional poet when he moved to London in the early 17th century, where his first three books of epigrams were printed in 1606. In all, he published ten books of epigrams, which were unusually popular and enthusiastically collected by the cognoscenti of the `7th century book world. This appears to be the fourth edition that the Elzevirs published with this date. Copinger, H .B. Elzevier Press 3449.

        Nova Virginiae Tabula

      Willem Blaeu, Amsterdam - Rare and early map of the Chesapeake Bay in beautiful original color, circa 1647. Features two architectural cartouches, a coat of arms, a Native American figure and a vignette showing the Powhatan King surrounded by his subjects. Denotes many place names including Jamestown and geographical and topographical elements. This map was the first and most well known derivation of the map by John Smith from 1612. Settlements are marked with a house and the parameters of Smith's explorations are marked with a cross. Originally published by Jodocus Hondius Jr. in 1618, this example is the second state, after the plate was purchased by Willem Jansz. Blaeu in 1629. Competition between the highly successful Dutch mapmaking families, Hondius and Blaeu helped propel the success and wide distribution of this map, inadvertently spreading the word of England's claim in the New World. Minor overall toning, light scattered foxing, folds to margins from previous framing. Full original margins. Willem Blaeu (1571-1638) was a prolific Dutch mapmaker who started one of the most famous map publishing firms of the 17th century. It was at this time that the Dutch controlled the map trade, and their ornate and beautiful maps had immense popularity. Blaeu was instrumental in driving this dominance in his lifetime, and this legacy was continued by his sons. Map. Engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 14.75" x 18 7/8".

        Le Miroir qui ne flate point. Dédié à la Reyne de la grande Bretaigne.

      1647 - Petit in-4 [145 x 192 mm], cartonnage moderne, dos de vélin, titre doré, [10] feuillets non chiffrés, 269 pages, 7 planches gravées sur cuivre par Nikolaus VAN DER HORST d'après Corneille GALLE. (Exemplaire court de marges ; la légende est rognée en pied de deux planches. Une lacune marginale avec petit manque de texte.) Natif de Toulouse, Pierre PUGET DE LA SERRE (1593-1665) suivit Marie de Médicis dans son exil à Bruxelles, puis à Londres où elle trouva refuge auprès du roi son gendre et de sa fille Henriette-Marie : c'est à cette dernière que le toulousain dédie ce Miroir destiné à inculquer aux souverains le souvenir constant de la mort et de la vanité de toutes choses ici-bas. L'ouvrage parut à Bruxelles en 1632 chez Godefroy Schoevaerts et connut de nombreuses réimpressions (la nôtre comprend encore l'achevé d'imprimer du 14 août 1632), ainsi qu'une traduction anglaise en 1639 (The Miror which flatters not, London). L'illustration se compose de trois gravures aux feuillets liminaires, soit le titre-frontispice et deux portraits, celui de Charles Ier d'Angleterre et celui de Henriette-Marie, ainsi que quatre planches narratives en tête de chaque chapitre. L'invention en est due au graveur anversois Corneille GALLE dit le vieux (1576-1650), fils de Philippe Galle, reconnu comme le plus talentueux de sa lignée, et la gravure à Nikolaus VAN DER HORST. Le Miroir qui ne flate point est le fruit d'une nouvelle collaboration entre l'auteur, l'illustrateur et le graveur, qui avaient travaillé ensemble une première fois aux Douces pensées de la mort (Bruxelles 1627), puis qui s'associèrent pour la réalisation d'un certain nombre d'ouvrages, parmi lesquels le Bréviaire des courtisans (Bruxelles, 1630) et les Délices de la mort (Bruxelles, 1631). Il découle de leur collaboration une adéquation entre le texte et l'image, au point que les édition postérieures ne purent les séparer ; la réédition de 1671 (Bruxelles, Philippe Vlengart) emploie seule des gravures différentes, signées L.S. (Louis Spirinx), mais qui sont des copies de celles de 1632. FUNCK, le Livre belge à gravure. Véronique MEYER, "Un auteur du XVIIe siècle et l'illustration de ses livres. Jean Puget de la Serre."

Ward came to New England in 1634 and was appointed minister at Agawam, now Ipswich, Massachusetts.

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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;s Courts at Westminster.": Bridgman, A Short View of Legal Bibliography 87.

Its southern limit is Sao Luis in northeastern Brazil, and it encompasses the entire mouth of the Amazon. Also on the map are Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana, and it also depicts the Guiana Highlands. A prominent feature on the map is the legendary Lake Parime, the object of searches by many explorers, not least among them Sir Walter Raleigh and Alexander von Humboldt. It was believed that on its shores would be found the city of Manoa, otherwise known as El Dorado.

The Holy War is the third edition, with re-engraved title page (Pforzheimer). The Holy State is the second edition, enlarged. Based on Fuller&#39;s extensive reading in medieval sources, The Holy War is the first modern history of the crusades in English.

The Holy State and The Profane State, Fuller&#39;s celebrated studies in virtue and vice&#151;"the most popular and characteristic of all his books" (ODNB)&#151;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.

        BIATHANATOS. A Declaration of that Paradoxe, or Thesis, that Self-Homicide is not so Naturally Sinne, that it may never be otherwise. Wherein the nature, and extent of all those Lawes, which seeme to be violated by this Act, are diligently surveyed

      London:: John Dawson,, [1647].. First Edition. 4to, pp. [xviii], 218. Bound in contemporary full calf with the initial blank, rebacked and rubbed along the hinges, front hinge tender, some staining to the title-page, a very good copy of the first issue. Keynes 48; Wing D1859. The earliest of Donne&#39;s controversial writings. Donne was famously of a neurotic temperament and frankly admits his fascination for the act of suicide in his Preface &#39;...whensoever any affliction assailes me, mee thinks I have the keyes of my prison in mine owne hand, and no remedy presentes it selfe so soone to my heart, as mine own sword.&#39; He was nonetheless reluctant to publish his doubts about the absolute sinfulness of suicide and only circulated the Biathanatos among friends in manuscript. He sent a copy to Sir Edward Herbert, and, in 1619, another to Sir Robert Karre, writing: &#39;It was written by me many years since; and because it is upon a misinterpretable subject, I have always gone so near suppressing it, nor many eyes to read it: onely to some particular friends in both Universities, then when I writ it, I did communicate it: And I remember, I had this answer, That certainly, there was a false thread in it, but not easily found: Keep it, I pray, with the same jealousie; let any that your discretion admits to the sight of it, know the date of it; and that it is a Book written by Jack Donne, and not by D. Donne: Reserve it for me, if I live, and if I die, I only forbid it the Presse, and the Fire: publish it not, but burn it not; and between those, do what you will with it&#39; (cited by Keynes). It was published posthumously by John Donne the younger, and dedicated to Lord Herbert&#39;s son Phillip.

        Il fusto di una colonna

      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.

Den sjældne originaludgave af det første danske Herbarium, der som titelbladet angiver både skulle tjene som en botanik, men også som en lægebog. Bogen er et af 16oo-tallets finest udstyrede danske værker. I et brev dateret 1645 opfordrer Christian IV Collegium Medicum til at forfatte et værk, som skulle indeholde allehånde råd mod sygdomme, og oplysning om, hvor folk kunne finde urterne således at de uden de store omkostninger kunne kurere sig selv når sygdom opstod. Kollegiet overdrog opgaven hermed til Simon Paulli. En af grundene til, at bogen kom i et så fint udstyr er, at forlæggeren Balthasar Moret fra Plantin-trykkeriet i Antwerpen overlod de af ham ejede botaniske træsnit, som tidligere havde været anvendt i Tabermontanus' værker, til bogens illustrationsdel.

        Africæ nova descriptio

      Amsterdam: Joan Blaeu, [circa 1647]. Copper-engraved map, with original colour. Third state (of 3). 16 1/2 x 22 1/2 inches. A great 17th-century Dutch map: "a cornerstone, folio-size map of Africa" (Betz) Of all the Amsterdam map publishers, the Blaeus were the most attentive to their public. The constantly growing index of maps and the perpetually high quality of presentation through the 65 years or so of operation suggest a strong understanding of and commitment to a large, educated audience. Both father and son were official mapmakers to the Dutch East India Company, which to a large degree funded the Dutch Golden Age. Their work is one of the emblems of that fascinating era. The map of Africa has the panels of city views and costumed natives that are a feature of Blaeu maps. The content of the map itself is essentially a reduced copy of Willem Blaeu&#39;s 1608 wall map. The first issue of the present map was published in 1617, and a second in 1626. The present third issue appeared in about 1647 and remained in print for much of the 17th century. Like all European maps of Africa at that time, Northern Africa and the boundaries of the continent are portrayed fairly well, while the interior of sub-Saharan Africa is very vague, largely based on rumor, speculation and some timid excursions up the larger rivers: the Niger, the Congo and the Zambesi. Most of the more credible information about the interior came from Leo Africanus&#39; History and Description of Africa first published in 1550, but even this is not geographically definitive. The rest came from the oral testimony of merchants who gathered information from Arabic and black Africans at coastal forts and market-places. Consequently, European mapmakers of African maps poured from the void into the void, borrowing from each other&#39;s lack of knowledge. There developed a canon of traditional features that passed from mapmaker to mapmaker. Blaeu respects these: including the confluence of the Niger and Nile, the side by side companion lakes that are sources for the Nile, and many imaginary lakes, rivers and mountain ranges. The town views given in the top panel are Tangier, Ceuta, Algiers, Tunis, Alexandria, Cairo, Mozambique (its island), St. George Elmina (El Mina, the most infamous depot on the African side of the Atlantic slave trade. The Dutch took it from the Portuguese in 1637) and Canaria in the Canary Islands. The side panels depict examples of the African people in native garb from Egypt to the Cape of Good Hope.

Legatura in tutta pelle coeva, dorso a nervi (da restaurare), aloni alle prime ed ultime pagine, (lacuna al margine inferiore di una pagina), ma in discreto stato di conservazione. ***.
