        Las Obras en verso

      Diego Díaz de la Carrera, Madrid 1648 - Primera edición de esta importante obra de 1648 en Madrid. Precede al título la dedicatoria a Felipe IV. Portada grabada calcográfica: "Iuan Noort f." Texto con apostillas marginales y doble filete. Errores de paginación, de la p. 301 pasa a la 304 y de la 351 a la 362. Francisco de Borja y Aragón (1581-1658) Príncipe de Esquilache por su matrimonio, nieto de San Francisco de Borja, fue militar y político. Virrey del Perú donde fundó varios colegios y se preocupó en mejorar las explotaciones mineras. A su regreso a la España se dedicó a escribir poesía, alejado en general del culteranismo de la época. En este libro, publicado cuan él aún vivía, se recogen sus sonetos, canciones, décimas, coplas con vuletas, versos divinos y demás metro. Sus Obras en verso constituyen uno de los proyectos laureados más elaborados y conscientes de la primera mitad del XVII. Es uno de los pocos cancioneros barrocos españoles curados y editados por su propio autor, además del primer volumen de poesía dado a la imprenta por un miembro de la alta aristocracia castellana. En él, el príncipe de Esquilache recrea e instrumentaliza su estrecha relación con destacados miembros de la república barroca de las letras (desde Lope de Vega a los Argensola o los condes de Lemos), individualiza su posición con respecto a la polémica gongorina.

Obra HISTÓRIA DE VARÕES ILUSTRES DO APELIDO TÁVORA foi publicada póstuma pelo filho do autor, baseada em documentos e cartórios privados, com o objetivo de provar a importância dos Távoras como parentes da Casa Real portuguesa.

Na composição desta obra teve parte D. Francisco Manuel de Mello, como se colige do que diz o Cavalheiro de Oliveira nas suas Memórias de Portugal, tomo II, pag. 349. É pela maior parte formada de cópias fielmente trasladadas de originais não menos por sua matéria importantes, que por seu estilo e pura linguagem, por isso que escriptos sobre negócios públicos e gravíssimos por pessoas da maior autoridade, e existentes quasietodas na idade mais lustrosa das letras portuguezas». É estimada, e pouco vulgar. Seu preço tem sido variavel; sei de dois exemplares com defeito, que se venderam a 1:200 réis: em bom estado de conservação podem valer 1:800 réis, e talvez mais. O Abade Barbosa, por um dos seus inevitáveis descuidos, tendo dado esta obra no tomo I em nome do referido auctor, novamente a reproduz no tomo III, attribuindo-a a Ruy Lourenço de Távora, que parece não ter tido parte alguma em sua composição, e ser méro publicador do que o seu pai deixara escrito.'

The Company of Stationers took strong exception, as did the successors of Richard Barker, Hills and Field, who claimed exclusive rights to Bible printing. The printing of Bibles at length was a privilege conceded to one William Bentley; but he was opposed by Hills and Field; and a paper war arose, in which they mutually recriminated on each other, with equal truth..." - See The Pearl Bibles And Six Thousand Errata by Isaac Disraeli .

The second work records Tycho's observations of the great comet of 1577, and includes a description of his geoheliocentric theory of the universe. Tycho's observations of the supernova and comet led him to abandon the Ptolemaic concept of heavenly spheres and to deny the Aristotelian hypothesis that nothing new could be born in the heavens"..

        Eikon Basilike (Greek letter). The Pourtraicture of His Sacred Majestie in His Solitudes and Sufferings.

      [London: Printed by John Grismond for Richard Royston] 1648 (i.e. 1649) . First Edition, second issue Small 8vo, A4, (A3 mis-signed A4), B-S8, lacking last blank, lacking the folding frontispiece, 4-page Als from Edward Almack to Geo. C. Williamson tipped in at end and on a front fly a long note by Williamson recording that this copy was foundin an old house in Guildford, black morocco, gilt fillet borders, centre panel in gilt and blind with floral cornerpieces, spine with raised bands, gilt flowers in compartments, by Riviere signed on front turn-in, neatly rehinged, edges stained black, probably by the original binder. An oft-reprinted work, of which Madan lists 51 issues and editions appearing in 1648 and 1649, many of them by printers and publishers being hounded by the authorities and frequently arrested. The bibliography of the early issues is complicated; Edward Almack was the first to investigate them and he gave the present issue (without the names in the imprint) priority. He also claimed that the folding frontispiece was not issued with this edition, and the Pforzheimer Catalogue follows him in this - "... the engraved frontispiece by William Marshall which was intended for several of the later editions". Madan finds otherwise; identifying this copy as first edition, second issue (it has the scambled pagination in sig. G) and stating that the engraved portrait should be present, although I note that, of the 11 copies he lists as known to him, no less than 4 are described as without the portrait. I have to admit however, that ideally, rare though all early issues undoubtedly are, this one should perhaps have the portrait to be complete.

        [Greek title] Eikon Basilike [King's Book]. The Pourtracture of His Sacred Majestie in his Solitudes and Sufferings.

      [London: Printed by William Dugard] 1648.. 12mo, (iv), 187, (1) pp. Folding emblematic frontispiece showing Charles kneeling, subtly laid down, browning to edges of a few pages. Recent full calf, blind stamped decoration to corners and spine, gilt title, binder's ticket to rear paste down. First appearing days after Charles I's execution, this famous collection of what were purportedly the King's thoughts and meditations became a publishing sensation, with some 60 editions appearing in Britain and Ireland alone in one year. The question of authorship was for centuries hotly debated, although it now seems likely it was the work of Bishop Gauden, adapting and adding to pages composed by Charles.

Ink signature of Charles Greene on title- page, signature of R.J. Cary MD, 1913 inside front cover. Very good. . FIRST COLLECTED EDITION of a copy heavily read by an early physician/owner. The ffep. has an extensive ms. list of topics and where they are located in the text. On the title-page is a contemporary ms. biographical note of van Helmont. Marginalia throughout the text makes references to urinalysis, and to Paracelsus. Van Helmont was an early modern period Flemish chemist, physiologist, and physician. He worked during the years just after Paracelsus and iatrochemistry, and is sometimes considered to be “the founder of pneumatic chemistry”. ¶ “‘The Birth of Medicine’, edited posthumously by the author’s son, is our chief source for the discoveries of Helmont with regard to the chemical nature of living processes. … Many of Helmont’s general principles were derived from those of his master, Paracelsus… Life Paracelsus he did not confine his studies to specific limited fields; his outlook was universal. He sought a cosmological system and a unified view of natural science which would embrace all phenomena. His metaphysics and religion led him to abandon scholastic forms of thinking, and thence, by abjuring theoretical speculation, he was brought to regard experiment and empiricism as the main paths to knowledge. Although he was inclined to mysticism, he nevertheless became a remarkable scientific investigator and made significant contributions to the progress of chemistry and medicine.” [Printing and the Mind of Man 135]. ¶ Van Helmont is remembered today largely for his ideas on spontaneous generation, his 5-year tree experiment, and his introduction of the word “gas” (from the Greek word chaos) into the vocabulary of scientists. His works were collected and edited by his son Franciscus Mercurius van Helmont and published by Lodewijk Elzevir in Amsterdam as Ortus medicinae, vel opera et opuscula omnia in 1648. Ortus medicinae was based on, but not restricted to, the material of Dageraad ofte Nieuwe Opkomst der Geneeskunst (“Daybreak, or the New Rise of Medicine”), which was published in 1644 in Van Helmont’s native Dutch. Helmont’s most important work, Ortus medicinae (“Birth of medicine”), was published four years after his death by his son. Its publication in the Netherlands, a Protestant country, was thought necessary to avoid the Inquisition, whose disfavor Helmont had earlier incurred because of his mystical and magical tastes not entirely in keeping with Church dogma. In this work, Helmont established his name as one of the founders of biochemistry, although some authorities believe that he is perhaps overrated because of his vacillations between mysticism and science. In any event, his discovery of digestive juices in the stomach and intestine, and especially his first use of the specific gravity of urine for diagnostic purposes, mark him as a man of no insignificant importance in the history of medicine. [Heirs of Hippocrates]. ¶ Provenance: Raymond John Cary (d. 1959?) was a 1912 graduate of Johns Hopkins University. He wrote a paper, “Digestion; an historical survey,” for the Bulletin of Johns Hopkins Hospital, May 1916, p. 142. In this paper Cary refers to this very copy of van Helmont’s Ortus medicinae and draws from the text what are his own perceptions on the author’s views on digestion. Cary writes that Johann Georg Wirsüng’s discovery in 1642 of the pancreatic duct was not known to van Helmont (nor was it understood by Wirsüng who was murdered – see below). Cary worked at the Mt. View Sanatorium, Lake View, Washington. Member: American Public Health Association.

The forthcoming publication of the Scotland atlas is announced on the half-title, but it did not appear on the market until 1654 (as volume 5 of the Theatrum). Neither Koeman nor Skelton mention a French edition with this appendix, which is normally found in the Dutch-text edition of 1647 (Koeman B145B). The ephemeral nature of this edition is confirmed by the fact that the supplement is not mentioned in the index at the end. The present atlas is volume four of the six-volume French text edition of the Theatrum (or Théâtre du Monde). The volumes of the Theatrum were published separately from 1635 to 1655. Volume 4 was introduced with French text in 1645. In its completed form, the Theatrum was the finest and most accurate atlas yet to have been published. Koeman I, Bl-42 C (not calling for the extra maps of Scotland or Ireland present here); Skelton 43.

        Parys. [i.e Paris]

      Frankfurt: 1648. Copper engraving by Merian, on two joined sheets. Creased at folds. Mild soiling. 11 ¾ x 28 ½ inches overall. A highly atmospheric panoramic view of early 17th-century Paris: an important contemporary visual record by one of the great engravers of his time. The city is viewed from a vantage point in the present day Parc des Buttes-Chaumont, looking towards the south west, over the Hospitale de S.Louis, to the vast but now long-vanished fortifications of Étienne Marcel, across the city, Notre Dame just left of center, the Louvre and the Tuileries gardens to the right, continuing across the Seine to the left-bank and the open countryside beyond. The foreground includes a back-view self-portrait of the artist seated on a boulder sketching. This fine view is from Merian's `Topographia Franconiae' published in Frankfurt between 1648 and 1656 with text by Martin Zeiler. Merian (1593-1650), the father of engraver Matthäus the younger, and the grandfather of the painter, engraver and naturalist Maria Sibylla Merian, was born Basel in Switzerland. After a peripatetic period when he visited and lived in Nancy (France), Paris and Stuttgart, and after working for Theodore de Bry for a while, he married in 1618 and settled in Frankfurt. From here he issued a great many engravings including a number of town views which, because of their accuracy and artistic excellence, form an invaluable record of Europe during the first half of the sixteenth century.

More than 240 astronomical and geometrical textdiagrams. 9 full-page woodcut illustrations, 7 of these depicting Brahe's astronomical instruments. Nearly all the sheets of this printing has homogeneous browning to the leaves, not due to bad keeping, but caused by the rather poor paper-quality from the press.. First edition of "Opera Omnia", containing Brahe's main astronomical works. At the end of 1610 all the sheets from Brahe's own press at Hven were used up, and his writings were much in demand, so this edition is from start to end a completely new printing and can be considered the second printing of the three main works: Epistolarum astronomicarum libri, Astronomiae instauratae progymnasmata and De mundi aetherei recentioribus phænomenis liber secundus. - Houzeau & Lancaster 2704. - Brunet I:1199. - Bibl.
