Pleasant enough 18th or 19th century polished calf, rebacked (perhaps in the 1970s), flat spine with vertical gilt titling, new endpapers. Title page with early ink ownership inscription of W. Bayntun, Gray's Inn (see below) and with his ink initials "WB" at foot of last page. Rear pastedown with neatly pencilled notes relating to the purchase of the book at Sotheby's by William Stirling Maxwell in 1978: "Estimated at £80/120. I paid £200 + £20 ($436.50)." Wing A-3744; Sabin 67545. Extremities a bit rubbed, a hint of soiling and a handful of small scratches to the covers, faint darkening and minor fraying to edges of title, other trivial imperfections, but an excellent copy, quite clean and fresh internally, and in a solid, very satisfactory binding. This is a rare copy of a text relating to the accusation, in 1603, that Raleigh had conspired with fellow courtier Baron Cobham to facilitate a Spanish invasion to prevent James Stuart from inheriting Elizabeth's throne. Raleigh, never adept at politics, had alienated Elizabeth's powerful secretary, Sir Robert Cecil, and the influential Howard family of Norfolk. Cecil and the Duke of Norfolk lost no opportunity to malign Raleigh to James, and seized upon an unfortunate and characteristically impulsive remark Raleigh made about thwarting the succession to try him for treason. Our "Arraignment" comes from that trial, in which the silver-tongued Raleigh argued so pe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris: Chez Nicolas & Jean De La Coste, 1648. 8vo. [16], 381, [2], 270pp, [42]. With 16 engraved plates. Nineteenth-century red morocco, gilt, A.E.G. Lightly rubbed to extremities. Some shaving to title, plates and running titles at edges. Occasional marking to text. Bookplate of Kenneth Clark, Saltwood, to FEP. Ink inscriptions in French and English to blank fly-leaves. The third edition of Montlyard's edition of Apuleius in French, with an extensive commentary. From the Heber library, noting purchase at the Pennicott Sale (Sothebys, 1811) with a 7 line inscription detailing the references within to William Bankes' performing horse Marocco. Displayed in Paris during 1601, the spectacle had such an effect on Montlyard as to provoke his mentioning of 'c'est incomparable cheval' in the first (1602) and all subsequent editions of his translation of the Golden Ass. This later formed lot 48 of the 10th portion of the Heber Sale (Sothebys, 1836), finding its way in the twentieth century into the Saltwood castle library of Kenneth Clark. BM STC French 616.

Pontio Francisco Purpan
Tolosae [Toulouse]: Apud Arnaldum Colomerium, Regis, & Academiae Tolosanae Typographum, 1648 A very rare copy of a city pharmacopoeia in possibly contemporary loose vellum wrap. The Pharmaceutical profession was subject to strict regulations from its earliest origins. Reference or formula books were required, guarded, and handed down. In 17th and 18th century France, major cities published their own pharmacopoeia, with 'official' authority. This is the Toulouse pharmacopoiea authored by Pontio Francisco Purpan. It is missing the title page but the contents look otherwise complete with: 3 blank leaves (one looks bright and may have been added at some point); frontispiece by Stuerhelt, with banner 'Dant Sydera Vires'; Dedication by Purpan, 2pp; full page engraving by Stuerhelt; letter by Purpan to a series of nobles 4pp (there is a very well repaired paper tear to the first leaf of the letter); Extract des Registres de Parlement 1p; Catalogue 1p; Lectori 1p; Index Capitum 1p; Codicis Medicamentarii 116pp; 2 blank leaves. With decorative initial capitals and headpieces. The contents are in very good clean condition with the only the occasional small light mark. Size 17 x 22.2cms.

WARWICK, Robert Rich, Second Earl (1587-1658)
1648 Handwritten. Good. No Binding. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Warwick House, 6 February 1648. Four pages (two with text). Folio ca. 32,5x22,5 cm (13x9 in). Right margin ragged and soiled, but complete, and with original folds, otherwise in good condition. Warwick's blind stamp (a crown above an anchor) impressed upper left corner. "In 1642, following the dismissal of the Earl of Northumberland as Lord High Admiral, Warwick was appointed commander of the fleet by Parliament" (Wikipedia). Another of Warwick's titles was Lord of the Caribee Islands and he was active in colonial ventures becoming president of the New England Company and a zealous member of the Bermuda and Providence Companies. The warrant replaces an earlier order with this revised list of ships and requires the provision of boatswains' and carpenters' stores for the whole summer's campaign. From the Collection of the 5th Earl of Rosebery. "As the events of 1648 unfolded, some of the ambiguities of Warwick's position appear rather to have deepened than to have diminished. On 27 May 1648 the greater part of the parliamentary fleet in the Downs mutinied against the command of Colonel Thomas Rainsborough, appointed in place of the politically suspect William Batten. Two days later parliament reappointed Warwick to the post of lord high admiral, in the hope that his popularity would secure the fidelity of the sailors" (Oxford DNB)..

BORRICHIUS, Olaus.
First edition, and "one of the few copies having the folding plate illustrating three types of retorts, as well as the four-page dedication to Jean Baptiste Colbert. According to the Wellcome Library catalogue, 'this plate is a copy from a MS. Of Zosimus (ca. 500 A.D.) of the earliest known illustration of distilling apparatus.' In this work Borrichius answers Hermann Conring's <i>De Hermetica Aegyptiorum Medicina</i> (Helmstedt, 1648), wherein the extreme antiquity attributed to alchemy had been seriously doubted. Borrichius's book contains valuable information on the early history of alchemy. The substantial final portion supports Paracelsian theory as applied to medicine. No other editions except this one of 1674 exist. Although several works by Borrichius were reprinted in Magnet's <i>Bibliotheca Chemica Curiosa</i> (Geneva, 1702), this was not among them.<br/><br/> "Ferguson states that there 'were apparently two issues of this book, for I have seen other copies without the dedication and the plate.' Duveen confirms this, his copy being without the plate and dedication. The Wellcome Library catalogue states that this is the second issue, although on what authority I do not know. This issue is very rare." (The Roy G. Neville Historical Chemical Library).. Small 4to (197 x 147 mm), contemporary vellum, pp. [xii], 448 [8:index] and folding engraved plate facing p. 156, light uniform browning throughout, in all avery good copy in its original state

Losa, Francisco
Early missionary work in New Spain. 1648. Madrid. Francisco Nieto. In 4to (207 mm x 145 mm). 8 ff. + portrait + 114 ff. + 2 ff. Contemporary vellum, soiled, endpapers made of waste. Browned throughout, expected for the paper used, some damp staining, wide margins, unsophisticated copy. Fourth edition. The first is virtually unobtainable, printed in 1613 in Mexico. Lopez (1542 – 1596) was a Spanish missionary and something of a mystery; he travelled to Mexico in 1562, making port at Veracruz at the age of twenty. Shortly after arriving, he left for Mexico City, where he worked for a while before completing his plans to travel to the Zacatecas region and live amongst the Chichimecos Indians. He became a hermit and spent his life amongst Mexican natives in different regions, under suspicion of heresy, apparently not attending Masses and religious services. Overall, Lopez’ experiences become one of the earliest accounts of missionary work in New Spain. Little is known, and much is speculated regarding his early life in Spain, some saying he was a member of the nobility, “one of the most successful of the many early missionaries among the Indians, of New Spain, was born at Madrid, July 4th 1542, and is said to have been an illegitimate son of Charles V. or Philip II. At the age of twenty he landed at Vera Cruz, and soon after pitched his tent alone among the Chichimecos Indians. He died on the 20th of July, 1596, at Santa Fé, six miles from Mexico city, where he had been visited in his hermitage by all distinguished visitors to Mexico.” (Maggs, 1922, 139).

SPILBERGEN, Joris van
Amsterdam,: Joost Hartgers, 1648.. Small quarto, woodcut on title and double-page engraved plate with six vignette illustrations; very faint staining to top corner of some 20 leaves; an excellent copy in contemporary half vellum. Very rare: this Amsterdam printing of two Dutch East Indies Company voyage accounts includes one of remarkably few surviving printed records of Willem Jansz and the Duyfken.This is the fifth edition of this account of Joris van Spilbergen's voyage, first published in 1604. This is, however, the first edition to contain the important supplementary account of the Van der Hagen voyage (see below), which was also the first stage of the Duyfken voyage. It is the only separately published edition of any account of the Van der Hagen voyage - and thus the only separately published record of the voyage that would culminate in the first authenticated sighting of the coast of Australia.The first part of the book deals with Joris van Spilbergen's voyage to Sri Lanka, which was sent out by a group of Zealand merchants in 1601 and successfully established the first trading link between Sri Lanka and the Netherlands. His fleet of three ships visited the Cape of Good Hope and then sailed directly to Sri Lanka, where Spilbergen negotiated with the king of Kandy, promising military assistance against the Portuguese. The narrative of the voyage includes a record of daily events and considerable material on life and customs in Sri Lanka. Earlier editions of Spilbergen's account appeared in Delft in 1604 (several issues) and 1605, and in Amsterdam in 1617. The text als … [Click Below for Full Description]

[GAUDEN, John (1605-62)] formerly attributed to King Charles I
[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.

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. Madan 13, frontispiece 16.

It was published for the use of his brother Mennonites in 1560 by N. Biestkens van Diest in Emden, and became famous as the Biestkens Bible.
