Pietro TESTA (Lucca 1612 – 1650 Rome)
Etching with drypoint, circa 1648-50, first state, on laid paper with indistinctly legible watermark including a circle ca. 50 mm in diameter, possibly an anchor and a letter M within. Signed in plate lower center “P. Testa fecit.” Image and sheet 265 x 417 mm, trimmed on the plate mark. Original unobtrusive vertical center fold and vestige verso of another old crease off center; small ink splotch and skinned spot at lower edge at the letters “fec”; archivally matted (43 x 49 cm); unidentified miniscule ink inscription “I-B. 533” verso center; otherwise fine condition. See Cropper, Elizabeth, Pietro Testa 1612-1650: Prints and Drawings (Philadephia Museum of Art, 1988), no. 121, pp. 262-5, 290 (state I). Hailed already by peers as draftsman and printmaker, Testa ranks with Castiglione in Italian 17th-century etching. This plate concludes Testa’s possibly truncated series, near the end of his life, of three “Scenes from the Life of Achilles.” It illustrates the Iliad at Book 22, lines 395-404, translating, as Cropper says (op. cit. at p. 262), the walls of Troy “from Greek into Latin in the form of the Colosseum, the Torre delle Milizie, and the Pantheon.” In Testa’s highly original invention, reminiscent nevertheless of Rubens’s and Poussin’s renditions of the Death of Hippolytus, Achilles guided by crowning Victory must yet be prescient of his own inexorable fate as the frenetic horses plunge the chariot downwards to the shade of darkness. Cropper observes of this plate (op. cit. at p. xxviii) that Testa “determined to emphasize the closed, muscular forms of figures throug … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pietro TESTA detto "Il Lucchesino"
Acquaforte e puntasecca, 1648-1650 circa, firmata in lastra, in basso al centro "P. Testa fecit". Esemplare nel primo stato, avanti ogni indirizzo. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "doppio cerchio con giglio", sottili margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L’incisione mostra un momento culminante nella guerra di Troia, quando Achille, dopo l'uccisione del suo amico Patroclo, torna a combattere per vendicarlo e uccide Ettoore, figlio de Priamo. Accecato dall'ira, Achille trascina il corpo di Ettore dal suo carro attorno alle mura di Troia, sotto gli occhi impotenti del re e di sua moglie, dall’alto delle mura. Questa stampa è la sola di una serie, rimasta incompleta, sulla Vita di Achille che ne comprendeva solo tre stampe. Etching with drypoint, 1648 – 1650 circa, inscribed in the image above the center of the lower margin "P. Testa fecit". Example of first state, before any publisher’s address. Good example, printed on contemporary laid paper, with "double encircled fleur-de-lys", thin margins, very good condition. The print shows a climactic moment in the Trojan War, when Achilles, roused out of his silence by the killing of his friend Patroclus, kills King Priam's son Hector. Incensed with wrath, Achilles takes his vengeance a step further, and drags Hector's body from his chariot around the walls of Troy. The king and his wife, who were unable to dissuade this shameful act, remain on top of the walls. She faints at the sight of her son's body being dragged through the dust; not at his noble death. This print is part of Testa's incomplete Li … [Click Below for Full Description]

Guido Bentivoglio d'Aragona (4 October 1579 - 7 September 1644) was an Italian cardinal, statesman and historian. Under Clement's successor, Pope Paul V, he was appointed titular archbishop of Rhodes, 14 May 1607, with a dispensation for being three months shy of the canonical age and not having yet received the sacred orders, in order to give him appropriate credentials as nuncio at the court of the Archdukes Albert and Isabella in the Habsburg Netherlands, (1 June 1607 - 24 October 1615). He arrived in Brussels when negotiations between the Habsburgs and the Dutch Republic to end the Eighty Years' War were about to begin. Following the conclusion of the Twelve Years' Truce in April 1609, he was greatly concerned with the position of Catholicism in the Republic. Accredited to a Habsburg court, he likewise took a keen interest in the final stages of the reign and the succession of … [Click Below for Full Description]

AEG. Gilt dentelles. Marbled eps. Binding with minor signs of use & wear. Recent bookseller notes to preliminary blank, with modern London bookseller ticket to front blank. Frontis is a touch grubby and shows a tiny bit of edge chipping. Title leaf floated, with period signatures of Robert Bridge and Joseph MacIntyre. H2 with small hole along gutter. Pale staining to margins (heavier to first half of the volume). Tiny worm run to edge of first couple of leaves, and some tiny runs to margins in places. Scattered pale marginal foxing. Withal, a handsome VG+ copy of this title. Item #44496 A lovely copy of this famous Royalist publication, purporting to be the memoirs of the recently executed King. So controversial was it that Parliament commissioned an answer with John Milton's Eikonoklastes. Milton was the first to cast doubt on its authorship, and Madan's New Bibliography of the Eikon Basilike demonstrated that while Dr. John Gauden was the author, he worked closely from Charles' manuscripts.

BLAEU, JOAN
"Kopergravure in de tijd met de hand gekleurd, uitgegeven te Amsterdam ca. 1648 door Joan Blaeu, (1596-1673). Afmetingen (prent) ca. 45 x 57 cm.Uit Blaeu's atlas ""Toneel der Steden van de Verenigde Nederlanden met hare beschrijvingen""?, verschenen op 5 juni 1648, de datum waarop de vrede van munster een einde maakte aan de tachtig jarige oorlog. Blaeu gebruikte de grote gravure van Jacques de Geyn's zeilwagen uit 1603, (noordwaarts, naar rechts rijdend) als voorbeeld voor zijn eigen prent. Op een dag tussen 13 april en 23 mei 1602 maakte prins Maurits in gezelschap van 27 gasten een tocht met zijn zeilwagen (ook wel ""?landjacht' genoemd) van Scheveningen naar Petten, 14 Hollandse mijlen, met prinselijk vaandel in top. Tot de inzittenden van het voertuig, dat was uitgevonden Simon Stevin, behoorden o.a. de toen 19-jarige studievriend van Frederik Hendrik, Hugo de Groot, de Frans ambassadeur in Den Haag Paul Choart de Buzanval, de bij Nieuwpoort gevangen genomen Francis de Mendoza, generaal in het leger van aartshertog Albert van Oostenrijk, Ulric van Holstein, broer van de Deense koning Christiaan IV en Frederik Hendrik. De zeilwagen kon het traject Schevingen-Petten alleen afleggen met een sterke zuidwestenwind over de smalle, vrij gladde strook zand tussen de zee en de duinen. Het voertuig kon een snelheid bereiken van meer da 50 kilometer per uur. Rechts in beeld twee ruiters in galop. Deze zullen wel zijn ingeschakeld om aan te tonen dat de wagen zich veel sneller kon verplaatsen, dan dat met een paard mogelijk was.

MANUSCRIT] CHIRAC (Pierre)
s.l., s.d, 1648. s.l, s.d, (1er tiers du XVIIIe siècle), in-4, 453-[1] feuillets, basane havane de l'époque, dos habilement restauré à l'imitation, Intéressante compilation manuscrite à l'encre brune, reproduisant des cours inédits de Pierre Chirac (1648-1732), premier médecin du duc, puis régent Philippe d'Orléans et de Louis XV. Le manuscrit, en latin puis en français, comprend 6 traités ; - Le premier, en latin, porte le titre général d'Historia generalis morborum (histoire générale des maladies) et traite, en particulier, des maladies de la tête (partie 1, feuillets 1 à 123) puis de celles du coeur (partie 2, feuillets 124 à 168). La suite, en français, comporte : - Histoire des maladies du bas ventre (feuillet 169 à 296) ; - Traitté des maladies des femmes selon Mr Chirac (297 à 364) ; - Traitté des maladies des enfans (365 à 392) ; - Traitté des fièvres intermittentes (393 à 430) ; - De gonnorrhea (431 à 453), sur la gonorrhée, dite plus familièrement la chaude-pisse). Le copiste qui est à l'origine de l'écriture de ces traités a ajouté, in fine, une table des matières de 2 pages et qui se prolonge sur le contreplat inférieur. Ce joli manuscrit, très soigné, donne donc à lire une médecine générale du premier tiers du XVIIIe siècle. Il est probablement l'oeuvre d'un élève qui suivait les cours, réputés, du célèbre médecin à l'Université de Montpellier. Cet ouvrage est à mettre en perspective avec d'autres traités manuscrits d'après Chirac, rédigés par ses élèves, dont quelques-uns sont conservés à la Bibliothèque Interuniversitaire de Santé de Paris ; un Traité de chir … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bacon, Francis
Amsterdam, Elzevier, 1648, 12 , mit gestochenem Titel, (36), 612, 48 pp. 87 pp., Pergamenteinband d.Zt. mit neuerem Rückenschildchen St.a.Tit. Scarce Latin edition of Bacon's celebrated work, published the same year as the Leiden edition. First published posthumously in the year of Bacon's death (1626), Sylva Sylvarum is a an aptly-described "miscellany of topics?", dealing with the prolongation of life, the natural world, and the wisdom of the ancients, arranged in 1000 numbered paragraphs. William Rawley, Bacon's secretary, chose to addend the unfinished manuscript of New Atlantis to the former work, if only for convenience's sake. Bacon's utopian population famously practice eugenic breeding and are committed fundamentally to the pursuit of scientific learning. Having enjoyed five English editions by 1639, the present work attests to Bacon's popularity beyond British shores Elzevir in Amsterdam and Hackium in Leiden brought out simultaneous Latin translations in 1648. Hackium's re-engraved title page, interestingly, follows the original of 1626 rather closely, including a globe with outlines of the continents.. Die Naturbeschreibung in zehn Centurien mit Naturbeobachtungen verschiedenster Art. Der letzte Teil "Novus Atlas, Opus imperfectum, cum praefatione W. Rawley" "contains a description of the Island of Bensalem, on which there is a cooperative college of Science called Salomon's House .. it ranks among the bestknown and most delightful Utopian writings in the world and has been perhaps the most influential" DSB I, 375

In Bologna, per Giacomo Monti, 1648. 2 parties en 1 volume, petit in-4. 3ff. 204pp. + 4ff. 140pp. 1f. Plein vélin souple, dos lisse, titre manuscrit à l'encre au dos (reliure de l'époque, dos défait). Fameuse chronique des révoltes populaires fondatrices du nationalisme catalan, par l'historien italien Luca Assarino (1607-1672). La première édition, parue à Gênes en 1644, portait principalement sur la révolte dite du "Corpus de Sang", émeutes survenues à Barcelone le 7 juin 1640 (jour de la fête catholique de "Corpus Christi") à l'instigation de paysans écrasés par les impôts. A partir de 1647, l'ouvrage fut augmenté du récit des violents troubles qui opposèrent par la suite la population catalane à la couronne de Castille: connus sous le nom de la Guerre des Faucheurs ("la Guerra dels Segadors"), ils constituent l'épisode fondateur de la mythologie nationale catalane moderne. Né à Séville de parents italiens, l'auteur fut notamment chroniqueur de la maison de Savoie. Joli bois gravé au titre. Dos partiellement détaché. Quelques taches et rousseurs. Bon état intérieur.

Migrating to Queen's College and then to St Edmund's, Bate graduated BA in 1626 and MA and BA in 1629, the latter giving him licence to practise around Oxford, and DM in 1637. Early observers may have labelled him a puritan, but when Charles I established the court in Oxford Bate became a member of the royal party, and was made physician to the king. Settling in London by 1639 Bate became a fellow of the College of Physicians in 1640 and served as censor in 1645, 1646, and 1648, and was named an elect in 1657.

[Charles I, King of England 1600 - 1649]. [Gauden, John].
[London]: 1648. Early edition (Madan 21; Almack 15; Wing E-270). [4], 302, [16] pp. Numerous mispaginations throughout. Double-page engraved frontispiece by William Marshall, "designed for this edition". [Madan]. 8vo: A - U^8 (D1 mis-signed as E1) ¶^4 (a)^4. 6-1/4" x 3-13/16" (16 cm x 9.7 cm). Full red morocco leather binding (18th C?) with elaborate gilt decorative stamping to front & rear boards; raised spine bands; gilt stamped title in second compartment & gilt stamped decorations in the remainder. AEG. Gilt dentelles. Marbled eps. Binding with minor signs of use & wear. Recent bookseller notes to preliminary blank, with modern London bookseller ticket to front blank. Frontis is a touch grubby and shows a tiny bit of edge chipping. Title leaf floated, with period signatures of Robert Bridge and Joseph MacIntyre. H2 with small hole along gutter. Pale staining to margins (heavier to first half of the volume). Tiny worm run to edge of first couple of leaves, and some tiny runs to margins in places. Scattered pale marginal foxing. Withal, a handsome VG+ copy of this title. Item #44496 A lovely copy of this famous Royalist publication, purporting to be the memoirs of the recently executed King. So controversial was it that Parliament commissioned an answer with John Milton's Eikonoklastes. Milton was the first to cast doubt on its authorship, and Madan's New Bibliography of the Eikon Basilike demonstrated that while Dr. John Gauden was the author, he worked closely from Charles' manuscripts.

Name/address of 19th century owner (carriage shop in London) on pastedown. Condition note on back of blank endpaper. Some corners loss to title page, and a fill at top; title page tipped onto front endpaper. A little separation between title page and text block. Top and bottom margin trimmed tight, often affecting signature/catchword and top margin title. Browning typical to rag paper of this time throughout with occasional brown spots.

There are two states of this 1648 English civil war era Bible; this is the one with John Field's name abbreviated and "Payne" signed to the bottom of the title page. I believe I read that this is the more rare state, but I'm having difficulty finding that reference now. This is the complete Old and New Testament (the Apocrypha is not included).

At the center, an empty gilt oval surrounded by gilt scroll-work, with a fleur-de-lys at the bottom and CR at the top, surmounted by the royal crown. On the spine, eight panels separated by gilt double-fillets surrounded by gilt double-toothed roll. In the panels, gilt fleurons. Two clasp holes to the fore-edge of each face. Dashed gilt roll to the edges of the boards. All edges gilt. A quite splendid reattached tear to the leather, beginning just over the royal crown on the front face, swirling across the spine, and cutting upwards along the rear face about an inch into the upper edge. Head- and tail-piece chipped. Lower edge of the rear board worn. All plates pasted in rather than integral to the text. A1 (title-page) loose. Paste-downs later.

Francis Quarles
London: Richard Royston. Condition: Good. The Quarles is a Third Edition from 1648; this and the commonplace book are bound in mid 19th century half red calf and green paper-covered boards, approximately 7.5 x 6 inches. Paginated (6) 62 (2) pp. this appears to be complete, but OCLC cites a portrait plate, and there is none present here. The title page has been trimmed and there are small crenolated circular patches at the gutter of the title page and the next page (see pics). Quarles is followed by one printed leaf, which is the dedicatory poem to Alexander Pennecuik by John Forbes that appears in 'The Description of Tweeddale' published 1715. The 34 pp of handwritten verse that succeeds this appear to be mid 18th century and almost undoubtedly by a Scotsman, first, 'Godly Sarah or the Sighing Sister' (authored by 'Ned Scrawl' and published in Edinburgh in 1737); 'To Delia, being detain'd from her by Sickness' (we find no record of publication), Alexander Robertson of Struan's 'Inscription of Mount Alexander' and also 'Struan's Apology to Mrs. Alicia McKenzie' (Alexander Robertson was the 13th Chief of Struan, 1689-1749); 'The Character of Sir Ewen Cameron...' (Cameron died in 1719), 'On the Murther of King Charles the first by the then Schoolmaster of Leith, an Ode' (here, too, no record of publication we could ascertain), 'An English-mans Grace over his Pock-pudding' (This was penned by Alexander Pennecuik and was first published in 1750), and finally 'Thanksgiving after Moat' (no record we could find of publication).

Pietro TESTA detto "Il Lucchesino" (Lucca 1611 - Roma 1650)
"Acquaforte e puntasecca, 1648-50, firmata in lastra in basso a destra. Esemplare nel raro primo stato di quattro, avanti l'inidirizzo dell'editore Van Westerhout. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana ""giglio nel cerchio"", con sottili margini, traccia di pieghe di carta centrale, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'opera racconta episodi diversi e consequenziali legati all'infanzia di Achille. La scena in primo piano sulla destra l'episodio mitologico in cui Teti, sposa di Peleo, per rendere invulnerabile il figlio Achille, che aveva scelto per sé una vita breve ma gloriosa a una vita lunga senza gloria, lo immerge nello Stige tenendolo per il tallone, unica parte del corpo che rimane vulnerabile e in cui sarà colpito a morte da Paride. In realtà nell'incisione Teti prende Achille dalle caviglie, per immergerlo in un vaso contenente l'acqua dello Stige, su cui è raffigurata in rilievo la Vittoria alata che reca in mano la corona della gloria. Le tre figure femminili che assistono Teti rappresentano probabilmente le Parche, le divinità del destino e della morte. In questo modo, Testa compendia l'intera vicenda di Achille: le sue gesta gloriose, le sue vittorie e la sua morte. Sullo sfondo a sinistra, è rappresentato un altro momento del mito: Teti, dopo aver consultato l'oracolo di Delfi sul destino del figlio, ritorna dalle sue sorelle, le Nereidi, e con loro inizia a raccogliere l'acqua del fiume. Stando in piedi, nuda, appoggia la mano su un altare con vaso con d'incenso fumante offerto in dono all'oracolo. Appena più indietro un a … [Click Below for Full Description]

BACON, Francis
"Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly." ― Francis Bacon Francis Bacon, one of the most famous English philosophers and scientists of the Renaissance. While most of his work deals with discovery, scientific method, and the scientific revolution, he did lean strongly toward Puritanism in his personal devotion. An extremely rare 1648 printing of 'The Remains' of Francis Bacon. This book of Bacon's works includes essays, letters, responses to treaties, prayers, and confessions, of particular note are Bacon's letters to Queen Elizabeth and Edward Cooke. Originally published in 1642, this edition included style changes as well as minor material additions. There is some discrepancy in the first article, "An Essay of a King". While it is a word for word exact copy of the 1642 edition, the authorship of this essay is not thought to be Bacon. (Montague, 3I). [Attributes: First Edition]

While most of his work deals with discovery, scientific method, and the scientific revolution, he did lean strongly toward Puritanism in his personal devotion. This book 'Sylva Sylvarum' with 'Novus Atlas' is a famous set of philosophical treatises covering topics such as medical treatments for prolonged life and preservation of youth by using opium! Bacon wrote this book as a collection of miscellaneous topics - others include ancient wisdom and secrets. This Latin translation was edited by Jacob Gruter and includes a preface by William Rawley. Rawley, Bacon's secretary, decided to add the unfinished but fascinating 'New Atlantis' to the end of this printing of 'Sylva'.
