(CHARLES 1, KING OF ENGLAND)
No Place: No Publisher, 1649. Front and rear covers with the initials "CR" and a portrait of Charles 1 with a death's head in gilt. Double fillet gilt borders with corner winged angels. Front joint tender but intact. Old armorial book-plate on front pastedown. Pencilled notes on front free endpaper. Title-page in red and black. Folding engraved plate by Marshall showing the King at his devotions. The plate is quite crisp and clean. All edges gilt. Pp. 273-278 are mis-numbered 173-178. 279pp. This is a presentation copy from Charles II. Many editions of the book were published in 1848-1849. Exact authorship has been debated since then. Charles 1 was executed on January 30, 1849. One theory has John Gauden, the Bishop of Exeter, writing the book to inspire sympathy for the King and to rouse public opinion against his execution. The "Eikon" or "Image of the King" was a most influential book printed in England during the period of the English Civil Wars and helped turn the tide of opinion in favor of the monarchy, leading to the restoration of Charles II to the throne in 1660. Furthermore, some historians believe that had the book appeared even a week earlier than it did, it might have saved the King's life. See Allibone, Volume 1 and Wing E294-306. One book with similar binding has come to auction in the past 30 years according to ABPC. We find only two libraries worldwide listing the book on OCLC.. Early Edition. Full Contemporary Calf. General Light to moderate Wear/No Jacket. 6 3/4" x 4 1/4".

Charles I and John Gauden
London - R. Royden, 1649 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A charming andearlycopy of this highly sought after work, which purports to be Charles I's spiritual autobiography. First edition, with the original frontispiece engraved by William Marshall. Accompanied by Latin and English verses in explanation. Published on February 9, 1649, ten days after the King was beheaded by Parliament in the aftermath of the English Civil War. Written in a simple, moving, and straightforward style in the form of a diary, the book combines irenic prayers urging the forgiveness of Charles's executioners with a justification of royalism and the King's political and military program that led to the Civil War. It is by no means certain that Charles wrote the book. After the Restoration, John Gauden, bishop of Worcester, claimed to have written it. Scholars continue to disagree about the merits of this claim, though Gauden did have access to Charles' manuscripts. Condition: Rebacked in a calf binding, with original calf boards with brass clasps. Externally, rubbing to the boards, and loss to the clasps. Calf to the spine is smart. Internally, firmly bound, with lightly age toned pages, and the odd spot. Small closed tears to the frontispiece. Copperplate ink inscription to the endpapers. Overall: GOOD..

Du Ryer, André
London: No publisher/printer, 1649. 4to (18.2 cm, 7.13"). [8] ff., 407, [1] p. (lacking final 7 ff.). First edition. Du Ryer's was the => first vernacular translation of the entire Koran (L'Alcoran de Mahomet, 1647, the third Western translation), and the basis for many following editions in various languages, including this => first ever complete English version published just two years later. Despite never having attended university, André Du Ryer (ca. 1580–1660) became an accomplished orientalist and translator, credited with introducing Persian literature to Europe (Gulist?n, 1634). Appointed French vice-consul to Alexandria in 1623, he studied Arabic and Turkish in situ for years, collecting oriental manuscripts on trips with the French ambassador, for whom he was an interpreter and later counselor. In Istanbul, the sultan also made Du Ryer his ambassador extraordinary to France. Woodcut headpieces and initials decorate the text, which is entirely in English, printed in roman and italic with sidenotes. The book closes with "The life and death of Mahomet, the prophet of the Turks, and author of the Alcoran" (pp. 395–407), but does not include the final, discrete article called for by ESTC, "A needfull caveat of admonition for them who desire to know what use may be made of, or if there be danger in reading the Alcoran," by Alexander Ross. Wing (rev. ed.), K747; ESTC R200453; Thomason, E.553[3]. On Du Ryer's translation, see: Hamilton, André Du Ryer and oriental studies in seventeenth-century France (2004), ch. 4.

(Stockholm), Henrich Keyser, (1649). 4:o (13) s. Tagen ur band. Lös i häftningen. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Warmholtz 8617. Drottning Kristina och tsar Alexej gör upp om att den allmoge som rymt över gränsen mellan Ryssland och Sverige mellan freden i Stolbova 1617 och 1647 skall förbliva undersåtar i det land de rymt till. Då fler har rymt till Ryssland än till Sverige skall tsaren dock betala skadestånd på "etthundrade och nijotijo tusende rubblar". De som överlupit efter september 1647, skall dock "på begge sidor uthantwardade blifwa". Grova straff väntar den som falskeligen hävdar att någon ur den förra kategorin tillhör den senare.

(Stockholm, Jansson), 1649. 12:o. A12-D12. Lätt lagerfläckig. Återkommande fuktfläck i neder- och yttermarginalen. Samtida understrykningar och marginalanteckningar. Samtida grått pappband med handskriven ryggtiteletikett. Ryggen blekt och med en liten fläck, även bakre pärmen med ett par småfläckar. Med Samuel Kempenskiölds och Gabriel Hasslebohms ägaranteckningar samt ur D. G. Neschers bibliotek, med hans ägarstämpel, och ur Ericsbergs, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. Med Kungliga bibliotekets anteckning "Duppl" i bläck. Collijn sp. 579. Warmholtz 4239. Klemming, Sveriges förhållanden, s. 103. Carlander III, 12. Detta verk behandlar huvudsakligen kriget med Danmark 1644. Samuel Kempe (1599-1670), adlad Kempenskiöld 1648, föddes i Örebro och var lektor i Strängnäs samt senare sekreterare i Kammarkollegiet. Han publicerade 1629 en lärobok i svensk historia över Gustav Vasa. Gabriel Hasselbohm (-1687?) var präst vid Livregementet till häst. Bibliofilen, vinhandlaren och myntsamlaren Daniel Georg Neschers (1753-1827) bibliotek var särdeles starkt i svensk historia och det skulle efter honom säljas på auktion i Stockholm 1828, men förvärvades istället av Kungliga biblioteket. Därifrån har denna sålts som dubblett, troligen på 1831 års stora dubblettförsäljning. Den kan mycket väl ha gått till Carl Jedvard Bonde därifrån via d'Albedyhll.

ROSENHANE, Schering.)
(Holland?), 1649. 12:o. 110 s. Enstaka lager- och småfläckar. Fina marginaler. Fint rött halvmarokängband från mitten av 1800-talet, guldornerad rygg, röda pappärmar med förgylld ram, något blekt rygg. Äldre namnteckning "Recklin"? på titelbladet. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Collijn sp. 778. Se Runeby s. 410ff. Detta är duodesupplagan, som troligen är tryckt i Holland. I Paris trycktes tidigare samma år en upplaga i kvarto. Detta är ett konstitutionellt ställningstagande av Rosenhane mot enväldiga tyranner, personifierade av kardinal Mazarin, vilken Rosenhane i skriften direkt angriper. Rosenhane förfäktar här samma åsiker och synpunkter som han framfört i den svenska debatten, nämligen att makten skulle delas mellan monarken och rådet, dvs högadeln. Diplomaten, riksrådet och hovmannen Schering Rosenhane (1609-63) skickades 1647, efter att ha varit observatör vid fredsförhandlingarna i Münster, som svensk minister till Paris, med uppdrag att skaffa franska subsidier till Sverige. Rosenhane sympatiserade dock med Frondens opposition mot Mazarin, vilket misskrediterade honom hos denne, och efter att ha publicerat denna broschyr, vilken fick mycket uppmärksamhet, blev situationen för Rosenhane omöjlig i Paris och Kristina fick återkalla honom till Sverige. Han skickades dock genast ut på nya uppdrag. Närmast hamnade han som medlare mellan Sverige och ärkestiftet Bremen.

Descartes made an essential distinction between the soul as the divinely-endowed seat of consciousness, will and rational thought, and the body as a machine or automaton subject to the laws of physics, and only indirectly controlled by the soul through the nerves. Using this dualistic model, he was able to make the important distinction between voluntary and involuntary actions. Descartes located the soul in the pineal gland, which thus served as the locus for interaction between soul and body; he had defined the pineal gland's function in the Traité, but Les passions de l'âme contains his first published account of it. The work also contains the first use of the word "reflex" in connection with the action of the nervous system. "Cartesian dualism . . . gave great impetus to the development of psychology in its own right" (Hunter & Macalpine, p. 133). The first edition of Les passions de l'âme was divided between Louis Elzevier in Amsterdam and Henry le Gras in Paris. There is no priority between the two versions; both are equally rare.

GALILEI, Galileo
Padua: Paolo Frambotto, 1649. THIRD EDITION. With a large folding engraved plate of the sector and numerous woodcut text diagrams. Early soft boards; a superb copy from the library of Felix and Frieda Pollak, with their bookplate. Preserved in a folding cloth box. Third edition of Galileo's valuable first published book. He here describes and explains the use of his invention, the geometric and military compass, or circle of proportion. The instrument, the first important device to perform arithmetical calculations by mechanical means, made it possible to calculate the ratios between linear dimensions of planar and solid bodies, and was specifically created to calculate trajectories and distances for military purposes. According to DSB, Galileo "transformed [the device] from a simple device of limited use to an elaborate calculating instrument of varied uses and of great practical utility by adding to it a number of supplementary scales. He . . . wrote a treatise on its use for engineers and military men." Pollak (1909-1987), an Austrian émigre, became an accomplished American poet and special collections curator at the University of Wisconsin.

Descartes, Rene
Paris: Chez Henry Le Gras, 1649. Hard Cover. Very Good. Hard Cover. First Edition. RARE. This is the last book by Descartes to be published in his lifetime. It was published simultaneously in French by Henry Le Gras in Paris and Louys Elzevier in Amsterdam. In this work, Descartes considers the theories of "the passions." His precursers in this included St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas. In modern times, the passions are generally now called "emotions," but there are differences, mainly that emotions are produced by the subject while passions are suffered. Expertly rebacked in brown calf with original leather boards and original marbled endpages. There is minor wear to the corners and edges with slight bumping and a few small chips to the leather. The interior is very clean overall with small sporadic spots of foxing. Includes woodcut initials and tailpieces. Full gilt edges. In very good condition. xlviii + 286 pages. PHIL/082311.
