        The Court and Character of King James. Written and Taken By Sir A: W: Being and Ear and Eare Witness

      London: Printed by R.I. and are to be sold by John Wright at the King's-Head in the Old Baily, 1650. First edition. Frontispiece portrait of King James. [viii], 197 pp. 1 vols. Small 8vo. Contemporary sheep. Corners finely repaired at an early date, red spine label. Fine. Scandals in the Court of King James: a "violently anti-Jacobean tract" This "violently anti-Jacobean tract" (ODNB) was attributed to politician and reputed satirist Sir Anthony Weldon (d. 1648) within a year of its publication. "Despite the somewhat perilous uncertainty of evidence for Weldon's role as a satirist, the publications with which he is commonly associated have enjoyed enormous popularity and influence on later historians. Sir Walter Scott's republication of The Court and Character in The Secret History of the Court of James I (1811) revived them, and modern historians have frequently had cause to lament the way in which 'Weldon' succeeded in distorting history. He may have been unfair, and his satire was certainly just one example drawn from a rich contemporary vein of courtly criticism, but his version of James VI and I as a perverted, hypocritical, slobbering villain remains compelling" (ODNB). A choice copy with the portrait frontispiece present.

Weiter eine Flugschrift den Mord (bis heute nicht aufgeklärt !) an Christian Detlef Rantzau im Jahre 1721 betreffend, angeklagt wurde sein Bruder Wilhelm Adolf Rantzau mit dem er sich in ständigen Streitigkeiten befand (lange Geschichte). Schließlich 4 kontroverse Flugschriften die sich mit dem damals Aufsehen erregenden Fall von Misshandlung und Tötung von 3 Leibeigenen auf Gut Bürau durch Heinrich Rantzau im Jahre 1722 beschäftigen. Der Fall endete mit einem Schuldspruch Rantzaus und Landesverweis.

        Idea principis Christiano-Politici 100 symbolis expressa

      Coloniae [i.e., Cologne]: Apud Constantinum Munich, 1650. Engraved title page, and 103 engraved emblems, of which 101 are sequentially numbered. [24], 795, [5] pp. 1 vols. 12mo. Contemporary calf, red leather spine label. BEAUTIFUL copy, text and emblems immaculate and crisp. The Emblems of Power Fine copy of this little series of discourses on how to conduct oneself as a Christian ruler, originally intended for the Spanish infante, Baltasar, son of King Philip IV. Each new chapter is introduced by a symbolic engraving in the form of a coat of arms, with the Latin motto announcing the theme. the book first appeared in 1640 in Spanish and was immensely popular, and the author himself translated the text to Latin, and in subsequent edition, added one or two more engravings to the sequence. The first and the last engraving (each out of the numbered sequence) are most interesting. The first, with a motto "Ex fumo in lucem" is an exquisite image of a printing press; and the final engraving, beneath a brief obituary of the author ("Magni Politici), shows skull, a tomb, and other images of death beneath the heading "Ludibria Mortis." The engravings themselves are exquisitely wrought, and, particularly in this copy, are bright with excellent detail. Saavedra was a lawyer and diplomat in the service of Spain, who died in 1648.

(Ref: VD17 3:006469N; Schweiger 283; Dibdin: 'Barthius commentary is not only superior to every work which preceded it, but has never been surpassed by any similar production'; Moss 1,376/7: 'rare, and held in considerable estimation'; Brunet 2,88; Ebert 4756; Ernesti, Bibl. Lat. 3,201) (Details: 5 thongs laced through cover; frontispiece by Mubry, depicting the Roman emperor Theodosius the Great and his 'Magister Militum' Stilicho, who guards 2 little boys, Honorius and Arcadius; title in red and black; woodcut printer's mark on title, motto 'Superata tellus sidera domat'; woodcut initials and headpieces) (Condition: Vellum soiled; vellum loosened from fore edge of both boards; front board slightly curved; front endpapers worn; old inscription and name on front flyleaf; name below frontispiece; name and small stamp on title; stain in upper margin of frontispiece and title leaf) (Note: 1650 was a lucky year for the last important Roman poet Claudius Claudianus (ca. 400). In the same year Nicolaas Heinsius' edition of the works of Claudian was published. Claudianus 'war ein sehr fruchtbarer, temperamentvoller Dichter und bietet reichen historischen Stoff in rhetorischem Stil' (Buchwald, Tusculum-Lexikon, 3rd ed. p. 171/2). As 'tribunus et notarius' he acted as court poet for the emperor Theodosius, his general Stilicho, and the emperor's sons Honorius and Arcadius. In 400 he was honoured with a bronze statue on the Forum Trajanum in Rome. His work was widely read in the Middle Ages. The humanists also placed him on the center stage. In the beginning of the 20th century philologist lost interest, but since the rise of interest in late antiquity in the sixties, he is again recognized as one of the great Roman poets. (NP., s.v. Claudianus). Caspar von Barth, or Barthius, 1587-1658, was a child prodigy. He read a lot during his lifetime, but seems to have known little. His specialty seems to have been hoarding material. In his youth, in 1612, he published his first edition of Claudian. He republished it, with many corrections and additions in 1650. The commentary is, says Schweiger, 'überladen'. The very weight of this book, almost 2 kilo's, proves that he is right. For some Barthius was a charlatan, for others a 'divinum ingenium'. Barthius 'war gelehrt, hatte viel gelesen und so auch in seinen Schriften ausgespeichert, aber Ordnung, Klarheit und Schärfe lässt sich vermissen', is the final judgment in ADB (Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie 2, p. 101/2). This edition shows however enough glimpses of genius to deserve the praise most bibliographers assigned to him) (Provenance: On the front flyleaf the name of Lennart Hakanson, professor of Latin Literature at the Univ. of Uppsala, 1980-1987; 2 other names seem to point to Denmark.

        Paul. Potter delineavit ad vivum. [Jaguars]

      [Amsterdam], Nicolaes Visscher, ca.1650. Eight engravings (each measuring ca. 14 x 17 cm), numbered 1-8 in the lower right corner outside the printed frame. Contained in a recent marbled paper clamshell box with mounted paper label showing the title.l A complete suite of eight lively images of quite probably the same individual jaguar (Panthera onca), a species native to South and Central America. Potter's drawings of this species have often been misidentified as those of a leopard (Panthera pardus), see e.g. the British Museum Collection database. Indeed, the leopard seems a more likely candidate, being found in Africa and Eurasia, however, although the figured animal resembles the Persian or Caucasian subspecies in having widely spaced rosettes, the inclusion of spots within the rosettes clearly show that this is a New World animal. Moreover it is far more likely that Potter (1625-1654; a contemporary of Rembrandt and Vermeer, who died at the age of 28 from tuberculosis) saw a specimen imported from Brazil than one from the Iranian region, as the first Dutch West India Company (1621-1674) was busy exploring Brazil - trading with northwestern Asia at that time was minimal. Potter himself never visited Brazil. Piso and Marcgrave, in their Historia naturalis Brasiliae (Leiden, 1648), figured the same species, but far more sketchily, as if they had never seen it alive and nearby. Potter's images seem to be the first accurate renderings, after nature, of this impressive animal, showing its behaviour. Potter was a favourite of the Dutch prince Johan Maurits van Nassau (vide Benezit), who at that time was the first governor-general of Brazil and actually responsible for sending Piso and Marcgrave to Brazil in search of useful herbs, spices and other natural resources. Boeseman, pp. 115-116, noted that one year earlier, the Dutch scholar Caspar van Baerle or Barlaeus (1647), who compiled a book on Dutch Brazil and his activities as governor based on the available archives (including numerous animal and plant pictures to be used by De Laet for the Historia), and oral information, mentioned ?"Large number of Tijgers [tigers] which with their ferocity increased by hunger and by their speed are feared by the population." To which Boeseman (1994) added: ?"The name Tiger, used for the larger carnivores, here probably refers to the jaguar (Panthera onca (Linnaeus)), described and figured, with the indigenous vernacular name jaguara, by Marcgrave (in Piso & Marcgrave, 1648: 235). The puma (Puma concolor (Linnaeus)), with the indigenous vernacular name cugua-curana (Marcgrave, in Piso & Marcgrave, 1648: 235) is also known as tiger, but probably less feared by the population'?". The puma, however, is not spotted. These are the earliest recordings of the South American jaguars and (near) contemporaneous with Potter's drawings. The images were engraved by the highly esteemed artist Marcus de Bye (1612-1670). Artstor.org, in advertising "The illustrated Bartsch", uses the 7th plate of this suite as an example, underscoring the importance of the suite. All the plates are framed, images clean and generally quite strong (one slightly less so), some have a stamp on the verso shining through. In all, a great and attractive suite. Bartsch, 41-8; Benezit 6, pp. 779-780; Boeseman, ?"A hidden early source of information on Brazilian zoology?", Zool. Med. Leiden 68; Hollstein 46 II.

        A Briefe Summary of the Lawes and Statutes of England, So Farre Forth

      1650. A Rare Manual from the Commonwealth Period Collyn, Nicholas. A Briefe Summary of the Lawes and Statutes of England: So Farre Forth as the Same do Concerne the Office of Justices of the Peace, Sheriffs, Bayliffs, Constables, Churchwardens, And Other Officers and Ministers of the Commonwealth. Together with Divers Other Matters not Onely Acceptable for their Rarity, But also Very Necessary for Their Great Use and Profit, For All Persons, But Especially for Such as Bear Office in this Common-Wealth. London: Printed by T.L. for Mathew Walbancke, 1650. [xxii], 192 pp. 12mo. (5-1/2" x 3"). Contemporary calf with later rebacking, blind rules to boards, lettering piece and blind rules to spine. Moderate rubbing to extremities, rubbing and some gatoring to boards, corners worn, hinges cracked, later armorial bookplate (of Thomas Foley) to front pastedown. Title printed within ruled border, typographical head-pieces. Moderate toning to text, faint dampstaining to margins in a few places. Early owner signature (Tho. Foley) with note of library shelf location to front free endpaper, internally clean. A nice copy of a rare title. * First edition. Interesting for its insights into everyday legal practice during the Commonwealth era, this handy pocket-sized reference book has contents arranged alphabetically by topic.

Närmast vid kortänden sitter huvudpersonerna, Karl Gustav och Octavio Piccolomini, hertigen av Amalfi, de båda huvudförhandlarna. Till höger i bild kommer en lång procession av maträtter, bakverk i form av påfåglar m.m., ledd av hovmarskalken Christopher C. von Schlippenbach. Vid ett öppet fönster i bakgrunden står en skulptur av ett lejon som sprutar ut rött och vitt vin till folket utanför. Bilden bygger på en tavla av Joachim Sandrart. På ett större ettbladstryck med samma motiv, och med dikt av Samuel Birken, "Das Schwedische Friedens- und Freudenmahl [...]", finns konstnären själv med och tecknar scenen.

Festen finns även avbildad utifrån torget med lejonet som sprutar vin från fönstret

        Persian miniature, showing a kneeling Indian lady.

      - Isfahan (Persia) or Deccan (India), 17th-18th century. Very refined drawing in pen and watercolour in various colours and heightened with gold, on paper; in center a kneeling Indian lady, seated against a cushion on a terrace, eating breakfast, behind her a tree, in the background a town; verso blank. 18,4 x 12,3 cm.*Drawing of great refinement. The style of the figure, and the face in particular, is similar to the work of Shaykh Abbasi (flourished in Isfahan between 1650-1684), a Persian Safavid court artist who possibly travelled to India and was employed at Golconda in the Deccan, south India, for many of his later works depict figures in Indian costume and settings. He had a very distinctive style, with delicate colouring and notable European elements, and he set a new style of painting which was to be followed throughout the eighteenth century. - A few tears very neatly repaired.[(2246)]
