      - Hans Hanssøn Skonning, Aarhus 1650. 4to. 332 blade (upagineret). Hver side med bred træskåret røskenramme. Samtidigt pergamentbind. Inskriptioner fra 1650 til 1924 på indersiden af begge permer. Første ejers (1650) navnetræk på titelbladet. Exlibris (Sigurd & Gudrun Wandel) på sidste blanke blad. Indvendige false svage. * Bibl. Dan. IV,246. Thesaurus 644. Danske Provinstryk 1482-1830 Ar 78. Velbevaret eksemplar af Aarhus-bogtrykkeren Hans Hansen Skonnings mest originale værk; som alt andet i hans produktion fremstillet på hans eget trykkeri og sandsynligvis på papir af egen fabrikation fra hans papirmølle syd for Aarhus. Eksemplaret udmærker sig ved, at samtlige ejere fra 1650 til 1923 har sat en inskription. De nyeste dokumenterede ejere omfatter Herman Lynge og Sigurd Wandel. Den første ejer anfører på indersiden af bagpermen, at han den 9. juli 1650 har købt bogen af Hans Hanssen Skaaning i Aarhus til en fordelagtig pris, under hvad bogen ellers plejer at koste. ** Den foretagsomme Aarhusbogtrykker er sandsynligvis selv forfatter til hele dette lange episke digt, det første originale danske (ti år før udgivelsen af Anders Arrebos skabelsesdigt), der er formet som en yderst selvstændig pastiche over Rævebogen. Dyreallegorien er tænkt som en kritik af samtidens sæder og laster, men er i al sin subtile handling sandsynligvis en satire over forholdene i embedsbogerskabet i Aarhus - hvor sandhed og retfærdighed har ringe kår, mens lasten fejrer triumfer. Efter al sandsynlighed er værket forfattet i had mod biskop Morten Madsen, der 1641 satte Skonning fra bestillingen som klokker ved domkirken i Aarhus. Med i billedet er også en skandaløs retssag mod biskoppens frue og hendes svigersøn, hvor det omtalte par blev beskyldt for utugt i bispegårdens have, som kunne følges fra glamhullet i domkirketårnet. Her kom Skonning ind i billedet som et muligvis noget malpropert vidne. Sagen gik bispefamilien imod, og Skonning kunne i 1649 genindtræde som klokker. Fornøjelsen blev kort, for i 1651 styrtede Skonning ud fra det omtalte glamhul, hvad hans bysbørn nok kunne se som Himlens straf for både det ene og det andet.

        Cl. Claudiani Principum, Heroumque Poetae praegloriosissimi, Quae exstant. C. Barthius ope XVII manuscriptorum exemplarium restituit; commentario multo locupletiore, grammatico, critico, philologo, historico, philosophico, politicoque, ita illustravit, ut Auctor pretiosissimus omni aetati, scholasticae, academicae, aulicae, politicaeque, esse debeat ex commendato commendatissimus.

      Frankfurt (Francofurti), Apud Joannem Naumannum, Bibliop. Hamburgensem, 1650. - 4to. (LXXVI, including title & frontispiece),111,(1),1371,(1),(31,(1) corrigenda) p. Vellum 21 cm. (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 Håkanson, professor of Latin Literature at the Univ. of Uppsala, 1980-1987; 2 other names seem to point to Denmark. Under the frontispiece in old ink: 'Axelii Julii Iv.(ari ?) F. Nobilis Dani Dno (Domino?) de Wolstorp etc. Anno 1657'; in faint ink in the right margin of the frontispiece and on the title: 'J.

        IOHANIS SCHR?-DERI PHARMACOPOEIA MEDICO - CHYMICA sive THESAURUS PHARMACOLOGICUS. Quo composita quaeque celebriora; hinc Mineralia, Vegetalia & Animalia Chymico - Medicè describuntur, atque insuper Principia Physicae Hermetico - Hippocraticae candidè exhibentur. Opus non minus utile Physicis, quàm Medicis. Editio tertia, plurimis in locis auctum ac emendatum. .

      Testo latino. 3^edizione. Cm.18,7x15,2. Pg.(28), 516, 348, (58). Sobria legatura in piena pergamena rigida con titoli e fregi impressi in oro al dorso. Tagli spruzzati. Doppio frontespizio: il primo è riccamente decorato a piena pagina, con ritratto dell'Autore, scene di preparazioni farmaceutiche, vedute bucoliche e di animali e stemma allegorico in ovale con il motto "Ditabit servata Fides". In esso è riportata la dizione "Iohanis Schröderi M.D. Pharmacopoeia Medico - Chymica. Plurimis locis correcta, multisque novis Hosculiis adornata. Divulgata sub Censura Ampl. Collegij Medici Ulmensis. Sumptibus Johannis Gerlini Bibliopolae ibidem 1650". Il secondo frontespizio, che riporta la datazione 1649, presenta una marca tipografica in ovale con l'impresa editoriale ed è interessato da due piccole mende cartacee d'epoca, probabilmente a rimuovere antica notazione di proprietà. Alcuni cartigli e capilettera incisi. Bruniture diffuse. Il volume, dopo la dedicatoria, si apre con alcune odi apologetiche in onore dell'Autore, opera di Johannes Barcehausen, Petrus de Spina, Ludovico von Hörnigs, Petrus Lotichius, Joannes Sebastian Blosius, Anton Boxbarterus, Johannes Tilemannus, Georg Scrhöder, Johann Guilielmus Hochstatt, Johannes Loofherus Florimontanus, Antonius Itterus, Balthasar Stutenius, Joannes Pfautz. Il testo, su due colonne, è diviso in due parti, ciascuna con numerazione autonoma: la prima (pg.516) comprende i primi tre Libri della "Pharmacopoeia Medico - Chymica" ("De Isagoge", "De Officina", "De Mineralogia"), la seconda parte contiene i rimanenti ("De Phytologia", "Classis de Animalibus perfectioribus"). L'indice, oltreché in latino, è apposto anche in tedesco in caratteri gotici. Nato in Westfalia, Iohann Schröders (Sazurffeln, 1600 - 1664) dopo gli studi di medicina praticati a Rostock e a Copenhagen, divenne medico chirurgo nell'esercito svedese. Compì numerosi viaggi in Europa per poi stabilirsi a Francoforte sul Meno ove esercitò la professione medica. Compì approfonditi studi di farmacologia e di botanica, sia dal punto di vista storico che della ricerca. In particolare si dedicò alla ricerca dei rimedi in medicina, dividendoli in due tipi, alimentari e farmaceutici. "Dei primi fa una descrizione dettagliata nell?arte culinaria; distingue i secondi in medicamenti semplici e composti, tenendo conto della costituzione (odore, sapore, figura) della usurpazione (modo di somministrazione) e della signatura (modo di conoscerne le virtù). Prende in considerazione l?astrologia e la meteorologia prendendo spunti dai paracelsisti e galenisti. Particolare il metodo suggerito per raccogliere le erbe: ci fornisce tabelle, novene, orari per l?eradicazione e la conservazione; ricette e rimedi proposti sono a dir poco "fantasiosi" e ripropongono le antiche credenze popolari in materia di medicina" ( dal sito "abocamuseum"). A lui si ispirò in seguito il Boerhaave, ridimensionandone tuttavia l'influenza alchemica e astrologica. Il presente testo fu pubblicato in prima edizione nel 1641.

        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.

        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.

        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.

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.

Interesting for its insights into everyday legal practice during the Commonwealth era, this handy pocket-sized reference book has contents arranged alphabetically by topic. Little is known about the author, who is identified on the title page as a member "of the honourable societie of Lincolns-Inne, Esquire; and sometimes reader there; and an ancient iustice of the peace and quorum in the county of Middlesex; and one of the foure pleaders of the honourable city of London." Later editions of his handbook were published in 1655 and 1663. All are rare. OCLC locates 2 copies of the first edition (at Harvard and Northwestern University Law Schools), 2 of the second (at Columbia and Yale Law Schools) and 2 of the third (at Harvard Law School and the Library of Congress).

Jämför Harms II, 323. Tagen ur sjätte delen av "Theatrum Europaeum". Finns även utgiven separat, i många varianter. Avbildningen av svenska överbefälhavarens, pfalzgreven Karl Gustavs berömda festmåltid i Nürnberg den 25 september. Vid två parallella bord i den rikt dekorerade rådhussalen i Nürnberg sitter alla delegaterna. På alla stolsryggar finns det pfalziska lejonet. I alla hörnen spelar musiker eller läses dikter. 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. I föreliggande version är konstnären borta, liksom en hund i salens mitt. Matprocessionen är däremot förlängd med fler figurer. Under bilden text i nio spalter med gästernas namn. Festen finns även avbildad utifrån torget med lejonet som sprutar vin från fönstret
