MENTEL, JACQUES.
Parisiis: Ex Officina Roberti Ballard, 1650. 4to, contemporary vellum. Woodcut title-page vignette, two head pieces, two tail pieces, one initial letter and one full engraving in the text. Half-title present. An early example of "bibliographical forgery" in which its author, Jacques Mentel, "forged documentary evidence to prove that his alleged ancestor, Johann Mentelin of Strasssburg, anticipated Gutenberg in the invention of movable type" - Freeman. To add legitimacy to the text, Mentel dedicated his work to antiquarian and scholar Bernard van Mallinckrodt. Johann Mentelin was an important German printer who flourished between 1458-78. Duplicate tag and early ink shelf mark of an unidentified library on the front free endpaper. Vellum a little soiled and worn; some slight smudges and stains in the text; very good copy.

Viennese edition binding of cont. vellum over boards, three ornamental borders round sides, fleurons in each corner, coat-of-arms on upper cover of the Habsburgs, the one on the rear cover depicts the coat-of-arms of an Austrian Archduke (all stamped in silver, now oxidized), orig. red & beige silk ties, a.e.g. Vienna: J.J. Kürner, 1650. First edition of this beautifully illustrated German Baroque work; it is the first book printed in Austria on equestrian riding schools. Vienna has had a long tradition, stemming from the Spanish Riding School founded in 1562 by Habsburg Emperor Maximilian II, of the highest level of horsemanship and this handsome book is part of that notable tradition. The Lipizzaner stallions of today, which demonstrate classical dressage, trace their roots to the Spanish Riding School. Galiberto was a Neapolitan count and riding master to Emperor Ferdinand IV, King of Hungary and Bohemia (his finely engraved coat-of-arms is on the verso of the title-page). The present work is divided into three parts. The first is devoted to the proper training of horses and here we find a discussion of the best sources for horses including Spain and Naples (the sources for the finest of the Lippizans), Turkey, and Pomerania. The second deals with horsemanship and the third is concerned with illnesses of horses and veterinary … [Click Below for Full Description]

JANSSON, Jan
Amsterdam:, c.1650. Britanna prout divisa fuit temporibus Anglo-Saxonum praefertim durante illorum Heptarchia. [England and Wales] Framed size: 730 x 630 mm. Copper engraving. Original hand colour. Presented in handmade wooden frame. Very good condition. Spectacular framed map showing the Saxon kingdoms of Britain. The map is based upon Blaeu's map of 1645, but can be readily distinguished from Blaeu's map by the addition of three compass roses, rhumb lines and sailing ships. The two sets of vignettes on either side of the map were first incorporated by Speed in his Heptarchy map of 1611 and show historical scenes in Saxon history between 456 and 662 AD. The vignettes have been completely redone by a Dutch engraver and are in the grand style of contemporary Dutch paintings. With Dutch text on the verso. A nice example of one of the most decorative maps of Britain ever published.

Very good. Tight and quite handsome. Frontispiece (Volume I), Volume II engraved title page, marbled endpapers. Miniscule "Tout Binder" inkstamped on inner flyleaf of each volume. Tight and handsome pair of the fourth enlarged and corrected edition of this 1627 work. A poem by May's friend Ben Johnson ("To my chosen Friend, The learned Translator of Lucan, Thomas May, Esquire") follows the brief biography of Lucan that opens the first volume. Bookplate of noted collector William S. Stone on the front flyleaf of each volume and, more interesting, the bookplate of H. Buxton Forman graces each front pastedown -- likely a printed reproduction of Forman's engraved bookplate, added by Anderson Galleries when they auctioned off Forman's books in April 1920. Forman (1842-1917) was an English bibliographer of Keats and Shelley and antiquarian bookseller who entered the ranks of book collecting infamy when he partnered with notorious collector Thomas J. Wise in creating phony literary pamphlets featuring previously-unknown first appearances of poems by many noted poets of the day, which were then sold for substantial sums; their large-scale fraud wouldn't be widely known until Graham Pollard and John Carter's 1934 "An Enquiry into the Nature of Certain Nineteenth Century Pamphlets" spelled it all out in detail. Forman's bookplate features a profile image of a full-bearded young Forman in his … [Click Below for Full Description]

First Latin Quarto Edition (Guibert, pp. 158-159).First Latin Quarto Edition of Descartes' Important Work on the Workings of the Body and Soul Including Significant Contributions on Ethics and Psychology. The first Latin editions were published by Elzivier in 1650 in both 12mo and quarto formats - most likely simultaneously although the 12mo version is typically given priority. This Latin translation of the original French edition of Les passions de l'ame (1649) was done by Samuel and Henri des Marets. An English translation was also published in the same year. The Latin edition of Descartes' last work, Les passions de l'ame (1649), was written in Egmond-Binnen, his last Dutch residence, for Queen Christina of Sweden, and first published in the original French the previous year. It discusses psychology, ethics and the relationship between mind and body; Descartes believed that the soul was a definite entity giving rise to senses, thoughts, feelings, affections and acts of volition and he was one of the first to regard the brain as an organ which integrated the function of mind and body. Such beliefs had a powerful influence on the thinking of men like Robert Hooke, Giovanni Borelli, Jan Swammerdam and Thomas Willis, and, at a time when scientific research was expanding rapidly, Descartes' theories helped to explain the more puzzling problems of human physiology (see: Heirs of Hippocrates, no. 291).

Padova-Bassano, Gio. Antonio Remondini, o. J. (um 1650). Antonius ist wohl der bekannteste und beliebteste Heilige der Welt. In Padua wurde Antonius zu Ehren die Basilika S. Antonio als Grabkirche errichtet, seine Gebeine wurden 1236 hierher überführt. An seinem Grab ereigneten sich in der Folge so viele Wunder, dass Bonaventura meinte: "Suchst du Wundertaten, gehe zu Antonius!" Die Basilika in Padua ist eine der meistbesuchten Wallfahrtsstätten. Es gibt aber auch sonst kaum eine römisch-katholische Kirche auf der Welt, die nicht einen Altar, ein Gemälde, ein Fresko oder eine Statue besitzt, die dem Heiligen geweiht ist. - Der zeitgen.

Guericke, Otto Von
Amsterdam: Johanned Jansson Waesberge. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF THE GREAT SCIENTIFIC CLASSICS: "Describes the invention of the air pump and the famous experiment with the Magdeburg hemispheres, in which two teams of eight horses were employed in an attempt to pull apart two copper hemispheres from which the air had been withdrawn. Guericke also describes the invention of the first electrical machine, which generated the first visible and audible electric charges" (Honeyman). "In 1650 Guericke constructed the first air pump, which he used to create a vacuum in various containers. He showed that sound would not travel in a vacuum, and furthermore that a vacuum would not support combustion or animal life. In 1654 Guericke gave an impressive demonstration in front of the emperor Ferdinand III, of the force of atmospheric pressure. Two identical copper hemispheres 12 feet (3.66 m) in diameter were joined together. When the air was pumped out, 16 horses could not pull them apart although when the air reentered the hemispheres they fell apart by themselves. He also showed that 20 men could not hold a piston in a cylinder once the air had been evacuated from one end of it... In 1663 he built the first electrical friction machine by rotating a sulfur globe against a cloth... The results of these and other experiments were published in his Experimental nova Magdeburgica de vacuo spatio (1672; New Magdeburg Experiments Concerning Empty Space)" (Biographical Encyclopedia of Scientists).The magnificent large folding plate of the great public experiment wit … [Click Below for Full Description]

Troisième édition enrichie des passages de la Sainte Écriture & des Pères avec des tables pour les Prédicateurs. Quelques défauts à la reliure : manques sur le dos et sur les coins, mors supérieur partiellement ouvert. Auréoles en bordures sur tout le volume, quelques rares feuillets oxydés, rousseurs éparses. Louis de Grenade (Grenade, 1504 - Lisbonne, 1588) était un dominicain espagnol, écrivain et prédicateur catholique. Il grandit dans l'Alhambra de Grenade, où vivaient les Mendoza, et étudie les lettres. À dix-neuf ans, il est admis au couvent dominicain de Santa Cruz La Real, à Grenade. Il prononce ses vœux en 1525, et prend le nom de religion de frère Luis de Grenade ; il se fait très vite remarquer par ses talents de prédicateur, et reçoit une formation théologique poussée : après ses études à Grenade, il est envoyé en 1529 au couvent de San Gregorio, à Valladolid. Il y fait la connaissance du frère Melchior Cano, avec lequel il aura plus tard maille à partir, mais également de l'archevêque Carranza, qui fut l'un des premiers à mettre en œuvre la Contre-Réforme en Espagne.

Woodcut initials. In good to very good condition. (2 ll.), 52 pp. *** ORIGINAL EDITION of one of the narratives that later comprised the História trágico-marítima; extremely rare. As with all of these Portuguese shipwreck accounts from the mid-sixteenth to the mid-seventeenth century, it was later produced in a counterfeit eighteenth-century edition. Boxer noted, "I have never seen a copy of this first edition and have taken the description from the História da literatura portuguesa ilustrada, III, 214" ("An Introduction to the História trágico-marítima," in Miscelânea de estudos em honra do Prof. Hernani Cidade, p. 86, no. 17A). In some corrections and clarifications to his previous article, Boxer refers to a copy in the Torre do Tombo, gives the collation (which agrees with ours) and calls it "excessively rare" (Quaderni portoghesi V [Pisa 1979], 107). Innocêncio and Figanière also knew only of the Torre do Tombo copy. The Visconde de Azevedo, mistaking the counterfeit edition for the original, reprinted the former on his private press in a limited edition of four copies at Porto in 1865.The Portuguese vessels Sacramento and Nossa Senhora de Atalaya set sail from Goa together in February 1647. Neither was in good repair, and both were wrecked off the coast of Natal, 30 June and 4 July 1647.

RAWLEIGH, WALTER.
London, W. Du-gard, 1650. 12mo. Bound in contemporary full calf with title-labels in leather with gilt lettering. Ex-libris pasted on to pasted down front free end-paper. Frontispiece of Rawleigh. A fine copy. (24), 574 pp. ¶ First abridged edition of Rawleigh's highly influential and widely read work 'The History of the World' (1614).This abbreviated edition, published posthumously, was intended for the "poorer citizens [who] could not afford the expensive folio volume in which the history was published." (Middle-class Culture in Elizabethan England, p. 325).Rawleigh himself states: "This Epitome hath this three fold advantage; it is more portable, more legible, and more vendible, then the great Book: This may bee a pocket companion, and it is soon read over; for everie one will not take pains to read great volumes, and manie cannot for want of leasure. There is also divers that have three of four shillings to bestow on this, which have not twentie or thirtie to impend upon the great Book." (From the preface to the present work). Sir Walter Raleigh (c. 1554 - 1618) was arrested at Exeter Inn, Ashburton, Devon and imprisoned in the Tower of London in 1603 due to alleged involvement in the Main Plot against King James. He remained in the tower until 1616. While imprisoned, he wrote many treatises and the first volume of The Historie of the World. He was beheaded in 1618.
