Very rare, not seen at auction since 1977. Collated, complete. (ESTC R17340) This work begins with the titular work. Here Bacon writes a short essay with his opinons on Queen Elizabeth. He is greatly in favour of the deceased Queen in this work and speaks of her in a positive light. He examines the religion, foreign policy and paints a general picture of her reign. Interestingly, it was not until James I's reign that Bacon was knighted and it is believed that Elizabeth did not care much for Bacon in court. The rumour that she referred to him as 'the young Lord'Keeper' is just that. This work also speaks much about Elizabeth's father, Henry VIII. Following the titular work are the six following writings. 'With The Apology of Sr Francis Bacon in Certain Imputations concerning the Late Earl of Essex, written to the Right Honorable his very good Lord, the Earl of Devonshire.' 'The Lord Bacon his Leter to the most Illustrious and Most Excellent Prince Charles, Prince of Wal … [Click Below for Full Description]

Nicolas SANSON d'Abeville (Abbeville 1600 - Parigi 1667)
1651. "Mappamondo di Sanson. A differenza delle precedenti mappe olandesi, quella di Sanson si concentra sulle informazioni geografiche e idrografiche. Lo spazio attorno ai due emisferi viene lasciato intenzionalmente vuoto. Tratta dall'edizione del ""Cartes Gènerales de toutes les parties du Monde"" curata da Pierre Mariette, edita nel 1663. Sanson era il più famoso cartografo francese della storia moderna, cosmografo al servizio di Luigi XIV, re di Francia; dotò le sue mappe delle più recenti informazioni geografiche e delle incisioni più belle e acute del periodo. Il ""Cartes Generales de Toutes les Parties du Monde"" rappresenta il più importante prodotto della cartografia commerciale francese del diciassettesimo secolo. Le mappe furono compilate a partire dal 1630 e l'atlante edito per la prima volta nel 1654, stampato da Pierre Mariette." "Sanson's map of the world. Unlike the earlier Dutch maps, Sanson's map focuses on the geographic and hydrographic information, the space around the double hemispheres left intentionally blank. The outline of the continents and the illustrations of interior information is very accurate for the day. For instance, this map shows all five Great Lakes, a feature shown for the first time by Sanson. However, Sanson was not immune to the cartographic myths of his day. The map shows a strange outline of a great southern continent, as well as several reflections of early knowledge of Australia, an interesting combination of old, mistaken beliefs and data from early explorations in the southern seas. Sanson also shows a large, mythical land of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Camillo Saccenti (Bologna 1614 - 1688)
1651. "La più importante rappresentazione del territorio bolognese, data alle stampe per la prima volta, dal perito pubblico e sopraintendente alle Acque Camillo Saccenti, nel 1651. La carta, in quattro fogli che uniti insime misurano 770x990 mm, è orientata con il nord in alto, con l'orientamento fornito dalla grande rosa dei venti posta in alto a destra. Le distanze sono forniti da una triplice scala miliare in di 3000 pertiche bolognesi e ferraresi e 1800 ravennati, pari rispettivamente a mm. 73, 78 e 70. La carta comprende, oltre al territorio bolognese anche tutto il Ferrarese ed il Ravennate. Descritto molto bene anche il Polesine. Le fonti cartografiche a cui il Saccenti attinse furono le carte di Giovanni Antonio Magini e, per la parte del Polesine, al modello di Giovanni Bonifacio del 1602. La carta ebbe una prima stesura nel 1651, stampata dai torchi di Giuseppe Longhi a Bologna, e successivamente fu aggiornata e ristampata in almeno 4 edizioni prima della fine del secolo. Scrive Roberto Almagià a riguardo: ""La carta generale del Bolognese è dedicata al Senato di Bologna e fu stampata per la prima volta nel 1651 a Bologna presso Gioseffo Longhi; ma di questa edizione originale io ho veduto sltanto un esemplare in mediocre stato di conservazione e mal riproducibile.

Corneille (Pierre, translator) A KEMPIS (Thomas)
Laurens Maurry. Et se vendent a Paris chez Charles de Sercy, 1651. FIRST EDITION of the first part of Corneille's translation to be published, with additional engraved title, Latin and French texts on facing pages, engraved title and letterpress title browned, occasional spotting or light staining, pp. [i], [viii], 56, [1], 12mo, contemporary speckled calf, double gilt fillets on sides, spine gilt in compartments, lettered in gilt direct, a little worn at extremities, various early, illegible notes and scribbles on end-leaves, preserved in a dark blue morocco pull-off box by Riviere & Son. The very rare first part of Corneille's translation to be published: further parts came out at intervals, and the work was complete in 1656. This translation (which proved lucrative) coincided with Corneille's first retirement from the stage. Inside the front cover is the slightly bizarre bookplate of G. Vanel, c. 1890. The central panel has his name, and Ars longo vita brevis lettered vertically, with 4 surrounding panels, featuring the heads of tigers, elephants, vultures, and whole peacocks.

Jeremy Taylor
London: R. Royston. THE RULE AND EXERCISES OF HOLY DYING The extremely rare 1651 first edition of the most famous work by English cleric Jeremy Taylor (1613-1667), one of the greatest prose stylists of the English language, often called the "Shakespeare of the Divines". The Rules and Exercises of Holy Dying is usually issued together with The Rule and Exercises of Holy Living, which Taylor published the previous year; but it was first issue here as a separate work. The subtitle reads: "in which are described the means and instruments of preparing our selves and others respectively, for a blessed death, and the remedies against the evils and temptations proper to the state of sicknesse: together with prayers and acts of vertue to be used by sick and dying persons, or by others standing in their attendance; to which are added rules for the visitation of the sick and offices proper for that ministery". The text is the 1651 original. The book was handsomely rebound in about 1909 (as dated in the owner's signature on the second page). The covers are fine leather with a ribbed spine; the inside of the covers are also leather, elaborately decorated; all text edges are gilt. The condition is very good. The covers show minor wear, the only significant flaw being a crack in the top inch of the front spine gutter. The text is firmly bound. An owner bookplate is affixed to the front endpaper. The text has slight soiling, a few water spots, a few light pencil marks; no serious flaw -- really quite well preserved for a text this age. Again, very, very scarce.

[California]: Philip IV of Spain
Madrid, 1651. [2]pp. Folio. Minimal edge toning, else fine. An important letter from the King of Spain, Philip IV, regarding Indian revolts on the California border in the mid-17th century. The King is also asking the Viceroy's opinion as to whether it would be advisable to place the government of Sinaloa under that of Nueva Vizcaya or to agree to its complete separation. Little is known of the thirty- year period in California before the arrival of Kino, making this letter of special interest to historians of the Golden State. The letter reads, in part and in translation: "...In a letter from Don Diego Guardo Faxardo, my Governor and Captain General of the provinces of New Vizcaya, dated 14th June, 1649, he gives an account of the intended rising of the Taraumares Indians who live in the midst of those provinces and that of Sinaloa; and, foreseeing the danger that might arise should the Indians retire towards that part, he decided - the officer commanding the garrison having set out for the Californias - to send a responsible person to command the troops and to catch the enemy in the midst of their preparations and make them my subjects...that he found the Captain of the Garrison showed much resistance because the said province was always under the Government of Nueva Vizcaya and their predecessors had refrained from nominating a commanding officer of the Garrison merely to please my Viceroys of New Spain, which had led to much inconvenience, for, not being under their command in military matters, the good effect gained in the other way was lost; because they do not wish … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vincenzo Tancredo
Monreale: Pietro Coppola, 1651. [64], 646, [2] p. | Folio | pi4 [maltese cross]4 a-m2 A-4M4 | 292 x 209 mm ¶ First and only edition of Tancredo's encyclopedic treatise on the virtues of the Catholic faith, in which he addresses the Church's stance on just about everything, from idolatry ("contra Dei honorem") and simony ("contra jus divinum") to prayer (it's important) and the observation of feasts (also important). Tancredo acknowledges his debt to Francisco Suàrez, and his work certainly bears some resemblance to Suàrez's De virtute et statu religionis. Head-pieces, tail-pieces, and decorative initials; title page printed in red and black; engraved title vignette, being the arms of dedicatee Cardinal Francesco Peretti di Montalto. Includes index. ¶ The only book under Pietro Coppola's name published at Monreale--a village just a few miles from his principal place of business, Palermo, where imprints bearing his name range from 1642 to 1697. Coppola's editions, scarcely represented in North American collections, survive in relatively small numbers. He nonetheless appears to have been a Sicilian printer of consequence, having worked in an official capacity for both the senate and the Holy Inquisition. ¶ OCLC locates four copies, all in Europe. In its local catalog, the Fondo Librario Antico della Provincia d'Italia della Compagnia di Gesù records its copy with date of 1651 (compare to OCLC #1051104192 with a mistaken 1648 imprint). --- PROVENANCE: Scattered ink stamps of the Bibliotheca Mt.

HARVEY, William.
London: William Dugard, for Octavian Pulleyn, 1651. First edition. John Evelyn's copy, and possibly the unique copy containing the portrait of Harvey, of the first edition of "the most important book on [embryology] to appear during the seventeenth century" (Garrison-Morton). In this work, "he rejected the prevailing doctrine of the preformation of the fetus, and advanced the theory, radical for its time, of epigenesis, that all living beings derive from the ovum 'by the gradual building up and aggregation of its parts'. Regarding Harvey's theory of epigenesis, Thomas Henry Huxley (1825-95) claimed this should "give him an even greater claim to the veneration of posterity than his better known discovery of the circulation of the blood" (Keynes, Bibliography, p. 47). Harvey reported a wealth of observations on many aspects of reproduction in a wide variety of species.

HARVEY, William
William Dugard, for Octavian Pulleyn, London, 1651. John Evelyn's copy, and possibly the unique copy containing the portrait of Harvey, of the first edition of "the most important book on [embryology] to appear during the seventeenth century" (Garrison-Morton). In this work, "he rejected the prevailing doctrine of the preformation of the fetus, and advanced the theory, radical for its time, of epigenesis, that all living beings derive from the ovum 'by the gradual building up and aggregation of its parts'. Regarding Harvey's theory of epigenesis, Thomas Henry Huxley (1825-95) claimed this should "give him an even greater claim to the veneration of posterity than his better known discovery of the circulation of the blood" (Keynes, Bibliography, p. 47). Harvey reported a wealth of observations on many aspects of reproduction in a wide variety of species. As representatives of vivipara, his attention was chiefly devoted to the deer, while that for ovipara was the domestic fowl. For Harvey, all life develops from the egg. This is expressed on the frontispiece which depicts the supreme Roman god Jupiter [Jove] opening a large egg, inscribed with the fundamental dictum of embryology, ex (upper half of egg shell) ovo omnia (lower half of egg shell), which translates as, 'from the egg everything,' and from which the liberated animals and insects fly .

Hobbes, Thomas
Andrew Crooke, London, 1651. First edition, first issue, with "head" ornament (rather than "bear") on letterpress title page, additional engraved title, and folding table. Wing 2246. Pforzheimer 491. Macdonald & Hargreaves 42. Folio, bound in full brown contemporary calf, red morocco spine label, raised bands. In near fine condition with some of the usual browning to the page edges. Housed in a full custom morocco clamshell box. A very nice example of this landmark work. Leviathan ranks as a classic western work on statecraft comparable to Machiavelli's The Prince. Written during the English Civil War (1642–1651), Leviathan argues for a social contract and rule by an absolute sovereign. Hobbes wrote that civil war and the brute situation of a state of nature. "This book produced a fermentation in English thought not surpassed until the advent of Darwinism. Its importance may be gauged by the long list of assailants it aroused. It was placed on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum 7 May 1703, though all Hobbes’s works had previously been condemned in toto, and it still remains a model of vigorous exposition, unsurpassed in the language" (Pforzheimer). "Hobbes had a fundamentally pessimistic view of human nature [which] had a powerful influence on the framers of the [American] Constitution During the early years of the Revolutionary period, American leaders found Locke’s revolutionary compact ideas more useful than Hobbes’ view of the unlimited authority of the state. But as the political and social experience of the 1780s seemed to bear out Hobbes’s pessimistic view that men are … [Click Below for Full Description]

Whilst Cromwell was occupied with his Army in Scotland when Prince Charles moved south of the border with his Forces, This move was anticipated by the Parliamentarians who responded by issuing this Act calling out the Militia to strengthen the English Army for when it was to meet that of Prince Charles. The Act was issued on the 12th August 1651 and the Battle of Worcester, the final battle of the English Civil War, was fought on the 3rd September 1651 with the defeat of Charles's army.

HOBBES, Thomas.
London: printed by J. G. for R. Royston, 1651. Duodecimo (147 x 84 mm). Rebound to style in speckled calf, spine unlettered, raised bands blind-tooled with floriate roll and edged with double fillet in blind, gilt roll to board edges. S4 bound in after B8 as recorded by MacDonald & Hargreaves. Occasional pencil side-ruling and marginalia, small spill burn to F1 touching engraved image, overall a very good copy. Engraved title page and 3 plates, woodcut initials. First edition in English of De cive (first published in Latin in 1642), the first full exposition of Hobbes's political thought to appear in print and the work which "established Hobbes's reputation among select intellectual circles" (ODNB). Hobbes wrote De cive ("On the citizen") as the third section of a planned three-part treatise on the elements of philosophy, although the first two parts, De corpore and De homine, were in fact published several years after the appearance of De cive, in 1655 and 1658 respectively. De cive presented "his solution to the problem of moral conflict, a solution in which politics came to the rescue of ethics. The book begins with an account of the state of nature, that is, in a situation without civil government. It has often been supposed that Hobbes believed that conflict arises from man's inherent selfishness, but this is a mistaken interpretation. Selfishness or self-concern is a neutral principle: men in well-functioning society are as selfish as those outside it. Hobbes made this point clear 'it does not follow from this principle that men are evil by nature '" (Tuck & Siverthor … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contemporary calf worn, hinges a bit weak and cracked, old bookplate and catalog entry pasted inside front cover, chipping to frontis edges, long note in an early hand on verso of frontis, browned and chipped around the edges early on, a few stains and ink marks not affecting sense, scattered finger marks, last few pages stained at bottom margin, notes to rear blank; still, about very good overall and with the often lacking frontis portrait. (12), 184, (18)pp. The third edition of Culpeper's translation of the Pharmacopoeia Londinensis, and his attempt to spread medical knowledge beyond the wealthy.

An important book in the history of British medicine often found in deplorable condition and usually lacking the portrait. Size: Folio. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo.

John Speed (1563-1612)
1651. Second edition of John Speed s famous world map, published in A Prospect of the Most Famous Parts of the World, with the date changed from 1626 to 1651 within the title and the imprint to Thomas Bassett and Richard Chiswell at lower right. The map is one of the first to show California as an island and one of the earliest published English world maps. The authorship of the map has always been uncertain and in all probability is not entirely the work of John Speed. Speed was seventy four years of age at the time and in 1626 was quoted on his poor health want of sight, liberty and conference . It therefore seems unlikely that with increasing blindness and his previous encyclopedic thoroughness in the publication of the Theatre, that he would have actively assisted Humble with this new world atlas. The map is embellished with cartes a figures, side panels with costumed figures, town plans and views in the upper and lower borders. This style was popularised by Blaeu, Visscher and Hondius and soon adopted by numerous competitors. The stylistic similarity to Speed s county maps in the Theatre, would have appealed to George Humble to incorporate such a map in the Prospect. The map is based on William Grent s rare world map published a year earlier and on Hondius s world map of 1617. It uses the same four portraits surrounding the spheres of Drake, Cavendish, Van der Noort and Magellan that appeared on Grent s map. It also incorporates the representations of the four allegorical figures representing Water, Earth, Air and Fire that appear on Hondius s map. The map depicts an e … [Click Below for Full Description]
