        Exercitationes de Generatione Animalium. Quibus accedent quædam de Partu: de Membranis ac humoribus Uteri: & de Conceptione. Autore Guilielmo Harveo Anglo, in Collegio Medicorum Londinensium Anatomes & Chirurgiæ Professore.

      Amsterdam: Apud Ludovicum Elzevirium, 1651. - Garrison-Morton describes this as "the most important work on [embryology] to appear during the 17th century," and notes as well that "the chapter on midwifery in this book is the first work on that subject to be written by an Englishman." The frontispiece--which is actually the title-page of the English issue of this edition--depicts Zeus seated on a pedestal within a temple, holding a large egg from which a variety of creatures are emerging. On the egg is engraved, "Ex ovo omnia," which neatly summarizes Harvey's treatise. This important plate is not often found in copies of the Elzevir edition. Thick 12mo, contemporary blind-ruled calf rebacked period style (by Philip Dusel), red morocco label, gilt lettering. Copper-engraved vignette title-page. Garrison & Morton 467 & 6146. A couple of tiny nicks on the spine; occasional dampstaining within; a highly attractive, fresh copy with good margins. Early edition, and probably the first of three editions issued in Amsterdam soon after the first edition, in quarto, was issued in London by Octavius Pulleyn earlier in 1651.

Marshall sculpsit, representing Charles with the crown of thorns in his right hand.

Much information is given concerning the mythology, the superstition and the occult lore surrounding snakes. Many of the plates depict mythological images as well as pagan deities, symbols and idols associated with snakes. Several anatomical plates of vipers are also included.

        Amerique Septentrionale

      N. Sanson & P. Mariette, Paris 1651 - The rare second state of this highly important map of North America by the founder of the French School of cartography. This very rare map is the most geographically progressive portrayal of the continent made at its time, and was not superseded until Vincenzo Maria Coronelli's map of 1688. Importantly, it is the first map to depict the Great Lakes in a recognizable form, and the first to name Lake Ontario and Lake Superior. In his rendering of the region, Sanson benefited from having received a copy of The Jesuit Relations , published in Paris in 1649, a detailed account by French missionaries who had traveled in the region. Most notably, this included Father Paul Ragueneau's account of his visit to Niagara Falls and Jean Nicollet's discovery of Lake Michigan, "Lac des Puans," in 1634. Down the St. Lawrence River from the lakes, Montréal is named, the settlement having been founded by the Sieur de Maisonneuve in 1642. Elsewhere, to the north, a mysterious strait weaves over "New South Wales" on Hudson's Bay, terminating in the interior of the continent, a blank space labeled as "Mer Glaciale". This alludes to the existence of a much hoped-for Northwest Passage. On the eastern seaboard, the map notes "N[ouvelle] Amsterdam" in the place of present day New York, and is the first printed map to label "N[ouvelle] Suede," referring to the Swedish colony centered on Fort Christina, founded on the site of present-day Wilmington, Delaware in 1638. To the far southwest, Sanson based his depiction on the Father Alonso Benavides Memorial , a travel account of New Mexico, published in Madrid in 1630. It is the first printed map to label "S[anta] Fe" (which is incorrectly shown to be on the banks of the Rio Grande) and the domains of various native tribes such as the "Apache," "Navajo" and the "Taosij" (Taos). To the west, California is shown as a large island, and features some of the same nomenclature as found on Johannes de Laet's map of 1630. A striking aspect of the map is the sinusoidal projection employed by Sanson, that essentially places the globe on an elliptical graticule, creating a very pleasing aesthetic. The composition is finished by an extremely elegant Baroque title cartouche, featuring swags of fruit and vegetation. Nicholas Sanson was born in the town of Abbeville in Picardy. Something of a child prodigy, by the age of eighteen, he could already be found in Paris drafting his own maps. There he quickly rose to become Royal Geographer to Louis XIII in 1630. He maintained the position upon the ascension of the "Sun King" Louis XIV in 1643, and later served as tutor to the ambitious young monarch. In 1644, he formed a lucrative partnership with Paris publisher Pierre Mariette with the objective of producing a great atlas that could rival those of the Amsterdam houses, such as Blaeu and Jansson. The present map was devised as one of the most important maps in the atlas. The first state of the map was printed in 1650, and the present second state appeared a year later. The atlas itself, entitled Les Cartes Générales de toutes les parties du Monde was not finally assembled until 1658. It was however, a landmark moment in the history of French cartography, being the first folio atlas produced in that country. The extremely high quality of Sanson's work motivated other French mapmakers to improve the standard of their production. Sanson also greatly influenced Louis XIV's chief minister, Jean-Baptisite Colbert to heavily fund cartographic projects. This gave rise to a great French School of cartography that was to eventually wrest dominance of the mapmaking market from the Dutch by the 1680s. After Sanson's death in 1667, his work was continued by his sons, Guillaume (d.1703) and Adrian (d.1708). The first state of this map is extremely rare, with Burden citing but two copies in private American collections. This second state is also quite rare, and can be recognized by addition of a coastline north west of California, but with

        Poema heroico, Napoles recuperada por El Rei Don Alonso que dedica a la Magestad del Rei nuestro señor Don Felipe Quarto El Grande.

Engraved title-page, (16 ll.), 398 pp. 4°, later stiff vellum, green morocco label, text block edges sprinkled red. Small paper defect at foot of half-title. Minor marginal worming touching border and running heads, and affecting 3-4 letters of text per page on Xx1-Ddd3. Tissue repair, without loss, on Ddd3. Overall in slightly less than good condition. ---- FIRST EDITION of an epic poem celebrating the mid-fifteenth century conquest of Naples by the author's ancestor Alfonso V of Aragon. it was reprinted in 1658. This particular poem is noteworthy as an example of a rare genre and a precursor of eighteenth-century poetry, rather than as a thrilling narrative: Ticknor comments that the author aimed to conform to the safest epic models, but says @Napoles recuperada "seems to foreshadow some of the severe and impoverishing doctrines of the next century of Spanish literature, and is written with a squeamish nicety in the versification that still further impairs its spirit" (II, 501-2). Some copies have an additional errata leaf at the end.Borja y Aragon, who descended from the Borgia family as well as the royal house of Aragon, was Prince of Squillace in Italy.---- Palau 33126: calling for a half-title, engraved title, 16 ll., 398 pp., (1 l.).

        Il Boemondo, Ouero, Antiochia Difesa : Poema Heroico

      In Bologna : Per Carlo Zenero 1651 - First Edition. 12mo. [24], 515, [1] p., frontis. ; 15 cm. Bound in contemporary full vellum. Ink title to spine. 4 raised bands. Tight binding and cover. Light soiling to vellum. 4 pin prick size wormholes to spine. Deckled page ends. Minimal shelfwear. Early owner's name and wax seal remnant on title page. Remnant of wax seal has cause a little loss to title page. Clean, unmarked pages with minimal tanning. Ships daily. Written in the style of Tasso's landmark renaissance poem, La Gerusalemme Liberta, this book tells the story of Bohemond I of Antioch. Bohemond I, Prince of Taranto and Prince of Antioch, was one of the leaders of the First Crusade. The Crusade had no outright military leader, but instead was ruled by a committee of nobles. Bohemond was one of the most important of these leaders. From Constantinople to Antioch, Bohemond was the real leader of the First Crusade; and it says much for his leadership that the First Crusade succeeded in crossing Asia Minor, which the Crusade of 1101, the Second Crusade in 1147, and the Third Crusade in 1189 failed to accomplish. The poem tells of the exploits of Bohemond I of Hauteville, son of Robert Guiscard, who in 1098 headed the Christian armies during the victorious siege of Antioch. The advanced towards the city, culminating in the Battle of Dorilea, he was able to restrain the first shock of the Turks giving way to Godfrey of Bouillon, the hero of Tasso's Jerusalem, and arrive with reinforcements and then proceed to the Holy City.

        RELIQUIAE SACRAE CAROLINAE. Or THE WORKS OF THAT GREAT MONARCH AND GLORIOUS MARTYR KING CHARLES THE I.

      The Hague, printed by Samuell Browne, 1651.Collected together, and digested in order, according to their severall subjects, civil and sacred. Contains in the first part Concerning matters civil, His Majesty's Speeches, His Majesty's Messages for Peace, Letters etc, and in the second part Concerning matters sacred, the Eikon Basilike with separate title page printed red and black dated 1649 and Papers about Church Government and His Majesty's Prayers plus things relating to his death. The title page of the Eikon Basilike reads: THE PORUTRAICTURE (sic) OF HIS SACRED MAJESTIE IN HIS SOLITUDES AND SUFFERINGS. Together with His Majesties Praiers delivered to Doctor Juxon immediately before his death. Also His Majesties reasons, against the pretended jurisdiction of the High Court of Justice, which he intended to deliver in writing on Monday January 22, 1648. Small 8vo, 170 x 110 mm, 6¾ x 4¼ inches, frontispiece of the King with globe, folding frontispiece to Eikon Basilike showing King kneeling with crown of thorns in his right hand both engraved by William Marshall, oval portrait of the Prince of Wales at page 213, pages: [16], 1 - 276, [4], 1 - 247, 149 - 324 (the leap in pagination to page 149 for the Church Papers is recorded in the Contents section at the beginning of the book), LACKING THE EXPLANATION OF THE FRONTISPIECE AS OFTEN which should precede the folding frontispiece in the Eikon Basilike, a few mispaginations but text collated and guaranteed complete, bound in full antique leather, blind rules to covers and spine, gilt lettered morocco label. Binding very worn, corners showing board at tips, upper hinge cracked but upper cover still holding firmly, small chip at head of upper hinge, 3 small chips at tail of spine, 2 tiny holes in leather on lower cover, 1 on upper cover, pastedowns discoloured by glue, very faint browning to lower edge of frontispiece and general title page, offset from the front pastedown, contents clean and bright, 1 small lower corner torn off, 1 very small chip to an upper margin, 1 fore - edge margin slightly chipped due to paper flaw. Text block tight and firm. A good copy complete with all required illustrations. See Madan, A New Bibliography of the Eikon Basilike, page 72 No. 62 with an illustration of our Eikon Basilike title page on page 73. Madan No. 62 collates almost as our copy except that there are 17 pages after the Eikon and before the Church Papers which are not called for in our Contents list. The title page of the Eikon has the same misprint 'Porutraicture' but differs very slightly from ours: it has red decoration to the corners and 'Eikon Basilike' and 'Majesties' are printed lower than they are in our copy. According to Madan the Explanation of the Frontispiece is often lacking from this edition. Madan examines the question of the authorship of the Eikon Basilike in detail and comes to the conclusion that both Charles I and John Gauden were involved, Charles in providing the original manuscript material, Gauden for writing it up and making a book of it (see Madan, Appendix 1, pages 126 - 133).

Wenig ist über sein Leben bekannt, doch wissen wir, daß er von kurz nach 1640 bis um 1644 in Schweden und Norwegen reiste, wo er ausgiebig nach der Natur zeichnete. Die dort gewonnenen Landschaftsmotive verwandte er nach seiner Rückkehr in vielen seiner Arbeiten. Er war hauptsächlich als Zeichner und Radierer tätig. Ölgemälde finden sich in seinem Werk nicht viele. Seestücke sind in seinem Werk seltener und stammen aus seiner frühen Schaffenszeit.

      London: Du Gard for O. Pulleyn, 1651. London: Du Gard for O. Pulleyn, 1651. <p>"Ex Ovo Omnia"</p><p>Harvey, William (1578-1657). Exercitationes de generatione animalium. 4to. [28], 301, [1, errata]pp. Engraved frontispiece. London: Du-Gard for Octavian Pulleyn, 1651. 216 x 161 mm. Modern paneled calf, gilt-lettered spine. Frontispiece trimmed at outer margin (minimally affecting image), otherwise a fine copy.</P><p>First Edition. Harvey&#39;s De generatione animalium, containing the first fundamentally new theory of generation since antiquity, represents a major advance in the study of animal reproduction, ranking with the works of Fabrizio and Malpighi. Contemporary theories of generation, based on the work of Aristotle and Galen, had held that the fetus was formed by the action of semen on menstrual blood, but Harvey argued, based on his studies of developing chick and deer embryos, that all life arose from eggs (ex ovo omnia)-he even denied the possibility of spontaneous generation. Harvey also advocated an epigenetic theory of fetal development-"the additament of parts budding one out of another"-in contrast to the prevailing belief in preformation. Needham, in his History of Embryology (1934) stated that Harvey "handled the question of growth and differentiation better than any before, anticipating the ideas of the present century." De generatione animalium covers all aspects of conception and birth; its chapter on parturition was the first original work on the subject by an Englishman. Garrison-Morton 467. Keynes, Harvey, 34.

      London: Printed by R.W. for Gregory Moule , 1651. London: Printed by R.W. for Gregory Moule , 1651. - Best Copy in DecadesFirst Edition in EnglishOne of the Most Important and Influential Books on the OccultAGRIPPA, Henry Cornelius. Three Books of Occult Philosophy, written by Henry Cornelius Agrippa, of Nettesheim, Counseller to Charles the Fifth, emperor of Germany: and Judge of the Prerogative Court. Translated out of the Latin into the English Tongue by J. F. London: Printed by R.W. for Gregory Moule , 1651.First edition in English of Agrippa?s masterwork on the occult, originally published in Latin in 1533. Octavo (7 x 5 1/4 iin; 180 x 135 mm). [2, blank], [1, blank], [1, frontispiece], [1, encomium], [1, blank], [24], 583, [1, blank], [12, Index] pp. Engraved frontispiece portrait, seven text woodcut illustrations, numerous occult symbols, and a folding table of alchemical symbology. Woodcut initials and headpieces.Contemporary full calf, expertly rebacked with original spine laid-down. Four raised bands, red morocco spine label. Ownership signature of "Sam. Beecher / 1699" to preliminary leaf with his holograph notes in ink to rear free endpaper. A remarkable copy, internally clean, in its original contemporary binding.While there have been seventeen copies at auction over the last thirty-five years, all have had condition issues of one sort or another, many lacking the folding table. This is the best copy to reach the marketplace in decades.One of the most important and influential volumes ever written on the occult and esoteric philosophy."In the last half of 1509 and the first months of 1510, Cornelius Agrippa, known in his day as a Magician, gathered together all the Mystic lore he had obtained by the energy and ardour of youth and compiled it into [an early draft of] the elaborate system of Magic, in three books, known as Occult Philosophy The only English translation appeared in London in 1651" (Willis F. Whitehead, Preface to 1971 reprint)."Recent historical investigation assigns Agrippa a central place in the history of ideas of the Middle Ages. He is seen as characterizing the main line of intellectual development from Nicholas of Cusa to Sebastian Franck. Modern opinion evaluates him on the basis of his Platonic, Neoplatonic, and Hermetic influences ? primarily in the De occulta philosophia" (DSB)."De occulta philosophia is a defense of magic, by means of which men may come to knowledge of nature and God, and contains Agrippa?s idea of the universe with its three worlds or spheres [Elementary, Celestial, and Intellectual]? (Britannica).Agrippa?s influence "added impetus to Renaissance study of magic and injected his name into early Faust legends. In [De occulta philosophia] he explained the world in terms of cabalistic analyses of Hebrew letters and Pythagorean numerology and acclaimed magic as the best means to know God and nature" (New Britannica). First appearing in Latin in 1533, the book was translated into English by John French here, in 1651, and has, ever since, been a strong influence on the study of magic in the English-speaking world.Wing A789.

      Lyons - Philippi Borde, Laurentii Arnaudand Claudii Rigaud, 1651. Lyons - Philippi Borde, Laurentii Arnaudand Claudii Rigaud, 1651 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A very scarcework byJohn de Lugo (1583-1660), a Spanish Jesuit and Cardinal, was an eminent theologian of the Renaissance. Disputationes Scholasticae, et Morales, De Virtute, et Sacramento Penitentiae. Stem De Suffragiis, et Indulgentis. Opus Confessariis Omnibus Maxime Utile. [Discussions of Scholastic, and Morales, On the Power, he and the sacrament of penance. The Stem of the votes, and his pardon. A work useful to allconfessors. ]In Latin. Reprinted with past mistakes corrected. With a half title, two colour decorative, title and decorative head and tail pieces throughout. It is said that John de Lugo&#39;s lectures, even before being printed, were spread by copyists in other countries. When the General of the Society ordered him to print his works, he obeyed and without help had the material for the first three volumes prepared within five years (1633, 1636, 1638). The works of Juan de Lugo, some of which have never been printed, cover nearly the whole field of moral - and dogmatic theology. The first volume, De Incarnatione Domini (Lyons, 1633), of which the short preface is well worth reading to get an idea of de Lugo&#39;s method, came out in 1633. It was followed by De sacramentis in genere; De Venerabili Eucharisti Sacramento et de sacrosancto Miss sacrificio (Lyons, 1636); De Virtute et Sacramento poenitenti, de Suffragiis et Indulgentiis (Lyons, 1638); and De justitia et jure (Lyon, 1642), the work on which de Lugo&#39;s fame especially rested. In composition of this important treatise, he was greatly aided by his knowledge of law acquired in his younger days at Salamanca, and it was this work which he dedicated and presented to the pope in person and which may be said to have gained for him a cardinal&#39;s hat. What he intended in his writings was not to give a long treatise, exhaustive from every point of view; he wished only to open up a small river, to the ocean, without relating what others had said before him and without giving a series of opinions of previous writers or furnishing authors or quotations in number; he aimed at adding what he had found from his own reflection and deep meditation on each subject. Other features of his theological conceptions are the union he always maintains between moral and dogmatic theology, the latter being the support of the former, and the same treatment being applied to both, discussing thoroughly the principle on which the main points of the doctrine rest. Previous owner&#39;s ink inscription to title. Condition: In contemporaryleather with cords to front board. Externally, wornwithloss in places toboards and backstrip, joints starting.
