John Milton
TYPIS DU GARDIANIS. Londini: Typus Du Gardianis [Amsterdam: J. Jansson], 1651. First Edition, later issue. 12mo, recent marbled boards and endpapers, (xl) 330 pages, woodcut of Commonwealth arms at title page. Binding fine, text very firm, title page once detached and now on a stub, brief aging, few leaves with a few ink underlines, early ink notation on verso of title page, light foxing at few leaves at front and rear. Madan 9. One of a number of 12mo editions which followed the 4to and folio initial printings in 1651; several of the smaller versions were done by Elzevir (in Amsterdam or Leiden), although all continued with the London credit of Du Gardianis. The copy in this lot is the only 12mo edition with 330 text pages. "Milton was inordinately proud of this work, which brought him European fame - or notoriety - because it was an officially commissioned and effective 'defense of the English people' against an attack on the new Republic by one of Europe's greatest scholars, the learned Claudius Salmasius. "If it proved nothing else, it proved that the Puritans, widely considered uneducated, had some real scholars on their side. Milton, as spokesman for his country, believed it to be a reasoned defense of regicide (the execution of Charles I in 1649), an eloquent defense of liberty, and his best work in prose" - William Riley Parker.

Engraved title-page, (16 ll.), 398 pp. *** 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.).

Uncut copy of Elzevier´s Lucanus, with armorial binding and important Provenance. 1651. Amsterdam. Ioannem Ianssonium. In 12vo (145 mm x 82 mm). 377 + 3 ff. Elegant 19th century red morocco, signed by Amand, boards with arms stamped in gilt on center, spine with raised bands and lettered in gilt, back cover lightly soiled. An entirely uncut copy, pages gently browned, first blank, with bookplate, loose. Extremely rare uncut Elzevier of the Lucanus´s Pharsalia, annotated by Grotius and Farnabius. The arms on cover belong to Count Joseph de Lagondie with the same pattern on ex libris. The author was born in Córdoba (Spain) in the first half of the 1st century, grandson of Marco Anneo Séneca and nephew of the great Lucio Anneo Seneca. Spent his childhood in Rome, where he received his education, he showed a great tenacity from an early age, author of three compositions at the age of 16. At first in Neron´s ?cohors amicorum?, he then participated in the Pison plot against him, which eventually brought him the death penalty, which he carried out by opening his veins and reciting verses whilst he died. Amongst his works we count the Farsalia, an epopee narrating the civil wars between Ceasar and Pompey. Provenance; ex libris on front pastedown from Georges Montandon; and ex libris from Count Joseph de Lagondie on first blank [same crest for arms on binding]. Brunet, III, 1200. Palau, 143195.

Lyde (Leiden), Elsevier, 1651.. 12 Bl., 805 (recte 807) S. Pgt. der Zeit über 4 durchzogenen Bünden, hs. Rückentitel.. Philippe Duplessis-Mornay, eigentlich Philippe de Mornay, Seigneur du Plessis-Marly, auch genannt Philippe Mornay Du Plessis (* 5. November 1549 zu Buhy in der Normandie; 11. November 1623 in La Foret-sur-Sevre) war ein reformierter Theologe und Staatsmann aus Frankreich. Von seinem streng katholischen Vater für den geistlichen Stand bestimmt und im College de Lisieux zu Paris unterrichtet, trat er nach dessen Tod 1560 zum protestantischen Glauben über. Seine Karriere als politischer Schriftsteller und Diplomat begann 1571 mit der Schrift Dissertation sur l'eglise visible. Im folgenden Jahr war er in Geheimmission für Admiral de Coligny tätig; er unterhandelte mit Wilhelm von Oranien. Nach der Bartholomäusnacht, der er nur knapp mit Hilfe eines katholischen Freundes entkam, suchte er Unterschlupf in England. 1575 war er als Verwalter der Finanzen von Navarra in die Dienste Heinrichs I. von Navarra getreten. Im Frühjahr 1589 war er als Vermittler verantwortlich für die Aussöhnung von König Heinrich III. und Heinrich von Navarra. Als dieser 1589 als Heinrich IV. auf den Thron von Frankreich erhoben war, wurde Duplessis-Mornay zum Staatsrat und später zum Gouverneur von Saumur ernannte. Hier errichtete Duplessis-Mornay eine protestantische Akademie, die bis zu ihrer Aufhebung durch Ludwig XIV. im Jahr 1683 von großem Einfluss war. 1598 veröffentlichte er eine lange vorbereitete Schrift über die Eucharistie aus calvinistischer Sicht "De L'institution, usage et … [Click Below for Full Description]

SANSON d'Abbevile, Nicolas (1600-67)
Paris: N. Sanson & P. Mariette, 1651. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour. 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 d … [Click Below for Full Description]

Donne, John
Printed: 1651. 1573-1631 Quarto, 7 x 5.2 inches. First edition. A-Z4, Aa-Ss4. Lacking the blanks A1 and Ss4. This copy lacks the portrait of Donne. This copy is bound in full contemporary polished calf boards with gilt-tooled edges; the binding has been rebacked and bears an early label. The edges of the leaves are speckled red. The spine leather is chipped and worn, with cracks developing down the center of the spine and at the joints. The volume would benefit from rebinding. The contents, on the other hand, are clean and tight, the paper generally in excellent condition. Notwithstanding the missing portrait, this is a very good copy. From the Damgard-Nielsen collection of John Donne, with his small bookplate inside the front board and his signature on the front free end leaf. This copy is bound in seventeenth century sheep. Published posthumously by the poet's son, John Donne (1604-1662), this collection contains 129 letters, written between December 1600 (a year before Donne's marriage to Anne More) and March 1631 (two months before his death). "'In no other kind of conveyance,' Donne once told Goodyer, 'can we find so perfect a Character of a man as in his Letters'. These letters provide valuable information about Donne's situation and frame of mind at the time of the poems that many readers consider his greatest achievements -the 'Anniversaries', the 'Holy Sonnets', many of the verse letters and 'A Litanie'. Moreover, the letters provide an even fuller account of the periods of intense mental and physical duress during the composition of Donne's equally important pros … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hotham (1615-1672?], university preacher, proctor, and fellow of Peterhouse, Cambridge, in 1650 preached against the "Engagement" and was forbidden to raise the subject again. He petitioned the committee for the reformation of the university against Dr. Lazarus Seaman, master of Peterhouse. Dissatisfied with the results, he published his Petition, along with some caustic remarks concerning the committee. He was soon after deprived of his fellowship.

Printed: 1651. 1611-1643 Octavo, 6.5 x 4.25 inches. First edition. [Portrait]1, [a]-b8, *14 , *8, Ù4, **8, ***14, *10, a-e8, f4, g-k8, A-T8, U3, U8, X2, with leaf *11 in cancelled state as usual and showing the original stub. Leaves **7 and U1-3 appear to be in uncancelled state with no evidence of stubs, otherwise this collation matches that described by Evans. This copy is bound in modern butterscotch calf with a gilt spine, in period style. Cartwright enjoyed a considerable success among his contemporaries but posterity has been less kind and his work is only known to students of seventeenth century literature. He was educated at Westminster School and went up to Christ Church, Oxford, in 1628; he spent the rest of his short life there. He wrote four plays, intended for academic performance: The Ordinary or The City Cozener (1634) shows clearly the influence of Ben Jonson; The Lady Errant, The Royall Slave, and The Siege or Love's Convert were published in 1651. The Royall Slave, with designs by Inigo Jones and music by Henry Lawes, was acted for King Charles I and Henrietta Maria at Oxford in 1636 and proved a great success. Cartwright took holy orders in 1638 and wrote no more plays but he became a celebrated preacher; in 1642 he became reader in metaphysics to the university. A Royalist, Cartwright preached at Oxford before the king after the Battle of Edgehill. The edition of his works published in 1651 contained 51 commendatory verses by writers of the day, including Izaak Walton and Henry Vaughan. The Plays and Poems of William Cartwright were collected and … [Click Below for Full Description]

Also includes 24 engraved plates by Giovanni Georgi - most of which are a full page. Lacks blank free end papers. Interior generally clean with mild scattered marginal foxing.

Bottom corner tip of the title page restored (10 x 14 mm). Original full vellum binding (rubbed, usual age-toning) with later gilt title on spine. Upper hinges near the head cap strengthened. Marco Auelio Severino (1580-1656) was a distinguished Italian anatomist and surgeon. In 1610 he was made Professor of Anatomy and Surgery at Naples. His work "Vipera pythia" discusses poisonous snakes, snake anatomy, snake venom, and the medicinal properties and virtues of snakes. 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.

Amsterdam, Ludwig Elsevier, 1651. With engr. allegorical title. 568 pp., 4 unn. leaves (last blank). 12mo. Contemp. vellum, dated 1659. Amsterdam, Ludwig Elsevier, 1651. Printed in the same year as the London first edition. "The most important book on the subject to appear in the 17th century" (Garrison/M.). Four issues were printed in Amsterdam, this is the second one. Elzevier printed in 1651 two slightly different editions, one for the English market with engr. title and imprint "London, O. Pulleyn, 1651", and the present one for the continental market with engraved title and imprint "Amstelodami, Ludivicum Elzevirium, 1651". These issues were immediately reprinted by Elsevier from the first London edition of the same year. This edition contains the famous engraved title-page showing Jove seated on a pedestal, opening an egg to release animals, insects, and plants. Even if Harvey (1578-1657) had not discovered the circulation of the blood, this present work "De generatione" is a remarkable masterpiece on embryology, conception, and birth, overthrowing Galenic-Aristotelian ideas. It deals with the comparative anatomy of reproductive organs, the physiology of reproduction, and the day-to-day development of the chick in the egg. "The chapter on midwifery in this book is the first work on that subject to be written by an Englishman" (Garrison/M.). - Wellcome III, 220; Osler 711; this ed. not in Eimas, Heirs of Hippocrates; Waller 4120; cf.

DESCARTES François René
Chez Henry le Gras et Edme pepingu?A Paris: Chez Henry le Gras et Edme pepingué, 1651. relié. In 4 (15,5x20cm). Nouvelle édition de cette première traduction française par l'abbé Claude PIcot, qui parut pour la première fois en 1647. Illustrée dun frontispice avec encadrement de feuillages (ne se trouvant pas dans l'édition de 1647) et de 20 planches en fin de volume de physique. L'édition latine a été éditée par Elzevier en 1644. Plein Parchemin d'époque. Dos lisse avec titre et date à la plume. Tâches brunes sur le velin. Une mouillure jaune en marge haute sur les derniers feuillets. Manque pages de gardes contrecollées sur le parchemin. Un manque sur le plat inférieur. C'est en 1644 que Descartes écrivit en latin les Principa Philosophiae, avec le soucis de clarifier et de donner un base saine et rigoureuse à la philosophie, d'en ériger les fondements inébranlables. Le premier postulat de la recherche philosophique, c'est la raison, et sa méthode : la déduction. Le projet cartésien est un projet de science universelle, et non pas seulement philosophique. Les Principia font suite au Discours de la méthode (1636) et aux Méditations pétaphysiques (1641). L'ambition de l'ouvrage est prodigieux, Descartes veut fournir une nouvelle métaphysique reposant sur le cogito, qui engendre une nouvelle classification des connaissances et une morale neuve, réflexion, qui par la révolution qu'elle opère, donnera naissance au siècle des Lumières. - Chez Henry le Gras et Edme pepingué, A Paris _1651, In 4 (15,5x20cm), (58) 486pp. (1) 20pl., Un Vol. r … [Click Below for Full Description]

Da Vinci Leonardo
Paris: Jacques Langlois, 1651. First edition, French language issue, published by the same publisher at the same time as the first in Italian. The first edition of Da Vinci’s great Treatise on Painting, the first published work of Leonardo. 56 engraved illustrations and diagrams within text, additional engraved title with portrait, vignette titlepage, and many engraved head- and tail-pieces. Tall 4to, in contemporary calf, rebacked and restored to period style with red morocco label on spine, endpapers renewed. xviii, 128. A scarce and desirable copy with mild mellowing and very light antique staining primarily in the margins. FIRST EDITION OF THE MOST PRECIOUS TREATISE EVER PUBLISHED ON THE ART OF DRAWING. It was during his time in the service of the Duke of Sforza that Da Vinci developed his theories of the supremacy of painting, having the opportunity to associate with philosophers and men of letters on an equal basis. 'This theory was incorporated into the Treatise on Painting compiled by Leonardo's disciple Francesco Melzi, who however omitted Leonardo's definitions of the geometric 'principles’ of point, line, and, area - definitions that Leonardo had drawn up with great care, since he wished them to be read by mathematicians rather than artists' (DSB).<br> The treatise is a major source of Leonardo's works on such topics as perspective, colour, light and shadow, as well as on plant physiology and human anatomical studies.

Theologie - Mornay, Phillippes de (Sieur du Plesis Marly).
Lyde (Leiden), Elsevier, 1651. 12 Bl., 805 (recte 807) S. Pgt. der Zeit über 4 durchzogenen Bünden, hs. Rückentitel. Philippe Duplessis-Mornay, eigentlich Philippe de Mornay, Seigneur du Plessis–Marly, auch genannt Philippe Mornay Du Plessis (* 5. November 1549 zu Buhy in der Normandie; 11. November 1623 in La Forêt-sur-Sêvre) war ein reformierter Theologe und Staatsmann aus Frankreich. Von seinem streng katholischen Vater für den geistlichen Stand bestimmt und im College de Lisieux zu Paris unterrichtet, trat er nach dessen Tod 1560 zum protestantischen Glauben über. Seine Karriere als politischer Schriftsteller und Diplomat begann 1571 mit der Schrift Dissertation sur l'église visible. Im folgenden Jahr war er in Geheimmission für Admiral de Coligny tätig; er unterhandelte mit Wilhelm von Oranien. Nach der Bartholomäusnacht, der er nur knapp mit Hilfe eines katholischen Freundes entkam, suchte er Unterschlupf in England. 1575 war er als Verwalter der Finanzen von Navarra in die Dienste Heinrichs I. von Navarra getreten. Im Frühjahr 1589 war er als Vermittler verantwortlich für die Aussöhnung von König Heinrich III. und Heinrich von Navarra. Als dieser 1589 als Heinrich IV. auf den Thron von Frankreich erhoben war, wurde Duplessis-Mornay zum Staatsrat und später zum Gouverneur von Saumur ernannte. Hier errichtete Duplessis-Mornay eine protestantische Akademie, die bis zu ihrer Aufhebung durch Ludwig XIV. im Jahr 1683 von großem Einfluss war. 1598 veröffentlichte er eine lange vorbereitete Schrift über die Eucharistie aus calvinistischer Sicht „De L'institution, usage et do … [Click Below for Full Description]
