Published by Nicolaj Angeli Tinaffi, Rome, 1655. A tactile antique calf binding with extensive floral/fan gilt design, including some pointillé finish, to both boards and spine completed with gauffered gilt finish to all edges. In lovely firm condition, having previously been professionally restored on the spine and around the edges as seen in photos. Black & red text, illustrated with wood engraving and containing 30 pages manuscript bound at rear. In very good condition with a couple of marks and scuffing to boards, remainders of original clasp/ to upper board, slight fading to gilt edges and a touch of browning and offsetting to pages but overall a beautiful example of 17th century binding. From the Bookbinding and the Conservation of Books - A Dictionary of Descriptive Terminology, pointillé is a luxurious style of finishing consisting of dotted lines and curves impressed on the covers of a book. In the first half of the 17th century, pointillé was used by numerous French bookbinders and/or gilders, including Florimond Badier and Macé Ruette, although in terms of sheer magnificence of execution, it reached its pinnacle earlier in the bindings associated with the name (LE) GASCON.

USSHER, James
Londini: prostant vaenales apud Johannem Crook, 1655. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "What is it which all men especially desire? Eternal life and happiness?" ¬ - James Ussher James Ussher was an early 17th-century Archbishop in the Church of Ireland who is most remembered for giving an exact date to the beginning of creation. His full body of work includes letters, sermons, dissertations, and exegesis but this work focuses solely on improving the Christians life and strengthening their faith. In 1655, Ussher published his final book - 'De Graeca Septuaginta Interpretum Versione'. This work was his interpretation and commentary on the Septuagint in which he sought to prove the validity of the Greek compared to the Hebrew texts of the Old Testament. This tome is Ussher's commentary on the book Esther. [Attributes: First Edition]

1655. GALILEO Galilei Il saggiatore nel quale con bilancia esquisita e giusta si ponderano le cose contenute nella Libra astronomica e filosofica di Lotario Sarsi Sigensano scritto in forma di lettera all'ill.mo et reuer.mo mons.re D. Virginio Cesarini acc.o linceo. In Bologna, Per gli HH. del Dozza, 1655. In-4°, pp. (8), 179, (1), illustrazioni xilografiche n.t., legatura in piena pergamena dell'epoca con titolo manoscritto al dorso. Questa edizione è tratta dal secondo volume della prima rara e ricercata edizione dell'opera omnia curata da Carlo Manolessi e da lui dedicata al granduca di Toscana Ferdinando II de' Medici, con proprio frontespizio e numerazione. Spesso venduti separatamente. Le opere di Galileo nelle edizioni del Dozza sono le più famose e stimate tra quelle pubblicate ancora vivente l'autore. Gamba, 482 Nato in risposta alla Libra astronomica ac philosophica (1619) del gesuita Orazio Grassi, celato sotto lo pseudonimo di Lotario Sarsi, Il saggiatore è l'opera più significativa all'interno della lunga controversia sulle comete, corsa fra Galileo e la Compagnia dopo l'osservazione di tre di esse, apparse fra il 1618 e il 1619. Si trattava di fatto del conflitto fra due diversi sistemi del mondo: non più Copernico contro Tolomeo, palesemente smascherato nelle sue falsità dalle osservazioni astronomiche pubblicate da Galileo nel Sidereus nuncius, ma Copernico contro l'elio-geocentrismo di Tycho Brahe, sulle cui posizioni gli astronomi gesuiti avevano riparato.

BLAEU, Johannes.
Amsterdam, 1655, Dutch edition. Folio; full vellum; two coloured engr. titles with gold highlights, pp. [iv] + 212 + 40 + xviii + [20]; 17 maps in excellent original colour. A very fine example of Blaeu's influential Atlas of China, the first Western atlas devoted to that country, with maps compiled by Father Martino Martini (1614-61), a Jesuit missionary. In the preface Martini claimed to have visited seven of the fifteen Chinese provinces, although he does not say which ones. His maps (a general map of China and Japan, 15 provinces and a more detailed map of Japan) were far in advance of any available in the West, and this atlas remained the standard georgraphical work on China until 1737, when D'Anville published his 'Atlas de la Chine'. KOEMAN: Bl 57, as part of the 'Atlas Major'.

Grotius, Hugo
Printed for T. Warren and William Lee, London, 1655. First edition in English of Grotius' foundational work on international law. Small octavo, bound in full contemporary calf with red morocco spine label lettered in gilt, engraved frontispiece portrait of the author. In very good condition. Rare, with no other examples appearing at auction in the last 80 years. A pre-eminent contributor to international legal doctrine, Hugo Grotius was an influential Dutch jurist, philosopher, and theologian. In this momentous work, Grotius describes situations in which war is a valid tool of law enforcement and outlines principles for the use of force. Though based on Christian natural law, Grotius advances the novel argument that his system would still be valid if it lacked a divine basis. In this regard he points to the future by moving international law in a secular direction. Barksdale's translation, the first in English, includes an original biographical sketch of Grotius. This edition "is perceived to be part of a larger movement in England aimed partly at setting out an ideological alternative to reformation proposals under discussion and to clarifying the relations between civil and ecclesiastical authority in England" (Butler, xii).

Hammond wrote this work in response to Cawdry's attack on the 'three little tracts of superstition, will-worship and festivals.' Therefore, this work is pro-superstition. Cawdry, or Cawdrey, was one of the leading members of the Westminster Assembly. Upon the Restoration it was recommended to Lord Clarendon for a bishopric but upon his refusal to submit to the Act of Uniformity he was ejected. Many of his works were against the Anglicans and Independents. His tone was incendiary and his writings were viewed as controversial by many.

Ouvrage orné de 42 gravures. Amarille à Titire, Mlle de Scudéry..

AUGUSTINE, of Hippo
Paris: Pierre Le Petit, 1655. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Augustine of Hippo was a 5th-century early Christian church philosopher and theologian. While most-known for his work 'City of God', he also wrote many other treatises on aspects of the Christian faith. His stance on free will vs predestination and fatalism was supported by and still is supported by, the Catholic Church, as his teachings on free will are consistent with modern doctrine. 'City of God' was a response to the assertions that the rise of Christianity was the cause of the decline of Rome. In this work, Augustine discusses the existence of God and evil, an all-knowing God, original sin, and Christian doctrines. Augustine sought to denounce much of the magic and pagan worship that was rampant throughout the known world. This rare 1655 French edition was edited by Rene de Ceriziers and includes a full-page portrait of Jacques le Coigneux, president of Parliament.

CAMOENS, Luis de.
London: Humphrey Moseley, 1655. Folio (276 x 169 mm). Early polished calf, spine with five raised bands, red morocco label. Early 20th-century bookplate of Erroll Hay; later book label of Eric Gerald Stanley (1923-2018), Rawlinson and Bosworth Professor of Anglo-Saxon and Fellow of Pembroke College, Oxford. Skilful restoration of extremities, a little stripping to boards, leaves A2-4 a little frayed in fore margin not affecting text, a few scattered marks internally, overall a very good copy. With 3 engraved portraits, as issued, that of Prince Henry of Portugal, folding, trimmed (slight loss of fore edge) and mounted as frontispiece, portrait of Camoens with verses, and of Vasco da Gama by Cross (slightly trimmed). First edition in English of Os Lusíadas (1572), the epic poem describing Portugal's rise from obscurity to greatness.

Boies Penrose calls The Luciad "one of the noblest epics" and "the national poem par excellence and the supreme epic of Portugal's conquests in the East" (Travel and Discovery in the Renaissance 1420-1620, New York, 1962, pp. 92 and 359). The English translator, Sir Richard Fanshawe, part of the grouping often called the cavalier poets, was an accomplished linguist, who spent a good deal of tim … [Click Below for Full Description]
