This work is a translation and adaptation of Rojas Zorrill's Obligados y ofendidos y Gorron de Salamanca. (1640). L'Escolier de Salamanque, set in Toledo, concerns the seduction of an innocent girl by a local Count. The brother of the girl Pedre, a student from Salamanca who is sent to revenge the seduction, becomes caught in a three-times crossways conflict which becomes a powerful drama when the young man is trapped in an artificial code of honor.

FLEURY DE BELLINGEN
Lyon, Besson 1655 - In-12 [158 x 97 mm] de frontispice, (8), 228, (10) pp. Demi-percaline verte. (Relié vers 1900.) Recueil et explications de proverbes, mis sous la forme d'un dialogue entre un manant et un philosophe. (On pense à Jacques le Fataliste !) Si, "Il ne faut que deux poings pour faire taire une femme", est facilement compréhensible, "Merde à votre gorge, marchand de Paris" passe aujourd'hui pour énigmatique, même à un marchand de livres de Paris. "Ouvrage curieux et qui est fort recherché. . Fleury de Bellingen avait fait paraître à La Haye, dès l'année 1653, un petit recueil intitulé 'Les premiers essais de proverbes'. Deux ans plus tard ce livre fut reproduit à Paris, avec quelques changements, sous le titre 'Les Illustres proverbes historiques'. . Il en existe aussi une édition de Lyon, Besson, sans date." Brunet III, 408-409. Bellingen était professeur de français en Hollande. L'ouvrage a aussi été attribué au Comte de Cramail. Exemplaire complet de la belle planche gravée dépliante qui manque souvent. Charles Nodier possédait un exemplaire de l'édition parisienne : "Ce joli exemplaire est orné d'une grande planche pliée que je n'ai jamais vue dans aucun autre et qui représente une vingtaine de proverbes en action, assez joliment gravés". Nodier, Mélanges tirés d'une petite bibliothèque, 1929, pp. 128.

"Indeed Craig was the first systematic writer on law in Scotland. The Jus Feudale is not a mere textbook of the law of land rights, but is a learned disquisition upon a great social system. The opening chapters are devoted to an examination of the sources of law in general, and trace the history and development of the Civil, Canon and Feudal laws. If Craig had accomplished no more than that he would have been entitled to a foremost place amongst our jurists, for unquestionably the form of his book not only exemplified the philosophical outlook of the learned Scots lawyer, but provided a model of construction and tr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Iaponia Regnum, ,1655. Coppermap, published by J. Blaeu Amsterdam, anno 1655, old coloured in outline, size of the map: 41,5 x 56,5 cm., little brwonish, little crack on upper margin. Korea being correctly drawn as a peninsula for the first time. This map was the standart map up to the 18 century. From M. Martini, "Novus Atlas Sinensis", an italian Jesuit, the first european Atlas of China and Japan. Reference: Map Collectors Circle, Nr. 36, 21: "The subdivisions of the Kingdom are shown by means of dotted lines; Korea being correctly drawn as a peninsula for the first time. This was to remain the standart form of Japan until the eighteenth century and although replaced by the maps of Reland and Kaempfer it is in its outline closer to the true shape of Japan than either of these or indeed any printed map before the nineteenth century. It was compiled by Father Martino Martini, an Italian Jesuit, and appears in Blaeu's Atlas Sinensis, the first European atlas of China. Of the two general maps one if of Japan. Father Martini (1614-1661) went to China as a young man and became the Superior at Hang-Chow. In 1651 he left for Rome but took three years on an eventful journey home. His arrival was described by Blaeu: "The Reverend Father Martinus Martinius comes from India, and brings with him the figurations and descriptions of the Empire of China. He insists that I print and publish these. Therefore i leave off all other things for the time being, in order to push forward this work ". After a short stay in Europe Martini returned to China and died in Hang-chow....".

MERIAN, MATTHAEUS, Illustrator. ZEILLER, MARTIN
Frankfurt: C. Merian, 1655-61. FIRST EDITIONS OF ALL PARTS. Written, like a number of Merian books, by the German school official and miscellaneous author Zeiller (1589-1661), this beautifully illustrated publication is the 17th and largest of the splendid and justly celebrated "Topographia" series of books initiated by Merian (1593-1650), the famous Swiss engraver who became head of one of the prominent Frankfurt publishing houses of the period. The series, continued by Merian's heirs to a grand total of some 30 folio volumes issued between 1642-88, contains the largest number of engraved views of towns, villages, and castles ever assembled. It is of primary importance for the knowledge of Central European topography of the baroque era, and it is of great interest because of the very considerable artistic value of its engravings. As with all of the Merian topographical works, this one is filled with views of many walled cities and towns that appear to be remarkable in the fidelity of their historical detail, impressive in the crystalline vividness of their engraved line, and pleasing emotionally in the luminous tranquility they project. In the present copy, these features seem to be heightened, both because there are considerably more images here than in the typical "Topographia" item and because of the richness of the engraved impressions. The plates are executed with considerable skill and charm, with the artist including details of costume and touches of daily life whenever scale permits.

Ulm: Johann Görlin, 1655 Book. Near Fine. Hardcover. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio (395x310 mm). Engraved title-page and 51 unfolded engraved plates of celestial constellations by Alexander Mair. Later full calf, spine titled in gilt, old endpapers included, pastedowns renewed. Margins of title and some plates frayed, very little browning and spotting, title and few plates with repaired marginal tears to fold, last chart with marginal worming. Provenance: ex bibliotheca Semin. St. Sulpitii (ink inscription to rear endpaper). A fine copy of a rare star atlas. ----- Brown pp. 19-25; Warner, Sky explored, pp. 18-19, 1a; Norman 142; Honeyman 246; DSB I, 530 (ref. to 1603 or 1661 editions). - The very rare fourth edition of Bayer's Uranometria (first published in 1603), the first atlas to cover the entire celestial sphere, in fifty-one star charts, including one containing twelve new constellations unknown to Ptolemy. The illustrations are based on Jacob de Gheyn's designs for the Grotius edition of Aratus, published in Leiden in 1600. Johann Bayer (1572-1625) practised as a lawyer in Augsburg, but his principal interest was in the rapidly developing field of astronomy. His most important innovation was a new system of identifying all stars (prior to the invention of the telescope) by Greek and Roman letters, known today as the Bayer designation. The 1655 edition is much rarer than the 1661 edition..

for Tho[mas] Newcomb, and are to be sold by Humphrey Moseley,, London. An expanded version of Maddison's Englands looking in and out (1640). Maddison, a forward looking and enterprising landlord was a vocal advocate for the regulation of the money markets, arguing that foreign exchangers and unscrupulous merchants had devalued the currency for personal gain. He developed his ideas in the work above mentioned to include the demand that an accurate account be kept and made available of the balance of trade. "In 1655 he published an updated version of his 1640 tract entitled Great Britain's remembrancer, looking in and out; tending to the increase of the monies of the Commonwealth. Presented to his highness the lord protector and to the high court of parliament now assembled (1655). His recent experience of office can account for new calls for a bank, a council for the mint, and free ports, but his general economic views remained unchanged" (ODNB). 4to (181 × 135 mm), pp. [iv], 42. Title and latter leaves slightly soiled, title with small rubbed hole (not affecting text) to inner margin, minor loss to upper forecorner. Disbound. A good copy. [Wing M245.]
