1655. Sheppard's Plan to Reform Conveyancing Sheppard, William [fl. 1660]. The President of Presidents. Or, One General President for Common Assurances by Deeds: Wherein There is Contained an Extract or Abridgment of All the Readings and Presidents Thereof Extant. Of Singular Use and Profit to All Men.

Light browning to text, occasional faint dampstaining to foot of text block, two struck-through early owner signatures and later signature dated 1797 to head of title page, brief manuscript index in hand of 1797 signer to rear free endpaper. * First edition. Active in the Protectorate, where he was Cromwell's legal advisor, Sheppard aimed to reform English common law. Ahead of his time in many ways, many of his proposals anticipate changes that were adopted in the nineteenth century, especially in the Juridicature acts of 1875-78. The Presidents of Presidents is a novel guide that proposed a system of conveyances based on a uniform model. Sheppard promotes this standardized plan as a way to better secure property rights by eliminating the ambiguity introduced by local practices. According to his biographer, Nancy Matthews, this work remains "an important contr … [Click Below for Full Description]

"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 S … [Click Below for Full Description]

TOMASI Tomaso.
Appresso Gio. Bapt. Lucio Vero, In Monte Chiaro, 1655. Prima edizione. Cm.21,5x16,2. Pg.(12), 303, (1). Legatura coeva in piena pelle, genuina ma con marcate tracce di consunzione alle cerniere ed agli ultimi due scomparti in cui il dorso è diviso. Titoli e fregi decorativi in oro al dorso. Al frontespizio vignetta calcografica con anello con diamante e il motto Nil me durius". Alcune carte leggermente brunite. Capilettera e cartigli ornamentali. Edizione originale, non comune, della prima esaustiva biografia di Cesare Borgia (Roma, 1475-1507), il celebre Valentino reso immortale da Machiavelli ne "Il Principe". Ne è autore il religioso marchigiano Tommaso Tommasi (Pesaro, 1608-1658), e l'opera fu prontamente messa all'indice. Per lungo tempo tale paternità, come pure il luogo di stampa, sono risultati incerti, attribuendo la prima a Gregorio Leti (Milano, 1630-1701) e individuando come fittizia l'indicazione "Montechiaro", mentre è assodato che il Leti curò la seconda edizione del 1670 e che il volume fu effettivamente impresso a Montechiaro nell'Astigiano. > Vinciana, 666, "Edizione originale assai rara e pregiata, perché probabilmente l'unico libro stampato a Monte Chiaro ? L'opera fu creduta per lungo tempo di Gregorio Leti, ma il Fassò porta delle definitive prove per dimostrare che il Tomasi, realmente esistito, ne fu l'Autore". Melzi, III, 233, "Dal catalogo Farsetti assegnasi per vero autore di questa Vita Gregorio Leti, che sembra essersi voluto occultare sotto il nome finto di Tommaso Tommasi.

VOYSIN, Daniel.

V.A.S. stands for "Votre Altesse Sérénissime" (Your Serene Highness ), which in this case is Louis-Auguste de Bourbon, duc du Maine (1670-1736), the favourite (legitimised) son of the French king Louis XIV and his official mistress, Madame de Montespan, whose name is noted twice in another, contemporary hand. Voysin requests to have a new artillery officer appointed, for the troops in Bouchain, France. This would concerns Louis-Auguste's own regiment, the "Regiment du Maine, taking part of the War of the Spanish Succession and sent in 1710 to Flanders.Old folds, and some foxing and minor tears along the extremities, otherwise good.

The second part gives a general description of the Chinese empire, including botany and zoology. The first part covers the East Indies and Southeast Asia before going on to China itself. Japan, Korea and Formosa appear as well.With modern bookplate of J. Berk. Slightly browned throughout, some plates reinforced. Rebacked, as noted, with the original backstrip laid down.l Cordier, Sinica, col. 2344; Howgego, to 1800, G-85, N-25; cf. Walravens, China illustrata, pp. 142-144.

Karl X Gustav.
Utan ort, (1655?). (33,3 x 28,3 cm.) Ryttarporträtt av Karl X Gustaf i helfigur, med ett ryttarslag i bakgrunden. Kungen lyfter med höger hand sitt glänsande svärd, hatten med strutsfjädrar. Under bilden i mitten "Carolus Gustavus D. G. Rex Svecorum" och på sidorna om detta en dikt signerad I.M.S: "Wo sich der Starcke Held von Mitternacht hinwendt...". Med råkanter med lätta revor. Handskriven kommentar med bläck, liten reva och fuktrand i ytterkant. HAB A19949. Ovanligt porträtt av Karl X Gustaf i ett fint avdrag, utkommen lagom till det inledningsvis framgångsrika fälttågen i Polen. I dikten är det förstås, precis som i hyllningarna till Gustav II Adolf, trosförsvararen som framhålls. "Wo sich der starcke Held von Mitternacht hinwendt, Da siehet man sein Schwert gantz Maiestätisch blinken: Von solchen straalen wird deß Feindes aug geblendt Daß ihme muht und Hertz zu boden müssen sinken. O König, der du bist zum Schutz der reynen Lehr, Vnd den Verfolgerern zu eyner straff gebohren, Fahr im[m]er Sighafft fort, verfechte Gottes ehr, Die Kron der Herligkeit ist dir schon ausserkohren."

It was Burghley who openly questioned the Spanish and Portuguese claims to South America, advising the Queen on securing a foothold in America as well.

LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS
Various publishers, places, and dates of publication, 1655 to 1900, 1655. The Language of Flowers phenomenon flourished for almost eighty years, beginning in France in the early 19th century. As both potent and subtle symbols in Western culture, flowers are found in religious texts, poetry, heraldic, and emblematic literature from the classical period and early Christianity, through medieval literature and the enlightenment. In the early 19th century books were written and published for the first time under titles such as Ab�c�daire de Flore ou Langage des Fleurs (1811), Oracles de Flore (1816), Emblemes de Flore et des V�g�aux (1819) and Le Langage des Fleurs (1819). With those publications, the language of flowers and its exploration of floral symbolism in communication - usually as a language of love and romance - gained acceptance and popularity. By 1830, the genre was widely available to a new world of fervent book buyers and readers in the working and middle classes. The vogue for language of flowers books was so prevalent that it became the subject of parodies and satires by, among others, Frederick Marryat and J. J. Grandville. Herman Melville was a devotee of symbolic flower language and referred to it in Mardi and Pierre and poems written to his wife Lizzie. See Beverly Seaton, The Language of Flowers, A History. University Press of Virginia, 1995. Overall in good to fine condition. A catalogue with full descriptions is available via pdf at our website, www.brickrow.com, on the catalogues page..

LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS.
Various publishers, places and dates of publication, 1655-1900. Over 100 titles, with one manuscript and one ephemeral item, in original or contemporary bindings, except as noted, profusely illustrated, primarily with lithographs and chromolithographs. The core of the collection was assembled by Doris Ann Elmore, a French teacher in San Francisco and lifelong Francophile. The collection is unusual for its scope. The Language of Flowers phenomenon flourished for almost eighty years, beginning in France in the early 19th century. As both potent and subtle symbols in Western culture, flowers are found in religious texts, poetry, heraldic, and emblematic literature from the classical period and early Christianity, through medieval literature and the enlightenment.
