ROSA Salvatore
ROSA Salvatore Figurine. Varia et concinna delineamenta N. n., n. p. n. d. [circa 1656], small in-4 (15,5 x 22 cm), one frontispice et 60 plates, restoration-period binding62 etchings on thick paper. Very rare.Salvatore Rosa made these etchings around 1656 in a collection originally entitled Figurine. This collection has a different title in the cartouche on the frontispiece, just as another copy in the Soares dos reis Portuguese National Museum bears the title: Has ludentis oty Carolo Rubeo singularis amititiae pignantes. D. D. D. The copy in the Portuguese museum is cataloged as a posthumous edition from the 18th century. Most of the engravings in this set can be seen separately at the Fine Art Museum of San Francisco (the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Art, the biggest collection of engravings in America). The Los Angeles County Museum has 8, while the Museum of Fine Art in Boston has 4. The engravings are described as having the same format as our set (13.6 x 8.9 cm), some engraved after anonymous artists, others drawn by Salvatore Rosa himself; the stylistic differences are clearly visible. The frontispiece of the copy held in the San Francisco museum is blank. The museum has only 52 engravings, all reversed.All the engravings in the present set have a monogram with the two letters, S and R interlaced. Some of the monograms are reversed, which leads one to think that the plates themselves are also reversed.Plate 29 has been repaired, the lower margin under the engraving has been replaced (the plate having been at some point cut to the edge of the image).

QUILLET (Claude).
Parisiis, apud Thomam Ioly, 1656. in-8. 8ff. 94pp. 1f. Plein vélin de l'époque. Edition en partie originale, présentant pour la première fois la version définitive de ce célèbre poème médical sur l'art de faire "de beaux enfants". Claude Quillet (1602-1661) était un médecin originaire de Chinon en Touraine qui mêla dans cet ouvrage les croyances populaires de son temps à ses idées souvent innovantes sur le développement des enfants et leur éducation. On peut notamment relever l'importance accordée par l'auteur aux sentiments éprouvés par la mère pendant la grossesse, à la vie affective de l'enfant ainsi qu'à son alimentation. Parue l'année précédente sous le voile de l'anonymat à Leyde, la première édition de cet ouvrage contenait plusieurs passages hostiles à Mazarin; mais le cardinal lui ayant malgré tout manifesté son estime, Quillet s'employa à réparer son affront dans cette seconde édition non seulement en remplaçant les 6 vers hostiles par 13 vers élogieux, mais aussi en allant jusqu'à dédier l'ouvrage au cardinal. Cette édition contient par ailleurs un opuscule paraissant pour la première fois, avec une page de titre séparée: "In obitu Patri Gassendi insignis philosophi astronomi, Lugubre Encomium". C'est l'éloge funèbre de son ami le philosophe et astronome Pierre Gassendi (1592-1655) qui fréquentait les mêmes cercles de "libertins érudits" et qui venait de disparaître. Quillet était effectivement un libre penseur et Sylvain Maréchal indique même dans son "Dictionnaire des Athées anciens et modernes" que dans la présente Callipédie "il paraît être Athée".

GILENIUS, Johann.
Utan ort, 1656. 8:o. (8),+ 214 s. Enstaka obetydliga fläckar. Samtida pergamentband med infärgade snitt. Svårläst gammal titeletikett av papper ovanpå en handskriven ryggtitel. Ryggen med småfläckar. Jonas Hallenbergs namnteckning på främre pärmens insida och en äldre anteckning, sannolikt av Piper: "Kiöpt på Hildebrands auction d. 18 martii 1740." Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. VD17 23:248313E. Warmholtz 4533. Carlander II, s. 252, 403 resp. 760. Jacob Henrik Hildebrand (1669-1719) var auskultant i Riksarkivet, kommissionssekreterare i Wien och Haag och sedan assessor i Wismarska tribunalet. Delar av hans boksamling såldes på Stockholms bokauktionskammare den 11 och 18 mars 1740, den större delen kom dock att utgöra grund för sonen Henric Jacobs stora bibliotek. En del av dennes boksamling återfinns i Ericsbergs samlingar, troligen genom Henric Jacobs bror David Henrik Hildebrand, som ägde Ericsberg vid den tiden. Denna volym har dock synbarligen tagit omvägen över den framstående historikern Jonas Hallenberg (1748-1834). Hallenbergs boksamling såldes på auktion i Stockholm 1835 med en tryckt katalog som upptog 2060 nr. Gjörwell nämner att Hallenberg hade ett bibliotek som till sin beskaffenhet och värde kan kallas ett "Ämbets-Bibliothek".

Jean CHAPELAIN La Pucelle ou la France délivrée. Paris, Augustin Courbé, 1656 Première édition de ce célèbre poème sur Jeanne d'Arc. Le texte de Chapelain est aujourd'hui quelque peu oublié et a été parodié par Voltaire au siècle suivant. Mais ce volume est remarquable par son illustration, elle est l'oeuvre de deux artistes de grand talent, le peintre Claude Vignon et le graveur Abraham Bosse : un frontispice et 12 belles gravures à pleine page. On y trouve aussi 2 portraits par Robert de Nanteuil, dont l'un d'après Philippe de Champaigne, et de nombreux en-têtes et culs-de-lampe. "La Pucelle", la première oeuvre poétique de Jean Chapelain est un poème en vingt-quatre chants, dont douze seulement furent imprimés, qui contient quelques beaux vers mais dont l'insuccès fit perdre à Chapelain presque tout son prestige. Il s'agit de l'un des premiers livres français illustrés par un peintre et il compte parmi les chefs d'oeuvre de l'illustration au XVIIe siècle. plus de détails et de photos.

He was admitted in 1562 to Lincoln's Inn, where he was called to the bar in 1570 and made a bencher in 1579. Owen was JP for Shropshire from about 1583 and for most other counties from about 1595. He was Lent reader in 1583, and served Lincoln's Inn as treasurer between 1588 and 1589. In 1589 he was created serjeant-at-law, and he was made queen's serjeant on 25 January 1593. On 21 January 1594 he was made a judge of the court of common pleas. He was rumoured to be a candidate for the vacant mastership of the court of wards in 1598, but died before any steps could be taken to fill the position.

Wing (Vincent)
Printed by R. and W. Leybourn for the Company of Stationers, 1656. FIRST EDITION, title printed in red and black, diagrams in text, minor browning in places, [xx], 105, 104-132, 104, small folio, contemporary calf, blind double fillets to sides with an extra pair towards the spine, skilfully rebacked, neat repairs to corners, red lettering piece, engraved armorial bookplate of Colonel Barrington Price, and ticket of Erwin Tomash inside front cover, very good. 'Wing was a surveyor, almanac writer, astrologer and astronomer. His life makes a fascinating study of the shift from belief in the old Ptolemaic earth-centered system to the new sun-centered astronomy of Copernicus. He was largely a self-taught astronomer and began, like almost all his contemporaries, as a firm believer in a fixed earth. His first book, Urania practical, in 1649 still attempted to explain the heavenly movements in terms of the Ptolemaic epicycles. By the time of the publication of the present work, he had become convinced of the truth of the sun-centered universe. He often partnered in the printing of his works with the Leybourn brothers, one of whom, William Leybourn, became a well-known writer of books on mathematics and astronomical subjects. Wing shows his conversion to the Copernican system early in this volume by noting: "If we look upon the Hypothesis of Ptolomie, who supposeth an annuall motion of the Sun about the Earth, and the Earth to be the Center about whom he moves, we shall finde it most absured " 'After describing the latest theories of the motion of each of the heavenly bodies, Wing … [Click Below for Full Description]

Very rare.Salvatore Rosa made these etchings around 1656 in a collection originally entitled Figurine. This collection has a different title in the cartouche on the frontispiece, just as another copy in the Soares dos reis Portuguese National Museum bears the title: Has ludentis oty Carolo Rubeo singularis amititiae pignantes. D. D. D. The copy in the Portuguese museum is cataloged as a posthumous edition from the 18th century. Most of the engravings in this set can be seen separately at the Fine Art Museum of San Francisco (the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Art, the biggest collection of engravings in America). The Los Angeles County Museum has 8, while the Museum of Fine Art in Boston has 4. The engravings are described as having the same format as our set (13.6 x 8.9 cm), some engraved after anonymous artists, others drawn by Salvatore Rosa himself; the stylistic differences are clearly visible. The frontispiece of the copy held in the San Francisco museum is blank. The museum has only 52 engravings, all reversed.All the engravings in the present set have a monogram with the two letters, S and R interlaced. Some of the monograms are reversed, which leads one to think that the plates themselves are also reversed.Plate 29 has been repaired, the lower margin under the engraving has been replaced (the plate having been at some point cut to the edge of the image).

DU VAL, Pierre.
Paris, 1656, First Edition. Original outline colour. 315 x 545mm. A fine example of the scarce first state of Sanson's map of the Spanish possessions in North America, with New Mexico and Florida (including Louisiana). 'French Florida' (basically Georgia) and an almost featureless Virginia appear on the right, with Canada at the top, with lakes Ontario and Erie. The title is within a fine cartouche engraved to look like a tapestry with tassels. It was this map that introduced the 'Second Sanson Model' for California as an island, with two large inlets on the north coast. It is one of the largest depictions of the island on an atlas map.

Pirogallo Francesco Maria
per Gio. Andrea Magri (1656), in Pavia. In-4° antico (210x146mm), pp. (8), 304, (2) [con 2 lettere del Marques Conde de Pinto]; legatura novecentesca m. pergamena e angoli con titolo in oro su tassello in pelle rossa e fregi in oro su dorso a falsi nervi. Dedica a astampa a Filippo IV di Spagna Conservata la brossura anteriore antica. Aloni ad alcune pp., strappo restaurato (senza perdita di testo) alle pp. 137-138. Manca, come alla maggior parte degli esemplari, la tavola ripiegata raffigurante in prospettiva la pianta di Pavia assediata. Prima e unica edizione, rara, di questa puntualissima cronaca quasi contemporanea agli eventi dell'assedio di Pavia del maggio-settembre 1655, eventi di cui il Pirogallo fu testimone oculare (Senza passione io scrivo solamente di cose verissime, ò da me vedute, e sono le operate nell'assedio, od intese da Prencipi, e Personaggi grandi) e che videro i pavesi resistere eroicamente agli eserciti coalizzati di Francia, Savoia e Modena. La data si ricava dall'imprimatur. Del Pirogallo, storico pavese e pubblico lettore di belle lettere nell'Università della sua città, non sono noti gli estremi biografici; egli dette alle stampe anche una raccolta di Discorsi accademici e famigliari (Milano, 1627) e fu membro della locale Accademia degli Affidati con il nome L'Affezionato. British Library Catalogue of Seventeenth Century Italian Books, II, p. 690. Platneriana, p. 255. Vinciana, I, 925. Lozzi, 3409, nota. Michel-Michel,VI,126. Coleti, p. 164.

Las Casas, Bartolome de
1656. London. Printed by J.C. for Nath. Brook. 8vo (163 x 102 mm). Complete, though folding plate provided in excellent convincing facsimile. Full brown calf, bound by Worsfold, covers with multiple gilt rules, spine with raised bands in six compartments, second and third with green and red morocco lettering pieces, others with repeat overall gilt filigree motif, all edges marbled, inner dentelles gilt, marbled endpapers; joint a bit rubbed. An excellent copy, title neatly repaired and remargined, a few leaves with minor marginal repairs, minor foxing.- Very rare first English edition of this translation of the "Brevisima relacion de la destruccion de las Indias" (1552); a work described by Church as the "most gruesome" of its age. It contains graphic accounts of the cruelty of the Spaniards towards the Indians. Bartolomé de las Casas was the most fervent and influential advocate of Indian rights during his time. He lived during a period in which Spanish conquistadors viewed the Indians as natural slaves and barbarians. This translation is by John Phillips (1631-1706), a nephew of John Milton, and in his preface Phillips denounces the Spanish in language that recalls his uncle's fallen angels: "the Indians... received (the Spanish) as Angels sent from Heaven, till their excessive cruelties, the torments and slaughters of their countrymen mov'd them to take Arms against the Spaniards." The book is dedicated to "Oliver, Lord Protector of the Commonwealth," who is encouraged to punish "the bloody and popish nation of the Spaniards." Milton was Cromwell's official censo … [Click Below for Full Description]
