Thomas Owen
London: H. Twyford, T. Dring, and J. Place, 1656. Full title continued: Wherein are many choice cases, most of them throughly argued by the learned serjeants, and after argued and resolved by the grave judges of those times. With many cases wherein the differences in the year-books are reconciled and explained with two exact alphabeticall tables, the one of the cases, and the other of the principall matters therein contained. Text continuous despite pagination. There are occasional copperplate ink annotations. Thomas Owen, d.1598, was an English judge. "Owen was a man of wide culture, his library at his death containing books in French, Italian, and Spanish as well as the more technical works of common law. Owen was without doubt a capable technical lawyer, but he was above all a man of very sound and reliable judgement, 'a noted counsellor, and much resorted to for advice' (Wood, Ath. Oxon., 1.673)" -DNB. CONDITION In a recent half calf binding. Externally, fine. Internally, firmly bound, with some foxing, and a few marks, prominent to the first and last few pages. There is a small section missing from singeing (candle?) to the margin of page 99. Overall: VERY GOOD with a fine exterior. Overall Condition: Very Good.

HOMER
I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "Hateful to me as the gates of Hades is that man who hides one thing in his heart and speaks another." ― Homer, The Iliad A rare mid-17th-century printing of the famous Classical Greek epics, 'Iliad' and The 'Odyssey' by Homer. These two poems focus on Greek mythological heroes, their military conquests, and involvement in the Trojan War. Each of these title have been printed and reprinted countless times, but edition that feature both Greek and Latin translations are considered scarce. This 1656 printing published by Hackiana under the Elzevier printing house, is a highly desirable edition. The Latin translation includes marginalia and Latin footnotes helping to clarify the Greek transliteration. The commentary included in this edition is from Didymus Chalcenterus, a 1st-century BC Greek scholar who was known for his commentary and notes on Homer and other Greco-Roman poets. According to Willems, the typography of this 1656 edition of Homer was 'very careful.'. [Attributes: First Edition]

CHARRON Pierre
- Chez Jean Elsevier, A Leide 1656, Fort in-16 (7,5x13cm), (24) 621pp. (12), relié. - Seconde édition elsevirienne. Il y en eut quatre, la première ayant paru en 1646 ; elle sont toutes basées sur l'édition de Bordeaux. Un Titre frontispice allégorique, une vignette aux armes du Prince Maximilien de Bourgogne. Reliure en plein maroquin rouge de la fin du XIXe signée Gruel en queue. Dos à nerfs orné. Titre et date dorés. Double filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Riche frise intérieure. Tranches dorées. Infimes traces de frottement. Zones légèrement blanchâtres sur les plats, visibles en contre jour. Très bel exemplaire. De la Sagesse est un traité de philosophie morale dans lequel l'auteur analyse des opinions qui furent rejetées par le Clergé et le Parlement, lesquels condamnèrent le livre. Charron y prône en effet une tolérance religieuse extrème, séparant la religion de la morale (celle-ci fondée sur le droit naturel) annonçant qu'on est homme avant d'embrasser une quelconque religion, ouvrant ainsi l'espace d'une pensée laïque. Il associe l'idée de Dieu à la nature, la notion d'être homme précèdant ainsi le fait religieux, ce qui était proprement inacceptable voire hérétique à l'époque. Il conseille en outre le doute en toute chose, ce dont Descartes s'inspirera pour son Discours de la méthode. Il fera ainsi gravé sur un linteau dans sa maison de Condom la devise "je ne sais".

Thomas Owen
London: T. R. for H. Twyford, T. Dring, and J. Place, 1656. Bound in full leather. Scarce. Thomas Owen (d. 1598), judge. 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. Owen was a man of wide culture, his library at his death containing books in French, Italian, and Spanish as well as the more technical works of common law. Owen was without doubt a capable technical lawyer, but he was above all a man of very sound and reliable judgement, 'a noted counsellor, and much resorted to for advice' (Wood, Ath. Oxon., 1.673). From a relatively early stage of his career he was frequently called upon by the privy council to carry out a variety of commissions. He attempted, perhaps for a time successfully, to defuse a serious contretemps between the courts of king's bench and common pleas; and as recorder of Shrewsbury (1588-92) he permitted the continued observance of popular customs opposed by the more puritanical faction in the town.

Atlanten - Janssonius, Joannes,
Amstelodami [Amsterdam], Apud Ioannem Ianssonium [1656-57]. 51 x 36 cm. Gestochener Titel, 4 Bl., 62 Kupferstich-Karten, davon 1 altkoloriert. Zeitgenössisches Ganzpergament mit Goldprägung auf den Deckeln und am Rücken. Einband mit kleinen Beschädigungen, Vergoldung des hinteren Deckels abgerieben. Die ersten Blätter mit restaurierten Papierschäden im Randbereich. Titel stärker, sonst meist nur im Randbereich gebräunt bzw. fleckig. Wie üblich einige Einrisse im Bugbereich der Karten. Eine Karte aus einem anderen Exemplar ergänzt (altkoloriert). Exlibris. Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici II, Me 58/64. Vollständiger erster Teil des zweiten Bandes mit allen Karten zu Frankreich und der Schweiz. Der zweite Teil (Niederlande/Belgien) wurde vom Vorbesitzer entfernt und durch eine Schatulle ersetzt, die der Aufbewahrung kleinformatiger Karten oder Dokumente diente. Die Kollation entspricht den Angaben von Koeman, allerdings wurde die Gesamtkarte durch die moderne Fassung "Galliae, Nova et Accurata descriptio Vulgo Royaume De France" ersetzt. Seit 1650 wurde auf dem Titelblatt keine Jahreszahl vermerkt und das mittlere Feld mit dem typographischen Titel blieb leer. Dieses musste dann nicht mehr umgestochen werden, sondern konnte für die verschiedenen Editionen gleich bleiben. Vielmehr wurde das Titelsegment separat gedruckt und montiert. In vorliegendem Exemplar ist das Titelblatt mit unbedrucktem und unmontiertem Titelfeld erhalten. Ein zu montierender Titel liegt jedoch faksimiliert bei. Die Klappschatulle am Rückdeckel enthält 35 Holzschnitte und Kupferstiche, meist Landkarten und … [Click Below for Full Description]

SANSON d'ABBEVILLE (Nicolas).
Paris, Pierre Mariette, 1656. 400 x 546 mm. Carte très importante pour la cartographie des Grands Lacs. C'est la première carte à représenter les cinq Grands Lacs canadiens. C'est également la première fois que sont utilisés les noms de Lac Supérieur, Lac Ontario et Lac Erié, également appelé du Chat en référence aux Indiens habitant la région. Les régions des Grands Lacs et du Saint-Laurent sont très détaillées, les villes de Montreal et de Quebec sont nommées. Nicolas Sanson semble s'être inspiré d'une carte aujourd'hui perdue, établie par le père jésuite Chaumonat, qui avait voyagé au nord du Lac Erie en 1640 et 1641. Reconnu comme le fondateur de la cartographie française, Nicolas Sanson, le premier de cette célèbre famille de cartographes, quitta sa ville natale d'Abbeville pour Paris, où il rencontra Richelieu en 1627. Ce dernier, très impressionné par son oeuvre cartographique, le présenta au roi Louis XIII qui le nomma Géographe Ordinaire du Roi. Il fut le premier, en France, à concevoir un atlas mondial et publia près de trois cents cartes. Petites galeries de ver dans les marges. Tache d'encre noire dans le coin supérieur de la carte. Contours aquarellés à l'époque. Burden, 318.

Specimina Philosophiae: seu Dissertatio de Methodo recte regendae rationis, & veritatis in scientiis investigandae: Dioptrice, et Meteora. Ex Gallico translata, & ab Auctore perlecta, variifque in luci emendata. pp. [16], 290. 3. Passiones Animae, per Renatum Des-Cartes: Gallice ab ipso conscriptae, nunc autem in exterorum gratiam Latina civitate donatae ab H.D.M. i.u.l. pp. [20], 115, [5]. Text in Latin. Woodcut illustrations throughout the text, frontispiece portrait. Each work has its own title page and the whole has a separate plain title page. Full speckled calf, decorated gilt border to upper and lower covers. Spine lavishly decorated in gilt, five compartments each with a sunburst at the centre. Red morocco label lettered in gilt. Rubbing to corners and bottom edges and foot of spine. Rubbing to the joints, cracking to the joint with the upper cover, becoming detached but still holding. Contents are in excellent condition with two small holes resulting in very slight loss of text but no loss of meaning and four small tears to the corners, not affecting text. A nice copy of this celebrated volume bringing together three of Descartes most important works (including his last published work on the theory of the passions or emotions) in a Latin translation for a wider audience. Indeed, Descartes's work was much better known in Latin than in French until well into the nineteenth century.

Galileo
Bologna, 1655-1656. 2 vols, recent full speckled calf, gilt rosettes and rules at spine, gilt red morocco lettering piece, all edges with early yellow wash. Vol 1: [28], 48, 48, [8], 160, [4], 68, 127, [4], 264, 43 pp., including engraved frontis. by Stephano Della Bella and engraved portrait of Galileo by F. Villamoena, folding plate of compass. Vol. 2:[2], 60, [16], 104, [4], 105-156, 48, [8], 179, [1], [2], 53-106, [2], 103-126, [8], 238 (i.e. 242), [6] both vols. with numerous diagrams, woodcut initials, headpieces and tailpieces. Early marginalia on two pages in vol. 2. First edition of the first collected works of the father of modern physics, edited by Carlo Manolessi. These volumes are the fruit of the vast efforts made after Galileo's death to gather and preserve his work. Much of the content was compiled by his friend and student, Vincenzio Viviani, and includes all of Galileo's major writings (except of course the Diologo, which was banned for its heretical comparison of the Copernican and Ptolomaic systems, and did not appear in the Opere until 1744). Viviani had planned to publish the collected works on his own, but was unable to realize his ambition, and the task fell to Manolessi. The second volume contains important selections from Galileo's correspondences, as well as writings on Galileo by others. Some never before published writings include Galileo's letter to Padre Grembergero and his treatise on the hydrostatic balance, more commonly known as "la Bilancetta." The Opere is a testament to the profundity, both scientific and cultural, of Galileo's life and … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

Fox, George
London: Printed for Thomas Simonds, 1656. First Edition. About Near Fine pamphlet in modern paper wrappers, measuring 139 x 174 mm. Internally complete, with minor paper loss to title page not affecting text and a closed tear to signature A2. Some spotting and toning to margins, else a pleasing copy of this important and rare work on women's learning and their ecclesiastical relationship to speech. ESTC lists only three copies of this title in the US, and it has never before appeared at auction. "Let your women learn in silence, with all subjection; here is a silent learning, a learning in silence: I suffer not a woman to Teach nor to usurp Authority over the man, but to be silent, there she is to learn." Opening his pamphlet in this way, Fox impresses upon his reader that the patriarchal structure of the Church should be followed even in moments of teaching and learning. Just as Christ teaches man, he argues, so husbands should teach their wives and so wives should silently accept that knowledge and learn. Yet Fox does encourage female learning; he urges husbands take that duty upon themselves with tenderness and love. And he does make a notable exception to the ban against women speaking at home or in places of worship: in prophesy. "There is a great Mystery, I speak concerning Christ and the Church...the prophesying of the daughters." Fox claims that when women speak as prophets, they gain the right to communicate publicly as mouthpieces of God; to silence them would be to override the Almighty. "A daughter might prophesie and the daughter is a prophet where the spirit o … [Click Below for Full Description]

Extremely Scarce Early English Edition of Jacob Boehme's The Way to Christ Bound with a Very Scarce First Edition on the Four Complexions (published 1654). This book is a 12mo measuring 5” x 3”. [4],154;[4]87,[1];[2],60,[2]; [2]; 50; [4]; 47, [1] pp, and [96] pp. It is complete except that printed pages 59 and 60 in the 60 pp listed above have been supplied in very old (and readable) manuscript including catch phrases. Bound in what appears to be original leather boards with the remains of clasps, leather has crackling and wear but has been restored to a nice patina, spine rebacked with 3 raised bands and period-appropriate blind stamping. Binding is tight and strong. Title page has an old ink stain, there are some occasional marginal worm holes, pages trimmed close but no loss of text in the first section – there is some loss of letters at the fore-edge of the “Four Complextions” section. Intriguingly, there is quite a nice hand drawn saddled horse on the last blank which has been colored in with water colors. Last blank and end paper have some ghosting from the horse. Normal browning throughout, occasional old marginalia, but all in all a quite nice copy of this very scarce collection of theological and philosophical works from the great mystical theologian, Jacob Boehme. Both books are quite scarce. There are no auction records for the 1656 edition of The Way to Christ and no copies for sale.

First edition of the German translation of A lapidary, first published in English in 1652 and compiled by Thomas Nicols: ''the first independent gemological book by a British author ... based firmly upon Boetius de Boodt'' (Sinkankas). Nicols lists all the true gems, but also covers fossils, coral, pearls, amber, etc. For each he discusses the forms, appearance, properties (diligently but somewhat sceptically reporting magical, mystical and medical claims), origins, classification, uses, prices, engraving on gems, etc. Nicols makes an intelligent synthesis of the earlier literature, as well as original contributions primarily in practical aspects related to jewellery, such as enhancing stones with reflective foils or dyestuffs, hardening softer stones, and the related subjects of falsification and adulteration.With a few minor smudges. Binding slightly stained. Overall in very good condition.

CASTELLI, Francesco.
ICCU (3 copies described as "[1656]" with additional material); Thieme & Becker VI, pp. 152-153. First edition of the extensive defence by Francesco Castelli (1599-1667) of his 1648 designs for a new façade for the Milan Cathedral (plates 4-6), published as a result of the rejection of his designs. A second edition or reissue with additional material appeared in 1656. There is no full-fledged title-page, but a sort of half-title without the author's name or imprint. Although many architects, including no less a figure than Giovanni Lorenzo Bernini, had endorsed Castelli's designs (all published in this work), the design of his competitor Carlo Buzzi (ca. 1585-1658) was chosen (plate 3). Buzzi had been recently and unexpectedly appointed head of the church factory of the Cathedral, succeeding Francesco Maria Richini (1584-1658), who had also designed a new façade elaborating on earlier designs by Pellegrino Tibaldi (1527-1596) (plates 1-2).Richini's design was romanesque in style and Buzzi's gothic, while Castelli's combined gothic and baroque elements. The judgments of many Italian architects on such a controversial project as the replacement of the façade of one of the most important cathedrals in Italy provides us with a highly interesting discussion. We are given a clear insight into how the most important Italian architects of the mid-17th century (Bernini among them) viewed the different architectural styles, and it gives us an impression of their preferences. This extremely rare work is therefore of the utmost importance for the history of architecture and the role of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Irenopoli [Amsterdam]: no publisher/printer [Frans Kuyper, & Daniel Bakkamude], 1656 [i.e., 1668]. Folio (31.7 cm, 12.5"). 2 vols. I: [3] ff., 1038 pp. [i.e., 1044] (lacking one sectional title-page). II: 356 [i.e., 360], [4] pp.; 132 [i.e., 134] pp., [4] ff. (lacking title-page, engr. portrait, & six sectional title-pages). Only edition, second issue, of volumes eight and nine from the series Bibliotheca fratrum polonorum. Exegetist Johann Ludwig von Wolzogen (ca. 1599–1658) was an Austrian nobleman who became a prominent voice among the Polish Brethren called Unitarians, proponents of Socinianism and the Radical Reformation that denied the Holy Trinity based on rational exegesis of Scripture. Their collected writings, the => first and most important collection of Socinian documents, were clandestinely published ca. 1665–92 in ten volumes with => false imprints to evade censors.    Like the rest of the series, these two volumes of Von Wolzogen's exegetical, didactical, and polemical works are imprinted with the date 1656, without a publisher; however it is known they were published in Amsterdam by Frans Kuyper (1629–91) and Daniel Bakkamude (1662–85), perhaps with Hendrick Boom (1657–1709), whose monogrammed printer's device appears on some of the sectional title-pages. Kuyper, a former minister, produced only Socinian works in the decade 1663–73.    The first volume contains exegesis of the Gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, and the second, commentary on the Acts and the epistles of Paul, Jacob, and Jude, with contributions from Wissowatius, Crellius, and Schlichtingi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Il testo è in italiano e in latino, incorniciato pagina per pagina in fregi xilografici, con anche le iniziali figurate e finalini."I consoli dei comuni italiani giuravano, all'atto di assumere il potere, certi capitoli nei quali erano comprese da un lato regole riguardanti la condotta politica, dall'altro norme concernenti l'esercizio della giurisdizione. [.]Così a Venezia vediamo il doge giurare le "promissioni", delle quali la più celebre, quella che si mantenne sino alla caduta, è di natura politica; accanto però ad una riguardante la giurisdizione criminale. [.] La promissione ducale di natura politica contiene [.] una serie di promesse di governare e giudicare rettamente, di serbare il segreto sugli affari di stato, di eseguire le deliberazioni del consiglio e così via; ma, sin dalla prima che ci è conservata, cioè quella del doge Enrico Dandolo, del 1193, contiene pure una serie di restrizioni al potere ducale, come quella di non corrispondere direttamente col papa né con altri principi, di non intromettersi nella nomina del patriarca, di non disporre dei beni del comune, ecc." (Treccani). Le promissioni sono cinque e seicentesche: la più recente fra tutte porta la data del 1656. L'insieme di queste regole, oltre a chiarire i precetti ducali, costituisce un interessante punto di vista su diversi aspetti della cultura e dell'economia veneziana in questi due secoli.
