BARROW, Isaac.
Cambridge: ex officina Joann. Field; impensis Guglielmi Nealand 1657 - [4],56p. with a final leaf of errata. Shaved close at the top, touching the first word of the title and many of the headlines, otherwise in very good condition. Neatly disbound. Wing E3390. ESTC lists eleven copies, of which only two are in North America, CSmH, ViU. First edition. Isaac Barrow's second publication, and the second of his two epitomes of Euclid, each designed as an undergraduate text. He eventually became master of Trinity College, Cambridge, and as a mathematician was regarded by his contemporaries as second only to Isaac Newton. Newton has often been described as Barrow's pupil (e.g. in the DNB), but this appears not to have been the case; by 1669, however, there was some sort of working relationship between the two of which the details are not entirely clear.

HOWELL, James (ca 1594-1666)
London: J. Streeter, 1657. 4to., (10 5/8 x 6 6/8 inches). Title-page printed in red and black. Catalogue of Mr. Howell's works at end. Engraved frontispiece portrait of the author leaning against an English oak by Abraham Bosso titled "Heictutus Obumbror" (mounted on slightly heavier contemporary stock), folding panoramic view of London by Wenceslaus Hollar (laid down on heavier contemporary stock, creased, small repair at fold, browning and spotting throughout). 19th-century calf gilt (covers detached). Provenance: Near contemporary ownership inscription on title-page dated 10th December 1661, and copious marginal annotations. First edition, the frontispiece portrait in Pforzheimer's fifth state. With a fine view of London before the Great Fire. James Howell was appointed Royal historiographer to Charles II in 1660 - the apex of a somewhat checkered career as a traveler, diplomat, linguist, writer, parliamentarian and spy. On the eve of the Civil War he was appointed Secretary of the Privy Council, a post he was never able to occupy, instead he was imprisoned in Fleet for eight years during the interregnum for his Royalist leanings. "Londinopolis" was written after his release and is mostly a condensed version of John Stow"s "Survey of London" published in 1598. Stow's book contained amusing anecdotes and descriptions but also detailed accounts of the buildings, social conditions and customs of London.

[Wine]. [England, Parliament]
London: Printed by Henry Hills, and John Field, Printers to His Highness, 1657. 1st edition (Wing E-1046). Not in Gabler, nor Goldsmith. Printed self-wrappers. VG (split developing along fold). Now housed in archival mylar sleeve.. [2], 2 pp. Commonwealth seal to t.p. Folio: *2. 10-5/8" x 6-3/4" Gabler, though not listing this item, does briefly discuss (& list) divers tracts & pamphlets written in the early 1640s voicing public outrage over a contract between Charles I and the Vintner's Company of London- under said contract the Vintners agreed to pay a 46 shilling tax on every ton of Spanish & French wine & also agreed to annually buy a certain amount from English importers. In return, the vintners were permitted to sell cooked victuals (a proviso *not* in their original charter) & allowed to recoup the tax by charging a penny a quart more that the officially published price. The ultimate effect was to give the Vintners' Company a monopoly on the wine trade, all the while enriching the coffers of Charles I. Needless to say, wine drinkers were livid. Parliament eventually responded in the consumers' favor. [Gabler, pp. 2-3]. This act of Cromwell's establishes limitations on prices for Spanish & French wines, a proclamation issued perhaps in memory of the Vintner's Company earlier attempts at profiteering?
