        Vida y Hechos del Ingenioso Caballero Don Quixote de la Mancha.

      Brussels: Juan Mommarte,, 1662. 2 volumes, octavo (174 × 108 mm). Mid 19th-century grey polished sheep, marbled endpapers, three morocco labels to spines (two red, one green), titles gilt, covers delicately tooled in blind. Housed in custom brown linen chemises and a brown morocco-fronted cloth slipcase. Engraved frontispieces and 16 engraved illustrations by Frederik Bouttats. Spines slightly darkened, spines and edges a little rubbed, occasional thumb-soiling, a couple of tiny marginal annotations, minor dampstaining. Vol. I: K1 and K5 with repaired tears, affecting text, short closed tear to foot of R4, not affecting text; Vol. II with short closed tear to foot of engraved title. An exceptionally nice set. The first illustrated edition in Spanish, and only the second overall to bear illustrations (preceded by the 1657 Dutch edition). The first part of Don Quixote came out in 1605 and was an immediate and resounding success, and soon the work was known throughout Europe. The writing of the second part was stimulated by the publication of a spurious 'second part' in 1614; and it was an even greater success. The two parts were first published together in 1617 in Barcelona. There were no further editions for two decades. It is scarce in commerce, with nine copies traced at auction since 1952. Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra was born in Alcalá de Henares, Madrid in 1547. His first verses, on the death of Philip II's wife, appeared in 1569, but his literary career was interrupted as he served as a soldier for many years. He was eventually captured and sent as a prisoner to Algeirs in 1575. On his return to Spain he wrote several pieces without much success and entered government service. He found himself imprisoned several times during the following years, and it was in prison, it seems, that his masterpiece was begun being published in two volumes in 1605 and 1615.

        Grooten Atlas, oft werelt-beschryving, in welcke t’ aerdryck, de zee, en hemel, wort vertoont en beschreven.

      Joan Blaeu, 1662-1665. - 13 parts in 9 volumes, Dutch text edition, folio (560 by 380mm), printed title, engraved allegorical title, 9 printed or engraved titles within engraved borders, 8 divisional titles, and 600 engraved maps, plans and views (most double-page) in contemporary hand-colour (general and engraved titles heightened in gold), many engraved and woodcut illustrations in text coloured, index leaf at end of each volume, contemporary Dutch vellum, gilt, central arabesques replaced with gilt arms of van de Werve, leather labels on spines, gilt edges, occasional light browning on a few maps and some text pages, several maps with small marginal repairs, some light staining at lower corners of vol. 1 and 8. A Dutch edition of "the greatest and finest atlas ever published" (Koeman). The ‘Atlas Maior’ in its various editions was the largest atlas ever published. It was justly famed for its production values, its high typographic standard, and the quality of its engraving, ornamentation, binding and colouring. The atlas frequently served as the official gift of the Dutch Republic to princes and other authorities. It is one of the most lavish and highly prized of all seventeenth-century illustrated books. “In its sheer size and scale it surpassed all other atlases then in circulation, including the efforts of his great predecessors Ortelius and Mercator.” (Brotton). The work was published simultaneously in five different languages, Latin, French, Dutch, Spanish, and German. What Blaeu managed to achieve was to contain the world in a book - an endeavour that in many respects would never be equalled. Koeman Bl 57; van der Krogt 2:62. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      6 Bl., 676, 328, 592 Spalten, 23, 3 Bl., 188, 248, 160 Sp., S. 161-176, Sp. 177-246, 5 Bl. Fol. (39,3 x 26 cm). Pergament der Zeit mit handschriftlichem Rückentitel. Zweite Ausgabe eines der wichtigsten bayerischen Geschichtswerke, erstmals 1662-63 erschienen. Im wesentlichen verfaßt von Johann Vervaux (1585-1661), dem jesuitischen Beichtvater des bayerischen Kurfürsten Maximilian I., konnte das Werk erst posthum und aus ordenspolitischen Gründen unter dem Namen des bayerischen Archivars und Kanzlers Adlzreitter (1596-1662) veröffentlicht werden. In dieser Ausgabe zudem ergänzt durch die nur bis Kaiser Ludwig reichenden Annalen des Jesuiten Andreas Brunner (zuerst 1626-37 erschienen). - "Das Werk von Vervaux faßt alle voraufgegangenen zusammen, stellt aber auch der Form nach das reifste dar. Alle Vorzüge der humanistischen Historiographie, literarische Kunst und gelehrte Akribie, waren wie bei Welser, Rader und Brunner in ihm vereinigt, archivalische Quellen, deren Benutzung seit Aventin und Hundt zu den selbstverständlichen Forderungen der bayerischen Historiographie gehörte, hat er besonders reich verwendet, gleichzeitig hat er versucht, die Ereignisse geistig zu verbinden. Die neue Gattung historischen Schrifttums, die in den Werken de Thous (1607), Stradas (1632) oder Clarendons (1646) beispielhaften Ausdruck gefunden hat, ist mit Vervaux auch nach Deutschland gekommen, Vorbild und Maß für die kommende historiographische Entwicklung" (Andreas Kraus in Spindler II, 811). Leibniz urteilt in seiner Vorrede: "Nulla Germaniae superioris pars meliores Historicos invenit quam Bavaria". - Die beiden Zwischentitel zum Adlzreiter-Teil nicht mitgebunden. Gering gebräunt, Vorsatz und Vortitel in der oberen Ecke leicht beschädigt, die Innengelenke mit Wurmspuren. Einband etwas bestoßen und wenig fleckig. Schönes Exemplar. - Von herausragender Provenienz: Der vordere Innendeckel mit Exlibris (geduckter Löwe mit Knochen) von J(ohann) G(ustav) Droysen (1808-1884), einer der wichtigsten deutschen Historiker des 19. Jahrhunderts und Mitglied der Frankfurter Nationalversammlung. *De Backer/Sommervogel III, 707, 1 und II, 264, 4. Graesse I, 20. Lentner 2673.

(Dédicace à Monsieur le Comte de Saint Aignan, de l'édition de 1648), 2 ff., 80-27 pp., 368 pp. avec le titre-frontispice, 2 planches hors-texte ("Vers Maritime" et planche et regard de "La Maison d'Astrée"), et 2 portraits hors-texte (L'Infante Isabelle et Comte de Saint Aignan François de Beauvillier) Très agréable exemplaire de la seconde édition, plus complète que la première de 1648 ( Tchemerzine, X, 434). La reliure, ancienne, a été parfaitement restaurée (on peut lire l'inscription ms. "HG Jones" sur le papier de garde), le portrait de Tristant l'Hermite est manquant, mais les 2 feuillets de dédicace de l'édition de 1648 ont été insérés à la suite de la page de titre. Hormis le manque signalé du portrait, l'état de l'ouvrage est tout à fait remarquable. Académicien, auteur dramatique fort couru de son temps, François l'Hermite Sieur du Solier (1601-1655) emprunte son nom de plume à son ancêtre Louis Tristan L'Hermite, grand prévôt de France sous Louis XI et descendant prétendu de Pierre l'Ermite. Disciple poétique de Malherbe, il évoque dans ses oeuvres tant l'amour, dans ses joies et ses tourments, que la gloire et les beautés de la nature. "Ce Baiser est un sceau par qui ma vie est close : Et comme on peut trouver un serpent sous des fleurs, I'ay rencontré ma mort sur un bouton de rose". Français

        Journal de Mr de Saint-Amour

      1662[Amsterdam]. Imprimé par les soins dudit sieur de Saint-Amour. 1662. 2 parties en 1 volume in-folio, veau tacheté XVIIIème fatigué, dos à nerfs orné. Charnières fendues. [4] ff. ; 578 pp. ; [2] pp. ; 286 pp. Unique édition, peu commune, de cette très importante source pour l'histoire de la condamnation des fameuses cinq propositions extraites d'une lecture sommaire de l'Augustinus par Isaac Habert et pour celle du premier jansénisme : Louis Gorin de Saint-Amour, docteur de Sorbonne, était l'émissaire choisi par les Arnaldiens de la Sorbonne pour défendre à Rome l'ouvrage du docteur d'Ypres dans l'examen qui en était fait. Il se rendit sur place, argumenta pendant les deux ans que durèrent les tractations entre les différentes instances romaines, mais, en partie par manque de connaissance des hommes de la Curie et de la psychologie romaine, il ne sut pas actionner à temps les bons ressorts, en dépit des réticences assez nettes d'Innocent X à entrer dans les voies d'une condamnation. Cette dernière eut cependant lieu en 1653 par la fameuse bulle Cum occasione.Co-rédigé avec Arnauld, sa monumentale relation donne le menu des négociations ainsi que quantité de pièces annexes regroupées en pagination séparée à la fin. Mouillure quelques feuillets, ex-libris manuscrit partiellement effacé sur la page de titre.

        TRACTATUS PHYSIOLOGICUS DE PULCHRITUDINE. JUXTA EA QUAE DE SPONSA IN CANTICIS CANTICORUM MYSTICE PRONUNCIANTUR

      Typis Francisci Foppens, Bruxellis 1662 - 170 x 107 mm. (6 3/4 x 4 1/4"). 4 p.l., 60 pp., [1] leaf (approbation). FIRST EDITION. Older limp vellum, spine with title and date written in ink. Woodcut initials and tailpieces, and 30 engravings on title and in text of female faces and animal faces to which some of them are compared. Front pastedown with stamp of A. Van Loock; each page of text within ink-ruled frame. Dorbon 5014; Wellcome V, 322; Brunet V, 1026 ("orné de jolies gravures au trait"). Vellum a little soiled and rumpled, a portion of the title page with light offset from something previously laid in, isolated trivial soiling in the text, otherwise quite a fine, large, fresh, and clean copy. This is the sole printing of an obscure but fascinating physiological treatise on pulchritude. The text is divided into 14 sections, each of which begins with a quotation from the "Song of Songs," followed by an explanation of how the quoted "mystic" words show that Solomon indeed knew what perfect female beauty was. For example, in chapter 1, the quotation "your head is like the camel's" is used as evidence that a woman's head ought to be lofty, and juxtaposed engravings of a (wary) camel and a (despondent) woman give a graphic reinforcement to the point. The chapter, like the other 13, ends with an appropriate short poem, presumably by the author. Brunet, in an understatement, says that the title of this charming, wacky, and scarce work (one copy in ABPC since 1989) "gives some indication of its singularity." This copy's singularity is further enhanced by the fact that every untrimmed page is ruled in brown ink. This is the sole printing of an obscure but fascinating physiological treatise on pulchritude.

Van Loock; each page of text within ink-ruled frame. Dorbon 5014; Wellcome V, 322; Brunet V, 1026 ("orné de jolies gravures au trait"). Vellum a little soiled and rumpled, a portion of the title page with light offset from something previously laid in, isolated trivial soiling in the text, otherwise quite a fine, large, fresh, and clean copy. This is the sole printing of an obscure but fascinating physiological treatise on pulchritude. The text is divided into 14 sections, each of which begins with a quotation from the "Song of Songs," followed by an explanation of how the quoted "mystic" words show that Solomon indeed knew what perfect female beauty was. For example, in chapter 1, the quotation "your head is like the camel's" is used as evidence that a woman's head ought to be lofty, and juxtaposed engravings of a (wary) camel and a (despondent) woman give a graphic reinforcement to the point. The chapter, like the other 13, ends with an appropriate short poem, presumably by the author. Brunet, in an understatement, says that the title of this charming, wacky, and scarce work (one copy in ABPC since 1989) "gives some indication of its singularity." This copy's singularity is further enhanced by the fact that every untrimmed page is ruled in brown ink.

Antonio 'Neri's L'arte vetraria distinta in libri sette' was first printed by Giunta in Florence in 1612. This translation by Christopher Merrett was made for the Royal Society as part of its plan to provide handbooks to the various trades useful to experimental scientists.The dedication to Robert Boyle and the note to the 'Ingenious Reader' are both signed C. M. (ie. Christopher Merrett). It includes Merrett's commentaries, as well as his observations on Neri's technique for making lead-glass. Lacking at the end of this copy are 'An Account of the Glass Drops' which were brought to England from Germany which was given to the Royal Society by Robert Moray in 1661 (p.353-362), an appendix on furnace tools (p.363-5), and a list of errata (p.354). Neri (1576-1614), Florentine priest and chemist, travelled in Holland and Italy and in this work disclosed the techniques of Venetian glassmaking. Merrett (1641-1659), English physician and botanist and first libarian of the Royal College of Physicians, published works on natural history and medicine.

        Metamorphosis et historia naturalis Insectorum (Parts 1 and 2)

      Medioburgi (Middelburg, Netherlands): Jacobum Fierensium, 1662. First Edition. Quarter Leather. Very Good. 16mo. Two-volume set. Part 1 (1662) - (28) introductory pages, 236 text pages, 63 b/w plates including the frontispiece. Part 2 (1667) - (32) introductory pages, 259 text pages, 38 of 42 colored plates. Parts 1 and 2 were published by Goedaert during his lifetime. (A third part prepared by Johannis de Mey from Goedaert's notes was published in 1669 after Goedaert's death.) Rebound in quarter leather. Clean pages. Light wear. Very attractive coloring. Although Goedaert, a noted watercolorist and one of the earliest authors on entomology, did not devise a system of insect classification, attributed some insect larvae to spontaneous generation, and made a number of anatomical errors, he was the first person to base his research entirely upon firsthand observation-experiment. One of his contemporaries noted that in only a few years, Goedaert, who had no formal education, discovered and identified more distinct types of caterpillars than all of the naturalist that preceded him.

        Rump: Or an Exact Collection Of the Choycest Poems and Songs Relating to the Late Times. By the most Eminent Wits, from Anno 1639. to Anno 1661.

      Small 8vo, Engraved frontispiece, engraved title, A4, B - Z, Aa-Nn8, Oo4, (the last blank) A1 is the rare longitudinal half-title, finely bound in 19th century dark green crushed grain morocco, gilt with 2-line fillet border enclosing a central panel of a french fillet with elaborate filligree corner-pieces, spine fully gilt, a.e.g., combed marbled endpapers, in very fine condition. The engravings and the half-title are lacking in many copies.Alexander Brome was a successful lawyer, but better known as a poet, and the elder brother of the bookseller, Henry Brome. He specialised in love poems in the cavalier mode; satires attacking the king's enemies and the Commonwealth government; and drinking songs in the Anacreontic tradition. The present collection was inspired by the purging of the Long Parliament in 1648 and the consequent Rump Parliament. It began life in 1660 as "Ratts Rhimed to Death", a slim volume of 90 pages and was expanded the same year by the addition of some 200 new pieces into a volume of 228 pages. At 566 pages the present title is almost a new work, being more than double the size of the previous edition. It is heavily political in its satire but also, especially in Part 2, exceedingly bawdy and scatalogical in content, with titles such as "News from Colchester. Or, A Proper new Ballad, of certain carnal passages betwixt a Quaker and a colt, at Horsley near Colchester in Essex", and "Bum-foder or Waste-Paper Proper to wipe the Nations Rump with, or your Own".

After the prelims, the medical herbal proper, with the text divided into two parts, gives accounts of the medicinal properties of 52 and 183 numbered nuts, berries, herbs, grains, fruits, roots, flowers and other plants, foods or substances, with instructions for their preparation and use to cure or prevent illnesses. The account of tobacco, not yet cultivated in the Netherlands when Jacobsz. wrote, notes that it is imported from the West Indies and can be smoked in a pipe or steeped in wine overnight for drinking. The book continues with a "Remedie boecxken" with medicinal recipes intended for the poor, arranged by the various ailments, and ends with a guide for visiting and comforting the sick and dying, followed by a few additional recipes.Ad 2: Third known edition of a very rare anonymous medical guide with 639 numbered entries, most of them discussing a particular ailment and recommending a medicine and/or other treatment. At the end is an alphabetical index of the ailments. The Dutch title can be translated as "Princely gift, or: a medicine book". It provides a remarkable window into medical practices in the household of the Dutch Princes of Orange.We have not identified the owner "BS" who had the book bound in 1650. With 1 quire signature and a couple catchwords slightly shaved, the first title-page slightly worn and several corners folded, but otherwise in good condition. The binding is somewhat worn, with 8 of the 13 different binding stamps crisply impressed and the other 5 rather faint. Two rare popular editions on practical medicine.
