Prynne, William
London: Printed for the Author by T[homas] C[hilde] and L[eonard] P[arry], 1662. First edition, large-paper copy. Title within typographic border and headpieces. 4to. Contemporary blue morocco, gilt roll-tooled double border with lily stamps at four corners, gilt-stamped arms of Charles II in center of each cover; joints worn, upper joint mended, extremities rubbed, lightly browned, a few marginal spots or smudges. First edition, large-paper copy. Title within typographic border and headpieces. 4to. Dedication copy to King Charles II. Prynne (1600-1669), the ardent Puritan controversialist twice convicted of sedition and tortured, was forgiven at the Restoration and appointed by the King as keeper of the records in the Tower of London. "F. W. Maitland called this aspect of Prynne's career 'heroic' ... There was a double heroism: the physical labour that Prynne described, but also the intellectual rescue of a historical feudal law from the myth of an ancient constitution (to which Prynne in the 1630s, as a disciple of Coke, had himself subscribed). The Commons' claim to sovereignty could not stand up to the scrutiny of sources; the king's imperial powers, on the other hand, were given a heightened vindication" (ODNB). Wing P4011; ESTC R5505. Cf. BL C.23.e.6 for same armorial stamp. Provenance: Clarence S. Bemens (bookplate); Robert S. Pirie (bookplate)

Leopold I., Römisch-Deutscher Kaiser):
Graz, Widmannstetter, 1662. 2 Bll., 16 S. Erste Ausgabe, sehr selten (fehlt auf der ÖNB). - Graff 524 (kennt nur das Exemplar auf der Steiemärkischen Landesbibliothek). - Die erste Handwerksordnung für die steirischen Goldschmiede war 1571 erschienen und ist laut Josef Joos (Das steirische Goldschmiedehandwerk bis ins 19. Jahrhundert. in Kunst und Kunsthandwerk. Jg. 21 / 1919) nicht mehr auffindbar. Diese erste Goldschmiedeordnung war aber bald unbrauchbar und wurde durch jene von Erzherzog Ernst erlassene und 1592 publizierte ersetzt. Diese blieb für lange Zeit in Kraft. Im Jahre 1651 petinionierten die Grazer Goldschmiede um die Bewilligung der 13lötigen Augsburger, an Stelle der üblichen 14lötigen Wiener Silberprobe. Der Kaiser bewilligte am am 10. April 1652 diese Bitte ordnete aber gleichzeitig an, daß nun neben den zwei Zechmeistern auch der Münzwardein die Probe auf den Feingehalt vorzunehmen habe. Die Grazer Goldschmiede lehnten dies aber ab und arbeiteten mit dem 14lötigen Silber weiter. Kaiser Leopold I. bestätigte einige Jahre danach, am 23. Juli 1660, die alte Ordnung, befahl aber am 9. August 1662 einen Neudruck der Grazer Goldschmiedeordnung, der die Resolution vom 10. April 1652 berücksichtigt. Für die ganze Steiermark wird hiermit die 13lötige Silberprobe und für Goldarbeiten die Feine von 16 bis 18 Karat - aber nicht darunter - zugelassen. Im übrigen ist an der Goldschmiedeordnung von 1592 nichts von Belang verändert worden. - Etw. wasserrandig und gebräunt.

Vane, Henry]:
[London], 1662. [3]-134,[1]pp. Small quarto. Modern three quarter black calf and cloth, spine gilt. Lightly tanned, an occasional small stain. Final four leaves repaired with some sixty words (in whole or in part) in facsimile. Final leaf mounted. Trimmed close, occasionally affecting pagination in upper margin. Good overall. First and only edition, the Frank Deering copy, with his gilt leather bookplate on the front free endpaper. Henry Vane was born in England in 1613, came to New England in 1635, and was elected governor of Massachusetts the following year, aged only twenty-three. Deeply religious, Vane was among the most radical of Puritans. He supported Anne Hutchinson during the Antinomian crisis, and became a close ally of John Cotton. Vane's stay in Massachusetts was tempestuous, and he returned to England in 1637 to become a member of the Long Parliament, though his interest in New England continued. Vane was instrumental in procuring the Rhode Island charter, and his friendly efforts to aid the New England colonies were appreciated by Roger Winthrop and Roger Williams. Soon after the fall of Cromwell and the restoration of the monarchy he was imprisoned for two years, convicted of treason, and executed. Lowndes says "THE TRYAL was written by a Sectarist in favor of Vane and printed by stealth." The text contains the speech he had intended to speak from the scaffold (but was forbidden by court order) which would have elaborated his revolutionary ideas on parliamentary supremacy and the compact between ruler and ruled, issues that resounded in colonial Americ … [Click Below for Full Description]

VAENIUS, Ernestus.
Brussels: Franciscus Foppens, 1662. Small 8vo (154 x 86 mm). [8], 60, [1], [3 blank] pp. Line-engraved title vignette & 28 engraved illustrations in text, some two to a page, most of female busts, four of animals' heads, the last two showing full-length female figures including a saint next to a palm tree. Faint offsetting of engravings; slight scuffing to extremities of binding,. Bound ca. 1790-1810 in French citron morocco, triple gilt fillet framing sides, smooth spine gold-tooled with fleurons and monogram AAP or AAR, black calf lettering-piece, board edges & turn-ins gilt, pale blue silk liners, vellum flyleaves, edges gilt (faint small stain on upper cover). Provenance: Pierre Bulteau de Préville, 18th-century engraved armorial bookplate by P. Giffart (mounted on title verso), his sale September 1727; unidentified owner, monogram on binding; George Hibbert (1757-1837), penciled note of acquisition at the Hibbert sale, 1829, shelfmark W3780; Laurent Currie, bookplate. *** Only Edition. A fine copy of an eccentric treatise on female looks. Vaenius derives his canon of beauty from verses of the Canticum Canticorum, and compares different facial types to specific animals. Each of the 14 chapters opens with a verse from the Song of Songs, and concludes with Vaenius' own(?) Latin verses. Many of the neat outline engravings of female heads or figures are paired with pictures of the relevant animal. At times the author interprets the biblical verses too literally, as if to buttress his physiological theories, but elsewhere his exegesis is straightforward and insightful.

La première édition, dédiée à Nicolas Fouquet, parut en 1656. Cet atlas fait partie de la série des quatre continents de Nicolas Sanson (Europe, Afrique, Asie, Amérique), publiés séparément entre 1647 et 1657. Chaque carte est accompagnée de sa description géographique puisée chez les auteurs anciens (Pline, Strabon), dans les récits des voyageurs (Linschoten, Purchas, J. de Laet) et dans les rapports des missionnaires jésuites. Premier de cette célèbre famille de cartographes, Nicolas Sanson (Abbeville, 1600 - Paris, 1667), dit Sanson d'Abbeville, étudia au collège des Jésuites d'Amiens. Initié à la géographie par son père, il publia, en 1627, une carte des Gaules qui attira l'attention du cardinal de Richelieu. Celui-ci le fit nommer géographe du roi, avec la charge d'ingénieur en Picardie. Par la suite, Louis XIII lui remit le brevet de conseiller d'État. Reconnu comme le fondateur de la cartographie française, Sanson est l'auteur de près de 300 cartes.

BARLAEUS CASPAR/BLAEU JOHANNES
Copper engraving, mm 422x535, colored. No text on verso. One of the most decorative and beatiful maps of Brazil ever published, among the first maps not from portuguese sources, drawn after actual surveys by Georg Markgraf and Elias Herckmanns, originally in Barlaeus's Rervm per Octennivm in Brasilia published by Blaeu in 1647 and later inserted in Blaeu's Atlas Major. Richly decorated with a highly interesting and decorative scene depicting life in a farm; the bottom part of the map depicts sea battles. The complete set of maps was also assembled into a large wall map, Brasilia qua parte paret Belgis. The maps then appeared in the Atlas Maior in 1662.

[DRAWINGS - CHINESE].
A series of 8 pen and ink drawings (5 coloured, 1 also highlighted in gold), illustrating a Chinese novel, possibly the 14th-century Sanguo yanyi or Romance of the Three Kingdoms. All mounted on European paper (6 on 3 different patterns of decorated paper). The paper of the drawings ranges from 23.5 x 14 cm to 24 x 15 cm. In the backing paper of number 7 one can make out an Amsterdam coat of arms watermark. It is difficult to see clearly but seems to follow the general style of Laurentius 71-95 (1662-1675). They show the following (outdoor and indoor scenes):1) 2 warriors on horseback, one of whom has just beheaded the other and carries his head away (the beheaded warrior has not yet fallen from his horse), while his superior watches on horseback with 2 attendants.2) a man standing with a spear in the prow of a boat, while 2 men and a woman sit at a tea table in the boat, which flies a flag and pennant.3) 5 people on 2 boats, one flying a flag and pennant.4) 4 soldiers bringing a woman to a dignitary at his house.5) a delegation visiting a dignitary.6) 2 men playing go, with 4 attendants and a guard.7) a dignitary at a writing table, with attendants and visitors.8) a seated dignitary with 6 standing figures, 1 with a document at a table.With this series, we include 2 woodblock prints (1 coloured) and 1 watercolour drawing:9) watercolour drawing of irises along a stream with hills in the background (17 x 22.5 cm)10) rectangular woodblock print of a Samauri at a tea ceremony (14 x 10 cm)11) octagonal woodblock print of a monk(?) riding a dragon-like horse, with an attendant o … [Click Below for Full Description]

Many leaves expertly remounted at gutter, touching text of A2, without loss of sense. Occasional slight shaving to upper margin touching pagination numerals. An anonymous narrative of the tribulations suffered by Charles II following defeat at the Battle of Worcester apparently 'issued by special command', likely in an attempt to profit from the Restoration. The terminal leaf bears a statement from the publisher announcing their intention to print a further volume should this first part find success - it would appear that this did not come to fruition. Rare, with ESTC locating copies of this octavo edition at only two locations in the British Isles (BL and Oxford), and one further in North America (Minnesota). Copies of the quarto edition are recorded at two British locations (BL and Oxford), with none elsewhere. ESTC R219459, Wing W1861.. First octavo edition. 8vo.
