        Edit Du Roy Donné à Paris, le 28 May 1664. Portant Establissement d¿une Compagnie des Indes Occidentales, pour faire tout le Commerce dans les Isles & terres fermes de l¿Amerique, & autres Païs; aux Concessions, Pouvoirs, Facultez, Droits, Exemmptions & Privileges y contenus.

      Chez la Veuve Saugrain, a l¿entrée du Quay de Gevres, du cote du Pont au Change, au Paradis, Paris 1664 - quarto, 18, [2] pp., light red smudge to upper blank margin of first page, otherwise a fine clean copy. This decree establishes the French West India Company. The company was formed by this Edit to control all of the French American colonies, already settled or to be settled in South America, the West Indies, and Canada. This well-known company was established for the purpose of opening up trade with America principally along the Amazon, and in Canada, Acadia, Newfoundland, Florida and the islands of the Antilles. The company was granted a monopoly on trade with America, which was to last for forty years. It was supposed to populate Canada, using the profits of the sugar economy that began in Guadeloupe. Its capital was six million pounds and its headquarters was in Le Havre. The stock of the Company was so considerable that in less than six months, 45 vessels were equipped, with which they took possession of all the places in their grant, and established commerce. Despite its special privileges it soon got into difficulties. It was badly hit by the war of 1666 and could not face that of 1672. Colbert would not take over the risks and the Company was dissolved by Royal command in 1674. The King paid its debts amounting to 3,025,000 livres and took its capital of 1,287,185 livres as reimbursement, and the Colonies were reunited to the State. Variant issue of Wroth and Annan, numbers 60 and 61. This edition not in Sabin, or European Americana. See JCB III, p. 111, for its description of a variant issue in that library. Maggs did not have a copy in their 1936 catalog The French Colonisation of America. Not in Staton & Tremaine, not in Lande, not in Beinecke Lesser Antilles. Henry Stevens had a copy of the 1675 revocation of the Company in their 1926 catalog of Rare Americana, which, coincidentally, was also printed by Veuve Saugrain. (It was priced at £ 31 10s, and was the first copy that the firm had met with).

      Amsterdam, Heinrich von Aken, 1664. - Äußerst seltene zweite Ausgabe von Zesens berühmtestem und wichtigstem Roman, dem ersten großen Roman der deutschen Barockliteratur. Das Buch ist die erste Erzählung aus Zesens eigener Erfindung. Die bürgerliche Liebesgeschichte mit poetischen Einlagen gilt als Zesens Dichtung-und-Wahrheit-Roman, in dem sich nach seinem eigenem Zeugnis viel Autobiographisches findet. "Das unerfüllbare Liebesverhältnis zu der schönen 'Menschengöttin' Rosemund gibt Gelegenheit zu einem wahren Kult mit den Sensationen des Gefühls- und Empfindungslebens. Erotisches wird fast mystisch gesteigert . Zesens flimmernde Sprache löst in unerhörter Art ihren Gegenstand in sinnliche lustbetonte Qualitäten auf, von der Lautmalerei bis zur erotischen Metaphorik in einer Landschaftsschilderung" (Max Wehrli). "Auch das Motiv des konfessionellen Ehehindernisses ist neuartig. Die Erzählung ist reich mit 'Kling-getichten' und anderen vermischt" (Seebaß ausführlich). Ab S. 299 ist die im gleichen Jahr in Hamburg separat erschienene 'Lustinne' abgedruckt, die "gebundene Lust-Rede von Kraft und Würkung der Liebe". Am Schluss ein Register von Zesens originellen Neologismen. Der Kupfertitel ist signiert "Der Wachchende", d. i. Martien le Coq (vgl. Thieme/Becker VII 145). – Anfangs leichte Wurmspuren im weißen Rand, sonst sehr schön. Ich kann nur 2 Exemplare im Handel der letzten 50 Jahre nachweisen. – VD17 23:239105D; Dünnhaupt 28.2; Otto 98; Goed. III 99, 18b. Vgl.

A final section consists of a Franco-Indian dictionary is the first time a Galibi seems lexicon. Some chapters also discuss Guadeloupe, Barbados and Martinique. Chaplain of the 700 settlers of the expedition sent in Guyana May 18, 1652, Antoine Biet accurately describes the second attempt at colonization. This experiment was a failure, the hundred settlers who survived it was forced to flee Cayenne to Suriname in January 1654 and then to Barbados, after suffering from tropical diseases and the fierce resistance of Galibis Indians. According Richarderie The Butcher "no relationship gives as much light as that of Biet Natural Guyana; He portrayed them in all their primitive simplicity. The vocabulary of their language is done with care "(Universal Library Travel) Ex-dono manuscript on the first cover page: "This book belongs to Mr. Adam Sharon." - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Reliure de l'époque en plein veau brun. Dos à cinq nerfs orné de caissons et fleurons dorés, reste d'une étiquette de titre manuscrite. Toutes tranches mouchetées rouges. La reliure a été habilement restaurée. Déchirure marginale restaurée en marge basse de la page de titre. Quelques infimes salissures. L'ouvrage se divise en trois parties : la première relate l'établissement de la colonie et de son voyage jusqu'à Cayenne, la seconde est une suite d'observations sur les quinze mois passés par l'auteur là-bas et la dernière traite du tempérament du pays, de la fertilité de la terre, des us et coutumes des autochtones. Une dernière partie est constituée d'un dictionnaire franco-amérindien, c'est la toute première fois qu'un lexique galibi parait. Certains chapitres évoquent également la Guadeloupe, la Barbade et la Martinique. Aumônier des 700 colons de l'expédition envoyée en Guyane le 18 mai 1652, Antoine Biet relate avec précision la deuxième tentative de colonisation. Cette expérience fut un échec, la centaine de colons qui y survécut fut contrainte de fuir Cayenne vers le Surinam en janvier 1654 puis vers la Barbade, après avoir souffert des maladies tropicales et de la farouche résistance des Indiens Galibis. D'après Boucher de La Richarderie, « aucune relation ne donne autant de lumières que celle de Biet sur les naturels de la Guyane ; il les a dépeints dans toute leur simplicité primitive. Le vocabulaire de leur langue est fait avec soin » (Bibliothèque universelle des voyages) Ex-dono manuscrit sur la première page de garde : « Ce livre appartient à Mr. Adam de Saron ».

If the Palace of glory is not really a sequel, it's a second part provided by the author. It is not known why it was published by another publisher, perhaps this change, and the year between the two editions has created this continuous separation of two books .. New Edition for the Palace of the honor, originally published in 1663, and First edition for the Palace of glory. The first book is illustrated with a frontispiece allégogorique Chauveau and 12 boards inset coats of arms. Full Sheepskin brown vintage. Back tooled raised. Part of title in red morocco.

In addition to the science of heraldry, which contains all the heraldry books of the time, the Palace of honor is distinguished by several happy sigularités, including a chapter on all orders of chivalry in Europe, another on ceremonies, tournaments, battle cries; much of it is devoted to the history of the illustrious families of France. The Palace of Glory also include this part in consecrating families to France missing and some large families of Europe.

Outre la science du blason, que contient tous les livres d'héraldique du temps, le Palais de l'honneur se distingue par plusieurs sigularités heureuses, notamment un chapitre sur l'ensemble des ordres de chevalerie dans toute l'Europe, un autre sur les cérémonies, les tournois, les cris de guerre ; une grande partie est consacrée à l'histoire des illustres familles de France. Le Palais de la Gloire reprend d'ailleurs cette partie en la consacrant aux familles de France manquantes et certaines grandes familles d'Europe. L'ensemble des deux livres se signale par la qualité historique et les nombreuses anecdotes rapportées qui égayent la lecture.

Folio (324 x 215 mm). Nineteenth-century red morocco, triple fillet border, spine richly gilt in compartments, gilt lettered in two, edges gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt floral decorative roll to turn-ins, by Francis Bedford (his inkstamp front free endpaper verso); rebacked with original spine laid down.

Third folio edition, second enlarged issue, of Shakespeare's plays, generally regarded as the rarest of the 17th-century folio editions. An unknown number of copies is thought to have been destroyed in the Great Fire of London of 1666. The third folio is a reprint of the second (1632), but the second issue adds seven plays to the corpus, although of these only Pericles is now considered authentic. The first issue appeared with the portrait on the title page and the Jonson verses on the verso of the first leaf. For this second issue, the first two leaves were cancelled and replaced by a conjugate pair, with the portrait above the Jonson verses facing the title page which lists the seven added plays which were added on eleven supplementary quires. Provenance: John Pierpont Morgan's copy, with his gilt-stamped red leather armorial bookplate and shelf-mark, "W 11 A copy 3"; bought by him from Henry Sotheran & Co. in June 1896. The Sotheran invoice specifies this copy already to have been bound by Francis Bedford (1799?-1883), who was considered the leading English bookbinder of his time, surpassed only by the best French binders (ODNB).

Syriaci dictiones et particulas. - [Angebunden]: Notae Criticae in Novum Testamentum Syriacum [...]. [Von Aegidius Gutbirius / Ägidius Gutbier].

      Hamburg: o.V. [Selbstverlag des Autors] 1664; 1667.. 3 Bände in 1 Band. Titel, (30), 604 Seiten; Titel, (6), 146 Seiten, (62); Titel, (6), 55, (1 weiße) Seiten. Mit zusätzlichem gestochenem Titelblatt vor [I] von Bartholome Iselburg, dat. 1663, und etwas Buchschmuck. Kl. 8° (17 x 11,5 cm). Ledereinband der Zeit mit ornamentaler Rückenvergoldung im Rokokostil. [Hardcover / fest gebunden].. Ägidius Gutbier wurde in der Stadt Weissensee in Thüringen am 1. Septbr. 1617 geboren, sein Vater war dort Bürgermeister und stammte aus einer schlesischen Familie. Er war einer der bedeutendsten und gelehrtesten Orientalisten seiner Zeit. Er errichtete in Hamburg eine Druckerei im eigenen Hause, welche von 1664-67 bestand, und schnitt die Typen zu der Übersetzung des hier vorliegenden Neuen Testamentes (1663-64) sowie der dazugehörigen Werke "Lexicon Syriacum, continens omnes N. T. Syriaci dictiones et particulas" (1667) & "Notae criticae in N. T. Syriacum" (1667) unter erheblichen Mühen mit eigener Hand, wobei er den jakobitischen (westsyrischen) Schrifttypus wählte und die Bleilettern von dem Hamburger Schriftgießer Bartholomeus Voskens gießen ließ. Den syrischen Text versah er mit "lexikalischen und textkritischen Hilfsmitteln. Mit diesen Beigaben stellt Gutbiers Edition eine beachtliche textkritische Leistung dar, die die Edition Widmannstetters an Wertschätzung übertraf" (Kayser, Hamburger Bücher 1491-1850, No. 45). Außer diesen Arbeiten hat er zahlreiche Schriften theologisch-philosophischen Inhaltes herausgegeben und Anderes handschriftlich hinterlassen; er starb noch im Jahre seiner letzten veröffentlichten Druckschrift, 1667 auf einer Reise nach Thüringen. - Darlow/Moule 8966 kennt mehrere Druckvarianten der ersten Ausgabe und des Vorwortes: "At least four varieties exist of the printed title [...] they may be distinguished by the ornament appearing above the word 'Hamburgi' [...] Var. d). interlacing curves" (bei unserer Ausgabe zutreffend); "first sheet of preface, signed 'a', ends with catchword 'usus'" (bei unserer Ausgabe zutreffend). Der selbstdruckende Übersetzer war hier wohl in dauerhafter Redaktion an seinem eigenen Werk tätig. - Der robuste Ledereinband leicht berieben. Rücken etwas stärker berieben, mit kleinen Wurmgängen an den Kapitalen und (oberflächlich) auf dem Hinterdeckel. Papier gleichmäßig gebräunt und stellenweise minimal fleckig. Hinteres Innengelenk leicht abgeplatzt. - Aus dem Besitz des bekannten Rostocker Alttestamentlers Gottfried Quell mit dessen Besitzeintrag "Godofredus Quell" in Tinte auf den Titelseiten. - Insgesamt sehr gut erhaltenes und seltenes Exemplar der druckgeschichtlich bedeutenden und gesuchten Werke in einem Band. - Sammlung Böhme 366 (mehrere Ausgaben). - Schröder, Hamb. Schriftsteller III, 1377.

        OEDIPUS CHIMICUS. Institutiones Chimicae Prodromae. Obscuriorum Terminorum & Principiorum Chimicorum, Mysteria Aperiens & resolvens. Opusculum, omnibus Medicinae, & Chimiae Studiosis, lectu perquàm utile & necessarium.

      Apud Hermannum à Sande 1664 Testo latino. Cm.13x7,7. Pg.(12), 192, (8). Legatura in piena pergamena rigida con unghie e laccetti di chiusura, sempre pergamenacei. Titoli manoscritti al dorso. La seconda carta del volume è collazionata su carta diversa dalle altre: al recto vi compare una vignetta allegorica raffigurante Edipo e la Sfinge, al verso l'incipit della Dedicatoria al Sig. "Francisco De Le Böe, dicto Sylvio". Una carta fuori testo raffigurante la "Divina Metamorphosis" (medaglia di Praga, 1648). Cartiglio decorativo inciso in fine al testo. Al foglio di guardia antica notazione di proprietà manoscritta, con timbro in ceralacca e piccolo cartiglio ritagliato e incollato. Figlio di un ministro luterano, il medico e matematico Johann Joachim Becher (Speyer, 1635 - 1682) fu in gioventù al servizio dell'Elettore di Mainz in qualità di docente di medicina presso il locale ateneo. Ebbe vita assai avventurosa, svolgendo importanti mansioni in Baviera, a Vienna, in Olanda e a Londra. Il presente costituisce il suo testo più conosciuto. Si tratta di un approfondito studio di chimica e di alchimia, in cui il Becher (nome latinizzato Becherius) tratta delle principali sostanze e operazioni chimiche. In particolare si spinge a confutare la fondatezza dei quattro elementi aristotelici (aria, acqua, terra e fuoco) e dei tre principi della qualità di Paracelso (zolfo, sale, mercurio) dando così impulso alle nuove teorie già esposte dall'Helmont e dal Boyle. Così il Neville dipinge l'Opera: "an important book that contains the germs of the ideas that were later (by G.E. Stahl) developed into the theory of phlogiston". Ancora si legge in "Cristina di Svezia. Scienza ed alchimia nella Roma barocca" (Dedalo Editore): "Nel 1664 Becher aveva pubblicato il suo "Oedipus Chimicus", nel quale non solo era ripresa tutta la problematica ermetico - paracelsiana relativamente alla chimica ed ai suoi concetti fondamentali, ma anche quella dei diversi tipi di linguaggio usati dai chimici, che dimostravano che lo studio della chimica era antichissimo. La Monade geroglifica di John Dee, le ricerche di mitologia alchemica di Michael Maier, e quelle di Kircher, i caratteri cinesi e i geroglifici egiziani erano gli strumenti per svelare i modi attraverso i quali, in passato, era stato trasmesso il sapere alchemico". Per meglio individuare la complessità del messaggio del Becher, si riporta integralmente l'Indice dei Titoli dell'Opera: "Prima Materia; Duo Principia substantiae: Sulphur & Sal; Tria Principia qualitatis: sal, sulphur & Mercurius; Quatuor Elementa: Ignis, aër, aqua, terra Chimicè sumpta; Quinque requisita generationis: Calor, sperma Menstruum, Matrix, pondus; Sex Operationes reales: Accretio, Decretio, Solutio, Coagulatio, Destructio, plusquamperfectio; Septem requisita Artificis: Termini, instrumenta, materiae, operationes, scripta Chimica, Methodus Chimiae studendi, Methodus Chimicè Philophandi". L'Opera è dedicata a Franz Le Böe, noto con lo pseudonimo di Sylvius (1614 - 1672), fondatore a Leida del primo laboratorio universitario di chimica. Esistono due edizioni del 1664 della presente Opera, ed a tutt'oggi non è chiarita la diatriba su quale di esse abbia visto la luce per prima: oltre alla presente di Francoforte l'altra fu stampata a Amsterdam da Elizeum Weyerstraten.

      Amsterdam, Heinrich von Aken, 1664.. . Äußerst seltene zweite Ausgabe von Zesens berühmtestem und wichtigstem Roman, dem ersten großen Roman der deutschen Barockliteratur. Das Buch ist die erste Erzählung aus Zesens eigener Erfindung. Die bürgerliche Liebesgeschichte mit poetischen Einlagen gilt als Zesens Dichtung-und-Wahrheit-Roman, in dem sich nach seinem eigenem Zeugnis viel Autobiographisches findet. "Das unerfüllbare Liebesverhältnis zu der schönen 'Menschengöttin' Rosemund gibt Gelegenheit zu einem wahren Kult mit den Sensationen des Gefühls- und Empfindungslebens. Erotisches wird fast mystisch gesteigert ... Zesens flimmernde Sprache löst in unerhörter Art ihren Gegenstand in sinnliche lustbetonte Qualitäten auf, von der Lautmalerei bis zur erotischen Metaphorik in einer Landschaftsschilderung" (Max Wehrli). "Auch das Motiv des konfessionellen Ehehindernisses ist neuartig. Die Erzählung ist reich mit 'Kling-getichten' und anderen vermischt' (Seebaß ausführlich). Ab S. 299 ist die im gleichen Jahr in Hamburg separat erschienene 'Lustinne' abgedruckt, die "gebundene Lust-Rede von Kraft und Würkung der Liebe". Am Schluss ein Register von Zesens originellen Neologismen. Der Kupfertitel ist signiert "Der Wachchende", d. i. Martien le Coq (vgl. Thieme/Becker VII 145). - Anfangs leichte Wurmspuren im weißen Rand, sonst sehr schön. Ich kann nur 2 Exemplare im Handel der letzten 50 Jahre nachweisen. - VD17 23:239105D. Dünnhaupt 28.2. Otto 98.

Or a Discourse on Forest-Trees, and the Propagation of Timber in His Majesty's Dominions; As it was Deliver'd in the Royal Society the xvth of October, MDCLXII, Upon Occasion of Certain Quaeries Propounded to that Illustrious Assembly, by the Honorable the Principal Officers, and Commissioners of the Navy. To which is Annexed Pomona: Or, an Appendix Concerning Fruit-Trees in Relation to Cider, The Making and Several ways of Ordering it. Published by Express Order of the Royal Society. Also, Kalendarium Hortense: Or, Gard'ners Almanac, Directing what he is to do Monethly, throughout the Year. Three parts in one volume, quarto (284 x 186 mm). Early nineteenth-century half calf, brown morocco label, spine tooled in blind with gilt rules, marbled paper sides, all edges speckled brown, marbled endpapers. First and third titles printed in red and black, first title with the engraved arms of the Royal Society. Two woodcut illustrations in the texts, woodcut historiated initials. Lacks the errata leaf at rear. Old ink correction to one letter on title page, small round paper label to upper front joint, contemporary to binding. Binding rubbed, short split to head of front joint, title page and facing license leaf a little soiled, light waterstaining to most foremargins. An excellent copy. First edition of Evelyn's most celebrated book and famously the first book to be printed by order of the Royal Society, which had been founded four years previously. During the 1640s and 1650s production of glass and iron increased rapidly and the wood used to fire the furnaces and factories was not being replaced by fresh planting. This led to a serious shortage of wood from which the Navy could construct ships. Evelyn appealed to the king for a concerted campaign of reforestation and claimed in his preface that he had induced landowners to plant many millions of trees. Alexander Hunter, who edited five editions of Sylva in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, wrote in his preface that "soon after the publication of the Sylva... the Spirit for Planting increased to a high degree; and there is reason to believe that many of our ships, [used] in the last war... were constructed from Oaks planted at that time." The appendix Pomona includes a collection of five contributions on the making of cider by other writers, Mr Beale, Sir Paul Neil, John Newburgh, Doctor Smith and Capt. Taylor. First editions of Evelyn's Sylva are usually found either recently rebound or in poor condition, and usually rebacked - copies in this condition are far from common.

        Fabrica, et uso del compasso di proportione, dove insegna a gli artefici il modo di fare in esso le necessarie divisioni, e con varii problemi usuali mostra l'utilita di questo stromento

      Bologna: Presso Gio. Battista Ferroni, 1664. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. Very good antiquarian condition. Small 4to. Collation: *4 A-X4 Y6 [Z]2, COMPLETE. [8], 172, [12] pp. With 4 folding copper-engraved plates and numerous woodcut diagrams illustrating the text. Well bound in sturdy 20th-century Italian quarter vellum over mottled boards, smooth spine lettered in black. Outer margins of title and two subsequent leaves reinforced. One leaf with a small loss of text and some rubbing. Some very light occasional dampstaining. Closely cropped in several instances with slight loss to Fig. 12 and 16 at end. An important work which describes the construction and use of the sector, or proportional compass, variously described by Galileo as his "geometrical and military compass." It is justly considered to be the first truly "modern" calculating instrument which offered an extraordinary range of applications and remained in constant use for over two hundred years. The device was immediately embraced by practioners of a number of disciplines, most notably architects (some of whom may have struggled to perform even elementary arithmetical operations). It is a remarkable fact that the disciplines to which the sector was applied, particularly architecture, fortification, and surveying (traditionally classed as mechanical sciences), soon emerged as mathematical sciences in the seventeenth century. Indeed there is evidence that the universality of these practical applications helped to make possible the universality of science at a theoretical level. Hence this technology was not simply a consequence of advances in science. Rather, the technology helped make possible the mathematical sciences that led to modern science. The sector was originally invented by Galileo for calculations in surveying, geometry, gunnary, dialling, gauging, engineering, mathematical operations, and even accounting. It is no exaggeration the invention of the sector heralded the scientific revolution of the Baroque era. Throughout the 17th century, and well into the 18th, the sector underwent considerable improvement. To aid the architect, Ottavio Revesi Bruti developed a particular type of proportional compass, the "archisesto," which had proportional lines for drawing the architectural orders (see his "Archisesto per formar con facilità li cinque ordini d?'architettura," Vicenza, 1627). During the 19th century the proportional compass was gradually replaced by highly refined slide rules which survived over the years in the technical studios of engineers and architects up until the recent advent of the computer. At the time of Casati's publication of the "Fabrica et uso del compasso di proportione," Galileo's own instructional manual had become almost unfindable, in Italy or elsewhere (as is attested in Casati's preface), while demand for information about the sector increased exponentially. Casati was Jesuit polymath who published erudite works on optics, physics, and mathematics. In the present well-illustrated volume he presents, through a series of practical demonstrations, as much information as was then known about the sector and its applications in multiple fields of inquiry. Very curious contemporary inscription on title page: "Da mihi in disco caput Giovannis Battiste" (Matt. 14:8 -- Bring me the head of St. John the Baptist on a plate). Cinti 156. Ricccardi I, 271 ("Raro"). Sommervogel VI, 78.

        Voyage de la France equinoxiale en l'isle de Cayenne, entrepris par les François en l'année MDCLII

      Chez François Clouzier 1664 - - Chez François Clouzier, à Paris 1664, in-4 (17x24cm), (24) 432pp., relié. - Edition originale. Reliure de l'époque en plein veau brun. Dos à cinq nerfs orné de caissons et fleurons dorés, reste d'une étiquette de titre manuscrite. Toutes tranches mouchetées rouges. La reliure a été habilement restaurée. Déchirure marginale restaurée en marge basse de la page de titre. Quelques infimes salissures. Bon exemplaire. L'ouvrage se divise en trois parties : la première relate l'établissement de la colonie et de son voyage jusqu'à Cayenne, la seconde est une suite d'observations sur les quinze mois passés par l'auteur là-bas et la dernière traite du tempérament du pays, de la fertilité de la terre, des us et coutumes des autochtones. Une dernière partie est constituée d'un dictionnaire franco-amérindien, c'est la toute première fois qu'un lexique galibi parait. Certains chapitres évoquent également la Guadeloupe, la Barbade et la Martinique. Aumônier des 700 colons de l'expédition envoyée en Guyane le 18 mai 1652, Antoine Biet relate avec précision la deuxième tentative de colonisation. Cette expérience fut un échec, la centaine de colons qui y survécut fut contrainte de fuir Cayenne vers le Surinam en janvier 1654 puis à Barbade, après avoir souffert des maladies tropicales et de la farouche résistance des Indiens Galibis. D'après Boucher de La Richarderie, «aucune relation ne donne autant de lumières que celle de Biet sur les naturels de la Guyane ; il les a dépeints dans toute leur simplicité primitive. Le vocabulaire de leur langue est fait avec soin» (Bibliothèque universelle des voyages). Ex-dono manuscrit sur la première page de garde : "Ce livre appartient à Mr. Adam de Saron".

        Le Manifique Carousel fait sur le fleuue de l'Arne a Florence, pour le Mariage du Grand Duc

Oblong 8vo., 142 x 175 mm, bound in early twentieth-century full brown morocco, gilt lettered spine. Paris: Chez Jean Sauve, 1664. |~||~||~||~| This rare suite of engravings with title form the complete festival book produced in Paris to celebrate the marriage of Cosimo II, Duke of Tuscany, to Maria Maddalena of Austria. Cosimo had been tutored by Galileo who dedicated his Sidereus Nuncius to him when he published it in 1610. The engravings document the mock naval battle between the Argonauts and the armada of Colchis performed as part of the wedding celebration on the Arno before invited wedding guests. The ships and floats were designed by Giulio Parigi, with the exception of two by Jacopo Ligozzi and one by Ludovico Cardi da Cigoli. The prints are derived from Remigio Cantagallina's etchings issued at the time of the wedding, and printed in reverse from the originals. The inscriptions in the lower margin contain variations in spelling and wording and additional inscriptions identifying the characters in the ships and floats. OCLC lists only two copies of the original 1608 edition, of which one is a fragment, and one copy of a 1662 edition published by Baltasar Moncornet. They also list a 1664 edition published by Giffart with no holdings. Vinet, Bibliographie Methodique et Raisonne Beaux-arts 607. Lipperheide 2743 (Moncornet edition).

This copy with the German engraved title, bearing the Latin cancel slips pasted over the German text. Few books have captured the sense of the Baroque more than this extensive survey of European fountains, which is the most comprehensive of its time. All the plates are unsigned except for the opening engraved title, signed Abraham Aubry and plate 100 in Part III by Balthasar Schwan. The remaining engravings are by anonymous printmakers. Georg Andreas Böckler (ca. 1617-1687), an Alsatian architect and engineer, was commissioned by the publisher to add descriptive text to the collection of engravings which he had assembled. Parts I-II are on the theory of hydraulics, fountain building, and the different types of fountains. Part III surveys grand pleasure fountains from Italian, French, and German designs. Part IV covers palaces, gardens, grottoes, topiary mazes, labyrinths and garden pavilions. Some of the plates are clearly after fountains designed by Bernini and Giambologna. Binding scuffed, some browning to the text, but the plates remain in clean, bright, strong impressions. A handsome copy. Millard, Northern European 7. Berlin Katalog 3579. Hunt I, 295. Cicognara 886.

        Corpus Juris Civilis

      1664. [ROMAN LAW]. Corpus Juris Civilis. Two volumes in one. [24], 1037, [3]; [2], 820, [2] pp. 8vo., 195 x 116 mm, bound in contemporary German pigskin, remains of two ties at fore-edge, edges stained red. Amsterdam: Johannes Blaeu, Louis and Daniel Elzevier, 1664. |~||~||~||~| Editio Nova, Prioribus Correctior. A fine edition of the most comprehensive digest of Roman legislation, the basis for all modern civil law. The work was first compiled by order of the Byzantine Emperor Justinian I, and the first three parts, The Institutes, Pandects and Codex, appeared between 529 and 535. A fourth part, the Novellae, was added subsequently, containing a collection of Imperial legislation up to the year 565. After a four century lull in classical scholarship, the eleventh century witnessed a revival of interest in Roman law in western Europe. Copies of the Corpus again began to be copied in great abundance as they had been when the work was first compiled in the sixth century, and the work certainly acted as a guide to the foundation of modern national legal systems throughout Europe. The title itself, "Corpus Juris Civilis," was a sixteenth century application. The full page engraved title page, in contemporary hand-colouring, shows a portrait of Justinian surrounded by allegorical figures, with Justice at the top. The present copy also contains copious manuscript notes in a contemporary hand. An excellent copy.
