        BUCKINGHAM Both Shyre and Shire towne describ.

      Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain. Roger Rea. 1662-1665, English edition. - Copper engraving. Later colour. Size: 50 x 38 cm. (19½ x 15 inches) Good condition. Cut close at left and right hand sides, but enough added margin for mounting and framing. Top margin strengthened. A closed tear (3 inches), runs from the bottom up to the shield of Thomas of Wodstoke on the right. This has an old repair, and is scarcely noticeable. A beautiful map of Buckinghamshire from Speed's Theatre. Inset plans of the market towns of Buckingham and Redding, the latter being a strange choice given that it lies in the county of Berkshire - an indication that the other market towns in Buckinghamshire were not large or prosperous. Embellished with cartouches, cherubs and coats of arms belonging to the titled families of the county. Decorated scale at bottom with dividers above, and compass rose to the right.

        Hortorum libri IV. Cum disputatione de cultura hortensi.

      Paris, Typographia Regia, 1665. 4to (255 x 198 mm). pp. (xxvi including frontispiece), 219 with engraved frontispiece, engraved vignette with royal arms on title, nine engraved head- and tailpieces, and six engraved initials. Contemporary red morocco, spine in 6 compartments with gilt ornaments and lettering, sides with gilt coat of arms of Louis XIV and gilt border lines, inside dentelles, gilt edges. A superbly bound copy of the first edition of Rapin's celebrated poem on gardens, and a fine piece of book design. René Rapin (1621-1687), a Jesuit, wrote this work in imitation of Virgil's 'Georgics'. It is divided into four books, on the flower garden, parkland and trees, water, and the orchard. It is followed by a work in prose, a debate between the 'ancients' and 'moderns' on gardening styles, in which Rapin endorses the 'modern' style. This work enjoyed immense renown, and was translated into English by John Evelyn.//"On the threshold of this period the French garden found its earliest poets. René Rapin, the learned Jesuit who wrote so many books, published in 1665 a poem called 'Hortorum libri quattuor'. This was in undisguised imitation of Virgil's 'Georgics', but aimed at giving a supplement on the province of the garden, which the Roman poet had neglected. Rapin had already seen something of the development of gardens in the grand siècle, and this appears in much of what he wrote; but he chiefly concerns himself with the gardens of the time of Maria de Medici and Henry IV. All that he writes in his first book, 'The flower garden', is what is demanded by the usual theorists; and about flowers he only gives pretty myths in the style of Ovid. But in the second book he is inspired with new ideas, the exhaustive treatment of the park (nemus): he says that when you step out of the garden the park must at once appear as a stage formally arranged. The trees must be in the form of the quincunx, with straight lines and right angles, although he also likes slanting lines and circular arches in some places. All the paths have to be provided with fine sand or closely mown grass, and at the sides the beeches or cypresses have to be clipped so as to make straight walls, but the lighter branches may be worked into a thousand shapes and mazes of any kind. He is full of praise for the oak as a good forest tree, and he is emphatically opposed to the clipping of oaks, using all his rhetoric and calling down all mythological punishments upon the heads of the desecrators of trees. This care for the park and its cultivation is by no means unfamiliar in Renaissance times, but the close connection of its main design with that of the garden points to a period which is still to come. In the same way the third book, which treats of water, adhering to all the fantastic ideas of the Renaissance, rejoicing in every one of the innumerable water-devices, and demanding a great extension and development of cascades, does try most energetically to enforce strict regularity in the domain of water. It is admitted that tricks of teasing waters in grottoes, and pumice and shells for decoration, are all wonderful attractions for the people on festival days; but anyone who is sensible, large-minded and thoughtful is fond of great sheets of water, and canals like rivers: it is to sing of these that his lyre shall be strung" (Marie Louise Gothein, History of garden art pp. 431-2). Some contemporary notes in a neat handwriting in the text and six leaves added with supplementary manuscript notes.//Provenance: Name of André advocat à la cour 1764 and a stamp of 'Seminaire de Langres' on title.//Hunt 324.

        Astronomia Reformata

      Bologna Heirs of Vittorio Benacci 1665. - Scarce first edition of Riccioli’s anti-Copernican, Tychonic geo-centrist cosmology, presenting an astronomy reformed, so he claims, of theoretical as well as observational errors, and considered a conclusion to the Almagestum novum of 1651. As the Jesuits’ leading astronomer, his observational and experimental achievements offered significant refinements of Galilean quantitative experimental procedures in terms of accuracy, and although intended to refute Galileo, his results often unwittingly confirmed them.

        HISTOIRE NATURELLE ET MORALE DES ILES ANTILLES DE L'AMERIQUE

      Rotterdam. 1665.. Engraved title, title-leaf, [32],583,[13]pp. plus three folding plates. Forty-four copper plate engravings. Quarto. Old vellum. Vellum dust soiled, small portion of spine lacking, some occasional light foxing or tanning. Bottom margin of one folding plate trimmed, slightly affecting explanation. Another folding plate neatly detached. Overall a very nice copy. The second French edition. This copy contains the armorial bookplates of Mathew Wilson and Frances Mary Richardson Currer. Currer (1785-1861) was a renowned British book collector who occasionally had privately printed catalogues of her collection produced. Her library, said to have been comprised of some twenty thousand fine books, was sold through Sotheby's in 1862. "The books were all in choice condition, many with fine bindings...The books contain an heraldic book-plate, and are generally noticeable for their fine condition" - DNB. Mathew Wilson was Currer's grandfather or father (both were of the same name), of Eshton Hall, Yorkshire. This important work on the islands of the Caribbean, with interesting information on Florida, Georgia, and the Eskimos, was originally published in French in 1658, its main purpose being the encouragement of Huguenot emigration to America. Its greatest contribution was the impressive marshalling of contemporary information on the Caribbean islands, especially the French and British colonies developing as sugar plantations. However, Rochefort also includes a long account of an "Apalacite" kingdom of Indians said to exist in Florida and present-day Georgia, fanciful in its overall picture, but with some basis in fact. Besides this excursion, there is also a brief account of Greenland Eskimos, and one of the illustrations provides perhaps the best contemporary graphic image of both Eskimos and their garb. It is the Caribbean section, however, which is most significant, and therein are found detailed descriptions of the European settlement of the islands and their natural history, in perhaps the most useful single source of the century. Everett Wilkie has published a detailed article concerning this book, which supplies a wealth of detailed discussion of the book, its authors and text.

      *** Kobberstukket kort over området mellem Hamburg og Lübeck. 43,5 x 58,5 cm. Med indsat specialkort: " Grundriss von Oldesloh. Anno 1382 ". Kobberstiksarbejdet er udført af Andres Lorensen Rodtgiesser, Husum. Kortet er udgivet af Johannes Blaeu i Amsterdam ca. 1665. Gammel - formentlig samtidig - håndkolorering. Bagsidetekst på spansk. Papiret er med vertikal midterfold som ved udgivelsen. Papirmål : 45 x 62 cm. - Godt eksemplar.. Johannes Mejer (1606-1674), kartograf fra Husum i Slesvig.I perioden 1638 til 1648 opmålte han Slesvig og Holsten. En række af disse kort blev gengivet i bogen "Newe Landesbeschreibung der zwey Herzogthümer Sleswich und Holstein" med tekst af Caspar Danckwerth. Kortene var i sort / hvid og en kolorering vil derfor være senere. Oplagets størrelse kendes ikke, men der er vidnesbyrd om, at udover de aftalte eksemplarer blev der - uden Mejers godkendelse - fremstillet ialt ca. 21000 enkelttryk af hans kort.I 1656 erhvervede Johannes Blaeu i Amsterdam kobberpladerne, og han anvendte dem nogle år senere i sine store Atlasudgivelser på latin, fransk, hollandsk, tysk og spansk. I Blaeus udgaver har Johannes Mejers kort fået en titel på latin i stedet for tysk samt ( ofte, men ikke altid ) tekst på bagsiden - og de fleste eksemplarer er koloreret i samtiden.Johannes Mejers kort over Slesvig og Holsten fik en lang levetid: Frem til omkring år 1800 var de grundlaget for alle andre kort over Hertugdømmerne

The Codex Theodosianus is an official compilation of all laws enacted since the reign of Constantine that was commissioned by Emperor Theodosius II in 429 CE. Completed in 438 CE, and ratified that year by the senate, it was the standard legal text of the empire, one that superseded all earlier codes. It would later exert enormous influence on the barbarians who assumed control of the Western Empire. The Visigoths, Ostrogoths, Franks, Lombards and Burgundians used it as the basis for their legal codes. Godefroy's edition, which includes extensive commentary, was the first modern edition of the Codex. It remains a masterpiece of scholarship and erudition. This edition also contains additional notes by Antoine Marville. Graesse, Tresor de Livres Rares et Precieux 209. British Museum Catalogue (Compact Edition) 21:980.

        Micrographia:

      London: by Jo. Martyn, and Ja. Allestry, Printers to the Royal Society, and are to be sold at their Shop,, 1665. or some Physiological Descriptions of Minute Bodies made by Magnifying Glasses. With Observations and Inquiries thereupon. Folio (300 × 192 mm). Contemporary calf, gilt arms to covers, rebacked to style with endpapers renewed. Red morocco-backed folding box. Licence leaf facing title expertly laid down on antique paper, title in red and black, 38 engraved plates (of which 15 are folding) after Hooke and Sir Christopher Wren (2 plates titled in manuscript, as the Horblit copy), woodcut headpieces and initials. With the gilt supralibros of the Society of Writers to the Signet on both covers; bookplate and library label of William Morehead. Boards rubbed, corners just worn, small repair to verso of first plate, some plates trimmed across the platemarks (as often) but without loss to the image; a very good copy. First edition, first issue, of this "early landmark in microscopy, containing the first illustration of cells [plate xi]" (Horblit). Published under the aegis of the Royal Society, Hooke's observations were the first to be carried out with an improved compound microscope, and the first to describe the microscopic structure of tissue with the term "cell". The book reproduces the almost frantic series of observations made by Hooke in 1663 and 1664 as the young scientist (he was still in his twenties) peered through the lenses of his new microscope at anything he could find. His text ranges widely, finding space for discussion of microscopic fungi, the life cycle of the mosquito, the origin of lunar craters, as well as the origin of fossils (Hooke's proposal is the first sensible one in print). There is also the discussion of light and colour which led to his bitter dispute with Newton. The extent of Hooke's investigation and the precision of his account entirely devoted to microscopical examination made Hooke's work "probably the most influential book in the entire history of microscopy" (Norman). But it is the justly famous series of plates, engraved mostly from Hooke's drawings with some probably by Sir Christopher Wren, which ultimately distinguishes the book, made it a contemporary bestseller, and kept Pepys up all night staring at it in amazement. Here are the tiny, unregarded components of everyday life – a stinging nettle, for example, a louse, or the famous flea – blown up with a startling degree of detail and exactness not to be equalled until the age of the electron microscope. This discovery of a new world-within-a-world had a profound influence on contemporary perceptions of the everyday world. The disorientating effect of the new perspective is memorably captured in Swift's descriptions of Lilliput and Brobdingnag in Gulliver's Travels.

        The Kingdome of Great Britaine and Ireland.

      Are to be sold by Roger Rea the Elder and younger at the Golden Crosse in Cornhill against the Exchange [1665]., [London], - Rare Roger Rea edition of Speed's map of Great Britain Double-page engraved map, fine contemporary outline hand colour, upper left and right margins skilfully repaired. The map bears the imprint of Roger Rea the Elder and Younger. The Reas had purchased the rights to Speed's work form William Garrett in 1589, who had previously purchased them from the widow of William Humble in the same year. Skelton suggests that the father and son intended a new edition of the atlas for the Restoration, of 1660. However, the atlas would appear not to have been published until 1665. This is borne out by an advertisement in the Term Catalogue by the subsequent owners of the plates, Thomas Bassett and Richard Chiswell, in 1675:"Mr John Speed's. Geography of the Kingdoms of England, Scotland, and Ireland. together with his Prospect. all in one entire Volume, hath been, for seven Years past, out of Print, the greatest part of an Impression, then newly Printed, being destroyed by the late dreadful Fire, 1666". This is borne out by the rarity of the Rea edition of the atlas. There is evidence that they planned an edition of 1666, as there are impressions of Sussex, Buckingham and Derby, with Rea's imprint, which bear that date. Rea would later sell the plates to Bassett and Chiswell, who would publish a new edition in 1676. Skelton 81.
