      ROMAE: ROMAE TYPIS REBVERENDAE CAMERAE APOSTOLICAE , 1675. In folio. Dim. 34,5x24 cm. Pp. (152)+570+(2)125+(15). Peso Kg. 2,500. Edizione del 1675 dell'importante trattato sulle carceri romane scritto da Giovanni Battista Scanaroli (1579-1665) originario di Modena e vescovo di Sidona. Scanaroli, avvocato dei poveri a Roma e delegato della Congregazione per le visite alle prigioni, fu colui che con più competenza identificò le problematiche giuridiche ed assistenziali delle carceri romane nel XVII secolo Lo scopo principale dell'opera non era meramente giuridico, sebbene Scanaroli fosse competente in quell'ambito, ma una difesa dei carcerati, un tentativo di aiuto umanitario per migliorare la loro situazione. Scanaroli fornisce un'accurata descrizione della suddivisione interna delle carceri, ciò che accadeva e le varie situazioni a cui assisteva: usi e abusi; provvigioni per i carcerati, le meretrici; correzione; carcerazione dei figli, coniugi e clero; visite giuridiche; cauzione; le varie punizioni (supplizi, mutilazione dei membri, fustigazione, carcere a vita) in base alla colpa; le spese; testimoni; trattamento degli ebrei; alimenti. Una parte dedicata alle torture inflitte ai carcerati: Scanaroli analizza il passaggio da un tormento all'altro durante la tortura ed esorta ad ascoltare il parere dei periti per evitare eventuali decessi riportando casi realmente accaduti. L'autore riporta la testimonianza di un chirurgo delle carceri che descrive la procedura corretta da applicare nella tortura, indica ogni minima azione da compiere. Alla fine appendice con frontespizio proprio che riporta le varie bolle pontificie in materia; le varie tasse nelle varie carceri d'Italia (trasporto, spese di personale); decisioni della Sacra Romana Rota; affitto delle carceri di via Torre di Nona; decreti ecc... Bellissima xilografia a piena pagina che mostra un carcerato legato in trazione per la tortura della corda. Bella legatura in mezza pergamena settecentesca. Di grandi dimensioni. Antiche note manoscritte. Importante opera storica, tuttora di grande attualità. Raro, solo 11 copie censite su ICCU. Copertina settecentesca in mezza pergamena a cinque nervi con tasselli in pelle al dorso in buone condizioni generali con lievi usure e piccole parti mancanti ai margini e dorso. Legatura in ottime condizioni. All'interno le pagine si presentano in buone condizioni con fioriture e qualche pagina brunita. Lievi gore d'umidità marginali (all'angolo inferiore destro di quasi tutto il volume non inficianti il testo; al margine destro da pag. 85 sino alla fine; al margine di piegatura delle ultime 12 carte). Edition of 1675 of the important treaty on roman jails written by Giovanni Battista Scanaroli (1579-1665) from Modena and bishop of Sidona. Scanaroli, lawyer of poor people in Rome and member of the Congregation for visitations in prisons, with this work had the merit to identify juridical and assistance problems of roman prisons during the XVII century. The main aim of the work was a defence to prisoners, an attempt to help their situation. Scanaroli provides an accurate description of the internal division of prisons, what happened and the different situations he saw: usages and abusations; correction; imprisonment of sons, parents and clergy; juridical visitations; different punishments (mutilations of parts of the body, fustigation, life-long imprisonment) expenses; witnesses; treatment of jewish people; food. A part dedicated to tortures for prisoners: Scanaroli analyzes the passages to torments and esortates to listen to the opinions of technics to avoid the death of prisoners during torture. He also describes cases really happened and the testimony of a prison surgery who describes the correct procedure to apply during torture indicating each single action to do. At the end appendix with its own title page with the different decrees of Pope; the taxes in italian prisons (carriage of prisoners); decisions of the Sacra Romana Rota; rental of the prisons of Torre di Nona; decrees etc... Very beautiful full-page woodcut showing a prisoner during a torture. Very beautiful half parchment cover of the XVIII century. Big size. Ancient manuscripted notes. Important historical work, of great actuality. Scarce copy. Half parchment cover of the XVIII century with five nerfs and leather spine title labels in good general conditions slightly worn with little missing parts in the edges and spine. Binding in very good conditions. Inside pages are in good conditions with foxings and some yellowings. Slight humidity stains in the edges (in the lower right corner of almost all the volume not ruining the text; in the right edge from pag. 85 until the end; in the folding edge of the last 12 pages).

        The History of the Valorous and Witty Knight Errant, Don Quixote, of the Mancha. Translated out of the Spanish; now newly Corrected and Amended.

      R. Scot, T. Basset, J. Wright, R. Chiswell/Richard Hogkinson, London. 1675, 1672. - Third edition. The first part was originally published in 1612 and the second in 1620; reprinted in 1652. Folio. pp [viii], 137, [v], 273. Full leather with what appears to be a nineteenth-century rebacking of eighteenth-century boards, raised bands lettered in gilt. Endpapers renewed. Thomas Shelton's translation is not only the first in English but also the first into any language. The first part, translated from the Brussels edition of 1607, appeared when Cervantes was still alive. There has been some speculation that Shelton may have known Cervantes but this is impossible to prove. Shelton's translation was until Motteux's translation of 1700 the most popular and still has its admirers, among them Samuel Putnam who produced one of the best translations of recent times.Two early ownership signatures on the title-page one of which has been rubbed away with some light damage to the paper. With the finely engraved bookplate on the front pastedown of Allan Heywood Bright (1862-1941) who was a Liberal politician, author of several books on Middle English literature and a great bibliophile. Tipped onto the front free endpaper is a short essay, presumably in his hand, "Don Quixote revived in the person of Ignatius Loyola".Covers rubbed. Some spotting to prelims and last pages. Very good.

        PETIT OFFICE DE LA SAINTE VIERGE

      Paris: Chez Senault, 1675. n. Hardcover. Beautifully Bound, Handsomely Engraved, and with Bared Sylvan Breasts. 181 x 127 mm (7 1/8 x 5"). [131] leaves. REMARKABLY BEAUTIFUL BLACK STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, ELEGANTLY AND LAVISHLY GILT, BY THOUVENIN (signed at base of spine), covers with elaborate broad frame featuring repeated palmettes, central panel with complex cornerpieces of massed antique tools, raised bands, spine compartments with red morocco cruciform inlay at center and with stylized tulips and multiple stippled leaves emanating from this central ornament, VERY LOVELY BROAD INNER GILT DENTELLES featuring 52 additional red morocco inlays (26 inside each cover), these within large "semis" rectangles with concave sides, the dentelles surrounding pink watered silk pastedowns bordered with a Neoclassical foliate and floral roll (facing a free endpaper of the same material and with the same decoration), all edges gilt, small and very expert repair just at top of joints. In marbled paper slipcase. ENGRAVED THROUGHOUT, WITH A GREAT VARIETY OF IMMENSELY CHARMING CALLIGRAPHIC INITIALS, HEADPIECES, TAILPIECES, BORDERS, FLOURISHES, AND OTHER DECORATIVE ELEMENTS. Front flyleaf with the bookplate of Hans Fürstenberg. Whalley, "The Art of Calligraphy," p. 200. Just the faintest hint of wear to joints, two minor blemishes on rear cover, discoloration at gutter of free endpapers (apparently from binder's glue), but A FINE COPY, with the extraordinarily handsome binding still glistening, and WITH THE TEXT NEARLY PRISTINE. The fine binding here covers a prayer book, with many elements of the Book of Hours, specially designed for the extremely devout Dauphine Marie-Christine of Bavaria (1660-90), daughter-in-law of Louis XIV. In light of the person for whom the book was intended, the headpiece on e3, showing two sylvan women with bare breasts, is of particular interest as the feature that makes ours a copy from the first issue of the book: later, more demure, copies have the breasts re-engraved so as to be covered. Another quite similar work by Senault (active 1669-80) is included as item #101 in the Walters Art Gallery "Two Thousand Years of Calligraphy." The calligraphic decoration displayed here shows both a very fertile imagination and an exceedingly skillful technique. Whalley puts Senault "in the tradition of the handwritten devotional works of the school of [Nicolas] Jarry. . . . If you could not afford to commission such a work," she says, "then this engraved prayer book, which looked so like some of the manuscript ones, made a good substitute." Our copy is distinguished by its previous owner, Fürstenberg (1890-1982), who put together perhaps the finest collection of French illustrated books ever assembled.

        Finmarche et Laplandiae Maritima Nieuwe Pascaert vande Kusten Finmarcken en Lapland Streckende van Dronten tot Archangel.

      1675 - Finmarche et Laplandiae Maritima Nieuwe Pascaert vande Kusten Finmarcken en Lapland Streckende van Dronten tot Archangel. Portolan chart of the North and Barents Seas near the northern region of Finland and northeast Russia from Frederick de Wit's Zee Atlas. Coastal cities, bodies of water and islands are named. The map is crisscrossed by rhumb lines emanating from various points on the grid. A splendidly illustrated title cartouche is at the lower left area of map; and various small illustrations of hunting scenes and whaling scenes are shown throughout the map. Vibrant, original color with gold and silver leaf detailing. Frederick de Wit, Sr. was the founder of a prominent Dutch family firm of three generations of cartographers working in Amsterdam. The firms output was prolific, and de Wit maps are often found in atlases by other cartographers. During his long working life, de Wit published 124 land maps and 27 sea charts that were distinguished by their high standard of workmanship, beauty, accuracy and fine coloration. The maps are typical of the style of the period, being completely executed and decorated with cartouches. The founder's son, a skilled mathematician and grandson together carried on the work of the firm, and published 130 maps, although the business did not survive for long after the elder de Wit's death. DE WIT, F Amsterdam, 1675 539.75 x 597 mm Original color Discoloration along paper edges; some foxing.

        THE NORTH PROSPECT OF CANTERBURY. Hoo. Johnson delineavit. W. Hollar fecit. This sculpture, Containing the prospect and Groundplott of Canterbury with the Cathedrall thereof is most humbly presented and dedicated [to Gilbert, Archbishop of Canterbury, i.e. Gilbert Sheldon, 1663-1677] by John Ogilby Esq his Majesties Cosmographer.

      [London]: John Ogilby. [c.1675] - Original etching. Image size 22 x 7.5 inches. Good impression with narrow margins, uncoloured as issued. Dedication in cartouche on right hand side and coat of arms on left hand side cartouche with title in scroll in centre. Mounted in recent acid-free card. Image shows traces of old folds but is otherwise in very good condition. This etching was originally published in the 1650s and reprinted several times by a variety of publishers. This is an Ogilby edition, and although it is impossible to date the impressions in an accurate sequence, this version would be from the second half of the seventeenth century, c.1675. Wenceslaus Hollar (1607-1677) was born in Prague and spent the years 1637-1644 and most of the period from 1652 onwards in England. His output of work was prolific: 'It is largely from Hollar's many etchings and drawings that we know what England looked like in the middle of the seventeenth century.' John Ogilby (1600-76) was a publisher and geographer, who was appointed cosmographer to Charles II in 1671. His collaboration with Hollar began in 1652, when the engraver produced the plates for Ogilby's translation of Virgil and continued until 1675, when he engraved the title page for Britannia, Ogilby's strip map road book of Britain. A fine view of the entire city of Canterbury in its rural setting, surrounded by fields and woods. PRINTS/MAPS CANTERBURY PRINTS/MAPS

      London. Printed for the author. 1675 - 4to. [2],38pp. Rebound in quarter calf, marbled boards. Title page a bit dusted otherwise a very good copy. Wing H 3858. Wellcome III, 323. Krivatsky 6124. Concerning a dispute between Huyberts, a physician, and the College of Physicians, whom he accuses of operating a monopoly. Huyberts cured a merchant who had been given up as a hopeless case by members of the College. The Collegians became angry, declaring "they would rather have him died, than that I, being none of their society, should have cured him" and proceeded to bring an action against him. There follows a long attack upon the College, their supposed anatomical discoveries, their bogus cures etc. (He quotes the opinion of Boyle in support of his position) and concludes that the College has done nothing to advance and much to impede the cause of medical progress. Towards the end of the pamphlet Huyberts inserts some autobiographical information from which we learn that he was brought up in Ireland and was trained at Trinity College under Jacob Rickman. He practised in Dublin for seven years and was made a free-man of the city. After a spell in Europe he returned to London where he gave free medicine and medical assistance to the poor. The College, he says, were shamed into proscribing "Bills of Direction to the Sick Poor," but with the proviso that the apothecaries should give the medicines free. Such charity at the expense of others was deservedly laughed at. The college, having had enough of Huyberts, set about putting him out of business. This pamphlet is the sole edition of the only work Huyberts is known to have produced. It provoked a prompt reply on behalf of the College by C. Goddall entitled The College of Physicians vindicated, and the true state of physick in this nation faithfully represented: an answer to a scandalous pamphlet, entitled The Cornerstone. (Wing G1090).

        A New & Exact Map of Europe...

      Henry OvertonA New & Exact Map of Europe...London: 1738Hand-colored copper-plate engraving 56" x 62 ?" framedEnglish cartography rose to prominence at the turn of the 18th century, and one of Britain’s most celebrated cartographers was Henry Overton. One of seven children, Henry Overton was born in 1675/6. His father, John Overton, was an illustrious London publisher specializing in cartographic prints. Through industriousness and business acumen John Overton had managed to acquire his stock of plates, as well as his own shop, from Peter Stent in 1665, after Stent died from the plaque. In 1700, John acquired John Speed’s plates from Christopher Browne, who in turn had purchased them from Bassett and Chiswell. Henry inherited the business and all its holdings in 1707. An adept business man himself, Henry successfully managed his father’s contracts, as well as added new enterprises to the family publishing firm. Not limited to cartography, Henry also published the more popular prints of the day on topics such as horse racing and hunting. He reissued John Speed’s County Maps in 1713 and 1743, a Plan of London in 1739, and contributed to Bowen’s Royal Atlas in 1763. Despite Overton’s excellent credentials, many of his works were cheaply distributed by other lesser known printers reappearing in pamphlets and rag sheets. It wasn’t until 1735 when the first copyright laws were established in England that such practices were curtailed.A New & Exact Map of Europe With the Prospect of Its Principal Citys After The Latest and Best Obseruations is one of Overton’s splendid creations. This highly ornamental wall map shows Europe during the time of Louis XIV. Europe is flanked by sixteen large detailed views of important cities: London, Rome, Paris, Amsterdam, Constantinople, Lisbon, Seville, Antwerp, Venice, Frankfurt, Prague, Cologne, Copenhagen, Kracow, and Danzig. Richly detailed and hand colored, this expansive European map is a historical picture of Europe’s political, and social climate during the 1700’s. Engraved any earlier or later then 1738 and Overton’s view of Europe might have looked very different. In the seventeenth century The Thirty Years War carved out the main ruling powers and their subsequent territories in Germany.? Just twenty years before this map was engraved England, the Dutch Republic, and France were involved in the Wars of Spanish Succession over who would take over the Spanish Throne. Overton’s Europe is that of Louis XIV’s, the longest ruling monarch in history (72 years). Made during a the century that saw the culmination of thought and reason through the Enlightenment, as well as political change through the French Revolution, Overton’s map is an excellent historical resource in its reflection of the current state of Europe. One can see that in Northern Europe, Finland has yet to become an autonomous country; it is still part of Sweden.? Overton’s eye for detail has included an exceptional number of cities and geographical features. The whole is enclosed within a richly colored, highly decorative floral border. Overton includes an inset over “Part of Africa,” which states, “Printed and Sold by Henry Overton at the White Horse. . . Newgate London.” This workshop had also been his father’s and was considered to be the most notable and powerful print seller in London. While is it unclear when this map was published, it must have been sometime after Henry’s succession into the family business in 1707. As a wall map its survival and exceptional quality is rare. Most maps were printed in bound form, thus protecting them for environmental factors, like light and humidity, as well as carelessness. Overton’s large map survives with its vivid original color in pristine condition. Not only does this map provide the collector a historically important map of Europe, it is a fine showcase for the cartographic engraving skills of Henry Overton and his workshop.
