        HISTORIE DI FAENZA. FATICA DI GIULIO CESARE TONDUZZI PUBLICATE DOPO LA DI LUI MORTE DA GIROLAMO MINACCI NIPOTE, & HEREDE DELL'AUTORE [...].

      PER GIOSEFFO ZARAFAGLI 1675 Solida legatura in perfette condizioni in piena pergamena; dorso liscio con tassello avana con autore e titolo impressi in oro; tagli blu. Elegante antiporta allegorica a carattere mitologico; frontespizio con titolo in rosso e nero e stemma cardinalizio; 16 pagine non numerate; 16 pagine non numerate, 1 ritratto dell'Autore inciso all'acquaforte fuori testo - 68 pagine mal numerate XXXX - 738 pagine mal numerate con indicazione finale 728 e compresa 1 carta bianca - 22 carte non numerate di indici) . Testo in lingua italiana. Alcuni capilettera decorati a racemi e abitati, nonché fregi tipografici a silografia. L'opera, in edizione originale, definita assai rara dal Lozzi, è una vasta e pregevole storia della città di Faenza. Tonduzzi, sacerdote faentino, giunse con la sua narrazione fino al 1440 circa, e lasciò il testo incompiuto. Dopo la sua morte, Pietro Maria Cavina (come indica Lozzi citando le proprie fonti) continuò il libro fino a trattare dell'anno 1600 e curò la pubblicazione (benché tale merito vada nel frontespizio a Girolamo Minacci). Cavina è, inoltre, l'autore della vita di Tonduzzi premessa alle Historie, e compresa nelle pagine con numerazione romana. Esemplare dalla legatura in perfette condizioni, completo sia dell'antiporta figurata che del ritratto spesso mancanti, molto raro a trovarsi in queste buone condizioni; qualche macchiolina al frontespizio; lieve, ampia gora da pagina I a pagina VIII; alcune pagine con uniformi, lievi, ossidazioni della carta, più marcata a poche di esse.

A scarce title with an appealing association. * Third and final edition of a well-respected vade mecum first published in 1662. "[This] is a book on the same lines as those written in the preceding period by Fullbecke and Dodderidge. It tells the student something of the kinds of knowledge essential to him...It gives him a little elementary information as to the various kinds and species of laws...and then it goes on to discourse the main features of the common law and its position in the state. It concludes bygiving a list of the chief books on English law which he must study" (Holdsworth). Sir Frederick Pollock [1845-1937] was one of the greatest British judges and legal scholars of his day. His treatises on contracts, jurisprudence, the common law and other subjects did much to clarify and systematize English law. Several of these were standard texts that went through several editions. He is also remembered for his collaboration with F.W. Maitland on The History of English Law Before the Time of Edward I and his correspondence with Oliver Wendell Holmes, which was published posthumously as The Holmes-Pollock Letters.

With an extensivevocabulary index to rear containing a list of all the works recorded in the the Eclogues, the Georgics, and the epic Aeneid. Publius Vergilius Maro (70 BC- 19 BC), usually called Virgil or Vergil, was an ancient Roman poet of the Augustan period. He is known for three major works of Latin literature, the Eclogues(or Bucolics), the Georgics, and the epic Aeneid. A number of minor poems, collected in the Appendix Vergiliana, are sometimes attributed to him. Virgil is traditionally ranked as one of Rome's greatest poets. His Aeneid has been considered the national epic of ancient Rome from the time of its composition to the present day. Modelled after Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, the Aeneid follows the Trojan refugee Aeneas as he struggles to fulfil his destiny and arrive on the shores of Italy - in Roman mythology the founding act of Rome. Virgil's work has had wide and deep influence on Western literature, most notably the Divine Comedy of Dante, in which Virgil appears as Dante's guide through hell and purgatory.

        Carta Genererale dell' África.

      Double-page hand colored engraved map, 350 x 445 mm (18" x 14", decorative cartouche. Coloring likely done at a later date, but attractively applied, wide margins, very minor aging; a bright and clear impression. Guillaume Delisle (1675-1726) was a French cartographer who was considered one of the best of his age. He has even been referred to as the father of modern geography, and was appointed Premier Geographer to Louis XV in 1718. According to Tooley and Bricker his 1700 map of Africa added a level of accuracy that would hold value for decades to come. This map of Africa is map number 84 in Norwich's Maps of Africa. The coloring was probably done at a later date, but there is an attractive cartouche with several figures, including a man spearing a crocodile. The map is from an Italian edition of Delisle?s Atlante Novissimo. Tooley & Bricker: Landmarks of Mapmaking. Norwich # 84.

        DIVI BRITANNICI: being A Remark Upon the Lives of all the Kings Of this Isle, From the Year of the World 2855. Unto the Year of Grace 1660

      St Paul's Churchyard, London : Thos Roycroft [printer], Francis Eglesfield [seller], 1675 A fair copy of Sir Winston Churchill's famous, and rare, work on the history of the Kings of England - starting from the pre-Roman period. Churchill (1620-1688) was a devoted Royalist and was wounded serving as Captain of Horse in the Civil War. He became a Member of Parliament and was knighted by Charles II in 1664, becoming a Fellow of the Royal Society in the same year. According to one source his position in the royal household meant that Divi Britannicae could be published without censorship - but it had to be amended before publication because a section over- justifying taxation would have enraged Parliament.This copy is in full leather having been repaired at least twice - the first time to place a Russia binding over the original leather; and the second to conserve the book by rebacking and replacing the spine. Remnants of the first binding survive. The Russia binding has elaborate blind tooling and both boards survive with minimal damage. The new spine matches the boards and has blind tooling, raised bands and a gilt title label. There is a book label of Chas Ino Shoppee on the front pastedown. The title page in red and black inks with an allegorical design has been tissue repaired and has a small hole. There is a 4 page dedication to Charles II and 362 pages of text with numerous copper plate text illustrations, plus a 2 page index. There is some staining affecting the margins and some text, mainly at the very top of the pages and also the bottom third. All the text and illustrations are legible and clear. Some early pages and the index page (which has been tissue repaired) have nibbled edges.

      Peter Kolbe (1675-1726) was sent to South Africa with a mission to provide information about the country and to do astronomical and surveying research. This set features two folio volumes, with text in Dutch, and is the first Dutch Edition.  Volume 1 - 529 pp.  Volume 2 - 449 pp plus extensive index. The books are beautifully bound in stunning 3/4 brown leather with raised spine bands, extensive gilt tooling, leather corners, and gilt rule transitions over marbled paper covered boards.  Top edges gilt.  The contents bear 2 engraved titles, 1 portrait, 6 folding maps, and 46 engraved plates (two folding). In Volume 2 the half-title and engraved title are misbound between pages 24 and 25.  First published in Germany in 1719 as Caput Bonae Spei Hodiernum, the book "professes to be a complete account of the Cape Colony and its inhabitants... His writings were the basis of nearly everything that was published concerning South Africa during the next half century.  To those who can compare them with official records of the time, they are unquestionably of very great value, but others should be careful not to rely too much upon them.  The handsomest edition is the Dutch translation entitled Naaukeurigie... published in Amsterdam in two great volumes in 1727... There is no good translation of Kolbe's work in English that I know of".  (Theal)  The bindings are in fine condition with only the slightest hints of shelf wear at the bottom edges.  The contents are extremely clean with all illustrations and maps intact.  We note no spotting and only light occasional browning.  A gorgeous, beautifully bound, remarkably well-preserved set.

        BY THE KING. A PROCLAMATION FOR PROHIBITING THE IMPORTATION OF COMMODITIES OF EUROPE INTO ANY OF HIS MAJESTIES PLANTATIONS IN AFRICA, ASIA, OR AMERICA, WHICH WERE NOT LADEN IN ENGLAND, AND FOR PUTTING ALL OTHER LAWS RELATING TO THE TRADE OF THE PLANTATIONS, IN EFFECTUAL EXECUTION [caption title]

      London. 1675.. Broadside, 22 x 14 1/2 inches, printed on two sheets. Old fold lines. Repaired with tissue on verso along vertical fold. A few other small tears or tissue repairs. Very good. A rare broadside, announcing the decree of the English government that all foreign goods destined for British colonies must first pass through England, a policy of mercantilism later termed the "triangle trade." "This program permitted the profits from colonial trade and commerce to center in England, promoted British shipping, and enabled the British government to support itself by taxing this trade as it flowed through England" (DAH III:374). The English government began its mercantilist policies under the Commonwealth government, in a series of "navigation acts" which regulated English trade. The first Navigation Act, passed in 1651, targeted Dutch commerce. It stipulated that only English ships could carry freight into English territories, and that if a ship was not English, then it could only carry goods from the country from whence it hailed - i.e., Dutch ships could only import Dutch goods, etc. Further Acts passed in 1660 and 1663, under the Restoration government of Charles II, isolated trade even further, mandating that British colonial goods only be imported to England and forbidding English trade on anything other than English vessels. This policy of trade, which was continued for the next two hundred years, marked the ascent of British colonial mercantilism and planted the seeds of discontent which resulted in the American Revolution one hundred years later. The present proclamation is an enforcement of the Navigation Act of 1663 (An Act for the Encouragement of Trade), under which "no commodities of the growth, production or manufacture of Europe, shall be imported into any land, island, plantation, colony, territory or place to his Majesty belonging". In other words, all European trade to the American and East Indian colonies of the English had to pass through English ports en route. As the law is being disobeyed, to the detriment of trade and tax revenue, the proclamation extends power for enforcement to the officials of the realm. It states: "whereas his Majesty is well informed, that notwithstanding the said Act of Parliament, great quantities of other commodities...have been, and are daily imported into several of his colonies, plantations, and territories, in Asia, Africa and America...and that his Majesties subjects of some of his colonies, and plantations, have not onely [sic] supplied themselves with such commodities not shipped in England...but have conveyed them by land and water, to other of his Majesties colonies and plantations, to the great prejudice of his Majesties customs, and of the trade and navigation of this kingdom." An important proclamation which illustrates the difficulty in maintaining and enforcing the laws central to the first British Empire. ESTC R25339. WING C3378. GOLDSMITHS' 2112. STEELE I:3619.

        Guillaume De L'Isle (1675-1726) L'Amerique Septentrionale

      Guillaume De L'Isle (1675-1726)L'Amerique SeptentrionaleAmsterdam: Pierre Schenk, 1798Hand-colored copperplate engraving31 ½" x 36" framedGuillaume de L’ Isle was the leading French cartographer of the early 18th century. He was known for both his strong belief in the importance of accuracy, as well as his prolific output of over 100 maps during his lifetime. Guillaume de L’Isle was born into a family of French cartographers, and was the pupil of mathematician and astronomer Jean Dominique Cassini. It is said that de L’Isle drew his first map at the age of nine. His first atlas, which he published at the age of 25, made an unprecedented effort to both correct fallacies of earlier maps, such as the depiction of California as an Island, and to add current data to maps. De’Isle was elected to the French Academie Royale des Sciences at the age of 27 and was later appointed to the highest honor as Premier Geographe du Roi (1718). His critical approach to the maps of his predecessors, backed by his training under J. D. Cassini, earned him recognition as the first scientific cartographer and the foremost geographer of his age. De L’Isle was one of the first cartographers to accurately show, in this map of North America originally published in 1700, the peninsular formation of California. Many of de L’Isle’s maps were revised and republished into the 18th century. This later version released in the 1798 by the Amsterdam map publisher Pierre Schenk.

        Historie di Faenza Publicate doppo la di lui morte da Girolamo Minacci nipote, & herede dell'Autore.

      Per Gioseffo Zarafagli,, Faenza, 1675 - Cm. 31,5, Antiporta allegorica, pp. (20) compreso il frontespizio ed il ritratto in ovale dell'Autore, pp. (i)-lii, xxv-xxxv (1) da xxxv-xxxx; 728 con varii errori nella numerazione (le pp. 59-60, bianche) + (44) carte di Indice. Legatura recente in piena pergamena floscia. Segni di tarlo perlopiù marginali alle prime due ed ultime 4 carte, alcune macchiette d?inchiostro ai margini ed uno strappo ricongiunto (senza alcuna perdita) alla c. 35/36. Due delle carte dell?indice risultano inoltre riprese a penna da mano coeva sul medesimo tipo di carta che compone il volume. Collazione conforme a quella dettagliatamente data dal Lozzi ed agli altri esemplari paragonati. Prima edizione, assai rara, della quale è "difficile trovare esemplari non difettosi" (Lozzi). In alcuni esemplari trovasi in fine una carta fuori segnatura con l' "Avvertimento dello stampatore ai Lettori", carta della quale non è fatta menzione in Lozzi cit. Dati i molti errori di paginazione presenti nel libro, è possibile che ad un certo punto ed in un certo numero di esemplari il tipografo abbia sentito il bisogno di aggiungere un foglio con l'Avvertimento.

        Accuratissima Totius Africae Tabula in Lucem Producia Per Tacobum de Sandrart Norimbergae

      Nuremburg: J. von Sandart, 1675. Copper engraving with early colour. Printed on laid paper. Title in manuscript ink on verso of sheet. Cleveland Historical Society collection stamp on verso of sheet. Numerous tears and creases in outside margins, which have been expertly repaired. Center fold has been strengthened. 19 ¼ x 22 ¾ inches. 20 ½ x 24 ½ inches. An early map of Africa by the great mapmaker Jacob von Sandrart, engraved by Homann. Sandrart's stunning map of Africa is a close copy of Fredrik de Wit's map, 'Nova Africa Descriptio' published in 1660. With the prime meridian running through Ferro Island, the map is typical of late seventeenth century maps of Africa. Like other maps of the period, Sandrart has included a highly decorative and informative cartouche in the lower left corner of the sheet. Homann's continental cartouches aspired to convey the natural history as well as the costume and manner of life of the human inhabitants. Here, while a woman peacefully nurses her baby in a hammock, a native chief stares out at the viewer from under the shade of a large umbrella. On the right side of the vignette, two riders on horseback, one with a cutlass and one with a decaptitated head, ride by a river where one man is attacking another with his sword. Among the humans are a lion, a snake, a reptile of some sort and another fox-like animal. Although the map repeats De Wit's decorations, it relies on Ptolemy for its description of the Nile basin. It is to some degree remarkable that seventeenth century maps of the interior of Africa were filled with geographical features and named locations, since there had been very little European exploration of the interior at this date. European trade took place at specific locations along the coast and almost nothing was known about the interior of the dark continent except through rumor. This is a fascinating map by Sandrart and one of only two maps engraved by Homann before 1690. Born at Frankfurt-on-Main, Jacob von Sandrart was one of the most esteemed mapmakers in Nuremberg at the close of the seventeenth century. He learned his trade from his uncle Joachim von Sandrart and from Cornelius Danckerts. As with this impressive map, all of Sandrart's charts are filled with a wealth of decorative details and highly ornate cartouches.

Woodcut initials. An unpressed, full-sized copy, with dark impressions of the plates; occasional marginal dampstaining, a few sheets discolored, a couple of plates with short tears along gutters causing slight loss to signatures or rule borders, marginal worm track in quires G and H touching third plate; binding wrinkled, soiled, and torn along upper board edge, upper inner hinge splitting.

Provenance: Flaminio Bonzagni di Reg[gio Emilia], contemporary ownership inscription at foot of engraved title; Hippolyte Destailleur (1822-1893), bookplate; his 1891 catalogue, no. 297.***& & ONLY EDITION, an enchanting pictorial record of the floats and monuments produced for the ceremonial coronation in 1674 of the “Madonna della Ghiara,” a painting in the eponymous Basilica della Madonna della Ghiara, built in Reggio Emilia at the end of the 16th century to honor the miracles performed by a votive image of the Virgin. The description by Certani, a Lateran Abbot and philosophy professor in Bologna, is illustrated with 15 etchings by Mitelli based on the works of talented local artists, employed by five rival local confraternities who vied to produce the biggest and brightest spectacles for the celebration. Mitelli’s vivacious etchings depict the resulting opulent chariots, triumphal arches, columns, machines, altars, fountains, theatrical machinery, processions, and the Crown of the Virgin. One float was pulled by elephants. The flap on the fourth plate, often lacking, demonstrates the transformation of a “marvelous tower” into “the clearest fountain,” a metamorphosis which left spectators gaping, as described on pp. 69-70 (Torre maravigliosa ... che gli Spettatori guardavano con occhio inarcato ... l'alta, e ben fabricata Torre, questa in un momento sparendo da gli occhi si trasforma in una limpidissima Fonte). & & Vinet noted that the work was omitted by Graesse and Brunet and that “Ces planches sont dignes d’intéresser tous ceux qui veulent connaître jusqu’où, au 17e siècle, pouvait aller la fougue décorative italienne, et ce que la rivalité des confréries arrivait à produire en ce genre...”.& & The overslip and the double-plate sheet have been counted as separate plates by some bibliographers, explaining the varying plate counts.& & Berlin Katalog 3222; Hofer Baroque Book Illus. 74; Lipperheide 2791/ Sl 6 (frontispiece and 16 pl.); Ruggieri 820 (13 pl., not incl. frontis & portrait); Vinet 816 (13 pl.); Bertarelli, Mitelli, pp. 141-146, nos. 641-657; Nagler, Monogrammisten II: 174-175, no. 2 (“schönen und seltenen Werk,” 16 plates incl. title and portrait); Watanabe-O'Kelly 549. &
