Toning, dampspotting to portions of text. Annotations in early hand to margins of a few leaves, interior otherwise fresh. * Second and best edition, "Multis Errobis Purgata." The work by an anonymous author describes the practice of the courts, the forms of writs and an explanation of law terms as they existed during the reign of Edward I. It was John Selden who first called the attention of the public to this ancient treatise, and was instrumental in procuring its publication. While Bracton earns the highest praise as the father of legal learning, Fleta earns a share of it for the illustrations he offered to some of the obscurities found in Bracton. Selden's appended dissertation (pp.453-553) contains many interesting observations about Bracton, Britton, Fleta, and Thornton "and shows what use was made of the Imperial law in England whilst the Romans governed here, at what time it was … [Click Below for Full Description]

Coles, E[lisha]
printed for Peter Parker, at the Leg and Star over against the Royal Exchange in Cornhil, London, 1685. Fourth edition, sm. 8vo, pp. [8] plus unpaginated lexicon in triple column, genuine first and final blanks present; a clean and fairly crisp copy in full contemporary calf, rubbed and worn, a few small chips out on the spine, but sound. Coles (?1640-1680) was the author of a number of "useful and necessary books for the instruction of beginners," among which were his popular A Dictionart English-Latin and Latin-English (London, 1677) which was still in use in schools even after the arrival of Ainsworth's Thesaurus in 1736; and An English Dictionary (London, 1676). "Still in the "hard words" tradition, Coles included thousands of "old words," obsolete ones from Chaucer's day. His dictionary contained twenty-five thousand words, eight thousand more than the last, augmented edition of Phillips. He shortened Phillips' already brief definitions in order to include more words and more etymological information. Coles did break new ground in including cant (thieves' argot) and dialectical terms. These, taken from other specialized dictionaries, had never before been included in a general English dictionary" (Landau, Dictionaries, p. 43). Alston V,66; Wing C-5073.

Testo ornato da grandi capilett., fregi e finali inc. su legno. Dediche al Papa Innocenzo XI e ai Card. Azzolini e Colonna ?Deputati sopra la Navigatione nuova del Tevere?. L?opera è superbamente illustrata da: una grande incisione con figure allegoriche alla dedica e da una serie di 68 incisioni in rame, di notevole qualità per la finezza del disegno e dell?esecuzione. Le figure occupano per lo più lo spazio di metà pagina; 1 è a p. pag. (Colonna Traiana) e 4 a doppia pag. (pianta di Pisa, paludi Pontine, veduta di Piazza del Popolo, veduta di S. Pietro); di particolare interesse sono le figure a soggetto tecnico, come pure la pianta a volo d?uccello di Ancona, il territorio di Fano e di Pisa; magnifiche sono le vedute di Roma (quella di Piazza del Popolo è anche un prezioso documento urbanistico perchè è raffigurata così com?era prima che venisse attuato il progetto del Valadier). Tutto l?affascinante apparato iconografico fu ideato dal Meyer ed in parte dal suo amico e conterraneo B. Denner ed inciso da svariati artisti, quali B. de Ballin, I. Blondeau, Io. Collin, G.B.

FIRST EDITION. Pleasing recent retrospective unlettered dark polished calf, raised bands. Rear flyleaf with seven lines of handwritten notes in red or purple ink. Fulton 166; Heirs of Hippocrates 366; Norman 306; Osler 949; Waller 1391; Wellcome II, 224; Wing B-4013. Frequent faint browning, occasional minor foxing, isolated corner creases, one tiny round wormhole in bottom margin, but still an excellent copy (especially for a cheaply made book like this), the text quite clean and fresh, and the binding unworn. These two treatises represent the efforts of the foremost scientist of the day to inject some theoretical science into what was then the practical art of medicine. The first treatise sets forth six propositions, with accompanying experiments" that describe Boyle's theories about the effects of certain medicines on the body. The second part is a plea for physicians to stop prescribing extremely complicated concoctions (some containing 20 ingredients) to treat their patients. However, Boyle does endorse the medieval belief in the healing powers of gems and stones from the heads of snakes.

Georgio Bullo [George Bull]
Oxonii-Theatro Sheldoniano. Book. A scarce first edition of George Bulls's treatise in defence of the ante-Nicene church fathers. George Bull (16341710) was an English theologian and Bishop of St David's. He was born, 25 March 1634, in the parish of St. Cuthbert, Wells, and educated in the grammar school at Wells, and then at Blundell's School in Tiverton under Samuel Butler. Before he was fourteen years old he went into residence at Exeter College, Oxford, where he became a friend of Thomas Clifford. In 1649, his tutor Baldwin Ackland refused to take the engagement, and together they left the university and settled at North Cadbury in Somerset. He wrote four major theological treatises in Latin, one on justification and three on the Trinity. Bull wrote the Defensio fidei Nicenae in 1680 to defend himself against the charge of Socinianism. Though three publishers refused to publish the work, William Jane, regius professor of divinity at Oxford, convinced Bishop Fell to intervene and have it published in 1685. Despite the delay in publication, it received the endorsement of Jacques-Benigne Bossuet, the Gallican bishop of Meaux, and the acclamation of his English colleagues, making the work the standard defence of Nicene orthodoxy. With bookplate to front pastedown of one Thomas N. Parker, and an attractively engraved title page. Condition: In a calf binding. Externally, rather worn with repairs to leather at corners. Joints cracked. Internally, firmly bound, generally bright and clean but with the occasional spot and mark. Overall: GOOD. Good. [Attributes: First Edition; Har … [Click Below for Full Description]

In the late sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, two competing theories were put forth to account for the source of all of the water in the oceans and rivers of the world. In his Discourse admirables of 1580, the French Huguenot Bernard Palissy maintained that rainfall alone is the sole source of that vast flood, falling on mountains then flowing through cracks in the ground until, diverted by some obstruction, it bubbles to the surface as springs, flowing ultimately into rivers and then oceans. Almost 100 years later, in 1664, following the suggestion of Descartes, the Jesuit philosopher Athanasius Kircherin, in his Mundus subterraneus (“Subterranean World”), posited the idea of a great subterranean sea supplying water to the oceans through the action of tides pumping sea water through hidden channels to points of outlet … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contemporary French speckled calf, raised bands to spine, tooled in gilt, red morocco title label lettered; joints renewed, else fine. Title page with minor mainly marginal toning, scattered leaves present minor toning but overall very good. First French edition of the Relacam Verdadeira ?first published in 1557, which is known in a single copy. A rare book consisting of the anonymous eyewitness? account of De Soto?s expedition to Florida ad the Southern United States. Furthermore, the work includes the dramatic tale of Juan Ortiz, a member of the Narvaez expedition captured by the Indians and rescued by De Soto. The anonymous Portuguese original is a known in a single copy and is found at the NYPL. This is the first translation into French, made by the 17th century French historian Citri de la Guette, to compete with the later Florida del Ynca of Garcilasso de la Vega (published in Lisbon in 1605), considering this less well-known and historically more accurate ?and considering the contemporaneity a consistent argument- relation was due for notoriety. It is the basis and inspiration for the English translation of the following year "A relation of the invasion and conquest of Florida by the Spaniards" (1686).

SHAKESPEARE, WILLIAM
London: Printed for H. Herringman, E. Brewster, and R. Bentley. 4th Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. THE 1685 FOURTH FOLIO OF SHAKESPEARE: A very good, complete, exceptionally tall copy. A Shakespeare folio represents one of the highest points of collecting in the English language. The first folio, published in 1623 (now virtually unobtainable), is the first complete collection of Shakespeare's plays; without it, the English-speaking world would have little or no record of many of the greatest and most influential works in the Western world.  Three seventeeth-century folio editions followed: The Second Folio, 1632; The Third Folio, 1663-64; The Fourth Folio, 1685. The rarity of Shakespeare folios available for private purchase in recent years is well-documented. Harold M. Otness, in his 1990 census of Shakespeare folios, explains: "The number of copies of each edition printed is lost, but speculation puts the press runs at several hundred copies each... American institutions hold at least 561 copies of the four editions combined, which may constitute as many as half of the extant copies worldwide." In the last century there has been a steady transfer of folios from private hands to public libraries and institutions as many try to complete "sets" of the four folios, or recognize the necessity of owning a folio to anchor any collection of English language and literature. The opportunity for a private individual to own a folio is becoming increasingly scarce.  THIS COPY OF THE FOURTH FOLIO IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION: The Shakespeare folios are notoriously poorly-printed and, … [Click Below for Full Description]
