        D'Amboinsche rariteitkamer, behelzende eene beschryvinge van allerhande zoo weeke als harde Schaalvisschen, te weeten raare krabben, kreeften, en diergelijke zeedieren, als mede allerhande hoorntjes en schulpen, die men in d'Amboinsche zee vindt: Daar beneven zommige mineraalen, gesteenten, en soorten van aarde, die in d'Amboinsche, en zommige omleggende eilanden gevonden worden.

      Amsterdam, François Halma, 1705. Folio (38.6 x 24.5 cm). Half title, engraved frontispiece (by Jan Gouwe & Jacobus de Later), title page in two colours with vignette with view on Ambon, [2] (dedication pages by the publisher), [4] foreword (by F. Halma, 1704), [10] (list of chapters), portrait of Rumphius (by Jacobus de Later); 340 pp., (with beautiful engraved text vignettes, and including two half titles), [43 pp.] (index and errata), with 60 engraved plates after Maria Sybilla Merian. Contemporary full speckled calf. Spine with seven raised bands. Compartments rich gilt with floral patterns, red morocco label with gilt title. Marbled endpapers. Edges speckled red.= A beautiful, contemporarily-bound copy of the first edition. Georg Eberhard Rumphius (1628-1702) worked for the Dutch East-India Company and was stationed on the island of Ambon for most of his life. He devoted much time to research on the flora and fauna of the island. Despite disasters in his private life and the loss of his library and manuscripts in a fire, he managed to compile this great work on the natural history of tropical marine animals, with a special focus on shells. Rumphius did not live to see the published version of his book. It was published from the manuscripts he sent back to Holland in various shipments. Since most of Rumphius' drawings never arrived, the publishers commissioned Maria Sybilla Merian to draw the illustrations for the "Amboinsche Rariteitkamer". Merian had just returned from Surinam and was in financial need while she worked on her masterpiece about its insects. Needless to say, apart from being a very original work of natural history, this title also stands out for the 60 very fine plates. "D'Amboinsche Rariteitkamer stands apart from those other eighteenth-century publications which may be considered among the gems of conchological literature, for it is based upon the work of a near-genius who, like Aristotle, observed the fascinating creatures living in the waters around a small island and made a valuable contribution to the literature of biology in general and of conchology in particular" (Peter Dance, "Delights for the eyes and the mind. A brief survey of conchological books"). This copy contains the often-missing portrait. Provenance: the small armorial bookplate of G. N. P. Hasselaer mounted on the front pastedown. Gerard Nicolaes Pieter Hasselaer (1755-1812) was the last of the elder branch of a famous Haarlem family. Plates clean, with very nice and strong impressions and wide margins. A few small, skilful repairs to the near-perfectly preserved original binding. Very rare in this fine state. Landwehr 591; Nissen ZBI, 3518; Ruinen, pp. 8-9; Ward & Carozzi, 1937 (1741 ed.).

        Carte nouvelle du territoire de Verone...à l'usage des Armées en Italie...

      1705. Pieter (Pierre) Mortier (1661 - 1711) ed il fratello David, editori di origine francese trasferitesi ad Amsterdam, raccolsero materiale cartografico di tutte le principali botteghe del diciassettesimo secolo, ripubblicando a proprie spese, a scopo commerciale, molte delle opere della famiglia Sanson, Blaeu e di altri editori che li avevano preceduti. Alla morte di Pierre, la tipografia fu proseguita dal figlio Cornelis (1699 - 1783), che sposando la sorella di un altro importante editore, Johannes Covens (1697 - 1774), fondò la tipografia Covens e Mortier, che divenne presto la più importante firma nell'editoria cartografica in Olanda e quindi in Europa. Sotto la loro firma uscirono, postume, le pubblicazioni dei più importanti cartografi del secolo precedente, quali Sanson, Jaillot, De l'Isle, Visscher, De Wit ed altri. Il seguente corpus di mappe è tratto da uno dei loro tanti e diversi atlanti "compositi", ovvero contenenti carte di differenti cartografi. Per la prima volta incluse nella ristampa del Theatrum di Johannes Blaeu, edita nel 1704 da Pierre Mortier, sono tratte dal Atlas Nouveau pubblicato circa nel 1708 e successivamente ristampato. Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva dei contorni, margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Amsterdam Amsterdam Tooley p. 450, Cremonini scheda 54, 48. 570 500

Schweinslederbände der Zeit auf 7 Bünden mit doppelten goldgepr. Rückenschildchen in orange und grün. Dreiseitiger gesprenkelter Rotschnitt. Folio (290:422 mm). Seltene Pariser Werkausgabe des bedeutenden Papstes, dessen Kirchenpolitik die Christianisierung der Angelsachsen begründete und die Bindung des Frankenreiches an den Papst festigte. Der Heilige und Kirchenvater Gregorius Magnus ist der jüngste der vier großen lateinischen Kirchenlehrer der Spätantike. "Den Erfolg und die Beliebtheit seiner Werke im Mittelalter und deren Einfluss auf die Volksfrömmigkeit hat [Gregors einfacher, 'demütiger'] Stil wesentlich mitbegünstigt: seine exegetischen Schriften gehören zu den am häufigsten exzerpierten, seine Dialogi zu den meistgelesen Werken im Mittelalter". - Hübsch ausgestattete Ausgabe, besorgt von den Mauristen, inbesondere Denis de Sainte-Marthe, der hernach die "Gallia Christiana" edierte. Von Brunet hervorgehoben: "Avant cette édition il en avait été publié plusieurs autres [...], mais elles ont peu de valeur" (ebd.). - Vortitel etwas eingerissen; im w. Rand teils braunfleckig.

        Bellvno ou bellune, Capitale du Bellunois

      1705. Esemplare tratto dal primo volume del "Nouveau Theatre de l'Italie" pubblicato ad Amsterdam nel 1704/5 e nel 1724, quale integrazione al progetto di Johannes Baleu, iniziato nel 1663, del grande "libro delle città", manchevole delle piante di gran parte della parte settentrionale della penisola. Il Blaeu, durante la sua lunga attività editoriale pubblica tre volumi sulle città italiane. Nel 1663 i primi tre, suddivisi in Stato della Chiesa, Roma e Regno di Napoli e Sicilia. Alla sua morte i suoi eredi danno alla luce altri due volumi datati 1682 incentrati sulle città del Piemonte e della Savoia, poi ristampati da altri editori nel 1693 e 1697. Il francese Pierre Mortier pubblica una ristampa nel 1704/5, intitolata "Nouveau Theatre de l'Italie". L'opera è in quattro volumi e comprende le lastre del Blaeu, ritoccate e modificate in piccola parte, integrate dall'aggiunta di numerose nuove mappe di proprio disegno, raffiguranti le città della parte settentrionale della penisola, racchiuse nel primo volume dell'opera. L'atlante del Mortier venne pubblicato con testo latino, francese ed olandese. La particolarità che differenzia le due edizioni di Blaeu e Mortier è rappresentata dal fatto che il testo non è al verso della singola mappa (che quindi è bianca nel retro), ma si trova all'inizio di ogni singolo volume. Il grande successo dell'opera diede origine ad un'ulteriore ristampa, praticamente identica, curata da R. Alberts ed edita nel 1724/5. Incisione in rame, in buono stato di conservazione.

        FUNDACION DE MAIORASGO LOS SENORES DON LUIS DE SANTA CRUZ Y PADILLA CONDE DE SAN JUAN & LURIGANCHO Y EL GENL. SR. JOSEPH DE SANTA CRUZ Y GALLARDO SUHISO SOBRE EL OFICIO DE THESORERO DE LA CASA DE LA MONEDA Y UNA CHACARA Y TIERRA EN EL VALLE DE LURIGANCHO Y EL TITULO DE CASTILLA DE DHO. CONDADO [manuscript title]

      [Lima], 1705. [31] leaves. [bound with:] [OFFICIAL MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENT, DATED 1782 - 1783]. [34] leaves. Folio. Contemporary limp vellum with remnants of pigskin ties, lettered on cover. Very minor soiling; some small ink-related paper loss. Near fine. This document comprises the petition of Luis de Santa Cruz y Padilla, general of the Royal Armies in Peru and Chile, and his wife, Julia Fernández Gallardo, for recognition of the establishment of an entailed estate in primogeniture of their farm and lands in the Valley of Lurigancho, for the confirmation of their title in Castile, and of their son as perpetual treasurer of the Royal Mint of Lima as granted by Royal Order of November 12, 1703. This is followed by a copy of the Royal Provision of appointment and entailment as perpetual treasurer and inspector, confirmation of entailed estate of lands in Lurigancho, and of the title, reciting in detail the various privileges and duties of the treasurer and inspector, given in Madrid, November 12, 1703, with confirmation by the Royal Accountants in Madrid, November 14, 1703. This is continued with the confirmation accompanied by a recital of genealogy, discussion of Santa Cruz lineages, and reiteration of the terms of the Royal Provision dated and subscribed by notary in Lima, August 3, 1705, and attested to by witnesses and subscribed by a notary in Lima, March 17, 1735. The second section is lengthy testimony in Lima on July 10, 1782 by María Narcisa de Santa Cruz y Centeno, marquise and widow of Moscoso, and Mariana de Santa Cruz y Centeno, marquise and widow of Otero, reciting lineage in support of claims in litigation with other claimants to succession in the entailed estate, prior testimony and claims of numerous heirs to inheritance, orders of monetary distributions, termination of the post of treasurer due to incapacity of the current heir and renunciation by female descendants, and agreement of the heirs to terminate the entailed estate, dated February 16, 1782. Lurigancho is an agricultural region some twenty-five miles to the east of Lima on the right bank of the Río Rimac. The area was isolated until a road was built to it through mountainous terrain during the viceroyalty of Manuel de Aman y Junient (1761-76). José de Santa Cruz y Gallardo (1661-1743), second Count of San Juan de Lurigancho, was lieutenant governor and tax collector of the province of Yamparaes, tax collector of Mizque and Pocona, and chief magistrate of the mines of the Royal District of Charcas. He traveled to Madrid and was received into the Order of Santiago, appointed Captain General of Chile, and granted the title of Count of San Juan de Lurigancho for his father in 1694-95. He returned to Lima in 1695, but his privileges were suspended by Royal Order in 1697, and he returned to Spain to reclaim them. On December 10, 1702 he was named perpetual treasurer of the Royal Mint in Lima, established in 1565 by viceroy Lope García de Castro, a post inherited by his heirs following his death, and he returned to Lima in 1703. His son, Diego Santa Cruz y Centeno (1707-74), became assistant treasurer of the mint, and in 1743 he inherited the post of treasurer from his father. In 1754 he was excommunicated, but this was lifted to permit his continuing in his post. Entailed estates, designed to maintain real property intact over generations and usually involving primogeniture, deprived other heirs of opportunity to inherit. Initially, this situation was resolved by entry into religious or bureaucratic life, but with the passage of time and subsequent increase of the number of heirs, these solutions became impossible. As more heirs of the holder of the entailed estate went from wealth to poverty on his death, the practice was abolished, and remaining estates such as this one were dissolved by mutual agreement of the family.

        [THE PSALMS HYMNS, AND SPIRITUAL SONGS, OF THE OLD & NEW- TESTAMENT: FAITHFULLY TRANSLATED INTO ENGLISH MEETER. FOR THE USE, EDIFICATION AND COMFORT OF THE SAINTS IN PUBLICK AND PRIVATE, ESPECIALLY IN NEW-ENGLAND]

      [Boston: Printed by B. Green, for Benjamin Eliot, and Nicholas Boone, 1705. 3-505,[7]pp. Titlepage in expert facsimile. 16mo. Contemporary paneled calf with later metal clasp. Small chips to boards, edge wear and rubbing. Contemporary ink inscriptions on endpapers, small paper bookplate and withdrawal stamp on the front pastedown from the Fitchburg Historical Society. Marginal chipping, some tears, a few leaves with minor loss. In unsophisticated original condition, very good. In a half morocco box. The extraordinarily rare twelfth edition of the Bay Psalm Book, one of the most famous of all American books. The first edition of the Bay Psalm Book, printed in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1640, is the first book printed in what is now the United States, and an impossible rarity, with only eleven surviving copies. Besides its fame as an imprint, the Bay Psalm Book is a unique expression of the theological tenets which founded New England and American Protestantism. Its translation and longevity as a text lie at the heart of the American religious experience. At the time of the founding of the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1630, the standard English hymn book, translated by Thomas Sternhold and John Hopkins, had gone through almost two hundred editions. In the meantime, in 1612, the Separatist Puritans had published, in exile in Holland, their own, stricter translation of the Psalms from the original Hebrew. This was used in the Puritan settlement at Plymouth. The Congregational ministers who controlled the Bay Colony felt there were many errors in the Sternhold-Hopkins version, but wished to disassociate themselves from the radicals at Plymouth. They determined to make a new translation from the original Hebrew, a task accomplished in 1639. The new translation was the work of many hands, although the primary translators were Richard Mather, father of Increase and grandfather of Cotton; John Eliot, later famous as the Apostle to the Indians and creator of the Eliot Indian Bible, and Thomas Welde, author of important tracts on early New England. For more than a century, this translation, quickly and almost universally referred to as the Bay Psalm Book, became the primary hymn book of New England, passing through more than fifty editions in Massachusetts and in England, where it was adopted by many Non-Conformist congregations. Psalm books and hymn books were literally read to pieces. Despite the rather high survival rate of the first edition, only seven perfect and four imperfect copies survive of the next eleven American editions. There are no surviving copies of some editions, only imperfect survivors of others, issued between 1651 and 1705. Below are the editions and the known copies, which are concentrated in the holdings of the Massachusetts Historical Society, where they were vigorously collected during the 19th century, and the former William G. Mather collection, mostly collected 1910-1930, and given to the University of Virginia during World War II as a gift of philanthropist Tracy G. McGregor. The only exceptions are the two copies of the third edition, at New York Public and John Carter Brown, the copy of the ninth at the British Library, and the present copy. After the first edition, these are the known copies of the next eleven editions: 2nd edition, 1648? No known copy. 3rd edition, Cambridge, Samuel Green, 1651. Two complete copies, New York Public Library (NN) and John Carter Brown Library (RPJCB). 4th-6th editions. No known copies, although there is a reference to a Cambridge, 1668 edition. There were editions published in England for Boston booksellers during this period which may account for these designations. 7th edition, Boston, Benjamin Harris, 1693. One complete copy in a private collection. 8th edition, Boston, Samuel Phillips, 1695. One complete copy at Massachusetts Historical Society (MHi). 9th edition, Boston, B. Green, 1698. Two complete copies, at MHi and the British Library, one imperfect at the University of Virginia (ViU). This is the first edition to contain music. 10th edition, Boston, B. Green, 1702. Two complete copies, ViU and Harvard, one imperfect at ViU. This edition has several variant titlepages. 11th edition. No known copy. 12th edition, Boston, B. Green, 1705. One imperfect copy at the ViU (lacking fifty-eight leaves and described by its own institution as a "mutilated copy"), and the present copy (lacking only the titlepage and minor portions of a few leaves). Virtually no new copies of early editions of the Bay Psalm Book have appeared since the collecting efforts of William G. Mather, which ended around 1930. Since then, this is the only copy of any of the first twelve editions to come to the market. An extraordinary rare opportunity to acquire the earliest obtainable American edition of the Bay Psalm Book. BRISTOL B270. SHIPTON & MOONEY 39420. ESTC W4786. HOLMES, MINOR MATHERS 53-G.

Royal folio (48 x 33 cm). With hand-coloured engraved frontispiece and 2 sets of the 24 engraved plates. Each of the 24 plates is present twice: beautifully hand-coloured with the figures still unnumbered, and in black and white with the figures numbered (and key letters added) but with Rösel's name erased. Contemporary half calf, gold-tooled spine.

      Nissen ZBI 3464; DSB XI, pp. 502-503; Junk, Rara, pp. 162-163. First and only edition, in Latin and German, of a beautiful work on frogs and toads, important from both an artistic and scientific point of view. August Johann Rösel (1705-1759), the author and artist, was the only natural historian of his time who studied both entomology and amphibians and reptiles, an essential combination in today's study of ecosystems.The text is printed in 2 columns, Latin on the left and German on the right, describing the natural history of all German frogs and toads in great detail. While the text proved valuable, the book's greatest fame lies in its plates. They are well designed from a practical point of view, highly artistic and skilfully executed, providing detailed and accurate information, and are beautifully and naturally coloured by hand. The 24 plates are present twice as intended by the publisher. One suite, in the earlier state without figure numbers or key letters, is beautifully coloured by hand, while the other, in the later state with figure numbers and key letters added, but with Rösel's name erased, is in black & white.In fine condition and virtually untrimmed, with only the half-title slightly spotted and occasionally very minor foxing or spots in the text. The binding is worn and scuffed but remains structurally sound. A beautiful copy of a beautiful book: a classic of natural history illustration in colour and an important contribution to the study of frogs and toads.

        Esatta relazione del dolorosissimo funerale . . . del . . . Imperatore dè Romani Leopoldo primo il Grande

      1705. Esatta relazione del dolorosissimo funerale della felice memoria dell'augustissimo, potentissimo, et invittissimo imperatore de' Romani Leopoldo primo il grande. Incisione raffigurante la processione funebre per i funerali di Leopolo I 1640 - 1705), che fu imperatore del Sacro Romano Impero (1658 - 1705), re di Boemia (1656 - 1705) e d'Ungheria (1655 - 1705). Acquaforte, con l'indirizzo dello stampatore Luigi Neri in basso a destra. Unito un pamphlet commemorativo della cerimonia funebre. Secondo Mark Hengerer, The Funerals of the Habsburg Emperors in the Eighteenth Century: "Nel 1705, appena un'ora dopo la morte di Lepoldo I, il Lord grande intendente e il Ciambellano discutevano dell'allestimento della camera ardente, dell'imbalsamazione e vestizione della salma... dell'allestimento della Camera del Cavaliere ... con altari e panni neri, le guardie, e la musica. Tutti gli altri aspetti sarebbero stati discussi in una riunione del consiglio con altri funzionari di corte, il giorno successivo...". Leggeri difetti restaurati, nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Rarissima. Esatta relazione del dolorosissimo funerale della felice memoria dell'augustissimo, potentissimo, et invittissimo imperatore de' Romani Leopoldo primo il grande [Exact Relationship of the Most Painful Funeral, of the Happy Memory, of the Most Sacred, Most Powerful, and Most Invincible Roman Emperor Leopold I] (Rome, 1705). Stitched together with a similarly titled broadside containing an engraving "Si Stampa da Luigi Neri in piazza Nauona" [From the press of Luigi Neri in piazza Nauona]. This small broadside commemorate the funeral ceremony for Leopold I (1640 - 1705), Holy Roman Emperor (1658 - 1705), King of Bohemia (1656 - 1705) and of Hungary (1655 - 1705). According to Mark Hengerer's The Funerals of the Habsburg Emperors in the Eighteenth Century, "In 1705, only an hour after the death of Leopold I (1658 - 1705), the High Steward ... and the Lord Chamberlain ... discussed the preparations for the lying - in - state, the post mortem, the embalming and robing of the corpse, provision for a first coffin and receptacles für the heart and for the coffin, the fitting of the Knight's Chamber ... with altars and black cloths, the guards, and the music. The rest of the arrangements were discussed at a council meeting with other court officials on the next day. At this meeting, the ceremonial records of r657 (concerning the death of Ferdinand IV) were read, and thus became, with only a few variations, the guidelines for the funeral of Leopold I. A nice compliment to the volume: Castrum doloris quod immortali gloriae, et sacratissimis manibus Leopoldi Magni: augustissimi Romanorum imperatoris, Hungariae et Bohemiae regis, archiducis Austriae, &c. &c.

        A MID-NIGHT CRY FROM THE TEMPLE OF GOD TO THE TEN VIRGINS SLUMBERING AND SLEEPING, AWAKE, AWAKE, ARISE, AND GIRD YOUR LOYNS, AND TRIM YOUR LAMPS, FOR BEHOLD THE BRIDEGROOM COMETH, GO YE THEREFORE OUT TO MEET HIM

      [New York: Printed by William Bradford, 1705. [2],179,[9],88[of 90?]pp. First eight leaves and final two leaves in facsimile. 19th-century half morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Spine abraded and worn, removing title; corners worn. Contents darkened at edges, first few leaves lightly dampstained; some light soiling and foxing. Good. First edition, with the addition of "An Epistle to the Churches of Christ, called Quakers." Rogers, who lived mainly in New London, was a convert to the Baptist faith. He later developed his own particular ideas and followers, called Rogerines. For this he was vigorously persecuted, and he gives a long account of his tribulations in this work, including floggings, imprisonment, and fines. All of the works relating to the Rogerines are quite rare, having been issued in small editions, and often destroyed. ESTC locates fewer than ten copies of this work, almost all in various states of incompleteness. Shipton & Mooney notes that all known copies of the text seem to be lacking the last leaf (pp.89-90), as though the leaf was canceled before binding. EVANS 1232, 1233. ESTC W26021. SABIN 72687.

        Description de la Livonie, avec une relation de l'origine, du progrès, & de la decadence de l'ordre teutonique, des révolutions qui sont arrivées dans ce pays jusqu'à notre temps, avec les guerres que les Polonais, les Suédois et les Moscovites ont eues ensemble pour cette province. On y décrit les duchez de courlande et de Semigalle et la province de Pilten. Enfin on y trouve le voyage de l'auteur de Livonie en Hollande l'an 1698.

Basane brune de l'époque, dos à nerfs, roulettes dorées sur les coupes, titre de maroquin rouge. Intéressant traité constitué d'une suite de lettres adressées à un commanditaire anglais. L'auteur souhaite faire découvrir au public ce petit pays aujourd'hui sous souveraineté russe après des siècles de batailles entre ses voisins. Ainsi débute son ouvrage : "Je me persuade que dans ce siècle ou l'on aime tant les nouvelles découvertes, il se trouvera des curieux, qui seront bien aise d'être informez des faits et coutumes de ces peuples de l'Europe, dont l'histoire moderne ne dit que fort peu de chose". Après une description géographique du pays et de ses habitants, il étend son travail aux Etats voisins si souvent impliqués dans la vie de la province et s'attarde sur quelques personnalités marquantes. Les lettres IV et V sont consacrées à un historique de l'Ordre Teutonique. Edition originale en français traduite de l'anglais. Dans sa dédicace, l'éditeur Van Poolsum exprime la nécessité de cette traduction: « Tout le monde n'entends pas la langue dans laquelle cet ouvrage a été composé, c'est ce qui ma fait naître la pensée de le faire traduire en françois, langue que l'on peut regarder aujourd'hui comme la langue de commerce entre les divers peuples de notre Europe » ! Ouvrage peu commun. 1 vol. 12mo. 1 engraved frontispiece (portrait of Frédéric Guillaume), 1 folding map. Contemporary sheep.

Med.) and four European copies cited in OCLC. Pacchioni’s work contains his classic description and illustration of the Pacchionian bodies of the arachnoid tissue under the dura, which allow cerebrospinal fluid to exit the sub-arachnoid space and enter the blood stream. “The arachnoid granulations of villi had been seen by Vesalius and others, but the first adequate account of them was made by Antonio Pacchioni of Rome; his name is today associated with the very large villi which are few in number and present only in the adult. In his monograph (Dissertatio epistolae . . . [1705]) he claimed that the villi were lymph-producing glands” (Clarke and O’Malley, The Human Brain and Spinal Cord, p. 740). There are two issues of this work, one with the title reading as above and the other with title reading Dissertatio epistolaris ad Lucam Schroeckium de glandulis conglobatis durae meningis humanae. Both are very rare. Brunori et al., “Antonio Pacchioni (1665-1726): Early studies of the dura mater,” in Journal of Neurosurgery 78 (1993): 515-518. Dictionary of Scientific Biography.

His Annals of Ireland from the first Conquest by the English, a great part of which is now first Published, together with a Chronological Account of the most memorable Events continued from the Reign of Queen Elizabeth to this present tim

      Printed for Awnsham and John Churchill in Pater-Noster Row, and Jonathan Robinson at the Golden Lyon in St Paul's Church-Yard., London 1705 - Folio. 8 x 25 x 12.5 inches. [14] + [4] + 164 + 163-172, [10]; + [4] + 60 + 57-76 + 164 + 64 + 175-196; + [4] + 70 + 44 + 37 + [1] + 37-55 + [1] + 28; + [4] + 23 + 20-42 + [4]; + 59 + [3]. Title page in red and black. Each part has separate title page, pagination and register. Bound in blind stamped panelled calf, spine rebacked, in compartments with raised bands, decorated gilt, with contrasting maroon morocco title label, gilt. Extremities worn and one plate browned; otherwise a a clean crisp interior and a very good copy. Armourial bookplates of Colwich Library (Colwich Hall was in East Staffordshire) and Abel John Ram, Esqr. (several members of the Ram family bore the same names). Illustrated by engraved portrait frontispiece and by five plates, including one map. By Sir James Ware, antiquary and historian (1594-1666). When he was about twenty one years old, Ware began to collect documents relating to Irish history, publishing his first work Archiepiscoporum Casseliensem et Tuamensium vitae in 1628. In 1629, Ware was knighted and he became auditor-general, the first step to a fast developing political career, which saw him joining the staff of the Lord Deputy, Thomas Wentworth, Earl of Strafford. In 1633, Ware made an important contribution to Irish scholarship when he published three important accounts of Ireland by Edmund Campion, Meredith and Spenser entitled The History of Ireland. De scriptoribus Hiberniae followed in 1639, a biographical catalogue of Irish writers, a work of considerable scholarship. The version in English was published in London in 1705, as is shown on the general title page although all the separate title pages within the text have a Dublin imprint of either 1704 or 1705. The work deals with the origins of the Irish people tracing their origins and covers with field monuments, references to classical writers, the development of Irish society and so on. Sir James Ware has been likened to William Camden, for it is due to his scholarly and lifelong dedication in De Hiberniae antiquitatibus ejus disquisitiones, with its accurate details and descriptions, that finally Ireland emerged as a country in its own right. The collation of this book is chaotic. Each part has a separate title page, pagination and register with its own peculiarities. This volume has a portrait of Queen Anne as frontispiece and five plates, including one map, of the usual three plates. The final part, on why Ireland was never entirely subdued is by Sir John Davies (1569-1626) and is certainly ironical in view of the the Catholic rebellion that broke out in 1641.
