         The English usurer; or usury condemned,

      London: printed by John Norton, and are to bee sold by Francis Bowman, in Oxford,, 1634. by the most learned and famous divines of the Church of England, and dedicated to all his Maiesties subiects, for the stay of further increase of the same. Small quarto (172 x 133 mm). Recent full brown calf, gilt and blind rule borders to boards, red morocco spine label. Woodcut before title depicting in one compartment a usurer counting his money, and in the other two pigs rooting, with facing explanation leaf. George Goyder bookplate Woodcut and facing leaf lightly soiled and stained, a few neat repairs to the leaf of verses, trimmed a little close, shaving the rule above the headline on many leaves, some light spotting, still a very good copy. First edition of this useful anthology of contemporary English writing on usury—Downame, Fenton, Mosse, et al.—designed to show that usury is condemned by all "our most Learned and Orthodoxicall divines". "For the critics of the new commercial order, usury epitomized a depersonalized age against which they thrust God's command not to charge interest to the poor, asserting as a final proposition that in a loan the borrower by definition is poorer than the lender. 'The biting worme of usury ... hath corrupted all England,' John Blaxton maintained, evoking in turn the neighborly ideal, the role of Christian charity, and the sin of storing up treasure, in an effort to awaken the conscience of those who deluded themselves that usury was acceptable in the eyes of God. Usury turned charity into an act of self-love, he said" (Appleby). There are poetical contributions by, among others, Joshua Sylvester, Francis Quarles, and George Wither. The woodcut frontispiece is the most attractive feature of the book, depicting a moneylender in gown and ruff seated at his desk, a small devil perched jauntily on his chair back, and in the other panel a couple of pigs rooting in earth and wallowing in mire. It was used as the cover illustration for Norman Jones's book on the usury debate, God and the Moneylenders (1989), and for Joyce Appleby's Economic Thought and Ideology in Seventeenth-Century England (1978). One of three imprint variants of this edition: the others are for booksellers in Dorchester and Wells – Blaxton was rector of Osmington in Dorsetshire.

Exemplaire de première état à la date de 1634 mais expurgé avec les questions XXXIV, XLIV et XLV corrigées. « In 1629, after some earlier approaches, Mersenne wrote to Galileo, offering his services in publishing “the new system of the motion of the earth which you have perfected, but which you cannot publish because of the prohibition of the Inquisition”. Galileo did not reply to this generous offer—nor, indeed, to any of Mersenne’s later letters to him. But Mersenne was not put off. He had come to see in Galileo’s work a supreme illustration of the rationality of nature governed by mechanical laws and, so far as these laws went, of the true program for natural science. In 1633 he published his first critique of Galileo’s Dialogo (1632) in his Traité des mouvemens et de la cheute des corps pesans et de la proportion de leurs différentes vitesses, dans lequel l’on verra plusieurs expériences trés exactes. His first response to hearing of Galileo’s condemnation in that year was to agree with the need for the Church to preserve Scripture from error; yet he came forward at once with a French version (with additions of his own) of Galileo’s unpublished early treatise on mechanics under the title Les méchaniques de Galilée (1634), and with a summary account of the first two days of the Dialogo and of the trial in Les questions théologiques, physiques, morales, et mathématiques (1634). » (DSB) Comme indiqué ci-dessus, il existe deux états de l’édition originale des Questions de Mersenne. Cette censure n’est pas due à une interdiction officielle de la Sorbonne mais à Mersenne lui-même qui pressentit, dès la réception des premières critiques, qu’une si franche présentation des théories héliocentriques de Galilée ne pourrait, en France, qu’être mise rapidement à l’Index. Toutefois, les versions auto-censurées permettent tout de même aux lecteurs de prendre la mesure de l’importance des théories révolutionnaires de Galilée et le nouveau titre du chapitre 45 est un parfait exemple de détournement ironique : « Est-il permis d’enseigner dans les Escoles que la terre est immobile ». Malgré quelques rousseurs et une galerie de vers dans la marge intérieure des pages 191 à 220, mais sans atteinte au texte, bon exemplaire en condition ancienne. Voir Finocchiaro, Retrying Galileo, 1633–1992, 2007, pages 39-40 ; et Lewis, « Playing Safe ? Two Versions of Mersenne’s Questions Théologiques, Physiques, Morales et Mathématiques (1634) » dans The Seventeenth Century, volume 22, 2007, pages 76-96 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

         DS - Bedeutende Quellen zum Dreißigjährigen Krieg. Die berühmten Pilsener Reverse - sowie ein weiteres zugehöriges Dokument in den Original-Handschriften aus dem Gräflich Schaffgottschen Archiv.

      3 Manuskripte, zusammen 15 1/4 Seiten folio. Hs I Pilsen, 12.I.1634, 5 Seiten folio, mit den Unterschriften von 49 wallensteinischen Offizieren und papiergedecktem Siegel des Feldmarschalls Christian von Ilow über roter Seidenschnur. 3 beidseitig beschriebene Blätter, ein viertes Blatt leer, ebenso der Umschlag.(1r Text 1v Text 2r Text 2v Text und Unterschriften 3r Unterschriften und Siegel 3v Stempel "Reichsgräfl. Schaffgottsche Majoratsbibliothek zu Warmbrunn" und "Standesherrl. Cameralamt zu Hermsdorf" sowie Signatur 4r+v vacat.)Der erste "Pilsener Revers" oder "Pilsener Schluss" mit dem persönlichen Treueeid der einberufenen Offiziere auf ihren Generalissimus Wallenstein, der zuvor mit seinem Abschied gedroht hatte. Zu den Unterzeichnern zählen auch Ottavio Piccolomini, der zu diesem Zeitpunkt schon Wallensteins Absetzung betrieb, und mit Butler und Gordon zwei der späteren Mörder Wallensteins (nicht erschienen waren die ebenfalls geladenen Heerführer Gallas, Aldringen und Colloredo).Das bedingungslose Treuegelöbnis für Wallenstein wird in Wien als letzter Beweis für dessen Verrat am Kaiser angesehen, am 24. Januar wird der Generalissimus per Geheimpatent ab- und Gallas als Höchstkommandierender eingesetzt.Unter dem Eindruck der Bedrohung, wenn auch ohne Kenntnis des am Vortag ergangenen verschärften Absetzungsbefehls des Kaisers haben zu können, erklärt Wallenstein am 19. Februar seine Treue gegenüber dem Kaiser und verwahrt sich gegen die Deutung, der Revers vom 12. Januar sei gegen den Kaiser gerichtet. Ein nicht unterzeichnetes Protokoll hält die Reaktionen von 33 Offizieren auf Wallensteins Erklärung fest:Hs II Pilsen, 19.II.1634, 6 ? Seiten folio. 4 beidseitig beschriebene Blätter, von alter Hand am Kopf foliiert 33-35. (1r-4r beschrieben, 4v vacat.)Protokoll der "Vota" von 33 bei Ilow zusammengekommenen Offiziere, mit denen sie Wallensteins Treueerklärung gegenüber Kaiser und Reich annehmen und unterstützen.Am Tag nach diesen informellen Erklärungen wird ein offizielles, für Wien bestimmtes Dokument aufgesetzt. Das Verhängnis soll aufgehalten werden, indem der "mißverstandene" Revers vom 12. Januar ins rechte Licht gesetzt wird:Hs III Pilsen, 20.II.1634, 4 Seiten folio, mit den Unterschriften von Wallenstein und 32seiner Offiziere. 3 beidseitig beschriebene Blätter mit Umschlag. Blätter und Umschlag lose.(1r Text 1v Text 2r Text 2v Text und Unterschriften 3r Unterschriften 3v Stempel "Reichsgräfl. Schaffgottsche Majoratsbibliothek zu Warmbrunn" und "Standesherrl. Cameralamt zu Hermsdorf" sowie Signatur.)Der zweite Pilsener Schluß, in dem Wallenstein und die noch bei ihm verbliebenen Offiziere ihre Treue zu Kaiser und katholischer Religion erklären.Zwei Tage später bricht Wallenstein nach Eger auf, am 25. Februar wird er dort in seinem Schlafzimmer ermordet unmittelbar vor ihm waren seine engsten Getreuen Ilow, Kinsky und Adam Trcka umgebracht worden. Sechs der Unterzeichner vom 12. Januar wurden wegen ihres Verrats an Kaiser und Reich unter Anklage gestellt. Die Anklage gegen Herzog Heinrich Julius von Sachsen-Lauenburg wird fallengelassen Haimerl, Losy, Sparr und Scherffenberg werden zum Tode verurteilt und bald begnadigt nur das Todesurteil gegen Graf Schaffgotsch, aus dessen Archiv die vorliegenden Dokumente stammen, wird im Juli 1635 vollstreckt.Angesichts der Wirrnisse, denen die Handschriften in fast 4 Jahrhunderten ausgesetzt waren, ist ihr Zustand noch bemerkenswert gut. Ränder und Falten - insbesondere die Bugfalten - weisen Einrisse und kleine Abbrechungen auf, Hs I darüber hinaus ein kleines Rostloch in Bl 1.Ausführliche Beschreibung auf Wunsch!

         Marcus Aurelius Antoninus the Roman emperor, his meditations concerning himselfe: treating of a naturall mans happinesse; wherein it consisteth, and of the meanes to attaine unto it

      M. Flesher for Richard Mynne, London 1634 - Translated out of the original Greek; with notes: by Meric Casaubon, Marcus Aurelius' extremely influential expression of Stoic philosophy.Small quarto (leaves measure 182 x 133 mm) collating: [14], 27, [1], 210, 46 pp, with the engraved plate in the "Notes" section. Lacks preliminary blank (as usual). Bound in early to mid-twentieth century full calf to style with raised bands, gilt title on the spine and a double blind rule. Page edges stained red. A proper rebind in excellent condition. Internal contents generally in Very Good condition with some underlining and marginal notes on approximately 50 pages (appearing in an early or contemporary hand).Confusingly, the two copies that appear at auction discuss a portrait. The first record, Sothebys 1980, has the portrait (by Faithorne) although the inner margin of the leaf is repaired/extended. Then Bonhams, 2008 says their copy is lacking the portrait, undoubtedly basing that assertion on the Sothebys record. However, the copy at the Huntington which we have examined, as well as EEBO and the records we can find on worldcat do not have or indicate a frontis portrait. Further, the National Portrait Gallery dates the Faithorne portrait of Marcus Aurelius as from 1650 - 1670, well after the publication date of this book. As a result, it is our belief that the Sothebys copy had an inserted portrait that was not published with the book. Beside the two copies at auction we could find just two copies offered by the trade, both at Bauman, 2010 and 2012 for $10,500 and $16,000 respectively. Neither of those copies had a portrait and both were lacking the engraved plate, that is present in our copy."No one would now dare write a book like Marcus Aurelius' To Himself, or, as we call it in English, The Meditations, and present it to the world as philosophy. He didn't either. But once published, these, his most intimate thoughts, were considered among the most precious of all philosophical utterances by his contemporaries, by all Western Civilization after they returned to favor at the Renaissance, and most especially by the Victorian English, amongst whom The Meditations was a household book" (Rexroth, Classics Revisited, 112).Provenance: Hamilton Vogdes (bookplate).

         DE MONSTRORUM CAUSSIS, NATURA, ET DIFFERENTIIS LIBRI DUO

      Patavii: Apud Paulum Frambottum, 1634. Second Edition n. This is a fascinating early work on teratology, profusely illustrated with engravings that alternately move us to pity and strain our credulity. Fortunio Liceti (or Licetus, 1577-1657) was born prematurely as the result of the violent tossing that his mother experienced on a stormy sea. His miraculous survival gave him his name "Fortunio," and he proved a child prodigy. Devoted to Aristotelianism, Liceti was professor of philosophy and medicine at the University of Padua until his death at the age of 80. He was a prolific writer, and the present volume contains one of his best-known works. According to Garrison-Morton, "De Monstrorum," first published in 1616, is one of the earliest attempts at classifying deformities. The book is divided into 10 parts, eight of which consider various categories of human monsters: e.g., those lacking some body part, those with some part of abnormal size, those with a part conspicuously different from the natural form, and so on. Within these divisions are some 90 chapters, organized around the presumed cause of the deformity: a blow to the mother's body, a deformed uterus, poor nutrition, excessive animal passion on the part of the parents, the influence of evil spirits, etc. Liceti is particularly fascinated by creatures that are double bodied or have extra limbs. Early editions of this text appear with regularity in the marketplace, but one seldom sees an untrimmed copy like the present one.. 240 x 160 mm. (9 1/2 x 6 1/4"). 8 p.l., 262, [26] pp. Second Edition. Recent unadorned retrospective flexible vellum by Courtland Benson, EDGES UNTRIMMED. With extra engraved title page and 58 SOMETIMES STARTLING ENGRAVED ILLUSTRATIONS OF HUMAN AND ANIMAL DEFORMITIES (conjoined twins, humans with body parts in odd locations, human-mammal hybrids, etc.), some of these repeated.

         The Historie of the World, commonly called the Naturall Historie.

      London, Adam Islip, 1634. - Folio (235 x 320 mm). 2 vols. in one. (58), 614, (42) pp. (12), 632, (86) pp. Elaborate woodcut device on title-page; woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces. Contemp. calf, spine in six compartments, tooled and lettered in gilt. Pliny's renowned Natural History in its second publication in English (repeating, with corrections, the 1601 first publication), translated by Philemon Holland, the greatest translator of the Elizabethan age. The "Naturalis Historia" is one of the largest single works to have survived from the Roman empire to the modern day and purports to cover the entire field of ancient knowledge, based on the best authorities available to the author. Pliny claims to be the only Roman ever to have undertaken such a work. It comprised 37 books in 10 volumes and covered over 20.000 facts on topics including the fields of botany, zoology, astronomy , geology and mineralogy as well as the exploitation of those resources. It remains a standard work for the Roman period and the advances in technology and understanding of natural phenomena at the time. Some technical advances he discusses are the only sources for those inventions, such as hushing in mining technology or the use of water mills for crushing or grinding corn. Much of what he wrote about has been confirmed by archaeology. ''We know from Pliny that there were important pearl fisheries in the Gulf [.] Pliny identifies Tylos (Bahrain) as a place famous for its pearls [. He] attests that pearls were the most highly rated valuable in Roman society, and that those from the Gulf were specially praised [.] The pearl related finds at the site of El-Dur indicate the site was integrated into the maritime trade routes linking the Roman Empire, the Persian Empire, India and South Arabia'' (Carter). Book 6 holds a chapter that gives the first detailed account of the regions around the Gulf, including what are now Qatar, the Emirates and Oman. - Binding rubbed; front hinge splitting. Includes the final printed leaf in vol. 2, containing the publisher's advertisement to the reader that all errors have been corrected in the present edition and the errata leaf (included in the same position in 1601) has become unnecessary rather than having been mistakenly omitted. Some slight browning and brownstaining, but an excellent copy removed in 1973 from the Royal Meteorological Society (Symons Bequest, 1900) with their bookplate on the front pastedown. STC 20030. Cf. Pforzheimer 496 (1601 ed.). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Four quires a little browned, not infrequent (but inoffensive) thumbing, other trivial defects, but A VERY DESIRABLE COPY, the margins fully intact, the text entirely fresh, and the illustrations richly impressed. This is a fascinating early work on teratology, profusely illustrated with engravings that alternately move us to pity and strain our credulity. Fortunio Liceti (or Licetus, 1577-1657) was born prematurely as the result of the violent tossing that his mother experienced on a stormy sea. His miraculous survival gave him his name "Fortunio," and he proved a child prodigy. Devoted to Aristotelianism, Liceti was professor of philosophy and medicine at the University of Padua until his death at the age of 80. He was a prolific writer, and the present volume contains one of his best-known works. According to Garrison-Morton, "De Monstrorum," first published in 1616, is one of the earliest attempts at classifying deformities. The book is divided into 10 parts, eight of which consider various categories of human monsters: e.g., those lacking some body part, those with some part of abnormal size, those with a part conspicuously different from the natural form, and so on. Within these divisions are some 90 chapters, organized around the presumed cause of the deformity: a blow to the mother's body, a deformed uterus, poor nutrition, excessive animal passion on the part of the parents, the influence of evil spirits, etc. Liceti is particularly fascinated by creatures that are double bodied or have extra limbs. Early editions of this text appear with regularity in the marketplace, but one seldom sees an untrimmed copy like the present one.
