Palau, nº. 292741, no reseña las páginas preliminares. Muy buen ejemplar muy raro en mercado del que no existe ejemplar alguno en bibliotecas españolas. Segunda traducción al francés de las obras del Beato Juan de la Cruz, a partir de la tercera edición impresa en Madrid por la Viuda de Madrigal en 1630, en la que por primera vez se incluía el Cántico Espiritual. Anteriormente, el carmelita René Gaultier, que jugó un papel imprescindible en la expansión del Carmelo Reformado en Francia, había dado a la estampa su traslación en formato 8º. de Les oeuvres spirituelles pour acheminer les ames á la parfaicte union avec Dieu, du bienhereux P. Jean de la Croix (Paris, Michel Sonnius, 1621-22), así como la primicia del Cantique d´amour divinin, entre Jesus-Christ et l'Ame devote' (Paris, Adrian Tapinart, 1622), a partir de los manuscritos que poseía Ana de Jesús. En este caso, la traslación de Cyprien de la Nativité (1605-1680), además de ser más completa, se convierte en la más influyente en el ámbito francófono, reeditándose en versiones revisadas hasta nuestros días. Su gran calidad literaria fue destacada por el poeta vanguardista Paul Valéry, que le consideró como "uno de los poetas más perfectos de Francia". Conviene llamar la atención sobre la recreación que las versiones francesas hicieron del boceto simbólico del Monte Carmelo, y que se desarrolla en un grabado alegórico humanizado.

         Study of a Variegated Tulip.

      Holland 18th century - Watercolour on Dutch laid paper, excellent condition, some mild browning. Dimensions: 180 by 130mm. (7 by 5 inches). This study of a delicate purple variegated tulip is in the manner of Anthony Claesz who produced his "Tulip Book" around 1641. It was a prime example of the florilegia commissioned to illustrate the different varieties of tulip bulb, which at the time commanded extraordinarily high prices during the economic bubble of the early 17th century that became known as Tulipomania. The naturally beautiful nature of these works ensured their images would be copied for decades to come by painters and gardeners alike. Claesz was a Dutch master in his own right, with several highly accomplished works to his name. However, as with most of the great Dutch masters of this period, they happily supplemented their income by illustrating such books. It also allowed them to study in detail subjects that would later be incorporated into their great flower pieces. Tulipomania, or Tulip Mania, was an early 17th century by-product of the economic boom experienced by Holland, newly independent from Spain, as it consolidated it trade links, particularly through the Dutch East Indies Company. Of the many exotic products and specimens to be introduced to Europe, the tulip particularly captured the desire for such new luxuries. The price for the more highly sought-after bulbs could be ten times the annual salary of the average skilled worker. It is little wonder it culminated in t he market crash of the 1630s. Tulips stood out in comparison with European botany in the intensity of their colouring, with the variegated varieties being particularly prized. This example is of the violetten, or purple and white striped strain. The variegation was originally the result of the mosaic virus, also known as the breaking virus, transmitted by aphids, that transformed the pigmentation in this manner, though at the expense of weakening the plant. The same effect was later reacreated by deliberate cross-pollination.

         Cataluña Defendida de sus Emulos. Illustrada con sus Hechos, Fidelidad, y Servicios a sus Reyes. Por el Doctor Antonio Ramques, natural de la Seo de Urgel. Por mandado del Señor Deputado Real.

      En Lerida, por Enrique Castañ, 1641. - in-4. 4ff. 17pp. (i.e.71). 1f. Plein vélin souple d'origine. Edition Originale dédiée à Pau Claris et à l'ensemble des membres de la Députation, de cet ouvrage rarissime imprimé à Lérida en décembre 1640, quelques mois après les débuts de la guerre des Faucheurs qui avait vu les paysans catalans prendre le contrôle de Barcelone et assassiner son gouverneur. Après avoir exposé les faits qui démontraient à ses yeux la loyauté de la Catalogne à l'égard de ses rois, autant sur le plan militaire que sur celui de l'économie et de la culture, l'auteur proteste contre le traitement reçu en retour dans les premières années du règne de Philippe IV, et développe une importante série d'arguments en faveur de l'indépendance de la Catalogne sous forme de République. "En el texto de Marqués domina el tema de la anti tirania y en ella, no por casualidad, hace su aparición la posible solución republicana. Entre los privilegios de Barcelona 'otro mayor tiene que es el de regirse y governarse para si misma como la Señoria de Venecia o Génova siempre que los Reyes no le guarden sus fueros y privilegio'. A diferencia de Marti, Marqués insiste especialmente en los elementos del autogobierno ciudadano y provincial. Entre los 106 privilegios de Barcelona se encuentran el de recibir el juramento de los reyes, el de poder enviar cónsules al exterior, el que otorga a sus consellers plena jurisdicción civil y criminal; éstos pueden ordenar normas y permanecen con la cabeza cubierta en presencia del rey (cap. 11). Por lo que se refiere a la Generalitat, creada para el servicio de Dios, del rey y de la patria y para tutelar las propias leyes y libertades, sus privilegios no son concesiones sino que tienen una naturaleza contractual, han sido jurados y son inviolables como sostienen los libros sagrados y Platón en el libro octavo de la República" (Victor Ivo Comparato). Précieux exemplaire du grand Colbert, avec la mention manuscrite "Bibliotheca Colbertina" sur la page de titre et dans un superbe état de conservation (quelques rousseurs éparses). Bibliotheca Colbetina, II, 9199. Cf. Vittor Ivo Comparato, "Barcelona y Napoles en la busqueda de un modelo politico: analogis, diferencias, contactos", in: [Attributes: First Edition]

Quarto: [8], 264 [i.e. 270], [10] pp. Lacks gathering E (pp. 25-32). With four printer's blank leaves at the front and three at the back. Text interleaved throughout with printer's blank leaves. Bound in late 19th Century full black leather decorated in gilt, black suede endpapers, with modest wear at the spine ends, tidemarks visible on the first few leaves; a very good copy. With extensive manuscript annotations on many of the printer's blank leaves and marginal notes in a contemporary or 18th Century hand. Includes several owner's names (Ana Johnson, Edward [surname illegible] dated 1736, and Thomas Goodwin dated 1736, perhaps the author's son or another relation of the author), with an intriguing note in pencil on the first leaf (verso): "Pray give this Book to Mrs. Piozzi," presumably referring to Hester Lynch Thrale (later Mrs. Piozzi), the confidante of Dr. Samuel Johnson. This association is made all the more intriguing as the blank leaf following the title page is signed in ink: "H: M: Thrale, 1804," this being Hester Thrale's first born daughter Hester Maria "Queeney" Thrale, whom Johnson often addressed in his correspondence as "My sweet, dear, pretty, little Miss."

         Architectura privata: das ist: Gründtliche Beschreibung ... inn was Form ... ein ... Bürgerliches Wohnhauss ... erbawet ... worden

      Augsburg: Johann Schultes and Mathias Rembold, 1641. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. Folio (300 x 203 mm). Letterpress title printed in red and black (torn and repaired), 15 double-page or folding engraved plates or plans by Matthäus Rembold (1629-1657), on guards. Contemporary vellum. Some plates trimmed closely. Provenance: purchased from Ars Libri, 1990. FIRST EDITION of this work on civil architecture by the eminent Ulm architect Joseph Furttenbach the Elder. The Architectura privata describes his own dwelling-house and grounds, and the fine copperplates show the basics and elevations of the house, windows, portals, grotto and gardens, among other things. With its small grotto, richly decorated with rare flowers arranged in compartments, Furttenbach's garden courtyard epitomizes the intimate "secret garden" owned by the wealthy bourgeoisie in early seventeenth-century Germany and the Netherlands. The grotto in his garden is described as being filled with artifice and exotica, including shell-encrusted sculptures and waterworks, painted cosmological imagery, and mirrors. The flowers depicted are identifiable as the most sought after and costly bulbs of the period, the narcissus, tulip, fritillary, and crown imperial, demonstrating Furttenbach's knowledge of current botanical research. Following his studies in architecture and engineering in Italy, Furttenbach returned to Ulm where he designed buildings and gardens and published a number of treatises on architecture and fortification. His construction of the Ulm city fortifications were among the strongest of their time, remaining impregnable during the Thirty Years' War. Berlin Kat. 1958.

Letterpress title printed in red and black (torn and repaired), 15 double-page or folding engraved plates or plans by Matthäus Rembold (1629-1657), on guards. Contemporary vellum. Some plates trimmed closely. Provenance: purchased from Ars Libri, 1990. FIRST EDITION of this work on civil architecture by the eminent Ulm architect Joseph Furttenbach the Elder. The Architectura privata describes his own dwelling-house and grounds, and the fine copperplates show the basics and elevations of the house, windows, portals, grotto and gardens, among other things. With its small grotto, richly decorated with rare flowers arranged in compartments, Furttenbach's garden courtyard epitomizes the intimate "secret garden" owned by the wealthy bourgeoisie in early seventeenth-century Germany and the Netherlands. The grotto in his garden is described as being filled with artifice and exotica, including shell-encrusted sculptures and waterworks, painted cosmological imagery, and mirrors. The flowers depicted are identifiable as the most sought after and costly bulbs of the period, the narcissus, tulip, fritillary, and crown imperial, demonstrating Furttenbach's knowledge of current botanical research. Following his studies in architecture and engineering in Italy, Furttenbach returned to Ulm where he designed buildings and gardens and published a number of treatises on architecture and fortification. His construction of the Ulm city fortifications were among the strongest of their time, remaining impregnable during the Thirty Years' War. Berlin Kat. 1958. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow.

         A short and true relation concerning the soap-business. Containing the severall patents; proclamations, orders, whereby the Soape-makers of London, and other His Majesties subjects, were damnified, by the Gentlemen that were the patentees for soape at Westminister, with the particular proceedings concerning the same.

      London printed for Nicholas Bourne at the South Entrance of the Royall Exchange 1641 - 4to, 29 + (1)pp, without the final blank, inksplash on title, no pages numbered after p.16, late 19th century half calf with a label. A good copy. First and only edition. Amex 420. Goldsmiths 724. Kress 603. Wing S.3555. See Scott, The Constitution and Finance of English, Scottish and Irish Joint-Stock Companies to 1720> I, p.219. An interesting and amusing tract on commercial rivalry, monopolistic oppression, consumer fraud and the making of soap, with reference to the Greenland Whale Fishery Company. In 1631, hoping to exploit the soap trade as a source of revenue, Charles I granted a monopoly of soap-manufactures to a Westminster group made up of inexperienced Catholic recusants. The new patent was justified on the basis of invention which allegedly made a better, cheaper white soap without the use of whale oil, which had been the key ingredient in the patent of the dispossessed London soap makers: the latter were now ruthlessly suppressed, brought before the Star Chamber, and even jailed. In this petition the Londoners narrate the extraordinary repressive measures taken against themselves and the general public and expose the fraud of their Westminster rivals, who in fact continued to use whale oil while producing an inferior and more expensive product. 'The economies, as a matter of fact, had not become actual; and the new company, working by its old methods, would be forced, in justice to itself, to recover the Crown-royalty as well as the sums paid to the members of the late society of Soapers. Moreover, when it obtained a monopoly, it was not in human nature for the soap-boilers to abstain from obtaining pecuniary compensation for their past sufferings by surreptitiously advancing prices, in spite of proclamations to the contrary effect. Therefore it follows that the consumer was destined to pay heavily for the disturbance of the trade during the past five years: and until the abolition of monopolies of this character, the price was close upon double what it had been in 1630'. [Scott].

In this anonymous work, "Sponge, the Proctor," a lawyer, and 'Hunter, the Parator," a combination of bailiff and sheriff, discuss the best ways to profit from the abuses of the Ecclesiastical Courts and celebrate the exclusive power of the Doctors' Commons.

Contemporary calf, blind rules with corner fillets to boards, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed. Moderate browning to text, faint spotting to a few leaves. An appealing copy in a handsome binding. $500. * Second and final edition. Sir John Doddridge, a judge during the reign of Charles I, was a formidably learned jurist who was both a common lawyer and a civilian who held a D.C.L. from Cambridge. Held in high esteem by Holdsworth, he is best known for English Lawyer: Describing a Method for the Managing of the Laws of this Land (1631). He may also be the actual author of William Sheppard's The Touch-Stone of Common Assurances (1648), though this is still a matter of debate. A Compleat Parson is based on a series of lectures on ecclesiastical law delivered at New-Inn. It is a work on advowson, which is the right to appoint or nominate a person to a vacant church benefice. Both editions of this work are scarce.

         Document signed ("Carolus R.").

      Westminster, 12. II. 1641. - Latin handwriting, calligraphy and copperplate engraving (portrait) on vellum. Ca. 600 x 510 mm (with plica folded). Wants seal. Royal exemplification for the legal transfer of a property, the manor Worthen in Shropshire (Salop) with all its appurtenances, including a mill, messuage, land, meadows, pastures, woods, and parts in Brockton, Over and Nether Tickley, Hampton, Hayes, Ewerne, Westbury, Alberbury and Marton, as well as the rectory of the church of Worthen. Isaac Morgan and Samuel Whitehall were the owners and sellers. As the property was entailed, selling it to Messrs. John Parker and John Sand necessitated a roundabout procedure - a collusive action known as a "Common Recovery", in the course of which the purchasers would claim their alleged inheritance in the Court of Common Pleas from a fictitious third party. As this party failed to appear in court, the claimant would win the case by default, "barring the entails", and the property so acquired became a free allodium. The present royal document constitutes a so-called "Exemplification of a Common Recovery", a formal transcript of the proceedings in the monarch's name, using an elaborate script imitating a medieval chancery hand (we are indebted to Mr Michael Webb, of the Bodleian Library, for his valuable assistance in cataloguing this item). The following year marked the beginning of the Civil War; in January 1649, Charles I was sentenced to death by Parliament and executed for High Treason. - Ink rubbed in places, otherwise well preserved. Folded.

Viniendo por Generales don Geronimo de Sandoual, y don Juan de Vega Bacan

      First edition. Exceedingly rare account on the naval engagement occurred off the port of Havana in 1641 between the Dutch pirate fleet and the Spanish fleet commanded by Geronimo de Sandoval and Juan de Vega Bazan. "Having sortied from Havana to Cape Corrientes earlier this month to chase away any Dutch interlopers prowling off Cuba´s shoreline, the battle fleet of Adms. Geronimo Gomez de Sanfoval and Juan de Vega Bazan has circled around the southern coast to within sight... the next day, 17 Dutch vessels appear. They pause to form up into battle formation and then charge into the waiting Spaniards five hours later" (Wars of the Americas: A Chronology of Armed Conflict, David Marley), the imprint begins with a note on the resolution of the Dutch in attacking, and the faux information they had on the amount of Dutch vessels sailing in those waters. The narrator goes into detail about the courage and strength in battle of the Spanish, and ends with the losses suffered. Extremely rare, the only copy traceable on AE is the one offered by Maggs in 1927, VI, item 361. Only one copy in the United States, Brown University, the rest are microfilms. Palau, 258221.

         Cosmographie ou doctrine de la sphere. Avec un traitté de la geographie. Sedan, François Chayer, 1661. 8vo. Near contemporary half vellum.

      Cf. Barbier 9356; Houzeau & Lancaster 10920; KVK & WorldCat (3 copies of 1641 ed.); not in BN Paris; Zinner. Apparently the only surviving copy, not found recorded, of the second (and last) edition of a book devoted to astrolabes, globes, cosmography and geography by the French philosopher Claude Pithois (1587-1676). A two-page foreword addressed "a ceux qui le meritent" notes among other things that the book is useful for people compiling almanacs or writing horoscopes, but does not refer to the earlier edition. A four-page "prelude" in XII numbered points follows, mainly defining terms, then IV numbered treatises: "Traitté de la sphere en general" (on Ptolemaic astrolabes, the earth and the universe: the "sphere artificielle" and "sphere naturelle"), "Traitté de la region celeste" (on the sun, moon, planets and stars, including constellations), "Traitté de la region elementaire" (on the earth, subterranean regions, seas and air, associated with the four elements) and "Traitté des principes de la geographie" (with special emphasis on globes). It is a simple introduction to the subjects, explaining many different terms and concepts. Until now it was known only from the very rare first edition (1641), printed by Pierre Jannon at Sedan. The deliberate destruction of the books of the Protestant Academy at Sedan in 1681 no doubt contributed to the rarity of Sedan books of this period and this one was probably intended for students, who no doubt wore out most copies.With some minor marginal chips, tears and holes, not approaching the text, but otherwise in very good condition and almost entirely untrimmed. The binding is good, with only a few tiny wormholes in the spine. The apparently unique surviving copy of the second and last edition of a work on astrolabes and cosmography, also very rare in its first edition.

         Leycesters Common-wealth [bound with Leycesters Ghost, 1641] Conceived, spoken and published with most earnest protestation of all Dutifull good will and affection towards the Realm, for whose good onely, it is made common to many.

      n.p. 1641 - First edition. 4to. (189x135mm). pp. [viii], 182, [ii], 35. Full calf, with gilt double fillet to the borders of the upper and lower covers. Spine has five raised bands and six compartments, lavishly decorated in gilt. The second compartment has a red label with the title in gilt. Highly decorated dentelles and marbled endpapers. Some discolouration and slight cracking to the outer edges of the boards. Rubbing to the head and foot of the spine and to the edges but this is a very nice, near fine binding. The contents are fine with only minor foxing. There is an engraved portrait, by W. Marshall, of Robert Dudley, The Earl of Leicester tipped in on the verso of the blank page before the title page. The front pastedown has the armorial bookplate of Kennet of the Dene and there is a handwritten note by Lord Kennet tipped in on the first blank page together with the sale catalogue entry noted in pencil "Maggs 1958". "Leycesters commonwealth" is a political tract against Elizabeth I's government and in particular, Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. More specifically, it was read as a Catholic attack on the increasing Protestantism of Elizabeth's advisors. It went through many stages and forms, both in manuscript and in print, and is most well known by the title "Leicester's commonwealth" which was the title given to it in 1641. This 1641 edition was the basis for much subsequent historical and biographical writing on Leicester. It was first printed in Antwerp in 1584 with the title "The copie of a leter, wryten by a master of arte of Cambridge, to his friend in London". It was formerly attributed to Robert Parsons (who always denied authorship) and is sometimes attributed to Thomas Morgan. The true identity of the author is so uncertain that we have ascribed it to Anon. "Leycesters commonwealth" was republished in 1641 and was versified as "Leycesters ghost" in that same year. Leycester's Ghost is often attributed to Thomas Rogers but also to to Simon Ford, William Cecil, Lord Burghley, and Robert Parsons. Again, Anon might be the safest attribution. ESTC.

         Cosmographie ou doctrine de la sphere. Avec un traitté de la geographie. Sedan, François Chayer, 1661. 8vo. Near contemporary half vellum.

      Cf. Barbier 9356; Houzeau & Lancaster 10920; KVK & WorldCat (3 copies of 1641 ed.); not in BN Paris; Zinner. Apparently the only surviving copy, not found recorded, of the second (and last) edition of a book devoted to astrolabes, globes, cosmography and geography by the French philosopher Claude Pithois (1587-1676). A two-page foreword addressed "a ceux qui le meritent" notes among other things that the book is useful for people compiling almanacs or writing horoscopes, but does not refer to the earlier edition. A four-page "prelude" in XII numbered points follows, mainly defining terms, then IV numbered treatises: "Traitté de la sphere en general" (on Ptolemaic astrolabes, the earth and the universe: the "sphere artificielle" and "sphere naturelle"), "Traitté de la region celeste" (on the sun, moon, planets and stars, including constellations), "Traitté de la region elementaire" (on the earth, subterranean regions, seas and air, associated with the four elements) and "Traitté des principes de la geographie" (with special emphasis on globes). It is a simple introduction to the subjects, explaining many different terms and concepts. Until now it was known only from the very rare first edition (1641), printed by Pierre Jannon at Sedan. The deliberate destruction of the books of the Protestant Academy at Sedan in 1681 no doubt contributed to the rarity of Sedan books of this period and this one was probably intended for students, who no doubt wore out most copies.With some minor marginal chips, tears and holes, not approaching the text, but otherwise in very good condition and almost entirely untrimmed. The binding is good, with only a few tiny wormholes in the spine. The apparently unique surviving copy of the second and last edition of a work on astrolabes and cosmography, also very rare in its first edition.
