         Myles Standish

      March 13, [1645]. An unusually ornate and fine content manuscript Document Signed by approximately 74 individuals, mostly with marks, together with vellum strips affixed to the bottom (some adorned with additional manuscript) and many bearing small wax seals, one page, 22.5" x 17" with scallop top, Duxbury, Lancashire, March 13, [1645]. Extremely light toning at expected folds, majority of text quite bright and distinct.

Richard Standish (1620 - 1662) English politician who sat in the House of Commons for Preston from 1659 - 60. Richard was the son of Thomas Standish (c. 1593 - 1642) who sat in Parliament for Preston during the Short Parliament of 1640 and in the Long Parliament until 1642. Standish, who lived at Duxbury Manor in Lancashire, was very possibly a relative of Myles Standish, one of the founders of Plymouth Colony in 1620.

An unusual document in which the approximately seventy named individuals, residents of Duxbury, Chorley, Heath Charnock, collectively sell their lands and homes to Richard Standish for the sum of £1000. The document appears to be part of Standish's consolidation of control over Duxbury Manor which had been in the hands of his father Thomas Standish, who died around 1642.

Much is known and has been written concerning the life of Myles Standish (c. 1584 - 1656) after he became associated with the English Separatists (i.e. Pilgrims) who founded the colony of Plymouth in 1620. However, very little is known about Standish's early life including his place of birth, and for nearly two centuries, this question has been been the subject of scholarly debate. The little we know about Standish's origins come from his will, drafted in 1656, in which he granted to his "son & heire apparent Alexander Standish all my lands as heire apparent by lawfull decent in Ormskirke Borscouge Wrightington Maudsley Newburrow Crowston and in the Isle of man and given to mee as Right heire by lawfull decent but Surruptuously detained from mee My great Grandfather being a 2cond or younger brother from the house of Standish of Standish."(Charles H. Simmons, Jr., Plymouth Colony Records, Volume 1, Wills and Inventories 1633-1669 ,Camden, ME: Picton Press, 1996, 312-314) Of all the places named, one is on the Isle of Man while the remaining are places in Lancashire where a branch of the Standish family resided, centered at Duxbury Hall. A short passage written by Plymouth Colony's secretary, Nathaniel Morton notes a similar origin for Standish, noting he "...was a gentleman, born in Lancashire, and was heir apparent unto a great estate of lands and livings, surreptitiously detained from him; his great grandfather being a second or younger brother from the house of Standish…" (Nathaniel Morton, New England's Memorial, Boston: Congregational Board of Publication, 1855, 6th ed., 170). Unfortunately, that is all that is known about his origins. However, the fact that Standish founded the town of Duxbury in Plymouth Colony would suggest that his origins were indeed from Lancashire and not the Isle of Man. It is not known whether Alexander Standish (1626 - 1702) ever pursued these claims.

         Anatomical Print-REPRODUCTIVE ORGAN-VAGINA-URINAL TRACT-Spigelius-Casserius-1645

      - Very rare anatomical print. Plate, Lib. VIII, Tab. XVII. Plate, showing various images (including cross-sections) of the female abdomen and reproductive organ. As the key to this plate(s) is on the rear of previous plate, as issued, a copy of this key is included when applicable. Copperplate engraving on a verge type handlaid paper. Description: This very fine engraving originates from 'Anatomica operum omnium' by Adrianus Spigelius (Adriaan van den Spiegel), published by J. Blaeu, Amsterdam 1645. This splendidly produced edition of Spigelius' Collected Works was edited by the Dutch physician, Johannes Antonides van der Linden. This folio volume is illustrated with 117 anatomical plates. 78 Of these plates originate from Casserius, intended to illustrate his 'Theatrum Anatomicum', a great anatomical atlas that was still unpublished at his death in 1616. The remainder of the plates was prepared by Bucretius. The complete set of plates is seen as the most important anatomical illustration of the post-Vesalian period, and among the finest produced in the seventeenth century. Since before 1600 Casserius had been working on a fully-illustrated anatomical treatise, which he hired Fialetti to illustrate. His "De Vocis" of 1601 concludes with a promise to publish a treatise on the anatomy of the whole human body with illustrations. However, at the time of his early death in 1616 Casserio left 86 spectacular anatomical drawings by Fialetti, and also possibly their engravings, but no text. Casserius and the co-author of this work, Adrian van der Spiegel, both studied under Fabricius ab Aquapendente (Fabrici) at the University of Padua. Both worked closely with their teacher for many years, and in 1608 Casserius succeeded Fabrici in Padua's chair of surgery and anatomy, which passed in turn to Spiegel upon Casserius' death in 1616. Spiegel (Spigelius) (1578-1625) wrote an unillustrated treatise on anatomy that remained unpublished during his lifetime; in his will he appointed Daniel Bucretius (ne Rindfleisch) to see the work into print. To illustrate Spiegel's treatise, Bucretius obtained 77 of Fialetti's original 86 anatomical plates from the heirs of Casserius (probably engraved by J. Maurer), and commissioned 20 more by Fialetti and engraved by Valesio to complete the series (the remaining 9 plates left by Casserius were used to illustrate Spiegel's De Formato Foetu [1626]), which are part of this work. In the complete series, the largest number of plates, forty-three - and these perhaps the most memorable - are to be found in Liber IV, on the muscles. There are also interesting illustrations on the genito-urinary system in Liber VIII and on the brain in Liber X-one of these, showing the arterial circle at the brain, predates the Willis-Wren illustration [from Willis's Cerebri Anatome (1664)]. Except for those few plates which were derived from Vesalius, the anatomists had reconsidered ways of presenting human anatomy. In doing so they produced the first original series of illustrations of the anatomy of the human body since Vesalius. *Ref: Roberts & Tomlinson: The Fabric of the Body, pp. 262-63; see also pp. 259-61; Cazort, Kornell, Roberts: The Ingenious Machine of Nature: Four Centuries of Art and Anatomy (1996) pp. 167-68; Choulant-Frank 225; Garrison-Morton 381; Heirs of Hippocrates 414; NLM/Krivatsy 2202; 11297 (citing Casserio's and Spiegel's works separately); Sappol, Dream Anatomy pp. 110-111, 113; Waller 9121 and 1812.Artists and Engravers: Authors: Adriaan van den Spiegel, name sometimes written as Adrianus Spigelius (1578-1625) was a Flemish anatomist who was born in Brussels. For much of his career he practiced medicine in Padua, and is considered one of the great physicians associated with that city. He became professor of Anatomy in 1615, succeeding J. Casserius. At Padua he studied anatomy under Girolamo Fabrizio (1537-1619) and Julius Casserius (Giulio Casseri: 1552?1616). His best written work on anatomy is De humani

         Breve noticia da iornada que Monsenhor Marques de Rulhac Embaixador extraordinario do Christianissimo Rey de França Luis XIIII fez a Portugal, & Embaixada, que deu a elRey nosso senhor D. João IV, Restaurador de Portugal.

      Lisbon, Na Officina de Domingos Lopes Rosa, 1645. - 4°, recent antique sheep, spine gilt with raised bands in six compartments, crimson leather lettering-piece, gilt letter, text-block edges rouged Caption title. Four-line woodcut initial. Light browning. In good to very good condition. Old ink foliation. A few old notes, in ink. (6 ll.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Rare tract from the period of restoration of Portuguese independence, describing the trip from La Rochelle and the ceremonial arrival at the Portuguese court of French Ambassador Louis de Goth, Marquis de Rouillac. Among the details are brief descriptions of the landmarks that the ambassador was taken to visit and an account of his meeting with D. João IV, who seems to have been dripping with diamonds (f. A4r). Some of the speeches are transcribed, and at the end of the volume are two sonnets about the ambassador's presentation to the king and queen.King Louis XIII of France had signed a treaty of alliance with Portugal on June 1, 1641; the beginning of this pamphlet notes that Louis XIV was eager to continue it. The alliance was part of the diplomatic maneuvering involved in the Thirty Years' War, which began as a war between Catholics and Protestants, but widened into a battle between the Bourbons and Habsburgs: hence the French at this time supported rebellions in Catalonia and in Portugal. The Thirty Years' War significantly affected the outcome of the Portuguese struggle for independence (the Restauração), since it prevented the King of Spain from directing his full military might against Portugal.*** Arouca N85.

         Honor del Gran Patriarca San Ignacio de Loyola, fundador de la Compania de Jesus, en que se propone su vida, y la de si Discipulo el Apostol de las Indias S. Francisco Xavier. Con la milagrosa historia del admirable Padre Marcelo Mastrilli

      First edition. Part of Nieremberg´s set of works and biographies usually gathered as the Varones, each part complete in itself, this is the third part volume in the series, and contains the life of the founder of the Order, as well as plenty material on Japan and South America. It is a compendium of the explorations, travels, discoveries, and evolution of the Jesuits, during the period of their most significant expansion. "This work having been published at different periods during the space of almost a century... The interest of the work, excluding some 'jesuitical chaff', is not inferior to its rarity, as it contains accounts of many early voyages to the Indies, not elsewhere to be found" (Sabin). On Japan, it includes the life, missionary work and martyrdom of Father Marcelo Mastrili (1603 - 1637) in Japan on Mount Unzen (outskirts of Nagasaki) under the Tokugawa Shogunate. Mastrili had sailed to Japan with aims of reconverting the "fallen priest" Christovao Ferreira who had renounced his faith. Ferreira (c. 1580 - 1650) was a Portuguese Jesuit missionary, he worked in Japan from 1609 to 1633 and was the head of the Jesuit Order in that country during the religious purges against Christianity in 1633; after being tortured for hours, committed apostasy, subsequently changing his name to Sawano Chuan and registering at a Buddhist temple. Mastrili was arrested shortly after landing - the relation of his travesty towards Japan is also noted-; he was then submitted to torture and beheaded. Mysticism did not elude Mastrili, he reported to having visions of St. Francis Xavier who cured him twice. Furthermore, it contains accounts of missions to Goa, Mindanao and Japan. Subjects include "La celestial vocacion a la mission de la India", "La apostolica misiondel P. Marcelo en la jornada de Mindanao", "La entrada en el Japon... tormentos y muerte gloriosa". Other volumes in the series include the "Ideas de virtud en algunos Claros Varones de la Compañia de Jesus", and the "Firmamento religioso de luzidos Astros. En algunos claros varones de la Compañia de Jesus, cumplense en este tomo, y en el antecedente una centuria entera". Sabin, 55271.

         Shisho wakan gounzu or Shisho wakan koto hennen gounzu [A Chronology of Japanese and Chinese History]

      Woodblock printed. 67; 46; 46 folding leaves. Three vols. Large 8vo (283 x 192 mm.), orig. blue brocade design paper wrappers (slight worming carefully restored), orig. block-printed title label on upper cover of Vol. I (label partly missing), new stitching. [Japan]: ca. 1645. First edition and very rare; this book is based on the Jusen wakan koto hennen gounzu (ca. 1611) by Nichisei (or Nichisho or Enchi, 1554-1614), a priest at the Yohoji Temple in Kyoto, where they printed "a series of important books…between 1600 and 1614" (Chibbett) with movable types. Nichisei supervised the temple's printing program and also wrote and edited most of the works himself. Chronology was used in this work to legitimize the ruling families and dynasties and to provide a historical context and memory. Yoshida (1598-1672), a member of a prominent family of physicians and engineers, is most famous for his Jinko-ki (1st ed.: 1627 and many later eds.), "the first great work on arithmetic to appear in Japan."-Smith, History of Mathematics, Vol. I, p. 437. It explains operations on the soroban (abacus), including square and cube root. It has some interesting applications and gives 3.16 for the value of pi. In one of his later editions Yoshida appended a number of advanced problems to be solved by competitors. This procedure of issuing problems started among the Japanese and was kept up until 1813 and helped to stimulate mathematical activity. Yoshida's mathematical skills and knowledge of Chinese made him uniquely prepared to compile the present chronological work. The first volume begins with a genealogical table of the emperors of Japan, beginning with Jimmu in the 7th century B.C. through the 110th (misnumbered 111), Go-Komyo (reigned 1643-54). It bears the stamp of Yoshida. This is followed by three leaves describing the gods from which Jimmu descended. Following this are biographical sketches of each Japanese emperor up through Gomizunoo. Then there are tables listing the gods and emperors of both Japan (on top of the page) and China (on the lower half). The final section of Vol. I and the second and third volumes provide a detailed account of the events from the beginnings of both Japanese and Chinese history up to 1645 in parallel texts. Very nice set from the library of Donald and Mary Hyde (their sale, Christie's NYC, 7 October 1988, lot 94). Preserved in a box. ❧ Cajori, A History of Mathematics, pp. 78-79. Chibbett, The History of Japanese Printing and Book Illustration, p. 72. Smith & Mikami, A History of Japanese Mathematics, pp. 59-62.
