        Hugo Grotius, his discourses, I. Of God, and his providence. II. Of Christ, his miracles and doctrine. With annotations, and the authors life. An appendix containing his judgement in sundry points controverted

      London: Printed by A. Miller for William Lee, 1652. [22], 96, 73-118pp. Without terminal blank. Text complete despite erratic pagination. 'Appendix. Hugo Grotius his judgement in sundry points controverted' has a separated title dated 1653. [Bound with;] GROTIUS, Hugo. The mourner comforted. An epistle consolatory; written by Hugo Grotius to Monsieur du Maurier the French embassadour at the Hague. Translated on a sad occasion, by C[lement] B[arksdale] London. Printed by A. M[iller] for Edward Lee, 1652. First English edition. [4], 31pp, [1]. With an engraved portrait frontispiece bound before first work. 12mo. Recent calf-backed decorated paper boards, lettered in gilt. Very minor rubbing to extremities. Shaving to foot of frontispiece with loss of artist's attribution [Thos. Cross sculpsit.], with ink ownership inscription to verso 'Tho: Nicoll / 1657', slight marginal repair to bottom corner of B12, occasional very small ink spots to margins, minor ink deletion to imprint of second work, ink ownership inscription to RFEP 'John Henishall / Cheshire 1788', from the recently dispersed library of Hugh Selbourne, with private ink-stamps to verso of title and p.51. Two early English translations of the religious writings of Dutch humanist, Hugo Grotius (1583-1646). The first, his discourses on the Christian faith, composed during his imprisonment of 1619-21 in Loevestein castle (from which he would escape in a book chest), initially appeared in Dutch in 1622, with a widely successful Latin edition issued in 1627 under the title of De veritate religionis Christianae. The purpose of the work was to persuade followers of Judaism and Islam to convert to Christianity. The function of religion, Grotius argues, is to induce in individuals behaviour that benefits society, Christianity achieves this with greater success than alternative faiths. Islam, he argues, promotes the advancement of the doctrine through warfare, whilst Judaism stresses temporal reward above those of an afterlife, a primary motive for proper conduct. Christianity avoids these perceived errors. The second work is devotional piece penned to console the French Ambassador to the Hague, Louis Aubery Du Maurier (1609-1687) upon the death of his wife; translated out of the Dutch by Clement Barksdale (1609-1687), whom considered Grotius 'the wisest scholar of his time'. Wing G2109, G2114.. Second edition corrected.

      printed by Richard Hodgkinsonne, for Andrew Crooke, London 1652 - Two parts in one volume. Folio (280 x 190 mm). [8], 137; [5], 138-214, 216-244, 244-274 leaves. Signatures: )(4 2)(4 A-4A4.

Lacking terminal blank 4A4. Extra-illustrated with inserted engravings (cut down and pasted on blanks) from the 1687 London edition. Book block recased in a 20th century half calf, spine with gilt-decoration, original gilt-lettered label preserved (rubbing of extremities), red-dyed edges, new endpapers. Title, first- and final leaf restored at outer blank margins, paper slip with cancelled inscription pasted on title-page, light browning and occasional minor spotting of text and plates, a few ink annotations, very faint dampstaining to upper portion, few ink smudges, small hole in leaf L4 and burn hole in leaf Nn4 costing a few letters of text. Still a very good copy, unusual with the extra engravings bound in at an early stage. ---- Palau 52463; Wing C 1776; ESTC R236794. Important English edition of Don Quixote, being the third edition of the first part and the second edition of the second part of Shelton's translation, and the first one-volume edition of both parts. When the first part was first published in 1612, Shelton's translation was the first in any language. The second part was first published in English in 1620 together with the second edition of the first part. The marginal staining and browning of the laid paper on which the engraved plates are pasted on largly corresponds with the adjacent text pages suggesting that these blanks have been inserted long time ago, probably shortly after publication of the first illustrated English edition in 1687 from which the engravings were taken from. Our copy thus contain the entire suit of plates of this 1687 edition (originally 16 illustrations on 8 plates). - Visit our website for additional images and information. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

P. D. Clementis Merlini Sacrae Rotae Rom. Decani secundum Venetam editionem.

      Venice, Turrin, 1652 + Augustae Taurinorum, 1652. Folio. Bound in two magnificent, splendidly gilt, contemporary, uniform full calf bindings. Profusely gilt all over. All edges gilt. Spines elaborately gilt; expertly restored at capitals, barely noticeable. Boards with large gilt elaborately ornameted frames, the inner ones with four beautiful ornamental fans in the corners (some thus call this style a "fan-binding"). Front board with centre-pieces consisting in the coat of arms of Antonio Barberini, with the three bees, inside an octagon that is also profusely ornamented. The centre-pieces of the back boards have been replaced early on with an anonymous coat of arms, to hide the identity of the previous owner. This has been done very well and is not noticeable at a first glance. This near-contemporary anonymous coat of arms, in the exact same style as the ornamentation and leather of the binding, is also place on the inside of the front board of vol. 1. Traces of the previous owner has also been removed by cutting out his name from the title-pages and from the first dedication-leaf of vol. 1. Light occasional brownspotting, but a overall a very well preserved, splendid set.Vol. 1 with engraved portrait of Clements Merlino to verso of half-title and with large engraved coat of arms of Antonio Barberini. Vol. 2 with large engraved coat of arms of Bernardino Spada. Engravings are by Zampa. Title-pages printed in red and black. (76), 660; (4), 532, (188) (Index Materiarum et Rerum Notabilium) pp. + 20, (4) pp. (Decisiones Omissae). ¶ A magnificent copy in splendid contemporary bindings, bound for Cardinal Antonio Barberini, of this work containing the 896 decisions of the tribunal of the Roman Catholic Church, the Roman Rota, dating from 10 Dec. 1621 through 23 June 1642. Antonio Barberini (1607-1671), cardinal, Archbishop of Reims, military leader, and patron of the arts, was one of the most prominent and influential members of the House of Barberini. As one of the cardinal-nephews of Pope Urban VIII and a supporter of France, he played a significant role at a number of the papal conclaves of the 17th century, and he is famous for having helped shape politics, religion, art, and music of 17th century Italy.The Catholic Church has a complete legal system, which is the oldest in the West still in use today, and with that follows also a tribunal that presides over judicial trials conducted in the Catholic Church. This highest appellate tribunal of the Roman Catholic Church is called the "Tribunal Apostolicum Rotae Romanae", often just referred to as The "Roman Rota", previously the "Apostolic Court of Audience". It is the highest ecclesiastical court constituted by the Holy See, and the Pope himself is the supreme ecclesiastical judge. The "Rota" (Latin for "wheel") was established in the 13th century and was called such, because the judges ("auditors") originally met in a round room to hear cases. The present work contains the decisions of the Rota from Dec. 1621 till June 1642.

In qua ostenditur, constitutionem hanc non modo priorum mutationum rationibus convenire, et ex illis necessario sequi; sed iis etiam, quae in parlamento et exercitu declarata palam atque acta sunt, prorsus esse constentaneum. Stessi dati tip. Pp. 104. Quattro parti in un volume di cm. 13. Bella legatura coeva in piena perg. rigida con unghie e titoli ms. al dorso. Esemplare ben conservato. Celebri opere che si collocano nell'ambito della controversia tra Milton e Salmasio che diedero alle stampe violenti saggi di controversia tra il 1649 ed il 1660. Salmasio nel 1649 pubblicò la Defensio regia, apologia del re d'Inghilterra Carlo I (1600-1649), scritta su commissione del figlio Carlo II, rifugiato in Francia in seguito alla condanna a morte del padre accusato da Cromwell e dal parlamento di alto tradimento. Seguirono due difese del popolo anglicano di Milton ed una successiva risposta di Salmasio datata 1660, che non riuscì a limitare il crollo della sua credibilità determinata proprio dagli scritti di Milton. Non comune. Cfr. Brunet, III, 1733; Graesse, IV, 532..

        Defensio cartesiana adversus Iacobum Revium... et Cyriacum Lentulum... pars prior Exoterica, in qua Renati Cartesii Dissertatio de methodo vindicatur

      Apud Ludovicum Elzevier, 1652. Cm. 14,5, pp. (12) 631 (1). Legatura del tempo in cart. alla rustica con nervi passanti e titoli ms. al dorso. Una mancanza all'angolo inferiore destro del frontrespizio che interessa parte dei dati tipografici (ricostruito all'epoca), peraltro esemplare in ottimo stato di conservazione. Opera assai significativa in cui il filosofo J. Clauberg difende le idee di Cartesio tentando di dimostrare la non contradditorietà tra aristotelismo e filosofia cartesiana. Difendendolo quindi dagli attacchi di empietà da parte del Revius e del Lentulus. Quest'ultimo può essere considerato l'iniziatore dell'occasionalismo. Tale corrente di pensiero si proponeva di studiare come avvenisse l'interazione tra le azioni dell'anima e quelle del corpo, entità che Cartesio, in polemica con la tradizione precedente, aveva sostenuto essere radicalmente eterogenee. Molto raro.

        Medecynboeck van diversche medecynen ende remedien die ick met groote moeyten ende liefde daer toe hebbende bij een vergadert hebbe[!] om mijnen even naesten te moghen helpen ...[South Holland?], 1652[-ca. 1660]. 4to (21 x 16 cm). Manuscript written in a gothic hand with headings in a Latin hand, in brown and red ink on paper, the author/compiler's preliminary note (quoted here as the title) opening with a large decorated gothic M. Contemporary (ca. 1660) vellum.

      A very extensive and detailed manuscript book of medicinal recipes in Dutch, written by a woman who was clearly an experienced apothecary. The book has no surviving title-page, but begins with a two-page preliminary note whose opening words we quote above as the title. It continues with a note indicating that one person differs from another and that one therefore also needs different medicines for different people, followed by a page with three recipes for adjusting the flavour of beer and a brief note on wine, then a page giving the relations between various units of weight used by apothecaries. The remedies for a wide variety of ailments follow, offering remedies for everything from constipation to plague. It tells how to extract medicinal oils, prepare powders, salves, syrups and waters, and gives instructions for distilling. Several recipes involve wine, beer or other alcoholic drinks. A long section near the end covers ailments of women and children, including problems related to pregnancy. While women in the Dutch golden age enjoyed greater opportunities to work in traditionally male professions than in most countries, their work remains much less well documented than that of their male counterparts, so the present manuscript provides a remarkable window into a woman's contribution to medicine and pharmacology.Four leaves have been removed from the first text quire: A1, 2, 5 and 6. A1 and A2 preceded the preliminary note, but it is not clear that the manuscript ever had a title-page, so they may have served merely as additional endleaves. The manuscript is further complete and in very good condition, with only an occasional spot or very minor marginal defect. The binding is soiled, somewhat rubbed and wrinkled, and 3 of the 4 ties are mostly lost, but it is still good.

        Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Geographica ac Hydrographica Tabula.

      1652 - Amsterdam, 1652. Original colour. 445 x 560mm. Restoration to margin and centre fold. This magnificent planisphere manages to include 30 separate illustrations in its panels. Along the top and bottom are equestrian portraits of the Twelve Cæsars of Tacitus. The four corners feature female allegorical figures of the Continents, with Europe as a shepherdess, Asia seated on a camel, Africa on a crocodile and America on an armadillo! The left border has prospects of Rome, Amsterdam, Jerusalem and Tunis, interspersed with illustrations of European, Asian and African dress. The right border is given over completely to America: the prospects of Mexico City, Havana, Pernambuco and Todos os Santos Bay are separated by vignettes of North American natives, South Americans and the giants of the Magellan Strait. Originally published in 1639, most of the cartography has been copied from Blaeu, although Arctic America has been extended, as has the St Lawrence River. This state has the date 1652, the year of Visscher's death, added. SHIRLEY: 350.

A.D 1652 - 8vo., (24) + 256pp., bookplate and inkstamps of Los Angeles Board of Law library> on endpapers (not elsewhere), contemporary calf, later reback and label, minor wear, else a very good crisp copy. First edition. Wing Z 17. Madan 2210. Thomason E.1319(1). Zouche attempts here 'to popularize the Roman Civil Law, or at least to show that its study is still worth pursuing. The cases are all from the Digest, and in English, and are quite different from those in the Specimen Quaestionum> in 1653. The work falls into two parts, each with seven titles, part I concerning Rights, and part 2 (p.167) concerning Judicature.' [Madan, III, p.22]. Cases and questions resolved> (1652) 'is a casebook of problems taken from the texts of Justinian's Digest,> with full references, primarily for the use of students of the civil law. It was originally intended to be published in &#145;the proper language of the civil law&#146;, but, he explained cautiously, it appeared exceptionally in English, &#145;that others also might discerne that the study of that learning conduceth to the knowledge of some things worthy of consideration&#146;. Although the Roman fact-situations might appear &#145;forraigne&#146;, the doubts expressed and their resolution could be applied to more familiar topics.' [Peter Stein in ODNB].

Sanson's duties in this coved position included advising the King on matters of Geography and compiling the royal cartographic archive. Sanson's corpus of some three hundred maps initiated the golden age of French Cartography. Engraved by Antoine de Winter. Condition: Excellent given age.
