On trouve une allusion à ce texte dans une lettre de 1575 et dans les Demeures de l'âme. Peu après, un confesseur -Yanguas ?- lui aurait demandé de brûler le manuscrit, car le sujet était scabreux : l'Inquisition venait d'ordonner l'arrestation de Louis de Léon, précisément à cause de sa traduction du Cantique des cantique.

Par contre, elle a sévèrement poursuivi celui du Père Gratien. Il figurait encore dans l'Indice Ultimo de los libros prohibidos publié à Madrid en 1790.

         La Perspective, Avec la Raison des Ombres et Miroirs

      Finely engraved title & numerous fine engravings in the text (many full-page, one double-page). 5 p.l., 49 leaves, [16] leaves. Large folio, cont. vellum over boards (some dampstaining, mostly marginal, to about nine leaves, some light browning). London: Jan Norton, 1612 [with added engraved imprint beneath sill of the compartment: "Francfort ches la vefue de Hulsius"]. First edition, second issue (see below), of this rare perspective manual by the architect and engineer Salomon de Caus (d. 1626), a prominent theorist of perspective, who was renowned as an inventor of mechanical contrivances, utilitarian and entertaining. The book is of great interest for its material on the phenomenon of anamorphosis, a distorted projection or drawing of anything, which, when viewed from a particular point, or by reflection from a suitable mirror, appears regular and properly proportioned. The work presents a large number of perspective problems, including intricate projections and optical illusions, drawings of shadows in perspective, and the mirroring of objects. "In the sum total of his work, this book takes its place as one chapter of a vast treatise on the wonders of the world, in which the harmony of sounds and shapes, the mechanics of vision and of hydraulic machines are presented on the same level. Although the author writes in the sober style of a technician, he is deeply aware of the poetry of his subjects."-BaltruÅ¡aitis, Anamorphic Art, p. 37. Caus was born in the Dieppe region, but moved a great deal in Flemish and German circles in which anamorphoses seem to have been particularly in vogue. He was in the service of the Archduke Albert II of Austria (1605-10), then in England where he worked in the Richmond Gardens and for Henry, Prince of Wales, and finally with Frederick V, Elector of the Palatinate and King of Bohemia (1619). He spent the final years of his life in France. A cosmopolitan and intellectual with wide-ranging interests, he wrote on music, automata, on solar clocks and on Euclidean proportions. This book appears to be the second book published in England to make use of folding or pop-up flaps in diagrams (the first being John Dee's Euclid of 1570). Our book is an interesting example of shared printing: Richard Field printed the preliminaries, the letterpress of Chap. 10 of "Ombres" and all of "Miroirs" while Mommart in Brussels printed the rest. The first issue is dated 1611; our issue is dated a year later with a slightly altered imprint (see NSTC 4868.7 & 4869 for details). A fine copy preserved in a black morocco-backed box. Several of the engravings have been slightly shaved at outer or lower margins. ? Kemp, The Science of Art, pp. 112, 118, & 183.

         L'Arte Vetraria distinta in Libri Sette...Ne quali si scoprono, effetti maravigliosi, & insegnano segreti bellissimi, del Vetro nel Fuoco & altre cose curiose

      1612. Woodcut printer's device on title. 4 p.l., 114, [6] pp. Small 4to, 18th-cent. vellum over boards (light browning & foxing). Florence: Giunta, 1612. First edition of the first and most famous textbook devoted to glassmaking. "Neri is remembered only for L'arte vetraria (1612), a little book in which many, although by no means all, of the closely guarded secrets of glassmaking were printed for the first time. He recommended that glass be made from rocchetta (a fairly pure sodium sesquicarbonate from the Near East) and tarso, which he described as a kind of marble but which must have been some form of silica. He did not indicate the source of the necessary proportion of lime. The main part of the text deals with the coloring of glass with metallic oxides to give not only clear and uniform colors but also various veined effects. There are chapters on making lead glass of high refractive index and enamel (opaque) glass by the addition of tin oxide."-D.S.B., X, p. 23. Neri (d. ca. 1614), appears to have learned the art of glassmaking at Murano, near Venice, and to have continued his studies of this and other chemical arts in the Low Countries. "The greater part of the book is devoted to the coloration of glass, both to imitate gemstones and for the use of enamellers."-Singer et al, History of Technology, III, p. 217-(& see the detailed discussion of this work on pp. 217-19). This work went through numerous editions and translations; the first edition is rare. Very good copy. Engraved armorial bookplate of the Italian poet Domenico Rosa Morando (1734-1824). ? Duncan 9299.

         Le Nozze di Cana

      1612. Acquaforte, 1612, firmata in lastra in basso. Esemplare di secondo stato con l'indirizzo del Remondini. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata priva di filigrana ma databile alla fine del XVII secolo, con sottili margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Questa stampa riproduce nello stesso verso e con fedeltà un dipinto firmato e datato 1561, eseguito dal Tintoretto per il Refettorio del Convento dei Crociferi a Venezia. In seguito allo scioglimento della corporazione venne trasferito nella Sacrestia della chiesa di S. Maria della Salute, dove si trova tuttora. In origine centinata, la tela venne successivamente trasformata in rettangolare nel corso del Settecento. Negli angoli superiori della stampa si trovano gli emblemi dei Crociferi, confraternita che commissionò il dipinto del Tintoretto ed alla quale apparteneva padre Opilio Verfa a cui la stampa è dedicata.

         Globus Coelestris

      1612. Carta geografiaca tratta dal "Tabularum Geographicarum contractarum" di Petrus Bertius, edizione latina del 1616. L'opera contiene 219 carte che illustrano questa nuova versione della geografia del Bertius, per la prima volta pubblicata nel 1600 con le carte di Barent Langenes e Cornelis Claesz. Le carte derivano dal grande Mercator/Hondius atlas, delle quali molte rappresentano una semplice riduzione. Incisione in rame, carta leggermente brunita, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. A superior rival to the pocket Ortelius atlas appeared about 1598, under the imprint of Barent Langenes and Cornelis Claesz. Claesz also published the Tabularum Geographicarum Contractarum, edition with texy by Petrus Bertius, in 1600. After the death of Cornelis Claesz in 1609, Jodocus Hondius II became the new publisher of the work, composed by 7 parts in 1, with engraved title - page and 220 full - page engraved maps in text. All the maps were newly engraved and slightly larger in size, because Hondius was not able to acquire the original plates. With the new plates the work was definitely improved and enjoyed a growing demand of the public, which at that time had the choice between the Atlas Minor by Mercator and Bertius' Tabularum Geographicarum. The 219 plates, with the oval world map appearing twice, were produced to illustrate a new version of the geography of Bertius, published in 1616. According to King, their correct attribution is by Hondius, after Mercator and Hondius, taken from Bertius, who was only responsible for revising his text again. Copperplates, in very good conditions. Amsterdam Amsterdam 135 100

         [Iérakosophion. Rei Accipitrariae Scriptores nunc primum editi. Accessit kunosuphion liber de cura canum, ex biblioth. Regia Medicea ...].

      1612. [Lutetiae, sumptibus Hieronymi Drouart, 1612], in-4 leg. coeva in piena pergamena, tagli dorati, pp. [12], 111 [ma 211], [1], 120. Contiene: "De re accipitraria", "Cynosophium. Liber de cura canum", "Epistola de re accipitraria, catalanica lingua", "Excerpta ex libro incerti..." (tutti nella prima sezione, pp. 211) e "Hierakosophion, sive De re accipitraria, libri III" di Jacques August de Thou (seconda sezione, pp. 120). L'edizione, a cura di Nicolas Rigault, era formata da tre parti, con occhietti, paginazioni e registri separati. Qui manca l'intera prima parte che conteneva il front. e testi in greco (pp. [16], 278, [16]). Con ogni probabilità - la legatura è seicentesca - l'esemplare nasce così. Importante e rara raccolta di testi, dedicata alla falconeria e ai cani da caccia.

      - Antwerpen, [ca. 1612]. Oblong 8vo (18.8 x 12.4 cm). 19 beautiful contemporarily hand-coloured engravings including the engraved title page depicting Orpheus charming and taming the birds and beasts of the forest. All are mounted on contemporary paper and nicely framed in five sections in a tortoise-shell setting.= An exceptional suite in a contemporary coloured state. Of the 19 plates, only 2 have the normally present numbering and engraved signature: "Adrian. Collaert fecit et excud". The other 16 are most probably some sort of proof prints before letters and numbers, which is very unusual and completely unknown in any bibliography nor was it known by the leading expert, Sam Segal, whom we consulted. He also confirmed the contemporary colouring, all done in the same brilliant hand. Nissen quotes an engraved title and 19 engravings; therefore we are lacking one plate only, which makes this an almost complete set of the already very rare suite of the animalium. The plates depict men (mostly in hunting scenes), apes, cows, bulls, horses, lions, dogs, camels, goats, deer, pigs, elephants, wolves, rhinoceroses, a chameleon, etc. -one of the nicest engravings on animals from this great Flemish artist. A few plates with a small and old repaired tear and one with a tiny damaged spot in the image, some of the mounts with old paper repairs, but overall in very good condition, with great vibrant colouring, some heightened with gold.

         Theophrasti Notationes Morum. Isaacus Casaubonus recensuit, in Latinum sermonem vertit et Libro Commentario illustravit. Edition tertia recognita, ac infinitis in locis ultra praecedentes aucta et locupletata. Cum indice necessario.

      Lugduni, Viduam Ant. De Harsy, 1612. - in-8. 8ff. 367pp. 6ff. Demi veau, dos à nerfs orné (Reliure du XIXs.). Première Edition définitive de la version donnée par le grand helléniste protestant Isaac Casaubon (1559-1614) des Caractères de Théophraste, avec ses commentaires. Casaubon avait d'abord publié en 1592 une édition partielle du texte grec de Théophraste contenant 23 caractères, accompagnée de la traduction latine et de commentaires. La présente édition offre, pour la première fois, la version définitive de son travail avec 5 caractères supplémentaires et un commentaire beaucoup plus étendu, qui occupe les pp. 81 à 350. La première édition du texte grec des célèbres "Caractères" du philosophe grec, vit le jour à Nuremberg en 1527, accompagnée de la version latine par Pirkheimer. Mais c'est cette traduction commentée de Casaubon qui fit autorité. Le savant Scaliger lui écrivait notamment, après en avoir pris connaissance : "A peine j'eus gouté à tes 'Charactères de Théophraste' j'en fus transporté. Je ne pus m'empêcher de faire ton éloge avec toute la chaleur que donne l'amitié et cependant tout ce que j'ai pu dire reste très en dessous de ce que mérite ton génie". Le travail de Casaubon a servi de modèle aux études ultérieures et notamment à La Bruyère qui traduisit d'abord Théophraste, avant de l'imiter et d'ajouter à ceux du philosophe grec, ses propres "Caractères" inspirés des mœurs de son temps. "Il semble établi que la traduction de Théophraste a été faite par La Bruyère surtout d'après la traduction latine de Casaubon complétée par le commentaire de cet érudit" (Julien Benda). Sur une page de garde figure cette inscription de l'époque: "Guido Patinus, Bellovacus, Doctor Medicus Parisiensis et Professor regius. 1656. Foelix qui potuit". Il s'agit de l'inscription autographe de l'écrivain et médecin français Guy Patin (1602-1672), ami de Gabriel Naudé et de Jean Riolan, à qui ce volume a appartenu. Bon exemplaire. Cf. Julien Benda in: "Œuvres Complètes de La Bruyère" (Pleiade, 1951). [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

         Batavorum cum Romanis Bellum.

      Antwerp, Philip Lisaert, 1612 - Oblong 4to. 36 numbered engraved plates by Antonio Tempesta after Vaenius. 18th century mottled calf, gilt; spine neatly restored. A series of allegorical engravings illustrating the armed struggle between the ancient Dutch tribes and their Roman oppressors inspired by Tacitus's history. Each plate bears an engraved legend below in Flemish and and in Latin; a detailed explanation is printed on the otherwise blank verso. This historicist work, very popular in its time, was achieved by two great artists: the designer, Otto Vaenius (Otto van Veen 1556-1629), court painter to Alessandro Farnese, was influenced by the Italian mannerists but had developed his own style anticipating the Flemish baroque of his pupil Peter Paul Rubens; the engraver, Antonio Tempesta (1555-1630), specialized in battle scenes. Plate I, signed 'Ant.Tempesta f. Anno 1611', shows 'Roma' and 'Batavia' in battle dress with respective scenic backgrounds, symbolizing the two nations; 15 other plates bear Tempesta's monogramme. The plates depict heroic events, sieges, and battle scenes. A good copy with an English 18th century provenance in top blank margin of title with manuscript entries 'Given by J[oh]n Greenwood' and 'J[oh]n Williams 1742'; English armorial bookplate with crested crown and motto 'In domino confido'.

Als set in 1 lijst.Reinier Nooms - genaamd "Zeeman" (ca. 1623 - Amsterdam- 1664), was naast veelgevraagd tekenaar en vermaard marineschilder ook een begaafd etser. Dit werk neemt dan ook binnen zijn oeuvre een aparte plaats in. Van in totaal 154 etsen zijn sommige uitgegeven als losse exemplaren, de meeste echter behoren tot series van telkens acht of twaalf prenten, die als een reeks bijeengebonden werden verkocht aan liefhebbers en collectioneurs.Het werk van de Nooms als etser, staat op eenzame hoogte in de 17e-eeuw. Het is tekeningachtig en spontaan en veel meer dan een portret van schepen. Nooms stoffeerde zijn etsen met schitterende figuurtjes en atmosferische luchten. Ze roepen een prachtig beeld op van het dagelijks leven op en rond het water in de Gouden Eeuw. Amsterdam was toentertijd het centrum van de wereldhandel en dit aspect werd door Nooms verheven tot het belangrijkste thema in zijn prenten.Prijs: € 4.950,- (incl. lijst, incl. 21% BTW).

         The First Part of the Historie of England

      London, Printed by Nicholas Okes 1612. - 4to., pp. [8], 184, 189-228, 237-240, [4], with both terminal blanks (the second employed as the rear pastedown); title-page within a woodcut border (McKerrow & Ferguson 248); a fine copy in contemporary limp vellum; contemporary ownership inscription 'JHolles' of Sir John Holles (1567-1637), with underlining throughout and marginal annotations, often lengthy, on c.17 pages, a couple in his hand but most in the neat italic hand of his son, also Sir John Holles (1595-1666); later sale note to front endpaper 'The price is –4s', and to inner margin of final blank 'Em[p]tus 18o Martij 1691/2 ad biblia deaurata in agris Lincolniensibus minoribus solidi unici pretio' – evidently a fixed-price sale of which we cannot find record.First edition, the first part of Daniel's influential prose history, from the Saxons just prior to the Norman Conquest to the death of Stephen in 1154. This is from the true 'private impression, which is but of a few coppies for my friends', printed on large paper with a crown watermark (see below). Such copies were apparently given to Camden, Cotton, Peter Manwood and others including, evidently, Sir John Holles, who later also received a copy of Daniel's Collection of the History of England (1618, now at the Bodleian, annotated 'The author Sam. Daniel gave me this book'). Sir John Holles (c. 1567-1637), MP for Nottinghamshire, later Baron Houghton and first Earl of Clare, had a successful military career (in the Netherlands and in Hungary), before turning diplomat and courtier. For his brief rise at court he relied on the same unfortunate patrons as Daniel – Prince Henry (for whom Daniel wrote Tethys Festival), and Robert Carr, Earl of Somerset, dedicatee of the present work. 'Eloquent, courteous, and affable, [Holles] was remarkable for his "felicity of conversation" and "cheerful gravity" He was also capable of writing letters in most of the principal western languages' (History of Parliament). In 1610 Holles was appointed to the important position of Comptroller of Prince Henry's household, but the young prince's unexpected death in late 1612, and Carr's implication in the murder of Thomas Overbury in 1615-6, scuppered his ambitions. Holles's son, the second Earl (1595-1666), was a precocious child who accompanied his father to the Netherlands in 1605, at the age of nine or ten, and drew up some manuscript observations of his journey; during c.1614-6 he was on an embassy in Paris, and he later served as an MP. Holles senior seems to have employed his son as an amanuensis or secretary – a commonplace- and letter-book book from the Portland papers (now British Library Add MS 70505) that begins in his hand is continued mid-sentence by his son, in whose hand is preserved another letterbook covering his father's correspondence of 1598-1617. Two minor marginal annotations here are in the hand of Holles senior, the rest in that of his son, but quite plausibly with his father's input. They were careful readers, and the marginal glosses are often substantial and lengthy, with a strong element of commentary on the duties of princes – 'Love and liberality ar ye best meanes to strengthen and establish a young king in a new gotten kingdome' – treachery – Edric 'played wth his faith as children do wth sticks and was like ye fish sepia wch is said to trouble all ye waters he comes in' – and tyranny – 'A tirants peace is blood, usurpers are never quiet in their mind till thy have made all away tht have any title to their usurped state.' A passage on the death of Hardicanute elicits the further observation that 'seldome doth an usurpers line continue 3 descents', followed by a long list of examples from William Rufus up to Richard III.Although the entire edition of The First Part was claimed as Daniel as 'a private impression', subsequent copyright wrangles reveal that Okes must have printed a larger number of copies than is plausible for private distribution (most copies being on small paper with mixed crown and pot w

         A Discoverie of the True Causes Why Ireland Was Never Entirely Subdued, Nor Brought Under Obedience of the Crowne of England, Untill the Beginning of His Majesties Happie Raigne

      [4], 1-186, 189-287pp, [1], Later full calf, raised bands, spine in six panels, title label to second panel, remaining panels with central lozenge shaped tool in gilt, covers with double fillet gilt border. Recently rebacked to style. Minor rubbing to extremities. Text block slightly cropped at head. Internally some minor browning and staining, but generally fairly bright. Lacks A1, which is blank apart from the signature letter 'A' to foot, small flaw to title catching fore-edge, with an ink number '3' to title, the head of G1 has '35 comes after 50' in ink (a legacy of signature G being bound before F - now rectified), the final page is blank (sometimes found with errata). Sir John Davies, "firmly believed that the successful government of Ireland could not be achieved through military conquest alone, but depended instead on laying the legal foundations for a civil society ... From 1606 he was busy with the management of the work deriving from the establishment of the commissions for defective titles and the implementation of arrangements for the surrender and regrant of lands by tenants of the crown. This was a crucial element in his long-standing campaign to entrench the full-scale operation of property law in Ireland as the bulwark of English rule, and was designed specifically to undermine and finally to abolish Gaelic para-legal forms of land tenure and inheritance which were much more fluid, based on kinship and the sept, and the tribal allegiances underpinning them ... Davies was long absorbed in the establishment of the new plantation ... In all he obtained 5500 acres ... In 1612 he published his 'Discoverie of the True Causes Why Ireland was Never Entirely Subdued nor brought under obedience of the crown of England until his Majesties Happie Reigne', which argued for the full establishment of a system of law based on land rather than blood" (ODNB) It was this use of the law which apparently brought Ireland "back within the fold of civilization" (Oxford History of the Irish Book, Volume III, page 254)

         Indiae Orientalis, insularumque adiacentium typus.

      1612. Incisione in rame, coloritura d'epoca, mm 355x500 tratta da "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum", opera che ebbe un successo immediato e numerosissime riedizioni. Il "Theatrum" è considerato il primo atlante moderno, comprendente carte di tutte le zone del mondo; la geniale intuizione di Abraham Ortel (1528-1598), che latinizzò il proprio nome in Ortelius, fu quella di riunire in un unico corpus la produzione cartografica eterogenea del periodo, costituendo la base per un'impresa editoriale di enorme successo, pubblicata dal 1570 al 1612. Di grande livello decorativo la carta riporta informazioni da Marco Polo in poi e risulta una sintesi di tutte le più moderne informazioni dell'area. Taiwan viene mappata per la prima volta, indicata come I. Fermosa. Oltre all'India ed all'arcipelago indonesiano citati nel titolo, la carta rappresenta anche le regioni dell'estremo oriente, compresi Cina e Giappone. Bel cartiglio decorato in basso a sinistra e stemma nobiliare nell'angolo superiore dello stesso lato. Testo italiano al verso.Ottime condizioni generali, con piccolo rinforzo vicino allo stemma portoghese, visibile al verso. Ort 166; (Koeman Atlantes Neerlandici III): 48; Van den Broecke, 166 Copper engraving, original color, mm 355x500, from "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum", the first modern atlas of the world, published from 1570 to 1612. One of the earliest maps of Southeast Asia which bears title in a decorative strapwork cartouche, coat of arms of Portugal, seas stippled and decorated with ships, whales and mermaids. The privilegium is found in the lower right corner.Based on Mercator's world map of 1589 and Portuguese sources, the map includes information drawn from Marco Polo. The East Indies are a group of islands with Java and Borneo particularly misshapen. Taiwan is mapped for the first time as I. Fermosa in the 'tail' of a kite-shaped Japan. It is also a synthesis of the best available information on Southeast Asia and the East Indian Islands and is a 'milestone' in the cartography of Southeast Asia and the East Indian Islands bringing the knowledge of that time to a very wide audience through the numerous editions of the Theatrum. Very good condition with a minor china reinforcement near portuguese coat of arms

         Peruviae auriferae regionis typus Didaco Mendezio auctore (with:) La Florida Auctore Hieron. Chiaves-Guastecan Reg

      1612. Copper engraving,original color, mm 340x470; italian text and number 9 on verso. From the 1612 edition. Good condition in very early color, partly oxidated like usual for the italian 1612 edition.A very early map of the Spanish empire in the New World, made up of 3 maps on one sheet, the largest showing central and South America (Peru); the second showing Florida and the southeast; and the third, Guastecan (Huasteca), a northeastern province of Mexico. The map of Florida is important as it is the first regional map of the southeastern section of North America.The map revealed little information on the interior of North America, but the details presented have been definitely linked with known features. The village of Aijx undoubtedly became known to the Spaniards as Ais, and the Mississippi, though distorted, appeared as the R.de S.Spiritu , the name given it by early Spanish explorers. Tascalisa lies on the map as closely as possible to where today's Tuscaloosa, Alabama is. The Chaves map published by Ortelius was, therefore, one of the earliest printed maps of the territory based on actual observations. Burden 57: "(La Florida) is one of the very few maps printed in the sixteenth century that was based upon original Spanish sources. They were very protective of their knowledge of the Americas, a considerable source of their wealth. The author of this map, Geronimo de Chaves, was the Cosmographer Royal to Philip II of Spain". The map of Florida is considered to be the first to show any interior detail of the present day United States, and was set the standard for mapping the region for the century to come.

         Croc, Vernalis. [Crocus varieties].

      Frankfurt, Germany. Ca. 1612. - Engraving with handcolor, image 13 1/4 x 8 1/4 inches on sheet size 15 x 10 inches. Spot (approximately 1 inch circle) to lower left image, otherwise very good condition. From Emanuel Sweert's Florilegium, first issued in 1612, with five subsequent editions. "Emanuel Sweert, a Dutch florist, was at one time Praefectus of the gardens of the Emperor Rudolf II, and it was at his behest that the work was produced. Although it did not contain prices it also served as a catalogue of plants offered for sale by Sweert at the Frankfurt Fair." (de Belder catalogue). The intaglio processes of engraving and etching had only recently been applied to botanical illustration, allowing for a finer, more spontaneous line than the woodcut. This is a lovely image of crocus bulbs.
