[Mexican Mining]
[Mexico, 1577. [235] leaves. Contains four rough maps showing four mine sites in Taxco. Folio. Modern full vellum with ties. Some staining. Worming, only occasionally affecting text. Very good. In three-quarter morocco and cloth clamshell box. While the conquistadores came to Mexico largely in hope of finding vast mineral wealth, they were for the most part disappointed in the first two decades after the Conquest. It was not until the early 1540s that a great lode of silver was developed in Mexico, when a great bonanza was discovered by Don Luis Castilla at Taxco, near Mexico City. Little has been known previously of Castilla's career. He came to Mexico from Spain in 1530. In 1536 there is a record of an oath of allegiance by him to Nuno de Guzman. He became Alcalde Mayor of Taxco in 1542, apparently having made his great strike there several years earlier. The first record of mining at Taxco is a grant of Hernan Cortes, the conqueror of Mexico, to his sons, giving them the right to mine there. Castilla was related to Cortes through the latter's second wife, and it is probable that this is how he became involved in Taxco. The wealth of the mine Castilla developed was enormous. Some idea of its magnitude can be had from the description of Castilla's household given by Dorantes de Carranza: "He maintained a large household, because he was a great lord with such grandness, many horses, servants, arms, persons and retinue, that it was as brilliant as a household of any scale. And such were the riches that he took from the mine at Taxco, that he could make all this sho … [Click Below for Full Description]

For instance; the first paradox discussed is Mizlaud describing how celestial bodies, such as the planets and stars give light to shine on their own. Mizauld also stated in this and other works that the moon, in combination with the Sun, and important repercussions for human procreation.

BODIN, Jean.
Paris: Jacques de Puys, 1577. Folio (330 x 213 mm). Later 18th-century sheep over patterned blue paper boards, skilfully rebacked preserving the original spine with red calf label, compartments elaborately ruled and decorated in gilt, vellum corners. 2 ownership inscriptions to title page and a few annotations to the text. Extremities worn and boards scuffed, corners bumped, hinges cracked but firm, a little worm damage to endpapers, infrequent dampstain and spotting to contents with a few small punctures to lower margins, overall a very good copy. Woodcut title page device, headpieces, and initials. Third edition (the second authorised) of Bodin's masterpiece, which "had an immense influence all over Europe. This is a re-setting of the original edition of 1576, with a pagination jump from 519 to 552 and with 54 terminal pages of contents. The work is, in effect, the first modern attempt to create a complete system of political science. Its basis was the Politics of Aristotle, and it was through Bodin that Aristotle's work came to exercise the influence on modern political thinking which has made him the father of modern democracy. Bodin was not content merely to reproduce his master, however; he added considerably from his own experience. Although like most sixteenth-century writers he approved of absolute government, he demanded its control by constitutional laws, in which respect he foreshadowed the development during the seventeenth century of the idea of the 'social contract'. Thus Bodin was the first to set out clearly the argument round which most political discussio … [Click Below for Full Description]

BODIN, Jean.
Paris: Jacques de Puys, 1577. Folio (330 x 213 mm). Later 18th-century sheep over patterned blue paper boards, skilfully rebacked preserving the original spine with red calf label, compartments elaborately ruled and decorated in gilt, vellum corners. 2 ownership inscriptions to title page and a few annotations to the text. Extremities worn and boards scuffed, corners bumped, hinges cracked but firm, a little worm damage to endpapers, infrequent dampstain and spotting to contents with a few small punctures to lower margins, overall a very good copy. Woodcut title page device, headpieces, and initials. Third edition (the second authorised) of Bodin's masterpiece, which "had an immense influence all over Europe. This is a re-setting of the original edition of 1576, with a pagination jump from 519 to 552 and with 54 terminal pages of contents. The work is, in effect, the first modern attempt to create a complete system of political science. Its basis was the Politics of Aristotle, and it was through Bodin that Aristotle's work came to exercise the influence on modern political thinking which has made him the father of modern democracy. Bodin was not content merely to reproduce his master, however; he added considerably from his own experience. Although like most sixteenth-century writers he approved of absolute government, he demanded its control by constitutional laws, in which respect he foreshadowed the development during the seventeenth century of the idea of the 'social contract'.

Anvers, Christophe Plantin, 1577. In-4 de 194, (1) pp., vélin ivoire, filet doré en encadrement sur les plats, médaillon ovale azuré, dos lisse orné de palettes et de fleurons dorés, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque). Édition originale de ce recueil de poésie sacrée et historique illustrée. Ces pièces en vers latins, imprimées dans une élégante typographie italique, sont dédiées à divers hommes d'Église. Elles ont pour sujets la vie du Christ et des saints, mais aussi l'histoire contemporaine, comme la bataille de Lépante (1571) et autres affrontements navals contre les Turcs. Le Rerum Sacrarum Liber est illustré d'un titre-frontispice armorié et de 55 figures en taille-douce inscrites dans des encadrements d'enroulements de cuirs. Ces compositions, Enfance du Christ, une partie de la Passion, vies et martyres des saints, et scènes de batailles, ont été exécutées d'après les dessins de Bernardino Passaro. Parmi celles-ci, on remarque la représentation du Jugement dernier (p. 74) qui démarque la fresque de Michel-Ange de la chapelle Sixtine. Une seule gravure, la Résurrection de Lazare, est dépourvue d'encadrement (p. 88) ; c'est aussi l'unique planche signée par Jérôme Wierix, reprise d'un ouvrage d'Arias Montanus publié en 1571. Originaire de Brescia, Lorenzo Gambara (1496-1585), après des études à Padoue, s'installa à Rome où il resta toute sa vie attaché à la cour papale, notamment à Alessandro Farnèse, le futur Grégoire XIII. Il publia plusieurs ouvrages de poésie chrétienne néo-latine. Bel exemplaire en vélin doré de l'époque. Des bibliothèques du Docteur Gratiano … [Click Below for Full Description]

(GENTILLET INNOCENT)
Jacob Stoer], 1577. Cm. 17,5; pp. (12) 20, 708 (12). Affascinante legatura del tempo in pelle di scrofa con impressioni a secco ai piatti e titoli ms. al dorso a 4 nervi. Interessanti annotazioni ms. di mano antica alla sguardia anteriore e al frontespizio. Minimi segni del tempo e macchiette alla legatura, cerniera anteriore rinforzata, alone limitato al margine esterno delle prime carte, peraltro esemplare nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Innocent Gentillet (1535 ca. - 1595), avvocato calvinista francese, si rifugiò a Ginevra per motivi politico-religiosi e fu costretto abbandonare ogni carica pubblica. Convinto riformatore, si dedicò alla dottrina politica, pubblicando in francese nel 1576 uno dei primi attacchi organici al pensiero machiavelliano, divenendo quindi un precursore dell'antimachiavellismo insieme a Francois Hotman. Rara prima edizione in latino, uscita presso i medesimi torchi un anno dopo l'editio princeps. Cfr. Kvk; Brunet, II, 1535..

Wier (Weyer), Johann.
Basel Oporinus, 1577. (25 x 19,5 cm). 6 (richtig 5) S., Sp. 7-134, 3 nn. Bll. (so komplett). Mit ganzseitigem Holzschnitt-Porträt verso Titel, einem Textholzschnitt und einer großen Holzschnitt-Initiale. Moderner Pappband im Stil der Zeit. Erste Ausgabe der Kurzfassung seiner 1563 erstmals erschienenen Dämonologie "De praestigiis daemonum". Dieses mehrfach aufgelegte und übersetzte Werk kam auf den Index der verbotenen Bücher und wurde zum Hauptwerk für alle Gegner des Hexenwahns. Es trug auch dazu bei, die Intensität der Hexenverfolgung zu reduzieren. - Weyer (1515-1588), Stadtarzt in Arnheim und Leibarzt von Herzog Wilhelm von Jülich-Kleve-Berg, erlangte besonders als Gegner der Hexenprozesse Berühmtheit. Er sah in den vermeintlichen Hexen kranke und vom Teufel irregeleitete Frauen, die der Melancholie verfallen waren und einer medizinischen Behandlung bedurften. "Weyer believed that many witches and supposed victims of witchcraft were suffering from mental illnesses. He was one of the first physicians to take a major interest in mental diseases and may be credited as one of the earliest psychiatrists" (Heirs of Hippocrates 301). - Gering gebräunt und am Rand stockfleckig. Titelblatt angefasert (ohne Textverlust). Vier Textblätter sorgsam restauriert (ein Blatt mit geringem Buchstabenverlust). Einband leicht berieben, sonst gut erhalten. - Hirsch/H. V, 916; VD16 W 2652; Adams W 141; Caillet 11433; Durling 4733; Hayn-Gotendorf III, 256 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

MONTE, Guidobaldo del (1545-1607)
Girolamo Concordia : 1577 : Pesaro : Folio: [maltese cross]-2[maltese cross]4(blank 2[maltese cross]4) A-2K4 (-2K4 blank), 139 of 140 leaves, ff. [8] 130 [1], errata and colophon on 2K3, wanting the blank 2K4. Roman letter, double rule border to each page, a fine series of woodcut initial letters and 265 woodcut diagrams in the text. There is a cancel slip pasted to f. 82. : The most important treatise on mechanics since Archimedes and one which had a significant influence on Galileo's science. This is a fascinating and revealing copy of a book known to have been used at Spain's first scientific academy; the extensive annotations are those of a student under the instruction of Julio Cesar Ferrufino (c. 1535-1604), the academy's Professor of Mathematics.Guidobaldo's Mechnicorum.Writing after the restoration of Archimedes by Commandino in 1558 and 1565, Guidobaldo 'had before him a pattern of the most fruitful method conceivable of reasoning mathematically about physical matters' (Drake, p. 46). He rejected the medieval traditions of Jordanus and others and has been criticised for an overzealous dedication to classical methods: 'But if, in his treatment of simple machines, he fell short of a principle that would unify statics and dynamics, his Mechanics was nevertheless the first truly systematic attempt at a rigorous treatment of the field, and it paved the way for Galileo's synthesis of all the traditions that influenced mechanics in the sixteenth century' (Drake p. 48). 'The most valuable and original section of the work [which was adopted by Galileo] deals with the analy … [Click Below for Full Description]
